Yes I have exactly your described setup. Gigabyte Designare Z390, 9900K, etc.Hello @floodline,
Based on your first sentence I'll assume that all of your questions pertain to the Gigabyte Z390 Designare. To answer your questions:
Again, bottom line: I do not recommend the use of Thunderbolt monitors unless you are willing to discover and adopt workarounds for the various issues that will occur.
- Flashing the TB firmware on Z390 Designare is not necessary to get a video signal to most Thunderbolt displays. Thunderbolt displays -- with or without flashed firmware -- will exhibit a number of problems. The display may not turn on during BIOS or OpenCore. The display may not turn on after wake-from-sleep.
- The devices built into the Thunderbolt Display (USB ports, Camera, Microphone, Firewire) will most likely require flashing the Thunderbolt firmware.
- In general I do not recommend the use of Thunderbolt displays on Hackintosh. The experience can be frustrating and you will need to discover and adopt workarounds for yourself.
- For all information about flashing, please refer to Quick Reference spoiler, Section 8, at the top of Post 1.
If I'm totally ok with the USB plugs, camera etc. Not working on the Thunderbolt Display, would still love the sleep/wake to work, and that I can confidently boot my computer "blind", would I even have to flash, or enable bus?
If I do have to flash or enable bus, How do I do that? I cant seem to find a definitive guide without it looking like a seperate titan ridge controller was purchased. Is there a way to do it without a raspberry pi?
If I dont, is it really as simple as display port wire from RX580 to the built in mobo DP, then thunderbolt adapter out to the display from one of the thunderbolt ports on the motherboard?
Again, very sorry for the probably super nooby questions.
