Ok so, until now I did not get the HD 6450 to work...

 

With patched framebuffer I don't get a black screen, but no GUI is coming up either. It's just like I'm still in verbose mode. The same happens when I do not inject the card.

 

Weird thing is that at that point, I can't establish a remote connection but if I remove the AMD kexts (and thus being able to boot to desktop) I can. 

 

---

 

Edit:

 

some progress.

 

I am able to boot to desktop in native resolution with my patched frame buffer:

 

 dp,hdmi,vga

00 04 00 00 04 03 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 12 04 01 05 00 00 00 00 00 08 00 00 04 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 11 02 04 03 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 00
to

hdmi,dvi-dl,vga

00 08 00 00 04 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 11 02 04 03 00 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 14 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 00 02 04 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 00 
 

No Acceleration though...

I really wonder what exactly did change...

I am able to boot, I have native resolution, I am able to change the resolution. It's just that I don't have acceleration.

I tried to replace the 10.13 graphics kexts with the ones from 10.12.6, but that did not make any difference...

By the way: I am almost sure that the issue I have regarding to WebKit crashing is graphics related. I've had the HD 6450 in for a while and did not get any crashes whatsoever. I placed the GT 710 back et voila: it crashes  :hysterical:

Only as info for the AMD problem:

The problem is not just for Hackintosh. My real MacPro3,1 with real HD5770 also Blackscreen. Only works without kext and without QE/CI.
With Sierra everything works.
With High Sierra - Blackscreen.
 
I hope the next beta's works better.

What about Lotus?

 

Also, what says :

 

 

ioreg | grep AMD

 

@MacPeet

 

I didn't succeed to boot on HS with a Radeon HD 5450 either btw. Not an Optiplex but same problem.

 

@Chris1111

 

Your cards are all UEFI, are they?

In the past I only got success with Ipomoea. I will try Lotus (and other FBs) tonight  :yes:

 

All relevant kexts were loaded by the way

The idea UEFI is good, but my real HD5770 in the real MacPro3,1 also has EFI bios and does not work anymore.
 
I've already tried rollback from Sierra, does not work either.
The problem is probably in coredisplay.framework.

Meaning AMDRadeonX300.kext, right?

Yes. AMDRadeonX3000, AMD6000Controller, AMDSupport etc were loaded correctly (The card is not plugged in atm, so I can't show you  :P)

Yep, I think so. We must wait next DP2 I guess.

 

That said, I'm still trying to understand why it works for Chris1111 and fails for us :wacko:… It's non-sense to me !

 

Yes. AMDRadeonX3000, AMD6000Controller, AMDSupport etc were loaded correctly (The card is not plugged in atm, so I can't show you  :P)

 

Another non-sense :rolleyes:. Everythings works but actually, it doesn't :lol: !

 

Thxs anyway :).

@polyzargone

Quite clearly, with Chris1111 it works because he has an i5 with helper iGPU.
Whether UEFI or not.
Without Helper-iGPU, we have the problem.

High Sierra: maybe its time to say goodby for all socket 775 macs without igpus :bye:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the problem just with AMD cards?

Not necessarily. Needs tests.

 

I'd rather say it's time to say goodbye to a lot of old AMD/NVIDIA cards :(.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the problem just with AMD cards?

 

Yep. I also think so.

 

Again, we need more tests…

I dont think so -  It just such a feeling. But Apple is well-known for cut down old pigtails :whistle:

 

I would not be surprised if it will come so.

FYI, I heard some reports that an old Dell D630 laptop (Core2Duo T9300 NVIDIA QUADRO NVS 135M) runs HS fine.

 

I'm sure it'll will work on my D830 rig as well since it has the same specs ;).

OK.

 

Could you run the attached script (make sure EFI is mounted and that the Clover_Report folder is in your Downloads folder) :

Okay, here are the report from the script you attached. Still getting nowhere  :(

High Sierra supports the iMac 2009, Macbook 2009, Mac mini 2010 etc. All running on pretty old C2Ds.

 

Well, I'm looking for a Optiplex 790 or 990 to replace my NEC anyway  :P

      Questo è il thread in italiano dedicato alla mia app TINU, l'app open source che ho creato per creare chiavetta di installazione di mac utilizzando il metodo "createinstallmedia".
      Il nome è l'acronimo di TINU Is Not U (Per le regole del forum devo censurare, ma la U si riferisce ad un programma che piu o meno svolge lo stesso scopo che per buoni motivi è bandita su questo sito, il punto del metterlo nel nome sta nel sottolineare che la mia app è totalmente diversa)
      L'app è pensata per essere molto semplice ed immediata da usare (con un interfaccia grafica progettata con criteri e metodi usati in ambito professionale per lo sviluppo di applicazioni utente) e per essere molto solida e stabile che funziona sempre al primo colpo (a differenza di altri tool che conosciamo ...)
       
      A livello funzionale quest'app non è altro che un interfaccia grafica per il metodo da terminale "createinstallmedia" che viene sfrutatto dalla stessa per creare la chiavetta, quindi le chiavette create con TINU sono chiavette al 100% vanilla come se le aveste create dal terminale, l' applicazione, rispatto al metodo da terminale, aggiunge però funzioni utili come il controllo ed il riconoscimento di errori nel processo, la formattazione automatica della chiavetta USB che si sceglie di usare in formato Mac OS Extended (journaled) (detto anche HFS+) con mapatura di partizione GUID, ed anche altre opzioni personalizzabili o disattivabili come l'applicare un icona alla chiavetta di instalalzione.
      Tra gli altri vantaggi troviamo il fatto che permette di creare chiavette utilizzando qualunque applicazione di mac che contiene l'eseguibile "createinstallmedia" inclusi installer delle beta ed installer appena rilasciati, e non richiede di fare cose particolari prima come formattare la chiavetta e cambiare lingua al sistema e puo utilizzare applicazioni di mac che si trovano in varie directory nel sistema e non solo quelle che stanno nella cartella delle applicazioni ed hanno un nome specifico (nota che l'applicazione di installazione di mac deve essere quella interacche pesa diversi gb e non quella da pochi mb che l'app store puo scaricare alcune volte e che non contiene tutto quello che serve per permettere a createinstallmedia di funzionare)
       
      Tra l;e altre cose quest'app è l'unica app di questo genere sviluppata e che continua ad essere sviluppata in Italia ed è anche l'unica completamente open source.
       
      Trovate qui alcuni link utili:
       - Scarica l'app:                                                  https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases
       - Codice sorgente dell'app:                                 https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU
       
       - FAQs (Domande fatte di frequente, in inglese):   https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs
       
       - Thread in inglese su tinu (English thread about TINU): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/326959-tinu-the-macos-install-media-creation-tool-mac-app/
       
      Qui invece ci sono un paio di guide (Anche se l'app è molto facile da usare):
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per un hackintosh:                                   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug1yBZybpD4
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per creare cheiavette per Mac "originali":    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOZOUt2ErM
       
       
      Pianifico molte altre nuove funzioni per future versioni dell'app (vedi il thread in inglese per saperne di più)
       
       
      Il supporto a clover in TINU è pianificato per una versione futura, anche se dei protipi a livvello codice per renderlo possibile, sono gia stati sperimentati con successo.
       
      Spero che anche voi del forum italiano aprezzerete questa app come gli utenti del forum inglese, per idee e suggerimenti, siete liberi di esprimervi :-)

      ///////////////////////////////////////////
       

       
      1 - Preparando PENBOOT:
        1.1 - Baixe a imagem do Sierra e deixe na pasta "Applications";
        1.2 - Formate o PenDrive e altere o nome para: "MyVolume";
        1.3 - Abra o Terminal e digite a seguinte linha de código, dê enter e quando solicitado digite sua senha. Aguarde o término da instalação, geralmente demora em torno de 20min:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app  
       
      1.4 - Baixe a última versão do Clover EFI bootloader: Download
        1.5 - Abra o Clover, na última etapa, clique em Customize, depois marque a opção "Install for UEFI booting only", como na imagem abaixo:

       
        1.6 - Provavelmente a partição "EFI" estará montada, abra a partição e substitua a pasta "CLOVER" por esta CLOVER Asus X99 Deluxe II - Sierra.zip.
       
      2 - Configurando BIOS
        2.1 - Atualize sua BIOS para a versão mais recente, a minha é: 1902
        2.2 - Reset as configurações de sua BIOS em: Exit/Load Optimized Defaults;
        2.3 - Vá para: Boot/CMS (Compatibility Support Module)/Launch CMS: ENABLED;
        2.4 - Vá para: Boot/Secure Boot/OS Type: Other OS;
       
      3 - Instalando OS
        3.1 - Ligue o computador com o Pendrive espetado, ele automaticamente irá iniciar o Clover, caso isso não aconteça, na tela inicial da ASUS, pressione F8 para escolher o pendrive como boot primário;
        3.2 - Em algum momento futuro, seu clover pode não arrancar corretamente, caso isso aconteça, na tela inicial do CLOVER pressione F11 para limpar o NVRAM, ele irá reiniciar a máquina automaticamente, em seguida voltará a arrancar normalmente;
       
      4 - PÓS-INSTALAÇÃO
        4.1 - Inicie seu MAC temporariamente pelo Pendrive como boot primário;
        4.2 - Instale o clover seguindo as etapas 1.4, 1.5 e 1.6 . Apenas não esqueça de alterar o destino para o HD Interno com a instalação do Sierra.
        4.3 - Feito isso, reinicie seu mac, agora sem o pendrive;
       
      5 - VÍDEO
        5.1 - Na pasta CLOVER que anexei acima, já possui as kexts NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext e Lilu.kext ;
        5.2 - Baixe e instale o nVidia Web Driver(Download) de acordo com a versão do seu OS;
        5.3 - A minha versão, por exemplo, é: "macOS 10.12.6 (16G1408)";
        5.4 - Veja abaixo onde encontrar sua versão:

       
      Obs.: Existe um bug no vídeo, caso queira utilizar a entrada DVI, é preciso iniciar a máquina já com o cabo plugado, caso contrário ele deixará sua tela preta e não voltará mais ao normal até que reinicie a máquina.
       
        5.5 - INSTALANDO O CUDA:
           1 - A última versão não funcionou, então baixei a penúltima e funcionou perfeitamente. A versão instalada foi: CUDA 387.178 driver for MAC.

       
       
      6 - ÁUDIO
        6.1 - Baixe o Voodoo HDA 2.9.0 Clover (Download)
        6.2 - Siga as etapas das imagens que estão dentro do anexo;
       
       
      Não solucionado:
      Não consigo habilitar a placa ThunderboltEX 3;
       
       
      Valeu.
