  1. Installing macOS® Sierra® on Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 rev 1.0 Intel® Core i7 6700K nVidia® Graphics Maxwell® or Pascal® Disclaimer: This guide will assume that you know what you are doing and also assumes that you have already made a backup of your data before making any changes to your hardware or software. If you have not made a backup STOP HERE! and create one. I will not be held responsible for any data loss or any damage you might cause to your computer in the process of installing macOS® on your computer. By following this guide, you acknowledge that installing Mac OS X® and macOS® on any hardware that is not produced by Apple® is illegal and you will be responsible if you break any laws. All the trademarks and copy rights belong to their respective owners. This guide is only for your personal use and your information, therefore if you break any laws by using this manual you will be responsible for it not me. Any commercial use of the contents of this guide is prohibited. If I forget to mention your name or someone else’s name in the credits section forgive my negligence and feel free to contact me and I will add your name/s. This guide is written specifically for the hardware specifications I’m using, but the principal in general might apply to other hardware with similar specs with the exception of DSDT and SSDT files. Important Notes: 1. Always backup your data before making any changes to your hardware or software. 2. Always keep a bootable Clover USB disk with the latest working configurations just in case. 3. I suggest you use another bootable USB for testing and not to edit the EFI folder on the hard drive. 4. Preferably use the latest BIOS (F21 at the time of writing) version and the latest version of Clover EFI bootloader (4077 at the time of writing). 5. There are two main versions of Clover EFI bootloader available in this package. One for the users with a nVidia GPU and the other one is for the users with IntelHD 530 GPU. 6. So many parts of this tutorial are universal and they apply to all Hackintosh and Apple computers, like creating the Bootable USB disk drive or mounting the EFI partition. So, you can use them on all the computers that run macOS or even use them for installing macOS on other Hackintosh computers. 7. The config.plist, the DSDT.aml file and the SSDT tables are specifically created for the GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 motherboard so do not use them on other hardware because they simply won’t work or even if they do you might experience some problems and errors. 8. This tutorial is based on my personal experience. So, you might need to make some extra adjustments. Downloading the macOS® Sierra installer from App Store: Download the version of macOS® you want to install on your computer from App Store, macOS® Sierra. For downloading the macOS® installer you’ll need an Apple® computer or a working Hackintosh and a valid Apple ID. Although downloading macOS® Sierra® doesn’t require an Apple ID but if you are going to use your Hackintosh for day to day use you’re going to need a valid Apple ID. You can download the macOS® Sierra® installer by using the link below: macOS® Sierra® 10.12.5: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?mt=12&ls=1 You can also use App Store directly for downloading it. The “Install macOS® Sierra.app” will be saved to the following path once downloaded: /Applications/ Creating bootable USB Disk for macOS®: Plug in a USB flash drive (8Gb or larger) and launch disk utility to format the flash drive. To create a bootable USB drive for macOS®, everything must be exactly as shown in the picture below. Once you successfully formatted the flash drive, open Terminal from /Applications/Utilities: Copy and paste the following command into terminal without the “”: For macOS® Sierra®: “sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app —nointeraction” Press return/enter to run the command. You’ll be asked to give your password and once you type your password press return/enter and the process will start. Depending on the speed of the USB drive you are using it will take about 5 to 30 minutes to complete the process. It took about 5 minutes on my computer to create the bootable disk on a USB 3.0 flash drive. How to mount the EFI partition using command line: Launch the terminal application again if you closed it previously. Type “diskutil list” and press return/enter You’ll see list of all the Internal and the external hard drives Type “diskutil mount /dev/diskXsX” and press return/enter First X is the number of the disk and the second X is the number of the partition In this case the command will be: e.g. diskutil mount /dev/disk2s1 Now you can see the EFI partition of disk6 is mounted on the desktop, if you can’t see the partition on the desktop you can find it in finder window’s “Sidebar” under “Devices” BIOS Settings: Now it’s time to configure the BIOS before installing macOS®. First of all, it’s better to “Load Optimized Defaults” settings on the BIOS so we could start from scratch without having any misconfigurations. You need to make the following changes to get macOS® working on your pc: BIOS: Fast Boot = Disabled Windows 8/10 = Windows 8/10 WHQL or Other OS CSM Support = Disabled Secure Boot = Not Active Attempt Secure Boot = Disabled Peripherals Initial Display Output = PCIe 1 Slot (Only If you are using a nVidia GPU, if you are using an AMD GPU you’ll need to enable IGFX and set it to primary in order to boot into macOS® Sierra®) Trusted computing, Security Device Support = Disable Super IO Configuration, Serial IO = Disable USB Configuration, Legacy USB Support = Enabled USB Configuration, XHCI Hand-off = Enabled USB Configuration, USB Mass Storage Drive Support = Enabled USB Configuration, Port 60/64 Emulation = Enabled SATS And RST Configuration = AHCI Chipset VT-d = Disabled (If you need it add “dart=0” flag to config.plist under Boot section) Internal Graphics = Disabled (Only If you are using a discreet GPU if you are using an AMD GPU you’ll need to enable IGFX and set it to primary in order to boot into macOS® Sierra®) In Chipset, IOAPIC 24-119 Entries = Disable If you are using Intel Graphics or IGFX In Chipset, Internal Graphics = Enabled In Chipset, DVMT Pre-Allocated = set it to 64 In Chipset, DVMT Total Gfx Mem = set it to max Save and Exit. Installing Clover EFI Bootloader: In order to boot successfully into macOS® you’ll need to install a Bootloader on the drive you are using as the main bootable device whether is a flash drive or a hard disk drive. There are number of bootloaders that could be used to boot up the macOS® on a PC computer or a Hackintosh but we will only use Clover EFI Bootloader and here is how to properly install and configure Clover EFI Bootloader on your computer. In this section, we will be installing the UEFI version of the Clover so if you are using the Legacy BIOS version for whatever reason this guide is not for you. You can download the latest version of Clover EFI Bootloader from: https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ As I mentioned before in the first page of this manual the latest version of the Clover EFI Bootloader is Clover_v2.4k_4077. Stage 1: Once you have downloaded the bootloader double click the installer package to start the installation process. The process will only take few minutes and after that you need to customize or optimize the contents of the EFI partition which you’ve installed clover into. Please make sure you select the USB drive you created earlier as shown below and not the HDD of the computer you are using. If you see the following dialog after double clicking the installer package, all you need to do is to right click on the Clover_v2.4k_r4077.pkg and from the menu select open and once more click the open button. Click continue and read the “Important Information” or not and then click continue once more. You need to select the location that you want to install Clover EFI Bootloader to. Make sure that you are installing clover to the right location, basically you must choose the drive that you have installed macOS® Sierra® onto unless you want to install the bootloader on another drive, say a flash drive. Now you need to customize which components of the bootloader to be installed, if not you won’t be able to boot into macOS® at all. Check the following items and then click install: 1. Install for UEFI booting only (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) 2. Install Clover in the ESP (EFI System Partition) or (Extensible Firmware Interface System Partition) 3. Install can also choose a theme for your clover bootloader and the CloverThemeManager.app to change or modify the themes later. 4. Install Drivers64UEFI that apply to your system you will need at least these two drivers: 1. EmuVariableUefi-64 2. OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 You can also choose other drivers if they apply to your computer and if you need them, otherwise you’re good to go. 5. You can also install the RC script on the target volume to enable the shell command prompt in clover’s boot screen. Once the installation is started, the EFI partition of the hard disk or USB drive that you are installing clover to will be mounted on the desktop, if you can’t see the partition on the desktop you can find it in the finder window’s “Sidebar” under “Devices” Stage 2: In this stage, you need to configure the config.plist and the other components on the EFI partition either by modifying the config.plist inside the /EFI/Clover/ folder using “TextEdit” or any other text editor application that you like or using “Clover Configurator” (recommended) application which has a GUI for editing the config.plist and it has some other useful built-in apps such as EFI mounter or a Base64 to HEX converter etc. or you can just simply replacing the “Clover” folder with the one that is provided with this guide. At this moment you might not be familiar with all the settings and options inside the config.plist file and Clover Configurator, no need to worry. You can easily replace the whole “Clover” folder inside the “EFI” folder on the EFI partition of your bootable disk (hard disk drive or USB flash drive) with the folder included with this guide and you’ll be good to go as along as your main components specifically your CPU and GPU are the same as mine. Otherwise you might need some additional settings and flags to be added to the config.plist. For instance, if you are using a NVMe SSD disk drive you’ll need to add proper patches in order to get it to work. You can find more about clover and its settings at: https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home and you can find “Clover Configurator” at: http://mackie100projects.altervista.org How to enable kext using Clover EFI Bootloader: In this section I will briefly explain how to install kexts that are needed to make your macOS® work more properly and efficiently. As you know all the hardware components in a computer need a so called “Driver” to operate correctly in the operating system. The same principle applies to macOS® and Mac OS X®. We call them “Kext” files or “Extension” files. By default, Apple provides all the required kext files with the operating system to run on a legitimate Apple computer. On the other hand, on a Hackintosh you need to install some extra kext files created by the community to obtain full functionality of your computer. You can either install them directly to “System/Library/Extensions” folder of macOS® Drive or you can place them into the EFI folder on the EFI partition of your bootable drive, which is a better way because if those files are the modified version of an original kext file that Apple is provided after each major update they will be replaced is the OS and you’ll lose the functionality of that particular component or more components. For example, Maxwell and Pascal GPUs have the “Boot to black screen” issue with some SMBIOS settings like iMac17,1, iMac15 and MacPro 6,1 system definitions. It means if you use one of those system definitions your computer will show a black screen after loading macOS® even after installing the nVidiaWebDrivers. So, you’ll need to either change the SMBIOS definition or you need to patch the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” to avoid the black screen. Once you patch the file with whatever method, if you install macOS® update you’ll need to apply the patch all over again. Besides changing the system files in macOS® will mix up the file permission of the files and if it’s not properly installed or if you forget to fix the permission of the files you might render the whole operating system useless and you’ll need to either fix the permissions on the /System/Library/Extensions or for short /S/L/E or you might need to reinstall the whole operating system from scratch. For each version of macOS®, there is a folder inside the following path: /EFI/Clover/kext/ So, you can copy the kexts you need inside the folder that correlates with the version of macOS® you are using. Even if you update the OS, the files inside that path won’t get changed. How to properly adding kext file to /System/Library/Extensions: There are several ways to install additional kexts on macOS, but I will only discuss two methods that are the easiest ways to install kext without having to type any commands in terminal. Using Kext Utility: By using kext utility you can easily install kext files inside /System/Library/Extension. All you have to do is to open the Kext Utility app, type in your password and drag the kext file you want to install into the app’s window and it will install them in to the path give above. The good thing about this app is that it will automatically repairs the permission of the /System/Library/Extension folder and the kext files inside it. Once the process is done you can reboot the system and see the results. Kext Wizard: Kext wizard is another handy tool with more functions built into it, you can select the path for installing the kexts files even to another operating system on another volume. You can repair the permissions and rebuild system kext cache. You can even load kexts files and test them or list the kext that are already loaded in the system. Post Installation: To have a fully functional Hackintosh you need to add the following kext files and DSDT/SSDT files and tables. Kexts: FakeSMC.kext https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-fakesmc-kozlek/downloads/ Audio: AppleALC.kext https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverALC Lilu.kext https://github.com/vit9696 CodecCommander.kext v2.4.0 for Audio after sleep https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-eapd-codec-commander/downloads/RehabMan-CodecCommander-2015-0522.zip Note: Install CodecCommander.kext v. 2.4.0 inside /System/Library/Extensions/ and set darkwake=8 in config.plist to solve the audio after sleep issue. I tried installing it inside /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12 and /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other and it didn’t work. I also tried other versions of CodecCommander.kext but none of them worked except for the v. 2.4.0. If you don’t want to use Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext and see the read the “Other methods for activating audio section”. realtekALC.kext with https://github.com/toleda/audio_RealtekALC/blob/master/audio_realtekALC-120.command.zip audio_cloverHDMI-120_v1.0d.command for HDMI Audio: https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverHDMI/blob/master/audio_cloverHDMI-120.command.zip Ethernet: AppleIntelE1000e.kext https://sourceforge.net/projects/osx86drivers/files/Kext/Snow_or_Above/AppleIntelE1000e.kext.zip/download or IntelMausiEthernet.kext https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-intel-network/downloads/RehabMan-IntelMausiEthernet-v2-2017-0321.zip Graphics: IntelGraphicsFixup.kext https://sourceforge.net/projects/intelgraphicsfixup/ if you are using the Intel Integrated Graphics Lilu.kext https://github.com/vit9696 NVidaiGraphicsFixup.kext https://sourceforge.net/projects/nvidiagraphicsfixup/ USB 3.0 USBInjectAll.kext https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-usb-inject-all/downloads/RehabMan-USBInjectAll-2017-0517.zip Note: I also tested the system without USBInjectAll.kext and all my USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports were fully functional so it’s up to you whether to use it or not. VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Before you start using macOS® Sierra®, you need to change the SMBIOS of the config.plist: You have to change the SMBIOS settings before starting to use macOS® Sierra®, because the config.plist that is included in this guide doesn’t have a serial number for your Hackintosh, so you won’t be able to use any of Apple’s services without a serial number and a hardware UUID. It’s imperative to do so specially if you are going to use your Hackintosh for daily use. If you don’t change the serial number you won’t be able to use App Store, iCloud, iMessage etc. It’s highly recommended that you use iMac 17,1 SMBIOS as your default. iMac 17,1 and iMac 17,2 models use Skylake processors in Apple's original iMacs. For changing the SMBIOS you can use the built-in wizard inside “Clover Configurator” under SMBIOS Section. To open the wizard, click the small magic wand on the right side of the window to use the wizard. Audio: By using the EFI folder included with this guide and by using the patched DSDT/SSDT tables, “AppleALC.kext” and “Lilu.kext” you won’t need to do much to make the audio active on your Hackintosh. Just install the macOS® Sierra®, copy the EFI folder and audio is activated by default, HDMI audio will be active once you install nVidiaWebDrivers and restart the computer. If the audio didn’t work, you can rebuild prelinked kernel and kexts cache by using the following commands in terminal: 1. sudo nvram -c 2. sudo purge 3. sudo rm -f /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache && sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force Or you can use “Kext Utility” to repair permissions on /System/Library/Extensions and /Library/Extensions and also it will also rebuilds the system cache for you. Kext Utility could be found at: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=186603 Note: If you see the following output in terminal it means that you forgot to mount the EFI partition, mount it and run the command again. Other methods for activating the Audio: 1. audio_codecdetect.command This command will give you useful information about the audio chipsets and devices that are available on the system, after you run the command, the output will be like this: This means that the audio chipset is supported and you can go to the next step of installing the audio using Toleda's scripts. 2. audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0f3.command Type in the password and press return/enter All you need to do now is to reboot the system and you’ll have audio! 3. HDMI Audio For activating the HDMI Audio for you need to run audio_cloverHDMI-120.command This command will detect the audio codec for you integrated graphics and discrete GPU and will add the proper SSDT table to /EFI/Cover/ACPI/patched folder Audio Troubleshooting: If after running the audio_cloverHDMI-120_v1.0d.command you see the following statement It means you either don’t have a patched DSDT.aml file or SSDT tables and no patches are present inside the config.plist so you need to either add the DSDT/SSDT tables or add patches yourself. Don’t be alarmed it’s so easy. Open clover configurator and after mounting the EFI partition, open the config.plist and add the following patch : Under ACPI, DSDT patches select “change HDAS to HDEF” from “List of Patches” and this will add the following code in the config.plist </dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change HDAS to HDEF</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> SERBUw== </data> <key>Replace</key> <data> SERFRg== </data> </dict> or Comment: change HDAS to HDEF Find*[HEX] 48444153 Replace*[HEX]48444546 Graphics: This section will be dedicated to nVidia GPUs specially Maxwell and Pascal. If you are using any other nVidia or AMD graphics you can skip this section. We tested these instructions on an EVGA 1070 Superclocked GPU and a Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX960 GAMING-4GB (Please include the brand for reference). As you might know the 10 series nVidia GPUs or Pascal are not compatible with Mac OS X El Capitan and earlier versions of macOS® but 9 series and Maxwell are compatible and they both need nVidiaWebDrivers to be fully functional. For macOS® Sierra® 10.12.5 you’ll need to download 378.05.05.15f01 https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/378/WebDriver-378.05.05.15f01.pkg Solution 1: If you are looking for an easy way to get the GPU working all you have to is to copy the Lilu.kext and nVidaiGraphicsFixup.kext inside the kext folder in clover EFI bootloader. The full path is /EFI/Clover/kext/10.12 Once you finished installing macOS® and nVidiaWebDrivers you’ll need to add the following flags and setting to the config.plist Under “Boot” section add or remove nvda_drv=1 if necessary. I don’t need to use it on my computer. You don’t need to inject anything in “Graphics” section Under “System Parameters” check “NvidiaWeb” When installing Clover EFI bootloader under “Drivers64UEFI” install “EMUVariableUefi-64” // I also use OsxAptioFix2Drv.efi, never tested without it. and that’s it! Solution 2: If you don’t want to use nVidaiGraphicsFixup.kext you only have two options: 1. Run AGDP-fix.app to edit the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” to fix “Boot to Black Screen” issue 2. Or you can edit the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” manually using terminal. If you choose the second solution for any reason remember after each major update you need to apply the patch all over again. Wi-Fi: TP-Link WDN4800 works out of the box without any hassle. The only problem that you might encounter with it is "ATHR: unknown locale: 21" error in the verbose boot. The Atheros patch is to avoid the series of "ATHR: unknown locale: 21" messages in the verbose boot which they will be registered in message console's logs and they will make the log file bigger. The patch will fix the WiFi location and will stop the error and therefore there will be no more logs. Without the patch, the WiFi will work just the same but with lots of messages in the log. If you don’t use the TP-Link WDN4800 you can remove the patch or simply leave it as disabled. USB 3.0: Under Kernel and Kext Patches add the following to “KextsToPatch”: This patch will raise the limit of the USB ports from 15 to 26. For macOS® Sierra Name*: AppleUSBXHCIPCI Find* [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff10 Replace [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff1b Comment: Raise change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series) MatchOS: 10.12.x You also might need to add RehabMan’s “USBInjectAll.kext” to the following path under “/EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12” for macOS® Sierra Note: If you are using a patched DSDT or SSDT tables you don’t need to use any DSDT patches in clover and the “USBInjectAll.kext” you will have full functional USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. I didn’t test USB 3.1 ports because I have no USB 3.1 device to test it! The port limit patch must only be temporary, you will need to create your own custom SSDT-UIAC to only inject the ports you use. Custom SSDT-UIAC: A quick rundown on how to create a custom SSDT-UIAC. Add the following patch to your config.plist if you don’t already have the patch. <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)</string> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.12.x</string> <key>Name</key> <string>com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////Gw==</data> </dict> or Name*: AppleUSBXHCIPCI Find* [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff10 Replace [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff1b Comment: Raise change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series) MatchOS: 10.12.x The USBInjectAll.kext provided in this guide needs to be and stay installed. Download ioregistryexplorer Version 3.0.3 from http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/IORegistryExplorer.shtml or download IOJones which is an alternative to IORegistryExplorer at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/iojones/ Download MaciASL from https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-maciasl-patchmatic/downloads/RehabMan-MaciASL-2017-0117.zip and extract, drag MaciASL.app into /Applications. (Credit RehabMan) Download OS-X-USB-Inject-All Master from: (Credit RehabMan) https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All/archive/master.zip and extract the zip file. Inside the OS-X-USB-Inject-All-master folder you will find SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl, copy it to your desktop. Open ioregistryexplorer and find your device id by typing XHC in the search field. Open SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl with MaciASL and find your appropriate device id section. Remove all other sections in the SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl that do not correspond with your device id leaving just the one section. Skylake does not have a EHCI controller so “HUB1”, ”HUB2”, ”EH01”, "EH02" can be removed and in my case I can also remove "8086_1e31", "8086_8xxx", "8086_9xxx", "8086_9cb1", "8086_9d2f" and "8086_a2af". Compile the file to make sure there are no errors in the code and then save the file with “ACPI Machine Language Binary”. Now we turn our attention to ioregistryexplorer, while you have ioregistry open go to the XHC section and take note of the HSxx or SSxx locations that have devices attached. Now plug in a USB 2.0 device into all USB 2.0 you NEED and do the same with USB 3.0 ports with USB 2 and 3 devices and take note of them all. Returning back to the SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl you will see all ports listed, you need to remove the ones you did not take note of and you can also add a comment to the ones you keep. UsbConnector values = USB 2.0 = 0, USB 3.0 = 3. Internal = 255 USB 2.0 devices plugged into USB 3.0 ports HSxx are still marked as USB 3.0 = 3. Internal devices such as Bluetooth etc are marked as 255 Once you gone through and done this to all the devices you need and removed the ones you don’t you can save your SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl in MaciASL. Make sure you rename it to SSDT-UIAC and that the file format is ACPI Machine Language Binary Copy and paste the resulting SSDT-UIAC.aml into your EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder. Disable the port limit patch in config.plist and add SSDT-UIAC.aml into SortedOrder if needed. Reboot. Open ioregistryexplorer and test the ports you left enabled USB 2 & 3. The number of ports you should see in ioreg should be significantly reduced as they are not being injected anymore.

  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. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Toshiba Satellite L755-1J2 laptop computer with the following specs. • Intel Core i7 (2nd Gen) 2670QM / 2.2 GHz • 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM • Western Digital 250GB HDD • NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M - 2 GB DDR3 SDRAM • Mobile Intel HM65 Express • Atheros AR9285 wifi+bt 3.0 2. Download OS X Sierra • Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. • Once macOS Sierra is downloaded, close the install pop-up that appears using Command (⌘)+Q. • The application INSTALL macOS Sierra will appear in /Applications • Done! 3. Prepare bootable USB Installer Note on flash drives: You will need a USB flash drive to make this work. Your USB should be at least 8G. Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will delete everything on the drive. • Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents. • Open Contents - Resources. • Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal. • In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space. • Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window. • Type --volume followed by a space. • Connect your USB drive and drag the USB drive into the Terminal Window.• Type --applicationpath in the Terminal followed by a space. • Open Finder - Applications and drag the Install macOS Sierra into the Terminal Window. • Press Return on the keyboard to submit the full command. • Type a 'Y' to continue when prompted to do so, and press Return on your keyboard • The install process will begin by erasing the contents of your USB disk and copying the installer files to the USB disk.

  4. 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.
  5. Ciao tutti mi scuso per il disturbo. il mio laptop con macos sierra sta dando parecchi problemi di performance, io produco musica al pc, il software che uso è logic pro. appena apro il sofwatre la ram si riempie quasi tutta rallentando globalmente il sistema e appena provo ad utilizzare qualsiasi plugin il pc si blocca e poi il sofware va in crash. Ho anche notato che ultimamente la ram tende a riempirsi anche durante le operazioni piu semplici come vedere un video su youtube o navigare su internet, sto pensando di retrocedere a windows anche se mi dispice e sarebbe un lavoro assai lungo. note extra: 1) Il mio laptop ha il dual boot con windows 10 pro 2) Il mio pc ha sempre avuto problemi di instabilita con windows 10 pur essenso l'os originalmente installato, mi è stato consigliato di passare a windows vista e aggiornarlo con gli official e unofficlal updates per renderlo agibile con le apps piu moderne anche se non sono convinto 3) vi lascio tutte le info e le caratteristiche. grazie Isach @gengik84 @MARZILLO @iCanaro Sistema operativo Mac osx sierra 10.12.6 Modello laptop : Asus N551jx-cn043t (2015) Il resto è nella screen questo è lo staso della memoria senza nessuna app aperta a parte google non so se vanno bene ma ho inserito anche queste screen

  12. 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
  13. 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

  16. 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. Ai Tweaker > DRAM Frequency > Set to your choice of frequency depending on the memory. Advanced > System Agent (SA) Configuration > VT-d Disabled Advanced > (SA) Configuration > Graphics Configuration > Primary Display > PEG Advanced > (SA) Configuration > Graphics Configuration > IGPU Multi-Monitor > Disabled Advanced > USB Configuration > XHCI Handoff > Enabled Boot > CSM (Compatibility Support Module) Launch CSM > Enabled Boot > CSM > Boot Device Control > UEFI and Legacy OPROM Boot > CSM > Boot from PCI-E/PCI Expansion Devices > UEFI driver first Secure Boot > OS Type > Other OS Secure Boot > Delete all keys under Key Management (4 in total) Boot option #1 > UEFI macOS installation USB Press F10 and save the changes to the BIOS. 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!

    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.
  19. I am running Mac OS Sierra on Dell e5430 with 4 GB Ram and Intel HD 4000. Whenever i try to run it on CstActiveConfig 0x3 (only allowing unsigned kext) it shows some memory error and restarts. I want to run it on 0x3 to avoid permission corruption that usually occurs on 0x67 due to some softwares. I use OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi because OsxAptioFixDrv2-64.efi does not work at all.
  20. Alright, so I've been able to find guides for laptops similar to mine, but none that are PRECISELY for the Lenovo Thinkpad T440. Not the S model, but just the T440. I manged to pick this laptop up for a sweet deal on eBay, and i'd like to run MacOS on it if possible. Would it be fine to try a VM then try installing for real later? I have Windows 10 with a key already installed MBR/CSM Style and would like to keep it on here, if at all possible, but I could wipe it if necessary to do a UEFI boot. I initially wanted to try Sierra, but it seems Sierra is relatively undocumented for any similar thinkpad. My specs are as follows: Intel Core i5-4200U @ 1.6GHz, turbo boosts up to 2.3 Ghz 4GB Ram (going to another 4gb dimm) 500GB HDD (will eventually add a m.2 ssd later for macOS if it can be installed Thats about all the important specs, I think. If theres anything else necessary, I'd be glad to list it. (: I did manage to make an installer and boot it Legacy style into Sierra but the trackpad and keyboard didn't respond. It also took awhile to get to the installer. Is there a way I can Install to a USB or something to test it, or is a VM the best way to go about it for a test run? Thanks. Sorry for rambling.
  21. 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.

  25. 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.
