    The New Beginner's Guide to USB Port Configuration

    I never could get my custom Mac to recognize my old time machine usb 3 disk. It was recognized under Ubuntu with no problem, but the volume just would never mount under the macOS, even after I fixed my ports using your excellent guide. I ended up erasing the drive and reformatting it losing all...

    The New Beginner's Guide to USB Port Configuration

    This is how my customac sees the usb drive that I use for a Time Machine backup. I just won't mount the volume. Works fine in Ubuntu or Windows 10.

    The New Beginner's Guide to USB Port Configuration

    It worked! I reinstalled the port limit patches and the USBInjectall.kext and everything was smooth sailing from there on. The only problem I have now is that my USB Time Machine disk will mount, sort of. Actually, I can only see it in Disk Utility. It doesn't actually appear on the desktop or...

    The only third party kext I am aware of is GenericUSBXHCI. Should I uninstall it?

    The New Beginner's Guide to USB Port Configuration

    I have made some progress but I am not sure where to go from here. I'm attaching what I've got so far in the form of some images. I have discovered lots of HS ports but only two SS ports and the SS ports that I have don't map to the corresponding HS ports. For this reason I have not been able...

    Catalina install working but needs help booting

    Thanks. Getting rid of apfs.efi from the drivers really sped up my boot times made it possible for me to get Catalina installed.

    Catalina install working but needs help booting

    This is what I need. This little bit of text pops up on the screen right after the gigabyte logo. When booting up. But it is absent on the drive that has Catalina. If I boot up my Mohave Drive and then switch to the Catalina Drive when I get to the clover window it boots up. How do I get this...

    Catalina install working but needs help booting

    I should mention another thing, I've got Catalina on a Samsung EVO 970 Plus NVME SSD in an m2 slot updated to the latest firmware in Windows with the Samsung magician software.

    Catalina install working but needs help booting

    I should also say that the disk with Catalina on it is a disk that I had a bootable clone of my Mojave drive on. I updated that with the Catalina app from the app store.

If I select the Catalina Drive as my boot drive it gets to the apple boot screen and hangs up.. If I select my Mohave Drive to boot from and switch to the Catalina...

    This Combination Okay for an matx Build?

    Anybody see anything wrong with my selections here for an MATX build? Particularly, is the 3000mhz memory and 9th gen i5 a good match for this motherboard? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07J9YH428/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HHLX1R8/?tag=tonymacx86com-20...

    A Beginner's Guide to Creating a Custom USB SSDT

    Unless I learn something that helps me get to a solution under the Mac OS, I am going to get another disc up and running with windows 10 so that I can see if I can sort out my hardware problems, including getting my thunderbolt 3 card drivers installed

    A Beginner's Guide to Creating a Custom USB SSDT

    To answer my previous question, disabling the SSDT restored all of my native ports, but it did nothing to bring the PCI card online.

    A Beginner's Guide to Creating a Custom USB SSDT

    Problems with my motherboard forced me to resort to installing a PCI card with the hopes of getting some USB 3 Ports working. I installed one of the Inateck cards with fresco logic chips that is supposed to be compatible with the Mac OS. I installed the third-party USB controller kext...
