Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah :thumbsup_anim:  Still using C2D in 2019! ;)

Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave.

 

Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030 ;)

 

Config:

Gigabyte EP43-DS3L

Core2Quad Q9300

6 GB DDR2 RAM

Asus GT1030 2GB

Sandisk SSD 128GB

TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB

Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)

 

SMBIOS: iMac14,1

Clover: 4297  4360

 

A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!

You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.

There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.

For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.

You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.

 

Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.

Hi Macinsane

I have a board GA EP43T-S3L F7, and i am using your dsdt and config files directly.

Running 10.13.6, everything is good except one big problem, the system will be halted or reboot directly sometimes, 

My CPU is Core2 Quad 9500 with 8GB DDR3 Ram ,and Graphic card is GTX750,

I am a newbie in this and dont know what cause this problem, should i edit the dsdt for it or need other kext to put in my clover folder?

It will be so great if you can help me figure this out, thank you very much in advance for your help.

Attached files are the current files and a snapshot of my kext folder

Thank you and best regards

Hi! First of all: You should never use a DSDT from a different board (even the bios version is important). That your board boots with it is pure luck and maybe it is in fact the root of your problems. Second: Why do you have VoodooPS2 installed? Third: There seems to be problems with your config.plist as well. <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> should be <string>0x67</string>. So as a first step, get rid of the dsdt and get the config.plist in order. Can you boot without dsdt? The problem with my board was that a dsdt was mandatory because else mac OS wouldn't recognize the SATA drives. Don't you need the webdrivers for your GTX 750 or do you have one of these rare Kepler-based cards?

Hi Macinsane, thank you very much for your reply. i can boot without the DSDT file but it will reboot immediately after it enter to the desktop screen, i will change the <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> according to your suggestion and deleting the kext of voodoops2, and try it again, my main problem is that i am new to this and dont know how to get a right dsdt if i still need it, is there any guide for this? thank you very much for your time

      Clover r5050 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5050 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5050-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      Hello Friends, how are ya?

      Could you help me with a problem?

      I followed some guides like: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic ... coffeelake -dsdt /

      and the installation of high Sierra 10.13.6 (17G8030) and nvidia webdrivers (correspondent to OS version) went smoothly, the problem starts when I try to boot the GPU.

      Hardware:
      MOBO: Aorus B360M gaming 3 (rev.1)
      CPU: i5 8400
      GPU: GTX 1060 OC Galax redblack

      BIOS:
      Fast boot - disabled
      windows 8/10 features - other os
      lan pxe - disabled
      storage boot option - UEFI
      other pci devices - UEFI
       
      Initial display output - PCie 1 slot
      Intel's Platform Trust Technology (PTT) - disabled
      sata mode selection - AHCI
      XHCI hand off - enabled
      VT-d - disabled
      internal graphics - auto


      The problem is:
      I can log into the system normally without using my nvidia GPU but when I boot the system with the flags for webdrivers to work I fall into the login screen but it keeps flashing, I can see the mouse and I can move it but the screen flashes and the following error appears when the screen goes "black": IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0. I searched for this error on the internet and tried to solve but to no avail so far.

      If someone can help me I would be extremely grateful! thanks in advance!

      Clover file attached.

      My Laptop:
      ASUS ZenBook UX330UAR
      8GB RAM / 256GB SSD
      Intel i5-8250U
      1920 x 1080 (UHD 620)

      After using this guide to setup my laptop as a Hackintosh (macOS 10.14.6), every once in a while it'll result in the screen flickering, and usually the intervals between the flickering get smaller and smaller to the point where sometimes the screen just panics. I tried injecting my EDID and setting my SMBIOS to iMac18,1 but none of those defeated the dreaded flickering. 

      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

      EDIT: I'd also note that this does not happen with Linux nor Windows so it is a macOS issue not a hardware issue.
