  1. I see us going around and around with this. Let's start with the basics: 1. What is the Brand and Model of your motherboard? 2. How old is it? 3. What is the Bios version? 4. What slot is the card in? What other cards are in your system?
  2. BIOS upgrade, that's what I was going to say......you should understand that you just might have a bad hardware somewhere, too.......bad slot? bad card?
  3. Yes, it can be done, but its not easy. Check back in the thread with posts by d5aqoep. He managed it.
  4. Well, good luck! Hope you can find a work around. But if you can't, you could always still install one of the other cards I mentioned. But for your sake, hopefully you can get the built-in Aquantia to work.
  5. There are options: The Startech 10GBE card ST10GSPEXNB, The Chelsio 10GBE card, both of which have their own macOS drivers. There is also the X540-T2 card, which you would have to buy used, and there is a flash process to get it ready for macOS, then you could the Smalltree drivers on it to use it on the macOS. The fact that each of these cards have separate drivers specific to the macOS means you've got a better chance that the cards will continue to work on future versions of the macOS. They all also produce Windows drivers, but I'm not sure what versions of Windows they might support. The other option is to try and find an installed version of 10.13.3 that you boot to. You might find the install file somewhere, get a used or second hand good quality drive and install it just for the purpose of flashing the Aquantia card with 10.13.3. But, there's no guarantee that the Aquantia 10.13.4 patch will continue to work on the next versions of the macOS. Once the Aquantia is flashed, you have to use the Apple Boot camp drivers in Windows 10, if you use Windows that is. No Windows 8 at this point (God I hate that operating system - but I will use Windows 10). The Windows 10 Boot camp drivers that work with the 10.13.3/4 flashed Aquantia can be found earlier in this thread.
  6. I added an SSDT-USB.aml and that seemed to fix it. All done. Thanks!
  7. Okay, https://www98.zippyshare.com/v/BgaZOBUq/file.html Hope that works. Do you think the reason this is failing is because of a lack of an usb ssdt?
  8. I can't.....every time I try I get this: There was a problem processing the uploaded file. -200

    Try this......from Toleda..... Nvidia HDMI Audio/10.13.4 The process that enabled all Nvidia HDMI audio codecs has been disabled in 10.13.4 AppleHDAController.kext.

  10. So I replaced all files in EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other and drivers64eufi with these. Ended up in the same place.....Waiting for root device.....any other thoughts?

    AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    Is there a new version of AppleALC, that works with 10.13.4 and fixes the issues with HDMI audio (like today or yesterday)?
  12. Hi, Maldon. I hope you can help me. I have an 8700k on a Gigabyte Gaming 5 that is running 10.13.3 just fine. When I tried to upgrade to 10.13.4 on two separate occasions with two separate disks, I got the HID Legacy Shim 2 (and then the Still Waiting for Root Device, which quickly blurs out). I removed my nVidia drivers just to be safe, so when it booted, it booted to the default Mac OS graphics driver, then I upgraded. The upgrade seemed to work, until it did what I thought was the final boot, but on both HDs, it dies at "HID Legacy Shim 2" and then the "still waiting...". Any thoughts? I wanted to attach my Clover directory, but it's too big. Here is my config.plist and screenshots of my EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other and my drivers64eufi. config.plist
