Hi.
Can you please tell me what I need to change after switching to the GPU?
I have been using the iGPU for over a year. I have now bought the rx570.
I don't have JPG preview working now.
Defined as Mac mini (2018).

Thank you!

Are you using Clover or OpenCore?

Please look inside the SSDTs and you'll find the answers.
I checked all of your SSDT's. I didn't find any similarity compared to AWAC in your SSDT's. I have 2 other open core EFI's to compare. Both like you don't have AWAC SSDT in there, but on dortania is mentioned to use it is very important...I really don't get it...Could you give me a direction?

*** Thunderbolt DROM Micro-Guide for Gigabyte GC-Titan Ridge V1.0 ***
Please do not quote this micro-guide in its entirety. Post a link instead.​
Posted this in a different thread- realized a week later that I’d probably get a response if I actually quoted the procedure I’m stuck on. Hopefully @CaseySJ or @djlild7hina can chime in :)

Here's what else is happening.

- Before I flashed it, I always had to unplug / replug the card right after I powered it up for the card to work. That still applies, but now, I can't even see the BIOS or any of the verbose mode during boot (which I always leave on). In fact, the monitors shut off due to no signal, then pop on once MacOS is booted. I guess this is a side-effect of using the flashed BIOS and the MiniDisplayPort cables routing from the video card to the Titan Ridge (if I need the BIOS, I can plug an HDMI in directly- so that's not the end of the world).

- If I follow what’s quoted, I can't get anything to connect to my Titan Ridge in any capacity. (I'm sure it's related to setting it to PC00 as @CaseySJ and I discussed previously in a different thread), but I'm wondering if I did the process wrong.

- In System Report on the Hackintosh, the speed shows as 20Gb/s x2. I'm assuming this is also normal?

- As stated at the beginning, hot plug is completely gone. Before the flash, if I unplugged/replugged everything came back normally. Now, I have to either plug in an HDMI or just hold the power button for 5 seconds .... then because of the connected Thunderbolt 3 dock not powering on boot (an issue I had when TB3 was fully functioning with the old firmware), I have to unplug the Thunderbolt 3 cable when I power up, wait a second or 2, then plug it in :lol:

Any advice would be great lol. As it stands now, I'm using the original AML files @CaseySJ supplied me earlier in the other thread and it's running all my devices like it did, except now with Thunderbolt 3 showing up in the System Report & no hot-plug at all.... so I'm getting SOMEWHERE LOL

Please see the Dortania sentence shown below.
  • The word most does not mean "all".
  • If this SSDT was necessary, then Z390 Designare would not boot without it.
  • And yet it's booting and working very well.
ergo:
  • SSDT-AWAC is not necessary on Z390 Designare.

Now contrast that with the version below for Comet Lake (note the word all):

SSDT-AWAC is necessary for Z490 Vision D, which is why it is already included in the Gigabyte Z490 Vision D OpenCore EFI zip.

This might be fixable with an HDMI Ghost Plug (the word "might" does not mean it will be fixable). Consider using something like this:
- If I follow what’s quoted, I can't get anything to connect to my Titan Ridge in any capacity. (I'm sure it's related to setting it to PC00 as @CaseySJ and I discussed previously in a different thread), but I'm wondering if I did the process wrong.

Let's have a look at the following:
  • IOReg file
  • Thunderbolt SSDT

- As stated at the beginning, hot plug is completely gone. Before the flash, if I unplugged/replugged everything came back normally. Now, I have to either plug in an HDMI or just hold the power button for 5 seconds .... then because of the connected Thunderbolt 3 dock not powering on boot (an issue I had when TB3 was fully functioning with the old firmware), I have to unplug the Thunderbolt 3 cable when I power up, wait a second or 2, then plug it in :lol:

Let's come back to this after the first two above.

Send it as it is now? (I’m running the old AML file for connectivity as it works) or use the files I generated from this thread?

Please post both SSDTs and the IOReg. But the preference is for IOReg with the “correct” SSDT (PC00) loaded at boot time.

Here's the AML I'm currently using that's loading correctly and the current IOReg.
