    MacOS Sierra su HP 250 G5 W4N06EA

    Salve a tutti ragazzi, vorrei installare Sierra sul mio nuovo notebook. Avete qualche guida da consigliarmi? i3-5005U (Broadwell) 4GB Ram DDR 3 Intel HD Graphics 5500
  2. Sadly i got banned on tonymacx86.com for the mentioning of "Pandoras Box" in this tutorial (reason: "Blatant Disregard of Forum Policies on Piracy"). Thats why i post and update it here Dell XPS 15 (9550, Version of 2016) Sierra 10.13.1 Tutorial Please use the GITHUB version of this text, because this tutorial got too fragmented for a simple forum thread - thanks to the latest Dell Firmware 1.2.25 which requires multiple different versions and tutorials and made the installation of OSX much harder for newbies Before we start: this installation includes real time DSDT/SSDT patching from within clover. This is pretty easy to install. But it is NOT suited for people with no or only few knowledge in Hackintosh Systems. If you only know how to copy commands in your shell and you dont know what they're doing, then stop the tutorial and revert to windows or buy a real mac. Even if you get it running: this system is not failsafe and will be broken multiple times in its usage time, where you have to fix it without a tutorial. Optional steps are marked in GREEN, System dependent steps are BLUE English is not my mother-tongue and i'm writing this without proof reading, so please forgive my bad spelling If you've questions or something doesn't work: first check if you've done all steps of this tutorial! If yes: please read the whole thread (doesn't matter how long it is) before asking to prevent multiple questions. Additionally do a search in google and this forum. Credits: Many knowledge of "how to hackintosh a dell in the first place" by the tutorial of @Gymnae http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319766-dell-xps-9550-detailled-1011-guide/ Using many kexts and solutions from @RehabMan What's not working: Hibernation (works somehow, but high chance to destroy your whole data), Sleep works fine! SD-Card reader Killer 1535 Wifi (rarely used, need replace) nVidia Graphics card (Intel works) FileVault 2 (full HDD encryption) Requirements: one working MAC OS X Enviroment 16GB USB Stick (larger is sometimes not bootable and/or requires advanced partitioning) MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1 installation file from the app store (redownload, just in case) Knowledge in PLIST editing USB Harddrive for backup - you'll loose all data on your computer! Step 1: Prepare Installation Use the existing Mac to download the Sierra installer from the App Store and create a bootable USB stick with CLOVER. You can do this with the App "Pandora's Box" of insanelymac (use google for download link), which is pretty easy to use. Optional: check if your SSD can be switched to 4k sector size. This prevents NVMe corruption. See https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/4k_sector.md After you've finished you need to download the Dell XPS 15 specific configurations for clover. Link: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/archive/10.13.zip and unzip this file or checkout git directly: git clone https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX.git You only need the folder 10.13, you can delete the 10.11. I'll refer to this folder by "git/" Now mount the hidden EFI partition of the USB Stick by entering diskutil mount EFI Inside the terminal. Mac OS will automaticly mount the EFI partition of the USB stick, but just in case: make sure it really is Overwrite everything in the CLOVER folder of the partition EFI with the content of git/10.13/CLOVER. If your PC has a Core i5 processor, you'll have to modify your config.plist in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/: search for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000. If you could use the 4k sector patch, replace the config.plist with the 4kconfig.plist. If you use a hynix device and you didnt do the 4k sector switch, you'll have to add the following patch to your config.plist <key>Comment</key> <string>IONVMeFamily Pike R. Alpha Hynix SSD patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>9sEQD4UcAQAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>IONVMeFamily</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>9sECD4UcAQAA</data> Go into the EFI Configuration (BIOS) of your Dell XPS 15: Also disable the SD-Card Reader to reduce the power consumption drastically. Insert the stick on the Dell XPS 15 and boot it up holding the F12 key to get in the boot-menu and start by selecting your USB-Stick (if you've done it correctly it's named "Clover: Install macOS Sierra", otherwise it's just the brandname of your USB-Drive). You should get to the MacOS Installation like on a real mac. If you're asked to log-in with your apple-id: select not now! Reason: see Step 5. Step 2: Partition and Installation INFORMATION: after this step your computer will loose ALL data! So if you haven't created a backup, yet: QUIT NOW! Dont install macOS yet. Select the Diskutil and delete the old partitions. Create a new HFS partition and name it "OSX". If you want to multiboot with Windows 10, then you'll have to create a second partition, too (also HFS! Dont use FAT or it will not boot! You have to reformat it when installing Windows). Make sure to select GUID as partition sheme. Close the Diskutil and install OSX normally. You'll have to reboot multiple times, make sure to always boot using the attached USB stick. So dont forget to press F12. After the first reboot you should see a new boot option inside clover, which is highlighted by default. Just press enter. If you only see one, then something went wrong. Step 3: Make it bootable After a few reboots you should be inside your new macOS enviroment. You can always boot into it using the USB stick. Remove the USB drive after successful bootup. Enter diskutil mount EFI in your terminal, which should mount the EFI partition of your local installation. install git/Additional/Tools/Clover_v2.4k_r4003.pkg. Make sure to select "Install Clover in ESP". Also select to install the RC-Scripts. This should install the Clover Boot System. Now copy everything from git/10.13/CLOVER to EFI/CLOVER like you did before by creating the usb stick. (if you had to modify the config.plist in step 1, do it here, too). Your system should be bootable by itself. Reboot and check if your system can boot by itself. Step 4: Post Installation Because all DSDT/SSDT changes are already in the config.plist, you dont need to recompile your DSDT (albeit i suggest doing it anyway to make your system a lil bit more failsafe, see gymnaes El-Capitan tutorial for more informations). So we can skip this part and go directly to the installation of the required kexts. Open a terminal and goto the GIT folder. sudo cp -r ./Post-Install/LE-Kexts/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.bak 2> /dev/null sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.bak 2> /dev/null sudo ./AD-Kexts/VoodooPS2Daemon/_install.command Now you'll have to replace the config.plist. Because you'll install modified kexts you'll HAVE TO replace the config.plist in your installation. Otherwise your PC will not boot anymore. diskutil mount EFI replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with git/Post-Install/CLOVER/config.plist. Again: if your PC has a Core i5 processor, search the config.plist for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000. OPTIONAL (in case you've audio problems): AppleHDA has some problems after Wake-Up. You'll have to plug in a headphone to get your speakers working again. You can use VoodooHDA instead, which breaks the headphone jack most of the time, but makes the rest much more stable. sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/CodecCommander.kext sudo rm /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/SSDT-ALC298.aml then remove from your config.plist from the key "KextsToPatch" the elements "AppleHDA#1" to "AppleHDA#7". Install the package: git/Post-Install/AD-Kexts/VoodooHDA-2.8.8.pkg i also suggest moving some of the kext from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13 to /Library/Extensions. It's just more stable. Finalize the kext-copy by recreating the kernel cache: sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache sudo rm -rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sometimes you'll have to redo the last command if your system shows "Lock acquired". OSX 10.12.2 removed the posibility to load unsigned code. You can enable this by entering sudo spctl --master-disable If you're using the 4K monitor, you'll have to copy the UHD enabling kexts to your clover directory: sudo cp ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/UHD-Kexts/* /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/ To enable GPU acceleration: Edit your clover config file again and remove the following block from it: To prevent getting in hibernation (which can and will corrupt your data), just set the default sleep mode to "suspend to ram" (sleep) instead of "suspend to disk" (hibernation) sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 To get HDMI Audio working: Search for your Boarrd-ID in the config.plist and open /S/E/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/contents/plugin/AppleGraphicePolicy.kext/contents/info.plist with a texteditor. Search for your board-id in there and change the value of it from "Config2" to "none" OPTIONAL (alternative power management): the whole power management is done by intels speed step technology (HWP), which is enabled in the clover config. If you want to let OSX manage the power management, you'll have to do these steps: sudo cp ./Post-Install/CLOVER/ACPI/optional/SSDT.aml /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ then open the config.plist (/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist) and change <key>HWPEnable</key><true/> to <key>HWPEnable</key><false/>. Step 5: iServices (AppStore, iMessages etc.) WARNING! DONT USE YOUR MAIN APPLE ACCOUNT FOR TESTING! It's pretty common that apple BANS your apple-id from iMessage and other services if you've logged in on not well configured hackintoshs! If you want to use the iServices, you'll have to do some advanced steps, which are not completly explained in this tutorial. First you need to switch the faked network device already created by step 4 to be on en0. Goto your network settings and remove every network interface. sudo rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot, go back in the network configuration and add the network interfaces (LAN) before Wifi. You also need to modify your SMBIOS in the config.plist of Clover in your EFI partition with valid informations about your "fake" mac. There are multiple tutorials which explain how to do it like "http://www.fitzweekly.com/2016/02/hackintosh-imessage-tutorial.html". It's possible you have to call the apple hotline to get your fake serial whitelisted by telling a good story why apple forgot to add your serial number in their system. (aka: dont do it if you dont own a real mac). I personally suggest using real data from an old (broken) macbook. Step 6: Upgrading to macOS 10.13.2 or higher / installing security updates Each upgrade will possibly break your system! (Update: after the latest updates in this tutorial the system should be update-proof.) Step 7: Fixes / Enhancements / Alternative Solutions / Bugs See: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/Tutorial_10.13_Step7.md Afterword and fixes as i said before: this is not a tutorial for absolute beginners, albeit it's much easier then most other tutorials, because most is preconfigured in the supplied config.plist. Some Dells have components included, which are not supported by these preconfigured files. Then i can only suggest using Gymnaes tutorial which explains most of the DSDT patching, config.plist editing and kexts used in detail and use the supplied files here as templates. Warning: Some people have reported multiple data losses on this machine. I suggest using time-machine whenever possible! If your device is detected as "Model Name: Apple Device", see: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319764-guide-dell-xps-15-9550-sierra-10122-quick-installation/page-13?do=findComment&comment=2362337 If you want to save the settings of the display brightness: downgrade to clover 3899, in the never versions the nvram restore is broken. USBInjectAll is not intended for permanent use. You should check which USB are really required to be injected and modify your DSDT/SSDT. 4K Touchscreen only: Multitouch can be achieved with the driver from touch-base.com, but it's not open source - costs > 100 $ Not a bug: if you REALLY want to use the 4K Display natively and disable the Retina Mode (max 1920x1080), see: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/macbook-pro-retina-display-faq/macbook-pro-retina-display-hack-to-run-native-resolution.html Tutorial Updates 27. March 2017: UHD Kexts added, replaces perl command 23. March 2017: 4k sector tutorial against NVMe corruption added 7. March 2017: Suggestion to disable the SD Card Reader for reduced power consumption 4. February 2017: Dell SMBIOS Truncation workaround added 23. January 2017: Hynix SSD fix added 31. December 2016: USB-C Hotplug Fix and USB InjectAll Removed 28. December 2016: NVMe SSDT Spoof precreated, FakeID already preset in installation config.plist. VoodooHDA added as alternative to SSDT-ALC298 patch as well as color coding in tutorial 22. December 2016: FakeSMBios added Accessories Appendix: The official Dell adaptor DA200 (http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=at&l=de&s=dhs&cs=atdhs1&sku=470-abry) works completly on Sierra 10.2.2. You can use the Network, USB, HDMI and VGA. Everything is Hot-Pluggable a cheap 3rd party noname USB-C -> VGA adaptor didnt work you can charge the Dell with a generic USB-C Power Adaptor, but USB-C has only a maximum power of 100W, so it's either charging OR usage, not both. Dont forget you need a special USB-C cable (Power Delivery 3.0) for charging.
  3. No hokus pokus - No magic I am basically making this more current and simplifying it for people with HP Z800 wanting to run Sierra. With a bit more detail on the BIOS settings All credit really goes to: chatdeau, Rockey12 and ZoroZZ for helping out and creating the first topic on the HP Z series found here I am not sure who to credit for the kexts but a big THANK YOU to whoever you are! The HP Z series is very powerful and affordable computers which I simply think is a brilliant Hackintosh solution. MY HW Specification : HP Z800 with BIOS version : 3.60 CPU: x2 6-core X5690 RAM: 32 GB GFX: ATI HD5870 SSD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB What you need. - A HP Z800/600 (obviously) - A working computer running Mac OS X - A 8gb or higher USB 2.0 key - Mac OS X Sierra app - Latest CLOVER - The Attached Kexts Step one – BIOS Update Update your BIOS to the latest (currently it is 3.60 Rev.A 14 Apr 2016) Download there The easiest way is to run the flash tool on a Windows installation. Step two – BIOS settings Setup the BIOS settings with the following settings. Please keep in mind that there might be option you can turn on or off depending on your need but this is just what worked for me. Storage > Storage Options - Removal Media Boot = Enable - Legacy Diskette Write = Enable - SATA Emulation = RAID+AHCI Security > System Security - Data Execution Prevention = Enable - Virtualization (VTx) = Disable - Virtualization (VT-d2) = Disable - AES Instruction = Enable Security > Device Security (Everything to “Device Available” except these) - Serial port = Hidden - Internal USB = Hidden - SAS Controller = Hidden - Legacy Diskette = Hidden - Embedded Security = Hidden Power > OS Power Management - Runtime Power Man = Enable - MWAIT-Aware OS = Enable - Idle Power savings = Extended - ACPI S3 Hard Disk = Disable - ACPI S3 PS2 Mouse = Enable - USB Wake = Disable - Unique Sleep State = Disable Power > Hardware Power Management - SATA Power Manage = Enable - Intel Turbo Boost = Enable - Enhanced Intel Turbo Boost = Enable - EUP Compliance = Enable Advanced > Processor - Hyper-Threading = Enable - Active Cores = All Cores - Limited CPUID = Disable Advanced > Chipset/Memory - PCI SERR# Generation = Disable - PCI VGA Palette Snooping = Disable - Enhanced Memory Performance = Enable Advanced > Device Options - Num Lock = Off - S5 Wake on LAN = Enable - Multi-Processor = Enable - Internal Speaker = Disable - Monitor Tracking = Disable - NIC PXE = Disable - SATA RAID Option ROM = Enable Step tree – Create the USB Download the Mac OS Sierra installer app from the Appstore on a working computer running Mac Run Disk Utility and format the USB key as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID Partition Map. I just named the USB Key Untitled as standard Then open terminal and run this command to create the USB key sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app Please note that this part of the command “/Volumes/Untitled” is the path to the USB key and if you have named it anything else than “Untitled” you will have to edit it with the name of your USB key. Once the command is done you have to install Clover which can be downloaded here Run the clover pkg and remember to “Change Install Location” to your usb. Then choose costumize and choose the following: - Bootloader - Install boot0af in MBR - CloverEFI - CloverEFI 64-bits SATA Once Clover is installed you will need to add the following Kexts (attached below) to the /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12 folder on your USB Key. - AHCIPortInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext - FakeSMC_v6.16.1372_netkas.kext - IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement_v1.0.0d2_tgwbd.kext Step four – Boot to Installation Insert the USB key and start the computer. At the HP screen choose F9 to choose boot option. Then select USB drive When you are at the CLOVER screen you can choose options and in the boot arguments you should write use the –v bootflag to be able to see what is going on in case there is any errors. In my case I am using a ATI 5870 GPU and I don’t need to do anything as the ATI 5xxx series is supported but Mac OS X by default. If you have an Nvidia card you need to add the nv_disable=1 boot argument to avoid a black screen. Now run the installer as you would with any Mac and at the install screen you shall rund Disk Utility and format the drive you want to use as we did previously with the USB key. Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID Partition Map. The installer will reboot the computer and when It starts again you need to hit F9 again select the USB key but this time at the Clover screen You need to choose your newly created Hard drive. The Installer will continue after this and boot one last time before booting in to the new system. Please note that you need to boot from the USB and choose the hard drive each time at the Clover screen. Step five – Make the OS bootable Once you are running your new OS you will need to install clover to that drive like we did previously on the USB key. Run the clover pkg and remember to “Change Install Location” to your hard drive. Then choose costumize and choose the following: - Bootloader - Install boot0af in MBR - CloverEFI - CloverEFI 64-bits SATA Once Clover is installed you will need to add these following Kexts found here to the /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12 folder on you’re the OS X hard drive. If you have an Nvidia GPU you will need to install the web driver which is found here And use the nvda_drv=1 boot flag at the clover screen. You will need to add this to the config.plist ether manually or with clover configurator to avoid typing it in all the time. Enjoy your new powerful hackintosh. HP Z800 kexts Sierra.zip

    Installazione Sierra su Asus x556u

    Salve a tutti ragazzi, vorrei installare Sierra sul mio Asus. Potete darmi una mano per favore?
  8. Ciao a tutti, sono un nuovo utente del forum. E da circa 2 mesi mi sono appassionato del mondo dell'Hackintosh....ho infatti un dual Boot (Win10 e Yosemite) sul mio Portatile Samsung RF511 i7 e da 2 mesi appunto ho comprato una vecchia Apple TV 1' Gen sulla quale cercavo disperatamente di installargli un OS X. Ho avuto successo installandogli Tiger 10.4.8 ma era troppo primitivo....quindi ho optato per Leopard ma tutti i siti con le guide, non erano disponibili...insomma un vicolo cieco! Ho avuto la brillante idea di "svuotare" la Apple TV in modo da inserirgli dentro una scheda madre che sia però compatibile con Hackintosh! Ho visto che ci sono Mini PC intel come il Voyo V3 che sono abbastanza performanti e piccoli per stare dentro al Case della mia Apple TV. La mia domanda è: Esiste una mini Scheda Madre gia Assemblata (Vedi Voyo v2-v3 o Beelink B7 dotati di processore intel) che sia in grado di far girare una versione di Mac OS X in modo da avere una specie di MAC Mini fatto in casa? Grazie mille!
  9. Hello there! I have been trying to install El Capitan 10.11.4 on my system. It is a HP 250 G2 Laptop. I have only been successful in installing on VMware using VMware unlocker and also changing the CPUID in the VMX file. After creating and installer with tutorials from Eladnava.com I was able to create an installer with Clover. But trying to boot, I keep getting: OsxAptioFixDrv: Starting overrides for \.

  11. Hey All, I'm having some difficulties installing (and booting) macOS Sierra on my computer. I seem to have some weird Kernel Panic that I have never seen before and I have tried a bunch of different boot flags, and different install routes. I also tried installing El Captain but the exact same thing happened. Consider My PC Specs: Acer Aspire T: ATC-605-ER34 Intel i7-4770 Processor Nvidia GT 730 Graphics Card 8 Gigabytes of RAM Both my Sound and Wifi cards are not compatible with Mac OS, so I have external USB adapters for that. My computer is Running 3 Operating Systems: Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite (2 Copies of this, one is an old version I have yet to delete.) Windows 10 Currently, I have Clover as my boot loader and booting I am using the boot flags dart=0 and nv_disable=1 and it is Injecting Nvidia. There is nothing put in the SMBIOS section, other than iMac 14,2 as the product name. I should be able to respond pretty quickly if anyone has any questions. I hope someone can help me out, thanks.
  12. Hi people! In these days I'm trying to install macOS Sierra on my PC with also Windows installed. My hardware isn't exactly brand new: Intel Core 2 Quad q8600, 7GB ram and nVidia GTS450 1GB on an Asus P5Q SE, so no UEFI avaible. I'd like to install macOS on a 64GB Lexar USB 3 inserted in my USB 3 PCI-e x1 module, but my mobo doesn't see the device (incompatible bios?), I can see that only in Windows. My idea is to install a boot loader (Chameleon? Clover?) on a USB 2 stick connected directly to the motherboard and from that boot the MacOS on the Lexar USB 3 or Windows from my HDD. Is that possible? Clover or Chameleon could see my PCI-e module? Now, I was out of hackintosh scene for a while, I know that many things changed in these years, so sorry if I asked something obvious. Thank you in advance for your help!
  13. So I boot OS X El Capitan from my Clover USB Drive, and instead of being presented with the option to Install, it gives me the option to reinstall. Odd if I do say so myself. OS X has never touched any of the drives in my PC, save for InstallESD.dmg, so it shouldn't be telling me to REinstall it. Anyway, I tried to use that option and it gives me a message saying that it will now connect to Apple's Servers for something, then it presents the error in the title ("Could not find information for this mac, contact apple care") Any thoughts?

    ACPI Kernel Panic...Help?

    My specs are in my signature, along with a very important message for you all. Alrighty, here's my situation. I boot up from my clover USB, which has El Capitan on it as well (Created with BootDiskUtility). I start in with the following boot flags: "nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=No -s -x -v -f". Under the El Pwn image, this would get me to the installer but would immediately tell me that OS X is already installed. Problem is, none of my drives have ever been touched by OS X. So I moved to BDU and now it throws me an error regarding AppleACPIPlatform.kext Does anyone have a solution to this problem? So far the forum posts that describe my problem are unanswered.

    Hello there, i need help!

    Hello there, i'm Andrea, a new member. I got this problem and i hope to get some help from people who know better than me. I currently work on a Mac Pro, late 2014, the black cylinder, and I'm moving to a hackintosh by september. I do have a time machine backup, and first question is, can i start my new hackintosh from a backup? Moreover, i use my mac in a studio, we produce music, and we bought all plugins and libraries, so nothing crack'd, will the new mackintosh requires all the activation codes? I will be installing Yosemite on the hackintosh, is it the right choice? i've never had any problems on my original mac with this OS. Will I have some drivers problems, having a firewire external audio device, a midi keyboard, and 2 HD i use for backup and libraries storing? The main question, basically, is: will this hackintosh be as my mac, if we talk about iOS and compatibility? i'll list my new pc here to help you all give me a hand: - Motherboard Asus Z97-A - Intel i7-4790K - Dissipatore Noctua NH-U12S - Grafica integrata intel HD 4600 (3 monitor fino a 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz —> 2K) - 2x schede FireWire (ognuna con 1 da 400 e 2 da 800) - RAM Kingston Hypk 4x8GB Hyper X Savage [HX324C11SRK4/32] - 2400 MHz - SSD Samsung MZ-75E500B/EU 850 EVO, 500G B, 2.5" SATA III - WiFi Airport Extreme TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 - Chassis Corsair (CC-9011076-WW) case mid tower ATX insonorizzato Carbide 330R Blackout Edition nero - 2x Startech.Com Adattatore Universale per Staffa di Montaggio Disco Rigido 3.5'' per Alloggiamento 5.25’’ - Corsair RM650 CP-9020054-EU Alimentatore ATX/EPS Serie RM da 650 Watt, Completamente Modulare con Certificazione 80 Plus Gold

    My first build, will this work?

    Hello, everyone! I'm currently getting ready to buy all the parts to my first hackintosh rig and I need a little help from some experts. First, a little background. I film professionally. With that comes a lot of video editing, and all the editing software we use at my office are Mac OS X based which is why I'm building a hackintosh in the first place. Currently, I'm editing off of a Macbook Pro with a 2.4 ghz i7 proccessor, 8gb DDR3 RAM, Dual Graphics (Intel HD 4000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M) with a 250gb SSD drive. Pretty nice and portable rig, but doesn't quite cut it when breaking into the realm of 4k. So, I figured I'd build a powerful rig that can dual boot Mac OS X and Windows 10. That way I can also use it as a gaming rig for entertainment at home and in the office. Also trying to keep it fairly portable, hense the mini itx suggestions. Here are the parts I'm considering for my rig, hoping that you guys can help me figure out what's compatible, what isn't, what could be a better value, etc. Thank you in advance: Processor: Intel Boxed Core I5-6500 FC-LGA14C 3.20 Ghz 6 M Processor Cache 4 LGA 1151 (BX80662I56500​) Motherboard: Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel H170 Mini-ITX DDR4 Motherboard GA-H170N-WIFI RAM: Ballistix Sport LT 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DIMM 288-Pin - BLS2K8G4D240FS​B (Gray) SSD: Samsung 850 EVO - 250GB - 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E250B/AM​) FAN: Noctua Low-Profile Quiet CPU Cooler for Intel 115x Based Retail Cooling NH-L9I Power Supply: Mini-Box picoPSU-160-XT High Power 24 Pin Mini-ITX Power Supply WIFI Card: BCM94352Z NGFF M.2 WiFi WLAN Bluetooth 4.0 802.11ac up to 867 Mbps card 22*30mm Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti SC 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card 02G-P4-3753-KR Case: SilverStone Technology Mini-ITX Slim Small Form Factor Computer Case RVZ02B Thanks again for reading my post, guys. Hopefully you can help me get this list settled in and I can build my first rig. Can't wait!

  20. Ciao a tutti, dove aver provato qualche mese fa a trasformare la mia configurazione AMD in un hackintosh , ed essermi ritrovato con moltissimi problemi, moltissimi risolti grazie anche all'aiuto di @carlo_67, ed alcuni impossibili da risolvere. Molti software come quelli di sistema come l'app di riproduzione di fotografie di Yosemite e moltissimi altri software come Photoshop, Illustrator la suite di Canon ed altri ancora ho deciso di eliminare la partizione di questo sistema, visto che mi risultava impossibile lavorarci. Ora però vorrei chiedervi se ci sono delle configurazioni ''Low Cost'' compatibili al 100%, ovviamente sono consapevole che un hackintosh non sarà mai pienamente compatibile con il sistema OSX ma almeno che si avvicini. Ovviamente ho già a disposizione alcuni componenti come RAM da 4GB da 1600 , SSD120 + HD meccanico da 500GB, ed alimentatore da 600W ed anche la scheda video (molto fiacca) Asus GT 210 da 1GB, che ovviamente andrà cambiata. Ovviamente l'uso sarà quello vettoriale con programmi di grafica, e di fotoritocco. Non chiedo video-editing in 4K ma possibilmente fino a 1080P in modo fluido. Io pensavo ad una configurazione Micro Atx con un case costruito da me, ma lascio comunque a voi l'idea. Non vi vorrei lasciare un budget perché sembrerei un morto di fame.
  21. Hello, I loosed my all hope and came to write here again. I purchased a PC for using hackintosh. I always have an unfortunate luck. I have purchased my custom build PC some days ago...I've asked for "Gigabyte GA-H97-D3H" Motherboard...But the seller given me "Gigabyte GA-H97-HD3" and I didn't notice that while I've purchased. My Desktop PC Specs Are: Processor: i5-4460 Graphics: Intel 4600 Ram: (8GB+4GB=12GB) DDR3 Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H97-HD3 HDD: Toshiba PSU: Thermaltake 450w Now the problem is: ------------------> I can't install OSX Elcapitan 10.11 to my Desktop PC. I'm showing the problem step by step: I have clover installed USB-Bootable Pendrive. So entireing to my clover menu I add "-v" as boot args then "Boot OSX Base System" Then some codes comes.....When the below image comes the monitor losts graphics and comes a blank black screen and after some some seconds monitor power goes off. [ This happens so fast, So I captured this picture using camera shutter speed ] Here is the example: Information About My Bios Setting: Secure Boot: Disabled. vt-d: Disabled. SATA Mode: ACHI Boot Device: Legacy Only DMVT: 128MB [i can't make it less] Intel Graphics: 64MB Info about USB-Boot-Installer: Usb: 2.0 8GB Size OSX Version: 10.11 Now what can I do? Please help me....I'm waiting for your responses. [Note: I'm not much expert in this process] This is my efi folder: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4u5uiV50s79NVEyS3lDNS0wVWM&usp=sharing [ You can download it and check, if there's anything wrong, You can correct it and upload me back ]
  22. Hello Everybody First, thank you so much! This community is great -helped a lot to get our system up and running! But there are still some problems, especially with graphics... Our Setup: - Gigabyte X99 UD5 Wifi - Intel i7 5930k - EVGA GTX 980 Ti - Corsair Vengeance DDR4 4x8 GB 2400MHz RAM - Kingston 480 GB SSD - Be Quiet Straight Power 10 800W Power Supply Bootloader: Clover EFI Bootflags in config.plist: npci=0x2000 kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1 SMBIOS: iMac 14.2 Kexts: FakeSMC.kext VoodooTSCSync.kext AppelIntelE1000e.kext Installed Drivers: voodooHDA for Audio Actually everything's working except of Wifi, Bluetooth. Also we get 4k Output from our Graphics Card with the newest Nvidia Webdriver: 346.02.03f04 build 14F1509 But when we are running some Benchmarks with Cinebench OpenGL we only get framerates around 40-50fps and only 30% workload, which isn't really acceptable for that graphics card (with Windows 10 we got 150fps). Another issue is, that on every startup it seems that it won't load the Nvidia Web Drivers by default, but nothing really changes when switching to it. So maybe it's a bug of visual presentation? Have you guys any idea how to fix that and get full performance of it? Is there any chance to get new web-drivers under Yosemite that might support the GTX980 Ti better? Or is the only solution to try it under El Capitan? Has anyone full performance with the EVGA GTX 980 Ti under Yosemite? Any help appreciated! Greetings from Austria
  23. Apples current updates, presumably security, but it just dumps several on me and installs at reboot without me being a willing participant... At any rate, be prepared to mount your disk and remove AppleTYMCDriver.kext from your System\Library\Extensions folder. Simple fix as long as you have another bootable access. I am not going to be so quick to let my SL get an update this way. It is stable and I don't want it messed with. Hoping it helps... Le Frog as a footnote, I also reinstalled my kernel. Not sure it was replaced, but taking no risks...
  24. Hey guys, I'm new to this ans this is my first post... I have never had to post anything before, I always found the solution myself. But this time, I seriously need some help. My cousin has a Macbook Pro 2015 running El Capitan on it. So we were following step by step every single thing we saw in this youtube video : We got to the point where we had to boot from the USB. Everything was working perfectly. I had the apple logo, progress bar was going smoothly until it filled completely. And then I waited... And waited... And waited... nothing. Decided to try verbose mode. Got this : "com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (org.ntp.sntp.117) 《Warning》: Service exited with abnormal code: 255" So... started doing what I do best.. Googling! I found SO MANY THINGS. Tried moving my kexts, tried putting some stuff in the boot args, so many things... now I'm just lost. It's an intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM, intel HD graphics, so basically all intel... Should work, no?
  25. Hey guys, I am looking to build a Skylake hackintosh for some minor video editing work and for using it as my primary PC. Ideally, I would have waited for at least 2-3 more months for Hackintosh to be more stable on Skylake, but due to my serious back issues, I need to replace my old 2011 Mac Mini right away on my standing desk. Build: CPU: Intel Core i5 6400 Mobo: Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 5 RAM : 8GB Kingston or Corsair DDR4 GPU: AMD R9 270X Questions: 1) Any thoughts on the Motherboard? I understand the UD5 mobo from Gigabyte is more popular, but that is not available in my country (India). How about Asus Z170 Pro? 2) I currently use the Apple Keyboard and Bluetooth speakers. What are my options in this regard? Will a normal Bluetooth dongle work? I understand that there is a Broadcom Wi-Fi/BT chip used inside the Mac Pro that I can buy separately, but it is exorbitantly expensive. 3) I have a dual monitor setup. Will Hackintosh work with the setup? Or am I going to face any issues? 4) Which GPU should I buy? I am not going to do any kind of gaming. Intel's onboard GPU does not work with Skylake so thats the only reason I am buying a GPU. I have read in the forums that AMD GPUs are better than Nvidia for FCP, but from what I have seen, low-end AMD GPUs don't work on El Cap. I would like to save a few bucks here, and would preferably go for a cheaper GPU (or something even lower end that works well under El Cap). Anything else that I should be aware of?
