I've got my Hackintosh running just fine now, but it's not got the latest Gigabyte BIOS update. The docs on the update don't mention anything super important or compelling.
Has anyone done this update? Necessary? Worth it?
A long slow slog of troubleshooting the Quartz Extreme and audio driver problems this weekend. I've learned a HUGE amount about Clover Configurator and how Clover works. Thanks to @RehabMan I realized that my installed clover was using an EFI partition that was NOT on my boot drive, so 2 days of...
OK this is sort of a big help.
Is it possible for the system on one drive to be using the EFI partition of another drive to boot? Assuming so, I've removed all other drives, selected the remaining one in the BIOS, and now it boots to a blank Clover Boot Manager screen with no drives that show...
This should look familiar. You were helping a bit in another thread.
I know Power management is also not working. I don't know how to fix it. Every thread about it talks about laptops or other motherboards or not Sierra.
In that other thread you said "- your config.plist is default from Clover...
Especially if you're now using Sierra, could you please share your config? I'm having terrible trouble with exactly the same motherboard. No Quartz Extreme is the problem. I don't have the menu glitch. This is on my Indigo Sawtooth.
This is my Indigo Sawtooth I'm talking about.
I've clean installed. I've used Multibeast and not used MultiBeast, instead adding kexts by hand. Using latest Clover.
I've tried about 8 different config.plists provided by various people. These include changing several different platform IDs.
I've searched the forums and there are a dozen guides, but none of them for my system/processor/OS.
Can anyone point me to instructions for how to get power management working on my Indigo Sawtooth?
SO much of getting my first hackintosh running was way easier than I expected, but this last...
But ignoring the problem, or suffering with it, doesn't make it better.
I mean--I didn't even KNOW I didn't have power management enabled. Heck, I've looked at the Clover Wiki. I wanted to use it.
I've been a Mac guy since there were Macs. Trying to get this "straight by...
OK, used Clover Configurator to make what I think are the changes required. I feel like a layman who has just been instructed to "just replace that atrial valve in that guy's heart". He's not dead, (the hackintosh booted back up) but it seems like pure luck that he isn't, and also, he's not any...
...I'd just like to say:
I've been a paid Mac tech since 1998.
Trying my first Hackintosh. Gotta use Clover Configurator to get graphics working right.
"Check your Custom Entry -> Settings field in your config.plist
Settings=special mean a file special.plist which is the same as...
I got told by a helpful person to search for this.
800 results, all with partial info, many that make reference to systems I'm not on, Haswell not Skylake for example, make references to options without explaining where those options are, etc.
Can anyone explain it to me?
Ok, thanks for the start here. It leaves me with very specific questions, rather than just being without an idea:
Please explain in more detail what "the main Clover screen" is. I tried what I thought it was to no effect.
How do I implement power management?
What platform should I inject? And...
OK, here it is. The only part I had questions about is quoted below. F4 when? what's the "Main" screen? I rebooted & at the clover disk selection screen hit F4, to no effect.
I mounted my EFI and copied the CLOVER folder, removing themes.
Thanks in advance!
Good news: What I thought would be my last parts arrived.
Bad news: Looks like the ICYDOCK hot swap 5.25 drive rack I ordered won't fit unless I cut the original drive holder aluminum or rig up some other mounts for it, and maybe even then. What I really think I need is a right angle adapter...
