    ThunderBolt Drivers

    I'm glad to hear this! I had read in the past that the latest firmware update for Alpine Ridge was the last to support the Thunderbolt 2

    Unfortunately, I fear it is not backwards compatible with THB 2 devices, even using TB3 to TB2 adapters. Can you confirm or am I wrong?

    I also wanted to bring my experience because I currently have the hotplug working properly without using strange tricks. Gigabyte recently released an BIOS update for the Z370 motherboard, which adds compatibility to the new 9th Gen processors. I had read earlier that the Z390 chipset would bring greater compatibility with the Thunderbolt connection, and I think this BIOS update brought some of these changes. In fact now, not only do I have new Thunderbolt settings in the BIOS, but the hotplug also works perfectly with the THB_C header connected!

    Today I updated the bios of my GB Z370 to the F10 version, and I noticed new settings in the Thunderbolt section. Now I have the THB_C cable disconnected and it is not comfortable to install it, so, someone who has the cable already connected (with similar hardware) can do some tests and see if anything changes?
  5. Thanks @MaLd0n! The problem was the NVRAM! My card probably does not support native NVRAM, so I used the emulated one! This solves all my problems! Thanks again!
  6. Thanks for your help! I apologize for the delay but I had to perform some tests to see if it works or not. Unfortunately with your Clover folder the machine never switches off (the power LED on the case stays on). I have made changes by removing many parameters that I do not need as for example the intel graph (I use only the gpu nvidia). As SSDT I left only one for USB ports which, as Rehabman said, is correct. Now the machine turns off even with a connected HD USB3 (before if a USB3 device was connected I had a reboot) and sleep and wake work properly. The shutdown is still very long, sometimes it takes 2 minutes for the machine to switch off and it still happens that 1-2 times out of 5 the computer will restart after shutdown. My doubt is that the problem may be caused by USB ports not yet well implemented in H310 motherboards. Can you understand more? I would only be interested in solving the reboot after shutdown problem. I will never use sleep on this machine. This is the send me with your clover folder: Send me NEW.zip This is your modified clover folder that I'm using now: CLOVER.zip Hardware: MB H310M H - CPU i3-8100 - Nvidia GTX 760 Last question, the drivers: SMCHelper-64.efi, PartitionDxe-64.efi, NvmExpressDxe-64.efi, are needed in the new hardware with High Sierra? Thanks!
  7. Hi @MaLd0n, I have some problem with my last build that I can't solve. MB GB H310M H CPU i3-8100 Graphics Palit GTX 760 (with web driver because I have some lag without) The main problem is that sometimes I have a reboot after shutdown. Other minor problems that I do not care to solve are: - if I put the machine in sleep, I get a restart. Now, with Halt Enabler and Fix Header checked in clover if I put the machine in sleep, the screen turns off for a few seconds and takes me back to the login screen. - the shutdown is strangely longer than usual (1-2 minutes). USB device connected are a BT keyboard and mouse, as well as a USB-wifi antenna (Edimax EW-7612UAN V2) with driver for MacOS HS (which I have now moved to a USB2 port). Erp is already enabled on bios. Please could you help me to understand what does not work properly? Send me Homes-iMac.zip

    No no thanks I already have the two ioreg file of my system with a clean installation. I only asked if there is an automatic way to find all the differences. I do not know if the only differences (I've already noticed some) are only on the ACPI path of the PCI-TB card

    Hi @KGP-iMacPro, do you think there is a way to compare two ioreg files of the same system? I want to see all the differences when the THB_C cable is connected/disconnected

    If you use the ssdt the arbitrary inject are not needed because PCI-Thunderbolt One is already present on the ssdt under UPSB

    Remove the THB_C cable and try this: SSDT-TB3 Z270.aml Remember though, the method without THB_C works only if a device is connected and turned on before boot, otherwise the PCI-TB card is not loaded by the system (and you do not see it on ioreg). In my case it works because my TB Dock is always on. To succeed try these steps: 1- enable Fix Shutdown in Clover 2- turn off the computer 3- Connect the TB device and switch it on 4- wait few seconds and turn on the computer Obviously if you do not have a dock like me you have two choices: - Use the SSDT V1 or V2 and deactivate the sleep if you are having problems - Wait for new developments @Loloflat6 Apart this bad luck, you're still lucky, the TBEX is the only TB card (at least until now) that is recognized naturally by the system even without a THB_C cable o device connected at boot

    Try to boot with a TB device connected

    Hi @KGP-iMacPro, finally after more than a month some progress! Unfortunately this is not the definitive answer, but it poses other questions. What I did not say yesterday, is that once the THB_C cable is removed the Thunderbolt PCI card is not loaded by the system at startup. But if I have a device connected and turned on before boot the PCI card is recognized and loaded correctly, but not only, in this way you have the hotplug of all devices! To make it work, add "PCI-Thunderbolt One" to PXSX/BR1A. It works either with Arbitrary inject or with _DSM method on SSDT (better because the devices can be implemented on the PCI system info). I use a Thunderbolt dock that turns on when I turn on the computer (to be precise, since I use Fix Shutdown, never turns off like my USB devices), and then the Thunderbolt PCI card is charged every time the computer is started and all the devices after the dock are hotpluggable. Based on the original Apple SSDT of an iMac18,3, I realized this: SSDT-TB3 V3.zip (Updated version) However I do not know if it works correctly on both Thunderbolt ports and USB-C devices. I will do some more tests when we have the final solution. Obviously as I said, this is not a solution, but it makes clear that the problems with the hotplug derive from the functions that add the THB_C cable, so we are faced with two ways:1- Finding the way to make the PCI card load from the system even without a connected THB_C cable2- Understand what features this cable provides and whether it can be found in ACPI paths to include it in the SSDT

    If you use arbitrary inject, you do not need the ssdt, so try in the meantime. Later I update everyone for use this method and load the correct ssdt

    Sorry! I forgot, if you use SSDT V3 you have to remove the _DSM method from DSB1
