    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    @ICEVISION originally because OpenCore was so much faster than Clover to boot on my setup. Now… I dunno - it seems like there's less legacy support in OpenCore, which means it should (in theory) be quicker to improve. Acidanthera look after so much of the Hackintosh scene's workarounds and kexts...

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    I'm seeing an unusual (but repeatable) behaviour with my X299 setup that I was hoping others had seen/solved. The specs of my build are listed in my signature, but I am using OpenCore 0.5.5 and running macOS Catalina 10.15.3. I have FileVault enabled for my boot drive. If I boot my rig from...

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    This is why we end up with thousand page threads that are impossible to follow. As an X299 user I don't want/need to hear about (and filter out) issues for an unrelated motherboard series, but hey, it's a free world, and you sound like you're going to do whatever you feel like doing :thumbup...

    This would be the polite point for you to start a new thread dedicated to your decidedly not X299 motherboard, and continue the conversation there.

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    @xerox24 yeah, it's broken. Someone mentioned that the MSR unlock state in the BIOS menu is broken - it's always locked, which prevents macOS from booting without a kernel patch. Stay with BIOS 2002 until ASUS release an update to fix the issue (which could be months).

    Oh, excellent, a bug. Let's see if/when ASUS fixes this one :|

    Asus X299 - Support

    Heads up: I did a test run with ASUS' Prime X299 Deluxe v3006 BIOS update today, and I could not my build to boot using OpenCore 0.5.5. I had to revert to BIOS version 2002. It goes without saying that if you don't have a reason to update your BIOS: maybe don't (at least without setting aside...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    Yes, it does work with 5K resolution. My board is not the Designaire. It is the Prime Deluxe. It's the 2016 model - the A series that was release first with WiFi shielding issues. Yeah, it's not quick to wake from sleep. Only a few seconds longer than my MBP does with the same display. The...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    @watug I don't know of any recently updated guides. I use a Titan Ridge card with my ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe motherboard, but everybody has different use cases, and many people see quite different results with similar hardware. I couldn't make a recommendation that you bother with Thunderbolt 3...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    @watug you'll find that you can only get 4K resolution out of a DP to USB-C connector. You need 2 x DP 1.2 leading into 1 x Thunderbolt 3 out for this to work, currently - that's what the LG displays expect. You can't avoid a Titan or Alpine Ridge card if you want this to work at full resolution.

    Try with pikera initially. That works for me, although sometimes I still need to unplug and replug the display to get full 5K resolution.

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    Interesting. Is this the new model? I have one of the very early models (A or B) - it only seems to support DP1.2.

    Does macOS support HBR3?

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    I have the same issue. All of the USB devices attached to the display reset as well (forcing my USB DAC to full volume) whenever I disconnect and reconnect the cable, making it really annoying. I’d just put it down to macOS’s ThunderBolt drivers not being fully loaded, and Apple doing some kind...

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    I've just tried OpenCore 0.5.4, and my setup is still showing the memory warning. What did you change in your config.plist to do this?
