I’m glad I’m not the only one who experienced this! I thought I was going crazy. Nowadays, I always rename the config.plist’s if I’m going to have multiple open, then rename the one in use back to config.plist
This is why HackinDROM renames each EFI partition that it mounts. If you use HackinDROM itself to unmount the partition, it will change the name back to "EFI". But I never do that. Once the EFI partitions have been renamed, I leave them like that. My sanity has been saved because of it.

I lost a month during HackinDROM development to figure it out, that's why I decided to mount EFIs with different names
Thank you for renaming every single gosh-darn EFI partition when you mount it. :)

Even other Mac applications such as BBEdit will get all confused when multiple EFI partitions with the same name are mounted.

Is it worth keeping the DP In to the motherboard as well or does that only benefit if you’re passing video through the thunderbolt port?
If your monitor has a USB-C video port or a Thunderbolt port, then (and only then) it makes sense to pass video through the DP-In port on the rear IO panel.

learnt a new word, thank you!

Note that the issue isn't related to OCC but to macOS, I suspect the empty space inside volumes name causing the issue which isn't correctly handled by macOS, I mean when there's multiples mounted EFIs so names are "EFI 1" EFI 2" etc.

Updated to OC 0.7.6 without issue as usual with your excellent instructions. (I manually update files.)

Things to Test or Check:
  • Any OCS or other warnings before OpenCore picker appears? No warnings
  • Does macOS boot properly? Yes - both Big Sur 11.6.1 and Monterey 12.0.1
  • Does Bluetooth work? Can you enable and disable Bluetooth? Fenvi-T919 no problem
  • Does Bluetooth work if you (a) boot into Windows and then (b) boot into macOS without doing a cold start? Yes
  • If you use "Resizable BAR Support" in Windows, try enabling that in BIOS and check if macOS boots properly. Don't Use
Just used HackinDROM to update my Z490 Vision D to OC 0.7.6. We skipped HackinDROM last month so everyone could get reacquainted with the manual method. It certainly felt good to once again hit one button (more or less)...

Hello @Tea-Bone,

Because you're using Z390 Designare, this guide applies:
But after configuring OpenCore per the guide, set SecureBootModel to Disabled. Mojave will not boot otherwise. Once Monterey has been fully installed, we can change SecureBootModel to Default or leave it disabled.

Thanks, that's great. Do you still recommend going to OpenCore 0.7.4 as in the guide, or going straight to 0.7.6 per your more recent post?

We should go straight to 0.7.6.

One more version question, where does the F9 BIOS default on the CFG-Lock and is it recommended? I see it says you can't roll back so it would be risky to test it.

Have you noticed that weird macOS issue when multiple EFIs are mounted?
I have. I had two EFI mounted, one from my regular drive and the other from an alternate boot where I can test new configs. When I would open a config file on one drive and then save changes (I use PlistEdit), it would actually save it to the other EFI.
