  1. Hi, I recently got my Hackintosh setup with Sierra. The specs are: Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 Motherboard Intel Core i5 6500 8 GB DDR4 Memory Simple HDD boot EVGA GTX 960 (Problem) It boots fine, but until I install any driver, (I've tried loads of versions), it won't boot. It just boots to verbose and stops, or sometimes, the screen will go black and it will restart. So basically, Graphics drivers really stop me from booting. But I need them because the performance of the OS is pretty bad because of it. (Sort of) Can someone give me some guidance, or link me to an appropriate driver or something? Thanks, Daniel
  2. Have removed the kernel patch, and am trying clover. See this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/299786-advice-sought—black-screen-after-boot/#entry2044867 Now I KP at startup. "Unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI"" I haven’t installed anything yet; I’m just trying to boot into the USB installation drive. To get it to boot I had to change mach_kernel using this perl patch discussed here: If I set GraphicsEnabler=No (default), I simply get a black screen after I see it do its normal verbose boot (the screen goes black right after [iOBluetoothHCIController]. If I set GraphicsEnabler=Yes, then it simply hangs on the same [iOBluetoothHCIController]. Has anyone run into this problem? I'd really appreciate some sort of solution. If no one has a solution, then any possible ways I could troubleshoot this would also be appreciated. A concise summary below: Issue: Black screen after boot. I can see everything on the boot screen, but nothing after. Hardware: EVGA Classified Z97 2x EVGA reference 780Ti i7-4790K Things I have tried: GraphicsEnabler=No (black screen remains) GraphicsEnabler=Yes (Hangs on [iOBluetoothHCIController]) PCIRootUID=0,1 DSDT=no -f, -F, -x
  3. I wrote an email to EVGA for ask help on an old video card GTX 680, my card type is : 02G-P4-2684-KR. vBIOS only support legacy CSM boot mode. I got a update package, and update into my GTX 680 card, it works fine with both legacy and UEFI boot mode. if you guys need the same video card vBIOS as well, you can update it with in Windows system. Change the file name to zip, and unzip the package. Be noticed, run a command prompt as administrator, then start update.exe. enjoy! 2682.zi_
  4. Hi there, I'm selling a EVGA GTX 650 Ti SSC on eBay right now. You can certainly buy there or PM me here! If you PM me it's easier to negotiate price and shipping. Right now it's free USPS shipping in the US, but for other US carriers or international, you'll have to pay. It's in my rig now, but I've only had it a few weeks! I don't need all the power, so I'm looking to go down to a Radeon 7750. http://www.ebay.com/itm/111038951290?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 Thanks, Ian
  5. I have a glitch on the top and bottom of my screen when I'm booting up. It's between the apple logo and the login screen. It goes past pretty quickly and then turns into the common loading bar on the bottom of the screen problem, before everything works correctly at the user login screen. I've searched around some for a fix but couldn't find anything for this particular issue. I found some fixes for glitching on integrated graphics but nothing for a dedicated nvidia gpu with multiple monitors. I have monitors attached as DVI and HDMI. I'm on the latest web drivers but this has been an issue since upgrading ot el cap. It's a small issues, but any help, suggestions, or pointing me in the right direction would be very much appreciated. My specs are in my signature.
  6. Hi. First time builder/hackintosher here. Please be nice. This thread is a continuation of my other one: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/291208-haswell-success-ga-z87m-d3h-gtx-670/ where I successfully installed OS X 10.8.4 onto my machine. In this post I will discuss features that (don't) work. 1. Power management: I think so, as I can boot without patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext or NullCPUPowerManagement.kext. Does this screenshot of Activity Monitor clarify anything? http://i.imgur.com/GsTWhdX.png What does it mean? EDIT: Turns out that I'm lacking a whole load of processor states. It makes a huge jump from 800MHz to 3.17GHz. To be continued. 2. Audio: Working in 10.8.5 with patched AppleHDA as of https://github.com/toleda/audio_ALC892 https://github.com/toleda/audio_kext_enabler (also attached). 3. Graphics: QE/CI works out of the box with EVGA GeForce GTX 670. 4. Ethernet: Realtek's official driver for OS X Lion 10.7 works: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3 5. USB 3: Works (but I have only tested with USB 2 devices). AppleHDAEnabler1.zip PS2 Drivers.zip
  7. This is my installation guide for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. I will try to improve my guide all the time. If anyone has a suggestion, I will add it. Warning: I'm not responsible for any damage or problems to your system, lost of data and any other issues. Be sure to have a backup of important parts of your system! (BIOS-rom(s), drivers, files, etc.) I have tested most HW-parts on temperatures, (fault/warning) messages, etc. and believed this setup is safe to use. However their could be parts on your setup that don't work (properly) for you. Last Updated: 20/06/2013 My system specs: ASUS P8H67-M Pro (Rev 3.0/B3) motherboard (BIOS 3806) Intel i5-2400 @ 2.4Ghz (stock) Kingston DDR3-1333 RAM 8GB Samsung 830 SSD EVGA GeForce 450 GTS (1GB) 1TB HDD Samsung HD103SJ Working Status: OS X ML 10.8.4 UEFI-mode Audio: Working (AppleHDA) Ethernet: Working Speedstep: Working USB (2.0): Working EVGA GeForce 450 GTS: Working, using latest NV Drivers USB 3.0: Not working - There are solutions (see post below) available but yet tested myself. Sleep: Not working properly, Clover-bug(?) (P)ATA: Not used OS X Installation Steps Requirements - A running Macintosh/Hackintosh 10.6, 10.7 or 10.8 (VMware) Machine. - An OS X ML 10.8 Installation (App) from the Apple Store - An empty hard drive - An empty 7.5GB> USB-stick/drive (Installation Media) - An empty 256MB> USB-stick/drive (Clover) - A lot of patience - The following needed packages: Kernel & System Caches updater Realtek Driver HWSensors DSDT Editor Creating a bootable OS X Install Media First follow the steps in this (great) guide. Remember you will need to use the latest available OS X ML install media, otherwise you will not able to boot without using the safe mode (-x). Creating a bootable Clover (UEFI) USB-stick 1. Download the latest Clover zip 2. Open Disk Utility and plugin the USB-sick that you want to use for Clover. 3. Format the USB-stick as follow: 4. Exit Disk Utility 5. Unzip Clover_v*.zip and run the Clover_v*.pkg file 6. Choose Clover USB-stick as Installation Target and select the following Installation options: 7. Open the created Clover USB-stick 8. Delete the files BOOTIA32.efi & CLOVERIA32.efi inside the BOOT and CLOVER directories. 9. Replace config.plist with the following content (it will enable TRIM-support): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>prev-lang:kbd</key> <string>en:0</string> <key>LegacyBoot</key> <string>PBR</string> <key>boot-args</key> <string>-v -x npci=0x2000 slide=0 darkwake=0 WithKexts</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> </dict> <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> </dict> <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <array> <string>AsusAICPUPM</string> <true/> <string>AppleRTC</string> <true/> <string>KextsToPatch</string> <dict> <key>0</key> <dict> <key>Find</key> <data>QVBQTEUgU1NE</data> <key>Name</key> <string>IOAHCIBlockStorage</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>AAAAAAAAAAAA</data> </dict> </dict> </array> <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Theme</key> <string>metal</string> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>Enabled</key> <false/> </dict> </dict> <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>LogEveryBoot</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>PatchVBios</key> <true/> <key>GraphicsInjector</key> <true/> </dict> <key>PCI</key> <dict> <key>HDAInjection</key> <string>Detect</string> <key>USBInjection</key> <true/> <key>InjectClockID</key> <true/> <key>USBFixOwnership</key> <true/> <key>LpcTune</key> <true/> </dict> <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>ResetValue</key> <string>0x06</string> <key>EnableC4</key> <true/> <key>EnableC6</key> <true/> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <false/> <key>C3Latency</key> <string>0x3E7</string> <key>EnableISS</key> <true/> <key>DropDMAR</key> <true/> <key>DropBGRT</key> <true/> <key>EnableC2</key> <true/> <key>DsdtName</key> <string>DSDT.aml</string> <key>PluginType</key> <string>0</string> <key>ResetAddress</key> <string>0xCF9</string> <key>PLimitDict</key> <string>0</string> <key>UnderVoltStep</key> <string>0</string> <key>DoubleFirstState</key> <false/> <key>DropOemSSDT</key> <true/> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <false/> </dict> </dict> </plist> 10. Place the kext FakeSMC.kext (From HWSensors) and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext inside the Clover USB kexts/10.8 folder. You have now created a bootable Clover (UEFI) USB! OS X Installation BIOS Settings: - Disabled USB 3.0 Controller (also legacy-mode) - Disabled PATA/Serial/LPT-ports - Disabled EPU Power Saving - Enable (no auto!) all available CPU State Reporting (C1E, C3, C6, etc.) 1. Boot in the target system with both the OS X Installation Media and the Clover USB-stick plugged, hit F8-key for BIOS-Menu, choose UEFI: *Clover USB Drive Name* Select Mac OS X Base System (or whatever you could your OS X Installation medium) and hit Enter. Your system should be booted in a few minutes and show you the Installation Welcome screen. Select your language and open up Disk Utility. Select the target drive, click Partition-tab and select GPT-schema under Options. Make one or more partitions (what your desire) and click on Apply. Exit Disk Utility and follow the rest of the OS X Installation. After installation, try to boot the new created OS X-partition with the Clover-USB. If this all worked, congratulations! You just installed OS X! OS X Extra's DSDT It is recommended to create your own DSDT.aml file. There are two ways to get your DSDT: Inside OS X or with a Live (Ubuntu) Linux Installation USB-stick (recommended). See the following howto for Ubuntu (It's recommended to also boot the USB in UEFI-mode). When you have your DSDT.dsl file open it inside OS X with DSDT Editor. Apply Fix.txt (Menu > Patch > Open), choose IASL and click on Compile. To fix the following warnings: ResourceTag Larger than Field (Tag: 64 bits, Field 32 bits), change CreateDWordField to CreateQWordField in that line. Not all control paths return a value (_HID): Method (_HID, 0, NotSerialized) // _HID: Hardware ID { If (TCMF) {} Else { Return (0x0201D824) } } Return (Zero) // add this Compile again and save the generated DSDT-file as DSDT.aml on your desktop (IASL > Save AML As) Note: I added my latest patched DSDT.dsl that includes many other fixes like nVidia injection (No more GE=Yes), RTC fix, ALC892 (HDEF) edit, etc. Patch IntelCPUPM There are two ways to get AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement to work (needed for speedstep). One way is to patch it with this script or by patching your BIOS. Clover includes already a patch for AppleCPUPM, so if you are going to use Clover as your default bootloader this should not be needed anymore. I have patched my BIOS so I never have to worry about IntelCPUPM. Please keep in mind patching is risky, so please be warned! HWSensors (FakeSMC) Run HWSensors.pkg and install it on the OS X Installation drive. You can select all plugins btw. Realtek (Ethernet) See instructions here Clover Bootloader If everything is working, you can install Clover as your default bootloader. Just run the Clover setup again, select the OS X partition and the following Installation Options: - To install Clover as bootable-option (needed for ASUS-boards) format an USB-stick inside Windows with a FAT32-filesystem - Download this Shell.efi file and place it into the root of the USB-stick as Shellx64.efi - Reboot your system, and enter the BIOS-settings screen - Go to Advanced Settings > Exit > Launch EFI-shell from filesystem - The EFI-shell should now automatically load. - Run the following commands from the EFI-shell (# ... # are just comments): > map fs* #choose the correct disk where OS X is installed# > fs1: #for me it's fs1# > cd \EFI\CLOVER #change to the \EFI\CLOVER directory on the EFI-partition, if you can't cd, you have the wrong fs*:# > bcfg boot dump #list current boot-menu settings# > bcfg boot add 0 CLOVERX64.efi "OS X" #add Clover as a boot-option# > bcfg boot dump #list the changed made to the boot settings# > reset #restart system# That's it, you can now boot into Clover by selecting OS X in the BIOS-menu without the USB-stick. I recommend to change config.plist on the EFI-partition, these are my (working) settings: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>Debug</key> <false/> <key>KernelCpu</key> <false/> <key>AsusAICPUPM</key> <true/> <key>AppleRTC</key> <true/> <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data>RXh0ZXJuYWw=</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>SW50ZXJuYWw=</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleTyMCEDriver</string> <key>Comment</key> <string>AppleTyMCEDriver patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data>cgoATWFjUHJvNCwxAE1hY1BybzUsMQBY</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>cgoAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABY</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>IOAHCIBlockStorage</string> <key>Comment</key> <string>TRIM enable patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data>QVBQTEUgU1NE</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>AAAAAAAAAAAA</data> </dict> </array> </dict> <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DsdtName</key> <string>DSDT.aml</string> <key>DropOemSSDT</key> <true/> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <true/> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <true/> <key>DropAPIC</key> <false/> <key>DropMCFG</key> <true/> <key>DropHPET</key> <false/> <key>DropECDT</key> <false/> <key>DropDMAR</key> <true/> <key>DropBGRT</key> <true/> <key>ResetAddress</key> <string>0xCF9</string> <key>ResetValue</key> <string>0x06</string> </dict> <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacPro4,1</string> </dict> <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>MountEFI</key> <true/> <key>LogLineCount</key> <integer>3000</integer> <key>LogEveryBoot</key> <false/> </dict> <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Theme</key> <string>bluemac</string> <key>Timeout</key> <integer>2</integer> <key>DefaultBootVolume</key> <string>Macintosh HD</string> <key>DebugLog</key> <false/> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>Enabled</key> <false/> <key>Speed</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> <key>Volumes</key> <dict> <key>Legacy</key> <false/> </dict> <key>HideEntries</key> <dict> <key>OSXInstall</key> <false/> <key>Recovery</key> <false/> <key>Duplicate</key> <false/> <key>WindowsEFI</key> <false/> <key>Grub</key> <false/> <key>Gentoo</key> <false/> <key>Ubuntu</key> <false/> <key>OpticalUEFI</key> <false/> <key>InternalUEFI</key> <true/> <key>ExternalUEFI</key> <false/> </dict> </dict> <key>PCI</key> <dict> <key>LpcTune</key> <true/> <key>HDAInjection</key> <string>892</string> <key>USBInjection</key> <true/> <key>InjectClockID</key> <true/> <key>USBFixOwnership</key> <true/> </dict> <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>boot-args</key> <string>-v npci=0x2000 slide=0 nvda_drv=1 WithKexts</string> <key>prev-lang:kbd</key> <string>nl:0</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>LegacyBoot</key> <string>PBR</string> </dict> <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>GraphicsInjector</key> <false/> <key>PatchVBios</key> <true/> </dict> </dict> </plist> Fix_beta990.txt DSDT.dsl.zip config.plist.zip AppleHDA.kext.zip

  9. Hi all, I've got 10.6.8 running on my desktop, which has an EVGA X58 board with a Core i7 (specifically the EVGA 131-GT-E767-TR and the Intel Core i7-950. I used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to install, and I've got everything working so far, except for speedstep. The i7 makes my tiny apartment pretty hot running at 3 GHz nonstop. The computer will not boot unless NullCPUPowerManagement.kext is in /E/E. If I remove it, I get a kernel panic (error 13, general protection) from AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext as soon as darwin starts booting. This is what I have in /Extra to get a booting system: sh-3.2# ls -lh /Extra/Extensions total 0 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102B Jan 7 2011 ALC8xxHDA.kext drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102B May 14 2011 FakeSMC.kext drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102B Aug 29 2009 IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext sh-3.2# cat /Extra/smbios.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">'>http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>Mac Pro</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F42C88C8</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>G88451235J4</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>######.tonymacx86.com</string> </dict> </plist> sh-3.2# cat /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=x86_64 busratio=23 npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1200x32@60</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> In S/L/E I've added ALC892HDA.kext (to enable audio) PHXCD.kext (for USB 3.0) AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext (to /S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins) The rest I accomplished by patching my DSDT, as described here. However, I get the same kernel panic without NullCPUPowerManagement regardless of whether I use my DSDT or additional kexts. I also get the panic regardless of whether or not I use 32 or 64 bit or include or busratio=23 in my boot.plist. I've tried disabling unused controllers and ports in my BIOS. I've also set my speedstep options to "Enabled" and "C1E" in my BIOS, and set HPET to "Enabled" and "64 bit", as recommended in other posts I've read. My BIOS is currently updated to the latest version, and speedstepping works fine on this machine in Windows and Linux. I've also tried EvoSpeedStep.kext, but I get the same panic. This panic seems common with EVGA X58 boards, and there was some interesting discussion about the issue by d00d, banini_jeque, and others in these threads: Vanilla Speedstep on EVGA X58 SLI EVGA X58 Speedstep attempts with bios version >= 44 Evga X58 Native Powermanagement With Bios 44 And Newer Evga X58 Native Powermanagement With Bios 44 And Newer270-WS-W555 DSDT native power management modifications I tried everything mentioned in those threads, but nothing worked.No one ever seemed to come up with a solution. This thread at InfiniteMac seems to be the most comprehensive, but in OP, it states: Since all those threads are over a year old, I was wondering if anyone else had managed to get this working since then. Thanks guys!
  10. Hi everyone! I've searched everywhere on the internet but I wasn't able to find an answer anywhere... I'm going to buy a new display (samsung u28d590 4k), and obviously I can't take a decision about the new graphic card. My build is: Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H with Intel Core i5 3470, 8GB RAM, Samsung SSD 840 EVO and actually a GT610 (working OOB with Mountain Lion before and Mavericks now). I'd like to buy a graphic card that's able to drive 4k@60hz (possibly on Mavericks: I wouldn't like to upgrade yet because of some incompatibilities with softwares I use). These are the cards I'm oriented to: -Evga GTX760 (SC, FTW, and so on): does it reach 4k@60hz on Mavericks (and will it work on Yosemite too)? -Evga GTX750Ti: I've read it runs only on Yosemite (correct me if I'm wrong)...but does it reach 4k@60hz? If you have any other compatible graphic cards to suggest (4k@60hz, possibly working OOB), especially if they're cheap as the 750 (I've seen that 760 costs way more than 750), feel absolutely free to flood this thread with their models names! Thanks in advance!!
  11. So I installed Mountain Lion using iatkos ml2 and a few of the options in there, by the way just so everyone knows I am good at IT I'm just a noob when it comes to stuff like this... But I have to boot with "Graphics enabler=no" and I have to physically remove my graphics card which is not ideal "EVGA GTX 660 2GB SC" if i don't remove it I simply get this error (NVENABLER: PROBE:ROM SHADOW ENABLE Sometimes I get to this line "sound assertion in iohdacodecdevice at line 161" and then it boots other time it hangs almost randomly and I have to reboot Also I used to get this error alot "iobluetooth start completed" The motherboard I'm using is also presenting issues (MSI H87-G43) Whilst integrated graphics work using the graphicsenabler=no command and using a little [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] setting I can get it to run in 1920x1080x32 resolution this is post installation of course but I can't get the onboard sound to work which I believe is realtek (when no headphones are plugged in my computer seems to think there is no sound card installed (in windows 7/8) also can anyone help me as to why my USB wireless adapter isn't working... http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/315109356/802_11n_EDUP_150Mbps_1T1R_USB.html Either way once installed the only thing I have working is integrated graphics running at 1080x768 which is really grainy in places which is to be expected but my 8gb ram is detected. In short: Can anyone help me fix the onboard sound for my H87-G43 MSI motherboard? How can I get my EVGA GTX 660 2GB SC to work with Hackintosh Why isn't my USB WIFI Adaptor not working as in not being detected at all (Wi-Fi greyed out even after unplugging and replugging) What do the errors that I used to get and still do mean?
