@CaseySJ

I am planning to get this NVMe Adapter and install one M.2 drive and possible Bluetooth WiFi card in one more slot? Could you please tell which Bluetooth/WiFi card will be compatible with this adapter and this hackintosh. Thanks
The product description for the NVMe adapter states:
  • SSD M.2 SATA B-Key
  • M&B-Key
  • M.2 PCIe M-Key
Unfortunately these are incompatible with Key A/E (Socket 1) that is used by WiFi/BT modules.

This is Key A/E:

Look at the three items in GREEN. They are B Key, M Key, and M+B Key:

We can see that Key A/E is different and hence the NVMe PCIe card you referenced will not work with a WiFi/BT module.

Ha! If you post your EFI (without serial numbers) I'll update it for you to OC 0.7.3. Also need to know which AMD Ryzen processor you have (to configure AMD kernel patches correctly).


Some questions about your Gigabyte X570s AERO G:
  • Which Thunderbolt add-in-card are you using?
  • Does Thunderbolt hot-plug work?
  • Does on-board Ethernet work (Intel i225-V)?
  • Are you experiencing any problems with sleep/wake?
Im out town ..i ll get you info and files in a few days. Thanks

@CaseySJ Here is my OC for X570S AERO G BIOS x570S - minus the serials

#1/2 I have a StarTech Akikio and the Apple TB adapter..THEY ALL WORK HOT PLUGED, I just tried it. For me when I go from Windows to Monterey just doing hot plug is good, and I'm set when I get in macOS after a warm boot.
#3 Ethernet is 100 percent good
#4 No issues with sleep wake...

This is a very good audio motherboard, like I said before

My AMD for the new OC 0.7.4 is
Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core, 16-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor

The motherboard arrived on Tuesday while I was traveling. My first impression it that it's a BEAST. No joke; it easily ways 5+ lbs. Unfortunately, my new Corsair 7000D Airflow also arrived Tuesday but was severely damaged. I returned it to Best Buy, and promptly ordered a white 5000D Airflow direct from Corsair along with a custom water-cooling loop and 64GB of 3600MHz memory. I've got the 5950X in already, but have to wait for everything else to arrive later this week before I can start building my new rig. I'll let you know once I've got it up and running.

@CaseySJ Thought you might be interested in the status X570 of my build. I'm having some issues sourcing all the parts for the cooling loop, but the main components are finally in the case. My 6900 XT and power supply will be last pieces to go in since they are coming out of my current hackintosh. Unfortunately, this build is going to take a bit longer than expected to complete as we are in the process of moving out of state. :eek:

So far, the build includes:
  • Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme
  • Ryzen 5950X
  • 2TB Samsung 980 PRO NVMe
  • Corsair
    • 5000D Airflow white case
    • Dual X5 360mm radiators
    • CPU XC7 & XG7 6900XT water blocks
    • 10 QL120 fans
    • XD5 Reservoir & pump
  • CableMod blue & silver custom cables for power delivery

I haven't been able to fire it up yet since I'm still waiting for parts of the cooling loop. Corsair has been shipping items direct from China, so my 3-way splitter, drain valve, and 45 degree fittings are stuck in Customs somewhere. I'm also waiting for the blue coolant to arrive next week. Big sad! :-X

Monterey Public Beta 7 FINALLY Installed!

I have installed Monterey Public Betas prior to Beta 7 on my B550 Vision D without difficulties. However, with other hackintosh builds others had reported that OC 0.7.4 was required to install Beta 7, and that had worked for me.

So I installed OC 0.7.4 on this B550 Vision D, and attempted to update to Beta 7. However, Software Update kept showing that Monterey was up to date, and refused to offer Beta 7.

I was about to give up when a post on another TonyMac forum suggested changing the config.plist Misc -> Security -> SecureBootModel value. I copied my working config.plist to a USB stick and changed SecureBootModel from "Disabled" to J137 for iMacPro1,1.

I booted using the revised USB EFI, and Software Update finally displayed the Beta 7 update. I downloaded the update and at the first reboot I tried to reboot to the Macintosh HD drive in the OC picker using the revised USB EFI. However, the Apple logo appeared, but hung.

I rebooted and used the EFI on my boot drive which had Misc -> Security -> SecureBootModel set to "Disabled." With that the update completed satisfactorily and I finally have Monterey Public Beta 7 installed.

I am happy to confirm what @xtreem.p reported earlier. The SmallTreeIntel82576 kext again works with Beta 7 and I again have Ethernet available.

@mrfatcatt,

It's really good to know that all of the following functions are working on Gigabyte X570S AERO G:
  • Thunderbolt hot plug
  • Sleep / wake
  • Ethernet
Because Gigabyte B550 Vision D is virtually impossible to find, especially at a decent price, the X570S AERO looks to be a totally viable alternative.

So I'll support the X570S AERO G from now on by adding it to HackinDROM.

Meanwhile please try the attached EFI folder that has been updated to OpenCore 0.7.3 for an 8-core CPU. Simply rename the top-level folder to EFI.

Update: Added to HackinDROM.

Awesome! We'll wait patiently for the end result.
