Hi guys, I accidentally replaced an old config.plist with my current one (I forgot to make a copy, how stupido I can be) and now Monterey won't boot. Any thoughts/help?
Hardware: Mobo Asus Prime X470 Pro, GPU AMD R9 390, CPU Ryzen 5 3600 6-core.
Greetings from the NL

-no_compat_check isn't needed if you've got the correct SMBios.
slide=201 Doubtful you need this.

Apart from that, looks good.

Thanks Shaneee! Everything works, even Metal. Final question: Is it possible to get my dvd-drive working in Bug Sur?

I'm assuming it works in Windows? My thought was it was using a SATA port that's disabled because of a M.2 drive. If that's not the case then AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext may be of some help.

@Edwin if the DVD player was active in macOS it would appear as shown in the following screenshots:

Which SATA port do you have the DVD connected to in your system?

The DVD device will be working at 1.5GB not the full 6GB that a SATA port can provide, this is normal. The drive should work with any functioning SATA, SATA2 or SATA3 cable, because of the native speed of the drive.

There are 6 x SATA3 connections on your motherboard, as shown in the screenshot from your motherboard's user manual:

As far as I can tell these ports do not share PCIe lanes with the 2 x M.2 connectors. So they should all be available even when the 2 x M.2 connectors are populated.

This is what the Manual says about the M.2 connectors:

You need to check that the DVD device is active and enabled in your Bios.
You need to check that the SATA and SATA Power connectors are fully seated in the motherboard/PSU and in the back of the DVD device.
You may need to try swapping SATA cables to see if the one you are currently using is defective.

Poop! I checked everything, tried all sata ports but no dvd device is shown in Big Sur. In Windows the dvd drive is visible. Is the kext ok, I wonder?
