@Ali,

If you are still using OpenCore, please try disabling NVMeFix.kext as shown:

Other questions:
  • Was Migration Assistant used to transfer files and folders from a previous installation? Or is this a clean system?
  • Which WiFi/BT card are you using? You mentioned "Apple Broadcom BCM943602CDP", but can you provide a link to the actual product?
    • Have you tried removing this device?
  • Which version of BIOS is installed? Is it F9i or F9g? We do not recommend F9j or newer at this time.

@ CaseySj,
Thank you for the prompt response. I really appreciate the effort and your willingness to help.

I always do a clean installation, so I didn’t use Migration Assistant.

This is the WiFi / BT card I use.

https://www.osxwifi.com/product/mac...3602cdp-802-11-a-b-g-n-ac-with-bluetooth-4-2/

I did not check the effect of removing the card. It didn't make sense to me because I used that card on a previous Ivy Bridge build (GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H) and there were no system crash issues. In fact the only problem I had was related to the USB 3 speed.

I am using the bios version of F9i (Elias64FR).

Could we do an analysis of the errors that appear in the console? It would certainly be useful to know the reasons why the system is constantly crashing.

I ask this because I have a huge number of errors in the console that occur literally every second.
The com.apple.AmbientDisplayAgent Invalid display 0x41dc9d00 error is especially annoying

After which the monitor itself falls into sleep mode and wakes up every few seconds until I turn off and turn on the monitor again.




*** UPDATE ***


Unfortunately for me disabling NVMeFix.kext did not help. The system continues to crash as before. As I wrote earlier of less help is turning off Spotlight indexing (sudo mdutil -a -i off).

When I don't do that, the system crashes at least once every 2 minutes.

@Ali,

Two options make sense at this time. Other options might make sense after these two have been attempted:
  1. To determine whether AmbientDisplayAgent affects the RX 560, we should switch to Intel iGPU.
    • However, on the RX 560 itself please check if there's a switch that toggles between Overclock (OC) mode and Silent (normal) mode. If there is, toggle it into the Silent (normal) position. Then see if it affects system stability.
    • Switching to Intel iGPU is straightforward:
      • Every OpenCore EFI folder I provide in this thread contains a template file called config-Intel-iGPU.plist.
      • Transfer your PlatformInfo credentials into that file.
      • Backup or rename your existing config.plist (maybe rename it to config-original.plist)
      • Then rename the modified config-Intel-iGPU.plist to config.plist and copy to the EFI/OC folder
      • Shutdown the computer.
      • Flip power switch on PSU to OFF position. DANGER: Failing to do this can cause permanent damage to motherboard.
      • Physically remove the RX 580 (flip open the retention clip on PCIe slot before pulling out the card).
      • Connect monitor to onboard HDMI port or to either of the two USB-C ports (on rear IO panel).
      • Flip PSU power back ON.
      • Power on the computer.
      • Go to BIOS Setup and change Initial Display Output to iGPU.
      • Save BIOS settings and exit.
      • Boot macOS.
      • How is the system stability now?
  2. Physically remove the Broadcom WiFi/BT card:
    • Again, shutdown system and flip power switch on PSU to OFF position!!!
    • Remove the card.
    • Flip PSU back on and power up.
    • How is the system stability?

We have a file in the Repository called GC-Titan-Ridge-V2.0-Mod-NVM50-CaseySJ.bin, which is identical to the file you uploaded except for a few bytes that we intentionally modified to enable Thunderbolt Bus.
I had a feeling that was the case. Check this out, I always save original ROMs along the way and I have two 23 firmwares, one that you already have and one that may be different. Attached are the two because I can't remember which one is which.

Hi everyone,

I updated my machine from opencore 0.6.3 to 0.7.3 (Catalina 10.15.7) using Opencore Configurator 0.7.3 and everything looks good (thanks you!) except one minor issue when using opencore picker 0.7.3. In 0.6.3 I was able to use left and right keys of my apple magic keyboard connected by lightning to USB cable
In 0.7.3 I this feature does not work anymore so I have to use a wired USB generic keyboard to switch OS (Mac OS & Windows).
Any thoughts on this one?

Thank you!

Hi again,

One thing that I have found that isn't working properly since moving to Opencore and upgrading to BigSur is shutdown. Where is a good place to start debugging what is wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Please try disabling OpenUsbKbDxe.efi as shown:

In BIOS, try disabling Wake on LAN.

Please see this post:
They temporarily set csr-active-config to 67000000 to allow macOS to update.

Please try this and let us know if it helps.
