Hello Nathan,

I read that you're using High Sierra. My Hackintosh is still on Sierra. I didn't find the time to upgrade...

On Sierra, it was working after OS installation. I just used MultiBeast > Drivers > USB > Increase Max Port Limit 100 Series to increase the number of USB ports.

On High Sierra, it's probably another driver for USB ports. Did you see another possibility in the new multibeast version?
I invite to search topics for new MSI motherboards, like the new 'MSI Z270I GAMING PRO CARBON AC'. Their drivers could maybe work on old motherboard version.

@m8kbv >> did you succeed in your High Sierra upgrade? Do you have an idea to help @NathanTu

Hello Tammm2,

Really happy to see your respond.
Yes, I'm aware of the "Increase Max Port Limit 100 Series" drivers, but it didn't appear in the multibeast when I install it, what I got is the "Increase Max Port Limit 200 Series", so I skipped this, could this be the issue?

Also, I am not using any graphics right now, just the plain onboard CPU via HDMI.

@yuanjie1853, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard, CPU and Graphics Card.
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard (Mobo).
