  2. In the next days I will update this as I found some other stuff regarding quickSync, native nvram and audio. Since I have this new rig I want to share what I found out regarding installation of High Sierra. I will not explain how to make a bootable USB as everyone knows how an you can find it online everywhere. I will focus only on what is really needed to run High Sierra on this machine. I am using the latest 0606 bios. 1) in bios load setup defaults, disable fastboot and secure boot if they are not disabled after loading the defaults; 2) in bios disable CSM for correct resolution in clover boot loader (eg. 1920x1080); 3) you should have installed clover in your usb, we only need these kexts in "other" directory: - AppleALC.kext - CodecCommander.kext - FakeSMC.kext - IntelMausiEthernet.kext - Lilu.kext - USBInjectAll.kext - XHCI-200-series-injector.kext 4) there is no need for a patched DSDT or SSDT. Check these settings in Clover: USE SMBIOS iMac 18,3. That's it, while installing remove nvda_drv=1 and set nv_disable=1 then after you install the Nvidia Web Drivers put back nvda_drv=1 and remove nv_disable=1 The CPU will show as unknown but it will work with native power management and all cores (the bios defaults disables the MSR CFG Lock). If you are using more than one memory bank set the ram data manually in clover like for example this: If you are using SSD enable trim from terminal with the command "sudo trimforce enable". What I didn't bother with here is the HDMI audio of Nvidia. If you find something else that I may have left out let me know. So far everything is working. p.s. obviously you need to then install clover in the SSD / HDD and copy the kexts and the config.plist from your usb. If the pc boots to black screen try connecting the monitor to another HDMI port on the GFX card or to the DVI port. It's a problem of port mapping. I didn't try to install on NVME but I guess it's not a problem since the system recognizes my 960 evo natively.
  3. ciao ragazzi, vorrei comprare la suddetta scheda madre per una nuova configurazione, ma ho dei dubbi.. 1. la pci (non express) e' fattibile farla funzionare con mojave o high sierra? altra domanda conviene installare mac su M2 o conviene evitare e rimanere su SSD classico da 2,5"? grazie in anticipo

  5. Hello. I have a problem when i try to install Clover from USB. I have Gigabyte Z370 Gaming K3 + i7-9700K. When i try install i have this error: IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Anyone can help? Maybe you have good config.plist for this motherboard and cpu. Thanks for advice. PS: I attached screenshot and config.plist. Here you can find my kexts screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0ebme11ipw89vg0/Zrzut ekranu 2018-12-22 21.23.41.png?dl=0 config.plist
  6. Hey there So I managed to do a vanilla install of 10.14 on my new machine. I have 2 exact same displays hooked up to my ASUS STRIX RX470 8G. Display 1: connected via HDMI Display 2: connected via DVI to HDMI cable Display #1 works perfectly fine, but display #2 has a really ugly pink/ magenta tint to it. In Clover (in fact even in the first half of booting) the second display has the colors just right. Then, my screen glitches/ flashes for a second The display #1 continues to work properly, #2 turns pink. Any help would be very much appreciated!
  7. Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630 flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000 I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back. EFI DIRECTORY http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=97606131925137056003 HARDWARE CPU: Intel i5-8600K 3.6GHz hexacore (contains UHD 630 iGPU) CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim (no paste needed, and fan facing front) Mobo: GIGABYTE z370 AORUS Gaming 5 (WIFI) RAM: 1x 8GB CORSAIR Vengeance LPX C16 2666MHz (in first slot) GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4) HDD: generic DVD Drive: generic PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!) Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced. ADVICE With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly. I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not get iMessage to work properly. It worked precisely once, on my first installation attempt. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - if you can get NVRAM/PRAM working properly on this hardware, please do edit the config as you see fit. Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card. Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC. With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well. Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly. Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.
  8. Ho installato Mojave con Clover ma ho un problema con la USB 3.0. In tutte le porte sulla MOBO non riesco a far leggere i miei HDD esterni 3.0, invece la chiavetta 2.0 gira tranquillamente. Gli HDD esterni 3.0 vengono letti soltanto se collegati alla porta USB type A HUB 3.1 della scheda madre. Ho seguito la guida: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/335018-intel-fb-patcher-v165/ passo dopo passo e devo dire che è molto chiara. Ho anche aggiunto il file XHCI-unsupported.kext perché il mio controller è: 8086:A2AF. Ho avviato da -uia_exclude_sh e avviata l'app Intel FB-Patcher e dentro FB-Patcher vedole porte, collegare e ricollegare i dispositivi USB3 e una volta collegati gli HDD esterni USB 3.0 vedo che vengono rilevati correttamente. Cosi facendo cancello le porte non utilizzate ed esporto il file Kext e lo inserisco nella posizione corretta dentro EFI/CLOVER/ecc. ma non funziona ancora. Il problema lo ripeto: tutte le porte USB funzionano con chiavette USB 2.0 e non con USB 3.0. L'unica porta USB che funziona con le chiavette USB 3.0 è l'USB Type-A 3.1 HUB. La cosa strana è che questo problema è anche presente con: USBInjectAll.kext e XHCI-unsupported.kext inseriti (di solito funziona anche solo con questi). Allego la mia cartella Clover.

  9. Salve a tutti, Sono ormai un appassionato di hackintosh e posseggo 2 pc sulla mia postazione, cambio spesso hardware, l'ultima volta ho installato high sierra su z270 e i5 7600k con GTX 1070! Adesso volevo sapere se la procedura è identica per le z370 e gtx 1050ti! Potete linkarmi una guida se è possibile? Ho una chiavetta da 8gb disponibile e per crearla utilizzerei un altro hackintosh o virtual! Grazie in anticipo, attendo vostre istruzioni
  10. Hey guys I'm new here and hoping someone can help... I just successfully built my first hackintosh and at this point there is only the USB 3.0 problem that is keeping my new build from being fully (or as near as I need it) functional. Well actually it would be kinda nice to get onboard audio working, but that is less important. I used the infamous automated tools from a well known website to get to where I am now. I have read a little, but I still have no idea how to build DSDT or SSDT or what the difference/relationship between them is. I built a Gigabte Z370 Gaming 7 (F7 firmware) with I7-8700k and GTX 1080. At present I cannot seem to connect external storage to any of the USB 3.0 ports. I'm hoping there's a smart and generous soul out there who can help me out. Thanks
  11. Hi, I have been trying to follow @RehabMan 's guide to disable my dGPU ( https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-disabling-discrete-graphics-in-dual-gpu-laptops.163772/ ) for two days now, but haven't found a way to disable my 1080 Ti on my desktop Clover hack. I have a dual-boot (Win/Mac) machine on a Z370 Aorus 7. Since there's no nvidia drivers for Mojave atm, I want to stick with the iGPU under Mac, but still use the 1080 Ti under Win. The hack boots just fine when I remove the 1080 Ti, if it's plugged in via PCIe I get a kernel panic. Please find attached my ACPI folder, my clover config.plist and the kernel panic details. Might there even be a less hacky way than patching these ACPI files? I appreciate any kind of support! Thanks! ACPI.zip config.plist systemReport.txt
  12. I installed Mojave very well by following this guide. This guide is about a motherboard similar to mine but not mine so I have some problems. 1. The audio does not work, the internal sound of the motherboard does not detect me. FIXED 2. The USB 3.1 Type-C port connected to a monitor with a Type-C HDMI cable does not work (it is not detected as a thunderboald port) 3. USB 3.0 Don't work. 4. Wifi does not work, but maybe this is known and can not be resolved, not this card. Does anyone know which KEXTs are used to fix these problems?

  13. Hi There, hope you are fine :-) I have a big issue with no luck, everything was working flawless since I installed this new boy based on Z370 and High Sierra. And now for some unknow reason, he refuse to shutdown anymore. Everytime I try, he reboot. I've tried everything I've find like Fixshutdown,Darkwake, ERP in Bios, update to the latest F10 bios ... No luck ! Attached please find my config.plist... Thanks in advance for your help ! Best regards, MC config.plist

You have now created the macOS High Sierra Installer. In order to boot and install macOS onto your computer the installer requires the Clover boot loader from Clover team. The Clover boot loader contains, a configuration file ( config.plist) and kernal extensions (kexts), the config.plist and kexts are specific for each Hackintosh desktop / laptop computer build. Clover boot loader also has many other files and folders. I have already prepared a USB drive using the Clover installer and made edits to config.plist for this build, you can download and copy over my EFI Folder and skip steps in Spoiler below, then paste the downloaded EFI folder in the hidden USB EFI / ESP partition on your High Sierra USB installer drive. See the spoiler, using Clover installer to make High Sierra USB installer bootable. View the hidden macOS High Sierra Installer's EFI/ESP partition Open Terminal Copy and Paste into Terminal: diskutil list Enter Mount the USB EFI / ESP Partition onto the Desktop Again, from Terminal. Copy and Paste into Terminal: diskutil mount disk3s1 ** Identify your EFI partition from diskutil list command, in the example image above my external USB EFI is listed as disk3s, yours maybe different ** 3. Enter. The hidden EFI / ESP partition is now mounted on your desktop. Copy EFI Folder to USB EFI / ESP Partition ( Don't use the post install EFI folder at top of page, use post install EFI only after macOS High Sierra is installed ) 1. Download the PRE INSTALL EFI Folder here >> EFI.zip 2. Drag & Drop or Copy & Paste downloaded EFI folder into the mounted USB EFI / ESP partition. The bootable USB installer for macOS High Sierra is ready to use! INSTALL macOS HIGH SIERRA Insert the macOS High Sierra USB Installer into computer USB port. Start PC and immediately press keyboard F8. From Asus Boot Menu, choose your USB thumb drive. 4. Clover boot menu 5. Choose - Boot OS X install from Install macOS High Sierra.. Later in the guide, I will explain how to remove the extra entries on the boot menu, so you would have just High Sierra Icon and / or Windows. The extra entries are removed in config.plist in the uploaded EFI / Clover folder that I have provided. 6. Wait few mins! 7. Choose Languge 8. Select Disk Utility 9. From Disk Utility Menu --> View / Show All Devices 10. If Samsung 960 EVO drive is not visible in Disk Utility, follow these steps inside spoiler below. 11. Erase, disk. Give Name / Format: Mac OS Extended ( Journaled) / Scheme: GUID Partition Map 12. Partition, Format: APFS and apply 13. From macOS Utilities screen select Install macOS 14. Continue 15. Agree 16. Select Drive Macintosh or whatever you named it. 17. macOS is now installing 18. Wait... 19. Success ! POST INSTALLATION So far, you are using the macOS High Sierra USB installer to boot High Sierra. The USB installer EFI /ESP partition contains the downloaded EFI / Clover folder allowing you to boot to High Sierra desktop. So at this moment you can only boot High Sierra with the help of Clover on the USB installers hidden EFI / ESP partition. Next, steps is to make High Sierra boot without the need of the USB installer. Copy POST EFI folder to your High Sierra EFI / ESP Partition on your drive When you created the USB High Sierra installer, you mounted the EFI / ESP partition and copied over the EFI folder that I provided for the Asus Z370-G. Next, mount the hidden EFI/ESP partition on your High Sierra system drive. Then copy the >> or POST EFI folder to your macOS High Sierra system drive . To do this, follow steps below. 1. Identify discs to Mount with Terminal command: diskutil list ** Your disk IDENTIFIER may be different, the images are examples from my system ** 2. Terminal command below to Mount macOS EFI/ESP partition: diskutil mount disk0s1 3. System drive, EFI / ESP partition is mounted on desktop 4. Drag & Drop OR Copy & Paste EFI / ESP folder from EFI - POST-INSTALL over to EFI / ESP drive partition: 5. Done! You can now boot and use macOS High Sierra on your computer without the need for the USB device Mostly everything should now be working if you used the same hardware that I listed in parts. In the rest of this guide will explain some basic troubleshooting steps, how install NVIDIA web drivers, how sound was installed.. etc. STEPS TO EDIT CLOVER CONFIG.PLIST 1. You need to mount the EFI / ESP partition to edit the Clover config.plist. Previously, the guide used teminal commands diskutil list and diskutil mount to mount hidden EFI/ESP partitions. This guide will now use an app to mount the EFI / ESP partition. Download @Micky1979 >>ESP Mounter Pro on InsanelyMac and use it to mount the EFI / ESP partitions so that you can view, make edits to config.plist, add extra kexts if needed etc. A quick peak at the EFI / Clover contents, highlighting most common files and folders. 2. Download >> Clover Configurator from mackie100, it is used to edit and make changes to config.plist. Open mounted EFI partition, navigate to EFI / Clover, make a copy of config.plist and rename it config.BAK. Then drag and drop conf.plist onto desktop. Make changes, save and drag & drop back inside EFI partition. Clover Configurator default screen, always save before quitting Clover Configurator! Some people will be very familiar with how to find and configure config.plist, I'm listing this guide with extra steps for those new to Hackintosh. BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING TIP You might make changes to config.plist with Clover Configurator or add kexts and then discover that you can no longer reach High Sierra desktop or boot. The USB installer can be used to boot your Hackintosh ( I mentioned it was a handy troubleshooting tool ). The USB installers Clover boot loader can boot your computer to the High Sierra desktop. You can then mount the EFI/ESP partition and undo config.plist edits or delete last added kexts that have prevented you from booting to your High Sierra Desktop or just replace the whole EFI folder on your computer with the EFI folder from the USB installer. If the above troubleshooting was unsuccessful and you still can't boot your Hackintosh. From the Clover boot screen, enter Clover options: Select Boot macOS from Macintosh Then press spacebar Check: Verobse (-v) Return Enter The Verbose (-v) option will point to where in the startup process your Hackintosh stops, it's also worth checking BIOS settings before starting any troubleshooting. You can then search in the InsaneleyMac forums for a solution, or ask other members. HOW TO DISABLE / ENABLE SIP Sometimes when troubleshooting or installing kexts, you may have to disable Apple System Integrity Protection ( SIP ). To disable or enable SIP, mount the EFI / ESP partiton using ESP Mounter Pro or Terminal then edit config.plist with the Clover Configurator. Example: Disable SIP in Clover Configurator: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x67 Partially disable: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x3 ( Clover Default ) Enable: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x0 TIDY CLOVER BOOT SCREEN Clover adds extra MacOS and Windows entries on the Clover boot menu. Below is what my Clover menu initially looked like after installing Mac OS High Sierra and adding a Windows drive to my build. The High Sierra Clover theme is from >> hirakujira I wanted the Clover boot menu to just show Mac OS High Sierra and Windows. Remove extra entries using Clover Configurator Add the Preboot string to config.plist ( Removes Apple Preboot entries ) Add theRecovery string to config.plist ( Removes the Mac OS High Sierra recovery option ) Set Scan / Legacy checkbox to false in config.plist ( Removes the extra Windows entries ) After applying the settings in Clover Configurator, save and reboot. Minimalist Clover boot screen. MULTIBOOT WITH WINDOWS Temporarily disconnect / remove your High Sierra Drive from your Hackintosh Computer. Install a 2nd drive inside the computer then install Windows on it. Reattach your High Sierra Drive. Clover will detect your Windows and High Sierra drive when you start your computer. I already had Windows 10 as an EFI install on a Samsung 500GB EVO SSD on another computer. After completing my Hackintosh I then simply attached the Samsung EVO SSD into the new built Hackintosh. Upon rebooting it was detected by Clover. So I have two drives, Windows on the Samsung EVO and High Sierra on the NVMe Samsung EVO 960. NVIDIA / WEB DRIVERS *** There is many Nvidia Web Drivers for different builds / updates of macOS High Sierra *** Some times you may have to reinstall or update your Nvidia web drivers after a macOS update. To install the proper Nvidia Web driver ( for GTX10 Series ), collect the following information from your macOS High Sierra installation. You can find this information in "About This Mac" and clicking on the System Report button. In the lefthand window, click on Software. macOS High Sierra Version Number macOS High Sierra Build Number Using this >> Nvidia Web Drivers Link. identify your build number and download WebDriver As an example, I have build number 17C88 and I downloaded WebDriver-378. Configure Nvidia Web driver in config.plist using Clover Configurator Mount EFI partition and drag and drop config.plist onto desktop and open with Clover Configurator. Enable the following in config.plist: 1. System Parameters / NvidiaWeb = True ( tick ) 2. Graphics / ig-platform-id = 0x59120003 ( Intel & Nvidia ) 3. Graphics / Inject Intel = True ( tick ) Save config.plist and drag and drop back into the EFI partition. Check Nvidia Video card is working Download and Install >> Cuda driver Managing Nvidia Web Driver for High Sierra update's using Vulgo's Bash Script If you have installed an update that breaks Nvidia graphics, use the bash script to modify the Nvidia Web Driver for the new build number.

Continuing to use the port limit patch can cause problems as it causes access outside a fixed array bounds. Access outside a fixed array bound can result in other memory locations being overwritten, those other memory locations will contain data that you don't won't overwritten!. So the port limit patch is not recommended for long term use. Ports limit patch is good for macOS USB installer purpose. Ports limit patch is disabled in my POST INSTALL EFI folder. Below is the USB ports limit patch shown in clover configurator: FIX Note, external 2x USB2 ports HS09 and HS10 are deliberately disabled to get port count below 15. If you have a different motherboard you can use IORegistryExplorer for port discovery and eliminate some ports to get below the 15 port limit. You can create an SSDT for port limit to use with USBInjectAll.kext. Or, If you are not keen on creating the SSDT file, then you can use "uia_exclude=" boot flag in config.plist and have USBInjectAll.kext exclude those ports. Rehabman has a great guide on port discovery & SSDT. >>Creating a Custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext When you know what ports you want to eliminate, then you would set custom boot flags using "uia_exclude=" in config.plist. USBInjectAll.kext would then ignore those ports listed by "uia_exclude=" boot flag. Example: using "uia_exclude=" boot flag to keep USB port below 15 uia_exclude=HS07;HS08;HS09;HS10;HS11;HS13;HS14;SS07;SS08;SS09;SS10 If you have Asus Z370-G as per this guide then don't use custom boot flags as it's already done with SSDT-UIAC.aml Disable Ports Limit Patch: SSDT-UIAC.aml ( USB PORTS FIX ) My ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI with Bluetooth card is installed in motherboard slot: PCIE_X1_2 the ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI with Bluetooth card USB cable is attached on internal USB1112 header (HS12) on the motherboard. If you have a Wifi card with Bluetooth in a different PCIE slot then remove SSDT-UIAC.aml from EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED and download SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl and change HS12 for appropriate port and save SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl as ACPI Machine Language Binary and place file in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED. IMESSAGES This worked for me on my first attempt, I suggest using an Apple WiFi card for hassle free iMessages etc... I'm using an original >> Apple BCM943602CS WIFI+bluetooth module and adapter, this has native support in macOS High Sierra and needs no kexts / drivers. It works out of the box! If you can't get a hold of this card used in this build, then try sourcing a PCIe adapter and fitting an iMac WiFi card to it. Purchase adapter on >> Ebay or Amazon Apple iMac WiFi card, part Number >> 607-8967 Or use a MacBook Air WiFi card & adapter, it would directly replace the Asus Wifi card and free up PCIe slots.

  15. Ciao, Grazie al supporto di questo forum e dei moderatori ho completato la mia installazione di Mojave 10.14.1 sul mio PC. Montando il tutto sul case mi sono accorto che il Jack cuffie microfono frontale del case, correttamente collegato come HD Audio nella MT non funziona. Prima di perderci molto tempo vorrei capire se è possibile farlo funzionare con un Hackintosh o meglio lasciar perdere?

  18. Buonasera a tutti, con l'aiuto di gengik84 sono riuscito ad installare Mojave. Apro un post separato per l'ottimizzazione post installazione. L'Hack si avvia regolarmente anche se in fase di boot riscontro diversi rallentamenti ma credo siano da attribuire alla non ultimata configurazione. Per ora quello che non funziona è: - Il video funziona ma ha grossi rallentamenti nello scrolling. Non so se debba installare qualche kexts. -Audio non funziona -iMessage -AirDrop Chi mi potrebbe aiutare e mi può indicare cosa debba fare? Ringrazio anticipatamente tutti. Grazie
  19. Ragazzi sto tentando di installare mojave da 0 posso usare la stessa efi utilizzata per high sierra o devo cambiare qualcosa (aggiorno tutti i kext all'ultima versione) ?? non riesco ancora ad avviare mojave finita l'installazione qualcuno puo vedere se sbaglio qualcosa
  20. Buenas a todos, podriais decirme la configuración de la Bios de una Asus z370-F para optimizar la velocidad de mis dos M.2 Samsung? No tengo claro como debo configurarlo muchas gracias.

  23. Hi, I'm using 10.12.6 on Z77x-UD3H + 2600k + rx 560. I'm planning to upgrade my hack to a coffeelake. There are some models at my price range but I still don't know which is the best for hackintosh because they're quite new. They are: - Asus: Strix Z370-F Gaming, Strix Z370-H Gaming, Prime Z370-A - Asrock z370 Extreme4 I had many bad experience with MSI so I don't list them here neither do I like Gigabyte because their price in my country is not good at all... I use my hack for my audio studio, so stability, reliability and ease of config are the most important things. Thank you!
  24. Oh no, the one in the signature is my personal hackintosh and it's still on 10.12.6 This one is Gigabyte Z370, i7-8700, 960 EVO NVME and an RX580
