  1. What is the error? Can you send a screen shot of the error you have? The only essential BIOS setting is: OC -> CPU features -> CFG lock -> disabled Without this, boot freezes while loading the kernel (no screen output after clover) I also like to disable CSM: Boot -> Boot mode select -> UEFI because I had issues when CSM is enabled.
  2. Update the CPU to i9-9940X. From 8 core to 14-core :-) Also overclock to 4.5GHz at 1.185V. prime95 seems stable (ran the tortura test 1 and 2), max temps at 95C using the Noctua NH15D. No changes to config.plist.
  3. Update: Running 10.15.4. UEFI updated to 1D0. I could not use anything more recent than that (1E0, 1F0, 1G0), the system would not boot into macOS. It freezes at the "+++++" line. Changed a few KEXTs: TSCAdjustReset.kext instead of VoodooTSCSync.kext. The machine would restart after sleeping under 10.15, this fixed it. Needs to be compiled. VirtualSMC.kext instead of FakeSMC.kext, with the extras SMCProcessor.kext and SMCSuperIO.kext.

    Hi everyone. This is my latest update in getting my X299 system to work with Clover. * With Clover 4972, I needed a combination of OsxAptioFixDrv and Test2 to boot. * With Clover 5043, I need Test2-2016. Test2 and Test2-2016 can be found here: https://nickwoodhams.com/x99-hackintosh-solving-osxaptiofixdrv-allocaterelocblock-can-not-allocate-relocation-block/ Another difference is that with Clover 5043 I need to boot from EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi. If I boot from EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi (default), I get a KP while booting -- I think it is related with the AMD Radeon drivers, but I am not sure. Anyway, I just wanted to share what is working for me with Clover 5043: OsxAptioFixDrv and Test2-2016 Good luck.

    Catalina - Install Success

    Thanks for reporting. I also tried that version on my iMacPro hack, but unfortunately it says that the installer is not complete. This happens in both cases: if I run the installer directly from the system with 10.14.5 or if I create the install USB. In the latter, the installer boots, I can choose the language, but when I get to the install part, I get that message. I suspect we need a specific installer for the iMacPro, like previous versions of 10.14. Do you know of any specific release for the iMacPro? Thanks.
  6. Hi. If you can boot using a backup SSD, then try installing Clover again from its latest version. If it still does not work, pehaps the M2 is faulty?
  7. First, make sure that the UEFI sees all the drives. Boot into the UEFI and make a picture of the screen with all the drives detected and send it here. This way, we can see if the connection (AHCI, SATA, IDE) is what should be. If that is ok, open de terminal and do sudo diskutil list (press enter and type in your password) and copy&paste the result here. This also can help to show if the drives are there but not being mounted.
  8. Yep, not sure as well. Did you follow my settings in config.plist? Do you have VoodooTSC?
  9. Hi zambostraut. I was already with iMacPro1,1 before the update, so it was just a matter of using the AppStore to update. To move from iMac18,3 tp iMacPro1,1, I had to follow the guid here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/331658-how-to-build-your-own-imac-pro-successful-buildextended-guide/ Section D, specially section D5.
  10. I installed it without any problem. The NVIDIA driver still has a lower performance than with iMac18,3 SMBIOS. I lost about 33% in performance. But this was already happening with the previous macOS/NVIDIA version. There is a minor improvement. I had the "freeze" bug with graphics acceleration. For example, the 3D animation here: http://madebyevan.com/webgl-water/ used to freeze for a moment every few seconds. This happened both in Safaria and Chrome. Now, with the new updated, it runs smoothly on both browsers. You can also test this with the Finder: you open two Finder windows, and try to resize or move the window in the background. Before this update, it would stutter a bit. Now, it runs smoothly.
  11. Send a picture of the lines to be sure, but I suspect it is related to the OsxAptioFix drivers. Try all the different possibilities: * OsxAptioFixDrv * OsxAptioFix2Drv * OsxAptioFix3Drv * AptioMemoryFix And remember to fully shutdown the machine between reboots.
  12. I don't have the experience of powerful CPUs like KGP has. I only have the 8-core 7820X. However, I understand that the Noctua NH-D15 is one of the best air coolers on the market and is compatible with the 2066 platform. Here is a compatibility list: https://noctua.at/en/products/cpu-cooler-retail/tdpguide I use it with my processor and it works fine, even with a minor overclocking. Others have tested it and claim that its cooling capabilities is similar to the Corsair 115i. As long as you don't want to OC, I think it is worth trying. But note that it is quite big. Make sure you have a case that is high enough, and that you have clearance around your motherboard for it. In my case, if I place my video card on the first PCI slot, it almost touches the cooler. Good luck!
  13. Dear all: I'd like to report a partial success in using this on a real mac. I have a 2014 MBP with a replaced LCD screen. Unfortunately I bought a used screen with an incorrect EDID, so that macOS was not recognising it properly. The resolutions available in the Monitor System Preferences were wrong: 1600x1000 1024x640 1280x800 In addition, the screen brightness control was not working, the brightness was always max. With this program, I was able to partially "convince" macOS that the screen is valid. I now have the usual resolutions of 1680x1050 1440x900 1024x640 with the added bonus that aliasing is much better than before. Unfortunately, the brightness control is still not working. I am using "Shades" for that, but I think it does not really dim the screen, just adds a darker tint to it. So battery usage is still as if the screen is fully on. Anyway, it is already a great improvement. Big thanks to the developers for creating this and making it available.
  14. Hi Nico: Your config.plist is a mess. You have lots of patches active. You also have a DSDT and too many kexts. You also have kexts in 10.13 and in Other. This is too many variables to debug. Check my guide in the first post: * Your clover drivers are very few. * You have too much stuff in your config.plist * You have to many kexts in Other. And remove all kexts from 10.13 * You have a dsdt patch * We don't know your specs. Is your VoodooTSCS correct? 6 cores? I suggest you remove config.plist and dsdt, and install Clover again. And follow my guide.
  15. Hi niconico. What is the BIOS version you have? The latest for the MSI SLI Plus is 170. You should install that one. I find it strange that you get that error with OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi + Test2.efi, because that always works for me. So start by flashing or reflashing the latest BIOS. Also, remove "slide=0", it should be unnecessary, since that is the default anyway. What is the Clover version you are using? Your config.plist has lots of stuff. To start, for installation, you need very little, check my first post. Your config-no.plist has an invalid SMBIOS (iMac). I got good success with iMac18,3. Hi fabiosum: Thanks for the suggestion of using nvidiaweb. But it is selected in my config.plist: <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>Detect</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict>
