    It often helps to a) simply load your OC config.plist in the version of OpenCore Configurator corresponding with the OC version, save, quit b) re-open OC config.plist in OC Configurator > Tools > OpenCore Validator > correct any errors if you can, save, quit reboot

    hey @a29psx I've been running Catalina happily ever since, and even if I also have a dedicated partition with an OC EFI, I've still been using Clover as my main bootloader because, booted with OC, I have screen flickering on wake-from-sleep. I even stopped updating bootloaders and kexts at some...

    DiskGenius ExFAT resize: bummer. Obviously because the partition or fs was damaged because I've successfully used it numerous times over the years. Free NTFS for Mac: try Hasleo NTFS for Mac. It's doesn't rely on Apple's (in rw mode) unstable ntfs fs driver (which is know to eventually cause...

    exFAT errors: I can confirm that my exFAT data partition on HDD appeared empty in Minitool Partition Wizard latest version a while ago, same as for you unfixable no matter what I tried, and also threw an error in GParted. Other than that it was working fine in both, macOS and Windows. But since...

    @a29psx sorry to hear about your loss of a family member - I am expressing my condolences to you, and also hope you have found some peace and solace. I also have separate ESPs (EFI System Partitions) for OC, Clover and Windows. My Data drive on HDD is exFAT for native r/w share Mac/ Windows...

    You're welcome. Backing up the UEFI BIOS boot menu is very much worthwhile when hackintoshing.

    Long story short: I'm giving up on trying to get TRIM via UASP on a non-Apple external SSD in a non-Apple enclosure going in macOS - after more than sufficient research on this it can be considered impossible. Only chance would be through Thunderbolt, which our VivoBooks don't offer. Case...

    oh, good news from Windows: hmmm .. Regarding macOS: on my friend's MacBook with Catalina, IOUSBAttachedSCSI.kext is loaded even without any ext. drive attached. Since that's required for TRIM via UASP, I'd need to solve that first, if possible in both bootloaders. In Clover I know how to...

    @a29psx it appears my VivoBook does NOT support UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol): despite of ThridPartyDrives enabled, IOUSBAttachedSCSI.kext does not show up in System Report > Software > Extensions (Catalina, Monterey; OC, Clover) as required as per this lecture here. Even after installing...

    Resetting the NVRAM changes Boot Order in BIOS

    Clover NVRAM reset via F11 preserves the BIOS boot menu entries, but it doesn't clear NVRAM completely, leaving remnants in NVRAM which are known to interfere with OpenCore, see here. I'd also like to know a EFI BIOS boot menu friendly (= maintaining) variant of NVRAM reset, in between Clover's...

    nice. The M-only notch is clear to see I had thought the exact same.. no proof.. Just a few Gen3 x2 appear to ever have gotten manufactured, esp. ones with 480-512 GB.

    Nice - even for 2 M.2 SSDs. Your Omicro NVMe which your Asus did not recognize only has the M key, but still you were able to insert it into your VivoBook's slot, if I understand you correctly. I wonder why Asus didn't block their SATA M.2 slot with the counterpart of the M and B keys so that...

    yes, thank you. To answer your previous question: I need the primary drive to be bigger, without having to mount a 2nd drive, esp. when I'm running on battery, esp, when I'm on-the-road. I can re-use the Toshiba SATA M.2 SSD either with an external enclosure for a few €s, or swap a friends 128...

    thanks for your thoughts and opening your VivoBook and actually trying, a29psx! My VivoBook came with a 1TB HDD. I have it unmounted at all times to save power, which has my battery time last significantly longer. The TOSHIBA THNSNK256GVN8 is SATA rev. 3.2 with B and M keys. Current PCIe NVMe...

    ..oh, and most important: the Kaby Lake R chipset's PCIe bus should allow NVMe, accdg. to specs. But is it certain that Asus has that implemented in our VivoBooks?

    cool, thanks for all the info, @a29psx ! I'm eyeing with either the Kingston KC2500 500GB (SKC2500M8) M.2 (double-sided 3.5 mm height), or the Samsung MZ-V7S500BW SSD 970 EVO Plus 500GB M.2 (single-sided 2.38 mm height). Accdg. to newegg, there are 2280 modules with even more than 10 mm...
