Just updated my primary Designare Z390 from Big Sur 11.6.1 to Monterey 12.0.1. No problems experienced. Namely:
  • OpenCore 0.7.4.
  • Boot time is normal with ADATA SX8200 Pro NVMe SSD.
  • Fenvi FV-T919 WiFi and Bluetooth working normally without using BlueToolFixup.kext
  • As expected, Intel i211 Ethernet port does not connect because Monterey impairs the SmallTreeIntel82576 kext.
  • Intel i219 Ethernet port driven by IntelMausi.kext is okay.
All of my previous Monterey installations were on secondary Hackintosh systems, and all were fresh installs. This is my first in-place upgrade.

Note: Samsung 970 Evo and Evo Plus NVMe SSDs -- and possibly Samsung 980 NVMe SSDs -- may lead to significantly increased boot times due to trim-related issues. If macOS is installed on one of these drives, it may be best to wait a little while to see whether Acidanthera (developers of OpenCore) find a solution.
well rats. I am being bitten by the smallTreeIntel82576 issue. I need both of my network ports. ONe is for my regular ethernet and one is for my Waves Soundgrid audio interface.
Any workarounds for the smallTree issue that anyone knows of or do I need to roll back to Big Sur?

There are some immediate options:
  • Thunderbolt docks have Ethernet ports that can be used.
  • USB-C docks are much cheaper and also provide Ethernet ports.
  • Some USB-to-Ethernet adapters should work.
In my case, I already have:
  • Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter. It works when AppleVTD is enabled.
Shortly I’ll test Ethernet ports on my existing OWC and Belkin Thunderbolt docks, and on my existing USB-C dongle.

Update:
  • Gigabit Ethernet port on USB-C dock works properly in Monterey
  • Gigabit Ethernet ports on both OWC and Belkin Thunderbolt 3 docks work properly in Monterey

I am having an interesting problem that has just started happening. Whenever I boot, the only drive that finder recognizes is the main OS drive. Any internal or external drives don’t show up. Disk utility doesn’t see them but they show up on the sata and usb screens of system information. Any ideas? Did several restarts, unplugged, reset NVRAM. On Monterey with OC 7.4.

** Experiencing Slow Boot Times in Monterey? **
Please try this and report your results:
I have a Samsung 970 EVO plus 500Gb. Read/Write speeds are ~3000Mb/s, so no complaints there. Tbh I never bothered with the boot time, which is 27 seconds from OC-picker to login. But then again my mid-2009 MBP (max spec 3.06Ghz :thumbup: ) boots faster than that..
result:
f10@iMac ~ % log show --last boot | grep "trims took"
2021-10-27 13:55:58.435995+0200 0x351 Default 0x0 0 0 kernel: (apfs) spaceman_scan_free_blocks:3153: disk2 scan took 18.724585 s, trims took 18.672743 s

2021-10-27 13:56:03.628879+0200 0x917 Default 0x0 0 0 kernel: (apfs) spaceman_scan_free_blocks:3153: disk3 scan took 0.873097 s, trims took 0.808353 s
So trims took 18s, about half of what others posted for a 1TB Samsung 970-type drive - makes sense I guess

PS: I got the gigabit i211-port working with @Shaneee 's modified 'AppleI2xx.kext' - works flawless so far, but have only tried for a few hours.

Hello,

Sorry for the noob question.

Would it be possible to have a mini-guide to install Windows 11 and dual boot ? I’m afraid to do it without messing my efi partition or else.
(Thanks again Casey and others for the best support, everything is running so smooth for years update after update..)

Only Big Sur is installed on M1 Nvme disk . (OC 7.4)
I have a sata SSD that could be used for Windows but i rather keep it for storage if possible.
Can i partition the Nvme disk to install Windows ?
If not, can I install Windows on the sata SSD without removing the Nvme disk (someone built the pc for me)
Do i have to change bios settings ?

thanks for your help !

1. Get Hackintosh up and running with opencore
2. Get another SSD to install windows 11 on.
3. unplug the hackintosh SSD while installing windows 11.
4. when windows 11 is working fine, plug the SSD with MacOS back in, and set that as first boot device.
5. Find both your volumes in opencore picker, and control + enter the MacOS Partition, cause it's highly illegal to have windows 11 as the primary boot. ;)

This is the easiest way, to prevent f**ing up your boot. =)
