After looking at some M1 benchmarks on low end Mac's, I think we are nearing the end of the line for Hackintoshes.

The 13" MacBook Pro is even beating the $4,000 MacBook Pro 16" with 8 cores in many benchmarks, including x86 JIT translated apps that are not for ARM running via Rosetta 2.

A Mx (whatever they will call it) Mac Pro or an iMac is going to kill Intel on-sight.

This is actually really embarrassing for Intel, if I were them I would just quit the industry.

I'm actually looking forward to a redesigned iMac (which most likely will look like an XDR display chassis)
I totally agree mate, it's not just the power vs Intel's (Zen 3 are pretty good), it's tha capability at 10W TDP!! put the architecture at 50W TDP (still very low for desktops) and imagine what's possible. It's also worth considering all the harware/software optimization they can deliver (think about the Afterburner card). I'd have already switched to an M1 mac mini if it had at least 2 thunderbolt controllers on 4 port like the older, but they will introduce an M1X space gray mac mini and iMac in 2021 and that's the right time for a lot of us to dump hacks.

I followed every single step of Dortania Guide , and repeated this several times ... however no luck. Still the installer shows progress of 15min and stuck on this for hours.
Any help would be much appreciated, please.

Hi! As per the logs seems that macos is having issues to mount a ntfs partition/disk. Try to boot in Windows and do a disk scan/chkdsk on it.

Cheers.

I finally got around to try another Big Sur install onto a newly formatted APFS nvme drive... but I am still stuck at the endless rebooting with this error message: "device is write lock":( Other people have commented that "stuck" after this message is normal, but I am not stuck but kept rebooting without making any progress on the status bar -- don't think I truly finish the second reboot... Anyone else experiences the same problem? Thanks!

Hi @ol2003 - you are 100% correct. I reverted to the "base" version with the 4 ssdt and the booting of the installer is going much further.

I get the Apple logo and then the dark grey background with a mouse pointer. It is not going further than this. I don't see the menu bar at the top or the setup screen in the middle... any ideas? Could it be that my Nvme is interfering? I am not planning to install macOS on the nvme but rather a 256GB SSD.

Much appreciated!
hi, have you looked on my post #613... ?

Today, on a Big Sur/OpenCore install, I’ll try to install the Radeon 6800xt, some comparisons will be made with the Radeon VII, stay tuned !
