  1. Is there a way to upgrade the Optiplex 780 with E8400 CPU and GT710 from High Sierra to Mojave directly?
  2. Vielen Dank MacPeet, I missed this step before. Now I have audio as well . Fortunately I have no boot loop problems. Some other stuff if someone would face similar problems: I reported recently a shutdown problem: I was not able to completely shutdown my hackintosh. Fyi it was caused by adding a second SSD.. for some unknown reasons. I replaced this SDD with another, now it works perfectly. I had also a weird mouse lagging problem, a really annoying one. I have found out that it was caused by an usb wifi adapter, it was probably to close to the usb receiver of the mouse. I placed the wifi adapter to the front usb plug and the mouse works again.
  3. Since upgrading to 10.13.4 it cannot shut down properly. I stuckts at Failed to unmount /home (45) Failed to unmount /net (45) hfs: unmount initiated on MacOS on device b(1, 8) done I was trying to google around but not success. FixShutdown flag in config.plist doesnt't help, either. Any idea? Thanks in advance. Ps: is there a reason to hide the serial number in the "About this Mac" screenshots and config.plists? I can see that most of you do that.. Is it not save to publish this info?
  4. I also think about buying a Q9400 or a Q9550.. Do you have experience with it, is it that faster than E8400 that it's worth? And do I have to reinstall everything or can I just replace the CPU?
  5. Yeah, exactly, sorry for the stupid question. The recovery volume was hidden before. I tried your config again and sleep and wake works now, thanks a lot
  6. Thanks, i tried it, but Clover showed me two apples like I had two installations. I booted the first one but it was kinda ...hm.. strange. iCloud reported an error with my user and forced to log on again. I have checked the SMBIOS data but it really lookes fine. Do you have an idea why i had suddenly two boot options?
  7. No I haven't installed the Web Drivers. Like you say, the card worked without them oob.
  8. Thanks, I tried your DSDT but it's still the same, it doesn't really want to go to sleep... Apart from that, I don't know what the reason could be. Do have any special settings in config.plist? Any special driver installed? I only installed the EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 and PartitionDxe-64...

  10. Thanks for the quick reply. I'm on HDMI as well and don't inject anything. Is it possible that it's because of the patched DSDT.aml I took from the howto? I mean that one:
  11. First of all thanks for the nice howto and all the hints. I had some troubles installing High Sierra on my 780. With High Sierra I received the "OSInstall.mpkg damaged" error, with Sierra I had the "no signal/black screen" problem. Finally I removed my graphics card and install Sierra by using onboard graphics, which was good enough. After installing I updated directly to High Sierra without problems, inserted again my GT710 and it just worked. It could be a useful hint for beginners that struggle an NVIDIA card like I did ;-) I also got working an Realtek 8191SU USB WLAN Dongle, a Creative USB sound card and a Bluetooth dongle. The only thing that does not work is sleep and wake. If I send it to sleep the monitor goes black but the box keeps running. After a time I can hear that the HDD stops as well, but the box still runs. And of course I cannot wake it anymore. Do you have any idea how I could fix this? Boot time is quite long but it would not bother me if sleep/wake worked. Thanks in advance
