I have an OWC Thunderbolt Dock connected to the SSP1/HSO8 Type C port on the Designare.
All is working great - I was checking through my System Information and I was surprised to see the OWC Dock show up in System Information --> USB as a USB Hub on the USB 3.1 Bus?
I am guessing this is...
Thanks for the info.
If I were to go with a new build with the 12900ks, I would use Gigabyte Z690 Aero G on an older BIOS and use the Titan Ridge card. Seems like the easiest path.
That said, both of those latter products may be hard to source in Europe.
I am thinknig of doing this build, and I was curious if there was another Motherboard that has an on-board Thunderbolt controller? That could be used with the EFIs here.
Or is it better to stick with the add-on card option?
Casey has 2 excellent golden builds.
However, the Gigabyte Z690 Aero G board needs an add-on Thunderbolt card - and the Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi board is expensive and requires pricey DDR5 RAM.
Is there a reasonably priced board that would be good for the i9 12900KS processor with onboard...
I have recently replaced a faulty power supply, and I am back up and running. Before I replaced the power supply BIOS was not accessible, so I did a CMOS reset when troubleshooting.
However, a fan, I assume the GPU is going full guns and is loud from start-up and never lets up even after...
Hey guys, having an issue with my Hack.
Suddenly lost USB peripherals when using so had to hold the power button to shut down, now the unit will not power up at all. This has happened before with no issue restarting.
The Designare logo lights up, but no action at all when pressing the power...
Yes it is off the shelf. Don't get me wrong it is a strong processor for what I do, just considering upgrade options.
I know the i9 9900 range are the top-end according to the lists of compatible processors; just a wondering if someone had success with the processors?
I guess I could go for a...
Just for my curiosity. What is the fastest and most powerful chip we can use with the Designare Z390?
I am rocking the i9 9900 ks currently, and I am guessing that is the top end but I could use a little extra CPU power from time to time.
Yes I did use an OpenCore EFI folder from this thread. I have "SSDT-TB3-HackinDROM.aml" and "SSDT-Z390-"DESIGNARE-TB3HP-V4.aml" in the OpenCore folder, however when I go to the System Report Thunderbolt/USB 4 it says No Drivers Are Loaded
Hello all, and happy holidays!
After a long while of solid work on my Hackintosh, I am looking to jump in to getting Thunderbolt working.
I've read through the guides, however I am not clear on what steps I need to take from here. I have not made any attempts at this as yet.
Apple Music Lossless?
I have discovered, and also read there is an issue with playing Apple Music in Lossless mode. It just skips the tracks without playing.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Apparently switching to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS gets it working?
Is there any harm in using the older OpenCore 0.6.4 with the latest version of Big Sur 11.6
I just updated from Catalina to Big Sur with success (thanks again to Casey's superb guides), and I was on OC 0.6.4 prior to the upgrade. So thinking to keep as is as it is working well....
Got a functioning bootable back up of my Mojave install, now ready to format my NVMe drive to start a fresh Catalina install using OpenCore.
What is current scoop on the definitive and best way to generate a serial number and board serial number?
As I am starting from fresh, what SMBIOS? iMac...
I am thinking to generate new serial numbers, as I was wondering if this may be a reason that Logic is not working on my system.
If I am installing Catalina as a fresh install on to an NVMe drive that has an existing Mojave/Clover installation (after backing up the Mojave/Clover drive) rather...
In the OpenCore guides in this thread for Designare will this work for a completely fresh install of Catalina and Opencore? Without the need to port across anything from my Clover install? New serial numbers etc.
It may be naive of me, but as I don't know what is causing Logic Pro to not...
Yeh it has me baffled.
I have tried everything I can think of normally. Removed all plugins, cache, preferences - uninstall and reinstall, start without audio driver active.
I thought I had cracked it with the new Mojave install, but after a week or two Logic started crashing again. Just...
