Hackintosh has issues booting from the formatted drive

So I’m using a USB drive as the installation media. I’m actually installing on a 64GB USB drive as well (that may be a problem). When I try and install, the installation process goes fine until the computer has to restart to complete the installation process. I then try and boot off the now-installed 64GB, but the system just freezes midway through bootup (progress bar at 75% or so) with a couple multicolored pixels in the top left of the screen.

Any advice? I’m running this with the “cpus=1” bootflag in addition to the defaults. -v for some reason doesn’t seem to work.

Specs: Intel 2600K & Intel motherboard (of course) RX 580 8GB (heard that this may cause issues during boot)

Can't upgrade to High Sierra from Sierra

I'm not sure what steps I'm missing. Just upgrading directly by downloading High Sierra then following the installation process. It creates a new partition on Clover, but when I run it to completion (maybe 30 minutes or so for the black screen with Apple logo and progress bar to complete), I just see a grey screen and no activity after that. Did this twice already and rebooted manually by pressing reset button and selecting the Mac OS partition instead of Mac OS Installation on Clover which is still Sierra and seems to not have changed.

I'm just using inject NVIDIA drivers with my GTX 560 so I don't require any special drivers, but to be safe I put Apple ALC, Lilu, USBInject and XHCI-200-series in Clover/kexts/other. I also put in the APFS and HPFSPlus EFIs in drivers64UEFI.

Any advice??

Audio issues - Sound on headphones but not on built-in speakers

Hi all,

I've been struggling with audio for some time now, and I'm close to get it sorted out.

I have an HP Omen 15ax216nf : Z270 Mobo i5 7300HQ Intel HD 630 / GTX 1050

I've tried 3 methods for audio :

  • The patched Apple HDA + HDA enabler method : patched with Mirone's Apple HDA patcher.
  • The original AppleHDA + dummy method : with proper DSDT.
  • AppleALC.kext : loaded in EFI with Clover, it's what I currently use.

Since i have a 200 series mobo, I used RehabMan's FakePCIID kexts in all 3 methods. I also use a HDAS to HDEF patch in my config.plist.

All methods resulted with : audio devices being detected, device switch working (built-in speakers change to headphones when I plug headphones), but I only have sound with the headphones, built-in speakers won't work.

I have tried VoodooHDA and it works well. I have sound on speakers and on headphones. I'd keep it, but it doesn't detect device switch, which means I have to manually change device everytime I plug earphones.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

HELP! It won't boot, already tried 4 methods!

So I built the following configuration:


i5 7600

GTX 1060

I'm using a Kingston 16GB DT50 USB 3.1 flash drive and I'm starting to think the flashdrive itself is the problem.

First I followed tonymacx86 guide to Install Sierra. That's where I found my first hurdle, I couldn't get the 'Install macOS Sierra' app since it was removed from the App Store. I got it by other means.

I then used Unibeast and made a bootable PEN.

After configuring my mobo in the bios (I couldn't find a few options, but I did the following:

  • Disabled VT-d

  • OS Type to 'Other OS'

  • IO Serial Port 'Disabled' (I also get the option Paralell Port and disabled that too)

  • XHCI Handoff Enabled

Here are the screens of my motherboard's bios: If you see any option I should change, please tell me because I'm not sure I have everything correctly set up.

After that I inserted the flash drive and booted.

The clover bootloader showed up, I chose Boot macOS from flashdrive. A white Apple logo shows up but it just stays there, nothing happens. I then try to boot in verbose mode and it just gets stuck on this screen.

I then try the tonymacx86 guide for El Capitan, did the same thing, but now every time I tried to boot, the computer just restarted itself and this time I did download the installer from the App Store since that one is still there.

So, back to reformatting the flash drive. Now, when I try to Erase it in Disk Utility, it gives me an error at the first try, but magically works at the second. It also gets extremely hot every time it is connected to a PC. Something's up with this drive.

So, I then promptly give up on El Capitan since my GPU is a GTX 1060 and that is natively supported in Sierra.

I follow this method:

It's a method to install 'Niresh Sierra' which is strongly recommended by the community and often labeled as hassle-free.

I download the 'Restore Sierra.pkg' package but I can't install it. My MacBook gives me an error message saying it couldn't open it '-1'. So then I install TransMac on my windows PC and flash the USB Drive with that.

OK, flashing is done, I connect the drive to my Hackintosh build, boot it up, and there's the Niresh bootloader. I select boot and bunch of text starts running through the screen but then it becomes arctifacted with a white Stop sign in the center and stops printing lines to the display saying 'can't access root' or something. I completely forgot to take a picture.

So yes, that also failed.

I then followed this guide to install a vanilla version of Sierra using MacPwn:

When MacPwn finished I removed the flash drive from my MacBook and tried to boot with it. The PC just won't boot this time, it just sits there with the message 'Insert boot device'. I checked the Bios and it does the detect the flash drive, it just doesn't boot from it.

So now I don't know what to. I'll buy a new flashdrive tomorrow and try it out on that.

Best wifi card/ USB adapter to suit my needs?

I've got a Sierra Hackintosh running and I need some wifi so I was thinking between BCM94352ZAE but that means it won't work on my laptop (Inspiron 13 7359). As it only supports XPS 9343 I think. It's also very pricey. And Dell is out of stock I would like to use both my windows for games and Sierra for work. Another option is a Dlink USB wifi but that does not have Bluetooth and I hear PCIE is far superior to USB wifi. So what do you think I should do. USB or Card. USB is a little cheaper then the wifi card if I buy the card from dell.if there was a way for the card to work on my computer then I would buy in a heartbeat but :/

High Sierra Black Loading Screen

Hey guys, currently have a working hackintosh on Sierra and am trying to upgrade to High Sierra. I used multibeast before but this time I want to do a vanilla install. I created the clover boot drive and placed the apfs.efi file (i think thats what its called) into the correct directory with the corresponding kext.

The problem is when I'm booting from the usb into the installer, the apple logo shows with the loading bar stuck half way. I've tried several boot arguments with nv_disable=1, -v, PCIRootUID=1 with no luck. I dont know why but the -x crashes and reboots my system. The specs are below:

GA-Z97X-UD5H i5 4690k 16 GB DDR3 RAM EVGA GTX 970 FTW

Does anyone have an idea? Thank you.

Fenvi FV8801

Hi hackintochers,

Recently purchased a Fenvi FV8801 based on a previous recommendation. Able to connect to my wireless network and pair Bluetooth devices on my Windows 10 partition right out of the box - like magic.

macOS is only able to detect and pair Bluetooth devices - again, right out of the box. Status bar states Wi-Fi hardware is not detected. When in System Preferences, I now have the 'option' to Turn Wi-Fi On (previously grayed out), but nothing happens when doing so.

Anyone experience this in the past? Hoping it's a simple kext file I might of missed during installation.

Currently running macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on a Kabylake build:

Need help with fresh High Sierra install - z97p-d3 and gtx 1070

Hi guys, I need help doing a fresh install of High Sierra. I created the usb stick with my macbook and followed the instructions on tonymac.

If I try to install it from USB it gets stuck at around 90%. Do I have to disable my 1070 in BIOS and go with the onboard HDMI?

I had El Capitan on my machine before with a GTX 770, but switched it to a ZOTAC 1070 AMP Extreme. Couldn't upgrade directly from El Capitan and messed a lot of things up I guess. Since its not starting anymore.

AMD HD6870 - Sierra support help

Hello everyone,

I recently installed Sierra afte 5h of hell, but, when everything starts working fine, there's an issue. It's that OSx won't detected and use my GPU. I see eveything on my screen, but, 1st animations are laggy 2. got screen tearing on login screen and randomly using Safari 3. max resolution is 1280x720 and my display is 1680x1050 4. gpu detected as a 4MB gpu

So, I saw the thread that shows support for AMD cards, and my card is listed as supported, and, somewhere I read, my GPU is OOB, and the thread says I need to do this:

"In Clover, you have to set: - FakeID / ATI = full ID - Inject / ATI = true - FBName = framebuffer name - FixDisplay = true"

Seems easy but the thing is, I'm totally new to Hackintosh stuff. So, I find Clover very very hard. I installed Sierra using it, installed the Clover app for it. So, what and how do I need to do in Clover, I couldn't find any useful Clover tutorials out there, thanks in advance.

RX480 Crashes FCPX in High Sierra

I recently upgraded my Z97N to High Sierra. I read it has native support for the rx480. I had to remove my custom clover config to get High Sierra working. I came across a strange issues. When I have both screen plugged into the 480 it shows up as my primary graphics card and FCPX crashes upon opening. When I reboot and put one hdmi into the motherboard the intel graphics show up as the primary card and it works fine. Do I need to wait for a FCPX update or am I missing an easy fix?

Alienware asm100-1580

Hello wonderful people!

I have the opportunity to purchase an Alienware asm100-1580 that has been converted to windows 10 for a steal. I was wondering if there was any way to convert it into a hackintosh. From what I have searched on here and tonymacx86 there hasn't been anything mentioned about this steam machine. It has a core i3-4130T in it (which I have seen converted to a hackintosh) as well as an 860m. I am assuming I will have to convert the wifi card to get it to work wirelessly (not sure if it's compatible or not) but that's an easy fix. I am assuming it is a custom motherboard from Dell so I don't know if that hurts or helps. So this leads to my question:

Is it hackintosh compatible? If so does anyone have any helpful links? If not, what's stopping it?

The original VMware Unlocker is available here: http://www.insanelym...e/339-unlocker/

The changes that were made to the code to enable this patcher to work are available here: Other than this change, only the install scripts and the patcher exe for Windows was modified.

Anybody else also experiencing frequent iTunes crashes after upgrading to High Sierra?

I also posted yesterday but I didn't get any response, so I hope that this isn't spamming (Apologies if it is). I recently upgraded to High Sierra and since then iTunes has been giving up on me quite a lot. Here are crash reports on three different occasions. The main problem seems to be iTunes trying to access unallocated memory resource, triggering a SIGSEGV. I own a HDD and stuck with HFS+ for the installation if that's relevant. Crash Report 1, Crash Report 2 and Crash Report 3.

[New Build] BIOS only appears with no GPU installed...

Not only am I a complete noob at this (i've done as much reading as i can) but i am attempting to build a high sierra machine from scratch (i started all this days after losing Sierra from the app store)

My question is this: is it normal that i can only boot using integrated graphics for now? If i proceed with OS X install etc, I'll presumably get the chance later on to add the new NVIDIA web drivers and add the card back in at that point? At the moment if i boot with the GPU installed, i get no BIOS screen.

Appreciate any help/tips. Thanks all.

EDIT: Just to expand on what happens when the GPU is actually installed in the PCI/16 slot, both it's fans spin up. It's LEDs light up. After a few seconds the fans spin down. i have both an HDMI from the mobo and a DVI from the GPU going into the same display so i can test. i'm 99% positive i've attached the GPU to the mobo and the cables form the PSU to it correctly (the headers seem foolproof, and fit fine)
