    Good Video on AIO Cooler Mounting Technique

    I was very interested in this, since I use a Corsair liquid cooler. Mounting method turns out to be very important.

    EFI Folder Musings

    Each of my "Mini ITX" computers listed below contains two identical storage devices, one primary and a backup (via Carbon Copy Cloner). I have a matching EFI folder on each of the two SSDs. This technique works fine for me. However, recently I committed an external hard disk (USB-to-SATA drive...

    Compiled SSDT Examples for macOS

    FWIW, I have neither of the SSDTs mentioned in post #12, nor do I have any problem booting my computer (at left). So... "no RTC errors." I do have Mattystonnie's ACPI patch installed, though, along with the latest UEFI/BIOS for my motherboard.

    Compiled SSDT Examples for macOS

    If I do not have "SSDT-AWAC" installed on my Z390 I Aorus mobo (I do not), how can I tell if there is a system clock error?

    Clover V5123... ?

    Thanks again for your help. I guess I'll stay with the working Clover v5119. I have read the guide material for OpenCore, but there are just too many things I don't understand, and my computers run just fine using Clover, all 4 of them on v5119.

    Clover V5123... ?

    Thanks again. I looked at the "RAW" sample.plist and it seems to set up the Quirks page with checkmarks in some boxes, and adds a whitelist. The thing is I don't agree with some of the items, such as "xhci port limit = true," since I already have an SSDT that sets my USB ports. So I will pick...

    Clover V5123... ?

    Feartech, thanks for your reply. But... 1) Where is the "sample.plist?" I don't find it in either of your links below. 2) Do I extract the "quirks" (whatever they are) from the "sample.plist" and just add them into my config.plist on its "Quirks" page? (Remember this is Clover, not OC.)

    Clover V5123... ?

    Just for kicks I tried updating my Z390's Clover boot version from 5119 to 5123 (updated via Clover Configurator's "Install/Update Clover" page). After Restart, the AMI screen informed me of a "fatal error" because "Quirks" couldn't be found. And all stopped there. Tried it again, same result...

    FIX for boot hangs after BIOS update (ACPI PATCH)

    @mattystonnie: I have been using your ACPI patch on my High Sierra and (now) Catalina computers for quite a while. It has worked perfectly. But there has been very little clarity (for me) of exactly what it is doing. I have read of "Apple AHCI Port" on other websites that seems to address this...

    GPU selection help!

    FWIW, my AMD RX 580 Nitro+ worked fine under Mojave 10.14.6. And remember, Catalina will not run 32-bit apps whereas Mojave will. Contrary to prevailing opinions on this forum (and elsewhere) I have a problem with recent versions of the MacOS restricting end user's options (i.e. graphics card...

    GPU selection help!

    Apologies for this reply not being on point, but I'm curious exactly what "meh" means in regard to your GTX 1050 Ti. Have you run "Heaven" and "Valley" on it and recorded the frames per second in "Benchmark" mode? For a reference, here are my numbers with that graphics card. I'm running High...

    Solved > Suppressing Disk Icons in Clover

    Thanks, I will try that. (Thought the text had to match the title as shown in Clover with "F3" pressed.) [Edit: Hey, that worked fine, thanks very much!]

    USB Audio DAC - Frustration ...

    I'm confused about why a digital-to-analog converter is needed or desirable... sound quality? Where do you pick up the input signal to it, is it the Hackintosh's green port, or somewhere else? I have Bose Companion 20 stereo speakers and the sound is just fine for me. Of course, my age has...

    Solved > Suppressing Disk Icons in Clover

    I finally upgraded from Mojave (10.14.6) to Catalina (10.15.7), which required changing from HFS+ to the APFS file system. This of course resulted in a bunch of disk icons other than the desired pair to appear in the Clover window. I was able to suppress the "Recovery HD" icon by listing that in...

    Did you compare your version of the Gigabyte Z390 etc. BIOS with the linked web page?

    Catalina USB stick install problem PLEASE HELP!

    If you "Get Info" on both Unibeast and Multibeast, you should have Unibeast version 10.3.0-2 and Multibeast 12.3.0-3. Also what version of your motherboard BIOS are you running? You might need to update it using "Q-Flash."
