  1. Hi @stinga11, First of all, thank you for all your help all these years. If you must know, your posts regarding X79 has been my go-to source in installing the latest OS every year. This High Sierra has been the hardest for me. Actually, even Sierra's 10.12.6 is. I'm not sure what really changed after 10.12.5, but I've wasted days to make it work to no avail. FYI, I'm using a 4K monitor and the best configuration I can get for 10.12.6 is it boots to the desktop except my 4K monitor is only at 30Hz. So it's unacceptable so I have to return and stay at 10.12.5. Anyway, my problem now is since I can't even make 10.12.6 work, it's a lot harder for me to make 10.13 work. In fact, I've spent about 3 days already and I still can't even get Clover to finish the boot sequence just to even get to the Installation part of High Sierra. And this makes me wonder: What changed exactly? What additional steps should be done to make High Sierra work for our X79 systems this time? (My proc is 3930K btw if it matters) What SMBIOS is appropriate now that could make my 4K monitor work at 60Hz and boot into desktop? Other new info we must know? So, here I am asking for any help from you if you could give me tips/suggestions on how to make High Sierra work for my Gigabyte X79-UP4. I believe you have a different mobo, but I'll take whatever tips/suggestions you can give me just so I could be on the step towards the right direction. I would really appreciate a reply from you mate! Thanks in advance! Cheers! JD Apolo

    Gigabyte X79-UP4 macOS Sierra (SUCCESS)

    Hi guys, this is the first time I was able to read all the comments in my original post. So happy to be able to help you all. Special thanks to @mitchellkza for helping out the others and figuring things I forgot to include. I'll try checking this post every once in awhile to see if anybody needs any more help. Cheers!

    Gigabyte X79-UP4 macOS Sierra (SUCCESS)

    Hi guys! Sorry for not being able to visit this forum in a while. Anyway, the original files were deleted. I compressed another one for all of you asking. Cheers! https://www.dropbox.com/s/vgxsdi87ra975i4/X79-UP4%20Files.zip?dl=0
  4. Hey guys! Took me about a whole day to figure this out but I finally got macOS Sierra (latest GM release) working for my board. Here are the specs of my Hackintosh. Mobo: Gigabye X79-UP4 Proc: i7-3930K Mem: 4x8GB 1866Mhz Corsair Video: NVIDIA GTX 680 SSD: Mac Here's my EFI (change them to just EFI and put at your EFI partition): X79-UP4 Files.zip For Audio: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kq1ce8dhkecnvox/audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0b0.command?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nvk89cddwe58c3h/AAAqdic9IrzXSBGKbFUvuM_ba?dl=0 Instructions: 1. Burn macOS Sierra your usual way. Put this EFI folder to your EFI installer partition. Upon installation bootup, change the nv_drv=1 to nv_disable=1 until installation completes etc. 2. When you first get to your desktop (still with nv_disable=1), run the AGDPFix program to get full resolution for your NVIDIA card. (If after booting, the screen is black, hard restart then make sure to change the nv_drv=1 to nv_disable=1) 3. To enable audio, mount your EFI partition then drag the audio_clover file to Terminal. Reboot and everything should work now. Congratulations! Everything works (USB3, SATA, Audio, Video, etc) (Sleep I'm not really sure as I seldom leave my Hack on when not in use) I hope this could help some people to save you guys time and energy from figuring it out. Cheers!
  5. any update on this one? will be installing with this mobo tomorrow morning. any help? thanks!
  6. Any update with this for eSATA 64bit? Need it badly.
  7. Hi zhell! I keep on trying to patch my dsdt.aml to be able to fix USB UHCI in order for me to have sleep working. But I really can't get it to work no matter what. Can I ask a favor if maybe you could patch mine for me? I would really appreciate it. By the way, my mobo's ICH9 also Asus P5K-SE. Thanks in advance! Cheers! Here's the dsdt (Im sorry for the spaces--hope it wont get blocked as I believe links outside the site are not allowed): http:// www. sendspace . com / file / 4ktfs5 JD Apolo
  8. Hi I noticed that we have the same mobo. The P5K-SE. Do you happen to have a patched dsdt.aml that contains the fix for USB UHCI to enable sleep. I hope you could email it to me at jdapolo@gmail.com or through here.

    I'd definitely appreciate it so much. Thanks! Cheers!

  13. Oh yes, thanks acbardakci! I forgot about that part. You have to edit the Info.plist of PlatformUUID.kext (right-click on the file then choose Show Package Contents) AND of the file com.apple.Boot.plist too both from the Extra folder. For PlatformUUID.kext <key>PlatformUUID</key> <string>59271646-4C5F-3D17-8FEA-20903C07862B</string> <---EDIT THIS PART WITH YOUR UUID For com.apple.Boot.plist (You can check your UUID through Disk Utility) <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>boot-uuid=59271646-4C5F-3D17-8FEA-20903C07862B</string> <---EDIT THIS PART WITH YOUR UUID That should bypass many of the user's "still waiting for root device" issues. Make sure you update the mkext in the Extra folder btw after editing PlatformUUID.kext. Use the Kext Utility to do that. Thanks again acbardakci! Hi Sirius, that's easy. Just delete the boot file in the root first then copy the new boot file. That's it! I am. And jeez, I hope more people could experience the super snappiness of Snow Leo. As in, it boots in seconds! And almost all the programs, especially native ones like Safari and Mail, open in a snap--NO BOUNCING DOCK ICON while waiting for the programs to open anymore. Currently working with a video project using After Effects, Premiere, Final Cut and Photoshop. And since I have to boot into Leopard sometimes, I get to really "see" the speed and snappiness difference more. So just hope for the best guys and keep on trying! Make my current experience an inspiration, and I really would, if I could help out more. Can you tell me more about your system? Which port are you using? Which devices are attached? Make sure you update the mkext in the Extra folder btw after editing PlatformUUID.kext. Use the Kext Utility to do that. Hi, I can't really answer that more because my board is P5K-SE. But if you could give us more info about your machine specs, maybe we could help too. Thanks! Oh and it's JD Apolo (with a single L) by the way. Lol!
  14. Thanks Sirius! I generated the dsdt file using DSDTPatcherGUI_1.0.zip from PC wiz. I just used the generated file as is. Hi Wally! The evo kext I think is for an ATI 4870 specifically. What's your video card? I think what you can do is remove it then install the driver specifically for yours. Either through other kexts or adding the GFX strings to your com.apple file. Which SATA are you using? Try 1 first because I also got that when I was trying it in other ports. Which step are you already? It would be great if you could post a screenshot too. But I can say that it's already a good thing that you were able to boot into the desktop. Anyway make sure you're not flagging to -x32 because that's how I get that KP before. Guys, I think it would good if you could post a screenshot of where you get the KP and also which step are you already in. And your system specs too. Cheers!
  15. Thanks for the mirror Wally! Yup, I already tried installing that Sleepenabler.kext. There are two files I downloaded: One is 115kb then that one which is 135kb. I tried putting each of them, first in the Extra folder then I refreshed my mkext with Kext utility. Both files didnt work in that folder so I tried using Kext Helper to put each of them in S/L/E but still, no go for it. When I choose Sleep, the LCD just turns off but all the fans and LEDs still work as is. Nothing happens if I move the mouse, type on the keyboard or press the power button. So I think it's a no-go for now for us. But well, let's just hope for the best.
