Hi friends,
months ago I mounted succesfully a hackintosh for my wife and it has worked perfectly until tonight.
I wanted to install the drivers for a usb wifi and after installing it has not started anymore. Every time I try to boot it gets a different message.,
What do you recommend me to do? I can enter clover's boot configurator (legacy) but I don't know what have to do. I can also connect the hard disk to a linux and rename or delete kext files, but I don't know if that's what to do or not.

This is the package I've installed :https://github.com/chris1111/Wireless-USB-Adapter-Clover/releases/tag/V8

The worst of all is that my wife needs the mac to connect to her work and now she is without a computer and I'm going to die :crazy::crazy::crazy::crazy::crazy:

Hi friends
We are not friends, you only get in touch when you want something :)

The linked package installs two kexts (RtWlanU.kext and RtWlanU1827.kext) to the EFI partition in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other. There is also a StatusBarApp.app which is probably installed to /Applications on the system disk (or maybe /Applications/Utilities).
Removing these items should reverse the effects of installation.

Alternatively, restore your backup.

Sorry, I only pretended to be correct
I didn't make any copies of the EFI partition or the config.plist, I was very naive ...
I've deleted the two kexts and doesn't boot, it hangs at "PCI configuration begin" message.

My boots args that works fine until yestarday are:
-v dart=0 npci=0x2000 nvda_drv=1 kext-dev=1 -no_compat_check

I've tested PCIRootUID=1 but not boot. :cry::cry::cry:

Hi there.

Two ways into your system to repair the damage:

1) Boot into the Recovery partition and use Terminal to rebuild your kext caches. As you have deleted the kexts this should clear all traces. The command is: sudo kextcache -I /

2) Boot your system using your UniBeast installer USB stick. Then run the Terminal command and drag the StatusBarApp.app @P1LGRIM points out, into Trash.

You don't state which model wireless you are trying to install. I have found that the TP-Link drivers work well as long as you choose the correct version number for your adapter when downloading. They changed the brand/model of chipset occasionally.

thanks for your replies.
I've booted with a usb live ubuntu and I've found a copy of my config.plist from a few months later, I copied to a EFI partition and I've booted!!!
When I booted I deleted StatusBarApp.app and did the command sudo kextcache -I / but the commands returns "not work to do" hackintosh

But when I edit the config.plist boot section to set a timeout and boot automatically from my volume, when I set my volume:
<string>SSD Mac OS Sierra</string>

It doesn't boot, but when it's "LastBootedVolume" I've to press enter to boot. My volume name is correct.
I dont' understand because cannot boot automatically as before if the boot section is correct.

Thanks people

Hi all
Now I can boot, but not automatically. If I edit the config.plist and put my volume name on string section, it doesn't boot. Before installing the Wi-Fi drivers I had it like this and it worked fine.

I did sudo kextcache -i / with this result:

Password:
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext Lilu.kext
KernelCache ID: FD25179D435F32D552C5DF057EBDEB38
symlink("/System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel", "/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache") failed 17 (File exists) <createPrelinkedKernel 2795>


What can I do to boot automatically and not crash?
Thanks
