@Inqnuam, do you also see the green dots for built-in Ethernet ports and Fenvi WiFi (not Thunderbolt Ethernet)?
Of course sir!

This is wonderful. Now you have:
  • A1 = 8GB
  • B1 = 8GB
  • A2 = 4GB
Do you have another 4GB module in order to test this configuration?
  • A1 = 8GB
  • B1 = 8GB
  • A2 = 4GB
  • B2 = 4GB
Was it necessary to down-clock the memory to 2666MHz?

Unfortunately I don't
Will try to buy one on Monday at a local tech store

The 4GB memory I found is 2666MHz, BIOS? down-locked them all to 2666Mhz,
Didn't checked yet if my custom confi XMP Profile 1 is still enabled or not
Will check that right now

EDIT:
Yes XMP Profile 1 is now disabled

** Experiment Update #3 **
AppleVTD Side-Effects and Mitigation Strategies


Current Situation:
To extend Thunderbolt compatibility to Antelope Audio, Apple TB-to-Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, and some other devices, we have found that enabling VT-d is the key.

This can be done on any Intel-based Hackintosh and does not require any special or modified BIOS. To enable VT-d, we need to do the following:
  • Enable VT-d in BIOS
  • In OpenCore config.plist, uncheck DisableIoMapper (in the Kernel Quirks section)
  • In OpenCore config.plist, remove "dart=0" from Boot-Args if present (in the NVRAM section)
  • After rebooting, run IORegistryExplorer to see whether a new device named AppleVTD appears near the top of the list. This confirms that VT-d is enabled.

@CaseySJ Just wanted to report that X299 Gaming 7 the built in ethernet stopped working. Any suggestions on what to try?

Update on Gigabyte Z490 Vision D:

With one 16GB DIMM (in A2) there are no side-effects with AppleVTD. Everything works.

These configurations were also tested, but they result in WiFi and Ethernet not connecting:
  • 16GB by 2
  • 16GB by 3
  • 16GB by 4
  • 16GB by 2 and 8GB by 2

As you can see, the number and capacity of memory DIMMs make a difference.
  • How many DIMMs are installed currently?
  • And what is the capacity of each one?
  • You have an Intel HEDT system (X299), which version of macOS are you running?
  • And which of the two Ethernet ports fails?
  • Please post a screenshot of System Information --> Ethernet Cards with both cards selected (as you can see in my screenshot directly above)

Yep both ports work. The ASUS Sage/10G has a Intel X550-AT2 so I modified the EEPROM to work with SmallTree drivers

SMBIOS: MacPro7,1

BIOS changes: None - Can't seem to find VT-D in the ASUS X299 BIOS
config.plist changes: DisableIoMapper (false)
  • AppleVTD Enabled
  • DMAC
  • 4 DIMMS (4 x 16GB @ 3200)
  • Broadcom BCM943602CDP (Wifi + Bluetooth work)
  • Both onboard Ethernet ports work - Intel X550-AT2 with SmallTree8259x.kext
  • No Thunderbolt card (Will be getting a Titan Ridge to flash)
On my Asus X99 Deluxe II, VT-D is located here:
  • Advanced → System Agent Configuration → Intel VT for Directed I/O (VT-d)
