I have this exact issue......
What version of OSX are you running? Update to 10.14.5 released yesterday. It has native support for Radeons and proper fan profiles. I was running the beta for a month and haven't had that issue. You can also finally switch to 19,1 or 19,2 profile after the install as well.

Ok so after my first attempt, setting the BIOS, creating the bootable USB and swapping out the EFI foe the one in the DGPU.zip (the only file I Downloaded) I was able to to get to the, what looked like, the 2 minute remaining mark at install. then a restart. I then started over in verbose mode. Im not sure were to start with the error logs here. i checked my BIOS twice over but same result. Im not sure why the images are upside down but once clicked on they seem to render properly.

The Z390-E always seems to have this exact problem and we have been unable to figure out why. Make sure legacy USB is disabled. It may also be an NVRAM issue. When it freezes, did you do a manual reboot and try to continue install?

I found this on another thread, maybe try his EFI Folder, haven't looked at the differences yet but apparently there was some progress.

Maybe I didn't properly follow the thread but the Z390-E used to work properly until about 1.5 months ago. No harm in trying PastryChefs EFI though.

That was weird too. Along with -V, I i set it so it wouldn’t reboot on a panic. Never freezes though. Just end up back at the CBM. Three tries same result. Im going to try the recommended EFI when I get back to it.

Also, is it normal to no longer see the EFI partition of the drive when the USB is inserted back into the Mac it was created on?

Yes, it needs to be remounted every time you boot.

Hi all. I've seen Z390E, F & I here but no 'M''s so far. Should I expect any problems or drastic differences from what's been posted so far using the ASUS TUF Z390M-Pro instead? So far it looks like I should just be happy about the extra slots, disable the on-board WIFI and use a WIFI/Bluetooth card like the Fenvi.

I haven't received all my parts, yet, so I probably won't start building until next week. I have 3 Macs right now, but I'm hoping this will become my daily driver.

Thank you for all the work so far and for the very active forum.
