    rEFInd feat. Ozmosis

    Hello everybody, I’m using Ozmosis with a Gigabyte H81M-HD3 but unfortunately this board hasn’t enough space in it’s ROM to store the apfs.efi, too. Than I have a second machine, my ZBox-Nano that not even has the space for the really necessary stuff. Sure, Clover is able to solve all this problems but I want to go with Ozmosis Here comes rEFInd into the game: http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/ This boot loader could be installed into the ESP. rEFInd is not only able to detect apfs formatted partitions but also to load uefi drivers! And after some weeks of testing, I claim that rEFInd is doing his job very well. rEFInd is open source so I take a look into it and found a good starting point to learn a little more about the UEFI. The result is a rEFInd version with some additions, that should make life easier and more colorful …. I’m using this „enhanced“ version in two different setup’s. First the H81M, that comes with ozmosis, hfsplus, fakesmc and a patched dsdt inside the ROM. Here rEFInd is only loading apfs.efi and scanning for macOS. The Oz directory on the ESP is not in use. Second the ZBox. I only replaced the FileSystem driver with EnhancedFat and patched the ROM to unlock the MSR. rEFInd is loading hfsplus, apfs and ozmosis and is scanning for macOS. Ozmosis is loading dsdt, ssdt, kext and defaults from the Oz directory on the ESP. If you like to test it: Installation is easy but do it at your own risk! Unzip the download and open the directory in Finder. It comes with rEFInd, ozmosis.efi, apfs.efi, hfsplus.efi and a Oz directory with mac mini defaults and fakesmc.kext. Goto Efi/Oz and adapt it, to suit your needs. Goto Efi/Boot/drivers_x64, if you have ozmosis or hfsplus installed into your ROM, delete it from the drivers directory because you don’t need to load it again. If you are ready to go, mount your ESP and copy shellX64.efi and the Efi directory into the ESP root. Btw.: This is a EDKII shell, that comes with some functions, which are needed by the nsh scripts I used for changing rEFInd’s configuration from the boot menu. This is a round up of the changes I made, but after some more testing I will create a fork on GitHub. Until then I can provide a patch against the current refind source, if someone is interested. rEFInd 0.11.2-enhanced Changes / Additions A. Configuration rEFInd is showing a message while scanning for devices. To disable this message use: hide_scan_msg 1 Boot Splash is an extra banner used only with timeout -1 This banner is splashing centered at the boot screen. boot_splash banners/banner-black.png Color Mode can be any combination from the following 0=off 1=icon_auto, 2=icon_value 4=font_auto, 8=font_value 16=menu_auto, 32=menu_value 64=back_value color_mode 0 <- function is disabled (default) color_mode 21 <- icons, text and selections are tinted automatic background color from the banner color_mode 85 <- icons, text and selections are tinted automatic background color from value (for transparent banner) color_mode 101 <- icons, text are tinted automatic menu / selection color from value background color from value (for transparent banner) *_auto generates the color from the current background color *_value enables the corresponding rgb(a)_color rgba colors are in hex RED, GREEN, BLUE, ALPHA rgb colors are in hex RED, GREEN, BLUE rgba_color_icon f3,f3,f3,5e rgba_color_menu d3,d3,d3,5e rgba_color_font d3,d3,d3,5e rgb_color_back 0c,6f,b8 Space between icons in pixel # big-icons(0-256) small-icons(0-64) y-spacing(0-64) icon_spacing 64 32 24 B. Behaviour The unmodified rEFInd is scanning all devices at start. Then it loads the drivers if any detected and scans the devices again. This is good for Mac's but we want to load the drivers for sure, so I change this a little. Now rEFInd only scans for the ESP to know it's location. Then it reads the config, load the drivers and start scanning devices. Also this version is able to detect the 'macOS Install Data'. This is necessary for installing and updating macOS on partitions formatted with apfs. New embed banner, arrows and selections. New embed font (Ubunutu-Mono 18pt and 28pt). New os_icons from https://github.com/munlik/refind-theme-regular New tool and function icons. Visual changes for creating the boot entries. Changed icon spacing And some more ... Update (14.12.07): - adaptable icon spacing - apfs.efi from macOS 10.13.2 Have Fun! rEFInd-0.11.2-enhanced.zip

    Vector Themes

    Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later. It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes. It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size. What application in macOS can create SVG graphics? Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity. LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy. Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features. Illustrator is good but expensive. How to improve SVG file? Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering. Some helps: Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities. How to create SVG fonts? You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts. I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful. You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google. But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering. You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font. Pictures from Badruzeus https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=301597
  3.  OS X 10.11 El Capitan UEFI Clover on Sony VAIO S PLEASE REFER TO THE GUIDE. I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS IF ALREADY ANSWERED IN THE GUIDE! BY FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE YOU AGREE TO TAKE THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF LOSING DATA. ALWAYS BACKUP! This guide will give you step-by-step instructions on How to Install OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Sony VAIO SVS13. Sony VAIO S13p (SVS13A2C5E) Specs: Intel Core i7-3520M 12GB SDRAM Intel HD Graphics 4000 NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M Samsung 850 Evo 250GB What's working? Intel HD4000 Graphics with QE/CI Acceleration HDMI Sound (Speakers, Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI, USB) Keyboard, Touchpad USB 2.0/3.0 Webcam Optical Drive Ethernet Bluetooth (Intel) Brightness Power button Sleep/Wake UEFI/NVRAM *WiFi (Broadcom/Atheros) *Airport Extreme 2,4GHz/5GHz *802.11ac/n/g/b/a *Bluetooth (Broadcom/Atheros) *Airdrop *Handoff & Hotspot with BT4LE What's partially working? Bluetooth Intel BT worked OOB but does not feature Handoff since it's not a BT4LE. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Webcam Since the Exmor sensor built in is not the best, you get a dark image in OS X. Windows uses software/drivers to increase the brightness. What's not working? Intel WiFi Apple doesn't use Intel WiFi. Replace your chip with an Atheros or Broadcom one. Discrete graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 640M uses NVIDIA Optimus for dual-configuration which is not supported the same way on OS X. VGA Apple removed this feature in OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion SD-Card/Memory Stick Reader (no drivers for OS X) Speed/Stamina switch Fingerprint sensor (no drivers for OS X) Disc Eject/Assist/Web/VAIO buttons You need… ... an empty USB flash drive or an external hard drive (8gb at least) ... a Mac or a virtual machine with OS X (10.6.8 or later) On your Mac/OS X VM Download OS X 10.11 El Capitan from the App Store Create the OS X Installer You can actually create the OS X installer on the (external) hard drive but to keep things simple from now on I will refer to ‚USB‘. IF YOU HAVE IMPORTANT DATA ON YOUR USB, PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP! THE USB WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED! You can create the USB with either a MBR or a GPT partition scheme. If you select MBR, you will have to manually create a FAT partition for CLOVER EFI and a separate HFS+J partition for the OS X Installer. With GPT you just need 1 HFS+J partition and Disk Utility creates a hidden EFI partition. Since we will use this USB with a UEFI system, we can use GPT. On legacy system you need a MBR USB. Create Partition(s) on USB Open Disk Utility under /Applications/Utilities. Select the USB. Click on the Partition tab. Click on Partition Layout > 1 partition. Click on Options. Select GUID Partition Table. Apply with OK. Under Format select Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Under Name rename the partition to „install_osx“. Click on Apply. Click on Partition. When it’s finished creating the USB partition(s) close Disk Utility. Make OS X Installer on USB*1 Open Terminal and type this command, then press Enter: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_osx --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction You need a password for this command*2. Type your password and press Enter. This process can take several minutes, depending on the USB write speed. Mine took 5 minutes to finish. Close Terminal. You now have a OS X installer for real Macs. We need the Clover bootloader to actually boot the OS X Installer on a non-Mac system. *1 The createinstallmedia method is not supported under OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Use alternative methods. *2 If you don't have a password (blank), you need to set one under System Preferences > User & Groups > Change Password Install Clover to USB Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Open the Clover installer package. Click on Continue, Continue. Click on Change Install Location. Select your USB drive now called ‚Install OS X El Capitan’. Don't select the internal Hard Drive on your real Mac/VM! Click on Continue. Click on Customize. Check ‚Install for UEFI booting only‘. ‚Install Clover in the ESP‘ will be selected automatically and installed to the hidden EFI partition. Under Drivers64UEFI check ‚OsxAptioFixDrv2-64‘. Optional: Install BlueMac under Themes. Click on Install. Type your password. Click on Install Software. When it’s finished, press Close. Since the EFI partition is hidden, we need to mount it to copy some files. But the Clover installer already mounted it.*3 Go to the EFI partition (on your Desktop). Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI Delete VBoxHFS.efi Download HFSPlus.efi https://github.com/JrCs/CloverGrowerPro/blob/master/Files/HFSPlus/X64/HFSPlus.efi?raw=true Copy HFSPlus.efi to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI Go to the folder /EFI/CLOVER/kexts Delete all the folders inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts except for ‚Other‘.

Select Desktop as your location. Click Save. Click Don’t Append. Rename the config file on your desktop to ‚config.plist‘. Copy config.plist from your Desktop to /EFI/CLOVER and replace the default one. Make a backup of your /EFI/CLOVER folder to the other USB partition (‚Install OS X El Capitain‘). You’ll need it later. Create a folder for that. Eject the EFI partition. Eject the USB. *3 If you unmounted/ejected the EFI partition of the USB, read the Mouning EFI section under Post Installation of this guide. On the Sony VAIO S BACKUP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT DATA BEFORE PROCEEDING. THE HARD DRIVE WILL BE FORMATTED AND EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED! BIOS Settings Shut down your laptop. Press the Assist button. Press F2 to boot into BIOS. Restore default settings under the Exit tab. Make sure ‚UEFI‘ is on. Make sure ‚Booting from external device‘ is on.*4 Save settings. Shut down your laptop. *4 This option External Device Boot applies when you set the external device to first boot priority. it doesn't affect pressing F11 to boot from External Device. Boot the OS X Installer Plug in your USB into a USB 3 port. The USB 2 port will not work without GenericXHCI (GenericXHCI does not work in OS X 10.11 El Capitan anyway). Press the Assist button. Press F11 to boot from external device.*5 Press ENTER to boot the OS X Installer. *5 If you have set the External Device as first Boot Priority you don't have to boot from Rescue Mode (Assist Button). Just connect the USB and boot your Laptop. Installing OS X El Capitan Select language. Continue. Launch Disk Utility. Erase your hard disk. Rename your partition and apply. Exit Disk Utility. Install OS X. Continue. Select your hard drive partition. Install. This process creates the Recovery partition. After a while the OS X Installer will automatically restart and beging the real installation. The real installation can take several minutes, depending on read/write speeds. When it’s finished you will again boot into your USB’s Clover Menu. Select your partition in Clover Boot Menu and boot into OS X. Configure OS X. Installing Clover to the Hard Drive To boot without USB you need to install Clover again - this time your Hard Drive. It’s a similar process to installing it to USB. Download Clover EFI bootloader. http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/ Open the Clover installer package. Click on Continue, Continue. Click on Change Install Location. Select your Hard Drive partition. Continue. Don't select your USB. Click on Customize. Check ‚Install for UEFI booting only‘. ‚Install Clover in the ESP‘ will be selected automatically. Under Drivers64UEFI check ‚OsxAptioFixDrv2-64‘. Check ‚Install RC scripts on target volume‘ (Optional) Check ‚Install Clover Preference Pane‘ Click on Install. When it’s finished, press Close. Enable ‚Hard disks’ under Finder > Preferences > General > Show these items on the desktop. You can disable it later. Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI Delete VBoxHFS.efi Open your USB drive. Copy the contents of the EFI-backup to EFI partition of your hard drive. Replace the files. Open the folder /EFI/CLOVER/kexts. Rename ‚Other‘ to ‚10.11‘. Restart your laptop without the USB and boot into OS X. Post Installation Mounting EFI Whenever you install something to the EFI partition, you will need to first mount it.

  6. With the purpose of running the beloved Apple Mac OS X on our Intel ASUS laptop I am writing this guide to share my experience and knowledge about this Hackintosh. This tutorial applies to running versions between 10.9 and 10.11.6, focusing specially in El Capitan. This method applies also for Sierra but at the moment my WiFi Card doesn't work well with 10.12 so I chose to remain in a stable Mac OS X I have 99% functionality: What Works : WiFi, Bluetooth, Airdrop, HandOff, FindMyMac (WiFi card has to be replaced, I put a BCM94352HMB) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated HD4400 graphics Trackpad with 1finger, 2finger, 3finger and 4finger gestures Keyboard (Perfect with Volume, Brightness, Play/Pause, Numpad working) Battery Percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone, Headphone Jack, HDMI audio DVD Drive HDMI audio and video VGA out iMessage and FaceTime Recovery Partition What is not working Internal SD Card Reader When you install Clover Bootloader to your USB media or HDD you should select the following options: - Install for UEFI booting only - Install Clover in the ESP - Drivers64UEFI (Fat-64, OSxAptioFix2Drv) After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folder In the above mentioned “other” folder place the kexts that I will quote next, please note that the kexts marked in red are the absolute necessary ones for booting Mac OS X installer , the rest should only be installed afterwards, after having Mac OS X installed to your hard drive and directly to /System/Library/Extensions : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext BrcmPatchRAM (Mavericks) or BrcmPatchRAM2 (Yosemite or later) CodecCommander.kext DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext (Only for El Capitan) FakePCIID_IntelHDMIaudio.kext FakePCIID_BroadcomWiFI.kext (makes my BCM94352HMB work) FakePCIID_IntelHDGraphics.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) IntelBacklight.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext (Only for El Capitan) After all the kexts necessary are in the correct folder, proceed to mimic my config.plist Note that the Kext patches included only work for El Capitan. If you want older version support, post here and I can help. I recommend using Clover Configurator App config.plist.zip For your SMBIOS choose MacbookPro11,2 and shake those serial numbers to really get a genuine one. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin in your USB you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch I recommend patching these tables before installing Mac OS X in order to have a better user experience and better functionality as well as a cleaner and smoother install. Your computer may not even reach the installer since we have no way of disabling our discrete NVIDIA Geforce 820m without getting our hands dirty in DSDT patches. Delete all files that don’t start with DSDT or SSDT- If you have an SSDT with an x just delete it because it is dynamically loaded and so does not need our attention. Place the files in our interest in a folder and: cd /path/to/a/folder iasl -da -dl *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors. In the latest BIOS we have the following errors: DSDT- We will find 4 errors The parse op Zero errors can be fixed by deleting all the “Zero” you find in the conflicting place The remaining two errors are fixed by applying the ADBG fix from RehabMan repo SSDT-1- We find many errors and all can be fixed by applying the patch “Remove _PSS placeholders” SSDT-12- We find an error related to a specific sector of a cryptic DOS device, we can safely delete these following lines from the SSDT Now that all our ACPI tables are nice and clean we can proceed to patching First of all, open all the tables at the same time and hit Command + F to bring up the Find Replace dialog box and Find:GFX0 and Replace it with: IGPU Find:B0D3 and Replace it with HDAU Do this in all the tables, so the renames are the same in all your tables When that is done, apply the following patches to the DSDT: Use the patch "DTGP" (you can easily find it with our friend Google ) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix Windows 8” Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “7-8 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x0D" Use the patch "Igpu Brightness Fix" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" When you have applied the Audio Layout Patch just Find: layout and it should show the only result, then make that part look like mine, so that you can use AppleALC for native on the fly audio If you want HDMI audio you should open SSDT-10 and find layout again and make it look like the one you just edited in DSDT, we do this because we want layout-id 29 instead of layout-id 3 For battery percentage you should use the ASUS N55SL/Vivobook patch Finally when you did all that you should follow RehabMan’s tutorial for Disabling Discrete Graphics Cards, on a web which I am not allowed to mention. This will give you much more battery life and a lot less heat. You should read it properly and you will notice there is close to no difference between his example and our laptop so it will be easier than it looks like. Make sure you also use the patch he posts to fix shutdown and sleep when our NVIDIA is disabled. After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and cd /path/to/where/your/patched/tables/are Then delete all the original aml files And then iasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load it Place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" as I did in the attached config.plist. Before installing Mac OS X make sure in your BIOS you have legacy mode disabled and you have secure boot and fast boot also disabled, so that Clover works well. Also make sure the controller is set to AHCI mode. Remember to use a GUID partition table on your Hard Drive and if you plan to dual boot just create two Mac OS Extended Journaled partitions, don't create any Fat partition using Disk Utility cause that will leave you unable to install Windows in UEFI mode. Post-Install Finally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh (this can only be done when you have installed Mac OS X) https://github.com/P...ha/ssdtPRGen.sh Add it to the Sorted Order and you are done Make sure to set the hibernate mode to either 0 or 2 . ​You can copy the colour profiles from ASUS Splendid Utility and use them in Mac OS X, but for my eyes, I prefer the default LCD one This is the first fully functional Hackintosh I ever accomplished and it took me a few months of learning… I am using Mac OS X for about two or more years in this Hack and I am still in love like the very first boot hihihi This is almost the perfect HackBook and has worked since Mountain Lion until now Hope you enjoyed!
  7. Hello! I'm trying to install El Capitan on my Lenovo Yoga 300 but I can't even get any bootloader to show up after turning on the computer... I tried Enoch, Chameleon and Clover and neither of them works. My BIOS can't see Enoch USB, but sees Clover. Unfortunately, when I try to boot them I can see nothing... I tried Clover in UEFI only mode, with Legacy mode, but no success. Please help me! My laptop has Intel Celeron N3050 with Intel HD.
  8. Hello everyone, I've finally managed to install Windows 10 in the same HDD as macOS Sierra, the problem is that my laptop boots directly into Windows, it won't let me go to clover. However, if I boot from my installation usb i can boot into clover and choose Windows or Sierra. I have already tried to reinstall Clover but it will keep booting into Windows. I have also tried to rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw-orig.efi and copy the clover efi into the Windows efi folder and renaming as bootmgfw.efi. It will only work until I boot Windows, next time it will boot into Windows directly again. Please help

And I can plug and unplug built-on LCD at any time, it works well without glitches. 2) CPU turboboost only to 2,3Ghz although it should be up to 2.6Ghz; 3) USB ports work incorrect after sleep mode (usb-flashs shout be replugged); 4) The built-in notebook microphone stops working when I insert the headphones with a built-in microphone (Both microphones don't work. OS X recognizes headphone's microphone as line-in). 5) I can't get to work AppleBlackLight.kext (There isn't brightness slider in SysPref -> monitor panel); 6) There isn't "Touchpad panel" in SysPref when I use ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext (I can't use VoodooPS2Controller.kext as touchpad has mad cursor motion with it), but SysPref -> Touchpad panel appears with it. - Use AsusNBFnKeys.kext (It makes all Fn keys working - enable/disable touchpad, enable/disable bluetooth, switch to Android tablet and other) carefully because some issues appear with brightness control.

  10. Greetings, I had a fully working 10.11 installation via Clover on an SSD along with Windows 8.1 (dual boot). Today I was having many issues with Win (nothing unusual, sod it!) so I decided to install Win10 on another SSD and because of yet another plethora of Windows-related problems, I had to unplug my main drive (the one with OS X and Clover on it) from the motherboard to make the installer work. When I re-attached it, Clover did not show up. I figured it might be due to changed boot order but there is no UEFI option in the boot menu either (it's usually something like UEFI: P1 Samsung PRO 512GB, now it's without the UEFI bit). The partitions are intact and I can still boot into Windows, yet when I try to boot from the OS X partition, it does not work (normal black screen, insert media, press any key). I did not change any UEFI /“BIOS”/ settings, swap the SATA port, or make any alterations to the drive whatsoever. As my next step, I installed Clover on a USB drive and successfully booted into the main OS X partition on the SSD through it. I successfully mounted the EFI partition and confirmed that all files on it are intact. I then re-installed Clover to the OS X partition (the installer considered it an upgrade), but to no avail—nothing has changed after a reboot. Now I'm sitting here and wondering what could have caused this and how to fix it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find another person with the same problem so far. Any help will be appreciated. Cheers!

  11. Hello everybody, I just passed the full progress from a Windows 10 to a Dual Boot Hackintosh. After a few stupid mistakes it's working now absolutely fine. I have a Radeon 380X I set my iGPU as primary in BIOS. But I experience some issues with sleep mode. The thing is, in OSX it will just stop the video output, when pressing a key it will activate it again, but the PC itself just stays on as in normal mode (no affect). In Windows 10 there isn't the energy saver button in Start Menu. So there's no way of pressing it. By the way Shutdown and Restart work perfect. But, now it's getting interesting, when I boot my Windows through BIOS boot menu, this option is available (if I boot Windows through Clover it's not). I think it's (hopefully) not a big deal, as it's actually working in "pure Windows 10" which I think boots through legacy. I just read through all the "Sleep Issues" Thread and also used the search function but none of them fits to the issues I am experiencing. I was thinking about the "darkmode" bootflag or something with DSDT but as I'm absolutely new I'm really unsure what to do and don't want to destroy my actually running system. Thank you very much for your help! P.S. If any other informations are necessary I'm glad to provide them to you.
  12. Hi, I have Yosemite running well with Clover bootloader. Clover is installed in an EFI partition. I see my Windows OS at the Clover start screen, but none of the Windows options boot into the Windows 8 OS. I get a black screen or a logo which just sits there. Windows 8 boots fine if I change the device boot order in bios. Looking at other posts, I'm guessing that this is because Windows is not installed in UEFI mode. I don't know enough about this to know if it is fixable in my case. The motherboard is quite old - see my sig. How should I go about enabling Windows booting with Clover? Here's the output from diskutil list: /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0 1: Windows_NTFS Untitled 500.1 GB disk0s1 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *512.1 GB disk1 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS MacOS 511.3 GB disk1s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk1s3 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk2 1: Windows_NTFS Media 1.0 TB disk2s1 /dev/disk3 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk3 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk3s1 2: Apple_HFS MacBackup 499.8 GB disk3s2 disk0 is Windows 8, disk1 is Yosemite. I have also attached my Clover config.plist Many thanks for advice.
  13. Edit: Updated to Beta 4 just fine, BTW I love this board! It takes a bit of work to get going, but the GA-Z97MX Gaming 5 is a wonderful board for your own, bulkier version of the iMac. Indeed, I just taped mine to the back of my Cinema Display and I can't see the difference. From the front, at least. It's not perfect, at least not yet. I have issues with kernel panics at boot (related to kernel cache and/or patching—I welcome any thoughts or suggestions). I'm not sure if I can fully utilize Apple's online services. And perhaps most importantly for the novice, Yosemite throws in some instability issues and graphical glitches (I didn't experience them in Mavericks). It's not the easiest or most welcoming build and will require patience. But if you can stomach those things it's a superb choice of quality and features. Let's just hope we get full support and stability when Yosemite is released, and that OS X will see official 9-series chipset support before Apple switches everything to ARM or some craziness. The Specs Haswell Core i5 3.5 Ghz CPU 16 GB Corsair 1866 Mhz RAM GeForce 760 MSI ITX Gaming GPU The Features Z97 chipset (As of writing, not used in any Mac but seems to work like a Z87) ALC1150 audio with swappable op-amp Atheros Killer E2201 (I think) gigabit networking 6 SATA III ports, a SATA Express port and I think an M.2 port as well My UEFI BIOS Settings Load optimized defaults (unless you really know what you're doing) XMP #1 Enabled (enabling my 1866 RAM) All boot options set to UEFI or UEFI Only Optional: Enable ErP, ASPM and other features if desired, but only after you've successfully installed and booted (save yourself the headache ) None of what follows is my original work, so I'll be sure to credit the source and provide relevant links. Preparation Obtain the latest version of Clover, the wonderful UEFI boot loader that makes the rest possible. Follow the directions in any Yosemite guide to prepare a USB drive for installation. Install Clover to that drive, following the "For UEFI Motherboards" instructions. Use my config.plist.zip, or take care creating or modifying your own. Store Mieze's superb AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext, toleda's clever CloverALC script, rampagedev's SSDT and of course FakeSMC.kext from HWSensors on your drive. You'll recall the last from the Yosemite guide, no doubt! Build and boot your machine to UEFI/BIOS, and configure your settings (note mine above). Boot your USB drive to the OS X Installer. Refer to Clover's documentation on fixes and kernel boot options if you're having trouble. Post-Installation Installation should run without issue. I recommend partitioning your drive with Disk Utility first, using GPT. After installation, feel free to reboot. Keeping your installer USB attached should allow you to boot your newly installed OS, but... ... You'll need to install Clover on the system drive, so be sure to do so and remember to include your FakeSMC and netwokring kexts for injection. toleda's script should take care of everything for you regarding audio, except he currently requires a manual patch for this particular CODEC. It isn't hard, and the necessary patch is in my config.plist.zip. And you're done! Or at least you're as far as I am . Enjoy.! Troubleshooting I still get kernel panics that I cannot attribute to any particular source (likely audio—it was a pain to get working in Yosemite for me). Sometimes networking doesn't come up. Don't even ask me about Messages, "Convection" or whatever new Apple services are coming out. No guarantees that this build will be easy or worth your time, but I sure enjoyed getting it running. That said, a few considerations for troubleshooting: I start by trying to Safe Boot (hit spacebar in Clover with proper OS selected). Does that work? If not, where are you getting stuck? Check your kernel boot options and other Clover settings, and make sure your kexts are present and in the appropriate directory on your boot drive. Can't get audio to work? I often have to rebuild the kernel cache then reboot. sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -Boot -U / Networking is pretty solid thanks to Mieze's kext. But I do sometimes have issues that a reboot or reloading of the kext seems to resolve. Go figure.
  14. Hi everyone, I've another problem, now all work but I've a problem with Clover, I can't make it works, I've formatted the EFI partition in FAT32 and installed Clover in the EFI partition, I marked the partition as active and when I boot it up I get this. Any ideas? - ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.0) - Intel Core i7-2600 - Kingston DDR3 8GB - Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB GDDR5
  15. Hello all, I have three hard drives in my setup: two dedicated to Mac OS X and its backup, and one for Windows. I'm trying to get both OSes (Ubuntu boots via USB) to play nicely. Clover is installed to the EFI partition of the Mac OS X hard drive. It's also set as the default boot device. Mac version here shouldn't matter, and I run Windows 8.1 Pro. I have also applied SSDT and DSDT patches via aml files. I don't know if Clover injects those into non-Mac OSes. When I did a fresh UEFI reinstall of Windows, both the USB installer and the resulting Windows hard drive booted fine from Clover's menu. BUT, once I installed Nvidia's 337.88 WHQL driver or the CUDA 6 driver, Clover boots Windows into a black screen. The spinning wheel is there, but after that the desktop does not load. Booting via the UEFI boot device selection in the BIOS into the Windows Boot Manager makes the graphics work, but then what's the point of installing Clover? What's interesting is that Clover boots Windows not from Clover's EFI file but the Windows's bootmgfw.efi file (or at least that's the theory). So to Windows, it should be the same as booting natively without a Clover layer. But obviously it's not. The screen doesn't work. Anyone know a fix to this? Thanks! *Addition* Monitors are running through a Gigabyte GTX770 4GB, dual display on both DVI slots. Since Windows is going to be mainly for gaming use, I'd prefer if these monitors stay in these slots...
  16. This guide will discuss the process of getting OS X Mavericks or Yosemite to run on Vostro 3450 / Inspiron N4110 / XPS L702x using UEFI Clover, no other discussions please. I should start by saying that I'm not responsible for any bricks that may happen if you follow this guide and I'm not saying I will be updating this with every bit of changes I do to my personal system after every minor OSX upgrade. Though, with this kind of setup you shouldn't have to lift a finger after installing OSX updates... Also, don't mirror my files! This is your goal: I'm sure if you ended up here you probably know the majority of limitation that Phoenix SecureCore Tiano firmware applies to this system, but I'll mention them none the less: - Can't boot GPT formatted disk with legacy bootloader such as XPC, Chameleon, Chi*mera - Can't boot UEFI OS or bootloader as UEFI is locked down from the factory - Cardreader is not bootable - Secondary disk installed in place of DVD drive is not bootable either - BIOS doesn't let you disabled Turbo Boost or Hyper Threading So, let's get to the point, shall we? 1. Flashing a UEFI-capable modified BIOS BIOS images are meant only for Dell Vostro 3450, Inspiron N4110 and XPS L702x (both Intel model and AMD/nVidia models) and no other! Vostro 3350 and 3550 use AMI Aptio BIOS, not SecureCore Tiano! Modified BIOS images includes the following changes: - Unlocked write access to MSR 0xE2 - credits to RevoGirl; - Unlocked Advanced Setup options (includes UEFI Boot option) - credits to jkbuha, HairyCube and myself; - CPUID 206A7h microcode updated to V28 - credits to jkbuka (again) and Florin9doi; - Video BIOS for Intel updated from 2098 to 2170 with GOP protocol support (bring 1366x768 resolution to GUI) - credits to Ash; - BIOS DSDT modified to fix Dell's ACPI syntax screw-up while checking for MBT (media buttons) - credits for PhoenixTool fix in 2.14 to AndyP. In order to flash the modified BIOS image you have to obtain it first. Make sure to read the enclosed readme. - Vostro 3450 A13-C4: LINK - Inspiron N4110 A12-C4: LINK - XPS 17 L702x A19-C4: LINK Use WinFlash method if you are on stock DELL BIOS. If you already have UEFI capable BIOS I recommend using PFlash method to prevent BIOS settings from being reset. When you are done flashing go to your BIOS Setup and navigate to Advanced tab, go to Boot Configuration section and enable UEFI Boot. 2. How to install OSX In case you want to boot Legacy Windows from primary HDD (because let's face it, Dell made it pretty hard to use UEFI Windows with all the freezing issues caused by their proprietary software while having a UEFI installation) and you have a caddy in place of your DVD drive with a disk you want to dedicate to booting OSX simply put you can't do that by default BIOS means as caddy is not bootable. You can only make it bootable as a UEFI medium and there is why this guide was even put together. Also I should mention that booting Legacy Windows from UEFI Clover is a big no go with Tiano firmware, so don't expect that. The only way to access Legacy Windows is to either use F12 and choosing Hard Disk or exiting Clover. Now go ahead and download Clover bootloader that you will need for this guide : Required Pre Installation files: LINK 2.1. You have to have a flash drive prepped with UEFI Clover (no need to prepare it in some weird way, just copy the files to it). Just format the flashdrive to FAT32 and put the contents of "UEFI Clover USB" onto it. N.B. Make sure to rename EFI/CLOVER/config-17 or config-14 (depending on the computer model) to just config.plist, EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched-17 and patched-14 to just patched respectively! 2.2. You need a second flash drive as well as an access to a genuine Apple computer (or a VM) that is capable of accessing Mac AppStore in order to download the free Mavericks installation app. Then, using DiskMakerX application you have to make a bootable OSX drive. 2.3. When that's done use UEFI Clover USB drive to boot your OSX medium and partition your HDD in the DVD caddy as you desire, but make sure partition map is GPT. You can then install OSX to that target disk while you are at it. The installation process is usually subdivided into 2 stages. 3. Post installation I've put together a convenient installer that allows you to put some needed finishing touched to your OSX installation on your supported DELL laptop. Go ahead and download the installer (only OSX 10.9 & 10.10 is supported): DELL SCT OSX Support Package v1.1.3 - HERE | - PREV - When you run the installer you will need to select the destination disk you are installing it to. Please note, the files will be copied to EFI System Partition of active boot disk. - Select laptop model - Select motherboard type - Select daughterboard type - Select wireless module (limited support available) - Select "About This Mac" customizations for either Vostro, Inspiron, XPS - Select applications to install If you are installing Support Package for the first time new serial numbers for MBP8,1 model identifier will be generated automatically, if you are reinstalling and already have your config in EFI partition serial numbers will be retained. The installer will put CLOVER onto your system partition and install all the necessary kernel extensions (preconfigured) to support your hardware. 4. Adding Clover to your F12 Boot Manager When you have installed the Dell SCT OSX Support Package package remove your Clover USB drive, reboot your laptop and boot into Clover GUI, press F3 and start the Shell entry that has appeared. While in shell you first need to determine what is the number of file system of the EFI System Partition on your DVD caddy drive. Perform the command: map fs* The ESP on the GPT disk will be marked as GPT,1 and is usually either fs2 or fs3. Let's assume fs3 is ESP. We don't want the BOOT folder as it won't ever be bootable with HDD sitting in DVD caddy, so we get rid of that: fs3: cd \EFI rm -r BOOT Then, to add custom Clover Boot Manager entry you need to do the following: bcfg boot add 3 fs3:\EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi "Clover" We used 3 here as by default in BIOS 0 is diagnostics, 1 is Bios Setup and 2 is Boot Manager. Now, go to your BIOS Setup and just for emergency set the boot order as follows: - USB - CD/DVD Drive - Clover - Hard Disk - eSata - Network - Removable Disk Having this boot order configuration first off will be as a precaution if something ever happens and you can't start the laptop normally, so USB as the first device will allow you to boot a crisis bios recovery PFlash.efi with a BIOS capsule. Also, this kind of boot order will allow you to boot legacy Windows installed on your primary HDD by just exitting Clover, so there won't be a need to go to boot menu (F12) to select HDD when you need to boot Windows. You can add Shell binary to boot menu the same way, you just have to point it to the other EFI application: bcfg boot add 9 fs3:\EFI\CLOVER\tools\Shell64U.efi "Shell" That's it. If you followed the guide at this point you should have a fully working OS X Mavericks installation. 5. Known issues If anyone has any insights on fixing these remaining problems on this range of machines I would be very grateful. So far the problems are as follows: 1. Wireless interface toggle hotkey (Fn+F2) doesn't work in UEFI mode and causes system to freeze, hence it was disabled in OSX ACPI using a custom patch. This is caused by a buggy UEFI implementation by DELL, which is the reason they originally locked it down from the factory. Use software toggles to control status of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. 2. HD3000 still has the ability to utilize VGA port with some minor annoyances, namely - no hotplug support. You have to connect the monitor before you start OSX and when you unplug the monitor in running system, OSX will still think it's connected until you reboot. 3. No support for docking mode for HDMI connector (works ok with VGA), meaning if you close the LID when HDMI screen or projector is connected laptop will enter sleep. 4. Having HDMI screen connected during shutdown and restart will cause the system to stall. Turn of the screen and unplug from laptop before shutting down or restarting. 5. On XPS L702x HDMI connector is physically linked to NVIDIA chip and therefore will not work in OSX due to Optimus being unsupported. DisplayPort connector is linked with Intel graphics and is known to work. 6. Soft rebooting from Windows into OSX will leave the headphone socket non-operational until you cold boot OSX.

    Sony Vaio Duo 11

    Hello everyone! First of all, I'd really like to say thanks to all these that contribute to this "scene" - or as it was said int he quiz, "hobby". Yestarday, I bought a Vaio duo 11 to side with my MacBook and I knew about hackintosh, so I had all the resources - especially, a real mac - just at hand, and tried everything out. Here are my results: Prepairing a usb device with myHack: Works like a charm. But you seriously must make sure you use MBR. Otherwise, it's acting funny. Thus, make sure you DISABLE intel VT and XHPI mode in BIOS. But once that is done, it just...boots. Installing Clover to a GPT formatted drive: Yes, works, but not OOB. To get Clover to boot, do this: 1. Download the Clover EFI package. 2. Start the installer, click "Select volume" and then your volume, then click next. 3. Now click customize. Here, you gotta check "Install to ESP", "Drivers64" and under themes, check the "metal" theme - it's the default. You may check another theme as well so you have an option later. I recommend bootcamp, its very nice for your eyes and if you used a mac before, its just like "Aha!". 4. Now we gotta edit the EFI files. Since a sort of "bug" in the clover installer, it lets the EFI partition stay mounted...which it actually shouldn't imo. Anyway, we can use that fact for something good. ( In case it didn't stay mounted, read my footnotes below. ) Open your Finder, and open the EFI partition. Or, press CMD+SHIFT+G and type /Volumes/EFI and hit ENTER. In there, open the EFI folder and create a new folder called BOOT. In this folder, you'll copy the files CLOVERX64.efi, CLOVERIA32.efi AND the config.plist file. Now rename the CLOVER files into boot - i.e.: BOOTX64.efi. If you installed a different theme, like the bootcamp one, open config.plist BEFORE you copy your files, edit the Theme setting and THEN copy the file into the BOOT folder. 5. You should end up with a structure like this: /Volumes/EFI/ /Volumes/EFI/EFI/ /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/ /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/BOOTIA32.efi /Volumes/EFI/BOOT/config.plist /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/......... Now, plug the device into your Vaio, press the ASSIST key, select "Boot from external" and Clover should pop up. However, when I use clover to boot, I get stuck at a "Waiting for root device" message - it obviously waits for a device. Its the same error that occured to some other people, and it is actulyl the only message in which you'll see a piece of XML! However, it looks like it has troubble with some drivers. I sadly don't have all the myHack drivers at hand, nor do I know how to install them myself. By the way, I used an entirely vanilla install of OS X. I used the one I bought from the App Store. Thus, I placed the Extras folder that is put into the drive's root by myhack into my clover folder into kexts/10.8 - of course, i moved the contents of the folder into the one i just mentioned, otherwise it wouldnt work...afaik o.o; As soon as I manage to get this working, Ill inform you. Again, when I legacy-boot Mac with chamelion and the image created by myHack, it works like a charm. I just didnt install it because I dont want to wipe my windows just yet Regards, Ingwie Phoenix EDIT 1 I managed to determine how myHack installed the image...and what mistake I did. You have to restore from InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg first - then copy al the files fromt he root of InstallESD.dmg into the device as well. In other words, merge InstallESD and BaseSystem. Also, use myHack and run myFix to integrate all the missing kexts. that totally worked for me. I am now EFI booiting OS X. Touchscreen - who didnt expect it? - doesnt work. Stylus does, but with some oddities. Wifi isnt recognized yet. I dont know about the rest yet. Also, to boot up, you need to use Safe Mode (3rd entry in Clover when hiting spacebar on the OS X icon.)

  22. Hello, I have a Asus Z87-Pro MB (so with a UEFI bios), and I want to create a dual-boot hackintosh. I already have Windows 8.1 installed on a SSD, that I don't want to loose. My plan is to install 10.9 on a seperate SSD, and then dual-boot it (with Clover I suppose, since it is UEFI). So is there a way to install 10.9 on this seperate SSD without losing my existing W8.1 installation, and create a dual-boot? Maybe my question is answered somewhere, but I can't seem to find a suitable answer. Thank you! Robbe
  23. Hello I'm trying to switch from chameleon as boot loader to clover, but somehow it won't work. I'm using a Windows 8/Mavericks dual boot system and I'm trying to boot into Windows 8 with Clover, but to no avail. I see the Windows 8 logo for a millisecond, then the hackintosh just reboots. I can boot into Mavericks, though. Mavericks and Windows 8 are on two different SSDs. Windows is installed in UEFI-mode. What to do? Any help is greatly appreciated Greetz N
  24. I have a Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 that was running BIOS F10 and Mavericks using Chameleon. I wanted to upgrade my BIOS to UEFI and read that you should first delete the DSDT file from my Extras folder prior to upgrading. I was having problems creating a DOS bootable USB, so I tried a billion different ways, and lo and behold, one of them finally worked and the autoexec.bat file that Gigabyte includes automatically started patching my BIOS. One problem -- I didn't delete the DSDT file from my Extras folder. Now when I try to boot from my hard drive, it instantly goes into kernel panic (I've tried safe mode and a bunch of different flags). Granted, I'm not sure if it's the DSDT that's causing this conflict/panic, but I suspect that's at least one of my issues. It could also be that I'm using an older version of Chameleon that doesn't support UEFI BIOS? I know I should have had a backup and alternative method of booting, but now I can't access my system, so my troubleshooting options are limited. What are my options here? So far I've come up with: 1) Try to create an OS X boot disk on USB, boot to the installer, and then try to delete the DSDT from the Extras folder on my hard drive via Terminal; 2) Create another boot USB that has Chameleon/Clover installed and has all my kexts but without the DSDT to hopefully boot into my system and then fix the boot partition on my local hard drive Can anyone else suggest any better solutions? Thanks in advance!
  25. Informações deste Notebook: i5-3210M | 4GB 1600MHz | HD 4000 | Audio - Cx20590 | Wifi - AR9285 | Network - Atheros AR8162 - BIOS: Insyde H2O - 3.7 Clover UEFI Esse tutorial é para instalar o Clover em UEFI no Lenovo G480. 1 - Para instalar os sistemas operacionais no modo UEFI, seu BIOS precisa ter a opção UEFI Boot e ela precisa ser ativada. 2 - Observe que quando essa opção está ativa, aparece UEFI/EFI antes do nome do drive. Formate um pen drive como FAT32 e instale o Clover nele. Para esse Notebook você precisa ter pelo menos esse drivers na pasta /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. Depois de instalar, crie a pasta EFI/BOOT no pen drive e copie o arquivo EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi para EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi Inicie o sistema pelo pen drive para testar o boot UEFI. Se deu tudo certo, e o sistema está redondo com tudo funcionando, é hora de instalar o Clover em EFI. Para isso a EFI tem que ser formatada em FAT32. O "x” é o numero da sua partição EFI. Vamos usar o Terminal: diskutil list sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/diskXs1 Agora vamos montar a EFI: mkdir /Volumes/EFI sudo mount_msdos /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI Crie a pasta EFI na partição EFI. Copie a pasta EFI/Clover do pen drive para a pasta EFI da partição EFI. Reinicie com o pen drive inserido. Use o Pen como boot, agora no menu do Clover entre na opção Clover Boot Options e selecione Add as UEFI boot option. Essa opção só ira aparecer se o modo UEFI estiver ativado A partir de agora você conseguirá iniciar sem o pen drive, pelo Clover da partição EFI, no modo UEFI. Um adendo, quando estiver com tudo preparado, exclua os outros drivers das pastas drivers32UEFI, drivers32 e drivers64.
