I use this internal USB 2 splitter that works perfectly. It provides four USB 2 connections through a hub built into the little printed circuit board (PCB).

Changed the order to the one you suggested.

does or doesn't add ports? Will the PCIe USB card add ports?
No. It doesn't add ports. It will not add to the total port count that macOS sees.

It's a hub. It splits ports so multiple devices can use a single port.

I had left the SSDT’s in patched so the install was smooth. I have not tried to sleep the system yet.

Update, wake from sleep, no problems The USB 3.1c hard drive dock that disconnected when attached to the USB 3.1c is staying connected now that it is attached to Titan Ridge. Next stop OWC Thunderbay 4 RAID 5!

Good Afternoon All,

@CaseySJ, I didn't want to slam your thread with this so, here I go. I have Thunderbolt option in my bios now, I also have it showing up in my Windows. Here is where I am running into problems on the Mac side.

  1. I have installed the two aml files in EFI-Clover-APCI-Patched. (Please see attachment 1)
  2. In the System Report under PCI, I don't see GC-Titan Ridge, but I do see pcic0a9,2263. (Please see attachment 2)
  3. After reading this thread a few times, and looking at @MACAK 's IOReg file and looking at the post below, I looked at my IOReg, and saw my Nvme in the RP21@18,4 hive. (Please see attachment 3)

First, I read somewhere that if I have an NVMe in the lowest slot, it shares system resources with the lowest PCIe slot. I removed it and now have internet in both TB ports, in Windows. The AIC now appears in BIOS.

No to device manager although I am thoroughly ignorant about Windows so it could be there and I would not know it.

HWINFO64?
Restarted into Mojave. I have Internet through the TB>Ethernet dongle. I have a USBc flash drive that appears in Windows but not in Mojave through the AIC. The AIC is not showing in System Info in Mojave.
