SMBIOS for iMac11,3 used with matching board-id
DSDT courtesy of @jinky, updated for El Capitan -> Sierra (Maybe High Sierra)

Everything seems to be working perfectly, Continuity, Handoff EVERYTHING! :thumbup:

Still having the issue with loop of sleep/wake, the DSDT used was supposed to fix this issue though it could be other settings since I do not know the Bios settings @jinky used or config info. :banghead:

DSDT_F11.zip contains the correct DSDT, the one included did not speedstep properly.

@ anyone else I have missed from the months of trial and error, your posts helped a lot even if they were during times you were experiencing failure as well.
Thank you!

You should update FakeSMC.kext, @RehabMan has a repository located here:
https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-fakesmc-kozlek/downloads/

HWMonitor is of course optional, but you should install it as well to be sure your CPU is running at the right frequencies.
If you have already installed FakeSMC.kext from the attached package, delete the old version from /System/Library/Extensions and then use Kext Utility to install the new versions.

I have had an issue in the past with kextname.bak causing kernel panics.

Version provided:
RehabMan-FakeSMC-2017-0607

All other kexts were up to date as of this post.

I can't think of anything else at the moment that isn't already in the quote box below of _Notes.rtf.

audio_cloverALC-130.command will provide the proper realtekALC.kext for audio.

During the setup provided by the command file, y to everything.

Using Kext Utility install the kexts in the folder labeled kexts.

Copy the DSDT.aml from the folder CLOVER/ACPI/patched to your CLOVER/ACPI/patched.
Copy the files from the folder CLOVER/drivers64 to your CLOVER/drivers64.
Copy the config.plist from the folder CLOVER/ to your CLOVER.

Edit the config.plist where xxx is found with your information.

You can use Terminal to generate a uuid with the command uuidgen, do this several times and at random pick two of the generated uuid’s.

Paste the first chosen into SmUUID
Paste the second chosen into Custom UUID

You should already have a Serial Number and Board Serial Number, if you do not generate a config with Clover Configurator using iMac11,3 and randomize it until you see one you like, copy it and paste it into both Serial Number and Board Serial Number.

You should also verify it does not belong to a real Mac, it should show up as invalid on the apple website.

https://checkcoverage.apple.com

If it shows as a real Mac, generate a new one.

For iMessage and FaceTime, you will have to use iMessage_debug or iMessage_debugV2 to get your ROM and MLB.

Change the Theme in GUI to match what you have or want to use, I have included my modified version of mlcamp Theme.

Some patches used like generate pstates and cstates may be overkill, but I do not care since my system is as close to 100% as it will ever get.

I made my own DSDT, but had issues… found one that works perfect with a few minor USB changes.
Modifications:
EHC1 -> UHCI
EHC2 -> EH02

That is all to the _Notes file, I hope you find success.

This may change if I find something to be in error or if someone sees a problem here that is breaking sleep.
Bios settings: in image format.

These are in order from MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.) to PC Health Status including the sub menus from top to bottom.
I did forget to snap a pic of entering Avanced BIOS Features.

I still have issue, that after installing web drivers on ask, still very laggy and does not recognise my gtx 1050 card...
Any suggest?

(SOLVED)
I download 10.12.6 and installed, then Nvidia web drivers works!!!
Everything fine. BUT, still SSD seems not have all performance.
With Blackmagic disk speed test performance at 220 mb/s. Should be more?

Your motherboard's SATA ports are only SATA2, not SATA3, and therefore its throughput is lower and any SATA devices that connect to them are restricted in speed. Mechanical hard disks may not reach the speed limit, but SSDs do hit the limit and can't go any faster even though the SSD itself may be capable of faster transfer speed.

You will have to upgrade your hardware platform (meaning motherboard and CPU, and probably RAM if you are opting for a new system), if you want your SSD to operate at faster speed.

GA-P55a-UD4, i7 870 2.93 socket 1156, Geforce GT 1080, two monitors - DVI and HDMI, Legacy, High Sierra.

Hi, I set Vanilla High Sierra on my Hackintosh yesterday, and everythink works fine but somehow it's messing with my BIOS, and after turning off/on my computer loops restarting after two seconds. Then I clear CMOS, set all parameters and it works for some time, and then randomly everything from begining. So something is messing my BIOS. I changed battery in motherboard, doesn't work. Do You have any ideas? I don't want to make any changes before consulting cause everything else works fine. I found that maybe it's an RTC issue? If after cearing CMOS and setting BIOS everythink works fine through some time, so it excludes motherboard and power supply, am i right?

Check if AppleRTC is enabled in your config.plist - See AppleRTC
- config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/AppleRTC=true
Code:
<dict>
    <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>
    <dict>
        <key>AppleRTC</key>
        <true/>
    </dict>

How do you get Audio running?
Can you give me a detailed description.

Thanks
