  1. Okay, so operating system is on separate read only APFS volume. What does that mean for hackintosh? Will all kexts need to be injected? Or any changes to system volume will require a separate command line command?
  2. @chris1111 Is there anything I need to know about before I update my Optiplex 790, GT710, to Catalina?
  3. Cool, just let us know if you need any help, and I'm sure one of us will be available. See, about the time I make the slightest mistake in a post, Polyzargone starts to keep a close eye on the thread. Then Chris1111 will show up to defend me.
  4. I have a 790 and a 990, and am using UEFI booting in both. Have not had a 760 or 780 in almost 3 years now. But yes, if not set to AHCI in bios, you pretty much stuck at step 1, and probably have one of those "Duh" moments when you figure out what the problem was. We all get our share of those moments. Just your turn. Glad you got that figured out, and are into installer now.
  5. Yes, we are using Clover legacy boot settings for all these models. There are several methods to make USB installer, the one command line version on first post of this guide works as well as any. Chris1111's installer works fine for El Capitan There are other methods posted in other guides. Use any method you are comfortable with. After creating usb installer.... Install Clover with appropriate settings for legacy install... Install Clover in the ESPBootloader / Install boot0af in the MBRCloverEFI / Clover-EFI 64Bit SATADrivers64UEFI / EmuVariableUefi-64Drivers64UEFI / OsxAptioFixDrv-64Drivers64UEFI / PartitionDxe-64Install RC Scripts In Target Volumeoptional:Theme, free choiceInstall Clover Preference Pane After clover installation... Delete clover folder in EFI/EFI/Clover, and replace with correct clover folder for your Model. The Clover folder I have attached should be enough to get you going. After install, look at first page of post for sound. Best to go with AppleAlc and Lilu. Probably best to stay with Sierra or older until you get a working install so you don't need to rollback video kexts. CLOVER.zip
  6. Initial boot takes you to Clover boot menu, select boot install clover, that's as far as it goes? Then something's definitely wrong with the USB installer setup. After creating USB installer, then installing Clover, you are deleting EFI folder in EFI partition, then replacing with EFI folder from guide? Did you try El Capitan? We made a guide for El Capitan that goes into a little more detail, and Chris1111's USB Installer Creator program still works for creating USB installer for El Capitan. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308097-guide-el-capitan-1011x-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/?_fromLogin=1
  7. When that happens to me, I click on Choose Language, then just choose whatever language, click okay, go back to the install screen, and it will let you continue.
  8. I have Mojave on my 790. I had to change video cards from the HD5450 to a Gigabyte Geoforce 710. G710 works OOB Where is install hanging up, can you get through to installation screen?
  9. Which fan is making the noice? What bios are you using? It is not possible to manually control the fan speed, but I would expect you just have a noisy fan. I have an i7-Core CPU. HW Monitor shows that it runs at about 35* C. I don't hear the fan running. Not unless I put my ear next to the back of the case. I am using the stock fans. No issues. I use the computer several hrs a day for work, and a few hrs after work. I have had this computer for 3 years. No issues with CPU over-heating or fan noise. @chris1111 How are you changing the System Logo Tiff after the change to Mojave? I like yours. Gimme, gimme. I want, I want!
  10. The bios worked fine with Sierra, and with High Sierra. Wake from sleep with video. I have moved on to Mojave and now using Gagabyte 710, so cannot test config, but I looked at my old Sierra configs, and I had, Slide = 0, and Kext-Dev-Mode =1, both checked. Not sure if that matters. You could also try Darkwake = 1, and make sure you are using the correct DSDT, as there have been edits along the way. DSDT.aml.zip
  11. Works now! There were just 4 or 5 differences in config. Not sure which one made it work. I guess I could compare both configs again and do changes 1 at a time until I see which one did it. Thanks!
  12. No luck. HDMI works on my Windows partition, so its not the card. Can u upload your working clover folder, less your SMbios numbers?
  13. Well, I updated Lilu and AppleAlc.kext just after install. HDMIAudio.Kext is in Clover/Kexts/Others Edit: Did you not state a few posts back , that HDMI did not work with your Gigabyte 710 and Mojave? What changed?
