Hello, this USB mapping is really driving me nuts, my usb3 dock keeps disconnecting despite following all the instructions... there must be something i don't understand. Do i need to rename the ports with the asus Sage board ?

Does the same thing happen with USBInjectAll kext and XhciPortLimit set to enabled in the config.plist? What does your USB kext mapping look like

I used to do the USB mapping manually by plugging/unplugging from the ports and checking IOReg, but now you can use Hackintool to generate a USB kext and then clean it up with a Plist Editor. Make sure to pick the right SMBIOS.

After you get this working, disable USBInjectAll and XhciPortLimit patching.

That shows up when you're trying to boot into the installer? I used the same EFI and I could boot into a 10.15.5 installer.

Make sure XHCI handoff is enabled in your BIOS or try another usb port.
Yes, that’s correct. It happens when trying to boot the 10.15.5 installer. Ok, I’ll look at XHCI Handoff and the USB port. Thanks.

Success! It booted up and installed Catalina. I did move the USB Drive to a different port, but I think the problem was in the BIOS. I never found a setting to turn on XHCI Hand-off, but I did find that Above 4G Encoding was off after confirming it was on previously, I think that when I was flashing and reflashing the BIOS several times that somehow I forgot to import all of the settings properly. Thanks for your help @djlild7hina & @izo1!

oh ok, the whole discussion was about that specific type of 32gb corsair LPX since i couldn't boot my system with them on my SAGE but Ghostmac1969 got his working. Could be the bios version or the CPU used. i'll never know since i returned the ram and got something else.
ok sorry

OK, I am able to boot fine, but I have no functionality from my ethernet ports. Only the Built-in Serial Poert shows up under network devices. I do not need 10G support yet, only 1G for now. But, because I thought I was supposed to, I deleted and unchecked the IntelMausi driver and installed and notated the SmallTreeIntel8259x kext. (I have not done the eeprom modding procedure yet). Should I have 1G ethernet? How can I restore this?

Yes, you’ll need to flash for any Ethernet on the Sage10G

So you say I have to “flash for the ethernet on the Sage10G.” Is that what the Ubuntu EEPROM thing is? The only way to do this is to use Ubuntu? Is there anyway to do it in windows or MacOS?
