Thanks CaseySJ for the help! FYI here are the files.
This shows that:
  • en0 is 10Gbit Aquantia Ethernet
  • en2 is Intel AX201 WiFi
  • But Intel i225-V has no driver attached

Please compress and post your EFI folder, but remove serial numbers from PlatformInfo.

** OpenCore 0.6.8 EFI for Z490 Vision D **
Supports both Catalina and Big Sur
Please do not quote this post in its entirely. Use a link instead.

BREAKING NEWS (for Catalina and Big Sur only)!!
Brand new method to upgrade to OpenCore 0.6.8 (you can skip everything below)!!



If making changes to the config files, please wait for OpenCore Configurator 2.33.1.2 or newer
(or use a plist editor)


NOTE: If you are using OpenIntelWireless to drive the on-board Intel AX201 WiFi/BT module, please jump to this post instead (updated for OpenCore 0.6.8 with latest OpenIntelWireless 1.3.0-Alpha drivers).​


The formal release of OpenCore 0.6.8 has arrived, along with an update of Lilu, WhateverGreen, AppleALC, VirtualSMC, and NVMeFix.

This EFI contains the following changes:

Bootloader / Kexts:
All of the items listed below are official builds.
  • OpenCore 0.6.8
  • Lilu 1.5.2
  • WhateverGreen 1.4.9
  • AppleALC 1.5.9
  • VirtualSMC 1.2.2
  • NVMeFix 1.0.6
config.plist Changes:
  • Misc --> Security --> SecureBootModel --> Disabled (change to Default for OpenIntelWireless)
  • NVRAM --> Delete --> opencore-version (to report correct OpenCore version when macOS is booted)
How to Use:
  1. Find a USB flash disk with an EFI partition, or format the USB flash disk in Disk Utility with Scheme = GUID Partition Map and Format = MacOS Extended (Journaled).
  2. Mount EFI partition of the USB flash disk.
  3. Download the attached ZIP into the top level of the EFI partition of the USB flash disk. When the file is unzipped, there will be a folder called OC-068-VISION-D.
  4. Rename this folder to EFI, otherwise the system will not boot.
  5. Use HackinDROM to transfer PlatformInfo from existing OpenCore config.plist to new version. Please follow the guide by clicking here and select one of the following from the CopyConfig feature.
    • Z490 Vision D OC 068 AMD GPU - CaseySJ
    • Z490 Vision D OC 068 Intel IGPU - CaseySJ
After the modified config.plist has been copied to the EFI/OC folder of the USB flash disk, proceed as follows:
  1. Reboot and press F12 at the BIOS Splash Screen. When the BIOS Boot Menu (not OpenCore Picker) appears, select the USB flash disk.
  2. Warning: It is necessary to Reset NVRAM one time prior to booting macOS. This can be done by pressing spacebar at the OpenCore Picker and choosing Reset NVRAM. On multi-boot systems:
    • Select the default startup disk in System Preferences --> Startup Disk
    • Or select the startup disk in OpenCore Graphical Picker and press CTRL-Enter to set default
  3. At the OpenCore 0.6.8 Picker menu, select and boot the internal macOS disk.
  4. If everything works correctly, copy the new OpenCore EFI folder from the USB flash disk to the EFI partition of the main macOS SSD.
CAUTION:
  • If you are using a custom Thunderbolt SSDT or any other custom SSDTs or Kexts, please update your config.plist accordingly.
  • During startup or reboot, the Gigabyte splash screen may take several seconds to clear, which means the OpenCore Picker GUI will take more time to appear. If this happens, the delay could be fixed by removing AudioDxe.efi from the OpenCore config.plist.
NOTE:
  • Because some systems may not boot properly without a Fake CPU ID, the following are pre-entered:
    • OpenCore Configurator --> Kernel --> Cpuid1Data = EB060800 00000000 00000000 00000000
    • OpenCore Configurator --> Kernel --> Cpuid1Mask = FFFFFFFF 00000000 00000000 00000000
  • You may delete both of these entries and check if your system still boots.


Gigabyte Z490 Vision G (not D)

OpenCore 0.6.8 EFI folder for the Gigabyte Z490 Vision G is also attached below. This EFI has not been tested so please install this on USB flash disk as stated in instructions above. The filename is:

EFI-068-VISION-G-NOT-D.zip

@CaseySJ:
hi how are you thanks fot this post,
but is what i highlighted in GREEN in your post for Rocket lake cpu's.....?
Hello @jd6,

Please do not copy the guides in their entirety. It says so just below the title.

The items in green were there before, and apply to Comet Lake. But it may also allow Rocket Lake to work.

OpenCore itself needs to detect the type of CPU that is present in the system. This allows OpenCore to apply conditional treatments to different CPU types. Alas, this does not mean that OpenCore gives macOS native support for those CPUs. Only Apple can do that!

Hi,

I have a problem with my VRS8 (I follow the guide for the VRS8). This is an intermittent problem. Sometimes, everything work good but sometimes I can't get logic (or other software) to receive an audio input. I can hear the audio input in hardware monitoring on the VRS8, i just can't get Logic to hear it.

I found that on gearslutz :
I would guess you need to enable Microphone input in the System Preferences / Security & Privacy..

Otherwise , Do not buy a HIGHPOINT 7101A-1 for a 4X4 NVME RAID with a Mac with a T2 chip & VRS8. The PCIe setting requires for the T2 chip to be turned off, and audio will not flow to any DAW.
Hi, i have enabled microphone input. Unfortunately i DO have the Highpoint 7101A-1 though and have disabled secure boot :(.

Is there any way around this problem because i can't easily get a new RAID card at the moment and i use it for all my samples / work etc?

I just can't understand why sometimes the audio input work and sometimes don't.

Thank you.

FYI the driver by Rehabman for the Intel I255-V was installed in the EFI (along with FakePCIID), but for some strange reason could never get recognised by the OS. I'd assume this is the main problem?

I have this system:
MB: Gigabyte Z490 Vision G
CPU: i5-1500
RAM: DDR4 64 GB 3200 GHz
Graphics: Radeon RX 570 8 GB DDR5
NVMe M.2 Samsung SSD 970 EVO (1 TB) + Crucial SSD P2 - 2 TB (secondary)
WiFi+Bluethoot: MQUPIN BCM94360CD (recognized natively by Big Sur and previous)

With new OpenCore updated to 0.6.8 version on VISION G at starting boot appear this message:
IMG_6816.jpeg

And the mouse and the cursor to select the system doesn't works fine.
Please test this release, thank you.
