[Guide] macOS Sierra 10.12 - Dell Optiplex 780 (760) (755) (790) (990)

I'm at a loss. I've got a 780 but I can't even get clover to load. Using the newest installer r4558. I followed the instructions, installed clover to ESP and the boot0af option. I've tried two USB keys and neither work. Boot from USB is allowed in the BIOS and AHCI behavior is selected for SATA. My bios battery is low so first I see "press f1 to continue, press f2 to enter setup" so I press f1 and the cursor blinks until I get frustrated and leave. Any suggestions?

 

Edit: Fixed this issue by using another author's *beastly* USB sierra creation option. Now I'm running Sierra on a Dell with no issues.Many thanks, @MacPeet!

Look in this guide....

 

Step 8, and then under that subsection, step 7 starts with opening Config in clover configurator.

This is a copy of a message I sent to MacPeet on May 14. It is for AppleALC on an Optiplex 755.

 

"I installed the custom AppleALC that you posted on your macOS Sierra page. This worked well on 10.12.6 (for the entire brief time) before installing the 2018 security updates, but after the security update there was a kernel panic, and disabling the injection of AppleALC resolved the kernel panic. Installing the AppleALC from the High Sierra page works quite well on 10.12.6 for the line-in/headphone ports (auto-detects; no crackling or noise), but the microphone port (at least on the front; did not test the back line-out/microphone port) did not work with a known good mic. Again, this is for a Dell OptiPlex 755.

Mainly, I am hoping to get 755 support into the main line of AppleALC, since pasting your plist edits into the stock kexts doesn't ever work for me. I am curious if you customize them beyond just the plist entries.

I can test any further custom kexts or new releases of AppleALC stock. Keep in mind though that I am on macOS 10.12.6.

Thanks for the guide; the DSDT seems to work perfectly."

Hi 

 

I'm having some trouble with the sound on my 780, I've followed the guide and everything is working fine apart from the audio. I used the DSDT from MacPeet my_Optiplex_DSDT but there is no sound. I then added Apple HDA & AppleALC along with the patches (I entered using clover configurator) but still no sound. If I go to System report - Audio - Devices it reports Intel High Definition Audio, Audio ID: 11 but there are no input or output devices in System Preferences  - sound. 

 

Can anybody help !

 

Thanks

@mac_hack

very beautiful

Bootflag-alcbeta and -lilubetaall is not needed with Sierra.
This is only necessary with the current OSX Mojave beta's.

I'm running into an issue. I get all the way to the installer and when I select MacOS installer and choose continue, nothing happens. I try to open terminal, nothing. Disk Utility, nothing. This happens with both the Sierra and High Sierra installers. I have El Capitan installed with no issue, but I'm trying to get on the latest version.

Okay. so back to trying to solve the No Video after wake from sleep problem. One card is working with a 790 Sierra Install, the other install was Yosemite on an Optiplex 780 that never had El Capitan on it. 

 

These Video cards were bought a little over a year apart, but this is basically what I have. Sapphire Radeon HD5450, 1GB, DDR3.

 

 

e0lh6s.jpg

 

 

Okay, so after going nuts trying different DSDT's and settings in Clover, I wondered, could the cards not be 100% identical?

 

So I took the Video Card from the 780 that had no video after wake from sleep in Sierra, and swapped it with the card in the 790 that had video after waking from sleep.

 

Booted up the 790, put the computer into sleep, then woke it up and.... No Video! Okay, tried it a couple more times, and after waking from sleep, no video. So the cards are different!

 

Okay, so what is the difference? I switched over to my Windows 10 partition, and used Gpuz to take a look at the cards.

 

Here is the card that has video when waking from sleep:

Shut down, swap cards, reboot. Here is the card that does not have video when waking from sleep:

 

 

25oupmb.gif

 

 

Notice any difference? The bios version is different! Hmmm, could it be that simple? 

 

Okay, so I used ATI Winflash, and pulled off a copy of the bios from the working card. Then swapped cards, rebooted into Windows 10,

 

saved a copy of the bios from the card that didn't have video after waking from sleep, and now flashed it with the bios from the card that was working.

 

Okay, now I rebooted into my Sierra partition on my Optiplex 790. Put the computer in sleep mode. Okay, could it really be this easy? 

 

I tapped the space bar on the computer, it started to wake up, and after a few seconds....... Boom, Video! :)

 

Okay, now take that same card and put it in my 780 with the fresh Sierra install, loaded the DSDT from Post #1. 

 

Booted the computer up, put it to sleep, tapped on the keyboard, and wallah!  Video!!!   :thumbsup_anim:

 

Bios that works:  Wakes From Sleep.zip

 

I know this is the Sierra and not High Sierra guide but I was wondering if this BIOS works with High Sierra as I'm having sleep issues.

 

I installed 10.13.6 on my 780 with Sapphire 5450 1GB and flashed the 5450 BIOS from above. Sleep still not working, it wakes the computer but not the monitor. Any ides? I attached my files below.

 

SPECS:

Optiplex 780 Mini Tower (latest A15 BiIOS)

Q9400 Core 2 Quad CPU

Sapphire AMD 5450 Video Card 1GB

Mac OSX 10.13.6

The bios worked fine with Sierra, and with High Sierra. Wake from sleep with video.

 

I have moved on to Mojave and now using Gagabyte 710, so cannot test config, but I looked at my old Sierra configs, and I had, Slide = 0, and Kext-Dev-Mode =1, both checked. Not sure if that matters.

 

You could also try Darkwake = 1, and make sure you are using the correct DSDT, as there have been edits along the way.

Hi, I have a 790sff latest bios with i3 2100, gt710, Realtek WiFi dongle running with drivers. 

What DSDT do I need?

 

thanks guys

 

 

Send me Alfies-iMac.zip

Beware if you are using USB dongle for wifi, sleep/wake function might not work properly. I suffered with that with my optiplex 780.

When that happens to me, I click on Choose Language, then just choose whatever language, click okay, go back to the install screen, and it will let you continue.

The on the fly method is old.

Dell Optiplex 790/990 has ALC269 and works with AppleALC + Lilu with LayoutID 15 (ManualMode) or 16 (SwitchMode).

I suspect Dell Optiplex 960 too.

I did try to install Sierra using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Successful but no drivers yet since i skipped [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].

Im planning to use clover config to install the kexts on this forum.

Problem is its not booting from the HDD. Also i will try later to install the kext as per your guide.

 

I will update you as soon as im finished. Really appreciate your feedback.

 

BTW i also did my Optiplex 7010 MT and it works perfect with GT710 No issues at all on Mojave.

Maybe i just got lucky :)

Hello Guys,

 

Im having a hard time installing EL Capitan/Sierra at the moment. Main issue is i cannot find the correct version of Clover for either of the OSX Versions. When i use the latest one, it just gives me error upon installing on the USB.

 

Did the SIP disabled but when i proceed with the installation it has some USB error. Ive used 4 different USB but same issue.

 

Im not sure whats the main reason behind this. Kindly share some thoughts whenever possible.

 

More Power to you guys!

      Can someone help me fix reboot issue? Actually it reboots, but sometimes the hackintosh just hangs with screen off. Here is the Extra folder containing org.chameleon.boot.plist. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MX8-DpQk9kaRUfjPcToxf-ElWh-bN6EY?usp=sharing  and the spec of the PC. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1NlcUNK5DBzJFxeFeuyt92eRjQqwO5T32?usp=sharing Can someone look at it? I might be doing something wrong. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      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
      BaseSystem_PLK.tool_Sierra.zip
      BaseSystem_PLK.tool_Mojave.zip (need to run in Mojave to avoid dependency errors)

      Clover r5051 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_r5051 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5051-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.
