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:

      Hi!

      Could anyone help me installing High Sierra on this system?
      I succesfully installed Sierra before on this system with help of Jake Lo (thanks!!), I just wondering if could High sierra possible to installed on this system?
      Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot.
      UEFI enabled, and for skylake I used IntelGraphicsDVMTfixup and IntelGraphicsFixup kexts. My bios is very limited and does not have any option to change dvmt prealloc or anything else.
      Everything works fine on Sierra.
      Here is my system:

      *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.

      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5101 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5101-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
