  3. I have a couple Bose speakers for which I'd like to create an aggregate sound device. I've attempted this procedure in the past, with other speakers and mixed results. In this case, I have an older-model Bose Wave Radio with the USB dongle and a new Bose Revolve+ Soundlink cylinder. They are both within 20ft proximity of my MacPro, so there aren't signal issues involved. I've attempted using both the dongle and the Resolve+ as the clocking device, altering drift control appropriately -- most times, I just get one speaker working. At one point, I was getting sound delays where I'd hear music in one speaker, then the same beat on the next a skip/step later. That was fun. From my experience using this MIDI setup, I'm beginning to think it's buggy. However, it may be I just can't accomplish what I need to do here, though I cannot see why as they work fine individually and this is just an API abstraction underneath (presumably). I've looked online, followed directions, but I still can't get this working -- I wonder if anyone here has encountered this problem, or may have some useful pointers. Thanks!

  7. It’s that time of year again! With #WWDC2016 in full swing, Apple has graced us with an insider look at the next big OS release for the newly renamed macOS, dubbed Sierra. By default, it doesn’t work in Fusion as a virtual machine the same way users would expect by simply dragging the installer .app onto Fusion. Make sure to update to the latest version of Fusion, otherwise it might not work. Luckily, we can use some tools built into OS X El Capitan (and earlier) to get this working in a VM. At a high level, we need a blank OS X 10.11 (custom) VM, and we need to leverage command line tools (with links to their respective docs): Apple’s ‘createinstallmedia‘ CLI tool which is bundled with the “Install 10.12 Developer Preview.app” VMware’s ‘vmware-rawdiskCreator‘ tool to create the actual disk where we will be installing to. First, you’ll need to have a blank, custom VM. This is straightforward, but I’ll walk through just so you have it. From Fusion go File > New From the ‘New VM’ wizard we would choose ‘Create Custom VM’ Choose the OS version OS X 10.11 Choose ‘Create New Disk‘ Save the VM wherever you please I customized it to add more RAM, bumping it to 4GB (4096MB) just to be on the safe side. When you have your new blank VM, we now need to do 3 things: Create the installation media “sparse image” Copy contents of the installer into the new installation media sparse image Create a .vmdk which ‘points’ to the installation media sparse image (now filled with the contents of the installer) that we just created. So to do that we start with Mac’s Disk Utility app. You’ll find it in your /Applications/Utilities folder (or do like I do and hit cmd-space and search Spotlight for ALL THE THINGS… ? In Disk Utility go File > New Image > Blank Image… and use the settings I have in the image below (call the file whatever you like, but make sure it has the following: Size = 6GB (absolutely not smaller) Format = OS X Extended (Journaled) Encryption = none Partition = Single Partition – GUID Partition Mac Image Format = sparse disk image This creates the blank slate that we will then copy the contents of the “Install 10.12 Developer Preview.app” into using ‘createinstallimage’ utility. It should ‘mount’ the new image we just created, but if it’s not there you can mount it with Disk Utility or from the command line. Mine mounted automatically. Once it’s mounted we can copy the contents of our installation app into the new sparse image. For this, we jump down to the command line and run some commands. First, let’s create our install media. sudo /Applications/Install\ 10.12\ Developer\ Preview.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/macOS-10.12_DP --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ 10.12\ Developer\ Preview.app I named the thing I created with Disk Utility ‘macOS-10.12_DP’ as you can see in the ‘Name’ field in the image above. Easy peasy… contents copied, new installation media is created with the sparse image we just created, filled with the contents of the installer .app we got from Apple. Now, let’s make sure the host Mac’s disk layout is okay with “diskutil list“: (for clarity, $ is the prompt at the terminal, you do not need to type it) $ diskutil list It outputs something like the image below: We can see that I have the ‘Install 10.12 Developer Preview’ mounted as /dev/disk2s2. We need this device id because this is the prepared installation media that we’ll be installing from in the blank virtual machine we created earlier, and the disk number may change depending on what you have mounted on your system. Now we use VMware’s ‘vmware-rawdiskCreator’ tool to create a .vmdk based on the sparse image we created. The syntax is as follows: <path to vmware-rawdiskCreator> create <device id> <partition id> <path to where we want the .vmdk to be saved> <bus type> So a few things about that so we understand what’s happening: vmware-rawdiskCreator is located within the Fusion app bundle itself, so we’ll point to that create is the vmware-rawdiskCreator function that will create a new “raw” disk <device id> is the /dev/disk2 that we saw earlier, yours may be different if you have other disks mounted. <partition id> is 2 because it’s the 3rd partition on the ‘device’, and numbering starts at 0 (so 0 = first, 1 = second…) We tell it where we want it to be saved, and in our case it will be within the VM bundle that we created at the beginning <bus type> we choose lsilogic so that it behaves like a CD-ROM. So, for me the command is as follows (all one line): $ /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/disk2 2 ~/Documents/Virtual\ Machines.localized/macOS_10.12.vmwarevm/macOS_installationmedia lsilogic It should take a few seconds to make the new .vmdk. Okay, breathe… we are about to get the actual install started. Because Fusion doesn’t support mounting raw disks using the UI, we just have to add it to the configuration file manually. In the Virtual Machine Library window, right-click your newly created OS X 10.11 VM. If you hold down the ‘Option’ key you’ll notice some options change… including ‘Edit config file in a text editor’ (I couldn’t take a screenshot due to the need for multiple key presses). With the config file open in TextEdit, paste the following either at the bottom or with the other SATA device to keep them together (if you’re a little ocd about it like I am ? sata0:2.present = "TRUE" sata0:2.fileName = "macOS_installationmedia.vmdk" sata0:2.deviceType = "rawDisk" suspend.disabled = "TRUE" Notice the file we’re pointing at is ‘macOS_installationmedia.vmdk’… that’s the one we just created with our vmware-rawdiskCreator tool, and it’s a relative path meaning it’s in the same folder as the config file (.vmx) itself. Close the document (if you’re using TextEdit it will save automatically). Now all that’s left is to press ‘Play’ on the VM and go through the installation! It’s a bit of hack, but we’re working on making it just as seamless as installing current and earlier versions of OS X on Fusion. To recap, we did the following: Downloaded the macOS 10.12 Developer Preview Created a blank VM with OS X 10.11 as the type Created a sparse disk for the install media Copied the install media to the sparse disk Used vmware-rawdiskCreator to create a .vmdk based on the sparse disk with the installation media Boot and install Once the installation is done you can delete the extra hard disk because it’s no longer needed, and you can’t suspend the VM while a raw disk is attached. Hope that helps folks looking to try the latest that Apple has to offer! Let me know in the comments how that’s working out for you, if you have any suggestions, or need clarity on anything I’ve written here! One minor nitpick After installation, one should shut down the VM (via macOS Shutdown option), then re-edit the VM configuration file and remove 4-line entries: If you don’t delete these lines you end up with weird ‘bootcamp’ related errors… (we use rawdiskcreator for bootcamp installs, naturally)… And because it’s a raw-disk it can’t be deleted from the UI (because that would break a bootcamp VM so we disallow that). sata0:2.present = “TRUE” sata0:2.fileName = “macOS_installationmedia.vmdk” sata0:2.deviceType = “rawDisk” suspend.disabled = “TRUE” Thanks for the feedback, friends! The install should work afterwards Here are some screenshot of the install process and the following fun hahahha
  8. Hello, I've updated my Ativ today to Sierra GM using the App Store, just wanted to share my experience. First of all, i've been running El Cap for a few months now, thanks to this guide, so all credits go for duduclx and the folks who contributed there. Still no Wacom drivers for Sierra, so no pressure sensitivity on the screen. If this is important for you don't update yet. Haven't tried it yet, but the Wacom drivers for Sierra are published. Ok, these are the steps I took: -------------------- 1 - As usual, backup your ElCap install. I use Clonezilla. 2 - Download macOS Sierra GM from the Store. 3 - Update Clover to the last version. I did that by opening Clover Configurator, update it to the last version, and then select Install/Update Clover. It will download the last version, just check that you are installing it on your current OS X drive and that the same options as duduclx guide are marked. 4 - After Clover is update, mount your EFI partition and copy FakeSMC.kext, NullEthernet.kext, to /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/ (You can delete all the others folders if you want) 5 - Download and copy HFSPlus.efi to /EFI/Clover/Drivers64UEFI 6 - Launch the Sierra installer. When the system reboots, select Boot OS X Install in Clover. The OS will start updating, and eventually it will reboot. In Clover, select Boot Mac OS X, and the final part of the update process will begin (VoodooPS2Controller.kext caused a kernel panic in this boot, i had to enter recovery and remove it from /Volumes/OSX/System/Library/Extensions/. I guess you can delete it from ElCap before launching the Sierra installer). 7 - After the update is done, you can configure your Apple id, etc. I had no sound, use EasyKext or whatever and reinstall AtivHDA.kext and the rest of the kexts in the Post installation section of duduclx guide. Reboot and you're done. -------------------- I mainly use the Ativ hooked up to a 23" FHD screen. Xcode, Logic X, the App Store, iCloud, are working as good as ever. Only flaws so far: - No Wacom drivers yet. - The mic isn't working so no Siri. Wasn't working for me in El Capitan either, never took the hassle to figure it out why. - Physical volume keys on the side of the tablet are not working. If anyone knows how to fix the last 2 issues would be much appreciated :-) P.S. English is not my main language. Also, i'm no expert so maybe there are things that could have been done better or not needed to be done at all.

    Salve, sul PC di un amico sto installando sierra (vanilla) e ci sono anche riuscito, funziona tutto tranne l'audio (dall'aux), credo che sia un problema di configurazione del config.plist o dei dsdt ma non ho idea di come fixare. Qualcuno potrebbe delucidarmi? In allegato la cartella EFI. Caratteristiche del PC: Gigabyte H170-HD3 (modello senza wifi) Intel Core i5-6600 8GB RAM DDR4 Niente scheda video dedicata, ci si affida alla HD530.

  17. macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 beta (17C60c)
  18. Hello everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster here. First of all, big thanks to each and everyone here for providing and advancing solutions, sharing knowledge and making it possible to have a f**king solid, reliable and all around working hackintosh! Just by reading through threads i was able to get a completely satisfying setup: Working sleep, audio, pm, usb3, handoff/continuity, imessage, you name it. Unfortunately recently I came across a new and rather unique problem: A couple of weeks ago I bought a new monitor, equipped with Nvidias G-Sync. To my knowledge this was only available on windows and perfectly acceptable because i use windows for games anyways and macOS primarily for work related stuff. Installing the release version of Sierra and the newest web drivers however shows a G-Sync tab in the Nvidia preference pane. But here begin the problems. If i tick the G-Sync box and (re)start the computer, the screen goes to black after the first boot stage (which for a brief period of time is expected behaviour in many configurations with nvidia cards i guess) but after that the monitor shows a no connected inputs message. These are a couple of ways i found out to still successfully boot Sierra: disable nvidia drivers completely (nv_disable=1, which leads to completely choppy graphics and an unusable system, with my 780ti at least) set to default os x driver in the nvidia preference pane (which leads to slightly reduced performance and no g-sync) Shutting off the monitor before (re)starting and only turning it on again after the os is booted up. (this is also the only way for me to enable G-Sync on mac os, indicated by red monitor led) Note: Only deactivating G-Sync but keeping Nvidias alternate drivers still results in the monitor going black. For os x 10.11, I used this guide to fix the second stage bootlogo showing up correctly. This in combination with the new monitor caused similar behaviour in 10.11. Not every but every other restart the screen stayed black. Removing these changes from clover config fixed this problem for 10.11. Note: G-Sync seems to be only available in 10.12 even with latest drivers in 10.11. in Sierra with default os drivers, the bootlogo and progress bar show up correctly anyways but the black screen, which forces a reset if i forgot to turn off the monitor beforehand is becoming a real annoyance. Not using nvidias alternate drivers and losing performance is also not an option in the long run. Things I have already tried: having an additional display connected changing the initial display output in bios. booting verbose, without cache (booting in safe mode works obviously because nvidia drivers do not load) (re)applying the guide from this topic. completely reinstalling nvidia drivers on windows and macOS side. (nvidia drivers and G-Sync setting on windows seem to have a slight impact on all this but i might be wrong..) modifying AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext's info.plist for iMac 14,2 similar to AGDPfix.app the automatic login settings in os x might also have an impact on this (at least on 10.11) I probably missed one or two things but either way i am pretty much out of ideas now. I could try another SMBIOS but with imessage working so well and iMac 14,2 being the best fit for my hardware this seems like unnecessary effort. Moreover, maybe because Sierra is still pretty new and G-Sync support for macOS is pretty new, i should give nvidia and apple more time. An update in a couple of weeks might fix this. But I think this is quite optimistic. I also don't want to completely rule out that this is my monitors fault. I really hope it is not because i bought it well over a month ago so if anyone has a similar but completely working setup, please let me know! Any suggestions on what i could try next are very welcome! If console or ioreg output, my dsdt, clover cfg or anything else might be of use for someone, please also let me know. Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading it!! Some more info: Bootloader: Clover (updated very recently) SMBIOS: iMac 14,2 OsxAptioFix2 driver DSDT patched with Pjalm's fixes for this board.
