  1. Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, or High Sierra in VMware Workstation 12 on a Windows Host I wanted to make a simple guide on how to create a vanilla OS X El Capitan virtual machine running on a Windows host. The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh. There are many guides and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMWare disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there…. I’ve gathered info for this guide from various threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum eg Workstation 11/12, Player 7/12, Fusion 7/8 and ESXi 6 Mac OS X Unlocker 2 by @Donk How to Install OS X 10.x from Snow Leopard to El Capitan in VMware Workstation 10/12, Player 6/8 or ESXi 5/6 by @MSOK HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware Credit and thanks to @Donk, @Albert Nietsnie and @MSOK for all their hard work in creating and testing the VMware Unlocker program. Requirements Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X) 4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X) Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine VMware Workstation 12 or later VMware Unlocker 2.0.7 or later Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#41 16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack 1. On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder. 2. Unmount any attached install image/InstallESD.dmg (if currently mounted) by rebooting the system or running the hdiutil unmount command in terminal eg 3. Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes…. 4. Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script: cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 5. At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later. Update: @shela has created an ISO generating script compatible with OS X 10.6-10.12: create_osx_iso post #362. Install and Patch VMware Workstation 12 on your PC 1. Download and install VMWare Workstation Player 12 or later 2. Download and extract Unlocker 2.0.7 or later to your USB stick… 3. Run the win-install.cmd as administrator by right clicking the file in Windows explorer or run it from an Administrative Command Prompt. Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine 1. Double click on the VMware Workstation 12 Player icon on your desktop and click “Create a New Virtual Machine”. Choose “I will install the operating system later” at the How will you install screen…. 2. Select Apple Mac OS X as the Guest operating system and OS X 10.11 as the version. By default, an OS X 10.11 folder will be created in your Documents\Virtual Machines folder. 3. Under Specify Disk Capacity, you can leave the default 40GB or set a larger value. I personally store the virtual disk as a single file. Click Finish and you will see OS X 10.11 on the Main Screen of Workstation 12. 4. Next, we need to edit the virtual machine settings to map the virtual SATA CD/DVD drive to the El Capitan installation iso we created earlier. 5. To prevent the virtual machine from crashing in Windows, the virtualHW.version set in the vmx configuration file needs to be changed from 12 to 10 (alternatively, the line smc.version = "0" can be added to the file). The OS X 10.11.vmx file can be edited with the WordPad program (navigate to the OS X 10.11 virtual machine folder with Windows Explorer and right click on the file to open in WordPad). 6. For HW10, set USB compatibility to USB 2.0, otherwise your mouse and keyboard might not work in the virtual machine. 7. Finally click “Play virtual machine” Installation of El Capitan Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer: 1. Select language, agree to legal terms 2. Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended. I’ve named the drive Macintosh HD but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan. 3. Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on. 4. After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete and the VM will automatically reboot… 5. At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout. You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish… 6. Create a User Account and select your Time Zone. You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple…. 7. Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop. You should eject the Installation iso now by right clicking and selecting “Eject OS X Base System”. This will allow you to install VMware Tools…. 8. After rebooting, the VM can now be resized or run at full screen resolution. Audio and network/internet should also work OOB. SMBIOS Customization and iMessage Vars To make the Virtual Machine more "Mac like", you can edit the vmx file to add unique identifiers from a real Mac's SMBIOS - eg for an iMac 11,3 SMBIOS, you can enter the following lines.... smbios.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id = "Mac-F2238BAE" hw.model.reflectHost = "FALSE" hw.model = "iMac11,3" serialNumber.reflectHost = "FALSE" serialNumber = "W80#######6" Refer How to spoof real Mac in VMware - Multi-booting and Virtualisation. The critical variables for iMessage/Facetime activation are MLB & ROM. By default, VMware "reflects" the host's MLB and ROM since it assumes you are running the OSX guest on a real Mac host - see post#42 by @Donk. If the host is a Windows PC, the following lines need to be added to the vmx file (requires virtualHW.version 12 and smc.version = "0").... efi.nvram.var.ROM.reflectHost = "FALSE" efi.nvram.var.MLB.reflectHost = "FALSE" system-id.enable = "TRUE" and the MLB, ROM and optionally system-id entered manually eg efi.nvram.var.MLB = "W80######BA1A" (MLB can be 13 or 17 characters long, alphanumeric string) efi.nvram.var.ROM = "<=>?@A" (ROM is entered here as a 6 character ASCII string) uuid.bios = "## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##-## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##" <---Optional (if you want to inject a given system-id hexadecimal value) Note the output for ROM from imessage_debug is a 12 character hexadecimal that needs to be entered here as a 6 character ASCII string eg using an Hex to ASCII converter we find that "3c3d3e3f4041" hex is equivalent to "<=>?@A". Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite . Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware. With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5... Enjoy Update for Sierra 10.12 The above settings still work for macOS Sierra after upgrading to VMware Workstation 12.5 and unlocker 2.0.8 - see post #13. Update for High Sierra 10.13 See post#30 & post#41 which describes how to build "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on the fly from installer files downloaded beforehand in /SharedSupport folder.

  2. Toshiba Satellite L755 1j2 Hackintosh Download This file. It contains the zip file with everything you need for the installation. • A Toshiba Satellite L755 1j2– This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial • A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. • A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. This is for an clean install. 1.

  3. I know veterans from the hackintosh community claimed that Intel HD 2500 is not supported and doesn't work, but mine (mobile version) works with High Sierra, as it did back with every versions since Mountain Lion. I formerly started a topic here for ElCapitan : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/316981-intel-hd-graphics-ivy-b-hd-2500-qeci-for-osx-1011/ This should apply to any laptop with following CPU (mobile Ivy Bridge) Intel Pentium 2030M, Intel Pentium 2020M, Intel Celeron 1020E, Intel Celeron 1020M, Intel Pentium 2127U, Intel Celeron 1005M, Intel Pentium 2117U, Intel Celeron 1000M, Intel Celeron 1037U, Intel Celeron 1017U, Intel Celeron 1007U, Intel Celeron 1047UE, Intel Pentium 2129Y, Intel Celeron 1019Y, Intel Celeron 927UE I guess following Desktop CPUs owners should be able to make it work (It probably requires DSDT edits to enable the proper output, on my laptop I only use and tested LVDS) Intel Core i5-3550, Intel Core i5-3470, Intel Core i3-3220 My Laptop is an Asus (F301A-RX229H) with an Intel Pentium Mobile 2020M, which includes an Intel HD Graphics, not labelled 2500, but it has 6 execution Units like the 2500, and approximately same clock settings (650-1100) instead of 650-1150 for HD2500. You can check specs here and here. Most importantly, it is identified by bootloader and MacOsX/macOS as "Intel HD Graphics 2500" and uses HD4000 kexts. Few Graphic Glitches (windows title bar, dock...) solved by reducing transparency in Accessibility Preferences Panel.

  6. Hello, I have a laptop (HP 15-ay034nl) with Intel Core i7 6500U SkyLake An integrated Intel HD Graphics 520 video card and a dedicated AMD Radeon R7 M340. You can install macOS Sierra? Thanks in advance
  7. Hardware Info: HP ENVY Sleekbook 4-1009tu 1.4GHz i3-2367M (check here) MacOS version: Sierra (10.12.3) Please help me make Intel HD 3000 work with this machine. I tried to patch DSDT using MaciASL but to no avail. I am having screen glitch, poor graphics performance, no glass interface and only 4MB graphics memory. I cannot change screen brightness too. I attached my config.plist and my DSDT.aml file. Please help. Thank you config.txt dsdt.txt
  8. The title pretty much sums it, but here it goes: I upgraded an otherwise fully working hackintosh from Yosemite to Sierra. Now I'm stuck, already for two days. It will boot only in Safe Mode, or if I removed my DSDT from the appropriate Clover folder (and in this case I need to inject the HD4000 with Clover's Graphics Injector). What happens is the boot goes fine until the last stage, crash-rebooting at the exact instant the Desktop should appear. If I use verbose, I see a quite messy screen before the sudden reboot. No panic message. If I set Clover to prevent reboot on kernel panics, the said messy screen stays frozen until I do a hard reset. At first I thought my old DSDT became corrupt, so I deleted, restarted with no DSDT (injecting the intel graphics via Clover) and created a new one, using macIASL and Pjalm's patches for my board and a HD4000 patches. Surprise, surprise: the problem didn't go away. Then I deleted the new DSDT, restarted the computer in safe mode, and I tried again, this time using Toleda's Clover audio HDMI command tool, which created two SSDTs in the Clover ACPI/Patched folder - I need HDMI audio, and that's why I cannot settle with simply using Graphics Injector - and, as I feared, it didn't solve anything. I already ruled out the basic mistakes: lack of FakeSMC, VT-D being enabled in the BIOS, wrong SMBIOS for the build etc. The specs are: i7 3770 (non K), HD4000, Gigabyte B75M D3H, macOS Sierra 10.12.1, Clover (legacy mode) rev 3923 and SMBIOS set to iMac 13,1. All these settings worked fine since Mountain Lion (I started using Clover with Yosemite though). Any help would be much appreciated! All the best.
  9. I am trying to install macOS Sierra. It boots the installer and runs the first phase fine. However, in second phase when I select "Boot macOS install" it boots up, starts installing and gets an error "Unable to unmount volume for repair." Any ideas? Hp Envy dv6 Intel Core i7 (Ivy Bridge) 8 GB RAM Intel HD Graphics 4000 700 GB Hard Disk previously I had el Capitan and worked perfectly, I used the same config.plist, kext from my el capitan but still no luck. any help will be much appreciated.
  10. Hi folks, does anyone have the talent to see why Antipop doesn't seem to work in macOS Sierra Public Beta? I have used this for several previous OS X versions right up to El Capitan without issue but although it installs ok it has no effect on fixing the "pop" from the speakers if audio isn't used for a while. I have checked the log files and don't see anything like the entries present in El Capitan. AntiPop v1.0.2.dmg
  11. I'm having a problem, when I was installed OS Sierra o my laptop Acer Aspire E5 574G the video is almost ok, just one problem that is when i open the Intellij IDEA or other IDE based on it. the screen start to flick at some points, i don't know if its related to the IDEA or related to JDK, I think is IDE because at Eclipse IDE it isn't happening. other thing is that I see one small area flickering on top left corner.

    AMD Radeon R7 M440

    Hello everyone, I would like to know if my AMD Radeon video card R7 M440 is compatible with the latest version of MacOS Sierra. Thank you.
  14. I warmly welcome Dear Sir, I am very kindly asking for your help. I have information that one person with Dejson username has the same a laptop like my Dell Inspirion N7110 and no hassle displaying artifacts Graphics on the monitor on the Intel HD3000 graphics card. Currently I do not have contact with that person from the forum. I believe that the correct configuration of the video card itself is the key to Eliminate displayed artifacts on the monitor matrix in the card graphic Intel HD3000. I greet Lukas cordially
  15. Hello all, I am attempting my first Hackintosh build on OS X Sierra (10.12.4). While doing so I seemed to have ran into a brick wall. I cant even get the initial setup going to install OS X. It gives a kernel panic every single time. I've tried everything I could think to do to try and fix this, problem is there wasn't really much I could think of besides to format and re-create the Install USB. Below, I will walk you through my hardware and the steps I've taken to reach said kernel panic. This post may be lengthy so, thanks to all that take the time to read it all and offer advice. Advisory: I use the Clover bootloader and Clover Configurator in the steps below. These are a must for me! (Sorry [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] fans) Hardware: Mobo: Asus Z170-Deluxe CPU: i7 6700K RAM: 4x8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti Founder's Edition (Not yet purchased, so not a factor as of now) PSU: Corsair RM750 SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 512GB (yet to be formatted, used in a fully working previous El Capitan Hackintosh build) Install USB: PNY 8GB USB 2.0 thumb drive Current Mac: MacBook Pro 17", Early 2011 Process: Step 1 - Download OS X Sierra from AppStore Note: As you can see from my System Info above, I have an SSD as a startup disk. This SSD is not very large in storage capacity so I use external thunderbolt hard drives to save all of my data. When I downloaded OS X Sierra, it was stored on said external drive. Step 2 - Format USB 1 Partition Named "Installer" OS Extended (Journaled) GUID Partition Table Step 3 - Create Sierra USB Install Drive I was able to easily and successfully complete this step by using Terminal. Since my "Install macOS Sierra.app" wasn't in the default location, I simply had to point to it in the Terminal command. Step 4 - Install Clover Bootloader I used the following customization options when installing Clover Bootloader to my USB: Step 5 - Download kexts and other essential files FakeSMC.kext AppleIntelE1000e.kext VoodooHDA.pkg Clover Configurator.app Nvidia Web Driver Nvidia Cuda Driver Note: Put all these in a folder in the root of the install USB for post-install. Step 6 - Clover Configurator I used the following flags and other options in my Clover config.plist (Most things were left as default, not sure if this is the problem) Step 7 - BIOS Settings I used the BIOS settings in wildwillow's build guide here as reference, since he seemed to have the most similar hardware to me that I could find.

Step 8 - Boot to USB (Kernel Panic) Clover Bootloader comes up fine, and begins to countdown. I selected Boot OS X Install from Install macOS Sierra , then the verbose log began to run. After a few seconds, kernel panic. Here are some pics of panic log(please excuse the dirty monitor...): So this is where I am. I haven't a clue what the problem even is, so I'm not sure how to go about fixing it. It's super frustrating to have almost everything in place, and some unknown error keeps me from just installing OS X. I know my hardware is supported. As stated above, the SSD I am using has been used in a previous Hackintosh build where I used El Capitan. As a test, I did install OS X Sierra on this SSD to see if it was stable. I haven't formatted the drive yet as the kernel panic issue hasn't allowed me to get to Disk Utility. However, I am not sure if that even matters. I am just at wits end and am trying to include every little detail so the experts here can perhaps find a solution for me. Anyway, thanks for reading. Any help offered is greatly appreciated!

  16. Hello everyone! I was stuck in a reboot loop when trying to install the latest El Capitan, so I decided to give macOS Sierra a try. However, I randomly get the message during boot up "error allocating xxx pages at xxx alloc type 2", with osxaptiofix2 (osxaptiofix never worked). And after booting up with nvda_drv=1, the screen always showed weirdly, but the system is fully functional, I can control it via my iMac with screen sharing. I searched through the forum for people using the same gtx 750 ti, but unfortunately, there seems to be none, and most reported working cards come with a 6 pin power connector, which may brick my card if I flash to any of those bios. Any help will be greatly appreciated! config.txt
  17. I installed macOS Sierra on my HP x360 15-u011dx i7-4510u Haskell HD4400. Here are my steps: 1. Create an 8GB macOS Sierra USB installer using Windows 7 2. Create a 500GB USB hard drive for Mac OS X testing all Mac OS X and install macOS Sierra in one 40GB partition. 3. Install macOS Sierra onto the USB drive and make sure everything works or NOT working. Until I get the backlight keys and audio keys to work, I will use the external USB drive to run macOS Sierra. - Patch clover for BCM94352HMB to work. - Use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext to run USB ports without patching anything - All USB ports work even the Bluetooth 4.0 with handoff. - Patch DSDT for battery and Graphics to work perfectly with Rehabman FakePCIIDHD4400_4600.kext FakePCIID.kext. - Get patched Trackpad.prefPane for Trackpad to work. I'll update when something else comes up. Cheers, Louis

    Hi Is someone here which succeeded to install macOS Sierra on this board? Please let me know what settings you made in Clover. The installer boots, and reboots before the all progressbar is finished. Thank you in advance.
  20. Hey All, I'm having some difficulties installing (and booting) macOS Sierra on my computer. I seem to have some weird Kernel Panic that I have never seen before and I have tried a bunch of different boot flags, and different install routes. I also tried installing El Captain but the exact same thing happened. Consider My PC Specs: Acer Aspire T: ATC-605-ER34 Intel i7-4770 Processor Nvidia GT 730 Graphics Card 8 Gigabytes of RAM Both my Sound and Wifi cards are not compatible with Mac OS, so I have external USB adapters for that. My computer is Running 3 Operating Systems: Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite (2 Copies of this, one is an old version I have yet to delete.) Windows 10 Currently, I have Clover as my boot loader and booting I am using the boot flags dart=0 and nv_disable=1 and it is Injecting Nvidia. There is nothing put in the SMBIOS section, other than iMac 14,2 as the product name. I should be able to respond pretty quickly if anyone has any questions. I hope someone can help me out, thanks.
  21. The macOS Sierra was released yesterday, I installed it on a USB hard drive to test with all my Laptops. This one is i5-3317u HD4000 platform. - Use bootdiskutility to create clover folder and partition for 8GB flash drive. UEFI Clover 3761 - Extract and restore the base system to USB hard drive. - Voodoo 2.8.8 for Audio. - Ethernet RT8111. - patch clover for BCM94352 dual band wifi and BT4.0 with handoffs to work. - USBInjectAll.kext for booting from USB (kexts/10.12). - Use Trackpad.Preference.pane from El Capitan for the trackad.preference.pane to work. Cheers, Louis
