NVMe driver causing random crashes?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I started to get random kernel panics out of the sudden after a year of stable operation on Mojave.... Does anyone have an idea, what may cause this error?
It says something about NVMe driver....
I've got two adata sx6000 nvme drives i7-8700k Asus Rog Strix Z370-F gaming.

anyone?

@MaLd0n
That's weird, my EFI folder is womehow 15MB now instead of ca. 5 so I can't upload it here.
I put it on my Google drive:
 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PNrPJMsaFdlfesxfiRu1IhPXXGSARQgv/view?usp=sharing

Btw. after a full day of absolutely normal operation, the whole system just crashed and now boots in a really strange way: instead of a login screen it displays a message "macOS wants to make changes type in your login an password" then takes ages to do pretty much everything....spinnig wheel of death.... Please, help!

There's something terribly wrong with this machine... already crashed twice while running the RunMe.app before it finished... F4 on clover causes the computer to freeze... And disk utility refuses to even fsck the system drive (exit code 8 ) ... I'm starting to lose any hope to rescue this system or even the whole drive ;( I'll keep on trying to run the .app though

Thank you a lot @MaLd0n A brief report: The last EFI update rendered the OS completely unbootable (DSDT table read error), so I brought back the first EFI update you posted. It kinda boots, but the system is still unusable with random freezes every few seconds, and crashes every few minutes. I've tried creating the drive's image with no luck, even using time machine or migration assistant to clone the system ends up in kernel panic... Disk utility reports i/o error when trying fsck... all that leads me to believe that the drive simply failed.

A clean install on another ssd seems the only option unfortunately.  I'll try a firmware update to bring the device back to life, but the update procedure erases all the data anyway, so... I seem to have no other option than a full reinstall. It's gonna take ages (tons of software), but fortunately I have all my data backed up, it's just the system drive and all apps.... it could have been worse.

Anyway, thank you a lot for your assistance (again!) !

@MaLd0n ok, I will post the error as soon as I get back to my office BUT, guess what....

After a FULL reinstall on a NEW NVMe drive, and a few days of stable usage, te NVMe error ocurred AGAIN in the exact same manner: The machine refused to shut down, so after an hour of waiting I had to force reboot it, then it started with the message "Your computer was shut down because of a problem" an the same report as in the first post!

So that was not the drive's faut at all. I'm freaking out actually, cause another reinstall would be a complete mess, as I have a lot of work... :( Do you have any other idea what may cause this?

@MaLd0n ok, I guess I solved my problem.
I figured out, that the instability and crashes started to happen right after an app called "Google file stream" was updated...  So I started playing around with it and got the system to crash each and every time I tried to sunc or mount/unmount the network drive by google. Then I got rid of the app totally together with it's FS and preferences - the system is back to it's normal stability - rock solid without a single glitch.

So I guess this is a warning for everyone using this app - better switch to "Backup and Sync" - it doesn't mess with the filesystem or pretend to be a physical drive....
