2018 Macbook 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:

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.
