In Topic: Best choice SMBIOS

05 January 2017 - 06:19 AM


Do you follow the hardest to choose the best suited SMBIOS? 


It seems to me the most, follow the motherboard - chipset (northbridge, southbridge) and processor used.


My pc:


Motherboard: Gigabyte EP41-UD3L (chipsets: Intel G41 and ICH7)

CPU Intel Xeon E5410. This CPU from connector 771 inserted in the socket 775, but it works ok because the motherboard chipset to support it, after a small modification of BIOS and CPU socket.
GeForce 9400GT
Processors Xeon line E54xx were used in the Mac Pro 3.1 (Early 2008).
Sierra is supported since 2009 iMac (iMac 10.1) and Mac mini (since 2010). But these computers do not have the support Xeon processors
Most SMBIOS suits me just Mac Pro 3.1 does not support the Sierra, but it is not a problem - I can edit file /System/Library/Core Services/PlatformSupport.plist in Sierra (add Mac Pro 3.1), and so has a built-in "drivers" to  my configuration PC.
How is it identified hackintosh you can check here www, after write serial: http://www.appleseri...sktop/index.php





I have a Gigabyte socket 775 that works just fine.  But you have to change the profile (I use a brand new iMac) and bop opt under that to get things sorted.  To be fair I did buy a Xeon processor for this thing.  After install i Changed everything back to a MacPro3,1 BUT you have to change the PlatformSupport.plist to an older version that supports that model.

Would this install procedure work on the GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-UD3 Ultra or GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 boards?  I just wanted to check before I invested in a new system.

Any issues?  I tried to install it and now it hangs up half way through the boot process.   Boot in verbose mode, gets through that and then the white apple/black background and nothing.

SUCCESS!  I got it by rebooting to my normal hard drive and then just running the installer off the desktop onto a blank drive.  Reboot and let the install finish.  Before that I had to change my profile in Clover to an iMac10,1 for the install though and before I changed it back to a MacPro3,1 I had to edit and add my board ID and Model type to the PlatformSupport.plist file inside of System/Library/CoreServices and it seems to be running fine.
