With apologies to @archalys... ;)

Not enough information. Remember always:
  • We cannot read your mind.
  • We don't see what you see because we are not there with you.
  • We don't know what type of equipment you're using.
  • We don't know which operating system you're running.
  • We don't know which version of OpenCore or Clover you're using.
  • We don't know whether this was a problem in the past.
  • We don't know what changed between the time SATA hot plug worked and now.
Like I said, not enough information.
Sorry Casey. I posted before but that's obviously long forgotten. I've done pretty much everything this threat is suggesting. And on Catalina the HotPlug was working fine. It's just since I switched to Big Sur and OC that it's not working anymore. I activated the fix in the Editor but it's not showing any effect.

Please try this:
  • Change Count from 0 to 1 as shown.
  • Double check that SATA Hot Plug is enabled in BIOS for the correct SATA ports.
  • Then please ensure that you are booting from the correct EFI partition (if you have more than one disk with OpenCore on it).

@CaseySJ See Responses below:

Running Catalina

Using a Broadcom BCM94360CD wifi card
Screenshot of Extensions folder attached.
Remind me please if Clover can boot the exact same disk that you are trying to boot using OpenCore.

Confirmed. Booted up right now.
I'd like to compare the Clover and OpenCore folders to see if there's a clue to be found. If you can make a copy of both folders, remove serial numbers from each config.plist, compress and post the zip, I'll take a closer look.

I have tried some UFEI FW´s for my Z620, without success.
But I don't think that this problem is related to some similar of the 9j FW.
HP has not updated the FW for modern AMG Graphics e.g. resizable BAR.
And there are even no Intel hot fixes of 2020.

It look like, the USB-C Ports cannot be set in the right state because of something is missing or have to patch via DSDT/SSDT. But I have no idea what. See picture.

By the way: If I use the original Firewire FW, the card will not recognized by MacOS.

We have had this problem with NVM50 on Z490 Vision D since the beginning. No solution has been found. Have you tried this one?
  • DESIGNARE-Z390-NVM33-Elias64Fr.bin

With original firmware, please disable the Thunderbolt SSDT, boot macOS and run IORegistryExplorer --> File --> Save As... and post the IOReg file.

MacOS will scan the PCI bus and will discover all devices even without SSDT. By looking at this new IOReg file we can see exactly what macOS has detected.

Yes, I have tried the DESIGNARE-Z390-NVM33-Elias64Fr.bin, the same error.

With the original FW, there is nothing. Not in IOReg, not in the PCI list of Hackintool. The Card is not present, I have tried it twice with reflash. With DSDT and without, with Jumper between 1-3 and 1-4 and without.
Like the USB-C Controller if I reboot, just gone.


Edit: Wait, I have flash only the blue Chip, is this correct?
Because on my cMP5.1 this Card is working but I have to flash both chips.
I don't know, what FW is on the green one, maybe NVM50.

OkIt's super strange I ran into once during Catalina Betas. I'm going to try a fresh install tonight to see if that does it, maybe some old kext conflicts or something. Just glad to know it's just me so it can be fixed.
Okay Ok so interestingly enough. Safe boot seems to cure the freezing?
