HS Install problems on Intel S2600CW

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



Given the following details, does anyone have any ideas to try or things to investigate to help get HS booting on my server motherboard? I have done a number of successful hackintosh installs but this particular board is giving me a run for my money.


I am currently stuck at a reboot after the line "pci configuration begin" with verbose mode enabled


Motherboard: Intel C2600CW https://www.intel.ca/content/www/ca/en/products/servers/server-boards/server-board-s2600cw/s2600cw2r.html

CPU: 2x Xeon 2690v3 


GPU: Quadro K5200

SSD: SATA Samsung 960 PRO's


- windows server 2016/windows 10/ubuntu 18.04 all work fine.

- Vanilla HS + Clover (no [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url])

- Tried with ncpi=0x2000 and npci=0x3000

- tried with cpus=1

- tried removing memory down to 64gb

- Tried with different OsxAptioFixDrv versions

  - some warned slide values not usable

  - tried using slide calculators to no effect, slide=8096 got rid of unusable slide issues, but pci config begin issue persists

- Tried with and without quadro k5200 installed


Is there anything else I can check/test?


Any help would be much appreciated!

Absolutely, here you are.

Your Clover config appears incorrect and very incomplete. And there are no injected kexts in the Clover kexts folder either. Where did you install your add-on kexts, like the necessary FakeSMC for instance?

Wow that was embarrassing. I have since doubled down on research and re-checking all my steps, and have got it working! A bunch of issues to resolve (i350 Nic drivers, power management, nvme drivers) but it boots. Thanks for your help/rubber ducking my config!
