    macOS Mojave - It's out!

    Waiting for Nvidia drivers. Hope the wait is not too long.
  3. What I did: 1. Extract the Firmware Directory to your Windows 10 desktop. Download AQC_Config.zip from this post and extract the 2 config files into the Firmware Dir on your Desktop. 2. Open AQC107-Config.aqc with notepad and make the necessary changes to the following: The below are the default values for my card. You have to download official drivers from Aquantia card and open the inf file to find your own values pertaining to your manufacturer. FW_FILE: 'C:\Users\Your Username\Desktop\aquantia_firmware\firmware\asr_d107_1.5.58.clx' PCI Device ID: 0xd107 PCI Subsystem ID: 0x1 (Mine is 0001 but you need to drop the zeroes if they are first. PCI Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x1d6a (Eg. If your ASRock PCI Device ID is 07B1 you write PCI Device ID: 0x7b1) (Adjust the firmware path to the actual clx file which contains the firmware. If you are using 10 Gigabit card, choose d107 file. If you are using 5 Gigabit card, choose d108 file. 3. Change the MAC Address by editing these 2 lines MAC OUI: 'XX-XX-XX' (First 6 digits of your MAC address) MAC Begin: 'XX-XX-XX' (Last 6 digits of your MAC address) Find your MAC address printed on your card's sticker or on the box. Dashes are required. 4. MAC End should be MAC End: '00-FF-FF' Count : 0x0 5. Uninstall your Aquantia ethernet device and tick "Delete the driver software for this device" 6. Install Diag driver for Aquantia card found in the firmware folder. 7. Open Command Prompt in Administrator C:\Users\Your Username\Desktop\aquantia_firmware\AQUANTIA\AMD64 (Adjust your path to diag64 folder and replace Your Username with Windows 10 account name and Press Enter) Then type: diag --password !h:ahT8uW6 --aqc C:\Users\Your Username\Desktop\aquantia_firmware\AQC107-Config.aqc (Again adjust your path as per required and replace Your Username with Windows 10 account name and Press Enter) If your paths are correct, you should see a success message. Reboot windows for firmware change to take effect. Your card should be stock and start accepting Official Aquantia drivers. It will not work in macOS anymore. (Even with the kext patches) If your card has AQC107S chipset, it will work in macOS. It is really necessary to find a card which has AQC107S chipset for out of the box compatibility with macOS. So far, cards by Sonnet and Caldigit are the right ones to buy. AQC_Config.zip
  4. I managed to successfully flash back the stock firmware on one of my Aquantia card. Firmware files are available on station-drivers website. I plan to keep it that way because it is going to be used in a Windows 10 Only based system. Just make sure to install the Diagnostic driver for your Aquantia card first. The other baptized card I will continue to use till it stops working. It is still working in latest DP10 of Mojave.
  5. Just installing 10.13.3 is enough for it to get flashed. No need to upgrade from 10.13.2. But the flashed firmware gets active only after you power off (shutdown) your PC completely and turn off it's power from wall's power socket. Then turn it back on. Regarding the faulty 1st motherboard, you need to RMA it to ASROCK saying "it is not working". Apple has recently updated Aquantia drivers for iMac Pro and they don't work with our firmware flashed cards anymore in Windows. Yo have to rely on Old drivers. So at some point these flashed cards might not work in Windows as support for older drivers gets dropped. Everyone's best bet is to buy a Sonnet card.

    AppleALC — dynamic AppleHDA patching

    Hi @vit9696 I am unable to get Realtek Audio 1220 for my motherboard MSI X299 Tomahawk AC to work with your kext. Any file you might need to add support for my motherboard in next update? Here is the output of codec-info.command HDEF@1F,3 = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Layout, hex: 0x00000007 , dec: 7 PinConfigurations: 00c50740104011012010010130600101402001015090a09060908102703081018040210229e6474090604501 Codecs Found: 1 HDA: 0 CodecAddress:0x0 VendorID: 0x10ec1220 RevisionID: 0x100003 CodecID: 283906592 Revision(dec):=1048579 Id=0x1220 Id(dec)=4640 Vendor=0x10ec Vendor(dec)=4332 I made it work in High Sierra with m********* selecting Realtek 1220 and X299 options with Layout ID 1 & 2. But I was not happy with it modifying AppleHDA.kext and performing unknown hackery. AppleALC.kext is THE MOST CLEAN solution. However, I have not had any luck in Mojave. Plz help.

  7. Any chance it is working in Mojave beta with mod?
  8. Hi dude! Can you let me know if WOL (Wake on LAN) works on your Sonnet Card in Windows? You can use any WOL app found on Google's Play Store or Apple's App Store depending on your mobile to wake your system up.
  9. But did you try it yourself in Windows? In Windows, Make sure latest drivers for it are installed, disable Fast Boot from power settings. Then in Bios of your motherboard, enable wake from PCI setting. Then if you have ASUS router, you can go to your router homepage -> Network Tools -> Wake on LAN -> Select the MAC address of your PC and wake it from there. If you don't have ASUS router, then you need to download any WOL app from app store and configure it to wake up your PC remotely. Even port forwarding might be needed but there are plenty easy guides out there. Once you get WOL to work, there is this Warm Fuzzy feeling that you have total control of your PC. BTW AQN-107 which I purchased from Aquantia themselves does support WOL and I got it for just $69 + $10 shipping.Now they have increased shipping to $30 haha. But this card relies on the hackery of installing 10.13.3 to make it work with a kext patch for future macOS versions. We don't even know if that kext patch might stop working in future and we have to rely on outdated Apple bootcamp drivers to run it in Windows. That is why I was trying for Sonnet card. PS: I have not yet got any Hackintosh to successfully WOL from shutdown ever. I can get it to wake up when put to sleep though. But in Windows, I can get it to wake up from complete shutdown.
  10. Did you try whether it supports WOL in windows ?
  11. The old way was a grand success at first attempt. Thank you very much!!
  12. Hi @MaLd0n This Gigabyte Z370N Wifi Mini ITX board is giving me a headache. I am using Intel HD 630 onboard GPU. I can USB Boot and install High Sierra correctly with my own Clover which is the latest r4630 build. However, I changed the USB kext patches to Mojave and the USB installer gets No display half way BEFORE you boot into Initial setup. I can see the progress bar and all but roughly when the initial setup screen is about to show, I get a black screen. So I tried your Clover folder and same result. I am using iMac 18,1 definition. Even with iMacPro 1,1 it's the same black screen. So in short, works on High Sierra and Black screen on Mojave. I tried upgrading High Sierra to Mojave and same black screen. Re-downloaded new Beta 5 copy of Mojave and still black screen. I am at my wit's end. I have enclosed my Clover folder. CLOVER.zip

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    Nvidia should at least release a beta driver for Mojave which enables UI acceleration.
  14. I use iMacPro SMBIOS + Latest Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixup kexts and never faced blackscreen issue from 10.13.5 onwards. Also with latest nvidia drivers for the specific release.
