Hi folks, hoping to get some troubleshooting help. I'm getting the graphics-go-to-black-screen issue after what looks like a successful boot. This is after a Sonoma update.
I had a working OC 095 running Ventura on two NVMEs. It came from NATA's 088 updated using my best effort to 095.
I booted the backup drive, and updated to Sonoma (it gave me weird errors through System Settings -> update, but I downloaded the full package and it was fine). When I came back, I think it was booted up but at black screen. I wasn't sure what had happened, so I booted 095 to my primary drive, and installed Sonoma to the backup drive. When I came back, it was booted apparently cleanly to Sonoma, but IIRC wifi wasn't working (I have a wireless PCI card that allegedly is essentially the same as Apple hardware and is natively detected, "Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (18.104.22.168 AirPortDriverBrcmNIC-1766)" in system report), and drives other than the boot drive were not available, almost like it was in some sort of safe mode. Sound, ethernet, other stuff seemed ok.
But when I rebooted it black screened after boot.
I tried adding -v but it doesn't hang. It seems to boot up and goes to black screen. I should note it's a dual monitor setup.
I tried a 096 config I found on this thread, and it actually boots up to a logon screen! but after entering password, the screen went garbled, and then it black screened, didn't get to desktop.
The 096 config won't boot the Ventura drive, it hangs almost immediately.
I've attached the 095 config and the 096 config. Happy to provide any further details.
Thanks very much.
I had a similar problem as you. I have an RX6600 graphics card, but it showed a black screen after booting. I successfully pre-installed the system on a HDD with no black screen. So, I switched to my original NVMe SSD. However, the screen went black. Everything else seemed fine, except for the screen. The only difference between the HDD and the NVMe was the type of storage device. So, I changed the PCIe speed of the NVMe from Gen4 to Gen3. Then the screen came back. I'm using WD Black SN850X supporting Gen4.
After testing it multiple times, I changed the NVMe speed back to Gen4. Now it works on Gen4. It is strange. Does the computer learn? Maybe there are some adaptive features in the BIOS that caused the issue.
I'm using the boot-args "keepsyms=1 debug=0x100 alcid=66 -wegnoigpu agdpmod=pikera".
