Comments

Build this computer for one of my friend who lives in China and works overseas, the main purposes of this build are:
1. Small size which the case can be placed in a boarding case
2. Latest hardware which are capable of working (mainly for CAD) and gaming
3. Decent cooling which in result of lower fan rpm = silent.
4. Limited budget

Installation Notes
Insert your MacOS installation flash drive into rear USB 2.0 port

Bios Configuration

(I suggest that disable intel virtualization technology and IGD Multi-Monitor before installing MacOS, and re-enabled those after finishing installation)

Hi there.

Your USB problem is caused by the USBPorts.kext you have created.

1) You have no USB3.0 ports defined. You only have USB2.0 in there - HS01-HS06, HS09-HS11. You need to define the SS** ports too.

2) Also, most of those USB2.0 ports are defined as UsbConnector type "0". This is fine for Black, USB2.0-only ports, but for Blue USB3.0 ports they should be UsbConnector type "3" as physically they have more contacts in them. Your UsbConnector type for HS11 is correct if it is Internal etc.

I'm a Hackintosh n00b. Are the USB 3.0 ports figured out in the EFI files posted to this thread?
