    Issues unmounting my EFI since updating to Ventura

    Since updating to Ventura I've had a strange issue with some hidden partitions on my System Drive. Whenever I unmount the EFI partition I'm greeted with the error message shown below. The partitions "VM, Preboot & Update" all throw the same error and I must "force eject" them to move forward...

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    I have the same brief delay for my RX 6800 XT during boot. That I can live with. I'm going to reset the CMOS and setup my BIOS from scratch and see if that solves my sleep issue when I get a minute to tinker. Thanks..

    CaseySJ, Thanks for your help. Switching off my Apple Magic TrackPad had no effect on my ability to sleep, neither did switching off the bluetooth. I have tried selecting sleep from the Apple menu and well over an hour later the machine has failed to sleep. I ordered that cable, and will...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Taking advantage of the recent downturn in GPU prices I recently (last week) upgraded to a Sapphire Pulse AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT. Sadly this has broken "Sleep" on my machine. When I select Sleep from the Apple menu, the monitor switches off but the computer never actually enters "sleep". I'm...

    [HOW TO] OpenCore 0.8.0 > 0.8.1 differences

    I finally made the jump to 0.8.1. Not as big of a hassle as I thought, I got the NVRAM Reset to display in the picker pretty easily.

    [HOW TO] OpenCore 0.8.0 > 0.8.1 differences

    Based on the grief I'm hearing about resetting the NVRAM I think I'll sit out 0.8.1 for now, 0.8.0 is working just fine.

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    I suppose that's a solution alright, but it kind of feels like a kick in the teeth after spending $ on 64 GB of 3600 MHz DDR4. I'll keep looking, thanks CaseySJ.

    Swapping my wifi/bt card in Monterey, what did I do wrong?

    I swapped my ancient card for a "YOUBO" BCM94360CD WiFi & BT 4.0 card and now my Bluetooth device connections are cycling (connected-disconnected), wifi works fine. Checked the USB power cable to the card and it seems fine. I've been searching the forum here (and beyond) for hours to...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    A bit of back story. I replaced my wifi/BT card in an attempt to solve the intermittent BIOS crashes I've experienced since building a Z490 Vision D last November. Somewhat randomly my BIOS crashes when waking from sleep. I can go for weeks without this happening then all the sudden it will...
