OWC Aura Pro SSD not recognized
I have a macbook pro 13” retina early 2015. I have High Sierra already installed on it and want to upgrade my internal SSD with the OWC Aura Pro 1TB for more storage. I followed instructions and swapped the PCIe SSD. Got into recovery mode but from Disk Util and Terminal typing diskutil list. My new SSD does not appear.
I the new SSD is inserted into the PCIe slot correctly and I should have the firmware since I am running 10.13.6 so any help as to why its not showing up for me to restore a time machine backup would be greatly appreciated.
The only thing i can think of is the Aura SSD is damaged.
I have since put my old SSD back in and to allow me to work.
Thanks sooooo much!!!

Just in case anyone else has the same problem: I couldn't install the OWC Aura Pro X2 in a Mid-2014 Macbook Air running High Sierra, as the SSD didn't show up in Recovery Mode Disk Utility. Aparently, the Internet Recovery Mode loads the OS which was originally installed, which does not support the OWC Aura.
This worked: Create a bootable High Sierra USB Installer. Boot from this, format the OWC Aura SSD from there, and install High Sierra from there.

Thanks Michael!! I had the exact same issue and was kind of stuck starting to consider reach OWC to return the SSD, but your post solved the issue! Thank you so much!

fyi - if you push and hold command - apple - R instead of apple - R you get a different internet recovery process which can see the aura x2

This works on the cylinder style Mac Pro's (Opt-Cmd-R). This allowed me to boot a recovery that would see the drive.
