Ive read many reports of users who already had betas of Monterey working great. Has anyone upgraded their current stable 11.6 to Monterey along with OpenCore 0.7.4. Anything to look out for? Or is it pretty much just plug and play?

Thanks in advance!

The slow boot times can occur after Monterey has been installed, so if you experience slow boot time after installing Monterey, please run this command again.

Meanwhile, if you don't have a Samsung NVME SSD, I would say it's okay to upgrade to Monterey, but note that Intel i225-V 2.5GbE Ethernet port does not work (yet). The other Ethernet port is okay.

This is worth doing:
  • In Terminal, type:
Bash:
log show --last boot | grep "trims took"
  • Give it a few seconds to run then press CTRL-C to stop.
  • Post the output.
Here's the result from my Z490 Vision D with release version of Monterey:
Code:
kernel: (apfs) spaceman_scan_free_blocks:3153: disk3 scan took 1.913441 s, trims took 1.786507 s
kernel: (apfs) spaceman_scan_free_blocks:3153: disk2 scan took 2.299866 s, trims took 2.262432 s
Note that both operations took less than 3 seconds.https://www.tonymacx86.com/attachments/upload?type=post&context[thread_id]=298642&hash=dcc8be18eeb917ae6d4f8bd4e2959938
@CaseySJ I run the code, and here is what I have. Is that good? My current boot drive for MacOS Monterey is Western Digital SN550

Yes, only 1.024 seconds for trim. This is very good. Did this particular startup take less than 30 seconds?
Sometimes, just like before I updated to Monterey. Sometimes takes 20 seconds to boot and sometimes takes 90 seconds to boot. I don't know what caused the variation. Also, I put my boot-log in the attachment. I can't seem to find a huge time gap from the last boot. Last boot took me 55 seconds to boot. Thanks again!

OK, so I just installed 11.6.1, and my computer is no longer giving me the disk ejection warning on wake-from-sleep,
but in 11.6 and 11.6.1, my streamdeck does not wake to it's original state either, and wake-from sleep is significantly longer than in 11.5. Since I now have appleVTD disabled, I'm inclined to assume this is a fundamental OS USB behaviour change from 11.6+
Spoke too soon. The error persists.

OS Monterey 12.0.1 Install just fine as a Upgrade to 11.6 running OpenCore 0.7.4. Took about 30min and a few reboots...

Let's assume for a moment that bootable backups are no longer an option and we have (a) many third-party licensed applications, (b) many third-party licensed plug-ins, (c) lots of project files, data files, etc.

We know that:
  • macOS system files are installed in their own APFS sealed volume.
  • All of our applications, plug-ins, project files, data files, etc. are stored on the "data" volume.
We can:
  • Make full and incremental backups of the "data" volume freely.
    • Understandably, this is the 'stuff' that's most important to us.
In the event of a system crash or other major or minor disaster:
  • We can reformat the internal SSD and reinstall macOS from scratch.
  • We can then clone our backed-up "data" volume to the internal "data" volume that is located in the same volume groupas the newly installed macOS.
    • Question 1: Is this viable?
    • Question 2: If not viable, then we can clone our backed-up data volume to a new APFS volume created on the internal SSD.
  • We can then go to System Preferences --> Users & Groups --> Advanced and point our home directory to the restored data volume.
So total recovery time would be:
  • Time to install macOS from scratch
  • Time to clone backup "data" volume to new internal data volume
Does anyone see a technical glitch in this scenario?
Just the time factor, which is why some of us keep bootable backups. Time to continue working is the time it takes up plug in a drive and restart.
