    Opening App Store Freezes entire system

    I just wanted to 2nd this issue. As soon as the App Store is opened, screen will freeze, although not the entire system. There’s still hdd traffic going in for some time. Fresh plain install on a z68 system and i7-3770 which should be well supported. I’m trying to use iGPU HD4000. When using dGPU, no freeze occurs. So it’s likely an issue with the graphics part. Using clover 5098 and virtualsmc, Lilu, weg, ... iMac13,2 (also tried 13,1 or macmini6,2) With and without ssdt.aml Since some seem to use fakesmc and still have the same issue, I would not consider this alone to be the root cause. (Vs Virtualsmc) I wonder if those, who are using a dGPU have their iGPU active or completely switched off in bios? Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk

    Update to 10.15.1 fails under OpenCore 0.52

    What I still don't get is why my system actually did shutdown and a reboot or just froze.... I wonder if this comes down tot he same issue or slightly different?

When the first reboot was done, loading was proceeding but just before it would show the text "calculating remaining time", the system would just shutdown and switch off. Tried a couple of time, but no good. Then I switched back to Clover, booted and the update proceeded like normal, i.e. showed the "remaining time". When the next reboot took place, I actually forgot to choose the usb (via F12) and the system booted again via OpenCore. It ended up in a black screen, although there seemed to be some kind of activity from time time (hdd led flashing) after a while I switched off power and rebooted via clover again. This time the updated proceeded (again) and finally I was able to login (with all Siri privacy questions, etc). I rebooted again with OpenCore and all went smoothly this time, so now after all the update went through, I can use OpenCore as before (no changes made). Did anyone come across this or have an idea where to start debugging? Naturally, now that the update went through, I cannot easily turn back to 10.15. to re-test... :-(

    Fusion Drive

    Hi, old post so I hope it’s still alive. For my rig, I use the internal sata 3 and 2 ports, as well as an extra sata 3 card, which is natively supported by MacOS. I’m also having a fusion drive. Over time, I have been switching the disks between all ports without seeing any issues. I even spread the fusion drive with one disk on the internal and one on the external port and still no problems. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk
  5. Version 1.0.0


    RTL8811AU USB WiFi ac dongle drivers packed, including 10.4 to 10.12. Confirmed to work under Mojave 10.14.5.

    strange issue

    I have the same issue with z68, i7-3770 / HD4000 / NVIDIA Titan (natively supported). Just reboots after.... a while... Not a solution for you, but it seems not to limited to your board/setup, only. Gesendet von iPad mit Tapatalk

    Postinstall advice for 10.14.4 on Ga-Z68AP-D3

    Today, I managed once again to split my fusion drive for unknown reason. So, over night I’ll need to play back my 900GB backup, before I can go back to more „adventurous“ attempts. [emoji16] When booting from usb installer, using iGFX and -v, I believe to have seen the last lines of unknown CPU and unknown PCH (?)... Not sure if this makes sense, though. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk
  8. EFI folder contains Hackintosher.txt, showing "Installer version: v2.4k r4586 EFI bootloader". If that is the current clover release installed, the first thing to do would be to update to the most current one (today r4920). Just as a starter....

    Tried to install, but appears to work not. Even tried to extract with Pacifist, but the kext will not even copy. Strange... Can you post the kext? edit: sorry... something was wrong with my system. worked after a restart. Well, to me it doesn't seem to do the trick. The kext installs and it will recognize a USB3 device (64GB Intenso stick in this case). Interestingly, system report under USB section will not give the usual information on the inserted stick anymore with this kext. Putting in a USB2 device will not work at all, same as using stock drivers. No advantage using the NEC driver.

    You need to update your clover to the most present one (today it's r4920). To work with an outdated clover versions is not helpful at all. As far as proper power management is concerned, you will have noticed that your CPU does only either full speed or idle, but nothing "in between". The SSDT automator script is a nice piece of cake and will create an ssd.aml file for you, which you can place in your CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder. You must also de-select the generation of the p- and c-states in the config: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>SSDT</key> <dict> <key>Generate</key> <dict> <key>CStates</key> <false/> <key>PStates</key> <false/> </dict> </dict> </dict> I do have the same board as you do, but with the i7-3770, not the unlocked "k". So, I'm naturally excited to follow your thread here, although I'm using an Nvidia TitanX (Kepler), which is natively supported. So can't prove anything on AMD GPU's. In any case, what I can confirm is that headless activation of the iGPU (which I have done, too) does definitely make the boot slower. This is to be expected and a small price you need to pay for airplay mirroring support. What I see from your screen shot is an error report regarding iTunes playback. I had the same issue after updating to 10.14.4 with an "outdated" clover version. Movies would just result in a black screen and not play all. After I updated clover to 4920, everything works again! Now for the USB3 support: This is exciting for me, because I do use stock drivers only, plus USBInjectAll.kext. Before using this kext, only one USB2 port from the front panel worked. Now all ports work fine. USB3 ports work, too, but handoff for USB2 devices in the USB3 port does not seems to work at all. This is not a big issue for me now, but would be the ultimate cherry on the pie to get this running as well. Therefore, I should be trying your NEC kext and see what it does for me.

But it works for me to 99,9%, so I guess I did not mess it all completely. Of course, I'm always open for improvement suggestions!

    APFS fusion drive crashed / split

    Thanks xtraa for your feedback and glad to see someone replying who's living quite near to my place, too Indeed, I have come across this and can confirm that it creates a new fusion drive (automatically), but does not merge back in any way that it could preserve any "old" data. The bottom line is: I had to use my time machine backup after I did the resetFusion command with diskutil, it does delete all content on both hdd's. By the way: resetFusion does work only when there are exact 2 drives, i.e. one ssd and one spinning drive, present. So you need to deactivate other hdd's first in BIOS or resetFusion will quit. It also appears that the fusion drive split happened just again yesterday. I'm not so keen on testing this any further for obvious reasons, but I think it breaks when the boot process (last stage before login) hangs for some reason. In this particular case, I had changed my CPU and graphics settings and switched from external GPU to internal HD4000 (for testing). Boot froze at let's say 90% (no -v) and I had to make a cold restart after all. With this, fusion drive was gone (again). Lesson learned To me it seems that the fusion drive is quite vulnerable when it comes to cold restarts during boot process. Better to avoid this during testing conditions and use a single drive installation instead.
  12. Folks, I‘m afraid I need your support, please. I had successfully finished a clean install of Mojave with fusion drive and after this I retrieved my personal data back from my time machine backup. So far, so good. Today, however, within just some usual work, my machine completly freezed. Something which I had never really had in the past. Pushed reset button, but now - holy f... - my fusion drives appears split as two separate apfs drives. Since I haven‘t made a new time machine backup yet, I can still easily go back to high Sierra, but actually this is a scary incident and I‘m wondering if anyone else did have such a crash before, too? Is there any non-destructive way to get the fusion drive back „fused“ or do I have to re-create it and make a new clean install? (Which would just costs me another 6 hours or so, since my backup is nearly 1 TB in size.... Any advise is highly appreciated!

    Updating BIOS to UEFI on z68ap-d3 (rev. 1)

    Frankly speaking, I do not know what to say. I have not come across such problems. Don't really dare to ask, but are you sure you have a rev.1 board? Except from that, I've no clue what to do. As I said, I have sold the rig a while ago, so I have no chance to test anything myself. sorry.

    Updating BIOS to UEFI on z68ap-d3 (rev. 1)

    It’s long time ago, I barely remember. But I don’t think I ever used any extra tools.
