  1. ===STATUS QUO=== E3 1230v2 + Asrock Z77 Pro4 (with mod bios for NVMe boot) + Samsung PM981 SSD via M.2-PCIe X4 card GPT structure sequence: ESP - MSR - Space Reserved for Hackintosh - Windows 10 Windows 10 1803 has been successfully installed using dsim and bcdboot (installer can't pass due to NTFS-EFI issue, don't know why) and CloverEFI r4630 has been copied to the ESP on SSD (with the same drivers, kexts and config.plist capable of building hackintosh on the same machine prior to the use of NVMe SSD, some minor issues of sleeping and hibernation existing though). And I can boot into windows via this clover with no trouble. The USB Installer of macOS High Sierra (10.13.6) has an identical set of EFI on the flash drive. ===ISSUES=== PM981 NVME SSD can be recognized no matter nvmexpressdxe.efi is put in the driver64uefi folders or not. However, it's recognized as external drives by the Disk Utility even if I applied the Piker R. patch#external as instructed in his blog. After booting into the macOS installer and the first round of installation being finished (I think it's meant to copy the BaseSystem to the dest. drive),the installer restarts the computer and then into clover. Some extra icons would have shown themselves at the clover startup screen as expected, including Preboot Installer (or something alike, I just can't remember clearly) leading to the ensuing installation, which was always the case previously when I built hackintoshes without this M.2-PCIe NVMe SSD. Unfortunately, no additional icons appear at Clover startup screen this time. There's only the same icon leading to macOS installer before the BaseSystem was copied to the dest. drive. If I click this icon, the same BaseSystem installation just occurs once again and again... So anyone comes up what's gone wrong here and offers help please?
  2. While not exactly a hackintosh, I'm running a 2009 4.1 Mac Pro flashed to 5.1. NVMe drives seem to be supported natively now. Previously I had to use pikemanalpha's script to generate a custom kext in 10.12. This beta sees both my AHCI Samsung 951 and my NVMe version as well.
  3. Hi I am try to install High Sierra, as per ##### I have have successfully booted from the install usb drive and have booted into "Install macOS High Sierra". I had to add a boot flag (-no_compat_check) to the clover bootloader in order for the usb stick to boot properly. Also, at first I couldn't see the SSD drive in disk utility, but I fixed that by asking disk utility to show all drives. Onto the current problem. I am having major issues trying to install High Sierra to a NVMe SSD. When I run "Install macOS High "Sierra" I get the following error: "The version of macOS installed on this mac is newer than the version you are trying to install. When a new update is available, you can install it from the Updates plane in the Mac App Store. If you want to reinstall macOS, please use macOS recovery." Also, It doesn't matter if the startup volume is formatted as APFS or HFS+. If I format the drive using GPARTED on linux, the installer just says the startup volume doesn't have journaling enable. If I then run disk utility and enable journaling on the startup volume, then go back to the installer, I get the aforementioned error msg. I have the following specs: i9-7900. Asus Prime X299 Deluxe. ADATA 512GB NVMe SSD. How do I fix this issue?
  4. Hello! My internal SSD lifetime is running out so I'm thinking how to upgrade it. I don't want to replace it with slow Sata SSD so I want to buy OWCMercury Helios and install new nvme fast ssd, but I won't be able to boot from it using standard boot loader.... Is it possible to boot nvme ssd using Clover on real iMac?
  5. Hi, I've got the intel 600p M.2 1024gb ssd and installed it as a second drive. High sierra 10.13.3 become very slow and even unresponsive when I copy a large amout of data to it - the more data copied, the slower it is and I see the kernel task consuming cpu, but not too much - about 70-80%. After 100-200 gb the whole system hangs and I see nothing in the logs (probably I just don't realize what shall I look for). It has 512 bytes sector size and, as Intel said, it cannot be changed. Not sure it is the source of the problem, but anyway - is it possible to use it with high sierra 10.13.3 at all? Thank you!
  6. Hey guys! Running into some problems with my x99 build and hoping someone can help:) I've been following a mix of x99 guides (found both here and tonymacx86) to no success thus far. The furthest I have gotten is a hang up on AMFILoad after [ PCI Configuration Begin ] as seen below Obviously the first error is that it hangs on AMFILoad. I haven't had much luck in finding out what I need to change/fix to get past this. The other error is "Unsynchronized TSC for CPU" (also seen in that screenshot). That one seems more likely to be an issue with the VoodooTSCSync kext but I'm not quite sure why as I have literally just used someone else's (successful) voodoo kext who modified it for the i7 6950x (which is the processor I have) using @Brumbaer's patch where you simply change the IOCPUNumber to 19 (10 cores, 20 threads, subtract 1 from 20 to get the 19) in the kext. I also have a successful Windows 10 boot on a different SSD so I extracted the DSDT.bin and SSDT.bin with RW Everything, converted them to DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml and placed them in the EFI>CLOVER>ACPI>patched folder. Currently, I'm also running it with 1 single 16 GB stick of RAM (and not the full 96 GB of RAM). Additionally, I have tried various usb sticks and usb ports with no additional success. Any and all help would be much appreciated on this issue as I'm pretty much totally stuck Let me know if there is any additional information I can provide or upload, etc.
  7. Hey all! The Macbook Pro I used as my main computer is on its last legs, so I decided to cobble together some components I had from other builds into a “new” Windows machine. Thing is, even with some settings modifications and tools like RocketDock, I still miss the behaviors and aesthetic of my Mac ;c So, I’ve decided to pursue grabbing a new cpu/mobo/ram combo and building a Hackintosh/Windows hybrid machine. I had a couple questions regarding my boot drive, though. 1. If the motherboard I select supports booting from an NVMe/PCIe M.2 SSD, can I boot macOS High Sierra from it? Will it necessitate a tool like Clover to do so? (I'm currently eyeing the ASRock Z270M Pro4, if that's relevant) 2. If I partition this drive into two parts, can I format them separately for each OS- e.g. HFS+ on one half for macOS, NTFS or exFAT for Windows on the other? If not, can macOS be installed on an exFAT drive?
  8. Pessoal estou tomando um baile na tentativa de fazer meu hack. Minha mobo é uma Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 (conforme minha assinatura). Possuo 02 x SSD M.2 950 Pro NVMe onde num deles tenho o Win10 instalado e no outro obviamente eu quero instalar o Sierra 10.12.3 (que foi o que baixei da App Store). Segui o tutorial daqui na criação do pendrive e tal mas estou tendo erro. Me disseram que eu tinha que remover da instalação a kext IONVMeFamily.kext na pasta system/library/extensions, o que eu fiz, e incluir na pasta das kexts do Clover (Other) a kext HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_3.kext Mas só está dando erro e por isso peço ajuda aqui pois sou totalmente novato no assunto. As Kexts que eu tenho no Clover são: FakeSMC.kext USBInjectAll.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_3.kext e o erro que está dando é esse:

  10. Hi, Just put together my first hackintosh using this: Asus Strix H270F GAMING Intel Core i7 7700K Samsung SSD 960 Evo .M2 Gigabyte AORUS GeForce® GTX 1070 8G 2x Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR4 1x288, 2400MHz I'm using this guide to get High Sierra installed as it is close to my motherboard (Z270 vs mine H270): I also used the downloadable EFI folder attached to that video. When I get to the point where I open Disk Utility, my disk isn't detected. BIOS detects and identifies it ok, so it seems to be connected alright. I've also tried to move it from the x4 PCI .M2 port to the x2 one with the same result. Anyone who can suggest anything to get me moving forward ? Let me know if there's more information needed to figure out what's wrong. Forgot to mention that this is a completely new build, so the disk hasn't been partitioned or anything like that. I assume that Disk Utility should take care of that (once it can find it) Cheers, Niklas
  11. macOS 10.13.2 Specs: ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac Intel i7-8700K 3.7GHz G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory Crucial MX300 275GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050Ti Corsair SF 450W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply Clover EFI folder Working: - Computing things - Sound - Sleep - Graphics - Ethernet - APFS - SMBIOS iMac 19,1 Not working: - Bluetooth/WiFi (did not buy a chip) - High Sierra not recognizing i7-8700K as a CPU (see last photo attachment). I've seen others post screenshots of their 8700K being recognized, but mine didn't end up that way and I dunno why. Regardless, everything seems to work fine so far. Ran Valley, did some coding, etc. See GitHub repo for full config details. Successfully upgraded to APFS post-install.
  12. Specifications Asus Z170 Premium Skylake i-6600K Nvidia GTX 960 Samsung 850 EVO 256 GB x 2 Samsung NVMe 950 Pro 256 x 1 G.Skill 32 GB 3000 MHz RAM 8 x 4 Samsung UHD monitor 4K@60Hz x 2 Let me start by answering these questions first. What is working? Graphics 4K @60 Hz Audio Bluetooth NVMe 1 Ethernet port WiFi including 5GHz (this was the best part) USB 3.1, 3.0, 2.0 All the front ports Audio, USB 3.0 x 2 AirPlay, AirDrop, iCloud, Continuity, Handoff, Facetime, iMessages, Appstore What else.... What is not working? There is only one small intermittent glitch with the 4K @ 60Hz. Sometimes, the computer boots into a black screen (no kernel panic). Just the monitors lose display port signal and they go to sleep mode. The fix: well, I just turn the settings to Display Port 1.1 in my monitor's settings before the system starts to boot. Once it boots, I just turn the setting back to DP version 1.2 in the monitor settings. I couldn't get iMac 17,1 SMBIOS to work . It gives me a black screen. 1 Ethernet port. AppleIGB was giving kernel panics. But I am using only one port anyways, so I don't care about this one. Attached Files Files to replace in EFI.zip : this contains the files from my EFI. It has a patched DSDT, patched kernel kexts for IOAPIC and USB, kexts, config and the 64BitUEFI drivers. Steps Follow the official guide for Sierra Public beta word to word step by step and get the USB ready with clover and the FakeSMC kext. Mount the EFI of USB using EFI Mounter v3. See the attached zip file "Files to replace in EFI.zip" and replace the files in USB's EFI with the ones in zip file. This will set up your SMBIOS to iMac 14,1. This is all you need to get started with the installation. Plug the USB in the USB 2.0 port (the green and red ports in the back). Turn on the computer and go to BIOS. Enter Advanced settings and load optimized defaults. Change the Secure Boot to Other OS Disable IOAPIC under PCH System Configuration. Set the Boot device under Boot tab to your USB EFI. Don't change the boot device by pressing F8. It always gave me the low memory error. Set the USB as first boot device in the boot order. This will get you started with installation. Once the installation is finished, WiFi should be working out of the box. Get the latest clover from sourceforge and install it like you did when creating the USB. I did not use any post installation utility because I wanted to understand how stuff works. Mount the EFI USB using EFI Mounter V3 and copy all the contents on your desktop. UNMOUNT IT AND REMOVE THE USB Mount the EFI of your HDD and replace the contents with the ones you copied on your desktop. This is all you need for a bare minimum setup of Sierra. Check if you can boot without the USB. Now lets get other stuff fixed. Get the KCPM Utility 6 first to manage kexts. Display-NVidia Get the latest web driver from NVidia's website. Install it and reboot. Audio I tried to use ALC1150 from toleda for Sierra but it did not work. So I installed the good old VoodooHDA. Download, install and reboot and the audio should be up. Ethernet The motherboard has 2 ethernet ports. I tried to use AppleIGB.kext but it gave me kernel panics again and again. So I used AppleIntelE1000E.kext . Install using the KCPM and rebuild the cache. Reboot and you have 1 ethernet port without kernel panic. I didn't bother about the other port Bluetooth Get the Bluetooth kext from here and install using KCPM. Rebuild the cache, reboot and voila you have bluetooth. NVMe I used Rehabman's NVMe patch from github. The instructions are very simple and available in the read me. Once you have the new kext created, install it using the KCMP. DON'T REBOOT. First delete the IONVMeFamily.kext (see the read me too) from /System/Library/Extensions. Rebuild cache and reboot. Appstore Fix This was a new problem. Appstore won't let me login. This was easy to fix. Remove all the network cards from system preferences. Then go to /Library/Preferences/System Configuration and delete the network plist. Reboot. Add the Ethernet card first in the system preferences. Make sure you add the Ethernet card as En0. Add WiFi and thats it. Important: I spent nights trying to solve the low memory error. It sometimes worked and suddenly it would give me the error again. What fixed this was setting the boot device order and putting USB on top instead of changing the boot device on the fly as I mentioned in the steps above. This is weird, I know. But it worked. I tried atleast 10 times to make sure that this was the cause/fix and it worked. Enjoy your Sierra! Files to replace in EFI.zip

  14. Hi, i have a little old mobo with socket 1156 no Sata 3 - biostar tpower i55 and i Was wondering if i had some chance to install a new nvme memory like Intel 760p. Due lack of support by my mobo i found a Pci Express card lycom dt-120 to expand my connectivity. After some researches i understood that i need a ‘bios support for the boot from nvme disk’. I want some of these nvme memory to install high Sierra and get a killer desktop. I think that i haven’t obviously a native bios support cause my mobo is pretty old, so i can’t get an nvme disk and install properly high Sierra hoping that boot? Or should i catch anyway? I Guess that same problem is for w10? Thanks, Gabriele.

  16. Hi friends, I just got a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe SSD (500 gb). I put it in my Asus X99-A M.2 slot and it won't even show up in BIOS settings. I have the most current BIOS version installed (3402 as of today). It's not showing up anywhere. When i put my Samsung XP951 in the M.2 slot it works just fine, but the 960 Evo won't. I also tried 2 separate 960 Evos, bc i thought the first one was defective. Any insights?
