I apologies for the broadcast message but i have decided to reinstall my Hackintosh machine using Catalina 10.15.6 and .... I'm stuck at "PCI configuration begin"..
My configuration is:
Asus X99 Deluxe
Core i7 5960x
32 Gb memory
Knowing that my graphic card would not be fully recognised in Catalina i have also tried to install High Sierra but I managed to get exactly to the same point and i have therefore decided to give another try to Catalina and .... I'm still stuck.
(FYI I had managed to install 10.8 on my machine a while ago but a few things have changed since then and I may be missing a trick).
In a nutshell I believe my issue is linked to this message that i'm getting:
Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourcesMatch</key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict>
I tried all options (with/without flags and with/without kext) but i think that my issue is between my DSDT, SSDT and config.plist files.
Any help would be much appreciated!
I have attached my EFI folder and the print screen with the error message.
I have had some usability issues in the past with my hackintosh so I installed Mojave for the second time but it keeps producing the same exact problem. Most of the time the system stutters and lags after login. The app icons just bounce if I want to open them and even if it does it takes forever. Another thing I picked up on is that it seems like there's no internet access whenever this occurs. The problem ceases after like 2-3 restarts and everything is back to normal.
What could cause an issue like this? I had the same thing happening with my previous install but I thought that was because of unnecessary kexts I left in the EFI. I only have the bare minimum required this time so I'm kinda lost.
I'm an happy user of a x99 built hackintosch since 6/7 years using it mainly for photoshop and fcpx ... Using new camera with better resolution and video in ProResRaw , my built start to struggle a bit
I'm thinking of making a new built and seeking for advices for this new built that I want evolutive and last at least as long as my previous built
I'll use a SSD M2 forth Generation so I need at least 2 to 3 SSD M2 PCI x4 slots
then which proc to use , I was thinking about the AMD Ryzen 9 3900xt or the Intel I9 10900k ( don't have the money for AMD threadripper ) if you have better idea I'm really open to it as long as you explain it to me
then which chipset should I use:
for Intel , should I go to Z490 or X299 or W480
For AMD , I think I have only the choice of X570
I always used Gigabyte motherboard so it will be naturally my first choice but again I'm open to any suggestion
I need at least usb 3,1 Gen 2 and TB3 is not necessary but an option and can be add later on with a PCI Card I think
So I'll be pleased o read your opinion and the choices that you'll do for the purpose of this built
thanks in advance
