GA-X99-Gaming 5P - 10.13.0 - Success! (Waterdragon)

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is a continuation of the thread here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/310187-ga-x99-gaming-5p-10112-success-waterdragon/page-2

 

Current config:

GA-X99-Gaming 5P

    - Atheros 2200e  Network Card

    - Creative Core3D Sound Card (CA0132)

Intel Core i7-6900K @ 3.7 Ghz

32 GB RAM - 2133 MHz

N760 2GD5/OC ITX (MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760)

GTX 1080 (not installed yet)

1x4K Dell display, 1x2K Dell Display , 1xFHD TV

Lots of HDDs and SSDs

 

BIOS settings:

 

EHCI hands-off Enabled

XHCI hands-off Enabled

BOOT settings set to Other OS , UEFI only

 

 

No DSDT installed.

 

After a few days of tinkering around I've managed to get most stuff working.

Things that still need tweaking:

- shut down sometimes doesn't work  fixed by using SMBIOS 14,2

- sound card is not working  - fixed by installing DRAM and DSDT drop tables options in Clover

 

Only issue so far: Front microphone port is not working.

 

Got everything going fine for now.

At the end will post my Clover EFI file.

Hello mate..

Works your USB 3 ?

can u please upload your clover folder ?

here it is: https://www.mediafire.com/file/4je78hsy6600hwm/EFI%20v3.zip

Keep in mind I don't have Realtek Audio, but Creative and different GPU. My GPU has native MacOS support. I also use SMBIOS 14,1 not 6,1 .

 

 

Hard to say.

All back USB ports work but probably not as they should. The front USB ports I can't verify because I don't have the front panel connected.

 

They are probably working not as they should because of this:

The USB receivers are actually on USB 2.0 ports. https://www.mediafire.com/file/439m0efc2d3g1ym/Screen%20Shot%202017-10-01%20at%2010.47.09.png

 

I initially only had the X99_Injector USB 3.kext and added the USBX99.kext later , but the later kext doesn't seem to make a difference.

If you have any clue on these two kexts let me know.

 

Right now I am looking for a fix for my Creative CA132 audio and maybe some other Gigabyte Specific SSDT/DSDT patched to improve system stability.

This is the final version of Clover settings:

- This is only for MacOS 10.13 

- I am using the 6900K 8 core cpu so for a different CPU you will need to make the appropriate changes

- note I am using GTX 760 video card, so you may need to remove the NVIDIA patch from the ACPI/patched folder.

- you will need to run the appropriate patches and changes for your video card to work

 

Please read this thread for how to adapt this Clover file to your video card and cpu, provided you use the same motherboard: 

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/the-perfect-customac-pro-macos-high-sierra-10-13-on-x99-full-success.227001/

 

Everything seems to be working fine except for the Front Sound Panel. Sound on the back ports is working fine.

will the gtx 770 work with high sierra?

Yes it will. It has the same GK104 chipset as the GTX 760. Careful with the SMBios though, I've tried with 16,1 initially and the video card did work well with that one, works well with 14,2 and possibly with 6,1 , haven't tried any other.

Thank you bro,

i will try in my different motherboard and I will let you know  :yes:

I am on High Sierra too and everything seems to be working fine for me. I would suspect it's something in your Clover settings.

Thanks for the build info!

 

Have you upgraded to 10.13.3 yet?

How is sleep and wake working? Any tweaks needed or works on? How many cycles of sleep/wake have you tested? Thanks!

      So I got this working for me:
      http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327022-nvidia-oob-for-2-x-4k-60hz-displays/
       
      Everything worked fine with both cards until last month when I scratched my GTX 760 ITX and had to buy a new.
       
      Today my new GTX 760 ITX arrived and I installed it, but my system no longer boots into macOS.
      The only way to get it to boot is if I completely remove from the slot the GTX 1080. I tried just removing its power cables but still MacOS won't boot.
       
      Everything is fine as long as the GTX 1080 is not present in the system. If it is I get this error:
      IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
      H000-A newUserClient failed: 0xe00002cd
       
      Any ideas?
       
      Thank you
       
      Edit:
      I think the issue might be related to the PCI order. Though I don't remember changing it.
      I get:
      GeForceSensors (pci2): VBIOS successfully read from PROM
      GeForceSensors (pci2): chipset: GP104 (NV134) bios 86.04.17.00
      GeForceSensors (pci2): started
      GeForceSensors (pci4): VBIOS successfully read from PROM
      GeForceSensors (pci4): chipset: GK104 (NVE4) bios 8-.04ea00

      Dear all,
       
      So I set out to build a new machine, which will eventually be fully watercooled.
      The specs are:
       
       
      GA-X99-Gaming 5P
          - Atheros 2200e  Network Card
          - Creative Core3D Sound Card (CA0132)
      Intel Core i7-5820K
      16 GB RAM - 3000 MHz
      GV-N75TOC-2GL (Gigabyte 750 Ti)
       
      Lots of HDDs and SSDs
       
      I've decided to go with OS X 10.11.2 (El Capitan) and Clover.
      Clover is installed on a separate small SSD of 32GB. This way I can fiddle around with different OSes installed on different drivers.
       
      The installation went without a problem by following the instructions on http://www.rampagedev.com .
      I had to add a number of extra kexts to get everything working and had to boot with nv_disabled = 1.
      To get the video card going with all ports I needed at first to "Inject Nvidia" from Clover, install the web drivers and than remove "Inject Nvidia".
      The USB ports are a bit messed up, in the sense that some ports are reported as USB 2.0 , but they seem to be working at USB 3.0 speeds. On the other hand all USB ports are working.
       
      When everything will be working properly I will post a zip with all the kexts and configs that got this machines going so others can use them.
       
      Remaining issues:
      1.
      The sound card is not working.
      I had some progress using this http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309283-creative-ca0132-g1sniper-m3-patch-for-applehda-or-voodoohda/ andthis http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309441-new-applehda-patcher/?p=2194865.
      But I have no output or output control on any of the ports. I will continue to investigate.
       
      To get the motherboard to work with AppleHDA check this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309283-creative-ca0132-g1sniper-m3-patch-for-applehda-or-voodoohda/?p=2207706
       
      For a working AppleHDA please check the same thread. I will return with full Clover configs and kext.
       
      2. Clover doesn't boot from "Last Boot Option", always asks me to choose.
       
      This has been fixed by removing EmuVariableUefi-64.efi . I could not find any workaround.

      Hello, I'm new to the site (and Hackintosh), having troubles already, first I will list my hardware:
       
      CPU: FX 8350
      Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5
      GPU: Gigabyte GTX 760
      RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB
      SSD: Samsung 850 EVO
      USB: (Installer) Kingston Data Traveler 100 G3 (USB 3.0 plugged into an USB 2.0 port)
       
      I follow the instructions from another forum (Can I post links?).
      Is a vanilla installation, I prepare the USB with a friends mac pro using clover.
      I can boot to Clover, the problem comes when i try to install Yosemite, i keep getting the next:

      I am having a problem with my build - EX58-UD5 - Intel i7 920 - 12 Gb RAM - recently replaced video card is EVGA Geforce GTX-760 2 GB (formerly EVGA 8900 GTX+ 512)
       
      I had loaded Mavericks and Mountain Lion previous to the new card installation and the video was very choppy as the video card couldn't keep up with the video delivery.
       
      I installed the new card and while the video is now working (almost) fine , When I do a system hardware overview it sees the GTX 760 as 0 GB video ram. The symptom is the anytime you load a web page, the URL bar constantly updates but the video is no longer choppy. 
       
      Question = do I need to load the CUDA files from the Invidia web page to show the 2GB video RAM?

      Hello to all,
       
      First off I would like to say that I did away with Clover, didn't like it too much in 10.9 and didn't want to use it here either. Chameleon is just as good if not better...People have their opinions. 
       

       
      Audio: ALC892
      Ethernet: Realtek 8111
      Wi-Fi: Native Macbook Card on PCI conversion.
       
      Yosemite was not that hard to install on my system as Mavericks was a breeze. I used a 16 GB flash drive created from the mac store app on my 10.9 installation. 
       
      I wanted to install Windows 8 at the same time on my SSD so I backed up desktop/downloads/documents/applications. If you have time machine I wouldn't worry too much about this.
       
      Installer USB in 3.0 port did not work until I installed the kext (post-install).
       
      I had to change my SMBIOS.plist in the /Extra folder on the USB to a iMac 14,2.
       
      Boot Flags to reach the installer:
       
      (Thanks to all the forums I tried everything and only this worked)
       
      -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 kext-dev-mode=1 PCIRootUID=1 -xcpm
       
      Also worked: nv_disable=1
       
      I did get "still waiting for root device" a lot, cured it with -f and without npci=0x2000 don't know how but it worked. 
       
      Once installed my business partner erased my flash drive on accident so I had to remove my SSD and hook it up to a macbook to install chameleon onto it. 
       
      Edit* I pulled out one stick of 4 GB today and put an 8 GB stick in giving me 12 GB {RAM}. On boot with my normal boot flags, -v GraphicsEnabler=No -f 
      it kernel panicked right after the sound loaded. Tried some other combinations but would boot without any graphics (monitor flashing no input). Tried -v VBIOS=Yes -f -xcpm and worked like a charm.
       
      Graphics Drivers I'm using for the GTX 760 2GB
      Full QE/CI
      CUDA Driver: 6.5.18
      Web Driver: 343.01
