put All The Kexts into EFI/CLOVER directory for macOS 10.13.2 in 10.13.2directory. Have fun!

How to install MacOS Sierra 10.12.3 on HP Z620 Workstation.

download macOS Sierra Installer (go to App Store to download).

create a USB Installer.

 to create a bootable USB. However, we have to use kexts from CustoMac Essential package and put these kexts to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ directory (mount your EFI partition first!)

 

Here the Tricks

Note: I put my /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER directory and all kexts we need in the repo.

 

  • Install the lastest CLOVER (e.g., v2k4)
  • We have to use flag npci=0x2000 all the time. (I also use dart=1)
  • Z620 crashes randomly when booting, we can fix that with flag cpus=1. However, this makes our PC slow (only 1 CPU!!), therefore, we fix this problem by installing VoodooTSCSync.kext at /System/Library/Extensions . Remember to fix permission. E.g.
    chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/* && chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/* && kextcache -system-caches.
  • We got problem with USB ports (therefore, cannot install from USB). We fix it by:
    • First, Use Clover Configurator V4.39.1 app to mount EFI and patch ACPI (Look at "List of Patches" in Acpi menu and apply All Of Them)
    • Install USBInjectAll.kext to inject all USB ports!
  • HP Z620 crashes with many versions of FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, so please use those

 Unfortunately I can not get to the installer of 10.13.3

Clover 4415

HP Z620 Bios 3.91

CPU E5-2680

Bios settings as a guide

drivers64 and kext (other and 10.13 folder) with the kext you gave me.

I tried to boot with -v npci=0x2000 and debug=0x100 to try to understand what the problem is.

 

 

 

Tips?

 

I think i need this patch

I just followed some Rehabman guides to install MaciASL, Patchmatic etc.

 

I have tried Clover DSDT patch...

 

 

I'm trying but I do not have enough knowledge to succeed

 

 

I am reading the file DSTD.dsl and looking for the values ​​that modify in the guide (SCK0, CPUSCK0) but I can not find them with MaciASL, probably the extracted data are not similar.

 

 

sorry my friend  but you didn't patch your dsdt how can you expect to install any thing   

your clover ACPI patched folder is empty there is no dsdt or any ssdt

I am wondering if anyone has an HP Z420 with Native sound working?

 

I have moved up from a z400 with native audio working with patched DSDT + Patched Apple HDA and Codeccommander. 

Since both the z400 and Z420 both use realtek ALC262, I used the same DSDT/HDEF patch on my patched Z420 DSDT + Clover Inject Layout 28 + AppleALC 1.2.3 without success. 

Audio is of course working with VoodooHDA but I can not get Native Audio working.

Everything else working great include native power + speed stepping, LAN, and USB2 ports(not 3).

 

 

Current config: HP Z420, QuadCore Xeon E5-1620, Nvidia Quadro K2000, 48gb Ram, 256 Samsung SSD, Clover Bootloader.

Yes, I was using AppleALC + LILU + I tried to patch my DSDT using previous Z400 HDEF patch but wasn't working for me. MaLd0n was able to correctly add DSDT HDEF patch and I now have native sound on my Z420.

Thanks.

Radeon Pro WX 7100  is the best choice

Here's the detailed post. It's kind of long because this happened over the course of a few days of debugging/tinkering.

I'm using:

  • Clover v2.4k r4380
  • Kexts:
    • AppleALC
    • FakeSMC
    • Lilu
    • RealtekRTL8111
    • USBInjectAll
    • WhateverGreen
    • patched AMD kexts (details below)
  • Boot Options:
    • dart=0
    • Inject ATI=False

Story:

I was having a ton of problems with High Sierra. Initially, I tried to do an in-place update from Sierra and that didn't work, I'm not sure what exactly happened. I decided to do a clean High Sierra install.

 

I was able to get through the installation process up to where you're prompted for username, etc. I saw the Apple logo and the loading bar get about half way, then a flash on the screen, then the screen turned black, the backlight on the screen was still and and I didn't get any "no signal" messages so it seemed like it booted up fine, just no video. I tried reinstalling a few times to see if it was something that went wrong during install and I kept getting the same results.

 

Eventually, I tried booting into safe mode (-x) and was then able to complete the installation. After the installation completed, everytime I tried booting normally into the OS it would go to the same black screen that occurred during installation. Booting into safe mode, however, seemed to work fine but without video acceleration.

 

First, I attempted to use the framebuffer patching guide. I gave up on it because I was never able to find a framebuffer in the AMD9500Controller.kext that had the same number of ports (4 display ports) as the WX 7100.

 

I was able to get this video card to work previously in Sierra by patching some of the kexts with the WX 7100's device id. I wasn't sure which kexts to add the device id to in High Sierra.

 

In safe mode, I dumped the currently loaded kexts and made note of all the AMD kexts that were loaded (kextstat -l | grep AMD). Here is a list of the loaded kexts:

 

96    2 0xffffff7f817b1000 0x1f8000   0x1f8000   com.apple.kext.AMDSupport (1.6.0) 441E3318-2B41-3EC8-95CA-7A098B2801F5 <94 93 11 10 7 5 4 3 1>
104    0 0xffffff7f819a9000 0x64000    0x64000    com.apple.kext.AMD9500Controller (1.6.0) 74FE706C-076A-3302-9D0D-12846730C210 <96 94 93 11 10 5 4 3 1>
112    0 0xffffff7f83a29000 0x28000    0x28000    com.apple.kext.AMDFramebuffer (1.6.0) 74616066-E134-31AD-AEE8-40BB1420567B <96 93 11 10 7 5 4 3 1>

 

I also enabled remote login while in safe mode so that I could ssh into the machine. I booted normally into the machine and was met with another black screen. From another computer, I ssh'ed into the machine and performed the same kextstat -l | grep AMD to see which kexts had loaded. Here is the output:

 

106    2 0xffffff7f82603000 0x1db000   0x1db000   com.apple.kext.AMDSupport (1.6.0) 441E3318-2B41-3EC8-95CA-7A098B2801F5 <105 99 12 11 7 5 4 3 1>
112    0 0xffffff7f82834000 0x64000    0x64000    com.apple.kext.AMD9500Controller (1.6.0) 74FE706C-076A-3302-9D0D-12846730C210 <106 105 99 12 11 5 4 3 1>
134    0 0xffffff7f82c55000 0x84f000   0x84f000   com.apple.kext.AMDRadeonX4250 (1.6.0) BE3FD082-A557-3556-B357-EDD2DFC63E7A <133 124 99 12 7 5 4 3 1>
137    0 0xffffff7f834b2000 0x28000    0x28000    com.apple.kext.AMDFramebuffer (1.6.0) 74616066-E134-31AD-AEE8-40BB1420567B <106 99 12 11 7 5 4 3 1>

 

The first thing I did was try removing the AMDRadeonX4250.kext, the only different kext that was loaded during normal mode versus safe mode. After removing this, the computer could boot in normal mode with video output but still without video acceleration.

 

After this, I remembered that the WX 7100 is very similar to the RX 480/580 (device id 0x67DF1002). So, I found every instance of 0x67DF1002 that appeared in the AMD kexts (grep -R 0x67DF1002 /System/Library/Extensions/AMD*). Here's a list of the kexts that contain the RX 480/580 device id:

 

/System/Library/Extensions/AMD9500Controller.kext/Contents/Info.plist
/System/Library/Extensions/AMD9520Controller.kext/Contents/Info.plist
/System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4000.kext/Contents/Info.plist
/System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4000HWServices.kext/Contents/Info.plist
/System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4200.kext/Contents/Info.plist
/System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4250.kext/Contents/Info.plist

 

So, I editted each of these kexts to include 0x67C41002. Rebuilt the kext cache (sudo kextcache -i /). Then, booted up in normal mode and was greeted with full video acceleration.

 

This probably could have been accomplished by spoofing the RX 480/580 device id, but I learned a lot through this process and thought I'd share my experience with all of you.

Hello hackintoshers. I know this thread is getting long and old, but I am about to try my first hackintosh. Has anyone installed MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 with Clover on a HP Z440 workstation (Xeon E5-1620 v4, Intel C612 chipset, Realtek HD ALC221 audio)? I am using a Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB. Windows 10 Pro is running now.

What kexts do I need? From countless threads and tutorials I have come up with this list:

AppleALC.kext

AppleIntelE1000e.kext

AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext

CoreDisplayFixup.kext

EFICheckDisabler.kext

FakeSMC.kext

IntelGraphicsFixup.kext

Lilu.kext

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

RealtekRTL8111.kext

Shiki.kext

USBInjectAll.kext

VoodooHDA.kext

VoodooPS2Controller.kext

WhateverGreen.kext

XHCI-x99-injector.kext

 

Others I have seen:

XHCI-x99-injector.kext

AHCIPortInjector_v1.0.0.kext

IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector_v1.0.0.kext

NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext

 

But I think some of these may be for laptops.

Is it a problem to install unnecessary kexts? Or the more, the merrier? Do I need to edit a DSDT? Or does Clover Configurator or 'that beasty thing' do this for me?

 

When I get it running, can I upgrade to High Sierra 10.13.4 from the App Store without a care, or does some of the above need to change? Would I be better off creating my USB installer for High Sierra to begin with?

What problems should I expect?

Can someone help me with installing high sierra on a HP Workstation Z640. I have never done this before so I'm really confused about what needs to happen. I created a bootable usb installer. I boot up to the "Clover Boot Manager" and when I click "install macOS high sierra" the apple logo comes up but that's it; no loading bar and it's just stuck there. the screen is also offset so the apple logo is closer to the bottom right of the screen(I don't know if that's important). when I use verbose mode setting it gives me this

 

. I take it that means barely anything has happened.

 

I also decided to try the bootable usb on my laptop( ASUS G750jx - nvidia gtx 770M - intel corei7 4700HQ). In this case it doesn't even show the apple logo. It simply shows the computers default startup logo( Replublic Of Gamers Logo) but curiously also offsets the screen when its showing this logo. it then proceeds to startup up to my normal windows log in screen.

 

  I however did not use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] installer to make the bootable disk I used the os terminal with the command by following this guide http://hackintosher.com/guides/make-macos-flash-drive-installer/

 

I am following this guide https://hackintosher.com/guides/macos-high-sierra-hackintosh-install-clover-walkthrough/ and now I'm stuck in that apple logo.

Hi 

I would like to ask how I can change slot of my GPU from ethernet to pci

Thanks A lot

 

R U comfortable modifying your DSDT directly ?

      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.

      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!
