  1. Introduction The H370 chipset powers 8th generation Intel Core-i CPUs. Even though the name H370 rings comparable to Z370, the H370 is based on newer silicon. This it also requires some new approaches compared to the Z370. An example would be on-die USB 3.1 and WiFi support. Since this guide is not a "hold-your-hand-every-step" guide, I assume you know: Clover installation and configuration How to create an install medium for MacOS Access and configure the BIOS Have heard of ACPI patching (I'm a newb at this myself) What works Sleep (via DSDT edits and emulated NVRAM) On-board Audio (via AppleALC and native AppleHDA) Native power management (without any kext or patch) All USB ports (and only those present are active) iGPU for both acceleration and display dGPU (I'm running an Nvidia GTX 1080) Untested NIC --> I'm using WiFi only What doesn't work Native NVRAM via AptioMemoryFix.efi DMVT Pre-alloc higher than 64MB (but not necessary) Community additions User @Panzerschiffe added a helpful post, altering this guide for user with AMD cards and not needing on-board sound. He also runs Mojave, which I don't run yet. Changes to the guide: 22.5.18: Added SSDT hot-patching to enable sleep, replacing DSDT static patching as an alternative. 23.5.18: Add iMac18,1 as alternative SMBIOS config for those relying on the iGPU for output 25.6.18: Added update info 28.8.18: Small changes for clarity, changed info for afps loading & updated USB patch for 13.6 04.10.18: Update to Mojave will come once Mojave is more mature 02.12.18: Removed unnecessary patches, fakepciid and audio patch method & linked to AMD post & added whatevergreen.kext as replacement for previous GPU kexts 02.03.19: Removed unnecessary fakeid and ig_platform_id injections, ACPI patches - this is all handled by whatevergreen & lilu. In testing is a Framebuffer patch, see this post. 04.03.19: Added Germany keyboard layout and updated pre-patched DSDT.aml removed DSDT patching 1. Installation This guide heavy inspired by the work of /u/corpnewt of /r/hackintosh and his (sorta) Vanilla guide 1.1 Create the install media for MacOS Follow this, if you are using a Mac to start off with. If you are totally new to MacOS, then please check the basic guide Creation of an installer media in windows or linux 1.2 Install Clover on the install media Using the Clover installer, ensure you are installing to the USB medium you are using for the installer. Chose the following options, leaving the others on default: UEFI driver: AptioMemoryFix UEFI driver: ApfsDriverLoader UEFI booting only Install to ESP You have to get your hands on an apfs.efi. A google search can help, or extracting it from the Installer package. Make sure you procure a version matching the MacOS version you are about to install. Place the apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI. 1.2 Adjust the config.plist for the installer You can use the config.plist attached as a guideline, but take a look at it before and at least adjust the SMBIOS - otherwise it won't boot. Attention: The attached plist contains audio patches introduced by a post-install step. If you run into problems, you might remove those. It also contains a manual slide value, which should normally not be needed, but works fine for me. It is also tuned for usage with an Nvidia Pascal dGPU as main GPU. The config you create now should serve you nicely for install and running the system. Take care of adding the following basics: SMBIOS: iMac18,3 - You can generate a serial number via Clover Configurator. The creation of a proper SMBIOS is covered in many guides to good extend Note: If you aim at using the iGPU for output, a user reported that iMac18,1 works better - since iMac18,3 produces severe flicker. I'm now also testing 18,1 Look at the graphics section and adjust the injection for Intel to your situation Fixes Patches Devices Graphics Important: Change 0x59120003 to 0x59120000 if you don't use a dGPU as your main display Driver and instead use the iGPU for output. Also note. SMBIOS iMac18,1 has been reported to work better in this configuration. But 18,3 works fine for me. Kernel and Kext patches 1.3 kexts and friends Add the supplied SSDT-UAIC.aml to "patched" - it limits the injected USB Ports to the actual number and ports valid for this board. Required kexts on "Other": FakeSMC.kext Whatevergreen.kext Lilu.kext AppleALC.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext in case you're running Ethernet USBInjectAll.kext with the HCI-300-series-injector.kext --> These two should be installed to /L/E after install We are leaving sound out at the moment, this is something for post-install. 1.4 Check BIOS and install You should be ready for install. But before you reboot, please take a look at your BIOS and set it up accordingly (copied from the aforementioned guide and adapted): Load Optimized Defaults Disable VT-d setting If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it Enable CSM - This is sometimes needed to dual screens to work Set OS Type to Windows 8/10 or OtherOS - I have not seen a difference Turn off internal Serial and Parallel port Turn off Network stack for boot Turn off wake-on-lan (for now) Set XHCI Handoff to enabled Don't enable decode over 4G Depending on your GPU, set priority for boot Set internal GPU (iGPU) to enable - not auto or disabled Set DMVT pre-alloc min to 64MB and max to 128MB. For this selection to appear you might need to reboot after setting iGPU to enable Set USB legacy to enabled Activate XMP profile 1 f your Ram has it (mine doesn't and I added the timings manually) Set ERP to enable, disable platform power management (I need to do more research if this could be enabled) I've attached my current BIOS config "hack2". You can place that on a fat32 drive (the EFI partition of your install USB drive might be an idea) and see if it loads. It's made for and with the F2 BIOS. The install itself should be like other MacOS Hackintosh installs with it several reboots and ensuring to select the correct boot device in Clover. 2. Post-install 2.1 Install clover on target This is a no-brainer, but install a fresh copy of Clover on your target medium. During install select again AptioMemoryFix but also additionally EmuVariableUefi-64.efi Install RC scripts on target volume because otherwise NVRAM doesn't seem to work After the install, copy config.plist contents of "Other" content of "patched" to your new clover install. 2.2 Edit ACPI for slumber Choose one option, not both. The hot-patch is experimental, but for the moment it is stable. 2.2.1 Edit DSDT No more need for manual DSDT patching. If you still do it, you might run into unstable sleep. SSDT hot-patching + sane clover.config edits are enough This is necessary only once on initial install and every time, you edit or upgrade the BIOS. The DSDT.aml attached to this post might work for your system or give you a file to compare to. Don't expect it to work for you, though. EDIT: Since moving from F2 BIOS to F12 I did not repatch and sleep is still somewhat reliable. But to be 100% sure, you can still follow these steps. I won't go into the details of DSDT extraction and patching. There are better guides (the linked guide is a rip-off of rehabman's guide from a different forum). Please follow such a guide to extract your ACPI data. Locate and disassemble the DSDT with the newest iasl binary you can put your hands on, then open it with MacIASL in its newest version you can find (Hint: Here is a good source) You can check if the version is new enough if MacIASL doesn't throw error upon compiling a freshly extracted DSDT.aml or DSDT.dst Add rehabmans repo (as per linked guide) and apply the following patches: Rename _DSM to _XDSM Fix _WAK Arg0 v2 USB3 _PRW 0x6D Skylake (instant wake) Find the CNVW device and remove the _PWR function there. Compile the DSDT and place it in "patched". 2.2.2 Use SSDT hot-patching Instead of having to re-extract and re-patch the DSDT on every BIOS change or update, Hardware change one can also use ACPI hot-patching. It's a combination of config.plist patches and an SSDT, which is hot-patched into the ACPI (if I understand the process correctly) You need to add this SSDT-GPRW.aml to your Clover folder in the designated position at Clover/ACPI/patched You need to add this patch to your config.plist. It goes into the DSDT patch section Note: This works for me, but the patch removes the _PRW method from all devices in the DSDT. This could have side-effects. So far, I have seen none. At the moment I'm also not applying any other patch, compared with the additional edits I made to the DSDT method before. 2.3 Install kexts to system As mentioned in the install section, it's better to follow rehabman's instruction and install USBinjectAll.kext to /L/E: sudo cp -R Release/USBInjectAll.kext /Library/Extensions sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / 2.4 Enable onboard Audio - Install AppleALC kext Make sure your EFI partition is mounted and that you have a vanilla AppleHDA kext available. See below for a guide how to get a vanilla AppleHDA if needed Note: Our Audio codec is ALC887 and it's running with layout ID 1. Download the newest AppleALC kext from here and install it together with lilu.kext from here into your usual /clover/kexts/others location. Done. No scripts or config.plist patches necessary. Add layout ID 1 to config.plist, if it's not there yet: <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>ResetHDA</key> <true/> </dict> If you previously installed any audio patches, please follow this guide to "vanilla-ize" your install. 2.5 Optional steps for Graphics If you have a dGPU, now it's the time to install its drivers and adjust the config.plist for it. The detaisl are specific to your GPU and thus of scope of this guide. Yet, my supplied config.plist is ready to be used with Nvidia Pascal cards and using the Nvidia web driver. Whatevergreen.kext helps with Intel iGPU and NVIDIA dGPU fixes. At the moment I'm also testing out a special bootflag: 'shikigva=12' to enable faster rendering in Final Cut Pro X. Without whatevergreen.kext and a shikigva bootflag, rendering in final cut seem very slow. 2.5.1 Framebuffers If you're facing problems with output from your internal GPU, you can try the framebuffer patches listed by @BackwardMac: 2.6 Install a proper keyboard layout You might not be using a fancy Apple branded keyboard. If you use a PC keyboard, you might be annoyed by the differing layout and usage of keys. As a German, you might find yourself quitting applications, since alt gr + Q won't add an @, but quit your current application. To fix this, you can simply install a different keyboard layout. Copy it to /Library/Keyboard Layouts/ and chose the layout in System Preferences, Keyboard in the section "Other". Deleting the previously selecting layout makes sure that only this one is used. Nice little trick. A keyboard layout for German keyboards is attached and works wonders 3. Updating Updating inside 10.3.x/ 10.4.x point updates doesn't require much attention: Download the update from the AppStore as any Mac would do Allow the system to reboot Before booting MacOS with Clover, make sure to disable extra drivers for dGPUs which require non-native support. If using an Nvidia dGPU: Remove "nvda_drv=1" from your boot arguments and disable Nvidia injection If using a non natively supported AMD card, do the same for AMD (I'm not using AMD, thus I cannot be specific) Boot into the newly created Install MacOS partition Repeat this process until the Install partition is gone Boot MacOS again, still following 3., and potentially install updated drivers Your Audio might require re-patching 4. ToDo Move away from static DSDT patching to SSDT hotpatching --> requires my work Native NVRAM --> requires developer work Audio without AppleHDA patching --> requires developer work 5. Thanks to @MaLd0nfor helping finding the right way with the DSDT @RehabMan, for being a legend and helping me out patching @toleda, for audio patches for the 300 series /u/corpnewt, for his superb vanilla guide @wmchris for his super XPS 9550 guide and introducing me to hot-patching @Panzerschiffe for his addition to this guide all the developers of clover and it's awesomeness SSDT-UIAC.aml win-germany.keylayout
  2. Hello there, I've successfully installed Yosemite on my PC and everything is working fine except the system is very laggy (almost unusable) My specs are: CPU: Intel Core2Duo E7500 2.93GHZ GPU: AMD 5570 1GB Ram: 4GB M.B: Gigabyte G41-MT-S2P What could possibly be causing the problem? Or is my system just not strong enough? Should I try El Capitan or would it naturally require more power than Yosemite?
  3. Successfully installed iATKOS L2 OS X Lion 10.7.2 on my computer. So far, it has been working fine. When I open Apple menu > About This Mac > Additional Info, my computer appears as Mac Pro. Yes, there's nothing wrong with it. But I would like to see iMac instead of Mac Pro, as my computer is an all-in-one machine. As of what I know, I am supposed to edit SMBIOS plist to do that. Is it correct? If so, what iMac model is appropriate to my machine? Or should I just leave it as-is(Mac Pro)? Here are the full specs: Processor: Intel P6200 @ 2.13GHz Chipset: Intel HM57 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics (Arrandale) Sound: Realtek HD Audio (ALC272) LAN: Realtek RTL8168/8111 WLAN: Atheros AR9285

  5. Hello everybody, good night. Currently I use a desktop computer (literally desktop format, not is tower, the monitor is above), that don't have space for a standard VGA. Someone know some VGA that fits in this desktop? Everything works perfectly, except the integrated video graphics in CPU. My desktop: Dell Optiplex 790 DT (size: 14,17 x 4,02 x 16,14): Inside view: Thanks a lot! Sincerely, Luan Eduardo.
  6. Hi all, its been a long time since i post here. I have caugth interested on linux, this time Arch linux and at this point I have no more hackintosh in my machine. So for the pure Arch install, you can use evolution linux, it carry a simple installation to Arch linux, It is a rolling release, Arch linux, in general, it is just one time install and it will update upon demand of your, no newer version. I have cinnamon desktop, and sddm as log in manager, i have yaourt installed and tkpacman for package manager, mate screensaver. So if anyone like to try it, welcome to it. Edit: i use gufw for firewall, ans run as root in terminal:" systemctl enable ufw" to enable and start on startup. Networkmanager to manage network.
  7. So I've used Nawcom's ModCD with a retail .dmg of snow leopard and regardless of what I do, I seem to run into the same issue. I get this message: "Bacxktrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack) 0x437f0718 : 0x21b3a4 (0x58c612 0x2 0x347f13e8 0x223a12) warning: invalid kernel ip, won't attempt to trap Debugger called: <double panic>" This is what I got under the hood: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 (Two of em) 16 GB DDR3 AMD Phenom II X 4 965 BE
  8. Ciao a tutti, innanzi tutto ho un pc così composto: scheda madre asus strike 2 formula, due schede video gtx 460 1024 in Sli. Al primo avvio di hazard 10.6.6 non mi vengono riconosciute le schede video, installo [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 3.6, attivo NVenabler e PCIRoot 1, così facendo ho in com.apple.boot.plist: GraphicsEnabler = Sì PciRoot = 1. Al riavvio ho le due schede riconosciute dal sistema ma purtroppo Qe/Ci sono disabilitati.Ho provato ad installare i drivers tonymacx86 ma la macchina si riavvia, riparte bene solo se cancello nvdagf100hal.kext. Ho visto in rete che si può editare il DSDT per fare riconoscere la parte grafica al sistema ma compilando mi da un errore, così ho lascito perdere. Come posso fare per risolvere? Grazie anticipatamente.
  9. Ciao a tutti! Ho intenzione di acquistare i componenti necessari per assemblare un hackintosh. Chiedo il vostro aiuto, perchè è la prima volta che assemblo una macchina del genere e quindi è per me un campo poco conosciuto. Il computer mi serve esclusivamente per fare musica; userò software tipo Logic a Mainstage interfacciato con una scheda audio Motu o simile. Quindi la macchina deve essere molto silenziosa, con CPU veloce e molta RAM. La scheda video non è importante, ma deve essere in grado di pilotare un monitor Dell da 27" 2560x1440. Ho seguito alcune indicazioni reperite in rete e mi sono consultato con qualche altra persona che ne sa più di me e alla fine è venuta fuori una configurazione del genere: Case Cooler master Silencio 550 Alimentatore Be Quiet! 500W System Power 7 80+ Silver MB Gigabyte H97-D3H CPU Intel Xeon E3-1231v3 (oppure MB GA-Z97X-UD5H e CPU Intel Core i7-4790) Dissipatore CPU Cooler master RR-T4-18PK-R1 RAM 16 GB Kingston HX316C10FBK2/16 DDR3 1600 (oppure 32 GB) Scheda video 1 GB EVGA GT740 1GB 01G-P4-3742-KR (oppure 4 GB) SSD Samsung EVO 250GB HD Western Digital WD30PURX 5400rpm 64MB Purple (oppure Seagate 3TB ST3000DM001) S. wireless TP-Link TL-WDN4800 Blue-ray LG BH16NS40 bulk Mouse Apple Magic Mouse wireless Tastiera Apple MB110 cord o Logitech K750 wireless Per essere più sicuro, farei assemblare il computer dal sito dove compro i componenti e poi sarà compito mio installare il S.O., driver, etc. Sono ben accetti tutti i consigli che vorrete darmi; l'importante è che i componenti siano compatibili al 100% con il sistema operativo. Grazie fin d'ora per l'aiuto Francesco
  10. Hi guys., As the title says,I have been able to install dp2 on a usb hd and am able to boot into it by clover legacy mode,but can't reach the desktop as I can't enter the user name and pass word as my touchpad and key board are not working. I am able to boot the install only if I attach a usb mouse.But that can't enter the username/password etc and I am stuck at that step. If I do not attach the usb mouse the boot stops with the following screen as shown by another poster:. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298750-chameleon-r2377-os-x-yosemite/page-5#entry2030272 I have a working 10.9.3 on the same machine and touchpad/keyboard work well by the vodoops2controller.kext. But my dp2 install is not loading this.I have tried putting this in both the clover/efi /kext folder only and also in that plus s/le together but still no go. I used BOOT USB OS X YOSEMITE V1(Clover/Chameleon to make the install usb. and am using the latest fakesmc.kext and vodoops2controller.kex tby rehabman. So what do I do? Is this a kernel cache issue as to why the ps2 kext is not loading. My specs are in the signature. Please advise Thanks
  11. Since I updated to Mountain Lion I've been noticing quite a few issues with my GTS 450 graphics card. The computer doesn't sleep, but after waking from display sleep, I either have bizarre tearing issues or a blank grey screen with a mouse pointer and nothing else (in which case I have to reset the computer). The tearing seems to be more common; it primarily seems to affect Safari or the desktop picture. Restarting Safari or logging out fixes it. The old random freeze bug also seems to be back, and I'm experiencing the blue screen on resolution switch that some other people have mentioned. I switched to the DP3 rollback graphics kexts, but that doesn't seem to have changed anything (although everything seems generally faster with them; faster than Lion, definitely). I'm using Chameleon's Graphics Enabler.
  12. hello member in forum insanelymac you know there are 2 ways to fix intel hd 4400 in yosemite 10.10.2 Method 1 : Thanks Mirone ( apply Clover and chameleon not test ) link : Forum : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/304267-intel-hd4400-full-qeci-in-yosemite-10102/ Youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD6oiG0aVtM&list=UUnKlFcsK8YUJmGOoReoyZHw Method 2 : Thank the-darkvoid and RehabMan ( apply Chameleon and clover ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxIHW9oBDdM&feature=youtu.be
  13. Hi all, I have a Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop that I turned into a Hackintosh. Everything is okay so far, other then a few things; I cannot buy a Wifi adapter at this point in time because my router is far away from my Hackintosh and long range adapters are very expensive, far more then I want to spend. I have a MGM Electronics WiFi USB (Part number 831-3397) laying around, is it compatible with macOS Sierra? It worked on Windows 7 when it was installed. I also created my installer with a universal beast that is titled 7.0.1, and the Clover version is 3766. I have a bunch of kexts and configs that do not work well with the latest version on Clover, and when booting, sends me into a kernel panic. Is there anyway I can install 3766 to my HDD, or do I have to use a new set of configs? I used this setup: CLOVER.zip Can someone help me install Clover to my hard drive and have these files work for it? Thank you all so much in advance

    Change desktop size

    I just installed iAtkos L2 on a Zotac 9400M ITX motherboard, and it went very good. Now the problem is the screen, a DVB TV connected by HDMI. OS X detects correctly the resolution (1080i), but the desktop is bigger than the screen, I mean, I loose like 50px on each side of the screen. The NVIDIA NVEnabler.kext is working (I've QE/CI). This is a problem that has been rounded me since I installed Win & Linux but, on both systems, NVidia provided some software tools to resize the desktop to a desired size. Is there any option to resize the desktop (EFI string, external app, boot.plist option...)? Is very annoying, because I can't see the top menu bar and like 1/4 of the dock is hidden too (see attachment). Thanks in advance
  15. Hi community ! Is anybody successful with 10.13.x and multiple GPUs on a desktop hack ? My main rig (see in signature) HD4600 + GTX550Ti + GTX560 is working perfectly under 10.11.6 and 10.12.6. Very simple to install, Intel IGPU set to active and primary in bios, inject intel and igplatformid in bootloader (enoch or clover), no nividia injection, since Fermi GPUs are natively supported. Smbios set to iMac14.2 for my Haswell CPU, and to avoid AppleGraphicsDeviceControl devices unloading. But from 10.13.0 to 10.13.3, system boots fine until login screen where WindowServer crashes with a "no MTLDevice" error (MeTaL device I guess). I could workaround that error by unloading nvidia devices in AppleGraphicsDeviceControl, but that kind of defeats the purpose, since only the IntelHD4600 can then be used. 10.13.4 brings a little improvement, desktop can be reached, all 3 gpus active (AppleDisplay instances appear in IORegistryExplorer for Intel and Nvidias) but only Intel HDMI output shows desktop correctly, both nvidias (HDMI or DVI output) only show a black desktop where the mouse pointer can be moved normally. Displays can be arranged, orientation and resolution can be changed, as if everything was fine, but it is not. Console shows the following repeated messages : WindowServer (Skylight) : Unable to composite display surface due to null compositor. WindowServer (CoreDisplay) : [ERROR] - Attempting to get capabilities from capabilities with no devices Does anybody have an idea on how to avoid or workaround these errors ? Thanks ! O. Things I've tried: Bios Graphic Devices order changes (breaks everything unless IGPU is primary) nvidia injection in bootloader (fails in enoch, disables secondary nvidia GPU outputs in clover) Smbios changes and/or AppleDeviceControlPolicy plist edits (simply enables or disables nvidia outputs) nvidia official or web drivers (no changes at all, even though webdrivers are properly loaded ; requires nvram emulation with enoch) enoch or clover (no difference except clover boots a bit faster - than enoch with nvram - thanks to proper UEFI boot I guess) lilu intel and/or nvidia and/or coredisplay graphicsfixups (no visible changes but graphics devices names, and thus enables or disables AGPM) use binaries from Sierra 10.12.6 for CoreDisplay and/or Skylight frameworks (never reached desktop) NVIDIAeGPUSupport (no changes)

    Dual graphics on Desktop

    Hello there, I don't know if this is the right place for asking this, but I have a question. I noticed that in my build I can run IGPU an PEG at the same time, but my HD 530 refuses to work, only my Nvidia GT710 works. The question is, there are advantages of running dual graphics on desktop other than having more monitors? I ask this because I could try to activate my IGPU if i would have more performance... Thanks in advance.

    My first hackintosh!

    Hi everyone! Im building my own desktop and i would like to first have some feedback on the hardware and later some good help with the whole OS X instalation thing... This is my configuration: GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3P REV. B3 CPU INTEL 1155 I5 2500K 3.30GHZ 6MB BOX CORSAIR TX-650W V2 (Can i use the XFX PRO 550W CORE instead?) CORSAIR PC3-12800 1600MHZ 4GB VENGEANCE CL9 (2X2GB) DDR3 (later i will add a new 4GB pair to make a total 8GB) BITFENIX SURVIVOR (its just the case, so it doesnt really matter here...) CORSAIR SSD 120GB FORCE SERIES 3 SATA III SONY OPTIARC AD-7280S BLACK BULK (How about the Pioneer drives, do they work okay? I would prefer to have a Pioneer...) XFX RADEON HD6870 XXX EDITION 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E WIFI CARD (???) As for the peripherals, i am thinking of an AOC LED E2343F2 HDMI and the Microsoft (lol) Arc keyboard. Im guessing this keyboard will have some trouble workin on OS X, no? The mouse will be USB (Steelseries Kinzu Optical) so i believe theres no trouble there. Please help me on this one, i need to buy all this before new year. (prices are going higher next year...)
