[GUIDE] EL Capitan / Sierra / High Sierra on Intel LGA 775 motherboards / DSDT

Recommended Posts

Use like a nvidia 9800 gt or other nvidia

 

Let's re-ignite this party! I have a Sapphire AMD R9 280X (Dual X) 3GB that wants to play. MaldOn, I went back and installed your first clover folder in my HDD's EFI partition. This is how far I got (photo). Any ideas?

 

This card has a switch to use either legacy boot or uefi boot. Can't get to BIOS if it is switched to legacy. Only when switched to uefi boot will I be able to see the BIOS. My Intel BIOS can enable UEFI BOOT , but it doesn't matter whether uefi is enabled or disabled in the BIOS, I still must have the switch (on the card) set to uefi to get the BIOS.

 

 

Thanks in advance!!

back to home

on the road today

give me 1 hour

Sacre Bleu!! The Sapphire AMD R9 280X (Dual X) 3GB works with the C2Q q8200 OOB!! Sadness and grief! I've been dealt the very worst card ... no doubt about it ...

 

Seriously, how does Clover "know" to spoof the CPUID of the C2Q to a Xeon Quad core? Would it be possible to spoof my Xeon 5460* to a C2Q so Clover can then spoof it back to a Xeon? Sort of a spoof of a spoof?

 

 

Remember that the X5460 was actually **in** a Mac Pro https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/mac-pro-cpu-compatibility-list.1954766/

 

The other option is to overclock the {censored} out of the C2Q. CPU Boss says I can Overclock to 3.5 with water cooling-which I have!!

 

And the other option is just to nuke this mobo from space-it's the only way to be sure!!!

Booted with usb working. I think I'll make a clean install now on ssd (I worked on hdd and it's so slow) with your latest updates post install. 

ps2 keyboard doesn't work. 

Hey, I'm back with my 775 hack and Capo. I have just connected sound and it is present but cracked, staggering (right word?) Like low signal on cell phone. I haven't check that before.

      This guide guide is a work in progress
       
      Introduction
      The H370 chipset powers 8th generation Core-i CPUs by Intel and is actually much newer than the Z370, even though it name implies otherwise. The H370 requires new approaches compared to the Z370, since it includes newer or different components. An example would be on-die USB 3.1 and WiFi support.
      Since this guide is not a "hold-your-hand-every-step" guide, I assume you know:
      Clover installation and configuration How to create an install medium BIOS configuration and access Have heard of ACPI patching (I'm a newb at this myself)  
      What works
      Sleep (via DSDT edits and emulated NVRAM) on-board Audio (via CloverALC script) Native PM (without any kext or patch) All USB ports iGPU for both acceleration and display dGPU (I'm running an Nvidia GTX 1080)  
      Untested
      NIC --> I'm using WiFi only  
      What doesn't work
      Native NVRAM via AptioMemoryFix.efi DMVT Pre-alloc higher than 64MB (but not necessary)  
      1. Installation
      This guide heavy inspired by the work of /u/corpnewt of /r/hackintosh and his (sorta) Vanilla guide
       
      1.1 Create the install media for MacOS
      Follow this, if you are using a Mac to start off with. If you are totally new to MacOS, then please check the basic guide Creation of an installer media in windows or linux
       
      1.2 Install Clover on the install media
      Using the Clover installer, ensure you are installing to the USB medium you are using for the installer.
      Chose the following options:
      AptioMemoryFix UEFI booting only Install to ESP You have to get your hands on an apfs.efi. A google search can help, or extracting it from the Installer package. Make sure you procure a version matching the MacOS version you are about to install. Place the apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI.
       
      1.2 Adjust the config.plist for the installer
      You can use the config.plist attached as a guideline, but take a look at it before and at least adjust the SMBIOS - otherwise it won't boot.
      Attention: The attached plist contains audio patches introduced by a post-install step. If you run into problems, you might remove those. It also contains a manual slide value, which should normally not be needed, but works fine for me. It is also tuned for usage with an Nvidia Pascal dGPU as main GPU.
       
      The config you create now should serve you nicely for install and running the system.
       
      Take care of adding the following basics:
      SMBIOS: iMac18,3 - You can generate a serial number via Clover Configurator. The creation of a proper SMBIOS is covered in many guides to good extend Look at the graphics section and adjust the injection for Intel to your situation  
      Fixes

      Patches

      Devices

      Graphics

      Kernel and Kext patches
       
      1.3 kexts and friends
      Add the supplied SSDT-UAIC.aml to "patched" - it limits the injected USB Ports to the actual number and ports valid for this board.
       
      Required kexts on "Other":
      FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext Lilu.kext When having an Nvidia card: NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext in case you're running Ethernet USBInjectAll.kext with the HCI-300-series-injector.kext --> These two should be installed to /L/E after install  
      We are leaving sound out at the moment, this is something for post-install. Please note the absence of Shiki, I don't find it necessary. Video material I tried made use of the iGPU without shiki.
       
      1.4 Check BIOS and install
      You should be ready for install. But before you reboot, please take a look at your BIOS and set it up accordingly (copied from the aforementioned guide and adapted):
      Load Optimized Defaults Disable VT-d setting If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it Set OS Type to Windows 8/10 or OtherOS - I have not seen a difference Turn off internal Serial and Parallel port Turn off Network stack for boot Turn off wake-on-lan (for now) Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled Don't enable decode over 4G Depending on your GPU, set priority for boot Set internal GPU to enable Set DMVT pre-alloc to 64MB Set USB legacy to enabled Activate XMP profile 1 f your Ram has it (mine doesn't and I added the timings manually) Set ERP to enable, disable platform power management (I need to do more research if this could be enabled)  
      I've attached my current BIOS config "hack2". You can place that on a fat32 drive (the EFI partition of your install USB drive might be an idea) and see if it loads. It's made for and with the F2 BIOS.
       
      The install itself should be like other MacOS Hackintosh installs with it several reboots and ensuring to select the correct boot device in Clover.
       
      2. Post-install
       
      2.1 Install clover on target
      This is a no-brainer, but install a fresh copy of Clover on your target medium.
       
      During install select again AptioMemoryFix but also additionally
      EmuVariableUefi-64.efi Install RC scripts on target volume because otherwise NVRAM doesn't seem to work
       
      After the install, copy
      config.plist contents of "Other" content of "patched" apfs.efi from drivers64UEFI to your new clover install.
       
      2.1 Edit DSDT for slumber
      This is necessary only once on initial install and every time, you edit or upgrade the BIOS. The DSDT.aml attached to this post might work for your system or give you a file to compare to. Don't expect it to work for you, though.
      I won't go into the details of DSDT extraction and patching. There are better guides (the linked guide is a rip-off of rehabman's guide from a different forum). Please follow such a guide to extract your ACPI data.
       
      Locate and disassemble the DSDT with the newest iasl binary you can put your hands on, then open it with MacIASL in its newest version you can find (Hint: Here is a good source) You can check if the version is new enough if MacIASL doesn't throw error upon compiling a freshly extracted DSDT.aml or DSDT.dst
       
      Add rehabmans repo (as per linked guide) and apply the following patches:
      Rename _DSM to _XDSM Fix _WAK Arg0 v2 USB3 _PRW 0x6D Skylake (instant wake) Find the CNVW device and remove the _PWR function there.
       
      Compile the DSDT and place it in "patched".
       
      2.2 Install kexts to system
      As mentioned in the install section, it's better to follow rehabman's instruction and install USBinjectAll.kext to /L/E:
      sudo cp -R Release/USBInjectAll.kext /Library/Extensions sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / 2.3 Enable onboard Audio
      This is where I'm not so happy currently, I'd like it to work without altering AppleHDA. But currently I find no other way.
       
      2.3.1 Install FakePCIID & FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio
      Rehabman tells us to use a kext installer to install it to /S/L/E. Chose the RELEASE folder
       
      2.3.2 Run CloverALC command
      Ensure your EFI partition is mounted before running this command
      Get the newest version of CloverALC command (audio_cloverALC-xxx.sh) and run it. Our Audio codec is RTL887 and I'm running with layout ID 1
       
      2.4 Optional steps
      If you have a dGPU, now it's the time to install its drivers and adjust the config.plist for it.
      This is out of scope of this guide. Yet, my supplied config.plist is ready to be used with Nvidia Pascal cards and using the Nvidia web driver.
       
      3. ToDo
      Move away from static DSDT patching to SSDT hotpatching --> requires my work Native NVRAM --> requires developer work Audio without AppleHDA patching --> requires developer work  
      4. Thanks to
      @MaLd0nfor helping finding the right way with the DSDT
      @RehabMan, for being a legend and helping me out patching
      @toleda, for audio patches for the 300 series
      /u/corpnewt, for his superb vanilla guide
      @wmchris for his super XPS 9550 guide and introducing me to hot-patching

      I have been having a pretty major issue with my new Hackintosh lately. It has been displaying broken link images in safari (See image 1). It has also had certain areas of artifacting such as the storyboard in Xcode (See image 2). and finally PDFs have been showing up completely blacked out (See image 3). This has been a big issue for me and I was wondering if any of you have had the same problem and have had any luck fixing it. I have already tried display calibration and switching to integrated graphics. Thanks in advance!
