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 Pro 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 Pro, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware using Catalina 10.15.1

 

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)

Z390 Pro EFI VEGA Navi Radeon VII F11 DSDT iMac19,1.zip - Use with Bios revision F11 Only (Catalina 10.15.1 Vega, Navi, Radeon VII DSDT Installed) 

Z390 PRO EFI RX F11 DSDT iMac19,1.zip - Use with Bios revision F11 Only (Catalina 10.15.1 RX5XX DSDT Installed)

 

Please Note 

I have reverted the main EFI back to SMBios MacPro1,1 as to many of you are having to many problems getting it to run correctly under SMBios iMac19,1 with igpu enabled. The fix at the moment that works best would be to stop using Aptiomemoryfix.efi and swap the driver over to OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi and this would resolve the memory allocation failures at startup but since the Dev of OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi has pleaded with people not to use this driver in fear of it causing hardware failure I am not willing to use it on the EFI but I have to add that the amount of system failures caused by using OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi is as far as I know a big fat Zero so if you want to carry on using my EFI under SMBios19,1 with igpu enabled and can’t get it to work properly in its current form then that’s the fix to make it work correctly for you.


 

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.

 

Latest Gigabyte Z390 PRO BIOS (F11)

CFG Unlock (MSR) F11 BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 

Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU

Spoiler

@larabee Has kindly made this bios profile for you all to use that will unlock CFG on your motherboard making it play alot more friendly with the NVRam.

It also has all the bios settings listed on this guide pre done and saved onto the profile.

 

MSR Unlocked

 

1 - Download the profile and save it to a USB Key

2 - Go into the bios,

3 - Load the profile, 

4 - Save and exit

5 - Go straight back into the bios and save your bios to a new profile and name it Default CFG Unlocked or something like that.

6 - Reset your Motherboard by removing the power cable and then remove the battery from the motherboard for a minute or two to clear out the bios fully.

7 - Go back into your bios and load back in the saved profile you made,

8 - Boot back into Catalina go into your clover config and under Kernal and Kext Patches Uncheck KernalPM 

9 - Save the changes and then restart and your done, your motherboard will now be CFG (MSR) Unlocked

 

    PLEASE NOTE - If you reset the bios or load bios defaults it will clear the Unlock making CFG Locked again.

Thanks for putting this up @AudioGod. You can also add an RX560 to the list of working GPUs - just noticed my RX560 doesn't show up in the list of PCI devices, but it seems to work fine and shows under Graphics/Displays. I've always had CSM support enabled in my bios without issue, so not sure if that has any effect on the build stability.

Awesome Buddy I will add the RX 560 to the list :)

you sure it’s not hiding at the bottom of your PCI List?

Yeah it's definitely not there:

Try injecting it in Clover and see if it shows up then.

run LuxMark before you inject it and after and compare scores.  

 

Do remember though that the PCI info has no bearing on how your system runs as I’m sure you already know.

Wifi cards won’t show up on it either but we did that on purpose.

Great topic @AudioGod!

 

And thanks a lot for supporting me to get my system up and running again! :D

 

Small tips for those who experience the following issues:

 

1. If you have TP-Link Archer T6E PCI-E WiFi card and your system does not recognise your WiFi card with this EFI, then download and add to your kexts AirportBrcmFixup, that will make your WiFi work again.

 

2. If you have i7 9700K CPU (8700K works fine) but your system shows that you have i9 then in your Clover Configurator go to Cpu -> Type and add 0x0705 code and it will show i7, like so:

3. if you are annoyed by the stretched Apple logo when you boot your computer, it is an easy fix, you have to put your screen's resolution in Clover Configurator -> Gui -> Screen Resolution like so:

@AudioGod, please let me know how can I wake up my computer only from power button and not from any other input device?

 

Thanks!

SLEEP  – Resolving Instant Wake

 

Resolve Instant Wake From Sleep caused by the Corsair H100i V2 AIO Cooler

 

To enable wake using mouse and keyboard the Corsair H100i v2 USB cable must be disconnected from motherboard header F_USB1 

 

 

If you want to keep the Corsair H100i v2 USB cable connected then enable the patch in config.plist, instruction below. 

Hackintosh will then sleep, but can only wake using power button.

 

IF USING CORSAIR H100i v2, OR IF YOU HAVE INSTANT WAKE FROM SLEEP PROBLEM 

THEN

ENABLE PATCH --> XPRW change Method(GPRW...

and download --> SSDT-GPRW.aml and place inside EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched

@AudioGod, cool! I will try it now!

 

UPDATE:

Nope, I prefer continue doing skydiving and scuba, feels safer than this! hahaha

 

If anyone want to try, be my gust! :D

yeah , the diff between Vega and RX DSDT is just 4 lines removed (EGP1) from Vega DSDT

 

Is this cosmetic or functional code ?

 

Anyway, big thanks @AudioGod and @MaLd0n

What exactly this script does?

 

Because I'm not using FileVault, but in the script there are command about

 

Quote

sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0
sudo pmset -a standby 0
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

 

does this change something in sleep/awake or external PSU management?

      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

      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 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.
