    [SUCCESS] Old Hack, New Tricks II - Upgrading My GA-Z77X-UP5 TH System to Catalina

    If any of you guys get the USB ports updated, let me know. I’m actually wondering if mine are running below speed now because of how long my time machine has been taking on some backups. I’ll be looking into that this week. EDIT: OK usb port mapping seems like a pain, but I may have figured out...

    I tried a couple different configs with this-- having the IGPU be set in both modes and no luck. Also today I had an error saying the USB device was drawing too much power-- that might be something I have to look into as well, and everything seems back to normal as I'm sitting here. I used to...

    As promised, my config. I'm still using the setup on my username, so there are no drivers running the 760 and I don't think the Hires opencore boot screen is working correctly. Also attaching an image of the EFI folder. OpenCanopy is needed for the UI for opencore, as are everything in the...

    I'll absolutely post the config in the next day or two. I haven't had to do anything for USB mapping so far-- it just seems to work better than it ever did on clover now. Machine is no longer not booting with drives plugged into the front and weird issues like that. Audio worked straight away...

    One last update for the past little while for those of you still kicking around on this motherboard -- I switched over to opencore last week by first doing a test run on a USB and then yesterday copying over the full EFI and replacing Clover/removing some old kexts that multibeast/unibeast had...

    Well it turns out it doesn’t matter. I tried updating AppleIntelE1000e and it didn’t help, so I moved on to deleting it. Internet still works but I’m still having the same problem. My hackintosh is looking more and more like a regular PC everyday.

    Well I finally got into looking into my kexts. Found IntelMausi and deleted it but it looks like i'm still hitting some kind of lock up point on the network trying to transfer a terabyte of files from time machine to a local server. do any of these kexts look suspect to you? or was it simply...

    I can say with certainty that this issue existed before I had openmediavault set up, but for some reason local networking seems to be what "depletes" the networking faster and makes the computer give up. I've had my computer on for a month or two in the past and not had to restart because of...

    No, unfortunately not. I was really excited because I thought we had cracked the code, but still, the network dies relatively quickly. In this case I have a media server I set up and am trying to copy some files to it, and at some point it just gets stuck every time, and then web browsers no...

    Maybe that's what it is-- I have one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GMPZ0A/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 in my system because that was what was recommended at the time, but I don't actually use it anymore because I have ethernet where my machine is, as as far as I've known it stopped working a...

    [SUCCESS] Old Hack, New Tricks II - Upgrading My GA-Z77X-UP5 TH System to Catalina

    How are everyone's systems holding up? I've started to use mine less and less due to a bug that seems to affect the networking. I recently set up an openmediavault but am having trouble with my system being unable to connect to the internet (or other comuters on the network) and locking up the...

    Thanks @itwas for your information! I was able to get my system up to Catalina this week. Everything continues to work great-- mainly just bumping this thread again to ask if anyone had any success getting their machine to sleep or if anyone has any experience getting clover to a higher...

    Would you guys have any idea why Hackintool says that my kexts aren’t the latest version? I downloaded them from their respective githubs and used hackintool to install them but no matter how many times I restart my machine hackintool still says otherwise. Also, the file a themselves say they...

    well you're certainly making me reconsider it. I don't think I will change it now. Thank you for your input.

    I'm thinking about updating my system defintion from 13,2 to 14,2. Do any of you guys have experience doing this? I don't want it to lock me out of iCloud or anything.

    two more questions for you guys-- does your machine ever just quit on the network? When I'm running Plex my machine will just go offline, regardless of ethernet or wifi. It's quite frustrating. Also do any of you have a 4k Screen? ever since I hooked mine up, my clover comes in very low res...

    turns out the main cause was that one of my windows drives died. that was what was causing the slow boot. only thing I'd like to figure out now is how to get the clover screen to look decent now that i'm on a 4k monitor. Doesn't seem like I can turn off CSM because then I boot to a black...

    Sadly I think my machine is just getting old. On every boot it tells me a disc inserted is the wrong format but I can't figure out what it thinks it the wrong format-- maybe my windows partition? My system won't sleep, frequently it seems to just junk up from leaving it on too long even if...

    [SUCCESS] Old Hack, New Tricks II - Upgrading My GA-Z77X-UP5 TH System to Catalina

    OK the first part of what you said makes alot of sense! My system also seems to select the correct boot drive as well, but I will be careful of that when I update. The non-sleeping thing bothers me, but the USB ports bother me more. I'm not really sure what I should try to do about them-- I...

    So another question for me is-- why does this matter? Your guide seems otherwise straightforward-- making backups, updating kexts, updating clover, but this sticks out to me and I'm afraid to upgrade until I understand. Furthermore-- does your machine sleep? Mine doesn't and I'm not sure what...
