It can get frustrating to map ports but this guide using hackintool makes it easy and it will work. The case can’t add any ports your motherboard didn’t already have so something wasn’t right. Anyway it’s easy to correct.Hello everybody,
Long time no posting here and for a very good reason: I had a great setup working through this build (thanks to the OP and everybody else who helped me along the way).
Anyways, I first had a Mojave setup and then upgraded to Catalina w/ Opencore using this build without any problems except for occcasional bluetooth disconnects. Pretty inconsequential to me because of how little I used bluetooth on this desktop.
It all changed recently when I upgraded to a new case (a NZXT H1), thinking that a new case would not break my build.
I was wrong.
Probably due to the extra front USB ports (1 type C and 1 USB3.0), my system under catalina is now very erratic with mouse lag, system slowdowns and crashes, usually when plugging/unplugging front AND back usb but sometimes straight out of startup.
I figured: "OK, I probably should do the port mapping stuff and limit my system to 15 ports (which is ok for me)"
I followed dortania's guide (for Opencore) and also the Unofficial TonyMacX86 port mapping thread: no cigar. The ports just won't map like I tell them to.
I even reinstalled Catalina on another hard drive --> still same problems.
Long story short: I was wondering if anyone else here, using this build, had done the port mapping successfully either through the USBPorts.kext (or USBMap.kext) method or the SSDT-UIAC + USBInjectAll.kext...
It would be great to here from you since maybe this build just isn't compatible with the aforementioned USB mapping methods and you have to do it differently.
Thanks in advance for any help or feedback.
Important: January 2023 Update It's been a while since this guide was written and Apple has changed their USB sub-system in several significant ways. So please bear in mind: 1) From Big Sur 11.3 onwards the OpenCore XhciPortLimit Quirk stopped working. It hasn't been fixed yet. So generally we...
There is another users EFI folder here that mapped ports may work better than what you have going now.
Here, try this version instead. I think the other version is missing some stuff that could be causing an issue using a dGPU worked great. Thank you. Only BT not working which is strange because I have a native Broadcom BCM94360NG card. What kext am I missing?
