Hi Guys,

 

Those having problems with the install hanging after DSMOS has arrived can try resetting/changing their vbox configuration:

 

To reset/remove a CPUID from your configuration:

1.  Shutdown all VirtualBox windows and the VirtualBox Program.

2.  Edit the <vmname>.vbox file (located in C:\Users\[username]\Virtualbox VMs\<vmname>\ folder) with WordPad and remove the lines that read like

        <CpuIdTree>
          <CpuIdLeaf id="1" eax="67301" ebx="1050624" ecx="10019837" edx="3219913727"/>
        </CpuIdTree>

Spoofing alternative Mac Models/SMBIOSes using VBoxManage.exe

1.  Shutdown all VirtualBox windows and the VirtualBox Program.

2.  Reset your DmiSystemProduct to null...

cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" ""

3.  Enter a different DmiSystemProduct eg spoofing a Macmini6,2 works with El Capitan running in VirtualBox on my laptop XPS M1530. 

VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "Macmini6,2"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F65AE981FFA204ED"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1

4.  You may or may not need to change the CPUID presented to your virtual machine (for my system, I did not need to enter a CPUID:  Try without the CPUID line, then with the line if there is a problem - see @clauden's post#21 above for some alternative CPUIDs).

This did it, thank you.  Once I setup those commands I booted and it came up to a grey screen and errored out.  Then I remove the virualbox harddrive, recreated it and started it back it.  And it installed.  Thank you, again.

Hello, all! :)

I followed all instructions from original post, but I have the same issue as fusion71au (distorted sound). I've tried on both my laptop (ALC269VB), also on a desktop pc (ALC662), but I have the same issue.

 

I've tried different stuff:

- AppleHDA Patcher (I don't think I'm quite sure how to use that; I dragged the config.plist from EFI partition, selected corresponding driver from desktop/laptop and that was it; copied then the config.plist to EFI; restart)

- El Capitan Post Install Scripts

 

Did you figure out how to fix it?

 

Thank you in advance for your attention :)

 

P.S. fusion7au can you delete some messages from your inbox so that you can be contacted?

As first timer, considering trying this to do multiplatform development, I was hoping to understand the relationship between the the machine on which the .iso is created and the cpuid settings for the VM.

 

Is the iso somehow specific for the machine on which it is created? If so, does using Intel's MacCPUID application help with deciding what to settings to use for the VM?

 

Or are the CPUID settings determined by the capabilities of the host machine for the VM?

I'm having trouble creating the .iso. When I run CECI.tool everything looks normal until the end when it says "hdiutil: convert failed - No space left on device"

 

I'm doing this from a VM on Virtualbox running Yosemite. Thanks all!

Thank you, fusion71au. This is a wonderful solution. Everything goes well according the steps for me, until launching the virtual machine guest to start the OSX installation. After some outputs, installation program keep to print below message for ever.

 

The host is Win7 sp1 64, Guest is OS X 11.10 downloading from app store and creating iso on a Mac, Virtual Box version is 5.0.10.

 

I am a beginner to OS X, fusion71au or any guru else could help this ? Thank you!

This is because the "Orable VM Virtual Box Manager" program was not closed when I ran "patching El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings" commands. When running patching commands, not only El_Capitan VM client but also "Orable VM Virtual Box Manager" program should be closed.

UPDATE: Fixed! Read description below to find out what kind of problem did I have and read EDIT 2 with a fix (sort of).

 

Hey there, fusiou71au!

 

I'm fairly new here, but I tried following your guide step-by-step and I managed to get some results! The system is working, but...

 

I'm having weird crashes. They seem to be random, but I found out they occur mostly during "new" operations, like opening a new window, launching a project (in xcode), trying to launch simulator, or even starting to scroll in the window. In most cases I'm not receiving any error messages, just a black screen with console prompt. Or like the screen attached. After a minute, the login screen appears and everything is rolled back to the moment before the crash and I can continue my work, but the crashes are often and I'd rather not work with them.

 

I've prepared the ISO couple of days ago, with El Capitan on version 10.11.4. The same issues seem to be happening to my friend that installed from the same ISO.

 

Is it an issue with the way I prepared the ISO? I did it on my hackintosh yosemite virtual machine (from a guide I found on google) if it matters. If you'd like to get a hand on the ISO in talks, I can PM it to you (I'd rather not give it to public).

 

Or maybe it is not an issue with installation (or preparation), but with my configuration? I think I followed every step here.

 

EDIT: Also another file, with some more error logs that - unfortunatelly - do not give me any hints on where to go any further.

 

EDIT2: I think I might have fixed the issue. It was simply a matter of reinstalling the system with different virtualbox settings. For reference, I'm on

Intel i5 6400

Geforce GTX 970

8GB ram DDR4

 

And virtualbox flags I used:

cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\"

So, I ran through this last night, and it seemed to install fine. I'm able to get in to OS X and do OS X type things, however, I noticed one odd issue. When looking at System Profiler, It's showing I only have 3MB of VRAM, when I set it up to have 128MB (and hope to tweak it further to allow 512). Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks!

Hi,

 

i am trying to run El Capitan on an Intel Xeon E3-1231 v3 Haswell with 4x3,4 Ghz and an ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Performance Board with 8GB Ram.

I just used this config:

 

VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac14,2"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal©AppleComputerInc"
VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1

 

But after Installation i set a User and Password but if i enter the Password in the login screen i get a black screen and then back again the login screen??

 

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks for the great guide! I got this working working on a Lenovo W520.

 

However, it is rather slow. My W520 is running on a Sandy Bridge Intel Core i7 2820QM with 8BG of ram. I followed the tutorial to the T, so I didn't have to spoof or change anything. During the initial installation, I was watching the output, and there were some errors there, but it installed all the way.

 

My question is, is there anyway to speed it up. It's just laggy, and takes a while to open things, and search for things on the web. Is this normal running El Capitan in virtual box?

 

Thanks again for the tutorial. This is pretty sweet!

Hi, I am trying to set custom video mode for ElCapitan running in VirtualBox as a gues (host machine is Ubuntu Linux - by the way, the whole setup is working great).

 

I am trying to set CustomVideoMode as to 1920x1800.

 

In OS X I disabled System Integrity Protection (see guide here: http://anadoxin.org/blog/disabling-system-integrity-protection-from-guest-el-capitan-under-virtualbox-5.html)

 

After that I was able to edit file: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

 

It looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
        <key>Graphics Mode</key>
        <string>1920x1080x32</string>

        <key>Kernel Flags</key>
        <string>"Graphics Mode"="1920x1080x32"</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Shut down the virtual machine and invoke the following command in Ubuntu host:

VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "CustomVideoMode1" "1920x1080x32"

After booting the virtual machine with OS X, custom video mode is not working... any idea what is wrong?

The problem is that you need a functioning Mac in order to create the install media. What if you do not have one? Is there a way to create install media using just a Windows PC?

I dont think so. Anyway, you need iStore access to download El Capitan install App. So yes, I am pretty sure having a Mac is a must.

I'm doing this from a VM on Virtualbox running Yosemite. Thanks all!

 

That simply means that your VirtualBox partition for OS X is too small.

 

You have to either resize the partition (but I don't know how to resize OS X partition after disk resize) or create another larger hard disk and add it to your Yosemite VM, then format the disk under OS X and clone the system to the new disk with Carbon Copy Cloner.

 After that you'll have to swap the first hard disk with the new one and you should have enough room to work with.

 

 Something else, for the resolution problem I tried the VBoxManage setextradata "OS X VM" "VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode" N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5), but didn't work for me.

 

 Until I tried the same line but without quotes arround VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode and assuring that capitalization was respected and this time it worked.

For me VBoxManage setextradata "OS X VM" "VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode" N works fine, but custom resolution (for widescreen) is not working, However, it seems there is a problem with ElCapitan, because VmWare has similar problems.

Hi Kami

 

If your problem looks similarly to the one I described in post #37 then you should simply follow my suggestions in that post.

 

Briefly speaking: try different configurations and reinstall your machine. It helped me.

 

 

The problem is that you need a functioning Mac in order to create the install media. What if you do not have one? Is there a way to create install media using just a Windows PC?

I've created such media for me and my friends from school, if mega is still working, this will be the link with it:

 

https://mega.nz/#!WxtDHa7I!USd5qmnEParmZKR_MLzP0p11-Xje_lJZ4-BbUOQQwOE

 

PS. Don't abuse, I'd rather keep this working at least until next semester.

hi,

 

tried the howto step by step... but my VM got into state "stuck" ... the log is attached here: https://bpaste.net/show/6ddc19b5c448

 

my setup is bit more complicated... running Freenas ; virtualbox inside the jail ... and then VM for osx... any idea? is it possible to make it work in such an environment?

 

 

thank you!

      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

Leaves the system configured in this way:
      Enabled all USB2 ports that are not part of a USB3 port (1 internal for BT + 4 rear that are together + 2 on the front) Enabled the USB2 ports that are part of the 2 rear red USB3.1 ports Disabled the USB2 ports that are part of the 4 rear blue USB3 ports Enabled all USB3 ports except the internal one for USB type C connection. Summary: Rear blue ports do not recognize USB2 devices.

      NOTE 2: XHCI-unsupported.kext is required for XHC chipsets whose Device ID is not included in macOS. Depending on the USB driver of your board, it may be necessary to install some additional extension:

This board (generally Z390 chipset boards) carries the USB 3.1 controller with device ID A36D so the XHCI-unsupported kext is required. You can check your device ID at

      There are many publications with instructions so I will only comment on a few specific details.
      The installation USB memory must have a GUID partition scheme so that the board's UEFI can boot from it. I have prepared the USB with the createinstallmedia method + the application "Install macOS Catalina" in the Applications folder The device is USB 3 and, connected to the front USB 3 port, it performs the task quite quickly I have used Clover r5121 which is currently the latest version. The EFI folder of the installation USB can be the same as that of the hard disk with 2 differences: Acpi> SSDT> PluginType deselected and Acpi> Boot leave Default Boot Volume blank and Timeout -1 (so that no volume will boot automatically from the Clover menu). To mount the EFI partition (of the disk or the USB device) I have used Clover Configurator which makes this task very simple or the command line (diskutil), first finding out what disk and partition number is the EFI (diskutil list) and showing it later (mountdisk):
      sudo diskutil list
      sudo diskutil mountdisk / dev / disk2s3  
      RX 580

      Although my RX 580 card is a model from the XFX brand, known for using custom VBios and giving problems in macOS, in my case it seems to work well with Lilu and WhatEverGreen. Booting the operating system it does not show artifacts, the 3 DP ports and the only HDMI port work, you can send the image simultaneously to 2 screens (I have not tried more) with the usual duplication options, yo can send sound in addition to image to one TV by HDMI, during the installation of the operating system it works correctly provided that Lilu and WhatEverGreen are in the USB device, etc. GeekBench 5 Scores: Metal 50100 / OpenCL 44100. As a comparison, the integrated card does not reach 4800 in Metal.
      Regarding the hardware decoding of H264 and HEVC videos, the Hackintool tool and the VideoProc application report that it is not supported although the playback of files of both types with rates of up to 20 mbps is correct so I suspect that it actually encodes well. In order for hardware decoding to appear as supported in the commented applications, the integrated Intel Graphics 630 card must be enabled even if it is disconnected in headless mode (using the RX 580 card as primary sending image to the screen).
       


      Sound

      This board incorporates the Realtek ALC1220 chip that needs the AppleALC extension to work. AppleALC is a Lilu plugin so both must be properly installed.
      Note: Clover > Devices > Audio > Inject 11 or 13 or 15. I’ve tried several layouts and this are the only valid at least in my case.
      Some users have commented that the system does not load AppleALC and they have no sound despite having the extensions in EFI / CLOVER / kexts / Other. In these cases it can be successful to install AppleALC and Lilu in / Library / Extensions and rebuild the extensions cache with Hackintool (a very convenient way to do it) or with this Terminal command:
      sudo spctl --master-disable; sudo mount -uw /; killall Finder; sudo chown -v -R root: wheel / System / Library / Extensions; sudo touch / System / Library / Extensions; sudo chmod -v -R 755 / Library / Extensions; sudo chown -v -R root: wheel / Library / Extensions; sudo touch / Library / Extensions; sudo kextcache -i /  
      What this command does is disable Gatekeeper, mount the system disk in read / write mode, repair permissions on the extensions folders and rebuild the cache. But all of that is done by Hackintool with less work on our part.

      Ethernet

      This board carries the Intel I219V chip that works well with the IntelMausiEthernet extension.

      Wifi & Bluetooth

      I use a Fenvi FV T-919 mini PCI-E card that carries both wifi and bluetooth chips. This card works perfectly in macOS without needing anything other than placing it on the board because it is recognized as Airport Extreme and Bluetooth Apple. Has its own article on perez987.

      Disks

      Samsung EVO 860 SSD. It is a solid state disk with references to work well in Mac. In my case it works well, with a read speed of 430 and a write speed of 250. I have tried faster SSDs but they have given problems to install Catalina, instead with the EVO 860 everything has worked perfectly.

      Integrated graphics

      Integrated Intel Graphics 630 card: we can to make it work correctly by adding some properties in Clover's Devices tab. For it to work you have to:

      - enable it on the board as primary graphics: Initial Display Output IGFX instead of PCIe 1 Slot (actually this is the final step after modifying config.plist)
      - add in config.plist: Boot> Boot Arguments> igfxonln = 1
      - apply a patch (video and audio) in config.plist: Devices> Properties. It is easier to do it from the config.plist file in text mode than from Clover Configurator. With the file open as text find the lines
      <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>ResetHDA</key> <false/> <key>Inject</key> <integer>11</integer> </dict>  
      Immediately above of them paste this text:
      <key>Properties</key> <dict> <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1F,0x3)</key> <dict> <key>layout-id</key> <data>CwAAAA==</data> <key>model</key> <string>Cannon Lake HDMI</string> <key>hda-gfx</key> <string>onboard-2</string> <key>AAPL,slot-name</key> <string>Internal@0,31,3</string> <key>device_type</key> <string>Audio device</string> </dict> <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)</key> <dict> <key>framebuffer-con0-busid</key> <data>AAAAAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-con0-type</key> <data>AAgAAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-con2-flags</key> <data>xwMAAA==</data> <key>model</key> <string>Intel UHD Graphics 630</string> <key>framebuffer-con1-busid</key> <data>AAAAAA==</data> <key>device-id</key> <data>kT4AAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-con2-type</key> <data>AAgAAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-con2-busid</key> <data>BAAAAA==</data> <key>device_type</key> <string>Display controller</string> <key>hda-gfx</key> <string>onboard-1</string> <key>framebuffer-patch-enable</key> <data>AQAAAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-con1-type</key> <data>AAgAAA==</data> <key>AAPL,slot-name</key> <string>Internal@0,2,0</string> <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key> <data>BwCbPg==</data> <key>framebuffer-con2-enable</key> <data>AQAAAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-con1-enable</key> <data>AQAAAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-con0-enable</key> <data>AQAAAA==</data> </dict> </dict> But the system crashes when comes out of sleep mode (the PC restarts after a few seconds of leaving sleep mode). This behavior occurs if the cable that comes out from the HDMI port on the motherboard (the only existing connector on this Mobo) plugs in a DisplayPort port on the monitor; if it plugs directly into another HDMI port (monitor or TV) the bug does not occurs and the PC goes in and out of sleep normally.

      Currently the only way to have the graphics card connected to a port other than HDMI without this crash is by replacing the "hda-gfx" property with "no-hda-gfx" in the above code of config.plist. The 2 lines
      <key>hda-gfx</key> <string>onboard-2</string> must be replaced by
      <key>No-hda-gfx</key> <data>AAAAAAAAAAA=</data> After adding this property, you will no longer have sound over HDMI / DP but sleep works very well.

      In summary:
      - Intel HDMI to DisplayPort monitor> has HDMI audio output but has kernel panic when coming from sleep
      - Intel HDMI to HDMI TV> has HDMI audio output and sleep works fine
      - Intel HDMI to DisplayPort monitor with "no-hda-gfx"> sleep works fine but HDMI audio output is lost.

      (based on the post "[GUIDE] General Framebuffer Patching Guide (HDMI Black Screen Problem)" by CaseySJ; thanks also to deeveedee for his help).

      This card can be left activated without connection to the monitor (headless mode) and apparently does not show any interference with the rest of the system.

      With the integrated card as the main card, the system shows enabled both graphics cards and allows to have a screen connected to the Intel 630 via HDMI and a different screen connected to the RX 580 via DP or HDMI, in this case the primary screen is that from the Intel and the other only works when the graphics driver is loaded but, once the system is up and running, the screens allow duplication options as if they depend on a single card.
       
       
       
       
       
      Evolution to Oc Quirks

      OC Quirks is an EFI driver for Clover that replaces AptioMemoryFix and all OsxAptioFix variants. It supports the OpenCore quirks model. AptioMemoryFix has evolved little in the most recent stage and is in a way becoming obsolete. Next versions of Clover will probably stop installing AptioMemoryFix and switch to OC Quirks which is evolving and receiving frequent improvements. You can read about this on the working group website: ReddestDream.

      Migrating our installation from AptioMemoryFix to OC Quirks is relatively simple:
      download the latest version of OC Quirks (search Releases, current version is 23) have a USB device that boots up properly to use in case of failure mount the disk's EFI partition delete AptioMemoryFix and any other OsxAptioFix variant add OcQuirks.efi, OpenRuntime.efi and OcQuirks.plist to Clover's drivers/UEFI folder change to true DevirtualiseMmio and ProtectUefiServices in the file OcQuirks.plist (recommended on boards with Z390 chipset) in Clover> Quirks config.plist file, check the boxes AvoidRuntimeDefrag - DevirtualiseMmio - EnableSafeModeSlide - ForceExitBootServices - ProtectUefiServices - ProvideConsoleGopEnable - ProvideCustomSlide - SetupVirtualMap - SyncRuntimePermissions and assign the value 0 to ProvideMaxSlide Restart the PC.  
      Kernel Panic with BIOS F10c if integrated graphics is enabled

      The Z390 Aorus Elite board comes with BIOS F9 with which the text of this post has been written.

      A few days ago I updated to the current version which is F10c and, since then, I have suffered a kernel panic with the forbidden symbol when going from the Clover menu to the macOS boot screen if the integrated card was enabled in BIOS. This happened regardless of whether the Intel UHD Graphics 630 card was set to Clover (fully for monitor output or headless mode for encoding) or not.

      Returning to BIOS F9 the system has returned to working as before and the kernel panic has disappeared. I can have the card enabled or disabled again in BIOS without problems.

      Hello All,
       
      It's been a while that I am trying to update my system to 10.15.16.
      The install seem to start, then at reboot time I only see the Normal boot and the Recovery option from the Clover boot menu.
      None of those 2 allow to complete the update.
       
      Is there any ways to force it to install and/or show the "Update" option on the Clover boot screen?
       
      PS: I'm using Z97-Gaming-3
