  2. Hey all - first time post here. I built a hackintosh with the following specs below. I'm having a lot of trouble getting to the actually usb-installer I made with clover - more below. System Build: MOTHERBOARD: ASRock H170M LGA 1151 USB 3.0 Mini ITX CPU: Intel Core i5-6600 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1151 RAM: Crucial 8GB 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 GPU: VGA GeForce GTX 750 2GB GDDR5 PCIe HDD: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA3 SSD PSU: CORSAIR CS-M Series CS550M 550W 24-pin PSU CASE: $40 COOLER MASTER Elite 110 Mini-ITX Configuration specifics: graphics are trying to be run via the motherboard dvi port (that others have suggested to use when booting) This system properly boots via UEFI (recognizing all hardware installed), and gets to clover . I've tried booting clover with several boot flags such as -v -x npci=off , etc. But when I try to do this, it brings up apple logo and then has as error (see attached: 20161027_173820.jpg ). That error is: panic(......."Unable to find driver for this platform: ACPI ..... IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1665") How can I resolve this? I'm really at a loss. Thank you!
  3. Hello everyone. I'm here because I've installed "El Capitan" and everything works well except the HDMI Audio. My graphic card is AMD Radeon HD 6370M and my sound card is ALC272. In Windows, I've used "HWInfo" to see the drivers of my computer and my HDMI Audio driver is "ATI/AMD Cedar/Park/Robson - High Definition Audio Controller". In Audio settings of El capitan, I don't have any hdmi devices and I don't know why it's not detected. I've used "Ipomoea" as framebuffer. If you need more informations, just ask me for it. Thanks you in advance.
  4. Changelog 2015-12-19: Added instructions for El Capitan along the guide and updated the attachments - now including Clover 3320. Reason:?ASMedia 1042 is finally supported since El Capitan 10.11.2 and GenericUSBXHCI 1.2.11. For El Capitan stable releases, non-Apple kexts should preferably (in some cases, mandatorily) be copied to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11, for which you'll need?InjectKexts=true and disabled SIP.?post-install.zip?updated with kexts that work for El Capitan too. Included separate versions of Audio_NP530U3B, one for each OS:?Audio_NP530U3B_Mav.zip?and?Audio_NP530U3B_ElCap.zip. USB 3.0 is working for installation. 2015-08-23: Tested the same method for OS X El Capitan Public Beta. Basically all you need is to update everything (Clover and all the kexts)?and the only really important modification is to use these as the Clover boot arguments: -v kext-dev-mode=1 -rootless=0 (thanks leocg). The system will already be usable with full backlight and graphics. Also, the current GenericUSBXHCI doesn't work with El Capitan and must not be loaded (no USB3, ASMedia 1042 unsupported so far). I'll probably adapt this guide or create a new one once I reach a good level of completeness with El Capitan. 2015-05-18: Added display color profile, fine-tuned for this laptop:?Display Calibrated.icc.zip 2015-03-22: Modified config.plist with AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB patches so that HDMI audio is working now (thanks toleda). Also modified config.plist so that now the _DSM method from HDEF device is included by Clover, no need for DSDT patch anymore. 2015-03-20: Added NVRAM and EmuVariableUefi considerations (thanks nguyen). Updated SSDT part with updated ssdtPRGen. 2015-03-18: Big update! apianti made me notice that the system was only able to boot with a specific Clover version because that version I had, had a special driver called HFSPlus, which is not part of the Clover installers. The VBoxHfs driver won't boot from external drives, only from internal drives. Knowing that, now we can use even the most recent Clover version and that definitely makes things easier, especially for booting newer OSX's. 2015-02-25: ?updated with EAPDFix v2.0.1, instructions for kext reload added to the guide. Updated all kexts from post-install.zip to the most recent versions. 2015-02-23: Some extra reviews, added an introduction and Clover Configurator suggestion. 2015-02-22: Some overall minor updates (new links, formatting, grammar...). 2015-01-13: Added Chatzki report about a possible mistake on the section that explains how to activate two-finger scrolling gesture. 2014-09-18: it's safe to update to 10.9.5, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-07-16: it's safe to update to 10.9.4, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-05-31: it's safe to update to 10.9.3, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-03-17: Removed NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from Clover_2236.zip - thanks nguyen! 2014-03-13: EDID injection section moved to a dedicated thread 2014-03-12: added boot time improvement tips 2014-03-05: TRIM enabler is now done on-the-fly by Clover. No extra app is needed anymore. The changes were in the config.plist both from Clover_2236.zip and post-install.zip 2014-02-27: it's safe to update to 10.9.2, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-02-21: added some clarifications after feedback on #16. 2014-02-17: updated BIOS section with pictures and discovered the reason why I lost access to it before. That means: you won't lose access to yours anymore 2014-02-15: reconsiderations about the hibernation. 2014-02-10: changed the whole SSDT part, new config.plist needed. I'm still studying about the optimal way to use the SSDTs but this is already giving a Geekbench 10% increase and so far no problems. Updated some kexts. Small change in audio patch. Removed EHCI and DTGP patches (DTGP now done by Clover). 2014-02-05: removed some useless DSDT patches (now only 4, all really needed). Fn key and LPC work without patches. 2014-01-31: added some hardware specifications to help on search and specs comparison 2014-01-30: corrected AppleHDA269.kext, now only 16KB and truly ready for system updates (the AppleHDA binary patch is done in Clover). Added Clover patch to enable VGA. 2014-01-29: added AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext output for reference (references.zip) 2014-01-28: three Windows steps could be removed thanks to a patch rewrite by RehabMan; internal microphone now working (thanks Mirone!); 100% vanilla now: created an AppleHDA269.kext following Piker's New style of AppleHDA.kext patching Special acknowledgement: kyndder and RehabMan for their extensive support, patience, and for having taught me everything I know. So, what is cool about this guide? There are still many many tutorials around the web teaching you how to install a Hackintosh in a very old fashion: using distros (hacked versions of Mac OS), using Chameleon bootloader, Legacy booting, manually patching kernel extensions... Here I have put all my efforts on the newest methods available in order to have a very stable and clean system, without hard modifications to it. Let me give you an example: the first version I installed was 10.9 and I was able to gradually update to 10.9.5 without extra efforts (at all!). I just went into the App Store and clicked Update, just like a real Mac. When El Capitan came out, almost no modifications were needed to my setup, actually the hardest part was waiting for people to release some driver updates The Clover bootloader is the main facility here. Thanks to it, you can UEFI boot and configure some patches that are applied on-the-fly to the Mac settings, keeping all the OS files original (or vanilla as you'll often read), but simply read differently once the system is starting. Instead of hacking the OS, you hack the way the OS interprets your machine.?That's why everything keeps working when?you update the system. Finally, and maybe the most important, a completely bizarre particularity of this laptop was found and solved after weeks of research:?you will need an EDID injection in order to activate the built-in display?(ok that's kinda common, actually) and then you also need a DSDT edit to achieve full brightness, because there's a memory register set to a value that turns out to be very low on this specific display. ? The overall procedure here described is recommended even for different laptops or even desktops, however keep in mind that this guide can be used then only as a very superficial base - surely many modifications here recommended should not be done, and some extra will be needed, especially on the DSDT. The steps here described are strictly optimized for the Samsung Series 5 NP530U3B laptop. Working: Built-in display with brightness control, full backlight and resolution Intel HD Graphics 3000: QE/CI, full speed step (350MHz - 1.15GHz), HDMI (with audio) and mini-VGA outputs Intel Core i5-2467M: full speed step (800MHz - 2.3GHz) Realtek ALC269VC: built-in speakers and microphone, headphones Realtek RTL8168: Ethernet ASMedia 1042: USB 3.0 (for El Capitan, only since 10.11.2) Bluetooth Battery percentage Touchpad Keyboard commands with the key Fn Mavericks only: Card reader and?Integrated camera iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime (last tested on March 22nd 2015) Sleep (from RAM only) Not working: Integrated WiFi. Intel Centrino will probably never be supported, please buy a compatible WiFi USB Adapter. Hibernation, which implies that?the PC will keep some power usage while sleeping. FYK, hibernation doesn't exist on real Macs so this is not simple to get. El Capitan only: Card reader and?Integrated camera Unstable: Mavericks only: no audio after boot and/or after sleep. Needs to reload EAPDFix.kext El Capitan only: shutdown and sleep will instantly reboot the machine if certain USB devices are kept connected, such as my WiFi dongle. When I take it off before sleeping or shutting down, they both work fine. Both systems: the USB 3.0 port often doesn't work after sleep ? This guide will simply and only avoid you one special job: research. This is not meant to be and will never be a "next-next-finish" procedure, unless you want to have a crappy system, and I don't really expect that from an Apple user. You will be able to install it after some hours of work. It took me a month to study and test a lot of solutions until I had a usable system, and I keep studying to make it better One of the very important parts of a Hackintosh consists in modding the?DSDT, a system file containing lots of information about your PC's components and how they should?interact with the system. This file is unique for each machine and even the same machine could have a different DSDT during its lifetime (e.g. after a BIOS update or a hardware upgrade). That means you should never use someone else's DSDT. So, during this guide, you'll prepare your very own DSDT, starting from the origin of it. Think positively: the hard work will only occur on the first installation; for later ones, you'll take profit of almost everything! Last but not least: the majority of the steps follow a necessary order, thus it is really important not to overpass. Don't reboot the machine if the guide doesn't say so, for example. Even with all the steps having been severely tested for over 2 years on tens of different OSX builds, I don't take any responsibility for any problem that could occur in your machine. You should also not attempt this guide if you don't know how to boot a USB Live Linux or to remove your HDD and install it into another machine, just to mention some usual PC recovery activities one should be used to in case of failures. Let it begin! --------------------- On Windows: 1. Update your BIOS on Samsung's SW Update. Here, the installation froze some times, and at every freeze I restarted the PC and retook it, until it finished successfully. I'm using version 13XK; I don't recommend using older versions and there aren't any newer while I write this guide. 2. Download the attached Clover_3320_preinstall.zip?and extract it to any-size pen drive just formatted as FAT32. If you prefer, you can download the Clover installer, replace VBoxHfs driver by HFSPlus driver, install drivers EmuVariableUefi and OsxAptioFix, replace the config.plist with the one included on this zip and include the needed kexts in order to be able to boot and have your keyboard/mouse/touchpad/USB 3.0 detected. However, the zip already includes all that. 3. Follow steps 1-3 of the EDID injection guide to dump your EDID in base64. 4. There's only one adjustment to be made in the attached Clover: open EFI/CLOVER/config.plist on notepad, search for "CustomEDID" and change the string to the EDID64 you got from the guide. If you don't do that, you'll get a black screen on your laptop after booting Mac OS X, as said. ------------------------------ On the BIOS setup: In the Advanced tab, change AHCI Mode Control to Manual, and Set AHCI Mode to Enabled. Notice that "Fast BIOS Mode" lies that if Disabled the system can boot Legacy OS only. It does boot UEFI OS when Disabled! Moreover, you won't be able to boot from a USB drive if this is set to Enabled, so leave it Disabled. If someday you want to enable Fast BIOS, you'll need to use Esc+F2 whenever you want to enter the BIOS again. In the Boot tab, change UEFI Boot Support to Enabled and enter Boot Device Priority to put your device containing Clover (USB HDD probably) to the 1st place. I had problems when booting from "select boot device", so it's better to set it here. ------------------- Installation: 1. Download OS X Mavericks/El Capitan on the App Store and install it to a USB device following OSXDaily's guide. The USB device should?preferentially formatted in a GUID partition table via Disk Utility and the install partition should be at least 7GB. You can install Clover to the EFI partition of this USB drive and even have multiple installations, as I have on my USB 3.0 external HDD (see the picture below).?If you don't have a machine running Mac OS X, you may want to try a VirtualBox, and in that case you might want to exchange files between Windows and the virtual Mac, for which you?may want to refer to?paulscode post. 2. Plug the Clover and Installation USB drives to any USB port. If you have put your installation files to a USB 3.0 device, you'll likely speed up your installation by plugging it to the USB 3.0 port. Use a 2.0 port if you have any troubles.?Once you've booted from the USB, Clover should show up. Press the F4 key; this is going to save a lot of original files from your machine, such as the famous DSDT, in the folder EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin. We'll use them later for some patching. Clover may seem to have frozen for some seconds; don't panic, it is just saving the files. 3. Enter "Boot from Install OS X Mavericks" (or El Capitan)?and wait for the install to load, it should take up to 2 minutes to show the graphics (time will vary depending on the attached drive, especially if USB 2.0 or 3.0)?and then around 30 seconds to ask you for a mouse/keyboard if you haven't connected a mouse?to a USB port. If it freezes for longer than this in any message, there's something wrong. Please post it here if you're using the same laptop model, otherwise refer to Google or create your own topic in these forums saying where did your boot hang up. 4. Once the graphical installation is loaded, you'll surely notice the brightness is very low (maybe you'll even think your display is off!). I found out that there's a memory register which needs a specific value to activate full backlight, and RehabMan then built a DSDT patch that sets this register in conjunction with ACPIBacklight.kext. You'll install both the patch and the kext later, because these procedures require the Mac OS to be installed, so you'll just have to be patient and use the display like that for the first moments... 5. Open the installation's Disk Utility (top bar > Utilities > Disk Utility) and partition your HDD. In case you're intending to dual-boot later,?leave?some free space for the Windows partition(s) after the Mac partitions, otherwise it won't work.?If you plan to use the Windows free space for multiple partitions, be aware that the installation can only be made in the first of them. If you want a partition with native read&write support on both Windows and OSX, use exFAT. NTFS is read-only on Mac and FAT will give you problems for files bigger than 4GB. You don't need to mess with the SSD. You can try to install Mac on it, but 16GB is just too small, you won't be able to install almost anything on your Mac then. If you want to make a slight upgrade and have an SSD dedicated to the Mac, go ahead and get a 32GB+. Another option is to create a Fusion Drive between the SSD and the HDD: this is the solution I've been using for over a year. People say this also tends to corrupt more... Well, my installation got corrupted after 1 year, but the overall speed boost I get everyday definitely made it worth it. Remember to Time Machine as often as you can! It certainly saved me days of work when I needed it. 6. Quit Disk Utility, follow the installation, restart and boot to your brand new Mac OS X to make the initial settings! ---------------------- On Mac OS X: Installing kexts: Drag and drop kexts over Kext Utility icon. If they're many, drop them all at once, otherwise at each kext installation the app will rebuild the kernel caches and this takes some time. To uninstall a kext, simply move it from the folder /System/Library/Extensions (also known as /S*/L*/E*) to a backup folder and run Kext Utility to update the caches. The kext is going to be loaded on the next boot. El Capitan: the next boot should be made with SIP disabled. Run kextstat on the terminal to certify that the kext is loaded, then run Kext Utility again to re-update the caches. In order to disable SIP, all you need is to set RtVariables/CsrActiveConfig and RtVariables/BooterConfig in the Clover's config.plist. Open the file, find the section RtVariables and make sure it looks like this: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x67</string> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>ROM</key> <string></string> </dict> PS.: I've intentionally cleared the ROM string. You can generate one by using Clover Configurator. 1. Install the kexts included in the attached post_install.zip (RealtekRTL8111, ACPIBacklight, ACPIBatteryManager). These links serve not only for giving credits but also for verifying in the future if there exist any updated versions. 2. Reboot and check if your Ethernet (cable) network?is working. 3. SSDT: read the readme,?download and run ssdtPRGen.sh as normal user, not as root. You must be connected to the internet (the script downloads information about your CPU). Answer No to all the questions asked by the script. 4.?Copy?~/Library/ssdtPRGen/SSDT.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. Also copy?EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin/SSDT-1.aml to the patched folder. Some methods in the DSDT make reference to a register defined in the original SSDT-1 so we need to keep it. These will be the only SSDTs to be loaded as Clover is set to drop all of the native ones (that's defined in the config.plist). Reminder: don't reboot yet! 5. DSDT: use MaciASL. Open the file DSDT.aml stored on the previously mentioned origin folder and apply the patches included on post-install.zip, compile and save as DSDT.aml on EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. Apply the patches slowly, let the app take its time. It will only be possible to save the file if there are no compilation errors! Warnings and remarks are ok, some are going to show up, and they're going to be fixed via Clover patches. 6. Edit EFI/CLOVER/config.plist : look for the key "Generate", which is set to true, and change?it to false. Now we're using a custom SSDT so we won't need?Clover's auto-generation anymore. P.S.: we've manually applied some patches to the DSDT because it's unpracticable to apply them with Clover. The others are applied via Clover to reduce the amount of manual patches. This way, in case of a BIOS update or a hardware upgrade, you'll have to reapply just a very few patches to your new DSDT. 7. Reboot. Notice while booting the correct startup of AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. Power management solved! And if you correctly applied the DSDT patches and installed the included ACPIBacklight, then you should also have full backlight. We're almost there! 8.?(Very recommended) Download and run the?latest Clover installer?and install it to your hard drive. This time we have some modifications in order to NVRAM work properly. Click on Change Install Location if your hard drive is not already selected.?Continue > Customize. Check Install for UEFI Booting Only. This will automatically install Clover into the EFI partition. Drivers64UEFI: check OsxAptioFixDrv?(only this one, and please don't use OsxAptioFixDrv-v2, it gives you artifacts on screen). Check "Install RC scripts on target volume" and "Install all RC scripts on all other bootable OSX volumes". Those are for NVRAM purposes. Once installed, replace VBoxHfs-64.efi by HFSPlus-64.efi to be able to boot from external drives I had a kernel panic at my first reboot, but since the second reboot everything works flawlessly. If you want more information about NVRAM and how to test if it's working properly, please refer to Everything you need to know about NVRAM (by nguyen). ? The fixes below have no specific order and they all require the system to be rebooted in order to start working. You're still welcome to apply them "at once" and reboot after all, but do it as you wish! Audio: install the kexts from the attached?Audio_NP530U3B_Mav.zip?(Mavericks) or?Audio_NP530U3B_ElCap.zip?(El Capitan). Mirone helped me to update the xmls, then I've put them to a new dummy kext (so that you don't need to remove original AppleHDA.kext) and edited EAPDFix.kext for this laptop's nodes. EAPDFix is for audio after sleep. If you ever suddenly have no audio (mostly happens after a cold boot), all you have to do is: sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/EAPDFix.kext sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/EAPDFix.kext I have a script called EAPDReload.sh on my home folder, so I open up the terminal and run ./EAPDReload.sh. It has the same code as above, but the first line must be?#!/bin/bash. I need it more often on Mavericks than on El Capitan. Battery: you've already patched and installed the kext, now you just need to go under System Preferences > Energy Saver and check "Show battery status in menu bar". Bluetooth: if you don't use it, remove the *Bluetooth* kexts from /S*/L*/E* in order to remove the support; however, this won't turn off the board. Scrolling gesture on the touchpad: System Preferences > Trackpad, move the tracking speed all the way up, test the scrolling, then reduce the speed back (thanks Andrea_ITA). Chatzki reported it worked for him after moving the scrolling speed all the way up. App Store & iCloud: do the steps described in the method #3 from this guide (remove all the Ethernet interfaces, then remove file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist and reboot). It's better to do this before having configured your network, but it's not mandatory. Also, if you haven't installed the RealtekRTL8111 kernel extension, then do it, otherwise you won't have an "en0" interface and Apple is going to say that your computer could not be verified. If?Spotlight is heavily using the CPU?and you are dual booting with Windows,?prevent NTFS drives indexing. Hibernate: this is a known problem for PCs booting in UEFI mode. A temporary fix (currently works only for Mavericks)?is to change the hibernation mode to 0 - this way, the sleep image will be stored in the RAM instead of in the disk, so the PC will keep draining the battery (low power of course) to provide energy to the RAM memory. It's different from the hibernation that we're used to in a Windows system, because it?doesn't even exist on a real Mac. By the way, a real Mac has three hibernate modes: 0, 1 and 3. Many people succeeded on making a Hackintosh hibernate by using bizarre values like 21, 25, 29, 57... But I wasn't successful the time I tried it. Run the following command to set mode 0: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 For El Capitan only, we will also execute two more commands: sudo pmset -a standby 0 && sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0 In case you haven't done it and your laptop has hibernated, you'll notice on the next boot that the Mac OS X boot option in Clover now has "(Hibernate)" beside it. If you try to boot that, you'll get a reboot, that's why we change the mode to 0. If that happened to you, hit the spacebar over the "(Hibernate)"?boot option on Clover and enter "Cancel hibernate". Once booted, execute the step above and also the command below: sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage If you don't want sleepimage to ever be saved again (because it takes some Gigabytes), you can do this trick to create a 1 Byte unmodifiable file (thanks kyndder): cd /var/vm sudo rm sleepimage sudo touch sleepimage sudo chflags uchg sleepimage As mentioned in the working/not working/unstable (beginning of this guide), sleep can end up rebooting your machine depending on what is connected to the USB ports. It might be useful to know that you can?prevent the system from sleeping when you're away from it using the?caffeinate command, either alone for infinite waiting or followed by -t and the amount of seconds it should be kept running: caffeinate -t 3600 ? The common issues below are already solved for you if you're using my files: USB 3.0 on chipset ASMedia 1042: it works perfectly on El Capitan only since version 1.2.11 of GenericUSBXHCI, included on?Clover_3320_preinstall.zip?among the injected kexts. Curiously, Apple has reverted a change on the USB drivers on El Capitan 10.11.2 that made this possible. On earlier versions of ElCap, ASMedia 1042 is not supported. [AGPM controller] unknown platform: the MacBookPro8,1 SMBIOS requires your GPU to be named IGPU. On this laptop, it's called GFX0 instead. The Clover config.plist included in?Clover_3320_preinstall.zip?makes a DSDT patch that takes care of the renaming. The Mac OS X setup is over! Now run NovaBench (App Store), OpenGL Extensions Viewer (App Store) and GeekBench (free version on their website) and compare them with my results for the stock NP530U3B-A02FR: GeekBench, NovaBench, OpenGL (my current results are actually higher as I added a 4GB 1600MHz memory module). If you feel you're having problems with your installation, you can also compare the snippets of interest on your DSDT and SSDT to mine. The AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext output is interesting too. These are all included (DSDT, SSDT and AICPUPM output) in the attached references.zip. ------------------------------ Going further I really really recommend you to keep your Clover updated and to install Clover Configurator to take the most out of it. There will be plenty of options in there so you won't need to know each of the config.plist keys, everything is in the Configurator interface. Open your config.plist with the Clover Configurator and use the magic wand to get automatically filled?the parameters in the SMBIOS section. For the SMBIOS/SmUUID, open the Mac terminal and run: uuidgen This will generate a random UUID, just copy-paste it to Clover Configurator. ? Besides the SmUUID, I've also cleared the RtVariables/ROM, RtVariables/MLB, SMBIOS/Board-ID and SMBIOS/Serial Number. All of these can be generated by Clover Configurator and I recommend to do it as chances of getting a working App Store, iMessage and FaceTime are bigger. ------------------------------ Installing Windows 8 Recommended read: Beginners guide to UEFI Dual boot OS X and Windows Format the SSD as FAT32 (MS_DOS option on Disk Utility) otherwise you'll get errors during Windows installation (apparently it tries to place some files to the SSD). If for some reason you can't format your SSD, unplugging it will also work. Format a USB drive for Windows 8 from a Windows computer (on Mac you'll get an error about duplicated privacy.rtf while you copy the .iso files) Extract the Windows 8 ISO to the USB drive. In case you've created a partition for Windows instead of leaving free space, erase that partition using the Windows installer, then select the new free space and click Next. Windows will automatically create the needed partitions on that space. To recover Clover, boot Windows and connect your pen drive containing Clover. Hold Shift key while you click on Restart to enter "Advanced startup" menu. Choose to boot from USB-HDD. Sync time between Windows and Mac: change Windows registry key. ------------------------------------------- Installing Clover to the HDD If everything seems to be running fine, you can start making some customizations to your Clover config.plist, such as removing "-v" from the Arguments key - this will show a gray Apple screen during the boot instead of a black console. The console is useful for debugging but if everything's fine then you don't really need it anymore. Also, personally I don't have other systems installed, I have Windows and Linux installed as virtual machines inside the Mac. So, it's pointless to select the system I want to boot. That's why I activated the "Text only" option in the GUI section and set Timeout to 0. As a final tune, you can now enable Fast BIOS option. Your Mac will boot in under than 10 seconds from the moment you click the Power button. Finally, you probably don't want to use forever a USB drive only for booting. You can install Clover directly to the hard drive, instead. Please follow step #9 and then the?following?steps: If you want to use your SSD with Mac, format it as Mac OS Extended and mount its EFI partition using Disk Utility. EFI partitions are hidden, you'll need to follow this tutorial to see them. Copy the EFI folder from the USB drive to the SSD EFI partition. You can also use the HDD's EFI partition. Mount the HDD EFI partition and copy the folder EFI/Microsoft to the just created EFI folder on the SSD. When you reboot using the Clover USB, go to Clover Boot Options and enter Add Clover boot options for all entries - this way, your BIOS will be able to boot from whichever drive you installed Clover, including your SSD (normally the BIOS doesn't have an option to boot from the SSD). Reboot now without the Clover USB and it should work! ------------------------------------------- Final words It took me a lot of time to write this guide, but I felt I needed to do it after so many people hard working to help me and the whole community. If you have something to add, please do it! You're also welcome to make any critics and further suggestions to this guide.

  7. Rollback those 2, to 10.8.5 version and got my bluetooth working again! Sent some files to my phone and it works very well. Thought it wouldn't work because of lack of compatibility. Used EasyKext to handle it. Also, if you want, you could download 10.8.5 Delta update directly from Apple website and unpack both files from inside of it. I'm on El Capitan 10.11.6. https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1675?locale=en_US bluetooth.zip

  9. first os x 10.11 developer beta... build 15A178w release note
  10. Hi, so i have been running my Hackintosh for nearly 2 years. Over that time i have added & updated my hardware to get all features of a proper Mac. My serial number & longer serial board number have stayed the same & my smbios has always been set to a Mac Pro 3,1 With my Native Bluetooth/WIFI Combo card i have had all features working: HandOff, Continuity, SMS Relay, Personal Hotspot etc. So when the new MacOS Sierra comes out my setup will be able to run all of the new features, i have an iPhone 6 & an Apple Watch Sport. The problem is my SMBIOS is Mac Pro (Early 2008) which is not listed as supported, so what would be the best way/process to update my SMBIOS. I'm familiar with Clover Configurator but what would be the best/ most compatible SMBIOS to choose? Newer iMac? Newer Mac Pro? (I'm almost sure to be able to access the Nvidia Webdrivers for my GeForce GTX 960 i have to choose a Mac Pro). Will using Clover Configurator to change my SMBIOS & serial number then simply doing a reboot be enough or could it cause problems, as in security issues, i remember from the past i did this a few times and in verbose boot it would say about iTunes DRM? I also have the newer 2 Factor Authentication setup on my iPhone 6 & Hackintosh. Should i do a fresh install with the new SMBIOS & Serial Number then pull my user account info from the time machine backup on post install (When setting up a user account)? My specs are below. Thanks in advance for any advice help. OSX version: OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 (15F34) Clover version: Clover 3556 Theme: Apple Style Clover installations: UEFI + PartitionDxe + Aptratiofix2 CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz RAM: 16GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77-DS3H Audio-Onboard: ALC887 GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB Mac Model(Smbios): Mac Pro 3,1 Boot flags(Arguments): dart=0 nvda_drv=1 kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0 WIFI/Bluetooth : BRCM20702 Hub (Combo Card made for an iMac)
  11. Hello I am new to this kind of stuff so i hope you can all give me some great advice and guidance with that said what I would like to do is. 1) Dual boot Mac OS X Yosemite or El Capitan with Windows 7 Professional 64 2) or just be able to set up one of the two above mentioned Mac OS in virtual-box with windows 7 as the host OS. 3) and get it to run, shutdown, update all without thrown panics, exceptions, or breaking the OS. Here is my system specs: Motherboard: MSI 970A-G43 (model no. 7693) I think it supports EUFI Processor: AMD FX-6300 6 Core Black Edition Video Card: DIAMOND ATI AMD Radeon HD 5750 PCIE 1024MB GDDR5. I have an alternative video card I can use, but i think it is not as good as the before mentioned one MSI AMD RADEON R6450-MD2GD3/LP except mine does not have the built in cooling fans as shown in the MSI photo mine just have the metal heat sink block but everything else seems to be the same. My sound and Ethernet drivers are ran from the motherboard and I believe them to be Intel chip set . Ram: 10 GB DDR3 1333 I would appreciate any and all suggestions and links, the only thing is I live on a limited income and budget and do not have the cash to just go out and buy new equipment with that said could you please help with the following: 1) which boot loader I should use and why. and or links 2) kernel flags and why or what they do and or links 3) any other information i will or may need to consider that i left out because I am ignorant of this subject. Thanks in advance!

  16. I have created an Enoch-bootable USB Installer volume for El Capitan, and after applying USB fixes, I can get it to boot all the way to the OS X Installer welcome screen. Unfortunately, my mouse is non-responsive at that point. I can get past the language selector screen by hitting return or enter, but can't get past the next screen (with the Back and Continue buttons at the bottom). My tab key works for switching the highlight outline from one button to the other, but hitting return/enter after highlighting the Continue button does nothing. The system will recognize a Cmd+Q, and put up the Quit dialog, but from there I can only get to the Startup Disk selector, and can't do a thing except reboot. Any ideas on what kernel flags or other fixes I need to get to the OS X installer with a working mouse (and keyboard)?
  17. Version Driver: Utility:


    This is a new updated kext and utility directly from MediaTek for the MT7610U and MT7612U network chipset. This utility was updated and released on January 20th 2016 on MediaTek website. I have the Netgear A6210 AC1200-WiFi USB 3.0 Adapter and it works perfectly under OSX 10.11.6 with USB 3.0 and 5GHz networks being recognized. It should work for any card with one of those two chips. UPDATE 10/1/2016 I have had some serious trouble updating my system to macOS 10.12 Sierra but I have finally seemed to have gotten it working. When I have done a clean install and installing this package afterwards, It didn't seem to work. However after updating a working copy of El Capitan to Sierra with this package already installed, it seems to work. So as of this post, this same package does work under macOS 10.12 Sierra but you might have some trouble like I have until mediatek performs their own official update. UPDATE 10/26/16 I have finally figured out what is going on with this installer package. When you run this package as is, it will not install the kext on macOS sierra. It will install the wireless utility and all associated files but not the actual kext. I have included the kext as a standalone as well. Install the Kext with kext utility then run the installer pkg. Reboot and you will have a perfectly working USB wireless stick. Confirmed working macOS 10.12.1 RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext.zip
  18. I have El Capitan 10.11.2 up and running on a test partition, and have resolved some of my post-installation issues (including USB, Ethernet and Audio). In iTunes, however, I am unable to play any of my iTunes Store-downloaded videos. All I get is a black screen, the time counter goes nowhere from the last saved timepoint, and don't even get any audio playing. Songs in the Music library play without any problems. Whatever is happening seems to be isolated to iTunes. YouTube videos will play in Safari OOB, and tvguide.com video clips will play after installing Adobe Flash Player. The DVD Player app even works! (something I could never get to work in SL or Mav.) Since iTunes is bundled with El Capitan, it would have to be using native kexts for video playback. Any ideas as to what might need patching to resolve this issue? Thanks.
  19. In need of some expert advice ! HELP ! Im trying to install El captain on a newly brought intel NUC5i3RYH, but i am not sure if this is even possible.. basically I've tried googling but some of the content is just beyond my expertise ... so if there is anyone out there willing to help me out , i would greatly appreciate it below are the Spec of my hardware http://ark.intel.com/products/84697/Intel-Core-i3-5010U-Processor-3M-Cache-2_10-GHz?q=5010U look forward to anything that might point in the right direction Thanks all !
  20. Hey guys ! Yesterday I installed El Capitan on my desktop and almost everything is working except audio. My motherboard is quite old, it's a Asus Maximus Formula (X38 chip, LGA 775 socket). On-board audio is on a small card called Supreme FX II. This card is not recognized at all, I think I need some kexts to make it work. Could someone help me to resolve this small issue ?
  21. Hello everyone, i want to ask something about kernel panic. I got this kernel panic after i tried to install clover bootloader on my HDD (MBR type, el capitan installed with MBR patch). Here's the picture of it: Before, i always use usb to boot into my el capitan, because whenever i tried to install clover on my HDD it always got error. And somehow last time i try to install clover r3330 on my HDD it got succeed , so i restart my el capitan. But, after i restart the boot option from hdd still not showing (still boot to windows directly), and i try to boot from usbdrive clover, it got KP like the picture above. How to fix that problem? Thanks before ---- Lenovo z480 core i7 3610QM ivy bridge intel HD4000
  22. I am attempting to install El Capitan on my AMD desktop Hack (see sig), using Clover (legacy boot) as bootloader. I can get Clover to start from the USB install flash drive, but when I select the Mac OS X Install volume, I get the white Apple logo on a black background, and it stays there forever. When I put a -v in the boot arguments, I just get an underscore cursor on the screen, and not a single message ever appears. Since I am upgrading from Snow Leopard, the latest version of Clover Configurator will not run on my system. Is there a back-level version that's 10.6 compatible? If not, I could go in an manually edit the config.plist, but need help on how to mount the EFI partition on the Desktop so that I can get to it in the first place. Also, I have downloaded the AMD kernel for El Capitan, but can't figure out where to put it, or where the vanilla kernel is at that I need to be replacing. From what I've been reading here, it's supposed to go in System/Library/Kernels, but no such folder exists on the OS X Base System I copied from--nor can I find the kernel anywhere on that volume (and yes, I do have hidden files showing). So where exactly is the kernel supposed to be now? Thanks, and Happy New Year! Pete
