In Topic: [GUIDE] USB Fix El Capitan 10.11

02 October 2015 - 11:32 AM



first of all i wanna thank all contributors for their work. helped me a lot to figure out my usb problems. after 3 days i finally got most of my usb-ports working on an GA-Z87X-D3H.


There still are some things i don't understand yet, but i have little time at the moment. Writing again soon.


But, there is one thing which comes to my mind because a lot of customers have problems with Skylake and Win 7 (working as it-supporter).


Intel has dropped EHCI support in their new chips. A good reference is the data sheet for the 100er series (chapter 34):



Maybe Apple changed the USB subsystem because of upcoming Skylake-Macs. Maybe there is some useful information in there. 


For Windows 7, USB is not working during installation oob. You have to patch your installation media or change some BIOS settings (depending on board manufacturer).

i think you have to inject your EDID via clover:


I had the same error on my vaio... blackscreen on internal display when entering gui mode. Maybe this helps.

Happy hacking :)

maybe i can help you with my experiences on installing Mavericks on an VPCEB4C5E.


First i made a bootable stick with this guide:



I only installed Clover and FakeSMC. NullPower is not needed on my machine.


Then i obtained the config.plist for Clover from this guide because on this machine you have to inject EDID, else you get a blackscreen when loading the GUI:



I booted the stick with "-v -UseKernelCache=No -f USBBusFix=Yes"


I hadn't had any luck for a few times because i missed to install PS/2 drivers for the keyboard  :blush:


However, boot time until the installer was loaded was about 20 or 30 minutes. In this time the notebook dir _nothing_. Maybe you just should gave to wait. Last message on my Vaio was the line with Bluetooth.


Edit: Please also try to plug in an external USB keyboard.
