Technical Specifications of the PC:

Processor:
AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX with Radeon Graphics, 3301 Mhz, 8 cores, 16 logical processors
RAM: 16.0 GB
USB Controller: AMD USB 3.10 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.10 (Microsoft)
Wi-Fi Network Card: Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160MHz
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon Graphics Processor (0x1638), compatible with Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Encountered Problem: After inserting the kext AirportItlwm_v2.2.0_stable_Ventura.kext for the Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160MHz card in my Hackintosh with macOS Ventura, I am experiencing a black screen problem after the kexts load during startup. The PC goes to a black screen and shows no signs of life, while without the kext, the system seems to start up correctly.

I have tried adding various boot arguments in the config.plist, but the problem persists. I suspect there may be a compatibility issue or a conflict with another kext. Any suggestions or advice on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

What brand and model laptop do you have or I assume you have? Might help someone help you, also config.plists are only half of what is needed to be able to understand what you are loading. It's best to zip and upload your entire EFI folder. Edit: I see your are using macOS Ventura.

Have you tried using the AirportItlwm.kext from the Alpha 2.3.0 release? The Ventura kext from the Alpha release may work better than the current one you are using.

UPDATE!!
I changed the EFI, and with these settings, it manages to boot everything in 1/4 of the previous time. But using both AirportItlwm.kext Alpha 2.3.0-alpha and Alpha 2.2.0-stable the problem remains. I saw that in the kext installation the following BIOS Configuration is required:

  • Fast Boot: Disabled (which is present)
  • CNVi Support: Auto (absent)"
I changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro16,3.

The model of the laptop is: Zenbook 14 Flip OLED (UN5401, AMD Ryzen 5000 Series). I tried with MacOS Sonoma, it didn't work (with the kext AirportItlwm.kext), so I wanted to try with MacOS Ventura, but it didn't solve anything.

A small question, do you know if it's possible to insert the mentioned kext maybe once entered in recovery mode through the terminal, or use another alternative method to enable internet (perhaps through iPhone USB tethering)?

I am waiting for the stable version to be released.

USB to ETHERNET adapter might be your best option for internet while in Recovery mode.

I have never used iPhone tethering during the installation phase, so I have no idea if that would work in Recovery mode.

I've tried with USB tethering, but it didn't work. Do you have any adapter recommendations? (I own an Alfa USB-WiFi adapter, model AWUS036ac, but I couldn't find the kexts)
