  1. I tried booting without the usb but then I end on that gray screen (picture 1 in my last post). I am not sure what I am supposed to do there. I think I have tried all options but never got the initial setup screen to show up.
  2. I will give the restore a try later and test less involved methods first... I have tried 10.15.3 Olarila Vanilla image... 1- I have added my High Sierra DSDT.aml in the USB 2- I have modified the SMBIOS on the USB with Clover Configurator to make my pc look like a iMac 14.2 (could this cause a problem considering that my hardware is nowhere similar?) 3- I have added to the USB some kexts (which worked with Mojave) to detect my SATA drives Doing this allows to bypass the previously reported error message. After an automatic reboot a « data » drive gets created. 1- should I load directly on the data disk? or 2- should I use the USB to boot on data disk? NOTE: When I boot data disk with the Olarila USB the install resume at 13minutes then when it reaches about 3 minutes left the computer reboots. Do you have suggestions to make 10.15.3 install work or is it not worth trying based on your experience?
  3. Have you been successful?
  4. Restore.....? As in BigSur restore? 😮
  5. Hi everyone, I know that I am starting to stretch the envelope with attempting to install Catalina 10.15.6 on the grandpa motherboard P6T Deluxe v2 after successfully installing Mojave : but here we go... I started with the "This version of macos 10.15.6 cannot be installed on this computer" error. Which I fixed through changing the SMBIOS of the Catalina USB ( EFI/CLOVER/config.plist) to iMAC14,2 in Clover Configurator. But now I am getting, 2 minutes before the end of installing Catalina, "An error occurred while preparing the installation.Try running this application again" flat smileys * So I added the EmuVariableUefi ( Clover Configurator -> Install Drivers -> DRIVERS UEFI 64 Bit -> EmuVariableUefi -> Download ) * And I added a patched DSDT.aml (in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched) : .... But I am still getting the "An error occurred while preparing the installation.Try running this application again" error message. Does that mean it is the end of the road for me? Also I notice that the EmuVariableUefi.efi gets copied into EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI even though I have a BIOS based motherboard is that ok?
  6. Thank you for your support MaLd0n! After some further investigation here's what works with my Mojave P6T Deluxe v2 (AD2000b) setup (I will retest with layout id 5 again just in case)... KEXTS : Latest Lilu & AppleLC CLOVER CONFIGURATOR: ACPI: change HDAS to HDEF CLOVER CONFIGURATOR: Devices: Layout 7, ResetHDA, upload image to internet AND deleting HDAEnabler kext I also removed LegacyAppleYukon2 since it didn't turn on my Marvel Yukon network card on my motherboard (IONetworkingFamily did ) By the way my Rosewill RDCR-11004 - Data Hub is working too (when something is connected in it during boot sequence) which is awesome. Quick question : Can P6T motherboard install Catalina? Muito obrigado. IONetworkingFamily.kext.zip SATA-RAID.zip
  7. Anyone has been successful with AD2000b and Olarila Vanilla Mojave with Lilu and AppleLC ? Video card + Network card + Skullcandy USB headset are working fine but I can't seem to get my P6T Deluxe v2 soundboard to be detected either with layout ID 5 or 7 in Clover even with MaLd0n's patched DSDT file (obrigado). Is it normal that hackintool shows 99 as a layout ID? (blue flagged files are to allow my RAID drives to be detected, grey to make my integrated Yukon Ethernet work). free picture hosting
  8. When booting from a USB key are the Kexts + configs in the hard disk Clover EFI ignored?(I am asking so to know how to make safe changes. Last time I applied a DSDT.aml file OS X wouldn't boot anymore which forced me to reinstall OS X).
  9. Somehow I am not confident that the problem is the USB to be honest because then how would you explain that the older packaged Olarila 10.13.6 and Niresh 10.13 go through the install every single time without fail on that same USB key and same USB port? That being said I will do my due diligence and leave no stone unturned and will test all the USB ports on the PC with 4 different USB keys with : *Olarila Stock *Olarila AHCI Injected *Olarila EFI replaced *Olarila 2020 Stock *Olarila 2020 AHCI Injected *Olarila 2020 EFI replaced And then come back here with my results. Obviously it’s going to take some time but hey it is Social distancing time! Lol.
  10. Should I use the AHCIPortInjector.kext in this EFI ?
  11. I have taken the ZIP then did a REPLACE (should I have done a MERGE instead?) and the result is the same. OBSERVATIONS (if it can help) : I did face an identical situation with the previous 10.13.6 Olarila package that was provided here and was able to work around it (in IDE, RAID & AHCI) by using the zip that is associated to Tech Labs' video (unfortunately that doesn't work with the 2020 package).
  12. Thank you MaLd0n for your help. Unfortunately that didn't work. With that kext on the Orila USB I get a crash with the non entry logo before I even get to lay eyes on the installer itself. FYI 1: I use "Set Nvidia to VESA" because I have a GTX 260 video card (without that I get a reboot of the computer). FYI 2: I have copied the kext to the EFI partition of the USB in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other at first (that resulted in a crash) then I used EasyKext Pro to install the kext into Library/Extensions (but the crash is still happening) with AHCI or IDE or RAID in BIOS.
  13. Isn't Metal graphic card required on Mojave? You have an older PC's than mine with Metal compatible videocard?
  14. Thank you for the suggestions. I will give the 2020 package a go and see how it goes and indeed shall support with donations.
  15. I am following Olaria’s instruction to install OSX 10.13.6 released 2020 but I am unable to see my SATA hard drive during the install process (in diskutil). My motherboard is an Asus P6 T Deluxe v2 (x58 chipset Legacy motherboard with no UEFI support). Problem remains no matter what setting I use (IDE, RAID or AHCI). Note: My hard drive was detected no problem with Niresh 10.13 USB release. Can somebody help me or suggest a way to make my harddrive appear during the install of MacOS Olarila 10.13.6?
  16. Before testing Olarila OSX 10.13.6 I used to run Niresh 10.13 which was working EXTREMELY well. My GTX 260 Nvdia 896Meg grand daddy videocard was fully recognized, my screen was detected with brand name and all, network card, usb, bluetooth the list goes on... But then OSX started to nag me me with 10.13.6 updates notifications. Installing the update would instantly break my Hackintosh. So I turned to Olarila 10.13.6 and I am facing one hell of a problem.... Boot sequence with Clover literally takes 15 MINUTES!!!! The longest part is when the “Start ReadKernelCache” message shows up I kid you not the PC will stay there for 8 MINUTES!!!!!!! On Niresh 10.13 the Chameleon bootloader would take at most 15-20 SECONDS!!! So my question to you all: Is it possible to boot Olarila High Sierra 10.13.6 with Enoch Chameleon? I have a grand daddy PC based on a P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard with BIOS (not UEFI) and running on a Sata Seagate Samsung Spinpoint 1.5T hard drive.
  17. Quick inquiry... Is the DSDT generic for P6T Deluxe v2 motherboard only or does it also take care of GTX 260 graphic card and ADI AD2000B motherboard integrated audio?
  18. Also when I try to run master-disable.command I get an error message... The application "Terminal" can't be opened. Is that really bad/important? image uploader this is Olarila high Sierra 10.13.6 legacy on a P6T Deluxe v2 motherboard
  19. I am a bit confused by the screenshots that you have provided.. You have boxes not checked in one picture and then checked in the next picture. So what is it? One screen capture contradicts the other.
  20. Alright I have made some advances... First I have setup a Virtualbox to be able to modify the Olarila Installer USB and did the following: 1- Got a GTX 260 compatible “El Capitan” NVDAStartup.kext (from tonycrapx86) 2- Got a P6T Deluxe v2 network card Marvell Yukon 88E8056 compatible IONetworkingFamily.kext (from Insanelymac) 3- Got a “HDD not visable in Disk Utility” fix (found at ) 4- Copied all of those downloads into: * [EFI]/CLOVER/Kext/Other * /Library/Extensions * /System/Library/Extensions 5- Used BatCHMOD because I am lazy (from lagentesoft) to change the permissions of the uncompressed files that copied over in those folders to 755 (except that I have noticed the files in the EFI partitions had all 777 permissions so I did the same for the files that I have added in there. 6- Then I installed Olarila’s High Sierra USB using: * -v * slide=0 * nv_disable=1 * debug=0x100 7- After Olarila USB’s reboot I booted MacOS using the USB again with the same settings as in #6 And now going through MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6 I get the following when trying to sign in into my itunes account (after entering my confirmed credentials): protocolVersion 2 DefaultButtonLabel OK Body Try signing in again. Error ID GENERIC SERVER ERROR DialogType GenericDialog AlternateButtonLink.skipped AlternateButtonLabel.skipped localizedError GENERIC_SERVER_ERROR DefaultButtonLink.skipped Header Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud. description Generic server error when setup is down HelpLink.skipped When that screen shows up, the buttons at the bottom of the screen don’t work. Does anyone have suggestions? Also is it normal that it takes “sooooo loooooong” to boot with clover legacy? Like it takes several minutes before even seeing clover’s boot menu and then the whole loading up of MacOs take about 12mins just to show the first MacOS screen?!? I guess I am missing something cause with enoch and 10.13 it merely takes seconds to boot.
  21. MaLd0n - Hmmm ..... I just thought of something... This is a new install and I didn't install clover bootloader yet in the EFI partition of the SSD yet (since I still have to manage to get in macOS)... So if I got a video problem (which I guess is caused by a "bad" KEXT) the solution would be to replace the "bad" KEXT right? Where? /System/Library/Extensions ?
  22. Ok so I guess I need to figure out a way to access the installed EFI partition and change the Nividia Kext... I will see if I can find a EFI mounter for windows.
  23. Alright I have waited 8mins and indeed screen shown more activity... And before the screen turned black the following can be seen: Does it ring a bell? Do you have a clue about what is wrong?
