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.
I am currently running on OS X 10.13.1 (High Sierra) and everything works perfectly, besides sleep... I've scoured the internet for an answer but can't figure out how to force my computer to stay asleep (seriously, it's like an infant that's consumed too much sugar). Keeping the computer on 24/7 is wasting so much energy.
Here are my specifications:
CPU: I7-4790k (Haswell)
Memory: 32gb DDR3
GPU: Nvidia 1080ti Gigabyte
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI
Network Card: TP-Link Archer T9E (PCI-E Wireless AC)
Cooler: Corsair H110i GTX (Corsair Link Connected to USB Header)
HDD: 4 SSD's
Other Accessories: Oculus Rift, C920 Webcam, Yeti USB Microphone
Here are the Kexts/items I've installed into the computer:
Clover (UEFI Boot Mode), Drivers (VoodooHDA V2. 9.0d10), 3rd Party SATA, FakeSMC, FakeSMC Plugins, 3rd Party USB 3.0, 7/8/9 Series USB Support, NVIDIA Web Drivers Boot Flag

Here is what I've done so far:
Changes Standby, Autopoweroff, StandbyDelay values
Went to BIOS, disabled Wake on Lan Option
Changed the darkwake settings to darkwake = no and darkwake = 8,9..
Cried myself to sleep out of frustration
At the moment, I turned the hibernatemode to 25 and that seems to shut the computer down automatically. The downside to this is, I need to wait for the computer to completely boot up each time it goes into Hibernate..
Yesterday i accedently upgrade my hackingtosch to latest sierra version. After reboot it had switched back to the osx display driver, which looks awfull. I vent to the nvidia driver settings and updated the driver and changed the display driver to the nvidia web driver.
After reboot just where the login screen used to appear the screen goes black. I can remember when i installed it i ran some kind of nvidia / graphics hack / fix, but i cant remember exactly how i did it.
i this a common problem with black screen after upgrade, and is there a fix for this ?
Hardware is core i7 7700, asus z270p
Let me know if you need any further information to help out.
Any help is much apriciated :-) Have a great weekend everyone :-)
I recently updated my T520 hackintosh to macOS High Sierra, works great with one exception; sleeping/waking.
I've noticed that if I have the bluetooth switch on the laptop turned on, it'll kernel panic when waking from sleep mode, otherwise it'll work fine.
Any suggestions for getting sleep mode to work with bluetooth being turned on? It used to work in Sierra..
Ill attach a copy of the kernel panic that seems to occur.
