Maybe Apple intends to only roll out APFS for systems with SSDs? Leaving systems with mechanical HDDs on HFS...

#2412357 Nec/Renesas USB 3.0 on P8P67 Deluxe Rev 3

I use mXHCD.kext and it works. Far from stable though. But at least my USB 3.0 external storage works at full speed.

#2360402 With "PNLF" internal display turns off after apple logo

I know. But where does (did?) that zero come from? I obviously never set brightness to zero before shutdown. Must have been nvram corruption (Clover issue?) Once again, I haven't had that problem in some time.

#2354226 HD3000 freezing in Sierra

Posted by Dr. Hurt on 22 January 2017 - 08:00 AM

UPDATE: I've done a lot of experimenting and researching and here are my findings: - Freezes are caused by a mismatch between the ports defined in the driver's frame buffer table and the physical ports in the laptop.I fixed them by loading the second frame buffer table which limits the driver to 1 LVDS port. I don't use HDMI or VGA so I don't mind.I think the same could be done by patching the first table to match BOTH port number and type. I prefer DSDT since it's cleaner."AAPL,snb-platform-id", Buffer (0x04){0x00, 0x00, 0x02, 0x00    //load the 2nd frame buffer table (0x02)                 }, - Artifacts are caused by IGPU memory corruption due a clover bug.Clover somehow messes with the BIOS-reserved memory for IGPU.apianti and Slice know about the issue and couldn't fix it (very long ago) Slide=0 as boot-arg reduces the artifacts significantly.Installing 8GB of RAM also seems to fix...

Can't wait to get the working kext Thank you very much, you are so kind Here's the kext with the Sierra fix and compiled using xcode 8 with Sierra as a target. Tested on my system and it works.  I'll probably be updating my ALPS driver to add V6 support since my driver has a more up to date base. Works better in my case. I copy the same clover folder that is working from the usb flash to EFI partition, and add the clover entry to boot menu,after that it loads the clover main ui but when I choose the macOS partition nothing happens I don't know why its not working, the clover folder work in usb flash but not work form EFI partition! Probably because you're using UEFI. I would recommend you switch to legacy. EDIT: THIS DRIVER IS ONLY FOR ALPS V6 Dr. Hurt I have problems installing Mac OS Sierra get the following message:com.apple.xpc.launchd (org.ntp.sntp.134) Warning Service exit With abnormal code:1 You can help me I use your...

I will try this later, but I want to move clover to EFI partionnow I boot to osx from your clover folder, I but it to a flash and use it but I want to move the clover to EFI partion like Mohammed did in the first page of this guide, I make the EFI partion like this:newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/disk0s1mkdir /Volumes/EFImount_msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFIbut when I copy clover from the flash to this partion its not working If you format the hard drive as GPT using disk utility, you do NOT need to reformat the EFI partition.All you need to do is run the clover installer, select customize and select ESP option. Then use EFI mounter utility to mount the EFI partition and replace the Clover folder. As for the ALPS kernel panic, it's probably caused by the old version of xcode I'm using.

I found the source for the kext so I'll update it for you (later today). EDIT:Here's ALPS V6 kext (credits to radu for source) updated for Sierra. Tell me how it goes.

Now the installer is working!but I have a problemthat the usb mouse and touchpad not working in the installer and the brightness is very low I can't see anything!I use inject kexts from cloverplease help me to solve these problem also what about SSDT file? you didn't include in your clover files Are you using the Clover folder I provided? Did you add or remove anything? (kexts, DSDT) Clover automatically creates SSDT (if the option is enabled in config.plist) USB mouse:Is it plugged into a USB2.0 (black) or 3.0 (blue)? USB 3.0 won't work without a properly patched DSDT like mine.You can use the e-sata port next to hdmi port as an extra USB2.0 port since our laptop only has 1 USB2.0 port. Touchpad:Boot in verbose and look if it says "ALPS touchpad driver started"Try clicking F3 or Fn+F3 to enable the touchpad if its disabledIs the keyboard working? Brightness:Delete the backlight kext from the kexts>other folder

Now I will try to make the installer again on the flash and then I will try what you told me, it will take some timeIf you want, I can give you my current working DSDT for 10.10? If your DSDT is working with 10.10, why are you even trying to use mine? You could just use it with Sierra.Do you have a problem with your DSDT? And no, if you want a new patched DSDT, I'll need a clean newly extracted DSDT. @Dr Hurt Please also tell us, how is fan doing on Sierra?..I am on El-Capitan, I can hear fan making sound just doing simple browsing, Youtube on Chrome with 10 tabs. Firefox become jittery at this kind of usage. I have never had any problems with heat or fan on my N5110. If there's a difference in fan speed between Windows and Mac, it could mean that you have a problem with your power management (DSDT+SSDT)

I've tried to install Sierra with your method but it's not working for me! When I select the Sierra installer from clover it displays Apple logo for 1 minute then it displays 'stop sign' and nothing happens! When I tried to do -v it displays blank black screen! I suspect that your DSDT not working for me, Because I have intel only and I don't have Nvidia or amd gpu Can you make a compatible DSDT for me please? Try deleting the DSDT from the ACPI/Patched folder and tell me what happens.  If it starts booting, then it was indeed the DSDT, in which case I'll need a clean DSDT extracted Clover, Windows, or Linux.

#2283502 'Blank' Trackpad Setting in Sierra

Posted by Dr. Hurt on 23 September 2016 - 07:11 PM

It's a known issue with the voodoops2 driver. No fix yet as of writing this. A temporary workaround is replacing the prefpane with the el capitan version, which works but settings are not preserved across reboots.

my cpu is i5-2410M with intel gpuI don't know how to patch DSDT, I'm using the DSDT from this guide and using osx 10.10 nowcan help me to make the right DSDT please We have the same CPU which means the DSDT will probably work with your laptop.Create a USB installer, install Clover to it (using boot0af, BiosBlockIO), then replace the clover folder created on the USB with the one I uploaded.   I use Core i7 2670QM with 16GB ram, you think that works well MacOS Sierra on my system?   When I use the bios stock I can not boot from the USB. In clover that option should I use to be legacy. The audio does not work in El Capitan 10.11.6  I don't know if the DSDT will work with your system. Install Clover on a USB stick (see below), try my files, and tell me. If not I'll patch your DSDT for you.The audio will work in Sierra with the files I uploaded. Recommendations for Clover:- Use a separate USB stick from the installer.- Make sure the stick is n...

Thank you very much for your efforts How I can use your DSDT with my cpu Is there is anything to do to make it work? You're welcome. I don't think you can use my DSDT with your CPU. Try it with the installer USB you create, see if it boots!! But you should patch a DSDT extracted from your system.

what do you mean by everything? Well, everything I use: Graphics Acceleration, Audio, USB2.0/3.0, Touchpad with gestures, Webcam, Card Reader, Wifi, sleep and wake, battery status... Works surprisingly well after a clean install of the final release of Sierra. Had lots of lagging with the beta. I actually put a lot of effort into patching the DSDT, updating the touchpad driver, and finding the right drivers. Hello Dr. Hurt,You can provide the patched bios Thanks Unfortunately, I no longer have the file. You can use the original stock BIOS and enable CPU power management patch in clover. It'll work just as well.

Sierra Installation Pack: Fortunately, this laptop still remains one of the most hackintoshable laptops available. EVERYTHING WORKS with Sierra (edit: Well, almost everything  :blush:) This will only work properly with systems having the same specs as mine:Core i5 with 4GB of RAM, nvidia (disabled in DSDT), ALPS V3 touchpad, Atheros 9825 combo card It has everything needed to run Sierra without the need to install a single kext to the system partition. Everything is injected/patched thru clover before boot giving a system that is more resilient to updates. Known issues:- Keyboard Volume/Brightness/multimedia shortcuts don't work (VoodooPS2, not specific to this laptop)- Trackpad prefpane is blank. El Cap version works, but doesn't save settings across reboot.- Bluetooth is flaky (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I don't use it)- HDMI not working Notes:- I'm using a patched non-UEFI bios with Clover booting in legacy mode. Attache...
