##### Settings

  • Quick Start - UEFI Boot Mode
  • Drivers
    • Audio -
    • Misc
      • FakeSMC Plugins
      • FakeSMC HWMonitor Application
    • Network - Intel - Choose latest IntelMausiEthernet
    • USB - Increase Max Port Limit 200 Series
  • Bootloaders - Clover v2.4k r4063 UEFI Boot Mode + Emulated NVRAM
  • Customize
    • Graphics Configuration - AMD Graphics Fixup (required for AMD card!)
    • System Definitions > iMac - iMac18,3

UEFI/BIOS settings
  1. After POST beep, press/hold DEL key to enter UEFI/BIOS
  2. Save & Exit menu - choose Load Optimized Defaults.
  3. MIT > Advanced Frequency Settings > Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P) - choose Profile 1
  4. BIOS
    1. Full Screen LOGO Show - I disable this, but not really required
    2. Boot Option Priorities - set this to the UEFI option for your UB flash drive. Disable all other choices. Once we run #####, we’ll come back in here and set to your new boot drive (in my case, the UEFI partition of Samsung 960PRO).
    3. CSM Support - Disable. Note that the Storage Boot Option Control option which is set to UEFI (desired setting) disappears along with the other 3 options under CSM Support when you set to Disable. Don’t worry, as Storage Boot Option Control apparently stays set to UEFI “under the hood.”
  5. Peripherals
    1. Initial Display Output - mobo should auto-detect your GPU card, so this should already show PCIe 1 Slot. You shouldn’t have to do installation using internal GPU, then switch to your GPU card.
    2. Peripherals > LEDs in sleep, Hibernation, and Soft Off States: OFF [this is optional if you don't want LEDs on 24/7, even in power-off state).
    3. USB Configuration > XHCI Hand-off - set to Enable
    4. Note: Once Thunderbolt3 AIC is connected, a new dynamic menu option for configuring the Alpine Ridge card appears below the USB DAC option (which lets you set options for USB charging on the appropriate ports).
  6. Chipset
    1. VT-D - Disabled
    2. Internal Graphics - Disabled (this also turns off the DVMT menu options).
    3. Wake on LAN Enable - Disable
  7. Power
    1. ErP - Enabled [UPDATE 25Mar2018] - This is now required to help fix issue where mobo on-board LEDs do not power off when in sleep/shutdown mode.
    2. Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN - I set this to Delay 4 Sec.
  8. Save & Exit - Choose Save & Exit Setup - this saves your changes and reboots your system.
