@CaseySJ Are you planning to do a Big Sur with OpenCore update to this unbelievable thread when it comes out? (Yes please please please hoping hoping hoping) I'm still loving this machine big time. As a side note, I got a Samsung T7 and when plugged in to the TB daisy chained off my Raid, it reads and writes >800MB/s.

Sure, I'll create a mini-guide for upgrading from Catalina to Big Sur. Some comments:
  • Most Mojave users are not expected to upgrade to Big Sur for the same reason they have not upgraded to Catalina (i.e. no support for 32-bit apps).
  • The mini-guide will therefore focus on:
    • Upgrading from Catalina to Big Sur
    • OpenCore only
    • Must use BIOS F9g or higher with CFG-Lock disabled in the Boot section of BIOS Setup

Hello @fpazcas,

The System Information --> PCI screenshot actually looks correct. When we connect Thunderbolt devices to the system, macOS automatically generates PCI name, description, and slot information. We can override the default values by creating Device Properties, but we should not do this for devices that are not permanently connected.

So in other words, the "PCI" screen is just informational, but not functional. As long as it says that the drivers for Thunderbolt devices are loaded, there is nothing to worry about.
Is it normal that it sometimes does not detect the device at startup? My device is UAD Apollo x6 (TB3 Adapter to TB2 Cable to TB3 Adapter)

I've upgraded to Catalina beta (11.0.1) by just using the Apple Installation File (I have developer access) on my Designaire i9900K with no problems. I did so at 061. I'm currently using OC 063. Here's my EFI folder with config.plist. I've removed my SSID/Serial#/etc, so make sure to add yours back in.

UPDATE:

To install Big Sur...
  • Catalina users should switch to OpenCore if they have not done so already.
  • Catalina users should upgrade to OpenCore 0.6.3 from this mini-guide.
  • Please ensure that OpenCore Configurator --> Misc --> Security --> SecureBootModel is set to Disabled (not Default).
  • Catalina users should make a full bootable backup of Catalina and test the backup.
  • Catalina users can then perform an in-place upgrade to Big Sur from System Preferences --> Software Update.

Please try BIOS Setup --> Thunderbolt --> Thunderbolt Boot Support --> Boot Once.

That is not a simple SSDT. It cannot be used on other systems. Please describe what problem you’re trying to fix.
  • kPowerStateSuspended increasing value after boot, XHC2 is operating (my current SSDT)
  • kPowerStateOff increasing value after boot, XHC2 is operating only after Sleep/Wake.
I have problem. kPowerStateOff (99%) and not working XHC Controller on Thunderbolt.

Attached is the firmware dumped from HP Thunderbolt PCIE Add-in-card.
Thank you very much.

I haven't tried flashing the modified firmware of Asrock Z490 itx/tb3 to my HP PCIE Add-in-card, I found they have different IO name (HP-15E8/Asrock-15E7).

I try to use SSDT with changed IO path RP09 to active the HP TB3 Add-in-card, the Thunderbolt says that no drivers are loaded, please find the attached IO registry below.

BIOS setting:Thunderbolt Security - No Security
Please try the attached firmware for the HP Thunderbolt 3 add-in-card. Then check if Thunderbolt Bus appears in System Information --> Thunderbolt.

You are the Man Casey! That's perfect and other than the BIOS upgrade, which I will do, fits my needs. I waited s bit for Catalina and then did full upgrade following your fantastic guide. OpenCore looks like it is the future anyway so, there you go.

This is perfectly normal. It allows the Mac to connect to the network through the iPhone or iPad when these iOS devices are connected via USB cable.
Ok good. I was hoping how those got added. I also saw a bunch of additional en# devices there also in the System Perferences->Network. My thinking was that some change/file..... that added the idevices also add the additional en# devices

My wired network connection kept freezing the system with any en0 activity. I removed the bogus devices with "-" in System Perferences->Network. Now the two onboard Lans are remaining (i211 is not connected) and the third being a 10G card that I removed. Removing the 10G had no affect, but removing the bogus en# devices did. It appears to have resolved the freeze issue. How would the additional en# devices get there.
