To answer your question, yes I would love to own the SAGE 10G, but cant afford right now $650 (ouch!). Also it seems you can only have the Titan Ridge TB in the 2nd slot of the sage, meaning the first GPU card has to be a 1 slot card or on riser. Also I still don't know if anyone is running multiple gpus in the sage, I have been trying to find all the posts on the sage to read up.Dude... you now do not have any TSCAdjustReset.kext in your EFI-Folder. Once a properly adapted TSCAdjustReset.kext is back in your EFI-Folder, your Designare EX system should boot now with your current EFI-Folder configuration.
Anyway, at first place try to boot with one Nvidia GPU only.
Revise your BIOS settings in case the boot problem still remains. Also try to enable/disable "above 4G decoding".
I do not have any save of SSDTs I might have created for the Designare EX once. You can only investigate both X299 threads, if I attached such SSDTs once.
There are also no XHC USB kexts for the Designare EX yet available in the respective Github library, as no Designare EX user was providing or willing in helping to provide the latter.
Last but not least, TB HotPlug will also not work with the onboard Alpine Ridge controller of the Designare EX, thus I really don't know what for all these efforts..
You do not want to directly switch to the ASUS WS X299 Sage 10G + GC-Titan Ridge controller?
Oops I forgot to add the TSCAdjustReset.kext again....I just did after you mentioned that, still no boot I only have one GPU installed and nothing else. Also the enable/disable "above 4G decoding" is not an option on the Gigabyte unfortunately. Not as concerned with the hotswap as much as just getting this thing to boot! I even flashed the BIOS. I am lost for options.
