KP/PCI/BL | X99A-II 6800K GTX660 | OC

Short Flex: I have installed OC on my Lenovo E590, everything is working besides battery indicator and bluetooth. itlwm was performing better when it was configured using a text editor and not HeliPort. Got it working using the Titus OpenCore guide plus builds / EFI clones for the E480/490/580.

Moving on. Been losing my mind. Let's just

  • CPU: i7 6800K
  • GPU: Geforce GTX 660 (GK106)
  • RAM: 2x8 GB G.Skill Ripjaw
  • Motherboard/Laptop model: ASUS X99A II (rev1.03)
  • Audio Codec: Realtek however, not required due to USB DAC.
  • Ethernet Card: Intel I218x
  • Wifi/BT Card: Asus PCE-AC68
  • What guide/tool followed:
  • What part I got an issue with:
    • Just booting! OpenCore / Clover runs fine but OS X recovery:
      • freezes at PCI configuration begin and fails to progress
      • some kind of kernel panic
      • EndRandomSeed / EXITBS
    • [1] is the main guide I followed with regards to my hardware. I wanted to follow the last one (X99A2+6800K+GTX980TI) as that is almost identical to my rig, but would prefer to stay with OpenCore.
      • KGP has provided the relevant SSDT files here but I don't understand what / how to use those.
    • [2] appears to be useful... but I don't know how to put any of the data enclosed in code/quotes into ProperTree.
      • I found a small section in Dortania advising to use a text editor as a hack-y solution which took me right to where I am now.
  • What files/config I am using: last used config.plist
  • Extra Info: I feel like KGP has made it really simple but it's not making any sense to me. I have already disabled CFG-lock as per all of those threads lol
    • The config.plist I have pasted is the latest one, and results in a panic on my system. This one is vanilla, with everything downloaded / compiled / tested in the last 10 hours.
    • Oh yeah I have also tried using npci, alcid, and nvidia related boot arguments to no avail

Lastly. Clover would be fine but if it's being phased out, I'd prefer to find a solution on the superior platform.
