This might be a Hackintool issue. The definitive place to look is in IORegistryExplorer under XHC and XHC5. If in double, simply run IORegistryExplorer followed by File --> Save As... and post the saved file.

Yeah I couldn't find XHC5. I do have a cal digit dock plugged in.

Very good. Your Thunderbolt is properly configured.

If you disconnect the Thermaltake fan from the USB port, does it solve the problem?
I think its because of the thunderbold cable my imac remains open so it must have power in the cable and is plugged into my designare its maybe for that it wakes up its the same but I changed to a displayport screen and remove my thunderbold and it doesn't do it anymore just when I put it to standby this can cause my fans to plug it into the internal usb port that when I put the computer to sleep it turns on by itself and I couldn't read any video on netflix its u cause quw jai imac 19.1

Hi All, first post, greetings!!

I'm wondering if some kind soul could offer me a bit of guidance?

I'm a total noob having previously never built a pc or tried hackintosh by any method. I enjoyed the build process and it went smoothly, other than installing the massive noctua cooler first and then not having any room to plug things in...! Before I found this thread I tried doing an install following the dortania step-by-step opencore guide. This went well in that it booted right up, but thunderbolt is not working, plus reading through some of this thread I can see that Casey's guide and EFI have a lot of benefits and seems to offer the best possible end result.

I didn't do any of the post-install stuff yet. I'd like to start fresh with Casey's EFI and would like to know the correct steps to do this.

Do I need to re-install Mojave on my boot drive as part of the process, of if I completely wipe the EFI folder contents is that sufficient?

My Bios is F8 - should I upgrade it? And if so is there a preferred version - or just the latest available?

My understanding is I can use my current install to run the opencore configurator to generate the serial and other data I need to fill out the plist info on the USB stick EFI? And then I can just follow the guide?

Is there a preferred version of opencore I should use with a Mojave install?

Thanks!!!

Hello and welcome,
Please start by updating your BIOS to F9g (Beta, CFG-lock disabled by default and that's cool) or F9i (official release, CFG-Lock is enabled by default, if your are planning to update to Catalina you'll need to disable it from Bios).

Then follow this guide.
You can follow this guide to generate your OpenCore config.plist.

I checked your IOReg and screenshots. Everything looks fine in terms of system configuration. Thunderbolt is properly set up. Even Thunderbolt Switch at port 7 is enabled.

All Z390 Designares have the same original firmware. The "scratch" areas of the firmware will be different, but they have no effect. So you can flash anyone's original Designare Z390 firmware.
Cool , i will restore back and take a look if everything goes.
Thanks.



One More thing,

I don't know if you remind me, i have some hackintosh and i have helped in the possible developing of a driver for Antelope who support Hackintosh thunderbolt.

I had read somewhere in the forum ,that old Z170 Mobos with internal TH and Sierra could work with antelope thunderbolt.
So, i had searched in second hand webs to find an Asus Thunderbolt EX II card. Just to test.

I had plugged it (without cable because is different) in a Gigabyte Z390 Extreme Mobo with an i9 9900K, and Interface was recogniced fine in Antelope pannel with all remote control functions and appears in audio panel ("Antelope Zen Tour")

After updated Thunderbolt Antelope Driver and Antelope Control Panel, everything to latest version, not recognize it anymore.

Is there anyway to flash this "Thunderbolt 2 Asus"?

If i can help to provide anything, will be really interesting, because Antelope is finally not interested in solve the Hackintosh issues with their interfaces...
Maybe we could try something now that we know that with Asus Thunderbolt EX II work (more or less).

Regards.

hi! thanks @yosoyoco, so that means, you are using the apollo with the alpine ridge but disabled hotplug in the SSDT?

i patched my alpine ridge with this rom: 3. GC-ALPINE-RIDGE-NVM21-V3-NATA.bin and
jumped pins 1 and 3 (not 3 and 5) instead of connecting to THB_C header.
( i didn't t try the other 2 mods from @Elias64Fr yet, see list below ) and i think! i created a SSDT via http://hackindrom.zapto.org/ (only changed the root adresses for my board z370 gigabyte).


what i get is: a kernel panic on first boot, which i a bit annoying) BUT all is working so far pretty well with my system ( apollo 8x tb3 -> quad satellite + internal uad quad ), incl. hotplug on second boot (warm boot). there is room for improvement - especially i'd like to get rid of the kernel panic and the need to boot 2 times but it's not too important atm.

Gigabyte GC-Alpine Ridge add-in-card 1. GC-ALPINE RIDGE-NVM20-V1-Elias64Fr.bin
2. GC-ALPINE RIDGE-NVM20-V2-Elias64Fr.bin
3. GC-ALPINE-RIDGE-NVM21-V3-NATA.bin
PCIe card
Some issues were reported with
V1 and V2. Try V3 by @NorthAmTransAm.
May need to jump pins 3 and 5 instead
of connecting to THB_C header.

Do you mind attaching a pic of jumping pins 1 and 3?
So many confusing info.. and not so many pictures to clarify.. its all about point of view :)

Thanks!

hold the TB card so that the PCI-e connector is facing the floor. then pin 1 is the topmost of the 5 pins and pin 3 is the middle pin.
