MSI X299 SLI Plus and Intel 7820X: installation and post installation steps

200 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I installed it without any problem.

 

The NVIDIA driver still has a lower performance than with iMac18,3 SMBIOS. I lost about 33% in performance. But this was already happening with the previous macOS/NVIDIA version.

 

There is a minor improvement. I had the "freeze" bug with graphics acceleration. For example, the 3D animation here:

http://madebyevan.com/webgl-water/

used to freeze for a moment every few seconds. This happened both in Safaria and Chrome.

 

Now, with the new updated, it runs smoothly on both browsers.

 

You can also test this with the Finder: you open two Finder windows, and try to resize or move the window in the background. Before this update, it would stutter a bit. Now, it runs smoothly.

Did you down the traditional route of App store or the combi downloader? 

 

This pesky Nvidia thing is really annoying. I actually remained on .102 version which is giving me much better scores but somewhat 'outdated' now. I hope with 10.3.4 we'll see a proper Nvidia driver fix.

 

@Slurpi you're still on iMac smbios right, or did you go for iMacPro?

Hi zambostraut.

 

I was already with iMacPro1,1 before the update, so it was just a matter of using the AppStore to update. To move from iMac18,3 tp iMacPro1,1, I had to follow the guid here:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/331658-how-to-build-your-own-imac-pro-successful-buildextended-guide/

Section D, specially section D5.

For lag issue :

You must have VoodooTSCSync.kex and edit "Info.plist" file

Right-click with the mouse on the VoodooTSCSync.kex file and select "Show Packet Contents".
 
 Double-click with the mouse on /contents/ . After a right-click on the "Info.plist" file, select "Open with /Other". Select the TextEdit.app and edit the "Info.plist" file.
 
 Use the "find"-function of TextEdit.app and search for the term "IOCPUNumber"
 
 Note that the adequate IOCPUNumber for your particular Skylake-X processor is the number of its threads -1, by always keeping in mind that the number of it's threads is always 2x the number of it's cores.
 
Thus in case of the 8 core i7-7820X, the IOCPUNumber is 15 (16 threads - 1).
 
<key>IOCPUNumber</key>
<integer>15</integer>
 
Save and exit.
 
After : 

You must put VoodooTSCSync.kex in EFI/Clover/Kext/other

For cosmetic reasons only :wink_anim:
 
1.) Open a terminal and use the following commands:
 
cp /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/English.lproj/AppleSystemInfo.strings ~/Desktop/
sudo mv /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/English.lproj/AppleSystemInfo.strings /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/English.lproj/AppleSystemInfo.strings-Backup
 
2.) Open "AppleSystemInfo.strings" on your Desktop with TextWrangler and change
 
<key>UnknownCPUKind</key>
<string>Unknown</string>

to what ever you want. In your case choose:

 

<key>UnknownCPUKind</key>
<string>Intel® Core™ i7-7820X</string>
 
Save  "AppleSystemInfo.strings"
 
 
3.) Run the following terminal commands:
 
sudo codesign -f -s - ~/Desktop/AppleSystemInfo.strings
sudo cp ~/Desktop/AppleSystemInfo.strings /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/English.lproj/
 
and reboot your system.

I have no idea, just update your BIOS and check Enhanced Intel Speed Step Technology (EIST)

What about VoodooTSCSync.kext ?

i fixed info.plist of voodooTSCsync.kext. My pc no lag more but not full speedstep

I mean for Msi bios is :

 

Advanced -- CPU Configuration:
Intel Hyper Threading = Enabled
(Intel Virtualization Technology = Enabled/Disabled makes no difference) : disable first
CPU C States Support = Enabled
Package C State = C6(non Retention)
CPU C3 State = Enabled
CPU C6 State = Enabled

Hello,

 

I made my hackintosh using your help. Thank you.

Now I have to add some internal hard drives but something strange happend: I can only mount two internal hard drives.

 

I tested all the combinations with four hard drives, four sata cables and four connections but it only mounts two.

What could it be?

 

Cheers.

Txabi

First, make sure that the UEFI sees all the drives. Boot into the UEFI and make a picture of the screen with all the drives detected and send it here. This way, we can see if the connection (AHCI, SATA, IDE) is what should be.

 

If that is ok, open de terminal and do

 

sudo diskutil list

 

(press enter and type in your password) and copy&paste the result here. This also can help to show if the drives are there but not being mounted.

Hello again,

 

Thanks to your help I realized that the M2 Disk uses one of the SATA connections, I assume that the first one.

Now that I don't plug anything on the first sata and I left it free, i can see ALL my internal drives.

 

Thank you.

Txabi.

Hello, I'm here again.

 

Yesterday, something extrange happend to my computer. It got stack opening a PSD file (one i was working with minutes ago). The rainbow circle started spinning and finally my computer freezed.

 

Now, when I restart my computer after selecting the M2 boot disk on Clover, I can only see a black screen and my cursor.

Fortunately I can log using a backup SSD, but I'd like to know how to FIX my M2 Disk.

 

I copied ssd EFi to M2 Efi folder with no result.

Hi.

 

If you can boot using a backup SSD, then try installing Clover again from its latest version. If it still does not work, pehaps the M2 is faulty?

I copied EFI folder from SSD to M2 but nothing. When I boot from SSD I can see the M2 and It looks ok. It just doesn't load user login window.

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?

      Hi team,
       
      I'm looking for the best route to achieve this upgrade, so I have been stuck with HS since Nvidia drivers stopped being supported on newer MacOS releases. Now I'm having an AMD 5700 xt on the way and want to plan the upgrade properly. I have added some information below and questions that might help with your recommendation.
       
      Current GPU 1080 ti with Nvidia webdrivers installed. So should I uninstall the webdriver before adding the new GPU? Clover is being used and EFI attached. Any kext must be removed? or parameters adjusted MacOS HS 10.13.6, should I upgrade before using the new GPU? CPU: 9900K Motherboard:ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) Dual Monitors I have a Time machine backup, Do you recommend a fresh install? and If I did, will I be able to restore my data/apps as-is?  
      Please let yourself free to explore further aspects to considers.

      I installed Olarila Mojave 10.14.6 and managed to install 1st gen intel HD graphics but it was bit laggy bcos this gnu doest support metal and its a old machine, so I decided to move to Olarila High Sierra.
      I installed it with most of things working fine expect some issues, for that I want to make SSDT and DSDT to make it run without glitches.
       
      I am atteching my sendme.zip , can some take a look to my current settings and suggest me some changes

      Hey guys,
       
      I'm trying to install my second Hackintosh system now for like 2 days (first one was Z370, super easy, super stable) with Vanilla Install, but I just can't get the X299 system working.
      I followed the Vanilla Hackintosh Guide strictly and just changed the SMBIOS to iMacPro1,1 in the config.plist.
       
      After selecting the macOS Installer drive on Clover boot menu I never get to the installation process of Catalina... most of the time I get the progress bar to load up until 100% but it never goes further.
       
      Going into verbose mode I got that message at last: IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 error.
       
      I tried also using the same EFI with a Mojave installer which let me actually install it but the installation process was super slow and laggy - I had to cancel it.
       
      It's now my third day trying to get this done and I'm really feeling frustrated about it as I've been doing nothing else than trying out various solutions I could google.
       
      My kexts:
