    [GUIDE] Clear multiple configuration identities in MacOS

    Thanks for the guide! I have been having problems with iCloud (iMessage, iCloud Photos) and read that logging out of and then back into iCloud could solve some of my problems. Should I ldo that before or after deleting /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration folder? Thank you, Bruno

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    I just upgraded to your OpenCore 0.7.4 EFI (from 0.7.0) and am currently on macOS 11.4. I would like to upgrade to Monterey; how do I disable these two files so that I don't experience the wake from sleep problem? Thanks, Bruno

    Big Sur Crash when PC is left unattended randomly (watchdog kernel panic)

    Hi, did you ever find the cause or fins a way to stop these? I upgraded to Big Sur 11.4 from 11.2.1 earlier this month, and although I can't be sure, I think that's when I started having the same type of crashes. I definitely first noticed it about a week ago, which was about a week after I had...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    I guess I spoke too soon, it’s crashing again! Since the system was stable I plugged my Media drive back in and ran Disk Utility. Initially it gave an error that the disk should be replaced, but when I ran it again it said it was ok. So then I opened up photos and tried to continue my iCloud...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    So I ended up booting into the system with only the 860 EVO HD connected, logged out of my user account and logged back in while in safe mode, and the quit the only other apps still running, which were OneDrive, DropBox and GoogleSync. So far it's been stable for over an hour with no crashes...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    So I should just be able to boot into the 11.4 Recovery partition and do a new install that way? I had intended to start from your first post and reinstall the OS via USB Thumb drive. But it seems restoring from the recovery partition would go faster than installing over USB 3. I've never used...

    Ok, thank you for the advice. If the clean install does end up working, what is the best way to get my apps/user prefs back on? Migration Assistant? Also what cloning software do you currently use? I have always used SuperDuper, but I noticed that with this latest version it is making an exact...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Hi Pastry Chef, No I don't remember installing any new software recently, at least not since I upgraded to 11.4 a few weeks ago. Actually, I guess I installed the latest beta of SuperDuper so that I would be able to clone my startup/boot disk. But no other software. I did recently uninstall...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    So I decided to press my luck and rebooted back into my main HD, the EVO 860 SSD. It was up for a few minutes without crashing, so I further decided to launch Photos and see I couldn't get my iCloud Sync back on track. Anyway, it crashed again, and gave me this error message: panic(cpu 1...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    I too have recently started getting random crashes since I upgraded from OpenCore 0.6.6 to O.7.0 and from macOS 11.2.1 to 11.4. I also installed a Crucial P5 500GB NVME CT500P5SSD8 (disk1) at the same time as a backup to my OS SSD, a Samsung 860 EVO (disk0). I also have two other drives...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Hi Pastrychef, I have been using your EFI - OpenCore 0.6.6 since February with no problems. I want to update to your latest EFI - OpenCore 0.7.0 and want to follow your best practices as quoted above. I've searched these forums, but although I have found threads regarding NVRAM for the Z390 M...

    Hi, Yes I was able to get Catalina running by doing a new installation. Unfortunately I fried the motherboard soon afterwards and now have a different motherboard.
