Comments

I do a lot of motion graphics work, and my Early 2009 cheese grater Max Pro 8 core was starting to feel tired. I had been meaning to do the dual 6 core upgrade for a while, but I felt like building a new machine would be more fun and most of all- way faster!

This is my first build. So I really did not know exactly what I was getting myself into by buying components that had little exact use cases on the forum. But I trusted myself to be able to figure it out. Luckily, I succeeded enough to make a useful workstation. It wasn't without lots of troubleshooting, but hopefully the following directions make it simple enough to follow.

I wanted something simple, so I chose a very stripped down version of a motherboard, this one lacks Bluetooth, WiFi, and probably other bells and whistles you may find on other higher end ones. I wanted ease of installation though, so I was looking for compatibility out of the box.

Installation of the OS
At first I tried to install with High Sierra because I had initially planned to use two GTX 1080's and that limited me to HS. However after realizing that things would be much easier using AMD cards, I switched for Vega 64's which ended up being choice anyway. Then, I chose to do Mojave because I had read that installation was even easier.

1. Change BIOS Settings

Save & ExitLoad Optimized Defaults
BIOS → Fast Boot : Disabled
BIOS → LAN PXE Boot Option ROM : Disabled
BIOS → Storage Boot Option Control : UEFI
Peripherals → Trusted Computing → Security Device Support : Disable
Peripherals → Network Stack Configuration → Network Stack : Disabled
Peripherals → USB Configuration → Legacy USB Support : Auto
Peripherals → USB Configuration → XHCI Hand-off : Enabled (Extremely important)
Chipset → Vt-d : Disabled
Chipset → Wake on LAN Enable : Disabled
Chipset → IOAPIC 24-119 Entries : Enabled
2. Prepare VegaTab_64.kext for AMD Vega GPU fan speed fix
2a. Download and extract VGTab_en.zip from @pastrychef's build thread
2b. Open VGTab-en app
2c. Select Vega 64 (if this page comes up blank try reloading the app)
2d. Target Speed : 4900
2e. Target Temperator : 55
* You can adjust all of these settings to your liking later, but this is what pastrychef recommended and it's what I use.
2f. Select Generate Control Information (this will output VegaTab_64.kext to your desktop)
3. Prepare USB Installer with UniBeast for Mojave
3a. Make some minor modifications to USB EFI Partition using Clover Configurator
• Open USB Stick EFI Partition, navigate to EFI/CLOVER/
• Drag config.plist onto Clover Configurator app icon to open
System Parameters → Inject Kexts : Yes
SMBIOS → Product Name : iMac18,3 (or iMacPro1,1 but I am getting slightly better benchmark with iMac18,3)
Boot → Verbose : Enable
Rt Variables → CsrAcrtiveConfig : 0x67
• Close Clover Configurator, select "OK" if warning dialog for permanent volume storage
3b. Add a few kexts to the USB Stick EFI Partition → EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other Folder
+ Lilu.kext
+ Whatevergreen.kext
+ VegaTab_64.kext (the file output from VGTab_en app that we made in step 2)
3c. Create "Post Installation" Folder on your USB stick main partition and add a few things
+ Clover Configurator app
+ FayTun USB 802.11AC Adapter Software

4. Install Mojave
4a. Restart
4b. Hold F12 during BIOS to enter boot menu
4c. Select your USB Stick EFI
4d. When installer boots, enter Disk Utility and format "Erase" the SSD. Choose the recommended filesystem option (Journaled)
4e. Exit Disk Utility
4f. Install Mac OS X
* if computer restarts during this time, do not worry. Installation will take a number of restarts before completion. From here on out, select your main SSD hard drive during the boot sequence.

5. Copy EFI from USB Stick to Main Hard drive
5a. Open Clover Configurator on your USB stick main Partition
5b. Mount EFI → SSD → Mount Partition
5c. Mount EFI → SSD → Open Partition
5d. Mount EFI → USB Stick → Mount Partition
5e. Mount EFI → USB Stick → Open Partition
5f. Copy the entire contents from the USB Stick EFI volume to the SSD EFI Volume (Replace)

6. Post Install
• Install FayTun USB Wireless Adapter drivers
• Restart

What Works
+ Graphics
+ Built in ethernet
+ Audio (with USB Adapter)
+ WiFi (with USB Adapter)
+ Sleep and Shutdown

What Doesn't Work
– On-board audio
– Bluetooth (I don't have BT hardware, not needed though)
– DRM (I don't buy anything from on iTunes/App Store so no way of testing this)
– Thunderbolt (I really want to add this somehow)

To Do (I may need some help here)
• Audio Device recognition
• MultiBeast settings for automatic boot process


Final Thoughts

I still have some things to maybe correct and there are still some things untested. I am not sure if USB 3 works all the way, but for the most part this machine functions for what I need it for (which is a 3D animation & motion graphics workhorse). Audio sounds great through the USB audio adapter and took no software installation at all. The Vega 64's are behaving wonderfully and I am getting some great numbers in all benchmarks. No crashes, no hangs, and no failed boots to report with the system configured as shown.

I am super happy with this machine. I took me very little time to build considering this was my first build and first hackintosh project. Super thankful to all of the other contributing members here on these forums who made this a fun learning experience that has already been super rewarding.

Followed this tutorial to the dot:

How to enable Facetime messenger and imessage in Mac Os Sierra 10.12


As for the instructions:
  1. Open CloverConfigurator and mount your EFI
  2. Open your config.plist
  3. In the Rt Variables section, make sure everything is clear.
  4. Go to the SMBIOS section and click on the magic wand. Match the specs options as best you can to your machine. On the two sections that say shake, click a few times to generate a random serial. Click ok.
  5. Go to https://selfsolve.apple.com/ and search for that serial number that was generated. If you get an error message, that is good. It means you aren’t using a serial number assigned to a real Mac. If you don’t get an error, repeat step 4 and search for the new serial instead.
  6. Open terminal and run “uuidgen”.
  7. Copy this UUID and paste it in the “SmUUID” field in the SMBIOS section.
  8. In the “Board Serial Number” field, paste in your system serial number (the one generated by the magic wand) and add 5 random letters and numbers to the end to reach a total of 17 characters.The reason for step 7 and 8 is to keep your ROM (last 12 digits of the UUID that was generated) and MLB (Board Serial Number) values constant and unique on each boot of the OS. If the values change from boot to boot, iMessage will notice and fail to activate and there is potential that Apple will notice and blacklist your UUID, serial, or Apple ID. All Clover-generated ROM and MLB values are automatically blacklisted, as well.
  9. Export config.plist
  10. In terminal, run the commands:
    1. defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    2. killall Finder
  11. Navigate to /Users/[Username]/Library/Chaches and delete all files or folders beginning with: (if there is nothing there with these file names, that is ok)
    1. com.apple.Messages
    2. com.apple.imfoundation.IMRemoteURLConnectionAgent
  12. Navigate to /Users/[Username]/Library/Preferences and delete all files or folders beginning with: (if there is nothing there with these file names, that is ok)
    1. com.apple.iChat.
    2. com.apple.imagent.
    3. com.apple.imessage.
    4. com.apple.imservice.
  13. Navigate to /Users/[Username]/Library and delete the folder “Messages”(if there is nothing there with that file name, that is ok).
  14. Empty the trash. If it says files are still in use, reboot and empty it immediately upon startup.
  15. Open up Disk Utility, select your OSX partition, and rebuild the permissions. Reboot when this is completed.
  16. The moment of truth: open up iMessage and attempt to sign in. It worked for me on the first try.
  17. If it worked, you can re-hide hidden files and folders with the terminal commands:
    1. defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
    2. killall Finder
