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

      Prepare USB Installer for Mojave ( Video below )
       
      • Insert USB drive
      • Launch /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
      • Disk Utility → View → Show All Devices
      • On Left-hand panel → External →(Identify your USB device in left hand panel)
      • Click and highlight your USB device in the left-hand panel.
      • Click erase button.
      • Name: USB
      • Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled )
      • Scheme: GUID Partition Map
      • Click Erase button.
       
      • Place the downloaded MacOS Mojave app into Applications folder.

      PART 5 – CUSTOMIZE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER FOR AORUS Z390 PRO
       
      Replace Clover EFI folder with PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  OR  if NO graphics card installed in PCIe slot, then use PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - Intel UHD630.zip( Video below ) 
       
      • Install ESP Mounter Pro v1.9
      • Using ESP Mounter Pro, Mount ESP on disk2s1 ( Your disk name may be different )
       

       

       
       
       
      • Open mounted EFI partition found on desktop
      • Copy all the contents from Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder
      • Replace USB EFI folder with all the contents inside the Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder.
       
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 6 – INSTALL MAC OS MOJAVE ON INTERNAL DRIVE
       
      INSTALL NOTE
       
      ENSURE BIOS: Above 4G Decoding is set to Disabled 
      if Above 4G decoding is set to enabled then macOS Mojave install will freeze at 2 mins remaining and will not shut down properly!!!!
       
      Please be patient during install, so when install gets to 2 or 3 mins remaining then it may take extra time. Be ready to boot from UEFI USB installer by pressing F12 when install initiates restarts. 

      • 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 
       
       
      Configure Config.plist for iMessages. ( Video below )

      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.

      OK, I've searching for days trying to gather up the tools to make my current install work correctly. I'm well on my way. But all the links to the things I currently must have were apparently nuked "during a forum upgrade". :(
      As far as EFI Studio goes; I can find many links to it. But for Insanelymac, they're broken (due to the upgrade), or for the Netkas site, they're links to either Rapidshare, or Mediafire that also no linger exist. I see many users here indicating that they used it to tweak their DSDT. But the web (google/duckduckgo), Instanelymac, and Netkas seem to have no idea where it's gone.
      Could some kind soul please share a copy, or a link? I'm a loooong time hacker, and would love to bring it back to life. In fact, I'd love to improve it -- or at least bring it up to current times. If only I knew where it was.
      Thank you for all your time, and consideration.

      This was spurred on from a discussion in the Clover General thread. Where there was a debate on bcdedit being able create/read/edit (U)EFI Boot entries. I didn't think it appropriate to post all this information there and somebody may want to make use of this and its likely to get lost in that massive thread.
       
      Out of curiosity I decided to see if I could create an EFI entry using bcdedit. What can I say I like a challenge.  Whilst is not a documented method by Microsoft, as it turns out in a round about way it IS possible to create an EFI entry using bcdedit and these are the steps I went through to add UEFI Shell located on a USB stick to the EFI entries. 
       
      Third party software is available that can create and edit UEFI entries from Windows with better support and more features. I'm just making this information available in case those options are unavailable. 
       
      DISCLAIMER - This is not a supported method. Use at your own risk. I recommend backing up your BCD/Firmware variables/settings beforehand.
       
      1) Copy {bootmgr} entry.
      C:\Windows\System32>bcdedit /copy {bootmgr} /d "UEFI Shell" The entry was successfully copied to {34e8383c-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5}. 2) Edit the new entry using the new GUID bcdedit generated in the copy step.
        a) Set the device and path for UEFI shell on my USB stick.
      bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} device partition=G: bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} path \EFI\SHELL\SHELLX64.efi   b) Clean up some of the stuff that was copied from {bootmgr} (optional as far as I can tell, just makes things tidier in bcdedit)
      3) Put the new EFI entry first in boot order. (optional)
       
      After completing the steps above, here is what "bcdedit /enum firmware" shows:
       
      I shutdown my computer and when I turned my computer back on it booted up into UEFI Shell. After exiting the shell my PC went on to boot Windows.
      Here is the resulting dump using "bcfg boot dump -v" from that shell:
       
      You may notice that the shell shows as "Windows Boot Manager" in the bcdedit output. This I believe is because of the "WINDOWS" at the beginning of the option data that bcdedit added to the EFI Boot entry. I also believe this why bcdedit shows my Windows 8 installation as "Firmware Application" because it has no option data. I don't know how to remove this data using bcdedit nor do I know how the option data, that bcdedit adds, will affect other EFI applications.

      There might be a way to create the EFI entry without copying the Windows entry but if there is I'm unable to find any documentation on how one would do so. If you use the create command then it just puts it in the BCD and I'm unaware of a way to tell it to create it in EFI instead, other than by doing the above.

      Hey!
      As I have 3 Monitors connected, my RX 570 gets arround 50°C while ideling/ web browsing etc. The problem is, that this temp is apparently just the threshold, when the fans start to spin. So the fans start spinning for a minute then they stop for a while again... This is very annoying for me as the rest of my hackintosh is nearly quiet (SSD, 120mm low RPM cpu fan, nearly silent PSU,...), especially when Im using the pc to revise for school. Does somebody know wether its possible to "change" the threshold till the fans start spinning? Like it would probably not be a problem for the gpu at all, if the temp rises to 55°C but therefore be soundless....
