C. Install Kext to enable SATA HotPlug on Mojave again (thanks Sascha Lamprecht)
This has been working Great for me with 10.14.6!!!

1. Does this also work for 10.15.x - or cause any issues on 10.15.x so that it should be removed prior to upgrading from 10.14.6 to 10.15.x?

2. Does the SATA HotPlug kext also work from /EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other ?

3. What is the kext's name?

@joevt can you please check out this one. The Type names should now match and I've added a divider between the two lists so they can be resized properly. I also updated containsUSBPort to use the controller's locationID value.

I think it's working well now.

Great work :thumbup:

I think this caters to very specialised users, beyond the norm, but good to know it's in there.

Whoa, you can hot swap SATA drives while your Mac is on with this kext? You have to enable hotswap in BIOS, correct?

Yes, each SATA port has a separate HotSwap enable setting in the Gigabyte BIOS. Works great, except PathFinder won't unmount the drives, but Finder will.

Sick! I have 8 SATA ports in my motherboard and a matching number of ICYDOCK hotswap bays - being able to hotswap drives will be marvelous! Thank you :)
