Asus Z490 MAXIMUS XII FORMULA 10700k RX 5700

Hackintosh OpenCore EFI For Asus Z490 MAXIMUS XII FORMULA

Alert:

This hardware configuration is not perfect because there isn’t any iGPU support for this motherboard.

Avoid ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME/FORMULA/APEX if you need Sidecar/iGPU etc..

iGPU for these 3 boards aren’t powered at all.

But anyway, I’ve left the relative configs there already. For more help on iGPU setup, please visit Here

@jergoo https://github.com/jergoo/Hackintosh-ROG-STRIX-Z490I/ This repo was used in my MacOS installation flash drive. I just changed a few things based on it.

Tools used:

  • OpenCore Configurator
  • Hackintool

The following changes are made:

(on jergoo’s repo)

With OpenCore Configurator

  • [NVRAM -> 7C43…] boot-args:
    • [Update] agdpmod=pikera
      • Reason: agdpmod was set to ‘ignore’, only one HDMI and one DP have signal.
    • [Append] darkwake=2
      • Reason: ‘Sleep’ will shutdown the system
  • [DeviceProperties]
    • [Rename] change the PCIe address of the Intel I225-V
    • [Update] layout id for S1220(ALC1220) is 1 on this MB
  • [Kernel]
    • [Disable] USBPorts.kext
    • [Enable] USBPorts-All.kext

With Hackintool

  • [Power] -> Fix Sleepimage
    • Reason: ‘Sleep’ will shutdown the system

Verified working parts/functions/apps.

  • Dual Display (Video and Audio, on HDMI and DP)
  • Sleep/Wake-up/Shutdown/Restart
  • Two LANs under 1000Mpbs
  • Audio output from ALC1220, with Boom3D
  • GPU (5700xt)
  • Most USB ports (Speed test not performed)

Problems:

  • iGPU and Sidecar are not working. due to the nature of this motherboard design.

Known bugs

Conditionally No Sound from ALC1220

  • When you
    • Installed Windows in another disk
    • AND installed the additional Realtek Audio Driver
    • AND warm restarted into MacOS from Windows

Ref: Discussion from tonymacx86

Fix: Cold restart when switching into MacOS from Win.

Kernel panic cause by GPU

com.apple.kext.AMDRadeonX6000Framebuffer

This happened once when I power on my second LCD screen. Kernel crashed followed by a restart.

To reproduce it, you will need more than one monitor. randomly toggle their power buttons quickly will trigger this error.

So, do not trigger too many desktop resize(when a display is turned on/off/unplugged/replugged) in a short period of time. I would say 3 times within 5 seconds is dangerous.

(Power Nap is disabled)

Unstable DP audio output

In a 10 seconds timeframe, there will be 0.5 seconds with no sound on average.

More bug?

I will keep you posted.
