Same CPU I’ve been using for a year. No problems Linux boots fine, windows operates correctly. Bios shows emt64 support. I guess I’ll try another CPU I have.

It won't work with an iMac14,2 SMBios! Plus, your CLOVER folder is a mess, especially in the /kexts folder!

 

Try this one and report back please :

Hmm…

 

I see no 'DSMOS has arrived' in you verbose screens… Looks like FakeSMC.kext isn't loading for whatever reason. That could explain why you're stuck (not sure the 'Cpu has no EMT64 support' error is the problem :unsure:).

 

You could try this one in CLOVER/kexts/Other : https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-fakesmc-kozlek/downloads/

I did not have it anymore but I had given it to you and if you were probably using it you could easily succeed because I have this Graphics card too in an Optiplex 790

 do not upload the same file every week I'm wondering why not use it

That's better!

 

Now, DSMOS has arrived :)

 

Is this SSD or USB boot?

USB boot. SSD stayed same with no DSMOS

Thinking about upgrading my video card. I though Radeon HD 6450 was OOB in High Sierra? 

 

I see other threads where some are having problems.

 

My Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 cards required nothing extra when upgrading to High Sierra on my Optiplex 790 and 990.

My Sapphire HD 6450 indeed worked OOB on default FB under Sierra. Did not test the card in High Sierra on the 790, so I can't tell if it will or won't work.  On my 755 it did not, however that's most likely because the 755 has no helper card and i did not bother to roll back kexts  :blush:

Hello Friends

I am creating another Hackintosh. One i created few month ago was a huge success and now i am trying to upgrade..

My specs are

 

Sys Specs: DELL OptiPlex 780 (Tower).  Intel Core2Quad QQ400, 8GB DDR3, NVDIA Geforce 210 1GB
Bootloader: Clover latest, Mac OS High Sierra 10.13, 

 

I managed to install Hackintosh . Sound, wake, sleep and shutdown works fine. I have not tested Ethernet yet. 
I am having issues with Graphics Card, it is showing 3MB only. 

I have installed using same Old USB, i created for my last build and i just used Boot flag nv_disable=1 to get it working but Graphics performance is very poor. I have tried installing NVDIA Web drivers but they are not working.

 

Can any body please share some good kexts or resources for NvDIA Geforce 210 (1GB) graphics card.

I also have two other spare graphics card. Nvdia Geforce GF120 and ATI Radeon HD7450 and i can go with those cards as well ..

Hi new problem. I just swapped out the HDD in my Optiplex 780 Hack with a 240 GB SSD. Formatted the SSD as HSF+ Journaled, used CCC to clone the HDD, copied over the entire EFI partition. Powered up, and just got a blinking cursor. Restarted with F12, selected the SSD, but the machine just kind of froze. The SSD remained highlighted, but the arrows would move the highlight cursor any more (though it beeped every time I tried). Any thoughts on what I've done wrong?

You can't just copy the entire EFI partition, you also need to install Clover in Legacy mode (boot0af or boot0ss) on it. Then, you can replace - not merge - the installed CLOVER folder with your own CLOVER folder.

Duh. Feeling pretty stupid right now. I knew that. It's just been awhile. Thanks, I'll update once I've tended to that little detail.

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.
      BaseSystem_PLK.tool_ElCap.zip
