@darthsian That point does not relate to ACPI, which there is no good point for such a quirk, but only to SMBIOS. The thing with SMBIOS is, we consider OpenCore to be an environment, where we expose Mac information to seamlessly boot macOS. Now, if you do not want Windows to be part of that environment, the most intuitive solution is to just not boot Windows through this environment. Why do you want to boot Windows via OpenCore "so badly" if it causes trouble?

Looks like you missed quite of few updates to the config, compare yours to the newer Sample.plist

HI Pavo

 

Thank you, you were right. I have used old config.plist to the updated OC version which made this issue. 

 

One more question, how can I add CPU type to OC?

Either by using Kernel > Emulate or PlatformInfo > SMBIOS

Because i just want one environment for multi boot purpose. Never mind, I just wanted to share some of my opinions. You are doing great job with OpenCore. Thanks for that.

In case you added a kext or ACPI table and it's causing the system trouble and not being able to boot anymore:

is there a way to edit the config.plist file of OpenCore in boot picker/or using a OC tool so you can drop that specific ACPI table or not inject that specific kext that is causing trouble ?

 

For now i always make a USB flash drive with current working EFI so in case i mess, i boot from the USB as a last known good working bootloader configuration.

 

Enter shell from picker:

fs0:
cd EFI/OC
edit config.plist

You'll figure out rest.

If anyone is interested in disabeling divices that aren’t present in real MAC like AMW0, SIO1, MBDA, TPMX here some small SSDT examples. They are reenabled for other OSes( If (_OSI ("Darwin”)…). Check if you have the same scopes and rename “fits”. Works for ASUS H81M-E. Tested for over month no issue.REM_DEV.zip

AMW0, for example, just ignored by macOS. Not needed to disable it manually.

Tested for nine years by thousands users no issue.

You right removing AMW0 from IOReg is rather cosmetic, but for example device CWDT which also not present in real Mac, may confuse monitoring(here older topic), I’m far from being expert, thou. As I mentioned I have no issue after removing them, the only non MAC devices in my IOReg are FAN(0,1…)  and TZ01,2

So I am testing OC.

I "transplanted" my Clover config over to OC 0.5.6 for my Z77X-UP5-TH motherboard and now booting Mojave & Catalina.

 

Questions about DEBUG output:

 

1. With the debug build, at boot I see the following on the screen :

OC-start2.thumb.jpg.7f8884c89befebee243cb52089708326.jpg

 

I have removed Clover on the EFI Partition and installed OC on it. Why is OC starting two times ?

 

2. Is there a way to have this initial text redirected to the OC log file on the root of the EFI together with he rest of the log ?

 

In my config.plist, I have set :

Root->Misc->Debug->DisplayLevel->0x80000042

Root->Misc->Debug->Target->0x45

 

I have tried different settings of DisplayLevel and Target but the initial screen output (shown above) never makes it to the log file.

 

3. With the Non-DEBUG version of OC, is it possible to still have the PREBOOT log (like Clover) instead of:

00:000 00:000 Starting ApfsDriverLoader ver. 2.1.5
01:384 01:384 EfiBootRecord located at: 5833904 block

PS. Alt/Esc, CMD+R, etc keys work well and even got the BootChime :)

Carefully compared the plists and read about changes, here is my 0.5.6 config file is you want to take a look in case of any error from my side> https://pastebin.com/02R2e4fp

Make sure you are also updating the FwRuntimeService driver and BootX64 module when updating opencore module.

Hi all,

 

I also took a chance to start with opencore, tried installing but I cannot get any further. I got the message below and stuck on how to proceed. Added my EFI folder with drivers, ssdt's and kexts. In clover I am using macmini 8,1 smbios, used the same for OC. Attached my config file, I deleted all the serials and stuff. 

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Good question, I know the CPU is a mobile one since it is the same as the macbook pro 2019 so I assume the MB is mobile as well. It this mini pc: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13931/eglobal-nuc-pc-packs-hex-core-i7-8750hk but then it's the 8850h version.  SYWZ S200 series is the MB name. GPU is the internal UHD630.

I don't know nothing about NUC. Maybe someone else can help you. Take a look at Configurations.pdf (Acidanthera repo) or this guide---> External OC Guide

@mhkmichaell check scanpolicy in your config and in configuration.pdf

I think the scanpolicy is ok because I put that same USB stick to my PC and everything is visable and I can run instalation. 
HP uefi is f*** up I think and OC can’t properly scan for disk. Only HP user know what I meen.

      Hi all
       
      I've got a fully working install of Catalina 10.15.5 using OpenCore 0.5.9 and I've managed to get everything working perfectly. It's my first PC Build ever (Let alone Hackintosh) so I'm pretty pleased that I've managed to get everything up and running so far, including Thunderbolt 3 (with hotplug), Sidecar, onboard HDMI Audio, Wifi/BT pairing across both OS (Windows 10 and MacOS). The only thing that now bugs me is the time taken to boot from the Opencore picker to my login screen. It's not super slow by any means, but with my specs I believe it should be faster. Here is what I'm running:
       
      Intel Core i7 10700K
      Gigabyte Z490 Vision D
      Noctua NH-D15S
      Corsair LPX 3000MHz 32GB RAM (2x16GB)
      Adata XPG SX8200 1TB NVMe SSD (MacOS)
      Adata XPG SX8200 1TB NVMe SSD (Windows 10)
      Crucial BX200 1TB SSD (Storage)
      Crucial MX500 2TB SSD (Storage)
      Asus 8GB Dual Arez RX580
      Corsair RM650
      Fenvi HB1200
       
      Windows boot is pretty sharp - Usually under 10secs. MacOS on the other hand usually is in the region of ~70secs. When I first installed Catalina it would boot super quick, but it's gotten more and more sluggish over the last few weeks. Is there anything I can do to speed it up? I can attach my EFI if needed.
       
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone,
      I found a guide on how to install Catalina on Lenovo M920q, everything works well but the installation is freezing up.
      The USB bootable drive is a recovery one with internet based installation. The internet is working well on the pre-installation setup (I tested it, when you can use the utilities).
      The installation is freezing whether I am installing the macOS or not.
      I've attached my EFI partition so you can check if there's anything to add.
      Will realy appreciate any kind of help (quit noob to the whole thing).
      Thanks in advance and stay safe!
       
      NOTE: I did followed up the troubleshooting guide of OpenCore installation forum and the answer was to add the  NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to the kexts and configure it on the .plist file.
      This is the original EFI folder: EFI.zip
      Thats the one with the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext added: EFI.zip

      I’ve followed the Dortania IvyBridge Desktop configuration guide (https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/) as closely as possible for this computer:
       
      Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth X79 GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2 GB I believe this is a Sandy Bridge or Sandy Bridge-E in reality.
      The good: I can boot my existing MacOs Catalina 10.15.6 installation.
      The bad: 
      I have NO mouse or keyboard (or USB of any kind). I cannot boot the installer 10.15.6 because it is on a USB thumb drive.  
      When I boot either installer or MacOs partition, I see the LED indicator on my thumb drive turns off.
       
      The error message that I see that seems to be applicable is: 
      Waiting on <dict ID=“0”><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID=“1”>IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch</key><string ID=“2”>boot-uuid-…..>
      For a glimpse of my EFI folder please see https://github.com/aaronpfoltzer/opencore
      I have UsbInjectAll.kext in my Kexts folder and XhciPortLimit set to true. I thought this would temporarily allow USB ports to work until I did the actual USB mapping. My SSDT-EC is done manually but matches the output from SSDTTime anyway. I’ve tried different SMBIOS. (iMacPro1,1 which is what I am using now with Clover, but now iMac13,2 as recommended for IvyBridge Desktops).

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (July 2020) Updated to Clover r5120 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        Various Tweaks over Last months The main branch in my github repo is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle seems to work on Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave and Catalina. There is an OpenCore branch in the repo as an alternative to Clover. This guide was developed for a Clover implementation. But the thread has evolved to include discussion of both Clover and Opencore for these systems: T460 and T470 family of ThinkPads.
       
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
