I used the Brumbaers CFG Unlock tool, and confirmed that the CFG is unlocked in this mobo.
Awesome! I have asked ASUS and the are still finding out

I think for hackintoshing on ProArt, we will have to wait till iMac is out. I will wait till Big Sur is officially released.

Has anyone of you tried the OG Apple Thunderbolt display on the Asus ProArt with Windows ? I really want to use my display again, I'm looking forward to this board.
it works on the board you have if you change out the Thunderbolt firmware.

Hey @Stork, @dukekaboom and @wwanxh, ASUS replied back to me and told me that this ProArt Z490 Creator motherboard model didn't design CFG Lock on BIOS. I think it's no problem because ASUS didn't say that this model have this function. So what do you think guys? Everything so far confirms that the CFG is not locked on this motherboard, is not it? :headbang:

indeed, it is unlocked, so we don’t need to worry about this anymore. Haha. but this is my first time to build a Hackintosh, I still cannot get it working. It is just stuck at Apple logo boot screen.

Got another update about Asus motherboards:
"There is quite an amount of issues in Z490 firmwares. For example, on the ASUS board we had Multi-Monitor functionality was broken, XMP made the system unbootable, and XHCI SSDT violated ACPI specification at its best. "

Where did you find this? Link, please.

I ask because this guy made it work, I believe.
