Many thanks to @IronManJFF, ,@Cecekpawon and @TypeThree for putting the BIOS together. Took the plunge to update my live system today, having installed an MSI ITX Aero RX560 graphics card. Everything working except sound (again). I'll stick with it, so if anyone has any ideas about getting sound working, I'd be grateful.

Sound from the motherboard or from the RX560 ?

Motherboard. I use the optical s/pdif out into a DAC into a Sonos ZP90 into a modded Lepai 2020A amp. If I use the Line out (Green) directly to the amp I get a load of hiss that varies in volume as I move the BT mouse around.

Make sure VoodooHDA Injection is not disabled ...

Mine looks like this ...

Hi IronManJFF, thanks for checking. VoodooHDA is getting injected in the bdmesg output (below), which matches the HS output, and the Sound panel is essentially the same as yours. If I select the SPDIF output and then start iTunes, it immediately switches to a Line Out port. I'll order a USB to DAC device from Amazon and do what you're doing with the iTrack Solo, but cheaper!

Thank you a lot IronManJFF,

 

The 580 and 570 are also good for FCPX, and the WX9100 is a dream I can't afford :)

But I see all the boards are Standard Profile, this means I need to change the enclosure and have a bulkier box under my desk.

 

So for now I will follow your advice and go for High Sierra until I do the major change of the computer case.

Is the BIOS posted on this page good for High Sierra also?

 

Attached a photo of my sleek CPU

It's also rack mountable so I can take it with me in a flight case when I'm on tour

And it has a dock for 3x 5-1/4 HDDs without caddy

 

Thank you!

Absolutely.. update Defaults.plist first
If I select the SPDIF output and then start iTunes, it immediately switches to a Line Out port
I am seeing the same behavior in Mojave and High Sierra 10.13.6 and I think it it because the SPDIF port is defined at 44.8kHz and iTunes wants a 44.1Khz port .. so it reverts to the previously selected port .. in my case it goes to my iTrack Solo

Next problem - system reboots when brought out of sleep. I've tried the old trick of deleting the Ethernet connection and recreating it to no avail. Nothing in system log or asl files as far as I can see that relates to it.

Wake-On-LAN or wake by user activity ?

I have sleep disabled on mine because Nvidia cards are notoriously 'sensible' to wake/sleep'

 

Does it also happen if you don't overclock ?

Sense of deja vu here. I still had the SSDT-PM.aml in my EFI Load folder. Don't know how it was working with HS.

 

Thanks for taking the time to look at this not once but twice (back in June).

EDIT: I’m assuming you didn’t already have the beta, and are installing from HighSierra or lower...

hi question, where is the new bios , I have tried a few in many page and link and it not working for me

First and foremost thank you for the great help this community has put together in order to keep the QUO motherboard alive!

 

Yesterday I decided to upgrade my old OSX 10.10.5 setup to 10.13.6 by following the bits and pieces throughout this thread and I was able to complete the upgrade successfully, however I now have two problems:

 

1) In the BIOS boot options I no longer see the Linux drive that I was able to select prior to the upgrade. When I through the process of upgrading I unplugged all additional drives and only left the one with OSX 10.10 plugged in. Note that after installing High Sierra I had to follow the instructions in the following comment in order to even get my High Sierra to boot, which is located on fs3. My LVM-encrypted Linux drive is on fs7. How can I boot into my Linux drive? I do see in the SATA configuration that it is properly connected.

 

2) My wireless keyboard mapping is quite strange as it appears that the FN key is now permanently pressed. For example, after QWERTY it outputs 456* for the keys UIOP, which I normally would have to press FN to get those values. This is the same behavior for all other keys which also have FN options.

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

In the BIOS, change boot options from UEFI Only to UEFI and Legacy to get your Linux drive visible.

 

Keyboard problem sounds like a keyboard fault. I find that I can fix all keyboard faults by hitting it heavily in the middle of the keys and going and buying a new one.

I gave up and am using a different keyboard without issues :)

If it would not be I'd tell you to go elsewhere....

I am going to sound blunt but If you can't take the time to do a search or scroll up a couple of pages and you can't take the time to make a build signature then I don't see why I should take my time to help you out.

      Vorrei assemblare un nuovo hackintosh partendo dallo stretto necessario per poi aggiungere altri componenti nel tempo. Dato che la mobo penso sia fondamentale vorrei prenderne una che mi dia la possibilità di future espansioni ma che non costi troppo. Ho visto che su Amazon ci sono delle mobo come ad esempio la Asrock Z370 Taichi usate ad ottimi prezzi. Voi che ne pensate? Vale la pena o è rischioso? Nella descrizione c'è scritto "Come nuovo" o "Ottime condizioni".
      Riguardo alla compatibilità di questa scheda madre con hackintosh che mi dite? Il modulo wi-fi e bluetooth è compatibile?
      Grazie.

      Ciao a tutti.
      dopo aver installato High Sierra il pc non può avviarsi dall'SSD mostrandomi la schermata nera che dice di scegliere il boot. facendo partire il pc con l'USB inserita, da dove ho installato il tutto, mi viene mostrata schermata di scelta dove posso effettivamente fare partire osx appena installato dal ssd ma con una lentezza mostruosa!. se provo con la chiavetta scollegata stessa schermata nera con la scelta del boot. inutile aggiungere che ho cercato di cambiare l'ordine di avvio dal BIOS, aggiornato il BIOS, ma senza successo. l'ssd funziona perché dopo ho installato da questo stesso anche linux o windows tranquillamente
      cosa posso fare? grazie a tutti

      Hello guys.
      This is not my first hackintosh, but this will be the first time to create a hackintosh with thunderbolt.
      First of all, i have read some info about MoBos with Thunderbolt, but im a bit confused.
      I need to create a working hackintosh with Thunderbolt 2/3 .
       
      At this moment i know that we got 2 options (Correct me if im wrong),
      -we can get one MoBo and ad a Pcie Card with thunderbolt (only if the chipset is compatible)
      -we can get one MoBo with thunderbolt integrated via USB-C connectors (like the new Macbook Pro)
       
      What are the possible MoBos that have integrated Thunderbolt vía USB (or directly thundelbolt ports)?
      I have read a lot of buyers guides from some webs , but a lot of that MoBos with thunderbolt enabled, are "discontinued" or without stock
      Should we only choose Gigabyte MoBos? 
       
      I Have been too looking at Gigabyte website, and seems that the Chipset Z170 its the only one with Thunderbolt (vía USB-C)
      ports.
       
      Could you help me with these please?
       
      Thanks You So Much!

      Hello.
       
      It's been about 3 or 4 years since I built my first, and so far only hackingtosh. I did so fallowing a guide written by good guy ^Andy^, witch came with hardware recommendations. I now feel it's time for me to upgrade to a faster system to keep up with heavier work loads. I'm strongly considering building a hackingtosh around the new i7-6700K Skylake processor, but I haven't come across guides for  this type of processor. I was wondering if any of you could recommend me a motherboard that's compatible and that won't become a hassle when trying to install OS X. Also, if there's a guide you know of, please let me know.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      I'm currently running a Windows 7 x64 PC with:

      8GB DDR3 Ram

      AMD FX 4170 GPU

      AMD Radeon HD 7870 CPU

      1TB HDD (Windows 7)

      150GB HDD (Blank)
       
      Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard
      I am aware that getting OSX on an AMD machine is not an easy task, but can it be done with my setup?

      I am currently running OSX 10.8.3 in VMWare which is OK but lags a fair bit and lacks any kind of 3d acceleration and would like to be able to dual boot it natively alongside windows on the 150GB HDD.

      Thanks
