    How to stop Facebook and other sites from tracking you

    I found this thread far too late. I recently almost quit FaceBook because I was in FaceBook Jail for the 5th time this year. Then I thought, they must really love me. I give their employees and algorithms something to do.

    << Solved >> Question About Apple Progress Bar "Progress"

    I mostly get 1/3 of the bar on 1st stage, then right to the desktop. Sometimes I see the second stage, but not often. It is just loading up and the graphical bar either keeps up with it or not. If you have more extensions/drivers/audio plugins etc... to load it will be slower and thus you will...

    PNY 16GB USB installer drives for $3.40

    No, I always grab those and any new versions of kext first... I think it was a missed setting in my 069 config file. Though I did not compare the files to know which one. I just recreated a new config file from scratch and it worked. I must have blown through updating the last time. :lol:

    PNY 16GB USB installer drives for $3.40

    Yes, I don't know why. My config has been very much the same since last summer when I built this system that with only the changes in each newer version of OpenCore release adhered to the OC guide. But I have never been successful in booting a Catalina Installer Media with iMac20,1. I have had...

    PNY 16GB USB installer drives for $3.40

    I found the problem. On my motherboard for a bootable Catalina installer I must use iMac19,1 SMBIOS. I have been using iMac20,1 which works with Big Sur installer, Big Sur and Catalina once they are already installed on a disk. I don't know why then it would not just show the Big Sur installer...

    PNY 16GB USB installer drives for $3.40

    It is GUID Partition Map. And each partition is Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Second try failed to show installers. I recently updated my motherboard bios... so I checked if I had missed something by trying my Catalina 10.15.5 installer and that one works fine.

    PNY 16GB USB installer drives for $3.40

    Well I created 2 partitions on 32GB Thumb drive and created install media for Catalina and Big Sur then put my OC EFI folder on the EFI partition. I restarted, cleared NVRAM and did F12 to select it to boot from. I know the EFI is working because I used OC 0.6.9 and not 070beta which is on my...

    PNY 16GB USB installer drives for $3.40

    If I may... just to understand I want to use 1 thumb drive for Catalina and Big Sur. Create partitions on thumb drive. Run create install media for each OS to a each partition (dose this create different EFI partitions?) Place OpenCore on which EFI? I am using iMac19,1 to boot/install both...

    [GUIDE] OC 10.13.6 Z490 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme + Core i5 10400 + Nvidia GTX 1060

    Either one, I seem to be stuck with the same result. Something (I think basic) that I am missing. I will spend some time on it... will check 4G Encoding and device-id. Thanks MIddleman.

    [GUIDE] OC 10.13.6 Z490 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme + Core i5 10400 + Nvidia GTX 1060

    [GUIDE] OC 10.13.6 Z490 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme + Core i5 10400 + Nvidia GTX 1060

    I am only using ProperTree to edit. I see 0300C59B and AGPMInjector is enabled. I also did not change or add CPUID1Data. Still regarding kext. Do I need to have FakePCIID.kext? (but not FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext).

    [GUIDE] OC 10.13.6 Z490 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme + Core i5 10400 + Nvidia GTX 1060

    Yes CSM is disabled... I know I have to play around with this a while. From my work with Catalina and Bir Sur on my board I know some SMBIOS work better than others at least for initial install. I am just not familiar with iGPU nor spoofing CPU. I will see if I can slim things down and test some...

    [GUIDE] OC 10.13.6 Z490 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme + Core i5 10400 + Nvidia GTX 1060

    Middleman, I took out some kext but don't I need to have FakePCIID.kext? I am trying to take out anything related to wifi, BT and thunderbold as I don't have those. Also I noticed the config has iMacPro not iMac18,3. I tested some changes but still it re-boots after end setconsolemode.

    [GUIDE] OC 10.13.6 Z490 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme + Core i5 10400 + Nvidia GTX 1060

    Thanks for that. After I select the efi off my thumb drive I get like a bunch of text in the middle of my screen (goes by fast) I am guessing OpenCanopy stuff... then I get the OC GUI. I select Install HS. Then I get "end setconsolemode" followed by black screen and another list of text that I...

    [GUIDE] OC 10.13.6 Z490 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme + Core i5 10400 + Nvidia GTX 1060

    Hello, I am trying to boot a High Sierra installer thumb drive with your "High Sierra EFI". I get some text come up over the bios gigabyte logo for split second... then stuck at apple logo without a loading bar. My BIOS settings are good with your list on your guide. I don't understand how to...
