  1. Hi guys! I'm having problem with my install. I cannot boot to the install since i'm getting KP ( Unable to find driver ACPI ). I'm not really sure will i need to patch my bios for to get it work or what? I'm using Clover and i've tried to boot with nv_disable=1 since i have GTX 970. So i think it's not my graphics card which is causing this problem. Specs: - Intel i7 4770k - Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 5 - Asus Strix GTX 970 - Kingston HyperX 1600MHz 2x 4GB If more info needed just ask! Thanks in advance!
  2. Hey guys! This is my first post, so please tolerate my noobishness. I will preface by saying that I've browsed and searched every forum for hours to try and find a solution. Here's my build: Intel i7 4770k (3.5GHz) Ga Z87 OC Mobo EVGA GTX 770 SC w/ACX Cooling 12GB GSkill Sniper 1600Mhz RAM (Waiting on another 4GB stick) Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD (Primary Drive - Running Win7) 1.5TB WD Black - (I have this set up with a 1TB FAT data partition between Windows and OSX + a 500GB partition for OSX) Alright, down to the dirty work.. I have Mavericks loaded with Ethernet and audio working, but graphics is a {censored} shoot. Most of what I've read validates that my card should just work right out the box. I did have to move all the kexts related to intel drivers into a backup folder because it was preventing boot. Here's what I've tried. Nvidia CUDA drivers using pandora's box to load generic nVidia support I have my BIOS set to Init Display First PCI -x -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=0 PCiRootUID=1 cpus=1 My system does recognize a nvidia card (7mb) but I have no graphics acceleration what-so-ever. I'm so confused.. Anything helps! Thank you in advance
  3. Hola, les pido ayuda con clover, Tengo windows 10 instalado en UEFI y instale yosemite 10.10 con Clover_v2.3k_r3253. Mis particiones ( 1 disco de 1tb) 566 mb EFI 299.45 GB Windows 10 199.39 GB YOSEMITE 620 MB RECOVERY HD(YOSEMITE) 431.51 GB Datos MI pc z87x-ud3h 4770k RAM KINGSTON 8GB 1 TB hdd ASUS gtx 970 Despues de instalar yosemite y en la primera reiniciada yosemite modifico mi BIOS para que no me reconociera los usb UEFI, ademas se agrego una entrada de nombre MAC OSX a las opciones de booteo, la unica manera que encontre para solucionarlo fue flasheando la Bios. Volvi a instalar yosemite esta vez solo se agrego a la entrada de booteo. Al entrar al escritorio de Yosemite hice la post instalacion. El problema ahora es que no consigo que windows me inicie con clover, elijo la particion de windows y aparece la animacion de cargar, acto seguido la pantalla se pone negra y no detecta ninguna coneccion pero la pc sigue prendida, ni siquiera arranca Windows eligiendo bootear desde "WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER" en la bios, tengo que eliminar clover de la bios y recien me inicia Windows normalmente. Gracias.
  4. Hi guys, I've built and got running my latest build on 10.8.5 - all is well. It's snappy, seems to good give performance in games, and whilst rendering. However when I was researching what parts to buy, I came across a lot of Geekbench scores (for 10.8.5) that are a lot higher than mine. Whilst it's not the end of the world that I have a "low" geekbench score and this build knocks the socks off my old 10.6 setup, I'm just a little disappointed! I'll put as much info below as I can - does anyone have any ideas as to why my score is seemingly a lot lower than other similar/identical setups? I've seen reports of scores in the 17k range for no-overclock builds using same motherboard, cpu, and OS version... For the build, I followed acronator's guide here. Geekbench Score (64bit) Single-core: 3630 Multi-core: 14724 Specs Z87x-UD4h i7 4770k (no overclock) 16GB Vengence RAM GTX770 (Gigabyte Windforce 2GB) SMBios: iMac13,2 Kexts FakeSMC (with plugins, v.5.3.820) HDAEnabler1 ACPISensors CPUSensors GPUSensors LPCSensors GenericUSBXHCI AppleIntelE1000e Boot: Chameleon 2266 GUI=Yes EthernetBuiltIn=Yes GeneratePStates=Yes GenerateCStates=Yes Bios Loaded "Optimized defaults", the applied settings as per acronator's post above. Thanks!
  5. First Post. First Hackintosh. First Vanilla Install. Took a few tries but now the system is up and running smoothly and blazing fast. Love it. System Specs 
Intel Core i7 4770k Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H (BIOS F7) MSI GTX 660 OCZ Vertex 3 SSD All other peripherals pretty much standard. I already had Windows up and running on another HDD. 1. BIOS Settings - Disabled all HDDs except the drive for Mac installation - Ensured that SATA controllers were set to AHCI and not IDE - Disabled Onboard Video (Monitors are connected to the GTX 660) - Intel Virtualization Disabled - XHCI Auto - XHCI & EHCI handoffs set to enabled - No other changes 2. Preparing the USB Installer I used this guide : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/ It is the best out there for a plain vanilla install. Followed it closely but deviated from the process a bit while patching the installer (Step 2C onwards). - Did not use NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - Downloaded FakeSMC.kext v5.3.820 by kozlek with autoupdate disabled - Downloaded AppleIntelE1000e.kext v2.5.4c by hnak for ethernet - Downloaded GenericUSBXHCI.kext v1.2.6d2 by Zenith432 for USB 3.0 - Copied all three files to /System/Library/Extensions/ folder of the USB drive [ Attached all three Kexts to this post - KEXTs.zip] - Followed the remaining steps in Step 2C of the guide above. - Installed Chameleon 2.2svn r2255 to make the USB drive bootable (Newer versions of Chameleon 2.2 caused issues for me so I would advise you stick with r2255). - Used Chameleon Wizard and used iMac 13.2 profile in it to generate my SMBios.plist and placed it in the Extra folder of USB. - Created an Org.chameleon.Boot.plist file for the USB Installer with the following arguments and placed it in the Extra folder of the USB drive. [ Attached to this post Org.chameleon.Boot.plist-USB.zip ] -v -f dart=0
 GraphicsEnabler=No EthernetBuiltIn=Yes RestartFix=No 3. Installation USB booted up and installation went smoothly. Once it was complete, restarted and booted once again into the USB and launched the Terminal Utility of the installer to copy the above 3 kexts into the installation with the following commands: cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/“Your Mac Partition Name”/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelE1000e.kext /Volumes/"Your Mac Partition Name"/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/GenericUSBXHCI.kext /Volumes/"Your Mac Partition Name"/System/Library/Extensions/ reboot (If your Mac OS partition has a spaces in the name keep the quotes in the above commands). Restarted system and this time booted into OS X installation. Ethernet and USB 3.0 working (Tested speeds). Audio not working. 4. Post Installation & Audio Fix Installing Chamelon on Mac Partition - Installed Chameleon 2.2svn r2255 to the Mac Partition using Chameleon Wizard - Created a folder called Extra in the root of the Mac partition and copied into this the SMBios.plist file from the /USB/Extra folder - Created an Org.chameleon.Boot.plist file for the OS with the following arguments. GraphicsEnabler=No EthernetBuiltIn=Yes You can customize this of course. Just make sure you specify the above two arguments. [ Attached mine to this post - Org.chameleon.Boot.plist-MAC.zip ]. To fix Audio I used toleda’s solution. Go to your System Preferences and under Security ensure that programs from sources other than App Store can be installed. Download HDAEnabler1.kext from here : https://github.com/toleda/audio_kext_enabler Copy it into the folder /System/Library/Extensions of your Mac partition Open shell and type the following commands. cd /Volumes/"Your Mac Partition Name"/System/Library/Extensions sudo chmod -R 755 HDAEnabler1.kext sudo chown -R root:wheel HDAEnabler1.kext You will be asked for your password at some point. Enter it. Now download this by clicking on the "Download Zip" on the right: https://github.com/toleda/audio_ALC898 Extract the zip in the downloads folder (DO NOT MOVE IT). Double-click audio_alc898-85_patch.command to execute it. If you are asked for password enter it. If you get the following output then it was a success: Prepare Desktop/audio_ALC898 ... Archive: 898.zip creating: 898/ inflating: 898/Info-84.plist inflating: 898/Info-85.plist extracting: 898/layout1.xml.zlib extracting: 898/layout2.xml.zlib extracting: 898/layout3.xml.zlib inflating: 898/Platforms.xml.zlib Install files ... Password: Patch binary ... Fix permissions ... Kernel cache... Finished, restart required. logout Restart computer to complete installation The boot arguments for installer from here were incredibly helpful. PENDING: Create a patched DSDT. Any advice on this is appreciated. UPDATE: Sept 26 2013 Following issues come up frequently: Sleep/wake problem where the system freezes while waking up (no display either). Random complete system hangs where everything just freezes Prolonged waits and temporary freezes with the wheel spinning away to glory or the mouse not moving. ​Repaired permissions and also ran kext utility. Issues continue. Chipping away..will update once I have a stable system. KEXTs.zip org.chameleon.Boot.plist-USB.zip org.chameleon.Boot.plist-MAC.zip

    New Build Question?

    Hi, Having spent what seems like forever researching hackintosh I am about to start my first build My components are:- i7 4770k Asus Gryphon Z87 Intel HD4600 Graphics (plan to add GTX 7xx later when budget allows) 16gb Corsair vengeance memory 256GB SanDisk SSD (will add another HDD later for storage) NH-U12S Cooler Corsair HX650 PSU AeroCool DS cube As I understand it I will need to use Clover with the asus board as there is no legacy boot option? Can anyone recommend a good guide to have a look at I have been on the clover wiki and it all seems a bit complicated... Thanks
  7. Hi all, So I hope this is an appropriate place to post the following and that I don't {censored} anyone off by doing so. But, I recently put together a PC (over the past few weeks) featuring the brand new Haswell shenanigans (I'll list the build shortly). Anyway, I would love to get OSX up and running on this baby, but am by no means an expert. Now, before you get mad and tell me to just wait patiently for others to figure it out, here me out. I have been reading and reading and reading all about creating a Hackintosh, but am brand new to the scene. Granted, I have some computer savvy, I work for my university's tech support, etc... (also I built the damned thing which must count for something.) Anyway, I am here to be a testing guinea pig. I plan to dive into this fully this weekend, but am trying to amass as much advice and documentation as I can before hand. I will try to keep this updated as I go through the whole process of trying to make things work, but I am confident that I am going to need help and hopefully in return I will help to blaze the trail for others. So at this point, any tips, points, and bewares are welcome! Here is my build: CPU: Intel i7 4770K Mobo: Asus z87-Deluxe GPU: Asus GTX660 ti PSU: Corsair 600Wm HDD: Some 500Gb drive that I had laying around Ram: 2x4Gb corsair vengeance Not sure if I am leaving out any important information there, but I think that's it! I've attached the patched BIOS file I have acquired for my board. EDIT: I am not allowed to "upload this kind of file"... But I have one is what matters I guess. And if anyone wants it or needs it credit for the creation goes to CodeRush.
  8. Hi, I thought it would be nice that I would be the first here to give my experience with getting Mojave running and mostly working on my system. My specifications are as follows: iMac 14,2 GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H / Intel Core i7-4770k @ 4.4GHz / 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 @ 1600MHz MSI AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB OC 250GB SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND SSD / 120GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD 1TB 5.4K HDD I used the config that @MaLd0n helped me with. Seriously, he is a legend. HERE is my Clover Config including everything I use for 10.13 High Sierra and 10.14 Mojave. Installation Procedure: Create bootable USB media with createinstallmedia - sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"Insert Volume Name here" ***** Remove quotation marks!!! **"--Applicationpath" is now depreciated and should not be used when making a 10.14 Mojave USB. I do not know if this will change in upcoming releases. ** ConvertToAPFS is now depreciated and no longer works when installing 10.14 Mojave beta 1. Using the command "--converttoapfs NO" will not work if you use it with "createinstallmedia". Editing "minstallconfig.xml" within the "macOS Install Data" folder on the target partition chosen during installation to change "ConvertToAPFS" from "TRUE" to "FALSE" would also not disable APFS conversion. Installation ran through well, but it did restart just after installation began which seemed to have been caused by a crash, but it seemed like it was normal as this happened twice as I tried installing Mojave earlier and the same thing happened. Rebooting again into the installation on the target drive that was selected before described as "macOS Install" and named "macOS 10.14" resumed installation. Everything from then on was easy and smooth. I set-up my iCloud and things as such and was brought to the desktop of macOS 10.14 Mojave! What does work: Graphics (Acceleration/Metal) // 4K video dropped 0 frames // Picture-in-Picture Mouse and Keyboard USB 3.0 - Full 5 GBP/s - Only ports above HDMI Port and front I/O USB 3.0 under both Intel and Killer Ethernet ports function with USB 2.0 devices. Ethernet (only Intel NIC so far) Both NIC's work, Intel I217-V and Killer E2200 iMessage Sleep and Wake Shutdown Restart Update #1: Temporary Fix: ***I have gotten audio to work after browsing Reddit, I stumbled across this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/8orn7w/mojave_files_needed/e05kkj9/ Update #2: I have just found a kext for the on-board Killer E2200 NIC after searching with device and vendor ID's on this forum. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/313-atherose2200ethernet/ Update #3: Audio is now fully operational with new version 1.2.8 of AppleALC, from here: What does NOT work: USB 3 under Intel I217-V NIC and Killer E2200 NIC Ethernet Ports // Only function with USB 2.0 devices. Audio Temporary fix in Update #1 above Fixed in Update #3 Killer E2200 NIC Fixed in Update #2 above This is the information I have been able to gather thus far whilst using Mojave. I hope this helps someone in getting Mojave running on their system. Regards, Mohamed CLOVER_moman2000 No SN.zip

    A full guide required.

    Hey guys. I've been saving up some money and just today got what I wanted for that cash =D This will be my first Hackintosh ever and since I'm new to this, I will need to be guided. Here is the system specification: Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (Stock Fan replaced with Dual Corsair SP120) GPU: Inno3d GTX 650 1GB Memory: 8GB*2 Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz Storage: Corsair Neutron Series 64GB and WD Cavier Green 500GB Chassis: Corsair 600T Special Edition White PSU: Cooler Master Extreme II 625W All of this will be assembled by me and for the very first time. That shouldn't be a problem but getting OS X to work on it would. That is where I will need your help. I need a full written guide so that I can learn as I take steps. Thank You. The Warlock.
  10. Hello guys! This is my first time installing with Clover UEFI mode so i would need a bit help since i won't get Mavericks booting. I've made UEFI USB in my mavericks virtual machine and tried to get it booting with no luck. First question is what do i need in config.plist on my EFI partition since its all empty for some reason? Is my USB made the right way? ( Watch pictures from here http://imgur.com/a/vWvXx#0 Includes S/L/E + EFI Partition pictures ) Specs: Intel i7 4770K, MSi Z87-G45, MSi Cyclone 460 GTX, Kingston HyperX 1600MHz 2 x 4 GB, Seagate Barracuda 1TB I would like to use my PCI graphics card (worked before with legacy install). Any clues would be really appreciated! If you need something else to figure this out just ask! Thanks in advance!
