[SOLVED] No USB after macOS 11.3.1 Update

I can't get it to work here. Kills all my usb ports. I then reinstalled my 11.2.1 version and generated a usbports.kext and placed that in my efi and in my efi on efi usb drive and tried to update but it again killed all my usb ports. What am I missing? (I'm in no way an usb port expert)

[HELP NEEDED] [kernel panic] MSI GF63 Thin 10SCXR - Booting into BigSur Installer!

[HELP NEEDED] [kernel panic] MSI GF63 Thin 10SCXR - Booting into BigSur Installer!

Can't boot into the Big Sur installer. Got a kernel panic

I'm trying to Hackintosh my MSI GF63 Thin 10SCXR laptop with Opencore and I followed Dortania's OpenCore Install Guide to create the USB installer. But After selecting the installer from OpenCore's picker, I got a kernel panic when booting into the installer. (I checked the troubleshooting section in Dortania's guide but I couldn't find a solution for the issue)

Here you can find my EFI & log files:


  • CPU: Intel Core i7-10750H Comet Lake (HM470)
  • GPU: iGPU (Intel UHD Graphics 630), Nvidia GTX 1650 MaxQ (disabled)
  • RAM: 8 GB (stock)
  • Motherboard Model/Laptop Model: MS-16R4 / MSI GF63 Thin 10SCXR
  • WiFi/BT: Intel WiFi 6 AX201 160MHz / Bluetooth® 5.1
  • Ethernet: Realtek RTL8168/8111 Gigabit Ethernet
  • Audio: Built-in, ALC 233
  • Touchpad: Stock I2C-HID touchpad

My previous desktop builds were done with clover and had to stick with High sierra due to Nvidia graphics. This is my first experience with both Opencore and a laptop.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me with this!!!

What hurdles would I have to jump to boot Windows, macOS and Linux off the same system?

The plan for the PC I want to build is to have a 500GB NVME SSD for Windows and a 1TB SATA SSD, with two 500GB partitions for macOS and Linux. Would this be possible? Would having the OSes on a mix of different drives and partitions cause problems with OpenCore?

Dual-Booting Ubuntu and Catalina

Hello everyone. I have compiled my EFI folder to have all the kexts and everything I need, and I'm ready to start installation. I have partitioned me 1TB drive into a 400GB partition for Ubuntu (already installed) and 600GB for Catalina. My question is what do I need to do to the EFI partition that is already on my drive? I also have Grub bootloader installed, if that changes anything. I'd like to get grub removed to only have MacOS boot, and the option to boot ubuntu in the BIOS. Thanks in advance.

Can I even make a hackintosh with a ryzen laptop?

Hi, I'm new, and I understand that setting up a hackintosh takes a lot of time. I just wanted to know if I could even do it before I go through all the effort. For the OpenCore install guide, it says under the AMD CPU section that laptop CPUs are not supported. Is there a way to make my laptop into a hackintosh? Any link to a guide can be useful for me. If it's not possible (or at least not possible for a beginner), it's fine, I'd just like to know.

would you please check my EFI or at least the config.plist?

Hello, I'm a newbie here and made my EFI according to OC guide. but there was some points that I wasn't sure. Regarding that I'm going to Format my SSD and delete the Windows, I'm worried about it because if the problems be severe, I won't have any OS on this laptop and it will become so hard to continue on other laptops to fix my files.

so PLEASE help me to make sure that there isn't a serious mistake in my files.

I was considering to keep the Windows, but there wasn't a guide for installing macOS on the same SSD beside the Windows pre installed! (in the OC guide)

My EFI folder on Google Drive:

Edit: Specs:

  • CPU: INTEL i5-1035G1 (with Intel UHD graphics)
  • GPU: NVIDIA Geforce Mx330 (wich is not supported as I know)
  • RAM: 8 GB DDR4
  • Motherboard/Laptop model: Dell Vostro 5401
  • Audio Codec: Realtek ALC3204 (as in the guide it's not real and I saw somewhere it is the ALC236)
  • Ethernet Card: RTL8111
  • Wifi/BT Card: Qualcomm QCA61x4A (DW1820)

No signal when plugging in HDMI after booting

I have an Inspiron 7586 with an Intel Core i7-8565U and integrated UHD620 (Whiskey Lake) graphics.

If I boot macOS before plugging an external display into the HDMI port, when I plug in the display, all I get is a no signal message. Strangely enough, macOS detects the display and acts as if it's connected - it shows up in system settings, and I can move windows and the mouse onto it.

force-online is enabled in the device properties. Without it, I need to turn my screen off and on again after booting for macOS to detect it.

Additionally, my connectors are mapped correctly.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

My OpenCore config.plist is available on GitHub.

Big Sur gtx 760 trouble

Anyone having issues with gtx 760 on Big Sur? I know the drivers are supposed to be natively supported but given how old the gpu is, has anyone else had issues? I’ve had a perfectly running hack, but as of two days ago the whole system is unusable. It keeps turning black looking for a new display. It works fine on windows/Linux but not Mac anymore. I’ve tried swapping ports and cables to no avail. Anyone experienced this or have tips to try and solve it?

AppleALC not loading, macOS Big Sur 11.3.1

I first tried to change the layout-id as I thought it was the problem (didn't work), then I tried to update Lilu, WhateverGreen and AppleALC to avoid conflicts (?) but it still didn't load. Thanks for any help, my computer uses Conexant CX20751 so it should work.

Here's the config.plist btw:

Low 5950x score? Could I compare scores to see if these numbers seem right for the 5950x on 11.3.1? Ty!! This is on the x570 Taichi.

Big Sur VM in unRaid. iMessage not working.


I have spent hours trying to get iMessage to work.

I used space invaders one's video and macinabox docker image to install Big Sur without an issue.

The VM works great. Not fast cause I don't have a big cpu or lots of RAM, but:
- i can browse the web inside the VM
- i can log in to the App Store on the VM and install apps.

When I try to sign in to iMessages I get:
"an unkown error has occurred."

I have tried to generate serial and uuid and all that.

Using OpenCore configurator I am confused with the tabs at the top (Datahub generic and SMBIOS). Is what's on the SMBIOS tab what matters?

Ethernet shows as "en0," but not "builtin." I don't understand dortania's instructions as to how exactly to apply nullethernet. I HAVE tried.

Mac address. I read different opinions. Do I need to make up a mac address or use the one that shows up in the vm under system preferences>network>advanced>hardware.
And do I apply that mac address in config.plist open in propertree?

My unraid box is a modest Dell 3847 with 16GB of ram and a Intel Core i5 (4th Gen) 4440 / 3.1 GHz CPU.

I'm willing to pay an expert to remote into my VM and help me with this.

Thank you!
