@glasgood I hope your good buddy, Could you do me a favour and expand your guide say its for the z390 pro and also the z390 master please? 

Everything is exactly the same with this board and your guide its just a different efi and dsdt so I made a new mini guide for it. :)

 

Done :thumbsup_anim:

VirtualSMC.EFI is not needed as it makes no difference if you use it or not  with my EFI so why have the extra UEFI file if you don’t need it?

one of the goals for when I put this EFI together was to keep the EFI as minimal as possible when it comes to drivers and kexts. The DSDT and SSDT do most of the work so my advise is to try my EFI as is instead of bloating with stuff that’s not needed but saying that if you like VirtualSMC.EFI in there then add away my friend  :) 

 

Update - A fresh boot of Catalina doesn’t need shikgvga=1 to get DRM+ to work on my system. I’m doing a fresh instal as a test and it’s perfect for me with the EFI exactly how it is with no changes needed. Have you used a different bios setup or something?

 

Thanks for clarifying.  I'm not too experienced with Hackintosh yet so I have a lot to learn.  I'll go ahead and remove the unnecessary EFI when I get home.  Thanks for all your work.

I think the reason some of us may be requiring shikigva=1 for DRM+ may be because of differences in video cards and we would be running the SSDT for RX series. @hungrywallet I'm curious what video card you are running and if you are using the Vega/Navi SSDT versus the RX SSDT. That's the only difference I can see causing this...

Good hypothesis. Here are one data point: Radeon VII and Vega56 works perfectly fine. I plugged in my RX 570 and it works too.

Interesting, thanks for checking that @larabee. When you plugged in your RX570, did you also switch your SSDT to the RX version? Also, are you running 19,1 SMBIOS with enabled iGPU?

I'm using a Sapphire RX580 8GB Nitro with the new 19,1 EFI for RX series.  It's paired with a 9900K, 64GB DDR4 and our board.

@hungrywallet @tasc have both of you got Above 4G Decoding Enabled in the bios?

disable it if you do and try again without shikivga=1

I believe I have it disabled but I will confirm and share my bios settings with you guys when I get home.

 

edit: {censored}, just seen that I can get the Wifi edition of this motherboard with integrated Intel CNVi 2x2 802.11ac wireless for cheaper than what I got my current board.  Would this guide still be valid if I decided to to exchange it for the Wifi version?

Above 4G Decoding has always been disabled on my board.  @hungrywallet funny side note, I also had the opportunity to get the wifi board cheaper than the pro but went with the pro anyways because that's what the guide was using (and I don't need wifi).

Yes I will need to switch to RX version, I have friends running RX580 and he has to do a clean installation to get the DRM to work. 

I tested it on both Pro 1,1 and the 19,1. So far, 100% of Apple paid services are working fine. 

 

@hungrywallet the layout of the PCI-E lane of the wifi version is different so it needs to get DSDT patched again. You can run the DSDT extraction and send to @AudioGod to make sure it's working well. If you want to change board, I suggest you do an upgrade to the Master. Damn fine board.

Does the boards WiFi work with Mac? I'm assuming it does being that it's integrated but again I could be wrong.  Either way I think I'll just stick to the Pro.

There is a tiny slot on the top of the board that you can take the wifi module out. That's where the PCI-E layout is changed.

No I’m afraid not, you would need a dsdt with the WiFi patched out.

stick to the board you have and get a pcie WiFi/Bluetooth card that works out the box.

Any reason why I can’t boot with the following,

 

Settings -> IO Ports -> DVMT Pre-Allocated -> 64M

 

I have to set it to 32M in order to not get the stop sign.

Interesting, if you reset the board and then load back in your settings with it set too 64mb it should work.

its a nvram conflict that’s happening to you (failure to allocate memory kp)

 

@hungrywallet change DVMT Pre-Allocated -> 64M and DVMT TotalGFX0-Allocated -> Max plus Aperture Size -> 512MB and tell me if that’s better for you please bud?

Reseting the bios worked.  I loaded the CFG unlock profile in your original post, changed a few bios settings and set it to 64M, Max, 512MB and it booted up.

Thank you for this!!! I was able to boot, after adding agdpmod=pikera to the config.plist for my Vega 64 to work. Maybe OpenCore will help with my sleep issues. I am also thinking about going to the F11 UEFI BIOS next and will be using your files for that as well!

 

Edit: Additionally I would love to find out how to have OpenCore auto boot to my Mac SSD Nevermind I figured that out (set it in system preferences)

nice to hear it works somewhere else ;-) Well take it as an experimental release, f.i. you may not be able to boot Windows from OC because the modified DSDT is not compatible to Win but loaded all the time and therefore you should boot Win via UEFI directly.

And my rig sometimes suffers from Bluetooth lagging or unresponsive after wake from sleep despite of my PCIe BCM card.

I actually just upgraded to F11 and OpenCore 0.5.3, and I had to make sure my iGPU was disabled, but it also works so far, I have to test to see if I can boot windows now ;-) thanks again!

Is anyone able to say how they managed to get Netflix on Safari (DRM) working on the iMac 19,1 SMBios with iGPU enabled?

I can only get DRM (Netflix on safari) working using iMacPro1,1 with iGPU disabled but then I can't use Intel Quicksync.

 

I have tried with various ig-platform-ids, 3E980003 with 19,1 definition, then also 3E910003, 3E920003 and then also letting Whatevergreen decide automatically which defaults to 3E910003. I also tried shikgvga=1 and slide=0 with no luck.

 

I also tried various bios options. Enabling / disabling 'Above 4G decoding', setting iGPU DVMT Preallocated to 64MB, 128MB, 192MB then RC6 (render standby) enabled / disabled, then also various power management settings, Native ASPM enabled / disabled, ASPM, PCIE Native Power Management etc all with no luck.

 

I am aware this guide uses a patched DSDT, what patches do you use specifically for the iGPU and the Navi 5700XT?

 

Many thanks in advance :D

I think there appears to be a small error in the DSDT. You can use hackintool to manually patch your iGPU to match device ID. We appear to have 3 most common iGPU from Core i3 8xxx, Core i7 8700K, and the i9 9900K. Those 3 have different device id for iGPU, and therefore DSDT must be made for those 3 too. @AudioGod and @MaLd0n is currently looking at this. 

In the meantime, you can use Hackintool to patch your device. Link to the tutorial is as followings:

I didn't know about that but will try that now. So which Platform ID should I use then from Hackintool for my 8700k?

3E980003, 3E910003 or 3E920003?

 

Many thanks for the tip, I appreciate it :)

LoL hey buddy :hysterical:

Yes I found what the problem is last night and will correct it ASAP (it’s a tiny error within the dsdt) 

if you want a short term fix then do what @larabee suggested a couple of posts back but as soon as I can get hold of @MaLd0n  we will resolve it and repair the dsdt. 
Hold Tight mr :thumbsup_anim:

      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)

      PREAMBLE - BEFORE YOU START 
       
      Here detailed, is all the  steps towards building a successful and stable Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh, if you are a first time Hackintosher, this guide will have you quickly up and running with the Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh. To rule out potential problems from the go,
      only have the disc that you plan to install macOS Mojave connected to the Aorus Pro, disconnect any other Windows / Linux or data drives, external drives from your Aorus Pro. Windows / Linux and data drives can be connected after successful installation of macOS Mojave
      If you have more than 16 GB of memory, then install macOS Mojave with just 16GB or RAM installed, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1  and DDR4_B1.
       
      This build has a recommended Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3 with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2.  ( ensure WiFi card is seated properly in PCIe slot and cable is firmly attached to WiFi card and motherboard header F_USB2 ) 
       
      If using the Corsair H100i v2 AIO cooler with USB cable connected to motherboard header F_USB1, you will need to enable hot-patch ( explained in guide ) in config.plist for working sleep, wake from sleep will only work by pressing Power Button.
       
      Install macOS Mojave on its own physical drive, so do not try and install macOS Mojave onto a free partition on a disc that contains Windows.
      Remove any Thunderbolt cards, Thunderbolt card can be reinserted after installation.  Double check your BIOS settings are the same as this guide. 
       
       
       
      Following are unsupported / problematic
       
      • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave )
       
      • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( ensure you update Plus drive to latest firmware to avoid problems )
       
      • XFX Radeon RX 580
       
      • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave
       
       
       
      Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ?
      A - Possibly, though you may have to create your own USBPorts fix. 
       
      Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ?
      A - Possibly, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly. 
       
      Q - Can I use my AMD Vega Card ?
      A - Yes, AMD Vega card's  will work with this guide, but If you plan to use a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 then please read @AudioGod ==>post  regarding the Sapphire Pulse 56.

      PART 5 – CUSTOMIZE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER FOR AORUS Z390 PRO
       
      Replace Clover EFI folder with PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip   ( Video below ) 
       
      • Install ESP Mounter Pro v1.9
      • Using ESP Mounter Pro, Mount ESP on disk2s1 ( Your disk name may be different )
       

       

       
       
       
      • Open mounted EFI partition found on desktop
      • Copy all the contents from Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder
      • Replace USB EFI folder with all the contents inside the Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder.
       
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 6 – INSTALL MAC OS MOJAVE ON INTERNAL DRIVE
       
      INSTALL NOTE
       
      ENSURE BIOS: Above 4G Decoding is set to Disabled 
      if Above 4G decoding is set to enabled then macOS Mojave install will freeze at 2 mins remaining and will not shut down properly!!!!
       
      Please be patient during install, so when install gets to 2 or 3 mins remaining then it may take extra time. Be ready to boot from UEFI USB installer by pressing F12 when install initiates restarts. 

      • INSERT USB INSTALLER INTO THE USB 2.0 PORT  
       
       
       Here is a walkthrough of the full process using the macOS Mojave USB Installer on the Aorus Z390 Pro. 
       
       
       
       
      • Power on PC and press F12• Choose bootable USB drive from boot menu.
       
       
       
      • Install macOS Mojave to internal solid state or hard drive.
       
       
       
      When system returns to the Clover boot menu choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      At next restart, press F12 and boot from external UEFI USB device and choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      Proceed with macOS Mojave install
       
       
      macOS Mojave is now installed, but it can only boot at this moment thanks to FakeSMC and Clover on the Mojave USB flash drive installer.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 7 – MAKE AORUS Z390 PRO INTERNAL DRIVE BOOTABLE
       
      Make internal drive bootable ( Video below )
       
      So far, the Aorus Pro can only boot the internal system drive with the aid of the Mojave USB Installer.
      To boot from the internal system drive without the installer: 
       
      Download and install Clover with RC Scripts on target volume.  
      Copy the EFI folder from inside Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.         
       

       
       
       
      • Remove USB Mojave installer and shut down and restart.
       
      Aorus Hackintosh should now be able to boot to macOS Mojave, Done, well almost ! 
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 8 – ENABLE IMESSAGES & FACETIME 
       
       
      // UPDATE 21st MAY 2019
       
      Possibly Clover Configurator now automatically populates correct values for working iMessages when you select an SMBIOS.  
       
       

       
       
      After selecting SMBIOS, example iMac19,1 for Aorus Pro with RX580 ( image above ) then go to Apple and ensure you have the "serial number is not valid " message. Done!
       
      If you still have problems connecting to iMessage, test and ensure that AirDrop is working, then follow instructions inside spoiler. 

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 9 – ENABLE TRIM for Solid State Flash Drives
       
      Open Terminal and enter the following command:
      sudo trimforce enable
