Mac mini 2018 smbios - possible desktop hackintosh usage

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So apple has presented a new and updated mac mini a few days ago, and the great news seems to be the use of desktop processors in it, in fact, all the specs seems to match a typical desktop socket 1151 v2 coffeelake system without a dedicated gpu, so i am wondering if the smbios of this machine could be our new smbios of preference for coffeelake desktop machines. So i have created this new topic to discuss about it. Of course we will have to wait to do tests using the first public version of mac os which integrates this smbios, because when every new mac is released it's smbios is available initialy just in a purpose made mac os build and then it's added for all the os builds in the following releases.

 

So what do you think about the possibility of using this new smbios for desktop coffeelake machines instead of the imac 18.3/18.2 ones?

Which SMI-BIOS does the new Mac Mini use?

Yesterday I've installed the latest security update (2018-002) of HS. Cause of the missing nvidia driver for Mojave I'm stuck with HS. 

To my suprise the Intel Coffee Lake CPU (I7-8700K) was recognized by HS, which means that Apple has provided support to the Intel Z370 chipset and the 18.3 SMBIOS I'm using.

I doubt there will be a new special SMBIOS for the new Mac Mini.

It uses an smbios which is not available yet, every mac model and revision does use it's own smbios, but coffeelake cpus works on mac os 10.12.6 or newer versions because they are quite similar to the kaylake cpus.

Wish Pike was still around, he would have already had something for us to play with. 

Will start poking around to see what I can dig up before this week.

 

By the way Pietro, your TINU app has a lot of promise. I used it to create an installer, I will try using it this week and see how well it works. Thanks for the contribution and all the hard work. Nice video with Paul, can't wait for the next one.

You should be able to get HD630 running without the MacMini SMBios. What have you tried?

i3 8100 UHD graphics is not natively supported my high sierra. You have to spoof it. So here are the steps:

 

Method : Coffee Lake 0x3E91808 FakeID + Blank ig-platform-id

Required Kexts:

  1. Download & unzip the most recent version of FakePCIID
  2. Copy FakePCIID.kext & FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext from the Release folder of Rehabman-FAKEPCIID & paste them to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
  3. Download the latest of Shiki.kext
  4. Download the most recent version of IntelGraphicsFixup.kext
  5. Copy & Paste Shiki.kext & IntelGraphicsFixup.kext into EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other

Now open config.plist using Clover Configurator & do the following

 

 

  1. Select Boot on left-side column
  2. Under Arguments check if -disablegfxfirmware is there or not if not then add it
  3. add shikigva=1 right after -disablegfxfirmware
  4. Select RtVariables on left-side column & Disable SIP (put CsrActiveConfig 0x67)
  5. Save & Exit

Now you have to edit the .plist files of two Kaby Lake kexts and insert the Coffee lake strings into them. You can’t edit the kext files directly in Finder because they are locked. So what you can do is go into Terminal and use nano to make changes.

 

 

  1. Open Terminal App & type the following:
    sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelKBLGraphics.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  2. Enter Password and Info.plist will populate in Terminal
  3. Find <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> near the bottom of Info.plist in Terminal. It’s hidden when Info.plist populates. Use down arrow key scroll down Info.plist
  4. Use the arrow keys to highlight the first 0 in 0x3E928086
  5. Add 0x3E918086
  6. Press Space Bar
  7. Should look like this:
    <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
    <string>0x59128086 0x59168086 0x591B8086 0x591E8086 0x59268086 0x59278086 0x3E9B8086 0x3EA58086 0x3E918086 0x3E928086</string>
  8. Press Ctrl+X and then press Y then Enter to save it.
  1. Type the following into Terminal:
  2. sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  3. Enter Password and Info.plist will populate in Terminal…
  4. Find <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> again for this Info.plist
  5. Press Spacebar before the first “<” at the start of </string> using your keyboard arrow keys
  6. Add 0x3E918086 0x3E928086
  7. Should look like this:
    <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
    <string>0x59128086 0x59168086 0x591B8086 0x591E8086 0x59268086 0x59278086 0x59238086 0x3E918086 0x3E928086</string>
  8. Press Ctrl+X and then press Y then Enter to save it.
  1. Paste the following into Terminal:
    sudo kextcache -i /
  2. Paste the following into Terminal
    sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
  3. Close Terminal
  4. Navigate to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/
  5. Right click config.plist and open with Clover Configurator
  6. Click Graphics on left-column of Clover Configurator
  7. Remove ig-platform-id value
  8. Click Devices on left-column of Clover Configurator
  9. Set IntelGFX box to 0x3E928086
  10. Save config.plist & Reboot.

Or you can check https://hackintosher.com/guides/get-i3-8350ki3-8100-uhd-630-igpu-working-high-sierra/#3 and follow method 3.

No offense but, you have to be a lot more detailed than that. What IntelGFX FakeID are you using? What ig-platform-id? What kexts? 

 

What board are you using? 

 

From a quick search here are two links that might be useful.

Well said Poles89. You covered all the bases and then some.

 

I'm going to get 8th gen Cpu and build a HacMini with the Z370 chipset just to see how well the latest Intel stuff works. 

 

I'v been tinkering around with some older X79 and X99 systems but, it might be time to try a 1151 system.

Thank you, I will try again:) though I think I've already done this, maybe I'm setting up a clover?

Bez urazy, ale musisz być bardziej szczegółowy. Jakiego IntelFX FakeID używasz? Co id-platform-id? Jakie kexts? 

 

Z jakiej płyty korzystasz?

Thank for appreciating my work, there is also athread dedicated to TINU in the New Releases and Updates section of the forum if you want to take a look, and yes we are preparing a new video.

 

For the mac mini smbios, we have to wait because we need some more infomrations about it to use it, and we need also a public macOS version which does support it, but for now coffeelake cpus are working fine with imac 18.3 or imac 18.2 smbioses, but you need to configure everything properly to get the system to work as expected, and the socket 1151 is a pretty easy platfrom for hackintoshing, i have done lots and lots of installs on socket 1151 machines, and the systems usually works well with just basic clover configurations.

Hi, is there any chance that the smbios Mac Mini 2018 will be created this year - is it a very long procedure to create? :)

 

i think that we can start to use it when 10.14.2 will be released

      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 04/08/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F12d Only or Replace with the older F11 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      Clover Z390 Pro Navi Vega EFI 040820.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT EFI
      Clover Z390 Pro Polaris EFI 040820.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) DSDT EFI
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      OpenCore EFI Update - 04/08/2020
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.
       
      OpenCore 060 Z390 Pro 19,1 030820.zip - OpenCore v0.6.0, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 060 Z390 Pro 1,1 030820.zip - OpenCore v0.6.0, SMBios iMacPro1,1 (IGPU Disabled)
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0. Use the new Config.plist instead.
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      For OpenCore Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following 

       
      PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11c Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      PLEASE NOTE - Please flash your motherboard bios to revision F12d to use my current Clover EFI. It’s a major rework of the bios and vital changes have been made to the layout and power tables. New DSDTs have been created and installed into the new EFI’s but will not work correctly with any other bios revision.

      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F11e or Higher to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      Z390AORUSMASTER.zip  - Aorus Z390 Master Bios Firmware F11e 
       
      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 04/08/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update v5120 - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F11e or Higher Only or Replace with the older F11c/F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      EFI Clover VEGA Navi 030820.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT SMBios 19,1 EFI
      EFI Clover Polaris NVIDIA 030820.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) SMBios 19,1 EFI
       
      Please Note - I have now set KernelPM to No as standard so if you don’t have a unlocked MSR or not using my MSR Unlocked Bios Profile then go into the Clover Config.plist and set KernelPM to Yes or you won’t be able to boot up. An even better fix would be to unlock your MSR using my profile method.
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
       
       
      OpenCore EFI Update v0.6.0 - 04/08/2020
      Myself and @texem have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.
       
      OpenCore 060 Z390 Master 19,1 030820.zip - OpenCore v0.6.0, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 060 Z390 Master 1,1 030820.zip - OpenCore v0.6.0, SMBios iMacPro1,1 (IGPU Disabled)
       
      Note - If your not using a 5700 XT or any other Navi GPU then remove agdpmod=pikera from the boot arguments.
      Note 2 - Do not try to carry across your old OpenCore Config.plist to the new EFI as to many changes have occurred in 0.6.0 so please use the new Config.plist instead.
       
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit OpenCore)
       
      Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following 

       
      PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11e Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      CFG Unlock (MSR) F11e BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU

      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      Hi everyone, 
      I hava a dell precision m4700 with option dgpu amd firepro m4000, The Intel HD4000 Graphic is disable, i can't enable it on to install Hackintosh
      I'd like to enable it on and ask you for setting custom connectors to get the internal display to work, and enable the iGPU in order to get things like AirPlay screen mirroring to work
      Could you help me?

      **********************************************************************************
      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
      **********************************************************************************
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
       

       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi.  A possible solution is here, but I am NOT offering any support for this.
