    Solved > Attempting to install Mojave, system freezes after first reboot

    I'm attempting to build my second Mojave system, and the PC consistently freezes/locks up when I attempt to boot to the newly installed SSD (still starting the boot from a Unibeast USB installer). There's no mouse cursor, the progress bar never moves, and the system appears completely...

    Confused about different versions of FakeSMC

    I've been using RehabMan's fork of FakeSMC, the monitoring plug-ins, and the (which is forked from kozlek's branch). The version number on is currently 6.26.1440, and the FakeSMC.kext version corresponds, at least the major numbers (it's currently at...

    High Sierra 10.13.2 update changed my CMOS boot device order

    After I updated to HS 10.13.2 using the combo update, my Hack did not boot correctly. After some troubleshooting I discovered that the CMOS boot device order had been changed - the update apparently did this (I certainly didn't!) Has anyone else experienced this issue?

    Garbled image and strange message on Clover boot screen

    Since updating to High Sierra, I get a partially garbled screen and a strange error message on the initial Clover boot screen: Any idea what this is? It seems to be harmless, but it's ugly.

    iCloud login problems

    Since updating to High Sierra, I can no longer login to my iCloud account from my hackintosh. When I go to the iCloud preference panel and attempt to sign in with my Apple ID and password, it silently fails. (not really silently as there are a whole slew of messages dumped to the Console, but I...

    [Solved] KextBeast refuses to update FakeSMC.kext

    I downloaded the latest version of and its associated set of kexts (including FakeSMC.kext), version 6.26.1440, dated Aug. 26, 2017 (because it now has support for Nvidia Pascal graphics cards). I manually deleted the existing "XXXSensors.kext" files from /Library/Extensions, but...

    [Solved] Would AHCI_Intel_Generic_SATA.kext work on Kaby Lake?

    I just noticed that on my new system, the SATA controllers show up as "Generic AHCI Controller". Would installing Drivers -> Disk -> Intel Generic AHCI SATA from Multibeast fix this, or would it cause my system to not boot because it's intended for 9-Series, X79, and X99 motherboards?

    [Solved] Boot Sierra 10.2.6 from Unibeast freezes on new Kaby Lake build

    First of all, I'm starting a new build - it isn't the one in my profile, it's this: ASRock Z270M Pro4 Intel Core i7-7700K 32GB (2x16) Crucial Ballistic Sport DDR4-2400 RAM (BLS2K16G4D240FSC) EVGA Nvidia GTX 1060 OCZ Octane 120GB SSD (for now, it's what I had laying around - I have a WD Black...

    How does one download the full High Sierra Beta installer?

    When I download it from the App Store, it says it's going to download a 4.9GB installer, but what it actually downloads is an 11.6MB installer stub. My assumption is that it wants to do the full download once I start installing, but I don't want to install directly on my main hackintosh, I have...

    [Solved] HWMonitor no longer shows any info from FakeSMC sensors

    I tried to update to the latest FakeSMC and FakeSMC sensor kexts (RehabMan's branch). They've always worked before. But now I'm not getting any data from the sensors - the only data that shows up in HWMonitor is info about my SSDs from SMART. I installed the kexts as follows: FakeSMC.kext -...

    Audio suddenly stopped working

    The Realtek ALC892 audio on my system just suddenly stopped outputting any sound. I didn't change anything, nor did anything unusual happen; it just stopped making sound. I checked the Sound panel in System Preferences and everything looks normal; "Built-in Speaker" is selected as the output...

    Clueless about power management

    Can someone who has a good grasp on how power management works on hackintoshes please explain to me why my CPU is always running at its turbo frequencies even when idle, and how I can fix this? Without an SSDT this is what it looks like in Intel Power Gadget: With an SSDT generated by...

    Convince me to do a new build...

    I'm currently running with a Haswell-based (i5-4590) hackintosh with 32GB RAM (DDR3) and a GTX 750 for graphics. I don't game, do music production, or (much) video editing. My system is stable, fast, and seems to be serving me well. Yet I'm kind of itching to build a new system. I have no real...

    [Solved] Error "The installer payload failed signature check"

    I'm getting this error (see attached) at the VERY END of what seemed to be an uneventful Sierra (GM #2) installation on my Ivy Bridge NUC. Literally the very end - it says "About 0 seconds remaining" for several seconds, then the error dialog pops up. I've downloaded Sierra twice and created the...

    Clover won't install to EFI partition

    I'm trying to install the Sierra GM, and I can install and boot to it from the USB installer, but I'm not able to get Clover installed properly on the boot drive. Instead of mounting the EFI partition and installing Clover there, it just creates an EFI folder in the root of the drive and...
