  1. Thanks to Clover EFI Bootloader I was able to achieve almost perfect HacBook Pro from my Lenovo T420 This guide is work in progress and I’ll try to update it as often as I can outdated! For more updated guide head to tluck's post #481 (thanks tluck for taking over) Why UEFI Only? Faster boot time, better hardware detection, native Mac OS X Installation process and Auto create Recovery HD, working iCloud and iMessage to name a few. But in general you will achieve almost perfect Macbook Pro clone that will most likely survive all future System updates. Note: I’ll be focusing on Mountain Lion but I guess Lion would work equally good. Lets start by preparing Mac OS X install media. You will need: - Working Mac OS X 10.6 or later (Hackintosh, Virtual machine or real Mac) - 8GB+ USB pen-drive - Legal copy of Mountain Lion install app - and an app called Lion Disk Maker - my custom Clover Package: Clover_v2_r1625k0.pkg.zip Prepare Mountain Lion install media using Lion DiskMaker. Making install media bootable on your ThinkPad Run my custom Clover Package and change the install destination to the Mountain Lion install media you’ve just created using Lion DiskMaker. Generaly you don't have to worry about anything else it is all customized to work best on all ThinkPads. Note (optional): At this point you can use another FAT32 formatted pen-drive to install Clover on to it. This pen-drive needs to be capable of storing at least 25MB+ of data. System installation Insert prepared OS X Mountain Lion Install Disk - 10.8 in your ThinkPad and set to boot in UEFI Only mode. And wait for the boot loader. You should be presented with screen like this: Now start the installation process just like you would on a normal Mac. Partition your drive with GUID table and install. Adding Extra drivers using myHack You now should be running vanilla Mac OS X 10.8. Before you start upgrading and instaling software now is a good time to add missing drivers and install them in a clean and proper manner using myHack. 1. Download Extra Folder: Extra.zip 2. Download myHack and place it in your Application folder 3. Run myHack and choose myFix. When asked about Extra folder choose "Use My Own" and point to downloaded Extra folder from step 1. Reboot and check if everything is working fine. By everything, beside AppleACPIPlatform.kext ver 1.3.5, I mean Sound and Battery meter cause these are the only kexts that are in Extra/Extentions Making your custom configuration using OEM folder ... under construction... Booting Clover EFI Bootloader from system drive It's time to get rid of the osx pen-drive you've been booting all the time and install my custom Clover to your main disk and boot directly from your hard drive EFI partition. This step is identical to the "Making install media bootable on your ThinkPad" but this time you will be using your main drive. Just make sure your disk drive is selected when installing. Note: Now You can customize your installation. You have the choice to install Clover Preference Panel and Optional RC scripts. Remove pen-drive and reboot. If all went well you should be booting from your hard drives EFI partition now. Good luck! Software worth mentioning Clover EFI bootloader (thread) - (source code) - (changelog) - (wiki) CloverGrower (post) - (source code) HWMonitor + HWSensors (thread) - (source code) DSDT Editor (thread) DarwinDumper (thread) ... Thanks and credits @Slice, @dmazar and all Clover thread members, @joshhh and all T510 thread members, @gothic860 and all W520 thread members, @Manwe150 and all T420 thread members .…. to be continued. Update 2013-01-20: Flashed latest UEFI Bios version 1.43 + whitelist and started fresh DSDT patching Update 2013-01-30: Uploaded new LenovoEFI_Pack_Beta2.zip (from now on I'll be attaching latest version to this thread). I've started using the EFI/OEM/4180A32 folder specific for my T420 model and added minimal config in the root that should work for everyone else (testers needed). My latest DSDT.aml in EFI/OEM/4180A32/ACPI/patched and updated ThinkPad theme is included. Update 2013-05-15: Updated the post to reflect some changes and progress made in this topic. Using custom Clover r1625 that has all the stuff Lenovo UEFI user needs. This one is enabled to install to ESP by default with ThinkPad Theme and RC scripts and example EFI/CLOVER/OEM/4180A32 folder.
  2. Hi, building Pandora's Box I need to compile Clover from source so I've created a script to do that following Clover devs advices. Well, Build_Clover.command can easily build a standard Clover, but also permit you to define macros that are not available on the standard package. So following Slice intruction here you can create a new package containing legacy boot file with all the macro you need by selecting them: =============================================================================== BUILD boot7 with additional macros <---------------------------------------------------- 1) USE_APPLE_HFSPLUS_DRIVER 2) USE_BIOS_BLOCKIO 3) NO_GRUB_DRIVERS 4) DISABLE_UDMA_SUPPORT 5) ENABLE_VBIOS_PATCH_CLOVEREFI 6) DISABLE_USB_SUPPORT 7) ENABLE_PS2MOUSE_LEGACYBOOT 8) DEBUG_ON_SERIAL_PORT 9) DISABLE_LTO 10) ENABLE_SECURE_BOOT 11) USE_ION 12) DISABLE_USB_MASS_STORAGE 13) ENABLE_USB_OHCI 14) ENABLE_USB_XHCI ONLY_SATA_0 added! actual macros defined: -D REAL_NVRAM -D NO_GRUB_DRIVERS_EMBEDDED -D ONLY_SATA_0 That affect boot7 only, enter you choice or press "b" to build: Result: also the package is customized to remind you what you have done! Push here to Download
  3. This topic was create for report problem with Clover Bootloader or simply to ask for a new feature. ErmaC
  4. Slice is glad to present a new EFI bootloader. CLOVER Now version 2 rEFIt based. It is open source based on different projects: Chameleon, rEFIt, XNU, VirtualBox. The main is EDK2 latest revision. I also want to thank all who help Slice with the development. Credits and copyrights remain in the sources. http://cloverefiboot.sourceforge.net/ Main features: If you have a question please provide outputs from DarwinDumper (formed from Trauma tool).

  5. This thread is a walkthrough on how to install High Sierra. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS • MY SPECS: 1. Intel Core i7-4770K (De-lidded) 2. EVGA Z97 FTW (ATX) 3. Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB 4. Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 2400MHz 5. OCZ Vertex 4 512 GB 6. Patriot Dual Bay 2.5" SATA 3.5" drive bay (for SSD) 7. Noctua NH-U12S 8. My case: Modified Apple Powermac G5 9. ASUS BW-12B1ST 10. ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 11. Silverstone SST-ST1200-G Evolution Strider Gold 1200W • WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 1. macOS 10.13 High Sierra [from Mac App Store] 2. A computer running an Intel Processor 3. Access to OS X on VMWare (for Windows), Mac, or Hackintosh 4. 1x supported graphics card 5. Clover v2.4k r4220 and up 6. A USB flash drive at least 8 GB 7. Update your system with 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 Z97 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'. Change Boot mode select to 'UEFI'. Continue to FIXED Boot ORDER Priorities→ Check if CD/DVD is 1st Boot (Note that your CD drive will not appear unless there is an UEFI enabled CD inside; Scroll down to Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities to set the boot sequence of the available hard disks (Note that if at least one hard disk is not configured with EFI bootloader then 'Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities' menu will not show up). Go to CSM Configuration; Launch CSM = 'Disabled'; This enables the bootloader menu screen to load with native HD as specified by your monitor. NOTE: If you are multi-booting with Windows 7, it is MANDATORY that Launch CSM = 'Enabled' (Launch PXE OpROM policy = 'Do not launch', Launch Storage OpROM policy = 'UEFI only', Other PCI device ROM priority = 'UEFI OpROM'); The lack of these settings can cause the following error when starting up your Windows 7 boot drive: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000d Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data It will also prevent any non-UEFI boot disks from appearing in the UEFI BIOS (e.g. CD/DVD, Windows 7 USB Keys, etc.) c. Go to ADVANCED→ Power Management→ ACPI Sleep State is S3 only (Suspend to RAM). d. Go to ADVANCED→ Graphics Configuration→ Disable internal graphics. e. Go to ADVANCED→ CPU Configuration; there is no option for Vt-d, so disable Intel Virtualization Technology (during installation). f. Go to ADVANCED→ USB Configuration→ Disable XHCI Mode. g. [OPTIONAL] Go to MEMORY; Under Memory Multiplier Configuration, set Performance Memory Profiles to XMP Profile 1. h. [OPTIONAL] Go to ADVANCED→ H/W Monitor Configuration→ Set all fan speeds to 50%. Save and Reset. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF HIGH SIERRA 10.13 1. Clover and the macOS 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/disk4. 3. Type the following entry into Terminal to format the USB stick (two partitions, via GPT): diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk4 1 GPT HFS+J "OS X" R During the process the following occurred: /dev/disk4 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 r4220+ (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 v1.2.3 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, 10.11, 10.12 leaving just 'Other'. b. Copy the required kexts Slice’s FakeSMC.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (for PS/2 keyboard), and your ethernet kext (Intel I219-V) IntelMausiEthernet-V2.3.0 or AppleIntelE1000e v3.3.3 to the following directory: /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other. 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/Other with your networking kext. 7. Use a text editor/plist editor like PlistEdit Pro to modify your config.plist manually. We must apply the following mandatory patches: a. You must add line ACPI/SSDT/DropOem=false in config.plist in order to boot without "Still waiting for root device" error. Add this <dict> entry to EFI/CLOVER/config.plist: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>DropOEM_DSM</key> <false/> </dict> b. Use Clover’s built-in kernel patch to automatically apply the code to patch the (new) kernel after each OS X update to prevent reboot loop: <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KernelPm</key> <true/> </dict> <key>Memory</key> <dict> c. AppleAHCIPort Clover patch disables orange drive icons. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data> RXh0ZXJuYWw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> SW50ZXJuYWw= </data> </dict> </array> 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>iMac14,2</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. 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</string> </dict> g. NVIDIA graphics cards especially 'Maxwell' & 'Pascal' currently lack support natively in macOS. To correct this problem, it requires System Parameter/NvidiaWeb entry. It must be disabled during installation by adding this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <false/> </dict> h. SIP. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) 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. SIP must be partially disabled at the least, to install anything (i.e., kexts) into protected system folders, but as of High Sierra beta, the old string "0x3" has resulted in errors later on in boot. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x3FF</string> </dict> i. Audio Fix. This Haswell board comes with a Realtek ALC898 audio chip. In order to use AppleALC/CloverALC (discussed further in this guide), you must add the following patch in the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>t1-10.9-10.11-AppleHDA/Realtek ALC898</string> <key>Find</key> <data> ixnUEQ== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleHDA</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> mQjsEA== </data> </dict> </array> j. Drop ACPI MATS/DMAR tables. Drop the DMAR table if VT-d isn’t disabled in UEFI settings. MATS has been known to prevent some from booting into 10.13 so it can be dropped as well: <key>ACPI</key> <key>DropTables</key> <array> <dict> <key>Signature</key> <string>MATS</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Signature</key> <string>DMAR</string> </dict> </array> NOTE: Without dropping the tables the following error may occur: Attempting System Restart...MACH Reboot 8. Preparing OS X partition. Download macOS v10.13.0 High Sierra [17A365] [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install macOS High Sierra" will be in /Applications. a. Go to → Show Package Contents → Contents → SharedSupport. b. You will now see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear in the folder. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... NOTE: The version of Disk Utility found in El Capitan+ has been stripped down of its most essential features to proceed with the following instructions. Your next best option is to use a pre-modified version of the old Disk Utility. After downloading it, extract and copy it to the Desktop and type the following line in Terminal to take ownership, enabling the app to run: sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Desktop/Disk\ Utility.app c. 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"... d. 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. e. Open "SharedSupport" folder and copy BaseSystem.chunklist, BaseSystem.dmg, AppleDiagnostics.chunklist, and AppleDiagnostics.dmg to the volume root. f. Remove the "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from the volume root and replace it with the full version (>5GB) in the Applications folder where it downloaded. NOTE: Skipping this step causes the following error when booting the installation: The path /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg appears to be missing or damaged g. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17+ to extract "kernel" from " SharedSupport /InstallESD/Packages/Core.pkg [/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. h. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install High Sierra on the hard disk of choice. i. Highlight and select the USB installer from the bootloader menu screen to begin the installation. j. Once the installer has finished, it will automatically restart the system. Boot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed High Sierra to continue the rest of the installation. • STEP 3: macOS 10.13 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the macOS 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. Agree to "Terms and Conditions." e. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. f. On "Express Set Up" access "Customize Settings." g. Do not "Enable Location Services on this Mac." h. Set your time zone, do not "Share Mac Analytics with Apple", and do not "Enable Siri". i. Wait a moment for the macOS desktop to load. j. When prompted to backup any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: macOS 10.13 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. Install macOS 10.13 Supplemental and reboot. 2. macOS High Sierra doesn’t allow unsigned apps to run that did not come from the App Store or identified developer. You can re-enable this function by running the following in Terminal: sudo spctl --master-disable Go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and disable GateKeeper to allow installation of software by unidentified developers. 3. Mount the EFI partition of the USB stick with EFI Mounter v1.2.3 and copy the 'EFI' folder to the EFI partition of High Sierra boot disk. 4. Install Clover v2.4k on the High Sierra 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. 5. Edit the config.plist from your boot disk in EFI/CLOVER/ by adding the following <dict> entries: a. Method for Enabling NVIDIA Web Drivers. Boot flag nvda_drv=1 doesn't work in config.plist to enable Web Drivers. The setting under System Parameter in Clover called "NvidiaWeb" is what's used to fulfill this instead. <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary. 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 macOS volume is called "HISIERRA" because that's what I named the partition I installed macOS 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.: macOS 10.13 High Sierra. "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: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. NOTE: Having more than one Windows installation will cause multiple "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI" items to appear In the Clover bootloader menu. To change its volume name that Clover shows it requires identifying its individual GUID and adding it as a 'string' under the Volume <key> tag. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list A list of drives will populate along with sublist of its partition scheme. Now look for the partition generally listed under your Windows disk as "EFI - NO NAME". E.g., my disk is "0" and the EFI partition is "2". I would type the following into terminal: diskutil info disk0s2 [replace 0 and 2 according to your drive and partition number] It will then printout all the info specific to that partition. All you need to use is the "Disk / Partition UUID", NOT the Volume UUID. <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Custom</key> <dict> <key>Entries</key> <array> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>A7649550-D460-49CF-9531-829D58F123DC</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 8</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>6CEDEB66-8DE8-420C-BA76-2F0CF3E84250</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>HISIERRA</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>macOS 10.13 High Sierra</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. USB patch. High Sierra 10.13 requires the port limit to be raised in order for USB 3.0 ports to be recognized. This process involves installing FakePCIID.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 20 in XHCI kext (9-series) 10.12</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////FQ==</data> </dict> </array> Be sure to copy FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other. NOTE: Set 'XHCI Mode' to Smart Auto in the BIOS to enable USB 3.0. 6. 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 High Sierra 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 uses. In this screenshot it’s disk2s4. To remove that partition we use the following command (you can also use the volume name): diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ Blank /dev/disk2s4 The partition will be erased. You’ll now have a blank partition sitting around, so you’ll want to merge that with your other High Sierra partition: diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ HISIERRA disk2s3 disk2s4 This will merge the two partitions, with disk2s3 absorbing the space from disk2s4 and expanding, it causes data loss so don’t expect this to preserve anything. 7. NVIDIA graphics cards 'Maxwell'+ currently lack native support in macOS 10.13. a. Install NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext and latest version of Lilu; Temporarily enable SIP to update drivers to avoid error and Web Driver installation failure. NOTE: Skipping this step may cause a black screen and/or the following error when booting the installation: IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, nov 0, sm 0x0 flashing at the top of the screen when restarting after installing NVIDIA Web Drivers. b. Download and install NVIDIA Web Driver 378.10.10.10.15.117 / NVIDIA Web Driver 378.10.10.10.15.120 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 High Sierra install drive. 9. Download CUDA 9.0.197 / CUDA 9.0.214 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.13 support and install. 10. [OPTION 1] Install AppleALC to enable native audio by injecting the layout id supported for ALC898 through dynamic patching without modifying any kexts. Audio will no longer be affected after each macOS 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 1 (or 2 or 3). <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> b. Download the latest version of AppleALC (v1.2.0) and copy it to 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 10. [OPTION 2] Install the following patch associated with Realtek ALC898 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda): a. Mount EFI partition, verify "Disable SIP" entry CsrActiveConfig=0x3FF is in config.plist. b. Download audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip and extract "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.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 macOS 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 and add UseARTFrequency=false entry in the config.plist: <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>UseARTFrequency</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> 11. Creating a DSDT (Refer to MaLd0n) 12. 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 Haswell.cfg 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 Haswell.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 14. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Mount the EFI partition to copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.23.1417: Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. NO COMPATIBLE VERSION FOR 10.13 I KNOW OF! 15. Install iStat Pro 4.9, 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. • OPTIONAL: Fixing Time Sync issue with macOS/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7, 8 & 10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to macOS, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time. NOTE: Avoid changing the time in macOS if you are running a multi-boot system. You only have to modify the time in the BIOS and in Windows followed by enabling the setting to sync the clock with online time.

In the process, boot manager was changed from Chameleon to Clover. When Clover gets past init(6), the boot process halts and the num lock/power lights start blinking on my USB keyboard. Unplugging said keyboard allows Clover to complete boot. Luckily, I still have a PS2 keyboard which works with Clover (it now stays plugged in at the same time as the USB keyboard). When I had Snow Leopard installed, it didn't do this, so I'm assuming it's a Clover problem. I've tried: - Plugging keyboard into all USB ports (both with and without the PS2 keyboard plugged in) - Changing BIOS Keyboard settings to both "OS" and "BIOS". - Updating Clover to latest version and installing UsbKbDxe-64 driver. I tried searching for a DSDT, but only found one for the non-Pro IP35. Other Google searching has fixes for UEFI booting systems and different MacOS versions, but nothing that applies to this MB. Thoughts?
  8. Not sure if this has been answered but I've got an annoying problem. Every so often I end up with a stack of "UEFI OS" options to click when I'm prompted to select my bootloader. I've noticed that for every restart it will create another and another, right up until my computer freezes, gets stuck at 'press del or f1' and doesn't even post. The worst part is that the only way to fix this is to do a CMOS reset, disconnect all the power cables that connect to my drives and pray for the best. Since I'm in the middle of another OSX installation I'm constantly restarting my PC and in turn getting these UEFI OS' options that don't even work when selected. It's giving me the sh*ts. 15 minutes ago, I tried booting Yosemite but it won't even show on boot selection and if I selected the dreaded UEFI OS, it would take me to a grey apple screen and an endless loading icon.

  12. Here’s a script I wrote last year for creating font image files for both Chameleon’s and Clover’s GUI. Notes - Clover works best with monospaced fonts, where as Chameleon can use both monospaced and proportionally spaced fonts. - Both monospaced and proportional fonts can be used (for Clover, r3216 and up is required). - While this script does it’s stuff mathematically, sometimes the best results (optically) may only be achieved when making/adjusting the font files manually. Requirements ImageMagick Installing can be done using homebrew Once Homebrew is installed, you can run the following command from the Terminal: brew install imagemagick * Note: There are other ways to install ImageMagick but I've found only Homebrew does it simply with all required delegates. If you choose to install ImageMagick using other means (package installers, compile from source) then YMMV. createFont script Usage: ./createFont.sh -f[path/to/font] -s[size] <options> Help can be displayed using -h option: ./createFont.sh -h Please supply a minimum of the font and size. In this case a PNG image will be generated with the text in white on a transparent background. Options are: -a Alpha transparency for text. Value 0 thru 1 * Some versions of ImageMagick fail to render text with this option turned on. -b Background Colour. As three comma separated values Red, Green and Blue. [0-255],[0-255],[0-255] Note: background defaults to transparent. -c Colour of text. As three comma separated values Red, Green and Blue. [0-255],[0-255],[0-255] Note: text colour defaults to white. Some colour examples: Red: 205,0,0 Dark Blue: 35,43,148 Light Blue: 93,192,244 Bright Green: 91,226,81 Dark Green: 24,135,16 Bright Yellow: 219,221,47 -e Effects ---------------------------------------------------- shading Enable single colour shading effect. shadow Enable drop shadow effect (type 1 fonts only). -f Font. Either installed font name OR full file path. -h Display help. -i List installed fonts available to ImageMagick. -l Leading (Space between text lines) +/-16 (type 2) -r Reduced Character Set (Type 2 only) ---------------------------------------------------- a Do not include ANSI characters (32-127) c Do not include cyrillic characters. -s Size in pixels. Expects value between 6 and 255 -t Type ---------------------------------------------------- 1 Font type for Chameleon (Default). 2 Font type for Clover. -o Disable optimisation of final image using pngquant. -p Padding in pixels. Space between characters (type 1) -v Display version of this script. -x Disable anti aliasing. The script is not perfect and ImageMagick can do way more so if desired, feel free to improve the script but please post any updates here. Examples For a Chameleon (type 1) font: ./createFont.sh -t1 s14 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/mplus-1c-black.ttf -b 100,150,24 Made this image: For a Clover (type 2) font: ./createFont.sh -t2 -s14 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/mplus-1c-black.ttf -b 100,150,24 Made this image Note regarding sizes - Keep font sizes sensible as too large will be unusable. Here are two images, one using 28pt and the other using 16pt . Both of these are too large for ideal use. Note: These are using a Clover revision before 3216 where proportional spacing is not working properly. I will update these images soon. Update: to v0.87 - Added extra glyphs for radio buttons and checkboxes as per slice's request. (Note: Requires font containing those glyphs). - Included the use of imagemagik's X Constant Image option to help overcome Sherlock's issue. Update: to v0.88 - Apply X Constant Image option fix for type 2 fonts, to type 1 fonts. (Thanks for the note cecekpawon. I Finally got to it ). createFont_v0.88.zip
  13. Manually install Clover for UEFI booting and configure boot priority with EasyUEFI in Windows This tutorial will show how to manually install Clover in the EFI system partition of a pre-existing install of UEFI Windows. In the process, you will also learn how to mount the EFI partition and add Clover as a UEFI boot option (using the EasyUEFI program) in Windows. Prerequisites 1. CloverISO from Sourceforge. 2. 7-Zip for Windows 3. EasyUEFI 4. Existing UEFI install of Windows X64 (7,8,8.1 or 10) Obtain Clover 1. Download the CloverISO.tar.lzma file from Sourceforge and open the file with 7-Zip. 2. Extract the Clover subfolder to your \Downloads with 7-Zip. 3. Copy the Clover folder by right clicking on its icon in Windows File Explorer. Mounting the EFI System Partition and installing Clover 1. Open an administrative command prompt by clicking the Windows start button, typing cmd and right clicking on the search result as shown below... 2. Type the following commands, followed by <Enter> after each line: diskpart list disk select disk # (where # is the disk number of the disk with UEFI Windows) list partition select partition x (where x is the partition number of the EFI system partition. By default, it is usually the 100MB second partition) assign letter=s exit 3. Open Windows Task Manager as administrator by clicking the Windows start button, typing taskmgr and right clicking on the search result as shown below... 4. Click Run new task 5. Click Browse and in the Browse window, navigate to the EFI folder in the System Partition (which is mapped to drive S:) and also select "All files" from the drop down menu... 6. Right click inside the EFI folder to "paste" the Clover folder we downloaded earlier. If necessary, you can make edits to Clover's default config.plist with Wordpad or add OSX kexts like FakeSMC into the \kexts\other folder while still in the Task Manager browse window. For UEFI booting into OSX, you will most likely need the OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi or OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi driver in EFI\CLOVER\drivers64UEFI (copy from the \CLOVER\drivers-Off\drivers64UEFI folder). 7. Quit Task Manager. Add Clover as a UEFI Boot Option using the EasyUEFI Program 1. Open EasyUEFI and click on the small icon with the plus sign (second from top) to add a new entry. 2. In the Create Boot Entry Window, choose "Linux or other OS" as the entry type, click to select the EFI System partition as the target and browse to the CLOVERX64.efi file (file path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi) as shown below... 3. Type Clover in the Description field then the OK button. 4. You will now see the new Clover entry on the main GUI of EasyUEFI. Click on the entry and then click the small up arrow icon to move Clover to the top so it will get priority over the Windows Boot Manager on boot up. Note on this screen, you can also delete/edit/disable boot entries or move them down the boot order. 5. Click the power menu and select reboot to restart your system (use your system's boot device selection key to choose the drive with CLOVER installed if necessary eg F12 for Gigabyte motherboards, F8 for ASUS motherboards, F11 for ASrock motherboards) ---> will now be presented with the Clover Main Menu GUI to boot Windows (or OSX). Enjoy and Good Hack !

  15. I have got an old Acer Aspire 7720G from a fellow. Since it took me a while to figure out how to make a working system I have decided to share this experience with somebody who may have similar setup. The specs are: CPU: T7500 Graphics: nVidia Geforce 9500M GS Display: 17''WUXGA 1920x1200 Ethernet: Broadcom Sound: Realtek ALC268 WiFi: Intel 4965 AGN (not working) Finally I got almost everything working (Ethernet, sound incl. mic, camera, etc) which work without issues. Two things which I could not make natively function are WiFi and sleep. Create installation media: Use 16GB USB stick, formatted via Disk Utility as FAT32 and MBR partition scheme Install Clover to USB in Legacy mode with the following settings: Remove all subfolders in EFI/CLOVER/kexts except /Others Place required kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Others. FakeSMC.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext Replace VBoxHfs-64.efi with HFSPlus.efi in EFI/Clover/drivers64 and EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI Place standard config.plist with nVidia settings in EFI/Clover (see attached config.plist.zip) Copy El Capitan installation to USB using Terminal (assuming you have already downloaded El Capitan from Apple store): sudo "/Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/USB_NAME --applicationpath "/Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app" --nointeraction Install OS X: Boot from created USB and use Disk Utility to format your hard drive as Apple HFSJ+ and GPT partition scheme. Finish the install, takes about 45 min with two reboots regardless of '1 minute' showing. This will also create the Recovery partition. Post Install: Install Clover to your HDD with the following settings: Mount EFI partition if not yet mounted Repeat steps 3 to 6 from above procedure when creating installation media For ALC268 place the patched AppleHDA.kext into S/L/E replacing the original one (see this thread if you need more details). Note that you will have to repeat this step each time you install an update from Apple. Add other kexts to EFI/Clover/kexts/Others: BCM5722D.kext for Ethernet (search for this kext) - required to set up iMessage HDAEnabler3.kext for ALC268 Disable SIP, repair permissions, clear caches and reboot from your HDD. Other issues & solutions: 1. I had an issue with booting from HDD because the old BIOS doesn't boot the GPT disk when none of partition is set active. If you get 'No bootable device' error or similar then boot from your USB again and use fdisk in Terminal to set the active flag: sudo fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 p f 1 w y quit WARNING: This method may break your Windows installation if you have it installed on the same GPT drive. 2. The walkaround with WiFi is to use external USB dongle, like cheap D-Link 140 with BearExtender-R515 driver. But I personally decided to replace my wireless card with Atheros 9280 and forget about wifi issue forever (you can use any of natively supported cards, they are widely available at eBay). 3. If for some reason you do not get the full 1920x1200 resolution in Clover boot screen you should set EDID in Clover config using the procedure below: Get your EDID from Terminal ioreg -l | grep IODisplayEDID Paste the output into CustomEDIT section of your config.plist. Optional: Set PatchVBios to true. 4. You will have to generate your own SMBIOS values as well as ROM & MLB to get iMessage and other Apple services working. Use Mac3,1 or Mac4,1 depending on your CPU and video. UPDATE 1: 5. If you want your battery to show correct values you will have to patch DSTD. Get instructions and my patch from RehubMan. UPDATE 2: Acer 7720G will not work with Sierra or later, unless you have upgraded your CPU to at least T9300 and changed SMBIOS profile to Mac4,1 or higher. Good luck!
  16. This thread is a walkthrough on how to install Sierra. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS • MY SPECS: 1. Intel Core i7-4770K (De-lidded) 2. EVGA Z97 FTW (ATX) 3. Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB 4. Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 2400MHz 5. OCZ Vertex 4 512 GB 6. Patriot Dual Bay 2.5" SATA 3.5" drive bay (for SSD) 7. Noctua NH-U12S 8. My case: Modified Apple Powermac G5 9. ASUS BW-12B1ST 10. EVGA GeForce GTX680 SC 11. Silverstone SST-ST1200-G Evolution Strider Gold 1200W • WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 1. macOS 10.12 Sierra [from Mac App Store] 2. A computer running an Intel Processor 3. Access to OS X on VMWare (for Windows), Mac, or Hackintosh 4. 1x supported graphics card 5. Clover v2.3k r3763 and up 6. A USB flash drive at least 8 GB 7. Update your system with 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 Z97 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'. Change Boot mode select to 'UEFI'. Continue to FIXED Boot ORDER Priorities→ Check if CD/DVD is 1st Boot (Note that your CD drive will not appear unless there is an UEFI enabled CD inside; Scroll down to Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities to set the boot sequence of the available hard disks (Note that if at least one hard disk is not configured with EFI bootloader then 'Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities' menu will not show up). Go to CSM Configuration; Launch CSM = 'Disabled'; This enables the bootloader menu screen to load with native HD as specified by your monitor. NOTE: If you are multi-booting with Windows 7, it is MANDATORY that Launch CSM = 'Enabled' (Launch PXE OpROM policy = 'Do not launch', Launch Storage OpROM policy = 'UEFI only', Other PCI device ROM priority = 'UEFI OpROM'); The lack of these settings can cause the following error when starting up your Windows 7 boot drive: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000d Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data It will also prevent any non-UEFI boot disks from appearing in the UEFI BIOS (e.g. CD/DVD, Windows 7 USB Keys, etc.) c. Go to ADVANCED→ Power Management→ ACPI Sleep State is S3 only (Suspend to RAM). d. Go to ADVANCED→ Graphics Configuration→ Disable internal graphics. e. Go to ADVANCED→ CPU Configuration; there is no option for Vt-d, so disable Intel Virtualization Technology (during installation). f. Go to ADVANCED→ USB Configuration→ Disable XHCI Mode. g. [OPTIONAL] Go to MEMORY; Under Memory Multiplier Configuration, set Performance Memory Profiles to XMP Profile 1. h. [OPTIONAL] Go to ADVANCED→ H/W Monitor Configuration→ Set all fan speeds to 50%. Save and Reset. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF SIERRA 10.12 1. Clover and the macOS 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/disk4. 3. Type the following entry into Terminal to format the USB stick (two partitions, via GPT): diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk4 1 GPT HFS+J "OS X" R During the process the following occurred: /dev/disk4 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 v1.2.3 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, 10.11 leaving just 'Other'. Create a folder titled '10.12'. b. Copy the required kexts FakeSMC.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (for PS/2 keyboard), and your ethernet kext (Intel I219-V) IntelMausiEthernet-V2.2.0 or AppleIntelE1000e v3.3.3 to the following directory: /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. 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/10.12 with your networking kext. 7. Use a text editor/plist editor like PlistEdit Pro to modify your config.plist manually. We must apply the following mandatory patches: a. You must add line ACPI/SSDT/DropOem=false in config.plist in order to boot without "Still waiting for root device" error. Add this <dict> entry to EFI/CLOVER/config.plist: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>DropOEM_DSM</key> <false/> </dict> b. Use Clover’s built-in kernel patch to automatically apply the code to patch the (new) kernel after each OS X update to prevent reboot loop: <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KernelPm</key> <true/> </dict> <key>Memory</key> <dict> c. AppleAHCIPort Clover patch disables orange drive icons. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data> RXh0ZXJuYWw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> SW50ZXJuYWw= </data> </dict> </array> 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>iMac14,2</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. 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</string> </dict> g. NVIDIA graphics cards especially 'Maxwell' currently lack support natively in macOS. To correct this problem, it requires System Parameter/NvidiaWeb entry. It must be disabled during installation by adding this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <false/> </dict> h. SIP. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) (reference sources 1, 2, & 3) since 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> i. Audio Fix. This Haswell board comes with a Realtek ALC898 audio chip. In order to use AppleALC/CloverALC (discussed further in this guide), you must add the following patch in the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>t1-10.9-10.11-AppleHDA/Realtek ALC898</string> <key>Find</key> <data> ixnUEQ== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleHDA</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> mQjsEA== </data> </dict> </array> 8. Preparing OS X partition. Download macOS v10.12.0 Sierra [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" will be in /Applications. a. Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" → 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... NOTE: The version of Disk Utility found in El Capitan has been stripped down of its most essential features to proceed with the following instructions. Your next best option is to use a pre-modified version of the old Disk Utility. After downloading it, extract and copy it to the Desktop and type the following line in Terminal to take ownership, enabling the app to run: sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Desktop/Disk\ Utility.app 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. j. Use ShowHiddenFiles to hide the hidden files, and quit the application. k. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install Sierra on the hard disk of choice. l. Highlight the USB installer from the bootloader menu screen and type kernel boot flag nv_disable=1 to avoid a blank screen (for Maxwell+ GPU's), resulting in 'No Display' signal. m. Once the installer is finished, it will automatically restart the system. Boot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed Sierra. • STEP 3: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the macOS 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 macOS desktop to load. i. When prompted to back up any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. macOS Sierra no longer allows unsigned apps to run that did not come the App Store or identified developer. You can re-enable this function by running the following in Terminal: sudo spctl --master-disable Go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and disable GateKeeper to allow installation of software by unidentified developers. 2. Mount the EFI partition of the USB stick with EFI Mounter v1.2.3 and copy the 'EFI' folder to the EFI partition of Sierra boot disk. 3. Install Clover v2.3k on the Sierra 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. 4. Edit the config.plist from your boot disk in EFI/CLOVER/ by adding the following <dict> entries: a. New Method for Enabling NVIDIA Web Drivers. Boot flag nvda_drv=1 no longer works in config.plist to enable Web Drivers. A new setting under System Parameter in Clover called "NvidiaWeb" has been updated to fulfill this instead. <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary. 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 macOS volume is called "SIERRA" because that's what I named the partition I installed macOS 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.: macOS 10.12 Sierra. "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: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. NOTE: Having more than one Windows installation will cause multiple "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI" items to appear In the Clover bootloader menu. To change its volume name that Clover shows it requires identifying its individual GUID and adding it as a 'string' under the Volume <key> tag. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list A list of drives will populate along with sublist of its partition scheme. Now look for the partition generally listed under your Windows disk as "EFI - NO NAME". E.g., my disk is "0" and the EFI partition is "2". I would type the following into terminal: diskutil info disk0s2 [replace 0 and 2 according to your drive and partition number] It will then printout all the info specific to that partition. All you need to use is the "Disk / Partition UUID", NOT the Volume UUID. <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Custom</key> <dict> <key>Entries</key> <array> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>A7649550-D460-49CF-9531-829D58F123DC</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 8</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>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>SIERRA</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>macOS 10.12 Sierra</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. USB patch. Sierra 10.12 requires the port limit to be raised in order for USB 3.0 ports to be recognized. This process involves installing FakePCIID.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 20 in XHCI kext (9-series) 10.12</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////FQ==</data> </dict> </array> Be sure to copy FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. NOTE: Set 'XHCI Mode' to Smart Auto in the BIOS to enable USB 3.0. 5. 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 Sierra 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 uses. In this screenshot it’s disk2s4. To remove that partition we use the following command (you can also use the volume name): diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ Blank /dev/disk2s4 The partition will be erased. You’ll now have a blank partition sitting around, so you’ll want to merge that with your other Sierra partition: diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ SIERRA disk2s3 disk2s4 This will merge the two partitions, with disk2s3 absorbing the space from disk2s4 and expanding, it causes data loss so don’t expect this to preserve anything. 6. NVIDIA graphics cards 'Maxwell'+ currently lack native support in macOS 10.12 so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 kernel flag. a. Download and install NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.05f01 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. 7. Reboot using the USB installer and choose the Sierra install drive. 8. Download CUDA 7.5.30 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.12 support and install. 9. [OPTION 1] Install AppleALC to enable native audio by injecting the layout id supported for ALC898 through dynamic patching without modifying any kexts. Audio will no longer be affected after each macOS 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 1 (or 2 or 3). <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> b. Download the latest version of AppleALC (v1.0.18) and copy it to CLOVER/kexts/10.12. 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 10. [OPTION 2] Install the following patch associated with Realtek ALC898 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda): a. Mount EFI partition, verify "Disable SIP" entry CsrActiveConfig=0x3 is in config.plist. b. Download audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip and extract "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.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 and add UseARTFrequency=false entry in the config.plist: <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>UseARTFrequency</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> 11. Create a DSDT??? (More to come later) 12. [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 Haswell.cfg 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 Haswell.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 13. [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 Core i7-4770K 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 v1.2.3 and place SSDT.aml into /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ folder. 14. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Mount the EFI partition to copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12 folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.23.1417 Binaries (with FakeSMC): Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. 15. 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 10.12.2 1. Download and install macOS Sierra 10.12.2 Combo Update and reboot. 2. After restarting, accept the popup window that prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.25 to proceed. 3. Download CUDA 8.0.57 drivers needed for 10.12.2 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot. 4. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. • STEP 6: Updating to 10.12.3 1. Download and install macOS Sierra 10.12.3 Combo Update and reboot. 2.

Download CUDA 8.0.63 drivers needed for 10.12.3 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot. 4. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. • STEP 7: Updating to 10.12.4 1. Update to the latest version of Clover v2.4k. 2. Download and install macOS Sierra 10.12.4 Combo Update and reboot. 3. After restarting, accept the popup window that prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.45f01 to proceed. 4. Download CUDA 8.0.71 drivers needed for 10.12.4 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot. 5. Install NVIDIA Web Driver 378.05.05.05f01 and CUDA 8.0.81 for Pascal card support. a. Remove any trace of GPUSensors.kext or it will cause "System uptime in nanoseconds…" kernel panic if you plan to update HWSensors 6.25.1426 Binaries (with FakeSMC). b. System Parameter/NvidiaWeb can be set to "false" since the motherboard has native working hardware NVRAM. 6. Update to the latest version of FakePCIID & FakePCIID_XHCIMux. 7. Update to the latest version of AppleALC v1.1.1 accompanied with Lilu.kext [for OPTION 1]. 8. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. • OPTIONAL: Fixing Time Sync issue with macOS/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7, 8 & 10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to macOS, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time. NOTE: Avoid changing the time in macOS if you are running a multi-boot system. You only have to modify the time in the BIOS and in Windows followed by enabling the setting to sync the clock with online time. WORKING-config.plist-for-Z97.zip
  17. Anyone can help me? I've got brightness full after restart/boot. I've been try to reinstall clover with emuvariableUefi-64.efi and install RC Script but its still same. I even set my Nvram to Always in Clover Prefpane. I dont know i think all asus laptop has same issue with me, Any suggestion?
  18. Hello! I finally succeeded. I have an old 80GB SATA hard disk which I use to experiment with Mac OS. I had a Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan installation complete with Office and other applications. Using Clover 3322 in iATKOS EC installer I managed to successfully boot it from within a virtual Mac in VMWare Workstation 10 (patched to support Mac OS). The SATA disk was connected to a SATA-USB adapter and then connected to the virtual Mac as a USB disk. I downloaded Sierra, but instead of creating a USB installation medium I stupidly tried to just upgrade by running the setup. The installation didn't succeed of course but while connecting and disconnecting the USB installer and the USB disk amd forcing several resets I finally screwed the partition and could not boot either in VMWare or natively in my PC. So I reinstalled El Capitan natively and then booted within VMWare. I successfully did all the upgrades up to version 10.11.6 and then downloaded Sierra again. This time I used Pandora's Box to create the USB installer. I booted the USB installer in VMWare and I installed 10.12 Sierra. For some reason it took a couple of hours, but it finally succeeded! It even made the sound and graphics work out of the box without having to install the VMWare Tools! Thank you for creating Pandora's Box! Pity I now have to reinstall all my applications...
  19. Hi all. I'm after a bit of help with installing Sierra GM. The system this post pertains to is an EX58-UD5 with Nehalem i7 920 and Nvidia 480 GTX, all working perfectly since the snow leopard days. Updates have always been a case of clicking update and waiting, until now that is! I'm running 10.11.6, I've updated clover to r3726 (latest build from sourceforge), I've downloaded Sierra from the app store, clicked install, rebooted, selected the install media. Grey screen with beach ball/spinner. I can move the mouse, the system sleeps and wakes but just doesn't bring up the installer. So I updated fakesmc to 6.20.1410 (the latest I could find from HWsensors). Same issue This is usually what happens when fakesmc doesn't get loaded, but seeing as the install media is read only I can even load fakesmc through single user mode on the way in. I can't even run kextstat as it doesn't exist on the installer. I then created a USB with createmedia --nointeraction, looked on the USB and theres no sign of S/L/E or L/E to dump fakesmc into. So I put my working EFI folder (with updated clover and fakesmc, boots 10.11 ok) onto the USB. I also put my dsdt on there in the root and in ACPI/patched. Same issue, grey screen. I have tried booting with nv_disable=1 which results in the same grey screen with beach ball/spinner but at a reduced resolution. So what I plan to do next is to recreate the installer using the restore method and put fakesmc somewhere that is loaded by the kernel, but before I do I wanted to ask, does this sound like a fakesmc problem or something else. I can't see why clover would not be injecting fakesmc but I can't run kextstat from single user mode as it doesn't exist on the installer. Help!
  20. Hello everyone, I have an issue with the lastest clover revision that I did not had with rev. 4077 using BiosBlockIO. Clover hangs at "Scanning entries...". To be able to boot, I must install without using BiosBlockIO but Sata instead. I'd like to use BiosBlockIO as I have RocketRaid 2720SGL that is faster than my Rampage 3 Extreme ICH10 controller (the same is true with Marvell controller) and is only bootable with this option. If I revert back to rev 4077, it does not hang... Is anyone having an idea about this issue ? Thanks
  21. Hello Insanelymac, I've successfully installed Mac OS X Sierra on 2 32gb flash drives with them as a JBOD Raid. I can only get into the hackintosh if I use another USB flash drive with Clover installed on it. I've tried using a clover installer however that just installs on my Raid Disk. I've also noticed that when I open clover configurator, there are 2 EFI partitions but both of them were empty. I've tried moving the contents of the EFI on my Raid disk that clover installed but my BIOS does not detect it. Also when I use the other flash drive to boot into clover, there is another volume called "BOOT OS X" right next to my Raid Disk Volume that I use to boot from. I just want to install and boot off of my Raid usb flash drives. Really running out of options, Thanks guys.

    Clover Legacy y Windows 10

    Buenas noches: He conseguido instalar El Capitan con el sistema Clover Legacy, arrancando éste desde la partición EFI. El sistema va perfectamente quitando los USB3, que aun sigo buscando la manera de parchearlos y que solo me detecta 16Gb de RAM en vez de los 22Gb que tengo. (esto ultimo no me importa mucho ya que lo que pretendo es dejar funcionando el dualboot) Ahora el problema lo tengo en Windows 10, las particiones aparecen como Legacy HD1, Legacy HD2, etc y no puedo localizar cual es la partición "Reservado para el Sistema" para optar el arranque de Windows10. Aparte supongo que también tendré que marcar esa partición como activa para poder arrancarlo. Alguna sugerencia? Gracias de antemano. Saludos!

    FireWire su El Capitan

    Buon giorno ragazzi, Ho necessità di utilizzare delle porte FireWire sulla seguente configurazione: Mobo: asrock b75m-gl R2.0 Cpu: i7 2600k GPU: integrata HD3000 Bootloader: clover v2.3 r3333 In casa ho due schede FireWire che fino a Yosemite funzionavano anticamente senza bisogno di nessun kext o nessuna patch. Entrambe montano un chip FireWire della VIA siglato VT6306. La prima che ha solo la FireWire e quindi solo questo chip mi lascia avviare il computer ma non mi viene riconosciuta nessuna interfaccia FireWire. La seconda che ha quel chip per le FireWire e un secondo chip in aggiunta sempre della VIA e siglato VT6214L per delle usb aggiuntive mi fa riavviare il computer al boot. Ecco uno screen del riavvio https://www.dropbox.com/s/qh3e80gwgls616b/File%2016-02-16%2C%2018%2048%2015.jpeg?dl=0 È possibile utilizzare in qualche modo una di queste due schede sotto El Capitan? Grazie ragazzi!
  24. Hello friends, I'm stuck with USB 3 ports after succeed in installing El Capitan 10.11.6 with latest Clover. I've found a config.plist for this mother board - Gigabyte Z170 UD5 TH - on some topic. 64GB RAM. Everything run perfectly stable with Nvidia GPU Zotac 980Ti AMP Edition 6GB. After patching. Sound is ok after patching but we had to work on static electricity problem noises. Seems to be good now. But here is the deal : even in the 'about this mac' reports everything is OK, also USB 3 port detected. I use a USB 3 to install the Capitan, mount USB keys on the system, it seems working... Except that I can't mount an external 1TB disc with these same USB 3 ports ! It does not mount, have no activity, no process in console at all, but the LED on external disc is on.. I said 'we' because I'm not in front of the monster, no pics to show you. I just helped for building it, and left the beast over 350 kms from me. I can't test it but the actual user needs it. USB 3 for transfering data, as we are waiting for patching the thunderbolt later on. The machine is working right now for editing. My friend knows how to edit his documentary movies, not to build and play with a hackintosh deep file. So if i need to go back or work on it... I ask you kindly : Do you have some Hints ? Ideas ? Waouw, Solutions ? I'm blocked. Thanks.
  25. ClamAV is finding Osx.Malware.Proton-6377366-1 in the file Clover_v2.4k_r4318.pkg/CloverPrefpane.pkg/Payload The extracted content of the Payload file isn't detected as anything, though. Is this just a false-positive? I downloaded it directly from their SourceForge page via the update dialog. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.
