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.

Is there a way to upgrade the Optiplex 780 with E8400 CPU and GT710 from High Sierra to Mojave directly?

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!

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...

      I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.

      I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?

      I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.

      Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it)
      Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version?
      If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases
      Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?

      Will it be better to use OpenCore?

      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?
