Removing everything and starting over with no access.

I installed a successful 10.12 on my computer but ran into issues with it restarting after prompting shutdown.

I followed a guide on a forum and after adding some kext files my Mac partition loads the motherboard screen then shows a bunch of +++++++++++. Is there a way to wipe everything and start over without getting into the system? Any option from clover other than windows locks up.

HELP Building a Powerful / Quiet Hackintosh

Hello all,

I'm a narrator and I'm looking to upgrade my current MacBook Pro into a Hackintosh for audio editing (also able to play games as well if possible.)

My goal here is to find something essentially extremely quiet (my current mac gets up to 4000 RPM's while recording sometimes), that can run Adobe Audition or Pro Tools recording for multiple hours. I use an Apollo and my space is completely acoustically treated, it's much more comfortable than an isolation booth and why I'd rather invest in the best unit to allow me to move to and from my work stations as quickly as possible, as my acoustics are pretty much perfect. Unfortunately, that means keeping the unit in the same room (since there is only one room). I know Bequiet Fans are an option as well as Fractal Define Case but would love help on other options as well as the CPU, GPU, Motherboard, etc.

Can anyone provide suggestions with various price points involved (Middle of the road and more Expensive). I would love any and all insights you might have on my venture here to eliminate fan noise from recordings with also having a powerful computer.

Thanks and best regards,

Does anyone else feel like they shouldn't use Hackintosh as their main setup? (Unwarranted concern/feeling) What are the long term cons of Ryzentosh?

This might sound a bit strange, so I'll preface this by saying that.

I have Windows on my main computer (3900x / 5700xt) and dual booted with Catalina (OC). MacOS feels smooth and runs super well! Everything works except handoff , airdrop etc; (I don't have Wifi Card installed). But I can't help but feel I shouldn't dive in and use the hackintosh as my main OS due to it not being "official". I guess the feeling comes as if I won't have the full performance or something, I'm not sure. Or as if there is a downside I am not seeing yet, I just stay away from using it as a main OS.

As strange as this may be, I guess I wanted to ask, is there any long term (or short term) cons or annoyances to stop me from using it as the main OS? Should I dive in and be happy with it as I much prefer MacOS (I have Macbook, ATV, iPad Pro, iPhone, Apple Watch etc;). I am using AMD 3900X although it seems to work flawlessly in regular use (haven't really tested performance apps).

Is there a noticeable performance hit in some apps like Adobe suite? I've heard LR doesnt work, but it seems to work for me.

Also am I a bit insane for my thinking? haha

Please help me dive into Hackintosh and enjoy the hard work of this awesome community!!

Also for those who dual boot, when do you tend to switch back to Windows? What for?

[Question] Can I install MacOS to a bootable USB

I currently have a hackintosh MacOS Mojave on an old clunker pc setup in my shed, so every time I’d like to jailbreak my phone/iPad I have to go all the way out there and boot it up. I was wondering if I’d be able to get a working OS on a USB I could use on my setup inside and could carry it with me. Thanks in advance and sorry about my stupidity, I’m new to hackintosh so I don’t quite know the do’s or dont’s.

Question about booting hackintosh drive from a real mac

I apologize if this is more clearly spelled out somewhere online and I just didn't find it, but I'm wondering the following:

  1. If I create a clone of a hackintosh drive (using CCC or something similar), and remove any EFI folder from the clone, can I safely boot this from a real mac? From what I've read, the answer is yes, but I'm hoping to confirm that, as the posts I found are sort of old. There are some mentions of bricking a system if this isn't done properly, and that would be not so great...
  2. If the above is possible, is it really just as simple as deleting the EFI partition from the hack drive, and plugging it into any mac (compatible with the os installed on the drive), or are there other checks or things to do to make sure the real mac won't be bricked?

In case it's helpful, I'm running Mojave 10.14.6 using OpenCore 0.5.9, with the following hardware:

Gigabyte Vision D z490

Core i7-10700k

iMac 19,1

My sense is as long as I remove all traces of the EFI, it should boot from any real mac... Right?

Laptop always gets a bit warm in macOS

As the title says, my laptop gets quite warm in macOS, to the point that it's uncomfortable to touch. From what I understand, this happens because the fans get "limited" (i.e. they don't get allowed to spin at the speed they spin at in Windows). The fans are quiet in macOS, too. If my laptop gets very lot, then they'll spin faster ("normally").

Any way to fix this?

Gutting an old build for a new build and questions/recommendations for AMD.

So I'm currently running a hybrid Mac/windows machine thanks to this sub and I'm looking to upgrade it to an AMD machine for better performance with video editing in Premiere and After Effects.

My current setup is an i5 6500, H110I Pro board, 16 GB of 2133 DDR4 RAM, and a Radeon RX 480 8 GB video card. I'm also running 2 27" 4k Acer monitors.

I'm planning on keeping the video card because I'm not having any performance issues there and I'm trying to save some money. I think I'll bump the RAM up to 32 and maybe 64 down the road and I'm looking for more cores in the CPU than the 4 on the i5 I have now. I mostly use this for video work and some light gaming (on Windows). I'm not doing super heavy lifting in video editing (mostly just short films shot in 4k RAW and very occasionally 6k), and when I need really big stuff done it usually gets shipped out to someone else. I do work with basic correction and some light grading and need to be able to handle that, but I'm not rendering big CGI stuff or anything along those lines.

To any AMD hackintoshers out there, what boards and chips have you had the easiest time working with and getting setup? I was smart enough to get my current system up and running but it was not easy.

I'm trying to keep my costs somewhat low, which is why I'm looking at AMD over intel (more cores for your buck). Also, size isn't really an issue. I like the mini tower I have now and its pretty cool looking but I'm more interested in spending money on components than style.

Last question- any ideas on what to do with an old i5, board, and RAM? I have an old 2 GB video card here somewhere. I don't really need an extra PC but I hate having old stuff laying around and collecting dust. Is eBay worth the trouble or is there some cool project I can put it towards?

Easy way to copy your Big Sur image from Parallels or VMware!

I used this article to install Big Sure in both Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion! There were two techniques given for Parallels. I tried them both. The second technique was easier and less hassle.

After fiddling with the tricks I could find to copy the Virtual images to USB drives, I fell upon this little secret! QMEU! Yes! It's so easy!

Install QMEU:

brew install qemu 

Yep! That's it! Now you've got the great little utility qemu-img!

For VMware Fusion find your Virtual Disk.vmdk file (My thumb drive was disk4):

diskutil umountDisk disk4 qemu-img convert ~/Virtual\ Machines.localized/Path/To/Virtual\ Disk.vmdk -O raw /dev/disk4 

And for Parallels Desktop find your hds file hidden within your hdd package:

diskutil umountDisk disk4 sudo qemu-img convert ~/Parallels/macOS 11.0.pvm/macos.hdd/macos.hdd.0.\{5fbaabe3-6958-40ff-92a7-860e329aab41\}.hds -O raw /dev/disk4 

This technique does leave unused space after the image on your drive. I wasn't comfortable using Mojave's Disk Utility to expand the APFS Container, since it doesn't recognize the new filesystem used for Big Sur's boot partition. Also, Big Sur's Recovery isn't bootable at all! I ended up installing Big Sur on two drives and used each to expand the other with Disk Utility.

Now… Let's see if I can install Big Sur into a QEMU machine! I doubt it!

PS\2 Trackpad Issues (Possibly DSDT), No USB Signal, No Ethernet, Blacklisted Wi-Fi Chip

Martin Luther's got nothing on me...


  • General - Toshiba Satellite C655-S5514 Laptop with stock V000225020 board and Sandy Bridge chipset
  • CPU - Intel Pentium B960 2.2GHz Sandy Bridge on 988B rPGA
  • GPU - Intel HD Graphics 8086:106
  • Install method - OpenCore 0.5.9 on USB with DuetPkg UEFI emulation

The system boots fine (better than expected) with DuetPkg into OpenCore, and easily loads the macOS recovery image. I quickly found I couldn't click anything, but I was able to move my cursor, and all keys worked (Tested in Terminal after learning a lot of keyboard shortcuts). My laptop uses a Synaptic PS/2 Port TouchPad with mouse buttons that interface with buttons directly on the board itself, separating it into two different units. For this reason, I think that the "click" buttons are on a different bus than the trackpad itself and therefore are not being read. This is further supported by the fact that I couldn't find the GPIO device mentioned here in my DSDT, only the following even closely resembled what I thought I was looking for:

 Device (KBC) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0303") /* IBM Enhanced Keyboard (101/102-key, PS/2 Mouse) */) // _HID: Hardware ID Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate () // _CRS: Current Resource Settings { IO (Decode16, 0x0060, // Range Minimum 0x0060, // Range Maximum 0x01, // Alignment 0x01, // Length ) IO (Decode16, 0x0064, // Range Minimum 0x0064, // Range Maximum 0x01, // Alignment 0x01, // Length ) IRQ (Edge, ActiveHigh, Exclusive, ) {1} }) 


 Device (MOUE) { Method (_HID, 0, NotSerialized) // _HID: Hardware ID { Return (0x0001F351) } Name (_CID, Package (0x03) // _CID: Compatible ID { EisaId ("SYN1900"), EisaId ("SYN0002"), EisaId ("PNP0F13") /* PS/2 Mouse */ }) Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate () // _CRS: Current Resource Settings { IRQ (Edge, ActiveHigh, Exclusive, ) {12} }) 

(If necessary I'll attach my full DSDT.)

On to problem 2: USB. Notice that I said USB signal, it seems that I get power from the USB ports just fine. However, attempts to connect external mice and flash drives were in vain. I've tried loading both with and without the OpenUsbKbDxe.efi driver. I'm mostly clueless here, but I am wondering if the USB ports are related to the trackpad, or to...

Problem 3 - Ethernet. I have a Qualcomm Atheros AR8152 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller for my Ethernet adapter, which is not recognized at all by macOS and AirPortAtheros40.kext did not help. I found some kexts through googling, but I was a little skeptical of where I was finding them and wanted to see what others might think I should use.

Problem 4 - Blacklisted WiFi Cards. I figured I'd probably need to get a new card or scour the internet for kexts, but this post confirmed that my card has absolutely zero support. So, I checked the guide for new cards I could buy. I noticed I fell under the Toshiba category, meaning Toshiba may have locked down my BIOS, prohibiting me from even booting with a non-Toshiba-approved card. I'm curious about the process so I'll mod my BIOS if that's what it takes, but does anybody have a safe alternative I should consider first?

If anybody could help me with any of this, I'd greatly appreciate it! My apologies if I've missed something blatantly obvious. Thank you!
