** Experiment Update #2 **
AppleVTD and Apple Gigabit-to-Ethernet Adapter Problems FIXED


@Elias64Fr has done it again! The Apple Gigabit-to-Ethernet adapter -- which supports AVB -- is now functional in Big Sur. It was necessary to solve the AppleVTD puzzle, which has now been done.

We are working to determine the exact configuration necessary for this, and will provide details later. This is a significant step forward in making Thunderbolt on Hackintosh behave more like that on a real Mac.

Correct. Turns out that after enabling Vt-d in BIOS and removing dart=0 from boot arguments, we forgot to uncheck DisableIoMapper in Kernel section of config.plist. This was the missing piece. So all three of these have to be done:
  • BIOS Setup --> Enable Vt-d
  • Boot Arguments --> Remove "dart=0"
  • Kernel Section --> Uncheck "DisableIoMapper"

Interesting!

When I disable I0Mapper I get AppleVTD but lose my BRCM4360! ARPT still loads but I've got the slash across the wifi symbol. Investigating.

** Looking for one Antelope Audio owner willing to test new BIOS **

If you own an Antelope Audio Thunderbolt interface and ...
  1. You are running Mojave, Catalina, or Big Sur​
  2. You are using OpenCore​
  3. You are using Gigabyte Z390 Designare​
  4. Your Designare is running BIOS F9i (official version; download from here)​
... then we invite you to test a new Z390 Designare BIOS and slightly modified BIOS parameters and OpenCore config file. The goal is to see whether Antelope Audio drivers will recognize and work on your Z390 Designare Hackintosh.

On the Gigabyte Z390 Designare, the Fenvi FV-T919 is still fully functional:

I'm having the same experience with these settings exactly. Apple Ethernet adapter is working, but the Fenvi card will not work. In fact, I'm seeing a message about the board in post, pre OpenCore.

Hmm, I just downloaded your EFI to see what you do for ARPT. Do you not use AirportBRCMFixup?
Correct -- we do not use AirportBrcmFixup because it's not needed for BCM94360 modules.

You know what, I think in an earlier OS version I couldn't access the Handoff option in settings without device ARPT so I used the kext to do that. I just checked my settings and whattayaknow, Handoff option is there without the kext. Thanks for the tip.
