Holy {censored}. This is one detailed write up. Great job.

 

Thanks  :) and there is more to come, I'm hoping that the guide will be easy to follow for first time hackintoshers.

I would love to see the old guide from the ton_ma_ forums.  I can't believe they removed it!  I need all that data in there; the mod's recent post isn't the same information... :(

it's a bible! Nice Work!

 

Thanks MaLd0n.  I see you have been very busy on the forums posting great content and helping, excellent!

 

Stunning Work!

 

Cheers, I hope its helps.

Hi bluesceens, sorry but I removed the guide from their site. I won't detail reasons why, but apologise for any inconvenience caused. I left a guide in pdf form for followers to download, I thinks it's since been removed.

 

Amazing write-up, indeed

What happened to your post/thread on TM86? Was looking for it for guidance..

- or is this guide complete/the same?

 

Thanks, this guide will be very similar but more in depth.

Cool, Glasgood,

 

Can I somehow get that PDF - or will this new guide on InsanelyMac also come as a PDF?  :angel:

 

Hi, it's not a perfectly formatted PDF as I saved the webpage using Safari as a pdf.  When this guide is finished use Safari to export the web page as a pdf.

I'd like to get the old PDF too - great info in there I need..

 

I appreciate you asking for the old PDF, but I'm not going to encourage or promote the use of specific TM tools from the old guide.  This guide when complete will have near same / similar content and hopefully provide better insight. The guide at this moment has everything you need for a successful build providing you are using the parts in the list.

Understood; thanks for answering. 

 

Quick question: given the Asus Z370-G Gaming MATX MB has wifi and bluetooth built in (Realtek, if I'm not mistaken) -- is there any way to get that wifi working, or is the reason you and the chef added a card due to the fact that Realtek isn't supported / working in MacOS?  

 

I added a Crystal Studios somesuch cheapie (Amazon $10) USB bluetooth 'card', but I can't consistently get my BT stuff to work.  For example, I have the Logitech K780/M720 pair, which is made to move seamlessly between two computers' bluetooth connections (ie control two machines by flipping to another BT channel) - it works great on a real iMac 2015 and every PC I've tried (including a W10 PC with that same US Crystal Studios USB bit) but when I put it on the Asus, BT is recognized, but the mouse and keyboard do not pair reliably enough for use.  

 

I'd like to get the Realtek (built-in) stuff working, without USB extras required; is that possible?

After a bit of research and googling:

 

1.  The RTL8723BE has no Mac drivers, and the situation isn't likely to change anytime soon.

2.  An option is a Mini-PCIe card - BCM94352HBM.  One would need to buy a PCIe adapter, though, to put into a PC.  The total cost of this is $30 + $20 or so - about $50.  

3.  Seems simplest, given we have a MATX case at our disposal with M2 MB to simply get the M2 version, BCM94352Z, AKA Dell DW1560, and put it in one of the two M2 slots on the motherboard.  The total cost of this is about $30; no card adapter is required, and the antenna from Asus would simply be attached to the M2 card directly.  

Any reason not to pursue this?  If I eventually plan to upgrade to a Samsung 960 1TB drive, I still would have a single M2 slot free; does anyone see any issues with this?  Wireless cabling running through my case, more so than if I plugged something into PCIe, perhaps...

I am using the ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI with Bluetooth 4.0 PCI-Express (PCI-E) BCM943602CS Combo Card in my build, I choose that card so that iMassages, iCloud and Air drop would work. 

Did not know at the time, but I could have used a wifi card from a MacBook Air and placed it in a M.2 adapter, then I could have used the two antennas from the M.2 wifi card that I removed from my Asus board.

The MacBook Air wifi card has two connectors for antenna, if you are looking for a smooth hassle free iCloud, iMessages etc, then I would suggest to get an Apple Wifi card and adapter from ebay.

Fantastic guide, definitely given me the incentive to retire my old GA-Z87X- OC FORCE - this guide will prove invaluable, thank you sir and well done.

My ASUS X Hero has onboard wifi and bluetooth.

Ingot this version of the MB because I figured/was hoping an onboard solution would work better.

Any idea if I can make it work, or if I have to get another, external card(s)?

Thanks! :)

Here's how to tell what you have: 

 

1.  Go to the Asus page for your hardware. 

2.  Find the Support section, Drivers section, and select Windows 10 64 bit. 

3.  Find the driver for Wifi.  Google the driver version. 

4.  The first hit is a Realtek RTL8723BE in Google.  That's what you have.  Nobody can make the Realtek Wifi work in OS X. 

 

So - buy what's been tried in this thread, or the OS X Wifi threads.  The Dell 1830, 1550, 1560 models seem to work.  I'm just debating the best form factor and wifi antenna adapter now.

Hi Bluescreens,

Thanks - however, I dont quite understand what you mean:

Firstly, as far as I can tell, there are several versions of Realtek drivers for my MB - and secondly AFAIK there are plenty of working Realtek drivers/kexts out there (unless Im much mistaken Im using one in my current Hackintosh), so just to clarify:

 

Are you talking about the SPECIFIC drivers not working under OS X (8723BE, 8822BE and others I found), or are you telling me that Realtek wifi in general doesnt work on OS X?

Thanks! :)

Look at the latest wifi driver on the Asus website.  Google that number.  That tells you what hardware you have.  Google that, and you can see nobody can make it work with MacOS.  

 

So we're stuck coming up with another solution.  I'm trying to find something that works reliably, has 3 antenna (1300 mbps max) on the PCIe adapter card side, and has the Bluetooth USB wiring on-board, if that's in fact required.  So many questions.... it's very unclear right now.  :(

OK, so I finally made a decision.  I bought this: 

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Wireless-1830-ABGNAC-WLAN-BT-NGFF-Card-BCM943602BAED-GKCG2-For-XPS-15-9550/282120771022?hash=item41afb555ce:g:XT4AAOSwCfdXpeEg

 

and this:

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Set-BCM94360CD-BCM94331CD-to-PCI-E-1X-Adapter-4-x-Wireless-Antenna-USB-Cable/172990944818?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

 

I'm hoping it will all work - with Handoff, iPhone calling, etc.  The adapter card is PCIe 1x, and it has the cabling required for the Bluetooth linkage to the motherboard's internal USB header.  Hope it works!  I should know in about a month.  :)

OK, I´m very confused - if you are right.

Like I said: There are plenty of builds on the unmentionable hackintosh forum using Realtek wifi, from what I can tell - so I´m not sure why it´s not doable.

Perhaps High Sierra demands a different solution?

 

FYI: I´m running Intel I218V2 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet with IntelMausiEthernet.kext

      To boot from the internal drive, copy Clover EFI folder from  Mojave USB installer into the  Internal EFI drive.
       
      • Using ESP Mounter Pro, mount internal EFI/ESP partition and external USB EFI/ESP
      • Copy contents from USB EFI/ESP partition and paste into internal EFI/ESP
       
       
      Video:
       
       
       
      • 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 
       
       
      Configure Config.plist for iMessages. ( Video below )
       
      • SMBIOS = Mac Mini 8.1
      • Rt Variables —> ROM —> is your MAC address (delete colons from Mac address)
      • MLB field =  Enter serial number generated and append 5 random characters
      • SmUUID = in Terminal run command “uuidgen” and copy it to SmUUID field
      • Board Serial is same as MLB field.
      • Clover Configurator —>  Save 
       
      Video:
       
       
       
      • Mount internal drive EFI/ESP partition
      • Go to folder CLOVER → drivers64UEFI 
      • Delete AptoMemoryFix-64.efi
      • Place both EMUVariableUefi-64.efi and OsxAptoFix2Drvfree2000.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 )
      • It is important to delete EMUVariableUefi-64.efi, this will avoid very intermittent boot errors such as: “Couldn’t allocate runtime area”  post errors.

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.
      Specs:
      CPU: Intel Skylake 6700HQ 2.6GHz
      RAM: 16GB DDR4
      2TB HDD + 128GB SSD
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia GTX960m
      I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
       
      I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist
      config-new.plist
