I am fairly new to the world of Hackintosh. I recently moved my previous build into a smaller form factor. However, I am running into a series of problems with the USB ports on the new case and the new motherboard.
- Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5
- 16GB Trident Z RGB 3200 MHz
- Sapphire RX 470
- NZXT Kraken x62
- NZXT H200 for the case
Everything in the Hackintosh works just like it did before, nothing changed in the hardware department other than the motherboard (previously a gigabyte Z20X Ultra) and the case.
This motherboard does not have any USB 2.0 ports in the back, there is only one header on the board, currently taken by the Kraken x62. The rest of the ports are all either USB 3.1 Gen1 or USB 3.1 Gen2, and the front of the case has 3.1 Gen1 ports as well.
This is my current problem:
When I plug something into either the type A or type C Gen2 ports, it works fine as a normal USB 3.x device with normal speeds, but when I plug something into any other USB port, it only works at lower 2.0 speeds. This is a big problem for me, since I have a few external devices that need the 3.0+ speeds and I don't know what to do.
I tried to follow many different guides on how to patch USB ports, remove the limits, etc... But nothing seems to work.
EDIT: MacOS Mojave 10.14 ONLY I didn’t test 10.14.1! The EFI folder is compatible with High Sierra.
Guide to installing 10.14 Mojave on a ASUS X555L
What doesn't Work:
-NVidia Web Drivers
Clover plist is downloadable in this topic.
First get a USB with 8+ GB of storage and a MacOS Mojave 10.14 installer from the AppStore.
Partition the USB in a GUID style and 2 partitions, one partition HFS+ and one partition FAT32.
In the FAT32 partition put the EFI Folder there.
On the HFS+ partition get the MacOS Mojave .app using this command:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USBNAME --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction
Put the USB in a 3.0 port on the LEFT side of the Notebook.
In the BIOS follow the default Hackintosh settings, do NOT forget to put Memory allocation to 64MB (Otherwise you won't boot)
Boot into the Installer and install MacOS Mojave.
Boot into MacOS. Now your Graphics are working but your WiFi and Sound are not! for the WiFi follow this video:
Once rebooted WiFi is working!
For sound get the VooDooHDA.kext and place it into /Library/Extensions
Reboot once again and your sound is now working flawlessly!
Clover r4747 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4747 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4747-X64 by double clicking on it.
2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
sudo diskutil mount disk0s1
3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
I hope someone can help me as I am struggling with this bloody installation.
I am running on several problems that I can't face : (
First of all my config:
Mobo: ASROCK H81M-DGS R2
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1220 v3 @3.10ghz
RAM: 16gb DDR3 1600Mhz
SSD: Crucial BX100 120Gb SSD
Monitor: Hp 27w Hdmi
POST Installation CLOVER
• System will not boot (clover boot loader do not shows up) from SSD
- System boot only with USB stick
• Screen Resolution is only 1024x768
• Monitor recognised as 17" instead of 24"
• Monitor identified as secondary
• Grafic Card Geforce GT710 shows 0 Mb
• System info do not match Config.plistin Clover
I attach screenshot of System Info, Kext in Clover, Resolution etc etc.
Please can someonhelp me?
Please can you tell me what is the Clover Parameter to activate when installing Clover (Clover_v2.4k_r4722) into Boot Disk?
I hope someone can help me out of this little troble: )
