Open core screen turns off during install

Hello guys,

I am trying to create a hackintosh on an HP Slim desktop 290-p90. I've been able to go upto opencore selection menu, select macos and view the verbose output, after which instead of showing the installer the screen just goes blank and turns off. I've tried waiting nothing happesns. Also tried the troubleshooting section in opencore guide.

Config.plist sanity checks out, HP specific settings enabled where required.

Any help much appreciated.

Cheap $200 Skylake hack running Big Sur - Dell Optiplex 3040/7040

Cheap $200 Skylake hack running Big Sur - Dell Optiplex 3040/7040

There are a bunch of Dell Optiplex systems available on ebay. You should be able to get a 3040 or 7040 with a Skylake i5-6500 for under $200. These systems are very easy to hack. You can get up and running with OC 0.6.3 and Big Sure in no time. If you can also snag an AMD RX 460 or RX 560, you'll be in very good shape with sleep, 4K, etc. I don't think the power supply can handle a more powerful GPU.

Some tips:

- Try to find a mini-tower, rather than a SFF, so you can fit the RX 560- The 7040 uses DDR4, the 3040 uses DDR3- With an RX 560, sleep works fine. I could not get sleep working with the iGPU.- If you don't care about sleep, you can definitely get your hack running for under $200

Dell Optiplex 3040 with RX 560 running Big Sur

CPU: Intel i5-6500
GPU: AMD RX 560
RAM: 2x4GB DDR3
Motherboard/Laptop Make and Model: Dell Optiplex 3040 Mini Tower
Audio Codec: Realtek HDA Codec ALC3234 (on motherboard)
Ethernet Card: Realtek RTL8111HSD-CG (on motherboard)

iTunes Randomly Plays Music

Due to a horrid accident (my fault) when my hackintosh running Clover and Mojave was booting up, an object dropped on my case and caused some error where one of my HDD holding gigabytes of audio files was corrupted. Tried having someone replace the read/write heads but no long. The drive was lost.

Fast forward a year later and I am now running Opencore and Catalina.

I am in the process of re-ripping all my CDs (yes I am a dinosaur) to MP3 and moving them to a RAID 10 Synology NAS with 4 bays.

Randomly, while importing a CD or updating the artwork, iTunes will randomly start playing songs I have ripped. I go an clear "Playing Next" but it happens again, but this time its a different batch of songs!

Very frustrating and cannot figure out why.

Any ideas?

Apple HDA / AppleALC not working in Bug Sur + Open Core

SPECS:

  • Dev Build Open Core 0.6.4
  • Ryzen 5600x
  • Asus TUF x570 BR
  • RX 560 4gb Biostar (The PC also has a 1080 TI disabled using SSDT)

This onboard audio is compatible with AppleALC alcid=1 as attested by myself and others.

Apple ALC worked sometime in the past in my system. Recently it stopped working. I can only get audio output from my RX 560 now.

If I run kextstat | grep -E "AppleHDA|AppleALC|Lilu" after the system boots, I can see that the 3 kexts are loaded. If I wait for like, 10min after boot, eventually AppleHDA disappear.

Tried to include delay to AppleALC but nothing changed.

Followed this guide but was not helpful:https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Post-Install/universal/audio.html#miscellaneous-issues

Tried to set layout ID using both boot-arg and DeviceProperties ( https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Post-Install/universal/audio.html#making-layout-id-more-permanent )

Hope someone can help me! This is the last part to get a 100% working and stable Ryzentosh!

OBS: Voodoo HDA works with MIC and Headphone jack, but kills my HDMI Audio. I would use Voodoo HDA without problems if it supported my HDMI Audio.

Transition from Clover to OpenCore with Pentium G4560

Hello everybody, I'm running a perfect Catalina Hackintosh with Pentium g4560 and RX580 with everything working perfectly (only exceptions are weird Photoshop glitches and SideCar not working because of the IGPU of Pentium)

I want to transfer everything to OpenCore while upgrading to Big Sur, but so far I've never seen anyone do it with a Kaby Lake Pentium. I've got Clover working with VirtualSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement kexts, but I'm not sure if these will work in this setup. I would be very happy if somebody has a guide for me to follow.

New build, DRM broken on Big Sur

I pretty much finished installing macOS on Ryzen. I thought it was a waste of time when I bought Ryzen few months ago so I didn't bother, but I really missed macOS.

Like on previous hack based on i5-4460 and H81 motherboard, sleep doesn't work (but I can live with that) and DRM was broken since Mojave, at least in Safari. On Ryzen at least I got all USB working and honestly, documentation is so great that it was a breeze compared to Haswell and Clover.

Most important parts are:

ASRock A320M-HDV R3.0

AMD Ryzen 5 1600

ASUS Strix RX570 4GB

HP Z27s

I checked everything accordingly to Vanilla OpenCore Guide. Decoder is working, DRM supposedly as well (trailer of spiderman on amazon plays in safari). I even set shikigva 128 in OpenCore since I'm using iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS (also tried values 80 and 144, didn't change anything). And yet, Netflix plays sound and subtitles but screen remains red on Safari. Playing something on Apple TV+ results in same issue but with green screen instead. Worth noting that trailers on both Netflix and Apple TV+ play fine, so it's surely a DRM issue.

I have two ideas what might be the cause:

  1. WhateverGreen isn't working perfectly with Big Sur just yet
  2. My monitor is 4K, but doesn't support HDCP2.2 required to play 4K content

In theory if my monitor is an issue, then it should just scale the resolution down to 1080p (it worked back in High Sierra days). But even older titles on Netflix that doesn't have 4K are having issues. I can check with newer monitor that supports HDCP2.2 but it would be a pain in the butt to move the computer (but probably will do tomorrow).

Any other ideas maybe?

Purchase List - Any advice or suggestions?

Hey everyone,

I'm planning on building a machine to replace my Mid-2015 Macbook Pro, this will be my first Hackintosh.

I'll be using this as a audio mixing/recording workstation. I have some older firewire audio gear that I use for now, hence the Vision D Motherboard w/Thunderbolt3. Any suggestions or recommendations based on my list? I'll be installing Catalina (to start).

Should I maybe wait until the 6800xt's are available and fully supported on Big Sur? I plan on dual booting and running some games as well. I was also wanting to switch to two 970 Evo Plus SSD's, but a friend advised me against it as he says it can be less reliable than the regular 970.

Intel Core i9-10900K

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z490 VISION D

Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury 64 GB DDR4-3200 CL16

Storage: 2x Samsung 970 Evo 1TB + 2x WD Black 4 TB

Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB NITRO+

PSU: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Platinum 750W

Case: Fractal Meshify S2 White-TG E-ATX

Wireless Network Adapter: fenvi FV-T919 (I will be mostly hardwired though)

Thanks! This community has been super helpful so far!

Hello greetings to all I hope you are well

First of all he mentioned the BUILD descriptions

Cooler AMD Wraith Prism RGB

GPU RX 580

RAM 8gb x 2 XGP GAMMIX D10

WIFI FENVI T919 BCM94360CD

I have problems with bluetooth, Which is apparently causing conflict with the onboard

The strange thing is that it worked for me the first time I connected the pci dapter (It worked natively and as expected)

This is the last part that I have left to be able to have it fully functional o_O

FENVI T919 BCM94360CD It has no Hardware problem, it was tested on my Win 10 dualboot and it works perfectly

Then reboot and it didn't work again I have tried to remap USB, But without success

OnBoard Bluetooth use USB Port PTR4 BRCM20702 Hub use USB Port PO14 / PO9 (I already tried to change the cable to another usb Connection )

I have already tried: Remove the wireless card onboard ( Disable USB ports PTR4, PTR3, PTR5 etc

But I still don't get this to work properly (I just learned how to perform and not very well)

I've already run out of ideas and what else to do:cry: I hope someone can help me solve this problem

EFI FOLDER EFI

I have used the following guides Guide 1

Guide 2

Removing the XHC0 controller with killXHC0.kext

But I still can't get the bluetooth to work or be recognized

As I had already commented on the PTR4 port It is the one that controls the internal bluetooth I have also disabled the wi-fi card from the bios

Now it tells me as if a Bluetooth device were not present

The USB dongle T919 (BRCM20702 Hub) is connected to the PO14 port

I still can't find How to make it work

It is the only thing that I still do not understand. How is it that the first time I connected it, it worked and now it doesn't

Already tried to remapping, But I think I don't understand it much or I don't do it the right way

Dell T7810 How to disable CFG Lock

Dell T7810 How to disable CFG Lock

Opencore 0.6.3 allows you to work around CFG lock by giving you these values AppleXcpmCfgLock and AppleCpuPmCfgLock in Kernel > Quirks. However, the community seem to think this might cause instability issues so you might want to disable this CFG Lock in your BIOS and set those values to false

https://preview.redd.it/1a2v0fxqsb261.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=53c0d103929247ac510f4e7e3bde7b1f440074ca

I used the following guides to help me disable CFG lock on my Dell T7810. There is no one guide that works on this machine so I had to get all my clues from multiple guides

First, I looked at this Dortania guidehttps://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Post-Install/misc/msr-lock.html

However, it hints that it doesnt work on Dell, it provides a link to a guide for Dell called dreamwhite’s guide

https://github.com/dreamwhite/bios-extraction-guide/tree/master/Dell

Finally I used some clue from this Reddit post as well

https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/hz2rtm/cfg_lockunlocking_alternative_method/

So far, we have 3 places: Dortania, dreamwhite, and Reddit

At a high level, you need to do these 2 steps in order to disable your CFG Lock:

  1. Get the memory location of the value that points to CFG Lock in your BIOS
  2. Change that value from enabled to disabled

You need to know these 2 steps at high level to make this work. It allows you to fill in the gap if my instruction is missing something.

For example: I dont cover installing python here but as long as you know where you are at in the high level overview, you should not get lost.

Get the memory location of the value that points to CFG Lock in your BIOS

I used the dreamwhite’s guide but I ran into an issue at the very first step there. When I run this command in Ubuntu, I get some kind of error about DOCTYPE. Like it could not parse some html file

python3 Dell_PFS_Extract.py <BIOS_UPGRADE.EXE>

I realize now that I can use that python script in Windows and Mac successfully. I can also extract the exe file in Windows using an app called 7-Zip

Once extracted, theres a bunch of files, one of them should have a name that tells you its modifying System BIOS. In my case, mine is named 1- 1 System BIOS vA.27.bin. I know its important because its 8MB while the other files are smaller. (One other file is 9MB but it has something to do with Intel Management Engine so its not relevant)

https://preview.redd.it/gcr2auossb261.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=ced19b8af8f2f8c3fa1d202a9c35372a377e0634

All the 3 guides above say you need to run UEFITool, so download and run that. Open the .bin file I referenced above.

Go to menu Action > Search

All other guides say to search for “CFG Lock” but for our BIOS, we will search for “MSR Lock”. For me, I got something like this:

Unicode text "MSR Lock" in Compressed section/PE32 image section at header-offset 76B18h

https://preview.redd.it/kd6o4uplsb261.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=2ce796a358250ef601291e80d6003125f19f217b

Double click on that string, it should expand the structure of the BIOS. It should tell you that string is located under … Platform > Compressed section > PE32 image section

https://preview.redd.it/0u9nihfnsb261.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=1c3cbe728e1dbc1574af75767b32f7b9c3390653

Right click on “PE32 image section”, then select “extract as is”. Now I get a file named Section_PE32_image_Platform_Platform.sct

In the dreamwhite’s guide, theres a link to a script called IRExtractor. Open that app, load the sct file. Then click on extract. You should get a .txt file

https://preview.redd.it/sto7comxsb261.png?width=339&format=png&auto=webp&s=fca34792bd3902dff5c2782e9772acf9eda17335

Open that text file, search for “MSR Lock” again, you will get something like this

0x36DC8 One Of: MSR Lock Control, VarStoreInfo (VarOffset/VarName): 0x72, VarStore: 0x1, QuestionId: 0xBF9, Size: 1, Min: 0x0, Max 0x1, Step: 0x0 {05 91 7B 11 7C 11 F9 0B 01 00 72 00 10 10 00 01 00}

0x36DD9 One Of Option: Disable, Value (8 bit): 0x0 (default MFG) {09 07 41 0A 20 00 00}

0x36DE0 One Of Option: Enable, Value (8 bit): 0x1 (default) {09 07 40 0A 10 00 01}

https://preview.redd.it/46xupscztb261.png?width=1919&format=png&auto=webp&s=f2c06cfa232383ef4993566b3fca92ddf7cec0eb

Note the VarOffset value of 0x72

Change the CFG lock value from enabled to disabled

The Reddit guide I referenced above points me to a script called RU.efi

Format a small USB drive as FAT32, you can use Rufus on Windows or Disk Utility on MacOS. Create a folder named “EFI”. In the “EFI” folder, create a folder named “BOOT”. Paste the “RU.efi” file into the “BOOT” folder

Boot into the USB drive, you should get a screen like this

https://preview.redd.it/v81xso10tb261.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=2e5f15a75593743530e4ae67f4cfa14a28e4926c

Press “ALT” and “=” to get to this screen

https://preview.redd.it/7d3tai91tb261.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=7592fb8505a89852c18349b9cfedde27c4212bff

Hit the down arrow key until you find IntelSetup. Note, other guides might say CPUSetup. Hit ENTER

https://preview.redd.it/uuauk0o2tb261.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=7d198d2fb3a93c0b8c2dc33534ddcf55a4d843b8

Now, my offset value is 0x72, yours might be different. To locate this value, i navigate to 0070 for the 7 part of 0x72. Then I go to 02 for the 2 part of 0x72

https://preview.redd.it/xrg5sl45tb261.png?width=1514&format=png&auto=webp&s=09e9581924753f566746890412e64b7db409d458

Change value 1 (enabled) to 0 (disabled).

Press Ctrl + W to save

Press Alt + Q to quit

Now you can boot into MacOS with AppleXcpmCfgLock and AppleCpuPmCfgLock to false

Note if you reset your BIOS setting, this value will be reset as well

RAM speed quirks

Hello, I'm running an HP-z620 hackintosh, Xeon 2643v1 3.3ghz 32 gb (8x4) ddr3-1866. C602 chipset.

My mobo/cpu combo should only get 1600 out if these dimms, and BIOS /Win10 shows 1600, but everything in macOs says 1866.

Also, I discovered this with a different memory stick. I have a 32g (1x) lrdimm rated 1600, which registers in Windows 10 and BIOS at 1333... And shows it as a 1600 mhz lrdimm in macOs. Same essential 'boost', or step up displayed.

I'm running high seirra, I haven't checked my catalina install, as I don't really use it.

My questions : Is this typical of macOs to get the RAM speed wrong in Hackintoshes? Is it actually running faster? Is there a Mac utility like z-gpu to look deeper? Geekbench doesn't show speed.

I plan on building an almost duplicate machine to this one so any info or peace of mind on the discrepancies I described would be appreciated.

I'm having no issues, mind you, just kinda driving me batty.

Black screen after OpenCore IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3

Hi, I made a thread about this a couple months ago but got like no answers,

I have a 7700k, igpu, and a msi z270 Gaming m5, I have tried over the course of 8-9 months to get open core working on Catalina, (Currently on Mojave 10.14.6 Clover working wonderfully)

New NVME SSD coming in soon, and I want to install OC on it instead of clover, but the issue is no matter what I always get a black screen after IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3.

After about half an hour or so of waiting, the computer sleeps, so I assume that it loads everything as people have said this is a GPU issue.

Interestingly, I tried using the latest version of WhateverGreen on my clover setup, and encountered the same problem, only fixing it by reverting to an older version, (of course the older version doesnt work on catalina) so no idea whats going on.

Also, if you have a 7700k on igpu, could u share your OC EFI folder, no one with one has shared it yet and id like to see how other people are dealing with this problem.

EDIT: Just like this guys problem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_UD5QxG1cs But with different hardware

But now I can’t boot in macOS (it just shows the apple logo) or windows (just boot loops) so I was hoping I could edit the config to delete the added values about cpufriend?

Any help would be great

Thanks!

Anymore advantage in terms of price and performance?

As you've all heard, M1 is killing it. In the past the reason for putting together a hackintosh was because of price and performance. I myself have been building hackintoshes for the past 10 years for this very reason. My current setup is an 8700k with 32GB of RAM etc. etc. But as I was lugging around this gigantic heavy rig I just realized that the new Mac mini is significantly cheaper, and, if the reviews are to be believed, would blow my not so cheap setup put of the water, with much less weight to boot.

I think the most likely scenario would be for me to replace my dinosaur with a mac mini (m2?) once all the software I need for it (resolve, Lightroom) has been ported over. I don't think Intel or AMD would be able to catch up to ARM's architecture anymore. Thoughts?
