Although I have done it before; this is still a very guide that's up to date for Asus Maximus VIII Gene. I've used this guide for High Sierra. Thank you, once again Stork.

Hi Stork and fellow hackers - if you have some time and don't mind the trouble, can I ask for your advice on an issue I'm having?

I replaced my old GTX 950 for a Sapphire RX580 recently because I couldn't find a way to get the Nvidia card to work for a post-HighSierra macOS. Figured that would be the easiest way to solve the issue. So I did a fresh install of Mojave with the new RX 580 (followed this thread's instruction with Lilu+WhateverGreen and all), and everything seemed okay until I realised the card wasn't working as it should.

Photoshop lags, Chrome lags (so I disabled hardware acceleration) and I can't run the gpu benchmark function over at Geekbench. Seems like the GPU was installed or configured wrongly. So now my computer is basically just an Internet station.

I've tried several suggestions raised on similar forum posts but couldn't find one that fixed my problem. Do you have any idea what could be the issue here? Or at least know where I can find some relevant info to salvage my hackintosh?

Thank you so much!

Hello- Just did a complete wipe of machine. When trying to boot off of the usb to install macOS, it freezes at the end of the black and white progress bar with the apple above it. In verbose mode, I get the following (see attached). Any help appreciated.

Is the USB installer made with UniBeast/Clover or OpenCore? What version of macOS?

Hello - I just updated Clover to 5128. When I reboot, the white Apple comes up with no progress bar and hangs. In verbose mode, I just see "********" going across the top of the screen and that's it. When I boot up from a UniBeast thumb drive and use Clover from there, everything is fine, and I can boot from there (except sound for some reason is gone). Any help appreciated. Thank you!

Did you (re)map your USB ports? Big Sur is very particular about USB port mapping.

BTW, I'm still on Catalina with this builid.

Can you point me in the right direction to see how to do this? Still loving this build after 5 years!
