It's alive! Thx to the master MaLd0n and two good friends, Lucas David and Giesteira Paulo my new machine it's running the MacOS Sierra 10.12.4 PERFECT! SCREENSHOTS AT THE END OF THE POST.


First of all I want to say THANK YOU A LOT to Daniel (MaLd0n) da Insanely Mac (esse cara é um gênio), Giesteira Paulo, Samuel Cabral e Lucas David do Hackintosh Brasil.


GeekBench CPU Result:


THIS IS ONLY FOR THIS MOTHERBOARD:

 

Gigabyte z270X Aorus Gaming 5

IT WILL NOT WORK IN ANY OTHER MOTHER BOARD!!!

 

DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!

 

MOBO: z270X Aoros Gigabyte Gaming 5

PROC: i7 7700k + Cooler Master Hyper X212

GPU: MSI GTX 1070 8GB DDR5

RAM: 32GB Ram Crucial Elite

STORAGE 1: SSD 480GB Kingston

STORAGE 2: SSD 128GB Samdisk <- Place where I installed my MacOS

STORAGE 3: SSHD Seagate 1TB + Cooler HD 

STORAGE 4: HD Seagate 2TB

FONT: EVGA 600W BQ

 

So, this is what we did:

 

1 - Download this archive, you gonna use it during all the install.

z270x - i7700k - GTX 1070 - MacOS.zip

 

2 - Get a Sierra 10.12 image.

 

3 - Create a boot pendrive with WinDiskImage.

 

4 - Go to EFI partition on the pendrive, replace the “CLOVER” folder for the one inside the "Pendrive Boot Clover folder" from the archive on the step 1. Delete the original one and replace with the one inside the archive from step 1.

 

5 - Go to your bios and set these options (*really important ones):

 

- Bios

 

First boot - Pendrive *

Fast boot - disabled * 

Windows 8/10 features - other os *

Lan pxe boot option ROM - disabled

Storage boot control - UEFI *

Other PCI devices - UEFI

 

- Peripherals

 

Onboard lan Controller - enabled

Intel platform thrust technology ptt - disabled *

SW guard extension - software controlled

USB 3.0 dac-up 2 - normal

Front USB 3.0_1 - normal

Intel bios guard technology - disabled *

 

- Peripherals - USB configuration

 

Legacy USB support - enabled *

Xhci hand off - enabled *

USB mass storage driver support - enabled

 

- Peripherals - Sata and RST configuration

 

Sata controllers - enabled

Sata mode selection - AHCI *

Aggressive LPM support - enabled

 

- Chipset

 

VT-d - disabled *

Internal graphics - auto

All the other options - enabled

 

- Power Platform

 

Power management - disabled *

Ac back - always off

Power on by keyboard - disabled

Power on by mouse - disabled

Erp - disabled

Soft off by power button - instant off

Power loading - auto

Resume by alarm - disabled

Rc6 render standby - enabled

 

6 - Boot your pendrive and on the Clover boot screen choose the option "Boot Mac OS Install MacOS".

 

7 - In the first screen choose the language and than at the top menu open the application DISK UTILITY.

 

8 - Select the HD where you gonna install the OS and click on ERASE button. Use these options:

 

- Name: Any name you want

- Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

- Scheme: GUID

 

9 - Click on erase and wait for the formating.

 

10 - Close the disk utility and back to the install follow the steps, select the HD you already formated and perform the install.

 

11 - After the install, DON'T remove the pendrive yet. You need it to boot the system for now. Boot from pendrive and now on the Clover boot screen choose the HD you already installed the system, "Boot from MacOS".

 

12 - Now you have the system on, install the latest version of Clover boot (the install pkg is inside the archive from step 1). At the “INSTALLATION TYPE” screen, click on the “CUSTOMIZE” button and check the boxes only for these options:

 

- Install for UEFI Boot Only

- Install Clover in the ESP

- Bootloader -> Don’t update MBR and PBR Sectors

- Themes (any you want)

- Drivers64UEFI -> Fat-64

- Drivers64UEFI -> PartitionDxe-64

- Install Clover Preference Pane (optional)

 

13 - Click on install and finish the installation. Now you can remove your Boot Pendrive.

 

14 - Open the Clover Configurator and goes to the “MOUNT EFI”. At the right column theres a “EFI Partitions” box with all the EFI partitions. Look for the one of the mac and click on “MOUNT PARTITION” and then click on “OPEN PARTITION”.

 

15 - Inside the folder EFI there’s a folder called “CLOVER”. Repleace this folder with the one inside the “System Boot Clover Folder” which you can find in the archives you downloaded at the step 1. Just delete the original one on EFI partition and paste the other one in the same place.

 

16 - Run the Olarila.command inside the archives of the step 1 and wait for the “completed” message.

 

17 - Restart the system WITHOUT the boot pendrive. Go to the BIOS Settings and change the first option boot to the HD where u installed the MacOS. Save and reboot.

 

18 - Download this DMG and install the update from 10.12 to 10.12.4. THIS IS IMPORTANT! THE NVIDIA 10xx VIDEO CARD SERIES ONLY WORKS ON THIS OS VERSION!

https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1910?locale=en_US

 

19 - Now the last step, install NVidia Driver. Download the latest version of the NVidia Web Driver and install it.

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312525-nvidia-web-driver-updates-for-macos-sierra-update-04192017/(choose the latest version for your system - 10.12.4 in this case).

 

20 - Download and install NVidia Cuda Drivers:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/mac-driver-archive.html

 

YOU ARE READY TO GO!!!

Could this tutorial be applied to Gigabyte Z270X-UD5? Looks pretty similar. I intend to buy that mobo and i want to be sure. 

Thanks for this great work to everyone involved.

Thanks for your guide. Regarding the uploaded archive on mega.nz: I would recommend creating at least on other mirror that is not a one-click-hoster (preferably dropbox/google drive), since those hosters delete files after a certain time of inactivity, or randomly get closed down.

If the archive isn't too big, you can also attach it to your post. Or at least the smaller files.

Thank you very much for the guide!

 

I had to change a few things up for me, as it seems like my Pendrive that I was using to create the boot wasnt working properly (I was using a 64gb one, if that makes a difference). So I skipped the Boot Pendrive steps entirely.

 

What I did instead, is use another mac to install Sierra 10.12 directly onto the HD via USB. Then I installed the given Clover install onto the HD, and copied the given folder for "System". After that, I changed the Bios settings on the hackintosh, and booted it up through the HD and followed the steps to update it etc.

 

Works perfectly for me, however 4k does not seem to be working. I can get the hackintosh to run at home with my 144hz 1080p monitor via DVI, as well as my 1080p monitor via HDMI. However, when I bring it over to my studio, we have a 4k 60hz tv as the main display, and nothing seems to be working. I get the black screen, as if it isnt recognizing either the GPU or the display it self. I was able to plug in another monitor, and then plugin the 4k TV as a secondary and it seemed to work (however, only at 1080p as that is what my other display was, and it only works in mirror mode). Which leads me to believe it has something to do with the 4k. I have an HDMI 2.0 cable, and it didnt work through that (black screen on startup). I tried a HDMI to DP 1.2 adapter, still same thing. Next i will be trying a different HDMI to DP1.2 adapter that has been known to work with 4k for others. We will see how that goes, and if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I do realize that it appears that mac does not natively have support for HDMI 2.0, but some have gotten it to work with the HDMI to DP1.2 adapter, the one in particular is the one from Club3D.

To boot windows via Clover, try to re-enable the windows feature in your bios (where you changed by other OS). It worked for me and I am still able to boot to Sierra.

 

 

It cost nothing, give it a try :)

Can help me to fix some issues?

This is my PC:
    1. Cpu core i5 7600k

    2. Ram 16gb.

    3. Mainboard Gigabyte Aorus Z270x Gaming 5 (same your mainboard)

    4. SSD Plexton 128gb

    5. GPU: I use on-board gpu in first. I will buy rx580 later.

    6. PSU: Seasonic S12II 620W bronze 
I followed your step and installed successful Sierra. But I have 2 issues:

1. My graphic card only show graphic 7 mb

2. The sound is very low. I config max volume but it's very low. 

My system information show in PCI tab: Realtek ALC1220 Audio Controller: driver installed YES.

This is my first time I install hackintosh. Please help me to fix it.

Thank you so much.

For video editing/colorgrading and correction you need a dedicated monitor card something like the blackmagic design intensity pro or the blackmagic design intensity pro 4k or if you get the the ga alpine ridge pcie to thunderbolt add in card and the minimonotor and recorder external thunderbolt cards. Just using the graphicscard or the onboard graphics will not work very good.

 

If you want to watch movies or to game with your rig well thats another story.

      Hi guys,
       
      So, this little tutorial is meant to help people fix a new issue with Mojave: opening jpg files (looks like it happens with larger files, not so much with smaller ones) using Quick Look (on spacebar key pressed) or Preview app using the dedicated GPUs.
      The issue is that, when trying to open jpg files (for some reason, it doesn't occur with pngs), the pop-up window would remain in an endless loop. And from that point forward, any other app trying to open the same file, will either become unresponsive (in the case of the Preview app) or just stay in endless loop (in case of Quick Look)
       
      As a workaround, in case the tutorial below doesn't work for you, you can use Grab (built-in app in MacOS) to open said files.
       
      This issues DOES NOT occur using the iGPU. So...if you're comfortable using the iGPU, just switch to that and you should be good to go. You don't need this tutorial.
       
      This tutorial is based on @Cyberdevs' research and testing on this topic (especially useful if you're using an RX series AMD video card), and my own very limited time testing this on my rig. I just thought it would be useful to create a new thread for it so that people can discuss this particular issue here.

       
      With that being said, I'll just move on to the actual tutorial.
       
      New (probably better) method.
       
      Switch your SMBIOS in Clover config in regards to the dedicated GPU you're using, instead of the CPU. Take a look here and choose the corresponding SMBIOS closest to your hardware.
      Yeah, that's it.
       
      In case you lose CPU PM with this method, there are multiple ways to fix that, and they do not make the object of this thread.  It worked perfectly fine for me though and I didn't need to change anything else.
       
      In case you wanna try alternative medicine  ...
       
      The main thing we need to do is actually very simple: we need to enable the iGPU (integrated GPU) by default, in BIOS, while actually being connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      For ATI GPUs (curtesy of @Cyberdevs' post here).
       
      The discreet GPU should be set as primary in BIOS and your displays should be connected to your discreet GPU
      The iGD/iGPU/iGFX must be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as the secondary GPU.
       
      I removed the DSDT Reconfigured the config.plist to and removed some flags which weren't needed because of the DSDT added the InjectATI + Ornioco Framebuffer (I removed the Orinoco framebuffer because of some weird glitches but it might be useful for other AMD GPUs if you inject the correct framebuffer according to your GPU. No need to inject anything for nVidia GPUs unless your GPU needs it) Added the InjectIntel + ig-platform-id for my intel HD530 (for intel HD 530 I use the 0x19120001 ig-platform-id) Removed com.apple.finder.plist Removed com.apple.QuickLookDaemon.plist rebuild the kextcache and reset the nvram  
      Steps 5 to 7 might not be necessary I just did them anyway, if anyone succeeded to get quicklook working without those steps let me know so I can exclude those steps.

           Also confirmed to work with AMD R9 270X on a SandyBridge rig (without an iGPU) using WhateverGreen + Lilu kexts, which also helped to solve the transparency issue along with the Quick Look problem, it also resolved the buggy Screen Capture (Command+Shift+5) issue as well. 
       
          Also, do:
      nvram cleanup kextcache & prelinked kernel rebuild reboot  More info on that here.
       
       
      For NVIDIA GPUs
       
      This is what I needed for my NVIDIA rig and the MSI motherboard in the signature. Your milage may vary, depending on your hardware. But, the idea should be the same regardless.
       
         For MSi motherboads (check out my motherboard details in the signature)
       
      Set your BIOS to use PEG (dedicated GPU) so you can boot.
      Since you're reading this, chances are that you're already connected to the dedicated GPU and the BIOS is set to PEG. So just go into BIOS and see if you're using the iGPU or the dedicated (PEG) graphics device by default.
      If you're already using this, skip to Step 3 (the part AFTER Reboot). Reboot (I think you don't necessarily need to boot into the OS...but you do need to reboot at least until Clover UI) Reboot back into BIOS and set it from PEG to IGD (integrated graphics) WITHOUT removing the cable. Save Reboot again.  
         The result should be that the OS is tricked into thinking you're booting with the IGPU when in fact you're using the dedicated GPU.
       
         For Gigabyte motherboards
       
         Set:
      Peripherals -> Initial Display Output -> iGFX Chipset -> Internal Graphics -> Enabled
           DVMT Pre-Allocation -> default 64M.
           DVMT Total Gfx Mem -> default 256M Save Reboot  
         You should do this with the cable connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      You will also need to patch the iGPU from Clover config.
      1. Graphics -> Inject Intel (UNCHECK Inject Nvidia or ATI if it's checked).
      2. ig-platform-id (in my case for Intel HD 4600 Desktop) it was: 0x0d220003
       
      And use IntelGraphicsFixup.kext in Clover/kexts/Other. In my particular case, without the kext, I would get freezes in Safari.
       
      This might be a bug with Mojave and it could be fixed by Apple in the future. but in the meantime, feel free to use this if it helps you fix the issue.
       
      For HP motherboards (including laptops), so far no solution, unless the BIOS somehow allows to switch from eGPU to iGPU and vice-versa.
       
      Cheers!

      Introduction
      The H370 chipset powers 8th generation Intel Core-i CPUs. Even though the name H370 rings comparable to Z370, the H370 is based on newer silicon. This it also requires some new approaches compared to the Z370. 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 for MacOS Access and configure the BIOS 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 power management (without any kext or patch) All USB ports (and only those present are active) 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)  
      Changes to the guide:
      22.5.18: Added SSDT hot-patching to enable sleep, replacing DSDT static patching as an alternative.
      23.5.18: Add iMac18,1 as alternative SMBIOS config for those relying on the iGPU for output
      25.6.18: Added update info
      28.8.18: Smalle changes for clarity, changed info for afps loading & updated USB patch for 13.6
       
      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, leaving the others on default: 
       
      UEFI driver: AptioMemoryFix UEFI driver: ApfsDriverLoader 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 Note: If you aim at using the iGPU for output, a user reported that iMac18,1 works better - since iMac18,3 produces sever flicker. Look at the graphics section and adjust the injection for Intel to your situation  
      Fixes

      Patches

      Devices

      Graphics
      Important:
      Change 0x59120003 to 0x59120000 if you don't use a dGPU as your main display Driver and instead use the iGPU for output.
      Also note. SMBIOS iMac18,1 has been reported to work better in this configuration. But 18,3 works fine for me.

      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 ACPI for slumber
      Choose one option, not both. The hot-patch is experimental, but for the moment it is stable.
       
      2.1.1 Edit DSDT
      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".
       
      2.1.2 Use SSDT hot-patching
      Instead of having to re-extract and re-patch the DSDT on every BIOS change or update, Hardware change one can also use ACPI hot-patching.
      It's a combination of config.plist patches and an SSDT, which is hot-patched into the ACPI (if I understand the process correctly)
       
      You need to add this SSDT-GPRW.aml to your Clover folder in the designated position at Clover/ACPI/patched You need to add this patch to your config.plist. It goes into the DSDT patch section  
      Note: This works for me, but the patch removes the _PRW method from all devices in the DSDT. This could have side-effects. So far, I have seen none. At the moment I'm also not applying any other patch, compared with the additional edits I made to the DSDT method before.
       
      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. Updating
      Updating inside 10.3.x point updates doesn't require much attention:
      Download the update from the AppStore as any Mac would do Allow the system to reboot Before booting MacOS with Clover, make sure to disable extra drivers for dGPUs which require non-native support. If using an Nvidia dGPU: Remove "nvda_drv=1"  from your boot arguments and disable Nvidia injection If using a non natively supported AMD card, do the same for AMD (I'm not using AMD, thus I cannot be specific) Boot into the newly created Install MacOS partition Repeat this process until the Install partition is gone Boot MacOS again, still following 3., and potentially install updated drivers Your Audio might require re-patching  
      4. 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  
      5. Thanks to
      @MaLd0nfor helping finding the right way with the DSDT
      @RehabMan, for being a legend and helping me out patching
