Unfortunately, this project has come to a halt, at least for now. I don't have enough time to work on the project and it's lacking behind, so please don't use it for configuring OpenCore, it will produce broken configuration files. I will leave the source code on GitHub, so in case someone wants to take over the project, they can. original post: OpenCore Configurator Source
delioroman posted a topic in Installation GuidesAcer Aspire M5-583P-XXXX using Clover This guide will remain a work in progress as long as updates are pushed out and kinks are ironed out. If you have the same laptop, feel free to share your input if something could be improved on. I will update this guide as best as I can for future updates, fixes, etc. Working: • Graphics - Intel HD 4400 via DSDT patch, FakePCIID method, and Clover injection • Touchscreen • Display Brightness - via RehabMan's SSDT patch and ACPIBacklight method • Built-in Camera • Airport • Sound - HDMI Audio, headphone, microphone, and function keys (vol +/vol -) are functional • HDMI port • Trackpad • Sleep/Wake up • Battery • All USB ports including the USB3 port in the back Let's get started! Things you will need before getting started include: • 8GB+ USB flash drive For the main installation of Clover and Yosemite • * Atheros AR5B95 WiFi card (no built-in bluetooth) The installed Intel WiFi + Bluetooth card will NOT work on OS X • A working installation of OS X (be it an actual Mac or Hackintosh) To set up all necessary files * I chose to install the Atheros AR5B95 WiFi card because I had a spare laptop that was not being used. I swapped the cards out based off of convenience. You can choose any Yosemite compatible WiFi card from this guide here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html If you choose my route and you go with the Atheros AR5B95, the process of installing is as easy as plug n’ play. There’s no unlocking the BIOS or any of that. If you choose to go another route and choose a different WiFi card, please post your results and directions here. I will try to make this the one stop solution for this laptop. Preparing the OS X Yosemite USB Installer 1. You will need to download the Yosemite image from the App Store For this installation, we will be using the 10.10.4 version of Yosemite. 2. Once the Yosemite image has downloaded, it will appear in your Applications folder. Verify to make sure it’s there and the size (5.68 GB) is correct. 3. Launch Disk Utility and select your flash drive (make sure you’re selecting the overall drive, not a selected partition). • Go to the Partition tab • In the ‘Partition Layout:’ section, click ‘Current’ and select 2 Partitions • Still in the ‘Partition Layout’ section, select partition ‘UNTITLED 1’ • Moving to the right side, in the ‘Partition Information’ section, type CLOVER for the name • For the format, leave as MS-DOS (FAT) • For the size, enter 0.3 • Click the ‘Options…’ button and select GUID Partition Table • In the ‘Partition Layout:’ section, now select the ‘UNTITLED 2’ partition • Back to the right side, in the ‘Partition Information’ section, type YOSEMITE for the name • For the format, select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) • For the size, leave as is (values will be different here because of different flash drive sizes) • Click the ‘Options…’ button and select GUID Partition Table • Click the ‘Apply’ button to begin formatting You will see the process begin and your newly formatted partitions will be mounted automatically. • You can now close Disk Utility 4. Now it's time to download and run my OS X USB FD Configurator application. Download my OS X USB FD Configurator application here: https://github.com/delioroman/OS-X-Yosemite-on-Acer-Aspire-M5-583P-XXXX-using-Clover Screenshots: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- IMPORTANT: In order for OS X USB FD Configurator to work properly, it must be placed in your user directory (~). An easy way to locate this folder is to: • Select Finder in the Dock • On the top menu bar click ‘Go’ • Then click ‘Go to Folder…’ Type in: ~ • Press Enter You will see a new window pop up with folders such as ‘Documents’, ‘Downloads’, and ‘Music’. You’re in the right folder. Extract the .zip file to that location alongside all of those folders. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I created OS X USB FD Configurator to automate the process for you. It will: • Configure the Clover EFI boot loader onto the CLOVER partition All patched files will be automatically installed onto the partition as well. • Install the ‘Install OS X Yosemite’ image onto the YOSEMITE partition. Follow the directions given to you by OS X USB FD Configurator. After my application is done, you will have a ready to be booted OS X Yosemite Installer. I wrote this application specifically for the Acer Aspire M5-583P-XXXX. Don’t use this for any other laptop, it may not boot properly. Installing OS X Yosemite Now it’s time to begin the installation process! Now that our USB drive is ready to be booted, we have to set some things up in the BIOS. 1. Boot the laptop and tap F2 until you are presented with the BIOS screen. • In the ‘Main’ tab, make sure ‘F12 Boot Menu’ is Enabled and ‘SATA Mode’ is set to AHCI Mode. • In the ‘Boot’ tab, make sure ‘Secure Boot:’ is set to Disabled. This will allow Clover to launch successfully. • Now, go to the ‘Exit’ tab and select Exit Saving Changes. The laptop will now reboot. 2. When the laptop reboots, be sure to tap on the F12 button until you’re presented with the ‘Boot Manager’ screen. Select the flash drive in which you've created. 3. When you select the USB drive, you will be presented with Clover. Select the partition ‘YOSEMITE’ and press Enter to begin the boot process! Be patient during the boot process. It may seem like it got stuck, but don’t worry, you will soon be presented with the OS X installer screen. When you are greeted with the Welcome screen of OS X, be sure to select your preferred language to use during the installation process. By the way, your touchscreen should be working! Give it a test run. 4. Now you’ll be presented with the OS X logo stating “To set up installation of OS X, click Continue” We’re not going to click Continue just yet. Go to ‘Utilities’ at the top and select Disk Utility. 5. Select your laptops internal hard drive (NOT the usb drive). • Select the Partition tab. • Make sure 1 Partition is selected • Name your drive whatever you wish (ex: Macintosh HD is the default name for all Mac primary partitions). • Make sure the Format is set to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) • Click the ‘Options…’ button and select GUID Partition Table and click ‘OK’. • Click the ‘Apply’ button to begin the format process. • Once formatting is complete, you can now close Disk Utility. 6. Now, we can press the ‘Continue’ button. From here to the end of installation it should be self explanatory for you. Follow the directions and be sure to select your newly formatted hard drive as your installation destination. Installation will take a while so go ahead and grab a bite to eat! Booting Yosemite for the very first time 1. Once installation is complete you will be prompted to restart your computer. Restart and tap the F12 button upon reboot. Select the USB flash drive and you will be prompted with Clover, once again. This time, you will see a new addition which is your new installation of Yosemite. Select that drive and press enter. You will now boot Yosemite from your hard drive for the first time! 2. Once your OS X has fully booted, follow the remaining directions to set up your new ‘Mac’. After you have finished, you will then be presented with the Yosemite desktop. I’m sure you’re pretty excited at this point. We only have a couple more things to do to finalize our installation. Post Installation 1. Now it's time to format our EFI partition. Go to: Applications/Utilities/Terminal (a Spotlight search will work too) Type in: diskutil This will list ALL drives and partitions recognized by OS X. In here we will be looking for our ‘EFI’ partition. It will be located under the ‘IDENTIFIER’ section. Be absolutely sure you select the correct partition. * For example, let's say EFI was disk0s2 Now copy/paste or type in the following in Terminal: sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/rdisk0s2 Press Enter and wait till Terminal completes. 2. It's now time to run my OS X Post Installation Configurator package to finalize the installation. Download my OS X Post Installation Configurator package here: https://github.com/delioroman/OS-X-Yosemite-on-Acer-Aspire-M5-583P-XXXX-using-Clover My package installer installs the following: • patched EFI folder • Clover Configurator • Kext Utility My post installer will install ALL necessary files to get Graphics, Network, Sound, etc, working. DSDT and SSDT patches will also be installed as well. Reconfiguring the BIOS The very last step is to set the BIOS back up. I don't believe this step is absolutely necessary. I did it just for piece of mind. If your laptop boots the main HD with Clover, with no problems, then you're good to go. If you still wish to continue, you're more than welcome. In this step we will point BIOS to the BOOTX64.efi file. This will add Clover as a trusted executable. Reboot the laptop and tap F2 Go to the 'Security' tab Select 'Set Supervisor Password' and set a password you will not forget. Keep it simple. A 4-digit password will be more than enough. Now select 'Select a UEFI file as trusted for executing' and press Enter Navigate to the BOOTX64.efi file in the EFI partition Go to the 'Exit' tab and select Exit Saving Changes Congrats! You are done!
2,354 downloadsThis app can be used to edit or create custom versions of the voodoo tsc sync kext, i have created it because i have seen many times peoples having troubles in finding the right version of voodoo tsc sync for their cpu, so i created a mac app that lets to edit or create a voodoo tsc kext and configure it for your system, i have included 3 ways to edit the kext: 1) configure using one of the existing templates (just chose one of the cpu models listed) 2) specifying the number of logical cores (threads) 3) manually editing the info.plist of the kext using the editor (still experimental, needs some improvements) This app uses a copy of the VoodooTSCSync in his Resourches folder, or you can open an existing version of VoodooTSC and edit it, there are some other useful features to discover, and new ideas are also welcome to improve this program, i know that with a plist editor you can do what this app does, but this is designed to be more user friendly than editing a plist file manually and just for accomplish the task of configuring this kext for your machines without looking on the web for that specific pre-configured version you need, just download this program and follow a few steps.

I would like to make an official public request to Slice's team, that developed the great boot loader that we all know as Clover. We all love their work, and it's thanks to them that we can do what we do in a much easier and reliable way. I have three different requests in mind at this time for the team, and it's things that I've noticed that could improve this piece of software by a lot: 1st. Maybe we could have a section in Clover Configurator for AMD builds, and AMD processors. Just like we patch the kernel on the fly for locked MSR we could maybe patch it for AMD support, taking knowledge of the amazing AMD forums we have here. 2nd. Wouldn't it be nicer to have simply a black or white screen in Clover entry, instead of that little ugly font text saying "Welcome to Clover.. rev 3338" before the Clover Gui begins? 3rd. Could we figure out why can't we on a Hackintosh with El Capitan or Yosemite get the Grey on Grey apple logo at start up to work properly like it does in a Mac, even with kext patches on the fly being used and fixes tried but it doesn't work ok with Custom Logo: Apple ,instead of the white on black one that works perfectly when applying one little fix? I feel everyone should be free to speak their mind, and even if no-one is here to listen, i spoke my mind. thanks for all your work Clover devs..
