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

519 posts in this topic

Clover is up to date. So I copied the Kexts other to the "other" Folder. Still the same Panic as before it seems...

 

Do you have a tutorial on how to migrate to High Sierra? Maybe that resolves the issue...

 

If you updated the version of the clover it might help to place them inside the other folder. I migrated to macOS high sierra and since then I use the “other” folder

Okay, so I figured it out:

I installed Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext using Kext Wizard and I was wondering, why I did not see them under Library > Extensions. I thought, maybe the tool sucks, so I downloaded ##### which showed me 2 paths for Extensions. So, when I had a look at the 2nd path (HDD > System > Library > Extensions) I saw that Lilu was there, but also BOTH of the conflicting fixes NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext AND NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext were there. It all made sense now...

Previously, I had put NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext AND NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext in my Clover Kext Folder.

So these BOTH got injected into HDD > System > Library > Extensions and REMAINED there even after deleting them from the EFI Partition. doe....

So, I just deleted NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext from the System > Library > Extensions Folder, reboot and bingo, everything is back to normal. A whole day wasted on this isht, FML.

I performed a direct update from macOS Sierra 10.12.6 to High Sierra 10.13.3 (Full Installer) and all went smoothly the only thing that needs to be added to the Clover's EFI folder is the APFS.efi which can be found under \Usr\standalone\i386 on the macOS High Sierra installer. This file is necessary if you use a SSD because in the update process macOS will update the HFS format to APFS.

 

You need to add this file to Clover's EFI folder under: \EFI\Clover\Drivers64UEFI otherwise Clover's won't be able to detect and boot from the new APFS formatted SSD.

 

If you are using a nVidia GPU you'll need to update the web drivers according to your GPU's model and the macOS's build number.

 

Important note:

 

If you ever decide to update your existing macOS Sierra to High Sierra make sure you have a backup of your data and the EFI folder just incase something goes wrong.

 

I know I was suppose to create a guide but unfortunately being busy at work prevents me from doing so.

If I find the time I will create the guide and I will post it in a new Topic.

 

That being said I have to say nVidia web drivers are not working as smoothly as Sierra (at least with my GPU) so that's another reason for the delay on the Guide because the performance of the system specially in the GUI and the metal performance is a bit laggy.

 

If you need more explanations just let me know.

 

 

Good Luck.

Thanks for the insight. Since I have High Sierra running on my macmini I could test it a bit and decided to stay away from it on my main machine.

 

Because I don't like the way High Sierra handles the installation of audio plugins. After installing plugins they won't be recognized by the host unless you reboot the system. But I don't have the patience for a current OS handling installs like Windows 98. ;)

You're welcome :)

 

I don't know about the Audio plugins and the reboot issue you just mentioned but personally I'm waiting for the next update from apple and the nvidia to see if they fix the lags or not, otherwise I might go back to Sierra for the time being.

 

The lags are making my rig almost useless unless I use the previous nVidia Web Drivers.

I think I am going to stay with sierra and wait for what's coming next or until Apple forces me to upgrade again by chainging Logics minimum OS version requirements…

That sounds like a good idea. Sierra was pretty stable on macs and hacks but I’m experiencing weird behavior and decrease in performance on several iMacs as well so it might be better if we stay on sierra for now

I had same experience, so I moved to AMD card and everything is smooth. Its smoother even then on Sierra with NVIDIA.

I updated mine about 3 weeks ago, but it says F22d in the BIOS, I checked gigabyte's website and it's F22f. There is no F22d That's Weird! I used QFlash.

Does it have any effect on the nVidia's lag or it's the same?

I've rolled back to the 104 drivers but will test newer drivers tomorrow and let you know. Every other bios for this board has flashed fine with qflash except F22f.

Hey buddy,
I was testing the new 10.13.4 beta 7 and I noticed that sound after sleep doesn't work anymore, does it work on your rig?

Updating bios did not help lag situation so back to 104 drivers. I'll check sound after sound once the 10.13.4 update is done and update post.

Update to 10.13.4 went smooth, still using .104 drivers. I have audio after sleep, i have made no adjustments. Just make sure codeccommander is installed in S/L/E or L/E, mine is in L/E and config.plist still has darkwake 8.

Hi! 

Want to notice that with new AppleALC.kext there is no more need to use CodecCommander and darkwake= !

Sound after sleep work like it should.

with these kext list(Other) and AptioMemoryFix.efi(Drivers64uefi):

AppleALC.kext
AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext
FakeSMC.kext
IntelGraphicsFixup.kext
IntelMausiEthernet.kext
Lilu.kext
WhateverGreen.kext
 

I have all my hardware works on 10.13.4 and no issue with sleep.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (February 2020) Updated to Clover r5104 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Updated acidanthera VoodooPS2 kext v2.1.1 the older 1.9 to the Misc Folder as an option.
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      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.

      Im having similar issue with my HS setup, dell latitute 3480, i5-7200U
      Once the hdmi plugged in, the laptop display went blank, only could see the external tv
      But, when i put my laptop to sleep & wake up again, both screen got display (hdmi still connected)
      Even the hdmi could be plugged off & in (after sleep), the laptop display is fine

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?

      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:
       

       




       
       
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       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)  
      Notes:
       
      2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing
      2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list
      2020.01.12: Tested system with OC, added more informations to BIOS settings
      2020.01.11: Added SmallTreeIntel82576.kext for 2nd Ethernet, Tested Ethernet ports

    • By Andres ZeroCross
      First i will give you information about my specification
       
      Processor : Intel Core i7 6700
      Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3
      RAM : Team DDR4 8GB (2X4GB) 2133Mhz - up to 3000Mhz at XMP Profile
      Graphics Card : Palit Jetstream GTX960 4GB DDR5
      SSD and HDD : Fujitsu F200 for System + 500GB Seagate connect with add on PCI-e to Sata 3 Asmedia ASM1062 Chipset
      Other harddrive : 1 Natno SSD, 2x 2TB Seagate, 2x 500GB Seagate connect with internal SATA Controller Interface
      Wifi Card : TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      Monitor : 2x Asus VN248H (HDMI and Display Port with Converter)
      I need 2 new hardware to support this
      a. PCIe to Sata with 2 Ports Sata (because i use 2 important storage)
      b. PCI to USB 2.0 with NEC Chipset (i Plug USB Keyboard, Mouse and USB Installer here)
       
      My steps :
      1. Make USB installer El Capitan 10.11 Public Release with CreateinstallMedia method
      2. Install Clover Rev 3280 into it
      3. Basic configuration for BIOS (Disable serial port at IO section in bios, Boot with UEFI Mode,  Primary Graphics set to PCI-E, Sata Controller = AHCI, CSM Support = Disable, OS Mode = Windows 8/10 WHQL)
      4. My Masic Configuration for Config.plist (open with Clover Configurator Version 4.24)
          ACPI = tick FixHpet, AddDTGP, FixHDA, New Way, Delete Unused, AddHDMI, Drop OEM_DSM of HDA and SATA.
          Bootflag = nv_disable=1 -v dart=0
          Devices = USB Inject, Add Clock ID, Fix OwnerShip, Audio Layout = 2, Reset HDA
          Graphics = There is no change here
          Kernel and Kext Patches = FakeCPUIID 0x00306F2 and tick KernelHasswellE (Please anybody,, i dont want use this. Latest El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta is supported native to this processor right. Help me with kernel so i don't need to use fakeCpuIID again) I I use Clover R3292 and i don't need to use FakeCPUID again,, just tick Kernel Haswell-E and it will boot. So you need to use Clover R3292 and later
          Rt Variables = BooterConfig 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig 0x067
          SMBios = First i use SMBios MacPro 6.1 but later i just need to use iMac17,1 because My System build is identical with iMac17,1 hardware (SkyLake System)
          System Parameters = Inject Kexts Detect and Tick Inject System ID
      5. Boot from Your USB Installer and do everything like normal until you get into desktop
      6. Install Kext Utility,  
      7. Copy "AppleGraphicsControl.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to Desktop and then edit info.plist at "AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist" and look at OKitPersonalities->AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy->ConfigMap and change "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - Config1" to "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - None". Reinstall this kext with Kext Utility.
       
      Note : the reason you need to "Config1" of "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6" because it's BOARD-ID for MacPro6,1. so if you use SMBios of iMac17,1 then Check your Board-Id (you can use Clover Configurator and open your config.plist and see your Board-id at SMBios Section) and change "Config2/Config1" to "none". Now i use "Mac-DB15BD556843C820" as my Board-ID because i use iMac17,1 SMBios  so i need to change ConfigMap that related to it 
       
      8. Install Nvidia Web Driver version 346.03.02f02, and restart.
      9. Change bootflag "nv_disable=1" to "nvda_drv=1"
      10. After you get into desktop, get Latest Beta Build 10.11.1 Seed. You need to change seed catalog update first (google it).
      11. Do update to 10.11.1 Build 15B38b and restart
      12. Boot again with bootflag "nv_disable=1", and copy "NVDAStartupWeb.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to desktop. And open info.plist at "NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist". Look at "IOKitPersonalities->NVDAStartup" and change "NVDARequiredOS - 15A284" to "NVDARequiredOS - 15B". Save,, and reinstall this kext with Kext Utility
      13. IMPORTANT, if you use SMBIOS MacPro 6.1 or iMac 15.1 and some type (I forgot) then do "7Th Step" above again.
      14. Restart and reuse "nvda_drv=1"
      15. Now you have El Capitan 10.11.1 at your SKYLAKE Computer
       
      Problem
      1. Internal Sata is still not function, it show "Intel 10 Series Chipset" but "unknown" for Harddrive Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      2. USB 3.0 is not function too, but it shot at USB System Report Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      3. When you open Browser Applications, Movies or Something like that then it will freeze for 10 seconds. I check console and i found "NVDA(Graphics): Channel exception! Exception type = 0x8 DMA Engine Error (FIFO Error 8)" Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      4. Address of Sound HDEF is different with my DSDT. Normally it should be "0x001B0000" but at my board's DSDT is "0x001F0003". So ScriptCommand of Toleda for ALC is not work anymore, we need to change that script command from HDEF-B to HDEF-F (just look at the script)
      5. We need to change Device HDAS to HDEF at address "0x00fF0003", but something weird after 5times my system freeze and i look at Audio System Report it suddenly show all of AUDIO Interface , before not. Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      6. I look at my Graphics/Displays Sytem report and at PCIe Lane Width, it show "x4" or "x8". Damn,, it should be "x16". It will random change after freeze from "x4" or "x8" My bad, i just need to plug out and plug in again. Just assembly case
