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

    You know what, I think in an earlier OS version I couldn't access the Handoff option in settings without device ARPT so I used the kext to do that. I just checked my settings and whattayaknow, Handoff option is there without the kext. Thanks for the tip.

    Hmm, I just downloaded your EFI to see what you do for ARPT. Do you not use AirportBRCMFixup?

    Interesting! When I disable I0Mapper I get AppleVTD but lose my BRCM4360! ARPT still loads but I've got the slash across the wifi symbol. Investigating.

    Thunderbolt *2* + ASRock - Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX

    @qjman @scottkendall Try here. This is the path less traveled but can indeed work. No flashing. You'll need to be the build closest to your own. I'd try the Asrock z370 or the NUC 7...

    You still need to flash Thunderbolt firmware separately.

    Since I'm a tinkerer but also work around lots of activations I've got a designated USB drive for activations. If possible, it's a great move allowing you to either move from computer to computer like an iLok or to prevent de/re-activation. Check NI support if interested.

    Have you tried disabling Gatekeeper in Hackintool or Terminal? I don't know that it will help but its worth a shot.

    Thunderbolt Header 14-1 Pinout

    Currently, I'm using the EX4 without a header on an Asus Prime z370a-II. Works great but needs an SSDT. Needs to force load AppleThunderboltNHI.kext for sleep to work.

    @Feartech ocvalidate really is the best tool package. It saved my butt a while back when the parameters for ACPI/Patch changed but I had just copied and pasted my old Patch in.

    Apple Previews macOS 12 Monterey - Available Fall 2021

    I would build a Gigabyte z390 or z490 (budget pending). These are well documented and the support here is better than any company. If you want an Apple product I'd wait a moment as the industry catches up to Apple Silicon.
