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

Recommended Posts

You will need minimum Clover r4084 ! and a SSD drive ( APFS is  too slow on HD )

By the time I wrote that clover 4079 was the latest clover out there, but it wasn't working without adding the Frimware Features, but thanks to clover 4084 we don't need to add firmware feature anymore.

 

Here is the EFI folder for macOS High Sierra DP

 

It's still work in progress.

Sound after sleep isn't working even with CodecCommander 2.4.0 in SLE and darkwake = 8.

Maybe somebody can say something about Voodoo and sleep?

Sleep doesn't work on High Sierra?

I believe I tried the sleep once and it was working.

 

I used the latest version on Lilu.kext and the -lilubeta , -alcbeta boot flags.

 

I'll test it once more and get back to you.


It doesn't even go to sleep.  :hysterical:

 

I reinstalled macOS High Sierra yesterday and It's not working.

To be honest I didn't spend much time testing it because my GPU don't work with High Sierra, so I didn't see any point on investing much time and effort on it.

When I last posted, I was having trouble getting my USB 3.0 external drive recognized.

After spending time away from this topic (adopted new pets that stole my attention) I sat down this afternoon to do some troubleshooting.

I tried connecting a variety of Seagate USB 3.0 drives from my collection to the cable - and none of them were recognized.

 

I then tried moving the cable from the current jack to another 3.0 jack.  This time - it worked.

Looking at the MB manual - it appears I originally had the cable in a 2.0/3.0 jack - which is the 2nd USB port below the ethernet jack.

 

It's a bit confusing - since the manual shows there is a LAN1 and a LAN2 port, yet my MB only has a single Gig ethernet port.

 

Now I can finally get a recent timemachine backup.

 

***

 

With that issue behind me - I did run into a new one.

I'm not sure I ever tried iBooks prior to today since I installed Sierra (using the original guide) and if I attempt to open a book via IBooks, it APPEARS to launch the book OK - in that the cover is briefly displayed - but then when the book is supposed to open and display your current page - that window is transparent and shows what is beneath it.

 

There are no controls visible whatsoever for closing the book - but the ones in the menu work fine - which once again, shows the "All Books" view.

 

I have tried many of the books in my collection - and all display the same way - so it's definitely something wrong with the application, and not the data files.

I've even added a new book - and attempting to open it - results in the usual transparent window effect.

 

Has anyone else ran into this?

If not - then hopefully this will be fixed when I re-install Sierra.

 

The NVidia driver manager tells me I am using the latest version.

@strifecrafter

 

If you have only on LAN port then your mainboard is not GA-Z170X-Gaming 5, It might be Gaming 3, Z170MX-Gaming 5 or Z170N-Gaming 5. Check the layout of the ports on the back panel and see which one matches your mainboard or just open the case and see the model that is printed on the mainboard. AFAIK all reversions of the Z170X-Gaming 5 mainboards have two LAN ports.

 

About the iBooks, I have the exact transparent window when I open a book ePub or PDF so you're not alone. I removed the preference file for the iBooks but it didn't help.

I haven't tried anything else because I rarely use iBooks on my computer.

@SavageAUS Have you tested it yet?

Yes and working fine. I have booted Windows 10 and Sierra with it just fine, havnt tested HS yet. Appears more settings for cpu like intel speed shift and hyper threading. Can actually set the turbo for each core not just single core turbo.

There is some setting for decoding above 4k also.

Finally I did it! 

Working HD530 + RX480.

Hi. My first post here.

 

I just finished my built. I have a Zotac GTX 560 TI OC which is worfking fine after installing the webdrivers and injecting them. But I also want to use the Integrated Graphics of the i7 6700k as well for a third monitor.

 

So, I enabled the Integrated Graphics in the BIOS and installed the IntelGraphicsFixup.kext  but the Display doesn't turn on. Do I have to copy over some of the lines from the config.plist for the HD530 Install? Can you tell me how you did it?

 

Thank you.

I have the EU version of this mobo.


 


Differences:


 


BIOS:


CSM Support = Disabled # missing


Secure Boot = Not Active # missing


Attempt Secure Boot = Disabled #missing


 


For my fusion drive with m.2 SSD I had to adjust:


 


Peripherals


SATS And RST Configuration = SSD | Aggr. LPM Support= disabled


 


Otherwise the fusion drive has been vanished after a reboot.


 


 


To get wake after long sleep I have to set:


 


sudo pmset -C autopoweroff 0


 


Without this the Hack is going from sleep to shutdown.


 


 


Thanx for your great guide!!!

I have the EU Version as well. Mine runs on F21 currently, but there's a newer one available, Version 22a.

 

I am not so good with this whole Hackintosh Stuff. Maybe you could help me out?

 

How do I get both GPUs running? I have a GTX 560 TI which is working fine but I'd also like to get the HD 530 working as well. I used the EFI Files from the NVIDIA Package for getting the system running. Or should I have started with the Intel Package and install the GTX afterwards?

 

Thank you. Very helpful Guide, btw!

Thanks :)

 

For having both GPUs you can do it either way. what I mean is you can have the iGPU setup first and add the nVidia or the other way around.

All you need to do is to use the IntelHD 530 config.plist that I posted in the first topic and add the necessary flags for the nVidia as explained in the guide.

 

You need to have these kext to your EFI folder:

Lilu.kext

IntelGraphicsFixup.kext

nVidiaGraphicsFixup.kext

 

also add the Inject Intel=True with the ig-platfrom-id for your iGPU which is 0x19120000

Thank you very much. I will try that later.

F21

Sleep works with darkwake=0 and darkwake=8 both on my system. the reason that I wrote darkwake=8 in the guide was because in the tests that we conducted with @SavageAUS it seemed that darkwake=8 is working on more systems that darkwake=0 so we decided to go with that.

Sleep works with darkwake=0 and darkwake=8 both on my system.

 

I have darkwake=8 in my config.plist but i had to add autopoweroff 0 in pmset for proper sleep.

And until now with no errors or fails.

        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 (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.

      Trying to install Mavericks on an Asus H170M-E D3 motherboard, Skylake I3-6100 cpu, Intel 530 graphics.
      Last message I see is "root device uud is" and a series of "+++" but then it just stops.
      Have prepared usb with createinstallmedia, added Clover 4413 and changed a few settings with Configurator.
      Any help is welcome.

      First of all I want to thank all the people in advance who helped make this happen all the credit goes to them, I just gathered what I’ve learned from them.
      Pike R Alpha, RehabMan, Majonéz, Yassinex, Toledo, Todeleda, TheRacerMaster, OiCKilL, Andres ZeroCross, bomerr and many other great minds who helped me out. If any name/s is/are left out please let me know so I put it/them right here.
      These are my specs:
      Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 5
      Intel Skylake 6700K @ 4.0 GHz up to 4.2 GHz
      4x8 GB 2666 DDR4 GSKILL RIPJAWS Memory Modules
      Kingston HyperX Savage 240 GB 6Gbps SSD
      AMD Radeon HD7790 1 GB GDDR5
      TP-Link WDN-4800
      CoolerMaster Nepton 120XL Cooling Unit
      CoolerMaster V750-Gold Power Supply Unit
      CoolderMaster Silencio 452 MidTower Case
       
      BIOS Settings:
      In BIOS from M.I.T. choose Advanced Memory Settings
           I. From Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.) I Choose [Profile1] it's crucial to choose this option if you want your memory modules work with their full frequency.
           II. Enter the correct System Memory Multiplier which in my case based on my 2666MHz DDR4 it must be 26.6.
           III. Select [Enhanced Performance] from Memory Enhancement Settings. You can choose any of the options I chose Enhanced Performance.
           IV. From BIOS Features Fast Boot is disabled, Windows 8/10 Features is set to Windows 8/10 WHQL, LAN PXE Boot Option is disabled, CMS Support is Enabled, Storage Boot Option Control is UEFI Only, Other PCI Device RPM Priority is UEFI Only and Network Stack is Disabled and Secure Boot State is Disabled.
           V. From Peripherals: VT-d is disabled, Internal Graphics is set to Auto, Audio Controller is Enabled, Audio DSP is Disabled, PCH LAN Controller,SATA Configuration is set to AHCI, Wake on LAN and High Precision Timer are Enabled. I didn’t patch my BIOS because of a great job that Pike R Alpha did with a kext based patch for Skylake processors and to patch the AppleACPI.kext.
      Under Super IO Configuration Serial Port must be disabled as well.
      UPDATE: I recently updated my BIOS to f5h and IOAPCIEntries 24-119 Entries is there so if you are using that version of the BIOS or anything prior to original f4 you don't need to use the ACPI patch.
           VI. Save your new settings and reboot.
      Here is a copy of my EFI folder which works great with this configurations, Just remember I didn’t inject any Graphic Adapters so you have to configure it with yourself based on the graphic adapter you are using.

      Comment: Rename HDAS to HDEF
      Find* [HEX] :48444153
      Replace [HEX] :48444546
      Set the following flags under Boot section:
      kext-dev-mode=1 and rootless=0
      The audio won't work by default, you need to install Toledo's audio driver or install VoodooHDA.
      Toledo's commands are available at: https://github.com/t...audio_CloverALC
      and
      VoodooHDA is available at: http://sourceforge.n...ects/voodoohda/
      I personally use VoodooHDA instead of Toledo's script because for some unknown reason with Toledo's audio kexts and script while I was playing musics after a few minutes I could hear a noise which was getting worse so I tried VoodooHDA and now it work perfectly fine.
      My audio layout is set to 1.
      FYI: If you are going to use VoodooHDA just remember after you installed the VoodooHDA there will be a file in your application folder called "VoodooHdaSettingsLoader" which you need to place it in your login items in system preferences under "Users and groups" ---> "login Items" and adjust the "input Gain" under "VoodooHDA" in system preferences to avoid the hissing sound every time the OS starts. and if you don't every time you restart the system you'll need to adjust your audio settings. By loading this application OS will remember you settings and load them.
