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

    Tried connecting to my MacBook Pro (2013) through Thunderbolt, and it's running fine. I did run first aid after it froze the first time and it came back totally normal. Are there any tools we could use to diagnose what happened? Perhaps a log file somewhere?

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

    I have a Lacie d2 Thunderbolt 2 4TB external drive, and it's causing my hack to freeze when attempting to read any files from it. Is there a proper way to diagnose what's going on? It scares me when everything freezes and I have to restart. Tried hooking up the same drive through its USB 3.0...

    How did you move to AptioMemoryFix-64? I was under the impression that it wouldn't boot without the OSXAptioFix2Drv-Free2000. Is it an SMBIOS thing? I'm currently using iMac 19.1 sysdefs.

    There was nothing in that drivers folder actually. I had to move everything over manually. Where are the new versions of apfsDriverLoader-64 and EmuVariableUefi? Would like to use those instead :). My mistake, I think they are new versions. They were last updated in May and June 2019.

    Booted up fine after copying all the files from my drivers64UEFI folder to the new drivers folder. There are still 3 files left in the drivers64UEFI folder after the installation (see attached screenshot) Should these be removed? Clover automatically created that new drivers folder so I just...

    Hey everyone, just catching up. I'd like to update to the latest Clover version and start using VirtualSMC. However I've been reading that latest Clover breaks some stuff and the hack becomes unbootable (moves the drivers to a new folder). I'm currently backing my system up, what should I know...

    Hey @CaseySJ, do you recommend using the platform ID 0x3E980003 even if I'm rocking a 9700K? Everything seems to be working fine with the original untouched 0x3E910003. I didn't even set this, it just automatically applied it.

    Hey Casey, Enjoying catching up on this thread and reading about new discoveries. Just had two questions: 1) I unlocked the 0xE2 MSR register on my motherboard. Would it be okay to uncheck "PluginType" in Clover Configurator? What does PluginType do in our case? 2) Should we keep the...

    Got it working, and successfully modified the CFG Lock. Was able to remove those 2 KernelPM patches after that in CC and everything is booting fine :).

    @3Dman Do you have any tips on how to get that modified GRUB shell running? I've been trying and it won't boot from BIOS no matter what I do (put the EFI into boot folder, format USB drive to FAT32, EXFAT, etc). Any help is much appreciated!

    Which platform ID are you using? My Devices tab in CC >> Properties is blank, and everything seems to be working great.

    SMBios 19.x - iMacs 2019

    @DexterOX Do you happen to know if the real 2019 imacs display the graphics in About This Mac as "Radeon RX580" or "AMD Radeon RX580"?

    @zoomlenz @CaseySJ @luckyal Just catching up on a couple days worth of posts/following along. If we're successfully able to unlock MSR 0xE2 on the Gigabyte Z390 Designare, what would be the immediate benefit? If I understand correctly, we could then enable VT-d and remove dart=0? Which kexts...
