Please help me

 

From days ago my Z600 when i put it in hibernate mode do not wake up and turn on with the fan at max speed and screen is off

When try to boot up after shutdown the black screen with the apple instead of a continuous bar with the progress now is a several dots below the apple are turning withe and a restart happen again 

Looks like a cmos reset 

I have to reboot with the usb installer, even i have to boot completely the installer and shutdown to get the system able to restart from HD. I have to shutdown completely to be able to see the usb drive

 

The Z600 is in 10.11.5 from months without problems and i did not upgrade any software recently

 

I do not understand what is happen, could be an error on hardware? But once running no problems apart of some icons moved Virus? i install avast antivirus without success.

 

I replace the kext, config and dsdt with the copy i have but no change

 

If i shutdown the system no problem at all 

 

Any Idea??

 

do anyone install Sierra on a Z600 with success?? I don't want to spend too much time so maybe is better a fresh install

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.

I recommed you test with Sierra as it should have the drivers by default in the OSX.

Also checkout the Sierra installation instructions... Good luck!!!

Update: Finally got El Capitan to work with the GTX 570. I'm enabling Nvidia Inject and I can't use -v when booting, or it cannot "switch" to the graphics mode.

Otherwise the system runs really smooth.

 

I have two problems now with my dual boot:

 

On another disk I've installed Windows 10. It works fine if I set the boot order in the BIOS accordingly.

OSX sees the disk perfectly and also puts without any glitches when I specify the other disk as First Boot.

 

First, Clover (that sits on the OSX disk) didn't even see the Windows disk. So I used the bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f uefi described in other threads.

Now, Clover _can_ see the disk. But when I try to boot, a blue (Windows 10 style) screen pops up and announces the (apparently) infamous

"system32/windows.efi not found" error. 

 

There are many guides and tips on the internet, but they focus mostly on the UEFI boards. As the Z800 is legacy, I was wondering if anybody had the same problem and how they overcame it!

 

Thanks  x1000 for any tips! I'm so close now ;)

Hi Jaymack, thanks a lot for your answer!! It definitively helped me along quite a bit!!

 

I did the following (for those who are interested)

I installed Clover (r3932) on a USB stick (FAT32, but not sure if this is important) - and it didn't work at first. For some reason Clover installed boot0ss which lead to a boot0ss:error while starting from the USB stick. I had to customize back to boot0af and the standard 64-bit SATA setting. I then saw the Windows drive in the menu as a "Boot from Legacy HD1". Windows comes up nicely. 

 

EasyBCD I haven't tried yet.

 

Now I have to get Clover to re-install on the OSX disk such that I can see the legacy disks... AFAIK I had exactly the same settings in the Clover installation, so I'm not quite sure what I have to change.

 

Thanks again!!!

i can confirm that fx 1800 and nvidia gt 610 they are not working with sierra

 

For macOS Sierra you need an Nvidia Gt 630, 710, 740, or higher

or an Nvidia  GTX card.

I have the same computer z800 with dual x5670 however I am stuck in a reboot loop. the installer does not appear to be working. Can you post your working EFI folder in a zip file ? I am using the USB installer with clover boot loader v3577 and El Capitan. The bootloader begins and then computer reboots.. Any ideas as to what is going on ?

Works for me :-) and for you to test...

 

Sierra 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

Sonnos Tempo SSD ACHI Controller

SSD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500GB & 256 GB  Corsair Force GT

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

 

Before you begin ensure that you have a running OSX installation an downloaded the following tools:

-        Clover Configurator

-        ESP Mounter Pro 1.0

-        "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”

-        Install latest “Clover (latest)” on to your USB “Install macOS Sierra” and choose “Customized” and only the following:

         "Bootloader/Install boot0af in MBR"

         "CloverEFI/CloverEFI 64-bits BiosBlockIO" (For PCIe ACHI cards)

         "CloverEFI/CloverEFI 64-bits SATA" (For internal MoBo SATA)

-        Start the installation process

-        When finished mount the USB “Install macOS Sierra” EFI partition using “ESP Mounter Pro 1.6”

-        Copy EFI folder from " Install macOS Sierra/" to mounted EFI partition "/"

-        Copy DSDT to "EFI/CLOVER/ACAPI/Patched/"

-        Copy “LegacyAppleAHCIPortIntelICHx.kext & AppleHDA  & CodecCommander.kext & NullCPUPowerManagement.kext” to "EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Other/"

-        Start Clover Configurator and open config.plist in /EFI/CLOVER/

-        Go to  options and check  -v and and save (In my case there is no need for additional drivers so no need for ”nv_disable=1”)

-        Now you are done with the USB installation media next is to install the OSX Sierra

 

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

-        Start Clover configurator and first go to "BOOT"  and uncheck “nv_disable=1” and “-v” 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…

 

3. iMessage

 

4. Enable Confirm Delivery of Mail Sent in Mac Mail

defaults write com.apple.mail UserHeaders '{"Return-Receipt-To" = "for e-mail@xxx.com"; "Disposition-Notification-To" = "your e-mail@xxx.com"; }'

defaults read com.apple.mail UserHeaders

defaults delete com.apple.mail UserHeaders

 

5. TRIM enable

- Open the Terminal

- run ”sudo trimforce enable”

 

 

 

I have installed on my z800 OS-X El Capitan. Everything appears to be working fine. 

However I have a couple of things I still need to configure.

 

1) I am using an SSD connected to my Sata ports ( Not SAS. I am not using SAS for anything. All my drives are connected to Sata ports )

    I can see all my Sata drives just fine and they all work fine. I do have a PCIe card with an SSD ( 2.5") installed and I can not see this SSD in Clover boot loader. I can see it just fine once I boot up in El Capitan however.

    I have MS-Windows installed on this SSD so I would like to see it in Clover boot loader so I can select it and boot from it. Do you know how I can fix this? What kexts or Clover boot loader setting do I need?

 

2) How can I use a PS2 keyboard in OS-X ?  Legacy Bios only works with PS2 keyboard connected.

 

Update: I was able to fix my SSD problem by connecting all boot drives and DVD and Blu-ray drive to the sata port controller.

I have SAS enabled in bios and I connected all my storage drives in the z800 drive bays for hard drives to the SAS controller by switch the Sata cables around.

I can see all my drives now and it all works just fine.

I am using kexts - LegacyAppleAHCIPortIntelICHx.kext and AHCIportinjector.kext

I am using Clover boot loader legacy

https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/el-capitan-post-install-tools.294/

 

I am using all (4) bay drives connected to the SAS controller. ( 6tb. drives )

(2) 240gb. SSD's , One for El Cap and the other for Win-10, Dual boot.

Bluray burner and DVD-RW.

I am not using the SAS controller in a Raid configuration however I could if I wanted to or I could just use the OS-X Disk utility Raid setup. 

 

I am still using an HP USB and PS2 keyboards.

 

I have dual boot with El Capitan and Win-10

Everything works fine in both OS's

I think it runs better with OS-X than with MS-Windows-10. At least all the apps work in OS-X. Windows-10 has app problems.

 

 

7.2 Surround Sound Via "Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2zs" or "Behringer UCA202" Audio device.

DTS, THX, Dolby Digital, Cinema Theater, Pro Logic, etc.....They all work when connected to an AV receiver via toslink.

 

Audigy 2zs Kexts used - kxaudiodriver.kext  

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/creative-sound-blaster-audigy-pcie-5-rx-working.155891/

 

LG Blu-ray burner and Firewire works too.

My Build is basically the same as a 2012 12-core Mac Pro only a PC version:

HP z800 ( dual xeon x5670 hex core, total of 12-cores, 24-threads )

Memory - 48gb DDR3 ECC

CPU Liquid cooled

Hard drives - (4) 2tb and 3tb. storage drives

SSD - (2) 120gb. 2.5"

Graphics - Nvidia GT 610 El Capitan ( For MacOS Sierra you will need an Nvidia GT 630, 710, or 730 or Higher ).

Wifi-ac / bluetooth  - Apple Broadcom  bcm94360cd PCIE with adapter. ( ebay purchase ).

Audio - Creative labs Audigy 2zs or Behringer UCA202 USB audio device. ( 7.2 Surround sound. )

LG DVD-RW and Bluray burner

Dual displays ( 32-inch and 50-inch TV . 1080p ).

HP PS2 and USB keyboard and mouse.

Webcams - Logitech 610 and HP 310

Speakers - Klipsch and Yamaha AV reciever 7.2

 

Download my Install config and files I used for install below. Should work for HP z800, z600, z400. See Link

https://www.dropbox.com/s/lk235fzgzh2ioad/HPz800_Install_Files.zip?dl=0

 

For Xeon CPU's use VoodooTSCsync.kext for your appropriate CPU. Place kexts in your Install USB only ( /EFI/Clover/Kext/ ).

I would greatly appreciate if anyone is willing to help me.

Initially, I tried to follow ZorroZZ guide (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307064-hp-z400z600z800-workstations-os-x-1010x1011x-installation/?p=2285238) for sierra on both machines listed below. Then I tried the guide for El Capitan, then I attempted trying other methods like [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].

My main problem is I cannot get any of the two machines to boot into Mac OS X installer. Currently I am working on the first machine with e5520 processor. If I use a USB 3.0 drive in the front port, the screen is stuck black even with -v flag. With USB 2.0 I get a '-' then "*********************..." then a reboot.
 

I would be really grateful if anyone has any advice.

Thanks. 

I two systems:
Z800
1 x xeon E5520 2.40 GHz
12gb ram
Nvidia Quadro FX 1800
240gb sata drive

BIOS 3.60

Z800
2 x xeon x5650 2.66 GHz
24gb ram

Nvidia GTX970
sandisk ultra II 480gb

BIOS 3.60

You need nv_disable=1 for you nvidia card to not display a black screen.

 

I have written a guide here if it is any help: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319386-guide-hp-z800-hackintosh-macos-sierra-10121/

Thank you SBC-Studios!

 

I think virtualization was enabled and was the cause of my earlier problems, all thanks to your guid it was very clear.

 

I am now able to boot into mac os x installation, however, I am not able to see my internal hard drive when I run disk utility nor am I able to see the drive in BIOS, I attempted both top port (AHCI) and the bottom port (SAS).

 

Any guidance appreciated.

Thank you so much for this topic that latterly change my life 

 

I have an Avid HP Z400 Workstation 

 

Intel® Xeon® CPU W3680  @ 3.33GHz (12 CPUs)

NVIDIA Quadro 2000

24 GB ECC-unbuffer RAM

AVID Mojo DX interface 

 

and all working amazing on macOS better than widows 

I couldn't patch may CPU dsdt (W3680) but it work fine by the dsdts you made for HPz400 and W3690

 

The only thing that I could complain about is the NVIDIA Web-driver which is only work good on OSX 10.11.5 ONLY  and with clover 3726 and I don't know why 

 

Now after update OSX 11.5 to macOS 10.12.1 I have problem with NVIDIA Web-driver 

I did every thing right with the EDID but the driver still give me this problem that I can't explain in the attached pic

Hello,
My HP z800 has a legacy bios.
I am running dual boot El Capitan and MS-Win-10
I am using legacy clover boot loader ( Clover_v2.3k_r3320-Legacy.pkg ) from post tools package.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/el-capitan-post-install-tools.294/

I have followed tonymac guide for installation.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...pitan-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.172672/

I have everything working fine except for dual boot via clover boot loader.
My OS installations are fine and I can boot into them via the system bios boot options.

My problem is when I select to boot into the Window-10 disk via clover boot loader I receive this error message.

The Windows-10 message reads :
File missing or damaged File:\windows\system32\winload.efi
Error code : 0x0000225


The file is there and I ran repair commands. However this did not fix the problem.
My windows-10 installation is fine and loads correctly via system bios boot options.


I can boot into OS-X just fine. It is when I select to boot into the Windows-10 disk that I receive this error message.
There is nothing wrong with my Windows-10 installation. It works just fine.
I think the problem lies with my Clover boot loader. Dual boot works fine in all my other builds.
However in those builds I am using the UEFI bios and UEFI Clover boot loader.

I followed these instructions on how to configure dual boot 


Fix Dual Booting
At this point, the machine will be booting only to Windows. Insert your El Capitan install USB drive and restart. Use F12 if needed to boot to the USB.
You should see a Clover menu. Select Boot Mac OS X from YourDriveName.
Once in OS X, mount your EFI partition with EFI Mounter v3
Go to the EFI partition
Go to EFI/Microsoft/Boot/ and rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw-orig.efi
Copy EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi to EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi
Eject the El Capitan install USB drive
Reboot
You should get a Clover menu, with the usual settings to boot to OS X and also new Windows options. To start Windows, select Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI.
After future Windows updates, Windows may reset the EFI partition to boot only to Windows again. You'll need to repeat the steps in this section.
You should now be able to boot to both Windows and OS X!


I think the problem could be the Microsoft folder boot options in the clover EFI
Or maybe I just need to use a different version of clover boot loader ?

 

You can download my EFI folder from link as it was to big to upload.

I was able to fix my SSD problem by connecting all boot drives and DVD and Blu-ray drive to the sata port controller.

I have SAS enabled in bios and I connected all my storage drives in the z800 drive bays for hard drives to the SAS controller by switch the Sata cables around.

I am using all (4) bay drives connected to the SAS controller. ( 6tb. drives )

(2) 240gb. SSD's , One for El Cap and the other for Win-10, Dual boot.

Bluray burner and DVD-RW.

I am not using the SAS controller in a Raid configuration however I could if I wanted to or I could just use the OS-X Disk utility Raid setup. 

 

I am still using an HP USB and PS2 keyboards.

 

I have dual boot with El Capitan and Win-10

Everything works fine in both OS's

 

Look at my EFI folder kexts and config.plist

Direct update to MacOS Sierra with a Zotac Nvidia GT 710 graphics card.

 

I performed a direct update from El Capitan to MacOS Sierra.

 

Steps

1) Backup your main drive just in case.

2) Update to latest Clover boot loader.

3) back up your added Kexts in /s/l/e and store them in a folder on your desktop

4) download Sierra from app store.

5) begin update and let reboot.

6) at reboot I shut down the computer and replaced the graphics card with the "Zotac Nvidia GT 710" as I was using a "GT 610" and is not supported in Sierra.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=zotac+710&N=-1&isNodeId=1

7) Power on computer and complete upgrade.

8) You are done. Add additional kexts to /s/l/e if needed however I did not have to as all my added kexts where not removed by upgrade.

 

First thoughts, Personally I like El Capitan better on this HP z800.

Hi!

 

Has anyone noticed some issues with the AppleHDA.kext since latest update to OSX 10.12.2.

In my case it looks like keyboard buttons for managing the volume stopped working.

I can not turn up or down the volume and when I check the Audio settings it look like the audio output is wrong. It shows internal speaker but the sound comes out on line-out.

 

Anyone withe same issue?

 

Br / Z

 

Save yourself some trouble.

I have been able to get VoodooHDA.kext to work. However some have reported problems trying to get audio to work after sleep mode.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/voodoohda/

 

What I suggest is that you purchase one of the following

 

Sabrent audio device

https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-External-Adapter-Windows-AU-MMSA/dp/B00IRVQ0F8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483843751&sr=8-1&keywords=sabrent+audio+adapter

 

Behringer UCA202 Audio device for 7.2 audio support when connected to an AV receiver via toslink cable.

https://www.amazon.com/Behringer-UCA202-Audio-Interface/dp/B000KW2YEI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483843870&sr=8-1&keywords=behringer+uca202

 

Both of these work Vanilla with OS-X , MS-Windows, Linux.

Plug and Play, No additional drivers or kexts requirred.

What I suggest is that you purchase one of the following

 

Sabrent audio device

https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-External-Adapter-Windows-AU-MMSA/dp/B00IRVQ0F8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483843751&sr=8-1&keywords=sabrent+audio+adapter

 

Behringer UCA202 Audio device for 7.2 audio support when connected to an AV receiver via toslink cable.

https://www.amazon.com/Behringer-UCA202-Audio-Interface/dp/B000KW2YEI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483843870&sr=8-1&keywords=behringer+uca202

 

Both of these work Vanilla with OS-X , MS-Windows, Linux.

Plug and Play, No additional drivers or kexts requirred.

 

Thanks corei3cpu!

 

I'll take a look at the "Sabrent audio device".

 

I also found out what the issue was... I was simply missing the Logitech Control Centre application.

The issue came up as I did a fresh install of 10.12.2 without thinking that I needed the above mentioned software.  

Now I can adjust the volume with the keyboard volume buttons.

Yes, I found that the Logitech K750 keyboard for Mac or PC works best with a dual boot hack. OS-X / Win-10

All the special keys work. I use mine with a logitech M325 mouse.

Nice! I use K800...

 

Regarding dual boot Osx & Win10. I'm interested in getting this for may setup as well. 

Does the dual boot work with the Sonnos Tempo SSD Pro card? 

If Yes, do you mind sharing the setup procedure step by step?

Install the latest Clover boot loader.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/

 

Look at my boot drive EFI folder. Copy the Microsoft folder to your /EFI/clover/ on your boot drive.

Download my Install config and files I used for install below. Should work for HP z800, z600, z400. See Link

https://www.dropbox...._Files.zip?dl=0

 

 

Install BCD boot loader on your Microsoft installation.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744347(v=ws.10).aspx

 

# bcdboot C:\Windows

 

Look at my config.plist file in /EFI/clover folder

 

Look at the boot options. or just use my config.plist file.

Rockey, I am having problem with CMOS  reset since I updated to Sierra, do you know what can I do?

      **********************************************************************************
      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.  A possible solution is here, but I am NOT offering any support for this.

      EFI Folder + DSDT.aml from SysReport
    • By Donw35
      10152020 - Big Sur Beta 10 update, using OC .0.6.3
      09302020 - Big Sur Beta 9 update, no issues.
      09222020 - Big Sur Beta 8 update, no issues.
      09192020 - Big Sur Beta 7 update, no issues.
      09042020 - Big Sur Beta 6 update, no issues.
       
      I have moved on with this and do not use my HP G2 for Hackintosh, its mainly used for Kali Linux for Packet analysis these days, with that said I am using the HP 840 G3 for Hackintosh. I transitioned to OpenCore and Big Sur for this laptop but feel free to continue to ask questions. 
       
      My G3 has the BCM84360CS2 mod, I got the module from eBay for $10 and the adapter for $10 off amazon.
       
      Big Sur Beta 5 is working using the below EFI folder. OpenCore 6.1.0 and latest kexts
       
      Method: USB Big Sur installation
      Create an Big Sur Beta5 or Catalina USB installer (google is your friend here, plenty of tutorials there) Mount the EFI partition of your USB installer using Clover Configurator Copy the EFI file attached here. Boot your laptop using F9 and choose the USB installer and follow the prompts  
       
       
      Catalina and old method in the Spoiler
       
       
      Credits go to Jake Lo for creating this EFI file. I did make some changes to his, this one is Open Core 6.1.0 and latest Lilu.kext and WhatEverGreen.kext

      I just recently purchased the HP Omen 17-AN012DX laptop, because I saw some links (provided below),That had shown great success with not only installing high Sierra but also (as of late), Catalina installed in this very laptop. Here are the specs
       
      HP Omen 17-AN012DX
      1080P Monitor
      12GB RAM
      1TB Samsung EVO 850 SSD
      AMD Radeon RX580 GPU
       
      https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/ivbfvq/catalina_running_on_a_hp_omen_intel_i7_8th/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Now the thing is, it hasn't been easy to get through to anybody on these forms and that's the reason why I'm posting this here. To see if anybody could possibly help out. Now mind you, I was on Tony Mack (with the link that I just included above), and was going back and forth with requesting help. Well it didn't take long and I definitely got some good response. In fact there was a person on their by the name of "sdascalescu"Who had not only talk to me about the success he had with installing Catalina but also told me that it was not going to be possible to install 10.15.7 but rather 10.15.3 due to the AMD RX 580 primary output which is set by default to HDMI which basically makes the laptop monitor unusable, but will allow you to use an external monitor.
       
      As we went back and forth on this, I guess the moderators felt not too comfortable with him supplying his EFI file (which I'm glad I downloaded immediately), but the way he compress a file he used an RAR compression program instead of a zip compression program. And as some of us already know sometimes when you reopen an RAR file, that the DSDT files can get jacked up a bit at times. In any case, I used his EFI file and try to install 10.15.7 to no avail. In the meantime I was trying hard and spent quite a few hours trying to find the full install two 10.15.3 and could not find it somehow except on a torrent website. Of course it's an older file so it's not easy to download because there's not a lot peers on their supplying this file anymore. Once I mentioned this on Tony my they quickly banned me and also pretty much got rid of all the commentary that we had that created a page and 1/2 of useful dialogue and I even think that that other person got banned as well for supplying that EFI file.
       
      It's pretty frustrating at times to work with people that show no compassion or understanding, especially when you're dealing with a hacked OS system. As some of you know, I’ve been doing this now for over 10 years and have built some of the best Hackintosh systems and have been very grateful to contribute towards being one of the moderators here on insanely Mac hosting “Mac Mod of the Month.” That was a ton of fun! seeing all the incredible creative ideas and builds has been nothing short of amazing!
       
      In any case, I would like to be able to supply this EFI file (in a zip format) and if anybody has the same exact model laptop (or any HP Omen Laptop) with the specs that I have and has had the same kind of installation success as the other people have, please let me know what it is that I need to do to make this work because I am having a tough time installing the software because it keeps on getting locked up so I am not able to install this as of yet. Below is good to be a screenshot of where the installation process stops. I hope that someone will be able to see this and give some input on what to do next. Thank you for taking the time to look at this and I look forward to any help anybody can give, again thank you!
       
      I have supplied a Google Drive link for you to download the EFI Zip file:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QkS9byhA8O0lf9cl1VknVPorEeOWvIWC/view?usp=sharing
