Hi Antonio,

 

Thanks about your note guide.

 

1. Done - have NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in my EFI/Clover/kexts/Other. (is this the same as "turn on" ?)

2. Done - copied original file to safe

3. FAIL - Can't open perl script "AICPMPatch.pl": No such file or directory.  

    => Do I have to install Perl or do I have to download that script from somewhere ? Or is this script in what directory ? Trying to run from home dir.

For last questions about PM, I think , (only I think) you don't need use NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to stop PM and boot without KP during update (or install) mojave,  until patch AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Enabling aicpm patch in clover should be enough. To clarify:

 

No pm patched, aicpm clover on--> no KP

No pm patched, aicpm clover off --> KP

pm patched , aicpm clover off ---> no KP . In fact, with PM patched , it doesn't matter if aicpm clover patch is on or off. That is because I recommended in the guide keep it always activated, to cover both cases.

 

But again, I don't know if it's an specific mojave problem. It just a note.

 

About PM patching process, indeed, if you read the guide, every Os version has its own links to original patches guides. This is for 10.12 and this is for 10.13 (note the title) but I think it's only for the step n.1 , for v1 cpus , and this not your case. The step n2, has been the same patch since el capitan. So I think it should work.  To apply it, after download the patch (it's included in the stuff folder), you have to go in the terminal window where the file was downloaded ( cd command) and then execute the perl command. You don't need anything else. It's explained in the guide! ;)

 

And don't forget check bios options. There is one option to enable/disable the PM from the bios. It's explained in the guide also. All is explained in the guide!!  .. always !! :whistle::lol:

 

The rest of steps are important,of course the ssdtPRGen.sh step.

Let us know how was going.

Hi,

Tried on Saturday and messed my system... :( Noob in action !

 

The ssdtPRGen.sh didn't accept the mode custom parameter and also didn't like the -cpus parameter, complained about them and stopped.... Well I gave just the ssdtPRGen.sh and it found wrong values from somewhere and probably thought that I have only 1 CPU, tried to cancel and answered to every question with N. After that when Booting, had Mojave starting problem. So I installed the hole Mojave again, no problem as No software installed yet and also not "registered" my Hackintosh with Apple (No AppleID yet), I want to get my desktop work Ok first.

User "Xeon" from my CPU's.

 

And after Re-Installing Mojave and Updating it (1.55GB) I took 1:1 disk copy in HDU Dock (SSD -> HDU) so IF I mess again, I can just make "restore" with my 1:1 disk copy in dock again...

 

So, Now tried again...

-Clover AICPM patch activated, marked that

-Removed NullCPUPowerManagement.kext totally

-BackUpped that AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

-Actually BackUpped the hole /S/L/E directory  :)

 

Followed the 10.13 Ivy Bridge E PM Guide, from step 2 (As I have 2 x E5-2695 V2, Ivy Bridge EP)

-So DL that "AICPMPatch"

 

-Executed the script

sudo perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement --patch

 

Output:

wrmsr ignored: 0

 

10.13 Ivy Bridge E PM Guide, from step 3

-DL that "LegacyX86PlatformPlugin.kext.zip", automatically extracted and copied it to /S/L/E as guided

 

10.13 Ivy Bridge E PM Guide, from step 4

-DL that "install.command.zip", automatically extracted (??) 

THIS PART DIFFERS FROM "own notes" help guide received in help replies in above, skipped everything from point 5. onwards) !!

As the 10.13 PM guide doesn't say what to do with this "install.command" I just took the leap of fate and executed the command :unsure:

Well it actually started this ssdtPRGen script and did automatically something (??)

Thats why I skipped all those steps received in previous help replies as I "think" this did the same automatically ??

 

Followed the 10.13 Ivy Bridge E PM Guide, from step 5

-DL that  InsanelyRepairPermission and executed that, got error that -rt is invalid Volume. Was unable to "touch".

So I gave that command only with -r parameter:

sudo ./InsanelyRepairPermission -r /Volumes/Mojave_SSD

It went all those files through and "repaired" permissions, I don't put the Output here, too long file list...

 

And that's it.

 

So I didn't do that Clover/F€ dump and I didn't copy any ssd or .aml files from anywhere to anywhere, not even to my /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/... And didn't use that MaciASL thing (?). One reason is that I didn't see any /Users/Xeon/Library/... directory at all in Mojave like you mention in HS Guide (is something changed in Mojave?). I do see /Mojave_SSD/Library/... and Mojave_SSD/System/Library/...

 

I took the risk and loaded your ready compiled AppleIntelInfo.kext from Your Stuff folder (as I don't have Xcode installed, No AppleId yet to download it or how to use it - Noob). And tested with it like you mention in this HS Guide PM part.

 

I DL kext "in", Opened Safari and watched some videos from youtube. And then checked the Info "cat ..."

So I think it's all OK now for CPU PM to work ??

I don't know does the system PM now know that I have double Xeons or did it only do this for one CPU ?

"About this Mac" tells anyway correct -> "Processor 2 x 2,39Ghz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5"

 

OR Did I mess again, Noob failure and I have to take this CPU PM creation again ?

 

I still do have that ssdt file as text copy (just in case, attached) as this "install.command" opened it to me...

 

I also noticed that what ever the ssdtPRGen.sh script did - meaning creating a new patched ssd-file, I have NO IDEA where it saved that ?? I also don't have any /Users/Xeon/ssdtPRGen directory or anything related to that name... Weird, is it Mojave (different than HS) or me (Noob) ?

 

I will now reboot my Hackintosh and do the AppleIntelInfo.kext "test" again to be sure...

That’s all. Ignore step 4 and step 5 from the link.

 

 

 

So, when yo repeat the proccess, just stop in step 3 . 

 

D-

 

After step 3 , the important is repair permissions and rebuild cache. This is the only step that can ruin your system, (and reinstall , or recover your system) because we are modifying S/L/E. The rest of the guide only concerns to clover, and clover folder, and it can be easily fixed in error case.

I don't use InsanelyRepair Permissions. I don't know that error. Maybe it has problems with Mojave. I use other utlity (I'm not in front of my computer now.). I'm outdated whit this, sorry.  I don't know it you could reboot ok after that. Try to search a 100% secure method to repair permissions /rebuild cache in Mojave and test it before of make any modifications to any internal kext. When you get it, you will complete successfully this part of the PM guide. 

 

 

E-

 

Now, the ssdtPRGen script. First, In your first output you have a clear error, mentioned in the guide: (No ACPI Processor declarations found in the DSDT!)

The rest of the next problems doesn't matter now. As a general advice, don't go ahead with the guide with errors in previous steps. It will give you no sense errors and it will drive you crazy.  So , focus in fix that. In the guide is described how do it but you ...

Recheck the guide. You have to do clover/f4 dump, grab the ssdt dumped, copy it to desktop, rename it,  and run the script.  

 

from the guide:

 

On 10/7/2018 at 8:56 PM, bilbo said:
  • So: If you didn´t it , you need extract the ssdt again. Reboot and press F4 in clover boot screen.

You will find the acpi tables in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/ORIGINAL.

  • Copy the SSDT1-cpu-def file and the apic.aml file to desktop. Rename the ssdt to dsdt.aml. It’s fake, of course. We will cheat ssdtPRgen. Now, we are ready to generate the script. Delete them when you finished the process.

 

About where is the ssdt generated by ssdtPRgen, yes , it is in library folder of your user, but it's hidden by default since El Capitan. It's easy to fix. When you can access to your home library folder:

 

from the guide:

 

On 10/7/2018 at 8:56 PM, bilbo said:

The ssdt is in /YourUser/Library/ssdtPRGen/. Delete the ssdt.dsl version. Copy the ssdt.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.

 

As you can see , all is described in the guide.

 

F-

I don't understand this:

 

On 12/1/2019 at 1:22 PM, Ragimund (HP Z820) said:

I DL kext "in", Opened Safari and watched some videos from youtube. And then checked the Info "cat ..."

 

That is for AppleIntelInfo.kext is used. You don't need another kext. In the guide is described how use it. Anyway, by your output log, of course, you don't have PM  :D

 

 

So, in short:

 

-don't follow steps 4 and 5 of the patches linked for patch kexts

 

-make sure to fix permissions / rebuild cache succesfuly for Mojave.

 

-follow the miniguide to fix "No ACPI Processor declarations found in the DSDT!" and get a right ssdt generated by ssdtPRgen. 

 

Then, you will be able to follow the rest of PM guide and see how is going.

Ok, Thx bilbo for your help and clear mistakes points that I made,

helped Noob a lot...

 

Well, Noob learns things by doing multiple times :D

 

I will try again with better luck this time...

 

That C point was from previous hint & help from Antonio.clb " I usually follow bilbo's guide, here's a step-by-step from my own notes: "

As ddstPRGen did something that looked for me the same thing I skipped part 5 from his guide..

 

But I will now stick with your guide, and get back when done with Outputs.

Probably in weekend if I don't have some late evening time before...

If i wanted to follow this guide, from scratch, for mojave for a z620, what changes would I make? Just an updated clover? If I need to add a certain kext not in the guide, where would I find it?

Everything , except the kexts specific of this thread: usb3 ( mXHCD.kext ) , and  LSI 2308internal SAScontroller driver (AstekFusion2Family and AstekFusion2Adapter kexts).

 

Clover, of course, and the rest of kexts. I posted their original links to go to original projects. Read with attention compatibles specifications, updates, info... That is what I did to update the guide form Sierra to High Sierra.

 

I have my doubts about PM section ( AppleIntelInfo.kext , specific patches...). Ragimund is testig.

Hi All,

 

Followed you HS Guide Part V: Power Management, and got my system messed.

Doesn't boot any more :(

 

Rebooted, Clover Menu, Boot from Mojave_SSD

Few lines in Verbose list and then error...

 

OsxAptioFix3Drv: Error  ExitBootServices() 2nd Try = Status: Invalid Parameter

 

Tries 3 times with 10sec delay, every time same error msg and then system Frozen.

 

I documented everything I did into text file and it's of course inside the non booting system, writing this from my girlfriends Win laptop   :help:

 

I'm trying to tell again what I did...

 

-Booted System

-Removed the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext away from EFI/Clover/kext/Other

-Marked in Clover that ACPI "Type..." something active in right bottom corner (don't remember actual name anymore) and saved config.plist again.

 

 

25.

-Skipped, I know I run base speed

 

26.

-Used your AppleIntelInfo.kext - worked before already. Rights given OK.

 

27.

-Skipped

 

28. 

-Backed Up AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from /S/L/E and also copied it to Desktop.

-Patched with AICPMPatch OK. No Deltas in second check.

-Downloaded and copied Legacyx86PlattformPlugin.kext to /S/L/E.  NOT in EFI/Clover...

-Ignored steps 4 & 5 from Guide "Sandy Bridge-E & Ivy Bridge-E Power management 10.13 (Appstore release)" like you advised.

 

-"Rebuild permissions and cache"!! Have no idea how to do, no commands in your guide. So I used Google "Rebuild permissions and cache in Mojave" and found from first result (Travelertechie.com) following commands :

 

Repair permissions in /S/L/E (System/Library/Extensions) and /L/E (Library/Extensions) folders


Type each of the following commands (separately) in Terminal:

sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E*

sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E*

sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E*

sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E* 

 

Rebuild Kext Cache

Type the following command in the Terminal:

sudo kextcache -i / 

Restart your computer for the repairs to take effect.

 

Rebooted like in your Guide before step 29. But now I got this error and doesn't boot anymore...

 

How to fix ? :help:

 

What did I understood wrong this time ?

I really sorry hear that. I don't think you did anything wrong. It seems to be only a permissions/cache problem. I didn't write any specific in the guide because there is several utilities or ways to do that (apps, commands...etc). I'm not sure what is the 100% best method for every OS version , and everyone has its specific preference.

I use Kext utility . It rebuilds cache and rebuild cache automatically just launching the app. It works 100% for sierra and High sierra. This is always needed after modify any kext of S/L/E, or install any new kext.

 

And now, I'm realizing that maybe there is something not included in the guide, thinking in noob people. Never copy manually a kext into S/L/E (no at least using finder drag and drop). That is because this kind of utilities are used too. For instance , with this tool, the way is: Launch the app, wait to finish complete to auto repair and auto rebuild. Drag the kext to the window app. It will install it, and again, it will repair/rebuild.

 

Again, I'm not sure if this is the best method for mojave. Maybe other users can clarify this.

 

Another important thing:

2 hours ago, Ragimund (HP Z820) said:

-Marked in Clover that ACPI "Type..." something active in right bottom corner

It's important to know what kind of patches are you applying. I don't know what patch are you talking about. The right patch that I mentioned was AppeIntelCPUPM in "kernel and kextpatches" cloverconfigurator section. A wrong patch selected can give you a kernel panic. See the guide and screen captures.

 

 

Now.. to try to recover the system without re-install... to be honest, it has been always difficult to me. There is an special boot - single user- to boot under text mode and write the right commands to repair/rebuild . But I'm afraid that the KP will not let you boot normally to reach this special boot. I need some time to check how do it exactly. I always end up reinstalling after an error after install a kext in S/L/E. Before of reinstall, maybe you can ask for help for mojave and how recover a system after a permissions/cache problem.

Thx Bilbo,

 

Don't do extra work there. I took a 1:1 disk copy from my SSD in Docking station "just in case" as I thought that with Noobs luck I will do still something wrong.

 

I will make a new Mojave in no time in Docking station again from my "backup". About 20-25min.

 

So that was one mistake that I made at least, copied that kext directly with Finder.

I have to download that "kext utility" and find out how to use it...

 

And the second is that I probably understood wrong that "aicpm clover on" thing that you mention. So it's not a thing that you can cross mark "tickle" on/off in ACPI page on Clover. It's actually a KERNEL page patch - that I think I don't have at all. 

 

As I sais, I'm a Noob - I managed to get by my own to Install Mojave and Boot from SSD but plenty of staff was not working and needed "patching" and that's not my expertises.

But in this same discussion topic was also another HP Z820 owner and he gave his EFI USB & EFI HDU files (patched). But he had different CPU (less cores (10) and probably only 1 CPU, as I have 12 and 2 CPU's). Everything else seems to work Ok (not sure yet about USB3.0 speed). Only thing is that NO CPU PM and on base stock speed 2,4Ghz.  The helper had the same issue, no working PM and base speed (his was 2,8Ghz)

 

So, I will try again...

It's the only way to learn.

My GF is asking "Why you want Apple as computer was working Ok in Windows? and you have now tried over 3 weeks already and it doesn't work" 

 

Well, dear... :unsure:

As I wrote it, it's easy. The point is to know how deal with mojave.

The point of this option, is boot before of patch PM (without any nullpowerm... kext). After the patch, it's unnecessary, although it can be still enabled. I recommend keep it enable, just in case a wrong patch or not take care to share or copy the config plist at any point of the process.  It's enough explained in the guide. The important of your comment is not enable another unrelated option

PM is the only thing can't be shared via folder clover copy-pasting

So, I will try again...

It's the only way to learn.

My GF is asking "Why you want Apple as computer was working Ok in Windows? and you have now tried over 3 weeks already and it doesn't work"  

 

In a past thread, we spoke about the number of re-install, tests, reboots . Uncountable. Even I was afraid to break the computer reboot after reboot. Some day, during el capitan years , no less than 15 times daily. Welcome to hackintosh :rolleyes:

 

.... women and their cold rationality .... girlfriends knows no hackintosh!! . :D

@bilbo can you post the output of these commands :

 

kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu
kextstat|grep -y x86plat

sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count
sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.mode


thanks !

For last questions about PM, I think , (only I think) you don't need use NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to stop PM and boot without KP during update (or install) mojave,  until patch AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Enabling aicpm patch in clover should be enough. To clarify:

 

No pm patched, aicpm clover on--> no KP

No pm patched, aicpm clover off --> KP

pm patched , aicpm clover off ---> no KP . In fact, with PM patched , it doesn't matter if aicpm clover patch is on or off. That is because I recommended in the guide keep it always activated, to cover both cases.

 

But again, I don't know if it's an specific mojave problem. It just a note.

 

About PM patching process, indeed, if you read the guide, every Os version has its own links to original patches guides. This is for 10.12 and this is for 10.13 (note the title) but I think it's only for the step n.1 , for v1 cpus , and this not your case. The step n2, has been the same patch since el capitan. So I think it should work.  To apply it, after download the patch (it's included in the stuff folder), you have to go in the terminal window where the file was downloaded ( cd command) and then execute the perl command. You don't need anything else. It's explained in the guide! ;)

 

And don't forget check bios options. There is one option to enable/disable the PM from the bios. It's explained in the guide also. All is explained in the guide!!  .. always !! :whistle::lol:

 

The rest of steps are important,of course the ssdtPRGen.sh step.

Let us know how was going.

 

 

Thanks for the tip bilbo! I've enabled it:

image.thumb.png.8d40fd80b800d6344a2fcbdfbca55081.png

I confirm that security update from Mojave 10.14.6 (18G1012) to 10.14.6 (18G2022) has worked flawlessly (3 reboots needed).

No need to repatch AICPM after update. My CPUs multiplier factors oscillates between x12 and x35 according to HWMonitor. All 40 CPUs are showed on activity monitor (Window -> CPU Usage).

I can confirm Mojave works perfectly on my Z620 by following my AICPM patching routine described early and, of course, based on your great work!

Great!

So there is a hope for Noob in Mojave with Z820 :yes:

 

I have now reinstalled Mojave fully from scratch and Updated it, all OK.

 

1:1 Diskcopy didn't work backwards as the disk are not exact the same size :surprised:

The Copy one boots and works Ok (old physical HDU) but doesn't copy 1:1 back to SSD - Docking station feature. 

Well, Lessons learned again...

 

I'm a little nervous to start this PM "patching" again, my changes are 50/50 to success as Noob.

Still thanks to Antonio.clb and his Z620 success with Mojave I feel more lucky now.

Checked with Clover Configurator that I have that AppleIntelCPUPM marked Ok (Thanks for the picture!)

 

So before trying to do actually anything related to PM, I did the what XLNC asked from you, just for interest - IF these say anything to someone

or they can be used for comparing results with bilbo's output (?)

 

kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu

sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count
0

 

sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.mode

And then I used your AppleIntelInfo.kext (from HS Stuff folder) as it worked already Ok before.

-Gave permissions to it 

-sudo kextload AppleIntelInfo.kext

 

Run Geekbench 5 (Trial) CPU Benchmark test, got following results.

 

Single-Core Score.  685

Multi-Core Score.   12231

 

And then checked the outcome of AppleIntelInfo.kext ?

-sudo cat /tmp/AppleIntelInfo.dat

So it does something ? as there are so many values ? OR not :unsure:

Base freq is 2,4Ghz and Turbo is 3,2Ghz for my E5-2695 v2

 

I put my PM patching now "On Hold" to see responses for this post before I try once again to get my PM working...

And thanks to all for your help!

So it does something ? as there are so many values ? OR not :unsure:

Base freq is 2,4Ghz and Turbo is 3,2Ghz for my E5-2695 v2

 

I put my PM patching now "On Hold" to see responses for this post before I try once again to get my PM working...

And thanks to all for your help!

 I'm confused. If I'm not wrong , Ragimund didn't do the PM patch but the output seems show some kind of PM. :surprised::blink: . Geekbench 5 is not familiar to me. It seems has a new scale score. An important tool to check if cpu down or up speed is  Hwsensors + sensor kexts.

@bilbo can you post the output of these commands :

 

kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu
kextstat|grep -y x86plat

sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count
sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.mode

 

I'm not in front of my computer. I'll try as soon as possible. Just out of curiosity, what's this for?

Hi All,

 

Yes, I have NOT done the PM configuration/patching yet related to HS Part V: PM Guide. !!

Just installed Mojave from USB, Installed Clover to Mojave Boot SSD, Installed Update for Safari (35MB) and Update Mojave 2019-001 (1.5GB). That's All. Nothing else.

 

And Geekbench 5 if Updated version of Geekbench 4 test software (Win & Mac, Trial is free, no registration).

Like CinebenchR20 (Free, Full version) is Updated (& better) version of CinebenchR15 that test actual Rendering power of the system, that is used in many Mac articles and Youtube reviews...

 

I'm also a little confused as I have not done anything to PM but it seems that something is anyway working - or at least it "looks" like it, reality might bee something else.

 

I have to install those sensors and HWMon app and see is the clock (Ghz) actually changing or not ??

Meaning does it ever go above 2,4Ghz on my system ??

 

Still NOT doing anything to my PM before trying that HWMon app and see results...

 

Have to Download that Sensor & HWMon package first, is that Koslow package still the best in Mojave version ? Or do others use newer or some other version ?

You can use bilbo's HWSensors: download the stuff archive from the first page of this thread, it's in the "05 PM/01-hwsensors" folder.

Always follow bilbo's directions and include only specified kexts in your Clover folder!

You should see multipliers oscillating between min and max (x12 and x32 in your case).

 

Personally I'm using bilbo's kexts with HWSensors 6.26-357-gceb835ea.1800 which gives me info about SSD life.

Maybe HWSensors3 project is worth a try:

 

 

Let us know!

Gentlemen, something strange is happening...

I've just made a quick check on my Mojave (18G2022) PM and it's working... OK, you'll say, what's the problem?

The odd is that PM is working WITHOUT AICPM patching!!!

Latest 18G2022 update went smoothly and PM is working as usual so I thouth AICPM.kext was untouched by this update...

I've made a check using "sudo perl AICPMPatch.pl /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement" command and it found the usual 10 wrmsr!!! AICPM is NOT patched but PM works perfectly according to HWSensors and AppleIntelInfo...

I've extracted the relevant file from last two Mojave versions and ran AICPMPatch on both.

Files are different (different MD5) but offsets are the same.

 

Also notice my X86PlatformPlugin version 999.9.9 from LegacyX86PlatformPlugin.kext installed in S/L/E:

At this point I think that Clover's AppleIntelCPUPM flag is suffcient at least on Mojave...

 

Catalina is approaching... ^__^

Today I feel very adventurous...

1) performed a vanilla Catalina 10.15.1 install to a spare SSD;

2) booted with my EFI without success (KP);

3) resolved KP by borrowing AppleMCEReporterDisabler.kext from AMD OS X Project (https://amd-osx.com/2019/10/10/macos-catalina-is-on-amd/);

4) booted and black screen;

5) resolved by updating Lilu and WhateverGreen to the latest versions;

6) succesfully booted Catalina (!);

7) successfully upgraded to 10.15.2 (on a totally black screen...);

8) the only not working thing is PM, I think AICPM has to be patched.

Right now I'm backing up my Mojave SSD (booted with Catalina EFI without problems) and I'm planning to update... Stay tuned!

      Nvidia GT 640 3Gb not working in High sierra PC Dell Optiplex 9010. Spinning icon with mouse curser nothing else
    • By _ivan_palmisano_
      Ho provato tutti i modi ma sono arrivato alla conclusione che ha bisogno di una patch DSDT.
      Ciao, ho recentemente un hackintosh nel mio laptop e devo risolvere l'attacco video HDMI che non ha eseguito quando collego il mio laptop alla TV.
      le foto con queste informazioni sono state fatte con un programma quando che avrei vinto 10 nell'altra foto l'informazione di hackintosh.
      Acer Aspire 5741g Modello High Sierra System!
      Caratteristiche:
      CPU: Intel Core I3 350M 2.27Ghz Arrandale 32nm Tecnologia
      Ram: 6: 00GB
      Grafica: Monitor Pnp generico (1366x768 Ghz) 1024mb Nvidia GeForce GT 320M (Acer Incorporated)
      Archiviazione: 465 GB Sata
      Driver Optiocal: Optiarc DVD RW- AS-7585H
      Audio: dispositivo audio ad alta degradazione
      Qualcuno può aiutarmi!?! E 'la terza volta che faccio questo post in questo gruppo visto che sono nuovo nel mondo hackintosh preferisco se qualcuno è capace a risolvere il mio problema che lo faccia in remoto così non faccio sbagli.

      Ciao ragazzi, sono incappato in un problema che di sicuro sono io stupido.
      Premetto che: Chiavetta 32giga, formattata Journaled e GUID, Clover installato.
      In primis la cartella che crea Clover dei Driver non si chiama drivers64EFI e ne crea una drivers e basta, de facto non legge i driver e di conseguenza la chiavetta per fare l'installazione.
      Pazienza, ho scaricato i driver altrove e li ho buttati in una cartella drivers64EFI, ergo chiavetta rilevata dentro clover.
      Arrivo all'utility disco, inizializzo l'SSD(samsung 860pro) in APFS e facendo partire l'installer non mi fa cliccare l'SSD APPENA formattato dicendomi che sto provando ad installare un MacOS più VECCHIO di quello attualmente installato o.0????????
      Ok, CMD Q e torno all'utility, formatto in Journaled ma nulla di fatto, mi ridice la stessa frase. Faccio hackintosh da snow leopard ma una roba del genere mai vista.
      La chiavetta l'ho creata col classico create installer media da una virtual machine con Mojave. E il driver APFS l'ho cercato apposta per 10.13 e i driver scaricati li ho trovati sul web per una MOBO identica alla mia ma Mojave (Aorus Ultra Z390).
      Non ne vengo a capo. Devo forse formattare la chiavetta in MBR?
      GRAZIE A TUTTI e soz per la nabbaggine
    • By Ragimund (HP Z820)
      Hi All,
      Noob here asking Help or Hints,
      trying to build my first Hackintosh from HP Z820. Almost done...
       
      Read Z820 Sierra & High Sierra Z820 installation guides in this forum - following them I managed to create a Booting Mojave install USB and successful
      installation of Mojave 10.14.6 in to SSD. Via Clover Boot view I can choose Mojave SSD and it boots Ok, logging in Ok.
       
      Everything "looks" to work Ok.
      -CPU recognised Ok.
      -SSD & HDU Ok.
      -GPU Radeon RX580, 2 x DP in use.
      -Dual displays Ok (Full HD, no internal speakers)
      -Wired LAN working (2 Wired LAN RJ-45 connectors, using the one without text label "AMT" (?))
      -No Wifi (no dongle)
      -Audio working: line out & headphones, airplay (ALC262, injected 28) Ok.
      -Bluetooth dongle (Ebay) in USB2.0 port Ok (paired BT Speaker, Keyboard and Mouse).
      -Front: 1 x USB2.0, 2 x USB3.0 (all as USB2.0 mode, I think).
      -Back: 4 x USB2.0, 2 x USB3.0 (all as USB2.0 mode, I think).
      -Back: Firewire OK/NOK ? Don't own any fw device at the moment, how to test, not important now.
       
      Not yet signed to any Apple service, iCloud, etc. Not yet installed any other software except Clover 5098 and Hackintools 2.8.6
       
      MY PROBLEM:
      System Preferences is showing Update, Mojave 2019-001 (1.55GB). Safari was updated Ok with another smaller update.
      I try to install the Mojave Update. It downloads it Ok, warns about needed Restart and after accept it starts to install it.
      Apple logo visible, progress bar visible, text "Installing Software Update" visible. Progress bar shows a minor progress - stays almost in the beginning...
      and Wham! - Rebooting
       
      Logging in Ok, System Update window pops open and offers the same update again...
       
      Have read plenty of articles from different Forums (sorry, I'm desperate, Noob) and I have a feeling that it relates to my Z820 USB's (maybe??).
      HP Z820 uses "Texas Instruments USB3.0 xHCI Host Controller" - NOT Intel like Apple. That's why All my USB are in "usb2.0 mode" (??).
       
      I installed the system with SSD/HDU cables in factory settings (in SAS/SATA connectors. AstekFusion2Adapter & AstekFusion2Family kexts), worked fine.
      I changed the SSD/HDU cables to different connectors (ACHI 0 / 1) like in Z820 High Sierra guide later and Booted Ok. Tried Update, FAIL.
       
      Have no idea what's wrong or what's causing this - like I said, I'm a Noob and trying to build my first Hackintosh...
       
      Can anyone Help Noob ?
