    @PG7 @MICKHAEL and other who did the same : fixing kext loading problem by putting some kext in plugins directory of other kext must be a temporary solution. We can fix that in Clover, I'm sure, even if we hard code for the time being. Please, do not share over the internet your modified kext, because if you do, we'll start to have problem with people getting kexts without knowing there is unrelated plugins. So again do not share zip of these kext. Instead, let's fix that. The problem is that I asked more than one time to send us the needed order and I got response like "I put them in plugins so that's fine". Sorry to be ranting here, but NO, that's not fine as a solution. It's fine as a workaround. Please, people who got this problem : open an issue on github, let's fix this and go back to original version of your kexts. Why am I saying this : Do you realize how much time is taken by trying to help people ? All this time is less development time. And if we start having kext with random plugins inside, I'll have a lot of people sending me their debug.log... So please...

    Could you remove all kext from plugins folder, and check the problem in your debug.log as I explained ? Because I don't know which one is failing to load. If you didn't have to trick Clover by putting kext inside an other kext, you are not concerned. "FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext" is a codeless kext, does order still matter ? Not a joke. The ocean is 28 degres Celsius here...

    Hello everyone. I apologize in advance for saying such a big deal. Let's treat Jief with more respect and admiration. Jief sees all the details of our movements regarding detailed settings and so on. And Jief is very familiar with Clover and is an indispensable person for us. I think there are many things to watch out for. First of all, it is very important to use strict English. It just feels harsh, but it's not. Science has rigorous logical English. Jief wants it. Therefore, do not understand it in your own way, listen to ambiguous words again, and then execute them correctly. In fact, this saves us from spending a lot of time solving each other's problems. This is because false assumptions should be eliminated most. You can use simple English repeatedly for the test environment and execution environment, so be sure to tell them logically. The important thing here is that the test should change only one of the conditions. Jief uses more effort and thought than we think to isolate the reason. And they will take appropriate measures. About the execution environment Jief generously sent us a solution entitled "How to be helped by me." This also shows how important it is to match each other's environment in the test. What should be strictly excluded must be excluded. Not just tough, Jief is willing to help generously. The abuse of kext I just mentioned is exactly what Jief says. Jief will kindly help him when the Kext is used by someone. Jief generously cuts development time out of his life. Don't waste his time. It is a summary of everything I wrote above. Jief takes the time for us, even if it turns out to be useless. We can't help but respect and admire such Jief. Also, when we advise Jief, we must not forget that Jief is doing everything well for everyone in this way. It's wrong to give Jief an opinion on a trivial matter. As mentioned above, Jief thinks about us, so it's natural to feel that Jief has been criticized. In this way, Jief is cutting his time and solving the problems of other people's Clover. So we have to understand how important Jief's time is. So far, no one else thinks of Clover as our problem, except Jief. We must respect and admiration Jief! I think so. I apologize for my strange English. Thank you very much.

    you're right, in fact it's more correct to say: identified recovery big sur, but still not bootable

    The Clover doesn't bother if you have x79, x89, x109 or any other chipset. It is your affair to apply needed patches and Clover gives you powerful instruments to do this.

    The path is open : Hackintosh ARM

    I've got an old Acorn Archimedes A310 if anyone wants to have fun... Failing that, if anyone wants to look at Huawei's promising ARM-based desktop: https://www.slashgear.com/huaweis-arm-based-desktop-pc-could-leave-you-scratching-your-head-06627865/

    you have to adapt your system if you want to use Clover again, which still supports all platforms. See Clover quirks I have signed or here https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/345789-guide-how-to-update-clover-for-bigsur-compatibility-using-openruntime-and-quirks-v5123/?

    I quote myself because when I wrote, I did not think it would be true. So the culprit of the bug with a black screen and a horizontal cursor and POST code 97 is the USB controller Asmedia ASM2142! Solution found on Germany Hackintosh forum https://www.hackintosh-forum.de/forum/thread/51193-x299-error-97-big-sur/?pageNo=1 Thank you @apfelnico Thank you All.

    Definitely no : that's lazy solution. The order of kexts can be deduced from their info.plist. We will implement that soon. In the meantime, we have hardcoded the order. So if you tell me this kext must load before this one, we can do that with one line of code. That way, everyone keeps clean kext. Sorry, I can't follow everything, too much messages on this forum. So I don't know what is "prcmelo‘s solution" to a problem I don't know either. If it's cosmetic, I'm out : too busy with Clover core.

    @rramon Thank you for your approach to the subject. You have to do with Chris, who is the initiator of the Backups folder customization proposal. I think @Slice and @Jief_Machak are very busy making improvements to Clover that will benefit all users.

    If I can contribute I would like to send my idea using a folder from Big Sur as a base. If somebody like my idea I can send it, just let me know how

    HI ALL @ The one I just created really looks like a native Apple folder; I could easily make it part of the Clover Backup folder; what do you think do you agree? Are there any disagreements I would like to have everyone's opinion thank you

    @naiclub, @iCanaro. Someone shared with me the attached kext that if loaded solves the Big Sur issue with the ASMedia 2142 based USB 3.1 controller. It was tested in a X299 build and in mine and it worked in the sense that the USB 3.1 drive I connect is recognized. Thanks a lot to all for the efforts and time spent trying to help me with this.

    Mine came yesterday, I have a MacMini too and it’s not half bad. Ive also done a 5900x hack build and absolutely love it, it blows my 9900k out of the water and everything I use in macOS works on the ryzentosh. getting back to the M1 MacMini......Audio Daws and plugins is a mixed bag on the macmini, anything Logic Pro related is up there with the best Ive seen performance wise but wander into 3rd party daws like Ableton or Cubase and it all goes abit down hill. this could be down to the 3rd party apps not being optimised for the silicon and running via Rosetta. Overall depending on how you use the little thing it’s a real winner. enough to make me consider turning my beast of a Ryzen build into a windows and Linux only machine and getting a nice 3080 or 6800xt for it and using the macmini for macos. for under a grand you can really go wrong.
