  1. So is anyone planning on getting this to Hack it as its the perfect mix of intel and amd in the perfect size https://www.pcworld.com/article/3267074/computers/intel-hades-canyon-nuc-nuc8i7hvk-review.html
  2. Hey Guys, can anyone please suggest me any good mac apps for managing files because lots of my important data have been moved to the trash unknowingly.
  3. Smbios corretto

    Salve a tutti, ho un problema all'avvio di mac os che ho già provato a risolvere con foskvs ma senza risultati.. Attualmente come smbios uso MacBookPro 12,1 (portatile in firma) mentre se uso imac 14,1 questo problema non si presenta. Dite che posso tenere iMac 14,1 magari rigenerando l'ssdt per il pm?
  4. Aspire 7741G

    Salve a tutti, Sto cercando di installare High Sierra sul mio Acer Aspire 7741G i3 ma qualcosa non va...adesso vi spiego cosa ho provato: Per prima cosa ho scaricato VMware e ho installato High Sierra fin qui tutto bene,poi ho scaricato il file di installazione dall'app store,fatto ciò ho preparato la mia usb tramite disk utilty ho selezionato "mac os x extended (journaled)" però ho notato che a differenza di altri non mi appare l'opzione "schema" però ho tentato di procedere anche senza. (Non trovando soluzioni) Apro il terminale setto tutto tramite guide che sono in giro per la rete (le stringhe sono tutte uguale) e tutto va a buon fine,poi setto clover e il gioco sembrava fatto.Una volta riavviato ho visto che altri (guide e video in giro per la rete) cambiano impostazioni nel bios ma nel mio caso non è molto modificabile quindi ho proceduto settando la usb come primo avvio.Però purtroppo al riavvio ricevo il messaggio "error loading operating system..." Cosi ho provato con UniBeat ma stessa cosa. Ho pensato che i componenti non sono adatti oppure ho sbagliato a settare qualcosa,non so. Spero che sono stato più o meno chiaro nel spiegare la situazione,Grazie in anticipo. Se vi è di aiuto ho come scheda madre: MB.PT401.001 Non so se avete bisogno di altre info,chiedete pure.
  5. I have a 2008 Core 2 Duo Penryn Unibody MacBook Pro. The latest software it officially supports is El Capitan, but there's no real technical reason it can't run Sierra, and there's a simple patch utility that will allow the install on older Macs like mine that aren't officially supported but have the right CPU architecture. Now, the problem is that my PC Express slot stops working on Sierra - I'm guessing the kexts aren't included because no real Mac that can "officially" run Sierra has these old ports. I bought this Mac used & it came with a PC Express WiFi module because the internal wireless is broken (opening up it looks like the previous owner physically tore the connector pins out of the motherboard somehow) and it's pretty vital for me that I have WiFi. I would never care about a PC Express card otherwise & I doubt that many more people have been in this exact situation. How can I do to track down what kext / services are using the PC Express card so that I can try to get them working on Sierra?
  6. Download macOS Sierra Final from Mac App Store – Direct Link : Download macOS Sierra 10.12 Final Link 2: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?mt=12 OR App store, sign in using your apple ID. (if you've already purchased )Mac OS Sierra. Download mas-cli.zip Extract it to a folder, you'll get an executable file : "mas" Drag "mas" file to terminal window, then behind it type so it says like this: <yourusername>$ /Users/@@@/Downloads/mas-cli/mas install 1127487414 Will start downloading latest Sierra (10.12.6) just like using app store. mas-cli.zip
  7. So i'm trying to install OSX 10.4 Tiger (patched for intel cpus) on a 9 year old laptop, so far i've burnt a DVD and tried to boot from it, when not starting with -v it loads and then a prohibited sign shows up, and when starting with -v it keeps saying "still waiting for root device", i've tried multipile fixes and none of them work, and im sure there isnt a problem with the computer as it also fails to boot on my core 2 duo machine, so is it possible one of you guys knows how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU: The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create Mac OS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way. This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the Mac OS installer apps, it is capable to create a Mac OS installer on a drive completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. Allows you to create easily a macOS install media without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is you want to use it on a Mac. Features: - Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the macOS install media creation process - It can work with every Mac OS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of it's resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers) - You can use any drive or partition you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size - Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a macOS install media from a bootable macOS installer or from the macOs recovery - All vanilla, the macOS install medias created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method - Open source, you will know what this program does on your computer and also you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code - Does not requires to do anything of special first, just open the program - No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive for you - Uses recent and more modern APIs and SDKs and Swift 3 language - Transparent graphics style available (use alt + s on the keyboard or View->Use transparent style) - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without needing for an update Features that I'd like to add in the future: - Advanced section, to customize your macOS install media - Installer customization: Kernelcache/prelinkedknerel and boot files replacement (a feature that can be handy while dealing with old Macs or with beta installers when you need to mod or change the boot files some times) - Install clover and configure clover - Install kexts inside the kexts folder of clover - Clover drivers customization - Use custom dsdt in clover - integrated pre-made clover config templates database from a remote and open repository - Support for other languages, at least Italian Rquirements: - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer) - A drive or a free partition of at least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media) Note that this app is under the GNU GPL v3 license so any reuse of the source code must follow the license's terms TINU 1.1 Stable release: - Download available here: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases - Source code: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU TINU 2.0 pre-release: - Download available here: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/tree/development - Source code: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/nvzss51qcieynve/TINU.zip Frequently asked questions about TINU: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs NOTE: if you have problems with your USB installer of 10.13.4 or newer version not being detected by clover you have to use the latest clover and if it still does not detectets your usb installer you have to remove the invivible file called .IAPhysicalMedia located into the root of the usb installer. This issue is caused by a changement in the apple's createinstallmedia, don't blame TINU for that, tinu does only uses the installer creation method from apple, which has been changed, causing this problem for hackintosh users, this issue should be resolved in the latest versions of clover which will no longer require that you do changements to let your usb dive to be detected, a setting to do this fix automatically in tinu is also comeing in a new pre-release of TINU 2 I leave also some screenshots as well
  9. My K95 RGB working great on both Sierra and High Sierra. I'm testing the software for Corsair If anyone wants to be a tester just pm me, I'll flick you the contact.
  10. Hi guys, i and my friends are trying to get mac os high sierra to work, the first good news is that high sierra can be installed on hfs+, so for now we do not need drivers for the new file system in clover (but it will be helpful if clover developers add support for them), then, we are trying to get it to boot, at first attempt there is always the problem of mac kexts non injecting, so for now we need some fix in clover, we are trying to get the prelinked kernel with fake smc injected, form a mac to get to boot the system, we could do that so fast thanks to the fact that i own a developer account (if you are asking, i use it to distribute apps, not just for beta software), so we will keep you updated EDIT: Thanks to the new clover releases you do not need special stuff to get it to work, you just need the apps.efi driver in the clover's drivers 64 uefi folder to get it to boot on APFS (don't use apfs on a standard hard disk, use it only on ssd), for web drivers on the dp 3 some the web driver from 10.12.6 modified with nvidia driver updater seems to work, and seems to be a native kabylake support too
  11. Hello guys, I just got a Power Mac G5 complete desktop and I would love to tear it down and install all new hardware and make the best hackintosh I could possibly create. I removed all the components and decided to keep the drive bay, bluetooth and wifi wires (maybe I'll toss them) and screws (why not!?) The only thing this case is missing is the side panel, its gone and was gone from when I found it, as well as the G5 heat sink cover (damnit!) Does anyone know where I could get a replacement cover or would I have to design and fabricate a cover from scratch? Any help is appreciated of course and I had no idea where to post this question considering all the main forums didn't quiet fit so I apologize in advanced.
  12. Lenovo Thinkpad L420 macOS Sierra Guide Thanks to the good old mighty Clover Bootloader, we have so much better support for laptops and different alternative hardware. I have made a few HackBook Pros but without a shadow of a doubt this Lenovo L420 is almost a perfect Apple computer. Even better in some aspects if you ask me about it. Lenovo theme on Clover in my L420 I will be quoting a good fellow of the community, tluck , who made an awesome guide for his Lenovo T420, and he also helped me achieve better functionality. Regards to you my friend. I have already written a guide for installing and perfecting Mac OS X El Capitan on this PC, but I wanted to see how good Sierra could run, and OH BOY it is running like a charm. Here are the specs of the machine. In my case I added 8GB of RAM. I understand this is not a highly popular laptop outside corporations, I don’t even know if it was ever sold to the general public, so I guess this post will help me know that hahah anyway a friend of mine gave me two of them, one with i5 another with i3. This tutorial applies to any of those models. It should also apply to older versions of Mac OS X all the way until Snow Leopard (little modifications required as well as appropriate kexts) What is working WiFi , Bluetooth, Airdrop (Wifi replaced with Atheros AR9285) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated Intel HD3000 graphics Trackpad with 1 finger , 2 finger and 3 finger gestures keyboard as well as function keys (brightness, volume) Battery percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Sound working on ALC269 mobile DVD Drive DisplayPort audio and video VGA out USB 3.0 ExpressCard (Renesas) iMessage and Facetime Recovery Partition What is not working You tell me 1. Creating the install media The best way to install macOS to our Hackintosh is definitely to create a USB with the latest version of macOS Sierra (10.12.5 as of writing this guide) and to use the createinstallmedia method. For that you will need either a Macintosh computer, an existing Hackintosh or a Virtual Machine running OS X 10.6 or above. This way you will end up with a clean vanilla install , and with a recovery partition capable of booting and capable of using FindMyMac / FindMyiPhone I won’t go into too much details about this since this is one of the first things you should know when attempting to Hackintosh. This procedure is for a new macOS installation using a USB Installer. Download macOS from the App Store - it is freely available One can build a macOS USB installer with the standard macOS installer app downloaded from the "App Store". Download and extract the zip file from this post to build a Clover-based USB installer. This same bundle will be installed later on HD. Install macOS to a GPT formatted disk using the standard Install macOS.app downloaded from the Apple Store. Create a macOS USB installer Partition an 8GB (or larger) USB formatted with GUID Partition Table (GPT) - use the Partition Options... menu to change from MBR to GPT - Name the partition USB - the install process will rename it, but it matches the script below. - Use format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (formerly OS X Extended) Note: if you have a larger USB (say 16GB) you can split into 2 8GB partitions, so you can have 10.12 and 10.11 installers on the same USB key Run this command to copy the bits to the USB key: Note: if using an older version of macOS, replace with the corresponding app name. sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 2. Install bootloader (Clover) to install media You should select your USB in the Clover installer and then hit “Customize” Select the next options: Install Clover in the ESP Install boot0ss in MBR Clover EFI 64bits SATA CSMVideoDxe-64 EmuVariableUEFI-64 OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 Fat64 3. Configuring the bootloader After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi. Because this PC doesn’t have any UEFI you should also install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi to the drivers64 folder. Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folderIn the above mentioned “other” folder. Place the kexts that I will quote next (you can download the ones attached to the post, but I always recommend the latest versions) : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext CodecCommander.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) GenericUSBXHCI.kext (only if you use an USB3.0 ExpressCard) RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext (tluck's version) L420 kextpack.zip Notes on VoodooPS2 (tluck) VoodooPS2Controller.kext (v1.8.25f) - New custom T420 version of RehabMans's PS2 Keyboad/TouchPad/TrackPoint - This version has extra T420 definitions in the Info.plist files. Tweaks to help with TrackPoint on startup Jakibaki's cut/paste fix for middle button + scrolling fix. if MiddeMouseScroll is set to true scrolling TrackPoint works. Sierra PrefPane integration and other fixes (smoothness and caps-lock) by usr-sse2 (see this post on GitHub) Modified Info.plist(s) to add LENOVO T420 override settings. ​TrackPad pressure FingerZ value set to 47 - up from default of 30 - change to suite your touch in VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2TrackPad.kext/Contents/Info.plist Various Default overrides such as MouseMultiplier X and Y for TrackPoint. Note: VoodooPS2Controller keyboard mappings have 3 or 4 finger swipe left/right to back/forward configured for Safari browser vs space swipe Optional Key Map: This map works in El Capitan. Since the NX keys are in a state of flux for Sierra - it is disabled by default now. If you would want to use this new map, edit the Info.plist file and rename the T420 key map entry. The F1-F15 key mappings are VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.key.plist: F1 - LCD Brightness Down F2 - LCD Brightness Up F3 - Mission Control App Selector F4 - Launchpad F5 - F6 - F7 - Mirror Displays F8 - Disable/Enable TouchPad F9 - F10 - Mute Volume F11 - Volume Down F12 - Volume Up PrtSc - Scan Previous Track ScrLck - iTunes Play/Pause Pause - Scan Next Track Insert - Eject After all the kexts are in the correct folder you should tweak your config.plist as follows, I recommend using a proper plist editor , the best is Xcode. config.plist.zip Lenovo mostly whitelist the Wifi cards on their laptops (and some desktops) so you will have to use a custom BIOS for this. There is one here luckily. If you need me to explain how to flash it then you shouldn’t really be Hackintoshing in the first place. After you have flashed the BIOS make sure you set the SATA controller to AHCI. You should be able to boot from the Clover USB and install Mac OS X Remember to use a GUID partition scheme for the drive you will use. Recovery partition should be generated automatically by the OS X installer. 4. Hopefully you boot and get to install macOS well. Boot Clover from USB Installer and select Install macOS Install the OS on your GPT disk on the macOS partition. Make sure the drive is formatted using: Scheme: GUID Partition Map (GPT) Partition Name: macOS Format: macOS Extended (Journaled) Dual BOOT tip: If you plan to dual boot Windows from the same HD - DO NOT make the 2nd partition NTFS or ExFAT with the Disk Utility app. Make them both "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" Size the 2 partitions appropriately - but later you will delete/reformat the 2nd partition for Windows. Click through GUI Install menus and wait for the installation to fully complete - on a spinning disk takes about 30-45 minutes. Follow these Notes and Tips: When the installer screens shows: "To pair a Bluetooth keyboard, turn it on and wait for your computer to connect to it.” Hit the Space Bar to get past this step. When installer seems to hang at: "About a second remaining” Don’t Panic, this "second" may take about 10 minutes or more to finish. Just wait for the installer to reboot the computer and continue the installation. The whole install process takes about 1 hour to complete. On the first boot from the HD when asked: "How Do You Connect?” Select: “My computer does not connect to the Internet” You can set up the network later after installation of the NIC driver kext. Your Intel WiFi will not work. Period. 5. Next you have to install the boot loader to the HDD You should select your USB in the Clover installer and then hit “Customize” Select the next options: Install Clover in the ESP Install boot0ss in MBR Clover EFI 64bits SATA CSMVideoDxe-64 EmuVariableUEFI-64 OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 Fat64 Install all RC scripts to target partition After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Again we install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi. Because this PC doesn’t have any UEFI you should also install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi to the drivers64 folder. Also copy your ACPI files and config.plist at the right places. 6. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch Delete all files except DSDT, SSDT-0 and SSDT-1 in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin You should decompile the DSDT , SSDT-0 and SSDT-1 using the following commands (make sure you create a .txt document containing the following external references and place it in the same place where the ACPI files are) External(MDBG, MethodObj, 1)External(_GPE.MMTB, MethodObj, 0)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECWT, MethodObj, 2)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECRD, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECMD, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGPO, MethodObj, 2)External(_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD02._BCM, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.SAT0.SDSM, MethodObj, 4)External(_GPE.VHOV, MethodObj, 3)External(_SB.PCI0.XHC.RHUB.TPLD, MethodObj, 2) Then do: cd /path/to/your/filesiasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors.The only error you will find will be in one of the SSDTs and it can be fixed using the Remove _PSS placeholders patch to fix that SSDT that only contains info about the CPU and is full of “Package (0x06)” When your files are nice and clean and in .dsl format you can happily apply the following patches to DSDT Use the patch “Rename GFX0 to IGPU” Use the patch “Rename B0D3 to HDAU” Use the patch "DTGP" (easy to find with our buddy Google) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix" Use the patch "Fix Mutex with non-zero SyncLevel" Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “6 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x6D" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" Use the patch "L420 battery patch" For Brightness keys (Q14 and Q15 in DSDT) In Method _Q14 add at the end: Notify (PS2K, 0x0206)Notify (PS2K, 0x0286) In Method _Q15 add at the end: Notify (PS2K, 0x0205)Notify (PS2K, 0x0285) If you are lost with ACPI here is how you should place the code: Little bonus, since the ThinkVantage key does absolutely nothing, I patched the DSDT so that when you hit that key, the fans will remain at 100% speed all the time. Hit it again and they go back to auto mode Cool Right? Replace your _Q19 method with this (credits to tluck) Method (_Q19, 0, NotSerialized) // _Qxx: EC Query { Name (FANS, One) Store (HFSP, FANS) XOr (FANS, 0x80, Local0) If (Local0) { Store (0x80, HFSP) } Else { Store (0x07, HFSP) } } After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and compile your tables cd /path/to/patched/tablesiasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load itFinally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh Note: - If you want working brightness in Sierra make sure to download my ACPI files pack and use the provided SSDT-PNLF - Also if you use Atheros AR9285 like me you can use the attached SSDT-2 and see if it works, otherwise provide here your DSDT 7. After you have your DSDT, SSDT-0, SSDT-1 and SSDT (the one generated by the script) , along with SSDT-PNLF and SSDT-2 if you need them, place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" Overall I would say this laptop is quite perfect for a Hackintosh , I use it for a few months and I love it, hope you do too. This Hack is functioning almost 100% in Mac OS X and certainly it performs so much better than in Windows Enjoy our fully functional Hack General Notes and Random Fixes The stock Intel WiFi will not work. The common approach is use a modded BIOS and replace the WiFi with a Broadcom or Atheros chip (I went for AR9285). Enable (turn on) Bluetooth so the green light is showing on the LCD bezel (do from Windows or Ubuntu). Also make sure the side switch is set to green too! When using external headphones or speakers, may need to plug and unplug 1 or 2 times for recognition. iMessage/Facetime may not register without overriding the Clover generated values with real ROM and MLB values from a real Apple Mac. Search thread for ROM to get more info. ​Clover can possibly generate proper values and inject using RtVariables - use mac address -- see wiki for details. Hibernation - Use OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi instead of OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi UEFI driver for restart from hibernation. Suggested settings if you don't want or use hibernation: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 rm /var/vm/sleepimage if you want hibernation, then set hibernate mode to 7 (mode 7 is like mode 3 but without encryption) - may need to manually edit this value into the plist file now. sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 7 Note: Booting up from the hibernated image may have jumbled or blank LCD until you do a sleep/wake cycle to reset the LCD. Add boot option darkwake=0 if you would like to disable power nap and have the lid wake the gfx instead of hitting extra key. TrackPoint may not be responsive on startup (random occurance) - a sleep/wake cycle should revive it. Here are my patched tables if you need them L420 patched ACPI Sierra.zip
  13. I use Mac for my works, I received a lot of winmail.dat files from the senders who are using Microsoft Outlook, but I don’t know how to extract and save it, the contents is very important for me. I need them to do my works. This question has been bothering me for a long time, I am eager to solve. Does anyone know what method can I fix?
  14. ¡Hello guys! I was at google looking for news about hackintoshing, and i found in eBay one profile who is selling computers that supposedly works "native" with all OS. Windows,Mac,Linux..... Is this true? its a fake? How can it be done? im really curious about it jaja. here is one of their "supposedly products": http://www.ebay.com/itm/i7-6700K-4-3GHZ-OC-32GB-2400MHZ-250-SSD-4GB-GTX970-Hackintosh-macOS-Sierra/262812671304 what do you think guys?
  15. Hi, (I known I have posted about an Acer Laptop before, but I got a new one recently) I have so far managed to create a bootable USB with macOS Sierra on and I can't get to the install screen. I can boot to the flash drive and see the clover screen but then it won't boot to an install screen. It shows the Apple Logo and then the progress bar shows up and does nothing. (It basically stalls I think) My Laptop specs are. (Acer Aspire F15 (F5-573G)) Intel Core i7-6500u Nvidia GTX 950M Intel HD Graphics 520 8GB DDR4 Memory 120GB SSD I don't own a mac so I had to create the USB using a .raw file I downloaded which must work because it worked on the tutorial and I followed every step. I have pretty good knowledge of computers but no where near an expert. But if you need any more information, you will need to give me a clue on how to answer your question. Please don't comment if this is stupid or something, I'm only hear to get an answer and to get to the installation screen to install macOS Sierra. Thanks, Daniel
  16. Hi, im leaving Mavericks in my Hackintosh to Sierra. I have toons of plugins and all my music apps stable and working. I want to get this SSD cloned to my other HD. I have tried Carboon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper! But with both programs isn't botable and both copies with the same problem. After of cloning i tried to start the bootloader (I have chimera in this Mavericks) Then tried to start. No Chimera, so i reintalled. Then again i tried to start. At this time, chimera boot and i can select this new clone HD. In normal mode, the Apple logo appear and then crash with this reports: (Image 1 Attached) In verboose mode, the same with this report: (Image 2 Attached) What can i do to get it botable ? Thanks guys!!
  17. With the purpose of running the beloved Apple Mac OS X on our Intel ASUS laptop I am writing this guide to share my experience and knowledge about this Hackintosh. This tutorial applies to running versions between 10.9 and 10.11.6, focusing specially in El Capitan. This method applies also for Sierra but at the moment my WiFi Card doesn't work well with 10.12 so I chose to remain in a stable Mac OS X I have 99% functionality: What Works : WiFi, Bluetooth, Airdrop, HandOff, FindMyMac (WiFi card has to be replaced, I put a BCM94352HMB) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated HD4400 graphics Trackpad with 1finger, 2finger, 3finger and 4finger gestures Keyboard (Perfect with Volume, Brightness, Play/Pause, Numpad working) Battery Percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI audio DVD Drive HDMI audio and video VGA out iMessage and FaceTime Recovery Partition What is not working Internal SD Card Reader When you install Clover Bootloader to your USB media or HDD you should select the following options: - Install for UEFI booting only - Install Clover in the ESP - Drivers64UEFI (Fat-64, OSxAptioFix2Drv) After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folder In the above mentioned “other” folder place the kexts that I will quote next, please note that the kexts marked in red are the absolute necessary ones for booting Mac OS X installer , the rest should only be installed afterwards, after having Mac OS X installed to your hard drive and directly to /System/Library/Extensions : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext BrcmPatchRAM (Mavericks) or BrcmPatchRAM2 (Yosemite or later) CodecCommander.kext DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext (Only for El Capitan) FakePCIID_IntelHDMIaudio.kext FakePCIID_BroadcomWiFI.kext (makes my BCM94352HMB work) FakePCIID_IntelHDGraphics.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) IntelBacklight.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext (Only for El Capitan) After all the kexts necessary are in the correct folder, proceed to mimic my config.plist Note that the Kext patches included only work for El Capitan. If you want older version support, post here and I can help. I recommend using Clover Configurator App config.plist.zip For your SMBIOS choose MacbookPro11,2 and shake those serial numbers to really get a genuine one. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin in your USB you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch I recommend patching these tables before installing Mac OS X in order to have a better user experience and better functionality as well as a cleaner and smoother install. Your computer may not even reach the installer since we have no way of disabling our discrete NVIDIA Geforce 820m without getting our hands dirty in DSDT patches. Delete all files that don’t start with DSDT or SSDT- If you have an SSDT with an x just delete it because it is dynamically loaded and so does not need our attention. Place the files in our interest in a folder and: cd /path/to/a/folder iasl -da -dl *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors. In the latest BIOS we have the following errors: DSDT- We will find 4 errors The parse op Zero errors can be fixed by deleting all the “Zero” you find in the conflicting place The remaining two errors are fixed by applying the ADBG fix from RehabMan repo SSDT-1- We find many errors and all can be fixed by applying the patch “Remove _PSS placeholders” SSDT-12- We find an error related to a specific sector of a cryptic DOS device, we can safely delete these following lines from the SSDT Now that all our ACPI tables are nice and clean we can proceed to patching First of all, open all the tables at the same time and hit Command + F to bring up the Find Replace dialog box and Find:GFX0 and Replace it with: IGPU Find:B0D3 and Replace it with HDAU Do this in all the tables, so the renames are the same in all your tables When that is done, apply the following patches to the DSDT: Use the patch "DTGP" (you can easily find it with our friend Google ) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix Windows 8” Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “7-8 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x0D" Use the patch "Igpu Brightness Fix" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" When you have applied the Audio Layout Patch just Find: layout and it should show the only result, then make that part look like mine, so that you can use AppleALC for native on the fly audio If you want HDMI audio you should open SSDT-10 and find layout again and make it look like the one you just edited in DSDT, we do this because we want layout-id 29 instead of layout-id 3 For battery percentage you should use the ASUS N55SL/Vivobook patch Finally when you did all that you should follow RehabMan’s tutorial for Disabling Discrete Graphics Cards, on a web which I am not allowed to mention. This will give you much more battery life and a lot less heat. You should read it properly and you will notice there is close to no difference between his example and our laptop so it will be easier than it looks like. Make sure you also use the patch he posts to fix shutdown and sleep when our NVIDIA is disabled. After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and cd /path/to/where/your/patched/tables/are Then delete all the original aml files And then iasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load it Place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" as I did in the attached config.plist. Before installing Mac OS X make sure in your BIOS you have legacy mode disabled and you have secure boot and fast boot also disabled, so that Clover works well. Also make sure the controller is set to AHCI mode. Remember to use a GUID partition table on your Hard Drive and if you plan to dual boot just create two Mac OS Extended Journaled partitions, don't create any Fat partition using Disk Utility cause that will leave you unable to install Windows in UEFI mode. Post-Install Finally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh (this can only be done when you have installed Mac OS X) https://github.com/P...ha/ssdtPRGen.sh Add it to the Sorted Order and you are done Make sure to set the hibernate mode to either 0 or 2 . ​You can copy the colour profiles from ASUS Splendid Utility and use them in Mac OS X, but for my eyes, I prefer the default LCD one This is the first fully functional Hackintosh I ever accomplished and it took me a few months of learning… I am using Mac OS X for about two or more years in this Hack and I am still in love like the very first boot hihihi This is almost the perfect HackBook and has worked since Mountain Lion until now Hope you enjoyed!
  18. Insane CPU usage

    I just noticed when exporting file this crazy thing pops up in Activity Monitor. Can this be safely ignored? Hahahahha The temp seems ok in this ASUS X550LDV but those numbers, man those numbers Regards, and good Hack
  19. Help! ASUS K501UX

    Hey guys, I am fairly new to the scene and recently successfuly installed El Capitan 10.11 on the Asus K501UX The specs are: Core i7-6500u, 8GB RAM, GTX 950M (DISABLED), HD520 Everything seems to be in good working order thanks to Ludwig Bartholomew for guiding me and helping me through the process. But, I keep recieving a Kernel Panic everytime I have the VoodooI2C kext installed for the trackpad to function. If I remove it everything works fine except for the trackpad which is the issue. Note: I also removed all of the LPSS kext files from the S/L/E to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Then placed my old screen (kept from an "old" TV going to trash) over the original support with adapter i made placed the inverter, cut and solder the HDMI cable that would go from mainboard and screen inside the chromed foot screwed all that soldering the power cable to PSU (on 12v out) ans booted the newly created iMhack 24"
  21. Hello fellow Hackintoshers I come to present my full guide on how to install Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan on any Lenovo Thinkpad L420. I understand this is not a highly popular laptop outside corporations, I don’t even know if it was ever sold to the general public, so I guess this post will help me know that hahah anyway a friend of mine gave me two of them, one with i5 another with i3. This tutorial applies to any of those models. It should also apply to older versions of Mac OS X all the way until Snow Leopard (little modifications required as well as appropriate kexts) First, screenshot proof of beautiful functionality What is working WiFi , Bluetooth, Airdrop (Wifi replaced with Atheros AR9285) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated Intel HD3000 graphics Trackpad with 1 finger , 2 finger and 3 finger gestures keyboard as well as function keys (brightness, volume) Battery percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Sound working on ALC269 mobile DVD Drive DisplayPort audio and video VGA out USB 3.0 ExpressCard (Renesas) iMessage and Facetime Recovery Partition What is not working You tell me Install bootloader (Clover) to El Capitan USB install media You should select your USB in the Clover installer and then hit “Customize” Select the next options: Install Clover in the ESP Install boot0ss in MBR Clover EFI 64bits SATA CSMVideoDxe-64 EmuVariableUEFI-64 OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 Fat64 Configuring the bootloader After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efiOpen the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folderIn the above mentioned “other” folder place the kexts that I will quote next (you can download the ones attached to the post, but I always recommend the latest versions) : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext BroadcomBluetooth.kext CodecCommander.kext DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) GenericUSBXHCI.kext (only if you use an USB3.0 ExpressCard) IntelBacklight.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext toledaARPT.kext (if you use Atheros AR9285) USBInjectAll.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext ( tluck's version ) kextpack Lenovo L420 .zip After all the kexts are in the correct folder you should tweak your config.plist as follows, I recommend using Clover Configurator Lenovo mostly whitelist the Wifi cards on their laptops (and some desktops) so you will have to use a custom BIOS for this. There is one here luckily. https://app.box.com/s/j4fffsagyzlohxmnvq6t If you need me to explain how to flash it then you shouldn’t really be Hackintoshing in the first place. After you have flashed the BIOS make sure you set the SATA controller to AHCI. You should be able to boot from the Clover USB and install Mac OS X Remember to use a GUID partition scheme for the drive you will use. Recovery partition should be generated automatically by the OS X installer. Enjoy your new HackBook PS: DSDT and SSDT patches tutorial for this specific laptop are on their way
  22. Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum, I'm really searching for some help with my "project" and hope some of you can help me out with this one! It's all coming down to a not starting "Finder" The full story, I bought a Mac Pro 1.1 (2006) a few day's ago. All stock, dual Intel Xeon 3Ghz, 5GB Ram and the stock video card (256MB). (Lion freshley installed) I wanted to upgrade to OSX El Capitain, and after a lot of research and a lot... yes a lot of trouble in making it all work I finally got it. I've thrown in a Geforce GTX 760 2GB Jetstream... couldn't wait to get cables for powering it, so I frankensteind it all with a second PSU. Installed Lion on a Samsung 850 EVO, and then followd a tutorial on how to install el capitain using Piker's boot. After 12 hours non stop messin around it worked, only after some time the mac froze and rebooted. I noticed that maby Google Chrome caused this to happen, and when using Safari it would work without any problem. I even can play 4K flawless. But still after some time it would crash, I monitored the CPU and Ram Usage, but there wasn't anything crazy happening at those things. .. didn't really got the time to instal other apps. Then I found out Finder wasn't responding. It kept on crashing. I tried a lot of things... deleting the plist files, resetting PRAM, VRAM, Savebooting, deleting cache, Disk repair (Disk Aid)... nothing worked. Is this maby a problem with the bootloader (Pike)? I hope someone can help me out! Thanks in advance, Greetings from Holland
  23. MacOS Sierra su HP 250 G5 W4N06EA

    Salve a tutti ragazzi, vorrei installare Sierra sul mio nuovo notebook. Avete qualche guida da consigliarmi? i3-5005U (Broadwell) 4GB Ram DDR 3 Intel HD Graphics 5500
  24. Hi, I have so far managed to create a bootable USB with macOS Sierra on and I can't get to the install screen. I can boot to the flash drive and see the clover screen but then it won't boot to an install screen. My Laptop specs are. (Acer Aspire E14 (E5-411-C9KS)) Intel Celeron N2840 (Which apparently has an equivalent to HD Graphics 4000?) 4GB DDR3 L Memory. And the rest isn't important because it has integrated graphics but it is only classed as "Intel HD Graphics" and nothing else. I don't own a mac so I had to create the USB using a .raw file I downloaded which must work because it worked on the tutorial and I followed every step. I have pretty good knowledge of computers but no where near an expert. But if you need any more information, you will need to give me a clue on how to answer your question. Please don't comment if this is stupid or something, I'm only hear to get an answer and to get to the installation screen to install macOS Sierra. Thanks, Daniel
  25. More info at: http://www.thegroovykosak.blogspot.pt Here is a video I made demonstrating the procedure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04SLD2Kft60 Download your distro of choice, in my case Ubuntu Gnome edition Once that is done, use the command that follows to convert the iso to img: 
hdiutil convert -format UDRW ~/path/to/target.iso -o ~/path/to/ubuntu.img 
Note: OS X tends to put the .dmg ending on the output file automatically, delete the ".dmg" ending. Run diskutil list to get the current list of devices Insert your flash media Run diskutil list again and determine the device node assigned to your flash media
(e.g. /dev/disk2) Run
 diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskN 
(replace N with the disk number from the last command; in the previous example, Nwould be 2) Execute the following command while replacing /path/to/downloaded.img with the path where the image file is located; for example, ./ubuntu.img or ./ubuntu.dmg). sudo dd if=/path/to/downloaded.img of=/dev/rdiskN bs=1m Using /dev/rdisk instead of /dev/disk may be faster. Run diskutil eject /dev/diskN and remove your flash media when the command completes Restart your Mac and press Alt while the Mac is restarting to choose the USB-Stick or restart your PC and choose the USb from BIOS. This USB should work for any computer. Note: (If you see the error dd: Invalid number '1m', you are using GNU dd. Use the same command but replace bs=1m with bs=1M. If you see the error dd:/devdiskN: Resource busy, make sure the disk is not in use. Start the Disk Utility.app and unmount (don't eject) the drive. ) Thanks for watching
