Some immediate questions:
  • Which Pegasus RAID are you using?
  • Is it a Thunderbolt 3 model?
  • Which Thunderbolt or USB port is it connected to?
Regarding the ADATA USB 3.1 hard drive:
  • What is the make/model?
  • Which USB port is it connected to?

The adata is a AHDD330

The RAID is a Promise Pegasus 3 R6

The thing is that I also noticed that whenever the render starts, it says for instance 20 minutes, but after like 5 minutes it starts to get slow, very very slow, and the computer is unusable, everything gets reall slow, the Finder, Chrome, very slow

I have uploaded new versions of the GPU disabling SSDTs to Post 1 of the Designare Z390 thread. Attaching them here as well. Please try the new SSDT-Designare-Z390-Disable-Slot-2-GPU.aml.
@CaseySJ It does not work. Same issue that I had when I first used the SSDT from the Z390 page. macOS starts loading then around 50% on the progressing bar it resets. But, if I use the one that I upload for you on the previous page, it does not crash. What changes did you make between the one I uploaded and the one you asked me to try?

Also, not sure how this could be related, but, after it rebooted and I managed to disabled the SSDT via the OC editor, I lost Bluetooth completely. I could not reconnect to the mouse, keyboard or soundbar.
I tried several times to reboot; remove then repair the Bluetooth devices; nothing worked. Last solution, I shutdown the system, switched off the power supply for a couple of minutes. I restarted, and then Bluetooth worked again.

Hi everyone,

I am slowly, let's say, preparing myself mentally to possibly consider an update to Big Sur... :eek: I would just have a simple question to ask, even though I am pretty sure that the topic has been already probably clarified:

Considering OpenCore together with the Intel BT/WIFI drivers current state of the art, is it now possible to have Intel Bluetooth and WIFI working decently on Big Sur (i.e. the same way as on Catalina) with @CaseySJ OpenCore configuration files?

Thanks for your help! (and sorry for the repetition if there is...)

We will need to see:
  • Make/model of the expansion board
  • IOReg file
  • System DSDT
PCIe2-427
It must be something like this?:

Yes, that's the approach we need to take. Have you already tried it? If not, please post the IOReg file from IORegistryExplorer (File --> Save As...).

...
Based on my definition of "working decently" the answer is easily "no". But others may find the drivers to be good enough for their purposes. I would encourage you to try the drivers for yourself to see if they're adequate for your needs.

It would appear that this technique of setting class-code to 0xFFFF no longer works in latest versions of macOS. Alas it may be necessary to wait until Radeon 6000-series drivers become available.

Can you please answer the questions related to which USB/TB3 port each drive is connected to? Have you tried running Blackmagic Disk Speed Test on each of the two drives? The test should be run 3 times to see if performance slows down as the drives heat up.

Here it is attached. This is booted through OC and WEG renames the GPU original name (attached in the previous post, which is booted natively) to GFX.

Please try the attached SSDT. Some notes:
  • It's best to copy your working EFI folder to the EFI partition of a USB flash disk and add this SSDT to the USB flash disk. In case the boot process crashes, you can always boot from the normal EFI on the internal SSD.
  • To boot the system with the new EFI, press the appropriate function key at the BIOS Splash Screen to open your BIOS Boot Menu, then select the USB flash disk.
  • Also note that this method of disabling a GPU may no longer work under latest versions of Catalina and Big Sur.
