Hey guys, almost done my 9560 but having issues getting the DW1560 to work.  Without it, I can't download my apps, use iMessage etc.  I've been at this a few days now and have reached an impasse.........  

 

Check my efi in post here http://www.insanelym...13#entry2518412

 

I'm using DW1560 just fine, make sure you have same kext and proper edits to your config. I noticed I don't have that kext firmware repo kext you have but instead have the firmware data one instead.

you dont have nv_disable=1 in your config.plist... you can remove NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext and youll be able to boot fine.... if not. then the nvidia card must work.

 

have you loaded the web drivers for it?

 

have you checked ioreg?

 

NvidiaGraphicsFixup is not just for NVIDIA. There's actually multiple uses for it besides making a NVIDIA card work.

The reason for our laptops using this is stated clearly in the original guide created by KNNSpeed. Quoted below.

 

NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext - Enables video out on the HDMI port by causing the board-id check in AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy to fail and default to the “none” ConfigMap. (https://sourceforge....agraphicsfixup/)

 

Just like how a desktop can use this kext it to avoid black screen on boot by using a ConfigMap of "none" our laptops can use this method so that our HDMI out will function properly.

 

yeah i know that it doesnt work because of optimus...

 

thats fine, u can continue to run an un-optimized system.

 

sorry for wanting to help you.

 

Don't be sorry for wanting to help. If he removes that kext, how would you get the HDMI working the "optimized" way? I'm fascinated by your tremendous knowledge on how our hack's components are setup to function. Please enlighten us.

Hi Everyone I'm trying to make a fresh install of High Sierra I follow the guide for the XPS 9550

 

I'm booting on usb and having this :

 

"ACPI Error: RE_NOT_FOUND" issues.  The final line reading: "ACPI Error: 27 table load failures, 25 successful".

 

Does anyone know how to fix it ?

 

Thanks for your help

 

Hey man you PM'd me about my 9560 and sleep and also installation error which I told you to come here. I just noticed now, reading your post here that you're following the guide for the 9550, can I ask why? You have a 9560 don't you? You can follow this awesome guide KNNSpeed setup for us and in the past few pages or so you can find out the changes for high sierra. I believe one of my posts a few pages back even includes a EFI. Also listing your detailed hardware in your signature would a great benefit to you and the people trying to help you.

It's caused by APFS+TRIM boot delays. You can fix that by specifying a longer FirstPollDelay (I use 16 seconds).

 

Wow, what an easy fix, thanks TheRacerMaster!

 

For those on HS here is how I accomplished changing FirstPollDelay from the default 4000ms to 16000ms.

 

Show contents of ACPIBatteryManager.kext

Edit: info.plist

Navigate to: IOKitPersonalities > ACPI Battery Manager > Configuration > FirstPollDelay

Change the values 4000 to 16000

BIOS 1.7.0 is safe (breaks nothing) over 1.6.2.

 

Can semi-confirm on High Sierra, everything seems up and normal.

 

I've had minor issues with the battery/power percentages not updating on the menu bar for a bit since updating to HS but nothing else. Glad you guys are still around!
