Hi, i am desperate to get this to work. My goal was to make a hackintosh as editing workstation for Music production, podcast editing, video editing etc as my Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2015 is getting slow for these tasks. I've went with an Asus Z390-A Prime motherboard together with i5-9600K,16gb DDR4 2400Mhz Ram and Seasonic 650W PSU, i use intel UHD 630 for now as my budget wasn't allowing GPU Atm. I have a UAD Apollo Twin Solo MK2 soundcard earlier that i wanted to use so i got the ASUS Thunderboltex 3 add in card.

I created a Mojave USB and installed and everything works fine, except for the Thunderbolt add in card. I've followed this guide to configure BIOS for general use as for the thunderbolt card :


I powered the soundcard up before boot and installed UAD Drivers, restarted and my hackintosh detects it and it works. However my issue is that the UAD card randomly dropps connection here and there. It could work for 1h perfectly and then Boom. No Devices Found in UAD Meter & Control Panel. Restart the system to get the connection back up and it could work for only 5 minutes and same thing happen. This problem also happens in Windows 10 for me, could work for a bit and then suddenly it drops the connection and i need to restart the unit (since hotplug works in windows 10) I have tested hardware reset the soundcard also and it didn't work.

I am using Apples TB3 to TB2 Adapter, Thunderboltex 3 card is running NVM 26 and is a 15D2 model. Windows 10 was installed first without the card in and got drivers and all that installed first, then inserted the card and enabled it in bios and all that. Then i moved on to install Macos. The card has been tested in both PCIE 2 slot as PCI 3 slot and same issue. And bios settings are exactly as the link below.

Is it ANYONE that have experienced this or could now what i need to change in BIOS or something else?

Best Regards
Nystrom

Hi, i had it running with Windows 10 flawlessly for a while now and tried installing High Sierra today (My gpu is a 1080 so needed webdrivers) and used same bios settings as on My Windows config and have only tested it 30 minutes and had it worked for that time atleast! Will try more tomorrow and if its Still working i can share My bios settings for you
