Thanks for the reply. Adding TB3 via a PCI card is not an issue, if the hot plug problem was never to be solved. Apart from this, has the Z590 proven as stable (when used with Comet Lake) in a hack as the Z490 was considered?I think a viable option is Gigabyte Z590 Vision D with Comet Lake CPU. There is already a pre-built OpenCore EFI folder for this in the HackinDROM App. @CODYQX4 and @dehjomz are both using this board.
However, the on-board Thunderbolt 4 (Maple Ridge) controller is giving us some problems with hot-plug. If you connect and power up Thunderbolt devices before booting macOS, then you should be okay. There may be a workaround for hot-plug -- namely:
- Hot plug a device while macOS is running
- Put the system to sleep
- Wake up the system
- Now the device should be connected
Thanks! I'll look into the Vision G.@tango76,
I also struggled to get hold of a Gigabyte Z490 Vision D Motherboard relatively recently.
Eventually I went with Gigabyte Z490 Vision G ... which is fully supported by the guide in post #1.
With a bit of searching you may find somewhere that has them still in stock.
It’s a great motherboard, and, if you need TB3, you can go the add in PCIe card route which is far easer to flash than the on board TB3.
Check here, they have stock.
Thanks. It looks like they will only deliver to Australia though? I am in the US.
