    chris1111 reacted to mnfesq in Some questions about Hackintosh   
    I am responding because I liked your original post and your willingness to try the more difficult procedure in order to create a more genuine vanilla installation.  Does the computer you are working with boot up?  Does it currently have an operating system?  If not, (and it's no big deal really), you will likely need to create your initial system files on a USB flash drive.  The flash drive will need to have 2 partitions: an EFI partition formatted in FAT32 and a partition for your macOS installer, which will be formatted in HFS+.
     
    In your EFI partition, you will need to install a boot loader.  I am familiar only with Clover although OpenCore seems to be just as functional and is preferred by many on this forum.  Installing Clover is easy.  Configuring it to your system much less so.  At a minimum, you need to add custom kexts (drivers) to make macOS work.  The two options are FakeSMC or VirtualSMC.  You absolutely need one of these, but never both or macOS will never boot.  You will likely need the Lilu.kext, Whatevergreen.kext and USBInjectAll.kext.  You will need a custom kext for your network card. Many use the RealtekRTL8111.kext successfully.
     
    I can't help you with your video card but there are threads on this forum that discuss what is needed to make Nvidia graphics work with macOS.  You will need custom drivers and/or patches for this.  I really can't say.
     
    There are custom kexts for wifi, bluetooth and audio as well. You will need to see what works with your system.
     
    Once you have your Clover or OpenCore boot loader configured, you should be able to boot to the boot loader start page.  
     
    For your other partition, you need to acquire a macOS installer.  The macOS operating system is free but one typically needs a Mac computer to access the Apple App Store.  You will find, if you search, direct links that will allow you to download the macOS installer from a Windows computer. You might want to check the downloads section of the diskmakerx website. BTW, if you have access to a Mac, the diskmakerx app is a good way to build your flash drive installer.
     
    This installer needs to be placed in your main partition on your USB Flash Drive.  As for the formatting of that partition, I'm not really sure how you can format it in HFS+ without a Mac but I suspect you can find a formatting tool such as Acronis Disk Director that will give you the capability to format for Mac using a PC.  
     
    If you have done everything necessary, you should have the option to install macOS on your boot loader start page.  After you install macOS and can get it to boot up from the flash drive, you will need to copy your EFI folder on the flash drive to the drive on which you have installed macOS.
     
    This is not intended as a tutorial.  Rather, it is a conceptual roadmap for the process since you seem to understand enough about computers to look at the big picture before delving into the details.  MaLd0n has some great tutorials for installing macOS on many different types of systems.  He is a valuable resource on this forum.
     
    One last thing, building a Hackintosh is and should be first and foremost an educational experience.  Those who are doing so to avoid the expense of purchasing a Mac will find that they will put way more time into the process than it's worth from a purely economic perspective.  There is so much to learn and to experiment with for those who enjoy the process.  Good luck.

    The methods hakintool or @chris111 do work somehow as it gets the usb 3.0 speeds for the ports, it's just it does not register as USB 3.0 in System Profiler, & does not allow booting from the USB 3.0 ports.
    Yosemite with Enoch Chameleon is the last & best for fully working Hackintosh on Asus P8H77-M LE.
    It will be interesting to get Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra to boot using Clover, but it has to be an older Clover version, as the newer Clover ones 5000+'s only work for High Sierra & Mojave.

    It was special improvement in CloverEFI (file boot6 or boot7) for external driver will be winner.
    It means that if boot6 was compiled with VBosHFS.efi and the folder drivers/BIOS contains HFSPlus.efi then the last will be winner. And vice versa.

    Success! Well. Got it to work with a different KEXT.
     
    AppleIntelIi210Ethernet.kext.  This the original "10.9" kext, I modified the hardware ID:
     
    key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
                <string>0x15218086</string>
     
    Then I just renamed the file with "i350". Place it in your clover "other" Kexts. Make sure you don't have any other. "intelmausi, apple IGB, smalltree_xxxxx, remove them all from all the extension locations, etc. etc.   Reboot and you're done. Catalina here we go!
     
    FYI Only for  0x15218086.  I have not tested any other onboard nics.
     
    Good luck!

    Hi guys,
     
    Is there a 5100 pkg release?
     
    Cause, Clover Updater seems to think so. And also, the Releases page on Github does have this build listed as available.
     

     
    However, clicking the Update button, the user gets redirected to a Page Not Found: https://github.com/CloverHackyColor/CloverBootloader/releases/download/5100/Clover_v2.5k_r5100.pkg
     
    I'm guessing probably because the link to the file is actually this: https://github.com/CloverHackyColor/CloverBootloader/releases/download/5100/CloverV2-5100.zip ?
     
    Probably just a typo.
     
    Also, I'm giving the app a try. Looks very promising so far. Well done, Vector!
     
    Update: Nevermind, that's not the installer. So...I guess we don't have a pkg version anymore. That's why Page Not Found. So, what about people who used that version? What would be the recommended course of action? Uninstall the pkg version and install the app version? Do we have an uninstaller?
     
    Aside from removing the Clover Updater PrefPane is there anything else that's not needed anymore with the app version and can be cleared?

    Instructions mostly outdated so ask at the forum what you have a question.
    boot0af is recommended for actual configuration when you have GPT disk with partitions:
    disk0s1  - EFI
    disk0s2 - system, and more
    So legacy boot will follow this algorithm:
    1. BIOS will call HDD, read zero sector where boot0af installed.
    2. boot0af will transfer execution to first sector in EFI partition where boot1f32 installed.
    3. boot1f32 will load boot file (usually the copy of boot6) which is the legacy Clover containing EFI framework (so called CloverEFI).
    4. CloverEFI will call CloverX64.efi which is GUI.
     
    boot0ss is for old MBR formatted HDD. This is separate story.

    I think we should never delete any nvram.plist.
    Clover checks modification date and use the most recent file.
