Hi again! I have to say I´m quite happy with my working hackintosh setup. However, I´d like to make it dual boot with windows now. How should I do it? Is there any guide you´d recommend? Any opencore settings I have to take into account?
I just tried creating a USB installer for windows with the rsync -wha command in terminal, I boot into windows but then I got stuck trying to install. I got an error when I selected the windows drive.

Hi,
Disconnects all other disks (including m.2). The installer should accept the installation.
I just had this problem today ;)

I installed Windows first (which took two days to get right (long story) as opposed to Mac install using Casey's instructions which took a couple of hours :)). Anyway, I had to reinstall Windows after I had installed Mac OS X. I had to remove the Mac OS X drive before I could reinstall Windows. Then reinserted the Mac OS X drive (both are NVM drives).

If you're using the RadeonBoost kext, please type this in Terminal (on Z490 Vision G):
Code:
kextstat | grep -v apple
Do you see the kext listed in the output?

I do not see it there

One more question: If Hotplug of USB3-Devices does not work on my Thunderbolt-Ports (USB2 works, USB3 works only if plugged in before booting) is this unrelated to thunderbolt, or could this be a sign of not properly working thunderbolt? I only have USB devices to test, no TB-device yet...

@CaseySJ I made some tests regarding the patched TB-Firmware and USB3-Hotplug on USBC-Ports:

With patched chip-FW:
-Hotplug not working with TB-SSDT from hackindrom.zapto.org
-Hotplug not working with TB-SSDT from Guy who confirmed working Hotplug without patched TB-chip

With original chip-FW:
-Hotplug working with TB-SSDT from hackindrom.zapto.org
-Hotplug working with TB-SSDT from Guy

I could also confirm longer boot-times (from OC to Login) with patched firmware:
Patched: 25sec
Unpatched: 18sec
Maybe this is also related to this USB-problem, because with patched TB-controller, verbose boot stops at a line with something about USB properties for over 5sec, and with original FW it does not stop there.

I tried two methods for USB-setup, your SSDT+USBInjectAll & USBPorts.kext from Hackintool, but that makes no difference.

I just installed Windows 10 yesterday, so here are some suggestions:
  • Format the Windows NVMe SSD (not the USB install disk) on a Mac (yes, a Mac) using Disk Utility:
    • Name: Windows
    • Format: FAT32
    • Scheme: GUID Partition Map
  • It's important to set the Scheme to GUID Partition Map. This creates an EFI partition on the Windows NVMe (or SATA) SSD.
  • Download Microsoft's Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 (this must be done on a Windows machine) and then use that tool to create the USB install disk.
  • Now physically disconnect all macOS drives from the system. If you fail to do this, the Windows installer will abort.
  • When the Windows installer starts and you reach the screen to Format the destination disk, select the large FAT32 partition on the Windows NVMe SSD (not the smaller EFI partition).
    • Then delete that FAT32 partition.
    • Now it will change to "Unallocated space".
    • Highlight that row.
    • And click Install. Windows will be installed into the "Unallocated space".
  • When Windows is fully installed, you may shut down the system and reinstall the macOS SSDs.
    • At the OpenCore Picker menu you should now see an option to boot Windows.

USB-C hot plug is currently broken in all patched firmware (on-board controller and add-in-cards) on Gigabyte Z490 systems. Please note that if you do not have Thunderbolt devices, but only USB-C devices, you should use the original unflashed firmware.

We're trying to find a solution for USB-C hot plug, but it may take some time and there is no guarantee we'll succeed.

USB-C hot plug does work on Designare Z390 with flashed Thunderbolt firmware, but not on Z490.

That means it's not loading. Have you configured the OpenCore config.plist correctly? Please post screenshot of OpenCore Configurator --> Kernel.

  • CPU ID was masked as follows:
    • Cpuid1Data was changed to EB060800 00000000 00000000 00000000
    • Cpuid1Mask was changed to FFFFFFFF 00000000 00000000 00000000
    • See screenshot down below

It worked but if you work with Docker, it got an error like this:
"filesystem layer verification failed for digest sha256..."
source: Github

Perhaps you have other solution ?

Thanks for that information! I did not know that, but if the problem is already known, then I guess there is nothing I can add or help.
I will see if the soundcard I want to use on that machine works with original FW when it arrives and then decide if I need the patched firmware.
Thanks for your work and your efforts!
