    Hey Guys,

    I need a little bit help with my first hackintosh build. As you can see in the attached screenshots, I got a working build with the following setup:

    Gigabyte GA-Z270X-Gaming 8
    Intel i7-7700k 4,2 GHz
    G.Skill 64 GB RAM 3600 MHz
    AORUS GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G
    2x Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD
    WD Black 2TB

    After spending the whole weekend to get it up and running I now stuck on the onboard bluetooth and sound. While configuring the setup I already read several posts about bluetooth, so I decided to buy a simple Bluetooth USB Stick to get rid of all the issues. What I have not considered is the fact that macOS ignores my USB Stick and tries to load the onboard bluetooth as you can see in the screenshot. I already tried to implement the BrcmPatchRAM and I'm sure it would work with the USB Stick, but it won't work with the onboard device.

    Sound is also a problem. I tried the AppleALC and the VoodoHDA, but none of them works. I haven't any output device in the settings and the VoodoHDA returned "No VoodoHDA device found".

    Any ideas or solutions on this?

    I would appreciate any kind of help. Thanks in advance.

    Flo

    Hi Feam,

    I got a identical setup except for the 1080Ti.
    For me bluetooth just worked from the start until yesterday after i disconnected my Magic Keyboard to replace it with another one. Haven't figured that one out yet. Bluetooth just says that it's unavailable now.

    AppleALC gives me all ports but no sound.

    So same issues sort of..

    I'll let you know if i figure something out..

    Hi guys, i have a very similar setup as you have.. I have no success with a clean install on either sierra or high sierra
    (system reboots when loading the installer (white apple logo for 5 secs on a black screen) after clover window..
    Feels like i tried every single guide tutorial that is out there.. can you guys help? is there anything special i need to tweak/mod to make it work?

    Thanks in advance, Chris.

    I'll try and help in the morning, nearly asleep as I type this.. as I have a very similar system and it took me a while to get it to work but now seems very stable.
