  1. I'm not 100% sure what RTC or USB Asmedia means so I tried googling. My motherboard is Gigabyte X299 UD4 and It looks like ASmedia is Asus from what I can tell. MY Specs: 10.13.4 • Gigabyte X299 UD4 • i9-7900x • Nvidia GTX 970 • Corsair Hydro Series H110i I researched BIOS settings from other X299 Hackintoshes and made some changes but the machine still restarts when awaken from sleep. I even tried all the Darkwake options with the new BIOS settings again but still same sleep problem. My New RunMe Files: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IZpJ9gfENVR1nvMHXNQoRPrLBNAsK7NX/view?usp=sharing BIOS Settings I used 1.) /M.I.T/Advanced Frequency Settings/a.) Extreme Memory Profile: (X.M.P): Profile1 I did not have the above option 2.) /M.I.T/Advanced Frequency Settings/Advanced CPU Core Settingsa.) Active Cores Control: Manualb.) Hyper-Threading Technology: Enabledc.) Enhanced Multi-Core Performance: enabled/disabled (optional; individual CPU compatibility yet to be verified)d.) CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E): Enablede.) C6/C7 State Support: Enabledf.) Package C State limit: C6g.) CPU EIST Function: Disabled3.) /M.I.T/Advanced Memory Settings/a.)

  2. Hi Maldon! OK, I will get rid of the SSDT. Where can I check to see if device is RTC or USB Asmedia? Thanks for taking the time to help!!!!!!
  3. I tired all Darwake options but all still make the machine reboot when awaken. So I tried creating a SSDT (not sure if I did it right) but still the same issue. Can you take a peek at it for me? Below I have my RunMe files. My Specs: 10.13.4 | Gigabyte X299 UD4 | i9-7900x | Nvidia 970 My RunMe files: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1e4WijzxpAiLdBljBUJj0Fe_7y3xE7Cjx/view?usp=sharing
  4. OK, trying now. Thank you Maldon!!! I will let you know.
  5. Thank you! I will be testing it. No, sleep does not work. It reboots when I wake it.
  6. Of course it boots fine Maldon, you touched it! I looked at About This Mac and the CPU now shows up as 3.31GHz 10-Core Intel Xeon E5 (see picture below) AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't't check anything else. Here are the SendMe Files: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jG9LdXDNl6ssbwi-ocEe2VWy8QHmrR3V/view?usp=sharing
  7. I have successfully installed 10.13.4 on my Gigabyte X299 UD4 with i9-7900x and am very excited. I have a couple issues: Sleep = Reboots when wake CPU = About this Mac shows 3.31GHz as Unknown (see picture below) USB 3.0 not working I am hoping someone can help me on this. Not sure if a DSDT or SSDT is needed which I don't now how to do. My Specs: Gigabyte X299 UD4 • i9-7900x • Nvidia 970 • Samsung 960 EVO NVME M.2 SSD RunMe Files: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1r_yNbmaqCyFzxJD4DO1SwKApd-RER-4C/view?usp=sharing
  8. Excellent, THANK YOU!!!!! That seemed to do the trick! Question, I ran CineBench to test the i5-8600k CPU and it says it's 3 Cores, 6 Threads. It's supposed to be 6 Cores with 6 Threads. Maybe it's CineBench?
  9. Awesome guide, thank you! I installed 10.13.2 fine, upgraded to 10.13.4 and my USB 3.0 ports don't work... Any ideas??? Also would a DSDT or SSDT be good for my setup? Not sure how to do either one but I see a lot of mention of it. I have attached my RunMe files if that helps. My Specs: Mac OS 10.13.4 • Gigabyte Z370p D3 • i5-8600k • Intel GD 630 • Samsung 960 EVO NVME SSD M.2 https://drive.google.com/file/d/14aN3MYd1TxBzmnc8iuoKnfyDeMYiIGOH/view?usp=sharing
  10. Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet. Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
  11. WOW, that worked!!!!!!! Thank you very much Fergarth!!!!!
  12. I'm not really sure how to do that but I would be grateful if you can point me in the right direction. This is on a Dell Precision T1600 desktop, E3-1290 CPU.
  13. Funny you should mention this... The App Store had a Security Update 2018-001 that was released today so I installed it. My Nvidia drivers now no longer work so I tried to install 387. and it says Mac OS X version is not compatible Mac OS X version 10.13.4 (17E202) is not supported with this package. Please see NVIDIAS website for further driver information. And it will notify me when drivers are available. Notice it says 10.13.4 (17E202) which I guess the Security Update updated it to 17E202. Now no more Nvidia drivers for me Prior to the update I did make sure to install latest Clover boot loader, and update Lilu.kext to 1.2.3 and AppleALC to 1.2.6 which I believe are the latest.
