    Dual boot Monterey and Win 11 (is TPM 2.0 a problem?)

    I have Win11 and MacOs 12.2.1 each on its own physical NVMe m.2 SSD. TPM is enabled in the BIOS of the motherboard. Installation was rather smooth and I had no issues. It's been a while now, but I'm pretty sure I did the MacOs install first. Once that was working fine (OpenCore), I removed the...

    Prerequisites for Radeon 6800 XT in Monterey 12.1

    I got this one: MSI RX 6800 XT Gaming Z Trio 16G It did cost a shocking amount of money, but the “old“ 5700XT is currently being sold on ebay and will re-finance about 50% of the purchase.

    Prerequisites for Radeon 6800 XT in Monterey 12.1

    Indeed it was a simple swap of the 5700xt and the 6800xt and no problems were encountered. There was a little bit confusion about the resizable bar BIOS setting, but OpenCore has settings for this since 0.7.5. All good now!

    macOS 12.2 Update

    Did the update from OpenCore 0.7.6 to 0.7.7 first (together with latest Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext and WhateverGreen.kext). After that from Monterey 12.1 to 12.2 without any problems.

    Is the iGPU good for anything if you have an eGPU?

    Hi there, I'm running a hackintosh Monterey 12.1 on Gigabyte Aorus Master z390, i9900k, 64GB 3600MHz DDR4, and RX 5700 XT. I wonder, is there any advantage or any clear disadvantage of having the internal GPU of the i9900k enabled in the BIOS? I do run Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop with GPU...

    Prerequisites for Radeon 6800 XT in Monterey 12.1

    Hi there, I'm running a hackintosh Monterey 12.1 on Gigabyte Aorus Master z390, i9900k and RX 5700 XT. Windows 11 is installed on a second internal SSD. Booting is done by OpenCore 0.7.5. So far everything is super-stable and all features I need are working fine. Just for the gaming on the...

    OpenCore (0.7.6) Boot menu settings

    Thank you! Much appreciated :-)

    OpenCore (0.7.6) Boot menu settings

    Thank you both! I think Ctrl+Enter will be close enough. It‘s not really a mission-critical feature. Just merely something I got used to. One more question: Can the timeout value be changed in OpenCore? The time until the menu is closed and the Default Boot Volume is booted? Cheers, John

    OpenCore (0.7.6) Boot menu settings

    Hi there, I have re-installed my Hackintosh successfully and run now Monterey 12.1. I just updated OpenCore from 0.7.5 to 0.7.6, removed all the debugging features I had running for a while now and installed the OpenCanopy graphical boot selector menu (I have Windows 11 on a separate SSD). That...

    macOS 12.1 Update

    Smooth update on z390 board (GB Aorus) with i9900k and Radeon 5700XT. OC 0.7.6. Refreshed kexts first. Took about 20 to 25 minutes and two reboots.

    Bluetooth strangeness, intermittent connection loss

    Hi Edhawk, hi Henties, I don't know why, but the BT issues have vanished after about a day or so. I'm not aware of any change I did to the bluetooth stack. Obviously I'm in the progress of setting up the system and install a lot of software. The only change to the OC EFI was the addition of my...

    Bluetooth strangeness, intermittent connection loss

    Hi there, I have just installed Monterey (with OC 0.7.5) on my GB Aorus Master Z390 with i9900k and Radeon5700XT and 64GB 3600Mhz RAM on a WD_BLACK SN850 m.2 NVME SSD. Everything works just fine: Ethernet, Audio, iCloud, iMessage, etc. Even the Bluetooth card I have installed (a PCI-e card for...

    OpenCore install stuck on or after USB detection

    The rest was easier than expected. 50 minutes later I have Monterey installed on my WD_black SN850. Wifi, Bluetooth and on-board audio worked immediately! The Radeon X5700XT is recognized and used as main output device with 4k resolution on my Dell monitor. Only the onboard LAN is not...

    OpenCore install stuck on or after USB detection

    Ok, now I got it ! First edit the prev-lang:kbd field in the config.plist (delete/leave the value empty) Then reset the nvram Then reboot again Then you‘re asked by the installer about the language you want. I guess that‘s a practical joke for all the first-time OpenCore users? Cheers, John

    OpenCore install stuck on or after USB detection

    Turns out I didn‘t had either one of the USB kexts in my installer…. I feel a little bit stupid now. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!!! Now the installer boots to the Apple graphics. For whatever reason those screens are in cyrillic/russian language. I tried resetting the NVRAM in...

    OpenCore install stuck on or after USB detection

    Hi macntosh! Good info !! I will take my USBMap.kext created on the very same hardware with my old hackintosh and incorporate that into my OC EFI on the Installer USB SSD. I will report back tomorrow (no time today) with the results. Cheers, John

    OpenCore install stuck on or after USB detection

    Thank you for the ideas! Keep it coming ;-) I have not yet created an USBMap.kext (mapping the USB ports to the max limit of 15 ports in MacOS), as I understand this to be a post installation step. On my older Clover hackintosh I have done that and created a USBMap.kext successfully. I‘m not...

    OpenCore install stuck on or after USB detection

    Ah, no… It‘s not me aborting the progress. That‘s happening automatically about two minutes after the last line of log output. I have the full Monterey install image on the USB SSD and that is quite quick.
