    [Solved] ASUS TUF Z390M PRO stuck in BIOS wont boot from UEFI

    Solved it ! 1) I disabled SIP to allow clover to work on the EFI directory. 2) For the path via createInstallMedia I was copying the files into the EFI Volume directly instead of EFI/EFI/...

    Never tried opencore before, Can we do a vanilla install and just copy the OpenCore EFI to it ?

    [Solved] ASUS TUF Z390M PRO stuck in BIOS wont boot from UEFI

    Doesn't seem like my day. FWIW here's the mounted EFI on the USB. Tried to create 2 versions using the same USB that won't boot. 1) Unibeast - hangs at installing bootloader. 2) Vanilla following hackintosher - I can boot a real mac with it; but it won't work on the Hackintosh. Was suspecting...

    [Solved] ASUS TUF Z390M PRO stuck in BIOS wont boot from UEFI

    I did verify that the USB has the EFI partition. I had to verify that the config.plist has a patch for the RTC bug in the latest BIOS.

    [Solved] ASUS TUF Z390M PRO stuck in BIOS wont boot from UEFI

    I am trying to install Catalina on ASUS TUF Z390M PRO which was updated to the Bios v2606. I'm stuck with a strange issue where the USB drive is recognized by the BIOS, but it never boots into it- when I select the UEFI USB to boot, the screen just flickers and goes back to the bios screen. I...

    [SUCCESS] ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING - i7 9700K - RX 580

    I'd first try the method I listed before taking out the soldering iron. I went to an older BIOS using the method mentioned above. I also moved up to v2012. Again as Bigzbig saw, there's always an element of uncertainty in the outcome.

    [SUCCESS] ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING - i7 9700K - RX 580

    No clue. Quite honestly, I'd try to RMA if its under warranty or see if we can reprogram the bios chip - you can get USB bios chip reprogrammers on Amazon.

    [SUCCESS] ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING - i7 9700K - RX 580

    Ouch - Did you load optimized defaults, before flashing ? What step did it fail ? Was the bios meant for the motherboard? I have noticed that even though we select the right motherboard, the site sometimes showed bios for other models. I first downloaded a one for Z390 Plus, even though I...

    [SUCCESS] ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING - i7 9700K - RX 580

    Long story, I reverted it back to BIOS v0805. AFUDOS seems to be provided by the BIOS manufacturer AMI Megatrends. I got it from here. Posting the steps if someone runs into the same issue. You will need 2x USB 2.0 drives for this, download the BIOS from here. Step 0 : Disconnect all other...

    [SUCCESS] ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING - i7 9700K - RX 580

    Seeing the same issue, updated to Version 2411 from 0805. Boot hangs. Trying to re-flash to older version is not allowed by the EZ flash tool. Thinking of running AFUDOS.exe from a FreeDOS USB drive and flash it. However I'm not sure if there are any Linux tools to convert a .CAP file to .ROM...

    That will be fixed when you run the 10.8.3/4 update. If you chose the Nvidia route, be sure to use this driver http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Mac/Quadro_Certified/313.01.02f01/WebDriver-313.01.02f01.pkg&lang=us&type=Quadro and use the kernel flag...
