I am really at my wits end here. I am hoping someone on here with more experience with UEFI and boot loaders might be able to provide insight into an otherwise inexplicable problem I am having with a brand-new system built around the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-PLUS. My gut tells me the problem is somehow related to UEFI settings, Secure boot, or some combination, but I really have no idea if that is the case.
The problem is two-fold. First, my system will only boot to a device (e.g., USB stick) under two conditions: 1) no SATA drive is plugged in or 2) when a specific SSD is plugged in (I'll refer to this as SSD1). I have three other hard drives that otherwise work (I have tested them in another system). None of them have Windows installed, though some do have existing data partitions. One of the three is a brand-new, never-been-used 1TB SSD. If I plug in any of these three other hard drives, the system will reboot immediately after POST. However, if SSD1 is plugged in it will boot to a USB stick - UEFI or Legacy, doesn't matter.
Secondly, if I attempt to create a partition, run a surface test, or install an OS to SSD1, the system immediately reboots. I can format SSD1, change volume sizes, run a surface scan, but only in a live linux environment - if I plug SSD1 into another machine as a secondary data drive (i.e., I boot to my primary boot volume), the other machine will blue screen when loading into Windows. If it is attached to this new machine, it will boot to a USB stick just fine.
I have also enabled Hot Plug, which allows me to access SATA drives that I plug in after boot. If I hot plug the brand-new 1TB SSD during a live linux distro, the drive shows up and I can see its properties. However, if I try to do something like create a partition or run a surface test, the machine will also immediately reboot.
Does anyone have any idea as to what might cause this? The only thing that I can think of that explains both problems is some kind of secure boot-like security feature, but I haven't been able to figure out how to confirm whether that is the case. In 20 years of building computers I have never even heard of anything like this. I am new to EFI systems, however, so I'm quite out of my element - this is the first EFI-based system I've set up.
Script file to clone and help build Clover or Opencore repos
Script will create link to itself in /usr/local/bin/bob
Script SHOULD fix up any stray bobs you may have.
Then you only need to type bob. and a parameter
"a" for ACID repo, official
"d" for ACID repo DUET build
"c" for CLOVER
"e" to erase UDK Folder
Easier typing bob than.....usual stuff
YOU WILL NEED TO cmod+x THE SCRIPT
I'm trying to install MacOS Catalina on the ACER C22-760 (i3 6100U, 520 HD)
I did all the usual prep to install the system, especially as I've done hackintoshes with the same specs in the past.
But after the moment it boots up, the screen goes black. So I decided to install the system booted in 0x12345678 and then fix the graphics.
Long story short, with the installation done I've tried every single combination to fix the graphics and found out that:
Booting with a 0x12345678, a 1080p monitor is detected, but obviously, no acceleration. Booting only with AAPL,ig-platform-id set to 19160000, the system boots with complete acceleration but no monitor attached into any framebuffer. About this Mac reports a 1280 x 1024 monitor (Found using Anydesk and ioreg remotely.) Changing the connector type to DP or HDMI, Internal o External, platform-id is useless. This system is getting me anxious. Because I don't find any fix for it.
Someone can help me out? Love ya!
PD: The system is an All In One with no HDMI port.

After hearing that OpenCore is so much better than Clover, and that it will probably be able to boot Big Sur before Clover does, I decided to take the jump.
Running Catalina 10.15.5 18F101 with OC 0.5.9.
So far I like the result. The OS feels faster, boots faster.
And absolutely everything works (sleep, network, etc...)
So, that's it? Is there anything else I have to do?
