It's additional PCI card and requires UEFI driver to work. I guess the driver is already on the card as option ROM, but maybe it is not enabled in BIOS. There should be some options like CSM Support, Boot Mode Selection, Storage Boot Option Control or similar.

Hi dmazar, I am using your AptioFix2 + "nvram fix" (RT data to MemMapIO) efi file posted on projectosx.com. After I get rid of the EmuVariableUefi-64.efi, I could not enable "Find My Mac" functionality in Settings. Is that Nvram related problem? And could it be fixed from your aptio efi?

 

Thanks!

I do not know about "Find My Mac", sorry, never tried that. Is that related to iCloud or iMessage?

 

People had issues with iMessage when they switched from old AptioFix+EmuVariable to new AptioFix (with real nvram) and had to reactivate the account or change ROM and MLB values.

 

Can you login to any of those?

The "Find My Mac" issue was somehow solved by system itself. That is ok now.

 

For iMessage part, I am lucky with no problem switch from  AptioFix+EmuVariable to new AptioFix.  :D Maybe it is because I use the AptioFix2 (with RT to MemMapIO)? Both ROM/MLB are persistent shown from the iMessageDebug.

 

You mentioned we need slide=xxx to allocate large amount free memory for kernel and other stuff to load. But how large would be necessary? 

 

This is part my memory map, and slide=0 is used:

BS_code    0000000000100000 - 000000000010ffff 0000000000000010 0000000000000000 000000000000000f
available  0000000000110000 - 000000000f0fffff 000000000000eff0 0000000000000000 000000000000000

So I guess the kernel will overwrite the BS_code part, right? Will it cause any problem? So far, I haven't met any yet.

 

 

Thanks!
