TBH, I am not 100% sure what vanilla technically means but I see a lot of hate elsewhere towards non-vanilla methods, especially some tools available here on tony, everything works so I dont really care, was just curious.

2!? Ok, the same was happening here, no display, and it was stopping the bootloader from loading, now I am less worried about it being my fault somehow, thanks!


1Mhz difference doesn't worry me, the only problem about it is some Audio software (from Native Instruments) takes note of clock speed's, if they change the software thinks the whole system changed and all the software licenses need reauthorizing. I guess I'll need to do some research.

Thanks man, you're awesome, wish I could buy you a beer or two one day :D
I guess that when people say "vanilla", they mean (1) leaving macOS unmodified and (2) keeping everything that makes macOS believe that your computer is a Mac all contained in the EFI. As I said, I've been doing that with this build since day 1. That's why following this build is so easy. Basically, just copy over the EFI folder and you are good to go.

Hackintoshing nowadays leaves macOS unmodified. Even hackintoshing with AMD CPUs no longer requires custom kernels. Whatever patches are necessary can all be accomplished with Clover or OpenCore.

If I'm correct in my assumption of what "vanilla" means, there really isn't much that isn't vanilla when using modern hackintoshing methods.

Weird!

Please try clearing NVRAM by pressing F11 at the Clover Boot Menu and, also, please post your config.plist.

The EFI folder looks fine. I don't know what can cause the Internal port to disappear. Are you sure you are booting from the correct EFI partition?

Updated my OpenCore EFI folder to Alpha 2.

Changes:
  • FileVault working now.
  • PS2 keyboard and mice work now.
  • Updated drivers.
  • Beautified the icons.


You can find it on post #7366.

Things are basically OK, except for one issue: my external USB 3 enclosure will drop off once or twice a day... then remount. I've tried hubs, PCIe cards, right into the MOBO. Different ports on the mobo. Swapped enclosures and cables. Regardless of what hardware tweaks I make, it still happens. Maybe once every 12 hours or so.

I have limited my USB ports to 15, using a SSDT_USB.aml.

Any suggestions? 10.14.6.
