    Grey screen with mouse pointer when installer starts.

    Grrr... according to OpenCore Configurator, the FakeSMC.kext was supposed to be disabled... I will fix this ASAP. Thanks for the keen eye! {edit}FakeSMC.kext is actually disabled, so shouldn't be loading.{/edit}

    Grey screen with mouse pointer when installer starts.

    USB 2 port used. Disabled all SSTs except SSDT-CPUR-Z690 and SSDT-AWAC, but never got to the grey installer screen. Added SSDT-EC-USBX and I can get to the blank grey installer screen, but the pointer will not move.

    Grey screen with mouse pointer when installer starts.

    Thanks for the help... Took the second option and now I have the machine getting as far as a grey screen with mouse cursor. Unfortunately, verbose mode doesn't help here. I wonder what could be stopping the installer from starting? PC details are: - Intel i7-12700K CPU - Gigabyte Z690 UD AX...

    Grey screen with mouse pointer when installer starts.

    Trying to set up OpenCore 0.7.6 on a USB stick to install Monterey on my Alder Lake system. When I boot the USB stick with debugging enabled I just get a message stating "OCB: System has no boot entries", and the system halts. I created the USB stick with this guide...

    Install Mac OS doesn't appear as option in Clover for Monterey USB installer

    The simplest solutions are the best solutions! Thank you. While I'm not a computer n00b, I am definitely a Hackintosh n00b. Little items like this go overlooked often. Now to get my configuration set up and hopefully get my Alder Lake system working.

If I press...

    << Solved >> How to tell Clover what disk to use for EFI data

    My PC consists of three 512GB SSDs and a 2TB SATA data drive. Each of the SSDs has a complete, bootable OS installation, including EFI partition - Windows 11, Mint Linux, and I'm installing OS X now. This allows each SSD to be bootable from the BIOS should anything happen to any of the other...

    Clover Configurator does not see my bootable EFI partition

    My system is triple booting Mint Linux, Windows 10, and Mac OS 11.4 Big Sur... using the Clover boot manager. Everything is mostly working, with the exception of the wrong partition showing up in Clover for Mac OS. I'd like to fix this, but Clover Configurator v5.18.3.0 does not see the EFI...

    Panic at boot after fresh Big Sur reinstallation

    A while ago I updated my Hackintosh to Big Sur. It was working well, but I wanted to upgrade to 11.4. The upgrade process wasn't working for me, so I decided to wipe my drive and do a fresh installation. I created a USB installation stick and performed the installation. All went well, or so I...

    Is there any documentation for the Quirks in Clover 5127?

    I'm running OSX 10.15.7 and I was successfully booting between OSX, Windows and Linux using Clover 5119. In preparation to update to Big Sur I updated Clover to 5127. Once I did that my system would not boot OSX - stalling at "EXITBS:START" then a row of "++++". I added the default Quirks...

    So, I successfully did a clean installation of Catalina 10.15.5, upgraded Clover boot loader from 5119 to 5126, fixed any issues from that upgrade, then upgraded to Big Sur. The system is booting fine, and I only see two issues - The onboard sound is not working but HDMI sound is OK, and the...

    << Solved >> Web browsers not working after Big Sur upgrade

    Feel like an idiot... I restarted and the browsers are working now. Big Sur sure feels a lot slower than Catalina.
