You must be landing here because your Ethernet port doest work. Don’t worry, here’s how to enable Ethernet in Hackintosh. I use AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext for my Vanilla hack. This kext also should works in most onboard Ethernet brand out there.
You can download the Ethernet kext that I use later. Because first you need to mount the Clover EFI partition.
Mounting EFI Partition
The easiest way to mount EFI partition is by using Clover Configurator App. You can download here:
Install Clover Configurator App by drag it to Application Folder. Open the app and at it will ask you to mount the EFI partition click ‘Mount EFI partition.’
Next at the TOOLS page, again click on Mount EFI partition button in right bottom. You’ll be ask for password. Enter your admin password to mount EFI Partition. After Clover Configurator app mount the EFI, you’ll see the ‘Open partition’ button. Click to open the EFI partition.
Then, inside the EFI Partition go to EFI > EFI > CLOVER > 10.12 folder if your macOS version is Sierra. 10.13 for High sierra and so on. Next you need to download the Ethernet kext to put on here.
Download Ethernet kext
Here you can download the Ethernet kext that I use which are AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext. This kext should works on most machine.
To make it works, close Clover Configurator app and any other running apps. And restart your computer.
Ethernet port now should work
After restarting your hackintosh your Ethernet kext now should works. Go to Sytem Preferences > Network there you should see the Ethernet port in your system Network.
So plug the Ethernet cable to your hackintosh and in the Network settings it should turn to green. And open your browser to test it out by browsing the web. If still doest work try using another Ethernet kext and use the same method to install it on EFI partition.
It should works if you follow my vanilla method on how to install hackintosh. Or any other vanilla hackintosh method. Ok, that’s it! Hope this short post is useful. And Happy hackintoshing 🙂
