I got that last error from using a USB HUB that didn't have drivers at the boot stage. I unplugged the hub and everything was fine. I am able to use the HUB after the OS loads. I need to check IOReg to see which kext I should add to the preboot cache. I don't know at this point what will work and as usual your situation may be different to mine.

well the USBS I have plugged in are my printer, mouse, keyboard, and phone cord.

 

I'm not understanding this, it seems, (If I'm seeing this right) that since I copied the cd contents, and changed the strings to run off HD instead of RD that it should be identical, but why can it not load from the HDD? I even tried patching chameleon over this, and exact same thing

Here is the plist I have placed in the preboot image: try the usb fix command at the prompt. Man, I hate to think I dug another hole for you on this.

lol it's okay, even when I try the usbbusfix it is the same......I even made a dsdt.aml and moved the smbios over and changed from RD, to HD and still no dice. just gets the still waiting, and it doesn't freeze for like 10 mins, it just keeps giving a different still waiting for root.......then can't enumerate.....

 

not my only problem so no biggie, can't get graphics card to register, and speakers have a nasty constant static.

 

And can't update past 10.6.4 without errors...

OK, if you want to do the way you were doing before (namely, running native), booting w/out the ModCD is not a problem. Reinstall, move the kernel over, and see what happens.

 

The problem with VB is as far as I know there is no QE/CI support, severely limiting functionality.

You have to be like Thomas Edison with this project; brute force experimentation seems the only way to getting a Hackintosh to work right.

 

I am still in a state of denial when it comes to my graphics board. Keep plugging away and things should come together for you.

 

I managed to jump from 10.6.2 straight up to 10.6.8 although my drive languished in limbo for a while.

 

I'll sign off now and let some pros help you with this. Good luck.

can you explain that again pookymac, for some reason I'm drawing a blank on what you just said.

Virtualbox does not present your graphics card; in fact, it presents a custom, very simple VGA adapter. Since there are no guest additions for OS X you will not get full graphics support in VB.

 

Reinstall natively with the ModCD, boot with the ModCD/modbin_kernel combo, drag the modbin_kernel from Preboot on the ModCD to the root of your hard drive, change the kernel choice in com.apple.boot.plist, and see what happens. If you can't boot right post a pic of what goes wrong.

that's what I did, I haven't been using VM since I got it to install natively. I also did drag modbin_kernel to the root, changed the kernel in com.apple.boot.plist. (saved it and made sure it saved, then I get the last pic I posted. That's with booting off HDD without mod CD. With modcd I can get it to boot.

 

Did I miss something?

Did your pre boot image look like this when you tried to install off the HDD?

 

post-966444-0-30075800-1332202193_thumb.jpg

 

I think I left out the step where you place your DSDT file and SMBIOS into the pre boot image. The one off of the disk won't have a DSDT and it comes with a generic SMBIOS. Also did you choose to boot from USB as a first priority in your machine BIOS?

 

Try MKextTool.app to rebuild your cahe as well.

it had everything but the dsdt.aml. I made one of those with Dsdt patcher gui and stuck it in there as well, also changed the rd on the smbios, the dsdt, and the kernel to hd

 

No first boot priority is my mac hdd, after CDROM

 

everything in the /extra folder on my mac hdd:

 

Extensions (folder)

Themes (folder)

dsdt.aml

Extensions.bak

legacy_kernel

mach_kernel

modbin_kernel

org.chameleon.boot.plist (was changed from the com.apple.boot.plist)

postboot.img

Try setting your SATA drive to master if it isn't already.

and this is what happens.......post-966952-0-06422400-1332207164_thumb.jpgbut if while here, I put the modcd in, reboot, wait for it, type: rd(0,0)/extra/modbin_kernel -v -f it boots. If I don't -f even with permissions fixed and even extensions.mkext deleted it won't boot.

 

To setting sata as master:

 

Don't have that option. I can pick the HDD boot order, CD boot order and main boot order. Boot order is: cdrom, samsung HDD (mac),Disabled,Disabled.

Alright got the sound and the video fixed(kinda)..

 

For audio I looked at my hardware and it's azalia, so I reinstalled the Apple Azalia audio instead of the voodoohda and no static audio seems to work.

 

Video a little more complicated:

Downloaded the lion framebuffer folder

Had to do all this manually in terminal:

took the ati5000controller.kext and edited the info.plist and added my hardware ID. moved that to /S/L/E and gave permissions,

moved the ATIFramebuffer.kext and ATISupport.kext from the lion framebuffer folder to /S/L/E and gave permissions

deleted the extensions kextcache

rebooted with -f

and now it shows ati 5000 series and I have my 1920x1080 resolution.

Did you set your SATA to AHCI? If you can't set it to AHCI, set it to RAID mode.

 

Still Waiting for Root Device is solved by a 3rd-party driver if you can't do either of the above.

@Gringo Vermelho

 

That's not possibe with SATA drives.

 

 

Right you are. I stand corrected. My BIOS gives me multiple choices of which drive to use as the boot drive. I wasn't specific on that count.

 

PookyMacMan was, of course, correct in offering the AHCI solution.

Ok, now boot a Linux Live CD, open the Terminal, and type:

 

lspci -nn

 

and paste the output here.

 

Zoot, your interests are awesome...I work(ed) a LOT on PPC Macs, and now started working on Intel too. And I've been messing OSes up beyond all recognition for quite some time. :D I think as far as my hacks go, I am on my 38th installation (cumulative across all my builds). :D

post-966952-0-45264100-1332381289_thumb.jpg Issue on update.

 

ok well I updated to the combo 10.6.7 and I can get the kernel to load using the test7 kernel but I run back into the USB problem where I had to copy the *ATA* directory off the SL install. Doesn't work this time. Any ideas on a fix?

      Hi Guys,

      I have have an old dell insprion 3670 laying around.I recently tried to hackintosh it with bigsur.I get to the apple logo and no progress bar. When in verbose mode it gave me this error when it had a kernal panic:.com.apple.AppleIntelGFLgraphicsFramebuffer. I am guessing this has got to do with my graphics but I am a noob at hackintoshing therefore struggling to figure it out. If anyone can help I would be very greatful as I have been trying to do this for weeks.Here is my Config.plist for anyone that can help:

      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
      **********************************************************************************
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F11L, 9900k with a 5700 XT but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8600K, 8700, 8700K, 9400K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K, 9900KS (All KF Models work but use SMBios iMacPro1,1 instead)
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, RX 5500, 5500 XT, 5600, 5600 XT, 5700, 5700 XT
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
       
       
       @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install. (glasgood put the guide together for the Z390 Pro but the two boards are so alike that you can follow this guide with no problems at all using the Z390 Master)

      EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F11L or Higher to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision

      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
       
      OpenCore EFI Update v0.6.2 - 05/10/2020 (Big Sur Ready)
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.

      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0 so please use the new Config.plist instead.

    • By AudioGod
      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Pro and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware using Catalina 10.15.7
       
      CPU's
      8600K, 8700, 8700K, 9400K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K, 9900KS (All KF Models work but use SMBios iMacPro1,1 instead)
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, RX 5500, 5500 XT, 5600, 5600 XT, 5700, 5700 XT
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
       
       
       @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install.

      PLEASE NOTE - Please flash your motherboard bios to revision F12K (F12J Pro Wifi) to use my current Clover EFI. It’s a major rework of the bios and vital changes have been made to the layout and power tables. New DSDTs have been created and installed into the new EFI’s but will not work correctly with any other bios revision.
