I'm having some issues getting my hackintosh to work 100%. It's at 99%, and the only problem that I have is with shutdown/restart. Whenever I try to shutdown or restart my computer, it will go to the spinner screen, and in the case of a shutdown, the spinner will just be stuck and the computer will not shutdown, while in the case of a restart the spinner will be just a sad line of 2 or 4 white pixels in the bottom half of the screen, with the computer also failing to do anything else, forcing me to either shut down the PSU using it's on/off switch or by pressing the case's restart button. I may also add that I, before buying a RX 570, had a working setup with the UHD 630, it would shutdown/restart without a problem (if the primary video output port in the bios was set to PCI01). I have also made an USB SSDT patch for the 15-port limit, but that has not helped. Anyways, here's my setup:
MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G84)
SMBIOS iMac19,2 (if that matters)
UHD 630 (Device ID 0x3E98, enabled in bios)
Gigabyte RX 570
No extra PCI cards
Also, my config.plist, my USB SSDT patch, and a screenshot of my kexts and drivers folders are attached.
I have successfully gotten my Hackintosh working 99 percent. The remaining issue that I am running into is that my system will randomly kernel panic upon a user issued shutdown or reboot WHEN I have either a usb sound card or usb headset plugged into any of my USB ports (both 2.0 and 3.0). If I remove the headset, it will power down with no issues. Does anyone have any suggestions?
My system is as follows: MacOS 10.14 Mojave Gigabyte H370 HD3 8400 i5 Coffee Lake Radeon RX 580 sound card
I have the internal audio disabled. I have also attached my config.plist file.
I've the following pieces of hardware:
- i7 6700K
- GTX 1080
- Asus Z170 Deluxe
- NVME hard drives
Yesterday I've successfully completed a High Sierra installation (I can't migrate to Mojave due to missing NVIDIA web drivers) but the system (even though it works correctly) seems to show a kernel panic at every shutdown/reboot.
Please find the RunMe.app report attached.
A couple of notes:
- I've installed the audio kexts through the acidanthera AppleALC procedure
- I've generated the SSDT with pikessdt script
- Nvidia web drivers have been installed with the vulgo/webdriver.sh script that requires the WhateverGreen and the ngfxcompat=1 boot argument
- AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext have been used to unlock the full potential of the integrated Wi-Fi card
- I've tried to clean nvram and motherboard CMOS with no avail
- I've tried to update Clover to the latest version but it always results in an unbootable system
It's a pity because everything seems to work correctly (USB ports, graphics, Wifi card, Continuity and so on. I haven't tried sleep but I don't use it anyway ) but this crash is fairly annoying.
I apologize in advance if I didn't post in the right category and if my title and description aren't specific enough :c
My config in a nutshell:
CPU: i7 5820k
GPU: MSI GTX 1060 3GB
RAM: 16 GB
MOBO: MSI X99 SLI PLUS
I attached RunMe output with all the details of my built.
I have my Hackintosh for about half a year. That time I managed to make it works and fix major issues, but some of them left unresolved since then and I ignored them until now.
I use my Hackintosh for Adobe projects (PR, AE, PS, IL, AU and a lot more) - most of them connected with video editing of course browsing with Chrome and other small tasks.
Random restarts - this is the biggest one. I'm starting to work on bigger and bigger projects and at this time I think I can't allow this to happen that often. In the past, they happened like once a day or a couple of times a week. However, now it's just frustrating when it happens even 5 or more times a day. I've tried to observe and find out what can be the cause but I haven't managed to find any connections. I thought it happens when Premiere or another app is using GPU, but I haven't seen increased usage when it restarts. I think that it can be connected with GPU, memory or PSU or... meh, anything else. I don't have resources to check if it'll work with other components. There should be some fix for this. I will really appreciate any help with this :c
Restart instead of shutdown & sleep doesn't work. I've tried to look through some Google results for this and tried many solutions (as you can see in attached Clover folder), but I think the right one for many of these issues is to make my own DSDT.
Glitches, freezes and other things while encoding a video. It happens very often when I try to do this. Maybe it is an issue with GPU or (hopefully) only with GPU drivers which can be fixed with some patch.
Today my headphones stopped working. I have a multi-output device configured in the Audio MIDI Setup app which includes my headphones (HyperX Cloud via USB) and Soundflowerbed virtual audio device for capturing system audio. Today while I was trying (like 15 times) to encode a video in Media Encoder in the background and watch video on YouTube I stopped hearing anything from my system. Of course, it restarted a couple of times as always, but even this didn't solve this. If I plug them directly with mini jack (not via USB Soundcard which was in the box and which I always used) in the front IO or the back I only hear some loud noise
It takes EX-Fat formatted volumes a few minutes to mount after each restart. I found a workaround to format it with NTFS since I have Tuxera installed and I will reformat these volumes when I will find time for this, but maybe there is some fix for this.
GPU is a little bit hot. HW Monitor shows it is only 45-55 degrees, but for my hand is a little bit hot, idk.
Also related to GPU - glitch after POST but before entering Clover boot menu. It is a black screen with little white squared glitches for a few seconds. Maybe it indicates the GPU drivers are loading, but maybe it shouldn't be like this.
And if I can ask about that - I can't make all applications hide on startup. I, obviously, have "Hide" checkbox checked on every login item in settings, but it doesn't work, none of the apps is hidden in the dock. Is there a way to fix this?
Also a small but annoying problem - I can't turn off permanently Mojave update notification (since I tried to install it, and I had to reverse to High Sierra because I had a black screen and I didn't have time for repairing all of them.
Tags are not working in Finder - every time I tag a file or folder and make a change in it (for example save a text file) the tag disappears.
So, with knowing all of that, is there a way to make a proper DSDT file for my Hackintosh? I tried to look through some guides on how to make it but I think I reached my abilities to understand how Mac OS works and what all of these things are, so I'm asking you guys politely, would someone like to help me? At least with these random restarts? :/
I really begin to think that I'm a newbie in configuring all of that Clover things - even after what I managed to do with my PC. Help me, pleease... :c
If you have any questions post it below, I will really appreciate any help <3
