  1. ASUS X555LB-NS51 "HacBook Pro"

    Hey @Dmos, thanks for covering for me. @mrnewba, I no longer have this laptop so I will not be updating the guide further. Dmos is right, the Other folder is better if you don't want to keep moving your kexts every OS revision. You should be using EMlyDinEsH's Smart Touchpad Driver, which I should've included in the post installation kexts. You should definitely be patching your DSDT. If your laptop doesn't have an NVIDIA GPU then you can skip any steps in that stage past Step 3, and omit the patch in Patch DSDT > Step 4 starting with `into method label _REG parent_hid PNP0C09 insert`.
  2. VoodooI2C for ELAN1200 Trackpad

    Version 1.0.4


    This copy of alexandred's VoodooI2C (normally for use with ELAN1000) has been patched for use with ELAN1200 trackpads, and is confirmed compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Recommended install location is [ESP]/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/[OS Version].
  3. OS X boot loader path

    This is expected. AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement is an Apple kext, and is located at /S/L/E. Weird, NCPM should've solved any AICPUPM woes for that dual Xeon setup. Have you tried placing it in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other? Maybe installing it to /S/L/E and booting without caches might work?
  4. Dual display with ATI HD 4870

    Sounds to me like graphics acceleration isn't fully working. If this happens with any of the framebuffers you've tried, then you'll likely need to make your own patched one. I linked a tutorial on how to do that farther up in the thread.
  5. Best Monitor with 144Hz refresh rate

    Hi Daniel, Nice choice! What GPU are you rocking? For anyone else reading and interested in a high refresh rate monitor, I would recommend one with Adaptive Sync technology relative to the brand of your graphics card. Some entry level samples are included below: NVIDIA - G-Sync Acer XB241H AMD - FreeSync Acer XF240H
  6. Dual display with ATI HD 4870

    Hi, If you have no signal at boot, it may indicate that a different or patched framebuffer is required. Depending on what bootloader you're using, the invocation of a different framebuffer differs: Chameleon/Enoch/Chimera AtiConfig=framebuffer Clover [more info] <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>FBName</key> <string>framebuffer</string> </dict> I would recommend trying the Radeon framebuffer first. If that doesn't work, then it is likely you will have to take the patch route.
  7. OS X boot loader path

    Hi, I'm still not quite sure what you were trying to accomplish or if you were successful in your goal, but the Clover wiki has a page that should answer this particular question of yours: https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/What-is-what
  8. I'm surprised that old kext even worked in Sierra. You're lucky it didn't break your system! From what I gather from the comments section of the file you used, if your card isn't being recognized properly by the kext alone, you'll need some kind of DSDT patch to get it properly recognized, although the OP wasn't very specific as to what kind of patch was necessary. However, I would advise that you halt any further work on the GT 540M, delete the installed kext, and focus your efforts on disabling it, as NVIDIA Optimus does not work in macOS. You'll be able to achieve full graphics acceleration and save a lot more battery if you stuck with your HD 3000.
  9. Pentium G3258 / GA-H81M-DS2V "Hac mini"

    Try toggling Graphics Injection in Clover. Semi-older cards like Fermi/Kepler didn't need any graphics injection, but iirc many of the older NVIDIA cards i.e. your 8400GS needed to be injected.
  10. ASUS X555LB-NS51 "HacBook Pro"

    Derp: I don't think I'm using AppleALC for this machine, it's been awhile since I've had to dig into the internals. I'll have to check up on that, but if you continue the DummyHDA route, you'll need to generate a new one with AppleHDA Patcher. You can find the touchpad driver here.
  11. ASUS X555LB-NS51 "HacBook Pro"

    I've got macOS Sierra running pretty good on this laptop. Off the top of my head, the only things you should need to update are AppleALC and the touchpad drivers.
  12. After my little brother upgraded to an i5-4590 / GA-B85M-DS3H-A / R9 390, the leftover parts were available to mold into a "Hac mini" for my mom. Specs: CPU: Intel Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2V RAM: 4GB DDR3-1600 Storage: ADATA Ultimate SU800 128GB GPU: Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 Case: Rosewill SRM-01 mATX Case PSU: Antec Basiq 350W OS Version: macOS Sierra 10.12 Build-Specific Capabilities/Notes: Working SpeedStep via XCPM. [source] No need for NullCPUPowerManagement after everything is settled in. R9 270X via HDMI using 'Radeon' framebuffer. Futomaki or Hamachi would probably work better after modification, but for the moment, I'm too lazy. TRIM enabled for SSD via Clover patch. AppleALC didn't work for the ALC887 audio for some reason (tried all layout-id's; probably forgot binary patch via Clover, oh well), so I am using aDummyHDA + Clover binary patch by @Mirone. Pre-Installation: BIOS Settings: CSM set to Always Intel Virtualization Technology set to Disabled (you could try with it Enabled; I was getting bizarre kernel panics that stopped after I disabled it.) Intel Processor Graphics set to Disabled Jimmies: un-rustled Installation Guide: 1. Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. 2. Create a macOS Sierra installer: /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume [path to USB, i.e. /Volumes/USB] --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 3. Install the latest version of Clover to the installer USB, with the following parameters: [*] Install for UEFI booting only [*] Install Clover in the ESP [-] Drivers64UEFI |-- [*] OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 |-- [*] CsmVideoDxe-64 4. Place config-installation.plist in EFI/CLOVER, and G3258 - H81M-DS2V Kexts.zip in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12. 5. Boot the installer and install macOS. If you get a kernel panic relating to "No kext summary", try moving your RAM to different slot(s). If you get a kernel panic relating to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, then the kernel patch in the .plist wasn't enough, and you'll need to add NullCPUPowerManagement to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12. You can remove NCPM on/after Step 6. 6. Use the installer USB to get into macOS, then install Clover to the local disk. Don't forget to copy over config-installation.plist and the kexts from earlier. 7. Run Mirone's AppleHDA Patcher with the following parameters: Realtek ALC887 VD layout-id 5 8. Copy aDummyHDA.kext from ~/Desktop/MironeAudio/10ec0887/[AppleHDA version]/Clover to /System/Library/Extensions, then repair permissions: cd /System/Library; sudo chmod -R 755 Extensions; sudo chown -R 0:0 Extensions; sudo touch Extensions You do not need to worry about the config.plist in the same directory; it's contents are already part of the .plist we've been using. 9. Run ssdtPRGen.sh, then copy ~/Library/ssdtPRGen/ssdt.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. 10. There are a couple entries in my config.plist that, so far, have been commented out (i.e. "<key>#Devices</key>"; the "#" is a comment). Go ahead and uncomment those (i.e. <key>Devices</key>). Also, now would be a good time to rename 'config-installation.plist' to just 'config.plist'. 11. Don't forget to generate unique SMBIOS data via Clover Configurator! That... should be it. Reboot, and enjoy your new Hackintosh! If any issues occur, or if I left something out, please don't hesitate to let me know below.
  13. Touchscreen macOS Sierra

    Congrats on the successful install! I haven't seen many touchscreen Hackintoshes, let alone successful ones. Can you expand more on your boot problem? * Are you booting in legacy or UEFI? * If the latter, is Secure Boot / Fast Boot disabled? * Have you tried toggling CSM, if you have the option? * Is your config the same on the ESP as whatever you're booting from? * What drivers do you have installed in drivers64uefi? Are some of the things not included with your original post.
  14. ASUS X555LB-NS51 "HacBook Pro"

    Hello, You must be forgetting something. My laptop behaved similarly when I: Didn't disable Drop OEM SSDT Didn't enable KernelPm Make sure those are taken care of before proceeding. Cheers!
  15. Asus B85M-G + Intel® Core i5-4460

    Install the latest version of AppleALC to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12.
