Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Ultra i7 10700k RX 5700

Hackintosh Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Ultra

I didn’t find any specific tutorial for this mobo so I decided to share my EFI folder to maybe save someone else some time and frustration ?

⚠️ Please follow the OC tutorial – don’t use my configuration if you have a different motherboard! ⚠️

My configuration:

Part Model
Motherboard Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Ultra, Bios v F6
CPU Intel i7-10700K @ 3.8 GHz
Cooler Scythe Mugen 5 PCGH
GPU Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 5700 XT 8G
RAM Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 64GB @ 3600 MHz
Storage ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB M.2
Wifi Fenvi T919 Wireless PCI
Case NZXT H510i
PSU Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W 80 Plus Platinum

What works:

  • Ethernet – with IntelMausiEthernet
  • Airdrop
  • Sleep
  • iServices (iMessage, Facetime, iCloud)
  • Sound
  • USB (including USB-C)
  • Wifi (Fenvi T919 is natively supported)

What doesn’t work:

  • DRM (Netflix & co) – the solution is to disable the iGPU in BIOS
  • unlocking with Apple Watch as I can’t seem to disable internal Wifi+Bluetooth


⚠️ If you do decide to use my EFI folder, make sure to generate your own serial numbers with GenSMBIOS for either iMac20,1 or iMac20,2 (depending on your CPU) and add them in the config.plist in the PlatformInfo > Generic section: Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Ultra  i7 10700k RX 5700
