Hello @CaseySJ
we eventualy gave a try with High Sierra, but it didn't work out. :banghead:
The hackintosh's behaviour remains exactly the same.
Probably my friend (the real hardworker :rolleyes:) will join the this thread to go deeper into details, in case you feel interested in solving Antelope's compatibility... however, thank you for the suggestion (!)...
it seems such a complex matter.

P.S.:
I hope I'm not redundant if, just for convenience, I publish again the files. :)
I would be glad to help you troubleshoot this on High Sierra. Some basics:
  • Which motherboard is your friend using?
  • Which version of High Sierra is installed on that system?
  • What is the exact model name of the Antelope Audio device?
  • If the motherboard does not have a Thunderbolt controller built in, then which Thunderbolt add-in-card is being used?
  • Has the Thunderbolt controller been flashed? (Hopefully not...)
  • With the Antelope Audio device connected and powered on, please have your friend run IORegistryExplorer then select File --> Save As..., and post the IOReg file.

Hello @CaseySJ

I upgraded to F9j, could some mouse freezes be related to this new firmware?

Another question the OC 0.66 did you provide?

Thank you

Please list the make and model of each NVMe and SATA SSD in your system.

If you have Samsung EVO drives it may be necessary to use OpenCore 0.6.5 for the time being.
Hi @CaseySJ I am indeed using Samsung SSD 970 EVO 1TB

Let's try OpenCore 0.6.5 first (click here for ZIP) because of some teething issues being reported with 0.6.6. Simply copy your serial numbers into the 0.6.5 config.plist (choose config-AMD-GPU.plist).

If OpenCore Picker still fails to appear, please let me know.

At this time we should avoid F9j and instead use F9i, which can be downloaded from the link in Quick Reference spoiler as shown. As for OpenCore 0.6.6 please also see Quick Reference spoiler.

This has just been added to the Repository. Testing needed...


@CaseySJ I've been doing some testing on this .aml (attached) , and I think I found a few things, but I'm not 100% of what I'm doing.

  • DTGP external method being called. Is this supposed to be "PG" or "GP" ? Is this related KGP's SSDT-DTPG.aml (attached)?
  • DSB3 device is missing (image 4)
  • DSB1 Device missing _DSM method (image 4)
  • DSB4 not "PCIHotplugCapable," like all the others. Has "PCI-Thunderbolt" instead?
  • Is it possible to reduce the code down to two devices: DSB0 to handle TB (via NHI), and DSB1 to handle USB (via XHC2), or am I totally off-track?

To answer your questions:
  • There is an inconsistency between the file name and the method name, but that is fine. It's just a typo probably made by KGP that has stuck ever since. It's completely benign and can be ignored.
    • File name: SSDT-DTGP.aml
    • Method name: DTPG
  • DSB0 (DownStream Bridge 0) is where the Thunderbolt Native Host Interface (NHI) attaches.
  • DSB1 (DownStream Bridge 1) is where Thunderbolt devices connect when you plug them in to Port 1.
  • DSB2 (DownStream Bridge 2) is where the Thunderbolt USB Controller (XHC) attaches to manage USB devices connected to Ports 1 and 2.
  • DSB4 (DownStream Bridge 4) is where Thunderbolt devices connect when you plug them into Port 2.
    • There is no DSB3.
  • It's okay for DSB1 to omit _DSM method.
  • PCI-Thunderbolt property is technically needed by UPSB only (UpStream Bridge).
  • PCIHotplugCapable property is technically needed by DSB0 only.

Ok, thanks. Quick question to make sure I followed the config.plist process correctly. I used the hackingDROM portal to convert my Clover config.plist file to a new OC plist file. (I had to mount my EFI, choose config.plist file, selected the system information, then moved the new file to the USB). I kept the file name to config.plist. You mentioned above to had the Serial Numbers to config-AMD-GPU.plist. Should I have called by new file converted by hackingDROM to config.plist or config-AMD-GPU.plist? Does it matter?

You did it correctly. Namely:
  • Open HackinDROM website, select Copy Config, and choose your Clover config.plist.
  • From the drop-down menu, choose Z390 Designare OC 065 AMD GPU - Casey SJ.
  • Click the COPY button followed by the disk icon.
  • A new config.plist will be downloaded.
  • Copy this file to the OpenCore 0.6.5 OC folder. The name must remain the same: config.plist
