Yes. I only have problem to inject HDMI audio without ssdt.
To inject anything, what is needed to know? PCI address from bootlog and what else?
If I wanted to inject my nvidia card, what would I look for besides PCI Addr?
This is so exciting!
(thanks!)

Just copy information from ssdt or from ioreg. For exemple injecting Audio card:

What is the minimum amount of info necessary? PciAddr, Name, device ID?

Find your Thunderbolt PCI adres in boot log and create arbitrary for TB3 device (1578 device id)
You can apply this for all your device. So there are no need for using ssdt. Everything can by concentrate in one config.plist.

But I thing this technic is not compatible with your guide.
is PCI-Thunderbolt arbitrary or a name found in SSDT/IOREG?

When you find out, let me know.
I haven't been able to get that part going, a press of F1 just turn off the screen.
Auto brightness no longer work either...
I just noticed something and it may not be something new for people here....

but on a real Mac keyboard (white wired with numpad) and real Mac display (27" Apple LED Cinema Display via miniDisplayPort>DisplayPort) F14 and F15 are now brightness controls. This is without any applications running.

For some reason I started getting slide errors from AptioMemoryFix on my MSI board, and noticed there's a couple of recent fixes which aren't in the version in the EFI folder of this guide. Therefore I downloaded and built the release version of the head of the Github repository which works fine. Attached here.

Hey there,
I'm having a little trouble debugging a kernel panic that I've been getting on my system. i9-7920x running on an Asus X299-A mobo. Nvidia 1080 Ti running on 378.10.10.10.25.106.

I performed the "patched" bios and confirmed that MSR 0xE2 is unlocked. I performed a clean install of 10.13.3 on an 1TB SSD and only installed Chrome, VLC, Clover Config and Nvidia drivers via this script: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/nvidia-update-simple-way-to-install-nvidia-web-drivers.244987/

I can create the KP by playing two videos from a local file at the same time. After a while it will completely freeze. One in VLC, one in Quicktime. But the machine will lock up randomly at other times, while idling or under load. While writing this I had the machine lock up on me. This is the same issue I was running into on a previous install so I figured I'd try to start fresh on another SSD.

Here's what the Apple Error report produced when I rebooted. I'm not very advanced and any help would be appreciated in figuring out what's happening. The report is the same each crash.
