Hi

 

I have a Optiplex 790 working well with GT710 on 10.15 only issues I have at the moment are:

 

AppleACPIPlatformPower Wake reason: RTC (Alarm)

AppleACPIPlatformPower Wake reason: P0P1

Sound, I am using a USB sound card as could not get the AppleAlc with Lilu, am I doing something wrong or should I jus stick with the usb audio as it is working?

The light for the on switch keep showing on and off when the machine is a sleep.

 

Any pointer on how I can try and fix the above please. My clover folder is attached.

 

Thank you

I see no reason why Audio AppleALC not working for you

Thank you Sir, that did the trick on the sound. Any suggestions on waking from sleep when in sleep mode.

Sorry, please can anyone help with my machine waking up. I have noticed that it happens between 10pm to about 2am. I have check the following:

 

1. File sharing is off.

2. Time setting is set to manual

3. Wake on Ethernet is off

4. I have tried steering sleep under Energy Saver to sleep from 9pm.

 

No joy, the log has the following:

Sorry to bump this thread, have tried various things like removing USBInject.kext, checking bios and still getting the wake whilst it a sleep with the same messages.

 

Any suggestions please?

 

Thank you

No man, my machine is always on and I never use sleep.

Sleep options on hackintoshes are always hard to configure.

Thank you, it worked fine on my hp 8200 but on the dell it keeps waking up between 2 and 5 am. Cannot workout what the problem is.

Hello all,

I'm starting my plan for a budget Hackintosh and instead of buying components and building one up, it looks like I can get a used 
Dell OptiPlex 980 Mini Tower | 3.20GHz Core i5 650 | 8gb DDR3 | 250gb for about $120 and a GT 710 for $40. From what I've been reading the last few days this looks like a good starting point as far a hardware compatibility and upgradability is concerned. I just want a final confirmation that this combo will work for a new Catalina install from the experts here. Thanks!

I can confirm, that is a nice rig. I was using it for years since Montain Lion. Great expansibility and compatibility with GT 710.

Yes, this works very well. Only problem I have is it wakes from sleep but apart from that working very well with Catalina.

Hi,

 

I need some help with the rollback procedure. Actually I'm trying to upgrade from El Capitan to High Sierra by a clean setup on a new SSD. 

My computer is a Optiplex 780 with the HD5450 installed which needs the rollback. I've saved the kexts from El Capitan hoping they will work, as I don't have access to a Sierra machine. 

 

Nevertheless my mac doesn't mount the SSD with the High Sierra installation to perform the rollback using the app EasyKextPro. Within diskutil the SSD is visible but I can't access. By the way the SSD is installed within the same computer which should be upgraded by using the old "El Capitan" installation from a different HDD. Unfortunately I don't have a USB/SATA Adapter available. 

 

Thanks for any help.

Hiya, 

I need your help. I'm trying to update my Optiplex 790 from 10.14.6 to 10.15.2 but the installer gets stuck, see screenshot.

I've tried many things like disabling kexts, bootflags ncpi=0x2000/0x3000, PCIRootUID=1 and also applied the SSDT-EC.aml patch - but nothing helped. 

Any ideas would be welcome 

 

Thanks in advance

In that case it should work fine. Just checked my GPU and it is a MSI one too with the 2GB DDR3.

 

I did a clean install and then restored as part of the start up, apart from sleep everything else is working fine. 

 

Do you have the option to do this with a spare drive?

Thanks, I've tried already to create an installation media to a usb flash drive but the same problem occurs: the installer gets stuck at the same position and does not start.

So the problem does not depend on updating the existing OS or performing a fresh install, unfortunately.

 

Could you post your config.plist? I might need some additional settings there...

Use this config, its adapted for Catalina and works for ancient macOS

This is strange the user does not come back after he has had what he asked for :bye:

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone an EFI folder they could share to install Mojave with a GT610 or an HD5450 ? Still on 10.10 here and could do with upgrading..

Thanks, I was looking if someone is running a DELL 780 with GT610 so a ready to go EFI folder would have been easier for me. I think most of the stuff probably is unchanged from 10.13 but I wanted something ready to deploy... if there is anyone running this config.

      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.
