  3. Hi, building Pandora's Box I need to compile Clover from source so I've created a script to do that following Clover devs advices. Well, Build_Clover.command can easily build a standard Clover, but also permit you to define macros that are not available on the standard package. So following Slice intruction here you can create a new package containing legacy boot file with all the macro you need by selecting them: =============================================================================== BUILD boot7 with additional macros <---------------------------------------------------- 1) USE_APPLE_HFSPLUS_DRIVER 2) USE_BIOS_BLOCKIO 3) NO_GRUB_DRIVERS 4) DISABLE_UDMA_SUPPORT 5) ENABLE_VBIOS_PATCH_CLOVEREFI 6) DISABLE_USB_SUPPORT 7) ENABLE_PS2MOUSE_LEGACYBOOT 8) DEBUG_ON_SERIAL_PORT 9) DISABLE_LTO 10) ENABLE_SECURE_BOOT 11) USE_ION 12) DISABLE_USB_MASS_STORAGE 13) ENABLE_USB_OHCI 14) ENABLE_USB_XHCI ONLY_SATA_0 added! actual macros defined: -D REAL_NVRAM -D NO_GRUB_DRIVERS_EMBEDDED -D ONLY_SATA_0 That affect boot7 only, enter you choice or press "b" to build: Result: also the package is customized to remind you what you have done!

Download High Sierra from the Apple App Store Prepare USB Flash Storage Pen Insert USB Storage Launchpad / Other → Disk Utility Choose your Flash Storage Pen from left panel Click Erase Settings: Name: USB Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Scheme: GUID Partition Map Click Erase Create macOS High Sierra Installer Launchpad / Other → Teminal Copy and Paste into Terminal: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --volume /Volumes/USB/ Press: Enter Enter password: Type: Y Press: Enter Done! 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.

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.

In fact only newer bytes are downloaded instead of the entire app, usually 1-2 MB.. and your Pandora will be up-to-date. Furthermore, Pandora receive updates for Clover and Enoch when available, at the same time maintaining a stable release to rely on (the one contained by default in the app), plus some intermediate versions if already downloaded. video by JahStories video by Fljagd "All in One" solution for pre and post OS X installation.

  9. Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, or High Sierra in VMware Workstation 12 on a Windows Host I wanted to make a simple guide on how to create a vanilla OS X El Capitan virtual machine running on a Windows host. The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh. There are many guides and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMWare disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there…. I’ve gathered info for this guide from various threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum eg Workstation 11/12, Player 7/12, Fusion 7/8 and ESXi 6 Mac OS X Unlocker 2 by @Donk How to Install OS X 10.x from Snow Leopard to El Capitan in VMware Workstation 10/12, Player 6/8 or ESXi 5/6 by @MSOK HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware Credit and thanks to @Donk, @Albert Nietsnie and @MSOK for all their hard work in creating and testing the VMware Unlocker program. 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 VMware Workstation 12 or later VMware Unlocker 2.0.7 or later 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#41 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. Unmount any attached install image/InstallESD.dmg (if currently mounted) by rebooting the system or running the hdiutil unmount command in terminal eg 3. 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…. 4. Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script: cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 5. 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. Update: @shela has created an ISO generating script compatible with OS X 10.6-10.12: create_osx_iso post #362. Install and Patch VMware Workstation 12 on your PC 1. Download and install VMWare Workstation Player 12 or later 2. Download and extract Unlocker 2.0.7 or later to your USB stick… 3. Run the win-install.cmd as administrator by right clicking the file in Windows explorer or run it from an Administrative Command Prompt. Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine 1. Double click on the VMware Workstation 12 Player icon on your desktop and click “Create a New Virtual Machine”. Choose “I will install the operating system later” at the How will you install screen…. 2. Select Apple Mac OS X as the Guest operating system and OS X 10.11 as the version. By default, an OS X 10.11 folder will be created in your Documents\Virtual Machines folder. 3. Under Specify Disk Capacity, you can leave the default 40GB or set a larger value. I personally store the virtual disk as a single file. Click Finish and you will see OS X 10.11 on the Main Screen of Workstation 12. 4. Next, we need to edit the virtual machine settings to map the virtual SATA CD/DVD drive to the El Capitan installation iso we created earlier. 5. To prevent the virtual machine from crashing in Windows, the virtualHW.version set in the vmx configuration file needs to be changed from 12 to 10 (alternatively, the line smc.version = "0" can be added to the file). The OS X 10.11.vmx file can be edited with the WordPad program (navigate to the OS X 10.11 virtual machine folder with Windows Explorer and right click on the file to open in WordPad). 6. For HW10, set USB compatibility to USB 2.0, otherwise your mouse and keyboard might not work in the virtual machine. 7. Finally click “Play virtual machine” Installation of El Capitan 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’ve named the 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 and the VM will automatically reboot… 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. You should eject the Installation iso now by right clicking and selecting “Eject OS X Base System”. This will allow you to install VMware Tools…. 8. After rebooting, the VM can now be resized or run at full screen resolution. Audio and network/internet should also work OOB. SMBIOS Customization and iMessage Vars To make the Virtual Machine more "Mac like", you can edit the vmx file to add unique identifiers from a real Mac's SMBIOS - eg for an iMac 11,3 SMBIOS, you can enter the following lines.... smbios.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id = "Mac-F2238BAE" hw.model.reflectHost = "FALSE" hw.model = "iMac11,3" serialNumber.reflectHost = "FALSE" serialNumber = "W80#######6" Refer How to spoof real Mac in VMware - Multi-booting and Virtualisation. The critical variables for iMessage/Facetime activation are MLB & ROM. By default, VMware "reflects" the host's MLB and ROM since it assumes you are running the OSX guest on a real Mac host - see post#42 by @Donk. If the host is a Windows PC, the following lines need to be added to the vmx file (requires virtualHW.version 12 and smc.version = "0").... efi.nvram.var.ROM.reflectHost = "FALSE" efi.nvram.var.MLB.reflectHost = "FALSE" system-id.enable = "TRUE" and the MLB, ROM and optionally system-id entered manually eg efi.nvram.var.MLB = "W80######BA1A" (MLB can be 13 or 17 characters long, alphanumeric string) efi.nvram.var.ROM = "<=>?@A" (ROM is entered here as a 6 character ASCII string) uuid.bios = "## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##-## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##" <---Optional (if you want to inject a given system-id hexadecimal value) Note the output for ROM from imessage_debug is a 12 character hexadecimal that needs to be entered here as a 6 character ASCII string eg using an Hex to ASCII converter we find that "3c3d3e3f4041" hex is equivalent to "<=>?@A". Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite 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... Enjoy Update for Sierra 10.12 The above settings still work for macOS Sierra after upgrading to VMware Workstation 12.5 and unlocker 2.0.8 - see post #13. Update for High Sierra 10.13 See post#30 & post#41 which describes how to build "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on the fly from installer files downloaded beforehand in /SharedSupport folder.

CPU: i7 6800k @4.0Ghz GPUs: GTX 1080 Ti and GTX 1060 3GB (each one a monitor, because I can't get DVI to run parallel with DP on the 1080Ti, and my second monitor only has DVI/VGA) OS: High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C88) / Clover revision: 4392 Hello everybody, I occasionally have system crashes and suspect that it is related to RAM. However, this RAM is completely new, and a run with MemTest86+ from the USB stick showed no errors. However, if I use Memtest on MacOS, I get a bunch of error messages, but sometimes none (I restart the computer between tests). As I just discovered, my RAM is not on the recommended vendor list of my motherboard, nor is it on the manufacturer side of the RAM. I have read several times that the RAM may not have been tested by the manufacturer on this platform. Not a single X99 motherboard is listed for this RAM. So I also suspect that my RAM is not compatible. But if that were the case, how could it sometimes work completely error-free? During RAM tests in summer 2017 (a slightly different setup, 4x8GB but still G.Skill Ripjaws V) I had no errors at Memtest under MacOS, if I remember correctly. At that time it ran under Sierra 10.12.6. AptioMemoryFix.efi could also cause problems. I am appreciative for any help! Here is an excerpt from a faulty test. It is noticeable that it is always the same address during the test, but a different one after each test.

  13. With the purpose of running the beloved Apple Mac OS X on our Intel ASUS laptop I am writing this guide to share my experience and knowledge about this Hackintosh. This tutorial applies to running versions between 10.9 and 10.11.6, focusing specially in El Capitan. This method applies also for Sierra but at the moment my WiFi Card doesn't work well with 10.12 so I chose to remain in a stable Mac OS X I have 99% functionality: What Works : WiFi, Bluetooth, Airdrop, HandOff, FindMyMac (WiFi card has to be replaced, I put a BCM94352HMB) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated HD4400 graphics Trackpad with 1finger, 2finger, 3finger and 4finger gestures Keyboard (Perfect with Volume, Brightness, Play/Pause, Numpad working) Battery Percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI audio DVD Drive HDMI audio and video VGA out iMessage and FaceTime Recovery Partition What is not working Internal SD Card Reader When you install Clover Bootloader to your USB media or HDD you should select the following options: - Install for UEFI booting only - Install Clover in the ESP - Drivers64UEFI (Fat-64, OSxAptioFix2Drv) After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folder In the above mentioned “other” folder place the kexts that I will quote next, please note that the kexts marked in red are the absolute necessary ones for booting Mac OS X installer , the rest should only be installed afterwards, after having Mac OS X installed to your hard drive and directly to /System/Library/Extensions : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext BrcmPatchRAM (Mavericks) or BrcmPatchRAM2 (Yosemite or later) CodecCommander.kext DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext (Only for El Capitan) FakePCIID_IntelHDMIaudio.kext FakePCIID_BroadcomWiFI.kext (makes my BCM94352HMB work) FakePCIID_IntelHDGraphics.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) IntelBacklight.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext (Only for El Capitan) After all the kexts necessary are in the correct folder, proceed to mimic my config.plist Note that the Kext patches included only work for El Capitan. If you want older version support, post here and I can help. I recommend using Clover Configurator App config.plist.zip For your SMBIOS choose MacbookPro11,2 and shake those serial numbers to really get a genuine one. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin in your USB you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch I recommend patching these tables before installing Mac OS X in order to have a better user experience and better functionality as well as a cleaner and smoother install. Your computer may not even reach the installer since we have no way of disabling our discrete NVIDIA Geforce 820m without getting our hands dirty in DSDT patches. Delete all files that don’t start with DSDT or SSDT- If you have an SSDT with an x just delete it because it is dynamically loaded and so does not need our attention. Place the files in our interest in a folder and: cd /path/to/a/folder iasl -da -dl *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors. In the latest BIOS we have the following errors: DSDT- We will find 4 errors The parse op Zero errors can be fixed by deleting all the “Zero” you find in the conflicting place The remaining two errors are fixed by applying the ADBG fix from RehabMan repo SSDT-1- We find many errors and all can be fixed by applying the patch “Remove _PSS placeholders” SSDT-12- We find an error related to a specific sector of a cryptic DOS device, we can safely delete these following lines from the SSDT Now that all our ACPI tables are nice and clean we can proceed to patching First of all, open all the tables at the same time and hit Command + F to bring up the Find Replace dialog box and Find:GFX0 and Replace it with: IGPU Find:B0D3 and Replace it with HDAU Do this in all the tables, so the renames are the same in all your tables When that is done, apply the following patches to the DSDT: Use the patch "DTGP" (you can easily find it with our friend Google ) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix Windows 8” Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “7-8 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x0D" Use the patch "Igpu Brightness Fix" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" When you have applied the Audio Layout Patch just Find: layout and it should show the only result, then make that part look like mine, so that you can use AppleALC for native on the fly audio If you want HDMI audio you should open SSDT-10 and find layout again and make it look like the one you just edited in DSDT, we do this because we want layout-id 29 instead of layout-id 3 For battery percentage you should use the ASUS N55SL/Vivobook patch Finally when you did all that you should follow RehabMan’s tutorial for Disabling Discrete Graphics Cards, on a web which I am not allowed to mention. This will give you much more battery life and a lot less heat. You should read it properly and you will notice there is close to no difference between his example and our laptop so it will be easier than it looks like. Make sure you also use the patch he posts to fix shutdown and sleep when our NVIDIA is disabled. After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and cd /path/to/where/your/patched/tables/are Then delete all the original aml files And then iasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load it Place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" as I did in the attached config.plist. Before installing Mac OS X make sure in your BIOS you have legacy mode disabled and you have secure boot and fast boot also disabled, so that Clover works well. Also make sure the controller is set to AHCI mode. Remember to use a GUID partition table on your Hard Drive and if you plan to dual boot just create two Mac OS Extended Journaled partitions, don't create any Fat partition using Disk Utility cause that will leave you unable to install Windows in UEFI mode. Post-Install Finally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh (this can only be done when you have installed Mac OS X) https://github.com/P...ha/ssdtPRGen.sh Add it to the Sorted Order and you are done Make sure to set the hibernate mode to either 0 or 2 . ​You can copy the colour profiles from ASUS Splendid Utility and use them in Mac OS X, but for my eyes, I prefer the default LCD one This is the first fully functional Hackintosh I ever accomplished and it took me a few months of learning… I am using Mac OS X for about two or more years in this Hack and I am still in love like the very first boot hihihi This is almost the perfect HackBook and has worked since Mountain Lion until now Hope you enjoyed!
  14.  OS X 10.11 El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony VAIO S PLEASE REFER TO THE GUIDE. I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS IF ALREADY ANSWERED IN THE GUIDE! BY FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE YOU AGREE TO TAKE THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF LOSING DATA. ALWAYS BACKUP! This guide will give you step-by-step instructions on How to Install OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Sony VAIO SVS13. Sony VAIO S13p (SVS13A2C5E) Specs: Intel Core i7-3520M 12GB SDRAM Intel HD Graphics 4000 NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M Samsung 850 Evo 250GB What's working?

Bluetooth Intel BT worked OOB but does not feature Handoff since it's not a BT4LE. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Webcam Since the Exmor sensor built in is not the best, you get a dark image in OS X. Windows uses software/drivers to increase the brightness. What's not working? Intel WiFi Apple doesn't use Intel WiFi. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Discrete graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 640M uses NVIDIA Optimus for dual-configuration which is not supported the same way on OS X. VGA Apple removed this feature in OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion SD-Card/Memory Stick Reader (no drivers for OS X) Speed/Stamina switch Fingerprint sensor (no drivers for OS X) Disc Eject/Assist/Web/VAIO buttons You need… ... an empty USB flash drive or an external hard drive (8gb at least) ... a Mac or a virtual machine with OS X (10.6.8 or later) On your Mac/OS X VM Download OS X 10.11 El Capitan from the App Store Create the OS X Installer You can actually create the OS X installer on the (external) hard drive but to keep things simple from now on I will refer to ‚USB‘. IF YOU HAVE IMPORTANT DATA ON YOUR USB, PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP! THE USB WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED! You can create the USB with either a MBR or a GPT partition scheme. If you select MBR, you will have to manually create a FAT partition for CLOVER EFI and a separate HFS+J partition for the OS X Installer. With GPT you just need 1 HFS+J partition and Disk Utility creates a hidden EFI partition. Since we will use this USB with a UEFI system, we can use GPT. On legacy system you need a MBR USB. Create Partition(s) on USB Open Disk Utility under /Applications/Utilities. Select the USB. Click on the Partition tab. Click on Partition Layout > 1 partition. Click on Options. Select GUID Partition Table. Apply with OK. Under Format select Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Under Name rename the partition to „install_osx“. Click on Apply. Click on Partition. When it’s finished creating the USB partition(s) close Disk Utility. Make OS X Installer on USB*1 Open Terminal and type this command, then press Enter: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_osx --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction You need a password for this command*2. Type your password and press Enter. This process can take several minutes, depending on the USB write speed. Mine took 5 minutes to finish. Close Terminal. You now have a OS X installer for real Macs. We need the Clover bootloader to actually boot the OS X Installer on a non-Mac system. *1 The createinstallmedia method is not supported under OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Use alternative methods. *2 If you don't have a password (blank), you need to set one under System Preferences > User & Groups > Change Password Install Clover to USB Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Open the Clover installer package. Click on Continue, Continue. Click on Change Install Location. Select your USB drive now called ‚Install OS X El Capitan’. Don't select the internal Hard Drive on your real Mac/VM! Click on Continue. Click on Customize. Check ‚Install for UEFI booting only‘. ‚Install Clover in the ESP‘ will be selected automatically and installed to the hidden EFI partition. Under Drivers64UEFI check ‚OsxAptioFixDrv2-64‘. Optional: Install BlueMac under Themes. Click on Install. Type your password. Click on Install Software. When it’s finished, press Close.

  15. Manually install Clover for UEFI booting and configure boot priority with EasyUEFI in Windows This tutorial will show how to manually install Clover in the EFI system partition of a pre-existing install of UEFI Windows. In the process, you will also learn how to mount the EFI partition and add Clover as a UEFI boot option (using the EasyUEFI program) in Windows. Prerequisites 1. CloverISO from Sourceforge. 2. 7-Zip for Windows 3. EasyUEFI 4. Existing UEFI install of Windows X64 (7,8,8.1 or 10) Obtain Clover 1. Download the CloverISO.tar.lzma file from Sourceforge and open the file with 7-Zip. 2. Extract the Clover subfolder to your \Downloads with 7-Zip. 3. Copy the Clover folder by right clicking on its icon in Windows File Explorer. Mounting the EFI System Partition and installing Clover 1. Open an administrative command prompt by clicking the Windows start button, typing cmd and right clicking on the search result as shown below... 2. Type the following commands, followed by <Enter> after each line: diskpart list disk select disk # (where # is the disk number of the disk with UEFI Windows) list partition select partition x (where x is the partition number of the EFI system partition. By default, it is usually the 100MB second partition) assign letter=s exit 3. Open Windows Task Manager as administrator by clicking the Windows start button, typing taskmgr and right clicking on the search result as shown below... 4. Click Run new task 5. Click Browse and in the Browse window, navigate to the EFI folder in the System Partition (which is mapped to drive S:) and also select "All files" from the drop down menu... 6. Right click inside the EFI folder to "paste" the Clover folder we downloaded earlier. If necessary, you can make edits to Clover's default config.plist with Wordpad or add OSX kexts like FakeSMC into the \kexts\other folder while still in the Task Manager browse window. For UEFI booting into OSX, you will most likely need the OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi or OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi driver in EFI\CLOVER\drivers64UEFI (copy from the \CLOVER\drivers-Off\drivers64UEFI folder). 7. Quit Task Manager. Add Clover as a UEFI Boot Option using the EasyUEFI Program 1. Open EasyUEFI and click on the small icon with the plus sign (second from top) to add a new entry. 2. In the Create Boot Entry Window, choose "Linux or other OS" as the entry type, click to select the EFI System partition as the target and browse to the CLOVERX64.efi file (file path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi) as shown below... 3. Type Clover in the Description field then the OK button. 4. You will now see the new Clover entry on the main GUI of EasyUEFI. Click on the entry and then click the small up arrow icon to move Clover to the top so it will get priority over the Windows Boot Manager on boot up. Note on this screen, you can also delete/edit/disable boot entries or move them down the boot order. 5. Click the power menu and select reboot to restart your system (use your system's boot device selection key to choose the drive with CLOVER installed if necessary eg F12 for Gigabyte motherboards, F8 for ASUS motherboards, F11 for ASrock motherboards) ---> will now be presented with the Clover Main Menu GUI to boot Windows (or OSX). Enjoy and Good Hack !

  19. I have got an old Acer Aspire 7720G from a fellow. Since it took me a while to figure out how to make a working system I have decided to share this experience with somebody who may have similar setup. The specs are: CPU: T7500 Graphics: nVidia Geforce 9500M GS Display: 17''WUXGA 1920x1200 Ethernet: Broadcom Sound: Realtek ALC268 WiFi: Intel 4965 AGN (not working) Finally I got almost everything working (Ethernet, sound incl. mic, camera, etc) which work without issues. Two things which I could not make natively function are WiFi and sleep. Create installation media: Use 16GB USB stick, formatted via Disk Utility as FAT32 and MBR partition scheme Install Clover to USB in Legacy mode with the following settings: Remove all subfolders in EFI/CLOVER/kexts except /Others Place required kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Others. FakeSMC.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext Replace VBoxHfs-64.efi with HFSPlus.efi in EFI/Clover/drivers64 and EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI Place standard config.plist with nVidia settings in EFI/Clover (see attached config.plist.zip) Copy El Capitan installation to USB using Terminal (assuming you have already downloaded El Capitan from Apple store): sudo "/Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/USB_NAME --applicationpath "/Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app" --nointeraction Install OS X: Boot from created USB and use Disk Utility to format your hard drive as Apple HFSJ+ and GPT partition scheme. Finish the install, takes about 45 min with two reboots regardless of '1 minute' showing. This will also create the Recovery partition. Post Install: Install Clover to your HDD with the following settings: Mount EFI partition if not yet mounted Repeat steps 3 to 6 from above procedure when creating installation media For ALC268 place the patched AppleHDA.kext into S/L/E replacing the original one (see this thread if you need more details). Note that you will have to repeat this step each time you install an update from Apple. Add other kexts to EFI/Clover/kexts/Others: BCM5722D.kext for Ethernet (search for this kext) - required to set up iMessage HDAEnabler3.kext for ALC268 Disable SIP, repair permissions, clear caches and reboot from your HDD. Other issues & solutions: 1. I had an issue with booting from HDD because the old BIOS doesn't boot the GPT disk when none of partition is set active. If you get 'No bootable device' error or similar then boot from your USB again and use fdisk in Terminal to set the active flag: sudo fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 p f 1 w y quit WARNING: This method may break your Windows installation if you have it installed on the same GPT drive. 2. The walkaround with WiFi is to use external USB dongle, like cheap D-Link 140 with BearExtender-R515 driver. But I personally decided to replace my wireless card with Atheros 9280 and forget about wifi issue forever (you can use any of natively supported cards, they are widely available at eBay). 3. If for some reason you do not get the full 1920x1200 resolution in Clover boot screen you should set EDID in Clover config using the procedure below: Get your EDID from Terminal ioreg -l | grep IODisplayEDID Paste the output into CustomEDIT section of your config.plist. Optional: Set PatchVBios to true. 4. You will have to generate your own SMBIOS values as well as ROM & MLB to get iMessage and other Apple services working. Use Mac3,1 or Mac4,1 depending on your CPU and video. UPDATE 1: 5. If you want your battery to show correct values you will have to patch DSTD. Get instructions and my patch from RehubMan. UPDATE 2: Acer 7720G will not work with Sierra or later, unless you have upgraded your CPU to at least T9300 and changed SMBIOS profile to Mac4,1 or higher. Good luck!
  20. 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.

  23. Hi there. I'm new to this site but not totally new to hack. I've had a hack since 10.4 and the latest version I ran was 10.9, not totally fixed but it worked to what I needed. Now I want to make the machine run as good as it can. I can see there has been a lot of changes/upgrades/new solutions since I installed my hack and I have a hard time to catch up. I've been able to boot and install macOSX and now I need the POST installation. I tried to install the clover EFI boot loader with these settings: and found the DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml from HERE found the apfs.efi and placed it in EFI -> EFI -> CLOVER -> driver64 and these kext in here: But when I boot it up this is the first bootscreen I have. No partions, no mouse control, no nothing. if I exit clover this screen appear. and now everything works. What is wrong? Cheers Soren

Ciro82==>>Thanks Uno dei tre Requisiti: Hack funzionante Mac vero Macchina virtuale Impostazioni Bios per il boot: Cercate una voce del tipo “Sata Mode”e settatela in AHCI Secure Boot: disabilitare o altri sistemi operativi CSM: UEFI o LEGACY, oppure a secondo del tipo di installazione VT-x / VT-d disable *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI Materiale Occorrente "OS X (Versione App.Store)” USB 8GB *nota: nel caso di usb superiori dovrà essere partizionata, in modo da avere una partizione su cui "lavoreremo,di questa dimensione ShowAllfiles kext Wizard Bootloader Clover_2.3k_r xxx: http: //sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/ Clover Configurator: http: //mackie100proj...a.org/download/ FakeSmc.kext: https://github.com/kozlek/HWSensors/releases In allegato,a fondo pagina troverete un "pacchetto" contenente : ShowAllfiles, Kext Wizard, FakeSmc.kext: App alternative: ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3: Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB. “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE” PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled. 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 usate --> C_I_M Alternativa: potete usare anche lo script che ho fatto --> C_I_M.zip 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 10.13.... 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 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. Immagine ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI** =========================== Per installazione Legacy Immagine =========================== Impostazione per config.plist: Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb. 1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI” 2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition” Immagine 3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist 4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2 Immagine 5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1 Immagine 6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67 Immagine 7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES Immagine =========================== Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection) Info: =========================== Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”. Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched Immagine  Per High Sierra: Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo: --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post: Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb Utenti Laptop: Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb -------------------------------------------------------------------- Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX. ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot...... *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, 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 **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti) Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26 Post installazione... post #2 Buon Hack…..  Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12) le info le trovate a questo post Ringrazio @Ciro82 che mi ha aiutato nel preparare questa guida.
