** OpenCore 0.7.7 EFI for Z390 Designare **
Supports Mojave, Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey
Please do not quote this post in its entirely. Use a link instead.

Also available from HackinDROM

** NOTE **
Mojave and Catalina Users: Please see "Post-Update Procedure" below.

Please use OpenCore Configurator 2.56.0.0 and ensure that it's set to
0.7.7 Release Version

When using OpenCore Configurator, ensure that only one EFI partition is mounted​


Windows Users:
If you are unable to boot Windows through OpenCore, try disabling AppleVTD by following the bottom half of this post.

Monterey -- What Does Not Work:
  • Intel I-211 Ethernet port driven by SmallTreeIntel82576 is not working at this time. The other Ethernet port (I-219) is fully operational. If a second Ethernet port is needed, options include:
    • USB to Gigabit Ethernet adapter
    • USB to 2.5GbE Ethernet adapter
    • USB-C dock with built-in Ethernet port
    • Thunderbolt dock with built-in Ethernet port
    • Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter (requires AppleVTD to be enabled)
  • Laird BT851 Bluetooth 5.0 USB dongle not working at this time.
  • If Monterey is installed on Samsung NVMe SSDs, boot time can increase by 60-100 seconds due to "trim" incompatibilty.
    • This can be addressed by cloning the Samsung NVMe SSD to another disk, erasing the Samsung NVMe SSD with Disk Utility, and cloning macOS back. Please be careful with this process if you decide to do it.
  • Crucial P2 NVMe SSDs (only P2 series) also suffer from trim issues in Monterey.

This Update Includes:
  • OpenCore 0.7.7
  • AppleALC 1.6.8
  • Lilu 1.5.9
  • WhateverGreen 1.5.6
  • RestrictEvents 1.0.6
  • OpenIntelWireless ZIP:
    • IntelBluetoothFirmware 2.1.0
    • IntelBluetoothInjector 2.1.0 (not used in Monterey)
    • AirportItlwm 2.1.0 for Mojave, Catalina, Big Sur, Monterey
Instructions:
  • Download appropriate ZIP file below and follow these instructions to configure config.plist.
  • If "Resizable BAR Support" is enabled in BIOS, set ResizableAppleGpuBars to 0 in Booter quirks.
  • Copy EFI folder to EFI partition of USB flash disk and boot from USB flash disk.
  • Ensure that REL-077-xxx appears on bottom right corner of OpenCanopy Picker.
  • If everything is okay, mount the EFI partition of USB flash disk and internal macOS SSD, then copy EFI folder from USB flash disk to internal macOS SSD.
Things to Test or Check:
  • Any OCS or other warnings before OpenCore picker appears?​
  • Does macOS boot properly?​
  • Does Bluetooth work? Can you enable and disable Bluetooth?​
  • Does Bluetooth work if you (a) boot into Windows and then (b) boot into macOS without doing a cold start?​
  • If you use "Resizable BAR Support" in Windows, try enabling that in BIOS and check if macOS boots properly.​

Catalina and Mojave Users:
  • Set SecureBootModel to Disabled.

Is this for me @jiffyslot ?
This is for anyone who needs F9i for the Z390 Designare since Gigabyte removed that version. I was lucky to have a backup after F9j became problematic. I am distrustful of any BIOS that does not allow reversion, but that's just me.

Update done !
All works fine but i have now 3 warning OCS.
OCS: NO schema For AudioOut at 2 index, context <audio> !
OCS: NO schema For MinimumVolume at 4 index, context <audio> !
OCS: NO schema For VolumeAmplifier at 8 index, context <audio> !

I do not use the internal sound card, work with a RME Fireface 802.

Thanks CaseySJ

Because the OpenCore config.plist format (called "schema") changed between 0.7.6 and 0.7.7, please let me know how you performed the update:
  • With HackinDROM?
  • Or by downloading the EFI zip file and importing PlatformInfo credentials?

All works well and the new system for the chime being routed to all outputs is a very elegant solution.
I use the built-in intel wifi and bluetooth on Monterey 12.2. Intel Bluetooth does work but breaks after sleep; opening bluetooth settings does reactivate bluetooth most of the time after wake...with heavy cpu-load for about 30s as others have described. Sometimes it fails to come back and bluetooth remains unavailable even in Windows until I do a complete AC-off cold boot.

Have you tried disabling USBWakeFixup.kext? For me this fixed an issue for my FV-T919.

Thanks…. I will be giving this a try.

Btw… do you use any AVB devices?
