There are numerous problems. Missing files and config.plist entries. I think it would be best if you used OC Gen-X and followed my guide instead of the Dortania guide to make your EFI folder. Watch the video tutorial. I've attached the ACPI folder to show you everything that needs to be included there as an example.

Thank you, I will try again with your guide.

did they not only make the one? :)
Just a few more than one. There are more than 50 possible desktop Haswell chips that could be used.

Here's a fun fact for the day. The original name was not Haswell, it was Molalla !
Haswell is named after Haswell, Colorado (Originally Molalla after Molalla, Oregon, it was later renamed due to the difficult pronunciation). Wikichip

Hi @trs96

I’m having some troubles trying to update 0.6.7 to 0.6.8 as I’m getting a black screen and also no verbose-boot possible. My previous (0.6.7) works just fine.

Can you check the attached EFI (serial has been removed). I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Joost

Hi @joostiphone, I've been following your progress here and on the HackinDROM App testing thread!. Are you using the App to update OC or, are you doing it manually?.

I think we need to petition that dev in the Z390/490 threads to make a Dell Optiplex version of that app.
