Strange thing: I have a big multicore difference between win10 and Catalina with GB4, maybe OS X is written a bit better... I don't know
Things: I cannot turn off CSM support on the mob, in this case my video card won't run, only turns on, when OSX or windows starts up, so I cannot see anything before that, like BIOS or UEFi setup.
And for above 4G decoding CSM must be off on this mono, but I cant .... But tried with my Nvidia CSM off above 4G on, but had the same results.
During the installation I always stucked, froze in the 2 minutes remaining screen. So I have installed Catalina on a real Mac to an external HDD, booted from it, and then carbon copied it into my NVme drive.
Many things are working now:
cpu handling, monitoring, power management
built in bluetooth
i211 ethernet port
2.5Gbs port.... with the Lucy kext I can see it, but there is no data flow
Mainly followed this thread:
What do not works:
Restart or Shut Down
Firewire card not seen by system
After any of these commands, the dock disappears, and computer freezes with the background screen, no reaction
Tried to make a virtual nvram by this:
But as I write tis line, got this error message
root@192 ~ # sudo nvram -c
nvram: Error clearing firmware variables: (iokit/common) not permitted
For me it seems that the SIP is turned on, but the car-active-config 77000000 flag is used. With this flag I have this:
@192 ~ % csrutil status
System Integrity Protection status: disabled (Apple Internal).
With disable SIP FF070000 I have only partial disables.
Seems okay, with the other flags, I always have partial disables.
For me seems, that the system cannot write to the nvram, but iMessages works perfectly
Tried to make a FixShutdown-USB-SSDT, but I cannot find any _PWR in my DSDT, so don't know what to change
Firewire pci card:
This would me mandatory for me to work, have to use it for my Universal Audio interface
On windows it is working fine, and it was natively working in my previous hack builds (with Asus prime z370A, or Gigabyte Z390 Designare with an I7 8086K)
Tried to fix IRQ with SSDTTime, copied aml and merged the plist patches
The UAD software writes: Driver not installed correctly. For them it means, that at the first start I have to allow this program at Security and Privacy at the first start, but there was no option for that. Tried to reinstall several times, but no success.
Again seems like SIP and Nvram problem connection.
In the previous hack builds by default I had my Firewire card in the System profiler/Firewire, showed my 800/400FW ports.
Also tried to force load FW kexts in OC, no success.
Tried both npci=0x2000 and 3000, the same. Without I stuck in PCI CONFIGURATION BEGINS
If my IOreg is needed: (too big to attach here)

Help me to be a happy person with this Monster working
I'm an happy user of a x99 built hackintosch since 6/7 years using it mainly for photoshop and fcpx ... Using new camera with better resolution and video in ProResRaw , my built start to struggle a bit
I'm thinking of making a new built and seeking for advices for this new built that I want evolutive and last at least as long as my previous built
I'll use a SSD M2 forth Generation so I need at least 2 to 3 SSD M2 PCI x4 slots
then which proc to use , I was thinking about the AMD Ryzen 9 3900xt or the Intel I9 10900k ( don't have the money for AMD threadripper ) if you have better idea I'm really open to it as long as you explain it to me
then which chipset should I use:
for Intel , should I go to Z490 or X299 or W480
For AMD , I think I have only the choice of X570
I always used Gigabyte motherboard so it will be naturally my first choice but again I'm open to any suggestion
I need at least usb 3,1 Gen 2 and TB3 is not necessary but an option and can be add later on with a PCI Card I think
So I'll be pleased o read your opinion and the choices that you'll do for the purpose of this built
thanks in advance
Thanks to anyone willing to help me. I've tried different open core versions, adding and removing a lot of kexts, keeping essentials ACPIs, setting as true or false different .plist settings that I saw resolving similar issues as mine but nothing seems to work.
