    Thanks so much for the reply! I actually finally built a Pi version and did it. Not too bad after all!

    @CaseySJ I want to do a final report back on the Bluetooth/WiFi situation you have been helping me with. After exhausting all options, I finally put back in the OSXWiFi card (for reference: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08428ZJV9/?tag=tonymacx86com-20) and everything instantly worked again...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Ok, back to report all of the results from many different tests. I tested the macOS NVMe is both M.2 slots with no changes. I tested the PCI card in every possible slot with no changes. I even tested moving the SATA drives because I know they can be affected by the NVMes and no changes. At this...

    My apologies, the YOUBO card is installed in the bottom short slot as was the OSXWiFi card. I have two 970 Evo Plus installed in the two NVMe slots. The only other PCI card I have installed is the Gigabyte 5700 RX Radeon XT in the top slot (x16). As for the power suggestion, I just tried letting...

    Wow that was a fast reply! My apologies for not including more detail in my post. Here is more info for you: - Wi-Fi shows in Network tab, but when you click "Turn Wi-Fi On" The Network Name selection lights up for a second then immediately goes grey again and the Status stays Off - I am using...

    I just decided to try the YOUBO card from Amazon and got it in last night. I noticed it came with a Fendi install disk which scared me a bit but I installed either way. The computer booted fine into Catalina, but Wifi is not working at all and bluetooth seems a bit quirky. Any thoughts on this...

    Thank you so much for your help. I actually installed the Gigabyte antenna as you recommended and it helped so I have ordered a much longer antenna to test for now.

    Thank you both @CaseySJ and @zk2004mb for the quick replies! I have been reading all day on how the 2.4GHz has major interference issues with bluetooth. I spun up a dedicated 5GHz band on the router and the computer struggled to connect to it. The few times it could, it could not see the...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    This guide has truly been amazing and my system is 99% there. I decided to go with OSXWIFI's BCM943602CDP card for Bluetooth 4.2 and AC Wifi but am getting serious lag with both the Bluetooth and Wifi. My Wifi speeds are a 1/5th of what my other devices are seeing and the bluetooth constantly...

    Using the mini-guide, I successfully flashed the onboard Titan Ridge chip on my Designare Z390. After getting a proper UUID onto the new bus, I have seemingly native TB3 showing in the system report. I plugged in my Apollo x6 and it works flawlessly. Thank you @CaseySJ for all of your hard...

    Thanks for the reply @jiffyslot but I was referring to the TB Titan Ridge flash for the onboard thunderbolt controller. I think I going to attempt anyway as this is the best way to run TB devices.

    @smashdownbabylon I am desperately need of this firmware flash but am pretty scared of doing it. There isn’t a chance you are in LA?

    How to get airplay working

    mpalomba3, I couldn't help but notice that you pulled off installing OSX on a Dell XPS 410 with a quad core processor. From what I have read, to get OSX on a 410, you need to downgrade the bios but in order to have a quad core in, you have to upgrade the bios. How did you do it? Any help is...
