Hello everyone!

I'm trying to get my setup up and running, but I've made a mistake and it's definitely giving me fits. My setup is:

Ryzen 3600X
Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite
16GB Ram

Everyone, I apologize, but I am still in the installation phase. I don't have Catalina, yet. Trying to get it installed.

I installed the GPU, threw Windows on it, but in my attempt to get the Catalina side thrown on, I took out the GPU, put the HDMI back onto the Motherboard, but it gave me a black screen. I've been following the gitMacOS tutorial on AMD Vanilla to create a drive using Open Core, but no luck. The furthest I've gone with the GPU installed with a black screen with an underscore flashing, but without the GPU, I get "No signal" to my screen. It isn't my HDMI wire. It's not my monitor. I've taken out the ram a couple of times and cleaned it, nothing. I cannot even get to the BIOS when the GPU is out, but as soon as I reconnect it, everything is perfectly fine again.

I also tried using the user, anti, EFI config since we had pretty similar setup, but it also said failed to load the config.

I'm sorry for the trouble. OpenCore is definitely more difficult than I thought. The last Hackintosh I made was 5 years ago with UniBeast. I've searched the forum and google, but no luck.

Thank you for reading!

Oh sorry for the big confusion Shane, but sadly, I'm still in the installation phase. I have yet to even install Catalina.

I've seen a failed to load config, but from what I keep hearing, they said installing it without the GPU works better. Sadly, every time I tried to switch back to the onboard HDMI, it says no signal.

The Ryzen 3600X doesn't have integrated graphics. Only Ryzen CPUs ending with G like Ryzen 5 3400G can be used without a graphics card.

EDIT: Only Intel will allow you to use without a GPU in macOS.
