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...

Hackintosh doesn't boot

I set up a MacOS Big Sur pendrive following the instructions, i can boot into the OpenCore, but when i select the "external, dmg" option, it starts but never finishes... It gives me the following error:
I tried searching it up but i didn't get any useful info. I'm new here. Can you tell me why its not working? Thanks!

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...

Not enough disk space to install - how to Remove extra volume?

My install routine say “not enough disk space to install”
I’ve discovered that there is an extra volume on the boot drive that almost fills the drive.
Two volumes display in Disk Utility (but other utilities show 5 volumes)
One is current install - Catalina
One volume is my old Mojave install. 95GB

Is there a way to remove the old volume without reformatting the entire disk?
I don’t want to loose all my installed applications.

Update to Mojave but lost NIC

I just upgraded my version to Mojave 10.14.6 directly from High Sierra. My internet was working fine before the upgrade. When I got it up and running in Mojave, no internet.

System report no longer lists an Ethernet card.

My system:
Gigabyte Z77X-UP4TH
Trendnet TEG-ECTX

I think I need to install drivers(?)

I tried to install drivers using multibeast 11.3.0 but I get an error when I go to the build screen and press install - “The installation failed…check the Multibeast.log…”

Haswell GA-Z97MX-Gaming-5 Shutdown & Sleep Issues

I have installed Big Sur 11.2.3 on a i7-4790K in a GA-Z97MX-Gaming-5 with a Fenvi-T919 (connected to an internal USB header to enable bluetooth) using OpenCore 0.7.9.

All works as it should, however I am getting sleep (instant wake from sleep) and shutdown (automatic restart after shutdown) issues.

As I am still running 11.2.3, I have built a custom USB KeyMap GA-Z97MX-Gaming-5-USB.kext with the internal USB header set as type 255, however sleep and shutdown still doesn't work...

upgrading from high sierra to big sur, have to change system ID?

Hi, I have a build from 2013 that I want to update to Big Sur. There's a couple complications and I'm trying to make sure I get the steps right before I jump into this.. advice appreciated!

When I made it, I assigned it a iMac (27-inch, late 2013) which now won't install big sur. Also, I can't remember when I installed clover or what version that is. I do have clover configurator but I'm not sure if I'm using it right or if I'm using the wrong application or something.

I think I need to...

OpenCore Guide - USB creation-gather files-kexts-USB - USBMap Guide - says “Restart” - Restart What?

The OpenCore Install Guide, under USB Creation suggests USBToolBox - BUT then the toolbox info says when working from MacOS to use USBMap instead. (USBToolBox is for use on Windows)
USBMap has a nice Quick STart guide along with the download.
After running step 1. Discover Ports and 2. Create dummy USBMap.kext, it says to add the USBMap.kext dummy injector to your Kexts folder and Config.plist.
I added it to the Kexts folder, but...
My (mounted) EFI for the Install USB I’m creating has no...
