Thanks for the new OpenCore 0.6 Zip file, used that one to update my older version. Works very well! :)

The change is FakeSMC to VirtualSMC. FakeSMC provides more sensors.

I don't know what it is about VirtualSMC that's causing Davinci Resolve to crash...

Please try replacing VirtualSMC with FakeSMC.
Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/.
Delete SMCProcessor.kext, SMCSuperIO.kext, and VirtualSMC.kext.
In the same folder, install the attached kexts.

Thanks! Is using VirtualSMC better than Fake SMC?

P.S. Davinci Resolve needs to be "activated" more complex way. Don't know how it depend on Clover config.

it's not "better", just different. Use whichever one is more compatible.

Make sure everything is stable before attempting to overclock. If the system is unstable and you overclock, you won't know if the problem is the overclock or with your hackintosh configuration when you experience problems.

Leave it disabled for now.

Thanks Pastry My z-370 is more stable with the changes you had me do. I had projects to edit and finish but eventually will want to OC the processor and memory.

I received a "new" system yesterday: Asus z270 p prime and I7 7700k. I'll put and Rx 580 pulse in it for the install but I have ordered an rx 5700 xt, so I'd like ton install Catalina on that one.


Which of your efi folders, sys def and Clover build to create the install thumb drive would you reccommend ?

The Clover EFI from post #1 should work for Z270 with little to no changes. Just choose an appropriate system definition for Z270.

upon install, I get : an error occurred validating the installer data..download Is either damaged or incomplete...would that have anything to do with what you mentioned?

It looks unrelated. Try redoing your USB installer.

Which of these drivers are mandatory for the USB installer, because I tried with all of these I got a blank screen...when I only used APFSDriverloader, HFSplus and virtual SMC I got to the clover boot loader menu at least....
