I have an Intel ET2 quad port adapter (82576) chipset), and I am using the small tree drivers for it. when I to to configure a link aggregation group, the only label I am seeing is "Ethernet". is there any way to get the interfaces names to list correctly? It makes it hard to determine if I am choosing the correct interfaces or not.

I've recently bought this card, which works under Big Sur 11.6.3 perfectly with old, patched Mojave drivers v3.5.0 from SmallTree. It uses the same chipset as the genuine Intel X520-DA2.


I'm wondering if someone out here managed to patch the latest SmallTree drivers v3.8.6 and/or patched the card firmware itself to be used with SmallTree drivers.

Note that the driver patch allows the SmallTree drivers to work with unmodified genuine Intel cards, and, as it turns out, with the card linked above.

I have just purchased this card for another (non-Hackintosh) project but no longer need it so I am really hoping I can get it to work in my Hackintosh. Been trying for a few hours with the SmallTree drivers but so far no luck on Monterey 12.2

Try using this AppleIGB.kext, some people have been able to get their Ethernet ports working with it.

I'm not sure Mojave drivers work in Monterey. I only used the card with Big Sur.

I'm attaching the patched driver I use, which I mentioned before. It works for Intel X520-DA2, 10Gtek X520-10G-2S and Intel X550T I have in Gigabyte x299x board. Kext version is 3.8.6, per kextstat.

I myself downloaded from, IIRC, this very site. Most likely from this thread:

EDIT - not from that thread, they're different - the one on the message #1 is v3.5.0, from here:
I think there is another one on the same thread, you can find it and compare with attached to be sure you're not using some malware.
/EDIT

Use at your own risk.

I'm just tracking down what appears to be the latest version of x520/540 drivers, there are other vendors using this chipset but with drivers from late 2021.

does anyone know of a program on the mac that can reliably track installed files?
I need to be able to run the installer & identify exactly what files are placed where.

Hi, all.

I have a Intel X722-da4, MacPro 7,1.

Is it possible to make it works on Monterey.

X722 works well under ubuntu without install any extra driver.

My motherboard is epc621d8a.

vendor: 8086

Thx...

Hi there,

Yes it's possible but you'll need an AMD dGPU in order to run it.
There is an Opencore build here for your board
