No, mine is Z390 I Aorus pro wifi mini itx and the battery is in vertical near the Ethernet and usb3 ports

i know what is the battery thx 

Ahhh you have the mini, I didn’t realise sorry then yes your spot on in that case.

if this EFI doesn’t work for you then the differences between the standard and mini must be greater then just the name and size making my dsdt and ssdt no good and it would also explain why your having issues like you are with glasgoods EFI’s.

if that is the case then il point you to the man to make you a new DSDT for your little pro itx board. :)

let’s see what happens with my EFI first of all and we shall go from there.

I'm fascinated to know if it will work for you and your board. :thumbsup_anim:
 

let me know how you get on tomorrow and report back on my main thread so we don’t spam up poor old glasgoods thread. LoL

No WiFi no Bluetooth = no airdrop or Sidecar 

if you do have a combo card then check your info in the clover config or failing that sign out of your iCloud restart and sign back in again otherwise just enjoy :thumbsup_anim:

on a side note, my EFI is not designed for you motherboard so it may be logging many errors under the hood, what you should do just to be safe is get a new DSDT created for your exact motherboard model and then you really will be golden buddy.

use the link below and request a dsdt from MaLd0n :)

(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)

Thanks for this amazing guide. All worked flawlessly. :) 

 

But I have one problem with enabeling FileVault. 

What steps are required to enable FileVault Full-Disk encryption with this setup?

I was stupid and enabled FileVault, but after the next reboot I was not able to book again, Clover does not show any partition. 

 

I then found out that it is required to add kext for FileVault, I did so with a clover USB drive, but I was still not able to boot again into my new hackintosh.

 

What did I wrong, and what is nessasary to use FileVault with your Setup, do you have a guide on this?

 

Thanks.

GiGABYTE AORUS Z390 PRO For BIOS F12d
 

NEW Clover Major EFI and DSDT UPDATE, 15th January 2020 (Use With Bios Revision F12d Only or read below)

 

Important Notice

This New EFI Contains a brand new DSDT made for for the Z390 Pro Bios Revision F12d ONLY,

If you dont want to update your bios and I personally recommend you do then replace the new DSDT with your old F11 DSDT and then you can continue using the F11 bios with the new EFIs.


The EFI and DSDT has now been updated to the my latest version.

Changes made include,

New DSDT's For bios revision F12d ONLY

OcQuirks Revision 12

Whatevergreen 1.3.6

Lilu 1.4.1

AppleALC-1.4.5

VirtualSMC 1.10

MemoryAllocation.efi now added to the UEFI driver folder to fix failure to boot because of memory allocation failures at start up 

Clover Updated too Revision 5103

Plus other minor tweaks to the clover config

 

I have also now created a HD630 IGPU only version of the EFI so for all you people out there that have been asking me for this your wish is my command. :)


 

Aorus Z390 Pro Vega Navi VII F12d EFI .zip - Use with Bios revision F12d Only (15/01/2020 Catalina 10.15.2 Vega, Navi (5700, 5700xt), Radeon VII DSDT Installed) SMBios 19,1
Aorus Z390 Pro RX Polaris F12d EFI .zip - Use with Bios revision F12d Only (15/01/2020 Catalina 10.15.2 RX5XX Polaris DSDT Installed) SMBios 19,1

HD630 Z390 Pro F12d EFI.zip Use with Bios revision F12d Only (15/01/2020 Catalina 10.15.2 HD630 IGPU Only) SMBios 18,1

 

If you prefer using SMBios 1,1 then by all means switch to it but all the old problems of using 19,1 are corrected now with this EFI plus DRM is fully working unless you have a Polaris gpu. Just to add, SMBios 19,1 is the correct one to be using for our chipset and cpu, if you check the spec of a real macpro it is not a using a CoffeeLake CPU or Z3xx chipset. It does work perfectly but correct is correct so 19,1 it is.

 

Please Note, If you use a 5700 or 5700XT then SMBios 1,1 is unstable using the Navi GPUs so please stick to 19,1 with igpu enabled.

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

Big Thanks to @texem for hes countless hours of hard work and help to bring a fully working version of OpenCore using SMBios 19,1 for you all to try.

We have chosen to use N-D-K's Fork of OpenCore as it works happily alongside windows and has a lot of features and changes that I wish were in the original version of OpenCore,

 

Support on this thread for these EFIs won't be great but @texem and myself will help out where we can. 

 

PLEASE NOTE - All bios settings and guide notes are the same for these EFI's and the SMBios is now set to 19,1

You need to get a wifi/bluetooth combo card that is compatible with Mac OS.

Hi...

Very nice and useful guide.

Had to change my mobo from Asus to the Z390 Aorus Ultra due a crash on the Asus.

I followed your guide and everything was good..

Except that I'm getting a boot failure on restart. After that (switching OFF and ON again on) but shows this KP message..

May be you can help to discover why?? Been fighting with this for the past 2 days....

Installation was clean and i9 9900K, Z390 Aorus Ultra, 64 gb mem, Radeon 64 8gb. boot on Nvme Samsung 970 pro 1tb.

Attached the kernel

 

thank you for your time and help

 

Marcelo

Hello,

 

Thank you very much for the guide.

 

Will the guide work with Catalina 10.15.3 and Bios 12d? Those are the last versions available in the app store and the thread for the efi folder

 

Thank you and forgive me if the question is {censored}, I am a total newbie.

 

:)

NEW Clover Major EFI, 14th February 2020 

(Use With Bios Revision F12d)

 

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE

PLEASE NOTE IT HAS BEEN DISCOVERED THAT THE DRIVER MemoryAllocation.EFI IS MADE FROM THE SAME CODE AS THE FREE2000.EFI DRIVER AND IS POTENTIALLY HARMFUL TO YOUR SYSTEM SO I HAVE DECIDED TO DROP THE DRIVER FROM MY EFIs.

 

You will need to preform a full bios reset by removing all power to the system and then removing the motherboards internal battery for a few minutes then put it all back and load back in your bios profile and continue as normal.

 

If you find your unable to boot up with the new EFI and the IGPU enabled then you can try dropping the IGPU memory from 64mb to 32mb or if that doesn't work you can disable the IGPU and change the shiki boot argument to shikigva=144

 

The EFI and DSDT has now been updated to the my latest version.

Changes made include,

New DSDT's For bios revision F12d ONLY

MemoryAllocation.efi Removed

OcQuirks Revision 15

AppleALC-1.4.6

VirtualSMC 1.11

Clover Updated too Revision 5103

Plus other minor tweaks to the clover config

 

Clover EFI Update - 14/02/2020 - Use with Bios revision F12d Only or Replace with the older F11 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios

 

Z390 Pro Navi Vega Clover EFI 140220.zip 14/02/2020 Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT), Radeon VII DSDT EFI

Z390 Pro Polaris Clover EFI 140220.zip - 14/02/2020 RX5XX Polaris DSDT EFI
