Well the upgrade to Monterey went smooth. I did loose the 2.5GbE port but at least it was partially expected. Wireless is working good though.

My main two issues are:
Audio: Looks like I've lost onboard audio-out.
Safari: Completely jacked-up and won't even open! It does appear in tasks, consuming 80+% CPU and I have to Force Quit. I've discovered I can open it in SafeMode and it acts normal. However, no success trying to get back all my recent window/sessions.

After upgrading to 12.0.1, I ALSO lost audio.
To recover audio, please try the following one by one and stop as soon as audio is recovered:
  • Reboot. At OpenCore boot picker, press space bar to reveal extra options. The rightmost one will be “Reset NVRAM”. Select that. The system will reboot. At the OpenCore boot picker press and hold CTRL key and click the macOS SSD. This will boot the selected disk and set it as default boot disk.
  • If audio does not come back, perform CMOS Reset by following procedure in motherboard manual. Then configure all BIOS parameters again, starting with Load Optimized Defaults. In macOS, open “System Information —> Audio” and post a screenshot.
Regarding Safari, try launching it from Terminal:
Bash:
cd /Applications
./Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari &
What do you see on the command line?

Yes the in-place upgrade should work. The procedure you listed is correct. We should be able to launch “Install macOS Monterey” from Applications folder.

During installation we can press CMD-L to show a log window. On the top right of the log window itself is a pop-up menu where we should select “Show all logs”.

When the install fails please post the last few lines of the log. The entire log can also be saved from the File menu.

There is a (horrible) workaround procedure but let’s see if we can avoid that by examining the log first.
Thanks @CaseySJ

I discovered some interesting stuff:

1. I'm still not able to upgrade to Monterey, but I'm able to boot into Monterey Recovery after the upgrade failed.
2. When I open a Terminal in Recovery and enter `kmutil trigger-panic-medic` the system boots into Monterey next time. Everything seems to work but of course the kernel extensions are not loaded. Without doing anything (so not approving any extensions) rebooting the system leads to a crash again (see attached screenshot).

So in summary: Monterey boots when I do a `kmutil trigger-panic-medic` in Recovery before. Any idea how I could fix this? Thanks a lot!

Changing the device layout id fixed my audio issue, maybe give this a try. EDIT you should choose to use EITHER alcid=11 boot arg or device properties for sound, not both. I had alcid=11 as a boot arg while using this device id, so the boot arg was overriding anything I put in device properties for audio.

First I need to ask at which step of the upgrade process is this problem occurring?
  • After double-clicking “Install macOS Monterey”, does it finish the preparation work and invoke the first reboot? Or does it get stuck before saying “System will reboot in 60 seconds”?
  • If it finishes the prep stage and begins the reboot, then the second stage begins. Does the second stage fail to start?


Seems there might be a kext conflict. You can boot Monterey in safe mode, which disables third party kexts.

Let’s do this:
  • Boot into Recovery partition
  • Open Terminal
  • List the contents of /Volumes/YourSSD/Library/Extensions (replace YourSSD with actual name of your SSD)
  • Also compress and post your OpenCore EFI folder, but remove serial numbers from “PlatformInfo —> DataHub” before compressing.

If it helps at all, I had all sorts of weirdness when I tried upgrading to Monterey. But a clean install was fine. So I ended up doing a CCC backup to external disk, then a clean install of Monterey and then used Migration Assistant to get everything back from the backup. More faff, but everything works...

Hey @CaseySJ

I was looking on the Fixing Audio with AppleALC dortania webpage, and noticed that it states that the boot arg alcid=xxx takes top priority and will ignore all other entries like in DeviceProperties. If thats the case, is it incorrect to define a device property for AppleALC while using the boot arg alcid=11?

I have both alcid=11 and a device property with layout id number 28 on my config, which luckily works fine(I use the audio out jack for speakers). Just curious!

Thanks @CaseySJ - it finishes the first state, reboots several times and then crashes. So its definitaly the second stage. As mentioned I'm even able to boot into Monterey after doing the kmutil-thing in recovery mode.

How to boot into safe mode?


These are the extensions:


Bash:
❯ ll /Library/Extensions
Permissions Size User Date Modified Name
drwxr-xr-x@    - root 10 Oct 14:41  AuthenticationSupport.plugin
drwxr-xr-x@    - root 10 Oct 14:41  AuthenticationSupportEnabler.plugin
drwxr-xr-x@    - root 14 Jan  2020  EnergyDriver.kext
drwxr-xr-x@    - root 21 Mar 14:56  HighPointNVMe.kext
drwxr-xr-x@    - root 26 Aug  2020  intelhaxm.kext
drwxr-xr-x@    - root 14 Nov 10:31  RMEFirefaceUSB.kext
drwxr-xr-x     - root  1 Jan  2020  SoftRAID.kext

I attached my EFI-Folder. Thanks again!

Legend! This worked perfectly for me first time - Thanks Haurb900!!!

Now, if only I knew enough about this stuff to mess around with the built-in 2.5GbE port config! But I know there are much smarter people than me on the job :). Back to undoing the Safari v15 mess.....sigh.
