Hi GDS,
Thanks for the bios patch. Just to confirm that this is good to go for my Asus X99 Deluxe II, using the Bios Flashback.


for people interested, my tiny little contribution, the X99D2.CAP patched (as the X99-A2 and the Deluxe2 have different bios)
checksum different and size different
;)

This is to let you know that due to vacations, I will be basically unavailable from 28th March until 3rd April 2019.

Thanks for your comprehension, my friends..

@kgp Updated to 10.14.4 without any issues. The new XCPM patches make updating a much cleaner process. I can also confirm that my RX580 with the help of the Dummy141.kext now supports HEVC and H264 H/W encoding/decoding without any freezes or glitches.

Have a wonderful vacation. Cheers.

the bios attached works perfectly on my rig
BUT maybe a new one exists

so no problem at all
follow the way to patch it bec use sometimes it is pretty tricky to patch perfectly
(I did it with the button on the back)

Yes you can follow this guide @kgp that has done. As far as the bios and microcode, I would highly recommend running ubu on it to insert the full microcode into your bios image.

Dear community. Have one more question. I have working rig X99 Deluxe II with High Sierra, and going to update to Mohave. Sometimes, maybe 2-3 times a year I like to play some games. I'd like to buy two gtx1080ti to use my 4k tv at max. Now I have Vega 64. So:
-I can't install 3 video cards
-No web drivers for Mohave

Any suggestions how can I put all 3 cards and use nvidia in Windows gaming and AMD in mac for working? I have ThunderboltEX 3, so maybe I can buy external thunderbolt box for Vega 64 and use it in mac?

Thank you.
