  1. Realtek ALC889 AppleHDA Audio

  2. OSInstall.mpkg not found

    I’m on a hack, the sequence of posts didn’t help me. But I do intend to wait a couple of months at least after my recent experience trying to upgrade. Cheers!
  3. OSInstall.mpkg not found

    Plagued by this error, I reverted back to 10.12.6. Will wait a few months until the installation process becomes more straightforward - it always does. Yeah, I'm rusty - but High Sierra is perhaps the most difficult upgrade since Yosemite IMO.
  4. Sorry for hijacking the topic, but I’m stuck in the same situation for days now. Updating the SMBIOS didn’t solve the issue. Installing from an USB thumbdrive (made with createimstallmdedia). Latest Clover et all. Never had such a difficult installation before with an Intel system! What more can I do? Thank you in advance. P.S.: my sig is almost updated, but I’m using iMac 14,2 (using the updated SMBIOS for it) P.P.S.: deleted the nvram plist file inside EFI P.P.P.S.: it’s a clean install to a SSD! P.P.P.P.S.: legacy Clover EFI, I don’t like UEFI boot at all.
  5. Have someone looked inside the new sources for anything AMD?
  6. macOS Sierra 10.12.4 is out ...

    News about APFS?
  7. Is APFS finally there?
  8. No, Maldon! Currently, Ryzen beats the Intel quad core i7s in everything but games. It evenly matches with Intel's best hexa and higher core CPUs that cost twice as much. MacOS is not a gaming platform, is a content creation platform, so gaming performance has little if any importance. Can someone reasonably think Apple will lose the oportunity to keep or even increase performance while cutting costs at the same time? A MacPro refresh is long overdue. AMD new multicore CPUs are finaly competitive. Apple already uses AMD GPUs in the Mac, so there's already a business relationship going on. Let's wait and see what the future brings!
  9. No, Shane, the current vanilla kernel cannot boot on Ryzen. I meant future point releases, or even 10.13, being able to boot vanilla because there are rumors Apple could ship MacPros and even MacBookPros with AMD silicon.
  10. I have a gut feeling that soon Ryzen users won't need modified kernels to boot macOS.
  11. They are being faster than in old times, when they could take months to release current source. What changed?
  12. My G5 Hackintosh

  13. I deleted the DSDT and managed to get to the Desktop by selecting "inject Intel". This doesn't solve my problem, since I need HDMI audio, but at least I could run DCPI Manager. Unfortunately, it detected the MEI chip just fine. I don't know what more to do, but thank you for the support. I'll upload my DSDT and the screenshot of the DCPI manager chipset list, and the config.plist I'm using (without the SMBIOS and MBL values, but it's set to iMac 13,1, and I already tried Mac mini as well). Thank you very much indeed! Archive.zip
  14. Posted originally in the DSDT section, but perhaps it fits better here: The title pretty much sums it, but here it goes: I upgraded an otherwise fully working hackintosh from Yosemite to Sierra. Now I'm stuck, already for two days. It will boot only in Safe Mode, or if I removed my DSDT from the appropriate Clover folder (and in this case I need to inject the HD4000 with Clover's Graphics Injector). What happens is the boot goes fine until the last stage, crash-rebooting at the exact instant the Desktop should appear. If I use verbose, I see a quite messy screen before the sudden reboot. No panic message. If I set Clover to prevent reboot on kernel panics, the said messy screen stays frozen until I do a hard reset. At first I thought my old DSDT became corrupt, so I deleted, restarted with no DSDT (injecting the intel graphics via Clover) and created a new one, using macIASL and Pjalm's patches for my board and a HD4000 patches. Surprise, surprise: the problem didn't go away. Then I deleted the new DSDT, restarted the computer in safe mode, and I tried again, this time using Toleda's Clover audio HDMI command tool, which created two SSDTs in the Clover ACPI/Patched folder - I need HDMI audio, and that's why I cannot settle with simply using Graphics Injector - and, as I feared, it didn't solve anything. I already ruled out the basic mistakes: lack of FakeSMC, VT-D being enabled in the BIOS, wrong SMBIOS for the build etc. The specs are: i7 3770 (non K), HD4000, Gigabyte B75M D3H, macOS Sierra 10.12.1, Clover (legacy mode) rev 3923 and SMBIOS set to iMac 13,1. All these settings worked fine since Mountain Lion (I started using Clover with Yosemite though). Any help would be much appreciated! All the best.
  15. Hey, vusun123: thank you for the answer. Unfortunately, I don't have this option in my config.plist, so no, I'm not injecting EDID. To be honest, I double checked everything, and it really should be working. P.S.: just tried with a barebones config.plist, it failed to boot even in safe mode, so I had to revert to the old one and delete again my patched DSDT via single user. P.P.S.: now with an appropriate Mac Mini SMBIOS! Same results with the patched DSDT (I just created a new one from vanilla, usial macIASL and Pjalm's B75M D3H and GFX HD4000 patches). Only boots in safe mode!!!!!
