macOS Sierra on Gigabyte X99 Ultra Gaming-CF i7-6850K

23 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

macOS Sierra seems to run quite well on these components, with Clover botloader, and also with Cameleon. All seems to work well except USB Type C, and graphics, which is a GTX 1080, since no support from Apple Pascal does not work. I opened this topic, in the hopes that those, with same hardware as mine or like to give their opinion about this build here, about a potential fuctionalitate and rectifications.

First of all I,m not  so familiar with hackintosh, so I made this with some help from nmano, he patched my dsdt file.

And the rest of files and kext, from some research on internet.

My problem is that I do not know how to patch or edit DSDT, SSDT, for better functioning.

But I am quite sure that this build could work perfectly, if I had more knowledge.
I easily installed Apple OS.
Without any patch in config plist, you really need fakecpuid.
 
Graphics card will not work because there is no support for pascal
Sleep does not function properly, do not know how to make it work.
USB all works but are not recognized correctly. I saw on the forums that can make it work correctly, but I do not know.

3.) When Clover Installation completes, download extract and copy the "USBInstallEFI.zip" file and replace entire EFI Folder of your USB installation drive.



4.) Boot the USB Installation drive . Install MacOS Sierra onto your system.


5.) Now perform the Post-Installation procedure described below. After finish boot again with USB and select your new instaled hard drive with sierra and finish the process.

Use the HEX Converter in Clover Configurator and enter the values in DSDT patches (Acpi).

 

My Kext also works, assumes two things ahead:

1. Name of the USB3 device = XHCI (standard in the DSDT)
2. SMBIOS is MacPro6.1
