  1. Updated Ralink/Mediatek drivers for USB dongles released at 29/11/2013. MAVERICKS AND YOSEMITE COMPATIBLE Drivers downloaded from http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/usb-rt2870rt2770rt3x7xrt537xrt5572/ I made a zip file with oficial drivers and a preference pane from dlink that replace the oficial ralink wireless utility. This solve the problematic Ralink Wireless Utility that simply does not work on yosemite and the package doesn´t install the maverick kext in yosemite. ZIP CONTENTS DLINK PREFERENCE PANE INSTALATION Copy preference pane to \System\Library\PreferencePanes\ Copy kext for your MacOS version (use Maverick for Yosemite) to folder \System\Library\Extensions\ Repair permissions Rebuild kext cache Reboot.

  2. I was successful in emulating mavericks on VMware but would like to make use of the systems full hardware capabilities. Goal would be to run Xcode, Swift and related apps w/o issues with decent performance on Mavericks or Yosemite. I have the i3 4030u which should not be an issue, but do worry about a dell motherboard. (or whatever it is) Here is my CPU-Z info: http://valid.x86.fr/j1a9nz (Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1, Model# 7347) Mothrboard: Model Dell Type2 - Board Product Name1 BIOS Dell Inc. - A03 - 10/15/2014 CPU Socket Socket 1168 BGA North Bridge Intel Haswell-ULT rev 0B South Bridge Intel ID9C43 rev 04
  3. Could you please help me enable the VGA port on the GT710 in 10.9.5 13F34 ? It is currently booting fine through its HDMI port, web driver 334.0103f01 and config.plist arguments checked: Verbose (-v), npci=0x2000, dart=0, nvda_drv=1 The nvidia GT710 works fine through its VGA port and web drivers on a friend's Mac Pro 3,1 I must soon return this borrowed HDMI monitor, mine only has a VGA port so I'd appreciate your input.
  4. Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga). Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?
  5. Have managed to boot into Finder without a usb but cannot see the outside world. Could you please help me to enable Marvell 80E8056 ethernet access on 10.9.5 13F34 ?
  6. Trying to install Mavericks on an Asus H170M-E D3 motherboard, Skylake I3-6100 cpu, Intel 530 graphics. Last message I see is "root device uud is" and a series of "+++" but then it just stops. Have prepared usb with createinstallmedia, added Clover 4413 and changed a few settings with Configurator. Any help is welcome.
  7. Note: This computer works with every version of OS X since (virtually) Snow Leopard, to High Sierra (and newer I presume, except if Apple makes drastic changes). Depending on your hardware configuration, you may need to change some settings and experiment more. My configuration: CPU: Intel Core i5 3570 3.4GHz RAM: 8GB DDR3 GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GT210 1GB (connected via HDMI) What works, what doesn't? Works: Native power management with TB, USB 3.0*, Ethernet*, parallel ports (natively)... Doesn't work: Intel HD2500. If you have i7 or another CPU with HD4000, you may get it to work. The options in BIOS are there, it's just I hadn't had any luck with the HD2500 and couldn't enable it (tried various ways). Note: I don't know if native audio works, as I own an USB audio interface and I use it without any problems. I presume you'll be able to get audio with AppleHDA patches or in last resort VoodooHDA. Let me just say that this is a relatively compatible computer. The motherboard is very good, with the exception of the PSU - you are limited to set of GPUs. Before I had the GT210, I had GTX1050 which worked wonderfully with High Sierra (latest version). But for my purposes, I needed Mavericks and hence the GPU downgrade. BIOS settings SATA mode to AHCI Disable VT-d Disable integrated GPU (if you have HD2500) Enable Execute Disable Bit Installation Guide Create an USB with DiskMakerX Install Clover on it (no special settings needed) Insert FakeSMC.kext into kexts/Other folder When booting, select all the CPU patches (including XCPM) If you have NVIDIA GT210, you'll need to disable the integrated GPU and only select 'Inject NVIDIA' in Graphics settings in Clover Viola Additional Kexts Ethernet - AppleIntelE1000e.kext USB 3.0 - GenericUSBXHCI.kext Some more screenshots:
  8. How to Install MacOSX 10.9 Mavericks on a MSI GS70 Laptop This guide will show you how to get a basic functioning install of 10.9 Mavericks on a GS70 - a thin, fast, gaming laptop by MSI (details here, hw specs below). Not all hardware is functioning, please check list below, and share if you find ways to get things working. Please keep posts focused on problems, helpful hints, and solutions. FYI, my machine is triple booting Linux Mint, Windows 8, and MacOSX 10.9. I mostly use MacOS to fix my friends' computers and for iOS development, not everyday use. I haven't taken the time to get sleep, mic input, etc. working properly. Hopefully some folks can use this as a base to get more things functional. Big thank you to RehabMan, rockinron_1, EMlyDinEsH, and the makers of Clover, Kext Wizard, DSDT Editor, and all the other great, necessary tools. Working Basic Install Trackpad (multi-touch) Keyboard (including some function keys and glowy keyboard) Sound (output speakers/headphones) USB Bluetooth Shutdown Integrated Intel Graphics Not Working Yet Internal wireless Ethernet Sound input Sleep NVidia accelerated graphics with optimus Needed Tools: A working MacOS installation Mavericks install dmg The latest Clover (version 2330 at time of writing): http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/files/Installer/ Kext Wizard: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/253395-kext-wizard-easy-to-use-kext-installer-and-more/ Clover Configurator: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/49-clover-configuratorconverter/ FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from Vanilla Guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-install-guide/ mach_kernel from RehabMan:https://www.google.fr/#q=mach_kernel+from+RehabMan Patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze: https://www.google.fr/search?q=Patched+AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext+from+Mieze&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:fr:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=6e61UrigAoyG8gOex4DAAQ Elan Touchpad drivers, ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext from EMlyDinEsH:http://http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ An 8gb+ USB key A usb mouse and keyboard (possibly optional...) VoodooHDA kext (not sure if this is necessary) Step 1: Create the USB Installer (taken mostly from Vanilla Install guide) In a previous MacOSX install, use DiskUtility to Partition a USB disk with 1 HFS+ Partition, make sure GUID partion map is selected in the options. Mount your Mavericks dmg image Go to the mounted image, right click on "Mavericks.app" and choose "Show Contents" Go to "Contents/Shared Support" and mount InstallESD.dmg Mount BaseSystem.dmg by typing the following in terminal: open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg In DiskUtility, go to the "OS X Base System", Restore it to your USB disk. Navigate to /System/Installation on your USB drive. Delete the “Packages” link, then copy the Packages folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. Copy the following kext's to /System/Library/Extensions on your USB stick. FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext files from the Vanilla Guide The patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze (optional, untested) You can try copying the Elan Touchpad drivers as well, read Step 5 "Touchpad and Keyboard" section below and delete approriate kexts, this could save you from needing a USB keyboard/mouse during installation Install Clover to the usb drive, customize the install with the following options: Bootloader->Install boot0af in MBR CloverEFI->64-bits SATA Themes->Choose one (Black_Green_Moody is nice) Drivers64->XhciDxe-64 Drivers64UEFI->OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Copy the mach_kernel file from RehabMan to the root of the USB drive Step 2: Installing OS X Boot into the installer, I use reFind bootloader and the USB disk just shows up when it's plugged in, you should be able to select the boot order in your bios to boot from the USB key if you don't have another bootloader installed Select "Options". Do the following: under the DSDTfixmask menu, disable "fix display" under the Graphics menu, select "Inject EDID" (inject Intel should already be selected) Now boot into the installer (return to the menu with all the OS icons and select the USB key. It'll read "Boot Mac OSX HFS+" or something) If you did not install the Elan kexts, you will have to use a USB keyboard and mouse for the install. Install OS X (use a HFS+ partition on a drive partitioned with a GUID partition map, MacOSX is a good name for the partition) Boot back into the installer like you just did early (yes select all those options) Select "Utilities" from the top and then Terminal You need to copy all those kext's you installed on the USB drive to your new installation partition. Type in the following lines, replacing MacOSX with the actual name of the partition you installed to (hint: after entering the first one, press the up arrow to save yourself some typing): cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ Likewise, copy the patched mach_kernel from your USB drive to the install, replacing the original- cp –R /mach_kernel /Volumes/MacOSX/ Now type "reboot" and hit enter Step 3: Intial Reboot Reboot again into the installer, choosing the same options as before BUT boot from the hard-drive, not the USB drive As MacOSX 10.9 pops up, do a little dance of joy. Install Clover onto your hard-drive, choosing the same options as before. Install Clover Configurator and run it. Do the following: Go to File->Open on the top bar and choose /EFI/Clover/config.plist (this is your current Clover configuration) In the ACPI tab, deselect FixDisplay. Make sure the DSDT name is DSDT.aml Under Graphics, select Inject EDID Choose File->Save (now you no longer have to select those options at boot time) Step 4: Touchpad and Keyboard Download EMlyDinEsH's Elan drivers (latest is 2.8.3 at time of writing): http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ In finder, go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete the following if you can find them: ApplePS2Controller, VoodooPS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, ApplePS2Keyboard and anything that says Elan Touchpad. Using Kext Wizard, install ApplePS2Controller and ApplePS2ElanTouchpad kexts Reboot and enjoy. My keyboard glows,using my windows settings. Also, note: the touchpad is a little jerky... I think this is because of the graphics driver, but it's functional. Step 5: Ext4 (for linux peeps) Buy or try the trial of Paragon Extfs... I couldn't get anything else to read my partitions. They overcharge, buy hey, it works... Step 6: Audio (output) A bit complicated. You need to patch your DSDT, install an updated HDA driver, and maybe install VoodooHDA. I had VoodooHDA installed before I did the rest and I just left it installed... I am not sure if it is required or makes things worse (maybe input works without it?) I dunno. I would try without it first and then install it after if you need it. Download a Java runtime for 10.9 (google JavaForOSX2013-05.dmg) Download DSDT Editor (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/223205-dsdt-editor-and-patcher/ ) Download RehabMan's audio 12 layout patch: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/blob/master/audio_HDEF-layout12.txt Edit the patch and remove all the instances of "\n" Run DSDT editor and Choose File->Extract DSDT from the top bar, this will get your DSDT from your BIOS Choose Patch->Open from the top bar, and select the audio 12 patch Select Patch Now choose File->Save DSL from the top bar and save this to your Desktop as DSDT.aml Now copy this to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin Now download and use Kext Wizard to install the AppleHDA.kext from RehabMan found here: (reference: here) Restart and cheer! If it doesn't work, or you want more controls, install VoodooHDA. Make sure PCM is turned up in the VoodooHDA control panel thing. If you need mic input, etc. working, the DSDT patch is probably where you need to be digging. Post results please. Step 7: USB Wireless You will need to either install a wireless card that works with MacOS (advanced, warranty-voiding, numerous guides found elsewhere on this forum) or else buy yourself a compatible usb wireless adapter (easy, cheap). I bought this one for 8$ and it works perfectly with the drivers on the CD it came with: GMYLE Wireless 11n USB Adapter Step 8: Final notes If the computer goes to sleep it will plant, so go into the power settings and tell it not to go to sleep! (if you fix this, please post here) No networking... buy yourself a Mavericks compatible usb network adapter (will let you know when I get one working) Give credit and donations to the fine people that made these tools and patches, I just assembled them to make it work on this dreamy computer. I will try to post a zip file with some of these kexts, etc. later. If you are having trouble, in the clover boot options, add "-v" (without quotes) to the boot options. This will give a more verbose output and may indicate the issue If you are not using Clover, the busratio for this computer is 24. Adding "busratio=24" to the boot-up options (without quotes) might help for other loaders (Clover autodetects this) If you get some extra hardware working, please let us know! MSI GS70 Hardware Specifications: CPU: i7-4700HQ (2.4GHz, Haswell) Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Accelerated Graphics: NVidia GTX 765M Integrated Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600 (8086:0416) Audio: Creative X-Fi.

  9. Version


    This is a patched version of an official vanilla mach_kernel from Mavericks 10.9.5, allowing Z87 Haswell motherboards capable of booting without reboot loops or kernel panics. The following perl scripts have been applied to the vanilla mach_kernel for 10.9.5: #1 perl -pi -e 's|\x74\x6c(\x48\x83\xc7\x28\x90\x8b\x05..\x5e\x00\x85\x47\xdc)\x74\x54(\x8b\x4f\xd8\x45\x85\xc0\x74\x08\x44\x39\xc1\x44\x89\xc1)\x75\x44(\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x57\xf8\x48\x8b\x47\xe8\x48\x85\xc0\x74\x06\x48\xf7\xd0\x48\x21\xc2\x48\x0b\x57\xf0\x49\x89\xd1\x49\xc1\xe9\x20\x89\xd0\x8b\x4f\xd8\x4c\x89\xca)(\x0f\x30\x8b\x4f\xd8\x0f\x32\x89\xc0\x48\xc1\xe2\x20\x48\x09\xc2\x48\x89\x17\x48\x83\xc7\x30\xff\xce)\x75\x99(\x5d\xc3)\x90{7}|\x74\x73${1}\x74\x5b${2}\x75\x4b${3}\x66\x81\xf9\xe2\x00\x74\x02${4}\x75\x92${5}|g' mach_kernel #2 perl -pi -e 's|(\x25\x1c\x00\x00\x00\x48\x8d\x0d..\x5e\x00\x3b\x01)\x74(\x11\x48\x8d\x3d...\x00\x44)|${1}\xeb${2}|g' mach_kernel I take no credit for the creation of the perl scripts used. Patches #1 & #2 have been documented on this blog by the original owner here. Shout outs to Pike R. Alpha whose code the patches are based on, he lives here. Tested on EVGA Z87 FTW Please let me know if it works well for you so I can confirm the amount of success users are having. Thanks

    10.9 Kernel [XCPM-free]



    UPDATE: Thanks to the efforts of RehabMan, Clover/Chameleon both have kernel PM patches built in to deal with the CPU checks in newer revisions. You'd be better off using one of those instead of this kernel now. It has been rendered obsolete by his patches. ORIGINAL CONTENT: I compiled this kernel from Apple's source and since they don't include XCPM in their source, this kernel is without it. This kernel is recommended to anyone who experiences instant reboots with the vanilla 10.9 kernel. With the exception of lacking XCPM, this kernel is completely unaltered from the vanilla stock version. A patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from 10.8.5 is REQUIRED if you expect CPUPM functionality. Please consider rating this if you found it useful. Thank you and enjoy. Credit to RehabMan for discovering XCPM isn't included in Apple's sources when he compiled his 10.9 kernel. Thanks to ameris_cyning for reminding me to add the patched AICPUPM requirement.

    Mavericks MBR patch

    Version 10.9 DP1

    Mavericks MBR patch

    Version 10.9.5


    Patched OSInstall.mpkg and OSInstall framework to allow installation on MBR partition. To use these patched files you must create an installer using this method (Pandora's Box should also work). You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store. After creating the installer, run this command in terminal replacing "installer volume name" by the name of your installer drive. If it contains spaces, surround the name by " or precede each space with \ (you can just drag and drop the drive to terminal when typing the command) sudo tar zxvf ~/Downloads/Mavericks_10.9.5_MBR_Patch.tar.gz -C /Volumes/"installer volume name" If you download with Safari, it will automatically expand the gz, so the command should be sudo tar xvf ~/Downloads/Mavericks_10.9.5_MBR_Patch.tar -C /Volumes/"installer volume name"
  18. Hello. I had fully-working codec for ALC670, but there was only two issues. The first, endless assertions 03/10/13 20:56:34,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAWidget at line 2181 03/10/13 20:57:24,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAWidget at line 2181 03/10/13 20:58:14,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAWidget at line 2181 03/10/13 20:59:24,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAWidget at line 2181 03/10/13 21:00:25,000 kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDAWidget at line 2181 The second, two pops when computer goes to sleep and wakes up.(Only for Mavericks) I decided to solve the problem with Assertions. I tried to do much on my own, but it was unsuccessful. After I asked TimeWalker for any help, he guessed that the problem was with SPDIF as AppleHDA was looking for special type of node, namely 0x04. pinconfig for SPDIF 01e71c60 - Association Nr/ Sequence Nr 0 01e71d11 - Black / Reserved 01e71e4b - SPDIF / Combo 01e71f01 - Port is connected to a Jack / External on primary chassis / Rear pin-default for this node is 0x014b1160, and driver want to have 04 at one specific place(but it was only a supposition) Of course, I tried all possible variants. But it was unsecesfful either.

  19. hi guys! im trying to install mavericks but halfway through install it just gives me error and stops there, i am attaching the installer log here, please tell me what i missed along the way Installer Log 15-Dec-2017.txt my specs are: asus h61m-k intel core i3 3220 amd radeon hd6670 thanks in advance!
  20. Following a week of trial and error (a lot of errors), I was finally able to install last night my first Hackintosh! First attempt using Clover boot loader did not work and resulted mostly in kernel panic. Second attempt with Chameleon got me closer, but still I could not figure out what was wrong. The one thing that my gut feeling told me was that I may need to make sure I have maxed out my RAM with identical SO-DIMMs. When I started, the Elitebook had one 4GB and one 2GB SO-DIMM. When I tried swapping, there were further problems which could only be resolved by resetting the BIOS to default. After that, everything went mostly smoothly. This is my current BIOS configuration: With the boot flags -x -v -f I was able to finally get the installation completed: Could create an account and log in: and these are the screenshots showing the OS X: and as what the Elitebook is known to the Apple world, as a MacBook Pro 6.2: I'll post more details in a follow-up. Many special thanks go to all who have helped, but in particular to iFire, artur-pt, PJALM, joe75, Download-Fritz and Joseph. Apologies if I forgot any of the many from this forum who have actively helped me to get this far. Attached is the Manual for the HP8440p with hardware specifications, which is useful to know what kind of kexts to install. HP8440p Manual.pdf
  21. Hello I'm having audio issues with my Dell Vostro 2520's microphone with VoodooHDA The internal microphone isn't detected, yet the microphone audio port is detected, and works. According to Windows and Dell, my laptop has the Cirrus Logic CS4213 codec in it, so if that's important, there it is. I am on Mavericks 10.9.5, since that works the best on this laptop, but would be open to try newer versions if things work well enough. I can provide my DSDT if needed.
  22. I originally wrote this "How To" in the following topic "Workstation 8/9, Player 4/5 and Fusion 4/5 Mac OS X Unlocker" started by Donk, see link below, since there are now some 500+ replies in the topic, I thought it was time to extract the post and start a new topic. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/268531-workstation-89-player-45-and-fusion-45-mac-os-x-unlocker/ Although a lot of alternative methods are available, the following "How To" based on the work by Donk, Zenith432 and others on "InsanelyMac" is a proven method for installing a "Vanilla / Retail" version of OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), 10.7 (Lion), 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.9 (Mavericks), 10.10 (Yosemite) and 10.11 (El Capitan) under VMware Workstation 10/11, Player 6/7, Workstation Pro/Player 12 and ESXi 5/6, using physical media (Snow Leopard) or an email with a content code for the Mac App Store (Lion and Mountain Lion) purchased from the Apple Store or media created from the App Store download. If you have access to an existing OS X machine physical or virtual you can download OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), 10.10 (Yosemite) or 10.11 (El Capitan) for free. It is important for the method detailed below to work, you must be running a relatively recent Intel processor with VT-x (Hardware Virtualisation) support which has been enabled in BIOS. Install the "Unlocker" following the included readme.txt, version 1.3.x for Workstation 10, Player 6 or ESXi 5 and "Unlocker" version 2.0.x for Workstation 11, Player 7, Workstation Pro/Player 12 and ESXi 6 created by Donk based on work by Donk, Zenith432 and Sam B, see the links below, to enable support for OS X. If you have access to an OS X machine, Redeem your purchase and download OS X from the Mac App Store under Purchases or use Updates to get OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), 10.10 (Yosemite) or 10.11 (El Capitan) once downloaded on your OS X machine extract the InstallESD.dmg from your App Store download of "Install OS X Lion" or "Install OS X Mountain Lion" in the Applications folder, right click the icon and select "Show Package Contents" open folder "SharedSupport" and copy the InstallESD.dmg to your desktop. Link to the "Unlocker" download to support Workstation 10.x, Player 6.x, Fusion 6.x and ESXi 5.x: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/20-vmware-unlocker-for-os-x/ Link to the "Unlocker" download to support Workstation 11.x, Workstation Pro 12.x, Player 7.x, Workstation Player 12.x, Fusion 7.x, Fusion 8.x and ESXi 6.x: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/339-unlocker/ Please note this media creation method will NOT work for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) an apple script is required to create a bootable DMG file from the "Install OS X Mavericks" or "Install OS X Yosemite" app downloaded from the Mac App Store, see the second post in this thread for details, link below: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/290949-how-to-install-os-x-10x-snow-leopard-lion-mountain-lion-mavericks-and-yosemite-in-vmware-workstation-10-or-player-6/?p=1937757 If you do not have access to an OS X machine, then purchase the OS X Snow Leopard DVD from the Apple Store ($19.99 US or £14.00 UK), you can use the DVD directly but it is easier to covert the DVD to an ISO. In order for you to be able to use the .dmg created for Lion or Mountain Lion as install media in Workstation 10/11 or Player 6/7 (Workstation Pro 12, Workstation Player 12, Fusion 6, 7 and 8, ESXi 5.1, 5.1 U1, 5.5, 5.5 U1, 5.5 U2, 5.5 U3, ESXi 6.0 and ESXi 6.0 U1x support .dmg files directly) the .dmg will have to be converted to an .iso, this can be done at the command line in OS X see below or in Windows using a third party product like ImgBurn ( http://www.imgburn.com/ ) or dmg2img ( http://vu1tur.eu.org/tools/ ) . In an OS X terminal session run the following: cd Desktop hdiutil convert ./InstallESD.dmg -format UDTO -o InstallESD mv InstallESD.cdr InstallESD.iso The conversion process will take some time, so apply the cup of coffee rule. The conversion process actually creates a .cdr file which we rename with the mv command to a .iso which can be mounted as installable media in Workstation 10/11 and Player 6/7. If the "Unlocker" has been installed correctly you should now be able to create a new Apple Mac OS X Guest operating system in Workstation 10/11, Workstation Pro 12, Player 6/7, Workstation Player 12 and ESXi 5/6 and select the InstallESD.iso you have created as the "Installer disc image file (iso):" and select Apple Mac OS X as the "Guest operating system" and Mac OS X Server 10.6 64-bit, Mac OS X 10.7 64-bit, Mac OS X 10.8 or Mac OS X 10.9 as the "Version". Mac OS X 10.9 can be installed from the .dmg created via the script detailed in the second post of this topic as can Mac OS X 10.10 which is only available as an option in Workstation 11, Workstation Pro 12, Player 7, Workstation Player 12 and ESXi 6, although Mac OS X 10.10 or 10.11 can be installed in Workstation 10, Player 6 or ESXi 5 using Mac OS X 10.9 as the "Version". Please note Mac OS X 10.11 is only available as an option in Workstation Pro 12, Workstation Player 12 and ESXi 6. Next choose a name and location for the virtual machine, then specify the "Maximum disk size (GB):" (I always select a minimum of 64 GB) and whether to "Store virtual disk as a single file" or "Split virtual disk into multiple files", (I select single file for ease of portability, but in theory selecting multiple files should offer better performance), however the default settings work fine. You now have the option to either Finish and create the Virtual Machine or "Customize Hardware...", I recommend adding a second core under the "Processors" section (although you may get the "Your Mac OS guest might run unreliably with more than one virtual core." warning message) and change the "Network Adapter" to "Bridged" (in theory these are optional, the default settings should will work fine, but experience would suggest using the recommended settings) select Close and Finish. It has been noted, thanks to cb4, that sometimes you get no keyboard input in the virtual machine, setting the "Enhanced virtual keyboard" from "Off" to "Use if available (recommended)" resolves the issue, and does not appear to have any issues when set on for a working OS X Virtual Machine. To disable the VMware multiple vCPU message add the following line to the VMX configuration for the guest whilst it is shutdown. isolation.tools.bug328986.disable = "TRUE" Please note this will only suppress the message, and the guest may be unstable with more than 1 vCPU, however since it is a very long time since real Mac's were not at least dual core, I always add at least two vCPU's, and have not experienced any instability. Thanks to Donk for the fix, for additional information head over to the website "Shine The Braille Toad". If you create the virtual machine using version 11 or later hardware, the default for Workstation 11, the virtual machine will not start and either hang or create a CPU core dump error message. Donk has confirmed two options to work around the issue: 1. Change the virtual machine to version 10 hardware. 2. Edit the configuration file (.vmx) and add the following line: smc.version = "0" Power on the virtual machine and the OS X installation should proceed to the Welcome screen, select your main language, and in the OS X Utilities screen select Disk Utility. In the left panel you should now see 68.72 GB VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media, or similar depending on the hard drive size you set when creating the virtual machine, select the drive, and select the Partition tab. Next change the Partition Layout: from "Current" to "1 Partition", you can select more than one partition but I generally keep it simple, give the Partition a meaningful name, i.e. OS X, and click on the Apply button (the default format "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" should be selected, and under the "Options..." button "GUID Partition Table" should be selected), you will next get an "Are you sure" warning, click on the Partition button to complete the creation of OS X formatted partition, you should see it appear below the VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media. The DIsk Utility presentation has changed in El Capitan, having selected the VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media as detailed above select the Erase button, the Partition button will be grayed out, and give the drive a meaningful Name: i.e. OS X and select "OS X Extended (Journaled)" as the Format: finally select "GUID Partition Map" as the Scheme and press the blue Erase button to create the drive ready for use by OS X. Now exit Disk Utility and select Reinstall or Install OS X, click Continue at the Install OS X screen and agree to the Apple EULA, at the Select the disk where you want to install OS X, you should have a nice yellow OS X disk in the middle of the screen, select the disk and click on Install, the installation should then proceed with a blue progress bar and "About 9 minutes remaining", following a re-boot OS X will continue "Installing OS X on the disk "OS X ..." again with a blue progress bar and "Time remaining: About 19 minutes", if the screen goes white with only a black mouse pointer, just click to bring back the install OS X screen. Following a further re-boot you should finally be at the Welcome screen with a map of the world and the option to select your language, followed by "Select Your Keyboard" to get the best support for a PC keyboard select the Show All and choose the relevant "Your Language - PC" version, i.e. British - PC. The next couple of screens may or may not appear depending on your network configuration, "How Do You Connect?", "Your Internet Connection" probably best to leave "TCP/IP Connection Type" Using DHCP initially. The next screen to appear is the "Transfer Information to This Mac", "Sign in with Your Apple ID" if you choose Don't sign in, you will get a splash screen with the option to "Skip", "Terms and Conditions", "Create Your Computer Account", "Select You Time Zone", "Diagnostics & Usage" followed by a "Setting up your Mac" and a thank you from Apple you should then be at the OS X desktop. This will create a vanilla install of OS X which can and should be patched via "Software Update..." as a matter of priority. It appears that like ESXi 5.5 and ESXi 6, Workstation Pro/Player 12 using Unlocker 2.0.7 or later, Install VMware Tools... under the VM tab now appears to work, if not use the method as for previous versions of Workstation and Player detailed below: To install "VMware Tools" go to the Virtual Machine Settings for the OS X VM and select CD/DVD (IDE) and under "Connection" click on "Use ISO image file:". It is quite likely your InstallESD.iso will still be selected, so just "Browse..." to the location of the darwin.iso and select "Open". The darwin.iso is not present in a standard install of either Workstation 10/11, Workstation Pro 12, Player 6/7 or Workstation Player 12, it is added as part of the "Unlocker" install and is located in the VMware Workstation folder under "Program Files (x86)\VMware" or "Program Files\VMware" for a 32-bit host in a default install, make sure the "Device status" has "Connected" ticked generally "Connect at power on" is ticked by default. You may get an error when switching mounted .iso's in the Virtual Machine Settings "The guest operating system has locked the CD-ROM door..." it is OK to answer "Yes" to the question "Disconnect anyway and override the lock?". In your OS X desktop a VMware Tools icon should appear in the upper right corner, double click and select "Install VMware Tools", it is recommended to install VMware Tools as it offers an enhanced user experience when working with the Virtual Machine. Please note VMware Tools cannot be installed from the menu in Workstation 10/11 or Player 6/7 to an OS X Virtual Machine (unlike Fusion, ESXi 5.x snd ESXi 6.x and now Workstation Pro 12 and Workstation Player 12 which support VMware Tools installation from the menu). The latest VMware Tools from Fusion 7/8 now provide the best graphics support for OS X virtual machines, and Zenith432 has stopped development of the VMsvga2 graphics drivers. The latest darwin.iso is available to download at the VMware CDS Repository, see link below: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/user/487896-msok/ http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/ Once you are up and running with your virtual OS X machine you need to do a couple of housekeeping tasks to ensure your virtual machine does not freeze. Firstly go to "System Preferences" and select "Energy Saver" and set "Computer sleep:" and "Display sleep:" to Never and also un-tick "Put hard disks to sleep when possible", "Wake for Ethernet network access" and "Allow power button to put the computer to sleep". In "Desktop & Screen Saver" set "Screen Saver" to "Start after:" Never. One final note, occasionally you can come across an unsupported CPU error, this should be rare if you have recently downloaded your OS X media from the App Store as the App Store version is updated when a new combo patch is released. Alternatively if your CPU is one of the very latest Intel processors not yet supported by OS X, Apple check CPUID's when installing OS X, and will not install on an unsupported processor platform. (A prime example was when Intel introduced the Core i3, i5 and i7 and Xeon 5600 series processors, Snow Leopard 10.6.4 was the lowest version of OS X to support the new processors, unfortunately the highest available "vanilla" media was and still is 10.6.3, without the CPUID mask it was impossible to install OS X Snow Leopard. As stated earlier in this post, Apple starting with OS X 10.7 Lion deliver the latest slipstreamed media via the App Store.) In either case add the following line to your OS X virtual machine configuration file (.vmx): cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" or cpuid.1.eax = "----:----:----:0010:----:----:1010:0111" The first was based on work by myself and Donk, the second a recommendation by jmattson of VMware, see links below: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/232183-snow-leopard-on-vmware-and-disabled-cpu-error/ http://communities.vmware.com/thread/423099?start=30&tstart=0

  24. I know this is kind of broad, but if I build a workstation that's well supported on High Sierra now, how likely is it to still work well with the next major OSx release next fall? If you had to guess, what % chance do I have of encountering major issues when trying to update next fall? The kinds of issues that would seriously interfere with my day to day work of photo and video editing? For example, kext/kernel panics (is that even a thing still?) or major pieces of hardware suddenly not being supported, and so on... Has migrating your Hackintosh to the latest release has gotten easier in recent years? So for those of you who have been making builds for a while, is going from Sierra to High Sierra causing you fewer problems than Mavericks --> Yosemite for example or Yosemite --> El Capitan etc? Sorry if this is a bit broad and ignorant, but I've been away from the forums for quite a while and just trying to get a sense of how "stable" and "future-proof" Hackintoshes are these days - compared to Apple's own desktops ... I'm OK not updating incrementally ie v13.1 to v13.2 if I need to, but I'm worried about having to start completely from scratch with each new main version.
  25. Fujitsu Lifebook E752 Il notebook in questione è un modello professionale, con pochi fronzoli ed orientato più alla stabilità che alla velocità, il processore è un modello i5 3230m Pro, ha solo 4gb di RAM DDR3 a 1600Mhz e la grafica è la classica HD4000 integrata; nonostante questo le performances sono di tutto rispetto, non soffre di rallentamenti o freeze e i programmi più comuni, Office e Photoshop compresi, vengono eseguiti senza problemi; non si può dire che sia un portatile leggero, rispetto alla media del periodo di costruzione è decisamente "meno portatile". Ovviamente appena arrivato a casa ho smontato il disco originale ed ho montato un SSD da 120Gb Per iniziare: Un Mac o un Hack funzionanti USB da 8 Gb App di Mavericks, Yosemite e in futuro El Capitan Se non si dispone di un Mac o un Hack si può usare la distro Niresh La creazione della pendrive viene eseguita secondo il metodo classico, descritta nelle mie guide in firma, con il bootloader installato nella root della pendrive (è indifferente usare Chameleon o Clover). Chameleon: mettete nelle flag di boot GraphicsEnabler=Yes IntelCapriFB=3 ed avrete piena accelerazione video dal primo momento, UseKernelCache=No per caricare i kext da Extra/Extensions. nella cartella Extra/Extensions mettete FakeSMC, ApplePS2Controller e NullCPUPowerManagement (se non avete intenzione di modificare il bios, se invece l’avete già fatto con UEFI Patch il Null non vi serve); create un SMbios MacBookPro9,2 o MacBookAir 5,2. Avviate dalla chiavetta con -v ed una volta arrivati alla schermata d’installazione scegliete Utility Disco, formattate il vostro disco in Mac OS Esteso con tabella partizioni GUID ed installate. Al riavvio sarà necessario usare la pendrive per avviare da HD, fate la configurazione iniziale ed arriverete al desktop di Yosemite (o Mavericks). A questo punto dovrete installare i kext per il sistema in S/L/E con Kext Wizard (i kext sono in allegato a fine post). Installate Chameleon cambiando la flag UseKernelCache=No in Yes Clover: consiglio di avviare senza iniezione grafica, questa sarà abilitata in seguito grazie al DSDT, da Clover Configurator flaggate la patch per AsusAICPUPM (così non servirà NullCPUPM), aggiungete kext-dev-mode=1 e scegliete Inject kext Yes; togliete tutte le lag dalla sezione ACPI, sia Old Way che New Way. Nella cartella CLOVER/kexts/10.10 (o 10.9) servono FakeSMC e ApplePS2Controller. Stessa procedura d’avvio descritta sopra (riavvio ed installazione kext in S/L/E compresi). Installate Clover Legacy nella root del disco o, come nel mio caso, nella EFI copiando il config.plist della pendrive, modificate la parte Inject Kext da Yes a No. A questo punto scaricate MacIASL ed estraete il DSDT, correggete gli errori ed applicate la patch per HD4000, salvate il DSDT e mettetelo in CLOVER/ACPI/Patched, riavviando da HD avrete l’accelerazione grafica. Se vi trovate in difficoltà con MacIASL scaricate DSDT Editor e installate Java, necessario per far funzionare il programma. Di seguito la lista completa delle patch applicate al DSDT: Tutte le patch sono disponibili da DSDT Editor, tranne le ultime 2. DTGP EHCI FN Keys IRQS LPC PNLF Shutdown SMBUS HD4000 (disponibile da MacIASL nella repo di Rehabman) USB3 Power (disponibile da MacIASL nella repo di Rehabman) DSM per HDEF (credits to Mirone) Disabilitato la seconda batteria (che non ho) aggiungendo un Return (Zero) alla fine del method CMB2, questo per visualizzare correttamente lo stato della batteria (thanks to Rehabman) Il DSDT può essere ovviamente usato anche con Chameleon, basta togliere le flag per la grafica da org.chameleon.Boot.plist Cosa non funziona: WiFi (sostituita con Mini half PCI-E AR5B93) Lettore di schede (Realtek RTS5229, non funzionerà mai) Pregi: Possibilità di aggiungere un disco mSata in PCI-E Presa composita USB3-eSata Accessori (non compresi) interessanti, in particolare una seconda batteria o un secondo HD da collegare al posto del lettore DVD e un port replicator comprendente 4 usb, 1 porta LAN, 1 seriale, 1 parallela, 1 eSata e uscite video aggiuntive VGA, DVI e Display Port Vano per Sim Card nell’alloggiamento batteria Autonomia della batteria (arriva tranquillamente a 3 ore) Temperatura processore (intorno ai 45-50°, max 66° durante l’esecuzione del Geekbench) Velocità e reattività del sistema Difetti: Display LCD opaco e con poco contrasto (sarebbe stato molto meglio a LED e magari lucido) Mancanza di una Webcam Bassa quantità di RAM Uscite esterne: VGA (che non funziona) e DP (sarebbe stato meglio una HDMI) Bios Phoenix UEFI che non permette l’avvio di Clover in UEFI (non carica nulla)​ Peso (praticamente un macigno) Kexts.zip
