    This is a patched version of an official vanilla kernel from El Capitan 10.11.0, allowing Z87 Haswell motherboards capable of booting without reboot loops or kernel panics. The following perl scripts have been applied to the vanilla kernel for 10.11.0: #1 perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel #2 perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel #3 perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|g' kernel I take no credit for the creation of the perl scripts used. Patches #1, #2, and #3 have been documented on this blog by the original owner here. Shout outs to Pike R. Alpha whose code the patches are based on, he lives here. Tested on EVGA Z87 FTW Please let me know if it works well for you so I can confirm the amount of success users are having. Thanks
  2. This thread is a walkthrough on how to install El Capitan. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS I wanna start off by thanking the following guys whose efforts inspired me to proceed in making this guide: stinga11 for his implementation of the FakeCPUID hack, rehabman for his kexts, ammulder for his Skylake Starter Guide, chris1111 and DwarfVador for their configuration setup ideas, Slice for Clover, toleda for his audio solution and vit9696 for his audio solution, and shout outs to Pike for the IOAPIC Fix and assisting me with applying his ssdtPRGen.sh script SSDT generation method. • MY SPECS: 1. Intel Pentium Processor G4500 2. ASUS Z170M-PLUS Micro ATX Motherboard 3. Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 512GB SSD 4. Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 5. HGST Travelstar 7K1000 1TB 2.5" 7200RPM HDD 6.

PNY GTX 960 XLR8 4GB 11. EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G1 750W PSU • WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 1. Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan [from Mac App Store] 2. A computer running an Intel Processor 3. Access to OS X on VMWare (for Windows), Mac, or Hackintosh 4. A supported graphics card 5. Clover v2.3k r3354 and up 6. A USB flash drive at least 8 GB 7. Update your system with the latest BIOS • STEP 1: BIOS SETTINGS 1. Start off by entering the BIOS and accessing Advanced Mode. Go to Exit to select 'Load Optimized Defaults'. 2. Go to Boot and disable 'Fast Boot' and go to CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to enable 'Launch CSM'. 3. Back out to Boot and scroll down to Secure Boot and access Key Management to disable 'Secure Boot State'. In order to do so you must clear any installed keys [delete each keys]. a. Access Secure Boot again and set OS Type to 'Other OS'. 4. Scroll down to Hard Drive BBS Priorities to set boot sequence of the available hard disks. 5. Go to Advanced → System Agent (SA) Configuration and disable 'VT-d'. 6. Scroll down to access Graphics Configuration and set 'Primary Display' to PCIE and disable 'iGPU Multi-Monitor'. 7. Back out to Advanced and scroll down to access APM Configuration → 'ErP Ready' and disable it [equates to "S3 only, Suspend to Ram"]; the rest of the options should be disabled by default. 8. Go to Advanced → CPU Configuration and disable 'Intel Virtualization Technology'. 9. Scroll down to CPU Power Management Configuration to disable 'CFG lock'. 10. Go to Advanced → Onboard Devices Configuration and turn off 'Serial Port Configuration' and 'Parallel Port Configuration'. 11. Go to Advanced → USB Configuration and enable 'XHCI Hand-off'. 12. [Optional] Go to Ai Tweaker → Scroll down to 'DRAM Frequency' and set it to the specified frequency of your memory. 13. [Optional] Go to Tool → ASUS Overclocking Profile to save your BIOS settings profile [to a USB stick]. 14. Go to Exit, 'Save Changes & Reset'. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF EL CAPITAN 10.11 1. Clover and the OS X installer are placed on separate partitions on the USB stick. This guide will use 'diskutil list' in Terminal instead of Disk Utility to format the USB with GPT partitioning for Clover UEFI support. 2. You must determine its disk identifier before you can partition the USB. Plug the USB stick into a Mac (or Hackintosh), run Terminal and type 'diskutil list'. The following screenshot will serve as a reference: As you can see the the USB stick’s identifier is /dev/disk2. 3. Type the following entry into Terminal to format the USB stick (two partitions, via GPT): diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 1 GPT HFS+J "OS X" R During the process the following occurred: /dev/disk2 GPT partitioning initiated by default EFI was automatically created remainder "OS X", HFS+J is partitioned 4. It resulted in the following screenshot: Close Terminal 5. We need to download and install the latest version of Clover (here) on the USB stick. a. Run the pkg, "Change Install Location" by selecting "OS X" (partition name) as the target of the install. Use the following settings below: Make sure that it shows "Installation Complete." NOTE: When installing to HDD select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and/or "Install all RC scripts on all other boot volumes" and "Install Clover Preference Pane". 6. You must copy your kexts to the EFI/ Clover folder. You can use EFI Mounter v3 when necessary to mount the EFI partition, just use "diskutil list" first to ensure you chose the right one for the USB stick. a. Remove EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, leaving just '10.11' and 'Other'. b. Copy the required kexts FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement 1.0.0d2, VoodooPS2Controller.kext, and your ethernet kext (Intel I219-V) IntelMausiEthernet-V2.1.0d5 or AppleIntelE1000e 3.3.1 to the following directory: /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.11. NOTE: If you are having trouble getting Ethernet to work you can also try copying IONetworkingFamily.kext from S/L/E to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.11 with your networking kext. 7. We must apply the following mandatory patches: a. IOAPIC Fix. Without this fix most things such as USB, SATA, ethernet, many PCI devices, sound devices, etc will not work. ○ Use a text editor or a plist editor like PlistEdit Pro to modify your config.plist manually. Add this <dict> entry to EFI/CLOVER/config.plist in the KextsToPatch array: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Skylake APIC fix, discovered by Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Find</key> <data> wegQD7bw </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAPIC</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> vhcAAACQ </data> </dict> </array> b. FakeCPUID patch. Since the Pentium is not supported in 10.11, the following CPUID will convert it into an Ivy Bridge CPU. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>FakeCPUID</key> <string>0x0306A0</string> <key>KextsToPatch</key> </dict> or [Lynnfield] <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>FakeCPUID</key> <string>0x0106E0</string> <key>KextsToPatch</key> </dict> c. USB patch. It is required to raise the port limit in order to boot the USB installer. Otherwise garbled text with the message "Still waiting for root device" and a circle with a slash in the middle will appear onscreen. This process involves installing USBInjectAll.kext as well. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change 15 port limit to 30 in AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Find</key> <data> g72M/v//EA== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> g72M/v//Hw== </data> </dict> </array> Be sure to copy USBInjectAll.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.11. d. SMBIOS. With the config file still opened in your text/plist editor, scroll down to SMBIOS section to add the following SMBIOS system definition: <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> <key>Trust</key> <false/> </dict> NOTE: Macmini6,2, iMac13,2 and iMac13,1 support speedstep. You can also do this using Clover Configurator: In the SMBIOS section, click the magic wand to select a SMBIOS relevant to your hardware (e.g. iMac14,2) – and close the screen and File/Save. e. GUI. Here you indicate the theme you want to use that you installed by entering the title in the string. I chose to use "random" as shown below: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>DoubleClick</key> <integer>500</integer> <key>Enabled</key> <true/> <key>Mirror</key> <false/> <key>Speed</key> <integer>8</integer> </dict> <key>Scan</key> <true/> <key>Theme</key> <string>random</string> </dict> f. Boot Flag. NVIDIA graphics cards especially 'Maxwell' currently lack support natively in OS X. To correct this problem in order to boot the installer it requires "nv_disable=1". In addition to that, it is necessary to use "-v" to monitor if any problems arise. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v nv_disable=1</string> </dict> g. SIP. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) (reference sources 1, 2, & 3) in 10.11 which restricts users from modifying system folders/files, and as a result it locks down system folders and files against hacks and root attacks, making the system safer. However, SIP must be disabled in order to install anything (i.e., kexts) into protected system folders. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x3</string> </dict> h. Audio Fix. This Skylake board comes with a Realtek ALC887 audio chip. Realtek onboard audio device has been changed in ACPI to 'HDAS'. In order to use toleda's CloverALC (discussed further in this guide), you must add the following patch in the config.plist: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>Patches</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Rename HDAS to HDEF</string> <key>Find</key> <data> SERBUw== </data> <key>Replace</key> <data> SERFRg== </data> </dict> </array> 8. Preparing OS X partition. Download OS X v10.11.0 (15A284) El Capitan [Mac App Store]; "Install OS X El Capitan" will be in /Applications. a. Right-click "Install OS X El Capitan" → Show Package Contents → Contents → ShareSupport → Double click to mount "InstallESD.dmg". b. Once "OS X Install ESD" appears, use ShowHiddenFiles to show hidden files. c. Now you will see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... d. Open Disk Utility. Select and highlight the volume "OS X Base System", click "Restore" at the top-right, drag the volume into "Source" field, and drag the USB [OS X] partition (you already created) to the "Destination" field where you will restore the image: click the "Restore" button then "Erase"... e. After the process is complete, you'll now have (2) "OS X Base System" present in Finder. Eject the image "BaseSystem.dmg" and close Disk Utility. f. On the remaining volume "OS X Base System" (USB stick), go to System/Installation and delete Packages symlink. g. Open "OS X Install ESD" in a new Finder window, and copy the Packages folder to System/Installation folder inside "OS X Base System". h. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist, BaseSystem.dmg, AppleDiagnostics.chunklist, and AppleDiagnostics.dmg from "OS X Install ESD" and copy it to the volume root. i. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17+ to extract "kernel" from "OS X Install ESD/Packages/Essential.pkg [/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. Or download the vanilla version here. j. Delete following kexts from System/Library/Extensions/: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext. k. Use ShowHiddenFiles to hide the hidden files, and quit the application. l. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install El Capitan on the hard disk of choice. m. Once installer is finished, it will automatically restart the system. n. Now reboot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed El Capitan at the boot menu screen and use boot flag nv_disable=1 to log in. • STEP 3: Mac OS X 10.11 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the Mac OS X Welcome screen. a. Select your country then click "right arrow" to go to the next screen. b. Select "My computer does not connect to the Internet." c. Select "Don’t transfer any information now." d. Do not "Enable Location Services on this Mac" e. Agree to "Terms and Conditions." f. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. g. Confirm "Diagnostics & Usage" h. Wait a moment for the OS X desktop to load. i. When prompted to back up any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: Mac OS X 10.11 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. Mount the EFI partition of the USB stick with EFI Mounter v3 and copy the 'EFI' folder to the EFI partition of El Capitan boot disk. 2. Install Clover v2.3k on the El Capitan install HDD partition you plan to boot from. In addition to the settings configured earlier, select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and "Install Clover Preference Pane" when installing to the HDD. Installing RC scripts enables nvram variables required for iCloud and other services. It processes logs that are located in /Library/Logs/CloverEFI. You can also type bdmesg > Desktop/boot.txt in Terminal to get them manually. 3. Edit the config.plist from your boot disk in EFI/CLOVER/ by adding the following <dict> entries: a. Change boot flag to "nvda_drv=1" without "-v" <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>nv_drv=1</string> </dict> NOTE: Ensure you have updated to the latest version FakeSMC kext. If your 'hack' happens to instant reboot loop randomly like mine did, to fix it I added cpus=1 in the boot arguments in Clover config.plist. Boot arguments: nvda_drv=1 cpus=1 SMBIOS: iMac14,2 system definition Situations may vary when accessing 10.11 with GTX 960 Video output should be connected through HDMI b. Hide UEFI partitions. To hide internal UEFI (i.e., "Boot Windows from Recovery", "Boot Windows from EFI") you have to use Scan/Legacy=false: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Scan</key> <dict> <key>Legacy</key> <false/> </dict> c. Designate name of boot menu entries (Renaming Mac/Windows). In the Clover bootloader menu you will notice all EFI Windows partitions labeled "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI [or SYSTEM]". The Windows partition is called EFI but there's also a Mac partition called EFI which is hidden by default in the Clover boot menu so it's a nonfactor. The volume names are what Clover shows by default. In order to change what the Clover boot menu shows your volume name to be you will have to specify its details under GUI/Custom/Entries section in your config.plist. There are 3 <key> tags necessary to edit in this section: Volume, FullTitle, and Type. You can refer to my personal settings below for help. E.g., in my config.plist, my OS X volume is called "ELCAP" because that's what I named the partition I installed OS X on. It can also be seen as a bootloader screen entry as "Boot Mac OS X from XXXXXXXX" where XXXXXXXX is the volume name. "FullTitle" is the name you want the entry to say, i.e.: OS X 10.11 El Capitan. "Type" is where you indicate what type of OS it is, i.e.: OSX (or Windows). Tags such as "Hidden" and "Disabled" are self-explanatory, while the "NoCaches" tag designates whether you want to boot without caches. NOTE: Adding "InjectKexts" causes infinite loading on the Apple logo screen. NOTE: Although you’re able to indicate if the "VolumeType" you are using is Internal, External, Optical or FireWire, I have found through tests that after adding the "VolumeType" tag for the OS X volume in the config.plist followed by restarting my system, it would initiate a constant reboot loop, making my system incapable POSTing and requiring a CMOS reset to fix: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Custom</key> <dict> <key>Entries</key> <array> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>EFI</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 10</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>ELCAP</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>OS X 10.11 El Capitan</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>InjectKexts</key> <false/> <key>NoCaches</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>OSX</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> </array> </dict> d. Remove Recovery partition. Deleting and merging a partition with 'diskutil' from the command line is the most precise method to remove the partition since it targets the recovery disk directly and merges it with the full El Capitan partition. ○ Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list ○ This will print out your drives partition scheme and look something like this: ○ Look for "Recovery HD" and see which identifier it is uses. In this screenshot it’s disk2s3. ○ To remove that partition we use the following command (you can also use the volume name): diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ Blank /dev/disk2s3 ○ The partition will be erased. You’ll now have a blank partition sitting around, so you’ll want to merge that with your other El Capitan partition: diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ ELCAP disk2s2 disk2s3 ○ This will merge the two partitions, with disk2s2 absorbing the space from disk2s3 and expanding, it causes data loss so don’t expect this to preserve anything. 4. 10.11.0 breaks compatibility with native graphics kexts so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 flag. a. Download and install NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.02f02 to enable NVIDIA Graphics Cards because they won't work OOB without them. NOTE: Remember to go to the NVIDIA Driver Manager menu bar at the top, change the settings to use Web drivers. Changes will take effect after restart. 5. Reboot without the USB installer and choose the El Capitan boot disk. 6. Download CUDA 7.5.20 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.11.0 support and install. 7. [OPTION 1] Install AppleALC to enable native audio by injecting the layout id supported for ALC887 through dynamic patching without modifying any kexts. Audio will no longer be affected after each OS X update and SIP can remain enabled. More details here. NOTE: AppleHDA must be native, original and unpatched. a. Mount EFI partition and add the following entry under Devices/Audio in the config.plist to inject working layout id 11 (or 13 or 1). <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>11</integer> </dict> b. Download the latest version of AppleALC and copy it to CLOVER/kexts/10.11 or CLOVER/kexts/Other. NOTE: Rebuild kext cache if you have removed a modded AppleHDA to replace it with a native one by using Kext Utility or 'force rebuild cache' in Terminal: sudo –s sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions 8. [OPTION 2] Install the following patch associated with Realtek ALC887 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda): a. Mount EFI partition, verify "Disable SIP" entry CsrActiveConfig=0x3 is in config.plist. b. Download audio_cloverALC-110.command.zip and extract "audio_cloverALC-110_v1.0q10.command". c. No edits made to any native AppleHDA.kext file, 2-4 files added to Resources folder. NOTE: There may be noticeable pops before starting playback which is caused by OS X putting the audio codec to sleep. Disable AFGLowPowerState in config.plist with following <dict> entry: <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> </dict> <key>AFGLowPowerState</key> <false/> </dict> If popping is still exists after using the method above, try using antipop. NOTE: There may be noticeable distortion after around 2 minutes of audio playback. Update to the latest version of Clover (or downgrade to ver. 3354) and add UseARTFrequency=false entry in the config.plist: <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>UseARTFrequency</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> 9. Create a DSDT??? (More to come later) 10. [OPTION 1] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download Pike's ssdtPRGen.sh script which should auto-copy into your home directory, 'Volumes/Users/<username>' folder. Open Terminal and type the following: curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh b. Next, set the execute/search bits: chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh c. Run ssdtPRGen.sh script for first time without any arguments and let it download all the data that you need: ./ssdtPRGen.sh d. The Skylake.cfg with Pentium information should have already downloaded. e. Once finished you will have the ssdt.aml on the ~/library/ssdtPRGen/. Move it to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. NOTE: If you come across issues try the following: ○ Use Terminal to ensure Skylake.cfg is in the 'Data' folder by typing: open ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data ○ You can remove any previously generated and downloaded script file by typing: sudo rm -R ~/Library/ssdtPRGen ○ You can rerun another freshly downloaded ssdtPRGen.sh script with your processor type: ./ssdtPRGen.sh ○ For additional help see also: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -help 11. [OPTION 2] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download the Pike’s script v14.1 (modified for i-core processors) and put it on your desktop. Use it only for the PC it is running from. The script reads some information specific about your CPU and its number of cores. b. Open Terminal and type "sudo" then leave a space and drag the script file into the Terminal window then leave a space and type in the Turbo Speed (Maximum Turbo Frequency) for your processor and then press enter. e.g., Intel Pentium G4500 type code: sudo /Users/"YourUsername"/Desktop/ssdtPRGen.sh -TURBO 3500 Type your password when prompted and press Enter. c. Ignore the following "Error: Unknown processor model ..." since the CPU is unsupported. d. A decompiled file called SSDT.aml will generate in a hidden folder "tmp". Type "open /tmp" (no quotations) to reveal its location. e. Mount EFI using EFI Mounter v3 and place SSDT.aml into /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ 12. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Mount the EFI partition to copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.11 folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.19.1406 Binaries (with FakeSMC): Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. ○ Install iStat Pro 4.92 r2, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. • STEP 5: Updating to 10.11.4 1. Download and install OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 Combo Update. 2. After restarting, booting from the El Capitan partition presents the following error: OsxAptioFixDrv: Error - requested memory exceeds our allocated relocation block a. This is caused by the lack of support for the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 in 10.11.4 which is intended to fix memory map issues on most UEFI systems, mainly in AMI BIOS. b. Plug the USB installer into another Mac (or Hackintosh) and reinstall the latest version of Clover (here) on the USB stick. Be sure to select the checkbox OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 instead of OsxAptioFixDrv-64. c. Once it completes, mount EFI of the USB stick using EFI Mounter v3 and remove OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/. 3. Reboot using the USB installer and choose the El Capitan install drive. Mount EFI of the El Capitan partition and remove OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi and copy OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi from the USB stick to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/. 4. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-110.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. 5. Accept the popup window that prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.06f01 to proceed. Download CUDA 7.5.26 drivers needed for 10.11.4 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot. • STEP 6: Updating to 10.11.5 1. Download and install OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 Combo Update. 2. After restarting, accept the popup window that prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.10f01 to proceed. 3. Download CUDA 7.5.29 drivers needed for 10.11.5 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot. 4. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-110.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. • STEP 7: Updating to 10.11.6 1. Download and install OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 Combo Update. 2. After restarting, accept the popup window that prompts you to download and install the latest NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.15f01 / NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.15f02 to proceed. 3.

  3. My guide is a constant WIP... I have already installed El Capitan on my system, but I don't have it fully set up yet with all the supported kexts. Once I finish, I will update this thread with a fully detailed guide. I appreciate your patience. ---EDIT--- UPDATE 1/17/2016 From my experience, as of right now El Capitan is in a pretty unstable state to function or for me to implement as a daily workstation. I use my 10.11 install for experimental purposes only so I recommend anyone following this guide to do the same. In no way can I be held responsible for any mishap as a result. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS • HERE ARE MY SPECS: 1. Intel Core i7-4770K (De-lidded) 2. EVGA Z87 FTW (ATX) 3. Silverstone SST-ST1200-G Evolution Strider Gold 1200W 4. Noctua NH-U12S 5. ASUS BW-12B1ST 6. Western Digital VelociRaptor 600GB 7. OCZ Vertex 4 512 GB 8. Patriot Dual Bay 2.5" SATA 3.5" drive bay (for SSD) 9. EVGA GeForce GTX680 SC 10.Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 2400MHz 11. My case: Modified Apple Powermac G5 • WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 1. Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan [from Mac App Store] 2. A computer running an Intel Processor 3. Access to OS X on VMWare (for Windows), Mac, or Hackintosh 4. A supported graphics card 5. Enoch rev. 2779 and up 6. A USB flash drive at least 8 GB 7. Update to the latest BIOS • STEP 1: BIOS SETTINGS 1. AHCI mode and CD/DVD first boot priority are set in the BIOS by default. Ensure your settings match these in your Z87 BIOS: a. Go to ADVANCED→ SATA Configuration→ All settings should set at default; notice that your disks won't show up here if they're connected to black Marvell SATA ports b. Go to BOOT→ Speaker Beep; switch to "Off." Continue to Set Boot Priority→ Check if CD/DVD is 1st Boot; Go to Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities to set the boot sequence of the available hard disks. c. Go to ADVANCED→ ACPI Settings→ ACPI Sleep State must be S3 only (Suspend to RAM); d. Go to ADVANCED→ Graphics Configuration→ Disable internal graphics to prevent the potential following kernel panic: panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff8000379458)… expected 0xdeadbeeddeadbeef… e. Go to OVERCLOCK→ CPU Configuration; there is no option for Vt-d, so disable Intel Virtualization Technology (during installation). f. Go to ADVANCED→ USB Configuration; XHCI Mode = Disabled, XHCI Hand-off = Enabled, EHCI Hand-off = Enabled. [Disregard what's on pic] g. [OPTIONAL] Go to MEMORY; Under Memory Multiplier Configuration, set Performance Memory Profiles to XMP Profile 1. Save and Reset. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF EL CAPITAN 10.11 1. Download OS X v10.11.0 (15A284) El Capitan [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install OS X El Capitan" → Show Package Contents → Contents → ShareSupport → Double click to mount "InstallESD.dmg". 2. Once "OS X Install ESD" appears, use ShowHiddenFiles to show hidden files. 3. Now you will see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... Get prepared to use the USB stick with at least 8GB. 4. Open Disk Utility, and format the USB stick by highlighting its icon on the left and clicking the Partition tab, click Current, and choose 1 Partition. 5. Click Options... Choose Master Boot Record. No need to name it (the default's OK), choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as its format type. Click Apply then Partition. 6. Select and highlight the volume "OS X Base System", click "Restore" at the top-right, drag the volume into "Source" field, and drag the USB [untitled] partition (you just created) to the "Destination" field where you will restore the image: click "Restore" then "Erase"... 7. After the process is complete, you'll now have (2) "OS X Base System" present in Finder. Eject the image "BaseSystem.dmg" and close Disk Utility. 8. On the remaining volume "OS X Base System" (USB stick), go to System/Installation and delete Packages symlink. 9. Open "OS X Install ESD" in a new Finder window, and copy the Packages folder to System/Installation folder inside "OS X Base System". 10. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist, BaseSystem.dmg, AppleDiagnostics.chunklist, and AppleDiagnostics.dmg from "OS X Install ESD" and copy it to the volume root. 11. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17 to extract "kernel" from "OS X Install ESD/Packages/Essential.pkg [/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. 12. CPU power management is handled directly by the BIOS and not with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Booting from the USB installer on a Haswell system will be followed by an instant reboot. To resolve the early reboot problem for Haswell: a. Patch the vanilla kernel located on your USB installer: Drag and copy kernel from the USB installer to the desktop. Open Terminal and type: cd ~/Desktop Apply the following perl script by copying and pasting into Terminal: #1: perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel #2: perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel #3: perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|g' kernel b. Replace the kernel with the patched version on your USB installer. 13. Now copy both NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, FakeSMC.kext (from Extra_MacPro3,1.zip), and TRACKPAD.SYNAPTIC-GESTURE (ApplePS2Controller.kext & AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext) into System/Library/Extensions of "OS X Base System". 14. Delete following kexts from System/Library/Extensions/: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext 15. Extract OSInstaller(MBR)+OSInstall.mpkg(10.11.0.15A284), and copy and replace OSInstall.mpkg [patched for MBR] into System/Installation/Packages, and copy and replace OSInstaller [patched for MBR] into System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OSInstaller.framework/Versions/A/OSInstaller folder. 16. Download and install Enoch rev. 2779. Remember to click on "Change Install Location" and select the USB stick ("OS X Base System") as destination, or they will be installed on the running system. a. IMPORTANT: It is imperative that you create a Kernel.plist in the Extra folder and add the following flag: KernelBooter_Kext=Yes. This can also be done when installing Enoch Bootloader by selecting the option as shown in the following screenshot: b. Unzip the Extra_MacPro3,1 zip file and drag the Extra folder to the root of USB boot. c. Add flag CsrActiveConfig=103 (Hex 0x67:01100111) to Boot.plist as: <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>103</string> NOTE: This disables SIP; Refer to Step 4 #3. 17. Use ShowHiddenFiles to hide the hidden files, and quit the application. 18. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install El Capitan on the hard disk of choice. 19. Once installer is finished, it will automatically restart the system. Boot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed El Capitan. 20. After installing 10.11, the drive it's on will hold a vanilla kernel. You will need to replace it with the patched version to prevent the instant reboot problem from reoccurring. Copy over a patched kernel onto the root of a secondary USB stick. Use the USB installer to access Terminal and type the following commands: a. Verify secondary USB stick location: diskutil list b. Mount it: diskutil mount /dev/diskXsY e.g.: diskutil mount /dev/disk2s1 Terminal will confirm the name of the disk mounted c. Select directory of USB stick's root: cd /Volumes/USBStick/ e.g.: cd /Volumes/"NO NAME"/ d. Copy over patched kernel cp kernel "/Volumes/NameOfOSXDisk/System/Library/Kernels/kernel" e.g.: cp kernel "/Volumes/ELCAP/System/Library/Kernels/kernel" 21. Now reboot using the USB installer and select the El Capitan install drive at the boot menu screen and type kernel boot flag nv_disable=1 to log in or it will result in 'No Display' signal. • STEP 3: Mac OS X 10.11 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the Mac OS X Welcome screen. a. Select your country then click "right arrow" to go to the next screen. b. Select "My computer does not connect to the Internet." c. Select "Don’t transfer any information now." d. Do not "Enable Location Services on this Mac" e. Agree to "Terms and Conditions." f. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. g. Confirm "Diagnostics & Usage" h. Wait a moment for the OS X desktop to load. i. When prompted to back up any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: Mac OS X 10.11 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. Install Enoch rev. 2795 on the El Capitan install partition you plan to boot from. 2. Copy the Extra folder from the USB stick to the root El Capitan partition. 3. Edit the Boot.plist in the Extra folder with the following lines: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>3</string> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EHCIacquire</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>ForceHPET</key> <string>No</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>>/System/Library/Kernels/kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f npci=0x2000 nvda_drv=1</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>1</string> <key>PCIRoot</key> <string>1</string> <key>Rescan</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>Default</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> <key>UHCIreset</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>USBBusFix</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Wake</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist> Remember to remove any variation of the following lines: <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>Extra/smbios.plist</string> or: <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>smbios.plist</string> It restores your correct system profile instead of the "iMac Summer 2001/SOMESRLNUMBER" model. The bootloader automatically reads the Smbios.plist in the Extra folder by default. Boot flag kext-dev-mode=1 is no longer required for OS X 10.11 El Capitan to load unsigned kexts. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) (reference sources 1, 2, & 3) in 10.11 which restricts users from modifying system folders/files, and as a result it locks down system folders and files against hacks and root attacks, making the system safer. When rebuilding kernel cache on a Hackintosh, SIP must be disabled in order to install anything to protected system folders. By adjusting CsrAactiveConfig in Boot.plist, you can to allow unsigned kexts in cache and install to protected folders and re-enable SIP after everything is set. To disable SIP completely: <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>103</string> To disable SIP partially (loads unsigned kexts): <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>3</string> 4. Edit the kernel.plist in the Extra folder with the following lines: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>KernelBooter_kexts</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>KernelHaswell</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>KernelLapicError</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>KernelLapicVersion</key> <string>No</string> <key>KernelPm</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>KernelSSE3</key> <string>No</string> <key>KernelcpuFamily</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> 5. Use Chameleon Wizard 4.3.2 to generate new SMBios.plist with a VALID serial. You can use the following lines for your SMBios.plist: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMbiosdate</key> <string>06/12/13</string> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MP61.88Z.0116.B04.1312061508</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>Mac Pro</string> <key>SMmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMmaximalclock</key> <string>3500</string> <key>SMmemmanufacturer</key> <string>Corsair</string> <key>SMmempart_1</key> <string>999999999999</string> <key>SMmemserial_1</key> <string>123456789</string> <key>SMmemspeed</key> <string>2400</string> <key>SMmemtype</key> <string>DDR3:36</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro6,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>CXXXXXXXXXX</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> </plist> 6. 10.11.0 breaks compatibility with native graphics kexts so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 kernel flag. a. All of the graphics kexts need to be moved for a later patch. Open Terminal, run the following commands: sudo –s mkdir /kext_backup cd /System/Library/Extensions mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /kext_backup b. Copy modded AppleGraphicsControl.kext into S/L/E and replace original and use Kext Utility to repair permissions. 7. Install NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.02f02 to enable NVIDIA Graphics Cards because they won't work OOB without them. NOTE: Remember to go to the NVIDIA Driver Manager menu bar at the top, change the settings to use Web drivers. Changes will take effect after restart. 8. Reboot using the USB installer and choose the El Capitan install drive. 9. Download CUDA 7.5.20 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.11.0 support and install. 10. Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download Pike’s script (modified for i-core processors) and put it on your desktop. Use it only for the PC it is running from. The script reads some information specific about your CPU and its number of cores. b. Open Terminal and type "sudo" then leave a space and drag the script file into the Terminal window then leave a space and type in the Turbo Speed (Maximum Turbo Frequency) for your processor and then press enter. e.g., i7-980 type code: sudo /Users/"YourUsername"/Desktop/ssdtPRGen.sh -TURBO 3600 Type your password when prompted and press Enter. c. A decompiled file called SSDT.aml will generate in a hidden folder "tmp". Type "open /tmp" (no quotations) to reveal its location and place it into your Extra folder. d. Make sure your Boot.plist has GeneratePStates/GenerateCStates to Yes and just set DropSSDT to Yes. It makes the generic SSDT match the processor TDP and desired top turbo freq. [OS X 10.11.0 is too unstable. -v boot flag has been required at random times in order to boot. OS X refuses to recognize any unsigned (custom) kexts that have been installed in E/E or S/L/E regardless of SIP being fully disabled, causing KP. INSTALL OS X UPDATE 10.11.1] • STEP 5: Updating to 10.11.1 1. Download OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 Update, install, and reboot. 2. 10.11.1 restores the vanilla kernel, causing the early reboot issue that prevents you from accessing Yosemite. Download the patched kernel for 10.11.1 and replace it with the version located on the root of the OS X installation disk. Follow Step 2 #20. 3. Booting into El Cap will cause the following error: **** [iOBluetoothHCIController] [searchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport! Boot using the flag -v nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=No to access El Cap. Allow update to continue. a. Skip signing in with your Apple ID. 4. 10.11.1 breaks compatibility with native graphics kexts so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 kernel flag. All of the graphics kexts need to be moved for a later patch. Open Terminal, run the following commands: sudo -s mkdir /kext_backup cd /System/Library/Extensions mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /kext_backup 5. After reboot, a popup window prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.03f02 to proceed. a. Copy modded AppleGraphicsControl.kext into S/L/E and replace original and repair permissions. 6. Download CUDA 7.5.21 drivers needed for 10.11.1 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot with -v flag. [OS X 10.11.1 is too unstable. -v boot flag has been required to use each time you boot and numerous attempts maybe necessary to access OS X. OS X can potentially freeze and KP during a session, forcing you to reboot. INSTALL OS X UPDATE 10.11.2] • STEP 6: Updating to 10.11.2 1. Download and install OS X El Capitan 10.11.2 Combo Update. 2. 10.11.2 restores the vanilla kernel, causing the early reboot issue that prevents you from accessing Yosemite. Download the patched kernel for 10.11.2 and replace it with the version located on the root of the OS X installation disk. Follow Step 2 #20. 3. 10.11.2 breaks compatibility with native graphics kexts so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 kernel flag. All of the graphics kexts need to be moved for a later patch. Open Terminal, run the following commands: sudo -s mkdir /kext_backup cd /System/Library/Extensions mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /kext_backup 4. After reboot, a popup window prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 346.03.04f02 to proceed. a. Copy modded AppleGraphicsControl.kext into S/L/E and replace original and repair permissions. 5. Download CUDA 7.5.22 drivers needed for 10.11.2 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot with -v flag on Z87. NOTE: No graphics acceleration after installing NVIDIA Web Drivers for OS X. The only resolution available is 1024x1280. 6. Install OS X El Capitan Recovery Update 1.0. Extra_MacPro3,1.zip
  4. Hello, I will explain how i have installed Os X EL Capitan 10.11 on HP ElibteBook 820 G2. Before start this installation, or buy this computer, you have to know that it's hard to find a compatible wifi/BT module. This guide still not 100% perfect. This allow to install: - El Capitan Public Beta 1 (10.11.0) - El Capitan Public Beta 2 and above (10.11.0) Yosemite 10.10.x doesn't support Broadwell processor and so can't be installed. Working: - Wifi and Bluetooth doesn't work, you have to find a compatible wifi/bt card with NGFF M2 slot. this one is compatible: Dell DW1560 part code: 6xRYC - SD card reader. - Display port on the dock station Needed materials: - a mac or hackintosh - usb drive - external hard drive (if you do fusion on post-install) Other solution: You can use HP Probook Installer Clover Edition 6.4 or up to install El Capitan. It doesn't add anything more than working with my guide. It will define you mac as a MacBookAir7,2. 1/Create Bootable USB Installer 2/ Configurer le Bios 3/ Installer le système Mac sur le disque dur 4/ post installation 5/ DSDT 6/ SSDT. 7/ Fusion drive 8/ ENJOY !! 9/ Ressources and thanks All greatings to Rehabman
