I'm still using the same USB fixes on all my builds with no issues. However, I also don't have any internal hubs...
I guess my Bluetooth problems also have to do with the error message that causes the long boot time.

Is there a way to reinstall big sur without affecting the user folder? I just did a fresh install and don’t want to install all the Programms etc again.

You can just re-install macOS on top of your existing installation. Your apps will all still be there.

Hi @pastrychef . I'm wondering if it's reasonable or correct to use the your posted OC 070 EFI (https://www.tonymacx86.com/attachments/efi-opencore-0-7-0-z370g-zip.521191/) with my Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 -my build sig #2 that uses @jb007 's UIAC USB InjectAll patch. Edit: Same iMP 1,1 definition. I don't mind swapping out USBInjectAll for USBPorts.

You will need to do a few things...
  1. Add your SSDT to the config.plist.
  2. Delete everything in config.plist > DeviceProperteies > Add.
  3. Add USBInjectAll to config.plist > Kernel > Add.
  4. Delete my USBPorts.kext in config.plist > Kernel > Add.

Everything should work after the above changes.

You can skip steps 1, 3, and 4 if you replace my USBPorts.kext with your own.

My build is still running strong, no issues. I purchased 2 of the z370-g wifi-boards at the same time. Recently sold my remaining one. Question from buyer that I have no idea how to answer hoping that you may be able to help:
do you remember the BIOS version for this board when you first got it? I need to know if I should get an 8th gen cpu, in order to upgrade the bios to use my 9th gen cpu.
I have no idea what bios is on the board- is there a way around?

I don't remember the original BIOS version but you definitely need to update from the original BIOS to a later version if you want to use a 9th gen CPU.

You can probably check the version by going in to BIOS to look around.

Upgrading BIOS has always been smooth and easy for me on this motherboard.

Is there a way to do it without first buying and installing an 8th gen- can we boot the board without the cpu

I don't know. I'll have to wait for Windows 11 to be officially released to try...
