[GUIDE] Installing macOS on ASUS K501L

92 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there !
First of all, I want to thank you for your awesome guide, it helped me a lot :D

Then I got a few questions about this hackintosh.

Before I ask you those questions, here's my computer's configuration : 
Asus K501LX with an i5 5200U, GTX 950M, 1TB HDD and 12Gigs of RAM. My bundled wifi isn't working so I ordered the one you took in the guide.

The first minor issue is about the screen right after booting. My screen is "striated" and unusable... until I close the laptop and open it after about 10sec. Yup, that's strange. When connected to HDMI, the integrated screen is "striated" but the external looks normal. It did this during the installation too. So I wondered if you had this problem and maybe how to solve it. (Iv'e attached a picture of the phenomenon during the OS X installation process)

The second question is about updating to Sierra. I know you tried and then got back to El Capitan because mouse and Keyboard aren't fully supported, but I don't really care about this kind of details. Anyway, so I wanted to update to Sierra but Clover doesn't find the "Install macOS" option. So I updated Clover to the lastest version available, I installed it properly but when I hit enter, either on the "Install macOS" option or on the El Capitan partition, it won't boot.
To be more precise, It shows the Apple logo, no loading bar appears, and then it quickly reboots, that's really strange. I tried almost everything, editing the config.plist, updating the Kexts etc... none of those solutions works.

 

Then I got one last question about the touchpad : every gesture is working, even with 3 fingers for the launchpad etc... But I can't scroll with two fingers. The option is ticked in "System Preferences > Trackpad" and other two fingers gesture like the right click are working. I'm pretty sure that the Kext are installed properly.

Hope we can get those little things working,

Arkisto

Hello Im happy to see your guide... good work :thumbsup_anim:

I have an ASUS k751l  with  i7 broadwell u cpu and Intel HD graphics 5500

 

Does following your tutorial would work for me?

thanks..

 

Look at the first post. I already stated that any model other than K501LX/K501LB should use this guide as reference only.

- About the first issue, try to enable CSM in BIOS settings.

- I don't recommend upgrade to Sierra yet, as some of the hardware/functions are not working well on Sierra. You are responsible for your own actions.

- For the last issue, you can try to change the scrolling speed, untick and retick two finger scrolling and see if it worked.

Oh nice, I haven't tried Sierra with this method, I tried with a [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] stick but I had graphical issues (no blur effect and bad resolution)...
May I ask you which kexts you used for your installation ? The ones in this guide or the lastests versions downloaded somewhere ?

Glad to hear this Success installation

1- Update clover bootloader to last version to make USB Sierra installation after instal copy past the clover partition from Usb to efi partition on disk

2- remove all Kext number keep other kext only in usb and efi partition after install

3-Change Pre-DVMT Allocated to 64/128MB in BIOS settings.

4-Use SwitchResX if you want to switch to custom HiDPI resolution3

I made the Sierra USB without problems, but sometimes it won't show the sierra installation option and when it shows, le computer reboots on the Apple logo (verbose mode just shows a line of "+" symbols.

Looks like it's a config.plist problem, Ive tried some fixes but it doesn't work. Can you upload yours ?

Mmmmh...
For some reason when booting from the USB, It doesn't show any Mac OS system, neither my internal El Capitan HDD or the macOS Sierra install. I'm searching around internet for a solution.

Oh, and btw, just received my new Wi-Fi chip, and it works like a charm, that's awesome.

 

If you have any suggestion, I'll take it :D

EDIT : Got one last problem to get a really perfect installation : the sleep mode. When the computer enter the sleep mode, the LED won't turn off and there's no way to get out of sleep, I need to force the shutdown with the power button.

Okay guys, glad to announce that I'm actually posting from Sierra. Everything works great except some minor issues that I'm working on. 
If someone wonders what was the solution to my problems, it was only one file missing in my clover installation : "HFSPlus.efi". So I just downloaded it and put the file in EFI/Clover/drivers64efi

Thanks everyone for the help and good luck !

Hi, i've just installed macOS Sierra on my ASUS K501LB-DM127D

 

Everything work great except the internal microphone. In the System Information, it said that my internal microphone had been connected. But I couldn't see the Internal Microphone in the Sound section of the System Preferences. 

 

Here's the screenshot of my System Information and System Preferences: http://imgur.com/jwrlmRq

 

ASUS K501LB - DM127D / Intel Core i3 - 5010u / 4GB Ram/ 500GB HDD / Realtek ALC233 / Intel HD 5500 + GT 940M / macOS Sierra 10.12.1

Could you send me your codec dump? (Please read here to know how to get codec dump from Linux).

Btw I haven't installed & tested Sierra on my own laptop yet so there could be updates to AppleHDA that broke the dummy kext.

I'm to buy a Asus k501ux

in your opinion, it is compatible with this guide ???

 

With some modifications this is possible

 

Not some, but quite a bunch of modifications in kext & config.plist, since k501ux uses Skylake CPU, not Broadwell. So I will say it is incompatible with this guide, but you can use it as a reference source.  :no:

I'm going to update the installation pack to version 2.0, together with guide and videos. There are many things to be edited, so it may take a week to complete.

 

Notable changes:

- Hotpatch will become the official method of ACPI patching.

- macOS Sierra will be officially supported.

- K501LB model will receive the same support as K501LX.

 

Due to these changes, the GitHub repository will be renamed to mac-os-k501l. The repository, together with wiki is being updated.  :lol:

 

Also the version naming scheme is modified: As this version contains breaking changes, so I named it v2.0 instead of v1.1. v1.0.1 will be changed to v1.1, and from now on every version will have the format of major.minor:rofl:

 

Cheers,

Hello guys! First time posting here, but not completely new to building a hackintosh.

 

I tried installing MacOS on my laptop, and after a day I got most of it running. I run a Asus-k501lx. I only have some problems:

 

- Ethernet is not working, except in static mode. When just booting the system while having DHCP selected, the ethernet connection says that there is no connection and no IP-address. However ifconfig reports that it has an IP address. After some minutes (2-3), the network preference pane will report that it has an IP address, a DNS etcetera. But I still can't connect to the internet. I can't even ping the router, so it is not a DNS problem. I tried to install Realtek drivers, but it still has the same behaviour.

 

- The fn buttons for brightness do not work.

 

- Can I change the trackpad settings? I want to disable edge scrolling and enable two finger scrolling, also tap to click does not work.

 

Can somebody give me some directions, after I couldn't find more information after a day of searching.

I found the ethernet problem, I was using an access point in client mode to provide internet. Normally, you can disable the DHCP server to use the DHCP server of the router (it does work on Linux, Windows or on my other hackintosh). Apparently, that doesn't work with the kext. So I enabled the dhcp server of the access point and it seems to be working now.

 

If you are remaking the guide, I would also add that you should enable CSM, otherwise you screen sometimes glitches and you get random crashes.

Are you using macOS Sierra? If so, then install ApplePS2SmartTouchpad v4.7 beta 5.

Yes, I will note about enabling CSM in my updated guide, thank you.  ^_^

During the previous weeks I was busy with tests and projects at my university, so I did not have time to work with the next release. Now the semester has finished, I will resume my work ASAP.  ^_^

Btw, what is the problem with backlight in macOS 10.12.4? Can someone give me some info about this?

      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

      Ethernet: I219V2, I211-AT
      WiFi & Bluetooth: Broadcom BCM94360HMB Half-Mini-PCI-E
      More Specs: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-DELUXE/specifications/
       
      Catalina 10.15.3 - Windows 10
      What is working:
      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) No problem so far ASUS HyperKit with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB  
      What is not working:
      -  
       
      Not tested:
      VideoProc says that Hardware Decoding\Encoding is fully supported and enabled on both HD 530 and RX 5700 but I didn't test it Thunderbolt (no equipment)  
      Issues:
      None  
      BIOS Settings:
      Boot\CSM (Compatibility Support Module): Launch CSM: Disabled Boot\Secure Boot: OS type: Other OS Secure Boot State: Disabled Advanced\System agent (sa) Configuration: VT-d: Enabled Graphics Configuration: Primary Display: Auto iGPU Multi-monitor: Enabled RC6(Render Standby): Enabled DVMT Pre-Allocated: 128M Advanced\PCH Storage Configuration: SATA Mode Selection: AHCI HyperKit: Enable (if you have NVMe SSD with ASUS HyperKit) Advanced\CPU Configuration: Intel Virtualization Technology: Enabled CPU- Power Management Control: Intel SpeedStep: Enabled CPU- C-States: Enabled Intel SpeedShift: Enabled  
      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5098): Click here -> ASUS-Z170_catalina.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 have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:
       

       




       
       
       
      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)  
      Notes:
       
      2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing
      2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list
      2020.01.12: Tested system with OC, added more informations to BIOS settings
      2020.01.11: Added SmallTreeIntel82576.kext for 2nd Ethernet, Tested Ethernet ports
      2020.01.11: First upload
