Sad to say it didn't work for me on the Gigabyte Z370 AORUS Ultra Gaming - rev. 1.0. Good job I made a backup of the bios before I started as I had to revert to the old version.

Give me your original DSDT.aml
At the clover boot menu hit F4 to dump the original DSDT.aml, after boot look into clover/ACPI/ original, this has to be done with the new bios.

I’ll do that this evening, thanks.

@mattystonnie As promised, please find attached the DSDT.aml file(s)
If it helps in any way, I've attached 2 files, DSDT-F12.aml and DSDT-F14.aml where the F12 & F14 represent the bios version. F12 works fine but the system just hangs with F14 with the apple logo and it proceeds to about 3 to 4 % on the progress bar.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

The patch is legit, it does apply to you dsdt, I found the hexadecimals there.

Try again :
Patch 1 : find : A00A9353 54415301 replace : A00A910A FF0BFFFF
Patch 2 : find : A00A9353 54415301 replace : A00A9353 43535301

Edit : 3rd option try both at the same time.

I've put the patch into a file that you can merge into you config.plist using plistbuddy. After unzipping the file the command in Terminal would look something like this:

Bash:
/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Merge ACPI_Patch :ACPI:DSDT:" /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist

Patch 1 doesn't work for me
Patch 2 I'll try tomorrow, and if that doesn't work then I'll try the two together, and report back.

Try to disable CSM and boot in UEFI mode.
