Hi KGP , I'm the oner of a X99 hackintosch with a Gigabyte X99 UD4 mainboard and a I7. 5930K proc

I  followed your guide line by line and I didn't went so far with my newbie knowledge

I was able to do the CPU microcode update the bios  F24b ( thanks to your very good explanation).

I followed the MSR 0xE2 register unlock for OSX Kernel Write but it didn't patch anything ( I read somewhere else that maybe my mainboard doesn't need that , can you confirm ?)

Then I rename the bios exactly like it was before but I ended with an unreadable bios when I'm trying to flash it . Do you know what is wrong ?

So you see I still have a long path to follow to get a proper hackintosch running under Mojave

MSR register on GA motherboards is open for kernel write. No need to patch the BIOS firmware. Just do the microcode update, if necessary. Maybe somebody else can explain you how to properly flash the modified GA firmware. I do only use ASUS motherboard hardware. 

 

Good luck,

Thank you KGP for probably the most comprehensive and consolidated X99 guide.

I am just getting prepared.

Should C.4.e. be TSCAdjustRest instead of VoodooTSCSync ?

Thanks again to KGP for a superb guide. I successfully and painlessly, and quite quickly installed Mojave following KGP's steps.

However because of the present NVIDIA limitations on Mojave I'm now going to try KGP's High Sierra install instead.

To avoid future problems with Nvidia, which you will encounter for sure again along the upcoming 10.15 betas, I would directly change to Vega 56 or 64 instead :wink_anim:

macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta1 (18E174f)

 

Important Note: to properly load respective kexts under 10.14.4 beta1 during boot, Clover_v2.4k_r4862 is deemed necessary. @Slice recently committed respective modifications of kext_inject.c introduced by @PMheart .  

 

10.14.4 Beta1 XCPM_performance patch by @PMHeart:

Find     : 83E30FD3 E34109DF
Replace  : 83E33FD3 E34109DF
Name     : USB Port Limit Patch 3 ©PMHeart

 

The port limit patches should be used in line with the fully implemented XHC USB kexts.

 

However, it is still recommended to disable the port limit patches and use truncated 15-port kexts instead. This might avoid buffer overruns and will make your system more vanilla with respect to future macOS updates.

 

Enjoy and have fun,

Hi, thanks for your good Guide in Case of 10.14.3, with any of the Infos now have run the correct XCPM without any Errors after a longer Time in Idle State, before it was that my system stand to more than 50% still no Alan , no Clock (not count away) at 12:00 AM the time call 07:42 and any Parts of my system was run and I was able to restart the system. my System is a Asus Rampage V Extreme i7 5820K 4x4GB ( Quad) , a Samsung 960 Pro 512 as the SystemDisc, a Nvidia GTX 670 2GB and a GTX 970 4GB but in your Tutorial you have NVDAStartup.WEB.kext in /L/E after install the patched Web-Driver. I search in /S/L/E and I found a NVDAStartup.kext and I do the same  as what says the Tutorial but in all cases I can not found a NVDAStartup.web.kext, what is here wrong I don't understand, in my Sierra 10.12.6 in L/E/ I found this one not so in my Mojave 10.14.3 (18D42), I'm wondering that you have 18D45 what is here different ? My Update is a German Update .

In Case with Apple and Nvidia I found a Petition on change .org, Petition Mac OS 10.14 Apple does Nvidia not allow to make a Webdriver for Nvidia Products and we all help Apple to be a big Player and all Users have a chance to give Apple "Pressure" to work together with Nvidia to make Driver for Mojave.

Please help me a little bit to understand what is wrong with my patched NVDA-Webdriver.

My USB ports are all injected now and the Kext,.*ioreg and DSDT are here:

PS my Bios is a patched 3901.

Forget about patching the 10.13.6 web driver for 10.14 anyway. Your Nvidia GPU still will be useless under 10.14. I highly recommend to change to a Vega 56 or 64 instead. 

 

BTW.. please try to create fully implemented and truncated XHC USB kexts for your motherboard by exactly following my respective guidelines! Your current kext attached above is largely inadequate and cannot be added such to my XHC USB kext Github library.  

 

Good luck, my friend!

Hi, I have updated the bios first following this guide and then the system from 10.13.6 to 10.14.3.
The pc starts and I think it recognizes all the peripherals but I have doubts about the xcpm since the AppleIntelInfo.kext log is very short and also for some errors at boot like Unsynchronized TSC for cpu ...
I attach Ioreg, DarwinDumper log, EFI folder and AppleIntelInfo log

Thanks for your help.

Did you implement a properly adopted TSCAdjustReset.kext to your EFI-Folder by following my guidelines?

I think so as you can see from the efi folder from the link. I followed step 4 of the guide and I modified the info.plist by setting IOCPUNumber to 11 because the cpu i7-5820k has 6 cores and then 12 threads (IOCPUNumber = threads - 1 = 11).

 

I also tried to leave the old VoodooTSCSync file that I used before the update but the errors do not disappear

Download and implement THIS EFI-Folder and your system should boot properly. Subsequently perform entire post installation outlined in Section E.). If you still witness boot issues check once more your BIOS settings. The EFI-Folder now should be MacOS 10.14 build independent. 

 

The EFI-Folder assumes that you patched your BIOS firmware and unlocked your MSR register for Kernel write. If the MSR register is still locked, check KernelPM and enable _xcpm_core_scope_msrs © Pike R. Alpha kernel patch in config.plist.

 

For OC, you also need to apply the CPU microcode update to your firmware as outlined and described in my guide.  

 

Your GTX 780Ti is Kepler? In the latter case it will be natively supported by Mojave, but you might want to change to Vega 56 for 64 anyway when ever possible. 

 

Good luck,

 

KGP

Before moving to mojave I downloaded the last bios, updated CPU microcode and patched msr following the whole point B.1) Asus Mainboard BIOS Firmware Patching and B.2) Asus X99-A II BIOS Configuration but I enabled EIST and I deactivated 4G Decoding otherwise the system did not recognize the usb.

Now I did as you told me but I still have Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 2 and Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 4 and now the CPU is not recognized.

I replaced the whole efi folder and followed point E.1) XNU CPU Power Management (XCPM) Configuration with the following bios settings:

 

  • Advanced\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management Configuration\
  • Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST): Enabled
  • Turbo mode: Enabled
  • CPU C-State: Enabled
  • Enhanced C1 State: Enabled
  • CPU C3 Report: Enabled
  • CPU C6 Report: Enabled
  • Package C State Limit: C6(non Retention) state

 

These are the clover settings for KernelToPatch and KextToPatch and the appleintelinfo log

I did as you told me but I still have Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 2 and Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 4 and now the CPU is not recognized.

These are the clover settings for KernelToPatch and KextToPatch and the appleintelinfo log

You did not do at all what I told you! I told you to use the linked EFI-Folder, you don’t! You use a total mess of kext and kernel patches instead! 3 performance patches enabled at the same time! No check of KernelPM yet! Etc., etc., etc.

 

No surprise the this mess does not boot! 

 

If you do not do what I tell you,  I cannot help you, sorry and I really don’t like to waste my time.

 

Also patch your firmware to unlock MSR register for Kernel write.

 

Good luck! 

 

Over and out,

I downloaded and uploaded the efi folder you linked to and then modified kernels and kexts patches based on my system by taking them from this thread:

Your guide in some sections speaks specifically of the cpu "Broadwell" and my CPU is instead a "Haswell-e" and I do not read anywhere in this guide about patches "SMT" and "PKG" for "Haswell-e" so I'll have to take them somewhere...

then if some patches are generic I do not know but I do not see it written...

 

Why should I use KernelPM if the MSR is unlocked? it seems to me that you do not absolutely read the logs, do I have to highlight it? because I do not see obvious differences with the log on the front page.

 

mine:

MSR_PMG_CST_CONFIG_CONTROL.......(0xE2)  : 0x1E000005
------------------------------------------
 - I/O MWAIT Redirection Enable......... : 0 (not enabled)
 - CFG Lock............................. : 0 (MSR NOT LOCKED)

 - Package C-State Undemotion........... : 0 (disabled/unsupported)

if I'm wrong, correct me...

 

And then I never said that the system does not start.
The system starts but there are some errors in the log...


now i'll try to put only the _xcpm performance Kernel patch 10.14.3 (kindly provided by @PMHeart) of the first page but for the rest of the patches I do not know what to put.

If you still want to help me, maybe pointing out the correct patches for my system I'm grateful, otherwise thanks again for your help.

I downloaded and uploaded the efi folder you linked to and then modified kernels and kexts patches based on my system by taking them from this thread:

I already optimised the EFI-Folder for your i7-5820K (I am not stupid) and all is set to work with 10.14.3 and any other Mojave build! The EFI-Folder linked in the other post already considers all necessary adaptations to your build outlined in your signature (again I am not stupid) and should work for your system without any further modifications, especially when your MSR register is unlocked and you also applied the microcode update to your firmware as outlined in my guide. The actually implemented settings have been verified by many users of the i7-5820K and work flawless! 

 

It is also nonsense that my guide only considers Broadwell-E, README.md of my X99 EFI-Folder Github respository exactly outlines all necessary changes for the i7-5820K!

 

If with the linked EFI-Folder, your system still does not boot, check your BIOS settings.  

 

After successfully booting your system, you should still perform the post installation process outlined in Section E.) of my guide! However the post installation is not necessary for successfully booting your system, for the latter you just need to EFI-Folder linked in the other post without any further modifications! 

 

Good luck,

I once again replaced the whole efi folder with the one that you linked to me without adding Kext and Kernel patch and I started the pc over and over again trying to modify each time a different thing into Bios to try ALL combinations. (The bios is already patched with microcode and msr unlock: When I edited the bios I did not find any problem while running the uefipatch and UBU programs, so I assume I patched it correctly)

 

These are the items that I modified each time:

 

EIST (now disabled)
ASUS MultiCore Enhancement (now disabled)
VT-d Note (now disabled)
Decoding 4G (now disabled)

 

In addition to these changes in the bios I also tried to change the FakeCPUID from 0x040674 to 0x0306F2 (Haswell-E) and activate/deactivate KernelPM and Cores Patch...

 

The system starts ALWAYS but changes the number of "Unsynchronized TSC for CPU" entries in the boot log and the CPU is not recognized in the system info (3,3 Ghz Unknown CPU) .

 

For all the combinations I tried, the following commands returned the correct values as indicated in the guide.

 

"sysctl machdep.xcpm.mode"
"kextstat|grep -y x86plat"
"kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu"
"sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count"

 

What can I do? What am I doing wrong?

True.. I forgot to change FakeCPUID in your EFI-Folder.. may bad. You have to use 0x0306F2 of course. 

 

I don't really understand your problem. It is normal that TSCAdjustReset.kext fixes unsynchronised TSCs on boot or wake from sleep and the latter is also displayed within the verbose boot messages. This is just an expected behaviour and even mandatory in any case. The number of desynchronised TSCs to be synchronised varies from boot to boot (never the same). Without TSCAdjustReset.kext and without resynchronising the TSCs, your system would not even boot. That's why TSCAdjustReset.kext is absolutely mandatory. 

 

If you also successfully verified 

 

"sysctl machdep.xcpm.mode"
"kextstat|grep -y x86plat"
"kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu"
"sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count"

 

XCPM is properly installed and working on your system.

 

As your MSR register is unlocked you do not need to check KernelPM and or enable the core scope patch. If your MSR register would be locked, your system would not even boot without checking KernelPm and enabling the core scope patch.

 

I always understood that your system is not booting because of some TSC desynchronisations. But as I understand your report and results now, there is absolutely no issue and your system works and behaves absolutely as expected with the EFI-Folder linked in my other post, apart from the necessary FakeCPUID correction, as I forget to modify the latter for Haswell-E.

Correction of former macOS independent XCPM_performance patch

 

New EFI-Folders EFI-X99-10.14.3-Release-iMacPro1,1-020219.zip and EFI-X99-10.14.4-Beta1-Release-iMacPro1,1-020219.zip with Clover_v2.4k_r4862, working USB port limit patches and a macOS independent XCPM_performance patch valid for 10.13.4+ and all version of 10.14.

 

The correct macOS independent XCPM_performance patch valid for 10.13.4+ and all 10.14 versions reads:

 

Find:    C1E30848 63D389D0 48C1EA20 B99901
Replace: C1E308B8 00FF0000 31D29090 B99901

 

Fully vanilla EFI-Folders that should work with 10.13.4+ and all versions of 10.14, always provided that one also uses a truncated 15-port XHC USB kext in addition, with disabled USB port limit patches in the config.plist. There are still separate EFI-Folders for 10.14.3 and 10.14.4 Beta1, in case that somebody still wants to use a fully implemented XHC USB kext and the necessary respective USB port limit patches, which are disabled by default in the config.plist of each respective EFI-Folder distribution.

my fault, I thought those "Unsynchronized TSC" entries were not in the log and I saw them as errors to be solved

Only one thing, in the system info the cpu is seen as 3.3 GHz Unknown.


What can I do to fix this?

 

Thanks again for your help and your time.

Just use Type 0x0F01 in config.plist as hardwired in my default 10.14 EFI-Folder distribution:

This will replace "unknown" by Intel Xeon W, in concordance with SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 although in reality you use a Haswell-E. 

Unfortunately, the better cosmetic patch described in Section E.10) System Overview CPU Cosmetics of my HighSierra X299 iMacPro build and desktop guide does not work under Mojave. 

 

Hope this solves your last remaining issue.

      Hackintosh GUIDE (Work in Progress)
       
                        
      Introduction: 
      Hi Everyone,
      This Workstation used to be a Beast with Dual CPUs and tons of RAM, I Know it is now normal to get that much cores in a Desktop but it is still a very decent machine for me (As a Programmer), and I thought it would be a good idea to Install MacOS as the Daily Driver Rather than Linux and It turns out to be a very Great Experience (with Some Challenges ).
       
      Specs:
      CPU: 2x Xeon E5-2680 v2 2.8GHz Ten Core Processors RAM: 128 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC Memory GPU: SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 580 8GD5 Chipset: Intel C602 Audio: Realtek ALC3220 (ALC280) High Definition Audio SAS Drive Controllers (RAID): LSI 2308 SATA/SAS 6Gb/s controller with host based RAID 0, 1, 10 (4  Network Controller 1: Intel 82579 Gigabit Ethernet controller with Remote Wake UP, PXE and Jumbo frames support
      Network Controller 2: Intel Ethernet Controller I210
      NEC USB3.0 xHCI Controller: Renesas Electronics uPD720201 & uPD720202
       
      Working:

      - macOS Mojave install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ .app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader

      Download the RehabMan's CloverEFI fork (used 4701) and install with this options on "Install macOS Mojave":

      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - ApfsDriverLoader-64
      - UEFI Drivers - AptioMemoryFix64


       
       
      Make things works

      Will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop.
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
                    If you have modded BIOS with Advanced Menu and enabled 128MB DRAM-prealloc use 128MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
                    If no, then use 32MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.3.2.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the FakeSMC.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0915.
      - Download the VoodooPS2Controller.kext from here. I used version 2018-1008.
      - Download the IntelMausiEthernet.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1031.
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.1.
      - Download the AppleALC.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.4.
      - Download the VoodooHDA from here. I used the version 2.9.1.
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.2.6.
      - Download the AppleBacklightFixup.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1013.

      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.9.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the config.plist inside your destination disk EFI parittion with config.plist inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.
       
      Last step
       
      Copy all Kexts from flash drive to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       

       
      And last but not least
       
      I would like to thank the following community members, by making these dream possible:

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi
                               : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine,
       
      *Nota: Altri driver che si possono usare  al suo posto  sono:
       informazioni 
       
      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post
