Mojave System Freeze/Hang (10.14.4 - 10.14.5)

Hi,

I've been suffering from random system hangs. I've just updated to the latest 10.14.5 version of Mojave.
But I've been getting them as early as my first hackintosh on High Sierra... (Back then I've used a Nvidia GTX 970)
Really frustrating as nothing helped so far.

my symptoms:

  • Picture freezes/hangs with the picture visible
  • Audio freezes (no sound or loops)
  • Cannot move the mouse or any other responses.
  • Have to hard reset after such a freeze
  • Totally random, not load related as it can happen when idle, or when just working in chrome etc... sometimes i can last for a day without a freeze and then sometimes it happens every half an hour...

my system:

  • Motherboard: Gigabitye Z68AP-D3 (Rev 1.0 w Legacy bios - !NO UEFI!)
  • CPU: Intel i7-2600K
  • GPU: XFX RX 580 8GB Using Display port (other ports causes black screen during boot)
  • RAM: Kingston 16GB DDR3 1333 MHz
  • SSD: Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB
  • I've uploaded my updated EFI folder here.
  • Kexts also uploaded here. Installed /Library/Extensions/ All the latest versions.

Any help is appreciated:)

MacPro1,1 is not a supported platform for Mojave; you should opt for a properly supported iMac or MacPro SMBIOS instead. I'm not sure that you have proper CPU power management either. I've generated your CPU-specific SSDT that I would suggest you try out after placing it in ACPI/patched along with the attached revised Clover config. Keep a backup of your current config of course, so that you may recall it easily through Clover options menu if required.

ssdt.aml.zip

config.plist.zip

 

This being said, XFX cards are known to cause issues in Hackintoshes so it's highly likely that your problems all come from that.

Eg: https://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7330

 

If you can, try another card (Sapphire instead of XFX for instance).

Hi Thank you! 

 

I know sadly xfx can cause issues but i had this problem since i started using hackintosh with high sierra and with a GTX 970 so that shouldn't be it.

 

I'll try the config plist thank you! :)

Sorry for beeing a n00b... ACPI/patched is in EFI/Clover right? And I just have to copy it there no extra setup needed for it?

Sadly for sure i have no CPU power management set up as I have no idea about it...

Yes ACPI/patched is under the Clover folder. You had obviously deleted this from the EFI folder you uploaded so I could not see any extracted tables (found in ACPI/origin if extracted through F4 at Clover menu) nor any patched tables you may already use.

yes because it was empty, so nothing was there and the zip I've uploaded was my whole EFI folder. 

I'm already using your config.plist and the ssdt.aml under ACPI/Patched and so far so good no freezes, but as I've stated in my op it was random so I'm not sure if this already fixed my issues :)

If your FakeSMC kext contains the sensor PlugIns (I did not check), you can use HWMonitor app to keep an eye on things such as temperatures and CPU power management. I highly recommend it. If the PlugIns are not there, you can simply copy them next to your existing add-on kexts or in a PlugIns subfolder inside FakeSMC.

These are my only kexts: xbdbmkrjhez21.png.877c922d12eb615c5f786382f97c8c39.png which plugins should i exactly use? I have the HWMonitor app which can only show SSD temperature at the moment...

Sadly I still encounter freezes... No special thing to mention about the the temperatures... CPU is usually between 50-65 C

Any other ideas? :)

      I've built several computers including 7 hackintoshes (since snow leopard) and this build has me stumped.
      Have tried many methods on many boards including BIOS tweaks and kexts but every time I do I get to the bootloader choose the USB drive and then I'll get several lines in verbose mode and then the prohibitory sign and stuck. Thoughts?
      Any help is appreciated.

      Boa noite galera!
       
      já a alguns anos que tenho hackintosh, é um I7 6700K em uma Asus Maximus Hero VIII Z170 com GPU RX480 8gb
      Porém desde sempre tenho congelamentos aleatórios, na maioria das vezes quando coloco um filme pra exportar no final cut. mas já aconteceu enquanto via videos ou escutava musicas no spotify e recentemente até ao ligar o computador, mal ligou congelou. ele congela todo não dá pra mexer em nada, só desligando segurando botão power que ele volta.
       
      Me disseram que era gerenciamento de energia, eu baixei a DSDT do meu processador, segui alguns outros tutoriais e ainda nada. não consigo de jeito nenhum resolver esse problema, já instalei varias versões desde o yosemite até o High sierra, e ainda nada. Só esse pequeno detalhe que me desanima do Hack. 
       
      Alguem pode ajudar?

      Buenas a todos, Queria saber si a alguien le pasa algo similar a mi con la nueva version de Mojave o en general con otras versiones.
       
      Recientemente pude instalar Mojave 10.14.2 previa preparacion con (esa app q todos sabemos pero q no me deja escribir aca). El sistema funciona bien luego de instalar los kext de audio y red desde (esa app que todos sabemos pero que no me deja escribir aca)
       
      A medida que iba usando y testeando Mojave me di cuenta de esta falla y sucede solo cuando abro alguna pagina con Safari o tambien ahora descubro que sucede cuando abro Appstore y mientras hago alguna busqueda o simplemente hago scroll con el mouse se bloquea completamente el hack sin poder hacer absolutamente nada ni matar ninguna app. Ahi solo toca reiniciar.
       
      Un ejemplo se da cuando abro esta misma pagina y aparece ese video en la esquina inferior derecha. Logre "solucionarlo" instalando Adblock pero en otras paginas vuelve a suceder ese cuelgue.
       
      Mi pc:
       
      Mother: GA-H81M-H
      Procesador: Core i5 4460  - Video: Intel HD 4600
      Kingston 8gb ram 1333
      clover version 4769.
       
      Aclaro que esto sucede en una instalacion limpia sin ningun plugin instalado de nada. 
       
       
      Bueno cualquier otra info necesaria estoy a su disposicion, gracias.

      Hello
       
      My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips.
       
      Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows.
       
      I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball.
       
      I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button).
       
      I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same.
       
      I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent.
       
      I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail.
       
      What's the best way to troubleshoot this?
       
      Thanks
