Version Info

This build is compatible up to Big Sur Beta

  • Now Compatible with macOS 11
  • Please leave feedback with issues or w/o
  • Comitted to Updating up to OS 11

  • Improved Preformance and Power Managements
  • Can Provide Files for Display Overrides
  • Additional Patches for 4K Display
  • updated for Big Sur
  • if using unsupported wifi card disable it in bios
  • use config.plist
  • FIXED SLEEP WAKE BUG
  • Exact same functionality as Catalina

What Works / Does Not

  • Everything works minus in-built mic
  • Some displays may be detected as 40hz (working on fix)

Notes

  • Never tested USB C over Display Output, everything else works flawlessly
  • USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue)

POST

  • run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
  • If no mouse, install all voodoo kexts using Kext Utility

Description

  • This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies.
  • You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files.
  • This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements
  • This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable
  • Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other.

BIOS Setup

  • Disable Secure Boot

INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)

  • Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup.
  • To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command
  • There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete.
  • You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur
  • You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw

Boot Entry Setup

  • Due to the fact this BIOS is locked down pretty heavily, reccomended to use Windows to find a free tool to add UEFI boot entries

Messages and Facetime

  • Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB
  • There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial)
  • This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support.

Headphones and Audio

  • All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio
  • no internal mic

Credits

  • MaLd0n for DSDT Patches (HUGE SHOUTOUT)
  • Original Kext Authors
  • Clover Team

Finished!

  • Congratulations, there really aren't any more steps that are required. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

      09192020 - Big Sur Beta 7 update, no issues.
      09042020 - Big Sur Beta 6 update, no issues.
       
      I have moved on with this and do not use my HP G2 for Hackintosh, its mainly used for Kali Linux for Packet analysis these days, with that said I am using the HP 840 G3 for Hackintosh. I transitioned to OpenCore and Big Sur for this laptop but feel free to continue to ask questions. 
       
      My G3 has the BCM84360CS2 mod, I got the module from eBay for $10 and the adapter for $10 off amazon.
       
      Big Sur Beta 5 is working using the below EFI folder. OpenCore 6.1.0 and latest kexts
       
      Method: USB Big Sur installation
      Create an Big Sur Beta5 or Catalina USB installer (google is your friend here, plenty of tutorials there) Mount the EFI partition of your USB installer using Clover Configurator Copy the EFI file attached here. Boot your laptop using F9 and choose the USB installer and follow the prompts  
       
       
      Catalina and old method in the Spoiler
       
       
      Credits go to Jake Lo for creating this EFI file. I did make some changes to his, this one is Open Core 6.1.0 and latest Lilu.kext and WhatEverGreen.kext

      **********************************************************************************
      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.
      **********************************************************************************
       
      Background
      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.

      Hello, could someone tell me what is this black screen?
       
      I am trying to install the beta 5 of big sur on a hackintosh with catalina. I have made a bootable USB and I have updated the version of opencore to 0.6.0. The EFI folder that I am using on the USB is the same as the one with which I turn on my hackintosh in Catalina and it works (in Catalina, not big sur). 
       
      I don't need big sur urgently, but I would like to install it when the official version comes out, and if problems appear in the installation when the latest version comes out, I won't have time to solve it, so if someone can help me it would be of great help.
       
      My specs are: i5 9600k, Vega 54 (with bios of 64)

      I have a problem, I select the "sleep" option from the menu, the mac goes to sleep but does not "wake up" (screen). I can't even change smbios from iMac17.1 to iMac18.1 + when I change the mac it boots, the progress bar and apple icon are visible and then the screen goes off.
