Hi all, I'd like to check if what I have done is ok: I enabled my internal GPU from my UEFI settings and I got quick look and preview working. However, the iGPU doesn't show on System Information. Under the graphics section, only my RX 580 is shown. I did not change my SMBIOS or installed any kext. Have done correctly? Thanks!

Are you sure it’s enabled then? What’s your iGPU?

If you're using WhateverGreen, I think that will enable it without showing it in Graphics in your System Report.

 

Now, let's take them one by one:
1. Please, add your hardware information to your signture so we know what are we talking about. :) 

2. If you're using a MacPro SMBIOS, that will not show any IGPU since they've got none.

3. To make sure the iGPU is enabled on the OS side, as well, you need two things added to your config.plist, for as far as I know:

  • InjectIntel (should be checked)
  • correct ig-platform-id for your iGPU

So, in order to see what we are dealing with, we need to know which hardware are you using (aside from the RX 580 which was obvious). And which SMBIOS. If the iGPU is enabled in BIOS, and everything else is configured correctly on system side, it should show up.

I am not using WhateverGreen. 

1. I added my HW info to my signature!

2. My SMBIOS is iMac 18,1

3. Should I add those things since I have already solved the problem?

 

Thanks!

You mean the QuickLook/Preview issues? Yeah, the problem is fixed, but if I go this right, you want to have your iGPU displayed in System Report -> Graphics, right?

 

Which, I think is more of a cosmetic issue than anything else. :)) But it is displayed in my case. So...we can try InjectIntel and ig-platform-id 0x3E910003 or 0x3E920003 or 0x3E9B0007 and see if it makes any difference.

You can use Clover Configurator for a more user-friendly approach.

If it doesn't bother you that much, you can just as well ignore it. :)) But looks like something is not recognised.

Yeah, as I said, WhateverGreen will do pretty much the same thing as the things I mentioned at point 3 above. But since reloadedhead doesn't use WhateverGreen, another way is by injecting Intel and adding ig-platform-id.

injecting Intel and adding ig-platform-id can also works fine. i tested it

Are you using FV2?

If not your drivers64uefi folder can be trimmed.....a lot.

Which smbios are you using now?

No, I don't use FV2, so you sugest that i can remove some drivers form drivers64uefi?
Now i'm using SMBIOS - iMac14,2

Yes you can remove quite a few.

I’ll update this post with a screenshot of my drivers64uefi folder non FV2.

Also can you post a screenshot of what it looks like when you try preview.

Do you have video acceleration? Cause it kinda looks like you don't... Also, that is not the Preview issue this thread is meant to fix. The Preview issue of this thread (but that's not your issue, for as far as I can see), is that when trying to open a jpeg file, the window will display a loading animation and freeze in that state. You don't get a picture at all. But as i said, this is not the issue in your case, for as far as I can see.

 

 

EDIT:

Are you using a patched SSDT/DSDT? If you do, please, remove them before attempting any of this.

 

Also, for as far as I could read online, in order to get Full QE/CI, you need to patch a few things, which looks like you didn't. So...as I was suspecting, you don't have full acceleration. And that issue seems to be the result of that.

 

You can try the attached config plist and see if it makes any difference.

 

I'm not sure if WhateverGreen is supposed to fix this...but it kinda looks like it doesn't help much here. Ooor...maybe this is a different issue specific to Mojave. But judging by the stuttering I saw in your video, my guess is that there is something wrong with your video acceleration. Also, it shows that your issue has nothing to do with the Preview issue that this thread is aiming to fix. :) But that's a different story.

 

I would recommend leaving the attached config's name "config2.plist", exactly as it is right now. Just in case there's something I messed up and you can't boot anymore. Also, I'm not sure that IntelGFX 0x04128086 is the correct value for you. I'd say, IF (and ONLY IF) you're planning on going this route, maybe try 0x0a168086 instead.

 

But first, try without anything, since the patches I added in Kernel and Kext Patches should (at least in theory) take care of that anyway. But as I said, if you wanna go that route, maybe try 0x0a168086 instead in Devices -> IntelGFX.

 

Now, how to use the config2.plist I gave you without replacing the original config. Well, just copy-paste it in Clover/config2.plist, and upon booting up, in Clover UI, go to Options -> Configs and select Config2.plist. Then Return, and boot normally by selecting your boot partition.

 

This way, you still keep your default config.plist, should you need it. And you can still try the changes I proposed in this new config without messing up your system.

 

Also, I left ig-platform-id 0x0D220003 in Graphics, but...I'm not sure that's correct either... I could be wrong though.

 

You can try to see if you get your iGPU properly recognised in About this Mac -> System Report -> Graphics/Displays. Maybe post a screenshot here, as well, if you can.

 

Also, as a side note, I would recommend getting a dedicat GPU, if possible. Even some older ones like the Nvidia GTX 650 are miles better than the on-board graphics. And they're very cheap. Not to mention, the GTX 650 works OOB including in Mojave.

Thank you for your help and commitment :)

Unfortunately, your system did not want to run with your config. It started when I turned off the Intel Inject, but there is absolutely no graphics acceleration.

On my config, regardless of whether I type IntelGFX, ig-platform-id, Inject Intel, the graphics work, but there is still a problem with the preview.

You probably are right that the graphics do not work 100%. According to what guide should I try to patch 4400 in Mojave?

Unfortunately I have no place on the GPU in my case, so I have to run Intel :((((((((

No idea.... I'm not sure it can be fixed... Especially if it worked fine with High Sierra. For as far as I can tell, it seems to be something specific to Mojave.

 

Anyway, which case are you using? Even really small ones still allow for a PCI graphics card... And the GTX 650 is small anyway. I'm sorry, I'm not sure how to fix this. What I can tell you is that you're definitely not the only one with this issue on the Intel HD 4400 and Mojave.

I use thermaltake core v1 and miniitx board and I have one PCIe slot in which I have a wifi adapter card. I would have to change the MOBO and case. then I could use the GPU. 

Maybe it would be good with another CPU? with HD4600, e.g. i3-43XX ??

Yeah...since that slot is already filled, and since this is a Mini-ITX board...not much you can do. That's one reason I hate Mini-ITX boards. You're just too limited. Full ATX is the best choice in my opinion. But yes, that also means more space taken by your computer. 

 

Also, it would have helped if the motherboard itself had built-in WiFi. But...unfortunately the ASUS H81i Plus does not. 

 

I'm using an i5-4570, supported OOB, with Intel Graphics HD 4600. And it does work in Mojave with only Inject Intel and ig-platform-id 0x0D220003. But...to advise you to buy another CPU just for this...would be madness.

 

If you want, a cheaper upgrade would probably be the motherboard itself. Take something with WiFI built-in so you don't waste the PCI slot with expansion cards. Like this H97N board form Gigabyte, for example. BUT keep in mind if you want wifi working on MacOS, you might wanna do a little bit of research and see if that chipset is supported or not. I've never had a WIFI-enabled motherboard. I'm not sure I need one for a Desktop computer... But if you really want WiFi and also a small chassis, that's another way to do it.

 

Another combo is indeed the motherboard and case, going Full/Standard ATX, or even Micro-ATX (2 PCI slots).

 

But my recommendation remains: you better get a dedicated GPU regardless which CPU are you using. Even if it's an older one (like the GTX 650 I mentioned before). As long as it's supported OOB, you're good to go. It's literally plug&play. No Inject Nvidia necessary, no Nvidia drivers necessary. It literally just works. And it will still perform better than any integrated GPU.

 

I don't know, you need to do your research, your calculations, see which possible combo works best for you. But...until then, this is not the topic for fixing that specific issue you're having. It is a Preview issue. But it's not this specific issue that this thread is meant to fix. Your Preview works fine in terms of opening photos. In the sense that it doesn't hang when doing that. The problem is somewhere else.

Hello,

 

Hackintosh noob, here!  I'm almost there with my first Hackintosh, and this is something that seems to not want to be fixed, hopefully you experts will know how! 

 

Hardware is:

 

8700k

Rog Strix Z390-i

Gigabyte RX560

970 Pro M.2

 

Running Mojave 10.14

 

My issue is that when I try to view images, the preview app tries to open the image and it just hangs there and has to be force quit.  So far, I have tried changing to 18,3 iMac, that seems to be the best fit all round, I have added the noVPAjpeg.kext and this had no effect at all.

 

Is there anything else I can do to fix this?  Thanks.

      I was inspired by @duduclx post for installing El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6410, so I decided to install Mojave 10.14.5.  Everything works perfectly except for sleep.  I'm starting this thread hoping to help others install Mojave on their E6410s and to diagnose and resolve the sleep issue.  This thread is not currently intended to be an installation guide and is better suited to the intermediate/advanced hackintosher.  Eventually, it may evolve into a guide.
       
      I started with this thread (Many thanks, @duduclx !!!) and ended up with the system captured in the attached files.  The keys were to change the LPCB._DSM.Name to "3b09" and remove all CLOVER configs not necessary for Mojave, plus some other items mentioned below.
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) MacOS: Mojave 10.14.5 (APFS) (Patched with DosDude Mojave Patcher 1.3.3) MacModel: MacBookPro 6,2 (LPCB._DSM.Name "pci8086,3b09") Kexts: Lilu 1.3.6, VoodooHDA 2.9.2, AirportBrcmFixup 2.0.0, IntelMausiEthernet 2.4.1d1, ACPIBatteryManager 1.90.1, BrcmPatchRam2.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, VoodooPS2Controller (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad" version - release 5, not the original version), USBInjectAll (with custom SSDT-UIAC) Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (with AirportBrcmFixup.kext) CLOVER (Legacy): R4961  
      Configuration items that may be different from what you have seen in other E6410 configurations
      LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09" AND "name", "pci8086,3b09" for native Nehalem power management with MacBookPro 6,2 ECDV renamed to EC so that AppleBusPowerController loads AGP.VID._DSM patched with device-id "0a29" so that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement loads  No CLOVER Generate P or Generate C States (with the correct LPCB._DSM and MacBookPro 6,2, these CLOVER options are unnecessary for this architecture and only limit max multiplier and reduce number of P states) DSDT patched to include HDAU device (device-id 0x0be3)  
      What is NOT working:
      Sleep (display goes blank, but power light stays on.  System cannot wake and must be forced off with power button) Display brightness can be controlled with keyboard keys, but cannot be controlled with slider in Display settings.  The slider appears in Display settings (because of the backlight DSDT injection in AGP.VID._DSM), but the slider doesn't work (yet).  Haven't spent time to figure this out, but would love help. Graphics Power Management - AGPM loads (because 10de,0a29 device is injected), but there's no evidence that 3100m frequency and voltage is changing.
        What is NOT tested:
      SD Card Slot Smartcard Reader eSata (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Firewire Port (it does appear in the Network settings, just haven't tried it) Microphone Jack PC Card Slot (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Camera (I have this disabled in my BIOS)  
      What IS working:
      Everything else not mentioned above.   Speedstep/CPUPowerManagement is perfect, system temps are low, CPU multiplier operates as expected, battery life is long Shutdown is fast Display/graphics acceleration is perfect (thanks to DosDude's Mojave patcher) Brightness (adjusted with brightness keys on keyboard) works perfectly Battery Manager works (battery status is displayed in menu bar) simply by installing ACPIBatterManager.kext. Wi-Fi (after changing to Broadcom BCM94352HMB and installing AirportBrcmFixup.kext) Audio (volume adjustable, volume indicator appears in menu bar).  Switched to VoodooHDA from AppleALC after AppleALC caused slow boot due to "IOHDACodecFunction timeout." Ethernet port (with IntelMausiEthernet.kext) Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth (with BrcmPatchRam2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext) Optical Drive External VGA (with corrected NVCAP.  Need NVCAP 04000000 00000100 0E000000 00000007 00000000 (credit: @PlutoDelic) for working external VGA display. Headphone jack Display Port (tested using DP > HDMI adapter)  
      Known issues and their solutions
      AAPL,clock-id and device_type do not appear in IORegistry for EHC1.  Solution is to use CLOVER on-the-fly patching/fixing/renaming for EHC1 and EHC2.  This has been completed and tested, but does not fix the sleep behavior.  This fix is not reflected in the attached files. ALPS trackpad performance is not good with the "standard" VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I initially used.  Switching to the "Refined ALPS TouchPad driver" is a big improvement.  I've implemented and tested this on my system.  The ALPS version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext mixes up a few keys.  Need to switch the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) and change keyboard type to ISO European.  The updated VoodooPS2Controller.kext is not reflected in the attached files. This proposed configuration uses an injected device-id (10de,0a29) for NVidia 3100m to get AGPM to load.  While I haven't observed any performance differences, a better approach may be to inject AGPM properties for device 10de,0a6c (the actual device-id for the 3100m).  This AGPM method is discussed later in this thread.  I have briefly tested this "FakeSMC.kext method" for injecting AGPM attributes without any noticeable changes in laptop/graphics behavior and have not updated attached files to reflect this change. IOHWControl is not loaded under AGPM (Should be AGP > VID > NVDA,Display-A@0 > NVDATesla > AGPM > gpu-control > IOHWControl as viewed in IORegistryExplorer).  It is loaded on a real MacBookPro6,2 running Mojave and is loaded on this Dell Latitude E6410 running High Sierra.  If I "Inject NVidia" via CLOVER, IOHWControl loads properly.  I have made this change and am testing it on my system, but have not updated the attached configuration files. The Dell Latitude DSDT (BIOS A17) has a bug in Method (GNOT).  In the method, the expression  If (LOr (LGreater (OSYS, 0x07D0), LLess (OSYS, 0x07D6))) always evaluates to TRUE, so the patched DSDT has no dependency on the value of OSYS.  I suspect that LOr should be replaced with LAnd, so that this expression is TRUE for variants of Windows 2001 and False for any other OS.  While this may have no affect on MacOS, it makes one wonder how such an obvious bug made it through Dell QA and is still present in BIOS A17.  Also makes one wonder whether the sleep problem (which no one has solved) was fixed in Windows to address another DSDT bug. The DSDT patch that duduclx refers to as "Intel GMA Ready" in his El Capitan Guide is not applied correctly to the DSDT attached to this post.  Somehow, the contents of patched _DSM are located in the PCI0.VID device instead of in Method (_DSM) within the PCI0.VID device.  MaciASL didn't complain about this, so it went unnoticed, but it doesn't appear to have had any affect.  I have completely removed this "Intel GMA Ready" patch from my DSDT since it is not necessary for Dell Latitude E6410's with NVidia 3100m, but have not updated the attached DSDT. The assigned value of ACOS in the DSDT is conditional on the operating system.  There is no condition for "Darwin."  The solution is to add a condition for "Darwin" (making it equivalent to one of the defined operating systems (e.g. Linux, Win7, etc), analogous to the assignment of OSYS.  I made this change in my DSDT (not yet reflected in the attached files), but have not observed any behavioral differences (sleep or otherwise).  EDIT: Another way to handle this might be to override _OSI with XOSI (defined in a custom SSDT).  Still learning about XOSI and haven't yet drawn a conclusion.  I'm currently experimenting with ACOS and OSYS equivalent to Win7 and Linux (manually patched in my DSDT which has not yet been updated as a new attachment to this post). The portType of the Internal Bluetooth device is portType=0 which, according to Rehabman's comments in SSDT-UIAC-All.dsl, is an external USB 2 port.  I believe that this should be an internal USB port (portType=2).  My custom SSDT-UIAC.dsl is wrong.  I just learned through trial and error that the HUB1 and HUB2 definitions in Rehabman's SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl apply to the ports on the EHCx USB hubs.  The solution is to include the HUB1 definition in SSDT-UIAC.dsl and change portType to 2 for HP15.  I have not attached an updated SSDT-UIAC.dsl to this first post, but my current EFI includes an updated SSDT-UIAC.dsl with ports HP15, 16 17 and 18 set to internal (portType = 2).  This change doesn't appear to affect/fix sleep, but it may prevent instant wake if we get sleep working.  
      Brief Installation Guide (for the experienced Hackintosher):
      Follow duduclx's guide for BIOS config Create your MacOS installer USB (Use DosDude's Mojave Patcher for Mojave) (start with High Sierra and not Mojave if you're new to hackintosh). Install CLOVER (Legacy) on installer USB using attached EFI as your guide for patched ACPI, kexts and config.plist Install MacOS to your SSD.  When you run DosDude's Mojave Patcher, DO NOT install LegacyUSBInjector.kext - you're going to use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext. Install the following kexts in /Library/Extensions:  ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakeSMC.kext, FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext, FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad driver," not the original) Switch Command and Option keys to compensate for Refined ALPS driver issue (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys).  Also change keyboard type to ISO European to fix the [ ` ~ ] key (to the left of the "1" (one) key. Install VoodooHDA Install HWMonitor application

      Clover r4989 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4989 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4989-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      I have installed MacOS Mojave successfully. But have some serious issue with graphics and apps freezing.
      1. Almost every apps freeze at some point. even System Preference freeze whenever click on any option. then either have to quit or force quit.
      2. When using any apps or loading something, that apps window stuck on screen, it doesn't go even after Killing the apps. Also when write something in Terminal, text not appear on terminal screen. if click inside the Terminal again, then all text show up suddenly. A lot of others weird problem happen.
      Also most time when booting, apple logo and loading bar stuck on screen. If write password blindly and press Enter, then Desktop screen comes.
      3. Sometimes machine turn off directly and then restart itself.

      My laptop configuration:
      Model: ASUS X510UQ
      CPU: Core i5-7200U
      GPU: Intel HD620 - 1920x1080 + Nvdia 940MX
      Chipset: Intel(R) Xeon(R) E3 - 1200
      Storage: 120GB SATA SSD + 1TB HDD

      @ I'm Using CLover Bootloader
      @ Disabled Nvdia with SSDT patching.
      @ System Updated to 10.14.5

      hi guys,
      I'm beginner to hackintosh and i planning to buy new rig , but i don't know which of this two case is better for mojave
      case 1:
      CPU: i5 8400,
      Motherboard: Gigabyte h310m-s2h
      GPU: Intel uhd 630
      ram: hyperx fury 8gb 2400 ddr4
      ssd: adata su650 240gb

      case 2: 
      CPU: i5 6600,
      motherboard: asus z170-a
      GPU: hd 530
      ram: hyperx fury 8gb 2400 ddr4
      ssd: adata su650 240gb
       
      which is better ?
      my priority is first case because of cpu but i had heard h310 motherboard not working with hackintosh and I can't buy b360 or better , because it's too expensive in my country.
      My monitor just have vga , can I use HDMI to vga adaptor ? is it work ? or does it need to upgrade ?

      Thanks for your help.
