SSP1 and SSP2 are still missing.
  • Which version of macOS are you running?
  • Please compress and post the OC/ACPI folder from your EFI partition.
  • Have you tried going back to F9i or F9g? If not, let's wait a little before doing that.
Big Sur 11.1
Have not tried going back on BIOS


used this:


Press F2 to toggle to Advanced Mode.
Press F7 to Load Optimized Defaults.
Disable cfg lock
Now make the following settings:
Tweaker
Advanced CPU Settings → VT-d → Disabled
Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.) → Profile 1
Settings
Internal Graphics → Enabled
Above 4G Decoding → Enabled
Thunderbolt(TM) Configuration
Security Level → No Security
This will trigger a 'Save & Exit' dialog so press ESC to close the dialog.
Discrete Thunderbolt(TM) Configuration
Thunderbolt USB Support → Enabled
GPIO3 Force Pwr → Enabled
USB Configuration
XHCI Handoff → Enabled
Boot
Windows 8/10
CSM Support → Disabled
Some devices such as GPUs may require CSM Support to be enabled. There is no harm in setting this to either Enabled or Disabled. Use the setting that works best.
Save & Exit → Save Profiles → Save to Profile 1
This preserves the firmware settings for easy recall

First, please check if Resizable BAR (Base Address Register) is Disabled in BIOS F9j.


There are two Thunderbolt SSDTs in the OpenCore 0.6.5 ACPI folder. By default we have enabled SSDT-TB3-HackinDROM.aml and disabled the old one, SSDT-Z390-DESIGNARE-TB3HP-V4.aml.
  • Is your config.plist configured like this?

  • If so, try disabling the new one (SSDT-TB3-HackinDROM.aml) and enable the old one.
  • Reboot and see if SSP1 and SSP2 appear under RP05 as was shown in my earlier reply.
If you still don't see SSP1 and SSP2, it may be necessary to install BIOS F9i to see if this is a BIOS-related problem. The earlier BIOS F9g is located here:

Please switch back to the HackinDROM SSDT instead and revert to previous BIOS version.

At what point does the boot process stop? Does it stop right where your screenshot was taken?
Yes. I reset the BIOS settings again to give it another kick and it got a few more lines further. It seems to have settled at the spot in this screen shot. That last line can vary, but it's always the line after "bridges 7, device 14 ]"

What are the makes/models of all NVMe SSDs in the system?

I just installed BIOS F9j on my Z390 Designare Test Bench and sure enough SSP1 and SSP2 are missing even with a flashed controller. Therefore all users are advised to avoid BIOS F9j if you need to connect USB 3.x devices to the rear Thunderbolt ports. Thunderbolt devices will still work.

I can confirm Thubnderbolt Devices are still working with F9j
Thank you for the troubleshooting
Not a way to add/map SSP1 and SSP2 with SSDT?

Could you please upload Bios F9i to the forum for those who flashed F9j and want to go to back to F9i?
F9g is still available but its a Beta version, would be nice to have an official release here!

Just found on my iCloud.
