  1. Hello, My desktop Hackintosh is running macOS Mojave 10.14.2 with two dedicated GPUs installed: NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti, AMD Radeon HD 7970. The AMD GPU is used primarily under macOS and the NVIDIA one under Windows. macOS boots without issues as long as there are no displays connected to the NVIDIA GPU. If a display is connected then the display connected to the AMD GPU will become blank. The system can be accessed using Screen Sharing/VNC. There are no problems if I swap PCI-e slots for the GPUs so that the AMD GPU is in the first slot (primary GPU), but I prefer not to do this. I have tried to remove the whole PCI (bridge) device in the DSDT file and all the lines that refer to it. The PCI entries in ioreg and System Information are gone but System Information still shows an NVIDIA GPU under Graphics/Display. Many of the suggestions I have found in guides and forum posts do not seem to apply here. My problem with some of the guides and answers is that they give the solution without explaining how anything works, or they tell you what to do without explaining the reasons behind it. What else can I do? Thank you for any assistance you can provide! I have attached some files that may help you help me. DSDT_BIOS_3101.zip contains the original ACPI (*.aml) files without any patches. Send me Steffens-iMac.zip is a file produced by RunMe.app, and do contain simple patches to rename some devices. DSDT.dsl.patch is a diff of the original DSDT.dsl file and the one with the PCI devices removed (commented out). Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Extreme (X99), BIOS version 3101 (macOS does not boot with anything newer). Clover version: 4813.

  2. This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing: My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done! The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC! BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus Ellesmere.kext.zip

    R9 380 fully work in Sierra

    r9 380 (a.k.a r9 285) used to work OOB on Yosemite, but became very problematic after El Capitan release booting to black screen. Finally, I managed to make it work under Sierra without any compromises. Graphics acceleration, OpenCL, Metal, sleep, audio via DP...all tested & confirmed to be working. In short, I had to do some ACPI patching, to get video out from my card. I still have to use my iGPU as a helper card, but fortunately NOT in "headless" mode. So I got image output & full acceleration from my iGPU too, don't have to blind boot or switch monitor cables during boot time. You know, it just works To confirm that everything works properly, I used FractalArchitect4 (its OpenCL & Metal built-in test tool), OpenGL Extensions Viewer, GeekBench (OpenCL), Final Cut X (OpenCL? Metal?) and After Effects (2017 version use GPU for compositing & accelerating some filters). I tested dGPU & iGPU separately. They work in each scenario properly, stabile & as fast as expected. Below are details of my machine and config. My specs: cpu i7 4790 (iGPU HD 4600) motherboard Gigabyte Z97-D3H mem 16 gb 1600 Mhz MSI r9 380 4gb - four ports (DP, HDMI, DVI, DVI), exactly matches layout of framebuffer Lagotto Couple SSD & hard drives Clover v4097 First, BIOS settings.

    AMD 7750 (7770, 7xxxx) fixture for Mojave

    I have bought a 2nd hand AMD Radeon 7750 to fix my Mojave installation problems. Although the Vendor/Device Id is in AMD7000Controller.Kext, I get a black screen and with some changes a yellow screen. I can not find any useful information to fix that. All information are for High Sierra and older macOS versions. Is there any fix to resolve that? What if I buy an RX 650 for example?

    AMD Athlon X4 631

    hi I have this build: - AMD Athlon X4 631 - ASRock A75M-HVS (link) - AMD HD 6670 - 8GB DDR3 - 250GB HDD Which version of MacOS can I install? Which kernel?
  8. I know that it is almost impossible to install any os x on AMD APU netbooks, but i am hoping that someone could help me here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  9. Hi, I tried during last 4 days almost everything but now I call for help. I have RX560 running on 10.13.4. Previously I was running it on 10.12.6 and had the same problem, but after waking from sleep my thiord display came to life, but it is not working anymore on 10.13.4. Without or with Lilu & Whatewergreen my system correctly recognize my gpu as RX560 but only 2 of 3 displays are displaying content, third display is black but recieving some signal. When I change cabling and connect only two, any combination of 2 displays is working. System profiller and system preferences are sayin I have 3 displays connected.Please can somebody help me to figure it out?Thanks a lot in advance. Tried to upload my ioreg but it is greater than 10MB allowed for me :(
  10. Hi all guys I need your help and I hope you can help me I took the road to install High Sierra on my new build and now I have some doubt / difficulty I do not know how to solve. My configuration: 8700K Asrock Z370 Professional Gaming i7 AMD RX580 Nitro+ 8GB First I created the usb pendrive and I used Clover with the following configurations: Bootflag: dart=0 -v Kext: Bios Setting: VT-d = Disabled Share Memory = 128MB IGPU Multi-Monitor = Enabled XHCI Hand-off = Enabled SMBIOS: iMac18,3 So far no problem, it started successfully, I initialized the hdd in APFS and I ran the installation. Once finished, it started and I made the first configuration successfully. At this point I configured Clover the same way as the installation: Bootflag: dart=0 disablegfxfirmware shikigva=4 -rad4200 darkwake=8 Devices: Graphics: Kernel and Kext Patches: SMBIOS: iMac18,3 Kext: I reboot and start without problems, but I know there is some problem to solve ... for example, the video card seems to recognize it but if I run a benchmark with "Novabench" I noticed that the GPU is recognized as 1GB: With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": || || || I tried to delete "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled" and I recognize the card differently but the same problem presents itself: || || || Why is it recognized by 1GB instead of 8GB? While on System Profiler is recognized by 8GB .... I'm doing something wrong? I tried to enable also "Hardware Encoding & HEVC Support" but I noticed a detail that I do not know if it's right or not (Hardware Info "MacX Video Converter Pro"): Without "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled": With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": [COMING SOON SCREENSHOT] Is it normal that this occurs? Which one is correct? I'm going completely in confusion I'm trying to figure out if I need to make any other changes to the system, if I add some other patches to make it work properly but I do not know where to check. I'm trying to configure the DSDT but DSDT Editor and MaciASL do not work, they do not open the DSDT.aml file generated by AIDA64. Do you know how to give me a hand? I'm banging my head for 2 days I thank you in advance for the help and I apologize for my english I hope I was clear

  12. How to make AppleHDAController load on Ryzen boards? Rename(/add) your audio controller to your DSDT/SSDT as HDEF Add a _DSM method to your HDEF device with layout id 1 Patch the AppleHDAController binary, because it has a static table containing the supported PCI Vendor/DeviceID pairs and it also checks the VendorID against known values. As an example I provide a dif file and patched 10.13.3 binary, but if you want to I can patch the binary for other versions. After AppleHDAController loads to actually get sound working you need to patch AppleHDA.kext for the codec on your board. First I tried to use Lilu+AppleALC for this task, but for some reason it refused to work. (I might look into it later why) But for the time being it was easier to use toleda's cloverALC script for that, but to make it work I had to change(/remove) the specified location of the HDEF device from the script. And for some reason it also required me to mount the EFI partition manually. Change this: if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF@1") != 0 ]]; then Into this: if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF") != 0 ]]; then AppleHDAController_Patched10.13.3 AppleHDAController-10.13.3-AMD.bdiff

  14. Hiya everyone, With some help of the excellent guides on this forum (thanks so much for that, it is great for newbies!) I managed to get my first Hackintosh running. I am now writing this from OSX 10.7.2. I love it. I'm just having a few minor issues that I'd like to solve, and I hoped you guys could help me out! (yes, I did do research and checked the forums, but I couldn't find anything yet.) Whenever I boot my Mac, it either gets stuck after DSMOS has arrived and it says "NTFS Volume etc.", or it takes a long time and then eventually boots up the GUI. Also, when it finally boots (this usually takes 3 minutes from the point it reads "NTFS") I see the GUI, and all the programs initialize (like Spotify etc.) and my mouse moves, but clicking or typing on the keyboard doesn't work for about a minute. I'd hope to solve that, just like the following problem: Sometimes, and this more often doesn't work than does, when I try to copy something from 1 place to another, the copy dialog comes up, but it'll read "Zero bytes from ...", and stay like that. Clicking Stop doesn't stop it, the only stopping is done true "killlall Finder" in the Terminal. Also, Text Edit doesn't start up, but this is not such a problem. My system: AMD Athlon x4 640 AsRock M3A770DE (AMD 770 NB, SB710) 4GB ram, ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GT 430. I have installed iAtkos L2 through installing Snow Leopard first, then running the Lion installer and replacing the mach_kernel by this one: http://www.osx86.net...md!!!!!!!!.html (version4, that's what the guide I used, http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/278181-amd-1073-guide-experimental-only/, recommended) The boot flags I use are as follows (yes, I also run it in verbose mode for the time being) : -legacy -v arch=i386 npci=0x3000 I hope you guys could help me out getting my Lion to run stable, would be great! Thanks in advance, Daan
  15. Hello Hello! So a quick backstory so you all can understand my situation: I owned a MacBook Pro for 6 ish years and it's logic board up and died last month sometime. The thing is, I'm a musician and have several recording projects that I have been using my Mac for (countless hours of recordings) that are still on my old hard drive (along with 6 years worth of other {censored}) that I want to be able to access. Several weeks before my Mac died, I built a new PC for gaming and didn't intend on relying solely on it for all my computer needs so I hadn't looked into a hackintosh/OSx86 option before buying hardware. Thus explains my mish-mashed collection of hardware on my current build, which is: (CPU) AMD FX Quad-Core 4350 (Motherboard) Gigabyte 990-fxa-ud3 (Graphics) NVidia EVGA Geforce GTX 750 Ti SC *if there is any other info I need to supply, just let me know. So, yeah, anywho, without the finances to buy a new Mac right now, I've been struggling and digging through forums, google searching and the like trying to get an up and running OSx on my PC and have gotten close but oh so far away. I never wanted to turn to bothering people about it but I'm at a loss and need some direction. Let me tell you what I have tried so far, and what problems I've run into: So I had a semi-successful install of Mavericks via Niresh and the "beasts" from "you know who" (I've read enough of these forums to know not to mention them outright). I couldn't seem to get full graphics acceleration with it though (even with GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No) and even after it eventually recognized my GPU. But could not for the life of me get wireless working. I tried a ton of different kexts and an injectors related to my wireless card (previoulsy Rosewill RNX-N150PCe, now a Rosewill N900PCE, which is supposed to work with OSx OOB but still doesn't work) no results! These two problems make it impossible to try to run Logic Pro and any other application really without going insane. Anywho, I then started figuring a Vanilla install with Yosemite would be my best option, but can't for the life or me even get to the OSx install screen. I've tried various methods, most recently this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-updated-for-mavericks-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/ All this with an InstallOSx.app of Yosemite downloaded from the app store - it's most likely 10.10.5, if that matters. The most common problem I run into is when I am trying to boot from my USB Installer I just made, it will just straight reboot. When I did -v on my most recent attempt after following rockinron_1's guide I listed above it rebooted after showing this (first attachment) If I have gotten past this I just get kernel panics (second attachment) despite any bootflags I seem to shove in there. Any help is appreciated! Again, just let me know what other info I need to provide, if any. I thank you in advance for your time and effort.

    YOSEMITE Pre and Post Install

    Hi, everyone. I'm new here but I've have read some posts and information that is useful for the purpose. Im currently aiming to install Yosemite on my AMD pc, I have available a 16gb USB Drive and a MacBook Air for preparation files or that kind. Current setup: Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3 AMD Radeon 5770 8gb (2x4b) KINGSTON 600w Power Supply USB Mouse & Keyboard PCI-e WiFi Card (realtek) Any help would be helpful and any guide would be welcome, thanks a lot.
  17. Hey everyone I have spend my last 3 days watching every youtube video, fourm, blog and have tried every which way to get Mac OS X onto my computer, now I know it's not my computer cause people that have the same motherboard and processor are having luck. I have downloaded and tried a TON of different Snow Leopard.iso files and none of which work to any extent, the furthest I am able to get is to a Kernel Panic. something like this appears: nfs_boot_init failed Networking is not initialized Backtrace terminated invalid rame pointer I was using Darwine, now from recent blogs and fourms I was told to use the "Chocolate Kernel" Because the darwine kernel won't work with AMD, I need help finding a download that will work on my Computer that has the Chocolate Kernal instead of the darwine or Vanilla Kernal. And all my other .iso installation cd's keep saying "still waiting for boot device" So I'm going to stick with the one that gives me a panic, just because it gets me further then the other ones. My computer won't even boot into the installation part of everything, I get to the part where i put -v then i have a black screen then thats when i get my panic, i get my panic from a Darwine kernel, so maybe I need the chocolate kernal, snow leopard iso, I cant find it nor do I know how to change kernels on the intallations cd's. Someone please help me. I also don't care what version of snow leopard it is as long as it will get the OS X on my computer and I don't want to use any of that VMWare {censored}! Once I have snow leopard OS X 10.6.X installed succesfully I plan on doing an upgrade to OS X Lion, PLease someone help me. My Computer Information: OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit System Manufacturer: Biostar System Model:N68S3B Processor: Amd Phenom II X4 820 2800Mhz(4 Cores) Bios Version: 08.00.15 Smbios: 2.6 Ram: 4gb DDR3 Ram HDD: 1TB Internal Sata Hard Drive CD/DVD: Sata DVD RW Drive Graphics: ATI Radeon HD5450 1GB graphics card P.S. I hope this is enought information for you to figure out what is going on. Both my cd drive and hard drive are both sata, thats not a problem it just means i type rd=Disk0, it being sata does not alter the boot process its the kernel. Please help. I'm actually pretty smart when it comes to computers so i can understand computer talk and can follow quit easily, but i have hit a stop in the road and I am stumped.
  18. Hey all, I have a PC with the following AMD FX 6300 CPU Gigabyte 78-LMT-USB3 Mobo Sapphire Nitro RX 460 (4GB) Sierra is installed, and runs fine with these flags: UseKernelCache=No -f -v -x npci=0x2000 But if I try to use UseKernelCache=No -f -v npci=0x2000 Sierra freezes after DSMOS arrives Images: Safe Boot: Freezing after DSMOS: I'm using Enoch and Sierra GM (10.12.0) I've removed these kexts from /S/L/E pmtelemetry.kext AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext AppleTyMCEDriver.kext Kernel is 10.12.0 beta from Bronya, with /S/L/E/System.kext replaced by Bronya's copy. I haven't as yet merged the frameworks, but will be doing so in the next 10 minutes. Any ideas? What I've done so far: - Merged frameworks, no changes when booting normally, or in safe mode. - Updated FakeSMC to latest RehabMan build, no change when booting normally, or in safe mode - Updated SMBios to MacPro5,1 from iMac17,1. No change when booting normally, or in safe mode
  19. Hello world. OK, so I have been trying to install 10.7.3 on my computer... But I can't get to the install, or GUI for that matter. Now, this is not my first time hackintoshing. I'm going to spare the long story, but... AMD hackintoshing is a 'process'. I've successfully installed Snow Leopard (10.6.2, took a few days), and haven't successfully installed Mountain Lion... So, I boot from the DVD, and it says something along the lines of "Press any key to boot, or F8 to define boot options"... Something like that. Anyway, I press F8, and type in: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v And it starts loading, and then reboots. It doesn't even reach the console. It just instantly reboots. If I don't type anything in, and press enter, it waits for about 2 seconds, the screen flashes white, and it reboots. I've tried removing the graphics card, removing ram, GraphicsEnabler=no, npci=2x000.... And my BIOS settings are as accurate as they get. I don't have the option to set the sleep state to S3, and no AHCI option. I have my SATA mode set as 'Native IDE Mode'... HPET is enabled. Any ideas? Thanks. Specs in sig.

    Getting CPU id right

    Hi, I have Yosemite 10.10.5 installed on a FX 6300. In "About this Mac" tab it shows Unknown. I know that I can easily fix this by injecting CPU type in Clover, but I couldn't find anywhere the list of intel CPU id's. I think I'd need some 6 core Xeon id.

    Help Required

    Hello, It's been a while since I last attempted to install OS X on some hardware and in honesty I'm confused about what to do with an AMD cpu If someone could help me identify which bootloader and kexts to use etc. I would greatly appreciate it. Specs: CPU - AMD FX-6350 GPU - Gainward GTX 660 2GB Motherboard - MSI 970 Gaming - http://www.msi.com/p...l#hero-overview RAM - 8GB of assorted budget DDR3 RAM I'm hoping to run the latest release of OS X which I believe at present is 10.10.5 Again , thank you for any help given
  23. Hi, Am looking for some help really.... I have a working install of Snow Leopard on my AMD 1090T X6, M4N98TD Evo board with 4GB of usable RAM. However it is only 32bit and I have recently upgraded my Graphics Card from a GTX470 to a GTX660 after spilling water in my case!! I managed to get the GTX470 to work properly by editing the Graphics Management Kext and by installing CUDA and Nvidia Drivers. however all my attempts with the GTX660 have failed. I can get 1920x1080x32@60 but it has a black border, when I try to install programmes, it says that I need more VRAM, system profiler says I have 3MB of VRAM, on a 2GB card!! I also have a downloaded copy of the LION app, when I run it, it says you need INTEL, etc. System profiler sees my CPU as a 6 core XEON, but the app doesn't!! So - any way to get the GTX 660 to work or any way to get the LION app to install on this system??? Please help? Many Thanks
  24. Title says it all. I have an R9 390 working great on Sierra thanks to cyberdevs on this forum. That being said, I still have no audio and have "No Audio devices" in settings and system report. I'm running a displayport cable from the R9 390 to my monitor, an XR341CK, and was hoping to get audio from the built-in speakers. Anyone have any ideas? I've already tried installing the RealtecALC.kext for the ALC887 codec in S/L/E. Running this via onboard audio on my ASUS B150M-A mobo. Thank you in advanced - lord knows this forum has saved me from plenty of headaches.
