This chipset is used on some PC cards also and they are very cheap (< 12 €, < 20 US$)

OS X driver (up to 10.7) + info:

I wonder if this will work for motherboards with an onboard ASM1042 chipset.

Doesn't work for Asus P8Z68-V Pro with ASM1042. We need some hack to remove manufacturer protection.

I've seen many hackintoshes in the last 5 years, but never seen one with a fully working onboard USB3 or SATA3 yet.

http://www.pcidataba...ils.php?id=1635

Maybe that helps. Must be somewhere encoded in the main code.
The .plist has IDs 0x10421b21. No content of the highpoint vendor id 1103

What happens? Have you tried to kextload it (konsole messages) ?
Also try to do that change in .plist with that ...Match keys, someone posted before.
Also check what PCI device id / vendor id is shown for your Asus P8Z68-V USB 3.0 AsMedia chipset (usings windows or OS X DPCIManager)

The .plist has IDs 0x10421b21.

The same IDs has P8Z68-V Pro.

Nothing has happened. No response after inserting the USB device.
I don't think that the change in the plist will help, but I will check it.

Our device (USB3) has right ID (0x10421b21), but PCIBridge ID (0x10801b21) may be wrong. (sorry for my english, I am old russian man).

Look into console (system.log) if there are any messages about that kext.
Also check with kextstat (in terminal) if it got loaded (even if not working) or not.

I have a question regarding this Highpoint board. The 1022AM model is for Mac with built-in support for RAID at hardware level. The PC counterpart, 1022A does not provide such functionality. I am attempting to use the PC board 1022A in a hackintosh since I preferably utilize software RAID readily provided by OS X.
Has anyone tried such board in a hack? The reason is pricing. The Mac model is 3 times more! But according to Highpoint, both model use the same core USB3 chipset.

I have the same question.

HighPoint RocketU 1022A

vs

RocketU HighPoint Dual USB 3.0 for Mac


Both models look identical in closeup pictures, but may have a different hardware ID, to get the "if they really need it" crowd to make Mac support worth the effort ($$) for HighPoint.

I think it's probably worth the $17 pricetag to find out. However, if anyone has tried and failed....Definitely speak up.

Yeah, kudos to you. Let us know since I have time to move on to ext. USB. Thunderbolt is not available yet!

I tried this. No joy. Kext loads fine with no errors but USB 3 hardware not recognized. I tried adding IDs to PCIPrimaryMatch and changing it to PCIMatch. Doesn't work.

It's funny how Highpoint markets same PC and Mac products from teh same chipset. I use a Highpoint SATA internal card (6GBs) and empoy 2 disks for RAID0. The machine runs perfectly except the card itself does not list properly in Systems. However, all the functionalities are there. What I am saying is it may not list in Systems but may well be fully functional. Take a look at teh attached graphic.

Sure - it might not be identified but its still listed there as 'unknown'. With these USB 3 drivers it isn't detecting a super hi speed bus at all. Perhaps someone with more kext knowhow than me can take a look

I picked up a secondhand ET2210 and have been fiddling with 10.8 r3 today.
It seems if you install a modified caldigit driver from Here and force it to load by removing extraneous matching in the info.plist (IOPCIClassMatch 0x0c033000 only)
it will recognise the usb3 ports, at least it does on this rig.

Same with CalDigit USB3/eSATA card, the USB3 recognized in System Profiler but eSATA shows as unknown.
