4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Working in Progress

 

I want  that my Catalina  runs smooth

 

I run Catalina beta on MBr HFS+ (only one partition)

 

So what we can do ?

 

0. I have gained my Intel HD3000 QE/CI working

   - i have used Intel HD3000 High Sierra Kexts

    Done

 

1. Reduce size

  -  I have used monolingual and I have deleted all unwanted languages

  - i have deleted unwanted Speech voices

  - i have delete unwanted Fonts ( Japanese , Chinese, Emoji ...) 

  - i have delete unwanted Templates ( again speech voices)

  My Cat OS have been shrinked  from 16 Gb to 9,96 Gb

  Done

 

2. Disable all unwanted Deamons and Agents

  -  I'm looking for disable all Debug deamons or Agents running which are slowing my Os

   Still seeking ....

 

What's else ?

I saw you use HDD: 1.024 Gb SATA3.

How about to use SSD 120G or 240G, I use 120G SSD, it's enough for system to me.

 

Never feel Catilina running slowly:), but HDD is really running so slowly to me.:(

Hi,

thanks for the hint, but ...

I have an 512Gb SSD , i use it on external USb3 case to make experiments.

 

My effort is to run well on Hdisk. ( i have installed on Sata Hdisk from Lion - Mojave and are all fine tuned to give full max speed on old Hw) 

This is why i have installed Catalina on MBR HFS+.

 

It's a beta and probably almost buggy , but i like to find out  how to give it better ...

 

For the moment,   on Sata Hdisk Cat is slower than Mojave 

 

See Ya

      Hi all
       
      I've got a fully working install of Catalina 10.15.5 using OpenCore 0.5.9 and I've managed to get everything working perfectly. It's my first PC Build ever (Let alone Hackintosh) so I'm pretty pleased that I've managed to get everything up and running so far, including Thunderbolt 3 (with hotplug), Sidecar, onboard HDMI Audio, Wifi/BT pairing across both OS (Windows 10 and MacOS). The only thing that now bugs me is the time taken to boot from the Opencore picker to my login screen. It's not super slow by any means, but with my specs I believe it should be faster. Here is what I'm running:
       
      Intel Core i7 10700K
      Gigabyte Z490 Vision D
      Noctua NH-D15S
      Corsair LPX 3000MHz 32GB RAM (2x16GB)
      Adata XPG SX8200 1TB NVMe SSD (MacOS)
      Adata XPG SX8200 1TB NVMe SSD (Windows 10)
      Crucial BX200 1TB SSD (Storage)
      Crucial MX500 2TB SSD (Storage)
      Asus 8GB Dual Arez RX580
      Corsair RM650
      Fenvi HB1200
       
      Windows boot is pretty sharp - Usually under 10secs. MacOS on the other hand usually is in the region of ~70secs. When I first installed Catalina it would boot super quick, but it's gotten more and more sluggish over the last few weeks. Is there anything I can do to speed it up? I can attach my EFI if needed.
       
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone,
      I found a guide on how to install Catalina on Lenovo M920q, everything works well but the installation is freezing up.
      The USB bootable drive is a recovery one with internet based installation. The internet is working well on the pre-installation setup (I tested it, when you can use the utilities).
      The installation is freezing whether I am installing the macOS or not.
      I've attached my EFI partition so you can check if there's anything to add.
      Will realy appreciate any kind of help (quit noob to the whole thing).
      Thanks in advance and stay safe!
       
      NOTE: I did followed up the troubleshooting guide of OpenCore installation forum and the answer was to add the  NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to the kexts and configure it on the .plist file.
      This is the original EFI folder: EFI.zip
      Thats the one with the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext added: EFI.zip

      Hello guys!
      I have a Asus Zenbook with the following characteristics:
      Model: ASUS Zenbook UX310UQ
      CPU: Intel Core i7-7500U CPU @ 2.70GHz
      IGPU: Intel HD Graphics 620
      RAM: 8GBx2 => 16GB RAM Bus 2133
      Wifi: Replaced with DW1560.
      Clover: Clover 5120
      OS: 10.15.6
      UEFI/LEGACY: UEFI
      Storage: SSD Crucial 500GB
      Everything works fine!

      I have the WiFi/Bluetooth chipset DW1560 (DCM20702A) and a Logitech K380 Keyboard and magic mouse. My Hackintosh is sleeping fine only problem is that it won't wake from sleep on key presses. I already tested this USB port with a normal keyboard and the result was that it wakes up my Hackintosh on key presses. And in system settings the Bluetooth wake option is enabled, too.
      Has someone an idea where the problem could be or which additional settings I have to verify?
      Thank you all

      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
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi.  A possible solution is here, but I am NOT offering any support for this.

      News
      In light of the recent WWDC, we will begin testing the functionality of our EFI on macOS 11 for this device with the latest developer preview Version Info
      Features and Overview
      Now Compatible with 10.15.6 Please leave feedback with issues or w/o Comitted to Updating up to OS 11 Multitouch Trackpad Support 4K @60 Hz Fixed Bluetooth and Wifi Stability Issues Preformance and Power Management Additional Patches for 4K Display updated for 15.6 rev 1 Sleep Wake is functional for some models ----if screen glitches on wake or reopen lid. If this is a bother just disable sleep. This is issue is resolved in Big Sur Bugs
      Some models may experience screen split in half. If so disable. USB devices eject (external) No Internal Mic What Works
      Everything minus sleep issue above, internal microphone. (audio is fine, headphones / usb mic fine, just not laptop mic) POST
      run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
      Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. You can easily view all the DSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable.
      Unsupported Wifi
      Make sure you are using DW1560 or 1820a for wifi or else there is a risk of KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other Styling
      This guide is designed to be literally as thorough as possible to appeal all types of users. It does not cover complex topics like undervolting etc etc only to provide a completely functional system
      Notes
      Never tested USB C except for charging, USB, works great (not sure about DispOut) 4K model has sleep wake issues occasionally, 1080P is fully functional BIOS
      Disable Secure Boot Disable Vt-d Recommended: Clean Install (Preinstall steps)
      Format a USB (16GB) as Journaled and then proceed to download the latest Catalina Installer Patcher Application. Download the latest Catalina installer from within the Patcher App, and select to download a new copy and install to your USB device Download the clover configurator application and mount the EFI of the USB partition, then copy the contents of the Files linked above to A new EFI Folder (that you create) within the EFI partition. ** This is because the App Store installers will often not download a full installer, just an truncated version that downloads the installer files from the interent while installing. Thus, they're not bootable from a USB as they're not complete. That is why you should use this method to make sure the installer is usable for bootable media.
      Boot From USB
      Use f9, copy EFI folder to efi partition of your usb. after installation complete copy EFI to your ssd. Boot Entry Setup
      Reccomend using windows to find a tool to add a UEFI bios entry to boot EFI/Boot/bootx64 Credits
      @MaLd0n for DSDT Patches and support (HUGE SHOUTOUT) Original Kexts Authors Clover Headphones and Audio
      All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio Finished!
      Congratulations, there really aren't any more steps that are required. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
