Hackintosh boot drive keeps failing

My specs are as follows I7 4790K Asus Maximus vii formula 16GB 1866mhz ddr3 ram 1TB 850 evo ssd Gtx 980ti

I’ve been trying to use a VM of MacOS to create the boot drive, but anytime I use the clover efi boot loader to get the drive ready the drive unmounts and it fails. Any suggestions would be great

Graphics glitch with WHQL enabled.

I'm trying to have WHQL enabled on my bios as I dual boot into Windows and I like the boost in boot speed and the proper resolution of the windows logo/clover etc. When I enable WHQL on my bios t causes the defects seen in the video, basically rendering the computer useless until I reboot and turn WHQL off. I'd really like to sort this as it's my last compromise to having a hackintosh and it's a tad annoying!

I have:

MSI z270M Mortar

i7 6700k

nVidia GTX 1070ti 8Gb - Web drivers installed

16Gb DDR4

500Gb Sandisk SSD

When I boot clover menu and click Mac OS install, I get a black screen with a with crossed circle. And then nothing. Any ideas?

6th Gen Intel Core I-5-6200u (3m cache, up to 2.8 ghz). 8gb LPDDR3 1866MHz. Intel (R) HD Graphics. 256gb solid state drive. 13.3 inch qhd. I have stock WiFi card in right now so I can still use my computer until I get this fixed. But I have a DW1560 ready to go when needed.

BIOS: Disable secure boot. Disable v/t for direct I/o. Auto os Recovery threshold to off. Set data operations to disabled.

I ordered a usb Mac OS Sierra online. I installed clover to the usb UEFI (usb was put into gpt) I mounted EFI Partition and replaced the clover file with the guide that I’m following of the same computer model. Dell xps 13 9350.

Guide I’m following:

When I load into clover I click on Mac OS installer and I get a black screen with white circle through it. Kinda losing hope here. Any help is greatly appreciated.

ASUS ROG Strix Z390-I, i5-9600k, post-install problems

Hello, all—I posted this in TonyMac and got banned. :( I used the vanilla install method and didn't realize I couldn't ask for support there for non-TonyMac install methods. I thought if I posted the clover settings that I used, it'd be enough. Anyway, I'll move my discussion here, typing it all out again. :)

My Build

  • Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix Z390-I
  • CPU: Core i5-9600k (Intel® UHD Graphics 630)
  • Memory: Ballistix Sport LT 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DIMM 288-Pin BLS2K16G4D240FSC
  • AIO: Cooler Master MasterLiquid LC120E RGB
  • PS: EVGA 550 B3, 80+ Bronze 550W
  • Case: Cooler Master RC-130-KKN1 Elite 130 - Mini-ITX
  • Boot Storage: 1 Samsung EVO 250GB SSD
  • Additional Storage: 2 Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD - CT1000P1SSD8 (2TB RAID 0 via software raid) 1 4TB Seagate Barracuda

Configuration and Kexts used for installer

Clover Setup

I followed the Vanilla installation guide here.

USB Clover Bootloader


  • AppleALC.kext
  • IntelMausiEthernet.kext
  • Lilu.kext
  • USBInjectAll.kext
  • VirtualSMC.kext
  • WhateverGreen.kext (it's included, but I don't know if I actually needed it since I don't have a dedicated GPU)


The installation went really well. It completed without issue. The end result was that I could boot into Mac OS from the main SSD while using Clover Bootloader (USB). The issues that I encountered weren't catastrophic, but they did make Mac OS unusable:

  • Graphics The graphics were jittery and would sometimes freeze and lag for several seconds.
  • Audio The audio wasn't recognized at all.
  • Wired Ethernet Network This one was odd and hinders me from doing any google-fu from the Hackintosh itself. The network will work fine for brief moments, then it will slow to a halt, not allowing anything more than a crawl. A download won't complete, a speedtest will not complete, basic web browsing takes several minutes to load a page. Oddly, the system tools like iCloud Photos seemed to work okay—it was downloading photos without issue. That may have just been my imagination, but I monitored activity monitor and Photos was using the network fine. That being said, even pausing Photos network activity, I couldn't browse like normal.

What I've tried So, plainly, I don't really know where to go from here, which is why I'm asking for help. :) The vanilla guide that I linked to doesn't explain what to do after initial installation, which I am guessing the next step is to modify the EFI partition on the main hard drive so that it can boot from there as well as resolve the issues I'm seeing. If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Dual Boot Windows 10 & High Sierra Question

Hi guys,

Without getting into the details too much in my system I wanted to ask the community if they might know the answer, or if it's a quick fix. I had a stable system running of High Sierra on a separate HD, and then I decided to add another drive and give the dual boot system a try. I got my Windows 10 install going on a separate HD from the mac OS - but I forgot to disconnect my Mac OS HD during installation and my clover bootloader is gone. I can't get back into the mac - i tried physically disconnecting the drive the windows was installed on, and I also tried a bunch of different bios options.

Is there a quick fix for this? Or do I start completely over? And if I start completely over does anyone know where to find High Sierra? It's not in the app store anymore - it's mojave. Or if you need more information about my system - I guess I can figure that out. lol
