I can not take direct credit for all of this. @Hackintosher and @Edhawk here and others else where helped a lot with the troubleshooting. This build is 99.99999% working. The only thing that is not is the USB3 Type C port on the board, as I could not figure out what the port was when making the SDST file, so I simply disabled it, as I did not need it.

Install Procedures
This is for a vanilla build for 10.14.4
  1. Go to https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/ follow this as your general guide, to build your USB installer. USB2 Drives I found work best for the first run through on the board, even though there are USB3 ports, we will get to enabling those in a minute.
  2. Kexts needed all of these will go in to the EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other folder
    1. AirportBrcmFixup.kext
    2. AppleALC.kext
    3. BrcmFirmwareData.kext
    4. BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext
    5. BrcmPatchRAM2.kext
    6. BT4LEContiunityFixup.kext
    7. FakePCIID.kext
    8. IntelMausiEthernet.kext
    9. Lilu.kext
    10. USBInjectAll.kext
    11. VirtualSMC.kext
    12. WhateverGreen.kext
    13. XHCI-200-series-injector.kext

  1. When you install clover on your USB installer
    1. Set Clover for UEFI Booting only
    2. Install Clover in the ESP
    3. UEFI Driver
      1. ApfsDriverLoader
      2. AptioMemoryFix
      3. HFSPlus
      4. You can at this point also put the needed kexts into the USB EFI Folder if you want to
    4. For your config.plist use these screen shots
      1. ACPI - make sure the oder of the list of patches is the same

In Clover\ACPI\ patched
I created SSDT_UIAC to deal with the my USB3 functionality. The only port I could not get to USB3 speeds was the Type C port on the motherboard, I could not figure out what it was listed as, ultimately I disabled the port and am just ignoring it. This file gets all the other ports working just great though.

Archive.zip attached.

There is also a SSDT-XOSI file, that hackintosher built for me initially.
  1. Install your OS - since it is on a USB2 drive, it will take a little bit, enjoy the free time

After it is all installed, everything should just work now
  • Continuity, handoff, airdrop, all good
  • Full Graphics card accelerations

Good luck out there.

This is a gold mine, thank you for uploading these instructions! I want to convert my pc with the same board to a Hackintosh however I am not sure what bios settings you have used. I also am not sure where to find the kext files required

Would appreciate your support.

Check back later this week. I'll make some time to get that up...also there are some tweaks to what I have up there that I should make...nothing critical, you can run what is there and have a fine time...just refinements.

Okay here are the images of my Bios...basically pretty stock and all is working perfectly. I do keep VT-D on, and before everyone climbs on me...it is causing no issues.

as for the kexts start here https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/ as in my write up above. you should be able to get to everything you need from there

some updates I have made are

1. you dont need HDAS to HDEF in your ACPI patches
2. you dont need -rad4200 in boot
3. you dont need -disablegfxfirmware either
