  1. This is all I needed to build a fully working hackintosh in a REALLY vanilla way, no weird coding, almost everything worked out of the box immediately: Hardware: USB thumb drive (at least 8Gb) Motherboard Intel dh55tc CPU i7 860 RAM 12 GB Patriot (2x4, 2x2) GPU XFX ATI5870 SSD Kingston HyperX 120Gb HDD 2TB Seagate Barracuda Screens: 40" Sony 1080p TV, 24" 1080p BENQ LCD Optional WiFi TpLink TL-WN881ND PCI card (worked oob) The Pluggable USB-BT4LE Bluetooth worked oob on El Capitan and Sierra as well External USB 2.2 Sabrent sound device. Voodoo sound sucks and I just couldn't get the Realtek ALC888S to work. Volume control works flawlessly Optional Microsoft Web USB HD Camera (works with Skype and FaceTime) Optional Wacom Pen Tablet (installed and works perfectly) Software: OS X Olarila Yosemite <-- Look for it in your fav torrents site OS X El Capitan (same as above) OS X Sierra (same as above) Install the AppleIntelE1000 v.3.3.3 for Intel 82578DC ethernet and Voodoo sound (Use kextutility to install network kext) in case of trouble see below Clover Clover configurator Use Transmac from Windows (free trial) to write the Olarila image onto the USB drive (bigger than 8 GB) or in your Mac do sudo dd if=[drag and drop the raw file in terminal] of=/dev/rdisk2 bs=1m Change BIOS settings to enable UEFI boot, enable AHCI Select boot from USB Go to BIOS settings in Clover booting menu and check USB ownership option Go back to main menu and boot from Yosemite USB installation Select language installation Go to Disktools and format your destination drive with the GUID partition option Exit Disktools, go to Olarila Clover install menu and select your new partition to install After about 12 minutes (on an SSD) your system should reboot without problems Boot again from your USB, check the USB ownership option again and boot now from your new Yosemite installation Install the kexts for the intel 1000Mb network card and Voodoo for your onboard sound card Install Clover on your Yosemite drive EFI partition and select only Bootloader - Install boot0st in MBR and CloverEFI 64 bits SATA Reboot (again using your Olarila USB) Launch terminal List your partitions, at this point the Olarila USB drive might be sitting on Disk0s1 (diskutil list) Clone your Olarila EFI partition into your current drive EFI partition, make sure you listed your partitions (sudo dd if=/dev/disk0s1 of=/dev/disk1s1) Remove the Olarila USB drive, your cloned EFI partition should now be ready to boot from Reboot again to verify that you successfully cloned the Olarila EFI partition into your drive EFI partition (again take USB ownership) Launch Clover configurator to mount your cloned EFI partition (mine now was Disk0s1) Edit your config.plist files in your SSD EFI partition to automatically add USB ownership and remove verbose (so your boot logo is an Apple instead of the verbose). Note. Use Clover configurator to obtain the XML lines required to add ownership, remove the verbose and assign a computed serial number, manufacture date (mid 2010) to your Hackintosh, make sure you add these new lines to all config.plist files inside your EFI partition (3 config.plist). Thats it, I ended up with a fully working hackintosh that successfully wakes up on sleep, boots without the USB, has fully accelerated video h.264 MKV and 3D (tested and played without any hiccup Tomb Raider, Metro 2033 and Bioshock Infinite from steam), about this Mac info says it is a mid 2010 i7 Mac, shows up on find my Iphone on iCloud. Update: Don't lock your Hackintosh from your find my iPhone app (except of course it got stolen), I did it and the unlock password never worked. Had to reinstall and retrieve valuable files from the locked older Yosemite installed SSD Update: I backed up with time machine my hackintosh and installed both the OS X Update Combined 10.10.2 and the Security Update 2015-002. It seems everything went just fine except for my WiFi that apparently needs a kext reinstall Aug/11/2016 Update. After over a year and a half of developing on Xcode with Yosemite, I needed to upgrade to El Capitan and everything went really smooth. Just backed up everything with TimeMachine, installed El Capitan on the former Yosemite partition, and all programs and configurations came back just fine. All I needed to do was update Clover on my EFI partition. The computer was already fast enough, but now it feels somewhat even faster. February 2017, installed Sierra, real pain in the butt because I tried a gaming upgrade with a Radeon AMD HD7970 just to find out that it won't come back from sleep, that an iGPU is required and enabled on the BIOS, which my processor doesn't support, so I had to put back the HD 5870. With the TL-WN881ND PCI card, I had to get the Kext, put it in the EFI partition on Clover Other Kexts directory, and use Kext Utility to build the cache, or else the WiFi stopped working after the second reboot. The 82578DC network stopped working on the third reboot, so I got the IntelMausiEthernet v 2.2.0 Kext and put it in the other Kexts directory in Clover from the EFI partition, ran the Kext Utility repair permissions, because all other Kext install methods failed, including Kext Utility and Kext Wizard Update: I downloaded Olarila High Sierra installation RAW file, put it in an USB drive and choose to install High Sierra over a Yosemite MacOS. On an almost identical rig (DH55TC AMD 5870) I had no problems doing just that with all versions from El Capital up to Sierra, but this time it was different The system booted up successfully but didn't recognize two internal HD drives, so I was worried there was something with the ExFAT or worse yet, the drives failed on me. On a closer look I noticed the drives worked just fine within Windows and couldn't get the drives to work on High Sierra with the ExFAT fix. I also noticed that the Sleep and Wake Up process fails, the computer fails to wake up. Also noticed a message during the boot verbose: DISK2 IO error. So after doing some research, it seems Apple like updated their AppleAHCIPort.kext extension (329) so to provide a hot swappable function but excluded Intel 5 Series Chipset compatibility for a newer energy saving function. Long story short, with the attached files, I managed to correctly install a fixed AppleAHCIPort.kext extension with a Kext Installer, but I still have issues getting the computer to wake up from the sleep state. I hope to fix this annoying restriction. High Sierra is the last MacOS supported by this rig due to the Metal compatibility requirement in Mojave. (Maybe upgrading my VC do the trick?) PD I am also attaching my config.plist with the configuration for automatic drive selection. AppleAHCIPort.kext.zip config.plist
  2. I am all tired and frustrated trying to install mountain lion 10.8.3 (mac app store app) on this build CPU - corei3 530 @2.99ghz MOBO-intel DH55TC GFX-Sapphire HD7770 ghz edition 8 GB ram @1333mhz 2.75tb HDD space spanning 4 hdds. Ive had no luck trying different build/install guides that i googled and also the tools available at "other" forums. The problem is that the installation just wont start..keeps still at "DSMOS has arrived" ive tried various boot flags on chameleon but to no avail. What the hell am i missing? HELP!! is a hackintosh at all possible with the above specs?? thanks is advance. P.S - I do have a working hackintosh laptop made out of a Dell Inspiron1525 thats running 10.6.8 pretty smoothly(used nozyczek's amazing guide) P.P.S - i am still a bit of an noob with all the dsdt's and kext stuff...!!
