    Gatekeeper issues

    You're quite mistaken but I clearly will not convince you on that matter. You're simply running all those OS X/macOS versions in limping mode and are happy to do so "for the sake of it"; that's fine. Stating that you got "Mojave running on GeForce 6200", it's just a little short, not to say anything else that may cause offence... Then, a graphics card does not support such or such version of macOS, it's the opposite. What would be useful for you to realise is that Dosdude1's patcher was primarily aimed at real Macs. Your Hack does not need this patcher, you can make a full vanilla Mojave installation on your platform without Dosdude1's tool. I gave you a link that provides a procedure. You've not fully understood how things worked. But that's fine too.

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave 10.14.5

    I am talking about 10.14.5 Beta 1 which is what this topic is about. I don't have a Radeon VII to test stability. I am running on two Vega 64 here.

For Wi-Fi: - 1st method:You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it -2nd and I think the best method:Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Zcard (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon Issues: - None BIOS Settings: - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant) - Secure Boot: Disabled - Touchpad: Advanced - Boot mode:UEFI Getting ready for Installation: - Download the install zip (bootpack & postinstall): Click here -> acer_aspire_v591g_installfiles.zip Installation: - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager) - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder - Boot with the Installer USB - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation! If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"): ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict> PowerManagement fix: Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13): <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R.

Before updating to a new version of Mojave please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics. Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New) Mojave & Windows 10 Dual-Boot: Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only: Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac), Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart, Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition). Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only: If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope: I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description). (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB) Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created. Restore from image: select your full system restore image. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb. When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS! (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.) IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE: - Make sure you have partitions in GPT - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors. IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc): - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB) IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found): - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI, but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows: 1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part(Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b(This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out!

    If you get the Unknown CPU in About This Mac you can use the following settings according to your processor. Use IORegistry Explorer or IOJones to check the current "cpu-type" value for your processors. You can find the value by clicking the CPU0@0 like shown in the picture below: I have an Intel Core i7 6700K so the value is 0507. For Core i3 Series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0309 = Core i3 For Core i5 series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0407 0x0601 or 0x0605 (to be more accurate) = Intel Core i5 For Core i7 Series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0701 or 0x0705 (to be more accurate) = Intel Core i7 You can also try 0x0507 if the values above didn't work. For Xeon Series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0505 Dual-Core Intel Xeon 0x0510 Quad-Core Intel Xeon 0x05A5 Quad-Core Intel Xeon

    As many know, those have come from world Windows/Linux, Hibernate mode has helped a lot when we want to avoid the wear on our notebooks, besides which the system always wakes up faster, and we can still leave some open applications when we turn to the PC with all the things ready. The safe sleep/hibernation mode in OS X is turned on by default (on Laptops). Your Mac will immediately sleep when you do any of the following, regardless of your Energy Saver preference settings: Choose Sleep from the Apple () menu Click Sleep after pressing the power key Close the lid of a portable Mac What happens when the Mac goes to sleep (not just into idle mode or display sleep)? On all Macs: The microprocessor goes into a low-power mode Video output is turned off, and a connected display may turn off or enter its own idle state Apple-supplied hard disks spin down; third-party hard disks may spin down On portable Macs: The Ethernet port turns off, if applicable (see note below) Expansion card slots turn off The built-in modem, if present, turns off (see note below) An AirPort card, if present, turns off (see note below) The USB ports only responds to the power key on an external keyboard (see below) The optical media drive, if present, spins down Audio input and output turns off Keyboard illumination, if a feature of your portable computer, turns off A computer uses considerably less power when in sleep mode than when awake. The computer will continue to power RAM in sleep mode, so that whatever was in RAM when the computer went to sleep will still be there when the computer wakes. This also means that computers with more RAM use slightly more power in sleep mode. For Sleep/Hibernation works in Hack you will need certificate if all necessary patches is already applied in DSDT and SSDT. And the power management (i.e. CPUPM, GPUPM, HDD/SDD) your bootloader Chameleon/Clover are all correct, Sleep will work. Hibernate Now we know how sleep works, let's go for Hibernate. As I said the safe sleep/hibernation mode is native only in Apple's Laptops, so if you have a Laptop this trick will be good for you. You can also enable Hibernation Mode for your Desktop Hackintosh, but is not so useful as it is for Laptops. What do you need? Notes: Since version 2514 the Sleep/Wake function is working. Hibernate mode works natively in Legacy, but you can also use UEFI. Works from OS X 10.9.1 up. (Does not work with OS X 10.9.0) Don’t work with Chameleon. We have news that there is success in UEFI mode with OS X 10.7.5, if you work with another version, let us know if you test. This guide worked for me in version 10.9.2/3/4 and OS X 10.13.x Let's make this method with Clover installed in the root, Legacy 1 - Last version of Clover installed - Download here. [it is recommended to do this using version 2513 or latest] 2 - Find out which method is being using in your Hack, with this command: pmset -g | grep hibernatemode 3 - To Hibernate mode to operate properly, run this in Terminal: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 29 4 - Put your OS X to Sleep, after 1 minute your system will shut down completely. 5 - Press the (On/Off) power button 6 - Now the boot screen of Clover (GUI) will appear - Note that this must be written (Hibernated) 7 - If you put your system to start with countdown (e.g: 5 secs, 10 secs) do nothing, the system will start in Hibernate mode. 8 - But if you have no countdown, press ENTER on the partition that you have enabled the Hibernate. 9 - Now this loading screen will appear, about 10 seconds. And Voila! Go your login screen appears, enter your password (if any) and ready, Hibernate mode works. 10 - If you want to start in normal mode, or if you have a problem, check in Clover (GUI) screen and press SPACE, and select "Cancel hibernate wake." But if you still have problems, run this in Terminal: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 With this command, the Sleep mode back to native way. Let's make this method with Clover UEFI. Follow steps 1-5. (Above) Understand my friends to work in UEFI mode is not easy, requires several, yes several tests. See an example of the user droplets (ProjectOSX forum) ,similar to mine, but with different configurations: On my machine works like this: Version of Clover: 3368. Lenovo G480 - OS X 10.9 /10.10 and 10.11 Boot args used: Slide = 100 Hibernate: Used hibernatemode = 29 Drivers64 UEFI: DataHubDxe-64.efi, FSInject-64.efi, HFSPlus.efi, OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi, EmuVariableUefi, OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi. In some cases, OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi or OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi can be a problem, so remove this driver. But maybe someone has any doubts: Can I use these same drivers you used? Answer: Yes and No, why? See when using the UEFI mode, each driver that is important for the required loading of various BIOS (Gigabyte, H20 Insyde etc...). See which combination is right for you: Choosing EFI drivers And these various values boot args? This is what you will test later. I've tried many values, these were the ones that have given me the best results. And now, how do we know if it works? 1 - The phrase (hibernated) must appear on the boot screen, and show the loading bar. 2 - Let marked on your config.plist this option: After the system came back, go EFI> CLOVER> misc, and open the debug.log file, and check these lines: 32:460 0:032 PrepareHibernation: 32:580 0:119 read prefs \Library\Preferences\SystemConfiguration\com.apple.PowerManagement.plist status=Success 32:597 0:017 SleepImage name from pref = \private\var\vm\sleepimage 32:613 0:015 returning previously calculated offset: 32C82A000 32:629 0:015 SleepImageOffset: 32C82A000 32:644 0:015 02 01 0C 00 D0 41 08 0A 00 00 00 00 01 01 06 00 | .....A.......... 33:180 0:535 02 1F 03 12 0A 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 04 04 18 00 | ................ 33:730 0:550 33 00 32 00 43 00 38 00 32 00 41 00 30 00 30 00 | 3.2.C.8.2.A.0.0. 34:262 0:531 30 00 00 00 7F FF 04 00 | 0....... 34:668 0:405 boot-image before: PcieRoot(0x0)\Pci(0x1F,0x2)\Sata(0x0,0x0,0x0)\32C82A000 If so, congratulations your Hibernate is working. I can report that here everything is working perfectly. Both in UEFI as Legacy See the official post from Clover - Clover Instructions If you encounter problems, see the official post on the hibernating mode in ProjectOSX. NOTE: Many have had success using the 29 mode, but if it does not work, try using the 21 way, or another. sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 21 Bonus. A quick explanation about this commands: pmset -a hibernatemode 0 will save sleepimage only to RAM, this will be Sleep only. pmset -a hibernatemode 1 will save sleepimage only to Disk, this will be a kind of "Soft" Hibernation. pmset -a hibernatemode 3 will save sleepimage to RAM AND Disk, this will be Safe Sleep, first the system will Sleep and later Hibernate. pmset -a hibernatemode 25 will save sleepimage only to Disk and Remove Power from RAM and some more devices, this will be "Real" Hibernation. What commands the way that OS X will Sleep/Hibernate, is one of the commands above, there is no "Hibernate" option in OS X like you can see in Windows and you have to choose always Sleep at the "Apple" logo of your MenuBar... To have sure that your sleepimage isn't corrupted, run the command below... sudo rm -rf /private/var/vm/sleepimage A new sleepimage will be generated at the next time the system goes to sleep... All the thanks go to: Dmazar, Slice, Kyndder, and alutam.com. Bonus for Mac users: If you have a real Mac, and wants know how use the hibernation mode, you can read this excellent article made by Rahul Saigal. Note: This guide has not been tested in macOS High Sierra yet...

    I updated my Sierra hackintosh tonight and graphics broke again. Build 16G1918 is not compatible. :grumble: Edit: For giggles I chatted with support at Nvidia and they informed me that they do not have a fix and that I need to roll back my upgrade. When I asked how long for an update to be released for the driver the reply was "we cannot comment on that." Edit2: Nvidia just put out updated drivers for 16G1918. I don't have a link, but they installed via Preference Pane.
