El Capitan on GA-Z170X-Gaming 5

790 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I've been banging my head against this for the last week....

 

Okay so i was pumped to have bought:

 

Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 5

64 GB Corsair Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400 MHz 

i7 6700K Skylake

2 x r9 280x's Sapphire 3 GB

480 GB SSD

128 GB SSD

4 TB HDD

1 TB HD

 

All 4 Monitors work on the R9 280x's (2 4k and 2 1080p)

 

 I've installed OS X 10.11.4 and cant get:

 

- Ethernet (It shows up in System Report > Ethernet Cards but not in System Preference > Options)

- Sound (Even Voodoo is telling me my OS X version is incompatible with 2.8.8)

- Sleep (Seems like everyone but me has this working)

- Inject ATI (When i Inject ATI in Clover, it picks up on the R9 280Xs but only renders the 1080p screens, 4K doesn't work, unless i unplug one of the 1080p monitors)

 

 

I've done all the BIOS requirements, as in the beginning of this thread, installed fresh copies and still nothing....Is this an issue that is contained specifically to 10.11.4??

 

Please Help  :wallbash:

Hi there.

 

Use the following kext and place them under EFI partition in the following path: EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/10.11

 

VoodooHDA 2.8.8 v3 must work unless you forgot to set these flags in your config.plist wrong make sure you set the following flags under boot sections: kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0

 

Sleep doesn't work on my computer either and I have no 4K displays so I don't know how to fix them.

 

Cheers

Ethernet worked, thanks so much!!

You are lucky then, or i'm unlucky.

Luckily i could mount the drive in windows, currently copying everything from the disk before the reinstall (why oh why didnt i do a timemachine backup)

 

EDIT: Think i found the issue, had intel virtulization IO active in the bios for some reason. This is not recommended, all my hfs+ disks have to be reformatted as they can't be repaired by the disk utility.

AMD R9 should be working just fine but there might be some hiccups with sleep or getting it to work with multi displays which you can find tons of posts about how to getting it to work.

I use an AMD Radeon HD 7790 with two displays and it's working just fine.

But if you are looking for a better Graphics Adapter that's another story.

Thanks Cyberdevs.

 

I need multimonitor support. I also want to dual boot hackintosh and windows(windows for gaming) so a amd 7790 does not quite fit for gaming. So i want to buy the right videocard that's proven to work (without to many tweaking/patching)

 

So any has recommendations? let my know;) thanks

You're welcome.

 

I know Radeon HD 7790 is an old vga and not good for gaming I just mentioned that because it works fine with multiple displays and as you can see on the first page of this topic you need to add some extra information in order to get the multi displays to work. Just to be on the safe side you might find nVidia 9 series graphic adapters (GTX 960, 970, 980) more suitable for you because they are easier to setup and the best choice in AMD family are AMD R9 390 and 395 which apple uses in the new iMacs.

Updated to OS X 10.11.5 through the MAS. Everything works, though my Hackintosh did freeze a couple of times in the last one hour.

Did you have to do anything besides update? Any kext mods etc..?

 

I'm actually looking at starting from scratch. New dsdt, ssdt, new kexts, new clover configuration as all I have now is a combination of everything in this thread and some is not needed anymore and it's a tad confusion. So maybe with 10.11.5 I can redo my whole install with fewer patches and kexts and have a more vanilla system.

Just a couple of questions, do you use VoodooTSCSync for i5-6600K? What C states have you enabled for the same processor? i'm asking these because i have a strange problem... i put my hack to sleep and sometimes (not always) when i press key to wake up its doing restart but not a normal restart as all the apps are open again like before going to sleep. has anyone faced a similar problem?

Nop, nothing. Even I was planning on doing a clean install, but the next version of OS X is just 2-3 months away. Why bother when everything is working just fine.

I updated to 10.11.5 Combo Update from Apple's website and everything is OK.

I don't use M.2 SATA but I know it should be working with some additional kext.

 

You can find more here at: http://www.macvidcards.com/nvme-driver1.html

Thanks,

 

this worries m(from the faq)

Q:  Can I boot from an NVMe drive?

 

A: No, not until someone writes a standards compliant EFI driver for the Macintosh.

I believe you can boot from it but you have to set your BIOS to use NVMe as the boot device.

Make sure you have disabled serial port in bios.

If I disable the serial port, I automatically load in safe mode

What loads safe mode?

Windows or your motherboard?

Maybe read through this whole thread to get exact motherboard settings. Also make sure your using the latest bios to disable ioapic.

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?

      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:
       

       




       
       
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)  
      Notes:
       
      2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing
      2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list
      2020.01.12: Tested system with OC, added more informations to BIOS settings

      First i will give you information about my specification
       
      Processor : Intel Core i7 6700
      Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3
      RAM : Team DDR4 8GB (2X4GB) 2133Mhz - up to 3000Mhz at XMP Profile
      Graphics Card : Palit Jetstream GTX960 4GB DDR5
      SSD and HDD : Fujitsu F200 for System + 500GB Seagate connect with add on PCI-e to Sata 3 Asmedia ASM1062 Chipset
      Other harddrive : 1 Natno SSD, 2x 2TB Seagate, 2x 500GB Seagate connect with internal SATA Controller Interface
      Wifi Card : TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      Monitor : 2x Asus VN248H (HDMI and Display Port with Converter)
      I need 2 new hardware to support this
      a. PCIe to Sata with 2 Ports Sata (because i use 2 important storage)
      b. PCI to USB 2.0 with NEC Chipset (i Plug USB Keyboard, Mouse and USB Installer here)
       
      My steps :
      1. Make USB installer El Capitan 10.11 Public Release with CreateinstallMedia method
      2. Install Clover Rev 3280 into it
      3. Basic configuration for BIOS (Disable serial port at IO section in bios, Boot with UEFI Mode,  Primary Graphics set to PCI-E, Sata Controller = AHCI, CSM Support = Disable, OS Mode = Windows 8/10 WHQL)
      4. My Masic Configuration for Config.plist (open with Clover Configurator Version 4.24)
          ACPI = tick FixHpet, AddDTGP, FixHDA, New Way, Delete Unused, AddHDMI, Drop OEM_DSM of HDA and SATA.
          Bootflag = nv_disable=1 -v dart=0
          Devices = USB Inject, Add Clock ID, Fix OwnerShip, Audio Layout = 2, Reset HDA
          Graphics = There is no change here
          Kernel and Kext Patches = FakeCPUIID 0x00306F2 and tick KernelHasswellE (Please anybody,, i dont want use this. Latest El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta is supported native to this processor right. Help me with kernel so i don't need to use fakeCpuIID again) I I use Clover R3292 and i don't need to use FakeCPUID again,, just tick Kernel Haswell-E and it will boot. So you need to use Clover R3292 and later
          Rt Variables = BooterConfig 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig 0x067
          SMBios = First i use SMBios MacPro 6.1 but later i just need to use iMac17,1 because My System build is identical with iMac17,1 hardware (SkyLake System)
          System Parameters = Inject Kexts Detect and Tick Inject System ID
      5. Boot from Your USB Installer and do everything like normal until you get into desktop
      6. Install Kext Utility,  
      7. Copy "AppleGraphicsControl.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to Desktop and then edit info.plist at "AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist" and look at OKitPersonalities->AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy->ConfigMap and change "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - Config1" to "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - None". Reinstall this kext with Kext Utility.
       
      Note : the reason you need to "Config1" of "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6" because it's BOARD-ID for MacPro6,1. so if you use SMBios of iMac17,1 then Check your Board-Id (you can use Clover Configurator and open your config.plist and see your Board-id at SMBios Section) and change "Config2/Config1" to "none". Now i use "Mac-DB15BD556843C820" as my Board-ID because i use iMac17,1 SMBios  so i need to change ConfigMap that related to it 
       
      8. Install Nvidia Web Driver version 346.03.02f02, and restart.
      9. Change bootflag "nv_disable=1" to "nvda_drv=1"
      10. After you get into desktop, get Latest Beta Build 10.11.1 Seed. You need to change seed catalog update first (google it).
      11. Do update to 10.11.1 Build 15B38b and restart
      12. Boot again with bootflag "nv_disable=1", and copy "NVDAStartupWeb.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to desktop. And open info.plist at "NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist". Look at "IOKitPersonalities->NVDAStartup" and change "NVDARequiredOS - 15A284" to "NVDARequiredOS - 15B". Save,, and reinstall this kext with Kext Utility
      13. IMPORTANT, if you use SMBIOS MacPro 6.1 or iMac 15.1 and some type (I forgot) then do "7Th Step" above again.
      14. Restart and reuse "nvda_drv=1"
      15. Now you have El Capitan 10.11.1 at your SKYLAKE Computer
       
      Problem
      1. Internal Sata is still not function, it show "Intel 10 Series Chipset" but "unknown" for Harddrive Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      2. USB 3.0 is not function too, but it shot at USB System Report Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      3. When you open Browser Applications, Movies or Something like that then it will freeze for 10 seconds. I check console and i found "NVDA(Graphics): Channel exception!

      5. We need to change Device HDAS to HDEF at address "0x00fF0003", but something weird after 5times my system freeze and i look at Audio System Report it suddenly show all of AUDIO Interface , before not. Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      6. I look at my Graphics/Displays Sytem report and at PCIe Lane Width, it show "x4" or "x8". Damn,, it should be "x16". It will random change after freeze from "x4" or "x8" My bad, i just need to plug out and plug in again. Just assembly case

      Hello everyone, I've an Acer Aspire E5-574 running Mojave at last update, everything is fine, except by the laggy mouse, as the attached, when the system needs the graphic card (Intel HD 520) it's generates a lag.
