Some questions:Hi @CaseySJ. I had to have a perfect EFIi for Catalina. But for a long time I did not use my PC as hackintosh. Now I'm trying to install Monterey but can't get to OpenCore screen. It always reboots to BIOS. What I have tried;
1- My working EFI for Catalina (obviously not working)
2- Replacing OpenCore files with updated ones. (not working)
3- A new EFI created by OC Gen X. (not working)
4- A new config.plist created by Proper Tree.
I'm on BIOS F9 (without letter) now. And, when I was on Catalina, I was using Intel GPU. Now I want to use MSI Gaming Trio X 6900 XT (it should be XTX variant I think). I tried with iGPU, too, but it did not work, too.
Do you have an advice for me?
- Are you able to boot into Catalina?
- When you say you're "trying to install Monterey", does this mean you created a brand new USB install disk for Monterey?
- Or does this mean you actually booted into Catalina and you are trying to install Monterey from System Preferences --> Software Update?
- If you have created a brand new USB install disk for Monterey, did you first format the USB flash disk in macOS Disk Utility with:
- Format = MacOS Extended (Journaled)
- Scheme = GUID Partition Map
- If so, please compress and post the EFI folder from the USB install disk, but remove serial numbers from PlatformInfo section of config.plist
- If Windows is installed on the computer, please launch Windows and run an app such as HWINFO64. We can use this app to determine the Device ID (DID) of the AMD RX 6900 XTX. If the device ID is not 0x73BF, then we have to create a DeviceProperty in config.plist to change the Device ID to 0x73BF.
