Hi guys,

I'm recently droped my Gigabyte B450m DS3H and it was working flawlessly from Big Sur to Monterey Beta 5 with the new patches.. But now on my new board, MSI B550m Mortar Wifi, i'm facing seriously difficulties... I simply cannot install Monterey on the latest stable Bios version. And I have alrealdy tried everything. Like someone described here before, it points some NVME error.

While scrambling the OC settings to find some solution I somehow messed up my EFI and now I cannot even install BigSur.. It enters recovery starts to install and suddenly reboots. =/

If someone find the solution, please share with us.. For now i gave up trying..

It would help if you shared your EFI even a borked one.

@dnlzzxz If you are using a 3000 series Ryzen or older then You need to roll your bios revision right back until you find a working version that will allow Monterey to boot but If you are using a 5000 series CPU then theres nothing you can do currently To make it work with 12.0 Beta3 or newer.

They sure do (y)
Wel... I can't update to Monterey... But I can log in to Big Sur with these patches. IDK what's wrong now.

EDIT: Nevermind, it's working now. Monterey fully functional.

Hi, there,
Did you try to update for Monterey BETA 7?

Once I changed Misc -> Securebootmodel -> j160 then downloaded updater,
before reboot, I changed "j160" to "Disabled" or "x86legacy".
But I couldn't update.
There is still "Mackintosh HD" on Boot Picker.
I select it many times, it's fail.

I'm still in "21A5506j"....

Beta 7 doesn't like to install on SMBIOS with T2 apparently.

But you can work around that:
Copy your EFI to a USB and set SecureBootModel to "Disabled" and SystemProductName to "iMac17,1"
Leave your main EFI on j160, use the EFI from the USB stick for the first reboot.

But be aware, Beta 7 remove drivers for Kepler - no Nvidia at all from here on out.

Thank you for your replying.

I tried your way, but still back Beta 6.
Something wrong for me.

Try again but this time do it like this…,
Have your standard EFI the way you have it normally on your main drive with the SecureBootModel set to default or disabled and also a copy of it on a usb installer.
Go into the EFI on your usb Installer and change the SecureBootModel to j160 then restart and boot back up via the Efi on the usb installer.
Start the update for beta 7 and while it is downloading go back into the EFI on your USB Installer and change the SecureBootModel to Default and then under platforminfo->Generic change the SystemProductName to iMac17,1, Save the config.plist changes And let the install do it’s thing.
Once the system restarts for the first time make sure it’s still running off the usb installer EFI and let the installation continue but as soon as it restarts again select your EFI from your Main Drive instead of the USB installer and let the installer complete and that’s it.
It should work with no problem If you do it exactly how I just said.

So far with my laptop I’ve had no luck getting beta 7 to even show up with both OC and Clover, going to try again tonight but I’m also going to try on my AMD rig using the method above. Will update later.

Beta 8 is safe to update.

OpenCore 0.7.4 is required with SecureBootModel set to j160 to show the update. While downloading the update switch it back to your current config. In my case with MacPro7,1 it's set to Default.
