Patched OSInstall.mpkg and OSInstaller.framework to allow OS X 10.11 installation on MBR partition.
To use those patched files you must follow HowTo-10.11.x to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x patch method
How to make 10.11 installer for MBR?
Open /Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg first.
1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg to HFS partition and rename the partition’s name as OSXMBR as /Volumes/OSXMBR/
2. Copy InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
3. Copy InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.chunklist to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
4. Copy InstallESD.dmg/AppleDiagnostics.dmg to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
5. Copy InstallESD.dmg/AppleDiagnostics.chunklist to /Volumes/OSXMBR/
6. Remove /Volumes/OSXMBR/System/Installation/Packages
7. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages to /Volumes/OSXMBR/System/Installation/Packages
OSInstall.mpkg replace to
OSInstaller replace to
9. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages/Essentials.pkg/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
(use Pacifist v3.2.14 to access the contents of Essentials.pkg, and make directory /System/Library/Kernels first.)
(Need kernel only if you use Chameleon with -f to boot the installer disk, needn't with Clover.)
10. Boot to /Volumes/OSXMBR/ to install Mac OS X.
Work fine with Clover
Work fine with Enoch
and /Extra/kernel.plist with
If you want to patch MBR by yourself, here is the patch code, works on 10.11.0 ~ 10.11.6
perl -pi -e 's|\x48\x8B\x78\x28\x48\x85\xFF\x74\x5F\x48\x8B\x85|\x48\x8B\x78\x28\x48\x85\xFF\xEB\x5F\x48\x8B\x85|g' OSInstaller
codesign -f -s - OSInstaller
Sometimes I am a complete noob, so I deleted two kexts from S/L/E and now my Asus Q200E laptop with OS X El Capitan boot hangs on kernel panic. I still can enter go through Clover to reach Recovery Mode and use Terminal, so I've put the two kexts on a USB pendrive and after some struggle I've managed to succefully copy them using Terminal, but the boot is still stuck on kernel panic. As I remember, these are the commands I've typed:
cp -a /Volumes/usb-stick/name.kext /Volumes/my-osx-drive/System/Library/Extensions
Is there anything else I should do? Is anything wrong? Should I type some command else? For instance, should I type something to fix permissions and rebuild cache?
Thanks a lot!
Where to start digging for solution?
Powerful budget Hackintosh for the living room
MSI B250I Pro Mini-ITX
Arctic Freezer 33 semi passive CPU cooler
ASUS Geforce GT1030
8 GB GSkill DDR4-2133 RAM
Samsung 256GB PCIe SSD
GMYLE Bluetooth USB
Silverstone ITX Case
PICO Mini ATX 120W
My plan was to build a Hackintosh with the best price-performance-ratio to be used as media player in the living room hooked to the TV. For that use it should be silent, fanless at best. So I decided to go for the Pentium G4600 which offers nearly the same performance as the I3-7100 for a much lower price and the MSI B250I Pro Mini ITX board, the cheapest one with M.2 slots for PCIe and Wifi. The Arctic Freezer 33 is my favourite choice as CPU cooler and I’m using it for all my builds. The fan literally never spins up during usual daily usage.
For graphics card the fanless GT1030 is the obvious choice as it delivers the best performance with the lowest possible power consumption. Speaking of power: As the Arctic Freezer is too huge for a standard ATX power supply to fit in an ITX case I go for a PICO Mini ATX adapter that allows up to 120 watts on 16 volts, so a common laptop power supply can be used and of course it runs noiseless as wished.
Everything works like a real mac, there are no power management, sleep or wake issues. You can even use your Bluetooth keyboard or mouse to wake it and it will sleep well again. It is not necessary to disable USB power via DSDT. For this build I don’t even bother to compile one. This hasn’t happened for years J
Of course the installation needs preparation because the Pentium CPU isn’t supported out of the box. You need to configure your UEFI right and get your config.plist for Clover in order before you can start, otherwise macOS will simply kernel panic. Telling it the other way: there is no post installation action required
And for those who are planning to use the Intel HD630 instead of a dedicated graphics card: You can’t. It sounds promising at first to have a macOS supported Intel HD on this chip but it seems as if Intel has just branded it this way and in reality using a different architecture. The best you can achieve is to get into desktop by spoofing a Skylake ID but you won’t get hardware acceleration this way.
*For this guide I assume that you already know how to prepare a macOS install drive, how to install Clover bootloader and configure it, mounting your EFI partition and so on. You know: the basic skills. If you don’t you’ll find beginners guides for these tasks on the forum.*
*CREDITS: Go to all people involved in the hackintosh community. For this guide I searched and tested for days, finding all the bits needed to complete the installation. If you think one or two of the presented solutions here is based on one of your own unique ideas please feel free to tell me and I will add your name here at once of course. Many thanks to all of you!*
Clover version used: 4392
Installed OS: 10.13.3
SATA Mode AHCI MODE
\Advanced\Integrated Graphics Configuration\
Initiate Graphics Adapter PEG
IGD Multi Monitor DISABLED
\Advanced\Windows OS Configuration
\Advanced\Wake Up Event Setup
or at least:
Resume By USB Device ENABLED if you like
Intel VT-d Tech DISABLED
C1E Support ENABLED
(very important, needed to prevent kernel panics on boot)
Just use Clover Configurator for convenient editing of your config.plist. For successful boot at least FakeCPUID must be added and KernelXCPM be ticked.
Change HDAS to HDEF
Change HECI to IMEI
Change SAT0 to SATA
Change GFX0 to IGPU
Fix Shutdown TRUE
Audio Inject 1 (if you use AppleALC)
Kernel and Kext Patches
Apple RTC True
Kernel to Patch
Find b9a00100 000f32 Replace b9a00100 0031c0 to disable AVX
(This is needed because the Pentium lacks AVX support. Without it apps like Safari and AppStore are likely to crash.)
Kexts and SSDT
Download at GitHub.
(needed for HDMI/DVI audio with AppleALC (on non GT1030 cards) and fixes a wake up issues that could lead to black screen)
Remove any Osxaptiofix or Memoryfix installed by Clover and use OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi instead. Solves the occasional “Does printf work?” completely.
For audio use AppleALC.kext or VoodooHDA.kext (never both!) and AppleHDADisabler.kext
Only VoodooHDA enables HDMI, DP or DVI audio on GT1030. Other cards may work with AppleALC (tested with GT710 and DVI audio works).
Nvidia webdrivers Issues
Don’t use the designated webdrivers for 10.13.3! They give you extremely poor OpenCL performance what leads to choppy video playback. Instead use NVDAWebPatcher to patch the webdrivers for 10.13.2 and install them instead. I’m not kidding the 10.13.3 drivers are unusable, this step is mandatory.
