Graphics Acceleration Using NootedRed

Graphics Acceleration Using NootedRed

I managed to get Big Sur running on my Ryzen PC with following specs -

  • CPU - Ryzen 7 5700G (Cezzane)
  • iGPU - Radeon Vega 8
  • dGPU - RTX 3070 Ti
  • Motherboard - Asus Tuf Gaming B550 Wifi Plus
  • RAM - 16x2 GB DDR4 3600MHz memory (dual channel)

I followed the Dortania guide to create the USB installer and included all AMD patches as suggested. I also included NootedRed kext to enable my 5700G's iGPU. I also made the following changes in my BIOS -

What’s working -

  1. Ethernet (RealTek Semiconductor RTL8125 Gaming 2.5GbE)

  2. Audio out (ALC1200 codec)

  3. USB (v3.1)

What’s NOT working -

  1. Wifi/Bluetooth (MediaTek MT7921 Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Network Adapter)

  2. Graphics Acceleration - I ran VDADecoderChecker in terminal and got below error

  1. Multiple displays - I am only getting output on 1 DisplayPort connected to my WQHD monitor

Other Issues found so far -

  1. For some reason about my mac is showing CPU as 8-Core Intel Xeon W

  1. Graphics/Displays is showing my Nvidia as primary GPU.

  1. I am getting a warning about my memory configuration as below

  1. Web browsing (specially videos) is painfully slow and graphics in some apps break a lot

I am yet to try out other aspects/functionalities of MacOS as I want to fix the GPU issue before that.

Here is my config.plist file.

Any leads/help on these issues would be great! Thanks!

slow boot

Since upgrading to Monterey I've been experiencing painfully slow boots on my Hackintosh. I consider myself to be a novice when it comes to debugging issues like that.

I Would love it if some of you would be willing to take a peek at my boot log in hopes that it points me in the direction of what possibly could be causing the issue. Any feedback would be appreciated.

For context, here are my HW specs.

Model: Dell XPS 8930CPU: i7 8700 Coffee LakeChipset: z370Graphics: Sapphire Nitro+ RX580 / Intel UHD Graphics 630Ram: 32GBAudio: ALC3861Ethernet: Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet ControllerWifi: BCM943602CS PCI-e card (non-OEM)

Seeking Guidance: Installing Hackintosh on AMD Ryzen 5 5500U

Seeking Guidance: Installing Hackintosh on AMD Ryzen 5 5500U

Hello Reddit community,

I am currently seeking guidance regarding the feasibility of installing Hackintosh on an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU, specifically within an Honor laptop . I understand that installing Hackintosh on AMD APUs can be challenging, and I would greatly appreciate any assistance or insights from those who have successfully accomplished this task. It is worth mentioning that I am using an Honor laptop, which comes with an Honor BIOS. I understand that BIOS compatibility is crucial for a successful Hackintosh installation

Thank you in advance for your support and contributions. I look forward to hearing from the community and benefiting from your expertise.

My 2015 laptop to convert into macos

Hey, so I have a HP ProBook 430 G3

i5-6200u 2.3GHz 16GB Dual Channel 798MHz Intel HD 520 With 8GB shared video memory And of course right now windows 10. So my question is can I install macOS? If yes than whats the best one for me? And will I be able to game on it? And will my performance drop hard or it will stay the same? I really love MacOS design and I really want to install it if possible. Thanks for all the help!

Upcycled my older gaming rig to a Big Sur iMac19,1

  • i7-8600K / Coffeelake
  • Asus Strix Z370-E
  • 32GB DDR4 G-Skill 2133 MHz
  • Radeon RX 6600
  • Intel Ethernet
  • Realtek Wifi (not configed)
  • NVME M2 Samsung EVO 970 pro

Kexts: NVMeFix.kext IntelMausi.kext AppleALC.kext WhateverGreen.kext SMCSuperIO.kext SMCProcessor.kext VirtualSMC.kext Lilu.kext

I am using debug mode and prebuilds just to get proof of concept, going to reconfigure and make custom files next. I need to tweak usb settings, dial in gpu, and upgrade to newer os.

everything is pretty much working out of the box. i haven't tested bluetooth, but headphones audio, screen display, and usb is working.

This is a really fun build process, great community, and just enough hacking pain and puzzles to make for an awesome project!

Took about 3 days of tinkering.

Good luck out there!

Ran into issues with- - usb stick not being in usb2.x port - slowly but surely collected feedback with log files and found direct documentation OC fixes for common problems, or no problems finding in the community. (Look for the Err at the end of the log and then google it with your motherboard) - I was lucky enough to have a decent architecture for this build (Z370), I have been wanting to do this project and took advantage of cheap Radeon card prices. - When I do a rebuild i will document all the quirks i had, but almost every issue was either bios, or a config.plist edit. - Make sure you update your BIOS on mobo, and use a usb stick to download the newest (v. 3005 on may 25 2023). Do not trust the built in bios updater, mine told me i was up to date with an old bios, and i lost a day of troubleshooting thinking i have the newest version.

Truly pumped about this, thanks again yall

Almost perfect install on HP Probook 640 G1

Everything that was needed to boot works and overall runs wonderfully, the only thing that i can't figure out how to get working is the audio for the system. I've tried all the layout ids with applealc that i believe my laptop has. Could someone possibly help me out with this?

opencore error...

I select the recovery dmg and It is going to the screen does this indicate that I have missed a bios setting? I am trying to boot into ventura on an i7-4770 with hd 4600 graphics. or Do I need an amd gpu?

Lenovo D20- Dual Xeon 5650, 96 GB RAM

Seen some post regarding the Lenovo D20 and previous MacOS's. Figured I make an up to date one on Big Sur.

Started with Sierra - Catalina using SMBIOS (iMac14,2), Clover 5146 w/ Nvidia Quadro K420 1GB

BCM5722D.kext (Ethernet)

Now in order for me to update to Big Sur from Catalina I had to change my SMBIOS to any SMBIOS above iMac 19,1

Author: kay2wild

Ventura 13.4 on xiaomi notebook Pro.

I had to create Catalina bootable drive and then upgrade from Catalina to Ventura with updating kexts in efi.

i tried to create bootable drive with Ventura but for some reason it did not see by my laptop.

Would 128gb be enough for Hackintosh.

Hey, I want to install macOS on my pc on a 128gb ssd that I don't have a use for. I have a 500gb nvme that I was planning on using for shared space between macOS and Windows. Is 128gb enough to just get the base system installed?

macOS Monterey on good old ThinkPad X230

OpenCore Picker (default/builtin) doesn't display at all when booting - Acer Extensa 2540

So I've been trying to reinstall MacOs Big Sur into an Acer Extensa 2540 and when getting to the picker, it does not display anything at all. The inputs seem to be working but the display is completely dark. I've tried to unplug and replug the hdmi, and turning the display on and off, but the screen just stays black

The system specs are:

Intel i3-6006U @ 2.00GHz

12 GBs of SODIMM Ram

I don't know the motherboard model due to it being a laptop, unfortunately.

And in any case, it worked before a few OpenCore versions ago, around 0.7.8 if I recall correctly but currently doesn't work at all.

And important note: I am not using the integrated display. I removed it long ago so I use an external HDMI display instead.

The log file is here in case it's needed (latest boot)

here's the plist as well
