[GUIDE] Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520 with macOS Sierra

54 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This follows my previous guide for El Capitan.

 

0. What works and does not

Works

- CPU power management

- QE/CI on Integrated Intel HD 4000

- Keyboard/Trackpad

- HDMI and LVDS output

- Audio: Headphone, speaker, HDMI.

- Ethernet

- Camera

- Battery info

- Bluetooth

- USB

 

Does NOT work

- Internal Wifi. Workaround: USB wifi or replace your internal wifi with a supported mPCI-e card.

- Sleep: does not work with an USB wifi. Workaround: Replace your internal wifi with a supported card.

- VGA out. Workaround: Use an « active » HDMI to VGA adapter. I use this way to connecting my laptop to projectors.

- Discrete AMD GPU

- Card reader. Workaround: Use an external USB card reader.

 

 

1. Specs

My Dell Inspiron 15R SE has the following specs:

- Intel Core i7 3632QM with Intel HD Graphic 4000

- 8GB + 4GB RAM (12GB total)

- 128GB Samsung EVO SSD + 1TB HDD

- AMD Radeon 7730M, won't be used by any Hackintosh build

- Full HD 15.4" screen

 

2. Requirements

- A Dell 7520, of course :D

- An USB Stick, minimum 8GB. Any 8GB should work.

- A pair of USB Mouse / Keyboard during the installation and fixes (you can use your built in keyboard and touchpad later)

- An existing Hackintosh (or a real Mac, if you have any ;) ) If you don't, I suggest to start from lower versions (or use Hackintosh Zone Yosemite distro as your base, follow my previous short guide)

- Downloaded «Install macOS Sierra» from App Store.

- A GPT-partitioned hard drive. This is required since El Capitan (and was not the case with Yosemite).

- A 20GB (minimum) partition as the target.

- MacPwn

 

3. Create USB Install. For full guide please see here

- Boot your existing Hackintosh or real Mac.

- First you need to be sure that you have downloaded the app «Install macOS Sierra» from App Store.

- Use Disk Utilities to partition your USB stick with 1 partition in GPT mode, and choose «OS X Extended (Journaled)» as partition type. Note: don't use any space in label of your disk.

- Run MacPwn.

- Press Continue. Then Continue and Continue. Agree the license agreement. Change Install Location, then Install to Specific Disk and choose your USB stick. Click Customize to choose your desired boot loader. I prefer Chameleon. Finally, Install.

- Be patient. It's quite slow.

- Reboot after finishing creating you USB for installation.

 

4. Install

- During boot, press F12 to have boot list. Choose your USB to start. Use 'IntelCapriFB=4' to boot the installation.

- It should boot directly to the installation UI. Choose language.

- On top menu, select Utilities and Disk Utility.

- Format your target partition as OS X Extended (Journaled).

- Exit Disk utility.

- Select Install, choose your newly formatted partition. Follow the instruction. Wait for a while (in my case I waited around 10 minutes).

- It will restart your computer as soon as it finishes the file copy.

- You still need to boot from USB. Hit F12 during boot to show boot list. Choose your USB to start. Use 'IntelCapriFB=4', select your installed partition and press Enter.

- You will be able to see user creation. Follow the instructions on screen. When you get to your desktop, welcome to macOS Sierra!

 

5. Fix boot loader

Clover is a nice bootloader for macOS Sierra. Get latest version from Sourceforge, install it into ESP, choose boot0ss while installing.

 

6. Device fixes

6.1. Built-in trackpad and keyboard

Download EMlyDinEsH's Smart Touchpad kext, version 4.6.5 and install it with any kext utility. Don't forget to remove any ApplePS2 kext in your /System/Library/Extensions

6.2. Intel HD 4000 for HDMI output

- I've successfully finished patching AppleIntelFramebufferCapri to support both LVDS and HDMI at the same time. Delete /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext and use the attached one instead :)

- Note: add (or change) IntelCapriFB=3 in your Clover's config.plist.

6.3. Audio

VoodooHDA works for me. I use version 2.8.8. Simply download it and install it with your Kext utility.

6.4. CPU Power Management

Works fine with macOS Sierra (official version) as long as you use ssdtPRGen.sh as instructed here

6.5. Ethernet

Simply install this KingMaker's Realtek RTL8111-8168 kext with any of your kext utility and reboot, you will have ethernet working!

6.6. Screen Brightness and Disable AMD GPU

Use provided SSDT/DSDT to fix screen brightness and to disable the discrete AMD 7730M GPU for better power consumption.

6.7. Battery info

By default you will not be able to see Battery info. Install RehabMan's ACPI Battery Driver will fix this.

6.8. Wifi

The integrated wifi doesn't work. At all. I used an external wifi dongle TP Link WN725N (v2) for Internet access. After that I replaced the internal wifi with a Atheros AR5B29 and it works natively :)

Hello,

 

I own a Inspiron 7520 (i5-3230m; 6GB RAM; 750GB HDD). The only thing left for me to have a "fully" functional Hacintosh is video acceleration. Even after using the provided DSDT/SSDT patches, I still couldn't disable the AMD GPU, nor get brightness control. When I go on "About this Mac" I am presented with an information stating my computer has only 7MB for video.

 

I use 10.12 with Clover boot manager. Flags for boot are dart=0 IntelCapriFB=3

This is an excellent resource, thank you so much! I intend on following your instructions shortly. I plan to go through with the Hackintosh installation in two or so weeks when I have more time than right now. I have three questions:

 

1. 

 

6.8. Wifi
The integrated wifi doesn't work. At all. I used an external wifi dongle TP Link WN725N (v2) for Internet access. After that I replaced the internal wifi with a Atheros AR5B29 and it works natively :)

 

I was recently given an Inspiron 5520. Specs are almost identical to yours; the only difference I notice is that it doesn't have the dedicated AMD graphics card. It only has Intel HD Graphics 4000. Not a problem, since, as you mentioned, the AMD graphics doesn't even work.

 

Can you add a link to the specific card you picked up? I've searched for the Atheros AR5B29 online but can't find an actual unit to buy. Does the Atheros AR5B29 adapter also have a Bluetooth radio? Here's some context to this question:

 

Although it has been a while since my last project, this won't be my first Hackintosh. I had a couple USBs lying around with previous installations of Mac OS X, so I tried to boot into a Mavericks stick I had just to see if the project was worth pursuing. It booted better than expected, but essentially nothing but the display and Bluetooth worked. (I had to use a USB keyboard and an Apple Trackpad connected via Bluetooth as the built-in keyboard and trackpad weren't working). The reason I'm bringing this up is because it seems that Bluetooth works natively with whatever adapter is in the computer. 

 

I'm currently running on Windows 10. In my Device Manager, it looks like I have drivers for the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230. According to the spec chart, this adapter has a built-in Bluetooth 4.0 radio as well. Am I incorrect in thinking that both the Bluetooth and WiFi radios are on the same chip? Or are they separate? I'm only concerned that if I swap the adapter with a supported WiFi chip (such as the one you mentioned), I may lose Bluetooth if the replacement chip doesn't have both radios. 

 

2. What kext utility did you use? I've used ##### in the past.

 

Edit: looks like it's a bad thing to have used Tony's tool, mul*ibeast.

 

3. Lastly:

 

 5. Fix boot loader

Clover is a nice bootloader for macOS Sierra. Get latest version from Sourceforge, install it into ESP, choose boot0ss while installing.

 

Can you expand on this? How do I install it to the ESP and how do I choose boot0ss while installing? 

 

Thanks.

Hi infobat,

 

Sorry for the very late reply. Again I rarely get back to insanelymac when I have a good Hackintosh running.

 

...I was recently given an Inspiron 5520. Specs are almost identical to yours; the only difference I notice is that it doesn't have the dedicated AMD graphics card. It only has Intel HD Graphics 4000. Not a problem, since, as you mentioned, the AMD graphics doesn't even work.

 

Can you add a link to the specific card you picked up? I've searched for the Atheros AR5B29 online but can't find an actual unit to buy. Does the Atheros AR5B29 adapter also have a Bluetooth radio? Here's some context to this question:

It's a modified version of Atheros 9285 (check attachment). You can have a list of compatibility cards here. There is no bluetooth at all, anyway. I don't use bluetooth so that doesn't matter much.

 

... According to the spec chart, this adapter has a built-in Bluetooth 4.0 radio as well. Am I incorrect in thinking that both the Bluetooth and WiFi radios are on the same chip? Or are they separate? I'm only concerned that if I swap the adapter with a supported WiFi chip (such as the one you mentioned), I may lose Bluetooth if the replacement chip doesn't have both radios.

My original wifi card also include bluetooth. When I replaced the wifi card, I lost bluetooth as well. Cards with bluetooth are generally more expensive than the ones without.

 

2. What kext utility did you use? I've used ##### in the past.

 

I use k*xtbeast or kext utility. Both work without any problem.

 

 

Can you expand on this? How do I install it to the ESP and how do I choose boot0ss while installing?

There's a button "Customize" before you press the install button. There are plenty of options for you :)

so calrez post is a progress to seluws 
yeah i am on clover, i mean i instaled it after booting up mac for the 1st time, I can boot with usb stick anytime I want, but bootloader doesnt want to load up, i've tried using some flags in terminal, but they do jack {censored}, I think problem may be with the fact that i have one hhd and windows on it already 


all i see after seting hdd as booting option is error

Did you make a separate EFI partition?

 

I suggest you install Clover to that EFI partition (using the option «install to ESP» during clover installation)

i got the clover installer from your el capitan guide and while installing i just choose the partition where mac os was installed, so You' re saying that am I should choose a specific folder?
I only hackintoshed my pc before and used mutlibeast for instalation of the bootloader and for el capitan clover just worked- i was just following a guide for upgrade.

If you do the repartitioning of your whole hard disk using the installation USB, you would have had an "EFI" partition. Check with ```diskutil list```

 

During clover install, there's a customize button. Tick "install to ESP" and boot0ss.

 

And boot without UEFI... Disable it in BIOS. It always s*cks.

Hi Doixanh,

 

First of all, thanks for your comprehensive guides.

I got everything working except for video acceleration.

 

Here's what I have found after troubleshooting my setup for a while:

 

- In all cases, I need to de-select the "Inject Intel..." section in Clover. Otherwise it won't boot.

- Booting with dart=0 nv_disable=1 USBBusFix=Yes IntelCapriFB=4 works fine, but no acceleration

- Installing Carpi Kext in S/L/E worked, but no acceleration using the boot options above (not even using IntelCapriFB=3)

- Installed config.plist you attached previously, but I can't even boot with the arguments you have there.

- Generated SSDT based on your Power Management section and still the same.

 

How can I tell if the Capri kext is being correctly loaded?

 

I agree this information may not be enough to troubleshoot my case so let me know if you want me to post anything else and I'll do it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers!

Hi Nicurda,

 

"IntelCapriFB=4" is supposed to be used with Chamaleon / Enoch only. There's a setting in Clover's config.plist for that.

 

You can use my patched Capri kext along with this one in your plist:

		<key>ig-platform-id</key>
		<string>0x01660003</string>
OR, use this with the stock kext and there will be no HDMI output (but should work with your LVDS screen)

		<key>ig-platform-id</key>
		<string>0x01660004</string>

Thanks, doixanh.

 

I think the culprit is in my config.plist... I can't seem to find the right configuration for my setup.

The one in the USB installation media is the one that works best. Others I've tried give me kernel panics, no acceleration or power management / performance issues.

 

I tried the config.plist in your Sierra tutorial but still couldn't get it right.

Can you share with me your current config.plist and any other required files? Since our setup is pretty much the same (at least regarding CPU, PM, video card), this could help me get it up and running in one shot.

Thanks!

Thanks, doixanh.

In any case, I see our config.plist files are identical  :)

 

I guess I need to do some more troubleshooting (will check my Clover version, reinstall your Capri kext, etc).

I appreciate your help.

Thanks again!

 Nicurda,

 

In the worst case, if you can't resolve your problem, I suggest you do a complete clean (i.e. erase your whole disk), install macOS on a single partition, and install Clover v3320 on the ESP partition. Drop the modified kext (my post above) in /S/L/E, use my clover plist (also my post above).

 

If it still doesn't work, try with my SSDT/DSDT (available in my El Capitan guide).

 

Best wishes,

Hey doixanh,

 

I think I found the issue... the problem was not the Capri kext or the clover plist.

What I was missing was copying the rest of the kexts from the clover folder in my USB installation media to /EFI/Clover/...

After doing that, everything worked like a charm.

Thanks for your help!

Nicurda,

 

That's a good news :)

 

Anyway, I have updated to 10.12.4 and got a very small glitch. I have to update the Intel Backlight kext in order to make it work. AppleHDA also needs to be removed as usual.

 

Bests,

I thought I had upgraded to 10.12.4 with no issues... until you mentioned the backlight kext is not working :)

I've fixed it and everything's back to normal.

Thanks for the heads-up!

I lost brightness again with 10.12.5 update. Using the RehabMan-IntelBacklight-2017-0226.zip does not fix it. I tried removing AppleBacklight*.kext but still did not work.

Checking with Clover r4061...


/edit. Nope, still doesn't work.

/edit2. I'm following this guide, hope that it will work.

 

/edit3. I managed to fix it it with the above guide:

- Put AppleBacklightInjector.kext in to /L/E (important!)

- Turn off AddPNLF in clover config (important!)

- Put the built SSDT PNLF into clover/ACPI/patched

- Remove IntelBacklight.kext

      Hello,
      I'm working on a re-install of OSX on a dell inspiron 9400. I was finally able to get a copy of SL on it. But it still needs MUCH work, as the graphics (NVIDIA Geforce Go 7800) isn't properly recognized -- either by model, or installed VRAM.
      It has 512Mb, but only initializes 256Mb VESA.
      Anyway, as a start, I thought it best to use a valid dsdt.dsl for compilation, and start there. I've managed to remove all the warnings, and errors save 2
      OUTPUT:
      # sudo iasl -ta ./dsdt.dslll Intel ACPI Component Architecture ASL Optimizing Compiler version 20110527-64 [May 27 2011] Copyright (c) 2000 - 2011 Intel Corporation ./dsdt.dslll   3519:                                 Return (0x00) Error    4080 -           Invalid object type for reserved name ^  (found INTEGER, requires Buffer) ./dsdt.dslll   3956:                     Return (Package (0x00) {}) Remark   5072 -         Effective AML package length is zero ^ ASL Input:  ./dsdt.dslll - 4997 lines, 158533 bytes, 1633 keywords Compilation complete. 1 Errors, 0 Warnings, 1 Remarks, 577 Optimizations I'm attaching a copy of the above output, and the dsdt.dsl file in a tarball to this post in hopes someone with the required knowledge can help me fix it.

      Hi there,
      I've decided to install Mac OS Mojave 10.14 on my laptop. I've installed it using the vanilla method (dosdude1 patcher, TINU, clover on USB drive)Actually I need to fix some things such as the CMD key (that changed from WIN key to L_ALT key), the brightness control and the fn keys (such as brightness up and down)
      N.B. I've actually ordered a DW1560 (BCM94352Z) WiFi M.2 card because my QCA9377 doesn't work. 
      Below you can find my CLOVER CONFIG, the ioreg and the acpi/origin folder of CLOVER extracted using the F4 method.

      Hello all!
       
      I have successfully got my Hackbook online, using USB tethering. Thanks to Herve (can't use special characters, you know who you are!), I also got my audio working.
       
      I am very much ready to begin setting up iCloud, the App Store, and iMessage/FaceTime. Those services (especially the latter two) are what got me into hackintoshing.
       
      Problem: The listed services fail to sign me in. iCloud sign in from System Preferences returns "Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud."
      FaceTime returns a registration process fail, the App Store reports that my computer can't be verified, and iMessage reports an activation error. However, iTunes works, except no Apple Music.
       
      HARDWARE:
      Intel Core i7-2630QM
      GeForce GT 525M (using integrated HD 3000 graphics instead)
      Custom Dell L502X A12 BIOS w/ UEFI support
       
      SOFTWARE:
      OS X Mavericks 10.9.5
      AppleALC + VoodooHDA for audio
      VoodooPS2Controller (trackpad kext likes to cause KP during boot, sometimes)
       
      Any possible fixes for this?
      Thanks in Advance!

      Hello all! Glad to be here!
       
      I've hacked my Dell XPS L502X with an install of OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 (vanilla install). All is good and all, except that there is no WiFi (planning on buying wifi dongle) and that there is no audio.
      The lack of internet irks me, but I can fix that at a later date. What I can't deal with is the lack of audio. I've tried everything, but there is no luck. AppleALC, Voodoo/AppleHDA, among others.
      Oh, if I have to, I can reinstall OS X, since nothing important is on the partition.
       
      All replies and answers are welcome!

      Thanks in Advance!
       
      Installus (Chaotic) 
       
      EDIT: Thanks to Hervé, I've been able to get my audio working, and so can you! 
       
      All you need is... 
       
      A hackintosh that has the Realtek ALC665 codec (you can't change codecs!) 
       
      AppleALC.kext (latest version) 
      OR
      VoodooHDA.kext (again, latest version) 
      AppleHDADisabler.kext
       
      A USB flash drive (if you have no WiFi on hackintosh) 
      A secondary computer/way to put files onto the drive (again, no WiFi on hackintosh) 
       
       
      1. Store the files you need on your hackintosh
       
      1a. Download them straight thru your hackintosh
       
      1b. Use a secondary device to download them and store on a flash drive. 
       
      2. Open terminal on your computer and type "diskutil mount EFI" in said terminal. Of course, remove the quotation marks. 
       
      3. On your EFI partition, navigate to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
       
      4. Drag n' Drop the kexts you have downloaded on your computer to that folder. 
       
      5. Cross your fingers and reboot
       
      5a. (Optional) Suffer a kernel panic during boot because VoodooPS2 doesn't like you. 
       
      6. If all goes well, you'll have audio! 
       
      Guaranteed works for Dell L502X, however YMMV.

      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.

      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni

      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi
                               : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine,
       
      *Nota: Altri driver che si possono usare  al suo posto  sono:

      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched

      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
