Made no difference for me unfortunately!
I'm booting from a Sabrent Rocket NVMe SSD installed in the bottom (M2P) slot. Only 6-10 seconds of delay. However, I must also say that log entries are asynchronous, so the "delay" does not mean the system is stalled because other threads continue to run. But because you're noticing an actual measured delay (i.e. using a stopwatch) when booting from NVMe versus SATA SSD, then there is something there. But I would not really worry about it.

Total boot time from OpenCore Picker to macOS Login Screen: 24.55 seconds

I guess an extra few seconds at boot is nothing to worry about. Just annoying that an SSD I bought 6 years ago and had in my old MacBook Pro boots my new system twice as fast as a brand new M.2 :lol:

The more pressing issue for me is why my GPU is only running at half lane width. Can't seem to find anything online!

Understandable.

This is the more perplexing issue. Maybe fixing this will fix the NVMe startup time as well. Seems like a PCI bus problem. If Gigabyte has not been helpful, I wonder if it's worth exchanging the board. Are you within your return/exchange window?

And have you tried a different AMD GPU?

I bought all the hardware at the end of June - I'll check and see. As everything still "works" I figured I'd just make do with it, but it's annoying me more and more that it's all not working as it "should".

I haven't. This being my first build, I don't have access to any other hardware. Due to the Coronavirus and being a musician, I've had no income since March, so putting this computer together was a stretch in the first place - Otherwise I probably would have just bought another Vision D/RX580 to diagnose the problem, then sent back the faulty (if any) components.

Hi all, firstly, thanks so much for all the valuable info and the time and effort that has gone into making this resource!

I've got a working Catalina install on this setup which I've been running pretty much problem-free since early July:

OS: Catalina 10.15.5/OpenCore 0.5.9/SMBIOS iMac 19,1
Mobo: Gigabyte Z490 Vision D
CPU: Intel Core i7 10700K
Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S with extra fan (originally had the D15 but swapped to the S so I could use PCIE slot 1)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000MHz 32GB (16GBx2)
Power Supply: Corsair RM650
GPU: Asus Radeon 8GB OC RX580
Case: BeQuiet! Pure Base 500 window (with 3x140mm Pure Wings 2 fans - one on the back, 2 on the front)
Hi Higgie, thanks for sharing.
I'd like to confirm if you tried the NH-D15 will block the PCIE slot 1 (graphics card).
I've just brought NH-D15, if you confirmed(tried), I must swap to D15S too.
Thank you.

Hi, yes I bought the D15 without looking at the compatibility chart that Noctua have on their website. It definitely blocks the top PCIE slot on the Z490 Designare. I returned it and bought the ‘S’ model and can confirm everything fits, although once the GPU is in the top slot, popping the tab if you need get it out again can be quite tricky!

Hey
I'm planning to buy a new PC and to dual boot Windows for gaming and macOS for programming
So I just wanted to make sure my components are compatible and that it would be suitable for this guide before I order

[TD]NH-D15 Chromax Black 140MM 1500RPM 82CFM Model[/TD]

The NH-D15 is not compatible with that motherboard... Look at the NH-D15S. I am looking at a similar build right now. You maybe able to add another Noctua fan onto the NH-D15S to get similar, if not better performance than the D15.

Oh, I just saw the above post.. sorry for the duplicate answer. but the added FAN should give you the added cooling performance that matches if not exceeds the standard D15. (From what I have read)

One of the reasons that I ordered Vision g is that it comes without WiFi because I do not want to have Broadcom with 4 antennas plus wifi6 antennas on the computer sitting next to me. Am I crazy and tripping?

I need to have 10 gbit connection since my qnap will be in the closet and I ran cables in few rooms in the new house so Asus 10 gbit I hope it will work as it worked on z170 gaming 7 gigabyte.

I used on original iMac 2019 tb3 with qnap but it was awful experience every time after sleep it would not connect and omg moving to 10 gbit wasa saver.

I do not really need WiFi, only by for my apple keyboard and Magic Trackpad, will that work with the intel one without Broadcom ? Will that side thing (forgot the name) will not work putting my iPad Pro next to it? I have fanvi 1200ac. I am just thinking now returning vision g specially that both are now even cheaper 20$ And maybe ordering D but. It sure if 100$ extra is worsted and I just do not want to have double WiFi to fry my head next to it

The one in the middle. The one closest to CPU doesn't work anyways right now. For reference I'm using a WD Black SN750 1TB with model number WDS1000TRX0C-00SJG0 manufactured in Feb 2020, running the latest firmware.

FWIW, before I installed macOS on this, I did install the latest Windows 10 release 2004

Will do still waiting for the cpu, coming on Friday

Successfully deployed my first Hackintosh thanks to this build!

Had trouble with my initial Clover install then stumbled on this (very similar) build so figured I'd try following the steps.
BOOM!!! I stuck to the steps verbatim and it installed and booted first time and took less than an hour! Brilliant write-up, step-by-step instructions and attached file sets! Thank you CaseySJ!

The ONLY 2 small changes to the step-by-step instructions I'd suggest are to do with the "Vision G" - specific part.

(1) Suggest a spoiler link for the "Vision G" peeps before end of Step 4 (ie: during OpenCore Configurator and before Copy EFI folder to EFI partition).

(2) The name of the file in the G Package is “SSDT-UIAC-VISION-G-V2.aml” so I have used this file name in place for both the below steps:
  • In the OpenCore ACPI folder, replace SSDT-UIAC-VISION-D-V2.aml with SSDT-UIAC-VISION-G-V1.aml located in the attached Vision G Package.zip
  • Then open config.plist in OpenCore Configurator and change the rename SSDT-UIAC-VISION-D-V2.aml to SSDT-UIAC-VISION-G-V1.aml in the ACPI section.
Unfortunately I'm stuck with my wired USB kbd/mouse while my Magic Mouse & KBD await a working Bluetooth/Wireless solution - awaiting components. Wired Internet for now - works great!

G.
