4K mini Kaby hackintosh, please checkup!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ahoy there!

 

I am looking at building my first vanilla hackintosh to drive a 4K display over Displayport.

Requirements for me are; speed, performance but not gaming.
I do realize I included a -K CPU, but the base clock of that model is far larger than the non-K version. (4.2Ghz vs 3.6Ghz)

 

CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K

MOBO/Case/PSU: AsRock Deskmini 110
Memory: Crucial CT16G4SFD824A
NVMe (PCI): Samsung 960 EVO 500GB

Bluetooth/Wifi: to be determined

 

Any thoughts? Thank you!

 

 

Kexts I would certainly need:

- FakeSMC ; to let it think I run genuine apple hardware

Fake CPUID ; to let it think I run Skylake instead of Kaby Lake

FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext ; to let it think I run Skylake graphics

'Skylake Glitch Fix' (AAPL,GfxYTile) ; no clue why

- VoodooHDA ; to let sound work (I think) AppleALC: native apple audio for non-apple hardware

IONVMeFamily.kext ; from macos, to let NVMe work at boot.

I think you got all the basics figured out, but in practice maybe you'll come across a couple of obstacles that could be resolved with a little research (usually settings on config.plist). I would only change VoodooHDA to AppleALC, Lilu combination kexts.

 

Best of luck and skills!

yeah, the basics (kexts plus settings) look fine BUT how do you drive your display? Your mainboard seems to have USB-C but that doesn't mean it has Thunderbolt support - and even if it had Thunderbolt - do you know if the HD630 can drive a 4K display? ASRock claims that the video output has to be either VGA, HDMI or DisplayPort...

Thanks! My mistake, I meant Displayport.  :)

Thank you! AppleALC doesn't mention adding support for other chipsets, so I assume the Realtek ALC283 is natively supported?

      Hi guys, stuck on problem of switching on my TV back from off state. I have asus H270f strix mobo with i7-6700K CPU (HD530), Clover 4722 and latest whatevergreen and lilu. I installed 10.14.1 on it and it works fine.  the m/b has dp, hdmi and dvi on board. I'm using dp + dp<->hdmi adapter to connect my mac to 4k tv which I'm using as a primary monitor. This connection supports 4k@60hz and I'm happy with the detailed and sharp picture I see on my tv. The problem is that when I get out for a while then, when I come back, I see my tv turned off by timeout and when I turn it back on, I see only the black screen. The computer works, I prevented it from going to sleep. To see the picture again on my tv I have to go to another computer, then, using screen sharing, I have to connect to my computer and then I have to choose couple of times different refresh rates in System Preferences -> Displays. After that I go back to my tv, see the picture and can continue to work. I made a edid report for my tv. may be somebody knows how to use this data to make my mac to wake up the tv correct way?
      Thank you, Dmitry

      So apple has presented a new and updated mac mini a few days ago, and the great news seems to be the use of desktop processors in it, in fact, all the specs seems to match a typical desktop socket 1151 v2 coffeelake system without a dedicated gpu, so i am wondering if the smbios of this machine could be our new smbios of preference for coffeelake desktop machines. So i have created this new topic to discuss about it. Of course we will have to wait to do tests using the first public version of mac os which integrates this smbios, because when every new mac is released it's smbios is available initialy just in a purpose made mac os build and then it's added for all the os builds in the following releases.
       
      So what do you think about the possibility of using this new smbios for desktop coffeelake machines instead of the imac 18.3/18.2 ones?

      Hello!

      Yesterday I decided to install Mojave on my hack and installed it, but in the process I ran into a problem - the monitor image flickers. I tried everything I could - different Properties in Whatevergreen, I tried without it, deleted DSDT, SSDT, which I did under the system, changed SMBIOS (iMac18,1, iMacPro1,1, iMac18,3, MacBookPro 15,2) and etc., but unfortunately nothing can fix the situation.

      The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to the 4k monitor LG 31MU97Z-B. If you connect the monitor to the system via HDMI, then the monitor works stably, but the PICTURE is PICTED in purple.

      Following the links below, I posted a video where the monitor's behavior was recorded:

      DisplayPort issue


       
      HDMI port issue


      Before moving to Mojave, I used macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2208), where everything worked like a clock.

      Archive with Clover folder also attached to the post.

      Help, please, in solving the problem, otherwise I have this working tool, and it's simply unrealistic to work for him.
