  1. Now I'm using 1 HDMI and 1 DP. Also yes, sound is working on both.
  2. A really good motherboard with macOS compatible bult-in Wifi & Bluetooth ASUS Z170-Deluxe (with Wifi) BIOS: v3801 CPU: i7-6700K 4.0 to 4.2 GHz (w/o OC) RAM: 1x 16 GB Corsair DDR4 2400 MHz GPU: Intel HD 530 (Headless) & ASUS Radeon RX 5700 OC 8 GB Audio: ALC 1150 Ethernet: I219V2, I211-AT WiFi & Bluetooth: Broadcom BCM94360HMB Half-Mini-PCI-E More Specs: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-DELUXE/specifications/ Catalina 10.15.3 - Windows 10 What is working: BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) No problem so far ASUS HyperKit with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB What is not working: - Not tested: VideoProc says that Hardware Decoding\Encoding is fully supported and enabled on both HD 530 and RX 5700 but I didn't test it Thunderbolt (no equipment) Issues: None BIOS Settings: Boot\CSM (Compatibility Support Module): Launch CSM: Disabled Boot\Secure Boot: OS type: Other OS Secure Boot State: Disabled Advanced\System agent (sa) Configuration: VT-d: Enabled Graphics Configuration: Primary Display: Auto iGPU Multi-monitor: Enabled RC6(Render Standby): Enabled DVMT Pre-Allocated: 128M Advanced\PCH Storage Configuration: SATA Mode Selection: AHCI HyperKit: Enable (if you have NVMe SSD with ASUS HyperKit) Advanced\CPU Configuration: Intel Virtualization Technology: Enabled CPU- Power Management Control: Intel SpeedStep: Enabled CPU- C-States: Enabled Intel SpeedShift: Enabled Getting ready for installation: Download the bootpack (Clover v5098): Click here -> ASUS-Z170_catalina.zip Installation: Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue Post Installation: Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself Some pictures: Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive): Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac) Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition). IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc): Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB) Mounting EFI from Windows: Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Notes: 2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing 2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list 2020.01.12: Tested system with OC, added more informations to BIOS settings 2020.01.11: Added SmallTreeIntel82576.kext for 2nd Ethernet, Tested Ethernet ports 2020.01.11: First upload
  3. This post is very outdated. For the best support go to the osxlatitude link. I didn't use any kexts for that, it's just worked oob. I didn't do any reliability tests with it so I don't know what about that. Handoff is not working with that, just basic things like audio sharing.
  4. Good for you! I did that too as I mentioned in the #3 post but that didn't helped. Also I have no issues with sleep, my clover is in the debug.zips. Most likely not the layout-id is the problem as I had every port working with layout-id 1 and it's also happening on USB headset that doesn't require AppleALC or AppleHDA.
  5. Yeah I did load the optimised defaults, but the issue was still there. I had i7-3770 so I couldn't OC it anyway, so I left CPU settings at default values. So sad...
  6. Oh yes. I wish I could revert back to Mojave. 0 issues there. But with RX 5700 it's impossible. Unfortunately I can't do any tests and reports from now on because I just got an i7-6700k Skylake rig and I am selling my old Ivy rig. I really tried everything. As @holyfield said it's maybe because of a hardware misconfiguration but in BIOS everything was configured correctly and I went through every page and every options to make sure everything is set correctly. Fun thing is that there was 0 issues from Sierra to Mojave, Linux and Windows, was even good on Catalina 10.15 but not on 10.15.1< One thing I didn't tried is moving from Clover to OpenCore. Maybe you can try and report back for everyone who also having this problem and looking for a solution in the future. Other than that I am really out of ideas.
  7. I used mac with Windows 10 and Linux (Manjaro) Dual-boot. no issues there.

    Can’t get Sidecar to work properly

    I think this is exactly the problem. You might have a compatible AirPort card with wifi+bluetooth for this (for example BCM94352Z, or BCM94360HMB) OSXLatitude has a good list of supported cards: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/2120-inventory-of-supportedunsupported-wireless-cards-1-snow-leopard-el-capitan/ (unfortunately the site is down now)
  9. Is it good before sleep? What motherboard do you have? If it's only happening after sleep then you might need CodecCommander.kext.
  10. So I tried different things to make it work without success. - Created a DSDT for my motherboard - Created an SSDT for my CPU - Removed unnecessary lines/kextpatches from my config.plist - Messed with my BIOS to see if it'll change anything: Disabled HPET result in random restarts (also didn't make any difference in audio) Made sure everything is set to default value in CPU settings Verified other settings such as EHCI, RAM values, etc. But nothing helped. Now I'm really hopeless and I don't know what to do next. Distortions on my output ports (HDMI, DP, Rear Green) and Bluetooth are happening slightly less, but on my USB headphone it's just very-very unstable and bad. Here is my new debug.zip. Hope anyone could help me out. The config_bak.plist is the older config I used. EDIT: Also tried disabling PluginType, and different SMBIOS (iMacPro1,1, iMac13,3) but same. EDIT2: Tried VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC -> nothing, Updated Clover to latest (5101) -> nothing, Tried disabling C1E state and C3-6 State -> nothing, Disabled Hyper Threading -> nothing. Now I am really hopeless.. I've tried everything that I could. I really hope a system update will solve this... Because on 10.14.6 Mojave there is no problem, maybe it's a bug. debug_27173.zip
  11. Hi! I recently updated my hack to 10.15.2 from 10.15 and I started having issues with audio (same on 10.15.1). Every time I start a sound for ex. Youtube or in Music app, there are crackling/popping sounds when playing and browsing in Finder, Safari, etc. Happening on rear Green port, 1 HDMI & 1 Display port, Bluetooth speakers, even on my USB Headset. It's very-very frustrating... Tried to replace AppleALC with VoodoHDA but nothing changed. Also tried different layout-id but same. My specs: GIGABYTE Z77P-D3 (UEFI, CSM: OFF, Integrated Graphics ON (headless connection for IntelQuickSync)) i7-3770 3.4 GHz (Ivy Bridge, HD 4000) Radeon RX 5700 - Connected two 1080p Monitor (1st with DP to HDMI, 2nd with HDMI to VGA) Audio: ALC888B - now it's layout-id=3 but tried 1 too Please help me fix this. This is the very last issue on my hack. Attaching a debug.zip. debug_19312.zip

I bought a BCM94360 card with a PCI-E adapter, it's OOB. Currently waiting for arrive, will report back. Issues Sometimes I hear crackling sound (just on Catalina 10.15.1, didn't happen on 10.15 or before) If you don't have this issue please let me know. Before updating to newer versions, update your kexts! (and Clover if necessary) Generate a new serial with Clover Configurator Download the Clover folder: Z77P-D3-catalina.zip - SMBIOS: iMac13,2: iMac (27-inch, Late 2012) - ig-platform-id: 0x0166000b - There is no need for Whatevergreen.kext - The HD 4000 is working with- or without a graphics card (headless with IntelQuickSync) - RX 5700 (ASUS RX 5700 GAMING OC 8 G) working OOB, just delete WhateverGreen.kext (causes black screen) Triple-Boot Win 10 and Linux (in my case it's Manjaro) (on one drive) Make sure your drive is in GPT and you're using UEFI If you have Win 10 installed then: Open diskmgmt (Disk Management), then Shrink your existing Win 10 partition to create two new for Mac and (if you want) for Linux If you have Mac installed: Create a new partition for Linux and (or) Windows in FAT Simply format that partition in Linux, Windows, or Mac installer, then install the OS Copy your working Clover folder to the system's EFI drive If it's automatically booting to Win, open cmd in administrator and write: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi That's it, automatically booting to Clover and you can select your OS If your Linux doesn't show up in Clover make sure you have GUI/Scan/Linux=Yes in config.plist Mount your EFI on Windows: Open CMD in administrator and write: mountvol b: /s Use Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator to manage the folder Pictures:

    Black Screen with Gigabyte Radeon RX 560

    Use DisplayPort for installation
  14. Yes, I did apply them but didn't work unfortunately.
  15. If you are on High Sierra >=10.13.3 then you must use Inject EDID to fix black screen issue. Guide here: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/10236-how-to-fix-black-screen-in-high-sierra/ on 10.13.4 and higher this issue has been fixed. Also patch AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy with clover: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/316573-sierra-applegraphicsdevicepolicy-clover-patch/ If you have the same notebook as I have then check out my guide, I fixed everything: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11355-acer-aspire-v-15-v5-591g-mojave-windows-10/
