AudioGod's Aorus Z390 Pro Patched DSDT Mini Guide and Discussion

Recommended Posts

@larabee Hey! Thanks for the suggestion, I put my setup in my sig :)

 

I did some changes to my powering, so far I had zero crashes and zero issues, I played a lot and rendered a lot, worked fine, so I guess it was an issue with powering.

 

@gino8080, yes mate, it seems that kind of the same issue was with me, although I did not change anything inside my tower, I changed my powering setup for my PSU.

 

By the way, I have an old Samsung tab A tablet with 10.1-inch screen, I have mounted it on the wall right next to my three monitors and above my MacBook Pro (photo showed bellow), I use it mainly for monitoring cryptos, and some times some YouTube videos, a few days ago I install iDisplay app for Android and iDisplay driver in my mac and now I can use it as an external  monitor and I can say it works G R E A T! I now use it to have trading view in full screen there and Spotify as well, also some small apps that I don't want to bother having them in one of my 3 monitors (for instance torrents).

That photo is a bit old, I have replaced my Matias Keyboard for a DAS Professional 4 for Mac with Blue switches, it is more than perfect! And the soundbar to a Horizon, much bigger and much better!

Amazing working station my friend. What did you change in your PSU?

@larabee I did not change my PSU, I changed my UPS because it produced some strange noises that weren't normal, I'm not yet sure if that was the cause of the issue, but so far I didn't have any crashes or freezes or kernel panics.

 

I'm glad you like my working station! :D

Your setup is awesome buddy. I’m not so sure about the Dustbin Lid Pro sitting to the right or your hack though...:hyper::hyper:

 

When a ups starts go to bad they tend to fluctuate really badly so that would explain your problems. Put a meter or a scope across your ups and see if it’s holding steady?

@AudioGod hahahaha :lol: I only use it for trading now :P:P It had its good days, not it's time to rest :P

 

Well, it was new, but I guess it had issues, I will buy a meter. I always say that I will, but I always pass by the store without me buying it lol I also had a power regulator plug, and when I removed it with the new UPS things got much better, so I guess that might also play a small role to the whole issue. At least now I'm able to gank people in WoW without the fear of my screen turn off :lol:

Just bought this....

 

 

same card here, works perfect. 

 

Hint: do not operate your hack in very low distance to your router/access point - it involves bluetooth and you might get mouse lagging

I enabled Wifi but not logged in WLAN, just for Airdrop operating.

Worked 100% OOTB with AudioGod's EFI, without any additional kexts.

It says 45days on my order but the package appears at my door around 7-10 days. Any slowdown is due to custom. Some how US custom is faster than EU haha. 

 

@AudioGod I finally get a chance (or a reason) to change my case: radeon VII runs too hot on my old case, so I get the coolermaster H500M. are all USB type C ports working with your efi (one the in back and one through the motherboard header? I haven't tested them all).

I just tried this EFI build and it works great istat menus, iMessage, handoff, all working as they would on a real Mac.  Well done.  I'm only having an issue with "instant wake" when it goes to sleep.  Worked fine with the tweak on the Aorus Z390 Pro Glasgood build, for my Corsiar aio.  I was wondering if that fix is still valid for this implementation.  I don't want to have a non bootable pc by going about this the wrong way.  Thanks.

I’m glad it’s working for you buddy.

as for the Corsair AIO,

disconnect it’s internal usb from the motherboards internal header. 

You don’t need it as it does nothing in MacOS and only works via windows so if you want to change the fan speeds or colours just reconnect it and boot into windows, do your thing and remove it again.

i think that is the best way to deal with it buddy. :)

yeah must be the drivers, both bands work fine for me or actually have you checked for interference?

@ilcondannatotry changing frequency for the 5g band on your router?

use a WiFi scanner and look and see what’s around you?

      Hi, i can someone help me with installing mac OS Mojave on my HP ENVY - 15-as102na?
      I have an imac to use for setting up my usb & installing MacOS Mojave.There are various kext files etc that i'm not sure about and need some help as some are hardware specific.
      I tried previously but got stuck on an apple logo and couldn't get past that, and tried today and had problems with Clover.
      Once i get mac os on my 128gb m.2 ssd ( which i'll upgrade to either a 256gb or 512gb depending on how well this hackintosh works)
      I have a free 2.5" inch hdd bay where i'd like to install windows on in the future.
      I think i may have to replace my wireless card ( based on a few google results) which i'm fine with as long as i can see it working without just so i know i won't waste money
      Specs:
      Cpu: i5 7200u
      GPU: HD 620
      8GB ram
      Wifi card- Intel Wireless 7265 ( Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) )
      Motherboard - HP 81D2 & BIOS version is f.56

      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:
