ASROCK Z370 Extreme4 / Pro4 Hackintosh High Sierra Guide

I’ve been testing various motherboards since Coffee Lake released including the ASRock Z370 Extreme4 & an ASRock Z370 Pro4 to see which ones I like the best. I’m writing this early as a couple of you have been having trouble getting macOS High Sierra Installed on your ASRock Z370 motherboards.

Coffee Lake i3 iGPU Working

For this test build I paired my ASRock motherboards with the i3-8350k. I got the i3 iGPU up and running without needing a dedicated graphics card. The Coffee Lake i5/i7 work OOB in macOS High Sierra, however the i3 requires spoofing a Kaby Lake CPU to get the iGPU accelerated properly. Surprisingly, sleep works fine and reliably despite being spoofed as a Kaby lake iGPU. For this test build I slapped on a Dark Rock Pro 3 as a temporary cooler which was overkill for the i3-8350k. Temps only peaked at around 50C.

Parts

Here’s the final parts I used for this test build:

Part Name Purchase
Total $689.36
CPU Intel Core i3-8350K Quad-Core Processor $179.99
Motherboard ASRock Z370 Extreme4 ATX $144.99
Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory $189.99
Storage SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 250GB $124.40
Power Supply EVGA 600 BQ, 80+ BRONZE 600W $49.99

Why Two Motherboards?

I was originally just planning to get the ASRock Z370 PRO. However, after binge watch videos and listening to music with it I noticed the max volume that could be set was a tad lower and not as crisp sounding as the ALC1220 audio chipset I was using prior.  The ASROCK Z370 Extreme4  just happened to be on sale at the time for a little more than what I paid for the Pro4 and had the better ALC1220 audio chipset. Having both side the Extreme4 looks a lot better and it’s 12 phase power design is more useful if I want to overclock the i3-8350k. If you are debating whether to get the Z370 Pro4 or something more expensive it comes down to looks and whether you want the best onboard audio quality available and if you want a better overclock.

ASRock Coffee Lake Hackintosh Tips

  • Darkwake should be changed to darkwake=0 or darkwake=8 on ASRock motherboards in config.plist. If darkwake is left as default, wake from sleep may take much longer than it should or show only a black screen upon wake. Also when left as default the hack may restart instead of properly sleep/waking if darkwake isn’t set to 0 or 8. This is already done in the downloable EFI below.
  • Update ASRock BIOS to P1.50 so that USB flash drives stay connected through sleep. Earlier BIOS version such as P1.00  (which is what mine came with) will cause flash drives to eject on sleep and throw a eject warning in macOS when waked. Also on earlier BIOS versions plugging flash drives into the upper two or leftmost USB Ports on the rear IO may cause input devices to stop working so I reallly recommend updating your BIOS.
  • I used audio layout id 7 for both the ASRock Extreme4’s ALC1220 and the ASRock Pro4’s ALC892 chipset.

ASRock Z370 Hackintosh Guide Overview

This guide should work for pretty much allASRock H270/Z370 motherboards available if you’re wondering. The general guide can also be used for these motherboards, but the EFI folder I preconfigured has everything needed for the Coffee Lake iGPU on ASROCK.  I’ve also tested this with a GTX 1050 Ti and RX 560 both of which I had no trouble installing and you can get working once you get to the post-install section.

Step 1 – Creating the macOS Installer

The first step to making a hackintosh is transferring the macOS install files to a USB flash drive. To do that follow the guide: How to make a macOS flash drive installer

Step 2 – Configure EFI Boot Partition

This guide uses a preconfigured EFI the steps are very simple. To add in the preconfigured EFI we must first mount the EFI partition:

  1. Download Clover Configurator
  2. Open Clover Configurator
  3. Select Mount EFI under TOOLS
  4. Click Mount Partition for Install macOS….
  5. Click Open Partition (This is your EFI Folder)
  6. Delete the existing EFI folder if it’s in the partition
  7. Download  Hackintosher’s ASRock_Z370_iGPU_EFI.zip
  8. Unzip ASRock_Z370_iGPU_EFI.zip
  9. Copy & Paste the unzipped EFI folder to mounted partition or /Volumes/EFI
  10. Navigate to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/
  11. Right-Click Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
  12. Select Boot section on left-column of Clover Configurator
  13. Change darkwake to darkwake=8
  14. Select Devices section on left-column of Clover Configurator
  15. Change Audio Inject from 11 to 7

Extra steps i3-8100/i3-8350k:

Using an i3-8100/i3-8350k iGPU? You will need to make some changes to the EFI folder for compatibility. Follow the i3 iGPU Guide then return here after you’ve made the changes:

Get i3-8100/i3-8350k UHD 630 iGPU working in High Sierra

Step 3 – ASRock Z370 Hackintosh BIOS PreInstall Settings

Before installing macOS on your ASRock motherboard a few BIOS settings should be changed. Before doing that I  recommend you change your BIOS version to P1.50 to get avoid the USB issues I mentioned above.

  1. Restart & Enter BIOS by pressing DEL on bootup
  2. Press F6 after entering BIOS to swap to the advanced settings

Verify the following settings:

  1. OC Tweaker \ DRAM Configuration → Load XMP Setting : XMP 2.0 Profile 1
  2. Advanced \ CPU Configuration → Intel Virtualization Technology : Enabled
  3. Advanced \ Chipset Configuration → Vt-d : Disabled
  4. Advanced \ Chipset Configuration → IOAPIC 24-119 Entries: Enabled
  5. Advanced \ Storage Configuration → Sata Mode Selection: AHCI
  6. Advanced \ Super IO Configuration → Serial Port: Disabled
  7. Advanced \ USB Configuration → Legacy USB Support : Enabled
  8. Advanced \ USB Configuration → PS/2 Simulator : Disabled
  9. Advanced \ USB Configuration → XHCI Hand-off : Enabled
  10. Security \ Secure Boot → Secure Boot: Disabled
  11. Boot  → Fast Boot: Disabled
  12. Boot  → Boot From Onboard LAN: Disabled

If using iGPU:

  • Advanced \ Chipset Configuration → Primary Graphics Adapter : Onboard
  • Advanced \ Chipset Configuration → Share Memory : 128MB
  • Advanced \ Chipset Configuration → IGPU Multi-Monitor : Enabled

If using dGPU:

  • Advanced \ Chipset Configuration → Primary Graphics Adapter : PCI Express
  • Advanced \ Chipset Configuration → IGPU Multi-Monitor : Disabled

During the install we will need to boot off the UEFI: partition of the flash drive multiple times. You can either set it to Boot Option #1 in BIOS under the boot section or press F11 everytime the computer reboots to boot off the UEFI: partition of the flash drive, until the EFI is transfered to the SSD/HDD macOS is being installed on.

Step 4 – ASROCK Z370 High Sierra Install

Now we are ready to install macOS High Sierra. Then after we are finished we need to copy the EFI folder from the flash drive’s EFI partition to the boot drive’s EFI partition. If you need to walked through the install follow: High Sierra Clover Install Walkthrough

Step 5 – ASROCK Z370 Pro4 Hackintosh Post-Install

Follow the post-install section of the general guide for getting graphic cards, sleep, HDMI audio working. If you are using an Nvidia graphics card you will need EmuVariableUefi-64.efi to get acceleration and remove the graphical glitches. Also ig-platform-id needs changing to to 0x59120003, which you’ll find steps for below.

Thanks for posting this, Hackintosher!

I’m just about finished configuring an Extreme4 Z270 machine, so this would’ve been even more appreciated a couple weeks ago, haha!

Why did you decide to go with the SmallTreeIntel82576.kext rather than the IntelMausiEthernet.kext? I seem to have ethernet working with the latter.

Hi, I have AsRock Extreme4 and i3 8100 with 2x8GB RAM and tried your EFI files but I can’t get this config working. Mobo BIOS is 1.30 (can’t find 1.50 or 1.60 at AsRock site). All BIOS settings are the same as you provide.

MacOS High Sierra installer version – 13.1.05, Clover – v2.4k_r4359

Using your EFI files I see Apple logo and after passing 2/3 of loading progres bar, when macOS GUI should appears, there is black screen with looped info:
„iMac.local com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.WindowServer) : Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds”

I’ve tried connecting FullHD monitor via DVI-D and in later tries replace it with 4K monitor via HDMI with the same effect.

Config is fully working with Win10.

Looking for any help. Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

I’m pretty new to all this and have been researching for the past few months. I’m wanting to build a powerful, stable, quiet machine for creating music (logic pro x) and editing video (premiere pro). I was wondering, is there any reason i shouldn’t get an ASROCK z370 mobo, and put a i7-8700k in it? I’m trying to keep costs down and it doesn’t seem clear to me why i should buy the considerably more expensive Gigabyte mobo from your other Coffee Lake build?

I guess I wont even really be using onboard sound, although its nice to have the option. I’ll be using a focusrite 18i20 v2 (anyone had experience using one of these with a hackintosh?).

Appreciate you taking the time to make all these guides and read/answer comments!

Hi, Thank you for the info provided and the guide. Much appreciated.

I am picking parts and would like to build 8700k system for FCPX editing work. Can you please confirm/suggest if the Asrock Fatal1ty z370 Gaming ITX would work as well, and that I can use the info and the files you provided in your build?

Also, my other question is if Quicksync works with either RX580 or 560, as I would love to have this option of fast exporting in FCPX. Thank you for your answer.

I’m using the i5 8400 instead of the i3, is your zip file config.plist already spoofed?
i think i don’t need the spoofed one.

Guest

I am up and running on ASRock Z370m ITX/AC, i3-8100, Samsung 950 NVME 250GB formatted Mac OS extended journaled . The Install was very smooth, thank you for the detailed instructions. I am confused, in the EFI provided to download in this guide “shikigva=4”, you say for Coffee Lake i3 chips to use “shikigva=1” I only have the iGPU UHD 630.

A few things I have noticed.
1. I seem to have some issues with sleep/wake, and when the hackintosh sleeps I seem to lose my bluetooth keyboard and mouse.. forcing me to reboot.

2. On the hackintosh, when using the clover configurator app it starts to glitch out and freezes the whole system, making it difficult to alter the EFI .plist. Is there a better way to edit the EFI on the hackintosh?

3. Should I disable any other KEXTs from your EFI folder that I do not need that might be causing my issues?

Thanks,
Jay

Guest

I reinstalled everything and double checked all BIOS settings. Things seem to be running more smoothly, but Chrome browser will eventually freeze up the system. Also sleep kills audio until I restart. Can anyone help with these issues?

I just followed the guide and had no problems installing on an Asrock Fatal1ty z370 Gaming ITX with a 8700k CPU. I even managed to get my EVGA 1080 GPU going too! Only thing is now my system is randomly rebooting a minute or two after logging in. Have you heard of this issue before, and is there anything I can check/try?

Thanks for your guide and effort, and I’m going to build a Hackintosh with Z370 Extreme4 . When I check the bios update on ASRock, it seems that the P1.50 is for Pro4 not Extreme4. Can I download the P1.50 for my Extreme4?
thank you!

Hi thanks a bunch for ur great tutorial ! I managed to install all and running following ur tutorial and EFI.zip file. But little thing that bothers me is that when i click “About this Mac” its shows that my Processor is: 3,7 GHz Unknown. Where and what should I change in order to show properly i7 etc. ? Is in it Coffee Lake i7 8700K natively recognized ?
My specs are:
-OS: High Sierra
– MOB: ASRock z 370 Extreme 4
– CPU: i7-8700K
– GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX580 8GB Pulse

Hi, I’ve tried this with a 8700k, but the same mobo. Currently using the integrated graphics card, but will have my Palit 1050 arriving on monday. Unfortunately I was getting a black screen half way through loading the installer for High Sierra. I tried using Unibeast and managed to get OSX to install, but had a black screen problem after installing Multibeast. I didn’t really want to go the Unibeast/Multibeast route if possible. Do you have any suggestions? I’d prefer to follow your instructions/method if possible. Thanks!

Guest
Alex

Hi again, sorry I tried changing the FakeID of the IntelGFX as talked about elsewhere in the comments (to 0x59120003 in clover), as I’m using an i7. OSX is now installing (wrong resolution, but we’re no longer getting a black screen). I’ll doubtless be back with another problem later! Apologies, this is my first hackintosh. Thanks for your work.

Guest

Hi @Hackintosher I’ve just bought a Asrock Z270 extrem4, i7700k, 1050 ti. Wondering whether to send it back because of coffee lake. My priority is reliability and my usage is final cut pro, bitwig and coding. I couldn’t buy an AMD card because of the Etherium miners. I’m also planning on installing high sierra. I see that most of the people selling prebuilt boxes on ebay are using a similar hw config but sierra. What do you think?

Guest
Alex

Hi Giles & Hackintosher,

I’ve been trying for today to get my system to boot with the Palit 1050ti 4gb (fanless). I tried everything in your guide to getting Nvidia web drivers working, updated to latest HS and latest web drivers. Kept getting this error-
gIOScreenLockState 3 …
I could see this as i set my boot to verbose in clover. I found some threads about this around the internet, lots of people seem to be using the 1050ti and are having this issue. I eventually managed to boot by ticking “inject intel” in clover. I’m not entirely sure what this does, and I don’t feel like its a very clean fix. Also, now I’m booted, the hardware acceleration seems to be working, but its showing 256mb VRAM instead of 4GB in “About My Mac”. Any suggestions?

I’ll keep trying to debug this, but at least I’ve got it booted now and ran some benchmarks which seem decent. I’ll let you know how i get on, but would really appreciate if you have any input Hackintosher? Thanks!

Guest
Giles

This looks like it might be a useful thread. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/help-high-sierra-and-nvidia-webdriver-error-gioscreenlockstate-3.233198/

My build is on hold while I wait for some crucial lpx ram. Decided to just go straight in at 32gb.

Guest
Alex

Hi Giles,

Thanks for the link. I scoured the internet for that error too and tried everything but couldn’t fix it. However, as a last ditch effort i simply re-formatted and used my original thumb drive to start from scratch using Hackintoshers method. Everything worked this time (i did the whole thing using dedicated GPU rather than starting with the integrated). I have no idea what i did differently, but everything seems to work perfectly! FYI my build is the z370 Pro4, 8700k CPU, 16gb ram (atm), samsung 960 m.2. Might be some encouragement for you to go ahead with your build.

Guest
Giles

Hmm I am very tempted. Of course the ram I just bought isn’t on their approved list! But it is just the 16GB version that Hackintosher used. Could you try using chrome and final cut pro and sleep to see if it crashes?

Guest
Giles

Stuff it I’ve pulled the trigger on the coffee lake kit. I’m sure enough people are using this stuff to iron out the kinks.

Guest
Alex

Nice. I’ll put my machine through the paces of final cut. I ran cinebench and geekbench and got great results. Plus im using a fanless GPU (my machine is for audio, logic x specifically). My focusrite 18i20v2 worked out of the box too. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Really bad performance from my wifi card i bought though. I am quite far from my router, but my imac does much better than the hack for this. Im using a TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 N900

Guest
giles

I’m a sysadmin by trade and I would never use wireless at home for a workstation. It’s a shared medium so you’re always going to get unpredictable performance. Powerline plugs work so well so you won’t have trailing cables everywhere. I had a look at that gpu actually, gets well reviewed but I suspect that final cut will just not perform well with nvidia so I will have to fight it out with the crypto peeps for an overpriced 580 or vega.

Guest
Alex

Only remaining problem is that my Focusrite 18i20v2 will cut out/crackle very occasionally for a few milleseconds. Not good for an audio machine! I’m trying to debug this and will let you know how it goes. My money is on some kind of USB related problem… I wonder if Hackintosher has any ideas?

Vic
Guest

@Hackintosher,

Over in your Coffee Lake guide (https://hackintosher.com/guides/coffee-lake-hackintosh-overview/), under the section “Coffee Lake UHD 630 Graphics”, you write “If upgrading from a Kaby Lake CPU you can also remove -disablegfxfirmware under Boot > Args in config.plist if you have it as it’s not necessary on Coffee Lake.”

However, in this guide (ASROCK Z370 Extreme4 / Pro4 Hackintosh High Sierra Guide), the Clover config you provide has “disablegfxfirmware” enabled/checked. Why the contradiction? Did you discover some issue since the former guide was written?

Vic
Guest

@Hackintosher

Thanks for this tutorial. I have an ASROCK z370 Pro4 and an Intel i5-8400. Working off your config and another one from tonymacx86, I was able to get the hackintosh to boot. Most everything seems to be working but the mouse stops working after a short time. I have to unplug it and plug it in again to get it working. But that only lasts for about 30-60 seconds before the mouse dies again. Strangely, the keyboard works fine.

Any thoughts on what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Vic

Nevermind. Seems like the problem is with my mouse and macOS X in general. Time to call Logitech.

I’m considering going with the Asrock Z370 TAICHI – It’s just a level above Extreme4 and looks like it should also be compatible. Has anyone tried out the Taichi board?

Guest
Giles

hmm my build was all fine until post installation I installed the nvidia 1050 card, selected inject nvidia and installed the web drivers, now it boots up with a vga like screen until the loading bar is about 2/3’s done and just hangs. I did update macos to the latest supplemental release and disabled the onboard card.

Guest

I’ve looked over the AMD graphics installation notes again and it looks like the way to go for me at least.

Hello Hackintosher! I built an Extreme4 Z370 Hackintosh (8700k, GTX 1080) a couple weeks before this guide went up so there were a couple helpful tips in here, especially darkwake=8.

I’m just now getting around to trying to fix iMessage and Airdrop but I’m not sure if I want to replace my current config.plist as everything else seems to be working fine. Which lines did you change to make iMessage work OOB? Same for Airdrop if you don’t mind.

Hello Guys,

I need some tips. I have a High SIerra bootable Stick with the EFI settings from hackintosher. The Stick works fine on a Z170 Board and a i5-6600k on it. So the stick works fine.

On my System:
ASROCK z370 Pro4 and an Intel i5-8600k (BIOS 1.70) the USB-stick wont boot correctly. It stops loading on the Apple Logo. I have setup all BIOS functions in the hackintosher guide.

The only issue I have is with sound via DP to the monitor. I have two dual monitors setup via DP. No sound over DP however I have working sound over headphones. Can you please offer some guidance.

Oh and one more thing I noticed sometimes my microphone voice is distorted and very heavy.
I have two Line In in settings under sound/Input and when i switch back & forth the distortion goes away. Very strange but I can live with it 🙂

Thank you for this awesome guide, was very helpful in my first hackintosh high Sierra build:

◦ ASRock Extreme4
◦ i7-8700K
◦ 32GB RAM
◦ MSI DUKE GeForce GTX 1080
◦ Corsair RM850x
◦ Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
◦ SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5″ 500GB (for windows 10 only)
◦ ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
◦ Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-02
◦ About this Mac: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017)

Everything is working as in a real Mac and had no problems installing High Sierra 10.13.3 Supplemental Update.

The only miner issues that I have:

1. Can’t update clover to the latest version in clover configurator, I get “This package is incompatible with this version of Mac…..”

2. For some reason the dvd tray opens up when booting the system.

I have no Keyboard or Mouse input after following the suggestions. i7-8700k / ASRock z370 Exterem4.

I’ve replaced the EFI folder within the Clover boot with the ASRock_Z370_iGPU_EFI.zip contents.

I’m 10 hours in trying to get this to work with various “solutions” provided around the net, and it seems I can install 10.13.2, but as soon as I updated that to the most recent, I lost mouse and keyboard control. I reformatted and tried to install 10.13.4, same issue. I found a PS2 klist which got the keyboard working, but of course, that does me no good because I don’t have a COMMAND key on my keyboard which prevents me from completing the setup.

I have no USB support, with any solution I have found.

I’m in the same position. I can’t get 10.13.4 to work. For me nothing displays, my monitor goes to sleep on boot. Did you have any luck with sleep wake? I got it to work but on wake all usb drives are disconnected. 1.8 bios.

Thank you so much, got my system running great with your EFI and the NVIDIA guides.

Only thing now is USB hard drives won’t mount or show up at all, anyone have a fix for this?

Just looking for some confirmation on my thinking. I am about to do a build with the ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac WiFi and i5-8400 and iGPU.

I’m planning on using the EFI from this post but since I will be installing OSX 10.13.4 I assume I should go though and update all of the included kext files to the latest version. Is this sound thinking?

Hi, I am planning to use my pc as a hackintosh. I just wanted to know if my pc will be compatible with your guide, these are the parts from my pc:

-Intel i5-8600K
-Asrock z370 extreme4
-16GB Corsair Vengance lpx 3000
-Msi Gtx 1070

Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks
Ali

I struggled for the longest time to get my audio devices to register. When I changed my onboard audio settings in BIOS from AUTO to ENABLED, it finally worked! Hope this tip helps someone.

Thanks for posting!
I’m new to hackintoshing.
I just wonder that i5-8400 is compatible with your EFI zip and Asrock Z370 Extreme 4.
