Have you tried to remove fenvi card and see if sleep works? Sometimes Fenvi card could be at fault for sleep issues.

Hello guys,

I’m new to this thread, but after reading almost all the posts, here is my contribution based on all your work with opencore 6.1, with Centos 7 and windows 10 on separate hard drives and opencanopy up and running. I have not seen any bios reset for a while, but I wouldn’t say it’s gone though…

About the boot problem, In the new config.plist of opencore 6.1 there is a new quirk under Kernel/Quirks called “DisableRtcChecksum” which is probably helping, but again let's wait to see if it solves it...

Documentation says about this quirk: “Prevents AppleRTC from writing to primary checksum (0x58-0x59), required for users who either receive BIOS reset or are sent into Safe mode after reboot/shutdown".

Well, it's been a bit of time, but I thought I would ask about your Gigabyte X299X Aorus Master: Have you had any progress/improvement with the board?

I ask because I'm considering buying it, and wondered if the F3d bios has made any improvements? Or have you just given up on this board?

I've seen some EFIs listed on this board that claim to work well on this board, but I thought I'd ask just in case you have more thoughts on this board.

hi sorry for the super late reply
when i ordered my x299x i also ordered an aorus 5700xt to be able to run mac os
i never been a fan of AMD but i did it just to be able to run mac os
because i really like mac os
but after the problem with the board i sold the card
because i honestly didn't had any use for it
since i don't have a compatible card with mac os i haven't tried installing mac os anymore on that board

why i decided to do was wait a little longer for clover or open core to update their bootloaders
maybe they will add something that will add support for that board

since there is no way to get a aorus 3090 master for now
i decided to buy an old cheap nvidia 780 which is compatible with mac os

once the card arrives, i will try again but i think big sur will be release any time soon this month

i was about to exchange my board for the aorus master x299 which it looks almost identical to the x299x
but i didn't

once the 780 arrives i will try again with the lastest version of clover or open core and post the results

the last time i tried i had some progress but i only got up to the 5700xt black screen
almost about to load the installer, i tried
debug=0x100 agdpmod=pikera

also tried this
"if you have a black screen after volume selection, make sure ProvideConsoleGOP is set to true"

with and without whatever green kext none of that worked

i think i will have better chance now with the nvidia 780
because the 780 doesn't have the black screen problem the 5700 xt has
the 780 card should arrive this week coming up

Thanks for the reply; wasn't late at all, not by my standards.....

I have a Radeon 7, which with the exception of the Vega 56 and 64, is one of the most compatible AMD cards out there, and it does work well, even with all the stuff I'm running. The 5xxx AMD cards, well, I read and hear a lot of folks having lots of issue with them, even though they are supposed to be compatible at least with Catalina.

I have a X299 Asus board that works okay. But I am very sick of Asus's idiosyncracies and bugs in their bios. For example, when I reboot, often the screen will flash very quickly as if it's going to load the bios, then it goes off into never - never land and doesn't load at all. This happens often after I reboot from the Mac side. A hard reset (pressing the reset button and holding for a count of 3 - 5) or cold boot fixes it. But that's one example - there are other oddities which I'm really tired of.

However, I run Catalina, Big Sur Beta (9), Mojave, Windows 10 and Ubuntu, and once loaded, they run fine. So, it sounds like a trade-off if I were to pursue the X299X Aorus Master. More like trading one set of problems for another set of problems....oh well.

Thanks again for the reply.

the 780 card should arrive this week coming up
The files in this post https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/gigabyte-x299x-catalina-support.288625/post-2167926 are working just fine on 3 of my machines. Need a little clean up but it runs. When using it reset NVRAM after every reboot while installing. When all set up and running you don't need to do that again. OpenCore runs just fine. These files are for 18 core. So adjust TC file according you CPU.
