    Open Core doesnt show second boot drive

    I had clover working with an internal NVME and an external USB SSD both running Catalina. I installed open core and updated the NVME install to Big Sur. It worked, but now my external SSD with Catalina doesnt show up as a boot option (but it is visible in finder and disk utility when I boot into...

    4k TV does 30hz in Mojave, but 60hz in windows

    I have a Roku TCL 4k TV. It has an HDMI 2.0 port that can do 4k60 (ps4 works, windows works). In fact, even Mojave works, but only if i unplug and replug the hdmi cable every bootup, then it switches to 60hz. I have an rx 580. Any way to get it to work automatically?

    What config settings for i5 9400f CPU?

    In my 6 years of hackintoshing, I have never learned what settings and when in the clover config in the CPU section. Do I "generate PStates"? "Generate Cstates"? What about the C states mentioned by themselves "C6" etc? Do I use "PluginType=1"? If so, which one? There are 2 separate sections...

    Best GPU for Divinci Resolve / Video editing? Vega 64, VII, or 5700 XT?

    Now that Catalina has 5700 XT support, which of these 3 cards is the best for video editing / divinci resolve? I mean in both "hands down best" and in "best bang for buck". For example, I might be inclined to 2nd place if its only slightly less powerful while being half the price etc. Any ideas?

    How do I move my Catalina drive to an HFS+ drive?

    I have a working Catalina drive, but it is in APFS. Even when I use carbon copy cloner, it converts the second drive to APFS. Is there a way to move it to a HFS+ drive?

    What about these HP Z XEON machines that are like $400 and as powerful as 9900k builds?

    There are a ton of older HP Z series machines (z800, z820 etc) that are either single or even dual xeon, and usually come with a ton of RAM for like 4-500 dollars. Some of these score the same, or even higher than modern 9900k builds, but I can find very little on compatibility. Does anyone know...

    << Solved >> Newest Clover can't boot (busy timeout appleacpicpu)

    I have 2 EFI folders with identical driver folders, identical kexts, and identical config file. The different is that one folder has the newest clover. The newer one has a different file structure too (no drivers64 folder, instead has a driver folder and inside has a bios folder and a uefi...

    Which video editor that is NOT FCPX in Mojave?

    FCPX is absolute trash, so I am looking for another NLE. MacOS is supposed to be the “creative” preferred environment for video, music, production etc, but I can’t seem to find a good solution. First, Apple murders NVIDIA/CUDA support, so then you think “oh, they must want you to use...

    Dell Optiplex 755 E8400 cant see sata drives

    I had an old dell laying around and decided to try a hack. From what I read, it would work except for onboard graphics, so I added a working video card. I then made the UniBeast Legacy mode USB installer for High Sierra 10.13.6 but it wouldn't boot to the installer. So then I read some more and...

    << Solved >> New config file has very slow boot time, and rainbow colored text in verbose mode

    So I had been updating my config file over the course of many years and many different builds, and so I decided to make a brand new config file since the old one was causing alot of problems. The new one works and solved many of the issues I was having, but it did 2 things. One, now my -v boot...

    << Solved >> Mojave rx 580 second monitor rotation / portrait bug

    I have a weird display bug that I cant find any info on, so Im guessing its hackintosh related. I have 2 monitors ( an Asus 4k monitor, and a monoprice 1440p monitor, both using DP).The 1440p monitor is rotated and so I set the rotation in the preferences to match. The problem is that on every...

    Takes a long time to reach Clover Boot Menu

    8700k, rx 580, mojave 10.14.2, 1440p monitor and 4k monitor, both using DP cable. It takes a long time to load the clover boot menu. In the past, it would take a long time because it was showing that "afps" verbose code before loading Clover, and now it just shows a black screen for like 10...

    (9900k Vega 64 10.13.6) - Bios post always fails on restart / shutdown

    First, the build would not shutdown or restart (it would just hang on the black screen), until I added emuvariable, now it does restart/shutdown but on every boot, the bios gives me the "post failed last time" error where I have to press f1 to go to bios settings, and then boot from there...

    How do you decipher an Apple device model, from a serial number manually?

    usually, people just say “go to the Apple website and enter a serial there, it will then tell you the device model”, but obviously there is data in the serial itself that gives a model. Two ways I know this are 1) websites like “everymac” can tell you the model of a device by its serial, and 2)...

    Black Screen for 20-30 Seconds on Boot with RX 480

    Is there a fix for the "black screen for 20-30 seconds on boot" issue with AMD cards? I have an rx 480 and it works without any kexts or boot flags, but it alwasy has a black screen for about 20 seconds when I boot in, which makes having an ssd pointless for boot times. This is NOT the "black...

    Fortnite lags terribly on my 8700k Rx 480 build

    i had a 1060 6gb and was experiencing terrible lag and stutter in Fortnite (game freezes for a split second about every 3 seconds). I thought it was due to the sh*t show that is the NVDIA webdriver issue, so I traded for an RX 480, and the same issue occurs. Can anyone else try Fortnite in MacOS...

    Fix for slow NVME speeds

    Ive had an NVME drive issue for about a year now where the write speed (in my case) was VASTLY slower than it should, while the read speed was good. I tried reformatting, erasing, reinstalling OS, installing windows etc, and that issue persisted. It wasnt until i used the "utility" program that...
