I'm trying to make an hackintosh using Olarila. It just won't boot. I'm sorry, I'm new here.

macOS Installation could not be completed

I have a Dell Inspiron 5559 and when trying to Hackintosh, it installs, reboots, and then says this could not be completed. This is the one without an extra GPU. Thanks.

Hackintosh on RTX?

Is possible install any version of Mac OS on a built with amd cpu and a Nvidia Rtx gpu? If yes, will I be able to have gpu drivers? I would like install Mac OS to work and try some videoediting so I think I’ll need drivers.

Z390 Designare - Dual boot setting issues

I have two separate SSDs and I am trying to dual boot between windows 10 and OS.

2 of the settings per the OS guides state: Above 4g encoding - enabled CSM support - disabled

However, when I set these and try to boot to Windows SSD, it does not find the drive unless I disable both of these settings.

Has anyone else had this issue or found a resolution? I hadn’t seen this issue come up before for this

unable to boot mojave’s from clover, keep getting acpi error. pictures included

i built my own boot stick, no unibeast. tried to build my own config.plst file but found i got much farther using rehabMan’s clover laptop config UHD630

i am trying to hackintosh my gigabyte aero 15x which has a coffee lake i7, integrated uhd630 graphics, a gtx 1070 and a 4k monitor.

originally i followed this guide and got all the way to installing mojave until the install got stuck at two minutes and i fucked with stuff and now i rebuilt my install usb following the vanilla guide and can’t even get as far as i did.

using -x seems to have a different output but i havnt included pictures of it yet

i included pictures of my verbose output while it was running and when it stopped and a picture of my kexts files, i’m on mobile rn but if anyone wants an actual copy of my kext or config i’ll add that too

what is causing this error and what do i do? google hasn’t provided me much unfortunately

any help is greatly appreciated

Has anyone successfully got Open Core running on an Alienware laptop?

  • I'm fairly new to actually trying to install an OpenCore Hackintosh, so I am not sure if this is a low-effort or stupid post, but has anyone managed to get an Alienware laptop working with OpenCore?
  • I'm running an Alienware 13 R3 with an Intel Core i5-6300HQ and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060( or an Intel HD Graphics 530 considering NVIDIA doesn't run on macOS).
  • Originally, I got a Memory pool allocation failure error but managed to fix that. Then I finally got it to appear like it was starting to boot up with the long verbose text, but it would never finish, and now I am getting a "halting on critical error" message. I think one of the possible issues is my BIOS settings. I disabled secure boot-up, switched AHCI, and have UEFI boot-up, but I can't find any setting for Above4GDecoding, Fast Boot, or CSM on my Aptio Setup Utility BIOS. They just don't appear anywhere in the BIOS.
  • Has anyone had any luck getting an Alienware to function? Any compatible Alienware Skylake Config.plist? I get that it may be easier to go with Clover, but I started with OpenCore and am determined to get it booting and it seems like its smarter in the long run of having a Hackintosh.

VirtualBox High-Sierra iCloud fix (iMessage, Facetime, ect)

Hi, I'm totally new here and I really need some information on what I should do to make my virtual machine that runs macOs 10.13 like a real Mac (so I can get Two-Factor Autentification, iMessage and everything). I know this reddit is more for real hackintosh and not really for virtual machines but I only have a laptop and none of my component can work with any kind of tweaks (I already tried many things that never ended up okay) and because I couldn't find any information on how I could do what I want for this vm to work like a real mac, I'm asking here desperately to find someone who can help me with it.. Tell me if I'm doing something wrong on this post or I should give you more information about the setup and every thing.

Clover resolution stuck at 720p after switching from HDMI to DP

Due to problems with a black screen after turning it off and on again a user suggested to switch from HDMI to a DP cable.

The problem with the black screen is vanished. But now the clover boot screen is in 720p max. Prior it was in 4K.

I tried switching clover display settings and disabling CSM in bios, but nothing helped.

Anyone some tips on this? Thank you.

Installing Mojave on HP 8100 Elite SFF

  • CPU: Core i5 660 (Clarkdale)
  • GPU: GeForce GT630 2GB (Kepler)
  • MB: MS-7557 (Intel Q57 Express chipset)

Currently I'm having issues with USB (aka still waiting for root device, can't even get to the installer). Are there any patches available? Or even a proper EFI folder? And no, IOUSBFamily or any other kexts did not help at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

Accidentally deleted hackintosh drive

I feel so dumb and I'm still in shock.

Yesterday I booted into Windows and I wanted to delete a partition from a 500GB drive. Instead I've deleted my entire hackintosh partition (1TB) with most of my data in it.
Since then I haven't touched a thing because I was worried I could make things even worse.

This is how the drive looks now

The hackintosh was installed with Clover and formatted in APFS file system in a NVMe drive. Drive is now Unallocated.

Is there a way to recover any data at all or even better clone the entire drive and recover it completely?
I managed to get a 2TB drive just in case.

I do have a backup with SuperDuper but it's from 7 months ago and there's still a lot of data I would need to recover since then.

I have no idea where to start and I'm ready to pay for methods/app if there's need to.

I've read that EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard could help but in fact I don't know if the Windows version would be able to recover files from an APFS file system.

Catalina Desktop | MSI Z270 Gaming Pro | i7-7700k | GTX1080ti


PROBLEM: Catalina doesn't boot after vanilla install, repeatedly fails Gfx load process.

AIM: ultimately I am trying to build a dual boot win/macos system that can boot into either OS without switching the HDMI cable from IGP to 1080ti port. Realise that this may not be possible, so otherwise a dual boot system where I need to switch the cable manually is also ok.


  • MSI z270 Gaming Pro, i7-7700k, GTX1080ti
  • 32gb RAM
  • 1*256gb M.2 (windows system disk)
  • 1*1tb M.2 (macOS system disk)
  • 1*1tb hard disk (shared data drive)


  • successfully installed vanilla Catalina using Clover installer and a clean Catalina install file from Apple. Monitor plugged into the motherboard and using IGP. Network & iCloud worked fine, audio did not work.
  • after completing the install and before copying the config.plist and kexts to the EFT folder, I tried to clean the config.plist according to the kaby lake instructions here.
  • After cleaning the config.plist the system doesn't boot, and in verbose mode shows an error at this point:

Begin Gfx firmware load process ForceWake Multithread = 0x30002 CONFIG0 (0xD00) = 0x80000000 GT_THREAD_STATUS = 0x400b0000 Doing retry #xx Hash data from ME never returned, status = 1, doing retry 

This is repeated 50 times before the system reboots.

I've attached my config.plist file here and a screenshot of my kexts folder. Would be grateful for any help in fixing this!

Separately, what should I do to get audio to work (Realtex ALC1220 codec) and whether it's possible to get the system to boot from the 1080ti at all.

Best wifi dongle for catalina?

I've recently picked up an XPS 9380 and am wanting to get macOS installed onto it. The WiFi card is unfortunately soldered onto the board, so I'm stuck with using a dongle.

Anyone have any recommendations for a decently priced dongle that works with Catalina.

Opencore and updates

I previously had a hackintosh that worked well until an update that came out broke it. I’m considering resinstalling OSX on my computer but I’m curious how the updates are and if they’re better with opencore than with clover?

Before it seemed like a crap shoot weather a new OSX update would break your otherwise working install. Has anything changed with this or am I missing something ? /r/

iPhone 9 Cases Purportedly Arrive at Best Buy With April 5 Inventory Date [Image]

Case inventory for the upcoming 'iPhone 9' has purportedly arrived at Best Buy ahead of the new smartphone's launch.

A source tells 9to5Mac that the retailer has received cases from Urban Armor Gear and others with instructions that they are not to be merchandised until April 5th. The Urban Armor Gear case is from the Monarch Series and is designed for the 'New iPhone 4.7", 2020'.

What’s also notable is that Best Buy is being told not to inventory these cases until April 5, which is this coming Sunday. It’s unlikely that April 5 will be the release date for the iPhone 9, but one possibility is that Apple announces the iPhone 9 this week with availability sometime next week.
