Hi everyone. I installed MacOS High Sierra on my computer 3 months ago, in January. After a long way to get the computer fully working now I'm facing a new problem: imagine I'm working or doing something in my computer and it suddenly freezes and I have to restart it. There's no reason why the computer restarts by itself...
Here I also attach my Clover EFI folder in case you need it (it doesn't allow me to attach it so here i give you the link: https://mega.nz/#!92xCiLDZ!WY1F55ZvuP-9WW369EP9KY-3hNLt5sWUgJDxPrbgpPM .
Thank you in advance.
Hello there everyone. I recently put together a CL hackintosh for a somebody else and it mostly works fine; however, he's been having a problem that I (so far) haven't been able to replicate. He sometimes gets odd beachballs that end up freezing the computer into needing a cold shutdown and boot; which usually in turn freeze halfway through the boot process only for a reboot to work.
Recently he mentioned this happened after several hours of sleep (left the computer sleeping during the night), so I'll try reproducing it later.
However, I'm trying to figure out what the actual problem might be. I've got a theory: Wake-up issues with the NVME controller. Why? I've been experiencing similar issues on my real MBP (2011) because the secondary HD ribbon cable has been coming loose. Of course, since it's just a secondary drive, it's a large inconvenience but it doesn't completely shut the computer down. It would certainly be different if this was happening with the primary drive, though.
What do people think about this? It's the first time I've built a hackintosh with modern hardware (my own is Ivy Bridge) and I'd never tried NVME before, so there's been plenty of trial and error involved in this build.
Actually I've installed Yosemite 10.10.5 on a SATA HDD (NO SSD) without major issues. SATA controller is an Intel 5 series in AHCI mode.
I'm trying to update to High Sierra 10.13.2, downloaded from AppStore.
When I boot from USB pendrive (using Clover r4334, config.plist attached), and select macOS installation (installation files resides in Yosemite HDD), installation fails with those errors:
HID: shim legacy 2
USB pendrive is inserted in a USB2.0 port. I've tried to insert it in all available USB ports but error is still present.
Kexts used (all in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other):
AppleALC.kext (used in Yosemite to have working audio with ALC889) FakeSMC.kext GenericUSBXHCI.kext (for USB3.0, NEC/Renesas chip) Lilu.kext (dependency of AppleALC) RealtekRTL8111.kext (Ethernet) USBInjectAll.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext (mouse)
