    Hey @TheBloke great to hear from your success on then new vega using another smbios. My hack runs on a mobo without an on-board gpu, so the strange problem might be related to the missing iGPU. In my case, as I only need to run 2 monitors simultaneously, I am quite happy with the adapter work-around using DP and HDMI ports. But I will try changing the smbios too, maybe I can get rid of the adapter, I will report my progress.

    @HighSierraWannabe I ordered this adapter from Club3D as it is one of the only adapters available which is capable of a full 2560x1600 resolution. It arrived today, and after some configuration I was able to get the full resolution to work. The only issue I noticed is some blue flickering on black screens (noticeable on boot and youtube)... I think I will give the Apple (MB571Z/A) Adapter another try (I can lend one from work) as it might be superior to the Club3D adapter... but then an additional miniDP -> DP adapter is necessary - not sure if its a good idea... I am on Mojave 10.14.5 now, but I want to perform the update in the next few weeks. I think the problem exists for all RX cards, as @jsl2000 has it with the RX560, I have it with RX570 and @TheBloke with a RX580. EDIT1: After uninstalling SwitchResX the blue flickering is gone, might have been related to this. Not sure if its worth trying the Apple (MB571Z/A) Adapter then... EDIT2: I noticed some small red dot flickering in terminal window, verified by making it fullscreen. Seems like the adapter has some issues with black or the disorder is only noticeable there...

    Thanks for the fast response! Sad to hear that the problem still exist for you too... I have a 2 monitor setup, initially I was running them on DVI with a Geforce Card. But when support for nVidia WebDriver was cancelled with the introduction of Mojave I moved to the radeon RX 570. After finding the problem with DVI I connected one monitor using a DVI to HDMI Adapter and the other Monitor using DP to HDMI Adapter (this Monitor luckily has a HDMI-Port). This was not a satisfying but working solution... Now I have the possibility to change one Monitor with an old Apple Cinema Display which gets connected with DVI-D. Therefore I gave this old problem another try. Unfortunately it seems that I have to go with another adapter in this case too - it costs some money but will probably be the faster solution... Regarding UEFI: my MoBo is one of the first generations that supports UEFI, therefore I use Clover in UEFI-Mode so the problem might not be UEFI-related. When I start the machine with a monitor connected to DVI, I can confirm display flickering and everything feels unresponsive. Logs are spammed with VBLANK errors too. The monitor is recognised correctly (System Preferences and Settings) but the Display stays black. After going to sleep the DVI-Monitor gets image and the flickering and errors are gone... Unless this problem persists in the future, using a MST-Hub might be a possible solution for your setup. Regards

    Hey @TheBloke have you ever been able to find a solution for this problem? Or did you replaced the card with a RX580? I am facing the same issue with an RX 570. In my case the problem exists for both DVI-ports. I informed myself in advance about the OOB-Capabilities of the card before buying. Thats why I'm disappointed about this problem. Nevertheless I was happy to find your posts and I am looking forward to hear from you!
  5. Doesn't work for me, causes reboot short before or sometimes after login (if you are fast with password). Running OS X Mojave.
  6. Hey @TheRacerMaster in which terms is your version modified? I am looking for a version of this kext which doesn't prevent the system from shutting down properly (unwanted reboot). But unfortunately no one is maintaining this kext. Do you have any idea how to debug this issue for implementing a fix?

    P8P67 shutdown with unwanted poweron

    Now after activating USB3 using GenericUSBXHCI.kext the unwanted reboot is back again. I opened an issue in RehabMan's repo, but got the answer that no one is maintaining the kext: Link. This is sad, as USB3 is working as it should, except the unwanted poweron after shutdown. So any suggestions on this? I tried PXHCD.kext with my P8P67 rev.3.0 without success.

    P8P67 shutdown with unwanted poweron

    Solved it by deactivating "FixShutdown" in Clover settings "Acpi"->"DSDT"->"Fixes". Found the solution here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-shutdown-and-after-restart-asrock-z97-extreme-6.247353/#post-1706656

    P8P67 shutdown with unwanted poweron

    I am having the same issue with my Hackintosh running High Sierra on P8P67 Pro Rev3.0. Has anyone another solution than removing PXHCD.kext as I don't have it in my extensions folder.

    OS X El Capitan Test Thread

    I am interested in your DSDT too, running El Capitan on my UX32VD but I don't get USB3 to work. I have two versions of El Capitan installed, one with kexts in S/L/E and L/E without graphical glitch at boot, and one using Clover kext injection, with graphic glitch on boot up. Try to find out why its happening.
  11. I currently try to install El Capitan on my UX32VD Asus Zenbook UX32VD r4002v (BIOS 214) Intel Core i7 3517U (Ivy Bridge - IntelHD4000) nVidia Geforce GT 620M Display 1920x1080 10GB RAM, 256GB SSD 
 I use Clover v2.3k r3270 UEFI bootflags: -v dart=0 nv_disable=1 kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0 I got following to work with help of: - kext utility (bootflags kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0) - 68x' DSDT.aml (UX32VD) in 'EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched' - SeppDepp' ssdt.aml (UX32VD-Pack) 'EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched' (Clover kext injection doesn't work for me) Display - with full resolution 1920x1080 (nv_disable=1 bootflag) Touchpad and Keyboard - with ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext in 'Library/Extensions' (Elan SmartTouchpad_v4.4.5_64bit) USB to Ethernet Adapter - with patched IONetworkingFamily.kext in 'System/Library/Extensions' Audio - with patched AppleHDA.kext in 'System/Library/Extensions' and custom DSDT.aml Battery Symbol - with patched AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext in 'System/Library/Extensions' and custom DSDT.aml Some FN-Keys (buggy) - with AsusNBFnKeys.kext in 'System/Library/Extensions' (AsusNBFnKeys_v2.5.5) Bluetooth - works I guess with 2.0 only Not working yet or not sure about - Stand-by and Wake-up (DSDT?) - TRIM-Support for SSD? - FAN-Support (DSDT-Patch?) - CPUSpeedStep (ssdt working?) - correct Keyboard-Map - USB3.0 (read about problems with stand-by and wake-up) - nVidia 620M (read about IntelHD or nVidia possibility only) - HDMI/mini-VGA (not tested yet nVidia-Chip necessary?) - WiFi (Atheros card ordered) - SD-Card (won't work at all?!) I still have some kext and DSDTs from other sources to test and im not sure about all functions of DSDT and SSDT yet. I managed to fetch my ACPI-Files with Clover (F4), and try my luck tomorrow regarding DSDT comparison and patching. I am thankful for every help or advise!
