Hey,

 

Thank you for you guide ! It was very helpful for me. I just have an issue : I don't have a USB after sleep. The USB stick is eject when I wake my hack up.

 

EDIT : Only with USB sticks whatever the ports it is plugged. But with external HDD or TB3, it's working fine after sleep.

 

If you have any idea.

 

Thank you

 

What are the exact specifications of your Hackintosh build ?

That's good point (However I am not using the Evo Plus for Mac only for Windows10) my Hacki is on 840 Evo SSD, I have now updated to latest Firmware for my M.2 970 Evo Plus.

Will test and report after a while.

 

Even without macOS being installed on the Evo Plus drive, macOS will still be trying to mount the Windows partitions on start up, so possibly causing the problem. Hopefully your testing and firmware update turns good.

@glasgood, thank you so much for putting this guide together, got me up and running with a great build! I had a couple followup questions that I'm wondering if you know how to tackle or if I needed to make any modifications to the standard setup you provided:

 

1. I'm running an RX560 card instead of an RX580, and I'm also running it in PCI slot 2 instead of slot 1 (more on that in a second). Everything seems to be running fine though, so I'm not sure if I need to make any changes to the SSDT or clover config to account for this?

 

2. I'm running the RX560 in slot 2 because I'm also using an Nvidia 1070 in slot 1 for Windows. I've read you can disable the Nvidia card in macos using a custom SSDT. Have you run across how to do this or anyone else doing this on this build?

 

Thanks again for all your work on this!

 

I only have one GPU in use on my Aurus Pro, so don't have any sound advice to offer.  If your hackintosh is running without problems then I don't think SSDT would be required. @larabee advise is spot on, larabee is using Vega 56 + a nv 2070 for gamin

and has not encountered any problems.  But if you have problem, you could try creating BIOS profiles.  There is an SSDT available for the popular ( excellent ) Gigabyte Designare guide on the net that disables GPU in slot 2, it most likely will work with Aorus Pro.

Hello @Delecta

 

If build is Aorus Pro Z390 and you have SMBIOS for iMac 19,1 then replace USBInjextAll.kext with ==> USBPorts.kext.zip  and remove SSDT-UIAC, SSDT-USBX.

Hello @Glasgood,

 

I am actually in 18.3 and I have success to work my 2 ports TB3 in hotplug ! But I will try your kext and let you know.

 

Thank you very much !

Update the model within info.plist in USBPorts.kext to reflect 18,3

Thanks, I've taken @larabee's advice and swtiched the RX560 to slot 1. I was initially worried about a performance difference using the x16 vs x8 lane, but that turns out to not really matter. In fact, both cards are running at x8 anyways regardless of what slot they are in.

 

I did track down the SSDT patch to disable GPU in slot 2 for Designare and that appears to be working (no nvidia cards showing up anywhere in system report).

 

The one issue I've noticed is that there is a 30 second delay in the boot between the verbose log finishing and the apple logo showing up. After the verbose log finishes scrolling and the purple line artifacts appear at the top of the page, the screen goes dark (still has signal) for 30 seconds. After that, the apple logo pops up and the OS finishes loading to desktop. Not sure if that 30 second delay is because of having that nVidia card in there or something else. I may try to pull the nvidia card and see if that gets rid of the delay.

 

@larabee do you do anything to disable the nvidia card in macos or just ignore it?

I figured out the cause of this delay in booting. It was caused by the ig-platform-id I was using for i7-9700k. I used the second set of values below because I have a 9700k, but when I revert back to the original ig-platform-id (AAPL,ig-platform-id 0300923E) the boot doesn't have the delay anymore. So even if you have an i7-9700k, it looks like you want to use the original ig-platform-id value (as specified in guide for the 8700).

 

Quote

Add your ig-platform-id and your device-id :

 

 

If CPU is i7-8700 / i7-8700K or i5-8600K / i5-8400 or i5-9600

 

Add:

device-id 923E0000 

 

Add:

AAPL,ig-platform-id 0300923E 

 

 

 

If CPU is i9-9900 i9-9900K or i7-9700 / i7-9700K or i5-9600K

 

Add:

device-id 983E0000

 

Add:

AAPL,ig-platform-id 0300983E

Hi,

 

Sometimes when making specific changes within Clover, those changes can trigger a delay between the verbose log and the Apple logo screen,  but that delay usually only happens on the first boot after making changes in Clover.  Subsequent reboots are then normal. 

 

Can you try reverting back to your previous ig-platform-id. Then reboot, login to macOS and then shutdown and restart and see if delay persists. 

 

I'm also thinking that you will have better performance, Final Cut Pro ( if you use it ) and maybe in other compute areas when using proper ig-platform-id.

 

:)

Hello,

 

I tried your kext but it doesn't work

 But now this is not my main issue. My hack stuck at "start uncompressed kernelcache" only when I've got my 2nd SSD in Exfat. I try ti add Fat drivers in Drivers64UEFI. But it doesn't work.

 

Anyone have an idea ?

 

Thank you

Hello again @glasgood !

 

So this is a really weird issue : I have got this "start uncompressed kernelcache" when I have a a second SSD plugged-in in Exfat or in APFS but not in HFS+. But not with an USB stick in Exfat. And what is really weird it's that I can be able to boot only when I put the Intel Graphics in Auto or in Disable in the BIOS or plug any USB stick. Here is my EFI, I'm on 18.3 to be able to have the hotplug in TB3.

Hi, 

 

Just looking at your EFI, it is one on the older EFI from the guide. Also nothing is injected in Devices Properties in your config.plist, you have no SSDT-UIAC.aml and are using USBInjectAll.kext with no boot args to include or exclude. Please use the latest EFI folder from guide.  Then transfer your SSDT's for Thunderbolt over to most recent EFI from guide.

@glasgood thanks for getting back to me. I bought the exact board like yours and swap out my old board couple weeks ago, that's why I ask to see if you have anything like that. If I continue to have the issue, I will swap motherboard or my RAM to see if it's actually a hardware problem.

 

 @AudioGod With AMD Vega, the card regulate the voltage through a thing called Soft Power Play Table. You can changed the voltage and fan speed using an app called VGTAB It can create a Kext for you to install that regulate the fan speed / power at needed. THen you can inject those into config.plist device properties so the kext won't interfere with liliu and whatevergreen. I attached my config.plist here , you can copy paste that settings into yours and test it out. 

config.plist

Hi, first of all, amazing job to this guide!! My hardware is similar to glasgood but using an Asus Radeon RX Vega 56. 

@larabee Are you still using VGTAB to manipulate voltage and fan speed? I heard Mojave 10.14.5 is doing a great job on that? link to post about VGTab (read the beginning)Can I use the same device properties as yours or they are dependent on the card manufacturer? If so how do you find the values to inject in the config.plist device properties?

Thanks

Damm i used your guide to start, and i works almost out of the box. Big thanks for all the work you put in :-)

I have only one thing that is not working 100% and that is my Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 GAMING 8GB.

 

I can't get hardware acceleration to work, videoproc shows Unavailable. Any tips for that??

Yes so sorry, the fact is now my computer doesn't want to boot anyway..I am going to make a fresh install but I was able to boot with my APFS MacOs bootable SSD drive and my ExFat storage ssd drive only if I plugged a Exfat USB stick..

      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!
      (Update: after the latest updates in this tutorial the system should be update-proof.) 
       
      Step 7: Fixes / Enhancements / Alternative Solutions / Bugs
      See: https://github.com/wmchris/DellXPS15-9550-OSX/blob/10.13/Tutorial_10.13_Step7.md
       
      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
      27. March 2017: UHD Kexts added, replaces perl command 23. March 2017: 4k sector tutorial against NVMe corruption added   7. March 2017: Suggestion to disable the SD Card Reader for reduced power consumption 4. February 2017: Dell SMBIOS Truncation workaround added 23. January 2017: Hynix SSD fix added 31. December 2016: USB-C Hotplug Fix and USB InjectAll Removed 28. December 2016: NVMe SSDT Spoof precreated, FakeID already preset in installation config.plist. VoodooHDA added as alternative to SSDT-ALC298 patch as well as color coding in tutorial 22. December 2016: FakeSMBios added Accessories Appendix:
      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.

      I've just got my hack. to were I'm happy with it.
      its been a long road. and up to this point was always evolving. and from the software side. id Like to thank EVERYONE that as given there time help and support  in my Hackintosh adventure.
      the hardware side. as at times been a bit of a challenge (learning to bent stainless tubing) I got the powder coating done by a local company
      Please comment. Had to change the tubing around
