Thanks for putting this up @AudioGod. You can also add an RX560 to the list of working GPUs - just noticed my RX560 doesn't show up in the list of PCI devices, but it seems to work fine and shows under Graphics/Displays. I've always had CSM support enabled in my bios without issue, so not sure if that has any effect on the build stability.

Awesome Buddy I will add the RX 560 to the list :)

you sure it’s not hiding at the bottom of your PCI List?

Yeah it's definitely not there:

Try injecting it in Clover and see if it shows up then.

run LuxMark before you inject it and after and compare scores.  

 

Do remember though that the PCI info has no bearing on how your system runs as I’m sure you already know.

Wifi cards won’t show up on it either but we did that on purpose.

Great topic @AudioGod!

 

And thanks a lot for supporting me to get my system up and running again! :D

 

Small tips for those who experience the following issues:

 

1. If you have TP-Link Archer T6E PCI-E WiFi card and your system does not recognise your WiFi card with this EFI, then download and add to your kexts AirportBrcmFixup, that will make your WiFi work again.

 

2. If you have i7 9700K CPU (8700K works fine) but your system shows that you have i9 then in your Clover Configurator go to Cpu -> Type and add 0x0705 code and it will show i7, like so:

3. if you are annoyed by the stretched Apple logo when you boot your computer, it is an easy fix, you have to put your screen's resolution in Clover Configurator -> Gui -> Screen Resolution like so:

@AudioGod, please let me know how can I wake up my computer only from power button and not from any other input device?

 

Thanks!

SLEEP  – Resolving Instant Wake

 

Resolve Instant Wake From Sleep caused by the Corsair H100i V2 AIO Cooler

 

To enable wake using mouse and keyboard the Corsair H100i v2 USB cable must be disconnected from motherboard header F_USB1 

 

 

If you want to keep the Corsair H100i v2 USB cable connected then enable the patch in config.plist, instruction below. 

Hackintosh will then sleep, but can only wake using power button.

 

IF USING CORSAIR H100i v2, OR IF YOU HAVE INSTANT WAKE FROM SLEEP PROBLEM 

THEN

ENABLE PATCH --> XPRW change Method(GPRW...

and download --> SSDT-GPRW.aml and place inside EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched

@AudioGod, cool! I will try it now!

 

UPDATE:

Nope, I prefer continue doing skydiving and scuba, feels safer than this! hahaha

 

If anyone want to try, be my gust! :D

Awesome. Thanks for continuing the Z390 Aorus Pro discussion. I’ll continue troubleshooting later this weekend. 

 

Hey Buddy,

Change your DSDT over to the new one for your GPU listed in my guide :)

yeah , the diff between Vega and RX DSDT is just 4 lines removed (EGP1) from Vega DSDT

 

Is this cosmetic or functional code ?

 

Anyway, big thanks @AudioGod and @MaLd0n

Cosmetic but perfect is perfect. :)

If Your Not Using File Vault Then Please Disable Hibernate

disablehibernate.command

 

What exactly this script does?

 

Because I'm not using FileVault, but in the script there are command about

 

Quote

sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0
sudo pmset -a standby 0
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

 

does this change something in sleep/awake or external PSU management?

      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.

      Hey everybody, I decided to try to make a Hackintosh because I had some mac programs from when I switched to Windows. I'm trying to do it vanilla but this is my first time. After some trial and error and Google I've gotten to where the Apple logo and the progress bar shows but then it freezes and all power is cut to all of the usb ports. I've attached what it looks like with the verbose flag and here's the link to my CLOVER folder:
      https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1FDc_qLOVET64OWi9YzwDopsM1i-7nGS2?usp=sharing
       
      And here are my specs:
      Motherboard: Gigabyte b75m-d3h
      CPU: Intel i5 3570 (Ivy Bridge)
      GPU: Nvidia GTX 1660 (I've disabled it in my config.plist)

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F11L, 9900k with a 5700 XT but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8600K, 8700, 8700K, 9400K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K, 9900KS (All KF Models work but use SMBios iMacPro1,1 instead)
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, RX 5500, 5500 XT, 5600, 5600 XT, 5700, 5700 XT
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
       
       
       @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install. (glasgood put the guide together for the Z390 Pro but the two boards are so alike that you can follow this guide with no problems at all using the Z390 Master)

      EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F11L or Higher to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      Z390AORUSMASTER.F11l.zip  - Aorus Z390 Master Bios Firmware F11L 
       
      CLOVER & OPENCORE EFIs 
      Current EFIs Change-Log Updated 02/11/2020
       
       
      Clover EFI Update v5120 - 04/08/2020 - Use with Bios revision F11L or Higher Only or Replace with the older F11c/F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios
       
      EFI Clover VEGA Navi 030820.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT etc), Radeon VII DSDT SMBios 19,1 EFI
      EFI Clover Polaris NVIDIA 030820.zip - RX500 Polaris Series (RX590, 580, 570 etc) SMBios 19,1 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 v0.6.3 EFI Major Update - 02/11/2020 (Big Sur Ready)
      I 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.
       

      OC 063 19,1 Z390 Master EFI 021120.zip - OpenCore v0.6.3, SMBios iMac19,1
      OC 063 1,1 Z390 Master EFI 021120.zip - OpenCore v0.6.3, 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 0.6.0 so please use the new Config.plist instead.
       
       
      PlistEdit Pro.zip - PlistEdit Pro (use to edit 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 F11L Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :
      
       
       
       
      CFG Unlock (MSR) F11L BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 
      Highly recommended if your using a Vega 56/64, Radeon VII or Navi GPU

      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)

      10302020 - Big Sur Beta 11.01 update, using OC .0.6.3, no issues but update took a long time, just wait
      10152020 - Big Sur Beta 10 update, using OC .0.6.3
      09302020 - Big Sur Beta 9 update, no issues.

      I have moved on with this and do not use my HP G2 for Hackintosh, its mainly used for Kali Linux for Packet analysis these days, with that said I am using the HP 840 G3 for Hackintosh. I transitioned to OpenCore and Big Sur for this laptop but feel free to continue to ask questions. 
       
      My G3 has the BCM84360CS2 mod, I got the module from eBay for $10 and the adapter for $10 off amazon.
       
      Big Sur Beta 5 is working using the below EFI folder. OpenCore 6.1.0 and latest kexts
       
      Method: USB Big Sur installation
      Create an Big Sur Beta5 or Catalina USB installer (google is your friend here, plenty of tutorials there) Mount the EFI partition of your USB installer using Clover Configurator Copy the EFI file attached here. Boot your laptop using F9 and choose the USB installer and follow the prompts  
       
       
      Catalina and old method in the Spoiler
       
       
      Credits go to Jake Lo for creating this EFI file. I did make some changes to his, this one is Open Core 6.1.0 and latest Lilu.kext and WhatEverGreen.kext
