IF YOU WANT A RAW COPY (THAT INCLUDES ACTUAL FORMATTING) OF THIS UNFINISHED GUIDE, ASK ME THROUGH PRIVATE MESSAGE, THEN MODIFY IT AND SEND IT BACK TO ME THROUGH PRIVATE MESSAGE, IT'LL BE A PLEASURE TO UPDATE IT, BUT I'M NOT ACTIVE HERE ANYMORE -- ALSO, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO HAVE THIS THREAD'S OWNERSHIP CHANGED AND WANT TO OWN IT, LET ME KNOW HOW TO PROCEED AS I DO NOT WISH TO KEEP IT FOR ME, THANKS!

Hi,

 

I'm starting this new topic in the hope to, progessively, create a guide for a vanilla (as much as possible) OS X Installation on Z400/Z600/Z800 Workstations. I invite you to participate in the comments so that this topic becomes an easy-to-follow guide. The idea of doing this emerged from information exchanged with other members (proteinshake, MacPeet, zhangtemplar, MacUser2525, nitelava & apav) in topic titled "Fix my HP! Just a few random DSDT-edits to improve your HacMac experience." originally created by proteinshake.

 

Main goals of this guide

  • Explain manual procedures;
  • Avoid "magical" utilities, but don't ignore them (they can sometimes be time/life savers);
  • Make you become independent & aware of the inner mechanics of creating a functional Hackintosh, so that you can repeat & adapt those procedures for future hackintosh projects.

 

*** AS THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS TOPIC, I WILL NEED SOME HELP TO GATHER ACCURATE INFORMATION ***

 

 

HELP NEEDED, PLEASE READ THIS SECTION, THANKS!

 

As I only own a Z400 Workstation, I'd need you (those who own Z600 and Z800 Workstations) to send me your lspci output. To do so, you have 2 options:

  1. Boot with a Linux LiveCD (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post);
  2. If you already have an OSX version installed, you'll need to install lspci (see the Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links section at the bottom of this post).

Type the following command :

lspci -nnvv >~/Desktop/lspci-nnvv_output.txt

If you are using Linux, please also type this command (before creating the following, make sure you updated your BIOS to v03.57) :

sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml

OR:

sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt >~/Desktop/DSDT.aml

(whichever works for you)

 

Copy those files to a USB flash drive, send them to yourself by email or whatever other method you want. Then, reply to this topic mentionning which workstation you have, and attach the file(s) created above.

 

 

ALSO, if you got Clover to boot your Z400 / Z600 / Z800 Worktation, PLEASE send us your config.plist so that we can have a starting point. I'm trying to switch from Chameleon to Clover, but I'm still unable to fix a Kernel Panic I have; I will report it with a screenshot soon in the comments, maybe some of you might know why I get it.

 

 

Requirements

  1. Another Mac or Hackintosh machine;
  2. 8GB+ USB flash drive;
  3. BIOS updated to latest version (v03.57, 2013-09-20 release, found HERE);
    1. This is mandatory for 2 reasons :
      1. patched DSDT files included in this guide will not work (properly) if you use a different BIOS version;
      2. that latest BIOS version fixes possible erratic behaviours with Xeon 3600 & 5600 CPU series.
  4. Z400/Z600/Z800 specific files (see Z400/Z600/Z800 specific information sections further below).

 

BIOS setup instructions (eventually, there will be screenshots)

  1. You must set your hard drive controller to AHCI+RAID mode, else you won't be able to use your SATA devices.
  2. ...

 

Generic instructions (for all downloads/credits, see Tools/Utilities/kexts or other useful links & All attached files sections at the bottom of this post)

  1. Get a copy of Yosemite Installer from the AppStore;
  2. Create a Yosemite boot DVD or USB (USB recommended);
    1. Partition & format the USB Flash Drive :
      1. Put your USB Flash Drive in a USB port;
      2. Open Disk Utility;
      3. Select your USB Flash Drive disk in the left pane;
      4. Click on the "Partition" tab in the right pane;
      5. Change "Partition Scheme" to 1;
      6. Click on "Options" at the bottom;
      7. Make sur you select GUID (first one) and click on OK;
      8. Give it a name, let's say Yosemite-Installer for the sake of this guide;
      9. Change "Format" to "Extended Mac OS (journaled)" (AFTER THIS STEP, YOU'LL ERASE YOUR USB Flash Drive, so make a backup first if you have important data on it!);
      10. Click on "Apply"; 
    2. Create a USB Flash Drive with Yosemite Installer on it;
      1. Open Terminal;
      2. Copy/Paste the following command (make sure to verify the path names as they might differ slightly on your setup) - it will ask for your user password to elevate the command at root permission level :
        sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/YosemiteInstaller --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction
        
      3. Wait until it's completed (takes about 20 minutes, depending on your setup and USB speed);
      4.  
    3.  
  3. Into your volume's /System/Library/Extensions folder, copy the following kernel extensions (kext) :
    1. AHCIPortInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext.zip & IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext.zip - Those extensions make OS X detect your SATA controller. You'll get the "Waiting for root device..." message if you don't install those. (Couldn't yet find official page nor original thread for those, please let me know if you found it - credits seem to go to Micky1979);
    2. FakeSMC_v6.16.1372_netkas.kext.zip - emulates Apple's SMC chip found on Apple motherboards;
    3. NullCPUPowerManagement_v1.0.0d2_tgwbd.kext.zip - prevents kernel panic of genuine Apple Power Management;
    4. (optional for the install disk, this is to get sound working) VoodooHDA_v2.87.kext.zip (autumnrain, slice2009) - The file attached here is version 2.87 with a tweaked Info.plist to fix noise & volume issues for our workstations. According to my tests, HDADisabler kext is not needed (probably because original unpatched AppleHDA won't detect our Realtek ALC262 chipset).
  4. Now, let's rebuild that target volume's kernel cache with the following command :
    1. kextcache -f -update-volume /Volumes/YosemiteInstall
      
  5. Create the Extra folder on your Yosemite's install disk :
    1. mkdir -p /Volumes/YosemiteInstaller/Extra
  6. Install a bootloader
    1. Chameleon
      1. ...
    2. Clover
      1. ...
  7. ...

Hi chateau,

 

This topic is great!  Thank you for your contribution.

 

Edit: Tried reinstalling Yosemite now working 100% with Nvidia Quadro 2000 and GraphicsEnabler. I'm not sure what the issue was.

 

 

Unfortunately I am not able to get my Quadro 2000 video card working correctly is Yosemite and I had to revert back to Mavericks which is working 100%. Is see

you have a GTX Quadro 580.  Is anyone running a Quadro 2000 in Yosemite?  I tried multiple suggestions including CUDA drivers, Nvidia Web drivers, and 

PCIRootUID=0 without success.  I'm open to suggestions, otherwise I will have to stay on Mavericks.

 -

I'm Curious as to what others Geekbench scores are as well.  I was a little dissapointed - 4 cores @ 2.66MHZ = 7300 in 32 bit mode.

 

Chateau, I do not have permission to download your attached files at the bottom of your post.

 

Thanks again

Seems reasonable on the Geekbench I get a rock solid 16500 anytime I run it with 8x2.66 64bit which is always that few extra percent higher than 32. For the Quadro had a 1700 in mine for few days all that was needed was GraphicsEnabler=yes but that is Mavericks no clue on Yosemite I will never be using anything newer can't stand the look, tried for few days just cannot build a bridge and get over it.

Hi

 

I have an Z400 6 ram slot one

 

From factory, it come with W3565, but I'm change it for an X5679

Put it  24gb Ram 1333 and a Radeon HD6870

 

I use this equipment for live video produccion

 

At first, I did install 10.8.5, with a couple of kexts, it works solid as a rock, Radeon HD6870 4 screens, wifi with an Dlink DWA 110 (Ralink RT73 driver) , Bluetooth with a Dlink DBT 122 (OOB)

Audio ALC262 with VoodooHDA.kext, AppleHDADisabler.kext and VoodooHDA 2.8.5

 

Here my extra for 10.8.5

 

Extra.zip

 

Now, I'm on 10.10.4, with an insanely not supported tool (the LegacyAppleAHCIPortIntelICHx.kext is very import, put it on inside of the installer and the Yosemite)

 

No DSDT

All is working fine, HD6870 is showing as HD68xx, but still having 4 outputs OOB

Wifi, with the same 10.8.5 driver

BT OOB

Audio with the same 10.8.5 drivers and VoodooHDA 2.8.7

I'm not sure what you mean

 

I have a Radeon HD6870 (same as you, I guess) and I'm able to run 4 full HD professional cameras with a Blackmagic PCI capture cards, without issues at all.

At same time, I'm able to run 4 HD monitors.

Hi guys,

 

Please, take a look at the actual state of my guide (don't forget to Follow this thread!). If you can provide some help (I'm quite specific already at the beginning of the guide, written in red), it would help me a lot. Also, don't hesitate to ask questions, as it helps me to make it well structured.

 

As mentionned in that red section of my guide, I'm having issues migrating from Chameleon to Clover (I've created a duplicate installation so that I can provide Clover instructions as well as Chameleon one).

 

For now, here's my config.plist.zip (be aware that I've set it up for a W3690 CPU, so before using it yourself, please change CPU values to yours), but I'm getting a kernel panic with this message :

 

"Unable to find driver for this platform"

 

See this picture (sorry, cell camera sucks) : post-249762-0-98693400-1436814610_thumb.jpg

 

If you have any clues or advices as to how to avoid that KP, please let me/us know.

 

Thanks,

hi chatdeau

I never had to use a patched AppleACPIPlatform.kext as I've always installed OS X the vanilla way (never wanted to use "magical" installers), so it's already the original.

 

Normally, I shouldn't have to use a patched kernel neither, as I didn't have to patch it when using Chameleon.

 

I've just received some advices. Will try those and report if there's anything successful.

I have a old 2006 core 2 duo imac, with snow leopard..

 

A few months ago, I was doing some maintenance inside it, and I was curious and put the imac hard drive inside of the Z400, and believe it or not, boot fine!

 

The z400 main harddrive has chameleon

hi chateau can u tell us ar u trying to install El capitan or yosemite

 

According to the title of this thread, it's Yosemite ;-)

 

I'll first complete this guide for Yosemite. Once I'm satisfied with it, I'll probably try pretty much the same with El Captain (and most probably create another guide).

Good news guys,

 

I finally managed to boot Yosemite using Clover. It's really faster than with Chameleon. Thanks to Rockey12, I've got some inspiration for my new config.plist :)

 

But hold on, because I pretty much have to redo all relevant DSDT patches manually, as my former dsdt.aml won't work with Clover.

 

-chatdeau

 

 

EDIT : @Rockey12 - Note that I did not use any of your modified kext, so you should be able to boot as well with original ones.

-apav

 

It's a bit early to mention all the benefits in the specific case of Z400, but for now I can say the boot time is reduced quite a lot.

 

I've just tried a DSDT file I just patched tho, but I get a black screen. I'm wondering if there's anything wrong with my patches or if it has something to do with my version of iasl to recompile it.

 

Investigating ...

I might try that eventually, but as clover works fine without my former dsdt.aml with no issue graphics, I don't think it's pertinent to do so now.

 

Could you tell me what version of clover you are using please? the version I have boots fine, but won't have USB working at all, whatever settings I use (with/without patches/injection/custom dsdt.aml).

 

Thanks,

yes it is as 68xx but u can patch ur AMD6000Controller.kext  

 

 

I have a weird problem

 

All works fine form me, I use 4 monitors outputs:

 

1 dp (active adaptor to DVI)

1 dp (active adaptor to DVI)

1 HDMI

1 DVI (pasive adaptor do HDMI)

 

With the HDMI and DVI (pasive adaptor do HDMI), the monitors randomly gets darker..

 

I mean, no black at all, but get about 30% of brightness

 

If I turn the GraphicsEnabler=yes, I lost monitor outputs..

(EDIT: turned GraphicsEnabler=yes, it is recognized as HD6870, no monitor outputs lost, but same issue)

 

Any clue?

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi

      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)

      I had a working Mojave installation on my HP Z400 with clover and from a VMware image.  (Because i had a Nvidia 8800GT with no Metal support.) I found a cheap AMD RX 570 card on the local market.
      So i did a reinstall with a clean Mojave version from de App Store. Before the new card everything worked fijne exept the video card.
      (My Englisch is not great sorry!)
       
      The hardware:
      HP Z400 Motherboard in standard ATX case.  (Some powercable and other hacks needed.) Xeon W3520 (4 cores  2,67Ghz) 6x 2GB DDR3 non ECC Sapphire Radeon RX 570 4G Nitro+ SATA Harddisk BIOS version 03.61 (last)  
      BIOS Settings:
      File\Default Setup
      Restore Factory Settings as Default (You may get some new options) Apply Defaults and Exit (Reboot) Storage\Storage Options
      Legacy Diskette - Write Disable Sata Emulation - RAID+AHCI Security\Device Security
      legacy Diskette - Device hidden Embedded Security - Device Device hidden Power\Hardware Power Management
      Everyting - Enable Advanced\Processors
      Hyper-Threading – Enable  
      Install disk:
      Download the complete Mojeva Install App from de Appstor Make a install USB stick use the Terminal app and command
      “sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB -- /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app”
      Where USB is te name of the USB stick Install Clover v2.4k r4844
      Change Install Location and choose  “Install macOS Mojave”
      Customize Select:
      Install clover in the ESP Boot Sectors\Install boot0af in MBR Clover for Bios(legacy) booting\ Clover EFI 64-Bits SATA BIOS Drivers, 64 Bit\ApfsDriverLoader-64     (For Apfs in Clover) Everything else unchanged Install
      Open Clover Configurator
      And open config.plist from the EFI on the USB stick
      Select:
      Boot\Arguments   dart=0 Graphics - RadeonDeInit Kernel and Kext Patches   DellSMBIOSPatch SMBIOS Choose Mac Pro 5.1 Save
       
      Kexts:
      And place those kexts in Clover\kexts\Other (Zie Attachments)
      FakeSMC.kext (Mandatory) AHCIPortInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext (SATA) IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector_v1.0.0_Micky1979.kext (Fix SATA) NullCPUPowerManagement_v1.0.0d2_tgwbd.kext (Support CPU) VoodooHDA_v2.87.kext (Sound)
      And install disk is ready
      .
      My install was Mojave 10.14.2 and with succes updated to 10.14.3
       
      Everything is working great de only problem i have found is Mojave sees 7 memory slots and there are 6 slots in the system.
      When i define te memory slots in Clover the problem is solved see the image.

      Hi
       
      I am trying to create a clean DSDT for my new hackintosh.  It is all working very well and I hope this will make things even better.
      I have a Gigabyte Z390 AORUS MASTER,
      I9-9900K
      32 gb Ram
      gigabyte vega 64 OC
       
      I extracted the DSDT and SSDT files using F4 in Clover.  I have supplied the resulting DSDT below.  THese are the four errors I get when trying to compile in MACIasl.  ALso I am using ACPI 5.1 in maciasl.
       
      12891, 6126, syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_NAMESEG, expecting '('
      12900, 6126, syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_CASE
      12904, 6126, syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_NAMESEG, expecting '('
      12913, 6126, syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_CASE, expecting $end and premature End-Of-File
       
      I am newbie to hackintosh so am learning as much as I can as i go.  I am not a programmer so the syntax errors I am not sure what to do with yet.  Any assistance would be appreciated.
       
      Thanks
