Recommended Posts

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!!!

- Front panel audio ports

 

So, resuming the system is working PERFECT! Like a charm! Everything works and the machine is CRAZY fast now! :D

 

Hope it goes fine for everyone too. Cya!

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.

Success with the Club3D HDMI to DP1.2!! If anyone is having issues getting 4k, thats the one to get. Everything now seems to be working perfectly. Thank you :).

Can you tell me if you got 10bits output with this DP1.2 cable?

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, I'm new to the world of Hackintosh. I write in this section because I have a problem with the graphics card of my laptop. As far as I understand from the web, it is not possible to use a dedicated graphics card on a laptop. So I'm trying to use the integrated processor one. The problem is that I have tried various procedures seen online, but in spite of this I cannot solve the problem. If you need this is the equipment of my laptop:

      Asus VivoBook Pro 15 N580VD-FI038T

      Screen: Led 15.6” 16:9 (Ultra HD 3480x2160).
      Chipset: Intel HM175.
      Cpu: Intel Core i7-7700HQ (2.80 GHz / 3.80 GHz, 4 core, 6 MB CACHE L3).
      Graphics Card: INTEL HD Graphics 630 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4 GB GDDR5.
      Hard Disk: SSD M.2 512 GB SATA 3.0 + SSD 750GB.
      Ram: 32GB DDR4-2666.
      Audio: audio stereo Harman Kardon.
      Webcam: webcam HD with integrated headphone.
      Lan: Intel LAN 10/100/1000, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2x2), Bluetooth 4.2.
      USB: 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1, 1 x HDMI, 1 x LAN RJ-45, 1 x jack
      Slot: 1 x SD.

      I hope there is someone who can help me with this problem

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F11c, 9900k with a 5700 XT but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware

      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)
