[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:

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.

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.
