  1. [FAQ] Hackintosh Haswell CPU Installation and Overclocking Introduction: This is a small but valuable guide to those who are seeking to install a Haswell CPU on a hackintosh. The primary objective is to answer any questions that some may have. I could not find many answers for these questions. At least, a clear informative source. This very much applies to others intel chips. The process is all the same. For me, it was a 4790k. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Can I Install a Haswell CPU without Reinstalling OSX? Yes. Very likely. I did not have to reinstall making the jump from an i5 4430 to the i7 4790k. What Do I Need to Do to Get My CPU Working Correctly? You've heard the term "speed step" or "power management" or even "Frequency Scaling". This is the power saving feature that intel has designed to decrease the frequency (thus, power consumption) when the CPU is not under load. This is fixed by generating an SSDT file (see below). If you're a novice to the subject, you may have also been confused by the terms C States and P States. Simply, the more states you have, the more power consumption levels you have. With only 1 P and C state, your CPU may only scale down to one low frequency, instead of multiple, which is how it was designed. Anyway, i'm not an expert on C/P states. As long as my frequency scales, i'm happy with that. There is a way to check P and C states, with a kext called AppleIntelInfo.kext which (if im not mistaken) was developed by PikerAlpha. Secondly, you should have the best SMBIOS profile loaded in Clover Config. For the 4790k, iMac 14,2 is the most compatible with my GTX650. iMac 15,2 gave a black screen at boot. To determine the best profile, a good rule of thumb is to select a system that uses the same CPU socket as you have, and even the same processor (if possible.) Lastly, DO NOT use NullCPUPowermanagement.kext with an SSDT! In fact, NullCPUPowermanagement.kext is an abomination to a true hackintosh. It should not be required. How to Generate SSDT? The process is easy. PikerAlpha generated a program that creates this via terminal. It is called ssdtPRgen.sh. SSDTs are then place in EFI>CLOVER>ACPI>PATCHED. The shell script can be downloaded with a quick google search. Piker's GitHUB will provide a download. The script is ran inside terminal. The ssdt file(s) export to a location designated inside the terminal window. Just pay attention to the script output. Note*****: It is best to generate an SSDT AFTER you have overclocked the system. <-- How to Confirm if CPU Power Management is Working? Download the latest Intel Power Gadget from their website and simply run it. Once it is open, view your CPU frequency chart. If it is moving up and down, you're good. If it is staying constant, it is not working and the SSDT is either not being loaded or is more likely generated incorrectly. SSDT requires no special kernel flags. But it must be installed in the right location of the EFI partition. OVERCLOCKING a Hackintosh - HOW?? There is absolutely no information on how to do this. Mostly because its the exact same process as a PC. However, theres some things you should know. About This Mac will never show your overclocked speed. Thats pretty understandable. Overclocking must be done from the BIOS on Hackintoshes Best stress test softwares for OSX are : CPUTest, Prime 95, Cinebench, and Geekbench. Monitor temps with Intel Power Gadget tool. Monitor voltages with ONLY HWMonitor. HW Monitor is accurate if fakeSMC is installed. But I do think there are some inaccuracies with the voltages. Other than that, there really is no way on OSX to see voltages and important CPU data. Let me know if this has helped. Mods, correct my info if it is incorrect. Appreciation: PikerAlpha, RampageDev, OSX86.net, InsanelyMac, others.
  2. Requirements and Support List: Intel Core2Duo and newer 64bit CPU, minimum 1GB RAM, minimum 15GB free space on target partition, compatible VGA card. Bootable USB with iAtkos ML2 installation http://www.iatkos.me/forum/viewtopic.php?f=77&t=23105 Before installation go to bios and reset your settings by default - BIOS settings: - Set your BIOS to its default settings. - Execute Disable bit: Enabled - XD (if exists): Enabled - Limit CPUID Max: Disabled - Set all cores of the CPU active/enabled. - Virtualization (if exists): Enabled or Disabled, try it. - Hyper-threading: Enabled or Disabled, try it. - HPET (High Precision Event Timer/PCH): Enabled - SATA Mode: AHCI - Set all the Overclock/Performance/Turbo etc. values to Auto. - Set the UEFI mode settings (if exists) to compatible mode Change only the settings you have. Boot your mountain lion installation with these boot flags -v PciRoot=0 USBBusFix=Yes White, black or blue screen freezes mostly mean that your graphics card(s) isn't functioning correctly at that time. - You can also try these commands (without quotes) for freezes: You can try combinations by adding a space between them, i.e. "-x -v cpus=1". "-f" "cpus=1" "npci=0x3000" Also there might be some commands that you need to enter just because of your faulty bootloader options selections. "UseKernelCache=No" "GraphicsEnabler=No" When you're successfully boot installation go to disk utilities and partition your hard drive Select your hard drive after you are done with partition and click install Is first installation failed you need to reinstall again ,second installation will be successful Download this zip file Extra.zip Copy DSDT,SSDT and Smbios in Extra folder install voodooHDA with kext wizard install lan RTL 8103LE Run kext utility and wait for it to finish edit org.chameleon.boot.plist in your extra folder and it should be looking like this ? Sound Enabler? http://www.hackintoshosx.com/file/3907-/ Thats it ,you only need to enable your graphics card ?
  3. Ok, so here are the specs: ? Mobile Intel® PCHM 8 series chipset, HM87 3200*1800 resolution (!!!) i7 4702HQ 8GB RAM Nvidia 870M GTX 512gb SSD Synaptics touchpad ? I'm new here, can you guys tell me: ? 1) Is it possible to Hackintosh this laptop ? IF NOT: Why? ? IF YES: How? I've never done things like that, so tutorial will be very much appreciated. I'v read about Hackintosh and haven't understood what Clover is etc. So please help)
  4. Informações deste Notebook: ? i5-3210M | 4GB 1600MHz | HD 4000 | Audio - Cx20590 | Wifi - AR9285 | Network - Atheros AR8162 -?BIOS:?Insyde H2O - 3.7 ? ? ? Clover UEFI ? Esse tutorial é para instalar o Clover em UEFI no Lenovo G480. ? 1 - Para instalar os sistemas operacionais no modo UEFI, seu BIOS precisa ter a opção?UEFI Boot?e ela precisa ser ativada. ? ? 2 - Observe que quando essa opção está ativa, aparece?UEFI/EFI?antes do nome do drive. ? ? ? Formate um pen drive como?FAT32?e instale o Clover nele. ? Para esse Notebook você precisa ter pelo menos esse drivers na pasta /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. ? ? Depois de instalar, crie a pasta EFI/BOOT no pen drive e copie o arquivo EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi para EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi ? Inicie o sistema pelo pen drive para testar o boot UEFI. ? Se deu tudo certo, e o sistema está redondo com tudo funcionando, é hora de instalar o Clover em EFI. ? Para isso a EFI tem que ser formatada em FAT32. O "x” é o numero da sua partição EFI. ? Vamos usar o Terminal: diskutil listsudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/diskXs1Agora vamos montar a EFI: mkdir /Volumes/EFIsudo mount_msdos /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFICrie a pasta EFI na partição EFI. ? Copie a pasta EFI/Clover do pen drive para a pasta EFI da partição EFI. ? Reinicie com o pen drive inserido. Use o Pen como boot, agora no menu do Clover entre na opção?Clover Boot Options?e selecione?Add as UEFI boot option. Essa opção só ira aparecer se o modo UEFI estiver ativado A partir de agora você conseguirá iniciar sem o pen drive, pelo Clover da partição EFI, no modo UEFI. ? Um adendo, quando estiver com tudo preparado, exclua os outros drivers das pastas drivers32UEFI, drivers32 e drivers64.

  7. Olá pessoal, Vou contar a minha história, estou precisando urgentemente fazer um hackintosh. Motivo: estou com um projeto para desenvolver um aplicativo para iphone só que infelizmente não tenho verba para comprar um mac mini nem um iMac, talvez depois do desse projeto quem sabe, em fim, necessito muito fazer um hackintosh, tenho o conhecimento básico, já tentei algumas vezes sozinho mas não tive sucesso no processo de configuração dos kexts, DSDT e afins, tenho até um CD retail do Mac OS X Snow Leopard que comprei para tentar instalar aqui, minha máquina é: Placa mãe: p5g41t-m lx2/br processador: core 2 quad q8400 memória: 4 gb de ram dd3 1333 placa de video: hd 5750 xfx disco rigido: 250 gb sata 2 Com esses configurações eu consigo roda o snow leopard ou lion com áudio, aceleração gráfica e rede? Se sim, existe algum tutorial para essa configuração? Desde de já, valeu galera. Fico ansioso para começar a brincar com Mac OS X. obs: caso eu tenha colocado esse post em lugar errado ou criado um post duplicado me desculpem sou novo nesse meio, =) flw.
