Should be working bud, it’s mapped right that’s for sure or it wouldn’t be listed. The bcm93640CD might very well need BrcmPatchRAM and or AirportBrcmFixup to make it work correctly with Big Sur.
Hi , i've fixed it out, removed the intel wifi module, it conflicts with bcm94360

Hey! I‘ve just recently made my first Hackintosh installation ever all by myself using Dortania’s guide, and everything went smooth (for the most part :p). But I did it with MacOS Catalina! And I really want to have 11.5 Big Sur.

My system:
MOBO: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
GPU: RX 5700
RAM: 32GB

Do you think I can use your EFI files to set myself up?

I don’t care about Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and the benefits that comes with them at all for now. I use internet via ethernet and I don’t have any plans to buy a Wi-Fi card at the moment. Just telling you in case that matters. Using SmallTreeIntel82576.kext the internet is working fine right now on Catalina.

Also, do I need to create a new USB with Big Sur (and your EFI) on it and delete everything (fully reinstall OS) to upgrade to Big Sur? Or is there a way for me to upgrade from Catalina without problems? (I have the notification from App Store telling me that Big Sur 11.5 is available).

Thank you so much for your help :)

This is my first fully functional Ryzen Hackintosh after many many years of intel builds and when I say fully functional I mean just that.
Everything is working bar SideCar of course as there's no IGPU and I'm using SMBios iMacPro1,1 but as for everything else goes like proper sleep, Wake, All iCloud functions, Handoff, AppleWatch Unlock etc etc all works beautifully.
I have fully mapped out USB manually on all ports and there's no micro stutters or freezes or anything else strange that you can think of.


Build Spec
  • CPU: Ryzen 9 5900X

EFI Install Notes
Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following



Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=ignore from the boot arguments.
X570 Master users need to add the LucyRTL8125Ethernet.kext to the kext folder and config.plist to enable the 2.5gb Ethernet port that can be downloaded from here.

If you need help then feel free to get in touch and do let me know how my EFI works for you.

The EFI has now been updated to the my latest version.
Changes made include,
  • SMBIOS Changed to MacPro 7,1
  • Lilu 1.5.4,
  • AppleALC 1.6.2,
  • WhateverGreen 1.5.1,
  • VirtualSMC 1.2.5,
  • RestrictEvents 1.0.3,
  • OpenCore Updated to Revision 0.7.1 (Big Sur 11.5 Ready),
  • AMD Patches Monterey 12.0 Beta1 Compatible,
  • SIP Can now be toggled within OpenCanopy,
  • OpenCanopy Icons Updated,
  • Plus other minor tweaks and changes to the config.

IMPORTANT SMBIOS CHANGE - As requested by many the SMBIOS has now been switched over to MacPro7,1 if you want to continue using iMacPro1,1 then all you need todo is replace the USBMap.kext with the 1,1 version and add SSDT-XHC to your ACPI and your Config.plist, Change agdpmod=ignore into agdpmod=pikera and add your 1,1 details. I will add a 1,1 conversion kit to download incase you need it.

Make sure you sign out of all icloud services before swapping over to the 7,1 EFI and Do not try and carry across your old 1,1 details to SMBIOS 7,1. You will need to create new Personal SMBIOS Details for MacPro7,1.
If you are using your real UUID and MAC address from your motherboard then these can carry over but not the Serial Number and MLB, These will need to be regenerated.

Note - If you are using a 6 or Less Core Ryzen then go into the Config,plist and under PlatformInfo->Generic Change the ProcessorType from 0 to 1537, This will list your CPU info correctly inside About This Mac.

Note 2 - The SmallTreeIntel82576.kext is not working under Monterey 12.0 so if you plan on playing around with the new OS for now make sure you use the 2.5GHz ethernet port or WiFi instead.


Current EFI - OpenCore 0.7.1 (05/07/2021) SMBIOS MacPro7,1
Hi AudioGod,

I put this EFI into my existing one and worked like a charm. Thank you so much.
A couple of things, the resolution is fine when it boots and the apple logo shows but the login screen is gigantic. But once logged in the resolution is fine. Then, sometimes after log in there is a blank black screen for a few seconds and then the apps start showing up. The other thing is I lost audio. Also, now OC 0.7.1 does not recognise my Windows drive (I made the necessary changes to the BIOS like disabling Secure Boot etc).

Could you give me some hints as to where I could go looking to fix these? What could be the things I would look like, kexts ? something else?

My machine is

ASUS Pro WS X570-ACE
Ryzen 9 3900X
32GSs RAM
2 500 GB SSDs

Did you do a legacy install of windows as it should show instantly if it was a UEFI Install?

Well, I yolo'd the update from Catalina to Big Sur through the App Store and everything is working lol, so I guess I'm good for now :p

Sorry buddy I missed your post from earlier.
Only thing you need to change in my EFI is the USBMap.kext and probably the alcid= Boot argument to suit your intergrated audio but everything else is perfect for your board.
Glad you got going anyway. :)

I am actually not sure. I just used the Windows installer. It was showing when I was on OC 0.7.0 but not after upgrade to 0.7.1. The windows installer USB shows up. I shall check again, thanks for the hint. Oh and I figured out the audio, if I make it alcid=1 , seems works for my motherboard. I compare carefully with the older config.plist. My resolution issues are not 100% fixed but better. I removed adgpmod=ignore but I am not sure I should do that.

And I dabbled with Monterey which I downloaded by signing up for the beta program. That gest stuck at the apple logo, I left it overnight and there was no movement.

AudioGod: Thank you so much for posting this and helping out the community members. My research has found some people having issues with hardwired ethernet drop outs and of course software issues (ie. Adobe and Zoom). Have you experienced any of these issues with this build?

Monterey Beta1 is the only version that will work with the current patches inside my 0.7.1 EFI. The new patches are not ready yet but if you want to get the latest beta working then follow Professor Shaneee’s steps on how to get it going. :)

No issues with any hardware including Ethernet and WLAN, Everything is rock solid.
As for Adobe stuff there are fixes available for various Adobe Apps most of which you can find solutions for on here.

I can’t comment about Zoom but generally as there’s no real support for AMD CPUs on MacOS so you will find not everything will work app wise. I should stress though that the list of borked apps is not large at all And there are fixes for most of them but not all.

If anybody wants to try the latest version of Monterey Developer Beta3 or Public Beta2 then you can find instructions on how to modify the patches to work from here.


If you have questions on how to do it then ask on the linked thread but theres no real support for the latest patches ATM and I totally advise against installing Monterey as your daily driver. It’s not ready for that yet so use a spare Drive to test it with.
