[Guide 2018] Z820 - HIGH SIERRA, The great guide (Sucess)

Thank's a lot for the good tips, specially for the fact, that the 2609 doesn't support hyperthreading. In 2-3 days I will switch to a SSD drive, before that I will give it a try (in the moment the system is working very nice).

@Gabrielss

 

I myself have encountered a similar behaviour.

 

The only thing I can recommend is trying to redo the whole Power management procedure.

Even better make a complete backup of Your (so far) working configuration beforehand.

 

I wish I could be of more help to You.

I  checked your files, and I can't see anything wrong. Reading again my own guide,:rolleyes: ,  maybe something is not clear enough for non standard cpu models users (like you):

 

-To generate the ssdt with ssdtprgen, and the tip of drag to desktop the ssdt1-cpu-def to avoid the error "No ACPI Processor declarations ...", the ssdt1-cpudef has to be the ssdt patched provided in the stuff folder, needed for boot from the first step, not the original extracted with F4.

 

Maybe is this the problem? Did you get some error in ssdtprgen output? which command did you use to generate the ssdt?

I was successfully install Mac 10.12. But once I got kernel panic, I don't what happened and I tried to reinstall and found that I can't patch RQ_and_HDEF file anymore, also I can't use AppleALC Kext.

 

And Now I upgrade from Mac 10.12 to Mac 10.13, he same problem remains.

Anyone know what is going on there?

 

Is my motherboard broken?

 

The one showed the message with "busy timout[0], (60s): 'IOFireWireLocalNode', happened after I patched RQ_and_HDEF and used AppleALC Kext.

The other one, showed the message with "busy timeout[0], (60s): 'IOHDACodecFunction', I used AppleALC Kext without patching RQ_and_HDEF.

What's your Bios version ?

 

Here's my EFI folder for High Sierra.

I've got the same cpu's - My best guess is that You could use it as is - Just generate a new serial number.

Hi,

Have a problem with boot. Every time stack on ++++++++ line.

What I do wrong?

Thanks!

 

Hello!

Try using OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi instead AptioMemoryFix-64.efi.

 

Let us know!

Maybe legacy / EFI boot issue? Check your bios settings and your boot options. If you use legacy boot, the settings to install clover are sighly different that the described in the guide.

The best course of action in cases like this is to take it from the top and try to install from scratch - It might soud tedious but a couple of hours worth of reinstalling is better than days of troubleshooting!

Thanks again Bilbo, for your great guide!

 

I was afraid I'd have to do a full install from scratch, instead of just upgrading to High Sierra, but dreading to go through all that again, bought a backup SSD so I could freely experiment, and with success!

 

I have an Z620 with 2x E5-2690 v2 and an NVidia K4000 GPU. First I made a clone to my 2nd SSD using Clonezilla, which copies everything needed, including the EFI partition, so the disk could directly be used to boot from. Much easier than using any other tool, and it's free.

 

Then I removed all disks from my system and booted from that cloned disk. I updated Clover to the latest version (5.4.1.1), using the settings that Bilbo supplied in the "First boot" section. 

Next, I copied all the new and/or updated Kexts from Bilbo's ZIP file, from the "Final" folder. I left the 10.12 folder intact, and put all the stuff in the 10.13 (not 10.3 as is erroneously stated in the instructions) and "other" folders. I also copied the Uefi64 drivers folder.

 

All other things stayed untouched: my own, working pllist.config (or whatever it's called, I'm not currently behind my Z) and SSDTs/DSDTs, or to keep it simple: I kept everything the same except the Kexts in 10.13 and "other" folders, the Uefi64 drivers, and the new Clover Configurator.

 

After these changes, I rebooted to see if everything still worked, which it did.

 

Then I did the installation of High Sierra , keeping the file system as it was - I didn't want to take the risk to change that as well. Leaving out the "--converttoapfs NO" tag will probably do the conversion to APFS if you do want that. 

/Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --converttoapfs NO

I'm happy that the upgrade completed succesfully after several reboots.

After that, I used the App Store to upgrade to 10.13.6, a download of almost 3 GB - not that it appears to bring that many useful changes :-) 

 

Thanks Bilbo, and thanks to all others in this great community for sharing their knowledge!

LOL. I would never done that , even drunk :D

 

Haha :-) But why not, if I may ask? I mean, with a clean install, you'd also have to install all your applications again, download all content again, copy over all your files - it's a lot more work. And Sierra actually worked very well for my purposes already, so there was no need at all to undertake something like that :w00t:

Another convenient way to clone your hack is super-duper.

 

It works while running Macos without any glitch.

 

The built-in migration assistant is also a big timesaver whenever you're performing an upgrade. It saves you a lot of time and works flawlessly.

I've updated the stuff folder to include this last change.  It allows show as a internal icon (or custom it). Thanks to xuy_

 

The change is open info.plist of AstekFusion2Adapter.kext , and change IOMediaicon property (into IOKitpersonalities) from "SASadapter.icns to Internal.icns".

Hi there, I followed the great Guide and put Bilbos SSDT-1.aml for 26x7 or 26x3 users here: EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched

 

Instantly get a Kernel Panik trying to boot of the clover-usb-stick.

Can you guys point me in the right direction where to go from here?

      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.

      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

      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 ?
