      Hi..i would suggest you to upgrade to latest version. In my case i found that beyond the missing GPIO port/interface on the logic board, the EFI firmware would also need to initialize the hardware for the OS.No one has been able to add thunderbolt to an Intel x58 based system. Mac, PC or otherwise. Although I could be wrong.
