    OpenCore Legacy for GA-EX58-UD5

    @MacNB May I know the version of OpenCore you use? In your config you use Delete instead of Block so I guess the version is different. From my experience the attribute name can vary from version to version.

    OpenCore Legacy for GA-EX58-UD5

    @Milone Here it is. Sorry for the delay. I didn't progress much since the last update. I put it on the cloud as it is more than 10MB. I scrubbed some information like serial numbers and UUID, because I think you can use your own. Please share your progress here, 2 heads are better than 1 OpenCore 0.5.8 EFI folder https://app.box.com/s/p734usv9f7bd3f2dx42n7wkjjre5852u

    OpenCore Legacy for GA-EX58-UD5

    I think there is something wrong with the NVRAM mechanism. Besides the variables reported by hackintool or the command nvram -p , the rest that specified in config.plist never appeared. Which I think, impacted the verbose mode, because it relies on the using of NVRAM. I tried the emulated method, I know the scripts works because upon shutdown it erased the manual entries I created from nvram.plist But I still don't see the others NVRAM variables. Should they be visible too?
  4. Anyone tried this X58 with OpenCore? I am in the progress and have some issues like, cannot restart, cannot boot with verbose and iClould error. The one that I really want to fix is the restart, currently it ended with a black screen then I have to press the reset button to restart. Shutdown and wake from sleep are ok. Restart works fine in Clover without the need of a specialized kext.
  5. Hi Chris, did you manage to correct the problem with restarting macOS on OpenCore? I would like to know because I have the same issue on X58 motherboard.

    OpenCore Legacy for GA-EX58-UD5

    I rebuilt the config.plist and I am able to boot the unit. However there are some other issues, using version 0.5.8: 1. no verbose mode I have the -v in NVRAM section but still no verbose from macOS, should I set AppleDebug to YES? I doubt it because the unit is still on 10.15.0 <key>Add</key> <dict> <key>7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82</key> <dict> <key>boot-args</key> <string>-v debug=0x100 alcid=1 slide=0</string> <key>SystemAudioVolume</key> <data>Rg==</data> <key>prev-lang:kbd</key> <data>cnUtUlU6MjUy</data> </dict> <key>4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14</key> <dict> <key>UIScale</key> <data>AQ==</data> <key>DefaultBackgroundColor</key> <data>AAAAAA==</data> </dict> </dict> 2. no audio [SOLVED by defining layout-d 1 in DSDT] The kexts are loaded as verified using kextstat | grep -E "AppleHDA|AppleALC|Lilu" On another partition with Clover, I have layout-id 1 works. I have checked the device properties using gfxutil -f HDEF 00:1b.0 8086:3a3e /PCI0@0/HDEF@1B = PciRoot(0x1)/Pci(0x1B,0x0) and add it in the config <key>DeviceProperties</key> <dict> <key>Add</key> <dict> <key>PciRoot(0x1)/Pci(0x1B,0x0)</key> <dict> <key>layout-id</key> <data>AQAAAA==</data> </dict> </dict> <key>Block</key> <dict/> </dict> 3. when restarting, the unit freeze with black screen no clue 4. wakeup from sleep freeze black screen [SOLVED] 5. apple icloud error message has the least importance at this moment

    This is going to be an uphill march. Ever since I updated to the version > 0.5.3 the unit boot in panic, with the following messages:

    I didn't have the chance to continue the work on OpenCore, hence not much progress. In my setup, I think the DSDT need to be modified. The one I currently have was from Chameleon era. @Rocky12 did you manage to see the OpenCore picker/selection list at all? I will compare your config.plist with the one I have and will let you know if I have any suggestion.

    Added SMBIOS into OC config and macOS Catalina is booted. There are still a lot of things to iron out.

    I modified the config to load VBoxHfs.efi instead of HfsPlus.efi, and now I have the boot picker. The partition cannot be booted with a message saying the platform is not supported for the OS. With the log available, I am confident we can slowly grind the config to completely boot Catalina. opencore-2019-12-17-000224.txt

    OpenCore Legacy for GA-EX58-UD5

    I have a small progress, it still doesn't work for this board, but at least I can consistently generate the log. The HDD must be on the first port (SATA0), even if there is only one HDD, otherwise it wasn't loaded at all. OC ignores the boot order in BIOS. It still generate the red error texts. It seems there is something wrong when it tried to load HfsPlus.efi, as we can see from the attached log file. The rest of the log is not readable. 00:000 00:000 OC: OpenCore is now loading (Vault: 0/0, Sign 0/0)... 00:003 00:003 OC: Boot timestamp - 2019.12.16 23:40:18 00:006 00:003 OCCPU: Hypervisor: 0 00:009 00:003 OCCPU: Found Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz 00:012 00:003 OCCPU: Signature 106A5 Stepping 5 Model 1A Family 6 Type 0 ExtModel 1 ExtFamily 0 00:015 00:003 OCCPU: Detected Apple Processor Type: 07 -> 0702 00:018 00:003 OCCPU: Ratio Min 12 Max 20 Current 0 Turbo 22 21 21 21 00:021 00:003 OCCPU: Timer address is 408 from LPC 00:125 00:103 OCCPU: CPUFrequencyFromTSC 2698759881Hz 2698MHz 00:128 00:003 OCCPU: CPUFrequency 2698759881Hz 2698MHz 00:131 00:003 OCCPU: FSBFrequency 134937994Hz 134MHz 00:134 00:003 OCCPU: Pkg 1 Cores 4 Threads 8 00:137 00:003 OC: OcLoadUefiSupport... 00:140 00:003 OCC: Install console control 0 - Not Found 00:143 00:003 AIFTimerBoostInit Current timer is 100000 00:146 00:003 AIFTimerBoostInit changed period 100000 to 50000 00:149 00:003 AmiEfiKeycodeProtocol is unavailable on gST->ConsoleHandle - Unsupported 00:152 00:003 gST->ConIn DF66C390 vs found DF66C390 00:161 00:008 OCABC: Firmware has 12569745 free pages (904337 in lower 4 GB) 00:164 00:003 OCC: Configuring console ignore 0 san clear 0 clear switch 0 replace tab 0s 00:168 00:004 OCC: Configuring behaviour 1 00:171 00:003 OCC: Setting cc mode 0 -> 0 00:174 00:003 OC: Got 5 drivers 00:178 00:004 OC: Driver EmuVariable.efi at 0 is being loaded... 00:182 00:003 OC: Driver EmuVariable.efi at 0 is successfully loaded! 00:185 00:003 OC: Driver HfsPlus.efi at 1 is being loaded... opencore-2019-12-16-234018.txt

    OpenCore Legacy for GA-EX58-UD5

    Is there a way to generate a log? or verbose mode with OpenCore 0.5.3? I think I followed the guide that says the log will be created in EFI partition. During one of many reboots I saw 2 of them but they were not text file hence cannot be read using a text editor, I used Visual Studio Code app in this case. So I deleted them. But now I don't see new logs created.

    OpenCore Legacy for GA-EX58-UD5

    Rockey12, Thanks for sharing your research. I did execute BootInstall.command. At this moment, I think OC BOOTx64.efi is not compatible with my rig or GA-EX58-UD5 in general. Following dgsga idea to install Clover first, I did the following: 1. installed Clover 5094 on the partition and choose Clover for BIOS (legacy) booting 2. Deleted /EFI/BOOT and /EFI/CLOVER 3. Copied OpenCore's BOOT and OC folder into /EFI 4. After rebooting, I was able to see the blue white menu thingy, then I navigated and selected to /EFI/BOOT/BOOTx64.efi 5. The texts in red colour that starts with "X64 Exception T´╗┐ype" is displayed 6. Tried selecting /EFI/OC/OpenCore.efi and got the same error

    It seems there are no topic for GA-EX58-UD5 board, so I started one here. I had followed the guide to install OpenCore on legacy system, a GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard with macOS Catalina in this case. However it cannot load the OS and shows some texts in red colour that starts with X64 Exception Type. If there is another partition with Clover, it falls back to that partition and load the OS. I attached the config.plist I use, based on OpenCore-0.5.3-RELEASE. Any ideas what is missing? config.plist
