This card has great signalling, too bad it uses an USB header and I only have one on my motherboard. Definitely an important point to be aware if anyone considers buying it.

 

Wifi goes through PCI slot, connect to the USB header for the Bluetooth functionality.

On Apple cards both wifi and bt go through the PCI slot, but on this one you need to connect to the USB header for the Bluetooth functionality.

Not true. Even on Apple-branded WiFi cards BT is handled by USB.

Oh really? Then I stand corrected. Couldn't see any cable attachment on the pictures.

 

That seems so unnecessary!

That's because Apple uses its own form factor, similar to NGFF. Thus it doesn't need a USB cable. But on hacks you will need it.

You can still use the card without BT. Of course, Airport, handoff, etc. will not work.

Got the card in the mail today.

 

Connected, and all worked instantly. Didn't have to touch a single setting.

 

Hackintosh is 100% fully functional now. Vanilla. 10.14.2.

      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger
      - macOS Catalina install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction  This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader
       
      Download the CloverEFI from official repository (used 5099) and install only with these options on "Install macOS Catalina":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - FSInject (I still don't know if it's really necessary)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - ApfsDriverLoader (Support to APFS partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - VBoxHfs (Support HFS/HFS+ partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - Memory fix drivers - AptioMemoryFix (Fix the memory management of de UEFI/BIOS)
      - UEFI Drivers - Additional drivers - NvmExpressDxe (If you are going to use NVMe)
       
      FileVault 2
       
      If you plan to use FileVault 2, you need to download additional drivers, since what comes with Clover is not up to date and use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.
      Follow instructions bellow:
       
      From current Clover installation, check these options to USB keyboard/mouse work on password screen:
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbKbDxe
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbMouseDxe
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      Download the versions 2.1.0 and 2.0.9 of AppleSupportPkg from: https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases
      We need the last version of AppleGenericInput.efi that is inside 2.1.0 and last version of AppleUiSupport.efi that is inside 2.0.9.
      OR download attached bellow.
       
      Put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
       
      That's it! FileVault 2 will work without problems.
       

       
       
       
      Make things works
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below according to your processor version.
      - Put all SSDT-*.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.8.0.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Copy the Clover Configurator to flash drive because you will need later.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC.kext, SMCProcessor.kext, SMCSuperIO.kext and UEFI driver (put VirutalSmc.efi inside /Volumes/EFI/EFI/drivers/UEFI/). I used the version 1.0.9.
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.9.
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.4.
      - Download the AppleALC.kext from here. I used the version 1.4.3.
      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
      - Download the IntelMausi.kext from here. I used the version 1.0.2.
      - Download the SmallTree-Intel-211-AT-PCIe-GBE.kext attached bellow to enable second ethernet.
       
      Important! If you are coming from my previous Mojave guide, please note that I am using some kexts from other repositories / authors.
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM94360CS)
       
      Works out of box (plug 'n' play).
       
       
      Now you can start the installation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock (Geekbench 4: 5840/27384) and another with overclock [5.0 GHz] (Geekbench 4: 6360/30348)
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      Then:
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - Choose the flash drive (white icon).
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press ESC again and select the flash drive.
       
      Choose the internal disk (gray hdd icon) if not already selected.

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.

       
      Post installation
       
      Bootloader

      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to make the system disk bootable.

      Open the Clover Configurator from flash drive that you copied before.

      Mount and open the flash drive EFI partition. (Inside Clover Configurator, Mount EFI -> Select flash drive in Efi Partitions list -> Mount Partition -> Open Partition)
       
      Copy the EFI folder to desktop.
       
      Go back to Clover Configurator, unmount the EFI partition of the flash drive and mount and open the EFI partition of internal disk.
       
      Move the EFI folder from Desktop to EFI partition of the internal disk.
       
      Eject the flash drive.
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition of internal disk to /Library/Extensions and make kext cache, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
      Last thing
       
      Run this command in Terminal to disable hibernation (doesn't work in macOS):
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0  
       
      It's done!
       
       
      System Updates
       
      10.15.2
       
      Before install, update the following kexts:
      - Lilu.kext. I used version 1.4.0.
      - WhateverGreen.kext. I used version 1.3.5.

      Mount EFI partition and unzip to:
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi (rename the copy of CLOVERX64.efi to BOOTX64.efi
       
      Install update. Will reboot at least four time.
       
       
      10.15.3
       
      Updated with success without changing anything.
       
       
      10.15.4

      - Same as usual, update all Kexts and Clover.
      - Install Update, reboot.
       
      If you like me, I had a problem with two monitors. I needed to roll back two Kexts of video from 10.15.4: FixGraphics10.15.5.zip
      After replace, fix permissions and cache.
       
      And last but not least

      Hey all, hope you’re well :-)
       
      Writing this from a phone so apologies in advance for formatting errors etc.
       
      I’d like to build / am in the process of building a new machine. I started, then my mobo died and had to be rma’d and that put things on hold for a while..
       
      Now things are are back on track here’s what I’m looking at. 
       
      I would like the system to boot Mac OS for music etc and as main / general os, Windows for gaming and Linux for development etc.
       
      Heres the hardware I’m looking at - when I was looking at this previously I had set it up with clover but am definitely looking to go opencore this time around.
       
      Gigabyte Aorus Pro / Aorus Pro WiFi 
      Intel 9700k
      Corsair 650w PSU
      CoolerMaster ML240L
      MSI Air Boost Vega 64
      970 evo 1TB (Mac)
      Intel 660p 512GB (Windows)
      Crucial BX500 120GB (Linux)
      2TB Barracuda or WD Blue (Storage)
      Fenvi FV HB-1200 WiFi / Bluetooth 
      Aerocool Cylon Case
       
      I wanted to rival next generation games consoles and get a newer GPU but I will not be using Catalina due to the removal of 32 bit support. Therefore I think the vega is about as good as I can get with Mojave, and it will still work fine in windows for gaming etc. 
       
      What are your thoughts on the above hardware ? 
       
      Hack/Mac-able? / With opencore ?
       
      Any Issues I may encounter ?
       
      I think I have most of the drivers / kexts for opencore together already but I’m obviously unable to progress with the ssdt files without the hardware. Wanted some advice on whether or not it’s doable before I splash the cash 
       
      I’ll also add to this thread / move it appropriately as the build progresses, hopefully smoothly
       
      peace & thanks in advance :-)

      Hey everyone!
      Got my first build up and running a few days ago, and while almost everything works perfectly, I'm experiencing some odd sound quality issues. I'm currently listening to my audio through the 3.5mm jack on the front of my case. The sound quality sporadically jumps from being muffled to clear and is also a bit staticky.
      I've dug into a number of different scenarios that sound similar to mine, but I hoped that someone here might be able to give me more clarity.
      Here's a sample of the issue: https://clyp.it/xyfxysf2
      Config.plist: https://pastebin.com/BStEGbpe
      My hardware:
      CPU: Intel i9 9900k
      GPU: Radeon 5700 XT OC
      RAM: Corsair ddr4 32GB (2x16)
      Motherboard: Z390 Designare LGA1151
       
      Any help is really appreciated!

      So I've had my current hack up, and running now for several months, and it has been great up until now. I took the 10.15.4 update, as well as its supplemental update, and things went downhill really fast. For one, the dreaded, wake from sleep = black display issue has once again popped up, as well as an issue in which the display, if it does wake from sleep, has a weird color to it (the bug closely resembles the pink display problem). Moreover, clover will not boot into single user mode, or properly boot in verbos mode. The system will boot, but it's like the -v flag is being completely ignored. I cannot seem to figure out what's going on, but the situation is pretty bad (especially since at the start of this week, I had a rock solid build). Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated, as I can no longer get some of my work done; thank you to all who read this. I have attached a picture of the display glitch I'm experiencing below.

      System specs:
      Motherboard: Asus prime Z370-A MK ii
      CPU: Core i5 9600k
      GPU: Sapphire pulse RX 580 rev. 2 (This variant has a switch on the card for "gaming" and "compute" modes).
      Storage: 2x Samsung 970 evos (500 GBs) and a 4TB HDD for data
      PSU: Seasonic 750w 80+ platinum
      Wi-Fi + bluetooth: Broadcom BCM 94630CD - works OOB
      Ethernet: Intel i210 gigabit PCIE x1 - again, works OOB

      Hi, I'm kind of lost when scrolling to Clover Configurator, so I decided to use an EFI from the web and just configure the most basic stuff. But that sadly didn't work, im always getting the attached screen IMG_0054.HEIC (and I don't know whether all the errors are listed, as I can't scroll). 
      Anyways I thought it'd be better to do a custom setup. Can anyone give me some help with what to choose in the settings? Here's my rig:
      i7 8700k
      Asus z370-G (Rog Strix)
      gtx 1060 6gb
      samsung ssd (SATA)
      WD hard drive
       
      Your help would be much appreciated!
