  1. Hi guys. Sometimes I am a complete noob, so I deleted two kexts from S/L/E and now my Asus Q200E laptop with OS X El Capitan boot hangs on kernel panic. I still can enter go through Clover to reach Recovery Mode and use Terminal, so I've put the two kexts on a USB pendrive and after some struggle I've managed to succefully copy them using Terminal, but the boot is still stuck on kernel panic. As I remember, these are the commands I've typed: mount -rw cp -a /Volumes/usb-stick/name.kext /Volumes/my-osx-drive/System/Library/Extensions Is there anything else I should do? Is anything wrong? Should I type some command else? For instance, should I type something to fix permissions and rebuild cache? Thanks a lot!

  3. Hi insanelymac, I'm using a Dell All in one Inspiron 5348. It has a Pentium dual core G3240 Haswell clocked at 3.07 ghz in Mac. I've successfully booted and installed Mac Os X el capitan on an external hdd using a fake cpuid (0x0306E0) its ivybride. But my problem is the drivers. The only thing I could remotely do is wifi. I've installed the kexts for my wifi card. What I need is to install intel hd graphics (desktop) kexts and audio drivers (alc668) I've tried doing every method. Except for Ddst because I don't understand it whatsoever.Also found this thing called xcpm and was wondering if I can just spoof the graphics ids or something like that. Hopefully you guys can help me and thanks!

  7. Hello, I was initially running a Hackintosh that I built and set up using TonyMac as a guide, but at the time I didn’t realize that TonyMac was closed-source. So now I have an Intel chip PC ( Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.5 GHZ 8 MB Cache ) with a Gigabyte motherboard GA-Z87MX-D3H. I would like to build a fresh Hackintosh setup using InsanelyMac as the guide, but I was wondering if there would be issues with my hardware and I was wondering where the best guide on InsanelyMac exists to do that.. I want to install OS X.11 El Capitan, but I notice that my Gigabyte motherboard ( GA-Z87MX-D3H ) has not been listed as a potential component for hardware compatibility for that OS: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.11.6 It is important that I install El Cap because certain software that I use is not compatible with newer OS’es. I notice that this site doesn’t endorse TonyMac, yet it gives a link on the Installation Guide page ( http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Installation_Guides ) to the “Always up to date guide to building a Hackintosh” on Lifehacker ( http://lifehacker.com/the-always-up-to-date-guide-to-building-a-hackintosh-o-5841604 ) which is a link that explains the TonyMac method of installation. And also there isn’t any information supplied about installing OS X11 on the initial link in this paragraph even though a header exists on the page for it. Where would the best information be for setting up an OS X11 installation which does’t use TonyMac? Should I just follow the instructions for a previous version of OS X and hope for the best? Am I better off giving my motherboard the priority or the OS version the priority when it comes to finding and choosing the instructions to follow since instructions don’t seem to exist for using both of them together? This OS X.11 El Capitan forum that I’m posting on now doesn’t have any info about my motherboard — http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forum/503-osx86-1011-el-capitan/ … But the top pinned link on the forum seems to have important information but it doesn’t give enough background information for me to be able to make use of it.. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/ .. But posts in other forums do exist which talk about my specific motherboard, including this post in Italian which explains how to install the previous OS X.10 on my motherboard.. https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=it&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.insanelymac.com%2Fforum%2Ftopic%2F306828-guida-installazione-mac-os-x-101x-clover-usb%2F .. Is the above Italian link the best one I can follow to install OS X.11 even though it is for OS X.10? In other words, where would be the best “InsanelyMac” introductory information be about creating a Hackintosh installer which uses Clover and not TonyMac for my motherboard? Thanks for your help!

  9. I know this is kind of broad, but if I build a workstation that's well supported on High Sierra now, how likely is it to still work well with the next major OSx release next fall? If you had to guess, what % chance do I have of encountering major issues when trying to update next fall? The kinds of issues that would seriously interfere with my day to day work of photo and video editing? For example, kext/kernel panics (is that even a thing still?) or major pieces of hardware suddenly not being supported, and so on... Has migrating your Hackintosh to the latest release has gotten easier in recent years? So for those of you who have been making builds for a while, is going from Sierra to High Sierra causing you fewer problems than Mavericks --> Yosemite for example or Yosemite --> El Capitan etc? Sorry if this is a bit broad and ignorant, but I've been away from the forums for quite a while and just trying to get a sense of how "stable" and "future-proof" Hackintoshes are these days - compared to Apple's own desktops ... I'm OK not updating incrementally ie v13.1 to v13.2 if I need to, but I'm worried about having to start completely from scratch with each new main version.
  10. Introduction With Whatevergreen.kext we already have a workaround for the AMD GPU wakeup issue which first arose with the release of El Capitan, but as a workaround is just a second class solution for a problem I decided to trace back the reason for the issue to it's origin and this post is the result of my research. As I used a R9 270X to do my research, which is the only AMD GPU I have, my patch has only been verified to work properly with this chip but according to the information sources I used, I have no reason to believe it won't work on other AMD GPU's too. In case there is still some uncertainty left in a particular point, I will mention this explicitly. Materials Used The Linux kernel sources of the Radeon driver in order to get a better understanding of the GPU's internals: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon?h=next-20171013 A copy of the ACPI 6.0 specs in order to find out how to dump the chip's control register space. A disassembler, e.g. objdump in Terminal or the trial version of Hopper Disassembler. What I Did As it's been a well known fact that wakeup with AMD GPUs still works with El Capitan and Sierra provided you select the IGPU as primary GPU enabled CSM and use Legacy VBIOS of the AMD GPU in BIOS setup. I was wondering what is different with UEFI VBIOS and decided to I create dumps of the GPU's control register space while using Legacy VBIOS with CSM enabled and while using UEFI VBIOS with CSM disabled in order to find out. Comparing the register space contents it became obvious where the root of the problem lies and how it can be fixed with a DSDT patch. Technical Background Using Legacy VBIOS only the primary GPU is initialized by the VBIOS, i.e. only the IGPU is initialized while the AMD GPU is left untouched. When OS X boots up the framebuffer controller kext will find the AMD GPU in vanilla state, initialize it properly and wakeup will work as expected. That's also the reason why you have to blind boot in this configuration. Using UEFI VBIOS the AMD GPU will be initialized too, provided it has a display connected to one of it's ports. You'll see the BIOS splash screen and will be able to access the BIOS settings but unfortunately macOS's framebuffer controller kext will notice that the GPU has already been initialized and skips the basic setup so that the configuration made by the VBIOS will be used and this is the point where things start to go wrong because this configuration seems to be broken causing wakeup to fail. First of all you have to locate the AMD GPU in your DSDT. In my case it can be found at _SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP but it needs to be renamed to GFX0 for AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext (AGDP) to work properly. This can be done manually or using a Clover patch (this is what I did) and I assume that this problem has been already solved before. The reason why I mention it explicitly here, is that you should be aware of it and don't get confused when your AMD GPU has a different name in the DSDT than in IORegistry. Second, we need to get access to the GPU's control register space. According to the Linux sources, PCI Base Address Register 2 (BAR2) is used to address the control register space on Radeon HD5000, HD6000 and HD7000 GPUs. It's a 64bit base address register but newer GPUs (BONAIRE and above, i.e. Radeon HD8000 and HD9xxx) are different as the use BAR5 instead of BAR2. Unlike BAR2, BAR5 is a 32bit base address register. On my R9 270X (PITCAIRN) BAR5 is zero so that I decided to use this as an indication to use BAR2 but I must confess that I haven't checked if it works for all supported GPUs too. In case my patch doesn't work for you, be aware that this might be a pitfall! The Radeon driver's source code tells us that the first display controller engine's registers can be found starting at offset 0x6800. It also tells us a lot about the meaning of the register contents. Using Legacy VBIOS my R9 270X's display controller engine's registers are still at their default values when macOS boots: 00006800 01 00 00 00 08 80 00 0a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006810 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006820 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006830 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006840 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006850 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006860 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006870 00 00 00 00 08 80 00 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006880 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006890 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068b0 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |........... ... | 000068c0 00 00 00 20 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |... ....... ... | 000068d0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 |... ..... ......| 000068e0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 |... ......... ..| 000068f0 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 |..... ......... | With UEFI VBIOS the display controller engine's registers look quite different. Using the Linux driver sources you can easily make sense out of these values and will discover that I've got a 4K display connected to my R9 270X which is configured to it's native resolution using 32 bits per pixel. 00006800 01 00 00 00 0a 80 00 0a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006810 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0f 00 00 f4 00 00 00 |................| 00006820 f4 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006830 00 00 00 00 00 0f 00 00 70 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 |........p.......| 00006840 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006850 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006860 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006870 00 00 00 00 08 80 00 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006880 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006890 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068b0 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |........... ... | 000068c0 00 00 00 20 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |... ....... ... | 000068d0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 |... ..... ......| 000068e0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 |... ......... ..| 000068f0 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 |..... ......... | The rest was just a little bit of laborious work and trial and error, comparing register contents, understanding their meanings and see what happens when you reset these registers to their default values. If you try to play around with your GPU's control registers a little bit more, be prepared to get a garbled screen for a few seconds. After all I've managed to create a DSDT patch which fixes the wrong registers while preserving screen output during boot and, most important, solves the wakeup issue. The Patch Putting things together I created a DSDT patch to fix the incorrectly initialized registers. With this patch applied, I now have working wakeup with my R9 270X under Sierra (10.12.6) using UEFI VBIOS with CSM disabled in UEFI setup. No kext patches or additional kexts are needed anymore for sleep/wake to work properly with my R9 270X anymore. I can see the BIOS splash screen on my display and can access UEFI setup but the best of all is that there hasn't been a single wakeup issue since I applied this patch.

I'm willing to share all my information in order support further research. Below you can find the register dumps I created attached to this post. FAQ Do I still have to select the IGPU as the primary display? No. Although I haven't tried this on my own, user chh1 confirmed that this is no longer required when using the patch (please see http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328549-tracing-back-the-amd-gpu-wakeup-issue-to-its-origin/?do=findComment&comment=2519884). Nevertheless I still recommend to select the IGPU as primary as there is absolutely no reason not to do so, in particular as the IGPU will be unusable for multimedia acceleration on Haswell based systems when it's not the primary one (IGPU's dev id is different when it's not the primary one). ​When I boot into macOS I always end up with a black screen. Does your patch solve this problem too? No, it doesn't. This patch solves the wakeup issue, nothin more and nothing less. The black screen after boot is either the result of a connector problem (please create a connector patch for your graphics card using the well-known methods) or the result of a problem with AGPM as certain system definitions (in particular recent iMacs) select special configurations for graphics power management. In order to achieve proper operation of AGPM it is crucial that your GPUs have correct names in the DSDT matching those listed in the AGPM configuration for the system definition (IGPU for the Intel GPU and GFX0 for the AMD GPU on iMac15,1, iMac17,1 and iMac18,x). You may patch your DSDT manually or use a Clover DSDT-patch to fix the device names. Credits vit9696 for developing Whatevergreen.kext and pointing me to the right direction.

  11. Buon giorno a tutti ragazzi, Vorrei aggiungere una scheda di rete ethernet gigabit su pcie alla build server che potete leggere in firma sulla quale ho installato El Capitan. Ho trovato questa su amazon che monta un chipset realtek RTL8111G, qualcuno sa dirmi se può andare bene o crea problemi di qualche tipo? https://www.amazon.i...bit pci express Oppure, dato che mi farebbero comodo anche delle usb in più, ho trovato la sorella gemella lan + usb3.0. Il chipset lan è lo stesso di quella sopra, quello delle usb3.0 è VL806, potrebbero funzionare sia le usb che la lan con questa? https://www.amazon.i...bit pci express Grazie in anticipo del vostro aiuto!
  12. I have installed El Capitan on my y510p laptop using Clover. followed this thread Actually everything worked quite well. The time when everything ready, even keep switch windows and mac os also no problem. Then eventually I going back to my windows 10 and did my stuff. In the next day, when I want to boot into Mac OS, then problem come (WHAT? the last boot was just perfect! Why so sudden?) I couldn't boot into my Mac OS. It gave me infinite spinning ball after logging in. OK, fine, I reformatted it. I reinstalled everything and even EFI partition. Everythings worked well again. Then I used back my windows 10 and did my stuff. The next day, SAME THING HAPPENED. I reinstalled everything again. This time I reinstalled both my windows 10 and Mac OS. Wow, Worked well. Then the next day, stucking at apple logo. Above are my reformat processes. Now I'm going to explain my debugging about this. I tried to boot in verbose mode, safe mode. I tried to use disk utility to repair my disk. What I got is "disk could not verified" DiskWarrior expensive, so I used MacDrive 10, tried to repair the disk. Couldn't repair and get "internal result 8". So what should I do, it could not even stand over one night. Is my windows break Mac OS partition? EFI breaks Mac OS partition? Clover break Mac os partition? Hardware problem? but my windows works perfectly. PLEASE help me.
  13. Please Help!

    Hello all! I have been working with this for at least 2 weeks and can't seem to get my El Capitan installer to work. I have looked through so many forums and can't seem to get my El Capitan installer started. It keeps going to a white screen. Here is my config.plist that can show everything that I have tried to get it to work. I really need someone to explain to me what is missing or what needs to be taken away. Thanks in advance!

  15. Hi! I'm about to laying hands into a IBM System X3100 M4 entry-level server, to employ it as audio workstation. The specs of this particular machine are: Processor: Xeon E3-1220v2 Memory: 4 GB (1600 MHz) Video controller: Matrox MGA G200eR2 Memory 16 MB (shared) HDD Hot-swap HDD controllers SAS/SATA Channels 1 Connector int. 2 Connector ext. 0 RAID: M1015 Controller LAN: Intel 82546EB I know I will not go to any place with the G200eR2, so I need a graphics card anyways. I want to know if there could have some problems with this setup, apart of that. Thanks for any help!
  16. Hi I've managed to install OSX El Capitan on my Dell XPS 8000 using lots of tutorials and forums on here so I really appreciate the effort everyone has put into making this resource available. 3 main issues with my hackintosh 1.Audio does not work - I've been recommended to try the ALC887 (non legacy or legacy??) audio driver using the recommended post installer - I guess I have to disable SMC to get this to work. 2. SATA dvd rw and SATA hdd do not appear once in OSX. I need to add an AHCIPort Injector.kext with possible ICH8 dev id to the clover boot loader? but which one? 3. Is the icloud/facetime/appstore/update download for Sierra log in thing an issue on hackintosh? Everytime I set a generated config.plst file with created details from my system it breaks the clover bootloader so I have given up. I'm happy to assist how I managed to get my Dell XPS 8000 to work as far as I have if anyone needs a hand doing so. Thanks in advanced. S
  17. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/31-vmware-tools-for-os-x-darwiniso/ Please tell me, what is the difference between the 8.5.6 and 8.5.5 versions of the VMWare tools for OS X ? Probably by mistake, the changelog for 8.5.6 and 8.5.5 is the same. What is a real changelog between them?
  18. Hello, I just installed el Capitan on my computer with the utility and I wanted to update Clover (like I did when i had Yosemite) to make the sound work in HDMI, fix shutdown issue and the inability to close my DVD player.

  20. Hi guys, I have a HP Probook 4540s with an i5 3380M CPU, 8gb RAM and a 250GB SSD. I have booted to the installer and installed El Capitan to the SSD but after a restart I boot once again via the USB but this time hoping to boot my fresh install from the SSD but it is not there. The UEFI clover boot loader is only showing my USB boot stick and not the SSD with the install of El Capitan on. The SSD was erased and formatted, journaled and GUID. I have made hack's before but never had this issue after installing OS X Any ideas on this please ?

Two days ago I was using a USB 3.0 portable drive doing some colour grading in Da Vinci resolve. Quite suddenly, the mouse stopped working and then a couple of seconds later the system reset itself. I have no idea what happened but when the system rebooted a message popped up and for a tense few seconds I was worried the drive was ruined. The message said something like 'drive connected to mac but does not have power' or something along those lines but specifically indicating that I should plug the device in to a port that has power. This was the same port the drive was plugged in to when the reset happened and so I unplugged it and moved it to the port above and it worked. I was curious about the issue today and didn't have any critical work to do so I had a test with another bus powered drive that also previously worked fine. This one also had not encountered any dodginess like the sudden system reset either. I plugged it in to the port that I knew had caused issue and received the same message. I plugged it in to the port immediately adjacent and also received the same message. The thing is the drive is spinning so it *is* receiving power and the fact that it's giving me that message suggested to me that is registering on at least some level with OSx. Anyone know what I should do?
  22. I changed i3-530 to xeon x3460. First i change cpu section with cpu section of i7-860. During loading the signal on the monitor vanishes (black screen). Then i maked cpu section from linux SSDTs - same problem. I try boot with imac and macpro smbios. There are no errors in logs. Boot fine only with nv_disable=1 in low resolution. I think problem with GPU section in DSDT. How can i fix it without installing clover?

  24. I have a working Niresh Yosemite 10.10.5 install on my PC with Clover UEFI as the bootloader. I'd like to update it to El Capitan if possible. I've tried to do it through the Install El Capitan update app as I heard that it works as long as you have Clover. The program worked fine but when I try to boot into the Installer through Clover, I get the black Apple screen (without loading bar) followed by a black screen with a circle and a slash through it. I booted in verbose and got a message saying something about it not being able to boot. Any suggestions or other ways to upgrade to El Capitan?
