Recommended Posts

This is not intended to be a complete and comprehensive installation guide. There are many installation guides on the forum and installing macOS is no different from installing on other desktop builds. Rather, this is supplemental information specific to the my hardware listed below. I hope you find this information useful and this will save you a little time.

 

Hardware

MB: Huananzhi X79-ZD3

CPU: Intel® Xeon E5-2689, 1.2-3.6 GHz

Chipset: Sandy Bridge-E Q65 (C600/C200)

Memory: Samsung 4x8 Gb ECC/REG DDR3, 1866 MHz

Video: Saphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 590

Monitor: BENQ-BL2711U + LG TV 42LF650V

SSD + HDD: NVMe M.2 Samsung 970 EVO 250 Gb + HDD Seagate 2 Tb

WiFi: Fenvi FV-T919 BCM94360CD

Mac model: MacPro6,1

MacOS version tested: Mojave 10.14.6 (18G1012), Big Sur 11.2.3 - see https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/341600-success-huananzhi-x79-zd3-xeon-e5-2689-mojave-10146/?do=findComment&comment=2753122

 

What works?

 

- Video: 4K x 60Hz on BENQ-BL2711U + Full HD x 60Hz on LG TV 42LF650V

- Sound: audio jack + HDMI audio on both monitors

- Wi-Fi (out of the box)

- USB2 && USB3 ports

- LAN

- Bluetooth (out of the box)

 

What does not work?

- Sleep mode: not tested / I don't need

 

BIOS Configuration, what's important:
Bios Version: 4.6.5.4

Legacy USB Support: [Enabled]

XHCI Hand-off: [Enabled]

EHCI Hand-off: [Enabled]

USB Mass Storage Driver Support: [Enabled]

Hyper-threading: [Enabled]

Active Processor Cores: [All]

Serial Port: [Disabled]

Intel(R) VT-d : [Disabled]

Launch CSM: [Enabled]

Boot option filter: [UEFI only]

Launch Storage OpROM policy : [UEFI only]

Launch Video OpROM policy : [UEFI only]

 

Here is what I used to install and configure the system:

Clover: make with Clover Builder https://github.com/Dids/clover-builder/releases
 

Clover configuration:

Clover version: v2.5k r5088

You can get the configuration file and the necessary kexts from the link at the end of the message

Note: you must insert your own SeralNumber && MLB && ROM && SmUUID in the config.plist file.

 

How to use

To make a bootable flash drive, you can use my EFI directory (link at the end of the message). Tested for Mojave 10.14.6 installation.

Hi there,

 First of all I would like to say thanks to you for sharing the experience and your EFI folder. I did install 10.14.5 to my PC successfully.

 

I have the same cpu and use the same ssdt but the turbo speed of my cpu is 3.3Ghz maximum. I also checked the CPU with intel power gadget and my turbo speed with 1 cpu core never passes 3.3Ghz, it should have been 3.6GHz with 1 core if I have not been wrong.

 

My Geekbench score is 10-20% lower than yours both single and multi cores

Hi, @sothink

Thanks for the feedback. 

I think there are two circumstances.

1. You need to check if there are any CPU performance limitations in the BIOS settings.

2. Not all E5-2698 CPU are the same. There are more successful and less successful devices. Some work better in Turboboost, support higher frequencies, others work weaker. I have heard many times that this CPU under full load cannot provide a Turboboost frequency 3.3 GHz for all 8 cores at the same time. My CPU can. 
With a moderate load (The task is to verify the integrity of the dmg package, see report of Intel Power Gadget below), mine can support the following frequencies:

3 cores x 3,6 GHz

2 cores x 3,5 GHz

2 cores x 3,4 GHz

1 core x 3,2 GHz

==========

On average - 3,47 GHz

Unfortunately, not everyone E5-2689 can work in this mode.

Hi InsanelyMac Protégé

 

My Spec:

MB: Main X79 plex HD

CPU: Intel® Xeon E5-2689, 1.2-3.6 GHz

Memory: Samsung 4x16 Gb ECC/REG DDR3, 1600 MHz

Video: Dual RX 470

Mac model: MacPro6,1

MacOS version tested: Mojave 10.14.5

 

I copy your EFI folder, but after boot success apple logo, the screen has black screen, and not go in macOS, keyboard is freeze, can you help me.

This is my EFI, thank you!

It is a highly bad idea. We have completely different hardware, you can not use simple file copy paste. Please refer to the general manual for installation of the system and the solution of arising problems.

How you generated the DSDT file?

I'm running: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -p 'E5-2689' -f 2600 -turbo 3600 -t 115 -l 8
but is giving me: Unknown processor model

You must add a line 

E5-2689,115,1200,2600,3600,8,16

to the file ssdtPRGen.sh-Beta/Data/Haswell.cfg and run ssdtPRGen.sh again.

However, this is not necessary. Use my prepared ssdt.aml - you cannot generate a better file.

Thanks for your reply.

 

My board is an X79-8D, for now I have only Xeon 2689 and 32GB RAM.

 

If I use your EFI folder it works, but the processor speed stuck and 2,6.

 

Using ssdtPRGen.sh I got this message:

I'm very new on this, I will appreciate your help.

@robert0p23, why do you need your own ssdt.dsl? We have identical CPUs and my ssdt.dsl should work fine for you. Check also BIOS settings. There should be no frequency restrictions and Turbo boost should be turned on.

I'm using all your EFI folder, not mine.

I can't see any related turbo settings  on the Bios.

 

Maybe is because I'm using Catalina?

@robert0p23, you could use "all my EFI folder" only if we had a completely identical hardware. However, we have different motherboards. Although similar. Try to delete the file /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/DSDT.aml

If necessary, I will send later detailed BIOS settings related to CPU Power Management.

Thanks for the help, I discovered that my issue was related to my OSX version. I changed The kextstopath values using the Catalina values taken from here:

Hey, thanks for this thread. I was considering they route to get a hack pro config for some time, and this Mobo was quite appealing. Just was wondering, if there is any reason for the fixes in the ACPI section

As well as the CPU info (apart from the CPU type Xeon E5)

I changed the Serial no. and MLB. 

Also, wouldn't it be better to make a SSDT for the USB ports or generate a kext to inject instead of the patch?

As mentioned, just wondering, as the most stuff I tested works as expected

Yes of course. You can also make the so-called Legacy USB kext. All of these different methods give equally good results if they are correctly executed.

With the SSDT or Hackintool I could only filter out USB 2.0 ports

JakubW, Hackintool can configure both USB2 && USB3 ports. It looks like this for me:

Well... EH01 and EH02 are USB 2.0 controllers (EHCI) Which would probably correspond to the chipset used in this board, the USB 3.0 controller is probably VIA and runs over AppleUSBXHCIPCI

I will retry editing the SSDT, as it now is set up correctly for USB 2.0 ports

I don't think the external controller would be an issue here, as the port count looks legit 4 USB 3.0 for front and back as well as 4 USB 2.0 for front and back so the USBInjectAlll kext doesn't affect this controller

BTW. Did you set up iMessage an Face Time? I can’t get it to work, probably because neither the WiFi card nor the LAN nic get correct BSD. Ethernet gets en1 and WiFi gets en0, none gets set to builtin. Did you had such issues?

Yes, I configured these services immediately after installing the system. But I do not use them.

OK, thakns for all the replies so far. I eventually worked it around with the NullEthernet.kext and SSDT

Now I disassembled the origin DSDT and added the generic LAN Builtin Patch, so it looks cleaner. Anything You changed in the DSDT that was added to Patched before?

1. LAN Builtin Patch is not needed, the LAN works like a native with RealtekRTL8111.kext

2. DSDT.aml was made to fix basic errors in the PC BIOS; as a matrix for applying CPU Power Management and NVME-Desktop-icon patches; to simplify Clover setup.

 

Of course, everything can be done in other ways, you can experiment.
