No, external hard drives via USB. Like flash drives work, but all external hard drives connected via USB do not. I've searched online and this is a common problem.

I've had this problem, but only when I'm trying to boot from one, like a backup created by CCC.

I didn't face this problem before, I have external hard drive work for me when connected via USB. I have WD my passport and using it quite often.

I don't know then. I haven't changed anything in your EFI except for the iMac model and the serial numbers.

The drive does not show up. The drive also works on my MacBook and 2 other iMacs that I've tested on.

Edit: Apparently USB 3.0 devices don't work but USB 2.0 devices do.

Edit 2: I swapped out the SSDT-EC.aml and SSDT-USBX.aml out for SSDT-EC-USBX.aml and now things show up in Hackintool under USB, but the drive still doesn't show up.

Edit 3: I got it working!!! I had to remove USBInjectAll.kext and use USBPorts.kext as well as update the model in it's info.plist

Please refresh the list in USB tab, there are many things nonsenses there.

I generated EC and USBX in windows, it's cleaner than the file you grab from dortania guild, the guild is common for many computers.

By default, I disable USBInjectAll and using USBPorts.kext (to make sure 15 ports limit work). In this USBPorts.kext doesn't have TypeC and front panel port. Please notice that, or you can generate one by yourself.

Anw, cheer man. Glad that your hack work.

I went and remapped my USB ports, all of them work now including my single front USB port, front USB-C, and rear USB-C

You're at 17, which is above the 15 port limit, this might cause issues with sleep, data corruption, etc. etc.

agree.

your config over 15 ports and the Aura Led Controller and IOUSBHostDevice should be internal.
