Correct, except that the file extension is .aml instead of .alm. Just a typo, I know. AML = ACPI Machine Language.Wow, didn't expect such a prompt response. How do you have time to compile and share all this knowledge and then provide individual support? So generous of you. Hate to take advantage of your kindness, but could I confirm that the new SSDT I will need to replace the older one is SSDT-TBOLT3-RP05-V3.alm?
Huge thanks to you in advance!
Enabling Thunderbolt Bus through a firmware flash incurs risk of electrical and physical damage. Near-sighted individuals have the advantage here, but they should remove corrective lenses in order to focus their eyes more easily and without fatigue when attaching the SOIC clip. Far-sighted individuals should, of course, wear corrective lenses or delegate the clipping/unclipping task to someone one. Steady hands are also necessary because there are tiny surface mount resistors in the immediate vicinity that may be dislodged if the SOIC clip strikes them.
It's very important to read the relevant guides two or three times in advance. Shortcuts can lead to disaster. Impatience can lead to disaster. Frustration can lead to disaster.
After attaching the SOIC clip, if the Winbond chip is not readable for any reason, do not force it. Try very gently to reseat the SOIC clip, and if the problem persists STOP immediately and let us know. Take a coffee break or even call it a day and resume the next morning. This gives time to decompress and reflect on what might be going wrong.
Remember, most people will encounter chip-read failures, but they will eventually figure out the solution. If you use the simple circuit board with a single resistor and capacitor (please see Quick Reference Guide, section 8.2.6 -- I'll let you figure out where that section is ) you should have the least amount of difficulty. But if you take a shortcut (i.e. not use the circuit) you may still succeed, but may run into some difficulty.
And finally, if you succeed, we'll welcome you into the Society of Mad Scientists!
