I would the test that with my hack aswell but I am a little bit lost without an guide how to create a custom one... To be honest @CaseySJ

Would love to test this with PCIe Card.

** Several New Apple Products Announced Today **

  • New iPad Pros with LIDAR scanner
  • New Mac mini
    • Only a storage bump
  • New MacBook Air with 10th Gen Intel CPU (does it have WIFi 6?)
    • No WiFi 6!
    • But 2x the performance.
    • Four-core model with 512GB at $1299. Not bad.

@NorthAmTransAm @CaseySJ
On your log, I can see that you don't have our damn error 0xe00002be but like on my previous screenshot :

IOThunderboltEEPROM::getDROM - Error getting DROM from I/O Registry (0xe0000001)
Same error description BUT different error code :confused:
@Elias64Fr @CaseySJ
Is the difference in error codes Alpine and Titan?

Mine is Alpine and @qthegaijin 's was a Titan.

I might experiment with Bus ID as well. I'll change back to 00 and see if it shifts.

Very fair questions. This is our current understanding (which is subject to change):
  • Enabling Port 7 might provide more robust Thunderbolt Local Node capabilities such as Thunderbolt Ethernet Bridge. It might be required for Target Disk Mode (which we have not tested).
  • Enabling Port 7 might provide more robust compatibility with certain Thunderbolt devices, including perhaps some digital audio interfaces. More work needed to establish this.
Target Mode Disk works also!!

I've connected my MBP via to my Z390 Aorus Xtreme and I can see both partitions from my MBP as if they are external USB disks... Very impressive!!

And the MBP screen shows the battery / the lightning icon!!

Apologies for dirty screen! :mrgreen:

But not very fast transfer rate:

OMG! Very impressive!

But you know I have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) when it comes to precision! So can you please:
  • Enter fake CRC32 to disable port 7.
  • Try Target Disk Mode again.
  • Does it work?
@Elias64Fr -- you'll want to see this!


@augustopaulo,

To be clear: Did you set up your MacBook Pro in Target Disk Mode first, like this:

Apple Menu --> System Preferences --> Startup Disk --> Target Disk Mode.

@CaseySJ something I noticed while changing Bus ID's. Btw, what Bus ID should we use for an add in card? 01 I assumed.

Bus ID: 00 requires CRC8=37
Bus ID: 01 requires CRC8=24
Bus ID: 02 requries CRC8=11

You can use any Thunderbolt Bus ID as long as it's unique. Start at 0 and increment by 1 for each additional controller.

If your Hackintosh shows Thunderbolt Bus in System Information --> Thunderbolt, then simply type this:
Code:
log show --last boot | grep Thunderbolt > ~/Documents/TB3.txt
Based on what we see in the file we may or may not need to run Part 2 of this test.
