[Success] Z370M Plus II - Fix Shutdown Issue - Opencore

A while back an old issue returned when upgrading from Catalina/Clover r5119 to Big Sur/OC 0.7.9 on the Z370M Plus II board*

This issue may apply to other Z370 boards - the system does not fully shutdown (power LED light stays on) on shutdown.

In Clover there is a simply "FixShutdown" key that can be set to True and worked well on this board:

Gigabyte X299X - Catalina Support

Hello everyone,

As some of you know, I have been lurking around to make the new X299X boards (Gigabyte) work, unsuccessful at it, but trying nevertheless.

On the hardware side these are the specs of the build:

Gigabyte Designare EX 10G
Intel i9 10900X
128GB DDR4 3200 Mhz Crucial Ballistix
1200W BeQuiet! PurePower
And other bits, but the important is here.

Trials have been made with Clover v5100 and Catalina 10.15.2 previously installed, the reason because I have...

Install macOS Ventura on PC


The next version of the Mac operating system -- currently available as a Public Beta -- is macOS 13 "Ventura". Guides to install this version of the macOS on PCs include:

macOS Ventura Beta USB Installation - A quick guide to create a USB installer for macOS Ventura alongside the OpenCore and Clover bootloaders from tonymacx86. The site covers the macOS Ventura Public Beta Updates, too.

macOS Ventura Beta on PC - A basic guide to install macOS Ventura on an Intel or AMD PC using OpenCore from newcomer EliteMacx86.

macOS Ventura Beta on Unsupported Mac - A guide to install macOS Ventura on an older Mac using Hackintosh methods from TechsViewer.

macOS Ventura Beta Upgrade from Monterey - A Reddit reader report documenting the successful upgrade of a PC previously running macOS Monterey to macOS Ventura.

Note that formal hardware support for macOS Ventura (macOS 13) is more limited than its predecessor, macOS Monterey (macOS 12), and some features are restricted to official Macs with the latest Apple Silicon processors. Verify hardware compatibility before upgrading an older Hackintosh to this version of the macOS or buying hardware for a new one.

macOS install to USB memory stick possible?

macOS install to USB memory stick possible?

macOS install to USB memory stick possible?

I have tried to install macOS to a USB memory stick without sucess so far.

It went to panic.

The attached is a photo of the panic.

It seems AppleAHCIDiskDriver is the cause,

so I guess dealing with memory stick is the problem.

Do we need a special attention for installing macOS to a USB memory stick?

Thank you very much!

Have a nice weekend :)


OpenCore 0.8.4

macOS 12.6 Monterey.

USB Memory Stick:

128GB Samsung SDXC with a non-brand USB adaptor.

Install media has experience to successfully install macOS to an internal SATA drive.

USBMap has been done.

It goes to very close to a successful install.

  1. Install media has no problem to install macOS installer to the memory stick.
  2. macOS installer has no problem to boot and finish it.
  3. 2nd macOS installer boot and its process done successfully.
  4. 1st macOS boot and settings are done.
  5. the last and 2nd macOS boot ends with a panic above.

I gave tries several times and it always ended here.

Disabling Turbo Boost

I've disabled turbo boost on bios of my intel cpu. But my hackintosh doesn't apply this setting. Is there any way to disable turbo boost with opencore?

I know there are some 3rd party apps but i wanna do this natively.

Did I set my config incorrectly?

When I booted up the USB, it said "OC: Configuration requires vault but no vault provided!" Is it because I did not set it up correctly? Here are the specs...

Best Free Partition Editor to edit EFI partition?

Which one is the best free partition editor for resizing EFI partition?

(It is one of preparations before you install macOS to your windows

PC, in order to make it dual boot of macOS and windows.)

Background of this question:

  1. miniTool is very good to resize and move NTFS partition,

but it does not allow to manipulate EFI partition unless you buy a license.

  1. gparted is bad to resize EFI partition somehow.

my experience says it is unstalbe in terms of touching EFI partiion.

eg. it often finishes in the middle of resizing with errors.

(It is really scary that you have an error when you touch a disk

partition, you know.)

It finishes without errors several times; BUT!

gparted refresh indicates the size was changed successfully.

when it moves to disk utility (of macOS installer), the size of EFI partition has not been changed.

Conclusion: DON'T USE gparted for this purpose.

  1. So I am currently using gdisk method several times without problems.

This method is bascially a re-creation method;

a. make a copy of the content of the partition

b. erase the EFI parttion.

c. recreate it again with your intended size.

d. move back the contents of the partition to the newly created partition.

I thought it was great even though this method somehow erase "Windows

Boot Manager" entry from Bios. You can still make a dual boot by OC

picker. That was my first thought. BUT!

Now I found a problem; namely OC patches ACPI before you choose a

boot OS with OC Picker, which means OC may effect your windows boot.

Ideally OC things should be enclosed in OC only and then it does

not effect outside of OC.

Thank you very much!

Have a nice weekend :)


I am wondering why and how this "Windows Boot Manager" entry disappered from

BIOS menu...? I would like to get it back...
