CONSIGLI CONFIGURAZIONE PC - [Daw, Home Studio]

50 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ciao! Sono stato occupato in questa settimana...

ecco qui una mia ipotetica configurazione (con questa ho sforato un po il mio budget iniziale):

  • cpu: Intel - i7 - 7700 k
  • mobo: Asus Prime Z270A
  • dissipatore: Cooler Master Seidon 120V V3 Plus Sistema di Raffreddamento a Liquido
  • ram: Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16R Vengeance LPX Kit di Memoria per Desktop a Elevate Prestazioni da 16 GB, 2 x 8 GB, DDR4, 3200 MHz, C16, con Supporto XMP 2.0, Rosso
  • gpu: Sapphire Radeon RX 570 Pulse Scheda Grafica da 4 GB, GDDR5, Grigio
  • hd: WD WD1003FZEX Hard Disk Desktop Performance, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 GB/s, 64 MB Cache, 3.5 ", 1 TB, Nero
  • ssd: Samsung MZ-75E500RW SSD 850 EVO, 500 GB, 2,5", SATA III, Nero/Grigio
  • combo: **[NUOVA VERSIONE] abwb Wi-Fi 802.11 ac con Bluetooth 4.0 (PCI-Express PCI-E) bcm943602cs scheda Combo per hackintosh (Mac OS X) Aeroporto COMPUTER, supporta hands-off

Chiaramente ho un paio di domande..

-quel dissipatore va bene?

-Quale masterizzatore cd e dvd mi consigliate?

-Come mai trovo diverse schede amd con brand diversi, ma cambia qualcosa da una all'altra?

-su amazon la differenza di prezzo tra i7-7700k e 7740x e davvero minima, mbah, conviene fare l'upgrade alla 7740x? idem tra la AMD RX 570 e 580

-magari mi potete dare una dritta per calcolare il wattaggio...devo contare la potenza dei componenti uno ad uno? Quale alimentatore mi consigliate?

-Infine, quale case mi consigliate?

 

**come dicevo ora sul laptop con sierra utilizzo una chievatta wifi dell'asus, magari potrei comprare un'altra per il bluetooth e stare apposto così..

-quel dissipatore va bene?

È compatibile con il socket LGA 1151, quindi sì. Leggi le recensioni e ti fai un'idea se è buono.

 

-Quale masterizzatore cd e dvd mi consigliate?

 

Qualsiasi masterizzatore SATA dovrebbe essere compatibile.

 

-Come mai trovo diverse schede amd con brand diversi, ma cambia qualcosa da una all'altra?

 

Ogni produttore modifica l'impianto di raffreddamento o le porte (il chip resta lo stesso). Cambiano le frequenze e le connessioni sul retro.

 

-su amazon la differenza di prezzo tra i7-7700k e 7740x e davvero minima, mbah, conviene fare l'upgrade alla 7740x?

 

Il 7740X è su socket LGA2066, quindi richiede schede madri diverse (X299, che generalmente costano di più).

 

idem tra la AMD RX 570 e 580

Se sei sopra al budget, prendi la 570. Per vedere le differenze, guarda i benchmark della 570 4GB e confrontali con quelli della 580 4GB.

 

-magari mi potete dare una dritta per calcolare il wattaggio...devo contare la potenza dei componenti uno ad uno? Quale alimentatore mi consigliate?

-Infine, quale case mi consigliate?

A te la scelta. Per l'alimentatore, la potenza più importante è quella sui 12 Volt. Per iniziare, guarda in giro se qualcuno ha una configurazione simile alla tua. Ci sono anche siti che ti fanno una stima di quanto andresti a consumare. L'unico consiglio importante è di non risparmiare sull'alimentatore, quindi stai largo con la potenza (anche in previsione di upgrade futuri) ed evita marche dubbie.

 

Per il wifi, se hai già la usb puoi provare con quella. Se dovesse darti problemi con lo sleep o di segnale, prendi pure quella Broadcom che ti consente di avere tutte le funzionalità dei veri mac.

Si di essere compatibile lo è, ma dicevo per la configurazione che voglio fare mi conviene puntare su altro o vado bene con questo?

Si in effetti..ma poi ho ora ho visto che tra i due processori la differenza è minima, mi sa che resto su 7700k

sono quasi arrivato alla fine di questa "fatidica" configurazione, ma la cpu i7 8700K coffe lake è compatibile con hackintosh? e inoltre questa mobo Asus ROG STRIX Z370-I ha già il modulo combo wifi e bluetooh, mmm sarà compatibile? Grazie

Al momento no, ma si riesce lo stesso a installare.

Le uniche schede con BT 4.2 compatibili che conosco sono quelle dei Macbook Pro, che sono saldate e non in vendita "al dettaglio". Quasi sicuramente sarà un WiFi Intel e quindi non compatibile.

Cioè, in che modo? (se conosci qualche guida buona) Vado sicuro prendendo scheda madre z370 e 8700k?

Mai provato. Nella sezione internazionale c'è qualcuno che ci ha provato. Probabilmente basta far credere al sistema che si sta usando un Kaby Lake, ma non so a cosa porta ciò (power management incompleto? problemi con lo stop?).

Va bene, allora a parte il coffe lake....

la configurazione kabylake sarebbe la seguente:

 

CPU:  i7- 7700K

MOBO: ASUS Prime Z270-A

Dissip. : cooler Master Seidon 120mm V3 Plus

RAM: Corsair CMD16GX4M2B3200C16 Dominator Platinum 2x8GB

GPU: Sapphire Nitro RX 580 4GB o 8 GB

HD: Western Digital Black 1TB

SSD: Samsung 960 EVO M.2

Combo Wifi+Bluetooth

Case: Zalman z9 Neo White

Lettore ottico: LG - GH24NSD1 Masterizzatore DVD-RW

 

come al solito ho un paio di dubbi:

-l'SSD M.2 è compatibile al 100% con hackintosh??

-se vado sul sito corsair nella scheda compatibilità del banco ram, non è presente il chipset Z270... possibile che non è compatibile?

-la scelta dell'alimentatore è caduta su uno da 650W Evga Gold... cioè la somma a mano dei vari componenti mi ha dato 436W (alcuni tra i quali sul sito del produttore non mi dava i W perciò ho seguito una linea generale trovata sul web...) ...poi ho usato il calcolatore online outervision che mi ha dato un load wattage di 488W e un reccomended psu wattage di 538W, questo calcolatore è attendibile? prendo quello come riferimento? Che poi stando ai calcoli da me fatti: 100/650*485= 75% di carico...secondo la tabella plus gold, ad un carico del 50% il rapporto d'efficienza è del 92%: 488/0.92= 530 quindi 42W dissipati in calore, mentre gli altri 120W possono saranno dedicati a upgrade e overclock futuri? Quindi è un alimentatore "buono"?

Grazie

M.2 indica la forma dell'SSD: Può essere SATA (AHCI) (compatibile al 100%) o PCIe (NVMe) (su High Sierra dovrebbe essere compatibile, prima serve una patch). Da quanto ho visto qui (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/324306-nvme-native-support-in-1013/), è compatibile.

 

-se vado sul sito corsair nella scheda compatibilità del banco ram, non è presente il chipset Z270... possibile che non è compatibile?

 

È compatibile con i chipset della serie 100, quindi presumo lo sia anche con quelli della serie 200.

Ogni alimentatore manda potenza su tre voltaggi diversi 3.3V, 5V e 12V. La maggior parte delle periferiche prende corrente dalla 12V, quindi controlla che sia ben bilanciato. Secondo me, ti conviene un alimentatore da almeno 700/750 W.

Mi sono sbagliato intendevo l'Nvme...Comunque è molto probabile che prendo l'alimentatore evga g3 750w gold, ma solo una cosa, se il carico di 488w su 750w è 65% e 536w di efficienza di cui 48w consumati in calore, i watt che avanzano se non vengono utilizzati tutti durante overclock consumano lo stesso energia?..giacchè stiamo..nelle caratteristiche del case zalman z9 neo white c'è scritto "Excellent expandability of 6 ODD/HDD/SSD. 160mm tall CPU cooler, dual radiator water cooler installable" e "5 standard fan max installed" quindi mi chiedevo, ma posso installare il coller master seidon 120mm V3?

No, la potenza consumata è data dalla somma delle potenze delle componenti interne + potenza "dissipata" dall'alimentatore (resistenza interna, ecc...). Dovrebbe starci per 6mm.

Alla fine ho optato per:

 

i7-8700K,

Asus Rog Strix z370-E

Coolermaster Seidon 120mm c3 plus

Asus rog rx 560 O4G Gaming

Hd Western Digital Black 1TB

M.2 Nvme Samsung 960 Evo 250GB

Dvd-Rw LG-GH24NSD1

Evga g3 Super Nova 750W 80+ Gold

G-Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZ

Case Zalman Z9 Neo White

 

Sono in attesa che mi arrivino...

nel frattempo è uscita una guida per 8° gen..suppongo che funzioni anche per mio hardware: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/330677-successguide-glasgoods-high-sierra-coffeelake-asus-strix-z370-g-i7-8700-gtx1080ti-uhd/?hl=+8700k

Vi farò sapere...

 

Mentre per il dual boot win10+mac posso seguire sempre questa guida? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/317725-tripledualquad-boot-uefi-custom-entries/

Andarsi a cercare hardware non ancora usato da Apple per me significa andare in cerca di problemi. Viste le minime differenze fra Kaby e Coffee a livello prestazionale scegliere il primo era la soluzione più conservativa.

Poi ti andrà di c..o e ti funzionerà tutto, e te lo auguro di cuore.

Se puoi usare due dischi separati, è meglio. Se proprio ti vuoi male e vuoi installare tutto su un solo disco, quella guida va benissimo. :D

Certo utilizzerò due dischi separati.  ;)

Jolly alla fine ho optato per l'ottava generazione ritenendo che prima o poi ci dovessero essere sviluppi, già leggevo in giro per il web che diversa gente riusciva a gestire bene 8°gen con sierra...a quanto pare manco a volerlo glassgood ha creato una guida con i componenti molto simili ai miei..devo solo provarla, vi aggiornerò su questa "vicenda"!  :D

Questa è la mia configurazione (windows 10 su HD e macOS su Nvme):

  • i7-8700K
  • Asus Rog Strix z370-E
  • Coolermaster Seidon 120mm c3 plus
  • Asus rog rx 560 O4G Gaming
  • Hd Western Digital Black 1TB

  • G-Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZ
  • Zalman Z9 Neo White Case

Ora, dato che avevo già l'utrabook con macOS sierra e con i plugin audio registrati al suo seriale ho pensato di copiare il suo serial number e l'UUID sul smbios del pc assemblato, tranne per l'MLB, ho dovuto generare uno nuovo perchè sull'ultrabook non l'avevo inserito... è "corretta un'azione del genere"? Tra l'altro controllando su: https://everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/e su https://checkcoverage.apple.com/ il primo mi da il risultato e il secondo un errore, quindi da quanto so questo significa che il seriale non è stato utilizzato da nessuno, ma in realtà l'ho utilizzo io da un anno a questa parte..potete darmi una delucidazione?

Non è corretto. Dovresti usare un seriale diverso per ogni hack: generato in modo concorde con l'SMBIOS. Il fatto che checkcoverage ti dia errore, significa che non è registrato, quindi non è utilizzato da veri mac. Per poterlo far comparire su check coverage, dovresti avere qualcuno interno ad Apple.

ok, quindi anche se utilizzo quel seriale da più di un anno, che per generarlo avevo shekerato smbios un pò di volte, non sarà mai univoco perchè magari potrebbe essere ri-generato o mi sbaglio? E mentre sul sito apple mi da l'errore sull'altro come dicevo col seriale che ho inserito (https://everymac.com...ate-mac-lookup/) mi appare questo:

MacBook Air "Core i5" 1.8 13" (Mid-2012) 1.8 GHz Core i5 (I5-3427U) apple-macbook-air-13-2011.jpg Intro. June 11, 2012 Disc. June 10, 2013 etc etc etc etc

tuttavia il macOS è partito lo stesso anche se non è un macbook, ha cosa potrei incorrere se uso questo seriale?

Condizione necessaria affinché macOS parta su hardware non Apple è avere FakeSMC.kext e un SMBIOS supportato dal sistema operativo.

I seriali su checkcoverage appartengono a veri mac o sono stati inseriti da personale Apple (quelli senza data di acquisto). Che lo usi da un giorno o da dieci anni, non cambia. Non comparirà mai lì.

Everymac probabilmente prende solo i quattro caratteri finali del seriale che sono associati al modello del Mac. Per caso il tuo seriale finisce per uno di questi?

DRVC
DRVD
DRVF
DRVG
F2FV
F56F
F56H
F56D
F56J
F57J
F5MW
F67P
F67J
F67H
F67G
F6TN
F760
F90Y

L'importante è che la coppia ROM-MLB sia univoca e che il seriale non sia usato su veri Mac (per questioni "legali"). A parte Apple Care, non conosco altri casi in cui il seriale sia rilevante.

Col simpleMLB.sh ho generato un MLB dal desktop..quindi macOS si avvia con un MLB supportato e non con un seriale supportato a quanto pare...Comunque no non termina con uno di quelli...beh allora lascerò il seriale dell'ultrabook se non c'è un motivo in particolare per cambiarlo, mi conviene tenerlo cosicchè i plugin e i programmi che utilizzo li uso sia sull'ultrabook che sul desktop con lo stesso seriale... :)

Libero di fare quello che vuoi, ma ho detto il contrario...

Genera un SMBIOS adeguato per il fisso. A meno che non sia un ultrabook Ivy Bridge, dovresti usare un altro SMBIOS. Oltretutto due seriali diversi= due prodotti diversi su iCloud per i codici di verifica per l'autenticazione a due fattori e tanti altri vantaggi. E meno rischio di blacklist del tuo Apple ID... visto che Apple conosce ogni pc che accede ai suoi servizi (board-id, seriale, ROM, MLD, indirizzo IP, ID Apple), è meglio evitare il più possibile di accedere con stessi dati da più pc.

      hi folks! i'm just checking for opinions here on a Clover based install of High Sierra. currently i can't boot directly from the internal drive on my hackbook, an ASUS ROG GL502-VS laptop (with the replaced WiFi card), though i can boot from the USB bootloader/installer

      i installed 10.13.6 fine using a prepared vanilla installer on HFS+ (not APFS), but my configuration is somewhat unusual. i have two drives. the first SSD has the Windows system, the second has two partitions with the 2nd partition holding the macOS system. when i ran Clover installer i could not use the UEFI option to copy to the EFI partition because it couldn't find one on that drive. so it installed the EFI folder on the root of the macOS partition instead.
       
      however, after a bit of tinkering around, i found out that there is an existing EFI partition on the primary drive called SYSTEM. it has a EFI folder and underneath that is a Windows folder, a Boot folder, and one called APPLE. i can mount this partition with Clover Configurator and copy files to it, but i don't know if this is a good or risky solution. i was thinking i would manually copy the CLOVER folder and the uefi64.boot file to this partition , making sure not to overwrite anything existing. using the UEFI setup, i can create a boot path from the SYSTEM partition to the Clover boot file, but i'm just curious if this is a useful solution or not, and i don't want to ruin the existing Windows 10 installation for sure. any advice appreciated!

      This tutorial has been updated on GITHUB to 10.14 and 10.15
      the tutorial on insanelymac got too fragmented for a simple forum thread and will not be updated, but still be used for discussion and hints, tips and tricks
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Dell XPS 15 (9550, Version of 2016) Sierra 10.13.1 Tutorial

       

       
       
       
       
       
      Before we start:
      this installation includes real time DSDT/SSDT patching from within clover. This is pretty easy to install. But it is NOT suited for people with no or only few knowledge in Hackintosh Systems. If you only know how to copy commands in your shell and you dont know what they're doing, then stop the tutorial and revert to windows or buy a real mac. Even if you get it running: this system is not failsafe and will be broken multiple times in its usage time, where you have to fix it without a tutorial.
      Optional steps are marked in GREEN, System dependent steps are BLUE

      English is not my mother-tongue and i'm writing this without proof reading, so please forgive my bad spelling
      If you've questions or something doesn't work: first check if you've done all steps of this tutorial! If yes: please read the whole thread (doesn't matter how long it is) before asking to prevent multiple questions. Additionally do a search in google and this forum.


      Credits:
      Many knowledge of "how to hackintosh a dell in the first place" by the tutorial of @Gymnae http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319766-dell-xps-9550-detailled-1011-guide/
      Using many kexts and solutions from @RehabMan

      What's not working:
      Hibernation (works somehow, but high chance to destroy your whole data), Sleep works fine! SD-Card reader Killer 1535 Wifi (rarely used, need replace) nVidia Graphics card (Intel works) FileVault 2 (full HDD encryption) Requirements:
      one working MAC OS X Enviroment 16GB USB Stick (larger is sometimes not bootable and/or requires advanced partitioning) MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1 installation file from the app store (redownload, just in case) Knowledge in PLIST editing USB Harddrive for backup - you'll loose all data on your computer! Step 1: Prepare Installation
      Use the existing Mac to download the Sierra installer from the App Store and create a bootable USB stick with CLOVER. You can do this with the App "Pandora's Box" of insanelymac (use google for download link), which is pretty easy to use.
      Optional: check if your SSD can be switched to 4k sector size. This prevents NVMe corruption. See https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/4k_sector.md
      After you've finished you need to download the Dell XPS 15 specific configurations for clover.
      Link: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/archive/10.13.zip and unzip this file or checkout git directly:
      git clone https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX.git You only need the folder 10.13, you can delete the 10.11. I'll refer to this folder by "git/"
      Now mount the hidden EFI partition of the USB Stick by entering
      diskutil mount EFI Inside the terminal. Mac OS will automaticly mount the EFI partition of the USB stick, but just in case: make sure it really is
      Overwrite everything in the CLOVER folder of the partition EFI with the content of git/10.13/CLOVER.
      If your PC has a Core i5 processor, you'll have to modify your config.plist in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/: search for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000.
      If you could use the 4k sector patch, replace the config.plist with the 4kconfig.plist. 
      If you use a hynix device and you didnt do the 4k sector switch, you'll have to add the following patch to your config.plist
      <key>Comment</key> <string>IONVMeFamily Pike R. Alpha Hynix SSD patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>9sEQD4UcAQAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>IONVMeFamily</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>9sECD4UcAQAA</data> Go into the EFI Configuration (BIOS) of your Dell XPS 15:
       
      Also disable the SD-Card Reader to reduce the power consumption drastically. Insert the stick on the Dell XPS 15 and boot it up holding the F12 key to get in the boot-menu and start by selecting your USB-Stick (if you've done it correctly it's named "Clover: Install macOS Sierra", otherwise it's just the brandname of your USB-Drive). You should get to the MacOS Installation like on a real mac. If you're asked to log-in with your apple-id: select not now! Reason: see Step 5.


      Step 2: Partition and Installation
      INFORMATION: after this step your computer will loose ALL data! So if you haven't created a backup, yet: QUIT NOW!

      Dont install macOS yet. Select the Diskutil and delete the old partitions. Create a new HFS partition and name it "OSX". If you want to multiboot with Windows 10, then you'll have to create a second partition, too (also HFS! Dont use FAT or it will not boot! You have to reformat it when installing Windows). Make sure to select GUID as partition sheme.
      Close the Diskutil and install OSX normally. You'll have to reboot multiple times, make sure to always boot using the attached USB stick. So dont forget to press F12. After the first reboot you should see a new boot option inside clover, which is highlighted by default. Just press enter. If you only see one, then something went wrong.


      Step 3: Make it bootable
      After a few reboots you should be inside your new macOS enviroment. You can always boot into it using the USB stick. Remove the USB drive after successful bootup. Enter
      diskutil mount EFI in your terminal, which should mount the EFI partition of your local installation.

      install git/Additional/Tools/Clover_v2.4k_r4003.pkg. Make sure to select "Install Clover in ESP". Also select to install the RC-Scripts. This should install the Clover Boot System. Now copy everything from git/10.13/CLOVER to EFI/CLOVER like you did before by creating the usb stick. (if you had to modify the config.plist in step 1, do it here, too). Your system should be bootable by itself. Reboot and check if your system can boot by itself.

       
      Step 4: Post Installation
      Because all DSDT/SSDT changes are already in the config.plist, you dont need to recompile your DSDT (albeit i suggest doing it anyway to make your system a lil bit more failsafe, see gymnaes El-Capitan tutorial for more informations). So we can skip this part and go directly to the installation of the required kexts. Open a terminal and goto the GIT folder.
      sudo cp -r ./Post-Install/LE-Kexts/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.bak 2> /dev/null sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.bak 2> /dev/null sudo ./AD-Kexts/VoodooPS2Daemon/_install.command Now you'll have to replace the config.plist. Because you'll install modified kexts you'll HAVE TO replace the config.plist in your installation. Otherwise your PC will not boot anymore.
      diskutil mount EFI replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with git/Post-Install/CLOVER/config.plist. Again: if your PC has a Core i5 processor, search the config.plist for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000.

      OPTIONAL (in case you've audio problems):
      AppleHDA has some problems after Wake-Up. You'll have to plug in a headphone to get your speakers working again. You can use VoodooHDA instead, which breaks the headphone jack most of the time, but makes the rest much more stable.
      sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/CodecCommander.kext sudo rm /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/SSDT-ALC298.aml then remove from your config.plist from the key "KextsToPatch" the elements "AppleHDA#1" to "AppleHDA#7". Install the package: git/Post-Install/AD-Kexts/VoodooHDA-2.8.8.pkg
      i also suggest moving some of the kext from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13 to /Library/Extensions. It's just more stable.
      Finalize the kext-copy by recreating the kernel cache:
      sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache sudo rm -rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sometimes you'll have to redo the last command if your system shows "Lock acquired".
      OSX 10.12.2 removed the posibility to load unsigned code. You can enable this by entering
      sudo spctl --master-disable If you're using the 4K monitor, you'll have to copy the UHD enabling kexts to your clover directory:
      sudo cp ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/UHD-Kexts/* /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/ To enable GPU acceleration: Edit your clover config file again and remove the following block from it:
       
      To prevent getting in hibernation (which can and will corrupt your data), just set the default sleep mode to "suspend to ram" (sleep) instead of "suspend to disk" (hibernation)
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 To get HDMI Audio working:
      Search for your Boarrd-ID in the config.plist and open /S/E/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/contents/plugin/AppleGraphicePolicy.kext/contents/info.plist with a texteditor. Search for your board-id in there and change the value of it from "Config2" to "none"
       
      OPTIONAL (alternative power management):
      the whole power management is done by intels speed step technology (HWP), which is enabled in the clover config. If you want to let OSX manage the power management, you'll have to do these steps:
      sudo cp ./Post-Install/CLOVER/ACPI/optional/SSDT.aml /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ then open the config.plist (/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist) and change <key>HWPEnable</key><true/> to <key>HWPEnable</key><false/>.
       
      Step 5: iServices (AppStore, iMessages etc.)
       
      WARNING! DONT USE YOUR MAIN APPLE ACCOUNT FOR TESTING! It's pretty common that apple BANS your apple-id from iMessage and other services if you've logged in on not well configured hackintoshs!
      If you want to use the iServices, you'll have to do some advanced steps, which are not completly explained in this tutorial. First you need to switch the faked network device already created by step 4 to be on en0. Goto your network settings and remove every network interface.
      sudo rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot, go back in the network configuration and add the network interfaces (LAN) before Wifi.

      You also need to modify your SMBIOS in the config.plist of Clover in your EFI partition with valid informations about your "fake" mac. There are multiple tutorials which explain how to do it like "http://www.fitzweekly.com/2016/02/hackintosh-imessage-tutorial.html".

      It's possible you have to call the apple hotline to get your fake serial whitelisted by telling a good story why apple forgot to add your serial number in their system. (aka: dont do it if you dont own a real mac). I personally suggest using real data from an old (broken) macbook.


      Step 6: Upgrading to macOS 10.13.2 or higher / installing security updates
      Each upgrade will possibly break your system!
      (Update: after the latest updates in this tutorial the system should be update-proof.) 
       
      Step 7: Fixes / Enhancements / Alternative Solutions / Bugs
      See: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/Tutorial_10.13_Step7.md
       
      Afterword and fixes
      as i said before: this is not a tutorial for absolute beginners, albeit it's much easier then most other tutorials, because most is preconfigured in the supplied config.plist. Some Dells have components included, which are not supported by these preconfigured files. Then i can only suggest using Gymnaes tutorial which explains most of the DSDT patching, config.plist editing and kexts used in detail and use the supplied files here as templates.
      Warning: Some people have reported multiple data losses on this machine. I suggest using time-machine whenever possible! If your device is detected as "Model Name: Apple Device", see: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319764-guide-dell-xps-15-9550-sierra-10122-quick-installation/page-13?do=findComment&comment=2362337 If you want to save the settings of the display brightness: downgrade to clover 3899, in the never versions the nvram restore is broken. USBInjectAll is not intended for permanent use. You should check which USB are really required to be injected and modify your DSDT/SSDT. 4K Touchscreen only: Multitouch can be achieved with the driver from touch-base.com, but it's not open source - costs > 100 $ Not a bug: if you REALLY want to use the 4K Display natively and disable the Retina Mode (max 1920x1080), see: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/macbook-pro-retina-display-faq/macbook-pro-retina-display-hack-to-run-native-resolution.html Tutorial Updates
      27. March 2017: UHD Kexts added, replaces perl command 23. March 2017: 4k sector tutorial against NVMe corruption added   7. March 2017: Suggestion to disable the SD Card Reader for reduced power consumption 4. February 2017: Dell SMBIOS Truncation workaround added 23. January 2017: Hynix SSD fix added 31. December 2016: USB-C Hotplug Fix and USB InjectAll Removed 28. December 2016: NVMe SSDT Spoof precreated, FakeID already preset in installation config.plist. VoodooHDA added as alternative to SSDT-ALC298 patch as well as color coding in tutorial 22. December 2016: FakeSMBios added Accessories Appendix:
      The official Dell adaptor DA200 (http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=at&l=de&s=dhs&cs=atdhs1&sku=470-abry) works completly on Sierra 10.2.2. You can use the Network, USB, HDMI and VGA. Everything is Hot-Pluggable a cheap 3rd party noname USB-C -> VGA adaptor didnt work you can charge the Dell with a generic USB-C Power Adaptor, but USB-C has only a maximum power of 100W, so it's either charging OR usage, not both. Dont forget you need a special USB-C cable (Power Delivery 3.0) for charging.

      I've just got my hack. to were I'm happy with it.
      its been a long road. and up to this point was always evolving. and from the software side. id Like to thank EVERYONE that as given there time help and support  in my Hackintosh adventure.
      the hardware side. as at times been a bit of a challenge (learning to bent stainless tubing) I got the powder coating done by a local company
      Please comment. Had to change the tubing around 
                                                                            Best regards

      Hi everyone!
      Long time no see guys!
      As you can see I am not new user of Insanely and do not want to post in incorrect section, but I can not find any similiar topic at all. I,ve searched the forum and the web and I can't find a solution.
      My question is that is there any possibility to install Mavericks 10.9.5 on external drive on the newest Macbook Pro 13 from 2018? I know that the Intel Coffee Lake is new generation of CPU's and there is no drivers in Mavericks system to run this CPU, but I was thinking about it alot and I decided to write here. Because if we can install all the newest OSX, macOS on older machines then maybe we can install older systems on newer builds?
       
      P.S. If I wrote in incorrect topic then please move this thread to the right section, I will be grateful

      PREAMBLE - BEFORE YOU START 
       
      Here detailed, is all the  steps towards building a successful and stable Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh, if you are a first time Hackintosher, this guide will have you quickly up and running with the Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh. To rule out any problems from the go,
      only have the disc that you plan to install macOS Mojave connected to the Aorus Pro, disconnect any other Windows / Linux or data drives, external drives from your Aorus Pro. Windows / Linux and data drives can be connected after successful installation of macOS Mojave
      If you have more than 16 GB of memory, then install macOS Mojave with just 16GB, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1  and DDR4_B1. This build has the Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3
      with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2. 
       
      If using the Corsair H100i v2 AIO cooler with USB cable connected to motherboard header F_USB1, you will need to enable hot-patch ( explained in guide ) in config.plist for working sleep, wake from sleep will only work by pressing Power Button.
      However, If not using the Corsair H100i v2  USB cable, then you have wake from sleep using Keyboard / Mouse or Power Button.
      The Corsair USB cable is only required if using Corsair Link software in Windows for custom Fan or LED settings.
       
      Install macOS Mojave on its own physical drive, so do not try and install macOS Mojave onto a free partition on a disc that contains Windows.
      Remove any Thunderbolt cards, Thunderbolt card can be reinserted after installation.  Double check your BIOS settings are the same as this guide. 
       
       
      AMD Vega card's  will work with this guide, but If you plan to use a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 then please read @AudioGod ==>post  regarding the Sapphire Pulse 56.
       
       
       
      Following are unsupported / problematic
       
      • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave )
       
      • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( firmware problem with macOS )
       
      • XFX Radeon RX 580
       
      • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave
       
      • Fenvi T919 Wireless Card, it seems Bluetooth is not working out of box for some users ( Maybe the USB port attached to Fenvi bluetooth is wrongly configured, or the SSDT-UIAC.aml port connector was not configured as Internal, or maybe some other reason )
         Save yourself a headache --->  RECOMMENDED WIFI CARD WORKING OUT OF BOX (OOB)  is ---> ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI With Bluetooth 4.0 PCI-Express (PCI-E) BCM943602CS 
       
       
       
      Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ?
      A - Possibly may work with other Z390 chipset motherboards. See very bottom of page for PRE & POST - INSTALL AORUS X 390 EFI's ( will require USB SSDT fix  )
       
      Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ?
      A - Yes, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly on BCM943602CS or BCM94331CD WiFi/Bluetooth Combo cards ( more info at bottom of guide) .

      • INSERT USB INSTALLER INTO THE USB 2.0 PORT  
       
       
       Here is a walkthrough of the full process using the macOS Mojave USB Installer on the Aorus Z390 Pro. 
       
       
       
       
      • Power on PC and press F12• Choose bootable USB drive from boot menu.
       
       
       
      • Install macOS Mojave to internal solid state or hard drive.
       
       
       
      When system returns to the Clover boot menu choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      At next restart, press F12 and boot from external UEFI USB device and choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      Proceed with macOS Mojave install
       
       
      macOS Mojave is now installed, but it can only boot at this moment thanks to FakeSMC and Clover on the Mojave USB flash drive installer.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 7 – MAKE AORUS Z390 PRO INTERNAL DRIVE BOOTABLE
       
      Make internal drive bootable ( Video below )
       
      So far, the Aorus Pro can only boot the internal system drive with the aid of the Mojave USB Installer.
      To boot from the internal system drive without the installer: 
       
      Download and install Clover with RC Scripts on target volume.  
      If your Aorus Pro Z390 has AMD RX 580 then copy the EFI folder from inside POST-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.          OR
      If your Aorus Pro Z390 has no graphics card installed in PCIe slot, then copy the EFI folder from inside POST-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - Intel UHD630.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.   
       

       
       
       
      • Remove USB Mojave installer and shut down and restart.
       
      Aorus Hackintosh should now be able to boot to macOS Mojave, Done, well almost ! 
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 8 – ENABLE IMESSAGES & FACETIME 
       
       
      // UPDATE 21st MAY 2019
       
      Possibly Clover Configurator now automatically populates correct values for working iMessages when you select an SMBIOS.  
       

       
      After selecting SMBIOS, example iMac19,1 for Aorus Pro with RX580 ( image above ) then go to Apple and ensure you have the "serial number is not valid " message. Done!
       
      If you still have problems connecting to iMessage, test and ensure that AirDrop is working, then follow instructions inside spoiler. 

       
       
      • Mount internal drive EFI/ESP partition
      • Go to folder CLOVER → drivers64UEFI 
      • Place both EMUVariableUefi-64.efi inside → drivers64UEFI
       
       
      Using Clover Configurator, add the following argument to config.plist using Clover Configurator.
       
      • Slide = 0
       

       
       
      Shutdown and then press power on button on PC.
       
      • You should now be able to Log into iCloud, iMessages and FaceTime
       
       
       
      • NOW delete EMUVariableUefi-64.efi from CLOVER → drivers64UEFI Folder 
      • Shutdown and restart Aorus Pro hackintosh. iMessages etc is now operational without EMUVariableUefi-64.efi ( EMUVariableUefi-64.efi only needed to initialise iMessages )
       
       
      // UPDATE 22nd May 2019 
       
      • It seems that there are no "Couldn't allocate runtime area"  errors when continuing to use EMUVariableUefi-64.efi since updating to macOS Mojave 10.14.5 and using Clover version r4920. 
      • It is important to delete EMUVariableUefi-64.efi, this will avoid very intermittent boot errors such as: “Couldn’t allocate runtime area”  post errors.
       
       
       
       
      PART 9 – ENABLE TRIM for Solid State Flash Drives
       
      Open Terminal and enter the following command:
      sudo trimforce enable
