Hi, first thank you for your job and sharing EFI.

I have some questions :
I used your 072 EFI et the 072 EFI from xiaovie.

I have z490-e i9-10900k and igpu ( I disabled the 1080ti in first slot with tips found on xiaovie github)

I have triple boot : windows 10 , catalina, big sur

I have everything working on big sur, built-in ethernet wifi bluetooth, igpu hdmi FHD @ 120hz and hdmi sound.

1/ I there a way to get airdrop working ?

2/ The wifi seems not working at the best speed. I reach maximum 70Mbps but in windows I reach 980Mbps.

3/ On catalina i don't have wifi, because I have to inject another kext, and I don't know how and where I can specify which kext ( different Airport kext version ) have to be loaded when I choose on opencore picker to boot on catalina or bigsur ?
How can I specify which kext according to which os is booted ?

4/ how can I be sure the UsbPort.kext you compiled work perfectly on my MB ? Even if I have the same z490-e , how can I check if everything is okay and if there is no conflict ?

5/ is there a way to check if all the system is perfectly stable ? Everything booted well, no kext or drivers not well loaded, bus, drives, memory runs at their optimal speeds ?

Thank you.
Please update your signature with your new build, it helps take the guess work out of trying to support you.
1. You don't say how you are enabling wireless and or Bluetooth. Typically AirDrop only works with a natively supported wireless bluetooth card.
2. Same question as 1.
3. You can't but you can set up two different EFI folders if you have the two versions of Mac OS on separate drives.
4. Test each port. Does it sleep and wake properly, if the answer is yes to both then its probably fine.
5. There is no one way to tell what you are asking, running benchmarks and multiple applications to stress your machine is one way. If your EFI folder is molded after @scope666 you should be fine, used it myself once upon a time.

Leesureone, I see in your profile You have a Z590 Intel platforme with i7 11700K and RX 6800 XT. The 11 generation processor works fine in hackintosh? It's difficult to create usb install and insttall it?

Thanks in advance

It does with the caveat you need a supported graphics card, unlike comet lake builds the iGPU just will not work. See here for more information:

Interesting how they dropped the core count. Seems like the only real benefit is PCI-E 4.0

That's true, there are bunch of articles about Rocket Lake vs Comet Lake and knew going into it. Even Pcie 4.0 doesn't make that big a difference except in data transfer rates and only using a Gen 4 Pcie Nvme ssd. Real world I'm not sure I notice a difference, although my Ryzen system has always had Pcie 4 and that's my daily driver.
Graphics performance is basically the same, at least as of now. It also runs hotter than 10th gen CPUs, another well documented characteristic of 11th gen CPUs.

I set this up as more of an experiment being the Z490 hardware is going to get harder and harder to find and I wanted to see if I could get Thunderbolt 4 Hot Plug up and running. It's stable though and runs anything I can throw at it.

that github page mentions:
  • Intel® Core™ i7-10700K Processor (10th Gen, UHD630)
and not Rocket Lake CPU...

THANK YOU very much scope666!

I got a deal with the Z490E Gaming and when I with your EFI all runs perfect except some USB (I have to map them).
The only problem I had was when I tried to use the second monitor with the iGPU via HDMI the system crashed. Finally got a RX560 4 Gb and no more problem with it.

So:
Asus 490E Gaming
Intel i7 10700K
Corsair 32 Gb DDR4 2400mhz
Shappire Rx560 Pulse 4 Gb
WD Black 1 T b NVMe SSD


Again, thank you very much!

agdpmod=pikera must be used for RX 5000 series, RDNA Navi 2. I suppose for RX 6000 (RDNA Navi 2) series need too. Are You confirm guys?
