You do not miss anything as already repeatedly stated, as you also already repeatedly confirmed that everything works as expected in your case!

You also do not have 6 DP ports but 3 + one additional HDMI port!

Please, stop permanently asking really obsolete questions, which just create unnecessary work at my side. Thanks in advance for your comprehension.
Mate... I was just asking about the card, nothing regarding your SSDT! Ok? Bye.

I'm really not sure as to why it works with this setting enabled. I assume it's using the integrated graphics from my 8700k, which must be why. The black screen I get if I disabled integrated graphics is strange – it's like it's loaded macOS but has lost display connection (I've tied HDMI vs DP, but it makes no difference). I assume that those who have this working with eGPUs are using standard Apple hardware which has integrated graphics enabled by default. Either that or I'm missing some Clover configuration/flag that gets around this issue.

I was able to test a Vega 64 a while back on the same setup I have now and I never needed to enable the integrated graphics to make it work – it just worked out the box.

Skylake-X or Broadwell-E and Haswell-E do not implement any iGPU like the 8700K, thus there is also no respective BIOS option in any respective X299 or X99 BIOS firmware. BTW..even WEG states an error on verbose boot: "igfx @ found unsupported processor 0x6 0x4f please report!"

@nmano,


Seems you disappeared ;)


I propose one last test:

1.) Remove firewire adapter, additional USB adapter and BT/WIFI adapter
2.) Remove SSDT-X299-SL01-FRWR-XHC2.aml and

Code:
            Device (EGP1)
            {
                Name (_ADR, 0x00100000)  // _ADR: Address
                Device (ARPT)
                {
                    Name (_ADR, Zero)  // _ADR: Address
                    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)  // _DSM: Device-Specific Method
                    {
                        Store (Package (0x0E)
                            {
                                "built-in",
                                Buffer (One)
                                {
                                     0x00                                        
                                },

                                "device-id",
                                Buffer (0x04)
                                {
                                     0xB1, 0x43, 0x00, 0x00                      
                                },

                                "AAPL,slot-name",
                                Buffer (0x07)
                                {
                                    "Slot-3"
                                },

                                "device_type",
                                Buffer (0x13)
                                {
                                    "AirPort Controller"
                                },

                                "model",
                                Buffer (0x38)
                                {
                                    "Broadcom BCM943XX 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac + BT 4.1 Controller"
                                },

                                "compatible",
                                Buffer (0x0D)
                                {
                                    "pci14e4,43b1"
                                },

                                "name",
                                Buffer (0x10)
                                {
                                    "AirPort Extreme"
                                }
                            }, Local0)
                        DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
                        Return (Local0)
                    }
                }
            }

from SSDT-X299-SL05-GFX0-HDAU-ARPT.aml, as well as BT/WIFI related kext.

Test sleep/wake.. If sleep/wake issue remains, only option left: verify BIOS settings ..

Hi, rolandino

For my FirePro W7100 i just disable AppleGraphicsDeviceControl in AMD9000blabla.kext. I dont use SSDT and Lilu+WEG after that but i dont use sleep and only dual monitors(all DP and hotplug works ok, not tested four display at the same time).

And please share you EFI folder, if posible

Thank You
yes, I can do this on Monday, cause I'm very busy the next two days.
Maybe let's move over to one of the C422 threads to discuss.

Some info about ASUS WS C422 Pro/SE BIOS Updates:
-v0802 released simultaneously with v1603 for Prime X299 Deluxe and has the same or similar isues. Still persist on download page.
-v0905 released three months later(2019/02/12) - no changes.

So it's interesting for users of this motherboard to know final results with the 1603 Bios for Deluxe MB

That's totally o.k. but for sleep/wake testing purposes, please remove temporarily now also BT/WIFI adapter. We need to see if it is the latter that breaks your system sleep/wake.

If system sleep/wake works, we can start reconnecting additional USB adapter, then firewire adapter and finally BT/WIFI adapter with connected USB bluetooth cable.

Thus now, please remove BT/WIFI adapter, BT kext, additional USB adapter, firewire adapter and respective SSDT implementations as outlined in post #2,037 and report back if sleep/wake works in this case.
