  1. What do you want to passthrough as seems different ways of doing this? Also this will only work on ESXi, no way of doing it on Workstation, Player or Fusion.


    I bleive editng the VMX file. similar to this, http://www.webbosworld.co.uk/blog/?p=471it's different in ESXi since itseems to emulat an UEFI or EFI so the smae vlaues don't work for a Mavericks VM.

    Correct. I need to know how to set the memmopry hole. i sucessfully passed througha GPU but, the side effect is if i give it more than 2gb it ca not boot or launch in anyway. i don't know the offset to paset in to the text/cfg/vmx file to allow more than 2gb of ram.


    Installing Mavericks using Clover (UEFI)

    You need a Mavericks installer for Mac, it can be downloaded from Appstore for free. Note that with Haswell CPUs you need a 10.9 installer or above. This guide is done under OS X, if you don’t own a Mac then you can always create a virtual machine.


    Create a Mavericks USB Installer


    Step 1: You need a 8GB USB stick, format it with Disk Utility with the following options:

    • Partition: 2 partitions
    • Partition 1: name it Clover, Format MS-DOS (FAT), size larger than 300MB
    • Partition 2: name it Untitled, Format Mac OS Extended ( Journaled ), size larger than 6.5GB
    • Options: Master Boot Record (MBR)
    • Hit Apply


    Step 2: Download this Clover.zip, unzip and copy the EFI folder to the root of the CLOVER partition. Use Hackintosh Vietnam Tool to create the suitable config.plist for your PC:

    - CPU: Select your CPU

    - Graphics: Select your graphics

    - SSDT: Generate

    Install to current HDD, then copy the generated config.plist on the desktop IN YOUR HDD to the folder EFI\Clover of the CLOVER partition.







    does the SSDT generate option use the settings you selected or does it make automatically based on the hardware the installer is running on.



    EDIT: yeah it just installed all of it to he hard drive of my virtual machine! these instruction either don't match the current Vietnam tool or are not clear. because you can't create the a bootable USB without another machine first. these are defiantly nota step instructions.

  4. Well, tampered a bit with the driver code, and this little change completely removes the described problem for me, without sacrifying anything output-latency related or system stability or so.


    So if the change goes in, anyone experiencing this should get the driver source, build+install the kext and check again.


    @Gringo Vermelho, thanks again for taking your time and your suggestions! :-)




    How does 1 build a kext with zero programming and compiling abilities? 


    Does any one know where to get the adapter to hook up the front panel connector to a normal cases/s front panel connector. 



    Edit: what's weird is, is that branch was merged in 2014 but, the pre compiled drive is still from 2014. i wonder if we could compile it and upload said kext for others to use.

  5. boy-oh-boy am i considering going to dark side with distros, this is my irst vanilla install. man it's nothing but headaches because it lacks so many features of distro, first and for most working on ONO mac GPT. turns vanilla mavericks will only install to an HDD with GPT table created by disk utility and idisk utility only that means no part tables created by G=parted will be accepted! This also means NO BOOT LOADER IFDUAL BOOTING!!!


    Due to the way chimera and clover work and the way disk utility creates part tables you will get an a grub boot (if dual booting with linux) or you will get an install error from clover. Then lastly due to being an AD1998B you may or may not have sound where the hack distro kexts usually work. in my case i do not, could just be mavericks thing.


    Now maybe just MAYBE i could be wrong and some folks could come in here and tell me how wrong i am how these issue can be corrected SHORT of coding my own kexts. (i can't program to save my life, maybe change a few device ids, which usually fails miserably) 


    I see a LOT of sects and separation in community when it comes to CERTAIN methods of installing vanilla and distros vs said community's method. May said (this) community has a BETTER way of doing things?

  6. In my signature there are 4 computers. First is UEFI based, thre others are BIOS based systems.

    All controlled by Clover.


    I see, i'm still kind of new to this stuff. can that config of your be adapter to chameleon? i am willing to try colover, i assume i need to find an installer? however then the question is where at  inthe config do i copy and past your code that you posted.


    I have the same card HD5570 with devID=0x68d9

    It is natively supported but you can't get right Model Name without injection.

    Also I had no DVD player and sllep/wake working without careful connector patch.

    My OEM is VTX. If you have the same card I may show you my config for Clover.

    Else you should read common instruction and made your own patch for this card.

    Clover config:




    what is clover? Do I add that to the Chameleon Wizard device properties?


    One time i tried to add device ID to the kext but, then error "blah blah kext not installed proeprly" started popping up al lthe time and i think the kext broke.

  8. got my old HD5570 back, it still only shows up as an H5000 but, 3d accel is on. I think i have things nailed down, i have reaming issue, about this mac crashes even if i set a manual SMBIOS as chameleon no matter the version can find my boards smbios.


    However newer version of chameleon fix that issue but, have hang for 5-15 minutes at SMBIOS not found at boot. I'm about to confirm that bu upgrading from chameleon rc4 to something newer. RC4 does not hang at boot but, cause aobut this mac to crash. Newer version fix aobut this mac but, hang at boot. EDIT: confirmed.



    EDIT: Or maybe back to sqaure 1, GTA III says it need direct x 8.1 or later. and titan attacks falt out does not launch. I wish there was a model number specific video card HCL for SL, even supported cards don't work based on vendor.
