    ALC269 best approach?

    Hi @Allan, Running the RunMe file & stuck at generating system information. IOReg dump failed & kept repeating IOReg dump but in the end ALC269 generated html. It generated a big files. You want all of it under send me folder? Hi @Allan, I am attaching files generated by RunMe app. Send me.zip

    ALC269 best approach?

    Hi Alan, None of the layout ID works for me. I even injected layout ID 124 & 128. Any recommendation what I can try? In the past, my ALC269 works by replacing hacked AppleHDA + IOAudioFamily.kext with specific edited DSDT for it to work. It worked from Mountain Lion up to Sierra. It stops working in High Sierra. AppleALC + Lilu is a more kosher way but unfortunately it appears that mine maybe a rare exception. FYI, I elected boot verbose and I don;t remember seeing AppleALC kext loader. It showed Lilu kext loaded. Coulde that be an issue. I have Atheros Ethernet and Atheros E2200 did not work and I have to use the old Atheros L1C Ethernet kext. Putting in /Clover/kext/others. the Atheros could not inject. I had to put it into S/L/E. Can I put AppleALC into S/L/E or L/E? I also have problem with Asmedia 1024 USB3. Clover patch did not work. I came across someone recommending to remove AppleHPET kext? Is that safe to remove AppleHPET? Any suggestion that I can try would be highly appreciated. My rig is: Asus X53E Laptop CPU: Intel i5-2450M Graphics: Intel HD3000 Expand Memory to 8GB I attached the patched kexts with DSDT that worked from Maverick to Sierra.

  3. @shela, Does your script work in El Capitan 10.12.1? I got output error "could not resize sparse image"?
  4. @savageAUS, Follow wastez, NVDASTartupWeb.kext info.plist corrected. Repair permission + cache restarted. Unfortunately, graphic problem same as before. Any other method I can try. FYI, I also used Nvidia Webupdater way but same graphic problem remain.
  5. Hi Experts, Any chance I can get 10.12.1 Nvidia web driver here? I forgot to check this site first before upgrading to 10.12.1. The graphic is now painfully horrific.

    NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app

    @Micky1979 &/or @Fantomas1, (1) Will this work in macOS Sierra? (2) Will this update through patch for 10.12.1(16A2338B)? I forgot to check with Nvidia Web Driver for macOS Sierra site first before I update it to 10.12.1. Current workable web driver showed 10.12.0. update: It did not work on 10.12.1 (16B2338c).
  7. @Faun, thanks to your Nvidia web driver for PB1 as it works perfectly with my system. Any chance you will have Nvidia web driver for Public Beta 2 soon?
  8. @fantomas1, Thank you for your Webdriver for Sierra public beta. It worked. I have GeForce GTX 960 4GB OC and I am running macOS Sierra Public Beta. 3 days in a row, when I played you tube video through Safari, after 3-4 songs, both montior screens suddenly turned black, then the disk icons reappeared while screen remaied black. Then the system crashed (unresponsive). Had to restart with restart button. Then, last night, I installed Chrome browser and played the same you tube videos, i did not experience black screens, freezes or system crashes even after 10 songs, It appeared this may be a Safari browser issue. Anybody has similar experience like me?

    macOS Sierra USB boots to white screen

    I beg to be different sir. I did my macOS Sierra Public Beta createinstallmedia method. I use Slice FakeSMC & the latest Clove 3625 bootloader. By using CreatInstallMedia method, the installation is a 2 step process. The first is preparation of disk about 5-7 minutes, then it restarted, you must select USB installer again, make sure it boot all the way through and real installation begins will be about 16-18 minutes. After it is done, it restarted, still select USB installer but select boot from newly installed macOS Sierra. I also booted into white screen first then realized that it is a 2 step processes. In my case even after successfully installed the Sierra, I still booted to white screen. I decided to unplug SATA connection to El Capitan and Windows 10, that was when I successfully installed macOS Sierra. my Specs are: MB Asrock Z97 EXtreme6 CPU: Xeon E-1225 V3 MEM: XMP G. Skill 32 GB ( x 8GB) Graphic Card: Gefore GTX 960 4GB OC by Gigabyte

    El Capitan Skylake USB

    Hi Chris, I have to reinstall El Capitan because of very poor graphic performance. When I try it on MacPro 5.1 SMBIOS, it panic and never recover. When trying to I install El Capitan again, I was not able to reinstall at all as it panic. Any suggestion that can oovercome the panic issue would be highly appreciated.

    AMD Instaler

    @tle88, you are confusing this thread. Skylake is Intel 6th gen CPU and this is exclusively for AMD CPU. Anyways, this AMD installer will not work for Intel CPU. There is a separate bigger forum for Intel CPU. I don't have any AMD CPU at the moment but because of CPU price difference and what I need from a CPU, maybe AMD CPU is a better value oveall for me for my future use.

    Pandora's Box 2.0 Candidate 3 roll out

    Can I use Pandora to create installer for El Capitan as long as I use Pandora in 10.10 or down to 10.7, correct?
  13. @LoBlanc, Clover 3280 has SIP disabled by default. Try this, in your first boot, install all third party kexts and patched AppleHDA. Use the following URL to get Repair Permissions tool to repair disk permissions. Enable SIP and reboot. Good luck. El Capitan is not the same Mac OS X like what we are use to. Apple has quietly put in a big monkey wrench into the whole OS. Too far we know SIP implementation & also USB. There maybe some more. Try and let us know. That tool as the author explained is specifically design for El Capitan has Apple took out disk utility ( disk repair permissions out of El Capitan). Good luck! https://www.firewolf.science/2015/07/repairpermissions-v2-0-cli/

    El Capitan final won't install

    SIP & new USB implementations make El Capitan not friendly at all to hackintosh. I visited apple support site and found that some real Mac have problem of booting into El Capitan. Maybe GM version still got some serious bugs that Apple must fix. Therefore, do not give up just yet. We are still early in the game and give our experts sometime to look under the hood of El Capitan. Better guidance coming soon. I am just going to play the El Capitan in VMware for now and make USB installer after EL Capitan 3rd updates and check it out. Meantime, I had installed and successfully upgraded El Capitan Public Beta to 10.11.6 in my old legacy computer using Clover legacy install.. Then came GM, I downloaded and update it, it does not update. It can only updated through USB installer. I intentionally did not do clean install because I want to see how it updated itself.

    El Capitan final won't install

    @ Derek12, I have to commend you for your pioneering spirit and give me the encouragement to jump into the pool. I will try in the next couple of days to install El Capitan using Clover UEFI for UEFI computer and Chameleon Enoch for in my legacy computer. Let's see what my errors are in comparison with yours. With implementation of SIP and all other changes in EL Capitan, Apple has finally started undeclared war against hackintosh. If I try, I will unplugged everything just like real Mac only one system. It's not a scientific suggestion but just a hunch or hope that it may just work.

    Chameleon OS X El Capitan

    I never dual boot Windows and OS X in the same hard drive. I am lucky that I did not have a MB that requires me to partition MBR. I have been hackintosh for 7 years and always partition my HD drive for OS X in GPT. I cannot help you personally. Following URL is a good guide. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298027-guide-aio-guides-for-hackintosh/ I learned a lot from it and it helps me understand why Mac OS X is a challenge for hackintosh. Lucky that at Insanely Mac, we have people like Chris1111, Pokenguyen, Rehabman and many genius like them to help us here. Please post your PC specs so that other people with similar system can help you better. I have to speculate you have specific Gigabyte Z77 MB that requires MBR partition? Chris 1111 will come out with or may already have Clover Installer for El Capitan, give it a shot. Get right into it and learn Clover. Google Clover wiki and read the following for basic understanding of Clover. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/282787-clover-v2-instructions/ Good luck!

    Chameleon OS X El Capitan

    I was a chameleon guy until5 months ago when I was forced into using Clover boot loader because of Haswell CPU (Xeon E3-1225V3) which has early reboot I was not able to install Yosemite using Chameleon. Clover was easy in installing Yosemite. In EL Capitan, please read the following guide. OS X 10.11 El Capitan - HackintoshOSX.com Mac OS X EL Capitan implemented a lot of changes that Apple claimed to strengthened the OS system security by implementing Sip (System Protection Integrity). Therefore, installing 3rd party kext or patching kext now is not routine like before. I think SIP is to make life difficult for mackintosh people like us. The right thing is to disable SIP, install 3rd party kexts or patching kext, repair permission rebuild cache reboot and rearm SIP. I am waiting for the expert here to guide us to do that. The URL I provided talk about it but I am sure I can follow. I am waiting. I already downloaded El Capitan GM today. Good luck and good hack. Clover is great boot loader. Put your rig system down as your signature so that other people can help you better knowing your PC specs.

    Would unlocker 206 work with VMware Workstation 12?
  19. Phil511


    @PhaneV, Thanks for your good suggestion. Unlocker worked but I run into modules need recompile issue and VM ware won't startup. Found a patch on the internet but have not tried it yet because too late last night for me to try. Question, should I install VMware first, unlock & patch kernel for reconpile kernel or install VMWare, patch Kernel & unlock? My instinct is to do the former? Any suggestion?

  21. @Chies1111, Where is the download for Clover bootloader 3261? The latest at SourceForge showed 3259.
  22. I would appreciate if someone can help me how to boot back into El Capitan Public Beta 5 after I successfully updated it from Public Beta. I rebooted it back successfully after the update. While installing patched AppleHDA for Realtek 889, my computer froze. No circulating beach ball, I can move the arrow but it did not function in short El Capitan Public Beta 5 crushed. I was to forced to conduct hard re-start and unable to boot back into Public Beta 5 since. I used Chris1111 Clover EL Capitan installer in a legacy install onto my old desktop. MB: Asus P6X58D-E Video Card: EVGA GTX 460 Memory: DDR3 1600 6 GB ( 3 x 2GB) CPU: i7 960 Onboard Audio: Realtek ALC889 Below are 2 screen shots: Frist screen shot was where it stuck and after 20 minutes the second screen shots show more messages.
