    Update Directly to macOS Big Sur

    Success! Used a separate SSD as a test disk to iron out all the kinks. Started with building OC 0.6.3 EFI folder, verified that it booted both Catalina and the Big Sur USB installer. I then installed Big Sur from USB to my test SSD and checked for stability. Made a few modifications to my...

    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580 - Thunderbolt 3

    @Stork Thank you so much for the guide! I've ordered the same MB + i7 8086K. Can you please share your EFI folder + SSDT's to make my life (and probably others who'll copy this build) easier once it arrives? :mrgreen:

    High Sierra 10.3.4 update - does printf work??

    Update went smoothly, which only deepens the confusion. It looks like it wasn't injecting the kexts and by forcing it from the clover menu, it worked. I'm now using the same setup I was using before, which wouldn't boot. So strange.

    High Sierra 10.3.4 update - does printf work??

    I was finally able to boot into macOS. Here's how: 1. I was desperate and thought maybe because I had 2 drives with clover, there was some kind of collision. So I erased them both and tried to boot from USB installer. Didn't work. 2. I re-flashed my BIOS because I read that it was the only way...

    High Sierra 10.3.4 update - does printf work??

    Have already tried those. But not with the config.plist you provided. I'll give it a try. Appreciate your help!

    High Sierra 10.3.4 update - does printf work??

    Thanks for joining Sir! I tried the config.plist. Same "does printf work??" I keep NullCPUPowerManagement.kext because it's necessary for the x79 platform to have working power management (As far as I know). I could boot without it (before this current saga began), but the cpu would run 10-20...

    High Sierra 10.3.4 update - does printf work??

    Thanks for replying! I attached my previously working EFI folder. This used to boot up like a charm.

    High Sierra 10.3.4 update - does printf work??

    When booting without -v I get a No Entry Sign. I tried slide=0, cpus=1, busratio=32. Tried safe mode, not injecting kexts etc. This really is weird. If only I could somehow get access to the drive, I'd replace the APFS.efi...

    High Sierra 10.3.4 update - does printf work??

    I have 4x4 GB of memory. Took out 2 sticks and booted with 8GB, thought maybe it would change something...Didn't. I keep seeing this. Can't get past it.
