little update to let works bluetooth:
- Press F2 on start and disable WLAN and Bluetooth (from NUC BIOS)
- Buy Trust bluetooth adapter: https://www.trust.com/it/product/18187-bluetooth-4-0-adapter
- Done! Bluetooth is now working perfectly (tested with Apple Magic Keyboard and Microsoft Bluetooth mouse)

Question for expert hackintosh users: it's possibile let the USBC port works?

@Bikkembergz, please update your profile (account details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card(s).
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard.

So I'm a bit at a loss here, after following this guide exactly - and then looking for other issues.

Problem: machine will not complete setup after install, verbose mode
either A (most common):
reports error:
OSX error allocating 0x119bb pages at [memory address] alloc type 2
Couldn't allocate runtime area


or B:
completes initial boot, moves to post-install setup, and immediately reboots, next boot is always followed by the above

Specs:
System: NUC8i7BEH
Memory: 2x8 Corsair Vengeance (DDR4-2400)
Drive: Samsung 970 EVO 250GB (NVMe)

This is really just bizarre. I can get through the install process but on final boot to complete setup, I just get the above errors. Any advice would be welcome.

Edit:
Another bizarre (possibly red herring?) addition to the situation - this seems to be time related. If I boot the NUC to clover, and then wait for 2-3 minutes (haven't narrowed the timing exactly yet) and then complete booting to OSX, I can boot no problem. Any sooner than that, and I just get the above error. This is consistent, however. I can't boot OSX immediately after system startup, but I can after a few minutes.

TR01, since misery (or mystery) loves company, I'll share with you that I have the same symptoms observed.

Specs:
System: NUC8i5BEK
Memory: 2x8 Crucial (DDR4-2400)
Drive: Samsun 970 EVO 250GB (NVMe)

I have installed Windows 10 into a dual-boot configuration. Whenever I boot Windows from Clover, it is always successful. Whenever I boot to macOS from Clover, either from powered off state, or restart from Windows, or restart from macOS, I get the same OSX error allocating error (and if not verbose mode, then simply the "Do Not Proceed" symbol.

I have given up at the moment, and now I just hit ctrl-alt-delete and try again. Usually get through on the third attempt.

Annoying though.

That seems to be about the same for me after playing with it for a few days, but I'm not dual-booting. It's pure hackintosh - and a fast one, when it boots.

I just wish there were a tuneable to allow it to boot every single time with no problem.

Hi,

Great Guide! My NUC7i5BNK runs like a BEAST!
Samsung EVO 970 500GB and 16GB DDR4 Ram make this thing ****ing smooth.

The only thing I can't get to work is Audio via HDMI.

Im using a Asus VG248QE, the Screen has got Speakers, but my NUC doesn't recognise it.

If I press on Magic Keyboard louder it just shows me a circle with a stripe in it, like there's no possibility to change the volume.

Also if I wanna use Siri, I always have to turn down the mic input level in voodoo.

Maybe someone can help me?

Best!

Thank you for your guide!
This is my second hackintosh within 12 months. My first (free) build went quite smoothly.
But with my newly arrived NUC8i5BEH2 I am not even able to enter the BIOS! F2 simply does not work! I was able to enter the "Power Button"-Menu and to restore the BIOS (version 056). But after that I am stuck again. F7 doesn´t seem to work either. If I am plugin an install USB stick (configured like said in the guide), I got a failure message, that it is not able to boot "for security reasons". Any ideas? I would be very happy about some help. Thanks in advance!
