  1. Hi All I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation: - MSI B350 PC Mate - Ryzen 5 - 2600 - Radeon Pro 580 GPU - 4 x 8GB DDR4 (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes... ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2" Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX. So can someone help... I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen. In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1 In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67 In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well) But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help... Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...
  2. If you get the Unknown CPU in About This Mac you can use the following settings according to your processor. Use IORegistry Explorer or IOJones to check the current "cpu-type" value for your processors. You can find the value by clicking the CPU0@0 like shown in the picture below: I have an Intel Core i7 6700K so the value is 0507. For Core i3 Series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0309 = Core i3 For Core i5 series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0407 0x0601 or 0x0605 (to be more accurate) = Intel Core i5 For Core i7 Series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0701 or 0x0705 (to be more accurate) = Intel Core i7 You can also try 0x0507 if the values above didn't work. For Xeon Series you can set the CPU type to: 0x0505 Dual-Core Intel Xeon 0x0510 Quad-Core Intel Xeon 0x05A5 Quad-Core Intel Xeon
