ASUS PRIME Z690M-PLUS D4 - i9 12900KF - 128GB RAM - AMD RX 5700XT - Thunderbolt HotPlug - OpenCore

Overview


ASUS PRIME Z690M-PLUS D4 Build featuring Latest Intel Core i9 12900KF, Thunderbolt 3 and AMD RX 5700 XT using OpenCore. This Build is especially for Music Production offering multiple Thunderbolt ports supporting daisy chain, Cinema Display for a robust workflow. This guide can be used as a reference for any 600 series Motherboard with very few changes.

Comments


The Build
As the new 600 series Motherboard is out, I decided to test it and check the performance on a Hack. The idea of this build is to utilize Thunderbolt and use it for production.

Due to the easy availability of Z690 and the number of NVMe slots that were needed, the ultimate choice was ASUS Z690M-PLUS D4. It's a mATX motherboard offering support for 12th Gen. CPUs. PCIe 4.0 supports a faster data transfer rate. Along with all these, the motherboard supports 3x PCIe 4.0 NVMe and built-in WiFi.

On this Motherboard, the Audio Codec is not so great, offering ALC897. In addition, this Motherboard only offers 4xSATA 6.0Gb/s ports. An addition of 2.5Gb/s LAN would make it awesome but considering the budget, it's still a good go as these two were not the needs for this build.

Not working

Everything works like a charm.

Bootable Media Creation


To create Bootable USB for macOS Big Sur, follow the steps below.

1. Download macOS Big Sur from App Store.
2. Plug USB to your system.
3. Open Disk Utility and erase the USB Flash Drive with following parameters
4. Close Disk Utility.
5. Open Terminal and type:
Code:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Big\ Sur.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB
6. Enter your password
7. Press (Y) to confirm and then press enter key and it will start to erase the disk and will create macOS Bootable USB.

Once the process completes, close the terminal. The USB Flash Drive will be renamed as Install macOS Big Sur

Note :
  • At this point, the bootable USB can be only used to boot Mac only. In order to boot the computer using the USB, follow the steps below.
Preparing OpenCore Bootloader


To prepare OpenCore boot loader, you need to download OpenCore.
Download the Release folder followed by the release version.
When extracting, you'll get 4 folders which has been listed below.

Installing OpenCore EFI


Now, as the EFI is completely prepared, it's time for the installation of OpenCore on the Bootable USB Flash Drive.

1. Mount the EFI partition of your Bootable USB Flash Drive.
2. Copy the EFI from your working directory to the EFI partition of your Bootable USB Flash Drive.

Now you’ve successfully installed OpenCore, the required drivers, kexts, and config.plist and the USB Flash drive is ready to boot off your computer.

Installing Thunderbolt Card


The next step is to install Thunderbolt Card.

PCIe SlotPCIe Device
Slot 1AMD RX 5700 XT
Slot 2None
Slot 3None
Slot 41xGIGABYTE GC-Titan Ridge v2.0


Notes:
  • The Titan Ridge Card will have the THB_C Cable jumper and USB 2.0 Header connected.
  • The Titan Ridge card is flashed with NVM33 custom firmware.

UEFI Settings


The next step is to configure the BIOS. To access your BIOS/UEFI, press and hold Delete key on your Keyboard and then set the following.

SettingsValue
SATA EmulationAHCI
Network BootDisabled
Virtualization TechnologyEnabled
Legacy SupportEnabled
Secure BootDisabled
Fast BootDisabled

Once the UEFI is set up, Save & Exit Setup.

For Thunderbolt Settings, refer to the guide linked below.

Installation


The installation step is simple.
Plug your Bootable USB Flash Drive to the target system.
Turn on your system.
3. Boot to Boot Menu using F12
4. Select your USB Flash Drive with the UEFI prefix and press enter to boot.
5. When at OpenCore menu, select ResetNVRAM and boot from it.
6. Repeat step no. 5.
7. When at OpenCore menu, boot using Install macOS Big Sur. It will take couple of minutes to boot into installer screen. Once you reach the installer, select your preferred language and continue.
8. On top, click on Utilities and then select Disk Utility.
9. When at Disk Utility, click on View and select Show all Devices.
10. Select your target SSD. Do not select the partition
11. Click on Erase button and erase the drive with following parameters.

NameMacintosh HD
FormatAPFS
SchemeGUID Partition Map

12. Close Disk Utility.
13. Select Install macOS and continue with the options.
14. Select Macintosh HD and click on Install.

This will take a couple of minutes and will restart at "Less than a minute is remaining". Upon completion, the system will automatically restart. The System will restart to complete the installation. Here ends the first phase of the installation.

After installation, boot it using USB, but this time select Macintosh HD.
The first boot may be slower as the caches are not built yet. Once the caches are built, it will boot normally.
When you're at the welcome screen, continue with the basics options such as Keyboard setup, Network, Computer Account, and Privacy settings.

Now the installation is complete, but the drive isn't bootable yet. You need to complete the Post Installation

Post Installation


Now, configuring the Post Installation. There is not much to do for the post-installation except configuring Thunderbolt 3 Hotplug and the boot from the system drive. Everything rest is fully functional.

Thunderbolt 3 Hotplug
As of now, the Thunderbolt already works with the exception of HotPlug. To implement the Hotplug, follow the steps below.

1. Open IOReg and find the Thunderbolt Node. For PCIe Slot #4, the address is PC00.RP21.PXSX
2. Grab the Thunderbolt Titan Ridge SSDT from 3. Adjust the address in the SSDT.
4. Save the SSDT.

For more depth information on Thunderbolt 3, refer to the guide linked below.

Boot from System Drive
This is one of the most important part as it allows to boot it using the system drive without any need for installation USB. By using this method, you’ll be easily able to install the OpenCore Boot loader on your System Drive.

1. Mount the EFI Partition of your System drive and the Bootable USB. Both the EFI partition of your Hard Drive and USB Flash Drive will be mounted on your Desktop.
2. Assuming that you’ve mounted your EFI Partition, continue the following.
3. Open your EFI Partition of your Hard Drive.
4. Select EFI folder and then move to Trash.
5. Open your EFI Partition of your macOS Bootable USB.
6. Copy the EFI folder from your macOS Bootable USB to your EFI Partition of your Hard Drive.
7. Download the SSDT-DTPG.
8. Copy SSDT-DTPG and Thunderbolt SSDT to ESP/EFI/OC>ACPI
9. Open your config.plist and add the SSDT entries.
10. Save your config.plist

Restart your System
After completing the post-installation, restart your System

Could you also send me your EFI please? I couldn't get this board working. I'm used to AMD configs.
I don't have an EFI folder. Request from the topic owner in the forum...
