Hi,

 

I'm using the same motherboard (H370-HD3) with i5-8600 & RX 570 GB on Mojave 10.14.4. I have the same problem  "When I press shutdown it restarts the machine"

 

Things that I have tried:

 

1. Remove all usb connections as shutdown clicks

2. APCI-> FixShtdown = true /

3. Renaming FixShutdown to Fix_Shutdown_004 or FixShutdown_004

4. darkwake=2 or darkwake=8 in clover flags

 

Using AptioMemoryFix-64.efi in Clover/drivers64UEFI with EmuVariableUefi-64.efi though I didn't install RC scripts volume.

 

Can anybody help me to fix it? Thanks in advance.

 

Please check my initial post, you need to do some either DSDT or SSDT hotpatching to avoid this.

Thanks.

I used your DSDT file and also used slide=0 in clover bootflags to fix this issue. But one front usb port isn't working. I have 2 usb 2.0 & 1 usb 3.0 front usb ports. I think your Cabinet have different combination of in front usb ports...right?

 

I also noticed we really need to use AptioMemoryFix-64.efi & EmuVariableUefi-64.efi with  "install RC scripts volume" option as H370-HD3 doesn't support NVRAM.

Yes, so far I haven't found a way to use native NVRAM :(

 

Regarding USB:

Recently I tested a new method with hackintool. The tool comes with its own manual. Following its procedure, you create either a kext or an .aml file which injects only your usb ports. I would give this a try and follow the documentation it provides.

1.4 Check BIOS and install

I've attached my current BIOS config "hack2". You can place that on a fat32 drive (the EFI partition of your install USB drive might be an idea) and see if it loads. It's made for and with the F2 BIOS.

Thank you so much for your detailed guides.

Could I ask some question?

I hope to find the "hack2" file what you mentioned.

How can I find it?

I gave up. Better to sell it.

Thank you very much!

I have throw it out of my window; // haha

And I have buy one DW1560, awesome, too easy to drive it!

now my wifi and bluetooth is OK.

thanks again.

Guys, I'm testing something out, maybe you can test it to. This should both

a) lower our idle speed and make the system more responsive while reserving more power 

b) fully activate the iGPU for usage in mac os, making things smoother and more efficient

 

Here's how to do it:

  1. Change SMBIOS to Macmini8,1 (It's a coffee lake platform)
  2. Remove all iGPU injections, including any set IDs from config.plist
  3. Uncheck "KernelPm" if it was checked
  4. Make sure you have Whatevergreen.kext and lilu.kext installed
  5. Use hackintool to adjust our config.plist:
    1. "Framebuffer" menu, either select Mojave or High Sierra, depending on what you are using right now
    2. Select "Patch" -> "System Config" -> Gigabyte -> H370M-D3H
    3. This should lead to Platform-ID 0x3E9B0007 and device ID 0x3E9B
    4. Select "File" -> Export -> Clover config.plist and select your config.plist
  6. Upon reboot enter BIOS setup and select "Initialize display first: iGPU" (no matter if you have a dGPU installed)
  7. Have a display attached to iGPU and dGPU. If you only have one screen, move it to the iGPU. I think acceleration via dGPU will still happen...

My patch looks like this:

Side effect:

  • iGPU measurements gone from Intel Power Gadget, but still available in iStat Menu
  • My Idle dropped to 1.27GHz
  • Not checked it max speed is capped, it goes up to 3.80GHz right now

It if works for you too, I'll add it to the guide.

Hi, thanks for this guide... I'm glad to see others using this mainboard for Hackintosh. I've been using Macmini8,1 SMBIOS and Platform-ID 0x3E9B0007 for about a month now and I can confirm that it's stable and no glitches with iGPU as I've seen with other SMBIOS id's. I have an I3 8100 which has a UHD 630 iGPU that's a little different, as I understand, than the others UHD 630's in the CPUs family. I have patched the framebuffer in order to get all 3 display ports of the MB (DVI, HDMI and even VGA... with a little workaround). I currently am using dual display with DVI and VGA. In idle the CPU goes down to 1.3-1.7GHz according to Power Gadget, 1.3GHz according to RehabMan's HWMonitor and maximum of 3.6GHz as you can see in the screenshot.

Stil... I'm not really sure if it's ok to use this platform ID if you have dGPU installed. I think it's better to use headless platform ID (0x3E920003 or 0x3E910003) and SMBIOS (imac18,x for Coffee Lake). It's closest to how real Mac works.

iMac18,x are not Coffee lake - I noticed much better power management with macmini8,1 SMBIOS compared to iMac18,1 or iMac18,2

 

I use a dGPU with macmini8,1 and the only thing I need to do is to set the BIOS to initialize and use the iGPU first. Otherwise I get severe artifacts for all graphically accelerated apps and random KPs. The iGPU doesn't show up in Power gadget, but it is used for acceleration.

 

I have not tried a headless Coffee lake platform-id, I might do that before changing the guide to recommend a native Coffee lake SMBIOS.

Introduction

The H370 chipset powers 8th generation Intel Core-i CPUs. Even though the name H370 rings comparable to Z370, the H370 is based on newer silicon. This it also requires some new approaches compared to the Z370. An example would be on-die USB 3.1 and WiFi support.

 

Since this guide is not a "hold-your-hand-every-step" guide, I assume you know:

  1. Clover installation and configuration
  2. How to create an install medium for MacOS
  3. Access and configure the BIOS
  4. Have heard of ACPI patching (I'm a newb at this myself)

 

What works

  • Sleep (via DSDT edits and emulated NVRAM)
  • On-board Audio (via AppleALC and native AppleHDA)
  • Native power management (without any kext or patch)
  • All USB ports (and only those present are active)
  • iGPU for both acceleration and display
  • dGPU (I'm running an Nvidia GTX 1080)

 

Untested

  • NIC --> I'm using WiFi only

 

What doesn't work

  • Native NVRAM via AptioMemoryFix.efi
  • DMVT Pre-alloc higher than 64MB (but not necessary)

 

Community additions

User @Panzerschiffe added a helpful post, altering this guide for user with AMD cards and not needing on-board sound.

He also runs Mojave, which I don't run yet.

 

 

Changes to the guide:

22.5.18: Added SSDT hot-patching to enable sleep, replacing DSDT static patching as an alternative.

23.5.18: Add iMac18,1 as alternative SMBIOS config for those relying on the iGPU for output

25.6.18: Added update info

28.8.18: Small changes for clarity, changed info for afps loading & updated USB patch for 13.6

04.10.18: Update to Mojave will come once Mojave is more mature

02.12.18: Removed unnecessary patches, fakepciid and audio patch method & linked to AMD post & added whatevergreen.kext as replacement for previous GPU kexts

02.03.19: Removed unnecessary fakeid and ig_platform_id injections, ACPI patches - this is all handled by whatevergreen & lilu. In testing is a Framebuffer patch, see this post.

04.03.19: Added Germany keyboard layout and updated pre-patched DSDT.aml removed DSDT patching

 

 

1. Installation

This guide heavy inspired by the work of /u/corpnewt of /r/hackintosh and his (sorta) Vanilla guide

 

1.1 Create the install media for MacOS

Follow this, if you are using a Mac to start off with. If you are totally new to MacOS, then please check the basic guide Creation of an installer media in windows or linux

 

1.2 Install Clover on the install media

Using the Clover installer, ensure you are installing to the USB medium you are using for the installer.

Chose the following options, leaving the others on default: 

 

  • UEFI driver: AptioMemoryFix
  • UEFI driver: ApfsDriverLoader
  • UEFI booting only
  • Install to ESP

 

You have to get your hands on an apfs.efi. A google search can help, or extracting it from the Installer package. Make sure you procure a version matching the MacOS version you are about to install. Place the apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI.

 

1.2 Adjust the config.plist for the installer

You can use the config.plist attached as a guideline, but take a look at it before and at least adjust the SMBIOS - otherwise it won't boot.

Attention: The attached plist contains audio patches introduced by a post-install step. If you run into problems, you might remove those. It also contains a manual slide value, which should normally not be needed, but works fine for me. It is also tuned for usage with an Nvidia Pascal dGPU as main GPU.

 

The config you create now should serve you nicely for install and running the system.

 

Take care of adding the following basics:

  • SMBIOS: iMac18,3 - You can generate a serial number via Clover Configurator. The creation of a proper SMBIOS is covered in many guides to good extend
    • Note: If you aim at using the iGPU for output, a user reported that iMac18,1 works better - since iMac18,3 produces severe flicker. I'm now also testing 18,1
  • Look at the graphics section and adjust the injection for Intel to your situation

Important:

Change 0x59120003 to 0x59120000 if you don't use a dGPU as your main display Driver and instead use the iGPU for output.

Also note. SMBIOS iMac18,1 has been reported to work better in this configuration. But 18,3 works fine for me.

1.3 kexts and friends

Add the supplied SSDT-UAIC.aml to "patched" - it limits the injected USB Ports to the actual number and ports valid for this board.

 

Required kexts on "Other":

 

We are leaving sound out at the moment, this is something for post-install.

 

1.4 Check BIOS and install

You should be ready for install. But before you reboot, please take a look at your BIOS and set it up accordingly (copied from the aforementioned guide and adapted):

  1. Load Optimized Defaults
  2. Disable VT-d setting
  3. If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it
  4. Enable CSM - This is sometimes needed to dual screens to work
  5. Set OS Type to Windows 8/10 or OtherOS - I have not seen a difference
  6. Turn off internal Serial and Parallel port
  7. Turn off Network stack for boot
  8. Turn off wake-on-lan (for now)
  9. Set XHCI Handoff to enabled
  10. Don't enable decode over 4G
  11. Depending on your GPU, set priority for boot
  12. Set internal GPU (iGPU) to enable - not auto or disabled
  13. Set DMVT pre-alloc min to 64MB and max to 128MB. For this selection to appear you might need to reboot after setting iGPU to enable
  14. Set USB legacy to enabled
  15. Activate XMP profile 1 f your Ram has it (mine doesn't and I added the timings manually)
  16. Set ERP to enable, disable platform power management (I need to do more research if this could be enabled)

 

I've attached my current BIOS config "hack2". You can place that on a fat32 drive (the EFI partition of your install USB drive might be an idea) and see if it loads. It's made for and with the F2 BIOS.

 

The install itself should be like other MacOS Hackintosh installs with it several reboots and ensuring to select the correct boot device in Clover.

 

2. Post-install

 

2.1 Install clover on target

This is a no-brainer, but install a fresh copy of Clover on your target medium.

 

During install select again AptioMemoryFix but also additionally

  • EmuVariableUefi-64.efi
  • Install RC scripts on target volume

because otherwise NVRAM doesn't seem to work

 

After the install, copy

  • config.plist
  • contents of "Other"
  • content of "patched"

to your new clover install.

 

2.2 Edit ACPI for slumber

Choose one option, not both. The hot-patch is experimental, but for the moment it is stable.

 

2.2.1 Edit DSDT

No more need for manual DSDT patching. If you still do it, you might run into unstable sleep. SSDT hot-patching + sane clover.config edits are enough

 

This is necessary only once on initial install and every time, you edit or upgrade the BIOS. The DSDT.aml attached to this post might work for your system or give you a file to compare to. Don't expect it to work for you, though.

EDIT: Since moving from F2 BIOS to F12 I did not repatch and sleep is still somewhat reliable. But to be 100% sure, you can still follow these steps.

I won't go into the details of DSDT extraction and patching. There are better guides (the linked guide is a rip-off of rehabman's guide from a different forum). Please follow such a guide to extract your ACPI data.

 

Locate and disassemble the DSDT with the newest iasl binary you can put your hands on, then open it with MacIASL in its newest version you can find (Hint: Here is a good source) You can check if the version is new enough if MacIASL doesn't throw error upon compiling a freshly extracted DSDT.aml or DSDT.dst

 

Add rehabmans repo (as per linked guide) and apply the following patches:

  • Rename _DSM to _XDSM
  • Fix _WAK Arg0 v2
  • USB3 _PRW 0x6D Skylake (instant wake)

Find the CNVW device and remove the _PWR function there.

 

Compile the DSDT and place it in "patched".

 

2.2.2 Use SSDT hot-patching

Instead of having to re-extract and re-patch the DSDT on every BIOS change or update, Hardware change one can also use ACPI hot-patching.

It's a combination of config.plist patches and an SSDT, which is hot-patched into the ACPI (if I understand the process correctly)

 

  1. You need to add this SSDT-GPRW.aml to your Clover folder in the designated position at Clover/ACPI/patched
  2. You need to add this patch to your config.plist. It goes into the DSDT patch section
      Reveal hidden contents

     

    
    
    	<dict>
    					<key>Comment</key>
    					<string>change Method(GPRW,2,N) to XPRW, pair with SSDT-GPRW.aml</string>
    					<key>Disabled</key>
    					<false/>
    					<key>Find</key>

    					<key>Replace</key>
    					<data>
    					WFBSVwI=
    					</data>
    				</dict>

     

     

Note: This works for me, but the patch removes the _PRW method from all devices in the DSDT. This could have side-effects. So far, I have seen none. At the moment I'm also not applying any other patch, compared with the additional edits I made to the DSDT method before.

 

2.3 Install kexts to system

As mentioned in the install section, it's better to follow rehabman's instruction and install USBinjectAll.kext to /L/E:


sudo cp -R Release/USBInjectAll.kext /Library/Extensions 
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /

2.4 Enable onboard Audio - Install AppleALC kext

Make sure your EFI partition is mounted and that you have a vanilla AppleHDA kext available. See below for a guide how to get a vanilla AppleHDA if needed

Note: Our Audio codec is ALC887 and it's running with layout ID 1.

Download the newest AppleALC kext from here and install it together with lilu.kext from here into your usual /clover/kexts/others location. Done. No scripts or config.plist patches necessary.

Add layout ID 1 to config.plist, if it's not there yet:


<key>Audio</key>
		<dict>
			<key>Inject</key>
			<integer>1</integer>
			<key>ResetHDA</key>
			<true/>
		</dict>

If you previously  installed any  audio patches, please follow this guide to "vanilla-ize" your install.

 

2.5 Optional steps for Graphics

If you have a dGPU, now it's the time to install its drivers and adjust the config.plist for it. The detaisl are specific to your GPU and thus of scope of this guide. Yet, my supplied config.plist is ready to be used with Nvidia Pascal cards and using the Nvidia web driver.

Whatevergreen.kext helps with Intel iGPU and NVIDIA dGPU fixes.

 

At the moment I'm also testing out a special bootflag: 'shikigva=12' to enable faster rendering in Final Cut Pro X. Without whatevergreen.kext and a shikigva bootflag, rendering in final cut seem very slow.

 

2.5.1 Framebuffers

If you're facing problems with output from your internal GPU, you can try the framebuffer patches listed by @BackwardMac:

 

2.6 Install a proper keyboard layout

You might not be using a fancy Apple branded keyboard. If you use a PC keyboard, you might be annoyed by the differing layout and usage of keys. As a German, you might find yourself quitting applications, since alt gr + Q won't add an @, but quit your current application. To fix this, you can simply install a different keyboard layout. Copy it to /Library/Keyboard Layouts/ and chose the layout in System Preferences, Keyboard in the section "Other". Deleting the previously selecting layout makes sure that only this one is used. Nice little trick.

 

A keyboard layout for German keyboards is attached and works wonders

 

3. Updating

Updating inside 10.3.x/ 10.4.x point updates doesn't require much attention:

  1. Download the update from the AppStore as any Mac would do
  2. Allow the system to reboot
  3. Before booting MacOS with Clover, make sure to disable extra drivers for dGPUs which require non-native support.
    1. If using an Nvidia dGPU: Remove "nvda_drv=1"  from your boot arguments and disable Nvidia injection
    2. If using a non natively supported AMD card, do the same for AMD (I'm not using AMD, thus I cannot be specific)
  4. Boot into the newly created Install MacOS partition
  5. Repeat this process until the Install partition is gone
  6. Boot MacOS again, still following 3., and potentially install updated drivers
  7. Your Audio might require re-patching

 

4. ToDo

  • Move away from static DSDT patching to SSDT hotpatching --> requires my work
  • Native NVRAM --> requires developer work
  • Audio without AppleHDA patching --> requires developer work

I have the same motherboard and tried to use the SSDT-UIAC.aml by placing in pathced folder of EFI but USB 3.0 & USB 3.1 ports only detects 2.0 usb drives. I tried USB 3 flash drives but its not being detected. The USB 3.0 flash drives only detetcted on fornt USB 2.0 ports.

 

Any help will be appriciated.

Hi @poles89, first: Please, first don't quote the entire posts, it's massive and can be confusing.

 

Second, regarding USB. Please follow the instructions by hackintool to generate a .kext for driving your USB. Hackintool makes it easy. When you start following its tutorial, delete the SSDT-UIAC.aml - If you struggle to find hackintool or its for patching in your USB ports, then you might want to start with reading general starting guides about hackintoshs, because it's still more of a self-researching and self-teaching experience.

@Donde, @poles89

USB patching may look intimidating but is not that hard to do and is better to do it yourself. Just follow @RehabMan 's guide. It's also a good exercise for what you will experience with building a hackintosh. Just in case I attach mine... Apart from the USB port at the back I have 2 front USB 2.0 (HS13 and HS14).

@Gymnae

I just installed a Nitro+ RX 480 so I started experimenting with headless mode. I'm using imac18,1 and 0x3E910003. For now everything seems ok. The card seems native... No extra kext and no clover change was required (except of course for the SMBIOS and Platform ID change for headless mode).

1.3 kexts and friends

Add the supplied SSDT-UAIC.aml to "patched" - it limits the injected USB Ports to the actual number and ports valid for this board.

 

Required kexts on "Other":

 

 

@Gymnae seems XHCI-300-series-injector.kext is obsolete as per commit on the 20 Oct 2018 (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All/commits/master)

The right kext to use is now XHCI-unsupported.kext and it can be found inside the zip https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All/archive/master.zip

 

 

About Macmini8,1 (take care it's Mac with M uppercase real mac mini, not sure if the difference has impact or not), I don't see much differnece in term of power management but I confirm it works as well as iMac18,3

 

About the "Kernel and Kext patches" section, the patch listed are for 10.13.x.

For people having trouble to have all USB port working, follow https://hackintosher.com/forums/thread/list-of-hackintosh-usb-port-limit-patches-10-14-updated.467/

There is the correct patch for 10.14.x. I got all my USB2 & USB3 ports working directly with USBInjectAll.kext + XHCI-unsupported.kext (but I'm not 100% it's useful, I haven't tried to remove it yet) + the patches for 10.14.x

@Panzerschiffe @gymnae thanks for the guide!

 

Just a note if anyone has black screen issues when using Imac18,3 in SMBIOS you need to use the Board-Id from iMac 14.2. This is only when using AMD graphics card. I am using RX570 with Gigabyte H370 Aorus Gaming WIFI motherboard.

Hi gymnae,

 

thanks for this guide. Just followed your suggestion to use Hackintool for frame buffers. It didn't´t work and ended up with a black screen. Using your patch it worked flawless, except one issue. At boot the apple has a red background at second stage and the bar turns green. I could resolve it by installing the CSM Video driver - but IMO that's not a proper solution. Any suggestions?

THANK YOU for this guide !!!!! I used it for my brother's new machine.

I did not follow it exactly but for sure it was a tremendous part of the solution.

Internal graphics works but stuck with 7Mo and glitches...I tried several things that did not work and finally we decided to buy a Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 580 8Go since it works really great and out of the box with my own z370 hd3p configuration.

Catalina update:

If anyone wonder what is the status with Catalina, it works. (tested 10.15.1)

 

Summary: Upgrade Clover/Lilu/WhateverGreen/USB Patch & launch Catalina upgrade from  Software Update in System preferences

Details bellow:

 

Here is what I've done to ensure a safe upgrade:

1) Goal: Update Clover/Lilu/WhateverGreen/USB Patch to latest version to ensure 10.15 compatibility

a) I created a Catalina install disk with Disk Maker X

b) I've installed Clover r5098 (was the latest version when I did it) on the USB drive

c) I've copied the config.plist and missing kext from the EFI partition of my SSD to the EFI partition of the USB Driver.

d) I've replaced Lilu and WhaterGreen by latest version (Lilu 1.3.9, WhateverGreen 1.3.4)

e) I've updated config.plist with clover configurator to have USB patch for 10.15 (cf https://hackintosher.com/forums/thread/list-of-hackintosh-usb-port-limit-patches-10-14-updated.467/)

f) I rebooted and choose the USB Drive on the BIOS boot menu (to load clover from the USB Drive) and booted on my SSD

g) I verified everything was still working fine.

h) I've copied EFI of the USB Driver to EFI of my SSD (so my EFI on SSD is up to date)

 

2) Goal: Ensure the USB Drive boot on Catalina installer (this is my recovery drive in case something goes wrong and I need to reinstall or restaure from TimeMachine)

a) Boot on the USB Drive from the BIOS boot menu, boot Catalina installer in verbose mode. When booting without verbose mode, my computer restart after few seconds.

 

3) Do the upgrade

a) From Mojave, launch Catalina Upgrade from  Software Update in System preferences and follow the step

I WISH I could also move on from High Sierra, but as long as my GeForce 1080 drives my gaming itch in Windows, I cannot.

Good to hear it works well :)

 

Right now I'm trying out the iMacPro19,2 SMBIOS - it works nicely.

@Gymnae 

help me please friend.
Sorry for my bad english.
I had the following configuration:

ASUS H110 + I5 4440 (HDGraphics 4600) + Nvidia GT 710
Working perfectly with High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G65)

I bought the Gigabyte H370M D3H and an I5 8400 processor

Before I first started, I reviewed your tutorial.
I checked my BIOS settings, exactly as you taught. And I started my hackintosh.
Everything worked as before. Except the USB ports. I installed the USBInjectAll and it worked.
I used the computer for 5 days. Today I went to work with Final Cut Pro X. Eventually I edit videos for work. Final Cut is failing to edit. Similar when the TV goes down.
usually the fault appears between transitions.

I quickly remembered about my SMBIOS. When I checked my SMBIOS MacBookAir 7.2. I revisited your tutorial and noticed that you suggest SMBIOS iMac 18.1 or 18.3. I tested 18.1 and 18.3 and it didn't solve the problem.
I thought maybe it was minah GT 710, I removed it and my hackintosh didn't start. Maybe it's the flags on clover, my HD 630 is working on OSX, but it didn't start. I didn't want to insist because I don't know if the problem is with the GT 710.

I also noticed that OSX sometimes gets too slow, crashing. When I go to '' About my Mac '' my processor description is '' unknown ''
When I add a video to Compressor, it also introduces the failure of '' tv out of air ''

Not sure what it could be, could you help me?
Maybe the solution is to re-install, but the graphics acceleration is working, my games are working. My only problem is this glitch in Final Cut Pro.

I tested saving the video.I thought BUG was only in Final Cut.But once saved the video also shows the errors.

Thank you very much.
Thank you!

I got a Config.Plist in a forum. Resolved the issue of the '' tv out of air '' effect. But my Final Cut closed all the time. The compressor also closed unexpectedly. I updated Final Cut and it did not resolve. Finally, I decided to reinstall OSX. I created a pen drive from Mojave. Everything is apparently OK. audio ok. my GT 710 ok, ethernet ok.


But my USB are in trouble. USB 3.1 works ok, USB 2.0 also ok, USB 3.0 also ok. But 2 rear USB 3.0 ports are not working. The front 2 USB 2.0 ports don't either. My front SD card reader isn't working either.


What is working:
- audio - ok
- ethernet - ok
- GT 710 offboard video - ok


USBs that work:
all except 2 rear USB 3.0 and 2 front USB 2.0 + SD card reader.


I carefully analyzed my SETUP and found nothing that had a problem.

I still have saved my HD SSD that contains High Sierra installed. I started my computer from this SSD. From High Sierra I do not have problems with USB. Everything works perfectly in the High Sierra.

I copied my High Sierra KEXTS to Mojave. The problem with USB continues. I imported High SIerra's config.plist into Mojave, but then hackintosh didn't start. Then I went back to config.plist.

If anyone can help me, I will be extremely grateful. It's a small problem, but it makes all the difference, because I use the front USB to connect my bluetooth devices. I also use the SD card reader a lot because I edit videos.


Thank you all!
