Optiplex 3050 SFF Success (I3-7100T) using OC 0.8.6 Big Sur

A lower powered version Kaby Lake processor. This machine is so quiet, I can't hear the fan running. The PCIe M.2 SSD works flawlessly at x4. Plenty of performance for a server that stays on all the time. This is a computer that has no comparable Apple product, so no SIMBIOS is a perfect match. Fortunately, WhateverGreen and Lilu handle everything. Strangely, the 'About this Mac' reports a Core i7 processor. Probably something to fix within ACPI, but it's purely cosmetic.

[Success] MacOS Big Sur on Gigabyte GA-Z97-HD3, i7-4790, Radeon RX580, OpenCore 0.6.4

Followed the OpenCore directions exactly. (Actually one mistake because I didn't read the installation directions carefully enough. I corrected on my second try.) I am nowhere near as experienced as many who have done this. It took many hours of reading and research but was worth the effort. This is a clean install on a new SSD because the Catalina installation I had was a mess. (kexts in /library/extensions and in Clover) All kexts are now in my OpenCore efi.

SMBIOS 15,1.

Installation USB not mounting/accesable in clover boot selection

This is not particularly related to Mojave only. I'm having the same problem with Sierra and High Sierra. When I follow the directions to create the install USB (to a T) it takes about 20-25 minutes and then says it was successful. When I reboot into clover the USB drive does not show to be a choice to be selected. I have an existing El Capitan USB installer and it shows up just fine and installs properly on a partition. So, what could I be doing wrong or is this a system definition...

Intel X550 and Big Sur

Hello everyone, please help me start Ethernet Intel X550 in Big Sur operating system.

I have an Asus X99-E-10G WS motherboard that has two 10G ports that run on an Intel X550 controller.
In Catalina, everything worked for me, got it working with kexts:
- FakePCIID.kext
- FakePCIID_Intel_GbX.kext
- SmallTreeIntel8259x.kext
But unfortunately SmallTreeIntel8259x is no longer developed and Catalina is the last operating system...

Mouse and keyboard aren't working during Big Sur installation.

Using OpenCore (0.8.6), keyboard and mouse work in the graphic menu, but when I get to the installation menu, nothing works. I know that Big Sur made some changes talking about USB ports, but what are they and how do I fix them? I tried USB mapping and adding the patch that was on Dortania but it didn't work. I'm...

Help on sleep mode not working on Big Sur or a sudden restart

Hello everyone!
MacOS Catalina was working fine on my laptop but after updating to Big Sur, the sleep mode doesn't work. It never goes to sleep and when i try to put it to sleep mode it suddenly restarts the mac os. Here I have attached the necessary files.
And also why the latest clover does not show the big sur boot volume rather than the preboot volume?
Any help would be so appreciable

Thanks in advance

GA-x99-UD4 + RX5700XT+ Big Sur please help at my wits end...

Hi all,
I have just upgraded the hardware on my old GA-x99-UD4 Core i7 5820k GTX970 that has been running happily for years on clover and High Sierra as my main production machine.
Because of recent changes to the Apps I mainly use in my work, and not being ready to get a completely new machine (economics are not solid) I found a used proc (Core i7 5960x) and GFX card (Radeon rx5700xt) that will allow me to update to at least Big Sur.

Of course as you all know Clover = deprecated and...

Socket 775 Catalina install problem.

I've not done another Hackintosh build for a while since Mojave and I often forget all the procedures.
I've created my Catalina unibeast install stick. It begins the first part of the install OK, then the normal reboot. Got to the continuing install after reboot and after a couple of minutes it crashes to a black screen, reboots and I get a warning the bios has been reset. I have to then go into bios and change back the settings from ide to AHCI.
But then I have to start all over, but can't...

KP - Install 10.5.7 - USB - Z490

I try to install Catalina on my Z490 using MacPro 7,1 using a OpenCore 0.8.5 USB Stick. The USB Stick is 32 GB, I reduced the partition to 20 GB.

The Installer loads, shows the first Apple Logo, Screen turns grey and the again the Apple Logo. After the Apple Logo the screen turns grey again and it shows me an error log file.

I can't get around this error and I don't know what it means at all.

Please see attached config.plist and error message.

Any idea?

Z490 - OpenCore - Install Catalina

I have a running OpenCore 0.8.5 with Ventura on my Z490 Board. I would like to map my USB ports and therefore I would like to install Catalina.

I created a Catalina USB Stick liked described in Dortania, but if I boot with the stick, it doesn't show me the "Install Catalina" option in the boot menu. What is wrong here?

I also tried Unibeast with Clover, there I can see the external Install Catalina, but it get stuck after a couple of seconds if I chose this option. So I really would like...

Internal disks aren't showing up during Big Sur installation (LGA775)

Clover (5130) detects all disks (I dualboot Windows and macOS), but in Disk Utility there's nothing, no disks, no volumes, only installation USB. Did anyone have such problem and how do I fix it? During Catalina installation IOATAFamily.kext solved the issue, but it panics on Big Sur for some reason.

USB-C 5bay ‎IB-3805-C31 Drivecase: only one drive recognised


cause of my old Motherboard i am still on Catalina (latest plus latest security fixes)
i am still quite happy with it, even if it‘s getting old. Updating to Big Sur is no option cause of components which wouldn’t work anymore.

[Guide] Gigabyte Z490 Catalina

Screen Shot 2022-11-01 at 3.04.53 AM.png

I decided to build a Hackintosh to run Catalina as software that I use it is the highest I can go. I do video editing and audio. I wanted a fast computer with lots of RAM and a beast of a video card. I looked long and hard at components and based my decision on Mac compatible. I choose a Gigabyte Z490 Vision D motherboard with a i9-10900, 128GB RAM and a Radeon Vega 64 Frontier Edition 16GB video card.

This combination produce a Mac Pro killer for a whole lot less money...
