Yosemite on new hardware?

Yosemite on new hardware?

So I recently built my first hackintosh running OpenCore and Catalina on one SSD and Windows 10 on another. I followed the vanilla OpenCore boot guide by Dortania and was able to get up and running pretty easily, so I highly recommend it (a pic of my EFI folder is below).

I was wondering, is it possible to run Yosemite with my hardware or newer generation hardware? I have of course researched the hardware specifications, but as a noob to this, it is all very daunting and I find myself getting confused very easily.

Has anyone had success running Yosemite on new (2020/2021) hardware?


CPU: 3.6 GHz 10-Core Intel Core i9

GPU: Radeon RX 580 8 GB

RAM: 2 x 2666 MHz DDr4 32gB

ProperTree not working on Catalina

ProperTree not working on Catalina

I can not enter my config.plist, I can not put new kext or do absolutely nothing. The same goes for MountEFI

propertree not working on Catalina

the Macintosh mini

Windows boot drive drive gone.

I followed a tutorial on YouTube on how to create a open core Catalina usb, and I wanted to test if it worked so I went into bios, reset to default bios settings, and booted into open core and it worked. But when I wanted to go back into windows and fix a drive I couldn’t boot back into windows, it says reboot and select proper boot drive. Please help!

Newbie asking about Hardware Compatibility

HI! I am planning to build a hackintosh using this hardware

intel 9th gen i3 asus ex-h310m mobo

Would this work for either big sur or catalina?

Also, I currently own a macbook pro 15 2015 so I guess it would be easier right?

Spinning color wheel on Mac OSX High Sierra install - Lenovo Thinkpad T430

I found this guide by u/twobikes and essentially followed it completely - the only difference being that (given the 1600x900 display I used) I substituted the low-res config file for the high-res one. Upon finishing the creation of the USB installer, I inserted it in the laptop and booted to it using BIOS. It displayed a significant amount of error messages, then transitioned to a grey screen. After this the display turned off, and when I turned on the display about one hour later, the spinning color wheel was stuck in the top left corner of the screen. I considered letting it continue to run, but decided that because it had already taken more than two hours, I needed to remove the drive.

What should I do from here ? Has anyone tried this guide or installed MacOS on this laptop? Here are my specs:

  1. Motherboard: Lenovo 2349SST
  2. CPU: Intel Core i5 3320M @ 2.60GHz (Ivy Bridge)
  3. GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 (1600x900 display)

If this process does not work, I am going to move to the vanilla install guide. I had tried it in the past but encountered some errors. If anyone has any suggestions for this situation or additional guides, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Apple services passthrough to linux??

Not sure what subreddit to post this on, but since it is now so easy to run a MacOS VM on linux using Simple MacOS KVM or Sosumi . Why couldn't you run a MacOS VM headless and get things like Imessage, facetime or airdrop running on host (linux) computer?

Or create wine for mac apps?

Just something I have been thinking about. Any thoughts?

Merom processors with OpenCore?

I have this old Dell Latitude D530 with a Core 2 Duo T7250 (Merom) and an Intel GMA X3100. While the Merom processor would theoretically allow me to run anything up to El Capitan, the X3100 with OpenCore only works with Leopard, Snow Leopard, and Lion.

The only problem is that there seems to be a lack of information on the Merom processor family. The guides for SSDTs and the config.plist only seem to target Penryn and up for desktops - for laptops information is targeted for Clarksfield/Arrandale and up. Is there any resource on how OpenCore works with these old Merom machines?

Kernel panic cpu X caller clobbered statistics

Kernel panic cpu X caller clobbered statistics

Hi everyone.

I have an issue when booting my Open Core. I have a kernel panic like this: panic(cpu X caller 0xffffff801c884e0f): "addInterruptStatistics call for index 0 would have clobbered existing statistics"@/BuildRoot/Library/Caches/ is for the cpu number which is different every time.I searched a lot her on Reddit and on the web but I didn't find any way to solve this. I'm joining a screen shot of the panic.

Here is my configuration: Gigabyte Z490 Vision D + Intel i7-10700K - 3,8/5,0 GHz + Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 5700 XT 8Go + Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 2x16Go + SSD Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe 1To + Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 + Gigabyte P850GHM 80 Plus Gold.

Thanks in advance.

Verbose not working

I can't get the verbose mode to show up. I do have "-v" (without quotes) in the boot args. I do hold cmd-v (tried ctrl-v and Winkey-v as I have a PC keyboard), no dice. Always the Apple logo and no verbose output. What gives?

EDIT: Jesus Christ I need to reset NVRAM in order to get the boot args working.

Catalina to Big Sur feat. the Clunkpad

Laptop dgpu

Any amd dgpu on laptops compatible with big sur? And what laptop would fall in that category that they would work?. I did find that the laptops can't have switched mode for the dgpu and igpu.

GPU/VMEM stuck to full speed when 2nd display connected

RX 580/i9 10850k on Asus Z490-p, Big Sur 11.1, OC 0.6.5. When 2nd display is connected (DP or HDMI), there's no power management on the GPU. It's stuck at max frequencies (1340/2000 MHz) at all time. With only one display connected, it downclocks properly up to 300/300. Tried Radeonboost.kext to no avail (it did help with this issue earlier in Catalina).

Any tips?

Is macOS Catalina still good as a daily driver OS in 2021?

I know Big Sur is out but when I installed Big Sur earlier this week it just ended up in a bootloop, so I installed Catalina instead and after some troubles it finally worked. Because of my past experience with Big Sur, I've decided that right now I will stay on Catalina. Is Catalina still alright to use as an OS? Or should I try upgrading to Big Sur?

SUCCESS - Big Sur on Gigabyte H470I Aorus Pro AX (Wifi and Bluetooth work!)


  • Gigabyte H470I Aorus Pro AX LGA1200 mITX Desktop Motherboard
  • Intel i9 10900F CPU
  • ASUS Radeon RX 580 Dual Series OC 8GB Video Card
  • G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB (2x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz
  • Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch
  • Corsair SF750 SFX Platinum Modular 750W Power Supply

Using OpenCore 0.6.5 RELEASE, EFI, and some changes to the config.plist suggested by

I originally installed Catalina which seemed to be working well except for Bluetooth and WiFi so I used HoRNDIS-9.2.2. But on a whim I wiped the drive and installed Big Sur.

After I selected the drive to install it on it kept rebooting and didn't seem to install, but I kept selecting the Big Sur installer until the drive I installed it on appeared in the list. I went through the set up pages and to my surprise it automatically detected my WiFi network. I have not changed the WiFi bluetooth chip on the motherboard.

USB ports work. WiFi and Bluetooth work. I'm not sure what else to test, those are the main hardware things I would be using the most often. But I'm so happy it works!
