Lost my usb boot EFI, trying to reinstall to get my hackintosh back.

Hi All

I accidently messed up my USB stick with my Big Sur EFI Boot config.
I have re-done everything but it seems it might be having an issue trying to get it to boot because it was in sleep or hibernation mode.
I am running:
i5 8500 Coffee Lake
Asus Z370
AMD XT5500

 

Attached is the error screenshot and my config.plist

 

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated as this is my DEV machine at home.

 

TIA

config.plist

Have you remade it from your notes or from the standard guide?

Upon seeing a panic with register CR2, I'd try the EnableWriteUnprotector quirk. Clear NVRAM and reboot.

Sorry its taken me so long to respond, was travelling, but back now.

Oh My Hat, you are almost a LEGEND!!!! hahaha. It booted through all the text but then to a black screen and can't do anything from there.
Anything else you think I need to change now?
I didnt have notes (something i will make sure i backup this time, lol) so just from standard quide.

Not sure how to clear NVRAM, do you mean reset it in the boot menu?

Yes, ClearNvram or ResetNvram from OpenCore menu.

As far as I can tell, OpenCore works fine; the issue is within OS X.

So with EnableWriteUnprotector, you go through verbose boot with no kernel panic but end in a black screen.

Do you use bootarg "agdpmod=pikera" with your RT 5500XT?

Spoiler

Navi 10 Series

# Highest Supported OS: Current/Big Sur(11)

# Initial Supported OS: Catalina(10.15)

Currently, as of 10.15.1, Apple has finally added RDNA and Navi support!

Supported Cards:

  • RX 5500
  • RX 5500 XT
  • RX 5600
  • RX 5600 XT
  • RX 5700
  • RX 5700 XT
  • RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition

Radeon Pro:

  • Radeon Pro W5500
  • Radeon Pro W5700

Note: Most Navi cards currently require the boot argument agdpmod=pikera to get proper display out, also keep in mind DisplayPort can be a hit or miss as WhateverGreen needs to be adapted. See here for more info: RX5700XT: No dual monitor with WEG

Glad to know it worked. :) (Please feel free to use the Like/Thanks button.)

For the possible sake of other users, it was EnableWriteUnprotector + agdpmod=pikera, right?

 

Copy the EFI boot folder to an OS X partition, if it's not already done. Unmount USB EFI partition, mount your HDD/SSD EFI partition (do not have two EFI partitions mounted at the same time, it's confusing for you and for OS X). Copy EFI folder to EFI partition.

You may still want to do some post-install tweaks (OpenCanopy, USB mapping, audio mapping, etc.) before you're completely done.

Then, keep the USB stick in a safe place.

100% it was EnableWriteUnprotector=True + boot args: agdpmod=pikera.

Tx, let me get it booting off HDD.
