hi @MiGri

Here your are!

I have compiled a custom SSDT to get rid of the 15 port limit patch. I figured out 18 ports to be active on the motherboard, but I'm not really sure about HS07 and HS08. But I haven't had any glitches so far ignoring them. For those, who want to tackle a custom SSDT I'll provide the list of all the ports for compiling a SSDT themself. I ended up including 12 active ports for me, which fit easily into the 15 port limit. The two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports on the back plate are not affected by the SSDT, by the way. They work and seem to count besides the XHC controller.

This is what I figured out for all the possible 26 ports:

HS01: USB2 on port #1 from 1st USB3 motherboard header, port, <01 00 00 00>
HS02: USB2 on port #2 from 1st USB3 motherboard header, port, <02 00 00 00>
HS03: USB2 on port #1 from 2nd USB3 motherboard header, port <03 00 00 00>
HS04: USB2 on port #2 from 2nd USB3 motherboard header, port <04 00 00 00>
HS05: USB2 on USB3 back plate right, port <05 00 00 00>
HS06: USB2 on USB3 back plate left, port <06 00 00 00>
HS07: (unused)
HS08: (unused)
HS09: USB2 on port #1 from 1st USB2 motherboard header (for AIO Pump), port <09 00 00 00>
HS10: USB2 on port #2 from 1st USB2 motherboard header, port <0a 00 00 00>
HS11: USB2 on port #1 from 2nd USB2 motherboard header, port <0b 00 00 00>
HS12: USB2 on port #2 from 2nd USB2 motherboard header, port <0c 00 00 00>
HS13: USB2 on USB2 back plate right (for Apple Keyboard), port <0d 00 00 00>
HS14: USB2 on USB2 back plate left (for USB Mouse), port <0e 00 00 00>

SS01: USB3 on port #1 from 1st USB3 motherboard header, port, <11 00 00 00>
SS02: USB3 on port #2 from 1st USB3 motherboard header, port, <12 00 00 00>
SS03: USB3 on port #1 from 2nd USB3 motherboard header, port, <13 00 00 00>
SS04: USB3 on port #2 from 2nd USB3 motherboard header, port <14 00 00 00>
SS05: USB3 on USB3 back plate right, port <15 00 00 00>
SS06: USB3 on USB3 back plate left, port <16 00 00 00>
SS07: unused
SS08: unused
SS09: unused
SS10: unused

USR1: unused
USR2: unused

No idea what's the issue with your boot, but let me tell you how I did it:

1. I used USB stick created according to https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.235474/
2. I've added few kexts (EFI attached) - it booted without an issue
3. Did normal install
4. After that I upgraded to 10.13.1 and installed latest nVidia drivers
5. I had issues with sound but installation of FakePCIID.ext and FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext helped.

Overall everything what I need works, but not everything is yet tested.

@cmy, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard (Mobo), CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card.
