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

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?

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

Hi

What GPU are you using? I had issues with hd5450 but worked fine with the 710.

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.

      I'm trying to upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra. My Sierra is working and booting great with the latest Clover 5.0 r5115, but when trying to upgrade to High Sierra, any time the computer reboots into the installer, it gets stuck at the line "Start ReadKernelCache". The screenshot is attached. I've tried the following troubleshooting steps that I've read in other similar posts, none of which worked. It always remains stuck at that line:
       
      Boot with UseKernelCache=No and/or -x and or -f Temporarily remove discrete graphics card and try to install with integrated graphics Add MATS to the Drop Tables list in Clover Configurator Look for an option similar to "Above 4G Encoding". My motherboard doesn't seem to have that. Try a bootable USB drive with the High Sierra installer instead of the App Store mechanism. The USB boots great, and I can initiate the installation, but upon reboot, I get the same issue trying to boot into the installer.   Disable integrated graphics in the motherboard's BIOS    
      Below are my system details. It seems like it should be possible, based on this post, to run High Sierra with this motherboard and CPU, but I can't get the installer to run. 
      Thanks for any help!
       
      Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5-TH
      CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K
      Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 
      Clover: 5.0 r5115 with basically no mods from the default ISO aside from enabling APFS driver

      Hi,
      Below are the specs of the system:
      Gigabyte H61M-s 16 GB DDR3 RAM EVO 860 500 GB (APFS formatted) i3-3220 Zotac GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X (currently using HDMI) Dual booted with Windows 10 on a different drive Config.plist and EFI are at the bottom.
      I have been struggling with a very specific problem since months ago that I still haven't been able to find a working solution for. Before this, I had my hack running on High Sierra that was installed using the tonymac tools. Recently, I reinstalled the OS using the vanilla guide, and the problem is still there after installing the web driver (which I have done using this guide from Hackintosher). I have also tried different builds of macOS 10.13.6 and their corresponding webdriver, and the problem has been the same.
      I have the correct version of Nvidia web driver installed for my version of macOS. The installation was smooth and the Nvidia icon shows up in the status bar. Below, I have explained what happens with different settings.
      1. When the webdriver is disabled in clover, the system works, but obviously with tearing animations, stretched screen resolution and no GPU acceleration. The about section shows the graphics as "Display 5MB". The login screen consists of a plain grey background. Just how it is when you freshly install the OS with non AMD GPUs.  
      2. Now, when the webdriver is enabled in clover and the system is booted, after the apple logo, the screen turns off for a second (to switch resolution), turns back on with the login screen at correct resolution and blurred HS background (like it is supposed to), then shows the shut down screen, then a black screen with cursor in corner, then back to login screen...this goes on and on while the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive. Here's one of the threads I was able to find on similar problem. YouTube link for the video that I have recorded of my screen. The weird part is that this exact thing happens even when the macOS is setup to login automatically, i.e. it displays the frozen login screen with the password field.   3. When the webdriver is enabled along with safe mode in clover, the screen resolution gets fixed and the monitor name is also detected. The about section shows the graphics as "Nvidia Chip Model 6143 MB". But there's still no GPU acceleration and this time, the Nvidia icon is missing from the status bar. This is the closest that I have been able reach to success.   4. When the webdriver along with "Set Nvidia to VESA" is enabled in clover, the system boots up, Nvidia icon is visible in the status bar and when clicked, shows that the webdriver is enabled. But everything else is the same as when the web driver is disabled, as shown in the 1st point above, except that the about section now displays graphics as "Nvidia chip model 5 MB".   Could anyone please help me out? It has been many months and I am now tired of trying and failing. I am completely lost at this point. I have seen so many posts from people with a fully working GTX 1060 on their hacks, yet I am unable to get mine to work. I am guessing it's just an incompatibility problem with my specific version of GTX 1060. Or may be it is just a problem on the software side? Maybe it's just a missing kext, or a single line of code needs to be changed in config.plist? I am also taking into consideration that it could be a problem with HDMI because I haven't yet been able to test out any of the 3 DisplayPorts that the GPU has, due to lack of a DP cable.
      I would be really grateful if anyone is able to help me out with this.

      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?
