  1. Hi people, I'm having some issues getting my hackintosh to work 100%. It's at 99%, and the only problem that I have is with shutdown/restart. Whenever I try to shutdown or restart my computer, it will go to the spinner screen, and in the case of a shutdown, the spinner will just be stuck and the computer will not shutdown, while in the case of a restart the spinner will be just a sad line of 2 or 4 white pixels in the bottom half of the screen, with the computer also failing to do anything else, forcing me to either shut down the PSU using it's on/off switch or by pressing the case's restart button. I may also add that I, before buying a RX 570, had a working setup with the UHD 630, it would shutdown/restart without a problem (if the primary video output port in the bios was set to PCI01). I have also made an USB SSDT patch for the 15-port limit, but that has not helped. Anyways, here's my setup: MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G84) SMBIOS iMac19,2 (if that matters) i3-8100 UHD 630 (Device ID 0x3E98, enabled in bios) Gigabyte RX 570 Gigabyte B360M-D3H No extra PCI cards Also, my config.plist, my USB SSDT patch, and a screenshot of my kexts and drivers folders are attached. config.plist SSDT_USB.aml
  2. First Hackintosh ever and first PC build in a very long time. Initial setup worked OOB, but tweaking—especially Thunderbolt—was somewhat painful at times. I hope this helps others too I set this up for video production and image processing, not for gaming, so some parts of the system might look wimpy and others will be overkill. Also, I plan to dial back some of the overclocking; these settings are as far as I could go. The links are meant to see the exact same product as I used, but are not affiliate links—nor do I endorse anything. I'm just sending you to places where you can see what I tried and used.

WBTUO LM900 Micro USB3.0 TO M.2 PCI-E SSD Enclosure NGFF M-KEY PCIE Support AHCI for 2230 2242 2260 2280 SSD; I got it for an extra M-key PCIe SSD that I had. It turns out that this item cannot host NVMe, which wasn’t stated up front. PwrLink Adpt Graphics Cd Acces 600-PL-2816-LR ; angled power-bracket for EVGA 1080, worked great with regular 330R panel, but when I decided to install a ventilated 300R panel with fans, the bracket and the fans interfered. So I took it out. The bottom PCI 1x slot shares/blocks a SATA connector. That is not documented in the manual and I therefore got the Vantec card to compensate for the lost SATA Ports Installing the Alpine Ridge card essentially voids the lower M.2 slot. It should share bandwidth, but apparently the Alpine Ridge card only runs at 4x, so you have to leave the lower M.2 slot empty for Thunderbolt to work. Installing a USB 3.1 Gen 2 header cable (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAE4P6PP9074) will deactivate Thunderbolt. Not only that, it will reset any driver memory. If you have Thunderbolt working, do not touch that connector. Just don’t.

Great card, highly recommended, but in my case, it took a slot that dropped the GPU to 8x, so I had to find a 1x PCI solution. Thunderbolt: boot into Windows and connect a Thunderbolt device; I used an OWC TB 2 dock. When recognized, reboot into Mac OS X; I used a G-Drive TB 2 drive for that, as the OWC didn’t show up. Once the G-Drive showed up, I was able to hot-add the dock. No issues since (aside from using the internal USB 3.1 Gen 2 header, which led to a big mess; see next item). Note that if you disconnect the computer from power, you will have to boot into Windows again and connect a Thunderbolt device again prior to booting into Mac OS X. Chenyang USB 3.1 Front Panel Header to USB 3.0 20Pin Header Extension Cable 20cm for ASUS Motherboard, https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAE4P6PP9074&ignorebbr=1, $18.88; replaced SilverStone board for internal 19-pin, freeing up one 16x PCIe slot. This disables the Thunderbolt header, as reported in other forums (and if you even try that port, you will have to go through the whole Thunderbolt install process again…). I also tried a header splitter cable, https://www.moddiy.com/products/20%252dPin-USB-3.0-Internal-Header-Y-Splitter-Cable-%2812cm%29.html, but that didn't work either.

Works for me, but use at your own peril! EVGA 1080 apparently doesn’t store OC settings in memory; you have to either ( a ) reset every time or ( b ) flash to BIOS. For ( a ) there is no software that I can find for MacOS; maybe someone knows how to port Nvidiux or similar utilities for command-line setup. For ( b ), NVIDIA apparently have locked Pascal boards for BIOS mods, so you can’t set up the board in Windows, flash it, and maintain settings in MacOS X. Benchmarks, snapshots, BIOS settings (partial), and config (serial changed) are attached. Many thanks to @joevt for advice and ideas while dealing with Thunderbolt and to @glasgood for a terrific guide when it came to fine-tuning. config-changed serial.plist.zip
  3. Hello there everyone. I recently put together a CL hackintosh for a somebody else and it mostly works fine; however, he's been having a problem that I (so far) haven't been able to replicate. He sometimes gets odd beachballs that end up freezing the computer into needing a cold shutdown and boot; which usually in turn freeze halfway through the boot process only for a reboot to work. Recently he mentioned this happened after several hours of sleep (left the computer sleeping during the night), so I'll try reproducing it later. However, I'm trying to figure out what the actual problem might be. I've got a theory: Wake-up issues with the NVME controller. Why? I've been experiencing similar issues on my real MBP (2011) because the secondary HD ribbon cable has been coming loose. Of course, since it's just a secondary drive, it's a large inconvenience but it doesn't completely shut the computer down. It would certainly be different if this was happening with the primary drive, though. What do people think about this? It's the first time I've built a hackintosh with modern hardware (my own is Ivy Bridge) and I'd never tried NVME before, so there's been plenty of trial and error involved in this build. Stats: CPU: i7-8700 MB: Gigabyte Z370-HD3P RAM: 32 GB DDR4 Video: Asus RX580 Drives: Samsung 940 EVO, 2x 1TB HDDs. Wifi/BT: BCM94331 Other than this issue, pretty much everything seems to be working fine on 10.13.2 (with the exception of the CPU saying Unknown on "About this Mac" but I guess that's cosmetic and expected)
  4. Hi all guys I need your help and I hope you can help me I took the road to install High Sierra on my new build and now I have some doubt / difficulty I do not know how to solve. My configuration: 8700K Asrock Z370 Professional Gaming i7 AMD RX580 Nitro+ 8GB First I created the usb pendrive and I used Clover with the following configurations: Bootflag: dart=0 -v Kext: Bios Setting: VT-d = Disabled Share Memory = 128MB IGPU Multi-Monitor = Enabled XHCI Hand-off = Enabled SMBIOS: iMac18,3 So far no problem, it started successfully, I initialized the hdd in APFS and I ran the installation. Once finished, it started and I made the first configuration successfully. At this point I configured Clover the same way as the installation: Bootflag: dart=0 disablegfxfirmware shikigva=4 -rad4200 darkwake=8 Devices: Graphics: Kernel and Kext Patches: SMBIOS: iMac18,3 Kext: I reboot and start without problems, but I know there is some problem to solve ... for example, the video card seems to recognize it but if I run a benchmark with "Novabench" I noticed that the GPU is recognized as 1GB: With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": || || || I tried to delete "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled" and I recognize the card differently but the same problem presents itself: || || || Why is it recognized by 1GB instead of 8GB? While on System Profiler is recognized by 8GB .... I'm doing something wrong? I tried to enable also "Hardware Encoding & HEVC Support" but I noticed a detail that I do not know if it's right or not (Hardware Info "MacX Video Converter Pro"): Without "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled": With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": [COMING SOON SCREENSHOT] Is it normal that this occurs? Which one is correct? I'm going completely in confusion I'm trying to figure out if I need to make any other changes to the system, if I add some other patches to make it work properly but I do not know where to check. I'm trying to configure the DSDT but DSDT Editor and MaciASL do not work, they do not open the DSDT.aml file generated by AIDA64. Do you know how to give me a hand? I'm banging my head for 2 days I thank you in advance for the help and I apologize for my english I hope I was clear
  5. Hello,I have MSI Z370M MORTAR / Intel Core i5-8600K with the internal GPU connected to 27" LG 27UD59-W via DP. Everything works fine with Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup and SMBIOS set to iMac 18,1 (GPU was glitching with 18,2 or 18,3 ).The problem is I can only select 1920x1080 HiDPI resolution or then go all the way to 3840×2160. I tried both System Preferences and RDM app - 2560x1440 HiDPI is not available (only blurry non HiDPI version). If I connect to the same monitor Macbook Pro 13 retina 2015 (also via DP) it is available, it's also available with my other hackintosh that is using NVidia GPU.Any help is greatly appreciated
  6. Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630 flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000 Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM? I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

ADVICE With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly. I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence. Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card. Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC. With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well. Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly. My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why. Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.
  7. Hello, I just finished hackintosh installation on my computer with below configuration, CPU : Intel i5 8400 MOBO : ASUS ROX STRIX H370-F GAMING GPU : On board Intel UHD 630 RAM : 8 GB Crucial SSD : 240 GB WD PS : Corsair VS550W Cabinet : Corsair 100R OS : High Sierra 10.13.5 Everything is working fine except Graphics full acceleration, i get only 7 MB GPU. Tried with IntelGraphicsFix, Lilu.. and other Kexts.. but nothing is working. Any help to get full GPU would be appreciated. Thanks
  8. Hi, I've managed to install high sierra successfully on the following hardware: -Asrock Z370m-itx/ac -i3-8100 -Corsair Vengeance ddr4-2666 8gb -Samsung 850 evo 250gb -Zotac 1050ti mini 4gb However I've the following issues when attempting to pair the logitech T651 trackpad with the hackintosh. -Used motherboard's built-in bluetooth to pair with trackpad, trackpad works like normal mouse without gestures. Installed logitech options for trackpad gestures support. After installation, trackpad works fine with all gestures provided by logitech options. After a restart prompted by logitech options, computer froze after log-in and reboots everytime it pairs up with the trackpad. Only when the trackpad is shut off would the computer stop freezing and rebooting during start up. -I initially thought it was an issue with the on-board bluetooth and purchased the GMYLE usb bluetooth dongle to take over the bluetooth functions on the computer, but to no avail. Issues above still persist. So it appears that the default pairing of the trackpad to the desktop allows it to work without any hiccups, but only as a normal trackpad/mouse. Logitech options would grant it the full suite of gestures, but there seems to be a clash of drivers/kexts? on startup that cause the system to freeze and reboot during start-up. I'm at wit's end on how I should proceed as I'm quite new to the hackintosh scene Can somebody kindly point me in the right direction on how I should go about troubleshooting and resolving the issue such that I can utilise gestures on the trackpad? Much appreciated!
