Working Catalina on 2990WX but not intel 550T2

Hi. I got Catalina on mine to work fully with an important issue.


this is my spec:


MB: MSI x399 Meg creation


RAM: 64GB cosair veangeance

GPU: Radeon7


All these works perfectly. Except I have an Intel 550T2 10GBps pci card that I need working for my projects.


so far I got the internal Intel I211 working using Smalltree kext. But X550T2 doesnt list in PCI device list and also not in ethernet.


for 550 T2 I tried smalltree8259x.kext. And tried it with FakePCIID and FakePCIID_intel_GbX in kext folder.


I read that I should move these 3 kexts into L/E S/L/E. But with catalina, it seems there is no proper way to do this.


can someone enlighten me?

      I installed MacOS Catalina for about two months ago.
      Everything is working except the DVD Drive.
      During every boot, the computer automatically ejects the dvd tray. And after unlocking a window pop's up saying The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer

      So I took a look inside the disk utility and it is saying that the drive capacity is 3.31 EB ( I created a post regarding this issue before and during that post time the drive capacity was 51.95 Peta Byte. dont know why but the capacity is sometimes changing)
      I tried the DVD drive in windows and it worked correctly and it was working fine in macOS HS and Sierra I didn't have to install any additional drivers or kext for it to work
      This is how it looks (During this screenshot there was an empty 4.7GB DVD inserted

      After ejecting the dvd the size changed

      Does anyone know what's happening?
      Would this affect my HDD and SSD in some way?
      This is my specs

      *Put the script into its own folder as it will create other folders*
      What is BTB?
      Script file to clone and help build Clover or Opencore repos
      Script will create link to itself in /usr/local/bin/bob
      Script SHOULD fix up any stray bobs you may have.
      Then you only need to type bob. and a parameter
      "a" for ACID repo, official
      "d" for ACID repo DUET build
      "c" for CLOVER
      "e" to erase UDK Folder
      Easier typing bob than.....usual stuff

      Hi, I have a small problem with my Open core Hackintosh build.
      I actually got EFI from someone on the internet and tweaked it a bit so I could get up and running.
      Here is my EFI.
      My laptop boots fine but while booting, it shows the apple logo for the first 5 seconds, then goes blank for 2-3minutes and then I see apple login screen.
      This happens every time. I tried a few config edits but didn't work.
      Can someone look into my EFI and suggest any necessary changes that can improve boot times?

      Thanks in advance
