Since I created this thread, let me add some brief comments:
- If a Gigabyte X570 board with Thunderbolt support had been available earlier, I would have opted for it without question.
- Because Gigabyte is formally releasing rev 1.1 X570 boards with Thunderbolt headers, I am very very interested in checking them out. I may purchase an entry-level board with a THB_C header.
- I am at the point of completely giving up on ASRock's awful ACPI implementation.
- It's been said that Gigabyte boards tend to be the most Hackintosh-friendly, and I'm beginning to see why. But I'll reserve judgement until getting my hands on a rev 1.1 board.

Hello everyone, thanks for all the hard work!
I have a question since I am trying not to just replace my entire config.plist every time I need to fix something and would really like to learn more on how all of this works. How did you manage to get the Fenvi card working? wifi is working but BT is not.
I also want to experiment setting up the GPU the way you did but I think its best one step at a time. I need to take the time to re read the entire post since its a bit overwhelming for my level.
If your motherboard has on-board WiFi/Bluetooth, we need to disable the USB port on which Bluetooth is connected. Then the Fenvi's Bluetooth module will take over. To disable on-board Bluetooth in macOS, we usually:
1. Identify the USB port on which it's connected. This is done by running IORegistryExplorer and looking through all of the USB controllers: XHC, XHC0, XHC1, etc.
2. Once we've found the internal USB port, we either create a SSDT to disable that port or, if we are using USBPorts.kext, we omit that port from USBPorts.kext.
