GA H370 HD3 / i3-8100 High Sierra stopped working

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I recently purchased parts to build a new desktop Hackintosh:

 

  • Gigabyte H370 HD3
  • i3-8100
  • G Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB
  • TP-Link Archer T9E AC1900
  • 1x1TB SanDisk SSD (boot drive)
  • 1x6TB Seagate internal (intention for storage on one 5tb partition, TimeMachine of OS drive on another)

 

After some trouble, and lots of support from Maldon, I managed to get it up and running for about a week with 0 trouble. I followed the Olarila.com guides and some direct advice from Maldon to get my UHD 630 working.

 

One day I went to boot it up and I started to get the common unallocated memory (!?) problem. The suggested solution of the slide=0 boot flag does not work.

 

I then decided to try on a separate hard drive the Olarila Catalina installation - Post-installation everything except audio worked (graphics out of the box seemingly on Mojave+) but I couldn't get it to boot after the installer.

 

Something I'd considered that may have broken my build was copying files from my wife's old Hackintosh laptop from the root of the non-EFI partition - I thought it would be safe to do so as both were Clover setups, and I was under the impression that kexts etc in Clover all sat on the dedicated Clover partition.

I'm looking for the shortest path to carefree Hackintosh-land really. I'm happy to try different versions of the OS, and have considered switching my Mobo from a H370 HD3 to one of the more ubiquitous ones. I've also considered an external graphics card if it would help.

I can provide phone photos of my BIOS setup and potentially my Clover/EFI folder as I still have a working Hackintosh laptop and can mount my EFI there and upload the contents.

With High Sierra or Catalina?

 

I'll try on my High Sierra one now.

 

I presume the order is:

1. Take out my SSD I want to boot from and mount it's EFI using Clover Configurator on my laptop

2. Delete the EFI folder on it

3. Paste the EFI you've provided

4. Place the SSD back in my Desktop and boot

5. If it boots, apply the Hackintool patch to fix my Video issues

 

Is that correct? Sorry for the handholding request.

I still encounter the same error.

 

Boot flags attached and the error.

 

This setup worked fine for over a week and then now I encounter this issue.

I don't know how to fix your boot problem but I am running Catalina on the same motherboard with information from this guide:

Some people have issues running just internal graphics. I have internal graphics enabled but am using a Powercolor RX570 4GB. I boot from a M.2 MNVe SSD.

 

I'm not sure if carefree hackintosh land really exists.

I'll certainly look to explore this option @Mac Hosehead - Having a gfx card in there will allow me to do some basic gaming, and that RX570 seems cheap.

 

Do you know if the "error allocating.....alloc type 2" error is graphics related?

I don't believe the error is graphics related. I previously have only seen similar messages trying to boot UEFI on older motherboards, not something that would change in time.

 

Are you using latest Clover? Are your motherboard settings the same as from guide? Is config.plist settings the same as from guide?

@Mac Hosehead thanks for the guidance.

 

I bought a Powercolor RX 570 and I'm tempted to switch out an M2 I have in another machine.

 

I'll try and follow the guide above - I don't see anything specific about getting the RX 570 working though - Should it work OOTB or do I need to do anything fancy?
