  1. On Arch Linux with Intel CPU. Workstation 14 patched with Unlocker 2.1.1. various configurations tested (smc.version, HW 10, USB 2.0 etc.). Stuck on boot loop with original apple BaseSystem files (10.13). Tried to uninstall and install older versions of Unlocker without luck. Tried to patch the 2.1.1 unlocker with the patch contained in the unofficial 2.0.9 unlocker. No idea where to go from here.
  2. I've got a boot loop as well just my kernel panic message in log is different: vcpu-0| W115: DarwinPanic: panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff801f30fdf0): initproc exited -- exit reason namespace 2 subcode 0x4 description: none This is on Workstation 14 Pro on Arch Linux using an Intel CPU. I converted the BaseSystem.dmg downloaded from the regular catalog (there are two in there?) with dmg2img and then installed qemu and used qemu-img from cli with the exact same command. I used unlocker2.1.1 and could successfully select MacOS as operating system in Workstation. The resulting BaseSystem.vmdk was attached as 2nd disk. Apple on black shows up then immediately reboots.
  3. OS X El Capitan Test Thread

    After restarting the install for PB3 on PB2 (which I only got to work by placing kexts into L/E), the install itself went fine, but afterwards from now on when booting the loader it takes minutes to complete the process bar and stops when it's full. Even with -x. Verbose stops at "Missing Bluetooth Controller" after throwing a bunch of Sandbox System Policy Deny Errors (which don't seem to affect anything). I can boot into Recovery though (where I can see clearly that the update isn't finished still, since I get the "choose language" screen and in DiskUtility the BaseSystem and folders for the installer are still mounted). Do I have to fix USB necessarily to get this to work like explained by pokenguyen? Update: I got PB3 to boot after disabling the "Security configuration" option in recovery partition. I bet this ain't good practice? Also anybody here who can tell me where I would access this option from inside OS? Cannot find it myself.
  4. I ran into this issue today. I actually suspect that in my case it's a modded AppleHDA.kext making trouble. On PB1 I wanted to use Toleda's RealtekAudio Script for Clover to add Sound but had to use the legacy script and put a modded AppleHDA in S/L/E to get it to work. I would revert the kext to test this further but in the clover shell I cannot access S/L/E (that the effect of the new 10.11 permissions I guess?). Gives me a "Cannot move to or from a read-only File or Directory" Error. I'm reading this thread right now where the solution is copying kexts to L/E. Might this be related? If I want to do that the shell says the destination is read-only...sigh... Guess I have to try to boot into my backup and see things from there? Update: After booting into my backup external drive I could see that AppleHDA was actually already replaced by the updater, so I moved on to putting all injected kexts into L/E on the broken osx install, set rights and ownership, touch and reboot. Voilá. Now USB3.0 is dead like described here but as for this issue at least I'm one step further. Actually installing PB3 now hahaha...Let's see what breaks next! Kudos!
  5. Hey folks, I recently moved to another country and left my workstation where I lived before. For several reasons I'm about to make a new build, this time on a more tight budget. I was first setting up the usual ATX mid tower setup I usually do, but soon realized I won't ever do any SLI/Crossfire or huge HDD setups in the future while being here. This lead me to some pretty nice ITX builds on partpicker and I dig the idea of a small layout for my limited work space. Also I love the minimal looks of the Corsair 250D Mini case. This is not meant for any gaming, pure low profile workstation. I would want to triple boot though. Since it's gonna be budget I wanna base this build on a Pentium G3258 which to me it seems is widely used for OC budget builds for it's great performance/price ratio. Any suggestions on comparable processors I wouldn't mind though. As for the GPU I first thought about a GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB SC by EVGA because of it's very low TDP and good price/performance. But it still pushed the overall total too high so I thought maybe a cheap Radeon would fit better for OSX anyways. So I ended up flirting with a R7 250 by MSI. My biggest concern, and reason why I'm writing this, is about competitive alternatives to CPU & GPU and the cooling system for over clocking the Pentium. Also the wifi controller on the MSI Z97I AC motherboard is an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 card. Probably a no-go for OSX? I'm thinking about USB WIFI? I wouldn't mind for one USB less. To boil it down to a short list of components: Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual Core OC Silverstone AR06 40.2 CFM CPU Cooler or Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler MSI Z97I AC Mini ITX G.Skill Ripjaws X 1x8GB (so I could buy another one in some future) MSI Radeon R7 250X 1GB GPU Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD Corsair 250D Mini ITX Tower Case Corsair CX 430W 80+ Semi-Modular ATX PSU I made this list on pcpicker if you want to see parts specs. So regarding my concerns: Do you know if any of this would give me headaches running OSX? (e.g. if I installed an all-in-one water cooler would it be recognized at all by OSX?) Can you think of better alternatives for CPU & GPU? Most mini ITX builds I've seen do use water cooling indeed. Although I've read of enough people who OC well with a heatsink. Do you think the Silverstone would do it? Would you install extra case fans if I went with it? (The case supposedly comes with two from what I read) Thank you for your attention everyone. Any comment is appreciated. Critics won't be flamed. I'm grateful to the community. Kudos Deridjian
  6. Apple News - Spring Forward

    +1 ... Now you gotta buy an adapter to load battery and save files on your working stick at the same time lmfao. This is user exploit, wake up people, design ain't everything. I dig mobile computers with an optical drive lol ... Feels like if Apple wants to encourage more people to hackintosh ...
  7. Worked on my GA-H77-D3H Rev.1.0! Thank you so much!
  8. Copy kext into S/L/E > Repair Perm. > Rebuild Caches, right? Maybe I end up having a 8151? There is no definite description about this board's controller and some people state they got 8161 and some state they got 8151...Can't even find anything on the board itself when opening the case, just the serial of the housing with the LAN plug which leads me to a data sheet. Gonna try with a driver for 8151 and see I guess.
  9. Great contribution to the community. Thank you Mieze! I've got a H77-D3H supposedly with a AR8161 on board. I tried your driver on 10.10 and got no luck. I don't have ALXEthernet.kext installed, I've got Network Stack disabled, can't find a Network Boot option in BIOS (I do have Onboard LAN Controller #1 enabled tho) and don't use any kernel flags, since I'm booting with Ozmosis. The only network option I get in system prefs is a "Built-in Serial Port (1)" which is a dial-up connection. I did a "$ ifconfig -a": And a "$ grep kernel /var/log/system.log" with „Onboard LAN Controller #1: Enabled“: And a "$ grep kernel /var/log/system.log" with „Onboard LAN Controller #1: Disabled“: Maybe somebody got a hint here on what I should do. Thank you in advance!
  10. Fellow Hackintoshers, I used to have a two monitor setup under 10.8.x / Clover which was a bit of a hassle to get to work because of the video ports not working. So I searched all over the place and where else but here on insanelymac did I find people kind enough to explain step by step how to change framebuffers manually. Back then I did like Alexander Martinez did (After following his tutorial, working on my files, I realized my card had the exact same setup, and copied it really) and it worked out quite well! Instead of choosing a framebuffer somewhere in Clover I wrote a patch into my DSDT and everything worked just fine. Now we moved on to 10.9.x and Ozmosis 'came out' (i.e. found it's way into the community). I'm glad to have moved to this bootloader, makes lots of things easier imho. But. After installing Mavericks (clean, complete Re-Install with Ozmosis) and re-editing a new DSDT with my patches, I once again had no video ports. So I edited the new AMD6000Controller's Duckweed frame buffer again, but dang...this time...it...didn't work. I did it again these days realizing that back then I used a Kext Utility not officially compatible with Mavericks, but still...nothing. When I still had no framebuffer forced with the DSDT, OSX decided to use Bulrushes for my card, which gave me wrong resolutions and mouse lags. Apparently this is a problem with 10.9 not with Ozmosis, so I'd love to see if somebody can give me some tips/hints on what to do, on what I did wrong maybe, or what I should try. To make this easier I'm gonna sum up again what I've done: (People take care: This is no solution to anything. It does not work. It's what I have done so far, to make debugging easier!) 1) Patch DSDT with the following: Device (PEGP) { Name (_ADR, 0x00010000) // _ADR: Address Method (_PRT, 0, NotSerialized) // _PRT: PCI Routing Table { If (PICM) { Return (AR02 ()) } Return (PR02 ()) } Device (GFX0) { Name (_ADR, Zero) // _ADR: Address Name (_SUN, One) // _SUN: Slot User Number Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x0C) { "@0,name", Buffer (0x0D) { "ATY,Duckweed" }, "@1,name", Buffer (0x0D) { "ATY,Duckweed" }, "@2,name", Buffer (0x0D) { "ATY,Duckweed" }, "@3,name", Buffer (0x0D) { "ATY,Duckweed" }, "model", Buffer (0x13) { "AMD Radeon HD 6870" }, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-1" } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } Device (HDAU) { Name (_ADR, One) // _ADR: Address Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x02) { "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-1" } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } } 2) Change the original framebuffer "Duckweed" in 10.9.1 AMD6000Controller from: 00 04 00 00 04 03 00 00 00 01 00 00 12 04 04 01 00 04 00 00 04 03 00 00 00 01 00 00 22 05 05 02 00 08 00 00 04 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 11 02 03 04 00 02 00 00 14 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 06 05 3) Into the adapted version fitting for my Sapphire HD6870 04 00 00 00 14 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 06 05 00 08 00 00 04 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 22 05 02 04 00 02 00 00 04 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 11 02 03 06 00 04 00 00 04 03 00 00 00 01 00 00 12 04 04 01 . Hopefully somebody has time and inner peace to help me on this. I know some of you guys are badass smart! Would really appreciate it. Thank you for reading. Kudos Marian
  11. Clover General discussion

    Hello Slice, thank you for your consideration. Yes I extracted the .F14 DSDT with Linux and fixed it. Do you have any links regarding the DSDT being changed by IvyBridge? Sounds interesting. I tried to apply your settings into my config.plist and deleted my custom DSDT from EFI drive. Sadly nothing changed, still stops at the same moment and the debug cuts off at the same line. The one thing I can see is that the DSDT is now patched by Clover. config.plist.zip debug.log.zip
  12. Clover General discussion

    Hello everybody, I recently updated my BIOS from F10 to F14 on my GA-H77-D3H. Wanted to get a fresh install to work but I'm confused. Clover itself boots fine with UEFI. But as soon as I load my disk I get a black screen without any information (that is in verbose mode!!). When I add the OsxAptioFixDrv I get one line that says OsxAptioFixDrv: Starting overrides for \System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi and there it stops. So even being in verbose I get actually no process at all. I tried to read the debug.log but I seriously cannot get any idea from it. From my point of view it just suddenly stops. I must say Clover is still pretty hard to handle. I will attach my debug.log hoping for some help/tips/ideas/feedback. Thanks in advance! debug.txt

    I just commented this issue here. The standard install won't write the GUI into the config yet (r1654), for now you gotta do that yourself.
  14. Pandora's Box (Beta1 Testing)

    Will there be support for high resolutions like 2560x1440 soon? It is getting more and more common.
  15. Clover General discussion

    Hello again everybody, I'm slowly getting desperate over this. I tried so many methods and files and settings I'm getting out of ideads what to really tell I'm doing wrong… I format my USB to FAT/MBR and do a Standard! Installation via Clover Installer r1570. When I reboot my system with the Stick attached, I change the boot order in my EFI/UEFI/BIOS whatever...to the USB Device and reboot. The next thing that happens is just a usual boot from chameleon. The device won't be detected. I then reboot and in EFI/UEFI/BIOS change bootable devices to UEFI only. I reboot and this time the stick gets detected but I get the same screen with placeholders like Fab1Man (With r1570!) I then tell myself: What gives, it's only images. My drives are there. So I boot my 3rd partition, which is my daily-use OSX. (The first two are system backups with the same config as #3 to mess around with updates etc.) What happens next is this: This happens exactly the same way when I - add custom drivers and files on the installed stick as in here - format the stick to GPT and install for UEFI only with the clover installer (this installation fails when formatted to FAT) - try different setups with the installer Some things I am confused about apart from the installer: - Gigabyte states about the GA-H77-D3H on the official website that the BIOS is/has: a] GIGABYTE 3D BIOS (Dual UEFI) b] Use of licensed AMI EFI BIOS c] Support for DualBIOS™ So what the hell is my BIOS/EFI/UEFI anyways? Is it hybrid? Is it EFI? Is it UEFI? I can't tell...It definetly has capabilities to support UEFI, but is it UEFI for that reason? I don't get it...
