Hey MaLd0n, Awesome guide, thank you so much, here are my clover files+ACPI+IORegistry.
My specs are the following:

 

Mobo: GA-Z270-HD3P Rev 1.0 Bios F7

CPU: i5 7500

GFX: Gigabyte GT 1030 OC 2GB
Ram: 1x16GB

Storage: Kingston SSD 120GB for system and i will throw in another 2TB HDD as soon as I'm done with the system setup

 

I installed El Captain 1st and then upgraded using the app store so that i can have the final update of Sierra with kabylake support, after installing Sierra, i removed fakeCPU ID, and changed my smbios to 18,2 as that specific model uses the same CPU that i have at the moment, so i don't really understand, do i need any PM hacks, or is my CPU OOB?

Here are the files you requested, can't wait to have this beast up and running, I've been on 10.8.5 on a C2Q Q6600 for the past couple of years.... lol (might upgrade it to El Captain using your other guide :)

Hi Maldon,

 

you dont need to do the DSDT edits like this editing the actual file.  Clover has sections in it called drop dsdt tables and then patch each item from the clover config.plist file alone.  just an update for people who keep posting their dsdt's and you dont need to edit every dsdt file people post.

 

What program and patches are you using to do the patches?

clover have a very basic patches, all hacks need a good edited DSDT ;)

check clover page and see slice talkin' about it

create patches with datasheet, ioreg and tables real macs and tests, many tests and time.

see u

I am having trouble with my new setup. 

I have a 7600K, MSI Z270 Gaming M5, GTX 1070.

I am unable to see SATA or NVMe drives. That and I cannot get the Nvidia Web Drivers to load. 

 

I've tried a handful of patches, SSDT-SATA from Rehabman, SATA-200-Unsupported.kext, and a handful others. The SATA controller is 8086:A282, which is apparently unsupported. I'm at my wits end as my first hackintosh with my skylake went beautifully. Hopefully someone can help me out here.

 

Here are the support files. I appreciate anyone's help they can offer!

Nvme, use pike patches

Thank You.

Hello MaLd0n, thanks for this guide.

 

I have a problem with speed of the lan controller, if i transfert a big file from my nas the data speed is average 22MB/s, but the lan negotiation is 1000 in the Sierra setting and the led of my gibagit switch is green (1000).

 

If i transfert the same file with Windows  or Ubuntu the data speed is 80-90MB/s.

 

I have used the kext in first page:

Please I have updated the bios and the old dsdt I had done was for a different motherboard (before I had z270i I Z270G)

 

I'd ask the courtesy to give me a new dsdt as follows (see my signature)

 

- Mobo : Asus Z270G

- Video : Nvidia 1080Ti

- Wifi+BT : pci card 

 

currently with the config of clover I can use HighSierra but I notice a slight "lag" and do not know what is due

Hi again!

Everything works perfectly except for a couple of things. 

The computer seems to wake itself randomly and stick on a black screen. I then have to force reset  and when I reset it is in hibernate at the clover menu. 

Also, my thunderbolt device seems to only work sometimes, and I need to power it on right as I power on the computer.

Is there anything I can do to fix these issues?

Thank you!

      Hi there!
      I'm a newbie to the concept of installing a Mac OS on alternative hardware. Please bear with me
      I have a Lenovo Thinkpad x250 with 5th generation i7-5600U CPU, 16GB RAM, and Intel HD Graphics 5500. (I'd be glad to add any additional hardware details if needed)
      My goal is to have a dual boot machine - Mojave and Win 10. I have two separated physical drives.
      I've tried different methods, but none was stable to be operable.
      If anyone of you has the experience with this specific model it will be really great to hear your opinion.

      Thanks!

      This is not intended to be a complete and comprehensive installation guide. There are many installation guides on the forum and installing macOS is no different from installing on other desktop builds. Rather, this is supplemental information specific to the my hardware listed below. I hope you find this information useful and this will save you a little time.
       
      Hardware

      Mac model: MacPro6,1
      MacOS version tested: Mojave 10.14.6 (18G1012)
       
      What works?
      - Video: 4K x 60Hz on BENQ-BL2711U + Full HD x 60Hz on LG TV 42LF650V
      - Sound: audio jack + HDMI audio on both monitors
      - Wi-Fi (out of the box)
      - USB2 && USB3 ports
      - LAN
      - Bluetooth (out of the box)
       
      What does not work?
      - Sleep mode: not tested / I don't need
       
      BIOS Configuration, what's important:
      Bios Version: 4.6.5.4

      Apologies ahead of time if this is in the wrong thread (please move to appropriate thread if necessary) as it applies to pre-installation and post-installation, Mojave and Catalina, motherboards, user preferences, but it's all related and I just had to get all this written down since it's all resolved...
       
      The issues:
      MOJAVE 10.14.6 2019 SECURITY UPDATE
      CATALINA 10.15.1 INSTALLER USB
      POST Mother Board UPDATE ISSUES
      UEFI Bootloader disappearing from BIOS boot menu/setup
      MAPS NOT WORKING/ CORRUPT USER/LIBRARY/CACHE
      GPT HEADER CORRUPTION AT BOOT
       
      This is my system which has worked flawlessly ever since 10.14.1 and automatic updates within the OS.
      10.14.6 iMac 18,3
      ASUS Rog Maximux X Code Bios v 2023
      Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 Special Edition
      1 NVME System Drive, 1 x 1TB NVME Scratch Disk,  4 Internal 8TB HDD in raid 1+0, 4 x 3TB in a raid 5 setup with enclosure, 1 Backup System SSD, 1 2TB Time machine HDD (get to why I’m listing the drives later)
       
      Instead of making different posts for all of these issues that I’ve spent that past two weeks trying to solve (I almost gave up) I thought for anyone else out there experiencing one or any of the above issues you might find a solution in this thread.
       
      First let me say thanks to all the people out there in the various hackintosh communities (hackintoshers, tonymac, insanelymac, olarila, reddit) I researched every single one to find solutions for all these issues.
       
      Second, invest in Carbon Copy Cloner and make sure you make constant backups of your system drives.  Otherwise there would be no way to troubleshoot.
       
      So this all stemmed from not being able to update to Mojave 10.14.6 2019 Security Update released in November 2019.  
      My original post:
      Link removed:

      There were plenty of different errors through troubleshooting:
      Kextdstall[1] (240s) ‘AppleACPICPU’
      or
      considerRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel com.apple.nke.webcontentfilter trigger rebuild
      or
      com.apple.xpc.launchd.domain.system

      And
      IOG flags 0x3(0x51)

      IOConsoleUsers” gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs0, now 0, sm 0x0
      (The last two, still exist, but don’t stall/severely halt boot, and I’m not really sure if it’s an issue that needs to be addressed as I believe I’ve used the correct format of Device Properties to inject my framebuffer as a headless UHD 630 with 0x3E980003)
       
      Then once I managed to get past some of the installer stalls I always ended at “Installer resources were not found” prompting a restart and continuous loop cycle of no successful install.
       
      Then I tried making a bootable Catalina USB and couldn’t even install a fresh copy of 10.15.1 on a separate SSD.  Again getting errors in verbose mode that would stall and go no further.
       
      Then after cloning, and failing, and cloning and failing, changing bios settings, at some points my UEFI bootloader would completely disappear for my Samsung NVME 970 pro system drive.
       
      Was really getting frustrated, but was determined to fix it.  And here they are one by one in the order I Fixed them:
       
      Clover UEFI Bootloader Disapepared from Boot Menu
      So first I figured out what was going on with the UEFI bootloader disappearing.  I tried complete wipes of the APFS drive, Reinstalling Clover on the EFI partition.  Nothing.  Finally Found the solution here thanks to @chibabah

      Tips:
      1)    If you have lots of connected drives use the Page Up and Page Down key to scroll through results of bcfg boot dump
      2)    Use Disk Utility or Terminal before hand to verify the exact UUID of your EFI system drive that has disappeared.
       
       
      Post Motherboard Update
      Now this seems to apply to a lot of people in the community who have updated and unknowingly couldn’t boot their system, or in my case, couldn’t update the current OS to the latest version.  This seemed to apply to my ASUS Maximus X Code v 2203.
      Thanks @mattystonnie for your ACPI patch found here:

      Can’t Install fresh version of Catalina 10.15.1
      So after almost giving up on not getting the latest Mojave Security update, I wondered if Catalina would have the same issues.  Well it had different issues.
      Stall - Virtual IOReturn ionvmecontroller
      AppleACPICPU stalling
      Requiring EC device
      So I found this reddit thread thanks @dracoflar:
      https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/den28t/whats_new_in_macos_catalina/
       
      And applied the SSDTTime.command create by @corpnewt @noone @rehabman available here:
      https://github.com/corpnewt/SSDTTime
       
      The SSDT-EC.aml file it created from my DSDT.aml was the FINAL KEY in allowing the Catalina Installer to complete.
       
      Tips:
      1)    If you haven’t already created a SSDT before, for example a custom USB SSDT, it is placed in your EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched/
      2)    In your config.plist under ACPI Check “AutoMerge” so that it is true.  This will automatically load any custom SSDT files from your patched folder.
       
      Apple Maps not loading
      This had been something that I had issues with before, more so with location services not working.  However, after several clones, and a succesful Catalina Install/User Migration, location services was fine, but Maps was a blank grey grid, couldn’t find an address, get directions, load satellite image.   Ended up being a corrupt User Library since other System Users had no issues using the application Maps.
      To fix this I used the following resources:
      https://appletoolbox.com/fix-corrupt-user-accounts-macos/
      1)
      Quit Maps
      Give Terminal Full Disk Access and the type:
      diskutil resetUserPermissions / `id -u`
       
      2)
      Deleting The Entire User Library Cache folder
      ~/Library/Caches
       
      3)
      Delete folder ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Maps/
       
      4)
      Restart Mac.  All these caches and temporary folders will repopulated themselves and Maps should resume working.  
       
      Installing Mojave 10.14.6 2019 Security Update
      This by far is the craziest of them all.  Whether the above things I implemented to my EFI or config.plist actually played a part or not in it finally working I guess I’ll never know.  But it is finally solved.  Simply by unplugging all drives.  Appears to be an issue with real macs too:
      https://bartechtv.com/macos-could-not-be-installed-on-your-computer-error-when-installing-mojave-on-hackintosh/
      Link removed:
      Didn’t have to go the terminal route as some did in the tonymac thread above.
       
      So since I have A LOT of drives I simply turned off my external enclosure, physically unplugged by 2nd NVME scratch drive, and disabled the SATA connectors in the BIOS.
       
      Low and behold after two restarts the Security update completed without a hitch or stall.
       
      After install I re-enabled/ connected/turned on all my drives, an no issues.  
       
      This must be a Mojave issue as I didn’t need to do this when installing Catalina from a USB installer.
       
      GPT header corruption has been detected
      And lastly for anyone out there with an ASUS Maximus Motherboard that has updated to the latest BIOS.  There seems to be an issue with external drives plugged into the PC (mine is in the back USB C port)  During boot the PC can’t POST and forces user into setup.
       
      I know there is nothing wrong with the GPT partition as I’ve run multiple tests in windows and mac.  And it’s a known issue with other ASUS motherboard users:
      https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?114955-GPT-header-corruption
       
      Temporary Solution:
      Until a BIOS update addresses this, go to your BIOS settings
      BOOT\Boot Configuration
      And change the Boot Sector (MBR/GPT) Recovery Policy to “Auto Recovery”

      Hello,

      Anyone else having issues with the latest security update 2019-001 10.14.6 for Mojave?

      Have never had issues updating since 10.14.2 in the past. But this once gets stuck on these last 4 lines:
      "
      Adding AGDP mode validate property
      iMac.local com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (org.ntp.sntp.188) <Warning>: Servuce exited with abnormal code: 1
      considerRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel com.apple.nke.webcontentfilter trigger reguild
      Forcing CS_RUNTIME for entitlement: com.apple.rootless.install iMac.Local com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.displaypolicyd.200) <Warning>: Service exited with abnormal code: 1
      "

      The only way to boot is to force shutdown and overide boot from the system volume and bypass the Mac OS Install volume.

      Doing a bit of research from similar issues with users and security updates most boot problems are caused/resolved by fixing:

      Location of Kexts (virtualsmc in Clover's "/kexts/Other/", latest kexts installed with ##### in L/E/ with cache updated by Kext utility)
      The Injection of Kexts (i've tried both detect and inject = yes)
      Mismatched Kext (fakesmc + virtual smc both in use, which they are not)
      A bad config.plist (works booting the normal system voluem, i've attached)
      A graphic injector issue (currently using iMac18,3 + RX580 with the UHD630 in a headless state)
      Multiple Drivers Folder - The old clover /driversuefi64/ folder present and conflicting with the latest /drivers/uefi/ folder (only /drivers/uefi/ present)

      The only thing that is different from this update than previous updates is that I transitioned to VirtualSMC from previously using FAKESMC/ FAKESMCsensors kexts with previous Mojave releases.

      I uninstalled the FAKESMC and all the sensors kexts using terminal and the following command and can confirm they are not present in the Clover "other folder" or the /L/E/ folder.
      sudo rm -rf /Library/Extensions/".....".kext

      After transitiong to VirtualSMC I did read with the readme that the VirtualSmc.efi should be placed in the /drivers/UEFI/ folder in clover. So I have added that to the EFI/CLOVER/DRIVERS/UEFI/ folder manually. Can anyone confirm if this is necessary?

      I've attached my config.plist file and screenshots of the verbose readout stalling as well.

      Any guidance would be great!


      KEXTS I'VE INSTALLED IN /L/E/:
      WhateverGreen.kext
      VirtualSMC.kext

      For AirDrop and Handoff you need a compatible Broadcom Wifi+Bluetooth card. I bought a BCM94360 card with a PCI-E adapter, it's OOB. Currently waiting for arrive, will report back.  
      Issues
      Sometimes I hear crackling sound (just on Catalina 10.15.1, didn't happen on 10.15 or before) If you don't have this issue please let me know.  
      Before updating to newer versions, update your kexts! (and Clover if necessary)
      Generate a new serial with Clover Configurator
      Download the Clover folder: Z77P-D3-catalina.zip

      - There is no need for Whatevergreen.kext 
      - The HD 4000 is working with- or without a graphics card (headless with IntelQuickSync)
      - RX 5700 (ASUS RX 5700 GAMING OC 8 G) working OOB, just delete WhateverGreen.kext (causes black screen)
       
      Triple-Boot Win 10 and Linux (in my case it's Manjaro) (on one drive)
      Make sure your drive is in GPT and you're using UEFI If you have Win 10 installed then: Open diskmgmt (Disk Management), then Shrink your existing Win 10 partition to create two new for Mac and (if you want) for Linux If you have Mac installed: Create a new partition for Linux and (or) Windows in FAT Simply format that partition in Linux, Windows, or Mac installer, then install the OS Copy your working Clover folder to the system's EFI drive If it's automatically booting to Win, open cmd in administrator and write: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi That's it, automatically booting to Clover and you can select your OS If your Linux doesn't show up in Clover make sure you have GUI/Scan/Linux=Yes in config.plist  
      Mount your EFI on Windows:
      Open CMD in administrator and write: mountvol b: /s Use Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator to manage the folder Pictures:
