I believe both have information for Hackintosh, but I would get the Deluxe ii
It has a better vrm and thunderbolt natively in the i/o shield. Follow the x299 KPG guide. Good luck!

Hey guys!

I just started to configure my Gigabyte X299X Designare 10G and flashed the Thunderbolt EEPROM with the file from the 1st post:
Now we can finally move to flashing the modified firmware, download, unzip and place the .bin somewhere comfortable for easy access.

Afterwards I open the SSDT-X299X-DESIGNARE10G-THUNDERBOLT-SIMPLIFIED edited the five values, recalculated the checksum and added the aml to my config.plist

Unfortunately, I get this error message while booting the system:
Code:
Thunderbolt 255 PCI - LS=0x7043 LC=0x0040 SS=0x0050 SC=0x0008 PMCSR=0x0000...
[PCI configuration end, bridge 19, device 125]
IOThunderboltSwitch<0>(0x0)::listenerCallback - Thunderbolt HPD packet for route = 0x0 port = 5 unplug = 0
IOThunderboltSwitch<0>(0x0)::listenerCallback - Thunderbolt HPD packet for route = 0x0 port = 6 unplug = 0
IOThunderboltEEPROM::getDROM - Error getting DROM from I/O Resistry (0xe00002be)

What did I miss?
Thanks!

Is this motherboard really that difficult to get mac OS running and can you give a short guide on how you approached the hack....thanks....and hope you get thunderbolt working as I'm interested in building this for my Universal Audio thunderbolt interfaces.

Which model exactly is confirmed today

EDIT: forget, apparently 10980XE is not compatible with Z490 chipset ...
