Lets Hackintosh the Surface pro 5 (2017)

After i recently created my first Hackintosh  to use as a secondary OS to Windows, i often dreamed about how awesome it would be to have the same on my surface tablet. I've seen that people in this forum sucessfully got to run it on Previous Surface generations, but this one is still missing. I've followed some guides here and there, and managed to properly boot clover, but when i try to start the macOS installer, it stops at "kdp_poll: no debugger device" (See https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ctu7elXpCFYfTtlyd7sMXvMj4tW12z0pv for a screenshot). I've already googled this error but found nothing useful.

 

So, to continue, i need some help from you... can anyone help me out with this?

 

My Efi folder is attached here, or otherwise there https://drive.google.com/open?id=1V7TubZpH04Zd3ujFLX9mHGMXx7lHLTxb

It's the "New" Surface Pro from 2017, with a Kabylake i5 7300U and Intel HD 620. Running on a 256 Gb SSD, 8Gb of Ram. I want to run this thing on my 64Gb micro SD card.


try

That one finally lets me use the installer and install macOS sierra on my SD card, and on the first boot (where you only see the apple logo with a loading bar on white background) it finishes the installation, but then shuts down. If i restart, it now only gives me the microsoft logo and attemtps to restart. I think that this could be related to the Surface pro beein unable to boot from an SD card, so i'll probably try to install it on an SSD partiiton of the same size.

Big thanks for your help so far; the problem was in fact that the Surface can't boot from the microSD slot right now. If plugged into the USB port via a hub, it works as it should and i can boot into macOS. And amazingly, The touchpad and Keyboard work without problems, but of course touchscreen, touchpad gestures and pen don't. but thats for a later time. 

 

What i need to get fixed now is the graphics. for some reason, it runs in the native monitor resolution 8just like clover, idk why), and the intel hd 620 graphics are listed in the "About my Mac" window, though with most likely inaccurate video ram amounts. Also the general Ui is very laggy, animatiosn slow, and strong screen tearing plague it, just like you would expect it with disabled graphics. i'll try to find out more about that tomorrow.

use my app for full dump

Nope, doesnt work. Says "Graphics Driver Failed to load: could not register with framebuffer driver!" during the boot process

CLOVER.zip

press O key in clover boot screen

devices - remove intelgfx

graphics - remove ig-platform-id

The kexts of that folder seem to be working, but something in your config gives me a blackscreen after a while of the boot process. I also can't find these boot options that you are describing in my version of clover.

just remove InjectIntel in O key, Graphics, InjectIntel

the problem is just a video, without video config in config.plist, work, but without acceleration

need check it

u can try it

 

MOBILE
- GRAPHICS : Check InjectIntel
- GRAPHICS : “ig-platform-id” changed to 0x591b0000
- DEVICES : “Fake ID” for IntelGFX changed to 0x59168086
- BOOT : Add “-disablegfxfirmware” under Custom Flags

Nice to find someone opening up a thread for this, actually I've been trying to hackintosh my Surface Pro 2017 for a while now

here's the list of the things I've got working so far

- Graphics (Full QE/CI) - some edits from rehabman's laptop config file will fix the black screen

- Audio - using voodoohda (both speakers and headphone jack works)

 

if you're getting a black screen with backlight on it means you've got graphics working, but due to the resolution

of the Surface Pro's monitor being so high there needs to be a patch that will allow for more memory allocation (if I'm not mistaken)

I'll upload my config here later.

EDIT: here you go

 

It would be nice I someone could help me fix the brightness

config.plist
