    Opencore - Seeking advice

    I'll park the Opencore update from 0.7.0 to 0.8.7 config.plist issues for the moment. I don't know whats going on with USB kext ... USB kext was created when I first moved from Clover to Opencore in line with @Stork guide for our MB. It was working for the OSX update from Catalina to BigSur as...

    Mine on Big Sur using OC 0.7.0 is a rock and surprisingly fast.

    @ @c-o-pr the ONLY reason I tried the configurator was due to previously given advice. Since starting with Opencore I have avoided auto configurators like the plague. It’s been years since I have updated my Hack working on the premise “it’s not broke don’t fix it”. However, as I am now wanting...

    @Feartech / @UtterDisbelief so have finally got the system back to a working BigSur 11.4 on OC 0.7.0 via SSD EFI. @UtterDisbelief tried all the USB2 slots and still got "prohibited" on all including USB3, albeit, only one of the USB2 slots (above Firewire) recognized the USB drive. Boot off...

    Just having dinner my end of the world (+8 GMT). Will evaluate all the above. @UtterDisbelief I realise I haven't answered your queries accurately. Will make better analysis and edit the above. @Feartech I was surprised you made the suggestion as I have, since using OC, tried to follow the...

    1) Not an upgrade just an update of a working Big Sur from OC 0.7.0 to 0.8.7 (to refresh dated skills set). 2) YES but USB kext was working on OC 0.7.0 3) YES and disabled iGpu to enable Big Sur to work with Imac SMBIOS. I hope that helps in finding a solution.

    @UtterDisbelief I’ve gone back to a Propertree plist edit and gotten past that point. I’ve got Opencanopy picker to work and now keep getting the Apple support / Mac grey no go symbol at boot. The only change is I did use @Feartech ‘s suggestion of the MinVersion and Mi Date to -1. This is for...

    Thanks @Feartech ... I'm thinking the years between is part of the operator failure. Will have another attempt tomorrow. Did all manually will utilize configurator tomorrow.

    Opencore - Seeking advice

    Hello all, Seeking some advice. Haven't upgraded my OC since 0.7.0 odd and now wanting to move to 0.8.x and having a very hard time. Any advice on simplifying the process as I've spent a day trying to get a valid Big Sur OC config.plist from the previously original working version. Am I just...

    OSX on ESXi?

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with doing a Hackintosh on a bare metal Esxi and could explain the pitfalls? I was essentially wondering if it was possible to obtain a fully functioning OSX or will I lose features. Thanks in advance.

    Unlikely albeit you may wish to go through the thread and contact @Nortagawa or @danmcq ? I was originally helped by them to mod a BIOS for a different motherboard. In the end you could also look up how to inspect edit BIOS and find which Intel Nvme portion is needed to get a MB to recognize...

    @miliuco in your OP which icon pack did BlackOSX icons come from? I've search for the BsxM1 theme but it is distinctively different from the ones in your OP.
