USB Port Map
This is my custom USB port map. Feel free to use it or create yours. The internal F_U320G front USB-C port is disabled, because my PC case does not have one. That's why I'm using the normal F_U32 USB 3.0 front header.

System definition
iMacPro1,1 MacPro7,1 with iGPU disabled through WEG.

What works
  • Sleep and Wake (SASMegaRAID.kext disables sleep by default. If you have no SAS controller, remove the kext for sleep and wake to function correctly)
  • USB - Custom USB port mapping
  • Sound is native
  • iMessage
  • The onboard Intel AX210 WiFi+BT card is removed and changed with BCM94360NG. So I have native WiFi and Bluetooth with Handoff and AirDrop
  • Thunderbolt is working thanks to the provided DMAR in the community, but no hot plug. I have tested an Apple Thunderbolt to Ethernet Adapter and it connects on cold boot or restart only. However the hot plug does not work in Windows. I think it is MB firmware issue.

What does NOT work
So far everything is working correctly, no thunderbolt hot plug.

EFI
Full EFI attached. Please use your own platform info. The resource files are removed from the EFI archive.

Issues & Troubleshooting
  • XMP1 Profile works with Gear2 option enabled only.
  • TB4 controller supports USB Hub hot plugging, but hot plugging a TB device seems to has issues (both Windows and macOS)
  • Samsung NVMe SSD drives have problems with the new TRIM handling Apple is doing results in long boot delay. Using Corsair MP600 as boot device seems to fix this issue. I hope Samsung will provide a firmware update ASAP or Apple could fix it with the future updates.
  • I'm experiencing some HDMI Audio glitches and lags when playing audio (YouTube, VLC, Kodi etc.), tested with and without the AppleALC.kext or AppleALCU.kext. Playing audio throught the USB Audio Codec seams to work without any issues. More about this issue and the fix please read this post. The old GPU GB RX580 Gaming is now changed with PowerColor RX 6600 XT Red Devil 8GB.

You could try setting this device ID for your Intel I225-V Ethernet Controller.
Code:
<key>device-id</key>
<data>F2158680</data>

@Rikoshet @root2 the system is fully stable. Currently updated all the kexts and OC 075 (full EFI attached)

@Rikoshet could you please write down your hardware used.

My hardware is in my sig, please take a look.
@Rikoshet you're using 10th Gen i9 and Radeon Vega. First remove the Cpuid1Data and Cpuid1Mask values, apply boot args regarding your GPU (maybe agpmode=pikera, I'm not sure if it's required), delete all the not necessary kexts (SASMegaRAID and maybe CPUFriend, CPUFriendDataProvider). I've another USB 3.0 PCIe card on port RP03, the USB device is PXSX. Please remove the USB port maps from the USBMap.kext file. When all this is done try to boot the system again. If the problem persist and you have another OS already installed (Windows or Linux), please start it and search for the network adapter native id (mine is F3150000).

My system is working properly with the EFI provided and I'm NOT using any hidden patches.
I'm NOT sure about compatibility of your NVMe drive used.

"agpdmode=pikera" is for Navi and Big Navi cards. No boot argument is needed for Vega or Polaris, so that's one problem less for @Rikoshet —who's having too many already.

CPUFriend should not be necessary, as OS X with iMac20 SMBIOS should have suitable power tables for Comet Lake.

The rest of your EFI should not require adjustments… but, out of curiosity, could you explain, or point to relevant documentation, for SSDT-DMAC, -DMAR, -GPRW, -HPET (IRQ conflict), -USBW (+USBWakeFixup.kext)?
