First OC-> ACPI put the SSDT-AQUANTIA.aml in it.
Add an entry in config.plist [Root] -> ACPI ->Add -> SSDT-AQUANTIA.aml (enabled yes )
( to load the driver)


Add an first entry [Root] -> Kernel -> Patch -> com.apple.driver.AppleEthernetAquantiaAqtion Find 81F9B107 0000
Replace 81F9B100 0000
(for the deviceID)

after that

Add an second entry [Root] -> Kernel -> Patch -> com.apple.driver.AppleEthernetAquantiaAqtion Find 0F84C002 0000
Replace 660F1F44 0000
(I have no clue because everybody does)

maybe a nvram clear (nvram -c)

Give it a try
This worked for me! Thanks. It was the AML i was lacking from the OP

Hi everyone,

I am running Opencore on my MacPro 5.1 and BigSur 11.2.3 and I would like to get my Aquantia ACQ107 based card working.
Can you someone guide me on how to do so?

I've read this thread and have hackintool, macIASL and opencore configurator downloaded.
I've attached a screenshot of the PCIe line from hackintool regarding this card.

I've tried to update the SSDT-AQUANTA.aml found in this thread and here is the modification I've done:

DefinitionBlock ("", "SSDT", 2, "_NICO_", "AQUANTIA", 0x00900000)
{
External (_SB_.PCI0.IOU2.I2PS.PPB4, DeviceObj)
External (_SB_.PCI0.IOU2.I2PS.PPB4.PXS4, DeviceObj)

Scope (\_SB.PCI0.IOU2.I2PS.PPB4)
{
Scope (PXS4)
{
Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) // _STA: Status
{
If (_OSI ("Darwin"))
{
Return (Zero)
}
Else
{
Return (0x0F)
}
}
}

Is that correct?
But if I understand well, I need to add the DeviceID/VendorID as well somewhere but where?
