Can't get installer to boot - BIOS freezes after selecting my USB drive

I've followed the OpenCore guide for everything until this point, where you actually begin installation on the target machine. At first, I had CSM enabled in BIOS (all the guide said was "macOS optimized BIOS settings" which wasn't particularly helpful...), which returned "Reboot or Select Proper Boot Device". Decided to disable CSM to see if that would help, and I think it got me further but not meaningfully.

Basically, the screen flashes for a second and my mouse cursor stops working but my keyboard still works, so I can navigate in BIOS. The graphics are a little glitchy; the whole BIOS menu only takes up about 2/3 the screen and there's a bunch of glitching around the border. All options disappear from the boot menu when it's in this state and the only way to get it back to normal again is to shut it off and turn it back on again.

Here is what the path looks like on my USB drive.

I am attempting to install macOS Monterey. Some info about the system I am looking to install on:

CPU: Core i7-4790

RAM: 2x8GB DDR3-1600

GPU: Intel HD 4600

Storage: 256GB SATA SSD

Looking for a good laptop to hackintosh

I have owned a Macbook Air since early-mid 2018, and I am looking to upgrade. However, I am considering stepping away from Apple hardware, yet keep using their software because I own an iPhone too.

I am looking for a 2-in-1 convertible that has pen support (doesn't have to be in macOS too, but it would be nice). I don't have a need for anything beyond integrated graphics, but I do need atleast a Core i5 and 8 GB RAM. For storage, either 1 TB would be nice but 500 GB is fine too.

I am aware that being exact with the specs might not be possible, so I am willing to hear any options that don't completely fit into my requirements.

Thank you for your help!

Hi! I am stuck this error while upgrading my ‘15 MB-A to Monterey when my screen when blank on restart and I somehow managed to turn it on by watching a tutorial on YouTube. Now I’m left with this error. What do I do now?

6950XT Compatibility

Hello All,

I inherited a new RX 6950XT and want to build a Hackintosh. From what I can tell from my initial googling macOS doesn't have official support for the 6950XT but it does support the 6900XT. Will macOS just treat the card as a 6900XT or am I out of luck?

Triple boot when the first two systems are already installed?

So my Latitude 7410 already has Windows and Linux installed. I have successfully prepared my USB with Monterey and it boots from it perfectly. How do I install it alongside Windows 10 and Debian? Will that cause any issues?

macOS installer immediately exits

So I've been trying to hackintosh this intel NUC. I've done it before on this PC with Ventura even. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. All of my bios settings are to Opencore spec. It just wont even load the bootloader. I've been stuck on this for a few days.

If anyone knows what this is that'd be awesome. Thanks

Mojave to Big Sur issues


Had a coffee lake mojave build running great for the past few years.H370-HD3, i5-8400, Vega 56 GPU.

Trying to migrate it to Mac OS 11 and have hit a brick wall. End user tried updating from Mojave to Big Sur and has caused some issues.

Clover 5122 is bootlooping and will not boot to USB. I have done the installer, followed open core tutorial and I am stuck. USB installer will not appear in clover.

To remedy it, I have put another 1TB NVME ssd in the computer and I'm going to...

Having trouble getting to Monterey installer from OC USB boot

Having trouble getting to installer with OC. It validated with ocvalidate with no errors, but I can only get so far in the OC boot before it hangs. FYI - I don't need the USB port limit as my MB actually has 2 separate controllers with each controller under the 15 limit anyway.

My CPU is Ryzen 7 5700g, B550 Asrock MB, AMD 6600XT GPU

I've followed the Dortania guide meticulously (this is my 4th hackintosh with OC), but first time with an AMD CPU. Changed settings in my BIOS as per guide (enable 4G, disabled others etc). I'm thinking this is because WhateverGreen has picked up my iGPU? Has anyone else had success with 5000 series Ryzen with iGPU?

This is where the system freezes.(Sorry - Google did OCR on my screen shot and most of the '8's are actually zeros)

How to install catalina on old system legacy

Its an Asus UL30A with penryn chip, 4gb ram. i have the image or dmg, i need efi

Author: dotruongson

What is the easiest upgrade path from High Sierra to Ventura? Clover vs Opencore? Nvidia to Radeon plus ram upgrade.

With my machine being on High Sierra the last time I installed MacOS was about 5 years ago, so I am looking for advice about which path to follow to upgrade to Ventura.

I never upgraded from HS as I had a Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card and the machine was working just as a raid and plex server. I now have a better use for the machine, so i am in the process of an upgrade.

I have just bought some new ram and graphics card for it and now wish to update the OS and was wondering which method would be easiest for me. I am guessing that would be fresh install, but not sure which method would be easiest. I did use Clover in the past but has been so long now it doesnt matter.

Specs are as follows.
Asus ROG STRIX Z370-G motherboard
Intel Core i7-8700K Processor (Coffee Lake)
Patriot Viper 4 Blackout Series DDR4 64GB (2 x 32GB) 3600MHz
Sapphire Radeon RX 6600 8GB PULSE Graphics Card

Components being replaced are HyperX Predator 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz RAM Kit (2x 8GB) and ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

Also any advice on kext set up will also be appreciated.

My Hackintosh had a kernel panic while I was using it now on every boot I get this error message (I’m running an i7-3540M on Monterey)

GPU recommendations.

Use my machine mainly for music production, but also game on it. I think my GPU is dying, started flickering a few months ago, now all games crash. It’s a Vega frontier edition. I’m thinking 6800, or 6600. Considered a 5700XT to avoid having to update OS, but they’re about the same price as a 6600. On Catalina now, any suggestions for a budget friendly card are welcomed.

Error after OCLP patch

I'm trying to install OC on my desktop with an intel i5-8400. Everything was working fine until i did the OCLP to make nvidia web drivers work so that i could use my second screen and to remove the lag that i had when i was using graphics (for example when i watched yt vids the video would get rippy and my system extremly laggy). After doing the path by disabling SIP and tweaking my config.plist so that it matched the requirements i get two errors. One seems to be conncted to AppleALC and the other one i don't know even where to start. The GPU i have is a 1050ti so it should be compatible. Both of the errors apper after the oc boot menu appears and i select the drive i want to boot from.

Today I no longer have a mac computer but I’ve purchased a Catalina usb disk from Amazon.

Thanks for any and all assistance!

[SUCCESS] Clover to OpenCore 0.9.1 in Mojave 10.14.6 - GB Z390 Aorus Pro (Bios v12) - i9900k- iGPU Intel UHD 630

Hi guys,
I'm a hackintosh user but completely clueless about any building and programming topics, I have an old machine assembled by a friend and would still like to be able to use it as it works.
The need is to upgrade work programmes (Photoshop, Premiere) which do not run with the current operating system.

Clover Update now non bootable

I needed to reboot and forgot I had updated clover. Now I just get stuck at the clover boot screen. Any selection to boot from any drive just sits there and does nothing.
Did I just brick the machine? I had made a CCC of my OS drive shortly before starting to do the steps to upgrade, but the machine...

Upgrading from HighSierra to Catalina, no disk to install

After booting with USB, I got to the recovery console, and from there, I selected to upgrade MacOS to Catalina. Unfortunately, only the external USB was available (locked) and not my High Sierra SSD. My SSD has the HFS file system and I read that Catalina needs the APFS file system.

So, the question is, if the file system prevents me to...
