    October 18th 2021 Apple Event: M1X MacBook Pros, Monterey Public Release, New Mac mini ?

    I'm ordering one as soon as available. I will probably continue my Hackintosh journey with a Z590 or Z690... We will have to wait and see. And @trs96 thank you for pulling back on topic. But... "ARM blah blah blah Intel blah blah blah..."

    Apple Previews macOS 12 Monterey - Available Fall 2021

    Im running a Z390 32gig of RAM and do audio all day long on it. Im using Reaper. I also do FCP and Motion. Those with 4K. If I use HDR video it slows it a bit. Audio is not a problem.

    New 24" M1 iMacs come in 7 Colors / Orders starting on April 30th

    Yea, my Macbook Pro from 2016 has 256g of drive space. My next one won't. My hack boots from 2TB. All of these new iMacs seem short on memory and RAM. But we will see how configurable they are in April

    Yes, I am up on Big Sur (Open Core 0.6.3) and it is great. I used the guides embedded in this thread to do it. I had a glitch at first but after resetting my BIOS to default and then the recommended settings here, all is good. My only issues in my kid is home from college and I let him put...

    Really random question. I switched to Open Core was stable all good, upgraded to Big Sur all good. I renamed my boot drive from Catalina to Big Sur, I noticed when I boot, that Open Core picker sees the boot drive still as Catalina. Any issues/explanations for this? System works fine.

    @CaseySJ I am up on Big Sur. I had another crash on Catalina where the screens went blank (I was having these infrequently before) and had the bright idea to check my Kexts again in Library/Extensions. THere was one or two form 2013. Not Hackintosh related but old. I Googled them and low and...

    Once again, you are God of Hackintosh. That totally worked. I am up on OC. Gonna run it under Catalina for a bit before I take the plunge on Big Sur. Thanks Casey!!!

    Thanks, I did the double check on the CFG-Lock. I'll try the CMOS Reset but cant get to it right now. THANK YOU SO MUCH for this awesome thread and your help along the way. I love this machine and its got some legs left for sure.

    During normal play it is 165. He said it was a control game that was 300. I'm gonna have him check when he is finished. Then I can get back in there and tackle Open Core again...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    OK: Yes, Hackintosh Kexts removed. They actually were upon my upgrade to Catalina. (I did double check) I did rebuild the cache following the guide (With those commands) I am running F9i CFG-Lock DISABLE I saw only about 15-20 boot logs stuff scroll by prior to the apple logo and the...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Yea, I went through that and double checked things. I figured out how to get verbose on in OC and it flashes through a few things then goes to the Apple Logo with the white status bar below it, goes just a bit white and then freezes with no more drive activity. I Tried using different USB ports...

    I'll double check. Bios is F9i and CFG-Lock DISABLED (Or it was lol I'll double check) Im booting from USB and having Open Core boot menu then selecting internal M2 drive called "Catalina" Let me go over it again. I'm prone to dumb things like not having an EFI folder in the EFI lol, I sort it...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    OK, Im at this step, double checked all my platform info was copied into config.plist and I get a hang on booting after I select my Catalina drive (or the backup) I can still boot from my Clover Config (untouched so far) EFI on my internal Catalina drive. Does Open Core do verbose booting? (I...

    You are the Man Casey! That's perfect and other than the BIOS upgrade, which I will do, fits my needs. I waited s bit for Catalina and then did full upgrade following your fantastic guide. OpenCore looks like it is the future anyway so, there you go.

    @CaseySJ Are you planning to do a Big Sur with OpenCore update to this unbelievable thread when it comes out? (Yes please please please hoping hoping hoping) I'm still loving this machine big time. As a side note, I got a Samsung T7 and when plugged in to the TB daisy chained off my Raid, it...
