The hardware specs:

  • GPU: EVGA GtX970 4GB SC+ ACX2.0 GDDR5
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H-BK
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K
  • RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz
  • CPU Cooler: Hyper 212x Cooler Master Intel
  • Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
  • PSU: Corsair RMX Series RM650x 650W

UEFI/BIOS settings - Most important.

 

Vt-d - Disabled

XHCI Mode - Auto

XHCI Hand-Off - Enabled

EHCI Hand-Off - Enabled

SATA Mode - AHCI

OS Type - Other

 

CSM Support - Never

 

For Install:

 

Create a Penboot of OS X El Capitan 10.11.0, and install Clover in UEFI mode. The process of install is the usual.

 

For install OS X and boot I used these boot-args: 

-v nv_disable=1

Post-Install:

 

After entering in OS X, I've installed Clover in UEFI mode and upgrade OS X for 10.11.5 version using a Combo Update.

Keeping the boot-args.

 

Now you can download and install the last version of Nvidia Web Drivers, using NVIDIA Web Driver Updater.app

 

After that, change the boot args:

nvda_drv=1

About USB 3.0 recognition and speed.

 

I have the proper USB 3.0 recognition and speed, using only these methods.

 

DSDT patches.

EHC1 to EH01

EHC2 to EH02

XHC was not necessary change it, this device comes with this way (name) natively.

 

I used the @Pjalm patches (Intel 9) and (USB Power).

 

And I used the RehabMan's kextsFakePCIID + FakePCIID_XHCIMux

 

What works:

 

SpeedStep and Power Management - Ok

QE/CI - Ok

USB - Ok and in full speed    :w00t:

Trim for SSD - Ok

Audio - (ALC1150) Ok - I use AppleALC for this

HDMI video and audio - Not tested, 'cause are used DVI instead.

Ethernet Port - Ok

Sleep - Ok

 

Big thanks to:

PJALM and RehabMan - for DSDT patches, and kexts.

Mieze - For Ethernet kext

vit9696 - for audio stuffs

Micky1979 and fantomas1 - for Web Drivers updater tool

Piker R. Alpha - for SSDT script

Clover guys - for Clover obviously    :P

      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 Master 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 Master using bios revision F11L, 9900k with a 5700 XT but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8600K, 8700, 8700K, 9400K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K, 9900KS (All KF Models work but use SMBios iMacPro1,1 instead)
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, RX 5500, 5500 XT, 5600, 5600 XT, 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. (glasgood put the guide together for the Z390 Pro but the two boards are so alike that you can follow this guide with no problems at all using the Z390 Master)

      EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F11L or Higher to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      Z390AORUSMASTER.F11l.zip  - Aorus Z390 Master Bios Firmware F11L 
       
      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 05/10/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update v5120 - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F11L or Higher Only or Replace with the older F11c/F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios

      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
       
      OpenCore EFI Update v0.6.2 - 05/10/2020 (Big Sur Ready)
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.
       
      OpenCore 062 Z390 Master 19,1 051020.zip - OpenCore v0.6.2, SMBios iMac19,1

      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0 so please use the new Config.plist instead.
       
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following 

       
      PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11L Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      CFG Unlock (MSR) F11L BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU

      *This guide is deprecated and will not be maintained anymore*

      Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah   Still using C2D in 2019!
      Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave.
       
      Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030
       
      Config:
      Gigabyte EP43-DS3L
      Core2Quad Q9300
      6 GB DDR2 RAM
      Asus GT1030 2GB
      Sandisk SSD 128GB
      TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB
      Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)
       
      SMBIOS: iMac14,1
      Clover: 4297  4360
       
      A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!
      You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.
      There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.
      For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.
      You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.
       
      Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.

      Hi guys
      I already have a Hack running HighSierra and Clover.
      But I think to move to Open Core and install macOS Catalina.
      I just wonder if any one have any experience with this model of Gigabyte motherboard.
      I must add I use this hack as server to share videos no need audio for example, only network and storage
       
      My config is as follow
      Motherboard: gigabyte ga-h97m-d3h
      Processor : Intel i3 3,69 Mhz
      Memory : 32 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
      Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 (Nvidia Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.105)
       
      System identify as iMac (27-inch, Late 2013) 
      Current version 10.13.6
       
      Boot drive SSD Kingston HyperX Savage SHSS37A120G
       
      Any advice ??

      Finally I was able to move from Clover to OpenCore 0.5.9 on my hackintosh build. It boots really fast and even with the famous boot chime. I attached the OC config.plist for anyone who wants to give it a try. I followed the Github step-by-step guide:
      Haswell · GitBook
        dortania.github.io My build specs are:
      Gigabyte Z97-HD3 rev. 2.1, i5-4690K, 16 GB RAM, Gigabyte Aorus AMD RX 580 8gb GPU.
      I used OpenCanopy to give a Clover feeling to the OpenCore boot menu (I don’t like list-type boot menus).

      - Nothing
       
       
      Disclaimer! 
       
      Bootloaders are currently unable to start the installation.
      The solution is to use a virtual machine and use a physical disk (additional, USB or SATA, NVME) as a target in the installation.
      Change the OpenCore compiled from the source code, and add some entries in NVRAM through config.plist.
       
      This is not the best solution. But it is the only way at the moment. There are some ready-made images available out there, but I prefer not to use them and create a clean installation.
       
       
      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - Already working OpenCore with this setup
      - Create bootable ISO file
      - Spare Disk/SSD
      - macOS Big Sur DP1 install app
      - Latest OpenCore + Kexts compiled from sources
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches
       
       
       
      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock and another with overclock [5.0 GHz]
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup



      How create bootable ISO file
       
      Download Big Sur DP1
       
      Run this command on Temrinal:
      sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Resources/seedutil enroll DeveloperSeed Go to System Updater and download the Install macOS Beta app.
       
      Create ISO
       
      Then run on Terminal (One line at a time):
      hdiutil create -size 12G -fs hfs+ -volname install -type SPARSEBUNDLE ~/Desktop/install hdiutil attach ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install --nointeraction hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Beta' |awk '{print $8}'` -force hdiutil makehybrid -o ~/Desktop/install ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle rm -rf ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle
       
      Now you have install.iso on desktop.
       
       
      How create create the virtual machine and install to disk/SSD
       
      Download and install the trial version of the VMware Fusion from their site. I'm used the version 11.5.5.
       
      - Create a custom virtual machine
       

       
      - Operating System: Apple OS X - macOS 10.15
       

       
      - Create a new virtual disk (The size doesn't matter, We'll delete later)
       

       
      - Click in "Customize Settings"
       

       
      - Save the VM on desktop with name: bigsur
       

       
       
      - Insert the spare disk/SSD on PC (reboot if necessary) and identify what /dev/diskX is.
      You can look on Disk Utility.app:

       
      - Create VMDK that point to it:
      sudo diskutil unmountDisk diskX /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/diskX fullDevice ~/Desktop/bigsur.vmwarevm/physical sata - Edit the virtual machine settings created previously
       

       
      - Click in Hard Disk (SATA) and delete it (Remove Hard Disk)
       

       
      - Then add the physical disk
       

       
      - There's a bug in Fusion. To select the physical.vmdk, right click then "Quick Look", then "Share virtual disk with the virtual machine that created it"
       

       
      - Click Apply.
       

       
      - Now mount de install.iso
       


       
      - Start the VM and install as usual until: Disk Utility, format GUID with APFS (VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media), Install macOS, wait few reboots and stop at first boot wizard.
       
      This can take up to 45 minutes. It may seem like it is stopped, but it is not.
       

       
      - Press Command + Q and shutdown (usually WIN + Q)
       

       
      - Close VMware Fusion.
       
       
      Copy OpenCore to EFI
       
      - Mount the EFI with:
      sudo diskutil mount diskXs1  
      - Copy your current working OpenCore EFI to that mounted EFI.
       
      - Download mine attached or Update your OpenCore, Kexts and driver UEFI.
              - You can use the @MaLd0n script attached to compile all (OlarilaOC.command.zip)
              - If using mine add your MLB, ROM, SystemUUID and SystemSerialNumber. (see how to)
       
      - Add following items do config.plist:
       
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> boot-args -> -lilubetaall (append)
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-basesystem + Data + <00>
