Has anyone had an issue where their Hackintosh restarts halfway through booting up when a GPU is plugged in but the system boots into MacOS fine when the card is unplugged? I've tried every solution I've come across. Losing my mind trying to solve a problem for an OOB card supposedly. Rx 580, Z390, i5 9600k. (Can provide more info if anyone can actually help, getting desperate here)
Yes, your HW is supposed to work OOB. Can you attach EFI Folder?

This is what I'm currently using, with just the iGPU everything seems to work fine. Its when I plug the RX580 in that it gets about halfway through startup and then restarts and it does that every time until I remove the RX580. Thanks for the help.

Anyone experiencing issues with Radeon VII and Catalina? I can get mine to boot with latest stable Clover r5070, and latest drivers, but it will only work on the last DisplayPort on the card, and will only show on one monitor. It will not load or detect any other monitors. Was working fine before upgrade to Catalina. I have attached my EFI.

I have the same issue with Vega 56. Only one DisplayPort and the HDMI works. No detect any other monitor.

Ok, I'm getting impatient and thinking of picking up a used e.g. RX 470 for $60 to be able to get hackintosh working again, since my iGPU can't do 60Hz@4k and the 5700XT isn't supported (yet).

Quick question, can I have both GPUs in my Motherboard (physically there's no problem) and use the 5700XT for Windows and RX470 with hackintosh? I'll put the 5700XT in the primary PCI-ex 16x slot and RX470 in the 8x slot, just hope the 5700XT can be disabled with hackintosh and the RX470 won't interfere in Windows.

You can (IMO)! I have RX 550 in slot 1 and, GTX 1060 in slot 2.

Under windows:
- Device Management > (right click) RX 470 > Disable device

Under macOS (EFI): not 100% sure but if possible, you gonna need to build SSDT-DiscreteSpoof.aml
- See that strong guide from RehabMan. OK, this is a bit "complicated" but it's actually the best solution I found for disabling a second GPU.

I think Clover added the functionality to set primary and secondary GPUs with Clover r5051.

I've never tried using it so I have no idea how well it works or how to configure it.

Hi @pastrychef,
I'm totally off-topic but I do need to contact you (or another moderator) in private but since I do not have enough messages I can't do that. I have tried the "contact us" days ago button below but without success.

Is there a way for me to reach you or you to reach me please?

Sorry for off-topic, can't find another way to reach a mod...

EDIT: do not hesitate / please delete this message when you've seen it and we get in touch somewhere else.

Private messages are frowned up here... It's best to use the "contact us" or start a new thread with whatever issues you may have.
