How can you get any version of Linux to see the 2018 MacbookMacBook Pro TB 1TB SSD?

How can you get any version of linux to see the 2018 MBP/TB SSD during installation?

I have tried nvme_load=yes in place of quiet --- with Ubuntu 18.04.1 and Xubuntu 18.04. df -h results in only the system generated mounts and the installation media. The weekly live including firmware image of Debian also fails to discover the ssd.

I have located more information on the SSD. I found this information in the system profiler on OS X High Sierra.

Apple SSD Controller:
APPLE SSD AP1024M:
Capacity:   1 TB (1,000,555,581,440 bytes)
TRIM Support:   Yes
Model:  APPLE SSD AP1024M
Revision:   177.77.7
Serial Number:  C02829600M9JPD216
Link Width: x4
Link Speed: 8.0 GT/s
Detachable Drive:   No
BSD Name:   disk0
Partition Map Type: GPT (GUID Partition Table) . 
Removable Media:    No
S.M.A.R.T. status:  Verified 

lsblk from a xubuntu 18.04.1 live installer does not show any pcie or nvme devices.

Note: the installer and Gparted fail to list it. Typically these both require an unmounted drive to work with. So, it simply does not see the SSD. I read that this system uses a PCIE SSD , though im not sure how to send a kernel module to allow use of it.
