You have now created the macOS High Sierra Installer. In order to boot and install macOS onto your computer the installer requires the Clover boot loader from Clover team. The Clover boot loader contains, a configuration file ( config.plist) and kernal extensions (kexts), the config.plist and kexts are specific for each Hackintosh desktop / laptop computer build. Clover boot loader also has many other files and folders. I have already prepared a USB drive using the Clover installer and made edits to config.plist for this build, you can download and copy over my EFI Folder and skip steps in Spoiler below, then paste the downloaded EFI folder in the hidden USB EFI / ESP partition on your High Sierra USB installer drive. See the spoiler, using Clover installer to make High Sierra USB installer bootable. View the hidden macOS High Sierra Installer's EFI/ESP partition Open Terminal Copy and Paste into Terminal: diskutil list Enter Mount the USB EFI / ESP Partition onto the Desktop Again, from Terminal. Copy and Paste into Terminal: diskutil mount disk3s1 ** Identify your EFI partition from diskutil list command, in the example image above my external USB EFI is listed as disk3s, yours maybe different ** 3. Enter. The hidden EFI / ESP partition is now mounted on your desktop. Copy EFI Folder to USB EFI / ESP Partition ( Don't use the post install EFI folder at top of page, use post install EFI only after macOS High Sierra is installed ) 1. Download the PRE INSTALL EFI Folder here >> EFI.zip 2. Drag & Drop or Copy & Paste downloaded EFI folder into the mounted USB EFI / ESP partition. The bootable USB installer for macOS High Sierra is ready to use! INSTALL macOS HIGH SIERRA Insert the macOS High Sierra USB Installer into computer USB port. Start PC and immediately press keyboard F8. From Asus Boot Menu, choose your USB thumb drive. 4. Clover boot menu 5. Choose - Boot OS X install from Install macOS High Sierra.. Later in the guide, I will explain how to remove the extra entries on the boot menu, so you would have just High Sierra Icon and / or Windows. The extra entries are removed in config.plist in the uploaded EFI / Clover folder that I have provided. 6. Wait few mins! 7. Choose Languge 8. Select Disk Utility 9. From Disk Utility Menu --> View / Show All Devices 10. If Samsung 960 EVO drive is not visible in Disk Utility, follow these steps inside spoiler below. 11. Erase, disk. Give Name / Format: Mac OS Extended ( Journaled) / Scheme: GUID Partition Map 12. Partition, Format: APFS and apply 13. From macOS Utilities screen select Install macOS 14. Continue 15. Agree 16. Select Drive Macintosh or whatever you named it. 17. macOS is now installing 18. Wait... 19. Success ! POST INSTALLATION So far, you are using the macOS High Sierra USB installer to boot High Sierra. The USB installer EFI /ESP partition contains the downloaded EFI / Clover folder allowing you to boot to High Sierra desktop. So at this moment you can only boot High Sierra with the help of Clover on the USB installers hidden EFI / ESP partition. Next, steps is to make High Sierra boot without the need of the USB installer. Copy POST EFI folder to your High Sierra EFI / ESP Partition on your drive When you created the USB High Sierra installer, you mounted the EFI / ESP partition and copied over the EFI folder that I provided for the Asus Z370-G. Next, mount the hidden EFI/ESP partition on your High Sierra system drive. Then copy the >> or POST EFI folder to your macOS High Sierra system drive . To do this, follow steps below. 1. Identify discs to Mount with Terminal command: diskutil list ** Your disk IDENTIFIER may be different, the images are examples from my system ** 2. Terminal command below to Mount macOS EFI/ESP partition: diskutil mount disk0s1 3. System drive, EFI / ESP partition is mounted on desktop 4. Drag & Drop OR Copy & Paste EFI / ESP folder from EFI - POST-INSTALL over to EFI / ESP drive partition: 5. Done! You can now boot and use macOS High Sierra on your computer without the need for the USB device Mostly everything should now be working if you used the same hardware that I listed in parts. In the rest of this guide will explain some basic troubleshooting steps, how install NVIDIA web drivers, how sound was installed.. etc. STEPS TO EDIT CLOVER CONFIG.PLIST 1. You need to mount the EFI / ESP partition to edit the Clover config.plist. Previously, the guide used teminal commands diskutil list and diskutil mount to mount hidden EFI/ESP partitions. This guide will now use an app to mount the EFI / ESP partition. Download @Micky1979 >>ESP Mounter Pro on InsanelyMac and use it to mount the EFI / ESP partitions so that you can view, make edits to config.plist, add extra kexts if needed etc. A quick peak at the EFI / Clover contents, highlighting most common files and folders. 2. Download >> Clover Configurator from mackie100, it is used to edit and make changes to config.plist. Open mounted EFI partition, navigate to EFI / Clover, make a copy of config.plist and rename it config.BAK. Then drag and drop conf.plist onto desktop. Make changes, save and drag & drop back inside EFI partition. Clover Configurator default screen, always save before quitting Clover Configurator! Some people will be very familiar with how to find and configure config.plist, I'm listing this guide with extra steps for those new to Hackintosh. BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING TIP You might make changes to config.plist with Clover Configurator or add kexts and then discover that you can no longer reach High Sierra desktop or boot. The USB installer can be used to boot your Hackintosh ( I mentioned it was a handy troubleshooting tool ). The USB installers Clover boot loader can boot your computer to the High Sierra desktop. You can then mount the EFI/ESP partition and undo config.plist edits or delete last added kexts that have prevented you from booting to your High Sierra Desktop or just replace the whole EFI folder on your computer with the EFI folder from the USB installer. If the above troubleshooting was unsuccessful and you still can't boot your Hackintosh. From the Clover boot screen, enter Clover options: Select Boot macOS from Macintosh Then press spacebar Check: Verobse (-v) Return Enter The Verbose (-v) option will point to where in the startup process your Hackintosh stops, it's also worth checking BIOS settings before starting any troubleshooting. You can then search in the InsaneleyMac forums for a solution, or ask other members. HOW TO DISABLE / ENABLE SIP Sometimes when troubleshooting or installing kexts, you may have to disable Apple System Integrity Protection ( SIP ). To disable or enable SIP, mount the EFI / ESP partiton using ESP Mounter Pro or Terminal then edit config.plist with the Clover Configurator. Example: Disable SIP in Clover Configurator: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x67 Partially disable: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x3 ( Clover Default ) Enable: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x0 TIDY CLOVER BOOT SCREEN Clover adds extra MacOS and Windows entries on the Clover boot menu. Below is what my Clover menu initially looked like after installing Mac OS High Sierra and adding a Windows drive to my build. The High Sierra Clover theme is from >> hirakujira I wanted the Clover boot menu to just show Mac OS High Sierra and Windows. Remove extra entries using Clover Configurator Add the Preboot string to config.plist ( Removes Apple Preboot entries ) Add theRecovery string to config.plist ( Removes the Mac OS High Sierra recovery option ) Set Scan / Legacy checkbox to false in config.plist ( Removes the extra Windows entries ) After applying the settings in Clover Configurator, save and reboot. Minimalist Clover boot screen. MULTIBOOT WITH WINDOWS Temporarily disconnect / remove your High Sierra Drive from your Hackintosh Computer. Install a 2nd drive inside the computer then install Windows on it. Reattach your High Sierra Drive. Clover will detect your Windows and High Sierra drive when you start your computer. I already had Windows 10 as an EFI install on a Samsung 500GB EVO SSD on another computer. After completing my Hackintosh I then simply attached the Samsung EVO SSD into the new built Hackintosh. Upon rebooting it was detected by Clover. So I have two drives, Windows on the Samsung EVO and High Sierra on the NVMe Samsung EVO 960. NVIDIA / WEB DRIVERS *** There is many Nvidia Web Drivers for different builds / updates of macOS High Sierra *** Some times you may have to reinstall or update your Nvidia web drivers after a macOS update. To install the proper Nvidia Web driver ( for GTX10 Series ), collect the following information from your macOS High Sierra installation. You can find this information in "About This Mac" and clicking on the System Report button. In the lefthand window, click on Software. macOS High Sierra Version Number macOS High Sierra Build Number Using this >> Nvidia Web Drivers Link. identify your build number and download WebDriver As an example, I have build number 17C88 and I downloaded WebDriver-378. Configure Nvidia Web driver in config.plist using Clover Configurator Mount EFI partition and drag and drop config.plist onto desktop and open with Clover Configurator. Enable the following in config.plist: 1. System Parameters / NvidiaWeb = True ( tick ) 2. Graphics / ig-platform-id = 0x59120003 ( Intel & Nvidia ) 3. Graphics / Inject Intel = True ( tick ) Save config.plist and drag and drop back into the EFI partition. Check Nvidia Video card is working Download and Install >> Cuda driver Managing Nvidia Web Driver for High Sierra update's using Vulgo's Bash Script If you have installed an update that breaks Nvidia graphics, use the bash script to modify the Nvidia Web Driver for the new build number.

Continuing to use the port limit patch can cause problems as it causes access outside a fixed array bounds. Access outside a fixed array bound can result in other memory locations being overwritten, those other memory locations will contain data that you don't won't overwritten!. So the port limit patch is not recommended for long term use. Ports limit patch is good for macOS USB installer purpose. Ports limit patch is disabled in my POST INSTALL EFI folder. Below is the USB ports limit patch shown in clover configurator: FIX Note, external 2x USB2 ports HS09 and HS10 are deliberately disabled to get port count below 15. If you have a different motherboard you can use IORegistryExplorer for port discovery and eliminate some ports to get below the 15 port limit. You can create an SSDT for port limit to use with USBInjectAll.kext. Or, If you are not keen on creating the SSDT file, then you can use "uia_exclude=" boot flag in config.plist and have USBInjectAll.kext exclude those ports. Rehabman has a great guide on port discovery & SSDT. >>Creating a Custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext When you know what ports you want to eliminate, then you would set custom boot flags using "uia_exclude=" in config.plist. USBInjectAll.kext would then ignore those ports listed by "uia_exclude=" boot flag. Example: using "uia_exclude=" boot flag to keep USB port below 15 uia_exclude=HS07;HS08;HS09;HS10;HS11;HS13;HS14;SS07;SS08;SS09;SS10 If you have Asus Z370-G as per this guide then don't use custom boot flags as it's already done with SSDT-UIAC.aml Disable Ports Limit Patch: SSDT-UIAC.aml ( USB PORTS FIX ) My ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI with Bluetooth card is installed in motherboard slot: PCIE_X1_2 the ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI with Bluetooth card USB cable is attached on internal USB1112 header (HS12) on the motherboard. If you have a Wifi card with Bluetooth in a different PCIE slot then remove SSDT-UIAC.aml from EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED and download SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl and change HS12 for appropriate port and save SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl as ACPI Machine Language Binary and place file in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED. IMESSAGES This worked for me on my first attempt, I suggest using an Apple WiFi card for hassle free iMessages etc... I'm using an original >> Apple BCM943602CS WIFI+bluetooth module and adapter, this has native support in macOS High Sierra and needs no kexts / drivers. It works out of the box! If you can't get a hold of this card used in this build, then try sourcing a PCIe adapter and fitting an iMac WiFi card to it. Purchase adapter on >> Ebay or Amazon Apple iMac WiFi card, part Number >> 607-8967 Or use a MacBook Air WiFi card & adapter, it would directly replace the Asus Wifi card and free up PCIe slots. Configure iMessages with the Clover Configurator SMBIOS / Generate New SMBIOS Profile for iMac 18,3 Check >> Serial number generated is not in use!" 3. System Parameters / Custom UUID ( Generate New ) 4. Rt Variables / ROM ( Generate from SMBIOS or System ) Windows drivers for Apple WiFi and Bluetooth devices. If you are dual booting with Windows and you are using an Apple WiFi / Bluetooth card like the one suggested above. Then chances are you won't have Windows drivers.

PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni Utility Disco Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”. Immagine Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan. Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza. dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni Immagine Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi" Immagine ===================== METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD. Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script Esempio =========================== Metodo 2 L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta con Mavericks. Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso” Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così. Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso. Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”??? Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale. A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio. Comando per creare USB con Yosemite: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con El Capitan sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14) Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO… AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO……………………………………….. COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO. DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI. Immagine Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb. *NOTA*: Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo. Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata ========================= METODO "MANUALE".... (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12) ========================== Bootloader **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in modalità Legacy. Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo Fatto questo dobbiamo installare Clover sulla usb. A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase. Lanciate il pkg. Immagine Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita) Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc" Per Installazione UEFI Mettete i flag : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI : installare Clover nella ESP : Driver64UEFI selezionate OsxAptioFixDrv-64 * :Se nel vostro sistema è presente una scheda grafica (discreta) della serie 9xx nVidia selezionate OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 al posto di OsxAptioFixDrv-64 * ** OsxAptioFix2Drv :E' necessario per poter impostare CsrActiveConfig= 0x3 ** ***OsxAptioFix3Drv oppure AptioMemory --> (consigliato) devono essere usati su hardware Skylake o successivi perché permettono alla nvram di lavorare correttamente (mi raccomando o uno o l'altro) Proseguite con l’installazione.

  5. Hi All I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation: - MSI B350 PC Mate - Ryzen 5 - 2600 - Radeon Pro 580 GPU - 4 x 8GB DDR4 (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes... ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2" Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX. So can someone help... I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen. In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1 In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67 In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well) But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help... Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...
  6. Buenas! recuerdo que cuando empece a instalar el clover para hacer mi hackintosh el boot de clover tenia una cuenta atrás en la que pasado “no se si eran 5 o 6 segundos”se iniciaba la opcion de arranque de high sierra del disco duro que es la que se marca por defecto, seguramente habré instalado un theme que me lo deja fijo y no recuerdo como volver activarlo. gracias de antemano!!! adjunto foto
  7. Hey, I've recently installed High Sierra fresh and I've been having this problem with clover since. It basically shows two options for booting Windows from the EFI partition (Windows EFI, not OS X's): - Boot Windows EFI from EFI - Boot Windows From EFI Only the first works. So, I figured it would fix the problem if I just turn off all Clover's scan options and then created custom entries for OS X and Windows, but the problem still persists. If I find the UUID of Boot Windows from EFI and hide it in Clover Configurator, it will simply hide both Windows boot options, including my custom entry, so somehow it's getting these two entries from the same partition. What can I do to fix this issue? Let me know if you need my bootlog or anything. Best regards.
  8. I get a lot of questions about HOW TO BACKUP A HACKINTOSH. So I decided to create Complete Guide with 5 methods described in detail, how to easily make bootable clones of Hackintosh system disks, or backup your data. Full step by step tutorial is here:
  9. Reviving my old INSTAHackintosh, it's been a while.... Purpose: Create User Custom Install iso/dmg with bootloader, apps and user-settings. Create Live iso/usb. What Versions: Tiger-Current ( bit ambitious but hey I like a challenge ). Why: Because I can! I'm not too impressed with the way Apple and others handle their installs. Support for 4 Bootloaders: Chameleon Clover Legacy Refit Ozmosis Clover UEFI Keep you informed as I progress from scratch. This could take a while, it's NOT my priority. Will probably release in Os versions, starting at Mojave and working backwards.

  11. Hi All, I've recently bought a Fujitsu Ah512 (please move this thread if it's in the wrong place, apologies if so!) I've fitted an Intel I5 2450m SandyBridge (HM75 7 series chipset) to the board, It has internal GPU of HD 3000 (1368 x 768). The Motherboard is FJNBB29. I've been trying for a week to get this to run the Sierra Installer, but sadly it hits an unresponsive, black screen when I select it. There's nothing outputting to the HDMI port, (I haven't checked VGA, but being VGA I'd assume not.) I cannot boot verbose either so I cannot log what's going on. FakeSMC is present in the kext/other folder. I've tried to boot with intel injection disabled and still that hasn't helped. Please let me know if you've any suggestions, I was really hoping to get this sorted as my macbook pro is getting on and I'd like to use this one to carry some of the macbook's work. Many Thanks Jiji CLOVER.zip
  12. Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh. There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there…. I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg @colt2 HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware @dsmccombs comment on faking Ivybridge Processor @E:V:A http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55572430&postcount=6 @Tech Reviews video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7X07U63lwg. VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX Requirements Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X) 4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X) Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34 Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75 16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack 1. On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder. 2. Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes. Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete. 3. Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script: cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4. At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later. Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox 1. Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM. 2. Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version. I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next... 3. Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next. 4. Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button. 5. For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare. Click next... 6. For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space). 7. On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger. When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI. 8. Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings.... a. On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?) b. On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2 c. On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB d. On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier... e. Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings. Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac 1. From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 2. Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter> after each line. Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick... Eg iMac11,3 cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F2238BAE" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 MacBookPro11,3 cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "MacBookPro11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-2BD1B31983FE1663" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 Macmini6,2 cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "Macmini6,2" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F65AE981FFA204ED" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 3. Optional- For some host systems eg those with Haswell and newer CPUs, you might have to spoof an older CPU to avoid VirtualBox errors. You can try from one of the following if this happens: To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4. Close the command prompt window. Installation of El Capitan We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine.... Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer: 1. Select language, agree to legal terms 2. Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended. I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan. 3. Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on. 4. After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete. At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive. The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive. 5. At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout. You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish… 6. Create a User Account and select your Time Zone. You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple…. 7. Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop. 8. Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted. Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). Customization with VBoxManage 1. You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt: cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively. Update: For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed... VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution) eg VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2. Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html. Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite . Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware. With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5... Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above). Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free . UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51. UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365: For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73. UPDATE macOS Mojave Beta: For macOS Mojave Beta, use CMJI.tool on page 4 of thread. Good luck and enjoy CECI.tool.zip CYI.tool.zip CMI.tool.zip
  13. Cloud Clover Editor allows you to manage Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs everywhere! WEB Open Cloud Clover Editor APP (MacOS - Discontinued) Clover flying editor ( Micky1979 ) Sources: https://bitbucket.org/kylon/cloud-clover-editor-cce/overview To run CCE at home you will need: An HTTP server (Apache, Nginx, ...) PHP 5.3.3+ (latest PHP version is always recommended for better performances/security) Sqlite3 PHP extension Some Features: Edit text in tables: Editable fields are marked with a text cursor. Double click, or tap and hold, to open the inline editor. You can now press Enter or click outside to save your changes. Working with multiple configs: The right sidebar is your multitasking menu. Use the add button to create a new config and add it to the list. You can safely switch between all your configs, no changes will be lost. You can mix Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs. Config Upgrade feature: In the case you are using old configuration options, CCE gives you the ability to automatically upgrade your config. Copy to: You can copy patches between your configs (you will love this when you need to copy kernel and kext patches ;D ). You will find a yellow copy icon if that field does support the copyTo feature. Ozmosis Mode: A new setting, Cloud Clover Editor Mode, is now added in Cloud Clover Editor -> CCE Settings. This will let you switch from Clover EFI to Ozmosis mode. Changes to your current file will be lost. CCE Bank 2.0: Thanks to @cecekpawon for the idea. CCE Bank is a database where you can save/load Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs. You can protect your config from unwanted modifications or make a publicly editable config. To save a config in CCE Bank you only need to check the "Save to CCE Bank" option. Tick the box generate a new CID, if you don t have one. A CID (CCE ID) acts like a container and it is your authentication key. You can group multiple configs under the same CID or generate as many CIDs as you like. Edit Modes: Public: Anyone can make modifications, only the owner can change its settings. Private: Only the owner can make modifications and change its settings. MyBank: Only the owner can see this config, make modifications or change its settings. MyBank is your private area. Change the 'view mode' to switch between the public bank and your personal bank. To manage your currently loaded config, go to Cloud Clover Editor -> Open config -> click the settings button.

  14. 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.

    Vector Themes

    Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later. It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes. It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size. What application in macOS can create SVG graphics? Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity. LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy. Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features. Illustrator is good but expensive. How to improve SVG file? Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering. Some helps: Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities. How to create SVG fonts? You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts. I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful. You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google. But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering. You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font. Pictures from Badruzeus https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=301597
  16. Here I propose all developer will publish their explanation of changes made. Only developers allowed to post here. Also there will be no questions and discussion. There is another thread "Clover general discussions" here. Previous change explanations up to revision 3088 is attached. ChangesHistory.rtfd.zip Next revisions up to current 3174 contains: 1. Bugs eliminations. 2. Speed improvements. 3. Support for new hardware: DDR4, Haswell 5th, AMD Radeon, Nvidia, Intel Graphics. 4. Approved kernel and kext patches. Nothing new for users.
  17. Hello! 1. I install 10.13.5 on PC and install latest Clover. Working fine with NullCpuPowerManagement.kext. Then I reconfigure config.plist to work with native power management but have kernel panic. Then I found kernel fixes for pentiums, add this to config.plist and have panic again. How i can fix it without using custom DSDT? P.S. Also why a have worked speed step with NullCpuPowerManagement.kext? Checked in HWMonitor. Also have good results in Geekbench4 - 3016/5227 points in single/multi-core mode (linux - 2861/4476, win - 3038/4850). 2. GTS250 worked out of the box. But I have problem during starting with HDMI connection (lost signal to monitor). No problems with VGA. How i can fix it without using custom DSDT?

    Version v1.04


    QuickESP is a minimalistic and discreet ESP/EFI Mounter application. It's simple! Click to mount, and re-click to unmount. The Preferences pane enables you to configure the following: Enable Advanced View. Shows additional information about all discovered ESP volumes. This is helpful when you have multiple SSD/HDD installed on your system. Also you will be able to distinguish between drives with identical names. Open ESP folder on Finder. After mounting an ESP volume, its respective folder will open on Finder. This is a convenient time-saver. Autostart. Automatically launch the application on login. Make sure you have copied QuickESP.app into your /Applications folder. Credits: Dennis Koluris (a.k.a Denicio), Rick Patrick for the HDRV icon.
  20. ===STATUS QUO=== E3 1230v2 + Asrock Z77 Pro4 (with mod bios for NVMe boot) + Samsung PM981 SSD via M.2-PCIe X4 card GPT structure sequence: ESP - MSR - Space Reserved for Hackintosh - Windows 10 Windows 10 1803 has been successfully installed using dsim and bcdboot (installer can't pass due to NTFS-EFI issue, don't know why) and CloverEFI r4630 has been copied to the ESP on SSD (with the same drivers, kexts and config.plist capable of building hackintosh on the same machine prior to the use of NVMe SSD, some minor issues of sleeping and hibernation existing though). And I can boot into windows via this clover with no trouble. The USB Installer of macOS High Sierra (10.13.6) has an identical set of EFI on the flash drive. ===ISSUES=== PM981 NVME SSD can be recognized no matter nvmexpressdxe.efi is put in the driver64uefi folders or not. However, it's recognized as external drives by the Disk Utility even if I applied the Piker R. patch#external as instructed in his blog. After booting into the macOS installer and the first round of installation being finished (I think it's meant to copy the BaseSystem to the dest. drive),the installer restarts the computer and then into clover. Some extra icons would have shown themselves at the clover startup screen as expected, including Preboot Installer (or something alike, I just can't remember clearly) leading to the ensuing installation, which was always the case previously when I built hackintoshes without this M.2-PCIe NVMe SSD. Unfortunately, no additional icons appear at Clover startup screen this time. There's only the same icon leading to macOS installer before the BaseSystem was copied to the dest. drive. If I click this icon, the same BaseSystem installation just occurs once again and again... So anyone comes up what's gone wrong here and offers help please?

    EFI_Clover for VMware

    Version r4644


    Clover r4644 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation. Tested with unlocked Workstation 14 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host. Installation 1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4644 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4644-X64 by double clicking on it. 2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal sudo diskutil mount disk0s1 3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition 4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file 5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu. Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
  22. Say I have TWO .aml files in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched -- dsdt1.aml and dsdt2.aml. I want to compare how they affect my machine. Now, I wanted to try NOT loading either of them. So in config.plist I set 'DSDT Name' set to null, i.e., there is no value. But checking bdmesg it shows Inserting dsdt1.aml from EFI\CLOVER\ACPI\patched ... Success Inserting dsdt2.aml from EFI\CLOVER\ACPI\patched ... Success Does "Inserting" mean they were loaded? Or just recognized? Did BOTH of them get loaded? Do they have to be called DSDT or is that arbitary? Do I need to actually remove them from ACPI/patched in order to NOT load them? I'd like to be able to choose a DSDT, or none, from within Clover at boot. I'm hesitant to remove them because if one option prevents me from booting MacOS, then I'm SOL because putting it back will be a PITA. Can I put them in a different folder and still load one from Clover options? Thanks!

  24. ----------------------------- Mise à jour 12/07/2018 ----------------------------- La sortie de macOS 10.14 Beta m'oblige à mettre ce topic à jour. Plus de détails dans ce post. ----------------------------- Mise à jour 09/06/2017 ----------------------------- La sortie de macOS 10.13 Beta m'oblige à mettre ce topic à jour. Plus de détails dans ce post. ----------------------------- Mise à jour 15/06/2016 ----------------------------- Une petite mise à jour du topic pour confirmer le bon fonctionnement du patch à la volé de Clover (r3561) avec macOS Sierra. ----------------------------- Mise à jour 24/08/2015 ----------------------------- ok, très bien, comme pour la HD6770, la nouvelle méthode du patch à la volé est de nouveau fonctionnel et avec les dernières versions de Clover. pour ma part, je suis sur El Capitan DB7 et Clover r3259 par contre, je suis toujours obligé de m’aider de l’astuce avec FakeSMC pour que mes kexts soient toujours chargés, mais au moins cela marche. et pour config.plist, cela donne ça : ceci est juste un exemple avec ma HD4830, il va de soi que vous devez mettre Device-ID de votre carte graphique !!! Salut à tou(te)s Comme certain(e)s le savent, les cartes graphiques dites "Exotiques" ne sont pas supportés par le système d'exploitation d'Apple. En sus d'ajouter l'identifient de la carte graphique (Device ID) dans l'Info.plist du ou des kexts concernés, il faut aussi interagir sur la partie "binaire" du kext par le biais du "patching". Dans notre cas, les cartes graphiques exotiques sont les cartes AMD (anciennement ATI) de la série HD 48xx, et plus précisément les HD 4830, HD4850, HD4870x2 et HD4890.* Donc le but est de faire fonctionner ces cartes graphiques de manière stable et fluide en activant QE_CI, chose nécessaire pour en profiter pleinement du système d'exploitation. * Juste avant de commencer, vous l'avez peut-être remarqué, la HD4870 n'est pas sur la liste suscitée et pour cause c'est que cette carte graphique est nativement supportée par le système d'exploitation d'Apple. Son Device ID est 0x94401002 que vous pouvez trouvé dans l'Info.plist des kexts concernés et c'est celui-ci que nous allons utiliser afin de le remplacer par le Device ID de notre carte graphique. ** Ce tuto est fait pour fonctionner sous OS X Mavericks, mais il doit fonctionner aussi avec les autres. La seule chose différente c'est l'adresse binaire à patcher. Très bien, comme le titre le suggère, nous allons voir comment faire reconnaître ces cartes graphiques sous Clover et obtenir par la même un QE_CI activé et parfaitement fonctionnelle. Je vais utiliser ma Sapphire HD4830 512 MB GDDR3 PCI-E (comme cobaye ) pour ce test et qui a pour Device ID 0x944c1002. Pour que ce test réussisse, nous allons donc utiliser ces 2 kexts, à savoir AMD4800Controller.kext (pour la partie QE) et ATIRadeonX2000.kext (pour la partie CI) et allons ajouter notre Device ID dans l'Info.plist. via le tweak "KernelAndKextPatches" Donc les valeurs à entrer dans notre config.plist sont celle-ci : <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <array> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>AMD4800Controller</string> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Find</key> <string>0x94401002</string> <key>Replace</key> <string>0x944C1002</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Find</key> <string>0x94401002</string> <key>Replace</key> <string>0x944C1002</string> </dict> </array> Comme vous pouvez le voir, la clé "InfoPlistPatch" sert à injecter notre Device ID "uniquement" dans Info.plist, sans y toucher à la partie "binaire" de nos kexts. La clé "Find" a pour fonction de trouver le Device ID que l'on veut remplacer par le notre en utilisant la clé "Replace". Très bien, maintenant comme nous l'avons dit au début de ce tutoriel, ajouter notre Device ID n'est pas suffisant pour faire fonctionner pleinement notre carte graphique, il faut encore interagir sur la partie "binaire" de nos kexts. Dans notre cas, il va falloir agir uniquement sur un kext, çàd sur ATIRadeonX2000.kext et plus particulièrement sur ATIRadeonX2000.kext/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX2000 Et pour cela, nous allons faire comme ceci : <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string> <key>Find</key> <data>0F8394010000</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>909090909090</data> </dict> </array> Là nous pouvons voir que la clé "InfoPlistPatch" n'est pas utilisée et donc ces valeurs n'auront aucun effet sur l'Info.plist mais agiront uniquement au niveau de la partie "binaire". Et voici les valeurs en leur forme complète que vous devrez ajouter dans votre config.plist <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <array> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>AMD4800Controller</string> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Find</key> <string>0x94401002</string> <key>Replace</key> <string>0x944C1002</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Find</key> <string>0x94401002</string> <key>Replace</key> <string>0x944C1002</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string> <key>Find</key> <data>0F8394010000</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>909090909090</data> </dict> </array> Très bien, maintenant il ne nous reste plus qu'à autoriser l'injection des kexts, sans quoi le patch ne fonctionnera pas. Et nous allons le faire via le tweak "InjectKexts" comme ceci : <key>SystemParameters</key> --> clé principale <dict> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>InjectKexts</key> --> sous clé <string>Yes</string> </dict> Si certain(e)s d'entre vous préfèrent utiliser le logiciel "Clover Configurator" pour plus de facilité, voici comment entrer ces valeurs : Allez sur l'onglet "Kernel And Kext Patches" et faites comme ceci : *Ne faites pas attention sur le majuscule/minuscule, cela ne fait aucune différence Et pour injecter les kexts, aller sur l'onglet "System Parameters" et mettez l'option Inject Kexts sur Yes comme ceci : Voilà, vous n'avez plus qu'à enregistrer les ajustements, redémarrer votre pc et apprécier le résultat. MAIS ... seulement voilà ... il y a un problème ... Quoi ? Initialement, les kexts ne sont pas présents dans le kernelcache à cause de "OSBundleRequired=Safe Boot" (ils ne sont pas chargés en local par défaut mais en mode sans échec) et donc le patchage "à la volé" (on the fly) ne fonctionnera pas. Donc quoi, tout ça pour rien ? Non, bien-sûr, voici l'astuce pour remédier à cela : Dans un premier temps, il vous faut booter l'OS sans kernelcache. Si vous utiliser Clover Configurator, il vous suffit juste de cocher l'option "No Caches" dans l'onglet "System and Parameters" ou bien vous le faites directement dans votre config.plist : <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>NoCaches</key> <true/> </dict> Ceci aura donc pour effet de bloquer kernelcache et obliger boot.efi de charger le kernel et les kexts séparément. Clover et FSInject vont ensuite intercepter tous les chargements des kexts par boot.efi et changer "OSBundleRequired=Safe Boot" en "OSBundleRequired=Root" à la volé (on the fly) et forceront boot .efi à charger les kexts. Et ensuite dans un second temps, Clover va patcher l'Info.plist de ces deux kexts et la partie binaire de ATIRadeonX2000, kernel va les charger et ils seront rattachés à votre carte graphique. Une fois ceci fait (donc les kexts utilisés), il vous suffit de faire sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions. Ceci créera un nouveau kernelcache qui cette fois-ci contiendra vos kexts utilisés. Ensuite il ne vous reste plus qu'à redémarrer normalement (en décochant l'option No Caches dans Clover Configurator) et le patch fonctionnera à merveille. Oui, mais ... là aussi ... Quoi encore ? Seulement voilà, pour une raison ou une autre, il peut arriver que kernelcache se reconstruit tout seul et le patch "à la volé" ne fonctionne plus. Alors je fais quoi moi en attendant ? L'astuce la plus efficace pour le moment est d'injecter les infos de vos kexts à l'intérieur de l'Info.plist de FakeSMC.kext comme des IOKitPersonalities additionnels. ????Kézako???? Ces infos vous les trouverez dans l'Info.plist de ces 2 kexts, sous IOKitPersonalities. Les voici : Pour AMD4800Controller.kext <key>Controller</key> <dict> <key>ATY,Cardinal</key> <dict> <key>aty_config</key> <dict> <key>CFG_NO_PP</key> <true/> </dict> </dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.kext.AMD4800Controller</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AMD4800Controller</string> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IOFramebuffer</string> <key>IOName</key> <string>AMD4800Controller</string> <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x94401002 0x944a1002</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>65050</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>aty_config</key> <dict> <key>CFG_NO_PP</key> <false/> <key>CFG_PAA</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>CFG_USE_USCN</key> <false/> </dict> <key>aty_properties</key> <dict> <key>PP_GFXClockGatingEnabled</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> </dict> Et pour ATIRadeonX2000.kext <key>ATIRadeonX2000</key> <dict> <key>ATIEnableWideBlitSupport</key> <true/> <key>ATIUseTearingWideBlit</key> <false/> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.ATIRadeonX2000</string> <key>GpuDebugPolicy</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IOCFPlugInTypes</key> <dict> <key>ACCF0000-0000-0000-0000-000a2789904e</key> <string>ATIRadeonX2000GA.plugin</string> </dict> <key>IOClass</key> <string>ATIRadeonX2000</string> <key>IODVDBundleName</key> <string>ATIRadeonX2000VADriver</string> <key>IOKitDebug</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IOAccelerator</string> <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x94001002 0x94011002 0x94021002 0x94031002 0x95811002 0x95831002 0x95881002 0x94c81002 0x94c91002 0x95001002 0x95011002 0x95051002 0x95071002 0x95041002 0x95061002 0x95981002 0x94881002 0x95991002 0x95911002 0x95931002 0x94401002 0x94421002 0x944A1002 0x945A1002 0x94901002 0x949E1002 0x94801002 0x95401002 0x95411002 0x954E1002 0x954F1002 0x95521002 0x95531002 0x94a01002</string> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>IOSourceVersion</key> <string>8.24.11</string> <key>IOVARendererID</key> <integer>16908288</integer> <key>sensor-properties</key> <array> <dict> <key>device_type</key> <data> Z3B1LXNlbnNvcg== </data> <key>location</key> <string>GPU</string> <key>name</key> <string>gpu-sensor</string> <key>polling-period</key> <data> AAAAAQAAAAA= </data> <key>reg</key> <data> AAAAAg== </data> <key>sample-period</key> <data> AAAAAACYmAA= </data> <key>sensor-id</key> <data> AAAABg== </data> <key>version</key> <data> AAAAAg== </data> <key>zone</key> <data> AAAAAg== </data> </dict> </array </dict> Et voici donc l'Info.plist de FakeSMC.kext dans son intégrité, vous pouvez jeter un oeil, histoire de voir à quoi cela ressemble : FakeSMC_Info.plist.zip Et pour les moins casse-têtes, voici FakeSMC.kext modifié que j'utilise pour charger les 2 kexts : FakeSMC.kext.zip Voilà, avec ceci, vous n'aurez plus besoin de savoir si oui ou non les kexts sont dans le kernelcache.

    HP Omen 17

    Salve, sono da poco riuscito ad installare l'OS di High Sierra sul mio laptop, ma adesso non va la scheda di rete, il bluetooth pare funzionare, invece; inoltre non riesco a rendere l'HDD bootabile, ho installato clover, copiato clover della chiavetta ma niente, la scheda madre non lo riconosce come un OS e non esiste alcuna opzione del tipo "OS type", qualcuno può aiutarmi? grazie in anticipo
