Yes,
I made a mistake of upgrading Catalina, and all went South! It took only one hour to revert back! Well, I ended up upgrading from Sierra to Mojave.
I have a horrible video card on my ASUS Maximus VIII Hero, and wondering if I could upgrade to a 3D-capable video card, such as NVIDIA Quadro P4000? Anyone tried this?

@Stork, hello! can you please attach your clover folder? All USB disconnects after selecting a boot disk, I don’t know what to do ...
Although once all the same it booted from a flash drive by some miracle, it no longer comes out

What version of macOS have you installed?

(I don't post my EFI or config.plist files as you don't learn how to debug your installation.)

10.15.1
Before that, I had never encountered such behavior, everything started with a half kick (not counting any triviality)
Now everything fell on apfs_module_start:1683, and how to get patched aml's if i cant boot, I have no idea (and what to do next, but now I successfully booted along with SSDT-EC.aml)

I want to see the folder to see the installed drivers, kexts, patches, etc. Maybe I am missing something important ...

  1. Create an EFI folder. Make sure it has the SSDT-EC.aml file.
  2. Put it on the EFI partition of a USB flash drive.
  3. Boot from the USB flash drive.
  4. Fix the EFI on your boot drive.

Thank you, I already know that :D

How to get this same SSDT-EC.aml, if the system does not boot in principle, that is the question?
Is this a feature specifically for this motherboard? On all my others, the USB limit fix was corny enough ...

By the way, I generated it, now the second monitor for HDMI does not work ...

If you create a working EFI and put it on a USB flash drive, you can boot from the USB flash drive and fix your existing install. No need to start fresh.

You can even use Windows to create your USB booter.

Hello! Nice tuto, thanks! Everything is OK but not totally. :) On "About This Mac" my GTX 1070 is 8191MB (perfect) but on Unigine Heaven only 256MB! My score is only 2067... (i7 6700k / Maximus VIII Hero / 16GB / SSD and GTX 1070)

Any idea to save me! 'Cause I suppose in game that will be the same problem.

Thanks !
