+++ Fixed problem - needed to Install Clover in the ESP, Bootloader -> Install boot0ss in MBR, CloverEFI -> CloverEFI 64-bits SATA.  Now have a great dual boot El Capitan and Win 7 machine which beats my Mac Pro 3.1 hands down.

 

Geekbench 3 - 64 bit multi - 2503 and 23495 on dual X5670.

Hi friends.

 

I'd like invite for everybody interested to my guide of Z820. I inspired on this thread to create my guide. Somehow, I was jealous ^_^:D . Maybe some tips could be adapted to your Z800, and vice-versa. 

And I think you'll find some surprise ;)

 

Greetings

Great Guide we need more people like you good luck happy hackintosh :thumbsup_anim:  :thumbsup_anim:  :thumbsup_anim:  :thumbsup_anim:

El Capitan still running ok here on my Z800. 

 

I have not solved the immediate waking from sleep, when I get the time I'll try digging into the DSDT to see if a useful change can be made.

 

I did have a moment when the machine kernel panicked and spontaneously rebooted mounting an NFS share.  I had to laugh when repeating the experiment on the macbook did exactly the same thing.

 

madmaxisback, good to hear the RME audio interface is working well.  I have a MOTU 828 Mk 3 here which has also been working well.  Best over firewire but the USB works well enough.

 

Cheers

I just finished my installation guid for Z800 with BIOS 3.60 thanks to Rockey12

 

Feel free to test and validate if working for you.

 

My El Capitan installation procedure for Z800 with BIOS 3.60

 

HW Specification : 

HP Z800  with BIOS version : 3.60

CPU: x2 6-core X5650 @ 2.67 GHz

RAM: 24 GB

GFX:  EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti, 3GB, 3072MB,GDDR5 384bit

SSD: 256 GB  SSD: CrosAir Force GT

Monitor: Samsung 4K, 3840 x 2160 Resolution (UHD)

 

Before you begin ensure that you have a running OSX installation with following tools:

Start by downloading the following:

 

Create El Capitan Installation media on a USB (16Gb or more)

  • Start “Easy Universal Installer Eng.” and create the USB El Capitan installation media. (
    )
  • Install latest “Clover 3577” on to your USB (10.11 INSTALLER) and choose “Customized” and only check the following:

    "Bootloader/Install boot0af in MBR"

    "CloverEFI/CloverEFI 64-bits SATA"

  • Start the installation process and if you get a compatibility warning just continue the installation anyway
  • When finished mount the USB 10.11 INSTALLER’s EFI partition using “ESP Mounter Pro 1.0”             
  • Copy EFI folder from "10.11INSTALLER/" to mounted EFI partition "EFI/"
  • Copy downloaded DSDT to "EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACAPI/Patched/"
  • Copy “LegacyAppleAHCIPortIntelICHx.kext” to "EFI/EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.11/"
  • Start Clover Configurator and open config.plist in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/
  • Go to  options and check  -v and nv_disable=1 and save
  • Now you are done with the USB installation media next is to install the OSX El Capitan

 

Install OSX El Capitan

 

  • Boot on USB, Install El Capitan, Reboot using the USB but this time choose the HDD with newly installed El Capitan
  • Install Clover to your HDD El Capitan partition, same as before
  • Mount USB 10.11 INSTALLER’s EFI partition and copy the EFI folder to your desktop, un-mount when done
  • Now mount the HDD El Capitan EFI partition and copy the EFI folder from your desktop to mounted EFI partition "EFI/"
  • Install this Kexts using Kext Utility "AppleHDA  & CodecCommander.kext"
  • Install nVidia drivers
  • Reboot without the USB and all should be working except for graphics and the wrong amount of RAM
  • Start Clover configurator and first go to "BOOT"  and uncheck “nv_disable=1” and check “nvda_drv=1” next go to "SMBIOS" and manually add the memory setup of your RAM by adding each slot and memory HW spec.
  • Reboot and now all should be working…

 

Hi.

I have a Hp z800 with gtx780 3GB and have followed the guide verbatim with the dsdt attached therein but just cant seem to get the nvidia card working properly. During the verbose boot up screen the drivers waits for almost 30 seconds before the login window appears. After login the 'about mac'displays the correct display card info but the display is very sluggish and freezes before any GUI change is rendered onto the screen. during this time the cpu also is used quite considerably. 

I am attaching the vanilla dsdt along here if anyone having requisite knowledge since even if i remove the errors when i compile my dsdt, the system doesnt boot from my dsdt.

any help is much appreciated since i have spent almost the entire last week in figuring it out but in vain.

Thanks.

Hello to everyone,

Installation OK on my HP Z400 esacore, with SSD! Very thanks to Chris and others. The system works OK but, after sleep, the mouse freezes. I have set the Mac OS with "sleep never"....

Suggestions?

Thank You very much.

Hi Dharam,

 

With GTX 7xx series the Nvidia drivers are "baked in" to OSX already.  I have a GTX 770 and simply omitted the step of installing the Nvidia web drivers.  Works fine, including 3D acceleration in X-Plane, Portal etc etc.

-        "Kext Utility"

 

Start by downloading the following:

-        OS X Sierra through “AppStore”

-        Bootloader “Clover (latest)

-        Patched DSDT for Z800 ,

-        Kext’s: “LegacyAppleAHCIPortIntelICHx.kext & AppleHDA  & CodecCommander.kext & NullCPUPowerManagement.kext”

 

1. Create Sierra Installation media on a USB (16Gb or more)

-        Start by formatting the USB flash "Untitled", “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)”, “GUID Partition Map”

-        Open Terminal and run “sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app –nointeraction”

2. Install OSX Sierra

-        Boot on USB , Install Sierra, Reboot using the USB but this time choose the HDD with newly installed Sierra

-        Install Clover to your HDD Sierra partition

-        Mount USB “Install macOS Sierra” EFI partition and copy the EFI folder to your desktop, un-mount when done

-        Now mount the HDD Sierra EFI partition and copy the EFI folder from your desktop to mounted EFI partition "/"

-        Install this Kexts using Kext Utility "AppleHDA  & CodecCommander.kext"

-        Install nVidia drivers (In my case no need)

-        Reboot without the USB and all should be working except for the wrong amount of RAM

Have any of you been able to update from El Capitan to Sierra? I have an HP Z400  I am not talking about making a fresh install of Sierra after creating a USB installer.

How'd that go for you Jaymack? Did you install from the update from appstore or thumb drive? I too would like to update mine after I backup my El Capitan.

From the App Store. I copied all the Kexts from EFI Clover Kexts 10.11 to Other. I used IMac 14.2

Awesome, ill give it a twirl this weekend.  Btw, does Sierra still have the issue with some GPUs because I'm running the quadro fx1800 from nvidia. I'd hate to update and not able to use the machine afterwards as i don't have any other spare gpus lying around.

I am having a problem with Sierra that I did not have before, which is my Bios resetting each time I start the computer. I am dual booting with Windows 10.

I am a newbie and I am trying to use the installation of El Capitan using the installation guide by Zorro.

 

I couldn't get the OS to boot from the 10.11Installer USB stick. I've tried different options for booting that I picked from the forum, but the machines hangs and panics or panics and reboots.

 

My configuration seems very close to the one mentioned by Zorro.

Any pointers to what I might be doing wrong?

 

Thank you very much for helping out!!

      Hello,
      I'm working on a re-install of OSX on a dell inspiron 9400. I was finally able to get a copy of SL on it. But it still needs MUCH work, as the graphics (NVIDIA Geforce Go 7800) isn't properly recognized -- either by model, or installed VRAM.
      It has 512Mb, but only initializes 256Mb VESA.
      Anyway, as a start, I thought it best to use a valid dsdt.dsl for compilation, and start there. I've managed to remove all the warnings, and errors save 2
      OUTPUT:
      # sudo iasl -ta ./dsdt.dslll Intel ACPI Component Architecture ASL Optimizing Compiler version 20110527-64 [May 27 2011] Copyright (c) 2000 - 2011 Intel Corporation ./dsdt.dslll   3519:                                 Return (0x00) Error    4080 -           Invalid object type for reserved name ^  (found INTEGER, requires Buffer) ./dsdt.dslll   3956:                     Return (Package (0x00) {}) Remark   5072 -         Effective AML package length is zero ^ ASL Input:  ./dsdt.dslll - 4997 lines, 158533 bytes, 1633 keywords Compilation complete. 1 Errors, 0 Warnings, 1 Remarks, 577 Optimizations I'm attaching a copy of the above output, and the dsdt.dsl file in a tarball to this post in hopes someone with the required knowledge can help me fix it.
      FWIW

      Buondì, dopo forse 45-50 tentativi e varie guide seguite, mi vedo costretto a chiedere aiuto dato che non sono riuscito neppure a vedere la schermata di installazione 
       
      Per iniziare, la configurazione su cui sto tentando di avviare l'installazione è quella di un HP pavilion 595 p0006nl:
       
      -i5 8400 
      -scheda madre hp-lincs 843b
      -gtx 1050
      -8gb di ram
       
      Il blocco avviene sempre nello stesso punto, ho provato altre cartelle EFI prese qua e la ma addirittura con alcune va in kernel panic... al momento ho vt-d e secure boot disabilitato, il bios è molto semplice ed altre opzioni non sono disponibili (neppure la iGPU, posso usare solo gpu dedicate)
       
      Lascio in allegato il dsdt su ultimo bios e cartella efi
