This is my first Hackintosh!

So far I have these things working:

3 nvme drives (2 are soft RAID0)
1 sata BluRay burner
2 sata 4TB drives (soft RAID0)
Sleep!!!
Shutdown! (Stays off)
PCI wifi card
USB 2,3, and C

I downgraded the BIOS to F5 and just left it there. I uninstalled the built-in wifi card (guess I lose bluetooth, but I don't use it anyways), as I was trying to loose some junk. I've only used Multibeast since I don't fully grasp clover yet.

I have not activated my Thunderbolt card yet, (I seriously don't want to buy windows just for this), and I haven't figured out hardware decoding.

Occasionally it won't boot (cross-out), but restart seems to fix this.
