Here there is an error. When creating boot by usb so on El Capitan is okay, but when installed on ssd clover 3330 to launch in El Capitan is in the bios boot options appear more 1 again and so continuously accumulated for the next boot time follow. I can fix it?

 

Easiest way is to refresh the firmware to the same version again. That will rid it. Or maybe you could try a full power down + bios reset - pull plug out - wait a few secs and reboot / back to bios and load  defaults/looad up your saved profile and see what happens too.

Make sure there is no another EFI partition at your Computer. If you dual boot with windows,, then reinstall windows,, install it with UEFI mode. Windows will make Bootable file at EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi in EFI Partition of OS X Harddrive. Then to delete those entries, you need to run "bcfg" command with shell. Clover has shell command when you get GUI Clover (see at left of options). 

 

I use this command tu delete another "DISTURBING" entries. 

 

"bcfg boot rm 03"

 

Change "03" with values of disturbing entries. (use "bcfg boot dump" to see disturbing entries's value)

 

Sorry for my bad english,, i hope you understand what i meant

 Andres ZeroCross Thanks for the info in your Z170X-Gaming-7-USB3.0-Injection.kext . My Gaming G1 is almost there and Im now fine tuning.

 

Your Gaming 7 is almost the same as my motherboard the Gaming G1 although I have a different layout / extra banks of USBs

​Could you adjust your USB injector kext and make one for the G1? Or show me what I need to do?

 

UPDATE: Also I have two extra Asmedia 1061 port connectors (labelled SATA3 6-7, GSATA3 8-9). Any recommendations? Ignore They work OOTB!

 

[info for my gaming G1 spec is here http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5478#sp]

You could add this kext http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/436-ahciportinjectorkext/for the ASM1061

As for the USB I would recommend giving https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-Alla read.  You will need to plug in a usb 2 and usb 3 device into the USB ports and determine which ones you do not need and modify the inject all kext to only inject for ports that you need.

Which version of the BIOS are you running? I have nearly the same CPU(6700K) & Motherboard(Gigabyte Z170X - Gaming 7), but no luck so far.

 

I've tried your version of config.plist files & kexts as well as the one published under here for the skylake starter. 

 

 

Here are my founding so far about BIOS:

  • f6f - I am not able to get to the language choice menu
  • f6k - I was able to get to the language menu but list of drives was empty

1. Enter your bios

2. Check where you can find IOAPIC Setting and change to "DISABLE"  :thumbsup_anim: 

3. Look for SERIAL PORT Setting,, and set to "DISABLE"

4. Try to Install again

I was able to go through the install process with the SATA HDD drive (no M.2 was listed).

 

Anyone having any luck with M.2 drives? I have M.2 Samsung 950 PRO 256.

[success] El Cap 10.11.2 on Gigabyte z170 Gaming G1 / i7 6700k \64Gb RAM / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6143 MB 

 

All pretty cool so far.

Both Killer network nics work with Atheros2200\2400 Meinze's kext.

Most USBs work / switched some off at boot so yet to try all

 

Attempting to see if Killer WIFI AC1535 will work (could've sworn I noticed this was working earlier...)

Attempting to see if I can get the m.2 samsung PCIe x4 NVME 500Gb card working

Will take a look at getting Creative 3D Sound {censored} working too

 

 

Very interested if you will have any luck with the M.2 drive. I have same drive.

I have Nvidia 970 4GB, but after installing alternative drivers from nvidia my machine is still running some weird 7MB version of it.

 

Is there anything special I need to do? When I enable Integrated graphic on the BIOS my machine does not want to boot up.

Thats like its not working properly, safe mode style! You should download and install latest (google them) nvidia web drivers, then check your config plist in clover configurator and make sure nvda_drv=1 is checked in 'Boot' section of clover, File>Save. reboot to see if it works. If not you'll have to nv_disable=1 when you reboot to Clover boot, arrow over to options and put them in the boot attributes there so you can one time get back into OS X and sort it out.

 

As to the m.2 drive I'm halfway trying to get it to initialise it using windows 7 then Ill reboot to see if OSX can see it. Doubtful though. Someone is working on a kext I understand....

I am having a tough time getting the installer to see my sata drives.  I got the installer to see them once but not after that. Your zipped folder contains two separate config.plist files with separate info in them.  I assume you are using Clover.  Could anyone post their clover folder from a working setup?  I could use some pointers, I have built about 30-50 hackintoshes in my day but this is my first new machine in a few years.  I have used the files Andre has posted but the folders have 2 sets of config files and such.  Is Clover the suggested bootloader?

 

My setup and what i've done:

GA-Z170X Gaming 7 Mobo

32GB DDR4 3200 Corsair Ram

Crucial M550 500GB SSD

Gigabyte ATI Radeon 7950 Video card.

 

SuperIO (Serial): Diabled

XHCI Handoff: Enabled

IOAPIC entries: Disabled

running latest Beta bios posted in another forum.  

 

UPDATE-1:  I think I discovered the solution.  I had used the Beta Bios from a Gigabyte forum V. F6k  It does not seem to play nice for some reason.  I went back to F6f from the actual Gigabyte product page for the Gaming 7.  I am now running my clean install again on my SSD.  I will update as I go!

 

Update-2:  Fully up and running with everything working save for the Audio.  I have never been all that handy with codec dumping and fussing with AppleHDA patching.  I have read through the post linked by Andres for the Creative CA0132 but I am unclear what I and where I need to place in my system.  I notice that the headphone jack is not working,  I only use a 2.1 speaker setup with a sub so should I go the voodoo route?  Should I be placing the CA0132.kext in my Clover kexts folder or install to S/L/E?  

Any help with this final piece is appreciated!  Excellent work on this!

 

Update-3:  One thing I forgot to mention, All my USB devices work on boot save for my Razer Naga mouse... I have to hotplug it 1-3 times before it starts working.  This seems odd since the USB3 patches appear to be working for all my other stuff.  (Logitech C920 webcam, Steelseries Apex Keyboard and Razer Krakken headset all work fine)

Thoughts?

It's look USB 3.0 Problem again with El Capitan Build 15D9c :)

 

Can you please give more dummy approach on how did you get the audio to work? Should I include the two kext you have in the zip or do I get the kext from other post you linked to about Creative CA0132?

1. You only need to get Platform.xml.zlib and layout"x".xml.zlib. "x" is depend for layout of your audio. Ask to the patcher, what layout that you should use??
For me, i's layout 2. After you get Platform.xml.zlib and layout2.xml.zlib then try to make dummy kext that contains value of pin config. Normally, you can see this value at AppleHDA/Contents/Plugins/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext/contents/info.plist, see at line "HDAConfig Default" :D

After that,, use patch on the fly of clover to patch binary of AppleHDA.

Update-4:  WEIRDEST thing has happened.  Everything was working....  Now I am all of a sudden not able to boot and its as if the AppleAPIC patch is not working.  When it does boot The networking does NOT work and the Video card seems to think it is a Geforce 960....  I changed nothing.  I am quite perplexed.  About to try and start over but my USB installer boots and I can no longer see my drives again.  All the proper things are still disabled in Bios.  It's as if it is a totally different setup now.

Flash your bios again with beta bios, set as default. Change IOAPIC Entry to Disable, Make Sure serial port = Disable. Then you go

1- Set WHAT as default?

2- I have re-flashed my bios countless times.....

3- How do I remove YOUR entries that make my system think I have your Geforce 960.

 

Don't use my DSDT, LoL

 

I have already inject my Nvdia GTX960 at DSDT, so you need remove DSM method at PCi0.PEG0.PEGP so it will detect your graphcs card correctly

I think Intel Hd Graphics 530 not working correctly.

This is my screenshot. Anyone can fix it ???

Did you use GTX960 too?? LoL  :hysterical:  :hysterical:  :hysterical:  :hysterical:

Thank you,  Clearly there was some language barrier here.  I suspected it was in the DSDT, I would have not packaged it in the download you provided.  I assumed you had put a default in there.

 

Update:  OK I feel dumb!  I am clearly not paying attention, Andres you of course did an excellent job providing the files we need to do this.  I apologize for my brashness and impatience.  My video card requires no patches and I kept dropping your ACPI folder in place assuming it was a default DSDT.  I am up and running again and I thank you!  I took on this project since I have been home sick recovering from Pneumonia.... my overmedicated brain was rushing through steps.

 

Things have certainly evolved since my last hackintosh 4 years ago!

I have things working flawlessly now save for one oddity.  My Razer Naga Epic mouse needs to be hotplugged 2-6 times at reboot in order to show up.  My Logitech webcam, Steelseries keyboard etc... all work as intended with no issues.  I am thinking a power consumption issue maybe?  Any thoughts?

 

I am going to poke around and see if I can find similar issues for people...  Regular generic mouse works fine.

 

Screen_Shot_2015_12_17_at_2_42_57_PM.png

 

 

 

UPDATE: Seems my Logitech Webcam does the same thing and I have to hotplug it to get it to function.  It does not always need to be done however.  I also have a sleep issue with my Gigabyte Radeon 7950... I am trying to find a UEFI bios that's compatible with my GPU but i'm having little luck.

 

DSDT patching is my weakest suit, any help or advice is appreciated.  I can post my ioreg dump and DSDT if needed.  Is the GraphicsEnabler = No flag still the go to fix for Radeon's with the sleep issue in El Cap?

      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 04/08/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F12d Only or Replace with the older F11 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      Clover Z390 Pro Navi Vega EFI 040820.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT EFI
      Clover Z390 Pro Polaris EFI 040820.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) DSDT EFI
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      OpenCore EFI Update - 04/08/2020
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.
       
      OpenCore 060 Z390 Pro 19,1 030820.zip - OpenCore v0.6.0, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 060 Z390 Pro 1,1 030820.zip - OpenCore v0.6.0, SMBios iMacPro1,1 (IGPU Disabled)
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0. Use the new Config.plist instead.
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      For OpenCore Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following 

       
      PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11c Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      PLEASE NOTE - Please flash your motherboard bios to revision F12d to use my current Clover EFI. It’s a major rework of the bios and vital changes have been made to the layout and power tables. New DSDTs have been created and installed into the new EFI’s but will not work correctly with any other bios revision.

      CFG Unlock (MSR) F12d (F12c Pro WIFI) BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU
       
       
      DSDT's FOR CLOVER ONLY (A big thanks to @MaLd0n for compiling these DSDT's)

      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F11c, 9900k with a 5700 XT but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8600K, 8700, 8700K, 9400K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K, 9900KS (All KF Models work but use SMBios iMacPro1,1 instead)
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, RX 5500, 5500 XT, 5600, 5600 XT, 5700, 5700 XT
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
       
       
       @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install. (glasgood put the guide together for the Z390 Pro but the two boards are so alike that you can follow this guide with no problems at all using the Z390 Master)

      This is how I would create my first hackintosh MacBookPro 13,2 on HP EliteBook 820 G3. I selected this one as an example because it has Ethernet and it. can be made as a perfect MacBookPro 13,2. This procedure will actually work with all Laptops and Desktops too. Watch the videos carefully.
      1. Gather all information about the hardware, download solftware, create flash drive installer with Catalina using Clover and OpenCore boot loaders.
       
       
      2. Understand the files inside boot loader and create the config files for both Clover and OpenCore boot loader.
       
       
      3. Actual installation and post installation.
       
       
       
      Install macOS Catalina to External USB Hard Drive.
       
       
      Patch DSDT and SSDTs for perfect Sleep/Wake and USB ports power.
       
      Use External USB Wifi
       
      Install DW1820A instead of DW1560 for BT4.0 and Wifi.
      Patch AppleALC For Audio Codecs
       
      Cheers,

      Hi everyone, 
      I hava a dell precision m4700 with option dgpu amd firepro m4000, The Intel HD4000 Graphic is disable, i can't enable it on to install Hackintosh
      I'd like to enable it on and ask you for setting custom connectors to get the internal display to work, and enable the iGPU in order to get things like AirPlay screen mirroring to work
      Could you help me?

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (July 2020) Updated to Clover r5120 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        Various Tweaks over Last months The main branch in my github repo is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle seems to work on Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave and Catalina. There is an OpenCore branch in the repo as an alternative to Clover. This guide was developed for a Clover implementation. But the thread has evolved to include discussion of both Clover and Opencore for these systems: T460 and T470 family of ThinkPads.
       
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
