  1. Firstly, this is not a guide, although it probably contains enough information to get your X299 hackintosh working. I'm not some flash software guy so you won't get good answers if you ask something technical. Secondly, huge credit to fabiosun. This is his X99 clover and it worked on my X299. So this is just a starting point and I'm looking forward to your help to make it better This was the easiest Hackintosh I have ever made! As background, my last hack was an X99 i7-5960x, with an R9 Nano and helper card. First hack was an X58 with xeon 6 core cpu X299 HackinCAD specs: Gigabyte X299 Aorus Gaming 9 i9-7900x Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Samsung NVME 960 evo (1tb) and backup Samsung 850 evo (1tb) SSD 32Gb 4x8gb Gskill DDR4 RGB (colourful!) EKWB 420 + 360 rad for cooling (which is really necessary for this CPU) Method: On my X99 hack I copied the whole EFI onto the most current Clover bootloader EFI. I pretty well stripped out the kexts and patches from that EFI and made a new and vanilla High Sierra install. Things to watch - Something on my previous HS install was borking it, possibly some modified kexts in S/L/E to do with my Nano, hence the new install. I used migration assistant after that, so all good. HWSensors in the plugins folder in FakeSMC was causing kp, had to remove. Still no Power management. The i9-7900 is sitting on full noise, using 140 watts and 60 deg even with my loop! I'm working on this but as I've pointed out, I'm not very technical, just stubborn. It's winter here and the CPU is warming my entire office, so it's not all bad. I have to use the normal heater now. Full speedstep working! Thanks again fabiosun The vega worked oob. I have nothing flagged or ticked. Boot screen is good, clover menu good. No boot to black or helper or igpu. BUT! It's less than half as fast in Cinebench as my old Nano. I'm hoping it'll get better as the drivers mature. My only boot flags are -V and npci=0x2000. This is how to do it (in pictures): Note 1: Some of the patches, efis and kexts might not be needed, I haven't tested them all yet. Note 2: Kernel patches to do with power management didn't work and can be removed. Note 3: I've since changed back to Mac Pro 6,1 with no issues. Since updated the SMBIOS to iMac 19,1 - you'll see it in the clover attachment. I've removed ALL of the kext and kernel patches and some of the kexts. Next up I'll do an overclock, now that idle has gone from 61 to 21 degrees. edit: head on over to guides to see my "How to overclock the skylake x" now running at 4.8Ghz http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327056-guide-how-to-overclock-your-skylake-x/ After that I'll test the drivers. edit: drivers pruned down, still no patches and now no speedstep kext, still have 10 speedsteps. Check in the clover attachment for kexts and drivers. CLOVER.zip (refined and updated 12 Sept 2017)
  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. NOTE: If you come across issues try the following: ○ Use Terminal to ensure Haswell.cfg is in the 'Data' folder by typing: open ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data ○ You can remove any previously generated and downloaded script file by typing: sudo rm -R ~/Library/ssdtPRGen ○ You can rerun another freshly downloaded ssdtPRGen.sh script with your processor type: ./ssdtPRGen.sh ○ For additional help see also: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -help 14. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Mount the EFI partition to copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.23.1417: Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. NO COMPATIBLE VERSION FOR 10.13 I KNOW OF! 15. Install iStat Pro 4.9, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. • OPTIONAL: Fixing Time Sync issue with macOS/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7, 8 & 10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to macOS, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time. NOTE: Avoid changing the time in macOS if you are running a multi-boot system. You only have to modify the time in the BIOS and in Windows followed by enabling the setting to sync the clock with online time.
  3. Create Custom Entries to Hide Preboot and Recovery APFS Volumes with Clover Configurator With the release of High Sierra and the APFS file system, Clover users now have "extra" entries appearing in their Main Menu - Preboot and Recovery APFS volumes. While they are harmless and actually useful in certain circumstances (eg need Preboot to boot if using File Vault encryption, need Recovery to fix some file system problems), most users will likely want to hide them in day to day use. Note: This guide is tailored to those users who want to understand how to create custom APFS entries and the "nuts and bolts" of how Clover parses the file system looking for efi loader entries. If all you want to do is hide entries, the easiest way is through the GUI/Hide section of the config.plist. This won't allow you to rename custom entries, nor unhide them with the <F3> key (at least not till Clover r4247). Pre-requisites macOS High Sierra installed on APFS SSD or HDD Clover r4097+ with apfs.efi installed in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI or /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64 Clover Configurator v 4.49.0.0 or later Procedure 1. Record output of "diskutil list" and "diskutil apfs list" to determine the layout of the actual physical disk(s) and the synthesized APFS container. In my example, the High Sierra Volume is named macOS_HS and is installed in physical disk partition disk3s4. fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ diskutil list /dev/disk3 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk3 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk3s1 2: Microsoft Basic Data DATA 935.6 GB disk3s2 3: Microsoft Reserved 134.2 MB disk3s3 4: Apple_APFS Container disk4 63.6 GB disk3s4 5: Apple_KernelCoreDump 655.4 MB disk3s5 /dev/disk4 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +63.6 GB disk4 Physical Store disk3s4 1: APFS Volume macOS_HS 34.3 GB disk4s1 2: APFS Volume Preboot 20.9 MB disk4s2 3: APFS Volume Recovery 519.6 MB disk4s3 4: APFS Volume VM 20.5 KB disk4s4 2. Generate Clover Boot Log with terminal bdmesg > ~/Documents/bootlog.txt Note: for easier analysis of boot log, please remove all Custom/Hidden Entries from config.plist/GUI first (leaving only Clover auto scanning) before generating it. 3. Open bootlog.txt with a text editor and under the [ ScanLoader ] section, note the volume numbers corresponding to the Preboot, High Sierra and Recovery APFS volumes... Preboot Volume ---> 24 High Sierra Volume ---> 25 Recovery Volume ---> 26 4. Under [ ScanVolumes ] section, record the UUIDs of the above 3 Volumes In this example Vol 24 = Preboot: E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41,0x6CF46800,0x7687D88)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,050BA2A72D1D0E4D8ABDE9B99632868E Partition UUID = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 Vol UUID = 050BA2A72D1D0E4D8ABDE9B99632868E (little endian format) Vol 25 = macOS_HS: E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41,0x6CF46800,0x7687D88)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,67B6FC62811C594E819DACAE2F90240D Partition UUID = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 Vol UUID = 67B6FC62-811C-594E-819D-ACAE2F90240D (little endian format), 62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D (big endian format) Vol 26 = Recovery: E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41,0x6CF46800,0x7687D88)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,F3D73FFF25C8334DAF3C183BC35433DF Partition UUID = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 Vol UUID = F3D73FFF25C8334DAF3C183BC35433DF (little endian format) Note the partition UUIDs for all the APFS volumes are the same because they are all formed from the same physical disk partition disk3s4 = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 5. Mount the APFS Volumes to determine the "path" to boot.efi for the Preboot and Recovery Volumes. In terminal: fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ diskutil mount disk4s2 Volume Preboot on disk4s2 mounted fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ diskutil mount disk4s3 Volume Recovery on disk4s3 mounted fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ open /Volumes In Finder, the hidden folder /Volumes will open (or use "ShowAllFiles.app" attached)... Record the "path to boot.efi" by expanding the directory tree of Preboot and Recovery (hint: drag the icon of boot.efi to a terminal window for full path): So for Preboot Volume, path = /Volumes/Preboot/62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi --> record as \62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D\System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi and for Recovery Volume, path = /Volumes/Recovery/62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D/boot.efi ---> record as \62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D\boot.efi Notes Need backslashes in the path, including the leading \ The UUID in the paths to boot.efi, for both the Preboot and Recovery APFS volumes, is the same = Vol UUID of the High Sierra Volume in big endian format... 6. Open Clover Configurator, mount EFI System Partition to edit /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist 7. Click GUI section on LHS and the + sign under Custom Entries to create New Custom Entry 8. Create Preboot High Sierra Custom Entry In Volume, copy and paste Vol UUID of Preboot Volume from step 4 In Path, copy and paste path to boot.efi from step 5, including the leading \ Click Title/FullTitle and enter the display name you want eg "Preboot High Sierra" Set Injectkexts and Hidden attributes to Yes Set Entry type to OSX Leave VolumeType blank 9. Create APFS Recovery Custom Entry In Volume, copy and paste Vol UUID of Recovery APFS Volume from step 4 In Path, copy and paste path to boot.efi from step 5, including the leading \ Click Title/FullTitle and enter the display name you want eg "APFS Recovery" Set Injectkexts and Hidden attributes to Yes Set Entry type to OSXRecovery Leave VolumeType blank 10. Save config.plist and reboot the system. At the main Clover Menu, you should see something like this ... To unhide the custom APFS entries, press the F3 key Update: New "macOS Install Prebooter" Entry with Clover r4225+ Clover r4225+ has added new code to detect OS X installer data on the Preboot Volume ---> causes an extra entry at the Clover Main Menu: "Boot macOS Install Prebooter from Preboot"... If you mount your Preboot volume, you will see ... Method for hiding the new entry would be similar to hiding the Preboot Entry discussed above: In Volume, copy and paste Vol UUID of Preboot Volume from step 4 In Path, copy and paste path to boot.efi from step 5, including the leading \ (eg \UUID\com.apple.installer\boot.efi ) Click Title/FullTitle and enter the display name you want eg "High Sierra Install Prebooter" Set Injectkexts and Hidden attributes to Yes Set Entry type to OSXInstaller Leave VolumeType blank Custom Entry for Fusion Drive Installation of Sierra or High Sierra - post#22. sample_config.plist.zip apfs.efi.zip ShowAllFiles.app.zip Clover_v2.4k_r4220.zip

    AMD Ryzen High Sierra Install Guide.

    This is a basic guide to get AMD Ryzen systems working in High Sierra. You can create a USB installer following the link below or use the Kernel link to manually edit a cloned or copied disk with High Sierra already installed. 1). To create a USB installer follow the link here and then add/replace the Ryzen pre and post install folders after installer is finished and follow the guide for post instal using the kernel_ext_install_only terminal command option. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/325514-amd-high-sierra-kernel-release-and-testing/page-24?do=findComment&comment=2519914 2). To use the disk edit method download the link materials and follow these basic instructions to add kernel and system kext. First you will need a HDD or SSD with High Sierra installed. it can be copied using carbon copy cloner or Super Duper, pulled form a working Hackintosh ( intel) or a fresh install. You will need a way to connect your test disk to a working Mac or Hack like a USB to Sata or if you have a Sata connection available use it. Step 1). Open system used to edit the disk and go to top tool bar and select "Finder" scroll to "Preferences" click it. Check the Hard Disk box, this will show all drives on the desktop along with EFI partitions during the edit. Name your test disk something like Ryzen so that it doesn't get mistaken for your working system drive. Be especially careful when loading clover to the drive check the Change Install Disk option and make sure you only load it to the Ryzen drive. Step 2). Open the kernels folder from the link in downloads and drag it to the desktop. Next open the risen disk now showing on desktop. Click on the System folder, then Library folder. Now scroll down to "Extensions" folder and click on side arrow to open. Leave this folder open but move the window to one side of the screen or the other so you can access it during edits. You will be going from the Kernels folder to Ryzen disk folder so its best to set them side by side for the edits (see pic). Open the Kernels folder on desktop and open the Extensions folder. Drag the "System Kext" to the "Extensions" folder on the Ryzen drive. You will get "Authenticate" and a "replace" set of options do both. If you don't get the "replace" option then hit cancel and repeat until you have the replace option before using password. Step 3). Close the "Extensions" folder tab arrow and scroll down to Kernels folder and click on arrow tab. Next go to Kernels folder on Desktop and drag the kernel to the Ryzen drive kernel folder. You should get the "Authenticate" and "replace" prompts again. Step 4). Close the Kernels folder and scroll to PrelinkedKernels folder and hit arrow tab. Drag the prelnked kernel from the desktop kernel folder to the relinked kernels folder and replace it. Follow the usual prompts. Optional, you can remove the "immutable kernel" or leave it there. If you cannot boot after several attempts you may need to remove nit to help load the new kernel. Step 5). Now the post important part is to run Kext wizard or equivalent Kext repair tool. We need to rebuild caches and repair permissions. Make sure to select the risen disk as the target disk for this. Kext wizard allows you to select a target disk other utilities may not. Step 6). Open Clover boot loader and load onto the Ryzen disk. Be especially careful when loading clover to the drive check the Change Install Disk option and make sure you only load it to the Ryzen drive. After clover is installed open the EFi icon on desktop (disk) and then open the Clover folder. Replace the config.plist and kext folder Other. Check your Drivers64Efi folder for the apfsEFi driver in case you need it. Place it there if needed. Ryzen High sierra Kernels and Kext.zip

However.... With High Sierra I can only boot into High Sierra with 1 of the monitors turned on. Whenever I turn on the 2 monitor everything freezes within High Sierra and screen goes gray. I can still see the desktop but can't click on anything. Anybody know what I can do to get both monitors working fully in 4K? Some Success ------------- After 2 days of constant testing with no luck. I think the problem has something to do with the AMD .kexts in S/L/E. When I copied the AMD .kexts from Sierra to High Sierra I got weird colors (red & blues flipped) and the 2nd monitor will go on and not lock up the computer Even though the method of copying kexts somewhat worked... It made the graphics choppy and everything was running slow (open windows and programs). Is there a FakeID (FB Name, NVCAP, VRAM, Video Ports, Display-cfg, ig-platform-id, BootDisplay) of some sort I can use in Clover to fix this? Kext? My clover config is attached if that helps anybody! Also... The 2 pictures attached are what happens. Boots with 1 monitor on. As soon as the 2nd monitor is turned on or plugged in... The working monitor goes black and everything stops responding. config.plist.zip

    High Sierra CPU PM help

    Hello all, I just completed my first full hackintosh build (Parts listed below) and have everything fully functional with the exception of CPU power management. Has anyone had success with this in high sierra skylake build? I have followed a couple different guides I have found without success, none of which are for high sierra. High Sierra Build CPU= i7 6700k Mobo= Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI RAM= G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB 3000MHz PSU= EVGA 750W Titanium Liquid Cooling= NZXT Kraken X52 GPU= None yet, using onboard HD530 currently. SSD= Samsung 850 500GB What's working: Pretty much everything (iMessage, Audio, Display, etc..) What's not working: CPU power management is the only thing I have found to be non functioning.

I would just use config.plist from bootable usb since it already had the patch in it.
  13. Sleep, USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 work after installation. USB3.0 needs post installation steps, although some ports are recognized. Audio also needs some post installation work. This is just a guide on how to install the OS. The post installation setup follows on a post below. Hardware: Motherboard: MSI X299 SLI Plus CPU: Intel i7 7820X RAM: 4x 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 @ 3200MHz (32GB total, quad channel mode). Storage: Samsung EVO 960 M.2 250GB (for OS) Crucial MX300 1TB (for data) Network: WiFi TP-LINK Archer T9E AC1900 (PCI, supported by macOS) Bluetooth: Broadcom BCM20702 (USB, supported by macOS) Video: MSI GT 710 2GB (supported by macOS) Asus ROG Strix GTX1 070 8GB (needs NVIDIA Web Drivers) BIOS: I used version 140, the latest at the time. I am running version 150 now, with no differences. Disable "CFG Lock": Enter BIOS Load defaults (F6) Expert mode (F7) OC and then CPU Features (last item) Disable "CFG Lock". Save and reboot (F10) You have to disable CFG Lock, otherwise the kernel does not boot. The system restarts after "+++++" from Clover. In addition, I advise to disable legacy mode in the UEFI, to avoid booting in legacy mode and get confusing errors from Windows or Disk Utility. Clover installation on the USB: Install for UEFI booting only Install Clover in the ESP drivers64UEFI all selected (more on this below) all rest is off Clover drivers: When the Clover installation finishes, you have to manipulate a few efi drivers. Navigate to <USB ESP partition>/EFI/CLOVER Create a folder called drivers_disabled Move the following drivers from drivers64UEFI to drivers_disabled: OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi OsxLowMemFixDrv-64.efi You will have to add an extra driver from here: https://nickwoodhams.com/x99-hackintosh-osxaptiofixdrv-allocaterelocblock-error-update/ Download Test2-2016.efi and save it in drivers64UEFI. Without this fix, you'll have the memory allocation problems described in the link above. If you still get that problem, don't just reboot but really turn the computer off and then on between tries. I also had to install apfs.efi. Clover config.plist: I used Clover Configurator to load the default clover.plist and then: ACPI: disable everything. Boot: npci=0x2000. I also added -v. SMBIOS: iMac18,3 Any iMac18 should work (I tried with 18,1 and 18,3). I also tried with iMac14 and iMac17, and they gave me problems. For example, iMac17,1 could not initialize the graphic screen properly. Leave all the rest as default. Save. All these changes can also be done at the clover menu during boot. Note that I am not claiming this is the best configuration for a running machine. It is the simplest that allowed me to finished the installation and reboot successfully. I think it is possible to handle the efi Clover drivers installation using Clover Configurator, but I have never done that. Kexts: FakeSMC.kext. I used the one from Rehabman, but I think the official one will work as well. VoodooTSCSync.kext. This is mandatory, otherwise the system does not boot properly. It needs to be configured as follows: open VoodooTSCSync.kext/Contents/Info.plist and change the line under <key>IOCPUNumber</key> to: <integer>15</integer> This is the number of threads of your CPU minus 1. Place both kexts in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other. Video: I used the MSI GT 710 for installation and all post-installation steps. The 1070 only works with NVIDIA's Web drivers. Don't use it during installation. Check the post-installation post below to make it work. And this is it. Installation should work without a problem. Remember to use always the USB during the several installation reboots. I did not activate iCloud and my Apple account during installation. I wanted to generate a real fake machine UUID and serial number, so that I can use all the Apple services. This was done after installation, while booting from disk. What needs to be done during post-installation: Fix USB3. Fix audio. CPU ID recognition, although this might be fixed by Apple on a new iteration of the OS. Confirm that the CPU is working properly with all cores and different power states. Install NVIDI's Web Drivers for the Asus GTX 1070.
  14. Hello everyone I have a problem setting the virtual OS X to display the screen's native resolution(1600x900). When the machine first boots up, it displays the right resolution then after the logging in by a few moments the screen displays a wrong resolution(800x450 HIPDI) which is a quarter of the resolution. I have macOS High Sierra (10.13.1) on VMware Workstation 14 Pro version: 14.0.0 build-6661328. My laptop has i5-4310U CPU with HD graphics 4400 which has 128mb dedicated video memory and a 1600x900 screen. I have installed VMware tools that was created on 14 September 2017 and VMware unlocker version 2.1.1 made by DrDonk. When logging in the background isn't the blurred wallpaper and the dock isn't transparent as it should be, or at least from what I saw on the internet. Here is what I have tried up until now: 1) Changing the resolution from the system preferences. 2) Using sudo /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Tools/vmware-resolutionSet 1600 900 Which displayed this output: Requested resolution: 1600x900 Effective resolution: 1600x900 Without any result. 3) I tried setting the screen's native resolution in the Display settings of VMware, still nothing. 4) I also tried to change virtualHW.version from 14 to 10 but it also did not do anything noticeable. The only thing that changed is that the blurred wallpaper was in the background when logging in. One thing to note is that it runs correctly up until 1366x768. I think the problem may be that the OS tries to load kexts after the logging in that interferes with the VMware tools, but I am not sure or that there is a hardware limitation, but I do not know a way to test it. Does anyone know how to fix that?
  15. What works? Everything. Sleep/Wake, NVMe, Airport, Spotlight, AMD-graphics Config: ASUS Prime B250M-C µATX-board Intel Core i5 7500 (Kaby Lake) Gigabyte Radeon RX560 4GB Airport-compatible PCIe-Card for Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM943602CS) 2 NVMe drives: Samsung P961 with 1 TB and 256 GB Installed mac OS: 10.13.2 Clover: 4334 *Update 10.13.3* Added new config.plist and ssdt for AMD injection (config_amd_ssdt_10133.zip). With this config and Intel IGPU activated you'll get Metal2 (macOS GPUFamily1 v3). What did I do? Had to fake Skylake graphics or to prevent apps like iMovie or FinalCut from crashing. With Kabylake kexts loaded and IGPU as secondary graphics card, the computer will hard reset whenever the Intel GPU is utilised. Only Skylake kexts and activated IGPU will give you working Metal2 for the RX560. *Update 10.13.2* Since this update a new approach is advisable to get the RX560 up and running (works for 10.13.1 and GM as well). I've added a working SSDT and injector kext that gives you graphics and HDMI audio. Sleep works fine too if you add the DSDT I compiled. Credits go to @Toledo @Mork vom Ork and @Mieze because their work made this possible. *Update* I've added NEW config.plist and DSDT. For proper graphics power management you have to activate onboard graphics in BIOS but make PCIE the primary display. Furthermore you have to inject ig-platform-id 0x59120003 and let Clover patch GFX0 to IGPU. This is the only way to avoid crashes of iMovie, FinalCut or slowdowns after video playback. This may be the smoothest Hackintosh of my life. It is easier than Sierra install due to native support for most of the used hardware in High Sierra. Not much to do, using an up-to-date Clover version like 4184. Make sure you have apfs.efi in /Clover/drivers64UEFI/ on your EFI partition and that you delete EmuVariableUEFi.efi (downside: iMessage doesn't work without it). Somehow Rehabman's SSDT in /Clover/ACPI/patched helps avoiding crashes in iTunes. Needed kexts (on your EFI into /Clover/kexts/Other): FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet for ethernet, USBInjectAll and XHCI-200-series-injector for USB, Lilu and AppleALC for audio, Whatevergreen for AMD graphics, IntelGraphicsFixup and AMD9xxxControllerPatcher.kext. DSDT and SSDT go into EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched. config.plist.zip AMD9xxxControllerPatcher.kext.zip SSDT-HDMI-AMD-PEG0.aml.zip DSDT.aml.zip config_amd_ssdt_10133.zip
  16. I've just installed High Sierra as a new install under VMware Wkstn 12.5.7 and installed VM Tools but it's not mounting any USB HDDs that I plug in. USB flash drives are mounted OK. The USB HDD is recognised as a device (see External USB 3.0 in the attached screenshot) but Disk Utility doesn't see it. I've closed and re-opened DU a number of times. I've tried VMware Wkstn 14.0.0 and the latest VM tools but still doesn't mount. Has anyone had a similar issue or now what the problem may be? thanks Webby
  17. Hello everyone, I have an issue with the lastest clover revision that I did not had with rev. 4077 using BiosBlockIO. Clover hangs at "Scanning entries...". To be able to boot, I must install without using BiosBlockIO but Sata instead. I'd like to use BiosBlockIO as I have RocketRaid 2720SGL that is faster than my Rampage 3 Extreme ICH10 controller (the same is true with Marvell controller) and is only bootable with this option. If I revert back to rev 4077, it does not hang... Is anyone having an idea about this issue ? Thanks
  18. Hello everyone, Greetings from Brazil! I successfully installed macOS High Sierra on my computer. Everything works beautifully except Sleep. No problems on restart or shutdown. When I put the system to sleep, it restarts. Any ideas on what could be going on? I've enclosed a zip file of my Clover folder. Thank you very much for your time, kind attention and help. I really appreciate it. macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 from App Store Motherboard Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2P F3 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 8 gigabytes of RAM nVidia GeForce 9500 GT with 1gb Two Samsung 500gb SATA HDs CLOVER.zip

  20. After researching intensively and fresh installing multiple times from USB installer; I am sure that I need to use the following settings in Clover EFI V2 in Custom Install settings: 1) Install Clover in the ESP 2) Bootloader: a) Install boot0af in MBR 3) CloverEFI a) CloverEFI 64-bits SATA 4) Drivers64 a) USBKbDxe-64 - for USB Keyboard USBMouseDxe-64 - for USB Mouse c) XhciDxe-64 - for USB 3.0 driver 5) Install RC scripts on target volume My question is: Do I need to choose other .efi files in Drivers64 for installation: a) GrubEXFAT-64 GrubISO9660-64 c) GrubNTFS-64 d) GrubUDF-64 e) NvmExpressDxe-64 f) HashServiceFix-64 g) VBoxExt2-64 h) VBoxExt4-64 i) VBoxIso9600-64 Can anyone please provide brief explanation of the purpose of each driver listed above? It will be a great help and can be used as collective reference for lots of users.
  21. So my High Sierra boot partition disappeared after HS GM install which is when I discovered there is no option to install without APFS. Well, that maybe the future but I don't want it. So, I removed it. My setup is a dual boot with Win 8 (I use it about once a month, by accident). My Mac boot disk is disk0s6, 70GB, and I have my user data on disk0s8, about 300GB, not the boot disk. This division allows quicker restores and less-dangerous upgrades as the data is always safe. You may need far more than 70GB depending on your applications so think about it before you do that split. I mention that because you have to destroy your boot disk in order to revert to HFS+; having to restore all of your data every time is both tedious and a little more dangerous than having it safely housed away from what ever APPLE has decided is best for us this week. So here are the steps: 1) Make a local USB Time Machine backup of your boot disk; you can use a network version (make sure it is up-to-date!) but the restore will take HOURS. 2) Install the High Sierra GM onto a bootable USB device 3) Migrate your previous backup onto the new install (if your USB is too small, do step 4 before step 3) 4) Boot into Recovery; using DISK Utility, restore the USB install onto your HFS+ boot partition. I'm staying on HFS+ as long as possible - the world is not ready for APFS and way too much stuff is affected without good alternatives.
  22. 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..

    Hi there Here is QE_CI Patch for macOS 10.13 Beta1 and HD6770 graphics cards. Enjoy!
  24. My App Store will only download the High Sierra 13.2.01 installer and I have had some issues with that version so I need High Sierra 13.1 but I can’t get it from the App Store anymore. I was able to get a 13.1.05 installer from somewhere and I now want to verify that it is genuine. The checksums for InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg match the 10.13.1 (17B48) ones as found at: https://github.com/notpeter/apple-installer-checksums But I want to make sure that tools like createinstallmedia are also genuine. So I am looking for the SHA1 (or md5) hashes of all files in the installer app bundle. There is a great open-source osx verification project at https://sektioneins.de/en/blog/16-01-08-osx_verify.html that does exactly what I want but unfortunately High Sierra versions have not been added. It basically is a json with the hashes for all files in the bundle. Is there anyone willing to provide me with all hashes of their Install macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.05 app bundle? The tool from the link is a python script that iterates all files in the bundle, calculates the hashes, and writes it to a json file. It can be used like so: git clone https://github.com/sektioneins/osx_verify cd osx_verify ./osx_verify.py --scan <insert path to 13.1.05 installer app here> --store 'Install macOS High Sierra.13.1.05.app.json' --description 'Install macOS High Sierra.13.1.05.app' The json file will be created in the osx_verify/db folder. If someone can post their json file here, or if someone has another way of verifying all the files in the bundle I would be grateful.
  25. I just tried to update a Sierra hackintosh to High Sierra, checking the update to APFS checkmark and now after the install, I cannot get to clover and when connecting the disk to a windows pc, it just sees unallocated space. Has the High Sierra installer just wiped the whole disk? Are there issues when using APFS with an MBR disk?
