  2. Clover Third-Party Tools ...
  3. Thanks to Clover EFI Bootloader I was able to achieve almost perfect HacBook Pro from my Lenovo T420 This guide is work in progress and I’ll try to update it as often as I can outdated! For more updated guide head to tluck's post #481 (thanks tluck for taking over) Why UEFI Only? Faster boot time, better hardware detection, native Mac OS X Installation process and Auto create Recovery HD, working iCloud and iMessage to name a few. But in general you will achieve almost perfect Macbook Pro clone that will most likely survive all future System updates. Note: I’ll be focusing on Mountain Lion but I guess Lion would work equally good. Lets start by preparing Mac OS X install media. You will need: - Working Mac OS X 10.6 or later (Hackintosh, Virtual machine or real Mac) - 8GB+ USB pen-drive - Legal copy of Mountain Lion install app - and an app called Lion Disk Maker - my custom Clover Package: Clover_v2_r1625k0.pkg.zip Prepare Mountain Lion install media using Lion DiskMaker. Making install media bootable on your ThinkPad Run my custom Clover Package and change the install destination to the Mountain Lion install media you’ve just created using Lion DiskMaker. Generaly you don't have to worry about anything else it is all customized to work best on all ThinkPads. Note (optional): At this point you can use another FAT32 formatted pen-drive to install Clover on to it. This pen-drive needs to be capable of storing at least 25MB+ of data. System installation Insert prepared OS X Mountain Lion Install Disk - 10.8 in your ThinkPad and set to boot in UEFI Only mode. And wait for the boot loader. You should be presented with screen like this: Now start the installation process just like you would on a normal Mac. Partition your drive with GUID table and install. Adding Extra drivers using myHack You now should be running vanilla Mac OS X 10.8. Before you start upgrading and instaling software now is a good time to add missing drivers and install them in a clean and proper manner using myHack. 1. Download Extra Folder: Extra.zip 2. Download myHack and place it in your Application folder 3. Run myHack and choose myFix. When asked about Extra folder choose "Use My Own" and point to downloaded Extra folder from step 1. Reboot and check if everything is working fine. By everything, beside AppleACPIPlatform.kext ver 1.3.5, I mean Sound and Battery meter cause these are the only kexts that are in Extra/Extentions Making your custom configuration using OEM folder ... under construction... Booting Clover EFI Bootloader from system drive It's time to get rid of the osx pen-drive you've been booting all the time and install my custom Clover to your main disk and boot directly from your hard drive EFI partition. This step is identical to the "Making install media bootable on your ThinkPad" but this time you will be using your main drive. Just make sure your disk drive is selected when installing. Note: Now You can customize your installation. You have the choice to install Clover Preference Panel and Optional RC scripts. Remove pen-drive and reboot. If all went well you should be booting from your hard drives EFI partition now. Good luck! Software worth mentioning Clover EFI bootloader (thread) - (source code) - (changelog) - (wiki) CloverGrower (post) - (source code) HWMonitor + HWSensors (thread) - (source code) DSDT Editor (thread) DarwinDumper (thread) ... Thanks and credits @Slice, @dmazar and all Clover thread members, @joshhh and all T510 thread members, @gothic860 and all W520 thread members, @Manwe150 and all T420 thread members .…. to be continued. Update 2013-01-20: Flashed latest UEFI Bios version 1.43 + whitelist and started fresh DSDT patching Update 2013-01-30: Uploaded new LenovoEFI_Pack_Beta2.zip (from now on I'll be attaching latest version to this thread). I've started using the EFI/OEM/4180A32 folder specific for my T420 model and added minimal config in the root that should work for everyone else (testers needed). My latest DSDT.aml in EFI/OEM/4180A32/ACPI/patched and updated ThinkPad theme is included. Update 2013-05-15: Updated the post to reflect some changes and progress made in this topic. Using custom Clover r1625 that has all the stuff Lenovo UEFI user needs. This one is enabled to install to ESP by default with ThinkPad Theme and RC scripts and example EFI/CLOVER/OEM/4180A32 folder.
  4. Hi, building Pandora's Box I need to compile Clover from source so I've created a script to do that following Clover devs advices. Well, Build_Clover.command can easily build a standard Clover, but also permit you to define macros that are not available on the standard package. So following Slice intruction here you can create a new package containing legacy boot file with all the macro you need by selecting them: =============================================================================== BUILD boot7 with additional macros <---------------------------------------------------- 1) USE_APPLE_HFSPLUS_DRIVER 2) USE_BIOS_BLOCKIO 3) NO_GRUB_DRIVERS 4) DISABLE_UDMA_SUPPORT 5) ENABLE_VBIOS_PATCH_CLOVEREFI 6) DISABLE_USB_SUPPORT 7) ENABLE_PS2MOUSE_LEGACYBOOT 8) DEBUG_ON_SERIAL_PORT 9) DISABLE_LTO 10) ENABLE_SECURE_BOOT 11) USE_ION 12) DISABLE_USB_MASS_STORAGE 13) ENABLE_USB_OHCI 14) ENABLE_USB_XHCI ONLY_SATA_0 added! actual macros defined: -D REAL_NVRAM -D NO_GRUB_DRIVERS_EMBEDDED -D ONLY_SATA_0 That affect boot7 only, enter you choice or press "b" to build: Result: also the package is customized to remind you what you have done!

  5. So I've got my hack working fairly well, with one or 2 small issues. Setup: yosemite 10.10.3, clover (legacy mode) z68ap-d3 rev. 1, f8 bios i5 2500k (@4.2-4.4 oc) 16gb DDR3, 180G SSD os drive r9 290 (powercolor turboduo, non-reference) Only issues are lack of sleep support, and video card issues - namely, flashing screen at start (fixed by unplugging / replugging monitor or sleep/wake display, which does work), no dual monitor support. I'm hoping going to UEFI bios will help with sleep / wake, and also possibly with GPU issues I'm going to try and flash a UEFI BIOS on my video card as well. Intuitively, it seems everything 'should' work together better if it's all UEFI, which my mobo's bios is still currently legacy BIOS (award). Which begs the question - if I do update to UEFI - which I've already found a compatible, working update for my board - will I have to do a reinstall? Or, just delete / generate new DSDT? Thanks in advance!
  6. I ported and updated the secure boot tools from Linux. This means we have tools to make signature lists, sign the signature lists, sign EFI files, ... I updated also most tools (for example the signature list signer in order to be able to sign multi-signature databases) to work optimal and properly in OS X. Recently I updated the sources for libuuid (1.0.3) and openssl (1.0.1i) so that it builds against the latest versions. I built 32 and 64 bit versions. Also included is my bioskeydump tool to dump PK, KEK, DB and DBX files and also their signature if they are signed. Everything is compiled to run very fast (-O3). Source is included. Built results and Clovers signing certificate are included under Build. Enjoy @Slice: You might want to include these in Clover to sign the EFI files in the CloverPackage dir, I also included a recursive script and this can be slightly adapted to run sbsign from another directory. This cloversign.sh script can sign any file you feed to it directly (even multiple files). EDIT: New version V3 for Yosemite built with Apple optimisations. ZLIB 1.2.8 58 with apple extensions, libuuid-1.0.3 with Xcode build project, OpenSSL 1.0.1j 52 with apple extensions and GMP 6.0.0 are used as renewed libraries in the installer. The uuid library now has an Xcode project and is built with full optimisations on same as the ZLIB and OpenSSL parts. Package build script is included in the Makefile under src/pkg. One make installer command in this folder will generate and installer package automatically but you would have to edit the Makefile for changing the installer package signing identity. Installer package included with Apple dev cert signed binaries and package. All works optimal and fast, build flags are -g0 -arch x86_64 -Ofast which means no debugging, 64-bit intel and fastest possible code. Enjoy this enormously fast release. EDIT2: Added a github repo. https://github.com/andyvand/sbsigntool_osx sbsigntool-0.6-Clover_R2.zip sbsigntool-0.6-R3-installer.zip sbsigntool-0.6-Clover_R3.zip

    [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    PMPatch is obsolete and not supported by me anymore. I have developed the successor of it, UEFIPatch, which is both more universal and reliable, and uses UEFITool's engine for proper UEFI modification. Combined topic about all my UEFITool-based utilities is here, sources and binaries are available on GitHub. Bug reports are welcome. To any new readers of this topic: it's you who takes all the risk of bricking your board, it's you who is responsible for all things that you do to your PC, not me or any other developer out there! BIOS modifications are risky by their nature, please be aware of it and don't blame me if anything is gone wrong for you. Old PMPatch post and FAQ is in spoiler below:
  8. Hello Insanelymac, I've successfully installed Mac OS X Sierra on 2 32gb flash drives with them as a JBOD Raid. I can only get into the hackintosh if I use another USB flash drive with Clover installed on it. I've tried using a clover installer however that just installs on my Raid Disk. I've also noticed that when I open clover configurator, there are 2 EFI partitions but both of them were empty. I've tried moving the contents of the EFI on my Raid disk that clover installed but my BIOS does not detect it. Also when I use the other flash drive to boot into clover, there is another volume called "BOOT OS X" right next to my Raid Disk Volume that I use to boot from. I just want to install and boot off of my Raid usb flash drives. Really running out of options, Thanks guys.
  9. Hi there, This guide will enable your Intel addon NIC (EXPI9301CT) to fully support the Apple drivers and behave like a native Apple NIC. I wanted a solution for my trusted Intel NIC without having to use any third party kexts to get it working and also wanted it to be fully UEFI compatible. So I researched a little and would like to share my results in this short guide. Caution: This guide will only work for Intel Desktop CT NICs with PCI device ID 10D3. Also I only used OSX Yosemite to verify the results, but it should work in Mavericks, too. 1) Optional: Remove third party kext for the NIC Please remove any other third party kext you may have installed for your Intel NIC. We do not want any conflicts here later on. 2) Create a bootable DOS USB drive I used Rufus Boot USB Disk with an Image of Win98 DOS bootfiles to create it under Windows. The original ISO for the Win98 DOS Boot files can be found here http://goo.gl/WOaQi (Windows 98 DOS Boot). Any other DOS compatible Boot environment should work, too. 3) Download Intel Preboot files PREBOOT.EXE from http://goo.gl/ppSRzo 4) Copy the necessary files to the USB drive Extract the the download and copy the following files the bootable DOS USB drive Copy BOOTIMG.FLB from PREBOOT\APPS\BootUtil Copy BootUtil.EXE from PREBOOT\APPS\BootUtil\DOS 5) Restart and boot from the USB-Stick You will temporarily have to change the UEFI-BIOS settings to be able to boot from a DOS environment. I had to set the following options: Legacy USB = Enable SecureBoot = Other FastBoot = Off 6) Flash the NIC with EFI-ROM After Booting from the DOS USB drive please use the following commands in the given order. Backup the original ROM BootUtil -SAVEIMAGE -FILE=Backup.FLB Enable flash write capability on NIC BootUtil -FE -ALL Update NIC with EFI-ROM BootUtil -UP=EFI -ALL -FILE=BOOTIMG.FLB 7) Change PCI device ID with ethtool Congratulations, your Intel NIC is now UEFI compatible and should already show up in your UEFI BIOS. We now will have to change the device ID from the NIC, so that OSX can use the native driver. Boot from a Linux Live Boot environment (e.g. Ubuntu) and change the PCI device ID from 10D3 to 10F6 with ethtool. Please ensure your Intel NIC is eth0. We do not want to patch any other NICs by mistake. sudo -s apt-get install ethtool ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x10D38086 offset 0x16 value 0x00 ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x10D38086 offset 0x17 value 0x00 ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x10D38086 offset 0x1A value 0xF6 8) Start OSX and enjoy your native Apple Intel NIC Reboot and don't forget to change the UEFI-Settings back from step 4 to their original values. After this you can start OSX and the NIC should be recognized. Windows will pick up the NIC without any problems, so no worries if you want to switch back to Windows sometime later on. Disclaimer: Please note, this procedure solved a very specific problem for me and the guide is certainly not perfect. I do not take any responsibility for anything that may go wrong if you follow it. I hope this guide may be useful for someone and please feel free to give any suggestions that may improve it. Cheers, Maroder
  10. Hi, after a few KP's i managed to get my fresh Mavericks 10.9.4 system working relatively smoothly, but i'm not really sure about Power Management, Speedstep, C-States,P-States etc and also Wake from Sleep is broken. (No video signal on wake). I don't really know about patching my motherboard etc. Couldn't find any pre-made patches. Also i don't really understand whether i need SSDT or DSDT (apparently not the latter for UEFI Mobo?) and I don't know how i test eg C-States, P-States etc or what I need them for. One thing that's a possible "issue" is the Corsair H80i, attached to the Mobo via mini-usb. there's no controller software for OSX obviously. When I had a 10.9 Mavericks working with Sleep, it would wake itself up immediately with GLAN EHC2. This may have been the USB connection on the fan forcing it to wake up but not sure. Currently though Wake is broken as mentioned, so I can't just test that issue by unplugging the USB at the moment) any advice & links would be gratefully appreciated. Presumably first step would be to fix the system to be able to remove NullCPUPowerManagement? thanks J Mavericks 10.9.4 (from App Store) myHack installer myHack AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement patch NullCPUPowerManagement.kext myHack TRIM patch kernel flags: npci=0x2000 dart=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes Realtek81xx kext for ethernet (or might be using EthernetBuiltIn=Yes... not sure, as both present) Envy24 audio drivers for m-audio Audiophile2496 Chameleon NVFileRam kext for iMessage fix --- Motherboard: Asus P8B75-V (UEFI) CPU: i7 3770 GPU: Zotac GT210 Cooler: Corsair H80i SSD: Samsung EVO840 250GB
  11. This may already be common knowledge, and it might not be the best place to post this, but I've got a bit of a tip for anyone using the Project Q motherboard, or indeed any UEFI-enabled motherboard who wants to boot OS X into safe mode or verbose mode. Holding shift didn't work, and neither did any of the modifier combinations that would work on an Apple machine, and since the baord doesn't rely on a software bootloader there's no way to add on any boot flags. The way round it is to boot into the UEFI shell and manually run the boot.efi bootloader (found in /System/Library/CoreServices/), adding the relevant boot flags. 1. Hit F12 after powering on to bring up the boot menu 2. Select UEFI: Built In EDK Shell 3. Find the file system with OS X installed on it. Mine is on FS1, so to get there I typed "FS1:" (no quotes) and hit enter. The way I identified it was by changing to each file system and typing "ls" to show its contents. The OS X file system will be the one with /Applications and /Library in its root, as opposed to the usual folders found in Windows 4. navigate to the correct folder by typing "cd /System/Library/CoreServices/" - capitalisation may be important if you use a case-sensitive file system. 5. Type boot.efi and add the flags you want to use to the end. A full list can be found in the link below http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/99891-osx-flags-list-for-darwin-bootloader-kernel-level/ That's everything you need. Now you can turn on verbose mode, get into safe mode or boot into single user mode. Great if you need to troubleshoot a problem.
  12. I am currently trying to get display sleep and hardware sleep to work on the Surface Pro. From my searches I am not sure anyone has resolved this issue yet. I am a bit more focused on actually getting the display to sleep (or even brightness control) over hardware sleep since I feel that battery life is of less concern that the life of the display unit. The farthest I can get at this point is that when the display should sleep, the image currently on the screen freezes until you click to wake the display, and when you put the hardware to sleep it appears to sleep but never resumes. The configuration I am using is a UEFI boot using Clover r1928, Mac OS ML 10.8.4. I used ssdtprgen.sh to extract my SSDT.aml which is in my EFI/ACPI/patched. Attached you will find my config.plist and a few DSDT files. DSDT.aml.nomod is the default DSDT extracted from the hardware with no modifications. DSDT.aml.patched is the patched DSDT I created. DSDT.aml.ifire is a patched DSDT I found on the forum here from iFire. Using my patched version or iFire's version I get the same results with the display not sleeping and the device never resuming on full sleep. My config.plist has the smbios set to MacBookPro9,2, however I have tried MacBookAir5,1 which matches the processor in the Surface Pro, and have also applied no SMBios data to Clover which auto detects the system as MacBook5,2. So if anyone has any suggestions or sees something I might be missing please let me know. At this point I just feel like I am going in circles and not making any progress. Thanks for any help and if you need any other information please let me know. SurfaceProCloverDSDT.zip
  13. Update (4/25/16): With the guidance of Slice, I was able to reset the flags on my EFI(disk0s1) partition. Now Clover installer/updater correctly mounts and updates the bootloader in the EFI partition. 1. I dowloaded the most current gparted (v2016) and there is now a new flag called ESP in addition to the boot flag on the disk0s1 EFI partition. 2. Apparently, the older gparted (v2009-2010) I was using wasn't showing me all the flags on the partition. 3. I double checked the technical specs for OSX EFI partitions and there is supposed to be those two flags (boot and ESP) when using gparted to view the drive. 4. I turned both flags off and then rewrote them both back by turning them back on within gparted for the EFI partition (disk0s1). That seemed to do the trick. There may have been some data corruption on the boot sector area. 5. The most current version of clover installer/updater v3438 was able to now mount my EFI partition and update the bootloader correctly. The other possibility is that there was a slight change to the clover installer that resolved my drive mounting issue within the clover installer package. Either way, I am relieved.--------------------- I have been having issues with Clover (most current and slightly older versions) not wanting to install to my hidden EFI partition on my SSD OSX installation drive (disk0s1). I didn't have this issue when i was running Yosemite. Clover updated as it should to my hidden EFI partition and I used UEFI boot without problem. I decided to update my system to El Capitan doing a clean install. I wiped my SSD using Disk Utility. I first errased the drive, reformatted to a new partition (GUID HFS) and created my UEFI USB El Capitan loader. I installed El Capitan to the SSD without issue. After installation, both the EFI and the OSX partition where created properly along with the recovery partition. I rebooted using the UEFI USB and configured OSX after the welcome screen. I then tried to run the latest version of Clover for the UEFI installation and it failed as it couldn't open the EFI hidden partition and install the kexts and Clover. It basically failed to mount the EFI partition and install to the EFI partition. I even mounted the EFI partition on disk0s1 where my OSX install was on my SSD and it didnt create any files or folders in the partition. I did create an EFI folder with everything in my root OSX partition instead (very odd). I double and triple checked that i selected UEFI as I always do and that the drive was indeed the OSX SSD installation drive. I manually mounted disk0s1 EFI partition and it had nothing from clover in it. I wiped the EFI partition and tried again without success. I reloaded my GA-Z97MX Gaming5 firmware v6 again and it still failed to load clover into the EFI partition. It did create a EFI folder in my root directory for OSX with all the correct files but i couldn't boot to it using UEFI (YES- i was selecting UEFI from the menu, i have done this successfully on Mavericks and Yosemite many times before) If I move the folder and files from the root EFI folder to the EFI partition, I can boot OSX using UEFI I used gparted to reformat the SSD and try to do another fresh install of OSX again thinking that Disk Utility didn't get rid of all the old bootloader info. Clover couldn't mount the hidden EFI partition on disk0s1. I could do it manually though. I manually mounted the EFI boot partition for my SSD and moved all the clover/mulitbeast files over there. I was able to again boot UEFI SSD El Capitan. When I try to update clover, it doesn't open the hidden EFI partition or update the files in it. It does, however, create an EFi folder in my OSX root with the new Clover bootloader files there. ------------------------------------------------ Original post: Background facts: I have done this successfully many times with both Mavericks and Yosemite in the past using the Clover UEFI booloader 1. I clicked uefi 2. The hidden EFI partition exists on my SSD (disk0s1) OSX install 3. I tried reformatting the drive using gparted and Disk Utility as was outlined in the guides 4. I tried erasing just the EFI partition and changing the file structure 5. I reloaded my GA-Z97MX Gaming5 v6 firmware 6. I did check off the box for loading Clover as uefi 7. I told Clover to install into the ssd OS X drive (I doubled and triple checked this) 8. I booted everything using Uefi from both my F12 option and BIOS option - I don't Legacy boot 9. I tried the most recent versions of Clover. I also tried an older version of Clover for curiosity. ---------------------- Nothing I do can seem to get Clover to load to the hidden EFI partition on my SSD OSX install (disk0s1) Does anyone have an idea what I need to fix to get Clover to recognize, mount, open, and install to my EFI partition on my SSD (disk0s1)?
  14. Hey! :-) I really need some advice. I am not completely new to this but I admit I am far from being an expert. I tried various (about 7 or 8) How-Tos or Tutorials, read in-depth tips about partitions, UEFI, BIOS and what not ... but I am still too stupid to get this up and running! My Goal: Dual Boot OS X and Windows 10 with Clover UEFI (only) My Setup: 1x 250GB EVO 840 - Mac OS X 10.11.5 1x 120GB EVO 840 - Windows 10 GA-Z87N-Wifi, 16GB RAM, GA GeForce 760 OC, 1TB Seagate Barracuda (GPT, HFS+, Data only, disconnected), 250GB Maxtor HDD (GPT, HFS+, Data only, disconnected) Yesterday I was very close (I think): • I reformatted the EFI Partition on the OS X SSD and reinstalled the newest clover. • In OS X I reformatted the 120GB SSD to GPT with the main part formatted as FAT. • I double-checked the correct existence of the EFI partitions on the OS X SSD (disk0s1) and the Windows SSD (disk1s1). • I set my BIOS to UEFI only. • I (UEFI) booted to my Windows 10 Installer stick and installed Windows 10 on the 120GB SSD. • Windows installation finished flawlessly. • I booted once more into Windows via pressing F12 on my keyboard to see if it was working. • Then I booted into Clover ... • Now I have 4 or 5 NTFS entries, all of them left to the OS X entry, that all boot to nothing! • The last NTFS entry, the only one right to the OS X entries, started up Windows 10 correctly for two tries! I thought I did it ... well ... with the third try, booting to Windows turned into a black screen. Windows is starting up ... the circling dots appear ... then the screen turns off and it stops. When I reboot and do it again, the "Auto Repair" appears. Then again, Windows is booting to a black Screen. The next time "Auto Repair" appears again ... and so on and so on When I boot up Windows with "F12", selecting the Windows partition, everything seems to be working just fine. OS X is booting like a charme from Clover. What am I doing wrong? I work on this for over a week now and I am getting really frustrated. :-(

  16. Hi I recently bought an asus desktop. Its specs are CPU Intel core i5 - 3470 RAM 8 GB VGA Nvidia GeForce GTX550 ti 1GB HDD Toshiba 1tb I created a mountain lion usb stick with myHack but now I don't know how to boot the that usb pendrive. I entered UEFI screen and tried to boot from usb but it only recognized the windows 8 and ubuntu system partitions. What should I do in order to boot the usb drive with an uefi bios?
  17. This app can extract the uncompressed .efi files from an UEFI option ROM. It can also directly decompress a compressed EFI binary (raw compressed data). Usage: UEFIRomExtract infile.rom outfile.efi I tested this on various binaries and it always worked fine when the .rom file is an UEFI option ROM. Enjoy EDIT: Added Github repo: https://github.com/andyvand/UEFIRomExtract UEFIRomExtract.zip UEFIRomExtract_Windows.zip
  18. Olá! Bom pessoal, eu trabalho com programação, possuo um Notebook Dell Inspiron 14" modelo 2640.

Tentei instalar o iAtkos L2 no meu DualCore 3.4Ghz E6700 mas não consegui e ninguém ajudou... Então resolvi tentar com o meu Notebook, mas o problema é que eu trabalho todos os dias nele, não posso passar muito tempo sem ele... Então eu preciso de ajuda com isso, e outra... ele teve um problema recentemente, e um DVD quebrou dentro do driver, então estou sem o driver de DVD, ou seja, só poderei fazer isso via pendriver USB. Então se alguém puder me ajudar a instalar o windows 8 em dualboot com o Mac OS X (a versão que vocês recomendarem), eu ficarei grato... Lembrando que minha placa é UEFI. -------- EDIT -------- Pessoal, resolvi postar as configurações do meu desktop, pra saber se realmente não teria uma forma de instalar nele...

  19. Hello So basically I am planning to install MacOS Sierra sooner or later, but I have a feeling that my current installation (Windows 10 Pro & Ubuntu 16.04) are going to cause trouble, because of Ubuntu's GRUB loader. Both operating systems are installed in UEFI mode, and that's why I am also going to use the Clover loader for my installation. What I just simply wonder is that if GRUB is going to interfere or not. Can I actually make a triple-boot with the current installation or do I have to get rid of Ubuntu and then reinstall it after I've got Clover?

  21. Hi All, Just to let you know that I did an in-place upgrade of a pure UEFI install of Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 to Sierra 10.12.3 with very little effort... Directly from the Installer App :-) Because I am using a Broadcom BCM943224HMS WiFi card in a PCIE x1 adaptor, I needed to patch the whitelist in "IO80211Family.kext/Contents/plugin/BCRM94360.kext/Contents/MacOS/BCRM94360" for iMac14,2 (it used to be 12,2 but was updated to avoid blackscreen). I also reverted to Apple NVIDIA driver, but have since switched back to Web Driver :-) Same Ethernet kext (RTL8111.kext) worked fine, and AppleALC.kext still worked fine. If custom SSDT.aml for speedstep is causing Kernel Panic, you need to create another one with PikerAlpha's ssdtPRGen.sh script. I cannot believe how easy this all was...
  22. Hi, so i have been running my Hackintosh for nearly 2 years. Over that time i have added & updated my hardware to get all features of a proper Mac. My serial number & longer serial board number have stayed the same & my smbios has always been set to a Mac Pro 3,1 With my Native Bluetooth/WIFI Combo card i have had all features working: HandOff, Continuity, SMS Relay, Personal Hotspot etc. So when the new MacOS Sierra comes out my setup will be able to run all of the new features, i have an iPhone 6 & an Apple Watch Sport. The problem is my SMBIOS is Mac Pro (Early 2008) which is not listed as supported, so what would be the best way/process to update my SMBIOS. I'm familiar with Clover Configurator but what would be the best/ most compatible SMBIOS to choose? Newer iMac? Newer Mac Pro? (I'm almost sure to be able to access the Nvidia Webdrivers for my GeForce GTX 960 i have to choose a Mac Pro). Will using Clover Configurator to change my SMBIOS & serial number then simply doing a reboot be enough or could it cause problems, as in security issues, i remember from the past i did this a few times and in verbose boot it would say about iTunes DRM? I also have the newer 2 Factor Authentication setup on my iPhone 6 & Hackintosh. Should i do a fresh install with the new SMBIOS & Serial Number then pull my user account info from the time machine backup on post install (When setting up a user account)? My specs are below. Thanks in advance for any advice help. OSX version: OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 (15F34) Clover version: Clover 3556 Theme: Apple Style Clover installations: UEFI + PartitionDxe + Aptratiofix2 CPU: Intel® Core i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz RAM: 16GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77-DS3H Audio-Onboard: ALC887 GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB Mac Model(Smbios): Mac Pro 3,1 Boot flags(Arguments): dart=0 nvda_drv=1 kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0 WIFI/Bluetooth : BRCM20702 Hub (Combo Card made for an iMac) Ok so i got clover upgraded & partitions setup to install the dev version of 11.12 & i was correct, it says my hardware is too old. Can i use clover configurator to change my smbios then reboot?
  23. This guide is intended to share my experience with the successful Yosemite installation on ASRock H97 Pro4 using Clover UEFI boot. Guide contents: 1. Hardware specifications 2. Preparing Clover USB thumb with Yosemite 3. Installing Yosemite 4. Post installation 5. Files & links 6. Credits 7. Update to 10.10.1 8. Update to 10.10.2 1. Hardware specifications: Motherboard: ASRock H97 Pro4 AMI UEFI BIOS v.1.60 CPU: Intel i5-4460 @ 3,2GHz SSD: Samsung EVO 840 250GB Video: Gigabyte nVidia GTX 750 2GB DDR5 RAM Audio: Realtek ALC892 Ethernet: Intel I218-V RAM: 2 x 8GB Kingston HyperX @ 1600MHz ASRock H97 Pro4 is a wonderful choice for building a working Yosemite Hackintosh. The board doesn't have locked MSR registers in the BIOS and thus the BIOS image doesn't need a PM Patching. Thanks to the correct CPU settings in the BIOS (Advanced / CPU Configuration) and some Clover fixes these work flawlessly: 1. Native CPU Power Management (XCPM mode) 2. Restart 3. Shutdown 4. Sleep 5. Wake from Sleep (either via keyboard of mouse) 6. USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports 2. Preparing Clover USB thumb with Yosemite If you don't have access to a real Mac or Hackintosh you can do the preparation procedure on Windows with the help of BootDiskUtility 2.1. Preparing the USB thumb drive with Yosemite and Clover on a real Mac or Hackintosh: You'll need a 8GB USB thumb drive, the "Install OS X Yosemite.app" (make sure it resides in the /Applications folder). Using Disk Utility format the thumb drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install" (without the quotes, the name Install is used by the below terminal command). Then open Terminal and paste the following command: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction You'll be asked to enter your password, type it and hit enter. The copying process will take up to max 10—15 minutes. Install Clover r2960 (download link at the end of this post) to the USB thumb drive with checked Install for UEFI booting only option: After the successful installation of Clover the EFI folder will be mounted and opened by default. Copy FakeSMC.kext (mandatory for booting OS X) to /EFI/Clover/kext/10.10 (manually create the 10.10 folder): Overwrite the original config.plist file located here /EFI/Clover/config.plist with this config.plist. I'm posting my initial config.plist for saving you a time testing Clover settings and avoiding KPs (kernel panics) during the initial boot with Clover. Copy HFSPlus.efi to /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI/ and delete VBoxHFS.efi from the same folder (example below): Don't remove the USB thumb, it will be used to boot Clover and to install Yosemite. 2.2. UEFI BIOS setup Restart the system and hit F2 to enter the UEFI BIOS setup. Make sure the below settings are setup as following: Advanced / Chipset Configuration: Primary Graphics Adapter = PCI Express VT-d = Disabled IGPU = Disabled Advanced / CPU Configuration [CPU PM (native XCPM mode) & flawless Sleep and Wake]: CPU C States Support = Enabled Enhanced Halt Support (C1E) = Enabled CPU C3 State Support = Disabled CPU C6 State Support = Auto CPU C7 State Support = Auto Package C State Support = C6 Advanced / Storage Configuration: SATA Controller(s) = Enabled SATA Mode Selection = AHCI Advanced: Intel Rapid Start Technology = Disabled Intel Smart Connect Technology = Disabled Advanced / ACPI Configuration: Suspend to RAM = Auto Check Ready Bit = Enabled ACPI HPET Table = Enabled RTC Alarm Power On = By OS (this setting doesn't cause system waking on every 2 hours!) USB Keyboard / Remote Power On = Enabled USB Mouse Power On = Enabled Advanced / USB Configuration: USB Controller = Enabled Intel USB3.0 Mode = Smart Auto Legacy USB Support = Enabled Legacy USB3.0 Support = Enabled USB Compatibility Patch = Disabled Boot: CSM (Compatibility Support Module) = Disabled Security: Secure Boot = Disabled Save these settings and exit the UEFI BIOS setup. 3. Installing Yosemite Skip this step ONLY if you already have your DSDT extracted: This is very useful Clover feature! Wait 10—15 seconds for Clover to complete the process. Your original DSDT.aml extracted by Clover will be located in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/original/DSDT.aml. 3.1. Booting from the Clover USB thumb with the Yosemite installation Make sure the USB thumb is attached to USB 2.0 port before booting the Yosemite installation! 3.1.1. Boot USB thumb to Clover and select "Install OS X Yosemite", hit enter, the installation will begin. Initial installation will prepare the drive of your choice for approx. 5—8 min and then the system will be restarted. 3.1.2. Again boot the USB to Clover and select "Install OS X Yosemite". This time the final installation will take up to 10—15 mins and again will restart the system. 3.1.3. Boot for third time with the Clover USB thumb and boot to your freshly installed Yosemite SSD or HDD. 4. Post installation Install Clover to your Yosemite boot drive (select Install for UEFI booting only), use the same settings as in section 2.1. Again, after successful Clover installation the Yosemite EFI folder will be mounted and opened by default. Copy FakeSMC.kext (mandatory for booting OS X) to /EFI/Clover/kext/10.10 (manually create the 10.10 folder). Copy CLOVERX64.efi to the root of the EFI folder and rename it to SHELLX64.efi, and make sure now the Clover EFI folder looks like this: 4.1. Adding Clover to BIOS UEFI boot menu: The goal of this procedure is to add Clover as a boot item in the BIOS UEFI Boot menu and to get rid of the Clover USB thumb as a boot option. 4.1.1. Restart the system and boot again with the Clover USB thumb drive. You'll see a screen similar to the below (depends on the chosen theme during Clover installation): 4.1.2. Go to Start UEFI Shell 64 (the highlighted icon) and hit enter. Shortly after you'll get the below screen: Find bootx64.efi on HDD EFI partition with the combination of the following commands: Shell> map fs* ➝ Show all partitions Shell> fs0: (or fs1: or fs2: ...)➝ Switch to fs0, fs1, fs2,... partitions Shell> ls ➝ List the contents of current partition / directory Shell> cd \efi\boot ➝ Change the directory to \efi\boot Shell> ls Then: Shell> help bcfg -b -v ➝ Get help on bcfg command Shell> bcfg boot dump ➝ List current boot options Shell> bcfg boot add N bootx64.efi "Clover" ➝ Add bootx64.efi from the current dir (\efi\boot) as a boot option labeled "Clover" (You will see this name also in the UEFI BIOS Boot menu boot items). N is the boot option number: 0 if you want it to be the first, 1 to be the second, etc. Shell> bcfg boot dump ➝ Check if Clover is added Shell> reset ➝ Restart the system and load Clover from SSD / HDD 4.2. Installing the nVidia GTX 750 / 750 Ti web drivers (Optional, only if you have GTX 750 / 750 Ti): 4.2.1. Get the nVidia web driver pkg from here. 4.2.2. Download Pacifist. 4.2.3. Install the new nVidia driver by opening it up in Pacifist, right clicking on the 1.3-63-343.01.01f01-NVWebDrivers.pkg and install it to the Yosemite drive (no need to manually extract and install kexts): 4.2.4. Open Clover config.plist and add the following arguments to the Boot section: kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1 4.2.5. Install the nVidia web driver again — clicking on the pkg file (without using Pacifist). 4.2.6. Restart the system. 4.3. Installing the Intel I218-V kext: Get AppleIntelE1000e.kext from this post and use Kext Utility to install it to /System/Library/Extensions (/S/L/E). 4.4. Installing the Realtek ALC892 kext: Wonderful and easy methods to get Realtek ALC working. Personally, I used method "3. cloverALC/Clover patched" from their guide and am having onboard sound working. Here's mine realtecALC.kext created with this method (kext goes to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/). 5.

Update to 10.10.1 The update went flawlessly since I don't have patched kexts in /S/L/E. Installed the new nVidia web drivers for 10.10.1. 8. Update to 10.10.2 Updated to 10.10.2, restated, and surprise — the system stuck at [AGPM controller: unknown platform]. Restarted again and booted with kernel flag nv_disable=1 (it was nvda_drv=1 before). System booted normally, but with graphic issues. Installed the new nVidia web drivers for 10.10.2. Then reverted back to nvda_drv=1 kernel flag, rebuilt the kernel cache, restarted and the graphic issues went. Applied again the method described here. Tip: To avoid the above situation, first update to the latest 10.10.2 nVidia web drivers and after then update to 10.10.2. Note: Feel free to share your experience and suggestions in order to make the guide even more clear and easy to follow.
