Alas that's what we feared. Some questions:
  • Is AppleVTD enabled?
  • Is Thunderbolt hot plug affected by AppleVTD being either enabled or disabled?
  • If you have Windows and/or Linux installed, does Thunderbolt hot plug work in those operating systems?
1. If I recall, I just using your OC 0.7.3 by default, the only thing I changed was the boot section like I add "-v". But, after I checked, it seems to be enabled according to your post about AppleVTD. So the answer is enable by default
2. I dunno, I could try by now if you want.
3. I think it doesn't work since I reflashed the Thunderbolt chip, so I'm sure it doesn't work on Windows, too.

Please try attached, as follows:
  • Backup the current EFI folder (or rename it to EFI-Backup)
  • Download attached file and rename top folder to simply EFI
  • Copy serial numbers back into config.plist --> PlatformInfo --> Generic/DataHub section
  • Copy entire EFI folder to EFI partition
  • Reboot
Success!

I now have an 8 Year old Gigabyte System Running Big Sur OpenCore on a Radeon RX570 dual booting with Windows 10 Pro on an Nvidia 1070Ti.

Thanks Casey so much for your assistance once again.

One more question before I start with my new install. @CaseySJ
Is it advised to install Catalina first and then update to Big Sur or can I install Big Sur directly as well?

thanks again!

We can install Big Sur right from the start!

@CaseySJ Hi there, in the early days of hackintosh and Clover, we had to "repair" the permissions from time to time (usually before or after a SW update). This could also cause issues (not have the permission repaired). is it still the case? I barely see any post suggesting to repair the permission to fix such and such problem whereas in the past it used to be pretty common. This is just for my own curiosity. I have not repaired any permissions in a while.

Permissions had to be repaired because of modifying /Library/ or /System/Library/. Unless you still add or modify anything inside, I don’t see the reason to repair.

Hello all!

I made my first Hackintosh with a Z490 Vision D in November last year and until now it is working very well. Now, I wanted to make another one with the same specs with found out that the Z490 Vision D is not widely available anymore or if it is, it is very expensive. Instead, there's the Z590 Vision D.

My question is, can I use this motherboard instead but with the rest of the components the same, i.e., with i5-10400 CPU, RX 580, etc.?

Thanks in advance!

You could also Wait for Z690 it’s coming soon. I have the Z590 Vision D, and it works. But it is not the best implementation by Gigabyte. And I feel their quality assurance has taken a turn for the worse at least during the pandemic.

The board works but not as well as the Z490 Vision (Thundebolt hot plug is broken in macOS). You have to put the system to s3 sleep first and wake it up in order for hot plug to work in macOS. Thunderbolt Hot plug works fine in win/Linux however.

And if I remember correctly you won’t have use of the comet lake iGPU via Z590 if you needed to use it.

I don’t want other people to buy this board and get frustrated from its quirks. I actually have to run an unreleased BIOS for better stability. I would actually recommend the Z590 MSI Ace or the Z590 Asus HERO. Up to you.

Thank you very much, @dehjomz ! I don't have any preference when it comes to the brand, and it's because I don't have much knowledge to know which brand is better. So your reply is very helpful.

Unfortunately, the MSI Ace and Asus HERO are almost double the price of the Z590 Vision D. Probably because they are much better.

Can you recommend another board that is not too expensive? I'm planning to use an i5 or i7 10th gen CPU. Thunderbolt would be nice, but not necessary, because I'll be using a 10G network card instead of using thunderbolt with 10G like in my Z490 Vision D. But it should at least have USB 3.2.

Thanks again!
