Hi all

Can you please suggest a supported nic card 10GB both SPF+ or RJ45 that I could use?

Trying to do a direct connection to a 10GB port on file server (freenas) for higher transfer speeds

Thank you

I accidentally updated to 10.15.7 without updating OpenCore. I can no longer boot from hard drive, and my serials were erased. How do I fix?

Simply boot from your Bootable Backup disk that was made in Step 13 of Post #1 (specifically, connect the bootable backup disk then press F12 at the BIOS Splash Screen and select that disk from the list). After booting from that disk, use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the backup disk back to the main SSD. Also mount EFI partitions of both drives and copy EFI folder from backup disk to main disk.

Please note that if your main SSD is actually okay, but you believe that only the OpenCore EFI folder is bad, then it's only necessary to copy the EFI folder from the EFI partition of the bootable backup disk. It's not necessary in this case to clone the backup disk to the main disk.

Got it, thank you for the suggestion

Are there other options as well? As in better rated options?

Thank you
I have this exact card. It’s fine.

do note that for some reason, the kernel driver for these Aquantia pci-e cards don’t load in the Big Sur betas.

If you plan on running Big Sur, you will need a kernel patch to get them to work. Curiously, the thunderbolt3-based Aquantia cards load just fine in Big Sur without any kernel patching.

If you do end up getting an Aquantia based pcie these are the deets for the kernel patch in Big Sur:

*com.apple.driver.AppleEthernetAquantiaAqtion
* Find: 0F84C002 0000
* Replace: 660F1F44 0000

set maxkernel set to 20.9.0

SecureBootModel may need to be set to Disabled.

I don’t know. I know actual iMac Pros have the Aquantia chipset inside. Someone else may be able to help regarding whether other manufacturers 10 gbps cards are supported on Mac.
