  1. Attempting to install high sierra 10.13.6 with cloverCurrent build: (was running yosemite through chimera)Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD7 THCPU: i7-4790KGraphics: GTX 980Other Hardware: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C9D-16GXH Was able to install 10.13.6 high sierra installed, with these efi settings. Mouse and keyboard don't work in welcome screen just see the languages with mouse locked in top left corner.Tried a bunch of usb settings no success. I even added FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext, FakePCIID.kext, & USBInjectAll.kext still no luck with usb. Can't get past welcome page. Motherboard only has usb 3.0. I was able to get the usb 3.0 working in mojave (sadly issues w/ nvidia graphics card driver) using just the USBInjectAll.kext and some of the replace hex patches for usb support and remove limiters.Any help would be appreciated!

  2. I recently did a new install of Yosemite on a Gigabyte GA-Z97X TH motherboard, and with an i7-4790K CPU. I've been doing hackintosh installs for many years, and this was basically the same as previous installs. However there are few gotchas and things to be aware of. I found these on the internet in various places, and these notes put them all in one place. This is not a detailed guide, but notes for somewhat experienced people. BIOS Settings Before starting, I upgraded to the current BIOS, F5. I started with the optimized defaults, and found only one critical BIOS setting. Under BIOS Features, the VT-d setting must be disabled. When it was enabled, no matter what I did, Yosemite would only boot in safe mode. AppleThunderboltNHI.kext This kext is not necessary to use Thunderbolt. However, when it's present, it causes a 40-second or so pause during boot. Remove it from /System/Library/Extensions (I moved it to /disabled_extensions) and rebuild the kext cache. Chameleon I used Chameleon, but got frequent immediate boot errors with the latest release. This is fixed in a recent version, and the errors disappeared after I built and installed Chameleon r2670. DSDT No DSDT changes are necessary, however I like to have a DSDT I can modify. To decompile the DSDT to something I could compile, I found that I had to provide as input to iasl both DSDT.aml and SSDT5.aml. I obtained those from linux. After that there were only two changes to get the DSDT to compile. I removed all the "zero" lines starting around line 7304. Also, I removed the line "Arg0" around line 14823 in "Method (ADBG, 1, Serialized)". SSDT Creating an SSDT with ssdtPRGen worked well. I used version 15.6. Networking The open source AppleIntelE1000e kext works well for the built-in Intel ethernet. HD 4600 Graphics I'd never done an install before using the integrated graphics. All I had to do to get that working was to add these lines to org.chameleon.Boot.plist: <key>IntelAzulFB</key> <string>10</string> smbios and FakeSMC config I decided to configure my install as an iMac14,2. iMac15,1 would be closer, but there's very little information available so far for iMac15,1, and iMac14,2 is also a Haswell Mac. I found enough information to make an accurate smbios.plist for iMac14,2. These are the values I found: <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>IM142.88Z.0118.B00.1309031249</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>iMac</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>iMac14,2</string> (You'll also need to generate an appropriate serial number.) Also, in FakeSMC, I changed the SMC version to 2.15f2 and the SMC name to smc-huronriver in Info.plist: <key>REV </key> <array> <string>{rev</string> <data> AhUPAAAC </data> </array> <key>RVBF</key> <array> <string>{rev</string> <data> AhUPAAAC </data> </array> <key>RVUF</key> <array> <string>{rev</string> <data> AhUPAAAC </data> </array> and <key>smc-compatible</key> <string>smc-huronriver</string> SpeedStep I was pleasantly surprised to discover that at this point SpeedStep appeared to be working. MSRDumper showed me speeds of 8, 40, and 44. It's possible to get more speeds between 40 and 44 by changing the BIOS multipliers, but adding those reduced the GeekBench 3 score. With 8, 40, and 44, my 64-bit score is 17,694. Cosmetic Changes System Profiler was showing my CPU as a Xeon. That appears to be due to a bug in Chameleon r2670. A workaround is to hard-code the brand string in libsaio/cpu.c: p->CPU.BrandString[47] = '\0'; // DBG("Brandstring = %s\n", p->CPU.BrandString); } strlcpy(p->CPU.BrandString, "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz", 48); //char *vendor = p->CPU.cpuid_vendor; switch (p->CPU.Vendor){ case CPUID_VENDOR_INTEL: where the strlcpy line is added as line 400. Also, both the Intel and Marvell SATA controllers were showing up as generic AHCI devices. That can be fixed with a modified version of AHCIPortInjector.kext. Here is the replacement Info.plist: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>org.chameleon.plist.AHCIPortInjector</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>6.0</string> <key>CFBundleName</key> <string>AHCI Chipsets Injector</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>KEXT</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>????</string> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>1.0.0</string> <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict> <key>Intel9SeriesAHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>9 Series Chipset</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleIntelPchSeriesAHCI</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>pci8086,8c82</string> <string>pci8086,8c83</string> </array> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>Intel</string> </dict> <key>MarvellAHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>88SE9172</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleIntelPchSeriesAHCI</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>pci1b4b,9172</string> </array> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>Marvell</string> </dict> </dict> <key>OSBundleRequired</key> <string>Local-Root</string> </dict> </plist> (This fixes both Intel and Marvell.) At this point I'm ready to try getting Thunderbolt to work, and I'll post an update if I get information about that. If anyone knows better solutions for the issues I encountered, please let me know. Update: see #5 below for my initial experience with Thunderbolt.
  3. I recently build my first hackintosh. Most things are working, but i still have OpenCL issues in FileZilla and some other programs. FileZilla looks like this: and prints that error: I also get similar rendering glitches in the IntelliJ floobits plugin, though i'm not sure it's an OpenCL issue. Any idea what the problem could be? Btw. if it's a framebuffer related issue, i took the r9 290x configuration out of the AMD GPU Injector tool and modified it following this tutorial
