AudioGod's Aorus Z390 Master Patched DSDT EFI for Catalina Mini Guide and Discussion

1,307 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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 F11c, 9900k with a 5700 XT but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware

 

CPU's

8600K, 8700, 8700K, 9400K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K, 9900KS (All KF Models work but use SMBios iMacPro1,1 instead)

 

GPU's

RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, RX 5500, 5500 XT, 5600, 5600 XT, 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)

EFI FOLDERS  

please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F11c to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision

CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 

Current EFIs Updated 01/06/2020

Spoiler

Clover and OpenCore EFI Updates (10.15.5 Ready), 1st June 2020 

(Use With Bios Revision F11c)

 

 

The EFIs and DSDTs have now been updated to the my latest versions.

Changes made include,

AppleALC 1.5.0

Lilu 1.4.5

WhateverGreen 1.4.0

VirtualSMC 1.1.4

IntelMausi 1.0.3

Clover Updated to Revision 5118

OpenCore Updated to Revision 0.5.9

OpenCanopy is now Enabled as Standard

Plus other major tweaks and changes to all of the configs

 

 

 

Clover EFI Update v5118 - 01/06/2020 Use with Bios revision F11c Only or Replace with the older F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios

 

Clover Z390 Master Navi Vega EFI 010620.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT EFI

Clover Z390 Master Polaris EFI 010620.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) DSDT EFI

 

Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.

 

Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.

 

 

OpenCore EFI Update v0.5.9 - 01/06/2020

Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.

 

OpenCore 059 Z390 Master 19,1 010620.zip - OpenCore v0.5.9, SMBios iMac19,1

OpenCore 059 Z390 Master 1,1 010620.zip - OpenCore v0.5.9, SMBios iMacPro1,1 (IGPU Disabled)

 

Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.

Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.5.9. Use the new Config.plist instead.

 

 

PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)

 

Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following

PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11c Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :



 249434888_Screenshot2020-01-16at19_26_02.thumb.png.948834bc41d84df577e126ae92c9d773.png

 

 

CFG Unlock (MSR) F11c BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 

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

Spoiler

I have 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.



F11c MSR Unlocked Profile.zip - Use with Bios Revision F11c ONLY

 

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

7 - 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. 

 

If you want to use Bios F10 instead then use this profile

MSR Unlocked.zip - Use with Bios Revision F10 ONLY

 

 

ADDITIONAL DSDT's (A big thanks to @MaLd0n for compiling these DSDT's)

Spoiler

DSDT's

If your using a Vega 56/64 Navi or Radion VII then use this DSDT (already installed in my EFI)

 - DSDT For use with Bios F11c Only

DSDT.Vega.zip - DSDT For use with Bios F10 Only

If your using a RX Series or Nvidia GPU then use this DSDT (already installed in my EFI)

 - DSDT For use with Bios F11c Only

DSDT.RX.zip - DSDT For use with Bios F10 Only

 

 

To Create Your Own Patched DSDT Message @MaLd0n using the link bellow

https://www.olarila.com/forum/17-dsdt-patch-requests/

(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 great job, it's helpful for me :) with 9700K.

 

I've just update BIOS F9 to F10: there is no more usual settings as BIOS, MIT, peripherals, etc 

 

Help: Aorus splash screen at start is too big (Gigabyte logo, bottom text). I don't remember the solution.

 

EDIT: AppleUSBXHCI errors "Unsupported speed mantissa" detected. Terminal file in attachment

Unsupported Speed USB mantissa

reset the bios by pressing the bios reset button on the back of the board above the usb2 ports, then go into your bios and load bios defaults and then use the new bios settings I have listed in the guide and try again and let me know buddy. Don’t do any other changes to the bios then what’s listed. 
also for the Aorus splash try having CSM disabled if it’s enabled or enabled if it’s disabled.

I've already load BIOS defaults after update to F10. Idem: I use your BIOS settings. Same problems with  AppleUSBXHCI errors "Unsupported speed mantissa" detected.

 

EDIT 1: I found a solution to disable Unlock CFG (MSR) since F9. I read it"s better for Aptiomemoryfix

EDIT 2: CSM disabled or enabled, same big Aorus splash. I can't remember the solution. I search.

let me know the solution for the Aorus splash buddy.

And What’s the solution for disable unlock CFG that you found?

 

im looking into your error so bare with me but at what point is it happening and does it happen with no devices connected to usb?
are you using the Rx EFI or the vega one?
 

p.s. I update the thread bios settings under an hour ago, did you use them?

First, I don't see Update BIOS settings in this thread.

 

For unlock Hidden CFG function, I found a chinese method: I post a personal message to you with link. 

 

I can boot but 'Unsupported speed' mantissa errors (5 or 6) occur with or without connected devices.

 

Right, I try the RX EFI because I've a RX 580.

Well I’ll be posting here for now on.  Switched to the Master.  Boredom gets the better of me.

 

 I’m having some issues with the UEFI for RX.  Random freezes which reboots my machine and just had the attached image happen during boot.

oh dear,

Have you got CSM disabled in the bios?

Are you using the correct DSDT for the RX gpu and bios F10 for the Master?

 

i will send you a modified EFI later today to try. :)

do you want it in macpro1,1 or iMac19,1?

I think it may have been an issue with my memory.  I set my xmp profile but I don’t think the board was setting the proper voltage 1.35 so I set it manually.  Now I have to get iMessages working again since I think the new MAC address alarmed Apple.  I’ll try the 19,1.  I also had removed pikera and cfmon flags from boot args.

here's my current 1,1 EFI so if 19,1 fails you then swap over to this one and give it a try, il make all new details for you including a new serial number so register it as a new login on iCloud :)

edit:  Well I think I figured out what was causing the issues with lag and random freezes on my machine.  I think my PCIE Extender gave up on me.  Plugged the GPU straight to the board and no more lag or random glitches.  Hallelujah.

 

Let this be a lesson, make sure your hardware is working properly before assuming it's improper configuration.

At the moment I'm on 1,1, your EFI you made for me.

That was pulled directly from my system and what I use personally.

i prefer 1,1 as I can’t stand the igpu being enabled. It sucks...:hysterical:

you can remove the virtualsmc.efi from UEFI, I left in there by mistake as I was testing to see if it actually did anything different with it in and it doesn’t so keep it or don’t keep it it’s totally up to you. :) 


@Matgen84 Are you playing with OpenCore at the moment and have any working knowledge with it cos if you do I could do with a couple of tips and pointers?  :blowup:

I don't use OpenCore, just read the configuration files, test without success some config.plist files few month ago. So I can't unfortunately help you.

 

Just my opinion: this bootloader is very well documented, but too difficult to set.  Regular additions (it's a beta) do not help. I'm waiting for the release. :)

would you like to try mine?

i have a beautifully working OpenCore EFI that me and MaLD0n put together the other day. It’s not finished yet as it has a few fixes I need todo but it’s working perfectly with Catalina just don’t try to boot into windows via the opencore boot menu

...ops...lol

Well I believe I am now finally set with my rig on 19,1.  Unless I deliberately look for something wrong all looks to be working well (except iMessages..lol). Safari for Netflix can go die somewhere.  I don't watch Netflix on my PC either way to be bothered with it anymore.

 

Thanks for all the help AudioGod, larabee, and others I may have missed.

 

edit:  Actually, is there any way to get 144 on my Acer Gsync monitor?  Highest I can set it to is 120hz on MacoS.  Maybe because it's now paired with a AMD card...

Check your monitor is using the correct colour palette.

I use a Dell 75hz 4K HDR monitor that uses RGB as it’s colour pallet and macOS was setting as ycbcr and I only found out because I was getting weird green flashes on shutdown and it was also causing my clover boot splash to b stuck on one res no matter what I set it (CSM disabled) and also I couldn’t go above 60hz or 2k in res. As soon as I patched the monitor override it snapped back to normal and now everything works perfectly and no more green flashes and I can change res of the splash plus I can select 75hz

to check if it’s happening to you go into the monitors setting and see if it’s colour palet is set correctly, if you can’t tell that way then go into about my Mac and check under graphics and displays and see what pallet it’s using.


If that is indeed the problem for you then it’s easy to fix just click on the link and read and follow the guide. If you have trouble doing it then let me know and il help you out but you should be cool buddy :)

@hungrywallet If you have a High DPI display (>1080P) then you will need to add -cdfon as a boot argument in the clover config, this enables WhatEverGreen's pixel-clock patches and allows for higher display resolutions and refresh rates on High-DPI displays.

 

For Netflix please also add shikigva=1 to the boot arguments restart and try again, If that don’t work then try shikigva=57 instead.

 

let me know if that sorted it out once you have tried? :thumbsup_anim:

shikigva=1 only fixes Apple TV for me so I'll try 57. -cdfon is already enabled but do we need agdpmod=pikera for an RX580?

 

Also, could you make me a custom DDST for this board like you did last time?  I'll try to figure out how to do it on my own in the meantime so I can learn.

The dsdt is already perfect for your board unless I gave you the vega one by mistake 


DSDT.RX.zip

 

you can remove agdpmod=pikera :thumbsup_anim:

      I'm transitioning from Clover to Opencore. I thought the process will be simpler but it turns out it isn't. I have created a bootable Catalina USB with Opencore but stuck at this error. I have attached my EFI and the verbose output. Anyone please provide some guidance please?

      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the tedious steps or problems of other simlar apps.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install your bootloader of choiche on the usb (or just leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac).
       
      Features:
      - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process.
      - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers).
      - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly).
      - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too.
      - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal.
      - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code.
      - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk.
      - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you.
      - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool.
      - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update.
      - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer.
       
      Features that are planned for future versions:
      - Support for other languages, at least Italian.
       
       (To sugegst a new feature please contact me on github)
       
      Requirements:
      - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer).
      - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer.
      - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).
