I f*&k up my iGPU settings on purpose to test your theory, but my sleep is working perfectly... I don't see anything wrong with it. I've had random freeze related to graphics issues before but it's long gone since the latest Mojave update... 

Maybe @glasgood has other ideas? 

 

 

No other ideas, not sure why @Sceme29 still has problem with hack, his specifications are very similar to mine except SSD and AIO Watercooler, just now wondering what revision @Sceme29 Aorus Pro Z390 motherboard is? . But I would go back to basics to find root of cause, such as test if problem persists when running Linux from a live CD and checking all hardware and cables are seated properly, remove all overclocks, disable X.M.P , test with 16GB ram ( in recommended RAM slots ) and double check BIOS settings and possibly test with another SSD drive and maybe test if H115i is causing problem.

Ok so the Hackintosh is getting close to perfection. The only thing remaining are the USB ports. On the back only the 4 USB 2 ports are working. Before I start to digg into how to create a ssdt myself this is what hackintool looks like with the "post install rx 580" EFI.  Does this look correct? Only two slots active?

It working good, if you keep Hackintool open and connect a USB3 storage device to back of motherboard plate, then you will see it register the correct speed. So in this instance I connected my SanDisk Ultra USB device to SS5 and it changed from Unknown to 5Gbps.

Thanks! Just for better understanding. What if I connect a USB 3.0 hub with 2.0 devices connected to it? I would still need a USB 2.0 lane on that port, right?

Thank you for your great tutorial. 

I am having an issue post installation. After I install Clover EFI and copy your post installation efi folder (the one with RX580) my computer boots to a black screen. Thus I was wondering if there is any known fix for this issue?

There's only 1 production revision for the Aorus Pro so far. It's 1.0.

I think there's another version which is bascially a knock-off that cheap chinese outlet is selling but I highly doubt Sceme29 can get a hand on one of those because it's for Chinese local market only.

Yes this is correct. USB 2.0 devices will not work even with a USB 3.0 Hub.

Hey Mate, Well I kept messing with it last night and narrowed it down even more. Turns out I had both an HDMI and display port plugged up to my monitor. For some reason I figured “ let me test which output works”. Upon doing this I unplugged the hdmi from the motherboard and left the display port plugged into the GPU......restarted the computer and bingo! Waking from sleep works as it should.

 

after this finding I tried the following just to test it out-

- used the EFI you sent me 2 days ago, works fine

- used the post install efi and it works as well but not the Bluetooth, I think that’s because the USB ports on the motherboard are disabled

 

Somehow the hdmi port is the culprit but honestly since I don’t use that I figured I can live with this issue....for now.  And just to clarify in case it makes a difference, my motherboard is the z390 aorus pro WiFi. I bought it through amazon

@glasgood hello again!

 

It seems that it didn't work after all... I left my computer to sleep overnight and in the morning I got:

The HDMI port on the motherboard uses intel iGPU and if you don't have the right settings (mostly framebuffer), it will fail to display anything. That's why it doesn't work in this case. And since you have a dedicated graphic card, why don't you just unplug HDMI from the motherboard. I've tried with both WIFI and non-Wifi board, it doesn't make any difference at all with the iGPU. The only thing that changes is the amount of free PCI-E lane you have.

Thats good to know, i appreciate your response. I was reading about it and will be trying some different Frame-buffer fixes to see if that helps but yea, at the moment i just unplugged the hdmi since really its not pressing since i'm using the display port.

Just a question, in about this mac, it doesnt show the exact iMac model (such as 2019 model), and it shows rx580 but i have rx570.

Do i need to change something in smbios in order for it to show the correct model in the about this mac?

Oh my goodness. I haven't updated my rig for many many years GA-Z68-UD3H-B3 with a Nvidia card, updating bits and pieces but finally Mojave brought it to it's knees. I researched for weeks and weeks and was hopping between 3 different motherboards. I finally decided to get the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi with i5-9600k. I kept my old machine running so I could build the USB installers etc, so kept my new RX580 in the old machine and hoped I could get the internal UHD630 working first and then move it over once satisfied. I built/rebuilt and again and again clover installers, manually following the Coffee Lake plist and customising it. Trying various UEFI 64 drivers with very little success - I don't think I ever reached the install screen. In despair I tried your method and after unplugging and unplugging my screen managed to get an install on the machine. I learnt so much looking at your configs and my configs but never enough to see where I was going wrong. I woke up this morning and decided to move the RX580 over and start afresh with your pre-install for that card. I wish I'd done this earlier!

 

Long story short, I'm up fully running and I think everything is working. I've just transfered by PCIe Wifi Card with Broadcom BCM94360CD bluetooth and after a reboot works like a dream. I can see my Firefox icon/iphone pop up as soon as I start looking at anything on my phone.

 

Just need to transfer over all my hard drives from the old machine and I'm done.

 

Honestly, can I donate something to you. I was getting so pis*ed off with this. Angry with everyone as I didn't want to install Windows 10 as a final resort so I hadn't bought a paperweight.

 

Let me know. You've saved my life!!

 

Just one final thing. I see that the Pro and Pro Wifi are basically the same board. Could I take a look at screen shot of your USB device tree.

 

My internal F_USB ports are working, as is the USB3 header on the board.

On the back the 4 USB 2.0 seem to be working. But the rest of the USB3.0 under the HDMI socket seem to be dead. Is this right?

 

Thanks again!!

Hi,

 

All USB3.0 ports are working on back plate of motherboard, but USB2.0 is not enabled on those USB3.0 ports on the back of motherboard. So USB3.0 port SS03 just below HDMI port is working, but USB2 wont work on that port. USB2 is intentionally disabled on motherboard to keep port count down. USB2.0 ( HS09, HS10) are enabled on F_USB30 motherboard header for use on computer case, chassis.

Hi 

I am a first time Hackintosher. My build is comprised of a Z390 Aorus Pro (non Wifi), an Intel core I5 8600K and a MSI RX580 Armor OC. I found this Guide quite helpful. I got quite far. However, on my installation attempts, the screen stays at the grey color before the apple logo appears. In the Video you show for the install, the screen I am Stuck on can be seen at 2:29. I am unable to make any progress beyond this point. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could give me some advice.

 

Sincerely 

Black0ut3075

Does hackintosh freeze at grey screen, does system shutdown / restart after grey screen or does Hackintosh go straight to a kernel panic with message?  

 

Also, are using the pre-install folder? If so, check that BIOS settings are exact same as given in guide.  Is USB installer connected to USB2.0 ports on back of motherboard plate? If so then test USB installer in another USB port. 

 

If problem persists after checking above, then recreate USB installer on a different USB storage device.

It freezes at the grey screen. I have followed the guide step by step. the only thing that is different is that I seem to have a slightly different version of the Bios as two options/settings that you mention in your guide are missing in my bios under chipset. I will try and recreate the Installer on a different media and get back to you.

 

Thank you very much for your help.

What options / setting is missing ? Some settings ( DVMT) are only shown after changing other settings in BIOS ( such as enabling internal graphics ) and then rebooting back into BIOS. You on BIOS F9 ?

The two settings that are missing in my version of the Bios are:

 Chipset → DVMT Pre-Allocated → 256M

 Chipset → DVMT Total Gfx Mem → MAX

      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 
                                                                            Best regards
