  2. Run macOS Sierra on a Dell Latitude E6320 NO ONE IN THIS FORUM (INCLUDING ME) IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS (DATA, MATERIAL, EQUIPMENT…) OCCURRED TO YOU, YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE RESPONSIBLE, AND BY FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS YOU AGREE TO TAKE ALL THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. THIS INSTALLATION ISN'T WITHOUT RISKS SO TAKE ALL THE PRECAUTIONS BEFORE DOING ANY FOOLISH ACTION, BACKUP YOUR DATA! This tutorial will describe the steps to install macOS Sierra on a Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: OSX Latitude.com Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac Forum member Jake Lo from OSXLatitude.com for helping me out with installing. Morpheousman and Polyzargon from InsanelyMac who helping me with my other topics. (Dell 780) MacPeet, Chris1111 and all other forum members who helping out the community. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial. And Hervé from insanelymac for using is modified DSDT.aml for E6320 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Latitude E6320 – This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor. E6320_V2.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5-2520M laptop computer with the following specs. Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM Western Digital 250GB HDD INTEL HD3000 Video Intel 825xx onboard network Dell wireless 375 Bluetooth 3.0 onboard (works OOB) IDT 92HDxxx HD audio onboard TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home) Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home) Apple Magic Mouse 4. Download OS X Sierra Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. Once macOS Sierra is downloaded, close the install pop-up that appears using Command (⌘)+Q. The application INSTALL macOS Sierra will appear in /Applications Done! 5. Prepare bootable USB Installer Note on flash drives: You will need a USB flash drive to make this work. Your USB should be at least 8GB and a USB 3.0 drive is preferred. Kingston sells an 8GB USB 3.0 drive for less than 10 euro. Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will purge everything on the drive. Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents. Open Contents - Resources. Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal. In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space. Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window. Type --volume followed by a space. Connect your USB drive and drag the USB drive into the Terminal Window. Type --applicationpath in the Terminal followed by a space. Open Finder - Applications and drag the Install macOS Sierra into the Terminal Window. Press Return on the keyboard to submit the full command. Type a 'Y' to continue when prompted to do so, and press Return on your keyboard The install process will begin by erasing the contents of your USB disk and copying the installer files to the USB disk. The entire process is quite lengthy; it can takes around 15-30 minutes, so you will need to show some patience 6. Installing Clover to the USB Disk Unpack the E6320.zip to your desktop or specified map you preferred. Open the map E6320 - Clover_v2.3k_r3726. DubbleClick on the Clover_v2.3k_r3726.pkg package file. Clover installation screen will be prompt. Click on Continue - Continue. Click on Change Install Location on the right bottom. Choose your USB Stick named Install macOS Sierra Public Beta click on Continue. Click on Customize on the left bottom. Choose Install Clover in the ESP Choose Bootloader : Install boot0af in MBR Choose in Clover EFI for CloverEFI 64- Bits SATA At last choose Install RC Scripts on target volume Click after that on Install. Clover will installed on the EFI Partition on the USB after install you can see the EFI partition in Finder. 7. Prepare USB stick for the Dell E6320 Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your Laptop. Go to map where you have unpacked the E6320 zip file there you will find a map called EFI. Copy the map EFI and go to your EFI partition thru Finder. Paste the EFI folder in the EFI partition and replace everything. Done your USB Stick is ready to boot macOS Sierra installer. 8. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320 Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OSX Sierra Start your Dell Latitude and press F2 to get into the Bios. In the main screen click on "Load Defaults", the bios will be reset to default settings. Go to General - Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting. Go then to System Configuration - SATA Operation and choose on the right for AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OSX Sierra. 9. Installing OSX Sierra from your USB drive Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install macOS Sierra onto the Hard Drive. Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Power on unit while tapping F12 Key to choose boot device, select USB device. When Clover boot screen is visible, choose boot "Install macOS from Sierra USB Installer". Choose you desired language and click on the arrow, the macOS Utilities screen will appear. For a new installation of macOS, you must erase and format the destination drive according to the following steps before continuing. If you are upgrading from Mavericks , Yosemite or El Capitan and you want to keep your files and apps, skip steps 1-9. (NOT TESTED IN SIERRA) Choose in the macOS utilities for Disk Utility and click Continue. Disk Utility will be opened, highlight your target drive for macOS Sierra installation in the left column. Click ERASE button on top. Under Name: Type Sierra or any other name. Under Format: Choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Under Scheme: Choose GUID Partition Map. Click Erase. Click on Done. Close Disk Utility you will be prompted to the macOS Utilities screen. In the macOS Utilities screen choose Install macOS and click 2x on Continue. Agree the license agreement and click again on Agree When the installer asks you where to install macOS, choose your Sierra HDD click on Install. Sierra will be installed on the HDD, this will take about 6 - 15 minutes depending of your HDD. Upon completion, system will restart a 1st time. Press F12 key to choose the boot device. When the Clover Boot screen is visible, Choose "Boot macOS Install from Sierra". macOS will continue to Install the OS on your HDD this will take about 10 -25 minutes after that the installation will be finished and your laptop will reboot. 10. Booting for the first time macOS Sierra When the Clover Boot screen is visible, Choose "Boot MAC OS X from Sierra" You will eventually get to the setup screens for macOS Sierra. Go through the setup process to setup macOS Sierra. At the country selection choose your country and press continue. Select Your Keyboard choose ABC and press Continue. Choose at "How do i connect to the internet " ..."My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet", we will fix this later, go further with the setup process and press continue.

Paste the EFI folder in the EFI partition and replace everything. Done your E6320 is ready to boot macOS Sierra. 17. Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK. The software is straight forward and installs without problems. Go to your E6320 folder which you have extracted to your HDD of your macOS Sierra. Open the map "beta driver for mac os X 10.11" . Run Installer_RTL.pkg Click Continue - Continue - Continue - Agree - Install Enter your Password and click Install Software - Continue Installation Click Restart to Reboot your Laptop. The first time you will get a kernel panic don't worry reboot again and the laptop will start macOS Sierra. Done! 18. What's working? Just about everything. 19. Finished! You’ve successfully installed macOS Sierra onto your Dell Latitude E6320. TROUBLESHOOTING 20. iMessage & FaceTime Fix You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is on the mac server. Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc and make a copy and paste of the Terminal output. Open Clover Configurator. Mount EFI Partition. Import config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover (File , import configuration, browse to config.plist and select). In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB Values from iMessage output from valid iMac device. Save changes to config.plist. Reboot, Sign into iMessage. iMessage and FaceTime should now both be working. 21. BOOT 0 Error If you are using a 4k HDD you can get boot:0 error, to solve this issue do the following. Reboot system back into Sierra installer (USB)FLASH DRIVE). Run Disk Utility find the Disk Identifier (eg. disk0s2). Unmount the drive you installed Sierra on. Launch Terminal and execute the following command: dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2. Exit Terminal. Boot Normally. Run macOS Sierra 10.12 E6320.pdf
  3. Hey everyone, after years I come back to Hackintosh. In the early days I played with ozmosis and my good old 4700k. Now I'm back and worked around a 100% working setup with enough power to get me through all my tasks like audio, video cut etc. In this short tutorial I will guide you through BIOS Settings and give you access to my EFI Folder. This I do because I haven't found anything on the web for my setup. Maybe it will help some of you. When you follow the steps you will have a perfect running Hackintosh like I do have now I've chosen the iMac 18,3 because of the easy integration of both Graphic Units and the support of HEVC. Specs: CPU: Intel i7 9700k (Overclocked in Bios to 4,7 GHz) SMBIOS: iMac18,3 (Because of Dedicated Graphics and HEVC Intel Support) RAM: 32GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3200 DIMM CL16 (XMP Profile to 3200MHz) Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON (MS-7b17) <- It's the model without WLAN/Bluetooth Graphic Card: Sapphire RX580 Nitro+ Bluetooth & WLAN: Broadcom Card in PCI Adapter What is working: Almost everything! All USB Ports, Intel Power Management, Bluetooth, WLAN, LAN, Intel Graphics HEVC, Boot/Reboot, Sleep What is not working: Facetime & iMessage (Don't need it but I will come back to this) Steps: 1. Create Mojave 10.14.5 USB Drive | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CZDXxKfodE&amp;t=95s | Us this tutorial or search the forum 2. Load my EFI Folder: https://workupload.com/file/zkJ4zdQk 3. Go into your bios and use my settings in the Screenshot I attached 4. Boot from USB Stick | Install Mojave | Boot into Mojave (Check other Tutorials if you don't know how) 5.

  5. EDIT: MacOS Mojave 10.14 ONLY I didn’t test 10.14.1! The EFI folder is compatible with High Sierra. Guide to installing 10.14 Mojave on a ASUS X555L What Works: -WiFi -Sound -Graphics (Intel) What doesn't Work: -Bluetooth -NVidia Web Drivers -Battery Indicator Used Kexts: Picture Clover setup: Clover plist is downloadable in this topic. Let's start Step one: First get a USB with 8+ GB of storage and a MacOS Mojave 10.14 installer from the AppStore. Partition the USB in a GUID style and 2 partitions, one partition HFS+ and one partition FAT32. In the FAT32 partition put the EFI Folder there. On the HFS+ partition get the MacOS Mojave .app using this command: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USBNAME --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction Lets install! Put the USB in a 3.0 port on the LEFT side of the Notebook. In the BIOS follow the default Hackintosh settings, do NOT forget to put Memory allocation to 64MB (Otherwise you won't boot) Boot into the Installer and install MacOS Mojave. Boot into MacOS. Now your Graphics are working but your WiFi and Sound are not! for the WiFi follow this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxFsjhc-AuM Once rebooted WiFi is working! For sound get the VooDooHDA.kext and place it into /Library/Extensions Reboot once again and your sound is now working flawlessly! My EFI Folder is downloadable config.plist EFI.zip
  6. 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

  12. Hello, I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system. For installation I used this Thread. I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore. Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080. My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB) Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version? Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ? About some hints where to start I would be thankful. regards JackBauer24 Z170DeluxeFiles.zip
  13. This is simple guide how to change/alias location of home folders. Many of hackintosh users use SSD drives for system and apps and would prefer not to crowd them with extensive amounts of data. This guide, courtesy of Davemreed from MacRumors.com explains in most simple way how to link default home folders to any secondary internal or external hard drive. Thanks to this solution you can store downloads, pictures, music, FCP libraries etc not on your system drive. This example refers to 'Downloads' folder, but can be applied to any home folders respectively. Warning!!! - this procedure deletes home folder with whole its content, so please be careful. First copy your Download folder to target location, otherwise you lose it. Launch Terminal Type: sudo rm -rf ~/Downloads/ You will prompted by a password, preceded by a warning about being careful. Now your Downloads folder is deleted from your home location. Next, in the Terminal window, type: ln -s (with a space following the 's'). Now, open a Finder window and go to the target location of your Downloads. Drag the new Downloads folder into the Terminal window. The path to the new destination will auto fill. Hit the return key to issue the command. The new Downloads default folder has now been successfully changed. Enjoy!
  14. Hey there I searching a guide for inatall snow leopard in my dell latitude d620. I looked a guide but need the retail dvd,and i dont have one. I can inatall without the retail dvd? Please help me.
  15. Installing Mountain Lion on this motherboard is a piece of cake. With this tutorial you will got a DSDT-FREE installation, with everything working. Requirements: -My package and modded bios: here -MyHack Start: First we need to flash the bios , for native speedstep. Prepare usb key with myhack and the guide present on the website. Start the hackintosh. Start and install my package. Reboot and everything should working. (If you are using a particular videocard , is up to you now to make it working) Tested on Mountain Lion 10.8 with cpu ivy bridge.
  16. I have just successfully set up Mountain Lion DP4 on my Asus P8P67-m Pro and decided to share what I found with the community. I used a patched version of the latest BIOS (3602) along with the DSDT and SSDT for that version. A modified BIOS is not necessary but should help with speedstep and sleep, and NullCPUPowerManagement will no longer be needed. By using this method I have gotten everything working except sleep (but its close). I found all of this information here and on other forums. I am in no way claiming any of this as my own work, I am simply bringing it all together in one place. Things you will need: A working install of OSX Lion or Snow Leopard A spare USB flash drive, USB hard drive, or internal hard drive (at least 8GB) A copy of Mountain Lion DP4 (Please don't ask me for it. I'm assuming you are a registered developer) Lnx2mac ethernet driver (get it here http://lnx2mac.blogs...osx-driver.html) A mountain lion compatible chameleon boot loader (get the pkg here) My P8P67-m Pro package (attached file) ​This pack includes (You do not need to download the following list, this is just to give credit): FakeSMC and Plugins (found it here: http://www.osx86.net...nd_plugins.html) DSDT for patched 3602 from samisnake Patched BIOS 3602 (not sure who patched it, but i found it here P8P67-M-PRO-ASUS-3602_modified.ROM) Kext Wizard by Janek202 (found it here http://www.insanelym...howtopic=253395) Installing the new BIOS (DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BAD BIOS FLASHES) 1) In your existing Lion or Snow Leopard install, replace your existing DSDT with samisnake's DSDT from the download package. 2) Remove NullCPUPowerManagment.kext from S/L/E. 3) Use Kext Wizard to repair permissions. In maintenance section check "System/Library?Extensions". This should automatically check the two sub entries as well. Choose the target disk, it should be the Lion/SL install you are currently in. 4) Install the new BIOS. I did this by putting the BIOS ROM on a flash drive and booting into the flash utility. *****FLASH THE BIOS TWICE****** I'm not sure why this is necessary but according to Asus, IT IS! If you do not do this zombies will eat you. I updated from the flash utility, then rebooted. The system forced me finish the flash, then rebooted again. I then repeated the whole process. No zombies. 5) Reboot as normal into your Lion/SL install. Creating your Mountain Lion installer and installing. To do this I followed eep357's guide from right here on insanelymac: http://www.insanelym...dpost&p=1826183 "My super fast easy method requires you don't install to MBR and that you have a hard drive with chameleon on it already that is new enough revision to boot ML. first, make empty partition available for installing onto on guid only drive, hfs+ formatted. RT click install ML app, mount InstallESD.dmg, navigate to basesystem.dmg and mount it. restore basesystem.dmg from ML install app(to usb or another small partition) via diskutility. Eject basesystem.dmg so u dont get it mixed up with new restored one as it will have same name. [delete packages alias in System/Installation on the new USB drive] Fire up ye mighty terminal and go to bash shell with:sudo -s then copy packages folder from installESD.dmg to System/Installation/ on your newly restored usb like this:cp -R (drag packages folder here) (drag installation folder from usb here) give it a few minutes to finish then do the same copy technique, but this time for mach_kernel from InstallESD.dmg to / of new usb:cp -R (drag mach kernel here) (drag entire usb installer volume here) and done with terminal-yay create /Extra folder on usb and only put in your smbios and org.chameleon.boot.plist, leave your DSDT out use kext wizard to install fakesmc and nullcpupowermanagement [not needed if you used the patched BIOS] to s/l/e on your usb drive, then use kext wiz repair and rebuild cache options reboot as normal, do not change boot drive in bios. At your normal chameleon prompt, choose instead to boot to your new installer (OSX Base system) and use boot flags -v add any other bootflags you normally use that are not already in your org.chamleon.boot.plist install DP4 and reboot back to your old OSX. From there use kext wiz again to install fakesmc to your new DP4 and any other kexts you know are required to boot and copy /Extra folder from installer to your completed installation. I still didn't put my DSDT in it yet reboot, and this time from chameleon prompt choose new OSX DP4 and have fun. Should always use -v to boot until your install is rock solid (with dev preview just always use it)." Thanks, eep. Some notes: My copy of ML was a .dmg file, not an .app file. If you have this, mount the dmg. BaseSystem.dmg is a hidden file at the root directory. You will need to show hidden files. In terminal type "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE". Return. Then type "killall Finder". Return. To unshow the hidden files do the same thing but use "FALSE" instead of "TRUE". The packages folder that needs to be copied is also in the root of the mounted ML installer image. I needed to use boot flag PCIRootUID=1 to boot the installer disk, and the installed ML. Installing P8P67-m drivers Once into your new Mountain lion install: Install the chameleon boot loader from the P8P67-m Pro Pack Use Kext Wizard to install all kexts in the P8P67-m Pro Drivers folder of the pack. You can drag multiple kexts into kext wizard. (IOAHCIFamaily.kext is patched for TRIM support and only needed if you use an SSD) Install the Lnx2Mac driver if you need ethernet support Copy the DSDT and SSDT to /Extra (Use the SSDT that is appropriate to your CPU). Add kernel flag PCIRootUID=1 to the boot.plist in /Extra Reboot. You should now be able to boot directly from your new ML install. If you want hardware monitoring such as CPU frequency and temps, use Kext Wizard to install the fakeSMC plugins that were included in the P8P67-m Pro Package. I used ACPISensor and IntelCPUMonitor. Others may be needed depending on what hardware you have and want to monitor. Of course you're on your own for video cards and other hardware. I use an ATI 5750. If you want to see what i did with that, check it out here: http://www.insanelym...dpost&p=1826652 P.S. This is my first guide, so please let me know if there's anything i need to fix. I hope it helps someone. P8P67-m Pro Pack.zip

  18. Samsung np350v5c Hardware list intel core i5 3210m hd4000 graphics (the most challenging part of the install 750gb hdd 6 gb ddr3 1600mhz dvd writer drive (although i changed to a bluray drive) i also changed the wifi card to a dell one to enable airport from the beginning mac os x 10.8.2 image/app Right so here goes this took me almost a week to get right. i tried a million methods to get qe/ci for the hd4000, a million attempts to get it fully functioning but this laptop has no complete guides/ or even anybody who has even completed a fully working install (so a first for anybody that's interested) First things first you can try find a usb loader that will work but in my experience the most sure fire way is to remove the hdd and mount the mac os x install image directly to a partition on your drive, (not only will this mean a quicker install but also another way of restoring it without a key) then install chameleon onto this drive please don't do what i did for the first few hours and use an older one as you will need the latest graphics injection method for this laptop! the following bios settings will also need changing Ahci needs to be set and enabled you need to disable secure boot (unless you can figure out a way of changing the uefi keys for uefi install) enable uefi and legacy boot save and reboot once all these things have been done you can start to run through the install process i found with the newer boot loader you will still need to use the command -x to enable a safe boot into the installer you actually don't need to change much on this installation and obviously a boot loader is already installed so just run through this installation once complete, restart and you will probably need a hdmi cable at the ready once you get to the boot loader screen insert this cable and watch the screen go to an external monitor this is normal and you will also see it goes to your external monitor! once here you will need to change you output connectors in your appleintelframebuffercapri.kext to enable the internal lvds port and thus your internal laptop screen, once you have done this restart and use the -v -f commands to remove the cache and see what kexts are loaded. if you have edited this kext correctly the screen on your laptop should light up and come to life you will also need to install voodoohda 2.7.2 package and the realtek r1000sl kext package to enable sound and network interface and output I also did some work on this laptop to get the processor power management setup using ssdtprgen and the smbios 10,1 once this is done and complete you have a fully functioning laptop even multitouch works, sleep will work as well the only thing that will not function is the memory card reader but hey i never use one anyway In fact for the money this laptop is amazing and i think one of the most compatible on the market i will write a list of the kexts needed and the actual edits needed for the appleintelframebuffercapri under this post i would like to thank artur-pt and ipoco and a few others for my relentless questioning and help wherever they can for this build

  20. Acer 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!
  21. With the purpose of running the beloved Apple Mac OS X on our Intel ASUS laptop I am writing this guide to share my experience and knowledge about this Hackintosh. This tutorial applies to running versions between 10.9 and 10.11.6, focusing specially in El Capitan. This method applies also for Sierra but at the moment my WiFi Card doesn't work well with 10.12 so I chose to remain in a stable Mac OS X I have 99% functionality: What Works : WiFi, Bluetooth, Airdrop, HandOff, FindMyMac (WiFi card has to be replaced, I put a BCM94352HMB) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated HD4400 graphics Trackpad with 1finger, 2finger, 3finger and 4finger gestures Keyboard (Perfect with Volume, Brightness, Play/Pause, Numpad working) Battery Percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI audio DVD Drive HDMI audio and video VGA out iMessage and FaceTime Recovery Partition What is not working Internal SD Card Reader When you install Clover Bootloader to your USB media or HDD you should select the following options: - Install for UEFI booting only - Install Clover in the ESP - Drivers64UEFI (Fat-64, OSxAptioFix2Drv) After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folder In the above mentioned “other” folder place the kexts that I will quote next, please note that the kexts marked in red are the absolute necessary ones for booting Mac OS X installer , the rest should only be installed afterwards, after having Mac OS X installed to your hard drive and directly to /System/Library/Extensions : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext BrcmPatchRAM (Mavericks) or BrcmPatchRAM2 (Yosemite or later) CodecCommander.kext DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext (Only for El Capitan) FakePCIID_IntelHDMIaudio.kext FakePCIID_BroadcomWiFI.kext (makes my BCM94352HMB work) FakePCIID_IntelHDGraphics.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) IntelBacklight.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext (Only for El Capitan) After all the kexts necessary are in the correct folder, proceed to mimic my config.plist Note that the Kext patches included only work for El Capitan. If you want older version support, post here and I can help. I recommend using Clover Configurator App config.plist.zip For your SMBIOS choose MacbookPro11,2 and shake those serial numbers to really get a genuine one. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin in your USB you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch I recommend patching these tables before installing Mac OS X in order to have a better user experience and better functionality as well as a cleaner and smoother install. Your computer may not even reach the installer since we have no way of disabling our discrete NVIDIA Geforce 820m without getting our hands dirty in DSDT patches. Delete all files that don’t start with DSDT or SSDT- If you have an SSDT with an x just delete it because it is dynamically loaded and so does not need our attention. Place the files in our interest in a folder and: cd /path/to/a/folder iasl -da -dl *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors. In the latest BIOS we have the following errors: DSDT- We will find 4 errors The parse op Zero errors can be fixed by deleting all the “Zero” you find in the conflicting place The remaining two errors are fixed by applying the ADBG fix from RehabMan repo SSDT-1- We find many errors and all can be fixed by applying the patch “Remove _PSS placeholders” SSDT-12- We find an error related to a specific sector of a cryptic DOS device, we can safely delete these following lines from the SSDT Now that all our ACPI tables are nice and clean we can proceed to patching First of all, open all the tables at the same time and hit Command + F to bring up the Find Replace dialog box and Find:GFX0 and Replace it with: IGPU Find:B0D3 and Replace it with HDAU Do this in all the tables, so the renames are the same in all your tables When that is done, apply the following patches to the DSDT: Use the patch "DTGP" (you can easily find it with our friend Google ) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix Windows 8” Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “7-8 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x0D" Use the patch "Igpu Brightness Fix" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" When you have applied the Audio Layout Patch just Find: layout and it should show the only result, then make that part look like mine, so that you can use AppleALC for native on the fly audio If you want HDMI audio you should open SSDT-10 and find layout again and make it look like the one you just edited in DSDT, we do this because we want layout-id 29 instead of layout-id 3 For battery percentage you should use the ASUS N55SL/Vivobook patch Finally when you did all that you should follow RehabMan’s tutorial for Disabling Discrete Graphics Cards, on a web which I am not allowed to mention. This will give you much more battery life and a lot less heat. You should read it properly and you will notice there is close to no difference between his example and our laptop so it will be easier than it looks like. Make sure you also use the patch he posts to fix shutdown and sleep when our NVIDIA is disabled. After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and cd /path/to/where/your/patched/tables/are Then delete all the original aml files And then iasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load it Place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" as I did in the attached config.plist. Before installing Mac OS X make sure in your BIOS you have legacy mode disabled and you have secure boot and fast boot also disabled, so that Clover works well. Also make sure the controller is set to AHCI mode. Remember to use a GUID partition table on your Hard Drive and if you plan to dual boot just create two Mac OS Extended Journaled partitions, don't create any Fat partition using Disk Utility cause that will leave you unable to install Windows in UEFI mode. Post-Install Finally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh (this can only be done when you have installed Mac OS X) https://github.com/P...ha/ssdtPRGen.sh Add it to the Sorted Order and you are done Make sure to set the hibernate mode to either 0 or 2 . ​You can copy the colour profiles from ASUS Splendid Utility and use them in Mac OS X, but for my eyes, I prefer the default LCD one This is the first fully functional Hackintosh I ever accomplished and it took me a few months of learning… I am using Mac OS X for about two or more years in this Hack and I am still in love like the very first boot hihihi This is almost the perfect HackBook and has worked since Mountain Lion until now Hope you enjoyed!

  23.  OS X 10.11 El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony VAIO S PLEASE REFER TO THE GUIDE. I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS IF ALREADY ANSWERED IN THE GUIDE! BY FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE YOU AGREE TO TAKE THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF LOSING DATA. ALWAYS BACKUP! This guide will give you step-by-step instructions on How to Install OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Sony VAIO SVS13. Sony VAIO S13p (SVS13A2C5E) Specs: Intel Core i7-3520M 12GB SDRAM Intel HD Graphics 4000 NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M Samsung 850 Evo 250GB What's working? Intel HD4000 Graphics with QE/CI Acceleration HDMI Sound (Speakers, Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI, USB) Keyboard, Touchpad USB 2.0/3.0 Webcam Optical Drive Ethernet Bluetooth (Intel) Brightness Power button Sleep/Wake UEFI/NVRAM *WiFi (Broadcom/Atheros) *Airport Extreme 2,4GHz/5GHz *802.11ac/n/g/b/a *Bluetooth (Broadcom/Atheros) *Airdrop *Handoff & Hotspot with BT4LE What's partially working? Bluetooth Intel BT worked OOB but does not feature Handoff since it's not a BT4LE. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Webcam Since the Exmor sensor built in is not the best, you get a dark image in OS X. Windows uses software/drivers to increase the brightness. What's not working? Intel WiFi Apple doesn't use Intel WiFi. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Discrete graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 640M uses NVIDIA Optimus for dual-configuration which is not supported the same way on OS X. VGA Apple removed this feature in OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion SD-Card/Memory Stick Reader (no drivers for OS X) Speed/Stamina switch Fingerprint sensor (no drivers for OS X) Disc Eject/Assist/Web/VAIO buttons You need… ... an empty USB flash drive or an external hard drive (8gb at least) ... a Mac or a virtual machine with OS X (10.6.8 or later) On your Mac/OS X VM Download OS X 10.11 El Capitan from the App Store Create the OS X Installer You can actually create the OS X installer on the (external) hard drive but to keep things simple from now on I will refer to ‚USB‘. IF YOU HAVE IMPORTANT DATA ON YOUR USB, PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP! THE USB WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED! You can create the USB with either a MBR or a GPT partition scheme. If you select MBR, you will have to manually create a FAT partition for CLOVER EFI and a separate HFS+J partition for the OS X Installer. With GPT you just need 1 HFS+J partition and Disk Utility creates a hidden EFI partition. Since we will use this USB with a UEFI system, we can use GPT. On legacy system you need a MBR USB. Create Partition(s) on USB Open Disk Utility under /Applications/Utilities. Select the USB. Click on the Partition tab. Click on Partition Layout > 1 partition. Click on Options. Select GUID Partition Table. Apply with OK. Under Format select Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Under Name rename the partition to „install_osx“. Click on Apply. Click on Partition. When it’s finished creating the USB partition(s) close Disk Utility. Make OS X Installer on USB*1 Open Terminal and type this command, then press Enter: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_osx --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction You need a password for this command*2. Type your password and press Enter. This process can take several minutes, depending on the USB write speed. Mine took 5 minutes to finish. Close Terminal. You now have a OS X installer for real Macs. We need the Clover bootloader to actually boot the OS X Installer on a non-Mac system. *1 The createinstallmedia method is not supported under OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Use alternative methods. *2 If you don't have a password (blank), you need to set one under System Preferences > User & Groups > Change Password Install Clover to USB Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Open the Clover installer package. Click on Continue, Continue. Click on Change Install Location. Select your USB drive now called ‚Install OS X El Capitan’. Don't select the internal Hard Drive on your real Mac/VM! Click on Continue. Click on Customize. Check ‚Install for UEFI booting only‘. ‚Install Clover in the ESP‘ will be selected automatically and installed to the hidden EFI partition. Under Drivers64UEFI check ‚OsxAptioFixDrv2-64‘. Optional: Install BlueMac under Themes. Click on Install. Type your password. Click on Install Software. When it’s finished, press Close. Since the EFI partition is hidden, we need to mount it to copy some files. But the Clover installer already mounted it.*3 Go to the EFI partition (on your Desktop). Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI Delete VBoxHFS.efi Download HFSPlus.efi https://github.com/JrCs/CloverGrowerPro/blob/master/Files/HFSPlus/X64/HFSPlus.efi?raw=true Copy HFSPlus.efi to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI Go to the folder /EFI/CLOVER/kexts Delete all the folders inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts except for ‚Other‘.

Select Desktop as your location. Click Save. Click Don’t Append. Rename the config file on your desktop to ‚config.plist‘. Copy config.plist from your Desktop to /EFI/CLOVER and replace the default one. Make a backup of your /EFI/CLOVER folder to the other USB partition (‚Install OS X El Capitain‘). You’ll need it later. Create a folder for that. Eject the EFI partition. Eject the USB. *3 If you unmounted/ejected the EFI partition of the USB, read the Mouning EFI section under Post Installation of this guide. On the Sony VAIO S BACKUP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT DATA BEFORE PROCEEDING. THE HARD DRIVE WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED! BIOS Settings Shut down your laptop. Press the Assist button. Press F2 to boot into BIOS. Restore default settings under the Exit tab. Make sure ‚UEFI‘ is on. Make sure ‚Booting from external device‘ is on.*4 Save settings. Shut down your laptop. *4 This option External Device Boot applies when you set the external device to first boot priority. it doesn't affect pressing F11 to boot from External Device. Boot the OS X Installer Plug in your USB into a USB 3 port. The USB 2 port will not work without GenericXHCI (GenericXHCI does not work in OS X 10.11 El Capitan anyway). Press the Assist button. Press F11 to boot from external device.*5 Press ENTER to boot the OS X Installer. *5 If you have set the External Device as first Boot Priority you don't have to boot from Rescue Mode (Assist Button). Just connect the USB and boot your Laptop. Installing OS X El Capitan Select language. Continue. Launch Disk Utility. Erase your hard disk. Rename your partition and apply. Exit Disk Utility. Install OS X. Continue. Select your hard drive partition. Install. This process creates the Recovery partition. After a while the OS X Installer will automatically restart and beging the real installation. The real installation can take several minutes, depending on read/write speeds. When it’s finished you will again boot into your USB’s Clover Menu. Select your partition in Clover Boot Menu and boot into OS X. Configure OS X. Installing Clover to the Hard Drive To boot without USB you need to install Clover again - this time your Hard Drive. It’s a similar process to installing it to USB. Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Open the Clover installer package. Click on Continue, Continue. Click on Change Install Location. Select your Hard Drive partition. Continue. Don't select your USB. Click on Customize. Check ‚Install for UEFI booting only‘. ‚Install Clover in the ESP‘ will be selected automatically. Under Drivers64UEFI check ‚OsxAptioFixDrv2-64‘. Check ‚Install RC scripts on target volume‘ (Optional) Check ‚Install Clover Preference Pane‘ Click on Install. When it’s finished, press Close. Enable ‚Hard disks’ under Finder > Preferences > General > Show these items on the desktop. You can disable it later. Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI Delete VBoxHFS.efi Open your USB drive. Copy the contents of the EFI-backup to EFI partition of your hard drive. Replace the files. Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/kexts. Rename ‚Other‘ to ‚10.11‘. Restart your laptop without the USB and boot into OS X. Post Installation Mounting EFI Whenever you install something to the EFI partition, you will need to first mount it.

  24. Could someone tell me in detail what all these features are and what exactly they mean? I would be grateful. I mean Clover and its settings, especially the CPU and PCI Devices tabs. I will start with the CPU: Halt Enabler PLimitDict UnderVoltStep Double First State Generate PStates Generate CStates Enable C2 Enable C4 Enable C6 Enable C7 Use system IO C3 Latency Bus speed (KHz) QPI (MHz) Saving mode Patch APIC Then PCI Devices: USB Ovner Ship USB Injection Inject Clock ID Inject EFI Strings Just a short description of what it is and what it serves.
  25. HI! I've been trying to install Lion on my system with the various AMD kernels floating about, but im not able to get it even close to getting to the install screen. I've seen that there are a few iso's around but none that work or have any seeders. From what i understand there is an issue with Finder and AMD but that the Finder from beta 2 works fine. I'm really interested in learning more about Osx86 and I would like to make my own install disk that will boot on an AMD system and install the beta 2 Finder automatically but my attempts have not been successful and I havent found a guide that explains it any better. All the guides I found state I have to have a working SL system and upgrade it, witch isn't ideal. What I was thinking was that I would transfer the content of the BaseSystem.dmg found in the app-store image and make the regular changes you would in order to make an intel install disk, add the new kernel and install chameleon. But that has (as I expected) not worked fore me. Does anyone know what files I would have to change in order to make it work and would be so kind as to help me out? Thanks!
