Hi guys, I am in the process of upgrading my z800 from 10.11.6 to 10.13.6. I am modifying my config.plist to create my bootable USB drive. I am using Rockey12 files as reference in order to modify from this post:

Thank you Rockey.

 

I would like to know if possible if you guys could share with me a screengrab of the Clover installation screen as I would like to know what options exactly I need to check or uncheck to make the bootable USB drive.

 

Specs:

 

2x 6 cores @ 2.93

16GB RAM @ 1333

 

Thank you.

Greetings Rocky12,

 

Being here in and out for sometime and able to install 10.11 successfully with the help of a patched DSDT supplied by a genius here (forgot the name sorry), very happy to have my Z600 running with clover.(which is good enough for me)

 

Recently i check my Z600 hardware config and found out the onboard (Firewire LSI 1394A) was missing . The FW port was however, running over win7 and somehow it was missing over osx 10.11

 

In this case i suspected my DSDT file were somehow unable patched the onbaord LSI chips.

 

Neither i am a expert nor have knowledge over DSDT patching/checking. All i know is that this DSDT file is "specially patched" as a typical clover F4 DSDT file will always run into a KP during clover installation......

 

Seriously I need the on board 1394a port to be up and running again as me pcie/pci slots were already fully occuplied.

 

Therefore can you pls help me to check and patch (if possible) my DSDT file so that  i can able to had the firewire 1394a running again in the near future?

 

See attached file covering my DSDT file, config plist file, PCIlist, System Profile, IO reg file , Hardware status sereenshot for your reference.

Config Plist

IO Reg

PCI list

System Profile

Many thanks in advance

For macOS High Sierra Clover Files.zip

Audio AppleHDA+other 2 kext.zip

So I have my Z800 (mobo in a Fractal Design XL case) running pretty well except for built in sound.

I'm really no expert in these things as I don't fiddle with it much, I just use my computer.

I installed the "Audio AppleHDA+other 2 kext.zip" files in S/L/E of my boot drive but nothing happens (I have audio enabled in bios).

Do I need some Clover config or something in addition?

I'm not using DSDT.

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”

Noob here:

Will this still work for Mojave, so the same steps everywhere except Mojave instead of Sierra.

I'm on Bios 3.61, should I use 3.60 instead?

Can I use the same DSDT?

 

This is my system:

HP Z800  with BIOS version : 3.61

CPU: x2 6-core X5675 @ 3.06 GHz

RAM: 16 GB

GFX:  Palit Jetstream 670

SSD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 128GB (& 860 EVO 500GB for Windows 10 & 4 HDDs in Raid in the internal bays)

Monitor: Philips 2K (DP)

Here it is..
I guess it's a bit messy after all experimentation and the Clover config is probably unnecessarily crowded but it's working.
I removed some stuff to get under the 10MB limit but all the files in the CLOVER folder are there.
Thanks for being interested in helping!

Is there a tutorial or a list of the things i must do , something you can suggest, i find so many things on tutorial and its quite hard to know which one will work,

 

Edit: i Tried TransMac, failed usb making, Tried "The forbiden word :)" on Mojave Virtualbox, made bootable Usb with clover and app store Mojave and Legacy boot mode, Sata set to ASCHI(if i remember correctly) and Raid, i boot in to usb and it just skips to windows, removed all drives, left only usb,It says no bootable drive, Changed the boot order to usb first, skips it. Help, i want it for developing Laravel and Native script applications 

 

Thank in Advance,

For the USB key uses Boot Buddy.app, once finished install clover option ESP. And change the folder create with that one. I am not tested with the latest version. I'm still in beta because I'm not acceleration graph with my nvidia card. attention to apfs-64.efi it may have changed.

Hello!

 

I tried installing via comand line, i think i am misunderstanding the procces a bit, i mounted the Efi, than installed it, not sure what i did, i will follow your advice, 

I nstalled via command line and it installed fine, i think i messed up the Clover install procces,

 

So the steps are,

Install mojave on USB via Boot Buddy or via comand line,

(i install first Clover Bootloader with Clover Configurator and then mount EFI so i can add the kext files from your EFI folder you gave to download?(thanks by the way))

Install Clover via Clover Configurator with ESP option and than add the Kext files at Other folder , and 10.14 folder of the USB EFI folder i guess (after i spend 30 min trying to find them, found them)

Boot to usb, and it should work,

Will give it a try,

 

Thanks Again

Update: Thanks, i managed to boot to usb, did the install via the Terminal/ComandLine and it finished, installed Clover on the ESP, Bootloader/Install boot0ss in MBR (read that on another forum), unchecked the Uefi boot,

Installed fine, than copy paste the whole folder, IT WORKED.

 

I think it was skiping boot from usb because i was pressing F9 all the time, If i press it once it boots from usb, I tried another usb with the latest Clover version it booded to the EFI bootloader but it show a stop icon instead of the apple logo, i guess its because it doesnt have the kext files,

 

Another question is why the Macos system install is in French, dont mind it i can change it later,

 

I stumbled on another problem which was that i had the MBR partition on SSD number 2, mean while the Windows System was in SSD number 1, I tried to "Erase" the SSD number 2 partition to Journaled OS but it wants a GUID one, i dont get that option when i am installing the MacOS(in french), Do i need to remove the partition and than try to make a single partition and than format it to Journaled and GUID, Can that be done from windows to format the rest of the partition of the SSD number 2 into a GUID one, Dont want to risk my data on the SSD number 1.

 

My Mojave is the latest one i got from App Store 1 week ago,

 

Thank you Again

For the installation of Mac OS in my config.plist option Boot is in FR, you can change to EN for English.

For SSD in MBR, you can delete the partition under windows.

      I executed all my DSDT's and SSDTs with no errors 
      I can't patch the battery

      I need help
      I am attaching my ACPI folder

      Fully optimizing DSDT & SSDT for OS X Sierra POST INSTALL on a Dell345MT with a i7 - 920(first gen) 
       
      I know how this forum feels about 3rd party software, but that was just a crutch, I'm 100% vanilla now which is why I'm now posting for help because I eliminated the possibility having to do with 3rd party. Anyways, with that said I just have a couple things I want to be sure of.
       
      I used a n---bistro to get a App Store copy of Sierra, as I didn't know there were other ways of getting it now from a windows10 machine. anyways, I was able to build a vanilla usb. I couldn't figure the EFI out on my vanilla Sierra-usb, but the EFI on the usb-ni---bistro I had would boot my pre-install and post-install. so I was able to install Sierra. After a few days of figuring out how to remake a EFI and config, I broke my EFI.
      So back to my windows10 SSD and I found BootDiskUtility, and that made a EFI usb with the newest version of clover(r4895). So then swapped SSDs back to my OS X, plugged in the BDU-usb, after trial and error I got back into my Sierra. Now with the newest version of clover and no traces of ni---bistro anymore. Then copied the BDU-usb to my SSD EFI and was able to boot without a usb again!! YAY.
       
      Then starting working on fixing my web drivers for my gtx 1050 2gb. Installed the os update so i'm at 10.12.6, pulled my hair out figuring out the web drivers, eventually got them installed and the cuda fixed.
       
      Now all 3 of my screens work, yet windows can't sit 'between' screens, I just simply haven't looked for that fix yet as I want the sys itself running like a top first.
      My screen saver works, I don't get stuck in screensaver, I did once before, I believe lilu.kext and whatevergreen.kext fixed that.
      Now with all that I felt it was time to give my config.plist a diet cos it was bloated, I generated a config copied the clover settings check for check instead of coping text cos I'm trying to shrink it.
      Config.plist boots my system with DSDT-1FE7B5D7
       
      So after the above, This is now where I'm stuck
       a 100% correct DSDT and SSDT, from my understanding with a patched DSDT I wouldn't need any options selected in clover on the ACPI page?
       
      So with the patching part that I think I understand how to do it now, but when I extract with F4 every file has RSDT in front of it, I have one that says RSDP.aml and RSDT.aml
      so would I just erase the RSDT from the beginning of each file then go from their, which would then leave me with a DSDT.aml and 17 SSDTs?
      I know I have to decompile and patch them, but with my file names[DSDT table extract] not matching tutorials online I'm having a difficult time understanding which files I need.
      IS the RDST-DSDT.aml my DSDT? it is the biggest file.
      which ones that have SSDT in the filename is the SSDT(s) I need to patch?
       
      also how do I know if everything is patched correctly? like if my CPU is fully working and not just sorta working that way when I start running software like photoshop, unity, 10 chrome tabs, my hackintosh doesn't crash
       
      System details
      i7 920 (first gen) very similar to nehelam
      GeForce 1050 2Gb (3 monitors connected all work, one acer on HD connection, two HP s2031 on HD, using adapters to change all ports on GPU card to HD for screens)
          display port, HDMI, and HD
      4x 1Gg + 2x 8Gb RAM running at 1066 after injecting smbios with ram info macOS sees all my ram correctly
      Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500Gb
       
      Thanks to anyone that can help me out, I've been working on my system for about two weeks and this is basically the wall I finally can't seem to figure out how to pass
      I can post another info also if it helps

      Ciao ragazzi ho un problema strano... 
      Praticamente quando avvio il pc usando il dsdt, appena connetto la tavoletta grafica huion h640p, il pc si riavvia... 
      Se invece tolgo il dsdt, funziona tutto perfettamente...
