    AMD Radeon: Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700XT, 10.15.4, success

    I just (tonight) swapped out my trusty Sapphire RX580 for a shiny new 5700 XT. Apart from the moment of surprise when I realised it needed 2 PCIe power cables (!), it was a smooth swap. What a monster though. Glad I have a large case. I ran one last Heaven benchmark on the 580 after...

    lost bcfg info after Catalina install, puzzled

    I'm still not entirely clear on how all the intricate mechanisms mesh together in what sequence during boot... wish I had a flow chart! I learned during my first dual-boot configuration (Mojave and Win10) that it was easier and better in the long run to use bcfg to set up a hard-wired entry...

    Attempt to restore apps to new Catalina boot disk using CCC: FAIL

    Don't try this at home, kids. As so often before, I got a bit too clever for my own good. Having got a bootable Catalina drive (yay! yay!) I thought it might be quick and simple to use CCC to copy all my installed non-Apple apps, open source software etc from my Mojave disk to my new Catalina...

    Solved > Catalina 10.15.4, ASUS mobo, hang before installer

    I thought I'd have another whack at Catalina, so I attached a spare USB SSD, then created a brand new USB boot stick using the very latest Unibeast to make a bootable stick with the 8GB (!!) latest Catalina from App Store. Thought I'd use the spare SSD for my target disk, so I don't mess up my...

    Catalina Stalled at end of Apple Installer Progress Bar

    I thought I'd have another whack at Catalina (kinda bored and restless due to StayHome). Got the latest everything, made a fresh USB stick with UniBeast, booted from it... very slow boot, got an Apple logo with progress bar... progress bar reached 100 percent... nothing happening. My plan was...

    Solved > Unbootable after power hit: internal SSDs corrupted?

    My KiKi system has lived through many a power outage (our winters are hard on power lines), but from the most recent one it has not recovered. I feared for the mobo at first, because both Win10 and Mojave were no longer bootable. Win10 reported its boot disk damaged, tried to repair, then...

    Clover Configurator File Save: not quite the behaviour I expected

    Now that I know this, it won't fool me again. But what I observed today was a little unsettling. I'm fooling around with N EFI partitions (the original Catalina boot stick, the healthy Mojave boot disk, the partially-installed Catalina external disk) and trying to compare and adjust...

    Trying new Catalina Unibeast, no luck yet

    I started from scratch with a new USB stick, formatted, ran the new Catalina Unibeast, booted the install stick... got the new Clover 5xxx, selected MacOS Installer, got to the Apple logo boot screen... the last 10 percent of progress was agonisingly slow... then got to 100 percent and...

    Solved > Sleep/wake issue, graphics stutter... possible clue?

    Googling reveals that plenty of people have experienced this strange Mojave problem, where after waking from sleep, the Hackintosh is very laggy: mouse movement stutters, kernel_task gets ridiculous amounts of CPU etc. I've tried most of the suggested remedies and so far no luck, but a reboot...

    Giving up on Catalina (for now)

    Sad to say, I'm reformatting the boot disk and restoring Mojave :( After an initial successful Catalina install (but clearly with graphics issues) my attempts to update kexts to "improve" it turned into a death spiral. Never got past black-screen-with-pointer despite much googling and many...

    Mouse Jitter and greedy kernel_task after sleep, Mojave

    Hi all. Seeing a new and unwelcome behaviour today. After sleeping, Hackintosh wakes up in a strange state. Mouse movement is very jerky and stuttery (but keyboard seems fine). And kernel_task is hogging about 80 percent of the CPU. I tried unplugging oddball USB HID stuff... no change...

    10.15.3 beta released Jan 24th

    I guess the official 10.15.3 is just around the corner, which means I will probably try to upgrade so I can use my 5700XT AMD card (Sapphire Nitro+). Didn't really want to try to go to a .2 release :-) Has anyone (braver than I am!) tried this beta?

    Guide: MultiBoot Success with Mojave/Win10 on 2 internal SSDs and ASUS mobo

    My correct recipe for this setup got buried in a long whiny thread (me whining, that is). I thought it was useful enough -- and I've multibooted enough times and run enough stuff on both OS with no problems -- that I'm reposting it here with its own title and calling it Success. 2 internal...

    Solved > UEFI Hell... some specific questions

    I've been in UEFI hell for a while now, and am not getting any closer to understanding what's going on. [UPDATE:] OMG, why have I not yet read this thread https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-how-to-keep-clover-working-when-installing-windows-and-linux.272807/ (reading now) Here is the...

    Solved > Inconsistent/flaky BIOS/UEFI behaviour: booting into BIOS instead of EFI

    I've succeeded at last in making my Hackintosh dual-OS, with WinDoze 10 on one internal SSD and Mojave on another; the Win10 side has been up and running over 24 hours, installed some games, ran virus checks, did some personalising... now it's time to shut'er down and go back to Mojave-land...

    Geekbench and Unigine Heaven scores, Win10 vs Mojave

    Of course as soon as I got Win10 running on my now-dual Hackintosh, I ran the standard benchmarks. I know so little about WinDoze (only running it for the sake of one game that will never be released for MacOS)... no idea what to expect, but this was a bit surprising... I'm really puzzled by...

    Sapphire RX580 HDMI fail in service

    Interesting. I have 2 identical Sapphire RX580 Pulse 8GB cards. One is in my brand new Mojave Hackintosh (KiKi, see sig). The other is in my old Hack which I upgraded and gave to my husband for xmas. Here's the monitor situation as of this morning: GiGi: one LG ultrawide on port HDMI1...

    Solved > GUID scheme disks: can I get rid of unwanted EFI partition?

    Little hints here and there online suggest that some of the hair-tearing confusion I'm experiencing with UEFI boot disks and Win10 dual-booting may be because ASUS BIOS doesn't like too many EFI partitions and Win10 installer really doesn't like multiple EFI partitions. Unfortunately, I always...

    Solved > Clover idiot question... what does installer really do?

    I did google quite a lot, but didn't find an answer. Lots of How-Tos on making a USB stick (I know how to do that)... but no clue as to what Clover installer really does. So, as I guess we all know, there's this installer with a name like (current version) Clover_v2.5k_r5103.pkg And if you...

    Solved > ASUS BIOS not seeing 2nd SSD as bootable device?

    In the throes of trying to get Win10 installed on my hackie :) oh what fun. Anyway, one thing I wanted to try was to Carbon Copy Clone my MacOS boot disk, then see if I could boot from it. So I CCC'd from m.2_1 (NVME SSD) to m.2_2 (PCIe SSD) which went gratifyingly fast. Checked EFI...
