Resorting to trickery to get your system going is just sad. Unfortunately nothing we can do till GB doesn't sort their problems, meanwhile OC is your best chance of not wanting to bin your build every time fails at boot.

Just my honest opinion.

My OC EFI is a basis for anyone who wants to use to have somewhere to start, obviously it will not work for everyone given the difference in some hardware. BIOS configuration has the upper hand with this mobo, I would trace to the basics of BIOS config prior to going mad with EFI changes.

If you had one that was working, just try to complete that one, any info given or files by anyone may just work as a "things to consider and try" but ultimately it will be your config that will work for you.

Post your BIOS config by pics if you can, I know its tedious but there might be something wrong with it, and since we know these boards are very sensitive to firmware config then it would be no strange that its not working right..

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!
