  1. 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

  4. 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... AFFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amiga_Fast_File_System BFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Be_File_System BtrFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Btrfs ExFAT>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exfat EXT>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_system EXT2>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_system EXT3>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_system EXT4>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_system HFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hierarchical_File_System HFS+>?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HFS%2B ISO9660>?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iso9660 JFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journaling_file_system NilFS2>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NILFS NTFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ntfs ReiserFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reiserfs SFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_File_System UDF>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Disk_Format UFS2>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UFS2 XFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xfs ZFS>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zfs You can get all available (U)EFI Drivers from here >?http://efi.akeo.ie/downloads/efifs-0.6.1/x64/ PS: Unfortunately, there are precompiled binaries only for 64bit firmwares... 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!
  5. I am building a workhorse Hackintosh and need advice on a motherboard (I don't game, just run dual DVI monitors, so ignore the lame GPU!). So far I have: CPU: i7-4790k GPU: EVGA GeForce GT 740 Superclocked Single Slot 2GB DDR3 Graphics Cards 02G-P4-2742-KR Case: Thermaltake Commander G41/Black/Win/SECC Black SPCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (CA-1B4-00M1WN-00) PSU: EVGA 120-G1-0650-XR 650W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Power Supply RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM COOLER: Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes The last 2 pieces I need are a SSD and MoBo.?? For the SSD: Samsung EVO 256GB. For the MoBo it can only be ATX or mATX, I don't think the case will hold an ITX. It must have an Intel NIC, I don't want the Realtek NIC. I've built on a couple of Gigabyte MoBos, so I want to try ASUS this time. I do use an apple bluetooth keyboard, mouse, and headphones so bluetooth is nice, but I could always just get a usb dongle for that. I also don't need wifi. Here is what I have narrowed it down to, suggestions?

  6. Hello there. I have made a few Hacks in the past but just i5:s or Core 2 Quads. They all work fine but now it´s time for a real build. My thoughts are around a DUAL XEON CPU rig, with a standard GPU (radeon hd 5770). Now to the motherboard, which is a problem. Most cases supports E-ATX, like the Fractal Design R4 or Corsair 330R and others like that, but NONE of these specify the measurements of the actual motherboard space, the space from the back to the hdd:s. They just specify the whole thing or the space for the Graphics Cards, which is very unreliable information. I´ve seen builds form the HP z800 and z600 and it seems to work okay except for the form factor, which seems to be a problem. Anyone got a z800 Motherboard in a normal PC chassis ?? Please let me know. If there is no way to use the z800:s motherboard, which looks like the smallest one, apart from the z600, is there another motherboard that will fit the cases above? ?Maybe its easier to go with a Supermicro motherboard, or an intel 5520 version. The problem is still if they will fit in a Fractal Design R4 case or something like that. ? Hope someone has tried this already and can set me straight! ? Thanks Upfront. ? Regards, Andrew ? ?

    1.Working DSDT For ASUS M5A88-M Motherboard. 2.Including HD 7850 Graphics Patch [QE/CI Acceleration DSDT Injected]...!! 3.True Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound Support via HDMI !!
  8. Hello Everyone, ? This Full List of Hardwares e.g Motherboard ,Audio,Ethernet,Wifi,Graphics which are natively Supported in Mac OS X or needs ?patches to activate them through kexts,DSDT,Kernel Flags etc. ? This Forum contains lots of similar questions e.g. These are My System Specs are supported ??? so there is an answer for those Question .this my little effort to Save your time in creating post/thread waiting for reply/answer bcoz we can't make up for you waiting ,time means alot . plz read before buying/building/creating hackintosh . ? ? Note : It does not mean that the hardware not listed here does not work with OSX, this table means that the hardware listed here works out of box with OSX or it is easier to make it work with OSX. ? When you buy new, you should always consider components in-order from top->bottom as the components from top of the table would be the one added recently and would be compatible with the latest version of OSX. Also, make sure the components you select here according to your budget are compatible with each other, that is the motherboard you select should be compatible with the processor you select. One way to make sure of it is to see the socket of the processor eg : 1150,1155,1156 ?and your ?motherboard should have the same socket support.? ? Bios: As per we know UEFI Bios Motherboard and laptops their Bios are fully comaptible with OSX but Some of Vendor's Like Asus,MSI,Asrock have Locked Bios for their own so that are not supported then you need to patch you Bios..in the Latest Intel Chipsets 8 Series Board's Bios of Most of Vendor's are not locked means you don't need to do anything? ? ? ? Processor (CPU): - 1st, 2nd (SandyBridge), 3rd (IvyBridge) and 4th generation (Haswell) Intel Core i series processors are supported including 2011 socket SandyBridge-E/EN/EP and IvyBridge-E/EN/EP Core i7/Xeon cpus. Simply, Core2Duo / Core2Quad / 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Generation Core i3, i5, i7 / Xeon 3xxx, 5xxx, 6xxx, 7xxx, E3, E5, E7 processors are supported. ? - AMD processors are not supported but by using Patched Kernel ?AMD is fully supported . ? Motherboard: - Please read with attention and do not continuously ask questions about your motherboard compatibility. ? - Most of UEFI/Non-UEFI Intel chipset motherboards are supported. Simply, chipsets from 945G to C6xx are supported. Common chips are 945, 965, 975, P35, P43, P45, P55, G31, G41, G43, X58, H61, HM65, HM67, H67, P67, Z68, Z77, X79, Z87 and C6xx. South bridges from ICH5 to newest Intel 8 Series are supported. (ICH5-6-7-8-9-10, 5-6-7-8 Series) ? - Besides the main chipset model, a motherboard has many components. Every component itself may or may not be compatible and even may be problematic for Mac OS X. Also, BIOS of the motherboard may be problematic for this OS. Because of these reasons, some motherboards will not be able to run this OS easily, they might need hard effortsin order you to make it work and some of them will never run it. Search google and try it on your computer. If a hardware is compatible with OSX, then it is compatible with Mavericks, simple as this 8-) Most of Gigabyte Motherboards are recommeded for Hackintosh bcoz they have full hackintosh support . ? Graphics (GPU): - Intel Graphics HD 3000, HD 4000 and HD 5000 are supported, the rest are not. HD 5000 driver supports HD 4200, HD 4400, HD 4600, HD 5000, HD 5100 and HD 5200. ? - nvidia vga cards from G80 core to the newest Tesla series are supported on 10.9.1. This does not mean that all of them will work of course but most of them will work with Mavericks. Simply, nvidia 8xxx / 9xxx / 1xx / 2xx / 3xx / 4xx / 5xx / 6xx / 7xx cards are supported. ? - About ATI, Mac OS X 10.9 and Clover bootloader gives us more hope and less pain about ATI support. Simply, ATI 7xxx/6xxx/5xxx/4xxx chipsets are supported but of course still more pain and less success comparing with nvidia. Mavericks has some options for ATI's including device_id injection and framebuffer override packages to make more of the ATI cards work with less pain. Still, many of the users may have to take some additional steps to use their ATI cards after installation. ? -Connectors/Ports for Connecting Monitor - They are also Main Part of OSX means shows how you have connected your Monitor with Cpu ,so following are Connectors/ports for Hackintosh:: 1.Dvi (Recommended) 2.HDMI ?(Hdmi is not fully functional in Hackintosh you need to Patch APPLEHDA for Audio working ) ? 3.Thunderbolt port ?(if your Motherboard have Thunderboalt Support/port) 4.Display Port (Optional i have not tested it yet) 5.VGA (As we know Mac OSX Doesn't Supports VGA for using VGA you need to patch your kexts but it's not recommeded in Mavericks by me ,,so another option is Descrete Graphic Card which allows you to use you graphics with full qe/ci). ? ? Network Devices: - Common wired and wireless network devices that are auto-detected by N{censored} Distro's. There may still be problematic chips but most of them will work OOB with Mavericks . - Intel Gigabit and Intel Pro/100 - Realtek RTL8111, 8168, 8101E, 8102E, 8131E, 8169, 8110SC, 8169SC - Atheros AR8121, 8113, 8114, 8131, 8151, 8161, 8171, 8132,8151, 8152, 8162, 8172 - Broadcom BCM5722, 5752, 5754, 5754M, 5755, 5755M, 5761, 5761e, 57780, 57781, 57785, 5784M, 5787, 5787M, 5906, 5906M, 57788, 5784M - Marvell 88E8035, 88E8036, 88E8038, 88E8039, 88E8056, 88E8001 Wireless: Some chips (ie. Atheros ar5008, Broadcom BCM4311) are natively supported by OS X. So, this is not the complete wifi support list of OS X. - Atheros AR9285, 9287, 9227 - Broadcom BCM4312, 4321, 4322, 43224, 43225, 43227, 43228, 4352 (Some of these broadcom chips need rebranding in order to work on OS X.) here is link which have full list of compatible wifi chipsets? RAM: - ?Minimum amount of RAM is 2GB,But i Recommended to use minimum 4GB. ? Sound: - Sound device is auto-detected by VoodooHDA and nearly all of the onboard sound devices are supported.if you have issue with audio like whistling ,sluttering etc. then your own onboard or externel card Kexts? Realtek ALC8XX is fully compatible with Mavericks . ? Disk Space: - Recommended minimum amount of disk space for installation is 30GB. (Software RAID installation is supported and all operations are automated for all of the bootloaders.) ? KeyBoard/Mouse: you are able to use old keyboard/mouse means PS/2 keyboards mouse but you will have some trouble with it ,so my recommendation is to USB or Wireless Keyboard/Mouse. ? Notice ::This guides doesn't means your hardware is fully supported it's compatible and able to work with ,if it's work OOB then you don't need to do anything otherwise you need to put some efforts? ? ? ? original post written by Deepak
  9. Hello, I have installed osx ML on my own build system.

  10. Hi All, I've scrounged a ton of web pages so far but can't seem to settle on a MB that meets my requirerments. All I want this machine for is an Appliance to run ONE app: Audirvana+ All the app will do is take PCM(wav or flac) or DSD audio (via flac or SACD iso) files and output the stream to S/PDIF, which physically is either toslink or Coax. It does not matter which so long as it supports 24bit @ 192khz. I was really bummed to find out that none of the MacBook or MacMini support faster than 96khz and I have a lot of content at 176.4 and 192 Khz. Some might say can you hear the difference? I think so, but the point is that you want your stream to the outboard DAC to MATCH so it does no conversion. Therein the sound quality problem lies. So, if anyone can recommend a MB I'd really appreciate it. It does not need to be expensive (the cheaper the better), it appears that the Realtek ALC898 chip does the requisite S/PDIF, it needs to run Mtn Lion (the app requires at least Lion - which sucked), 4GB ram is enough, although 8GB preferred, integrated DVI (if possible - graphics performance not needed) and a reasonably easy install - fewest tweaks and Kext. Thanks!

  12. Hello Everyone, I just wanted to know what are the necessary steps in for me to install OSX Snow Leopard on my Desktop PC. This is my first attempt at making a Hackingtosh. As far as specs go, this is my current hardware: Motherboard: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 Memory: x1 CORSAIR 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 x2 Patriot Gamer 2 Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PGD38G1600ELK Video Card: HIS H467QR1GH Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Power Supply: Rosewill RV2-700 700W ATX12V v2.3 I bought these components at NewEgg back in 2010. Anyways I wanna know if these components are compatible in making a Hackingtosh PC. I will be using a separate 80gb 2.5 inch HDD from Seagate to install the OS, I don't feel like partitioning 2 OSs in the same Hardrive. I appreciate any help at all. Just guide in the right direction. Thank You.
