@CaseySJ how you doing my friend, first of all, thanks again for everything you do for the community. I just want to say that you had helped me before and once again I'm in the need of your expertise, lol, sorry about that.

I have done this exact setup before but for some reason it won't work on this one :banghead:

z390 Designare + 9900k + Nvidia 710
I have all my usb mapped
usb-c work fine, however, I have a Thunderbolt device plug in and it doesn't want to recognize it :banghead:

can you take a look to my EFI and the IO Reg please. I have a feeling that is something small, but I don't get to find it. Thanks

Hello @Perdomo15,

Sure, let’s see if we can tackle this problem. Some questions/comments:
  • Which version of macOS are you running?
  • What is the make/model of the Thunderbolt device?
  • In BIOS Setup —> Thunderbolt, try setting Thunderbolt Boot Support to Boot Once.
  • Which version of BIOS is installed?
  • When did this problem first occur?

Big Sur 11.6.7
UAD Apollo FireWire Silver Rack With Thunderbolt 2 Option Card
Bios F9J
This is my first time trying this setup.
UPDATE: It does recognize my Apollo Twin Thunderbolt 2 but not the rack.

I AM USING Apple USB-C to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (TB3 to TB2)

If you look at the top of Post 1 just under the photo, you’ll see that BIOS F9j is not recommended due to issues with Thunderbolt. It’s better to install BIOS F9g or F9i, both of which are available from a link in Section 1 of the spoiler labeled Quick Reference to Mini-Guides and Micro-Guides (also near the top of Post 1). Just let me know if you have any question about these BIOS files.

So yeah, the system is everything I wrote before but with BIOS F9I.

Sorry for the confusion.

No problem. Some questions/comments:
  1. Did the Apollo FireWire Silver work previously with this Hackintosh?
  2. I see that AppleVTD is properly enabled, so that is one factor we can dismiss. Thunderbolt SSDT is also set up correctly.
  3. Does the Apollo FireWire Silver work when connected and powered up before booting macOS?
  4. Is Thunderbolt Boot Support set to Boot Once in BIOS?

Yes i change it to Boot Once also, no this is my first time trying it on this built. However, i know is not big sur because i have use it on my Mac Pro 5,1 with open core as well, also on a 2019 macbook pro.

What’s is funny is that the Apollo Twin works like a charm.
