Hello all,

First of all, it's my first post and I wanted to thank you all for this great forum and all the infos on it. It was a great support for me to jump into the Hackintosh world :)

And today, I finally decided to post a thread as I'm not able to fix the issue myself and by reading similar posts on the forum.

Preambule:
As said previoulsy, I'm very new to the Hackintosh world and this is my first "semi-success" build for now thanks to CaseySJ's Gigabyte Z490 Vision D build!. So, hope you will be gentle with my knowledges.

Configuration:
Gigabyte Z490 Vision G
Intel I7 10700k
Sapphire Pulse RX 5600 XT
32 Go Corsair Vengance LPX 3200
SSD Samsung Evo 1TB

Running Big Sur Beta with OpenCore 0.6.3

Issue:
Using the config_iGPU.plist (attached in my EFI folder) all is running fine without issues. BUT, with the config_dGPU.plist it's not. Screen goes black after Apple logo and progress bar. System runs fine in background as I can hear sound when hitting enter key. Screen does not display "No signal" but stays black.

This last config.plist is my attempt to have support for my PCIE Graphic card (Sapphire Pulse RX 5600 XT).

I have tried many differents things:
- changing agdpmod=pikera instead of agdpmod=vit9696
- disabled iGPU in the bios
- Using DP instead of HDMI ports
- Testing all DP ports

But none of them seems to fix my issue.

Last info, when I select iGPU as primary graphic in the bios using this config_dGPU.plist, system boots fine. Once I'm logged in, I can change from iGPU to my RX 5600 XT and this working fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

PS: Attached is my EFI folder if someone wanted to look into

Thanks in advance,
J.

You'll need to select and use just one config.plist. Don't leave the _dGPU part in the name if you want to use your 5600 XT dGPU.

Just to let you know that I solved my issue. Apparently it was not related to my config which is good but likely with Big Sur Beta.

I reinstalled MacOS Catalina with the exact same EFI folder and no problems at all.

Best,
