Bitsa Hackintosh Attempt Need Help

Hi everyone,

I have a D5400XS AAD94664-501motherboard with 2 x Core 2 Extreme CPU X9775 @ 3.20GHz CPUs and am trying to put a version of Mac OS on it, but it's putting up a lot of resistance. My GPU is an nVidia Quadro K600.

The motherboard apparently will boot to UEFI as an option and this is selected.

I've disabled C1E and XD Technology, Intel VT and Intel VT for Direct I/O (VT-d) are still enabled.

When I try a vanilla standard Clover install, whether it's via a USB stick, or a USB HDD that I attach internally, I get no Mac OS, no Clover windows, nothing. I set that disk as the first boot option, but it seems to just not see it. I've tried High Sierra, Mojave, with Clover r5107, just selecting the standard install options. I tried selecting MacPro 5,3 but that didn't make a difference.

The system boots into Ubuntu 18.x perfectly well, Windows 7 too.

Ideally, I'd like to run Mojave, but High Sierra would also be ok for me. BIOS version is XS54010J.86A.1175.2008.1121.1010 dated 21st Nov 2008. I have a MacBook Pro Mid-2014 running Mojave that I can use to make the boot loader.

If someone could please give me some clues, I'd really appreciate it.

Particularly want to know -

a) What's the most current version of Mac OS I can expect to run on this hardware?

b) Which bootloader do you think I should use? I'm comfortable with Clover, but I'm not sure which version of this I need to use which would be appropriate for the Mac OS version that would be compatible with this hardware.

c) Which hardware profile I should be choosing in the SMBIOS that would be most compatible.

d) BIOS settings I should watch out for.

Many thanks in advance to everyone who can offer any help.

USB Ports don't work on Enoch 10.11.6

I recently installed Enoch because both OpenCore and Clover don't work on my old HP Pavilion DV6700. Everything works but the USB ports, and I was wondering if there are any patches for Chameleon or Enoch on USB ports. All of my USB ports are 2.0 btw. I've searched online to no avail and was hoping someone on this subreddit could help!

FileVault enabled, how to install missing FileVault drivers via terminal

Hello Hackintosh community,

I recently had one of those dumb decisions that happens from time to time.

I decided to enable FileVault , and soon as I saw the encryption process starting, I panicked and shut down the computer. When I booted up I realized I couldn´t boot from my main disk and when trying to boot from FireVault, I was led to a black screen.

It was only after reading that File Vault needs some procedures to work on Hackintosh that I realized I was in a deep hole with this.

I found a post where the exact situation happened,

but Im not really a expert on this subject, as I´ve always done fresh installations following guides, and altough I´ve had obstacles in the past, they were always kind of simple to fix.

Im having trouble trying to understand how to install missing FileVault drivers via terminal, as suggested in the post.

If someone could help me shed some light on this subject I will be much grateful.

monitor does not wake from sleep

I just did a fresh install of Catalina using OC. I left it running over night and when I came back the monitor doesn't wake form sleep. I can still see the system is running (fans leds etc). I try to unplug and replug the keyboard and mouse and hit a few keys. I also try to unplug and replug the displayport on the GPU but no dice. My GPU is a Sapphire Vega RX56. My USB ports have been mapped (total 12 ports). How can I troubleshoot this?

Clover Mojave Hackintosh


Earlier today, I successfully got a vanilla install of Mojave going. Everything was working fine, even got app store, imessage, etc to work. Then I installed logic pro and final cut pro. For some reason FCP did not boot (Logic worked fine). So I followed this tutorial

I did all the patching, also replaced aptiomemory fix with the emuvariable and osxaptiofix2drv-free2000. After doing this and rebooting, my mac os was working perfectly. Final Cut Pro loaded up and everything. Then I left for 2 hours only to come back to find that it stopped working. I reset my computer and behold FInal Cut pro opens up and works again. However after a minute or so, no applications can open, not even terminal or anything. So i restart my computer and now I only get the please go to errors no matter what i do. I tried booting into all the other drives on clover and even tried reinstalling macos on a usb stick with a fresh mojave clover install on it and it all comes to the same error message.

Also, whenever my SSD is connected to my motherboard, I can't open up the BIOS on start up, its just a black screen no matter how many times or how long i hit F2 or DEL. When I disconnect my SSD, I am able to access BIOS.

Is there a way I can fully wipe my SSD as I would like to start from scratch but this time trying an opencore installation? I can't access anything past the Clover boot drive menu and I can't access BIOS when my SSD is plugged in.

Any help is appreciated, thank you

Gigabyte 5700xt gaming OC vs Sapphire pulse

Hi all, Building my first hackintosh and from what I’ve read it Is best to stick to the Sapphire cards, I’m not sure how true that is. Does anyone have good luck with the gigabyte 5700xt? The sapphire is a bit more and also out of stock.

Huawei Matebook X Pro running Catalina

Huawei Matebook X Pro running Catalina

Successfully created a Huawei Matebook X Pro Hackintosh today starting with Catalina 10.15.3.

2018 stock model:

  • i7-8550U
  • GeForce MX150
  • 16GB RAM
  • 512GB SSD

The CLOVER from gnodipac886's Github worked for the 10.15.3 install:

Thank you gnodipac886!

I created a UEFI-bootable USB with a Cover partition and a Catalina install partition. I used the direct CLOVER folder from Github and the config.plist provided, not the config-install.plist, and the install worked without issues.

I then upgraded the laptop to Catalina 10.15.5 and it hung on loading the Intel graphics firmware, so I added -disablegfxfirmware to the Clover boot args and successfully upgraded to 10.15.5 through system preferences software update.

All major features are working:

  • Touchpad
  • Touchscreen
  • Battery Status
  • Backlit Keyboard
  • Sleep

I'm using a dongle for the Wi-Fi.

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4210U
  • GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4400
  • RAM: 8gb DDR3
  • Motherboard/Laptop model: Dell Inspiron 5447
  • Audio Codec: ALC255/ALC3234
  • Ethernet Card: Realtek Ethernet
  • Wifi/BT Card: BCM94360NG
  • What guide/tool followed:
  • What part I got an issue with: Trackpad and keyboard don't work after waking from sleep
  • What files/config I am using: Here is my EFI folder minus SMBIOS info
  • Extra Info: Everything works except this one issue with the sleep. After the laptop goes to sleep, it doesn't seem to wake from keyboard or trackpad, so I push the power button. After it wakes from sleep, the trackpad and keyboard don't work. Has anyone had this problem before? It would be super to be able to walk away from the laptop instead of turning it off.

USB Mapping help

USB Mapping help

Hey hackers,

Post-install troubleshooting my fully functional Hac (except for sidecar) - OC 0.5.8 - Catalina 10.15.5 with smbios MacPro 7,1.

Want to finalize this build with USB mapping. After going through the guide- I have done the following:

  • USBInjectAll under both EFI/OC/Kexts and config.plist -> Kernel -> Add
  • config.plist -> Kernel -> Quirks -> XhciPortLimit -> True
  • config.plist -> ACPI -> Patch -> EHCI and XHCI ACPI renames (did not do due to MacPro7,1)
  • identified the following usb ports through Hackintool and attaching usb 2.0 and 3.0 devices.
    • Is it possible I'm missing some USBs? And by this I mean, is there a chance even with plugging in usb into all known ports that I am still not identifying some internal ones (i.e. like the wifi and aura ones?)

Is it possible to upgrade from 10.15.4 to 10.15.5 with a 5700XT/Navi?

I'm running into what seems to a known issue of a crash on the second restart of the 10.15.4 to 10.15.5 upgrade. I'm using a 5700XT as my main card and I'm not using RadeonBoost.kext

My Specs are:

Intel i9600k Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Gigabyte Titan Ridge Thunderbolt Card MSI Gaming X 5700XT Opencore 0.58

I've seen threads where people run into the same issues as me:

I've also seen at least one comment of someone with a 5700XT upgrading without issue:

Apparently this is a fairly well known issue but it definitely took me a bit of searching to find even that one failure post.

So is it possible to upgrade at all? Am I missing something obvious?

Vanilla/Open-Core guide for Z390 Designare?

I'm getting ready to build a hackintosh with this motherboard. While the tonymacx86 guides are quite comprehensive, I'm wondering if a cleaner vanilla guide exists anywhere else? The tonymac stuff uses quite a bit of their custom tooling and patched files and it's a lot to sift through...

VDA on RX580

I just discovered my computer has a problem. When using boot-arg "shikigva = 128 and shiki-id = Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94" to turn on acceleration for vga rx580, the GB5 score is 31k. While not using the other two boot-args, the GB5 score is 46k, and of course it will lose acceleration.

How should I handle this problem? if you can turn on full acceleration and the GB5 score is not too much difference (up to more than 10k points), it is still great.

My first try with OC Hackintosh...

My first try with OC Hackintosh...


I have 2+ years experience with Hackintosh, having built one using Clover. After the Mojave update and loss of support for NVIDIA graphics I put the project on hiatus for 1 year.

After finding this Reddit and Open Core I decided to start from scratch.

I followed the instructions from the Vanilla OC Desktop Guide
The EFI Partition on my install USB thumbdrive looks like this:

When I start the installation from the USB thumbdrive this shows up:

Then this:

And the process stops right there. Anyone else has had this problem? Is there a file I am missing in my EFI/OC folders?

My machine's specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5 6500 @ 3.20GHz (Skylake)
RAM: 16.0GB
Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. Z170X-Gaming 5
Graphics: 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (soon to be replaced by a 8GB Radeon RX580)

Thanks in advance.

And, apologies if this post falls outside rules.

X99 Success with Mojave, failure installing Catalina

Hardware/Software used:

  • Asrock Fatality X99m Killer motherboard
  • Intel® Core™ i7-5820K CPU
  • Sapphire Pulse RX580 8GB GPU
  • Samsung EVO 850 SSD 250GB
  • Samsung S24B150 1080p LCD Display
  • Opencore 0.5.8 bootloader.
  • P3.50 BIOS

Initially, I tried installing Catalina(10.15.4) on the above system, but could never get it to install. I had trouble with the initial install because it would hang in the middle of the apple logo while loading the installer, then once it finally loaded neither of the ethernet interfaces would come up. Once i forced an interface to come up and got the first part of the OS installed, the second part would hang on the Country picker( you could scroll through the list of Countries but could not select continue).

After giving up on Catalina I tried installing Mojave, and had the exact opposite experience. It just installed and ran without any issues. I installed several programs, and they all ran fine, watched youtube videos without any problem. I'm very happy with the Mojave install.

Four days later I boot MacOS and it fails with the Prohibited symbol on the screen. Several reboots all withe the same results. I boot with the installer USB, run disk utility to check the disk and it comes up clean. I reinstalled via TimeMachine and everything is working again.

I guess time will tell whether or not this disk failure will be a recurring theme.

One odd thing I've noticed is that my boot device list in my UEFI BIOS/Firmware keeps growing. Everytime I reboot, a new copy of partition 1 of the MacOS disk is added to the boot device list.

Any comments or advice are welcome. Thank you.

Random glitches and lag


This seems to be a persistent issue for quite some time, and I assume it's something ACPI related but I haven't been able to isolate the issue. Symptoms appear randomly from time to time (i.e. once every couple of minutes) and include:

- Mouse suddenly moving faster and without any precision

- Audio drops or artifacts (I have an USB audio card)

- In rare cases, very small video glitches

System Specs:

  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H
  • CPU: Intel i7 4770k
  • GPU: Radeon RX580

Opencore 10.15.4 installer auto updating to 10.15.5??


I had a fully working hackintosh-


Opencore Catalina 10.15.4

  • CPU: i3 8100
  • GPU: UHD 630
  • RAM: 8gb 2666 DDR4 Ram
  • Motherboard: B360 WIFI Gigabyte

Me being silly i accidentally updated to 10.15.5 as soon as it came out (yeah i know i'm a noob) and as expected it broke and stopped working.

So i decided to reinstall back to 10.15.4 with what i knew was a 100% working USB to install it on but for some reason it didnt work.

After days of pulling my hair out installing countless different versions changing kexts etc i finally got the system booted without UHD 630 (running at 7mb) i checked the version and it's 10.15.5 so for some reason it is auto updating to the latest version even though im using a 10.15.4 install. Is there a way around this i am very new to hackintoshing but even after countless hours of research i still cant find the solution.

Hoping someone can help me out on this one it's driving my crazy.

Thanks in advance!

New build for my hackintosh

Hi! I'm going to build my first hackintosh for rendering and graphics in general (blender, keyshot, Adobe pack etc.), I was thinking of Windows dual boot with different ssd. My first option was a Ryzen 5/7 3000 series but I read that cpu and problems with Adobe Pack, so Intel, specifically i7 9700k or 9600k, is the best compromise for me. I ask for the maximum possible stability (ok stability is in relation to the kexts that I inject, but I'm looking for a consolidated build :)) and I'm open to other configurations with other CPUs. The budget is 500€ max 700€ without considering psu, case, monitor and for now gpu (I was thinking of rx 580 8gb). My current configuration is i5 4590, h97m and r9 280x, I tried to create a hackintosh but it was full of problems, I spent 4 days trying to solve many problems but nothing, the bios of h97m is strange there is not everything is need to continue (tips?) and maybe it's not entirely incompatible, so I let it go. That's all! Ah sorry for my bad english!

However, I was trying to install MacOS with opencore, but I kept getting a black screen after this line of text: IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0

- Setting iGPU as default GPU

- adding agdpmod=pikera to launch settings

- plugging another monitor into my motherboard

Unable to boot or update to 10.15.5

Has 10.15.5 broke anything crucial? I had a stable and fully working system on 10.15.4, updated all kexts and Clover before installing the latest update. I couldn't get my system to boot, luckily I had a USB installer on 10.15.1 so I was able to rollback, then tried applying the combo update and same scenario. If I select the update partition in Clover the computer restarts right after showing the loading bar. I have tried booting in verbose + debug=0x100 to get an idea of what's causing it, but it still reboots and I don't see any KP information. Any ideas? Thanks

Clover to OpenCore on my accidental buy of Dell Optiplex 9020 USFF instead of SFF

Clover to OpenCore on my accidental buy of Dell Optiplex 9020 USFF instead of SFF

Supposed to buy a Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF (As advertised) for my homelab cluster. When I went down to collect the item, it was an USFF (Specs were also wrong). I didn't confront the seller as I got it for less than 100USD. I brought it home and thinking what to do with it. Decided to install Hackintosh since I have sold off my 2014 MBP last year.

Took me a week to setup clover in Jan and it was pretty stable. Decided to go OpenCore after reading this sub. I would say it was rather complicated for initial start. Many stuffs to read, but it's good as you understand what you trying to configure. Took me 3 days to finish reading and redo my hackintosh. I would say I enjoyed it. Thanks for the detailed explanation at dortania GitHub and this sub for driving me to use OpenCore.

Looking for one on one support (will pay)

Tl,DR - Looking for someone with a lot of experience successfully building hackintoshes to help me get Catalina working on my machine.

I realize that I'm opening myself up to massive ridicule and criticism, which I'm willing to accept. I'm glad that this is a community of smart, passionate DIYers. The reality is that after having kids I just don't have time to spend hours scouring boards for the solutions to the problems that crop up. And I'd like to work directly with (and communicate directly with someone who knows what they're doing (and can help me trouble shoot).

I have some experience with running hackintoshes (using them since 2012, all tony mac stuff). I'm familiar with making edits using Clover Configurator, and can manage mounting EFIs and copying kexts.

I'd like to get running the latest version of Catalina running, 10.15.5, or if it's better 10.15.4

Here's my hardware:

  • i9 9900k
  • z390 Aorus Pro
  • XFX RX 580 (which I understand might be an issue with Catalina - I'm running two displays using display port and DVI with it). It was working fine with Mojave, but if I new card is necessary then I'll make it happen.
  • Would like headless iGPU working so that I can sidecar with my iPad
  • 64GB (4x16gb of RAM) - Vengeance LPX 64GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16
  • Samsung 860NVMe 500GB for OS (though I also have a 2TB Samsung 970 EVO plus for video work, I understand that there might need to be a firmware update for the 970)
  • I have an 850 watt power supply
  • I have an OEM equivalent wifi-bluetooth card which should work out of box - it was finicky with Mojave. Bluetooth worked well, but unlock with apple watch didn't work well - would be nice to have that working with Catalina.
  • I'm running 6 hard drives using SoftRAID - I'm pretty sure I can handle getting the softraid to work with OSX, it usually just involves disabling scanning entries
  • I have a fractal design R6 case with a USB-C port on the front that I need working.
  • I want an SSDT for the motherboard so that all USB ports are working properly at full speed.
  • I'd like the install to be as vanilla as possible so that I don't end up breaking it when updating (which is what happened when I tried updating to the most recent version of mojave).

If you're interested in helping me get things working send me a quote for how much you would charge. And if you also have a username on Tonymac send that along as well. I'd really appreciate working with someone who is extremely familiar with this and will be able to quickly troubleshoot things.

Thanks everyone!

'Anonymous' Hacktivist Group Threatens To Expose Crimes of Minneapolis Police

The group of hackers known as "Anonymous" has threatened to expose the many crimes of the Minneapolis Police. According to Forbes' latest report, the hacktivist group has surfaced in an unsurprising move to add its voice to those people criticizing the Minneapolis Police Department after the death of George Floyd on May 25 which involved members of their Department. 

Interesting update in OC changelog: "Added prebuilt version of CrScreenshotDxe driver."

For those who haven't used CrScreenshot, it's a UEFI DXE from Nikolaj Schlej that takes screenshots from any GOP device and saves them to a writable FS (must be FAT32). It will make getting pre-OS grabs much, much easier. The prebuilt version included with OC 0.5.9 also changes the hotkey from the rather awkward default (LCtrl + LAlt + F12) to a simple F10.


This DXE driver tries to register keyboard shortcut (F10) handler for all text input devices. The handler tries to find a writable FS preferring OpenCore root if available, finds primary GOP device, takes screenshot from it and saves the result as PNG files on that writable FS.

The main goal is to be able to make BIOS Setup screenshots for systems without serial console redirection support, but it can also be used to take screenshot from UEFI shell, UEFI apps and UEFI bootloaders.

To start the driver, you can either:

Install the driver via OpenCore

Integrate it into DXE volume of your UEFI firmware using UEFITool or any other suitable software (don't forget a DepEx section to prevent too early start)

Add it to an OptionROM of a PCIe device (will try it once I have a device needed)

Let BDS dispatcher load it by copying it to ESP and creating a DriverXXXX variable

Load it from UEFI Shell with load command


It's a normal EDK2-compatible DXE driver, just add it to your package's DSC file to include in the build process.

Usage Load the driver, insert FAT32-formatted USB drive and press F10 to take screenshots from primary graphic console available at the moment.

To indicate it's status, the driver shows a small colored rectangle in top-left corner of the screen for half a second.

Rectangle color codes:

  • Yellow - no writable FS found, screenshot is not taken
  • Red - something went wrong, screenshot is not taken
  • Green - screnshot taken and saved to PNG file

Can someone please explain what this is? And how do I fix this?

Can someone please explain what this is? And how do I fix this?

I keep getting this whenever I boot into Catalina from both Clover(current) and OpenCore. The system however boots and works just fine. I also keep getting ACPI errors. This is my config.plist:

My system is ThinkPad E430 with i5-3210M. Any help is appreciated.

A320M, Athlon 200Ge Catalina issue

Hi guys,

Trying the hackintosh setup after a while, I built a cheap budget pc for the same.

I followed the vanilla AMD guide, I am able to get the installer to start, but the M2 SSD is not detected in disk utility. I have a WD Blue 250gb M2 ssd which is completely new , its detected correctly in the bios, but not by the OS Installer

Motherborad : msi A320M-A PRO MAX

Graphics card: Zotac GT710

CPU: Athlon 200GE

Would appreciate any pointers

Flashing red screen using opengl

I have the strangest issue with my graphics. I cannot run anything using opengl without a flashing red and black screen.

Seizure warning:

This is what happens when I am doing any work with opengl.

I have this problem no matter the programming language used, but the fastest way to reproduce it is with Go.

Install Homebrew
Install GoLang
Run the example here

Graphics: Gigabyte Radeon Rx Vega 56 Gaming OC 8G Graphic Card
Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming

Really confused about compiling my own GPI0 SSDT.

I've been following the OpenCore guide, but this part has went over my head. I compiled and decompiled the DSDT or whatever, I've found the part about the GPHD == zero, I've downloaded the SSDT-GPI0.dsl, and I'm just lost as to what I'm supposed to actually edit so I can recompile.

What obvious information am I missing here?

First Hackintosh Build Components

Hi Guys,

Building my first PC after a very long time and looking to build a hackintosh to retire my old iMac workhorse that’s getting a bit long in the tooth.

Can you please make recommendations of any component changes that would make this build better? Thanks!
