I'm now dual booting Monterey and Windows 11. The only issues I'm plagued with are SLOW Mac boot (Samsung Evo NVME), and no Mac Bluetooth with the Laird BT-851. Not bad for the bleeding edge. I saw a note about needing to use 100mhz base clock for TB audio, but so far I seem to have no issues running at 95mhz. I just have a Blackmagic TB3 vid capture and a Motu USB-C audio device connected.
Does OpenCore allow you to boot Windows 11? (Even with modified SSDT-DMAR.)

so it is not recommended to upgrade to Monterey at this time?
It is okay to upgrade, but we need to decide whether or not these issues are deal breakers:
  • Intel I-225v Ethernet port does not work for 99% of us. The other Ethernet port is okay.
  • Samsung NVMe SSDs can experience long boot times (trim feature not compatible with macOS).

So I have Vision G and ONLY I225V , I tried every mentioned solutions, boot args etc, with no luck! So My Ethernet won't work in any way? Is it a Gigabyte board problem?

It’s a Monterey problem because this port worked properly in Big Sur. Fortunately we can use a USB-C dock or Thunderbolt dock that has an Ethernet port.

Thank you so much! I have one for my laptop and didn't think about it! I updated to Monterey and was lost without internet!

Did you try the solution proposed by Ohchan here? #171

Hello @Justcurious1,

One quick suggestion is to disable SecureBootModel from Misc —> Security. If that does not help, we’ll take a deeper look.
Just checked and it was disabled by default. Next suggestion?

** Configuring OpenCore config.plist **
OpenCore 0.7.5

  1. Download OpenCore 0.7.5 EFI folder.
  2. Rename the top level folder to simply EFI
  3. Now open the EFI/OC folder. Inside you'll find two .plist files.
    1. If you have an AMD GPU, rename the file config-AMD-GPU.plist to just config.plist.
    2. If you don't have an AMD GPU, rename the file config-Intel-iGPU.plist to just config.plist.
  4. Download latest version of OpenCore Configurator by clicking here. Current version is 2.52.0.1.
  5. Launch OpenCore Configurator. MacOS will throw a warning because this was downloaded from the Internet. Just go to System Preferences --> Security & Privacy --> General tab, and click Allow from the bottom right.
  6. Look at the title bar of OpenCore Configurator. Does it say OpenCore 0.7.5 Development (or Release) Configuration? If not, follow these screenshots:

    Screen Shot 2021-11-01 at 11.21.01 AM.png
  7. Now open config.plist from step 4 using OpenCore Configurator. Take a moment to flip through each of the sections on the left side. Get to know briefly what's there. This will become the central focus of your Hackintosh life!!
  8. Run Hackintool (it can downloaded from here by clicking Hackintool.zip).
  9. Launch Hackintool and keep it running.
  10. Now go back to OpenCore Configurator and select PlatformInfo --> DataHub
  11. Copy and paste the items below from Hackintool to OpenCore Configurator:

  12. Be very careful -- double-check everything.
  13. Save the file (CMD-S).
Now you're ready to test the new OpenCore configuration:
  1. Use a USB flash disk that has EFI partition. Or find a blank USB disk and format it in Disk Utility:
    • Name: Anything
    • Format: FAT32 (any option is okay)
    • Scheme: GUID Partition Map
  2. Mount EFI partition of USB flash disk.
  3. Copy the entire new EFI folder to the root level of the EFI partition on USB flash disk.
Now boot the system from USB flash disk:
  • Reboot
  • When Gigabyte Splash screen appears, press F12 to open BIOS Boot Menu
  • Select the USB flash disk
  • You should see the new OpenCore Canopy (graphical boot picker)
  • Select your macOS disk
  • Does macOS boot up?
    • If so, use macOS for a little while to make sure everything is okay
    • Check your WiFi, Bluetooth, Audio, Ethernet ports, etc.
    • Check Sleep/Wake behavior
