This might be interesting...After upgrading to 10.15.5 and BIOS version Z390DESIGNARE.F9g, here is my latest Geekbench score. Looks like it's mostly 10.15.5 responsible, since I checked it before the BIOS update, and it came in somewhere around 74K, but this new score...Never seen it before on my card at all!
Hate to rain on your parade, but that's a 1.7% increase(between 75215 and 74000). I see bigger differences between Geekbench runs, with the same GPU and OS...

You are not afraid about force upgrade by Apple ?

Okay, problems had to arise :banghead:

Yesterday I did a CCC bootable backup, but on my spare HDD (not SSD) that I had. Everything went well, EFI was copied etc.
I am still on Catalina 10.15.2 (I had to change the name of my internal disk to Catalina, it was still Mojave from before, I also changed the "Mojava - Data" to "Catalina - Data"). Later in the night I decided to install Little Snitch because it is something I started using on my macbook pro meanwhile and I wanted my Hackintosh to catch up all the new things I had on my macbook. I also switched on the iCloud Desktop and Documents so my Hackintosh would match my Desktop and Document folders from my macbook pro. After installing little snitch I had to restart, which I did, and on the boot screen I wondered, hey lets try that CCC bootable backup you just made.

First thing, it seems to work, but it's extremely slow like I thought it would be, thus having a SSD was indeed a necessity. So I decided to reboot it because after login it was stuck on an empty screen with just my Desktop background. After that I booted back on the internal MacOS Catalina disk, but now I have this forbidden sign... and this error message when booting in verbose mode :

I havn't changed anything on my working build, no update, no changes to any kext nothing so I don't understand what happened. For information, I tried to boot back on the HDD now connected to a 3.1 USB port, and slow it is but it seems that I'm getting my access to the desktop with app icons and folders...

Please check if you have shikigva=80 in Boot Arguments. If that alone does not help, then try the procedure in this post. It should help with Sidecar as well.

Thank you very much for help
still not work

Hello @killadaninja2,

Casey's Z390 Designare build guides provide all the information and files needed to get macOS running with the common hardware. The users of this comminity have provided many customizations for specific hardware and setups on this common platform, and Casey has kindly collected and indexed those customizations in this build guide so others can benefit.

Your Fractal Design case is specific hardware, so I wouldn't expect someone else to create a ready-made zip-file for your specific system. Instead, please read up and learn from the many resources already available and be amazed at what you will find!

Let me point you in the right direction:
All the information you need is available in the main build guide in post #1 (probably the same place where you found the Fractal .zip file). Your specific question is answered is a section called Custom USB SSDT for Fractal Design R6 Case. It explains what the SSDT is for and how it needs to be installed.

Did you read my post..... sighhhhh

Please try the following:
  • Make a backup and upgrade to 10.15.5 (assuming you're running Catalina). Apple fixed some nasty sleep/wake/notification issues with Reminders.
  • Review the Sleep Aid Guide.
  • Run Activity Monitor and sort the list by % CPU. Then post a screenshot.

Hey, I Unlocked MSR 0xE2, thought it would help and disabled opencore's cfg lock quirks.
The Sleep works for about 1-2 Hours then wakes up.
Only connected USB Devices are mouse, keyboard.
I didn't try 0-SSDT-RTC0.aml, could it help?
Added activity monitor screenshot.

So I believe this is a memory map issue. You may need to clear the memory map. The easiest way to do that is to refresh your current BIOS (uEFI firmware) again and reload defaults. Once this is done you'd have to reset the BIOS or load from a previous profile save.

This is just a possibility here, but I have run int o this quite a while back and it was absolutely a memory map issue for me when I ran in to this screen / error.

EDIT: You'd also have to re-unlock the MSR 0xE2 for native NVRAM.
