Intel 8 and 9 series motherboard OSX86 (hackintosh) computers and hibernation:


Hibernation is a bit different than normal sleep. It is deep sleep which is the power independent sleep. That means even the power is down, your data is safe during deep sleep, just like a shutdown. The need for removing the power cable (ie. moving your desktop to elsewhere) or if the power source is not a UPS, then hibernate would be a secure way of sleep. You like it after you have it.


If you want to try, keep on reading:

>> Only for 8 and 9 series desktop computers.

>> Only for Clover UEFI

>> You should have a proper configured installation for normal sleep (sleep on RAM - S3 Sleep) if you want to try deep sleep.

-- (Not needed for iATKOS Y / M installations) Mount EFI partition and delete OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi from drivers64UEFI folder, unmount EFI partition and restart your computer.

-- Open Terminal and enter:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 29

-- Click "Sleep" by Apple menu.

-- After it is fully down, press Power button.

-- It will start normally and you will see your hibernated volume on Clover boot screen (as in the screenshot)

-- Press enter. It will wake up from deep sleep and you will jump to login screen or to your desktop without Apple boot screen.


>> If fails, it will just go into restart loop. If so you will have to cancel hibernation by pressing space bar, then it will boot normally.

Enter this on Terminal to disable hibernation:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0





>> For any kind of OSX86 computer with successful normal sleep:

If your computer goes into reboot loops after hours of normal sleep, cancel hibernate boot by clover space bar menu and apply these lines below after normal system boot. These changes will disable auto-hibernate after long sleep hours.

-- Open Terminal and enter:

sudo pmset -a standby 0

sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0

 (These are applied on iATKOS M, iATKOS Y and iATKOS EC installations for our users not to lose data.)


New revision iATKOS SR is ready! System version is 10.12.2 (Build 16C68).

- 10.12.2 revision iATKOS SR images will be sent to new requests from now on.
- Existing iATKOS SR users can request their new revision images by just filling and sending us iATKOS SR request form.

Last few days' requests will be processed tomorrow (GMT0) and they all will be .2 revision. Delay happened due to 10.12.2 revision.



Well, 2016 has not been a light in many aspects, we wish a better one for all.



iATKOS SR now supports installations on password protected disks (a.k.a. macOS FileVault) on both single physical drives and Fusion drives.
Initial FileVault support: @slice, @ath, @download-fritz, @vit9696

All operations are automated as usual. Also, we have added an app for Fusion Drive operations.

Very soon..




We have been occupied with Sierra lately.

There are many issues with it as it is pretty new. USB problems (like 10.11.x), Core2Duo/Quad CPU computer incompatibilities, Broadcom WiFi support etc.. Some of these issues make it impossible to install retail. We are preparing iATKOS SR which includes the solutions for most.

No time frame, no ETA but we are close.


Last few days' requests will be processed very soon, sorry for inconvenience.

New revision iATKOS EC is ready! System version is 10.11.5 (Build 15F34).

- 10.11.5 revision iATKOS EC images will be sent to new requests from now on.
- Existing iATKOS EC users can request their new revision images by just filling and sending us iATKOS EC request form.

Last few days' requests will be processed tomorrow (GMT0) and they all will be .5 revision. Delay happened due to 10.11.5 revision..

Existing iATKOS EC users with skylake graphics will receive new revision without requesting.



Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.4, improved the support for Skylake Graphics. USB system is more stable and better with .4

>> We will soon release 10.11.4 revision of iATKOS EC.

Here is an example of a skylake desktop computer with Intel HD 530 Graphics:





Apple has released 10.11.3 update. Backup your important data before trying the update.


- To update your existing El Capitan installation to 10.11.3, use App Store to try the update rather than the full 1.47 GB dmg updater. This way, your computer will have more chance to survive after the update :)

>> Good news, iATKOS EC installations on Skylake computers can apply the update (by using App Store as mentioned above).

>> If you used "USB Port Patch A" package during installation, then you may lose some of your USB ports after update. Try re-installing iATKOS EC with "USB Port Patch B" package and then apply the update after installation.

>> Some computers which can not operate without "USB Port Patch A" should not apply the update. We will release 10.11.3 revision of iATKOS EC soon.

>> After updating, do not forget to delete AppleHDA.kext that came with the update.

>> After updating, as usual, NVIDIA Web Driver users will need to update it too.




- 1st priority of our operations is development, as it always had been. Team is trying to give you the best!

- 2nd priority is release requests with priority service and questions/help requests of priority service users.

- The 3rd one is release requests with default service.

- 4th one: Any kind of questions/help requests related to iATKOS M / Y / EC.


Due to our operation algorithm, especially in times of development from time to time, we may delay responding to your requests 2-3 days more except for the priority service. We'll get back to your requests and questions eventually, we do not miss even one of them. This is all for making a better release.
