Mac OS X 10.10 Testers Needed

About:

I am looking for current x79 users who are testing Mac OS X 10.10. I have the files needed to enable full support under Mac OS X but I need a handful of testers to verify that these files work on there systems. Please reply here if you are interested. If I get enough users willing to test I will add it to the BETA folder on the x79 DMG.

These files will address Power Management under Mac OS X 10.10 as this is the only outstanding issue for most users at this time.

Also to clarify that if you have a Gigabyte x79 board your board does not support Power Management and you can not test these files.

Update: 

Pending any major issues I will be uploading a new x79 DMG tomorrow with the 10.10 files.

x99 DMG Released

About:

Today I am announcing the release of the x99 DMG. Included on the DMG are the SSDT’s and Kexts needed to enable full functionality for a x99 based system. Onboard audio is enabled with the SSDT’s and a Patched AppleHDA as stated by the post here is on the DMG. The AppleHDA is not patched for the codex and must be installed prior to patching it for your codex. HDMI audio will work without issues at this time. Please post a IOreg after installing the new files and SSDT. The DMG can be found up in the Main Bar under x99 DMG.

With this release I would ask for the users of the new DMG to donate to help assist further development of the x99 DMG and other DMG’s as well. I am also looking to sell my main board, CPU and RAM from my x79 system if you or someone you know would be interested so that I can afford to upgrade to a x99 system myself which would assist development.

The goal for this fundraiser is $1000. I have set it high so I can make the necessary changes to improve the site and obtain more hardware to test and debug. You can Donate here. Thank you for your donations.

Funds Raised

$450/$1000

Updates

About:

This upcoming week I will be adding 10.10 support onto the x79 and Haswell DMG. This will allow seamless transition to the new OS once Apple releases 10.10.

Haswell SSDT’s are still being verified. The folders with Gray icons are SSDT’s that are verified. The folders without this mark I still need a IOreg.

x99 DMG will also be released. I have received part of the loner system today and I will receive the remained of the parts on Monday. SSDT development has already been completed and all that is left is Clover configuration.

Last I have been working on updating guides so if you have seen errors and or missing information please post here what needs to be corrected and or added. Thank you.

Mac OS X 10.9.5 Released

About:

Apple has released 10.9.5 today. This updated includes added features to IOS 8 and could be the last major update we see for 10.9. There are no known issues with 10.9.5 regarding Hackintosh’s and should be consider safe to install. Make sure to re-patch your audio with the 10.9.4 patch for the time being.

x99 users please do not update until the kernel is checked.

Update:

For those Nvidia users who are having issues with 10.9.5 we have a working solution. This was only tested on a single GPU configuration. Credit goes to Dank0. Install SMBIOS MacPro 3,1 and can be downloaded here for Chameleon Boot Loader. For clover remove the SMBIOS section for MacPro 6,1 from the Config file and then add this code:

<key>SystemParameters</key>
<dict>
<key>InjectKexts</key>
<string>Detect</string>
<key>InjectSystemID</key>
<true/>
</dict>

Note this is a temporary solution.
