New here, I used to do macs but mainly PCs now. So please excuse my ignorance. Mac stores are closed in Arizona, My friend has a circa 2015 Macbook Pro. On startup, the line goes about halfway and then goes to a spinning icon that goes on and off. I did a disk repair and permissions , but it still does the same. So I tried to reload the OS, it says not found, apparently you cannot download Yosemite anymore. So, the rest of my machines are windows. Where do I get Yosemite and how can I build it on a Windows machine that I can have the Mac start up. Help please.
A big thanks to wegface for teaching me a lot of things.
Tested on Catalina 10.15.4 and Clover EFI 5104 (Catalina Patcher)
- realtek sd card reader (pm me if you have a fix)
**CPU patches are disabled, if you are using a locked BIOS you must enable them**
- Install it in UEFI Mode and change your hdd partition table to GPT.
- You will be able to install ANY OS in EFI mode, even if this pc does not support EFI at all! (No guide available for this)
You will need:
My unlocked BIOS (OPTIONAL) (here) Latest Clover config from CCE Bank (here) (asus k53sj-kylon) Rehabman Voodoo PS2 Controller (here) acidanthera AppleALC (here) acidanthera Lilu (here) acidanthera VirtualSMC (here) acidanthera SMCBatteryManager (here) acidanthera SMCLightSensor (here) acidanthera WhateverGreen (here) Mieze Realtek RTL8111 (here)
Catalina update 10.15.4 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand and clover 5107
Catalina update 10.15.3 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand.
Catalina update 10.15.2 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand.
Catalina update 10.15.1 without issue although you may have to make sure clover boots from the right partition.
HP 840 G2/G3, working with OS X 10.15 Catalina, for this to work you will need the SSDT-ECUSBX.aml and place that EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched.
Make sure you remove Remove all patches about renaming acpi of EC or H_EC, revert all ACPI renaming in ACPI DSDT.
My method to install OS X on the SSD from a working real Mac via SSD to USB converter. I then install Clover and add my kexts and set the config.plist
SD Card reader
Finger Print device
Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10
WiFi and BlueTooth working OOO using the below hack
Battery status with Rehabman's DSDT patch
Sounds - using VoodooHDA
* Microphone - cannot turn it off or mute
Keyboard backlight - controlled though BIOS anyways
touchpad - using VoodooPS2Controller
USB3 - this laptop has two on board only and I haven't test them using the docking station
Ethernet - using IntelMausiEthernet
Sleep - kind of, closing the lid doesn't go to sleep but goes to sleep over time.
Web Cam, works but I covered it up.
I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?
