  1. Have removed the kernel patch, and am trying clover. See this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/299786-advice-sought—black-screen-after-boot/#entry2044867 Now I KP at startup. "Unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI"" I haven’t installed anything yet; I’m just trying to boot into the USB installation drive. To get it to boot I had to change mach_kernel using this perl patch discussed here: If I set GraphicsEnabler=No (default), I simply get a black screen after I see it do its normal verbose boot (the screen goes black right after [iOBluetoothHCIController]. If I set GraphicsEnabler=Yes, then it simply hangs on the same [iOBluetoothHCIController]. Has anyone run into this problem? I'd really appreciate some sort of solution. If no one has a solution, then any possible ways I could troubleshoot this would also be appreciated. A concise summary below: Issue: Black screen after boot. I can see everything on the boot screen, but nothing after. Hardware: EVGA Classified Z97 2x EVGA reference 780Ti i7-4790K Things I have tried: GraphicsEnabler=No (black screen remains) GraphicsEnabler=Yes (Hangs on [iOBluetoothHCIController]) PCIRootUID=0,1 DSDT=no -f, -F, -x
  2. Hey guys, I have had a z97 pro wifi ac build for about a year now, and it works great, except I cannot get the onboard bluetooth to work. It shows up in my system profiler under USB as "BCM20702A0". When I use a kext named "asusBCM20702A0Bluetooth.kext", the usb gets recognized, but it doesnt pair with my devices (it sees them, but then it says pairing failed). I already deleted the bluetooth plist and restarted. I am on clover, and on yosemite 10.10.5. I have also tried other kexts (bcrmpatchram) but that one doesnt do anything. Does anyone have a z97 on yosemite 10.10.5 with working onboard bluetooth? thanks
  3. 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.
  4. Upgrading my build from mavericks --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/300293-report-asus-z97i-plus-gtx-770-mavericks-1094/ With the following components : Asus Z97i-Plus Motherboard Intel Core i5-4690 Asus GTX 770 DirectCU II Corsair 8GB RAM Install configuration : Using Apple Store installer Clover bootloader (v2k r3050) check the EFI.zip file below VoodooHDA (VoodooHDA_V286_MAV.pkg found in on sourceforge) MacPro 5,1 smbios what works : The Wi-Fi card + Bluetooth + Ethernet GTX 770 ( disable the intelHD on the bios ) Sound ( using VoodooHDA, or patch AppleHDA with toleda's script fro ALC892 + intel series9 patch ) Native Power Management, generate using clover Sleep Bugs and notes : After wake from sleep, the sound stop working. Reloading the sound kext works most of the time ---> check this : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/303424-report-asus-z97i-plus-gtx-770-yosemite-1010/?do=findComment&comment=2095842 The AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext and IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext is edited acoording to my need. The AGPM is for Direct CUII GTX770 and the IOPlatformPluginFamily is edited for the i5-4690 + MacPro smbios. So might not work on your system. See update details below. I use patched AppleHDA for the sound. Still have the same sleep bug. I think it's better than voodoo Update 27 Dec 2014 : replace OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi with OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi to avoid boot error when using nvidia web driver and/or cuda driver (cuda currently worked with the default driver but not with nvidia web driver) update with the latest FakeSMC.kext remove EmuVariableUefi-64.efi and use "install RC scripts on target volume" when installing/upgrade clover so the bootloader using the native NVRAM Update 9 February 2015 : Update to 10.10.2 Re-patch AppleHDA kext Change SMBIOS to MacPro6,1, nothing wrong with MacPro5,1 Generate new SSDT using Piker-Alpha's script from here --> https://github.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh. I use 3 SSDT files (SSDT.aml, SSDT-1.aml and SSDT-2.aml) Revert back to the original AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext Revert back to the original IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext an then run Piker-Alpha's script from here --> https://github.com/Piker-Alpha/freqVectorsEdit.sh Update 14 March 2015 Turn out the MacPro6,1 make my sleep not working, so back to MacPro5,1 Update the nVidia web driver to 343,02.02f02, I don't remember updating my CUDA Drive but my cuda driver version is 6.5.46 EFI-CLOVERr3079-14-March-2015.zip
  5. Update (4/25/16): With the guidance of Slice, I was able to reset the flags on my EFI(disk0s1) partition. Now Clover installer/updater correctly mounts and updates the bootloader in the EFI partition. 1. I dowloaded the most current gparted (v2016) and there is now a new flag called ESP in addition to the boot flag on the disk0s1 EFI partition. 2. Apparently, the older gparted (v2009-2010) I was using wasn't showing me all the flags on the partition. 3. I double checked the technical specs for OSX EFI partitions and there is supposed to be those two flags (boot and ESP) when using gparted to view the drive. 4. I turned both flags off and then rewrote them both back by turning them back on within gparted for the EFI partition (disk0s1). That seemed to do the trick. There may have been some data corruption on the boot sector area. 5. The most current version of clover installer/updater v3438 was able to now mount my EFI partition and update the bootloader correctly. The other possibility is that there was a slight change to the clover installer that resolved my drive mounting issue within the clover installer package. Either way, I am relieved.--------------------- I have been having issues with Clover (most current and slightly older versions) not wanting to install to my hidden EFI partition on my SSD OSX installation drive (disk0s1). I didn't have this issue when i was running Yosemite. Clover updated as it should to my hidden EFI partition and I used UEFI boot without problem. I decided to update my system to El Capitan doing a clean install. I wiped my SSD using Disk Utility. I first errased the drive, reformatted to a new partition (GUID HFS) and created my UEFI USB El Capitan loader. I installed El Capitan to the SSD without issue. After installation, both the EFI and the OSX partition where created properly along with the recovery partition. I rebooted using the UEFI USB and configured OSX after the welcome screen. I then tried to run the latest version of Clover for the UEFI installation and it failed as it couldn't open the EFI hidden partition and install the kexts and Clover. It basically failed to mount the EFI partition and install to the EFI partition. I even mounted the EFI partition on disk0s1 where my OSX install was on my SSD and it didnt create any files or folders in the partition. I did create an EFI folder with everything in my root OSX partition instead (very odd). I double and triple checked that i selected UEFI as I always do and that the drive was indeed the OSX SSD installation drive. I manually mounted disk0s1 EFI partition and it had nothing from clover in it. I wiped the EFI partition and tried again without success. I reloaded my GA-Z97MX Gaming5 firmware v6 again and it still failed to load clover into the EFI partition. It did create a EFI folder in my root directory for OSX with all the correct files but i couldn't boot to it using UEFI (YES- i was selecting UEFI from the menu, i have done this successfully on Mavericks and Yosemite many times before) If I move the folder and files from the root EFI folder to the EFI partition, I can boot OSX using UEFI I used gparted to reformat the SSD and try to do another fresh install of OSX again thinking that Disk Utility didn't get rid of all the old bootloader info. Clover couldn't mount the hidden EFI partition on disk0s1. I could do it manually though. I manually mounted the EFI boot partition for my SSD and moved all the clover/mulitbeast files over there. I was able to again boot UEFI SSD El Capitan. When I try to update clover, it doesn't open the hidden EFI partition or update the files in it. It does, however, create an EFi folder in my OSX root with the new Clover bootloader files there. ------------------------------------------------ Original post: Background facts: I have done this successfully many times with both Mavericks and Yosemite in the past using the Clover UEFI booloader 1. I clicked uefi 2. The hidden EFI partition exists on my SSD (disk0s1) OSX install 3. I tried reformatting the drive using gparted and Disk Utility as was outlined in the guides 4. I tried erasing just the EFI partition and changing the file structure 5. I reloaded my GA-Z97MX Gaming5 v6 firmware 6. I did check off the box for loading Clover as uefi 7. I told Clover to install into the ssd OS X drive (I doubled and triple checked this) 8. I booted everything using Uefi from both my F12 option and BIOS option - I don't Legacy boot 9. I tried the most recent versions of Clover. I also tried an older version of Clover for curiosity. ---------------------- Nothing I do can seem to get Clover to load to the hidden EFI partition on my SSD OSX install (disk0s1) Does anyone have an idea what I need to fix to get Clover to recognize, mount, open, and install to my EFI partition on my SSD (disk0s1)?
  6. Hello, Really appreciate your big, helpful community.. and the most can be found by searching and reading, but this problem is unsolvable for me. Used hardware Motherboard: GA-Z97X-UD5H with latest BIOS F9 CPU: Intel Core i7 4790 (Haswell Refresh, integrated Intel HD 4600) Display: LG Display connected via HDMI (if that is important) Software OS X 10.9.3 Ozmosis 820M Bios with FakeSMC v6.9.1315 I tried to patch my DSDT, but with it patched, boot stalls at waitForSystemMapper Backtrace 0xffffff80006b9ae9 0xffffff80006b95cd 0xffffff7f81af348c 0xffffff7f81af0dbd 0xffffff800069522f 0xffffff8000694def 0xffffff80006909c9 Kernel Extensions in backtrace: org.netkas.driver.FakeSMC(1315.0)[3C58E8E3-C1BA-320A-8820-ED990E3BB6E4]@0xffffff7f81aee000->0xffffff7f81b06fff dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily(1.4)[045D5D6F-AD1E-36DB-A249-A346E2B48E54]@0xffffff7f8108b000 IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87 That message also appears on normal Boots (without patched DSDT), but the system works normal then.

  7. Hello, these are 3 issues ive had on my 4790k clover build, since day one, and through many OSs, and I have never found a solution to any of them. Here are the issues: 1) My Ram has always shown as under-clocked. I have 1866 speed Ram, but it has ALWAYS shown as 1777 speed in the Mac install (ive been through yosemite, cap, and now sierra, have updated clover every now and then etc, same issue). The bios and the windows install both see correct speed. 2) Bios sees the Mac install as several duplicated devices (ie, if I go to bios to choose boot device, or i press f8 on boot for boot menu, it shows "mac os 256gb ssd etc" like 10 times in the list. Eventually, the list grows to a point where it will no longer boot until I clear CMOS and get it back down to being listed once, about every other month. 3) Shutdown speed has always been extremely slow. I have an SSD, and even when the install is clean and new, this issue exists. It takes about 45 seconds or more to shutdown (bootup is still fast, about 10 seconds). This is very annoying, it should take about 3 seconds to shutdown. Please help me with these, guys. Thanks My hardware is: 4790k CPU, Asus z97 Pro Wifi AC mobo, 16gb of 1866 ram, samsung SSD, 980ti, using clover on uefi
  8. Team, This will be my 2nd Hackintosh project and I hope (no I'm sure!) I'll get help from masters/gurus, over here. I bought myself the following PC with the objective to get a fully working dual boot (Mavericks + Windows 8.1) machine. Asus Z97 Deluxe Intel Core i7 4770K Asus Geforce GTX 760 Direct CU II OC Corsair Vengence 2x8Go Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256Go This topic will hopefully become a guide for people with similar hardware but I'm actually starting from scratch here and already have some issues. First thing first: From the different forums I read before using my credit card, all of those seem compatible to build my Hackintosh except for the Z97 board for which I found no clear answer on that aspect, I hope I did not make a mistake. I created my Mavericks 10.9.4 USB installer from a VMWare using this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298027-guide-aio-guides-for-hackintosh/?p=2019599 Unfortunately, and despite having configured my BIOS Security options properly, I'm getting a kernel panic after launching the install from Clover... Tried all possible bootflag combinations, nothing works... Can someone please help?
  9. I just finished my new mini-ITX build this week here are the main components : Asus Z97i-Plus Motherboard Intel Core i5-4690 Asus GTX 770 DirectCU II Corsair 8GB RAM Install configuration : Using Apple Store installer Clover bootloader (v2k r2795) check file below VoodooHDA (VoodooHDA_V286_MAV.pkg found in on sourceforge) iMac 14,2 smbios what works : The Wi-Fi card + Bluetooth + Ethernet GTX 770 (this is just works, I think you need disable the intelHD on the bios ) Sound (using VoodooHDA) Native Power Management, generate using clover Sleep (I think it works) This is the best hackintosh build that I made so far I hope this information useful for some peoples clover-EFI-folder.zip
  10. MSI z97 970 gtx intel 4790 disabled vt-d, and I try boot flags -x, -v. graphicsenabler=yes, pciroot... and reboot & reboot. Apple logo appears and system restart. And I tried without 970gtx and nothing What should I do?
  11. CPU: i7-4790K Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 SSD: SanDisk 256 GB Memory: 16 GB (2 x 8) F3-1600C9-8GXM GSkill Memory GPU: Gigabyte AMD R9 R280x 3GB PSU: Corsair AX1200i Case: Fractal Define R4 Yosemite 10.10.3 Clover 3202 For some reason, when I plug in my iPhone 5s, after a couple of seconds, my system fans rev up and the whole computer shuts off. It doesn't matter which port or cable I use. USB 2 and USB 3 are the same. I don't get any errors in the system.log accept a long-standing message that my computer was improperly shut off. The appears even if I successfully restart or shut down my system (The report says something about the AppleHDA kext). I'm at my wits end with this. When I boot into Windows 7 and plug the phone in, it works fine so I don't think it is a hardware issue. Can someone suggest some troubleshooting steps I can try? I'm not running any overclocking profile and my Intel graphics is disabled in BIOS.
  12. Hello. I have a ASROCK Z97 pro4 motherboard with a i5-4690K. As of software, it runs Clover and OS X Yosemite. I configured everything to work fine but I have hooked up a PHILIPS monitor to the HDMI port and a Dell monitor to the DVI. The problems come when the HDMI (philips) monitor is hooked up. When I put the hackintosh to sleep and then try to wake it, it reboots. (crashes) Another thing is (probably related) that when the system is running, and the HDMI monitor is reconnected to the board, the monitor gives an error and won't show picture ("Cannot display this video mode"). Please help.
  13. Hi, I thought it would be nice that I would be the first here to give my experience with getting Mojave running and mostly working on my system. My specifications are as follows: iMac 14,2 GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H / Intel Core i7-4770k @ 4.4GHz / 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 @ 1600MHz MSI AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB OC 250GB SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND SSD / 120GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD 1TB 5.4K HDD I used the config that @MaLd0n helped me with. Seriously, he is a legend. HERE is my Clover Config including everything I use for 10.13 High Sierra and 10.14 Mojave. Installation Procedure: Create bootable USB media with createinstallmedia - sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"Insert Volume Name here" ***** Remove quotation marks!!! **"--Applicationpath" is now depreciated and should not be used when making a 10.14 Mojave USB. I do not know if this will change in upcoming releases. ** ConvertToAPFS is now depreciated and no longer works when installing 10.14 Mojave beta 1. Using the command "--converttoapfs NO" will not work if you use it with "createinstallmedia". Editing "minstallconfig.xml" within the "macOS Install Data" folder on the target partition chosen during installation to change "ConvertToAPFS" from "TRUE" to "FALSE" would also not disable APFS conversion. Installation ran through well, but it did restart just after installation began which seemed to have been caused by a crash, but it seemed like it was normal as this happened twice as I tried installing Mojave earlier and the same thing happened. Rebooting again into the installation on the target drive that was selected before described as "macOS Install" and named "macOS 10.14" resumed installation. Everything from then on was easy and smooth. I set-up my iCloud and things as such and was brought to the desktop of macOS 10.14 Mojave! What does work: Graphics (Acceleration/Metal) // 4K video dropped 0 frames // Picture-in-Picture Mouse and Keyboard USB 3.0 - Full 5 GBP/s - Only ports above HDMI Port and front I/O USB 3.0 under both Intel and Killer Ethernet ports function with USB 2.0 devices. Ethernet (only Intel NIC so far) Both NIC's work, Intel I217-V and Killer E2200 iMessage Sleep and Wake Shutdown Restart Update #1: Temporary Fix: ***I have gotten audio to work after browsing Reddit, I stumbled across this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/8orn7w/mojave_files_needed/e05kkj9/ Update #2: I have just found a kext for the on-board Killer E2200 NIC after searching with device and vendor ID's on this forum. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/313-atherose2200ethernet/ Update #3: Audio is now fully operational with new version 1.2.8 of AppleALC, from here: What does NOT work: USB 3 under Intel I217-V NIC and Killer E2200 NIC Ethernet Ports // Only function with USB 2.0 devices. Audio Temporary fix in Update #1 above Fixed in Update #3 Killer E2200 NIC Fixed in Update #2 above This is the information I have been able to gather thus far whilst using Mojave. I hope this helps someone in getting Mojave running on their system. Regards, Mohamed CLOVER_moman2000 No SN.zip
  14. Hi, I manage to get El Capitan installed, but am unable to boot from SSD and have to boot from usb everytime. Furthermore, I have to disable nvidia by using 'nv_disable=1' as I have a gtx 970. This leaves me in a pretty bad situation where I am unable to boot from my ssd or use my 970. Specs: i7 4790 (non-k) Asrock z97 extreme6, 16 gb ram, GTX 970 128gb ssd. All other drives removed for this.
