    Did you try with an Alpine Ridge card? The Aorus Gaming 7 is the only motherboard I played with that gave me out of the box hotplug capabilities and full USB-C support (I tested with both the Asus TBEX3 and ASRock TB3 card). All I needed was the SSDT that added the two PCI properties. So I'm surprised it wouldn't work for you. The GB board doesn't show the thunderbolt option in the BIOS unless the card is plugged in and connected using the THB_C header. I'm guessing the BIOS disable the Thunderbolt option with the Titan Ridge.

    This is better than what I experienced. Windows would only see the TB3 card from time to time and even more rarely see if something was attached to it or not. However, with Tb3 disabled in the BIOS and THB_C disconnected, the card would always be recognised and showing what devices were connected, including hotplug working. The attached devices however would be non functional. Edit: macos would always see the TB3 card, as well as the XHCI interface, even with TB3 enabled in the BIOS and THB_C cable connected. However, none of the attached device would work either, and no hotplug

    All TB3 chipset includes an USB controller (and 3.1 10gbit/s at that) Why would it need a USB2.0 external connector. It's very puzzling. I was too impatient and ordered one. It should arrive by Monday, will report then

    Cool. I'll wait to see if it shows up in France over the next 3 weeks. After that I'm in the US, will buy one then if still needed. Edit: Now having to wait for someone to make a 27" 5K screen, using a single cable. So I could use more than one 5K screen with my Vega Frontier Edition.

    Awesome, where did you get yours, at what price? Does it use the same cable as the Asus TB3 (or ASRock TB3), the GB TB3 motherboard cable is slightly different, their previous TB3 card came with a cable with both connectors, is that still the case?

    What you use for hot plug will matter too. like for me I can hot plug the Apple Thunderbolt Display or my LaCie TB2 SSD. But not the Promise Pegasus R2. Hotplug sometimes work with it, but if I reboot it won’t be seen until I unplug it. If I boot into windows after rebooting from macOS, Windows will hang at startup. macos does something nasty with this Pegasus. Weird because it’s a Mac version. It worked perfectly with the Gigabyte X299 Gaming 7 (including USB hotplug) but not the Asus Prime Deluxe or the ASRock Professional Gaming

    OK. So after more play with the SSDT (copying so that device déclaration is almost identical to a real Mac pro) it now works with the THB cable disconnected. However, it doesn't work any differently than with it. I've had hotplug working before, it just doesn't survive a sleep. And USB-c doesn't work better either.

    Does your XHC2 device still shows in IORegistry? I'm surprised it would with just the SSDT the USB controller is by default attached to PCI0.RP01.SLT1 You're only disabling PXSX device... Unless you renamed SLT1 into XHC2 in Clover hot patch of course...

    i'm always booting with TB devices attached.

    Unfortunately, removing the THB cable isn't working with the ASRock MB, no TB devices show up at all... When I had the gigabyte Gaming 7 Pro and was waiting for the connector adapter (GB uses a different header pitch: 2mm vs 2.54mm) no TB devices were seen in macos either...

    AFAIK, the THB_C header on the motherboard has nothing to do with USB. It's a GPIO, though its use is undocumented. On Gigabyte x299 and ASRock at least, if you do not connect the THB header, then the TB card won't activate at all, and the BIOS will not show a Thunderbolt entry... I'm rather amazed that it would work for you in macOS, I'm 99.99% sure your TB is now broken in windows however (and the TB card won't even appear)... I'm on a different problem now, since I added a 2nd nvidia 1080Ti, just having the TB SSDT causes a kernel panic at boot

    @maleorderbrideTrying to figure out why USB-C doesn't work (at all) with the ASRock TB3 card on the ASRock x299 Professional Gaming 9 XE board (it was working perfectly with the Gigabyte x299 Gaming 7 Pro). How did you determine the address of the various SSP1/SSP2 and HS01/HS02? Looking at the ioreg of a real iMac Pro, there's nothing other than SSP1/SSP2 The addresses are also showing as SSPS@00100000, the real ACPI device UPSB.SDB2.XHC2.RHUB.SSP1 was _ADR = 0x03 and _ADR 0x04. On the ASRock it becomes SSP1@02100000 and SSP2@02200000 (the address of the SSP1,SSP2 however is 0x01 and 0x02 respectively) The iMac Pro uses the same TB chipset as the ASRock card (or the GB rev2): pci8086,15d2 My setup is very close to what the iMac Pro uses: iMac Pro: PC02.BR2C.UPSB ASRock: PC02.BR2A.UPSB (using renamed PEGP) Any pointers? Thanks

    One thing annoying with the ASRock x299 + ASRock TB3 card is that I get the same problem I was getting with the GB Designare EX. After I reboot macOS, I must unplug + replug my Promise Pegasus R2, otherwise either Windows wouldn't boot, or macOS won't detect the Pegasus. Luckily hotplug works about 90% of the time, so I can just unplug the TB cable and plug it back in, and the drives will be mounted, and all the Apple Display peripherals works again.

    A bit of an update.. I received the ASRock x299 Professional Gaming XE board, still using the ASRock TB3 card... Good thing on this board is that all PCI slots are hooked to the CPU PCI lanes, except for the PCI1x that is connected to the PCH. Getting the ASRock TB3 card to properly work turned out to be an absolute pain, you must fully clear the CMOS if you want the card to work once you move it... Graphic card in PCIx16_1, TB3 card in PCIx16_2: TB3 Hotplug works, USB-C doesn't work. TB3 devices plugged don't fully work. In particular the webcam, audio device, microphone and USB hub on the Apple Display screen don't work (they work in windows) same issue as I posted there: Graphic card in PCIx16_1, TB3 card in PCIx16_3: TB3 Hotplug doesn't work, USB-C doesn't work. TB3 devices plugged work fully. Unplugging/Plugging however doesn't crash/hang the machine. Graphic card in PCIx16_3, TB3 card in PCIx16_5: TB3 hotplug works, USB-C doesn't work. TB3 devices plugged work fully Good news is that while USB-C doesn't work, it doesn't hang the mac when I plug something. So at least I can charge my phone Now I have a lot of USB ports that don't work anyway, so maybe it's just a matter of getting USB to work on those other ports first. For some reasons, like the Asus Prime Deluxe, the pci12d8,400f doesn't get its driver loaded depending on the slot the card is loaded. On the Asus I had to plug the TB3 card in Slot 4, it wouldn't work fully anywhere else So the best result I've achieved is with the Gigabyte Gaming 7 pro, however the TB3 card must be in slot 4, and is wired via the PCH which is non-optimal.
  15. Well, just to report that the procedure recommended yesterday worked. Booted under macos 10.13.3 about a dozen time after which the AQC107 was recognised. I then booted 10.13.4, card seen but unplugged. I then enabled the clover patch that renamed the IO property, rebooted... And all working Thank you guys
