I have used Migration Assistant from day 1, even from hack to mac and back. I have had my fair share of problems, but nothing I could attest to using MA. Great tool!If you have a lot of applications to migrate, it might be worth considering Migration Assistant from the Applications --> Utilities folder.
I generally prefer to install applications from scratch. This means having to enter license strings. This might also mean de-licensing the apps on existing system first. If you have quite a few licensed applications, then Migration Assistant might be worth trying.
My main concern with Migration Assistant is that it may migrate various legacy files and folders that can lead to reliability problems.
For data, I just use the Finder to copy my folders.
Tried the USB Flash disk with the 0.8.3. When the SecureBootModel was on Default, it would not run, so I changed it to Disabled. Then the computer started, but the shutdown still does not work.Boot log looks good -- no ACPI table load errors.
At this point it may be a good idea to try the following:
- Grab the latest 0.8.3 folder from here and follow that guide to transfer serial numbers. Then copy the new EFI folder to EFI partition of a USB flash disk and boot from that disk by pressing F12 at Gigabyte Splash Screen. This will open the BIOS boot menu (not OpenCore boot menu). Select the USB flash disk. The OpenCore 0.8.3 boot picker should then appear (with the version number shown on lower right corner of screen). Then boot macOS and see if shutdown works.
- If shutdown still fails, consider installing a fresh copy of macOS on a spare SSD using the new 0.8.3 EFI folder (but set SecureBootModel to Disabled). Then see if the fresh copy of macOS is able to shut down properly.
Are any Thunderbolt devices connected?Tried the USB Flash disk with the 0.8.3. When the SecureBootModel was on Default, it would not run, so I changed it to Disabled. Then the computer started, but the shutdown still does not work.
Will create a fresh copy of macOS in the next days and see if that helps.
Just so weird that the computer actually shuts down - all lights go out, and after 2 seconds turns back on. Not the same as with restart where the USB lights remain turned on.
Will report back with results.
Screen recordings are typically saved to desktop, but when you press CMD-Shift-5 you will see an Options pop-up where you can change the output location.I've tried that. I'm not using a screen recording app - just the built in one (shift - cmd - 5).
I gave quicktime player full disk access as well. No luck>
I also can't play any movies or trailers on Apple TV so I wonder if it's a DRM issue.
shikigvaboot argument? And what system product name are you using (iMac19,1)? Refer to the chart at the top of this article on the WhateverGreen GitHub page.
