Hello guys!

 

so Catalina is public now!

 

should we go with this new System Update?

i'm on 10.14.6 atm,

 

anyone already tried?

 

 

 

 


wait 20mins as I’m upgrading right now via a test drive to make sure it does it clean and I will report back after I’m done.

I Just upgraded to Catalina and it was flawless. Everything is working perfectly just make sure you don’t have any 32bit apps installed as they will no longer work.

 

@gino8080 go for it buddy. It’s a perfect upgrade :)

they were already all up to date for myself but I did it on my test drive first with the original efi I posted and It was flawless. Doesn’t harm to update all your kexts and clover beforehand though. :)

Vai tranquillo Gino....... :-) unica cosa spero tu non abbia. acrobat dc caricato con adobe zii perché...ti annulla la "registrazione" e te lo blocca...fino a che non rilasceranno il zii 4.4.5 xD

Thanks you all guys and thanks @AudioGod !

 

so I'll go with update and let you "update" too ! :D

 

Can I go directly through AppStore , download and then install right?

 

Maybe can usefull for someone, to check for any 32bit app installed, go to 

System preferences / Software / Applications

and order by the column 64bit 

every columns says NO is an old 32 bit app (for now I just found old setups, keygens, and Adobe {censored} :P)

 

(this is NOT my system preferences image)

I wanted to update today, but there are 3 apps that I certainly need, and I guess I will have to wait for them to release 64bit version.

 

The one is MathType, and I need it for writing math equations, the other is EPSON's software for my printer and the other is for USB-AC68 WiFi adapter that I have :/

Me too. I'll have to wait a month or so while some software vendors get their apps Catalina-ready before I can upgrade.

 

It's good to know that our EFIs are working perfectly though!

@hackinbot yeap, I said I would too, but I did not :/ I was impatient :P I have my MacBook Pro on MacOS 10.13.6, so I will do my equations there. Epson updated its drivers, and for the USB-AC68, I just use Ethernet so I'm good :)

 

The update was great, I left my computer unattended to cook me dinner and after I returned Catalina was waiting for me :P

It seems that this is no longer available in Catalina; thus you have to rely on a 3rd party application to be able to share files with your older Mac... :mad:

Hello All,

I hope your all enjoying the new update of Catalina?

ive been sniffing around online and I’ve noticed that a lot of people out there are having bare troubles updating too 10.15.

That makes me feel good in a evil Kind of way as it shows how solid my EFI actually is, I didn’t even have to make a updated EFI folder for catalina as the original one is working so perfectly.

Now I’m just waiting for the day the 5700xt gets supported and I’m slapping that baby in my system...lol

Enjoy my friends and happy hacking :)

 

@larabee you good buddy?

@MaLd0n you are awesome dude, 100% pure genius.....Respect  :thumbsup_anim:

Yo, @AudioGod I'm doing pretty well with Catalina so far. rock solid. I get the new Final Cut Pro updates and everything is so much faster than before. Watch some Apple TV and everything works smoothly so far with only one problem: Sidecar with Radeon VII. I have black screen with sidecar. I unplug all of my graphic card and use HD630 then it works with SMBIOS iMac. On my iMac Pro, it gives me black screen. Properly because of HEVC encoding not working properly? @MaLd0n, do you have any idea why Sidecar is not working on mine? 

 

@ilcondannato I use the same thing as you do. Love Capture One on my Sony A7III raw file. Have you updated to the latest final cut pro? That helps me save a lot of time because it's much faster.

I love C1... think is the best Raw converter that I've use... I've been try Lr...DxO...Aperture...and many many more...but, for my photo style (wedding ph and aerial with drone), I think C1 is the best! :-D .... Final Cut...I'm on 10.4.7 and ...it goes like F1 car LooooL :-D

Yep, seems your EFI is spot on .. I had a decent EFI in place for a while with a single fault of a hang needing a reboot randomly. could be days between them ... yours seems to have fixed that ..  Its been perfect for weeks.

 

Upgrading to Catalina was seamless and problem free ... updated the kexts i use and hit the update button .. 30 mins later im typing this from 10.15.. 

 

Good work .. thanks for the effort ... appreciated.

I've read elsewhere that sidecar is not working on hackintoshes running imacpro SMBIOS (probably because of lack of T2 chip). The iMac19,1 doesn't have a T2, so sidecar seems to work with that SMBIOS.

 

iMac19,1 is probably a closer fit to our hardware setup, but I think we moved over to iMacPro to get away from OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi. I would probably prefer to be on iMac19,1 if we could get it work reliably.

Lack of T2 and the fact that HEVC is done from the CPU in iMac Pro ... I don't really need sidecar, so just curious to see if there's any work around. No biggie :)

You will need to use anything other than mac that has T2 chips (imac pro and the new Cheese grater Mac Pro). Apple will look for that chip to do encoding. I heard the xeon in Apple iMac Pro can do the encoding in its core too. That's why we have this problem.

Yeah, I wonder if @MaLd0n knows of a fix for Sidecar other then using something like SMBios iMac 19.1 cos it’s kinda useful for me while editing audio or VSTi.
@MaLd0n  Any Thoughts buddy?

      Faz pouco menos de uma semana que estou tentando dar boot usando um pendrive no lenovo g40-80, mas todas as vezes que tento algum kernel panic diferente acontece, não entendo tanto de hackintosh mas pelo que li tanto aqui no forum quanto em outros sites me fizeram constatar que talvez o erro seja falta de kexts, alguem possui os kexts para esse notebook ??
       
      primeiro erro que tive era porque estava usando um pendrive de 8gb, o recomendado é 16 no minimo pelo oque vi, fui la, comprei um de 32, mudou o kernel panic mas era só um dos erros resolvidos.
       
      especificações dele:
      Processador: Intel Core i3-5005U
      Grafico: Intel HD Graphics 5500
      originalmente ele vinha com um hd de 500gb e 4gb de ram, mudei pra um ssd de 128gb e 8 gb de ram
       
      ja percebi que unico problema desse notebook é que a placa de wifi não vai funcionar, mas quanto a isso não tem problema pois se conseguir mesmo instalar o mac eu comprou outra

      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 F10, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8700k, 9600k, 9700k, 9900k

      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, 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.

      PREAMBLE - BEFORE YOU START 
       
      Here detailed, is all the  steps towards building a successful and stable Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh, if you are a first time Hackintosher, this guide will have you quickly up and running with the Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh. To rule out potential problems from the go,
      only have the disc that you plan to install macOS Mojave connected to the Aorus Pro, disconnect any other Windows / Linux or data drives, external drives from your Aorus Pro. Windows / Linux and data drives can be connected after successful installation of macOS Mojave
      If you have more than 16 GB of memory, then install macOS Mojave with just 16GB or RAM installed, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1  and DDR4_B1.
       
      This build has a recommended Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3 with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2.  ( ensure WiFi card is seated properly in PCIe slot and cable is firmly attached to WiFi card and motherboard header F_USB2 ) 
       
      If using the Corsair H100i v2 AIO cooler with USB cable connected to motherboard header F_USB1, you will need to enable hot-patch ( explained in guide ) in config.plist for working sleep, wake from sleep will only work by pressing Power Button.
       
      Install macOS Mojave on its own physical drive, so do not try and install macOS Mojave onto a free partition on a disc that contains Windows.
      Remove any Thunderbolt cards, Thunderbolt card can be reinserted after installation.  Double check your BIOS settings are the same as this guide. 
       
       
       
      Following are unsupported / problematic
       
      • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave )
       
      • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( ensure you update Plus drive to latest firmware to avoid problems )
       
      • XFX Radeon RX 580
       
      • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave
       
       
       
      Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ?
      A - Possibly, though you may have to create your own USBPorts fix. 
       
      Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ?
      A - Possibly, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly. 
       
      Q - Can I use my AMD Vega Card ?
      A - Yes, AMD Vega card's  will work with this guide, but If you plan to use a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 then please read @AudioGod ==>post  regarding the Sapphire Pulse 56.

      PART 4 – INSTALL CLOVER ON THE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER 
       
      Make Mojave USB flash drive installer bootable.( Video below )
       
      • Launch Clover application, double click.
      • Click Continue → Continue → Continue 
      • Click Change Install Location button.
      • Click Install macOSMojave USB installer → Continue

      PART 5 – CUSTOMIZE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER FOR AORUS Z390 PRO
       
      Replace Clover EFI folder with PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip   ( Video below ) 
       
      • Install ESP Mounter Pro v1.9
      • Using ESP Mounter Pro, Mount ESP on disk2s1 ( Your disk name may be different )
       

       

       
       
       
      • Open mounted EFI partition found on desktop
      • Copy all the contents from Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder
      • Replace USB EFI folder with all the contents inside the Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder.
       
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 6 – INSTALL MAC OS MOJAVE ON INTERNAL DRIVE
       
      INSTALL NOTE
       
      ENSURE BIOS: Above 4G Decoding is set to Disabled 
      if Above 4G decoding is set to enabled then macOS Mojave install will freeze at 2 mins remaining and will not shut down properly!!!!
       
      Please be patient during install, so when install gets to 2 or 3 mins remaining then it may take extra time. Be ready to boot from UEFI USB installer by pressing F12 when install initiates restarts. 

      • INSERT USB INSTALLER INTO THE USB 2.0 PORT  
       
       
       Here is a walkthrough of the full process using the macOS Mojave USB Installer on the Aorus Z390 Pro. 
       
       
       
       
      • Power on PC and press F12• Choose bootable USB drive from boot menu.
       
       
       
      • Install macOS Mojave to internal solid state or hard drive.
       
       
       
      When system returns to the Clover boot menu choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      At next restart, press F12 and boot from external UEFI USB device and choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      Proceed with macOS Mojave install
       
       
      macOS Mojave is now installed, but it can only boot at this moment thanks to FakeSMC and Clover on the Mojave USB flash drive installer.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 7 – MAKE AORUS Z390 PRO INTERNAL DRIVE BOOTABLE
       
      Make internal drive bootable ( Video below )
       
      So far, the Aorus Pro can only boot the internal system drive with the aid of the Mojave USB Installer.
      To boot from the internal system drive without the installer: 
       
      Download and install Clover with RC Scripts on target volume.  
      Copy the EFI folder from inside Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.         
       

       
       
       
      • Remove USB Mojave installer and shut down and restart.
       
      Aorus Hackintosh should now be able to boot to macOS Mojave, Done, well almost ! 
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 8 – ENABLE IMESSAGES & FACETIME 
       
       
      // UPDATE 21st MAY 2019
       
      Possibly Clover Configurator now automatically populates correct values for working iMessages when you select an SMBIOS.  
       
       

       
       
      After selecting SMBIOS, example iMac19,1 for Aorus Pro with RX580 ( image above ) then go to Apple and ensure you have the "serial number is not valid " message. Done!
       
      If you still have problems connecting to iMessage, test and ensure that AirDrop is working, then follow instructions inside spoiler. 

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 9 – ENABLE TRIM for Solid State Flash Drives
       
      Open Terminal and enter the following command:
      sudo trimforce enable
