Updated to 10.13.5 from 10.13.4 using the following procedures for an AMD graphics card system (for a Nivida graphics card system, see Post #2 here):

:ch: Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
:ch: Update to the latest Clover (currently v4509): Downloads > Clover Builds.
Note: the tonymacx86 version of v4509 fixes problem with standard v4509. See MacMan's note here.​
:ch: Update your apfs.efi according to tonymacx86s guide How to Update + Current and Past apfs.efi Downloads;
:ch: Update from Apple's Mac App Store - the updater will reboot twice;
:ch: Upon rebooting into High Sierra after the last reboot, you can:
:ch: Check to see if your audio is working. If not, do the following two steps which I had to do:
:ch:Run the MultiBeast and select:
:ch:100 / 200 / 300 Series Audio Support
:ch:200 / Z370 Series / X299 Audio Device ID Patch​
:ch:Build -> Install
:ch:Reboot
:ch:Run MultiBeast again and select:
:ch:ALC1220​
:ch:Build -> Install
:ch:Reboot again​

My system don’t recognize fw card... i have kext and all but no luck..
I'm using no special kext for this FW card...it just works - plug & play.

Is your UAD Firewire 400 or 800? I've been using the FW 800 connections. I'll see if I can find a FW400 device to check. If you have another OS installed and are Multi-booting, check out the card in another OS.

Maybe try a different slot.
Which slot is yours in @Stork ?

From that information, it indicates that the Sybra may be dead. Did you try it with another OS? Or in another computer?

However, in the System Report > Hardware > Firewire I see the following:


In the PCI heading, it shows no PCI on my system which is strange.


But, all my other PCIe cards are shown under the appropriate category for Graphics/Displays and Bluetooth (and WiFi which is a PCIe card).

So, if it's a good card and seated correctly, it should show up under the Firewire in System Reports.
