  2. Introduction With Whatevergreen.kext we already have a workaround for the AMD GPU wakeup issue which first arose with the release of El Capitan, but as a workaround is just a second class solution for a problem I decided to trace back the reason for the issue to it's origin and this post is the result of my research. As I used a R9 270X to do my research, which is the only AMD GPU I have, my patch has only been verified to work properly with this chip but according to the information sources I used, I have no reason to believe it won't work on other AMD GPU's too. In case there is still some uncertainty left in a particular point, I will mention this explicitly. Materials Used The Linux kernel sources of the Radeon driver in order to get a better understanding of the GPU's internals: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon?h=next-20171013 A copy of the ACPI 6.0 specs in order to find out how to dump the chip's control register space. A disassembler, e.g. objdump in Terminal or the trial version of Hopper Disassembler. What I Did As it's been a well known fact that wakeup with AMD GPUs still works with El Capitan and Sierra provided you select the IGPU as primary GPU enabled CSM and use Legacy VBIOS of the AMD GPU in BIOS setup. I was wondering what is different with UEFI VBIOS and decided to I create dumps of the GPU's control register space while using Legacy VBIOS with CSM enabled and while using UEFI VBIOS with CSM disabled in order to find out. Comparing the register space contents it became obvious where the root of the problem lies and how it can be fixed with a DSDT patch. Technical Background Using Legacy VBIOS only the primary GPU is initialized by the VBIOS, i.e. only the IGPU is initialized while the AMD GPU is left untouched. When OS X boots up the framebuffer controller kext will find the AMD GPU in vanilla state, initialize it properly and wakeup will work as expected. That's also the reason why you have to blind boot in this configuration. Using UEFI VBIOS the AMD GPU will be initialized too, provided it has a display connected to one of it's ports. You'll see the BIOS splash screen and will be able to access the BIOS settings but unfortunately macOS's framebuffer controller kext will notice that the GPU has already been initialized and skips the basic setup so that the configuration made by the VBIOS will be used and this is the point where things start to go wrong because this configuration seems to be broken causing wakeup to fail. First of all you have to locate the AMD GPU in your DSDT. In my case it can be found at _SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP but it needs to be renamed to GFX0 for AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext (AGDP) to work properly. This can be done manually or using a Clover patch (this is what I did) and I assume that this problem has been already solved before. The reason why I mention it explicitly here, is that you should be aware of it and don't get confused when your AMD GPU has a different name in the DSDT than in IORegistry. Second, we need to get access to the GPU's control register space. According to the Linux sources, PCI Base Address Register 2 (BAR2) is used to address the control register space on Radeon HD5000, HD6000 and HD7000 GPUs. It's a 64bit base address register but newer GPUs (BONAIRE and above, i.e. Radeon HD8000 and HD9xxx) are different as the use BAR5 instead of BAR2. Unlike BAR2, BAR5 is a 32bit base address register. On my R9 270X (PITCAIRN) BAR5 is zero so that I decided to use this as an indication to use BAR2 but I must confess that I haven't checked if it works for all supported GPUs too. In case my patch doesn't work for you, be aware that this might be a pitfall! The Radeon driver's source code tells us that the first display controller engine's registers can be found starting at offset 0x6800. It also tells us a lot about the meaning of the register contents. Using Legacy VBIOS my R9 270X's display controller engine's registers are still at their default values when macOS boots: 00006800 01 00 00 00 08 80 00 0a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006810 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006820 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006830 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006840 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006850 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006860 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006870 00 00 00 00 08 80 00 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006880 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006890 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068b0 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |........... ... | 000068c0 00 00 00 20 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |... ....... ... | 000068d0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 |... ..... ......| 000068e0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 |... ......... ..| 000068f0 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 |..... ......... | With UEFI VBIOS the display controller engine's registers look quite different. Using the Linux driver sources you can easily make sense out of these values and will discover that I've got a 4K display connected to my R9 270X which is configured to it's native resolution using 32 bits per pixel. 00006800 01 00 00 00 0a 80 00 0a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006810 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0f 00 00 f4 00 00 00 |................| 00006820 f4 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006830 00 00 00 00 00 0f 00 00 70 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 |........p.......| 00006840 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006850 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006860 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006870 00 00 00 00 08 80 00 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006880 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 00006890 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 |................| 000068b0 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |........... ... | 000068c0 00 00 00 20 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 20 |... ....... ... | 000068d0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 |... ..... ......| 000068e0 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 |... ......... ..| 000068f0 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 |..... ......... | The rest was just a little bit of laborious work and trial and error, comparing register contents, understanding their meanings and see what happens when you reset these registers to their default values. If you try to play around with your GPU's control registers a little bit more, be prepared to get a garbled screen for a few seconds. After all I've managed to create a DSDT patch which fixes the wrong registers while preserving screen output during boot and, most important, solves the wakeup issue. The Patch Putting things together I created a DSDT patch to fix the incorrectly initialized registers. With this patch applied, I now have working wakeup with my R9 270X under Sierra (10.12.6) using UEFI VBIOS with CSM disabled in UEFI setup. No kext patches or additional kexts are needed anymore for sleep/wake to work properly with my R9 270X anymore. I can see the BIOS splash screen on my display and can access UEFI setup but the best of all is that there hasn't been a single wakeup issue since I applied this patch.

I'm willing to share all my information in order support further research. Below you can find the register dumps I created attached to this post. FAQ Do I still have to select the IGPU as the primary display? No. Although I haven't tried this on my own, user chh1 confirmed that this is no longer required when using the patch (please see http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328549-tracing-back-the-amd-gpu-wakeup-issue-to-its-origin/?do=findComment&comment=2519884). Nevertheless I still recommend to select the IGPU as primary as there is absolutely no reason not to do so, in particular as the IGPU will be unusable for multimedia acceleration on Haswell based systems when it's not the primary one (IGPU's dev id is different when it's not the primary one). ​When I boot into macOS I always end up with a black screen. Does your patch solve this problem too? No, it doesn't. This patch solves the wakeup issue, nothin more and nothing less. The black screen after boot is either the result of a connector problem (please create a connector patch for your graphics card using the well-known methods) or the result of a problem with AGPM as certain system definitions (in particular recent iMacs) select special configurations for graphics power management. In order to achieve proper operation of AGPM it is crucial that your GPUs have correct names in the DSDT matching those listed in the AGPM configuration for the system definition (IGPU for the Intel GPU and GFX0 for the AMD GPU on iMac15,1, iMac17,1 and iMac18,x). You may patch your DSDT manually or use a Clover DSDT-patch to fix the device names. Credits vit9696 for developing Whatevergreen.kext and pointing me to the right direction.

  8. I've just installed High Sierra as a new install under VMware Wkstn 12.5.7 and installed VM Tools but it's not mounting any USB HDDs that I plug in. USB flash drives are mounted OK. The USB HDD is recognised as a device (see External USB 3.0 in the attached screenshot) but Disk Utility doesn't see it. I've closed and re-opened DU a number of times. I've tried VMware Wkstn 14.0.0 and the latest VM tools but still doesn't mount. Has anyone had a similar issue or now what the problem may be? thanks Webby

Edit: Update for GM post #9 What we need for this: Atom.app or Atom Beta.App Flat Package Editor.app (from /Developer/Applications/Utilities/PackageMaker.app/Contents/Resources/) Download Install 10.12 Developer Preview.app In addition: (All files are intended for MacPro3,1, possibly you have a grudge here your BoardID) Archiv1.zip Archiv2.zip USB flash drive creation ( 8GB / Created flash drive with the BaseSystem.dmg method! does not work with the createinstallmedia method! ): 1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg from the InstallShield Developer 10.12 Preview.app out of your Program Files folder with the disk utility on the USB flash drive 2. Delete the simlink packages under "/Volumes/USB/System/Installation/" 3. Copy the original package folder from the Install 10.12 Developer Preview.app to "/Volumes/USB/System/Installation/" 3.1 optional: install Clover (only for Hackintosh and this Method) 4. Replace the InstallableMachines.plist in /Volumes/USB/System/Installation/Packages/ with from Archiv1.zip 5. Replace the PlatformSupport.plist in /Volumes/USB/System/Library/Core Services/ with from Archiv1.zip 6. Copy the OSInstall.mpkg from /Volumes/USB/System/Installation/Packages/ to the desktop 7. Open this by right-clicking the Flat Package Editor 8. Delete the file "Distribution" and replace with file from Archiv1.zip (Previously open possibly this file with Atom.app and edit your BoardID after) 9. Replace now the OSInstall.mpkg in /Volumes/USB/System/Installation/Packages/ with the file from the desktop 10. Now you can start, the Mac reboots with pinned Alt key and select your USB flash drive. Make here the installation on a free selected by you partition. The installation starts, then the computer reboots. 11. While it is booting Alt hold, so it will not boot into fresh Sierra. Instead, choose your example Capitan and ride high order. 12. Go here now in the Finder to the fresh Sierra HDD in /Volumes/Sierra/System/Library/Core Services/ and replacing there the file "PlatformSupport.plist" from the Archiv2.zip 13. That's it, do restart in the fresh Sierra and let the installation run through to the end.

    Kernel Panic after app updates

    1st I installed High Sierra on a secondary SATA II SSD and to my surprise I was able to get to it's desktop. I went back and forth from Sierra to High Sierra several times via the UEFI. Then I decided to update the apps on the Sierra drive (M.2) and upon reboot it gave me a Kernel Panic. I tried a few things in the Clover Boot Manager to no avail and for reasons unbeknownst to me, the machine was not able to see any files in Time Machine to Restore. Should I spend time to troubleshoot Sierra or should I use the USB Thumb drive to clean install High Sierra? I'm on the Internet via the High Sierra SSD. Update: I'm still unable to install on the M.2 drive. If I select that boot drive in the UEFI I get to Clover Boot Manager but there is no drive to choose. If I select the SATA II SSD drive in the UEFI I get to see the M.2 in Clover Boot Manager but the M.2 tells me "unable to..." and there's a restart button. I'm able to get to the desktop on the SATA II drive. It's very slow.
  14. Hey guys, This is a tutorial on how to fix (or at least try to fix) the second stage boot, when you're having these issues: missing logo and loading bar being displayed on the bottom left corner of the screen. Might or might not work for other issues. So proceed with caution. This is an issue that I experienced starting with early stages of development in Yosemite. Still continued in El Capitan. So this thread is primarily for these two versions of Mac OS X. Not sure it will work on earlier versions, cause I never tried it. So far it worked in Yosemite, El Capitan and Sierra. Please, note that I did not test this on all video cards. So it might or might not work, depending on that. Don't take this as a final solution for everything. Also, I'm pretty sure this won't work with iGPUs. So I would strongly suggest to look around for solutions if that's your case. This tutorial is not for multiple display setups! Please, don't use it for that! Especially not in iGPU + dedicated GPU combos. Known issue: if you're using the auto-login feature, try to disable it and use the regular login screen. Otherwise you won't get the second stage boot (confirmed as fixed in Sierra). This tutorial would have not been possible without the help and insight of: Pike R. Alpha cecekpawon Mirone Riley Freeman So all the credit goes to them. I just put this together based on my successes and failures. Succesfully tested with: NVidia cards: GeForce 210 GT 640 GTX 650 GTX 660 GTX 670 Superclocked+ 4GB - works partially (ok for 1080p, with CSM disabled, but no second stage in higher resolutions) GTX 750 Ti - works partially (ok for 1080p, but no Apple logo for second stage in higher resolutions) GTX 760 GTX 780 GTX 960 GTX 970 - works partially (ok for 1080p, and 1440p with CSM disabled, but no second stage in higher resolutions) ATI cards: Sapphire Toxic R9 270X Might work on other graphic cards, as well. But these are the ones that worked so far. Please, share if you got good results with another video card. Also, the same thing can be achieved by modding your DSDT. Unfortunately this thread does not make the object of that method, nor am I able to help you with that, since I really have no idea how to mod a DSDT, so far. Also, to be honest, this method seems a bit easier. Nonetheless, try this at your own risk! I'm not responsible for any damage that you might cause to your computer/components etc. Also, please, note that this tutorial is not perfect. I'm doing my best to make it as easy to understand as possible. Also, I'm opened to suggestions and I'm doing my best to improve this in the future. Still, it's not perfect. So keep that in mind. Suggestions are appreciated though. Please, note that, if you've got a video card with GOP UEFI Bios, you most likely don't need this tutorial in the first place. All you need is to disable CSM in BIOS (motherboard dependent). Note that, by doing this, only GPT drives will be loaded. So if you've got Windows installed on another drive, for example, you won't be able to select it anymore, if it's installed in "legacy" mode. With that being said, let's get to work. Prerequisites: Mandatory: a computer running Mac OS X Yosemite or newer Clover bootloader (changes are gonna be saved to the config.plist file) IORegistryExplorer v 2.1 (attached) gfxutil (attached) gfx_hex (attached) - script credit to cecekpawon Optional: Sublime Text Editor Clover Configurator a Windows PC for reading the graphic card's VBios version. So far, I couldn't find a way to do it from OS X. But if you know how to do it, please, share. I'll update this accordingly. An alternative (though not really the same thing) is this. an USB installer might come in handy, so keep one close by. Extra: If you want to try the modded Bootx64.efi (rev 3279), thanks to cecekpawon, featuring an option to easily enable/disable string injection in Clover (in case you're stuck outside your OS, and don't have a USB drive or something else to boot from), click here to get it. Please, note that this revision might not work with newer versions of OS X/macOS. You will need to replace the one in your EFI/EFI/CLOVER folder. If you want to revert to the previous one, you can either reinstall Clover, or make a backup of your current one before replacing it. I would recommend creating a single folder with all the necessary files and tools and putting it on your Desktop, just to have all the needed things in one place. Note: If you use a custom SSDT/DSDT, I would try first without it, and using Clover's patches instead, so that you minimize the risk for failure due to custom DSDTs. I don't use a custom DSDT, didn't test in collaboration with a custom DSDT, so I don't know if it will work. If you wanna try it this way, I would love to know your results. What to do: Step 1 (establishing the port): Open up your IOreg file (or just open IORegistryExplorer if you don't want to save it as a separate file), and search for "display". You should see something like this: Now, depending on your card, you might have more or less ports. The important thing is to note the one that has the AppleDisplay attached to it. In this example, the second port (B@1) is the one in use. So that's the one we need to set as default. Please, note that they start at 0, so first port is A@0, the second one is B@1 and so on so forth. Step 2 (extracting device-properties.hex): Open up a terminal window, navigate to the desktop folder you're using, and do this (make sure gfxutil is present into that folder): ioreg -lw0 -p IODeviceTree -n efi -r -x | grep device-properties | sed 's/.*<//;s/>.*//;' > "device-properties.hex" && ./gfxutil -s -n -i hex -o xml "device-properties.hex" "device-properties.xml" This will extract two new files into that folder: device-properties.hex and device-properties.xml Step 3 (modding the device-properties.xml): Open up the xml file using any text editor (I'm gonna use Sublime here) and ADD the number of ports you need for your card (the same number of ports, with the same name as in the IOreg) and the rest of the information, as described in the example below (use the attached xml as reference): Don't forget that the first port is port 0! In this example, we're using an MSi GTX 650 OC with 2GB of RAM, which has 3 ports, and we want to set as default port #2 (B@1). Attached you can find my device-properties.xml file, if you wanna use it as reference. The first section will set port B@1 as default. Change this according to your case. <!-- Primary display --> <key>@1,AAPL,boot-display</key> <string>0x00000001</string> Whereas on the bottom you can see regular values. Here we can set the amount of VRAM, the name of the card and the VBios version. <key>VRAM,totalMB</key> <string>0x00000800</string> // for 2048 MB or 2 GB of RAM <key>device_type</key> <string>NVDA,Parent</string> <key>model</key> <string>MSi GeForce GTX 650</string> // Name of your card <key>rom-revision</key> <string>80.07.35.00.04</string> //VBIOS version In my experience, these values are rather cosmetic than anything else. For an accurate version of your VBios, you can use either the Nvidia driver on Windows, or any hardware information software like GPU-Z, aida64 or nvflash. Here's a little table with hex values for different amounts of RAM. If you need other values than the ones specified in this table, please, ask. Also, if you spot a mistake, let me know so I can correct it. Amount of memory Hex value 128 MB 0x00000080 256 MB 0x00000100 512 MB 0x00000200 1024 MB (1 GB) 0x00000400 2048 MB (2 GB) 0x00000800 3072 MB (3 GB) 0x00000C00 4096 MB (4 GB) 0x00001000 5120 MB (5 GB) 0x00001400 6144 MB (6 GB) 0x00001800 7168 MB (7 GB) 0x00001C00 8192 MB (8 GB) 0x00002000 9216 MB (9 GB) 0x00002400 10240 MB (10 GB) 0x00002800 11264 MB (11 GB) 0x00002C00 12288 MB (12 GB) 0x00003000 13312 MB (13 GB) 0x00003400 14336 MB (14 GB) 0x00003800 15360 MB (15 GB) 0x00003C00 16384 MB (16 GB) 0x00004000 Once we're done modding, we're gonna save the changes and convert the xml file back into hex, using this command: ./gfxutil -i xml -o hex device-properties.xml device-properties.hex Step 4 (reading the modded hex): Unpack gfx_hex (attached) file into your working directory and double click to run it. It should output the content of your modded hex into a terminal window, and it should look something like this: Select and copy that code. After that, open up Clover Configurator and paste that hex code in Devices -> Properties section (see below) and check the box for Inject. You can also add this manually into the config.plist file, if that's more of your thing. Step 5 (setting up final arrangements): We're almost done. But, if your experience is the same as mine, at this point you only got the loading bar back centered. Which, of course is a step forward. But we're not quite there yet. So, to add the logo as well, we will check the boxes for Patch VBios and Inject EDID in Clover Configurator (Graphics section). You can inject your own EDID if you have one. Though, in my experience, Clover does a really good job in adding the correct one itself. So you don't really need to add a custom EDID. Just to use Clover's InjectEDID feature. Also, in my experience, you don't need CsmVideoDrv.efi for this to work. And I've got pretty similar results with and without it. So, if you have issues with it, you can try without it, and vice-versa. When it's all done, save the changes to your config. Now, I would highly recommend you to make a backup of your current config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover/config.plist anywhere you want. You might need it later. When that's done too, replace the config.plist in your Clover folder with the one you just modded, and restart. Keep your fingers crossed (toes too). And hope for the best. If everything ok, you should have a pretty close to perfect second stage boot. If not, you might have nothing or an unbootable system. To fix this, boot from your USB installer, or use boot flag nv_disable=1 (for Nvidia cards), upon booting, and revert the changes. Or, if you already know where is the problem, fix that and restart. That's it. Please, let me know if it worked for you. gfx_hex.zip IORegistryExplorer.app.zip gfxutil.zip device-properties.xml

  19. This thread is a walkthrough on how to install Sierra. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS For a list of credits/resources which helped influenced the making of this guide, please refer to my 10.11.0 guide here. As of 11/30/2016, I will no longer provide anymore support regarding the installation of OS X/macOS on this motherboard. I am in the process of selling this PC. Meanwhile, there are a few quirks I want to resolve which I feel should be included in this guide such as 1) creating an DSDT/editing the SSDT to enable HDMI audio from both the GPU/CPU, 2) implementing proper sleep, and 3) a patch to remove audio distortion which occurs while using codec ALC887 on this motherboard, but due to time constraints I haven't gotten around to doing so yet. I would hope that anyone who has benefited from my guide would follow in my footsteps and take up the mantle and expand on this guide. If you are interested let me know. I have already laid down the foundation so all you have to do is carry on the legacy and pick up where I left off. Now since I have gotten that out of the way, let's get started: • MY SPECS: 1. Intel Pentium Processor G4500 2. ASUS Z170M-PLUS Micro ATX Motherboard 3. Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 512GB SSD 4. Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 5. HGST Travelstar 7K1000 1TB 2.5" 7200RPM HDD 6. Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM HDD ST3000DM001 7. LEPA AquaChanger 240 Liquid CPU Cooler 8. Corsair Carbide 88R Mid-Tower Case 9. LG Electronics 14x SATA Blu-ray Rewriter 10. PNY GTX 960 XLR8 4GB 11. EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G1 750W PSU • WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 1. macOS 10.12 Sierra [from Mac App Store] 2. A computer running an Intel Processor 3. Access to OS X on VMWare (for Windows), Mac, or Hackintosh 4. 1x supported graphics card 5. Clover v2.3k r3763 and up 6. A USB flash drive at least 8 GB 7. Update your system with the latest BIOS • STEP 1: BIOS SETTINGS 1. Start off by entering the BIOS and accessing Advanced Mode. Go to Exit to select 'Load Optimized Defaults'. 2. Go to Boot and disable 'Fast Boot' and go to CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to enable 'Launch CSM'. 3. Back out to Boot and scroll down to Secure Boot and access Key Management to disable 'Secure Boot State'. In order to do so you must clear any installed keys [delete each keys]. a. Access Secure Boot again and set OS Type to 'Other OS'. 4. Scroll down to Hard Drive BBS Priorities to set boot sequence of the available hard disks. 5. Go to Advanced → System Agent (SA) Configuration and disable 'VT-d'. 6. Scroll down to access Graphics Configuration and set 'Primary Display' to PCIE and disable 'iGPU Multi-Monitor'. 7. Back out to Advanced and scroll down to access APM Configuration → 'ErP Ready' and disable it [equates to "S3 only, Suspend to Ram"]; the rest of the options should be disabled by default. 8. Go to Advanced → CPU Configuration and disable 'Intel Virtualization Technology'. 9. Scroll down to CPU Power Management Configuration to disable 'CFG lock'. 10. Go to Advanced → Onboard Devices Configuration and turn off 'Serial Port Configuration' and 'Parallel Port Configuration'. 11. Go to Advanced → USB Configuration and enable 'XHCI Hand-off'. 12. [Optional] Go to Ai Tweaker → Scroll down to 'DRAM Frequency' and set it to the specified frequency of your memory. 13. [Optional] Go to Tool → ASUS Overclocking Profile to save your BIOS settings profile [to a USB stick]. 14. Go to Exit, 'Save Changes & Reset'. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF SIERRA 10.12 1. Clover and the macOS installer are placed on separate partitions on the USB stick. This guide will use 'diskutil list' in Terminal instead of Disk Utility to format the USB with GPT partitioning for Clover UEFI support. 2. You must determine its disk identifier before you can partition the USB. Plug the USB stick into a Mac (or Hackintosh), run Terminal and type 'diskutil list'. The following screenshot will serve as a reference: As you can see the the USB stick’s identifier is /dev/disk4. 3. Type the following entry into Terminal to format the USB stick (two partitions, via GPT): diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk4 1 GPT HFS+J "OS X" R During the process the following occurred: /dev/disk4 GPT partitioning initiated by default EFI was automatically created remainder "OS X", HFS+J is partitioned 4. It resulted in the following screenshot: Close Terminal 5. We need to download and install the latest version of Clover (here) on the USB stick. a. Run the pkg, "Change Install Location" by selecting "OS X" (partition name) as the target of the install. Use the following settings below: Make sure that it shows "Installation Complete." NOTE: When installing to HDD select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and/or "Install all RC scripts on all other boot volumes" and "Install Clover Preference Pane". 6. You must copy your kexts to the EFI/ Clover folder. You can use EFI Mounter v1.2.3 when necessary to mount the EFI partition, just use "diskutil list" first to ensure you chose the right one for the USB stick. a. Remove EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 leaving just 'Other'. Create a folder titled '10.12'. b. Copy the required kexts FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement 1.0.0d2, VoodooPS2Controller.kext, and your ethernet kext (Intel I219-V) IntelMausiEthernet-V2.2.0 or AppleIntelE1000e 3.3.1 to the following directory: /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. NOTE: If you are having trouble getting Ethernet to work you can also try copying IONetworkingFamily.kext from S/L/E to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12 with your networking kext. 7. We must apply the following mandatory patches: NOTE: As of 10.11.4, the APIC Fix is not necessary. a. HaltEnabler. It works as OpenHaltRestart, clearing SLP_SMI_EN at start of macOS system. Helps prevent constant reboot loop after installing macOS on this motherboard. <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>HaltEnabler</key> <true/> b. FakeCPUID patch. Since the Pentium is not supported in 10.12, the following CPUID will convert it into an Ivy Bridge CPU. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>FakeCPUID</key> <string>0x0306A0</string> <key>KextsToPatch</key> </dict> or [Lynnfield] <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>FakeCPUID</key> <string>0x0106E0</string> <key>KextsToPatch</key> </dict> c. USB patch. It is required to raise the port limit in order to boot the USB installer. Otherwise garbled text with the message "Still waiting for root device" and a circle with a slash in the middle will appear onscreen. This process involves installing USBInjectAll.kext as well. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series) 10.12</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////Gw==</data> </dict> </array> Be sure to copy USBInjectAll.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. d. SMBIOS. With the config file still opened in your text/plist editor, scroll down to SMBIOS section to add the following SMBIOS system definition: <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string> iMac14,2</string> <key>Trust</key> <false/> </dict> NOTE: Macmini6,2, iMac13,2 and iMac13,1 support speedstep. You can also do this using Clover Configurator: In the SMBIOS section, click the magic wand to select a SMBIOS relevant to your hardware (e.g. iMac14,2) – and close the screen and File/Save. e. GUI. Here you indicate the theme you want to use that you installed by entering the title in the string. I chose to use "random" as shown below: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>DoubleClick</key> <integer>500</integer> <key>Enabled</key> <true/> <key>Mirror</key> <false/> <key>Speed</key> <integer>8</integer> </dict> <key>Scan</key> <true/> <key>Theme</key> <string>random</string> </dict> f. Boot Flag. It is necessary to use "-v" to monitor if any problems arise. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v</string> </dict> g. NVIDIA graphics cards especially 'Maxwell' currently lack support natively in macOS. To correct this problem, it requires System Parameter/NvidiaWeb entry. It must be disabled during installation by adding this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <false/> </dict> h. SIP. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) (reference sources 1, 2, & 3) in 10.12 which restricts users from modifying system folders/files, and as a result it locks down system folders and files against hacks and root attacks, making the system safer. However, SIP must be disabled in order to install anything (i.e., kexts) into protected system folders. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x3</string> </dict> i. Audio Fix. This Skylake board comes with a Realtek ALC887 audio chip. Realtek onboard audio device has been changed in ACPI to 'HDAS'. In order to use AppleALC/CloverALC (discussed further in this guide), you must add the following patch in the config.plist: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>Patches</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Rename HDAS to HDEF</string> <key>Find</key> <data> SERBUw== </data> <key>Replace</key> <data> SERFRg== </data> </dict> </array> 8. Preparing OS X partition. Download macOS v10.12.0 Sierra [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" will be in /Applications. a. Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" → Show Package Contents → Contents → ShareSupport → Double click to mount "InstallESD.dmg". b. Once "OS X Install ESD" appears, use ShowHiddenFiles to show hidden files. c. Now you will see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... NOTE: The version of Disk Utility found in El Capitan has been stripped down of its most essential features to proceed with the following instructions. Your next best option is to use a pre-modified version of the old Disk Utility. After downloading it, extract and copy it to the Desktop and type the following line in Terminal to take ownership, enabling the app to run: sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Desktop/Disk\ Utility.app d. Open Disk Utility. Select and highlight the volume "OS X Base System", click "Restore" at the top-right, drag the volume into "Source" field, and drag the USB [OS X] partition (you already created) to the "Destination" field where you will restore the image: click the "Restore" button then "Erase"... e. After the process is complete, you'll now have (2) "OS X Base System" present in Finder. Eject the image "BaseSystem.dmg" and close Disk Utility. f. On the remaining volume "OS X Base System" (USB stick), go to System/Installation and delete Packages symlink. g. Open "OS X Install ESD" in a new Finder window, and copy the Packages folder to System/Installation folder inside "OS X Base System". h. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist, BaseSystem.dmg, AppleDiagnostics.chunklist, and AppleDiagnostics.dmg from "OS X Install ESD" and copy it to the volume root. i. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17+ to extract "kernel" from "OS X Install ESD/Packages/Essential.pkg [/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. j. Delete following kexts from System/Library/Extensions/: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext. k. Use ShowHiddenFiles to hide the hidden files, and quit the application. l. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install Sierra on the hard disk of choice. m. Once installer is finished, it will automatically restart the system. n. Now reboot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed Sierra at the boot menu screen and use boot flag nv_disable=1 to log in. [NOTE: If you experience reboot loops, simply reset CMOS and reapply the ACHI settings back into the BIOS, save and exit.] • STEP 3: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the macOS Welcome screen. a. Select your country then click "right arrow" to go to the next screen. b. Select "My computer does not connect to the Internet." c. Select "Don’t transfer any information now." d. Do not "Enable Location Services on this Mac" e. Agree to "Terms and Conditions." f. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. g. Confirm "Diagnostics & Usage" h. Wait a moment for the macOS desktop to load. i. When prompted to back up any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. macOS Sierra no longer allows unsigned apps to run that did not come the App Store or identified developer. You can re-enable this function by running the following in Terminal: sudo spctl --master-disable Go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and disable GateKeeper to allow installation of software by unidentified developers. 2. Mount the EFI partition of the USB stick with EFI Mounter v1.2.3 and copy the 'EFI' folder to the EFI partition of Sierra boot disk. 3. Install Clover v2.3k on the Sierra install HDD partition you plan to boot from. In addition to the settings configured earlier, select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and "Install Clover Preference Pane" when installing to the HDD. Installing RC scripts enables nvram variables required for iCloud and other services. It processes logs that are located in /Library/Logs/CloverEFI. You can also type bdmesg > Desktop/boot.txt in Terminal to get them manually. 4. Edit the config.plist from your boot disk in EFI/CLOVER/ by adding the following <dict> entries: a. New Method for Enabling NVIDIA Web Drivers. Boot flag nvda_drv=1 no longer works in config.plist to enable Web Drivers. A new setting under System Parameter in Clover called "NvidiaWeb" has been updated to fulfill this instead. <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary. b. Hide UEFI partitions. To hide internal UEFI (i.e., "Boot Windows from Recovery", "Boot Windows from EFI") you have to use Scan/Legacy=false: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Scan</key> <dict> <key>Legacy</key> <false/> </dict> c. Designate name of boot menu entries (Renaming Mac/Windows). In the Clover bootloader menu you will notice all EFI Windows partitions labeled "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI [or SYSTEM]". The Windows partition is called EFI but there's also a Mac partition called EFI which is hidden by default in the Clover boot menu so it's a nonfactor. The volume names are what Clover shows by default. In order to change what the Clover boot menu shows your volume name to be you will have to specify its details under GUI/Custom/Entries section in your config.plist. There are 3 <key> tags necessary to edit in this section: Volume, FullTitle, and Type. You can refer to my personal settings below for help. E.g., in my config.plist, my macOS volume is called "SIERRA" because that's what I named the partition I installed macOS on. It can also be seen as a bootloader screen entry as "Boot Mac OS X from XXXXXXXX" where XXXXXXXX is the volume name. "FullTitle" is the name you want the entry to say, i.e.: macOS 10.12 Sierra. "Type" is where you indicate what type of OS it is, i.e.: OSX (or Windows). Tags such as "Hidden" and "Disabled" are self-explanatory, while the "NoCaches" tag designates whether you want to boot without caches. NOTE: Adding "InjectKexts" causes infinite loading on the Apple logo screen. NOTE: Although you’re able to indicate if the "VolumeType" you are using is Internal, External, Optical or FireWire, I have found through tests that after adding the "VolumeType" tag for the macOS volume in the config.plist followed by restarting my system, it would initiate a constant reboot loop, making my system incapable POSTing and requiring a CMOS reset to fix: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Custom</key> <dict> <key>Entries</key> <array> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>EFI</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 10</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>SIERRA</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>macOS 10.12 Sierra</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>InjectKexts</key> <false/> <key>NoCaches</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>OSX</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> </array> </dict> 5. Remove Recovery partition. Deleting and merging a partition with 'diskutil' from the command line is the most precise method to remove the partition since it targets the recovery disk directly and merges it with the full Sierra partition. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list This will print out your drives partition scheme and look something like this: Look for "Recovery HD" and see which identifier it is uses. In this screenshot it’s disk2s4. To remove that partition we use the following command (you can also use the volume name): diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ Blank /dev/disk2s4 The partition will be erased. You’ll now have a blank partition sitting around, so you’ll want to merge that with your other Sierra partition: diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ SIERRA disk2s3 disk2s4 This will merge the two partitions, with disk2s3 absorbing the space from disk2s4 and expanding, it causes data loss so don’t expect this to preserve anything. 6. NVIDIA graphics cards 'Maxwell'+ currently lack native support in macOS 10.12 so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 kernel flag. a. Download and install NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.05f01 to enable NVIDIA Graphics Cards because they won't work OOB without them. NOTE: Remember to go to the NVIDIA Driver Manager menu bar at the top, change the settings to use Web drivers. Changes will take effect after restart. 7. Reboot using the USB installer and choose the Sierra install drive. 8. Download CUDA 7.5.30 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.12 support and install. 9. [OPTION 1] Install AppleALC to enable native audio by injecting the layout id supported for ALC887 through dynamic patching without modifying any kexts. Audio will no longer be affected after each macOS update and SIP can remain enabled. More details here. NOTE: AppleHDA must be native, original and unpatched. a. Mount EFI partition and add the following entry under Devices/Audio in the config.plist to inject working layout id 11 (or 13 or 1). <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>11</integer> </dict> b. Download the latest version of AppleALC (v1.0.16) and copy it to CLOVER/kexts/10.12. NOTE: Rebuild kext cache if you have removed a modded AppleHDA to replace it with a native one by using Kext Utility or 'force rebuild cache' in Terminal: sudo –s sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions 10. [OPTION 2] Install the following patch associated with Realtek ALC887 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda): a. Mount EFI partition, verify "Disable SIP" entry CsrActiveConfig=0x3 is in config.plist. b. Download audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip and extract "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command". c. No edits made to any native AppleHDA.kext file, 2-4 files added to Resources folder. NOTE: There may be noticeable pops before starting playback which is caused by OS X putting the audio codec to sleep. Disable AFGLowPowerState in config.plist with following <dict> entry: <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> </dict> <key>AFGLowPowerState</key> <false/> </dict> If popping is still exists after using the method above, try using antipop. NOTE: There may be noticeable distortion after around 2 minutes of audio playback. Update to the latest version of Clover and add UseARTFrequency=false entry in the config.plist: <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>UseARTFrequency</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> 11. Create a DSDT??? (More to come later) 12. [OPTION 1] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download Pike's ssdtPRGen.sh script which should auto-copy into your home directory, 'Volumes/Users/<username>' folder. Open Terminal and type the following: curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh b. Next, set the execute/search bits: chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh c. Run ssdtPRGen.sh script for first time without any arguments and let it download all the data that you need: ./ssdtPRGen.sh d. The Skylake.cfg with Pentium information should have already downloaded. e. Once finished you will have the ssdt.aml on the ~/library/ssdtPRGen/. Move it to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. NOTE: If you come across issues try the following: ○ Use Terminal to ensure Skylake.cfg is in the 'Data' folder by typing: open ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data ○ You can remove any previously generated and downloaded script file by typing: sudo rm -R ~/Library/ssdtPRGen ○ You can rerun another freshly downloaded ssdtPRGen.sh script with your processor type: ./ssdtPRGen.sh ○ For additional help see also: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -help 13. [OPTION 2] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download the Pike’s script v14.1 (modified for i-core processors) and put it on your desktop. Use it only for the PC it is running from. The script reads some information specific about your CPU and its number of cores. b. Open Terminal and type "sudo" then leave a space and drag the script file into the Terminal window then leave a space and type in the Turbo Speed (Maximum Turbo Frequency) for your processor and then press enter. e.g., Intel Pentium G4500 type code: sudo /Users/"YourUsername"/Desktop/ssdtPRGen.sh -TURBO 3500 Type your password when prompted and press Enter. c. Ignore the following "Error: Unknown processor model ..." since the CPU is unsupported. d. A decompiled file called SSDT.aml will generate in a hidden folder "tmp". Type "open /tmp" (no quotations) to reveal its location. e. Mount EFI using EFI Mounter v1.2.3 and place SSDT.aml into /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ folder. 14. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Mount the EFI partition to copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12 folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.21.1412 Binaries (with FakeSMC): Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. 15. Install iStat Pro 4.92 r2, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. • STEP 5: Updating to 10.12.1 1. Download and install macOS Sierra 10.12.1 Update and reboot with -x (safe mode). 2. After restarting, accept the popup window that prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.15f03 to proceed. 3. Download CUDA 8.0.46 drivers needed for 10.12.1 support from NVIDIA. 4. Download CUDA 8.0.51 drivers needed for 10.12.1 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot. 5. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. 6. It seems as though the issue regarding audio distortion no longer presents itself after updating to 10.12.1. • OPTIONAL: Fixing Time Sync issue with macOS/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7, 8 & 10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to macOS, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time. NOTE: Avoid changing the time in macOS if you are running a multi-boot system. It can lead to a constant reboot loop, making your system incapable POSTing, and forcing the user to do a CMOS reset to recover. You only have to modify the time in the BIOS and in Windows followed by enabling the setting to sync the clock with online time. config-WORKING for G4500 boot.plist-10.12.zip

  21. Well I've past last days reading, understanding and trying to implement all the things mentioned in the guides from different forums, mainly the ones written by RehabMan. This is my first Hackintosh experience and I'm pretty happy with the results I got. Software and modifications developed by the people in the scene is awesome.

  22. I have the USB ports that are messy. It's even hard to explain what happens as it's not linear. At second wake from sleep USBs keyboard and mouse become unusable. If they're plugged on USB3 instead at second wake from sleep the PC...reboots itself. When I reboot at times USB keyb and mouse are not recognised. Front panel USB3 don't work. USB bluetooth after wake from sleep works really bad. Some USB3 drives get stuck while copying forcing a reboot. On Tonymac (sorry) some guy called pastrychef (moderator) tells the story of his build and how he fixed USB. He says Mr RehabMan in person suggests to create a custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext Now, being my machine AMD, some of what they suggest to do becomes difficult to process. All in all they say to forget your USBs are working fine unless: 1 you're lucky, 2 you fix them properly. I'm not lucky. Are there permanent fixes because I need sleep to work on my machine and I have all these troubles on USB that affect stability. Thanks all for your help.
  23. Hello. I have a Dell T5610 (Dual Xeon, C602 chipset with Nvidia NV310 graphics card) running Yosemite 10.10.5 with Clover bootloader. This morning, I backed up the OS drive to another one and then attempted to upgrade to Sierra 10.12.6. I copied all the (existing) kexts to the correct places in EFI/CLOVER/Kexts (ie from the 10.10 to the 10.12 directory) using clover configurator to mount the EFI and ran the install. Once of the kexts is USBInjectAll.kext. (I tried clover with and without USB inject flag set and it didn't help). The flags in clover that are being used right now are PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x3000 cpus=1 nv_disable=1 The install worked fine. The machine restarted a few times. However, when the login screen arrives, I have no USB mouse and no keyboard. PS/2 mouse and keyboard don't work either. The keyboard and mouse work fine when using clover to choose the boot partition. They just stop working during the boot process. I also tried an install from a USB stick on the same hardware on Sierra - which failed with a 'still waiting for root device' error - leading me to believe that there was a problem with USB compatibility on the machine. I gather there was a change in the USB stack in El Capitan which is perhaps why Yosemite works for me and sierra does not? To get Yosemite working, I had to run it with USB3 turned off in the BIOS. The BIOS also has serial port turned off and intel virtualisation turned off. The Boot is UEFI. I am able to fortunately carry on with my yosemite install until I get this resolved. Does anyone have any ideas how to resolve? I'm relatively new at all this - so if this is a silly question or there is not enough detail in the question, I apologize for that.. Kind Rgds
