@gibbo592 I’ve got new DSDTs for F11c i will post them up in the next few hours with a updated MSR unlocked profile for it.

Im just in windows at the moment stress testing for a while but I will do it straight after that. :thumbsup_anim:

Thanks for all your help really appreciate your time helping others

If you wait I while I will update the thread with new A bios profile and DSDTs for f11c, I’m just in the middle of testing now.

 

If MaLD0n fixed the f10 DSDT for you (the old one) then you need to get the 2080ti disabled again using the new DSDT. The old dsdt should not Be used with bios F11c as it’s wrong for the bios, this is why I have had new ones created for this very reason.

 

tbh I would of preferred to of waited for the official release of F11 but because gigabyte has made it go live on all its suport pages for the z390 master it’s pushed me into doing it.

 

 

@AudioGod Thanks for your job. 

 

As your first impression (I suppose), I will wait for the final F11 version before changing my F10 system (works fine). Gigabyte will published others Beta before Release.

I’m abit confused over that one bro as they have never put up a beta bios on all there support threads like they have with F11c And they are not calling it beta on the site too, also I had F11c a good while ago when it was first posted via TechPowerUp and MaLd0n made a DSDT for it for me and it was sending my system mad so I went back to F10. I tried it again now it’s posted all over gigabytes z390 master pages and I got MaLd0n to double check the io reg using F11c via gigabyte using the old F11c dsdt and he redid it as it wasn’t the same.

it could of been a bad flash but I doubt it somehow. Also I was benching via windows and my scores are as good as F10 and in some cases (gpu testing) the score has gone up and it’s not a margin of error thing and I’ve not done a clean boot or anything like that. Before my scores using F11c were worst off due to its microcode. (Maybe I turned it better this time but maybe not, I dunno...lol) Overall F11c is a go. If you overclock then features have returned that were missing, helpful for some if you extreme overclock, not so helpful if you don’t.  
 

That’s my thoughts on F11c,

 

I think you should try it personally (selfishly :hysterical:) as I always value you opinion.

Thanks to consider my opinion ^_^

 

I'm a little afraid to test a beta bios on a working system. On the other hand, because I don't have the necessary elements (new dsdt, msr unlock profile, etc). And on the other hand, I do not know the rollback procedure in case of problems. Then, on other forums including that of Gigabyte  or tweaktown, the reception is mixed for the moment.

 

Could you send me the necessary elements (new dsdt, msr unlock profile, etc). I will see if I decide :drool:

Once I’ve finished testing fully I will do.

believe it or not the system has been under test since yesterday evening and is still going now but I’ve no real problems to report and personally I give it a all clear and thumbs up :thumbsup_anim:

 

its totally safe to use.

DSDT Update For Bios Revision F11c Only

 

These new DSDT's are only to be used with bios Revision F11c and as I am unsure if they are final release or beta still I have decided not to create a new EFI for them just yet. 

 

If you want to use the new DSDT then please make sure you update to bios revision F11c From here or direct from gigabytes website only.
 

I have done over 24 hours of hard testing and benching and I am very happy with the results and stability and I do recommend using the new bios especially if you overclock.

 

PLEASE NOTE - If your using the older F11c beta bios that was posted originally on TechPowerUp then I can't guarantee the DSDT will work right as my older F11c DSDT was incorrect and had to be done again so for this reason I would advise reflashing bios F11c again just to be on the safe side. 

 

Gigabyte Z390 Master Bios Revision F11c

mb_bios_z390-aorus-master_f11c.zip



If your using a Vega 56/64 Navi (5700/5700XT) or Radeon VII then use this DSDT

Z390 Master F11c Vega Navi VII DSDT.zip

 

If your using a RX 5xx Polaris then use this DSDT

Z390 Master F11c DSDT RX Polaris.zip

 

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. :) 

I have also disabled use of any gpu on this EFI so if you own a Nvidia Card it will be disabled in Catalina.

 

Aorus Z390 Master F11c HD630 igpu EFI.zip - Use with Bios revision F11c Only (17/01/2020 UHD630 IGPU Only) SMBios 8,1

 

 

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

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

 

F11c MSR Unlocked Profile.zip

 

You can now skip this step 6 but only if your using my latest EFI 

 

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.

So I finally discovered why I'm not able to boot up with any video signal - I have an issue with CSM disabled.

After I use your profile for BIOS I have to enable CSM otherwise I'm not getting any video signal out of my GTX780.

 

Any idea or that normal because i don't have AMD?

Thanks again for your efforts. Great :)

 

Could you correct your typo in your text: it's F11c not F13c :D

 

One question for the process: 

 

It's necessary to flash BIOS F10 to F11c before using your Profile (who contains settings, etc...). Right!

 

I try and report as usual @AudioGod

@AudioGod

 

All works fine with F11c and new DSDT. :thumbsup_anim:

 

Update F10 to F11c is done. Using your profile is done two.

 

Could you edit your profile with new settings since 3rd January and day after, please Or something change since this date:

 

• Settings -> IO Ports -> DVMT Pre-Allocated -> 64M to 512M

• Settings -> IO Ports -> DVMT Total GFX0-Allocated -> 256M to MAX

 

Since F10, Gigabyte has hidden the serial port option. So we can't disable it in BIOS. :wacko:

Why not bro? I follow only these settings from your posts between 3rd and fifth January. Either settings works, it's the most important.

 

Personally, the resolution is better on BIOS and on Aorus splash screen. I don't know why :)

Oh really? That’s Interesting :) 

I never noticed any of that but I wasn’t looking out for it. I will check on my side and report back soon.

i'm not using any bluetooth or wifi card.. i applied your EFI folder & bios settings everything was fine , but after 3 or 4 hours mouse & system became laggy then , the mac freeze. Idk maybe because i let kernelpm enabled (i use a radeon vii with smbios iMac pro 1,1 & igu disabled)

ah ok,  If you use my EFI under smbios 19,1 with igpu enabled do you have the same problem?

I’m finding 1,1 a little unstable now days myself. I used to use 1,1 and after I swapped over to the 5700xt I started having the same problems under 1,1. The resolve for my system was to use smbios 19,1 instead, all has been perfect ever since,

if you really don’t want to use 19,1 then you can try the last revision of my EFI instead and see if that’s more stable for you under smbios 1,1

Thank you .. if the problem occurs again i'll swap to 19.1 , i've heard that under 19.1 and igpu enabled the radeon Vii will not fully work , is that true ?

no it is fully working the only thing is if you do any processes that involve quick sync the igpu will do the work instead of the Radeon VII but that’s your lot.


also 19,1 gives you fully working Sidecar.

@Matgen84 Tested fully with 

• Settings -> IO Ports -> DVMT Pre-Allocated -> 512M

• Settings -> IO Ports -> DVMT Total GFX0-Allocated -> MAX

 

On my setup nothing changes looks or performance wise. Same results both ways. 

I still prefer the lesser settings just because most people are running on 16gb or less so maybe its best to leave it how I have it.

I will keep my hack on your settings for the time being and see. :)

@Matgen84 Should I use F11c or F10 as the DSDT for it?

I very much prefer F11c TBH

      This guide is a work in progress and will be updated as I refine the installation.
       
      Background
      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) 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.
       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec SMBIOS MacModel MacMini 8,1 Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.  
      Installation Steps: To be provided
      See attached EFI and /L/E kexts in EliteDesk.zip archive See installation methodology here See references here  
      What is not working
      Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).  
      What is not tested
      USB c 3.1 port Microphone port  
      What is working
      Everything not mentioned above Sleep / Wake Multiple displays with IGPU graphics acceleration, hot pluggable display ports and DP->DVI adapters USB 3.1 ports Audio (internal speaker and headphone jack) Ethernet Auto-sensing headphone jack automatically switches to internal speaker when headphones removed  
      Known Issues and their solutions
      (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Unable to upgrade from 10.15.4 to 10.15.5 when using IntelMausiEthernet.kext.  Solution is to switch to IntelMausi.kext (Rev 1.0.2 here). (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Some USB devices were not recognized. My SSDT-UIAC.aml was incomplete and did not specify all required USB port types (missing SSxx ports). The attached EliteDesk.zip archive includes this fix. (Reported this as a possible Clover issue - no solution yet) Clover boot loader may default to Recovery volume after a normal shutdown.  Work-around is to select your normal macOS volume.  This may only happen when Clover is configured to boot LastBootedVolume and may be "fixable" by explicitly setting a boot volume (haven't tested this). (Watching this - not sure it's a problem) At least one display blanks (sleeps) when plugging / unplugging USB device (observed in front USB 3.1 ports).  Display wakes immediately on keyboard and mouse activity, so this is a minor issue but may be indicative of another issue. (Solved - this is a BIOS setting and requires no macOS changes) Safari has problems loading insanelymac web pages after sleep / wake.  I suspect that the problem is with the embedded video on the pages.  Also observed video problem in AppStore after sleep/wake.  Console: VideoDecodersUnavailable.  Solution is to enable Intel ME in BIOS. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Display does not fully wake after resuming from sleep (needs an extra mouse or keyboard stimulus to fully wake).  Solution is to change boot arg darkwake=0 to darkwake=2.  Other values of darkwake may work as well, but this is the first I tried and it worked. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) -disablegfxfirmware boot arg is not required with WEG.  I inadvertently left this boot arg after I encountered an endless gfx firmware update boot loop while working on my FB patching.  This boot arg is no longer necessary after completing FB patching with WEG. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive): Sometimes, CMOS time is lost on shutdown or restart.  Solution is to enable Clover's Apple RTC fix in config.plist. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) headphone jack doesn't work.  Solution is to change HDEF layout-id to 28. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) System freezes on wake from sleep because of a kernel panic related to hda-gfx (my system does not have HDMI and my DP->DVI adapters do not drive monitor speakers).  Solution is to add No-hda-gfx property to HDEF as described here.  This property is recognized as a Lilu flag and prevents loading hda-gfx. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Device (PMCR) is not defined.  Solution is a SSDT that "injects" the missing device. (Solved and included in the attached archive) eficheck is loaded (not sure why this is bad, but may be a privacy issue - see here). Solution is to add updated EFICheckDisabler kext that include Q370 chipset.  See here.

      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger
      - macOS Catalina install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction  This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader
       
      Download the CloverEFI from official repository (used 5099) and install only with these options on "Install macOS Catalina":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - FSInject (I still don't know if it's really necessary)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - ApfsDriverLoader (Support to APFS partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - VBoxHfs (Support HFS/HFS+ partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - Memory fix drivers - AptioMemoryFix (Fix the memory management of de UEFI/BIOS)
      - UEFI Drivers - Additional drivers - NvmExpressDxe (If you are going to use NVMe)
       
      FileVault 2
       
      If you plan to use FileVault 2, you need to download additional drivers, since what comes with Clover is not up to date and use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.
      Follow instructions bellow:
       
      From current Clover installation, check these options to USB keyboard/mouse work on password screen:
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbKbDxe
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbMouseDxe
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      Download the versions 2.1.0 and 2.0.9 of AppleSupportPkg from: https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases
      We need the last version of AppleGenericInput.efi that is inside 2.1.0 and last version of AppleUiSupport.efi that is inside 2.0.9.
      OR download attached bellow.
       
      Put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
       
      That's it! FileVault 2 will work without problems.
       

       
       
       
      Make things works
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below according to your processor version.
      - Put all SSDT-*.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.8.0.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Copy the Clover Configurator to flash drive because you will need later.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC.kext, SMCProcessor.kext, SMCSuperIO.kext and UEFI driver (put VirutalSmc.efi inside /Volumes/EFI/EFI/drivers/UEFI/). I used the version 1.0.9.
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.9.
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.4.
      - Download the AppleALC.kext from here. I used the version 1.4.3.
      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
      - Download the IntelMausi.kext from here. I used the version 1.0.2.
      - Download the SmallTree-Intel-211-AT-PCIe-GBE.kext attached bellow to enable second ethernet.
       
      Important! If you are coming from my previous Mojave guide, please note that I am using some kexts from other repositories / authors.
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM94360CS)
       
      Works out of box (plug 'n' play).
       
       
      Now you can start the installation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock (Geekbench 4: 5840/27384) and another with overclock [5.0 GHz] (Geekbench 4: 6360/30348)
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      Then:
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - Choose the flash drive (white icon).
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press ESC again and select the flash drive.
       
      Choose the internal disk (gray hdd icon) if not already selected.

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.

       
      Post installation
       
      Bootloader

      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to make the system disk bootable.

      Open the Clover Configurator from flash drive that you copied before.

      Mount and open the flash drive EFI partition. (Inside Clover Configurator, Mount EFI -> Select flash drive in Efi Partitions list -> Mount Partition -> Open Partition)
       
      Copy the EFI folder to desktop.
       
      Go back to Clover Configurator, unmount the EFI partition of the flash drive and mount and open the EFI partition of internal disk.
       
      Move the EFI folder from Desktop to EFI partition of the internal disk.
       
      Eject the flash drive.
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition of internal disk to /Library/Extensions and make kext cache, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
      Last thing
       
      Run this command in Terminal to disable hibernation (doesn't work in macOS):
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0  
       
      It's done!
       
       
      System Updates
       
      10.15.2
       
      Before install, update the following kexts:
      - Lilu.kext. I used version 1.4.0.
      - WhateverGreen.kext. I used version 1.3.5.

      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 04/05/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update v5115 - 04/05/2020 - Use with Bios revision F12d Only or Replace with the older F11 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      Clover Z390 Pro Navi Vega EFI 040520.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT EFI
      Clover Z390 Pro Polaris EFI 040520.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 v0.5.8 - 04/05/2020
      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 058 Z390 Pro 19,1 040520.zip  - OpenCore v0.5.8, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 058 Z390 Pro 1,1 040520.zip  - OpenCore v0.5.8, 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.
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      For 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 :
      
       
       
        Default USB Setup For All OpenCore EFIs
      
       
      
       
       

       
       
      PLEASE NOTE - Please flash your motherboard bios to revision F12d to use my current Clover 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 (F12d)

      CFG Unlock (MSR) F12d (F12c Pro WIFI) BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU
       
       
      DSDT's FOR CLOVER ONLY (A big thanks to @MaLd0n for compiling these DSDT's)
       
       
      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)
