Hi Casey,
It has been a while since my last visit, and, because I want to switch to OpenCore, here I come again and find out the massive update!
I have now updated to OpenCore 0.6.2 using your EFI, and my macOS is also uptodate now, with 10.15.7.
Just want to say again thank you so much for all of you making this amazing guide!

For people who wanted to go straight through a fresh install, remember to follow the BIOS setup in to first page as well as the one mentioned in the mini guide 0.5.7 - 0.6.2. And of course, the unlock the CFG lock and reset the NVRAM before starting.

Hi. Just a short note on Thunderbolt3 devices. Presonus Quantum 2626 TB3 works flawlessly with the Z390 Designare. Running Logic X Pro.. very low latency, good quality preamps.
Wonderfull!! If you are looking for a Thunderbolt Audio interface fit for a hackintosh, here it is. Presonus Quantum 2626.
Hi!
Since I still fear flashing the Thunderbolt chip, did your 2626 need any of that? In other words: Did you have to do anything besides the general setup from the guide to make it work?

thx!

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the TP-Link T9E. This build guide recommends the Fenvi FV-T919 or FV-HB1200. Have you searched TonyMac or the Internet for possible solutions to this problem?

@CaseySJ , hmm ran 0.5.7 - 0.6.1 without a hitch, now having a few problems with 0.6.2 in works fine until Apple logo, then no progress bar. I'm just trying to -v verbose now but proving difficult, anybody else with this or is it possibly the new 0.7.6 USBInject ?? Just thought I'd ask whilst I tinker in plist

EDIT: Solved. A Typo in a kext.
