Thanks man, I have a Core2Quad 9650(with SSE4) and a nvidia GT610. This worked like a charm in 10.9 wondering if the nvidia GT610 is ok with 10.13 ?

 

10.13.x yes, 10.14.x no ((restricted with rollback from the HS, currently only until 10.14.3) With Beta's 10.14.4 it does not currently work.)

 

GT710 works OOB with Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave.

Currently no problems with my Optiplex 780 and GT 710 with Mojave 10.14.4 DP2 Beta. Everything works.

Hi everyone,

 

After upgrading yesterday to 10.14.4, my Optiplex 780 reboots when it attempts to wake from sleep? Has anyone else noticed this behavior? Any thoughts on how to address it? My configuration is: Dell Optiplex 780: C2Q Q9400@2,66GHz, 16GB RAM DDR3, Gigsbyte GeForce GT710 2GB, SSD: 10.14.4.

 

Thanks!

For anyone facing the same problem as myself, I managed to resolve it by turning off hibernation (by pmset) and using darkwake=8 at clover boot options. Now my hackintosh wakes up as it should :)

No, nobody has written yet.
In principle as in 10.13!
10.14 needs the telemetry patch and Optiplex780 needs rollback AppleHDA, as already described. HD5450 no longer works with Mojave. You need a GT710, for example, which supports metal graphics. You have to read a lot and find your way to Mojave yourself.
Currently I have no time and no desire for a guide.

 

The old box is still working with 10.14.5 DP2:

On Dell Optiplex 790 to make booting UEFI and to have Clover GUI really good you need this Driver64UEFI CsmVideoDxe-64.efi

The screen is identical as booting ESP legacy

I managed to install Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6 on my Optiplex 780 with a XFX AMD Radeon 7XXX 1GB. I used the AMDRadeonX4000.kext, AMDRadeonX4000GLDriver.bundle, IOAccelerator2D.plugin and IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext drivers from Sierra 10.12.6 and Verde.kext to get QE/CI working. I didn't inject ATI Graphics and I didn't patched the frame buffer or using a patched DSDT for the graphics card. Sometimes I get weird red artifacts on the screen, is there a way to fix them? The artifacts go away if I zoom in, zoom out or scroll.

Hey everyone, I don't know if this thread is dead but I need help with one little thing. I have just installed High Sierra 10.13.0 and used Rico's dsdt and config, now when I boot from Clover it just goes to a black screen while it's loading half way. I saw on here people using a GT1030 which is what I have but I don't know why it doesn't work for me. Cheers guys

Thread is not dead.
GT1030 needs web driver.
Boot with boot flag nv_disable=1 into the system, then install nvidia web driver for 10.13.x !!!

x = (pay attention to the version) !!!

I did, I made sure I downloaded the right version of the Web Drivers according to my build number. I tried lilu and whatevergreen kexts but it hasn't made any difference

Good news, my Optiplex780 is still working with Catalina.
Installation Catalina directly on my Mojave SSD with SMBIOS iMac13,1
After the installation I am back on SMBIOS iMac10,1.
Many new things in Catalina.
iTunes no longer exists. This is just music now.
Own movies now in AppleTV and podcasts now in the podcast app.
Sync iDevices now in the Finder.

With ATI Radeon HD 5450 no way. You need a metal card, example GT710 Kepler works OOB.
TP-Link TL-WN851ND (Atheros needs a rollback in Catalina). Can I explain later, install once!

thankfully that spec list is out of date and I do now have a GT710.  I'll update soon :)

I stumbled across this thread while idly wondering if the old Optiplex 760 in my dedicated MAME cabinet could be upgraded to something more modern (it's been running Snow Leopard for... well, for a quite a while).  Made several variations of the High Sierra, Yosemite and El Cap USB sticks following the guide in the original post and several different DSDTs from the thread, but none of them will boot into the OS X installer.  Going -v gives me nothing, just a long pause before the system restarts and takes me back to the Clover boot screen.  

 

Any suggestions?  With this many variations and no joy at the same error point, I'm reasonably sure I'm missing something obvious.  Not like this is life or death, but it'd be fun to see how the new HLSL vector effects look...

      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 Olarila Mojave 10.14.6 and managed to install 1st gen intel HD graphics but it was bit laggy bcos this gnu doest support metal and its a old machine, so I decided to move to Olarila High Sierra.
      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.

      *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here).
       
      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):

      Ontem fiz uma instalação do Mac Os High Sierra em minha maquina, um I5 4440 + GTX 970, o finalizar a instalação resolvi conectar meu segundo monitor na saida de video da placa mãe (HD Graphics 4600) reiniciei a maquina e ativei a HD Graphics. Os monitores funcionam porem ao usar o Chrome, por exemplo, quando uma lista de sugestão de pesquisa aparece, ela apresenta diversos bugs graficos, chuviscos e artefatos no local onde deveria estar a lista.
      Obs: Ao usar apenas a GTX 970 ou somente a HD Graphics estes problemas não ocorrem.
