  1. A new issue has emerged... The system seems to automatically increase brightness as if I am pressing the brightness increase keys. I did not have this issue before and it first started appearing a few weeks ago. I cleaned the keyboard multiple times. It could be software related. Has anyone else seen a automatic brightness increase issue?
  2. Somehow I am back to this issue... No WIFI and No Bluetooth.. I keep screwing this up... Can someone look at my EFI folder and tell me what I have done so that there is no wifi and no bluetooth... EFI.zip
  3. this is my current EFI Not sure what to do now... EFI.zip
  4. The CPU is now in the Z-370 board... I have two working EFI's in other systems that "dont work" on this board... I alternately get the following screens with igpu... Unsure what needs to be modified in the EFI folder...
  5. Spent the weekend swapping CPUS to/from two identical Asus z-390F boards and a z-370 aorus gaming 7... Both CPUS's were in working systems. These are an i3-8100 CPU 3.60GHz and an i9-9900K. Was able to install monterey etc with the i3-8100... Had extreme problems doing the same with the 9900k... The system would freeze and hard crash... disk reads would be off... during boot ssds would be labeled as unreadable... changed the BIOS multiple times... the 9900k would work one second and then the system would freeze the next... The final system I used was stripped to a bare bone systems using only igpu... I had been using an RX580 board or rather boards... _________ Has anyone encountered a situation where a formerly working cpu suddenly becomes error-prone...
  6. I have had to jump through all these hoops to get i-gpu working on these boards... "other sites" have all these mechanisms... SO that's why it seems so strange...
  7. OK Its strange though... I made the current adjustments and adjusted the BIOS graphics memory to the max (I forget the exact setting...) We have 4k now... Are this minimal settings kosher?
  8. Initially, was not able to get the UHD 630 to drive a 4k display... Was able to enable 4k on internal CPU by setting framebuffer-patch-enable to zero... Now the question is : Do I need to have all these other settings? And is setting framebuffer-patch-enable to zero the proper fix for this? EFI.zip
  9. I am able to boot to Monterey with this EFI folder... BUT the initial boot menu background is RED... How do I fix this? EFI.zip
  10. the EFI hung at a certain point... It was a long boot process... Will get pictures when I attempt this again... (needed to use the machine)
  11. ICEGalaxy Can you post your install USB EFI? I can try it here on my machine...
  12. Has anyone attempted an install to this laptop? My efforts so far have not been successful, I have not even been able to get it to the install screen. Just checking if anyone else has attempted this. I know there is a graphics card support issue.
  13. So it does not like it when the computer is turned off (power off)...
  14. I updated the BlueToolFixup kext with the new build... Same issue... As everything else seems to work fine on the laptop, I will just wait for that kext to be further updated.
  15. Its very strange... Bluetooth worked... and senses (slowly) new devices.. But it does not seem to be able to connect. Unsure if it is a kext that's set to be activated or deactivated which is the issue...
