  1. Mojave (and maybe High Sierra 10.13.6) on Asrock H370M-ITX/ac and getting RX560 or RX580 to work with Intel graphics for full hardware acceleration Components used: Core i7 8700, UHD 630 Gigabyte Radeon RX560 Wifi/BT BCM943602BAED (DW1830) M.2 Sapphire Nitro RX 580 Samsung PM961 NVMe SSD *This guide requires you to know the basics, meaning how to create a macOS install drive, installing and using Clover. There are great beginners guides out there! As always you need at least FakeSMC to boot, every other kext I’ve used is mentioned in the guide. For Mojave beta you need to be enlisted with your Apple-ID in Apple’s beta programme. What is described here may work for High Sierra 10.13.6, but I doubt it to be reliable. Even in early beta status (PB3) Mojave runs much more stable and smoother than High Sierra ever did for me.* *UPDATE Mojave final* For the final release of Mojave you can use my attached Clover folder as a reference. If you don't have a Radeon RX 580 installed or you prefer WhatEverGreen just use the DSDT_no_graphics.aml and rename it to DSDT.aml. You need to have updated to BIOS V3.00 to use it. *UPDATE* I've updated to BIOS Revision 3.00 which seems to work fine in contrast to 1.50. Already compiled a new DSDT and uploaded it alongside a new config.plist. You can use both if you like. If you don't use a RX 580 you need to edit the PEG0-PEGP section in the DSDT to adjust it to your graphics hardware. With this DSDT and config in place you'll only need FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet, USBinjectall plus XHCI-300-Injector, Lilu plus AppleALC for Sound. You can add Shiki for iTunes DRM playback if you like, I've uploaded the latest version as well. Avoid Whatevergreen at this time. UEFI-BIOS settings: The board comes with BIOS version 1.20, there is an update 1.50 on the Asrock website. Usually it is good to stay updated but in this case I’ll recommend to stay on 1.20, because the 1.50 version seems to be unstable and I had restarts upon wake and things like that I couldn’t get fixed even with dsdt patches. So I just downgraded to 1.20 which runs fine. Settings needed: Just the usual. Disable fast boot and security boot (everything Windows-related), disable vt-d and enable XHCI hand-off. Activate multi monitor support and set VRAM to 64MB to activate the Intel IGPU. From what I’ve read most people recommend 128MB but I find the 64MB setting to be more reliable, getting artifacts with settings below or above 64MB. 128MB may be needed for 4k support, though. *Update* BIOS V 3.00 with Mojave final release works fine with 128MB. As for nVidia users: You may have to disable the Intel graphics. I’m using an AMD card and that is the brand to go these days since Apple decided to work with AMD Clover and power management: I recommend upgrading to 4586. It seems that Aptiomemoryfix is now working with H370 chipsets. I stayed on OsxAptiomemoryfix2 together with Emuvariable and it works. Feel free to experiment. *Update* Now using OsxAptioV3. For power management with your CoffeeLake cpu you can just tick plugin type within Clover or compile a ssdt with Pikeralphas script. Mojave reports my cpu correctly as Core i7 since PB3, before that it is just “Unknown” but that is just cosmetic. Graphics: *UPDATE* Whatevergreen 1.2.3 now supports Displayport on Nitro RX580. Still recommend DSDT or SSDT port activation instead as it runs more reliable and faster than WhatEverGreen. *UPDATE* I updated to PB4/DP5 and switched to a Sapphire Nitro RX 580. You don't need to spoof Kabylake anymore, SMBIOS 18,x now works and can use my attached DSDT_RX580 for your convenience! You'll need it for displayport to work as primary display or else you get black screen on boot and can use only HDMI. Problems are the same as written below in the graphics section. If you need iTunes you absolutely need to keep a copy of the latest Shiki that is available, because it is discontinued. The newest WhatEverGreen-Fix (1.2.0/1.2.1) does not work! If you want to use Final Cut and don't need iTunes just stay away from Shiki or Whatevergreen. This is the worst part. Getting the Radeon to run correctly alongside the Intel graphics took me weeks to figure out. While RX570 and 580 run out of the box in most cases, the RX560 models often do not or at least not correctly. Apple even banned them from eGPU use. For my approach you cannot use “Whatevergreen.kext”, it simply didn’t work for me the way I needed it. Instead I added some fixes to my DSDT to set the correct number of ports used (DP, HDMI, DVI) and tell macOS to use the correct frambuffer. For those who are not into dsdt editing I added my DSDT, look at the “PEGP” section how it is done. This works for the RX560 using the “Acre” framebuffer, you can replace it with “Radeon”, that works too. Other cards need a different framebuffer and a different number of ports. You can do it! BTW: Do not buy this Gigabytecard!!! It has some weird VBIOS on it, which caused me nightmares before I got the card to work! Buy a Sapphire card instead, they are used by Apple too. To get full hardware acceleration for encoding videos you have to have the Intel graphics enabled alongside your AMD card. Problem is, you cannot have it running simply as a second graphics card but you’ll need to “hide” it, means telling macOS that it doesn’t have any display connectors. Otherwise you’ll have screen artifacts or in the worst case just constant crashes. This can be done by adding a certain ig-platform-id in Clover. If you use 59120003 the Intel graphics will not show up in system profiler but it is there. You can check it with iStats or HWMonitor or look if the Kaby Lake graphics kexts are loaded. This ID makes the CoffeeLake UHD 630 to be recognized as a Kaby Lake gpu that has no display ports, is just used as a helper card. You’ll need it as a helper card for video encoding. That is what Intel graphics are used for in Macs, to support video encoding on the hardware side. You can check if hardware encoding is supposedly enabled by using MacX Video Converter Pro and VDADecoderChecker. If both say “yes” and “fully supported” this is a good start. But despite the widespread belief this doesn’t mean everything is set correctly! You now have to find out, how to get both cards working together. This is the moment where you have to choose between work and fun: Are you using FinalCut Pro for video editing or are you planning to use iTunes for entertainment? Up until this day (Mojave PB3 PB4/DP5, High Sierra 10.13.6) you cannot have both working correctly! I’ll show you how it is done both ways. The best settings for Final Cut: Use the DSDT I’ve added with the respective AMD settings for the RX560 or modify them for your graphics card. Use SMBIOS for iMac17,1 (14,2 does work but picture over DP port is ugly, iMac 18,1/2/3 do not work *Since Mojave PB4 they do work at least for RX580*) in Clover. Have AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kextin your Clover/kexts/Other folder. Until Mojave PB2 (may work on High Sierra 10.13.6): Fake-ID 3E928086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 These are the correct setting when installing Mojave (usually you will start with PB1 as the full installer). For Mojave PB3 and higher: Fake-ID 59128086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 After upgrading to PB3 you will get a black screen with 3E92 fake id because PB3 introduces Coffee Lake kexts and macOS will use these kexts instead but that doesn’t work with our ig-platform-id. So you can download the update to PB3 but before installing it you’ll need to change the fake-id to a usual Kaby Lake id. While this didn’t work in High Sierra and the first two Mojave betas (meaning you didn’t get full hardware encoding) it is now magically working with PB3. It is safe to remove AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kext after upgrading to PB3. For Mojave PB4 and higher (including final release): Only add ig-platform-id 3E920003 and inject Intel = Yes in Clover, no need for spoofing a fake id anymore. Now iMac18,3 works best with AMD. Intel only users should use iMac18,1 instead. The best setting for iTunes and why it is the worst for Final Cut: Just do the same thing as for FinalCut, put Shiki.kext into your Clover/kexts/other folder and add -shikigva boot argument. You can use -shikigva=1 or 2 or 12 it will work either way. Now you can watch movies with iTunes, yay! But it has some sideeffects. You cannot use this setting when seriously editing with Final Cut. While this works by tricking macOS to use the IntelGraphics to play protected video content, it doesn’t seem to be the way real Macs are doing this. As soon as you open FinalCut you will notice (check this with iStats or HWMonitor) that the Intel graphics is not or only barely utilized under certain circumstances depending on your material. Instead cpu usage skyrockets, indicating that slow software rendering is used instead of hardware encoding through Intel graphics. To make it worse the Radeon still “thinks” there is an Intel graphics helping so it does not run at highest potential. Wifi and Bluetooth *UPDATE* With Mojave PB4/DP5 Bluetooth stopped working with Rehabman's kext, my MagicMouse simply isn't connecting anymore. I decided to finally remove the card because handoff isn't working anyway these days with M.2 or NGFF bluetooth on High Sierra or Mojave (tried several ones "the internet" claims they would work oob but they do not ;)). That is what I wanted Bluetooth for. If you need Wifi I recommend you go with a cheap Wifi-only card, you don't need to pay 30 or 40 $ for dual cards that won't work the way they were intended to work. If you are on a micro ATX board and can have a graphics card plus PCIe Wifi/BT-card that actually connects to a physical USB port on you're board then you may be lucky enough to have handoff working as expected. I'm having a wifi repeater laying around with an ethernet port in case I may need wifi someday on my hack. I swapped the Intel Wifi card that was coming with the mainboard plugged into the onboard M.2 port with a compatible Dell card. The DW1830 or BCM943602BAED. The wifi part runs half way out of the box, but if you want the card to appear as Apple AirportExtreme and set the country code according to your country you need to put FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext into Clover/kexts/other and add some Clover kext-to-patches by PMHeart. Name: com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC Find: 75166644 3BA3581A 0000750C 4183FE04 7406 Replace: 66906644 3BA3581A 00006690 4183FE04 6690 Comment: AirPortBrcmNIC - PCIe in 10.13.x Name: com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC Find: 4183FCFF 7435488D 55D0 Replace: 66C70644 45EB348D 55D0 (*this is for DE country code, change for your need) Comment: BCM4352-Country Code Bluetooth will work thanks to Rehabman’s kexts. You’ll need BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext OR BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. The Data.kext can be injected through Clover, just throw it into the kexts/other folder, the Repo.kext has to be installed in /Library/Extensions on your mac drive, it won’t work with Clover. I had issues with the Data.kext, Bluetooth was gone on every second or third reboot. The Repo.kext is more reliable, haven’t had any issues yet. I really don’t like the kexts to be installed in my system but I guess I have to live with it for the time being. Oh, handoff and continuity don’t work, doesn’t matter that system profiler shows them as enabled. At least it works in one way: the mac can handoff Safari pages to my iPhone, but not the other way around. Documents opened on my phone show up in the dock, but they are not loaded. This issue is around since at least High Sierra and from what I’ve read Rehabman is not going to fix this, because he founds this features not worth it. I have to disagree, these are very convenient and valuable features if you work with desktop, laptop and tablet in different situations, I miss this capability very much! Audio Audio works with Lilu.kext plus AppleALC.kext and you need to inject Layout ID=1 in Clover if you don't use a patched DSDT. For Mojave use the boot setting -lilubetaall to force the kexts to load. If you like to have DP or HDMI audio add a HDAU device to your dsdt (see mine for reference). There's an audio patch already added in my DSDT, so you don't need to use the Clover patch. Credits: Credits go to this great community! I hope I mentioned everyone in this guide whose insights made this hack possible. If I have forgotten someone please let me know! CLOVER_Mojave_Final.zip
  2. Hi guys, Though native graphics acceleration is supported on i3 from Mojave, I'm not able to manage to get it. This is my system configuration : Motherboard: Asus Prime H370-Plus CPU: i3-8100 (UHD 630) OS: Mojave 10.14.2 I'm trying every possible way to get full graphics acceleration. But whatever I try it shows only 4MB video memory or leads to Kernal Panic. Here are some ways I have tried so far: Prerequisites: Installed latest Lilu+WEG on L/E. set DMVT prealloc to 64MB on bios. Option 1: IntelGFX-> 0x3E928086, ig-platform-id-> 0x3E9B0007, Inject Intel = true. Output: Kernal Panic Option 2: Blank IntelGFX, blank ig-platform-id, Inject Intel = false Output: Kernal Panic Option 3: IntelGFX-> 0x3E928086, ig-platform-id-> 0x5912000, Inject Intel = true. Output: Booted Successfully but no graphics acceleration. I knew that ig-platform-id-> 0x5912000 doesn't work in mojave and its works only for high sierra but I set this because with this ig-platform-id I can boot. Another way I can boot it by setting invalid Fake IntelGFX value like 0x12345678. Option 4: Downloaded Intel FBPatcher & followed this guide. But as I opened the app, its shows like this: It clearly indicates it neither can detect Intel CPU generation nor GPU memory (currently shows 0 MB). I changed to different PlatformId from the drop down but no improvement. Anyway I applied a patch with SMBIOS ->Macmini8,1 by someione's recommendation . I attached a config file (config_fbpather.plist) for this. Output: Kernal Panic I have tried the upper mentioned methods with SMBIOS like iMac14,2 / iMac18[1,2,3] and Macmini8,1. I'm using HDMI port for display output. Now I don't know whats wrong with theses methods but maybe someone can help me to figure out this problem. I have also attached those config.plist files. Thanks in advance. config_fakeid_0x3E928086.plist config_fbpatcher.plist config_fbpatcher_with_device_id.plist config_platform-id_0x59120000.plist
  3. Introduction 30th October Brooklyn, New York, Apple announced a "re-engineered" Mac Mini - the first update to small sized desktop Mac since 2014. Surprisingly, they also unveiled a new i3 8th generation based "affordable" Mac Mini which costs $799. Cool...right? Not cool for me. So, I decided to build a really "affordable" hackintosh mac mini instead and successfully managed to build it around $614 .This is my 4th hackintosh build. Hardware Asus Prime H370-Plus Intel Core i3 8100 3.6GHz Corsair Vengeance 2400MHz DDR4 16 GB RAM Kingston SSDNow A400 240GB Cooler Master MWE 450 Bronze, 80+ Bronze Certified 450W Power Supply LG VGA Monitor (1366x768) HDMI to VGA Adapter DVI-D to VGA Adapter (Optional) Logitech USB Keyboard & Mouse Software used macOS Mojave 10.14.2 Clover EFI Bootloader 2.4k r4813 Clover Configurator 5.3.2.0 What works Graphics Audio All USB ports Sleep/Wake iMessage/FaceTime Instructions BIOS Settings: Use "Delete" to enter you UEFI setup. Load Optimized Defaults Disable VT-d Disable Secure Boot Mode Set OS Type Other Turn off internal Serial port Turn off Network stack for boot Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled Enable HD Audio Don't enable decode over 4G Set Primary Display to iGPU Set DMVT pre-alloc to 64MB or 128 MB Set USB legacy to enabled Activate XMP profile 1 Set ERP to enable Installation: I used the default command to create a bootable Mojave Installer on a 8GB USB drive. Then I installed the Clover_v2.4k_r4813 pkg on the bootable drive with these options: Also select EmuVariableUefi-64.efi from UEFI Drivers list which will fix the rebooting issue if you may face during Mojave installation. Next, mount the USB's EFI partition and navigate to Clover/kexts/Other and place FakeSMC.kext & USBInjectAll.kext into that. Now go back to Clover folder and delete config.plist file and paste an empty config.plist file. I have attached it at the end of the post. Plug the USB to your machine and press F8 and select your bootable drive. Next Format the drive using disk utility & install macOS. During installation the computer will reboot several times but every time press F8 and select your bootable drive and then select Install Mojave from your SSD/hard drive. Post Installation: Run Clover Configurator and go to TOOLS > Mount EFI > Mount Partition > Open Partition (choose your macOS drive) Copy the EFI folder from USB's EFI to your drive's EFI. Gather the necessary kexts. FakeSMC.kext Realtek Lan Driver a.k.a RealtekRTL8111.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext for graphics AppleALC.kext for audio USBInjectAll.kext for USB ports Now open Terminal and type the following one by one: sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/* sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions/* sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/* sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions/* sudo chown root:admin / This will fix ownership and permissions... Copy & paste all kexts to Desktop & use any Kext Installer to install them to /Library/Extensions/. Then run the following command into terminal: sudo kextcache -i / Open /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with Clover Configurator Next, we have to edit config.plist file . First make a backup of the empty config file. Download the latest Clover Configurator and open the config file. Next I have done the following modifications: ACPI: HDAS -> HDEF, HECI -> IMEI, GFX0 -> IGPU, XHC1 -> XHC, EHC1 -> EH01, EHC2 -> EH02 Under Generate Options, check PluginType Under Fixes, check FixShutDown, FixHPET, FixIPIC Under Drop Tables, check Halt Enabler, FixHeaders, FixMCFG Boot: Arguments: dart=0 Devices: IntelGFX=0x3E928086, USB-> check Inject, FixOwnership, Audio=1, check ResetHDA GUI: Under Hide Volume, Click + and enter "Preboot" Graphics: Inject Intel, ig-platform-id=0x3E9B0007 SMBIOS: iMac 18,1 Rt Variables: Click the dropdown and select "UseMacAddr0", in MLB enter the Board Serial Number from SMBIOS section. Double check if CsrActiveConfig value is set to 0x67 or not. Reboot. Graphics: This is where I stuck nearly 1 month. After setting IntelGFX=0x3E928086 & Inject Intel with ig-platform-id=0x3E9B0007 it should work right after reboot as WhateverGreen handles the rest. But it didn't work, the display goes off whenever I tried to boot. I have tried the other combination like, IntelGFX & ig-platform-id to blank with uncheck Inject Intel as i3 8th gen UHD 630 is natively supported in mojave. But no luck. I only able to boot with a invalid IntelGFX. Next, I followed @headkaze's framebuffer patching using WhateverGreen guide. I tried to use Intel FB-Patcher a.k.a Hackintool, but its shows me like this: That means it can't detect the CPU generation & also the video memory. No matter what SMBIOS I tried. Even ioreg showed no "AppleIntelFrameBufferX". So forget about framebuffer patching. Though I tried different combinations of framebuffer patching which I found in this forum but it didn't work. Detecting CPU generation & Video memory is really important if you want a framebuffer patch. I also tried different Lillu+WEG versions. I even upgraded the BIOS to the latest version. Then I found a framebuffer patch which also consists a connectors patch, which worked for ASUS H370M-Plus motherboard, worked for me. As I have only HDMI, DVI-D & VGA video port. Row 1: Index 2, BusID 0x02, Type HDMI Row 2: Index 3, BusID 0x04, Type HDMI <-- assumes HDMI here Row 3: Index 1, BusID 0x01, Type DP Just go to Deviecs->Properties and paste this: Save the config file & restart. Now I have 1536 MB Intel UHD 630. YESS !!! The patch works for both DVI-D & HDMI even I don't have to change type HDMI to DVI-D. So you see how connectors patch plays a crucial part if you want to use your Intel iGPU & onboard HDMI, DVI-D & DP connectors. After applying the patch the Hackintool looks like: And here are the connectors tab for HDMI & DVI-D respectively. USB Port Fix: I followed the @headkaze's USB port patching guide mentioned in his thread. Now, as my USB controller's device id is 8086:A36D I had to install XHCI-unsupported.kext in Clover/kexts/Other. So after removing unused ports General->USB tab looks like this: Next, after rebooting with -uia_exclude_hs uia_include=HS09,HS10 boot flag it looks like this: Now, I used “Export” button to generate the USBPorts.kext & copied the file into EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other. Removed unnecessary files like boot flags (-uia_exclude_ss -uia_exclude_hs uia_include=x), USBInjectAll.kext, Clover Renames (XHC, EH01, EH02). After rebooting the USB port limit is fixed. I have attached the kext files also if anybody needs it. config_usb.plist config.plist USBPorts.kext.zip
  4. Since I'm an NVIDIA user, I won't update until the farce with NVIDIA's web drivers for Mojave is solved - but this guide works already for 10.14 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 previois GPU kexts 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 sever flicker. 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 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 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. 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. 2.4 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. 2.4.1 Framebuffers If you're facing problems with output from your internal GPU, you can try the framebuffer patches listed by @BackwardMac: 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 DSDT.aml hack2
