I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation:
- MSI B350 PC Mate
- Ryzen 5 - 2600
- Radeon Pro 580 GPU
- 4 x 8GB DDR4
(Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5)
Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
So can someone help...
I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...
I get a lot of questions about HOW TO BACKUP A HACKINTOSH. So I decided to create Complete Guide with 5 methods described in detail, how to easily make bootable clones of Hackintosh system disks, or backup your data. Full step by step tutorial is here:
I am new to this hackintosh world (about 1 week now) and I am very impressed with the sort of results it has yielded in my workflow. I use my laptop for guitar DSP and recording audio and have been able to come up with a good enough mackintosh build for it (using High Sierra 10.13.1 now).
For the past one week I have been trying to get rid of an annoying popup "your computer was. restarted because of an error". If you take a look at the error report you shall notice Darwin 18.0.0 as being mentioned, which I presume is Mojave.
What I had done is install 10.13.1 -> 10.13.3 -> 10.13.5 -> 10.14 Beta, where the 10.14 Beta failed and since then the error started popping up. After that I have reinstalled 10.13.1 multiple times, installed it to a different hard disk, used 'shred' from a linux live session on my laptops HDD and installed and still that error message won't go away.
Everything functions fine, the error message is just annoying. If someone can help me get rid of it, it would just make the hackontish build cooler.
Reviving my old INSTAHackintosh, it's been a while....
Create User Custom Install iso/dmg with bootloader, apps and user-settings.
Create Live iso/usb.
Tiger-Current ( bit ambitious but hey I like a challenge ).
Because I can!
I'm not too impressed with the way Apple and others handle their installs.
Support for 4 Bootloaders:
Keep you informed as I progress from scratch.
This could take a while, it's NOT my priority.
Will probably release in Os versions, starting at Mojave and working backwards.
