Hello Casey, thank you for your reply,
I'm on Ubuntu right now, and my test was to copy a large file from and to my thunderbolt drive. This took only two seconds vs about a minute performing the same operation on my Mac. (this is an 12 Gb file).
I don't know where else to check, or if you need me to grab some parameters - like dump a file on Ubuntu that would help me to debug the issue on my Mac, please let me know.

@CaseySJ , I don't know if this would be helpful, but since I was inside my Ubuntu with working Tb3, I generated my DSDT.aml file with SSDTtime application.
Please let me know how I should proceed, I really hope not to mess with bios in a nearly perfect installation, this is by far the best and the most stable hackintosh I've ever had, and going from F6 to F7 I would like to leave as a truly last resort.

Warmest regards,

Hello,
something is known about big navi support (6800XT - 6900 XT) in 11.3 beta 6?

That's reassuring! Because you have Linux running, please try the script created by @joevt in the post below:

Because you have Thunderbolt3 (not TB4/USB4), I think it's not necessary to upgrade the kernel to 5.11 or newer.

Unfortunately there does not appear to be any change to the AMDRadeonX6000 family of drivers. We still see the RX 6800 XT device ID (0x73BF) in AMDRadeonX6000Framebuffer.kext, but that's been there for quite a while. No mention of this device ID anywhere else.

Hello Casey,

I ran the .sh file from the joevt post, here was the screen output:
>>>$ sudo '/home/me/Desktop/dumpTb3/dumpthunderboltinfo.sh'
find: ‘/sys/bus/thunderbolt/devices/[0-9]*’: No such file or directory
find: ‘/sys/kernel/debug/thunderbolt/[0-9]*/’: No such file or directory
cat: '/sys/bus/thunderbolt/devices/[0-9]*/nvm_active*/nvmem': No such file or directory
[0-9]*

Please let me know if this is helpful or I feel something is missing.

Regards,

Interesting.
  • What version of Ubuntu are you running? uname -r
  • Is there is a /sys/bus/thunderbolt directory?
  • If so, is there a /sys/bus/thunderbolt/devices directory as well?

Hopefully this helps Casey,

Just out of curiosity, what does SJ stand for? San Jose, California by any chance? ;)
I apologize in advance if the answer to the above question is none-of-my-business :)

Guys, please help, I managed to screw up my system just by rebooting into Ubuntu once to check some settings. I don't really know much about dual boot, and installing Ubuntu in parallel to my already working Mac worked well, multiple reboots, various updates to Ubuntu, always stayed on the background, and whenever I needed, I just use F12->Ubuntu(dedicated SSD drive) just for that.
Right now what happened is that after I reboot, I go with default boot options which is suppose to be my Mac, press ENTER, and, to my surprise dive directly into Ubuntu. I thought I've made a mistake, tried again, same thing.
I disconnected my Ubuntu SSD completely, the Ubuntu option to boot is still there, next to my Mac's drive option. I select Mac, and my computer goes into reboot mode automatically.

I booted with my rescue USB now, look at the content of EFI on my Mac, and there's ubuntu subfolder right next to OC and Boot. What a hack is it doing on my Mac drive? What changed it, because until last reboot, it wasn't there.

In any case, I can't boot without my rescue USB, and some of the parameters are outdated on it.

Please help, what's going on here.
