@CaseySJ so it seems like the Thunderbolt 4 dock I have most likely runs USB-Alt mode which may be why USB devices aren’t showing up. Going to return it. I flashed my v1 GC-Titan Ridge to NVM 67 and it’s working fine in my system and reverted the v2 back to its original firmware. Might sell it to a friend who wants to try it with his machine.

I’ll wait for more news on Thunderbolt 4 development with Titan-Ridge- if there’s any before attempting again. Thanks for all the help!

@CaseySJ there is one more thing I gotta ask.

So in this process, I noticed in the BIOS that all the drives are showing up from my Caldigit dock. But in MacOS, only some of them do. I end up playing swap meet with the ports until they all show up.

This behaviour happens with both cards with all the firmware I tested. It seems like the dock is actually picking them up (because I seen them in the BIOS list on boot) but not in MacOS. Sometime none show up, sometime they all show up, sometimes one or 2 of them show up (there’s 3)

My Thunderbolt 3 audio interface (Apollo X4) always comes up without issue.

Is there something I need to change in MacOS to fix this?

So working through my first attempt at using OpenCore (0.84) to hackintosh (monterey) my Rampage VI wt 7900x & Radeon 6950.
I've worked through the initial problems, but I'm now crashing after selecting "install macOS Monterey (external)" from the open core picker screen, it goes through a bunch of stuff and finally dies with the screen getting garbled & the NO symbol on the screen.

There's DSMOS has arrived
The last two lines mention "Cannot read PMU offset from SMC" and the next line ends with AppleSMCRTC. There's also prior to that some messages about AppleALCU, Failled to alloc class and did not start, failed to load.

Any suggestions?

Updated to 12.6. Smooth sailing here
Hi Spyder, just saw your successful post. Was there any changes that you needed to make first before updating from v12.5 to v12.6? If so, could you let me know? Thanks.

Also, would you by any chance have the a clean EFI that would work for me if mine doesn't update? I'm going to try it here soon. Just checking to make sure if I need any help. I'll let everyone know if the update works or not. Thanks.

I didn't have to update anything but press update and all went smooth.
As for the EFI, you don't want to use mine as I have made board/ram specific settings to the config file.
However, I did use the base latest OC EFI from this guide. Followed the guide in detail and everything works!

Thanks for letting me know. If there is any way that you could provide the link to that guide, I would appreciate that. Thanks again.

UPDATE: Well, I tried just updating to 12.6 and it worked just fine without changing anything at all to my existing EFI. But thank you anyway for reaching back out to me as quickly as you did! Always appreciated! :cool:

I use the WD SN750 2TB NVMe and it works (using Monterey v12.5). BUT when I'm trying to start from another SSD (like I did when trying to boot into Ventura beta using my Samsung 850 EVO SSD), I have to open my case and take out (each and every time), my WD SN750 before I start my system, in order for the other SSD to boot.

Now if I have the same 850, 860, 870 EVO SSD using the same Monterey v12.5 OS, then I can boot into any of them, even WITH the WD SN750. It's weird that it works doing it that way, but can't if I'm booting from another SSD into Ventura beta while the WD SN750 drive in in the system. Can't figure that out?

Aside from that, it is a good drive. Hope this helps.
One question, do you use nvmefix.kext for your wd sn750 or do you use it the same way because you have other drives from other brands?
do you advise using that kext? I don't know if it's necessary.
and in opencore the default setapfstrimtimeout option is -1 , there are people who use 0 , for sn750/sn850 disks which is better ?

Thanks @tucoboy

NVMeFix should never be necessary to boot, it only fixes some aspects of power management. But it can actually make a system unbootable with some drives it doesn't manage (namely: Kioxia XD5 data centre drives with power-loss protection).
Try with and without and see if it makes a difference.

Hey, I was going to ask, have you tried the new Ventura beta? I've had some help here but to no avail. Just was curious if you have tried it, if it's working for you. Let me know what you can, thanks! :cool:

Nah, I only update regular releases. Don't plan on messing with any betas.
