I know this is little bit offtopic, but I still don't understeand those 2 separate files. Really the 6th argument make that difference? I mean
DefinitionBlock ("", "SSDT", 2, "KGP ", "DTPG", 0x00001000) vs DefinitionBlock ("", "SSDT", 1, "KGP", "TB3HP", 0x00000000).

What if all content of TB3HP will be moved into DTPG SSDT with 0x00001000?
That is the region of the SSDT.

Here are few issues
  • The config.plist is not as per the guide.
  • Your system has Intel Ethernet not Atheros. Remove AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext
  • AHCI_Intel_Generic_SATA.kext is likely not needed with your system. Remove it.

Ensure that you have correct BIOS settings for TB.
Do you see any TB devices to work with or it doesn't work with Hotplug?
