In Topic: macOS 10.13.2 Update is out

07 December 2017 - 07:37 PM

Updated via macOS update installer downloaded from apple's web site.


This was the first time I've ever encountered an issue installing an update. Upgrading to Clover v4334 and updating Lilu.kext, AppleALC, and Nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext were essential.


When I tried updating through Mac App Store, the installer was corrupted. After downloading the macOS 10.13.2 update from Apple directly worked. Not sure why Mac App Store version didn't work for me.

Updated to Clover v4233. I noticed that NvidiaWeb under SystemParameters in config.plist no longer enables the Nvidia Web Drivers without adding nv_drv=1. Was this an intentional change? Before v4233, only having NvidiaWeb set to TRUE enabled the drivers without nv_drv=1 flag.

Hi GhostRaider! What an incredible amount of effort put into this guide. It's very clear and easy to follow. This wil be my first hackintosh attempt and i'm very happy i've found your guide.

However, i see the Clover and the msi-h81m-motherboards-pack download links don't work anymore. Can i use the Clover version available in the forum's download section? Does that pack is absolutely neccesary? Can i get those files anywhere else?

Sorry about my english, it's not my native language.


Thanks a lot!

The motherboard's pack is not necessary for this guide.

I'm at a loss. Struggling to get the USB stick to load the OSX installer for Yosemite 10.10.10.

I havent built a Hackintosh in awhile but I had enough spare PC parts from work to mash this thing together. This is my 3rd Hackintosh and the first time I've been unable to get to the installer.



Yosemite 10.10.10

MSI H81M-E34 board

Haswell i5-4440

Single Stick 4GB DDR3 RAM



Followed the guide yet during the Verbose setup I hit a "hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20"

The system hangs for a bit then goes to the black screen with white Apple logo with loading bar. I can see and move my cursor and then a beach ball of death happens and the system hangs there not doing anything.


The only deviation I have is that the Clover 2.3K Special Edition Installer is no longer on the site. I ended up using Clover 2.3k r3270 I had from setting up a different Hackintosh. When that failed I used the latest Clover 2.4k r4049. Both give the same issue of hanging at an Apple logo with a loading bar unfilled and beach ball of death. I've also tried getting the installer to launch with both HDD and DVD drives unplugged to no avail.


Followed the guide right up to the install point, right after where the guide notes the deprecated information. I attempt to carry out the install and that's where I'm stuck now.


-16gb USB 2.0 stick formatted HFS+ with GUID partition

-Make bootable Yosemite 10.10.10 media on USB

-Install Clover; UEFI and ESP selected only

-Run Clover Configurator, mount EFI, set ACPI, set Boot, set GUI, set Graphics, set Kernel and Kexts, set RT Variables, set SMBIOS, set System Params, set Drivers according to guide

-Save config.plist to EFI

-Eject USB safely

-Put USB stick into USB 2.0 port

-Set mobo to IGD

-Hit F11 and boot UEFI: USB STICK

-kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0 nv_disable=1 -v (I also tried with -f, dart=0, ncpi=0x2000)

-System hangs at "hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20"


Any clues as to where I might have gone wrong?


That's a pretty funny verbose message lol. Well if you are in fact using the same motherboard as mine then it should be very easy. Though I'm not sure why you want Yosemite if you can use Sierra just fine. For this motherboard you need iMac 14,2 SMBIOS, OsxAptioFix2Drv, KernelPM enabled, AppleRTC enabled, igPlatformID 0x0D220003 if using Intel HD 4600. Now I use a custom SSDT so you will need to enable GeneratePStates and GenerateCStates. For USB, Ethernet, kexts are placed in Clover kext folder.




Other than that, this motherboard runs almost vanilla macOS. Not sure why you're having problems.

In Topic: [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

12 April 2017 - 04:34 PM

I've a Dell e5410 i5 560m, I've tried all the solution in this guide but now the notebook show full resolution 1440x900, no artefacts and no glitch, the only problem is that there's no Graphic's acceleration and a Mac without  QE/CI is not a great experience!

Any solution?


Dell e5410  i5 560M 4GB ram  Monitor 1440x900 HD Graphics 40 Hz

Yosemite 10.10 SMBIOS MacBookPro6,2



Who can help me, please? I tried everything, but without result. I have a sony vaio vpceb4b4e with intel i5-480m. Please, help me!


I believe both of your computers are not supported by the framebuffer. Sony computers never worked. Dells, only a few. It has something to do with how the display is connected, most likely eDP.
