Looking for someone to any/all of these parts of the guide with me. I'd be on Skype/TeamViewer, guiding you through the process. Just need to validate that they work for other people before I post the steps in the thread:

1. Removing Chameleon

2. Fixing USB after sleep/Audio after sleep

3. Installing Windows through Boot Camp

What motherboard do you have?

A 256gb SSD is a measly $60 these days, just saying. 128 is even cheaper. You can install Tuxera NTFS once you have the OS installed and use your main drive for actual file storage.
ASRock Z97 PRO4 ATX LGA1150.

SSDs cost a little more than that in the UK (about $60 for the 128), but it's really more that I just wanna screw around in OSX and those apps and I'm pretty broke after just upgrading my PC. Just got the VM setup but I'll need to apply some kind of fix to get iCloud working, I'll have a look at that over the weekend.

Any idea why iMessage would work inconsistently? Most of the time it delivers messages fine but sometimes it'll just start trying to send as SMS and then report "Not Delivered." Ethernet is en0. (Also, deleting my network kexts caused OS X to stop booting...)

e: Could it have anything to do with my using a TP-Link TL-WDN4800 with the locale issue?

That's very odd. Try using this script (https://gist.github.com/theracermas...b46b14061d4c995) to generate a new MLB value. Put it in your Clover config and give it a go. Backup your old value first.

Maybe. Dunno.

FWIW SMS works just fine with working iMessage and doesn't need wifi/BT to work. I don't have any Continuity compatible hardware on my machine and SMS forwarding works great.

That's a great one. Amazon has one at a cheaper price, but the engineering on that card is top notch.

But, as Kitten says, you do not need WiFi/BT for SMS. It just uses iCloud.

I finally dumped my ATI 6850 and got a nvidia GTX 950 (apparently there's a problem with wake from sleep with ATI cards on hackintoshes, it'll just go to a black screen).

After the swap, everything is perfect (sleep and wake).

holy shit this os has cinepak?!?!?



I updated my Hackintosh today and I'm not getting any video from my GTX 970 with the Nvidia driver the Apple driver works, but everything looks hosed up and it takes forever for it to refresh whatever is on the screen. I don't really know why this happened or what caused it since the only things that were installed were a security update (2015-004) and the command-line Xcode tools. After this happened, the Nvidia web driver updater popped up to tell me about a new version, so I installed it and I'm still getting nothing.

I tried replacing the AppleGraphicsControl kext even though it didn't seem to be updated, and out of desperation I even generated a MacPro3,1 SMBIOS config; I usually use a cloned MacPro6,1 SMBIOS and haven't had any problems with it up until now. It still boots and is reachable over the network, so I've been loving around with it using VNC, but I can't figure out what the gently caress went wrong. Anyone know what's going on with this? It's on 10.10.5 14F1021.

Well, I kinda fixed it by using an old config.plist that had my integrated Intel graphics working. So I booted using that over HDMI, logged in, and then switched my monitor's input to DisplayPort, which is connected to my 970.

I have no idea why this works or how, because the last time I tried this OS X would kernel panic if I had both devices enabled. I'd still like to figure out why I can't boot with just the 970 though. Having to switch inputs every time I reboot is going to be a pain in the rear end, and I'm using a really old config.plist.

For some reason, your MLB value is blacklisted. Generate a new serial in Clover Configurator, reboot, run this script, set the resulting output as the MLB value, reboot and try again.

Hmm... Usually I can figure this out, but I am stuck on this one.

I have a GTX 960 and thus require the Nvidia WebDriver.

After the upgrade, I booted with nv_disable=1, installed the correct WebDriver. and then attempted to boot with nvda_drv=1 as usual. However my monitor just goes to sleep, like its not loading the driver.

Are you on 10.11.1? The latest WebDriver only supports 10.11.1, not 10.11.0. You can remove the version check (see OP) to get around that, if you need 10.11.0 for whatever reason.

That is likely it.. I likely have 10.11.0 installed...

It turned out that my Clover was fine, which is why my NVRAM seemed to be working except for ROM value.

The problem was an oddity in Clover, where it will look for a NVRAM.plist file on all volumes, even non-boot ones.

Inside
/Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/misc/debug.log

1:694 0:025 Loading nvram.plist from Vol 'Macintosh SSD' - loaded, size=795
1:698 0:004 PutNvramPlistToRtVars ...

(Macintosh SSD is my System 10.9 disk.)

I junked that nvram.plist file and rebooted.
1:635 0:024 PutNvramPlistToRtVars: nvram.plist not found

Now my ROM is being populated and iMessage works!
