    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    @CaseySJ - just updated from Clover to OpenCore - again your instructions made it a breeze (and a good learning experience). Still loving this hackintosh after many years (the headroom one feels using it to do video editing, streaming, development is just incredible versus a laptop). One...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Curious if someone can give me a quick rundown on what's going on with Clover / OpenCore? I'm running a previous 5119 but it looks like Clover and OpenCore have combined after 5124? Does that mean I still need to go through the conversion to OpenCore or that if I just upgrade Clover I'm...

    hey @CaseySJ - I don’t have a WiFi card installed? I do see Bluetooth PAN in there cause I have a small USB BT dongle. do you mean removing the Intel chip from the board? I’m not using it and have the DSDT that removes it loaded.

    Here's a copy of my analysis code for future reference (it's written in node.js, just run `node analyze.js > longboot.txt`) const fs = require('fs'); let bootFile = fs.readFileSync('./boot.log').toString(); let bootFileArr = bootFile.split(/\n/); for(let i=0; i < bootFileArr.length - 1...

    Hey everyone - I'm still being plagued with pretty slow boot times. I've disabled debug=0x100 and keepsyms=1 from my Clover options. I also wrote a parser for my boot.log looking for long delays between lines and got the below - the number at the end of the three dashes is the ms difference...

    Hey @CaseySJ - does that mean to use the new updates to VirtualSMC we now need to use OpenCore.efi?

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    New versions of AppleALC, Lilu, WEG, VirtualSMC are out. Will test later this week.

    @CaseySJ just another positive data point on the OcQuirks plist setup. My current: Clover 5103 Updated Lilu WEG ALC F7 BIOS It seems to be running stable. I am getting some sleep crashes. (Though no freezes since I did a CMOS reset.)

    @CaseySJ - what about the difference between restarting from the OS and powering down and powering up (without a CMOS reset). Is there some reason to expect unstable behavior from constant restarts?

    This raises another question - is restarting via software reset, reset button and power down/power up different for Clover/Mac? I've done dozens of software restarts without problems but the power down/power up with CMOS reset seems to have helped.

    Hi all - happy new year! I did two relatively innocuous things and now I'm experiencing significant instability on my hack. 1. I deleted two Network options from my Network preferences (Bluetooth PAN and Ethernet 2 - both unused). 2. I checked my BIOS settings (but Exited without Saving)...

    Merry Christmas @CaseySJ and all fellow Z390 hackers. Feels like we have a nice little community here all our own. Thanks for all the help over the last few months, love this machine and been getting a lot of joy out of it! If I could share one thing that someone earlier in the thread told me...

    Just FYI - update worked fine once I had updated Lilu, WhateverGreen and AppleALC.

    Anyone having issues with upgrading to 10.15.2 from 10.15.1? I've tried from System Preferences and get to a screen with an Apple logo and progress bar but eventually that crashes. Have never seen a boot option in Clover. That being said, I can hard reset the machine and boot into 10.15.1...

    Hey @digumo and @CaseySJ - I checked the BIOS stuff and didn't see any discrepancies (or anything else that seems like an obvious candidate for a reason why bootup is so slow. Non-kernel things like restoring apps - is that a likely cause?
