Hi all, maybe you can help...
I'd like to build a dual boot PC/hack using a Ryzen 5 5600X and a B550 ITX board. Can you advice of a good working B550 ITX board?
Thanks all for your help.

Also note that in Monterey Ethernet is not working for me.

As a workaround for Ethernet not being active with the Monterey beta, I found that an old CableCreation USB-C hub I had on the shelf plugged into a Thunderbolt port provided Ethernet.

Not an elegant solution! :)

Hello @zzmadd,

Installing macOS on an AMD Ryzen system is not too difficult, but it is a little more complicated than an Intel system. Are you aware of the following?
  • AMD-OSX kernel patches for AMD Ryzen systems? And how to install them into your config.plist?
  • AMDRyzenCPUPowerManagement kext (GitHub --> trulyspinach)?
  • Only use VirtualSMC.kext, but not the other kexts supplied with VirtualSMC
  • Mapping USB ports when there are 3 USB controllers?
    • In some cases it may not be necessary to map USB ports, but this will vary from system to system.
    • At first you can try enabling XhciPortLimit kernel quirk and not using any USB port map.
    • Check if sleep/wake works. If it does not work, then USB port map will most likely be necessary.

hi @CaseySJ ! I'm still trying to buy the b550 Vision D but for now I'm with an Asrock x570m pro4 and I like it so much but unfortunately I need more PCI port so I will change it for sure, also for the TB Built-in. I'm writing you because I intend to flash the modded firmware from your repo on my GC-alpine ridge rev2.0.. Can you suggest me a controller CH34A1 from the Amazon.it market? Or if you know one in particular?

p.s. Can I send my EFI with DSDT and everything to check why with this configuration I have hotplug and everything working except for the shutdown. DTPG makes hotplug working but breaks the shutdown function, I have to force it with the powerbutton. (this without flashing the modded firmware on my GC-ALPINE2.0)
here the efi in case you want to take a look

ASRock's AMD AM4 motherboards have absolutely terrible BIOS implementation! They should be avoided. I struggled for a long time to fix all kinds of little problems on these boards... ;)

Regarding CH341a programmers, please search Amazon for "ch341a 3.3v". Then simply post links to two or three candidates and I can check them out for you.
