With no os being installed, and this being my first attempt at a hackintosh or Ryzentosh. how would I install OS X then BCA win 10? when I start the computer the bios or brand screen dose not appear but rather a reboot and format new or correct drivers? never done a hackintosh or seen this in years of pc building.

Not sure where to ask but I thought of this community as being the right one

So I have a 2011 Mac Book Pro with Komplete 8 installed on it.

I also now have a 2015 Mac Book Pro that I'd like to have Komplete 8 on it but sadly I don't have any of the disks or anything. For what I know, it's a legit copy of the program. A buddy from way back gave it to me and told me he had an available license for it to be put on my computer.

I'm wondering if there is a way to transfer it from my old computer to my new computer. The program itself (plugin?) doesn't need internet connectivity to work, so I'm thinking it should be possible if all files are transferred to the right spot? Not sure if it's that simple though

Clover Can't Find USB?

Clover Can't Find USB?

I've been following this guide to try and hackintosh my T420. I successfully created an install media, but I still need to change the EFI with clover. I've got Sierra in a VM through VMware, and the mac recognizes it, but Clover doesn't. It only lets me install to my EFI for the VM, not the USB. Clover Customizer the EFI folder too, but when I open it from Clover Customizer, the folder is empty. How can I get Clover to modify the EFI for the bootable USB>

[Help] Setting up BCM94360CS2 kit - pins not connecting properly?

So I bought this card and this adapter, and they seem to slot in fine, but when trying to connect the antenna pins they "click" into place but come right off when I let go. I can see them fitting in flush with the antenna ports but they just don't want to stay in place. Any advice? Should I tape them down with electrical tape or something? Is it even necessary? Range isn't an issue.

All USB Wifi For High Sierra/Mojave work for Hackintosh too?

So I currently installed Hackintosh High Sierra on my Lenovo Y700 i7-6700hq, with a millions of problems and even more hours of troubleshooting per week. Now that everything is set and done, I was wanting to add the one basic feature that I would need to efficiently run the Mac which I had installed. So I needed wifi.

BG: I tried to install the Realtek Ethernet Adaptor Kext and other Ethernet Kexts as well, it would say installed succesfully, but when connecting ethernet cable, no real connection was formed so not really sure what happened would like help on that too.

So I am now looking for the USB Wifi way to run internet on the piece of computer.

Tldr: Does any usb wifi that says it will run on mac Os work on Hackintosh as it is basically acting as Mac or will there be complications and chances of not working?? Like for example, these USB Wifi says it will work on mac, would it work on my Hackintosh too??

Note: Also if it is possible can someone help me with the ethernet issue as well??

Well, I have 3 things. One: what's a good wifi bluetooth solution that is known to work with macOS Sierra and newer UNDER 42$ (that's all I have, I understand it isn't a lot of money.)

Is there a workaround to get iMovie on 10.12.6? I was surprised to see that I couldn't get it (MacApp store is the only iCloud thing I have working besides actual iCloud. I have to wait two weeks for iMessage shadowban to be over before I can use it.

And lastly, is it true that High Sierra and Mojave don't work well with the GTX 660?


i5 2400

8gb DDR3 1333mhz RAM

GTX 660

1 terabyte 7200rpm WD Blue HDD

I'm currently using ethernet shared from my laptop to use internet on my hack.

Reinstalling MacOS on mostly authentic Apple hardware

So I have a Mac Pro 5,1 that is all original hardware except for the graphics card (an MSI RX570). It currently has only linux on it, but I would like reinstall MacOS on it. I had planned to boot into the internet recovery mode, but if I hold Cmd+R or Cmd+Option+R while booting the screen remains black until I release the keys, at which point it begins booting the linux installation. Does anyone know how I could get internet recovery mode to boot or if there is another way I can reinstall MacOS?

Is an RX 570 or 580 a worthwhile replacement for a GTX 970?

With the lack of Apple support for Nvidia and the posts about AMD cards working I've been getting tempted to get an RX 570 after seeing this post from However my current card is a GTX 970 I've had for about two years, and from the comparison articles the RX 570 doesn't quite seem up-to-par with the GTX 970. For a long time, even before Mojave, I've spent more time on the Windows side playing games though. The most demanding game I currently play is probably Fallout 4. I wanted Fallout 76 but the minimum CPU is an i5-6600K and I only have an i5-6500.

With Nvidia cards I've gotten the impression that the next generation up (previous generation model number plus 90) is around the same equivalent mode, so a GTX 970 is about the same as a GTX 1060, no? Would it be a better investment to go with an RX 580 instead?

I got some eBay gift cards for Christmas and was considering getting one, thinking I can offset the cost with the money I make from selling the GTX 970. What's your input on this?

Is it true that i cannot control my Graphicscard Fanspeed?

Hey there, i did quite some research and am surprised that i cannot find anything to make my RX570 more silent.

This is especially confusing for me because i think this is a natively supported card, isn't it?

I am out of options in my UEFI, i made chassis and processor fans as silent as possible, on Linux i have a script that automatically puts the graphicscards fans down when not needed so this is quite satisfying but on macOS (High Sierra), i find the noise quite disturbing... . :(

If there is something i may have overlooked, i'd be quite happy!

All in Razer Blade Pro Hackintosh - Update 12/31/2018

Was able to get most things working using various KEXTs placed in Other folder.

Did have a go at trying to get the Intel wireless M.2 card to work and kept getting KP's and could not get a proper error dump to investigate further. Started with the available project available, compiled and installed. Later installed the Broadcom card with most success. BT worked, then did not work. So deeper dive there to come. Once I have this figured out will try to adapt to the Intel card and try to post a beta KEXT for others interested. This will take me about a year so if something else develops sooner, use that. This is for me a hobby and as others pointed out probable will never work.

Was able to get the SD card reader to work simply using the USBInjectAll.kext. Now need to go deeper and do the GIPO layout and report back on a patch for the RBP.

Sound is working with the Voodoo KEXT however I am sure there is a proper Layout ID that will work. I have tried all the ones for ALC298 Realtek without success. Layout 29 without the Voodoo KEXT gives a level on the internal microphone as if detecting sound but does not give audio output. This likely will take DSDT learning to get it working. So more to come here.

Trackpad still not working so using a USB mouse for now. Since I never ran Windows on the Blade before upgrades mentioned in previous posts, did verify the trackpad does work using the Ubuntu "live CD".

Highly recommend backing up your installation with Carbon Copy Cloner and not using Time Machine. TM for me has been highly erratic on Mojave 10.14.2 so will not be using it on the Razer running 10.13.6. CCC makes a nice bootable copy. Also back up your EFI folder as a zip file and copy to the desktop of the clone in case.

Stuck on apple logo during install

Hi, so I’ve been following the installation instructions for high Sierra from tonymacx86 and created the install flash drive from my wife’s 2014 iMac. Everything went smooth there. Then tried to install it on my home built pc (i7 7700k, gigabyte gaming k5 z270, evga gtx 1080ti founders) and after selecting the “install high Sierra” option from the list I’m stuck at the apple logo with a loading bar under. I’ve waited one full hour and it’s still there... not sure what I did wrong here... please help :/

Strange problems with booting after cloning current SSD to new Samsung 970 EVO M.2...

So I just got my new Samsung 970 EVO SSD in and cloned my current

SSD (Samsung 860 EVO) to the new one. I put my working EFI folder and

kexts in the right places as well. Everything should be running perfectly

like my current SSD does, but clover gets a busy timeout every time.

Something is wrong and I have no clue what it could be. I attached a clover

verbose log dump as well. Any help would be appreciated.

R9 270x HDMI issues on Mojave

I just finished upgrading from High Sierra to Mojave, everything works except for my second screen.

From what I know the R9 270x should work OOB, and that has been the case for High Sierra with a little help from Lilu + WhateverGreen.

So far I've tried updating Lilu/WhateverGreen and messing a bit with the Graphics options in Clover. When I try to boot without injecting ATI all I get is a black screen after the Apple logo. If I do inject ATI I can get to the system but only DisplayPort works, I get no signal on HDMI. Booting with only HDMI results in a black screen after the Apple logo.

What's weird is that WhateverGreen doesn't even seem to be getting loaded, I see no sign of it when I run kextstat or ioreg.

Sleep/wake & screen brightness for MSI GL72M 7RDX laptop w/ Intel HD 630

I've been trying to solve the sleep/wake and screen brightness issue for awhile and I have a feeling they are related issues. I was able to get screen brightness controls to appear in Preferences by following this post, but the only thing it does is stay 100% brightness until it gets down to the last step, then goes black, no in between brightness adjustment.

As for sleep/wake, what I experience is when my machine goes to sleep and you try and wake it, I just get a backlit black screen. Now I've tried solutions involving IntelGraphicsFixup, WhateverGreen and read threads from multiple different sites about how to get this working. This machine seems to be light on people building with it, so I've been looking at sibling MSI laptop builds for guidance and it seems to be a common problem. Though at its root, this seems like a solvable problem since there are plenty of i7 7700HQ and Intel HD 630 systems out there.

Can anyone offer some insight on what I might be doing wrong in this? I have all my setup documentation on GitHub, and here's a direct link to my Clover folder.

Clover not loading correct config.plist

I was referencing someone else’s config comparing it to my own as I’m still having a few hiccups with my igpu on the 9900k. For easy comparison I had 2 clover configurator windows open and I believe something got saved incorrectly and now my mojave partition won’t boot. The strange thing is, looking at my mojave efi with file explorer ++ in Windows, it’s showing the correct config is saved. Why would this other config file be loading, and where would it be stored so I can get rid of it? Has anyone else had this issue? I’m 100% sure it’s loading the other config file even though it’s no where to be found in my efi: I always run -v and that flag is deselected, theme and time-out is missing, hidden volumes are present, and smbios is even different. Any and all help is appreciated.

My goal here is to build a super stable and powerful workstation(no gaming intended) that runs Mac OS X.

I'll be using the computer mostly for programming and heavy chrome browsing.

I'm not ordering from Amazon or Egg, I'm ordering from a non-English store.

The problem is that not everything is in stock right now, so I would be SUPER grateful for suggesting anything else that fits better in my budget.

NullCPUPowermanagement disappeared??

I was trying to fix the SN on my hack so that I could use apple stuff. Well for some reason NullCPUPowermanagement disappeared when I did that, and now it won’t boot. I’m currently trying to recreate my installer (knew I shouldn’t have formatted it) to get into terminal. Recovery mode doesn’t boot either. I really don’t know how to make bootable media, just a vague idea (plus my el capitan vm is so SLOW) Is there anyway to fix this without the installer?

[Success] High Sierra on i5 4690k, ASRock Z97 Pro4, GTX960

I am incredibly impressed with the improvements in hackintoshing over the last two years and my machine is running better than ever. I didn't have to do the disable SIP-edit-enable SIP method to get the audio working, setting Clover was smoother than ever and picked up my windows drive as well, and now the audio jack detects whether something is plugged in. Also, it used to have screen flashes before I installed the NVidia web drivers, and now it is still smooth before those are installed. Thank you wonderful hackintoshers.

Background: Thanks to this community I was able to get my hackintosh running two years ago. A year ago I spent half a day on the upgrade to 10.12 which was more challenging than expected; I had to make several changes to the config. Just yesterday I completed a fresh install of High Sierra and submit it below for anyone with similar hardware.

  • Asrock Z97 Pro4
  • i5 4690k
  • GTX 960
  1. Backup BIOS A->B
  2. Update BIOS from 2.5 to 2.6. For me, no changes to mac config required, unlike the painful upgrade from 2.3 to 2.5 I did.
  3. Download High Sierra from the mac app store. You cannot find the link by searching the mac app store. Instead, you have to go to the "upgrade to Mojave" page on, then scroll down to find the link to install High Sierra instead. It will take you to a secret place in the mac app store to download.
  4. Quit the installer when it auto-launches.
  5. Through Disk Utility, erase a USB drive and format as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID Partition Map. Took two tries to get it done, error first time. I used a SanDisk Cruzer 16 GB.
  6. sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ --volume /Volumes/WUBBA/
  7. Install Clover Configurator (used
  8. Mount EFI from the USB
  9. Copy over the EFI from the website:
  10. DELETE unneeded kexts: Atheros (my board has Intel LAN, not Atheros), CodecCommander, Realtek, SmallTree
  11. Open the config file in Clover Configurator and make the following changes:
    1. SMBIOS iMac15,1 which is an i5-4690
    2. ACPI: C and P states. Leave the new patches in place.
    3. Boot: nvda_drv=1
    4. darkwake=8
    5. Devices: audio inject = 1, ResetHDA checked
    6. Leave the rest the same.
  12. Boot from USB.
  13. Reformat target drive as Mac OS Extended (journaled) with GUID
  14. Install. Reboot twice, choosing the Clover USB in the BIOS boot menu, then within Clover choosing the new HDD.
  15. Reboot and it should start from the new HDD. Walk through the Apple config screens. Hooray - installed!
  16. Make sure the OS is the most recent version and do that update first, since it will break the NVidia driver if not.
  17. Download the appropriate NVidia driver from In my install, the correct one was 17G65. If you download the wrong one, the NVidia installer error dialog will tell you the correct one. Reboot and NVidia should work.
  18. Set up EFI files on the HDD: install Clover Configurator on the new machine, mount EFI, and copy the files over from the USB, verbatim. Now it should boot from the SSD alone. Test by removing the USB and rebooting. I had to F2 and manually choose the new HDD as primary boot device in the BIOS; after that it remembered and worked each time. If it doesn't boot, replace the USB, use it to boot the new drive, and you have the chance to fix it.
  19. Enable TRIM: sudo trimforce enable, reboot

Now, I want to install windows 10 on the same drive on another partition.

Since the disk is GUID I must to make the installer of windows GUID too, but beacause I have legacy bios I can't boot to the usb flash drive installer.

If I make the usb flash drive installer on MBR partiton I can boot to the installer but I can't Install the windows because the disk is GUID.

What should I do?
