I've read at MacRumors that DSM2 fixed issues related to kernel panics, etc., with the Titan Ridge PCIe card. Are you guys in contact? Maybe he could share some Infos.

Hi.
Thank you very much for the work you are doing.
I have followed the mini guides to configure my hakintos, and, between switching from Clover to OpenCore ,I have decided to stay with Clover due to the difficulties or the package I am.
My BIOS version is F9g.
I have tried updating to 10.15.6 and it gives me an error, and I cannot get it.
I send you my config plist and some more information if you can help me.
Regards.
Luisan

** On-Board HDMI Port Works Again **

Thanks to an early compilation of the forthcoming versions of Lilu and WhateverGreen by @RockArtist, the on-board HDMI port is finally working again in Catalina. These changes should be in the next official releases.

Please see this post for details:
Modified versions of Lilu and WhateverGreen are located here:

Please try the following after making a full bootable backup:
  • Because you're running BIOS F9g, your CFG-Lock is already unlocked!
  • Now enable Native NVRAM by following this procedure (ignore the steps for unlocking MSR 0xE2 because it's already unlocked):

So I don't know if I missed this in the guide, but the "cheaper" (black) SOIC8 clamp mentioned has 1mm pitch pins... the plastic housings of the regular jumpers you get for 0.1" headers like Raspberry Pi's are too thick to fit on the pins next to one another. I ordered some 1mm breakouts (connector -> header pin) from Amazon. I thought about soldering to the SOIC clamp, or maybe cutting the pins to different heights, but figured it was better to wait than to mess it all up. The good news is that the cheap clamp fits onto the Macronix parts quite well, at least mechanically.

On the X299 Prime Deluxe II one of the two chips is fully visible in the case cutout. So I'll dump that one first and send it along in the hopes that it's the right one of the two.If not I'll take the motherboard out and dump the other one.

We struggled with this for a while. For example, we tried not only multiple versions of Thunderbolt firmware but different modifications on each version. I'll add an appropriate notice in the Thunderbolt Repository.

Although everyone is experiencing the warm-boot issue on add-in-cards only (not on built-on controllers) I don't think everyone is experiencing those kernel panics.

You're welcome to try, but we were not able to solve the warm-boot issue with any of these.

The modified DROMs are based on the original DROM that accompanied each device. The modified GC-Alpine Ridge DROM is therefore based on the original GC-Alpine Ridge DROM.

If your motherboard has a Thunderbolt header (THB_C) then it's highly advisable to use it -- or at least to experiment with it. Such motherboards also provide Thunderbolt configuration parameters in BIOS, and those parameters should be configured properly. If in doubt about those parameters, simply post screenshot(s).

If your motherboard has a DisplayPort output on the rear IO panel, then try connecting that to one of the DP-INs on the GC-Alpine Ridge. Platform ID should be 0x3E9B0007, which I suspect it is already because you're already relying on internal graphics.


Regarding the warm-boot issue, are those having this problem putting a the jumper wire from pins 1 to 3? That was mentioned as being necessary to get it to boot in this video, and also one of the people selling the pre-flashed cards on ebay mentions including a jumper cable.
