    Xeon E5450 with Nvidia GPU glitch

    Hi guys, I have a weird problem using an Xeon E5450(775 modded) with nvidia card(8600gt & Quadro 580 FX same problem). First I want to say that in windows I don't have any problem, so it's not something about compatibility. When I try to boot in macOS with this cpu and nvidia video card I get only a glitch displayed(see attachments), the computer isn't froze, I can access it with ssh or file sharing, only no image. If I boot with nv_disable=1 flag I get image(no acceleration of course) and everything's fine. I tried the cpu on 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards and the problem is the same. With amd video card I don't have this problem. What I tried and failed: Deleting injection from dsdt and injecting or not injecting with clover. Using nvidia web drivers. Changing CPU settings from bios, like virtualisation, speedstep etc. Different macos versions(10.11, 10.12, 10.13) The hack I want to use with this CPU is the Desktop from signature, I can provide dsdt or entire efi if it's needed but I don't think it matters since I have the same problem with 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards.

  8. Guys, I am trying to upgrade old LGA775 P5Q board with new processor. It is Xeon L5430 with adapter. It is working perfectly under Windows since I've updated microcodes in BIOS. Bios I am using is so called 5th Year anniversary mode BIOS. Dual core E4400 is absolutely fine with the setup. So far i don't have problems with running it on Clover 10.10(tweaked) or 10.11(vanilla config with only latest FakeSMC) on e4400 but Xeon gives me checkered screen after initial apple on black loading screen on both installs. Black has fuzzy RGB dots. Any ideas what this can be or how to troubleshoot that? Thank you.
  9. Hello. I am using VMWare Player 12 (Workstation 7.1) on Windows Server 2008 x64 (I know, irrelevant). The CPU of the system is an old Xeon 5150. I have masked the CPU in vmx file with the following value: cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" On an attempt to boot, I get the following kernel panic error: The SecurAble tool shows this: Is there any chance I could run Sierra on this hardware? Thank you in advance.
  10. Problem after upgrade to Intel Xeon I have a desktop computer: Now installed a processor Intel Xeon E5410, previously used the Celeron DualCore E1400 Gigabyte GA-EP41-UD3L http://www.gigabyte.pl/products/page/mb/ga-ep41-ud3l_10/overview/ Nvidia GeForce 9400GT I made a successful installation Xeon processor in the LGA775 socket. Xeon is typically designed for socket LGA771. But there is a trick, a way to correct Working Xeon and Socket LGA775 http://www.delidded.com/lga-771-to-775-adapter/ I changed the old processor and now under Windows and Linux everything works OK. Before changing the CPU my hackintosh also worked OK. But after installing Xeon hackintosh with El Capitan I have a problem - as in this picture "pixels" (when you should see the desktop system). The question I have to point out the important. Earlier, before changing the CPU all OK I worked in a hackintosh, for example graphics card worked OK with EFI String and Clover. This my computer as a hackintosh use since 2009 and over the years I have it very well configured to run hackintosh. I read on the internet that Xeon E5410 should probably work OK in hackintosh because it is used in real macintosh. Graphics card may not be a problem if previously worked OK with EFI String, I changed only the CPU, not the graphics card. Please see my config.plist from Clover http://pastebin.com/ERfV4Na0 Please very experts for advice, to review the config.plist what wrong I have set, I have to remove, add or change What can I change in my confing.plist in Clover which is associated with the processor Xeon? As was mentioned only processor to be configured differently config.plist clover in the context of the Xeon processor. Thank you very much for your help. If you do not fix this problem then I will have to insert the previous Celeron processor instead of Xeon to me working hackintosh. config-plist.zip
  11. 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?
  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. 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!
  14. I'm getting kernel panic when trying to install El Capitan on dell xps 430, Intel Xeon x2210 and Nvidia 9600. I'm using Clover. I aslo tried booting with cpus=1 bit it didn't change anything. Here is a pic

  18. I got a couple of used XServes for super cheap on eBay. I am going to use one as a VMWare Server for remote employees. The other will be a simple file server since I can do both SMB and AFP as opposed to our Win SBS 2011 server which can only do SMB. The one that will be for virtual machines I felt that I would need a little more power to handle the out of office employees. I bought a pair of Xeon e5345 CPUs for $40.00 on eBay and they certainly did the trick. Here are the before and after Geekbench results Before - http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/1814845 After - http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/1533559 Quite an improvement in my opinion. Went from four total cores to eight. As temps go; idle temps are around 35-42c. I also used Arctic Silver 5. OSX System Profiler does not recognize the CPU name. It gets the number of cores and speed right but it lists "Unknown" as the name. However, Geekbench and the virtual machines both see the CPU speed and name correctly. For $40 this was a great upgrade.
  19. 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

This is must, after 10.9.1 the support to LSI SAS controller is removed; On your Mac, use myHack (you can get it http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/) to create a USB installer, for which you will need at 8GB stick; Change hardware settings of HP Z800 to make all your SSD and HDD connected to SAS port instead of SATA port (which won’t be recognized). Remove unnecessary component from HP Z800. Change the bios setting of HP Z800 to disable vt-d and make sure booting from LSI is enabled (press ctrl+c during booting to access LSI interface); Insert your USB installer to HP Z800 and use following boot flag “GraphicsEnabler=no PCIRootUID=0 -v -f”. The first two flags we used for the GTX 760 graphic card and “-f” disable kernel cache; Follow the install instruction of the Apple. Approaching to completion, myHack will indicate you to remove some kexts, press “yes” to all of them; After installation is completed, remove the USB installer from HP Z800; Boot HP Z800 to the Mavericks just installed and follow all the instruction; In your system, change boot flag in /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist Benchmark
  21. Hi, guys, help is needed. I am trying to install Yosemite (14a389) to my HP z800 workstation, which has two Intel Xeon E5520 CPU and 96 GB ram. However, I am stuck at this screen and followed by a black screen (the screen is totally off). To install it, I have installed only one SSD (tried on both SATA and SAS port, which is recognized by bios) and Nvidia GTX 760. For install, I used the latest chamelon (on a USB thumb drive) for boot and another SSD for install file disk. Boot arguments: 1. -v -f kext-dev-mode=1 2. -v -f kext-dev-mode=1 npci=0x2000 The hardware specs: Chipset Intel 5520 2x Intel Xeon E5520, 2.26 GHz, 8 MB cache, 1066 MHz Memory, 5.86 GT/s QPI, 80W 96 GB (12x8 GB) DDR3-1333 ECC Registered RAM 2-CPU Nvidia GTX 760 Thanks!
  22. 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
  23. Hey folks, a few years ago i installed the iAtkos L2 on a super micro x7dal dual xeon e5420 ( non- hyper threaded) ; everything worked fine. I recently upgraded hardware to a super micro x8dti-ln4 with dual x5670's ( hyper threading capable cpu). Since i had a bunch of stuff installed and configured for the original hardware, I moved the HD as is to the "new" hardware and it booted just fine; however, the mac designation is still "mac pro early 2008" and only 12 cores (2 x 6 core cpus) showing up. The "new" cpus are hyperthread capable and the macosx should show 24 cores under the cpu usage window. My question is how do i update the SMBios (or which ever) to: 1) enable hyperthreading of the new xeon X5670's 2) show that this is a macpro 4,1 or 5,1 late 2010 thanks in advance
  24. 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.
  25. Hi All, I've been struggling for a while trying to get any throttling of my Xeon E5-2620 (v1 thus Sandy Bridge). Using Asus P9X79WS, 10.9.2 (13C64, the release version), and RampageDev's clean SSDT-based installation with updated FakeSMC. Using PikeRAlpha's ssdtPRgen script (newest revisions), with various settings. Pike kindly added the v1 definitions for me, but I'd been hand-jamming them before. Tried without and with explicitly forcing SB cpu (-c 0) and xcpm (-w). Nothing I do budges the speed from 20x. Nothing lower unless I use NullCPU (then it naturally throttles between 12x and 20x). No turbo no matter what I do (yes, I specified -turbo 2500 with ssdtPRgen). 1. Has anyone got this chip (or very similar) to work? Esp. with the new PM methodology in Mavericks? 2. Any general hints in troubleshooting? I've re-done the installation and script gen fairly carefully, but I can't help but feel I'm missing something. Perhaps SB has just fallen into a gap in support and everyone is working only on the IB models as they're more focused on enthusiast home use (I do understand why, just that my use case is different and I bought back when V1 was out). Thanks much for any tips! David PS. Here is my SSDT-1 as of today: SSDT-1 as of 20140315
