macOS big sur 11.6.5 to 11.6.6–lost bluetooth

I use a fenvi t919 and macOS Big Sur. Computer specs below and to the left. The bluetooth chipset is still supported. I have noticed many users posting about losing Bluetooth when going from 11.6.5 to 11.6.6.

Initially, an nvram reset fixes the problem and bluetooth is restored. Then, the next cold boot after that Bluetooth is gone again. Attached is the EFI I'm using if anyone has any ideas. I've tried re-mapping the USB ports and also swapped out USBports kext with the old USBinjectall...

Intel Nuc D54250WYK Catalina

Hi Everyone,

I have an old nuc that wasnt being used for anything. I installed High Sierra on it and then direct upgrade to Catalina. When I open up the app store, the machine freezes. It boots quickly has sound and network working (wired, I dont have a wireless card installed yet). I was curious of any thought on why that would happen?

The specs are:

8gb of ram (playing on upgrading to 16)
Intel HD-5000 graphics
Crucial 240gb SSD

rt.gv wake failure after installer reboot

Hi, let's start with the device config:
CPU: i3-4160
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3V plus
No display card.
SSD: Intel 545s 256GB SATA SSD

As I would like to install MacOS Big Sur 11.7.4 in the PC, I prepared the Opencore EFI (using 0.9.0 release) based on Dortania Guide for Haswell Desktop. It went smooth during the first few minutes of the installation.

When the countdown shows "12 minutes remaining", the computer rebooted itself and entered the MacOS installer in the SSD. The...

Clover bootloader stuck at logo with Catalina

Hello Folks,

I searched several Threads through google and found probably the same issue at other users, but none of their solutions were satisifying.

My Clover installtion is stuck at the boot logo with the error shown in the file. Does anybody recall a solution for this kernel related issue. I remember, that when I installed Catalina on VMWare I had to add the following parameter to the vmx file:

cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101"

Do I have to add the same value...

Not creating bootable USB


I'm trying to get my hackOSX going again after I broke it a few years back... been lasy and running on windows as well as a straight MBP.

I'm thinking to put it on Catalina as that's what I'm currenty on on my MBP.. separate question - should I just skip Catalina and go straight to Big Sur, Monteray or Ventura? I'm on a (pretty old now) Haswell set up with a 4770k processor.

I have "csrutil" disable and checked the status to confirm that.
I've run Unibeast several times now using...

Strange display issue

Hi everyone.

I have a working dual-monitor setup with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760.
Until short my monitors consisted of 1) some AOC 21,5" (1920x1080) monitor and 2) an quite old Acer 22" (1680x1050).
"Until short" means, the second monitor (the Acer) died a couple of days ago and I replaced it with an PB Viseo243D (still had this somewhere in storage).

Now, my issue is: MacOS does not seem to recognize the new monitor but thinks that the Acer is still connected and thus I cannot change the...

Big Sur 11.7.4 Permissions denied

I've loaded 11.7.4 onto my imac 14,4 gen 4 gigabyte z97. Installed on a WD black 850 2 tb nvme on a pci card. Everything went fine except I cannot change read & write permissions for the drive and therefore cannot even copy a tiny file onto the drive. get info shows - system, wheel, everyone and only system can read & write? I didn't have this problem running 11.6.5 on a regular ssd.
Anybody know how to fix this so I can use the remaining 1.75 tb on this drive?
Thanks, Al

The rest of machine is intel 9900K on Gigabyte z390 aorus pro, Samung Evo 970 ssd.

It now boots with clover 5119 but the monitors do not work...
