Hi guys,
I have the same motherboard. I can't install nothing in it, except for Windows 10. For that reason I want to know what version of BIOS do you have?
I don't know if the reason that I can't install macOS is the BIOS. I ask because I contacted Asus support who said that they only support Windows 10.
My BIOS version 2804...
Thanks

i don't migrate to OpenCore i managed to install macOS Big Sur, with the same hardware... following the instructions of @PhantomSlapESQ, and all went very well. I still have some problems but i'm almost there...

Wondering if anyone has migrated this hardware combination onto OpenCore?

@SocialWorker and I have a slightly different motherboard. We have the "Pro" and this is the "M", but my steps would be similar. The Clover/Unibeast install only worked with Mojave because of iGPU issue (though it might be possible to make it work), and I started fresh with OpenCore seeing that as an easier way to troubleshoot. Since the "M" has a DVI and HDMI slot, the framebuffer entries will be different and will require testing before going to Catalina for either Clover or OpenCore if using Whatever green. I recommend following the BusID guide on the official OpenCore manual.

Here is my guide

Yeah, I have this with OC 6.2 and Big Sur and it runs great WAY better than Catalina does. I have Updated the First Post with the OC 6.2 EFI folder for my rig. Enjoy!

Hi Everyone I am a little Bit confused with the ACPI under OpenCore, Normally I used to have 1 folder under ACPI-Patched- My Custom SSDT so now do we need to add other files in this ACPI under OpenCore ?

@jbarnette is it possible for you share your EFI folder please.
My latest EFI is in the first post

I will tell you that I had that happen do I had to move my OpenCore off to a USB thumb drive. But it works great and is easy to back up. I got tired of fighting with it. if I had a drive with windows it would boot that no matter what I did. If I take out the windows drive then I can boot from the EFI on the NVMe drive but if the windows drive is installed on the machine then it will not boot. But I just got a thumb drive and put my open core on it and put it in the back of the machine. Works great! I'm running 6.2 with BigSur/Catalina/Windows 10/and Linux all on separate drives of course. But moving the OpenCore to the USB drive made life WAY easier!
