    Hackintool v2.5.5

    Thank you, I confirm Everymac link now works as expected, many thanks. Another missing ID to report, please, for my audio devices I get (null) on my NUC8i7BEH2, please see image. The device IDs are (per lscpi): Also, what is the asterisk for, please? Can you add in your internal database this Intel audio device for 8086:9dc8 ? Many thanks!

    Hackintool v2.5.5

    Hi @headkaze a small fix to propose, in the tab Info > Model > Visit icon: The links that open to everyman.com are totally not related to the item selected in the drop-down list. However, there is a way to make a proper URL, I would like to propose that you use instead: https://everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/?search_keywords=Macmini7,1 Where anything after the = sign should be the model itself I would say 99% of times, the URL that would open will take us to the correct page! Hope this helps. Thanks again for your continuous updates!

    Hackintool v2.5.5

    I was actually thinking of this, mate. Thanks for pointing out. Only compilation is possible from Mieze's repo, however she's already moved on to v2.5.0 while Rehabman only did a critical fix on the latest v2.4.x that Mieze released... Not sure what is more recent...

    Hackintool v2.5.5

    If help is evoked via the menu, it works 100%. If I press on the INFO icons in various tabs (audio, display, USB) I get an empty help dialog/window. Is this normal and expected behavior @headkaze ? Thanks

    Hackintool v2.5.5

    Thanks again, I tried multiple times, with and without Little Snitch, tried right-click to reload content, not sure what is happening. These pages are connected to a server? I don't see network traffic once this is launched, hence my question... But it's secondary, I guess. Thanks again for your releases! P.S. Automatic update (the tick box) not sure if it works, any idea? I relaunched few times and I am still at 2.4.5. How often is the check for updates done internally? Once a week? Just to be sure. Thanks!

    It worked, many thanks mate. Have a good evening. P.S. In the audio tab, pressing on INFO round button opens help but says content is currently unavailable

    Hackintool v2.5.5

    Thank you for your update @headkaze seems to work but I get some double entries. I now get 4 entries in that table. I have kept my EHC1 and XHC1 device names intact (no Clover renaming) but not sure if using FakePCIIDs and the FakePCIID_XHCIMux cause these. The "unknown" parts are inverted vendor and device IDs (please see picture). Any ideas? It's not critical, of course.

    Hackintool v2.5.5

    Hello @headkaze and many thanks for your great work on this tool. Just to inform you that on my Intel NUC D54250WYKH hack, the USB devices appear as "unknown" series still (in 2.4.4), despite being Haswell generation. Here is the LSPCI output that I had registered, please kindly include the device IDs as "Series 8" per https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/8086 Many thanks! 00:14.0 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 8 Series USB xHCI HC [8086:9c31] (rev 04) 00:1d.0 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 8 Series USB EHCI #1 [8086:9c26] (rev 04)

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    Hi again everyone, what is the procedure please to add support for a new controller, per my post above? I refer to the Intel NUC8i7BEH2 set up as Macmini8,1 that is using the ITE IT8987E-VG chipset with ID 0x8987. Obviously adding the model to the code/repo is not enough, can anyone kindly provide more information? It would be appreciated for more models (perhaps) popping out soon... Thanks!

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    Hi everyone, I wanted to ask the more experienced here, what information is needed to properly support a new chipset. @modmike was kind enough to add my chipset and ID in the code and provide a built kext, but it did not show any FAN values. My Intel NUC8i7BEH2 is set up as Macmini8,1 and using the ITE IT8987E-VG chipset with ID 0x8987. What information for proper I/O detection would be needed? How can I find the keys that would be useful? Is it via smcread that's included? If this is the case, I am attaching them here... Can you point to a guide, please? Or at least the Terminal command and output that would be useful to you? Thanks in advance. nuc8i7beh-smc-keys-macmini8,1.txt

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    Hi @Modmike and @vit9696 I have been reading last night the whole thread but could not find a proposed way to extract the chipset info, e.g. via some Linux distro? I booted up my Intel NUC8i7BEH2 with Ubuntu 18.04.02 and in Terminal, installed some packages (proposed on other websites) like lshw and inxi but to no avail. No LPC or I/O chipset found. I have not tried dmidecode or hw-probe to be honest, they are so many, can't see which one is more recent/best. Only trying out sensors while setting them up, I got: Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors. Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): y Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595... No VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors... No VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors... No AMD K8 thermal sensors... No AMD Family 10h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 11h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 12h and 14h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 15h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 16h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 15h power sensors... No AMD Family 16h power sensors... No Intel digital thermal sensor... Success! (driver `coretemp') Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor... No Intel 5500/5520/X58 thermal sensor... No VIA C7 thermal sensor... No VIA Nano thermal sensor... No Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe. Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'... No Trying family `SMSC'... No Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'... No Trying family `ITE'... No Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'... Yes Found unknown chip with ID 0x8987 Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things. We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI interfaces? (YES/no): y Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0... No Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8... No Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports. We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): y Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290... No Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290... No Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290... No Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290... No Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble on some systems. Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): y Found unknown SMBus adapter 8086:9da3 at 0000:00:1f.4. Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found. Any suggestion what tool is best to use to determine the chipset that may be available for fans? I am afraid on this NUC, Intel is not passing control at all to any OS. Also, I have installed the latest Intel Power Gadget v3.3.5 but I don't get CPU Frequency and Multiplier, should we do something more? What is the framework to check is properly installed? Running 10.14.4 with simple boot in Clover r4910 no FileVault etc. therefore sans VirtualSMC.efi. Many thanks to both and everyone here for your input. I se the NUC as Macmini8,1 UPDATE: On a Polish website https://forum.dug.net.pl/viewtopic.php?id=29814 there is a mention of "ITE IT8987D" that some member calls it "a strange chipset" so could that be it? Any idea if it could be supported? NEW UPDATE: The mention if ITE made me seek again the PDF specs of the motherboard NUC8BEB so there is now a clear mention. Who can please help to add it on the repo code?

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    Hi @Modmike I saw that you were pushing some Winbond additions to the repo I have the Intel NUC mini-PC, the model is NUC8i7BEH2 and the motherboard is NUC8BEB per Intel that's Bean Canyon generation; it runs a Coffee Lake CPU i7-8559U. My other NUC that's Haswell generation, has Nuvoton chipset detected per FakeSMC's original kext plugin. Could be that Intel stil uses this brand in the latest NUC models. I had already ran lspci but not sure if this helps, I am attaching this here. You're referring to the "PCI" section of Hackintool? It's a rather new tool and I need to figure out a way to get familiar with it Also, can we build the project from Terminal with Command Line Tools instead of getting Xcode, like in the good old days? Any ideas? Thank you and everyone again! lspci-nn.txt

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    Hi everyone, I decided to give VirtualSMC a go on my NUC8i7BEH2 running Mojave 10.14.4 and Clover r4910. Runs well and the CPU plugin shows values but there are CPU1 temperatures shown twice in HWSensors.app (v6.26.357 used) I think it's either "Ambient" or "Motherboard Proximity" but cannot be sure. I would also like to ask you how to find the chipset so we can add FAN support, please, is there some Terminal executable that would reveal this chipset? The motherboard NUC8BEB specs PDF has no mention... I am not a n00b hackintosher but when it came to SMC I did not fiddle about, as FakeSMC and plugins worked on my two older Haxies. Thank you in advance for pointing me to the right tool so that I can report it and kindly ask anyone of you accessing Acidanthera's repo or @vit9696 to add the values officially...

    Lilu — kext and process patcher

    I sure hope not a H/W problem with my NUC OK I have updated both Lilu and AppleALC to latest, and reverted IntelGraphicsFixup tho the one available (from April). Rebooted and will see what happens. No, I am not using any boot args, my setup is pretty much vanilla (even my config.plist) as most simple fixes are done as DSL/AML files in "patched" folder of Clover (studied @RehabMan and @sebinouse posts and Git files, when I got this older but compatible NUC last year). Any ideas to investigate and report, are welcome! Many thanks again, mate. config-2018-06-24.plist

    Lilu — kext and process patcher

    Hi @vit9696 and everyone! Many thanks all for your continuing support on these kexts. I originally wanted to ask you @vit9696 for your comment/support on your GitHub but saw your message there and thought of starting off here. First of all, please take some time to update the URLs in your automated message as the one pointing to "Lilu and its plugins" is not valid I accidentally discovered last year your IntelGraphicsFixup kext that I started using together with AppleALC and Lilu, of course, when you switched to it some time ago. As I am using HD5000 it was handy for the boot glitch and those problems with Safari and video playback that you seem to have resolved (Safari was getting sluggish). Recently, I am having my screen going randomly black -- monitor seems to lose sync, as I see on my Dell the icon for the port, meaning a signal was lost for a moment. I was trying to see since when this started, I suspect the latest Security Update 2018-003 or with Clover r4558. Not sure. Running Sierra 10.12.6 with Security Update 2018-003 on my Intel NUC D54250WYKH and latest (today) Clover r4586; most of my fixes are patched AML files, my Intel HD 5000 Graphics [8086:0a26] is declared as 0x0a26000d (desktop) and my config.plist has no kext patches at all (i.e. no "boot glitch fix"). Finally, I use Lilu v1.2.3 and AppleALC v1.2.7 together with IntelGraphicsFixup v1.2.7 (that I removed, for now) all three placed in /Library/Extensions/ that ran fine until recently. If I update to Lilu v1.2.4 do you think it may prove to be useful? What kind of logs/output do you think you may require to better identify the issue? I cannot say that monitor going black is reproducible as it's random, not sure even if it's related to Safari (I think not) as it happened when I had rebooted, too. Thank you again for your time, if anyone encountered the same issue, your kind feedback/assistance is appreciated! K.
