Hi,
I am on OC 0.70 with Big Sur on Dell 7559 with i5-6300 HQ. My battery and sleep doesn't seem to work, I have tried the guides to patch DSDT, that method worked on Clover, and on Catalina, but never with Big Sur. Would really appreciate any help.
Thanks

That did the trick! (So far!) Thank again for your help!

Edit: After ironing some annoyances I managed to upgrade to OC 0.6.9 and I'm flawlessly running Big Sur 11.4

Thanks again hlfhi!
HI Zurdok,

I see we both have the same laptop and I see you are on Big Sur with working battery, Can you help me with your OC folder?

Thank you

Hi, a couple of questions from a first poster performing his first installation ever:
  • Did you find a way to boot Big Sur without the gray screen workaround (directly in EFI, not by using Clover in Legacy mode)? Which BIOS version are you using, and can you share your config?
  • Can you share your EFI, please? It would be a great starting point.
So far I couldn't go past the black screen after the OC boot picker...

I have not been able to boot directly into the efi without doing one of the following : using clover legacy, grey screen workaround for open core, or repeatedly pulling the battery cable on the motherboard. Not sure why this is , but there seems to be no downside to the grey screen workaround. I will soon be retiring my 7559 machine as somehow both of their 960m gpu died. Thankfully this does not affect the hackintosh, but it really neuters them in Windows.

Hi,

i actually followed the guide on dortina, its pretty straightforward and doesn’t take long to build EFI. Let me know if you come across any issues. I might be able to help.

If anyone needs OC 0.7.1 EFI with updated kexts, you can use this. Just change the serial number and stuff in config.plist.

P.S I have i7 4k touch model.

What helped me boot from OC directly without the grey screen work around was using the BIOS settings recommended in the first post.
Reset your BIOS settings and try using the recommended ones.
Also, what is your BIOS version?
