Can't Enable Thunderbolt 3 in Gigabyte Z170X Ultra Gaming

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

¡Hello guys!

 

Im trying to get my thunderbolt 3 USB-C working.

 

My system are:

-Gigabyte Z170X Ultra Gaming

-i7 6700K

-32 Gb RAM DDR4 3000 Corsair.

-500GB NVME Samsung Evo 960

-500GB SSD Samsung Evo 850

-MSI Nvidia Geforce GTX 980

 

All the system is working for several months , but in that moments I hasn't got any thunderbolt device to test the connections.

 

I have done the requested firmware Thunderbolt update from windows. And im in the latest Bios of this moment (f.23d)

 

I think also that I have the correct bios configuration to get the system working.

 

Now, I have a MacBookPro 15" i7 2017 with thunderbolt 3 USB-C , so I supposed capable to use the computer as an HD.

 

I boot in the HDD mode , pressing T in the boot time, and then I connect via USB-C to USB-C cable my Macbook and the hackintosh.

then I power the hackintosh and after of clover and everything, Im at the desktop without any thunderbolt connection.

 

The USB-C port works , because I have used the USB-C to USB-3.0 A + ethernet. And connect without problem.

 

 

what could I do to get it working?

in a future I want to get an Apollo UAD interface .

 

 

¡¡¡Thanks you so much!!!

¡Hello Hackaro!

Seems to be that Target Disk mode is not supported between hackintosh systems and a real modern Mac.

ioreg says that i have thunderbolt correctly enabled.(tested by the mod Mald0n).

I have read in a thunderbolt 2 hackintosh build the same issue trying to connect a macbook pro to the hackintosh with the thunderbolt 2 connections.

He says that the connection has a problem with the EFI comunication between the two "macs". 

I don't know if this is real, but i dont find the way to use my MacBook Pro 2017 15" as a Disk xDDD.

honestly i dont need to do that, but it was for testing the TH connection.

I want also an UAD Apollo , and i was trying to test the port :D

have you got other macbook/imac to test the Target Disk mode with your MOBO?

 

 

Thanks you so much!!

      Hi,
       
      I need help with fixing Thunderbolt on High Sierra and GA-Z170X-UD5 TH mobo.
       
      Anyone who is willing to invest some time, and share his knowledge (DSDT/SSDT) with me?
      Can be commercial help ;-)
       
      Setup:
      GA-Z170X-UD5 TH i7-7700K Radeon RX 580, 8GB
      Crucial MX500 SSD 32GB RAM Broadcom BCM43xx (AirPort Extreme) WiFi + Bluetooth
      Clover
      Windows 10 dual boot (separate disk)
       
      System is up and running. Sleep, shutdown, power management - fully working.
       
      Whatever I will do - no way to keep Thunderbolt on. But - it is on the system. Sometimes it works (randomly after restart).
       
      As mentioned above - any help (commercial also) fully appreciated.
       
      Best,
      fm

      Clover r4542 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 14 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4542 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4542-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      ///////////////////////////////////////////
       

       
      1 - Preparando PENBOOT:
        1.1 - Baixe a imagem do Sierra e deixe na pasta "Applications";
        1.2 - Formate o PenDrive e altere o nome para: "MyVolume";
        1.3 - Abra o Terminal e digite a seguinte linha de código, dê enter e quando solicitado digite sua senha. Aguarde o término da instalação, geralmente demora em torno de 20min:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app  
       
      1.4 - Baixe a última versão do Clover EFI bootloader: Download
        1.5 - Abra o Clover, na última etapa, clique em Customize, depois marque a opção "Install for UEFI booting only", como na imagem abaixo:

       
        1.6 - Provavelmente a partição "EFI" estará montada, abra a partição e substitua a pasta "CLOVER" por esta CLOVER Asus X99 Deluxe II - Sierra.zip.
       
      2 - Configurando BIOS
        2.1 - Atualize sua BIOS para a versão mais recente, a minha é: 1902
        2.2 - Reset as configurações de sua BIOS em: Exit/Load Optimized Defaults;
        2.3 - Vá para: Boot/CMS (Compatibility Support Module)/Launch CMS: ENABLED;
        2.4 - Vá para: Boot/Secure Boot/OS Type: Other OS;
       
      3 - Instalando OS
        3.1 - Ligue o computador com o Pendrive espetado, ele automaticamente irá iniciar o Clover, caso isso não aconteça, na tela inicial da ASUS, pressione F8 para escolher o pendrive como boot primário;
        3.2 - Em algum momento futuro, seu clover pode não arrancar corretamente, caso isso aconteça, na tela inicial do CLOVER pressione F11 para limpar o NVRAM, ele irá reiniciar a máquina automaticamente, em seguida voltará a arrancar normalmente;
       
      4 - PÓS-INSTALAÇÃO
        4.1 - Inicie seu MAC temporariamente pelo Pendrive como boot primário;
        4.2 - Instale o clover seguindo as etapas 1.4, 1.5 e 1.6 . Apenas não esqueça de alterar o destino para o HD Interno com a instalação do Sierra.
        4.3 - Feito isso, reinicie seu mac, agora sem o pendrive;
       
      5 - VÍDEO
        5.1 - Na pasta CLOVER que anexei acima, já possui as kexts NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext e Lilu.kext ;
        5.2 - Baixe e instale o nVidia Web Driver(Download) de acordo com a versão do seu OS;
        5.3 - A minha versão, por exemplo, é: "macOS 10.12.6 (16G1408)";
        5.4 - Veja abaixo onde encontrar sua versão:

       
      Obs.: Existe um bug no vídeo, caso queira utilizar a entrada DVI, é preciso iniciar a máquina já com o cabo plugado, caso contrário ele deixará sua tela preta e não voltará mais ao normal até que reinicie a máquina.
       
        5.5 - INSTALANDO O CUDA:
           1 - A última versão não funcionou, então baixei a penúltima e funcionou perfeitamente. A versão instalada foi: CUDA 387.178 driver for MAC.

       
       
      6 - ÁUDIO
        6.1 - Baixe o Voodoo HDA 2.9.0 Clover (Download)
        6.2 - Siga as etapas das imagens que estão dentro do anexo;
       
       
      Não solucionado:
      Não consigo habilitar a placa ThunderboltEX 3;
       
       
      Valeu.
