UniBeast has been updated to version 7.0 for macOS Sierra. This tool creates a bootable USB drive from your Mac App Store purchased copy of macOS. The resulting USB drive allows for a clean install, upgrade or use as a rescue boot drive.
  • Added macOS Sierra installation option
  • Removed OS X Yosemite and OS X El Capitan options
  • Updated bootloader to Clover EFI v2.3 r3766
  • Updated Atheros ethernet driver
  • Added default iMac14,2 System Definition
  • Added default nv_disable=1 boot argument

I would like to ask if any of you have ever dealt with Pegatron Corporation motherboards and if it is any good for a hackintosh? I have HP Envy h8-1511eo that shipped with this motherboard. I intend to buy an SSD and install Hackintosh on it, throw in a dedicated Wi-Fi card and hopefully get a somewhat acceptable Hackintosh workstation, but I wonder what you people think about that?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Hello guys, Today I upgraded my laptop (Previously running El Capitan) and I made a new installer via Unibeast- and the install works flawlessly and I can install it with no issues and everything works super smooth with no visible issues whatsoever...

Until I install clover onto my HDD.

Try 1) Clover boots, I click the OS drive, Doesnt show apple logo; Hangs.

Verbose mode 100% blank.

2) Tried again with some different clover settings,

Same thing.

3) c&p'd 100% same EFI from my USB... Thats gotta work right?

Nope. Gets to apple logo this time around, but hangs once there.

God damn, i'm out of ideas.

I was just thinking that I'm not really sure how much power my new rig consumes but it's surely more than the MBP I was running before. Tonight I need to leave it running to finish a download and I was just thinking that it would be good to see what if anything I can do to save power. I'm not sure if the GPU still draws power in sleep state but even if it doesn't I'll bet it would still be more economic to use the onboard graphics for most situations except when doing something graphically intense.

Any thoughts?

Hey guys! I am trying to install OS X El Capitan on my PC. I followed this YouTube video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tqsxe7nSv50 And everything was going fine. Untill the installation screen, I got an error saying "OS X El Capitan is already installed on this Mac." even though I've never installed Mac on my PC before. I googled the problem but found very few posts about it and I couldn't understand/follow what should I do. They're mentioning coping "SMBIOS" file to the Extra folder but it didn't work either. My PC specs: Intel core 2 duo e8400 Mother board :Gigabyte ep45-ud3r Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 4 GB RAM


Your help is much appreciated Thanks in advance :)

Hi all,

I'm putting together a new PC build for gaming and productivity and I'm looking for advice on my parts list.

I'm primarily interested in whether anything I've chosen stands out exceptionally as being incompatible with known Hackintosh methods and also if anyone here is running a similar build.

I'm a DevOps and Software Engineer by trade, so I am not averse to a little tinkering and/or hacking, and I'm fully aware that it may never work quite right even if everything looks solid on paper.

The parts list is below:

Hello fellow hackosers :P So I installed my first ever hackintosh system yesterday with Unibeast for the USB and UEFI Clover bootloader . Everything worked just fine , I setup the Apple ID etc . The problem that I have is that it is not bootable without the USB , I tried to install the kexts with Clover Configurator but when I try to mount the EFI of my hard drive it does not appear on Desktop , only the EFI of my USB . 

I even tried to update my Clover bootloader through the Configurator but while I install the update , the version stays the same .

So when initially setting up my first hackintosh, I set it up as a late 2008 Mac Pro model; which can't be upgraded to macOS Sierra. 

  • Is it possible to change the 'mac' model to something newer using clover or something?

List of Macs Compatible with MacOS Sierra 10.12

According to Apple, the official compatible hardware list of Macs capable of running Mac OS Sierra 10.12 is as follows:
  • MacBook Pro (2010 and later)
  • MacBook Air (2010 and later)
  • Mac Mini (2010 and later)
  • Mac Pro (2010 and later)
  • MacBook (Late 2009 and later)
  • iMac (Late 2009 and later)

I successfully installed Yosemite using Clover and got it started up once using the boot flags npci=0x2000 and nv_disable=true in order to start it up on my GTX 970. I went to install Nvidia web drivers and restarted, and now I get this kernel panic no matter what I try. If necessary I can just reinstall Yosemite and fix whatever I messed up, but I need to know either how to fix the problem or how to avoid messing it up again the second go around.

As it would probably be helpful, here are my system specs. I have Windows 10 on my SSD and am using a second 500 GB HDD I pulled out of a random computer I had lying around, and installed Yosemite on that. While doing the OSX stuff I kept my SSD unplug so I didn't fuck up anything.

So I managed to install Sierra on Clover with hardly any problems. Everything seems to work fine, apart from the random rebooting. Every time I restart it takes about 2-3 restarts for Sierra to work. In some cases, in those 2-3 times, I may get a Kernal panic, which will reboot then seem to work after the reboot. It sometimes even, reboots gets me to the login screen, I type in the password and then it decides to reboot?

Anyway, my boot arguments are:

dart=0 and that's it. Maybe I'm missing a couple more arguments?

My Hackintosh specs are:
  • GA-Z97X-UD5H 
  • i7-4790K 
  • Asus STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 256 Bit 
  • Nvidia GTX 980

Anyway, any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I've almost got everything working on my new Sierra install, but I can't use iMessage or anything like that because, for whatever reason, my ethernet is stuck on en1, and that requires en0. I've tried deleting NetworkPreferences.plist and preferences.plist to no avail. Any ideas?

Hi all, have a Skylake with 10.11.6 and an Apple Cinema Display 27" via DisplayPort on an Intel HD530.

I set the display to sleep but it doesn't. It used to work very well, but it stays awake.

I have trashed the power settings .plist but it didn't help.

Is there anything I can do to make the monitor go to sleep?

I have Sierra running with a GTX 980 on the Nvidia web drivers. For some reason, I am having two issues.

  1. I used to use Chrome to black out the second monitor, but now it loses focus whenever I put Netflix into full screen and shows the menu bar.

  2. Netflix has a slight stutter. Not bad, but it makes watching movies a bit annoying.

Anyone have any solutions? I vaguely remember in El Capitan that I had to do something with the monitor spaces or something, but I don't remember.

It would be nice to be able to get this video smoothed out.

So I am currently have an X99 Build:

Asus X99 Deluxe

Intel i7-5820K @ 4+GHz (not sure what I have the OC set to atm)



So here are my questions for those of you that might have similar builds:

  1. I want to get iMessage working, and need to change my SMBIOS, what settings do you think might work best for my hardware?

  2. ElCap/Sierra... I am currently using Yosemite and would like to upgrade from it, and am not sure which one. I dont know how hard it will be for either, so if anyone has any advice on that, I would love to hear!

It's been a while since this problem started, but every time I boot with my normal boot flags for my i5-6600k and GTX 960 (dart=0 nvda_drv=1)

With -v enabled, I found the following errors upon boot:

sxAptioFix2Drv: Starting overrides for System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi

Using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no

Using Safe Mode

Error allocating 0x11977 pages at 0x000000000313a000 alloc type 2

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-170MX-Gaming 5 SSD: 128 GB Samsung 850 Pro Video Card: EVGA GTX 950

After I installed all my kexts and drivers with Unibeast, removed the drive, and tried to boot for the first time I get to the Apple logo and the loading bar and it freezes.

Booting with boot arg dart=0 and verbose mode: http://ift.tt/2deVvN3

Something about PXSX? Help? Thanks ahead of time

Hi guys I recently made a hackintosh and so far it runs pretty nice but I have problem that starting to really bother me. I bought a Asus usb n10 nano wireless adapter after seeing it as recommended for hackintosh online. I installed the drives and it works but the connection drops all the time some times in 2 minutes, some in 20 but it is never stable. I tried many drivers but couldn't find a solution. I really want to keep using mac os but this problem makes it really hard for me. Is there anything I can do?
