Please note:
  • Hackintool is developed by Headkaze
  • HackinDROM App is developed by @Inqnuam
  • OpenCore EFI is completely separate from the motherboard BIOS
  • Neither Hackintool nor HackinDROM make any changes to BIOS
  • We do write data to NVRAM just as real Macs do
So sorry about mixing up the names. I meant HackinDROM. It's like saying OpenClover Confabulator.

Now don't say never, as there is a thin butterfly conspiracy theory of a possibility. Here's how it goes: Nvidia bought ARM -> Apple now has to pay Nvidia to license ARM -> Nvidia pressures Apple to support GeForce cards or pay a higher license cost -> Apple agrees and supports Nvidia cards again -> Then Apple flips everyone the bird and builds their own GPU's. Thus endeth the saga. :lol:
UK authorities are still reviewing the NVidia/ARM deal and have expressed some national security concerns.

The Nvidia-Arm deal also faces headwinds in the United Kingdom, which has said it will conduct a national security review of the deal. Headquartered in Cambridge, England, Arm is considered a crown jewel of the country’s tech industry, and British regulators required it to set UK headcount targets before allowing it to be sold to Japan’s SoftBank Group in 2016.

Fixed:
Removing my UAD Apollo TB cable fixed the issue! @Elias64Fr
Same issue today!

Fixed by unplugging and replugging GPU power 2 cables.

This is probably short-circuit to motherboard issue!
Any electrician here who can help me troubleshooting ?

Consider replacing the two PCI/GPU power cables. Also consider using two different VGA power ports on the PSU.

My EVGA SuperNova 750/850 has 4 VGA power ports so you may also have a couple of extra ports.

Another suggestion (this happened to me): Check if the 24-pin motherboard power cable is fully seated on the motherboard and PSU. A couple of weeks ago I had inadvertently pulled the cable out partially.

This is my PSU (be quiet! Straight Power 11 850W Gold)

Screenshot 2021-08-12 at 14.06.31.png

Currently my GPU 2 power cables are plugged into PCIe1
and Motherboard at MB

You mean i can plugin one of the GPU cable into PCIe1 and the other into PICe2 ?

The EVGA SuperNova has 4 clearly marked VGA power ports. I can choose any two of the four ports.

On your BeQuiet PSU:
  • Choose a different PCIe power port -- in case existing port is bad
  • Also use a different PCIe power cable -- in case existing cable is bad
But also:
  • Check that 24-pin motherboard cable is properly seated on (a) motherboard and (b) PSU

I used this cable to connect my GPU to PSU

double VGA-1 into GPU and the other one on the PSU
Now I use 2 separated cables connecting from GPU to PSU PCIe1 and PCIe2
Let see what happens now!

24-pin motherboard is okay!

@CaseySJ lol, it wasn't !!
After verifying all cables
booted again into macOS
put macOS to sleep
tried to wake it up -> failed
tried restart -> failed
cold boot -> failed

I have already using official BIOS F9i

I think the issue is bigger than I think, or it is related to OC 0.7.2 (power management or else ?)

Will now try to reproduce the issue on Debian and Windows both without OC

Also try an older version of OC

EDIT:
Will definitely try without NVMeFix.kext

"The following features are implemented:

  • Autonomous Power State Transition to reduce idle power consumption of the controller.
  • Host-driver active power state management.
  • Workaround for timeout panics on certain controllers (VMware, Samsung PM981)."

Issue identified
CPU cooler is very big and its metal part touches GPU, so probably it generates short circuit which prevents MB to boot

Switched GPU from PCIEX16 to PCIEX8 and it works as excepted
@CaseySJ its okay to use RX 5700 XT in PCIEX8 ?
