[SUCCESS][GUIDE] Glasgood's High Sierra CoffeeLake: ASUS STRIX Z370-G - i7-8700 - GTX1080ti - UHD

320 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I’d like to post confirmation that after a BIOS upgrade (which you suggested earlier) my Z370-E successfully booted the installer and I got a functioning OS! It took me a while because I decided to install windows to test the hardware and sort of settled into it for a while. But it works!

Unfortunately, I didn’t expect that onboard WiFi would be completely nonfunctional and I don’t have a good way to get a wired connection in that room. So I know it works (mostly), but I’m waiting on a MacBook Air m.2 WiFi/BT card to actually get the thing going the rest of the way. Your listed card is only available in the UK, looks like, which is a shame. The MBA card is going to take a month to show up.

 

Once I do that I’ll be looking to figure out how to make a DSDT and everything, but until then I partitioned the disk so I can dual boot and dropped my Windows image back on the other half.

 

Thanks for the guide and the help!

I have a few questions:

The AMD card with the usb bootable was recognized, in "about this mac" was written "Readeon Pro 560 4GB". If I start macOS with the ssd the apple loaded but then I can not see anything ... so, with the check on RadeonDeInit the video card returns to work but then on about this mac is written AMD R9 *** 4 GB .... yet it seemed that he had recognized her natively ... why?
 

 

As an Nvidia user this is something that I have not researched. So can't say anything in regards to it. 

 

 

Why the integrated video card does not work with HDMI?
 

 

Integrated video with HDMI should work if you change BIOS settings to Integrated video. As I'm not using Radeon card, you will have to make some changes in config.plist for both Integrated and dedicated.

 

for HDMI sound read guide part Enable Nvidia HDMI Audio. Understand how VoodooHDA is patched with Vendor & Device ID for Nvidia GTX1080ti  and then apply same principle for either Radeon or Intel. 

 

 

 

From the Piker-Alpha test AppleIntelInfo.kext how do I understand that power management is correct?
 

 

See guide, you can also test with >> Intel Power Gadget   and Cinebench . 

 

 

 

 
You told me to delete the patch for usb, did you mean "SSDT-UIAC.aml"?.
 
.anyway among the USB some do not work, on my motherboard Asus Z370-E works the USB 3.1 Gen2 Red and the two USB 3.1 Gen1 Blue, the two 2.0 ports don't work, while on the zalman case only the two USB 3.1 ports work and two USB 2.0 ports don't work, how to fix that ports? and, there is a way to test the actual speed of the USB ports?
I almost forgot..for the serial number, can I copy what I use in my hackintosh ultrabook? (it would be very convenient since some audio plug-in registrations are connected to it)
 
 

 

Don't use SSDT-UIAC of DSDT, they are strictly for Asus Z370-G only, if you are using SSDT-UIAC then that is possibly why your USB 2.0 port is not working. I disabled USB 2.0 port in SSDT-UIAC for the port limit fix, see guide to create your own SSDT-UIAC or use other method listed for USB port fix. I have listed enough details regarding USB port fix, read all the information and info in the links by RehabMan. Those following my exact build specifications and using WIFI/BLUTOOTH card in same PCIE_X1_2 slot can use my SSDT-UIAC and have sorted USB ports fix.  All info is there, creating the USB fix requires port discovery and is time consuming, I simply don't have time to provide support for that. 

 

To test speed of USB ports try >> Blackmagic Disk Speed Test 

 

 

 

I almost forgot..for the serial number, can I copy what I use in my hackintosh ultrabook? (it would be very convenient since some audio plug-in registrations are connected to it)
 

 

The serial number will be associated with SMBIOS, so SMBIOS for your ultrabook will be different from  SMBIOS for iMac 18,3. So don't think it will work .

POST INSTALL EFI folder can be used for Asus Z370-* Strix but is specifically for Z370-G

Ok,

 

using this file and following the guide, using the EFI folder pre install of the first post, I now have a new USB with High Sierra and Ta-DA! The install partition is visible in Clover. BUT:

The install process arrives at the black screen with the white apple and the loading bar and the wheel.

Afterethe first attempt I updated the BIOS to version 0606 then configured the bios again as per instructions in the first post. The install process gets to the apple screen and stops there.

So I loaded Sierra which I was able to install on my SSD and executed High Sierra installer from there: it loads, it reboots the machine, and it stops in the same exact point: apple screen. The same happened a few days ago when I launched the upgrade from App Store.

 

I don't want to give up, but I have no clue of what else I could do.

Great! Thanks so much! :) So, the two boards have different USB setups? Interesting that two similar boards need different patches, but I learn something new every day. Thanks for enlightening me :)

 

Hey mate, did you manage to find the correct layout for audio?

 

EDIT: Got it to work on x299 :)

 

In Clover Kernel and Kexts to Patch, add the following entry in the KextsToPatch tab:
Name:
AppleHDAController
Find:
3d70a1
Replace:
3df0a2

Hi @Glasgood,

 

I read the BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING TIP, I'm posting the results of the verbose boot.

 

I don't understand where the problem is or what I can do to solve, do you? :(

 

I still hope it's all a mistake of mine, so that correcting it can make my computer work. :)

with a run CPU the FRQ is stop to 4.30 and with a open GL 4.38 more or less (I use a coolermaster seidon liquid heatsink)

-My macOS in About This Mac recognized the ram, it says: 16GB 3200MHZ DDR4, do I still have to set the ram in the cloover? Anyway, I noticed that even after the installation the ram must stay on the slots A1 A2 otherwise macOS does not start, but in the manual asus recommend B2 and A2 ...

Hi @glasgood,

 

finally I made it, now I'm writing from my new mackintosh with high Sierra.

 

I was helped to find the solution in the Italian section of the forum.

 

Now everything works, except for some screen glitches and the Magic Mouse that has some sort of lag.

 

I want to thank you for the precious guide and help.

Hi, I'm having difficulties with the EFI profited by Glasgood. I boot up just fine from the USB but when I instal the EFI provided and try and boot from the hard drive I get this the prohibit mac symbol. Circle with slash. I tried looking at the verbose mode but I'm not seeing what's happening.

 

My system..

 

i7-8700

Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming

EVGA GTX 970 SSC

Corsair LPX.. on stick of 16GB

 

I don't have anything else installed. The wifi bluetooth is just whatever is currently shipped on this board.

 

I was wondering if I should delete the SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl and see what happens.. I'll give that shot.

 

Thanks. I have the system booting fine with pastrychefs EFI and it's working quite well. I like the idea of having a legitimate DSDT which is why I choose to follow this method.

 

EDIT: Okay deleting SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl got me booted up. Onward then. Need to figure out my SSDT.

You PM looks good from image, from what I can see, looks like the power is increasing during rendering then decreasing when rendering is done.

Yes, exclude / deactivate USB ports found with port discovery that you don't need.

If RAM is registered in macOS then no need to list in Clover Configurator. 

To view recovery mode, remove Recovery string from Clover Configurator GUI / Hide Volumes.

Ok, great, anyway as I told you now how are the ram are disposed they use only the single channel, it's possible to solve this problem? Asus recommends B2 A2 for the dualchannel

 

 

Ps.I solved with HWMonitor, this is the PM when starting the macOS:post-1899947-0-60719800-1515931001_thumb.png

Hello,

 

I have been following this build since it was first posted on tonymac. I have successfully built my first ever hackintosh following it, without any troubles at all, thanks to your instructions. However, I formatted my SSD today, thinking I made a mistake while I using the hackintosh when my speakers started emitting static noise. I figured out today that it was a ground loop which I fixed by connecting the speakers to a different outlet in the house. I thought that I could just restore from my backup and everything would be OK, but I noticed that Carbon Copy does not clone the EFI partition. This resulted in a pretty chaotic experience for me. I have been trying to get the Hackintosh to work as well as before, but to no avail. I have spent 8 hours today tinkering with it, and I still do not have the same result. To my surprise, when I went back to this post today, I have noticed that you changed the EFI folder almost completely (at least in terms of kexts) and it simply does not work as good as it did for me before.

I need help, and I hope that my requests won't be too demanding or unacceptable in any way.

I humbly request that you re-upload the EFI folder from the BIOS ver430-era, if it is possible. I don't know which one it was exactly, but it was from this forum, not the other one, and I downloaded it around 2-3 weeks ago.

 

If that isn't an option for whatever circumstance, I wanted to at least ask for help with fixing my power management issues. The AppleIntelInfo.kext provided has different output than you have. I used to have the exact same result if I remember correctly with the first hackintosh build I attempted with the older EFI folder. It stops after a few rows at the last part of the output, I will post an image here. I followed every step from the instructions as is.

I also have problems with the DSDT, and I have no idea why it does not work. I suspect the EFI folder has something to do with it because I actually managed to back up the correct DSDT for BIOS ver430, which worked in the last installation. When I use that same DSDT now, the hackintosh refuses to boot up. I tried downloading the one that is in the post currently, that one does not work either, but it is an error of a different caliber.

Regarding the DSDT, your post says that it is meant for BIOS ver606, but in the lower sections it still says ver430, so I don't know what to do with it. I will post the feedback i receive with a -v argument boot if you have the need to see it with both DSDT's. If I need to first try updating my BIOS to the ver606, then I shall do so.

I remember that in the kexts folder, there was a 10.13 folder with another kext in it, which I think made my audio outputs change their names to something like 5+1 orange, green front, and so on. I am not sure however, it might have been the DSDT because I am not experienced with this in general. In the event that you cannot supply the older EFI folder, and that it isn't the DSDT, could you at least supply that file alone? It would mean much to me, as I always have to guess which audio output I have to use.

That is all the trouble I have for now, I thank you in advance for your help, and I thank you for doing all of this. If it were not for this guide, I would have probably never been able to build a hackintosh as a complete newbie in this kind of community. Please let me know if I left something out.

My hardware is the same as yours, except for the following:
 - NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB
 - TP-LINK ARCHER T9E (Wi-Fi)
 - Case
 - Samsug 850 EVO

Hi, 

 

Not been very busy here on the forum for a while "other life commitments"!  I did not expect to get as many reply's for help on this post  :) To be honest, I'm not an expert on this and can't answer every question.  The guide, is me simply sharing the basic Hackintosh knowlage that has allowed me to easily build and maintain a decent Hackintosh computer.  I have attached >>THIS CLOVER EFI Dec 14th - 2017.zip  an older version of Clover EFI folder from Dec 14th 2017, it has old SSDT for power management in the ACPI folder and USB fix.  Remove the USB fix "SSDT-UIAC" if your setup for WIFI card is not the same as mine. 

 

Best! :)

Ok, great, anyway as I told you now how are the ram are disposed they use only the single channel, it's possible to solve this problem? Asus recommends B2 A2 for the dualchannel

 

 

Ps.I solved with HWMonitor, this is the PM when starting the macOS:attachicon.gifHWMonitor.png

 

Use Clover Configurator and setup dual channel memory. After that then add the memory to motherboard.

Hi, 

 

Not been very busy here on the forum for a while "other life commitments"!  I did not expect to get as many reply's for help on this post  :) To be honest, I'm not an expert on this and can't answer every question.  The guide, is me simply sharing the basic Hackintosh knowlage that has allowed me to easily build and maintain a decent Hackintosh computer.  I have attached >>attachicon.gifTHIS CLOVER EFI Dec 14th - 2017.zip  an older version of Clover EFI folder from Dec 14th 2017, it has old SSDT for power management in the ACPI folder and USB fix.  Remove the USB fix "SSDT-UIAC" if your setup for WIFI card is not the same as mine. 

 

Best! :)

Thank you very much for your time and assistance. I have fixed the audio labels by downloading new VoodoHDA, AppleALC, CodecCommander, and Lilu and replacing the old ones. I have no idea what changed, but it seems to work. The only thing remaining are the Power Management issues. That is, if I have any power management issues, since the only difference I see is that the output of the terminal for me is different than it is for you. I will let you know if I manage to get the same result from before. Thank you for the EFI folder, I will try to combine it with what I have from before ASAP.

 

On a side note, what do you personally like more, the older EFI setup, or the new one with BIOS ver606? I am thinking about creating two boot setups with two EFI folders, but I don't know if the BIOS can be downgraded, I only tried updating it to a newer version when I had something below ver430. If I find any more errors or have some improvements, I will post them here. Thank you again, and good luck with whatever you are doing currently.

I'm using EFI folder listed on guide with no problems, though I am not using the DSDT at the moment due to intermittent boot problem / prohibited sign that I was experiencing using the DSDT.

So you simply removed DSDT to solve the prohibited sign problem ?

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host
      Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. 
       
      The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg
       
      @colt2 HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware
      @dsmccombs comment on faking Ivybridge Processor
      @E:V:A http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55572430&postcount=6
      @Tech Reviews video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7X07U63lwg.
      VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX
       
      Requirements
         Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X)    4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X)    Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine    Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34    Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75    16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC  
      Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes.  Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete.
       
       
       
      3.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox
      1.  Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM.
       

       
      2.  Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version.  I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next...
       

       
      3.  Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next.
       

       
      4.  Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button.
       

       
      5.  For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare.  Click next...
       

       
      6.  For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space).
       

       
      7.  On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger.  When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI.
       

       
      8.  Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings....
         a.  On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?)
       

       
         b.  On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2
       

       
         c.  On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB
       

       
         d.  On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". 
       

       
      Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier...
       

       
         e.  Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings.
       
       
      Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac
      1.  From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 
       

       
      2.  Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter>  after each line.  Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...
       
      Eg iMac11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F2238BAE" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 MacBookPro11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "MacBookPro11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-2BD1B31983FE1663" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 Macmini6,2
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "Macmini6,2" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F65AE981FFA204ED" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 3.  Optional- For some host systems eg those with Haswell and newer CPUs, you might have to spoof an older CPU to avoid VirtualBox errors.  You can try from one of the following if this happens:

      To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4.  Close the command prompt window.
       
       
      Installation of El Capitan
      We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine....
       



       
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

       
      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       

       
      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete.  At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive.  The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive.
      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.
       

       
      8.  Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted.  Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). 
       
       
      Customization with VBoxManage
      1.  You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt:
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively.
       
      Update:  For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed...
       
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution)
      eg
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2.  Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen
      VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html.
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above).  Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free .
       

       
      UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51.
      UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365:  For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73.
      UPDATE macOS Mojave 18A391:  For macOS Mojave or High Sierra, use macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 4 of thread.
      UPDATE macOS Catalina Beta DP3_19A501i:  For Catalina, @jpz4085 has made an automated batch file to create a Catalina VM in Windows with iMac 14,2 SMBIOS.  You can still use my macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 5 to make an installer ISO to attach to the VM.
       
       
       
      Good luck and enjoy

      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) .

      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 
       
       
      // 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

      Hello,
       
      I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
       
      For installation I used this Thread.
       
      I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
       
      Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
       
      My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
      Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use  Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
       
      Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
       
      About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
       
      regards
      JackBauer24
