This worked for me when I got the stop sign (circle with a slash?), but I can't guarantee it since I don't know why it worked. Try resetting the BIOS by either taking out the battery for 1 minute (turn of the computer first, of course) and replacing it, or you can use a flat head screwdriver to short the CLR_CMOS for 5 seconds (known as connector 21, Clear CMOS Jumper in the Pro WiFi manual).

 

Reboot while pressing DEL to get into BIOS. You'll have to redo all your BIOS settings and save. Good luck. I'm going to get some sleep.

 

Hi,

 

Thank you for your reply.

I tried what you suggested with no chance.

 

Please find attached the verbose boot of catalina.

Don't know what to do.

I'm sorry, i read your post but I was just trying to understand. These are new things for me and I don't want to risk making a mess, because touching the bios is a delicate operation. 
I'll read github and i try to unlock

Dear alboz83,

 

Did you succeed in unlocking cfg?

Ehi, after a few research I unlocked CFG. With grub tool and setup_var

Finnaly, I reload the "CFG Unlock (MSR) F12d BIOS Profile" and it has boot again on Catalina ! :blink:

Seriously I don't know what I missed because the configuration was exactly the same. Maybe the unlock part was gone while I used it before installation...

Then regarding the unlock part, can anyone explain me what is the point ?

 

Thanks to all.

By the way I also resolved the iMessage issue (don't know for FT because I don't have webcam :))

 

Next step, check that all is good and create a backup !

This way beyond me. At this point I start doing guesswork like booting into safe mode, reinstalling the EFI, deleting kernel caches etc. So you are better off waiting for somebody more knowledgeable about the inner workings of the OS on the forum.

 

Sorry I can't be of more help.

 

* However, if I had to guess, because I can only recognize the term "prelinked kernel" (I have no idea if that is the problem), I would try booting into safe mode using clover. I think you get the menu option using the space bar or manually passing the "-x" to the bootloader. If you can get in that way you can try to delete the kernel cache and let it rebuild. I'm not a whiz at the command line, so I like using a GUI utility like OnyX (v3.7.9 for Catalina) to delete the caches.

 

** Disclaimer: this is a total guess, but rebuilding your cache shouldn't hurt your system. You're probably better off waiting for another answer before you try this :)

Dear alboz83,

 

unfortunately I could not understand how to make this unlocked

 

You literally just boot using modGRUBShell.efi, enter the command and you are done. Links to all these tools and instructions are in this forum. Search for them.

Sorry, I didn't realize you were using an unlocked BIOS. My advice of resetting the BIOS without reloading the unlocked profile made it worse.

@AudioGod thank you for the update of EFI! I've updated my EFI and I installed latest macOS updates (10.15.4) without any issues, it's been a few days now and everything works smoothly! Today I realised that my WiFi is not working (I'm using Ethernet all the time but I had to connect via WiFi today because of an unrelated to this topic issue), I quickly realised that after updating my EFI folder I did not include AircomBrcmFixup.kext (v2.0.6), which is required for my ARCHER T6E to properly work. 

 

My issue is that I used to connect to WiFi without any issue, and most likely it might be an issue of the kext itself, now I cannot connect to any WEB/WPA2 password-protected network, even though that I'm entering the proper password, it still pops up a message of incorrect password. I have my MacBook next to me and another windows laptop and also three mobile phones (I had to be sure :P) and I can connect to the network without any issues, using the WiFi password I'm entering to in my Hackintosh, but the second reject's my password.

 

I changed the password a few times, and while all the other devices can connect, my Hackintosh cannot.

 

When I remove the password, then my Hackintosh can connect.

 

I tested both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, I got the same behaviour in both bands.

 

Is anyone else facing the same or similar issue? I will try tomorrow with version 2.0.3 which I know that it used to work properly because I have in my EFI backups in earlier version when I was using glasgood's EFI.

 

Thanks to all and stay safe & healthy @ home! :D

Hey Buddy,

i did a google search on your WiFi card and it’s coming back as being incompatible with macOS as of 10.14.6 so I’m not sure what to suggest. Is it possible that it hasn’t been working for you since you went to 14.6 and you have only just noticed now?

Thank you for the awesome guide AudioGod, Glasgood and all the other people who contributed! 

It helped me a lot!

 

Unfortunately I cannot get CFG unlocked.. :( (Aorus Pro WiFi)

Although this is something easy to do, I still cannot get it to work after hours of trying.

I get this GUID error (image below) when I do the setup_var_3 with the modified grub shell.

 

First I was thinking this was normal, but when I check the file it still says:

CFG Lock, VarStoreInfo (VarOffset/VarName): 0x5C1, VarStore: 0x1

I dit this checkup this way:

-Save BIOS

-UEFITool --> IFR Extractor

-Look for CFG lock in text file: VarStore still says 0x1

--> I don't know if this is the correct method?

 

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

 

*Another question:

When I try the N-D-K OpenCore EFI it won't boot. (circle with slash)

Has this something to do with no CFG unlock?

I can boot the Clover EFI perfectly fine.

Hello and thanks for the kind words.

the real problem going on for you is the igpu being enabled with OpenCore,

I only just fixed it in clover and have also fixed it in OpenCore but I am awaiting the release of version 0.5.7 Togo public before l let it out in the wild so for now just stick with clover until I post the new Oc EFIs.

 

about Unlocking your MSR, that’s been coming up a lot in the past few days for the pro WiFi model so just read though from a few pages back and there’s all sorts of solutions posted. The simplest way to unlock it is to do it yourself via a grub. :) 
 

p.s if your desperate to get OC going then you can do by removing all power from the system and then removing the motherboards battery for a few minutes, put it all back together and dial back in your bios settings and away you should go.

I’m looking into it for you guys.

 

Today I had again the problem that all USB ports are frozen at once. 

I had the problems with both Clover and OpenCore. I am currently using your latest EFI with Clover.

 

I have a LED keyboard, but it was still lit, so I don't assume that this is a power problem. 
I also use a USB DAC, which just stopped working, but the LED stays on.

 

However, no more input via mouse or keyboard is possible. Plugging or replugging the USB ports of the mouse did not solve the problem. 
Only a reboot solves the problem. 

 

Unfortunately I can't find any information in the system logs that points to this error. 
If you need my support, I can provide you with log files, maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place. 


Best regards

Hi,

 

yep we are still looking into it as it only happens to a few isolated users and fortunately one of them does tests for me so we are currently looking for a solution to it. It’s a difficult one as it’s not happening to many people at all myself included so it makes it harder to pin down fully.

Also what makes it even harder is the fact it rarely happens so each change and retest can take a week before the usb fails slowing the fault finding process right down. 

 

Its very random and we don’t really think it’s EFI related anymore but still we are trying to solve it.

Please bare with me and rest assured you haven’t been forgotten about.

Thank you very much, AudioGod. 

Due to the current Corona Pandemic I currently spend about 10 working hours a day in front of my hackintosh. So if you need more testers for debugging, feel free to contact me. :) 

And again, thanks for you great work anyway.

Oh ok, no problem mate! I will wait for OC 0.5.7 and will use Clover for the moment.

 

Haha yes I know, I watched these posts on previous pages multiple times and even then it was hard to understand if you are doing this for the first time. (Noob :rolleyes:)

I was doing this with Grub, but my checking method was wrong I think.

 

Now I did the check with: VerifyMsrE2 and it says unlocked? (see image)

So I think it's all good now?

Or is this only for checking if this motherboard has possibility to unlock? :|

 

*Ok I think I found the right way to check if it's unlocked:

-setup_var_3 0x5C1 0x00 <- to set it
-setup_var_3 0x5C1 <-to check it

-result with checking method: offset 0x5C1 is: 0x00

--> It think it's working now :)

MESSAGE TO ANYBODY FEELING HELPFUL,

 

Could somebody that’s using a Z390 Pro WiFi using bios F12c with the MSR Unlocked kindly save a MSR Profile with my Bios settings listed on page one to a USB key and zip it up post it on here for the people that need it????

 

Thanks Guys and stay safe :) 

 

Dear AudioGod,

 

I just finished unblocking the MSR, I performed the method in the OpenCore Vanilla Guide, as kindly mentioned by others here on the topic. After unlocking, I ran geekbench4 again and noticed the following gains:

 

Single Core
6202 -> 6284

 

Multi-Core

35408 -> 36092

OpenCL

 

151813 -> 157833

 

iMacPro1,1
i9-9900KF
Aorus RX 5700 XT

 

Attached is the profile that I saved from my firmware after unlocking it for use by other users of the Aorus Z390 Pro Wifi if they wish.

As my processor does not have integrated video, if the user wants to use an iMac profile, he must enable igpu in the BIOS to avoid any error.

Thank you, again, AudioGod for allowing the hackintosh dream to materialize for novice users like me.

Sorry for my English, I'm using a translation tool.

@AudioGod hey mate! Yes, it is absolutely possible as I'm rarely using it and I haven't used it for several months... I mostly keep it on just for the location services to work properly but I needed it yesterday; thus I realised that it is not working :P

 

Well I have a spare PCI-E ABWB BCM943602CS laying around, I might plug it in and just not connect the Bluetooth that it has on it since I do not need it :D

 

Or I might just leave it as it is until it will be supported again :D 

 

Thanks for the info mate!

      This guide is a work in progress and will be updated as I refine the installation.
       
      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.
       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec SMBIOS MacModel MacMini 8,1 Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.  
      Installation Steps: To be provided
      See attached EFI and /L/E kexts in EliteDesk.zip archive See installation methodology here See references here  
      What is not working
      Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).  
      What is not tested
      USB c 3.1 port Microphone port  
      What is working
      Everything not mentioned above Sleep / Wake Multiple displays with IGPU graphics acceleration, hot pluggable display ports and DP->DVI adapters USB 3.1 ports Audio (internal speaker and headphone jack) Ethernet Auto-sensing headphone jack automatically switches to internal speaker when headphones removed  
      Known Issues and their solutions
      (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Unable to upgrade from 10.15.4 to 10.15.5 when using IntelMausiEthernet.kext.  Solution is to switch to IntelMausi.kext (Rev 1.0.2 here). (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Some USB devices were not recognized. My SSDT-UIAC.aml was incomplete and did not specify all required USB port types (missing SSxx ports). The attached EliteDesk.zip archive includes this fix. (Reported this as a possible Clover issue - no solution yet) Clover boot loader may default to Recovery volume after a normal shutdown.  Work-around is to select your normal macOS volume.  This may only happen when Clover is configured to boot LastBootedVolume and may be "fixable" by explicitly setting a boot volume (haven't tested this). (No longer observed) At least one display blanks (sleeps) when plugging / unplugging USB device (observed in front USB 3.1 ports).  Display wakes immediately on keyboard and mouse activity, so this is a minor issue but may be indicative of another issue. (Solved - this is a BIOS setting and requires no macOS changes) Safari has problems loading insanelymac web pages after sleep / wake.  I suspect that the problem is with the embedded video on the pages.  Also observed video problem in AppStore after sleep/wake.  Console: VideoDecodersUnavailable.  Solution is to enable Intel ME in BIOS. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Display does not fully wake after resuming from sleep (needs an extra mouse or keyboard stimulus to fully wake).  Solution is to change boot arg darkwake=0 to darkwake=2.  Other values of darkwake may work as well, but this is the first I tried and it worked. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) -disablegfxfirmware boot arg is not required with WEG.  I inadvertently left this boot arg after I encountered an endless gfx firmware update boot loop while working on my FB patching.  This boot arg is no longer necessary after completing FB patching with WEG. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive): Sometimes, CMOS time is lost on shutdown or restart.  Solution is to enable Clover's Apple RTC fix in config.plist. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) headphone jack doesn't work.  Solution is to change HDEF layout-id to 28. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) System freezes on wake from sleep because of a kernel panic related to hda-gfx (my system does not have HDMI and my DP->DVI adapters do not drive monitor speakers).  Solution is to add No-hda-gfx property to HDEF as described here.  This property is recognized as a Lilu flag and prevents loading hda-gfx. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Device (PMCR) is not defined.  Solution is a SSDT that "injects" the missing device. (Solved and included in the attached archive) eficheck is loaded (not sure why this is bad, but may be a privacy issue - see here). Solution is to add updated EFICheckDisabler kext that include Q370 chipset.  See here.

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      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 F11c, 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 F11c to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      mb_bios_z390-aorus-master_f11c.zip - Aorus Z390 Master Bios F11c 
       
      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 04/05/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update v5115 - 04/05/2020 - Use with Bios revision F11c Only or Replace with the older F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      Clover Z390 Master Navi Vega EFI 040520.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT EFI
      Clover Z390 Master Polaris EFI 040520.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) DSDT 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 v0.5.8 - 04/05/2020
      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 058 Z390 Master 19,1 040520.zip - OpenCore v0.5.8, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 058 Z390 Master 1,1 040520.zip - OpenCore v0.5.8, 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.
       
       
      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 F11c Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      CFG Unlock (MSR) F11c BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU
       
       
      ADDITIONAL DSDT's (A big thanks to @MaLd0n for compiling these DSDT's)
       
       
      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)
