Hi All :cool:

For a while, I had a Hackintosh/Clover with an ASUS motherboard. But now I switched to AMD and would like to make a Ryzentosh with OC. I have tried several different EFI folders, but the setup always crashes, or the setup will not even run.

Maybe someone has an EFI folder for my computer hardware that is worth a try? :)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor
MBO: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE
GPU: MSI AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
RAM: G.Skill 4x 8GB 2133MHz
SSD: Force MP600 (to install Mac OS) (PCI Express 4.0 x4)
SSD: Force MP600 (for data) (PCI Express 4.0 x4)
SSD: Samsung SSD 860 QVO 1TB (Windows)

My build is almost exactly the same and it worked fine for me following the official guide.
Just take your time to prepare everything correctly. What I first missed was to 100% set the BIOS / UEFI settings to the correct values.
So double check those.

Hey

I have the Same Motherboard and processor as like you..but with rx5700xt..
I would like to know how long the Motherboard will take to boot...I am stuck at #Log : Exitbd:Start..I would like to get the EFI Folder structure for your Hack.

If you Had encountered any similar error...Give me a tip to solve it.

Thanks..

Boot time is rather slow for such capable hardware to be honest (using WD Black SN750 1TB). But since POST is already taking ages and I only boot once a day it does not matter much to me.
After POST it maybe takes 10 seconds until the login screen is displayed.

If you want to copy other peoples work, try it with this one - same config basically. https://amd-osx.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=9805&

Thanks for your response

I am struggling with this error for days...I also do not know the SSDTs necessary for the build. I will use the link as reference...

Thanks a lot for your help...

I have the same issue again...Does the Bios Version and MacOS Version Matter?

Which macOS version do you try to install on this?
Catalina 10.15.6 should work fine.
Make sure that you have the latest OpenCore binaries as well as latests version of each kext that you need.
If you use the preconfigured folder those could be outdated.

Edit:
Can you post your config.plist (minus serial number and such) - maybe we can find some issue there.

hello Mate

I am trying to Make my OpenCore 0.6 to work ..
I have added the lastest kexts from the github Repos also I have added the latest kernel patches but I have Trouble in with the SSDTs. I do not know how to make my SSDTs but there are pre-Build ones from the dortaina guide. As you said in the earlier post I tried my best on Following the dortaina guide .. but no luck...I need you help for making my own OC EFI.I would like to learn more. I ll share the EFI Structure and the Config file with you. Help me find my mistakes. I also used the opencore sanity test and every thing comes green.

Thanks a lot for helping me.

Try to use this section for "Booter" (from my config.plist) - this is where I see a lot of differences compared to my config.
I think the issue you see is from the SetupVirtualMap parameter set to true.

Code:
        <key>Quirks</key>
        <dict>
            <key>AvoidRuntimeDefrag</key>
            <true/>
            <key>DevirtualiseMmio</key>
            <false/>
            <key>DisableSingleUser</key>
            <false/>
            <key>DisableVariableWrite</key>
            <false/>
            <key>DiscardHibernateMap</key>
            <false/>
            <key>EnableSafeModeSlide</key>
            <true/>
            <key>EnableWriteUnprotector</key>
            <true/>
            <key>ForceExitBootServices</key>
            <false/>
            <key>ProtectMemoryRegions</key>
            <false/>
            <key>ProtectSecureBoot</key>
            <false/>
            <key>ProtectUefiServices</key>
            <false/>
            <key>ProvideCustomSlide</key>
            <true/>
            <key>RebuildAppleMemoryMap</key>
            <true/>
            <key>SetupVirtualMap</key>
            <false/>
            <key>SignalAppleOS</key>
            <false/>
            <key>SyncRuntimePermissions</key>
            <true/>
            <key>ProvideMaxSlide</key>
            <integer>0</integer>
        </dict>

Also I would like to to know the BIOS Config..
I have loaded the optimized defaults and enabled the 4g Decoding and disabled CSM, XHCI Hand-Off is Enabled whether I need to change something or this config is fine?

You could try the DEBUG version from OpenCore, maybe this gives more output on where it fails.
The next step in the boot process should actually be the launch of the Darwin kernel.

Yeah I will try the Debug version....I also like to know whether the BIOS version Matter?
Current I am running "F20" version of the BIOS. Also If possible can you share your BIOS version and your BIOS profile...I think I would have done some settings wrong.

Thanks mate I ll try the debug version now..Once I hear from you I do some changes in bios accordingly.

Strange enough :D
Maybe this is an issue with the monitor resolution.
Try the parameter in UEFI / Output / Resolution. Instead of Max (default) try specifying like 1920x1080
