3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I already have a Hack running HighSierra and Clover.

But I think to move to Open Core and install macOS Catalina.

I just wonder if any one have any experience with this model of Gigabyte motherboard.

I must add I use this hack as server to share videos no need audio for example, only network and storage :)

 

My config is as follow

Motherboard: gigabyte ga-h97m-d3h

Processor : Intel i3 3,69 Mhz

Memory : 32 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 (Nvidia Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.105)

 

System identify as iMac (27-inch, Late 2013) 

Current version 10.13.6

 

Boot drive SSD Kingston HyperX Savage SHSS37A120G

 

Any advice ??

Try this EFI for Haswell, and setup BIOS as url.

EFI.zip

 

 

https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Desktop-Guide/config.plist/haswell.html#intel-bios-settings

Spoiler

11. Intel BIOS settings

11.1. Disable

  • Fast Boot
  • Secure Boot
  • VT-d (can be enabled if you set DisableIoMapper to YES)
  • CSM
  • Thunderbolt(For initial install, as Thunderbolt can cause issues if not setup correctly)
  • Intel SGX
  • Intel Platform Trust
  • CFG Lock (MSR 0xE2 write protection)(This must be off, if you can't find the option then enable both AppleCpuPmCfgLock and AppleXcpmCfgLock under Kernel -> Quirks. Your hack will not boot with CFG-Lock enabled)

11.2. Enable

  • VT-x
  • Above 4G decoding
  • Hyper-Threading
  • Execute Disable Bit
  • EHCI/XHCI Hand-off
  • OS type: Windows 8.1/10 UEFI Mode
  • DVMT Pre-Allocated(iGPU Memory): 64MB

Thanks a lot I finally do the install with macOS Catalina all works perfect ! I'm really impress 

I just have one issue

If the monitor is not plugin in the computer the computer not start.

I don't really need a monitor because I use this Mac as server so I don't need a monitor

Is normal this behaviour ?

      This is how I would create my first hackintosh MacBookPro 13,2 on HP EliteBook 820 G3. I selected this one as an example because it has Ethernet and it. can be made as a perfect MacBookPro 13,2. This procedure will actually work with all Laptops and Desktops too. Watch the videos carefully.
      1. Gather all information about the hardware, download solftware, create flash drive installer with Catalina using Clover and OpenCore boot loaders.
       
       
      2. Understand the files inside boot loader and create the config files for both Clover and OpenCore boot loader.
       
       
      3. Actual installation and post installation.
       
       
       
      Install macOS Catalina to External USB Hard Drive.
       
       
      Patch DSDT and SSDTs for perfect Sleep/Wake and USB ports power.
       
      Use External USB Wifi
       
      Install DW1820A instead of DW1560 for BT4.0 and Wifi.
      Patch AppleALC For Audio Codecs
       
      Cheers,
      Louis

      Finally I was able to move from Clover to OpenCore 0.5.9 on my hackintosh build. It boots really fast and even with the famous boot chime. I attached the OC config.plist for anyone who wants to give it a try. I followed the Github step-by-step guide:
      Haswell · GitBook
        dortania.github.io My build specs are:
      Gigabyte Z97-HD3 rev. 2.1, i5-4690K, 16 GB RAM, Gigabyte Aorus AMD RX 580 8gb GPU.
      I used OpenCanopy to give a Clover feeling to the OpenCore boot menu (I don’t like list-type boot menus).

      - Nothing
       
       
      Disclaimer! 
       
      Bootloaders are currently unable to start the installation.
      The solution is to use a virtual machine and use a physical disk (additional, USB or SATA, NVME) as a target in the installation.
      Change the OpenCore compiled from the source code, and add some entries in NVRAM through config.plist.
       
      This is not the best solution. But it is the only way at the moment. There are some ready-made images available out there, but I prefer not to use them and create a clean installation.
       
       
      What you need to install
       
      - Running install of macOS
      - Already working OpenCore with this setup
      - Create bootable ISO file
      - Spare Disk/SSD
      - macOS Big Sur DP1 install app
      - Latest OpenCore + Kexts compiled from sources
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches
       
       
       
      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock and another with overclock [5.0 GHz]
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup



      How create bootable ISO file
       
      Download Big Sur DP1
       
      Run this command on Temrinal:
      sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Seeding.framework/Resources/seedutil enroll DeveloperSeed Go to System Updater and download the Install macOS Beta app.
       
      Create ISO
       
      Then run on Terminal (One line at a time):
      hdiutil create -size 12G -fs hfs+ -volname install -type SPARSEBUNDLE ~/Desktop/install hdiutil attach ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install --nointeraction hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Beta' |awk '{print $8}'` -force hdiutil makehybrid -o ~/Desktop/install ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle rm -rf ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle
       
      Now you have install.iso on desktop.
       
       
      How create create the virtual machine and install to disk/SSD
       
      Download and install the trial version of the VMware Fusion from their site. I'm used the version 11.5.5.
       
      - Create a custom virtual machine
       

       
      - Operating System: Apple OS X - macOS 10.15
       

       
      - Create a new virtual disk (The size doesn't matter, We'll delete later)
       

       
      - Click in "Customize Settings"
       

       
      - Save the VM on desktop with name: bigsur
       

       
       
      - Insert the spare disk/SSD on PC (reboot if necessary) and identify what /dev/diskX is.
      You can look on Disk Utility.app:

       
      - Create VMDK that point to it:
      sudo diskutil unmountDisk diskX /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/diskX fullDevice ~/Desktop/bigsur.vmwarevm/physical sata - Edit the virtual machine settings created previously
       

       
      - Click in Hard Disk (SATA) and delete it (Remove Hard Disk)
       

       
      - Then add the physical disk
       

       
      - There's a bug in Fusion. To select the physical.vmdk, right click then "Quick Look", then "Share virtual disk with the virtual machine that created it"
       

       
      - Click Apply.
       

       
      - Now mount de install.iso
       


       
      - Start the VM and install as usual until: Disk Utility, format GUID with APFS (VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media), Install macOS, wait few reboots and stop at first boot wizard.
       
      This can take up to 45 minutes. It may seem like it is stopped, but it is not.
       

       
      - Press Command + Q and shutdown (usually WIN + Q)
       

       
      - Close VMware Fusion.
       
       
      Copy OpenCore to EFI
       
      - Mount the EFI with:
      sudo diskutil mount diskXs1  
      - Copy your current working OpenCore EFI to that mounted EFI.
       
      - Download mine attached or Update your OpenCore, Kexts and driver UEFI.
              - You can use the @MaLd0n script attached to compile all (OlarilaOC.command.zip)
              - If using mine add your MLB, ROM, SystemUUID and SystemSerialNumber. (see how to)
       
      - Add following items do config.plist:
       
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> boot-args -> -lilubetaall (append)
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-basesystem + Data + <00>
      NVRAM -> Add -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-kernel + Data + <00>
      NVRAM -> Delete -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-basesystem
      NVRAM -> Delete -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> booter-fileset-kernel
       

       
      Done!
       
      Boot from the new disk/SSD and finish de first boot wizard.
       
       
      And last but not least

      After hearing that OpenCore is so much better than Clover, and that it will probably be able to boot Big Sur before Clover does, I decided to take the jump.
       
      Running Catalina 10.15.5 18F101 with OC 0.5.9.
       
      So far I like the result. The OS feels faster, boots faster.
      And absolutely everything works (sleep, network, etc...)
       
      So, that's it? Is there anything else I have to do?
