OpenCore Discussion

Can I propose a new subforum be created for the new OpenCorePkg OpenCore front end being created by vit9696 and others, it is a fantastic piece of work:

https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg

Even at version 0.1 it runs my Mojave 10.14.4 setup very nearly flawlessly. It consists of a 10KB bootstrap BootX64.efi and a 200KB OpenCore.efi OS loader. All configuration is done using a very well documented config.plist :)

The only issues I have so far are not being able to turn off efi verbose debug output during FV2 boot and the boot picker not showing one of my SATA SSD drives. Apart from that it works 100%. Reading the very comprehensive configuration PDF makes it easy to set up all drivers, kexts and device injection. The reason it appeals to me is that the code base is minimal and there’s no legacy cruft. Hats off to vit9696!

Good idea. Thanks FredWst for the tip about hiding debug output

Hi to all :)

first one here to ask

IMG_2552.thumb.jpg.f5e1a7ee2be4304549b6b290b4b800f8.jpg1741487319_ScreenShot2019-04-26at5_47_38PM.png.38e607270407b0777751663ad7e18a58.png

 

Reading configuration pdf it seems activating PlatformInfo /Automatic yes we Bypass generic configuration

For me this is the only way to boot otherwise I have Hang you see in first pictures

Could be possible to have generic parameter to boot in not automatic way (PlatformInfo /Automatic=NO)?

Other minor problem I have are:

Applealc

acpi rename seems not work here

Take a look at samples plist in doc directory. there is two configs files provide as example.

If your're using automatic = NO be careful -> take time to fill all value.

can u post your config.plist.

This one should works for you. just adding missing part and automatic = NO

@ Fabiosun 

If you set Automatic to No you can remove the 'Generic' dictionary from your config.plist. As Andrey1970 says, just fill in the other 3 fields carefully (DataHub, PlatformNVRAM and SMBIOS) using the data for your iMacPro1,1. That's some beast you've got there judging by your 'About This Mac' image!

@Fred_Wst

I applied your changes to my plist, it has helped but I still get a wee bit of console output
