My Hackintosh Stops Booting (Opencore - Comet Lake, Big Sur)

I have this very annoying issue.


My system is working without problems for a couple of weeks then, all of a sudden ( usually after going into sleep ) it can no longer boot.


It gets stuck on this line: busy timeout 





Sorry for bad quality image. This happens already 3d time! Can you imagine how annoying this is.


All I can do now is attempt fresh install ( never mind losing all the data) from my install USB. 

However when I try to run the installer again in get stuck on : unexpected session 




and then scrambled screen with 'forbidden sign' in the middle




I have no idea what is going on and what is causing it! Almost ready to give up on it :(


Thank you for any advice on what is causing this and how to prevent this in the future?



My Hardware specs:



GPU: Nvidia GT 730

RAM: 16 Gig


CPU: Intel Core i3-10100F 3.6 GHz 6 MB

Wireless: Broadcom BCM 2045A0




Just in case this is EFI I use:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1M70LX9Obznsb7wjLKMTJonkUeHjwjtn2/view?usp=sharing

Hi, and welcome to InsanelyMac 😃


Please read this:


And about your issue, did you already mapped your USB ports?

Working USB is not the same as USB mapping. I think you don't read all the guide right?


There's a lot more to do, look some:

  1. Desktop Comet Lake
  2. Optimizing Power Management
  3. Fixing Sleep

Thanks I will try that and come back. 


But at what point of time should I do this? Post install? And then mounting the EFI with Propertree and adding some new changers? 


BTW, those output lines I always get this panic on, or whatever that is, do they actually say anything useful?
