Move/create copy of hackintosh from one ssd to another

I got a new NVME 1tb ssd to replace my current SATA 500gb ssd, but I want to move my whole hackintosh Catalina OS and files from the old to new one and make the new one bootable, what's the best way to do it? Time Machine backup? or something else?
Please help!

BIOS vs OC dual-booting Windows

Hi awesome Hackintoshers!

I would install Big Sur on SSD1 via Open Core and Windows 10 on SSD2. I would be using macOS 99.99% of the time but just want the other OS for casual gaming once in a while.

A fellow Redditor in this community suggested me to not dual boot using Open Core and just use BIOS. So here are my questions:

• If I just use BIOS boot option, then do I need to install UEFI Windows or install just normally?

• Would you advise to use Open Core? If so, why?*

• Should I install macOS first or Windows first? If I have separate drives, does it really matter?

*I personally like BIOS boot. Why? I'd just select the default boot to be macOS so I don't have to choose every time. And when I need Windows, I'd just choose during the BIOS boot up.

Thank you and stay safe :)

First Timer! OC 0.6.4 Catalina Build (i7 9700k, RX 580, Z390)

First Timer! OC 0.6.4 Catalina Build (i7 9700k, RX 580, Z390)

Audio Production/Mixing workhorse with occasional gaming. Finally letting my early 2013 MacBook Pro rest.

Hit a couple walls following install guides geared towards my specs and decided to do some extra research and follow the dortania guide expecting for some extra post-install tweaking.

HOWEVER. Out of the gate, I've got thunderbolt 3 devices up and running, Sleep is working, No DRM Issues, No audio issues.. I'm still setting it up the way I like it but this isn't normal right?? Part of me feels stoked but the other part of me is nervous somethings gonna break and this shouldn't have been so straight forward..

Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7 9700k

Graphics: Radeon RX 580

Storage: Kingston 500 GB x2 (One For Windows, One For Catalina)

Ram: 64 GB G.SKill Ripjaws v Series DDR4 3200

Motherboard: Gigabyte Designaire Z390

OS Version: Catalina 10.15.5

Bootloader: OpenCore 0.6.4

*Super thankful for this community, I learned a ton lurking on posts here and I'm stoked to be posting a success story.

First Benchmark score and proof my UAD Thunderbolt devices are working.

Need advice for dual boot windows/Mac OS for music prod. and game streaming

Well its right there in the title. I've never built a pc before but ive always wanted one for gaming. Now im working at a recording studio and I want a PC that runs windows for gaming/streaming and Mac OS for protools. Then my buddy told me to build a hackintosh but didn't really give much more info. The problem is I don't know much about computer components yet but im doing as much research as I can. My question is, has anyone built something like this before and can give me some insight and advice to take into consideration when choosing my parts? I would love for it to run as silent as possible and easily run the virtual instruments and plugins. If its possible to keep it as close to $1000, that'd be great because I still need to buy a monitor, keyboard, etc, but I don't mind investing a little more.

Nvidia GPU for windows & AMD GPU for Mac?

Was wondering if I can run a Amd card and a Nvidia card on the same pc and use them for different OS. Nvidia card for windows and AMD for Mac since my 2070 isn’t Mac supported.

And yes I know I would have to switch the cables from card do card depending on which OS I boot into. Or use dp for one and hdmi for one and just switch input on monitor

Is a Lenovo P17 hackintosh-able?

This all stems from the fact I can’t render a ProRes file from Resolve on a PC.

Thought a good work around is to install Ubuntu because I’ve rendered ProRes files from Resolve off of Linux at work. Unfortunately you need a dongle that is only supplied with 30k panels. So that’s a no go...

My last resort is MacOS. Wanted to see if I can possibly do a dual (or tri) boot with MacOS. Is my Lenovo P17 even capable of doing something like this?

Let me know what you guys think, Thanks!

Could not upgrade from Catalina to BigSur

Sucessfully installed Catalina to my Lenovo Legion Y7000P with Open Core 0.6.4. Try to upgrade to Big Sur from Mac OS. It downloads the Big Sur installer, ask for reboot.

Once reboot, I select the Mac OS install option, it stuck at the apple logo with progress bar at 5%.

Do I need to do anything special for Big Sur update?

Also I tried to download the Big Sur recovery image to USB EFI folder directly with python script as in the open core installation guide. But it seems that Apple removed Big Sur recovery. I got Catalina version.

https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/installer-guide/winblows-install.html#downloading-macos

# Latest version # ie. Big Sur(11) python macrecovery.py -b Mac-E43C1C25D4880AD6 -m 00000000000000000 download # Note, Apple has temporarily removed Big Sur from the Recovery Catalog # Expect Apple to resolve this sometime after the holidays 

Thanks.

Anyone install on X220 thinkpad with opencore?

Hey guys,

I have an X220 thinkpad running high sierra using the popular mcdonnelltech guide with clover.

I've been plagued with a UI freeze/crash issue and I'm curious if reinstalling using opencore may solve the problem.

I haven't been able to find much about opencore + x220 thinkpads. Is this HW simply too old? Has anyone gotten it to work?

Thanks,

I think I'm missing bootloader details

Hey all,

I'm sorry for not posting the entire spread of my system in my first post, but it's not relevant to what I'm having trouble with. At the moment I've followed this guide -- https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/ -- and am at the point of attempting to boot to my usb drive to attempt to start the install. I have used the bios to set the boot drive to not one, but two different usb drives, both of which do not boot and it just fails back to windows. I just recently disabled to securestart setting in the bios and all it does is throw an OCS error when one or both of the USB drives are installed, the windows volume boots normally.

So I'm quite certain I've screwed up the EFI setting somehow but I have followed the guide line for line so I would really appreciate any help or suggestions that anyone could offer.

Thats pretty much It!

I can't link my EFI due to the rules and since not all EFI will work with your config. You will have to make your own with the Dortania Guide which i will link below.

How to solve Err(0xE) (and it is not the one in the Opencore documentation)

Hi all. I 've for a couple of days trying to install Big Sur in a System that is formed by:

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0

CPU: AMD FX-8350

GPU: RADEON RX 400

Trying to install: Big Sur

Using: Opencore 0.6.4

RAM: 16Gb

HD to install: SSD Samsung EVO 860 500Gb

I've been following several tutorials, but in particular here are the instructions to install Big Sur in an AMD FX system like mine, however a different GPU is used and probably also the motherboard. Anyway, I'm using same SSDT, drivers (openCanopy, openRuntime and VBoxHfs) and Kexts. During the process I found various errors that I could solve with other posts info, but I can not manage to install it and I suspect it is related with the error Err(0xE). I know there is a reference to this error but doesn't look like is the same as the one I have.

Here is an excerpt from the Opencore installation log where the error appears for the first time:

00:797 00:030 AAPL: #[EB.H.LV|!] Err(0xE) <- RT.GV boot-signature 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 00:828 00:030 AAPL: #[EB|WL] 0 0 0x01 0x01 23 0x0E 00:859 00:030 AAPL: #[EB.H.LV|!] Err(0xE) <- RT.GV boot-image-key 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 00:890 00:030 AAPL: #[EB|WL] 0 0 0x01 0x01 24 0x0E 00:921 00:030 AAPL: #[EB.H.LV|!] Err(0xE) <- RT.GV boot-image 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 00:952 00:031 AAPL: #[EB.H.LV|!] Err(0xE) <- RT.SV- boot-signature 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 00:983 00:031 AAPL: #[EB.H.LV|!] Err(0xE) <- RT.SV- boot-image-key 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 01:051 00:067 AAPL: #[EB.H.LV|!] Err(0xE) <- RT.SV- boot-image 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 

I'm getting mad since can't figure out why this error happens so all help is welcome. Thanks a million.

Disabling my Sapphire GPU lights?

I never installed windows, and I’d like to disable the LEDs to my video card “SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 5700 XT”. I don’t know a lot about this card other than that it’s overpowered for Adobe and that I was high on hackintoshing and quarantine funds while getting no advice from friends until after I bought everything.

Anyway, The only tips I’ve seen via Google require installing windows applications. And I’d rather just take electrical tape to the light emitting areas. The lights are visible from where I sleep and that’s a no no.

Need help applying the shutdown fix in OpenCore 6.4

I have a working Hackintosh with OpenCore 6.4 and latest Mac OS Big Sur. I fixed most of the issues except this shutdown thing. My pc won't shutdown properly. I have narrowed the issue to the point that I figured that the usb controller responsible for turning off the system won't turn off.

I followed this guide https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Post-Install/usb/misc/shutdown.html

but I can't seem to find the correct usb controller. to edit the FixShutdown-USB-SSDT.dsl

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to change the CPU name under the "About this Mac" section in macOS Big Sur?

Using 2 GPU, one for Hackintosh one for Windows with OC ?

So with all these new cards releases, although the price is all over the place right now, I'm considering replacing my vega 56 with newer cards, one for gaming (3060 Ti at this point, but hopefully next year price would be better for higher cards) and cheap one for hackintosh (rx 570?).

Specs are : Ryzen 5 3600, MSI X570 gaming plus, Vega 56 Red Devil (beast of a card), 32 gb RAM. Currently running OC 6.3 on latest Big Sur. It's running like a champ.

My plan is to have the 3060 Ti in first PCI slot (for higher performance) and RX 570 in 3rd PCI slot (since 3060 Ti most likely cover 2 slot).

My understanding is that I can spoof the 1st PCI slot (hide it) by using this guide : dortania - Disabling GPU

Hopefully it will hide the 1st PCI slot and Opencore can just use the 3rd PCI slot? Is it that easy or am I missing something? Anyone have experience with this?

Cheers.

Windows -> macOS remote desktop - can it be emulated just as good as Windows -> Windows?

So I've just installed Big Sur in a VM on my unRAID server. Works flawlessly and iCloud/iMessage works as well.

My problem is, I want a somewhat similar experience doing remote desktop into the server, as I would if I use native RDP in Windows, when I connect to another Windows machine. My Windows/daily driver setup consists of 3 monitors (4K, 2.5K, and 2K), but if I remote desktop into a Windows laptop with only a single 1080p monitor, it automatically emulates 3 monitors for me, exactly like it is in my daily driver Windows setup.

However, I have not gotten that to work when doing Windows -> macOS. I have enabled GPU passthrough and removed VNC in virt manager, so I need to have a monitor attached to my unRAID server's graphics card, in order to get a resolution.

Is it true there is no alternative method out there? Preferably I would love to run the server completely headless, but I do have some HDMI 4K dummies/emulators coming soon, if I really need to use those.

I just want my 3 monitors on my Windows setup to show a macOS desktop with 3 monitors as well.
