I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.
I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?
I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.
Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it) Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version? If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?
My hardware: MSI x399 Meg Creation 2990WX 64GB ram @2933Mhz Radeon 7 Sata: Samsung 130GB SSD M.2: Samsung 970 Pro 1TB(latest firmware)
Using OpenCore 0.5.6 (NVMeFix NVMeDxe installed) I have successful installed OSX catalina onto my 130GB. It works flawlessly.
and then I figure I should do it on my M.2 drive. It installs flawlessly, at the last stage of installation, it naturally restart and thats it. I can not boot into this newly installed OS on the M.2 drive. it keeps throwing: "error loading kernel cache 0x1"
I have tried deleting the prelinkedkernel from recovery partition. Tried rebuilding cache(I have not installed any kext into L/E).
All this time, I can use the same boot USB to boot into catalina on my sata 130Gb SSD working just fine.
attached is my EFI folder. I have tried all the suggested SMBios iMacPro1,1 MacPro6,1 MacPro7,1
is this ruled out that samsung 970Pro doesnt work?
Me (and many other people) experience eye-ache from new Macbooks (and windows machines).
I have spent two years of trial-and-error and found that installing macOS Mavericks on my MacBook (pro 13 late 2013, Intel Iris 1536 MB) resolves the issue of eye ache completely. (it is believed that newer systems use harsher version of temporal dithering that causes of a certain group of indivisuals eye aches).
I cannot stay at Mavericks because of software support and security issues, so the only thing is an issue now:
How can I take drivers from Mavericks and install them on Catalina? (I tried replacing .kext in /System/Library/Extensions with old files but it didn't work).
It's been known that there is indeed support for VGA in Coffe Lake and that support for prior iGPUs was deprecated as the VGA port was removed since Sierra. However, using port patches in Devices Properties (Open Core), I made the VGA port to work again with graphics acceleration.
But there's a catch, the port is glitchy. Once macOS displays the accounts, you can see the Enter Password box with the blur effect. But after some seconds, the whole display will turn to another color (depends on the background). I'm not sure why that happens.
I would suggest learning what are Ports, Connectors, Indexes, Types, and BusIDs before continuing, otherwise, you would get lost.
These are the patches that are supposed to enable the VGA port according to the Whatevergreen Intel guide:
06020000 02000000 30000000 // Option 1
06020000 01000000 30000000 // Option 2
None of those ports seem to work. The first problem is that the Index is 6, which does not make any sense as the Azul framebuffer only supports up to 3 Indexes (software ports). So we first have to change the Index for the VGA port on your motherboard, which is 2 (physical port is 0x06)) for me.
So that means that the target port is the Index 2, which is 02040A00 00040000 87000000.
bus-id 4 is for DP so we would change that to 2, which is VGA. That is according to what Hackintool says. I also proved other bus-ids but none of the other ones seem to work.
I have no idea what pipe does so I just type zeros.
I think pipe is basically another way group ports. So later I changed that to 10, which is 0A in hex. That means pipe remains the same as it was originally. 02020A00 01000000 87000000
The next part is the connector-type, for which I used 02000000.
I tried the VGA connector-types that Hackintool suggested but I noted some weird differences whereas 02000000 and 01000000 seem to work okay.
Finally, I don't know what flags do so I tried with 30000000 and 87000000. The only difference is that with 87000000 I'd gain more seconds before the whole screen turns to another color.
This is the final configuration:
framebuffer-con1-alldata <02020A00 0100000 87000000>
This is the video proof:
Greetings to the Forum,

all is working great, as i am using macpeets codec with layout id=18 cause i like to manually switch to my headphones.
only one thing doesnt work and its my mic. I tried all the layout ids but no luck.
i am using ASROCK Fatal1ty b450 k4 with amd r5 2600.
