OpenCore Catalina boot panic

Bought the hardware for a Catalina build almost 2 years ago and never got around to doing it. My current machine is still running El Capitan so it's definitely time for the upgrade. Needless to say, it's been a while since I have played around with installs.

Big thanks to nottooshabby, flavioalves, nathanh0, and G5Heaven for their posts on Gigabyte Z390 builds. Have gone through the whole Dortania guide and played around with various entries but can't seem to get things to the install...

I225-V Big Sur Recovery Ethernet

Hello! recently i was trying to install Big Sur on my PC (7 5700X, Strix B550-F Gaming, 1060 6GB - I dont need metal ill use OCLP)

I was trying pretty much everything that I could find on the web, but nothing helped. When I use dk.e1000=0 the error about no internet connection disappears, but when I try to click Install, it just keeps loading forever in the main menu of recovery, and in Safari, websites just load forever. Pinging Google or any other site in the terminal gives a ping: cannot...

Apologies if this subject has already been addressed. My Goolge-fu has not been able to turn up any substantial results. I recently built a new machine that wasn't initially intended as a Hackintosh (specs below). It was an upgrade to a OBS capture PC running Windows (which works fine naturally). When I realized how much extra "oomph" I could potentially get out of this machine as compare to my Late 2014 Mac Mini (I5-4278U 8GB RAM, with hack to run eGPU on Thunderbolt 2), I though well...

Boot Loop in Mojave

I just upgraded to Mojave from High Sierra. I had to weed out some old kexts to get sound to work. The system worked fine for a week until today. Now when I start the boot of OSX from Clover, the Apple progress bar proceeds half way across and the system re-boots. The only thing I did differently today was I left a USB drive inserted in one of the reports when I was booting the system. I don't think that should have changed any thing.

I can work around the boot problem by using the -x...

Can't boot into installer with OC configuration that used to work

So I have this ThinkCentre M93p Tiny that I did successfully install Big Sur on like 2 years ago. I then installed another OS on this machine and saved the OC folder with the working configuration just in case. I am now trying to install it again. First I tried Monterey and changed the Type to iMac16,2. Since it did not show me a black screen after the verbose output, I thought trying the old Big Sur configuration that used to work and I got the same problem. Since I upgraded the CPU from an...

Dual-boot or Parallels?

Hi all: I'm planning to build a machine that will be running 10.13 High Sierra. I do use a couple WinDOS programs, but not very often. So I ask: should I make my machine a dual-boot with two drives (one macOS and one WinDOS 7), or just one drive with macOS and use Parallels to run the stuff that I sometimes need?

I do have a couple of concerns: I've seen that Dell machines all have a blue SATA port ("SATA 0" on each and every one) and that's always where the boot drive gets plugged in...

Big Sur on Z170X mobo with OpenCore : failure

Hi all
My Sierra install had been running flawlessly since 2017 (Gigabyte Z170X G1 Ultra Gaming, i7 6700K) but in late june, the graphic layer conked up and all I was left with was an OS with no hardware acceleration. Chrome with bands across the pages when loading, Davinci Resolve unable to even launch because no GPU found...
So I decide to upgrade but my trusty GTX1060 isn't supported anymore so I get myself a 5700XT.
I opt for OpenCore as everyone seems to say it's the better option. I...
