[Guide] macOS Sierra 10.12.x on ASRock H170M-ITX/ac

426 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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

 

My config.plist

 

Yes, because your CPU is not natively supported by OS X, you have to spoof it:

 

<key>FakeCPUID</key>

<string>0x0306C0</string>

Can you add also "cpus=1" to Boot Flags without the quotes?

Yes, because your CPU is not natively supported by OS X, you have to spoof it:

 

<key>FakeCPUID</key>

<string>0x0306C0</string>

 

That FakeID is from an Haswell CPU...

Could he use my CPU ID? It's a Skylake i3 6100.

 

Family 0x06

Model 0x5e

Stepping 0x03

 

0x03065e?

i tried different config keys, but there is no improvement:

    <dict>
        <key>Arguments</key>
        <string>dart=0 cpus=1 uia_exclude=HS01;HS02;SS03;SS04;SS05;SS06;SS07;SS08;SS09;SS10;USR1;USR2</string>

has no effect.

 

I tried 0x0306R0 and 0x0306C0 as FakeCPUID without any success.

 

Will there be an effect if i change from skylake G4400 to a Skylake i3 or i5?

If you change your CPU, of course you will be good to install.

Just wanted to post a thank you to Denicio for this guide.  Helped me get my son's H170M-ITXD/L up and going.  All seems to run well except sleep.  I will share if I can figure out the issue there.

Sound is working but I need to keep the RT variable at 0X3 to load unsigned kexts.  Is this normal?  I would prefer it at 0X0 when I hand it over to my kid.

If the RT variable is not set, it usually gets a default value from Clover. Either way, thanks for your kind words and whatever problem arises we're here to help out. I will also be trying the Sierra dev builds in time and post an update in the future. Best of luck and skills!

i tried this guide and install on a HDD el captain

but i can't find the hard disk in clover , i can see only the bootable usb

 

Found out what's wrong with your build. On the first restart obviously you did not enter the Installer again to finalize the installation. If you succeed in doing this, then you will see your El Capitan disk on Clover.

Can you post your config.plist? I find it highly unlikely to get these results with the method described on this tutorial.

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

 

For future reference, I had the same problem on a asrock H170M-ITX/DL motherboard.

The problem was using a USB 2.0 port, when booting from the USB 3.0 header everything worked.

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

 

 

Hi all, I bought the ASRock Deskmini 110W that comes with the Asrock H110M-STX. The 110W comes with Intel AC3160 Wi-Fi which does not work with macOS. I installed a Dell DW1560 Broadcom BCM94352Z.

 

I tried to install El Capitan and Sierra Public Beta 6. All I am getting is kernel panic and loop back to Clover screen. I need to capture the kernel panic screen and diagnose that....

Hello, installation went fine. Thank you very much for your precious guide. I have just a newbie question. After installing the Nvidia webdrivers during reboot the screen keep black. Probably a problem of  resolution. How can I force from boot the monitor native resolution (2560 x 1440)? Thank you in advance.

As far as I know for nVidia there's a new method for Clover in Sierra, please search Google for this "New Method for Enabling NVIDIA Web Drivers in Clover" :)

Hi everyone

I'm a new here and have a lamer question.

 

I did everything as explained above and succeeded to install Sierra over Gigabyte H170M-D3H/DDR3 motherboard.

Everything works well except one thing.

I need to boot with the setup pen drive anytime I need to boot OSX. I understand the Clover must be installed to the SSD and Kexts also must be copied.

So where can I find proper instructions?

 

Thanks

OK, I found where I misread. Never mind.

Repeating the same steps just like you did for the USB installation drive. If you have more questions, don't hesitate.

I can see that your Boot Flags are not the ones listed on this guide, care to explain if you were facing problems before?

Changelog:

- Updated AppleALC.kext and IntelMausiEthernet.kext to latest versions.

- Simplified "config.plist" for Sierra Installation.

Hi Guys

 

firstly Denicio, many thanks for creating this guide, this has got me further on than any other guide I could find out there.

 

Firstly the specs:

ASRock Z170M-ITX/ac  Chosen as it's on the compatibility list, along with having Display port (not yet in use) and being compatible with the case used (Streacom FC08)

16GB DDR 4 Vengeance running stock (XMP disabled)

i7 6770 non K variant

Crucial MX300 1TB SSD

 

currently tried connecting to two different monitor via DVI (will try an HDMI adaptor when I get my hands on one)

 

So following the guide and some troubleshooting tips I get to the same spot each time, it appears to be at the point where the system wants to start the GUI for the install screens, however the monitor goes off into sleep mode and is receiving no signal.

 

From verbose mode the last thing I managed to see appeared to be MCDOS has arrived, the line that appeared under it vanished too quickly to read and I was presented with the power saved screen once again.

 

If anyone has any ideas what this could be I would be very grateful for any help.

 

as an additional note Bios settings have been configured to disable VT-d , disk configurations to AHCI , primary video device to Onboard and shared Video Memory to 128 (this was seen in a previous troubleshoot for using the onboard Intel GPU)

 

Cheers

Bakerman

      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself

      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)

      Hello

      I have a laptop HP EliteBook 840 G2 - Core i5 5300U - 2.3 GHz and graphic card intel HD5500 and installed a SIERRA , but the definition of the graphics card is not installed

      Dear all,
       
      I have a external harddisk about 500GB, I installed the clover into it and the harddisk is GPT format, below is the 3 partitions details:
      FS01: EFI - disk0s1 - fat32
      FS02: install mac  image - disk0s2 -  hfs+
      FS03: install windows 10 - disk0s3 - fat32
       
      I can use this external harddisk to install Mac without issue, I use below steps to install windows 10
      enter the FS03:
      cd to efi/boot/ and excuete bootx64.efi
      after pop up the windows install screen, i click next and it shows error 'A media driver your computer needs is missing...' and the installation can not go any further.
      Firstly I use ultraiso to write the windows 10 image to a flash disk and no issue to start install window 10 so the image is working fine. Since I dont know how to write
      a wiindow installation image into harddisk partition, I used winrar extra all the files into disk0s3, am I missing some steps or actually clover not support to install windows
      by partitions, apprecating any helps.

      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - 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 stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      On Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw to modify System/Library. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       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       5.  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).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      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)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!

      I just made a clean install of High Sierra on a 1TB crucial ssd. Installed clover Clover_v2.5k_r5070 into the EFI of this ssd, but when I tried to make it my default boot drive, the clover screen wouldn't come up, and left a black screen.
      I tried using the Olarilia usb drive and clover did the same thing.  The only way I can currently boot is to use my old drive with clover v2.4k_4945 then select  my new drive from the clover menu.   
       
      Do I need to install v2.4k on my new drive or is there a way I can get v2.5k working?
       
      I have a GA-x79-ud5 motherboard, AMD  rx580 graphics card and use a Sony 4k tv as my monitor.
