  1. Hey guys, I wanted to share my build with everyone who is thinking of upgrading to the newest Coffee Lake Generation and z390. Components Intel i7 9900k Processor Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wifi) Noctua NH-D15 EVGA SuperNova 1000w Power Supply G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Fractal Design Define C Black Silent Compact ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Samsung 970 1TB EVGA Geforce 1070 SC Notes The machine is being used mainly for video editing of Raw footage so I needed a powerful 8 threads processor and an Nvidia card for better compatibility with Adobe Premiere. I picked components that will be good to overclock the machine down the road. I recommend checking out DerBauer's video if you plan to run this beast on 5 Ghz. For installation I mainly followed Stork's Guide for the Z370 I'm using High Sierra 10.13.6 since I use an Nvidia Card. I partitioned the SSD for dual booting Windows and Mac. Here is the gist of it: (I had some trouble during various steps of installation mostly due to faulty configuration) - FIRST MAKE SURE YOU DISABLE SECURE BOOT. It's a little different than on Hero X but not too hard to figure out. You have to do this to be able to boot from USB - 1. Create High Sierra USB installer for [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (make sure APFS.efi gets installed. Note 19 on this post finally got me a working USB installer key) 2. Boot with -v and nv_disable=1 in Clover Boot Options 3. Create a 500GB parititon for High Sierra (APFS) 4. Create a 500GB Fat32 partition to use later with Windows 5. Install OSX 6. Boot into High Sierra with USB Clover (still nv_disable=1) 7. Follow Stork's guide to install [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] kext. 8. Update OS if you are not on 10.13.6 and install NVIDIA Web driver corresponding to your version of 10.13.6 9. You can find the kexts to get audio working over here 10. To get restart and shutdown working I used slide=0 and Emu 64 driver from clover. 11. Here is my EFI folder for anyone interested 12. To install Windows, make sure you use check GPT partition when creating the USB install media with Rufus. After that you can just launch the usb installer and install normally, reformatting the FAT32 drive we created earlier. 13. One last note: Parallels Bootcamp works with my Windows partition. Make sure you enable Intel Virtualization Technology in BIOS (Leave VT-d disabled!) Good Luck!

    Lenovo Z560 installation

    Hey guys, laptop working brilliantly with 10.8.2! System used: Lenovo IdeaPad Z560 M37AQGE W7HP64 15.6" 1366 x 768 Core i5 430M, 2x 2.26 GHz 6 GB RAM 320 GB NVIDIA GeForce G 310M WLAN Atheros AR5BXB6 As you can see on the provided screenshots the laptop was modified in two ways: 1. 6GB RAM instead of the 2GB that it came with. I simply bought 4 GB RAM and used the second RAM slot. 2. WLAN Atheros AR5BXB6 replacing the internal Wifi card (You need the provided IO80211Family.kext to make it work) Working (pretty much everything) - Serial ATA driver - Internal Camera - Bluetooth (using the Mighty Mouse) - Wifi - Sound (Plug switching working, Headphone/Speakers) - Network Card (Realtek) - Graphics Card - Sleep - Speedstepping (also for GPU) - Battery Display - USB 3.0 express card - HDMI and VGA out - SD card slot - DVD burner Not working - HDMI Audio (I boot to Win7 when I want to watch a film on TV) - Internal Microphone (can make it work by using VoodooHDA but automatic plug switching will be disabled) I put all files I used together in a package that you can download here: http://flashmirrors.com/files/oddtqw2rcyvbeux/z560-10.8.2.zip

    Asrock p5b-de sleep and shutdown

    i'd suggest you dont use a distro like iatkos! use the original lion install and replace ioatafamily. after boot install ioatafamily to the system and install chameleon, then replace the extra folder with the one above. this way you know exactly what got modified to make the system run. here is my preferred guide to get a perfect lion installation partition or usb stick: http://themacmob.com/how-to-create-a-bootable-hackintosh-ready-lion-usb-drive/

    Asrock p5b-de sleep and shutdown

    i dont think your dsdt is even picked up by chameleon because its not named dsdt.aml. you're also missing some extensions that are important for lion... or did you install everything in system/library/extensions ? did you try backuping your extra folder and replace it with mine?

    Asrock p5b-de sleep and shutdown

    i would start with updating to 10.7.4 then install the newest chameleon with chameleon wizard. did you install the provided ioatafamily.kext from the zip with kext utility? I attached my Extra folder, maybe it will help you! Good Luck! Are you using any IDE Drives or IDE DVD? Extra-p5b-de.zip

    Asrock p5b-de sleep and shutdown

    thanks for the package fedd! Just installed lion and putting your dsdt to work right now! much appreciated mate!! UPDATE: Computer is extremely stable now! Working great with Lion and is used everyday as a Final Cut / After Effects Production Suite! Shutdown works with fedd's DSDT, thanks again! I uploaded your package here in case your link goes down, I hope this is o.k. with you... Asrock P5B-de.zip

    Asrock p5b-de sleep and shutdown

    I'm in the same boat as you, except I'm still in 10.6.8 The ASrock p5b-de is working fine except for sleep and shutdown... it must be a DSDT issue... I' thinking about getting the DSDT again and ask Mald0n to modify it...

    Chameleon Wizard - Utility for Chameleon.

    hey mate, I love your tool and I use it regularly to keep chameleon updated! One Option that might be great for future releases is the debug=0x100 option. It gives you details in case your mac crashes what the cause of the issue is! Keep up the good work!

    Lenovo Z560 installation

    I have been working on some laptop issues over the weekend and wanted to know if somebody came up with a solution: 1. HDMI Audio - Apparently it should be easy to get HDMI Audio working with Voodoo but I only have Headphones and Mic in Sound Preferences. An alternative would be to use a patched AppleHDA but I assume this doesnt work for our chipset. In Win7 HDMI Audio works so there must be a way! 2. Hibernation - Apparently this is working for N One but even with his DSDT, kexts, boot.plist and smbios it's not working for me. If you want to try out if its working Go to terminal enter: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 In Security tab in System Preferences disable "Use secure virtual memory" Install http://deepsleep.free.fr/ For me it goes to sleep and its waking up but no USB devices are detected anymore after hibernation
