I have EX58-UD5 here. No trouble with sleep here.


You can try these config files. (FakeSMC.kext version 6.19.1406 with plugins inside)


Using Clover r3543. Look in my signature...


Good luck

Just two questions:

  1. Did you configure your BIOS ?
  2. Do you use my DSDT ? in EFI\CLOVER\ACPI\patched\DSDT.aml

Good luck

Help with Upgrading to 10.11.4 from 10.9.5


I've got a great Hackintosh running Mavericks 10.9.5 with an i7-980x on a GA-EX58-UD5 with a ATI Radeon 5870. Can somebody outline the steps necessary to upgrade to El Capitan from a downloaded Apple Install OS X El Capitan app? I've done so little maintenance on my build that I've totally forgotten how I'd do it. I'm running the original hack installer script version 8.5.3 Chameleon, but could switch to Clover if that is recommended. Thanks for your help.



I switched now for a long time ago for Clover, so I can help you only with that.

In short, but read ..... Clover is using the (invisible) EFI partition present on every MAC formated disk. To see it, you can use any EFI mounter. (Clover Configurator or EFI mounter (http://www.insanelym...28-efi-mounter/)

Everything is managed by de config.plist (inside EFI/CLOVER)

Be aware wich EFI you see and what you change.... !!


Your CPU is (almost) the same as my Xeon W3680 ( I pushed it up to 3.46Ghz in my bios)


I suggest that you install El Capitan on a new drive . There are two options to do it.

  1. You can do that easely from your OSX 10.9.5       Sorry but you have to be already on El Capitan -> look on chriss1111 post 4599
  2. Make a USB drive Clover EL CAPITAN installer

Here a some utilities for the 2 ways made by chriss 1111 for the 2 options


take the r3368 version !  Sorry but you have to be already on El CApitan  ! -> look on chriss1111 post 4599


For option 1 you can take El Capitan HD.app from his site (french !):




other useful utilities:


For your graphic card AMD 5870 try this config:( or use your mavericks solution !) There are different framebuffer types for this card port layout dependent ( Uakari ;Langur;)


When I had my HD4850, my solution was to load VBios put your specific GC bios in EFI/CLOVER/ROM  (the name for your GCrom wil be 1002_6898.rom )    ( you can get it here: http://www.techpower...mType=&memSize=  )



Hereby is my latest (CLOVER) config.plist ( change it for your RIG !)   and DSDT.aml for mobo EX58-UD5 (with good USB support)

I have also made a snapshot of my EFI structure.
