Buongiorno a tutti,
Dopo molti sforzi sono riuscito ad assemblarmi questo computer, avrei bisogno di sapere quale sono le impostazioni da utilizzare prima di iniziare e quale versione di mac os mi consigliate. Nota importante avrei bisogno di sapere se la scheda di rete wireless è funzionante in macos.
AsRock H170m pro4s

Grazie in anticipo per l'aiuto
Hey guys the reason why I'm making this post is because I didn't think I was going to be able to make a new version of Hackintosh in my old computer. It turned out that I actually could and it works flawlessly!
I will tell you what I've made so if you have similar components you can take my guide so you can install it as well.
Mobo: H61M-P31 (G3)
Processor: i3 3220
GPU: GTX 1070 (EVGA SC)
Memory: 8 GB (2x4 1333 MHz)
Storage: 2x SEAGATE 500 GB (Windows 10 installed on the 1 HD, Mac OS X in the 2)
Display: SAMSUNG 23PL S23C550
Where did I start?
I started by downloading the Mac OS Sierra DMG (Niresh's version) and then transferred to a USB (8 GB) in Windows using Transmac app. It's pretty simple, there are tutorials available on the net how to do it.
After you've transferred the DMG to your FLASH USB you will have to go to your BIOS and change SATA IDE to SATA AHCI mode. Also, you'll have to change the HDDs order for booting. If you want to make a dual boot with your windows system you'll have to let the Mac OS X HDD boot first so you can access your Windows system in Clover bootloader. Pretty simple, see more of the "how to" here (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/303960-success-yosemite-hackintosh-on-msi-h61m-p31w8/)
Boot from USB
After choosing your USB by pressing F11, there's no need to type anything ("darts=0 -v" is inserted by default on the boot loader) after you wait the loading if everything goes well you'll be able to see the setup Mac OS X screen.
No mystery here just do what you've learnt and format the HD who is going to host Mac OS X Sierra (that can simply be found on youtube). After you have done all the HD stuff it's time to move on with the insulation. When you finally reach the part where you need to choose your HDD to install Mac OS on, go to Customize in the left bottom corner. In Customize you'll have to change the bootloader from "Chameleon" to "Clover", for some reason when I tried to install with chameleon on it didn't proceed with the installation and I got several errors. That's very important to keep going with the installation process.
If everything gone well you'll now be in the Desktop of your OS. Wait about 10 minutes so the system can configure and make all the changes. After that, the things you'll need to configure are your GPU and the Audio (if your audio for some reason have a static sound or an annoying noise). Also, you'll need to UPDATE your system to the version 10.12.6 so you can install the driver. No mystery here, just go to Appstore and update it and boot your system again (no flag needed).
GTX 1070 Driver (Nvidia Web Driver)
in order to get your GTX 1070 working (works for all pascals and only) you'll need to install (378.05.05.25f01) version which worked for me. You can find it on this link: (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312525-nvidia-web-driver-updates-for-macos-sierra-update-07212017/)
After you install your web driver you'll have to activate it on your bootloader.
Nvidia Web Driver Activation
After restarting your computer once you've installed the driver you'll need to go on Clover Configurator (which can be found by searching in Spotlight). After that, follow these steps:
1 > You'll get a message that Clover didn't find the config.plist and will ask you to mount an EFI Partition. Click on: Mount EFI Partition
2 > You'll see the EFI Partition in the bottom, then click on "Mount Partition" after that you'll click on "Open Partition"
3 > Go to: EFI > CLOVER > CONFIG.PLIST > Open with TextEdit
4 > Scroll down to the last lines and replace:
<dict> <key>InjectKexts</key> <string>YES</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> </dict> </dict> </plist> 5 > Close the TextEdit and save your changes.
- After that reboot your system, you'll probably get your Pascal GPU working by now.
Audio FIX / Microphone Fix / Siri Fix
In order to get your microphone working/siri. You'll need to download the file: "VoodooHDA.Kext" and then follow these steps: VoodooHDA.kext.zip
1 - > Open Kext Wizard > click on "Installation" tab > drag and drop the file you've just downloaded and drop it in the middle of the app screen > click on Install.
After that, reboot your system and you'll probably get everything working by now just as I do
Hello, I've got a Fujitsu Lifebook A555 with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Intel i3 5th Generation processor (2.00 GHz), and Intel HD Graphics 5500.
I've heard that Intel 5500 needs the DMVT to be changed, but I also heard that I could risk bricking my laptop.
Will anyone please write out a guide for me to install El Capitan with Wifi and Sound working on this laptop?
I would really appreciate it. I didn't understand the Broadwell part of Rehabman's new users guide. I'm not saying you guys do all the hard work and let me relax, I just want a guide specifically for my laptop (just to be safe) if you could manage writing it. (Because I don't want to end up bricking it)
Thanks a lot
I've got an El Capitan usb installer created using Createinstallmedia on OS X (friend's macbook) and Clover.
No hokus pokus - No magic
I am basically making this more current and simplifying it for people with HP Z800 wanting to run Sierra. With a bit more detail on the BIOS settings
All credit really goes to: chatdeau, Rockey12 and ZoroZZ for helping out and creating the first topic on the HP Z series found here
I am not sure who to credit for the kexts but a big THANK YOU to whoever you are!
The HP Z series is very powerful and affordable computers which I simply think is a brilliant Hackintosh solution.
MY HW Specification :
HP Z800 with BIOS version : 3.60
CPU: x2 6-core X5690
RAM: 32 GB
GFX: ATI HD5870
SSD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB
What you need.
- A HP Z800/600 (obviously)
- A working computer running Mac OS X
- A 8gb or higher USB 2.0 key
- Mac OS X Sierra app
- Latest CLOVER
- The Attached Kexts
Step one – BIOS Update
Update your BIOS to the latest (currently it is 3.60 Rev.A 14 Apr 2016)
The easiest way is to run the flash tool on a Windows installation.
Step two – BIOS settings
Setup the BIOS settings with the following settings. Please keep in mind that there might be option you can turn on or off depending on your need but this is just what worked for me.

Step tree – Create the USB
Download the Mac OS Sierra installer app from the Appstore on a working computer running Mac
Run Disk Utility and format the USB key as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID Partition Map.
I just named the USB Key Untitled as standard
Then open terminal and run this command to create the USB key
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app Please note that this part of the command “/Volumes/Untitled” is the path to the USB key and if you have named it anything else than “Untitled” you will have to edit it with the name of your USB key.
Once the command is done you have to install Clover which can be downloaded here
Run the clover pkg and remember to “Change Install Location” to your usb.
Then choose costumize and choose the following:
- Install boot0af in MBR
- CloverEFI 64-bits SATA
Once Clover is installed you will need to add the following Kexts (attached below) to the /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12 folder on your USB Key.
Step four – Boot to Installation
Insert the USB key and start the computer. At the HP screen choose F9 to choose boot option. Then select USB drive
When you are at the CLOVER screen you can choose options and in the boot arguments you should write use the –v bootflag to be able to see what is going on in case there is any errors.
In my case I am using a ATI 5870 GPU and I don’t need to do anything as the ATI 5xxx series is supported but Mac OS X by default.
If you have an Nvidia card you need to add the nv_disable=1 boot argument to avoid a black screen.
Now run the installer as you would with any Mac and at the install screen you shall rund Disk Utility and format the drive you want to use as we did previously with the USB key. Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID Partition Map.
The installer will reboot the computer and when It starts again you need to hit F9 again select the USB key but this time at the Clover screen You need to choose your newly created Hard drive.
The Installer will continue after this and boot one last time before booting in to the new system.
Please note that you need to boot from the USB and choose the hard drive each time at the Clover screen.
Step five – Make the OS bootable
Once you are running your new OS you will need to install clover to that drive like we did previously on the USB key.
Run the clover pkg and remember to “Change Install Location” to your hard drive.
Then choose costumize and choose the following:
- Install boot0af in MBR
- CloverEFI 64-bits SATA
Once Clover is installed you will need to add these following Kexts found here to the /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12 folder on you’re the OS X hard drive.
If you have an Nvidia GPU you will need to install the web driver which is found here
And use the nvda_drv=1 boot flag at the clover screen. You will need to add this to the config.plist ether manually or with clover configurator to avoid typing it in all the time.
Enjoy your new powerful hackintosh.
