    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    With the type A 3.1 I should get 10 GB/s right so no advantage over the USB C in this scenario...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Installed the 970 Pro, what a difference. Wont be cheaping out again. Now I have another little project. I have not been using the USB C on my machine, not needed yet, however, I am getting an external enclosure for the Adata NVME blade that is now on my desk and need to connect to the USB C...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Got a 970 Pro arriving today. Never been thrilled with the Adata. Thanks for the explanation which makes sense to me now. I have another Adata with my Win10 install on it and it also suffers from poor write speeds so I thought it was likely hardware related

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    @pastrychef - I have an Adata XPG SX8200Pro 512GB M.2 drive that I am using as my hackintosh drive. I'm getting good read speeds of circa 3000 MB/s but the write speeds are varying significantly from 500MB/s to 1250MB/s - I am beginning to wonder if this brand/model ssd is just not a good match...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    OK, I have taken the plunge and purchased a 4k monitor, its a LG 27UL850 27" UHD. I have no experience with 4k monitors but have read they can be tricky. I am connected with a Display Port to HDMI cable. I am getting 4k in windows but not on the hackintosh. Here is what I am seeing in system...

    Cable arrives later today, I'll let you know what happens. If the DisplayPort to Thunderbolt on the iMac doesn't work, then I may have to enable Thunderbolt on the hack which I haven't done yet. You have TB working right?

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    @pastrychef I've just inherited a 2013 i7 Haswell iMac 27" 4K. I am planning to use it basically as a monitor for my Z390M hackintosh. Of course, I could swap out the iMacs installed HDD for an SSD but then I can't run Big Sur only Catalina hence basically thinking of using it as a monitor. I...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    @tedyun and @pastrychef - Happened again today with the ironically named HP Smart app. Seem to have found a solution. In app store click on Store/sign out on the menu bar. Sign out. Restart. Sign back in to app store. Issue appears fixed. Note, signing out and back in on the app store without...

    Good to know it's not just me. I think I have only seen it with Nord VPN twice and Messenger once, other apps seem fine. Maybe it is an app/app store specific problem rather than anything to do with our setups? I'll report back if and when it happens again

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    I've had it two or three times over last 3 months. Tried connecting my phone wireless hotspot and same error. I deleted app and then downloaded newest version. Now all good. Weird. Not a big issue for me. My OCD can cope with this. :lol:

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Greetings all, keep getting this error from app store when updating. Not on all apps, just on some. I can get round it by deleting the app and reinstalling. No other issues with iMessage or app store. Anyone else getting this?

    Update - I decided it was time to learn how to update OC myself rather than cannibalising yours, appreciate all your efforts but gotta learn right? Took me out of my comfort zone but I used the dortania guide Here and the Sanity Checker and I am up and running with 0.6.6 Your version checks out...

    Copied EFI 0.6.6 from post #1 . Replaced EFI on my USB drive seen as "UEFI:SanDisk, Partition1" in clip below. Cleared NVRAM, Select "UEFI:SanDisk, Partition 1" for boot, immediate "Halting on Critical Error"

    That’s the only message I get on screen, nothing else. I tried it with your 0.6.6 efi unmodified (removed the read me file) and thats the message I get.

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Hi, using your 0.6.6 as a template, adapted as needed for my system, I get "Halt on critical error" immediately after BIOS splash screen I tried your 0.6.6 then with no changes, same "Halt on Critical Error". Thought maybe I had an iffy USB drive, tried alternative, same behaviour and both fine...

    Thanks @pastrychef - the guide changes the image shown when you select your login name, which is different to the one shown before you select the user. The path to that file is in the local user library/caches folder and can be edited. The system wide one of course is on the system volume and...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Might seem like a small thing but I am not at all a fan of the greeter screen that I get in Big Sur when switching users. It is the Big Sur Graphic.heic that is shown and I don't like it. Someone over at IM helped me a bit but I've hit a wall. I guess this could be considered off topic, and as...
