Dell Inspiron 7579 Mojave - No sound..

I cant seem to find the codec for the Realtek sound card in this laptop. Dells website just says "Realtek high definition audio driver" I booted into windows, and couldnt find the model in there either? So Im kind of confused.

So far Ive tried injecting through Clover, and using AppleALC and Lilu.
Ive had no luck.

Ive got sound to work on other machines, thought this would be no different. But I guess not. Any one have any suggestions? Ive been forum hunting for hours and havent had any luck. It doesnt seem that anyone has hackintoshed and posted about this laptop before..

Thanks in advance.

X299 Hackintosh Mojave Post-Install Issues - Perfect First Boot, Lag City After Reboot

After switching my video card from a 980ti to an rx vega 56 and doing a fresh install to Mojave, I've been having a very peculiar issue with my hack.

Essential specs:

Motherboard: MSI X299 Sli Plus

CPU: i7 7820x

GPU: Stock AMD Vega 56

Boot drive: Samsung 960 Pro 512gb

On my first boot from the USB, I had a perfect system. No lag, everything worked flawlessly, setup was exactly like an iMac Pro fresh from apple. The problems started when I rebooted. On my first go, I installed multibeast and modified config.plist, drivers, and kexts to match my good usb installer. This did not work and I was never able to reliably get into the OS again.

I then redid the install from scratch. This time, I played it safe. First, I just rebooted and used the USB only, did no post install. Weirdly now the system began to lag on second boot. Ignoring this, I replaced the stock EFI on the 960 Pro with the good one from the USB. The system now boots without the USB, albeit slowly with occasional runtime area issues, but in the OS lag is extreme. Typing has a multi second delay, but the cursor is a smooth 60fps.

I'm sort of stumped at this point, because to me it looks like the EFI is good, giving me perfect performance on the first boot, but I seem to be screwing something up after that.

Here's a link to the EFI partition as it is on the USB

Thanks for reading, any input is appreciated!

No Ethernet after multiple attempts and different things. Hopefully someone can help.

So I have an hp 110-023w tower with a Pentium g2020T, 8gb of single channel memory, and no graphics card. I recently installed mojave through legacy clover but no matter what the heck I do. No Ethernet. I've tried multiple kexts installs and no luck. Anyone have a single clue?

Will a Brix Gigabyte Brix i5H-8250 hackintosh be a big upgrade from my current MacMini (late 2012)?

Current MacMini specs: Late 2012, 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 4000

Was thinking of jumping on the Fry's deal

"Gigabyte Brix i5H-8250 Barebone PC with 240GB SSD" for $279 AR.

Would this be a major upgrade in speed/efficiency or just a minor improvement?

Mostly using this for video editing, file management, backup for our photos/videos, etc. No gaming.

I followed a vanilla guide with a Kaby Lake config and now I’m getting ACPI errors. What’s going on?

My first hackintosh up and running

Got my first hackintosh up and running everything seems to work. Dell Optiplex 3020 with i5 4590 running Mojave but my vRam for hd4600 graphics is only 7MB. Is this because I am using a VGA cable for right now?

Does long time sleep of hackintosh laptop do damage to its hardware ?

Does long time sleep of hackintosh laptop do damage to its hardware ?

Laptop specs:

thinkpad x1 yoga 3rd



I disable all the hibernation related option in this guide , and the picture below is my setting.

I'm curious about whether long time sleep(perhaps more than 8 hours) will do damage to its hardware.

if i installed Mojave on a laptop that has no support online what features would probably not work?

i want to try to install Mojave on my 5 year old laptop, what would probably not work?

it has an 3rd gen i5 and a gtx 630.

i know that i would have to change the wifi and bluetooth modules for some macOS features to work... what else? usb, headphone jack, keyboard, webcam, trackpad, ethernet...etc

this is just a trial run because im planning on upgrading my laptop and want to know how feasible it is to install macOS on a laptop that has no support online.

Laptop recommendation? Actual MacBook Pro replacement?

Hey guys, I've been thinking of building a hackintosh laptop and does anyone have any suggestions/thoughts on having it on something similar to a 15inch MacBook Pro replacement in physical form? (screen + thinness)?

Randomly can't wake from system lock (CTRL+SHIFT+EJCT)

I formed a habit of locking my terminal many years ago. Every time I go to leave my house or go to bed, I hit CTRL+SHIFT+EJECT to lock my Hackintosh. Until I upgraded to 14.3 (anything higher bricks my hackintosh, separate issue) everything was fine, but now that I have, when I hit a few keyboard buttons to wake up the display (the machine is set to stay "on", disks and all, the display is all that goes off), signal is sent to my display but the screen is just black. Nothing rendered. No mouse cursor, no response from the operating system. I can't get it to "sleep" again and try to re-wake it either.

Boot args include darkwake=8 dart=0 nv_disable=1 but I tested those and it won't boot without them.

Hardware: + Vega 56 + MSI Gaming M7 + Intel Core i7-6700

Any ideas how I might fix this? Thanks all.

Install OS X El

Hello all.

So I'm just about to give up. I've tried everything to get my hands on the El Capitan Installer. The App Store does not allow El Capitan downloads, nor does the recovery image allow me to reinstall El Capitan.

Would anyone have a spare Install OS X El Capitan in which could be shared through Google Drive? I understand this may be a bit inconvenient, but it would really just be a lifesaver if you have the extra time for it.

Thank you in advance. If anything is necessary in return please let me know :)
