@kdp, when you say edit the file do you mean adding the Firewire driver also?

yeah, I'm going to tear down this machine and redo it, I have the bios file just fine, I just don't have access to windows to add the firewire.efi to the bios, the console errors will drive me bat{censored}. I suppose I could fumble around and see if there's linux tools for that. I do have an arch install...

or whatever is the latest bios people are using. I haven't made any changes here in a couple years now. I was assuming that was the newest.

Just to let you know, sleep now is fully functional again since Apple reverted back to mDNSResponder in the latest two betas (Lets hope they keep it!).

Sorry for the late response, super long night last night. reflashed bios / reinstalled 10.10, installed arch on a dual boot, built web server, vpn, etc..

 

I appreciate the time you took to post the file, many thanks.

No problem.

 

I think my (Almost) 10 year old PSU is on it's way out as more and more frequently I have to turn the switch on the PSU off and on again to get the machine to power on, I hope it's the PSU anyway as I don't fancy changing motherboards just yet!

I'm sorry guys. I am quite rarely watch the forum.

I have attached f16 mod15 BIOS for Z77X-UD5H rev. 1.0 with firewire fix.

 

Be careful, I encountered with some issues when I installed Yosemite with latest BIOSes. I was trying to fix it very long time until I installed the stable one f14 BIOS. My machine accidentally resets when I inserted USB Flash drive or something in USB port. It is issue with new BIOSes, i believe. Now I run El Capitan with stable f14 and it's working well.

Can you elaborate on the issues you are having? I am running the latest F16g beta BIOS (with updated OROMs using UBU and the ASRock FireWire driver to fix the invalid GUID console spam) with Clover and don't have any issues with USB devices on El Capitan DB2. No kernel panics, no issues with USB 2 backwards compatibility in USB 3 ports, nothing.

Mine is rock solid too, even better again with a new PSU (Old one causing my NVRAM to screw up) and now mDNSResponder is back!

Not only just me had that issue with new BIOSes. Machine was just accidentally rebooted if somebody was plugging in some USB device after wake up. A lot of people faced this issue after Yosemite update, there are corresponding topics on a few hackintosh forums. I haven't tried new BIOSes with El Capitan yet.

So may be you will upload your new BIOSes with FW fix? I'll try it.

It seems to work well. Thanx. But I've noticed a couple of things: monitor do not wake up after computer woke up (it is needed to press key or move mouse) and one of two back USB 3.0 hubs (upper blue couple) is recognised as USB 2.0. Have you those things?

If I wake mine with the (Bluetooth) Mouse, Trackpad or Keyboard the monitor comes on but if I use WoL from my iPhone the monitor doesn't until I press something.

 

I haven't noticed any USB issues but only have the Logitech Camera plugged in externally at the rear.

Hm, I have different titles and just one USB 3.0 post-1091188-0-20600000-1436643346_thumb.png

Do you use any drivers? Which revision is your board?

This is how my USB devices show up in System Information:

The second USB 2.0 Hub is a NZXT IU01 Internal USB Expansion Hub (what my Bluetooth USB is connected to). This is with the muxing DSDT patch (so USB 2.0 devices in USB 3.0 ports will connect to the USB 2.0 bus/EHCI driver).

Any of you gentlemen have a config that is working for El Capitan installer? My current one that has worked for 3 years now doesn't seem to be able to boot the installer. I guess I'm out of the loop as I haven't done a fresh install in quite some time. Would love a response with a working config to boot the installer and / or instructions for post install.

I had issues at first getting El Capitan installed (but no problems actually booting the installer), and then somehow got it working by just restarting a few times. But then my mac would reboot randomly, so I searched around and luckily found the Gigabyte-GA-Z77X-DSDT-Patch on github, followed the instructions, and now my hackintosh is running better than ever. So I definitely recommend trying it out!

hmm, yeah my setup works just fine, and has for multiple OS upgrades, just can't get the installer to boot. No clue why the installer won't boot. Maybe it's my gtx960...

Hi,

 

I am having ongoing issues with sleep on El Capitan.

 

Basically, unlike in my Yosemite install, the system wakes when any thing happens to a USB device connected to the computer. This includes mice, keyboards and even the switching on or off of the monitor (when the monitors USB hub is connected to a USB port).

 

I have been using TheRacerMaster script at https://github.com/theracermaster/Gigabyte-GA-Z77X-DSDT-Patch which gets the system booted and works for the most part.

 

TheRacerMaster has offered me a lot of advice over PM and gave me additional DSDT clover patches to try and disable USB waking, but it doesn't work unfortunately

 

I have tried a shed load of configurations in the config.plist but to no avail. I have also tried removing my nvidia graphics card to see if that and the nvidia software that was causing it.

 

I have also tested various BIOS setting configurations; changing the XHCI mode (auto, enabled, smart auto), enabling or disabling EHCI and XHCI hand off modes.

 

Inside OS X all the settings relating to power management are set sop that nothing should wake it.

 

Every time the system enters sleep mode, it can be woken by moving the mouse, pressing the keyboard, plugging in or unplugging a USB device or as said above, switching the monitor on or off.

 

In console, the wake reason are EH01 EH02 or XH01.

 

I am at the end of my tether as sleep is important for me.

 

Anyone got any advice?

      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger
      - macOS Catalina install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction  This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader
       
      Download the CloverEFI from official repository (used 5099) and install only with these options on "Install macOS Catalina":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - FSInject (I still don't know if it's really necessary)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - ApfsDriverLoader (Support to APFS partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - VBoxHfs (Support HFS/HFS+ partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - Memory fix drivers - AptioMemoryFix (Fix the memory management of de UEFI/BIOS)
      - UEFI Drivers - Additional drivers - NvmExpressDxe (If you are going to use NVMe)
       
      FileVault 2
       
      If you plan to use FileVault 2, you need to download additional drivers, since what comes with Clover is not up to date and use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.
      Follow instructions bellow:
       
      From current Clover installation, check these options to USB keyboard/mouse work on password screen:
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbKbDxe
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbMouseDxe
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      Download the versions 2.1.0 and 2.0.9 of AppleSupportPkg from: https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases
      We need the last version of AppleGenericInput.efi that is inside 2.1.0 and last version of AppleUiSupport.efi that is inside 2.0.9.
      OR download attached bellow.
       
      Put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
       
      That's it! FileVault 2 will work without problems.
       

       
       
       
      Make things works
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below according to your processor version.
      - Put all SSDT-*.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.8.0.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Copy the Clover Configurator to flash drive because you will need later.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC.kext, SMCProcessor.kext, SMCSuperIO.kext and UEFI driver (put VirutalSmc.efi inside /Volumes/EFI/EFI/drivers/UEFI/). I used the version 1.0.9.
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.9.
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.4.
      - Download the AppleALC.kext from here. I used the version 1.4.3.
      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
      - Download the IntelMausi.kext from here. I used the version 1.0.2.
      - Download the SmallTree-Intel-211-AT-PCIe-GBE.kext attached bellow to enable second ethernet.
       
      Important! If you are coming from my previous Mojave guide, please note that I am using some kexts from other repositories / authors.
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM94360CS)
       
      Works out of box (plug 'n' play).
       
       
      Now you can start the installation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock (Geekbench 4: 5840/27384) and another with overclock [5.0 GHz] (Geekbench 4: 6360/30348)
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      Then:
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - Choose the flash drive (white icon).
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press ESC again and select the flash drive.
       
      Choose the internal disk (gray hdd icon) if not already selected.

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.

       
      Post installation
       
      Bootloader

      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to make the system disk bootable.

      Open the Clover Configurator from flash drive that you copied before.

      Mount and open the flash drive EFI partition. (Inside Clover Configurator, Mount EFI -> Select flash drive in Efi Partitions list -> Mount Partition -> Open Partition)
       
      Copy the EFI folder to desktop.
       
      Go back to Clover Configurator, unmount the EFI partition of the flash drive and mount and open the EFI partition of internal disk.
       
      Move the EFI folder from Desktop to EFI partition of the internal disk.
       
      Eject the flash drive.
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition of internal disk to /Library/Extensions and make kext cache, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
      Last thing
       
      Run this command in Terminal to disable hibernation (doesn't work in macOS):
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0  
       
      It's done!
       
       
      System Updates
       
      10.15.2
       
      Before install, update the following kexts:
      - Lilu.kext. I used version 1.4.0.
      - WhateverGreen.kext. I used version 1.3.5.
      - AppleALC.kext. I used version 1.4.4.
      (all download links above)
       
      Download the latest CLOVERX64.efi.zip build. I used version 5100.
      Mount EFI partition and unzip to:
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi (rename the copy of CLOVERX64.efi to BOOTX64.efi
       
      Install update. Will reboot at leats four time.

      Hi,
       
      I have recently installed Mojave. Went flawlessly. Then I upgraded to Catalina 10.15.1. Went almost flawlessly as well. The only problem I have detected so far is a problem with the sleep/wake cycle. It is possible to let the computer fall asleep, but no wake up then. Hard reset required.
      In the process of investigating I discovered that it is impossible to safe boot into safe mode. So I downgraded to Mojave, only to discover that the safe boot problem wast there too.
       
      These are my specs:
      Motherboard Gigabyte GA H77 D3H  rev 2.0
      MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.1 (Build 19B88)
      Kernel                         Darwin 19.0.0 x86_64
      RAM                            4.00 GB
      Model Identifier        iMac14,2
      CPU                            Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3225 CPU @ 3.30GHz
      Intel Generation      Ivy Bridge
       
      This is the output I get trying to boot with Clover and the bootflags: -v -x (I have also tried -v -x -f and UseKernelCache=no):
       

       
      Thank you so much in advance!

      Hi,
       
      I have upgraded from Mojave to Catalina 10.15.1. It went almost flawlessly. The only issue is the computer  not waking up from sleep. Just a grey screen. Hard reset is required. Of course I have been searching the Internet but to no avail.
      The sleep-awake cycle did work on Mojave.
       
      I have noted that it is now impossible to boot in save mode. Trying to do so produces  the message: " error loading kernel (0xe)" .
      Since I use Clover  I have  tried the bootflags -f en UseCache=no (in addition to -v en -x) .  I wonder if the last one is a Clover bootflag?
       
      Here are my specs:
      Motherboard Gigabyte GA H77 D3H  rev 2.0
      MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.1 (Build 19B88)
      Kernel                         Darwin 19.0.0 x86_64
      RAM                            4.00 GB
      Model Identifier        iMac14,2
      CPU                            Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3225 CPU @ 3.30GHz
      Intel Generation      Ivy Bridge

       
      Any help is of course much appreciated!
