Dude, thanks a lot for your help. I'm writing from a Mac right now. Then I connected the sound myself, only the CPU is displayed incorrectly, I hope this is not critical :D
Congratulations.

As Apple have never supported an AMD processor, it won't display correctly. If you download Hackintool, it should display the correct specs.



Also, check your Bios settings against what is in Dortania as per below.


AMD BIOS Settings
#Disable
  • Fast Boot
  • Secure Boot
  • Serial/COM Port
  • Parallel Port
  • Compatibility Support Module (CSM)(Must be off, GPU errors like gIO are common when this option in enabled)
Special note for 3990X users: macOS currently does not support more than 64 threads in the kernel, and so will kernel panic if it sees more. The 3990X CPU has 128 threads total and so requires half of that disabled. We recommend disabling hyper threading in the BIOS for these situations.

#Enable
  • Above 4G decoding(This must be on, if you can't find the option then add npci=0x2000 to boot-args. Do not have both this option and npci enabled at the same time)
  • EHCI/XHCI Hand-off
  • OS type: Windows 8.1/10 UEFI Mode
  • SATA Mode: AHCI
Also. if you need to start again with a fresh 16GB stick, check out Sunny's (TechTunerLife) guide on Youtube. It goes for 90mins. Well worth it for Noobs.

Awesome man! So glad you got it all working. If you're a perfectionist similar to myself you can do something like this.

Follow Shanes tutorial about changing the CPU name, and if you wanna change the image you can google a tutorial about that :)

Anyway moving forward make backups of your EFI and try to get things to run stable
