Awesome -- thanks for confirming that we can still use Advanced Options to remap the home folder.Ever since APFS was developed, I've just been using a separate APFS volume for my User Directory... this has saved me countless times when I needed to reinstall macOS. Whenever I need to reinstall, I can format the installation volume just fine, no data loss (except perhaps for the apps in the /Applications folder, but one could theoretically make that it's own Volume as well).
Then when I reinstall macOS, and I create a user, I just go to System Preference->Users and Groups->Advanced Options, and point the newly created user's home directory to my existing directory on the safe APFS volume.
Restart and boom, I pick up exactly where I left off, sometimes I may have to re-login to iCloud, sometimes not.
Two suggestions:Thanks a lot ! Just tried, but still having the same issues ....
Nope, my keyboard is wired. Now I fix something and I am not sure.Because you're using OpenIntelWireless drivers, please post screenshot of OpenCore Configurator --> Kernel.
What is the make/model of your keyboard? Is it a Bluetooth keyboard?
Is the Samsung NVMe SSD still present in the system? If so, is it formatted as APFS or has it been reformatted as NTFS (Windows) or ext4 (Linux)?@CaseySJ my boot time fluctuate a lot sometimes it takes me 23 secs to boot from apple loading bar to password login page. Unfortunately, sometimes it still takes me 1 minute and 30 sec to boot(very often). I did run a verbose mode on the system like you asked yesterday and I take a picture at a major pause during the code running process. However, I have no idea what does that mean. Can you take a look and give me more suggestions to fix the issue? Thanks!
