  1. 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
  2. Introduction This is a step-by-step guide for installing macOS Sierra 10.12.x on ASRock H170M-ITX/ac utilizing the onboard Intel HD530 GPU. Sorry for not elaborating like you’re reading a novel of some sort, but I think this is for your own benefit. Here are the details of my personal build: - ASRock H170M-ITX/ac (BIOS v7.00) - Core i3-6100 @ 3.7GHz - 16GB RAM @ 2133MHz - Onboard HD530 via HDMI - Mini PCIe BCM94352HMB Wifi+BT My experience with this system after 4 - 5 months of daily development usage (Xcode, Web etc.) is this: It's most definitely a very stable system if you don't mind the well known Hackintosh plague, which is the absence of Sleep functionality. Highly recommended. Prerequisites - Maccie, a working Macintosh or Hackintosh computer, or even a macOS VM on Windows. - Hackie, your to-be Hackintosh computer. - Installie, a USB disk with capacity of 16GB or more. Create the Install Disk A) Download Install macOS Sierra.app from the AppStore on Maccie. Insert a USB disk on Maccie and open Disk Utility. Select your USB disk, select Erase, add Installie as its name and press Erase. C) Run the following command from Terminal: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Installie --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction D) Once more, rename your USB disk to Installie and execute Clover_v2.4k_r4049.pkg. Select Installie USB disk as target, then proceed to the customization step. E) Select nothing but Install for UEFI booting only, Install Clover in the ESP, and OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 from Drivers64UEFI menu. F) Installie's EFI partition is now mounted. Overwrite EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with the config.plist file attached to this post. G) Copy all attached kexts to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other, copy SSDT-2.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. OS X Installation H) Your Installie USB disk is now ready, plug it in on Hackie. I) Press Del key to enter Hackie’s BIOS. On the Exit menu, execute Load UEFI Defaults, then enable XHCI Handoff. J) On Boot menu, set your first boot device to UEFI: BrandName XYZ, Partition 1. Save everything and exit. K) On Clover menu, select the macOS Installer entry, and after a couple of minutes you should be in the macOS Sierra installer. L) Open Disk Utility, and format Hackie's internal HDD or SDD just like on step B, but this time name it Macintosh HD. M) Continue with the installation on Macintosh HD until Hackie is restarted. Then, the second part of the installation will continue. N) On the last restart, this time boot from your newly created Macintosh HD. Finalize O) With some luck you should be now customizing your Hackie's first run. P) Repeat steps D, E, F, G but this time make sure you apply everything on Macintosh HD. Q) Remove Installie from USB port, and restart Hackie. R) The end. Extra Points S) If you own a SSD, paste the following on Terminal in order to enable TRIM support: sudo trimforce enable T) Replace VBoxHfs-64.efi with HFSPlus-64.efi in drivers64UEFI. It's proprietary, but it's faster. Notes - You should replace the default Intel Wifi+BT Mini PCIe card with the BCM94352HMB or something equally compatible. - Sleep does not work yet (see post #2 for output). - Keep in mind that this is a WIP, any input from you will be much appreciated. - Make sure to mention the lettering of the step in question and the description of your problem using as much detail as possible.

  4. Hi, have you got any idea of how can I make the sleep working on this configuration? This is the only things is not working (apart the CUDA drivers, matlab do not recognize my GTX650 video card gpu). I found that this can be done by patching the bios using pmpatch, but i really don't know how to do this, and where to get the patched bios files for my motherboard. Thanks
  5. It's been a while since I really messed with OS X, but I recently setup a pretty decent Intel machine, and was interested in giving it a try. I use an ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Killer motherboard with an Intel i5-4670K CPU, and a MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC GPU. Is it possible to natively-run OS X with such hardware? I imagine the CPU and GPU are fine, but the motherboard has be concerned. I haven't done any searching myself, so please forgive me if there's some thread somewhere with instructions for that particular motherboard or something (although if I understand right, that motherboard is relatively new to the market).
  6. Hi all, I'm trying to get this past post-installation phase, used USB to boot El Capitan to no avail. Please assist if you have similar board or suggestion, greatly appreciated. Here's the error and my specifications: Specifications - Asrock H77 Pro4 MVP (Modded BIOS 1.40) - Intel i5 3550 - Corsair Vengence 16GB DDR3 RAM - Onboard Intel HD Graphics 2500

    How to install Yosemite?

    hi there... I have asrock g41m-vs3 r2.0 mobo and now am running niresh's mavericks and it runs well.... but how to install Yosemite on my pc?
  8. I have a [Asrock G31M-S R2.0] mainboard and i recently saw quite a number of guide ( most of them isnt really clear enough ) of how to boot mac os on the same mainboard .... Im quite new in this .... so is there anyone kind there to help me with some clear guide with uploaded file which may be use in the installation !!! In my machine : Intel core 2 duo E4500 2.24GHz - Asrock G31M-S R2.0 - 2GB DDR2 RAM - 160GB HDD - Nvidia GT 220 Someone please help me with this !!! I will appreciate it so much !! thank you in advance !!
  9. Specs: asrock fatal1ty z87, intel 4770k, gtx770. I've got ozmosis from there: http://www.osx86.net/category/22-asrock/ . I've tried both with 1.70 and 1.50 version. I've created usb installer using createinstallmedia tool and injected fakesmc kext onto EFI partition of usb drive. I've been able to boot the installer from usb drive, partition the drive to my liking and start the installation. After a couple of minutes the first part was done, pc restarted and I couldn't find a way to continue the installation. Booting into the usb drive would start the installation process over and I didn't have an option in boot menu to boot from the ssd I tried to install OSX on. Am I missing some kexts or anything like this? Is the problem with the ozmosis I installed? Or maybe there is a way to refresh somehow boot menu entries? I know I can do it with clover, but I don't want to, I really want to get ozmosis working. It looks nicer and cleaner without the need to load clover every time you boot the device.
  10. So I have 10.9.3 working perfectly on my system, but sleep does not work. It is the only thing keeping my Hackintosh from being perfect. I have the ASRock Z75 Pro3 mobo. If anyone could help with this, it'd be amazing. Thanks! System Specs: CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 OS: Mavericks 10.9.3 Motherboard: ASRock z75 Pro3 Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB Storage: Samsung 840 120GB SSD & Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB GPU: XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB PSU: Corsair Builder 430W (CX430)

    DSDT on asrock h61m-u3s3

    Hi I installed 10.9 and every thing is ok except dsdt and nullcpupowermanagement I have Asrock h61m-u3s3 with G620 Cpu and 8600Gt GPU. I extract dsdt with editor and compile it. I get 3 errors and after fixing, one of them leaves. HID suffix Must be all in hex digits and i Can not remove ncpm.kext I don't know if these are relative or not? Thanks
  12. Hello! I'm new hackintosh user so I decided to ask for help. Currently I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 by Hazard on my PC but the system freezes. Here are the specs: MB - asrock z77 pro4 CPU - intel core i7-3770 GPU - intel hd graphics 4000 Any help about the installation and the bug fixing will be useful!
  13. Hi everyone, I'm writing here to find a solution to the issues I'm encountering on my computer after installing OS X 10.8.3. My system is the following: i7 3770K, ASRock Z77 Extreme4, 2x4GB 2GHz RAM. I'm using the integrated HD4000 graphics. Everything seemed working after installing some kext (audio and OC'd processor with "an unified tool", video and LAN separately), but: - There's no way to make my computer sleep: the screen turns off, the power led begins flashing, but the fans keep going, and the motherboard display shows a (error?) code. Then I can't wake the pc but pressing the reset button. - Even if I installed the proper kext, all the USB 3 ports can't read any mass storage device I connect: if I plug in a mouse, or another similar device, it works flawlessly, but any USB thumb drive or external HDD aren't recognised. - After some minutes of normal usage, my computer loses the internet connection. A reboot is the only solution: after that, the issue disappears, but if I switch off the computer and, for example, I don't turn it on till the following day, it disconnects again. The third one is the most bothersome issue, because it often happens when I need a stable connection, so I'd be satisfied with a solution to just that one. Thank you for you help :wink2:
  14. Hi there, I've managed to install Mountain Lion on my ASRock H55M Pro, a pretty smooth experience using this guide. One thing that doesn't work as smoothly is sound. I've installed VoodooHDA and it shows up two output devices (analog and HDMI) and one input. Ideally, I'd like to get sound over the optical out interface, which seems to happen when I select HDMI. Unfortunately, the sound is very distorted. Listening closely, I can hear some of the actual sound through the noise, so it's doing something at least a little bit right. I've tried setting the Format via the Audio MIDI Setup, and while it makes some difference, the result is always heavily distorted. A Google search revealed a bunch of things, like setting some parameters in the VoodooHDA.kext's Info.plist, but everything I've tried thus far did not improve the situation. Nor made it worse, for that matter. If anyone could give me some pointers, I'd be happy to try them.
  15. Hello, I installed Niresh maverick 10.9 on my system with default settings: asrock z77 pro4-m 16gb ram corsair vengeance curcial m4 256 gb i5 3570K Gigabyte GTX 660 OC but at first reboot i get stucked at this point: http://s12.postimg.org/s66jymh0d/foto.jpg I tryed this kind of boots: GE=NO -v -f GE=NO -v GE=NO -v -f USEkernelcache=no but i always get stuck at that point. In chat somebody told me that it's a GPU problem and to try disabling some kext but now i'm at work and i cannot test ^^

I even tried with none the kexts on the left but end with the circle with the line anyway. My BIOS settings are optimized defaut, Share memory to 32MB, disabled serial port, ACPI, really don't know what to try next. 1) Is there a way to start the installation in verbose mode with a vanilla Yosemite USB installation ? 2) Any help would be greatly appreciated. What am I missing? My guess would be this OzmosisDefaults.plist file but I'm not sure. *** UPDATE I was able to boot in verbose mode using Windows+V keys Then I get the following error attached in the screenshot

  21. System: Asrock X79 extreme6 p2.50 Nvidea GeForce gtx 770 i7-4930K @ 3.40ghz i'm trying to start fresh. i have a working mavericks, but i want to install sierra and not high sierra, because some pro tools plugins don't work on high sierra yet. either way, i created the usb boot stick with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and dragged [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] on there, i get to the clover boot screen, and can't get any further, i see the black screen, apple logo, loading bar appears, but doesn't start moving at all. i guess some boot settings are wrong, for the old mavericks system chameleon used: <?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>SSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>No</string> <key>PciRoot</key> <string>1</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>npci=0x2000</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> now i don't have any idea how to get those settings into the boot options of the clover bootloader, i've been trying to change a few settings, but i've gone through 10 different clover boot settings combinations, with no luck. anybody that can help me? i couldn't find a guide on this site, not even one that explains how to create a sierra usb stick to boot with. sorry guys i'm really not good with this.
  22. Hello everyone, I have a new build and really want to install OS X Yosemite on it. Build is as follows Asrock x99 OC Forumla mobo Intel i7 5960x (OC'd to 4.4) 64gb Dominator platinum DDR4 Asus GTX 980ti strix I am using my MacPro to create the boot USB with a competing installer (5.2.0). Everything copys fine then I add the Kernal extensions for the 8 core processor. Then I boot from USB on the PC and I get into the competing boot screen but I only have Windows reserved and NTFS options available from my other hard drive. I am not given an option to boot into OS X. I have checked pretty much every guide online for the X99 install and 5960x and followed all steps to the tee but to no avail. I hope someone has an answer for this. Thank you all for your time and expertise. Brock
  23. Hello all. I used to have a a mostly fully working Hackintosh system, but due to the mobo's lack of power management (even patched) I gave up on it, and I swapped out to a different one that's considered by the community to be more Hackintosh compatible and suchlike. Here are my new machine's specs: Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Pro 3 (I don't know what BIOS revision) CPU: Intel Core i7 3770k @ 4.4 GHz with water cooling RAM: 16 GB DDR3 @ 1600 MHz Storage: 1x 1.5TB, 1x 1 TB and 2x 2TB, 1x 120GB SSD for Linux GPU: Zotac nVidia GeForce GTX 460 Amp'd Edition 1GB GDDR5 I believe.. the card is from 2010 Two 1080p 24" Displays I was able to launch the installer and successfully install ML with both displays active but my issue is that I can't get the system to boot up natively unless in Safe Mode (boot flag -x), though I guess that isn't quite native. I know my GPU is older, but on the aforementioned other mobo (now being used in my other desktop system that serves as my HTPC, of which I'd like to reattempt to Hackintosh soon) I was able to get my it working just fine... I think I had to get its device ID or something and put into my chameleon.boot.plist? Would my best bet be to get a GTX 470 or higher? Is getting this older GPU working a waste of time and effort? I intend to use OS X as a dedicated video editing 'workstation' as I want to have it triple booting with Linux (running now) and Windows 7 or maybe I'll try Windows 8.1. I've read peoples' success stories who have my same board, but they flashed a patched BIOS. I'm weary of doing that since I bricked a previous board I had and I don't want that to happen again. Any help would be appreciated greatly.
  24. Hi guys! My first post here so I apologize if its in the wrong place! I'm very new to this stuff so sorry if i ask stupid questions haha. First my spec: Asrock Fatal1ty x79 professional Intel i7 3930k 8gb Corsair Vengeance 1600 Asus Matrix 7970 Platinum At the moment, i'm just trying to boot into the installer. I'm using the clover bootloader and iAtkos ML3U on seperate usb drives. I boot into clover, select "install OSX from iAtkos ML3U" and it starts to boot, and then hangs on "system uptime in nanoseconds:*insert a load of numbers*". I've tried -v, -x, usekernelcache=no, cpus=1 and none made a difference. I have virtualization, speed step and HT disabled. I can't use Graphicsenabler=no because on x79 theres no intergrated graphics, so i can't try that (I don't think?) I am stuck! Any ideas?
  25. Hi, i wonder if somebody can help me. I've been looking through the forum but can't find an exact answer. I've made a virtual os of mac 10.8 in Vmware. I've finally got everything working except the sound and graphics card. I have an onboard soundcard which is on the Asrock n68c-gs and shows up as a via hd audio in device manager on my host win 7 machine. Also showing there is AMD hd audio. When i power up the mac os the volume button is greyed out and when i go to preferences, sound it says no output/input device. I had tried a few kexts using kext helper including VoodooHDA and AppleHD and reset it etc but i still can't get it to work. I've also tried other things mentioned such as trying headphones etc but nothing seems to help. As for the Radeon 6770 i've read that this is because a mac cant register it unless you mess with the bios and change it down to a 5770 (no idea how to do that and dont particularly want to as i need it for games on the PC). The os works using the built in svga driver but cant play videos etc as this doesnt have opengl. As you can probably guess from this post i'm very new to this. I only need it for xcode as i've been making apps using flash and have been told to learn obj c and xcode to improve chances of a job so this is fairly urgent/important for me but before a few days ago i had never even seen a mac system. PS i also tried virtualbox and a distro called Niresh 10.8 but way too many problems, couldnt get lan to work to start with but strangely the sound worked. I should also point out my sound driver is a via vt1705, i did find a kext that supposedly works and used kext helper to insert it, reset sysem etc but it hasnt worked, still showing no output devices (also did repair disk permissions tho i dont think its needed with helper)
