Okay So I have two PCIe controller cards, both 3rd party, unbranded from eBay.
1st runs off the Marvell 88SE92xx chipset. 4 Internal Ports.
2nd runs off the ASMedia ASM1061 chipset. 2 Internal/ 2 External Ports (selectable by jumpers)
The hack is running stable no issues on 10.4.2 with an i7 8700k ASUS Maximus X Code as iMac 18,3
However, I wanted to add eSATA ports for some older drive enclosures I own, and some extra internal SATA ports as I've used all the SATA ports on the Motherboard.
The 1st Marvell actually works OOB in Mac OSX. No kexts needed. Speeds seem good (350R/400W on an SSD 80R/W on a 5400 HDD)
However, a few things don't seem perfect.
1) the AHCI version is 1.0. I imagine this could and should be a newer version? 1.2 or 1.31? If it should be updated, is this something only able to be flashed from a Windows OS?
2) It can't be used as a boot option. the Maximus doesn't recognise it as a startup option. Is this a possible AHCI version firmware issue? Is booting ever possible from these controllers?
3) TRIM was disabled in system profile. I know it automatically worked OOB for my NVME2 drives connected to the motherboard, But to enable Trim on an SSD 860 EVO I needed to submit the terminal command:
sudo trimforce enable
Now the second ASMedia controller I haven't been able to get to work. I've switched the jumpers (not sure which position is the 1,2,3) so I've made it so that one internal and one external will operate to test the card.
System profiler sees the card like all the others as a "Generic AHCI Controller" with AHCI version 1.20 supported.
However, I cannot get any drive to be recognised in the eSATA ports. I haven't tested the internal ports as I don't need these.
I've attempted using two kexts (attached) AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext and AHCIPortInjector.kext
When I use AHCIPortInjector.kext the SATA device is recognised in system profiler as an ASM1062. However no drive works with this kext. And reading the chip itself on the card it says ASM1061. So not sure why it's preferring the 1062 entry over the 1061 since both are present in the kext.
When I use AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext that SATA device is not recognised at all in the system profiler. It disappears.
I'm not using a custom DSDT for this motherboard and I've attached my config.plist if anyone has some insight on either cards.
i have a little old mobo with socket 1156 no Sata 3 - biostar tpower i55 and i Was wondering if i had some chance to install a new nvme memory like Intel 760p.
Due lack of support by my mobo i found a Pci Express card lycom dt-120 to expand my connectivity.
After some researches i understood that i need a ‘bios support for the boot from nvme disk’. I want some of these nvme memory to install high Sierra and get a killer desktop.
I think that i haven’t obviously a native bios support cause my mobo is pretty old, so i can’t get an nvme disk and install properly high Sierra hoping that boot?
Or should i catch anyway? I Guess that same problem is for w10?
This is a dedicated thread about the intel 8255X based ethernet cards which, although being old (but also very cheap and easy to find used online), they still works in the latest macOS releases today i tested mine with the 64 bit compiled AppleIntel8255X kext and works like a charm! stable and withou any issues with mine 100 mbit managed ethernet switch and also without suffering of problems like connection dieing under heavy load or sleep/wake issues, so just to report that i have create this dedicated thread about and also i leave the kext as an attachment, in this post, this may be usefoul to have cheap working ethernet for hackintosh machines running the latest macOS or just to reuse old hardware some one can have laying around.
I have started this thread to discuss about old and very cheap ethernet cards working in the latest macOS releases, cards who just uses old ethernet controllers or are new and cheap cards with old ethernet controllers, this thread is just to discuss about such cards and also to have a list in the first post with reported working cards with drivers linked.
To contribute you have to report which card of this kind is working for you and which driver or method you followed to get it wo work and also which issues you have, and then it will be added in the list.
I start reporting cards which worked for me, yours will be added in the future:
intel 8255X based cards:
just works using the AppleIntel8255X kext (look in the attachments) and seems to be stable with no issues
And also there are some cards i am curious to see if can work with mac, so i leave this part at the end of the post, do you know if it's possible to get realtek pci (not pci express) ethernet cards working in the latest mac os? i have a few of them and i have difficulties fining drivers for mac, having a driver for the latest mac wil help me in creating also a youtube video with the cheapest hackintosh compatible ethernet cards
Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?
DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.
Current Version: 3.0.4
The system dumps are saved to a folder or your choice, but defaulting to the same directory as the main application. You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.
There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.
Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.
The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper:
- ACPI tables.
- Audio codec and further info.
- Boot loaders and configuration files.
- CPU info.
- Disk partition structure / info.
- Disk sectors (hex).
- DMI (SMBIOS).
- I/O Kit Registry.
- EFI Memory Map.
- EFI vars (some).
- Kernel information
- Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts).
- NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables).
- SMC Keys.
- LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps.
- Power (Sleep/Hibernate) settings.
- System Profiler.
- System BIOS.
- System Log(s).
- Video BIOS.

Running DarwinDumper from the command line:
From Terminal, you can initiate DarwinDumper by running the following script directly.
/DarwinDumper.app/Contents/Resources/public/bash/script.sh To help with this, the UI has a Symlink option which you can click to create a symbolic link which points to the above script. DarwinDumper can then be subsequently run from the command-line by loading a new Terminal window and typing darwindumper followed by return.

DarwinDumper v3 requires OS X 10.9 and newer to run in the Finder, though it should work from the command line okay on older OS versions.
The following link retains the download for v184.108.40.206 for older OS versions.
