    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Hey folks, what is the best way to monitor your hardware in this build? HWMonitor? Intel Power Gadget? Something else? Context: I'm getting some occasional crashes which are proving tricky to isolate, even after reading through the reports in the Console. I suspect Adobe CC, but it could be...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    I upgraded my BIOS to F5 and it seems to be working well so far.

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    On reflection, maybe it's okay that I have just one EFI volume, as long as a working EFI is backed up somewhere, like a USB stick? I just rebooted my hackintosh and at the boot screen was presented happily with both Catalina and Catalina Backup as options. Catalina Backup is running great (I'm...

    Hmm I think I may be hitting an issue with the EFIClone script. It appears to think that Source and Destination EFI Partitions are the same. [Sat Jul 25 16:26:46 EDT 2020] - ***** EFI Clone Script Started ***** [Sat Jul 25 16:26:46 EDT 2020] - Working Directory = / [Sat Jul 25 16:26:46 EDT...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Thanks very much, @CaseySJ. Using a volume (rather than a partition) would be great, and so I gave that a shot, but regrettably, CCC won't proceed in this configuration. I double checked that this was not editable by using csrutil status which indicated of course that SIP was already disabled...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Hey @CaseySJ, thanks for the perfectly justified soapboxing: I needed to hear it, and I'm sure plenty of others did too. I'm lucky enough to have made copies of all my important files in advance: I work in tech and it's now a pretty well-entrenched habit of mine to do that. But I've neglected...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Hey folks. My update to 10.15.6 has not gone well. I was on 10.15.5 working like a charm. I upgraded bios to f5d, also working great. I checked the forum and saw that users were updating to 10.15.6 without any difficulty, so I took the plunge, using the usual Preferences > Software Update...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    For those interested in using a FireWire device for audio (or some other purpose) I wanted to report that I have been using this Syba SY-PEX30016 Firewire PCIe card in my system connected to an Apogee Duet FireWire and Apogee Ensemble Firewire, and it is working pretty flawlessly so far without...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Hi folks. My build is generally running a treat right now, and I'm just getting the rest of my software set up. There are a few pieces of software I'd like to install which result in the error "This package is incompatible with this version of macOS." Looking around online, this appears to...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    s @CaseySJ I don't want to hijack this thread—we should throw this convo onto a separate thread—but it would be great to hear your thoughts on this. My two cents: - It is too soon to tell exactly how ARM hardware will shape macOS, but based on Apple's approach in other domains it is fair to...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Regrettably not, @CaseySJ. That would have been a boon, for sure, but I'm still very pleased to have a built-in card. Performance has been considerably better than that USB IOGear one I was using before.

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Thanks, @CaseySJ! For those following along, here are some more details which have resulted in perfectly working Bluetooth from the onboard AX201 chip. For those following @CaseySJ's superb guide, the steps are as follows: Download the latest release from zxystd's repository. This is a zip...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Following up here to help any folks who have similar experiences: I had dozens of application crashes and kernel panics, most of which appeared to involve a bad interaction of my GPU with Chrome renderers/helpers. Because the Chromium engine underpins a lot of other software I use (Electron...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    I appreciate the challenge! Since the EFI already includes USBInjectAll.kext, I believe Step 5 is to add uia_include=HS14 to the boot arguments. However, Bluetooth does not yet seem to be enabled for me. I confirmed the boot args with nvram -p which returned: nvram -p prev-lang:kbd...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Thanks @CaseySJ. Since that guide you mention uses Clover, I just wanted to confirm with you which steps may differ for the OpenCore build. Please correct me if I am mistaken (below): Download the latest release from zxystd's repository Mount EFI partition of the macOS SSD. Copy the two Intel...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Thanks @CaseySJ! That's very helpful. You're referring to this repo, right? https://github.com/zxystd/IntelBluetoothFirmware May I ask if you've tried it on the Z490? I've been eagerly watching zxystd's progress and was very pleased to see the AX201 added to the upcoming work.

    Um @0rca ... you got the Z490 Vision D Bluetooth to work?! That's pretty great news, since I'd been having a little trouble with my USB Bluetooth adapter. I note that @CaseySJ mentioned in the guide that one of the SSDTs installed will disable it: @0rca did you remove one of the SSDT files to...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Having now been up and running for a day, I have been encountering quite a few panics. These have occurred while multitasking between Chrome and Slack, and once while using Facetime: all of them froze the system and required a forced shutdown. I've pasted the Apple "Problem Report" from my most...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    @CaseySJ Just a quick note to say thank you: things are up and running wonderfully now! A note for future troubleshooters who bump into this issue: Resetting the CMOS and validating the installer did not fix this problem, even though they are good and useful steps. What ultimately was...

    Gigabyte Z490 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + i5-10400 + AMD RX 580

    Super suggestion, thanks @CaseySJ and @alchymista! That fixed the issue entirely: after a (lengthy) CMOS reset, removing all cables etc, my GPU was recognized in the BIOS and I got display directly from the GPU HDMI port. Solved! :clap: After formatting the NVME drive, I hit the error I was...
