    Update Directly to macOS Big Sur

    Late to the Big Sur party, but just completed successful upgrade from Catalina (Clover) to Big Sur (OC 0.6.6) My process was as follows: * Create OC EFI folder (Kexts, ACPI, config.plist, etc) using Kaby Lake Guide * Delete Clover EFI on my Catalina installer USB, replace with new OC EFI...

    SSDTs or no SSDTs, that is the question

    Meh, just ended up enabling SSDT-PLUG and SSDT-EC-USBX as recommended in the Kaby Lake guide. Can't hurt. Going to do a CCC backup, and go for it w/ the Big Sur upgrade.

    SSDTs or no SSDTs, that is the question

    If sleep / wake is working, would this still be necessary? Trying to keep things as "vanilla" as possible to make future upgrades simpler.

    SSDTs or no SSDTs, that is the question

    Getting ready to do a direct upgrade to Big Sur from Catalina. Completed migration from Clover to OC 0.6.6. Everything working as expected. My question is around SSDTs. Currently I do not have any SSDTs in use. Are these required for Big Sur, or if I am running hardware that is natively...

    macOS 10.15.3 Update

    When adding Kexts to /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other, I just mount my EFI partition, and copy them into the "Other" folder manually. For this upgrade, I deleted all Hacintosh related kexts from /Library/Extension, and rebuilt cache as instructed in Stork's post.

    macOS 10.15.3 Update

    It's a pretty vanilla installation, not doing anything special. Using the following Kexts (latest release versions) in /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other: AppleALC, AtherosE2200Ethernet, FakeSMC, Lilu, USBInjectAll, WhateverGreen, XHCI-200-series-injector (not sure if I still need this one??) Here's my...

    Catalina 10.15.1 Update Doesn't Install and Can't Boot Catalina

    Just ended up re-installing from scratch. 1st time I have taken this step since originally setting up my hackintosh 4-5 years ago, so not a big deal. Had everything backed up. Now I know that my install is clean, no junk kexts, etc.

    Catalina 10.15.1 Update Doesn't Install and Can't Boot Catalina

    I just updated kexts (WEG, LILU, Apple ALC, Fake SMC) using Hackintool, then rebooted. Computer no longer boots, just Apple logo, progress bar, and then reboots on its own. From Clover boot menu, can I downgrade the kexts if I have the older versions on a USB? For some reason, my back up HD...
