Here we go.
I have the following configuration:
Gigabyte Aorus Master Z390
Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro+
Corsair Vengeance 64GB 3000Mhz
Corsair H150i PRO (disconnected from the internal USB)
Samsung Evo 970 1 TB - Catalina Install
Intel 660p 1tb - simple storage drive
I have the latest Catalina version installed with OpenCore 0.5.8 Bootloader.
I have followed the guide, and also relied on this EFI, since I have the same hardware: https://github.com/cmer/gigabyte-z390-aorus-master-hackintosh
When idle the pc freezes - becomes unresponsive and my router disconnects from the internet (Archer C9, connected via PPPOE user/pass).
Besides the freezing issue, which I’m not sure where it comes from, the internet disconnection just puzzles me. Any ideas?
Things I tried so far:
Disabled cfg lock
Removed the BT BCM94360CS2 from the internal USB port (solved the sleep issue)
Removed IntelMausiEthernet.kext and disabled the NIC in BIOS - saw some similar problems related to this
Used Vgtab to generate the power table for the video card (Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro+)
Also, before OC bootloader is loaded I get this message, but otherwise boots normally:
OC: Setting NVRAM 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:rtc-blacklist - Not Found
I'll try replacing IntelMausiEthernet.kext with IntelMausi from Acidanthera, but I don't think it will make any difference since disabling the NIC and removing IntelMausiEthernet didn't do anything.
Delete the entries from Add and Block in config.plist to remove the NVRAM error above - although since it boots I don't think it's related to my freezing issue.
Writing this from a phone so apologies in advance for formatting errors etc.
I’d like to build / am in the process of building a new machine. I started, then my mobo died and had to be rma’d and that put things on hold for a while..
Now things are are back on track here’s what I’m looking at.
I would like the system to boot Mac OS for music etc and as main / general os, Windows for gaming and Linux for development etc.
Heres the hardware I’m looking at - when I was looking at this previously I had set it up with clover but am definitely looking to go opencore this time around.
Gigabyte Aorus Pro / Aorus Pro WiFi
Corsair 650w PSU
MSI Air Boost Vega 64
970 evo 1TB (Mac)
Intel 660p 512GB (Windows)
Crucial BX500 120GB (Linux)
2TB Barracuda or WD Blue (Storage)
Fenvi FV HB-1200 WiFi / Bluetooth
Aerocool Cylon Case
I wanted to rival next generation games consoles and get a newer GPU but I will not be using Catalina due to the removal of 32 bit support. Therefore I think the vega is about as good as I can get with Mojave, and it will still work fine in windows for gaming etc.
What are your thoughts on the above hardware ?
Hack/Mac-able? / With opencore ?
Any Issues I may encounter ?
I think I have most of the drivers / kexts for opencore together already but I’m obviously unable to progress with the ssdt files without the hardware. Wanted some advice on whether or not it’s doable before I splash the cash
I’ll also add to this thread / move it appropriately as the build progresses, hopefully smoothly
Got my first build up and running a few days ago, and while almost everything works perfectly, I'm experiencing some odd sound quality issues. I'm currently listening to my audio through the 3.5mm jack on the front of my case. The sound quality sporadically jumps from being muffled to clear and is also a bit staticky.
I've dug into a number of different scenarios that sound similar to mine, but I hoped that someone here might be able to give me more clarity.
Here's a sample of the issue: https://clyp.it/xyfxysf2
My hardware: CPU: Intel i9 9900k GPU: Radeon 5700 XT OC RAM: Corsair ddr4 32GB (2x16) Motherboard: Z390 Designare LGA1151
this is my 5th Hackintosh build, but the first one using OC 0.5.7 on Asus Prime Z390-P with Samsung M.2 EVO 970 1TB, and no, not the EVO 970 PLUS.
I followed https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Desktop-Guide/ to the letter, first attempting 10.15.4, and was rewarded with a nicely booting USB install medium. Trouble started at the beginning of the actual installation process, with the program "macOS Utilities" crashing and triggering display of "Installer Log". From there I could invoke "Disk Utility" to initialize the M.2 with APFS and launch "startosinstall" from "Terminal" but that only resulted in a reboot. Then I tried 10.15.3 and also 10.14.4, always using gibMacOS and createinstallmedia as per the guide, but again, "macOS Utilities" invocation would be followed by a reboot or the selection buttons of this program not doing anything. These failures were reproducible with both iGPU and Radeon RX580 driving my monitor via DP. I also briefly tried another USB install medium I had prepared with Clover for my previous build on another ASUS Z390 board which also got to "mac OS Utilities" only to freeze exactly there.
When I was really at wit's end, I dismounted the EVO 970 M.2 and hooked up an SATA EVO 860, and much to my surprise, the 10.15.4 install completed without any further hiccups.
Now I could just shrug and keep the SATA SSD, but I'd like to learn/understand what could possibly go wrong with the M.2 SSD and how to properly investigate this. Should I try to switch to the DEBUG version of OC 0.5.7 and enable a lot of logging? Not sure, as the failure seems to happen after the installer boot is finished and the "macOS Utilities" failures appear to happen in user space, at least in 10.15.4 there is the installer log indicating an array bounds violation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
PS: I could attach my EFI here, but its built following the vanilla guide Coffee Lake secition, plist.conf passes the on-line config checker and exactly that EFI works fine with the SATA SSD. So I'm rather looking for advice on how to investigate/provide useful input here.
I install hackintosh Catalina 10.15.4, I need some help:
If I shut down my Hackintosh, it will reboot.
If I sleep my Hackintosh, it never wakes up until I force to reboot it or shutdown it.
Can you help me to solve this problem?
