New build for my hackintosh

Hi! I'm going to build my first hackintosh for rendering and graphics in general (blender, keyshot, Adobe pack etc.), I was thinking of Windows dual boot with different ssd. My first option was a Ryzen 5/7 3000 series but I read that cpu and problems with Adobe Pack, so Intel, specifically i7 9700k or 9600k, is the best compromise for me. I ask for the maximum possible stability (ok stability is in relation to the kexts that I inject, but I'm looking for a consolidated build :)) and I'm open to other configurations with other CPUs. The budget is 500€ max 700€ without considering psu, case, monitor and for now gpu (I was thinking of rx 580 8gb). My current configuration is i5 4590, h97m and r9 280x, I tried to create a hackintosh but it was full of problems, I spent 4 days trying to solve many problems but nothing, the bios of h97m is strange there is not everything is need to continue (tips?) and maybe it's not entirely incompatible, so I let it go. That's all! Ah sorry for my bad english!

Help! Black Screen trying to install Catalina with OpenCore

So I decided to get into Hackintoshing now since I have so much space time on my hands due to the current pandemic, plus I kinda want to see how it feels like to code on mac.

However, I was trying to install MacOS with opencore, but I kept getting a black screen after this line of text: IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0

From what I understand it seems to be an issue with the gpu(?)


- Aorus z390 Pro Wifi

- i7-9700K

- RTX 2070 Super (Using iGpu when booting to MacOS


- AppleALC.kext

- IntelMasui.Kext

- Lilu.kext

- SMCProcessor.Kext

- SMCSuperIO.Kext

- USBInjectAll.Kext

- VirtualSMC.Kext

- WhateverGreen.Kext





- SSDT-PMC.aml


What I have Tried:

- Setting iGPU as default GPU

- adding agdpmod=pikera to launch settings

- plugging another monitor into my motherboard

Here's a [link]( ) to my config.plist, kexts, and SSDTs

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Unable to boot or update to 10.15.5

Has 10.15.5 broke anything crucial? I had a stable and fully working system on 10.15.4, updated all kexts and Clover before installing the latest update. I couldn't get my system to boot, luckily I had a USB installer on 10.15.1 so I was able to rollback, then tried applying the combo update and same scenario. If I select the update partition in Clover the computer restarts right after showing the loading bar. I have tried booting in verbose + debug=0x100 to get an idea of what's causing it, but it still reboots and I don't see any KP information. Any ideas? Thanks

Update to Catalina 10.15.5 broke my onboard graphic (black screen) / I5 9600K / Gigabyte Z390M

Update to Catalina 10.15.5 broke my onboard graphic (black screen) / I5 9600K / Gigabyte Z390M


I recently built a working Hackintosh, I had a lot of help from the german Hackintosh Forum. It was really a bit fricky with the graphics. However, it worked perfectly, until now for the update to 10.15.5. Unfortunately, I now get a black screen. It does not matter whether HDMI, DVI or DP. Currently I use DP.

My hardware:

  • Gigabyte Z390M Motherboard
  • Intel I5 9600K CPU
  • Intel UHD 630 with device id: 0x3E98

Bootloader is OpenCore 0.5.8 with WhateverGreen, Lilu, VirtualSMC ... (It's all up to date.)

My current working OC config within 10.15.4:

OC Config 10.15.4

My bios settings: ("Eingeschaltet" is "ON"; "Ausgeschaltet" is "OFF")

This issue seems related:
But for example doesnt work for me.

May someone have an idea? Thanks in advance

Clover to OpenCore on my accidental buy of Dell Optiplex 9020 USFF instead of SFF

Clover to OpenCore on my accidental buy of Dell Optiplex 9020 USFF instead of SFF

Supposed to buy a Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF (As advertised) for my homelab cluster. When I went down to collect the item, it was an USFF (Specs were also wrong). I didn't confront the seller as I got it for less than 100USD. I brought it home and thinking what to do with it. Decided to install Hackintosh since I have sold off my 2014 MBP last year.

Took me a week to setup clover in Jan and it was pretty stable. Decided to go OpenCore after reading this sub. I would say it was rather complicated for initial start. Many stuffs to read, but it's good as you understand what you trying to configure. Took me 3 days to finish reading and redo my hackintosh. I would say I enjoyed it. Thanks for the detailed explanation at dortania GitHub and this sub for driving me to use OpenCore.


  • i5-4590T
  • 16GB Memory
  • Intel Graphics HD 4600
  • Plextor 256GB SSD
  • BCM94360HMB for Bluetooth and Wifi (Continuity, AirDrop, Wifi) working perfectly. $30USD+ from eBay

Designaire z390 Clover to OC dual boot error

So I changed the clover setup to OC as OC seems to be better but the problem I'm running into now is really weird. When I'm at the picker screen and I choose windows it gives me a BSOD error with 0x0000000d and says PC/Device needs to be repaired. If i unplug the osx ssd and let it boot it, it boots into windows just fine. Not sure what the issue is. Any ideas? My EFI is here:

help understanding boot issue

I'm making slow progress and making a few mistakes along the way but I think (or hope) Im learning.

I'm getting stuck booting up OpenCore with the USB, does this Log mean anything to anyone? or can I provide anything else to help work out where I'm going wrong?
