#2546030 macOS 10.13.2 Update is out

Posted by GhostRaider on 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.

Hackintosh's Bible!  ^_^Thanks!  B) I've been wanting to update this guide for a long time with new information, especially finishing up the DSDT section but due to other matters I don't have time. Eventually I'll get to it lol.

Ok, can you please suggest me one of that apps, since now I tried to make the bootable USB by command via terminal and with DiskMaker, but both with same result.Pandora's Box

There must be a way of doing that (deleting the video kexts from the installer). Your making things way too complicated. You are not actually going into the installer itself to delete kexts. You need an app that creates a traditional bootable USB installer for the macOS installer. Then you open your USB and then go to the S/L/E folder and delete the corresponding kexts. If you only get the macOS installer app in the USB, it is wrong.

used latest sierra legacy and sierra kext normal-1 after 20mins yellowish line appears.?? QE/CI is working So you get a yellow line for both Sierra and Legacy framebuffers? If so, then the problem is internal and only Apple can fix it. I don't know if they accept Hackintosh bugs. As I said, this IGPU is on life support and should not be a surprise if Apple abandons support for it.

1st gen i3 m370 .. not working . macOS Sierra.. patched version also .. any way to activate it You need to be more specific. What version of the framebuffer normally works for you? Normal one, alternate one? Etc.

It seems Apple optimized the compiling process of AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB, thus the binary code changed and is no longer compatible with the "LinkWidth LW 1" patch. I found a new one by comparing the disassembled code of version 10.12 and 10.11.6. LinkWidth LW 1Find: 498B8C24980600000FB65118C1E213418B766C09D64189766C89B00C000F00410B5668Replace: B9FFFFC7FF418B566C21CA4189566C89900C000F00418B566821CA498B8C2498060000I have post this on pcbeta (http://bbs.pcbeta.co...718645-1-1.html) Tested it on my Acer Aspire 3820TZG (i5 560m) and it works fine. The attachment is patched version of AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext of macOS Sierra 10.12. Attention: this is NOT for LW 2~4. Great work Yishiluo! I'm not sure if people use LW2-LW4 to be honest. I mostly see LW1 working for most. I'll include your patched framebuffer in the pack with the appropriate plist files. Credit is given as usual. The user will have a choice between your framebuffer or the rollback framebuffer. There should be no perfor...

Posted by GhostRaider on 12 October 2016 - 08:00 AM

I know some people are concerned about macOS Sierra compatibility. I have barely updated my MacBook Pro to Sierra. My desktop Hackintosh still runs El Capitan. I don't have time to upgrade it. As for the future of 1st Gen Intel HD Graphics, it will be on life support. In other words future releases of macOS will require Metal support which this GPU doesn't have. The Sierra framebuffer has changed again which means that somewhere in the framebuffer binaries Apple has changed some values. I don't have my Gateway laptop anymore to test. Anybody is free to take over the patching process if they know how to fix it. But any laptop that can run El Capitan with QE/CI can run macOS Sierra just fine. All you need to do is replace the Sierra framebuffer with the one used for El Capitan. It's that simple. Actually, this has worked for every release. I will be releasing a rollback package for Sierra soon. It will contain the original Sierra Intel HD Graphics kexts but with El Capitan 10.11...

Posted by GhostRaider on 13 June 2016 - 08:23 AM

Interesting that you say that. I have a build of 10.10 with chameleon that booted with the busratio=17. I have a clover 10.11 build that will not boot even with that flag. Since clover has the CPU detection it does not work for my system. The 10.11 build still will not boot and I got a large strike through circle when it panics. Any ideas?   It seems it maybe the combo of busratio=17 and cpus=1 that works. I did not think it was cpus=1 made a difference cuz I have used that before without success. Still with both of these flags clover will not boot the 10.11 install. I guess I'm going to try to see how far I get with chameleon and 10.10. Ah I see. Yeah for 10.11 you're getting the prohibited symbol. You aren't authorized to install OS X. Nah just kidding haha. Anyways that just means that your USBs aren't working. Therefore when OS X takes over the USB ports, the external drive is no longer detected, which causes OS X to go into an unknown state. You're gonna have to read on h...

I have got the graphics successfully i was on chameleon, but today i thought of using clover bootloader after installing it. i am not able to get proper graphics i seeling lining all over the display i barely able to see display! anyone help? As explained in the guide, you must do more work (well not really) to get it to work in Clover. Unfortunately, you thought that just by installing Clover it was automatically gonna work. I wish this was the case. You must configure Clover to work with your system. As for graphics, you disable Inject Intel and enable patch vBios. This was explained in the guide if you used Clover from the start. I am still in the same boat. I thought that perhaps after removing the intel hd grapics kext that not rebuilding the kext cache was the issue but still I get an instant reboot. Even single user mode does not work. Must be something else. Anyone have an idea? I don't think this problem relates to Intel HD Graphics. Must be other hardwa...

#2239815 El Capitan on my MSi GE62 for xCode

Posted by GhostRaider on 23 May 2016 - 06:26 AM

Yeah. I think the Intel will be sufficient for just coding. Do I need a separate HDD or if I just partition my HDD, will it be alright? Also will I lose any of my existing data in the HDD if i do partition it?  Thank You.Mac computers use the GPT partition table which is what OS X likes to be installed on. It will not let you install if the installer detects that you are installing it on a hard drive using the MBR partition table. I am not sure what partition table your computer is currently using. Normally when someone wants to install OS X internally on a computer, the hard drive is wiped clean. This is essential if you are planning to dual boot with Windows. That way, you never have to format again.  In your case, it is very dangerous to do this with an existing install of Windows. I would recommend you to not touch the hard drive that has Windows installed. It is possible to install OS X on an external drive. Sure, it would be slower but you wouldn't ris...

But you can actually get these working on desktops?You won't have graphics acceleration if you use 1st gen Intel core desktop processors. They aren't supported by the Intel graphics kexts. But you can use these processors just fine with a dedicated graphics card. That's what your asking right? 1st gen Intel core laptop processors can enable graphics acceleration.

Not true as mentioned here by yourself  :drool:I'm hoping users don't get confused here because I'm referring to desktop processors in this thread. Actually I'm going to write a note there just in case  :P
