- Gigabyte Z390 Designare iMac19,1
- RX 5700 XT
Mine's still under warranty, and I could've had it repaired, but that could take weeks. Also no Z390 Designare in stock anywhere near, and this board is so good for hackintoshing. Just so relieved today to wake up and see the computer peacefully asleep, but happy to wake up and start working.Kudos! It happened to me with my Z97 Hackintosh: BIOS boot loop but unfortunately, I had flashed the Ozmosis BIOS for my board. As I understand (now!) from your situation, the backup BIOS probably tried to kick in but it was never updated by me. To resume, backup BIOS was probably from too early a version in my understanding.
I RMA’ed the board and bought the same ´cause I didn’t want to suffer the wait. I still have the old MB in its box and the Z97 is still working with the replacement board.
They probably just reflashed (or replaced) the BIOS chip @Gigabyte.
