- Gigabyte Z390 Designare
- Vega 56
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.Just updated my primary Designare Z390 from Big Sur 11.6.1 to Monterey 12.0.1. No problems experienced. Namely:
All of my previous Monterey installations were on secondary Hackintosh systems, and all were fresh installs. This is my first in-place upgrade.
- 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.
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.
Any workarounds for the smallTree issue that anyone knows of or do I need to roll back to Big Sur?
