Hello,
As the Z390 Chip is already not fully supported I consider to buy the old gigabyte z370.

My question: for i9 support you need a Bios update on the z370. Lets say this ist possible with a old CPU to Start the update.

Could this cause the same problems as a Z390 Board regarding the installation of MacOS?
I do not know if the bios update has a major impact. As far as I know the recommended mainboards here are tested with max i7 8 Series and therefore probably not with the latest bios. Who is working with one of the lastest Bios supporting i9?

So what´s better: z370 i9 with new bios or wait for Support of Z390? Hardware is much the same.

Many thanks
