@pastrychef, yeah, the only port that doesn't seem to want to work on macOS is the 3.1 G2 port on the back middle next to the type-c. I thought maybe it was like even, during the port mapping process, it would never see anything either USB 3 or USB 2. Not a big deal I don't think Apple supports 3.1 G2 anyway do they?

USB 3.1 Gen 2 is supported. I recommend using Hackintool to assist with the configuration. Try using the guide below:

It was a lot easier with older chipsets that had USB 3.1 gen 2 on a separate controller. We didn't have to configure anything and they just worked. On Z390, we definitely have to configure them and they count towards the 15 port limit...

Hey people,
I ran into a problem I can't really wrap my head around. I've build my system based on this guide more then a year ago. Everything worked fine, but 2 days ago, from one day to the next, it didn't boot anymore.
No updates or whatsoever happend, nothing was changed, no new components.
I got this error everytime: Error allocating 0x1196d pages at 0x000... and so on.
I went into the BIOS and played around with the settings, turns out, the thing that is causing this crash is setting Internal Graphics from "Auto" to "Enabled".

So, 2 questions:
1. what exactly does enabling the internal graphics do for me? I thought it has something to do with the preview function, but this still works.
2. Any ideas what the heck happened? I mean, literally nothing changed in the system, software and hardware wise.

Best regards and thanks: )

Sorry, I just realized, this is the wrong thread.

IGPU can act as a co-processor for some apps such as FCPX. Specifically, it uses Quick Sync to assist with video encoding/decoding.

You should fix NVRAM. For instructions, please see my Z390 M Gaming build thread. Link is below in my signature.

I have the same motherboard as you, can I use the SSDT-USB.aml file you uploaded and put it in clover/acpi/patched to fix USB causing sleep issues on my hack?

I don't know much about making SSDTs.


Edit: I used it and it worked

Hi @jbarnette I'm building a very similar machine of yours second build "Z390M Gaming board, i9-9900KF and 5700XT 8GB Sapphire PULSE graphics card". In my case, I'm building with the 9600KF.

Could you make this second project work? Could you share the files for this config?
Because I'm trying and couldn't make it yet. I tried using OpenCore and Cover. But my Ethernet port is not recognizing Internet, and neither the graphics card and boots veery slow..

yeah I can upload my EFI when I get back in town.

Been a while since I checked on this thread but with Big Sur release coming, wanted to see if you by chance are still on Clover or have u switched to OpenCore on this build, I'm looking to migrate my clover EFI to open core but not sure exactly how to do so. Open Core supports booting of Big Sur, rather just migrate the EFI if possible without doing a complete reinstall on 2 machines.

After some digging I could make my build (9600KF, RX5700XT, Giga M Gaming) running OK with everything working, including iMessage and all services.

There is just one thing that is kinda bothering me every time when it boots, it shows a message "parse error type 2 'ROM'' something like this, but it just vanish and the PC starts normally.
I am not sure if it will give me some problem eventually of if I did something wrong, but it seems to me that it has to do with the ROM entry on the configplist. I am sure I put the MAC address from the ethernet adapter but it somehow is not being accepted i guess....
Did someone have this problem too?
