So it seems system with AMD gpu need Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext ver. 1.3.4 for Catalina 10.15.1 to boot.

AMD gpu is not so natively supported by OSX after all.


I don't know about other people but I can boot with out Lilu or WhateverGreen on my Z370 and Z390 systems in Mojave and Catalina, including 10.15.1.

I have Vega 56 and Radeon VII in those systems.

So where should the kexts be installed? In /Library/Extensions or in the Clover kexts folder?
Thanks!
Len

those all work in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/other folder. It keeps your macOS install vanilla.

This is not the case for me.
My RX 570 no longer needs WEG.
Booted with -disablegfxfirmware and Inject ATI with renames change GFX0 to IGPU and change PEGP to GFX0.
Do you think that method works for me? I have an RX 470 and a Pentium G3250. What difference does it use to use your method or the method with Watevergreen?

Installed WEG 1.3.4 and did the update. Ran just like a real mac. I bet the Apple engineers/coders have hackintoshes because these updates keeps getting easier!

On my systems, WhateverGreen helps enable all video out ports and enables HDMI/DisplayPort audio. But I can boot fine without it installed as long as my monitor is connected to the correct video out port.

People who are having problems with WhateverGreen have an outdated version installed. If they update, there's no problem or, at least some of them, can just remove WhateverGreen.

My system was Lilu free until 10.15.1. I don't like adding more kexts or drivers to my system unless it's absolutely necessary.

Hi all! Has anyone tried Catalina 10.15.1 on laptops with iGPU? Some users say the update can cause problems for laptops due to "heavy changes" in the Framebuffer.
