Here is the structure of my USB drive named Boot (screenshot). Do you have the boot file in the EFI folder? I also use this to boot my MacOSX Hard Drive. I just copied it over.Sorry I was not clear in the previous message. I have my USB installer done. I have tried my own EFI, which will boot, but the installer crashes. Then I want to try this EFI, but I cannot see the
Install macOS Catalinawith this EFI.
Thanks for the advice. The Carbon Copy Cloner works perfectly.Here is the structure of my USB drive named Boot (screenshot). Do you have the boot file in the EFI folder? I also use this to boot my MacOSX Hard Drive. I just copied it over.
Also, I did not use my Installer USB to install everything. I made a clone of my Catalina Macintosh HD using Carbon Copy Cloner and I just opened the EFI partition and copied the EFI folder to it. It absolutely worked.
Thanks, it works with a clone SSD. I didn't figure out my previous issue (Catalina installer crashes) but get around with cloning. Thanks for the EFI. My sleep has no issue. Just Airdrop seems not working ( I have replaced my wifi card).My EFI is not intended to copy and install but as a reference point. To do the basic install you just need the EC patch, everything else is optional. In your case my scanPolicy does not allow to boot from USB, internal drive only. Set it to 0.
As far as I know (there are very good blog posts about this) the controller is in power saving mode when no device is connected and MacOS does not detect it. Currently the only way to get the onboard chip working is by connecting your device before boot.
I just got a pull request from Xin Jiang with an SSDT that should get Thunderbolt HotPlug working on this board!
I cannot test it at the moment as don't have an TB 2 -> TB 3 dongle at hand (it's in the office I...).

A little further investigation on my TB3 test. I plugged in a true TB3 drive and withouthout going to Windows first, the drive mounted. It is an OWC Express 4M2 enclosure .
