    OpenCore Discussion

    I have narrowed it down to something in 10.15 boot.efi does weird things with open core. I have a working OpenCore setup on the same machine(USB) using OC .3 and it boots into 10.14.6 installer just fine, but the same install if I have it boot into 10.15 gives the Error messages about not allocation runtime area. also when trying to get into the 10.14 installer with current fresh compiled OC it fails in preboot. I have tried many different EFI folders, but none (even the one I was using) seem to be able to get boot.EFI to fire off. UEFI Shell works, lets me explore the drives, but I launch Boot.efi and it Panics. HBP Attached, Error messages from OC .3 that mirror messages from .5.1+ TLDR:: I can get OC .3 to boot 10.14.6 installer, but will not boot 10.15 anything. I can not get OC .5.1+ to boot any OS, even 10.14.6 installer. System is the Z390 DESIGNARE.

    got the bright idea to try every boot option (I have 5) and what I can see is that recovery mode on 10.14.6 and 10.15 do nothing, while normal mode gives me this Error (see attached). I have gone into the EFI Shell and tried to launch boot.efi manually and it appears that it is not patching/debugging on boot. no luck, it might be I am tired, will try it again in the morning hbp

    ok, I am at a loss, I have poured over the configuration documents many times and still can't get my system to boot.I got OC .3 to boot mostly, but that was using AptioMemoryFix which is now been absorbed into OC and other functions. the page in the documents that discuss how to get it working are extremely vague and simply point out what appears to be unrelated Quirks that if you search the documentation on don't say if they need to be on or off. Attached are 2 files, 1 my freshly compiled .5.1 OC folder with a config.plist that I know will not boot, because it gives me the dreaded (ERROR allocating 0x##### pages at 0x000000000######## alloc Type 2, Couldn't allocate runtime area) or worse just fails to do anything after making a selection one a Clover config file that will boot the system correctly. Can someone please help, or point me in the direction that will allow me to resolve the issues? TLDR: My OC files will boot .3, but when I try to move onto any that don't use AptioMemoryFix I can't get the system to boot, looking for help. Attached are the OC EFI (not working) and a working Clover config for my system. System in Question is the Z390 DESIGNARE HBP clover_config.plist EFI.zip
  5. On Thursday the 8th, a very fast moving fire destroyed everything in my life except my wife and Kittys. we just got me a laptop, but my question is: if you were in my position, what would you do or say? would you rebuild your hack or would you update it to another machine? would you upgrade, or use your insurance money to get a real Mac? I am still in shock and am not asking for anything except your advice and support during this very trying time. HBP information on the Camp Fire in Paradise California
  6. found a solution!!! unlox.it $3.99 and you can have that functionality.
  7. ok, I have this wonderful system from my sig, and I have to know has anyone managed to get any 3rd party thumbprint/fingerprint readers to work natively for sign on with osx Mojave? HBP
  8. Ok, so the story goes, I upgraded from a z77x board to a Z270 which has USB 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1. When I use a usb 3.1 to usb adaptor cable and plug into the the usb 3.0/3.1 port I get usb 3.1 speeds. When I plug it into the usb 3.1 port (the new mini interface) I only get 480 Mb/sec. What am I doing wrong? Send me 1 is the usb converter cable, Send me 2 is the USB 3.1 cable. I am trying to identify what is changing when I use the conversion cable too connect I get 5g/s speed vs 480m/s. so how does the cable make the connection different? trying to understand. HBP Send me 1.zip Send me 2.zip

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    move the Wifi/BT card off the M.2 shared slot (what you have explained is that your system is sharing resources with the first Pcie slot and the NVME slot) move the card to slot 3 or 4 (the last PCIE slot) should fix the read/write speeds. I get 1855MB/s write, 2450MB/s read with an Evo 960.
  10. tried imac18,2 and imac18,3. which are the ones that say they had 560 2m or 4m cards. and my CPU is on the 18,3. I have not researched the differences between the rx 560 and 555 PRO or 560 PRO.
  11. set that way (having made sure that I only have current versions of LiLu and WEG) the only working function is jpg preview, and airplay. no local playback of secure video. but if I disable the IGPU I have local playback but not airplay/jpg preview. with IGPU enabled in bios, I get Preview and jpgs, and sharing to my AppleTV with IGPU disabled in bios, I get secure video, iTunes video, and no sharing with my AppleTV
  12. IGPU enabled, with weg, and intel fixup, if I add inject ig-platform-id =0x19120001 then I get movies and secure video, no jpeg preview if I use ig-platform-id =0x59120003 the right selection for my system, (an iMac18,3) then I get preview and no movies. so I am yet again having to choose between features I normally use, and features I use when I am relaxing. HBP
  13. I discovered by accident that in the newer OS's on High Sierra, Mojave etc I could get iTunes to allow streaming movies, then I discovered that if I implemented the Fix for jpg preview fix, I lose the iTunes streaming abilities. is there any method to remove this and get both?? I have a z270 ultra gaming with an i7 7700K and a RX560 4g card. the rest is inconsequential if I can't get both to work HBP
