    ASUS DRW-24D5MT - periodically seeking

    Recently upgraded to Mojave after running Sierra and High Sierra on the same hardware. Everything is working pretty much as it should, except my Asus DRW-24D5MT optical drive periodically seeks. No media in the drive. Any tips on either what logs to look at to see why it is, or stopping it?!

    [SUCCESS] ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero - i7-7700K - 32GB RAM - Intel HD630 > EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 > AMD Sapphire RX580 Pulse

    A successful weekend and day today. I've added an update to the first post, but essentially, installed the RX580, fixed audio front-panel and general issues, fixed hardware GPU acceleration (forgot to remove a fake ID - doh!), and got my startup chime back! Only thing I haven't tested so far is...

    Thanks both for your replies - I knew I could count on you! I think I'll go to Mojave (ensuring I have the apfs.kext in place as I'm still on HFS+). Seems to be the least painful route, and I think upgrading in-situ will be the first thing I try. I'll have two complete clones before I start...

    I didn't think I'd ever upgrade this again, but with the prospect of me buying Apple hardware once again once the transition to ARM-based silicon is complete, and the EOL of High Sierra with the release of Big Sur, an Intel-free future for Apple has meant I want to eek a couple of more years...

    Thanks! Great tips. I'll definitely look into it some more.

    Great, thanks! Definitely the way I'll go. Just need to find the time to do a completely clean install of Mojave. Also need to decide on Clover vs OpenCore!

    Gotcha, thanks! Sorry, I misread your post as saying the 580s. Looks like the route I'll take.

    Thanks for the replies. I was also looking at the Sapphire RX580 PULSE as well. Interesting that @Gigamaxx says to avoid that though when so many others seem to recommend it? RX5600XT is beyond what I want to spend, and I only really want to go to Mojave at this point, too.

    Without wanting to hijack this thread, I'm on a similar trajectory. Currently on High Sierra with a GTX 1070, but it won't be long before Adobe require an OS update. The thing is, I think I'm probably going to go back to Apple hardware in the not too distant future so don't want to spend a ton...

    My system is definitely not as stable or functional after upgrading to High Sierra. I'm almost considering a from-scratch installation at some point. I don't want to spend any more money on it so not going to change GPU and thus remain on High Sierra.

    Just discovered that even though sound out of the line out socket at the rear of the case is working, my front panel headphones and mic sockets no longer work. Not entirely sure how to fix this one!

    [SUCCESS] ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero - i7-7700K - 32GB RAM - Intel HD630 > EVGA GTX 1070 SC2 > AMD Sapphire RX580 Pulse

    The switch was prompted by a discussion about it here, and mainly because the 18,3 definition contained support for the Kaby Lake processor family, which we're using. It's just more aligned with the hardware this system is pretending to be! Ad for noticeable advantages, it's difficult to say. I...

    Added an update to explain why I took this build back to HFS+.

    Apple Chime at Startup Added to Clover

    Using the Goldfish64 package, it works, but is at ear-splitting volume, and changing the volume setting in the Clover Bootloader options has no effect. Is this related to NVRAM, I wonder.

    Finally forced by Adobe to upgrade to High Sierra (yes, I know, I'm on the bleeding edge!). Updates added to guide. The startup chime being the only problem I'm left with after the upgrade seems like good value to me.

    DIY Startup Sound - a clean way to do....

    After upgrading to High Sierra, the chime doesn't occur until I get to the desktop, then cuts out before it finishes. Prior to this, it played just before the OS X login screen appeared. Any idea how I get it to play earlier again?

    @wellingtonborges - This build is based on an IX board. You're better off trying in the High Sierra Desktop Support forum to begin with. Make sure you add full details of your system to your profile so that people can help you: https://www.tonymacx86.com/forums/high-sierra-desktop-support.190/

    No, I think I might have confused the issue. With the previous update (2018-001) I ran into the same issue, and at that point, that updater tool didn't work for me, and I had to wait until new drivers were released. I'm just saying that it's perhaps not necessarily going to work for all...

    I'm still on Sierra, yes. I just had to wait until the new drivers were released (I'm talking previous to this SecUpd), and I'm on 378.05.05.25f10.

    Glad you got that working, Bob. I tried to do exactly that when I accidentally updated to the last security update in Sierra. It didn't work for me. Not saying it won't, but just a warning that there are possibly other things at play that might make it not work on all Hacks.
