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:
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.
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
Yesterday I was finally able to boot and install hackintosh on my pc but after the installation my hackintosh system won't able to detect my graphics card properly even NvidiaWeb drivers are installed(English isn't my main language)
My Current EFI
Kernel panic log:
My system properties:
Btw Gtx 1660 Super doesn't have any vga output.
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
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.
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.
