    Tread very carefully as windows can over write the boot files or worst case scenario cause corruption. In an ideal situation is to isolate the disk you're not installing to, but not so easy in your case as you pointed out.

    I don't know how you install Windows, start the Windows PE environment, use winntsetup, load the iso file, choose the boot partition, choose the installation target partition, everything is up to you to decide, will never break other systems, very simple thing!

    I know this thread is about the boot picker but since it covers multi booting, I would like to ask some help.


    I have a working OC 0.5.8 hack and it works great. I would like to add a second SSD for Windows 10 specifically. What would be the recommended way of installing? I cannot unplug my macOS NVMe SSD because it is installed at the back of the motherboard. I would need to remove all components to do that.


    Should I just install Windows 10 directly to my second SSD? Would it not affect the EFI of the macOS drive?



    Think of the second SSD as a separate hard drive and install your WINDOWS in the state of one. OC will automatically recognize it!

    Hi I am new to hackintosh and my first post here.

    I have 3 OS - windows, mac and pop!os booting from ndkbootpicker.

    Can anyone tell me how can I change the name of OS and also the icon for OS.

    I know that I have to write full path of OS EFI in config.plist under MISC/Entries/ like PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x1)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/NVMe(0x1,11-22-33-44-55-66-77-88)/HD(1,GPT,00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000,0x800,0x64000)/\EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI.

    How do I find the path for my OS EFI in different partitions and how to change the icon in EFI bootpicker.

    Any help or reference to guide will be really helpful.



    For the NDK Fork, press F9 on the GUI interface to get the path information for each bootable system, which will be saved in the current EFI partition

    remember that the kext compiled with the latest sdks will be usabe only on mojave+

    I want to know the driver compiled with the latest SDK, which cannot be loaded in my majove system. Instead, it can be loaded correctly with the driver compiled by you!

    Why are you using 10.7 so old system, that you should use newer systems to debug and update your mod drivers code!

    I don't even know if the os has settings for your setup to be honest, maybe it could be achieved using some custom settings.


    Honestly i don't have that mutch experience with those things and it's not related to the driver, so i think that this is something to investigate separately, so i reccomend you to try to open a new discussion or ask some other apple forums, maybe someone already figured this out and can help you.

    Ok, thank you for your driver, but the driver I compiled in the environment of xcode11.3.1 still cannot be loaded, I don't know how to solve it, in the case of no xcode8, can we use the old SDK to solve this problem?
    In addition, there seems to be a problem with your source code packaging script, unable to package the complete PKG installation package, please check to fix!

    For the midi configuration app use the button you see in the picture, which is used to access output setup, then configure the card for 5.1 or 7.1, after that you have to play back something which outputs 7.1 or 5.1, to use the 7.1 or the 5.1, because your normal audio will be played back on only 2 speackers, for exaple you will hear audio on all the speackers by playing a dvd, again that's a limitation of the os, not a limitation of the driver.

    Yes, I have tested it, and I can choose 5.1 or 7.1, let the other jack sound, but it seems to lack a 2.1 mode, I use 2.1 stereo, there is a bass stereo and two speakers!

    I have added your card to the list, and fixed some compiler stuff, apparently you have some revision of the cards with a different subsystem id than the listed one, and you need xcode xcode 8 if you want the driver to be compatible with sierra or earlyer versions, apparently this is a problem with the macos sdk, but i will upload here a precompiled binary when i can.

    I won't be using the early system! So what version of XCODE do I need to compile to get binaries that work?

    For the output you need to use the midi configuration system app to configure the 7.1 or 5.1 setup and the you need to playback a some sound source whose supports 5.1 or 7.1, thatàs a limitation of the os and not a limitation of the driver, the driver just gives all the output channels of the card to the.

    How to set 5.1 or 7.1 mode in MIDI configuration, I see that there are already 8 channels by default, but only one output hole can be used!

    Is there a fully functional KX control panel program available under MACOS similar to WINDOWS?KX AC97 is too simple!

    1) it's a known bug which doesn't affect functionality, the driver will still work fine, it only appeared on sierra in my testing (for example on mountain lion it didn't show up), so it's not a deal braker. it's just about something not being quite right with the way the system apis handle the sound card name or some driver bug on specific os versions, it needs be investigated deeply.


    Although it does not affect the use, it is not very beautiful.

    2) what sound card do you have? if it isn't recognized with a proper name but it has that generic kx audio driver name, it means that it's not listed in the supported cards list in the frname file, if you whould like to contribute i can try to add proper support for your sound card, or at least to get a proper name to show up, we need to discuss this via private messages.

    The model of my sound card is:

    Creative Audigy2/Audigy4 Audio



    Device ID:VEN_1102&DEV_0008&SUBSYS_10231102&REV_00


    I used xcode11.3.1 to compile your updated github code today, the driver obtained did not load successfully, but with the binary file you published can load normally, I do not know is the compilation problem or your code has a problem!

    How to set output jack in MACOS, currently only one output can work, but in WINDOWS multiple output jack can work!

    the github repo has been updated with the latest source code, a release will follow in about a couple of days, since i need to prepare a good description for it, but you find a universal 32+64bit binary of the kext (for mac os x 10.6+) and the matching floatlib attached to this post.


    The new driver has been tested, but it seems that the identified model is not normal. After listening to the music for about 5 minutes, the system crashed but did not restart!

    I compiled an hybrid 32 and 64 bits executable which works as expected on catalina and mountain lion on a 64 bit machine, if you are running a 32 bit machine or a 32 bit installation of mac os x and you want to test the driver pm me

    my system is mojave and catalina,please send to me a copy for test,my email:tyq@qq.com,thx!

    only this word -flto caused  windows to boot and disappear
    i removed this word -flto from OpenCorePkg.dsc and compiled worked
    i solved my problem removing this word -flto
    windows icon appearing and booting worked fine like before
    close this conversation
    mark solved

    Is this parameter related to displaying Windows startup items?

    Just personal interest, I prefer the official Opencore GUI boot resource, is there any way/ any plan to migrate the official theme into OC-forked?


    only replace icon resources files to ndk forks!

    My machine is a HP Elitedesk 800 G3 35w mini desktop, the battery is fine, this error only happens when I reboot from the hackintosh. If I boot from windows or linux, it won't happen.


    HP laptops need an RTC patch to avoid this
