  1. Hello everybody. I need help to understand and use some patches that Pike R. Alpha has found for XCPM on his Broadwell-E cpu on X99 board. Here's the article. My knowledge is not enough to elaborate it and apply to Clover bootloader (or, I guess to the kernel itself). I think this is going to be huge. Even for Haswell-E and Ivy Bridge-E cpus. He's found some solution to have XCPM without VoodooTSCSync.kext, MSR(0xE2) unlocked BIOSes, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, FakeCPUid flag, etc... My set up (to be in a few day, components on their way) - Motherboard Asus X99-A II - CPU Intel i7 6900K Broadwell-E - RAM 64 GB DDR4 Corsair CMK32GX4M2B3000C15R Vengeance LPX - SSD nvme Samsung MZ-V5P512BW 950PRO m.2 - Video card EVGA nVidia GTX980 TI - ASUS ThunderboltEX II/Dual PCI-E card - OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan Yes, he's on Sierra DP3, but I (and many others, I might say) still am on 10.11.6 El Capitan or earlier (Yosemite). Anybody here? Thanks in advance g.
  2. I leave a video with my results Update 12/12/2015 I have updated the mini guide of USB 3.0 to work with all X99 motherboards. see step 5.B for details. This guide it was tested with a i7-5820k and Gigabyte Ga-X99-UD3P First for install Mac OS X 10.11 in our hackintosh we need to disable a usb 3.0 in the bios. Then we need to use a iMac13,2 definition. When the system has finished installing we boot the first time and install clover. Then we go to the EFI partition and changed the VBoxHfs-64.efi with the HFSPlus.efi that we can download in the following site HFSPlus.efi Ok let get ready for the magic. 1. Well here is the magic with this CPUID we convert our Haswell-E into a IVY BRIDGE CPU.(For this guide works it is important that don't change the fakecpuid number because IvyBridge is the only processor that works with XCPM the IvyBridge-E doesn't works with XCPM) <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>FakeCPUID</key> <string>0x0306A0</string> </dict> 2. This arguments is for use XNU Power Management instead AICPM. <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-xcpm</string> </dict> 3. Now we can changed the definition to MacPro6,1 <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacPro6,1</string> </dict> 4. When you switch to MacPro6,1 definition you may not be able to boot your Hackintosh, because the monitor turns off after the boot process. How to solve this problem? Easy, go to System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/ copy the info.plist to Desktop and change: <key>ConfigMap</key> <dict> <key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key> <string>Config1</string> </dict> To <key>ConfigMap</key> <dict> <key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key> <string>none</string> </dict> Then replace the original info.plist with the modified version. 5.A I made a couple of dummy kext for this guide. These kext are to fix the USB, AHCI, LPC and PlatformPlugin. You need to download and put into the /Library/Extensions X99 USB2.0.zip.zip 5.B To get all USB3.0 working you need to use this binary patch and download my X99 injector. Put the injector into the /Library/Extensions theX99 USB3.0.zip(NOTE: IF YOU USE THIS KEXT DON'T USE THE KEXTS FROM 5A) 6. For Haswell-E is necessary to use the VoodooTSCSync.kext, that you put in /Library/Extensions/ (Download VoodooTSCSync.kext) Open the info.plist of the VoodooTSCSync.kext and edit the IOCPUNumber. <key>IOPropertyMatch</key> <dict> <key>IOCPUNumber</key> <integer>11</integer> </dict> 7. The only thing left to do is create a ssdt for our processor. a. Download the Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh b. The next step is to set the execute/search bits by entering this terminal command: chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh c. Run the ssdtPRGen.sh for first time. ~/ssdtPRGen.sh -c 2 d. As we are using a FAKE CPUID in our processor the ssdtPRGen.sh doesn't works automatic. so we downloaded the missing information manually and put into the ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data. You can use the terminal for open the folder. open ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data X99Haswell.cfg.zip e. Run again the ssdtPRGen.sh using the board-id of iMac14,2 to get C7 state: ~/ssdtPRGen.sh -c 2 -b Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61 Once finished you will have the ssdt.aml on the ~/Library/ssdtPRGen/. Move it to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched 9. Download InsanelyRepairPermission and repair and touch with sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -rt / Restart your hackintosh. 10. It's time to know if your motherboard has MSR 0xE2 locked. Download the DarwinDumper run it and when it finished open the BootLog section and look for the MSR 0xE2 section. MSR 0xE2 is locked, PM patches will be turned on If you found the same text you need to turn on the KernelPm on clover <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KernelPm</key> <true/> </dict> 11. If your motherboard has a 1150 audio chipset I will leave a AppleHDA.kext modified for works after sleep. Remember for this kext works you need to use the DSDT fix and device injection on clover. <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>Fixes</key> <dict> <key>FixHDA_8000</key> <true/> </dict> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <string>01</string> </dict> </dict> X99 1150 AppleHDA.kext.zip
  3. Over the past month I've come across multiple postings about this, but really wanted to begin to dig deep to try and understand what the next steps, if any, could be in solving this scenario: Getting El Capitan running semi-stable on X99 with a 5960X 8-core Processor. I think that there are plenty of us out there based on passed posts/responses by Stinga11 (respect), Rampage Dev (respect), and even heavy hitters getting involved such as Pike R. Alpha, Toleda (respect respect) etc... So I myself am NOT a coder, programmer or UNIX guru BY ANY MEANS, but can follow directions well and am open to helping in any way I can. I'm hoping this thread will attract those than can actually do some good for 5960X users. From what I understand it's the fact that the rollback AppleACPIPlatform.kext from 10.9.5 is causing the issue and cannot be prelinked with the current El Capitan kernel. Does this mean we have to wait for Apple to add support for X99/C612 chipsets? Anyone with insight on this issue from a technical perspective would be greatly appreciated by any/all 5960X owners.
  4. Hello Everyone - As the title states I'm looking to build a dual boot workstation rig. I plan on running Adobe CS and Avid on Windows 7 and FCP and Resolve on OSX. Best case senario I'd like to be able to work with 4K material. After doing some some research I'm almost decided on using the following hardware. CPU: 4930K System Board: P9X79-E WS RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8 x 8GB) DDR3-2133 Memory Storage: 2x SSD Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB (one for each os) 4x Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM in Raid GPU: GTX 780 3GB I guess my first question is how feasable is my goal given the hardware I've chosen above? Another issue I am concerned with is CPU power and long term productivity. Having said that, I am thinking of perhaps going with the GA-Z87X-UD7-TH due to the possibility of upgrading to the Haswell-E chip when it arrives being a LGA 1150 CPU. I also like it's Thunderbolt availability, which as of yet I do not know if a hak rig would even support. So I guess thats the main point of concern for me at this moment. Which socket do I go with and If go with an LGA 1150 board which CPU do I get to hold me over until the Haswell-E arrives later this year. Many thanks in advance for any guiadance or insight you can provide.
  5. Trying to run USB-installer I get this kernel panic: https://imgur.com/ir2yzhq Seems to me like it fails to mount the image, but what could be the cause of that? Any ideas?
  6. So, I haven't been running Hackintosh for a while but decided I wanted to give it new shot. I had previously ran an El Capitan installation, but wasn't all too happy with the performance. Figured I'd go at it again and not give up until it's working well. Anyhow, I made some bastardization of the old El Capitan USB; latest version of Clover, Sierra install and copied the old El Cap config files (kexts, config.plist, SSDT and so on). As I don't remember everything clearly I tried to change as little as possible. It seems to have installed fine and the performance is a bit better than on El Capitan. So that's where I'm at now. I know that's not very detailed information, but I'll be happy to provide more if I just know what would be of interest/relevant. Running some benchmarks the performance is not great. Geekbench gives a decent single core performance but the multi-core is just around 20k (clocked at 4Ghz). Cinebench R15 seems a little better with 1180 points on CPU, but a little tired GPU score of 118 (GTX 970). I'm using the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext so I'm assuming the CPU runs at full power. Where do I begin troubleshooting? Any suggestions? My system specs: Asus X99-A motherboard i7 5820K @4Ghz 2x8Gb RAM Asus GTX 970
  7. Updated to High Sierra and installed the latest webdrivers from nVidia. I'm using a MacPro6,1 SMBIOS so I need the agdpfix to avoid black screen issues. When booting with nv_disable=1 I get the "GeForceSensors: still waiting for accelerator..." message. Booting with the webdrivers seems to resolve that issue, but I'm booting into a black screen so that doesn't really help... Any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it? My system: Asus X99-A 5820K Asus STRIX 1080Ti
