That's really good news, especially considering that wall i just hit (see below).As soon the TB-SSDT has been properly adapted/implemented once, you can just switch between different TB devices, as long they populate the same PCIe slot after each physical hardware replacement..
I got all the issues resolved from my previous post, except TB which is proving to be a headache. For some reason it just decided to work in Windows, but the Audio device that i connect through it (using a TB2 to TB3 adapter) is recognized but not available as an output. Same goes in mac, i can see kext being loaded, but it just wont show up in CoreAudio (Sounds) as an output. Any tips on how to troubleshoot TB thoroughly? In PCI under System Report, i can tell that one entry is the USB interface (it is properly output), and another one is Unknown, while both have the Driver loaded. Thunderbolt section says no driver loaded, but i keep reading that it is normal.One friendly advise. Don't waste your time with the TBEX 3 and directly opt for a GC-Alpine Ridge or even better for the GC-Titan Ridge. The latter will allow flawless TB and USB-C HotPlug in combination with the Deluxe. There is however a remaining wake problem with TB devices connected during sleep when using the GC-Titan Ridge with the Deluxe. With the GC-Titan Ridge, TB/USB-C HotPlug and full sleep/wake functionally only can be achieved with the ASUS WS X299 Sage 10G for now.
Hope this provides some useful clarifications.
If Windows is giving me similar issues, does this point out to TBEX 3 being the culprit?
