  3. 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.

  9. Hey. I have a Dell Vostro 3267 system unit. It has a Skylake processor Intel Core i5-6400 with integrated graphics Intel HD 530, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD. The monitor is connected via HDMI. I faced a problem that if I enter Hackintosh in a sleep mode, and then I press something on the keyboard, the system unit wakes up (I hear as coolers begin to turn), but the monitor does not react in any way. I tried to disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cord, tried to inject EDID in config tried to change SMBIOS on MacMini8,1, but it did not change the situation. How to solve the problem? P.S. All in Mojave 10.14.6 CLOVER.7z

  12. Hi all I'm problems with my machine today. Previously this was a smooth running Skylake machine on 10.11.4 with a GTX 970. I've done some extensive troubleshooting and still can't get video acceleration to work. Randomly the other day while browsing the web, the computer monitor just blanked out on me and the monitor went to sleep. Then I wouldn't be able to boot into the Machine as the monitor would turn off half way through the booting process. I'm was finally able to boot by passing the nv_disable=1 flag but then my 970 wouldn't be recognized and I'd have zero graphics acceleration. I played around with a few things. Updated to 10.11.5 with the latest Nvidia drivers and am still having the same issue. Currently I can only boot with the nv_disable=1 flag with zero graphics acceleration. If I don't include this flag the booting process goes halfway then the monitor sleeps. I've tried multiple system definitions from iMac 17,1, 15,1 14,2 MacPro 6,1 4,1 3,1 I've tried the Pike AGDPfix I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the latest nvidia web drivers I even thought there was a chance my video card was busted so I booted into windows and everything works perfectly. I also tried to switch back to using the integrated graphics by plugging my HDMI cable into my integrated HDMI port (which used to work) but now I can't even see my bios screen when I'm on integrated graphics. No idea what the problem is. I'm not sure what to try next. Any help is much appreciated. Here's a link to my clover config https://www.dropbox.com/s/s1xzmasrcy5632o/config.plist?dl=0

Before sleep, everything is working fine, but after sleep, I couldn't open videos(on youtube or anywhere higher than 240p), pictures, FaceTime. This is a hardware decode problem, so I opened terminal and typed this: defaults write com.apple.coremedia hardwareVideoDecoder disable After this, Safari and video players could open HD or any videos after sleep, but Chrome not responding (Chrome forced hardware acceleration, and good after disabled that in advanced settings), FaceTime, Preview also not responding, and the pictures on hdd just loading too, nothing happens. Problem exist on all HS versions (13.0 - 13.3). On Sierra 10.12.6 this problem does not exists. Here I'll attach informations (ioreg, CLOVER, screenshot).

  18. Hello! Long story short: a couple of weeks ago I built a custom pc (see signature), installed 10.11.2, fixed a couple of this that weren't working and then updated to 10.11.3. It all went quite smooth (the last hackintosh I built was 6 years ago with iAkintosh or something on a netbook, and things were.. complicated). The system was running all nice and fast without any problem at all, until.. Random reboots started appearing. I didn't installed/change any kext after the usual post-install. It is really all working: iMessage, WiFi, Bluetooth, Nvidia, Sleep/Wake, USB 3, etc. I only get random reboots pretty much everyday (and when it happens, multiple times a day). I investigated the following cases/issues: Bad RAM: maybe.. Maybe yes: memtest always reports different amounts of RAM (rebooted in two occasions), "About this Mac" randomly displays correct memory frequency, sometimes before a kernel panic occurs apps start to crash and can't be reopen (then the system restarts); Maybe no: under heavy memory load the system doesn't reboot, and I game on Windows under heavy load without any problem; Bad power management: maybe too..? ​Maybe yes: Intel power gadget can't recognize CPU (CPU not supported), original DSDT (F4 on clover boot) have an error I can't resolve; Maybe no: the reboots are random, sleep/wake doesn't increase or decrease them, and I put OS X under heavy load too; Wrong kext/driver: really don't know, didn't installed anything kext-related after the first installation but never say never. I know Skylake is not fully supported but hey, everything was working fine. Also, I can not update clover.. Connection is there but when I click "check now" nothing happens (updated fine before). I tried fixing permissions and rebuild kext cache, nope, keeps rebooting. I made an SSDT with SSDTPRgen and put in clover patched folder, keeps rebooting. At this point I don't have any clue on where to look/patch, so I'm posting here the last 7 panic reports with the hope that someone, somehow will be able to help me, thank you very much, panic 1.rtf panic 2.rtf panic 3.rtf panic 4.rtf panic 5.rtf panic 6.rtf panic 7.rtf
  19. Hi guys! I'm planning to upgrade my PC to new Skylake CPU - compatible mobo and memory. I've read a lot of topics and guides about Intel Skylake CPU's and MacOS installations and every guide says you should disable Intel virtualization technology for CPU (VT-d) in uEFI/BIOS settings. Every virtualization software (hypervisors) need this option enabled for this software working. And I really need this software for my job (sometimes I'm running multiple OS'es or need some software not compatible with Mac OS). So, the question is: Is it really impossible (for now) to fully run MacOS on Skylake CPUs (with all features enabled or VT-d, at least)?
  20. Hey all, I got my Sierra hackinotsh mostly working perfectly including audio, nvidia gfx, power management, etc. Shutdown works fine but sleep mode does not. It goes to sleep but then wakes up within a few seconds on its own. I have tried the SlpSmiAtWake option in Clover, that is what enabled it to get past being able to wake from sleep at all, but cant seem to figure out why it wont stay asleep. Any ideas? thanks!
  21. Hey all, I recently just finished my first ever Hackintosh build and am extremely happy with it apart from one major issue.. The specs: Intel Core Skylake Processor i5-6500 Gigabyte H170N-WI-FI Motherboard Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16 GB Kit (8 GB x 2) DDR4 2400 Corsair 550W CS550M Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB Broadcom BCM94352Z DW1560 Wireless-AC 867M WiFi Bluetooth 4.0 NGFF M.2 Card (being shipped) OSX El Capitan (not sierra) NOTE: I'm using integrated GFX as I don't want to spend anymore just yet on a GPU but maybe in the near future! I followed ammulder's guide on installing El Capitan and everything is working apart from my Display Ports. I have a HDMI plugged in (top HDMI port on mobo) and works fine it's just when I have my other monitor hooked up using either the other HDMI provided or DVI port I get a complete blank display and my other monitor is still working as normal. I tried other guides, few different tweaks and even hotplugging but that doesn't seem to work. I also tried taking the HDMI out of the working port and inserting it into another HDMI or DVI and that doesn't seem to work either. Please help me as I would highly appreciate it and would love to be using this amazing build with 2 monitors instead of 1. Regards, Emphasising
  22. Hello there, I want to start this topic because I know there are many hardware shipping last generation Intel cards, which incorporates 2,4 and 5 GHz bands. I could be posible to make it work with help of the community. There are currently two projects attempting to fix these wifi chipsets, but they doesn't work, they only show version of firmware of the card or attempt to load it. These are based on Linux drivers https://github.com/ammulder/AppleIntelWiFiMVM/releases/ These are based on FreeBSD drivers https://github.com/bjornefitte/IntelWifiPort I'm not a very experienced programmer, but I can help, and I have hardware to test, I got a Intel 3165. However, bluetooth works with some issues. It can connect with my Android and browse its contents, permitting to download and upload files.

    Nvidia GT 710 working but funny

    Hi everyone. I have succesfully installed sierra on my computer, and activated graphics using a fix for nvidia. It is a skylake (h110 chipset), so I have to use imac 17,1 SMBIOS. The problem is that sometimes and suddenly, some icons when apps are launched get fixed at a place in the screen. Also I have appreciated that launching some apps like system information may launch the app in a very small size in the screen. This is very strange, because macOS reports Metal support (so OpenCL is working), and using IORegistryExplorer show that the card has acceleration. I don't know what is going on. I bought the 710 because I know that Kepler cards are easier to install. Note that I'm using a VGA monitor, but I have tested with HDMI and it seems to be the same.
  24. Trying to install Mavericks on an Asus H170M-E D3 motherboard, Skylake I3-6100 cpu, Intel 530 graphics. Last message I see is "root device uud is" and a series of "+++" but then it just stops. Have prepared usb with createinstallmedia, added Clover 4413 and changed a few settings with Configurator. Any help is welcome.
  25. Introduction This is a step-by-step guide for installing macOS Sierra 10.12.x on ASRock H170M-ITX/ac utilizing the onboard Intel HD530 GPU. Sorry for not elaborating like you’re reading a novel of some sort, but I think this is for your own benefit. Here are the details of my personal build: - ASRock H170M-ITX/ac (BIOS v7.00) - Core i3-6100 @ 3.7GHz - 16GB RAM @ 2133MHz - Onboard HD530 via HDMI - Mini PCIe BCM94352HMB Wifi+BT My experience with this system after 4 - 5 months of daily development usage (Xcode, Web etc.) is this: It's most definitely a very stable system if you don't mind the well known Hackintosh plague, which is the absence of Sleep functionality. Highly recommended. Prerequisites - Maccie, a working Macintosh or Hackintosh computer, or even a macOS VM on Windows. - Hackie, your to-be Hackintosh computer. - Installie, a USB disk with capacity of 16GB or more. Create the Install Disk A) Download Install macOS Sierra.app from the AppStore on Maccie. Insert a USB disk on Maccie and open Disk Utility. Select your USB disk, select Erase, add Installie as its name and press Erase. C) Run the following command from Terminal: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Installie --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction D) Once more, rename your USB disk to Installie and execute Clover_v2.4k_r4049.pkg. Select Installie USB disk as target, then proceed to the customization step. E) Select nothing but Install for UEFI booting only, Install Clover in the ESP, and OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 from Drivers64UEFI menu. F) Installie's EFI partition is now mounted. Overwrite EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with the config.plist file attached to this post. G) Copy all attached kexts to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other, copy SSDT-2.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. OS X Installation H) Your Installie USB disk is now ready, plug it in on Hackie. I) Press Del key to enter Hackie’s BIOS. On the Exit menu, execute Load UEFI Defaults, then enable XHCI Handoff. J) On Boot menu, set your first boot device to UEFI: BrandName XYZ, Partition 1. Save everything and exit. K) On Clover menu, select the macOS Installer entry, and after a couple of minutes you should be in the macOS Sierra installer. L) Open Disk Utility, and format Hackie's internal HDD or SDD just like on step B, but this time name it Macintosh HD. M) Continue with the installation on Macintosh HD until Hackie is restarted. Then, the second part of the installation will continue. N) On the last restart, this time boot from your newly created Macintosh HD. Finalize O) With some luck you should be now customizing your Hackie's first run. P) Repeat steps D, E, F, G but this time make sure you apply everything on Macintosh HD. Q) Remove Installie from USB port, and restart Hackie. R) The end. Extra Points S) If you own a SSD, paste the following on Terminal in order to enable TRIM support: sudo trimforce enable T) Replace VBoxHfs-64.efi with HFSPlus-64.efi in drivers64UEFI. It's proprietary, but it's faster. Notes - You should replace the default Intel Wifi+BT Mini PCIe card with the BCM94352HMB or something equally compatible. - Sleep does not work yet (see post #2 for output). - Keep in mind that this is a WIP, any input from you will be much appreciated. - Make sure to mention the lettering of the step in question and the description of your problem using as much detail as possible.
