You may have seen this already: Radeon RX 6xxx support already seems to exist in macOS Big Sur.

Nice. I hope AMD has done something to prevent a repeat of the RTX 3080 launch.

And Gigabyte. Please. We need AMD GPU in the Vision series.

We can try two things one by one:
  1. First, please try unchecking NVMeFix.kext from OpenCore Configurator --> Kernel.
    • Does macOS boot?
  2. If not, in which M.2 slot is the SK Hynix NVMe SSD installed? It may be possible to create an SSDT that hides it from macOS, but allows Windows to use it.
@CaseySJ tried first solution to disable nvmefix.kext but same issue. Macos does not boot and stop at the exact same error.
Looks like I might have to follow the SSDT path.
any idea/suggestion on how to create such SSDT? I am currently using yours. The hynix drive will be installed in the last slot next to the pcie x4 slot. I have removed it from the time being.

Also not related to this thread but a few people with a vision D have experienced hanging on boot after a restart. I have the exact same issue and I don't think it is related to the MB being faulty. if from opencore I boot windows 10 and from windows 10 I select restart, it restarts with no issue. The gigabyte logo is displayed along with the options at the bottom of the screen (F12:boot, etc.). Then after a few seconds the options disappear leaving only the logo and then the boot picker is displayed. And I can repeat the procedure over and over. However, if I boot macos then I select restart, the system restarts, gigabyte logo and options are displayed and then it is stuck on that screen. The options do not disappear. And this will happen all the time. Only option is to power off when stuck on the logo then power on and it is ok. I don't know what it is but something happens maybe at the bios level or OC level when a restart is performed from macos.

I'll send you an SSDT to try shortly.

Update: Please try one of the attached SSDTs at a time. These have not been tested so you're the "COVID vaccine test subject"! ;)

Apologies if I'm replying out of turn as I haven't followed every detail, but just in case...

If it's a file permission problem (as opposed to a filesystem read-only problem) maybe you just need to run the command as root:

sudo mv ioupsd ioupsd.ORIG

Thanks, but that didn't work either. See attached.

Next step will be to test the behavior of splitting the both the HDMI signal and the DP signal.

Splitting the HDMI signal for a total of 4 HDMI displays (two pairs) including one HD television (at 60hz) and running alongside two DP monitors was not an issue at all. All HDMI monitors are 1920x1080. DP monitors are 3440x1440 and 2560x1440) and running of their each their own DP port on the RX 580.
Not sure right now if I will need to split the DP signal as well, but will let report back if I get to test it.

Great! I had been testing the itlwmx kext and the Bluetooth as well with Heliport, but this new version works so much better. With the previous version I got randomly disconnected all the time plus download speeds really sucked. I tried to update to the new version yesterday, and I couldn't do it. When I put the airport driver, I just couldn't boot. I didn´t have time to check the verbose screen to see what was causing the error so I just reversed, kept on with Heliport and the new version of itlwm. I don´t know what you did to be able to run airport, but I downloaded your EFI, and I just got it working. You´re the best Casey! :)

Still not the best download speeds but developing of these drivers is going fast and well.

On another side of things.... maybe you can help me out with an issue I´m having. I use the apple wired keyboard, and I can´t get the f3 and f4 keys to work. If I use them in conjunction with the fn key, mission control and launchpad are working fine, but whenever I try f3 and f4 without fn nothing happens. I even tried an online application to test it and it doesn't register any keystroke. I use these keys a lot for Cinema4d and After Effects, I know I can remap them inside the applications but I´d like to have them working OK. Any ideas?

Wow! this is awesome news! I know it says Thunderbolt 3 dock, but still this takes me back to my original question. Wouldn't this be like connecting a Thunderbolt display through a Thunderbolt 2 dock? I have an Elgato Thunderbolt 2 dock. I´d love to have my Thunderbolt display working. It´s been standing on my desk for 2 months now waiting to be sold...
