So I just found out something interesting. The razer core x works on the z490 vision d without flashing the thunderbolt firmware, but only if a gpu inside of it is booted as the initial display output, and the thunderbolt hotplug ssdt is disabled. But thunderbolt hotplug is broken.

If the hotplug ssdt is not disabled, then what happens on the unflashed firmware is when the hotplug ssdt is loaded and macOS initializes the thunderbolt controller, display output on the egpu immediately ceases, but macOS continues to load, and will output video only on an internal gpu, such as the igpu. Also, pcie cards (other than gpus) can be hot plugged using the razer core x, such as an aquantia 10G lan card.

There’s no real reason to do any of the above if you have available pcie slots on your motherboard, given how big and goofy (aka built like a tank) the razer core x is, but cool nonetheless.

So it seems like the best bet is as Casey has advised, flash the controller for the best compatibility.

My monitor has DP 1.2 and sometimes the black screen appears when my hackintosh is booting up. When that happens I have to shut down my monitor and turn it back on. That will solve the issue. Also can you get HDMI audio or DP audio out under the sound setting? My build is i9-10850K + Z490 Vision D.
I see the option, yes. but haven't tried it.

" You must use Migration Assistant to transfer data from this backup. Reinstall macOS if necessary and then use Migration Assistant to transfer data from your backup "

I get this message when trying to restore a time machine backup of Big Sur.

Is Time Machine broken in Big Sur or its on my system only? Any suggestions?

Spent a little bit of time today.

...speaking of my Hackintosh configured as iMac20,2 and not reporting all of the sensors in iStat Menus (neither in HWMonitorSMC2 2.6.1), you said:

This is odd. On my Z490 Vision D I am seeing all information.

It seems it may be related to the fact I am on iMac20,2 as per this post, which I found when reading deeply your guide. @starchyfind had issues as well with iStat Menus not showing all of the sensors. HWMonitorSMC 2.6.1 also doesn't show all of the values.
However, I logged in my iCloud account as iMac 20,2, I guess if I wanted to change to iMac19,1 I should change serial number as well.

BIOS F20d should not be used because it may exhibit the same USB-C problems that we've seen on all other latest BIOS updates from Gigabyte. So please flash F8c.

Unfortunately, it didn't work. I flashed F8c for my Vision G, loaded default values and reconfigured everything. Still have issues when putting Hack to sleep while a Type-C device is connected.
To rule out any interference of the GC-Titan Ridge 2.0 (& 5k monitor) I disconnected completely the card but the system still exhibited sleep issues. Changed some values here and there in the BIOS but it'd didn't help. As a last resort, I tried enabling SSDT-GPRW.aml thinking that Disable wake from USB/Bluetooth; wake only with power button could help, but it seems it had no effect at all.
Do you have any advice other than 1) connect it to an USB-A port and 2) do not put computer to sleep?

Thanks.

One can try Jettison from St. Clair software. There's a free trial period. It will safely eject all USB drives prior to sleep and will attempt to reconnect them after wake.

I am curious to understand if it happen to me only; can it be related to BIOS settings or Platform?
I am asking because you were 'confident' when you advised me to downgrade BIOS to F8c but it still didn't work. So I am evaluating if it's worth to make big changes.

Your solution could help, but often I have SSDs connected to a VM and they won't eject; need to double check, but I think the sleep issue occurs also when devices are connected to VMs.

If you say it's worth trying, I might try with a different platform and see what happens.
In such event, is it advisable to use a different serial number? [and, to keep the old one, if I simply backup the EFI folder I guess I can use it if I want to revert to the current config?]

I just connected a USB 3.1 Gen 1 USB flash disk to my Z490 Vision D via the front panel USB-C port. Sleep works normally.

Please try some other USB-C devices. Maybe the problem only occurs with the specific device that you have.

Hi, all! So if I update the BIOS, I can put a 11900K in this build or does the EFI need work? Microcenter has an open box one so I was going to waste some time maybe and try it out.

For those of you trying the OpenIntelWireless drivers, the stable version has been updated to 1.3.0. A new alpha, 2.0.0, has also been release adding support for 11ac and 11ax.

It is really great to see alpha support for both 802.11ac (WiFi 5) and 802.11ax (WiFi 6). Question:
  • When OpenCore 0.6.9 is released in about 2 weeks, which of the following should be added to the OpenIntelWireless EFI?
    • 1.3.0-stable (no WiFi 5 or WiFi 6)
    • 2.0.0-alpha
  • Note that 1.3.0-alpha is in the most recent EFI.
  • Unless I hear otherwise, I'll switch to 2.0.0-alpha.
