OK thanks.
Which trial was it for the 755, which worked well. Link to my thread?
I patch so much that I often forget, sorry.

Here is a roughly comprehensive summary of the three trials I have tested on Optiplex 755:

 

Trial 1: From your Sierra guide front page around March of 2018, based on AppleALC 1.0.18 from December 28, 2016:

Audio output worked, but I am unsure if the automatic headphone switching worked. Inputs may have worked, but after the 2018 security updates, the computer kernel panicked at boot, so I am unable to go back and test again easily.

Trial 2: From your High Sierra guide front page around April of 2018, based on AppleALC 1.2.3 from February 9, 2018:

Audio output worked perfectly, and headphones auto switched correctly. Input had one line-in option, which did not work using the front microphone port. This worked fine through at least security update 2018-002 on 10.12.6.

Trial 3: From your post on this thread on July 18, 2018, based on AppleALC 1.3.0 from July 18, 2018:

Audio output worked perfectly with headphones auto switching correctly. The input now had two line-in options, neither of which worked with a microphone. This works fine at least through security update 2018-004 on 10.12.6.

 

Let me know if you want checksums or plist excerpts. As far as I know, this latest trial is the best so far. I don't know if I tested the input on the first trial, or if it worked. I could always go back and test it on a fresh older installation, if that is really necessary.

 

Thanks!

Hey guys I'm new to hackintosh and I need some help...

My setup:

Dell Optiplex 790

i5 2500 not 2005k

Radeon RX 560 4gb

20gb of RAM

I followed every step from this guide but I cant seem to get to the installation screen.

I boot clover just fine and I get the apple logo and loading bar but I only get to half and then my computer reboots...

I see this installation guide is for the beta versions of high sierra the installer version i have is 10.13.6, is that what could be causing the installation to fail?

Any suggestions?

Try 

<key>Inject</key>
        <dict>
            <key>ATI</key>
            <true/>

You need also in kext/Other/WhateverGreen.kext

and Lilu.kext

But not sure I think this card need PSU minimum 400 Watt

This version was about changes in the external inputs.
Can you give a report on the 755?


LineOut works on both, LineIn doesn't but they never seemed to work for me

Hi pepto nice to see you

You have all of the latest Installer Update with the installinstallmacos.py script

 

You only hate to open terminal

 sudo /path to/installinstallmacos.py

or sudo press space bar and drop the script to the terminal window

follow by ENTER

Thank you for this awesome guide! :)

 

Sleep and sound seem to be the only things not working. I have AppleALC.kext and injected Audio 11 but still no sound.

 

Can someone take a look at my attached RunMe (IOreg) files below and let me know what I missed?

 

Send me iMac.at.net.zip

Optiplex780 / 760:
LayoutID 11 or LayoutID 13
The codec in AppleALC is broken for 780/760 since 10.13.4. Rollback AppleHDA from 10.13.3 is necessary.

      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.

      *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):
