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:

 

Send me iMac.at.net.zip

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

ALL is back to normal  for my NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 :wink_anim:

EDIT **** 

But  booting with Mac Pro 5.1 create Install Media Install macOS Mojave not working on the installer :rofl:

one problem solved and another coming :angel: I am pretty sure Updating macOS Mojave with a MacPro 5.1, update is failed

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.

@ernani

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.

      I have an old Hackintosh that I have brought back to life. An ASUS P5KPLAM-SE mobo, Intel Core 2 Quad, with a Sapphire HD 5670 1GB graphics card. It used to work just fine on High Sierra 10.13.3 (I think it was .3) However I only used the DVI port. Updated to 10.13.6 and with AMD kexts rollback to the previous versions I got everything o wrk just fine: boot, HDMI video, HDMI audio etc etc. The only problem I face is that my USB keyboard and mouse freeze/hang seemingly very random... I can not seem to get it right. Unplugging and replugging the USB device makes it work again, sometimes for a few seconds sometimes for an hour ... No idea what's wrong... Have tried tons of options in clover, USBInjectall.kext with port limit patch, whatever I could find... Would there be anyone out there who would have an idea of what could be the problem?

      Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah   Still using C2D in 2019!
      Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave.
       
      Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030
       
      Config:
      Gigabyte EP43-DS3L
      Core2Quad Q9300
      6 GB DDR2 RAM
      Asus GT1030 2GB
      Sandisk SSD 128GB
      TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB
      Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)
       
      SMBIOS: iMac14,1
      Clover: 4297  4360
       
      A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!
      You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.
      There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.
      For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.
      You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.
       
      Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.

      Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows
      This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ).  @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet...
       

      Pre-Requisites
      8GB or larger USB drive.  Edit: Recommend 16GB or larger for macOS Catalina 10.16 Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple
      1)  Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby)

      to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive.  A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download...

      2)  Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg
      3)  Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)...
      Note:  You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website.
      Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition
      1.  Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition
      2.  Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder
      3.  Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU --->  2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System"
      Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent
      Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed.  Don't forget to apply the changes at the end...
      Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System
      1.  Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder.  Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"...
      2.  In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"...
       
      Clover Settings
      Clover configuration is required now.  The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky.  If not, the hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide has some good explanations on the various settings available and also offers sample configuration files based on CPU type.  Also, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad.
      The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below
      config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here.  You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware).  In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine.  Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ...
      What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?
      Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app.  In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)...
      -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/  
      ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility...
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app  
      The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume.  Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)...
      cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command Updated Download Links for macOS Mojave 10.14.6_18G103
      Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist  
      Note: In Mojave, Apple has removed the --converttoapfs NO and --applicationpath arguments from the startosinstall utility....
       
      eg to use startosinstall for the above section "What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?", the syntax is now
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD  
      This basically means that for Mojave, the default installation will always convert the target volume to the apfs file system.
