I am going to install that one shortly. Is it possible for you to share your EMI folder? I assume you are using OpenCore
It's already shared. Please see spoiler at the top of Post 1 labeled Quick Reference to Mini-Guides and Micro-Guides. In Section 1 of that you'll find a list of OpenCore releases.

Hi there, I'm having issues with the TB3 bus activation. The mobo is a Z390 Designare with BIOS F9I. Is it reported to be working? Eventually what should I do? I flashed the TB3 card using the TBTFlash.exe tool with the NVM67-CASEYSJ.bin firmware

That is an old version so it's a good idea to try BIOS F9g from here:
In this version, CFG-Lock is already disabled by default. But please remember to configure the rest of BIOS parameters based on this:
  • Press F2 to toggle to Advanced Mode.
  • Press F7 to Load Optimized Defaults.
Now make the following settings:
  • Tweaker
    • Advanced CPU Settings → VT-d → Enabled
    • Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.) → Profile 1
  • Settings
    • Internal Graphics → Enabled
    • Above 4G Decoding → Enabled
    • Thunderbolt(TM) Configuration
      • Security Level → No Security
        This will trigger a 'Save & Exit' dialog so press ESC to close the dialog.
      • Discrete Thunderbolt(TM) Configuration
        • Thunderbolt USB Support → Enabled
        • GPIO3 Force Pwr → Enabled
    • USB Configuration
      • XHCI Handoff → Enabled
  • Boot
    • Windows 8/10 Features → Other OS
    • CSM Support → Disabled
CaseySJ, you are the Master!

After upgrading the BIOS, as you said CFG-Lock is disabled with BIOS settings (except I couldn't do CSM Support → Disabled) and worked brilliantly. Now the Bluetooth automatically worked and related AirDrop, etc.

I tried a few times and I figured CSM Support - Disabled my system did not boot up, I tried 2 times and I had to do CMOS reset. So I leave it Enabled, I don't know what would affect leaving it enabled.

To keep track and let others know My CSM Support Enabled settings like this:
  • LAN PXE Boot Option ROM - Enabled
  • Storage Boot Option Control - UEFI
  • Other PCI devices - UEFI
Thank you again and this thread is awesome.

Hello, can you please describe how you flashed the Thunderbolt firmware? We need to use an external CH341a SPI flash ROM reader/writer. I believe TBTFlash.exe is a Windows application, but that app cannot flash a modified firmware.

Well to be fair TBTFlash.exe asked for the custom firmware, so I simply uploaded the modified firmware and it flashed the fw. Don't know if anything else is required

I wanna point out that I repeated the same procedure with a original Titan Ridge 2.0 card and the flash worked, therefore I have no idea on why it doesn't work this time... I think the F9I BIOS is the culprit. Eventually what's the BIOS version I should flash to make the TB3 work?

Please run IORegistryExplorer, scroll (not search) down to RP05, and post a screenshot. That will give us a good sense of what happened.
