Hello @issssac,Hi @CaseySJ and everyone
First of all, thanks for this tremendous guide! It really is thoroughly written and easy to understand even for newbies like me.
Around July I bought this motherboard as well as the 5900x, rx6800xt, broadcom card, and bunch of hardware mentioned in the 1st page. I even bought the CH341a cause i want the full thunderbolt bus working. However, the website that I bought from didn't really update the naming of the board, and I only realize I got the D-P board after it arrived my place. I'm going to try the guide first, if it doesn't work I will have to switch to windows for the time being unfortunately.
My hardware list as below:
MB: B550 vision D-P
Ram: ballistix DDR4-3600mhz 16GB x4
SSD: Aorus Gen4 7000s 1TB
GPU: 5700xt reference (I'm using this GPU from my previous z390 build to test it out first, since i know it works flawlessly)
because it is a D-P board, I would love to get a double confirm from you guys just so I didn't miss any of the steps.
I have been reading the post from page 90 sth and i know i need to update the config.plist and include the realtek kext into the EFI folder.
Since I'm going for a fresh install, I grabbed the 0.7.2 opencore folder, put in the lucy realtek kexts, enabled it from the 12-core config, and also copied the device properties from the 0.7.0 config from #946.
And since I'm going to use my old 5700xt to test out the system before i put in the 6800xt, I also enabled the 5700xt aml.
The config.plist is attached.
Also, should I be using the F2 BIOS or the newest F12 BIOS for the D-P board? I'm going to disable resize BAR anyway.
Thanks for the helps!
We've had some chronic problems with Thunderbolt on the B550 Vision D-P. We were never able to get working/reliable Thunderbolt. An alternative would be the Gigabyte X570S Aero with an add-in Thunderbolt card.
However, you're welcome to experiment with the B550 Vision D-P.
Regarding BIOS, it's okay to start with F12 (with Resizable BAR turned off) and iterate backwards to F2 if problems persist.
Because of the relatively high level of interest in the B550 Vision D-P, please keep us updated on your progress. We'll try to help you as much as we can.
