    ThunderBolt Drivers

    Thanks for putting that together, @DSM2 - what does it actually do? I had heard the early Vegas were missing a UEFI GOP (?) - is that what this fixes?

    ThunderBolt Drivers

    I'm using BIOS 2002. I actually managed to fix the CSM issue at boot by flashing a "fixed" BIOS onto my Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64 (provided by @DSM2 - search for his website - I'm not sure what the rules are about posting links to other forums here).

    @Mork vom Ork what's the onboard TB3 controller on the Z270? Alpine Ridge? I have a Titan Ridge installed in my ASUS X299 rig, but it causes problems at boot unless CSM is enabled (which in turn causes other problems). I have a spare Alpine Ridge card that doesn't have the same problems, but never worked properly in terms of hot plug/sleep - I wonder if your SSDT changes would help?

    WhateverGreen works fine for me now with a Vega 64 and the LG 5k Ultrafine. There are wake from sleep issues, but my understanding is that these are due to ThunderBolt 3 - unplugging the power from the display and plugging it back in always fixes the issue.

    How to setup USB port limits under OpenCore?

    I know that this isn't the right way to run long term - I've just never gotten around to dropping my unused ports. All of the guides I've found are a freaking mess, and very specific to the motherboard of the person writing them.
  6. Hi folks - is the process for configuring USB port limits the same under OpenCore as it is with other boot loaders? I can see the XhciPortLimit kernel quirk - does setting this to yes obviate the need for USBInjectAll.kext?

    I have a very similar setup (although I route my air-cooled Sapphire Vega 64 via a DP cable into a Thunderbolt 3 PCIe card and out to a TB3 display - the LG 5K Ultrafine). I found that I needed to add the following to my boot arguments to prevent it dumping to a black screen on boot (seems one of the other automatically applied patches is causing problems for me, at least): agdpmod=pikera The display still turns off during the boot process close to the end, but comes back on again before it's finished. See if that helps? I still have black screens upon waking from sleep sometimes, but I assume that's the Thunderbolt card, not the GPU/display. Connecting/disconnecting the power to the display always brings it back (despite being a massive PITA).

    This was the issue for my X299 system. Thank you, @MaLd0n!

    @Pavo are installing to an NVMe, or to another type of storage? (Just running down theories at this point)

    Those of you who are succeeding with this update - are you using Clover or OpenCore when you install the update?

    That's specifically listed in the release notes as resolved in 10.15.0 beta 5: Your Secure Token correctly remains when FileVault is enabled on a non-APFS formatted volume while upgrading to macOS Catalina 10.15. (51091312)

    @bisdak4920 you may need to uninstall the beta profile from your Software Update preference pane, and reinstall it. That happened to me at least once during this cycle. For reference for those of us unable to boot the beta 5 installer, here is where my setup hangs:

    I'm unable to boot the 10.15.0 beta 5 installer on my X299 HEDT running OpenCore 004/VirtualSMC 1.0.6 as well.

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    I used the data from macserial: https://github.com/acidanthera/MacInfoPkg/commit/540a8a6c9bd65190c3ea701497e275a765980d17#diff-003e5ca88551c5fbf0bbd9c8a84e5501R430, which ended up looking like this: SmcBranch: <6a313337> SmcPlatform: <6a313337> SmcRevision: <02004100 0f00> No idea if it's right or wrong, either, but the data in System Profiler seems correct (well, "correct" these aren't actually iMacs, right?).

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    I'd like to second this. My sleep has not been working for the past week or two (I'm guessing when I updated to OpenCore 0.0.2 and VirtualSMC 1.0.4). Setting up the SMC-related options under PlatformInfo/DataHub in my OpenCore configuration has fixed sleep for my X299 system.
