Hey everyone, 

I have a good stable Hackintosh for 1 week now. 

 

Here's my hack:

 

CPU - Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7GHz 6-Core Processor  

CPU Cooler - be quiet! - Dark Rock Pro 3  

Motherboard - Asus ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING  

Memory - G-Skillz 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-2801   

Storage - Samsung 960 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive  

Video Card - Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB STRIX GAMING  

Case - Thermaltake Core X71 Tempered Glass Edition ATX Full Tower Case  

Power Supply - EVGA SuperNOVA P2 850W 80+ Platinum  

Monitor - Dell P2715Q 27.0" + Dell SE2417HG 23.5"

 

What works:

  • Sleep/Wake
  • Bluetooth
  • Audio
  • Ethernet
  • iMessage
  • App Store
  • Itunes Video

What doesn't work or works weirdly:

  • Black display (when connect to GPU display port) when booting. wake up only just before the login.

It was the Dell P2715Q. This monitor have several troubles when it's time to use the display port.

Seems almost a common issue with that monitor though

If you want more detail please visit this post.

 

  • GPU I bit laggy, for exemple when I scroll in photoshop.
  • Ui lag (Chrome and finder)
  • Usb mapping (I'm using a USBinjectALL.kext without Custom Flags uia_exclude) 

Kext:

  • AppleALC
  • CodecCommander
  • FakeSMC_ACPISensors
  • FakeSMC_CPUSensors
  • FakeSMC_LPCSensors
  • FakeSMC
  • IntelGraphicsFixup
  • IntelMausiEthernet
  • Lilu
  • NvidiaGraphicFixup
  • SATA-200-series-unsupported
  • Shiki
  • USBInjectAll
  • XHCI-200-series-injector

I want to know if someone can gives me tips and tricks to get my build work flawlessly.

Thanks guys

For the black display until desktop loads, it sounds like you left the iGPU as primary in the BIOS. Just change that to the PCI-e GPU.

 

10.13 is a bit laggy with the current web drivers I think. You can disable hardware acceleration in Chrome and see if that helps, as well as disable OpenGL acceleration in PS. I think some have had success reducing lag by rolling back the nvidia driver to older versions.

 

As for the USB, there are plenty of guides (and it sounds like you are aware of them), so you just have to do it.

Here's my Bios Setting:

  • Primary Display: PCIE
  • IGPU Multi-Monitor: Enable
  • RC6: Enabled
  • DVMT Pre-Allocated: 192M

 

I've try without success: 

  • Primary Display: PCIE
  • IGPU Multi-Monitor: Disable
  • RC6: Disable
  • DVMT Pre-Allocated: 192M

The only work around is to use the both HDMI output for my screens. But my P2715Q with HDMI does 30Hz. If I could make the display port working it will be at 60Hz.

Any idea?

You have two DP ports on your video card. Did you try both to see if that shows the boot screen? You might try Disabling CSM as well, if it is Enabled.

I've try both DP ports, and the screens are Black at booting. I've disable CSM as well. 

 

I've seen in the CSM if it's Enable, something like Boot Pci-e with the option legacy or UEFI do you think it could work or it will do nothing? I'm a bit noob with hackintosh.

I don't think booting with legacy will do anything for you here.

 

Do you see the startup screens if you disable the IGPU completely? If not, then perhaps you should start looking at your monitor settings.

I've finally find that is my brand new Monitor. The P2715Q is a troublemaker with displayport.

 

Here's what I found about that: P2715Q

I've decided to return this Monitor to replace it with LG one.

Thanks for your help, I'll not make this post resolve du to the other little trouble.

Yes, i've installed those two kext.

 

I see the bluetooth in my system preferences, but it seems to be unable to see bluetooth device. The searching wheel is spinning and doesn't find any devices.

Here's another send me file with those 2 kext installed.

 

Thanks a lot for your help it's unvaluable.

      Ciao ragazzi,
      alla fine sono riuscito a risolvere il problema che riscontravo qualche mese fa, dopo l'ottima EFI sistemata da @gengik84 e l'ho risolto rimuovendo dart=0 che creava kernel panic e problemi quando la batteria scendeva sotto ad un livello di batteria basso. Adesso il sistema non crea più problemi di kernel panic, ma volevo chiedervi se allo stato attuale secondo voi c'è qualcos'altro da ottimizzare.
       
      Vi allego la EFI.
       
      Grazie anticipatamente.

      So after a gazillion tries with High Sierra, i gave up and decided to try Mojave. I had nothing to lose, afterall.
       
      I started from scratch. I reformatted my thumb drive. Made it bootable from the Mojave [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Booted with it. Selected my language. It installed a little bit. Rebooted. I Booted from the SSD. Installed a bit more. Rebooted. I Booted from the SSD again and it finished the installation.
       
      I went through the basic setup and got to the desktop. I ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and selected my options and "built" it.
       
      Thinking i was a-ok, i decided to reboot, just to make sure all was well.
       
      After about 1min, i lose display.
       
      I thought i had messed something up in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], so i decided to go back to my mac mini, redo the thumb drive all over again.
       
      I go to boot from the thumb drive and when i get to the language selection screen, i lose all USB usage, so i cant even get in to wipe the SSD and start over. So, Mojave is still on the SSD, but i cant get to it because i lose display.
       
      Im attaching a screenshot of Verbose mode right before i lose display.
       
      I would greatly appreciate any help to get back into it or at least help getting it re-installed!!

      First, my build:
       
      Asus ROG Strix H370-I mobo
      i5 8400 cpu
      32gb ddr 4 2133
      1tb samsung evo 860 ssd
       
      Ive finally gotten to the point where the installation of HS loads to the language selection screen, but then i lose all usage of every USB port.
       
      Im at a loss of what to do from here.
       
      According to others, i have the proper files in the kexts/other folder as well as the drivers64UEFI folder.
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions as to what i can do? Im getting kinda desperate as ive been at it for a week now and this is as far as ive gotten.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance
