[Guide] Install macOS Sierra 10.12.5 on GA-Z170X-Gaming 5

So I install clover in my macOS disk. and copy my EFI partition from USB to EFI partition on disk ?

You can install clover on your macOS disk and just replace these folders inside EFI/EFI/Clover with the ones you already have on your USB disk

 

APCI

config.plist

kexts

Theme

 

If you replace the whole EFI folder it will replace clover Bootloader files as well.

 

Or 

 

You can copy the EFI folder on your USB disk and to the EFI partition on your HDD then install the latest version of clover which will overwrites (updates) the existing clover Bootloader files but will leave the config.plist and your specific files such as ACPI files or kext folder untouched.

HELP!  :(

 

I just installed a security update for Sierra from the App Store and now the System crashes on boot.

I tried verbose, safe mode and single user. I even selected the option to not resart if boot fails, so I can get a screenshot, but it just keeps crashing.

I have a Mac where I could hook up the SSD to, to get the Logfiles. But where are they?

I am in the middle of mixing a record for a client so it would be great if someone could figure this out

Maybe the update was corrupted? But the installation went through without errors.

What a day.

Okay, I figured it it out. Everything is back to normal.

So I took out the SSD out of the Systen, connected it to my MacMini and booted it from there which worked fine.

Once booted, I got a pop-up saying no Graphics Card installed (of course)

I also got a notification that there was a new Nvidia webdriver available. Installed it, updated cuda as well.

Then I put the SSD back into the hackintosh, started it and boom everything worked fine again.

 

Apparently, the last update conflicted with the Nvidia Webdriver I had installed. Pretty scary.

GTX 750Ti -> RX 560

I had NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 750Ti and while it was working it had little bit lag in Sierra and now after moving to High Sierra it became even worse. It had quite a lag in iMovie and also Civilization. It seems that Nvidia has quite poor support in High Sierra. It maybe because of new Metal 2 which is in High Sierra. So I decided to try AMD. I found RX 560. Its inexpensive, fits in my small case and power is ok for me. 

 

What did I do?

I had uninstall NVIDIA web drivers.

Copy Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other

IGPU should be disabled in BIOS (I had it from before)

All this info is from here

Reboot and after some time it booted into High Sierra. (I was experimenting little bit in Bios, but I don't think I changed anything important). New thing was that after initial apple logo and running line it switch off monitor for few seconds and then you see directly High Sierra desktop picture.

 

My experience after few days is great. Everything is smooth, not lag at all. iMovie is without lag, Civilisation is much smoother then anytime in past. I had to reinstall Steam (but I am not 100% sure it was because of this change). So I am quite happy with this change.

S.O.S HELP… Computer won't POST after BIOS downgrade. :(

 

So I upgraded my BIOS from F22a to the latest Version (F22c). I did backup the previous Bios. But after the update the System wouldn't load clover. I got an error message from Wndows Boot Manager instead. Background: I previously had a second SSD with windows 10 installed in the System which I removed because I needed it for another Computer. But the computer worked fine the and booted to Clover without problems.

 

Since I didn't know how to get to clover again I decided to downgrade the BIOS to 22a again. The downgrade went through as supposed. The System restarted but it does not POST anymore and just restarts all over again. I removed the CMOS Battery and unplugged power. This reanabled the LEDs again (which I had disabled) but the System still does not POST. Do you think the BIOS chip is bricked?

 

I am desperade. What can I do?

Can you reach the BIOS/UEFI or it just a reboot loop?

 

If not it's probably bricked.

Follow these steps:

 

  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. ... 
  2. Remove the computer cover.
  3. Move the configuration jumper from pins 1–2, to pins 2–3.
  4. Plug AC power back in and turn on the computer.
  5. The computer should automatically boot into BIOS Set Up Maintenance Mode.

Thanks for replying. I am looking at the Motherboard Layout Schematics right now. All I can find is the Clear CMOS Jumper and that has only 2 Pins.

 

Where is this Configuration Jumper located? There's no mention of it in the manual or maybe I am to nervous to find it.

Those jumpers are the same as configuration jumpers. It should say CLR CMOS I guess. Your mobo has dual BIOS and you can use those jumpers to reset the BIOS. Short them with a screw driver or some metallic object while it's turned off and after that you can turn on the PC and see if it helps.

Unfortunately, I tried that already – same results. :(

 

I think it's bricked. But how? If it has Dual Bios…

 

Can I send it to Gigabyte for Service?

Well downgrading the BIOS is a risky procedure specially if the vendor doesn't allow it to happen normally, if I remember correctly Gigabyte won't allow the downgrade on our boards and it might void the warranty if you do so, but you can definitely send it to Gigabyte to get it fixed, I suggest you don't do anything else and send it right away before things get worse. There are plenty of guides on how to reset the BIOS on the net but I strongly suggest to avoid them and ask Gigabyte for help.

 

I had a guide on how to make clover the default bootloader after installing windows (which was not your case) but the principal were the same, I wish if you asked for help in that regard before downgrading the BIOS so I could help you with that.

 

But don't worry I believe Gigabyte services will fix your mobo. (and for free I hope)

Have you removed all RAM?

If not remove all.

Try boot.

If beeps. Replace 1 stick at a time.

 

Worst case strip the board down and reseat the cpu.

 

What code is displayed on the lcd?

I didn't downgrade in the sense of flashing an old BIOS, I just restored the one I had backed up with QFlash.

 

Removing and Reinstalling the RAM didn't help.

 

I think I am trying to get in Contact with Gigabyte now.

 

Thank you for your help and tips!

Well you can ask gigabyte if they will replace the BIOS for you for a surcharge. However you will also have to pay shipping for sending your mobo to them. And back again (both ways). Unless you happen to live close enough to the Gigabyte RMA centre in your country / region whereby you could go there to drop it off in person. Assuming they are OK with doing it for you.

 

Another option would be to search for 'BIOS CHIP GA-Z170MX-GAMING 5'

on ebay. Those people are based in the netherlands. Its not that expensive and they include shipping. However you will also need to replace one of the 2 BIOS chips on your motherboard. Its not too hard but you need to have good-enough soldering skills.

 

Another thing you can buy yourself is a SOIC-8 flash clip. Those things can be wired into an rPi or similar device, to create a hardware flasher. And then use that to reflash your existing BIOS chips in-situ without having to desolder them.

 

In fact if you bought both products you could read what was on product A and then flash it onto product B without doing any soldering... and then make also a backup of it for later use with your hardware flasher should you ever end up bricking the BIOS again.

 

I would also research on why situations occur when both the BIOS chips get overwritten with a bad image / setting. It shouldnt really ever happen. Even if you have downgraded as you say (and only downgraded on one of them.

 

Maybe what normally happens is that on the 2nd successful boot of a new BIOS image, if its still good then it will automatically overwrite the other backup BIOS chip from what new version you must recently updated onto your primary chip. Not sure though. So you will have to look into it yourself. And as you say... its still not supposed to brick both of them.

Thanks for the insight. I am just not good enough with soldering such small objects. I have bad eyes.

 

I will look into this flasher thingy maybe. I am going check if there are any Gigabyte Service Facilities in Germany first and try to contact them.

 

When I used QFlash the update to F22c it said "backing up old bios file" (or similar). So this should have written F22a to the secondary chip right?

And when I restored the previous backup it also said "backing up old bios file" it should have backed up F22c to the 2nd chip and install F22a on the first, I guess.

What a frustrating day.

I managed to get a replacement board off Amazon.

 

It works. But I have to Boot off of the USB Stick.

 

Because there's some Windows Residue in the Bootchain which blocks Clover from Loading and gives me a Bluescreen instead because it cannot find the WIndows SSD.

 

Can someone please tell me how I can fix this so clover starts from my SSD again?

Thank you very very much

Unfortunately, I don't have Windows on this machine any more. It was on another SSD.

 

Can I Take out the SSD and connect it to my NUC and then use the Windows Tool?

I doubt that it can read HFS+ Disks, or can it?

You can use Rufus to create a bootable USB disk with your Intel Nuc machine and boot it via USN and then edit the boot entries instead on disconnecting your SSD from your main machine and connecting it to your NUC.

 

See this post on how to use Rufus:

Okay, so I tried the folwing:

 

I connected my Hackintosh SSD to a Win10 Computer to edit its Bootloader Files with Bootice to save some time. I wanted to avaoid having to install windows. The good thing is, that the drive is recognized. BUT from the look of things it seems like Bootice can only change/edit the bootfiles in reference to the current machine it's on (C:) and not just any bootfiles on any disk.

.

Sooo... time for a windows to go install on an USB Drive.

 

Unfortuntely, Rufus CANNOT create a Windows to go version from an ISO downloaded and created with MS Media Creation Tool. The Option is simply not available in this case.I am trying wintousb now which takes forever.

      Installed Catalina 10.15.4 (19E287) Vanilla with OpenCore on my HP Elitedesk 800 G2 Mini.

      Everything is working (Wifi isn't but I'm using Ethernet anyway) but my second display.

      I'm trying to get them both connected via DisplayPort as the only other output on my computer is VGA.

      I've tried manually setting the framebuffer arguments, but I cannot get it to output to both displays. Yet if I unplug one and restart, it will use the other one just fine.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
