New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

 I had iStat working great with fakesmc and sensor kexts, but after a reinstall it went crazy and iStat started crashing in the menubar. I'm currently trying to get it working again but when it was working all I had done was install the kexts with kext utility and it worked fine.

 

 

It won't work because FakeSMC loads from EFI first so I would think that will cause some conflict with the FakeSMC in /S/L/E.  I also think that FakeSMC cannot be replaced in EFI partition because I have to assume the script was written specifically for this Board.

 

I am also unsure how it will work with legacy install/boot/Chameleon unless there is a setting that will ignore the EFI or the EFI files do not get installed when installing legacy way?

The HermitCrabs BIOS contains FakeSMC. It's not loaded from the EFI partition.

 

In any case, OS X will always load the copy of the kext with the highest bundle version so if you install a newer version in /S/L/E that will take preference over the one in the BIOS.

That's good to know sorry about the incorrect information in my prior post. If fakesmc were in the efi would the same rule apply?

Good to know. I know it worked before. Just wish I could figure out why iStat keeps wigging out on me now.

 

On my system, the latest release of the iStat Menus.app version 4.20 also fails to load and crashes under both the OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.1.

Holy {censored} I never even thought of that. I tracked down 4.1 and it's working great. I've got CPU and Memory displaying, although CPU temp sensors aren't being detected. Just need to figure that one out, but no crashing! Thanks dude! I was banging my head against the wall with this thing. I tried 3 reinstalls, different sensor kexts, reinstalled iStat several times. It's always the easiest thing you don't think of. Now if I could just get audio working (Quo's patch isn't doing it), I'd be all set.

Patience I have, what I do not have is 2x nvidia  or ati cards to test...

 

Some advice for you on multiple discrete gfx cards:

1. do not touch BIOS settings(let everything to auto)

2. make sure card in slot 1 have display connected to it, as test try with display connected only on it

3. test at first only card ports closest to the motherboard and avoid the use of HDMI port best is DVI

 

Good luck!

 

 

Lol ok, fair enough ;)

 

Thanks for the advice. I tried all the above, but still no luck.... I wonder if the bios writes a log somewhere... maybe accessible through the uefi shell? But that would also mean storing incrmental data in the ROM, which has a limited capacity....

I have been struggling most of the night trying to figure out why my EVGA GT 640 won't  work.  It boots up but only to a grey screen?  Not sure if I need to disable the integrated Graphics or what or possibly PCIRootUID=1 or 0?

 

And whats going on with the unknown CPU model?  It is in the list of supported processors on Wiki.  Intel i7-3770K

 

Here is a snippet of the dsemg.

With the EFI install its a bit confusing many aspects, such as just before the install and after.

 

You choose EFI install or do you choose the flash drive from F12 for example.   How can you run commands like you do in Chameleon on the bootlline?  I want to try PCIRootUID=1 for example.  I know you use nvram commands but for example I run the command -v how do I undue it?

 

Examples:

 

sudo nvram boot-args="-v"

How do I change it back to non verbose?

 

Can add PCIRootUID=1 and then change it back to whatever the default was?

 

I have the latest Osmosis 828 and I am lost as to why the EVGA GT 640 will not work.  That is fully supported in all my other builds 10.9.1 and I have several.

 

I had to reboot so many times I the file system got corrupted cannot be repaired, have to reinstall.  One of the installs takes 8 minutes and the other says 28 minutes so one of them must be UEFI and the other Legacy.  I have to assume booting to the flash drive will be Legacy install then right?

 

From Laceomni page 43, thread #856

  • #5 Select UEFI:Install OS X Mavericks

Maybe a screen shot because I don't see that line what so ever.  Keep in mind my flash drive partition was made GUID not master boot record maybe that could be the reason for the difference?

 

Here is what I have from F12:

 

Install OS X Mavericks

UEFI: USB USB Hard Drive 

 

Is the second choice the UEFI installer and the first one a Legacy install?

 

The BIOS is majority flakey and crashes a lot.  Sometimes I see a flashing cursor other times it just won't let me do anything in the Bios, I have to reboot.

 

If I have the EVGA GT 640 card in place no matter what I do I cannot boot using the integrated GPU I get a black screen.  Then when I take out the Discrete Card I still get a black screen until I reboot a couple of times.

 

I will continue to work with it hopefully come up with something but its a lot more work than any of my other Chameleon Builds I can tell you that.

 

I am not complaining or trying to bash the board or its  Bios, I am sure its because I am doing things wrong or have unsupported hardware.

 

Maybe a chance I have a bad Bio chip/board?

 

My Configuration is exactly the same as the Z77X in my Signature except for the TP Link wireless card I have in slot 3 since I cannot get it to fit into slot 2 being the discrete covers over that slot.

 

 

 

EDITED:

 

Removed the Discrete Card and again same issue the screen is black and blinking have to reboot a few times to get back into the Bios major bug.  Loaded Optimized setting in Bios.  Went back into Bios Chose IGUP for Init Display First and Enabled for integrated graphics, saved.  Went back into Bios and Guess what the changes I made went right back to default.  Auto and Auto.

 

Flashed Factory fresh Bios followed by Osmosis same deal over and over again.  Tried a different Graphics card ATI HD 6870 by Gigabyte and same deal boots in to OSX with Grey Screen.

 

Every time I put in a Discrete card the Quo Splash Screen freezes and or/the Bios Freezes.   This is Osmosis 828.

 

I am not having any issues with the Intel 4000 but on occasion the Bios still freezes.

 

EDITED AGAIN:

 

I didn't give up and set up boot-args combinations still no luck just a gray screen which I have seen before without GraphicsEnabler=yes or PCIRootUID=1 or 0.

 

sudo nvram boot-args="-v PCIRootUID=1 GraphicsEnabler=yes"

 

To clear boot-args

 

sudo nvram -d boot-args

 

To view boot-args

 

sudo nvram -p

 

Tried many combos without really trying these args, ncpi=0x0200 and ncpi=0x0300.`

 

sudo nvram boot-args="-v PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=yes"

 

etc etc.

 

I can't figure it out other than this EVGA GT 640 just will not work which is shocking to say the least when its 100% vanilla in all my other installs with GraphicsEnabler=no.   Well this is not exactly a Chameleon Bootloader either.

 

I did tray the legacy install or booted with a USB flash with Chameleon but I  got "Still Waiting for Device"  Not sure if the SATA controller is supported in legacy or not?

You answer yourself, the card is 100% vanilla(in your opinion) with GraphicsEnabler=no.

On Ozmosis you do not have this feature.

 

For the rest of the "stuff" you are trying, I think you are doing too much instead of reading this topic first.

I did read through all 60 pages of the thread and there are some using Graphics cards not listed on Wiki, like the GTX 760 for example.  Tech Support told me the GTX 660 and ti are supported and they are not even listed on Wiki, and from this site my GT 640 should be supported.

 

http://www.techspot.com/article/720-building-a-hackintosh

 

So not sure why the card will not work?  For under $100 it would be a great card to use for cost savings and performance value.

 

Is there a chance for it to be fully supported possibly on the next firmware revision?

The Wiki is made by a user like you, if you are not satisfied by it, make a better one or contribute/improve it.

About that site, you shouldn't trust everything is said on internet...

 

Dunno if your card will be fully supported on the next firmware revision.

I've looked at the pic from the link and i think the card used is a 650GTX BY GIGABYTE

Could that be your problem

Well I was told by Tech support that both the GT 640 and GTX 760 will be supported with the next Osmosis release maybe if were lucky in about a week or so.

 

That is great news for sure.

@0SxFr33k. I'm just using what I've looked at from the link.

and i have no idea what the next bios update with bring to this motherboard. but i do appreciate all there hard work from ppl involved

i think sometimes ppl in the hackintosh  scene ask to much i.e. trying to use cards i.e. graphics or wifi. which a not on the apple white list and expect it to work

and perhaps expect a instant fix if it dosent

well lets be real about it. it a hackintosh and a hobby and perhaps ppl are getting lazy there is a difference between help and being spoon feed

Yes I see you point on this.  I think I just rushed into buying the board when I should have thought a bit more about this.  I must have over 10 Desktops and several laptops as well as a Mac Pro 2008 8 Core and MacBook Pro 2013 late all running only OSX on them all working great and I am use to the flexibility I have with them, because of the impressive and persistent work of the developers involved in this project.  I tend to forget that sometimes.

 

When I relax a bit and realize how powerful this board is, the components supported are plentiful for now.

 

The GT 640M was in one of the IMacs.  I know its a Mobile version.

 

EDITED:

 

I thought the GT 640 was in either an iMac or MacBook Pro at one point so it looks like it was only the 650 then.

Self encrypting disks

 

Folks, 

I have been wondering about self encrypting disks on the AOS. Is there a BIOS (Oz) switch that allows recognition of SEDs? Or does anyone of you have a recommendation for a SATA controller that would have a BIOS and would pop up the window to enter the different passcodes for SEDs? This is one of the features missing in the original, and I thought the copy should be better than the original.  :P Maybe a kind soul can share info?

 

 

just bumpin': Has anyone had any success with self-encrypting drives on his Quo machine?

IMHO not many will look into this, SSD's are still not cheap and one with SED is extra, I for one, I have no "plans" in getting one or such SATA controller for test, but I have some advice for you:

 

1. For SED drive:

The UEFI driver that cover most of this is "OpalSecurity" GUID: 59AF16B0-661D-4865-A381-38DE68385D8D

You can get this module from various UEFI BIOS Vendors, extract it and insert it in you favorite BIOS for test then give it a try.

You can also look at leaked AMI source if you want to know how this works...

 

2. For SATA card:

Just make sure you get one with UEFI BIOS.

 

3. For BIOS ATA Password stuff, I don't know yet what is required, investigating...

 

Some info I found here

 

Good luck!

Thanks, The King. Will look into it and see if I can work out something. Am not a BIOS hacker myself, but some kindergarten experiments with an random Adaptec card and a random SED capable SSD did not work out (as expected) under OS X. That would be the hattrick, but I don't expect it to work, it is just a remote hope.... It may with Linux, though. Will try to look into it and if I find anythign of value, I'll share.

Could some of you if you have the time check something.  Could you go into you Bios not once but several times to see if it ever gets stuck with a black screen or blinking cursor or once in the Bios if it ever freezes.  It does this on ever 3rd or 4th try for me.  With 1 stick , 2 sticks or 4 sticks of memory.  Corsair Vengeance 32 GB set. This same set works flawless in my Z77X board.

 

I have no discreet cards installed this is using the integrated intel 4000 GPU.

 

I am on the latest Factory Bios and Osmosis 828.

 

Mavericks never freezes just the Bios.

 

 

Thanks

Hi, one my friend buy this mobo and yoday we start to install osx natively.

The wole process goes well, we have a fully function mavericks system,

One symple question, why in thunderbolt info i see no hardware found? 

It's normal or something need to be fixed? and in case of, what? 

 

Many thanks

I had this or a very similar problem back in October. It occurred when I had 2 screens connected - one DVI-D and the other HDMI, trying to get them both to work on the integrated GPU.

There is a fairly good thread in the Apple support forums on (Opal) self encrypting disks and OS X: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2739755?start=0&tstart=0

Another excellent thread (albeit without an answer to the question on how to achieve HW FDE under OS X) is: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/76530/is-a-hardware-based-full-disk-encryption-possible-on-a-mac .

 

A couple of side-remarks: Using Software on top of the OS does not make sense in my book, as it requires (corruptible) software to work. So, Winmagic for Mac is not a solution (or any other software that requires to be run after the boot process has started). For completeness reasons: http://www.winmagic.com/products/full-disk-encryption-for-mac is the link to the Winmagic solution.

 

Of course, many use the SED SSD by Samsung (same here). Interestingly enough, these are not all OPAL compliant (some seem to be). I personally would think this is actually an advantage. :yes: ATA commands are a clear and safe way of handling stuff. Why add third party leverage to the security that tries to keep exactly these third parties out.

 

Therefore the question remains (and The King has indicated where that is headed above), how to reach full disk encryption from UEFI.

 

Short of hacking around in the BIOS (yes I have found some pastebin info on the AMI, but unfortunately I am braindead in BIOS hacking) I see that I have only one option for now: Find an adapter/controller for SATA that clicks into the UEFI.

 

Any pointer is taken with gratitude.

Thunderbolt will show up as PCIE card when you actually connect a thunderbolt device to the motherboard. Not hot swappable but will be detected on restart. My my westerndigital my book thunderbolt works flawlessly. 200mb/s

I have been struggling most of the night trying to figure out why my EVGA GT 640 won't work. It boots up but only to a grey screen? Not sure if I need to disable the integrated Graphics or what or possibly PCIRootUID=1 or 0?

 

And whats going on with the unknown CPU model? It is in the list of supported processors on Wiki. Intel i7-3770K

 

Here is a snippet of the dsemg.

You really need to flash the osmosis 828 bios. Are you on this bios? My second system built for a friend works flawlessly. Mavericks 10.9.2 with a gtx680. Looks like your gtx640 isn't supported out of the box. Recommended card is the 650ti and 670. My gtx580 works great with Davinci resolve. I have a second old gefore 6900gt in the 8x slot which is also running great.

Sorry for the garble tapatalk screwed this post up... Here goes again

GOOD NEWS!!!! (Well for me at least :) )

HIS RADEON RADEON 7750 (low profile) WORKS OOTB, FULLY RECOGNISED IN MAVERICKS !! (With 828 bios)

Woohoo!!

On not so good news, Mavericks isn't liking the Sapphire version of this card. I get a black screen after the boot loader (first apple I guess) loads mavericks. From then on its allll black. I'm guessing maybe if I add the device id to AMD7000controller.kext it may work, (card works fine in Linux btw, just to rule the harwdare out)... It's strange that on Tony's forums this specific card has been reported to work OOTB though.... To be continued....

Now for the bad news. CAN'T POST with both cards on board. Could this be broken in the BIOS? :((

Both PCI express lanes work (1&4). Each card works separately in one of those lanes by themselves. Put both in, no go. No Quo Logo, Nada. I can tell it hasn't posted yet because in this condition a single press of the power button switched the machine off, whereas if an OS has loaded it requires a long press to power off. A single press puts it to sleep. Not the case here.

've tried the following settings in 828 bios, changing one at a time, starting from loaded optimised defaults.

- init graphics Auto

- init graphics PCIe

- PCIe gen set to auto

- PCIe fixed to Gen3

- PCIe fixed to Gen2

- 3mark01 boost set to normal

- 3dmark01 boost set to legacy

- video cable attached to card in lane 1 (hdmi / dvi)

- video cable attached to cable in lane 4 (hdmi / dvi)

In every single test, on power on I get a black screen, no Quo Logo... Even after 5 min wait...

Anyone else tried two video cards (let alone crossfire) with the Oz bios? (King? If u still have any patience left.....?)

My setup: core I5 3570k 4gigs of ram, 2 ssds, HIS + SAPPHIRE Radeon 7750 1024 GDDR5

GTX580 in the x16 slot and geforct 9600 in the x8 slot. Both will work. The gtx580 gives me a streched apple logo on bootup and the 9600 will be just black screen until the osx desktop finder appears. Davinci Resolve recognises both cards when i plug the monitor into the 9600. The gtx580 is used for gpu calculations processing when plugged to the 9600. However only one card only will be used for display. For 2 monitors, both outputs from a single card will work as display.

      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

      Makes OS X and the installer work with the nForce 430 chipset.
       
      More specifically, allows OS X/installer to see the SATA and IDE (yes, IDE, too!) devices plugged in to your computer, including hard drives and disk drives.
       
       
      This kext does NOT make nForce LAN or anything else work, just SATA and IDE/ATA HDDs and ODDs.
       
      ---------------------------
       
      Works great with the Compaq Presario SR55 series!

      Intro
      Hey guys,
      I'm a linux guy so I'm not afraid to get down and dirty here. With that said my current project is to install osx86 onto this server motherboard and get the 8800gts working with QE/CL. I currently have a working system with Ethernet but no sound or DVD drive. The DVD drive wont reconize and I did not yet install a sound card. I am using the chocolate_kernel and do not need any boot flag to boot up. The real problem is the graphics. If I can get this up I don't care about DVD or sound.
       
      Setup
      Intel Server mobo (I think this is the board)
      Dual Processor - Dual Core 3.0Ghz
      4GB DDR2 - 800Mhz
      8800gts 320mb [g80]
      320GB - Portable HDD (for sandboxing/installing)
      iPortable Snow Leopard 10.6.2 - chocolate_kernel
       
      Problem
      The 8800gts 320mb [G80] will not install. No QE/CL, no hardware acceleration. No Front Row. I have tried the following:
      GraphicsEnabler=yes
      EFI Studio
      OSX86 Tools EFI tool
      GraphicsEnable.pkg (or something rather. I can get the exact name)
      Deleted Framebuffer.kext & installing the kexts that come with iPortable Snow

      I have tried 3 different EFI strings that I all found online. iPortable Snow comes with NVinject and NVenabler but they are pkg and I cannot find any documentation on them on the internet. Funny thing about the EFI strings, they install to a directory NOT in Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist . I have to copy the plist from a different directory where EFI Studio and OSX86 Tools spits it out and copy it to the Extras folder.
       
      Please help I am 5 days into this and I have lost sleep over it thinking I am 'almost there' with each step. Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!
