  1. Here's my driver for LSI MegaRAID SAS family of controllers called SASMegaRAID.kext. This one was requested few times at InsanelyMac and other Mac-related communities. Download link https://github.com/dukzcry/osx-goodies/releases or https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/306-sasmegaraidkext/ F.A.Q.: Q: I can't manage controller via supplied utility A: Only monitoring functional is supported, management is done via controller BIOS Q: Any chance to make cards based on SAS2208 chip work? A: Not currently, the chip belongs to the same family, but it requires a lot of handling different from common handling for supported cards. Q: The driver loads but my device doesn't show up anywhere in profiler. What should I do? A: Try inverting "PreferMSI" key value. It's under "Settings" dictionary in kext's plist. Q: macOS doesn't see my volumes A: Set them as virtual (logical) disks in controller's BIOS. If no luck try "Uncontiguous enumeration.zip" version. See full issue report https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forums/topic/285197-driver-for-lsi-megaraid-sas-family/?do=findComment&comment=1987665 Q: Is it possible to push more from my setup? A: It may be. The plist from "Unsafe settings unlocked.zip" allows tweaking of dangerous options. Before playing with them you need to detach all HDDs with critical data and attach some spare HDD for doing the tweaks. The "MaxSGL" option is number of scatter gather list entries you controller can handle. The "MaxTransferSize" determines the maximum size of data transfer (in bytes) per request your controller can catch. If you set them to some enormously big value then they will be truncated to the max values your hardware can achieve (may still be not safe enough for successful data transfers). "MaxTransferSizePerSegment" does the same but for a single SGL entry (will never be larger than MaxTransferSize). For the tests you need to stick to the system.log and start a transfer of a >= 100gb data. If the settings you set are inappropriate, you'll see the I/O errors. Q: My Mac stopped to go sleep after i've loaded your kext.A: This is awaited. See https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forums/topic/285197-driver-for-lsi-megaraid-sas-family/?do=findComment&comment=1986269 Use kext from "Unsafe settings unlocked.zip" and set "AllowSleep" key to true. Q: Your driver doesn't work for me. Are there any alternatives? A: Yes there is one https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forums/topic/314799-guide-z820-el-capitan-the-great-guide-sucess/?do=findComment&comment=2556863 Q: I get "mfiutil: mfi_open: not such file or directory" error A: It maybe that unit number of you device is not 0 (which is default). Try the following: $ ls /dev/mfi? /dev/mfi2 $ sudo mfiutil -u 2

    [Success] 10.9.1 on HP z800

    I have successfully installed Mavericks (10.9.1) to my HP Z800. Specification 2x Intel Xeon E5520 @ 2.26GHz Four Cores Eight Threads; 96 GB 1066 MHZ ECC DDR3; Nvidia GTX 760; Intel Rapid raid storage; LSI SAS controller; 1×128 GB SSD and 4x2TB HDD; Procedure Get your Mavericks 10.9.1. This is must, after 10.9.1 the support to LSI SAS controller is removed; On your Mac, use myHack (you can get it http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/) to create a USB installer, for which you will need at 8GB stick; Change hardware settings of HP Z800 to make all your SSD and HDD connected to SAS port instead of SATA port (which won’t be recognized). Remove unnecessary component from HP Z800. Change the bios setting of HP Z800 to disable vt-d and make sure booting from LSI is enabled (press ctrl+c during booting to access LSI interface); Insert your USB installer to HP Z800 and use following boot flag “GraphicsEnabler=no PCIRootUID=0 -v -f”. The first two flags we used for the GTX 760 graphic card and “-f” disable kernel cache; Follow the install instruction of the Apple. Approaching to completion, myHack will indicate you to remove some kexts, press “yes” to all of them; After installation is completed, remove the USB installer from HP Z800; Boot HP Z800 to the Mavericks just installed and follow all the instruction; In your system, change boot flag in /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist Benchmark
  4. Hello, I have two hackintoshes running 10.8 perfectly booting from SAS drives (not using hardware RAID, OS X can only detect separate drives), using the Clover bootloader. One is a HP xw8400, which has an LSI SAS1064 PCI-X Fusion-MPT controller that worked out of the box with the AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext kext without any modifications (PCI ID 1000:0050). The HP xw8600 has a SAS1068 instead, so I needed to add the corresponding PCI ID under IONameMatch (pci1000,54) to get it to work. However, attempting to boot Mavericks installation with the latest Clover 2236 doesn't detect my disks at all on either computer. dmesg doesn't show output from the FusionMPT kext as it did on ML. This is the ioreg of the xw8400 computer (the one that worked with the unmodified Apple kext) under ML. Any idea of what could be happening here? The PCI ID in the Mavericks version of AppleLSIFusionMPT still has pci1000,50 there, so I have no idea why the kext isn't kicking in the Mavericks installer. Thanks! ioreg.log.txt
