Audio is activated in the BIOS ???

 

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

 

Check System Information Extensions in Utilities:

Let KextUtility run again for cache rebuild

 

BIOS? I can't understand why it wouldn't be, but, I'll have to check that later as I'm not physically close to the machine now.

 

I checked System Information and found AppleHDA listed and there is a "No" in the Loaded? column.

 

AppleHDAController was also listed -- 3 times.... and also with "No" in the "Loaded?" column.

Yes - DSDT.aml is in EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/

 

KextUtility is busy repairing permissions and rebuilding cache......

 

kextstat now shows AppleHDA!!!!!! 

 

I now have an audio output option!!!!

and as soon as I tried a restart, it was all bad news.  it was caught in a reboot loop so I started up into the recovery partition and installed from a Time Machine backup taken just before I made the changes earlier.  I'll carefully try again and report back.

very beautiful

LayoutID 13 is configured in Auto-SwitchMode
Green at the back is LineOut (configured as internal speaker)
Front-out is headphones

If headphones are not plugged in, then LineOut back is active.

Have fun with the audio.

 

Edit:

Time Machine replaces the kext.
Do the rollback again.

before I'd seen your edit, I tried KextUtility and a reboot and the same thing happened - mid way through booting it started again and kept looping.

 

I'll try

1) Recover from a backup using Time Machine

2) Ensure the files from DSDT.aml_layoutID13.zipconfig.plist.zip and AppleALC1.2.6_und_Lilu1.2.3.RELEASE.zip are in the right spot

2) Rollback using your AppleHDA.kext_rollback10.13.3.zip kexts

3) Boot into Hackintosh, run KextUtil

4) Shut down

5) Hopefully it restarts without the reboot loop

I do not understand what you are doing wrong.
KextUtility is currently the last version?
Old versions do not work with HS and destroy the kernel.

I wish I knew

 

the latest version of KextUtility I can find is 2.6.6. Is that the most recent?

 

so according to this, 2.6.6 only supports up to 10.12.  Where can I find a 10.13 compatible version?

 

http://cvad-mac.narod.ru/index/0-4

 

I'll try [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and RepairPermissions instead.  They appear to be 10.13 compatible.

Vielen Dank MacPeet, I missed this step before. Now I have audio as well :thumbsup_anim:. Fortunately I have no boot loop problems.
 

Some other stuff if someone would face similar problems:

 

I reported recently a shutdown problem: I was not able to completely shutdown my hackintosh. Fyi it was caused by adding a second SSD.. for some unknown reasons. I replaced this SDD with another, now it works perfectly. 

 

I had also a weird mouse lagging problem, a really annoying one. I have found out that it was caused by an usb wifi adapter, it was probably to close to the usb receiver of the mouse. I placed the wifi adapter to the front usb plug and the mouse works again.

This is my first post in this forum so ... hello!
I got a free mobo from old Dell 790 SFF (bios A21). I added i5 2400, 4x4gb RAM and old PCI-e GT210 512mb and SSD. The installer starts, but the computer restarts after about 70% of the installation process. I have read this thread and unfortunately it looks like I can't prepare the HS (17E202) stick correctly. Will anyone share contents of EFI folder? Can I ask for preparation for GT210 gpu?
Please help, this is my first hakintosh.

so the news is that it .... worked!

 

I don't know what I did "wrong" earlier or "right" this time but I re-applied all steps carefully and now I have an Optiplex 780 booting quite happily *with* audio.

 

I still have weird lock-up issues that I'm trying to work around that *seem* to be related to the network adapter.  I've tried setting a reboot schedule just after midnight every day but even that doesn't work because some apps won't close so I'm investigating what options I have to force a reset.....

 

Many thanks to MacPeet and morpheusman and all others who have assisted.

 

Cheers

Hi folks,

   Has anyone had any issues with updating clover on their 10.13.5 hackintosh ? I have 2 machines and when I have updated to clover version r4522 on both machines, it broke Imessage. It gives a activation error on imessage and facetime. When I rolled clover back to r4428 both services worked again.

Anyone with a C2D or C2Q who installed Mojave on it? People installed Mojave on their C2D-based macs so in theory it should be possible.

I'm trying on my Optiplex 755, but no luck so far. It panics on CPU

Thanks, you made my day. I had the same issue and tried nearly anything and was about to give up. Rolling back to clover 4428 made iMessage work again here too.

@chris1111 Can you open Stocks.app for me? 
I have issues with Metal with the GT 710. Transparency issues in light mode, Apps that require metal (i.e. Stocks.app) do not load their UI et cetera

 

Nevermind. Just installed DP2, which fixed the issue

no way :no:
I do not have a Dell Optiplex 790 or newer! You have to open a new thread yourself.
Optiplex 780 has C2D or C2Q, so far no solution for SSE4.2!

Core 2 Duo/nVidia MCP79/89/i965-based systems will kernel panic on boot. The cause of this kernel panic has yet to be determined. It is NOT caused by USB drivers or a lack of SSE4.2. It does not occur in virtual machines.


I still have hope for my 755 :blush:

      So I have some less powerful hardware, that's why I'm installing High Sierra in 2020. Anyway, I'm trying to boot from the USB and I get the following errors:
      00:000 00:000 OCB: Missing DMG signature, aborting 00:585 00:585 OCB: LoadImage failed - Unsupported That's it. The logs begin and end there. The rest of the file is zeroes.
       
      Bootloader: OpenCore 0.5.9 Release
      Drivers:
      HfsPlus.efi

      If you need more details, here's my laptop https://www.asus.com/Laptops/X540LJ/ . I have the 512GB version with 4GB of RAM
       
      I found a lot of forum posts about people having the same error, except nothing solved mine. Also, I haven't found anything online about the error with the Missing DMG Signature.
       
      EDIT: If anybody needs my config.plist, feel free to ask for it and I'll happily post it

      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
       
    • By manav20
      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?
