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.

Of course, you were right. Installed Clover, THEN copied over the EFI folder, and everything is working like a charm. Sorry to have been an idiot, and thanks for setting me straight.

Hello all, 

I need assistance in getting my GIGABYTE GeForce GT 1030 DirectX 12 GV-N1030OC-2GI 2GB running. 

I've installed the latest Nvidia Web Driver and it's set to use Nvidia Graphic Driver but the video is choppy so I'm assuming its not running with acceleration.  It's only reporting 7mb of vram.

Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixUp are in my kext folder.  NvidiaWeb is set to true in clover.  Tried with and without nvda_drv=1.

Attached is my clover folder.  Thank you!

@chris1111, I looked at your config file for the GT1030 but I'm wondering why you have a fake id set for ATI?  Using your DSDT, it causes a no signal.

@9000RPM AFAIK you only need the WebDrivers, nothing more. Booting with nvda_drv=1 is obsolete, 

The fake id for ATI is for the 5450 and shouldn't affect your nvidia card as long as you don't inject ATI. 

Furthermore (not related to your question), you're using NullCPUPowermanagement.kext, but why? You're patching it in your config.plist already.
Same goes for RTC

@ricoc90, I don't see a NullCPUPowermanagemnt.kext in my kext folder.  I do have "AppleIntelCPUM" checked in clover otherwise I get this error message and hangs there.j46Xyd7.jpg

It worked fine without this back in El Capitan.

@polyzargone Thank you but using your DSDT, SSDT and config, I get a few errors.

1st. Your config doesn't have appleintelcpumanagement checked so I always get that error message.  see above image.
2nd.  Enabling appleintelcpumanagement solves the boot problem and using your DSDT, I see a line about the Nvidia web driver being loaded but after clover, I get a no signal.
3rd.  Using my original DSDT, I don't see Nvidia web driver being loaded the login screen loads but it's only 7mb of vram.

 

Also, not sure what else I need from your linked Clover folder but Drivers64UEFI folder is missing.

1st. Unless I'm mistaken, you shouldn't need AppleIntelCPUM in config.plist nor NULLCPUPowerManagement.kext. Your CPU should have native support.

Anyway, if it works then use one of them or both.

2nd. 'No signal' probably mean that SMBios is wrong. Optiplex series used to work with iMac10,1 but it looks like that those who have NVIDIA GPUs has this problem. I guess using iMac12,2 or possibly iMac14,2 will solve the issue.

As for the missing Driver64UEFI folder, I'd say it's a recurrent mistake in every Optiplex 7xx/9xx I've seen so far since none of these models has a UEFI Bios. Therefore, the Drivers64UEFI folder is never used so it's not needed :P.

I did read up on the pascal graphics card and others were saying to use the imac15 or imac17, but neither of those worked 

Another guide said to make sure "emuvariableuefi-64" was in the folder, so how do I get it if that folder is never used?

I might start with a fresh install of High Sierra and see what happens. I've put back 5770 for now. 

Thanks

I would advise anyone using dual display on their hackintosh to NOT update to 10.13.4 as it breaks this feature!! I am using a GT710 nvidia card.

I do not use NULLCPUPowerManagement.kext.

I do use AppleIntelCPUM option in Clover. 

Maybe not always needed with a compatible smbios, but I use it, or I get a panic.

According to WiKi Page...

AppleIntelCPUPM

<key>AppleIntelCPUPM</key>

<true/>

AsusAICPUPM key was renamed to AppleIntelCPUPM.

Some vendors, like ASUS, restrict the use of MSR register 0xE2 in their power management module to ReadOnly. On Sandy/Ivy Bridge systems the kext AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement will try to write to this register and cause a kernel panic. This patch will eliminate the kext's write operations.

I'm also using the GT 710 and dual monitor is working fine (DVI and HDMI), as it always did (currently running 10.13.5 beta)

Ricoc, Thanks for the update. I tested my monitors using DVI  & hdmi and you are correct, these do work. My original config was VGA & DVI and it does seem that the update does break VGA. When I tested my system using just one monitor through VGA my monitor is getting no signal!!

@Deanor30  VGA also should work, so the problem must be somewhere else.
I'm using a 17" VGA monitor on the Optiplex 755 (also GT 710, also High Sierra) without problems.

Spoiler

Make sure that your VGA monitor has the correct resolution and enable duallink if you're on high resolution, or disable it if you're on low resolution.
Anyway, this conversation should be moved to the High Sierra thread :)

ricoc90, Can I ask what audio method you are using. Since I updated my audio has stopped working despite updating clover, lilu.kext & applealc.kext.

On which system? The codec for the 755 is not in the AppleALC release, you'll need the one from post #1

For the 760 you'll need to rollback AppleHDA.kext

Well, the 755 doesn't need any rollback. That is, if you don't use an AMD GPU of course.
The 755 doesn't need the AppleHDA rollback.

The 780 does need the AppleHDA rollback according to MacPeet and since the 760 shares the same codec I assume the 760 needs a rollback too

But indeed, it's getting pretty hard for these older machines to keep up on the newer macOS's :D

Ricoc90, Apologies, the issue is with the 760 so I need to roll back to the vanilla applehda.kext or use a modified one?? Also the layout of my DSDT file was edited for the Applealc.kext method so do I have to roll this back also? I am a bit of a novice on this!

No, you need to replace your AppleHDA.kext with the one from 10.13.3 (maybe the one from Sierra will work too?). Nothing more. Leave your DSDT as is, leave AppleALC as is.

10.13.3's AppleHDA.kext: AppleHDA.kext.zip

Install in /System/Library/Extensions/

But again: this conversation should actually be moved to the High Sierra thread :lol:

Just an update to my GT 1030 issue:

I moved the computer to my office and hooked it up to my 2 1080P monitors.  I decided to use the GT 1030 again so I re-installed the webdrivers, lilu.kext, and nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext.  This time, I got it working on first boot.

The only thing different from before was that it was hooked up to a 4k TV in my bedroom.  I will try to hook it up to the 4k TV again and see if it still works.

But now I have no HDMI audio.  Haven't really looked into it yet. 

Cheers

I  not use  nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext with the GT 1030 and yes HDMI has change in Beta 10.13.5, see AppleALC for this

Thanks for letting me know about the AppleALC...I'll look into it. 

I "fixed" my audio issue with a spare CSR 4.0 bluetooth dongle laying around and I was surprised it was a simple plug-n-play in Sierra.

      I don't know whether my LAN device will work on MAC and Which version of mac but i still want to run MAC on my PC, Also i checked my CPU-GPU and it turned out that i can Run MAX High sierra but i realized that some people have trouble with Sound and Internet connection so Here's the NAME of my LAN device:
       
      PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_012310EC&REV_05\4&45F2A70&0&00E1 as (LAN DEVICE took the name from device manager in  windows). 
      also from compatibleIds i got this:
      PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&REV_05
       
      Is it Supported on any version of macOS ?

      I have been running macOS Mojave on my system for 3 months and everything was working pretty well.  After taking an update for clover, my entire system got wrecked, and I cannot even boot to an installation environment anymore (which I really need to do since I am starting back at square one).  I still have the old EFI folder backed up, but I know it'll only be a matter of time before Apple introduces an update that requires me to update Clover in order to work correctly.  I have tried all the available memory fixes, but none of them seem to work.  I was previously using the original osxaptiofix; so, I gave v2, and v3 a try, but to no success.  I read somewhere on the main discussion board for clover that AptioMemoryFix was no longer going to be supported and I therefor decided to skip over it (not to mention it isn't even available in newer clover installation packages).
       
      System specs:
      Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 M GAMING
      CPU Intel core i5 9600k @ stock 3.7GHz
      RAM 32GB DDR4 2667MHz
      GPU AMD Radeon RX 580 with 8GB of GDDR5
      SSD Intel 660p 512GB NVME
      NIC: Intel i210 10/100/1000 as it is natively supported in macOS
       
      I have been using the iMac 19,1 SMBIOs as I built this machine to match it as close as humanly possible.  As for my UEFI settings, I did the usual:
      Disabled Windows specific features and secure boot
      Enabled XHCI hand off
      Enabled Above 4G decoding
      Disabled onboard NIC since it is made irrelevant by my intel i210
       
      --INJECT KEXTS--
      FakeSMC
      Lilu
      WhateverGreen
      AppleALC
      USBInjectAll -- WITH PATCHED SSDT in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched
      Below are images of the errors I am receiving when trying to boot the macOS Mojave installer.
       
      with original osxaptiomemoryfix

       
      osxaptiofixv2

       
      osxaptiofixv3

       
      Anyway, if somebody can help me figure out what's going on, that'd be greatly appreciated.  My ultimate goal is to get an install with minimal clover patches as to be better prepared when the winds of change from Apple come roaring.
       
      p.s: I have also attached a copy of my EFI folder

      Clover r4989 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4989 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4989-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      Hello,
       
      I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
       
      For installation I used this Thread.
       
      I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
       
      Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
       
      My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
      Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use  Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
       
      Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
       
      About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
       
      regards
      JackBauer24
