We are having the same problem. My hang is at A2 also. i have the sata controller disabled but it still hangs at A2. Sent all the information to Gigabyte and they issued a RMA. The problem is I will not have a computer for who knows how long.
Ah - that sounds less encouraging!

Good job flashing the controller!!

Have you created a custom DROM using HackinDROM or using the manual method described in the Thunderbolt DROM mini-guide for this board?

The VRS8 is connecting to Thunderbolt Bus, but maybe the drivers are not working or seeing the device. Anyway, we should first use a properly configured Thunderbolt SSDT by following the Thunderbolt DROM mini-guide for this board.
Yes, I think I created the custom drom, but I was not sure what I was doing following the steps, is there any way to check it?

Hi,

Getting an error when trying to install Catalina. Think it goes wrong in step 2 already when I'm trying this step:

  • Open a Terminal window and type:
  • sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/Catalina-USB
I'm getting this:

/Applications/Install macOS Catalina.app does not appear to be a valid OS installer application.


I'm using this version:


1. macOS Catalina 10.15.7 (19H2)


- 001-51042 - Added 2020-09-24 17:09:31 - 8.75 GB


Anyone knows where this goes wrong?

Thanks,

Daan

Please post your Thunderbolt SSDT and I'll take a look.

This is most likely due to an incomplete download. If you used GibMacOS then please do this:
  • Open the GibMacOS-master folder and look for a sub-folder called macOS Downloads.
  • Delete the entire macOS Downloads folder.
  • Run gibMacOS.command again and re-download Catalina.
  • When it's downloaded, quit and run BuildmacOSInstallApp.command again.
  • Copy the new Install macOS Catalina from the gibMacOS-master/macOS Downloads/publicrelease folder to /Applications folder.
  • Now try it again.

We can save this file to /Users/Shared/liquidctl-startup.sh and enable file execute permissions by typing this in Terminal:
A new day and a clear head to attempt to make this work. The above appears to be my stumbling block. Liquidctl-startup.sh is not in /Users/Shared folder. I have tried this multiple times without success.
Step 4 is not a problem. Start Liquidctl is in Login Items.

Ok, I attach it here, thank you.
Hello!
Just checked your SSDT and noticed that you put your Thunderbolt Bus ID to .... 7! Do you have 6 other Thunderbolt Controllers in your machine ? :mrgreen:

@Inqnuam -- Good catch!
@Fabrizzioa04 -- Please use HackinDROM again, but this time set Bus ID to 0. Feel free to post the new SSDT for us to check. This by itself may or may not solve the original problem, but let's start by using Bus ID 0.
