Hello Hackintosh lovers. If you are new to Hackintosh, you may wonder if you could get or download the EFI folder that works on your specific build. Well, there are many people out there that willing to share their EFI folder. On this page, you will find many EFI folder for different motherboards. Personally, I would recommend you try to build your own EFI for your specific hardware. But, you can also use the EFI below as your starting point. And then you can fine-tune it to match your needs.

These are the basic EFIs that should be bootable for the following hardware. But some other features are may or may not working and you will need to do some post-install configurations. It would be great if you can post your experience after using these EFIs in the comment section.

This project is a new and updated branch of the Yosemite tree and is targetted at OS X 10.11 El Capitan with SIP support, automatic installer detection and fake board-id injection for unsupported models of the MacPro and MacBook Pro.
All downloads of boot.efi should be done from this project page. All other sources are unsupported.
Download your copy of the prebuild (32-bit) version of boot.efi for El Capitan (compiled on Microsoft Windows 10 with Microsoft Visual Studio 2015) with a black background and white Apple logo now, and verify the download by entering (either one) in a terminal window:
Or download the one for legacy hardware, with a grey background and logo for your Mac Pro and verify the download by entering (either one) in a terminal window:
Note: If the output is different, then your copy of boot.efi should not be used!
Don't want a prebuilt copy of boot.efi then compile the source code yourself, with either Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 or 2015. The latter requires you to update the solution files, but that should be done automatically in the MS Visual Studio IDE.
Note: See also Compiling-Instructions
This project would not have been possible without the help of Peter Holbrook, Mike Boss and a number of other people. Peter did all compiling and Mike ran dozens of test builds that Peter pushed out over at forums.macrumors.com Awesome work guys. Job well done!
I'd also like to thank everyone else whoh helped with testing our nightly builds. Thank you so much!
If you need help with the setup then please visit this macrumor thread. Developers, or people who need help with compiling boot.efi themself, can visit this macrumors developer thread.
Note: I myself don't own any unsupported Apple hardware with a 32-bit EFI implementation, so I can probably do not much for you, but there may be others to help you.
