  1. 1st Hackintosh ever! single hpxw8600 Xeon QC X5450 3.0Ghz 4gb Ram Settings -turned off all virtualization in BIOS -enabled combined SATA/IDE mode in BIOS -video worked with Graphics Enabler=Yes. -used an old version of BCM5722d for network. Having issues with connection dropping under heavy load, but I noticed an upgrade to the kext might fix that. -used latest voodoohda for sound. Issues: -tried with "separate ide controller setting" in BIOS first. Would only see IDE Hd. apparently mobo doesn't support full AHCI mode, and I can only get OS to see 1 sata hd in combined SATA/IDE mode. No fix yet, but working on it -had to apply the voodoohda half volume fix in .plist -used bootloader, had connection issues with imessage server. used chameleon wizard to fix -as mentioned above, broadcom nic drops connection under heavy load (bittorrent in particular), requires reboot. Will apply upgrade which will hopefully address this issue. Thank you to all those who have gone before and simplified this process so much. And to all the coders and testers, I appreciate all of effort and keep up the good work! If anyone wants further detail about specs, settings or issues, I can be more specific if needed. A side note: HP workstations are readily available on ebay, as companies upgrade and sell off excess inventory. I would highly recommend the xw8600, although others with different xeon cpu's including dual configurations might work just as well. I plan to add a 2nd cpu to my configuration, but am having trouble locating one with the exact stepping i need.
  2. Hello everyone! I'm new to the Hackintosh world so I guess I should start out with my computer specs Dell Presicion T1700 Intell® Xeon® CPU E3-1225 v3 @ 3.20GHz, 4 Core Sata is set to AHCI I create a Maverick install USB using MyHack and everything went well on that end but when i try and boot to the USB it starts the Read HFS+ file: and runs for about 3 seconds and then reboots, I try catching it with a camcorder but all I see is this line. I have tried all the recommended boot with arguments found here "http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/" with no luck, The only argument that seems to effect it is -f -v which is what i used to get to the point of the picture, if i do -v by itself or any other command it seems to reboot even faster. Any help would be very much appreciated!! Thanks In Advance
  3. Installed Xeon X5450 (s771converted to s775) on MB Gigabyte GA-EP43-S3L In Clover installed VoodooTSCSync.kext with IOCPUNumber - 7 (4 core) Boot fine with boot_args: npci=0x2000 cpus=1 but working only 1 core. If remove cpus=1 from boot_args, System appear bugs and freezes. How to start all 4 cores?
  4. Hi guys! Is it compatible Hackintosh with MacOS Sierra? Computer is this: Model: Fujitsu Celsius-R570-2 workstation CPU: Intel Xeon E5640 2-processors 2,66ghz 1366socket RAM: 24gb ddr3 ecc ram ( max 96gb) HDD: 500gb hdd Graphics: Nvidia quadro4000 2gb ddr5 256bit Thank you very much people!
  5. This isn't meant to be a detailed guide, as there are lot of good ones out there - it's a log of the components I used, quick summary of gotcha's and confirmation that they all function perfectly for folks with similar hardware. Relevant components: The board (and onboard components) and CPUs are nearly identical to an actual MacPro 3,1 which results in a hassle free hack. 1 x Intel S5000PSL Server Board 2 x Intel Xeon E5450 (3.0GHz Quad Core) 24GB IBM DDR2-667 FB-DIMMS Boot Disk - 1 x 500GB Samsung 840 Evo SATA SSD Fusion Drive Storage - 1 x 128GB Sandisk v300 SATA SSD + 1 x 2TB Seagate LP SATA HDD 1 X EVGA GeForce GTX760 Preamble: This board was running Lion for the longest while until my video card died - it sat idle for a few years, until I decided this weekend that my MacBook Air 1,1 isn't cutting it anymore (2GB ram and a 80GB PATA drive are sometimes painful). Mainboard, CPUs, memory and HDD made the transition, all other components are new. Will upgrade to Xeon E5/ C602 eventually, when whatever version of Civ is out decides to make this box crawl.. Installation method: Retail Mavericks.app from store, installer created on USB Latest Chameleon applied, Latest FakeSMC dropped in (both from repo's) Use Chameleon Wizard to create a SMBios.plist with a Mac3,1 profile Set SATA controller in BIOS to Legacy (else you'll have the Waiting for root device… error), disable on-board video. Boot flags "npci=0x2000 DropSSDT=yes" Install, reboot, install Chameleon+FakeSMC, rejoice! What works out-of-box: Everything! PM natively supported (although these Xeons don't clock down that much just to 2GHz) Shutdown/ reboot works NICs natively supported What does not work: Sleep - this is not because of OSX, the main board DOES NOT support the S3 state (server board). I spent $40 on "Power Manager" to get it to shutdown after inactivity, but someone smarter could probably write a script. There's an Intel S5000XVN workstation board which uses identical components and does support S3 (untested, YMMV). For some reason it won't boot in AHCI mode without the "-f" flag - it seems like the kernel cache doesn't cache the AHCIPortInjector.kext (maybe because it's only a plist?). It would be irritating if I was booting from a HDD, but with an SDD it barely adds 5 seconds to boot. Tweaks: If you have SSDs like me and want TRIM, you'll need to fix up the storage controller. Drop in AHCIPortInjector.kext (from repo) to get the Intel ESB south bridge detected properly, add "-f" to your boot flags, change Storage controller to AHCI in BIOS, and away you go. Use TRIM Enabler/ TRIM script to get TRIM for generic SSDs Use "BuiltInEthernet=Yes" to get rid of any annoying AppStore errors - this can also be fixed by adding them to the DSDT under PCIQ (tested, works). I'm running it without a DSDT though and all is well. Installed nVidia drivers for my card to get some flakiness with my 144Hz monitor sorted. Summary: Extremely easy install Low maintenance build - upgraded from 10.9.0 to 10.9.4 without issues. Don't expect to have any ever, since all the hardware is natively supported. If you have this hardware lying around (or can get it free/cheap), it makes for a nifty, zippy low-maintenance workstation. I wouldn't recommend spending more than $300 though for board/CPUs/memory. As with all Intel server boards, the boots are slow - all their server boards take about 45sec just to do the BIOS POST. It's also a bit of a power hog (80W x 2 for 8-cores) - probably better alternatives out there if you're buying new gear. I'm not bothering to post any files since everything I used was directly from the repos, but will if requested. ~trini
  6. Ciao a tutti, vendo questa scheda per inutilizzo. E' perfetta, l'avevo presa come backup della mia ma non ne ho mai avuto bisogno. Permette di montare processori con socket 1366 e regge fino a 192GB di RAM. Per le specifiche vi rimando al sito intel Io la uso con due Xeon e5620 eh ho un Geekbench di 15200 Il prezzo è piuttosto modesto, chiedo 100€ + spese di spedizione. Ho la scatola originale e la fattura di acquisto nel caso possa essere utile
  7. Hey guys, I'd like to share my Mufasa build with everyone! While this isn't the most powerful SR-2 build out there, I think a lot of people would enjoy seeing the machine, regardless! This machine consists of: • 2 x 6-core Xeon x5650 processors • EVGA SR-2 Motherboard • 48GB G.Skill Ripjaw memory • 1 x GTX 690 GPU • Thermaltake Grand 1200W power supply • Corsair Force GT 120Gb SSD • WD 1TB Red HDD • Ethernet PCI card • FireWire 400/800 PCI card • 2 x Thermaltake Frio CPU coolers • Lian-Li PC-A76X Case (Not the exact case, but closest match since Amazon stopped carrying the case I used) Now, here are some pictures: The parts have arrived! This is always the most exciting part of building a new system! The SR-2 really is a beautiful board. The PCI slots offer tons of expansion, there's a good number of SATA ports, etc. I only wish there was a higher memory limit (48GB is the max), and the rear I/O could have used a few more options, such as FireWire. The color scheme looks really nice, as well. I built this system live via my website, so of course, there were a whole bunch of live fails I ended up needing to change the backplate that came on the SR-2 to allow the Frio coolers to fit. Aside from that, the case simply didn't have all that great of cable management. I decided not to go with liquid cooling, as these air coolers were very highly rated, as well as budget constraints (this was a pricey build as it was). Liquid cooling may make its way to this build in the future, though. I decided to go with a GTX 690 for this build. Although OS X doesn't take full advantage of this dual GPU card, there was going to be some work done on the Windows side of things, which would be able to utilize the GPU more than OS X. With that said, the card would still be able to perform quite well within OS X, plus I got a pretty sweet deal off eBay for a next to brand-new card. After some hard work out of the case, the system seems to be performing great! The machine posts just fine, OS X can be installed, etc. The Frio coolers blend right in with the black and red color scheme of the board, and even offer a nice white accent with the actual fan. I also felt that blue memory would be a nice accent to an otherwise black and red machine. Once I got the blue memory in there, there were times I liked it, and other times I didn't. More on the memory in a bit. Well, remember that memory I was just talking about? After putting the machine in the case and tidying up the wires, I boot the machine on, boot into OS X, and what do you know; only 32GB of memory is being recognized. I booted into Windows, and the same thing was happening. This isn't good. Time to do some diagnostics. After booting it up a few times out of the case, it seemed to boot just fine every single time. This led me to believe that it had something to do with the case. After removing all un-necessary motherboard mounts, the system now boots up just fine! **If you get anything from this post, it's this sentence; always, always remove un-needed motherboard mounts.** After removing the mounts, the system then booted up great within the case! :wink2: I also decided to go with different memory, which is where the aforementioned G.Skill Ripjaw memory comes into place. This is pretty close to the completed built, but some tests were still being run: Once all of the kinks were out of the way, I was left with a pretty awesome looking & performing hackintosh! I always loved the look of the Windows CPU meter gadget when under a full load, but with all of these threads, it's better than seeing a real rainbow! I have some additional videos on my YouTube channel regarding this machine if you want to see some more of Mufasa! I have videos of a tour of the hardware, as well as the benchmarks right below: • • Thanks for reading, and be sure to let me know if you have any questions!
  8. firstly, im new, is this the right place to put this? also im new, so any help at all would be good Ive been looking at second hand servers on ebay, mostly 2006 or newer dell poweredge or Hp proliant. what are my chances of getting OSX running on one of these systems, preferably lion. i was thinking of using myHack. will this run, all the systems are Xeon processors and i read somewhere that mac and Xeon dont get along,
  9. Hello all ! I'm a french newbie on hackintosh steps and I want to share my first experience. First time follow this tutorial : http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/ --> For the SMBios I have selected MacPro 4.1 Once you have your hack installed with your dsdt extracted and the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext deleted ... You need Network works first : Install my legacy --> Intel82574LZ8naD6.kext with kext utility (it add the 0x10D38086 String to IOPCIMatch) Now you need sound for the Asus MIO card : Install AppleHDA.kext with kext utility If you have a bug with your ATI like a GHOST screen (two display but you have just 1 monitor connected) ... : Install ATI5000Controller.kext with kext utility (if doesn't work ... do yourself : http://www.tonymacx8...html#post512322 ). The IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext is in order to have the good HD icon .. not like an external disk. Here is my org.chameleon.Boot.plist : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>AtiConfig</key> <string>Hoolock</string> <key>EnableC3State</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> <key>KeyLayout</key> <string>mac-fr</string> </dict> </plist> PS : No modification on my DSDT extracted ... Personnal tips : On updates your kexts maybe erased like AppleHDA etc ... My simple things is to do that on terminal : (tild) $ sudo crontab -e in this window put that : #m h dom mon dow command 0 2 * * * cp -rf /patched-z8na/AppleHDA.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext 1 2 * * * chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext 0 3 * * * cp -rf /patched-z8na/ATI5000Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ATI5000Controller.kext 1 3 * * * chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ATI5000Controller.kext You need a folder on root named : /patched-z8na and both kext AppleHDA.kext and ATI5000Controller.kext inside... What this lines do ? This is a simple task daily : at 2:00 copy AppleHDA at 2:01 change the owner of AppleHDA at 3:00 copy ATI5000Controller at 3:01 change the owner of ATI5000Controller Have fun.

  10. Hi all, I'm going to set up my new hackintosh (signaure, Z8NA based). I fixed some common iusses like: shutdown, speedstep, SMBus, OpenCL, etc... (working for sleep) My main problem now is represented by a wrong cpus number in DSDTEditor: My processors have 6 cores, so I should have 24 virtual cores. Why 32 ? Some help about this ? I've some patch on my DSDT: -DTGP -LPC ICH10 -SHUTDOWN -GFX Injection Then I fixed SMBus provider iusse with this.

  12. Hi, I would like to ask for little help. In "about this Mac" my processor is not correctly recognized and is showing as an Intel Core i7 instead of Xeon E3... My build is using latest Clover, everything is working, sleep etc. Smbios I used iMac14,2 because it is the closest Haswell model to mine. Can anyone please help me to correct this issue? Thanks a lot.
  13. Hi guys, I've been running a few years using a DSDT that Maldon originally helped me patch when I was running 667mhz fsb 5400 series Xeons (5430's) & 667mhz fb-dimms. I now have 5462's and 8 sticks of 800mhz FB-dimms, and I keep burning the damn things out when booted to OSX for any period of time. In reading & coming up to speed, I noticed Maldon's older tool that I used before has locked threads now (DSDT auto-patcher) and so want to go about figuring out the current best strategy. RTC? EHCI? Swap the pci root device issue? etc... But before that, what is the most current set of utils to use to dump my tables from Windows so I can get the most current PCI/PCIe device tree and hopefully account for the different cpu's & ram that I have now? Thanks for any help and I'm willing to expand this topic as needed if I learn enough as I go...
