Yes that's the right one (official F9i).When you suggest updating with the BIOS version F9i do you mean the "official" one?
I downloaded the F9i version from Softpedia:
and compared its SHA-1 /256/384/512 signature with those of the file You linked in Your "Quick Reference to Mini-Guides and Micro-Guides": they coincide so I can think they are both verified files?

Yes it's compatible with iMac19,1.Please, i have two questions:
Is the use of the OpenIntelWireless Driver (and therefore of the SSDT-UIAC-DESIGNARE-Z390-V7D.aml) compatible with the use of iMac 19.1 sysdef?
Yes this can be used with OpenCore and Catalina/Big Sur. It's best to use Broadcom WiFi/BT instead of Intel. There are still several issues with the OpenIntelWireless drivers so I cannot recommend them for day-to-day use.When I made the first installation of macOS mojave by following your Guide you provided me with the SSDT-UIAC-DESIGNATE-Z390-FD-DEFINE-C-TG.aml file (which I attach to this post). Do you think it can still be used with OpenCore and Catalina/Big Sur?
Just enabled Intel Platform Trust Technology in BIOS F9i (w/latest microcode update from Elias). No problem booting macOS. Will go back into BIOS now to see whether PTT is still enabled.Not to be a bother but did you have a chance to try activating PTT @CaseySJ? I tried resetting CMOS and enabling PTT before touching any bios settings but it still comes back disabled. Wondering if there could be a problem with my 9900K, or if it's somehow still related to my bios screwup (seems a bit unlikely as I flashed the full chip using your bios).
Careful, that exercise stuff can kill you. I used to do a minimum 5 miles a day with 80lbs of gear back in the 80’s and 90’s when I was with the Corps. Now my knees and back are a mess.
It's a different equation when the only two things you're carrying are an iPhone and a latté! No stress on the spine.Careful, that exercise stuff can kill you.

AppleVTD Side-Effects and Mitigation Strategies
You stated that with AppleVTD enabled, WiFi and Ethernet do not work with G.Skill Ripjaws 4x32GB memory. If you go to System Information --> Memory, you'll see the part number. Can you please post that?G.Skill Ripjaws V 128GB (4x32GB) DDR4-3200. I'm using 2 DIMMs, the other 2 have been in my z590 since I built it, but it was sold as a 4x32GB kit.
0xEA Intel Micro Code for z390 Aorus Master. This is F11o modded version (also latest drivers inside). Should be installed using efiflash: efiflash.exe "name of file" /X** Custom BIOS F9i with Latest Intel Micro Code, 0xEA **
Please install BIOS F9i OFFICIAL version before installing this one
If you are already running BIOS F9i, then you may install the new BIOS directly
Elias has done it again! He has inserted the latest Intel Coffee Lake microcode from Apple's most recent firmware update (part of Big Sur 11.4) into the Gigabyte Z390 Designare F9i BIOS. The latest microcode is version 0xEA and applies to the CPUID 0906 family of 8th and 9th generation Intel Core processors.
Even though the new microcode was released with Big Sur 11.4, it applies to the Intel processor itself and not to any particular operating system. All versions of macOS, Windows, Linux, etc. are compatible.
The resulting file is called Z390DESI_modMC_01052021_0906_Rev_0xEA.F9i, and it's attached below.
As always, the decision to use or not use this BIOS is up to you. It is entirely optional. I have tested the new BIOS for half a day now with no issues.
