Perfect thanks! Would my USB map get messed up by the migration to the newer OC and Monterey?
The USB SSDT has not changed in a long time. If, however, you're using a customized USB port map, just check whether it is still configured properly in config.plist after the update.

It is also strongly recommended to make a full bootable backup before upgrading to a newer version of macOS.

How do I check if it is properly configured?

Hello.
Just to ask your advice:
Since my first configuration I always had problems with "sleep".
Just in the moment the system enters into the Sleep mode, in just a second it wakes up.

I updated at the time they appeared to Mojave, BigSur, Monterey... and always the same issue.

Previously, in Catalina (if I well remember) I fixed it with that method, and was successful:

Key​
Type​
Value​
Comment​
String​
change Method(GPRW,2,N) to XPRW, pair with SSDT-GPRW.aml​
Disabled​
Bool​
False​
Find​
Data​
4750525702​
Replace​
Data​
5850525702​


But it has not worked from Catalina anymore.

Each time OpenCore is updated I update my system (now on 0.7.7), but It's always impossible to enter sleep mode.

I have an internal USB hub splitter, and there I connect the Fenvi Bluetooth and the Corsair Usb Cooler.

Even if I unplug the Corsair Cooler the no sleeping issue is there, so it has to be something related to the Fenvi Bluetooth... But I need it.

I also tried the USB config method, also without success.

Any clue to solve it?

Thank you!
Fernando

Hey @CaseySJ couple of quick questions: The BIOS experiment has been put on halt, until further notice (resp. @Elias64Fr is still experimenting), did I get that right?

From what I understood enabling Apple VT-d yields a Blackscreen under Windows. Does that happen to everyone? Any workarounds in the works aside from disabling it?

With the newer Operating Systems on the market are the framebuffer patches for UHD still necessary? Is the RadeonBoost still necessary?

Anything else I've missed, while biding my time with my beloved X58? :D

@CaseySJ I keep getting this error as well, and now only one Thunderbolt port works.
If you go through the 0.7.7 Mini-Guide, this problem will not occur. Please give that guide a try (read all the warnings and notes) and see if the problem gets resolved.

Correct.

It has not happened on any of my Intel-based Macs so I'm still puzzled why it happens to others. Haven't identified the cause.

Latest versions of macOS still need patches for iGPU to operate over HDMI port, but not for operating over Thunderbolt (DisplayPort). For output only through Thunderbolt (DisplayPort) we need to set Platform ID to 0x3E9B0007 without using any frame buffer patches.

RadeonBoost was not shown to provide meaningful acceleration in real-world apps, but only in synthetic benchmarks. Hence I stopped recommending it a long time ago.

It's always good to glance at the Quick Reference to Mini-Guides and Micro-Guides for any new entries to the table of contents. For instance, we're now on OpenCore 0.7.7 and there's a reference to the 0.7.7 mini-guide that contains important information.

Cool. Any Updates any time soon? First I heard of it I got giddy as a child, but after the VT-d discovery I didn't hear anything since.

Ok, then I have to make my own discovery through trial and error ;)

Damn! I hoped I could get past as many property injections as possible. I'm still doing it the hard way over ACPI and (to be honest I haven't started debugging yet, but I'm 99.9% sure it's got to do something with property injection, had it already on my X58) Windows gives me BSOD with ACPI_BIOS_ERROR.

Done already, but with close to 3500 pages there is always information you miss (for example, that the ModBIOS of @Elias64Fr is still under development, I picked up in an entirely different conversation between you and another user), so it's always good to ask.

So, any differences between Thunderbolt 4 and 3, that I should be aware of? Any development? Same problems? What else is new? And btw. how are you doing? :)
