Didn't solve my problem. I suspected my installation. How can I inspect this process?
Some questions:
  • Did you install macOS from scratch or did you migrate a previous system?
  • Did you use "Migration Assistant" to move any files from a previous system to the new system?
  • Which version of macOS are you running?
  • Did you follow the build guide in Post 1? Or did you use some other guide?
  • What is the make/model of your WiFi/BT card?

@xtreem.p

The AsRock board you suggested works with the Apollo Twin MK2! Thank you for the recommendation!

I didn't need SSDT or TB kexts.

I updated OC to latest and all kexts. Does fan control work for you with AMD power gadget with the Phantom Gaming 5? The RPM shows up, just can't change values. Boost works.

After the system crashes and restarts, are you able to see the crash log?

Big Question: Did you make a full bootable backup before installing 11.4?
Hi CasySJ

Thanks again for you time.

The solution for me was to switch back to the FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Intel_I225-V.kext because the binary patch was the problem.

I had a full bootable 11.3.1 backup created with CCC, which I installed and then updated to 11.4 with succes.

Couple of suggestions:
  • If your monitor has an option to switch between DP 1.1 and DP 1.2, set it to DP 1.1 (yes 1.1).
  • With DP-to-DP cable, try enabling CSM Support in BIOS.
@CaseySJ yes I can select DP 1.1 but the monitor will limit 4k to 30Hz so same as HDMI. I'll try CSM option and let you guys know. Thanks.

Hi,

Lately I've been experiencing an increased POST time (from the moment I switch on the computer, until the Gigabyte logo is displayed).

At the beginning it used to take 1-2 seconds. Currently it takes 5-6 seconds.

Hardware changes were adding the Fenvi card and two additional internal SSD for additional storage and backup. I've been using same BIOS version from the beginning (F20).

I tried by flashing same BIOS version and configuring once more.

I don't shutdown or restart the computer often, but it's annoying nonetheless :)

Anyone experiencing similar issue?

Thanks

Hi all,

Has anybody noticed in the BIOS there is an "AMD driver utility" or something similar but when you select this option it switches to a page displaying one option but you can't do anything? what is the purpose of this AMD option apart from being useless?

Hello @emistral,

Although I still haven't taken my 6800 XT out of the box -- hence no direct or first-hand experience with 6000-series GPU -- here are some questions and suggestions:
  • Are you saying that with a DisplayPort connection, even the Gigabyte BIOS and Splash Screen do not appear?
  • And OpenCore Picker also does not appear?
  • I have discovered that the Z490 Vision D gets very confused when we switch GPUs. Please try reinstalling the BIOS and then configuring its parameters once again.
    • Note: CMOS Reset alone is not enough.
    • Best thing is to fully reinstall the BIOS with the RX 6800 XT in Slot 1 and no other AMD GPU installed.
Then let us know whether or not DisplayPort connection works in BIOS and OpenCore. If it does, then check if you get 4K 60Hz as long as your monitor supports it.
@CaseySJ Forgot to answer your suggestions. so yes I flashed a new BIOS (from F5d to F20) and reset all the settings. I had only the 6800XT installed when flashing the BIOS. Still the same issue (no video signal from DP until macOS is loaded). I tried also switching to DP 1.1 as suggested in one of your more recent posts on the monitor and I could see a slight change in the sense that even though I could not see the logo and OC picker I could see the Apple logo and the progressing bar right when it starts loading macOS. It looked like as if for whatever reason nothing is displayed until after the OC picker starts booting macOS. If the monitor is on DP 1.2, I don't get to see the apple logo and progressing bar. I just get a black screen until macOS is loaded. That is really annoying because I don't really want to downgraded to HDMI 30Hz just for the sake of accessing the BIOS or booting Windows :(

Hello @BurtRichalds,

Some questions/comments:
  • Does the grey screen occur when system has been idle for a few minutes and is preparing to sleep?
  • Or does it occur even when you are actively using the system?
  • Has this problem always been present, or did it begin recently?
  • We generally discourage the use of WD SN750 NVMe SSDs due to some user-reported issues, but if the problem started recently after many months of smooth sailing, then we can rule out the SN 750.
Suggestions:
  • Try disabling NVMeFix.kext from OpenCore config.plist
  • Check memory. There's a free version of MemTest86 here. There are other alternatives that can be found by googling.
The grey screen appears while using the computer, I haven’t fully setup the USB MAP/having issues with a couple External drives so I don’t have the computer enter sleep or even screen saver mode.

I will try the disabling the Kext, as I’ve chatted in another forum and some people also think it might be the NVME drive causing issues. I got the WD because I couldn’t get a Samsung at the time and people where saying it really didn’t matter. But will look into maybe correcting that as well.

Did you install macOS from scratch or did you migrate a previous system?
I have a clean install and a migration from a TM on top of that.

Did you use "Migration Assistant" to move any files from a previous system to the new system?
Yes.

Which version of macOS are you running?
10.15.7

Did you follow the build guide in Post 1? Or did you use some other guide?
Just this post. End to end. I just download the EFI folder from the post and apply it.

What is the make/model of your WiFi/BT card?
The onboard one. Intel. I didn't find any converter for my BCM94360NG to apply.

When we import an old system using Migration Assistant, we risk introducing reliability problems -- particularly if the old system has been in use for several years and hence it has accumulated a fair bit of 'baggage'.

Recommendation:
  • Perform a fresh installation of Catalina.
  • Do not use Migration Assistant.
  • Follow the build procedure in Post 1.
  • If you wish to use Intel WiFi/BT module, refer to the Intel Wireless mini-guide. The EFI in that guide is pre-configured for using the on-board Intel WiFi/BT module.
  • When installation is completed, log in to iCloud, but do not use Migration Assistant and do not install 'heavy-weight' third-party apps.
  • Instead, test sleep/wake. If everything works, make a full bootable backup (see Step 13 in Post 1). This will be your "restore point" if things fail in the future.
  • Now install your apps manually one or two at a time and keep testing sleep/wake. You will need to enter license codes again.
  • You can also copy all your documents and media manually from the old system without using Migration Assistant. If the old files/folders are on a hard drive, connect that drive to the new system and use Finder to copy documents and media files to the new system.
  • Test sleep/wake again.
