Awesome! It's working now...

Perfect!
As I can see you have 2 different drives with the same name
Will add more info about the Disks!

Next Steps:
optimize code & performance & GUI
If possible Release a stable version around 1.1.0

Based on this app develop an app which will make easy OC Casey's New builds and Casey's OC Updates!

Actually I might have goofed on that one! ;)

Anyway I tried the latest EFI and it works perfectly. This post is from my Z390 Designare booted with your EFI (but with my serial numbers).

Let's do the following:
  • Download the attached ZIP and copy your serial numberinto it using ProperTree or a Plist Editor. (Do not use OpenCore Configurator 2.27.0.0)
    • This version uses DEBUG build of OpenCore 0.6.5.
    • This version enables logging to disk.
  • Each time you boot with this EFI, a log file will be created in the EFI partition of the boot disk (or USB flash disk).
  • Please attempt 2 or 3 boots, then Mount EFI partition of the USB flash disk and post the three log files.
ok, great, will give this a shot in a bit. Is ProperTree download link listed somewhere here? Is this a GitHub download or an alternative site I can grab this for my Mac Found it

ProperTree is available from here. But it might be better to use BBEdit or PlistEdit Pro (click the "Free Download" button for either of these two).

Or grab OpenCore Configurator 2.26.0.0 from here. This version supports OpenCore 0.6.5.

Offhand I don’t recall the remedy we used for this in the past, but please try changing SMBIOS name to iMacPro1,1 as mentioned by @Inqnuam. No need to change serial numbers. Just change the name temporarily to see what happens.
I did this, still the same problem.

Has anyone tried this command ? IDK but it may be the same for mediaanalysisid too.

Code:
sudo launchctl remove com.apple.photoanalysisd

To reenable it:

Code:
sudo launchctl load com.apple.photoanalysisd
I tried this, and even if the terminal confirmes "disabled", the daemon still comes up after some minutes.

I wonder if deleting the photo library file and rebuilding it might solve the underlying problem? (Volunteers should of course fully back up their system before doing this.)

After going to the extreme of completely fresh install 11.2 on a sepratae SSD with the same OC like on the system nVME and exactly the same error occured, I narrowed it down to the mediaanalysisd daemon. I read quite a bit on the net about it, apparently this is more specifcaly looking at videos in the photo library - but correct me if I'm wrong.

On the completely fresh install of 11.2, I logged into iCloud, turned on the Photo sync. It satrted to sync to the cloud and all photos/videos appeared. Then mediaanalysisd kicked in and 2 minutes later it crashed.

I disabled iCloud Photos, deleted the Photos library file all together. Restarted Photos.app, it asks me where the library file is, I say create new. So with the new empty library file mediaanalysisd never comes up at all - and no more crashes!

I did the same in my main nVME system install, so now I don't have iCloud Photos on and the Photos library is empty. And no crash!

I wonder what this strange behaviour is. Don't you all sync your pictures with iCloud? and none of you has this issue? Maybe I have some wicked pictures/videos in my iCloud? Or some video file is causing the daemon to crash...?

So the only workarround for me is to not sync my iCloud Photos - which is not satisfying at all, given that it was working in Catalina. What is Big Sur doing wrong here - if at all. I want my Photos sync back! :D

Any ideas?

thanks

@plattine,

I have never enabled iCloud Photos and never plan to do so. I use Photo Stream that syncs the last 1000 photos.

My photo library is quite large and I keep one backup on a RAID-5 storage array and another backup on a 10TB USB hard drive that can be kept at a family member’s home (offsite backup).

@CaseySJ, you do practice what you preach!:clap: Backup of the backup. I had a high end RAID-5 array go bad in a professional environment. I will never trust a single appliance again.

Looks pretty good. Although, I agree that it needs to read volume names.

I might ne completely wrong here but with that kind of behaviour you never know.
Did you test your RAM ?
My last build was behaving completely wrong and after many attempts to fix the software, it was indeed the hardware that was faulty.
My 2 cents.

Anyone using Mac Ppro 7,1 as an SMBIOS and finding Thunderbolt with Titan Ridge working?
