  4. macOS Mojave 10.14.3 beta (18D21c)
  5. Ciro82==>>Thanks Uno dei tre Requisiti: Hack funzionante Mac vero Macchina virtuale Impostazioni Bios per il boot: Cercate una voce del tipo “Sata Mode”e settatela in AHCI Secure Boot: disabilitare o altri sistemi operativi CSM: UEFI o LEGACY, oppure a secondo del tipo di installazione VT-x / VT-d disable *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI Materiale Occorrente "OS X (Versione App.Store)” USB 8GB *nota: nel caso di usb superiori dovrà essere partizionata, in modo da avere una partizione su cui "lavoreremo,di questa dimensione ShowAllfiles kext Wizard Bootloader Clover_2.3k_r xxx: http: //sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/ Clover Configurator: http: //mackie100proj...a.org/download/ FakeSmc.kext: https://github.com/kozlek/HWSensors/releases In allegato,a fondo pagina troverete un "pacchetto" contenente : ShowAllfiles, Kext Wizard, FakeSmc.kext: App alternative: ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3: Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB. “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE” PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled. PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni Utility Disco Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”. Immagine Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan. Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza. dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni Immagine Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi" Immagine ===================== METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD. Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script Esempio =========================== Metodo 2 L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta con Mavericks. Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso” Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così. Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso. Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”??? Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale. A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio. Comando per creare USB con Yosemite: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con El Capitan sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14) Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO… AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO……………………………………….. COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO. DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI. Immagine Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb. *NOTA*: Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo. Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata ========================= METODO "MANUALE".... (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12) ========================== Bootloader **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in modalità Legacy. Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo Fatto questo dobbiamo installare Clover sulla usb. A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase. Lanciate il pkg. Immagine Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita) Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc" Per Installazione UEFI Mettete i flag : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI : installare Clover nella ESP : Driver64UEFI selezionate OsxAptioFixDrv-64 * :Se nel vostro sistema è presente una scheda grafica (discreta) della serie 9xx nVidia selezionate OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 al posto di OsxAptioFixDrv-64 * ** OsxAptioFix2Drv :E' necessario per poter impostare CsrActiveConfig= 0x3 ** ***OsxAptioFix3Drv oppure AptioMemory --> (consigliato) devono essere usati su hardware Skylake o successivi perché permettono alla nvram di lavorare correttamente (mi raccomando o uno o l'altro) Proseguite con l’installazione. Immagine ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI** =========================== Per installazione Legacy Immagine =========================== Impostazione per config.plist: Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb. 1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI” 2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition” Immagine 3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist 4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2 Immagine 5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1 Immagine 6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67 Immagine 7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES Immagine =========================== Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection) Info: =========================== Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”. Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched Immagine  Per High Sierra: Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo: --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post: Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb Utenti Laptop: Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb -------------------------------------------------------------------- Per Mojave: Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo: --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015 Volete usare HFS? E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti... nel caso guardate... Mojave in HFS Oppure direttamente da usb Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX. ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot...... *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo. Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti) Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26 Post installazione... post #2 Buon Hack…..  Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12) le info le trovate a questo post Ringrazio @Ciro82 che mi ha aiutato nel preparare questa guida.

  9. I have a Lenovo P52 laptop, Xeon E-2176M hexacore, 32GB mem, SSD, 4K display running VMware Workstation 15, latest darwin.iso. I freshly installed Mojave in a VM. The VM has 8 GB mem, 2 Proc, 2 Cores, 100GB single file disk. VMware Tools is installed in the VM. When I boot, it takes roughly 4-5 seconds for the Apple logo to show up (after the EFI boot) and then roughly 80 seconds to get the Apple desktop. Is this expected performance ? I know this is virtualized, but even my 2009 MacBook Pro boots faster than this. I have searched but not found any notes regarding performance. And related to video performance, if I start LaunchPad, it appears relatively quickly but if I select the "Other" folder which typically contains the Utilities, that may take 5 seconds to show up. I know this is a video performance issue but do not know how to fix this...
  10. I successfully installed macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 in UEFI mode on the laptop. I know, there are detailed guides here and on osxlatitude.com but I was not agree with them and carefully check and test every step to tune my Mac. Hardware Intel® Core� i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, speedstep works with Clover default settings Chipset Intel 7 series, no patches needed Video: IntelHD4000 or NVS5200M switchable in BIOS, work in both cases LAN; Intel 82579LM, works with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.2.1 Audio: IDT 92HD93BXX, works with VoodooHDA 2.9.0. SDHC reader O2Micro; works with native AppleSDHC.kext with Clover Arbitrary properties. USB3.0 works natively if not disabled in DSDT PS2 keyboard and touchpad works with VoodooPS2. WiFi: Dell Intel WiFi was replaced by Dell DW1520, Broadcom BCM943224HMS. DeviceID=4353 LCD Screen 1366x768 BIOS A12. Initially was A02. Then I flashed A23 and found it is quite bad. The screen is full of artefacts. Flash A12 and all is OK. Not tested other versions. For some reason BIOS can switched from Intel to Nvidia by itself so I have to do my solution working independent on this state. WiFi It is not working OOB although it has DeviceID known to Apple. The reason is WhiteList in the driver. I set MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 while the WiFi will work on MacBookAir. I make a patch in Clover. As well a patch for channels. I deleted a kext Brcm4331 because it has the same DeviceID. Let kext Brcm4360 to work alone. VideoCards In Bios we can set Optimus = Enable/Disable If Enable then we have two videocards Intel first and Nvidia second. In this case additional SSDT-3.aml will switch off Nvidia. If Disable then we have only Nvidia card. It will work if Board-ID taken from iMac13,2. But here there is contradiction with WiFi with required Board-ID from MacBookAir. So I take MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 which is most close by CPU IvyBridge. Set BoardID like iMac13,2 to make Nvidia working. Patch BoardID in Brcm4360 to make WiFi working. Now I have Inject-> ->Intel=YES ->Nvidia=YES and SSDT-3.aml in ACPI\patched folder. This SSDT will switch off Nvidia if Intel card ON. For Intel graphics there is a patch against 8 apples at start. Brightness No special kexts. The brightness controlled by keys F1,F2 and slider in Control Panel in both case Intel or Nvidia. Details here #72 DSDT and SSDT This is very long story and finally I have working sleep in both cases Intel or Nvidia. Sensors I use my HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5.0. I got monitoring: CPU temperature GPU temperature GPU main frequency GPU shader frequency Battery state % full, time to charged or time to empty. Battery voltage dinamically. Battery amperage dynamically. I can see it changes on heavy games. HDD temperature. Audio I like VoodooHDA and have no problems with it.

  11. La version finale (build 18C54) est disponible sur App Store
  12. macOS Mojave 10.14.2 beta (18C31g)
  13. After a long run, I successfully upgraded High Sierra to mojave 10.14 on an intel 5 series chipset MotherBoard. MotherBoard: H55ms2 RAM: 6GB GPU1: Saphire AMD RX 460 GPU2: Nvidia 8400GS Storage: 500 GB HDD WD Green. The requirement: 1) macOS pre mojave. 2) macOS mojave installer from Apple store. 3) Empty partition or USB to upgrade from. 4) Un-mout all unused dmgs. 5) GPT/GUID HDD. HOWOT: 1) Prepare an empty partition or USB with at least 6 GB. 2) Format the partition or USB with GUID partition table and HFS+ partition with a name BootablePartition. 3) Go to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app. 4) Show Package Contents. 5) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find BaseSystem.dmg. 6) Double click on BaseSystem.dmg to mount. 7) From Disk Utilty click on your partition or the USB that you prepared from number (2). 8) Click on restore, and chose OS X Base System (BaseSystem.dmg image), then restore it to that partition or USB. 9) After restoring rename the partition back to BootablePartition. 9) Run this command: rm -rfv /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 10) Create a new folder instead of the broken link and name it Packages, run this command: mkdir -v /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 11) Go back to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app and repeat number 2. 12) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find InstallESD.dmg. 13) Mount InstallESD.dmg. 14) Run this command: cp -v /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages/ 15) Download the latest clover from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ 16) Install clover on your USB BootablePartition or in a different USB to boot from it. delete all your CLOVER/kext/10.xx and keep others, make sure you don't have any extra kext rather than FakeSMC.kext in the other folder. in my case I used FakeSMC.kext and my lan kext RealtekRTL8111.kext. 17) known Problems in my build: If I updated directly from the apple store the installer in clover will boot with a cross circle sign. The FIX is to add this to Clover KextToPatch Thanks to @sunKi http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327488-macos-high-sierra-final-release-is-out-17a365/page-10?do=findComment&comment=2505086 this fix is still working for me in mojave. <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>fix IO error ICH10 for 10.13, credit SunKi</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> RYX2D5XCiciD4P5mhcl4D4TSdQs= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> iciD4P5mhckPmMFBCMyQkJCQdQs= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>fix hotplug ICH10 for 10.13, credit SunKi</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> icglQGACAD1AIAAAdQyB4b9///+Ji1EBAAA= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> kJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJA= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> RXh0ZXJuYWw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> SW50ZXJuYWw= </data> </dict> </array> 18) make sure you have apfs.efi copy it from /Volumes/BootablePartition/usr/standalone/i386/apfs.efi to your EFI/CLOVER/drivers64/ and EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/. 19) SMBIOS mac model that I use is iMac13,2. 20) Go to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app click on it and chose to install to your macOS High Sierra partition. 21) Reboot. 22) From clover chose BootablePartion. 23) If everything is okie BootablePartition will boot to install macOS mojave, wait wait wait till it finish it might take to 1 hour just wait it will reach the auto reboot soon . 24) Boot to your old macOS Hight Sierra that will be your mojave partition now and enjoy. POST Install: 1) audio: a) Download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext or build them from source (which I did). b) place them in your /EFI/CLOVER/kext/others/ c) add your audio layout in clover/Devices dict options in my case it's ALC888B which has the layout of 1: <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <string>1</string> </dict> d) I had to add beta args to clover/Boot dict, argument (-lilubeta -alcbeta): <key>Arguments</key> <string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string> 2) Add number 14 KextsToPath array to your clover as well. Anything else is working for me I didn't need any extra clover kext so far, I tried whatevergreen.kext to fire up my rx 460 without the helper card but no success, So I am just sticking with booting from Nvidia as a first GPU from my motherboard configuration then swap the cables after choosing my macOS partion from clover. After upgrading my HFS+ High Sierra partition converted to APFS, no know problem so far. Happy build and more info about the partitioning method with a more detailed instructions in this post that I used to update my Sierra to High Sierra Special thanks to crazybirdy, sunKi and all of you out there that make this happens.
  14. As practice shows with the installation of macOS 10.14 Mojave, official cakes from previous, previous versions of the OS sometimes help. So, I pulled out folders /System/Library/Extensions /Library/Extensions from different versions of MacOSX and uploaded on Yandex.Disk and Mediafire.

    Serious colour banding

    Hello InsanelyMacForum, I managed to boot into Mac OS Sierra with my Intel Core 2 Duo, Nvidia 9400 GT and 4 GB of Ram machine, got internet and sound working, but the issue appears when I boot with Nvidia Web Driver. I get these acid colours, but Graphics Acceleration is working fine. I tried to inject EDID from my display, but no results as well. Would be really grateful if someone could provide some help. Thank you!

  22. I had posted a note earlier with little feedback so I thought I would post HOW TO INSTALL High Sierra on VMware Workstation 12.5.7 It is much easier than the complicated scripts that I have seen. Assuming that you have a functioning macOS system: 1) On your existing macOS, go to the App Store and download the High Sierra installer. Some people have reported that a stub installer is only downloaded although this has not happened to me. If it happens to you, follow the instructions on this page: http://osxdaily.com/2017/09/27/download-complete-macos-high-sierra-installer/ 2) The easy way to create a bootable USB is to use Install Disk Creator. It has been updated for High Sierra: https://macdaddy.io/install-disk-creator/ OR, Using a Terminal window, you could use the command: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume Note: Replace "MyVolume" with the name of the macOS volume of your USB key 3) Create a new Virtual Machine in VMware Workstation. Select "Apple Mac OS X" as the Guest O/S and "macOS 10.12" as the version. Select the default for all other options (although I prefer to have the virtual disk as one single file) 4) Edit the newly created VMX file and append the two following lines: smc.version = 0 sata0:0.virtualSSD = "0" 5) Start your VM, and attach your USB key to the VM so that VMware can boot the installer. Proceed with a normal installation of macOS. Use Disk Utility to format the new virtual disk as a "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" DO NOT SELECT APFS as your volume type. 6) Install High Sierra using all normal defaults. 7) Install the VMware Tools from VMware Workstation 14. There is new support for HiDPI displays which is great. 8) After a sucessful install, shutdown your macOS VM and edit the VMX file. Now change the virtualSSD value to a "1": sata0:0.virtualSSD = "1" The reason why you cannot install High Sierra in VMware Workstation 12 is that (in my understanding, someone may correct me), in the second phase of the install, the installer reformats the volume to APFS which Workstation 12 cannot boot from properly. But forcing macOS to think it is an HD disk and not SSD allows a proper install. Then changing it back allows macOS to see its virtual drive as an SSD and will not attempt to reformat it to APFS. If anyone has additional comments, please feel free to correct me or add.
