  1. So apple has presented a new and updated mac mini a few days ago, and the great news seems to be the use of desktop processors in it, in fact, all the specs seems to match a typical desktop socket 1151 v2 coffeelake system without a dedicated gpu, so i am wondering if the smbios of this machine could be our new smbios of preference for coffeelake desktop machines. So i have created this new topic to discuss about it. Of course we will have to wait to do tests using the first public version of mac os which integrates this smbios, because when every new mac is released it's smbios is available initialy just in a purpose made mac os build and then it's added for all the os builds in the following releases. So what do you think about the possibility of using this new smbios for desktop coffeelake machines instead of the imac 18.3/18.2 ones? https://www.apple.com/mac-mini/specs/
  2. This tutorial has been updated on GITHUB to 10.14 the tutorial on insanelymac got too fragmented for a simple forum thread and will not be updated, but still be used for discussion and hints, tips and tricks Dell XPS 15 (9550, Version of 2016) Sierra 10.13.1 Tutorial Before we start: this installation includes real time DSDT/SSDT patching from within clover. This is pretty easy to install. But it is NOT suited for people with no or only few knowledge in Hackintosh Systems. If you only know how to copy commands in your shell and you dont know what they're doing, then stop the tutorial and revert to windows or buy a real mac. Even if you get it running: this system is not failsafe and will be broken multiple times in its usage time, where you have to fix it without a tutorial. Optional steps are marked in GREEN, System dependent steps are BLUE English is not my mother-tongue and i'm writing this without proof reading, so please forgive my bad spelling If you've questions or something doesn't work: first check if you've done all steps of this tutorial! If yes: please read the whole thread (doesn't matter how long it is) before asking to prevent multiple questions. Additionally do a search in google and this forum. Credits: Many knowledge of "how to hackintosh a dell in the first place" by the tutorial of @Gymnae http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319766-dell-xps-9550-detailled-1011-guide/ Using many kexts and solutions from @RehabMan What's not working: Hibernation (works somehow, but high chance to destroy your whole data), Sleep works fine! SD-Card reader Killer 1535 Wifi (rarely used, need replace) nVidia Graphics card (Intel works) FileVault 2 (full HDD encryption) Requirements: one working MAC OS X Enviroment 16GB USB Stick (larger is sometimes not bootable and/or requires advanced partitioning) MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1 installation file from the app store (redownload, just in case) Knowledge in PLIST editing USB Harddrive for backup - you'll loose all data on your computer! Step 1: Prepare Installation Use the existing Mac to download the Sierra installer from the App Store and create a bootable USB stick with CLOVER. You can do this with the App "Pandora's Box" of insanelymac (use google for download link), which is pretty easy to use. Optional: check if your SSD can be switched to 4k sector size. This prevents NVMe corruption. See https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/4k_sector.md After you've finished you need to download the Dell XPS 15 specific configurations for clover. Link: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/archive/10.13.zip and unzip this file or checkout git directly: git clone https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX.git You only need the folder 10.13, you can delete the 10.11. I'll refer to this folder by "git/" Now mount the hidden EFI partition of the USB Stick by entering diskutil mount EFI Inside the terminal. Mac OS will automaticly mount the EFI partition of the USB stick, but just in case: make sure it really is Overwrite everything in the CLOVER folder of the partition EFI with the content of git/10.13/CLOVER. If your PC has a Core i5 processor, you'll have to modify your config.plist in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/: search for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000. If you could use the 4k sector patch, replace the config.plist with the 4kconfig.plist. If you use a hynix device and you didnt do the 4k sector switch, you'll have to add the following patch to your config.plist <key>Comment</key> <string>IONVMeFamily Pike R. Alpha Hynix SSD patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>9sEQD4UcAQAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>IONVMeFamily</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>9sECD4UcAQAA</data> Go into the EFI Configuration (BIOS) of your Dell XPS 15: Also disable the SD-Card Reader to reduce the power consumption drastically. Insert the stick on the Dell XPS 15 and boot it up holding the F12 key to get in the boot-menu and start by selecting your USB-Stick (if you've done it correctly it's named "Clover: Install macOS Sierra", otherwise it's just the brandname of your USB-Drive). You should get to the MacOS Installation like on a real mac. If you're asked to log-in with your apple-id: select not now! Reason: see Step 5. Step 2: Partition and Installation INFORMATION: after this step your computer will loose ALL data! So if you haven't created a backup, yet: QUIT NOW! Dont install macOS yet. Select the Diskutil and delete the old partitions. Create a new HFS partition and name it "OSX". If you want to multiboot with Windows 10, then you'll have to create a second partition, too (also HFS! Dont use FAT or it will not boot! You have to reformat it when installing Windows). Make sure to select GUID as partition sheme. Close the Diskutil and install OSX normally. You'll have to reboot multiple times, make sure to always boot using the attached USB stick. So dont forget to press F12. After the first reboot you should see a new boot option inside clover, which is highlighted by default. Just press enter. If you only see one, then something went wrong. Step 3: Make it bootable After a few reboots you should be inside your new macOS enviroment. You can always boot into it using the USB stick. Remove the USB drive after successful bootup. Enter diskutil mount EFI in your terminal, which should mount the EFI partition of your local installation. install git/Additional/Tools/Clover_v2.4k_r4003.pkg. Make sure to select "Install Clover in ESP". Also select to install the RC-Scripts. This should install the Clover Boot System. Now copy everything from git/10.13/CLOVER to EFI/CLOVER like you did before by creating the usb stick. (if you had to modify the config.plist in step 1, do it here, too). Your system should be bootable by itself. Reboot and check if your system can boot by itself. Step 4: Post Installation Because all DSDT/SSDT changes are already in the config.plist, you dont need to recompile your DSDT (albeit i suggest doing it anyway to make your system a lil bit more failsafe, see gymnaes El-Capitan tutorial for more informations). So we can skip this part and go directly to the installation of the required kexts. Open a terminal and goto the GIT folder. sudo cp -r ./Post-Install/LE-Kexts/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.bak 2> /dev/null sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.bak 2> /dev/null sudo ./AD-Kexts/VoodooPS2Daemon/_install.command Now you'll have to replace the config.plist. Because you'll install modified kexts you'll HAVE TO replace the config.plist in your installation. Otherwise your PC will not boot anymore. diskutil mount EFI replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with git/Post-Install/CLOVER/config.plist. Again: if your PC has a Core i5 processor, search the config.plist for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000. OPTIONAL (in case you've audio problems): AppleHDA has some problems after Wake-Up. You'll have to plug in a headphone to get your speakers working again. You can use VoodooHDA instead, which breaks the headphone jack most of the time, but makes the rest much more stable. sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/CodecCommander.kext sudo rm /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/SSDT-ALC298.aml then remove from your config.plist from the key "KextsToPatch" the elements "AppleHDA#1" to "AppleHDA#7". Install the package: git/Post-Install/AD-Kexts/VoodooHDA-2.8.8.pkg i also suggest moving some of the kext from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13 to /Library/Extensions. It's just more stable. Finalize the kext-copy by recreating the kernel cache: sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache sudo rm -rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sometimes you'll have to redo the last command if your system shows "Lock acquired". OSX 10.12.2 removed the posibility to load unsigned code. You can enable this by entering sudo spctl --master-disable If you're using the 4K monitor, you'll have to copy the UHD enabling kexts to your clover directory: sudo cp ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/UHD-Kexts/* /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/ To enable GPU acceleration: Edit your clover config file again and remove the following block from it: To prevent getting in hibernation (which can and will corrupt your data), just set the default sleep mode to "suspend to ram" (sleep) instead of "suspend to disk" (hibernation) sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 To get HDMI Audio working: Search for your Boarrd-ID in the config.plist and open /S/E/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/contents/plugin/AppleGraphicePolicy.kext/contents/info.plist with a texteditor. Search for your board-id in there and change the value of it from "Config2" to "none" OPTIONAL (alternative power management): the whole power management is done by intels speed step technology (HWP), which is enabled in the clover config. If you want to let OSX manage the power management, you'll have to do these steps: sudo cp ./Post-Install/CLOVER/ACPI/optional/SSDT.aml /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ then open the config.plist (/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist) and change <key>HWPEnable</key><true/> to <key>HWPEnable</key><false/>. Step 5: iServices (AppStore, iMessages etc.) WARNING! DONT USE YOUR MAIN APPLE ACCOUNT FOR TESTING! It's pretty common that apple BANS your apple-id from iMessage and other services if you've logged in on not well configured hackintoshs! If you want to use the iServices, you'll have to do some advanced steps, which are not completly explained in this tutorial. First you need to switch the faked network device already created by step 4 to be on en0. Goto your network settings and remove every network interface. sudo rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot, go back in the network configuration and add the network interfaces (LAN) before Wifi. You also need to modify your SMBIOS in the config.plist of Clover in your EFI partition with valid informations about your "fake" mac. There are multiple tutorials which explain how to do it like "http://www.fitzweekly.com/2016/02/hackintosh-imessage-tutorial.html". It's possible you have to call the apple hotline to get your fake serial whitelisted by telling a good story why apple forgot to add your serial number in their system. (aka: dont do it if you dont own a real mac). I personally suggest using real data from an old (broken) macbook. Step 6: Upgrading to macOS 10.13.2 or higher / installing security updates Each upgrade will possibly break your system! (Update: after the latest updates in this tutorial the system should be update-proof.) Step 7: Fixes / Enhancements / Alternative Solutions / Bugs See: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/Tutorial_10.13_Step7.md Afterword and fixes as i said before: this is not a tutorial for absolute beginners, albeit it's much easier then most other tutorials, because most is preconfigured in the supplied config.plist. Some Dells have components included, which are not supported by these preconfigured files. Then i can only suggest using Gymnaes tutorial which explains most of the DSDT patching, config.plist editing and kexts used in detail and use the supplied files here as templates. Warning: Some people have reported multiple data losses on this machine. I suggest using time-machine whenever possible! If your device is detected as "Model Name: Apple Device", see: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319764-guide-dell-xps-15-9550-sierra-10122-quick-installation/page-13?do=findComment&comment=2362337 If you want to save the settings of the display brightness: downgrade to clover 3899, in the never versions the nvram restore is broken. USBInjectAll is not intended for permanent use. You should check which USB are really required to be injected and modify your DSDT/SSDT. 4K Touchscreen only: Multitouch can be achieved with the driver from touch-base.com, but it's not open source - costs > 100 $ Not a bug: if you REALLY want to use the 4K Display natively and disable the Retina Mode (max 1920x1080), see: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/macbook-pro-retina-display-faq/macbook-pro-retina-display-hack-to-run-native-resolution.html Tutorial Updates 27. March 2017: UHD Kexts added, replaces perl command 23. March 2017: 4k sector tutorial against NVMe corruption added 7. March 2017: Suggestion to disable the SD Card Reader for reduced power consumption 4. February 2017: Dell SMBIOS Truncation workaround added 23. January 2017: Hynix SSD fix added 31.

December 2016: FakeSMBios added Accessories Appendix: The official Dell adaptor DA200 (http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=at&l=de&s=dhs&cs=atdhs1&sku=470-abry) works completly on Sierra 10.2.2. You can use the Network, USB, HDMI and VGA. Everything is Hot-Pluggable a cheap 3rd party noname USB-C -> VGA adaptor didnt work you can charge the Dell with a generic USB-C Power Adaptor, but USB-C has only a maximum power of 100W, so it's either charging OR usage, not both. Dont forget you need a special USB-C cable (Power Delivery 3.0) for charging.
  3. Hello everyone! I am fairly new to the world of Hackintosh. I recently moved my previous build into a smaller form factor. However, I am running into a series of problems with the USB ports on the new case and the new motherboard. Part List: - i7-7700k - Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5 - 16GB Trident Z RGB 3200 MHz - Sapphire RX 470 - NZXT Kraken x62 - NZXT H200 for the case Everything in the Hackintosh works just like it did before, nothing changed in the hardware department other than the motherboard (previously a gigabyte Z20X Ultra) and the case. This motherboard does not have any USB 2.0 ports in the back, there is only one header on the board, currently taken by the Kraken x62. The rest of the ports are all either USB 3.1 Gen1 or USB 3.1 Gen2, and the front of the case has 3.1 Gen1 ports as well. This is my current problem: When I plug something into either the type A or type C Gen2 ports, it works fine as a normal USB 3.x device with normal speeds, but when I plug something into any other USB port, it only works at lower 2.0 speeds. This is a big problem for me, since I have a few external devices that need the 3.0+ speeds and I don't know what to do. I tried to follow many different guides on how to patch USB ports, remove the limits, etc... But nothing seems to work. Please someone help me!
  4. Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU: The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way. This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app. TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac. Features: - Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers) - You can use any volume you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will format it to make it GUID!) - Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery, and you can use TINU to install macOS too. - All vanilla, the bootable macOS installers created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in the terminal - Open source, you will know what this program does on your computer and also you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code - Does not require to do anything of special first, just open the program, and make sure you have a USB drive pulugged in and that you have a macOS installer app in the system. - No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive/partition for you - Uses recent and more modern APIs and SDKs and Swift 3 language - Transparent graphics style available (use alt + s on the keyboard or View->Use transparent style) - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without needing for an update - Advanced section, to customize your bootable macOS installer Features that are planned for some future versions: - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool (TINU can already mount EFI partitions from version 2.0, but a dedicated section which allows to mount every EFI partition in the system will be added) - Install clover and configure clover - Install kexts inside the kexts folder of clover - Clover drivers customization - Use custom dsdt in clover - integrated pre-made clover config templates database from a remote and open repository - Support for other languages, at least Italian Rquirements: - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer) - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of at least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media) Download: - You can download the pre-made and code signed binary from the releases section of the github repo: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases - Or you can just build your own copy by just downloading the source code and then using Xcode (requires Xcode 8): https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU Frequently asked questions: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs Useful links: Thread (english) on insanelymac.com: - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/326959-tinu-the-macos-installer-creator-app-mac-app/ Thread (italian) on insanelymac.com: - https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/333261-tinu-app-per-creare-chiavette-di-installazione-di-macos-thread-in-italiano/ Thread (english-german) on hackintosh-forum.de: - https://www.hackintosh-forum.de/index.php/Thread/33630-TINU/ Facebook hackintosh help and beta testing (Italian only): - https://www.facebook.com/groups/Italia.hackintosh/?fref=ts Contact me (project creator): - Insanelymac.com profile: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/user/1390153-itztravelintime/ - email: piecaruso97@gmail.com Note that: - This software is under GNU GPL v3 license so any new branch/mod/third party release must be open source and under the same license - I (project creator) assume no responsibility for any use of this app and this source code, and also for any kind of hardware and software damage to any computer and any device or peripheral that may come from this app or source code during it's use and outside it's usage - I (project creator) do not guarantee support to you, this is only an open source project, not a product released by a company! - This project is born only for educational and demonstrative purposes, it's not intended to be used for commercial purposes and it will never be, don't use source code from this project to create apps or software for that aim. - This is a no-profit project, born only to let people to create macOS install medias in a more simple way and also to learn how to create this kind of apps.

  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. Hi, do you know where someone could start getting involved in development for Hackintosh / IOS (jailbreaks etc.) development? I am searching for information about the Kernel development rather than developing apps. I recently finished my bachelor of engineering in electric engineering but the computer science always interested me more. We are being tought about some principles of a operation systems and writing code in c.. Until know I found the apple developer website, and the books from Jonathan Levin (but they are some kind of expensive for my current situation as a student). I also think that it would be useful to get started with the structure of the linux kernel. Do you have more sources I could learn more? How did you become what you are know in the hackintosh community? Google is not very helpful "Hackintosh development" only brings up how to develop apps with an hackintosh... I posted it in AMD because I am especially interested in the kernel manipulation to get the XNU Kernel working under AMD. If this is the wrong corner, please move it in the right one. Thank you. EDIT And for sure other sources are the wikis of insanelymac and the other hackintosh websites!

  8. A friend of mine called me for support in this project, so I put some effort to help him getting it work and wanted to write a few lines to explain how we reach this, knowing that still it's not 100%. Eventual advices will be greatly appreciated. With this particular hardware making it work was a little bit different than from guides I read. Bios settings: CFG-Lock: Disabled VT-d Tech: disabled Windows 8/8.1: enabled Boot mode: UEFI Check IGT instead of PEG to disable integrated graphic in BIOS preferences as we want to use NVIDIA card even without acceleration. User tominabox1 succeed with i6700k while we have an i7700k: need to patch Clover 2.4k (https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ ) with Clover Configurator. First prepare usb stick: I followed this: http://beyondspec.org/2017/01/04/the-foreigner-macos-sierra-10-12-2-on-an-alienware-13-r3-2016/ A little bit of tweaking was enough to make it boot: /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext is useless because it's the driver for a touchpad we don't have. Now on Clover Configurator: Graphics>ig-platform-id and set it as 0x19120000 (nVidia GTX 1060) Kernel and Kext Patching>FakeCPUID and set it as 0x0506e3 SMBIOS > set it up like an iMac 17,1 Disable SIP: you can find it at Rt Variables>CsrActiveConfig. Set it to 0x67 /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi is not needed as we used both OsxAptioFix2Drv.efi and OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi : boot was inconsistent but we found it working disabling PowerNap (dart=0) and Nvidia web driver (nv_disable=1) at boot. If you're lucky you'll see something like this: Graphics are recognized but there's only 8 MB of RAM because driver still is not installed. Here's the content of Driver64UEFI AppleImageCodec-64.efi AppleKeyAggregator-64.efi AppleUITheme-64.efi CsmVideoDxe-64.efi DataHubDxe-64.efi EmuVariableUefi-64.efi FSInject-64.efi FirmwareVolume-64.efi HFSPlus.efi NTFS.efi OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi SMCHelper-64.efi Attached you can find the usb-stick's UEFI and the final hard drive's one, working silently with apple boot logo mode on. You can copy this after downloading lately Nvidia web drivers; indeed, Pascal support is now official: check latest version WebDriver-378.05.05.15f01. Guide here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/to...ver-updates-for-macos-sierra-update-04192017/ CUDA too is requested for best results. AGDPfix-2.app is needed before rebooting: check out the 1.3 version that will fix graphic's kext. After installing you need to patch audio: https://www.hackintosh.zone/file/136-all-in-one-sound-solution/ will work on 90% cases. In this particular case we found Voodoo generic driver working. If volume is too low go to /S/L/E/VoodooHDA.kext and find the key VoodooHDAEnableHalfVolumeFix and change it from "true" to "false" We know it's still a mess but after a long time working on it this is by far the only 100% working version with Wifi, ethernet, audio and video. The only problem is during shutdown when it fails unmounting disks. These are comparison's results between Crapintosh (? definitely I wouldn't call this no more after testing it) and an official iMac 17,1 5k lately-2015 with i6700K and AMD Radeon R9 M390 2048 MB Blur test on Photoshop: We created on both computers a 600dpi 12x12 inches image (CMYK 8 bit: a 197.8 MB file) with a colored square on it and then Filter > Blur > Radial Blur, setting amount to 100, "zoom mode" and "best" checked. Official iMac 5k did it on 01:08:03 Hackintosh did it on 00:56:57 I know that is only my opinion, but Apple would better consider in making new hardware and not only phones: results are so impressive, even boot is fast!

    Sierra su Asus N551JW laptop

    Salve a tutti, posseggo il laptop di Asus modello N551JW di un paio di anni fa. Grazie a varie guide e post sia qui che altrove sono riuscito a installare il MAC OS X 10.12.6 Sierra. Cosa sono riuscito a far funzionare: Audio utilizzato AppleALC 668 Bluethoot sto utilizzando un dongle esterno via USB Porte USB3 funzionanti IntelGraphics integrata funzionante come HD5200 Scheda Ethernet Standby funziona perfettamente iMessage & account Apple Store Masterizzatore DVD lo riconosce Cosa non funziona: WI-FI (e per questo è necessaria sostituzione hardware con una compatibile) Tastiera non riconosciuta, ma funzionante a metà: tasti per audio funzionanti con Fn+F10(muto)+F11(abbassare)+F12(aumentare), altri tasti no come luminosità e retroilluminazione della tastiera Batteria, riconosce solo se collegato all'alimentazione elettrica e riporta lo status della batteria fisso allo 0%, ho provato a staccare l'alimentazione e pur rimanendo a 0% il PC non va in errore né va in stop, dovrei effettuare un patch al DSDT, ma non so come si fa. Lettore di schede SD Fotocamera Qualcuno può aiutarmi a sistemare, possibilmente, ciò che non funziona? Grazie.

  16. I decided to write up an Article on Understanding how Clover's KextsToPatch feature works. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of documentation explaining how to use this feature correctly (not that I have been able to find anyway). There is a lot of information out there about what to use, and what to put into your config.plist, but not much as to how to find out why the values used are used, and how the "data" was obtained. This guide hopes to address that. I tried to update this information on the Wiki, but the authentication between Github and Google appears to be nonfunctional... or no longer open to the public. "Authentication failed Provider did not validate your credentials (invalid_credentials) - please retry or choose another login service" This Guide will hopefully help those of you (like me) who would like to know how (and why) to use a tool, and not just use it a certain way because you were told to. For now, this Guide will just be an expansion of the part of the Wiki page found here. KextsToPatch <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> Aside from the patches already built-in to Clover, you also have the ability to create your own by using the following obtainable values: the Binary File Name, the Data to Find, and the Data to Replace. Both Data Values will need to be in the same format; either in hexadecimal (Property List Editor/Clover Configurator), or in base64 (plain text editor). The Data Value lengths MUST also be equal. A smaller replacement Data Value may be filled with zeroes. Fresco FL1009 USB 3.0 Device ID Patch by bu11etpr00f (BTW: This patch is great for people who have a Gigabyte X79-UD5 Motherboard in their hackintosh and want to resolve their USB issues with macOS El Capitan 10.11, Sierra 10.12, High Sierra 10.13, & Mojave 10.14. It enables the Fresco FL1009 USB 3.0 Controller as a Fresco FL1100 USB 3.0 Controller. Works Great! ) The following example shows a patch for AppleUSBXHCIPCI replacing the data <string>0x11001b73</string> with <string>0x10091b73</string>: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Fresco FL1009 USB 3.0 Device ID Patch by bu11etpr00f</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>PHN0cmluZz4weDExMDAxYjczPC9zdHJpbmc+</data> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <true/> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>PHN0cmluZz4weDEwMDkxYjczPC9zdHJpbmc+</data> </dict> <array> Note: the patch data is encoded in base64 due to the data type of the field. Unfortunately, Tables don't seem to be supported on this Forum, so I've put images of them in this post. I will also leave the text data below them if you wish to copy/paste it somewhere.

Viewed in Clover Configurator: Note: The config.plist uses a base64 value, while Clover Configurator shows you the TEXT (UTF-8) or HEX value. It is sometimes necessary to use a patch to modify a kext's Info.plist. In this case, the following Boolean Key needs to be added to the Patch's Dictionary Item: <dict> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <true/> </dict> Side note: Patches are applied in the kext cache. If you patch an Info.plist in order to enable the loading of a specific kext, which is not currently present in your cache, you will need to reboot twice: Once with the option NoCaches to allow FSInject to load the specific kext into the cache, and Then again for the cache to be patched successfully.

  17. G'day guys, I recently bought a Surface Book i5 256GB with dGPU, and I found that there's no tutorial about Hackintosh since it's released, so i am here to be the first (maybe) to try this out This guide is not being recommended by its author, as the final performance is usually janky and unstable, most fundamental functions of your Surface will not work in Hackintosh, please always consider the consequence of proceeding, you also risk losing your data, again, please proceed with caution ******謝絕轉載謝謝配合****** ******Please do not repost, thanks****** ******転載禁止です。ご協力をお願いします。******* This project is deprecated (and it was only meant for 10.11 - 10.12.3) due to hardware availability on my side, no support for future OSes will be provided by me personally and support on current OSes will be limited. Your contributions, testing and guides will be appreciated by the community. video is up at Disclaimer: everything is on yourself, please proceed with caution and care Works Keyboard & Trackpad (No Gestures)(Buggy, when you hold a key, pointer won't move), SD card reader, USB 3.0 ports, Sound PCIe SSD Intel HD 520 Graphics works perfect on 10.11.4 DP Video output now works(don't close the lid, it lead to big problems)(after closing the lead with external monitor, when plug in the external monitor, it no longer recognize the internal display, you must unplug the monitor and reboot) Long press power key brings up the power menu Brightness Lid Doesn't work NVidia dGPU Touch Screen (Alex's driver won't work since it's now on HID Camplg ports, which is not open source) Wireless (Wi-Fi & Bluetooth) Volume rocker Battery status What Works for 10.12 Everything for 10.11 :-) Bugs For 10.12.3 and below Graphics is janky and unstable. and does not work natively, driver patch is needed Graphics will not work on 10.12.4 as reported for the built-in display, please take notice and do not upgrade First Step: Installing a Virtual Machine You will need a VM in order to get the thumb drive ready, please install a VM or you can use a real Mac to do this, the installation is not very hard, but do need some times for downloads and other stuff. Download VMWare Workstation Pro 12.0 Trial Version Download VMWare Unlocker Download Python Runtime Modify Unlocker Bat file -- In the unlocker installer, there's a win-install.bat file that you can open by CMD, but don't open yet, we need to modify a path in the file, open the file using your favorite text editor, find unlocker.exe in the file, change it to unlocker.py The previous step is redundant Follow the instruction on unlocker readme file Go to a Apple Store, get a Install App from their computer and convert the BaseSytem.dmg to CDR, or you can just skip those steps to the making USB step Use the converted CDR as install media in VMware Installing OS X as normal Second Step: Prepare to install You need an actual Mac to make the install USB or using a VM, both methods are fine, I wouldn't say more about installing a VM on your devices, you can Google that yourself You'll need to download the 10.11.x installing App from this link For macOS 10.12 please go to this link to get the preview version You need to open Disk Utility. Select the USB Drive and format it as Mac OS X Extended (Journal-ed), Name it whatever you want, as long as you can remember the name. Now, open the terminal, enter the following text, this will cost you around 4 minutes on a USB 3.0 device and 30 minutes on a USB 2.0 device, go get yourself some drinks For 10.11 sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/PARTITION NAME --applicationpath "/Applicatons/Install OS X El Capitan.app" --nointeraction The previous method won't work on 10.12 anymore, you will get a USB that is not booting, use the guide below Download Clover from Clover Official Download Page Install Clover by choosing "Install UEFI Version only, install to EFI partition, Install Themes, Driver64UEFI(unselect CsmVideoDxe-64) After installing, you should see a Partition called EFI mounted, and it's your thumb drive (Copy the EFI folder from Installing OS X to the EFI Partition) only do this if it didn't do atomically DownloadSurfaceDriver.zip and follow the instruction in the ReadMe.txt to paste the files into your CLOVER folder ++++++++++Notice for 10.12 USB Creation++++++++++ The pervious way of making the 10.11 drive won't work anymore in 10.12, instead, after downloading the 10.12 install app, you'll need to follow the following steps Show hidden files by executing this command defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES Navigate to /Application/Install macOS Sierra/Contents/SharedSupport and mount InstallESD.dmg Open "Disk Utility", restore the USB drive with Basesystem.dmg (hidden) in the mounted DMG file. Copy /Packages in the mounted DMG file to the restored USB's /System/Installation. Delete the old link before proceeding to the copy. Copy basesystem.dmg and basesystem.chunklist to the root directory of your USB drive Third Step: Installing OS X 10.11 Now, we can start installing 10.11, you should plug in an external keyboard, mouse, and your thumb drive, after you finish the booting process, you should see the welcome page, choose the language you prefer and proceed the installation Go to Windows First, partition your drive for at least 50 GB if you want to keep using, because as I tried before, remapping disk after installing macOS or OS X is extremely HARD, don't try that unless it's necessary, you will risk the integrity of your data by doing that Choose Disk Utility, choose your installing partition and click erase, format as OS X Extended (Journal-ed), then, exit Disk Utility and proceed the installation process, you might need to proceed the same process twice to get the full install, so if you didn't saw your OS X drive, please choose install again. (The installation will automatically continue.) Or: Installing macOS 10.12 Please change ig-platform-id to 12345678 before installing the framebuffer kext. Things getting a little bit tricky when you're trying to install 10.12 on Surface Book. Since there's still a little bit of problems with the NVMe driver, you will likely get a error message says: unable to unmount volume for repair I am not sure if the error spreads largely, but, I experienced it every time I install the 10.12 The temporary workaround is that to use an external USB hard drive or a SD card, I don't recommend a USB thumb drive unless it's superfast. Install 10.12 as normal to the external hard drive apply all the combo updates to the external hard drive system Use the recovery environment comes with the Installer (not the hard drive) Open Disk Utilities and restore the whole USB hard drive to the macOS install drive You can apply combo or delta updates as normal, but do not apply big updates that requires a standalone app download, backup and reinstall instead Problems regarding 10.12 installing has been solved, please proceed as normal The Final Process: Make your experience better You don't have to patch the keyboard drivers for 10.12.1 and/or above For 10.12, please install the kexts in 10.12 "install" folder located in the driver pack Make the keyboard works (10.11 only) Navigate to InstallHD/System/Library/Extension Copy the IOUSBFamily Kext to your desktop or wherever you like Right click on it and choose show package content, go to /Contents/PlugIns Right click on IOUSBHIDDriver and choose show package content, go to /Contents Open Info.plist using software like: PlistEditor Pro, and xCode Navigate to IOKitPersonalities Copy Generic Keyboard and right click on IOKitPersonalities Select "Paste as a child" Expand Generic Keyboard 2 change the value of bInterfaceProtocol to 0 change the value of bInterfaceSubclass to 3 change USBCompatibilityMatch to YES (doesn't have this on 10.11) save the file and open Kext Utilities Drag and Drop the kext in to it, enter password and after it finished reboot, then you should have a working keyboard Install Clover to SSD To install clover to ssd, you need the CLOVER PKG installer and remeber to update as a new version releases, it might contains bug fixes. Install clover as normal, install to your HACKINTOSH INSTALL DRIVE Use UEFI Boot Version, Install theme, and Driver, unselect CsmVideoDxe PUT THE SURFACE BOOT DRIVER INTO THE DIRECTORY Use BOOTICE x64 Version under windows, mount EFI under windows, Select UEFI tab, add a new boot entry navigate to EFI:\EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi, name it clover bootloader (or whatever you like). Go to Surface UEFI, unselect Windows Boot Manager under Boot tab, select and drag CLOVER to the first position of the UEFI boot sequence, NOTICE: DO NOT DELETE "INTERNAL" selection in UEFI setup, or your Surface WILL NOT BOOT (won't happen on newer BIOS) By the way, according to the feedback, there has been some problems with the AppleHDA patch, please install AppleHDA298.kext to S/L/E directly using your kext installer instead of placing it under /CLOVER/kexts, also, please use sRGB as color profile to avoid any grahpics glitch in 10.11. _____________________________________________________________________ You'll need a Wi-Fi dongle to get online or you can use USB Sharing on Android and iOS, don't know whether network sharing on Ubuntu Touch, Windows Phone and Blackberry will work You'll also need a Bluetooth dongle to get BT working __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thanks to LonelyTV MeuPRodrigo maj1es2tic Pike and all of you

  21. Hi Everyone, it's been about 5 years since The HACKINBEAST (my prior hackintosh Dual CPU / Triple GPU PC build). Introducing The ULTRABEAST! It was a 2+ year project that was finally finished about 3 months ago. Unfortunately for whatever reason it has now stopped working. The initial install when Andrew Kern (RampageDev.com) and I used (El Capitan) worked fine. The only problem though was it would freeze every 2 to 3 hours and I'd have to retstart my system. It only happened when I used all 3 x 28" 4K monitors that are caused the freezing issue. When I ran one 28" 4K monitor it never froze, using El Captain, but when using 3 x 4K monitors together, it when the freezing issue happened every 2 to 3 hours. After several months of going back and forth figuring out what the issue was, Andrew felt it may be a possible memory leak in the 980 Ti GPU's. We had to wait for an Nvidia to supply an update. Andrew reached out me to let me know about the update (in April). We installed it and also updated to Sierra, the screen went black after seeing the Apple logo and stop working altogether. Andrew was tied up with work and couldn't get back to me until a week later, then emailed me a text that he got from someone saying: "I fixed the Nvidia problem, it was BIOS related, in the video op ROM. I had selected UEFI, thing is if you put it back to Legacy the GPU work and now I'm running on Nvidia drivers again." I went into my BIOS to try to find where my OpRoM was. It was located in my PCIe/PCI/PnP Config menu. This is what I saw: Launch Storage OpROM Policy [uEFI only] Launch Video OpROM Policy [uEFI only] and set them BOTH on Legacy. Launch Storage OpROM Policy [Legacy only] Launch Video OpROM Policy [Legacy only] Looking at it NOW (and I do mean now) that may have been my issue, as I probably should've only changed the Video OpROM and not the Storage OpROM, but didn't realize that until I just now saw this as I was writing it. In any case with many attempts to get this working properly Andrew hasn't responded to me yet. Until I find a resolve to this issue, I'm pretty much stuck with an $8500 system, but with simple case and fan cooling setup, you can build it yourself for around $2,500 to $4,000. As you can probably tell by the photos, quite a bit of time went into this build. This was the first PETG tubing build I ever did. I'm also wondering if maybe it's the GPU's that need to be updated to the 1080 TI's or Titan X (Maxwell) GPUs? I don't even know if the 980Ti's, 1080 Ti's or Titans X's can work together and in SLI mode. I've seen builds with them working (as you can find completed builds to purchase on eBay). It doesn't matter now as my Mobo was giving a "B2" (error) that won't allow me to go back into my BIOS to change anything. Supermicro's tech support (and it was quite a few guys I spoke with in that dept) said it could be a RAM module or issue with an external part (i.e., GPU, CPU), or it could be one of the module RAM or GPU slots not working anymore. I have since packed up my Mobo and shipped it to their repairs dept. I will be receiving my Mobo back within about 2 weeks. Here's my system set up: Motherboard : SuperMicro X9DAi-O RAM: 128GB (16 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 MHz PC3-10600R ECC (Uprgraded to Samsung 128GB DDR3-1600 ECC RAM that were tested for this particular Mobo) CPU: 2 x E5-2697 v2 Intel (Water Blocked) GPU: 2 x 980 Ti 6GB (Water Blocked) (Upgraded to 2 x Titan X Maxwell 12GB) PSU: EVGA 1600 P2 Monitors: 3 x Asus MG28UQ 28" 4K Thanks for taking the time to read this and please let me know if any of you have any thoughts about any of what I just shared. Hope you like the Geekbench as well as the Cinebench Scores. Now all I care about right now is that the machine works. Can't wait to get the Mobo back to test everything out. Here's a video link showing the ULTRABEAST, enjoy the vid and throw a like on it, and subscribe to my YouTube channel, thanks…
  22. Hi everyone, This is my first post here so I hope I respect all the rules of this holy land ! (Please don't slay the noob !) I need your wisdom to give me advice for the new money burning hackintosh I'm building. I already have one, but I never managed to get it stabble enough and it gave me many headaches. Also it wasn't nearly powerfull enough for a tue professional use. The new one will serve me for my work as a video and sound editor but also, cause work's not everything, to dual boot and game while thinking of slaying some random and disrespectfull diretor ! As I'm not much of a hardcore geek, the idea is to have a stable build that will last for quite a while, and be open for future adjustments or upgrades. I wish it to be as silent as possible and I really do not care about RGB stuff. I have searched a lot and seen many different builds but none who satisfid all my criteria. But I really want to find all the best parts possible and so I come for your help. For now, here are the parts I've selected : CPU : Intel I9 7900X 3.3GHz CPU Cooling System : Noctua NH-U12S MOBO : Gigabyte GA-X299 AORUS Gaming 7 Pro or Asus Prime X299-DELUXE RAM : SKILL F4–3200 mémoire 32gtzr (I'll add 32 more as soon as I'll have the money) System Drive High Sierra : Samsung 970 Pro NVMe SSD 512 Go System Drive Windows 10 : SSD Crucial 250go (Not for too long though !) PSUs : Corsair HX1200i 80 PLUS Platinum, 1200 Watt I haven't figure out the GPU nor the case yet... So please tell me what you thing cause there are so many models out there... I was thinking maybe a MSI GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X or the Radeon™ Pro WX 7100 Graphics which looks amazing for editing but not so great for hackintosh... Thanks a lot for your time and you help ! Raph.
