  1. Hi, thanks for the tip, but unfortunately those two options are set correctly so this doesn't appear to be the issue. I was wondering: Does Clover have something like bcdboot in Windows to repair the bootloader? Perhaps it could be more effective than an update/reinstall. I'm probably going to wipe out the whole disk and start anew with Sierra so I guess it's not pressing but I'd really like to know what's behind the issue in case I need to follow the same procedure in the future.
  2. Greetings, I had a fully working 10.11 installation via Clover on an SSD along with Windows 8.1 (dual boot). Today I was having many issues with Win (nothing unusual, sod it!) so I decided to install Win10 on another SSD and because of yet another plethora of Windows-related problems, I had to unplug my main drive (the one with OS X and Clover on it) from the motherboard to make the installer work. When I re-attached it, Clover did not show up. I figured it might be due to changed boot order but there is no UEFI option in the boot menu either (it's usually something like UEFI: P1 Samsung PRO 512GB, now it's without the UEFI bit). The partitions are intact and I can still boot into Windows, yet when I try to boot from the OS X partition, it does not work (normal black screen, insert media, press any key). I did not change any UEFI /“BIOS”/ settings, swap the SATA port, or make any alterations to the drive whatsoever. As my next step, I installed Clover on a USB drive and successfully booted into the main OS X partition on the SSD through it. I successfully mounted the EFI partition and confirmed that all files on it are intact. I then re-installed Clover to the OS X partition (the installer considered it an upgrade), but to no avail—nothing has changed after a reboot. Now I'm sitting here and wondering what could have caused this and how to fix it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find another person with the same problem so far. Any help will be appreciated. Cheers! For what it's worth, the board is a GA Z97X Gaming 7 and here's a part of the Clover install log: Clover EFI installer log - Sun Oct 9 21:17:51 CEST 2016 Installer version: v2.3k r3793 EFI bootloader ====================================================== /dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *512.1 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS OSX 255.5 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 4: Microsoft Reserved 134.2 MB disk0s4 5: Microsoft Basic Data 255.6 GB disk0s5

    Yosemite: Audio - Realtek ALC AppleHDA

    Ten months after installing my first Hackintosh and using only HDMI sound I just ran the script, y-enter, y-enter, y-enter, restart, and boom, it works. Thanks very much! (Clover, ALC1150, Yosemite 10.4.)

    Occasionally corrupted images

  5. Greetings, I'm using Clover to run Yosemite 10.2 on Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 7 with i7 4790K and GTX 970 with the latest Nvidia drivers. Occasionally, images are displayed corrupted like this: Similar corruption sometimes happens when I use Preview to export an image, which doesn't happen with Photoshop, for example. That leads me to believe that this is an OS X problem, possibly specific to Hackintosh. I've been searching for similar issues, but to no avail. The rest of the graphics is alright and it doesn't happen on Windows so the GPU appears to be fully functional. Any suggestions, please? Thanks!
  6. You're right, many thanks!
  7. Greetings! My new Hack appeared to be stable until I decided to use Paragon HFS+ for Windows. At first, there were minor issues during boot every now and then but it was able to repair itself until yesterday when it could not. Long story short, I completely wiped out the disk and reinstalled everything again, pledging to never interact between the two partitions from Windows again. However, when I run Verify Disk in Disk Utility now, it reports: Error: The partition map needs to be repaired because there’s a problem with the EFI system partition’s file system. It can be repaired, which I choose to. Ends alright with nice green text, but when I boot into Windows and back into OS X, the error is present again. (When I choose only the OS X partition, the message is: File system check exit code is 0. That, I believe, doesn't indicate a problem.) My question is whether that's normal behaviour, and if not, what could be causing it and how can it be prevented? Thanks!

    Show Desktop mouse binding gone after restart

    Note that it seems to be Hack-unrelated and fairly old – this is why I sometimes hate Apple so much! Edit: After two days of frustration, I've settled with a workaround by installing USBOverdrive and configuring the mouse button to invoke F11, which seems to be working alright.
  9. Here is a simple solution to get audio working over DisplayPort (or HDMI) and use the system (including the keyboard) to control the intensity. 1. Download HDMIAudio.kext using the link at the bottom of this post (credit: andrejkw). 2. Mount the EFI partition and copy the kext to the usual location (/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10 for Yosemite). 3. Reboot. The audio device should now be available, however it does not let you control the output (by OS X design). Also thanks to hlrsellsout for discovering this kext and spreading the word! To enable system audio control, set up sound routing to a virtual sound device (credit: Matt Montag; you can also use his guide): 1. Download and install Soundflower. 2. Reboot. 3. Open Soundflowerbed and configure Soundflower (2ch) virtual device to use the DisplayPort/HDMI device (in the menu bar). 4. Open System Preferences > Sound and select Soundflower (2ch) as the device for sound output. (Alternatively use Audio MIDI Setup from /Applications/Utilities to set up the same along with alerts and sound effects.) Now you should be able to control the sound intensity using the system interface and keyboard.

  10. Greetings! I've set up my mouse Razer DeathAdder Chroma to use Button 4 to show Mission Control and Button 5 to Show Desktop, however after the restart, only the former was working. Whichever button I choose in System Preferences > Mission Control to Show Desktop, it simply doesn't work. I have confirmed that the buttons send the correct signals. The only way to reset the feature that I know of is to remove ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.symbolichotkeys.plist, restart, and assign it again. However, the file does not seem to be changing after the restart. Any idea what's going on, please? (If necessary, I'm using the latest Clover, Yosemite 10.10.1, GB Z97X Gaming 7, and i7 4790K.)

    Windows 8.1 installer says GPT is MBR

    That's exactly what happened and now it's working perfectly, thank you very much! Should anyone encounter the same issue, it might be worth mentioning that the Windows installer wasn't able to reformat an HFS+ partition and I additionally had to erase it and create a new one in the free space (the installer can do that). There's my first Hackintosh set up in less than 24 hours since the components arrived, which is absolutely fantastic. Many thanks to the people who help the OSx86 Project evolve – it's splendid.
  12. Greetings! I've sucessfully installed Yosemite on my new machine (GB Z97X, i7 4790K) using Clover in UEFI mode so it's time to install Windows to run some games, however when I boot from Windows install USB drive, the ruddy windows tell me that they can not use the free partition because it's MBR instead of GPT, which it isn't. Disk Utility in OS X clearly shows it's GPT: Partition Map Scheme : GUID Partition Table Disk Identifier : disk0 Media Name : Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512GB Media Can you tell what's going on and how to fix it, please? Thanks!
