    Hello everybody, I've still been in the setup phase of my computer for the longest time, as I haven't found the patience to properly set up the last few steps to get my Hackintosh that last bit complete. I've seen quite a few techniques to properly USB map, and as I want to do thoroughly and...

    Why does a NVRAM Reset wipe GRUB from the boot menu?

    Hello everybody, As some of you might know, I’ve got a triple boot system running with macOS 11.4 and Manjaro Linux 21 running in their own 1TB partitions on my NVMe SSD. Windows is own 500GB SATA SSD, but that’s not relevant here. What I‘m having a hard time solving is the following...

    How to get Optical Audio to work in macOS!

    This might be a pretty banal post, but it might get rid of some confusion for those who are scratching their heads when trying to get sound through their S/PDIF ports.

    Solved The weirdest shit happened to me.

    UPDATE: I tested my iPad now with my computer and yes, Handoff is up and OK. Maybe not as snappy as a real Mac, but it's there. Wow do I feel stupid for thinking that it had something to do with the GPU. Well I guess my doubts about the AirportItlwm kext were higher than my own common sense...

    Any update to the OC Sanity Checker?

    Hello everybody! A few months back I used to go over my EFI and config.plist using the Sanity Checker, which usually got everything right. But when I did my Upgrade to OC 0.6.9 and Big Sur, I was surprised to find that there was no Sanity Checker update since the 0.6.6 release. Does anybody...

    Messed up my triple boot attempt. How to fix that?

    Hey guys, I had a lot of problems a couple of weeks back getting Windows installed via triple boot on my 2TB NVMe SSD. Now that I have only macOS and Linux running on it I dug up a 500GB Samsung 860 EVO SATA SSD and installed Windows on that while having the M.2 SSD uninstalled from my System...

    Hey everybody, I've been running my working 0.5.9 Ryzentosh for a while now and I've been reluctant to upgrade my version. Scouring through the Web I have seen countless apps and tools that people use to update their Clover and OpenCore versions and their kexts and so on... I was wondering...

    PCI section of system report application not showing anything

    Hi everybody, I have the following problem: I've seen many Hackintoshers show off their system and their PCIe peripherals by going into their PCI section of the system report app and showing their e. g. GPU, networking NICs and other. How does one do that? I've never seen anything pop up...

    Afterburner on Ryzen?

    Hey everybody, I was wondering if someone has been able to get Apple’s Afterburner PCIe card working on their Ryzentosh and if it actually works. I know you would only get half the bandwidth on Ryzen as you would be doing the PCIe bifurcation thing (x8/x8) but on Ryzen Threadripper one could...

    Hey everybody, I saw the announcement yesterday that ASUS released a new TB3 AIC which features a very familiar configuration of two mDPs and two TB3 ports, but funnily enough they don't use the normal 5-pin cable to header we usually see on ASRock, Gigabyte and MSI boards. This thing has a...

    Trying out Hackintoshing a Ryzen Laptop

    Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone has successfully tried to install OS X on a Zen+/Zen 2 laptop with a discrete Radeon GPU? Until now there has only been the MSI Alpha model with a 3700H/4800H with the RX 5500M that seemed like the only sensible option, but now Dell is releasing the G5...

    Request for updated GPU buyers guide

    Hi there, I was flying through the Hackintosh GPU buyers guide and the author explicitly mentions some AIBs to avoid such as PowerColor and XFX. What I found confusing was that when naming the models from the respective AIB to avoid they are older Vega or Polaris versions and not Navi...
