[SUCCESS] HUANANZHI X79-ZD3 + Xeon E5-2689 [Mojave 10.14.6]

26 posts in this topic

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)

 

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.

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.

You mean Generic USB Kext for USB 3.0?

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.

      Hi there,
       
      If anyone could help I'd be very grateful, I'm trying to move from Clover to OC but have hit a brick wall for the last 2 days.
       
      It's an ACPI table error: SB_.PCIO.XHC_RHUB.HS11, Namespace lookup failure.
       


      Skylake Build:
      OpenCore 0.5.9
      Mojave 10.14.6, iMac17,1
      Asus Maximus Hero VIII
      6700K
       
      I've attached the config.plist and ACPI folder.
       
      EFI Drivers: OpenRuntime.efi and HfsPlus.efi
      Kexts: IntelMausi, Lilu, VirtualSMC, Whatevergreen
       
      Things I've tried...
       
      1) Clearing NVRAM (as it was previously booted by Clover)
       
      2) Hackintool USB Mapping: both the SSDT files and the USBPorts.kext
       
      3) USBInjectAll.kext (with and without SSDT files)
       
      4) SSDT-RHUB.aml. This seems to be directly involved, spent a long time with this but with no luck.
       
      I followed this guide:
       
      https://dortania.github.io/Getting-Started-With-ACPI/Universal/rhub-methods/manual.html
       
      Everything is XHC in my DSDT, except these definitions at the top (line 72 and 73):
       
          External (_SB_.PCI0.XHC_.DUAM, MethodObj)    // Warning: Unknown method, guessing 0 arguments     External (_SB_.PCI0.XHC_.RHUB.INIR, MethodObj)    // Warning: Unknown method, guessing 0 arguments  
      So I edited the SSDT-RHUB.dsl to this:

      *** I have started another thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410.  If you were thinking of installing Mojave, but would prefer to skip right to Catalina, click here. ***
       
      *** I am no longer maintaining the installation files in this first post.  Refer to my Catalina thread for the latest guidelines / files for installing macOS on this Latitude E6410 with Nvidia graphics ***
       
      I was inspired by @duduclx post here for installing El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6410, so I decided to install Mojave 10.14.5 and subsequently 10.14.6.  Everything works perfectly (including sleep).  I'm starting this thread hoping to help others install Mojave on their E6410s.  A brief installation guide is provided later in this first post.  The interested reader is encouraged to read the other posts in this thread to see how this solution evolved and to learn additional tips/details not provided in this first post (including dual-booting with macOS and Windows).
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) MacOS: Mojave 10.14.6 (APFS) (Patched with DosDude Mojave Patcher 1.3.3) MacModel: MacBookPro 6,2 (LPCB._DSM.Name "pci8086,3b09") Kexts: Lilu 1.3.6, VoodooHDA 2.9.2, AirportBrcmFixup 2.0.0, IntelMausiEthernet 2.4.1d1, ACPIBatteryManager 1.90.1, BrcmPatchRam2.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, VoodooPS2Controller (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad" version - release 6 developed by @Dr. Hurt and compiled by @bronxteck), not the original version), USBInjectAll (with custom SSDT-UIAC), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here). Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (with AirportBrcmFixup.kext) CLOVER (Legacy): R4961  
      Configuration items that may be different from what you have seen in other E6410 configurations
      Addition of _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (to control discrete graphics in order to enable sleep/wake) LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09" AND "name", "pci8086,3b09" for native Nehalem power management with MacBookPro 6,2 ECDV renamed to EC so that AppleBusPowerController loads AGP.VID._DSM patched with device-id "0a29" so that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement loads No CLOVER Generate P or Generate C States (with the correct LPCB._DSM and MacBookPro 6,2, these CLOVER options are unnecessary for this architecture and only limit max multiplier and reduce number of P states) DSDT patched to include HDAU device (device-id 0x0be3)  
      What is NOT working:
      Display brightness can be controlled with keyboard keys, but cannot be controlled with slider in Display settings. Graphics Power Management - AGPM loads (because 10de,0a29 device is injected), but there's no evidence that 3100m frequency and voltage is changing.
        What is NOT tested:
      Smartcard Reader eSata (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Firewire Port (it does appear in the Network settings, just haven't tried it) Microphone Jack PC Card Slot (I have this disabled in my BIOS)  
      What IS working:
      SLEEP IS WORKING! Everything else not mentioned above.   Speedstep/CPUPowerManagement is perfect, system temps are low, CPU multiplier operates as expected, battery life is long Shutdown is fast Display/graphics acceleration is perfect (thanks to DosDude's Mojave patcher) Brightness (adjusted with brightness keys on keyboard) works perfectly Battery Manager works (battery status is displayed in menu bar) simply by installing ACPIBatterManager.kext. Wi-Fi (after changing to Broadcom BCM94352HMB and installing AirportBrcmFixup.kext) Audio (volume adjustable, volume indicator appears in menu bar).  Switched to VoodooHDA from AppleALC after AppleALC caused slow boot due to "IOHDACodecFunction timeout." Ethernet port (with IntelMausiEthernet.kext) Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth (with BrcmPatchRam2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext) Optical Drive External VGA (with corrected NVCAP.  Need NVCAP 04000000 00000100 0E000000 00000007 00000000 (credit: here) for working external VGA display. Headphone jack Display Port (tested using DP > HDMI adapter) Camera SD Card Reader  
      Known issues and their solutions (These issues have all been resolved, with the solutions incorporated into the attached config files.  The issues are listed here for historical purposes and no further work is needed unless stated otherwise).
      (Solution to this issue is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT): Some users experience display issues.  Solution is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT.  The attached DSDT currently still includes Device (PNLF), so you will need to edit the DSDT to remove PNLF. USB sleep/wake power IORegistry keys are no longer provided in IOUSBHostFamily.kext after High Sierra 10.13.6.  Solution is to added SSDT-USBX.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.  The attached SSDT-USBX.aml includes USB sleep/wake properties for MacBookPro6,2 from High Sierra 10.13.6 IOUSBHostFamily.kext. Laptop does not sleep on lid close.  Solution is to add Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) in the DSDT.  This is solved in the attached DSDT. Leaving this for historical purposes, but the CLOVER USBFix is no longer necessary after finding that I had incorrectly applied the DSDT _DSM patch for Device (EHC1).  The CLOVER USBFix is not needed after fixing the DSDT..  AAPL,clock-id and device_type do not appear in IORegistry for EHC1.  Solution is to use CLOVER on-the-fly patching/fixing/renaming for EHC1 and EHC2.  Thank you, @feartech, for this tip. ALPS trackpad performance is not good with the "standard" VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I initially used.  Switching to the "Refined ALPS TouchPad driver" is a big improvement.  I've implemented and tested this on my system.  The ALPS version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext mixes up a few keys.  Need to switch the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) and change keyboard type to ISO European. This configuration (captured in the attached config files) uses an injected device-id (10de,0a29) for NVidia 3100m to get AGPM to load.  While I haven't observed any performance differences, a better approach may be to inject AGPM properties for device 10de,0a6c (the actual device-id for the 3100m).  This AGPM method is discussed later in this thread.  I have briefly tested this "FakeSMC.kext method" for injecting AGPM attributes without any noticeable changes in laptop/graphics behavior. IOHWControl is not loaded under AGPM (Should be AGP > VID > NVDA,Display-A@0 > NVDATesla > AGPM > gpu-control > IOHWControl as viewed in IORegistryExplorer).  It is loaded on a real MacBookPro6,2 running Mojave and is loaded on this Dell Latitude E6410 running High Sierra.  If I "Inject NVidia" via CLOVER, IOHWControl loads properly. The Dell Latitude DSDT (BIOS A17) has a bug in Method (GNOT).  In the method, the expression  If (LOr (LGreater (OSYS, 0x07D0), LLess (OSYS, 0x07D6))) always evaluates to TRUE, so the patched DSDT has no dependency on the value of OSYS.  I suspect that LOr should be replaced with LAnd, so that this expression is TRUE for variants of Windows 2001 and False for any other OS.  While this may have no affect on MacOS, it makes one wonder how such an obvious bug made it through Dell QA and is still present in BIOS A17.  Also makes one wonder whether the sleep problem (which no one has solved) was fixed in Windows to address another DSDT bug. The assigned value of ACOS and OSYS in the DSDT are conditional on the operating system.  There is no condition for "Darwin."  The solution is to add a condition for "Darwin" (making it equivalent to one of the defined operating systems (e.g. Linux, Win7, etc).  The attached config hard-codes ACOS and OSYS values equivalent to those for Linux.  Another way to handle this (different from the method employed in the attached config files) might be to override _OSI with XOSI (defined in a custom SSDT). The portType of the Internal Bluetooth device is portType=0 which, according to Rehabman's comments in SSDT-UIAC-All.dsl, is an external USB 2 port.  This should be an internal USB port (portType=2).  I learned through trial and error that the HUB1 and HUB2 definitions in Rehabman's SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl apply to the ports on the EHCx USB hubs.  The solution is to include the HUB1 definition in SSDT-UIAC.dsl and change portType to 2 for HP15.  This change doesn't appear to affect/fix sleep, but it may prevent instant wake if we get sleep working. There are minor differences between a real MacBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump and this HackBookPro6,2 IORegistry dump that can be resolved with simple DSDT edits.  I am now running with these changes, but haven't found these changes to make any difference in operational behavior.
      Rename Device (AC) -> Device (ADP1) Remove UID from Device (HPET) Add compatible ID "PNP0C01" to Device (HPET) Change ADP1:_STA from 0x0F to 0xFFFFFFFF Enable Ambient Light Sensor and renamed to Device (ALS0) from Device (ALS) Add compatible ID "smc-als" to ALS0 Rename LID -> LID0 Change "name" definitions to Buffers in _DSM methods Rename Device (PBTN) to PWRB Rename Device (SBTN) to SLPB Sleep / Wake does not work with the basic DSDT edits.  I have discovered that Sleep / Wake can be made to work by adding discrete graphics _OFF and _ON methods to _PTS and _WAK methods respectively (borrowed the concept and code from a working E6430 DSDT: Credit here: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/9248-working-sleep-on-intel-hd-and-nvidia-nvs-on-dell-latitude-e6430-optimus-enabled-or-disabled/page/6/. The Clover boot arg should be changed to "darkwake=0" for reasons explained by @holyfield in this thread.  Leaving this for historical purposes: LCD screen is blank when waking laptop by opening lid (screen is not blank when waking with power button).  Solution is to add darkwake=8 to CLOVER boot args.  Thank you @Hervé for this tip.  
      Brief Installation Guide:
      Configure BIOS (version A17) as follows (leave default unless listed here): Boot Sequence: USB, Internal HDD, CD/DVD, Modular Bay HDD; Boot List Option: Legacy; Integrated NIC: Enabled; Parallel Port: Disabled; Serial Port: Disabled; SATA Operation: AHCI; Misc Devices: Enable Modular Bay, Camera, External USB, Microphone, Media Card and 1394; Latitude ON Reader: Disabled; Keyboard Illumination: Auto ALS and Input; Ambient Light Sensor: Enabled; OROM Keyboard Access: Disable; TPM Security: Disable; Computrace: Deactivate; CPU XD Support: Enable; Performance: Enable all options; Power Management: Disable Wake on AC, Disable Wake on LAN/WAN, Express Charge: Standard, Charge Behavior: Enabled; Keypad: Fn Key Only; Mouse/Touchpad: Touchpad/PS-2 Mouse; USB Emulation: Enable Legacy; Fn Key Emulation: Disabled; Fastboot: Thorough; Virtualization: Enable Intel Virtualization, Disable VT for Direct I/O, Disable Trusted Execution; Wireless Switch: Bluetooth and WLAN; Wireless Device Enable: Bluetooth and WLAN;  Create your MacOS installer USB (Use DosDude's Mojave Patcher for Mojave) (start with High Sierra and not Mojave if you're new to hackintosh). Install CLOVER (Legacy) on installer USB using attached EFI as your guide for patched ACPI, kexts and config.plist Install MacOS to your SSD.  When you run DosDude's Mojave Patcher, DO NOT install LegacyUSBInjector.kext - you're going to use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext.  Also, do not install the DosDude SIP kext (you're using CLOVER to manage SIP). Install the following kexts in /Library/Extensions:  ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakeSMC.kext, FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext, FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad driver," not the original), VoodooSDHC.kext (configured as shown here). Switch Command and Option keys to compensate for Refined ALPS driver issue (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys).  Also change keyboard type to ISO European to fix the [ ` ~ ] key (to the left of the "1" (one) key. Install VoodooHDA Install HWMonitor application  
      Tips for Improved Performance (on this and other older systems)
      System Preferences > Spotlight > Search Results: Uncheck all options System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy: Add all Volumes System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce motion" System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce transparency"  
      Other tips
      If your fan is always running and temps are good, try pressing Fn + z After applying Mojave updates, HWMonitor may not display discrete graphics attributes.  On systems with multiple displays, a second (or third display) may not be active after applying the Mojave update.  The solution to this is to run "sudo kextcache -i /" (in a terminal window) and reboot.  This will usually fix the issue.  If the issue is not fixed, run DosDude's Post Install Utility, apply the Legacy Graphics Patch, reboot and then run "sudo kextcache -i /" if necessary.

      Credits
      In addition to those mentioned in this first post and in subsequent posts in this thread, much of this solution for the Latitude E6410 was made possible by the numerous contributions of @RehabMan.  I hope he's doing well, wherever he is.  Hopefully he has long since forgotten what a PIA I was (and still am) as I was (and still am) learning hackOS.

      Hello,
       
      I am trying to install Catalina on my system with OpenCore 0.5.9. Here is my system:
      Motherboard: ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS
      RAM: 32 Gb
      CPUs: 2 Xeon E5-2650V3
      GPU: RX 580 8Gb
      The Xeaon is a Haswell family.
       
      I already have Sierra running on the system, I want to upgrade to Catalina, so I did not modify anything in the Bios beside booting from USB stick.
      I made the USB stick tried to do the installation but it gets stuck at PCI configuration. I noticed that my keyboard is not usable since lights are off, maybe something to do with USB?
      I attached my config.plist (checked the plist on the sanity check and it's fine) and a screenshot.
       
      Any help is appreciated it.

      I'm a software developer that's new to hackintoshing.  Attempted both Catalina and Mojave.  My current config gets stuck before the installer.  The logo appears with progress bar near 1%.  My previous attempts got me through to the installer where I used Disk Utility to Erase the disk and created one GUID partition with APFS format, and after several minutes the first reboot brings back the logo with progress bar near 1%.  I never get to "x minutes remaining".
