We're running out of options, so it's down to process of elimination...
  • Do you have another monitor?
  • Have you tried CPUID:

@CaseySJ Just curious in your opinion how different is the Z490 Vision D vs Z490 AORUS Xreme. Got my eye kind of set on the look of the xtreme. Thoughts, advise?
The Z490 AORUS Xtreme is the most feature packed board in Gigabyte's Z490 lineup. My only concerns about it are:
  • The number of PCIe lanes on Z490 is just as limited as Z390.
  • Intel 10th Gen CPUs are still based on Skylake architecture, and are still 14nm parts.
  • Although the AORUS Xtreme packs the most features, the questions to ask are:
    • Do you need those features or want those features?
    • Do you want to spend top dollar on an architecture that is expected to be completely replaced/updated in about a year?

Because the boot process is stalling shortly after gIOScreenLockState, the problem most likely lies somewhere in the video display chain. Thunderbolt monitors are more complicated and possibly more troublesome than simple DP 1.2/1.4 and HDMI 2.0 monitors. If the Thunderbolt monitor provides DP and HDMI inputs, then we should use those inputs before using the Thunderbolt input.

Other general suggestions:
  • Check that the video cable is certified for DP 1.2/1.4 or HDMI 2.0
  • If the monitor has a Reset option in its on-board menu, select that
  • Consider re-creating the USB install disk

Your last option failed, same result.

Need to change a monitor.
What would you recommand? hunderbolt display Apple may not simplify the process.
Any specificity to take into account?

Once again thanks so much ! 11pm bed time for me, ... :)
Hope I can get some recommendation for my breakdfast early morning. And you later... Good night too !

I've got some very good news. The bidirectional DP<=>USB cable works flawlessly. Might want to add this to the "recommended items" (if you have a USB monitor of course!)

The build guide already includes a USB-C to DisplayPort cable, albeit for iGPU to drive a DP monitor. In your case, you're using the same kind of cable but connecting your AMD GPU (DisplayPort) to a USB-C monitor, effectively using the cable in reverse.

@CaseySJ Is it actually problematic to enable FileVault? I've disabled it so far, just in case.

** PRE-RELEASE: OpenCore 0.6.0 EFI for Z490 Vision D **
Please do not quote this post in its entirely. Use a link instead.​

Each time a new version of OpenCore is released, a new EFI ZIP is added to the build guide in Post #1. Although OpenCore 0.6.0 is not yet official, in an effort to facilitate the update when it does get released, attached is a pre-release version for Z490 Vision D.

This EFI is for beta testing purposes and should be installed into the EFI partition of a USB Flash Drive. It should not be installed in the main macOS SSD.

This EFI contains the following changes:

Bootloader / Kexts:
All of the kexts listed below are RELEASE builds (not DEBUG), but are unofficial builds that are based on all commits as of August 1, 2020.
  • OpenCore 0.6.0 pre-release
  • VirtualSMC 1.1.5 pre-release
  • Lilu 1.4.6 pre-release
  • WhateverGreen 1.4.1 pre-release
  • AppleALC 1.5.1 pre-release
  • NVMeFix 1.0.3 pre-release
config.plist Changes:
  • Misc --> Boot --> Picker Attributes --> 9
  • Misc --> Security --> BootProtect --> Bootstrap
  • ACPI --> SSDT-SBUS-MCHC (Fix AppleSMBus support in macOS)
  • ACPI --> SSDT-GPRW (Disable wake from USB/Bluetooth; wake only with power button) -- Disabled by default
  • ACPI --> Patch --> change Method(GPRW,2,N) to XPRW, pair with SSDT-GPRW.aml -- Disabled by default
  • Kernel --> Patch --> SATA Hot Swap I/O Error Fix (for SATA Hot Plug) -- Disabled by default

How to Use:
  1. Find a USB flash disk with an EFI partition, or format the USB flash disk in Disk Utility with Scheme = GUID Partition Map and Format = MacOS Extended (Journaled).
  2. Mount EFI partition of the USB flash disk.
  3. Download the attached ZIP into the top level of the EFI partition of the USB flash disk. When the file is unzipped, there will be a folder called OC-060-VISION-D-PRE-RELEASE
  4. Rename this folder to EFI, otherwise the system will not boot.
  5. Inside the EFI/OC subfolder are two standard config files:
    • config-AMD-GPU.plist (choose this if using an AMD GPU)
    • config-Intel-iGPU.plist (choose this only if no AMD GPU is present)
  6. Pick one of the files above, rename it to config.plist, and open this config.plist in OpenCore Configurator version 2.7.1.0 or later.
  7. From OpenCore Configurator's File --> Preferences, select Official --> OC 0.6.0 Development Version as shown:
    Screen Shot 2020-08-02 at 5.12.57 AM.pngScreen Shot 2020-08-02 at 5.12.23 AM.png
  8. Click on PlatformInfo --> DataHub - Generic - PlatformNVRAM and copy/paste existing serial numbers and UUID into the fields shown in red.
    Screen Shot 2020-08-01 at 3.27.34 PM.png
  9. Save the file.
  10. Reboot and press F12 at the BIOS Splash Screen. When the BIOS Boot Menu (not OpenCore Picker) appears, select the USB flash disk.
  11. Warning: It may be necessary to reset NVRAM one time prior to booting macOS. This can be done by pressing spacebar at the OpenCore Picker and choosing Reset NVRAM. On multi-boot systems, select the default startup disk in System Preferences --> Startup Disk.
  12. At the OpenCore 0.6.0 Picker menu, select and boot the internal macOS disk.

Updates:
  • 2 Aug 2020: Updated config.plist to OC 0.6.0 spec. It may be necessary to Reset NVRAM one time before booting into macOS using the new config.plist. This can be done by pressing spacebar at the OpenCore Picker and choosing Reset NVRAM.
