    usb 3.0s?

    HI, i've installed high sierra a while ago and never really used it that much but i got bored of w10 so i've decided to use it as my daily driver for a while and i noticed that usb 3.0 ports don't work with usb 3 devices and only with usb 2.0 devices(capped at the 480mb/s limit of usb 2.0), is there a way to get past that? i couldn't find it in this forum, i don't need the speed that much for right now(even tho i might since i shoot in raw and usb 2.0 is slow for file transfer of big photos or videos i take on holidays or on days off) but i'd like to at least be able to use the usb 3.0s with my usb 3 devices and hub. Hope that i write this post correctly, english is not my main language. ps i don't need because i'm on lan but does it exist a driver/kext for intel wifi/bluetooth combo integrated in my z87 mpower(centrino 2200) ? bluetooth works already.
  2. Hi community ! Is anybody successful with 10.13.x and multiple GPUs on a desktop hack ? My main rig (see in signature) HD4600 + GTX550Ti + GTX560 is working perfectly under 10.11.6 and 10.12.6. Very simple to install, Intel IGPU set to active and primary in bios, inject intel and igplatformid in bootloader (enoch or clover), no nividia injection, since Fermi GPUs are natively supported. Smbios set to iMac14.2 for my Haswell CPU, and to avoid AppleGraphicsDeviceControl devices unloading. But from 10.13.0 to 10.13.3, system boots fine until login screen where WindowServer crashes with a "no MTLDevice" error (MeTaL device I guess). I could workaround that error by unloading nvidia devices in AppleGraphicsDeviceControl, but that kind of defeats the purpose, since only the IntelHD4600 can then be used. 10.13.4 brings a little improvement, desktop can be reached, all 3 gpus active (AppleDisplay instances appear in IORegistryExplorer for Intel and Nvidias) but only Intel HDMI output shows desktop correctly, both nvidias (HDMI or DVI output) only show a black desktop where the mouse pointer can be moved normally. Displays can be arranged, orientation and resolution can be changed, as if everything was fine, but it is not. Console shows the following repeated messages : WindowServer (Skylight) : Unable to composite display surface due to null compositor. WindowServer (CoreDisplay) : [ERROR] - Attempting to get capabilities from capabilities with no devices Does anybody have an idea on how to avoid or workaround these errors ? Thanks ! O. Things I've tried: Bios Graphic Devices order changes (breaks everything unless IGPU is primary) nvidia injection in bootloader (fails in enoch, disables secondary nvidia GPU outputs in clover) Smbios changes and/or AppleDeviceControlPolicy plist edits (simply enables or disables nvidia outputs) nvidia official or web drivers (no changes at all, even though webdrivers are properly loaded ; requires nvram emulation with enoch) enoch or clover (no difference except clover boots a bit faster - than enoch with nvram - thanks to proper UEFI boot I guess) lilu intel and/or nvidia and/or coredisplay graphicsfixups (no visible changes but graphics devices names, and thus enables or disables AGPM) use binaries from Sierra 10.12.6 for CoreDisplay and/or Skylight frameworks (never reached desktop) NVIDIAeGPUSupport (no changes)
  3. This is a kext correcting certain issues at userspace level. At this moment it is only interesting for Ivy owners and newer. Homepage | Historical background It is likely reasonable to collect some stats with hardware reports (which ones worked ok, which ones failed). Please use the following format: CPU Model, GPU Model, IGPU Model (including ig-platform-id), OS X version. P. S. Read the FAQ before asking any questions.
  4. How to Install MacOSX 10.9 Mavericks on a MSI GS70 Laptop This guide will show you how to get a basic functioning install of 10.9 Mavericks on a GS70 - a thin, fast, gaming laptop by MSI (details here, hw specs below). Not all hardware is functioning, please check list below, and share if you find ways to get things working. Please keep posts focused on problems, helpful hints, and solutions. FYI, my machine is triple booting Linux Mint, Windows 8, and MacOSX 10.9. I mostly use MacOS to fix my friends' computers and for iOS development, not everyday use. I haven't taken the time to get sleep, mic input, etc. working properly. Hopefully some folks can use this as a base to get more things functional. Big thank you to RehabMan, rockinron_1, EMlyDinEsH, and the makers of Clover, Kext Wizard, DSDT Editor, and all the other great, necessary tools. Working Basic Install Trackpad (multi-touch) Keyboard (including some function keys and glowy keyboard) Sound (output speakers/headphones) USB Bluetooth Shutdown Integrated Intel Graphics Not Working Yet Internal wireless Ethernet Sound input Sleep NVidia accelerated graphics with optimus Needed Tools: A working MacOS installation Mavericks install dmg The latest Clover (version 2330 at time of writing): http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/files/Installer/ Kext Wizard: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/253395-kext-wizard-easy-to-use-kext-installer-and-more/ Clover Configurator: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/49-clover-configuratorconverter/ FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from Vanilla Guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-install-guide/ mach_kernel from RehabMan:https://www.google.fr/#q=mach_kernel+from+RehabMan Patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze: https://www.google.fr/search?q=Patched+AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext+from+Mieze&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:fr:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=6e61UrigAoyG8gOex4DAAQ Elan Touchpad drivers, ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext from EMlyDinEsH:http://http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ An 8gb+ USB key A usb mouse and keyboard (possibly optional...) VoodooHDA kext (not sure if this is necessary) Step 1: Create the USB Installer (taken mostly from Vanilla Install guide) In a previous MacOSX install, use DiskUtility to Partition a USB disk with 1 HFS+ Partition, make sure GUID partion map is selected in the options. Mount your Mavericks dmg image Go to the mounted image, right click on "Mavericks.app" and choose "Show Contents" Go to "Contents/Shared Support" and mount InstallESD.dmg Mount BaseSystem.dmg by typing the following in terminal: open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg In DiskUtility, go to the "OS X Base System", Restore it to your USB disk. Navigate to /System/Installation on your USB drive. Delete the “Packages” link, then copy the Packages folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. Copy the following kext's to /System/Library/Extensions on your USB stick. FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext files from the Vanilla Guide The patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze (optional, untested) You can try copying the Elan Touchpad drivers as well, read Step 5 "Touchpad and Keyboard" section below and delete approriate kexts, this could save you from needing a USB keyboard/mouse during installation Install Clover to the usb drive, customize the install with the following options: Bootloader->Install boot0af in MBR CloverEFI->64-bits SATA Themes->Choose one (Black_Green_Moody is nice) Drivers64->XhciDxe-64 Drivers64UEFI->OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Copy the mach_kernel file from RehabMan to the root of the USB drive Step 2: Installing OS X Boot into the installer, I use reFind bootloader and the USB disk just shows up when it's plugged in, you should be able to select the boot order in your bios to boot from the USB key if you don't have another bootloader installed Select "Options". Do the following: under the DSDTfixmask menu, disable "fix display" under the Graphics menu, select "Inject EDID" (inject Intel should already be selected) Now boot into the installer (return to the menu with all the OS icons and select the USB key. It'll read "Boot Mac OSX HFS+" or something) If you did not install the Elan kexts, you will have to use a USB keyboard and mouse for the install. Install OS X (use a HFS+ partition on a drive partitioned with a GUID partition map, MacOSX is a good name for the partition) Boot back into the installer like you just did early (yes select all those options) Select "Utilities" from the top and then Terminal You need to copy all those kext's you installed on the USB drive to your new installation partition. Type in the following lines, replacing MacOSX with the actual name of the partition you installed to (hint: after entering the first one, press the up arrow to save yourself some typing): cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ Likewise, copy the patched mach_kernel from your USB drive to the install, replacing the original- cp –R /mach_kernel /Volumes/MacOSX/ Now type "reboot" and hit enter Step 3: Intial Reboot Reboot again into the installer, choosing the same options as before BUT boot from the hard-drive, not the USB drive As MacOSX 10.9 pops up, do a little dance of joy. Install Clover onto your hard-drive, choosing the same options as before. Install Clover Configurator and run it. Do the following: Go to File->Open on the top bar and choose /EFI/Clover/config.plist (this is your current Clover configuration) In the ACPI tab, deselect FixDisplay. Make sure the DSDT name is DSDT.aml Under Graphics, select Inject EDID Choose File->Save (now you no longer have to select those options at boot time) Step 4: Touchpad and Keyboard Download EMlyDinEsH's Elan drivers (latest is 2.8.3 at time of writing): http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ In finder, go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete the following if you can find them: ApplePS2Controller, VoodooPS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, ApplePS2Keyboard and anything that says Elan Touchpad. Using Kext Wizard, install ApplePS2Controller and ApplePS2ElanTouchpad kexts Reboot and enjoy. My keyboard glows,using my windows settings. Also, note: the touchpad is a little jerky... I think this is because of the graphics driver, but it's functional. Step 5: Ext4 (for linux peeps) Buy or try the trial of Paragon Extfs... I couldn't get anything else to read my partitions. They overcharge, buy hey, it works... Step 6: Audio (output) A bit complicated. You need to patch your DSDT, install an updated HDA driver, and maybe install VoodooHDA. I had VoodooHDA installed before I did the rest and I just left it installed... I am not sure if it is required or makes things worse (maybe input works without it?) I dunno. I would try without it first and then install it after if you need it. Download a Java runtime for 10.9 (google JavaForOSX2013-05.dmg) Download DSDT Editor (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/223205-dsdt-editor-and-patcher/ ) Download RehabMan's audio 12 layout patch: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/blob/master/audio_HDEF-layout12.txt Edit the patch and remove all the instances of "\n" Run DSDT editor and Choose File->Extract DSDT from the top bar, this will get your DSDT from your BIOS Choose Patch->Open from the top bar, and select the audio 12 patch Select Patch Now choose File->Save DSL from the top bar and save this to your Desktop as DSDT.aml Now copy this to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin Now download and use Kext Wizard to install the AppleHDA.kext from RehabMan found here: (reference: here) Restart and cheer! If it doesn't work, or you want more controls, install VoodooHDA. Make sure PCM is turned up in the VoodooHDA control panel thing. If you need mic input, etc. working, the DSDT patch is probably where you need to be digging. Post results please. Step 7: USB Wireless You will need to either install a wireless card that works with MacOS (advanced, warranty-voiding, numerous guides found elsewhere on this forum) or else buy yourself a compatible usb wireless adapter (easy, cheap). I bought this one for 8$ and it works perfectly with the drivers on the CD it came with: GMYLE Wireless 11n USB Adapter Step 8: Final notes If the computer goes to sleep it will plant, so go into the power settings and tell it not to go to sleep! (if you fix this, please post here) No networking... buy yourself a Mavericks compatible usb network adapter (will let you know when I get one working) Give credit and donations to the fine people that made these tools and patches, I just assembled them to make it work on this dreamy computer. I will try to post a zip file with some of these kexts, etc. later. If you are having trouble, in the clover boot options, add "-v" (without quotes) to the boot options. This will give a more verbose output and may indicate the issue If you are not using Clover, the busratio for this computer is 24. Adding "busratio=24" to the boot-up options (without quotes) might help for other loaders (Clover autodetects this) If you get some extra hardware working, please let us know! MSI GS70 Hardware Specifications: CPU: i7-4700HQ (2.4GHz, Haswell) Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Accelerated Graphics: NVidia GTX 765M Integrated Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600 (8086:0416) Audio: Creative X-Fi.

  9. Hi insanelymac, I'm using a Dell All in one Inspiron 5348. It has a Pentium dual core G3240 Haswell clocked at 3.07 ghz in Mac. I've successfully booted and installed Mac Os X el capitan on an external hdd using a fake cpuid (0x0306E0) its ivybride. But my problem is the drivers. The only thing I could remotely do is wifi. I've installed the kexts for my wifi card. What I need is to install intel hd graphics (desktop) kexts and audio drivers (alc668) I've tried doing every method. Except for Ddst because I don't understand it whatsoever.Also found this thing called xcpm and was wondering if I can just spoof the graphics ids or something like that. Hopefully you guys can help me and thanks!

Continue to FIXED Boot ORDER Priorities→ Check if CD/DVD is 1st Boot (Note that your CD drive will not appear unless there is an UEFI enabled CD inside; Scroll down to Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities to set the boot sequence of the available hard disks (Note that if at least one hard disk is not configured with EFI bootloader then 'Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities' menu will not show up). Go to CSM Configuration; Launch CSM = 'Disabled'; This enables the bootloader menu screen to load with native HD as specified by your monitor. NOTE: If you are multi-booting with Windows 7, it is MANDATORY that Launch CSM = 'Enabled' (Launch PXE OpROM policy = 'Do not launch', Launch Storage OpROM policy = 'UEFI only', Other PCI device ROM priority = 'UEFI OpROM'); The lack of these settings can cause the following error when starting up your Windows 7 boot drive: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000d Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data It will also prevent any non-UEFI boot disks from appearing in the UEFI BIOS (e.g. CD/DVD, Windows 7 USB Keys, etc.) c. Go to ADVANCED→ Power Management→ ACPI Sleep State is S3 only (Suspend to RAM). d. Go to ADVANCED→ Graphics Configuration→ Disable internal graphics. e. Go to ADVANCED→ CPU Configuration; there is no option for Vt-d, so disable Intel Virtualization Technology (during installation). f. Go to ADVANCED→ USB Configuration→ Disable XHCI Mode. g. [OPTIONAL] Go to MEMORY; Under Memory Multiplier Configuration, set Performance Memory Profiles to XMP Profile 1. h. [OPTIONAL] Go to ADVANCED→ H/W Monitor Configuration→ Set all fan speeds to 50%. Save and Reset. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF HIGH SIERRA 10.13 1. Clover and the macOS installer are placed on separate partitions on the USB stick. This guide will use 'diskutil list' in Terminal instead of Disk Utility to format the USB with GPT partitioning for Clover UEFI support. 2. You must determine its disk identifier before you can partition the USB. Plug the USB stick into a Mac (or Hackintosh), run Terminal and type 'diskutil list'. The following screenshot will serve as a reference: As you can see the the USB stick’s identifier is /dev/disk4. 3. Type the following entry into Terminal to format the USB stick (two partitions, via GPT): diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk4 1 GPT HFS+J "OS X" R During the process the following occurred: /dev/disk4 GPT partitioning initiated by default EFI was automatically created remainder "OS X", HFS+J is partitioned 4. It resulted in the following screenshot: Close Terminal 5. We need to download and install the latest version of Clover r4220+ (here) on the USB stick. a. Run the pkg, "Change Install Location" by selecting "OS X" (partition name) as the target of the install. Use the following settings below: Make sure that it shows "Installation Complete." NOTE: When installing to HDD select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and/or "Install all RC scripts on all other boot volumes" and "Install Clover Preference Pane". 6. You must copy your kexts to the EFI/ Clover folder. You can use EFI Mounter v1.2.3 when necessary to mount the EFI partition, just use "diskutil list" first to ensure you chose the right one for the USB stick. a. Remove EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, 10.12 leaving just 'Other'. b. Copy the required kexts Slice’s FakeSMC.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (for PS/2 keyboard), and your ethernet kext (Intel I219-V) IntelMausiEthernet-V2.3.0 or AppleIntelE1000e v3.3.3 to the following directory: /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other. NOTE: If you are having trouble getting Ethernet to work you can also try copying IONetworkingFamily.kext from S/L/E to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other with your networking kext. 7. Use a text editor/plist editor like PlistEdit Pro to modify your config.plist manually. We must apply the following mandatory patches: a. You must add line ACPI/SSDT/DropOem=false in config.plist in order to boot without "Still waiting for root device" error. Add this <dict> entry to EFI/CLOVER/config.plist: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>DropOEM_DSM</key> <false/> </dict> b. Use Clover’s built-in kernel patch to automatically apply the code to patch the (new) kernel after each OS X update to prevent reboot loop: <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KernelPm</key> <true/> </dict> <key>Memory</key> <dict> c. AppleAHCIPort Clover patch disables orange drive icons. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data> RXh0ZXJuYWw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> SW50ZXJuYWw= </data> </dict> </array> d. SMBIOS. With the config file still opened in your text/plist editor, scroll down to SMBIOS section to add the following SMBIOS system definition: <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>iMac14,2</string> <key>Trust</key> <false/> </dict> NOTE: Macmini6,2, iMac13,2 and iMac13,1 support speedstep.You can also do this using Clover Configurator: In the SMBIOS section, click the magic wand to select a SMBIOS relevant to your hardware (e.g. iMac14,2) – and close the screen and File/Save. e. GUI. Here you indicate the theme you want to use that you installed by entering the title in the string. I chose to use "random" as shown below: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>DoubleClick</key> <integer>500</integer> <key>Enabled</key> <true/> <key>Mirror</key> <false/> <key>Speed</key> <integer>8</integer> </dict> <key>Scan</key> <true/> <key>Theme</key> <string>random</string> </dict> f. Boot Flag. It is necessary to use "-v" to monitor if any problems arise. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v</string> </dict> g. NVIDIA graphics cards especially 'Maxwell' & 'Pascal' currently lack support natively in macOS. To correct this problem, it requires System Parameter/NvidiaWeb entry. It must be disabled during installation by adding this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <false/> </dict> h. SIP. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) which restricts users from modifying system folders/files, and as a result it locks down system folders and files against hacks and root attacks, making the system safer. SIP must be partially disabled at the least, to install anything (i.e., kexts) into protected system folders, but as of High Sierra beta, the old string "0x3" has resulted in errors later on in boot. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x3FF</string> </dict> i. Audio Fix. This Haswell board comes with a Realtek ALC898 audio chip. In order to use AppleALC/CloverALC (discussed further in this guide), you must add the following patch in the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>t1-10.9-10.11-AppleHDA/Realtek ALC898</string> <key>Find</key> <data> ixnUEQ== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleHDA</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> mQjsEA== </data> </dict> </array> j. Drop ACPI MATS/DMAR tables. Drop the DMAR table if VT-d isn’t disabled in UEFI settings. MATS has been known to prevent some from booting into 10.13 so it can be dropped as well: <key>ACPI</key> <key>DropTables</key> <array> <dict> <key>Signature</key> <string>MATS</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Signature</key> <string>DMAR</string> </dict> </array> NOTE: Without dropping the tables the following error may occur: Attempting System Restart...MACH Reboot 8. Preparing OS X partition. Download macOS v10.13.0 High Sierra [17A365] [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install macOS High Sierra" will be in /Applications. a. Go to → Show Package Contents → Contents → SharedSupport. b. You will now see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear in the folder. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... NOTE: The version of Disk Utility found in El Capitan+ has been stripped down of its most essential features to proceed with the following instructions. Your next best option is to use a pre-modified version of the old Disk Utility. After downloading it, extract and copy it to the Desktop and type the following line in Terminal to take ownership, enabling the app to run: sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Desktop/Disk\ Utility.app c. Open Disk Utility. Select and highlight the volume "OS X Base System", click "Restore" at the top-right, drag the volume into "Source" field, and drag the USB [OS X] partition (you already created) to the "Destination" field where you will restore the image: click the "Restore" button then "Erase"... d. After the process is complete, you'll now have (2) "OS X Base System" present in Finder. Eject the image "BaseSystem.dmg" and close Disk Utility. e. Open "SharedSupport" folder and copy BaseSystem.chunklist, BaseSystem.dmg, AppleDiagnostics.chunklist, and AppleDiagnostics.dmg to the volume root. f. Remove the "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from the volume root and replace it with the full version (>5GB) in the Applications folder where it downloaded. NOTE: Skipping this step causes the following error when booting the installation: The path /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg appears to be missing or damaged g. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17+ to extract "kernel" from " SharedSupport /InstallESD/Packages/Core.pkg [/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. h. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install High Sierra on the hard disk of choice. i. Highlight and select the USB installer from the bootloader menu screen to begin the installation. j. Once the installer has finished, it will automatically restart the system. Boot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed High Sierra to continue the rest of the installation. • STEP 3: macOS 10.13 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the macOS Welcome screen. a. Select your country then click "right arrow" to go to the next screen. b. Select "My computer does not connect to the Internet." c. Select "Don’t transfer any information now." d. Agree to "Terms and Conditions." e. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. f. On "Express Set Up" access "Customize Settings." g. Do not "Enable Location Services on this Mac." h. Set your time zone, do not "Share Mac Analytics with Apple", and do not "Enable Siri". i. Wait a moment for the macOS desktop to load. j. When prompted to backup any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: macOS 10.13 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. Install macOS 10.13 Supplemental and reboot. 2. macOS High Sierra doesn’t allow unsigned apps to run that did not come from the App Store or identified developer. You can re-enable this function by running the following in Terminal: sudo spctl --master-disable Go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and disable GateKeeper to allow installation of software by unidentified developers. 3. Mount the EFI partition of the USB stick with EFI Mounter v1.2.3 and copy the 'EFI' folder to the EFI partition of High Sierra boot disk. 4. Install Clover v2.4k on the High Sierra install HDD partition you plan to boot from. In addition to the settings configured earlier, select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and "Install Clover Preference Pane" when installing to the HDD. Installing RC scripts enables nvram variables required for iCloud and other services. It processes logs that are located in /Library/Logs/CloverEFI. You can also type bdmesg > Desktop/boot.txt in Terminal to get them manually. 5. Edit the config.plist from your boot disk in EFI/CLOVER/ by adding the following <dict> entries: a. Method for Enabling NVIDIA Web Drivers. Boot flag nvda_drv=1 doesn't work in config.plist to enable Web Drivers. The setting under System Parameter in Clover called "NvidiaWeb" is what's used to fulfill this instead. <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary. b. Hide UEFI partitions. To hide internal UEFI (i.e., "Boot Windows from Recovery", "Boot Windows from EFI") you have to use Scan/Legacy=false: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Scan</key> <dict> <key>Legacy</key> <false/> </dict> c. Designate name of boot menu entries (Renaming Mac/Windows). In the Clover bootloader menu you will notice all EFI Windows partitions labeled "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI [or SYSTEM]". The Windows partition is called EFI but there's also a Mac partition called EFI which is hidden by default in the Clover boot menu so it's a nonfactor. The volume names are what Clover shows by default. In order to change what the Clover boot menu shows your volume name to be you will have to specify its details under GUI/Custom/Entries section in your config.plist. There are 3 <key> tags necessary to edit in this section: Volume, FullTitle, and Type. You can refer to my personal settings below for help. E.g., in my config.plist, my macOS volume is called "HISIERRA" because that's what I named the partition I installed macOS on. It can also be seen as a bootloader screen entry as "Boot Mac OS X from XXXXXXXX" where XXXXXXXX is the volume name. "FullTitle" is the name you want the entry to say, i.e.: macOS 10.13 High Sierra. "Type" is where you indicate what type of OS it is, i.e.: OSX (or Windows). Tags such as "Hidden" and "Disabled" are self-explanatory, while the "NoCaches" tag designates whether you want to boot without caches. NOTE: Adding "InjectKexts" causes infinite loading on the Apple logo screen: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. NOTE: Having more than one Windows installation will cause multiple "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI" items to appear In the Clover bootloader menu. To change its volume name that Clover shows it requires identifying its individual GUID and adding it as a 'string' under the Volume <key> tag. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list A list of drives will populate along with sublist of its partition scheme. Now look for the partition generally listed under your Windows disk as "EFI - NO NAME". E.g., my disk is "0" and the EFI partition is "2". I would type the following into terminal: diskutil info disk0s2 [replace 0 and 2 according to your drive and partition number] It will then printout all the info specific to that partition. All you need to use is the "Disk / Partition UUID", NOT the Volume UUID. <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Custom</key> <dict> <key>Entries</key> <array> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>A7649550-D460-49CF-9531-829D58F123DC</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 8</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>6CEDEB66-8DE8-420C-BA76-2F0CF3E84250</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 10</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>HISIERRA</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>macOS 10.13 High Sierra</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>InjectKexts</key> <false/> <key>NoCaches</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>OSX</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> </array> </dict> d. USB patch. High Sierra 10.13 requires the port limit to be raised in order for USB 3.0 ports to be recognized. This process involves installing FakePCIID.kext as well. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change 15 port limit to 20 in XHCI kext (9-series) 10.12</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////FQ==</data> </dict> </array> Be sure to copy FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other. NOTE: Set 'XHCI Mode' to Smart Auto in the BIOS to enable USB 3.0. 6. Remove Recovery partition. Deleting and merging a partition with 'diskutil' from the command line is the most precise method to remove the partition since it targets the recovery disk directly and merges it with the full High Sierra partition. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list This will print out your drives partition scheme and look something like this: Look for "Recovery HD" and see which identifier it uses. In this screenshot it’s disk2s4. To remove that partition we use the following command (you can also use the volume name): diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ Blank /dev/disk2s4 The partition will be erased. You’ll now have a blank partition sitting around, so you’ll want to merge that with your other High Sierra partition: diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ HISIERRA disk2s3 disk2s4 This will merge the two partitions, with disk2s3 absorbing the space from disk2s4 and expanding, it causes data loss so don’t expect this to preserve anything. 7. NVIDIA graphics cards 'Maxwell'+ currently lack native support in macOS 10.13. a. Install NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext and latest version of Lilu; Temporarily enable SIP to update drivers to avoid error and Web Driver installation failure. NOTE: Skipping this step may cause a black screen and/or the following error when booting the installation: IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, nov 0, sm 0x0 flashing at the top of the screen when restarting after installing NVIDIA Web Drivers. b. Download and install NVIDIA Web Driver 378.10.10.10.15.117 / NVIDIA Web Driver 378.10.10.10.15.120 to enable NVIDIA Graphics Cards because they won't work OOB without them. NOTE: Remember to go to the NVIDIA Driver Manager menu bar at the top, change the settings to use Web drivers. Changes will take effect after restart. 8. Reboot using the USB installer and choose the High Sierra install drive. 9. Download CUDA 9.0.197 / CUDA 9.0.214 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.13 support and install. 10. [OPTION 1] Install AppleALC to enable native audio by injecting the layout id supported for ALC898 through dynamic patching without modifying any kexts. Audio will no longer be affected after each macOS update and SIP can remain enabled. More details here. NOTE: AppleHDA must be native, original and unpatched. a. Mount EFI partition and add the following entry under Devices/Audio in the config.plist to inject working layout id 1 (or 2 or 3). <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> b. Download the latest version of AppleALC (v1.2.0) and copy it to CLOVER/kexts/Other. NOTE: Rebuild kext cache if you have removed a modded AppleHDA to replace it with a native one by using Kext Utility or 'force rebuild cache' in Terminal: sudo –s sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions 10. [OPTION 2] Install the following patch associated with Realtek ALC898 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda): a. Mount EFI partition, verify "Disable SIP" entry CsrActiveConfig=0x3FF is in config.plist. b. Download audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip and extract "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command". c. No edits made to any native AppleHDA.kext file, 2-4 files added to Resources folder. NOTE: There may be noticeable pops before starting playback which is caused by macOS putting the audio codec to sleep. Disable AFGLowPowerState in config.plist with following <dict> entry: <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> </dict> <key>AFGLowPowerState</key> <false/> </dict> If popping is still exists after using the method above, try using antipop. NOTE: There may be noticeable distortion after around 2 minutes of audio playback. Update to the latest version of Clover and add UseARTFrequency=false entry in the config.plist: <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>UseARTFrequency</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> 11. Creating a DSDT (Refer to MaLd0n) 12. Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download Pike's ssdtPRGen.sh script which should auto-copy into your home directory, 'Volumes/Users/<username>' folder. Open Terminal and type the following: curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh b. Next, set the execute/search bits: chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh c. Run ssdtPRGen.sh script for first time without any arguments and let it download all the data that you need: ./ssdtPRGen.sh d. The Haswell.cfg should have already downloaded. e. Once finished you will have the ssdt.aml on the ~/library/ssdtPRGen/. Move it to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. NOTE: If you come across issues try the following: ○ Use Terminal to ensure Haswell.cfg is in the 'Data' folder by typing: open ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data ○ You can remove any previously generated and downloaded script file by typing: sudo rm -R ~/Library/ssdtPRGen ○ You can rerun another freshly downloaded ssdtPRGen.sh script with your processor type: ./ssdtPRGen.sh ○ For additional help see also: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -help 14. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Mount the EFI partition to copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.23.1417: Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. NO COMPATIBLE VERSION FOR 10.13 I KNOW OF! 15. Install iStat Pro 4.9, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. • OPTIONAL: Fixing Time Sync issue with macOS/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7, 8 & 10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to macOS, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time. NOTE: Avoid changing the time in macOS if you are running a multi-boot system. You only have to modify the time in the BIOS and in Windows followed by enabling the setting to sync the clock with online time.
  11. Have removed the kernel patch, and am trying clover. See this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/299786-advice-sought—black-screen-after-boot/#entry2044867 Now I KP at startup. "Unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI"" I haven’t installed anything yet; I’m just trying to boot into the USB installation drive. To get it to boot I had to change mach_kernel using this perl patch discussed here: If I set GraphicsEnabler=No (default), I simply get a black screen after I see it do its normal verbose boot (the screen goes black right after [iOBluetoothHCIController]. If I set GraphicsEnabler=Yes, then it simply hangs on the same [iOBluetoothHCIController]. Has anyone run into this problem? I'd really appreciate some sort of solution. If no one has a solution, then any possible ways I could troubleshoot this would also be appreciated. A concise summary below: Issue: Black screen after boot. I can see everything on the boot screen, but nothing after. Hardware: EVGA Classified Z97 2x EVGA reference 780Ti i7-4790K Things I have tried: GraphicsEnabler=No (black screen remains) GraphicsEnabler=Yes (Hangs on [iOBluetoothHCIController]) PCIRootUID=0,1 DSDT=no -f, -F, -x
  12. What is the best Mini-ITX motherboard for my i5-4460 (replaceable Broadcom chip, if it's possible m.2)? I'm planning to make a Mini-ITX hackintosh inside a Streacom F1C. Is the F1C Evo taller than the F1C and is there any way i can fit a GPU inside it (PCIe raiser etc.)? Thanks in advance.
  13. NOTE: This guide mixes static patch with hotpatch. It will be edited to make it works only with static patch soon. There's zero issues with this guide but it seems better not to mix patching methods (thanks, RehabMan) Hello, everybody! After two years of using my Cintiq Companion 2 with Yosemite thanks to mactabletman’s guide and reading, testing a lot and trying to understand what I was doing, I’m in a good path to share my experiences and help you to install macOS Sierra in your Companion 2 keeping your Windows installation. There are a few things that need to be solved, like sleep/wake (Cintiq goes to sleep, led blinks but display doesn’t wake up, maybe framebuffer, IOKit or PWR related) or audio using AppleHDA for codec ALC286 instead of VoodooHDA (I will add notes in each section about all this). WE HAVE GOOD NEWS, CINTIQ MODE WORKS!! (see notes at the bottom) No need to say that I’m taking zero responsibilities of what happened if you follow this guide. We are all grown people and before taking any step you better read all the info you can find about what you are trying to accomplish. This guide is done for the Cintiq Companion 2 i5-4258U 128GB model (DTHW1310L) with the last BIOS version (MB01) but can be useful as a start for other CPU/graphic models. I’m assuming you updated or reinstalled and have Windows 10 running but same procedure is required for Windows 8/8.1. WORKING: All except wake from sleep using Power Button (wake well if previously connected in Cintiq mode), PCI Realtek SD Card Reader, volume buttons and HDMI audio. So first, things you are going to need: - 2 usb drives (16GB and 32GB minimum), one for create an installer and another to install Sierra into. - 1 usb keyboard and 1 usb mouse since Clover has no support for touch devices and touch doesn't work natively in Sierra as it does in Yosemite. - 1 usb drive for Clonezilla (*optional but recommended) - 1 external hard drive to backup your whole internal SSD using Clonezilla (*optional but recommended) - An original Apple computer to create installer. - A BCM94352Z WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 card to replace default Intel wireless card. You can check how to open your device here. * In order to create a Clonezilla Live USB, I recommend to use Yumi. You can create a multiboot installer for your Windows version, Ubuntu, Wifislax… very useful stuff. CREATING THE INSTALLER… Ok, you did a backup of your data, so let’s create a usb installer for macOS Sierra: - Download macOS Sierra from App Store, this will download the last update 10.12.1 - Open Disk Utility and format your 16GB usb to HFS+J, GUID partition and rename it to install_osx. - Copy and paste these commands in Terminal, one by one: sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/install_osx --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app" --nointeraction sudo diskutil rename "Install macOS Sierra" install_osx INSTALLING CLOVER IN USB INSTALLER… Now open the Clover installer and select your Install macOS Sierra USB, click on “Customize” and use this configuration: - Check Install for UEFI booting only, Install Clover in the ESP is also automatically selected - Check embebbed theme. - Check OsxAptioFixDrv-64 from Drivers64UEFI - Check PartitionDxe-64 from Drivers64UEFI - Check EmuVariableUefi-64 from Drivers64UEFI* - Check Install RC scripts on target volume from Drivers64UEFI* - Click Install. After install Clover, a EFI partiton is mounted. Go to EFI/CLOVER, delete that config.plist and put my config_install.plist there. Rename it to config.plist. - Go to EFI/CLOVER/Drivers64UEFI and delete VboxHfs-64.efi. Put there HFSPlus.efi. - Go to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/ and leave only "10.12" and “Other” folders. Put FakeSMC.kext inside both of them. Now your installer USB is ready. *NOTES ABOUT NVRAM EmuVariableUefi-64 and Install RC scripts on target volume might be needed to make NVRAM works in a dual boot configuration since both systems read and write there (I guess). Or maybe our device has not NVRAM hardware, I don’t know. Anyway, I’ve tested it. To test NVRAM, type this in Terminal: sudo nvram MyVar=TestValue Check/show NVRAM: nvram -p You should see the following entry among others: MyVar=TestValue Reboot, check NVRAM again and if above entry persists, your NVRAM is working. Mine didn’t installing only OsxAptioFixDrv-64, so I reinstalled Clover with EmuVariableUefi-64 and Install RC scripts on target volume. BIOS CONFIGURATION… Check your BIOS. Press power button while holding volume up button to enter BIOS. - CPU Configuration: Boot performance mode: Turbo performance; EIST: enabled; Turbo Mode: enabled; Performance/Watt: Performance; Configurable TDP: TDP Nominal. - Intel Smart Connect Technology: disabled. - CSM configuration: CSM Support: enabled; Network: Do not launch; Video: Legacy. - Chipset/System Agent (SA) Configuration/Graphics Configuration: Aperture Size: 256MB; DVMT Pre-Allocated: 128MB; DVMT Total Gfx Mem: MAX. - BOOT: Fast Boot: disabled; Boot mode select: dual; all fixed boot order priorities disabled except for UEFI USB KEY. - Save & Exit. BOOTING INSTALLER… Now, to boot into Clover you just need to reboot with your installer usb plugged, so your motherboard recognize the UEFI entry in that drive. Click on power icon in Windows, and while pressing SHIFT, click on reset to go to Windows Boot Manager. Click on "Use a device" and next on "UEFI: SanDisk, Partiton 1" (if you are using SanDisk drive, if not it will be diferent but easily to discover). Click enter in your keyboard to boot "Install macOS Sierra". You will se the verbose log in order to fix any boot issue (you shouldn't need to if you follow this guide). Open Disk Utility and format your 32GB drive to HFS+J, GUID partition and give it a name, for example, SierraHD. Close Disk Utility and Select Install macOS Sierra and install it to your SierraHD drive. Wait until it reboots after creating the Recovery partition. You will need to boot again into Clover and boot this time from your new boot entry in your SierraHD drive to finish installation. INSTALLING CLOVER TO SIERRAHD USB… After install macOS Sierra you might want to install Clover to your SierraHD drive so you don’t need both usb drives to be plugged in order to boot. Follow same steps than before in INSTALLING CLOVER IN USB INSTALLER… Ok, now you’re able to boot into your macOS Sierra but you don’t have CPU PM, IGPU PM, backlight control, battery level… Some of them will be fixed installing kexts, other with DSDT patches or renames, some with Clover… ACPI FILES - DSDT & SSDT ACPI Tables Extraction using Clover Press F4 in Clover boot menu and OEM ACPI tables will be placed in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin. Copy only those files named DSDT.aml and SSDT-X.aml (where X is any number) to your desktop in a new folder called ACPI that we will use to disassemble with iASL. Disassembling ACPI files Download iASL to your Downloads directory, type this in Terminal: cd ~/Downloads git clone https://github.com/RehabMan/Intel-iasl.git iasl.git cd iasl.git make sudo make install Install MaciASL.app to your Applications directory and run this command in Terminal to update iASL: sudo cp /usr/bin/iasl /Applications/MaciASL.app/Contents/MacOS/iasl61 Now we are going to disassemble the files. Type in Terminal: cd Desktop cd ACPI iasl -da -dl *.aml You can also try to disassemble them using External declarations in a text file called refs.txt. This may help to fix some unresolved externals (symbols not defined in any file). Copy the following text and create a refs.txt into ACPI folder in your Desktop: External(MDBG, MethodObj, 1) External(_GPE.MMTB, MethodObj, 0) External(_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECWT, MethodObj, 2) External(_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECRD, MethodObj, 1) External(_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGPO, MethodObj, 2) External(_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD02._BCM, MethodObj, 1) External(_SB.PCI0.SAT0.SDSM, MethodObj, 4) External(_SB.PCI0.SAT1.SDSM, MethodObj, 4) External(_GPE.VHOV, MethodObj, 3) Type in Terminal: iasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt *.aml Using refs.txt or not, this will create .dsl files that we will use to patch. Open them using MaciASL and click “Compile” to check for errors. Main mission here is to have them compile without errors (warnings and optimizations are ok). We only need DSDT and all non dynamic SSDT files. Clover shows dynamic SSDT files adding "x" (SSDT-4x.aml for example). Use dynamic files only to disassemble. NOTE: never open .aml files with MaciASL and compile, if you ever get lost among DSDT and SSDT files, extract and disassemble them again. POST-INSTALLATION… Ok, we can boot our Sierra installation, we have our ACPI files disassembled and with no errors, not patched yet, so it’s time to start fixing things. First thing to fix must be CPU Power Management. For that we use ssdtPRGen.sh. In my CC2_PACK.zip there is a SSDT for my CPU (i5-4258U). If you have other CPU, you need to generate a proper one (you will need internet access so install now FakePCIID and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi and copy all WiFi related Clover patches from config_OK.plist to your config.plist). Open Terminal and type this command to download ssdtPRGen: curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/master/ssdtPRGen.sh Now change the file mode (+x) with: chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh Default SSDT generation: sudo ~/ssdtPRGen.sh Type n and n one more time. Open Finder and go to /Library/ssdtPRGen/. You will see a SSDT.aml, this is our CPU Power Management SSDT. Copy it to your EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. You will see if PM is well implemented if X86PlatformPligin is loaded under CPU0@0 in IOReg (use IORegistryExplorer to check it. You can also use AppleIntelInfo.kext) Open SSDT-HACK.dsl with MaciASL, save it as SSDT_HACK.aml and put it into EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. You can check SSDT-HACK.dsl to see what I did there (Basically, emulate Windows (_OSI to XOSI), injecting IGPU properties and ig-platform, disabling EHCI, injecting XHC properties, fixing GPRW to avoid instant wake and making EXEL and ESEL do nothing). Second thing should be IGPU Power Management. For that GFX0 needs to be renamed to IGPU in our DSDT and all SSDT files that contain any GFX0 reference. We will rename it in DSDT using Clover patch and manually find/replace in SSDT files (in our case, SSDT-7 has some GFX0 code). Third, we are going to install some kexts to enable Bluetooth, WiFi (if you replaced default wireless card with BCM94352Z), all USB ports and backlight control. Just open Kext Wizard (we will always use it to install kext files), click “Install” and look for: - FakeSMC.kext - FakePCIID.kext - FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext - IntelBacklight.kext - XHCInjectorCC2.kext - BrcmPatchRAM2.kext - BrcFirmwareRepo.kext Any time you install any kext file, you must rebuild your cache and fix permissions. You can do it with KextWizard but it is recommended to use Terminal (see TIPS AND EXTRAS) Now that you have WiFi enabled, OS X probably put it at en1 while Bluetooth PAN is at en0. To reorder them just do the following: - Go to System Preferences > Network and delete all interfaces (WiFi and Bluetooth PAN). If you are asked about bluetooth reappearing again, click no. - In Finder go to ~/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration and delete NetworkInterfaces.plist. - Reboot, go to System Preferences > Network and add your WiFi interface again. This will reorder your interfaces, leaving WiFi as en0 and letting you to access Apple services as Mac App Store. You still needing to create a good SMBIOS profile, with a serial, etc. in order to activate everything: FaceTime, iMessage, Mac App Store… You can follow these guides: How to enable iMessage Clover: iMessage/Facetime Fix for Yosemite With all this you will have everything working except for battery status and audio/sound. Now it's a good time to install Wacom drivers. Battery status needs ACPIBatteryManager.kext to be installed and a patched DSDT. I’ve created a patch that you can use with MaciASL and your DSDT (you extracted and disassembled before, remember?), just click “Patch” and look for Battery CC2 Patch.txt, apply and save. NOTE: Recent tests with RehabMan probes my patch matches Dell XPS 18, so that will work too. Use any of them. IMPORTANT: Until now we were booting with ACPI/SSDT/DropOEM=false because we weren't using patched OEM files. Now we are going to use a DSDT file, so we must also provide all patched SSDT files, set DropOEM=true and set SorterOrder (same order than OEM files, making SSDT.aml the first and SSDT-HACK.aml the last, so it will be: SSDT.aml, SSDT-0.aml, SSDT-1.aml, SSDT-2.aml, SSDT-3.aml, SSDT-7.aml, SSDT-HACK.aml). You can do this with PlistEdit Pro or Xcode by yourself (check Clover Wiki for how-to). Anyway, I've prepared config_OK.plist with all these changes and more patches. Paste it in EFI/CLOVER/ and rename it to config.plist to continue with post-installation. I would like to avoid adding patched ACPI files transforming my DSDT patch to the new hotpach method (thanks Rehabman!), adding code to SSDT-HACK and adding DSDT/patches to Clover if necessary but is waaaay out of my league. Any help achieving this will be appreciated. NOTE: DSDT only needs Battery CC2 Patch for now. SSDT files only need names to be balanced, so any rename we are doing with Clover in ACPI/DSDT/Patches need to be do it as well in all SSDT (GFX0 to IGPU; B0D3 to HDAU…) If you did it all well, you should have battery status working. Audio/Sound can be achieved installing VoodooHDA. You will be able to use the internal microphone and speakers, so Siri will work. Airplay audio works too. HDMI needs work. A better choice would be to patch our codec and use AppleHDA, HDMI audio seem to work better this way and might help to fix sleep/wake. I’ve attached a dump from my Realtek ALC286 and my Intel Haswell HDMI if somebody want to help with this matter. CLONING TO INTERNAL DRIVE Now that you have an almost fully working hackintosh, you probably want to clone it to your internal SSD. For that, just follow these steps: - Boot into Windows, and shrink your C: partition using Disk Management. - Format new volume to FAT32 and give it a name (you can use MacDrive to format to HFS+J) - Boot using your USB installer, open Disk Utility and format your new internal partition to HFS+J (if you didn’t do it before using MacDrive). If you are prompted with an error, try it again. If error persists, try next step. - Clone your current installation selecting as source your SierraHD drive and destination your new internal partition. After clone, you still needing to install Clover in your internal EFI partition, so boot again your Sierra installation using your USB and repeat steps in INSTALLING CLOVER IN USB INSTALLER… You also need to place proper config.plist and your ACPI patched files, SSDT.aml and SSDT-HACK.aml in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. Note that your internal EFI partition could have no name, mine in fact shows as NO NAME in Finder In order to boot your internal Clover installation, you might like to create an entry in your Windows Boot Manager. I use EasyUEFI for that. Just click on the Create a new entry icon, select Linux or other OS, and select the path to EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.EFI. Give entry a name, for example macOS Sierra NOTES: I still having some doubts about this guide. For example: - Our graphics device 8086,0A2E is natively recognized but doesn’t show a name in DPCIManager, I don’t know if can be an issue. - PCI Realtek Card Reader 10EC,5229 has no support. - USB may need work to make wake from Power Button work properly. I’ve created an injector and disable EHC with SSDT-HACK.aml and it’s under 15 port limit. I did the same with a EHC injector and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext or USBInjectAll.kext and a SSDT-UIAC.aml. Same result, ports work, wake with Power Button doesn’t, some of them are lost when reboot after try to wake up from sleep (using Power Button) - There are some errors with methods in EC0 that probably need work (GBTT, SMB0._STA) - Good news!! Cintiq Mode works Just plug your cable to your PC or Mac, put your Companion to sleep and it should wake as a plain Cintiq and recognized by your PC or Mac. When you unplug your video cable, you Companion come back with everything working. Enjoy - I did another test and wake quite good but with black screen: go to sleep (no cable video plugged), plug video cable, this will make screen wake but remain black, unplug video cable, use screen sharing to access and change resolution or detect displays in SysPref to push the signal to your internal display. TIPS AND EXTRAS - If you want to install any software, you must enable the lost option inside Security and Privacy. Type this in Terminal: sudo spctl —master-disable - If you want to enable HiDPi resolutions, just copy DisplayVendorID-5c23 folder into ~/System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides and install RDM. - If you need to rebuild caches, run this in Terminal: sudo rm -r /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / - Sometimes boot into safe mode is needed. Just add -x to boot flags in Clover or push spacebar in Clover boot menu (this second option is not working for me right now, I don’t know why). - To enable playing a power chime sound effect when battery charged is plugged, type this in Terminal: defaults write com.apple.PowerChime ChimeOnAllHardware -bool true; open /System/Library/CoreServices/PowerChime.app & - If you want to try the new TouchBar present in new MacBook Pro, you can give it a try! Go here and follow instructions CONCLUSIONS AND THOUGHTS The Cintiq Companion maybe is not a famous tablet because its mainly client target are professional artists than doesn’t have too much time to play with this hackintosh stuff, but it works very well in my opinion, better than Surface devices. Geekbench results is same than MacBook Pro with same CPU and LuxMark gives a result of more than 1600 for what I checked. The only thing that it would need to be perfect, in my opinion, is to sleep and wake properly. We can do that just plugin the video cable and entering Cintiq Mode, unplug and wake but it would be nice to wake it with the Power Button. For those who could help, here you have some clues you may find helpful to solve it. Sleep works, display goes off, fans go off and led starts blinking. But when wake (only with power button) display goes back but remains black for seconds and suddenly go off, fans keep running, led keep on without blinking, but can’t access using VNC or screen sharing. If you enable the power chime sound effect, you will hear it if you unplug and plug your battery charger. The only way to come back is to force a restart by holding power button and next time you boot some devices are missing (WiFi and some USB). Restarting one more time makes all devices work again. Since I have no idea of binary patching, programming or ACPI concepts, it was very hard for me to get all this together. I’m probably doing something wrong or there’s a better way to make things work, so if you have any idea or suggestion, don’t hesitate to comment or ask. I'm doing this for two reasons, to share what I learned and to keep all the information together in one post. And this is everything, folks! I hope this help you to install macOS Sierra in your Companion 2. Now that new model is out (but far away from my budget) you can find some affordable second hand units. DOWNLOAD MY CC2_PACK It contains: ACPI folder, before and after patches (for those who want to check). Battery CC2 Patch. Kexts folder. Official BIOS folder, in case you didn’t update your Companion 2 or disabled CSM support and can’t see BIOS menu. SSDT Files folder, containing SSDT-HACK.dsl and SSDT.aml for i5-4258U PM. APPS folder: Clover Configurator 2, DPCIManager, PlistEdit Pro, Kext Wizard, MaciASL, IORegistryExplorer. EXTRAS folder: Brightness app (slider control in menu bar), Intel Power Gadget, iStat Pro widget, AppleIntelInfo.kext (for checking CPU PM). HiDPi: DisplayVendorID-5c23 folder and RDM-2.2.pkg codec_dump_ALC286.txt and codec_dump_HDMI.text for someone to may help patching AppleHDA. I want to give a HUGE thanks to all the people that are involved in making this possible, from developers to testers (Piker, Rehabman, the-darkvoid, Slice, Allan... I don't know, I'm still learning who you are, people, you are a lot so don't be offended if I didn't mention you, please ). And sorry if there's some grammar mistakes or something, it's my first guide in english.
  14. I recently acquired a Samsung U28E510 monitor (4K UHD) for my hackintosh and had a hard time finding the information I needed to get it working with my integrated Intel HD 4600 graphics (desktop H97 chipset with i7-4790s) at full resolution. This post will share how I got it working. As a new hackintosher, a lot of the information I found was confusing because it assumed I knew how the pieces fit together, I was using Sierra 10.12.6 (iMac15,1 SMBIOS) and already had the HD 4600 working with full acceleration on my 1080p monitor. When I first plugged in the new monitor, I could get at most 2560x1440 @ 60Hz from MacOS using the DisplayPort cable that came with the monitor. Using a Linux Live USB, I could get 3840x2160 @ 60Hz so I knew the hardware was working and capable. My old config used the kexts Lilu, Shiki and IntelGraphicsFixup via Clover injection. I was injecting the ig-platform-id 0x0d220003, and on the desktop "<Apple Icon> -> About This Mac" showed that my graphics were allocated 1536MB. I added CoreDisplayFixup.kext to avoid the pixel clock limit in the CoreDisplay framework. Since that required a newer version of Lilu, I downloaded updated source for Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup and Shiki and rebuilt all of those along with CoreDisplayFixup. The hardest part for me to understand, was why MacOS wouldn't offer me the option to go above 1440p resolution. I could get to 2160p with SwitchResX, but it wouldn't stick across reboots and I was seeing a phantom display on my system when I used that app. I spent a couple of days trying various things, and upgraded to High Sierra 10.13.1 along the way. I eventually stumbled across a post at RampageDev, which explained how the magical ig-platform-id value is used -- which ended up being the key to my problem! I don't know if the bits in 0x0d220003 are important, but for my purposes that value is used as a key to a table in AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext which is used to initialize the HD 4600. This includes attributes such as buffer sizes and memory allocations which are needed for large, 4k displays. The link helped me understand the contents and format of that table, which in turn helped me understand the problem. By patching the kext via Clover, I could have MacOS configure the graphics hardware so that it would work as I wanted. The patch itself is added to config.plist -> KernelAndKextPatches -> KextsToPatch (it's in an <array>): <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Framebuffer for 4K display</string> <key>Find</key> <data> AwAiDQADAwMAAAACAAAwAQAAAAAAAABgmRQ= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferAzul</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> AwAiDQADAwMAAAAEAAAgAgAAAAAAAACAmRQ= </data> </dict> I won't go into the grisly details here; if you're technical and want to understand, you can figure it out from the patched values. Basically, I'm increasing three values to accommodate the larger display: The RAM allocation The framebuffer memory size The VRAM allocation Once I enabled this patch in Clover and added CoreDisplayFixup.kext, I was able to boot into glorious 4K UHD. I also see the retina resolutions in the display settings. It's possible that I did not need to change all three fields. I changed them all on the first try, and things seem to be working well. I would be happy to update this post if an expert can tell me a better way to do it. Note that this does allocate 2GB of RAM for the Intel graphics, but that's fine with me since I have 16GB and plan to upgrade to 32GB anyway. I'll probably end up getting a discrete GPU when I upgrade the RAM, but this patch helps me stay productive while I save for the upgrade. I suspect that this approach could be packaged into a Lilu plugin for those that prefer to do their patches from kexts rather than the Clover config. Similarly, some of the Lilu plugins I'm using could probably be implemented via Clover patches. At this point, I'm just happy to have something that works.

  16. Hi All, I am currently running on OS X 10.13.1 (High Sierra) and everything works perfectly, besides sleep... I've scoured the internet for an answer but can't figure out how to force my computer to stay asleep (seriously, it's like an infant that's consumed too much sugar). Keeping the computer on 24/7 is wasting so much energy. Here are my specifications: CPU: I7-4790k (Haswell) Memory: 32gb DDR3 GPU: Nvidia 1080ti Gigabyte Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI Network Card: TP-Link Archer T9E (PCI-E Wireless AC) Cooler: Corsair H110i GTX (Corsair Link Connected to USB Header) HDD: 4 SSD's Other Accessories: Oculus Rift, C920 Webcam, Yeti USB Microphone Here are the Kexts/items I've installed into the computer: Clover (UEFI Boot Mode), Drivers (VoodooHDA V2. 9.0d10), 3rd Party SATA, FakeSMC, FakeSMC Plugins, 3rd Party USB 3.0, 7/8/9 Series USB Support, NVIDIA Web Drivers Boot Flag Here is the output of "pmset -g assertions": https://imgur.com/a/Zo4kG Here is what I've done so far: Changes Standby, Autopoweroff, StandbyDelay values Went to BIOS, disabled Wake on Lan Option Changed the darkwake settings to darkwake = no and darkwake = 8,9.. Cried myself to sleep out of frustration At the moment, I turned the hibernatemode to 25 and that seems to shut the computer down automatically. The downside to this is, I need to wait for the computer to completely boot up each time it goes into Hibernate..
  17. Hello again community !!! A few days ago I did a topic in the spanish forum, in which I explained that I did not have audio and video, but I make this new issue because the audio could solve it, but I can not run my VGA which as the title says is a GTX 970 4GB. I told them that I followed RampageDev's guide, using their DMGs. When choosing the config.plist of the first step of the guide Post Installation with DMG Haswell (my processor is an i5 4690k) I choose the one in the Standard folder, which according to the guide of Rampage, is for those who do not use the Web Nvidia Drivers After that I continue with the guide process and install everything correctly, audio, network etc. After completing the Haswell DMG Post Installation Guide, reboot, and everything is fine. Now, my problem is which guide I have to choose to install my VGA, which of these three guides: I saw each of them, and option 1 is not for my VGA because it is up to version 10.8.2 of OSX, option 2 could be for my 970, but the version of drives is up to 10.12.4 v2 and besides I Had chosen the standard method that would not have the Nvidia Web Drivers. And option 3 asks me for the SSDT / DSDT injection, I follow the steps of the guide, Ioreg download installed it, OSX start and in Clover I choose the Inject Nvidia option and uncheck the Use Nvidia Web Driver option, Already on the desktop open Ioreg, and when I go to look for the specific option that shows the guide (PCI1@2), I can not find this line: As an observation, there are also the above lines, NPEA@16, NPEB@0, NPEC@5, NPED@5.2, NPEE@5.4. As well neither GFX0@0, AGPM, gpu-control. I thank the time to read and still more if they can help me !!!

Continue to FIXED Boot ORDER Priorities→ Check if CD/DVD is 1st Boot (Note that your CD drive will not appear unless there is an UEFI enabled CD inside; Scroll down to Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities to set the boot sequence of the available hard disks (Note that if at least one hard disk is not configured with EFI bootloader then 'Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities' menu will not show up). Go to CSM Configuration; Launch CSM = 'Disabled'; This enables the bootloader menu screen to load with native HD as specified by your monitor. NOTE: If you are multi-booting with Windows 7, it is MANDATORY that Launch CSM = 'Enabled' (Launch PXE OpROM policy = 'Do not launch', Launch Storage OpROM policy = 'UEFI only', Other PCI device ROM priority = 'UEFI OpROM'); The lack of these settings can cause the following error when starting up your Windows 7 boot drive: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000d Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data It will also prevent any non-UEFI boot disks from appearing in the UEFI BIOS (e.g. CD/DVD, Windows 7 USB Keys, etc.) c. Go to ADVANCED→ Power Management→ ACPI Sleep State is S3 only (Suspend to RAM). d. Go to ADVANCED→ Graphics Configuration→ Disable internal graphics. e. Go to ADVANCED→ CPU Configuration; there is no option for Vt-d, so disable Intel Virtualization Technology (during installation). f. Go to ADVANCED→ USB Configuration→ Disable XHCI Mode. g. [OPTIONAL] Go to MEMORY; Under Memory Multiplier Configuration, set Performance Memory Profiles to XMP Profile 1. h. [OPTIONAL] Go to ADVANCED→ H/W Monitor Configuration→ Set all fan speeds to 50%. Save and Reset. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF SIERRA 10.12 1. Clover and the macOS installer are placed on separate partitions on the USB stick. This guide will use 'diskutil list' in Terminal instead of Disk Utility to format the USB with GPT partitioning for Clover UEFI support. 2. You must determine its disk identifier before you can partition the USB. Plug the USB stick into a Mac (or Hackintosh), run Terminal and type 'diskutil list'. The following screenshot will serve as a reference: As you can see the the USB stick’s identifier is /dev/disk4. 3. Type the following entry into Terminal to format the USB stick (two partitions, via GPT): diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk4 1 GPT HFS+J "OS X" R During the process the following occurred: /dev/disk4 GPT partitioning initiated by default EFI was automatically created remainder "OS X", HFS+J is partitioned 4. It resulted in the following screenshot: Close Terminal 5. We need to download and install the latest version of Clover (here) on the USB stick. a. Run the pkg, "Change Install Location" by selecting "OS X" (partition name) as the target of the install. Use the following settings below: Make sure that it shows "Installation Complete." NOTE: When installing to HDD select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and/or "Install all RC scripts on all other boot volumes" and "Install Clover Preference Pane". 6. You must copy your kexts to the EFI/ Clover folder. You can use EFI Mounter v1.2.3 when necessary to mount the EFI partition, just use "diskutil list" first to ensure you chose the right one for the USB stick. a. Remove EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 leaving just 'Other'. Create a folder titled '10.12'. b. Copy the required kexts FakeSMC.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (for PS/2 keyboard), and your ethernet kext (Intel I219-V) IntelMausiEthernet-V2.2.0 or AppleIntelE1000e v3.3.3 to the following directory: /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. NOTE: If you are having trouble getting Ethernet to work you can also try copying IONetworkingFamily.kext from S/L/E to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12 with your networking kext. 7. Use a text editor/plist editor like PlistEdit Pro to modify your config.plist manually. We must apply the following mandatory patches: a. You must add line ACPI/SSDT/DropOem=false in config.plist in order to boot without "Still waiting for root device" error. Add this <dict> entry to EFI/CLOVER/config.plist: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>DropOEM_DSM</key> <false/> </dict> b. Use Clover’s built-in kernel patch to automatically apply the code to patch the (new) kernel after each OS X update to prevent reboot loop: <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KernelPm</key> <true/> </dict> <key>Memory</key> <dict> c. AppleAHCIPort Clover patch disables orange drive icons. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data> RXh0ZXJuYWw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> SW50ZXJuYWw= </data> </dict> </array> d. SMBIOS. With the config file still opened in your text/plist editor, scroll down to SMBIOS section to add the following SMBIOS system definition: <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>iMac14,2</string> <key>Trust</key> <false/> </dict> NOTE: Macmini6,2, iMac13,2 and iMac13,1 support speedstep.You can also do this using Clover Configurator: In the SMBIOS section, click the magic wand to select a SMBIOS relevant to your hardware (e.g. iMac14,2) – and close the screen and File/Save. e. GUI. Here you indicate the theme you want to use that you installed by entering the title in the string. I chose to use "random" as shown below: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>DoubleClick</key> <integer>500</integer> <key>Enabled</key> <true/> <key>Mirror</key> <false/> <key>Speed</key> <integer>8</integer> </dict> <key>Scan</key> <true/> <key>Theme</key> <string>random</string> </dict> f. Boot Flag. It is necessary to use "-v" to monitor if any problems arise. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v</string> </dict> g. NVIDIA graphics cards especially 'Maxwell' currently lack support natively in macOS. To correct this problem, it requires System Parameter/NvidiaWeb entry. It must be disabled during installation by adding this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <false/> </dict> h. SIP. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) (reference sources 1, 2, & 3) since 10.11 which restricts users from modifying system folders/files, and as a result it locks down system folders and files against hacks and root attacks, making the system safer. However, SIP must be disabled in order to install anything (i.e., kexts) into protected system folders. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x3</string> </dict> i. Audio Fix. This Haswell board comes with a Realtek ALC898 audio chip. In order to use AppleALC/CloverALC (discussed further in this guide), you must add the following patch in the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>t1-10.9-10.11-AppleHDA/Realtek ALC898</string> <key>Find</key> <data> ixnUEQ== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleHDA</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> mQjsEA== </data> </dict> </array> 8. Preparing OS X partition. Download macOS v10.12.0 Sierra [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" will be in /Applications. a. Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" → Show Package Contents → Contents → ShareSupport → Double click to mount "InstallESD.dmg". b. Once "OS X Install ESD" appears, use ShowHiddenFiles to show hidden files. c. Now you will see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... NOTE: The version of Disk Utility found in El Capitan has been stripped down of its most essential features to proceed with the following instructions. Your next best option is to use a pre-modified version of the old Disk Utility. After downloading it, extract and copy it to the Desktop and type the following line in Terminal to take ownership, enabling the app to run: sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Desktop/Disk\ Utility.app d. Open Disk Utility. Select and highlight the volume "OS X Base System", click "Restore" at the top-right, drag the volume into "Source" field, and drag the USB [OS X] partition (you already created) to the "Destination" field where you will restore the image: click the "Restore" button then "Erase"... e. After the process is complete, you'll now have (2) "OS X Base System" present in Finder. Eject the image "BaseSystem.dmg" and close Disk Utility. f. On the remaining volume "OS X Base System" (USB stick), go to System/Installation and delete Packages symlink. g. Open "OS X Install ESD" in a new Finder window, and copy the Packages folder to System/Installation folder inside "OS X Base System". h. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist, BaseSystem.dmg, AppleDiagnostics.chunklist, and AppleDiagnostics.dmg from "OS X Install ESD" and copy it to the volume root. i. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17+ to extract "kernel" from "OS X Install ESD/Packages/Essential.pkg[/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. j. Use ShowHiddenFiles to hide the hidden files, and quit the application. k. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install Sierra on the hard disk of choice. l. Highlight the USB installer from the bootloader menu screen and type kernel boot flag nv_disable=1 to avoid a blank screen (for Maxwell+ GPU's), resulting in 'No Display' signal. m. Once the installer is finished, it will automatically restart the system. Boot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed Sierra. • STEP 3: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the macOS Welcome screen. a. Select your country then click "right arrow" to go to the next screen. b. Select "My computer does not connect to the Internet." c. Select "Don’t transfer any information now." d. Do not "Enable Location Services on this Mac" e. Agree to "Terms and Conditions." f. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. g. Confirm "Diagnostics & Usage" h. Wait a moment for the macOS desktop to load. i. When prompted to back up any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. macOS Sierra no longer allows unsigned apps to run that did not come the App Store or identified developer. You can re-enable this function by running the following in Terminal: sudo spctl --master-disable Go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and disable GateKeeper to allow installation of software by unidentified developers. 2. Mount the EFI partition of the USB stick with EFI Mounter v1.2.3 and copy the 'EFI' folder to the EFI partition of Sierra boot disk. 3. Install Clover v2.3k on the Sierra install HDD partition you plan to boot from. In addition to the settings configured earlier, select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and "Install Clover Preference Pane" when installing to the HDD. Installing RC scripts enables nvram variables required for iCloud and other services. It processes logs that are located in /Library/Logs/CloverEFI. You can also type bdmesg > Desktop/boot.txt in Terminal to get them manually. 4. Edit the config.plist from your boot disk in EFI/CLOVER/ by adding the following <dict> entries: a. New Method for Enabling NVIDIA Web Drivers. Boot flag nvda_drv=1 no longer works in config.plist to enable Web Drivers. A new setting under System Parameter in Clover called "NvidiaWeb" has been updated to fulfill this instead. <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary. b. Hide UEFI partitions. To hide internal UEFI (i.e., "Boot Windows from Recovery", "Boot Windows from EFI") you have to use Scan/Legacy=false: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Scan</key> <dict> <key>Legacy</key> <false/> </dict> c. Designate name of boot menu entries (Renaming Mac/Windows). In the Clover bootloader menu you will notice all EFI Windows partitions labeled "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI [or SYSTEM]". The Windows partition is called EFI but there's also a Mac partition called EFI which is hidden by default in the Clover boot menu so it's a nonfactor. The volume names are what Clover shows by default. In order to change what the Clover boot menu shows your volume name to be you will have to specify its details under GUI/Custom/Entries section in your config.plist. There are 3 <key> tags necessary to edit in this section: Volume, FullTitle, and Type. You can refer to my personal settings below for help. E.g., in my config.plist, my macOS volume is called "SIERRA" because that's what I named the partition I installed macOS on. It can also be seen as a bootloader screen entry as "Boot Mac OS X from XXXXXXXX" where XXXXXXXX is the volume name. "FullTitle" is the name you want the entry to say, i.e.: macOS 10.12 Sierra. "Type" is where you indicate what type of OS it is, i.e.: OSX (or Windows). Tags such as "Hidden" and "Disabled" are self-explanatory, while the "NoCaches" tag designates whether you want to boot without caches. NOTE: Adding "InjectKexts" causes infinite loading on the Apple logo screen: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. NOTE: Having more than one Windows installation will cause multiple "Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI" items to appear In the Clover bootloader menu. To change its volume name that Clover shows it requires identifying its individual GUID and adding it as a 'string' under the Volume <key> tag. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list A list of drives will populate along with sublist of its partition scheme. Now look for the partition generally listed under your Windows disk as "EFI - NO NAME". E.g., my disk is "0" and the EFI partition is "2". I would type the following into terminal: diskutil info disk0s2 [replace 0 and 2 according to your drive and partition number] It will then printout all the info specific to that partition. All you need to use is the "Disk / Partition UUID", NOT the Volume UUID. <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Custom</key> <dict> <key>Entries</key> <array> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>A7649550-D460-49CF-9531-829D58F123DC</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 8</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>EFI</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>Windows 10</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Volume</key> <string>SIERRA</string> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>macOS 10.12 Sierra</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>InjectKexts</key> <false/> <key>NoCaches</key> <false/> <key>Type</key> <string>OSX</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> </array> </dict> d. USB patch. Sierra 10.12 requires the port limit to be raised in order for USB 3.0 ports to be recognized. This process involves installing FakePCIID.kext as well. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change 15 port limit to 20 in XHCI kext (9-series) 10.12</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////FQ==</data> </dict> </array> Be sure to copy FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. NOTE: Set 'XHCI Mode' to Smart Auto in the BIOS to enable USB 3.0. 5. Remove Recovery partition. Deleting and merging a partition with 'diskutil' from the command line is the most precise method to remove the partition since it targets the recovery disk directly and merges it with the full Sierra partition. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list This will print out your drives partition scheme and look something like this: Look for "Recovery HD" and see which identifier it uses. In this screenshot it’s disk2s4. To remove that partition we use the following command (you can also use the volume name): diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ Blank /dev/disk2s4 The partition will be erased. You’ll now have a blank partition sitting around, so you’ll want to merge that with your other Sierra partition: diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ SIERRA disk2s3 disk2s4 This will merge the two partitions, with disk2s3 absorbing the space from disk2s4 and expanding, it causes data loss so don’t expect this to preserve anything. 6. NVIDIA graphics cards 'Maxwell'+ currently lack native support in macOS 10.12 so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 kernel flag. a. Download and install NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.05f01 to enable NVIDIA Graphics Cards because they won't work OOB without them. NOTE: Remember to go to the NVIDIA Driver Manager menu bar at the top, change the settings to use Web drivers. Changes will take effect after restart. 7. Reboot using the USB installer and choose the Sierra install drive. 8. Download CUDA 7.5.30 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.12 support and install. 9. [OPTION 1] Install AppleALC to enable native audio by injecting the layout id supported for ALC898 through dynamic patching without modifying any kexts. Audio will no longer be affected after each macOS update and SIP can remain enabled. More details here. NOTE: AppleHDA must be native, original and unpatched. a. Mount EFI partition and add the following entry under Devices/Audio in the config.plist to inject working layout id 1 (or 2 or 3). <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> b. Download the latest version of AppleALC (v1.0.18) and copy it to CLOVER/kexts/10.12. NOTE: Rebuild kext cache if you have removed a modded AppleHDA to replace it with a native one by using Kext Utility or 'force rebuild cache' in Terminal: sudo –s sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions 10. [OPTION 2] Install the following patch associated with Realtek ALC898 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda): a. Mount EFI partition, verify "Disable SIP" entry CsrActiveConfig=0x3 is in config.plist. b. Download audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip and extract "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command". c. No edits made to any native AppleHDA.kext file, 2-4 files added to Resources folder. NOTE: There may be noticeable pops before starting playback which is caused by OS X putting the audio codec to sleep. Disable AFGLowPowerState in config.plist with following <dict> entry: <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> </dict> <key>AFGLowPowerState</key> <false/> </dict> If popping is still exists after using the method above, try using antipop. NOTE: There may be noticeable distortion after around 2 minutes of audio playback. Update to the latest version of Clover and add UseARTFrequency=false entry in the config.plist: <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>UseARTFrequency</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> 11. Create a DSDT??? (More to come later) 12. [OPTION 1] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download Pike's ssdtPRGen.sh script which should auto-copy into your home directory, 'Volumes/Users/<username>' folder. Open Terminal and type the following: curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh b. Next, set the execute/search bits: chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh c. Run ssdtPRGen.sh script for first time without any arguments and let it download all the data that you need: ./ssdtPRGen.sh d. The Haswell.cfg should have already downloaded. e. Once finished you will have the ssdt.aml on the ~/library/ssdtPRGen/. Move it to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. NOTE: If you come across issues try the following: ○ Use Terminal to ensure Haswell.cfg is in the 'Data' folder by typing: open ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data ○ You can remove any previously generated and downloaded script file by typing: sudo rm -R ~/Library/ssdtPRGen ○ You can rerun another freshly downloaded ssdtPRGen.sh script with your processor type: ./ssdtPRGen.sh ○ For additional help see also: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -help 13. [OPTION 2] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download the Pike’s script v14.1 (modified for i-core processors) and put it on your desktop. Use it only for the PC it is running from. The script reads some information specific about your CPU and its number of cores. b. Open Terminal and type "sudo" then leave a space and drag the script file into the Terminal window then leave a space and type in the Turbo Speed (Maximum Turbo Frequency) for your processor and then press enter. e.g., Intel Core i7-4770K type code: sudo /Users/"YourUsername"/Desktop/ssdtPRGen.sh -TURBO 3500 Type your password when prompted and press Enter. c. Ignore the following "Error: Unknown processor model ..." since the CPU is unsupported. d. A decompiled file called SSDT.aml will generate in a hidden folder "tmp". Type "open /tmp" (no quotations) to reveal its location. e. Mount EFI using EFI Mounter v1.2.3 and place SSDT.aml into /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ folder. 14. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Mount the EFI partition to copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12 folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.23.1417 Binaries (with FakeSMC): Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. 15. Install iStat Pro 4.92 r2, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. • STEP 5: Updating to 10.12.2 1. Download and install macOS Sierra 10.12.2 Combo Update and reboot. 2.

Remove any trace of GPUSensors.kext or it will cause "System uptime in nanoseconds…" kernel panic if you plan to update HWSensors 6.25.1426 Binaries (with FakeSMC). b. System Parameter/NvidiaWeb can be set to "false" since the motherboard has native working hardware NVRAM. 6. Update to the latest version of FakePCIID & FakePCIID_XHCIMux. 7. Update to the latest version of AppleALC v1.1.1 accompanied with Lilu.kext [for OPTION 1]. 8. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. • OPTIONAL: Fixing Time Sync issue with macOS/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7, 8 & 10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to macOS, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time. NOTE: Avoid changing the time in macOS if you are running a multi-boot system. You only have to modify the time in the BIOS and in Windows followed by enabling the setting to sync the clock with online time. WORKING-config.plist-for-Z97.zip

  21. Hello, guys! I was messing around with my DSDT, asking for help here and there, trying to solve the last thing to make my Cintiq Companion 2 a perfect hack and provide a perfect guide for it. I don't know where more I can ask, so I hope somebody with more knowledge than me about ACPI and many more could possibly had some time to help this fella debug some stuff. My system: Cintiq Companion 2 DTHW1310L (Clover) i5-4258U, H8x/P8x Intel Iris 5100, 2560x1440 (QHD) My problem is related to wake from sleep using power button. Everything else works very well. My system enters sleep well, led blinks as expected. From here, there are two ways to wake it: Option 1.- Using PWRB (Power Button): it wakes, backlight with black screen (seems to try to connect or push signal to display), ten seconds and display go off, no backlight. Fans keep running, system is available in SSH but not in screen sharing. USB seems not work after sleep since connecting a usb keyboard and built-in buttons doesn't make anything. Option 2.- Connecting the "Wacom link cable"*: it wakes, backlight with black screen, if you wait about 20 or 30 second, display comes back. It's the only way I have to wake my system properly (Wacom link cable doesn't need to be connected to another computer, just connecting the 24-pin connector to my Companion make it wake). * Wacom link cable is a special cable with one 24-pin connector in one side to attach to Companion 2 and an HDMI and an USB cables in the other for a host computer. When connected, if Cintiq Companion 2 goes to sleep, hardware is detected by host computer as a standalone Cintiq 13HD and a USB HUB, so you can use it as an aditional display with Wacom features with future or more powerful systems. This hardware function is called Cintiq Mode. Things I've tried: I'm trying to use ACPIDebug.kext (thanks to RehabMan) in order to try to debug if my device properly wakes or somewhere in ACPI it stopped (please, forgive if I'm say things wrong, english is not my native language and I don't have any coder or programming skills or background). But more tracing code is needed for what I've been told, but don't know how to do it. Some guidance here will be really appreciated. I can see logs in Console.app if Option 2 is choosen, but using PWRB makes impossible to do that. Black screen as I said, so I need to force a shutdown. I don't know if there's a way to record logs in a file before put system to sleep, so I will be able to check them after a forced reboot. FYI, I've tried to use all ig-platform-id I could find in AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext with different DVMT-prealloc values in BIOS and proper Clover patches, including those "enable display after wake" patches you can find in RehabMan repo. I've played with framebuffer sizes, cursor bytes, delay, connector port types... No solution so far. Curious things: - If I boot in safe mode, wake from sleep using PWRB works (WTF). - My display seems to have more than one EDID (I used RW-Everything in Windows). It works under OSX even if I change connector type in port 0 from LVDS to eDP or HDMI. I've tried to inject using Clover or DSDT patch, no-connect or no-edid.. These tests bring some differences in display behaviour (recognized as external or internal, with or without backlight control) but issue persists. I'm attaching files for any of you that have the time and want to help. Files are: - Original Clover extracted ACPI files. - Clover folder. - Multipatch (all patches used for this device copied/pasted in one single text file) - IOReg - Intel Video Bios extracted from Linux. - EDID extracted with SwitchResX from OSX. Thanks in advance! Companion2.zip
  22. This thread is a walkthrough on how to install Sierra. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. Although I haven't tested this on a Z87 FTW, in theory, the instructions in this guide should work for that motherboard since it only operates in Legacy Mode. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS • MY SPECS: 1. Intel Core i7-4770K (De-lidded) 2. EVGA Z97 FTW (ATX) 3. Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB 4. Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB DDR3 2400MHz 5. OCZ Vertex 4 512 GB 6. Patriot Dual Bay 2.5" SATA 3.5" drive bay (for SSD) 7. Noctua NH-U12S 8. My case: Modified Apple Powermac G5 9. ASUS BW-12B1ST 10. EVGA GeForce GTX680 SC 11. Silverstone SST-ST1200-G Evolution Strider Gold 1200W • WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 1. macOS 10.12 Sierra [from Mac App Store] 2. A computer running an Intel Processor 3. Access to OS X on VMWare (for Windows), Mac, or Hackintosh 4. 1x supported graphics card 5. Clover v2.3k r3763 and up 6. A USB flash drive at least 8 GB 7. Update your system with the latest BIOS • STEP 1: BIOS SETTINGS 1. AHCI mode and CD/DVD first boot priority are set in the BIOS by default. Ensure your settings match these in your Z97 BIOS: a. Go to ADVANCED→ SATA Configuration→ All settings should set at default; notice that your disks won't show up here if they're connected to black Marvell SATA ports. b. Go to BOOT→ Speaker Beep; switch to 'Off'. Change Boot mode select to 'Legacy'. Continue to FIXED Boot ORDER Priorities→ Check if CD/DVD is 1st Boot; Scroll down to Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities to set the boot sequence of the available hard disks. Go to CSM Configuration to ensure Launch CSM is 'Disabled'; This enables the bootloader menu screen to load with native HD as specified by your monitor. c. Go to ADVANCED→ Power Management→ ACPI Sleep State is S3 only (Suspend to RAM). d. Go to ADVANCED→ Graphics Configuration→ Disable internal graphics. e. Go to ADVANCED→ CPU Configuration; there is no option for Vt-d, so disable Intel Virtualization Technology (during installation). f. Go to ADVANCED→ USB Configuration→ Disable XHCI Mode. g. [OPTIONAL] Go to MEMORY; Under Memory Multiplier Configuration, set Performance Memory Profiles to XMP Profile 1. h. [OPTIONAL] Go to ADVANCED→ H/W Monitor Configuration→ Set all fan speeds to 50%. Save and Reset. • STEP 2: CREATING A BOOTABLE USB TO INSTALL OF SIERRA 1. Download macOS v10.12.0 Sierra [Mac App Store] and Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" will be in /Applications. a. Right-click "Install macOS Sierra" → Show Package Contents → Contents → ShareSupport → Double click to mount "InstallESD.dmg". b. Once "OS X Install ESD" appears, use ShowHiddenFiles to show hidden files. c. Now you will see an image called "BaseSystem.dmg" appear. Mount it by right-clicking and opening it with DiskImageMounter... Get prepared to use the USB stick with at least 8GB. NOTE: The version of Disk Utility found in El Capitan has been stripped down of its most essential features to proceed with the following instructions. Your next best option is to use a pre-modified version of the old Disk Utility. After downloading it, extract and copy it to the Desktop and type the following line in Terminal to take ownership, enabling the app to run: sudo chown -R 0:0 ~/Desktop/Disk\ Utility.app d. Open Disk Utility, and format the USB stick by highlighting its icon on the left and clicking the Partition tab, click Current, and choose 1 Partition. e. Click Options... Choose Master Boot Record. No need to name it (the default's OK), choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as its format type. Click Apply then Partition. f. Select and highlight the volume "OS X Base System", click "Restore" at the top-right, drag the volume into "Source" field, and drag the USB [untitled] partition (you just created) to the "Destination" field where you will restore the image: click "Restore" then "Erase"... g. After the process is complete, you'll now have (2) "OS X Base System" present in Finder. Eject the image "BaseSystem.dmg" and close Disk Utility. h. On the remaining volume "OS X Base System" (USB stick), go to System/Installation and delete Packages symlink. i. Open "OS X Install ESD" in a new Finder window, and copy the Packages folder to System/Installation folder inside "OS X Base System". j. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist, BaseSystem.dmg, AppleDiagnostics.chunklist, and AppleDiagnostics.dmg from "OS X Install ESD" and copy it to the volume root. k. Create a new folder named "Kernels" in System/Library on the USB stick. Use Pacifist v.3.2.17+ to extract "kernel" from "OS X Install ESD/Packages/Essential.pkg [/system/Library/Kernels/kernel]" and place "kernel" into System/Library/Kernels/ location. 2. We need to download and install the latest version of Clover (here) on the USB stick. a. Run the pkg, "Change Install Location" select your USB stick as your target location via "boot0af in MBR" and install using the following settings below: Make sure that it shows "Installation Complete." NOTE: When installing to HDD select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and/or "Install all RC scripts on all other boot volumes" and "Install Clover Preference Pane". b. Use ShowHiddenFiles to hide the hidden files, and quit the application. 3. You must copy your kexts to the EFI/Clover folder. a. Remove EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 leaving just 'Other'. Create a new folder titled '10.12'. b. Copy the required kexts FakeSMC.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (for PS/2 keyboard), and your ethernet kext (Intel I219-V) IntelMausiEthernet-V2.2.0 or AppleIntelE1000e v3.3.3 to the following directory: /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. NOTE: If you are having trouble getting Ethernet to work you can also try copying IONetworkingFamily.kext from S/L/E to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12 with your networking kext. 4. Use a text editor/plist editor like PlistEdit Pro to modify your config.plist manually. We must apply the following mandatory patches: a. You must add line ACPI/SSDT/DropOem=false in config.plist in order to boot without "Still waiting for root device" error. Add this <dict> entry to EFI/CLOVER/config.plist: <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>DropOEM_DSM</key> <false/> </dict> b. Use Clover’s built-in kernel patch to automatically apply the code to patch the (new) kernel after each OS X update to prevent reboot loop: <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>KernelPm</key> <true/> </dict> <key>Memory</key> <dict> c. AppleAHCIPort Clover patch disables orange drive icons. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data> RXh0ZXJuYWw= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> SW50ZXJuYWw= </data> </dict> </array> d. SMBIOS. With the config file still opened in your text/plist editor, scroll down to SMBIOS section to add the following SMBIOS system definition: <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>iMac14,2</string> <key>Trust</key> <false/> </dict> NOTE: Macmini6,2, iMac13,2 and iMac13,1 support speedstep.You can also do this using Clover Configurator: In the SMBIOS section, click the magic wand to select a SMBIOS relevant to your hardware (e.g. iMac14,2) – and close the screen and File/Save. e. GUI. Here you indicate the theme you want to use that you installed by entering the title in the string. I chose to use "random" as shown below: <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>DoubleClick</key> <integer>500</integer> <key>Enabled</key> <true/> <key>Mirror</key> <false/> <key>Speed</key> <integer>8</integer> </dict> <key>Scan</key> <true/> <key>Theme</key> <string>random</string> </dict> f. Boot Flag. It is necessary to use "-v" to monitor if any problems arise. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v</string> </dict> g. NVIDIA graphics cards especially 'Maxwell' currently lack support natively in macOS. To correct this problem, it requires System Parameter/NvidiaWeb entry. It must be disabled during installation by adding this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <false/> </dict> h. SIP. Apple has implemented 'rootless' security or System Integrity Protection (SIP) (reference sources 1, 2, & 3) since 10.11 which restricts users from modifying system folders/files, and as a result it locks down system folders and files against hacks and root attacks, making the system safer. However, SIP must be disabled in order to install anything (i.e., kexts) into protected system folders. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x3</string> </dict> i. Audio Fix. This Haswell board comes with a Realtek ALC898 audio chip. In order to use AppleALC/CloverALC (discussed further in this guide), you must add the following patch in the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>t1-10.9-10.11-AppleHDA/Realtek ALC898</string> <key>Find</key> <data> ixnUEQ== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleHDA</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> mQjsEA== </data> </dict> </array> 5. With the USB installer ready, remember before restarting system to change boot priority of USB stick to first to install Sierra on the hard disk of choice. 6. Highlight the USB installer from the bootloader menu screen and type kernel boot flag nv_disable=1 to avoid a blank screen (for Maxwell+ GPU's), resulting in 'No Display' signal. 7. Once the installer is finished, it will automatically restart the system. Boot from the USB installer and select the drive where you installed Sierra. • STEP 3: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation 1. As the system is loading, you'll be prompted to the macOS Welcome screen. a. Select your country then click "right arrow" to go to the next screen. b. Select "My computer does not connect to the Internet." c. Select "Don’t transfer any information now." d. Do not "Enable Location Services on this Mac" e. Agree to "Terms and Conditions." f. Enter your name, password, and hint and Continue. g. Confirm "Diagnostics & Usage" h. Wait a moment for the macOS desktop to load. i. When prompted to back up any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. • STEP 4: macOS 10.12 Post-Installation (Continued) 1. macOS Sierra no longer allows unsigned apps to run that did not come the App Store or identified developer. You can re-enable this function by running the following in Terminal: sudo spctl --master-disable 2. Go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and disable GateKeeper to allow installation of software by unidentified developers. 3. Copy the 'EFI' folder of the USB stick to the EFI partition of Sierra boot disk. 4. Install Clover v2.3k on the Sierra install HDD partition you plan to boot from. In addition to the settings configured earlier, select "Install RC scripts on target volume" and "Install Clover Preference Pane" when installing to the HDD. Installing RC scripts enables nvram variables required for iCloud and other services. It processes logs that are located in /Library/Logs/CloverEFI. You can also type bdmesg > Desktop/boot.txt in Terminal to get them manually. 5. Edit the config.plist from your boot disk in EFI/CLOVER/ by adding the following <dict> entries: a. New Method for Enabling NVIDIA Web Drivers. Boot flag nvda_drv=1 no longer works in config.plist to enable Web Drivers. A new setting under System Parameter in Clover called "NvidiaWeb" has been updated to fulfill this instead. <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary. b. Recovering designated name of boot menu entries. Copy NTFS.efi to EFI\CLOVER\drivers64 in order for Windows partitions to show their correct name instead of "Legacy HD" in Clover boot menu. c. Hide unwanted partitions. Now you can block any partition from showing up on boot menu with its given name or GUID in config.plist. <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Hide</key> <array> <string>HD(2,GPT,EA7857A1-DC6B-4BF9-A04C-43CADE9FCF89)</string> <string>MINI TB</string> <string>MISC TB</string> <string>GAMES</string> <string>VISTA</string> </array> </dict> d. USB patch. Sierra 10.12 requires the port limit to be raised in order for USB 3.0 ports to be recognized. This process involves installing FakePCIID.kext as well. Add this <dict> entry to the config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change 15 port limit to 20 in XHCI kext (9-series) 10.12</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////FQ==</data> </dict> </array> Be sure to copy FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12. NOTE: Set 'XHCI Mode' to Smart Auto in the BIOS to enable USB 3.0. 6. Remove Recovery partition. Deleting and merging a partition with 'diskutil' from the command line is the most precise method to remove the partition since it targets the recovery disk directly and merges it with the full Sierra partition. Launch the Terminal and type the following into the command line: diskutil list This will print out your drives partition scheme and look something like this: Look for "Recovery HD" and see which identifier it uses. In this screenshot it’s disk2s4. To remove that partition we use the following command (you can also use the volume name): diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ Blank /dev/disk2s4 The partition will be erased. You’ll now have a blank partition sitting around, so you’ll want to merge that with your other Sierra partition: diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ SIERRA disk2s3 disk2s4 This will merge the two partitions, with disk2s3 absorbing the space from disk2s4 and expanding, it causes data loss so don’t expect this to preserve anything. 7. NVIDIA graphics cards 'Maxwell'+ currently lack native support in macOS 10.12 so you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 kernel flag. a. Download and install NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.05f01 to enable NVIDIA Graphics Cards because they won't work OOB without them. NOTE: Remember to go to the NVIDIA Driver Manager menu bar at the top, change the settings to use Web drivers. Changes will take effect after restart. 8. Reboot using the USB installer and choose the Sierra install drive. 9. Download CUDA 7.5.30 drivers (increases GPU computing performance) needed for 10.12 support and install. 10. [OPTION 1] Install AppleALC to enable native audio by injecting the layout id supported for ALC898 through dynamic patching without modifying any kexts. Audio will no longer be affected after each macOS update and SIP can remain enabled. More details here. NOTE: AppleHDA must be native, original and unpatched. a. Mount EFI partition and add the following entry under Devices/Audio in the config.plist to inject working layout id 1 (or 2 or 3). <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> b. Download the latest version of AppleALC (v1.0.18) and copy it to CLOVER/kexts/10.12. NOTE: Rebuild kext cache if you have removed a modded AppleHDA to replace it with a native one by using Kext Utility or 'force rebuild cache' in Terminal: sudo –s sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions 11. [OPTION 2] Install the following patch associated with Realtek ALC898 AppleHDA Audio (by Toleda): a. Mount EFI partition, verify "Disable SIP" entry CsrActiveConfig=0x3 is in config.plist. b. Download audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip and extract "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command". c. No edits made to any native AppleHDA.kext file, 2-4 files added to Resources folder. NOTE: There may be noticeable pops before starting playback which is caused by OS X putting the audio codec to sleep. Disable AFGLowPowerState in config.plist with following <dict> entry: <key>Devices</key> <dict> <key>Audio</key> </dict> <key>AFGLowPowerState</key> <false/> </dict> If popping is still exists after using the method above, try using antipop. NOTE: There may be noticeable distortion after around 2 minutes of audio playback. Update to the latest version of Clover and add UseARTFrequency=false entry in the config.plist: <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>UseARTFrequency</key> <false/> </dict> <key>Devices</key> <dict> 12. Create a DSDT??? (More to come later) 13. [OPTION 1] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download Pike's ssdtPRGen.sh script which should auto-copy into your home directory, 'Volumes/Users/<username>' folder. Open Terminal and type the following: curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh b. Next, set the execute/search bits: chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh c. Run ssdtPRGen.sh script for first time without any arguments and let it download all the data that you need: ./ssdtPRGen.sh d. The Haswell.cfg should have already downloaded. e. Once finished you will have the ssdt.aml on the ~/library/ssdtPRGen/. Move it to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. NOTE: If you come across issues try the following: ○ Use Terminal to ensure Haswell.cfg is in the 'Data' folder by typing: open ~/library/ssdtPRGen/Data ○ You can remove any previously generated and downloaded script file by typing: sudo rm -R ~/Library/ssdtPRGen ○ You can rerun another freshly downloaded ssdtPRGen.sh script with your processor type: ./ssdtPRGen.sh ○ For additional help see also: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -help 14. [OPTION 2] Create a SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) to configure the maximum clock speed. a. Download the Pike’s script v14.1 (modified for i-core processors) and put it on your desktop. Use it only for the PC it is running from. The script reads some information specific about your CPU and its number of cores. b. Open Terminal and type "sudo" then leave a space and drag the script file into the Terminal window then leave a space and type in the Turbo Speed (Maximum Turbo Frequency) for your processor and then press enter. e.g., Intel Core i7-4770K type code: sudo /Users/"YourUsername"/Desktop/ssdtPRGen.sh -TURBO 3500 Type your password when prompted and press Enter. c. Ignore the following "Error: Unknown processor model ..." since the CPU is unsupported. d. A decompiled file called SSDT.aml will generate in a hidden folder "tmp". Type "open /tmp" (no quotations) to reveal its location. e. Place SSDT.aml into /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ folder. 15. Installing the following kexts/widget is optional. Copy the kexts into the /EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.12 folder. Install the widget using Launchpad → Dashboard: ○ HWSensors 6.23.1417 Binaries (with FakeSMC): Helps you monitor CPU, memory, disks, network, temperatures, fans, load/uptime, and processes. 16. Install iStat Pro 4.92 r2, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. • STEP 5: Updating to 10.12.2 1. Download and install macOS Sierra 10.12.2 Combo Update and reboot. 2. After restarting, accept the popup window that prompts you to download and install the latest the NVIDIA Web Driver 367.15.10.25 to proceed. 3. Download CUDA 8.0.57 drivers needed for 10.12.2 support from NVIDIA and install and reboot. 4. Reinstall audio by patching AppleHDA with audio_cloverALC-120.command.zip [for OPTION 2]. • OPTIONAL: Fixing Time Sync issue with macOS/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7, 8 & 10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to macOS, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time. NOTE: Avoid changing the time in macOS if you are running a multi-boot system. You only have to modify the time in the BIOS and in Windows followed by enabling the setting to sync the clock with online time. WORKING-config.plist-for-Z97.zip
  23. Hello A month ago I upgraded my PC from AMD to Intel platform in the context of build Hackintosh machine. So I made movie from this process with benchmark comparing these platforms. So old Phenom x4 955 is still good piece of silicon compared with intel Haswell. Of course in benchmark Cinebench is a large difference but in the games is not so much Windows 8.1 and OS X El Capitan are for one machine and both working very well Below my movie with benchmarks: Upgrade from AMD Phenom x4 955 to Intel i5 4460 ( Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 3 ) with Benchmarks

    [WIP] Z97X-UD7 TH thunderbolt DSDT

    Please help me remove the errors. DSDT.aml.zip Update 8/31/2015 Need help fixing "OperationRegion GPIO" in post #8
  25. Hello everyone, I'm posting a new thread on behalf of myself and a few other members here (konrad11901, blackswords and Dmitry R). We've been experiencing an unstable system after wake. My system is ab Asrock Z97M OC Formula with an i5-4670k, konrad11901 has an MSI B85-G43 Gaming with an i5-4460, blackswords has an MSI PC Mate Z97 with an i5-4690k and Dimitry R has an Asrock Z170M-ITX ac with an i3-6100. I recently got my Z97M OC Formula to replace a GA-Z87MX-D3H which suffered from corrupted memory after long sleep. I'm booting using Clover, with a patched DSDT, and an SSDT generated with PikerAlpha's ssdtPRGen.sh. I've attached the files of my configuration. Soon after wake, the log shows messages such as: 2016-03-29 11:23:21,000 kernel[0]: Unsynchronized TSC for cpu 1: 0x0000000193273184, delta 0x18e0a1aca 2016-03-29 11:23:21,000 kernel[0]: Unsynchronized TSC for cpu 2: 0x0000000193428ced, delta 0x18e0a1aed 2016-03-29 11:23:21,000 kernel[0]: Unsynchronized TSC for cpu 3: 0x00000001935de52f, delta 0x18e0a1aed followed by process crashes, usually culminating in a launchd crash, causing a kernel panic and a reboot: *** Panic Report ***panic(cpu 1 caller 0xffffff800cb9aaa4): launchd exited (signal 8, exit status 0 ) … Thread 3 crashed … We have noticed that the output of pmset -g log | grep -i failure points to various PCIe devices, most notably the graphics card. Here's my output at the moment: 2016-03-29 13:11:50 +0200 Failure Drivers Failure panic during wake due to PEG0(NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA),IGPU(): 2016-03-29 22:45:40 +0200 Failure Drivers Failure panic during wake due to PEG0(NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA NVDA),IGPU(): With VoodooTSCSync.kext, we've noticed launchd crashes less often, meaning waking from sleep works, apart from the other processes that do crash. My theory is that there's something wrong with the firmware of our boards, or an issue with the DSDT or with CPU power management. This underlying problem is causing a TSC sync issue, which causes problems with PCIe devices as well as processes. Does anyone know the cause? Are there more people with this issue? And can anyone explain the relationship between the TSC, the HPET and the RTC? Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed any light on this issue. Kind regards, Pieter Edit: I forgot to mention that konrad11901 discovered that when using hibernation (hibernatemode=25) in stead of sleep there are no crashes, but of course, this isn't an ideal solution.
