Is it possible to install macOS Ventura on x79, C602 chipset with Intel Xeon E-1620 Sandy Bridge

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have been hackintoshing for more than 10 years but never had such trouble like with macOS Ventura. Tried both with OpenCore and Clover without any success, or better said I managed to install Ventura with OpenCore about a month ago, but was not able to boot into it. I don't know where that EFI is now, and now I can't even start the install process (get an error that Ventura can't be install on this computer". I am not a novice when it comes to both Clover and OpenCore, but it seem I am missing something.

I tried Olarila EFI for Sandy Bridge without success.

I run Monterey on this machine without any problem and according to some people it is possible to run Ventura as well (as you can see on this link:



My specs:

Hp Z420 Workstation

x79, C602

Intel Xeon E-1620 3,6 GHz CPU, Sandy Bridge

AMD Radeon RX570 4 Gb GPU


Samsung EVO 500 Gb SSD

Yes, I tried both Olarila EFIs. One for SandyBridge and another for x79. Now I can boot to the installer but I get "macOS Ventura is not compatible with this Mac". I am using MacPro6,1 SMBIOS. All others give my kernel panic (MacPro,7,1, iMacPro1,1, iMac 19x).

Here is the screenshot:
