Thanks for the answer. Did all the three solution but the problem persists. It won't go over the Start ReadKernelCache. It's so frustrating because I made it yesterday before I posted here.
Please compress and upload the CLOVER folder from the USB install disk. By the way, are you pressing F12 at BIOS Splash screen and choosing to boot from the USB flash disk?

Some important news for 9700K and 9900K owners. Have to wonder how they will remove the heat produced by 9th gen chips in an iMac. The i9-9900K is an option. Please Apple, don't tell me the answer is thermal throttling the CPU. :think:

Wow! So the 0x3E98 device ID of the UHD630 should finally be supported natively. And “About this Mac” should also identify the CPU. I would like to compare GeekBench numbers!

Oh, and there’s no T2 chip!

neither working
If Bluetooth is still not functional after moving the WiFi/BT card to a long slot (one of the three x16 slots) then it's time to consider two options:
  1. Try using a different PCIe x1 adapter.
  2. Replace the Broadcom card with one that has 20702 firmware or switch to a BCM94360CD. The 94360CD is newer, but a bit more expensive than the 93460CS2.
You still haven't mentioned the exact make and model of the WiFi/BT card. Can you share an Amazon or NewEgg link to the exact model that you have?

I actually made it, i did update the motherboard’s firmware to the F5 version and it worked. I really don’t know what I did exactly but in the end everything worked as you typed in this guide. Now I need to finish the last section. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate your work.

@manHands ,

Sounds like this may be an option, possibly ideal if it works on hackintosh out of the box. It does state that it is PCe 3.0 x1 . Downside it does not have any reviews ...

Nice find! Yes, two of these would satisfy my bandwidth needs. And since I could install these into the X1 ports, that'll leave the PCIEX8 and PCIEX4 unoccupied for future use. Thanks!

Where did you purchase the Define R6 from? I've been waiting for it (not the tempered glass version) to go on sale, but the price has been pretty stagnant on Amazon and Newegg the last 2+ months.

Nice! New SMBIOS for us i9'ers. Although.. I don't know if I'd even switch because it's a big hassle for software licenses. Also curious about how they're going to cool that thing. My Noctua cooler does a great job but it's gigantic!

I think it would suit the Z390 chipset better, probably worth it. No more Unknown CPU as well :)
