Resolving Kext Management Boot Stuck on MSI Z490 with Intel i7-10700k Hackintosh Setup

The message "Forcing CS_RUNTIME for entitlement:" is typically related to issues with kernel extension (kext) management in Hackintosh setups, particularly when using OpenCore as a bootloader.

In the context of your MSI MPG Z490 GAMING EDGE WIFI with an Intel Core i7-10700k, here's a troubleshooting guide:

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Ensure Correct Kext Versions: Verify that all your kexts are up to date and compatible with the version of macOS you are trying to run.

  2. Proper Kext Ordering: In your OpenCore config.plist, ensure that the kexts are loaded in the correct order. For example, Lilu.kext should be loaded before WhateverGreen.kext, and VirtualSMC.kext should be loaded before any other SMC-related kexts.

  3. Verify SIP Settings: Make sure that System Integrity Protection (SIP) settings are correctly configured in your config.plist. Incorrect SIP settings can cause issues with kext loading.

  4. Review Secure Boot Settings: In some cases, adjusting Secure Boot settings in the BIOS and OpenCore can resolve issues with kext loading.

  5. Check for ACPI Errors: Use the EFI and logs to check for any ACPI errors that might prevent the system from booting correctly.

  6. Kext Cache: Sometimes, issues can arise from a corrupted kext cache. You might need to rebuild the kext cache using the terminal commands on the macOS recovery partition or installer.

  7. EFI Configuration: Review your config.plist with an OC Configurator tool or a plist editor to ensure all settings are correct for your hardware.

  8. Hardware Compatibility: Double-check the compatibility of your hardware with macOS, as some components may require specific patches or may not be supported.

  9. BIOS Settings: Ensure that your BIOS settings are correctly configured for Hackintosh. This includes disabling features such as CSM, enabling Above 4G decoding, and other settings recommended for Hackintosh on Z490 motherboards.

  10. Check Other Bootloader Settings: Sometimes, settings within the bootloader itself can cause issues. Ensure that you have followed the OpenCore guide for Coffee Lake systems accurately.

Next Steps:

Once you upload your EFI folder and log, we can look into more specific configurations that might be causing the issue. The log will particularly be useful in pinpointing exactly where the boot process is getting stuck and why. Additionally, the EFI folder will allow us to review your config.plist and the kexts you're using, which can lead to a more precise solution.

Until then, review the general steps above and consider cross-referencing your setup with successful builds using similar hardware. Community forums and guides are invaluable in this regard.
