Ok forget it I just solved the problem myself.

Apparently the BIOS Thunderbolt Security Level was set to SL0-No Security as expected but the card was acting as if SL1-User Authorization was selected. So I changed it once and back to SL0 and now the card is working correctly with HotPlug!

My Only remaining issue is that if I mount a drive on macOS, when I reboot the system stucks at ASUS Splash screen logo and I need to disconnect the drive to pass through. I still think the system is scanning for boot entries but I don't know why and why it takes so long. I disabled the Thunderbolt Boot Support option of course.

The latter only happened in my case and the X299 Deluxe after any unsuccessful system wake with TB devices connected during sleep.

Hi,

i was wondering if it is safe to turn on FileVault on the boot drive?
The respective drivers are installed via Clover Configurator.

Can anyone please help me get my Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti graphics card working with acceleration and cuda cores?

My Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti graphics card is working but it's not accelerated. I do not understand the instruction on the first page of this thread. I have tried to follow different videos on YouTube that explain how to install the Nvidia drivers on a Hackintosh but one of the tutorials says to remove the graphics card before installing the web drivers. I cannot do this because the 1080 Ti is my only graphics card.

Other instructions that I have found explain how to install the Nvidia driver using the Clover Configurator...but they are showing an older version that does not match the Clover Configurator that I have. Since this is my first Hackintosh I do not have enough familiarity with using the older Clover Configurator to translate these instruction to the new version.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

@ jgaltone: you're aware that Mojave does not have any nVidia drivers available for the 1080Ti?
High Sierra is the latest macOS version with proper drivers (available for download) for that card.
