  1. Hi, i'm having trouble with my TC Electronic PCI cards being recognised on restarting the system (or sleep/wake) on 10.9.4. They just come up as "unrecognized device" whereas after a full power cycle they appear and work fine. I've done an AICPM patch and have generated an unedited SSDT which seems to have fixed a lot of my sleep issues and I can now mostly sleep/wake fine (ethernet works, audio works, dual monitor works). It's just this card that I'm having issues with currently. I built my hackintosh to run Logic with these cards so really keen to fix this issue (I can work around it with a power cycle but not ideal) Don't really know where to start. Don't understand DSDT editing at all. any advice would be greatfully appreciated and I'm sure it would help a lot of other musicians! thanks J Motherboard; Asus P8B75-V CPU: i7 3770 GPU: Zotac GT210 System: 10.9.4 from app store + myHack

    Atheros 5005G/AR2413 in ML

    Hello! I have a Belkin F5D7000 v.5100 wireless G PCI card. The device/vendor ID is 168c,1a. I've added my device ID in IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AtherosAirPort40.kext/Content/Info.plist and tried various other kexts around the Internet but nothing will allow Mountain Lion to detect the card. I have an Asus P8Z77-V LK mobo and did a DSDT-less installation. What else can I try to get this card detected? Edit: I installed the AtherosFix.kext that's floating around, I've now got the wifi icon in the top right, but it says "Wifi: no hardware detected" and wifi does not show up in System Preferences -> Network.
  3. Hello, I am trying to install Mavericks on an old Shuttle SN21G5 with the following setup (as more of an experiment than anything, really; I know the hardware is outdated): CPU: 2.4ghz AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Graphics: GPU 0, Currently hosting DVI monitor: 128MB nVidia Geforce 6600 GT (DVI, VGA, S-Video Out) GPU 1, 256MB built-in nVidia GeForce 6100 (VGA Out) RAM: 1GB DDR 333mhz (Using workaround for install until I can purchase more) When booting from a USB drive that has niresh's Mavericks (10.9.0, I believe), I previously got the [PCI Configuration Begin] hang. I fixed that by using either the 'pci=off' or 'pci=acpi' flag. Now, it gets a single line past that and says 'console 1024 x 768 @ 0xd0000000'. Then, the disk light stops blinking, and, after some time, the metal flash drive cools off. This means it's not reading, so therefore not booting from it. From the few threads I've found about this, it seems like it's still related to PCI, though I may be wrong. However, I cannot install any kexts that could possibly fix this error. If my computer doesn't use Extensions.mkext, and boots with the S/L/E folder myfix made (and I extracted Extensions.mkext into), it causes this kernel panic (Click for larger): I also cannot rebuild the mkext, because it gives this (sorry about the gray text, it's from yesterday's session): The only kext that gets added is myHack.kext. Also, here is a picture of the current hang. Thanks, and any help is appreciated.
  4. First I would like to thank you guys for the great community and perfect source of the informations. After a lot of struggle i've finally manage to turn this server mobo into great and powerful macpro rig. (smbios - MacPro 5,1) It runs sierra 10.12.12 with no errors but there is one strange catch. This mobo has 7 pcie slots, but only first - bottom three actually works !? dpcimanager don't recognise any of the pcie cards inserted into other / upper 4 pcie slots. (pretty sure that bios settings are correct, and these cards works withouth any problem under windows) I'm using dsdt (there's no way to boot macos installation or the system without one) ** quick example - kt4006 usb 3.0 card (which works oob with 10.12.12) works just fine when is inserted into 3rd pcie slot from the bottom, but doesn't work if it is inserted in any of 4 upper - marked with red - pcie ports.... Basically with this I just want to confirm that the problem is not about pcie cards and specific driver / settings related to them.. it is about slots. Maybe a few of the initial problems i had with this mobo could be a good clue... After successful sierra installation os recognized 12 cpu threads instead of 24, and 16 gb of ECC Ram instead of 32. Cpu cores / threads problem is fixed by adding extra cpus in my dsdt file and ram problem by adding proper slot info via clover configurator. Now both memory and cpu cores works perfectly.

  5. So after searching around on & off for 2 days with hardly any results, I thought it would be really convenient to have a list of laptop PCIe half mini cards that would be Lion-compatible. I currently have a thinkpad W520 and looking to swap the one in there (I think it's a realtek). From the looks of this: http://www.notebookreview.com/shared/picture.asp?f=58155 it doesn't look like it would take any other style of card. Any suggestions or successful attempts, please leave em here!
  6. Okay So I have two PCIe controller cards, both 3rd party, unbranded from eBay. 1st runs off the Marvell 88SE92xx chipset. 4 Internal Ports. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PCI-E-PCI-Express-to-SATA3-0-4Port-SATA-III-6G-Expansion-Controller-Card-Adapter/264029216955?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 2nd runs off the ASMedia ASM1061 chipset. 2 Internal/ 2 External Ports (selectable by jumpers) https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PCI-E-To-SATA3-PCI-E-SATA3-0-6Gb-s-the-SSD-Asmedia-Chip-Expansion-Card-ASM1061/191572577652?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 The hack is running stable no issues on 10.4.2 with an i7 8700k ASUS Maximus X Code as iMac 18,3 However, I wanted to add eSATA ports for some older drive enclosures I own, and some extra internal SATA ports as I've used all the SATA ports on the Motherboard. The 1st Marvell actually works OOB in Mac OSX. No kexts needed. Speeds seem good (350R/400W on an SSD 80R/W on a 5400 HDD) However, a few things don't seem perfect. 1) the AHCI version is 1.0. I imagine this could and should be a newer version? 1.2 or 1.31? If it should be updated, is this something only able to be flashed from a Windows OS? 2) It can't be used as a boot option. the Maximus doesn't recognise it as a startup option. Is this a possible AHCI version firmware issue? Is booting ever possible from these controllers? 3) TRIM was disabled in system profile. I know it automatically worked OOB for my NVME2 drives connected to the motherboard, But to enable Trim on an SSD 860 EVO I needed to submit the terminal command: sudo trimforce enable Now the second ASMedia controller I haven't been able to get to work. I've switched the jumpers (not sure which position is the 1,2,3) so I've made it so that one internal and one external will operate to test the card. System profiler sees the card like all the others as a "Generic AHCI Controller" with AHCI version 1.20 supported. However, I cannot get any drive to be recognised in the eSATA ports. I haven't tested the internal ports as I don't need these. I've attempted using two kexts (attached) AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext and AHCIPortInjector.kext When I use AHCIPortInjector.kext the SATA device is recognised in system profiler as an ASM1062. However no drive works with this kext. And reading the chip itself on the card it says ASM1061. So not sure why it's preferring the 1062 entry over the 1061 since both are present in the kext. When I use AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext that SATA device is not recognised at all in the system profiler. It disappears. I'm not using a custom DSDT for this motherboard and I've attached my config.plist if anyone has some insight on either cards.

  7. Hello! This is my first Hackintosh install and honestly, I need some help since I have been trying to install this for 3 days but I am having some problems that aren't allowing me to do it right. First of all, my computer: Intel i7 2600K Gigabyte GA-Z68P-DS3 Rev 1.0 BIOS F4 2 x G Skill F3-12800CL9-4GBXL MSI GeForce GT520 I am using the bootable USB by Olarila, since I don't have access to any Mac to create my own images neither Dual Layer DVD's to burn. Essentially, the problem I am facing is the message "System uptime in nanoseconds: xxxxxxxxx". I have tried: - Adding the DSDT.aml of my motherboard to the extra folder. No success. - Deleting the graphic video kexts. This leads to a message that says "PCI Configuration Begin". - Adding some arguments (I don't remember each of them, they were several) like: -v -x PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No I have been reading a lot but I have no idea of what to do. Which way should I go? Thank you.
  8. I finally installed el capitan. My computer has only usb 2.0 on the motherboard and a usb 3.0 pci-e add-on card (In Windows it is recognized as Renesans Nec µPD720202). Both usb 2.0 and 3.0 port were working in Yosemite. Now, on El Capitan, usb 2.0 ports are working, but the usb 3.0 ports on the usb card are not. They are recognized and even the external drive, plugged in the usb 3.0 is recognized but it does't show up. I tried some other usb devices but they don't work too...
  9. Hi all, I'm a little bit newbie to hackintosh but I have a problem. I recently built a new pc which spec are: ASrock H87M motherboard 1 stick of 8 GB Cruical ballstix RAM Seagate Baracuda 7200rpm SATA 3 HDD Intel Core i5 4570 CPU and Nvidia Geforce GTX660 OC. Now whenever I'm trying to boot installation of any hackintosh (I've tried iAtkos and niresh) I got stuck at [PCI Configuration Begin]. I searched a lot of forums, tried various boot flags (GraphicsEnabler=No, npci=0x3000(and 0x2000), -x, -v) but nothing helps i just stuck here. So now I'm searching for help there. Here is the screenshot of niresh boot(its kinda same as iatkos) maybie it will help link Thanks

    TP Link WN751ND

    Hey guys, I am thinking to buy PCI WN751ND card. I am currently using Mountain Lion 10.8.4. Who used it already? Is it working? Thanks!
  11. I have started this thread to discuss about old and very cheap ethernet cards working in the latest macOS releases, cards who just uses old ethernet controllers or are new and cheap cards with old ethernet controllers, this thread is just to discuss about such cards and also to have a list in the first post with reported working cards with drivers linked. To contribute you have to report which card of this kind is working for you and which driver or method you followed to get it wo work and also which issues you have, and then it will be added in the list. I start reporting cards which worked for me, yours will be added in the future: intel 8255X based cards: just works using the AppleIntel8255X kext (look in the attachments) and seems to be stable with no issues And also there are some cards i am curious to see if can work with mac, so i leave this part at the end of the post, do you know if it's possible to get realtek pci (not pci express) ethernet cards working in the latest mac os? i have a few of them and i have difficulties fining drivers for mac, having a driver for the latest mac wil help me in creating also a youtube video with the cheapest hackintosh compatible ethernet cards AppleIntel8255x.kext.zip
  12. qualcuno sa se puo' funzionare in qualche modo su mountain lion perche non me la vede?
  13. 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.
  14. I have working DSDT but the only thing that doesn't work is my PCI slot which I attached USB expansion card in. It works fine when booted but doesn't wake up after sleep. All other port, PCI-E wakes up except that two PCI slot. I've tried to patch DSDT in PEX3 (that is what I see in ioregistry), but no luck. Can someone help? Thanks. I've attached DSDT here and it is PEX3 that I am trying to get it fixed. DSDT-GP-Full.aml.zip
  15. This is a dedicated thread about the intel 8255X based ethernet cards which, although being old (but also very cheap and easy to find used online), they still works in the latest macOS releases today i tested mine with the 64 bit compiled AppleIntel8255X kext and works like a charm! stable and withou any issues with mine 100 mbit managed ethernet switch and also without suffering of problems like connection dieing under heavy load or sleep/wake issues, so just to report that i have create this dedicated thread about and also i leave the kext as an attachment, in this post, this may be usefoul to have cheap working ethernet for hackintosh machines running the latest macOS or just to reuse old hardware some one can have laying around.
