  1. I have a working Niresh Yosemite 10.10.5 install on my PC with Clover UEFI as the bootloader. I'd like to update it to El Capitan if possible. I've tried to do it through the Install El Capitan update app as I heard that it works as long as you have Clover. The program worked fine but when I try to boot into the Installer through Clover, I get the black Apple screen (without loading bar) followed by a black screen with a circle and a slash through it. I booted in verbose and got a message saying something about it not being able to boot. Any suggestions or other ways to upgrade to El Capitan?

  2. Hello Everyone, I'm new to hackintoshing, I have set my hackintosh up clearly in my Sony Vaio SFV15219SA as I've seen that the native Bluetooth and WIFI aren't going to work. So I bought a USB Wifi TP-LINK WN727N V4 with Chipset MTK7610U (RT2860) but I couldn't make it work. Methods I've come up with are : -BearExtender but wirelessutility is not showing after keeping on clicking. -installing a RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext using kext wizard or kext utility -Dlink DWA 140 Wireless utility is not showing any driver -Edited the info.plist of the Kext file to get my vendor ID and hardware id to work but with no luck. Any help here? rather than that the whole OS is working perfectly.

    Audio problem in ALC662

    I am new to hackintosh and after trying out every possible fix for making sound work in ALC662, I am not able to fix it. I am on el capitan 10.11. If anyone can give me a modified kext and tell me which way exactly should i follow to install it, then it would be great.
  4. Good day everyone! Ever since I installed OS X El Capitan on my machine, I've been getting a very odd problem where the Wi-Fi connectivity dies out after a random amount minutes of watching Netflix or YouTube. Once, it took two hours for this to happen, but the day after, it took two minutes. So far, the only way I've found to fix the problem is by restarting the router which takes a couple of minutes and disconnects the whole house. My wireless card is a TP-Link N900 which has worked without this error before. Also note, that I am a victim of the ATHR: unknown locale: 21 error, but I have applied the working fix. The machine is running OS X El Capitan 10.11.4, but I just updated and am testing the problem. Other than this problem, the machine is quite flawless in performance Computer Specifications - Intel Core i5-4440 - Corsair Vengeance (2)8GB 1600MHz RAM - EVGA GTX 970SC 4GB (running nVidia Web Drivers) - ASUS B85-E/CSM Motherboard - TP-Link N900 If you need it, here's the system report page under Wi-Fi: Software Versions: CoreWLAN: 11.0 (1101.20) CoreWLANKit: 11.0 (1101.20) Menu Extra: 11.0 (1102.32) System Information: 11.0 (1100.1) IO80211 Family: 11.0.1 (1101.24) Diagnostics: 5.0 (500.83) AirPort Utility: 6.3.6 (636.5) Interfaces: en0: Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x8F) Firmware Version: Atheros 9380: MAC Address: c4:6e:1f:1f:a5:36 Locale: ETSI Country Code: Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g/n Supported Channels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64 Wake On Wireless: Supported AirDrop: Supported Status: Connected Current Network Information: *connected wifi network*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 48:5d:36:3a:34:44 Channel: 1 Country Code: Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -67 dBm / -89 dBm Transmit Rate: 195 MCS Index: 22 Other Local Wi-Fi Networks: *wifi network name*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 5c:b9:01:2a:05:cc Channel: 1 Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -72 dBm / -96 dBm *wifi network name*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 6e:e8:f1:e0:9f:70 Channel: 11 Country Code: US Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -84 dBm / -96 dBm *wifi network name*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 6c:70:9f:e0:f1:e8 Channel: 11 Country Code: US Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -80 dBm / -96 dBm
  5. Hello, On my Asus M51AC, I have Windows 10 and El Capitan installed on my 840 Evo SSD with Clover. I can boot in El Capitan perfectly, but if I use the Windows entry from clover, then it boots normally even if I hibernated. As I use hibernation (in Windows) very often, if I want to boot on Windows, I need to enter the BIOS to choose the standard Windows Boot Manager EFI entry in the boot menu list. Is there something special to do with the Windows entry in the config.plist file to make it work with hibernation? Thanks
  6. Newb here, but here we go, need some help from guys who know what they are doing. Trying to install El Capitan on my first ever "Hackintosh" Specs are: ASUS Maximus VII Formula Z97, Intel Core i7-4790k, 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws RAM, MSI Lightning GTX 770 2GB, 1050 Watt EVGA GS PSU, NZXT H440 Case I have made a USB Drive with Terminal (createinstallmedia) of El Capitan on an 8GB Flash Drive which was SUCCESSFUL. I am prepared to install Clover Bootloader but am overwhelmed by the options. Can anyone give me any advice on what options to select under "Customize" for my specific build? I heard I need a DSDT.aml file? How do I make one of those for my build? Also, based on my specs, what kexts and Boot Args would you guys recommend to help me get to the installer and post install? Thanks for the consideration.
  7. Hi everyone, I managed to create a Clover Legacy UEFI bootloader USB key with a patched DSDT and SSDT. It seems to be running just fine right now (as I am typing this). On the actual system volume, I am booting with Chameleon, so I am using the USB to test. I have the system running on a 2302 Patched Bios, and power management seems to be working as far as the Intel Power Gadget is showing me. Essentially, everything is working except for audio (no need, I have a wireless USB headset I use for that anyways). I am having trouble trying to get it to work with just a UEFI bootloader, and not a legacy one. I would like to go to full UEFI mode if possible to streamline future updates and whatnot, and just to generally have a cleaner more vanilla install of the entire system. Anyways. Whenever I boot using the Legacy USB i get a "boot" message, then it shows "5" (that is the resolution profile it is selecting), and then it says "welcome to clover" and proceeds to show the disk launcher screen where I can select my volume to boot from. Whenever I boot using the UEFI USB i get no message at all, it goes straight to a black screen with a FLASHING cursor on the top left. I proceeded to copy CLOVERX64.EFI to the root of the EFI volume and rename it to SHELLX64.EFI as instructed by some guides on this specific mobo. When booting using that, I get a black screen with a SOLID cursor on the top left (and what seems like an odd resolution that it is being displayed at, as well). It never progresses from that point, and does not show the volume selection menu. I was wondering if it is at all possible to get the Asus P8P67 Deluxe Rev B3.0 @ 2302 patched bios (confirmed patched bios is working) with UEFI only. The 2302 bios does not have CSM or any option to do UEFI/Legacy Hybrid or UEFI only booting- so I cannot turn those off/change them.
  8. Hello, I just installed el Capitan on my computer with the utility and I wanted to update Clover (like I did when i had Yosemite) to make the sound work in HDMI, fix shutdown issue and the inability to close my DVD player. But now OS X can't boot anymore...

    mac pro geforce 8800 GTS

    Been a while since me and a pal managed to turn a couple of dell mini 9s into leopard netbooks and then kill them with 10.5.8 and thus it's so good to see there is still a thriving community here ... hoping you can help me Does anyone know if your group's nvidia webdriver updater will successfully flash the ROM in the non-approved (by Apple!) 8800 GTS (the GT was approved, but not the GTS) - so it will work in a mac pro 3,1 with El Capitan ? (by 'work' I mean 100% fully work - not just login screen but all boot screen options) May seem an odd thing to do but amongst my other projects keeping this behemoth (3,1 intel xeon 8 core 8GB RAM 2008/9) mac pro with bootcamp running as something more than just a home NAS (4x4TB drives in the bays) and file server is high up my list and I am never going to be able to stump up the cash for an apple $$$ approved card Things I think I know, but suspect some folk here will have found a way around or know better; 1) without flashing, I will never get the options at boot, or be able to see SUDO or recovery options 2) I can use screen sharing / VNC viewer / Vine to remote into the mac at the login screen, and use startup disk prefs to switch between bootcamp and OSX, but not OSX DVDs on an external DVD over USB 3) I have been pointed at netkas but they seem to be down currently ... and when last up appear to be focused on flashing just the high end newer PC gaming cards (1GB VRAM and up) - this 8800 GTS is just a 320mb) Any info will be much appreciated, hate binning kit like this .... cheers Andy
  10. Laptop/Notebook :- HP Pavilion G6-2149TX System configuration :- Intel Core-i5 3210M 2.5 GHZ processor 6 GB 1600 MHZ RAM Intel HD 4000 + ATI Radeon HD 7670M (2 GB) graphics 750 GB HDD 15.6" 1366x768 display Was running Yosemite 10.10.1 (N{censored}) with working DSDT (RehabMan Laptop Patches) & Kexts, Following worked :- Intel HD 4000 graphics with QE/CL & Brightness fix (DSDT Patch) from RehabMan Sound Ethernet I did a clean install of El Capitan 10.11.1 (Downloaded from App Store & used U{censored}) on internal HDD (Only MAC OS is present, no other OSs). Internal Keyboard & TouchPad doesn't work in installer & Recovery. Restored a Time Machine backup of working Yosemite 10.10.1 that I made earlier, installed Clover, Essential CustoMac package, configured Clover plist & set SMBIOS to MacBookPro 9,2, injectIntel in Graphics, KernelLapic (as I coudn't boot without using BootArg "cpus=1"), RtVariables "CsrConfig=0x3". Sound & Ethernet works out-of-the-box (Maybe due to Yosemite Time Machine backup). Now, I must inject ATI & disable InjectIntel in Clover Bootloader in order to boot in to El Capitan. No QE/CL for ATI graphics though (Choppy Graphics), let alone Brightness fix. Intel HD 4000 shows up as "Display 4 MB" under "About MAC" & "System Report -> Graphics". Shutdown/Restart is also not working. I did try previously working DSDT (of Yosemite) in El Capitan using Clover config.plist, but, gives Panic due to something like ATI6000Controller (ATI GPU, maybe?). I had working SSDT in Yosemite for CPU Power Management but, CPU works better without it (Less CPU temp). But, with El Capitan, I don't think Kexts are being used/loaded into OS, especially NullCpuPowerManagement.kext (Fault of SIP, maybe?) I want to use Intel HD 4000 graphics natively (instead of ATI graphics by injection) with QE/CL & Brightness control, get CPU management by SMBIOS (using NCPM.kext) without using SSDT, Ability to use 3rd party Kexts, Working Shutdown/Restart Please help me to find solutions...
  11. Dear experts, I'm new to the mac world however have been using Mountain Lion in a VM (downloaded online). Right now, I want to install El Capitan in a VM on Workstation 11. What I have right now, Hardware :- - Dell Vostro 2420 running Win8.1 64 bit. - Intel core i5 3230M - 4 GB DDR3 RAM - Intel B75 express chipset - Intel HD4000 graphics - 500 GB WD HDD Software :- - Working Mountain Lion VM - El Capitan dmg/iso file downloaded from Mountain Lion. - El Capitan Bootable USB created from Mountain Lion - VMware Workstation 11 / 12. Could anyone help me on how to install El Capitan on, - VMware Workstation - On Dell Vostro 2420 laptop So far I've tried to search lot many forums, but what is see is that they use the pre-configured vm image in the videos. While I tried to use ISO image and boot, it shows a STOP/restricted sign. Tried adding setting like smc.version = "0" and disabling sound but to no avail. Greatly appreciate any help on this... Thanks.
  12. Hi there - I'm trying to install el capitan today on my vm workstation 12 pro (host is win 10). I've installed unlocker 2.0.7, I can see mac os x as a selection in my drop down. I prepared install iso with the below steps: 1. downloaded installation from appstore (on my macbook pro) 2. used "createinstallmedia" to create a bootable usb 3. used "dd" command line feature to create .iso image on my vmware workstation, I've created with "typical" settings with slight modification to 4 cores + 8G ram. Then added 'smc.version = "0" ' to the .vmx file. Starting the guest machine, I was able to see the apple starting screen with progress bar going below. Unfortunately at around 3/4 of the progress bar, it stopped and shows a white sign that normally indicating incompatible hardware. (as attached) I thought this was new validation for el capitan so tried to install with the same steps on yosemite, but still got exact same error screen at around the same position on progress bar. Can someone please let me know what I might have done wrong? Thanks in advance
  13. I have installed El Capitan on my y510p laptop using Clover. followed this thread Actually everything worked quite well. The time when everything ready, even keep switch windows and mac os also no problem. Then eventually I going back to my windows 10 and did my stuff. In the next day, when I want to boot into Mac OS, then problem come (WHAT? the last boot was just perfect! Why so sudden?) I couldn't boot into my Mac OS. It gave me infinite spinning ball after logging in. OK, fine, I reformatted it. I reinstalled everything and even EFI partition. Everythings worked well again. Then I used back my windows 10 and did my stuff. The next day, SAME THING HAPPENED. I reinstalled everything again. This time I reinstalled both my windows 10 and Mac OS. Wow, Worked well. Then the next day, stucking at apple logo. Above are my reformat processes. Now I'm going to explain my debugging about this. I tried to boot in verbose mode, safe mode. I tried to use disk utility to repair my disk. What I got is "disk could not verified" DiskWarrior expensive, so I used MacDrive 10, tried to repair the disk. Couldn't repair and get "internal result 8". So what should I do, it could not even stand over one night. Is my windows break Mac OS partition? EFI breaks Mac OS partition? Clover break Mac os partition? Hardware problem? but my windows works perfectly. PLEASE help me.
  14. I got the install working, but the wifi, touchpad, and built-in keyboard doesn't work. The sound, optical drive, and usb work fine. P.S. The Logitech M325c mouse works in El Capitan. I attached a file listing my hardware specs below. hardware specs.txt
  15. Hi folks! I run El Capitan on VB by guide on this forum. Everything works great, but I'd like to do 2 more modifications and I'll be very thankful if you helped me... 1. Adding serials to SMBIOS The main reason I run virtualisation of OSX is that I want to code apps with Xcode - Xcode wants you tu sign in with your Apple ID to sign apps. I've read that in virtualisation, there are no serials/information in SMBIOS, so "Apple" device can't be verified, which outcome is you to unable to login. I found something about Clover and Clover Configurator. I even tried that, but there were just many errors and problem wasn't solved. Can someone give me step-by-step instructions how to do this? 2. Custom screen resolution I think this'll be simpler than 1. but I couldn't find any exact guide. I managed to change resolution by VBoxManage setextradata "El Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N, but I'd like to have 16:9 res (1920x1080). Is there any way to do it?

    El Capitan on AMD FX CPU?

    hi, how to install El Capitan on an AMD system? I found an AMD Kernel here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...pic/?p=2195566 but it already fails on install. My system: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 Legacy Boot AMD FX4300 16GB RAM GIGABYTE NVidia GTX 750 Ti El Capitan Installer on USB Drive, attatched to USB 2.0 Port, Clover Bootloader Booting installer with -v results in one line "+++++++++++++++++++++++", then rebooting without any message. Do i need the AMD kernel to run installer? I didn't know where to put the kernel on install media, as there is no /System/Library/Kernels on the installer media.
  17. Buongiorno a tutti. vorrei informazioni riguardo il mio PC. Pensate possa funzionare el capitan (o anche yosemite) sul mio Asus N53JQ? Ecco la configurazione: Processore: Intel Core i7 Q740 @ 1.73 GHz (turbo boost 2.9 GHz) HDD: 750GB (5400 rpm) Ram: 4GB Scheda video: Nvidia GEFORCE GT425M (1GB Dedicato) Chipset: Intel HM55 Scheda di rete wireless: Atheros AR9285 Scheda audio: Realtek High Definition Audio (credo sia questa) Con questa configurazione, che è quella attuale, ho provato yosemite con vmware e sembra funzionare e sono riuscito a smanettarci un pò. Nei prossimi giorni (sto aspettando che consegnino tutto ) apporterò delle modifiche e la nuova configurazione sarà questa: Processore: Intel Core i7 Q740 @ 1.73 GHz (turbo boost 2.9 GHz) SSD: Samsung 850 evo 500gb Ram: 12GB Scheda video: Nvidia GEFORCE GT425M (1GB Dedicato) Chipset: Intel HM55 Scheda di rete wireless: Atheros AR9285 Scheda audio: Realtek High Definition Audio (credo sia questa) La mia preoccupazione maggiore è la scheda video. Ad ogni modo sono aperto ad ogni tipo di critica o consiglio, sperando che alla fine si possa fare tutto. Vi ringrazio di mettere la vostra esperienza al servizio di un inesperto come me e per la vostra pazienza.
  18. Hi My system is a dell optiplex 980 with an i5 and it runs 10.10 really well - I use chameleon as the bootloader and i have tried many steps to get 10.11 going but the installer will never go past 'Still waiting for root device.'I am pretty convinced this old motherboard is USB2 based and from my reading it seems this error is likely to be USB related but i cant figure out how to proceed. I am using a USB installer with enoch chameleon to boot this. I do not use a DSDT and in 10.10 all hardware appears to work pretty natively. Any clues to help me proceed?
  19. UPDATE: Managed to make Apple Store work for the first time ever! I installed IntelMausiEthernet.kext first so it can be assigned to "en0", then I installed my USB WIFI dongle(Brand: Netis. Chipset: Realtek RTL8192CU8). Tried to patch AppleHDA.kext for my ALC892. I can see 4 outputs and 2 input. Only one input works. Everything else doesn't work. I'm still working on it. Hello, everyone! For those who were having problems installing OS X El Capitan on X99A SLI Plus with Core i7 5820K Haswell-E, here's how I fixed it: First of all, I used the RAW USB image from this link: (thepiratebay is down at the moment, just go to thepiratebay.com and it will redirect to the current domain they're using, then type 'el capitan intel pcs' and download the most seeded file you find at the top of the results.) The thing about this image is that it can be installed via Windows using Win32 Disk Imager, for those who want to install OS X for the first time or their OS X got damaged and it cannot be recovered. I used a version of FakeSMC.kext(see attachments) I found by chance, and I replaced the other FakeSMC.kext stored in the USB EFI partition via Windows. (EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/10.11/) In addition to that, I removed Voodoo PS2 controller kext--just to be safe--because I've been having KPs because of it since 2009 on OS X Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard. For boot args, I used: -v npci=0x2000 I also enabled Haswell-E patch. If I don't replace FakeSMC.kext with the one attached, I get a KP concerning CPUSensors.kext plugin which can be found inside FakeSMC.kext. I hope this helps. (Posting this from OS X El Capitan) FakeSMC.kext.zip
  20. Introduction This guide should work for all HP Pavilion 15 Broadwell(5th gen) laptops. I used AB205TX. This is my first guide so please use comment section if I missed something. I have used Andres Zero Cross' guide and made changes to make it work for us. My Specifications Processor: i5 5200u Graphics: HD5500 and GT940m Display: 15.6" 1920x1080 Ram: 8Gb DDR3L Dual Booted with Windows 10 What’s not working: 1. Built-in WiFi (Can't! Obviously, use an external adapter) 2. GT 940m (MacOSX doesn’t support Nvidia optimus.) Prerequisites: 1. A Mac/Hackintosh/VM for making the install usb. 2. A pendrive 8GB or more. 3. Clover Configurator installed on machine you will use for making the install usb. Getting the Bios ready: 1. Disable virtualisation. 2. Disable Secure Boot. 3. Enable Legacy Mode. Use clover r3330. Nvram problems have been reported in some of the latest versions. I recommend version r3330 because it worked just fine for me. Making Install USB: RehabMan made a very detailed guide (mentioned below) on how to install clover on usb. While following his(did I just assume his gender? ) guide keep the following things in mind: The guide: https://www.tonymacx...-clover.148093/ 1.Follow the UEFI way and 2 partition method (not necessary but recommended) 2.When installing clover on "Clover Efi"partition use the following configuration - Install for UEFI booting Only - Install Clover in the ESP - For Drivers64UEFI (DataHubDxe-64, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64, PartitonDxe-64) then click Install. Open Config.plist at your EFI Partition of USB Installer (EFI/Clover/) with Clover Configurator and match these use nv_disable only if you have a nvidia card with Intel HD using optimus technology. Note: In the below snap my MLB is not there. You will have one already filled, let it be and don't delete it. -Go to Clover EFI > EFI > Clover > Kexts > other > and paste FakeSMC.kext and VoodooPS2controller.kext in attachments. Delete rest of the kexts in the folder. Now, just boot from your USB and install. Installing Clover on HDD: 1.Install Clover on your hard disk and check - Install RC scripts on target volume - Install all RC Scripts on all other bootable volume - Optional RC Scripts 2.Mount EFI partition of USB Installer copy the Clover folder to EFI partition of your hard disk, thus replacing the Clover folder of your hard disk. I have attached my Post-Install Clover files in case you have hp pavilion 15 ab205tx or you need to see my config.plist My dsdt and ssdts should work for you if you have the same machine. Just copy the clover folder to your efi partition and update your bios to F.82 Rev.A from HP website. If you are using my clover folder as it is you probably don't need to apply any of these patches below as they are already enabled in my config.plist. Fixing Graphics: Open config.plist at your EFI/CLOVER/ on your hard drive with Clover Configurator and write these patches in "kextToPatch" at "Kernel and Kext Patches" - Name=AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer, Find=4139C4763E, Replace=4139C4EB3E, Comment=“Unlocking framebuffer" - Name=AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer, Find=39CF763C, Replace=39CF773C (Add this with the one above only If the above patch doesn't work alone) To activate HDMI Audio: - Name=AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer, Find=02000001050B00000400000705000002040B00000400000705, Replace=02000001050B00000800000705000002040B00000400000705, Comment=“HDMI audio Fix" Now go to Graphics Section and in “ig-platforms-id" type 0x16260006 In the Boot you can uncheck verbose and kext-dev-mode=1 Open EFI partition on your HDD go to EFI > Clover > kexts > other > and delete all the kexts in it and replace them by ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext and FakeSMC.kext Fixing Audio For audio : https://redd.it/4e23w6 for ab205tx it is ALC290. I used Layout ID: 3 Reboot, now you have QE/CI for Intel HD 5500, Audio and Touchpad with gestures working. Fixing Performance: 1. Open up the config.plist of your HDD and choose a suitable SMBIOS. Generally its the one with similar processor. I used Macbook Pro(12,1). Follow this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-how-to-configure-your-systems-smbios-correctly.198155/ 2. You will need to enable Native power management to get the most performance out of your machine. Follow this Guide: https://www.tonymacx...laptops.175801/ Fixing Battery: 1. After you have enabled Native Power Management you can disable Nvidia card for OSX to get more battery backup as the card draws power even though it is not supported on os x. Follow this guide: https://www.tonymacx...laptops.163772/ Note: after disabling Nvidia you can boot without nv_disable=1 and remember to drop oem ssdt after patching your own. 2. To get a working battery status follow this guide: https://www.tonymacx...-status.116102/ Hotkeys: Volume and music hotkeys should work out of the box for us. Brightness hotkeys however don't. You need to do some patching to get them working like volume keys but, that's too much work for something such small. To make them work just go to syetem prefs>keyboard>shortcut and change brightness shortcuts to fn+f2 and fn+f3 depending on your machine.Now you have brightness keys working just press fn and then the keys to change brightness. Fixing Internet/AppStore/iMessage/Facetime: I use External USB adapter to connect to Wifi. Note: Use latest wifi driver for the USB adapter(the cd included with the adapter often has outdated drivers). Old drivers caused kernel panics for me. If USB wifi adapters are costly in your country or ones from good brands aren't available you can use Leoxsys usb wifi adapters which were the only ones that worked for me among all the cheap Chinese products I could find. You might notice that you are unable to sign into you Apple Id in AppStore and iMessage. This is because Apple collects some data while you sign in which we provide using our SMBIOS but that's not enough. We need ethernet set en0 and most importantly it should be shown as builtin, which is not possible for us as our ethernet/Wifi cards aren't supported. RehabMan came up with an excellent way to solve the problem. He faked ethernet device that shows up as onboard ethernet, this is possible by adding a device in DSDT. Solution: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Null-Ethernet Sync time between windows and mac: If you are dual booting like me, you may find that windows or osx shows incorrect time. for that follow this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298027-guide-aio-guides-for-hackintosh/?do=findComment&comment=2020591 Credits: Hackintosh community and all those whose guides I linked.

  21. Hi, Im having some trouble installing El Capitan on my mackintosh. Every time i boot into mac using a 8gb usb drive(Motherboard usb 2.0 port), the progression bar will finish at the end of the bar but never proceed to the installation. Specs: Gigabyte z87-D3H motherboard Intel integrated graphics i5-4460 CPU 8gb RAM My steps for installing el capitan: 1)Install ########## (sorry but i have to use it, Chimera doesn't support El Capitan!) with UEFI boot mode 2)Make sure i have the correct bios setting(adhi, no vt-d) 3)boot from usb 4)select "boot mac os from usb" 5)get stuck at apple logo screen I've tried -v, -x(didn't work at all), graphicsEnabler, PCIRootUID. And none of them worked. Sorry I'm a big noob and this is my first time installing Mac OS x. Thanks a lot guys. without any boot flags. with -v with -x
  22. Hello, I have a splendid working machine with annoying hiccups... meaning, everything its working, and it is quite fast. Mostly I use it for video editing in Final Cut Pro X and After Effects. I carefully selected the mix in order to be optimized for FinalCut and Video editing and processing. I had a small hindsight about the XFX possible difficulties... but after sometime of trying different options, It is working (flashing bios method). I upgraded to EL CAPITAN about 2 months from now, and got wifi card enabled and working (before I was using ethernet cable mostly)... Everything goes well and smooth, and at times it hangs, and sometimes shut down, and stays in a reestarting loop (2 or 3 times loop max) and stays fine for some other time until it hangs again or freezes... and again same thing... I NEED HELP !!! I require a reliable, robust, and stable machine!... can any of you experts give me a hand on this! Thank you in advance...
  23. Hi Friends, I have setup almost everything on my poweredge T20 hackintosh, so far all works, except for my 4k hdtv, the tv works great under windows with 4k@60hz and chroma 444 but on El Capitan all the text on the screen looks like {censored}. hard for the eyes, you know... I have a GTX 750ti with the latest web drivers from nvidia 346.03.04f02 as of today. I also use a Displayport to hdmi converter (yes it supports 60hz) from club-3d and a hdmi 2.0 cable, like I said, everything works great under winblows the monitor is a Sony x830c43 I also installed switchresx to try to get the right setting done but I am stocked, I don't know what to do, I know I need RGB444 and would like to have 4k@60hz and be able to read. thanx
  24. I know this is kind of broad, but if I build a workstation that's well supported on High Sierra now, how likely is it to still work well with the next major OSx release next fall? If you had to guess, what % chance do I have of encountering major issues when trying to update next fall? The kinds of issues that would seriously interfere with my day to day work of photo and video editing? For example, kext/kernel panics (is that even a thing still?) or major pieces of hardware suddenly not being supported, and so on... Has migrating your Hackintosh to the latest release has gotten easier in recent years? So for those of you who have been making builds for a while, is going from Sierra to High Sierra causing you fewer problems than Mavericks --> Yosemite for example or Yosemite --> El Capitan etc? Sorry if this is a bit broad and ignorant, but I've been away from the forums for quite a while and just trying to get a sense of how "stable" and "future-proof" Hackintoshes are these days - compared to Apple's own desktops ... I'm OK not updating incrementally ie v13.1 to v13.2 if I need to, but I'm worried about having to start completely from scratch with each new main version.
  25. Hi, guys. I’m facing a problem with a wifi/bluetooth combo card. I bought this PCI-e 1X adapter and a BCM943224PCIEBT2 (BCM43224) card, which is a common module on Macbook Air models from 2010 up to 2012. The items were bought separately, and when they both arrived I installed on a PCIe slot of my machine running OSX 10.11.5 (El Capitan) and connected the mandatory micro usb port of the module on a USB port on the back of my Gigabyte motherboard using the provided cable. The wifi is fully recognised and works effortlessly and though the bluetooth module is present on the Preferences Pane and on OSX menu bar, it simply doesn’t recognise my Magic Trackpad and Magic Keyboard (they both are recognised by my Macbook Pro). I tried to make it recognise something else (an AirTracks bluetooth headphone), but it was to no avail. Strangely, there is a unknown device which appears on the bluetooth panel which I have no idea what it is (it is not mine for sure, it could be from a neighbour or it simply could be an error, since it doesn’t recognise my Apple devices which are in front of it). This unknown device is shown with the Magic Mouse icon, but it doesn’t connect too and it is not shown on the Magic Mouse portion of the Pref Pane. I installed Sierra and Mavericks on a separate partition to verify if it was not simply an El Capitan issue, but it worked the same way on both: wifi fully working, bluetooth present on Preferences Panel, but nothing is recognised. I’m already providing the System Information screenshots showing the wifi, bluetooth and USB Hub info for you to check what is possibly wrong here. My setup is made of an Intel i7 4770 on a Gigabyte Z97M-D3H with 16Gb of ram (2x8 HyperX modules) and OSX installed on a SanDisk SDSSDA240G. I’m using Intel onboard graphics. Can you guys help solve this issue? Thanks a lot!
