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.

 

Thanks MacPeet!

 

I got impatient and pulled the Nvidia card and did a fresh install with a Sapphire AMD 5450 I had since there's plenty of info on it here and your provided DSDT and config.plist seems to be close to my setup: Sapphire AMD 5450 1GB and Intel Core 2 Quad CPU... mine is a Q9400.

 

Most everything is working but unfortunately sleep wakes the computer but not the monitor and sound only works through HDMI not the green speaker output in the back. 

 

Anyways, can someone take a look at my attached IOreg/RunME files below? I'm close, but can't seem to get it yet. :cry:

This version is currently working with Mojave and Optiplex780 ...
(Clover / kexts / other) (layoutID 11 or 13)

AppleALC_Lilu.zip


only with rollback AppleHDA10.13.3:
(Install with KextUtility2.6.6 or EasyKextPro)

AppleHDA.kext.zip

 

WOW that worked! Sound works and never sounded so good... thanks MacPeet!

 

Only problem is sleep. The computer wakes from sleep but not the monitor and I have to reboot. I am using the DSDT from POST #1 for Core2Quad & 5450

Hello again I managed to boot from the Mojave usb stick but in the install screen nothing reacts the mouse and keyboard do nothing I think it has to do with the USB ports of my 790. I use a usbinjector kext file in dir other but no luck even without it it doesn't work. I do not use a dsdt file on the stick. What could it be

try this:
Change to USBInjectAll.kext instead of USB_Injector.kext

I have Mojave installed but have the video card hd5450 not working at the moment, has somebody the HD5450 working on Mojave.

 

Also problems with USB ports on the back I am using the USBInjectAll.kext but only 3 ports in the front is working at the moment.

--USB is working now on all ports I have insert in my config.plist the following found on internet:

  1. Open config.plist with clover configurator
  2. Select Kernel and Kext Patches
  3. Select the "+" at the button and input:
  • Name*: com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCI
  • Find* [Hex]:83FB0F0F 83030500 00
  • Replace* [Hex]: 83Fb0F90 90909090 90
  • Comment: USB 10.14 Patch]
  1. Save config.plist

Hi everyone, 

 

If I understand correctly, upgrading from 10.13.6 to 10.14 is not very different compared to an ordinary High Sierra 10.13.x update, right? My configuration is more or less the same as MacPeet's (Dell Optiplex 780: Q9550@2,83GHz, 16GB DDR, GT710 2GB 42", SSD, currently running 10.13.6). From what I understand after reading the latest posts, all I need to do is update with the latest clover, replace the kexts and the DSDT with the files from MacPeet's post from the previous page, and then perform the update. As my processor is Q9550 I shouldn't be needing a telemetry patch. Am I missing something?

 

Also, with the above graphics card (GT710), should I expect any problems with sleep or waking from sleep?

 

Thank you in advance!

@pepto

ok, XHCI is USB3
nice that USB goes now

 

HD5450 Mojave: No, No and No, currently no solution.
All HD5xxx and HD6xxx do not work with Mojave.
I changed to MSI GT710 2GB. Works OOB with HS and Mojave.

The GT710 can Metal (native without InjectNvidia and without WebDriver), the HD5450 can not Metal.

Please try Mojave on an empty HDD or SSD!
SMBIOS iMac13,1 is native to Mojave
Clover version must be new enough for Mojave.
Kext's to Clover / kexts / other
and try this

 

Danger:
After the installation and before the first start into the new system you need the telemetry patch from HS !!!
Q9550 can only SSE4.1
For Mojave SSE4.2 is needed. This is only available from Intel i3 1.Gen.

Thanks. But to be honest, I can't understand how I can copy the old com.apple.telemetry.plugin before the first boot into the system. Let's say I backup my existing High Sierra system with CCC, and to be on the safe side work on the back up, running the installer there (after I have replaced the necessary kexts and DSDT.aml in the EFI partition). The system will boot into the installer, reboot a couple of times (again into the installer) and then it will show the login screen. Do you mean at this stage, after the first login and right before the first reboot I should replace the above plugin?

 

Also can you please verify that sleep and waking from sleep works?

 

And finally, you mention we need to apply the telemetry patch after every Mojave update. So, again, right after the first login, when each 10.14.x update finishes we perform the copy, and then we will be allowed to reboot?

 

Thanks a lot!

I have a dell 760 and was running 10.13.6 without issue. I have updated to 10.14 and cannot get the audio to work. I have tried the Apple HDA rollback with the lilu.kext and applealc.kext from the dell 780 and this does not work. Any Suggestions??

 

Edit: The latest applealc & Lilu kext releases from github fixed the audio.

My Optiplex780 with GT710 and unsupported SMBIOS iMac10,1 (-no_compat_check) had no problems with preview jpg since 10.14 DP1-11 and 10.14.1 DP1. Everything works without problems here.

Hi Folks,

   I am just testing mojave on a Dell 755 with a GT610 card. I have seen a few forums on here that say the GT610 works in Mojave but with no instruction on how it works except other than deploying a NVDAResman.kext to S/L/E and while this works to an extent with mojave detecting the correct card and no lag , mojave does not detect the name of the monitor connected and only has a resolution of 1024x768. Also the screen has a black border around the edge. Has anyone here gotten the GT610 to work correctly and if so how was this achieved.

Hi Chris, 

    I have tried the installer but has not worked. It changes the resolution to 1920 x 1080 but it still has a black border around the edge of the display and the display type is not detected. I have tested the pc on multiple screens.

      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.

      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.

      *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):
