Try this with LayoutID28:

 

attachicon.giftrial_layoutID28.zip

 

Change back to the original AppleHDA for this experiment !!!

Rockey12 had reported it only works with CodecCommander! ???

 

Thank you very much MacPeet.  With this new trial version sound certainly works well with HS 10.13.2 and its original AppleHDA.kext.

 

In my earlier post I had forgotten to say that I was using your earlier test version with Codec Commander, and I'm using it still with this latest version.

 

I do seem to have one issue in that System Profiler is now displaying the audio device names incorrectly.  I don't remember this happening with the earlier test version.

The last entry is my ESI Juli@ sound card.  Perhaps I've done something wrong here as I note bilbo reported the same Internal Speakers / Line out reversal as with the earlier patched AppleHDA.kext

 

I'd like to encourage more volunteers to help test this useful addition so that it may be properly validated and I hope added to the official AppleALC release.

 

Thanks again,

Hmm, as I suspected the skeletal device names shown in System Profiler were entirely my fault!

 

I'd grabbed the latest 10.13.2 AppleHDA.kext from my archive in too much of a hurry and it must have been a partial file from the 10.13.2 delta update and thus incomplete.  Once I checked the size and then replaced it with the full 10.13.2 AppleHDA.kext from another machine all the device names returned to normal.  This was simply my own incompetence and nothing to do with MacPeet's excellent trial AppleALC.

The internal speakers / lineout reversal is intentional.

This is the only way lineout back and HP front work in switch mode (automatic detection and switching when HP is plugged in).
 
Which devices work with the trial version?
 
Lineout back (green, as IntSpeaker) yes / no
HP front (black, SwitchMode, if plugged in) yes / no
Internal speaker (as lineout) yes / no
 
Mic back (pink) yes / no
Mic front (black) yes / no
LineIn back (blue) yes / no
 
Please report!

Thanks for the clarification on the Internal speakers / lineout reversal.

 

Lineout back (green, as IntSpeaker) YES
HP front (black, SwitchMode, if plugged in) YES
Internal speaker (as lineout) YES
 
Mic back (pink) YES - as Upper Internal Microphone in Sound Prefs Input
Mic front (black) YES - as Lower Internal Microphone in Sound Prefs Input
LineIn back (blue) YES
 
In short everything works exactly as it should, for which many thanks once again.

Let me know what works and what doesn't for you all!


 

audio codec is added in source code AppleALC

Available in the next release.

 

What all kexts will be needed and where can they be acquired? Also, what layout ID?

The audio codec for HP Z800 / 600 will be officially released in the next release of AppleALC.

Until then, trial advance version (LayoutID 28 (1C in DSDT/HDEF)):

In my case I also had to patch my DSDT by adding HDEF to get audio working.

For Z800 user my dsdt u can use as reference i have attached my dsdt +Config.plist + kexts for clover

 

For working Audio i have Attached all the related files u have to put into System Library Extension

if u are really interested in native power management u have to read carefully this thread

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/196771-ga-ex58-and-ga-x58a-dsdt-native-power-management-modifications/

I am going to try this in the next day or two. Where does that dsdt file go?

 

Also, since I have a Quadro 4000 for a graphics card, my graphics info changes. I also have a different RAM setup as you I see.

 just referring to MacPeet

 

https://www.root86.com/topic/7825-root86-applehda-patch-thread/?p=94495

 

 

Hilfe, ich häng jetzt hier seit fast einem Monat bei der AppleHDA fest! Ich habe genau nach Anleitung von Peet gepatcht, aber es passiert nichts! Das heisst beim Hochfahren auf den Desktop wird der Lautsprecher oben in der Leiste kurz schwarz, aber nach ca. 2 Sekunden ist der wieder angegraut und Geräte gibt es in den Einstellungen keine! Hab mal meine AppleHDA angehangen + DSDT! Ich bin mit meinem Latein am Ende! Laut IOReg Explorer sollte die LayoutID 0C sein, also 12, aber ich hab auch schon mit anderen Layouts versucht und nope, nix! Vielleicht kann sich das jemand mal anschauen! Danke schon mal! Ach die Soundkarte ist die ALC663

Hey Rockey and everyone:

 

I am trying to reinstall HS and I got past all of the install points and Now I am to the desktop. Which of the posts has the dsdt.aml, the kexts, and the config.plist you all use? 

 

Did you all have any issues upgrading to 10.13.3 ? 

 

Any tips or hints or anything?

 

Do you all use web drivers for your cards or what?

 

Just wondering.

Still on the same kexts as for Sierra, but since my ssd is apfs formatted I've added apfs.efi in EFI/Clover/drivers64 folder. It's pretty much the same as Sierra, but I'm still on 10.13.2, and yeah for my GTX card I use webdrivers

I have a Z800 motherboard (BIOS 3.60) with a single Xeon X5690 and 48 GB RAM (another X5690 + 48 GB RAM will be installed as soon as I get the mounting kit.

I crammed it into a Fractal Design Define XL 2 case.
ACPI seems like a mess?

I would GREATLY appreciate some help in fixing this, I have very little knowledge as my last hack was basically install-and-go.

 

PCIe2 slot0: x4, Samsung 950 PRO nvme boot drive. (EFI/Clover is on a USB stick since the Z800 won't load the ahci option rom from the nvme drive) -working fine.

PCIe2 slot1: x16, ASUS ROG STRIX RX 580 TOP https://www.asus.com...AMING/overview/ -booting to black screen, bios and verbose boot is OK.
PCIe1 slot2: x4, empty
PCIe2 slot3: x8, empty
PCIe2 slot4: x16, Intel 520 DA1 10Gb card (I need to change Subsystem ID for drivers to load) -seems to be working, showing as Ethernet controller at HDMI-port (??)
PCI32 slot5: empty
PCIe2 slot6: x8, USB 3 card based on FL1100 -working fine

Hi, I have a Z400 workstation from work, with xeon W3520. This CPU is not supported by the AppleIntelInfo.kext (system reboots on load) or the script to generate DSDT.

 

I used normal clover based installation copying all EFI folder on USB, and worked almost perfectly first go :-). I started with El Capitan, upgraded to Sierra, and a few days ago even High Sierra, and everything is working. Nvidia GTX 1050 with latest web drivers, audio with voodoo I think, but I have to remove the AppleHDA.kext from /S/L/E. After reboot I have sound over the integrated ALC262. Did not try to get HDMI audio over the displayport, but I don't really care about that, as long as basic audio is working, it's fine for me. Sleep invoked from the mac menu doesn't do anything (blanks the screen, but fans keep spinning), but auto standby after 10 minutes does work :-).

 

Thanks! Tried to get macOS going on other machines I have, but no idea how to go about that. Without the DSDT.aml from first post it doesn't even boot the install USB.

 

Also have linux, so if you are interested to get some files from me, just let me know.

 

Update: went the AppleHDA route and that's also working now. :-D

 

Only thing missing is invoking sleep from Mac menu, but I can live with that

You don't need Web drivers with this gpu, it works oob without any bootflags. It works for me as I have the same card on my xw8600 workstation.

Yes

Thanks Rockey12!.

 

Reading in the thread I understood that it was no longer possible with HighSierra 10.13.2 / 10.13.3
 
Following your guide, will you confirm that it is still possible?

      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

      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
