Weird thing. I am sure I saved config plist but now I opened it and the entries are nowhere to be found. I'll do it again and report back.

 

Indeed, tried that again and nothing changes in the USB section:

Did you try with and without the Broadcom fix I sent you?

Sorry, had to go to bed. 

 

I have tried with all different combinations of the kext's you gave me. Still slow internet, laggy mouse when doing a upload test, jittery mouse in normal use.

Make sure you have your Fenvi card on the last slot of your motherboard and the header cable on the F_USB2 connector

If I can chime in. You definitely don't need all those kexts. I have the same card and it is recognized and works perfectly.

 

These are the only kexts you need (if you have a pretty vanilla system without a bunch of other hardware or peripherals attached):

While I know you want the problem fixed, but just arbitrarily chucking kexts at it isn't really the best way to go about it. What FENVI card do you have? I know MQUPIN sells them as well (which is what I have): https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07Z3MN5XM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

The native card is a BCM94360CD but you have BCRM20702 listed, so it's not being identified properly:

 

1298942662_ScreenShot2020-01-21at1_44_59PM.png.b4cd3c1f284284f25cf8e3cc9b64d3ff.png

 

I have nearly an identical system. I say start over. Or just run the EFI (after adding in your SMBIOS details) off a Catalina USB installer. That's a pretty clean way of testing hardware without having to deal with caching or NVRAM or anything else.

 

Another option is to toss it into a PC running Windows and ensure it's actually working correctly. You could have just got a bad card.

 

As for unlocking your MSR, you have the Pro (not WIFI), so just download and flash the unlocked BIOS that AG has linked in his guide. If you don't want to do that, you can do it using https://github.com/datasone/grub-mod-setup_var/releases. The offset is 0x5C1. (Make sure you use setup_var_3, it will still throw an error but will patch your board.

 

But I assure you, you don't need any BT kexts. It works OOB, that's why the card is so popular.

 

Lastly, ordering in OC matters. Just FYI.

I do have the MQUPIN and I am not facing any issues. Actually I do also have unlock with Apple Watch working pretty solid as well. I am normally using the provided EFI same Kexts as yours, I just tried these additional Kexts upon @AudioGod’s request. I don’t normally use them.

 

Is your card identified correctly in your setup? 
 

Regarding the MSR unlock, Bluetooth is junky and devices disconnect upon boot when I uncheck kernelPM OR when I disable the lock flags on the OC config.plist (after having loaded the unlock profile of course). Maybe the fault is that my card is not recognized properly? And I’m curious as to why this is happening as this is how it is recognized with the stock EFI kexts as well.

Ya my card works OOB. And I have the same MQUPIN. So just to be clear, it's your BT that's not working properly? But your WIFI is fine? The card has 4 antennas, one of which is dedicated for BT (not sure which one that is, but would love to know). The rest all drive WIFI. It could be that the signal is being attenuated. I have the WIFI variant of this board so I used the antenna from Gigabyte which is better quality and has quite a bit of length to the cables so it's not buried in the back of your PC.

 

IMO, you got a bad card. I would pull it or try it in another OS. It works great in Windows with the appropriate drivers. First ensure the card is actually working as it should before you toss kexts at it. Because I can tell you that macOS does indeed support the card OOB. No fiddling, nothing.

 

If the card is indeed working, maybe pick up some better antennas. I have been thinking about these: https://www.amazon.ca/COVVY-Dual-Band-Connector-Wireless-Extender/dp/B07TQ4Y47D/ref=pd_sbs_147_12?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07TQ4Y47D&pd_rd_r=633adfd9-9eb9-4404-a720-b82f1327d6dc&pd_rd_w=oVTIx&pd_rd_wg=lHBxQ&pf_rd_p=dbebb38c-0e3d-4a67-ac15-432d7c7a2789&pf_rd_r=CWFFRSGN6RDH4R9TNZ6W&psc=1&refRID=CWFFRSGN6RDH4R9TNZ6W

 

You could just grab 2, just to boost the BT.

 

EDIT: Actually how does the BT work when you're in post (or the BIOS)? I find the card is a bit twitchy, where sometimes it picks up the BT device (I have a wireless Apple Keyboard I'm using) fast enough for me to hit F12 to get the boot options and other times, it lags behind to where OC/Clover has already loaded before it connects.

 

The card works but it isn't the greatest. I'm still hunting for something that has better performance and reliability.

@Tiem I was just trying to get to the bottom of he’s problem and sometimes chucking kexts that have a purpose does make sense, yes your right it is a native card but to find out what’s going on with he’s system I need to try different steps and that was one of them So while I understand totally what you mean you should also realise that I am just taking steps to try and help pinpoint what’s going on so I can find a better fix for him. :)

@WizeMan

 

Hmm, there's something definitely up with the EFI. I was just copying over files to my NAS via WIFI. Lost connection on my keyboard and my mouse (G903 on a dongle) got all jittery. No such issues in Clover.

 

EDIT: Lost the Apple Watch unlock option (came back in a few minutes). Just out of curiosity, do you have anything else connected that's wireless (BT, Dongle, etc.)?

 

Ok after some reading, I'm gonna say you're card is likely gone. I can't speak for the proper Fenvi's but the knock-off by MQUPIN isn't that great. I still have time to return it so I'm going to likely send it back to Amazon and grab something else.

If I may chime in - I have one of the Fenvi T919 Cards worked great in Sierra and High Sierra oob no problem in both OS X and Windows. The problem started when I upgraded to Mojave, It would connect but the wifi would be constantly hunting for connection special after sleep/wake plus the Bluetooth would be lost registering as not install. After trying numerous fixes to no avail, I tossed the card and bought a genuine Apple WiFi/Bluetooth Combo with a PCIe Adapter (a bit pricey) and never had that problem again. Great strong signal, instant connection at boot up and between wake /sleep. I must add the T919 was ok on the Windows side but later became glitchy on Mac side so what changed I don't know and at this stage don't care :). Not saying they are no good just mine became unusable.

@eSaF I am returning my knock off T919 but ordered a real one. After what you said, I don't think it'll be any better really. Can you give me more details of what you got exactly? Having crappy wireless is not something I want. I find the Fenvi to be pretty unreliable. Sometimes it connects at post, not others. Pretty annoying when you're trying to enter your BIOS.

Hiya,

 

Sorry guys I went to bed then work. I am using the EFI for 12d without any relating kexts, it seems to be working better, I think. However this is still what system info reports...

Hey all,

 

I originally posted this in this thread ->

But there seems to be a bit more lively over here, so I'll copy my post here.

 

Install went more or less without a hickup, and everything seemed to be working perfectly. However, I'm having these weird small lags where the application I'm in will just stop responding and/or keyboard input stops. The dreaded spinning rainbow wheel shows up now and then. Every UI transition is buttery smooth, however, so I dont think it is related to the GPU? It seems to be completely random. There is no CPU spike going on (I've got Activity monitor up at all times monitoring the state of things) Also, some programs seem to open very random, i.e activity monitor takes a good 7-8 seconds with the spinning wheel.

 

This is my first hackintosh, so I'm kind of at a loss at how I should even start looking for what's wrong.. 

 

My setup:

9900k

Aorus Master

Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 8GB

64 gb memory

1080ti disabled by properties

firmware F11c

2x 1TB 970 Evo Plus (one for windows and one for Catalina)

fenvi T919 (BCM94360CD)

 

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide that'll help in troubleshooting..

@Tiem This my wifi/bluetooth kit a bit pricey but works oob with strong signal even though the router and p/c is separated by a wall (in different rooms).

I bought an extra one for my next build, you can get the Card and PCI-e adapter on e-bay'. I forgot to include the antennas in the pics but you get the idea.

You sent me two additional iGPU builds but mouse and keyboard are still unresponsive in the catalina installer.

Ok Yes I remember, give me 20 mins if that and il send you a new EFI to try. Il suss out your config don’t worry, I’m on it! :)

      Hi Guys,

      I have have an old dell insprion 3670 laying around.I recently tried to hackintosh it with bigsur.I get to the apple logo and no progress bar. When in verbose mode it gave me this error when it had a kernal panic:.com.apple.AppleIntelGFLgraphicsFramebuffer. I am guessing this has got to do with my graphics but I am a noob at hackintoshing therefore struggling to figure it out. If anyone can help I would be very greatful as I have been trying to do this for weeks.Here is my Config.plist for anyone that can help:

      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues.

      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.

      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F11L, 9900k with a 5700 XT but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8600K, 8700, 8700K, 9400K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K, 9900KS (All KF Models work but use SMBios iMacPro1,1 instead)
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, RX 5500, 5500 XT, 5600, 5600 XT, 5700, 5700 XT
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
       
       
       @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install. (glasgood put the guide together for the Z390 Pro but the two boards are so alike that you can follow this guide with no problems at all using the Z390 Master)

      EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F11L or Higher to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      Z390AORUSMASTER.F11l.zip  - Aorus Z390 Master Bios Firmware F11L 
       
      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 05/10/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update v5120 - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F11L or Higher Only or Replace with the older F11c/F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      EFI Clover VEGA Navi 030820.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT SMBios 19,1 EFI
      EFI Clover Polaris NVIDIA 030820.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) SMBios 19,1 EFI
       
      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
       
      OpenCore EFI Update v0.6.2 - 05/10/2020 (Big Sur Ready)
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.
       
      OpenCore 062 Z390 Master 19,1 051020.zip - OpenCore v0.6.2, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 062 Z390 Master 1,1 051020.zip - OpenCore v0.6.2, SMBios iMacPro1,1 (IGPU Disabled)
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0 so please use the new Config.plist instead.
       
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following 

       
      PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11L Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      CFG Unlock (MSR) F11L BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU

       
      Test EFI
      OpenCore 0.6.3 with onboard Bluetooth and WIFI Enabled and Working 21/10/2020.
       
       
      To Create Your Own Patched DSDT Message @MaLd0n using the link bellow
      https://www.olarila.com/forum/17-dsdt-patch-requests/
      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)
