  1. 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.
  2. Hi, so this is an issue I have put off for a while by just selecting the windows drive to boot. My Clover bootloader, UEFI, cannot load my Windows installations. Those are set to boot legacy, so I can understand that. But I cannot get legacy Clover working! When I install it to my drive and set that to boot, it just goes straight to the Windows installation. I think it has to do with the boot1 / 6 type error where it's just redirecting it to Windows, because that's all that happens. In Summation- UEFI Clover-can't boot Windows Legacy Clover-forwarded to another boot drive Something something active partition? Happy new year and thank you for your time, I appreciate any help!
  3. rEFInd feat. Ozmosis

    Hello everybody, I’m using Ozmosis with a Gigabyte H81M-HD3 but unfortunately this board hasn’t enough space in it’s ROM to store the apfs.efi, too. Than I have a second machine, my ZBox-Nano that not even has the space for the really necessary stuff. Sure, Clover is able to solve all this problems but I want to go with Ozmosis Here comes rEFInd into the game: http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/ This boot loader could be installed into the ESP. rEFInd is not only able to detect apfs formatted partitions but also to load uefi drivers! And after some weeks of testing, I claim that rEFInd is doing his job very well. rEFInd is open source so I take a look into it and found a good starting point to learn a little more about the UEFI. The result is a rEFInd version with some additions, that should make life easier and more colorful …. I’m using this „enhanced“ version in two different setup’s. First the H81M, that comes with ozmosis, hfsplus, fakesmc and a patched dsdt inside the ROM. Here rEFInd is only loading apfs.efi and scanning for macOS. The Oz directory on the ESP is not in use. Second the ZBox. I only replaced the FileSystem driver with EnhancedFat and patched the ROM to unlock the MSR. rEFInd is loading hfsplus, apfs and ozmosis and is scanning for macOS. Ozmosis is loading dsdt, ssdt, kext and defaults from the Oz directory on the ESP. If you like to test it: Installation is easy but do it at your own risk! Unzip the download and open the directory in Finder. It comes with rEFInd, ozmosis.efi, apfs.efi, hfsplus.efi and a Oz directory with mac mini defaults and fakesmc.kext. Goto Efi/Oz and adapt it, to suit your needs. Goto Efi/Boot/drivers_x64, if you have ozmosis or hfsplus installed into your ROM, delete it from the drivers directory because you don’t need to load it again. If you are ready to go, mount your ESP and copy shellX64.efi and the Efi directory into the ESP root. Btw.: This is a EDKII shell, that comes with some functions, which are needed by the nsh scripts I used for changing rEFInd’s configuration from the boot menu. This is a round up of the changes I made, but after some more testing I will create a fork on GitHub. Until then I can provide a patch against the current refind source, if someone is interested. rEFInd 0.11.2-enhanced Changes / Additions A. Configuration rEFInd is showing a message while scanning for devices. To disable this message use: hide_scan_msg 1 Boot Splash is an extra banner used only with timeout -1 This banner is splashing centered at the boot screen. boot_splash banners/banner-black.png Color Mode can be any combination from the following 0=off 1=icon_auto, 2=icon_value 4=font_auto, 8=font_value 16=menu_auto, 32=menu_value 64=back_value color_mode 0 <- function is disabled (default) color_mode 21 <- icons, text and selections are tinted automatic background color from the banner color_mode 85 <- icons, text and selections are tinted automatic background color from value (for transparent banner) color_mode 101 <- icons, text are tinted automatic menu / selection color from value background color from value (for transparent banner) *_auto generates the color from the current background color *_value enables the corresponding rgb(a)_color rgba colors are in hex RED, GREEN, BLUE, ALPHA rgb colors are in hex RED, GREEN, BLUE rgba_color_icon f3,f3,f3,5e rgba_color_menu d3,d3,d3,5e rgba_color_font d3,d3,d3,5e rgb_color_back 0c,6f,b8 Space between icons in pixel # big-icons(0-256) small-icons(0-64) y-spacing(0-64) icon_spacing 64 32 24 B. Behaviour The unmodified rEFInd is scanning all devices at start. Then it loads the drivers if any detected and scans the devices again. This is good for Mac's but we want to load the drivers for sure, so I change this a little. Now rEFInd only scans for the ESP to know it's location. Then it reads the config, load the drivers and start scanning devices. Also this version is able to detect the 'macOS Install Data'. This is necessary for installing and updating macOS on partitions formatted with apfs. New embed banner, arrows and selections. New embed font (Ubunutu-Mono 18pt and 28pt). New os_icons from https://github.com/munlik/refind-theme-regular New tool and function icons. Visual changes for creating the boot entries. Changed icon spacing And some more ... Update (14.12.07): - adaptable icon spacing - apfs.efi from macOS 10.13.2 Have Fun! rEFInd-0.11.2-enhanced.zip

And I can plug and unplug built-on LCD at any time, it works well without glitches. 2) CPU turboboost only to 2,3Ghz although it should be up to 2.6Ghz; 3) USB ports work incorrect after sleep mode (usb-flashs shout be replugged); 4) The built-in notebook microphone stops working when I insert the headphones with a built-in microphone (Both microphones don't work. OS X recognizes headphone's microphone as line-in). 5) I can't get to work AppleBlackLight.kext (There isn't brightness slider in SysPref -> monitor panel); 6) There isn't "Touchpad panel" in SysPref when I use ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext (I can't use VoodooPS2Controller.kext as touchpad has mad cursor motion with it), but SysPref -> Touchpad panel appears with it. - Use AsusNBFnKeys.kext (It makes all Fn keys working - enable/disable touchpad, enable/disable bluetooth, switch to Android tablet and other) carefully because some issues appear with brightness control. For the present moment I don't use the AsusNBFnKeys.kext.

  5. Hello! I'm trying to install El Capitan on my Lenovo Yoga 300 but I can't even get any bootloader to show up after turning on the computer... I tried Enoch, Chameleon and Clover and neither of them works. My BIOS can't see Enoch USB, but sees Clover. Unfortunately, when I try to boot them I can see nothing... I tried Clover in UEFI only mode, with Legacy mode, but no success. Please help me! My laptop has Intel Celeron N3050 with Intel HD.
  6. I decided to update my Hackintosh from 10.12 to 10.12.5 today. The update went fine but after rebooting, my hackintosh hdd was not showing up in the BIOS. I could boot into it through my original install USB however. I tried updating clover, replacing it with the one on the USB, and copying it to the Mac HD from the EFi partition to be safe. Nothing seems to be working. Any ideas on how to get my Clover up and running again?
  7. Hello everyone, I've finally managed to install Windows 10 in the same HDD as macOS Sierra, the problem is that my laptop boots directly into Windows, it won't let me go to clover. However, if I boot from my installation usb i can boot into clover and choose Windows or Sierra. I have already tried to reinstall Clover but it will keep booting into Windows. I have also tried to rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw-orig.efi and copy the clover efi into the Windows efi folder and renaming as bootmgfw.efi. It will only work until I boot Windows, next time it will boot into Windows directly again. Please help
  8. 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...
  9. Hello guys, after getting a great help by RehabMan, finally I can post my steps to use Clover UEFI with hotpatch.

  10. SONY VAIO FIT macOS SIERRA 10.12.3 UNDER CONSTRUCTION AGAIN. --- Sorry guys, there have been some things missing, or had been in wrong order. Because of the extrem long guide, I removed the content temporarily. Will be fixed soon.
  11. Hello everybody, I just passed the full progress from a Windows 10 to a Dual Boot Hackintosh. After a few stupid mistakes it's working now absolutely fine. I have a Radeon 380X I set my iGPU as primary in BIOS. But I experience some issues with sleep mode. The thing is, in OSX it will just stop the video output, when pressing a key it will activate it again, but the PC itself just stays on as in normal mode (no affect). In Windows 10 there isn't the energy saver button in Start Menu. So there's no way of pressing it. By the way Shutdown and Restart work perfect. But, now it's getting interesting, when I boot my Windows through BIOS boot menu, this option is available (if I boot Windows through Clover it's not). I think it's (hopefully) not a big deal, as it's actually working in "pure Windows 10" which I think boots through legacy. I just read through all the "Sleep Issues" Thread and also used the search function but none of them fits to the issues I am experiencing. I was thinking about the "darkmode" bootflag or something with DSDT but as I'm absolutely new I'm really unsure what to do and don't want to destroy my actually running system. Thank you very much for your help! P.S. If any other informations are necessary I'm glad to provide them to you.
  12. With the purpose of running the beloved Apple Mac OS X on our Intel ASUS laptop I am writing this guide to share my experience and knowledge about this Hackintosh. This tutorial applies to running versions between 10.9 and 10.11.6, focusing specially in El Capitan. This method applies also for Sierra but at the moment my WiFi Card doesn't work well with 10.12 so I chose to remain in a stable Mac OS X I have 99% functionality: What Works : WiFi, Bluetooth, Airdrop, HandOff, FindMyMac (WiFi card has to be replaced, I put a BCM94352HMB) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated HD4400 graphics Trackpad with 1finger, 2finger, 3finger and 4finger gestures Keyboard (Perfect with Volume, Brightness, Play/Pause, Numpad working) Battery Percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI audio DVD Drive HDMI audio and video VGA out iMessage and FaceTime Recovery Partition What is not working Internal SD Card Reader When you install Clover Bootloader to your USB media or HDD you should select the following options: - Install for UEFI booting only - Install Clover in the ESP - Drivers64UEFI (Fat-64, OSxAptioFix2Drv) After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folder In the above mentioned “other” folder place the kexts that I will quote next, please note that the kexts marked in red are the absolute necessary ones for booting Mac OS X installer , the rest should only be installed afterwards, after having Mac OS X installed to your hard drive and directly to /System/Library/Extensions : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext BrcmPatchRAM (Mavericks) or BrcmPatchRAM2 (Yosemite or later) CodecCommander.kext DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext (Only for El Capitan) FakePCIID_IntelHDMIaudio.kext FakePCIID_BroadcomWiFI.kext (makes my BCM94352HMB work) FakePCIID_IntelHDGraphics.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) IntelBacklight.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext (Only for El Capitan) After all the kexts necessary are in the correct folder, proceed to mimic my config.plist Note that the Kext patches included only work for El Capitan. If you want older version support, post here and I can help. I recommend using Clover Configurator App config.plist.zip For your SMBIOS choose MacbookPro11,2 and shake those serial numbers to really get a genuine one. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin in your USB you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch I recommend patching these tables before installing Mac OS X in order to have a better user experience and better functionality as well as a cleaner and smoother install. Your computer may not even reach the installer since we have no way of disabling our discrete NVIDIA Geforce 820m without getting our hands dirty in DSDT patches. Delete all files that don’t start with DSDT or SSDT- If you have an SSDT with an x just delete it because it is dynamically loaded and so does not need our attention. Place the files in our interest in a folder and: cd /path/to/a/folder iasl -da -dl *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors. In the latest BIOS we have the following errors: DSDT- We will find 4 errors The parse op Zero errors can be fixed by deleting all the “Zero” you find in the conflicting place The remaining two errors are fixed by applying the ADBG fix from RehabMan repo SSDT-1- We find many errors and all can be fixed by applying the patch “Remove _PSS placeholders” SSDT-12- We find an error related to a specific sector of a cryptic DOS device, we can safely delete these following lines from the SSDT Now that all our ACPI tables are nice and clean we can proceed to patching First of all, open all the tables at the same time and hit Command + F to bring up the Find Replace dialog box and Find:GFX0 and Replace it with: IGPU Find:B0D3 and Replace it with HDAU Do this in all the tables, so the renames are the same in all your tables When that is done, apply the following patches to the DSDT: Use the patch "DTGP" (you can easily find it with our friend Google ) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix Windows 8” Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “7-8 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x0D" Use the patch "Igpu Brightness Fix" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" When you have applied the Audio Layout Patch just Find: layout and it should show the only result, then make that part look like mine, so that you can use AppleALC for native on the fly audio If you want HDMI audio you should open SSDT-10 and find layout again and make it look like the one you just edited in DSDT, we do this because we want layout-id 29 instead of layout-id 3 For battery percentage you should use the ASUS N55SL/Vivobook patch Finally when you did all that you should follow RehabMan’s tutorial for Disabling Discrete Graphics Cards, on a web which I am not allowed to mention. This will give you much more battery life and a lot less heat. You should read it properly and you will notice there is close to no difference between his example and our laptop so it will be easier than it looks like. Make sure you also use the patch he posts to fix shutdown and sleep when our NVIDIA is disabled. After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and cd /path/to/where/your/patched/tables/are Then delete all the original aml files And then iasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load it Place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" as I did in the attached config.plist. Before installing Mac OS X make sure in your BIOS you have legacy mode disabled and you have secure boot and fast boot also disabled, so that Clover works well. Also make sure the controller is set to AHCI mode. Remember to use a GUID partition table on your Hard Drive and if you plan to dual boot just create two Mac OS Extended Journaled partitions, don't create any Fat partition using Disk Utility cause that will leave you unable to install Windows in UEFI mode. Post-Install Finally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh (this can only be done when you have installed Mac OS X) https://github.com/P...ha/ssdtPRGen.sh Add it to the Sorted Order and you are done Make sure to set the hibernate mode to either 0 or 2 . ​You can copy the colour profiles from ASUS Splendid Utility and use them in Mac OS X, but for my eyes, I prefer the default LCD one This is the first fully functional Hackintosh I ever accomplished and it took me a few months of learning… I am using Mac OS X for about two or more years in this Hack and I am still in love like the very first boot hihihi This is almost the perfect HackBook and has worked since Mountain Lion until now Hope you enjoyed!
  13. Hello, these are 3 issues ive had on my 4790k clover build, since day one, and through many OSs, and I have never found a solution to any of them. Here are the issues: 1) My Ram has always shown as under-clocked. I have 1866 speed Ram, but it has ALWAYS shown as 1777 speed in the Mac install (ive been through yosemite, cap, and now sierra, have updated clover every now and then etc, same issue). The bios and the windows install both see correct speed. 2) Bios sees the Mac install as several duplicated devices (ie, if I go to bios to choose boot device, or i press f8 on boot for boot menu, it shows "mac os 256gb ssd etc" like 10 times in the list. Eventually, the list grows to a point where it will no longer boot until I clear CMOS and get it back down to being listed once, about every other month. 3) Shutdown speed has always been extremely slow. I have an SSD, and even when the install is clean and new, this issue exists. It takes about 45 seconds or more to shutdown (bootup is still fast, about 10 seconds). This is very annoying, it should take about 3 seconds to shutdown. Please help me with these, guys. Thanks My hardware is: 4790k CPU, Asus z97 Pro Wifi AC mobo, 16gb of 1866 ram, samsung SSD, 980ti, using clover on uefi
  14. Hey, so I just installed Sierra using the iAtkos SR and everything works except my Graphics... It shows that I have only 5MB Video memory.. My card is AMD Radeon R9 270. Tried different stuff when installing, like different framebuffers like Hamachi, Futomaki, Dayman, but nothing seems to be working. Tried installing extra stuff with a "AMD Radeon GPU Injector Tool" but nothing worked. The weird thing is, everything worked flawlessly on Yosemite. I even updated without problems via the AppStore, and I never did anything special for my graphics back then as far as I remember. I was running a pretty stable hackintosh on Yosemite (It was iAtkos too), but wanted to upgrade. Has someone with the same graphics card encountered this issue, and fixed it? Thank you in advance!
  15. Good bye Clover-32

    Hi all, I want to say good bye to Clover-32 development. It was occupy my time and efforts while really it is obsolete. It can be used on processors that 32-bit only such as Pentium 4, old Athlon, Yonah, old Atom. On Yonah you can use 10.6. Other CPUs are very problematic for Hackintosh. All UEFI BIOSes are 64bit. Windows UEFI is 64bit only. macOS 10.8+ are 64bit only, moreover, 10.7 also requires 64bit CPU. For those who still have such computer I may recommend to use old Clover versions and other bootloaders. You will not have a profit from new development that striving for new hardware, new OSes, new technologies. I think this topic will be appropriate place to communicate about Clover32. Some coders may publish here their solutions for other such users.
  16. Greetings, I had a fully working 10.11 installation via Clover on an SSD along with Windows 8.1 (dual boot). Today I was having many issues with Win (nothing unusual, sod it!) so I decided to install Win10 on another SSD and because of yet another plethora of Windows-related problems, I had to unplug my main drive (the one with OS X and Clover on it) from the motherboard to make the installer work. When I re-attached it, Clover did not show up. I figured it might be due to changed boot order but there is no UEFI option in the boot menu either (it's usually something like UEFI: P1 Samsung PRO 512GB, now it's without the UEFI bit). The partitions are intact and I can still boot into Windows, yet when I try to boot from the OS X partition, it does not work (normal black screen, insert media, press any key). I did not change any UEFI /“BIOS”/ settings, swap the SATA port, or make any alterations to the drive whatsoever. As my next step, I installed Clover on a USB drive and successfully booted into the main OS X partition on the SSD through it. I successfully mounted the EFI partition and confirmed that all files on it are intact. I then re-installed Clover to the OS X partition (the installer considered it an upgrade), but to no avail—nothing has changed after a reboot. Now I'm sitting here and wondering what could have caused this and how to fix it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find another person with the same problem so far. Any help will be appreciated. Cheers! For what it's worth, the board is a GA Z97X Gaming 7 and here's a part of the Clover install log: Clover EFI installer log - Sun Oct 9 21:17:51 CEST 2016 Installer version: v2.3k r3793 EFI bootloader ====================================================== /dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *512.1 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS OSX 255.5 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 4: Microsoft Reserved 134.2 MB disk0s4 5: Microsoft Basic Data 255.6 GB disk0s5
  17. 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?

  19. 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!

  20. 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.

  21. So I recently made a bootable USB with OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 on it. I didn't change anything on the USB. I just formatted it under Disk Utilities, made a bootable USB with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and that's it. I put the USB in one of my USB-ports of the PC and I boot directly from the USB in UEFI-Bootmode. Coming in the Bootmenu I choose the USB to boot from. The Apple logo comes for like 4-5 seconds. After that the following message pops up at the upper display: "panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff8004d1caa6): „zone_init: kmem_suballoc failed“«Library Caches com.apple.xbx Sources xnu xnu3248". Just some miliseconds later it reboots. I changed almost everything. I booted with "nv_disable=1" "-x" "-v"... Here's a video how it looks like. I recorded it so yeah... My Specs: CPU: Intel i5-4460 @ 3.20 GHz GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 RAM: 1x8GB DDR3 Motherboard: Medion H81H3-EM2 (I know. Self-build PC is better...) In the BIOS i just turned off Intel Virtualization Technology and choose UEFI-bootmode. That's it...
  22. Hello fellows of this great community. I bring to you a way to Hackintosh your shiny new PC or laptop. What happens is that when you buy a computer with Windows pre-installed, specially nowadays, it will most probably come with UEFI technology and GPT partition scheme. All is beautiful, yeah, but what if you suddenly feel like doing some Hackintosh stuff? You have a beautifully working Windows installation, with all the correct default drivers.. Possibly you already lost a bunch of hours on that computer and don’t really feel like backing up every single file (specially if you are like me without any USB 3.0 HDD or USB) That was where I was and so I decided to roll up my sleeves and get the job done! Windows 8.1 or Win 10 PCs come with the following partition layout, since it is the one Microsoft recommends: You will have a Windows recovery tool partition 1st, then your EFI partition, then your MSR, which is not really really needed, and then your Windows NTFS Internal Drive’s Partition. Windows loves this setup, it really does like it, but Mac OS X simply cannot stand it. In Mac OS X, drives for a Hackintosh with Clover should be formatted in GUID (which is GPT but with a 200 or more MB EFI partition) So: With MiniTool Partition Wizard or Easus Partition Master you should perform the following operations: - Delete the small partition in the beginning of the HDD if you have it. It can appear with several names, in my case it was called Other. -Locate a partition that should be right beside the one quoted above, and check its size, if it is around 100-170 MB then that is your EFI. Keep it where it is for the moment. -Right beside the EFI you should have a 300MB partition , which happens to be the MSR. You can safely delete it too. -After that is done, move the EFI partition to the beginning of the HDD, and expand it to around 500 MB, that will leave more than enough space for CLOVER, with your kexts and for Microsoft’s boot loader. -Finally you can resize the Windows partition and create a new one in FAT32 format. Mac OS X will thank you (with its great performance over others, at least in my opinion) and love you for all you just did and accomplished. After all the changes are applied and you boot Windows successfully with the new Partition Layout, you should boot the OSX Installer, and format the FAT32 partition you just created and change it to HFS (Journaled) to install Mac OS X on it You will most probably end up with a setup like mine on this laptop, where : NO NAME, that is the EFI partition created by ASUS, I expanded it to 553 MB disk0s2, that is the Windows NTFS partition Then there is my Macintosh HD, as well as a Recovery HD, created afterwards, with Recovery Partition Creator 3.8 and Install OS X Mavericks .app from AppStore That should be about it, let me know if any doubt arises
  23. I need assistance, I have created a bootable usb with El Capitan 10.11.5 and Clover for UEFI boot only, installing the recommended defaults, i.e Install for uefi booting, Install Clover in the ESP, and Following another tutorial I also installed several kexts (FakeSMC, ApplePS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, NullCPUPowerManagement ) in EFI/Clover/kexts/10.1. directory. I have two SSD's installed, 1 has a windows 7 installation, and the other, the target drive for os x install. The os x install drive is pre formatted os x extended, journaled, GUID. The USB boots into the clover menu, and the target SSD is not visible, although the SSD with win 7 is. Booting from usb goes through all the way to the install El Capitan menu, but when I open disk utility to format the target drive, the drive is still not visible, only the boot USB shows and it is listed as an internal drive. There are two other entries listed on the disk utility screen, I have included pictures to illustrate. The bios version is f5. I have tried various settings in the bios and even tried reflashing it, but still no progress. My previous build was a core i7 sandy bridge on ga Z79x ud3P legacy f7 bios, running Mavericks, and it was rock solid, until it's sad demise, which drove me to try a newer build. Any advice on where I may have gone wrong would be very welcome.
  24. 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. :-(
  25. Hello, I installed Yosemite-Zone successfully into my Laptop without custom arguments, or kernel. Just the Clover's default args. So I restarted, and choose to boot OSX (through Clover) it restart without errors, same story with -v, -x, "no kext inject" and "ignore cache" (or something like that) always through Clover configuration menù. IDK if it has been removed but I never saw the Darwin Boot Loader not even in the installation. (I copied the Extra folder and the kernel from the Installation USB key to the Installed OSX) My spec: APU: AMD A6-4455M GFX: AMD Radeon HD 7500g MSB: Acer Havok V5-551 (UEFI Mode Enabled)
