Hello @Errabundo,
  • You can certainly clone the Crucial SATA SSD to the ADATA M.2 SSD.
  • The differences are only at the EFI folder level.
Thank you.
I'll study the OC system carefully as my M.2 ssd arrives!

@StefanAM Thanks for the suggestion. Have you seen this solve a similar problem before? I realized this happened after the latest Catalina update that hung on install, so I am rebuilding the machine to see if the problem is not with the boot loader (I have now observed it happening with both Clover and OC).
I had the same problems with zoom. Crash every time. I started to read OpenCore guide, make proper ssdts and the problems disappeared

running into an issue with the radeon (5700 slot1) acceleration. it worked ok on 10.15.3. once I updated it no longer works. I tried Casey's recommendation on the guid and removed the aml file and deleted whatever green from open core. but I still stall on reboot. apple scree and 3/4 progress bar, it just hangs. (using open core 6)

To use a NAVI card such as Radeon RX 5700 we need agdpmod=pikera. We should also use WhateverGreen, but we should remove any RadeonBoost kext.

Is the mini guide no longer valid? I followed your note in the guide. So I shouldn't use the aml or boost kext at all???? In OpenCore, where do I add agdpmod=pikera?

Side note, I see you mentioned Public Beta 2 is out. Is it as easy as just letting the installer run to upgrade from Catalina?

Which mini-guide are you referring to (simply post a URL link)? If you're referring to the Radeon Boost mini-guide, we should remove the boost kext or SSDT when installing a macOS update. We should also remove them when troubleshooting (i.e. process of elimination) to see if that makes any difference.

The boot argument agdpmod=pikera is already in the NVRAM section of OpenCore Configurator. But it's good to check and make sure.

I would definitely not recommend installing Big Sur on top of Catalina. It's best to install it on a spare SSD. At this time I cannot provide any support for Big Sur, but you're welcome to experiment on your own. It is a refreshing experience.

using this Guide
agdpmod was missing and I added it in. however it killed my two display port monitors. only my HDMI is working now
I kept out the the ssd aml as per your recommendations and just kept in the boost kext and the loader stops 3/4 of the way

Hello @Lukey1979,

Instead of overwriting the macOS disk temporarily with Windows, do you have a spare SATA SSD -- even a 96GB or 128GB SATA SSD? These devices should be about US$20 through Amazon and Newegg.

Some comments:
  • I have a gallery of screenshots that can help perform the WireShark capture.
  • After saving the capture file to disk and uploading here, I can modify the liquidctl driver.
  • As of now, liquidctl works best for devices that are managed over USB instead of SMBus. Whereas Thermaltake Riing Plus may be controllable (just need to see if there's a Windows or macOS app for that), Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro will be more difficult.
  • Regarding the video playback issue (shikigva=80), if you still have the CLOVER EFI folder, please try one more time to boot from it and re-verify that Prime Video and other services still play in Safari.
    • The problem may be with the latest version of WhateverGreen.
    • OpenCore folder has new version, but your CLOVER folder probably has an earlier version.
    • Earlier version breaks on-board HDMI, but if all of your video services work, then keep the older version.

Hi Casey,

Ok, so I have just purchased a 128gb Sata SSD. Hopefully it arrives within a week or so. I will let you know once I have received it. If I am to install Windows onto that, would I need to remove my MacOS NVMe SSD. Its currently located in the slot closest to the CPU. I would love to capture some traffic for my Thermaltake Riing Plus fans too. Yes there is software for them called TT RGB Plus.

In regards to my Video Playback issue. Yes I kept a copy of my Clover EFI folder just before I migrated to OC. Can I simply copy that across to my bootable USB that I had created for OC and replace the OC EFI folder with the Clover EFI folder? I am curious to see if I have the same issue under Clover. I did notice however, I was running the most up to date WhateverGreen on Clover too (1.4.1) I usually keep my kexts up to date. I remember having Stan and Amazon Prime working on Safari at some stage but as I don't watch them that often, I cannot recall what version of WhateverGreen I may have been using at the time.
