One more question, also about HD Intel graphics.
Occasionally, the screen blacks out for about 1-2 seconds and then image returns as if nothing happened. Is this the "flickering" you were referring to earlier?
Yes as I mentioned above it seemed that updating WhateverGreen fixed the issue. I also see in WhateverGreen commit log a note about KPs starting with 10.14.4, so that is probably what I was experiencing.
I recently got rid of my GPU and started using the Intel HD Graphics for this board.
Since then I am experiencing random reboots, so it clearly has to do something with the Graphics. Have you had this? Any idea what it can be?
I am in BIOS 4.0 and when I got the board it was on 1.2.
It worked on the first attempt, and has worked ever since.
Which card exactly do you have? Maybe it is defective or something doesn't make good contact
No, but honestly I didn't even try as I didn't need it on Mac.
What I did notice (under Windows), is that that port is connected to an altogether different XHCI controller.
The main XHCI controller is VEN_8086&DEV_A36D (Cannon Lake PCH USB 3.1 xHCI Host Controller)
And that USB-C port is on...
As I had a front USB port problem also, I checked again the front ports.
This time I got to a different result:
Front Panel left - HS10,SS07 (I said SS10 here before instead of SS07)
Front Panel right - HS11,SS08 (same like before)
I am not sure how come I got to a different result...
Just to clarify, I was not saying that AptioMemoryFix is necessarily better than OsxAptioFix2 for this board (It's difficulty to say which is preferred, as none is working properly, it's a matter of personal preference here) - I was just saying that in any case EmuVariable should...
Well, newer is not always better, but in cases when native nvram access under macos does not work (and, I checked, it doesn't work for this board, no matter which version of *AptioFix* you are using), it should not be used without EmuVariable.
When OSX shuts down/reboots, it tries to write some...
Looking again at the list of your drivers, the reason you were not having panics must be because you are using the very old OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi (instead of the newer AptioMemoryFix-64.efi). Perhaps that version doesn't have the latest patches for making native nvram work, and that is...
The panics I was referring to are seen only right before reboot/shutdown.
But just to be sure you don't have them, you mean you can actually shutdown the system from OSX, and the PC turns off (not reboots) without EmuVariable?
I am asking about shutdown because the panic causes a reboot, so it...
EmuVariable is required for this (and most other Z390 boards), as the BIOSes for these boards (which are based on a newer version of AMI Aptio) are not (yet) compatible with Aptio*MemoryFix in regards to nvram writing - so native nvram does not work under OSX.
When OSX reboots or shuts down the...
