    QuickESP is a minimalistic and discreet ESP/EFI Mounter application. It's simple! Click to mount, and re-click to unmount. The Preferences pane enables you to configure the following: Enable Advanced View. Shows additional information about all discovered ESP volumes. This is helpful when you have multiple SSD/HDD installed on your system. Also you will be able to distinguish between drives with identical names. Open ESP folder on Finder. After mounting an ESP volume, its respective folder will open on Finder. This is a convenient time-saver. Autostart. Automatically launch the application on login. Make sure you have copied QuickESP.app into your /Applications folder. Credits: Dennis Koluris (a.k.a Denicio), Rick Patrick for the HDRV icon.

Ciro82==>>Thanks Uno dei tre Requisiti: Hack funzionante Mac vero Macchina virtuale Impostazioni Bios per il boot: Cercate una voce del tipo “Sata Mode”e settatela in AHCI Secure Boot: disabilitare o altri sistemi operativi CSM: UEFI o LEGACY, oppure a secondo del tipo di installazione VT-x / VT-d disable *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI Materiale Occorrente "OS X (Versione App.Store)” USB 8GB *nota: nel caso di usb superiori dovrà essere partizionata, in modo da avere una partizione su cui "lavoreremo,di questa dimensione ShowAllfiles kext Wizard Bootloader Clover_2.3k_r xxx: http: //sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/ Clover Configurator: http: //mackie100proj...a.org/download/ FakeSmc.kext: https://github.com/kozlek/HWSensors/releases In allegato,a fondo pagina troverete un "pacchetto" contenente : ShowAllfiles, Kext Wizard, FakeSmc.kext: App alternative: ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3: Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB. “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE” PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled. PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni Utility Disco Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”. Immagine Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan. Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza. dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni Immagine Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi" Immagine ===================== METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD. Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script Esempio =========================== Metodo 2 L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta con Mavericks. Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso” Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così. Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso. Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”??? Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale. A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio. Comando per creare USB con Yosemite: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con El Capitan sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14) Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO… AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO……………………………………….. COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO. DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI. Immagine Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb. *NOTA*: Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo. Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata ========================= METODO "MANUALE".... (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12) ========================== Bootloader **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in modalità Legacy. Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo Fatto questo dobbiamo installare Clover sulla usb. A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase. Lanciate il pkg. Immagine Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita) Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc" Per Installazione UEFI Mettete i flag : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI : installare Clover nella ESP : Driver64UEFI AptioMemory --> (consigliato) -> Link download Può essere solo aggiunto manualmente scaricando dal link sopra e collocandolo nella rispettiva cartella NOTA: in questo caso non selezionare nessun OsxAptioFixDRV durante l'installazione di clover oppure rimuovetelo successivamente. : Driver64UEFI ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine, *Nota: Altri driver che si possono usare al suo posto sono: informazioni Proseguite con l’installazione. Immagine ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI** =========================== Per installazione Legacy Immagine =========================== Impostazione per config.plist: Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb. 1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI” 2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition” Immagine 3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist 4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2 Immagine 5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1 Immagine 6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67 Immagine 7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES Immagine =========================== Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection) Info: =========================== Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”. Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched Immagine  Per High Sierra: Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo: --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post: Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb Utenti Laptop: Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb -------------------------------------------------------------------- Per Mojave: Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo: --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015 Volete usare HFS? E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti... nel caso guardate... Mojave in HFS Oppure direttamente da usb Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX. ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot...... *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo. Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti) Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26 Post installazione... post #2 Buon Hack…..  Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12) le info le trovate a questo post Ringrazio @Ciro82 che mi ha aiutato nel preparare questa guida.

  11. macOS Catalina 10.15.3 beta (19D49f)
  12. Hi, anyone here got those problems like me ? When I click play, the film load nothing, just show blackscreen like this (attached) or when I download an episode to the computer, it shows error (err = -11800)Anyone here knows a fix ? Maybe a bug or problem from Hackintosh ?
  13. I'm currently running MacOS Catalina 10.15.2 Here's what i need help with: 1. Wifi (which previously worked on Mojave) 2. iMessage 3. FaceTime 4. AirDrop Note: I can't do DSDT patching, tried it many times, and i failed. That's just beyond my capabilities. I really hope someone can help me, i've been busting my head for days. If possible, i would like to avoid bricking my os, because i need it for my job on the day after tomorrow. My RunMe app file: https://mega.nz/#!yxlgiIwR!-XZsreXxNjxjQemXiQia2vcSfITWwr_AVciV2Kdb-ps My specs: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d47b7YXOAitKSYvA9Z6Ojv57ThqXzZxJ/view
  14. macOS Catalina 10.15.2 beta (19C32e)
  15. I successfully installed macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 in UEFI mode on the laptop. I know, there are detailed guides here and on osxlatitude.com but I was not agree with them and carefully check and test every step to tune my Mac. Hardware Intel® Core� i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, speedstep works with Clover default settings Chipset Intel 7 series, no patches needed Video: IntelHD4000 or NVS5200M switchable in BIOS, work in both cases LAN; Intel 82579LM, works with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.2.1 Audio: IDT 92HD93BXX, works with VoodooHDA 2.9.0. SDHC reader O2Micro; works with native AppleSDHC.kext with Clover Arbitrary properties. USB3.0 works natively if not disabled in DSDT PS2 keyboard and touchpad works with VoodooPS2. WiFi: Dell Intel WiFi was replaced by Dell DW1520, Broadcom BCM943224HMS. DeviceID=4353 LCD Screen 1366x768 BIOS A12. Initially was A02. Then I flashed A23 and found it is quite bad. The screen is full of artefacts. Flash A12 and all is OK. Not tested other versions. For some reason BIOS can switched from Intel to Nvidia by itself so I have to do my solution working independent on this state. WiFi It is not working OOB although it has DeviceID known to Apple. The reason is WhiteList in the driver. I set MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 while the WiFi will work on MacBookAir. I make a patch in Clover. As well a patch for channels. I deleted a kext Brcm4331 because it has the same DeviceID. Let kext Brcm4360 to work alone. VideoCards In Bios we can set Optimus = Enable/Disable If Enable then we have two videocards Intel first and Nvidia second. In this case additional SSDT-3.aml will switch off Nvidia. If Disable then we have only Nvidia card. It will work if Board-ID taken from iMac13,2. But here there is contradiction with WiFi with required Board-ID from MacBookAir. So I take MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 which is most close by CPU IvyBridge. Set BoardID like iMac13,2 to make Nvidia working. Patch BoardID in Brcm4360 to make WiFi working. Now I have Inject-> ->Intel=YES ->Nvidia=YES and SSDT-3.aml in ACPI\patched folder. This SSDT will switch off Nvidia if Intel card ON. For Intel graphics there is a patch against 8 apples at start. This Nvidia 5200 is Fermi and works in ElCapitan. Brightness No special kexts. The brightness controlled by keys F1,F2 and slider in Control Panel in both case Intel or Nvidia. Details here #72 DSDT and SSDT This is very long story and finally I have working sleep in both cases Intel or Nvidia. Sensors I use my HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5.2. I got monitoring: CPU temperature GPU temperature GPU main frequency GPU shader frequency Battery state % full, time to charged or time to empty. Battery voltage dinamically. Battery amperage dynamically. I can see it changes on heavy games. HDD temperature. Audio I like VoodooHDA and have no problems with it. The sound is clear, loud, and switchable between internal speaker and headphone. Mic is working. Bluetooth Just tested with BTFirmwareUpdate.kext and it works in 10.11.6. I not needed it so switched off by wireless switch at right side. For 10.13.6 there is other kext BRCMInjector. Keyboard, Touchpad and Touchstick Post #14 I made my fork of the VoodooPS2 driver, take here sources and release version https://github.com/SergeySlice/VoodooPS2-for-ALPS My config, ACPI files and kexts are in attachment. 05.12.2017 EFI.7z EDITED: Better DSDT in the post #6. Sleep working even when AC inserted. EDITED 06.12.2018 Now I have HighSierra and this is my EFI folder. Note, HighSierra is possible only with Intel graphics (Optimus is enabled in BIOS) Welcome to discussion! EFI-E6430.7z BRCMInjector.kext.zip

  17. Here is a new utility to patch the EFI firmware in VMware Workstation and Fusion to allow the non-server versions of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to run. Yoiu will need macOS unlocker 3 if you are using Workstation on non-Apple hardware. I still have to find a way to do this on ESXi as the UEFIPatch utility will not run in the ESXi console. This currently supports: Workstation 11/12/14/15 on Windows and Linux Workstation Player 7/12/14/15 on Windows and Linux Fusion 10/11 on macOS https://github.com/DrDonk/efi-unlocker/releases/download/1.0.0/efi-unlocker100.zip https://github.com/DrDonk/efi-unlocker Please read the readme.txt file for details. readme.txt
  18. So... Here we go again with a new version of macOS and so far I haven't been able to get it booted in VMware Workstation, just curious if anyone else has either. Same old instructions to create a working bootable ISO function (same as Mojave but change the name of the installer app obviously). It won't boot past the Apple logo, can't boot into safe mode, or recovery either. Made several attempts so far to upgrade a clean Mojave VM using the Catalina installer app, still no joy on the reboot, it just hangs on the Apple logo with zero activity (no hard drive, network, nothing at all). Of course Apple has made some changes, so now begins the troubleshooting and scoping out what's changed and how to work around it and get this thing up and running for some mucking around. I suppose this would be a good thread to discuss all this in so, we'll see what happens. ;)
  19. I have been running macOS Mojave on my system for 3 months and everything was working pretty well. After taking an update for clover, my entire system got wrecked, and I cannot even boot to an installation environment anymore (which I really need to do since I am starting back at square one). I still have the old EFI folder backed up, but I know it'll only be a matter of time before Apple introduces an update that requires me to update Clover in order to work correctly. I have tried all the available memory fixes, but none of them seem to work. I was previously using the original osxaptiofix; so, I gave v2, and v3 a try, but to no success. I read somewhere on the main discussion board for clover that AptioMemoryFix was no longer going to be supported and I therefor decided to skip over it (not to mention it isn't even available in newer clover installation packages). System specs: Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 M GAMING CPU Intel core i5 9600k @ stock 3.7GHz RAM 32GB DDR4 2667MHz GPU AMD Radeon RX 580 with 8GB of GDDR5 SSD Intel 660p 512GB NVME NIC: Intel i210 10/100/1000 as it is natively supported in macOS I have been using the iMac 19,1 SMBIOs as I built this machine to match it as close as humanly possible. As for my UEFI settings, I did the usual: Disabled Windows specific features and secure boot Enabled XHCI hand off Enabled Above 4G decoding Disabled onboard NIC since it is made irrelevant by my intel i210 --INJECT KEXTS-- FakeSMC Lilu WhateverGreen AppleALC USBInjectAll -- WITH PATCHED SSDT in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched Below are images of the errors I am receiving when trying to boot the macOS Mojave installer. with original osxaptiomemoryfix osxaptiofixv2 osxaptiofixv3 Anyway, if somebody can help me figure out what's going on, that'd be greatly appreciated. My ultimate goal is to get an install with minimal clover patches as to be better prepared when the winds of change from Apple come roaring. p.s: I have also attached a copy of my EFI folder EFI.zip
  20. Final Build released. Will Nvidia release drivers in the wild? Possible to download full release from macadmins script from this link -> github Open terminal, type sudo and drag drop installinstallmacos.py on it and press Enter. (Noob friendly instructions)
  21. The macOS Mojave final release it's out! Some of the new things on this system. Dark mode:  Desktop Stacks: large.mp4 More improvements with screenshots: large2.mp4 And others very important: Better Control of Your Data Enhanced Tracking Prevention Automatic Strong Passwords As you guys are doing tests with the betas versions, maybe in this version all the things are going to be more stable. Cross your fingers!!

  22. Hello, Here I am looking for the answer of new Mac OS Catalina features and what type of Mac will support this new Os??
  23. macOS Catalina 10.15.1 beta (19B68f)
  24. Version 11.5.0


    This is the current version of VMware Tools for OS X / macOS from the VMware CDS repository for Fusion 11.5.0 VMware are no longer including the ISO images as separate "packages" in the CDS respository as of Fusion 11.5.0, instead the ISO images are included as part of the "core" download which is 522 MB. It is not possible to download the com.vmware.fusion.zip.tar due to upload limits. However, I have extracted the darwin.iso and darwinPre15.iso from the "core" and uploaded to this thread. If you prefer to download the "core" tar file and extract the ISO's they are located in the following directory in the tar file: com.vmware.fusion.zip.tar\com.vmware.fusion.zip\payload\VMware Fusion.app\Contents\Library\isoimages\ Please note: In the latest VMwareGfx.kext from Fusion 8.5.5 onwards VMware have discontinued the 2D-Acceleration code, and graphics performance is better now, thanks to Zenith432 for the update. To check for the latest version visit http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/. The various VMware Tools downloads are located under the packages folder for each version upto and including 11.1.0. Instructions for extracting darwin.iso and darwinPre15.iso - Download the files above - Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar - darwin.iso is located in the "payload" folder - Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwinPre15.zip.tar - darwinPre15.iso is located in the "payload" folder
