Give these 2 kexts a go AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext already patched both of the kexts are from Sierra 10.12.4

 

AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext

 

 

enable VT-x and VT-d in bios

Thank you Rockey,

These two go in S/L/E or in Kext folder of EFI??

Thanks, but I still have the same problem. Again it's stuck at "waiting on <...><..> IOProviderClass..." after like 30 seconds the screen changes to this (picture attached)...is that a problem with my graphic card (Nvidia quadro 600) ?

 

and I don't need to patch my dsdt at all?

ok I have all of these...my FakeSMC.kext is the most recent one from rehabman including cpusensor gpusensor,....

 

after my first install, istats didn't show any temperature or fan speed. so I got weird feeling, since the fans didn't spin faster while using prime95 torture test. so right now im trying to reinstall everything. 

When the istats shows 0,0°C, it means that system dosen't know, when to speed up the fans right?

 

also I think, a correctly patched dsdt could solve everything right? but using maciASL confuses me, because I don't know which patches I need. I included RehabMan's repository but I really don't understand which of all patches I need. all tutorials I found where specific for some parts, but no one explained, how to choose the right one and how to find out which I need

Guys, I am starting to lose my mind.

 

I bought an SSD drive so decided to install El Capitan from fresh on my Z800, as I am having issues with my gfx card on Sierra

 

I have the following kexts in the 10.11 folder:

jChJ5Jv.png

 

I also have the following flags enabled: -v -dart=0 -rootless=0 kext-dev-mode=1

 

and have Nvidia set to VESA mode.

 

Unfortunately I am getting the following kernel panic when I try to boot into the el Cap usb disk:

 

738Np8Dl.jpg

 

What seems to be causing this? I had no issues the first time I installed Sierra on this machine. Or is El Capitan not compatible?

Hi GreenBunny

 

Finally I reach El Capitan starting and installing from USB to Harddisk, I have an HP620 an old 2012/13 workstation, I'm not an expert but following this guide (  http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/314799-guide-z820-el-capitan-the-great-guide-sucess/)I reach the goal.

 

I'm in the middle of fixing process and I have a similar configuration like your computer. Try to read with attention the guide it function! (or maybe for me)

 

P.S. Where you can from?

Hi Rockey,

 

Right, so correct me if I'm wrong.

 

r7QP1FY.jpg

 

The upper ports (yellow box) are the standard SATA ports which connect to the hot plug bays?

 

And the bottom set of ports (blue box) are the SAS controller ones which won't work in OSX??

 

They all work in OS-X . All the ports work in OS-X . Just don't disable the SAS controller in bios.

There is no need to disable the SAS controller in bios.

I have my DVD, Blu-ray, and 2.5" SSD's connected to the Top black Sata ports.

I have my drive bays storage hard-drives connected to my SAS controller.

I am not using raid however. I did not configure raid. However I could have if I wanted to.

All the Sata ports work with OS-X Sierra. 

You can switch the Sata cables around to your liking.

Hi guys, I was thinking if my problems (audio and firewire in os x el capitan) were in kexts of EFI folder and S/L/E folder, instead of DSDT.

Hi guys,

 

First off.....MAJOR thanks for this thread and installation guides! AMAZING!

 

That being said I have managed to install Sierra onto my Z800, the issue I am having is I can only boot into Sierra via my Clover USB, If I attempt to boot from my OSX HDD I get the following error "boot0af: error"

 

Any chance someone could guide me through fixing this? Would be hugely grateful!

 

Cheers,

Jon.

Yes, That is an HP z800 motherboard.

Good Evening Rockey, and everyone. I hope I can get some help with what is turning out to be a very arduous weeklong endeavor of trying to get Sierra to even install on my Z800. I have so far managed to get the BIOS settings to be exactly as Rockey has them, and have the USB bootable with clover and necessary kexts. The problem is that I end up getting a "(com.apple.appkit.xpc.sandboxServiceRunner) <Warning>: the JoinExistingSession key is only available to application services" error. 

 

I have gotten my clover, kexts, DSDT, as well as the config.plist from a guide that is on here for the z800. I was wondering if there was something on there that is stopping it from going any further. I am adding them below for anyone to check and get back to me. I have spent many many hours trying to get this to install, but no luck. Any help will be appreciated

 

System Specs if anyone is curious

The upper ports (yellow box) are the standard SATA ports which connect to the hot plug bays?

 

And the bottom set of ports (blue box) are the SAS controller ones which won't work in OSX??

In bios make these changes:

 

Security > System Security

 

-               Data Execution Prevention = Enable

-               Virtualization (VTx) = Enable

-               Virtualization (VT-d2) = Enable

-               AES Instruction = Enable

 

Security > Device Security (Everything to “Device Available” except these)

 

-               Serial port = Hidden

-               Internal USB = Enable

-               SAS Controller = Enable

-               Legacy Diskette = Hidden

-               Embedded Security = Enable

 

                           NIC wake on lan = Hidden/Disable

 

 

I have connected my boot drives to the Sata controller.

I have connected my Storage drives( hard drive caddies ) to the SAS controller

 

Check you Sata cables and make sure they are connected to the correct controller.

You can switch the sata cables around on the motherboard to fix this.

Thanks very much for posting this, ZorroZZ.  My Z800 with 3.60 BIOS and EVGA GTX770 is doing pretty well with El Capitan after following this guide.

 

Only one real hitch so far - as soon as I send the box to sleep, it wakes up after two or three seconds.  OSX Console says this is due to UHC1, UHC5.  I've disabled all "Wake on LAN/USB" settings in the BIOS but this persists.  Is there a further DSDT patch I need to apply?

 

Just making a belated note that when I got around to unplugging a USB KVM from the Z800 to test, it would finally stay asleep properly.  I thought I tried this before unsuccessfully with El Kap (it might work there too), but it does work with Sierra.  I think the KVM was sending some USB signal every few seconds which was making the Z800 wake up a few seconds each time after it was sent to sleep.

 

Cheers again for all the great help on here.

Sleep/wake should work Vanilla. No need to add powermanagement.kexts or any other kexts.

Just make sure you have "wake on lan activity" disabled in network settings and disable "wake on lan" in bios NIC settings.

Following instructions from here I have installed Sierra 10.12.5 on my Z800 successfully.

 

I didn't´t touch my DSDT jet, because I won't first to learn and understand what I am doing.

 

At the moment I have Problem with USB and Audio. The 2 middle USB ports from 6 on the Back do not working. For the Sound I am using at the moment combination of three Kexts:

AppleALC.kext & Lily.kext, which MacPeet patched for me, but only with the CodecCommander.kext installed in S/L/E i can hear the Sound!

 

I have patched 15 USB ports Limit in the Clover, but did´n have success.

 

At the moment I am using this Kexts in EFI/Kexts/10.12:

 Hi quattrofx thanks for the comments im gonna attached my patched dsdt and a acpi 3.0a PDF file there are lots of information how to creat dsdt patch 

 

Hi Rockey12!

THX for your replay and BIG THX for all of Hard WORK you are doing here! THX goes also to Chris and all the HacMac Family! RESPECT!  :thumbsup_anim:

 

Following your work I was able to pre- and post install fast everything successfully, except of some USB glitches witch I explained in this Forum:

https://www.root86.com/topic/8508-os-x-sierra-10125-on-hp-z800-clover/?p=96873

and here:

https://www.root86.com/topic/8506-z600-usb-probleme/?p=96996

 

How did you solve your USB & PM? I just won't to know the right way, because I was away for 6 years and a lot of things changed, but I am willing to learn.... It is just easy to take your DSDT and work with it, without understanding how, but not for me.... :-)

There are some more questions on this Topic witch I have posted (it is in German language, you understand it, or?). Should I post it here in English as well?

 

Best Regards

Ok.

 

How did you solve your USB & PM? Should I create my own DSDT or can I use the Clover to do this? If I use DSDT, what stuff should I disable im Clover? I don't won't that DSDT comes into conflict with Clover.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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?
