Could not read \EFI\ invalid parameter

When i try to boot into OpenCore, the list only shows NO NAME, and when i go into that it shows 5 errors

Could not read \EFI\ invalid parameter could not find boot options: invalid parameter start_image() returned invalid parameter OC: Boot Failed - invalid parameter OCB: StartImage Failed - invalid parameter

Im trying to boot from my USB where I have triple checked everything, from all my folders, to my bios settings, reformatted and remounted the USB several times, tried different USBs, re-did the EFI folder twice. my hardware is listed as compatible (i7-4790, AMD RX570). Tried doing it on and off ethernet. What am I doing wrong?

Can your graphic card be fully occupied when you do geekbench 5 test?

Hi, All. I am a newbie here and I noticed when I do the geekbech5, the graphic card is merely used. What is it for? My card is Rx6600, do I miss something.

Below are my environment and devices: MacOS 12.5 Montery Graphic Card: ASUS RX 6600 8G CPU: I5 - 12400F Motherboard: H610M - A Intel card: Intel AX201

In addition, my also tested my MacBook Air M1, and noticed that the graphic card usage is normal.

BootCamp Struggles

BootCamp Struggles

I followed the OpenCore guide on getting bootcamp set up down to the letter, however I’m getting an “OCB: StartImage failed - Already Started” when trying to boot the BootCamp

My Windows and MacOS are on two separate drives each with their own EFI partitions. One called System (Windows) and EFI (MacOS). I’ve tried moving the Microsoft boot files to the MacOS partition and “BlessOverride”Ing in the config.plist, it but it gives the same error. I don’t know what else to do to get it to work. Any tips /ideas

Some additional information, I’ve set up FileVault if that influences anything? Idk

[AMD] CLI tool to get current power and frequency

I personally don't use the native macOS top bar, thus the AMDPowerGadget does nothing for me. I created this small CLI to extract the same metrics. Here is an example output. json { "power": 42.80278396606445, "temperature": 50.66667175292969, "max-frequencie": 4199.59033203125, "mean-frequencie": 4188.42919921875 }

Asus X299 - Support

This thread is meant to be a continuation of kgp's original post for users using ASUS X299 motherboards. The goal is to keep the support for these motherboards alive, publish updates, configurations, hardware, and so on.

I'd like to thank @kgp for his effort so far and hope he'll be back in the future! I wish him all the best.

Updating El Capitan to at least High Sierra

Hi all,

My current music studio PC is getting too old to run certain plugins and software. The choice is to buy a new machine (but funds are limited currently) or updating. Before diving in to all possible and relevant howtos, I was simply wondering if it is just a matter of cloning the system drive to another disk for backup and running the OSX update function? Should I expect some (or a lot) of hickups, or will it be relatively painless? If it requires me to spend days on it, I suppose...
