Thanks I'll give that a go. I don't need and BT or WiFi at the moment. If you happen to have the EFI folder you used I would love to take a look and compare my SSDTs etc.

Thanks

Hi Aarongorga

I just bought the same motherboard and cpu 10900x
And I have big problem with clover and boot failure,

In addition to this problem
I think my cpu and this motherboard are very slow and windows boot time is long,

my old motherboard and cpu (Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 … cpu i7 6700k)
boot windows 10 in 5 second

This motherboard and cpu (X299X Aorus Master … cpu i9 10900x)
Boot windows 10 in 30 second

What is your idea?
You have any problem for speed?

Regards

Hi Farid

I'm not a good person to ask about this. I have been a Mac guy for my entire life, the last Windows computer I had was a Mac on bootcamp and Windows 7, I have no reference as far as booting Windows speed.

I did notice when following the guide that we should disable fastboot in the BIOS, which was disabled by default in my case, perhaps it was enabled on your old system? I didn't time the boot up, but it seems OK. I'm used to my Mac that hasn't been turned off in 6 months, so everything is slow to me LOL.

I have everything working including Hot plugging thunderbolt. Only thing not working is ethernet.
Geekbench score no overclock. I removed the internal wifi+BT card and used a fenvi BCM94360CD Wi-Fi 1750Mbps Bluetooth 4.0 Pci-e Card

Everything woking except sleep and boot failures (but that's not a big deal) just enter bios and boot your mac drive. App attached to work like native brightness and volume on your keyboards (non mac also). Another good app to create a real working Recovery HD (Command+R) just shows up as a boot option in your bootloader.

Gigabyte bios so tricky any change= bootfailure

well with the x299x boards plus clover = boot failure everytime. That’s the only way I can get to the boot loader, to even load OS X. Sleep needs to be fixed so updating can be native.
