    Hackintool v2.8.0

    Hi headkaze, thanks for the very helpful tool, realy great. Just to gor beyond borders: My USB 3.1 stick reaches maximum 3.0 speed on all 3.1 ports, half of the speed compared with my Macbook. This ist still pretty fast, about 12 sec for a 2 GB testfile. But on my Macbook it is blazing 5 seconds, similar to SSD speed. Its a type A Sandisk Extreme Pro stick. What to do to reach 3.1 speed on my Asus Maximum Hero X? Your tool offers USB 3.0 and USB C, but no USB 3.1. Is 3.1 speed not reachable?
  2. I managed to use my X99 hack system as external USB 3 boot disk on my Macbook 2017. Both computers had the same system 10.13.4 installed. I copied the Macbook EFI folder to EFI partition of the hack harddisk and could boot and work without problems. The hack system was strictly vanilla.

    Bad Perfomance Photoshop / Illustrator

    I‘m using the hackintosher.com EFI and overclocked to 5.1 GHz its the fastest Photoshop computer you can get, incredible. But your 1070 can make the difference, perhaps still the NVIDIA drivers are not optimal. Consider to change to AMD.
  4. No, 10.13.4 with xtrafinder .28 here since release day and never had this problem.

    i9-7900X, i7-7820X and i7-8700K based Hackintosh

    I run a absolutely stable x99 system with i7 5960k processor at 4.4 Ghz, Radeon 580, for sophisticated professional purposes. No hassle at all, no crashes or whatever. i think the same is possible with a x299 system. There is a huge thread at tomatoes "How to build your own iMac Pro" which coveres eyery aspect of x299. Since 10.13.4 and new Nvidia Drivers things seem to be better with Nvidia cards, but still AMD cards are more compatible.

    macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 (17E202) is out

    thanks for the very fast answer. Do you mean okrasit, a KernelToPatch entry? "xcpm performance fix 1 (wrsmr fix to get CPU max) © okrasit/0x199" Yes, I´m using ist. How to update? I got a complete config set so I dont know the source of this patch.

    macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 (17E202) is out

    Hi fabiosun, did you do any benchmarks already? My x99 update also went without problems, just needed the USB patch. But I have very inconsitent benchmark results, a loss between 10-40% computing power. I went back to my old EFI folder, no change. Booted with same EFI folder in backup system 10.13.3 - all benchmarks are normal again. So something must have changed in 10.13.4 concerning x99. Any suggestions somebody?
  9. Great - works with your version, thanks a lot. I had disabled SIP by the way... Is there another way to get this item counter? Perhaps a terminal command?
  10. Thanks - would be great to get rid of annoying expired alert. But with this modifications Xtrafinder 0.27 does not start anymore, no autostart and not by doubleclick. Did modifications twice to prevent mistakes, tried different combinations of patched files. Any thoughts?

    Clover General discussion

    Also on 10.13.3: Clover 4400 ends with installation error. Install Clover in the ESP does no longer work in 4400. Never had this issue before. Just possible to install EFI folder on the system partition. Updating EFI on EFI partition by hand is kind of risky. 4398 still worked.

    Clover General discussion

    I could boot in Clover 4382 with OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi, but had to use slide=128. Without boot stuck at print_f. Thanks to fabiosun.

    5960X Can't boot into High Sierra installer

    I had similar problems at the beginning. There were 2 hardware related issues: CSM needs to be disabled in Bios, I had to patch my GPU. I also needed to patch my Asus Bios to make MSR 0xE2 writeable.

    Haswell E Powermanagement yet another option

    ​Hi, ​ ​I tried PMDrvr.kext on my Asus X99 deluxe and enabled first time since ever EIST in BIOS. Now I figured out that i don´t need PMDrvr any more to have EIST enabled. It was a fixed rule in Hackintoshing: Never enable EIST. Is this a new Clover feature or what is going on? Actually it doesn´t seem to change behavior of the system so far. ​ ​

    AMD Polaris IDs on Sierra / High Sierra

    Hi Pavo, thanks a lot. Using new EFI ended in black screen after boot, system not running. Any idea?
