I used your pre-installation EFI as both my Pre and Post installation. I don't need to do anything with SSDT for my USB to work because my board is within the USB limit of Mac OS. Besides, the USB patch from config.plist already unlocked the USB 3 ports. Everything went as smoothly as it should on a real Mac. 

I'm still tweaking the voltage of my Vega 56 to make it runs a bit cooler.

 

 

Was just looking at your board.  Do you have a WiFi card with Bluetooth connected to F_USB header, also is F_USB30 attached to CASE, those USB ports on CASE could exceed the limit.

If in doubt, try a port discovery,  see guide below:

 

 

Thanks for letting me know that EFI pre-installation worked on your machine.

Hi, 

 

I got two hard drives for my machine, one  for testing. I noticed that Country Code was set US on the test drive, as far as I was aware it should be GB or DE.  As far as I know, AirportBrcmFixup.kext for my Wi-Fi card defaults to US, so I found the way to change country code. I updated guide with instructions on this. 

 

OPTIONAL: Set Wi-Fi Country Code

 

 

 

Resolved the issue, finally.  Regarding the speed problem with the BCM94360CD, this is where some of my inexperience shows up, after trying varying ways to get my 5GHz band working as it should, stopping the high pings and complete slowing down of my connection to a crawl, etc.  I reseated the card, rebooted my router, still no avail, then I realized I had overlooked placing the AirportBrcmFixup.kext into my Other folder on my EFI partition.  I guess I thought this card just worked out of the box so it didn't occur to me.  Once the kext was installed, and I rebooted my speed went way up where it should be normally.  And more importantly stayed there. Now to change the country code. :)

I don't use any of those connectors and stay within the USB limit. I tried hooking up my case USB ports and my Monitor USB ports into the USB 3 headers on my board and confirm they are all working just fine (I did not measure the bandwidth of them anyway) 

I think it's because I have the USB patches applied?

I will install a thunderbolt add-on card from Gigabyte soon.

What Wifi card do you recommend for airdrop?

Sometime when macOS is updated it can beak the ports limit patch, and RehabMan mentioned " The port limit patch should not be used as a permanent solution. There is now clear evidence that using it causes other data beyond what is evidently a fixed size array to be clobbered. The result is strange behavior by the USB drivers when the port limit is exceeded." Pointer >> USB ports limit etc..

 

RECOMMENDED WIFI CARD → ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI With Bluetooth 4.0 PCI-Express (PCI-E) BCM943602CS

Thank you so much, I will get my SSDT at a later point because I'm on mission critical using that hackintosh (it's stable enough.) I've had other builds that eject USB randomly when the max ports are reached.

I've just ordered one of the BCM943602CS card for cheap like $20 including the PCIExpress X1 adapter.

UPDATED: 
I've removed some ports in my SSDT. Here is my Board Layout with USB ports mapped

tbh i'm not sure as I don't have the  i7 9700K, I tried a quick test and changed to iMac 19,1 SMBIOS but on boot got an unsupported macOS error, use previous EFI from guide and you can easily provide the missing CPU info. See "About My Mac" in my other guide on how to do this: 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been attempting to change this for my i7 9700k, as well, to 19,1 iMac without much luck.  The unsupported macOS error.  I am a little confused what was meant by use previous EFI in your post.  Was that to get past the "unsupported" boot error or was that only to edit the About My Mac section?  (The AMM guide worked great. :))   I have searched for a solution, and nothing online has been successful for me so far.

Hi Hifi33

 

As far as I am aware, new iMac 19,1 SMBIOS requires a special build of macOS Mojave, hence the unsupported macOS error when using SMBIOS 19,1.  In meantime, change "Unknown CPU in About My Mac " see my previous guide link below:

 

Update

 

SMBIOS support for 19,1 in Mojave 10.14.5 beta.

Possibly going to be supported in Mojave 10.14.5

 

 

 

 

I've tried the beta build and go through without any issue using iMac 19,1 SMBIOS, but things are a little unstable (not sure if it's because hackintosh or a beta build)

Thanks, good to know. I expect that Clover, kext updates etc.. will smooth things out in 10.14.5

@glasgood 

I used the SMBios iMac 18.3 and whenever I export using Final Cut pro + H264 format, the hackintosh completely freezes.

Can you help me out? 

 

Please attach your EFI folder. I’m using SMBIOS for Mac Mini 2018 and FCP is working. 

 

I’m meantime, check BIOS settings are set for:

 

Chipset  Internal Graphics  Enabled

Peripherals  Initial Display Output  PCIe 1 Slot

Chipset  DVMT Pre-Allocated  64M ( try 128 )

Thanks a lot for your response. I used the same EFI as yours. It's working fine but whenever I export using H264 it freezes up. Exporting using Apple Pro Res is fine. 

Even  though other softwares report that Hardware Encoding is supported.

Updated: 

I managed to get it to export H264 but it's still slower than a real mac by a large margin by  ticking Load VBios and Inject Intel then add 0x3E920003 to ig-platform-id in Graphics 

Then Adobe Media Encoder and FCPX starts using the iGPU to encode H264

Just wondering why you'r macx-video reports 27" (iMac Mid 2017) with an image of a Mac Mini. I ran macx-video on my hack and Hardware Info is normal.

Glasgood, have you kept EmuVariableUEFI-64.efi off your system? I removed it to try and clear up the memory allocation error on reboot and today iMessages suddenly stopped working, so I put it back. Just a heads up in case anybody else runs into the same issue.

Hello,

 

EmuVariableUEFI-64.efi is only needed to activate iMessage's, once you have iMessage's working you can delete EmuVariableUEFI-64.efi. If you persist with EmuVariableUEFI-64.efi after you have activated iMessage's you will have intermittent memory allocation errors. 

 

Just to be clear on this

 

Step 1

 

Place EmuVariableUEFI-64.efi inside EFI /Clover /Drivers shutdown and restart machine. 

 

Step 2

 

Then login to iMessage's, Facetime, icloud and then mount EFI partition and delete 

EmuVariableUEFI-64.efi. 

 

Step 3

 

Then shutdown and restart machine

 

Step 4 

 

Test iMessage's, Facetime ( Will be working without EmuVariableUEFI-64.efi)

 

------------------------------------

 

Sometimes if you make changes to your hackintosh EFI folder, you may have to reactivate iMessage's. 

 

 

Best!

I followed your guide and choose mac mini because it uses the coffee lake processor just like mine. Everything works fine but I have problem with H264 hardware encoding. 

I tried the iMac and it works. I think adding 0x3E920003 to ig-platform-id makes it works.

Thank you very much! I've followed your guide and everything is working like a charm!

 

This is my first desktop Hackintosh and with your guide it was pretty straightforward :)

 

My build:

- Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro

- Intel i5-8400 (leaving space for future upgrades)

- 2x Crucial Ballistic Sport Lt 8GB

- Kingston A400 SSD Sata3 (Hackintosh)

- Adata XPG Gammix S10 M.2 PCIe SSD. (Windows 10)

- Thermaltake Tt V200 and Thermaltake Smart RGB 600w PSU

- TP-Link AC1900 Archer T9e Wi-Fi

- Using iGPU because I'm still waiting for the GPU to arrive (Sapphire Pulse RX580 8GB)

 

One comment: The XPG Gammix S10 M.2 PCIe SSD DIDN'T WORK OK for MacOS. After installation (that took a while) my mouse was laggy every time I copied a file. Did a Benchmark with Blackmagic and found that the SSD was running as low as 40 MB/s for reading...

Tested with another partition in Windows and was working correctly (like 1500MB/s), so I changed the Mac installation to the SATA drive and the Windows to the M.2.

Second comment: I've tested FHD video editing with integrated graphics and was pretty surprised how well it did to manage everything.

 

Big thanks from Argentina!

Hey man,

 

I have a problem with my USB ports when booting into macOS with the internal SSD. Both my mouse and keyboard aren't being picked up, but when booting through the USB installer it's completely fine. Have any suggestions? Thanks.

Do you have Aorus Z390 Pro motherboard?  I suspect not.  My SSDT mapping for Aorus Z390 has disabled those USB ports on your motherboard. Remove SSDT from Clover / ACPI / Patched.

 

PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI ( USB Installer )  has no SSDT for USB ports fix. Thats why you have working USB ports via ports limit patch & USBInjectAll.kext using USB installer. 

 

POST-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI, it has SSDT for USB ports fix. 

 

Hence why I suspect you have a different motherboard.  Delete SSDT-UIAC.aml from Clover / ACPI / PAtched and follow guide below for USB ports fix.

I do indeed have the exact motherboard you have, Z390 Aorus Pro. I did my own custom USB map but for some reason, it just disables all of the USB ports when I boot directly from my SSD.

I have other SSDT's with different port mappings attached at bottom of guide. Give them a try.

- Using iGPU because I'm still waiting for the GPU to arrive (Sapphire Pulse RX580 8GB Sapphire Nitro+ RX 590 SE) 

 

Finally arrived!

 

I've found a brand new Sapphire Nitro+ RX590 SE cheaper than the 580 and plugged it in:

 

I've had an issue with my monitor...It's a quite old LED monitor with only VGA connector. Previously I was using a passive adapter to HDMI. When I connected this to the Sapphire GPU it just restarted my PC, both in hackintosh or windows. After that I attached my livingroom TV that has hdmi inputs and it worked normally. 

 

Do you know if there's an adapter that may work?

 

Since it is an RX 590 should I use your same clover made for RX 580?

 

Thank you very much!

Hi,

Unfortunately I don’t have recommendations for adapters. Clover folder should be good for RX590.

      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

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac.
       
      Features:
      - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process.
      - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers).
      - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (10+gb if you use catalina or newer versions, if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly).
      - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too.
      - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal.
      - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code.
      - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk.
      - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you.
      - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool.
      - Autaomated Open Core and clover EFI folder isntaller
      - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update.
       
      Features that are planned for future versions:
      - Support for other languages, at least Italian.
       
      # Requirements:
      - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer).
      - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer.
      - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Updated 01/06/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update - 01/06/2020 - 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 010620.zip  - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT EFI
      Clover Z390 Pro Polaris EFI 010620.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) DSDT 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 - 01/06/2020
      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 059 Z390 Pro 19,1 010620.zip - OpenCore v0.5.9, SMBios iMac19,1
      OpenCore 059 Z390 Pro 1,1 010620.zip - OpenCore v0.5.9, 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 0.5.9. 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 :
      
       
       
        Default USB Setup For All OpenCore EFIs
      
       
      
       
       

       
       
      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.

      To Create Your Own Patched DSDT Message @MaLd0n using the link bellow
      https://www.olarila.com/forum/17-dsdt-patch-requests/
      (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)

      So I've attempted to install MacOS Catalina on my Asus ZenBook Pro 15 (UX550GE) for a while and one time I got it to work, using the ##### method and adding a SSDT file that I'm not sure where I found. Now I've tried following the same steps I did before and they didn't work. I've attached my EFI folder and will attach my verbose error log. It now gets stuck on the part I attached. I'm a total complete noob and the time I got it to work I can't really explain how I got it except for luck, but I would really like to get this working. My system details are on my profile, hope someone can help me. I'm trying to install MacOS on an SSD, I read that Catalina no longer needs any patching for SSDs but not quite sure. Thank you so much. (EDIT: I used to get an AppleBusPowerController error or something and now that I've tried to boot without Lilu and WhatverGreen (because they gave me a memory protection error (0,2) and ejected a MicroSD, it seems like there is "progress". Just moments after that screenshot my PC shows me 3 blurred Apple logos side to side (briefly) and then a blank black screen).
