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).
I'm not new to Hackintosh. My first was 10 years ago, a Fujitsu laptop, and after the computer I have today and that I've been updating yet. The problem is that I've never been an expert and today there is less and less info about old boards in new systems. That is why I ask you for advice to continue keeping my pc for a few years.
CPU: Intel Xeon X5675
Plate: Gigabyte EX58-UD3R v1.6
Graphics: Sapphire Nitro + Radeon RX 590 8GB
SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 500GB
Wifi: Usb TP-LINK TL-WN823 v2
Bluetooth: Usb Iogear GBU521W6
I installed Catalina and is stable. The basics work but I would like to improve it by solving the following faults (in order of priority):
My SSD is not indexed and I can't change it. Spotlight and Time Machine don't work. It may be related, but the SSD has a Folder icon instead of a SSD icon. I've searched but can't find a solution.
The graphics card only have the Displayports working. I know there are threads that say how to solve it but in my case none has worked.
Sleep not working. It does not turn on if I press the keyboard or mouse and if I use the power button the screen keep black. Again, I have read threads about this but I didn't find the solution.
Continuity/Handoff not working. I don't know where to start, I don't even know if my usb wifi and usb bluetooth is compatible for this. I need it because I think it's important for the next point.
Sidecar. I have an iPad Pro and I need this working. I tried on wifi + bluetooth and nothing, not find the device. A better option would be a Usb-C cable but my motherboard doesn't have it. One thing, I read it's important H264 and HEVC decoding ok. I tested and both are ok.
I add the folders I have in the EFI partition, the config.plist and the list of kexts I use.
Thank you very much, any advice I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi, I want to install MacOS Catalina on my laptop.
I was installed MacOS Mojave previously but i had a lot of problem, for example my wifi's card (Dell DW1820A) had a problem: My pc sometimes doesn't boot up or pc after some minutes crashed or slowed.
Now i want to try again to install macOS.
this is my spec:
CPU: i7 6500U with HD520
SSD: 500GB SSD Samsung
Wifi & Bluetooth: Dell DW1820A (Bluetooth: BCM2045A0) (Wifi: BCM94350ZAE)
Ethernet: Realtek 8100
Attached in this thread, my old clover configuration created by me (CLOVER OLD) and clover with Wifi driver (CLOVER) created by Hervè (I had asked help at insanelymac's community)
P.S SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH.
Thanks in advance
I have tried to install clover via no UEFI legacy mode (and with UEFI method) using the method here (http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-desktop-guides/144426-how-install-os-x-yosemite-using-clover.html)
both times I can get to just past the clover boot screen and it freezes after that.
I have verbose (-v) selected in boot options: On the non-UEFI install then it hangs on:
"Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key>...."
I have had a lot of issues with trying to get the installer working and many different things that had to be disabled but now it just gets to here and stops. Some times it will glitch out on this screen and give me a the circle with the line through it and text garbage around it where the text in the pictures are.
Need help please.
This is the laptop im using the specs are the same nothing has changed.
