  1. I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me. This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Pro and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this. This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware using Catalina 10.15.1 CPU's 8700k, 9600k, 9700k, 9900k GPU's RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, 5700, 5700 XT (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know) @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install.

It’s a major rework of the bios and vital changes have been made to the layout and power tables.

  2. I don't think you can on clover but why would you want to do that anyways??????????????? isn't that what your clover startup splash is for?
  3. I did the same thing the other day with my system and it was the best move ever...lol my system needed it big time. you absolutely fine to use time machine to restore your data after you clean instal. Works beautifully.
  4. @hungrywallet are you all sorted out now buddy?
  5. Personally I have two EFI’s with two sets of serials and info in them and I keep them separate so I don’t mess up my iMessage and iCloud info. So I when move from 1,1 to 19,1 I log out of 1,1 and then remove it from my iCloud info via my iPad or iPhone and then log in as my 19,1 EFI. That way Apple sees it as me with two different systems with two different sets of info and done. no need to ever get in touch with Apple about anything what so ever and if you do your taking a risk!
  6. No no don’t give up just yet that’s half way there ok so now add one line to the config shikigva=1 reboot and try Apple TV again
  7. @hungrywallet here you go mate, put your details back in and try now. dont add anything else to the boot arguments or anything else and try the EFI as is. I have injected your igpu for you though clover. Apple TV should work now for you under this EFI. let me know on the thread if it works for you now? Hungry Wallet EFI.zip also make sure CSM is disabled in the bios if it’s not already.
  8. Send me a copy of your current EFI and il take a look at it tomorrow at some point for you as I’m off to bed now, (uk time)
  9. I use a nitro+ SE Vega 56 and it works perfectly for me so the 64 should be exactly the same.
  10. I dropped Efi 19,1 this morning am I’m getting to many people using it with trouble. If you check the guide or a few posts back there’s a notice about 19,1.
  11. Your very welcome. inject your igpu as headless in the clover config and it should work. if it works under 1,1 then it will work under 19,1 when set correctly.
  12. Your welcome lol If you want it to work under 19,1 you need to inject your igpu as headless in the clover config but just stay at 1,1 dude and enjoy.
  13. well I see one connection here and that is your both using nitro cards. im using a nitro as well but mines a vega. i remember now when I used to use @glasgood EFI using a rx580 that I had all sorts of trouble with that card and I resolved it in the end with a new bios revision for the and gpu that one of the fixes listed was for macOS stability. That was a gigabyte rx580 but it might be a good idea to check and see if there’s a newer bios revision for the gpu then what your currently using. its a long shot but it’s the only connection I can make so far.
  14. For SmUUID in Terminal run command “uuidgen” and copy it to SmUUID field For the MAC address you use your MAC address connected to your Ethernet or WiFi (whatever you use as you main connection) minus the colons. and just copy the serial generated for the board into rt variables with no alterations at all.
  15. How are you creating your serial and other info into the config?
  16. Smart move, that and the master are the two best boards you can get in my opinion.
  17. Guide Update I am going to revert the EFI back to SMBios MacPro1,1 as to many of you are having to many problems getting it to run correctly under SMBios iMac19,1 The fix at the moment that works best would be to stop using Aptiomemoryfix.EFI and swap over to OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi and this would resolve the memory allocation failures at startup but since the Dev of OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi has pleaded with people not to use this driver in fear of it causing hardware failure I am not willing to use it but I have to add that the amount of system failures caused by using OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi is as far as I know a big fat Zero so if you want to carry on using my EFI under SMBios19,1 and can’t get it to work properly in its current form then that’s the fix to make it work correctly for you.
  18. I’m at work Right now and have every gpu you can think of in front of me so I just tested Netflix via safari on 19,1 and 1,1 using a RX580 and then a RX570 and they both work for me on a system I just slapped together in a few minutes with bits and bobs on my test bench. I’m baffled why it isn’t working for you bud.
  19. The 8700k is correct already within the dsdt and no patch is needed. @larabee will help you out when he has the time don’t worry as he is using a 8700k with no troubles at all. the fault is purely 9xxx based buddy.
  20. @unknown1221 @hungrywallet @ilcondannato the correct I’d for the 9900k is platform id 0x3E980003 use hackintool to patch the clover config or if you want to do it manually then you want it to look like this.
  21. Interesting, if you reset the board and then load back in your settings with it set too 64mb it should work. its a nvram conflict that’s happening to you (failure to allocate memory kp) @hungrywallet change DVMT Pre-Allocated -> 64M and DVMT Total GFX0-Allocated -> Max and tell me if that’s better for you please bud?
  22. No I’m afraid not, you would need a dsdt with the WiFi patched out. stick to the board you have and get a pcie WiFi/Bluetooth card that works out the box.
  23. @hungrywallet @tasc have both of you got Above 4G Decoding Enabled in the bios? disable is if you do and try again without shikivga=1
