Row Of Plus Signs Dell Vostro260/Inspiron620 High Sierra

Using clover and vanilla High Sierra. Specs are i5-2400 4GB DDR3 Sandisk 120GB SSD and a Zotac GT1030.

Clover boots up just fine and then as soon as I press the boot drive it goes to a blank screen with just a dash and maybe a minute later a row of plus signs.

Have tried -Fake CPUID - safe mode - -F - dart=0 - SMBIOS iMac 12,2 And they all have the exactly the same problem.

Anyway to Remove Loading Bar During Boot Up? High Sierra 10.13.1

I've got everything working now, and it runs like a dream. I guess it's just a preference, but I like that classic Macintosh sound when I boot up. Right now though, it's just the Apple Logo with a progress bar, as if it were updating something. How do I get rid of it?

Upgrading to SSD Help

Hi guys,

I have a fully working Hackintosh running on a spare mechanical drive I removed from my old MacBook Pro a while back and was wondering how painful it would be to swap out the drive to an SSD but have this old drive cloned to the new one.

What would I need to do to achieve this? Also, if this is possible, would the process basically be a clone of this drive, then write it to the new SSD, boot and be back to where I am now?

Or do/should I start over again with a clean install.

Thanks for you help!

HDD not showing up in FULLY INSTALLED High Sierra System

I've successfully installed High Sierra 10.13.1, and I have already fixed many of the issues (audio works, GPU is running, boots without USB, etc.). However, as I was checking on things, I realized that my hard drive was not being detected, although my SSD is being shown. The SSD is the only storage showing up on my system.

Note: The HDD shows up in the bios, and it also showed up in Disk Utility during the install.


MB: Gigabyte GA-Z270X Ultra Gaming

CPU: i7-7700K

GPU: GTX 1070

Storage: Samsung 850 EVO SSD & Seagate Barracuda 1TB

Any help appreciated!

Asus Z97E seems to be compatible.

I'm a bit puzzled that my Motherboard Asus Z97E was not listed among the compatible motherboards. Upgraded from EC to High Sierra without a hitch, tho I didn't expect it to work as it was no longer listed as compatible. I did have to use an external USB sound dongle but that was the case even when it was listed as compatible.

Any ideas why? Just curious or where to list it as compatible with a note on the sound?

Average price for a good Hackintosh?

Let’s say for video editing (no 4k) or CAD without many lagging/delays.

Can you get a Mac system on VMware (EXSi 6) that isn't run on Apple hardware?

I am looking to possibly run some tests on Mac systems and being able to have them run virtually would be very useful. I am looking for all of my options. Obviously running ESXi on Apple hardware is the supported option.

I have also found an unlocker for ESXi that seems to edit the Hypervisor and removes or changes the check that VMware does to confirm that the Mac OS is running on Apple hardware. I am hesitant to do this on a system that is running other systems we are using and is currently fully supported by VMware.

So my question is if there are any other options that don't require changes to the VMware that are not supported but are on our existing ESXi infrastructure or installed on Apple hardware?

Thank you very much for any help you can provide.

Glitches and screen flickering after install


I installed High Sierra on my PC, the installation went fine but the screen is flickering after the installation. A picture will describe the situation better than with words:

My specs:

GPU: Nvidia GTS 450

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro

Processor: i3 2120

Memory: 16GB DDR3

I installed the Nvidia Web drivers for my GPU (

My bootloader is Clover and I enabled the Nvidia Web Drivers. I also added the NvidiaGraphicsFixup and Lilu kexts

I installed Yosemite some years ago on the same build

Any help would be appreciated!

Need help with a hackintosh build

Background: Last time I've built a Hackintosh (or even a PC) was in 2009. I've started using a Macbook for work since then and I haven't tinkered with anything hardware-related again for 8/9 years.

Today: I need a Hackintosh built and I was looking at the hardware listings (tonymac et al) and I'm really confused with all the new stuff out there.

Apparently, there are hard drives that bolt into the PCIe slot now? And what about those dual slot video cards? Last time I remember, it was the rise of (dual) SLI/crossfire something (2x video cards connected together), now one video card occupies two slots?

Anyway, here's my initial parts list. Let me know if any of these may introduce problem with the hackintosh build.

  • Intel Core i7-7700K (Is this the best bang-for-buck processor? I won't be overclocking anything soon, but should I buy a K processor anyway?)

  • EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SSC GAMING 6GB (I haven't gamed in a while and I don't plan on any heavy gaming again soon, but do I need a beefy video card to drive dual 4Ks at 60Hz or is a 1050Ti good enough?)

  • Motherboard - still haven't found one but research says GigaByte is a really good brand for Hackintoshes.

  • Memory (most likely 32GB, but what brand should I get? I remember GSkillz or something from back then)

  • Hard Drive (again, that PCIe drive looks interesting. Is it a huge improvement over traditional HDD/SSD? Anyway, I'm planning to get a SSD boot drive and a 4TB data drive)

  • Power supply (any recommendations? how much would I need?)

  • Cooling (I read that the K processors don't come with cooling, and that there are self-contained water coolers now [oh wow, didn't knew this is a thing now], any recommendations on this section?)


  • Web development (need lots of RAM)

  • Photoshop, Illustrator

  • Very light/casual gaming (most likely emulators for PS1, SNES, etc, Stardew Valley)

What I already have:

  • I snagged a couple of LG 27UD68 monitors (4K, 60Hz) during the Black Friday sale for $350 ea. I also got one of those gas-powered dual monitor mounts from Monoprice. Note that I don't mind getting a Nvidia card and not utilizing FreeSync.

  • Wireless mouse and wired Apple keyboard.

Apple Launches Heart Study You Can Join

Apple has announced the launch of the Apple Heart Study app, a research study using the Apple Watch heart rate sensor to collect data on irregular heart rhythms and notify users who may be experiencing atrial fibrillation (AFib).

AFib, the leading cause of stroke, is responsible for approximately 130,000 deaths and 750,000 hospitalizations in the US every year. Many people don’t experience symptoms, so AFib often goes undiagnosed. To calculate heart rate and rhythm, Apple Watch’s sensor uses green LED lights flashing hundreds of times per second and light-sensitive photodiodes to detect the amount of blood flowing through the wrist. The sensor’s unique optical design gathers signals from four distinct points on the wrist, and when combined with powerful software algorithms, Apple Watch isolates heart rhythms from other noise. The Apple Heart Study app uses this technology to identify an irregular heart rhythm.

“Every week we receive incredible customer letters about how Apple Watch has affected their lives, including learning that they have AFib. These stories inspire us and we're determined to do more to help people understand their health,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s COO. “Working alongside the medical community, not only can we inform people of certain health conditions, we also hope to advance discoveries in heart science.”

Sierra Freeze when left / goes to sleep.

Any way to fix this? Installed Sierra and it works well, but if I allow the machine to sleep, it freezes up / sometimes will not come out of sleep mode.

Also, if I leave it for a while, and come back, the entire machine will be slow and laggy, and only a reboot fixes. Any way to fix it?
