Gigabyte X399 Aorus gaming 7 and 2990wx both Sierra and High Sierra not booting

Hi, I already own a Ryzen 7 2700x with an Asus Prime B350M-A: I put the patched AMD kernel by Shanee for 10.13.6, patched IONetworkingFamily.kext and System.kext in an existing High Sierra 10.13.6 Intel installation, my system booted perfectly fine and is really fast.

Using THE SAME disk and kernel, just attaching it to a Gigabyte X399 Aorus Gaming 7 and a Threadripper 2990wx (Bios 11e), i get this:


which is basically this screenshot:

Using cpus=1 flag or npci=0x2000 doesn't make any difference... Even adding VoodooTSCSyncAMD.kext to SLE and recreating the prelinkedkernel cannot change anything... do I need a patched kernel or a DSDT?

If I try an existing Sierra installation that works for my Ryzen I get an Invalid kernel opcode error and a consequent panic in AppleACPIPlatform.kext.

Finally this is what I get using a freshly created installation pen drive with HighSierraV3Unofficial.dmg:

Please give me some hints... do I need a patch like this? https://osx86.org/forums/topic/20691-expert-needed-how-to-make-xeon-e5-2687w-v2-to-work/?page=2

It seems that since F10 BIOS osx is not bootable anymore, using a patched dsdt from my Ryzen setup partially works but system cannot show the gui... Can you help me patching x399 aorus dsdt? I'll post the two files right now!

@gengik84 can you help me?

Boom... https://www.dropbox.com/s/fjgsetepi6yh9q2/EFI Gigabyte X399 Aorus Gaming 7.zip?dl=0 using this EFI folder https://www.dropbox.com/s/fjgsetepi6yh9q2/EFI Gigabyte X399 Aorus Gaming 7.zip?dl=0 solved every problem, I had to patch the SSDT with the processors aliases starting from 0x01 not from 0x00, just like suggested in this post as I'd already found https://osx86.org/forums/topic/20691-expert-needed-how-to-make-xeon-e5-2687w-v2-to-work/?page=2, as you can see in the attachment. 


So... happy AMD hackintoshing to everybody, this cpu is really nice in multithreaded apps!!!
