  1. Thank you for the hint! Unfortunately, after installing it (and also disabling the kext-patch in Clover), it still does not work. kextstat shows me that it's loaded, but it still shows it as unsupported. Maybe I need internal WiFi for it to work? Because I'm on a desktop with an ethernet connection only.
  2. What drivers do you use in your drivers64UEFI Folder? Do you have an AMI UEFI? Here I found something regarding ACPIEC: https://medium.com/@ayushere/common-problems-and-workarounds-in-hackintosh-85d76ad89d24
  3. Strange... the firmware is updated, but I still have no Handoff or Instant Hotspot. - my BT device is supported according to Rehabmans readme - dropped kexts BrcmFirmwareData and BrcmPatchRAM3 in /Others - applied Handoff-Patch in cfg plist as shown in Rehabman's readme - USB ports are fine, like sorted and working - cat /var/log/system.log | grep -i brcm[fp] gives no errors But my hackintosh still says nein and nein Hmm, I think I am missing something...
  4. Also check your UEFI, there is a bios option for some mainboards to wake up at a certain time. pmset may also have a feature to show the devices that wake up or prevent system from sleep IIRC.
  5. This happens when no iGPU is detected what would be the case here because afaik the gfx in a VMis usually somehow emulated. You can try to use the alternative file, like I wrote here and see if it works. In any case you need to enable hardware acceleration in the bios and VMWare, (VMx IIRC?).
  6. Hey So I got Sidecar working on Catalina with my (unsupported) iPadAir 2 and like to share it with you. usually Apple only allows Sidecar on the following devices, so if you have one of them, you probably don't need the patch. However, if they still do not work with your hackintosh, you may give this a try. • 12.9-inch iPad Pro • 11-inch iPad Pro • 10.5-inch iPad Pro • 9.7-inch iPad Pro • 6th generation or later iPad or later • iPad mini (5th generation) • 3rd generation iPad Air So let's get started What do you need - working USB (obviously, the patch is USB only) - a working iGPU - Catalina - iOS 13.1.2 (aka. newest by Oct. 2019) 1. In the terminal, do sudo mount -uw / ; killall Finder 2. Open finder and move to System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/SideCarCore.framework/Versions/A/ 3. rename or backup the existing SidecarCore executable. 4. drop the attached SidecarCore in the folder. That's it. Enjoy your new display! Credits: The patch can be found on Macrumors posting from Jackluke, who probably also did the patching: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/sidecar-has-anyone-got-it-working.2184104/page-11?post=27807001#post-27807001 SidecarCore

    macOS Catalina 10.15 is out !!!

    I'd recommend to update clover to the latest version and take a look in the beta topic to apply needed patches and update kexts like lilu if necessary. Have patience during update process and wait for the reboots, even if your screen goes black. If you check for a stucked installation process have a look at yout hdd led and wait. Bad signs are always repeated patterns of led flashing, or no hdd activity for mote than a couple of minutes. In this case, boot verbose and see what it says and if you have pcie graphics, temporarely disable your IGPU. If still stucked, try safe mode or vga boot.

    Yeah, strangely you need to do a Safari update first. At least it was like that in my case.

    APFS fusion drive crashed / split

    Turns out my previous mainboard was the same model than yours. (Z68AP-D3 v.20) I ran across a different problem when I tried fusion drive about 5 years ago. Sometimes I was unable to boot and it turned out to be the OsxAptioFix driver in my drivers64UEFI folder at that time. Because fusion drive was relatively new at that point, I had to set it up manually from the terminal. For reference I dropped you the guide I posted at rampage's blog plus the archive link to the blog entry he made out of it. The easiest solution would be to just find a real Mac, connect the drives via USB and fuse it together with the disk utility. If I remember it correctly, this also worked at some point. If this is not an option, I would first change the AptioFix Driver in Clovers UEFI64 folder to see if another one works. There may be a chance that OSX magically combines your two drives together again. I know this board had boot issues due to UEFI sometimes. There are I think 2 or 3 drivers that already come with the clover installation and probably one or two modified on the net. Since it's a long time gone, I am sorry that I can't simply share my setup files anymore. - Always use only ONE AptioFix Driver at a time, not two or more. So make sure your UEFI folder only contains one. - I strongly recommend to try the different AptioFixes with a Clover booting from a USB stick in order to be able to boot again if a driver shouldn't work. There is a good chance that at least one driver may not work. If you want to look more into it, here is my old guide with the terminal commands for the manual setup of a fusion drive that I posted on Rampage's page. He worked it over and added it to his blog at this time. It's old and from Mavericks but I think it doesn't matter because your problem may be on a deeper level. This is the old comment: https://rampagedev.wordpress.com/os-x-10-8-mountain-lion/fusion-drive/#comment-7164 And more importantly, since the blog is gone, here is a backup from archive.org. be patient, it may take a while to load: https://web.archive.org/web/20150825011033/http://www.rampagedev.com/?page_id=308 Hope that helps.

    Not sure if this will help you but you can try to merge it back: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT207584
  12. Hi, sorry for the late answer. I ran across the same problem when I first tried VirtualBox as a VM. AFAIK it had something to do with the UUID of the disk or that it was used by Windows. VMWare however never had that problem here. But I found a possible workaround that seems to work although I would be careful if your OS X and Windows share the same SSD/HDD: "A simple fix for vm ware fusion if it is saying insufficiant permissions is to open file on MAC, go to where the virtual machene is located, right click on the icon, click show package contents, and delete all the folders with the extension '.lck'. These are lock files that are stopping you from opening the virtual machene."

    macOS Mojave - It's out!

    Upgrade went pretty straightforward from the app store. Just had to update Clover and check the apfsloader/remove old apfs with my chipset. Because I skipped the beta this time, I wasn't aware that the desktop wallpaper changes to dark at night, even if you have the light theme activated. nice! Anyone else noticed?
  15. Have you shift + reloaded your browser(cache)? Attached with and without, browser FF but I use dont know if 132 and 134 do work.
