I am trying to get hot plug working on a Z170x-UD5-TH setup. Where am I supposed to add this huge rename? If I try to add this to the add tab of the ACPI part of OCauxiliarytools, it doesn't work. Any ideas?
@canyondust?
PlistEditPro may help

Looks rather daunting. Where would I add the find: replace: stuff? As a child? Sibling?
not really, just copy and paste another Find and Replace and then copy and paste new info

Done. TB hot swap seems to work now, but there's a problem when sleeping or waking from sleep. Anyway, I've made some good progress. Time for more backups...

Simply use OpenCore Configurator (OCC). Each version of this supports two specific versions of OpenCore so it’s necessary to use the right version. The title bar of OCC states the version being supported.

This ACPI patch simply goes into the ACPI —> Patch section of OCC.

Thanks, I used PlistEditPro. Don't like OCC. Much prefer OCAuxiliaryTools, but big find/replace operations are not its strong point.

You're awesome :)
I've attached the file

All 19 tables, including the slot 2 disabler, loaded properly. The plot thickens. Will need to run some experiments on my test bench…
@yabusa,

After a little experimentation on my Z390 Designare with two AMD GPUs (RX580 in slot 1 and RX 5700 XT in slot 2), I was able to disable the RX 5700 XT (slot 2) with the attached SSDT.

Filename: SSDT-Disable-AMD-GPU-Slot-2.aml

Please give this a try.

CAUTION: Please monitor backplate temperature of the 'disabled' GPU with a temperature probe or thermal imaging probe. The card may remain powered although a driver won't attach to it. Periodically check to see if the disabled GPU's fans spin up to maintain a safe temperature.

Slot 1 and slot 2 versions of this SSDT are also posted here:

I gave the file a shot, but still no luck
My steps were:
- Add the .aml file to the ACPI folder
- Open config.plist with propertree
- Cmd + R to OC snapshot
- Saved and restarted

I found something interesting in hackindrom. The WX was listed twice
