Is there anything that I missed, I cant get this to work properly, just throwing FakePCIID.kext and the injector into kext wizard isnt the only required step I guess ?


You need to fake one of the supported GPU IDs (191e, 1912 etc) either via DSDT or via Clover's config.plist /Devices/Arbitrary injection. It's described on the github page of FakePCIID.kext

Hi friend, I find it hard to swallow that something with the word "failed" seems normal.

The alternative to host side scheduling is what is preventing sleep because firmware is not initialised.

Moreover if USB were the culprit then why would sleep work when IGFX is swapped in favour of NVIDA and USB is left untouched? Besides I read somewhere that someone had it working in 10.11.3

This thing needs someone like Pike or Apple.


The SKL drivers are still in development / debug mode, the verbose screen was never meant to be seen by normal users, especially on a macintosh. Failed doesn't mean something is broken, failed means one function didn't found the required parameters in order to run and thus the next one will be tried. Even Pike said in some comment on his blog that it's "fine".


I didn't see your signature, was under the impression you have a laptop. There are some people reporting wake problems with your specific board.


The debug process is simple, check console app for the log during the time interval you tried to wake the PC up. Go from there. Alternatively, remove the GLDriver.bundle from extensions to disable QE/CI and see if wake works then, if not then try removing SKLGraphics.kext. Alternatively, check if the sound gets initiated (set volume feedback in settings and change the volume) even if the screen remains black, or install some VNC app and try to connect with another device to it, if you succeed in reaching the desktop via VNC even if the screen is black then it's an HDMI issue that might require FB kext patching.


@denicio I see iMac17, are you also a desktop user? Changing those settings won't affect much, messed with them on my laptop a while back, only 1 or 2 of them actually triggered a KP at boot, the rest had no noticeable effect in terms of functionality or benchmarking scores, but it may be different for desktop users.  


P.S Scheduler interface revision default value is 1 on macbooks starting with BDW driver implementation on 10.11.X

That verbose output seems to be normal.


Sleep/Wake is likely related to USB not graphics. Either way, you will need a properly patched DSDT for sleep/wake to work properly.

Here are my patched DSDT and SSDT 


Just have LPC patch installed.



Do you still have the graphics artifacts on the left side of the menubar?

Is there any fix for it?





Still got them. They go away if I boot into windows/linux/os x installer usb and reboot back, but once something goes fullscreen they appear again. Have no idea why that is... personally I just set the menu bar to dark mode (system preferences > general > dark) so it's less visible.


Maybe it's a SKL driver problem, or an EDID related thing like the ones on L502x on certain panels. I'm waiting for 10.11.5 to be released, if they're still present, I'll do some tests.

Clover 3354 shows the correct intel HD 530, you should also delete the patched .bundle and restore the original. Later versions of Clover show intel Unknown, i don't know why this happens or why this isn't fixed yet


Because for some reason that is beyond me, they changed the correct ID from a previous version, to one that makes no sense in the next revision (191B - > 191A). I've reported it but they didn't take notice.



@wen1 what's your smbios? You need to use MBP11,1 or another recent macbook smbios to get hdmi output. Take note tough, your CPU geekbench score will be lower when NOT using an iMac17,1 smbios.
