Hello! I’d like to report a problem with UniBeast:

Unibeast version: 12.1

Unibeast choices: Catalina 10.15.4, UEFI

USB partition scheme: 16 gb flash drive, gpt

hardware as in profile, this was a working high Sierra hack that I am adding a gigabyte windforce oc radeon 5600xt to replace the older 1070 and am doing a clean install. For this troubleshooting I’m using a single 2560x1440 monitor connected via DisplayPort and have tried different ports on the card.

Error message: after the verbose boot, I get a black screen. Everything seems functional because the system will sleep and wake while in this state. Just the graphics are hosed.

contents of unibeast.log and install.log: Considering that I never get into the installer, is there still a log that I can provide for you that is useful? I viewed the hidden folders on the usb stick and looked around but can't find any. If you can help me get to the logs I am happy to upload them, thanks!

i see that Navi cards normally need the agpdmod=pikera boot argument. Does this need to be added when installing from unibeast too?

thanks,

gerry
