Trouble with volume formatting.

Hey guys, I'm trying to install hackintosh High Sierra and I'm running into a problem. When formatting disks, following Dortania's guide, I select MacOS Extended (Journaled), then during installation, the disk turns gray and the error "This volume is not formatted as APFS" appears. Ok, I format the disk in APFS, but then the reverse error follows "This volume is not formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

macOS High Sierra on a Xeon

Intel wifi chipset support?

Dotriana's guide mentions that "great work has been done" on Intel wifi. Does that mean that it is possible to have an intelwifi module and owking wifi on hackintosh? Or is this something for the future? For refernce, I have a HP Pavillion with an i3 1005g1 (same cpu as 2020 intel macbook air) and my wifi card is an Intel 9461.

gaming laptop issue with hdmi

Hello everyone,
I'm going to buy a gaming laptop and I will install Hackintosh on it, all that I know is the latest 10th generation Intel gaming laptop available in my country right now is wired the Nvidia card to HDMI directly so it won't work also USB Type c
and using a second screen is helping me a lot so is there another solution instead of HDMI?

for example Asus TUF f15, Asus Strix g15

thanks for helping

LG Ultrafine 5k with Lenovo Legion Slim 7 AMD Ryzen Laptop?

I have the LG Ultrafine 5k (the model that you can use with iPad Pros, so I believe this is the latest one).

I picked up an Lenovo Legion Slim 7 AMD Ryzen laptop and am trying to connect it to the monitor. I only get audio and access to any peripherals connected to the monitor, but the computer cannot recognize that a display is being connected. Any advice?

Will Tiger Lake theoretically work with an external discrete GPU via M.2?

As in title. Have been on OpenCore until I got upgraded to a Tiger Lake laptop.

I am planning on buying a Big Navi GPU and connecting it to the M.2 slot on my laptop via ADT-Link R43SG 4.0 (one of the few PCIe x16 to M.2 adapters). I am quite confident the CPU itself will be supported by spoofing as Ice Lake, but I am skeptical whether OpenCore would recognize the M.2-connected GPU.

From research, it seems an "internal" external GPU via M.2 would be better in compatibility than a TB3.

OpenCore .8, does not see macOS partition?

I have a rather odd issue? I am working on building Hackintoshes from 2 identical Lenovo T460s. One is up 100% and running fine w/o issue. I pulled a drive from a previous build that used Clover, did a 100% wipe of it from Disk Utility. Then cloned the working machine’s drive to the drive I just wiped as well as the EFI from the working T460. Starting up from a known working OpenCore USB drive as well as letting the OpenCore EFI on the drive also does not see the macOS partition.

My hunch is there was a partition that Clover made that couldn’t be seen by Disk Utility?

Thoughts?

Studio Display Update

This is a short PSA post about updating the Studio Display firmware through a compatible Hackintosh: *It will not work*.

I haven't figured out what doesn't work, but it absolutely refuses to update.

Luckily, the Studio Display can be rebooted (unplug the power, wait 5 seconds, plug it back in) and it'll be functional again.

Updating via a real compatible Mac works and the update takes less than 3 minutes to complete. I personally used my M1 Pro Macbook.

If you don't have a real Mac or access to one through a friend or family, avoid installing the update until someone figures out how to do it successfully.

I hope this helps someone.

Are there any EFI changes required for DDR5 vs DDR4?

I've seen some guides about some of the Gigabyte z690 boards. Some of them are for ddr4 though (Gigabyte seems to duplicate their boards in both dd4 and ddr5 flavors). Are there any additional changes required to make a successful build if the same board by gigabyte if a guide is written for ddr4 but I want to go with ddr5 variant?

Can I put hack on this aspire ?

BCM94360CS2 + Windows?

Hi everyone. I recently ordered the above mentioned card for my laptop along with a adapter to make it work on a A/E m.2 slot. It hasn’t arrived yet.

Moving onto the important bit, I have dual boot set up. Windows 11 and Monterey right now. I’ve been using this for the past 6 months but now I want the additional features hence I got that card. But someone told me it doesn’t work on windows. Is that true? Coz then I’m screwed. He said it didn’t work even with bootcamp drivers. Has anyone got a card from an old mac for his Hackintosh and also been able to use that successfully on windows?

Running into an odd boot issue, won't start without AC Adapter

Hi everyone,

CPU: Intel Core i5 2410M Sandy Bridge

GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000

RAM: 8GB Dual Channel DDR3

Motherboard: Lenovo Base Board (40CN30WW)

I completed a vanilla installation of El Capitan on a Lenovo G570, am able to boot into the OS without the USB installer and got most of the important things working and was able to even run updates. Battery is working, shows the percentage and is able to charge. Once booted into the OS I can disconnect the AC Adapter and continue with the battery with no issue.

What part I got an issue with: The problem is that if the computer is shut down and the AC Adapter is not connected, the computer won't even start up. The light for the power button will turn on for a few seconds and then turn off. It won't even start up enough to get to the bios. But once I connect the AC Adapter again (though it takes a few tries pressing the power button) I am able to get back into the OS with no issue.

I have investigated this for some time, I have a secondary battery and ran into the same issue. Both batteries are original to the laptop. I've tried installing Windows 10 and Linux Mint, and did not encounter this same issue with either. I have even done a fresh install of El Capitan with the bare minimum, but cannot figure out what is causing this. I've searched online but don't see any posts relating to this issue. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Unable to set configuration.

I am trying to download bigsur from (Olar1la) and I followed every single step. My laptop is an asus x441u with intel core i3-7100 and 4gb ram with an 250 SSD storage. I am still stuck with this input and it doesn’t seem to move anymore. I have already modified the BIOS Setting but still, it doesn’t work. Anyone know how to fix this?
