    Problem #1:

    # /usr/libexec/pstorage/prepare_pstorage_drive /dev/nvme0n1 --ssd --noboot -y
    Given device /dev/nvme0n1 is not valid​

    W/A: comment out lines in 'def check...'

    Problem #2:

    # /usr/libexec/pstorage/prepare_pstorage_drive /dev/nvme0n1 --ssd --noboot -y
    Zeroing out beginning and end of /dev/nvme0n1...
    Partitioning /dev/nvme0n1...
    Waiting for kernel...

    Failed to wait for /dev/nvme0n11 disk
    Formatting /dev/nvme0n11 partition...
    Failed to format /dev/nvme0n11 disk: 1...​

    Partitions for such devices are named as /dev/nvme0n1pX

    W/A: add 'p' before '1' where needed.
