    No need to patch BIOS 1503! Just manually disabled MSR lock along your BIOS settings. 
  2. Thanks

    Apologies for the delay in replying.
    macOS does not natively support the Kaby Lake audio controller
    See Post #1/VII. Unsupported/Non-working Realtek ALC AppleHDA/2. X299/4. Add X299 ...
    Install patch, restart, reply with new files, including config.plist.

    By default High Sierra formats an SSD/NVME drive to APFS, even if you chose HFS+J.
    By doing this I was having a mind-melt trying to install clover post-install.
     
    Then I found a Terminal command that does NOT convert to APFS, during USB installation, on tonymac. YAY!
     
    I am now up and running on High Sierra (HS), in HFS with clover installed perfectly in the same drive.
    Nvidia web driver installed fine.
     
    Just the audio to fix now. :)

    after many hours - still no joy.
    the BIOS is recognized, but the system keeps rebooting in an infinite loop, every 5-10secs.
    i had to reset the BIOS on the mobo via headers, and get it back to its' default BIOS (0601), before re-flashing it to 1301 - so i could atleast boot into windows.
     
    UPDATE:

    BIOS flashed successfully...

     
    now for trying to get HS installed.

    Here you go... patched ROG-RAMPAGE-VI-APEX firmware attached below (it also already includes the iMac Pro Splash Screen Image). Note that I could not test the file, thus if you flash your BIOS with R6A.CAP using EZ FlashBack, you do it at your own risk! 
     
    R6A.CAP.zip
     
    If you don't patch the BIOS you need to adopt and use TSCAdjustRest.kext! If you do not manually disable the MSR lock in the BIOS settings of the unpatched BIOS firmware, you need to enable xcpm_core_scope_msrs © Pike R. Alpha Kernel patch in addition! #
     
    If you use the patch BIOS firmware, you neither need TSCAdjustRest.kext nor the xcpm_core_scope_msrs © Pike R. Alpha Kernel patch. In the latter case you also should enable the MSR Lock in the BIOS Settings, as the corresponding MSR registers have been already unlocked for Kernel Write during the firmware patching process. 
     
    Good luck,
