    I just want to say thank you very much, MaLd0n.  Not only does my system seem to run smoother, after 20 months on this Hackintosh it finally stays Shutdown.  No longer do I have to wait until the fans turn off before I switch the power supply off in the back.  That alone is a great feeling and a testament to your computer savvy and acumen.  I have little idea what you did with the Clover and DSDT fixes but I will peek to try to learn.
     
    I will become a regular donor.
     
    Thanks again,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  I've been trying to reinstall Sierra on my Hackintosh for months but finally succeeded by using this link.  I can't believe it.  I'll delete the Chopintosh install in a few days after finalizing this install.

    Ok.  Starting now.
    I have been attempting to install Sierra to SATA II SSD because of its stability.  That failed to load Nvidia drivers so now I will attempt to install High Sierra on the m.2 SSD using the above link.  LinuxMint and Windows 8.1 are both installed on their own old platter drives.

    Mikentosh2016 reacted to p.H in What does "Vanilla" mean ?   
    Original Post (Italian) : http://www.insanelym...l-dire-vanilla/
     
    Generally speaking, we say something is Vanilla when it's as "pure" as its producer did in computing world. (The term Vanilla is mainly used in an unix environment to indicate that the Kernel is without any modifications) Regardless of the fact that it's really difficult to have a hardware which is 100% compatible with the operating systems from Apple(AKA OS X or Mac ), so we use the word "Vanilla" to describe that the kernel of the operating system is pure. And here are some examples:
     
    - Let's say I have a real Macintosh: I have a system 100% Vanilla .. Why ?
    For the simple fact that the hardware is fully compatible, and therefore the software (Kernel, Kext, Applications) did not require modification (in other words patch).
     
    - I have a Intel Hackintosh: I have a system almost 100% Vanilla .. Why ?
    The reasons may be due to the fact that even though some minor changes to the software (and its various components ) need to be made.
     
    - I have a AMD Hackintosh:I would not have a Vanilla .. Why ?
    The reasons are due to the fact that the Apple hardware does not provide support for AMD processors (currently only Intel and PPC),so it's impossible for us to use a Vanilla kernel.
     
    What does "patch" mean?
    It means that you have to make changes (eg to a Kext)
     
    What does "binpatch" mean?
    It means that you must make changes to the binaries (applications, generically commands)

    you need to increase EFI partition if you want to dual boot with windows in uefi mode,,
    if you still can't, maybe you need to use kernel patch for your CPU..

    So you can boot to your hackintosh without any errors?
     
    If so you don't need to use the iMac if your hackintosh can boot into desktop. If you have IOAPIC24-119 entries in the BIOS it's not necessary to update the BIOS but it could be better. It's up to you.

    Everything here seems normal the only thing you need to check is under "Chipset" see if IOAPIC24-119 Entries is available and is set to disabled.
     
    On your iMac plug in a USB derive and format it with Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) and with GUID partition scheme.
     
    Type “diskutil list” and press return/enter
     
    You’ll see the list of all the hard drives connected to your computer. find the external,physical
     
    Type “diskutil mount /dev/diskXsX” and press return, first X is the number of the USB HDD and the second X is the number of the partition
    e.g.
     
    /dev/disk6 (external, physical):
       #:                       TYPE NAME                             SIZE                             IDENTIFIER
       0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *62.1 GB                             disk6
       1:                        EFI EFI                                 209.7 MB                            disk6s1
       2:                  Apple_HFS 10.12.5                    61.2 GB                              disk6s2
       3:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD           650.0 MB                           disk6s3
     
     
    Now you can see the EFI partition is mounted no the desktop, if you can’t see the partition on the desktop you can find it in finder window’s “Sidebar” under “Devices”
     
    Once you mounted the EFI partition of the flash drive copy the “EFI” folder inside the “EFI” partition and eject the drive and plug it to your hackintosh.
    Upon boot press F12 key on the keyboard and you’ll be ask to choose the device you want to boot from.
    OR
    Just install clover on the USB drive with your iMac which it will mount the EFI folder in the process and the replace the EFI folder with the one MaLd0n posted earlier.

    F22 BIOS is out for your mainboard and I suggest you update your BIOS.
     
    F5 BIOS doesn't have the feature for disabling the "IOAPCIEntries 24-119 Entries" which is necessary to run macOS, unless you edit the BIOS manually. There is another essential update which affected many Gigabyte mainboards and that's adding UEFI entries each time the computer reboots which is resolved and maybe that's why you couldn't get to UEFI BIOS settings.
     
    So first of all Update the BIOS, then go to BIOS and "Load Optimized Defaults" then take a look here:
     
    BIOS Settings:
    In BIOS from M.I.T. choose Advanced Memory Settings
         I. From Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.) I Choose [Profile1] it's crucial to choose this option if you want your memory modules work with their full frequency.
     
         II. Enter the correct System Memory Multiplier which in my case based on my 2666MHz DDR4 it must be 26.6.
     
         III. Select [Enhanced Performance] from Memory Enhancement Settings. You can choose any of the options I chose Enhanced Performance.
     
         IV. From BIOS Features Fast Boot is disabled, Windows 8/10 Features is set to Windows 8/10 WHQL, LAN PXE Boot Option is disabled, CMS Support is Enabled, Storage Boot Option Control is UEFI Only, Other PCI Device RPM Priority is UEFI Only and Network Stack is Disabled and Secure Boot State is Disabled.
     
         V. From Peripherals: VT-d is disabled, Internal Graphics is set to Auto, Audio Controller is Enabled, Audio DSP is Disabled, PCH LAN Controller,SATA Configuration is set to AHCI, Wake on LAN and High Precision Timer are Enabled. I didn’t patch my BIOS because of a great job that Pike R Alpha did with a kext based patch for Skylake processors and to patch the AppleACPI.kext.
    Under ​Super IO Configuration Serial Port must be disabled as well.
     
    UPDATE: I recently updated my BIOS to f5h and IOAPCIEntries 24-119 Entries is there so if you are using that version of the BIOS or anything prior to original f4 you don't need to use the ACPI patch.
     
         VI. Save your new settings and reboot.

    Ok, we need to use your iMac for now to create a bootable USB for your Hackintosh.
    But unfortunately the version of your Mac OS X on your iMac is a bit older than I thought but we'll give it a try anyway .
     
    On your iMac:
    1. Plug in a Flash drive, preferably and empty one. Format it using Disk Utility and use Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) and select "GUID Partition Map" as partition scheme, you might need to click "Options" while formatting the flash drive
     
    2. Download Clover Configurator from: http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download-clover-configurator/
    From “Tools” section choose “Mount EFI” then select your flash drive and click “Mount Partition” 
     
    Copy the "EFI" folder I posted inside the "EFI Partition" on your flash drive and then use the flash drive to boot your hackintosh.
     
    If Clover Configurator failed to launch on your iMac, we have to take another approach.
    but for now let's give it a try!
     
    Edit:
    In order to format the flash drive properly you need to select "Partition" tab and then click "Options" and so on.

    Have you updated the BIOS to F22? If you didn't do so.
     
    Plug in the flash drive and go to BIOS and on each page in BIOS press f12 that will save a snapshot of the BIOS page inside the EFI partition of the flash drive, mount the EFI partition in macOS and compress the pictures you saved and post them here to see what's wrong.
     
    or
     
    Make sure the following settings are as follows:
     
    In Peripherals, Trusted computing, Security Device Support = Disable
    In Peripherals, Super IO Configuration, Serial IO = Disable
    In Peripherals, USB Configuration, XHCI Hand-off = Enabled
     
    in Chipset, VT-d = Disabled
    In Chipset, Internal Graphics = Enabled
    In Chipset, IOAPIC 24-119 Entries = Disable
