Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and new to Mac OS. first of all congratulations for this comprehensive guide. I come to the point: I followed this guide step by step, but without the desired result. I can't even install mac os. everything crashes as soon as the white apple appears ...... I'm sure I created the bootable usb well with mojave v.10.14.4 (from mojave 10.14.2 on vmware) .... I kindly ask for your help


hardware:
gigabyte aorus z390 pro wifi
intel core i7 8700k
Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8gb
16gb corsair vengance lpx (2x8)
SSD Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 500 GB (windows 10 pro)
ssd samsung 840 pro 120gb (for mac os)

 

I started also in verbose mode, I attach photos, if you need anything else, tell me. I repeat, I don't know mac os, please help me ..... maybe even with simple explanations .....
Thanks in advance

Hi, 

 

Lots of ACPI errors,  check BIOS settings correct and BIOS version is F5. Remove DSDT from CLOVER /  ACPI / PATCHED.  Also temporarily disconnect your 970 Evo Plus and ensure that you have corsair memory installed in slots DDR4_A1 and DDR4_B1 . Then start boot from Mojave USB installer, ensure that installer is connected to the USB 2 ports.  When you have successfully installed macOS Mojave then reconnect your 970 Evo Plus. 

 

There seems to be some issues with Samsung 970 Evo Plus causing kernel panics when used with a hackintosh computer.

Hello and thanks for the reply. the bios is set as recommended in the guide, but it is the f8 version, I don't know if I can install previous versions. I used usb2. the ram is installed in a2_b2 otherwise it touches with heat sink .... tomorrow I remove ssd m2 and Remove DSDT (how can I do?) and I try to install again and let me know ....... thank you

forgive the capital, it was not wanted ......

You will have to mount the EFI partition as explained in the guide, then delete DSDT from CLOVER / ACPI / PATCHED. Then install macOS Mojave.

hi everyone, then I removed sam 970 evo plus, I installed the ram in a1 b1 reset the bios as in the guide with the addition of the profile 1 in the ram frequency (3000) removed the DSDT, and since I had removed the video card, I didn't put it back. I try to install it with integrated graphics and it locks up again

Reset BIOS to default settings, then enter BIOS settings in guide, look at images inside spoiler.

Peripherals → Intel (R) Bios Guard → Intel BIOS Guard Support → Disable. I can't find this option, is this: software guard extensions (SGX)?

Hi,

 

I have configured and tested a Pre-install EFI folder for macOS Mojave 10.14.4  >>PRE - INSTALL - Aorus Z390 Pro EFI .zip .  Ensure  BIOS Chipset --> Above 4G Decoding is Disabled. I discovered that 4G Decoding Enabled can cause problems during installation if you don't have DSDT.   You should now be able to install macOS Mojave 10.14.4 without any problems. Once you have installed macOS Mojave 10.14.4, then use the (Aorus Z390 Pro EFI - NO DSDT) EFI folder and copy it to your system drive EFI partition.

This is Amazing, @glasgood! Great Guide as usual!

 

Howdy :) 

 

Just updating guide with a pre install EFI folder. I noticed that when BIOS Above 4G Decoding is Enabled it causes bad problem with last 2 mins of Mojave install and other problems with shutdown and kernel panics.  But with 4G Decoding Disabled then everything is good.

 

But when using DSDT with BIOS Above 4G Decoding Enabled there is no problem, everything good.

Hiya,

 

I have two issue and was wondering if you knew how to fix them.

 

Problem 1 - When my hack goes to sleep my webcam turns off and wont turn back on unless I quit and re-open FaceTime. 

Problem 2 - When my hack wakes my on-board audio doesn't work, I am mainly worried about my mic input.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

Set "Reset HDA" option in clover config to true, and see if resolves issue. Will have a look at this sometime later.

Cameron, if you are using BIOS version F5. Change BIOS settings to match guide. Then replace patched folder in ACPI in Cover with patched.zip . I tested this and sleep and sound is playing upon wake.

 

I made edit below to DSDT.

I had a look through your Clover folder from the Send me Camerons-iMac.zip you sent. Noticed you had extra ( unneeded ) 11 x SSDT in your ACPI folder, you only need DSDT, SSDT-UIAC, and SSDT-USBX. Also you had some boot args missing, I replaced AptioMemoryFix with OSXAptioFix2Drv-free2000 . Attached below, is my Clover folder. Replace your existing Clover folder with that. And you should be sorted.

Thank you,

 

My clover did not have all the SSDT's in it for some reason that RunMe.app put them there.

 

You're clover fixed the audio issues but not the webcam. 

 

I forgot to edit my RT Variables and SMBios in your config, now I don't have iMessage or FaceTime. Guess the waiting game starts for my Authentication Token to reset :(

Don't think you need to wait for authentication token, download and paste  EmuVariableUefi-64.efi  into drivers64UEFI and next configure config.plist for iMessages. Then shut down computer, restart and then log into iMessages and then after successful iMessages / FaceTime login, then delete EmuVariableUefi-64.efi 

 

What happens if you unplug / replug webcam, does webcam then work ?  kinda difficult getting the 100% perfect hack :)

Hiya,

 

So right now I have my original drivers folder and config, which has given me working audio after sleep and my iMessage and FaceTime back. I suspect it is because of the lack of AptioMemoryFix-64.efi in your clover. However I am not sure why audio has started working after sleep, sometimes it doesn't, I'll play with your files if it persists. 

 

Unplugging and plugging in my webcam brings back up the frozen webcam image.

The only solution I have come up with is to download a power manger app that runs the following script after wake

 

Quote

#!/bin/bash
osascript -e 'tell app "/Applications/FaceTime.app" to quit'
open -a "/Applications/FaceTime.app"/
exit 0;

The audio, on awake from sleep stared working after the last remaining  _PWR method was removed from original DSDT.

      hi folks! i'm just checking for opinions here on a Clover based install of High Sierra. currently i can't boot directly from the internal drive on my hackbook, an ASUS ROG GL502-VS laptop (with the replaced WiFi card), though i can boot from the USB bootloader/installer

      i installed 10.13.6 fine using a prepared vanilla installer on HFS+ (not APFS), but my configuration is somewhat unusual. i have two drives. the first SSD has the Windows system, the second has two partitions with the 2nd partition holding the macOS system. when i ran Clover installer i could not use the UEFI option to copy to the EFI partition because it couldn't find one on that drive. so it installed the EFI folder on the root of the macOS partition instead.
       
      however, after a bit of tinkering around, i found out that there is an existing EFI partition on the primary drive called SYSTEM. it has a EFI folder and underneath that is a Windows folder, a Boot folder, and one called APPLE. i can mount this partition with Clover Configurator and copy files to it, but i don't know if this is a good or risky solution. i was thinking i would manually copy the CLOVER folder and the uefi64.boot file to this partition , making sure not to overwrite anything existing. using the UEFI setup, i can create a boot path from the SYSTEM partition to the Clover boot file, but i'm just curious if this is a useful solution or not, and i don't want to ruin the existing Windows 10 installation for sure. any advice appreciated!

      This tutorial has been updated on GITHUB to 10.14 and 10.15
      the tutorial on insanelymac got too fragmented for a simple forum thread and will not be updated, but still be used for discussion and hints, tips and tricks
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Dell XPS 15 (9550, Version of 2016) Sierra 10.13.1 Tutorial

       

       
       
       
       
       
      Before we start:
      this installation includes real time DSDT/SSDT patching from within clover. This is pretty easy to install. But it is NOT suited for people with no or only few knowledge in Hackintosh Systems. If you only know how to copy commands in your shell and you dont know what they're doing, then stop the tutorial and revert to windows or buy a real mac. Even if you get it running: this system is not failsafe and will be broken multiple times in its usage time, where you have to fix it without a tutorial.
      Optional steps are marked in GREEN, System dependent steps are BLUE

      English is not my mother-tongue and i'm writing this without proof reading, so please forgive my bad spelling
      If you've questions or something doesn't work: first check if you've done all steps of this tutorial! If yes: please read the whole thread (doesn't matter how long it is) before asking to prevent multiple questions. Additionally do a search in google and this forum.


      Credits:
      Many knowledge of "how to hackintosh a dell in the first place" by the tutorial of @Gymnae http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319766-dell-xps-9550-detailled-1011-guide/
      Using many kexts and solutions from @RehabMan

      What's not working:
      Hibernation (works somehow, but high chance to destroy your whole data), Sleep works fine! SD-Card reader Killer 1535 Wifi (rarely used, need replace) nVidia Graphics card (Intel works) FileVault 2 (full HDD encryption) Requirements:
      one working MAC OS X Enviroment 16GB USB Stick (larger is sometimes not bootable and/or requires advanced partitioning) MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1 installation file from the app store (redownload, just in case) Knowledge in PLIST editing USB Harddrive for backup - you'll loose all data on your computer! Step 1: Prepare Installation
      Use the existing Mac to download the Sierra installer from the App Store and create a bootable USB stick with CLOVER. You can do this with the App "Pandora's Box" of insanelymac (use google for download link), which is pretty easy to use.
      Optional: check if your SSD can be switched to 4k sector size. This prevents NVMe corruption. See https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/4k_sector.md
      After you've finished you need to download the Dell XPS 15 specific configurations for clover.
      Link: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/archive/10.13.zip and unzip this file or checkout git directly:
      git clone https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX.git You only need the folder 10.13, you can delete the 10.11. I'll refer to this folder by "git/"
      Now mount the hidden EFI partition of the USB Stick by entering
      diskutil mount EFI Inside the terminal. Mac OS will automaticly mount the EFI partition of the USB stick, but just in case: make sure it really is
      Overwrite everything in the CLOVER folder of the partition EFI with the content of git/10.13/CLOVER.
      If your PC has a Core i5 processor, you'll have to modify your config.plist in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/: search for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000.
      If you could use the 4k sector patch, replace the config.plist with the 4kconfig.plist. 
      If you use a hynix device and you didnt do the 4k sector switch, you'll have to add the following patch to your config.plist
      <key>Comment</key> <string>IONVMeFamily Pike R. Alpha Hynix SSD patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data>9sEQD4UcAQAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>IONVMeFamily</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>9sECD4UcAQAA</data> Go into the EFI Configuration (BIOS) of your Dell XPS 15:
       
      Also disable the SD-Card Reader to reduce the power consumption drastically. Insert the stick on the Dell XPS 15 and boot it up holding the F12 key to get in the boot-menu and start by selecting your USB-Stick (if you've done it correctly it's named "Clover: Install macOS Sierra", otherwise it's just the brandname of your USB-Drive). You should get to the MacOS Installation like on a real mac. If you're asked to log-in with your apple-id: select not now! Reason: see Step 5.


      Step 2: Partition and Installation
      INFORMATION: after this step your computer will loose ALL data! So if you haven't created a backup, yet: QUIT NOW!

      Dont install macOS yet. Select the Diskutil and delete the old partitions. Create a new HFS partition and name it "OSX". If you want to multiboot with Windows 10, then you'll have to create a second partition, too (also HFS! Dont use FAT or it will not boot! You have to reformat it when installing Windows). Make sure to select GUID as partition sheme.
      Close the Diskutil and install OSX normally. You'll have to reboot multiple times, make sure to always boot using the attached USB stick. So dont forget to press F12. After the first reboot you should see a new boot option inside clover, which is highlighted by default. Just press enter. If you only see one, then something went wrong.


      Step 3: Make it bootable
      After a few reboots you should be inside your new macOS enviroment. You can always boot into it using the USB stick. Remove the USB drive after successful bootup. Enter
      diskutil mount EFI in your terminal, which should mount the EFI partition of your local installation.

      install git/Additional/Tools/Clover_v2.4k_r4003.pkg. Make sure to select "Install Clover in ESP". Also select to install the RC-Scripts. This should install the Clover Boot System. Now copy everything from git/10.13/CLOVER to EFI/CLOVER like you did before by creating the usb stick. (if you had to modify the config.plist in step 1, do it here, too). Your system should be bootable by itself. Reboot and check if your system can boot by itself.

       
      Step 4: Post Installation
      Because all DSDT/SSDT changes are already in the config.plist, you dont need to recompile your DSDT (albeit i suggest doing it anyway to make your system a lil bit more failsafe, see gymnaes El-Capitan tutorial for more informations). So we can skip this part and go directly to the installation of the required kexts. Open a terminal and goto the GIT folder.
      sudo cp -r ./Post-Install/LE-Kexts/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.bak 2> /dev/null sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.bak 2> /dev/null sudo ./AD-Kexts/VoodooPS2Daemon/_install.command Now you'll have to replace the config.plist. Because you'll install modified kexts you'll HAVE TO replace the config.plist in your installation. Otherwise your PC will not boot anymore.
      diskutil mount EFI replace EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with git/Post-Install/CLOVER/config.plist. Again: if your PC has a Core i5 processor, search the config.plist for the Key ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 and replace it with 0x19160000.

      OPTIONAL (in case you've audio problems):
      AppleHDA has some problems after Wake-Up. You'll have to plug in a headphone to get your speakers working again. You can use VoodooHDA instead, which breaks the headphone jack most of the time, but makes the rest much more stable.
      sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/CodecCommander.kext sudo rm /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/SSDT-ALC298.aml then remove from your config.plist from the key "KextsToPatch" the elements "AppleHDA#1" to "AppleHDA#7". Install the package: git/Post-Install/AD-Kexts/VoodooHDA-2.8.8.pkg
      i also suggest moving some of the kext from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13 to /Library/Extensions. It's just more stable.
      Finalize the kext-copy by recreating the kernel cache:
      sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache sudo rm -rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sometimes you'll have to redo the last command if your system shows "Lock acquired".
      OSX 10.12.2 removed the posibility to load unsigned code. You can enable this by entering
      sudo spctl --master-disable If you're using the 4K monitor, you'll have to copy the UHD enabling kexts to your clover directory:
      sudo cp ./Post-Install/AD-Kexts/UHD-Kexts/* /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/ To enable GPU acceleration: Edit your clover config file again and remove the following block from it:
       
      To prevent getting in hibernation (which can and will corrupt your data), just set the default sleep mode to "suspend to ram" (sleep) instead of "suspend to disk" (hibernation)
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 To get HDMI Audio working:
      Search for your Boarrd-ID in the config.plist and open /S/E/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/contents/plugin/AppleGraphicePolicy.kext/contents/info.plist with a texteditor. Search for your board-id in there and change the value of it from "Config2" to "none"
       
      OPTIONAL (alternative power management):
      the whole power management is done by intels speed step technology (HWP), which is enabled in the clover config. If you want to let OSX manage the power management, you'll have to do these steps:
      sudo cp ./Post-Install/CLOVER/ACPI/optional/SSDT.aml /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ then open the config.plist (/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist) and change <key>HWPEnable</key><true/> to <key>HWPEnable</key><false/>.
       
      Step 5: iServices (AppStore, iMessages etc.)
       
      WARNING! DONT USE YOUR MAIN APPLE ACCOUNT FOR TESTING! It's pretty common that apple BANS your apple-id from iMessage and other services if you've logged in on not well configured hackintoshs!
      If you want to use the iServices, you'll have to do some advanced steps, which are not completly explained in this tutorial. First you need to switch the faked network device already created by step 4 to be on en0. Goto your network settings and remove every network interface.
      sudo rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot, go back in the network configuration and add the network interfaces (LAN) before Wifi.

      You also need to modify your SMBIOS in the config.plist of Clover in your EFI partition with valid informations about your "fake" mac. There are multiple tutorials which explain how to do it like "http://www.fitzweekly.com/2016/02/hackintosh-imessage-tutorial.html".

      It's possible you have to call the apple hotline to get your fake serial whitelisted by telling a good story why apple forgot to add your serial number in their system. (aka: dont do it if you dont own a real mac). I personally suggest using real data from an old (broken) macbook.


      Step 6: Upgrading to macOS 10.13.2 or higher / installing security updates
      Each upgrade will possibly break your system!

      Afterword and fixes
      as i said before: this is not a tutorial for absolute beginners, albeit it's much easier then most other tutorials, because most is preconfigured in the supplied config.plist. Some Dells have components included, which are not supported by these preconfigured files. Then i can only suggest using Gymnaes tutorial which explains most of the DSDT patching, config.plist editing and kexts used in detail and use the supplied files here as templates.
      Warning: Some people have reported multiple data losses on this machine. I suggest using time-machine whenever possible! If your device is detected as "Model Name: Apple Device", see: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/319764-guide-dell-xps-15-9550-sierra-10122-quick-installation/page-13?do=findComment&comment=2362337 If you want to save the settings of the display brightness: downgrade to clover 3899, in the never versions the nvram restore is broken. USBInjectAll is not intended for permanent use. You should check which USB are really required to be injected and modify your DSDT/SSDT. 4K Touchscreen only: Multitouch can be achieved with the driver from touch-base.com, but it's not open source - costs > 100 $ Not a bug: if you REALLY want to use the 4K Display natively and disable the Retina Mode (max 1920x1080), see: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/macbook-pro-retina-display-faq/macbook-pro-retina-display-hack-to-run-native-resolution.html Tutorial Updates

      The official Dell adaptor DA200 (http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=at&l=de&s=dhs&cs=atdhs1&sku=470-abry) works completly on Sierra 10.2.2. You can use the Network, USB, HDMI and VGA. Everything is Hot-Pluggable a cheap 3rd party noname USB-C -> VGA adaptor didnt work you can charge the Dell with a generic USB-C Power Adaptor, but USB-C has only a maximum power of 100W, so it's either charging OR usage, not both. Dont forget you need a special USB-C cable (Power Delivery 3.0) for charging.
