Glad you were able to find the solution (refresh rate issue) and thanks for providing the patch for Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Pro!Hi I'm having Gigabyte z390 Pro wifi and i7 9700k with UHD 630. This mobo only have one HDMI port of v1.4.
I exactly followed the steps mentioned, and I have identified that my HDMI is mapped to Port 7 ( Index 3). The bus id in this display is by default 0x04. With this configuration my HDMI monitor goes to black but when I try to connect through screen sharing with my macbook pro it shows correct acceleration value and display shows exact screen size and resolution of my monitor, but the monitor is not showing anything just black. Please check the attached screenshot taken through screen sharing session.
I also tried setting different bus id from 0x01 to 0x06. none of them is working. When I set other than 0x04 the display is not detected and the iGPU info is not shown on About mac screen and the screen also not in normal resolution of the monitor, it was like general mac mini display resolution.

Hello @DanTechMedia,Hello everyone,
First off, thank you very much to @CaseySJ for this post. It is truly great to see such a well detailed guide.
At this time I've managed to get to the point were I can boot up into MacOS Mojave, however the screen goes blank after it loads in. I have tried to use Hackintool v2.8.0 and I've tried to change the type from DP to HDMI. I've Tried all the Bus IDs (0x04, 0x05, 0x06). I keep running into the black screen. Any help would be REALLY appreciated because at this point I'm just chasing my tail for the last 2 weeks. I've also tried different Platform IDs but no luck. With all that said, while there is so much great info out there, I think I may be overthinking somethings. If anyone can help, I'd be extremely greatful. Thank you in advance to everyone.
My system Specs
CPU - Intel i9 9900K
LIQUID COOLER - Corsair H150i PRO
MOBO - GIGABYTE Z390 DESIGNARE
RAM - Corsair Vengence 32GB (3200MHz)
PSU - EVGA SUPERNOVA 1000 T2
SSD - Crucial 1TB MX500 3D NAND SSD
GPU - EVGA FT3 RTX 2080Ti
(This card is in the top slot of my PCIe slots on my MOBO, its only for Win10 - I would like to disable it when everything else works. I only want to use the iGPU on the i9 9900K for macOS - I am even looking into purchasing a RX580 if needed, if so Can I use macOS with both GPUs while only using the RX580 for macOS Mojave??).
I've attached my config.plist & ScreenShots of certain settings specific to my hardware. Please let me know if more info is needed and where to find it? Thank you for your time.
Thank you very very much @CaseySJ!!!Hello @DanTechMedia,
The Framebuffer connector patches for Designare Z390 are listed at the end of Post #1. I've inserted them into your config.plist (attached). Please copy serial numbers back into SMBIOS before use.
To hide the RTX 2080Ti from macOS, simply copy the attached SSDT to the CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder in the EFI partition of the Mojave SSD and reboot.
I am still fairly new to Hackintosh and I was unsure how to apply some patches. I tried using Hackintool and didn't get very far. I unfortunately haven't ever applied a patch manually using TextWrangler or BBEdit. I am still looking into the manual method as I'm sure that it will come in handy very soon if not later on.Hi @DanTechMedia,
Have you tried the properties patch from @CaseySJ? Your mobo is same as his so it should work fine.
Which monitor you are using and what is the refresh rate and resolution. Check my post above for more info.
I also had the same issue I have configured everything as mentioned in the post but still I got black screen with my AOPEN monitor which have 144hz referesh rate, when I change the refresh rate to 60hz through screensharing I got it working.
