Go for it buddy. It should work out of the box minus one boot argument. Read the notes and make sure you use the bios settings laid out on page one. 

Enjoy. :)

OpenCore EFI Update (Big Sur 11.3 Ready), 1st March 2021 

The EFI has now been expanded and usb has been fully mapped to included the X570 Pro, Pro Wifi and Ultra. No changes to the EFI are needed for any of the above boards, Just add your info and away you go. If you want to use the internal intel wifi and bluetooth combo card then make sure you download and instal the correct kexts from here. https://github.com/OpenIntelWireless
 

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

Changes made include,

  • AMD Patches Updated for Big Sur 11.3 Compatibility
  • Lilu 1.5.1
  • AppleALC 1.5.8,
  • WhateverGreen 1.4.8,
  • VirtualSMC 1.2.1,
  • OpenCore Updated to Revision 0.6.7 (Big Sur 11.3 Ready),
  • AppleMCEReporterDisabler.kext Dropped (No Longer Needed With Big Sur)
  • USBMap is now universally correct for the X570 Pro, Pro Wifi and Ultra
  • DRM For AppleTV is now fully working,
  • OC 0.6.7 has corrected the SetupVirtualMap Quirk to work with X570 boards again allowing me to Enable it,
  • Plus other minor tweaks and changes to the config.

 

OpenCore EFI Update V0.6.7 - 01/03/2021

Gigabyte X570 Pro 067 EFI.zip - OpenCore v0.6.7, SMBios iMacPro1,1

 

 

IMPORTANT BIOS CHANGE

  • Settings -> IO Ports -> Above 4G Decoding -> Disabled

 

IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE DISABLE ABOVE 4G DECODING IN THE BIOS. I HAVE DISCOVERED A SERIOUS FLAW IN THE GIGABYTE BIOS EFFECTING THE GPU PERFORMANCE AND THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IT WAS TO DISABLE ABOVE 4G DECODING IN THE BIOS AND TO ADD THE BOOT ARGUMENT npci=0x2000 TO THE CONFIG.PLIST.

 

Note 2 - I have decided to fully bypass OpenCore when booting into any other OS other then MacOS so now Windows and Linux no longer see your PC as a MAC and no parts of the ACPI, Patches, MacOS Details or anything else is loaded into any other OS.

 

Note 3 - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.

 

Note 4 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.6. Use the new Config.plist instead.

 

For OpenCore Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following

Finally and as always, MAKE SURE YOU RESET YOUR NVRAM BEFORE BOOTING INTO THE NEW EFI.

Thanks Bud, That’s kind of you to say so.

Its very quiet over here for AMD stuff. Check out my thread over at AMD-OSX where it’s a different story and super busy.

https://forum.amd-osx.com/index.php?threads/audiogods-gigabyte-aorus-x570-pro-pro-wifi-ultra-big-sur-opencore-0-6-7-efi.1344/

 

Hmmm well as it's just you me and some tumbleweeds I'll head over there and check that thread out. :)

 

Problem is everything just works so I don't really have much to say apart from thanks. :thumbsup_anim:

:hysterical: It’s not that bad on the download front for the EFI on here. 0.6.6 did just under 100 downloads. That’s a lot lower then the Z390 Master and Pro EFIs but respectable all the same its just nobody comments on the thread. That’s a good thing I guess as no news is good news.

Over on AMD-OSX however is a different story all together. The X570 EFI is out downloading my Master EFI and nearly matching the Pro EFI and it’s loud on there with voices..lol

Read. Very instructive. And a very very good article, as always.

@AudioGod Awesome build and documentation!  Was Apple Watch Unlock OOB because of the WiFi/Bluetooth card you chose (ABWB BCM94360CS2) or did you need to do/configure something special to get this working with your hack?  Thanks!

Nope it worked totally OOB with no messing around to get it working needed. :)

Thanks for your great guide and your support I just finished installing macOS Big Sur and Catalina on my new X570 Aorus Elite Ryzen Rig

@Cyberdevs You’re very welcome buddy, Anytime my friend. :)
 

If you ever map out a new USBMap.kext could you pass it on to me and I will add it as an option and expand the thread to include the X570 Elite  as well?

You don’t really need to remap usb saying that as XHC SSDT has you covered.

As promised here is my USBMap.kext for my X570 Aorus Elite mainboard it also has my 4 USB3.0 and the USB Type C header ports on Cosmos C700P Black Edition CoolerMaster case. In total I have 13 USB ports active :)

I also attached my version of the EFI folder which is basically a revised version of your EFI :P

Nice one buddy, I will check that out when I finish work.

Why didn’t you map out all USB ports though?

All X570 motherboards have 3 USB controllers with a 15 port limit on each one not in total so you can happily fully map USB with no need to worry about any port limits.

@Cyberdevs Just looking though your EFI and I see you switched to MacPro7,1. I use 7,1 on my X570-E build myself, Good move but also you can drop SSDT-XHC when using 7,1 and use the USB Controllers with no name changes needed keeping it all as true to the original ASPI as you can. Mind you its totally optional as the SSDT works just fine with 7,1 to but its unnecessary. 

You can also drop the Kext SMCAMDProcessor if you want to as I find CPU performance is ever so slightly better without the kext. 

My next Gigabyte X570 Pro EFI release will be minus that kext and with RestrictEvents added to it, I would switch it up to 7,1 as well but the EFI is too popular over on AMDOSX for me to mess with it like that and annoy a load of users so 1,1 stay it must..lol

@AudioGod

Thanks a lot man I'm fairly new to AMD so I'm still learning a lot and your comments are much appreciated I will remove the SSDT and the kext and will do a benchmark to see how much higher it goes ;)

OpenCore 0.7.0 EFI Update (Big Sur 11.5 Ready), 7th June 2021

The EFI has now been expanded and usb has been fully mapped to included the X570 Pro, Pro Wifi and Ultra. No changes to the EFI are needed for any of the above boards, Just add your info and away you go. If you want to use the internal intel wifi and bluetooth combo card then make sure you download and instal the correct kexts from here. https://github.com/OpenIntelWireless

The EFI has now been updated to the my latest version.
Changes made include,

  • SMBIOS Changed to MacPro 7,1

  • Plus other minor tweaks and changes to the config.


IMPORTANT SMBIOS CHANGE - As requested by many the SMBIOS has now been switched over to MacPro7,1 if you want to continue using iMacPro1,1 then all you need todo is replace the USBMap.kext with the 1,1 version and add SSDT-XHC to your ACPI and your Config.plist, Change agdpmod=ignore into agdpmod=pikera and add your 1,1 details. I will add a 1,1 conversion kit to download incase you need it.

Note 1 - I have decided to fully bypass OpenCore when booting into any other OS other then MacOS so now Windows and Linux no longer see your PC as a MAC and no parts of the ACPI, Patches, MacOS Details or anything else is loaded into any other OS.

Note 3 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.7. Use the new Config.plist instead.

Note 4 - If you are using a 6 or Less Core Ryzen then go into the Config,plist and under PlatformInfo->Generic Change the ProcessorType from 0 to 1537, This will list your CPU info correctly inside About This Mac.

IMPORTANT PATCH INFO TO SET THE CORRECT CORE COUNT FOR YOUR CPU
Core Count patch needs to be modified to boot your system. Find the three algrey - Force cpuid_cores_per_package patches and alter the Replace value only.

Changing B8000000 0000/BA000000 0000/BA000000 0090* to B8 <CoreCount> 0000 0000/BA <CoreCount> 0000 0000/BA <CoreCount> 0000 0090* substituting <CoreCount> with the hexadeciamal value matching your physical core count.


Note: The three different values reflect the patch for different versions of macOS. Be sure to change all three if you boot macOS 10.13 to macOS 12

See the table below for the values matching your CPU Core Count.

 

CoreCount Hexadecimal
6 Core 06
8 Core 08
12 Core 0C
16 Core 10
32 Core 20

So for example a 6 Core 5600X Replace value would result in these replace values, B8 06 0000 0000/BA 06 0000 0000/BA 06 0000 0090
Or a 12 Core 5900X that I have it setup as standard would result in these replace values, B8 06 0000 0000/BA 0C 0000 0000/BA 0C 0000 0090


12 Core EXAMPLE
