ASUS-PRIME-Z390-A-HACKINTOSH-Clover-iGPU-with-dGPU-UHD630-RX580

Components

  • M/B: ASUS PRIME Z390-A(BIOS Ver. 1005)
  • CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-8700 Processor
  • iGPU: Intel® UHD Graphics 630
  • dGPU: SAPPHIRE NITRO AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB
  • Lan: Intel® I219V, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller
  • WiFi/Bluetooth: BCM94360CS2
  • Audio: Realtek® ALC S1220A 8-Channel High Definition Audio
  • Case: Fractal Design R5 Blackout

Update - 21.04.30

ASUS PRIME Z390-A can not stable with xhciportlimit.

So, I set USB 15 ports(disable HS09, HS10, internal Type-C port and etc.) only.

In Big sur 11.3, Everything works well

Update - 21.04.26

  • Opencore 0.6.8 update(with Whatevergreen.kext).
  • macOS Bigsur 11.2.3
  • Everything works well. Almost done :)

Update - 20.09.10

  • Opencore 0.6.0 update(with Whatevergreen.kext).
  • Still can using Clover also.
  • macOS Catalina 10.15.6
  • Available Netflix(DRM) HD playback in Safari.(WEG & shikigva=80 but, not yet 4K) → Not available with DVI connector :(
  • Just set to default CMOS(using clear jumper or remove M/B battery), if you cannot boot these Opencore EFI(after convert to Opencore).

Caution - 19.12.01

If you update your M/B Bios to 1105 version (or 1201, 1302), after that you’ll show stuck/freeze at booting progress bar.

Error messages like these(ASUS RTC bug related)

  • apfs module start 1393
  • SMCSuperIO: ssio @ detected device Nuvoton NCT679BD(after SMCRTC: start)
  • SMMSensors: [Fatal] ~~~

So, DO NOT UPDATE Bios 1105 or new one. (ASUS doesn’t allow downgrade to 1005 version or below)

But if you had already update your bios, you can use this ACPI DSDT patch as below.

Comment: ACPI Patch
Find: A00A9353 54415301
Replace: A00A910A FF0BFFFF

This patch also works in H370, B360 chipset M/B.

This Hackintosh build guide is NOT GUARANTEE 100% fully working in your conditions.

This guide has been tested on MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 and 10.14.5 and prefers the use of an AMD dGPU for ease of installation. This settings are considered using dGPU(RX580) and iGPU(UHD 630 with Quicksync) simultaneously in specifically the FCPX(10.14.6) and these dual GPUs can nearly full hardware accelerated.(similar to the Headless setting but not the exact same) And this guide can be used on the Gigabyte M/B also. (some settings different)

  1. Set the SMBIOS to iMac 19,1
  2. Change M/B Bios Primary display(ASUS) or Initial Display Output(Gigabyte) to PEG or PCIE(iGPU MUST be turn on)
  3. Apply the Framebuffer patch(Headless) on your Devices setting in config.plist. (check settings as below and recommend using the Hackintool)
platform-id: 0x3E910003(maybe works well 0x3E920003)

device-id: 0x3E91 Intel UHD 630(maybe works well 0x3E92)

Check some options:
	- General: DeviceProperties, Connectors, VRAM, Graphic Device
	- Advanced: Hotplug Reboot Fix(I’m not sure), Spoof Video Device ID, VRAM 2048 MB, GfxYTile Fix

Ref. GUIDE General Framebuffer Patching Guide (HDMI Black Screen Problem) | tonymacx86.com

  1. Remove Whatevergreen.kext on your EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
  2. Done

Summary

As far as I have been able to test, everything works well except Thunderbolt devices.(I don’t have ThunderboltEX 3 or Titan/Alpine ridge add-on card) If you need other detailed settings fot this ASUS PRIME Z390-A M/B, please check released file.(like as USBport) Thanks.
