Great

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

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,

hi djfremen  did you connect a separate sata controller

SiliconImage3132?

Yes. initially I used this card:

It's disconnected now though. Use whatever tool is free to get 10.11.3 installed on your target. A real mac would work perfect too.

 

Will try to make a compete write soon but Enoch is the key.

No love on Audio. I tried the kexts on this thread. AppleHDA is still loading even though I have the disabler in there.

Please tell us what your system console is saying when it "freezes"

 

I hate that term because it can mean several things (kernel panic in finder, mouse lag, complete lock-up). Please be specific which you're experiencing. Also, why did you build a key with 10.11.2 and not the current download of 10.11.3? I'd recommend using the latest. Is your Nvidia Titan fully supported?

Hey Rockey,

 

I used to run 10.9.5 without problems year ago on z800 I am running windows server on it now but your post gives me hope to try El-Capitan.  Any instructions how to install everything I always used the Chameleon guide ... never used Clover ... what are the steps?  What graphics card do you have I will be trying with ATI 7970.

 

Thanks

I have a hp Z400 with 6 mem slots, xeon w3520, 8gb ddr3 ecc, hgst 250gb and Ati radeon 6870.

 

I have Installed the latest bios 3.57.

 

I have 2 successful virtual machines installation vbox with Yosemite and VmWare with El Capitain working as guests at w7x64 ult oem hp win host os.

 

I tried many (> 20) times to install El Cap or Yosemite on hdd.

 

The furthest i have got is kernel panic that looks like for me. It looks like when everything is loaded and cpu wants to start protected mode or gui or installation program everything fails an i got following memory dump as pictured here: http://tinypic.com/r/23vhyf6/9

 

I tried all what i could think of in combination of CLOVER flags and bios settings but still cannot make any progress.

 

Tried to be as restrictive as I could but always exactly the same result.

 

It must be that i am doing something really wrong since I cannot see even Installer running.

 

Any help is welcome :)

 

I followed all that i could find in this post or some other places on the internet but w/o any success :(

 

Any suggestions?

 

I feel very frustrated and dumb....

 

I do not have any experience with any OS X, however i do have some exp with windows from 3.11 to 7 :)

as well as some Linux experience. It looks like it did not help at all...

 

Thanks in adv! :)

I am not aware of anyone who has been able to install El Capitan on an HP Z400 using Clover. It has been done using Enoch Chameleon.

Rocky12,  Thanks much for your help. I tried to create usb drive with dell precision clover tool however it says that i don't have .app either for yosemite or el capt...

 

I am also not familiar at all with OS X lingo - jargon so, i am not sure about dsdt, config.plist, ...

 

I would be fine with installation Yosemite or El Capt on z400, does not to be any specific, why did readers conclude that I am asking for El Capt, Thread is called Yosemite..

 

Is there any complete idiot-proof description (straight algorithm) of how to do things without much referencing to other posts, because they also reference to someones else post.

 

After 2. and 3. reference I am lost. 

 

It could be any Os Yose or Elcap.

 

any bootoader that works

 

any parameters that i need to enter - change either before, or after installation of os, boot loader, ...

 

I do have a nVidia quadro that i can put into machine in case (i am not sure for the model now) in case OS X cannot install/start with radeon 6870.

 

So please, be patient and clear as much as possible.

 

10x a lot!

You mentioned El Cap in your initial post and also in this post even though the thread is about installing Yosemite.

Clover has never worked for me on my HP Z400. I used Chameleon for Mavericks and Yosemite, and Enoch Chameleon for El Capitan. I haven't seen an installation of El Capitan on an HP Z400 using Clover.

Does anyone have audio working on El Capitan on a z400?  Theres no reason for me to move from Yosemite to El Capitan unless audio is fully working.

 

Thanks

      Hi Guys I have been trying to get my hackintosh to work using High Sierra... My Build is:--
       
      Asus Z87-K Mother board
      Intel i5 processor
      8 gig of Memory
      Nvidia Geforce GT 730 4gb DDR3 
      500gb SSD hard drive 
      I can get it up and running if I take Graphics card out and use Internal graphics, but when I have my graphics card in the only way I can get it to work is to use boot flag nv_disabe=1 .... and the graphics are rubbish..... I am trying to get it working by creating my own DSDT file..
       
      what I have tried is to download and used  RwPortableX64V1.7 to extract 4 SSDT.aml files and one DSDT.aml ... I was looking on this forum for any clues what to do next
      but I a am afraid I am stuck... I have uploaded the files I extracted from  RwPortableX64V1.7
       
      Any Help would be appreciated

      Catalina update 10.15.1 without issue although you may have to make sure clover boots from the right partition.
      HP 840 G2, 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 patch about renaming acpi of EC or H_EC,, revert all ACPI renaming in ACPI DSDT.

      Hi everybody. I am not a programmer and English is not my native language. So I'm very sorry if it bothers you.
      I want to use an EGPU but that requires editing the DSDT file. I have added the necessary lines of code. The other is to remove the Warning and Remark. It was really hard for me. So I look forward to getting help from a kind person.
      I use HP 8570w and this is my DSDT.dsl file.
