OpenCore flash drive died; how to reproduce?

I'm an idiot: I set up my hackintosh awhile ago and everything's been chugging along well. So well, in fact, that I never got around to copying the flash drive over to the hard drive.

And now the flash drive has died. Completely unreadable on any system. Yeah, I'm an idiot. I knew better; this isn't even my first hackintosh!

Anyway, I'm wondering if there's an easy way to recreate the flash drive without having to reinstall (or otherwise mess with) the main SSD. I have pretty much all of the kexts I used backed up together, and other Mac systems to work off of.

Photos of the build

Hi everyone. This is my new iMac20,2. I needed to finally replace my 2010 Mac Pro 5,1. Although it was a beast it was time to retire her. I almost jumped on the new MacBook Pro with the M1 max, but I am a heavy gamer and need to be able to dual boot windows.

It was surprisingly more challenging to install than I had anticipated it would’ve been. I had OC on the 5,1 and that was a breeze. I had followed the Dortania guide for Comet Lake to a Tee and I guess it’s not fully updated.

My issues seem to have come down to incorrect bios setting. After crying for help from fellow hackintoshers here (btw you guys are awesome) and googling for days, I stumbled across this post on tonymacx86 of a user who had similar issues. I followed their bios settings line by line plus instruction on my efi from u/enigmahack and SUCCESS!!!.

What’s not working: My sleep/wake. Screens stays off. But I may need to redo the usbmap.

BT mouse and keyboard are shaky at best.

And I get get American Megatrends safe POST. I’ve initiated the disable rtc and added the base Args but still on going. It Does this with boot camp switch but still automatically switches Mac and windows through the EFI boot picker.

What’s working: Handoff/airdrop, asus xc100c Ethernet with patch. Boot camp switch which is surprising. iServices work well.

Stable other than when switching boots.

Overall I’m excited to work this new machine for the next few years.

Should I do it?

Hi. I bought a new PC, i use it for browsing the web, edit videos, songs and play games. Now i have windows 11 on it. Should I switch to macOS? My PC has these specs:

Intel Core i5 10300H, up to 4.5 GHz

16 gigs of RAM

Two GPUs, an Intel UHD 630 and a 1650Ti, that i know i would disable.

But the thing is, should I do it? i want to try macOS, but i know i feel better with windows, but a VM doesn't give me the experience of a real Mac. And, my wifi card isn't supported, only the Ethernet one. So, should I do this, erase my disk and install? or keep windows? remember that i have Forza horizon 5 installed on the PC and it takes 100 GB, and i have a 10mbps wifi so it could take a little to redownload.

Unable to hackintosh Lenovo laptop

Hello there, I don't post here much but I'm literally unable to hackintosh my Lenovo laptop (Lenovo Ideapad 110-15isk. I've tried both Clover and OpenCore, and even then I can get the macOS recovery to boot. I did get to some results with OpenCore but at the end it says "Attempting system reboot" or sometimes, and then it reboots. I've tried 3 times and checked 4 times my config.plist file each time and eventual settings in the BIOS. I have no idea what to do anymore. Can someone tell me or link me to a good guide to install macOS on this laptop?

Help to install OSX Mojave on ASRock H61M-VS

Hi there guys)) I need help in installing my first ever desktop Hackintosh... Previously I had Big Sur on my Dell Latitude E7270... but now I've bought a used desktop with motherboard AsRock H61M-VS with Intel Core i5-3570 (Ivy Bridge), 4GB RAM, and GTX 760 2GB installed... I have only 8GB flash drive so decided to install Mojave for the start... I'm planning to upgrade to Big Sur as it still supports Kepler GPUs... I can't find any EFI setup for this motherboard. After some research in dortania's OpenCore Install and configuration guide, I've collected all necessary kexts and patches, configured fresh config.plist and etc. .. Downloaded latest Mojave installer with GibMacOs script... after booting to OpenCore boot menu and selecting MacOS Installer it shows " End SetConsoleMode" and restarts the whole system (reboot loop)... so I need you guys to help me if it is possible))) I'll attach my folder for you to analyze... Thank you very much for any help)))

Here is my EFI folder drive link:

Can't get past login screen after first cold start

After upgrading from HS to Mojave I've been experiencing this issue: stuck at login screen after cold start with the power button. No keyboard/mouse input (at Clover 5099 OS selection menu - macOS/Win - everything works fine). After hard reset (that is, pressing the RESET button) the login screen might work OK, might not. In this case I'de have to repeat the RESET procedure 3-4 times before I could login properly.

Same might happen at random after system restart: either stuck at login after...

Stuck at considerRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel

Hi, I'm trying to boot High Sierra in a Alienware Alpha R1, I don't know why it gets stuck there, after surfing the web some post suggest that its related to the graphics card, this PC has a GTX 860M which is not supported, so I'm using the iGPU on the i5-4690 (hd 4600), in the Hackintosh discord they told me to use ssdts for laptops since the hardware resembles one,

This is verbose text:

Windows 10 can't read GPT formatting

I formatted an external drive in MacOS as ExFAt-GUID, and windows 10 doesn't initiate the drive when plugged in. In disk management all options to assign drive letters are greyed out. Only the option to turn the 'basic' disk into an 'active' one is available, but for fear of data corruption I decided not to touch it.

But if formatted as ExFAT-MBR Win10 has no problems seeing it.

Does windows have difficulty reading drives partitioned via GPT?

2k 4k Video playback in Hackintosh

Hi Guys,

I am having a High Sierra Hackintosh with my gtx 970 GPU. I have enabled full GPU Acceleration. I have a 2k Monitor with this setup.

If i am playing a 1080p movie, its working fine. But if i play a 2k/4k movie, the video playback is very sluggish and choppy. All movie files are from local SSD drive.

If i upgrade my Gtx 970 with AMD Rx6800xt, will it helps the 2k movie playback or it will still be the same.

Can some one who uses the recent AMD gpu can give some pointers.

* Motherboard/Laptop model : Lenovo G510

* Audio Codec : Conexant

i've followed opencore haswell laptop guide , i booted the usb and i had internet issues while mac was downloading , gave me download error and after that my usb never booted , once it gave me load image failed , i got it fixed then i got suck in the verbose with hid legacy shim 2 and then i got stuck in acpi error ae not found
btw i have securebootmodel on default and secureboot disabled in bios , i followed every aspect of guide and specifics for monterey mentioned and the downfall started after the download error

is haswell support dropped ? if it is , is there a way to kinda bypass it . also i feel confused using opencore guide as there is always difference between pictures and the comments under them (eventhough i relied completely on comments as they mentioned in the start of the guide) so i might need some help setting the efi , would be appreciated

***forgot to mention that i've formated usb and redone everything from scratch and still got same last acpi error ae not found
