Trying to copy EFI into a partition, without any success

Trying to copy EFI into a partition, without any success

Hello guys,

I'm following this guide How to install macOS Big Sur , but I get stuck when I have to copy the EFI folder into the partition, because I'm not allowed to copy it.

NOTE: I'm not used an external USB, but an external mini HDD (shouldn't be the same thing?)

Any idea why I'm not able to copy the EFI?

USB3 not working, even with port map, on otherwise perfect Big Sur Clean install on OC

I performed a clean install (and post install time machine backup) of Big Sur 11.5.2 with OpenCore on a machine I had previously running with Mojave and Clover. Everything seems to work perfectly apart from the USB3 ports which seem to not be working/detected with any USB device, but do show up in hackintool and system report. The devices and ports work under Windows and my old Mojave install.

I used a (now slightly modified) EFI specifically designed for my board by a maintainer...

Is OpenCore 0.7.2 support Monterey beta 7? I tried with OC 0.7.4 but can't boot, maybe missing something, cause I follow guide 0.7.2 (this time is newest guide)

Bypass NVidea GPU, but using its HDMI output, how to do it?

I'm trying to install Mac OS Big Sur on my pc (i7 7700k, z270 chipset, UHD 630 and gtx 970), but I'm facing a problem. I don't want to use MB HDMI output, because I need windows dual boot and needing to change the output from MB to GTX and vice-versa every single time isn't worth on my workflow (I also have a real Mac, so, I do not really need the hackintosh). There is a way to use my iGPU to process graphics but maintaining the dGPU as the output on this hackintosh?

Can anyone recommend a dual port 1GbE NIC?

I'd like to to use link aggregation and unfortunately one of the ports on my motherboard doesn't seem to be supported in a bond. Can anyone recommend a PCIe dual port 1GbE network adapter that works either out of the box or with an available kext?

Hackintosh with older version

Planning to hackintosh my Lenovo E73 desktop (8GB, Core i5 4th Gen, 256GB SSD). Looks like I will be stuck with Catalina for sometime as the BigSur is not supported. How many of you stay with older Mac versions? How has been your experience over years? What are the typical cons I can expect?

Cannot use GTX 970 with iGPU Intel HD 530

Hi at all! I'm trying to install macOS Catalina on my PC. I have already installed macOS successfully. I can boot normally.

The only thing is that I cannot manage to use my GTX 970 as passthrough and my HD530 as headless. Is this even possible? From what I read from OpenCore guide, it's possible to do so.

I see my graphics adapter being the GTX 970 in macOS (but without drivers, I see low resolution and 5 MB of VRAM), so this is an error. It should be the HD530, I think.

With Hackintool, I can see both my dGPU and iGPU being recognized correctly in macOS.

In BIOS I have enabled IGD Multi-Monitor, with 128MB of shared memory and PEG being the main adapter, since my PC has both Windows and macOS.

I dGPU is not usable as passthrough, should I disable completely all GPU except the HD530, and connect the HDMI cable from the motherboard to my monitor when using macOS? There are some alternatives?

Thanks in advance!

ASUS TUF B560m-PLUS Gaming Wifi Intel i7-10700 UHD 630 Graphics

Hello I have olaria Catalina installed on my PC and I have been trying to get the iGPU (Intel UHD 630 Graphics) working for months since the graphic card I have (GTX 1050 Ti) is not supported after High Sierra and my CPU is only compatible from Catalina. I would like to know that if installing Big Sur will fix the graphic problem. And if it does do I have to uninstall the current hackintosh I have or do I have to only install olaria Big Sur because that's what shows up on my boot screen?

VoodooHDA prefpane extension error

VoodooHDA prefpane extension error

Hello! I successfully updated to macOS Big Sur today from Mojave via System Preferences. Since my audio codec is unsupported, I used VoodooHDA instead back on Mojave with the prefpane extension.

Now, on Big Sur, when I try loading the prefpane extension for the actual kext to work, this comes up:

Preferences Error: Could not load VoodooHDA preference pane.

System specifications can be found here:

M1 Mac installer for X86 Laptop

I want to know if it's possible to create and use a bootable installer from a M1 mac to a X86 laptop for hackintosh, or the difference of architecture will not allow it to be done, and I have to source it from a X86 Mac.

Big Sur installation in RecoveryOS stuck on 13/12 minutes remaining

CPU: Intel i7-10875H
GPU: RTX 3080 (disabled for obvious reasons)
RAM: 32 GB 2933 MHz DDR4
Motherboard/Laptop Make and Model: Razer Blade 15 Advanced (early 2021)
Audio Codec: Realtek 298
Ethernet Card: None
Wifi/BT Card: Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX210 160 MHz
Touchpad and touch display devices: I2C Touchpad
BIOS revision: 1.03

I used Dortania's OpenCore guide and I tried to build my own EFI (did not boot at all). I then stole some kexts and config file from a successful hackintosh with identical specs and made some edits (serial number etc.). The machine successfully booted to RecoveryOS. As expected, touchpad and wifi did not work but that's not a huge problem. I understand that someone else's EFI might not work on my machine despite having identical specs but that's the only way I have gotten my machine to boot.


When installing Big Sur via RecoveryOS, the installer freezes once the estimated time reaches 13 or 12 minutes remaining. I tried the common troubleshooting steps such as resetting the NVRAM but to no avail. When I checked the installation log, nothing appears to be halting the install. I've been trying for over a week now and I still cannot find a solution to the issue. I am having trouble finding this issue online and I'm beginning to lose some patience after being at this for a week. I would appreciate any help! I'm still a rookie!

Safari / graphics card crashes


I have a machine that I've slowly been able to get working really well, apart from this one thing-
fairly regularly a page in Safari will refuse to load with 'Safari web content quit unexpectedly'
Often I can get the page to load if I keep trying, but it's getting annoying.
If anyone can suggest where to look, I'd be grateful, can probably fix it myself...

Actually it looks like I have a problem with 'VDA Decoder failed'
But I can't figure out what to do- is this telling me the built in Intel Graphics 630 isn't working?

Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master
Intel i9- 8 core 3.6GHz
