HP Z400/Z600/Z800 Workstations OS X 10.10.x/10.11.x Installation

HP Z400 is quite similar to Mac Pro 5.1 (X58 - ICH10 chipset) and a Xeon cpu Nehalem or Gulftown 32nm. iMac 13.2 is a Core i5 and it's totally different motherboard, I'll give it a try but since I started to hack I always

heard we have to choose the Mac model closer to our hardware in Smbios. Did you notice some relevant difference(s) between Mac Pro 5.1 and iMac 13.2 on your Z400?

Mac Pro 5,1 did not work for me. I have an Xeon W3565 which is quad core 3.2 ghz as is the Imac 13.2  with an Intel i5 3470. Speedstepping is working.

To use patch HDA or any system kext you need to RW the disk first

Tyoe this two command

sudo mount -uw

Follow by ENTER

killall Finder

Follow by ENTER

 

Now you have access to modifying system kext

@Rockey12

layoutID and Platforms in the AppleALC thread are not enough.
PinConfig is missing.
Post your patched AppleHDA here! I then create your codec in AppleALC.

I have your data built in AppleALC 1: 1 for layoutID 15 (0F)

 

AppleALC only works with native AppleHDA, not with patched AppleHDA !!!

 

try this:

trial1_alc663_layoutID_15.zip


Lilu + AppleALC to Clover/kexts/other/

 

Inject variant DSDT / HDEF:

...
"alc-layout-id"
Buffer (0x04)
{
     0x0F, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
},
"layout-id"
Buffer (0x04)
{
    0x07, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
},
...

 

or Inject Variant Clover:
Audio Inject -> 15
Set FixHDA
and / or try boot flag alcid=15

 

For Catalina-Beta boot flag -lilubetaall -alcbeta

Hi guys,

 

I have a HP Z400 with a Nvidia NVS300. It works perfectly with Sierra 10.12.6

 

Now I have bought a second monitor, but macOS does not recognize the second screen. I have installed the Nvidia Web Drivers-378.05.05.25f15 (I choose the NvidiaWeb option in Clover Configurator), but the problem continues...

 

Any suggestions?

 

P.D: I attached my config.plist and DSDT files. Windows 7 detects the two monitors without problems.

config.plist

DSDT.aml

Finally, I bought a new graphic card. That is it Gigabyte GV-RX580https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B071Y7XJY4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

But when I tried to used it, the screen turns black when the login screen had to appear.

 

Have I change something in my config.plist file?

 

Thank you so much for your help!

I have 5 hard drives including two with Mojave. I have Win10 on one drive. I dual boot. Every install since High Sierra has been problem free. I only have to install an older kext to get my WiFi to work. Even power stepping works. I do not use NullCPU

      **********************************************************************************
      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
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi.  A possible solution is here, but I am NOT offering any support for this.

      Hello everybody
      After 3 months of reading , troubleshooting , and trying different OS versions which all failed on just getting a bootable USB installer , I finally gave up and decided to ask for help , I would appreciated any advice or help you can give me .
      HP Laptop 15 da-nxxx , with a built-in battery
      CPU : i7-7500U
      GPU : HD 620 ,MX 130 " disabled with -wegnoegpu "

      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
