Thanks. :)


Will try to improve this guide. I'm now using the latest chameleon trunk (Chameleon Wizard) seems to fix some things.

Also I removed the monitoring tools. No changes on kexts/dsdt for the moment, because that seems to work fine. :)


I hope to here more reports from users if there sleep is working correctly.

works fine for me, even with p67 chipset.


my config:


ASUS P8P67-M PRO B3 (everything seems to work, including audio and ethernet // P67(!) )


Sapphire AMD RADEON HD6870 VAPOR-X (works OOB)

Intel Core i5 2310

OCZ Vertex 2 60 GB - Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3

WD Caviar Blue 1TB - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

LG BH10LS30 Bluray-Drive


all of the above do work.


last thing i have to fix is the pci-e wlan card (ASUS,PCE-N13).

You should try to create a new DSDT file, see the link to the guide in the first post.

After patching, change the _PTS values again.


What GPU do you have? (You could also send me a PM instead)

hey beta992,

yea, i'm ok :D


#1 - my network card driver is 32 bit only and there were no 64 bit kext´s available, so i just bought a D-Link DWA-556 which is recognized as an airport card. works great!

#2 - i bought a magic trackpad in combination with a speed link vias nano bt stick, works OOB!

#3 - i use chimera 1.8 (latest), do you recommend chameleon?

#4 - bought 8 GB RAM Corsair XMS3 -1333MHz, special offer ,32,99 euro (germany:D) so now i use 16 GB RAM Corsair XMS3-1333 MHz

#5 - solved UI probs. i use a cyborg rat 7 which is really great. i reinstalled the (latest) driver 5 times for sure, but all this didn´t help. then i downloaded an alternative (USBOverdrive) driver, installed it, reboot, works.


so now i am done with building my hackintosh :D big thanks, screenshot´s will follow..

Nice.. hope we see some screens soon. :)

Magic trackpad better than a Apple mouse?


I use Chameleon trunk and it is working well here. :)


Do you tried the new BIOS?

hey beta992,


the magic trackpad is, umm... magic:D


well, my board uses a p67 chipset ---> latest driver 1004. works just fine.

i changed the design of my bootmanager from tonymac´s theme to a boot camp theme... looks more "clear" .

screens will follow.

hi beta922


stumbled across this forum because looking for P8H67-M-PRO (B3) DSDT file, tried yours above and the result is my lion 10.7.3 is losing the support for PS2 Keyboard and unable to shutdown because of asmedia USB3.0 is active (through PXHCD.kext).


before applied your DSDT, PS2 keyboard was working and shutdown work just with a problem that the PC will power on again after 2-3 secs off, so I thought by using your DSDT, will solve the problem.


any thought about this ?, do you have your onboard USB3.0 activated ?


my system is :


P8H67-M Pro (B3)



8Gb Memory

On board Graphics

chameleon boot



Thank you

      More Specs: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-DELUXE/specifications/
      El Capitan 10.11.6 -> Big Sur 11 - Windows 10
      What is working:
      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound (all ports) USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) ASUS HyperKit and M.2 with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB Hardware decoding/encoding on both HD 530 and RX 5700 (HD 530 up to HEVC, RX 5700 at the time of writing VP9) iGPU only (with QuickSync) is used in the default config.plist To use dGPU for hw decode/encode and also use Intel QuickSync you need to start with "config_headless.plist" This will use iMac17,2 SMBIOS and shikigva=80 To use dGPU only boot with "config_amd.plist" also disable iGPU completely in BIOS. This will use iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS without iGPU System Integrity Protection is Enabled by default. If you need to boot with SIP disabled you may use "config_debug.plist" or disable it manually in Clover settings. If you want Enabled SIP but with allowing unsigned kexts you may boot with "CsrActiveConfig = 0x01"  
      What is not working:
      Not tested:
      Thunderbolt (no equipment)  
      BIOS Settings:
      Boot\CSM (Compatibility Support Module): Launch CSM: Disabled Boot\Secure Boot: OS type: Other OS Secure Boot State: Disabled Advanced\System agent (sa) Configuration: VT-d: Enabled Graphics Configuration: (This is for HD 530 in headless) Primary Display: Auto (to use dGPU only this must be PEG) iGPU Multi-monitor: Enabled (to use dGPU only this must be Disabled) RC6(Render Standby): Enabled (to use dGPU only this must be Disabled) DVMT Pre-Allocated: 128M Advanced\PCH Storage Configuration: SATA Mode Selection: AHCI HyperKit: Enable (if you have NVMe SSD with ASUS HyperKit) Advanced\CPU Configuration: Intel Virtualization Technology: Enabled CPU- Power Management Control: CPU- C-States: Enabled Intel SpeedShift: Enabled  
      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5126): Click here -> Z170-DELUXE_Clover_v5126.zip (Tested: El Capitan 10.11.6 -> macOS Big Sur 11.0.1)  
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia, gibMacOS - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager, gibMacOS) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:


      El Capitan 10.11.6
      Sierra 10.12.6
      High Sierra 10.13.6
      Mojave 10.14.6
      Catalina 10.15.7
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      According to @albertoacj's comment Sidecar is only working in headless iGPU mode when using an AMD GPU, keep that in mind No need to change anything inside Clover from El Capitan to Big Sur For macOS Mojave and older you might need the full AirPortBrcmFixup.kext for full WiFi support

      So I've been trying to update to Big Sur from Catalina but I get stuck at the +++ message at the beginning. I made sure I have all my kexts and drivers updated. Updating to Clover revision 5126 would only get me kernel panics. Am I doing something wrong? Any response would be greatly appreciated. EFI

      I tried to patch the DSDT (battery) for my thinkpad L380, but to no avail. Could anyone help me on this?
      Here are my hardware and software:
      Bootloader: opencore 0.5.9 (DSDT and EFI in the attached file, SMBIOS removed) Hardware:thinkpad L380 (detail info: https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_L380/ThinkPad_L380_Spec.PDF) CPU: I5-8250U GPU: UHD 620 SSD: 970 Evo plus Wifi card: native broadcom card (wifi worked without kext, bluetooth doesn't work due to not properly patch USB) OS: MacOS Catalina 10.15.7  
      Thank you and good day.
