AudioGod's Gigabyte Aorus X570 Pro, Pro WIFI, Ultra, Big Sur OpenCore EFI


47 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is my first fully functional Ryzen Hackintosh after many many years of intel builds and when I say fully functional I mean just that.
Everything is working bar SideCar of course as there's no IGPU and I'm using SMBios iMacPro1,1 but as for everything else goes like proper sleep, Wake, All iCloud functions, Handoff, AppleWatch Unlock etc etc all works beautifully.
I have fully mapped out USB manually on all ports and there's no micro stutters or freezes or anything else strange that you can think of.
 
A big huge Thank you too @Shaneee For he's amazing patches and help when I needed it and a I couldn't put up a thread like this without showing my respect to the jedi master @MaLd0n, You both rock :guitar:
 
PLEASE NOTE - 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.

OpenCore EFI Update V0.7.1 - 05/07/2021

Gigabyte X570 Pro 7,1 071 EFI.zip - OpenCore v0.7.1, SMBios MacPro7,1

 

SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 Conversion Kit - 07/06/2021

Gigabyte X570 Pro 1,1 Conversion Kit.zip

 

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 0.7.0. Use the new Config.plist instead.

 

Note 5 - The SmallTreeIntel82576.kext is not working under Monterey 12.0 so if you plan on playing around with the new OS for now make sure you use the 2.5GHz ethernet port or WiFi instead.

@AudioGod Congratulations!!! Excellent article, as usual.

XHC2 is a PCIe card with USB2 ports?

No XHC2 is one of three of the motherboards onboard usb controllers. Thanks to that it allows me to open up every USB port without getting close to the port limit.

Ok. Of course, you are not short of USB ports :)

@MaLd0n Did I put this in the right section on the site?

I wasn’t sure if to put it in the instal guides along side my other two threads or on the AMD part where I have it now.

If it’s in the wrong place could you move it to the correct part of this site for me please buddy?

@AudioGod OMG I'm such a duffus! In your other thread I said I had an Aorus X370 Pro MB, I don't, it's an X570 same as you!! So I've switched to your EFI folder and all seems to be working well as expected, you have quite a few more SSDT's & Kexts in your EFI than I did e.g. the only SSDT I was using was SSDT-EC-USBX-DESKTOP & your extra kexts seem mainly to be around power management & USB. So hopefully I'll notice some improvement but it all seemed to be working well with my EFI but then again it's not my main rig & I've never pushed it in hackintosh mode.

If you check energy saver your see all options are there and fully functional, this is because of SSDT-PLUG & SSDT-SRBG

If you shut down or sleep the system your notice how quickly is does it, this is a mixture of SSDT-SBRG and me correcting the smbus via SSDT-SBUS-MCHC that in turn also ensures the correct voltages are being displayed to the board and cpu. 
SSDT-XHC is mapping out the X570 triple usb controller correctly and renaming them and USBMap.kext polishes it off.

I did all the SSDTs myself bar EC-USBX and it involed a lot of research and figuring out every peace of the puzzle until I got it to the point I have now.

Compare for yourself buddy and see. :) 
 

@jimborae When it comes to the OpenCore guide, they don’t really support AMD and this is why they give it one tiny chapter in the whole guide and only give details on how to get up and running with a RyzenPro but don’t go into great detail or give you ready made tools to make it easy like they do for Intel so the polish involves some real work...lol...anyway you compare and tell me what you think?

Thanks for the reply AG, I have found my first issue though and it's around the front usb ports, the USB 3 ports are dead, these are extended/powered from the USB 3.1 port on the motherboard. Not had time to fire up hackintool to see what's going on yet but I'll have a look into it when I have more time.

switch to the other internal usb3 header please.(theres 2)

I have mapped out usb3 internal 1 and shut off 2

 

usb-c should be fully functional, I did a backup this morning via the front usb-c port.

what were you trying to run off it?

I could have it setup wrong in the kext.

It was a USB 3 stick I was checking the USB ports, I'll try to have a look at it in morning to see what's going on. I'm old & tired and can't honestly remember what is hooked up to what right now. So I'll pull the rig out and confirm what is connected to what re the USB ports. :)

Im guessing you plugged your internal USB3 header into internal 2 instead of 1. As soon as you switch it over it will spark the inputs back into life. They are right next to each other on the board. Why there’s two to start with baffles me and is totally pointless and I’ve never heard of anybody that’s used them both or a case that makes use of them so that’s why I shut one off. I can turn it back on and have both enabled if you prefer but it’s a little bit pointless?

Yep I had them plugged into the wrong internal USB3 header. :) Now swapped over & they're working, thanks AG.

@AudioGod By the way, don't know what revision you have of this board, (mine's v1.0) but have you noticed that it seems that it was originally designed to work/support with the TB3 TitanRidge card? If you notice there is on the board PCB, just above the SATA ports, the labelled connection for TB3, the pins are just missing. I'd heard that later revision of the board does indeed fully support TB3 but I can't find any evidence to support this. What  i can tell you though is that with the Titan Ridge card installed I was able to connect to my LG 5K Ultrafine monitor in 5K over Thunderbolt 3 even without that connection.

Wrong thread buddy.

This thread is for x570 Pro not Z390 Pro

  • 2 weeks later...

Just a quick note and update for anybody that’s interested.
I am going to change my motherboard over from the gigabyte X570 Pro to the X570 Ultra. As far as I can tell the EFI I made is spot on for the ultra board aswell bar the USBMap.kext so i Will expand the thread To include USB mapping for X570 Pro, Pro WiFi, Ultra and Elite and maybe even the X570 Master too.
This will happen with the release of OpenCore 0.6.5.

OpenCore EFI Update V0.6.6 - 04/02/2021

Gigabyte X570 Pro 066 EFI V2 040221.zip OpenCore v0.6.6 V2, SMBios iMacPro1,1

 

 

IMPORTANT BIOS CHANGE

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

 

OPENCORE HAS CHANGED THE WAY THE BOOTSTRAP WORKS SO YOU WILL NEED TO RESELECT YOUR BIG SUR DISK (F12 DISK SELECT OR FROM WITHIN THE BIOS) AND THEN RESET YOUR NVRAM BEFORE BOOTING INTO THE NEW EFI FOR THE FIRST TIME, THIS IS VITAL.

 

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.

 

04/02/21 - I have done a small update to the 0.6.6 EFI adding new AMD Patches so its compatible with Big Sur 11.3.
If you downloaded the EFI before the 4th then download the new V2 EFI and replace the old one. This way you will have no problems using Big Sur 11.3 now in beta form or when its released officially.
