Hello, thanks for the awesome guide, I does have the same computer components as yours used in this guide, but I have X99/haswell-E system, my specs are:

mobo: Asus V Rampage Extreme
CPU: i7-5820K Haswell-E
PSU: Corsair AX1200i
RAM: Corsair dominator 16GB DDR4
GPU: Geforce GTX 1070 Founders Edition
Storage: Samsung EVO 850 Pro

And I have followed a your guide with my specs and got everything to almost work, but I have some issues that maybe you
kgp ,or someone else could help me with :) really appreciate it.

The issues is first of that something the system boots fine, and other times I doesn't but at all, Is this normal, or is it possible to get it to boot successfully into the Mac OS everytime, because some times it loads and starts up fine, and other times it just stops loading under the apple logo and the computer reboot, and I have to try example with -v, and sometimes it works without it etc.. hmm

my most important issues that I have is that when I'm in Mac OS Sierra, the computer random shutdowns, that means to reboot screen or anything, it just turn completely off, and then it is off for a bout 3-4 seconds and then the computer powers on again, this happens randomly, but really often, most times I have been logged into Mac OS and it happens after 7-10 minutes almost every time, and I have followed your guide detailed, but there maybe something iv missed or have done wrong, or has it something to do with some configs for my cpu that its randomly turns off? thanks for answer :)


1.) Your system always should boot successfully. Seems you have somewhere a knot. Do you use the appropriate FakeCPUID? However, your boot-failures could also be due to 2.)
2.) Random reboots could have two different sources listed below:
a.) you do not use "OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi"
b.) Your RAM memory is not compatible with your mainboard. I provide in my guide the ASUS Memory Qualified Vendors List
for the X99-A II and X99 Deluxe II. I do not know if this list is also valid for the ASUS V Rampage Extreme... However, you will have to check whether or not your RAM is compatible with your mobo....

Cheers,

KGP

oki thanks for answer really fast:D

I'm using the "OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi" placed in /EFI/Clover/Drivers64uefi on my hackintosh SSD disk
okay I will check the ram, but it should be compatible with my mobo hmm.
I did move all the files from the kexts folder in your guide to /EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.12, but I didn't do anything with the SSDT-1-aml provided in the guide, would it help if I send some pictures of my hackintosh, because I'm really excited about it worked that well, but only the reboot thing destroy it all, because I Cant really do any productive work on it, because I produce some music, and then if it randomly reboot I looses everything :/ All help really approached :)

@kgp : I have a second build which is exactly the same setup as yours and if I use your Efi folder I can't boot if FakeSMC Plugins are present. If I delete them everything is ok but the system boots maybe from 6 times only 2, because of a AllocateRelocBlock error but I already use OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi ! Any idea? By the way why are you using the BRCMPatchRam2 and the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext ?

1.) :!::!::!::!: "OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi" needs to be in /EFI/CLOVER/Drivers64UEFI/ :!::!::!::!: An efi-file is not a kext-file :!::!::!::!:
There should not be any other "OsxAptioFixDrv**.efi" files in /EFI/CLOVER/Drivers64UEFI/
2.) If you did not mess up 1) the reason for your random reboots must be 2) the RAM memory. There is no other alternative :!:
3.) The SSDT-1.aml is for NVMe. Unless you do have a NVMe drive, you do not need it. If you have one, create your own NVme.aml following my guide.

I now that all help is appreciated on your side, but you also have to consider and follow my advices. Otherwise, my help might be just a waste of time...

Cheers,

@hooked, I just discovered a flawless working voodooHDA.kext on sourceforge (download-link: VoodooHDA.kext-289.zip). You mentioned that you worked with the VoodooHDA.kext and it does not break sleep/weak.
What else I have to consider in my system configuration in case I would use this VoodooHDA.kext for audio, especially with respect to sleep/wake?

Cheers and many thanks in advance,

KGP

I did not have any sleep issues with VoodooHda either, sleep wake works for me with voodoo as well. I noticed @KevinAGI helped you with the value for XHCI. I don't know how that got mixed up in your config, the one I sent you had the correct values, but at least thats fixed. Are you still having trouble with waking from sleep?

a.) You should not just copy my EFI folder! That's why I did not publish this folder earlier. Your should install your hackintosh step by step following my guide.
b.) You have my EFI folder, so please why do you ask me now wether or not I am using the RCMPatchRam2.kext and the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext?

Cheers,

The first time you sent me just a picture of your ACPI DSDT patches. I must have confused the one entry by entering all values manually. Bad luck!

Yes i am still facing a freeze and reboot on wake. Sometimes I even see the Desktop, which however is just frozen. Then after some seconds the reboot occurs...

I have an essential doubt: In all your builds with working sleep/wake you use a Haswell-E processor, which is also officially supported by Apple. Also the build of @erlipton05 is based on a Haswell-E processor. Thus it might well be that sleep/wake is not only a question of the mobo, the correct config.plist settings or kexts, but rather depends on the kind of processor one is employing. I am very curious what would happen if you use your build with a Broadwell-E processor, like the i7-6800K, i7-6850K, i7-6900K, or i7-6950X :!:

Can you try something? Go To System Preferences>Energy Saver>Put hard disks to sleep when possible (UNCHECK THIS) and try to wake from sleep. Reboot then try.

you have a NVME right?
