Hi everyone. 

 

Has anybody tested out 10.14.1 update? Is the telemetry patch still working? Also, I have read reports that the USB patch + USBInjectAll.kext method doesn't work anymore unless one uses a custom SSDT. I guess we should be covered, right?

Hey everyone,

 

I've been attempting to start a hackintosh for the last few days with no success unfortunately and I was wondering if I'm doing anything incorrectly.

 

My current configuration is:

Dell Optiplex 755

Samsung SSD 850 EVO on SATA 2

8GB (4x2GB) Crucial RAM

Intel Q9400

DVD Drive on SATA 0

Had a Radeon 3450 but I ripped it out bc it didn't have vga/HDMI so I'm running on VGA from main chipset.

 

I've followed the instructions of creating a.fresh install media, installing clover with the settings specificied, installing DSDT/config files provided in these threads, but I keep ending up at a kernel panic and the installation never seems to boot. 

 

I've attempted to record it as my monitor can't capture the entire report, but the one time I did capture it, it seemed that there was some error with AppleAHCI extension and I wasn't able to find much help regarding that. 

 

Thanks for all your time in advances!

from what I read, no vga with hackintosh. So you nead a graphic card for example hd5450 or nvidia gt 710. The second card is better as it is compatible with high sierra.

here too, 10.14.2 DP1 works

 

@rachad

gt710 is better, OOB works with Sierra, HS and Mojave
HD5450 works only up to Sierra (and HS with rollback), Mojave without graphics acceleration

So far, I did not succeed with the rollback of hd5440. I followed carefully the howto but no way.

Anyway I am very happy with sierra. thanks for the tutorial.

Thanks for your responses! If I were to purchase this, would this work without any additional kexts aside from injecting Nvidia in the config.plist?

Yes, but without inject nvidia.
Everything is empty in the CloverConfigurator / graphics.
GT710 works OOB.
I have the MSI GT710 2GB passive version without fan.

(Remove graphics entry from the HD5450 in the DSDT)

i have optiplex 990 SFF with i5 -2400 and Nvidia Zotac GT710 2 gb

How can i install newly high sierra or mojave on this pc? I've tried with tutorial on first page but no luck.
Always had black screen after loading FakeSMC.kext

I'm using clover 2.4k r4701 Rehabman version

Is there any DSDT that should be used to make installation run?

Thanks.

is it somehow possible to control the speed of the cpu and chassis fans? They are very loud when macos is booted even though cpu temp is about 30°C

as i said the problem isnt the temperature as i upgraded my heatsink and would actually be enough to keep the cpu cool, but the fan noise. Its very loud and i cant focus on revising for exams etc. Currently i didnt even plug in the 4-pin connector bc the cpu still stays at 40° but when i boot up windows to play gta eg the fan is necessary.

Which fan is making the noice? What bios are you using?

 

It is not possible to manually control the fan speed, but I would expect you just have a noisy fan.

 

I have an i7-Core CPU. HW Monitor shows that it runs at about 35* C. I don't hear the fan running. Not unless I put my ear next to the back of the case.

 

I am using the stock fans. No issues. I use the computer several hrs a day for work, and a few hrs after work. I have had this computer for 3 years. No issues with CPU over-heating or fan noise.

i use the 120mm fan from my old dell 780 with the cooler master hyper 212x heatsink bc dell uses a different pin layout than the stock coolermaster fan. Maybe thats the reason for my issue.

 

btw is it already possible to install mojave on the dell 790?

Yes, it is. The procedure is more or less the same as installing High Sierra.

I had to change video cards from the HD5450 to a Gigabyte Geoforce 710. 

 

G710 works OOB

After following a few other guides from TonyMac and Hackintosher (with some success but black screen issues). I was able to get this working fine on an Optiplex 780 just by downloading the associated files and following the instructions. I updated the firmware to allow the max 16GB RAM. My graphics card is an Nvidia Quad 420 and I didn't need to use web drivers or anything. On clover boot all i needed to do was inject nvidia and it recognized my card and everything just worked. Four beautiful screens and no lagging at all. Thanks so much for posting this, it sure saved me a ton of time! I do have one issue though i'm not quite sure how to address. The startup volume I'm using involves two SSD drives in a RAID 0 (which boots extremely fast of course). I created this using the RAID Utility before installing High Sierra on it. The only problem is i'm not sure how to move my USB boot flash EFI partition to the raided SSD EFI partition because it still sees a separate EFI partition for each SSD and not one striped together, why? I tried copying the EFI over to both SSD EFI partitions and installed clover to the High Sierra startup drive the same as I did for the USB installer but on boot without the USB flash there is no recognized startup disk... it so I'm stuck still having to boot off of the USB flash drive for now until I figure this out or someone points me in the right direction. What can I do to get that raided EFI working? Has anyone done what I'm doing? What I was thinking is that maybe I need to mount both EFI partitions and run the RAID Utility again and see if it can turns it into a single stripped partition and try to copy the EFI over after that. If anyone has a better idea let me know. Thanks in advance, you all rock! :)

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?

      Hi team,
       
      I'm looking for the best route to achieve this upgrade, so I have been stuck with HS since Nvidia drivers stopped being supported on newer MacOS releases. Now I'm having an AMD 5700 xt on the way and want to plan the upgrade properly. I have added some information below and questions that might help with your recommendation.
       
      Current GPU 1080 ti with Nvidia webdrivers installed. So should I uninstall the webdriver before adding the new GPU? Clover is being used and EFI attached. Any kext must be removed? or parameters adjusted MacOS HS 10.13.6, should I upgrade before using the new GPU? CPU: 9900K Motherboard:ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) Dual Monitors I have a Time machine backup, Do you recommend a fresh install? and If I did, will I be able to restore my data/apps as-is?  
      Please let yourself free to explore further aspects to considers.

      I installed it with most of things working fine expect some issues, for that I want to make SSDT and DSDT to make it run without glitches.
       
      I am atteching my sendme.zip , can some take a look to my current settings and suggest me some changes

      Hi!

      Could anyone help me installing High Sierra on this system?
      I succesfully installed Sierra before on this system with help of Jake Lo (thanks!!), I just wondering if could High sierra possible to installed on this system?
      Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot.
      UEFI enabled, and for skylake I used IntelGraphicsDVMTfixup and IntelGraphicsFixup kexts. My bios is very limited and does not have any option to change dvmt prealloc or anything else.
      Everything works fine on Sierra.

      I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide:
       
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive):
      1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 
      2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,
      3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
      1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.
      2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.
      3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image.
      4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.
      5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT!
      6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above.
      7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found)
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
