  1. First Hackintosh ever and first PC build in a very long time. Initial setup worked OOB, but tweaking—especially Thunderbolt—was somewhat painful at times. I hope this helps others too I set this up for video production and image processing, not for gaming, so some parts of the system might look wimpy and others will be overkill. Also, I plan to dial back some of the overclocking; these settings are as far as I could go. The links are meant to see the exact same product as I used, but are not affiliate links—nor do I endorse anything. I'm just sending you to places where you can see what I tried and used.

WBTUO LM900 Micro USB3.0 TO M.2 PCI-E SSD Enclosure NGFF M-KEY PCIE Support AHCI for 2230 2242 2260 2280 SSD; I got it for an extra M-key PCIe SSD that I had. It turns out that this item cannot host NVMe, which wasn’t stated up front. PwrLink Adpt Graphics Cd Acces 600-PL-2816-LR ; angled power-bracket for EVGA 1080, worked great with regular 330R panel, but when I decided to install a ventilated 300R panel with fans, the bracket and the fans interfered. So I took it out. The bottom PCI 1x slot shares/blocks a SATA connector. That is not documented in the manual and I therefore got the Vantec card to compensate for the lost SATA Ports Installing the Alpine Ridge card essentially voids the lower M.2 slot. It should share bandwidth, but apparently the Alpine Ridge card only runs at 4x, so you have to leave the lower M.2 slot empty for Thunderbolt to work. Installing a USB 3.1 Gen 2 header cable (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAE4P6PP9074) will deactivate Thunderbolt. Not only that, it will reset any driver memory. If you have Thunderbolt working, do not touch that connector. Just don’t.

SilverStone USB 3.1 Gen 2.0 PCIe with internal 19-pin connector — ECU05, ˚https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HZ0XVJO/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, $47.99, middle PCIe 16x slot (needs 2x slot or above, based on ASMedia ASM1142 controller) needed to power multi-card reader in addition to Carbide 330R front panel ports. Great card, highly recommended, but in my case, it took a slot that dropped the GPU to 8x, so I had to find a 1x PCI solution. Thunderbolt: boot into Windows and connect a Thunderbolt device; I used an OWC TB 2 dock. When recognized, reboot into Mac OS X; I used a G-Drive TB 2 drive for that, as the OWC didn’t show up. Once the G-Drive showed up, I was able to hot-add the dock. No issues since (aside from using the internal USB 3.1 Gen 2 header, which led to a big mess; see next item). Note that if you disconnect the computer from power, you will have to boot into Windows again and connect a Thunderbolt device again prior to booting into Mac OS X. Chenyang USB 3.1 Front Panel Header to USB 3.0 20Pin Header Extension Cable 20cm for ASUS Motherboard, https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAE4P6PP9074&ignorebbr=1, $18.88; replaced SilverStone board for internal 19-pin, freeing up one 16x PCIe slot. This disables the Thunderbolt header, as reported in other forums (and if you even try that port, you will have to go through the whole Thunderbolt install process again…). I also tried a header splitter cable, https://www.moddiy.com/products/20%252dPin-USB-3.0-Internal-Header-Y-Splitter-Cable-%2812cm%29.html, but that didn't work either.

Works for me, but use at your own peril! EVGA 1080 apparently doesn’t store OC settings in memory; you have to either ( a ) reset every time or ( b ) flash to BIOS. For ( a ) there is no software that I can find for MacOS; maybe someone knows how to port Nvidiux or similar utilities for command-line setup. For ( b ), NVIDIA apparently have locked Pascal boards for BIOS mods, so you can’t set up the board in Windows, flash it, and maintain settings in MacOS X. Benchmarks, snapshots, BIOS settings (partial), and config (serial changed) are attached. Many thanks to @joevt for advice and ideas while dealing with Thunderbolt and to @glasgood for a terrific guide when it came to fine-tuning. config-changed serial.plist.zip

  3. Let's cross reference the facts and settings and find out why we have the lags with the nVidia web drivers and why some other people don't have the lags. I have an EVGA 1070 SuperClocked GPU which is working pretty well under macOS Sierra and up to macOS 10.13.2 the last macOS update and the nVidia web driver didn't go so well. So far I tried all the following options but nothing seems to work: 1. Used only clover's on the fly patch for the board-id to avoid the black screen issue 2. Used Lilu and nVidiaGraphicsFixUp 3. Used only AGDPFix without any other patches or kexts 4. Activated the iGPU 5. used ACPI patches to change the PEG0 to GFX0 6. Used iMacPro SMBIOS without any patches or kext Nothing seems to work so far except for the patched version of the 104 or 106 web driver which has the lags but it's way better than the last drivers. To all people with no lags: Please share your EFI folders if you can. (Please remove the serial number, MLB, UUID and all the private stuff from your config.plist and also remove "themes" and "Apple" Folder before posting it) and please share your hardware specs with the firmware version (BIOS/UEFI version) Thank you all You can test the following sites to see wether you have the lags or not: http://madebyevan.com/webgl-water/ (thanks to @maerten) or http://www.bongiovi..../webgl/blossom/ (thanks to @TheBloke)

    Weird display issues with gxt1060

    Hi, i recently set up High Sierra on my AMD computer with the help of the amdosx community (i actually used an installer just to confirm that something would work in the first place before i spend hours for nothing, i can and could have downloaded High Sierra the "legal" way). However the graphicscard is recognized properly, the 6gig are recognized and i have no artifacts and no screen tearing with the official nvidia webdriver, but unfortunally, dark colors have horizontal dark stripes in them and specific bright colors like on left bar of system windows such as settings do flicker like low fps. I only used the clover on the flash drive for now and i'd like if it's worth digging deeper of if i should just forget about it as it is a common nvidia problem on macOS. Would be amazing to know. Closer machine infos: * High Sierra (misses a recent minor patch as my network is veeeery slow and i got this nvidia issue anyway so i mainly jumped back to linux) * AMD fx8350 * Asus Sabertooth 990fx Ref. 2.0 * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  5. 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.
  6. I recently set up my hackintosh. Everything else works fine, the only issue is my monitor cannot come back from sleep. Symptom: If I click the "sleep" menu manually, the system goes to sleep fine. After the system sleeps for a while (more than a few mins, I guess it's called "deep sleep"), when I try to wake it up, the monitor wakes up but stays black screen. The machine is on. If I leave the system to time out and sleep by itself, only the monitor goes off; when I try to wake it up, same symptom as above. What I have tried (but none worked): additional boot flag: ngfxpatch=pikera additional boot flag: darkwake = 0 Customize EDID Specs: Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77x-UD5H BIOS: F16j CPU: Ivy Bridge i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz (quad core) Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1050 Monitor: Dell P2715Q @ 4k / 60Hz, Display Port Wifi / Bluetooth: BCM94360CS with PCIE Onboard GPU: disabled OS: High Sierra 10.13.3 Please see attached for following files: EFI zip file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8nun37msu9b1bva/EFI.zip?dl=0 I generated my own SSDT.aml using ssdtPRGen.sh; Other SSDT patches are copied from this repository: https://github.com/VoiletDragon/Z77X-UD5H-Clover-Hotpatch-Patches ioreg dump: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5a10k82guczaaws/macchiato.ioreg.zip?dl=0 result from following command: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0b22qcw79ovnjdg/kext-touch.txt.zip?dl=0 kextstat|grep -y acpiplat kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu kextstat|grep -y applelpc kextstat|grep -y applehda sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / I am looking forward to your suggestions.

When I installed 10.13.4 I tried to boot macOS with iGPU enabled only in BIOS (without injecting and kexts, HD 4600) and my daily use dGPU (GTX 750 Ti, injected in config and web drivers enabled) and everything works fine, but it boots slower. There is a chance to make fully working dGPU and iGPU at one time? With kexts, injects, et cetera? Something like dGPU as eGPU and iGPU as main GPU? I don't want to break my build, so I am asking you before trying it. My computer: MOBO: Gigabyte P85-D3 GPU: Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Windforce (2GB VRAM) CPU: i5-4670 RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Audio: ALC887 Ethernet: Realtek RTL 8111 Drives: SSD Goodram 240GB and HDD 1TB.

    GeForce 9800 gx2 Sierra/High Sierra

    Hi, not so much ago i got a geforce 9800 gx2 and i was wondering how do i get it to work on sierra/high sierra? i have tryied a lot of things but nothing worked, i always got a black screen, the only way to get it to boot is by using -nv_disable=1 which will boot the system of course without video acceleration but with one of the 2 gpus detected and the other not. since i am going to use this card for my 2008 dream hackintosh build, with sierra, how do i make it to work? Thanks for your answers
  10. 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.

  11. Hi, I noticed some weird behavior with macOS High Sierra. This system was working just fine on Sierra 10.12.5, until I decided to update to High Sierra (10.13.3). The upgrade process went mostly fine I guess, but it got stuck in an infinite spinning wheel which would just keep overlapping. I went into verbose mode, and sure enough, I found "IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0" repeating over and over along with ACM errors... I'm really lost right now. I can boot in recovery mode and safe mode just fine, when the graphics drivers aren't loaded. Web drivers aren't installed. I installed NvidiaGraphicsFixup, but it didn't fix the issue. I tried deleting the native graphics drivers from macOS and installing web drivers, but it didn't help. SMBIOS: iMac13,1 Graphics card: ASUS GT630-2GD3 (It's a Fermi card and it needs injection, so I modified my DSDT. Full graphics acceleration worked in Sierra. No Clover injection. I tried using Clover injection instead, I saw no difference.) CPU: Intel Core i3-3210, iGPU disabled in UEFI All kexts updated to their latest versions, along with Clover. For more info, you can refer to the GitHub issue where I posted it. https://github.com/lvs1974/NvidiaGraphicsFixup/issues/3 Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time! config.plist

    Xeon E5450 with Nvidia GPU glitch

    Hi guys, I have a weird problem using an Xeon E5450(775 modded) with nvidia card(8600gt & Quadro 580 FX same problem). First I want to say that in windows I don't have any problem, so it's not something about compatibility. When I try to boot in macOS with this cpu and nvidia video card I get only a glitch displayed(see attachments), the computer isn't froze, I can access it with ssh or file sharing, only no image. If I boot with nv_disable=1 flag I get image(no acceleration of course) and everything's fine. I tried the cpu on 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards and the problem is the same. With amd video card I don't have this problem. What I tried and failed: Deleting injection from dsdt and injecting or not injecting with clover. Using nvidia web drivers. Changing CPU settings from bios, like virtualisation, speedstep etc. Different macos versions(10.11, 10.12, 10.13) The hack I want to use with this CPU is the Desktop from signature, I can provide dsdt or entire efi if it's needed but I don't think it matters since I have the same problem with 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards.
  13. Edited the 15/07/2014 Hi all ! After months of passive research i have found on some different forums a DSDT solution for disabling the NVidia card. Disabling Nvidia allow to save battery power of 2x and temperature of laptop too. My Specs Acer Aspire V3-571G-73614G50Makk :: Processor Intel Core i7-3610QM 2.3 GHz (Intel Core i7) :: Mainboard Intel HM77 (Panther Point) :: Memory 4096 MB :: Graphics adapter NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M - 2048 MB, Core: 708 MHz, Memory: 900 MHz, DDR3,, Optimus :: Display 15.6 inch 16:9, 1366x768 pixel, LG Philips LP156WH4-TLA1, TFT LED :: Soundcard Realtek ALC269 @ Intel Panther Point PCH - High Definition Audio Controller :: Networking Broadcom NetLink BCM57785 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (10/100/1000MBit), Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network Adapter (b g n ), 4.0 Bluetooth :: Optical drive MAT{censored}A DVD-RAM UJ8B0AW :: Hackintosh Config SMBios : Macmini6,2 org.chameleon.boot.plist : link DSDT : link Extra Folder : link Source DSDT/SSDT Method ( work on it, not fully fonctionnal ) : Link here DSDT Method (work with all bootloader) Instructions Needed AIDA64 version 2.80 --> link ssdtPRGen.sh --> link AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext --> link MacIASL --> link Disabling NVidia card In the first step, dump your dsdt from Windows with AIDA64 (version 2.80 max) --> tuto YouTube Reboot on OSX This patch don't need to extract or modify any SSDT. You can see the DSDT edits in the link of qwerty12 topic in credits. Quickly, in DSDT, i call external method for disabling the card. These links calls methods of SSDT-4 in my config but can be different with your machine. You don't need to copy manually the _OFF method from SSDT to DSDT. Add these lines if you don't have them to the top of your DSDT : [...] External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON, MethodObj) [...] I added the method M_OF before the _WAK method : [...] Method (M_OF, 0, NotSerialized) { If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF() } ​ } [...] After that, i call the M_OF method in _WAK : [...] Method (_WAK, 1, Serialized) { M_OF () If (LAnd (LEqual (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC0.AAST, One), LEqual (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC0.AAEN, One))) { Store (Zero, GP53) [...] And i call the M_OF method in the _INI method : [...] Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized) { Store (0x07D0, OSYS) M_OF () If (CondRefOf (\_OSI, Local0)) { If (_OSI ("Windows 2001")) [...] If you use Chameleon or branch, paste your modified DSDT to your Extra folder and add these options to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist : <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>No</string> If you use Clover Bootloader, copy DSDT file in "EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched" Reboot and go to Applications/Utilities/System Information Go to Graphics Card Section, if the NVidia Chipset not appear, it’s working. Enable the SpeedStep management The only problem with this technic is the Power Management. When your turn off the DropSSDT flags in org.chameleon.Boot.plist, Chameleon don’t go dump your SSDT tables in the ACPI tables of your machine. For enabling SpeedStepper with that fix, you should make a patched SSDT with the ssdtPRGen method : Download the later ssdtPRGen.sh Be sure that your SMBios.plist is appropriate with your CPU and system (A good SMBios can fix the iMessage, iCloud, iTunes and Apple Store connexion and login bugs). With my V3-571G core i7, i prefer the Macmini6,2 model for more speed steps. In Terminal app, launch the ssdtPRGen.sh with command : sudo sh /the_way_of_your_file/ssdtPRGen.sh Write your password and type "y" when it’s demanded for make a ssdt_pr.aml in your Extra folder only if you use Chameleon bootloader. If you use clover, copy this file in "EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched" and rename it to ssdt-1.aml. If you have already a ssdt-1, rename it to ssdt-2... Reboot To be sure that your Speed Stepper is patched, download the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext and add it to your System/Library/Extensions/ folder with the kext installer of your choice. I for one better in Kext Utility. Rebuild cache with the app of your choice (kext utility make that automaticly) and reboot. At start, open your terminal app and type this command : cat /var/log/system.log | grep "AICPUPMI:" If you can see a lot of P-States, you did a good job. About problems Problem with auto ON after sleep Past this method before the M_OF method in your DSDT : Method (M_ON, 0, NotSerialized) { If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON() } ​ } After that, call M_ON method in _PTS (Prepare To Sleep) so that the _WAK after sleep can shutdown the card.

    Vaio users black screen after boot

    Hi everybody ! let's start from the worst part : I have a vaio laptop :/ and looking for informations about my problem I could see that a lot of Vaio users have the same problem : Black screen after boot. What works on my laptop 1 - Wifi (internal) - Kext wizard 2 - Sounds 3 - Trackpad - Kext wizard 4 - Keyboard 5 - Bluetooth - Kext wizard What does NOT work: 1 - Internal monitor 2 - Advanced things that I don't know and someday will appear...hehe I need help from someone with knowledge in DSDT to try to patch my motherboard and make the internal monitor work properly. I could make a donation to this user that MAKE IT WORK (I promise). "Para brasileiros fica mais fácil de eu transferir algum dinheiro que eu ache justo, por favor não espere muito, pois é complicado..rsrs" I can send my DSDT and or any other system related file that you guys need to performe the patch. Hint: The hdmi out video and vga out works great with ce/qi perfect. But the internal monitor seems to be dead. It does not turns on not even praying! I already talked to Rehab and he said the does not know much about nvidia cards patch. I think we need to mod the nvidia driver and make a dsdt to make things work properly. Please let's help Vaio users. Also I want to share the DSDT code if you want this with other vaio users. Thank you guys. Keep in touch !

    Strange graphic glitches

    Since I've installed a new GTX 1050ti I'm experiencing strange graphic glitches, e.g. some parts of application screens get scrambled (graphic noise), see attached example where the same page is loaded in both Firefox (scrambled on the left) and Safari (normal on the right). I had to upgrade to a newer graphics card because my old GTX 660 was no longer supported in MacOS 10.13 High Sierra.

    NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app

    Version 1.5


    NVIDIA Web Driver Updater Application that search for the latest NVIDIA Web Drivers online and download the standard package from NVIDIA. What is special with this? Well, the downloaded package is modified on the fly to remove the hardware restriction, so you can immediately install the new drivers on your hackintosh! El Capitan Beta's and DPs are still supported! NEW! now NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app can patch NVDAStartupWeb.kext or install NVEnabler.kext, customizable as you wish! (since v1.1) TIP patching NVDAStartupWeb.kext the app show you the OS Build version actually used in the unpatched driver, so if you are in 10.10.1 you have to write the current OS build version ie: 15B42 sobstituing what you see in the field. This is to prevent users mistake clicking the patch button. Note: The InsanelyMac logo on the app is clickable and will connect you to the support topic here About vbios: if you need to use a video bios in OSX using this app, you can download and select one for your video card at Tech Power Up site! // NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater // // Created by Micky1979 and fantomas1 on 09/10/2015. // Copyright © 2015 InsanelyMac.

    NVidia Web Driver Modder

    Version 1.0


    After a build number increment (eg. 14C1510 -> 141514 ) the official NVidia Web Driver stop to work because of the internal check. This script helps you in patching the kext and add the relative boot-args. But this isn't the only functionality. There is also a useful function for users like me that haven't a "compatible" Mac ( I have a MacBook Pro 5,1 with GeForce 9600M GT) to patch also the installer. Usage (without quotes): "sudo NVidiaWebdriverModder.sh --skip-version-check" to patch the NVDAStartup.kext to load on the current system (need reboot and root user) "NVidiaWebdriverModder.sh WebDriver-xxx.xx.xxxxx.pkg" to patch the WebDriver.pkg installer file

    Version 1.3


    This is a simple Applescript app that will back up the AppleGraphicsControl.kex to your desktop in a folder called KextBackUp. It will then patch the /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist and change "Config1" to "none" for the MacPro6,1 board ID. This ensures that your GPU will not be effected by the MacPro6,1's AMD FirePro device policy that causes your GPU not to send a signal to your monitor at boot. This app is only useful if you are using the MacPro6,1 system definition. Credit to PikeRAlpha: https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/2014/05/01/os-x-mavericks-10-9-3-build-13d55-seeded/

    Two NVidia GPUs for extra displays?

    Hi all I am currently using an NVidia 760 with four connected displays. (I also own a 980Ti but it lags terribly so I reverted to the Kepler 760 which runs much better.) I would like to add at least one more display. I first tried to achieve this with a supposedly macOS-compatible USB 3 to DVI adapter, but this is not working at all for me. I thought I had to go this route because I am using every PCIe slot on my mobo except for one PCIe x1 slot. I've now realised, rather late, that actually there is a modern NVidia GPU available on a PCIe x1 card, the Zotac GeForce GT 710. (And it's actually cheaper than I just spent trying to get USB 3 to DVI!) It uses the NVidia 208 GPU, which is Kepler and so should work OK with either the Native or Web drivers. So my question: will macOS detect and use two separate NVidia GPUs, and allow me to simultaneously use displays connected to both? It should work fine in Windows (at least as long as I'm pairing it with another 700 series GPU), but I have no idea if this is a supported config in a Mac. If anyone knows for sure I'd be most grateful for info. Thanks.
  21. Powerful budget Hackintosh for the living room Components used: MSI B250I Pro Mini-ITX Pentium G4600 Arctic Freezer 33 semi passive CPU cooler ASUS Geforce GT1030 8 GB GSkill DDR4-2133 RAM Samsung 256GB PCIe SSD GMYLE Bluetooth USB Silverstone ITX Case PICO Mini ATX 120W My plan was to build a Hackintosh with the best price-performance-ratio to be used as media player in the living room hooked to the TV. For that use it should be silent, fanless at best. So I decided to go for the Pentium G4600 which offers nearly the same performance as the I3-7100 for a much lower price and the MSI B250I Pro Mini ITX board, the cheapest one with M.2 slots for PCIe and Wifi. The Arctic Freezer 33 is my favourite choice as CPU cooler and I’m using it for all my builds. The fan literally never spins up during usual daily usage. For graphics card the fanless GT1030 is the obvious choice as it delivers the best performance with the lowest possible power consumption. Speaking of power: As the Arctic Freezer is too huge for a standard ATX power supply to fit in an ITX case I go for a PICO Mini ATX adapter that allows up to 120 watts on 16 volts, so a common laptop power supply can be used and of course it runs noiseless as wished. Everything works like a real mac, there are no power management, sleep or wake issues. You can even use your Bluetooth keyboard or mouse to wake it and it will sleep well again. It is not necessary to disable USB power via DSDT. For this build I don’t even bother to compile one. This hasn’t happened for years J Of course the installation needs preparation because the Pentium CPU isn’t supported out of the box. You need to configure your UEFI right and get your config.plist for Clover in order before you can start, otherwise macOS will simply kernel panic. Telling it the other way: there is no post installation action required And for those who are planning to use the Intel HD630 instead of a dedicated graphics card: You can’t. It sounds promising at first to have a macOS supported Intel HD on this chip but it seems as if Intel has just branded it this way and in reality using a different architecture. The best you can achieve is to get into desktop by spoofing a Skylake ID but you won’t get hardware acceleration this way. *For this guide I assume that you already know how to prepare a macOS install drive, how to install Clover bootloader and configure it, mounting your EFI partition and so on. You know: the basic skills. If you don’t you’ll find beginners guides for these tasks on the forum.* *CREDITS: Go to all people involved in the hackintosh community. For this guide I searched and tested for days, finding all the bits needed to complete the installation. If you think one or two of the presented solutions here is based on one of your own unique ideas please feel free to tell me and I will add your name here at once of course.

Other cards may work with AppleALC (tested with GT710 and DVI audio works). Nvidia webdrivers Issues Don’t use the designated webdrivers for 10.13.3! They give you extremely poor OpenCL performance what leads to choppy video playback. Instead use NVDAWebPatcher to patch the webdrivers for 10.13.2 and install them instead. I’m not kidding the 10.13.3 drivers are unusable, this step is mandatory.
  22. Happy New Year all! I am attempting to install Sierra 10.12.6 on a rather odd computer, a Microsoft Surface Studio. It is essentially a laptop with a 4.5K screen strapped on. I have the install done, but the internal (or external? I don't know how it is connected) display and the video card are not matching up once I enable the Web drivers. I've attached two sets of files: one without Web drivers being enabled, and a second with Web drivers. Also attached are the dumped ACPI files in origin, as well as the EDID information from Windows with and without the monitor driver being installed, IOregs, complete Clover folders, and various other items. Let me know if you need something else. Without web drivers enabled the built-in display works, but of course has no acceleration. It allows me to select between two valid resolutions (full 4.5K and 2.25K). With web drivers enabled, I get a black screen (NvidiaFixup, plus manual editing of AGDP already done). I can remote in and I see the card as not recognized, and no valid display. I've flailed about a bit and manually added some device properties, EDID, as well as NVCAP, loaded a different ROM, but all have met with no success. Anyone have any ideas on what to try?

  24. i have ended up getting high sierra installed on my intel DQ670w board. i used a premade high sierra/clover dmg i extracted to a usb flash drive. right now the audio, networking arnt working and the video card i have in the machine an nvidia geforce 1050 gtx ti it works but has very very very choppy/jittery video. i did find some kext files for the network and audio but when i put them in the extensions folder they didnt do anything to add audio or networking. also i have to get the machine to boot from the hard drive rather then having to boot the usb flash drive to get the hard drive to boot and i have to work on the video card stuff as well. i am not to good at this stuff cause usually when i have tried stuff i end up breaking stuff or that stuff doesnt work. i am not all that code or certain tech savy. i am not the brightest. i like things laid out where its all like this is the files and where you get them from this is how u work with them kind of thing. it does agravate me when people just wont lay out stuff as like a dummy book does and makes everything easy. i tried on facebook groups and got as far as to be told what kexts to find but never told where to find them. i did try to look on my own and i did find a few kexts but they where ones that needed alterations to the os to even make them usable. the video kext or driver i was told to install it and do something like change something to true. all i need are the kext files and to make the machine boot from the hard drive rather then complaining it doesnt have an os on the drive or having to use the usb flash drive to make it boot and the video files and to know how to deal with the files and make them work without having to start over with everything and reinstalling stuff
  25. Greetings! I've been wrestling with this build for about a week now and have it near golden, but I am struggling with the Nvidia graphics card; I purchased the GeForce Gtx 1060 6GB SSC because is was recommended as the go-to card by the TonyMacx86 community on all of their Customac builds, but there doesn't seem to be much support for the card itself. I understand that Nvidia web drivers are relatively new and come with their own issues but I am reaching out to see if anyone has managed to squash these bugs.
