  1. I don't know if you had the same problem I did, but it may have been Lilu.kext. If that was the issue, I have a thread documenting my quest to fix it here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/332734-kernel-panic-after-security-update-cant-boot-into-recovery/
  2. Success! I had to delete and copy everything in Terminal (that was a real pain) but I did it. I had to manually create all the subdirectories and painstakingly copy the files into those directories. After that, from the /System/Library/Extensions directory: chmod -R 755 Lilu.kext chown -R root:wheel Lilu.kext I restarted the computer after that and it booted normally.
  3. It looks like I might be able to fix it. I just found my "Install macOS Sierra" bootable USB and was able to boot the computer off of that. Now I'll try to replace the Lilu.kext and I'll let you know if that works.
  4. Hello everyone, ever since installing the security update at the end of January, I've been having two issues. The first is the kernel panic that happens every time I try to boot. After much research, here and elsewhere, I learned that the issue is Lilu.kext which I did not update prior to installing the security update. So now I have the latest version downloaded to a USB drive, but I cannot copy it to the hackintosh... Every time I try to boot into Recovery, the system just locks up. So I tried replacing the file via the UEFI shell and again from Kali, and in both cases I couldn't because both OS's see the Mac's file system as "read-only." I did some research on how to fix Recovery and found that I need to put FakeSMC.kext in the /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other directory on the Recovery HD, which I cannot do for the same reason I can't replace the Lilu file (the HD is read-only to all other OS's). I tried booting off my old Snow Leopard CD, and that doesn't work either; every time I try it just quits mid-boot, resets the computer and reboots into Clover. Can anyone give me any suggestions? I'm out of ideas at this point.

    Everything works...but no audio

    Success! I downloaded Clover Configurator, opened config.plist with it, and made exactly the change shown in your screenshot. I have audio now! There was a problem at first: when I first rebooted after changing the configuration, the sound worked but objects on the screen flickered, and the computer froze up while playing a video. I rebooted again, and now everything works fine.
  6. So after many problems over the last few weeks I FINALLY got my five-year-old Hackintosh running Sierra. Only problem: no sound. The computer doesn't detect any audio devices. My hardware is a Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 mobo with Intel Core i5-2500K, and under Mountain Lion and Yosemite I used the Realtek ALC889 codec. I should add that when I installed Yosemite I had this same problem, and to fix it I had to install an old driver that was made for Mavericks. That was using the post-installation tool from that other Hackintosh site; I'm trying not to use anything from there for my Sierra installation. I used Kext Utility to install AppleALC and Lilu, but this made no difference. My computer also won't accept DSDTs; every time I've put a DSDT in CLOVER/ACPI/patched, the computer always kernel panicked on boot with "expected 4 threads but only found 5 for die 0." So, I don't think a DSDT is the solution.

    Can't get past kernel panic after install

    The problem has been fixed! The solution: delete EvOreboot.kext (that is a capital O, not a zero). It's in System/Library/Extensions. I had to do it the hard way from the recovery console; that is, open up Terminal and painstakingly delete every file and subdirectory in the kext at the command line. But, after that I booted it off the Clover 3766 USB, told it to boot of the hard drive and it worked! This was without the DSDT. I'm still having a few issues though; when I finally logged into Sierra for the first time, it asked me for my Apple ID and password; when I entered them I was told there was a "server error" and to try again later, so I had to skip that part. Also, the sound doesn't work and the graphics are kind of jerky, but then I haven't done any of the post-install steps. I'll get to that next.

    I finally got around to creating Clover USBs (one with 3811, the other with 4061). The newer one, 4061, does not work at all; whenever I try to boot from it, the computer just tries to boot from the HDD as if the USB was not there. 3811 does run, though! But with that it still can't boot Sierra from the HDD; in verbose mode it just shows a line of + signs and then freezes. Currently googling for solutions...

    Haven't wiped it yet! But, with the new DSDT, I still got the same error, "Should have 4 threads, but only found 5 for die 0." I'll try to extract a new clover version next.

    Unfortunately, that's a .pkg file and there's not much I can do with those when my only Mac isn't working. I'll be away for a few days but when I come back, if I can't figure out anything else to do, I'll probably back up the hard drive (I can boot Kali off a USB to do that), wipe the hard drive, and do a clean install. Thanks for the help! I've definitely learned to stay current with OS updates.

    Ahh...still the same problem.

    I'm using the motherboard's on-board graphics; I didn't install any other graphics card or GPU.

    Thanks, I'd never thought of that! It's a patched DSDT that I found out there specifically for my motherboard & BIOS (Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3-F10). http://www58.zippyshare.com/v/LB39PBNS/file.html

    I tried to attach my DSDT to this post but got an error: "You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file."

    I downloaded a patched DSDT for my specific motherboard that I found on another hackintosh site. I put that in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched and that solved this kernel panic! But now I've got a completely different one: "should have 4 threads but only found 5." I'll do some searching and let you know what works.
