Well, the display is actually Thunderbolt2 and I'm using it via Apple Thunderbolt3->Thunderbolt2 adapter (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MMEL2AM/A/thunderbolt-3-usb-c-to-thunderbolt-2-adapter). When it works, it's rock solid... But it might take a few reboots until it's recognized. Looks like there's some race condition during the boot process.The Apple Thunderbolt Display is a very problematic device on Hackintosh. Most people are content with using it only as a monitor and not worrying about the on-board devices. Unfortunately we are not aware of any solution to the problems you described. Because that monitor is a Thunderbolt 1 device, it presents extra problems on a Hackintosh. So for this specific monitor it is better to either (a) use the monitor as a display devices only or (b) try connecting it through a Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD. Option (b) is a bit pricey, however.
As mentioned yesterday, in nearly all cases the problems we see with Thunderbolt behavior are what they are. Some devices and some motherboards do not work together as reliably as others.
