** Thunderbolt Bus and Local Node Activation...
on Asus ThunderboltEX 3 Alpine Ridge Card by Software Only **
Please do not quote this post in its entirety. Post a link instead.
Do you think it is possible to software-enable (i.e. without flashing) the Thunderbolt Bus and Local Node for the Asus ThunderboltEX 3 Alpine Ridge card, but when installed into an Asus Prime Z370A motherboard vs. the Asus X99? The Asus Prime Z370A motherboard also supports the Thunderbolt header cable supplied with the Asus ThunderboltEX 3 card. I currently have the card installed (with cable) and it is working partially via an SSDT patch, but unfortunately the Thunderbolt bus and local node are not activated - i.e. I see "Thunderbolt: No drivers are loaded" under System Information. I have included my DSDT.aml file for the Prime Z370A in case you see a way to achieve the same software-only success as with the X99. Perhaps this has already been solved, but I could not find it. Apologies in advance if you have already posted a solution for this combination of card and motherboard. FYI - looking at my IO registry, the ThunderboltEX 3 card is located at root port 21 (RP21).
