  1. I used this command: diskutil info disk0s2 | grep -i "Partition UUID" | rev | cut -d' ' -f 1 | revBut I accidentally removed the wrong disk and now my main windows drive is not appearing in the bootloader. I can't figure out how to get it back. I tried resetting my windows drive, but I kept getting an error. I also reset my mac and reinstalled Catalina.

    Patch DSDT per Hdmi

    Ho provato tutti i modi ma sono arrivato alla conclusione che ha bisogno di una patch DSDT. Ciao, ho recentemente un hackintosh nel mio laptop e devo risolvere l'attacco video HDMI che non ha eseguito quando collego il mio laptop alla TV. le foto con queste informazioni sono state fatte con un programma quando che avrei vinto 10 nell'altra foto l'informazione di hackintosh. Acer Aspire 5741g Modello High Sierra System! Caratteristiche: CPU: Intel Core I3 350M 2.27Ghz Arrandale 32nm Tecnologia Ram: 6: 00GB Grafica: Monitor Pnp generico (1366x768 Ghz) 1024mb Nvidia GeForce GT 320M (Acer Incorporated) Archiviazione: 465 GB Sata Driver Optiocal: Optiarc DVD RW- AS-7585H Audio: dispositivo audio ad alta degradazione Qualcuno può aiutarmi!?! E 'la terza volta che faccio questo post in questo gruppo visto che sono nuovo nel mondo hackintosh preferisco se qualcuno è capace a risolvere il mio problema che lo faccia in remoto così non faccio sbagli.
  6. Hey guys, I'm trying to install my second Hackintosh system now for like 2 days (first one was Z370, super easy, super stable) with Vanilla Install, but I just can't get the X299 system working. I followed the Vanilla Hackintosh Guide strictly and just changed the SMBIOS to iMacPro1,1 in the config.plist. After selecting the macOS Installer drive on Clover boot menu I never get to the installation process of Catalina... most of the time I get the progress bar to load up until 100% but it never goes further. Going into verbose mode I got that message at last: IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 error. I tried also using the same EFI with a Mojave installer which let me actually install it but the installation process was super slow and laggy - I had to cancel it. It's now my third day trying to get this done and I'm really feeling frustrated about it as I've been doing nothing else than trying out various solutions I could google. My kexts: AppleALC Lilu WhateverGreen USBInjectAll XHCI-Unsupported IntelMausiEthernet VirtualSMC My system: CPU: Intel Core i9-10900X Motherboard: ASUS X299 Prime Deluxe II CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62 RAM: 32GB DDR4-3600 CL16 G.Skill Trident Z Royal GPU: Sapphire RX5700 XT Nitro+ SE PSU: Corsair HX750i SSD: 2x 500GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus (both firmwares updated!) I really hope someone can help me out!
  7. Hi people, I'm having some issues getting my hackintosh to work 100%. It's at 99%, and the only problem that I have is with shutdown/restart. Whenever I try to shutdown or restart my computer, it will go to the spinner screen, and in the case of a shutdown, the spinner will just be stuck and the computer will not shutdown, while in the case of a restart the spinner will be just a sad line of 2 or 4 white pixels in the bottom half of the screen, with the computer also failing to do anything else, forcing me to either shut down the PSU using it's on/off switch or by pressing the case's restart button. I may also add that I, before buying a RX 570, had a working setup with the UHD 630, it would shutdown/restart without a problem (if the primary video output port in the bios was set to PCI01). I have also made an USB SSDT patch for the 15-port limit, but that has not helped. Anyways, here's my setup: MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G84) SMBIOS iMac19,2 (if that matters) i3-8100 UHD 630 (Device ID 0x3E98, enabled in bios) Gigabyte RX 570 Gigabyte B360M-D3H No extra PCI cards Also, my config.plist, my USB SSDT patch, and a screenshot of my kexts and drivers folders are attached. config.plist SSDT_USB.aml
  8. Do you want some help from an online community? Building Hacks has always been community based venture, where personal gain comes from working with others. Let’s ask one very simple but the serious and important question first! Why anyone should help you at all? Really? What’s so special about you? What people gain from helping you except the waste of their valuable lifetime? Time is the most precious resource! There is no way to turn back wasted time! Problems are a normal part of of life. Mostly problems are some obstacles we need to overcome. But another hand, if you do not learn how to deal with your own problems, life will be a difficult path for you. Why other's should make their life difficult because of you? Before you ask any help, learn how to ask for help. And I can bet that most people don't do it! They will waste their own and others precious lifetime again and again! I have decided that I will help only people who deserve it! Who are they? Those who: are attempted to help themselves first; are providing valuable information about their case and don't force others to guess; have the will to learn how to solve issues by self and do not gamble by trying whatever jumps in mind or do blindly what some ignorant dumb suggests; are really helping others; highly value the time of others. People who are not willing to learn and don't pay attention to details never deserve any help as there is no way to help them. Guidelines for asking help for Hackintosh related issues. For first I have to make another disclaimer! If you don't want to learn about computing, do not waste your's and other's time and money on building Hack by self, instead just buy a genuine Mac and contact Apple's support whenever you need some help; or second option, find some IT pro who can build the Hack for you and pay very well for his help. If you decided otherwise, then: Take time to read the Community Rules. Admit that if some person pays attention to you, it's actually personal support case like Apple Care etc! Respect them! Admit that your knowledge is lacking and you have to learn about what you are trying to do. RTFM. RTFM is an initialism for the expression "read the fu**ing manual". How would you solve the problem without the computer, just with a pencil and paper? Learn to debug, which is just a scientific way of narrowing down the reasons. Research first, do not post first! On 99% of cases someone already had the same or very similar issue. Learn how to leave others out of guesswork - collect diagnostics data which can help others on solving your case. Do not post any help requests without diagnostics data and details about your system. One specific problem at a time! Learn to set strict boundaries rather than trying to solve everything within one request. Useful tools Hackintool * - An extremely useful GUI to handle several Hack issues but not intent to be an automated patching tool that does all the work for you. Ubuntu Live USB * - There are plenty of tasks, which you cannot complete on Hack and you need to boot you comp into Linux. * - must have Useful quotes You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. (An old proverb) .. you do not have obligation to help... @C.Frio You are welcome to post your recommendations how to ask help.

  13. Hi Guys, I've been at this for a few days now, and I haven't been able to get any further. This is my 4th Hackintosh build, and I've literally never been so stuck.

    aiuto con opencore e catalina

    sono un pò arrugginito ..e volevo chiedere un aiuto su come installare opencore anzichè clover. ho provato ma dopo il post installazione riesco solo a far partire catalina tramite pendrive. quale congifurazione sbaglio? EFI.zip
  15. I am unable to boot into Catalina (HS boots just fine.) I was able to boot into it to install it, but after that, I have had no luck. Here’s my last line before the hang up: IO80211VirtualInterface::init _controller is 0xc4de..., pro I am using an i5-8600k, with a ROG STRIX Z-370e motherboard. I have been trying to figure out my iGPU, and I finally got past it, only to get this error about 20 lines down. Here’s my EFI folder if it helps.
  16. Hi guys, I need help with my Sapphire RX580 8GB. It works and I have it connected to a BenQ EW3270U (4k monitor through DP), but I noticed that the quality of my video is not exactly great; I just don't feel like it's up to spec with some fuzziness and everything just isn't as sharp as I expect it to be. It's hard to explain exactly what I see, but especially when there's transparency in windows for instance, I see what I would compare to colour compression artifacting in the gradients of the images showing through the transparency effects. It looks like a video with fading on Youtube but the compression makes it look like waves of pixels as opposed to a real gradient, if that makes any sense? It's impossible to film or photograph properly, and - the part that gets me - if I do a screenshot, it's not visible! I must have been super tired when I posted... it's visible on screen shots after all (see attached). It screams graphic acceleration issues to me but I really am at a loss on how to diagnose this issue further. It's not unusable or anything, but I want to get it to work properly and get as much as I can out of it all. As a comparative I did plug in a Retina MBP to the monitor to make sure it wasn't the issue and as expected, I did not see any of this with the MBP. I have Lilu and WEG in my 10.14 kext folder, and my (shameful) config is attached, but I more than likely am missing something important... All this explained, I want to point out a few things: this is an old machine (built 2012) and I had the same config throughout with exactly 0 issues. This is one reason why I not only never had to optimize it, but I now also pretty much fell off the Hackintosh bandwagon: I am not exactly well versed in all the technical backend of this community as I was until now lucky with a plug and play machine with no issues. I will need a lot of help to get back up to date... that said I also had incomprehensible and undiagnosed issues getting the RX580 to work on this machine. Even if it was effortless for everyone else, I had to do a LOT of troubleshooting and in the end, I have no clue how I got it to work! So I'm mortified of changing anything on it without getting some advice first since everything, iCloud and iMessage included, works. I'll be happy to fill in any info and I'm hungry to learn. It's just a bit daunting to start over and my searches have discouraged me a but. I know beggars can't be choosers but I have a 60-hour a week job and I just need a bit of guidance if anyone wants to help me off my training wheels I fully know I'm in a bad spot and quite frankly I'm ashamed of it. Help me make it better please. config.plist
  17. Hi, I want to install MacOS Catalina on my laptop. I was installed MacOS Mojave previously but i had a lot of problem, for example my wifi's card (Dell DW1820A) had a problem: My pc sometimes doesn't boot up or pc after some minutes crashed or slowed.

  18. Hi, i can someone help me with installing mac OS Mojave on my HP ENVY - 15-as102na?I have an imac to use for setting up my usb & installing MacOS Mojave.There are various kext files etc that i'm not sure about and need some help as some are hardware specific.I tried previously but got stuck on an apple logo and couldn't get past that, and tried today and had problems with Clover. Once i get mac os on my 128gb m.2 ssd ( which i'll upgrade to either a 256gb or 512gb depending on how well this hackintosh works) I have a free 2.5" inch hdd bay where i'd like to install windows on in the future. I think i may have to replace my wireless card ( based on a few google results) which i'm fine with as long as i can see it working without just so i know i won't waste moneySpecs:Cpu: i5 7200uGPU: HD 6208GB ramWifi card- Intel Wireless 7265 ( Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) )Motherboard - HP 81D2 & BIOS version is f.56 https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05311862 Thanks

    Trouble with igpu in 10.14.2

    Hackintosh post Hi Everyone. I really need some help. My GPU just went out so, I'm replacing my Vega 64 with a 5700 XT and was planning on using my iGPU until the when/if the 5700XT is supported in a mackintosh. I've currently got a GB Z390 M Gaming with an 8700K. 16GB Ram. Running Mojave 10.14.2. Right now everything is working perfectly (except I have to pull my Vega 64 to get the water block looked at - the pump was making weird noises this morning, but is still working at the moment as I use this sparingly). The hack boots. [Intel GPU shows up in system report](https://imgur.com/a/rwhDbSM) but the problem I'm facing is there is no output to it. Does anyone know what I've got going wrong here? I appreciate any help and will make a donation to a charity to celebrate when I get this figured out. I've been working on this on and off all dang day. [I've got my Bios set correctly per multiple posts on reddit/hackintosher/tonyosx.](https://imgur.com/a/IX9kKVK) [EFI Folder](https://pastebin.com/XDMAJ77c) [Config.plist](https://pastebin.com/31QbSPQ3)
