Did you change the audio layout from 1 to 7?
do so if you didn’t.

 


To everybody else, I will post the new EFI later tonight or tomorrow morning as I just need to make a couple of tiny changes before I do so. :thumbsup_anim:

What are the changed components in the new EFI and when do you release it?

Do me a massive favour and as a test save your bios profile and then load defaults on your bios and make the changes needed for OS X BUT DO NOT OVERCLOCK ANYTHING and Give your system a bash and see just for me how she responds. Give it a try and let me know how you get on and please don’t let your pride refuse the test I know we all think we know best in our own ways but sometimes We all make mistakes buddy so give it a shot. :)

Im going to do a guide for the Gigabyte Z390 Master next but the EFI is almost identical bar a few small changes and the DSDT/SSDT. Guide and settings wise everything is the same so should I expand this guide to include the Z390 Master and have a second EFI and DSDT section or should I keep them separate and make a new guide for the Z390 Master?

Its you guys that I might confuse doing this so please do tell me what to do as I value all your opinions and will go with whatever the majority think. :)

The new updated EFI is now posted on here and ready to use.

 

 

Did a quick check and replaced SN,UUID and MLB for iCloud etc. No success on my z390 with i7-8700k and RX560 booting Mojave with this EFI

Black Screen. Removed all extra boot args but still black screen as soon as OS screen drivers getting active . System is alive and can login for doing (a blind) shutdown.

1. Changed DSDT, no luck. 

2. Swapped complete ACPI folder , no luck

3. Swapped kexts, no luck.

 

Seems something wrong (for my rig) with the config.

Try removing the boot argument agdpmod=pikera

 

This is using Mojave not Catalina right?

its possible the EFI doesn’t play friendly with Mojave anymore but I highly doubt that would be the case.

Yeah, that's what I did first of all. Removed everything but dart=0 .

The opposite , running the older EFI with Caty perfectly runs w/o issues.

Maybe the latest Caty betas are different here :worried_anim:

 

I recommend not to replace the EFI in your guide currently until it's clear what's wrong here.

Ok good shout buddy. Il do that.

tbh there’s a major bios rework that’s just come out for the Z390 Master and the pro and on the master The layout is so much nicer and asus friendly like and I now have the option to change the bios aperture so that means you can now raise the bios memory allocation from 256mb too 512 so no more need to use slide=0 when using with the igpu and your never see a random KP failure to allocate memory at boot up ever again. Whoever added that to the bios was thinking hackintosh when they did it...:thumbsup_anim:

 

its allowed me to change over to smbios 19,1 with my igpu enabled and I can now use Sidecar with no lag or stutter...it’s perfect.

@texem I forgot to say, don’t be tempted to update to the latest bios just yet as they have made so many changes that my current DSDT is totally wrong for it, It may work but all the tables are totally off now. I’m going to need a volunteer to update to it at some point and then do a F4 extract and send it to me so I can get a new DSDT made for you all. I have gone full on Z390 Master now so I’m doing things a little blind at the moment lol

hi again,

 

thanks for the info abt new BIOS. :thanks_speechbubble:

 

Just flashed it and made the settings I had before with F10.

 

Well,  z390pro here works as usual. Sleep etc w/o issues etc etc.

DSDT is the MalD0n patched native NVRAM release.

It will work but the tables will be all over the place. I don’t advise it brother. Ask MaLd0n to compile you a new dsdt or better yet press F4 at the clover splash and extract and send me the files and il get it done.

 

@texem do you have the option to change the bios aperture in the bios now?

if you do then raise it too 512mb :)

Even with it off you can still get the odd random KP caused by it so raise it anyway for a even more solid system regardless.

I have now updated The EFI again for Catalina 10.15.1 to stop the system going to a black screen at install.

You are now totally safe to update Catalina Using This EFI.

 

Updated 30/10/2019

AudioGods Z390 Pro EFI VEGA Navi Radeon VII F11 DSDT.zip - Use with Bios revision F11 Only (Catalina 10.15.1 Vega, Navi, Radeon VII DSDT Installed) 
AudioGods Z390 PRO EFI RX F11 DSDT.zip - Use with Bios revision F11 Only (Catalina 10.15.1 RX5XX DSDT Installed)

 

PLEASE NOTE - Please flash your motherboard bios to revision F11 to use my current EFI. It’s a major rework of the bios and vital changes have been made to the layout and power tables. New DSDTs have been created and installed into the new EFI’s but will not work correctly with any other bios revision.

Oh that's awesome! All bios settings stay same? My I9 has been OC to 5GHz and is stable AF ;) So far I have noticed that Sidecar is not working - but will take a deeper look tomorrow. Busy season has landed at work

Yes all bios settings remain the same.

 

For Sidecar to work you need to have your igpu enabled and also use smbios 19,1 plus your need the boot flag slide=0 and then Sidecar will work.

as for you oc, be warned as the new bios is so different that none of the power tables are the same so your overclock will more then likely need fine tuning again because of it. It’s a good thing though as the new bios is miles better :)

      SleepOnLowBattery (“SOLB”)
      by BugsB, based on a script by Toggi3 * + more code snippets from the www
       
      For those of us whose HackBook/ MacBook does not go to into power saving mode automatically on very low battery but just powers down coldly: “SOLB”, a small and low load footprint AppleScript based utility that checks the battery level every 2 minutes. You can choose between two versions, either with or without sound. Both display a notification in the top right of your screen.
       
      Between ≤10 and >8% battery charge:

       
      Between ≤8 and >5% battery charge:

       
      On ≤ 5% battery charge you will see a 10 seconds countdown dialog box in 1 second intervals:

       

       
      which you can cancel, or have your your *ac*Book be sent to sleep when down to 0.
       
      The version with sound uses the pleasant macOS US female voice Allison. If the lady is not installed, you can download "her" via System Preferences, Accessibility, Speech (pane tab should get opened by the install script), click onto the two arrows to the right of System Voice, Customize, English (Unites States) -- Female, activate Allison, OK (macOS downloads voices to /System/Library/Speech/Voices - Allison consumes 120 MB).
       
      If you want to see/ see and listen first, disconnect your Mac from its power supply and double click the “run Demo” file in either folder, with or without sound.
       
      The launcher is installed per user, so one user can use the script with and another user the script without sound.
       
      Run your desired install.command, with or without sound. The script should be active right away without restart.
       
      Regarding the sound version, you can also:
      - download any other English voice of your liking and edit the name inside the script at the very top
      - download any language voice and translate the text inside the script
      Edit with Apple Script Editor, save, install, reboot.
       
      Tested working in macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.1.
      Please feedback if this utility also works for you.
       
      If you have ideas, experience bugs, etc., please contribute as precise, succinct, productive and friendly as possible. In case of a bug, always include your version of macOS for me or others to try and help. Thank you.
       
      ENJOY
       
      VERSION HISTORY:
      2019-11-15 v. 1.1
          •    BUG FIX: changed all occurrences of ExternalChargeCapable to ExternalConnected in all Apple Script .scpt files (SleepOnLowBattery.scpt, SleepOnLowBatterySound.scpt, demo.scpt) to restore functionality
          •    IMPROVEMENT: made queries of MaxCapacity and CurrentCapacity more compatible to work with hopefully any system
          •    NEW: added Catalina compatibility to install scripts; verified Mojave compatibility
          •    NEW: Sound script uses voice Allison if installed, otherwise automatically defaults back to another English standard voice (Daniel, Alex or Fred)
       
      2018-11-10 v.1.0
          •    initial version
       
      IDEAS TO IMPLEMENT IN FUTURE RELEASES:
      Have the sound version install script check if Allison is installed, and if not, offer to download and install it. Purely cosmetic: find a way to have the display notification in the top right of the screen not display the Script Editor icon but the one of the utility without turning the utility into an app but by maintaining a script to keep the load footprint low. This is currently neither possible with an Apple Script nor with an Apple Script Bundle file, only with the script compiled into an app. One possibility might be a Perl approach, if someone volunteers. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      * Thanks to Toggi3 for the base script:
      https://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20110219013713667

      THE CODE (of the version with sound):
      install.command:
       
      LaunchAgent SleepOnLowBatterySound.plist:
       
      Script SleepOnLowBatterySound.scpt:

      Faz pouco menos de uma semana que estou tentando dar boot usando um pendrive no lenovo g40-80, mas todas as vezes que tento algum kernel panic diferente acontece, não entendo tanto de hackintosh mas pelo que li tanto aqui no forum quanto em outros sites me fizeram constatar que talvez o erro seja falta de kexts, alguem possui os kexts para esse notebook ??
       
      primeiro erro que tive era porque estava usando um pendrive de 8gb, o recomendado é 16 no minimo pelo oque vi, fui la, comprei um de 32, mudou o kernel panic mas era só um dos erros resolvidos.
       
      especificações dele:
      Processador: Intel Core i3-5005U
      Grafico: Intel HD Graphics 5500
      originalmente ele vinha com um hd de 500gb e 4gb de ram, mudei pra um ssd de 128gb e 8 gb de ram
       
      ja percebi que unico problema desse notebook é que a placa de wifi não vai funcionar, mas quanto a isso não tem problema pois se conseguir mesmo instalar o mac eu comprou outra

      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 F10, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8700k, 9600k, 9700k, 9900k
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, 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)

      CLOVER EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F10 to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      mb_bios_z390-aorus-master_f10.zip - Z390 MASTER Bios Revision F10
       
      Use this folder with igpu Enabled in bios for working Sidecar (Updated 1st Nov)

      To Create Your Own Patched DSDT Message @MaLd0n using the link bellow
      https://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&amp;t=1131 
      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)
