3.1 Fixes

�  Fixing Audio
Install HDAEnabler7 + AppleHDA-269.25-ALC1150 from Mirone post: AppleHDA For Yosemite - DP's
 
�  Fixing Ethernet
Running Hackintosh Vietnam Tool and install kext AppleIntel1000e

 

�  Fixing random reboots (GTX 580)

Random reboots are happening, situation is being analysed to find the cause [Need to put my BIOS running by Intel GPU even if it will use the GTX 580 when get to the Mac OSX desktop.

If you really wanna use the PCIE on BIOS, you need to install Nvidia Web Drivers. Keep using the Apple Nvidia drivers, but for some reason the drivers from Nvidia will eliminate the reboots.
 

�  Notes GTX 580

Even if I put my BIOS to use the CPU-GPU to avoid the reboots, the problem is that even if I have connection to both monitors and they are connected to the DVi ports of the GTX 580, the true is that the fish test I only get 15fps when if I tell my BIOS to run from the PCI-E it run at 60fps.

Il Francy MacPc, don't update to BIOS 2601 it breaks AHCI driver. 
 
Ru1Sous4, the Asus Maximus VII Hero never had a BIOS version 2304.

 

It doesn't break the AHCI driver either, I'm using BIOS version 2601 right now and it works fine.

 

 

Nice write up. I used yours and some other sources to get my similar setup running. Setup is in signature. Figure I'd share some info in case others need help. To get Yosemite running flawless on my rig I had to do a bit more. Honestly don't have the balls to try El Capitain anytime soon, lol. This setup is sweet as hell right now.

 

Due to having GTX 970 and being a lazy ass that didn't want to take it out and put it back in, I had to install/boot using nv_disable=1, after installation and initial boot, then download web drivers and cuda drivers for nvidia, the graphics was painful during this process, but after installing then boot with nvda_drv=1, fantastic. (Note: Cinebench 167 fps in Windows vs 111 fps in OSX.)

 

HDMI Audio with NVIDIA cards - I followed andrejkw's guide to enable it.

 

iMessage working with this guide here -> Enable iMessage. (Note: I do NOT have a credit card on file with Apple and it works.)

 

Not that I don't trust Vietnam tool, but prefer to get the source to add to my own kext collection and install myself.

AppleIntelE1000e.kext.zip

 

Edit: I have recently moved from AppleIntelE1000e to IntelMausiEthernet. I'm sticking to it since it is newer developed and is being maintained. Here is the link and kext.

IntelMausiEthernet.kext.zip

 

Enable Trim via Clover for 10.10.3 and below

(1) In Clover Configurator, go to Kernel and Kext Patches add a new row

(2) in name put "IOAHCIBlockStorage"

(3) in find hex put "004150504C452053534400"

(4) in replace hex put "0000000000000000000000"

(5) in comment you can write what you want

(6) in InfoPlistPatch leave it as is (unchecked)

(7) Save and reboot

 

Edit: Trim on 10.10.4 can be done via terminal and no longer needs to be patched by Clover.

sudo trimforce enable

Edit: On 10.10.4 my audio would not wake from sleep. I used Mirone's new patched kext for AC1150 for 10.10.4. This was easily fixed with CodecCommander as discussed in his post. I inject with Clover as I do with all my kexts.

Using MacPro5,1

 

My config.plist for install USB is on post #10. Obviously recreate your SMBIOS after installation.

 

Good luck guys!

Tried doing everything exactly as stated, but ended up with this error:

Any idea why?

Not sure of all your boot arguments, try my config file in your clover boot. attachicon.gifconfig.plist.zip unzip it into efi/clover/

It always gets me booted into the installer or my operating system.

Thanks so much! This helped.

 

I've been able to install it, and boot into it on the drive I want it on.

So I updated to 10.10.4 everything is working as normal. Clover no longer needs to patch for TRIM to work. You can simply enable it through terminal.

Terminal: sudo trimforce enable

The only problem I encountered was the audio would not wake from sleep. Mirone has updated his kexts for 10.10.4 but still no audio when waking. I am still currently discussing with him if there is a possible fix without using a extra kext but that conversation is probably over already as I have fixed the issue.

 

There were two possible fixes in his post. I went with the first one which was using Codec Commander from Dolnor. A bit a of work to compile the kext with xcode and change some settings but it was easy enough. For those who are updating with this motherboard and using the build in ALC1150 here is the CodecCommander.kext I created from Dolnor's work.

      Script file to clone and help build Clover, Opencore (official and unofficial) repos
      Script will create link to itself in /usr/local/bin/bob
      Wouldn't hurt to check there are no "Bob"'s there, i "Hope" there isn't.
       
      Then you only need to type bob. and a parameter
      "n" for NDK repo, unofficial
      "a" for ACID repo, official
      "c" for CLOVER
      It also takes "all" for ALL, if your game
       
      Easier typing bob than.....usual stuff
      Enjoy
