Now I'm really confused. I started over using "The New Beginner's Guide to USB Port Configuration". Step 1 and 2 are pretty easy and self explanatory but on Step 3 I'm getting a different result than when I tried it as shown in this thread's post # 27. It no longer has any HPxx ports showing, just HSxx and PRxx and SSxx. Also, for whatever reason, the controller order in the "USB Controllers" section are re-ordered with XHC at the top. Previously it was listed last. Even more confusingly . . . the only ports that show activity are the SSxx ports, which show 5Gbps when a USB device is plugged in. All of the ports work with USB devices (eg. a new drive shows up on the desktop if I plug a USB drive into it), but they don't show up as recognized in Hackintool?

I've attached a screenshot of the new port list to compare to post # 27 to see if that helps, as well as the current output from IORegistryExplorer. If you need anything else just ask. Thanks.

The ports in Hackintool look OK :thumbup:

XHC at the top of the controller list is fine too. :thumbup:

PR11 and PR21 are hubs on EH01 and EH02.

SS** ports look good too as your H81 chipset only features 2 :thumbup:

Sadly the IORegistryExplorer screengrab doesn't show us anything useful. You need to open the XHC section of the tree (about 3/4 of the way down) and also the EH01 and EH02 sections. But from experience of other set-ups like this I would expect the other PR** ports Hackintool is showing, to be hanging off those hubs. I don't think you should see more than 6x HS** ports which is the original 4x that Acer provides, plus two others from the SS ports (as they accept USB2 devices as well as USB3). That can depend on which kexts you have installed.

I checked again and there seems to be no way to expand the IORegistryExplorer sections . . . what you see is all there is. Since so much has appeared to change compared to post # 27 I'm not sure which ports to delete . . . especially when none of them show up when I plug something in, except for SS01 and SS02. Frustrating.

Sorry, perhaps I wasn't very clear - details of all your USB ports will be visible in IORegistryExplorer and they show up under the XHC and EH0* nodes. The section you posted a screengrab of is not the correct one. Do not select "IOUSB" from the upper-left menu. Leave it as "IOService". :)

Go to the top of the left panel and highlight Root. Then in the search field, top-right, input "XHC" and Enter.
best to not search for XHC, but rather scroll down on the left hand side to see all properties :)

Yes, I agree :thumbup: See post #53 where I suggest that.

However I think the gentleman may have been confused so I was trying an alternative. Next one will be search "EH" :)
