@CaseySJ

A bit offtopic, I saw your post about your new MacBook Pro with Ice Lake processor here. I have Ice Lake laptop with TB3 port, But I am not sure if it's working correctly or how to patch it.

I have my settings in BIOS unlocked, and I can change many settings of the Thunderbolt controller, but it's still don't appear under "System report" info. Do you have any ideas about that?

I will attach my dump here from TBT chip

Hi @CaseySJ

I managed to install Linux on a USB stick.
As you mentioned how to proceed from Ubuntu.

Thanks.
Very good. Please see the post below and perform the steps in the “Code” section. If you need any help just let me know.

That’s what happens when you’re buying coffee and typing at the same time! :) Link added to original post.
Sorry casey,
I'm a noob in Linux.
I booted from OpenCore picker to Unbuntu.
Then I selected "try Unbuntu".
Type in Terminal the codes.

With my Alpine Ridge card, I have had better luck with the V1 and V2 firmware (by Elias) than with the V3 (NATA). I saw the caution about reported problems. But, if it were me, I would try both V1 and V2.
Thank you. I'll try it and will come back. Just a little doubt. Do you know if I need to make the DROM again after reflashing?

Thanks @vipermachine. That's part of it. It seems that script did not capture the Thunderbolt DROM so let's do that manually as described in this post:

It should be sufficient to type this in Linux Terminal window:
Bash:
dd if=/sys/bus/thunderbolt/devices/0-0/nvm_active0/nvmem of=~/Documents/TB3-Controller-0-Fw.bin bs=4096 count=256
This will generate a file in the Documents folder called TB3-Controller-0-Fw.bin. Please zip and post that file.

Hello @b0ltun,

In System Information --> Thunderbolt we will see No drivers are loaded as long as Thunderbolt Bus is not activated. Fortunately we can safely ignore this. Simply connect your Thunderbolt device prior to boot and see if it works. It should appear in IORegistryExplorer.

We can download IORegistryExplorer from here. If you select File --> Save As... and post the saved file, we can take a closer look.
