  1. ****************************************************************************************************************************** IF YOU WANT A RAW COPY (THAT INCLUDES ACTUAL FORMATTING) OF THIS UNFINISHED GUIDE, ASK ME THROUGH PRIVATE MESSAGE, THEN MODIFY IT AND SEND IT BACK TO ME THROUGH PRIVATE MESSAGE, IT'LL BE A PLEASURE TO UPDATE IT, BUT I'M NOT ACTIVE HERE ANYMORE -- ALSO, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO HAVE THIS THREAD'S OWNERSHIP CHANGED AND WANT TO OWN IT, LET ME KNOW HOW TO PROCEED AS I DO NOT WISH TO KEEP IT FOR ME, THANKS! ****************************************************************************************************************************** Hi, I'm starting this new topic in the hope to, progessively, create a guide for a vanilla (as much as possible) OS X Installation on Z400/Z600/Z800 Workstations. I invite you to participate in the comments so that this topic becomes an easy-to-follow guide. The idea of doing this emerged from information exchanged with other members (proteinshake, MacPeet, zhangtemplar, MacUser2525, nitelava & apav) in topic titled "Fix my HP! Just a few random DSDT-edits to improve your HacMac experience." originally created by proteinshake. Main goals of this guide Explain manual procedures; Avoid "magical" utilities, but don't ignore them (they can sometimes be time/life savers); Make you become independent & aware of the inner mechanics of creating a functional Hackintosh, so that you can repeat & adapt those procedures for future hackintosh projects. *** AS THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS TOPIC, I WILL NEED SOME HELP TO GATHER ACCURATE INFORMATION *** HELP NEEDED, PLEASE READ THIS SECTION, THANKS! As I only own a Z400 Workstation, I'd need you (those who own Z600 and Z800 Workstations) to send me your lspci output. To do so, you have 2 options: Boot with a Linux LiveCD (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post); If you already have an OSX version installed, you'll need to install lspci (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post). Type the following command : lspci -nnvv >~/Desktop/lspci-nnvv_output.txt If you are using Linux, please also type this command (before creating the following, make sure you updated your BIOS to v03.57) : sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml OR: sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml (whichever works for you) Copy those files to a USB flash drive, send them to yourself by email or whatever other method you want. Then, reply to this topic mentionning which workstation you have, and attach the file(s) created above. ALSO, if you got Clover to boot your Z400 / Z600 / Z800 Worktation, PLEASE send us your config.plist so that we can have a starting point. I'm trying to switch from Chameleon to Clover, but I'm still unable to fix a Kernel Panic I have; I will report it with a screenshot soon in the comments, maybe some of you might know why I get it. Requirements Another Mac or Hackintosh machine; 8GB+ USB flash drive; BIOS updated to latest version (v03.57, 2013-09-20 release, found HERE); This is mandatory for 2 reasons : patched DSDT files included in this guide will not work (properly) if you use a different BIOS version; that latest BIOS version fixes possible erratic behaviours with Xeon 3600 & 5600 CPU series. Z400/Z600/Z800 specific files (see Z400/Z600/Z800 specific information sections further below). BIOS setup instructions (eventually, there will be screenshots) You must set your hard drive controller to AHCI+RAID mode, else you won't be able to use your SATA devices. ...

  3. 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.

  4. This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC. It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) : Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection. Prerequisites Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer” Procedure 1. Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag 2. Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line. The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System".... sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3. Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info” 4. Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume” 5. Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist. NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages 6. Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel 7. Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder. 8. Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel….. sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g. 9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume 10. Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI.... Post Install The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts. In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer: 1. Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag 2. Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel 3. Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder 4. Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel. In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else... sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume. This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite). 6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan! Other links The All-In-One Guide to Vanilla OS X for beginners Updates for Sierra and High Sierra Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan. Instructions: 1. Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder. 2. Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3. Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem 4. Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop. macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13. BaseSystem_PLK.tool_ElCap.zip BaseSystem_PLK.tool_Sierra.zip BaseSystem_PLK.tool_Mojave.zip (need to run in Mojave to avoid dependency errors)

    CINTIQ COMPANION 2!

    ***************UPDATE 7/18/2015**************** WORKING -wireless with card found here (https://partstore.com/Part/Lenovo/Lenovo/20200480/Refurbished.aspx) And kexts in new kext pack from rehabman. Thanks to chuppiejones! -Battery stat (thanks to srinn for the DSDT edit!!!) -bluetooth OOB (no turn off option, might need work) -brightness and graphic acceleration -sound (with voodookext from rehabman) -touch/pen (with stock wacom driver from website) -Micro SD OOB -All USB ports OOB NOT WORKING -volume rocker (i got it to work with one click then after it doesnt work) -sleep (automatically wakes up) -SD fullsize (not recognized) The SD card not working seems like good news and bad news to me, the bad news, it doesnt work, the good news this might be the reason sleep isnt working either. So hopefully we can kill two birds with one stone. For this install I will be using two USB drives, one as an installer the second to install to. Alternatively you could create two partitions on the installer USB if its big enough (16gb or larger) and install to the second partition this however will slow down the install. Later when I have the install stable enough I will extend this guide to make it an internal multi boot guide. Also please note that the USB drive you use seems to be quite important. A fast USB3.0 drive is necessary for the computer to recognize it at boot otherwise it will always boot into windows. I had trouble with this and could only find a couple drives (very new) that would work, all my older drives werent recognized fast enough to load the clover boot menu. _____Creating USB INSTALLER_____ -Download yosemite from the mac app store - put a thumb drive into your mac and open disk utility. -Partition the drive as GUID with MAC os extended journaled format -name the drive Yosemite -open terminal and copy and paste this command sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume/Volumes/Yosemite --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --no interaction Installing clover Now open Clover_v2.3k_r3185 (the version im currently using and will include in the zip file), click Continue > Continue > Change Install Location Select the “Installer” partition you made. Click Customize Select Install for UEFI booting only select one theme ( I prefer bootcamp) Under Drivers64UEFI select -EmuVariableUefi-64 -OsxAptioFixDrv-64 -PartitionDxe-64 Then click install. Customizing clover with our files When its finished you will notice a new mounted partition/drive on your computer called EFI, this is the hidden boot partition of your installer drive. Navigate to EFI > EFI > CLOVER > kexts Paste the fakesmc kext included in the zip file into the "10.10" folder and the "other" folder. Navigate to the EFI > CLOVER > ACPI > Patched and paste all the .aml files from the DSDT folder in the included zip. Navigate to EFI > CLOVER and overwrite the current config.plist with the config.plist included in the zip file. Initial Install Once finished eject your newly made installer usb drive and plug it into the top usb port on your cintiq (this port seems to work best for me, but maybe im just crazy) Boot the device holding volume up to enter BIOS. In bios, go to the "boot" tab and disable all boot options but leave the first one as usb key. Have fast boot disabled. In "UEFI Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities" make sure everything is disabled as well as in "Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities. Im not sure this is all necessary but this is whats working for me. Save changes and exit. Essentially you should disable any internal drive from booting so it will look for your USB key. However I had issues and it kept booting windows anyway, mostly due to what I assume was a slow USB 2.0 drive. After switching to only USB3.0 drives and putting them in the top port, i didnt have the issue. Now when you boot the device it should load into the clover boot screen. Just select the installer and hit enter. This should boot into the OS X Yosemite installer without any issues. From here select the drive you want to install to. If you have to go into the disk utility and partition a drive. First boot up! Woohoo! When the install is finished the computer will restart. Boot back into clover this time selecting the new install. Download the most recent wacom cintiq driver for OSX and put it on your usb drive, install it and you should be good to go. I will update this with the different files as I make changes and get other things working. Keep in mind not all of this might be necessary and some of the options might not be the best in the config file. If anyone has any input feel free to let me know and I will update. Install pack version 3 7-18-2015 Added updated DSDT from srinn for working battery, removed acpiplatform kext Added kext files for working wifi with aftermarket card thanks to chuppiejones Companion2packV3.zip Install pack version 2 3-3-2015 ( OUTDATED ) Added sound and battery kexts. While i understand DSDT editing is the preferred method for battery to work, half way thru the process I found myself considering a gunshot to the face instead. I have some linux experience but it was just god damn frustrating and time consuming, especially knowing these kexts get the job done. If anyone wants to go thru with the DSDT edit for the battery I would gladly use/host it here with credit. Use kext wizard to install the kexts in the "kexts to install" folder, then repair permissions and rebuild caches. Companion2packV2.zip Install pack version 1 2-26-2015 ( OUTDATED ) Hey guys just wanted to set up a place holder for when I get the guide finished, but here is a video of me successfully running yosemite with full pen (prefpane, hotkey) and touch support!! really excited, finally seeing all the work i did for months on the previous model finally come to fruition is amazing!!

  8. Hello, everyone. I have an older Hackintosh. Running Yosemite. It was doing very well for me for quite some time until earlier this year. A few minutes after startup, and it crashes. I have tried the following: I removed all software that was set to launch on startup, including ProTec6. I have tried launching in safe mode. I have tried disconnecting the cables. I have tried disabling Ethernet in BIOS. That last option worked, and I then ran EtreCheck, and only saw that Sophos components were hanging around. (I must have removed Sophos at some point in the past.) No other significant errors were found, but I was unable to update EtreCheck without an Internet connection. Nor can I install Sophos anew without that connection. Connecting to the Internet will freeze the whole system a few minutes after starting. I suspect it might have been the VPN software I installed shortly before this craziness started. It was paid software (although I can't remember which right now), but I can't find any of its components among the running processes. I'm at my wits end... Any help will be gratefully acknowledged and acted on. FYI: Motherboard: Z97X-UD3H-BK CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K FY

  11. Hi I have installed dp2, upgraded to dp4, but had some slow boots and sleep was not working at all anymore, so back at dp2. The problem is the following. I can sleep, but when I want to wake via the usb keyboard or mouse, nothing happens. If I press a key the numlock lights stays on, but nothing happens. If I press the power button, after 4 seconds a fully working desktop, audio, usb, ... So in fact it works, but only through power button. Before I had ML, and it was just working from the start BUT I had Chimera and no UEFI booting. Now I installed with MacPWN method, clover with UEFI partition, MacPoison for post-installation (just hwmonitor and some tools like showAllFiles). Afterwards installed audio and usb 3 kexts, system still fast and stable, sleep working, wake only via power button. I have disconnected as many peripherals as possible, now only IGFX (DVI) with one screen, USB 2 keyboard and mouse on USB 2 rear ports, startup disk on white SATA3 port. All other internal wires that are not needed like bluray removed. I have tried also many BIOS settings: disable CPU PLL overvoltage in BIOS disable wake on lan in BIOS IGFX standby and deep standby disabled disable virtualization High Precision Event Timer: Enabled XMP profile disabled and enabled CPU frequencies default/oc Firewire disabled all marvell sata ports disabled CSM never Enabled enhanced halt and cpu monitor to activate speedstep other combinations I have flashed different bioses: F14, F15o, F16mod9, F16mod11 Removed nullcpu kext, rebuild caches Darkwake flag: No, 0, 1, 8, 10 Neverhibernate flag, xcpm flag, safe mode flag, ... SSDT patch of piker alpha SMBIOS mac mini 6.2, tried many other SMBIOS like macpro 3.1 6.1, mac mini 5, MacBook pro 8, 9,... Imac 12, 13, 14 and others... really many no difference in the end. Now I'm out of options, couldn't find anything relevant to my mobo, a Z77x-UD5H which worked. Since it is a known mobo I would like to ask the people who has the same, or almost the same mobo, how they fixed it in Yosemite? Or is it related to my CPU, the i3770K? I spend a lot of times and hours of searching the internet and forums but couldn't find a solution. Before I end up with grey hair, would like to call in your help! Thanks!
  12. I've had a successful and functioning hackintosh for a while now. It's running Yosemite and has Clover as the boot loader. I want to update to Sierra but am having trouble doing so. I have updated my Clover to the latest version and put the mandatory boot lefts in their folder within the EFI partition. I run the Install macOS Sierra app and when the PC restarts I boot into the Installer partition with verbose to make sure nothing goes wrong. But it does go wrong. I get an error that says: "Error loading kernel cache (0x9)" I'm not sure what this means. Can anyone help me. Is there any way I can get to Sierra? Specs: CPU: i7 3770 Mobo: OEM Acer Board (MC605) GPU: GTX 760 SC Below is a video of me trying to boot into the update partition. Also a note. I deleted OSXAptioFixDrv but kept OSXAptioFixDrv2 as it would give me another error when booting into the update partition. However now the option for me to boot into my existing Yosemite installation is gone. I'm not sure if these are related. Any help is appreciated.

    HP DV6 2150us install help

    Hello- So I have been trying dilligently for days to get OSX Yosemite installed on my HP Pavillion dv6 2150us laptop. I have tried all kinds of different flags and bios settings and in verbose i get all the way to a point where that screen looks like it changes to a GUI but it is garbled lines that i cant make anything of. I am looking for pretty much a walkthrough on how to get this working. I am using a legitimate copy of OSX Yosemite from my wifes MacBook Air but I would like to install El Capitan (which I can get from her MacBook when I update it). What would be the best bootloader for my install? Kexts? really any and all help would be appreciated. Attached are hardware and system info screenshots. Thank you all so much in advance. Its my first post but I have been lurking the forums for weeks getting tons of information from other's posts but I just haven't been able to get it right yet.

  17. This is a basic guide to getting El Capitan booting on a GA-Z77X-UD5H. I'll do my best to edit this post with updates and check in to answer any questions. The work here builds off of the pioneering efforts of xpamadeus, Hermit Crab Labs and the others named in the links below. If you feel your work has not been properly credited here please send me a PM so I can give credit where due. There have been reports of issues with my BIOS on rev1.0 boards. If you have a rev 1.0 BIOS, you may want to use one of the other Ozmosis bios files referenced in this thread. Guide: Back up any existing OSX systems before upgrading. Have another working OS install or computer on hand if your OSX install is unable to boot after following the guide. Mount your EFI partition. Mac Windows Copy the ozmosis defaults plist to EFI/Oz/Defaults.plist on the EFI partition. You may want to first edit the plist to use a unique system serial number. Copy the DSDT file to EFI/Oz/Acpi/Load/DSDT.aml on the EFI partition. Copy FakeSMC to EFI/Oz/Darwin/Extensions/Common/FakeSMC.kext on the EFI partition. Copy any other kexts for Ethernet/Sound to the same directory as FakeSMC on the EFI partition. These are optional as only the above files are needed to boot OSX. Flash your BIOS to 16g_oz1669_v1.fd Rev 1.1 board only! Your system is now ready to install/upgrade to OSX 10.11 "El Capitan". Troubleshooting: Caution, VoodooHDA may route microphone output through your speakers causing some awful feedback. Turn your speakers down or off till you can fix the levels. OSX partitions do not show up in F12 boot list after flashing oz1669: Check the Defaults.plist. I ran into this issue because I had a custom Defaults.plist that was missing many values needed to correctly show boot devices. If you already have an existing defaults plist, use the plist I have provided and overwrite the settings you want to keep from the old plist. Black screen on boot after installing patched AppleHDA to EFI partition: This happened to me and rendered OSX unbootable. I had to remove the patched HDA kext from Windows. Use VoodooHDA for now.

    Signal loss on GTX 980

    Hi all! I just recently got my EVGA SC ACX GTX 980 and installed Yosemite as well. After a successful install, I installed the NVIDIA web drivers and put the graphics card on my board, but on either HDMI or Displayport, I get a signal loss. Yet, when I use a DVI cable, it works fine. From what I've been reading, many people have been getting issues with getting both to work. I have used all three of the drivers (f01-f03) and still get the same results. What exactly do I need to do in order to get both HDMI and displayport to work properly?
  20. Hi to all This is my first time to attempt a DSDT patch but even if I read some guides using MaciASL I still don't know how to proceed. Before using Yosemite, I used VoodooBattery on Mavericks, but this solution is not working anymore. So I'm asking for some help in order to get battery management status. Also, for webcam (HP Truevision HD) that never worked even on Mavericks. Any help will be appreciated Thanks a lot

  22. Hi there Today I bought a new 27" display from Dell, the u2715h. Since my system is running with a gt8800 and I just have a dvi dual output I had to connect a hdmi adapter to a dvi d cable to connect this display. However, everything fine running this display at 2048 x 1152 @ 60 Hz but when I try to get full resolution to 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz I just get a black screen, the display tells me that it needs proper input, can't handle the signal. Any idea what I could try to fix this problem? Thx
  23. Hello all! Just had two kernel panics in a row and as I did some minor changes (mostly related to make iMessage work), I wanna to track it down. But, or am I wrong, or the logs are store in a different place. I tried on ~\Library\Logs\DiagnosticReports and also on Apple Menu > About This Mac > System Report > Software > Logs (then read kernel.log) but no traces of the error on these locations. Running Yosemite DP6 with Clover (also tried the Clover Folder on \Library\Logs) on the the machine of the signature. Has it changed place?
  24. IMPORTANT: CAUSED BY NEW APPLE VERIFICATION-STEPS, you need MLB (BoardSerialNumber) and ROM from a real Mac. The use of real mac MLB/ROM is a temporary solution. I always prefer to use generated IDs, but actually there is no way around. Note: This guide is for Clover users only. Please do not ask questions related to Chameleon or other Bootloaders. Please follow all steps, or at least read them all. You will probably need to call the Apple support to activate iMessage, but don’t worry, I will explain you what you need to do. Also try to change your IDs as less as possible, this is also why I advise you to disconnect temporary from internet after step 3. Never share your ID's and never believe or use ID's found on the internet! Requirements: Clover MLB & ROM from real Mac Clover Configurator ( http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/49-clover-configurator/ ) iMessageDebug ( http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/278-imessage-debug/ ) 1 Step You need to mount you EFI partition, to do so, type following command in terminal (Applications>Utilities>Terminal) diskutil list The output should look like this: Look for your System HardDrive or SSD (in my case HackintoshSSD 10) and copy your EFI partition IDENTIFIER (in my case disk1s1) Now type following command: diskutil mount YOUR_IDENTIFIER in my case this would be: diskutil mount disk1s1 Now you should see EFI Drive in Finder. 2 Step Open the Clover Configurator Application, you should see following screen: Select following config file: EFI > EFI > CLOVER > config.plist (Highlighted in blue). Now move to the SMBIOS Section (left menu). Click on the magic wand icon and select appropriate bios for your system. If you are not sure which one, check your About this Mac>System Reports and check your Model Identifier (in this example iMac (13,2) ). Click several times on the little shake buttons to generate a Unique Serial for you Hackintosh. (Note: This is only an example, don’t use the serials shown in the image!) Now you need to check, if your Serial is a generic one and not from a real mac. To do this: go to https://selfsolve.apple.com and enter you generated serial. If you don’t get an error Message, just randomise the serial again with the 2 little shake buttons. Repeat this until you get an error message on the site. Click on “OK” to save you SMBIOS. 3 Step You should now have a screen similar to this one. Now you need to populate those 2 RED indicated fields. Open again Terminal and enter: uuidgen This will output something like this: C5FAA18D-AA58-44E4-ABBF-C31885429CD7 Repeat this 3-4 times to be sure to get an unique one. Copy it and paste it into SmUUID. The second file that needs to be populated, is the board ID. For this, just copy your Serial and Enter some random letters and numbers, that you get a length of 17 digits! In my example this would be: C02LHIA7DNMP7E8G4 4 Step Go to the RT Variables Section, enter the MLB (BoardSerialNumber) & ROM value from a real mac and click Calculate. Do not use values found on the Internet! Only use values from your own mac and never ever share them! To learn more about MLB check out this Thread by holyfield. To find those Values on a real mac, simply run iMessage Debug or for older macs (OS X Lion / Snow Leopard) check out here (by Fusion71au). The real mac does not need the be the same model as your SmBios, you can use the ROM/MLB form a MacBookPro with MacPro SmBios on you hack. You can also still use both Macs on the same times on iMessage. Go System Parameters Section on Clover Configurator and make sure, that those are empty! Now save the file (cmd + s). Disconnect your computer form Internet and Reboot. Do this several times and always check with iMessageDebug (double click on the file), that all IDs are set and stay the same. If it is so, you can reconnect to your network. If not, retry steps 1-4. You will now be prompted to re-login to iCloud and iMessage. Normally you should not get any error or code from iMessage if you use a valid ROM/MLB combination. If you get an Code and you are asked to call apple, you are using some invalid ID combination, usually related by ROM/MLB. I would not recommend you to call Apple, as you are not using a mac, even if some other tutorials tell you that. Enjoy fully functional iMessage! Hope it helped
  25. Hi all, I have an assembled PC with the following specs: CPU: Core i5-2500k Motherboard: Asus P8H61-MLe Graphics: HD3000 Ethernet: Realtek I have custom DSDT and SSDT installed. Previously I had the Mavericks installed on my PC using Niresh distro. Recenltly I moved to Yosemite 10.10 using clover installation method in UEFI mode. The installation went smoothly. The system is also fully usable. I had Rehabman fakesmc, Mieze RTL8111, Voodoo PS2 controller and Realtek ALC kexts installed. Injected HD300 using DSDT. These are the only modifications I have done to vanilla system. Native CPU Power mangement is enabled. Currently I am facing two problems which are 1. System randomly freezes. Only I will be able to move the mouse, rest of the system hangs. (One thing I noted, if I start playing songs, even after GUI hangs, songs will continue to run) Initially I thought the problem is due to the Safari and moved to firefox. But I am still getting freezes. Updated to 10.10.1. Still the problem persists. This is completely annoying. 2. Screen glitches. Previously in mavericks, I have not seen glitches even a single time. So I believe HD3000 is fully supported and there wll be some way to fix it. Anyone else facing this problems ??? Please share some comments or ideas to rectify this problems. Thanks in advance. Mari
