Hello everyone!

I have this build and yesterday updated succesfully to Monterey 12.3 from Big Sur.

Previously updated OpenCore to 0.79 and the latest Lilu/Whatever/Alc/etc and did a full mirror backup to a second NVME using CCC "legacy bootable copy", which was something i didn't tested yet and i can confirm works perfectly replicating the os/data/recovery structure on the main drive: the only thing to care about is copying your actual EFI to the mirrored disk EFI if you want a completely independent boot drive.

Everything went smooth at first glance, but boot time exploded considerably, from < 30sec to few minutes.
After a bit of inspection with verbose mode, i tracked it down to Monterey performing a series of trim on the NVMEs during boot which repeteadly ends into timeouts and presents itself on the next boot.

To restore the original boot speed i followed the advice on dortania Opencore manual
"On macOS 12+, it is no longer possible to specify trim timeout for APFS filesystems. However, it can be disabled by setting 0."

So changing this value to 0 restored the normal boot speed but i'm wondering at which cost ?

If i check into system report i still see both disks reporting "TRIM Support: Yes", but afaik trim does get performed during boot from osx, so in the end i suspect the disk is not being trimmed at all.

Any suggestions / feedbacks ??
Thanks in advance

Hi there.

This is a well-known problem with Monterey.

Please see this thread:

Hi to everyone,
In your knowledge at today do you know if Silicon Power NVMe drives are affected by the problem in Trim on last version of Monterey (12.3)?

Question, my perfect system for almost 3 years, won’t start. After The first BIOS beep (sounds normal), I hear one long and three short beeps. No BIOS, black screen. Video card error?
I removed my Vega64, connected cables to intern video card of The Asus Hero X, but BIOS won’t start.

Any suggestions?

Try clearing CMOS.

There should be a tiny button on the motherboard you can press or two pins you can short to clear CMOS. Make sure to disconnect the power cord from the power supply before you clear CMOS.

A quick Google search pulled up a list of ASUS beep codes on a site called softwarekeep. They say 1 long + 3 short means a Conventional or Extended memory failure. Maybe try reseating the memory?

I removed battery (could not find the clear cmos button) and Yes, the hackintosh starts.
Now I’ll rebuild the Vega 64 (56) and give it onother try.
Thanks again
