When extra kext you have install in S/L/E or in bootloader folder? 

In bootloader folder.

Once after boot with -x and clear kernel cache and reboot all was fine and without any freeze until i reboot:

Ethernet ok

Lsi Sas ok

This happens only once

Hi guys,

 

Great to see you are helping each other.

 

Unfortunately, I won't be able to finish this guide, as I got really busy with other things in my life (new job, new projects and now mainly using gentoo Linux as my main OS) and also because I do not own that Z400 Workstation anymore.

It was glad to help this community!

 

So, I invite any of you to start, if needed, a new thread and copy the guide I've created to make it evolve.

 

If you do create a new thread, please let me know in a private message (I won't follow this thread anymore) so I can add your thread link in the main post.

 

Best Regards,

Hi,

 

There have been many replies on this post and I am finding it difficult to collate everything I need to install El Capitan on my Z600. I have tried various solutions on the replies and some are for yosemeite and some for z400's. If you would be so kind, please could you give me a step by step guide on installing El Capitan on a z600 with dual nvidia quadro 290 cards.

 

I have tried with clover and am currently stuck on panic cycle. backtrace shows AppleUSBUHCIPCI as the top line with a list of dependancies. I am currently lost in the world of :

1. what is a DSDT file and do I need one?

2. where exactly to I  need to copy these Kexts ( EFI) and/or USB/S/L/E and/or somewhere else?

3. Chown -R does not work to fix ownership of these kexts, how do I fix and do I need to ?

4. what is clover doing for me automatically ? do I need to bother copying kext if it has them and injects?

5. how is El Capitan driver signing working, is it preventing the kextx from being used? if so how do I get around this? is clover getting around this?

6. should I use chameleon instead ? if so what is the procedure?

 

My current setup is a sandybridge pc running 10.7.5. It started off as snow leopard a few years back and has progressed. I would like to get this z600 up with the latest osx so I can migrate to it.

 

Thank you in advance

I'm having major problems getting 10.11 working on this box. Going to use 10.10.5. Others are reporting issues with freezing and glitching with 10.11

Good News:

The Enoch Method works for 10.11 - El Captain.

On other Mac / Hack:

Create an El Captain 8GB USB via the Enoch installer.

Use Kext Wizard to install Micky's Block Storage Kext (posted on page 1) and rebuild / repair permissions in extra on USB.

 

Update on "AHCIPortInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext" and "IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext" - these kexts cause USB kernel panic, do not use for El Cap install!

Boot from USB:

Use the following flags to get into the installer:

-x
-f
-v
PCIRootUID = 0
GraphicsEnabler = Yes
Nv_disable = 1

Hope this helps anyone trying to get this working on El Cap.

Great

Have you boot without -x and you haven't any problem with freezes in finder?

Great

Yes. Booted as above without -x and NV_Disable.

 

No issues other than installing the drivers.

Network worked out of box (AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext) and Graphics (NVDANV50HAL).

 

RAM is reporting wrong amount. Easy fix.

No USB issues.

No Freezes in Finder associated with chipset.

 

Used sil3132.kext from Sonnet to get past legacy AHCI issue. Still troubleshooting that. This may be the cause of finder freezes others are experiencing.

 

I'll report back if I make some headway.

OK - I'm 100% running now without issues on 10.11.3!   :thumbsup_anim:

 

Various issues fixed with DSDT (including Intel ESB2 AHCI).

 

My advice is to wait to install DSDT though, only after successful usb install (don't use it on USB extra).

 

Attached you'll see my extra folder. Please disregard sil3132.kext if you don't have that hardware.

 

Keep me posted if anyone gets this working with Clover.

 

Thanks,

      I'm transitioning from Clover to Opencore. I thought the process will be simpler but it turns out it isn't. I have created a bootable Catalina USB with Opencore but stuck at this error. I have attached my EFI and the verbose output. Anyone please provide some guidance please?
       
      The laptop is HP Pavilion 15 Gaming:
      Intel Core i7-9750H
      16GB RAM
      256GB SSD + 1TB SSD
      PS2 Keyboard + I2C Trackpad

      Hi, I wanted to transpose my CLOVER installation to OpenCore for future updates.
       
      I followed this guide and after some googling
      https://github.com/dortania/vanilla-laptop-guide
      I've fixed the LOG: EXITBS error (RANDOM SEED like error).
      Now I still receiving the IOPCI error (kernel_task kernel panic). 
       
      My CLOVER is fully working.
      - Backlight and Monitor
      - Trackpad
      - i7-7700HQ
      - Battery Patch
      - Camera and Audio (B&O)
      - Keyboard
      - dGPU GTX 1050 is turned off
       
      On OpenCore I translated everything except the battery (I just need to apply the If statement in ACPI), but I want first to boot on Mac OS using the OpenCore.

      **********************************************************************************
      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
      **********************************************************************************
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
       

       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.

      What is not working
      Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).  
      What is not tested
      USB c 3.1 port (I have partially tested the USB 3 functionality of the port and it seems to be working fine with the SSDT-UIAC.aml here) Microphone port
