I have already done this. Erased one SSD as APFS and GUID but i still get the same Errormessage.

By the way I'm using a Samsung m.2 SSD, if that matters.
or shall I create a dedicated partition for EFI? although i think that that should have already happened, doesn't it?


[Edit:07.19. 20:51] Somehow it worked after reboot... I'm now installing Catalina. hopefully
it´ll work.

[Edit: 21:12] I'm through with installing and ready to go with mounting EFI!

EDIT: Stupid question but you went into the bios / uefi and enabled XMP 2 mode for the RAM to run at it's rated speed?
Wow can't believe I forgot to check BIOS. With XMP 2, my RAM is running on 3200 MHz now. Huge thanks!

I will show you how to modify USBInjectAll.kext, which requires software tools, Hackintool, ProperTree, MaciASL。

...

The built-in USB2.0 port of the Z490 motherboard will be mounted on the USB2.0 HUB. When you use the Broadcom wireless network card, Bluetooth is connected to the USB2.0 port of the motherboard and will not be available, so you must modify USBInjectAll.kext The Bluetooth device works normally, if your USB device ID is 06ED, please use the repaired kext!

This is fantastic! Thank you!!!

Holy crap, this actually works! I'm going to update the EFI.zip shortly. This is the first time in a LONG time I've gotten both monitors to work with iGPU. This is EXACTLY why I bought this motherboard instead of my usual Hero ... the Hero doesn't have both outputs anymore! Not sure what Asus was thinking.

LG = DP, Asus = HDMI


@xiaoviejiang Something must be different about your build because I get an instant reboot when it tries to initialize graphics with your new device id: "0x9BC50003 => i5-10600k and above CPU shipped with UHD 630 kernel display"

EDIT: 1st post updated with new EFI.zip. I still need to upgrade OC and fold in my changes. (zip is on 0.59, although I just looked and 0.60 still isn't officially released)

Also, has anyone running this EFI updated to 10.5.6 yet? Just wondering if there will be any issues.
I just followed your new EFI with the patched WEG & Lilu, HDMI works now, however both DP&HDMI aren't able to drive my DELL P2415Q at 4k (only at 1440p), if I revert WEG & Lilu to pre-released version then 4K is back but HDMI is gone. I don't particularly need HDMI at the moment so I'm sticking with your old EFI...

btw, anyone has got Sidecar working? It's always showing a black screen for me.

Coming so far, now I'm stuck at mounting my EFI from OSX.
Do I have to do anything different than before? (eg. MountEFI-> select disc)

Because it will not mont?
[Edit:] Got it. It was already mounted but i thought it would be like a disk on the workspace, but it was just under locations.

Thank you all for your help. Now I have to make my graphics card work and i have to map my USB-Ports.

There's some GREAT info here to help with both of those items:

https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Post-Install/

Pretty sure he has a working config for the 5700XT here:

https://github.com/xiaovie/-Hackintosh-i7-10700k-ROG-STRIX-Z490-A-GAMING-RX-590.zip/releases

also: https://dortania.github.io/GPU-Buyers-Guide/modern-gpus/amd-gpu.html#native-amd-gpus

"Note: Most Navi cards currently require the boot argument agdpmod=pikera to get proper display out, also keep in mind DisplayPort can be a hit or miss as WhateverGreen needs to be adapted. See here for more info: RX5700XT: No dual monitor with WEG "

Can also use current EFI and just replace WEG & Lilu with latest "stable" versions that don't have the HDMI fix.

I only have an iPad Air 2 which isn't supported. From what I've read you have to have the iGPU enabled even if you're using dGPU as Sidecar uses the iGPU for the h.265 acceleration required.

require the boot argument agdpmod=pikera
Can you please help me where to enter this in plist? I have no such register. Or do I have to build the kext from beginning? Some USB-Ports have been activated after realising, that USB-All was not active yet. Have to check which are working correctly.

(I don't think, that any of you can help me with my Adobe Lightroom 6 problem. It instantaneously crashes when I try to open it. The problem is that the installationprogramm is 32bits, therefore i can't reinstall on catalina...)

But thanks so far for all your support!

Boot args go inside the config.plist in your OC folder:

You can probably remove the two I have (they are for fixing DRM with my Radeon card) and add the new one in its place.
