    OpenCore Discussion

    @ellybz, and anyone else who is trying to build a custom menu on OpenCore: i have two problems. The first is I can't boot Linux. This is my path, and its identical to the path in Clover (except for the slashes reversed) and in Clover it works, but in OC, it goes off into space and does not load. You can see my attached jpg from the Clover boot screen below. Is it possible this is a video display issue? PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x17,0x0)/Sata(0x3,0xFFFF,0x0)/HD(1,GPT,F23633BD-5766-4C50-9EC6-5D24425B8542,0x800,0x100000)/\EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi The second problem is more basic. I am loading a scan policy identical to yours, @Ellybz: 2689795. But below you can see what I get after adding my Entries, 4-7 work just fine, btw. I tried it with Hide Self on and Hide Self off. Any thoughts? Would use picker make a difference?

    WhatEverGreen Support Topic

    Okay, I thought some of you on this thread would like to know..... WhatEverGreen 1.33 is not compatible with Catalina 10.15.1 beta 2. When you boot, you get a black screen. Remove Whatevergreen, and the system boots. I am on an X299 with a 7980xe CPU and a Radeon VII. Any updates happening soon?
  3. Just corrected my path - somehow I left out some characters in the path.....I also had the same issue that Thierus had with the Mac OUI.....but it got resolved.....
  4. @d5aqoep Can you assist? I tried to follow your guide to re-program my Asus 10GbE card, and when I did, I got the following (my FW_File listed below): C:\Users\meaganmargaret\Desktop\aquantia_firmware\AQUANTIA\AMD64>diag --password XXXXXX --aqc C:\Users\meaganmargaret\Desktop\aquantia_firmware\AQC107-Config.aqc Unsupported option --aqc Exiting program...

  5. It was enabled and set to true just for testing. I disabled it to make sure the system booted properly, and I will enable it again but only for testing. When I have a better idea or a solution I will enable it once again.
  6. @Mieze So, have you or anyone, experimented with OpenCore? I have tried to move your patch (for the Asus XG-C100C) from Clover to OC and no success yet..... I tried putting it in Kernel -> Patch (see below), but it did not work.

    OpenCore Configurator

    I think both guides are terrific, but in your outline of motherboards, I don't see any skylake x boards....I have an interest because I have a skylake x board and system....

    OpenCore Discussion

    Understandable.....here you go.......also, the AML that initiates the wireless/BT card is: SSDT-X299-ARPT.aml OC_EFI.zip EDIT: But do other folks have BT working? Pavo, do you?

    Bluetooth Problems.... Can't get bluetooth to work on Opencore. Same system, if booted with Clover, Bluetooth works and works well. I boot OC from a USB drive, and it works and works well, but...... System Info: X299 Asus Prime Deluxe with two SSDs installed. One is Mojave, and one is Catalina. Same result whether booting to Mojave or Catalina. On Clover, BT works. On OC, BT doesn't. No special kexts are loaded for BT on either installation, only an AML for the BCM94360CD wireless/BT combo card. Does anyone know of any issues with BT on OC? Is BT on OC working for others?

    Clover General discussion

    To @vector sigma You presented a utility as something it was not. You pushed me and many others to try it. You claim you didn't know what it was. I don't believe you. It's despicable what you did. I did try it and I encouraged others to try it, only to find out what it really was, and I'm sorry I did. I have now had to make many apologies and corrections to others on other boards and forums because of your behavior. And, it is extremely disrespectful to the author, Nick Woodhams, who is a decent guy who I've communicated with about what you've done, to have his work so misrepresented. And, to those who also pushed me and others to try this "new' utility, you are complicit in this behavior. In particular I mean you: @ricoc90 Obviously, no one on this board can be trusted and none of posts here can be trusted either.

    Then shouldn't you rename to what it actually is? (osxaptiofix2drv-free2000)?

    Of course, given that most new Bios upgrades these days are almost always security upgrades, delaying those are almost suicide.....

    Clover General discussion

    Well, you kind of made my point....no one knows for sure how long AMF will work - anything, any new "something", such as a bios upgrade could cause it to fail. Without constant updating, AMF is doomed to fail, sometime. More to the point, the next time it fails, it's dead. As for what you said about Apple blocking something.....our only defense against that is the constant intentional development of new utilities.....

    Clover General discussion

    Yes, I tried it and it worked. I haven't done a full test yet, and the system only booted and I want to see if it is as stable as it was with AMF. At any rate, Thank you. Do you know if Clover intends to include in their distributions in the future?
