Today Apple has released Mac OS X 10.10.5 found here. Currently there are no known issues under this version in regards to Hackintosh systems.

After the update you must re-patch AppleHDA. The download link for the Audio patch can be found on the DMG that you used for Post Install. X99 users should install the Debug AppleHDA on the X99 DMG. X79 users who need the patched kext for Power Management must also reinstall the patched driver on the X79 DMG.

Users who use the Nvidia Retail Drivers must boot with nv_disable=1 after applying the update and then update the Nvidia Retail Drivers using the Nvidia Control Panel.

  1. USB3 isn’t working after the 10.10.5 patch. I’ve tried re-installing the kexts from Step 2 standard kexts and that hasn’t worked

  2. A long time ago. Not too long after the x79 stuff was released and there started being functional Hackintosh solutions on xxxxxxx for it. The first installation I did on it was based off of Mk500’s thread.

    It’s running the latest BIOS, at least as of 2-3 months ago.

    • Well I sort of fixed my USB3 issue.

      I re-did the steps 2-3 as worked for slyvren. It didn’t seem to fix the issue, but I found that if I plug a USB memory stick into one of the ports, it “wakes” them up and they become active.

  3. On October 10, 2015. I tried to update my installed copy of Yosemite 10.10.1 to 10.10.5.

    After the installation the computer started booting but at some point the screen switches to no signal (dark) and the graphics fan spins out of control (high fan noise).

    To fix it I use this boot flag “nv_disable=1” to boot into the OS, and then installed Nvidia graphics driver (WebDriver-346.02.03f01.pkg), and after the installation I tried to boot with this boot flag (nvda_drv=1) but with no change (unsuccessful).

    I rebooted into the OS with disable graphics command (nv_disable=1), and then used “Chameleon Wizard” to create SMBios.plist with iMac13,2 profile and then replaced the SMBios.plist that was there which had Mac Pro 6.1 profile in the “Extra” folder, and I then rebooted the computer. The computer booted into the OS successfully, but less than a minute later I notice that the graphics card fan was spinning out of control or extremely too fast (very noisy).

    I rebooted with this boot flag “nvda_drv=0”, and that solved the fan problem, so I edited my org.chameleon.Boot.plist and removed “nvda_drv=1” boot flag, and rebooted into the OS successfully, but less than a minute later I notice that the graphics card fan was spinning out of control again.

    I restarted the computer but as I press the first key to enter the boot flag before booting into the OS, I noticed that this bootflag “nvda_drv=1” was already there, so I used the “backspace” key and got rid of the “nvda_drv=1” boot-flag, and then pressed enter, and the computer booted into the OS successfully with no more fan noises.

    My question is, how do i get rid of the embedded boot-flag “nvda_drv=1”, so that I can have the computer boot straight into the OS again, without having to pause and repeat the process above.

  4. Andrew, thanks for the reply.

    I don’t know how to wipe NVRAM.
    Could you please point me to any site that can show me how to wipe NVRAM.

    My computer is working fine now, the only problem is that every time I reboot the computer, I had to pause at “Darwin” hard drive selection screen to get rid of the embedded boot-flag “nvda_drv=1”.

    Instead of entering a boot-flag I’m actually getting rid of the pre-existing or embedded one, and if I don’t do that and boot straight into mac os x then the fan will start spinning out of control.
    I don’t know how to get rid of the pre-existing boot-flag in “Darwin” screen.

    Please see my computer specs below.
    Thanks for your help.
