@Vye I am having same garbled display issue. can you please share your full args? I am using F21 bios on aorus elite with sapphire nitro+ 5700xt.

I have followed the guide in full detail twice or more times, bios and plist settings should be fine as per documentation..


Disable
  • Fast Boot < Check
  • Secure Boot < Check
  • Serial/COM Port < can't find this in bios
  • Parallel Port< can't find this in bios
  • Compatibility Support Module < Check
Enable
  • Above 4G decoding < Check
  • EHCI/XHCI Hand-off < Check
  • OS type: Windows 8.1/10 UEFI Mode < can't find this in bios, but I can confirm windows is booting in UEFI Mode.
  • SATA Mode: AHCI < Check
OpenCore v0.6.1 AMD Zen Sanity Check:

I have tried adding shikigva=128 to args as well as adjust resolution to fixed instead of Max. No luck yet.

this is my boot args -v keepsyms=1 debug=0x100 npci=0x2000 alcid=3 agdpmod=pikera shikigva=128
Let me know whether this fixes your issue...you bios is fine..
I haven't yet upgraded my OpenCore to 0.6.1 but i ll share you my config file...

Hope that fixes your issue!!

Edit: just set your XMP Profile 1 to use your full speed of your RAM...

Xmp profile 1 was already there
It was stated in guide that when "Above 4G decoding" is enabled in bios, then npci=0x2000 is not required, so I skipped that. Big mistake 🤣

Also haven't seen shikigva=128 being suggested anywhere.
When I added ncpi and shikigva both, display is fixed. Still not sure if shikigva=128 is required as when I added that previously without setting ncpi, it was not working.

Adjusting resolution was not required, Max is also working for me as well as 1920x1080

Thank you @Vye 💝💖💗💕💘💓

@Vye I am stuck at second phase of installation.
Boot from usb went fine, it installed mac os 10.15.6 taking 2 hours.
Then on next boot, I used install from macOS installer and now I am getting this error


"macOS could not be installed on your computer

An error occurred while loading installer resources"

I have tried install with
iMacPro1,1

i guess my journey still has long way to go.
P.S, Recovery from this menu does nothing, it just prints an error "OCB: Load image failed - unsupported" and switches back to this menu shown in first screenshot.

@Vye can you please share your ssdt files (I have only one in my config "SSDT-EC.aml", generated by SSDTTime tool).
SSDT-EC-USBX-DESKTOP.aml
SSDT-NVME.aml
SSDT-XHC.aml
Additionally, may be please refer me to guide, how did you come up with these ssdts?

I had 2 extra kexts, AppleMCEReporterDisabler.kext and NVMeFix.kext which I am going to remove from config.plist and try again, after this, Compared to your config.plist, i only have difference of ssdts.

I will share you the EFI you can Take what ever You need....I got the SSDTs from Anti..I still learning to make the SSDTs...You may also need some Apple brcm kexts to enable the WiFi and Bluetooth stuff. Please search for similar motherbord like you they could help you in finding the kexts for your Wireless devices...

Also make your own research before using my USB Mapping that is SSDT-XHC.aml file...you can map your USB yourself if you need...

Cool to see everyone trying to help each other :)

I was curious, maybe my MSI GPU is not supported? Or do I have to do some more work to make it run?

@Vye Bundle of thanks for sharing your EFI and support :love: ♥.
I was able to boot, install and completed the mac os set up today.

I had a funny issue after getting into Mac. When I setup my user, I did not entered my apple id, and just created a new user, Mac OS requires you to provide password twice. After login, mac is not not accepting my password as valid password anymore :eek:, even though I used the frequent used password on mac os, it refused to accept that :mad:.

Don't know if they is known issue or something I might have done, even though I just got inside mac and can say for sure I have not forgot my password that I just provided when creating user 😆 😅

I have tried multiple ways to recover that account just created, including booting into recovery mode -> terminal -> resetpassword, which says no recoverable system is found, and from terminal there I tried to look into my mac volume and /etc/passwd file there, can't see my username in that file.

On to the installation one more time 😂 🤣 😂
