  1. Hello.


    After several problems with High Sierra on APFS, I decided to do a clean install with HFS+ file system. Install went well, and I was even able to update to the latest 10.13.6 build with most recent Security Update. I then installed the latest compatible NVIDIA drivers, and I was able to boot with no problems. The next day, I powered up the system, and while it was loading, it suddenly shut down. I booted in verbose mode and was able to get this image. Not sure what it means, and I didn't find related terms in the forum. Hope someone can please help me figure it out.


    Thanks in advance.

  2. Thank you both very much.


    It was a real pain in the ass dealing with this issue, but I was able to finally resolve it after trying many different things. Long story short, I tired Allan's method, but unfortunately didn't work. I did reinstall all my kexts and that helped me boot to the OS again. However, that same day 10.11.6 came out, and I decided to upgrade since I already was struggling with my computer. The upgrade took me back to square 1, and I wasn't able too boot all the way to the OS. After some digging in the forums, I came across a post that suggested trashing the Nvidia kexts. I did that and problem resolved. 


    Not sure what exactly caused my problem, but I'm guessing it had something to do with the graphics kexts more than anything else.


    Thanks again for your help, guys.



  3. Hi again. 


    I tried to boot without patches as you said, trying different combinations in clover (removing the plus signs shown on the image below) but all I get is the booting progress bar that reaches (very slowly) to the end but nothing happens.





    What else could I try? 


    I've read RehabMan's guide to patching DSDT, but it mentions using MaciASL, which is only for OSX Lion and above, and as I mentioned before, I only have access to a Mac running Snow Leopard.


    Please let me know if there's anything else you can think I can try.



  4. Hi.

    Everything was working great on my 10.11.5 system. Today I was copying files between a sd card and a usb stick. All of the sudden, Finder stopped responding. I tried to re-launch it, but it didn't work. I tried to shut down the computer, but it was taking a very long time to do so. Since I was late for a meeting, I had to manually shut down the computer. After I came back from the meeting, I tried to start the computer, but I would get stuck on boot with the white Apple logo. Tried manually restarting, and here is where it gets weird: I pressed the restart button on the case and I booted directly into Windows (I have two drives, one for each OS). I went back to my BIOS to see why my booting options had changed, and I noticed my saved BIOS profiles were gone.

    Anyway, I tried bootflags -v and -x and this is what I get:


    I know you guys get this all the time, but I'm seriously in the middle of a project that I need to finish ASAP. Any help will be very appreciated.



  5. This is what I used as for bios settings

    BIOS Features

    Fast Boot - Enabled

    PS2 Devices Support - Disabled

    Windows 8/10 Features - Windows 8/10 WHQL

    CSM Support - Disabled

    Secure Boot - Disabled


    Under Peripherals:

    XHCI Hand-off - Enabled

    Super IO Configuration > Serial Port 1 - Disabled


    Under Chipset

    VT-d - Disabled

    IOAPIC 24-119 - Disabled


    This is the plist I used on my USB installer http://www.gamefront.com/files/25371458/config.plist.zip


    For Kext FakeSMC.kext

    RehabMan's USB Inject All


    After install I add the AppleIGB.kext to get the i211 running.  i219 is not working yet.



    vonmolk, can you please re-upload your plist file? The link is not working anymore.



  6. Hi

    Gigabyte Z170 HD3P has working ethernet with Mieze's kext

    i7 6700k is a beast.

    My advice.. no Haswell. Development is almost complete on Skylake, whats missing is usb3.1 ports and pure NVME, but usb 3.0 are working, so who needs them anyway.


    Thanks for your reply, samma7896. Do you know where I can find a guide I can follow step by step to build a new machine? If your configuration is a popular one around here and requires little hassle to make it work, I will provably buy the same hardware you have. But I kinda got my eyes on a Gigabyte board with support for Intel's Thunderbolt:




    Any thoughts are appreciated. 

  7. Hello.


    It's been about 3 or 4 years since I built my first, and so far only hackingtosh. I did so fallowing a guide written by good guy ^Andy^, witch came with hardware recommendations. I now feel it's time for me to upgrade to a faster system to keep up with heavier work loads. I'm strongly considering building a hackingtosh around the new i7-6700K Skylake processor, but I haven't come across guides for  this type of processor. I was wondering if any of you could recommend me a motherboard that's compatible and that won't become a hassle when trying to install OS X. Also, if there's a guide you know of, please let me know.


    Thanks in advance.

  8. very very old problem, install the kext NULLCPUPowermanegement.kext, then you need patch the AICPM and delete NULLCPUP


    Thanks a lot, iFire. That seem to have done the trick, with sleep working so far. I appreciate your and fantomas1 quick reply's.

  10. Hello Pimentel.


    The first time I booted with your DSDT everything worked great. I tested sleep and it took about 15 seconds to go to sleep, but it worked. I tested sleep again, and it took another 15 seconds to sleep, but it worked.


    I rebooted to test everything again, but this time mouse and keyboard don't work, so I can't login to Mavericks. I rebooted, and same problem: mouse and keyboard don't work. I tired different USB porst, but same problem.


    Any ideas?


    Thank you.

  11. Thanks, Pimentel.


    So, this is what I need to do, yes?


    1) Open terminal


    2) copy - paste on terminal:

    curl -o ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.github.com/Piker-Alpha/RevoBoot/clang/i386/libsaio/acpi/Tools/ssdtPRGen.sh
    chmod +x ssdtPRGen.sh

    3) Still in terminal, copy - paste:

    sudo ./ssdtPRGen.sh 95 3800

    4) Patch AICPUPM in terminal


    cd ~/Downloads/AICPMPatch
    perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement
    sudo perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement --patch
    sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

    5) Open org.chameleon... in TextEdit, and add:


    6) :)





  12. Hello


    You used tonymac's tools to make your post-installation, his tools confuse a installation, it install unecessary kexts and unnecessary configurations... i think only remove NullCPUP isn't enough... i think GPU doesn't work because of this.




    No. I only used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to install Mavericks. After I booted with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], I installed Chameleon bootloader from Insanelymac, then used chameleon wizard to create SMBios & org.chameleon...


    I did not use any Tonymac tools post-install.


    Can I still delete NullCPUP and then use Pike's script to create SSDT?



  13. Thanks, Pimentel.


    Sorry for my ignorance, I'm a little bit confused. Here are my questios:


    1) Can I follow your guide without having to reinstall Mavericks? Can I just delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, create SSDT and patch AICPUPM?


    2) If your answer to #1 is no, then does your method require dsdt.aml? Right now I don't have dsdt.aml. The only way my system booted without any problems is when I did not create dsdt.aml. I really don't know what dsdt.aml or SSDT do, but I've been reading that SSDT has something to do with dsdt.aml.


    3) How do I know what frequency or multiplier to use in sudo ./ssdtPRGen.sh xx xxxx?


    Also, I just noticed one thing in Youtube.com: When I try to play a video, the image looks damaged (see attached picture). When I right-click on the video, and select Adobe settings and I uncheck "Enable hardware acceleration" the image looks OK. Do you know why that is? Mavericks seems to support my Graphics card and my org.chameleon... has GE=No.


    Thanks again.
