  1. ****************************************************************************************************************************** IF YOU WANT A RAW COPY (THAT INCLUDES ACTUAL FORMATTING) OF THIS UNFINISHED GUIDE, ASK ME THROUGH PRIVATE MESSAGE, THEN MODIFY IT AND SEND IT BACK TO ME THROUGH PRIVATE MESSAGE, IT'LL BE A PLEASURE TO UPDATE IT, BUT I'M NOT ACTIVE HERE ANYMORE -- ALSO, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO HAVE THIS THREAD'S OWNERSHIP CHANGED AND WANT TO OWN IT, LET ME KNOW HOW TO PROCEED AS I DO NOT WISH TO KEEP IT FOR ME, THANKS! ****************************************************************************************************************************** Hi, I'm starting this new topic in the hope to, progessively, create a guide for a vanilla (as much as possible) OS X Installation on Z400/Z600/Z800 Workstations. I invite you to participate in the comments so that this topic becomes an easy-to-follow guide. The idea of doing this emerged from information exchanged with other members (proteinshake, MacPeet, zhangtemplar, MacUser2525, nitelava & apav) in topic titled "Fix my HP! Just a few random DSDT-edits to improve your HacMac experience." originally created by proteinshake. Main goals of this guide Explain manual procedures; Avoid "magical" utilities, but don't ignore them (they can sometimes be time/life savers); Make you become independent & aware of the inner mechanics of creating a functional Hackintosh, so that you can repeat & adapt those procedures for future hackintosh projects. *** AS THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS TOPIC, I WILL NEED SOME HELP TO GATHER ACCURATE INFORMATION *** HELP NEEDED, PLEASE READ THIS SECTION, THANKS! As I only own a Z400 Workstation, I'd need you (those who own Z600 and Z800 Workstations) to send me your lspci output. To do so, you have 2 options: Boot with a Linux LiveCD (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post); If you already have an OSX version installed, you'll need to install lspci (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post). Type the following command : lspci -nnvv >~/Desktop/lspci-nnvv_output.txt If you are using Linux, please also type this command (before creating the following, make sure you updated your BIOS to v03.57) : sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml OR: sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml (whichever works for you) Copy those files to a USB flash drive, send them to yourself by email or whatever other method you want. Then, reply to this topic mentionning which workstation you have, and attach the file(s) created above. ALSO, if you got Clover to boot your Z400 / Z600 / Z800 Worktation, PLEASE send us your config.plist so that we can have a starting point. I'm trying to switch from Chameleon to Clover, but I'm still unable to fix a Kernel Panic I have; I will report it with a screenshot soon in the comments, maybe some of you might know why I get it. Requirements Another Mac or Hackintosh machine; 8GB+ USB flash drive; BIOS updated to latest version (v03.57, 2013-09-20 release, found HERE); This is mandatory for 2 reasons : patched DSDT files included in this guide will not work (properly) if you use a different BIOS version; that latest BIOS version fixes possible erratic behaviours with Xeon 3600 & 5600 CPU series. Z400/Z600/Z800 specific files (see Z400/Z600/Z800 specific information sections further below). BIOS setup instructions (eventually, there will be screenshots) You must set your hard drive controller to AHCI+RAID mode, else you won't be able to use your SATA devices. ... Generic instructions (for all downloads/credits, see Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links & All attached files sections at the bottom of this post) Get a copy of Yosemite Installer from the AppStore; Create a Yosemite boot DVD or USB (USB recommended); Partition & format the USB Flash Drive : Put your USB Flash Drive in a USB port; Open Disk Utility; Select your USB Flash Drive disk in the left pane; Click on the "Partition" tab in the right pane; Change "Partition Scheme" to 1; Click on "Options" at the bottom; Make sur you select GUID (first one) and click on OK; Give it a name, let's say Yosemite-Installer for the sake of this guide; Change "Format" to "Extended Mac OS (journaled)" (AFTER THIS STEP, YOU'LL ERASE YOUR USB Flash Drive, so make a backup first if you have important data on it!); Click on "Apply"; Create a USB Flash Drive with Yosemite Installer on it; Open Terminal; Copy/Paste the following command (make sure to verify the path names as they might differ slightly on your setup) - it will ask for your user password to elevate the command at root permission level : sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/YosemiteInstaller --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction Wait until it's completed (takes about 20 minutes, depending on your setup and USB speed); Into your volume's /System/Library/Extensions folder, copy the following kernel extensions (kext) : AHCIPortInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext.zip & IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext.zip - Those extensions make OS X detect your SATA controller. You'll get the "Waiting for root device..." message if you don't install those. (Couldn't yet find official page nor original thread for those, please let me know if you found it - credits seem to go to Micky1979); FakeSMC_v6.16.1372_netkas.kext.zip - emulates Apple's SMC chip found on Apple motherboards; NullCPUPowerManagement_v1.0.0d2_tgwbd.kext.zip - prevents kernel panic of genuine Apple Power Management; (optional for the install disk, this is to get sound working) VoodooHDA_v2.87.kext.zip (autumnrain, slice2009) - The file attached here is version 2.87 with a tweaked Info.plist to fix noise & volume issues for our workstations. According to my tests, HDADisabler kext is not needed (probably because original unpatched AppleHDA won't detect our Realtek ALC262 chipset). Now, let's rebuild that target volume's kernel cache with the following command : kextcache -f -update-volume /Volumes/YosemiteInstall Create the Extra folder on your Yosemite's install disk : mkdir -p /Volumes/YosemiteInstaller/Extra Install a bootloader Chameleon ...

  2. Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VMware Workstation on a Windows Host I wanted to make a simple guide on how to create a vanilla OS X El Capitan virtual machine running on a Windows host. The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh. There are many guides and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMWare disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there…. I’ve gathered info for this guide from various threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum eg Workstation 11/12, Player 7/12, Fusion 7/8 and ESXi 6 Mac OS X Unlocker 2 by @Donk How to Install OS X 10.x from Snow Leopard to El Capitan in VMware Workstation 10/12, Player 6/8 or ESXi 5/6 by @MSOK HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware Credit and thanks to @Donk, @Albert Nietsnie and @MSOK for all their hard work in creating and testing the VMware Unlocker program. Requirements Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X) 4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X) Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine VMware Workstation 12 or later VMware Unlocker 2.0.7 or later Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#41 16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack 1. On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder. 2. Unmount any attached install image/InstallESD.dmg (if currently mounted) by rebooting the system or running the hdiutil unmount command in terminal eg 3. Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes…. 4. Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script: cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 5. At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later. Updates: @shela has created an ISO generating script compatible with OS X 10.6-10.12: create_osx_iso post #362. See post#30 for macOS_iso_cim.tool script to create ISO for macOS 10.13+ using Apple's createinstallmedia utility. Install and Patch VMware Workstation 12 on your PC 1. Download and install VMWare Workstation Player 12 or later 2. Download and extract Unlocker 2.0.7 or later to your USB stick… 3. Run the win-install.cmd as administrator by right clicking the file in Windows explorer or run it from an Administrative Command Prompt. Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine 1. Double click on the VMware Workstation 12 Player icon on your desktop and click “Create a New Virtual Machine”. Choose “I will install the operating system later” at the How will you install screen…. 2. Select Apple Mac OS X as the Guest operating system and OS X 10.11 as the version. By default, an OS X 10.11 folder will be created in your Documents\Virtual Machines folder. 3. Under Specify Disk Capacity, you can leave the default 40GB or set a larger value. I personally store the virtual disk as a single file. Click Finish and you will see OS X 10.11 on the Main Screen of Workstation 12. 4. Next, we need to edit the virtual machine settings to map the virtual SATA CD/DVD drive to the El Capitan installation iso we created earlier. 5. To prevent the virtual machine from crashing in Windows, the virtualHW.version set in the vmx configuration file needs to be changed from 12 to 10 (alternatively, the line smc.version = "0" can be added to the file). The OS X 10.11.vmx file can be edited with the WordPad program (navigate to the OS X 10.11 virtual machine folder with Windows Explorer and right click on the file to open in WordPad). 6. For HW10, set USB compatibility to USB 2.0, otherwise your mouse and keyboard might not work in the virtual machine. 7. Finally click “Play virtual machine” Installation of El Capitan Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer: 1. Select language, agree to legal terms 2. Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended. I’ve named the drive Macintosh HD but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan. 3. Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on. 4. After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete and the VM will automatically reboot… 5. At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout. You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish… 6. Create a User Account and select your Time Zone. You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple…. 7. Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop. You should eject the Installation iso now by right clicking and selecting “Eject OS X Base System”. This will allow you to install VMware Tools…. 8. After rebooting, the VM can now be resized or run at full screen resolution. Audio and network/internet should also work OOB. SMBIOS Customization and iMessage Vars To make the Virtual Machine more "Mac like", you can edit the vmx file to add unique identifiers from a real Mac's SMBIOS - eg for an iMac 11,3 SMBIOS, you can enter the following lines.... smbios.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id = "Mac-F2238BAE" hw.model.reflectHost = "FALSE" hw.model = "iMac11,3" serialNumber.reflectHost = "FALSE" serialNumber = "W80#######6" Refer How to spoof real Mac in VMware - Multi-booting and Virtualisation. The critical variables for iMessage/Facetime activation are MLB & ROM. By default, VMware "reflects" the host's MLB and ROM since it assumes you are running the OSX guest on a real Mac host - see post#42 by @Donk. If the host is a Windows PC, the following lines need to be added to the vmx file (requires virtualHW.version 12 and smc.version = "0").... efi.nvram.var.ROM.reflectHost = "FALSE" efi.nvram.var.MLB.reflectHost = "FALSE" system-id.enable = "TRUE" and the MLB, ROM and optionally system-id entered manually eg efi.nvram.var.MLB = "W80######BA1A" (MLB can be 13 or 17 characters long, alphanumeric string) efi.nvram.var.ROM = "<=>?@A" (ROM is entered here as a 6 character ASCII string) uuid.bios = "## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##-## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##" <---Optional (if you want to inject a given system-id hexadecimal value) Note the output for ROM from imessage_debug is a 12 character hexadecimal that needs to be entered here as a 6 character ASCII string eg using an Hex to ASCII converter we find that "3c3d3e3f4041" hex is equivalent to "<=>?@A". Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite . Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware. With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5... Enjoy Update for macOS 10.12 Sierra The above settings still work for macOS Sierra after upgrading to VMware Workstation 12.5 and unlocker 2.0.8 - see post #13. Update for macOS 10.13 High Sierra and 10.14 Mojave See post#30 for macOS_iso_cim.tool script to create ISO for macOS using Apple's createinstallmedia utility. Post#41 describes how to build "Install macOS ******.app" on the fly from installer files downloaded beforehand in /SharedSupport folder. Update for macOS 10.15beta Catalina See post Update for macOS Catalina 10.15beta CECI.zip CYI.tool.zip CMI.tool.zip
  3. Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh. There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there…. I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg @colt2 HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware @dsmccombs comment on faking Ivybridge Processor @E:V:A http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55572430&postcount=6 @Tech Reviews video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7X07U63lwg. VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX Requirements Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X) 4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X) Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34 Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75 16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack 1. On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder. 2. Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes. Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete. 3. Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script: cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4. At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later. Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox 1. Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM. 2. Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version. I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next... 3. Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next. 4. Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button. 5. For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare. Click next... 6. For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space). 7. On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger. When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI. 8. Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings.... a. On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?) b. On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2 c. On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB d. On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier... e. Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings. Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac 1. From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 2. Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter> after each line. Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...

Optional- For some host systems eg those with Haswell and newer CPUs, you might have to spoof an older CPU to avoid VirtualBox errors. You can try from one of the following if this happens: To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4. Close the command prompt window. Installation of El Capitan We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine.... Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer: 1. Select language, agree to legal terms 2. Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended. I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan. 3. Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on. 4. After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete. At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive. The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive. 5. At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout. You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish… 6. Create a User Account and select your Time Zone. You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple…. 7. Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop. 8. Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted. Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). Customization with VBoxManage 1. You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt: cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively. Update: For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed... VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution) eg VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2. Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html. Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite . Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware. With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5... Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above). Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free . UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51. UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365: For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73. UPDATE macOS Mojave 18A391: For macOS Mojave or High Sierra, use macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 4 of thread. UPDATE macOS Catalina Beta DP3_19A501i: For Catalina, @jpz4085 has made an automated batch file to create a Catalina VM in Windows with iMac 14,2 SMBIOS. You can still use my macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 5 to make an installer ISO to attach to the VM. Good luck and enjoy CECI.tool.zip CYI.tool.zip CMI.tool.zip
  4. With the release of El Capitan, the script to create a Bootable ISO for VMware of Mavericks and Yosemite does not seem to work anymore on the El Capitan official release. The ISO simply does not boot. Below is what I found that worked. Since I've been looking for this for a couple of days, I figured I'd share it. - Enjoy! #!/bin/bash # Mount the installer image hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg -noverify -nobrowse -mountpoint /Volumes/install_app # Create the ElCapitan Blank ISO Image of 7316mb with a Single Partition - Apple Partition Map hdiutil create -o /tmp/ElCapitan.cdr -size 7316m -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J # Mount the ElCapitan Blank ISO Image hdiutil attach /tmp/ElCapitan.cdr.dmg -noverify -nobrowse -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build # Restore the Base System into the ElCapitan Blank ISO Image asr restore -source /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.dmg -target /Volumes/install_build -noprompt -noverify -erase # Remove Package link and replace with actual files rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/ # Copy El Capitan installer dependencies cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/BaseSystem.chunklist cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/BaseSystem.dmg # Unmount the installer image hdiutil detach /Volumes/install_app # Unmount the ElCapitan ISO Image hdiutil detach /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/ # Convert the ElCapitan ISO Image to ISO/CD master (Optional) hdiutil convert /tmp/ElCapitan.cdr.dmg -format UDTO -o /tmp/ElCapitan.iso # Rename the ElCapitan ISO Image and move it to the desktop mv /tmp/ElCapitan.iso.cdr ~/Desktop/ElCapitan.iso

  7. ASUS N550JV I'd been working on this computer since of the beginning of 2014 and I can say that OS X is pretty stable on it with El Capitan 10.11.4 [EDIT] Some news about Sierra Well... In June 2017 I finally cross the line and I bought the MacBook Pro 14,3 dropping my N550JV, that's why I'm not gonna help you with Sierra. However, since Apple hardware seems to be buggy sometimes (or bad luck ?), my MacBook Pro motherboard died after only 3 months. Not so good for a 3000€ laptop... Student, but also freelance web developper, I need my (working) laptop everyday. But Apple seems to considerate that paying a product 3000€ is not enough to get a free replacement device ASAP when a failure happens. The warranty will take the motherboard replacement fees, but my MacBook won't be available during 6 or 7 days : what a loss of income ! That's why I told the vendor that I have no choice but returning to Hackintosh to be able to work. And I decided to try to boot my Time Machine backup on my N550JV. After some ajustements, it worked and I'm now running my MacBook image on the N550JV. I fixed QE/CI, touchpad and wireless, but I still miss the TouchBar... I have no time to explain the steps to make it work but you can find the clover folder I used to run 10.12.6 right here. You just have to install the updated versions of BrcmPatchRam and VoodooHDA in /S/L/E to have Bluetooth and Audio. This work is dirty but I hope it will help you to get Sierra running on the N550JV.

  10. This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC. It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) : Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection. Prerequisites Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer” Procedure 1. Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag 2. Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line. The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System".... sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3. Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info” 4. Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume” 5. Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist. NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages 6. Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel 7. Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder. 8. Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel….. sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g. 9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume 10. Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI.... Post Install The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts. In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer: 1. Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag 2. Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel 3. Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder 4. Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel. In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else... sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume. This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite). 6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan! Other links The All-In-One Guide to Vanilla OS X for beginners Updates for Sierra and High Sierra Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan. Instructions: 1. Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder. 2. Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3. Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem 4. Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop. macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.

  11. Hello i start a new post, i have a problem with my USB 3.0 ports, impossible to mount USB 3.0 key/drive on USB 3.0, but USB 2.0 key/drive can mount on 3.0 ports. I try to follow this guide : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/ but in 2b. impossible to find XHC1 in my dsdt so impossible to finish the tutorial, but think that only for usb 3.0 INTEL ports. I listen that for some people, genericUSBXHCI.kext work under El Capitan 10.11.3 for repair USB 3.0, for me not. For my smbios i use iMac 14,2 I link my config.plist for Clover, my dsdt, my ioreg and a screen of USB preferences. So if someone can help me for fixing that USB 3.0 ports... Thank you.

  12. I have a glitch on the top and bottom of my screen when I'm booting up. It's between the apple logo and the login screen. It goes past pretty quickly and then turns into the common loading bar on the bottom of the screen problem, before everything works correctly at the user login screen. I've searched around some for a fix but couldn't find anything for this particular issue. I found some fixes for glitching on integrated graphics but nothing for a dedicated nvidia gpu with multiple monitors. I have monitors attached as DVI and HDMI. I'm on the latest web drivers but this has been an issue since upgrading ot el cap. It's a small issues, but any help, suggestions, or pointing me in the right direction would be very much appreciated. My specs are in my signature.

  16. Hey guys. I've been having some trouble getting clover to boot the El Capitan installer from my USB. Now despite the views of TonyMac on this forum, I'll just disclose that I was following this guide written by him to get myself going. http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-desktop-guides/172672-[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]-install-os-x-el-capitan-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html If someone has a better or preferred set of instructions, please do send them my way. Basically, when I attempt to boot the installer, the picture attached shows the results. Not too sure about the boot flags I should be using with clover, but I'll attach my specs to hopefully help you help me. CPU: Intel i5-4690k MoBo: MSI H97 Gaming 3 GPU: MSI R9 390x HDD: Sandisk 128GB SSD Thanks much. P.S Trying to boot with -x just adds Safe Boot Enabled to the bottom of the pictured results. Still the hangup, though.

  18. After weeks of digging, I've found a partial solution for the USB problem of my hack. No guide I've found worked so far, injectors or fake kexts made the problem even bigger in every case. So I concentrated on getting the DSDT as correct as possible. My personal DSDT does only apply to a few people out there I know, but may be used as a helpful reference. For example I renamed XHC to XHC1 (so that OS X can find it) removed _PWR arguments from EHCI, XHC1 and HDEF to make sleep working (resulted in a new wake-problem ). What is working with the attached DSDT and what not : Ports detected: 2 of 2 USB 3 on the front, 2 of 4 USB rear ports, 2 of 2 USB 2 rear ports USB 2 devices not recognized when plugged into USB 3 ports Sleep is working, however, wake up works only when power button is pressed. I'm using iMac14,2 SMBIOS for now. Still looking for alternatives that fit my pc better. Does anybody has any advice or a possible DSDT fix regarding the wake / sleep problem? Thanks in advance for all the effort !!! DSDT.aml.zip

  20. Hello guys. I am setting up my first Hackintosh. Here are the specs: Mobo: Adlink M-342 with AMI Aptio 4 UEFI Intel i3 2120 SandyBridge 4GB RAM 500 GB SeaGate HDD So, here's the issue. The first part of the installation process works perfectly. At the end of the process, I am asked to perform a restart. I do that, it boots back to Clover. I select the HFS partition where I installed OSx, it loads for a while and then the screen goes blank. The only way I found so far to be able to boot to OSx is to set a FakeID in Clover's Graphics Injection menu. The only FakeID that works is this one: 0x041680862 Which is not even a real FakeID. There is no other way, at the moment, to boot to OSx but this one, which is far from a perfect solution (the screen flickers every now and then and I cannot select resolutions different from 1024x768). I really need help on this. HD4600 is known to be fully compatible with OSx, so nobody else has ever had this issue before (apparently). Thanks for your help.

  22. Buenas a todos/as! Soy nuevo en el foro, este es mi primer tema. Hace una semana pude hacer upgrade de hardware y eso me dio pie para armarme mi primera Hackintosh! Paso antes que nada a describirles mi Hard: CPU: i5 4690k MB: Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 3 (BIOS F7) RAM: Kingston 10GB DDR3 1333 HD: Western Digital 320gb VGA: Nvidia GTX 970 OC 4GB PSU: Coolermaster GX 750 Como se imaginaran al ser mi primera vez, no tengo idea de comandos, ni kexts, etc etc... Sin embargo logre llegar a instalar OSX El Capitan 10.11.5 casi completamente. Me guie por varios tutoriales. La configuración de hard, la elegí en base a las guías de Tony, y el tutoríal de instalación del canal Cat&Andrew, ese video puntualmente. Solo que yo NO use la opción Inject Nvidia, ni tampoco instale el SMBios, después les explico donde lo instale. Después de instalar el OSX, vi por foros que para instalar el driver de mi gtx970, debía descargar el web driver para 10.11.5, apagar la pc, sacar la placa de video, instalar al driver sin la placa y cuando lo instale, recién apague la pc, conectar la placa de video y recién ahí arrancar el sistema. Hice "EXACTAMENTE ESO". Al momento de iniciar, terminaba de cargar el logo de apple y se reiniciaba la pc, y así indefinidamente, le puse el bootflag nv_disable=1 y ahí entro y la reconocia a la placa todo bien, entonces ahí instalo el SMBios "iMac (15,1) - i7-4790k (27 inch Retina)" este ultimo lo hizo ya con clover desde el archivo "config.plist" que esta dentro de la partición EFI al montarla con clover, guardo los cambios, reinicio y ahí ya entraba con la gtx970 a full jajaja, después de eso vi que decían que era mas compatible el SMBios "iMac (14,2) - i5-4670/i7-4771 (Hashwell)" así que instale ese, reinicie y entro sin problemas así que lo deje ahí nomas ya. En fin, después de instalar todo esto me doy cuenta que no tengo audio, pero yo SI había instalado con El .######., mi driver de audio que es el "ALC1150", sin embargo no tenia audio ni me aparecía en Preferencias de Sistema para cambiar el dispositivo de salida. Desde ahí comenze a buscar como instalar el driver de audio, y encontré estos archivos: corri "audio_codecdetect_v1.6-3.command" y me decía que no detectaba dispositivos de sonido, que revise si estaba instalado y habilitado en la Bios, y eso esta todo OK, después intente instalar por Clover (montando la partición EFI) "audio_cloverALC-110_v1.0r10.command" pero me da error y comienza a decirme "entry does not exist" infinitamente sin hacer nada mas. Y por ultimo instale "audio_realtekALC-110_v1.0o1.command" sin abrir Clover, ni montar la partición EFI, y después copie dentro de la carpeta EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.11, los archivos que se descomprimen al instalar el "audio_realtekALC-110_v1.0o1.command" que se llaman: "AppleHDA-orig.kext" y "AppleHDA.kext" Sin resultado positivo todavía.. Y ya hoy a la mañana encontré la Guía del amigo Trapezita (nose como etiquetarlo jajaja)... Pero tampoco pude solucionarlo Ya para terminar, como no podia solucionar el tema del audio, me pase a ver como podía cambiar la resolución de mi monitor (TV LCD 32" Full HD) que lo tengo conectado por cable VGA y me daba como máximo una resolución de 1600x1200 y no podía ponerlo a 1920x1080. Sin instalar nada le conecte un cable HDMI y ahí si podía cambiar la resolución a 1080p, pero se veía muy feo, estaba a 1080p con un refresco de 60 hercios pero se veía como si tuviera una refresco de 25 hercios, todo saturado y como con dientes de sierra en todas las lineas. Este problema ya lo tenia en Windows, probé con otros cables HDMI, cambiando drivers y nada... al final lo solucione usando el cable VGA, por eso hizo lo mismo en OSX... Entonces buscando encontre la app SwitchResX4, que es de pago, pero baje la versión de prueba y con eso pude cambiar a 1080p por cable VGA, pero después de eso tengo el problema que cada vez que enciendo la pc o reinicio para hacer efectivo el cambio de la instalación de alguna app del AppStore por ejemplo, la pc cuando termina la carga del logo se reinicia, y así 2, 3 o hasta 4 veces máximo. y ahí entra al sistema pero mostrándome un aviso de que el sistema se apago por un problema . Suponiendo que SwitchResX4 era el problema lo borre de la carpeta de descargas y del escritorio, porque no se instalo, sino que se ejecuto y abrio una carpeta en el escritorio con una app que decía SwitchResX4 Panel... Eso es lo que borre, pero después de borrarlo, sigo con el mismo problema al iniciar la pc, pero la pc quedo en 1920x1080 a pesar de que en preferencias del sistema, en el apartado de pantalla, no me aparece la resolución para 1080p, y como titulo de la ventana dice así: IMAGEN Bueno eso seria todo jajaja... Perdón por ser muy extenso pero, no entiendo mucho del tema y para ser lo mas claro posible lo hago así. Espero puedan ayudarme desde ya muchas gracias!
  23. Hey all, I recently just finished my first ever Hackintosh build and am extremely happy with it apart from one major issue.. The specs: Intel Core Skylake Processor i5-6500 Gigabyte H170N-WI-FI Motherboard Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16 GB Kit (8 GB x 2) DDR4 2400 Corsair 550W CS550M Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB Broadcom BCM94352Z DW1560 Wireless-AC 867M WiFi Bluetooth 4.0 NGFF M.2 Card (being shipped) OSX El Capitan (not sierra) NOTE: I'm using integrated GFX as I don't want to spend anymore just yet on a GPU but maybe in the near future! I followed ammulder's guide on installing El Capitan and everything is working apart from my Display Ports. I have a HDMI plugged in (top HDMI port on mobo) and works fine it's just when I have my other monitor hooked up using either the other HDMI provided or DVI port I get a complete blank display and my other monitor is still working as normal. I tried other guides, few different tweaks and even hotplugging but that doesn't seem to work. I also tried taking the HDMI out of the working port and inserting it into another HDMI or DVI and that doesn't seem to work either. Please help me as I would highly appreciate it and would love to be using this amazing build with 2 monitors instead of 1. Regards, Emphasising
  24. Currently trying to get OS X on my HP Pavilion 15-p200 Series. Have an i3-5010U, a Broadwell chip with HD 5500 Graphics. No nVidia or AMD graphics cards, just built in. Should be able to run OS X? But I'm pretty stuck. Clover doesn't want to run anything - black screens after choosing device. Chimera loads kernel, but gives ACPI errors. Think I need a kernel patched for Broadwell CPUs? Currently using one copied over from my Mac Mini (2012, i5) since El Capitan doesn't come with one. Edit: Yosemite 10.10.3 kernel Any ideas?

    Recuperato laptop confido in aiuto

    Buonasera a tutti gli insanely amici... un particolare saluto a gengik84, e naturalmente a Jolly. Riecconi dopo un periodo in cui mi sono dovuta spostare parecchio per lavoro. Sono stata anche a Pisa (dalle parti di gengik credo), poi a Bologna per la presentazione di una conferenza sul gioco d'azzardo (dove ho preparato una presentazione per una associazione di divulgazione in Prezi). Nel frattempo mio padre è riuscito a recuperare gli oggetti che mi avevano rubato a Salerno. Ha recuperato anche il mio amatissimo hp envy. Solo che purtroppo lo hanno formattato istallandoci windo 7. Mi sono scimunita a reinstallare Capitan come in precedenza, ma forse commetto qualche errore e non va.
