    [Guide] Aero 15X V8 (High Sierra + Nvidia Graphics, Mojave, Catalina)

    Hey, thanks for your guide! I have the new Areo 15 Y9, and I'm having trouble booting into the High Sierra installer I created, using Unibeast then mounting EFI partition and pasting in your EFI folder (I figured other than the GPU and the very small difference in CPU -- 8750H vs 8950HK -- the...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Oops, found the problem. I'm using the PMDriver.kext hence the black screen on wake. My bad.

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    I unchecked the DSDT ACPI patches in the config.plist and copy-pasted the SSDT-X99.aml to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ . I have dual GPU though (one in PCI0 and one in PCI3), so that means I need to modify the SSDT-X99.aml? Is everything else in the SSDT-X99.aml compatible with an X99 ASUS board? I...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    I assume this is the same for Haswell-E on 10.13.4? I have a 5960X and I did the `./ssdtPRGen.sh -turbo 4400` SSDT.aml in the /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ , but my Geekbench Multi-Core is only 26615 compared to the 41091 you got. I know your 6950X is a 10-core compared to my 5960X 8-core, but I...

    Oh, I'm dumb, sorry I mistakenly thought the power management and sleep/wake were connected. I hadn't done those steps yet, sorry, I'm going to implement them now. Thanks for your help btw.

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Ok got audio working. Here's what I did. I have a Asus Rampage V Extreme so my Audio Codec is ALC1150. I installed the ALC1150.kext Codec using Multibeast. I downloaded toleda's patched X99 SSDT-HDEF-ALZA-1.aml from his Github and put it in the /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched folder as well as enabling...

    Ok enabled, no change whatsoever. I have a ASUS Rampage V Extreme Mobo. Should I be using Reltek ALC1150 or VoodooHDA kexts?

    Ok, done, thanks for the advice. I also kernel panic sometimes (http://imgur.com/gallery/ulYgUVu), but after a hard reset I'm able to boot up fine. Any help with audio?

    Sure. BIOS configuration is as detailed in the guide through step E.7. Attached is my EFI.zip. Not sure what's causing the freezes/crashes, so instructions on what I should do to gather bug/crash logs would be appreciated. Absolutely no audio devices, no HDMI audio, no USB audio, nothing. Any...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Hey I followed the guide and I'm booting High Sierra, but I have some issues. Sometimes when the screen flashes white (think when you search for something on a page and there's no matches) the whole computer freezes and lock up. Cursor even disappears completely, and I need to do a hard reset...

    You will be fine. Even if you mess up flashing the patched BIOS (which is unlikely), ASUS boards come with dual BIOS chips, so you will have backup options. Also ASUS boards' BIOS chips are replaceable, so if you badly mess up your flash you can buy a $5 replacement chip off eBay and just swap...

    Nope, you should be good. I did the BIOS UEFI patch, and I'm still able to boot Windows 10 completely fine.

    @ajschot Hi sorry for replying so late; I've been on a trip for work. I also saw kgp updated the EFI in the OP, so now I'm using the updated EFI template to boot. I also wiped my boot USB installer and reran the Mac App Store High Sierra installer terminal command to update to 10.13.3. Now I'm...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    @kgp Currently I have El Capitan booting of an External WD HDD, and I'm trying to fresh install High Sierra on a Samsung T3 external SSD. I followed the guide in the OP, but I can't seem to boot into the High Sierra installer. I'm attaching screenshots in the order that they occurred (left to...

    How to extend the iMac Pro to X99 [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Good catch! You're right, for some reason I forgot the nv_disable=1 argument on that boot; that was rather stupid on my part. However, I'm still unable to boot into the High Sierra installer. I'm attaching screenshots in the order that they occurred (left to right) (sorry for the blurry pics...
