Ok guys I’m stuck. I’ve been at this for weeks and I had Sierra on it for a hour and now when I reinstall Sierra and El Capitan I get this error.

Try the other ports ?
On the money again, thanks trs96, tried DisplayPort cable instead and pink screen was gone.

I'm now enjoying games via Windows with rx 570 8gb itx powered from sata power adaptor cable. Appears to run very well to me. I contemplating not upgrading the psu, would I much of a boost in performance if I did?

I don't think so. The downside of using a sata power adapter for the extra power is that it runs through, comes from the motherboard itself instead of the PSU. I think these boards are built well enough that they can handle it as long as you don't push your graphics card too much in gaming or editing. For general use it's fine.

I've been directing people to Sniki's guides for Mojave and Catalina as they cover all this. Since you are on Sierra, simply install those two kexts to /Library/Extensions with Kextbeast app and then reboot and try the 560.


Download the release versions and take the kext only out of the folder, put them on your desktop.. Install with Kextbeast.
It worked beautifully, thank you so much, pretty much have my ideal system running at the moment!

The only thing left is the audio, the. headphone out doesn't work, should I try the AppleALC.kext from Sniki's guide?

But first again, THANK YOU for your help and have a very nice day!

Yes, I would try that but you'd also need to use an entry in Devices/Properties. See the config.plist that Sniki provides.

Where did you download the BIOS from ? Also post some screenshots of what you do see as options.

My headphone audio still doesn't work after the using Kextbeast for the AppleALC.kext and putting Sniki's config.plist in place on the EFI partition of my boot disk. Am I forgetting something?

Likely. Why don't you upload your zipped up Clover folder for review.
(SOLVED) I have it working after installing VodooHDA 2.9.0. Thank you for wanting to look at my Clover folder anyway!
