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

If your Mac OS loads in safe mode make sure to remove -x flag in config.plist

in the second line you'll see Boor Args:dart=0 and there is no -x flag.

Which version of mac os x you try to install because all the versions prior to 10.11.4 have trouble detecting your Graphics Adapter which is IntelHD 530 integrated graphics.

Make sure your USB installer is 10.11.4 and use the following config.plist

 

let me know if it works.

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.

config.plist is an essential part of clover's bootloader and depending on the settings in bios you'll find config.plist in one of the following paths:

 

EFI/ESP setup: in this scheme you'll find the config.plist under Hard Disk's EFI partition EFI\EFI\Clover\config.plist

 

on legacy setups you'll find the file under bootable partition's root under EFI\Clover\config.plist

 

if you managed to find the config.plist make a copy of your existing config.plist and replace the old one with the one I posted.

 

in Mac OS X use a software called clover configurator to open and edit the config.plist file and you can also mount the EFI partition with clover configurator.

Cyberdevs, thks so much for ur help.

I´ve never use a Mac and I have no friend to use it, so I can not configure my usb installer.

Apparently he'll have to keep using Wndows and Linux or It seems I'll have to buy a used mac to configure my USB.

Thank you again

You're welcome,

 

But actually you don't have to buy a Mac. All you need is VMWare and some search about how to install Mac OS X on VMWare and you can modify your USB Installer or create new installer for you new Hackintosh :)

I try to install the VMware but the program does not recognize any .img or .dmg or .rvi

If you have a bootable ISO file for Mac OS X you can boot VMWare from it.

 

or you can use TransMac to transfer the files from a DMG to IMG or maybe ISO files. you need to search the steps because I don't remember exactly how I created my first bootable VMWare disk image and besides I always had access to a working Mac OS.

 

Good luck

I have 5 or 6 copies of "el capitan" but the vmware does not recognize any of them.

My USB loader use a .rvi file.

Well i try to search other copy of el capitan.

Thank you time and your help

The key is to use a pre- installed el capitan VMware image not create one from scratch.

I forgot to mention that MacTrans is a windows application to open Mac img and dmg formats.

When the bootloader starts you need to set the -v flag so it shows you the verbose log and from there you can start troubleshooting.

In order to do the verbose booting add -v to Boot Args: in your clover options.

Post a picture of the verbose log so we can see what's going on.

You can find some useful information in this topic about how to enable the sound:

 

Download and install VoodooHDA 2.8.8.V3

Use clover configurator to edit your config.plist

Set the following flags under Boot section:

kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0

 

see here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309352-el-capitan-on-ga-z170x-gaming-5/?p=2199304

Muchas gracias

You're welcome :)

I'm glad you found this topic useful and welcome to my topic :)

 

Nice config by the way!

 

Use clover configurator to edit your config.plist:

 

In order to fix the shutdown problem you need to set the following flag in the config.plist

Under ACPI section, Find Fixes and check FixShutdown.

 

Good luck

Best of luck

Thank you again. Another problem that you solved :) Now the Shut Down works perfect.

 

My Hackintosh is almost perfect: Only left Sleep mode. Do you have any idea why it doesn't work?

 

Have a nice day!

      Hey.
      I have a Dell Vostro 3267 system unit. It has a Skylake processor Intel Core i5-6400 with integrated graphics Intel HD 530, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD. The monitor is connected via HDMI.
      I faced a problem that if I enter Hackintosh in a sleep mode, and then I press something on the keyboard, the system unit wakes up (I hear as coolers begin to turn), but the monitor does not react in any way.
      I tried to disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cord, tried to inject EDID in config tried to change SMBIOS on MacMini8,1, but it did not change the situation.
      How to solve the problem?
       
      P.S.
      All in Mojave 10.14.6
      CLOVER.7z

      Hi, I want to install MacOS Catalina on my laptop.
      I was installed MacOS Mojave previously but i had a lot of problem, for example my wifi's card (Dell DW1820A) had a problem: My pc sometimes doesn't boot up or pc after some minutes crashed or slowed. 
      Now i want to try again to install macOS.
       
      this is my spec: 
      HP 15-AY034NL 
      CPU: i7 6500U  with HD520
      SSD: 500GB SSD Samsung
      Wifi & Bluetooth: Dell DW1820A (Bluetooth: BCM2045A0) (Wifi: BCM94350ZAE)
      USB 3.0 
      Ethernet: Realtek 8100
       
      Attached in this thread, my old clover configuration created by me (CLOVER OLD) and clover with Wifi driver (CLOVER) created by Hervè (I had asked help at insanelymac's community)
       
      P.S SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH.
      Thanks in advance

      HP 250 G5/Skylake/I5/520 graphics/sunrise point   Insyde H20 updated with TPM, virtualizaton and secure boot disabled.  19A546d USB boots -v cpus=1 and begins install ok.  After first reboot installer hangs at 14 minutes remaining with high CPU/fan use and no HDD write activity.   Same after 4-5 hours.  First reboot apparently creates the volume group and writes the installer files to the Data volume ok.  Clover shows preboot/installer  installer and Recovery icons.  It appears that there are no system files being written to the System volume.  The reboot USB verbose output screen indicates 'assertion failed 19A546d'.  Mojave boots/runs ok on its own partition same HDD.   Anyone with similar installer issue on HP notebook and/or Insyde BIOS?  Any help appreciated.

      Running Mojave 10.14.6 (18G95) on a Dell Precision 7510 and trying to get all framebuffers working properly.

      The actual Device ID of the iGPU is 0x191D.
       
      There are the following graphical outputs:
       
      mDP
      HDMI
      Thunderbolt
       
      Clover 5058 (update to date at time of writing) is being used and up to date versions of Lilu 1.38, WEG 1.3.1
       
      Till now I've been running with the following config:
       

       
      with Model Name: MacBookPro13,3
       
      When using 191B:

      HDMI (no audio) : 1920x1080
      Thunderbolt (no audio) : 3440 x 1440

      Hi!
       
      I have everything working on my Acer notebook, except FN + Brightness keys using VoodoPS2Controller.kext
       
      Now the brightness keys are "Pause+Break = Brightness Up" and "Fn+F12 = Brightness Down" working right now but they are not the actual keys. 
      The actual brightness keys are "Fn+RightArrow = Brightness Up" and "Fn+LeftArrow = Brightness Down" but they are not working.
      The problem is I don't know the codes.
      Installed ioio and enabled debugging to console:
      Pause/Break is generating: "ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key e045=71" which upper the brightness
      Fn+F12 is generating: "ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key 46=6b" which lower the brightness
      Fn+RightArrow/LeftArrow generates nothing.
      Keyboard attached to PS2K
      Then I used rehabman's guide to enable ACPIDebugging, Installed kext to L/E, Debug methods (Instrument EC Queries, Add DSDT Debug Methods) to DSDT, but there are no codes generated to the log.
       
      Attaching debug folder.
      Also I don't know if it will help, but on Linux I got a code from decreasing/rising brightness with Fn+Left/RightArrow keys:
      Fn+RightArrow: "0xe0 0x54 0xe0 0xd4"
      Fn+Left: "0xe0 0x4c 0xe0 0xcc"
       
      Also I love using EMlyDinEsH's SmartTouchpad Driver, with that all of my Fn keys are working except Brigtness keys ofc. If there are any fix I would like to use that with the smarttouchpad driver. 
      EMlyDinEsH's SmartTouchpad Driver: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/1948-elan-focaltech-and-synaptics-smart-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/
       
      Specs in my signature. 
      Please help me fix this very last issue on my acer.
