Hello @daddaa,

One or both of your external drives is formatted as ExFAT, and the kernel panic is most likely occurring when reading or writing to those drives.

Questions:
  • How are these external drives connected?
    • Are they mounted in an external USB enclosure and connected via USB cable?
    • Are they mounted inside a multi-bay drive array?
    • If the two drives are connected to two different USB ports, which ports are they connected to?
    • Or are they connected to a USB hub?
    • Are the two drives self-powered or powered through the USB cable itself?
    • Are the two drives regular (mechanical) hard drives or SSDs?
  • If you copy the Adobe After Effects file(s) to an internal SSD temporarily (and disconnecting both of the external drives), can you perform all the functions on them successfully without encountering a system crash?
  • Is it necessary to format your drives as ExFAT or can they be formatted as either HFS+ or APFS?
    • Do not reformat the drives at this time.
Hi @CaseySJ,
thanks for your quick reply!

Normally, I also would suspect the drive. Maybe the example with the external drive was a bit misleading, as the freezing also occours without any external drive and opening the After Effects project sitting on the internal nvme SSD (which btw is a Samsung 970 Evo plus 500gb). -> So this answers your second bullet point :)

Here you find the panic report from the crash without any external drives:

Next steps to try:
- I ordered a WD SN750 drive and will clone macOS to that to rule out the Samsung SSD
- Do a Memtest to rule out issues with the RAM (Crucial Ballistix 2x 16gb, 3200mhz)

This kernel panic is squarely due to Adobe After Effects. Could it be attributed to a particular plug-in? Does After Effects support plug-ins? Do you have a real Mac on which to test the same use case with the same file(s)?

Ouch, the WD SN750 is on our list of problematic drives. Recommended brands are:
  • Sabrent Rocket NVMe
  • Silicon Power NVMe
  • ADATA NVMe
  • Many others also qualify, but I have personal experience with the above three
- Do a Memtest to rule out issues with the RAM (Crucial Ballistix 2x 16gb, 3200mhz)
If the kernel panic only occurs while using Adobe After Effects, then memory might not be the issue. However, this is still a good thing to do.

I'm using a template with some imported presets. That shouldn't be anything special I hope. And yes, I have a real Mac. On my Macbook Pro the project works without any issue from an external drive (except the Macbook is of course way slower than the Hackintosh).

It occured once without opening AE, but unfortunately didn't keep the panic report. Let's see what will turn out from the check.

Ooops :oops: Thanks for the hint! Just read about the EVO plus being problematic and didn't investigate any further in panic of getting an alternative. Then probably I'll use the WD for the Windows side of the machine.

@CaseySJ Quick question on sleep/wake; up to 0.6.1 I had to add the GPRW SSDT and the GPRW patch in the ACPI section because my system would not go to sleep. (It would go to sleep then would wake up straight away.)

With GPRW it would go to sleep fine, and I would need to use the power button to wake the system up which was fine by me. With subsequent updates of OC, I have always kept GPRW on. Out of curiosity, after upgrading to 0.6.5, I decided to disable GPRW SSDT and the patch, and see if the system could go to sleep. The system went to sleep and stayed into sleep mode. However, the weird thing is that I could not wake it up via the BT mouse or keyboard. I have ticked the usual "wake this computer with BT devices" in the BT settings in system preferences, but it did not work. I can still wake up the system via the power button but not from any BT devices. It looks like the GPRW is still loaded despite me resetting the system and the nvram, just in case.

Also note that despite having GPRW enabled or disabled, since updating to 11.1, the system does not go into sleep on its on when it reaches the timer. It will go into sleep if I force it myself which is fine. (Note that the system was OK in 11.0.1.)

From a hardware point of view, the only thing that has changed is that I removed the SATA WD magnetic disk that was causing restart/reboot issue with a SATA SSD (no more issue).
Any suggestion on what I am missing?

Thanks to [B]CaseySJ[/B], I redid my Hackintosh Catalina from scratch using the OC for Big Sur 11.1. It worked like a charm. I previously (last July) spec'd the machine based on this thread.

I've been lurking since then, so I apologize for that. I can then answer questions if needed.
I still have some optimizations to make and check some power saving and Sidecar issues but I will deal with them later.

I am curious about your take on the - long awaited - upgrades of 2021 (32" displays with HDMI 2.1 and Thunderbolt 4).
  1. OCW is releasing a new TB4 hub later this year. On the page of the product they explain that the TB4 hub will be compatible with all MAC running BIG SUR 11.1 and all PC equipped with a TB4.
    That leads to the question of Hackintoshes running Big Sur 11.1 on a VISION D. Do you think it will work ?
  2. About the next range of AMD video cards that will support HDMI 2.1. Do you think they will be easy to integrate into our Hackintoshes just by swapping the current for the new HDMI 2.1 compatible ?
  3. For all the UAD Twin TB2 users out there. Do you feel that the latency on hackintosh is a little bigger than it is on a real Mac ?
I am curious about all those topics.
Thanks in advance for replying.

Cheers,

That's interesting. If you disabled (a) SSDT-GPRW.aml and (b) the associated ACPI patch, then system should be able to wake from USB and Bluetooth.

In System Preferences --> Bluetooth --> Advanced, is this item checked on?

Hello @Mosk,

Yes I "believe" the new OWC TB4 dock will be compatible with the TB3 ports on this system. Without actually testing and confirming, I cannot say that it "will" be compatible, but I "believe" it will.

  1. About the next range of AMD video cards that will support HDMI 2.1. Do you think they will be easy to integrate into our Hackintoshes just by swapping the current for the new HDMI 2.1 compatible ?
I also "believe" Apple and AMD are continuing to work together on GPU driver support, so I expect a future version of Big Sur to support RDNA 2 (Radeon RX 6000 series). Then it will be a simple matter of plug-and-play.
  1. For all the UAD Twin TB2 users out there. Do you feel that the latency on hackintosh is a little bigger than it is on a real Mac ?
I cannot answer this question myself, but hopefully UAD owners will respond. Some UAD owners have flashed their Thunderbolt controller and reported various improvements. Here's one such post:
