@pastrychef sorry for the offtopic, i have the build of my signature. All this time i'm using Fakesmc.kext with no problems.
I have see your latest EFI folders that you are using VirtuaSMC. Do you believe is better for my system to go also with VirtualSMC?
Thanks in advanced.

Personally, I liked the fork of FakeSMC I was using in my previous EFI because the sensors were better for my hardware. The reason why I switched to VirtualSMC was to fix FileVault. If Catalina 10.15.1 didn't break FileVault with the old drivers, I'd still be on FakeSMC.

@pastrychef If I let my machine idle for more than a couple of minutes it locks up. I get this trace on startup:

Is your system stable in Windows or Linux?

@pastrychef I don't understand what is this MSR 0xE2? What it does why should we need it? I read your first post but still didn't understand. is it mus be locked or unlocked? Mine looks like this; Should I need anything?

It is, it was actually stable in macos Mojave as well. This is new as of clean installing to Catalina.

Please see this post.

It can be pretty easily unlocked. Usually, to unlock it, you just have to make a change to a hidden BIOS setting.

Hmm... The problem looks related to WindowsServer. In my experience, this is usually due to GPU issues. That's why I asked if the system is stable under other operating systems.

If it's a clean install, it can't be due to software... The EFI is being used by quite a few, including myself, and it's working fine... So, my first guess was hardware.

I read that post before. Which hidden BIOS settings are you mentioning? If you are mentioning CFG Lock, I looked at that setting on my Z390 M Gaming BIOS, but it does not have this setting on my BIOS.


Another question; are you still using iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS?

Yes, the CFG Lock. I unlocked it on my Z390 M. It took about a minute.

Yes, I'm on iMacPro1,1.
