10.15.4, OpenCore, Supermicro X10DAL-i, Dual Haswell-EP

I'm having trouble getting my configuration to boot.

Relevant specs:

  • Motherboard: Supermicro X10DAL-iRelevant
  • CPU: 2x Xeon E5-2623 v3
  • Graphics card: Firepro W9000
  • RAM: 4x 8GB of some unbuffered ECC 2133

The logic I followed in writing the config was to follow the steps for Haswell-E as it's broadly similar to Haswell-EP, take all of the steps corresponding to X99 as C612 is literally the same chip binned higher, and tack on AppleMCEReporterDisabler.kext for dual CPUs. Besides that, DevirtualiseMmio is off, as with it on I'd get some page fault, and I didn't want to bother with looking up all the correct MmioWhitelist entries. CPU-PLUG.aml is actually CPU-PLUG-DRTNIA as the kernel didn't seem to like the path-corrected DSDTTime one.

Oh, and yes, the Russian language plist key is still there. I speak Russian so I didn't bother changing it.

I technically have an EFI partition on a 10.15.4 that boots just fine, but I couldn't track down the Clover instructions I used last time, and just used an Olarila zip for X99, thinking it would work well enough for a C612 board. Problem is, surprise surprise, it's hot garbage. Random dialog boxes stuck halfway through their opening animations, GUI lagging behind one click in a number of apps, menubar clock freezing from time to time, so on and so forth. So, naturally, I decided to work from first principles on an OpenCore install.
