Update
Now 3 of the 4 i9-10900X I've tested on Asrock X299 Creator have a slow boot
One of the 3 slow booting processor boots normally on Gigabyte X299 UD4 Pro ...with the same version of OpenCore (0.6.0)
Is it a BIOS trouble from a Asrock ?

Yes, maybe a bios problem, then carefully flashing a new bios file and setting up your system should confirm it.

HS question : can I add X299 Creator on the X299 Support thread and can you share your EFI OC folder (without serial, etc...) ?

oli.mathieu, man, you are a life savior!!! I've been trying to boot my machine for days. But with your EFI it "flew" into Catalina like a charm. Any advice on getting Thunderbolt 3 ports working? Since it's my first hack I could really use some help.

Not really, I haven't got any thunderbolt device to test it
You are sure it's not working ?
Glad it's working with your hardware (we have almost the same ;) )

As it turns out, it does.
Being used to regular Mac's, first thing I did I went to System Report to check Thunderbolt tab. And since I found nothing there I assumed TB was not functional.

But then I installed drivers for my Universal Audio TB3 sound card and now it is up and running. Surprisingly.
And STILL nothing is shown in the Thunderbolt tab in System report. Strange though.

(we have almost the same ;) )

Yeah, what are the chances :)
