X299 Designare Thunderbolt


Recommended Posts

Hello all, just built my first hackintosh thanks to the incredible guides and rescources here.... so thankyou for that. Managed to get past most issues without asking any questions! :D


But no thunderbolt yet... I bought the Designare because it has TB baked in, was under the impression i did not need to install Windows to get it going, am I wrong about this? Don’t mind installing W10 but was avoiding it unless mandatory. If it isn’t a Windows issue then I’m sure I can google harder and follow some guides, but would love a point in the right direction...


TB connection powers my TB drive but obviously doesn’t show. The about Mac system menu show thunderbolt no drivers installed...


Thanks in advance for your time people...

Thanks maldon... realise that’s a dumb question. Managed to figure it out eventually... got the thunderbolt drive working on windows, but now booting back into OS X (with the drive plugged in before powering on) no joy.... any ideas ?

Okay we seem to be making progress!! The disk mounted!!! But after a reset it’s gone again. And trying again from power off still no luck. I will experiment and get back to you. Thanks for all your help again man. Killing it over here :D

Okay so real progress being made here! It’s now working with the drive, I even have ..... HOTPLUG. With an experimental SSDT I found, let me know if you want the link?


But you deserve a lot of credit Maldon for getting my entire machine going (I used your clover for install and it worked much better than anything else). I have also found you to be the most helpful hackintosh rebel I have ever met on the web, so genuinely thankyou for not just the work you’ve put in to get my machine running, but clearly the work you’ve done over the years to gain the knowledge you so clearly demonstrate.


I’m a full time record producer/mix engineer based in London, please let me know if you ever need any advice/assistance with anything musical....


I now have to choose the right audio interface. Wanting to go with antelope audio but been reading about connectivity problems with hack... UAD Apollo seems rock solid, just so expensive... we’ll see...


Muito obrigado!
