Thanks guys, honestly all this was enough to give me cold feet; not trying to have this much hassle with a $700 piece of kit. I'm going to wait out further support from Apple and AMD and see what happens. I was lucky to get AMD to agree to a return with the kernel panic evidence from both Mac OS and Windows combined. Seems normally they don't take returns on opened items. I'm going to take the opportunity to get my money back sans shipping and stick with the Vega for a bit longer.

Thanks again guys!

Ohlala - this seems a bit discouraging to get a Radeon Vii -
For a lot of video work I was looking at blouse's setup (Aorus 390 Pro/9900k, but with a ASRock radeon vii)
Has anybody used that board for that?

Hi Epic

Keep your AppleGFXHDA.kext in your S/L/E and Try KextsToPatch in Clover

@ngc598,

Thank you for sharing this development! I cannot try because I have already sent back my Vii after also having problems with it in Windows. I was just not getting good vibes for a $700 purchase. :( So I have instead updated to Z390 and 9900k and have a Nitro+ Vega 64 on the way.

Perhaps @juliaan88 & @Benlehot can test this clover patch for the Vii?

Thank you for your testing help us find out where the problem from. Unfortunately this solution isn’t the perfect one. It will kill the GFXHDA driver as well. Hope Apple will update the driver after New Mac Pro on the table. AMD is hopeless.

Has anyone checked to see if you can edit the GFXHDA kext info.plist? Someone with card "working" use DCPIManager and select PCI tab get the Device ID for the Audio. See pic #1 of RX 460 Audio below. Then check to see if it matches any of the device IDs in the GFXHDA info.plist see pic #2.

This is for Catalina, so it should be the latest version of info plist. If you don't see it let me know what the ID is it can be added to the info.plist for testing.

My R VII is in my sons gaming rig right now and he's using it so I can't get the ID.
