So,
Unfortunately this is a known problem.

@CaseySJ:

Is this a problem that can only be solved by the jumper cable? If the jumper cable that shorts some pins on the TRidge card was plugged in at boot, then with nothing plugged in (other than the jumper cable), the TB tree would appear?

Of course, not everyone wants to do that, especially if they have the proper power connectors for the TR card. As long as TB works on the Titan Ridge when I do plug things in and the tree appears, that would be good enough for me.

Congratulations! Welcome to the club (of mad scientists). :)
:lol: Thank you Sir!!
I'v definitely better UAD Thunderbolt experience with sample rates!

I just switched SMBIOS to iMacPro1,1 to have Apple TV and the all DRM stuff, and because I've i9-9900KF I guess this SMBIOS is better in my case. I'll let you know if I see some differences.

Where can I send you some beers? :mrgreen:

Really your guides are very easy to understand, thank you very much, you helped me a lot for my first hackintosh and computer build!

Hello @qadri,

We have intentionally disabled USB 2 protocol on all of the USB-C/TB3 ports in order to maintain a limit of 15 USB ports. Only USB 3 and Thunderbolt devices will work.

The USB-C cable that comes in the iPad Pro box does not support USB 3. You have 3 options:
  • Use any Thunderbolt 3 cable
  • Purchase a USB-C to USB-C cable that supports USB 3.x (see bottom of Note 5 below)
  • Use a USB-C to USB Type A cable that supports USB 3.x
This is explained in the Catalina build guides as follows:

OK, so I have followed the guides, and I borrowed a Raspberry Pi and bought the clips and cables. ( I also have a degree in computer engineering and have written many linux kernel modules so I'm not a newbie ). I am following updated supplemental Procedure. I have tried the following command:

sudo flashrom -p linux_spi:dev=dev/spidev0.0,spispeed=1024 -r Designare.bin

So I think I followed the directions wiring the system up...

But I can't seem to get the chip to reply... Any tips?

@jb007 - can you comment on this post? - I've triple checked my connections and tried reducing the speed value on the spi bus to no avail. Please and thank you :)

Just installed the opencore bootloader on an USB thumb drive for some testing. Worked the first time, thanks to the very clear mini guide in this thread. Well done!

Now, can someone remind me of the improvements compared to Clover?

According to them, these:

@CaseySJ and @NorthAmTransAm

@tonymacx86 is getting this motherboard and will put together a Build Description.

I, too, am sorely tempted to get this motherboard.

Hi Stork, when do you expect to have a build description for the ProArt Z490? I am a beginner in Hackintosh, and I tried to install mac on my i9-10900K + ProArt Z490 + RX 5700XT build, but I am always stuck at the boot. I attached the OpenCore log below. I tried all the options I could think of, but no luck. I am really hoping you guys could help me out and get the build description soon. Thank you in advance!

Not to jump in, but have you worked through this?

Hi canyondust,

Yes, I have followed the instructions to make my plist. I also copied the plist file from a success ASUS Z490 build (yilmazca - Asus-prime-Z490A-hackintosh), but no luck at all. I attached my EFI zip file below, I would really appreciate if you could take a look for me. Thanks!

(**UPDATE) I found an interesting error that the error message says it couldn't find "\_SB.PCI0.XHC.RHUB", however in my DSDT, I can only find "\_SB_.PCI0.XHC_.RHUB. *" ('*' could be INIR, PS0X, PS2X, PS3X). But I don't know how can I correct the naming to match what I have on my motherboard.

Hello @Elias64Fr,

Just got a chance to examine your modified NVM 50. Regarding SubsystemID, are you referring to these three bytes? If so, does this make a functional difference or a cosmetic difference on the Designare Z390? In other words, if these 3 bytes are not changed, what effect do you observe?

Hi, @CaseySJ
What app is this, can you tell me? I want to research my own firmware.
Thanks!
