I'm just wondering why you include OpenUsbKbDxe.efi in the Drivers section, when according to the OpenCore website, and I quote, it is "not recommended and even harmful on Ivy Bridge and newer"?

It was killing my keyboard at the EFI menu level, and it only worked when I deleted this driver.

Not to mention that at one point, WIndows would keep booting into a keyboard selection menu and I couldn't get past it until the only recourse left was to restore the Microsoft EFI. I suspect this driver was also responsible.

Just want to comment on this.

I checked CaseySJ's OC 0.6.4 folder. The OpenUsbKbDxe.efi driver is in the "drivers" folder, however, it is not activated. Meaning, it is not listed in the config.plist > UEFI > Drivers. He probably forgot to remove it. But there is no way that driver is doing something wrong to your boot picking. But I can't be certain.

Besides, KeySupport is enabled, so OpenUsbKbDxe.efi is not necessary, especially not for your system. So you may remove it, if you want to.

It seems like Security Update 2020-007 Mojave has fixed that annoying screen freeze that happens when you have UAD Software for Universal Audio interfaces installed. Please try it and report...

I may have inadvertently activated the driver when I ran the config.plist through ProperTree and saved it. Nevertheless, if the driver is for systems older than Ivy Bridge, then it should have never been there, unless it was for some special reason I would like to be aware of.

Sleep: my system will sleep when I force it from the apple menu, but not based on the sleep setting in system preferences--energy saver. my apple TB display sleeps after the proper interval, but the system continues to run.

the only USB device plugged in currently is the BT on my Fenvi card. I changed the setting on HS11 in the UAIC SSDT to external since I am using a USB splitter to connect both BT and the USB 2 ports on my case.

I tried unplugging the splitter from HS11 and still no schedule-based sleep.

I reconnected the splitter, then ran the terminal command to see what is preventing sleep.

the output is attached.

thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Thank you for pointing this out.

If @cheetoh had followed the mini-guide he would not have run into this. I do not recommended the use of ProperTree's "blind self-configuration" option for reasons like this.

We experiment with different EFI drivers and we keep some of those drivers in the EFI folder in case someone wants to enable them. There may even be superfluous kexts in the EFI folder, but they are not referenced in config.plist.

Bottom Line: Do not use ProperTree's self-configuration option.

Hi @CaseySJ,

I switched from Clover to OC but I was considering switching back to Clover due to booting issues. If I have a bootable backup, can I simply replace the EFI folder and add back the kexts in /L/E and be good to go? Or are there other steps I would need to take?

Thanks you for all of your help.

You know I am going to refer to you automatically to the Sleep Aid... ;)

Some questions:
  • Are you running Mojave or Catalina?
  • What boot issues are you experiencing?
  • Which version of OpenCore are you using?
  • How often do the boot issues occur?

Hi @CaseySJ !
I recently switched from Clover to OC and updated to Big Sur following your guides. i used the latest OC package from the Mini-Guide in this threat. Problem is that now my Blackmagic PCI card ist not recognised by the system anymore. Has there been any change in the config of the PCI slots? I am new to OC so I am not really sure where to start my investigation. Thank you in advance!
