    Volume Hash Mismatch Error on macOS Monetery

    I don't remember where I read it now, but I was getting the error at every boot. The advice was to disable FeatureUnlock. I did so and haven't seen the error in several reboots.

    [Guide] Dell XPS 9560 Monterey OpenCore

    I have good news in that I got Monterey 12.4 to work. However, after I upgraded OC to 0.8.1 and my kexts with OCAuxiliary Tools, my 4K external monitor wouldn't connect, either using DP via my TB16 dock or directly by HDMI. Reverting to my backed-up 0.8.0 EFI folder fixed it. Can you experts...

    Mine worked fine for 4K/60 Hz running a TB16 dock with DP out. Not sure if that's a good comparison.

    Thanks. I just figured that if you had mentioned it in your OP guide, you are knowledgeable. They're both UEFI and I had been using Clover.

    Thanks for all the help. While I could get Monterey running on the external SSD, it would not install on the internal one, so I went back. OC seems to be an improvement, except that it's not clear how to set up legacy booting for my Windows and linux partitions. Should I use rEFInd? Put Clover...

    Thanks, it was and is enabled. So then the output of VerifyMsrE2.efi shown in my photo above is not a problem because AppleXcpmCfgLock just circumvents it? That's what was unclear.

    OK, please tell me what appears to be incorrect to you! They appear correct to me, and I have typed both commands multiple times.

    Sorry, what didn't I type correctly? "setup_var 0x4ed" "setup_var 0x04ed 0x01" Those both appear correct to me.

    That was pretty easy, thanks. I did two things that might be important for my problem below: I was more cautious and installed OC on my backup SSD. It worked for Catalina and I was able to update it to Monterey and boot it several times. I also figured "If not now, when?" and updated to OC...

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. That helps a lot and likely will save a lot of my time. One question on this: should I start with the EFI from your OP, Mar 16, 2022 XPS 9560 v1.2 - OC 0.7.9?

    [Guide] Dell XPS 9560 Monterey OpenCore

    I know there's a lot of tweaking and learning to do and I'm willing to do it, but I'd appreciate some advice on choosing my entry point. I have a 9560 with 4K and 16GB RAM that's been working well for me for >2 years running Catalina using Clover. I also have a TB116 that I really only use for...

    Add new USB WiFi dongle?

    I'm on a Dell 15" XPC 9560 that I set up 18 months ago using Catalina and Clover. My question today is, how can I add a new USB WiFi dongle? I upgraded my home connection and have a new XDO 6B29. I downloaded the driver, installed it and restarted. I can see it in System Report as shown below...
