Introduction

This is a step-by-step guide for installing macOS Sierra 10.12.x on ASRock H170M-ITX/ac utilizing the onboard Intel HD530 GPU. Sorry for not elaborating like you’re reading a novel of some sort, but I think this is for your own benefit. Here are the details of my personal build:

 

- ASRock H170M-ITX/ac (BIOS v7.00)

- Core i3-6100 @ 3.7GHz

- 16GB RAM @ 2133MHz

- Onboard HD530 via HDMI

- Mini PCIe BCM94352HMB Wifi+BT

 

My experience with this system after 4 - 5 months of daily development usage (Xcode, Web etc.) is this: It's most definitely a very stable system if you don't mind the well known Hackintosh plague, which is the absence of Sleep functionality. Highly recommended.

 

Prerequisites

Maccie, a working Macintosh or Hackintosh computer, or even a macOS VM on Windows.

Hackie, your to-be Hackintosh computer.

Installie, a USB disk with capacity of 16GB or more.

 

Create the Install Disk

A) Download Install macOS Sierra.app from the AppStore on Maccie.

B)Insert a USB disk on Maccie and open Disk Utility. Select your USB disk, select Erase, add Installie as its name and press Erase.

C) Run the following command from Terminal: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Installie --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction

D) Once more, rename your USB disk to Installie and execute Clover_v2.4k_r4049.pkg. Select Installie USB disk as target, then proceed to the customization step.

E) Select nothing but Install for UEFI booting onlyInstall Clover in the ESP, and OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 from Drivers64UEFI menu.

F) Installie's EFI partition is now mounted. Overwrite EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with the config.plist file attached to this post.

G) Copy all attached kexts to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other, copy SSDT-2.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.

 

OS X Installation

H) Your Installie USB disk is now ready, plug it in on Hackie.

I) Press Del key to enter Hackie’s BIOS. On the Exit menu, execute Load UEFI Defaults, then enable XHCI Handoff.

J) On Boot menu, set your first boot device to UEFI: BrandName XYZ, Partition 1. Save everything and exit.

K) On Clover menu, select the macOS Installer entry, and after a couple of minutes you should be in the macOS Sierra installer.

L) Open Disk Utility, and format Hackie's internal HDD or SDD just like on step B, but this time name it Macintosh HD.

M) Continue with the installation on Macintosh HD until Hackie is restarted. Then, the second part of the installation will continue.

N) On the last restart, this time boot from your newly created Macintosh HD.

 

Finalize

O) With some luck you should be now customizing your Hackie's first run.

P) Repeat steps D, E, F, G but this time make sure you apply everything on Macintosh HD.

Q) Remove Installie from USB port, and restart Hackie.

R) The end.

 

Extra Points

S) If you own a SSD, paste the following on Terminal in order to enable TRIM support: sudo trimforce enable

T) Replace VBoxHfs-64.efi with HFSPlus-64.efi in drivers64UEFI. It's proprietary, but it's faster.

 

Notes

- You should replace the default Intel Wifi+BT Mini PCIe card with the BCM94352HMB or something equally compatible.

- Sleep does not work yet (see post #2 for output).

- Keep in mind that this is a WIP, any input from you will be much appreciated.

Make sure to mention the lettering of the step in question and the description of your problem using as much detail as possible.

Now after the _OSI to XOSI patch the "Wake reason" is:

denniss-imac:~ dk$ syslog | grep -i "Wake reason" 
May 11 20:00:55 denniss-imac kernel[0] <Notice>: Wake reason: XDCI

And it panics on:

denniss-imac:~ dk$ pmset -g log | grep -i failure

Hey, I have the ASrock H170M PRO4S

2.7 Core i5 6400
Onboard Video HD 5300
16GB DDR

I have been trying to get to installer and so far your instructions and Plist Config actually gets me farther into boot ...until i get the "stop" prohibitor sign.

 

Any help would be awesome As there are no guides for this Motherboard.. Thanks!

Thanks for your feedback, I think those two Motherboards should be similar. Could you please boot with Verbose Flag (-v) and see where it gets stuck?

Sure, so it gets stuck here and then it gets all distorted. 

 

I honestly cannot read the output of the second screen, but based on the first one I will make an assumption: Do you have "FakeSMC.kext" on EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11?

 

EDIT: I think it says "Still waiting for root device" at the bottom. Try to boot with "cpus=1" flag and report back.

Same error, and I used the same "FakeSMC.kext that you had in your attachment..

Did you try "cpus=1"?

Yes, I Did. Same error at the same place.

 

1) Is your SATA Controller set as AHCI in BIOS?

2) Try to also enable "Inject USB" on Clover's "config.plist", right now only "Fix Ownership" is enabled.

3) Some people also mention the following Boot Flags: npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000

4) Also keep "USBInjectAll.kext" on your "EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11" as well.

1. AHCI is already set in Bios.

2. I checked off the box for inject USB

3. I have tried both boot flags, one at a time.

4. I have put "USBInjectAll.kext in 10.10, 10,11, and "other:".

 

Still stuck at the same place.

Interestingly, I tried booting with -x and it flys thru the boot but it then restarts.

Try inject intel ang ig-platform-id 0x19120000

I have tried that as well.

 

As I was looking over my build, I have forgotten to add a hardware piece that i had in there but forgot to mention. I have a TP-LINK N900 wireless PCI Express installed.

Inject USB box should be checked, not unchecked.

My boot flags with "-uia_exclude" may be disabling your Boot USB, try to remove it.

Try also to use "UseKernelCache=No".

Disable VT-d in BIOS as well, maybe "dart=0" doesn't work.

Some user also reported in order to get past the garbled text you need to try a different output (HDMI, DVI etc).

I've tried following these instructions on my Asrock H110 mitx mother board, it just loops back to the boot devices screen.

 

Do you see anything on screen before it resets?

No, it just blinks and the boot menu comes back.

 

So you are at the boot menu, you select to boot from USB, and then it resets. How about you press the spacebar (for options), and make sure you Boot Verbose. Then report back with what you see on screen.

I tried this guide to install a Hackintosch with my system components, but the system is not booting. I used the ktexts from this thread, only cpu settings are changed.

 

My components are:

ASRock H170M-ITX/ac

Pentium G4400 Celeron cpu

Onboard gpu

 

At the moment i use a G4400, later i will switch to i5 or i7.

 

System is booting from usb, clover is loading. At Clover boot screen, i try to boot the system in verbose mode.

After that i got the following errors:

 

OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for .IABootFiles/boot.efi

Using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no

This version of Mac OS X is not support

Reason: Mac-65CE76090165799A

      The following files exist on the github:
       
      a) Clover.app-v1.11-5100.zip
      b) Clover_v2.5k_r5100.pkg
      c) CloverISO-5100.tar.lzma
      d) CloverV2-5100.zip
      e) CLOVERX64.efi.zip
       
       
      Is (a) for installing as an app on OSX? What is it for?
       
      What is (b) for, the .pkg? Not exactly familiar with .pkg. I've seen it used in UNIX, but I believe it's also a PKG format for installing packages on OSX. So, what is the difference between this (b), and (a)? (a) is labeled v1.11-5100, while (b) is labeled v2.5k_r5100.
      (c) contains only this file, Clover-v2.5k-5100-X64.iso, which I assume is a pre-bootloader.
      (d) looks like the NON ISO version, to build an ISO?
      (e) Contains CLOVERX64.efi, which is the same CloverX64.efi for Clover.app-v1.11-5100 and CloverV2-5100.zip
       
      Thanks for any explanations.

      Hi all, I have been using an x240 thinkpad for more than 2 months as hackintosh and it is very stable. As of now I am in Catalina 10.15.1 and it’s running great until I updated it to the new clover build r5100. My laptop won’t automatically sleep when I close the lid down now. I reverted back to 5099 and close-lid automatic sleep works. I don’t know what caused the problem but I think 5100 fixed a dsdt patching of some sort that that conflicted with my config plist? Thanks in advance!

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (November 2019) Updated to Clover r5099 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added acidanthera VoodooPS2 kext v2.0.4 moved the older 1.9 to the Misc Folder as an option.
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      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.

      Gigabyte, in their infinite wisdom, decided to remove the option to disable serial ports, and not being able to do so has been causing me some problems. I know that I have to either use a patch in clover, or create a custom SSDT to disable super I/O, but I honestly do not know how to go about doing this. One of the weirder problems I'm experiencing is the inability to connect to Apple Music (error 11556) unless I go into my network settings, and delete my serial connection. If anyone could help me out with this, that'd be greatly appreciated; anyway, thank you for taking the time to read this.
