This guide makes an installation of macOS 10.12 Sierra on a real MacPro3,1 or other unsupported Mac's or Hackintosh's possible!

 

Edit: Update for GM post #9

 
What we need for this:
Atom.app or Atom Beta.App
Flat Package Editor.app (from /Developer/Applications/Utilities/PackageMaker.app/Contents/Resources/)
Download Install 10.12 Developer Preview.app
post-1358580-0-42344300-1466449824_thumb.png
 
In addition:
(All files are intended for MacPro3,1, possibly you have a grudge here your BoardID)
 
USB flash drive creation ( 8GB / Created flash drive with the BaseSystem.dmg method! does not work with the createinstallmedia method! ):
 
1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg from the InstallShield Developer 10.12 Preview.app out of your Program Files folder with the disk utility on the USB flash drive
 
2. Delete the simlink packages under "/Volumes/USB/System/Installation/"
 
3. Copy the original package folder from the Install 10.12 Developer Preview.app to "/Volumes/USB/System/Installation/"
 
3.1 optional: install Clover (only for Hackintosh and this Method)
 
4. Replace the InstallableMachines.plist in /Volumes/USB/System/Installation/Packages/ with from Archiv1.zip
 
5. Replace the PlatformSupport.plist in /Volumes/USB/System/Library/Core Services/ with from Archiv1.zip
 
6. Copy the OSInstall.mpkg from /Volumes/USB/System/Installation/Packages/ to the desktop
 
7. Open this by right-clicking the Flat Package Editor
post-1358580-0-85838300-1466483059_thumb.png
 
8. Delete the file "Distribution" and replace with file from Archiv1.zip
(Previously open possibly this file with Atom.app and edit your BoardID after)
post-1358580-0-66357000-1466449850_thumb.png
 
9. Replace now the OSInstall.mpkg in /Volumes/USB/System/Installation/Packages/ with the file from the desktop
 
10. Now you can start, the Mac reboots with pinned Alt key and select your USB flash drive. Make here the installation on a free selected by you partition. The installation starts, then the computer reboots.
 
11. While it is booting Alt hold, so it will not boot into fresh Sierra. Instead, choose your example Capitan and ride high order.
 
12. Go here now in the Finder to the fresh Sierra HDD in /Volumes/Sierra/System/Library/Core Services/ and replacing there the file "PlatformSupport.plist" from the Archiv2.zip
 
13. That's it, do restart in the fresh Sierra and let the installation run through to the end.

I can confirm this method works :thumbsup_anim:.

 

I use a MBP5,1 SMBIOS for my XPS M1530 laptop and added its board id (Mac-F42D86C8) to the InstallationCheck(prefix) section while removing MacBookPro5,1 from the nonSupportedModels section of the Distribution file.

 

Another workaround (possible in hacks but not on real Macs) is to temporarily change your SMBIOS to a supported model to allow installation on the hard drive eg  MacBook6,1 post#3.  Once the installer has completed putting all the OS files on the target partition for Sierra, you can boot into another OSX partition and change the SMBIOS back to MBP5,1 or whatever you normally use.  Note that as a minimum, your processor must support SSE4 - Penryn and newer Intel processors.

 

Attached files work to allow MBP5,1 definition for the installer.

All I did was the following:

 

1. Remove drive from Mac Pro

 

2. Install Sierra straight from the App to Mac Pro's disk using your supported Mac/ hack

        - I used a USB3 to SATA3 adapter

        - If using a Mac can also be done with target disk if you have Thunderbolt to Firewire cable

        - If using a hack just plug it in internally

 

3. Modify PlatformSupport.plist to include Mac Pro's identifier and board ID

        - The one from El Cap is probably fine

 

4. Plug drive back in and boot normally!

Hello fusion17au !

 

I've successfully installed Sierra on my Dell D830 laptop after replacing it's old T7700 C2Duo by a T9300. Everything's fine so far.

 

I changed the SMBios from MBP5,1 to MBP7,1 to perform installation. Then I tried to revert back to the old MBP5,1. The OS is happy with that but Clover is not !

 

When I use this SMBios, Clover won't boot because of :

Reason : Mac-F42D86C8 (which is the Board ID of the MBP5,1)

I need to change it in config.plist (and only this) to Mac-F222BEC8 (MBP7,1) so Clover accept to boot the system. Otherwise, no way.

 

This is not a big deal since it works fine using this workaround or by simply using the normal MBP7,1 SMBios but I would like to know if you experienced the same minor issue with yours and how you bypassed it ?

 

Also, I was a bit concern about how the change of a SMBios would impact on some aspects of the Power Management. In this case, I guess they're probably negligible but you know, just wondering :).

 

NB : This is only happens with Clover, not with Enoch. I guess it"s because the limitation is coded somewhere in the boot.efi that Clover reads when it loads OS X. Enoch does not care about that file so it won't complain :unsure:

 

Thanks

Hi @polyzargone,

 

Thanks for the info. 

 

Actually, I use the Board-ID, MLB and ROM from a MBP6,2 for iMessage purposes (but MBP5,1 SMBIOS "ProductName") so I haven't noticed this anomaly.

 

AFAIK, power management depends on the SMBIOS "ProductName" chosen in Clover's config.plist and not the Board-ID so I think you should be OK continuing to use MBP7,1 Board-ID with MBP5,1 SMBIOS :).

 

PS

  • Did you replace PlatformSupport.plist in /Volumes/Sierra/System/Library/Core Services/ with one that contains your MBP5,1 board-id Mac-F42D86C8?
  • Some guys in this MacRumors thread reported bypassing the compatibility check by adding the -no_compat_check boot argument to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist.

OK, thanks for the insight about PM.

 

I didn't notice anything particular while using MBP7,1 so far so I guess it's just fine.

 

I'll keep using it so now I can say I've got a brand new Mac Hack for free ! :hysterical:

Greetings, I have just received an 8-core 2,8GHz MacPro3,1 with 6GB ram and 8800GT but *without* a hard disk so whatever I do I have to start from square one.

Which method should I follow so eventually I have a MacPro3,1 running Sierra? Start with ElCap?

And the story goes on. Also HighSierra works with some tricks with the unsupported Mac -> MacPro3,1. Everything without dosdude created, pure handwork.

I upgraded my real MacPro 2008 from the ATI to Nvidia 8800 graphics card few years ago, is there any power management tricks needed for this graphics card?  Do you think there may be some incompatibility for apps running on this hardware with Sierra such as Logic or Final Cut etc etc?  I never upgraded from 10.9 since I have Maya, Cinema Studio 4d , adobe after effects and so on because I was not sure if any OS upgrades may break my current setup.

Attached files work to allow MBP5,1 definition for the installer.

 

 

I can actually start the install of Osx 10.12.5 for my Quad Core 2 Duo with MacPro3,1 as you suggest change the smbios system definition to one that is supported. In my case when I try MacPro4,1 I get a kernel panic from AppleTyMCEDriver and found a clover patch for this but it doesn't seem to work on the installer.  If I choose iMac12,1 or 13,1 I can get to the installer desktop my my USB ports are all dead even with Rehabman USBInjectAll injector kext.   My only other way is to install on a supported mac make modifications for my Gigabyte board GA-G41m-ES2L  v3 and delete that driver or try the patch after the install, then insert the drive back.

 

Any other thoughts are welcome.

 

Thanks!

@oSxFr33k,

 

Can you boot the installer in safe mode with MacPro4,1 SMBIOS?

 

Maybe create the installer by the "restore BaseSystem.dmg method", remove AppleTyMCEDriver from the installer's /S/L/E and rebuild kernelcache as described in this thread for the El Capitan Installer (should still work for Sierra).

 

Good Luck!

      - 3.0 USB (native)
      - Touchpad and Keyboard (ELAN501): Fn keys are good, the weird thing is the Brightness key. On my keyboard it's Pause Break:Br-up, Fn+F12:Br-dwn-> To fix this try Karabiner (VoodoPS2Controller.kext), - for gestures try SmartTouchpad drivers
      - Battery info: Install ACPIBatteryManager.kext with Kext Utility or other installer.

      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.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 stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      For any system kext installation\modification you need to boot with config_debug.plist (or disable SIP manually)
      Also on Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R.

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       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       5.  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).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      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)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!

      2019.01.21: Removed FakeSMC.kext, SMCHelper-64.efi, replaced by VirtualSMC.kext, VirtualSMC.efi because I got random freezes when booting system (kextd stall[0], (120s): 'AppleACPICPU' -> CPU is at 100%, fans are spinning fast), also updated bootpack in the attachments "acer_aspire_v591g-55tu_clover.zip" -> Freeze continued, brought back FakeSMC, deleted VirtualSMC (caused BT crashes).
