A few days ago I faced a problem - installed ocquirks and it somehow broke my prelinked kernel. System won't boot then, and I spent more than a day restoring from the netatalk backup to copy working prelinked kernel directory from the backup to the s/l
So, my question is - how to relink prelinked kernel without that? I found boot args -f UseKernelCache=No but it didn't work. I was able to boot to the recovery, if that can help.
I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.
I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?
I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.
Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it) Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version? If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?
I decided to extract the immutablekernel for Catalina 10.15.3.
I had to add a FAT header but it extracts just fine.
Thanks to this we have the kernel and kexts for the immutablekernel.
The info dictionary and lists are also included.
Needs further study if it contains extras compared to the prelinkedkernel.
Maybe we can find out what those .im4m files (for example immutablekernel.x589iclydev.im4m) are thanks to this.
My hardware: MSI x399 Meg Creation 2990WX 64GB ram @2933Mhz Radeon 7 Sata: Samsung 130GB SSD M.2: Samsung 970 Pro 1TB(latest firmware)
Using OpenCore 0.5.6 (NVMeFix NVMeDxe installed) I have successful installed OSX catalina onto my 130GB. It works flawlessly.
and then I figure I should do it on my M.2 drive. It installs flawlessly, at the last stage of installation, it naturally restart and thats it. I can not boot into this newly installed OS on the M.2 drive. it keeps throwing: "error loading kernel cache 0x1"
I have tried deleting the prelinkedkernel from recovery partition. Tried rebuilding cache(I have not installed any kext into L/E).
All this time, I can use the same boot USB to boot into catalina on my sata 130Gb SSD working just fine.
attached is my EFI folder. I have tried all the suggested SMBios iMacPro1,1 MacPro6,1 MacPro7,1
is this ruled out that samsung 970Pro doesnt work?
New here, I used to do macs but mainly PCs now. So please excuse my ignorance. Mac stores are closed in Arizona, My friend has a circa 2015 Macbook Pro. On startup, the line goes about halfway and then goes to a spinning icon that goes on and off. I did a disk repair and permissions , but it still does the same. So I tried to reload the OS, it says not found, apparently you cannot download Yosemite anymore. So, the rest of my machines are windows. Where do I get Yosemite and how can I build it on a Windows machine that I can have the Mac start up. Help please.
