Issues with a Z77 Extreme4 OS X installation

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm writing here to find a solution to the issues I'm encountering on my computer after installing OS X 10.8.3.

My system is the following: i7 3770K, ASRock Z77 Extreme4, 2x4GB 2GHz RAM. I'm using the integrated HD4000 graphics.

Everything seemed working after installing some kext (audio and OC'd processor with "an unified tool", video and LAN separately), but:

 

- There's no way to make my computer sleep: the screen turns off, the power led begins flashing, but the fans keep going, and the motherboard display shows a (error?) code. Then I can't wake the pc but pressing the reset button.

- Even if I installed the proper kext, all the USB 3 ports can't read any mass storage device I connect: if I plug in a mouse, or another similar device, it works flawlessly, but any USB thumb drive or external HDD aren't recognised.

- After some minutes of normal usage, my computer loses the internet connection. A reboot is the only solution: after that, the issue disappears, but if I switch off the computer and, for example, I don't turn it on till the following day, it disconnects again.

 

The third one is the most bothersome issue, because it often happens when I need a stable connection, so I'd be satisfied with a solution to just that one.

 

Thank you for you help :wink2:

      Hey guys,
      I hope you can help me solve a mystery.
      Even the amazing Mald0n has been working hard to help me find a solution, but now were are both stuck.
      Creative thinking or maybe just help to see the forest for the trees would be highly appreciated.
       
      PROBLEM:
      Mac will not sleep.
      Monitors sleep fine, and come back on with touch of keyboard.
      GPU and CPU coolers are constantly running on idle to low load and will not go on standby no matter what we have tried.
      Even when using full “Shut down” via apple menu the lights from the MoBo or GPU are pulsing slowly, which they normally dont as far as I recall.
      (This specific issue could possibly be solved by using ErP Ready in BIOS. Haven´t tested this since that´s a smaller issue ATM)
       
      Everything else seems to be working fine.
      This problem started appr a week ago, and I have no idea why.
      No major installs, updates or changes that I can think of.
       
      GOALS:
      • To be able to activate sleep via apple menu.
      • To have it sleep within 15-30 secs and wake up quickly (like it did before) via push on Power button

      TECH SPEC:
      • Running 10.13.6
      • Asus Maximus X Hero Wifi
      • Gtx 1080 Ti
      • 32 GB Corsair RAM
      • Intel i7 8700K
      • 2 monitors via Displayport
      • 6 internal disks (2 HDD, 4 SSD)
      • 1 external backup
      • 1 internal USB hub/SD reader
      • 3rd party Bluetooth and Wifi (Asus MB not compatible)
      • No Blutooth mouse, KB etc

      WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR:
      • Used Mald0n’s custom DSDT with latest config
      • IUpdated to latest Security Update
      • Updated to latest BIOS
      • Updated NVIDIA webdriver and CUDA to latest
      • Disconnected LED monitors and tested with old Mac monitor via DVI to see if Displayports were the issue
      • Disabled Adobe CC Sync
      • Run CleanMyMac
      • No start-up apps or extensions in System Prefs
      • Disk Utility: checked all disks
      • Terminal: no info on wake reason at all. (Possibly because it doesn´t sleep, hence nothing is interrupting it).
      • Blutooth allowed to wake sleep: set to OFF
      • Power manager: only setting is “never switch off monitors”. The rest are off/unchecked
      • BIOS: Tested by setting "ErP ready" to S5 > no difference
      • DSDT and EFI folder screenshot attached.

      I think that’s it - otherwise just ask
      I have read a lot of articles on this type of issue, but none with a clear answer.
      So if anyone can solve this mystery, it would be amazing!
      Thank you in advance!

      UPDATE:
      Of course it was something seemingly insignificant and stupid that prevented sleep: An unfinished PRINTER job.... 
      After clearing the printer queue, it went to sleep but woke up immediately after due to a USB power issue. Possibly an internal USB/SD hub.
      Mald0n used his magic and made a new DSDT file to fix that, and now the machine is running almost perfectly apart from a fickle Bluetooth (fingers crossed).

      Hope this can help others out there with issues.

      Hey all,
       
      This is my first time posting to this forum.
       
      Here is my problem: My main issue is random freezing of my display (i.e. cannot move my mouse) and nothing being displayed after my monitors go to sleep (i.e. lock my screen, wait a few minutes, try to move mouse/type on keyboard. My displays wake up but display "no signal"). I have to reboot in order to use my Hackintosh again.

      Another issue that I am experiencing is that, every time I reboot my system and login initially, my right and left vertical displays do not display correctly until I turn one of them off and back on again. It is kind of hard to describe what is wrong, but basically the dimensions of the display and the orientation (horizontal vs. vertical) is wrong, and my mouse does not display in the correct place on the screen.

      Either way, after some research it looks like this all may be due to my Framebuffer being incorrect. However, I am having a hard time trying to determine whether that is the case and, if so, how to fix it.

      I did manually try to add a Framebuffer ("Kamarang") into my config.plist below, however that did not seem to make a difference.

      Any help with this would be much appreciated! Also, please let me know if I should upload anymore information.

      Currently, My setup consists of 1 Dell U3415w and 2 Dell 2415 monitors in an "H" configuration (both 2415s setup vertically on either side of the U3415W).

      This is all being powered by a SAPPHIRE Radeon RX Vega 64 (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202326) with each monitor plugged via a DisplayPort.

      I am currently running the latest version of macOS Mojave, 10.14.4.

      I am also using the latest version of the Clover boot loader (4920) with the following kexts located in kexts\Other:
      AppleALC.kext AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext Lilu.kext USBInjectAll.kext VegaTab_64.kext VirtualSMC.kext WhateverGreen.kext My config.plist file contains the following:

      Hi everyone, I have been optimizing my Asus x54h for some time. But now I find myself with sierra 10.12.6 installed with the problem of sleep, well: as soon as I put the PC to sleep the fans keep running, after a while they stop for a second and then start to turn again waking up the PC. What do you think the problem is? The notebook is equipped with: Amd 6470M CPU intel core i3 2330m. 4gb Ram DDR3 SDRAM. Clover legacy bootloader.

      Hello guys!
       
      I'm using a Samsung ativ book 2 np270e5g-xd1br, with i5-3230m/HM75, and everything is working fine, except by sleeping and wifi connection (the Hackintosh internet speed is about 10% of the windows/Linux, and sometimes It downs randomly).
       
      I've tried a lot of tutorials but nothing solved my problem.
       
      Hope you guys could help me
       
      obs: I also figured that if I left the laptop for some minutes, It sometimes reboot.

      Hey guys! 
       
      So, this isn't my first time building a Hackintosh, I have done it a few times before. But this is the first time I have done a X299 build and oh boy is it harder! Fortunately at this point I have gotten most things down (I think!) and its running pretty smoothly. There are 2 main issues I need fixed. 1st is that Thunderbolt 3 doesn't seem to be detected at all by MacOS. 
      Here are my specs:
       
      Intel Core i9 9900X, 
      64GB DDR4 RAM, 
      AMD WX5100 video card
      Asus Prime x299 Deluxe II motherboard
       
      So in my case, this motherboard has Thunderbolt 3 and the controller all built in. No matter what I do it doesn't seem I can get it to show up under System Information in High Sierra. I have made sure my BIOS settings are what they need to be and have experimented but to no end. Any help figuring this out would be greatly appreciated!
       
      Second issue is sleep/wake doesn't work. I made a quick small video showcasing the problem here:
       
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/ytzbr9swu95d8d5/Hackintosh Sleep Problem.MOV?dl=0
       
      As you can see, when I press Sleep in High Sierra, it looks like it shuts down or goes to sleep instantly. But it just goes to a black screen, then dark, and nothing I do on the music and keyboard changes it. I have to reset the computer for it to respond again. Im not sure if the computer did actually go sleep and I just couldn't wake it or it indeed just crashed and need to be restarted. 
       
      The 3rd issue isn't really that big of a deal but any insight is appropriate of course. When I check "About This Mac" under processor it says Unknown. How do I change that to what I actually have? I tried doing it through Clover Configurator but nothing happened or changed. 
       
      If there is any information I forgot or skipped please let know and I will get back to you.
       
      Thanks everyone!
