I have installed MacOS and Windows on the following hardware:
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
MSI B450M Mortar Max
Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 5600 XT 6G
Samsung 860 QVO, 1 TB SSD (PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x3)/Pci(0x0,0x1)/Sata(0x5,0xFFFF,0x0)) - MacOS on this disk
Kingston A2000 SSD 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe (PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x1)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/NVMe(0x1,15-AD-CD-26-28-B7-26-00)) - Windows on this disk
both disks GPT
Both OSs boot nicely and work as a charm when selecting either of the disks as boot disks in the BIOS.
However, trying to boot Windows 10 from the Opencore Bootmanager (no matter whether PickerMode=internal or OpenCanopy) causes a Windows Blue Screen ("SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED").
To be on the safe side, I have added an appropriate entry to Misc->Entries:
<string>Not signed for security reasons</string>
It points to the Windows 10 bootmanager on the Windows disk's EFI partition.
What's wrong with that? Why does this cause a BSOD? It is not clear to me why it works when booting from BIOS but not here.
config.plist attached (but maybe it has no relevance for the problem).
My PC is a Dell Optiplex 790
I am installing Catalina then hopefully upgrading to Big Sur
Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz (sandy bridge?)
16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 730
I have been following the guide at https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/installer-guide/mac-install.html
Currently I’m on step “Gathering files” I’m not to sure which SSDTs I should use for my system to work properly.
Also this will be dual booting with Windows 10 Pro
So I'm new to OpenCore, I've been a Clover user for too long but it's finally totally failed me after a motherboard upgrade, I couldn't boot to Mac OS.
So I gave OpenCore a go using the basic config and boom, booted first time! I'm an instant convert!
The main problem I have is that I have a triple boot machine with Windows 10, Ubuntu and Mac OS on three separate drives. With OpenCore I can ONLY boot Mac OS. It gives me an option of "BOOTCAMP Windows" but if I select it it boots to the Ubuntu GRUB menu (??) and then won't load the linux kernel! There is no option that tries to boot Windows.
It looks like multi-OS support is not a priority right now, is this correct? Is there anything I can do to help test/code/progress this aspect of the project?
I used this command: diskutil info disk0s2 | grep -i "Partition UUID" | rev | cut -d' ' -f 1 | rev
But I accidentally removed the wrong disk and now my main windows drive is not appearing in the bootloader. I can't figure out how to get it back. I tried resetting my windows drive, but I kept getting an error. I also reset my mac and reinstalled Catalina.
I'm a newbie to the concept of installing a Mac OS on alternative hardware. Please bear with me
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad x250 with 5th generation i7-5600U CPU, 16GB RAM, and Intel HD Graphics 5500. (I'd be glad to add any additional hardware details if needed)
My goal is to have a dual boot machine - Mojave and Win 10. I have two separated physical drives.
I've tried different methods, but none was stable to be operable.
If anyone of you has the experience with this specific model it will be really great to hear your opinion.
