  1. Hi, have an old Asrock X58 Deluxe motherboard with an i7-920 Nehalem CPU (yes old board ) + AMD RX460 . As per the title, i've managed to get Mojave installed and running with Speed Step working too! Final issue i'm having is with sleep - it sleeps fine and even responds to keyboard/mouse event, but instead of waking up to the desktop it restarts and loads from BIOS boot screen. When finally booted into macos, it restores as if restored from unexpected shutdown (though no error is shown). I've tried for days to get it working, sometimes depending on clover config changes, I can get it to wake up without reboot, but it just remains at a black screen and is unresponsive. I have no custom DSDT, i've tried writing one but don't know really know what i'm looking for? Currently relying on clover patches. I've uploaded my original DSDT (dumped from Clover, F4 option) + current config. Anyone have any ideas? dsdt original.zip config.plist.zip
  2. Asus Sabertooth x58 i7 920 12 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz DDR3 Asus GTX 760-DC20C-2G5D Initial 10.9 Mavericks install via myHack with "GraphicsEnabler=No" boot flag (sytem stuck in boot loop without it) Post install via M*****6.5.1 DSDT from Fabio's 10.7 on sabertooth x58 guide GTX 760 works perfect out of the box Ethernet via RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7.mpkg installer Onboard Audio via HDAEnabler892.kext Everything seems to be working perfectly...except, whenever I go to restart, via the toolbar or app installer the system won't fully shut down. OSX closes out, the screen goes black, the no signal message pops up, the HD activity indicator light is solid dark, but the fans keep running and I have to manually hit the reset button on the front of the case to reset the system. Restart worked initially, prior to the post installations... Update: Installed EvOreboot.kext in /System/Library/Extensions. I THOUGHT that fixed it, but... The system will now restart normally if the restart is initiated by an installer or other application, but not if initiated from the menu bar, in which case it shuts down OSX but the fans continue to run and the system never resets. I will keep searching and reading, if anyone can point me in the right direction I would super appreciate it.
  3. Hello everyone, I have an issue with the lastest clover revision that I did not had with rev. 4077 using BiosBlockIO. Clover hangs at "Scanning entries...". To be able to boot, I must install without using BiosBlockIO but Sata instead. I'd like to use BiosBlockIO as I have RocketRaid 2720SGL that is faster than my Rampage 3 Extreme ICH10 controller (the same is true with Marvell controller) and is only bootable with this option. If I revert back to rev 4077, it does not hang... Is anyone having an idea about this issue ? Thanks
  4. Hello everybody, At the momenti i have a fully working yosemite 10.10.3 on this build MB: asus sabertooth x58 CPU: intel i7 920 overclocked @ 4.0 ghz Ram: 24 GB team group elite (6x4gb) HD: Western Digital Caviar Green 500 GB (yosemite) HD: Western digital Caviar Green 1TB (data) SSD: samsung 840 evo 250 gb (windows) GPU: 2way sli of zotac gtx 580 I know that on the hackintosh side of things there's nothing sure and safe, but will it be so difficoult or all i'll need is just a kext upgrade? All the hardware will be the same, just gpu change. Thanks in advance.
  5. Maybe I'll get a better response if I post my own topic on the issue. First of all, here's my system: i7 930 @ 4ghz 12GB DDR3-1600 GTX 680 2gb Asus Rampage III Extreme (Bios 1502) Corsair Force 3 120GB (Windows 7) Seagate 500gb 7200.11 on onboard Intel SATA Controller, AHCI mode (for OS X) 8GB USB Flash Drive for installation Snow Leopard install on VMWare for prepping bootable USB. I've checked out numerous guides on how to install Mountain Lion on my PC (vanilla and myHack, don't want to try ###### type methods yet), but none of them get me to the install screen. They all fail a few seconds after the initial boot options screen with the error "Errors encountered while starting up the computer", after which it reboots in 5 seconds. I've tried -x, -s, -v, -f, PCIRootUID=0, PciRoot=1, GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes, none of which seem to matter. The last kext that loads prior to it displaying that error is "TMSafetyNet.kext". Any ideas? I don't seem to be making ANY progress and I'm just close to giving up since nobody seems to be experiencing the same issues. Thanks!
  6. Hi all, I've got 10.6.8 running on my desktop, which has an EVGA X58 board with a Core i7 (specifically the EVGA 131-GT-E767-TR and the Intel Core i7-950. I used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to install, and I've got everything working so far, except for speedstep. The i7 makes my tiny apartment pretty hot running at 3 GHz nonstop. The computer will not boot unless NullCPUPowerManagement.kext is in /E/E. If I remove it, I get a kernel panic (error 13, general protection) from AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext as soon as darwin starts booting. This is what I have in /Extra to get a booting system: sh-3.2# ls -lh /Extra/Extensions total 0 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102B Jan 7 2011 ALC8xxHDA.kext drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102B May 14 2011 FakeSMC.kext drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102B Aug 29 2009 IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext sh-3.2# cat /Extra/smbios.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">'>http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>Mac Pro</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F42C88C8</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>G88451235J4</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>######.tonymacx86.com</string> </dict> </plist> sh-3.2# cat /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=x86_64 busratio=23 npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1200x32@60</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist> In S/L/E I've added ALC892HDA.kext (to enable audio) PHXCD.kext (for USB 3.0) AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext (to /S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins) The rest I accomplished by patching my DSDT, as described here. However, I get the same kernel panic without NullCPUPowerManagement regardless of whether I use my DSDT or additional kexts. I also get the panic regardless of whether or not I use 32 or 64 bit or include or busratio=23 in my boot.plist. I've tried disabling unused controllers and ports in my BIOS. I've also set my speedstep options to "Enabled" and "C1E" in my BIOS, and set HPET to "Enabled" and "64 bit", as recommended in other posts I've read. My BIOS is currently updated to the latest version, and speedstepping works fine on this machine in Windows and Linux. I've also tried EvoSpeedStep.kext, but I get the same panic. This panic seems common with EVGA X58 boards, and there was some interesting discussion about the issue by d00d, banini_jeque, and others in these threads: Vanilla Speedstep on EVGA X58 SLI EVGA X58 Speedstep attempts with bios version >= 44 Evga X58 Native Powermanagement With Bios 44 And Newer Evga X58 Native Powermanagement With Bios 44 And Newer270-WS-W555 DSDT native power management modifications I tried everything mentioned in those threads, but nothing worked.No one ever seemed to come up with a solution. This thread at InfiniteMac seems to be the most comprehensive, but in OP, it states: Since all those threads are over a year old, I was wondering if anyone else had managed to get this working since then. Thanks guys!
  7. To do an initial boot or install of 10.9 / 10.10 using clover optionally w/ out a DSDT to start with: Clover: -For testing install to USB flash i formatted MBR/FAT32. (Start with this; saves tons of time) -For install to HDD I did not have to pre-format the EFI as a msdos partition. Not sure why it persists as a recommendation in some places. Let the Clover installer handle things. Currently running Clover r3202. Installer settings I used are as follows : -Install Clover in the ESP -Bootloader : Install boot0af in MBR -CloverEFI : CloverEFI 64-bits SATA -Themes : BootCamp -Add HFSPlus.efi driver in drivers64 and drivers64efi/ in place of the vbox version. (not sure if it is needed in both) -Add kext HWSensors + FakeSMC 6.11.1363 to */EFI/Clover/kexts/10.9 and /10.10/ respectively. Obviously it works installed in S/L/E as well. -Add kext for 8111E Ethernet : I used Mieze's Realtek8111.kext version 2.0.0b2. Worked well installed in appropriate /kexts/10.x/ for injection. Go to http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287161-new-driver-for-realtek-rtl8111/ for instructions. Current version 2.0.0b2 was here : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287161-new-driver-for-realtek-rtl8111/page-46?do=findComment&comment=2127590 I was getting 110/MB/s read/write w/ brief testing. Slow to pickup DHCP initially. Gets you a device w/ a MAC address for en0 and should allow for app store to work as long as the OS sees it as built in. It can be checked later using CLI ioreg or IOJones or similar; if I recall ethernet device should be GIGE if DSDT is properly patched or the lanfix2000 is enabled in clover. Depending on configuration it may be best to remove all other network devices prior to your first boot. This is what I did and may not be best-practices. A functional app store login seems to require a proper MAC address, evidently on a built-in connection. I cannot corroborate the claims that it has to be the MAC of an Apple ethernet or airport device for 10.10 stuff. It worked for me with my realtek as en0/built-in on both 10.9 and 10.10 app store. -Tried 2 different intel 1000/PT dual port worked as well but is freezing up (just the NIC) under load. I presume there is some fix involving swapping a kext or id remap, but didn't pursue. -My Marvell Yukon 88E8053 single port (both sonnet tech branded and no-brand cards from taiwan) run perfectly with no changes on 10.9.x and 10.10.x -I initially commented out nearly everything in the installed config.plist (appended # before plist entities) This initial settings combo got me up and running w/out my DSDT in place : Boot flags : -v and kext-dev-mode=1 to be safe. My cloned install didn't required it for some reason (perhaps pre-relaxed sandbox settings) (I have thus far not needed npci=0x2000 or dart=0. Keep seeing dart=0 brought up as a fix for things and insofar as I can tell it is for VT-D issues; possibly only for AMI bios. These boards are Award. The x58 chipsets technically support VT-d but according to Gigabyte the ud3r v1 doesn't have VT-d support in the bios and the v2 version of the board can only enable it using beta bios versions from some hidden bios panel.) Graphics: (same behavior w/ 10.9.2 thru 10.10.3) For GTX 770 disable nvidia inject. Leaving it on will result in the 0mb VRAM cosmetic issue and single display only operation. -Doesn't run at full performance oob. Core clock never hits full speed. (need AppleGraphicsPowerManagement patch or equivalent workaround). -w/ 10.9.2 display port wasn't running 4k resolutions above 30hz. For Radeon HD 6850/70 enable ati inject. -was able to run 3440x1440@30Hz via HDMI (in 10.10) which is beyond printed spec for the card. -issues w/ 10.9 where screen would boot black w/ only DVI. Display on miniDP or just a active adapter with no display would work around issue. SMBIOS: The initial automatic smbios setup generates a smbios for imac11,2 ; not a more appropriate 1366 Mac. The iMac SMBIOS didn't interfere with getting things booted initially. I use MacPro5,1 and regardless of which is chosen it is probably best to set the ProductName string under SMBIOS in config.plist before first boot. Doesn't seem to mess up startup either way but certain SMBIOS keys need to be present for iCloud and similar to work. In my case I set no other keys and I was able to re-login to the app store and iCloud keychains after migrating my existing user directory from a 10.9.5 Chameleon hack to a 10.10.3 Clover hack. Not sure if this side-steps some pitfalls with getting iCloud to work properly. Misc DSDT / Clover Fixes : USB settings : Inject, Add ClockID and FixOwnership all enabled. (not sure if these are all required; but I experienced boot issues during testing that may have necessitated 'Inject' being enabled) ACPI / DSDT settings / patches : (** denotes required for GA-x58 as best as I can tell) FixDisplay ; FixHPET ** ; AddDTGP ; FixHDA ; FixLAN ** ; FixAirport ; FixShutdown ; FixFirewire ** ; FixIPIC ; NewWay ; FixRegions ** ; FIX_RTC ** ; AddIMEI ; DeleteUnused ** ; FIX_ADP1 ; AddPNLF ; FIX_S3D ; FIX_ACST ; AddHDMI ; Apple RTC ** Checked SSDT Enable : GeneratePStates ; GenerateCStates ; EnableC6 Drop tables : SSDT string : Cpu0Ist SSDT string : CpuPM In my case leaving the fixes activated after putting a DSDT in place did not cause noticeable issues. My DSDT lacked the equiv FixEthernet / FixFirewire due to age All of this gets a vanilla mavericks and yosemite up and running enough to get things configured.
