    Hi there,


    I'm trying to get my Z77 (Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H) board up and running on my first go at OpenCore. I took a look at your config and noticed you don't have your DSDT.aml file enabled, nor many of the SSDTs. I'm curious why you don't use them and how you determine which ones you need? Thanks

    Usually OpenCore did not require these *.aml.

    I tested it one by one.

    I have a gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H.  i7-3770K  using HD4000. 
    If I use the right Kexts, how close is your config.plist?





    It should work without major problem I guess.

    Please try my config.plist and show what you got if any problem occurred.

    AppleHPET Probe Fix.
    Upon boot AppleHPET.kext will fail to load with error AppleHPET::Probe() failed.! on 15h_16h systems.
    To prevent this i made a kext patch to use with clover or opencore.

    Kext To Patch :

    Name: com.apple.driver.AppleHPET
    Find: 01000084 C0
    Replace: 010000B0 01
    Comment:  XLNC - AppleHPET Probe Fix.


    Thanks for this patch.

    Since 10.15.2 was released, when will AMD vanilla kernel patch for 10.15.2 (Clover) be released ?

    At present only OpenCore works.

    Hi jsl2000,


    I tried to create a legacy Catalina Installation USB, for GA-EX58-UD5

    But got a fullscreen of the text started with:

    X64 Exception Type ....


    From what you mentioned, does it mean it cannot be done?


    According to my experience Legacy bootloader of OpenCore only worked with HDD/SSD instead of USB flash.

    Even I am using the ASUS Z97 - Similar one to yours - But OpenCore loads to a black screen for me


    Can you confirm if OC works for you in that setup too?


    Please show your hardware signature if yours is compatible to mine, I can provide my config.plist for your reference.

    I can 100%confirm open core any kext patch not work.I test X99 and X299

    If any one work please confirm.

    Kernel ->patch->Kexts patch

    I also had the same conclusion: in my AMD FX-6300 hackintosh booted by OpenCore legacy 0.5.0 kernel patch worked, but kexts patch not worked. It was said OpenCore 0.5.3 had fixed it. Can you test and confirm it because I am not sure whether OC 0.5.3 working in AMD hackintosh or not.

    Hello jsl2000,

    thankyou for your Answer, but there is one big Question open.

    What is about the "SSDT*.aml"?


    Where do I get this/these Files or how do I creat this/these Files?

    Where do I get the Infomation for the Entries of this/these Files?


    Regards, maclinux

    Follow the guide and get those SSDT*.aml from SSDT*.dsl by MaciASL

    Hello jsl2000,


    I have an ASUS legacy MOBO and have problems to set up OpenCore 0.5.2 .

    Please write me exactly howto setup a USB Stick an a Mac.


    I have Catalina 10.15.0 running with Clover Version 5096.

    Your config.plist is a great help, but much more is important, how you

    did the setup.


    Do I first must make the Bootfile with "BootInstall.command", before

    copy the EFI Folder from the "OpenCore-0.5.2-RELEASE" Folder?


    Please help me.


    Greetings from Germany, maclinux1960



    CPU:     AMD FX 4300

    GPU:    Nvidia gt710 2GB

    Mobo:  ASUS M5a78L-M LX

    1. Run sudo BootInstall.command (select HDD partition instead of USB to create Legacy EFI partition)

    2. For AMD FX-xxxx hackintoshs use OpenCore 0.5.0 and my config.plist as the baseline structure

    3. Following my config.plist copy the related SSDT*.aml, xxxxxx.efi & xxxxxx.kext to ACPI, Drivers, & Kexts folders in your /EFI/OC/

    Hi My Friend

    Your EFI OpenCore, Work like charm on my computer

    X399 Gigabyte, amd ryzen threadripper 1950x, RX 560


    A Lot Of Thanks



    I am glad to know that because I have spent many hours to learn OpenCore before it worked in my hackintosh. Once it worked it can be applied to the other ones very quickly.

    for AMD Ryzen 9 3900x with  Asus TUF 5700 XT  

    Unfortunately this patch did not work by Clover r.5097 at 10.15.1 in my Ryzen 1700X hackintosh. Only OpenCore 0.5.0's kernel patch worked for me.

    There are many links for you
    Which one do you recommend?



    You may try my EFI of OpenCore 0.5.0 which worked perfectly at 10.13.6/10.14.x/10.15.x in my Ryzen 1700X hackintosh.

    Just modify those are specific for your X399 and different from mine.

    This is the correct way to add Mask ? XLNC your patch always works. Please update patch 10.15.1 


                    <string>xlnc - cpuid_set_info - jmp to calculations and set cpuid_cores_per_package</string>

    Is it for Ryzen or FX CPUs ?

    Thanks for your prompt reply and help.

    I'll test it ASAP.

    Hi, n.d.k.:

    After editing of your config.plist my Z77 hackintosh can login to desktop now.

    However, only AMD R9 290X dGPU display properly. The internal HD 4000 display abnormally.

    Did you get your HD 4000 display properly ?

    By any chance, you have your Misc->Boot->UsePicker turn off?

    Hi, n.d.k.:

    How to set correct CPU frequency and FSB frequency for AMD FX-6300 CPU in OpenCore ? Is it set by Kernel -> Patch provide by Algrey ? Because used it I got too high setting in my FX-6300 hackintosh, but completely normal in Ryzen 1700X hackintosh by respective patches at OC 0.5.0.


    Following Shaneee's advice I can get correct CPU frequency now.

    I am using my own DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml and don't use any ACPI patches from OC

    You need to change the 3 private fields below to match your system:





    Here's my error free config.plist for my signature system.


    Thanks for your prompt reply and help.

    I'll test it ASAP.

    According to your logic, i should put every app in my computer on the Dock, I am not sure if it's even possible...:)

    It seems OpenCore 0.5.2 worked for your hackintosh. Would you share your config.plist for me because I always got reboot or freeze before login desktop in my Z77 hackintosh, but no problem booted by Clover.

    What is the boot file? It is compiled specially for OC or just copy from Clover?

    It was built by boot install.command advised by OC guide:


    No any error during its execution of this terminal command.

    Could it be only applicable to HDD/SSD only ?

    I'm applied this in an USB.


    1. It actually applied to HDD/SSD only, invalid for USB.

    2. Unable to reboot

    Thanks for Heckintosh Slav's advice which solved this reboot issue .

    3. Poor audio quality from HDMI of RX-560

    Following Shaneee's advice I can get correct CPU frequency now.

    Please check my config.plist for those who need Legacy Boot of FX-6300 or FX-8xxx hackintoshs.
