MSI mag x570 tomahawk wifi


Hey everyone, this is my first hackintosh. I've been working on it for a week. Everything has been done by following the various guides at Dortania and by browsing google.
I'm happy to announce that, so far, everything seems to be working pretty well. No weird issues has been spotted.

My Build:
  • CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x
  • Motherboard: MSI mag x570 tomahawk wifi
  • RAM: DDR4 HyperX Fury - 32 Go (2 x 16 Go) 3200 MHz - CAS 16
  • GPUs: Sapphire RX480 4go (macOS) | Nvidia RTX 380 Founder edition
  • Case: Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact
  • NVME: 1 Crucial P2 500go (macOS) | 1 samsung 970 evo plus 1to (Windows)
  • PSU: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650 FM
  • Sound: Focusrite Clarett 2pre usb
  • CPU Cooler: Noctua NHD15
  • Case fans: 2 x Noctua NF-S12A PWM + 2 x Noctua NF-A14 PWM
  • Keyboard: Logitech MX Keys
  • Mouse: Logitech MX Master 3
  • OS: Big Sur 11.4 | Windows 10 Pro
  • Bootloader: OpenCore 0.7.0
SSDT:
All SSDTs were built manualy with a dump I personnaly made with opencore.
  • SSDT-EC.aml
  • SSDT-HPET.aml
  • SSDT-SBUS-MCHC.aml
Kexts:
  • AMDRyzenCPUPowerManagement
  • AppleALC
  • AppleMCEReporterDisabler
  • Lilu
  • LucyRTL8125Ethernet
  • NVMeFix
  • RestrictEvents
  • SMCAMDProcessor
  • USBMap
  • VirtualSMC
  • WhateverGreen

Working:
  • Ethernet Port
  • USB
  • iCloud
  • Hardware Acceleration
  • iMessages
  • Sleep & Wake
  • Facetime
  • Sound from the MB (Microphone included!)
  • Wifi & Bluetooth:
    • Wifi & bluetooth are managed by the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 module which isn't compatible with macOS.
    • Two solutions: Buy a new wifi pcie-card or add those kexts:
      • Wifi (AirportItlwm.kext or itlwm.kext + Heliport app)
      • Bluetooth (IntelBluetoothFirmware.kext)
Not Tested:
  • Because I don't have other apple devices:
    • Handoff
    • Continuity
    • Apple Watch Unlock
  • Because I don't have a Netflix account anymore:
    • Netflix DRM on Safari
Not Working:
  • Sidecar (Amd processor, not tested but it shouldn't work)


So this is where it gets weird. Everything is working apparently except for one thing. I can't disable my RTX3080 fe and I need to do it because it prevents my computer to sleep normally.
I've posted an issue on this topic, any help would be greatly appreciated :) :

Update:
  • Internal sound now works fine. Mic input also works.
  • I've manualy created my SSDTs for a better stability
  • Removed AirportItlwm.kext & intelBluetoothFirmware.kext as I don't need them and they are quite unstable. I'm waiting for a BCM94360NG wifi m2 module to arrive in order to be able to use AirPort and stable Bluetooth/wifi natively.

Great to see someone up and running on same Motherboard as me. While I am up and running with a degree of success, I am struggling to get past 0.6.5. Are you able to share your config, and details on how you generated the SSDT files, so I can mimic your setup please.

Thanks

You should start with a fresh opencore 0.7.0 install.
My config.plist has nothing special to be fair, i've just followed the guide at dortania and it worked like a charm.

For the audio tho, if you're using AppleALC, make sure to use the following boot-arg: alcid=51. I don't know why but by using this number, front and back audio and microphone are working.

About the SSDT files, i've just followed the Dortania guide (manual creation). It's very well explained and even if it seems scary at first, it's very easy to do them.
But with just the mandatory one (SSDT-EC.aml) which can be found on the Dortania guide prebuilt, I was able to boot on macOS Big Sur without any problems.

Can you five me more infos on your build? I'll try to help you ;)

Hello. yes I have the alcid=51. I did follow the Dortania guide (around Dec/Jan) but did get thrown by the SSDT stuff. It all works, but I am stuck on an old build of OC. Just need to take the plunge :). Lets see how it goes... I'll go with the fresh start as you say - at worst I can always default back to where I am....
