[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 ?

      Hello all,
      I have a working hackintosh....ok.....but it takes a lot to boot and according to the boot.log there are a few problems.
      One of them is a black screen that stays on for a long time.
      I would like to ask anyone in this community some help to fine tune my machine.
      Boot.log and config.plist attached


      Any help would be appreciated.
      bootlog.txt
      config.plist

      hi folks! i'm just checking for opinions here on a Clover based install of High Sierra. currently i can't boot directly from the internal drive on my hackbook, an ASUS ROG GL502-VS laptop (with the replaced WiFi card), though i can boot from the USB bootloader/installer

      i installed 10.13.6 fine using a prepared vanilla installer on HFS+ (not APFS), but my configuration is somewhat unusual. i have two drives. the first SSD has the Windows system, the second has two partitions with the 2nd partition holding the macOS system. when i ran Clover installer i could not use the UEFI option to copy to the EFI partition because it couldn't find one on that drive. so it installed the EFI folder on the root of the macOS partition instead.
       
      however, after a bit of tinkering around, i found out that there is an existing EFI partition on the primary drive called SYSTEM. it has a EFI folder and underneath that is a Windows folder, a Boot folder, and one called APPLE. i can mount this partition with Clover Configurator and copy files to it, but i don't know if this is a good or risky solution. i was thinking i would manually copy the CLOVER folder and the uefi64.boot file to this partition , making sure not to overwrite anything existing. using the UEFI setup, i can create a boot path from the SYSTEM partition to the Clover boot file, but i'm just curious if this is a useful solution or not, and i don't want to ruin the existing Windows 10 installation for sure. any advice appreciated!

      OK, 4988 released.
      Now, @vector sigma, what have we do to update translations?

      Clover r4989 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_r4989 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4989-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.
