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.
Wonderful! Will try this momentarily.

Update: Success!

@CaseySJ All is working on this new 073 hot plug as well as sleep!

Im NCMacGuy with no beta 7 showing. I cant wait unless you want me to verfiy a 074 build.

let me know ill be happy to help
glad this is working out!
Attached is the pre-release version of OpenCore 0.7.4. Steps needed for Monterey Public Beta 7:
  • Download and rename the top folder to just EFI
  • Copy serial numbers into config.plist --> PlatformInfo
  • Now we need to copy this EFI folder in two places:
    1. Copy it to the EFI partition of a USB flash disk -- but do not eject this EFI partition
    2. Copy it to the EFI partition of the internal macOS SSD -- then eject this EFI partition (very important)
  • Run latest version of OpenCore Configurator (v 2.25.0.0)
    • Then go its Settings menu and change it to OpenCore 0.7.4 Development Version (very important)
    • OpenCore Configurator will restart
  • OpenCore Configurator: Open config.plist from the EFI partition of the USB flash disk
    • Change SecureBootModel to j137 as shown and save the file
    • This change is only made to config.plist in the USB flash disk

  • Keep the USB flash disk connected
  • Reboot
  • At the Gigabyte Splash Screen press F12 to open the BIOS Boot Menu and select the USB flash disk (very important)
  • When OpenCore Picker appears, boot Monterey as usual and log in
  • Go to System Preferences --> Software Update
  • You should now see the option to update to Public Beta 7; begin the process
  • While the update is downloading, eject the USB flash disk and remove it from the computer
  • We will no longer use the USB flash disk
  • The Beta 7 update should proceed automatically from this point

hmm, i did what you said and i was able to dl beta 7, upon relaunch and hitting the install partition it resets after 20 secs.

i think i need to confirm my hd efi is set and then do the following!

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. which i think it is. ill double check ...

also note, I can use 0.74 to boot into existing beta and tb works like .73... looks fine.

#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.

Hi @mrfatcatt

Which Thunderbolt card are you using? GC-Titan Ridge, GC-Maple Ridge...?

Thanks

** Minisforum HX-90 **
...

As it turns out I just received my bare bones HX-90 and I am typing this from Windows 11 that has just been installed. Memory (two 16GB DDR4 SO-DIMMs) and 512GB NVMe SSD were purchased separately from Amazon. I am happy to say:
  • The misspelling has been corrected. The box now reads AMD "Zen 3" Core Architecture.
  • There is no liquid metal residue. The motherboard (both sides) is squeaky clean.
  • Security screws have been replaced with conventional Philips-head screws.
  • As for the misleading claim of carbon fiber chassis, it really does not bother me.
...
Der Bauer has confirmed these changes in the retail version. He even compliments the liquid metal application. The only gripe now is about carbon fiber, which I am thankful they point out. I'm personally okay with this bit of 'marketing exaggeration' because the rest of the product is so good.

Pretty sure this is the only card this board can run. I talk to Gigabyte Support before I brought it.
GC-TITAN RIDGE (rev. 2.0),

Out of curiosity, which Geekbench score do you get with your system if you don't mind testing it?

Did you get onboard wireless features working as well?

Has anyone tried the new AMD Ryzen 5600G or 5700G on a Hackintosh?
Hello,
Purchase, an AMD RYZEN 7 5700 G, on my GIGABYTE B550 VISION D Card to replace my RYZEN 5 3600XT, and my RX 470 GPU,
the Vega 8 will work, it under BIG SUR or Monterey

@trooper85 to clarify you are saying the onboard graphics on the 5700G are working in both Big Sur and Monterey? If so that is huge news.
