  1. Please note that unfortunately all of the attached files in this guide have somehow been taken down years ago. Unfortunately I don't have those exact files anymore, but on the brightside my main intention writing this guide was to make it as teaching as possible, so that you don't have "final solutions" but the "path" to them instead. I myself have used this guide many times since I wrote it. I know a lot has changed since then (big Clover updates, including totally different drivers, El Capitan is now 4 years old, etc. etc.) so if you're in the mood to write an updated version of this guide, I'm more than happy to help! 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 the community to release some driver updates The Clover bootloader is the main helper 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 OS's interpretation of your machine. That's why everything keeps working even after 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 could then be used 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: WiFi. Intel Centrino will probably never be supported, please replace it by a compatible one if you're willing to disassemble your laptop, or 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 specific job: researching. This is not meant to be and will never be a "next-next-finish" procedure, unless you want to have a crappy system, but I can't expect that if you want to use macOS. You will be able to have it installed 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 macOS builds, I don't take any responsibility for any problem that could occur in your machine. You should neither attempt this guide if you don't know how to boot a USB Live Linux, or how 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. Have on it! --------------------- 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 a FAT32 just-formatted USB drive (it will only take 200MB). If you prefer, you can download the Clover installer, replace VBoxHfs driver by HFSPlus driver, install the UEFI 64 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 macOS, as said. ------------------------------ On the BIOS setup: In the Advanced tab, change AHCI Mode Control to Manual, Set AHCI Mode to Enabled, and Fast BIOS Mode to Disabled. Notice the "Fast BIOS Mode" description: "Disabled means that the system can boot Legacy OS only". That's not true: It does boot UEFI OS even when Disabled! Moreover, you won't be able to boot from a USB drive if FAST BIOS is Enabled. If someday you decide to enable it, notice you'll need to use Esc+F2 whenever you want to enter the BIOS again (the usual F2 won't work anymore). 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 drive following OSXDaily's guide. The USB drive 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 macOS, 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 with the 3.0 one. Once you've booted from the USB, Clover should show up. Press the F4 key; this is going to save many 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 your boot hung 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 macOS to be installed, so you'll just have to be patient and use the display like that for the first moments... (or plug it to an external monitor) 5. Open the installation's Disk Utility (Menu 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 integrated 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 upgrade your system by having an SSD dedicated to the Mac, go ahead and get at least a 128GB one to replace your whole HDD. Another option is to create a Fusion Drive between the SSD and the HDD: this is the solution I used for years until I bought an SSD. People say the Fusion Drive also tends to corrupt more... Well, my installation got corrupted after 1 year, but the overall speed boost I get everyday definitely paid the price. 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 macOS to make the initial settings! ---------------------- On macOS: Installing kexts: Drag and drop kexts over Kext Utility. 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 are meant not only for crediting the original author but also for you to verify in the future if any updated versions are available. 2. Reboot and check if your Ethernet (cable) network is working (System Preferences > Network) 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 (this setting is 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.kext, 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 to apply in order for the NVRAM to 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 from the second reboot on everything worked 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 many of them 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 replace the 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 seemed to need this more often on Mavericks than I do 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, you can remove the *Bluetooth* kexts from /S*/L*/E* in order to remove the support; however, this won't turn off the hardware. 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 workaround 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 steps above (so it doesn't happen again) 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 sections at the 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 by using the caffeinate command, either followed by -t and the amount of seconds it should be kept running or really simply caffeinate for indeterminate await: 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 macOS 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 the SMBIOS section automatically filled. Besides the SmUUID, I've also cleared from the provided config.plist the RtVariables/ROM, RtVariables/MLB, SMBIOS/Board-ID and SMBIOS/Serial Number. All of these can be generated by Clover Configurator and I recommend you to do it as chances of getting a working App Store, iMessage and FaceTime are bigger with them. ------------------------------ 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 the installer tries to store some files in the SSD). 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. In order to recover Clover, boot Windows and connect your pen drive containing Clover. Hold the Shift key while you click on Restart to enter the "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 alongside macOS - Windows and Linux are 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 keep using a USB drive just 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. Feel free to use this as a base for writing your own guide, send me a beer or link to this topic if you do so Good hacking!

Hello, Firstly, my system specs: ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 Intel i7 4790K Nvidia Geforce GTX 980, reference model 16GB RAM, 1600 MHz 512 GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD (OS X) 256 GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD (Windows) LG 31MU97 (Monitor)(via DisplayPort for 4k @ 60 Hz) Side note: I will be referring to UEFI as BIOS in the following quandry. I have a bit of a problem... Allow me to get straight to the point. I have an ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 mobo. I purchased it to start building my first Hackintosh. As many of you may know, in order for a Hackintosh to run correctly, there are certain default settings in BIOS that must be changed. I had no problems doing this initially, and therefore, I was eventually able to get my Hackintosh up and running, however due to my limited knowledge at the time, I had some clover bootloader issues that I believe to be outside the scope of this question. Just for the sake of clarity, my Hackintosh was set up for dual boot. One SSD for OS X and another SSD for Win7 64-bit. Until now I've not really had the need to access OS X which is why I was semi-content with the aforementioned clover bootloader issues, wherein the clover bootloader would actually fail to post at all despite me setting the drive where it was installed as 1st boot priority. I would always boot straight into windows. Now, I've said all that to say that to get everything working correctly I have basically decided that I will have to start over and install everything again on freshly wiped drives. As said before, I am very aware of the changes that must be made to the BIOS in order correctly run OS X. Unfortunately that is where I'm having a bit of a problem. Every time I boot up and press del and actually manage to get through to BIOS(sometimes it just boots straight into Windows even though I'm pressing del like a maniac), everything just freezes. All I see is N/A everywhere, the names of my drives, the incorrect time and date, along with some mysterious and horrible video distortion(video does not distort at windows login). Any keyboard input results in nothing, and the mouse is just frozen in the middle of the screen. I also noticed that the "BOOT_DEVICE_LED" debug light is lit up on the mobo when the BIOS is in this frozen state, although the computer boots to Windows just fine(and even OS X when I disconnect the Windows SSD). So needless to say there is no way I can change the settings I need to for this Hackintosh to work properly. It is also worth mentioning that my monitor(LG 31MU97) is plugged via displayport in a Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 reference model, on water. I shouldn't have to plug my monitor directly into the mobo when trying to access BIOS, right? Per some experiments, Ive noticed that the video does not distort when using HDMI on the GTX 980. So maybe there is something about displayport? Normally I wouldn't really care if I had to use HDMI, but I need 4k at 60 Hz pretty much all the time when on the computer, so it'd be pretty inconvenient just to have to plug in an HDMI when I'm changing BIOS settings. I don't want to overload this thread with another drawn out question, so I'll post another question here about my Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 displayport issue. Ive tried everything I know. Flashed a BIOS update(multiple times) using BIOS Flashback, reset CMOS, re-flashed GPU BIOS. I want to get the ball rolling for my Hackintosh, but it seems I'm at a standstill until I can get this BIOS situation figured out. Sorry for my long-winded question. I just don't want to leave out any details. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks in advance:) Distorted Frozen BIOS - DisplayPort->GTX 980 Not Distorted Frozen BIOS - HDMI->GTX 980 BOOT_DEVICE_LED debug light

  5. 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)

    Ozmosis Bootloader by?xpamamadeus Abridged Edition by Lacedaemon Features include color-coded words and illustrative pictures for readers age 4 and below, and large-type font for seniors!? ? ? WARNING: You will void your warranty if you use any of these mods, and there is no guarantee that this will work at all. ? The Z77MX-QUO-AOS motherboard, made by Quo Computer, ships with a modified BIOS and the Ozmosis bootloader, which can supposedly run any OS. ? ? Oz•mo•sis - a UEFI-based bootloader that was designed to boot any OS, and runs directly from the BIOS. ? Through extensive testing on Aptio-based boards from Gigabyte, we have devised a successful installation procedure of Ozmosis on most UEFI-based motherboards. ? Suitable BIOS versions are those that can write to the NVRAM without using the EMUVariableuefi driver from Clover. ?To see if your BIOS is suitable to run Ozmosis, install Clover and check if NVRAM variables are preserved after reboot, without using?EMUVariableuefi: # In Terminal:nvram -p Ozmosis can load kexts from the BIOS, which allows us to run OS X without modifying the vanilla installer. ? Now that you've read the terms and agreements, here's what you'll need: An NVRAM-writeable BIOS version. Can be found (if lucky) in a forum thread, or by trial-and-error. MMTOOL to manipulate modules inside the BIOS firmware. Ozmosis 1.01.0739M and it's associated drivers. Without a BIOS that allows access to the NVRAM, we cannot use Ozmosis for installation, but only to boot an already-installed system. First of all, you'll need to free some space in the current firmware for a successful mod. ?Check?how much free space there is in the firmware using MMTool. There is typically 7 KB free in an untouched Gigabyte BIOS.? Ozmosis will need about 570kb free space without kexts. ?To inject large amounts of kexts, you'll need to free more space. An easy way to make free space in the firmware is to compress the?COREDXE module.? Delete the default Filesystem?driver from the firmware because you'll use an enhanced version that works best with Ozmosis.? Inject?Ozmosis?and it's drivers into the firmware. ?With this, we can boot into OS X if we have FakeSMC and needed drivers in /S/L/E. To inject kexts in Ozmosis, they must first be converted to FFS format, which can be achieved using a script called?Kext2Ffs?by FredWsta and STLVNUB. ?Copy your kexts to the "Kexts" folder, run the script, and use MMTool to inject the output FFS into the firmware (compressed or uncompressed does not make a difference in functionality). ? Now we can flash this onto our motherboard and test. ? To change the SMBIOS, simply run the following commands in Terminal. ?Change the <> wrapped fields with your own SMBios.plist data:? sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:BiosVersion=<Mac.BIOS.Version>sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:ProductName=<MacFamily1,1>sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:SystemSerial=<S0M3S3R14LNMBR>sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:ProductFamily=<MacFamily>sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:ProductId=<Mac-BoardIDHere> Enjoy! ?

  8. Clover UEFI ? Introduction ? This tutorial is for installing Clover UEFI in?Lenovo G480. ? 1 -?To install the operating system in UEFI mode, your BIOS needs to have the?UEFI Boot option?and it needs to be activated. ? ? 2 -?Note that?UEFI/EFI?when this option is active, appears before the name of the drive. ? ? Format a USB drive as?FAT32?and install Clover in it. ? You need to have at least this in drivers / EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder. ? After you have installed, create the EFI/BOOT folder on the flash drive and copy the file to EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi ? Start the system by USB drive to test the UEFI boot. ? If everything went right, and with everything working, it's time to install the Clover EFI. ? For that EFI has to be formatted in FAT32. The "x" is the number of your EFI partition. ? To format the EFI partition as FAT32: diskutil list sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/diskXs1 Now mount the EFI: mkdir /Volumes/EFI sudo mount_msdos /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI Create a folder EFI on the EFI partition. ? Copy the EFI/Clover pen drive to folder EFI partition. ? Reboot with the flash drive inserted. In Clover menu, go to?Clover Boot Options?and select?Add as UEFI boot option. Now you will be able to boot Clover from EFI partition without the pen drive, in UEFI mode. ? [This option will only appear if the UEFI mode is activated] From now you can not start without the pen drive at Clover EFI partition in UEFI mode. ? An afterthought, when all set, delete the folders of other drivers drivers32UEFI, drivers32 and drivers64. ? What Works USB 3.0/2.0? HDMI video. Ethernet WiFi HD 4000 Touchpad ? What Doesn't Work VGA CardReader ?
  9. This article will show you an extremely easy way to add Windows 8 or 10 to your Hackintosh boot drive in just a few simple steps. This should work with any Lion or Mountain Lion install with your current bootloader as long as the logic board is full UEFI. Be prepared to re-install your bootloader's boot files if necessary. CREDIT This process was originally suggested by a guide at Mac-Hacks and enhanced in a tutorial at Gadget Unit. I further enhanced the process for Hackintosh. PREPARATION You will need your original OS X Installer drive. You will also need a Windows Installer. Either the DVD or an ISO copied to an 8GB memory stick. If your Windows DVD won't boot via EFI, you will have to set the Firmware Boot OS setting to Other rather than Windows 8, at least until after installing Windows. This will allow booting the DVD. The easiest way to copy the Windows ISO to a memory stick from OS X is to mount the ISO by double-clicking the file and format a USB flash drive in MS-DOS (FAT) with Disk Utility. Then open Terminal and enter the following: ? sudo ditto <drag mounted Windows Installer Here> <drag mounted USB Drive here> That's it! Give it a few minutes to complete. If you wish to skip the Activation screen, copy the following into a text document and save that as "ei.cfg". Place this file into the source folder on the flash drive. [Edition ID] Professional [Channel] Retail [VL] 0 This would allow you to advance into the installer to choose the Windows version via the index of the package When it's done, unmount both and remove the USB Drive. I recommend that any external drives are removed until this install is complete. RESIZE OS X Insert your OS X Installer drive and startup from it. Proceed to run Disk Utility. Select your boot drive (The drive above your Boot Volume). Select the Partition tab and then adjust the size of your Mac OS volume to clear the space for Windows below it. Press Apply to confirm the changes. If your OS X install has a Recovery partition, it will have automatically moved to immediately after the reduced partition. Quit out of Disk Utility and select Shut Down from the Apple menu. INSTALL WINDOWS Remove the OS X Install drive and insert the Windows Install disk. If using the Windows DVD, startup the computer, insert the DVD. Press the key to select Startup Drive for your computer and boot the Windows Installer. At the initial Installation screen, press <Shift> + <F10> to open the Command Prompt screen. Enter diskpart and then the following commands: ? list disk select disk X - X = The disk number of your destination drive. Usually 0. list partition - Verify that you have partition 1-EFI, 2-OS X and possibly 3-Recovery. create partition msr size=128 create partition primary format fs=ntfs quick label=Windows assign letter=C select partition 1 - This is the System or EFI partition. assign letter=S list volume - Note the letter of your Install drive or DVD. I'll assume it's D. If not, change the D designations below accordingly. exit We have now created all the partitions necessary for a proper Windows install. Now we need to copy over the Installation files to the Windows partition. Enter the following commands: ? cd \Windows\System32\ dism /apply-image /imagefile:D:\sources\install.wim /index:1 /applydir:C:\ The dism (Deployment Servicing and Management) tool is now installing the typical Windows install to your Windows partition. This is going to take a few minutes. Now's a great time to take a break and stretch… Note that the index is used to select from a multiple install package. For instance, the Windows 10 iso contains 8 packages. Windows 10 Pro is index:7 Next we'll install the Windows EFI boot files: ? C: bcdboot C:\Windows /l en-us /s S: /f UEFI You should receive a message that the boot files were successfully copied. You should now shutdown and remove your Windows Installer drive. Restart your computer pressing the necessary key to select the boot drive and select the EFI Partition. If you used Clover, simply select the Windows EFI Startup. Windows should proceed to complete the installation. When prompted, enter your Activation information. RESTORE BOOTLOADER If you have Clover installed, then all you need to do is set Clover Boot as the first EFI option your firmware's boot list. Other bootloaders simply require booting through your USB Installer and running the bootloaders installer again. If available, you can use the custom option of installing Boot0 only since that's all the Windows install would have changed.

  15. 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!

  21. Vejo que muitos ainda tem dificuldade para instalar os sistemas operacionais no modo UEFI. Com esse guia, as coisas ficarão mais fáceis. ? 1 - Seu BIOS precisa ter a opção UEFI Boot e ela precisa ser ativada. ? ? Observe que quando essa opção está ativa, aparece UEFI antes do nome do drive. ? ? ? Instalação do OS X ? Você pode criar um instalador?desta forma, ou baixar um pronto da minha assinatura. Não precisa iniciar o instalador no modo UEFI, só é necessário no passo seguinte, para instalar o Clover. ? IMPORTANTE: para instalar o Windows 7 ou 8 no modo UEFI, o esquema de partições deve ser GPT puro, não pode ser hybrid MBR como se usa no?modo BIOS, então ao criar as partições pelo Utilitário de Disco, não mude a partição do Windows para o formato MS-DOS (FAT), mantenha todas as partições no formato Mac OS Expandido (Reg. Cronológico), você vai mudar o formato da(s) outra(s) mais tarde. ? Instale o OS X na primeira partição. ? Edit: se você usou o instalador do 10.8.5 ou 10.9 com partição EFI você pode apenas copiar o Clover do pen drive para o HD. ? Formate um pen drive como FAT32 e instale o Clover nele com a opção "instalação para placas mãe UEFI". ? http://sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/ ? Você precisa ter pelo menos os drivers FSInject, OsxFatBinaryDrv e VboxHfs (ou?HFSPlus) na pasta /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI (instalados por padrão). Dependendo do BIOS pode precisar do OsxLowMemFix (Insyde H2O), EmuVariableUefi (Phoenix UEFI) ou OsxAptioFixDrv (todos os demais). ? Inicie o sistema pelo pen drive para testar o boot UEFI. ? Rode os comandos a seguir no terminal, substituindo X pelo número do HD. ? Para formatar a partição EFI como FAT32 diskutil list sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/diskXs1 Para montar a partição EFI mkdir /Volumes/EFI sudo mount_msdos /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI Crie a pasta EFI na partição EFI. ? Copie a pasta EFI/CLOVER do pen drive para a pasta EFI da partição EFI. ? Faça boot novamente pelo pen drive. No menu do Clover, entre na opção Clover Boot Options e selecione Add as UEFI boot option. A partir de agora você conseguirá iniciar sem o pen drive, pelo Clover da partição EFI, no modo UEFI. ? Recomendo a leitura deste tópico para mais informações http://www.projectos... ... topic=2428 ? Instalação do Windows ? Para criar um instalador UEFI em USB execute o Prompt de Comando como administrador e rode os comandos diskpart list disk select disk X (troque X pelo número do pen drive) clean create partition primary format fs=fat32 quick active assign exit Copie todos os arquivos da imagem (DVD) para o pen drive. ? Para o Windows 7 é necessário copiar a pasta efi\microsoft\boot para efi\boot (um nível acima), copiar o arquivo bootmgfw.efi para essa pasta e renomeá-lo para bootx64.efi ? O arquivo bootmgfw.efi está na pasta \1\Windows\Boot\EFI\ dentro do arquivo \sources\install.wim do DVD. Abra o arquivo install.wim com o?7-Zip. ? Para o Windows 8 basta fazer os passos usuais, mas não pode ser uma imagem "AIO" (all in one), x86 e x64 (com efi\boot\bootia32.efi), tem que ser uma apenas x64 (com efi\boot\bootx64.efi). ? Antes de instalar o Windows você precisa alterar o formato da partição para NTFS. Use o aplicativo gParted a partir de um live CD do Linux. ? IMPORTANTE: o instalador do Windows formata e renumera todas as partições que estão depois da selecionada como destino, pois ele cria uma partição reservada, então caso for instalar o Linux, deixe para o fim ou instale o Windows na última partição. ? Se você usa loader para ativar o Windows 7, ao invés disso pode injetar a tabela SLIC pelo Clover. ? Baixe o binário da SLIC 2.1 e o certificado ? http://forums.mydigi... ... post514521 ? Renomeie o arquivo NOME.BIN para SLIC.aml e coloque na pasta EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/WINDOWS ? Coloque o certificado em C:\ e rode no Prompt de Comando (como administrador) slmgr -ilc C:\NOME.xrm-ms Pegue uma chave http://forums.mydigi... ... Collection Rode slmgr -ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX O BCD é instalado em EFI/Microsoft na partição EFI. ? Instalação do Linux ? O único detalhe importante é instalar o GRUB legacy na própria partição e não no MBR (por exemplo, selecione /dev/sda5 e nunca /dev/sda). ? O grubx64.efi é instalado em EFI/"nome da distro" na partição EFI. ? Créditos:?Pernacabeluda (Olarila Forum)

  24. Como muitos sabem, aqueles que vieram do mundo Windows/Linux, o modo Hibernar tem ajudado muito quando queremos evitar o desgaste de nossos notebooks, alem que o sistema sempre acorda mais rapido, e ainda podemos deixar alguns aplicativos abertos para quando ligarmos o PC tudo já esteja pronto. ? E no OS X, infelizmente essa opção não existe, há uma semelhante, que é o modo Sleep (Repouso), o que ele faz? ? Em todos os Macs: O microprocessador entra no modo de baixo consumo de energiaA saída de vídeo é desativada e pode ser que o monitor conectado seja desligado ou entre em estado ociosoO disco rígido fornecido pela Apple tem a rotação reduzida; discos de terceiros talvez tenham a rotação reduzidaNos Macs portáteis: A porta Ethernet é desligada, se aplicável (consulte a nota abaixo)Os slots do cartão de expansão são desligadosO modem integrado, se houver, é desligado (consulte a nota abaixo)A placa AirPort, se houver, é desligada (consulte a nota abaixo)A porta USB responde somente à tecla liga/desliga em um teclado externo (veja abaixo)A unidade de mídia óptica, se presente, diminui a rotaçãoA entrada e a saída de áudio são desligadasA iluminação do teclado, se for um recurso do computador portátil, é desligadaUm computador usa consideravelmente menos energia quando está no modo de repouso se comparado ao modo normal. O computador continuará com a memória RAM ativa no modo de repouso, por isso tudo que estava na RAM quando o computador entrou nesse modo ainda estará lá quando o computador for despertado. Isso também significa que um computador com mais RAM usa um pouco mais de energia no modo de repouso. ? Quando o Hack está devidamente ajustado para funcionar o Sleep, com todos os patchs?necessários?já aplicados na DSDT, uma SSDT correta, ou seja quando o gerenciamento de?energia do Hack e o Clover estiver tudo correto, dai sim o Sleep vai?funcionar. Mais informações, vejam aqui no site da?Apple. ? Hibernar ? Já que sabemos como o Sleep funciona, vamos partir para o Hibernar. Como falei o Hibernar que vamos fazer agora não existe nos Macs reais, este modo realmente é uma façanha no mundo Hack. ? O que você precisa? ? Notas:? ? Neste artigo, "Mac portátil" refere-se ao Mac com monitor e teclado integrados, como o MacBook ou MacBook Pro. ? Desde a versão 2514 a função Sleep/Wake está funcionando. Nativamente o modo Hibernar funciona em Legacy, mas é?possível?também usar em UEFI. Funciona desde o OS X 10.9.1 pra cima.?(Não funciona com OS X 10.9.0) Temos noticias de que há sucesso no modo UEFI com o OS X 10.7.5, se funcionar com outra versão, vamos saber se você testar. Esse guia funcionou comigo, na versão 10.9.2 ? Vamos fazer este metodo com o Clover instalado na raiz, Legacy ? 1?- Ultima versão do Clover instalado -?Baixe aqui.? [Recomenda-se fazer isso usando a versão 2513 ou 2516] 2?- Execute isso no Terminal: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 293?- Coloque seu OS X em Sleep (Repouso), depois de 1 minuto seu sistema irá desligar por completo. 4?-?Pressione?o botão de energia (Liga/Desliga) 5?- Agora vai aparecer a tela de boot do Clover (GUI) -?Note que tem que estar escrito (Hibernated) ? 6?- Se você colocou seu sistema para iniciar em tantos segundos (ex: 5 secs, 10 secs) não faça nada, o sistema vai iniciar no modo Hibernar. 7?- Mas caso não tenha contagem regressiva, aperte ENTER na partição que você ativou o Hibernar. 8?- Agora vai aparecer esta tela de carregamento, uns 10 segundos por ai. ? ? E?Voilá!! Vai aparecer sua tela de login, coloque sua senha (se tiver) e pronto, modo Hibernar ativado. ? 10?- Se você quer iniciar no modo normal, ou se teve algum problema, vá na tela do Clover (GUI) e pressione SPACE, e escolha?"Cancel hibernate wake". ? Vamos fazer este metodo com o Clover em UEFI. ? ? Sigam os passos de 1 a 5. (Acima) Entendam amigos que para funcionar no modo UEFI, não é?fácil, requer?vários, sim varios testes. Veja um exemplo do user?droplets?do?ProjectOSX, semelhante ao meu, mas com configurações diferentes: ? Na minha maquina funcionou assim: ? Versão do Clover UEFI:?2636. Notebook Lenovo G480?- OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 Arguments usados: Slide=100 Modo Hibernar usado:hibernatemode=29 Drivers64 UEFI:?DataHubDxe-64.efi,?FSInject-64.efi,?HFSPlus.efi, OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi,?EmuVariableUefi, não foi necessario o driver OsxAptioFixDrv.efi. ? Mas talvez alguem pergunte:?Posso usar esses mesmos drivers que usou? Resposta:?Sim e Não, porque? Veja quando usamos o modo UEFI, cada um desse driver é importante para o carregamento necessário, de diversos BIOS (Gigabyte, Insyde H20 etc..). Veja quais combinações pode usar aqui:?Troubleshooting UEFI Boot by dmazar ? E esses diversos?números, no comando e arguments? Isso é você quem vai testar, depois de muitos que tentei, esses foram os que deram melhores resultados. ? E agora, como vamos saber se funcionou? ? 1 - Tem que estar como falamos acima, com a frase (hibernated) na tela de boot, e aparecer a barra de carregamento. ? 2 - Deixe marcado no seu config.plist esta opção: ? Depois que o sistema voltou, vá em EFI > CLOVER > misc, e abra o arquivo debug.log, e verifique essas linhas: 32:460 0:032 PrepareHibernation:32:580 0:119 read prefs \Library\Preferences\SystemConfiguration\com.apple.PowerManagement.plist status=Success32:597 0:017 SleepImage name from pref = \private\var\vm\sleepimage32:613 0:015 returning previously calculated offset: 32C82A00032:629 0:015 SleepImageOffset: 32C82A00032:644 0:015 02 01 0C 00 D0 41 08 0A 00 00 00 00 01 01 06 00 | .....A..........33:180 0:535 02 1F 03 12 0A 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 04 04 18 00 | ................33:730 0:550 33 00 32 00 43 00 38 00 32 00 41 00 30 00 30 00 | 3.2.C.8.2.A.0.0.34:262 0:531 30 00 00 00 7F FF 04 00 | 0.......34:668 0:405 boot-image before: PcieRoot(0x0)\Pci(0x1F,0x2)\Sata(0x0,0x0,0x0)\32C82A000Se estiver assim, parabens seu modo Hibernar está funcionando. ? Posso relatar que aqui está funcionando tudo perfeitamente. Tanto em Legacy quanto UEFI ??? ? Veja no post oficial do Clover -?Clover Instructions Se tiver problemas, veja no post oficial sobre o modo?Hibernar no ProjectOSX. ? Todos os creditos vão para:?Dmazar e Slice. ? OBS:?Muitos conseguiram hibernar usando o 29, mas se não der certo, tente usar o modo 21, ou outro. sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 21
