Hey guys,

Is the Fully Bootable Backup Procedure for BIG SUR identical to the Catalina version as stated in the Mini Guide or is there some changes to be aware of? I searched but could not find anything related.

Trying it ATM. Cant break anything I guess.

Thank you
The backup procedure for Big Sur is the same as for Catalina. There is one weird thing to note about Big Sur, however:
  • The first backup of Big Sur uses Apple's "APFS Replication" tool to duplicate both the System and User volumes.
  • The second and all subsequent backups will only clone the User volume.
  • So if the first backup was done with Big Sur 11.3, for example, and you make another backup after installing Big Sur 11.4, the System volume on the backup disk will still be 11.3.
    • If you would like to backup 11.4 to the same backup disk, it will be necessary to erase the backup disk in Disk Utility and then run CCC again.

Update: Modified the Carbon Copy Cloner guide:

Just getting around to trying the "Radeon Speed Boost" kext on my z390 designaire, Vega 64, OC 0.69, MacOS 11.3 build. So far so bad. My machine refused to boot w/ SSDT-Z390-Vega64-Slot-1.aml & RadeonBoost-v1-4+Vega.kext and WEG enabled. I did add entries to my OC config.plist to the best of my abilities (which I assume where correct).

My question is pretty basic: Which Slot on the board is considered 1 or 2 for the .aml?
This is what my Z390 Manual looks like. I'm GUESSING the (PCIEX16) Slot is labeled "1" somewhere that I'm unaware of?

Thanks,
Correct -- the PCIEX16 slot is Slot 1.

Good job!


Unfortunately we're not aware of any solution for this (yet) with the Intel Bluetooth module. But if you connect Apple Mouse and Keyboard via USB cable, then they should work.

I use Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard, which work in BIOS and OpenCanopy with no issues.
If you're using an Apple Magic Mouse 2, which has a lightning port on it, you can use the keyboard in BIOS if you connect a lightning cable to it from your computer. It will work as a USB keyboard.

We need someone with a solid, reliable OpenCore EFI for this motherboard to request admin privileges for HackinDROM App.

Also note that we won't be able to add every motherboard to HackinDROM App.

Please see this post:

The ZIP for OpenIntelWireless is posted there (last file).
Just for info: I'm using .69 with Intel Wireless on a usb boot and both Blutooth and wireless work with a bit of fiddling. Re-set blutooth to make it work and wifi takes a while to connect but good progress.

I ran the Big Sur Backup according to the Catalina Mini Guide. All went well except a warning after completion regarding the post shell script.

I was able to boot from the Backup SSD without problems though.

Let me see what I can do. My secondary system (Z370 -see sig) was boxed-up months ago. It's running Clover and Big Sur because I couldn't get OC and Mojave to work on it after several attempts.

UPDATE: I still can't get any version of OC to work with Mojave on the Z370. I've used BIOS F14, F14n, and F15b. No dice and a frozen boot screen. Clover is fine with any of these BIOS versions.

Checklist:
  • Was EFIClone.sh downloaded from here?
  • Is TEST_SWITCH set to N?
  • Was the quarantine flag removed from the script?
  • Was EFIClone.sh copied to CCC's Scripts folder?
  • Was the Scripts folder "secured"?

Hi there, thanks again for a strong build and amazing ongoing support!

I've been rock solid stable for about a year on 10.15.3 until last night when the system started kernel panicking after different periods of being left alone. Been religiously avoiding anything automatically updating so I just don't know what would have caused this new pattern of panics.

i9 9900KF
Designare Z390
Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT SE 8GB
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 4x 8GB (running fine at 2666MHz)
WD SN750 M.2 NVMe
Clover version 5104

I have turned off screen saver and allowing the display to sleep, so far not convinced this has any bearing on the panics. System sleep/wake and waking up a sleeping display have worked perfectly since the original installation a year ago. If I'm actively using the computer (email, web browsing, working in Adobe Premiere) all is good, but if I leave it alone and walk away for 5 minutes I'll come back and it will have frozen/locked up. Weirdly, it appears to be almost exactly 5 minutes each time, based on when I see that the system clock has frozen. A hard reset from the case lets it boot back up and a Problem Report is generated. Attached two of them to this post. The fact that the panic begins with a video freeze (and not the "your computer has a problem" roll down) and the "AMDRadeonX6000" in the backtrace worries me that this is being caused by some weird new thing with my 5700 XT.

I'm considering moving up to a newer version of Catalina, but haven't seen a ton of discussion for moving from 10.15.3 to 10.15.7.

Anything jump out as an obvious thing to check? Or a big red flag in the Problem Reports?

Thanks again for the time/energy on this huge thread, much appreciated --
