Thunderbolt USB is enabled. Interestingly enough I had `BIOS --> Security Level --> User Auth` and `GPIO3 Force Pwr --> Disabled`, when I corrected them and reset, the thunderbolt dock worked properly during boot: keyboard and mouse worked fine. I booted into macOS and then when I rebooted, it no longer worked in BIOS/Clover but worked upon macOS startup.

Yep, the keyboard still loses connection even if no devices are connected on its hub. But if devices are on the hub, they don't lose connection. Weird.

Anyways attached is my zipped up patched folder. I have a USBX and EC which I think are what you meant? My USB SSDT just enables the front ports + internal ports + the back ports that I use. I also have a patch to disable my Nvidia GPU in the first slot.
The USB configuration is correct. You have defined 13 out of a maximum of 15 ports, but both HS04 and SS04 are included.

At this point the problem might be with the keyboard itself. Have you tested the same scenario on a real Mac?

Please note that I had to disable HS03 in order to maintain a 15-port limit.
Ah, didn't notice that. As luck would have it, I don't have anything in either HS03 or HS04 so no effect.

We've generally had no issues with Messages and FaceTime, so let's check the basics:
  • WiFi/BT card installed and working. Both WiFi and Bluetooth enabled.
  • EmuVariableUefi should be copied to CLOVER/drivers64UEFI or CLOVER/drivers/UEFI folder.
  • Then reboot and log into Messages and FaceTime.
  • If still not successful, log out of iCloud, reboot, then log back into iCloud.
  • Now try logging into Messages and FaceTime.

I guess I got lucky. I’m on 19,1, IGPU enabled, VirtualSMC and all is working well with AptioMemoryFix.
Would you mind posting your config.plist? Also curious what you have in L/E and Kexts/other.

I will test this out today with my Macbook and then also try with another keyboard.

Good news regarding the thunderbolt dock though! I changed Thunderbolt Boot Support → Pre-boot ACL and now the mouse + keyboard work at boot + BIOS. That's all that was needed :) Makes sense as before I had it disabled.

Same findings here. 19,1, multiple PCIe cards, can only boot with AptioMemoryFix by disabling IGPU in BIOS.
I had this issue. I reset the CMOS using the jumper on the MoBo. Worked after this.

19,1, IGPU enabled. I’ve successfully done this multiple times.

@CaseySJ Cleaned up that .dsl file, replaced the .aml with the TEST1 .aml you provided. Rebooted and the front panel USBC3.1 reader now works. Hackintool screenshot attached. Must be USB2.0 internally.

Thanks, again, for the great How-To and the fantastic after-sale support. :thumbup:
Maybe a n00b question. I see 16 ports defined here. Does hackintool report what is supposed to be enabled/disabled or only what’s defined in the SSDT? I’ve noticed my hackintool showing 17 ports, so I’m concerned.

Hackintools will report what is active. You want a maximum of 15 ports on this mobo, so you'll need to inactivate 2 more ports.
