@hellowe I have read other people do it, but I personally wouldn't do it. If I was in your place, I would clean install on a separate SSD and test any functionality I need, then move all my data over once I am satisfied. It's the longer route but since we have hackintoshes, I'd rather be safe than sorry and lose all my data. I have a real Mac mini and that one is not even behaving properly after I upgraded to Monterey lol...
@xsiborg definitely agree your suggestion, and I think I will take your approach to test it firstly.:headbang:

Hi all

I got my X99 Asus deluxe II with a 6950x 64gb RAM, RX Vega 64 LC, NVMe boot drive all working with full DSDT and SSDT implementation. Everything works including thunderbolt hot swap SSDT workaround that was used by KGP on previous built. With this EFI a lot of the KGP X99 SSDTs can be used. Like the Vega 64 and the thunderbolt PCIe card for example.

My motherboard has a modified bios the register and nvram unlocked.

One thing though is that I cannot update to 11.6. It goes through the whole install and then once it boots back up into the OS i get the "some updates could not be installed" notification and I'm stuck at 11.2.3

I've got my USB ports mapped with a Kext and USBlimit set to false in the config file... Any idea how I could get the update working?

Managed to fix the issues. USB mapping was the problem. Re did my usb map and then could update to 11.6.1 no problem
