ive successfully run high sierra now, but i dont know how to get my audio work. Only the HDMI and AirPlay devices are listed in the Settings. Ive already tried copying the recent lilu and AppleHDA kexts into the /kexts/other folder on the EFI Partition

Hi all ... I have managed to set up my 780 with High Sierra after a bit of struggle but now it boots without interruption and I'm rapt.

 

I had to edit the Clover boot loader options to specifically disable the ATI Injection option to get this to work.  I thought I would need this since I am using an ATI 5450 as many have recommended but with the option enabled this just threw a bunch of errors on the screen after trying to run the install or load options from the boot loader.

 

So now, my next priority is to get the resolution right.  The display should be set at 1920x1080 but it's set lower and stretched. 

 

How can I go about tweaking this resolution setting?  In the display properties there is only one option - 1280x1024.

 

Cheers

 

Paul

Did you rollback kexts as explained in Step 6 & 8?

 



Save in advance the following Kext's from your Sierra installation from /System/Library/Extensions:
 
AMDRadeonX3000.kext
AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle
IOAccelerator2D.plugin
IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext

hi morpheusman ... no.. I didn't ... I thought that was only necesary if the screen went black -- which it didn't

 

I'll try that tonight.

 

While I have your ear - so to speak - can you suggest how I would go about making whatever changes I need to make so that I can connect remotely (using eg VNC) to my hackintosh?  I tried from another machine on my home network and I keep getting "connection refused"

 

Cheers

Are your Bios Settings Correct, and is the Hard Drive seen in your Bios?

Hi morpheusman

Yes, I now have done this and it has worked!

 

Next challenge -- audio.  I tried following the steps but I had no luck with my Optiplex 7780 using the ALC method.

 

Any tips?  .... or are there some more detailed steps somewhere I can try to follow for this?

 

Cheers

Maybe I'm joining the party a little late, but in order to use remote access you'll need to enable this in settings > sharing > screen sharing.

DP5 update Optiplex780 also without problems

As always:
rollback graphics kext for the HD5450
rollback AppleHDA for audio

 

 

@unrealpants

This process has been fun and productive... but more problems keep appearing ... 

 

now the network drops out rather regularly....  I notice on another forum they suggest to do a 'NIC restart' 

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/network-stops-working-when-downloading-large-files.22473/

 

If that's the solution and it's something I can automate, I'm happy to try.

@MacPeet

 

no.... I tried using EasyKext to rollback using the kexts you supplied from 10.13.3 but no joy.  Is there something else I need to do?... in your first post, you suggested using 11 or 13 to match the on-board audio in Clover Configurator.  I'll try searching for those instructions and give it another go.  In other news, my network dropouts seem to have gone away.... yay!

 

....

 

ok so I've found these instrucitons https://hackintosher.com/guides/get-hackintosh-audio-working/

 

Should I be following these? I don't want to mess anything up now things are working so well (except for audio)

@MacPeet I replaced my config.plist, DSDT.aml and the AppleALC and Lilu files with the ones that that you supplied but still I see no option at all for audio output device.

 

it feels like I'm *so* close but have missed some minor but important step.

 

In this dialogue there are no options when I click "Selected sound output device"

Sorry, the Video kexts rollback is something I have not had to deal with because I upgraded to 790 and 990.

how could you tell that the voodoohda disabler is "still on board"?  if this is a bad thing, how do I get rid of it?

 

by "Check L / E" do you mean Library/Extensions ?

OK I've checked Library/Extensions - AppleHDA.kext is there

I checked System/Library/Extensions - AppleHDA.kext is there

I ran "kextstat" and could not see any reference to ApplieHDA.kext in the output.. the only thing close was com.apple.driver.AppleHDAController

i couldn't find any "Systeminformation.app/Extensions"

Is this meaningful?

AppleHDA does not belong to Library / Extensions
You probably installed the rollback AppleHDA 10.13.3 after Library / Extensions
delete AppleHDA in Library / Extensions
and Rollback AppleHDA 10.13.3 to S / L / E

Hi MacPeet .. I deleted AppleHDA in L / E and rolled back AppleHDA 10.13.3 to S / L / E
AppleHDA.kext definitely appears in S / L / E now and not in L / E but still no sound options and kextstatus is not showing even the AppleHDAController I saw yesterday
 

Should I try playing with the 'Options' that appear when the Clover bootloader comes on at startup?

Audio is activated in the BIOS ???

 

DSDT.aml is in EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ ???

 

Check System Information Extensions in Utilities:

      *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):

      Opa gente!
      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.
