Hey Casey,

I followed your guide for installing OpenIntelWireless drivers and I'm running into some trouble. I created the USB Flash Disk with the new EFI folder and config.plist. When I boot from that flash drive I get the following errors shown in the image below. I don't have any changes to my OpenCore configuration and I just did a fresh install of the latest OpenCore and Big Sur.

If you used OpenCore Configurator, what version number was shown in the title bar? Here's an example:

If you open the EFI folder in Finder, what are the modification dates for BOOTx64.efi and OpenCore.efi?

Incidentally, when we use OpenCore Configurator (or even a text editor like BBEdit) we should not mount more than one EFI partition at a time. There's a bug in either macOS or in many third party apps that results in files getting mixed up between two or more EFI partitions.

Rule of Thumb: Only mount one EFI partition at a time when editing config.plist

April 5th. I just saw you posted an update for OC on October 4th. Let me go through that update and see if it works. Apologies.
No worries. April 5th is OpenCore 0.6.9 I believe. It's necessary to replace the entire EFI folder with the new one downloaded from the mini-guide.

Using the provided config.plist and will monitor Big Sur install for freezes

Also tried to do a fresh install of Catalina with provided config.plist but it fails like before.

The CX550m was purchased in 2017. I have an RM850x on the way that will replace that.

No other OS's are installed on this machine.

The drives you listed earlier are all external drives?
  • 2 Western Digital Passport 2 TB drives, 1 Elements 2 TB drive, 1 Elements 5 TB drive (externally powered), 1 Elements 8 TB drive (externally powered), 1 Seagate One Touch 5 TB drive
What are the makes/models of all NVMe SSDs in the system?

Running Linux from a USB flash disk (without installing it on a SSD) might be a good idea. If Linux also crashes then it suggests a hardware or electrical problem. But if Linux is stable, then the fault is probably in macOS.

How to Run Linux:
  • Download a Linux distro such as Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Debian, Manjaro, etc. with a graphical Desktop.
  • Burn the ISO to a USB flash drive with Balena Etcher.
  • Reboot computer and press F12 at Gigabyte splash screen. Select USB flash disk.
  • When the Linux menu appears, one of the options should be to run Linux “live” without installing it. Select that option.
  • Use Linux (including Firefox browser) for some time to see if the computer crashes or remains stable.
