    [SUCCESS] Intel Core i9 7920X, Gigabyte X299 Aorus Ultra Gaming, GTX 1080 Samsung 960 EVO NVMe

    Hey there - I've been AWOL for quite some time from the forums here. I have an X299 Designaire EX build that's working great on Mojave (thanks to @kgp back in the day). Time for Catalina, I think. Very curious about OpenCore - would you say that it makes X299X builds relatively easy to keep...

    Catalina install on Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi

    Thanks for that info & advice! Up until now, it's basically #1 - stays there & does nothing else. I've been playing around with some BIOS settings, and also trying a lot of the posted EFI folders that closely match my setup (firmware version & using dGPU). Sometimes I'll get through the white...

    Catalina install on Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi

    Catalina install on Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi

    The last 3-4 UEFI builds that I've done have all used this "Other OS" setting. I've got a Z370 board - info is in my signature. I'm currently running Catalina just fine and the BIOS is set for Other OS and CSM=on. Maybe I got lucky! LOL I'm going through this thread & testing out all the EFI...

    Apologies... mis-fire

    Apple Thunderbolt Display + Hackintosh?

    UPDATE: That was the secret sauce - the Alpine Ridge card worked like a champ... I first connected the TB Display in Windows 10, and within a few seconds, I saw my Windows desktop. Rebooted in macOS (Mojave) and immediately saw the Clover boot screen on the TB display. Now my problem seems to...

    Apple Thunderbolt Display + Hackintosh?

    I actually downloaded the Titan Ridge driver/TB utility installer from the Gigabyte Website (vs. using the in-box CD). But I didn't think to check the firmware. I see that October FW update, so I'll try that this afternoon. I actually have the Alpine Ridge card in my Z370 build. That was...

    Apple Thunderbolt Display + Hackintosh?

    Any chance you could share your BIOS settings for the Thunderbolt card? I'm sort of struggling right now - I **know** this should work, but I'm not getting my TB display to "wake up"... Build: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro WiFi Intel i9-9900K Processor Samsung 970 PRO NVMe M.2 – 512GB G.Skill...

    nⓩxtMac Pro - i9-9900k - Gigabyte Aorus z390 Pro - macOS Mojave - Sapphire Vega 64 Reference

    Up until now, initialization/activation in Windows is pretty much a must. I'm guessing you had success because you only used USB3-C devices. I'm working on a new build for my other half, and bought the Alpine Ridge card. I had a spare SSD & just did a quick Windows install on that drive. The...

    HELP! I need to installa GC-Titan Ridge on Mojave Hackintosh

    Make sure to get the latest driver build for Titan Ridge from GA website. The version on the in-box CD-ROM was not as current as what was on the Web (at least in my sales package). Also, the installer is very different than Alpine Ridge version, as it's pretty much a "silent' install... just a...

    Mojave (10.14.6) install halts/reboots at white splash screen

    Yes indeed - recommended BIOS/UEFI settings from the install guide, as well as a couple "lessons learned" settings from my GA-Z370 build in my signature (enabling "Above 4G Decoding" for example). Using what's installed via latest UniBeast (fakeSMC, I believe). Also using the default SM as set...

    Mojave (10.14.6) install halts/reboots at white splash screen

    Thanks for replying. And yes, I know this from previous Mojave installs I've done that there are 3-4 reboots. I apologize for not being more clear. The problem I'm having is an endless loop of reboots, with no additional progress being shown in the progress indicator. I've rebooted probably 6...

    Mac Os Mojave installation stuck on End RandomSeed

    Is there a bios/uefi option for something like Above 4G Decoding? Getting stuck right there is usually fixed by enabling the 4G thing, plus make sure you have OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi on your install USB... it's a memory allocation error as I recall...
