  1. [GUIDE] GA-Z97-D3H - GTX650 - MacOS Sierra 10.12 Intro: This is a guide written specifically for the GAZ97D3H on OSX Sierra. It should be noted that this guide will also work for El Cap. This board and build is flawless thanks to the hard work of myself and many forum members on OSX86.net. Thank you. Hardware: GA-Z97-D3H (rev 1.1, latest BIOS) Intel Core i7 4790k (O.C. to 4.6Ghz) EVGA GTX650 1GB 16GB HyperX 1833mhz 120GB PNY Optima SSD Corsair H110i GTX 1TB WD HDD, 320GB HDD MacOS Sierra 10.12 Additional Hardware: This build does not use onboard audio. It also uses a USB wifi dongle. Enabling ALC1150 audio on this board is possible but i HIGHLY recommend just buying the USB audio dongle below. SO much easier. Asus N13 USB Wifi Dongle (been using this since 10.6) Syba Virtual 7 SD-CM-UAUD71 7.1 Audio USB dongle (i have had 3 of these and work OOB) Working: App Store CPU Scaling (speedstep) Graphics Ethernet Wifi Everything Installation: Download Sierra from App store Create a USB (theres plenty of guides around the web that work easily) IMPORTANT: Don't forget to copy FakeSMC.kext to /EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.12 before installing (if '10.12' folder not there, make a new one) Before Installing: Enable the following BIOS features and SAVE the profile in case ever lost.. Disable VT-d Set XHCI to Auto mode Disable IGFX Enable XHCI and EHCI handoff Set SATA Configuration to AHCI Post Install: Install Ethernet kext Download: AppleIntelE1000e.kext.zip Place in ~System/Library/Extension Run Kextutility.app to repair permissions/cache . (not completely required but recommended) Reboot <---- Install Wifi Kext and Preference Pane for USB Dongle This kext is hard to find anymore. I don't use the drivers provided by ASUS on their website. I use another kext because Asus's was giving me proper shutdown problems. (more info: http://www.osx86.net/forums/topic/22716-mini-guide-asus-usb-n13-wifi-hackintosh-dongle/) Download RT2870 kext: RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext.zip Download DWA140 Pref Pane: DWA-140WirelessUtility.prefPane.zip (this allows us to use the wifi kext through preferences) Install RT2870.kext at ~System/Library/Extensions Install DWA140 Pre Pane at ~System/Library/Preference Panes Repair permissions/caches with kextutility.app REBOOT <--- Install Clover Bootloader to Installation Drive Download Clover Bootloader at sourcefourge.net Run through installer with these settings: (see attached images) DONT REBOOT YET Download my config file: config.plist Install config.plist at EFI/Clover Install FAKESMC.kext at EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.12 (again, make a 10.12 folder if it's missing) Reboot CHECKUP Check to see if TRIM support is enabled in System Information (it should be, if not, see below)Check 'About This Mac' to make sure everything is recognized If not enabled, see guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298507-enable-trim-on-non-apple-ssd/ Download DPCI Manager application (google) and run it. Under Status>model interface, you should see two items (one for ethernet, one for RT2870 ASUS USB) If the ethernet device is listed as 'en 0' then App store will work If the wifi is 'en 0' then app store will not work Verify App Store is working if not, navigate to MAC SSD/Library/Preferences/System Configuration Delete network interfaces.plist Reboot and App Store should work, also DPCI manager would show 'En 0' for ethernet. Generate SSDT SSDTs are required to enable CPU scaling - More info: http://www.osx86.net/forums/topic/24129-faq-4790k-haswell-how-to-install-on-a-hackintosh/ Place SSDT.aml at EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched Optional: Install Nvidia Web Drivers Download nvidia web drivers from Nvidia's site (not gpu specific) Make sure nvda_drv=1 kernel flag is selected in config.plist (use clover configurator app) - this allows the web drivers to load - if you used my config, it is already enabled Notes: *my config file attached has two strings under Kernel and Kext Patches > KextsToPatch.... one is trim enabler and the other im not totally sure what it is but keep it *If wanting to enable onboard alc1150 audio see my guide here for El Cap: http://www.osx86.net/forums/topic/23733-success-ga-z97-d3h-gtx650-el-capitan-1011-clover/ Issues: Really no issues are present with this build which is astonishing and the result of many OS X generations of fiddling around. That is not to say that the occasional KP won't happen. But overall, this is as close to stable as a hackintosh can get. I'm amazed. FAQ: DO I NEED TO INSTALL NVIDIA WEB DRIVERS? Answer is no, but they can fix long boot times (experienced this before and it fixed it) and if "About This Mac" is reading 'GTX 650 1023 MB' it will also fix that (sometimes) DO I NEED SSDT? YES. It allows the CPU to be efficient HOW TO OVERCLOCK? Overclocking must be done via the UEFI bios menu. CPU Test and Prime 95 and Intel Power Gadget are good apps to use HOW TO MONITOR TEMPS and STUFF? Monitor temps with the app HWMonitor. Download the app and install the sensors at System/Library/Extensions HOW TO ENABLE iMESSAGE? I'm an android guy so i dont use iMessage, but if for some reason it isn't working after using this guide to enable App Store, then do some research. Its quite a complex subject but can be done! DO BIOS VERSIONS MATTER? Bios should be latest revision - but i have used 3 versions with this board and all work well. Performance: Geekbench 64bit: 19589 score APPRECIATION: Thanks to all who has helped in the past. OSX86.net , forums members DMOS and Kyndder, as well as many others in the community. Thank you. I will update this thread. Hit me up for questions. I get push notifications to my phone.
  2. ? Most of us are counting the time to have in hands the final release of OS X Yosemite, which will bring significant changes in its appearance and stability. ? ? Now, the most important thing before you install and use the new OS X, is you check if your current Hack will be compatible with OS X Yosemite without major issues, and prevent some possible extress. ? Basic. Well, if you currently use OS X Mavericks, it's likely that you can use the Yosemite. But not everything is perfect. Something you should be aware of, is the fact that some components like Video, WiFi, USB kexts, or for port activation of your graphic card like HDMI, VGA or DVI. In the most of cases, we only use HDMI, which requires a patch at?AppleIntelFramebufferCapri kext,?you can use without issues Mavericks' kexts in Yosemite, but it may happen, just as happened to me, some video crashes and artifacts at your display. What you can do now is to keep a backup of the used methods and their respective patches at a Pendrive, or store it at your cloud account using DropBox, iCloud etc... Average. Always keep a backup of your working kexts and/or plugins. Backup your DSDT, SSDT and any other custom ACPI table you have. If you use Chameleon, also make sure you have a backup of the Extra folder with its contents, like org.chameleon.Boot.plist and FileNVRAM. Now, for those who uses Clover in UEFI mode, will be pretty easy. As Clover uses the EFI partition to store its files and this partition is independent from the partition where OS X is installed, if you do not re-partition your drive, you have nothing to worry about. So, be careful while installing OS X 10.10. Never change the partition layout of your HDD, for example, change it from GPT to MBR, by doing this your EFI partition will be deleted. Advanced. If you are unsure about something, or did not like Yosemite and wants to return to the Mavericks, make a full backup of OS X. Do not think that Hack things are like real Macs, and that at any issue you can use Time Machine to revert things back. Use tools that will fit your needs and save you time. An excellent tool is the CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner - 30 days of use) or SuperDuper which is free. ? ? The advantage of CCC is that you can save the bootloader, then, just restore it to an external HDD/Pendrive and install it normally. SuperDuper only backup OS X and not the bootloader. But this is not a problem, because onceOS X was restored, download and install the Bootloader does not take 3 minutes. Now, one tip that will allow you a quality support:?Never use methods from other forums, specially, those who we don’t give support, as Tonymac, Niresh and others. Understand that we don’t hate them, but think logically: If you like to use their tools, the best thing would not ask for support in their forums? And vice-versa with respect to us. Another tip that can help you a lot, always be patient. Look, we all use a new OS X, where the problems will probably be solved differently. So, don’t expect the developers or Staff members use a magic wand to fix the problems, they also need to study new ways, and when they are available, we put in the best way for you. Well this are the tips that I bring to you. And I await with much anxiety the next Keynote.
  3. Eu já tinha lido essa matéria a algum tempo, mas em inglês, e quando eu pesava em traduzir, os caras do?Br-Mac.org?já fizeram isso, e melhor do que traduzir, eles deixaram bem fácil de entender. Vejam que demais. ? Após 9 meses de torturante teste de uso contínuo, um laboratório demonstrou a durabilidade de uma amostra do mercado de SSDs – enquanto isso, o próprio mercado demonstra quais as marcas que merecem o seu investimento. ? “Como prever a durabilidade de um SSD?” ? Um aspecto me despertava a curiosidade, e até certa preocupação: a durabilidade dos SSDs. Enquanto um HD mecânico tradicional frequentemente encontra o seu final de vida dando vários sintomas, como ruídos e erros cada vez mais frequentes, com os SSDs eu não tenho experiência prévia e não sabia o que esperar. ? Mas,?graças aos testes feitos pelo Tech Report, fiquei bem mais tranquilo. ? Eles pegaram SSDs da Corsair, Intel, Kingston e Samsung, todos na faixa dos 250GB de capacidade e voltados ao consumidor final, e?colocaram eles para funcionar em um regime de tortura, com uso contínuo. ? O teste durou meses (começou em agosto do ano passado...), e todos os drives ultrapassaram o limite de falhas divulgados pelos fabricantes – todos passaram de pelo menos 700TB (700. bytes, na escala decimal adotada) de escrita antes de falhar. Como eram drives de 250GB, calcule quantas vezes eles foram completamente escritos e reescritos até chegar a esse número... ? “Ultrapassando a barreira dos petabytes” ? Além disso, 3 dos drives testados (Corsair Neutron GTX, Samsung 840 Pro e Kingston HyperX 3K) ultrapassaram a barreira de 1 PB (petabyte - equivalente a bytes na escala decimal utilizada) de escrita. Além dessas informações interessantes para orientar escolhas de compra, os testes também indicaram o que cada drive apresentou como indicativo de que estava prestes a falhar, resolvendo a minha dúvida inicial. ? “SSD não é tudo igual: é preciso conhecer as marcas” ? Além do aspecto da durabilidade, é necessário considerar mais algumas informações sobre os diversos fornecedores de SSD do mercado atual. No começo do mês, o site?StorageReview publicou uma síntese sobre as marcas de SSD que oferecem algum diferencial: Samsung, Crucial/Micron, OCZ (Toshiba), SanDisk, Intel e (em breve) Seagate. ? Segundo a análise, só essas marcas valem o investimento, porque produzem ou têm acesso a algum recurso superior aos dos outros: a SanDisk tem tanta confiança nos seus SSDs que começou a oferecer 10 anos de garantia em alguns deles, a Samsung, a OCZ e a Micron dominam recursos que permitem oferecer os menores preços por GB e manter bom desempenho nos produtos, e os processos da Intel são garantia de qualidade. ? E os outros? São a segunda categoria, cada vez mais espremida para baixo. Alguns copiam (mal e com atraso) o projeto dos líderes, outros incluem controladores de baixa qualidade em seus SSDs para conseguir reduzir o preço, etc. A lista de marcas mencionada nessas categorias de indesejáveis inclui: ADATA, Kingston, Corsair, Mushkin, PNY, WD, HSGT, e Plextor. ? “Truques sujos apontados nas práticas da Kingston e PNY” ? Notou que a Kingston figura tanto na lista dos drives que aguentaram até o limite de 1PB quanto na das marcas de segunda linha? Essa aparente contradição pode ter uma explicação simples: a?Kingston e a PNY estão sendo acusadas de um truque sujo: lançar os primeiros produtos de cada modelo de SSD com componentes de qualidade superior, aguardar os testes e reviews independentes atestando a sua qualidade e desempenho, e aí mudar profundamente a lista de componentes e processos de fabricação sem mudar a identificação do modelo, para reduzir seus custos e aproveitar a boa reputação das fornadas iniciais. ? Isso não significa que todos os produtos dessas marcas são ruins, ou que alguma ilegalidade foi cometida, mas as decisões do consumidor tendem a ficar melhores quando ele conhece as práticas dos fornecedores. ? Com esse conjunto de informações, vai ficar mais fácil escolher meus próximos SSDs! ? Fonte:?Br-Mac.org
  4. Hey guys, so..my name is Saar and I'll start from the beginning, I have 4 years old hackintosh, it's on mavericks since day one. Last week I tried to mount my Ubuntu drive into my hackintosh via "macfuse" and "osxfuse" without any luck. Anyway, I?decided?to uninstall those addon package from my filesystem via system settings, then the "Disk Utility"?couldn't power up, so.. I restarted my hackintosh, but my chameleon bootloader couldn't show up, now i'm running my Ubuntu with no way booting up my hackintosh.. ? I don't really know anyone with a real mac or hack in my neighborhood or any of my friends..? ? That's pretty shame I have no backup USB or something like boot disk only for that kind of trouble. What would you suggest my to do? Any help will be accepted by me, Thanks in advance.? ? Intel Core2Duo E6320 1.86GHZ (Historic) 4 GB RAM Intel DP965LT mobo Readon 6800HD?

  5. Hey guys, I've been trying pretty desperately the last couple of days to dual boot my Asus K52F with Win7 and OSX. So far I've failed with Lion and Snow Leopard, so I figured I'd skip a level down and attempt Tiger. I obtained an ISO version of 10.4.6, burned it to a dvd and using the most current version of iB{censored}, I Booted the new dvd (labeled Mac OSX x86 Install in iB{censored}). It attempts for a few seconds, but than loads the message "You must restart your computer... blahblahblah". Behind it, the error log reads: Panic (cpu 0 caller 0x563ebd) unable to find driver for this platform:\"ACPI\".\n"@ /SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1504.15.2/iokit/kernel/ioplatformexpert.cpp:1387 Kernel Version: Darwin Kernel 10.8.0 My computer's stats is asfollows: Intel Pentium CPU P6100 @ 2.0 GHz 8 GB RAM current OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Motherboard: ASUSTek K52F 1.0 Bridge: Havendale/Clarkdale. SouthBridge: Intel HM55 CPU socket: socket 989 rPGA Am I missing something or is this a complete lost cause. Any help at all is appreciated. Help!? Installing Tiger10.4.6 on Asus K52F. Boot Error
