[GUIDE] MSI H81M Motherboards - Basics of a Computer Build - Budget Hackintosh Builds - UEFI Dualboot - OS X El Capitan WIP*

Recommended Posts

You can always boot using the USB installer.

Thank you so much! I had to reinstall the OSX, and used the Clover to patch the AppleRTC. Then enabled the BIOS USB power jumpers. Finally, everything works!!!!

Wanna hug you!!! :P

If we disable SIP with the values in your guide and copy all kexts to the 10.11 folder, is it possible to upgrade from yosemite to el capitan directly from the App Store? I have already updated Clover to the latest build. 

 

I have the same specs as your build except I have a different processor (i5-4690k). Again, thank you for making a very clear and comprehensive guide.

Is it important for you to upgrade to El Capitan right now? If not I suggest you wait. Currently if you upgrade now, the back 4 usb 3.0 ports will not work. This is because these ports are controlled by a 3rd party controller named VIA. Only Intel USB controllers work natively at this time. All USB 2.0 ports work fine as well as any front usb 3.0/2.0 ports work since these are controlled by Intel.

 

As for upgrading from the App Store, yes it's possible. I've done this before. So just make sure your config.plist is setup to use CSR config. Add all necessary kexts to the Clover 10.11 folder. Something new that you have to do is that you must replace a Clover Driver. If you use Clover Configurator, mount your EFI partition and then go to Install Drivers. You'll see that OsxAptioFixDrv is installed since its in grey. Click on it so that the box turns white. Now install OsxAptioFix2Drv by clicking on it. 

We're replacing the old OsxAptioFixDrv with version 2 since the old driver causes OS X El Capitan to fail to boot.

 

Remember that if you are using an NVIDIA graphics card, you must disable it by booting with the flag nv_disable=1. You cannot use Yosemite NVIDIA drivers on El Capitan. 

 

And that's pretty much it. After the Install OS X El Capitan app restarts your computer, the clover boot loader should show you a new partition saying install OS X El Capitan. Boot to this partition since this is where the installation will begin. Let it install and restart. Then that partition will disappear automatically and you're left with your normal partitions. Boot to your OS X partition and that should boot you to the desktop. Then download the El Capitan Nvidia web drivers to get the graphics card working again.

Thank you for the prompt response. I appreciate the information/knowledge you've provided.  I will go ahead and wait till there is support for the USB ports.

Thank you so much for this wonderful guide. It is great!! I have now successufully buit two build with MSI H81I mainboards, one uses an 13-4170 and the othe a pentium G3258 and they both work perfectly with Yos´mite 10.10.5. I have just updated both to El Capitan release version. The  one issue that has come up is that the Renasas USB 3.0 does not work properly. It is eventually recognized but works very very slowly to a point where it cannot be used. I have also noticed that if I plug it into that port and try to boot it will kernel panic. Have you come across any solutions for this issue yet?

 

Again thank you very much for preparring this guide.

Thank you for the feedback! Right now 3rd party USB controllers (VIA, Renasas) do not work on El Capitan, which is why the back 4 usb 3.0 ports don't work as intended. I recommend that if you really need those ports working, then use OS X Yosemite. I do not have a time frame of when there will be a fix for this.

Thank you for this guide. I know a lot of time and effort has gone into it and I appreciate the effort. Following it I have successfully set up my computer with the latest Yosemite 10.10.5. and planning to stay with it for a while.

My equipment:

MSI H81M-E34 MB

16 GB RAM

Intel i7 3.6 Ghz

Broadcom WiFi/Bluetooth card AzureWave AW-CE123H sitting in a Gigabyte PCI-e card.

SSD X 2

Nvidia Geforce GT 720 2GB

all happily living in a modified G5 Tower

 

All items working and no complaints. Minor hick-up with audio (ALC887) in the beginning.

 

Thanks again. :lol:

Glad you found the guide useful! :) Hackintosh can be a bit of a pain but I believe its rewarding at the end. I'm considering adding bluetooth/wifi to my hackintosh build as well whenever I have the time.

Good Topic!

NVDIA Web Driver Updater.app show you the correct latest version for each OSes you have?

Yes it does. The screenshot taken was just a sample on how it works. The driver for Yosemite installed and the latest drivers are the same since that's what NVIDIA released.

Could you please update the tutorial? I have the same motherboard with i3-4130 and nvidia gtx 750ti and for me USB3.0 doesn't work. Specially when i download the pack 0.7 i can see that there are more folder and file in the package and i don't know what to do :( 

And btw if i follow the post-installation guide from tonymac (using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]) my system boot after the installation of the nvidia driver, if i follow the post-installation of this tutorial it doesn't. :(

You should be aware that these motherboards use a 3rd party USB 3.0 controller. Those ports will not work unless a developer makes a patch unfortunately. So if you really need those ports working, you may have to downgrade to OS X Yosemite. And what post installation are you following? This guide was not updated to OS X El Capitan due to the USB 3.0 ports problem.

Oh, the first page of the tutorial it say that USB3 works, and when i go in the download page for the H81M packs the release 0.7 say:

  • Added updated patched IOUSBFamily Kext which enables all USB 3.0 ports, faster restart and shutdown speeds, and stability when sleeping and waking

If i decide to don't use the back USB3.0 ports, could you tell me if on El Capitan the wifi key TP-Link WD3200 works, or suggest me a driver or kext? Because i don't have ethernet cable and i really need internet on my desktop.

That's only for OS X Yosemite. I have not updated the pack for OS X El Capitan. As for getting the wifi key working idk. Someone with your key tried the driver from this website, installed it and worked for them. They were however using Yosemite.

Has anyone managed to get HDMI audio working? I'm on 10.10.5 and I have an H81M-E33 with ALC887. I've tried using Toledo's utility with audio ID 1-3, but can't get the HDMI audio working. It does work with the 3.5mm jack. Any help would be gratefully accepted. Many thanks.

Hi everyone glad to become a member. Great guide! I chose the MSI B85M-E45 for my build. Are there any differences I need to consider by installing OS X? Will the mobo package provided by you be suitable/helpful for me? It will be my first build. :)

You're going to hackintosh right off the bat? I'd suggest you install windows to make sure everything works before installing OS X. If you install OS X Yosemite then the guide may work for you. There's not much difference between motherboards of this type. Make sure processor and graphics are compatible with os x to have less pain to deal with.

If you go back and read everything on Toledo's utility, it doesn't do the HDMI audio. you have to use the green connector (center one on your motherboard) and connect to the matching input connector on your monitor/tv or external sound system. Or use USB powered speakers. I use the connector on my TV for sound in 10.10.5 with Toledo's script, and the USB Powered speakers in 10.11.1.

Funny thing. HDMI sound works in both Windoze and linux. no reason I can see for Apple disabling it in OS-X.

I've seen other posts to get HDMI audio working with ALC887 on 10.10.5. But this involves running [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 7.0.1 then [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 6.1.0. What will happen if I run these on this build though? As this uses Clover and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installs Chameleon. Is there a way to get the kexts installed from the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] versions without the bootloader being affected? The one I want is listed in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] as ALC887/888b Current v100302.

I'd rather not use it as everything else is working sweet with Clover. But my point being that apparently HDMI audio can work on Yosemite. This isn't because of a particular bootloader, but the kexts and config, right?!?

I haven't run across a kext  or the right config to get it working. It hasn't worked in any version of OS-X from 10.6 on up to 10.11.1.

I use a pair of Maxxtro model # 401238 speakers. Got tired of hunting for what ever would get the HDMI sound to work.

Ok. USB speakers aren't really a viable option for my set up. It's in my living room and hooked up to the TV and sound system. If I go ahead and use the other wizard to get it working. Could I then copy the kexts that it uses and then go back to Clover and replace the kexts that it uses? If so, what kexts and configs would I need to copy back to the Clover set up? Is it just AppleHDA?

      Hi, i recently set up High Sierra on my AMD computer with the help of the amdosx community (i actually used an installer just to confirm that something would work in the first place before i spend hours for nothing, i can and could have downloaded High Sierra the "legal" way).
      However the graphicscard is recognized properly, the 6gig are recognized and i have no artifacts and no screen tearing with the official nvidia webdriver,
      but unfortunally, dark colors have horizontal dark stripes in them and specific bright colors like on left bar of system windows such as settings do flicker like low fps.

      I only used the clover on the flash drive for now and i'd like if it's worth digging deeper of if i should just forget about it as it is a common nvidia problem on macOS.
      Would be amazing to know.
       
      Closer machine infos:
      * High Sierra (misses a recent minor patch as my network is veeeery slow and i got this nvidia issue anyway so i mainly jumped back to linux)
      * AMD fx8350
      * Asus Sabertooth 990fx Ref. 2.0
      * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

      Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows
      This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ).  @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet...
       

      Pre-Requisites
      8GB or larger USB drive Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple
      1)  Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby)

      to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive.  A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download...

      2)  Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg
      3)  Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)...
      Note:  You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website.
      Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition
      1.  Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition
      2.  Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder
      3.  Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU --->  2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System"
      Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent
      Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed.  Don't forget to apply the changes at the end...
      Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System
      1.  Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder.  Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"...
      2.  In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"...
      Clover Settings
      Clover configuration is required now.  The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky.  If not, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad.
      The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below
      config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here.  You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware).  In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine.  Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ...
      What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?
      Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app.  In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)...
      -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/  
      ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility...
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app  
      The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume.  Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)...
      cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command startosinstall.command.zip
      InstallInfo.plist_edited_10.13.2.zip

      Hello everyone, I have an Asus gl502vmk (i7 kabylake + GTX 1060 6 gb) laptop and I tried all the patches/kexts to get the brightness with fn keys/touchpad (I2C ELAN 1200 works with VooDoo I2C kext v1.0 but no gestures/preference pane)/Keyboard backlight to work but no success so far, any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
      [EDIT] (10/04/2018)
      Battery status now works, thanks to @RehabMan turned out to be incorrect SMBIOS (used iMac instead of Mbp) lol, but it drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours while on standby (all apps quited!), on windows 10 it lasts 4 - 5 hours, and on linux it lasts 6 ~ 7 hours!)
      And with VoodooI2C v2.0.1 + VoodooI2CHID kext and patched DSDT, the touchpad is now detected in the sys pref pane but still no input.
      Sound works with VoodooHDA v2.9.1, but the only issue is that the jack sense isn't working (the output device doesn't auto switch to headphone when connected)
       
      [EDIT 2] (11/04/2018)
      The system brightness now works thanks to @onejay09 but I have no brightness slider, and there are 4 extra brightness levels (brightness stops increasing after 12 levels)  and the brightness keys are not mapped correctly, plus the brightness decreases when I plug in the ac adapter, then increases if I unplug it???, the brightness level isn't also saved after reboot.
      battery still drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours, even with brightness at 50%, so apparently it is a power management issue).
      and I also have shutdowns while in sleep mode (I tried darkwake=10 and darkwake-0 and darkwake=no)
       
      P.S. I have uploaded my new report files, thanks!

      Hey, i have problem of Freezes and Glitches with Intel HD 4400 in High Sierra 10.13.4. I have i5-4300U with the following edits:
       
      OperationRegion (GFXH, PCI_Config, Zero, 0x40) Field (GFXH, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { VID0, 16, DID0, 16 } Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10) { /* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44, /* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B })) { If (LNotEqual (And (VID0, 0xFFFF), 0xFFFF)) { Store (Package (0x0E) { "AAPL,slot-name", "Built In", "name", "Intel Graphics Controller", "model", Buffer (0x0E) { "Intel HD 4400" }, "device_type", Buffer (0x14) { "Graphics Controller" }, "compatible", Buffer (0x0C) { "pci8086,412" }, "AAPL,ig-platform-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x06, 0x00, 0x26, 0x0A }, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-1" } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } Return (0x80000002) } And using "0x04128086" as FakeID, injecting Intel enabled and using the "0x0A260006" in Clover config.plist.
      Please any suggestion to solve this issue?
      Thanks!
