  1. Cool, thanks, I'll add the debug option and take a look at the log and see what I can find out. So far the graphics kexts are loading ok and the system is running ok. I think I might leave the thread open a little longer just in case someone else pitches in and shares their experience about this glitch. IDK if the info I've provided (ioReg and loaded kext list) is enough to debug this issue. Do you think I should post the Clover debug log?
  2. Hey Allan, so sorry for the late reply, been swamped with work. I gave your plist a try but same results, graphics kexts just randomly stop being loaded after a few reboots. I then went back and replaced your plist back again with mine and tried to edit mine just to see what works: I simply removed all the strings under Graphics (the other ones were like ATI = NO; Intel = NO; Nvidia = NO; NvidiaSingle = NO) and just left the Inject => Intel = YES and then left the same ig platform ID that I've been using (0x01620005) and after a few reboots it works - graphic kexts are loaded properly. I'll see if this holds up though. I'm thinking that there's a glitch with the current version of the CLOVER bootloaded that I'm using and that it's not properly recognizing my config.plist or some other system parameter is intermittently preventing the graphics kexts from being loaded. Do you know if there's a way to take a look at the kernel loading logs to see what's happening (like a way to read the verbose mode text output)?
  3. Well, I tried your suggested ID but no dice. Oddly, these settings fixed the issue: went back to edit my config.plist in CLOVER configurator and tried these things in the order listed: (1) intel gfx DSDT fix (ACPI/DSDT/Fixes/FIX_INTELGFX_100000) (2) under Devices I added a Fake ID for Intel GFX (0x01628086). This is how I came about that number: when I looked at the clover BOOT.log, I noticed a line that said "Fake ID Intel GFX: not set" and then it said "beginning Intel GFX auto-detection with ACPI injection ==> Found FakeID Intel GFX = 0x01628086 ==> Intel GFX revision = 0x9". So that gave me a clue that I needed to enter that Fake device ID under the Device section in Clover (have no clue if that helped though) BTW these are the exact text lines from BOOT.log: 360:418 0:000 Intel HD Graphics 4000 [8086:0162] :: PciRoot(0x0)\Pci(0x2,0x0) 360:418 0:000 Found Full HD Display - 16:9 :: Width=1920 Height=1080 360:418 0:000 AAPL00,DualLink = 1 360:418 0:000 FakeID Intel GFX: not set 360:418 0:000 ig-platform-id = 0x01620003 360:418 0:000 Beginning Intel GFX auto-detection with ACPI injection 360:418 0:000 Found FakeID Intel GFX = 0x01628086 360:418 0:000 Intel GFX revision = 0x9 360:550 0:131 codec not detected 360:550 0:000 stringlength = 2996 360:550 0:000 CurrentMode: Width=1920 Height=1080 360:550 0:000 Beginning FSInjection then I went into graphics, clicked "Inject Intel" and selected the same ig platform ID that has been working before I had this issue (01620005). Restarted and I had graphics acceleration again: system information shows the HD 4000 IGX with 1500 MB and when I looked at the loaded kexts I once again saw all the relevant video kexts loaded: AppleGraphicsControl AppleGraphicsDeviceControl AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy AppleIntelFramebufferCapri AppleIntelHD4000Graphics I've attached a new IOreg to see if you can spot any difference. I've also attached an old CLOVER config.plist (when I had the issue) and a new one (after being resolved) to see if there's anything off (all I could notice was the ACPI intel gfx fix and the Fake Device ID for the Intel GFX). Finally, I've attached the clover boot log just in case. Send me Ernest’s iMac.zip config (old - not working).plist.zip config (new - fixed).plist.zip clover boot log.rtf
  4. nope, just selected the IDs available in clover configurator (the graphics section) from the dropdown menu under HD 4000 (desktop) and the only one that gave me the proper amount of shared video RAM (1500 MB as opposed to 4 or 7 MB) was the 1620005 (the two 166000 didn't work). But I'll give the 1620003 ID a try and see what happens. I still think the problem might be cuased by Play on Mac + Quartz X11 program because I literally just turned on the computer, installed those programs, restarted a few minutes later and then suddenly lost graphics acceleration. Is there a way to just revert all the previous kexts or system configurations?
  5. Hey guys, here with a very unexpected issue out of the blue. I have a fully working OS X Sierra (10.12.3) with an Ivy bridge CPU with HD 4000 (using ig platform ID 0x01620005 in Clover) and had full graphics acceleration (Intel HD 4000 recognized and 1500 MB of shared video memory recognized in System information). After installing play on Mac and the required XQuartz X11 and rebooting, I no longer have graphics QE/CI. I removed the Quartz app and deleted some file in opt/X11folder on the system drive to get rid of it but it seems that it's interfering with the loading of the appropriate graphics kexts (I can see the HD 4000 IGX under system information but no graphic kexts are loaded - i.e.AppleIntelHD4000Graphics.kext, AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer.kext, etc.). I didn't make a full hard drive backup of my system so now I'm really stuck and I'm not very experienced at Hackintosh builds (this was my first succesful build). Here's my IOReg in case you need it. Let me know what else I can provide and I'll post it ASAP. Thanks my IOReg-1.zip Send me Ernest’s iMac.zip
  6. Thanks Hervé, I ended up rigging the PCI mounting bracket cover that the PC had to fit the 4 antennas through it. The card is working really well BTW, I'm getting good speeds (even though the PCIe 2.0 X1 only gives me 500 MB/s up/down bandwidth at least that's good enough for file downloads and in-home video streaming to my windows PCs ) and awesome BT and Wifi ranges! Thank God I didn't have to mess around with any more kext patching and DSDTs! I still have one tiny bit of an issue though, my USB 3.0 header is not being recognized as Hi-speed hub (only USB 2.0) when I looked at my System Information. I think I might start a new thread to see if I can get it fixed. I'll mark this thread as solved
  7. Yea, plugged in the card and everything works great! I got BT and Wifi. Just one last tiny issue though. As you can see from the specs of my PC, I need low profile PCI mounting brackets to run the antenas to the outside of the case but the adapter that I bought (from OSXWifi), like many that are sold online on Ebay, etc., have full lenght (or full profile?) PCI brackets. Can you recommend me any brackets to buy (they need to have at least 4 wholes for the 4 antennas that my adapter came with)?
  8. Thanks for the reply Hervé! I'll hook up the card as soon as I get it today and I'll keep you posted on the results. BTW, quick question, how do I make sure I have the IO80211Family kext that you mention. I ran a kextstat command on the terminal and I didn't see it there. I looked over the install.log on my /var/log directory to see what the installer did and even though I didn't see anything indicating that the installer messed around with that kext, how do I make sure? Thanks!
  9. Hey guys, I'm a total beginner in Hackintosh but I've so far managed to install Sierra (12.3) on an old HP Pavilion Slimline 400-034 pre-built PC and everything seems to work fine (except USB 3.0 ports from mobo headers which are only recognized as USB 2.0) with some mods: FakeSMC for hardware monitoring and other compatibility stuff, Auto install of audio and network kexts; fixed chipset kexts: Sierra USB fixes like USB 3.0 [not working though], USBInjectall; FakePCIID kexts for USB 2/3 patch for 7/8/9 series mobo some other fixes like backing up several apple kexts like power management, AppleHPET, Policy control, MCEDriver, etc.) injected intel HD 4000 hardware IDs to use apple's native graphics kexts Here's the HP support page with all the hardware info for my PC: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03791266 I swapped the Pentium G2020 CPU for an used Intel Core i5-3475S (with HD 4000) and added another used stick of 4 GB DDR3 1600 RAM (total of 8 GB) However, as you can see from the hardware specs listed in HP website, I have an Atheros AR5B125 half-lenght mini PCI-e card that is obviously not natively supported by MacOSX, so I want to get a Wifi+BT card that is natively supported without any custom kexts or any DSDT patching, etc. just something that is plug & play. I read around the forums that the BCM94360CD (i.e. this one sold by OSXWifi), which is pulled from 2013 iMacs and similar models, work natively with Sierra. However, since I have installed so many custom kexts, and done so many modification, I'm not sure if my system will be capable of using such a card once it's connected over PCIe X1 port (with the provided adapter that even has the antenas to mount in PCI brackets). So, could anyone, pretty please, look at my system configuration to see if it'll work with the above mentioned Wifi+BT card??? Let me know what kind of system info you would need and I'll pots it ASAP! (I'm guessing ioReg and that stuff but I'll wait for you guys to tell me) Thanks everyone beforehand for reading my long post; I'm so close to building the most extreme budget hackintosh to full capability!!!
  10. Tried that but no luck Ah well, I guess I give up I don't have too much time to work on this due to work issues and I don't want to take more of your time, mas muito obrigado @MaLd0n por toda a ajuda, realmente aprecio todo o tempo que você tomou ajudando-me Embora, eu tenho outro pc com uma antiga placa gráfica integrada (HD2500, Intel Pentium G2020) que estou tentando fazer funcionar (tudo funciona exceto os drivers de vídeo; seems that HD2500 is not supported) so I might start another thread soon, mas essa é uma história para outro dia obrigado novamente, adeusinho
  11. Well, all the kext in my S/L/E folders are like 730 MB and I only have 130 MB available in my EFI partition so I cannot copy all the kext files in S/L/E to CLOVER/kexts/Other. Which ones should I copy?
  12. Ok, so I'll copy and paste all the kexts in S/L/E to CLOVER/kext/other. Then I will delete all kexts in S/L/E ? And before restarting I will run Kext Utility app so that the app rebuilds cache? Is that sequence of events correct?
  13. wait, but you only gave me like 3 kexts in the CLOVER/kext/other folders. Do you think I should go to my S/L/E folder and delete all of my kexts and just put the 3 kexts that you gave me? wouldn't that mess up my system?
  14. I'm not sure I understood your instructions, so let me make sure I got it right before messing up my system lol. Do you mean that I should first replace the "CLOVER" folder in EFI partition with the one that you just provided in the link and then use the kext utility app to install the kexts that are located inside CLOVER/kexts/other into my system/library/extension directory? Then, which kexts should I remove and where are they located?
  15. After following all the recommendations I still get video signal loss and shortly after the computer restarts. I've attached a link to a short video (~50 seconds) of the bootup process in -v mode https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ak4c30mmhon1gaUGCDxJiTowhVYOCg so that you guys can see where the bootup process fails P.S. as you'll see I have another hard drive connected with some other test installations of OSX but I'm not using that hard drive (I get the exact same results if I physically unplug that other "test" hard drive from the PC) BTW, thanks for all the help so far MaLd0n, I know how difficult it is to help newbies like me all the time with how hectic life is so I really appreciate your help!
