    AMD RX 580, Hardware Encoding (Adobe media encoder) Locking up system

    Yes, I did. In my case it was a microcode bug by Intel, that could be fixed with an update of my EFI/BIOS. Check here for details: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-gigabyte-ga-z270-gaming-k3-gigabyte-nvidia-geforce-210-now-sapphire-ati-radeon-rx580.246679/#post-1988983

    A couple of other additions: 1. VT-X In order to re-enable VT-X on this board's UEFI settings, I added DMAR signature to DROP TABLES in clover configurator. Found here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-fix-the-vtd-0-fault-error-vt-x-working.232113/ 2. USB Stability I had to learn...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte GA-Z270-Gaming K3 + (Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce 210) now Sapphire ATI Radeon RX580

    So in the meantime, I tried to make iCloud working and had to learn, that iCloud, iMessage seem to require a working NVRAM and valid SMBIOS entries, which were not the case on my system. iCloud allowed me to ask for 2 factor auth, but eventually didn't login on the hackintosh. 1. NVRAM EFI...

    AMD RX 580, Hardware Encoding (Adobe media encoder) Locking up system

    Thanks for that information. I was experiencing this issue even when using Avidemux 2.7.2 and turning on a video on Youtube... I repeatedly made the system crash. I was even wondering, if my CPU might be defective. And after changing the CPU cooler, the SSD, the graphics to Sapphire RX580 during...

    A Beginner's Guide to Creating a Custom USB SSDT

    That's an outstanding helpful tutorial. Thank you very much for compiling all the information. As an addition, you already indicated: when running High Sierra 10.13.6 the USB-Limit-Removal does not work. In my case it didn't. This meant, that I could not see any of the SSxx USB3.0 ports in...

    Sorry for not getting back any earlier, I had issues with my account here. I am not sure, if sharing the EFI folder is allowed, since I don't know about all the license types. I attach a screenshot for you. I hope this helps... I don't use anything fancy... See here: #7

    As an addendum: if you decide to use that crappy "Migration Assistant" for migrating a Chameleon/Chimera based Hackintosh to a Clover based system, get ready for tons of issues and a non booting system (even if it was running perfectly ten seconds ago). What does "Migration Assistant" do to...
