Yes, Thunderbolt tree is still truncated. Trying a cold boot now.Is the Thunderbolt tree still truncated in IORegistryExplorer? Please try a cold boot:
- MacOS --> Shutdown
- Then flip power switch on PSU to OFF for 10 seconds
EDIT: Tried a cold boot, results are the same. I wonder if something might have happened to the chip.
It's weird enough that after reflashing back to the original firmware, it still wasn't working.
Is there a way to check if the chip is fried?
There's also a very weird thing that happens after a while, when OSX is running. The system freezes completely and while that happens, it sends a weird white noise pattern type sound to the monitor's speakers. Reset button doesn't work, i have to force shut down. Worth mentioning that the default sound output isn't the monitor, it's my external USB sound card and internal audio is disabled.
LATER EDIT: Realized the freeze with the sound issue was caused by the XMP (Extreme memory profile) in BIOS, which was set to Profile 1 (2666 Mhz). Set it back to default, system is stable again.
