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

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the Info.

 

I just updated to 10.12.6. The update worked without a problem.

 

But after the Restart, NVDIA Driver Manager informed me that there was a Web Driver update available. Version 378.05.05.25f01

Installed it restarted and then this happened:

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8S5ZzOJJP9fV3FUV0RScURYeDA/view?usp=sharing

 

So the Cuda Driver Panel pops up and says "Hey your Cuda Drivers require am update. BUT I tried updating via the PrefPane as well as havoing a look at the Cuda Drivers Site from Nvidia. And actually, THIS Version 8.0.8.3 is the latest Version. Weird. So, Do I just have to wait then?

I have the same issue with cuda

CUDA question?

Hello! Did not know until reading your posts ^ above today, that there were existed such CUDA drivers! There is some good benefit to it then? ... is it for rendering tasks in Premiere / Photoshop / other professional apps? Or does this help something else in os x?

Gaming 3 updated:

 

Anyhow I have fixed up all my Gaming 3 Clover configs today. Its available upon request (just PM me here). Updated for 12.6 today. I didnt do all this loads of DSDT patching to the max (like you guys for the Gaming 5). So mine has always been broken sleep function, it doesnt matter to me. Everything else seems fine. Many thanks for all help / knowledge coming back here. Just to update the CLOVER again for latest.

 

BTW whatever happened to Gaming 4 guys? Did we skip one? Hehehe. :thumbsup_anim:

Testing Metal:

 

And something for future: I find a list of perhaps 'metal' games?

 

https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/list-of-mac-metal-games.2045606/

 

We can try that list to to see which ones are the best for benchmarking metal (if they can at all). So to proper 'decent' testing for latest nvidia web drivers (will be hoping).

 

Actually I already posted on other forum thread about metal games list --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312525-nvidia-web-driver-updates-for-macos-sierra-update-07212017/?p=2467028

 

But maybe it should get its own thread (not to be lost in massive thread). :poke:

As far as i know, Cuda is nvidia's open cl implementation. It's used for handing over graphics tasks from Adobe After Effects, Premiere and other cgi apps to the gpu for faster processing. As far as this is concerned, cuda is faster than metal. But i haven't tested it yet. Since I only have a 560 ti oc, the i7 6700k on my board is probably faster by now as far as rendering is concerned. I am an audio dude, so i don't care much about graphics.

 

As far as games go, you want to stick to windows for that. Any pc based mac uses the hardware less efficient than an actual windows system. Macs are not built for gaming they are better at content creation in my experience. I am running windows 10 on ona second ssd and damn, it's snappy. Booting takes like 7 seconds.

Another Thing: Somebody told me that m.2 and NVME will be supported natively once High Sierra comes out. Is this true? Or does it work already? It's such a fast Interface. Would be great to run the OS from that.

Thanks.

 

I have an Intel m.2 SSD and it works, but I have to adjust the bios to:

 

Peripherals

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

Hi guys

 

just built the system yesterday (run out of CPU paste and used Toothpaste instead temp is currently  49-53 c  until Monday :)     )

 Everything is working fine  except Audio which i then used Voodoo audio  Kext  v.2.8.8 and works fine with no interference.

If anyone has issues please use the attach plist if using HD530 only

 

 

Thanks

You had better not be seriously using toothpaste as cooling compound. If you are shut down now and leave it off until you get thermal compound.

 

As for audio AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext with the right layout id should have sound working without issue.

 

Again I stress turn your system off if using toothpaste on your cpu.

Yup. Using toothpaste is a bad idea. I urge you to do what SavageAUS suggested ASAP. :no:

 

Toothpaste conducts electricity.

 

And I have a question how did you ran out off thermal paste? you only need a small amount of thermal paste to apply on the CPU if you don't want to choke the CPU with thermal paste. Applying lots of thermal paste doesn't necessarily mean you'll have more effect.

 

I have seen your config.plist and you have the Toleda's audio patches and you use the voodooHDA as well. You don't need them both. You can remove all the patches and only use voodooHDA or as SavageAUS suggested it's better to use AppleALC and Lilu. The Audio Layout ID is already set to 1 which is correct for lots of Audio components.

 

Also note that iMac14,2 is not suitable for SkyLake it' better to use the iMac17,1 SMBIOS. The CPU Power Management work be accurate with iMac14,2 on SkyLake processors.

I bought my board used with an unlidded 6700k and a Liquid Freezer 240 watercooler because I wanted a really quiet build. It's. Ideleing arount 28° C with the fans running in silent mode. The highest temperatures i witnessed so far were around 40 degrees. As far as toothpaste goes: I've seen some tests on YouTube. Unless the paste dries out it is ok, but not for long.

This is Off-Topics and I know. BUT:

 

IMHO there are lots of things that can be used for so many other proposes, Do we use them? Nope

 

For instance in theory you can use car Anti Freeze liquids in a water cooled environment but do we use them? I've seen some people do but I'm never gonna risk damaging my precious hardware because someone says so on the internet. It's my opinion.

 

Besides those thermal pastes or thermal pads are doing a great job and for so long why do we have to replace them with something that is designed for another purpose?

 

I know in @tinux's case he ran out of thermal paste and he will remove the toothpaste from his CPU as soon as he gets some thermal paste but in general it's wrong.

Hi guys I have a similar mobo Z170-UD5-TH, and I'm experiencing random wakeups. As if someone randomly pressed a key on keyboard or clicked the mouse, the display wakes up and then if I leave it alone for sometime the screen turns on and the PC remains awake until I login and put it back to sleep.

 

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to stop it?

I have power nap enabled, wake on lan disabled in bios and in energy saver too

@Unknown1221

I don't use sleep. I only put my displays to sleep when I don't want to use my pc. 

What is the state of Darkwake in the config.plist? or do you have a patched DSDT or do you use SSDTs?

I use darkwake=0 currently but have tried darkwake=8 too, which one do you recommend?
I have all the SSDTs from ssdtGen, ssdtprgen but no patched DSDT

Darkwake=0 and Darkwake=8 both work on my hack but darkwake=8 is more universal. Try darkwake=8 and see if it make any difference. Do yo have sound after wake?

Thankyou I'll give that a try again :)

Yes darkwake with both 0 and 8 have sound  after sleep by using codec commander

I have also tried just darkwake however I dont have sound after resume

do you think the clover nvram option 'disable sleep proxy client' could be of any use here?

You're welcome :)

I hope it resolves your sleep issue.

Which version of CodecCommander do you use? Do you use the 2.4.0 or newer version? Because 2.4.0 is the only one that seems to be working on GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 as far as I know.

Thankyou fingers are crossed :D

I am using the latest version, I have modified the kext options to match the ones of v2.4 for ALC1150 ;)
I had the same issue too that the newer version wouldn't work until I did that

I would preferably like to keep powernap enabled so my Hackintosh can backup using TimeMachine and check for new mail / imessages etc
how does everyones bios settings look like?

I currently have Windows 8/10 WHQL, IOAPIC 24-119 Entries disabled, CSM disabled, ERP enabled, WOL disabled, VT-D enabled (dart=0 flag), XHCI handoff enabled

Edit: I somehow had RC6 render standby enabled so I disabled that and sleep / wake appears to be working reliably again for now, will keep testing :D

I need your Help, guys! :(

 

I am really desperate here. Yesterday I installed the new Web and Cuda Drivers and today my system doesn't seem to recognize the Graphics Card any more. I haven't changed the config. The system just boots until abot 90 % of the progress bar and then just turns of. I tried disabling wenbrivers and temporarily switch to software rendering which worked before. Iknow the card is working because I am wrting this from windows 10 of the same Machine.

 

Is there a way to use the command line thing in clover at the startup to restore a previous config file?

I tried mounting the EFI Drives in windows in order to restore a previous config but it's over my head.

How do you guys fix issues like his when it just doesn't boot?

 

Thank you.

Thank you.

Can you send me your config.plist? Do you have access to your EFI partition in windows?

You can also boot with -x to run is safe mode and also boot with -v and take a snapshot of your progress so I can see what's wrong with your macOS boot process.

For activating the nVidia Web driver you need these settings checked in your config.plist:

 

Under boot: nvda_drv=1

Under System Parameters: NvidiaWeb

You might also need to install RC Scripts on the target volume

Have you tried booting with nv_disable=1?

        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.

      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.

      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.
