    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    No, not at all. Disk Utility on your USB installer (Install MacOS Ventura) should properly format an unformatted target disk to whatever you choose, per its menu. First you would select View All Devices, then select the target disk, then select "Partition" and choose a Name, APFS format, then...

    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    Installing macOS Ventura on any SSD requires that it first be formatted as APFS using Disk Utility. It won't install on an unformatted destination.

    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    @growl92, sorry, not clear to me whether you are installing onto your hard drive (or SSD) using a USB flash drive with OpenCore EFI in its EFI partition, or doing something else. Could you describe exactly where you are as far as the hardware is concerned? Did you make a flash drive using...

    I can't install Monterey because my SSD doesn't want to mount in the installer

    Nope, I was writing about the mismatch between your EFI/OC/ACPI files and those recommended by the OpenCore Guide, which you can see by looking at the linked website. You have SSDT-EC-Desktop.aml, SSDT-GPU-SPOOF.aml, and SSDT-IMEI.aml. The Guide says you need SSDT-PLUG.aml, but you don't have...

    I can't install Monterey because my SSD doesn't want to mount in the installer

    According to the OpenCore Install Guide for Ivy Bridge CPUs, (scroll to top of page) your EFI/OC/ACPI folder and your config.plist/ACPI/Add items do not correspond to their guide. You need to read the Guide and try to abide by it as much as possible. Please upload a corrected EFI folder after...

    I can't install Monterey because my SSD doesn't want to mount in the installer

    Sorry, my Hackintosh's Recommended Applications don't include UnRAR. Can you re-upload your EFI folder as a Zip file instead of an RAR file? Thanks.

    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    For me, about a full minute. Logo comes up right away, progress bar about a minute later, IIRC. [Edit: scratch that, 10 secs to beginning of progress bar, 2 minutes 40 seconds to the option selection screen.]

    << Solved >> 250 GB -> 1 TB SSD Upgrade - Best Way?

    Still attempting to install Monterey on a blank 1 TB Sandisk SSD. Tried the following: 1. Used a Kingston 16 GB "Traveler" USB2 stick with a Monterey 12.6.1 installer. Install failed about 19 minutes before complete with a "damaged installer" error message. Repeated and same error at same place...

    Ditto esafeddie, also the motherboard and CPU model descriptions at left are not complete.

    << Solved >> UNIX Executable Files Show as TextEdit and Don't Run

    Trying to install Monterey from my USB Flash Drive. All goes well until I press "Continue" in the Install MacOS Monterey.app. Nothing happens. I started looking at many files on the EFI partition, and also on my computer, a direct download of OpenCore 0.8.6 Release, and elsewhere. I seems that...

    No problem; it was a good read. Thanks for your help!

    Thanks for the info. I believe he wrote that technical difficulties on his end forced him to use his brother's hardware and account to continue troubleshooting. (I doubt he knew that was a problem for your site.)

    Lost Thread 12/01/2022

    Recently there has been a thread in the Monterey Desktop Support forum (OpenCore not Booting, thread # 323464) which has seemingly disappeared. I did not originate that thread, but had been attempting to help the original poster. Yesterday when I tried to post a reply, I got: Oops! We ran into...

    << Solved >> 250 GB -> 1 TB SSD Upgrade - Best Way?

    Thanks, Edhawk! [Edit: Reading through that procedure, I found that the most pertinent paragraph for me was the last: "Please note, however, that our recommended and supported procedure for restoring your startup disk from a CCC backup is to install macOS onto a freshly-erased volume, then use...

    << Solved >> 250 GB -> 1 TB SSD Upgrade - Best Way?

    My "Mini-ITX 2" Skylake computer (listed below) running Monterey 12.6.1 currently has two 250 GB SATA SSDs, which I am going to change to two 1 TB SSDs. One way to do this is to format the two new SSDs, then install Monterey 12.6.1 on each one from my Monterey USB flash drive installer, then...

    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    I've done this on my Skylake computer ("Mini-ITX 2" listed below). The most difficult part is inserting the two "micro-micro-nano-mini" cable connectors into the card. If you can do that without destroying anything, it does work on Big Sur, at least... I don't use the Bluetooth on Monterey; have...

    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    The Z490 info.plist looks like it has 20 (total) logical ports listed... I have no idea what "SSS" ports are. There are 18 ports in the "main" listing. But the relations among the HSxx ports and SSxx ports look correct. The Z590 info.plist has the correct 15 ports, but some of the "USBConnector"...

    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    Only from what I have read on this forum from moderators. Supposedly Catalina is the last Mac OS for which USBInjectAll.kext can be (successfully) used. Also the OC/Kernel/Add/Kext/XhciPortLimit Boolean Value of YES is "broken in later versions of MacOS." So all logical ports can no longer be...

    OpenCore z390 Aorus Pro WIFI?

    Please note that this can only be done in Catalina; USBInjectAll.kext cannot be used in Ventura. No problem, although it looks as if "esafeddie" has covered you on this. But if you still want it, here is mine (less Generic info).
