    Apple's WWDC 2020 Will Be Online Only

    Sounds innovative, but I'm certain it's a response to the current SARS-COV-2 pandemic. Hopefully, the incidence of infection in late May / June will have decreased (as of today, we just don't know if it will behave like other coronaviruses), it won't be zero. Hence, avoidance of large gatherings...

    Having Trouble Updating Directly to High Sierra from Sierra

    I suggested the AMD RX 580 because it is AMD, supported by Apple, relatively affordable, and not too far off the performance to your GTX980. Of course, if you have more to spend or need better performance, go for a different AMD card.

    Success: Z68A-D3H-B3-F13

    @syrinx-priest You're using legacy bios which has a hdd limit. Older legacy bios and MS Windows that use a mbr partition can't address these larger drives as a single partition (actually the limit is generally 2.2 TB). Hence, drives larger than 2.2 TB are divided into logical partitions. GPT...

    Just be careful. It's quite tricky to roll back to legacy bios and there's a chance you could brick the bios. So, even though some people have reported some minor bugs in the U1D bios (it's beta, after all), I think overall it's worth a shot.

    Guiscard, If you're still on F13 bios. I suggest upgrading to U1D, which implements uefi. However, make sure you copy the old [F13] bios to a usb stick and familiarize yourself with how to roll back to the F13 bios in case you aren't happy with the U1D uefi bios.

    I have a GA-Z68-UD3H-B3 which I suspect is close enough so that with few changes you should be able to get your's working in no time. I'm using the last bios (beta version U1n which provides uefi boot). For your board you should have ver U1D. My SSD is formatted with apfs. In the...

    The nvidia web driver for HS contains info for all relevant cards. See the download section on TonyMacx86 and select the one that matches your HS build

    Having Trouble Updating Directly to High Sierra from Sierra

    You are quite correct. Sorry, I didn't look at your profile carefully. The GTX 980 will not work with Mojave or Catalina. IMHO, given your investment in a good working hack, you could stay with HS for now and save for a new AMD card (the RX580 can be found for ~$170)

    Having Trouble Updating Directly to High Sierra from Sierra

    Shouldn't be an issue; not sure why you selected HS, but if there isn't a specific reason, you might consider instead going to Mojave.

    Having Trouble Updating Directly to High Sierra from Sierra

    Need to see the troubleshooting files (look in /threads/tool-generate-proper-problem-reporting-files.235953/). BTW, USBInjectAll should only be used when you're defining which usb ports you want to keep active and which ones to disable to keep within the 15 port limit

    Having Trouble Updating Directly to High Sierra from Sierra

    You likely have some other kexts in /L/E necessary for you to boot. Look in /L/E to see if that is the case, and move them to the efi if that's were you want to have them rather than /L/E. By putting fakesmc in the /efi/Clover/kexts/other folder you may not be loading kexts you need from /L/E...

    [Guide] Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3+EVGA GTX650

    There's a post on here from TRS96 "if you have Windows run GPU-Z to find out if it's got a GK 107 core." Other than contacting the manufacturer, I don't know how to determine the core.

    [Guide] Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3+EVGA GTX650

    There are problems if the core is GK106 rather than GK107. Best to see if you can determine which core your gtx 650 has.

    Black Screen with RX 580

    I've attached a revised efi folder which may work, but if not, will hopefully start you in the right direction. You'll need to work on the ports to keep within the 15 port limit (read about port limits and try Hackintool).

    Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3P compatibility

    IMHO, Catalina is stable and shouldn't by itself be a concern. However, that said, remember Catalina requires 64-bit apps, so if your favorite music app has not been ported to 64-bit you should stick with Mojave.
