I've been scouring trying to catch up by furiously reading all there is on OpenCore to leave my Clover world behind. Following all guides here, I've successfully booted using my new OC068 efi with Bios F9i on Catalina 10.15.7. Thanks!
I have one or two newb questions, if you (or all the gracious participators) can shed light on:
1) I read that the kext USBInjectAll-071 is for Mojave down, but 076 is Catalina and up. So why are BOTH in your sample Kexts folder and config.plist? My new OC 068 works with both, but I was wondering (since I'm on the latest Catalina) if I should only have 076.
Does this answer the question?
This enables Thunderbolt hot plug so we can connect and disconnect Thunderbolt devices without rebooting.2) In reading this thread from 29xxx-3050x I "almost" thought I understood, but; what is the SSDT-TB3-HackinDROM.aml for?
I suppose that's benign, but technically incorrect. We should just remove it entirely by clicking the minus icon as shown:3) My SMBIOS is iMacPro1,1, so as such I changed my config list to move the framebuffer Device Properties to the "Delete" section. Is this the correct thing to do for a non-active iGPU SMBIOS? (pretty sure it is).
In OpenCore we can simply disable the Enable checkbox for the Thunderbolt SSDT without physically deleting the file. Does the eGPU appear in System Information --> Graphics/Displays or in System Information --> PCI?4) Hopefully the answer to question #2 might help me with this next one but, I'm back to not being able to utilize my Sonnet eGFX on thunderbolt in Resolve. As a reminder, I HAVE NOT flashed by TB, but per our old conversation, once I disabled hotplug, it worked for Resolve only. Now, in OpenCore, I removed the aml for hotplug (and config), but alas, it's still not working. I tried CSM on, and "boot once" in bios, so it's gotta be I'm just doing something wrong in this new world of OC.
