Windows 11 won't boot with above 4G decoding turned on

Copper Contributor

I need that setting turned on since I'm dual booting Mac OS with OpenCore and it's required for it. For some reason, though, Windows just hangs on the spinning dots forever. Doesn't even freeze or show an error. I don't know how to turn on verbose boot for that, as the registry tweak hardly does anything, and I can't figure out how to get logs from it.

The only log I managed to get is from the Startup repair tool, not sure if it's worth anything, but I'm still attaching it.


Full specs, if they matter:
Mobo: Asrock AB350M-HDV R4.0
CPU: Ryzen 1700
Ram: 8gb DDR4 Crucial
PSU: FSP Hyper HP500S
Gpu: Gigabyte RX 480 8gb
