Im starting a Build Thread for my system and I will update with more information as I can put it together.

Im assuming you've already created a macOS USB using the proper avenue (meaning from a Mac using the Mac app store).

The files I am going to attach are the completed build hot patched and including the addition of thunderbolt.

Resources: (Some of the SSDTs in my build have been renamed with Z170D in the DefinitionBlock to match my build but came from a number of different community members own time and effort or inspired my own creations)

yea a good portion of your work is what made mine possible thank you! I was going to credit your work as soon as I created the official write up. Thank you for your time and excellent work.

Don't think you need to flash the Thunderbolt EX3 add-on card for hot-plug to work on the z170-Deluxe.

I know I did it for the target display and thunderbolt bridge functionality. I behaves like proper tb3 in a Mac this way and actually will work in any Hackintosh regardless of whether the header is present

I'm using gigabyte alpine ridge 2.0 I gotta correct ssdt though as speed is only 20gb I did have it at 40gb with a diff one based on the titan ridge card had to flash eprom on tb card though for native macOS tb functionality otherwise I needed to use tb3forcepower.efi and a kext also
