The Polls have spoken and SMBIOS MacPro7,1 won by a landslide so from OpenCore 0.7.0 onwards MacPro7,1 will be used going forward.
I will make the Files needed available to convert the EFI to iMacPro1,1 and put up instructions on how to convert it. 👍

I currently have AMD R9 5900X with Aorus X570 Xtreme almost all working except the following:
-Bluetooth (my previous build based on dorthania had bluetooth working. Tried merging kexts without too much garbage didn't work)
-Onboard Audio (I'm guessing ALC1220-VB just doesn't work at all?)
-Picker does not have reset NVRAM option (For some reason every time I try to make changes to config.plist, it requires NVRAM to reset. Your EFI doesn't seem to show this option in OC for some reason)

Thank you so much for your help!



Update 1 - Picker does have NVRAM option by pressing Ctrl + Space. Learning as I go.

What’s with all the extra kexts you have going on in the kext folder?
i see 4 that are not needed and 2 of them 4 that have nothing to do with your setup.
AppleMCEReporterDisabler (not needed)
intelMausi and IntelSnowMausi (both useless with your setup)
CtlnaAHCIPort (why?)

To get your Bluetooth going try fully shutting down the system and then unplug it from the mains and wait a few minutes, plug it back in and boot back up and this should kick your Bluetooth into life.

None of the alcid is working... I'm afraid something else is up. Putting more screenshots as below.

About that Creative Labs stuff.. That's my Sound Blaster AE-5 that I was using for Windows. You can ignore that if that's impossible to be used in hackintosh. Am I supposed to use "Starship/Matisse HD Audio Controller"? I don't see any Realtek entries here for some reason...

@DarkSilentSC Are you selecting the internal speakers in the sound properties?

We don't want to populate the PCI Tab (its cosmetic only when you do)

Cleaned up the drivers, but that didn't make any difference... ooof

Thanks so so much for your help thus far!

Update - Hackintool list literally shows no Realtek devices at all... Shouldn't that appear regardless of alcid number placed in boot args?

Okay! I got the ALC1220VB audio devices listing in Sound menu with volume control.

AudioGod - YOU ARE A GOD - THANK YOU SIR.

I'm posting up at success stories now.

@AudioGod ... I have a question for the expert.

To get my BlackMagic HDMI Capture card to play nicely on my 3900x/5700xt/Gigabyte hackintosh....

On powerup -
With OpenCanopy.. I have to boot into Windows through OpenCore, where windows thinks I'm booting from an iMac Pro.
  • When Windows opens, I open a video capture app to initialize the PCIe capture card.
  • I then reboot windows into MacOS selecting the separate drive in Open Canopy -
  • With MacOS running, I can then access the video card that was properly initialized in Windows.

In your OpenCore Configuration, you call out that windows is booted without using the OpenCore / iMac Profile.

Where/how did you change this? I need to get openCore to maintain the hardware / acpi through restarting.

Many thanks for all your efforts.
Thomas

Go into your config plist and change the following,

Kernel -> Quirks -> CustomSMBIOSGuid -> Yes
PlatformInfo -> UpdateSMBIOSMode -> Custom

This will inject your smbios details to macOS only.
Also make sure your SSDTs are setup to bypass other OS and your good.

Thanks for the heads up. The settings you provided are for having OpenCore enabled for MacOS and Disabled for other operating systems. I need to have OpenCore enabled for MacOS and all other Operating systems, where MacOS and Windows sees my hardware as a mac. With that said I changed the settings to:

Kernel -> Quirks -> CustomSMBIOSGuid -> No
PlatformInfo -> UpdateSMBIOSMode -> ""

Changing the Config.efi you prepared to this setting, I can only get the hardware to fully initialize in 1 out of 5 attempts. In 4 cases, I get one still image. So something is still getting in the way. While it's an improvement than getting a black screen every time, something is still off... Perhaps it's something with the ACPI or PCIe settings? I'm wondering if trying your MacPro config would change anything?

In that case you should have it set as
PlatformInfo -> UpdateSMBIOSMode -> Create

As for your ACPI, I couldn’t tell you as I don’t know what SSDTs and SMBIOS you are using and nor do I know what your Gigabyte motherboard model is and I don’t have my Crystal ball with me today unfortunately so without more information I really don’t know my friend. 😉

@ufotom If you are using SMBIOS MacPro7,1 then try this EFI (Just add your details to the Config.lPlist) and if you’re not using a X570 Pro or Ultra then disable the USBMap.kext

If you’re using SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 then use the one on page one of this thread

also change
Kernel -> Quirks -> CustomSMBIOSGuid -> No
PlatformInfo -> UpdateSMBIOSMode -> Create
So you get SMBIOS injection across all other OS 👍
