  1. Hello everyone, I'm posting a new thread on behalf of myself and a few other members here (konrad11901, blackswords and Dmitry R). We've been experiencing an unstable system after wake. My system is ab Asrock Z97M OC Formula with an i5-4670k, konrad11901 has an MSI B85-G43 Gaming with an i5-4460, blackswords has an MSI PC Mate Z97 with an i5-4690k and Dimitry R has an Asrock Z170M-ITX ac with an i3-6100. I recently got my Z97M OC Formula to replace a GA-Z87MX-D3H which suffered from corrupted memory after long sleep. I'm booting using Clover, with a patched DSDT, and an SSDT generated with PikerAlpha's ssdtPRGen.sh. I've attached the files of my configuration. Soon after wake, the log shows messages such as: 2016-03-29 11:23:21,000 kernel[0]: Unsynchronized TSC for cpu 1: 0x0000000193273184, delta 0x18e0a1aca 2016-03-29 11:23:21,000 kernel[0]: Unsynchronized TSC for cpu 2: 0x0000000193428ced, delta 0x18e0a1aed 2016-03-29 11:23:21,000 kernel[0]: Unsynchronized TSC for cpu 3: 0x00000001935de52f, delta 0x18e0a1aed followed by process crashes, usually culminating in a launchd crash, causing a kernel panic and a reboot: *** Panic Report ***panic(cpu 1 caller 0xffffff800cb9aaa4): launchd exited (signal 8, exit status 0 ) … Thread 3 crashed … We have noticed that the output of pmset -g log | grep -i failure points to various PCIe devices, most notably the graphics card. Here's my output at the moment: 2016-03-29 13:11:50 +0200 Failure Drivers Failure panic during wake due to PEG0(NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA),IGPU(): 2016-03-29 22:45:40 +0200 Failure Drivers Failure panic during wake due to PEG0(NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA),IGPU(): With VoodooTSCSync.kext, we've noticed launchd crashes less often, meaning waking from sleep works, apart from the other processes that do crash. My theory is that there's something wrong with the firmware of our boards, or an issue with the DSDT or with CPU power management. This underlying problem is causing a TSC sync issue, which causes problems with PCIe devices as well as processes. Does anyone know the cause? Are there more people with this issue? And can anyone explain the relationship between the TSC, the HPET and the RTC? Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed any light on this issue. Kind regards, Pieter Edit: I forgot to mention that konrad11901 discovered that when using hibernation (hibernatemode=25) in stead of sleep there are no crashes, but of course, this isn't an ideal solution.

  2. 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.

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.
  3. This is a kext correcting certain issues at userspace level. At this moment it is only interesting for Ivy owners and newer. Homepage | Historical background It is likely reasonable to collect some stats with hardware reports (which ones worked ok, which ones failed). Please use the following format: CPU Model, GPU Model, IGPU Model (including ig-platform-id), OS X version. P. S. Read the FAQ before asking any questions.
  4. How to Install MacOSX 10.9 Mavericks on a MSI GS70 Laptop This guide will show you how to get a basic functioning install of 10.9 Mavericks on a GS70 - a thin, fast, gaming laptop by MSI (details here, hw specs below). Not all hardware is functioning, please check list below, and share if you find ways to get things working. Please keep posts focused on problems, helpful hints, and solutions. FYI, my machine is triple booting Linux Mint, Windows 8, and MacOSX 10.9. I mostly use MacOS to fix my friends' computers and for iOS development, not everyday use. I haven't taken the time to get sleep, mic input, etc. working properly. Hopefully some folks can use this as a base to get more things functional. Big thank you to RehabMan, rockinron_1, EMlyDinEsH, and the makers of Clover, Kext Wizard, DSDT Editor, and all the other great, necessary tools. Working Basic Install Trackpad (multi-touch) Keyboard (including some function keys and glowy keyboard) Sound (output speakers/headphones) USB Bluetooth Shutdown Integrated Intel Graphics Not Working Yet Internal wireless Ethernet Sound input Sleep NVidia accelerated graphics with optimus Needed Tools: A working MacOS installation Mavericks install dmg The latest Clover (version 2330 at time of writing): http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/files/Installer/ Kext Wizard: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/253395-kext-wizard-easy-to-use-kext-installer-and-more/ Clover Configurator: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/49-clover-configuratorconverter/ FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from Vanilla Guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-install-guide/ mach_kernel from RehabMan:https://www.google.fr/#q=mach_kernel+from+RehabMan Patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze: https://www.google.fr/search?q=Patched+AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext+from+Mieze&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:fr:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=6e61UrigAoyG8gOex4DAAQ Elan Touchpad drivers, ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext from EMlyDinEsH:http://http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ An 8gb+ USB key A usb mouse and keyboard (possibly optional...) VoodooHDA kext (not sure if this is necessary) Step 1: Create the USB Installer (taken mostly from Vanilla Install guide) In a previous MacOSX install, use DiskUtility to Partition a USB disk with 1 HFS+ Partition, make sure GUID partion map is selected in the options. Mount your Mavericks dmg image Go to the mounted image, right click on "Mavericks.app" and choose "Show Contents" Go to "Contents/Shared Support" and mount InstallESD.dmg Mount BaseSystem.dmg by typing the following in terminal: open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg In DiskUtility, go to the "OS X Base System", Restore it to your USB disk. Navigate to /System/Installation on your USB drive. Delete the “Packages” link, then copy the Packages folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. Copy the following kext's to /System/Library/Extensions on your USB stick. FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext files from the Vanilla Guide The patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze (optional, untested) You can try copying the Elan Touchpad drivers as well, read Step 5 "Touchpad and Keyboard" section below and delete approriate kexts, this could save you from needing a USB keyboard/mouse during installation Install Clover to the usb drive, customize the install with the following options: Bootloader->Install boot0af in MBR CloverEFI->64-bits SATA Themes->Choose one (Black_Green_Moody is nice) Drivers64->XhciDxe-64 Drivers64UEFI->OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Copy the mach_kernel file from RehabMan to the root of the USB drive Step 2: Installing OS X Boot into the installer, I use reFind bootloader and the USB disk just shows up when it's plugged in, you should be able to select the boot order in your bios to boot from the USB key if you don't have another bootloader installed Select "Options". Do the following: under the DSDTfixmask menu, disable "fix display" under the Graphics menu, select "Inject EDID" (inject Intel should already be selected) Now boot into the installer (return to the menu with all the OS icons and select the USB key. It'll read "Boot Mac OSX HFS+" or something) If you did not install the Elan kexts, you will have to use a USB keyboard and mouse for the install. Install OS X (use a HFS+ partition on a drive partitioned with a GUID partition map, MacOSX is a good name for the partition) Boot back into the installer like you just did early (yes select all those options) Select "Utilities" from the top and then Terminal You need to copy all those kext's you installed on the USB drive to your new installation partition. Type in the following lines, replacing MacOSX with the actual name of the partition you installed to (hint: after entering the first one, press the up arrow to save yourself some typing): cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ Likewise, copy the patched mach_kernel from your USB drive to the install, replacing the original- cp –R /mach_kernel /Volumes/MacOSX/ Now type "reboot" and hit enter Step 3: Intial Reboot Reboot again into the installer, choosing the same options as before BUT boot from the hard-drive, not the USB drive As MacOSX 10.9 pops up, do a little dance of joy. Install Clover onto your hard-drive, choosing the same options as before. Install Clover Configurator and run it. Do the following: Go to File->Open on the top bar and choose /EFI/Clover/config.plist (this is your current Clover configuration) In the ACPI tab, deselect FixDisplay. Make sure the DSDT name is DSDT.aml Under Graphics, select Inject EDID Choose File->Save (now you no longer have to select those options at boot time) Step 4: Touchpad and Keyboard Download EMlyDinEsH's Elan drivers (latest is 2.8.3 at time of writing): http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ In finder, go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete the following if you can find them: ApplePS2Controller, VoodooPS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, ApplePS2Keyboard and anything that says Elan Touchpad. Using Kext Wizard, install ApplePS2Controller and ApplePS2ElanTouchpad kexts Reboot and enjoy. My keyboard glows,using my windows settings. Also, note: the touchpad is a little jerky... I think this is because of the graphics driver, but it's functional. Step 5: Ext4 (for linux peeps) Buy or try the trial of Paragon Extfs... I couldn't get anything else to read my partitions. They overcharge, buy hey, it works... Step 6: Audio (output) A bit complicated. You need to patch your DSDT, install an updated HDA driver, and maybe install VoodooHDA. I had VoodooHDA installed before I did the rest and I just left it installed... I am not sure if it is required or makes things worse (maybe input works without it?) I dunno. I would try without it first and then install it after if you need it. Download a Java runtime for 10.9 (google JavaForOSX2013-05.dmg) Download DSDT Editor (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/223205-dsdt-editor-and-patcher/ ) Download RehabMan's audio 12 layout patch: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/blob/master/audio_HDEF-layout12.txt Edit the patch and remove all the instances of "\n" Run DSDT editor and Choose File->Extract DSDT from the top bar, this will get your DSDT from your BIOS Choose Patch->Open from the top bar, and select the audio 12 patch Select Patch Now choose File->Save DSL from the top bar and save this to your Desktop as DSDT.aml Now copy this to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin Now download and use Kext Wizard to install the AppleHDA.kext from RehabMan found here: (reference: here) Restart and cheer! If it doesn't work, or you want more controls, install VoodooHDA. Make sure PCM is turned up in the VoodooHDA control panel thing. If you need mic input, etc. working, the DSDT patch is probably where you need to be digging. Post results please. Step 7: USB Wireless You will need to either install a wireless card that works with MacOS (advanced, warranty-voiding, numerous guides found elsewhere on this forum) or else buy yourself a compatible usb wireless adapter (easy, cheap). I bought this one for 8$ and it works perfectly with the drivers on the CD it came with: GMYLE Wireless 11n USB Adapter Step 8: Final notes If the computer goes to sleep it will plant, so go into the power settings and tell it not to go to sleep! (if you fix this, please post here) No networking... buy yourself a Mavericks compatible usb network adapter (will let you know when I get one working) Give credit and donations to the fine people that made these tools and patches, I just assembled them to make it work on this dreamy computer. I will try to post a zip file with some of these kexts, etc. later. If you are having trouble, in the clover boot options, add "-v" (without quotes) to the boot options. This will give a more verbose output and may indicate the issue If you are not using Clover, the busratio for this computer is 24. Adding "busratio=24" to the boot-up options (without quotes) might help for other loaders (Clover autodetects this) If you get some extra hardware working, please let us know! MSI GS70 Hardware Specifications: CPU: i7-4700HQ (2.4GHz, Haswell) Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Accelerated Graphics: NVidia GTX 765M Integrated Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600 (8086:0416) Audio: Creative X-Fi.

  8. 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!
  9. I recently acquired a Samsung U28E510 monitor (4K UHD) for my hackintosh and had a hard time finding the information I needed to get it working with my integrated Intel HD 4600 graphics (desktop H97 chipset with i7-4790s) at full resolution. This post will share how I got it working. As a new hackintosher, a lot of the information I found was confusing because it assumed I knew how the pieces fit together, I was using Sierra 10.12.6 (iMac15,1 SMBIOS) and already had the HD 4600 working with full acceleration on my 1080p monitor. When I first plugged in the new monitor, I could get at most 2560x1440 @ 60Hz from MacOS using the DisplayPort cable that came with the monitor. Using a Linux Live USB, I could get 3840x2160 @ 60Hz so I knew the hardware was working and capable. My old config used the kexts Lilu, Shiki and IntelGraphicsFixup via Clover injection. I was injecting the ig-platform-id 0x0d220003, and on the desktop "<Apple Icon> -> About This Mac" showed that my graphics were allocated 1536MB. I added CoreDisplayFixup.kext to avoid the pixel clock limit in the CoreDisplay framework. Since that required a newer version of Lilu, I downloaded updated source for Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup and Shiki and rebuilt all of those along with CoreDisplayFixup. The hardest part for me to understand, was why MacOS wouldn't offer me the option to go above 1440p resolution. I could get to 2160p with SwitchResX, but it wouldn't stick across reboots and I was seeing a phantom display on my system when I used that app. I spent a couple of days trying various things, and upgraded to High Sierra 10.13.1 along the way. I eventually stumbled across a post at RampageDev, which explained how the magical ig-platform-id value is used -- which ended up being the key to my problem! I don't know if the bits in 0x0d220003 are important, but for my purposes that value is used as a key to a table in AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext which is used to initialize the HD 4600. This includes attributes such as buffer sizes and memory allocations which are needed for large, 4k displays. The link helped me understand the contents and format of that table, which in turn helped me understand the problem. By patching the kext via Clover, I could have MacOS configure the graphics hardware so that it would work as I wanted. The patch itself is added to config.plist -> KernelAndKextPatches -> KextsToPatch (it's in an <array>): <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Framebuffer for 4K display</string> <key>Find</key> <data> AwAiDQADAwMAAAACAAAwAQAAAAAAAABgmRQ= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferAzul</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> AwAiDQADAwMAAAAEAAAgAgAAAAAAAACAmRQ= </data> </dict> I won't go into the grisly details here; if you're technical and want to understand, you can figure it out from the patched values. Basically, I'm increasing three values to accommodate the larger display: The RAM allocation The framebuffer memory size The VRAM allocation Once I enabled this patch in Clover and added CoreDisplayFixup.kext, I was able to boot into glorious 4K UHD. I also see the retina resolutions in the display settings. It's possible that I did not need to change all three fields. I changed them all on the first try, and things seem to be working well. I would be happy to update this post if an expert can tell me a better way to do it. Note that this does allocate 2GB of RAM for the Intel graphics, but that's fine with me since I have 16GB and plan to upgrade to 32GB anyway. I'll probably end up getting a discrete GPU when I upgrade the RAM, but this patch helps me stay productive while I save for the upgrade. I suspect that this approach could be packaged into a Lilu plugin for those that prefer to do their patches from kexts rather than the Clover config. Similarly, some of the Lilu plugins I'm using could probably be implemented via Clover patches. At this point, I'm just happy to have something that works.

  11. Hi All, I am currently running on OS X 10.13.1 (High Sierra) and everything works perfectly, besides sleep... I've scoured the internet for an answer but can't figure out how to force my computer to stay asleep (seriously, it's like an infant that's consumed too much sugar). Keeping the computer on 24/7 is wasting so much energy. Here are my specifications: CPU: I7-4790k (Haswell) Memory: 32gb DDR3 GPU: Nvidia 1080ti Gigabyte Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI Network Card: TP-Link Archer T9E (PCI-E Wireless AC) Cooler: Corsair H110i GTX (Corsair Link Connected to USB Header) HDD: 4 SSD's Other Accessories: Oculus Rift, C920 Webcam, Yeti USB Microphone Here are the Kexts/items I've installed into the computer: Clover (UEFI Boot Mode), Drivers (VoodooHDA V2. 9.0d10), 3rd Party SATA, FakeSMC, FakeSMC Plugins, 3rd Party USB 3.0, 7/8/9 Series USB Support, NVIDIA Web Drivers Boot Flag Here is the output of "pmset -g assertions": https://imgur.com/a/Zo4kG Here is what I've done so far: Changes Standby, Autopoweroff, StandbyDelay values Went to BIOS, disabled Wake on Lan Option Changed the darkwake settings to darkwake = no and darkwake = 8,9.. Cried myself to sleep out of frustration At the moment, I turned the hibernatemode to 25 and that seems to shut the computer down automatically. The downside to this is, I need to wait for the computer to completely boot up each time it goes into Hibernate..
  12. Greetings, I am attempting to get 10.8.5 installed onto a new system I am building, however after many unsuccessful attempts to load the installer, I have discovered the downloaded version I keep getting from Apple is 10.8.4 . 10.8.5 would be ideal, as I am using a Haswell based Core i7. Is there a way for me to patch my current install, and or, force the download from the app store to be 10.8.5? Thanks for any assistance!
  13. 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.

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
  14. This thread is a walkthrough on how to to install Yosemite. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS Here are my system specs below: Intel Core i7-4770K (De-lidded) EVGA Z87 FTW (ATX) Silverstone SST-ST1200-G Evolution Strider Gold 1200W Noctua NH-U12S ASUS BW-12B1ST Western Digital VelociRaptor 500GB OCZ Vertex 4 512 GB Patriot Dual Bay 2.5" SATA 3.5" drive bay (for SSD) EVGA GeForce GTX680 SC Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 2400MHz My case: Modified Apple Powermac G5 What is needed: The attachment and links to essential software included in this thread 8GB+ USB Stick OS X 10.10.0 Yosemite (14A389) Another Mac computer Update to the latest BIOS A computer running an Intel Processor STEP 1: BIOS SETTINGS for Z87 1. AHCI mode and CD/DVD first boot priority are set in the BIOS by default. Ensure your settings match these in your Z87 BIOS: a. Go to ADVANCED → SATA Configuration → All settings should set at default; notice that your disks won’t show up here if they’re connected to black Marvell SATA ports b. Go to BOOT→ Set Boot Priority→ Set CD/DVD is 1st Boot and USB Key as 2nd Boot; Go to Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities to set the boot sequence of the available hard disks. c. Go to OVERCLOCK → CPU Configuration; there is no option for Vt-d, so disable Intel Virtualization Technology (during the installation). d. Go to ADVANCE→ USB Configuration; XHCI Mode = Smart Auto, XHCI Hand-off = Enabled, EHCI Hand-off = Enabled. e. [OPTIONAL] Go to MEMORY; Under Memory Multiplier Configuration, set Performance Memory Profiles to XMP Profile 1. Save and Reset. STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF YOSEMITE 10.10 FOR Z87 1. Download OS X v10.10.0 (14A389) Mavericks [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install OS X Yosemite" → Show Package Contents → Contents → ShareSupport → Double click to mount "InstallESD.dmg". 2. Once "OS X Install ESD" appears, use ShowHiddenFiles to show hidden files. 3. Now you will see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... Get prepared to use the USB stick with at least 8GB. 4. Open Disk Utility, and format the USB stick by highlighting its icon on the left and clicking the Partition tab, click Current, and choose 1 Partition. 5. Click Options... Choose Master Boot Record. No need to name it (the default's OK), choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as its format type. Click Apply then Partition. 6. Select and highlight the volume "OS X Base System", click "Restore" at the top-right, drag the volume into "Source" field, and drag the USB [untitled] partition (you just created) to the "Destination" field where you will restore the image: click "Restore" then "Erase"... 7. After the process is complete, you'll now have (2) "OS X Base System" present in Finder. Eject the image "BaseSystem.dmg" and close Disk Utility. 8. On the remaining volume "OS X Base System" (USB stick), go to System/Installation and delete Packages symlink. 9. Open "OS X Install ESD" in a new Finder window, and copy the Packages folder to System/Installation folder inside "OS X Base System". 10. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist and BaseSystem.dmg from "OS X Install ESD" and copy it to the volume root. 11. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17 to extract "kernel" from "OS X Install ESD/Packages/Essential.pkg [/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. 12. CPU power management is handled directly by the BIOS and not with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Booting the USB installer on a Haswell system will be followed by an instant reboot. To resolve the early reboot problem for Haswell: a. Patch the vanilla kernel located on your USB installer: Drag and copy kernel from the USB installer to the desktop. Open Terminal and type: cd ~/Desktop Apply the following perl script by copying and pasting into Terminal: #1: perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel #2: perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel #3: perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|g' kernel b. Replace the kernel with the patched version on your USB installer. 13. Now copy both NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, FakeSMC.kext (Extra_MacPro3,1.zip), and VoodooPS2Controller.kext into System/Library/Extensions of "OS X Base System". 14. Delete following kexts from System/Library/Extensions/: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext 15. If using more than 4GB of ram remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext from S/L/E; it blocks booting on WD RE3 disks and causes following kernel panic: AppleTyMCEDriver::start coreVIDPID = 0xffffffff Number of packages = 1 Number of cpus = 8 memory 16. Extract OSInstaller(MBR)+OSInstall.mpkg 10.10.x, and copy and replace OSInstall.mpkg [patched for MBR] into System/Installation/Packages, and copy and replace OSInstall [patched for MBR] into System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OSInstaller.framework/Versions/A/OSInstaller folder. 17. Download and install Chameleon 2.3svn r2437. Remember to click on "Change Install Location" and select the USB stick ("OS X Base System") as destination, or they will be installed on the running system. a. Unzip the Extra_MacPro3,1 zip file and drag the Extra folder to the root of USB boot. 18. Use ShowHiddenFiles to hide the hidden files, and quit the application. 19. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first, and boot with the flag -f npci=0x2000 and install Yosemite on the hard disk of choice. 20. Once installer is finished, it will automatically restart the system. Boot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed Yosemite and type kernel boot flag -f npci=0x2000. [NOTE: If you receive a "CMOS checksum error"; simply reapply the ACHI settings back into the BIOS, save and exit.] 21. After installing 10.10, the drive it's on will hold a vanilla kernel. You will need to replace it with the patched version to prevent the instant reboot problem from reoccurring. Copy over a patched kernel onto the root of a secondary USB stick. Use the USB installer to access Terminal and type the following commands: a. Verify secondary USB stick location: § diskutil list b. Mount it: § diskutil mount /dev/diskXsY e.g.: diskutil mount /dev/disk2s1 Terminal will confirm the name of the disk mounted c. Select directory of USB stick's root: § cd /Volumes/USBStick/ e.g.: cd /Volumes/”NO NAME”/ d. Copy over patched kernel § cp kernel "/Volumes/NameOfOSXDisk/System/Library/Kernels/kernel" § e.g.: cp kernel "/Volumes/YOSE/System/Library/Kernels/kernel" 22. Now restart using the USB installer and select the Yosemite install drive at the boot menu screen and boot with flag -v npci=0x2000. STEP 3: Mac OS X 10.10 Post-Installation on Z87 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the Mac OS X Welcome screen. a. Select your country then click "right arrow" to go to the next screen. b. Select "My computer does not connect to the Internet." c. Select "Don’t transfer any information now". d. Agree to “Terms and Conditions”. e. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. f. Wait a moment for the OS X desktop to load. g. When prompted to back up any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. STEP 4: Mac OS X 10.10 Post-Installation on Z87 (Continued) 1. Install Chameleon 2.3svn r2437 on the Yosemite install partition you plan to boot from. 2. Copy the Extra folder from the USB stick to the root Yosemite partition and reboot Yosemite using -f npci=0x2000 without the USB stick. 3. Edit the Boot.plist in the Extra folder with the following lines: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EHCIacquire</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>ForceHPET</key> <string>No</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>/System/Library/Kernels/kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f npci=0x2000 kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>No</string> <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>1</string> <key>PCIRoot</key> <string>1</string> <key>Rescan</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>Default</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> <key>UHCIreset</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>USBBusFix</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Wake</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist> Remember to remove any variation of the following lines: <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>Extra/smbios.plist</string> or <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>smbios.plist</string> It restores your correct system profile instead of the "iMac Summer 2001/SOMESRLNUMBER" model. The bootloader automatically reads the Smbios.plist in the Extra folder by default. 4. Use Chameleon Wizard 4.3.2 to generate new SMBios.plist with a VALID serial. 5. Download Nvidia Mac Quadro Certified Drivers 343.01.01f01 to enable NVIDIA Graphics Cards that don't work OOB. This fixes OpenCL & allows GK110B cards to NOT crash for Preview, etc. Install the drivers and restart. a. Go to the NVIDIA Driver Manager menu bar at the top, change the settings to use Web drivers, and restart. 6. Download and install CUDA 6.5.25 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.10 support. 7. Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download the Pike’s script (modified for i-core processors) and put it on your desktop. Use it only for the PC it is running from. The script reads some information specific about your CPU and its number of cores. b. Open Terminal and type "sudo" then leave a space and drag the script file into the Terminal window then leave a space and type in the Turbo Speed (Maximum Turbo Frequency) for your processor and then press enter. e.g., i7-980 type code: sudo /Users/"YourUsername"/Desktop/ssdtPRGen.sh -TURBO 3600 Type your password when prompted and press Enter. a. A decompiled file called SSDT.aml will generate in a hidden folder "tmp". Type "open /tmp" (no quotations) to reveal its location and place it into your Extra folder. b. Make sure your Boot.plist has GeneratePStates/GenerateCStates to Yes and just set DropSSDT to Yes. It makes the generic SSDT match the processor TDP and desired top turbo freq. 8. Install the following kext in the Extra/Extensions folder and afterwards use Kext Utility to repair permissions: a. AHCI_3rdParty_SATA (Orange Icon Fix) b. AppleIntelE1000e 3.0.4.1 (Intel Wired Ethernet) c. [OPTIONAL] HWSensors 6.11.1328 Binaries (with FakeSMC) § Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. § Install iStat Pro 4.92 r2, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. 9. Install the following kexts associated with Realtek ALC898 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda) in the S/L/E folder and afterwards use Kext Utility to repair permissions: a. Patch in Place (native AppleHDA.kext) – 10.10+ § Download audio_realtekALC-100.command.zip and extract "audio_realtekALC-100.command" folder. § Verify Kernel flag kext-dev-mode=1 is in Boot.plist and AppleHDA.kext is native (vanilla) before running (double-click) "audio_realtekALC-100.command". § The patched kext will automatically be generated in a folder called "audio_ALC898-10.10" on the desktop. b. No DSDT/Audio Kext Enabler (HDAEnabler1.kext - Audio ID injection). HDAEnabler1.kext injects Audio_ID = 1 for non-DSDT systems. 10. The following features are enabled by default without any additional patching needed: § No DSDT needed § USB 3.0 works OOB § Sleep and Auto-sleep (standby mode) work OOB § Shutdown works OOB § Bluetooth works OOB 11. Use the following scripts to patch the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext to work with locked wrmsr BIOS: a. Download the patch and extract its content to the desktop. b. Type: cd (space after "cd"), and drag the AICPMPatch folder onto the Terminal, press Enter. c. Search out wrmsr (list) § perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement d. Patch wrmsr § sudo perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement --patch e. Lastly, update cache § sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions f. Remove NullCPUPowerManagement.kext (and any equivalents) from E/E, repair permissions and reboot with -v boot flag. Apple's native SpeedStep drivers will initiate after rebooting the system. 12. It is recommended to patch the vanilla AppleRTC.kext found in S/L/E, an unconditional jump over the rtcWrites() in updateChecksum() to prevent CMOS resets. Apply the following perl script by copying and pasting it into Terminal: a. sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x2e\x0f\xb6|\xeb\x2e\x0f\xb6|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC STEP 5: Updating to 10.10.1 1.

    Hackintosh Build

    Hi guys, I was thinking about building a mid-high range hackintosh and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out if my build would work? It will consist of - Intel Core i5 4440 3.10GHz Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance Corsair 500W CXM Builder Modular 80 Plus Bronze PSU Fractal Design Core 1000 MicroATX Case Seagate 500GB Barracuda Internal Hard Drive OCZ 240GB Agility 3 2.5" SATA-III SSD (Already have from current PC) Any help/suggestions will be appreciated Ebuyer List - http://www.ebuyer.com/lists/list/248731 (Igrore the 500GB HDD)
  17. I tried making a USB Installer for Mavericks DP1, I prepared a GUID'd 16GB USB key with the Mavericks Installation base and installed Chameleon 2.2 svn r2262 on it. I tried booting it on the following machine: Core i7 4770 (not 4770K) Asus Q87M-E motherboard (Intel Q87 chipset) 32GB RAM GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1024 MB BIOS/UEFI settings: disable iGPU, CPU State C, disable Vd-m, disable Vt-x, SATA AHCI mode, USB storate auto mode (also tried force HDD and force CD-ROM), Boot device USB in legacy BIOS mode (also tried UEFI mode). When it tried to boot off my USB key, I get a text cursor '_' in the upper left conner of the screen, the cursor drops to one line bellow, then it goes closer to the middle of the screen, then it disappears and nothing happens. I never even reach the bootloader's text menu. I also create an Mavericks installer on a SATA hard drive, put Chameleon on it and tried boot it from an internal SATA controller. Same result. I know the USB key is properly made since I tested it on my Core 2 Duo system and it boots fine. Could it be a compatibility problem between Chameleon and my motherboard or chipset? All the other posts I see for Haswell systems seem to be based on the Z87 chipset. I am planning on trying with RevoBoot. I also heard you can use GRUB2 to load the OS X kernel directly? If any one else with a Q87 system out there can try Chameleon, your results would be appreciated. As would any solution to my problem.
  18. After several attempts, I have successfully installed Mavericks on ASUS Z87-K, with everything working, in order, with a GPT partition. Configuration: ASUS Z87-K motherboard Core i7 (4770) nVidia 650 Ti Steps: 1. Prepare the installation flash drive, using myHack - (using an existing Mac or Hackintosh, with Mavericks app [or] installESD.dmg); choose default options for most myHack prompts. Choose No for MBR Patch prompt. 2. Get the mach_kernel file from this thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293503-haswell-early-reboot-mavericks-locked-msrs-and-hp-envy-15-j063cl-i7-4700mq/ 3. Overwrite the mach_kernel on the installation flash drive using the mach_kernel downloaded. 4. Boot with the USB flash drive. At the Chameleon prompt, select the USB flash drive and type GraphicsEnabler=No -v 5. After landing in the Mavericks installation screen, select the language and select Utilities->Disk Utility. Create a GPT partition in the target drive and erase the partition using Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format. Make sure this is the primary partition and Boot is enabled for the partition. 6. Exit the Disk Utility. Install Maverics. 7. Once the installation is complete, dont press restart. Click Utilities->Terminal. cd to /Volumes/<your_flash_drive_name> 8. Execute this from terminal: cp mach_kernel /Volumes/<your_target_drive_name>/ 9. Exit terminal. Allow restart (or restart from menu). 10. Boot using the flash drive again. At the Chameleon prompt, select your target drive and type GraphicsEnabler=No -v 11. Complete name, password and other start-up formalities. 12. Once in OSX home screen, double click on myHack app (in the Application folder, in Finder). Choose - Install Chameleon Boot Loader and select your target drive. (myHack would have done this already, during installation - but it is a bit hit and miss!). 13. Download Realtek 8111 kext from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/88-realtekrtl8111-binaryzip/ 14. Use Kext Utility/Kext Wizard to install Realtek 8111 kext 15. Use Chameleon Wizard to install MacPro 5.1 profile (SMBIOS) 16. To get the audio working, use this: (or) use Mul___st. 17. Edit /Extra/Org.chameleon.Boot.plist using TextEdit and change GraphicsEnabler=No (default is Yes) Thats all. You can remove the flash drive and boot to your new OSX drive. Everything should be working. Good Luck!
