Nice one but that’s also strange. Why would using 4 sticks of memory be an Issue?
Yeah that would make sense as if just one sub timing differs it can chuck the whole thing off kilter. I use A set of Hyper X Fury RGBs myself. I was using some Corsair Vengeance Pros until a few weeks ago but discovered that every now and again they would cause my MotherBoard to throw a wobbly and I would have to short and clear my cmos to bring it back to life. That’s what happens when you try and carry across old Intel optimised ram onto a Ryzen system. Them AMD CPUs can be well touchy when it comes to memory can’t they The cheeky buggers?Well the problem must be because I had two Kingston HyperX Predator 8GB modules (which I had tested before and I was just able to install Catalina and Big Sur successfully using them) so I bought another two modules with the same frequency but they are HyperX Fury so either there are incompatible with each other (which they shouldn't be) or those new modules are problematic, so I will swap them tomorrow and try to clean install macOS with the Fury ones and see what happens.
The problem is If the timings of two sets of modules are different then it’s going to change one set to match the other and thats where instability’s would come into play because the settings it changes one set of modules too might not be stable. I would never recommend mix and matching unless every single timing lines up.Thanks for the info man I will finish the beast and I'll add the final touches and I will defiantly add the kext, thanks again for your support and time I really appreciate it.
The funny thing is that I just added all four modules and Big Sur is just started the second installation phase so my assumption is that the memory modules must have not been seated properly or something else might have been going on. Once the macOS is installed I will stress test the memory just to make sue they are OK.
Where can I find your EFI? Do you think it's ok for my hardware setup? ThanksMy EFI will work just fine with your X570 Elite just make sure you disable the USBMap.kext and remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments and thats about it. You can also use the Bios Settings laid out on my thread.
That halt isn’t related to the EFI though bud, unless agdpmod=pikera is effecting it (doubt it). Maybe try recreating the installer.
