    The Ultimate Low Cost Big Sur Hackintosh - Core i5 Dell Optiplex 3020 SFF - LG 4K Monitor

    Hi TRS! Your guide decided me to buy a 3020 SFF that I've just found on eBay for 80€. :thumbup: It's meant to replace a 1st gen 1.25 GHz G4 Mac mini for my 89 year old mother. I think I'll install Mojave, though — as I'm still running El Cap on my own hack! :mrgreen: I'll check at Dortania if...

    How do i generate boot.log in opencore?

    You must run the Debug version of OC. You'll find information at Dortania.

    [HOW TO] OpenCore 0.7.2 > 0.7.3 differences

    Hi miliuco! Been away for a while, so I'll probably wait for 0.7.4 at this point... ;) Thanks anyway for this! :)

    Pre-boot usage

    I have Mojave installed (after cloning it back from a dmg backup) without the other partitions (preboot and recovery), it works perfectly and updates seamlessly — actually, I never kept preboot and recovery on my machine until now. ;) I'm wondering if the following MacOS versions can be...

    [HOW TO] OpenCore 0.7.1 > 0.7.2 differences

    I meant the APFS format itself: will an APFS drive formatted under Mojave be any different than the same one formatted under Big Sur, for example? (like for HDMI 1.0, 1.1, etc.) I guess your answer means no. :)

    Using small USB keys for bootloaders

    I want to share this little trick, useful if you have old USB keys of little capacity (say 1GB): usually they will be formatted as MBR with a FAT32 partition. Well, I've discovered that the EFI partition's size doesn't matter for our bootloaders as long as it's called "EFI" (I'm currently using...

    [HOW TO] OpenCore 0.7.1 > 0.7.2 differences

    Thanks @milluco as always for this essential guide! :thumbup: Just out of curiosity: I suppose APFS MinDate and MinVersion are for providing a better APFS support, depending on the OS — meaning that APFS version in Mojave is not exactly the same as in Big Sur? As I understand it, there's forward...

    Can I run newer versions of macOS? (Already have High Sierra)

    You can check your iGPU capabilities there: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/80817/intel-core-i5-4460-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3-40-ghz.html From my limited experience (I've only tested my iGPU on my Z68 build once and I keep using my NVidia since then), I finally found out...

    Can I run newer versions of macOS? (Already have High Sierra)

    Well, everything we do on our computers is "at our own risk". No, you surely don't risk any physical damage, but I can't guarantee it works as I'm not the source of that EFI and I don't have your mobo. I've checked that EFI for you and it looks ok, but only you can try it on your build. I...

    [GUIDE] Installing 3rd Party Kexts - El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina

    Thanks a lot for those precisions. ;) Of course I revere Rehabman as much as you do and will eternally be grateful for all he brought us! :thumbup: EDIT: and I'm terribly sorry he vanished away with nobody apparently knowing what has become of him.

    Can I run newer versions of macOS? (Already have High Sierra)

    Yes, it looks very close to your build. But of course, at your own risk. ;-) If I were you, I'd try it on a USB key's EFI — even if you know nothing about OpenCore, you just have to put the EFI folder in your EFI (but of course, it's better to know what you're doing...) If by chance everything...

    Robbish's 8yr old ATX IvyBridge Hackintosh GA-Z77-DS3H - i5-3570K - HD 4000 [OpenCore/macOS Big Sur]

    Sniki's USBInjectAll has been updated to v0.7.6 and says "Fixed loading on macOS Mojave and older". Maybe it fixes your issue with v0.7.5?

    [GUIDE] Installing 3rd Party Kexts - El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina

    XHCI is about USB3. Searching for "rehabman injector 300 series XHCI" gives results that say it's been replaced by another one in USBInjectAll repository... But it's rather recommended to patch USB via Hackintool method (or other ones, my favourite one being Corpnewt USBMap method — just search...

    Can I run newer versions of macOS? (Already have High Sierra)

    Oh, sorry! I was not thinking about Xcode. Of course, I understand. :oops: In that case, I suppose you have the skills for using OpenCore instead of Clover, in my particular case it's been quite necessary, but of course it depends on your build. Searching for "Asrock B85-DGS i5 4460 Big Sur", I...

    Can I run newer versions of macOS? (Already have High Sierra)

    Mine will be more of a philosophical answer: what's the use of having the latest MacOS if it's mainly for coding? Yes, our basic instinct pushes us to have the latest top notch of anything, and it's hard to resist... :mrgreen: And if you're ready for facing all the wonderful issues of...

    A guide to update OpenCore 0.x.y to 0.x.y+1

    I confirm: that Patch section has nothing to do there, AFAIK! :crazy: Moreover, the Enabled keys are all set to NO, meaning they're useless, you can safely delete that Patch array!

    A guide to update OpenCore 0.x.y to 0.x.y+1

    This confirms what you get at boot: there's an error somewhere in your config.plist. Here you've got a choice: either do as Feartech wrote or refer to Dortania's guide and start over with Proper Tree and its "OC Clean Snapshot" function — this is my preferred method as it should avoid any typo...

    A guide to update OpenCore 0.x.y to 0.x.y+1

    Anyway, my guess is all this has nothing to do with your issue. The message you have at boot "ocs: Failed to calculate size of array field containing <empty> as type data, context <Patch>" probably means that there's some error in your config.plist in one of the Patch arrays (either ACPI, Booter...
