We struggled with this for a while. For example, we tried not only multiple versions of Thunderbolt firmware but different modifications on each version. I'll add an appropriate notice in the Thunderbolt Repository.

Although everyone is experiencing the warm-boot issue on add-in-cards only (not on built-on controllers) I don't think everyone is experiencing those kernel panics.

You're welcome to try, but we were not able to solve the warm-boot issue with any of these.

The modified DROMs are based on the original DROM that accompanied each device. The modified GC-Alpine Ridge DROM is therefore based on the original GC-Alpine Ridge DROM.

If your motherboard has a Thunderbolt header (THB_C) then it's highly advisable to use it -- or at least to experiment with it. Such motherboards also provide Thunderbolt configuration parameters in BIOS, and those parameters should be configured properly. If in doubt about those parameters, simply post screenshot(s).

If your motherboard has a DisplayPort output on the rear IO panel, then try connecting that to one of the DP-INs on the GC-Alpine Ridge. Platform ID should be 0x3E9B0007, which I suspect it is already because you're already relying on internal graphics.


Regarding the warm-boot issue, are those having this problem putting a the jumper wire from pins 1 to 3? That was mentioned as being necessary to get it to boot in this video, and also one of the people selling the pre-flashed cards on ebay mentions including a jumper cable.

Alas, we need a simple USB-C to DP cable (or even USB-C to HDMI).
I purchased a USB-C to DP cable, and I cant get any video out even in BIOS with it. Am I missing something?

@Elias64Fr ,
Can we make a custom firmware for the ThunderboltEX2 with these two firmwares ?

EDIT: Sorry, the second firmware was an ARM executable code...

Please try the following after making a full bootable backup:
  • Because you're running BIOS F9g, your CFG-Lock is already unlocked!
  • Now enable Native NVRAM by following this procedure (ignore the steps for unlocking MSR 0xE2 because it's already unlocked):

Thanks CaseySJ
This gives me a lot of respect and fear
where I modify or determine VarOffset
and where is the grub indicator

I was wondering.....how does one go about a clean installation? On a Mac I can boot into the MacOS recover and wipe / re install Mac OS.

after more than a year with Casey’s amazing build I feel like it’s time to do a clean sweep.

any suggestions as to the best way to do a clean MacOS installation on a Hackintosh?

Completely start from scratch using OpenCore / 10.15.6 would be my advise.

By the way, on-board HDMI port is working again thanks to recent changes in Lilu and WhateverGreen. Details are posted at the top of this page.

To use HDMI or USB-C to DP, we need to set platform ID to 0x3E9B0007. The procedure for this can be referenced through the Quick Reference spoiler or simply click below. If problem persists, please post your config.plist. Recent builds of Hackintool appear to be using an incorrect plist tag.

If you are planning to install (or reinstall) Catalina, simply follow the Catalina 10.15.4+ Mini-Guide, which is Clover Based, but can be replaced with OpenCore afterwards using the OpenCore mini-guide. Links to both guides are at the top of Post 1, just under the photograph.

so i don't know if i missed this in the guide, but the "cheaper" (black) SOIC8 clamp mentioned has 1mm pitch pins... the plastic housings of the regular jumpers you get for 0.1" headers like raspberry pis are too thick to fit on the pins next to one another. i ordered some 1mm breakouts (connector -> header pin) from amazon. i thought about soldering to the SOIC clamp, or maybe cutting the pins to different heights, but figured it was better to wait than to mess it all up. the good news is that the cheap clamp fits onto the macronix parts quite well, at least mechanically.

on the x299 prime deluxe II one of the two chips is fully visible in the case cutout, so i'll dump that one first and send it along in the hopes that it's the right one of the two. if not i'll take the motherboard out and dump the other one.
The cheaper SOIC8 clip usually comes in a packet with some accessories, one of which is in the photo below. The regular jumper wires fit onto the accessory.

I used the new lilu and weg that was posted and hdmi is indeed working, typing from it now, ive been doing a run through on this clean catalina install and i have almost everything working, bluetooth and wifi are good (azurewave/fenvi), hw acc seems good, only issue im getting is the computer does not appear to be able to wake from sleep, the fans stop when it goes to sleep and a click of the mouse wakes the machine, but the display never comes back, dont know whats up with that, could be the early lilu and weg

edit: when attempting to open premiere pro the system hard freezes, is there a known issue around that/solution?
lightroom c, photoshop and afteraffects all seem to work fine though i noted some slight sluggishness moving around the frame while zoomed in, could just be the 45mp raw photo taking the igpu to task, idk. Im attaching the crash report if that provides any insight, thanks
