    [GUIDE] Clover EFI Bootloader

    This topic still being useful at meaning of troubleshooting issues and usage concept, but for updated instructions on Configuration Files and DSDT Patches, keep your eyes here >?http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home ? Hi everyone! I'm here to present you Slice's new EFI Bootloader! Clover v2 It is open source based on different projects: Chameleon, rEFIt, XNU, VirtualBox. The main is EDK2 latest revision. Credits and copyrights remain in the sources. http://cloverefiboot.sourceforge.net/ Main features: - boot into 10.4 - 10.8 OSX, Windows EFI and Linux EFI - boot into LegacyOS (WindowsXP, Linux, DOS) by their bootsectors - this is EFI bootloader so it provides RuntimeServices for OS that impossible for Legacy Bootloaders - mostly Clover do automatic detection of hardware and set all properties by default. But user can change them by config.plist - With Clover you may restart into other OS from Startup Disk prefPane - With Clover you boot your OS X's Recovery HD, impossible for others bootloaders - config autodetect by OEM product name - UUID written into config.plist will be the same as in OS - autopatch OemDSDT for working OSX - SMBIOS will be corrected to standard 2.6 - ACPI will be corrected to standard 4.0. Custom DSDT will be loaded from booted partition or from EFI folder - MADT table may be corrected to resolve problem with NMI on some hardware - ACPI tables loading (SSDT-xx, APIC, BOOT, SLIC, SLIT, SRAT, UEFI...) - correctly set PowerProfile for laptops (notebooks), desktops, workstations - customizable RestartFix - sleep/wake fixes - PCIRootUID value (0,1) for device-injection for those who can't edit DSDT - Graphics Properties Injector for ATI, NVidia and Intel for wide range of supported cards. Also customizable. - Custom EDID for non-DDC monitors - USB fix (LegacyOff, Ownership, Builtin, clock-id) up to USB 3.0 - HDA injector, HDMI fix. - Ethernet builtin injector - CPU turbo - P- and C-states generator - PLimitDict and UnderVoltage for CPU Speedstep - patch kernel on the fly for unsupported CPU like Atom and Ivy Bridge - Patch AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement for native Speedstep (Intel Processor) of ASUS ownwers - patch kexts inside kernelcache for unsupported hardware - extra kexts loading - security mode for FireWire - default boot after timeout - customizable GUI: themes support, own icons, fonts, animations. - there is a possibility to implement national languages and fonts. F1 - multilingual help - saving boot.log in OS and preboot.log from GUI by typing F2 - save original (OEM) ACPI tables by pressing F4 - test DSDT patching with F5 - save videoBIOS into EFI/misc by pressing F6 - saving screenshots from GUI typing F10 - CD/DVD eject by F12 and refresh menu after CD insertion If you have questions please provide outputs from DarwinDumper (Trauma tool).

    Since 2010 there were rumors that Apple uses customized HM55 chipsets for graphics switching. Apple Mods Intel Chipset for Auto GPU Switching Inside Apple?s automatic graphics switching | Ars Technica MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Teardown - Page 2 - iFixit Many trials have shown, that is indeed impossible to set up a Hack with e.g. a HD4000 iGPU and a GT330M. As Apple´s OS does not differ for Macs or Hacks a modified platform controller seems to be logical. With Haswell Apple uses a unmarked Intel platform controller hub, so one can only guess what customizations have been done. MacBook Air 13" Mid 2013 Teardown - iFixit Good bye logic board and lets be prepared for a hard time with Hackintosh.

    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 be 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. If you wish to use it as a base for writing your own guide, I just ask you to link to my topic. Good hacking!

    [GUIDE] OS X 10.6 on AMD

    OS X 10.6 on AMD - The only guide you'll ever need You are using AMD, but you have no idea how to install OS X on your pc? Follow this guide and soon you'll be running OS X! Installing OS X on a normal desktop computer has been exclusive to Intel-based systems for a long time. Since the release of the first AMD kernel for Mac OS X 10.4.8, many AMD-users have been trying to Hackintosh their computers too. Things got easier when Mac OS X 10.6 was released, when pro-AMD developer Nawcom released AMD-kernels and his ModCD. This whole guide is based on his work, so we’re very happy that he did all this work just for us, AMD-users! What you’ll need: A Gigabyte AMD (890X maximum) or nForce motherboard, ASUS AMD (790X maximum) or nForce motherboard. An empty harddisk, the used filesystem does not matter at the moment A retail Snow Leopard DVD An empty cd or DVD Patience! What’s in my pc? Before proceeding with this guide, please make sure you have collected all of your system’s hardware information. The Windows application CPU-Z can help you with this. This guide is seperated in two different methods, one for AMD chipsets and one for Nforce-based chipsets. Follow the method optimized for your system. Please read the guide in advance! If you encounter anything unfamiliar or see something you don’t quite understand, feel free to ask in the forums. The installation 1) Configuring the BIOS The first thing you’ll need to do is to adjust some settings in your motherboard’ BIOS. To access yours, press the key that corresponds to the BIOS settings when you power on the system. This is mostly something like F12 or the Delete-key (DEL). The good thing here is that most AMD and Nforce BIOS’s are similar but not always the same. That’s why we can’t tell the exact naming of some things, but we can tell you what to look for. Here is a list of things you should adjust to make your hardware Hackintosh-ready: Change the SATA-mode to AHCI. By default, it is configured as IDE, so you’ll need to change it to AHCI. Don’t change this when you have a working Windows-installation, it will break it! Configure standby mode to S3. Some manufacturers already have this mode as default. If this is not the case, change it to S3 or S3 (STR). Adjust Boot Device Order parameters. The first steps in installing OS X on your machine require booting from a cd. Make sure your optical drive is set as the first boot device. The second item in the order should be the hard drive where you are going to install OS X on. 2) Getting to the installer and preparing your hard drive The first thing you’ll need to do is downloading and burning Nawcom’s ModCD onto an empty cd. You can download the .iso file from here. When the burning has been finished, reboot your computer and let it boot from it. When it is booted, follow these steps to iniate the installation: If everything went well, you should be greeted with the bootloader. Now, swap your ModCD with your retail Snow Leopard copy. Give it some time to read the disc and press F5. When the icon saying “Install Snow Leopard?? appears, press your Enter-key. Some text will appear, Wait until the line “Press any key to continue?? appears. Press any key to continue. For a period of time, the only thing you’ll see is a bunch of white text scrolling down on a black background. This is the retail DVD trying to boot the installer. This could take a while and don’t panic when it seems stuck. After a while, the installer should come up. You may press Continue. Accept the license and click the button Utilities found in the menubar. A drop-down list will appear. One of the options there is Disk Utility. Click on it and the window will appear. We can manage and format our hard disks with this tool. On the left side, you’ll see all of your hard drivers. Select the one where OS X will be installed on and click on the Format-button. Select “Mac OS X Formatted (Journaled) as filesystem and give it a pretty name. 3) Customizing your installation We are getting closer to actually installing OS X. What we need to do now is to select the right kexts for your chipset. Pay attention now, because this is where the guide will be divided in two. One for each type of chipset, AMD and Nforce. A dialog will appear where you can select where you want to install Snow Leopard onto. In the bottom left corner is a button called Customize. Click it. A list box will show up. Click the arrow next to Custom options. You’ll need to select certain things here, which are different for each chipset. Follow the steps for your chipset. AMD chipset Select the following options: Legacy Kernel AppleATIATA VoodooHDA Networking should’ve been detected automatically and do not select GraphicsEnabler and Sleepenabler! Nforce chipset Select the following options: Legacy Kernel AppleNForceATA VoodooHDA Networking should’ve been detected automatically and do not select GraphicsEnabler and Sleepenabler! 4) The actual installation When all options are selected, we can proceed to the installation. Press OK on the list box and click Install. Installation can take up to 20 minutes! If it seems stuck after a couple of minutes, move the mouse and in most cases it will work again. 5) Post-installation Hooray! You are getting closer and closer to have a working AMD Hackintosh! You’ll just need to follow these last steps to make your installation boot on it’s own, and make it safe for updates that will be installed in the future. When the installation is done, the system will reboot itself. Swap your retail Snow Leopard copy back for the ModCD. Let it boot until you reach the bootloader. Select your own Snow Leopard partition here with the direction keys and press Enter when you have selected it. Have patience here as the first boot always takes a lot of time. Probably will take between five and ten minutes. When booted, fill in the forms given by OS X. This can be a bit sluggish, that’s because the graphics card is not yet installed. Now we need to install a bootloader, so that our system can boot on it’s own. Something like Chameleon v2.1 will do. The one we’ll be using can be found here. Extract the file using the built-in unarchiver. You’ll end up with a .pkg file. You can execute it by double-clicking on it. Follow the steps given in the installer and finish installation. Reboot your system and eject the ModCD. Your Hackintosh can now boot on it’s own. If everything went well, you should be greeted with the OS X desktop. There are still a few things missing, including graphics acceleration. We’ll fix that in the next chapter. 6) Some graphics acceleration for you, sir? Graphics acceleration is absolutely needed for having the perfect OS X experience. Without it, everything will be pretty sluggish and slow, and certain applications won’t even work. This is one of the reasons why it is necessary to have read this guide before doing the actual installation. However! Nowadays, most (modern) graphics cards are supported due to the updates Chameleon has got in the recent years. The following steps can be applied to most graphics cards; if it does not work out for you, let us know in the forums! That way we can search a solution for you! GraphicsEnabler is an automatic graphics card injector built into your Chameleon bootloader. It has got more compatible with different cards over the years, so chances are high it will work with your system too! Most cards from Nvidia: from the 7xxx series all the way to the modern 5xx cards (although not always stable) Modern cards from AMD: HD5xxx to HD6xxx are out-of-the-box, older cards are trial and error. To check if it works with your current setup, simply type in GraphicsEnabler=yes when in the bootloader. Chameleon then will boot with that given parameter. If it works (eg. you have a transparent menubar), follow the next steps so we can make it permanent. Open Finder and click on the Go option in your menubar. A dropdown list will appear with the Go to folder option. Click it and enter the following: /extra A Finder window will appear. There will be a file called org.chameleon.boot.plist. Click and drag the file to your desktop, to make sure it is editable. Open the file and underneath the last line, type in the following: org.chameleon.Boot.plist <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> Put the edited file back so it overwrites the previous one. Reboot OS X and enjoy your working GPU!

    We all know that UEFI Firmware sooner or later will permanently replace BIOS Firmware... The UEFI firmware has many advantages over the BIOS firmware, for those who want to know them, take a look here > http://www.uefi.org/faq Here > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface And at this nice article > http://www.extremetech.com/computing/96985-demystifying-uefi-the-long-overdue-bios-replacement For those who already know UEFI, sometimes, as we're still under adaptation, we may find ourselves in some tricky situations that with the older BIOS firmware, we couldn't fix easily without a OS, but with UEFI firmware... Of course we can! With UEFI firmware, we can execute (U)EFI applications without the need of any preinstalled OS... Here are some examples that may surprise some users... Shell > https://edk2.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/edk2/trunk/edk2/EdkShellBinPkg/FullShell/X64/Shell_Full.efi Command Line Interface. Microsoft EFI Utilities > http://www.intel.com/technology/efi/agree_diskutil.htm Diskpart (Disk partitioning utility), Efifmt (EFI Format utility) and Efichk (EFI Check Disk utility). GPTSync > http://refit.sourceforge.net/doc/c2s3_shell.html Tool to synchronise legacy MBR partition table with the GPT partition table. Memtest > http://www.memtest86.com/index.html Tool to test Memory Modules and check System Information. There are also some alternative bootloaders like rEFInd and rEFIt that may be useful for "Advanced and Power Users"... rEFInd > http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/ rEFIt > http://refit.sourceforge.net Nice! But... How this information will help me? Well, I'm sure that many people disagree, but, to have all tools (not bootloaders) listed above at your EFI partition, are needed around 5mb, and believe me, they may be a life saver... For example, with the (U)EFI Shell we can load (U)EFI Drivers and Applications to access filesystems and get some needed information that for any reason, you can't get from the OS... You will have access to all partitions, from Internal or External devices, that are recognised by the Shell... You can have "Read" access to the following filesystems using an appropriate (U)EFI Driver...

For those who want 32bit binaries, you can try to follow this guide... >?http://osxbook.com/book/bonus/chapter4/efiprogramming/ Some tweaking will be required though as this is a bit old article... Good news for those who need 32bit binaries! Andy Vandijck (AnV) Ported the EFIFS Drivers to use EDKII instead of GNU EFI, so now, you can take them from here (64bit binaries also available) > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/300222-updated-efi-filesystem-drivers-efifs-ported-to-edk2/#entry2051091 Thank you AnV! To load a (U)EFI Driver, use the example below by changing fsX:\DRIVER_FOLDER with the right path to the driver and DRIVER.efi for the driver name... cd fsX:\DRIVER_FOLDERload DRIVER.efimap -r FAT16/32 Filesystems are the only filesystems with native "Read and Write" support under UEFI firmware... By having Read and Write access to FAT filesystems, you can easily manage bootloaders, that in our case, as we are Hackintoshers, this is really handy, for Clover and also Chameleon users... Obviously, the partition where the bootloader is installed must be FAT32 formatted (standard for ESP (EFI) partition) as we can copy/move/rename/delete/create?files and directories... We can also manage "Boot Entries" using bcfg from the (U)EFI Shell... For example, we have Memtest's binary at the EFI partition and we want to call it independent of the bootloader (Clover in this case, as it is the only true (U)EFI bootloader for Hackintoshes), we only have to run the following commands... First, to know an available entry... bcfg boot dump You will see an output similar to the below one... Following the example, we have three entries and we will add the fourth... Assuming that your ESP (EFI) partition is "fs0" (you have to find him), we will run the following command... bcfg boot add 3 fs0:\EFI\Memtest_X64.efi "Memtest" After run the command, if you run bcfg boot dump again, you will see your new entry added... After this, you can start Memtest during the machine's startup by pressing F8 key for example, and selecting the "Memtest" entry... To remove an "Boot Option", for example, rEFInd (still using the Image above as example), use the following command... bcfg boot rm 0 After run the command, if you run bcfg boot dump again, you will see that rEFInd isn't between you available Boot Options anymore... Here is a (U)EFI Shell Command Reference list > http://www.sysadminshare.com/2012/01/efi-shell-commands.html I hope that this information may help you to understand better what you have at your hands... And if you have any tip, feel free to share it here!

    SDD + HDD Fusion - Questions

    Hi OSx86! My birthday was yesterday, so I got a lot of money (I turned 18). I figured I might buy an 120gb SSD to speed up my system:). I'm currently using iAtkos L2 (Considering moving to iAtkos ML), and I'm wondering if it's possible to create a successful fusion drive using standard HDD and a SSD (Maybe the Kingston SSDNow V300 120 GB). Also which SSD would be preferable in speed and price(not too much past 100$). ? Thank you forum, I love you all ? EDIT: I'm thinking of buying the?120 GB Crucial M500 SSD

    [GUIDE] EDID injection

    Your graphics framebuffer kext is correctly loaded, but you receive no image after boot messages (aka black screen); Your display seem to work fine only randomly; You have blinking screen or many artifacts. EDID injection is a likely solution for all of these! The Clover bootloader makes it very easy to be done 1. On Windows, download and run RW-Everything (this one has multiple interesting utilities but you can use any other, like EDID Viewer, Phoenix EDID Designer, and possibly others...) Note: Linux is also capable of dumping EDIDs, but for my laptop's built-in display, it was only possible through Windows. If you want to try it from Linux, I recommend this guide here. 2. Assuming you're using RW-Everything, click on EDID button. You'll see something like this: (don't copy, it won't work for you, EDIDs differ for each display and this is mine) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 4C A3 00 02 FF FF FF FF10 00 15 01 03 80 1D 10 FF 2F 00 00 A0 57 49 9B 2620 10 48 4F 00 00 00 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 0130 01 01 01 01 01 01 9E 1B 56 78 50 00 18 30 30 2040 25 00 25 A5 10 00 00 19 00 00 00 FD 00 00 3C 0050 D9 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0060 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0070 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 CC 3. Copy and paste it on notepad. Erase the first line and the first column, they are just references, not part of the EDID.

My guide in my signature contains my config.plist attached, you can check it if you're still not feeling sure. Any further doubts, please post here! Thanks to kyndder for originally explaining the process in the Clover bootloader thread.

    This guide is now depreciated. Anyone using a version of OS X greater than or equal to 10.11 (earlier versions may work; 10.11 is what I have tested) should use AppleALC.

    9IO Service superclass changed?

    I thought about putting this thread in Hardware Questions>>>Audio and Sound but it's not really Audio but MIDI, and even more precisely a general question regarding an error message about refusing a kext during bootup in verbose mode. ? I am trying to use a USB-MIDI interface called a Steinberg Midex 3 in various Leopard 10.5 distros. The installer package I am using comes directly from their website and it states there it is compatible with OS X 10.5 thru to 10.8. ? It works OK in various Snow Leopards (10.6.1, 10.6.2, 10.6.3, 10.6.6) but not in any version of 10.5 so far. ? In Leopard, the driver always installs flawlessly and quickly with "Installation Successful" message, and the kext can be seen in System>>Lib>>Extensions. When I plug in the interface various things are supposed to happen: 1) the unit's main LED should light up to show it is receiving MIDI power; 2) the Midex 3 icon should be seen in AudioMIdiSetup (AMS)>>Midi Window; and 3) then when I start a MIDI application such as Cubase, the rest of the unit's LEDs will light. None of this happens in Leopard. ? Instead, I can see the following messages during verbose mode (-v) bootup of the OS: ? de.Steinberg.Midi?USBFwLoader is not compatible with its superclass. 9IO Service superclass changed?(in white text on black background) ? and ? Failed to load extension?de.Steinberg.MidiUSBFwloader?(yellow text on black background)? ? Can someone please tell me why this driver is not getting loaded? Is there a parameter in the kext I could change using Property List editor? ? Attached is the kext file. I can upload the installer package too if you can't find it for yourself on the Steinberg-dot-net website. Edit: Couldn't figure out how to do the attachments. Wouldn't work for me. ? Oh and by the way, this product is legacy which means it is no longer supported by the manufacturers, and I got a strong hint from them on their forum that they wouldn't have been supporting it on a Hackintosh anyway.

    Intel DG41TY motherboard

    Hello, I was drawn to your site/board because people here have apparently managed to get MacOSX to run on this board. I have never attempted building a hackintosh before and would appreciate any pointer as to where to start. I don't need to run the absolute latest, a version known to work on this HW with instructions would be great. ? So, my motherboard is an intel dg41ty, pentium E6600 CPU, 4GB RAM DDR2, 320GB sata drive, IDE dvd-writer. ? From what I have read the onboard intel X4500 video chip might not be supported, so I can use a pci-e nvidia 9400GT I have as graphics adapter. ? I am also wondering whether I should use USB or PS2 keyboard and mouse, IDE/SATA dvd, switch the BIOS to EFI mode, the sata drive to AHCI or leagcy...

    Hi! ? This is my first time on this forum and I'm not used to using Macs so if I make a mistake, don't bash me. I have a modified OSInstall.mpkg and I want to replace it with the original file in Mac OS X Install ESD. I tried deleting the original file but I receive an error message that the file cannot be deleted. I checked my permissions and it said that I had the right to read and write files yet I cannot delete the original file. Any ideas? Feedback is appreciated. Thanks! ? ? ?Uploaded with ImageShack.us? ?Uploaded with ImageShack.us ?

    Hey Guys, by reading some post and issues...i see a lot of people which have problems with their Hardware in addition to the OSX Software. I'am using now for 2 years OSx86 Distributions like iAtkos or Original OS with MB{censored} or stuff like that but before i install or build a Hackintosh i compare my hardware with the MacTracker App on my iPhone. After i checked Hardware i go to websites like OSx86 or tonycrap - CustoMac and compare if my hardware is listed and if the parts run OOB or some kexts are needed. In 99% the hardware i bought works absolutly fine without any problems or issues. Built up my Mac-PC, use the USB Stick to install Mac OS , install Apps and Programs and it works . Sometimes the most identified problem was the soundcard but i patched it with a kext from osx86,net and everything is fine. So don't worry just do it. Find the correct hardware and you hack a Mac ;-) Thanks to all people in the OSx86 community who work so hard every day that we could enjoy this fantastic OS on any platform.

    This tutorial is ment to be an all in one solution to install OS X Lion on Bulldozer (or similar) AM3+ CPUs that support the SSSE3 instruction set. My patch will only work for these CPUs. I take no credit for the kernel included with this patch. Only the patch script itself. This thread would not be possible without the work of the guys over here. Be sure to thank them! Goal: 64bit Kernel, 64bit Userspace, Run 32bit and 64bit Applications Required Files N{censored} OS X 10.7.3 V2: Download Here Google is your friend! DH4's Lion Bulldozer Patch: Download Here Hardware used for this tutorial ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AMD FX-4100 Quad Core 3.6GHz 4GB DDR3 1333 RAM 60GB Corsair SSD GeForce GT 530 1GB M5A97 LE R2.0 Drivers / Kexts - Working 100% Audio Driver (Realtek ALC877): Download Here (Unofficial VoodooHDA v2.8.2 - noise and pop free) Ethernet Driver (Realtek 8111F): Download Here (Apply changes in System Preferences --> Networking) PROOF - Running Lion with Chrome (32bit), which would not run before this patch. 1. You can burn the N{censored} ISO from any operating system. On Windows, I recommend ImgBurn, its free. For Mac just use Disk Utility. This would also be a good time to burn the extra files to a CD, or keep them on a flash drive, etc. 2. Setup your Bios On the M5A97 LE, I restored optimized defaults, turned off all AMD specific modes/instruction sets except for AMD Virtualization. Make sure SATA mode is set to AHCI on every port/controller. 3. Boot from the N{censored} 10.7.3 V2 DVD, when prompted press F8. 4. Boot the Install DVD with these boot flags: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v 5. That should get you into the installer. I had a set_colors kernel panic, so i used: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 colors=32 -v If you have more than 4GB of ram you may also have to use: maxmem=4096 6. Follow the installer until you get to the point of selecting your Install location. 7. In the Menu Bar, select Utilities -> Disk Utility. 8. Select your disk, use erase to format your drive. Use Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system. 9. Quit Disk Utility. 10. When you are back in the installer, select your partition, and click Customize. 11. Select the AMD Kernel, don't worry about selecting the the arch=i386 stuff for the boot loader. I also used Graphics Enabler and NvInjector for my GeForce GT 530, worked oob with QE/CI. Select any other optional drivers you need. If you are unsure, do not select anything, as it can cause kernel panics. It's better to research and find the right driver for your hardware. Post on these forums if you need assistance, thats exactly what we are here for! 12. Start the OS X installation. 13. When the Installation is done, you can eject the N{censored} DVD at reboot. Press any key at boot loader to stop the auto boot. 14. Type the following boot flags: arch=i386 -force64 -v I had to use colors=32 with the GT 530. Use maxmem=4096 if needed (the 64bit kernel will fix this). 15. Follow the setup wizard. When you are done, you should be able to login to your desktop. 16. Extract DH4s Lion Bulldozer Patch.zip (double click). 17. Copy the contents to the root of your OS X Install, and authenticate. 18. Double Click "DH4s Patcher" 19. Type in your password and press Enter. 20. When the patcher has completed, you can reboot your computer. Now, you can install any additional drivers (audio and ethernet for example). Enjoy your new Hackintosh! Other Thoughts This kernel should support 10.7.4 but I have not updated yet, so cannot guarantee this, nor provide an outline to make it work. Upgrade at your own risk. ;-) I have been having issues with Adobe Master Collection CS6, I am unsure if it is my download causing the issues. Or a bug with being on an AMD platform. However CS5 seems to work without issues. So, I'm happy with that for now. Let me know If you get CS6 working. Everything else I have tried on this Hackintosh has worked perfectly! Absolutely no kernel panics after this patch :-) If you notice any typos, or any info I forgot to add, just let me know! Thanks, Wayne

    Clevo p150em Hackintosh

    I generally dont post in forums, because I have almost always found what i needed in existing ones. I owned a Macbook in College and loved it. I had one of the first intel models with a dual boot windows XP. I bought this new computer because I am in the Army and wanted a portable gaming platform for my travels, and windows was the best OS for that. After about a month I missed my Mac, especially for things such as music, photos and iPhone syncing. Thats when I started my research. I am building a dual boot OS X and Windows 8 PC. I have successfully installed 10.8.4 after about two weeks of torture. I have got graphics (Intel HD4000, not my Nvidia 670mx yet), sound (realtek HDA), and all the other essentials like keyboard (backlight included), built in cam, trackpad and USB 3.0 ports all working. I have an Atheros AR9485 wireless card, and from what I have found this is not yet running successfully on anyone's Hackintosh. For now I am using my windows partition, and my iPhone (USB) for internet on my Hackintosh. Really the only big things I am missing is the wireless/ethernet, switchable graphics for my Intel HD4000 (working), and my Nvidia 670MX (not working). In addition to that my built in fingerprint scanner is not working or recognized by OS X. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get these working it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks specs are Intel core i7 2.6GH Nvidia 670MX/Intel HD4000

    [TIPS]Kexts and DeviceID`s

    Hello Everybody!!!! I am here again to bring a tip to the users of kexts.com ... One of the most common things that happen when using a Hackintosh, is having to make some simple changes in kexts for a device to work properly ... But why do we have to do this?? When Apple uses a specific hardware, it approves this device, thus, it creates a driver (kext) to control the device, containing all Device Identifiers (DeviceID) to be used by this hardware ... This means that, whenever Apple is using that hardware, it must have The same sequence of Device Identifiers (DeviceID) which has been approved by Apple ... In the case of PC, in most cases, the devices have the same DeviceID`s used by Apple, but sometimes this may not happen and other times, Apple may remove a device from the list ... Sometimes, can not solve, but in others, only adding the new DeviceID can make the kext recognize it ... The first thing we need to discover, is the DeviceID of the hardware we are trying to activate, There are several ways to find that out, but the easiest is to use the System Info app. System Info Download > System Info - Downloads - Kexts.com Official Thread > olarila.com • Exibir tópico - System Info ? DPCIManager >?https://sourceforge.net/projects/dpcimanager/ ? As you can see in the image, it detects all devices on the machine and shows their VendorID and DeviceID ... Having the VendorID and DeviceID in hand, we now need to add it to the file "info.plist" that is inside the kext ... NOTE: Keep in mind that a "kext" is nothing more than a folder and its contents form a Kernel Extension ... First, create a copy of the kext that will handle in a safe place and then create another copy on your desktop, and this is the one that we will modify ... Click the right mouse button on the kext (for those using Apple mouse use CTRL + Click) and select "Show Package Contents"... A window will open with the contents of the kext, enter the folder "Contents", and again, click the Right-click on the file "info.plist", select "Open With" and navigate to your application to edit text files ... NOTE: In my case, I use TextWrangler.app but if you have`t, you can use TextEdit.app to make modifications to the file. Just be careful, when you save the changes, not allow the application to modify the file extension, it should be ".plist". If you have other termination than ".plist" changes have no will effect. "Okay, but where do I enter the information??" This can vary from kext to kext, usually the examples below are the most used, and you have to enter your DeviceID (and VendorID if necessary) according to the example for each "string" ... ? <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x813610ec</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID</string> <key>IOPCIMatch</key><string>0x816910ec 0x816710ec 0x816810ec 0x813610ec</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID</string> <key>IONameMatch</key><array><string>pci8086,27b8</string><string>pci8086,2811</string><string>pci8086,2815</string><string>pci8086,27b9</string><string>pci8086,27bd</string><string>pci8086,2670</string><string>pci8086,8119</string><string>pci8086,2916</string><string>pci8086,3a18</string><string>pci8086,3b00</string><string>pci8086,3b01</string><string>pci8086,3b02</string><string>pci8086,3b09</string><string>pci10de,aac</string><string>pci10de,aae</string><string>pci10de,aaf</string><string>pci10de,d80</string><string>pci10de,d81</string><string>pci10de,d82</string><string>pci10de,d83</string></array>Example = <string>pciVendorID,DeviceID</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x00f010de&0xfff0ffff0x019010de&0xfff0ffff0x040010de&0xfff0ffff0x042010de&0xfff0ffff0x05e010de&0xfff8ffff0x05f010de&0xfff0ffff0x060010de&0xffe0ffff0x062010de&0xffe0ffff0x064010de&0xffe0ffff0x06e010de&0xfff0ffff0x086010de&0xffe0ffff0x08a010de&0xffe0ffff0x0a2010de&0xffa0ffff0x0ca010de&0xffe0ffff</string>Example = <string>0xDeviceIDVendorID&0xfff0ffff</string> After editing the file and save the changes, we need to repair the file permissions ... For this, run the following command in teminal ... chown -R root:wheel /PATHTOTHEKEXT/NAMEOFTHEKEXT.kextchmod -R 755 /PATHTOTHEKEXT/NAMEOFTHEKEXT.kextNow we need to install the kext for this, use the program you want ... I use Kext Wizard to install kexts, repair permissions and rebuild the system caches ... Kext Wizard Download > Kext Wizard 3.7.10 - Downloads - Kexts.com Official Thread > Kext Wizard - InsanelyMac Forum Even with the Kext Wizard you can check if the kext is for 64 or 32bit ... Just navigate to the kext and click "Check" ... After installation, I recommend that you repair permissions and re-create the caches manually, running the following commands in the terminal ... ? sudo -sTYPE YOUR PASSWORDchown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/*kextcache -v 3 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext -z /System/Library/Extensionschown -R root:wheel /Extra/Extensions/*chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions/*kextcache -v 3 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext -z /Extra/ExtensionsNOTE: Sometimes there are "kexts" inside "kexts" as you can see in the example below ... The procedure to edit them is the same ... That done, just reboot the system ... And if all goes well, you should now be working with your device. I hope I have helped you with this tip ...

    I'm looking to upgrade my computer in the next month or two.... an iMac was the ideal option but considering the same specs for the mac / pc builds I was looking at came out to $1500 / 2500, the price became a tad of an issue, and considering I'm heading into my second year of college my price cap is about $2000. That being said I've been eyeing this: Customize CyberPower Black Pearl Gaming PC My plan was to get an iMac and bootcamp windows 7/8 so that I could run anything I need that was windows specific, and I'd been agonizing over whether to go plain windows or drop the extra cash to get a new iMac. I hadn't considered looking at it the other way around till I heard a Hackintosh mentioned on one of the part reviews i was looking through. So without further ado I was wondering if anyone could give me a tentative answer as to if the above link with the following parts would work, and if not if anyone could see a combination of parts in cyberpowers' customization page that would work well for a hackintosh. Case: Stock (CFI Taiji Full-Tower Gaming Case) CPU: Stock (i7-3820 Quad-Core 3.6 GHz 10MB Intel Smart Cache -- works as far as i've read) Cooling Fan: Stock (Asetek 510LC LCS) MoBo: GIGABYTE X79-UP4 Intel X79 Chipset Quad Channel DDR3 ATX RAM: 16GB (4GBx4) DDR3/1600MHz Quad Channel Memory - Kingston HyperX specification Graphics: Stock (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 2GB 16x Power Supply: Stock (800 Watts - Standard 80 plus yada yada) Harddrive: Stock (2TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD Data HD: Pondering the 120GB Kingston one, not sure if i wanna add it though Optical Drive: Stock (24x Double Layer Dual Format yada yada) Audio: Stock (doesn't have any specifications as to what the stock one is, so if any of the listed sound cards pop out i'd appreciate the suggestion) Thank you very much to anyone that takes the time to sift through this or has any advice for me, I'm doing my own research on compatibilities with OSx but I figured I'd try and get some advice / confirmation from someone with more experience than I have. (Also I won't lie, though I say college this is mainly going to be a gaming computer xD)

    Wifi Server

    Hello again! Recently im setting up a home server for web development. Trouble is I only have wifi access. So what Im looking for is of course a solution but to the setup Im hoping to use if possible! So I have a usb dongle connected to pc,(hackintosh) using mostly 10.9 dev3 and i have two wifi routers, The question is, Is it possible to bridge my connection from pc to one of the routers so i can setup port forwarding? Now I'm not very familiar at all with the likes of WAN or WLAN but I have been doing some research into but I need to get my head around it a bit better. there is a whisper that it is doable but the here say is running windows machines not hacks so I know I'm pushing it! Any spit ball ideas very welcome! Oh and I'm using OS X Server not that i think that matters but never the less.. Also maybe there is a router out there that would take the usb connection and possibly solve the problem all together? I dont mind spending to make it happen however the inner "hacker" in me is compeled to see if its possible!

    To use FakeID with Clover, you must have the following information in your config.plist. ACPI > DSDT > Fixes > Fix_Display_0100=TRUE Devices > FakeID > ATI=0xDeviceIDVendorID (for example 0x68E01002) Graphics > Inject > ATI=TRUE For El Capitan you should not use "Inject ATI" because that will give you a black screen after Sleep. The card will show in System Info as "ATI Radeon HD 5000 1024 MB" but who cares I had to set the frame buffer to “Shrike??? to get it working right. Graphics > FB Name > Shrike As you can see my Fake ID is 0x68e0. My real ID is 0x68F9. This should work for every HD5450 with Device ID 68F9 68E5 68e1 Working on a clean install without editing/patching kexts.

This way, will be more easy to provide help to this user… ? What the tool will dump from your system; ? > Loaded ACPI table. > Apple and non-Apple loaded kexts. > Bootloader's boot messages. > System messages. > IOReg. ? > Hardware Information with lspci. > Bootloader's configuration file. > System Profiler. ?

    iAtkos is not free anymore :(

    My opinion??? ? I think this is completely meaningless...? ? They are forcing users to donate to download piracy??? Donations should be an option, not a rule... ? Abusing the lack of knowledge of people who have no idea it would be a lot easier to find a colleague who already has an working Hackintosh or an real Mac and use myHack to create your own installer!!! ? myHack is free, OS X Mavericks is free, the support provided by this Forum and for most of the other are free...? ? So why should someone do something like that??? ? And do you know the worst???? ? People will make donations to download and use it in the same way that many people still think that the tools provided by TonyCrap are the best alternative to install OS X on their machines if after use his tools they can't even have support for them...? ? In short... Pure 3ull$h17...

    Maybe hope for once other manufacturers to release their Haswell laptops for it to be documented better.
