Hi

Trying to run your config on i7-9800x, asus prime x299-a, rx vega 64.

Kernel starts to boot (from USB stick) and i see first screenshot for near 60 seconds, and then i see second screenshot (if i will wait more i see message 'still waiting for root device')

TSCAdjustReset was adopted.

 

UPDATE: seems that are only one USB port are seen by os x (i can insert usb stick into this port and boot installer). Tried kext-s from XHC-USB-Kext-Library, but no luck :( Keyboard/mouse not working, so i can't install macos in order to create working XHC-USB-Kext config with IoRegistryExplorer. I've also tried to boot high sierra installer (with usb port count patch enabled) - but result the same - no keyboard/mouse.

@Vladie I had similar problems with latest BIOS v1602. Reverted to 1503 and everything’s good again.

 

 

My CPU i7-9800x is supported since v1602. But i will try to revert, thanks.

UPDATE: unfortunately, downgrading to v1503 have no effect. will try to buy usb hub today (i have one working usb port), connect usb flash+keyboard+mouse to it and install mac os.

I've successfully installed mojave on asus x299-a prime + i7-9800x, using usb hub on single working usb port. Mojave didn't want to work with Asmedia 2142 ports, currently i have no idea how to make them active. Tried USBInjectAll+XHCI-unsupported, but no luck. Intel ports (except single working) also didn't work, but i see two USB 3.1 Bus intel controllers into USB device tree.

it's just a efi folder from KGP github repository. you need to use usb hub, inserted into cyan usb connector (it's located above single usb-c connector), for connecting usb installer flash, keyboard and mouse.

It's quite strange, but Asmedia ASM1074 driver is not loaded. I've installed KGP's ACPI patches (seems that they are matched X299-A prime, i've checked USB definitions), but this doesn't help. Is anyone know how to force this driver loading?

I was ready to write this off as an incompatible CPU.  But vladie seems to be able to boot into OSX fine.  He's running the same CPU and same motherboard as I am.  

 

I'm using the EFI folder from github as-is with the addition of the TSC kext.

 

Any ideas?

Yes I followed his settings. 

 

Other people have this same issue as well with the new intel chips. Did you do anything different?

currently mojave boots without problems (i've installed it on SATA drive). video (rx vega 64) works without any setup, 4k support working. the only problem that i currently have - non working intel 200-series usb controller, seems that this is problem with bios (i cannot downgrade it because of new-generation cpu support). so i decided to buy other motherboard (deluxe version) and try again.

 

ps. try my clover:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9fwikz8rz85joby/CLOVER.tar.bz2?dl=0

 

UPDATE: i've found a reason - why my USB doesn't work. on initialization, AppleUSBXHCI reports next:

 

XHCI@(null): AppleUSBXHCI::start: hardware exception occured

 

Seems that this can be some incompatibility with new CPU :(

 

UPDATE2: yessss!!!! XHCI is working. adding npci=0x3000 to kernel parameters solved this problem.

UPDATE3: Areca 1883i card works plug'n'play, Intel X540-T2 modified to be a small tree 10gbe too.

Bluetooth works plug'n'play with iogear bluetooth usb stick.

Even with your EFI folder I get the same issue.

 

Can you check your bios settings if you have anything different than the optimized defaults and KGP's settings?

Hi all,

 

First of all, I have to say that reading this topic (and its predecessor for HS) feels like heaven when you think about renewing your good-old-x58-based hackintosh like me :).

Long story short, I am currently looking at the ASRock X299 Taichi XE manual, and I am not 100% sure that this motherboard has its MSR 0xE2 register unlocked:

Could someone confirm that?

 

(Sorry if this has already been written somewhere else, but looking at the forum posts, I found several member having this mobo in their signature, but no clear confirmation is it is running great for this matter...)

And here are the respective USB port limit patches for 10.14.4 Beta1 provided by @PMHeart

Replace  : 4183FF3F 0F839404 0000

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,

First steps with a Sapphire Radeon VII under macOS 10.14.3 (18D42) and 10.14.3 SU (18D109)

 

IMG_3107.jpg.f6fa56cf8628e4152680f4e5f948e483.jpg

 

Today, I encountered a unique opportunity to perform some dirty first steps and tests with a Sapphire Radeon VII under macOS 10.14.3 (18D42) and macOS 10.14.3 SU (18D109) on a friend's system here in Berlin. 

 

IMG_3095.jpg.b90fdfc6cdc535085d0171277b728640.jpg

1.) The first disappointing discovery independent from macOS was that this GPU for now apparently seems not compatible with UEFI. The BIOS enforced "CSM" by default otherwise the ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe system would not have booted at all. 

2.) Once under macOS 10.14.3, the Radeon VII was rather recognised by macOS like a Vega Frontier at first place, with only one DP1.4 port actually natively working. 

 

1119083164_Screenshot2019-02-08at13_59_03.png.7f8c501032f0654b03655586189c8e7c.png

 

3.) After applying just some cosmetics to SSDT-X299-Vega64.aml and implementing the latter in line with Whatevergreen.kext, the Radeon VII appeared under "About this Mac" such:

 

226320375_Screenshot2019-02-08at15_49_11.png.f464a495b12bcbcda1c21b2a54bb4f09.png

 

Thanks to SSDT-X299-Radeon-VII.aml (which is basically SSDT-X299-Vega64.aml), Radeon VII and Radeon VII HD-Audio PCI drivers also correctly popped-up in Section "PCI" of Apple's system Report as properly implemented and fully loaded:

 

889179259_Screenshot2019-02-08at15_48_16.thumb.png.20d83a5df74dc33788e955119a13e1c5.png

 

831755848_Screenshot2019-02-08at15_48_29.thumb.png.4c1ac9e00f6bef412ecc46ea668bf479.png

 

In combination with Whatevergreen.kext, the three DP1.4 ports and the single HDMI port of the Sapphire Radeon VII also have been properly implemented in form of just four Radeon frame buffers + the respective HDAU device. 

 

1238642935_Screenshot2019-02-08at15_46_58.thumb.png.a95439f2795a5a9effabcf0563bd63a0.png

 

All four ports were fully functional, including display HotPlug and multi-monitor support. Also sleep/wake worked absolutely flawless. 

The UI worked fluid without an issues or lag and also video playback fully worked as expected. 

Now the bad news at least for macOS 10.14.3 (18D42) and macOS 10.14.3 SU (18D109):

All benchmark tools available, i.e. Cinebench OpenGL, Geekbench OpenGL and Metal, LuXMark OpenGL or Heaven and Valley were not able to find any GPU supporting OpenGL or Metal. 

Thus, unfortunately under the above mentioned macOS versions, the Radeon VII seems yet not to support OpenGL or Metal so far.

Thought that this recent findings also might be interesting for others .. :wink_anim:

Sapphire Radeon VII now fully UEFI compatible!

 

IMG_3107.jpg.42c6486a90582fcddad04b61d46a9408.jpg

 

At first place I should highlight some important correction. My first tests and results concerning the Radeon VII did not base on a MSI but Sapphire Radeon VII. I simply confused the brand my friend employed on his system. I therefore already correct my initial lapsus in my former post above up to my best knowledge..  image.gif.9ab16978bd6883677c6071f9890c66a8.gif:lol:

This morning, @DSM2  pointed me to some approach recently discussed in the German Hackintosh forum: 

@Mork vom Ork recently 
provided a link for a windows tool developed by ASRock, which implements a hybrid firmware on the ASRock Radeon VII. Unfortunately, ASRX7_16G190201.exe did not work in my case with the Sapphire Radeon VII.

However, @CMMChris
 extracted the VBIOS from ASRX7_16G190201.exe by means of a hex editor and provided the resulting BIOS ROM radeon-vii-uefi.rom in his respective post in the German Hackintosh Forum. 

After saving the original Firware of the Sapphire Radeon VII with Winflash.exe (admin permissions) of AMD/ATI ATIFlash 2.84 under Windows 10, I subsequently flashed the Sapphire Radeon VII with radeon-vii-uefi.rom without any issues.


Subsequently I disabled CSM in the BIOS of my ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe and successfully booted my system with the Sapphire Radeon VII and new ASRock hybrid firmware..

Legacy only problem of Radeon VII fully removed! :headbang:

I guess that the latter approach should work for any Radeon VII.

Enjoy and have fun,

Still having issues with OpenCL and Metal?

 

The entire correct, native VII macOS implementation is still missing.. At present the VII is recognised and implemented Vega like, without hardware acceleration.

KGP, 

 

Fantastic write up and guide! I just upgraded from a dual e5 xeon hackintosh running Mojave to skylake-x

 

My system is as follows

EVGA x299 Micro

I7-7800X

8gb 2800 g.skill ddr4 (more to come)

Powercolor Vega56 8gb

250gb Samsung Evo 970 NVMe

 

Ive used your respective EFI folder and created new serial numbers for smbios. Ive read the guide a couple times maybe I'm missing something but I cant even boot at all just hangs at End RandomSeed.

 

Ive searched google for answers on this and have tried everything suggested. So I must be missing something from your write up. I did reenable the MSR patch as far as ive read evga doesnt unlock it. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks Epnk82

Did you implement a properly adopted TSCAdjustReset.kext under /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Others? Maybe you also need boot flag npci=0x2000?

 

Disable MSR lock in BIOS settings! If you do not disable MSR lock in BIOS settings, you must check “KernelPm” and enable  xcpm core scope kernel patch in config.plist for being able to boot your system. With disabled MSR lock, “KernelPm” and xcpm core scope kernel patch can remain disabled. 

 

Everything detailed above clearly outlined in my guide and absolutely nevessary for succesful system boot! 

 

Good luck,

 

KGP

      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:

      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)
