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

197 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 I actually remained on .102 version which is giving me much better scores but somewhat 'outdated' now.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 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.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance

      Buongiorno a tutti,
      E la prima volta che scrivo su questo forum, spero di non sbagliare nulla!
      Scrivo qua sperando che qualcuno di voi possa darmi una grossa mano, perchè ho letto di tutto, visto qualsiasi video possibile, ma non riesco proprio ad uscirne fuori.
      Ci avevo già provato 3 anni fa, ma ero riuscito solo su un notebook Sony, sul fisso non ero riuscito a fare nulla. Dicevano che c'erano problemi con i driver della serie Skylake, così ho voluto riprovare ora a distanza di anni.
      Premetto che non sono un informatico, non ho conoscenze particolari. Sono semplicemente un ragazzo che si informa, legge tutorial ed esegue, quindi chissà che la soluzione non sia in realtà una banale sciocchezza.
       
      Dunque, il problema consiste nel fatto che, in circa 8 ore di prove, non sia ancora riuscito ad andare oltre il caricamento del logo, dopo aver selezionato la chiavetta da clover.
      Sto cercando di installare High Sierra, ho provato con una chiavetta con un programma che non ho capito bene perchè, ma non posso scriverlo qui, e una con Clover Configurator (che tra l'altro, nella schermata boot mi da un'interfaccia diversa da quella che ho visto nel tutorial, o anche solo 3 anni prima), ma il problema è sempre lo stesso: dopo circa metà caricamento, o mi esce il simbolo di divieto, o si riavvia il computer, riportandomi nel boot di clover.
      Ho provato un po' di flags, come -v, -x, -s, -f, nv_disable=1 (tra l'altro, per evitare problemi al principio, ho impostato la scheda video di intel come primaria), cpus=1, dart=0, Slide=0, insomma, qualsiasi cosa leggessi in giro che avesse portato esiti positivi, la provavo
      Ho provato su porte sub 3.0, 2.0 e le 2.0 dietro al pc.
      Penso sia irrilevante, ma nel caso, sto usando una chiavetta da 32 gb.

      Nella firma dovrebbero esserci tutte le specifiche del mio PC, non so se debba postare altro. Nel caso scusatemi, ditemi pure cosa manca che la aggiorno.
      Spero davvero che qualcuno di voi possa aiutarmi. Ho un MacBook Air (High Sierra l'ho scaricato da qui) e ho scoperto quanto sia più affidabile usare Final Cut rispetto a quel bug chiamato Premiére Pro che ho usato per anni, e vorrei poterlo usare anche sul fisso, senza dover acquistare un iMac. Ho letto in giro che con Mojave non è supportata l'accelerazione grafica, per questo vorrei installare High Sierra.

      Grazie mille a chiunque vorrà aiutarmi!

      I'm in the middle of my first hackintosh (High Sierra) on my ZenBook Pro UX501VW-US71 laptop using the Vanilla Install. I've tried using different config.plst files and I've gotten the furthest with RehabMan's own (linked here). It hangs at error message IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0.   Can anyone help me figure out what changes to make to the config.plst file for my specific laptop (which is where I assume the problem lies)   System Specs: Intel Skylake Core i7­-6700HQ 2.6 GHz Quad­core
