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.

i think no, i think is just a kext inject problem

 

put two kexts in Library/Extensions and run KextUtility one time, reboot

      Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah   Still using C2D in 2019!
      Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave.
       
      Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030
       
      Config:
      Gigabyte EP43-DS3L
      Core2Quad Q9300
      6 GB DDR2 RAM
      Asus GT1030 2GB
      Sandisk SSD 128GB
      TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB
      Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)
       
      SMBIOS: iMac14,1
      Clover: 4297  4360
       
      A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!
      You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.
      There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.
      For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.
      You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.
       
      Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.

      I'm trying to enable UHD 620 graphics on my laptop since it's almost impossible to use Catalina with it disabled (freezing), so after I followed this guide, every time I try to boot into Catalina it does get stuck at the apple logo and progress bar. Heres also the EFI if anyone wants to look at. I'm using this UHD 620 plist to try to get my graphics to work.
       
      ASUS Zenbook UX331FN
      i5-8265U
      Intel UHD Graphics 620
      8GB of SDDR4 Ram

      - Nothing
       
       
      Disclaimer! 
       
      Bootloaders are currently unable to start the installation.
      The solution is to use a virtual machine and use a physical disk (additional, USB or SATA, NVME) as a target in the installation.
      Change the OpenCore compiled from the source code, and add some entries in NVRAM through config.plist.
       
      This is not the best solution. But it is the only way at the moment. There are some ready-made images available out there, but I prefer not to use them and create a clean installation.
       
       
      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - Already working OpenCore with this setup
      - Create bootable ISO file
      - Spare Disk/SSD
      - macOS Big Sur DP1 install app
      - Latest OpenCore + Kexts compiled from sources
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches
       
       
       
      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock and another with overclock [5.0 GHz]
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup



      How create bootable ISO file
       
      Download Big Sur DP1
       
      Run this command on Temrinal:
      sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Resources/seedutil enroll DeveloperSeed Go to System Updater and download the Install macOS Beta app.
       
      Create ISO
       
      Then run on Terminal (One line at a time):
      hdiutil create -size 12G -fs hfs+ -volname install -type SPARSEBUNDLE ~/Desktop/install hdiutil attach ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install --nointeraction hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Beta' |awk '{print $8}'` -force hdiutil makehybrid -o ~/Desktop/install ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle rm -rf ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle
       
      Now you have install.iso on desktop.
       
       
      How create create the virtual machine and install to disk/SSD
       
      Download and install the trial version of the VMware Fusion from their site. I'm used the version 11.5.5.
       
      - Create a custom virtual machine
       

       
      - Operating System: Apple OS X - macOS 10.15
       

       
      - Create a new virtual disk (The size doesn't matter, We'll delete later)
       

       
      - Click in "Customize Settings"
       

       
      - Save the VM on desktop with name: bigsur
       

       
       
      - Insert the spare disk/SSD on PC (reboot if necessary) and identify what /dev/diskX is.
      You can look on Disk Utility.app:

       
      - Create VMDK that point to it:
      sudo diskutil unmountDisk diskX /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/diskX fullDevice ~/Desktop/bigsur.vmwarevm/physical sata - Edit the virtual machine settings created previously
       

       
      - Click in Hard Disk (SATA) and delete it (Remove Hard Disk)
       

       
      - Then add the physical disk
       

       
      - There's a bug in Fusion. To select the physical.vmdk, right click then "Quick Look", then "Share virtual disk with the virtual machine that created it"
       

       
      - Click Apply.
       

       
      - Now mount de install.iso
       


       
      - Start the VM and install as usual until: Disk Utility, format GUID with APFS (VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media), Install macOS, wait few reboots and stop at first boot wizard.
       
      This can take up to 45 minutes. It may seem like it is stopped, but it is not.
       

       
      - Press Command + Q and shutdown (usually WIN + Q)
       

       
      - Close VMware Fusion.
       
       
      Copy OpenCore to EFI
       
      - Mount the EFI with:
      sudo diskutil mount diskXs1  
      - Copy your current working OpenCore EFI to that mounted EFI.
       
      - Download mine attached or Update your OpenCore, Kexts and driver UEFI.
              - You can use the @MaLd0n script attached to compile all (OlarilaOC.command.zip)
              - If using mine add your MLB, ROM, SystemUUID and SystemSerialNumber. (see how to)
       
      - Add following items do config.plist:
       
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> boot-args -> -lilubetaall (append)
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-basesystem + Data + <00>
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-kernel + Data + <00>
      NVRAM -> Delete -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-basesystem
      NVRAM -> Delete -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-kernel
       

       
      Done!
       
      Boot from the new disk/SSD and finish de first boot wizard.
       
       
      And last but not least
       
      I would like to thank the following community members, by making these dream possible:
