A little up in case someone has any idea ;-)

- All above statements are correct
- OC 0.66 following your EFI and upgrade process since the beginning
- No other third part apps except Firefox. The purpose on this install is to run Photo apps on V 5.0 for a customer. My BS OS would upgrade his library and this is obviously not suitable.
  • Are you building and selling a Hackintosh to a customer?
- The KP happens really at random, initially sometimes even as early as during the the install process.
- When install is fine, the boot is always normal but then KP can happen when Photo is running and going into the "curating best photos" process
- The KP can happen even if I don't interfere with the machine, just looking at the progress of the job
- I don't have screen capture but, looking at the log, it seems that the main issues (at random) are linked to mds and mdworker.

No :)
I am upgrading a Macbook Air for him from Mountain Lion to Catalina with 2 huge Photo libraries.
The purpose is to merge the libraries on a Catalina session running on the hackintosh, as copies and post treatment run much faster than on his poor MBA with only 4Go RAM, and then transfer back the final directory on the MBA.
I can't run it on BS as the libraries would be upgraded and no longer compatible back to Catalina.

Which build guide did you follow?
This guide for Catalina, then changed SystemProductName to 19,1 and CPUID in kernel -> emulate as described in my previous post. Have tried also other layout id.

Understood.

Because Catalina is working properly on the migrated disk, have you considered doing this on that system? If you launch the Photos app with Option key held down, you will get this dialog:

If your friend's library is on a separate disk, you can click "Other Library..." to open your friend's library and make all the changes to that disk without affecting your own Photos library.

But always good to make a full backup of your system first!

Very good. Please open your config.plist in OpenCore Configurator and post screenshot of the Kernel section.

I even have back up of back up :).
No sure I have been properly understood... (I am French !)
- MBA upgraded to Catalina. 2 libraries on a external HD (his SSD is too small) 4Go RAM only.
So I want to transfer the libraries on my Hack on a Catalina session, because if I open them on a BS session they will be automatically upgrader to Photo v6 and then I cannot save them on Photo V5 to be opened back on his MBA Catalina.
To merge and process the files I use Powerphotos and it is really great.
I know how to work on different library with ALT function at opening menu.
But.... I need a Catalina session on my Hack and I suspect this ******g Samsung Nvme SSD to make troubles.
And this is what I am trying to investigate with my initial post.

Okay, I thought you still had your Catalina disk from Z370 that you could insert into Z390 -- or even leave it in Z370.

Another option is to install VMware Fusion on Z390 Big Sur. There is a 30-day free trial. Then install Catalina in a VMWare virtual machine.

Update:
VMware Fusion Player for non-commercial home use is free.

Note that I have rebuilt USBPorts to remove Intel bluetooth.

Thank you for clarifying. Alas @Higgie is not going to be happy. Unfortunately I mentioned incorrectly that someone had reported the Razer Core X to work with original firmware.
So, in a stroke of inspiration, I decided to see what would happen if I installed both cards in my PC (RX580 in Slot 2 and RX6800 in Slot 1 as normal) and booted Windows after Loading Optimized Defaults in the BIOS. I enabled XMP Profile 1 at the same time, and lo and behold - No more crash after logging in!

I've just booted up my most graphically intense game (Cyberpunk 2077) and had a quick run around and still no crash. I'm typing this now from within the same Windows session. Usually the computer would crash within 20secs-1min after logging into Windows if I have both cards installed. So there is either a setting, or a combination of settings that we use for booting MacOS that conflicts with Windows when it comes to having multiple GPUs in the case at once. I'm tempted to go through and enable each setting one by one to find the culprit, but for now I'm just happy that I won't have to open the case any more! I can just save a profile in BIOS for Windows, and one for MacOS.

Consider the Razer Core X definitely for sale! :lol:

CaseySJ:​

couple of days ago you said I discourage Samsung EVO Pro NVMe M.2 SSD, and you suggest (a) Sabrent Rocket, (b) ADATA SX 8200/8200 Pro, (c) Silicon Power because Samsung runs hot. But I see tonymac puts Samsung SSDs in the Buying Guide. Can you explain more a bit and which of this three are best. I always thought Samsung was good for Hackintosh, and. also to others, please share you experience about.

( Sabrent Rocket, (b) ADATA SX 8200/8200 Pro, (c) Silicon Power)
