Does anyone have Catalina or Mojave running on a Asus z97i plus?

I’ve been trying to get my internet install working all day but can’t get LAN for the life of me. I’ve tried every Intel LAN kext I can think of and frankly, I’m stuck. From what I’ve gathered, my motherboard uses Intel’s i218v LAN chipset but hours of Googling hasn’t resolved my issue.

Would love to hear if anyone has any insight into this issue. Thanks!

Using hackintosh commercially

Hello everyone,

I have been thinking about installing vanilla hackintosh on my laptop at work (for development purposes) but I was wondering it's feasibility for using it commercially. I have read the software license agreement and on top of it, it says, "For use on Apple-branded Systems". Does this sentence makes it illegal to use hackintosh at work? I couldn't see any other term that would make it illegal in the rest of the SLA.

I don't understand much about software licenses, if you could help me on this, it would be amazing.

Apple Acquired 'AirTag' Trademark for Upcoming Tracking Device [Report]

Apple has bought the rights to the 'AirTag' trademark for its upcoming tracking device, reports Russian-language site

The Russian group of companies ISBC sold Apple its trademark AIRTAG, told RBC a source familiar with the details of the transaction.

Apple has accidentally leaked a lot of evidence that it's working on a Tile-like tracker; however, the 'AirTag' name was just recently discovered in the public release of iOS 13.2.

Mobile audio workstation

I've been a musician that uses a computer for live performance for a while. After using a macbook pro for years, I decided that the thermal management just wasn't good enough to be reliable in any performance situation. I am pushing the limits of the tech, using a lot of plugins and samplers and stuff so I need a machine that can perform well at any temp.

I built I semi portable rig using a small desktop case, with a noctua cooler and a 9900k processor. It is amazing, but I'm starting to do some international travel and need a more portable solution.

I have found that the 9900k seems completely overboard for audio...other aspects of the computer seem to bottleneck way before the cpu gets bogged down, so I think I could switch to a laptop that has proper thermal management.

Do you guys have any recommendations for an extremely performant (for audio, not gaming), thermally reliable laptop? The XPS 15 keeps coming up in my searches but I hardly trust Dell.

How to set slide parameter

(Sorry for my poor English.I'm not native English speaker.)

I built a Hackintosh PC and it doesn't boot without OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi, and I replaced it with AptioMemoryFix.efi and set 1-10 slide parameters and here's results bellow.

Slide= Error allocating 0x1196e pages at 0x(...) alloc type 2
0 7be3000
1 7de3000
2 7fe3000
3 81e3000
9 8de3000
10 8fe3000

Thus the formula to calculate allocating page is 0x7be3000+x*0x200000, and there are many empty pages from 0x100000000.

And I set slide=1950 and allocating page should be 0xFB7E3000 ,but the result was 0x16b6a000.

How do I set allocating page freely?

My mobo is gigabyte h370 hd3.

OpenCore Help Creating a Boot Entry

Trying to get a macOS / Linux dual boot with OpenCore up and running. I'm using an MSI motherboard (big mistake) that does NOT support adding boot entries from the BIOS.

My OpenCore config works 100% when I boot off my USB, and I've gotten through the install and everything. Booting to the system works too. But I can't get my motherboard to register OpenCore as a UEFI entry (even after copying over the relevant folders to my ESP partition).

I'm using bcfg (run off a clover EFI folder) to insert /EFI/OC/OpenCore.efi as a boot entry, but somehow that's failing. Calling the .efi file directly returns the error: The image is not an application.

How should I create an opencore boot entry?

Definitive answer? USBInjectAll + SSDT-UIAC.aml + port limit patches?

I have created a custom SSDT-UIAC.aml for my build, and it is working beautifully... I read the other day that I can remove USBInjectAll.kext if I have custom SSDT in place.

Is it then possible to remove the 4 USB port limit patches, as I am now within that 15 limit ?!?!

Any and all feedback graciously accepted :-)

Catalina Bluetooth

Hello all,

I recently made a Hackintosh on a Matebook X Pro, and everything works great except for bluetooth. I was about to install RehabMan's BRCM patch, but then I remembered that I don't actually have a Broadcom Bluetooth (Part of my Intel wifi card. I can get it running doing some funky stuff with VMs, but I need Kexts for it to work properly) device. I also found the guide confusing as to what Kexts to install(Do I install the NoPatchRAM and the PatchRam?). I'm also running on Catalina and I remember reading somewhere that Apple changed Catalina's Bluetooth, so I wanted to check and make sure I'm even installing the right Kexts. Does anybody have any insights?

Need some advice before building a ryzentosh for christmas

I am planning on building a Ryzentosh for a christmas gift. The person mainly use Adobe Lightroom and Unity.

  • Should i go with an AMD GPU or a NVIDIA GPU ?
  • I read that all Adobe software doesnt work on a Ryzentosh, is this true?
  • Which version of macOS should i install (high sierra, mojave or catalina). I would prefer the newest but which one has the best compatibility?
  • I am building a Ryzentosh to someone who will have no idea that this is not a real Mac, is it completely unrealistic?

Switched to iMacPro 1,1 from 18,3. Now having a lot of sleep issues.

Switched to iMacPro 1,1 from 18,3. Now having a lot of sleep issues.

Specs: i5-8600k, Gigabyte Z370N WiFi, 16gb Ram, Sapphire Pulse RX 580, 1.25tb Fusion Drive over 970 EVO 250GB m.2 NVME and 1Tb 860 EVO SSD

When I switched SMBIOS I redid my USBMap.kext but I've still been having a lot of sleep issues. As in, my computer goes to sleep but then wakes up and stays awake. I figured maybe it's because I upgraded to Catalina? And that may be the final cause but another thing I realized is that when I redid my USBMap.kext, I never redid the EC and USBX tables for my ACPI/Patched folder. So I figured I'd give that a shot before blaming it on macOS. Anyway, when I went to redo using the tables I got this nice message:

Anything you guys could suggest? I'm at a loss here. Thanks.

Will Nvidia 10 series systems ever be able to run Mojave/ Catalina without using iGPU?

Does anyone know if us Nvidia gpu users r ever gonna be able to use Mac OS Mojave’s/Catalina without using iGPU?

No luck with 5700xt upgrade from Vega.

Was successfully running 10.15.1 with my trusty 8700+Asus z370p+Vega 56 combo. Bought a 5700xt that literally came in today. Made sure to update WEG and lilu. Tested the updates with same setup. Then I threw in the 5700xt, annnnnd it restarts when trying to boot.

Tried doing verbose to check it out and I tried the pikera flag to see if it helps. Same results either way No luck, giving me Apple key issues among other things. Tried disabling igpu in bios just in case, no luck. What am I missing? Should I remove WEG all together?

Card is a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming OC. I really don't wanna go back to the Vega with this beauty sitting here. I'll add verbose screenshots shortly.

Instant wake from sleep

I have recently noticed that my setup will not sleep and instead wake up pretty much instantly. I believe it is due to the BCM943062CS card but I’m not sure whats causing it. I’ve looked at BIOS settings and have mapped the USB ports correctly with the internal 255 header for the Bluetooth USB.

Anybody know of a way to build a Windows 10 installer on macOS Mojave? I’ve tried every possible search result on Google, but nothing is working.

Only reason this is Hackintosh related is that I’m trying to install the drivers and firmware for update for my new Gigabyte Titan Ridge thunderbolt card and it turns out you can only do it on Windows. Being in a Mac only house has proven challenging for creating a Windows 10 USB installer.

I’ve tried every option on Google and YouTube that I could find with no luck. Formatting in Disk Utility, Terminal, using Unetbootin, cp, dd, even tried building the installer in a Windows VirtualBox VM, but none of these installers work on my machine. The installer loads but always says it can’t find the drivers needed to run the installer.

I even bought a dedicated SSD for the Windows install thinking the partition might be the problem but no luck.

Does anyone have any tips for creating the Windows 10 USB installer in macOS?

DJI Announces Ultra-Light 'Mavic Mini' Drone [Video]

DJI unveiled the new DJI Mavic Mini today, an ultra-light folding drone that weighs just 249 grams.

Mavic Mini builds on the technological innovations in DJI’s renowned series of folding Mavic drones, from the original Mavic Pro through Mavic Air and Mavic 2, to pack professional-quality drone features into the lightest possible frame. That puts Mavic Mini in the safest drone category, which in many areas exempts it from regulations that apply to other, heavier drones. Drone pilots must always understand and follow local laws and regulations.

The drone is able to capture footage in high definition and offers enhanced, stable flight performance with one of the longest flight times for its size.

I need to know a reliable way to find compatible components

I'm very new to the Hackintosh world. So I decided what better way than by Reddit.

I actually got my first Mac about a year ago (underpowered MacBook Pro 2015 13" that I use mostly for music production). And now I've decided to sell it and attempt to build a Hackintosh, because I'm now addicted to OS X, but need a more powerful system.

So I would appreciate if someone could direct me to some reliable sources for parts that I can begin to look at.

And if this info helps any, my budget range is approximately $600 - $900 (I'll probably swap to more powerful components after I discover my first experience with Hackintosh). Thanks

antenna adapters.

antenna adapters.

So I bought a BCM94360CD, and a BCM94331CD blutooth/wifi module. I also bought an adapter so I can replace my current WiFi card, which is pre-installed in the motherboard ( STRIX Z370-G GAMING (WI-FI AC)) only problem is that the preinstalled has only two antennas and the connection is smaller that the one on the new wifi cards. Is there an adapter that I can connect those antennas to these cards? I know there are PCI adaptors like this one, But i cannot use it because all my pcie slots are taken, by 2 gpu's and a 10gb network card. Also my next building I'm planning on using mini ITX board so the pci slot will be taken by graphics card.

Also which one of the two is better?
