5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Requirements :

A 8GB minimum USB drive

An Sierra compatible PC (This guide is more for Intel PCs)

A Virtual Machine/Mac/Working hackintosh

 

[Skip this if you have an Mac/working hackintosh.]Step 0: Creating the virtual machine.

___________________________________________________________

 

Follow one of these guides:

VMWare : https://techsviewer.com/install-macos-sierra-vmware-windows/

VirtualBox : https://techsviewer.com/install-macos-sierra-virtualbox-windows/

 

Step 1: Creating the install media

____________________________________________________________

 

After you setup the Virtual Machine , go to the app store and download macOS Sierra from the App Store. (If for some reason you want to use another version of macOS , you can download some here : https://macarchive.download/Mac%20OS%20X/Mac%20OS%20X/ . Remember that this guide is focused on installing Sierra , I’m not sure if it will work in older versions.) Now open Disk Utility and format the USB as OS X Extended (Journaled) and with the scheme as GUID Partition Map

In Terminal, type diskutil list to find the disk and partition number of your installer media (diskDsP)

diskutil mount diskDsP replacing D with the disk number, and P with the partition number.

Diskutil should now tell you the name of the volume it just mounted, which looks like this: Volume YourVolume on YourVolume mounted

To bootstrap your mounted install media, run sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume  /Volumes/YourVolume --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app" --nointeraction - replacing YourVolume with the name of the volume you mounted earlier.

Now,be patient and wait. Now,when it’s done copying the files over,download this:

https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/cloverefiboot/Installer/Clover_v2.4k_r4035.zip?r=https%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fcloverefiboot%2F&ts=1489324048&use_mirror=freefr

 

Run the file, click continue two times then click on “Change install location” and select your install media,now click on Customise and select these options according to what the BIOS mode is set as:

 

UEFI : 

Install Clover for UEFI booting only

Install Clover to the ESP

Drivers64UEFI

    OsxAptioFix2Drv-64

    PartitionDxe-64

Install RC scripts on target volume

 

Legacy : 

Bootloader > Install boot0af in MBR

Drivers64

    OsxAptioFix2Drv-64

    PartitionDxe-64

Install RC scripts on target volume

 

Go to this page (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BzKFq9zTakqfOUJEVVl4UWw3Z1U) and download FakeSMC , then go to this page (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzClVdL5LZYjYXVidmRFLVJDeUk) and download NullCPUPowerManagment and put those files (make sure they’re extracted) into EFI/EFI/Clover/Kexts/Others.

 

Then , download Clover Configurator here (http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download-mac.php?version=vibrant) and make sure that all the fixes in the Acpi tab are like this: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/244975790456963073/303306380322930699/unknown.png

 

Copy Clover Configurator, Clover , and the kexts to the USB.

 

Now, lets move on to the next step

 

Step 2 : Installing macOS in your PC.

________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

Before booting into the USB, make sure the settings in the BIOS are set to this: 

 

Optimised Defaults loaded;

If your CPU supports VT-d, disable it;

If your system has CFG-Lock , Secure Boot Mode or IO SerialPort, disable it;

Set the OS Type to Other OS;

Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled;

Save and exit.

 

Now boot from your USB and select your install media from the menu.

If you have any problems try to boot with verbose boot. 

 

Now you might see a message box with a list of utilities , choose disk utility.

Erase the disk you want to install Mac OS X as Mac OS X Extended and as GUID Partition Table , just like you did to your install media.

Now click erase, when its done,close the Disk Utility and go on with the installation

After the first phase of the installation is done, reboot and select the USB again.

After the second phase is done,we can move to the next step.

 

Step 3 : Post-Installation 

________________________________________________________________

 

To mount the EFI volume again,do this: In Terminal, type diskutil list to find the disk and partition number of your installer media (diskDsP)

diskutil mount diskDsP replacing D with the disk number, and P with the partition number.

Diskutil should now tell you the name of the volume it just mounted, which looks like this: Volume YourVolume on YourVolume mounted

 

 

Now open Clover again and this time install it on your HDD, click “Customise” and see if the settings are correct. Now put the kexts we put on the USB on the  EFI volume (EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/OTHER)

-How to enable unsupported GPU hardware acceleration-

 

Now we're going to enable GPU hardware acceleration by modifying the config.plist file, first open Clover Configurator. 

If you get a message saying that a config.plist wasn't found, click Mount EFI partition and Mount the EFI partition that has the config.plist in it.

Now open the config.plist (EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist)

Now go to the graphics tab and select one of these options according to your GPU manufacturer .

Now save the config. (CMD/WIN + S)

This seems interesting how Hackintosh allows you to run Intel on non-supported Devices.

But as award: This will be pinned & Locked since it may be helpful ! :)
