Does not matter the guide OP has both clover and open core EFI. Use this USB kext with the EFI from the golden build.
Quick question. I replaced the kext for the USB with yours but, is the USC-C connector in the back of the motherboard mapped? Because looks like it doesn't work right now.

The USB-C on the back is on a different controller and is not part of the 15 port limitation imposed by MacOS. Thus it is not included in the kext for USB. It is my wife's computer and so I can not attest to it working or not working or its stability. I can tell you I use the one on my z370 gigabyte board works great and at the correct speeds.

Any tips on what should I do to make it work?

It should just work, the Asmedia controller has drivers in mac OS. You could ask in the Golden Build thread I posted on the previous page and maybe @pastrychef could tell you if they did anything to make it work. However, I have a feeling they are going to provide you the same answer I did... That it should just work.

Ok thanks. Maybe it was just something that I did. Have a goodnight!

Yeah, on Z370, the ASMedia USB 3.1 gen 2 ports don't need any configuring.

Guys, I don't know how. The PC didn't reboot for 3 times during the installation process but I persisted and manually rebooted the unit. Well, everything looks in order. I ran Geekbench and scored the same as my high sierra release. I'll begin some stress test in the next days so I can switch to this OS in about a months for my recording studio.

Thanks, if anyone need my EFI just ask.

Last question, I notice that pastrychef's release don't have a serial etc. Should I put one?

There you go. This is may EFI from February. I don't know the open core versione. It should be 0.6.5 or 0.6.6. you have to type you serial, uuid etc.
I hope this helps
