You can Try this config  :)@christ1111 Your config.plist looks almost OK. As far as I am concerned, but...1. if no DSDT is present in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched it should be named BIOS.aml in config.plist2. According to the Clover WiKi - drop tables should be added in the ACPI/SSDT section not ACPI/DSDT....<key>ACPI</key><dict><key>ResetAddress</key><string>0xCF9</string><key>ResetValue</key><string>0x06</string><key>DSDT</key><dict><key>Name</key><string>BIOS.aml</string><key>HaltEnabler</key><true/><key>SlpSmiAtWake</key><true/><key>Debug</key><false/><key>DropOEM_DSM</key><false/><key>Fixes</key><dict><key>NewWay_80000000</key><true/><key>FixDarwin_0002</key><true/...

I'm really not sure about this, but I tried again, when it is patched I will get when running kextcache a message: WARNING - Invalid signature for kext "/System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext" But that's it, a warning. And it loads successfully with the modded Info. And suppose really all kexts must be signed, isn't a signature required also for AppleKextExcludeList.kext?  Hi Pene, CVad has produced an application named Kext Utility, that auto updates OSKextSigExceptionList. For users on 10.9.2 beta it is necessary to update the plist as advised by Pene, something similar here works fine without errors but a warning, as the stock one has info for the dual MacPro GPUs. WARNING - Invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext "/System/Library/Extensions/AppleKextExcludeList.kext"WARNING - Invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext "/System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext"kext com.Accusys.driver.Acxxx...

@ameris_cyning Suggestion  - you are really pushing your luck here, for starters I would remove your red text and take a break. Yes it is all free, you cannot even donate to the Clover Devs, I would always consider it better to be grateful for what you have rather than bemoan that which you do not have. A simple and profound law of the Universe, as by saying thank you, you might receive more in return..... Dwell on it!

Hey tonydickinson,   I own a P8Z77-V LX and I downgraded from 2204 to 1603 ROM, now I can save the NVRAM settings. I found out where the settings are stored for my board:   000| |CEF5B9A3-476D-497F-9FDC-E98143E0422C|00180048|01FFB8|RAW   That's my NVRAM firmware volume ; ) if you wan't to I can try to burn in your settings permanently but it would be a good idea when you send me your smbios.plist settings, so our settings wouldn't overlap ; ) and I know what's your machine settings that should be stored.   Btw. ASUS has no nvramsmi module, those seetings must be stored in any other module.   Even I'd like to know if you're able to flash a modified bios ??? ; ) then we know if a mod is worth the effort.   regardz Hi Felix - I like your handle. Thanks for the offer, that is what I suspected, however my nvram I would expect to contain far more than just smbios (I am a Clover UEFI User) A navram -p shows me this (some security details removed).  ...

Posted by tonydickinson on 21 September 2013 - 01:15 AM

@STLVNUB Xpamamadeus et all. Thanks for the excellent guide and tools. Ozmosis with MacMini6,2 installed with only fakesmc issues but fixed with Kozleks update. It is really quite impressive to be able to boot "natively" into OSX. The only issue i have it is not always straight forward to make desired changes easily and without risk. Clover to me is very easy and making changes very easy. But thank you guys an interesting project and an easy to follow thread.

Kudos to Xpamamadeus for your initial and continued work with Ozmosis and to the other guys who appear to have contributed a great deal and I am referring to Stlvnub and AnV, and others too numerous to mention. A great way to go and I might have a go one day on my Asus Z88. Great work guys - it is amazing what can be achieved, when you set your mind to it.

Posted by tonydickinson on 22 August 2013 - 11:26 AM

Mr Toleda - you have helped so many people.  I am assuming that you are trying UEFI boot. Firstly in your EFI/CLOVER directory, please ensure that your config.plist resides in this location. Please also check that any details contained in the OEM folder are removed as multiple DSDT/SSDT/ and config.plists can exist. Please make sure the the EFI/CLOVER/themes directory has a valid theme loaded and it is the same as shown in the config.plist under GUI. Please have a try with this version, but the theme name will need to be changed as will the ScreenResolution if 2560X1440 is not correct. in boot args slide=0 is no longer required as is MLB no longer required. I would also suggest you use the latest version of Clover (1979) for this test as there have been some positive changes recently.  I would also suggest that you try it without the SSDTs initially as they can be added later. You might also initially try with GenerateIvyStates without the SSDTS as the tuning can...

Same here.HDMI not work with HD6850. Even tried to use DVI to HDMI cable.Hope this issue wouldn't maintain till GM release.  AUGUST 4, 2013 Resolving the DP4 HDMI hangPeople with a HDMI (only) display plugged-in at boot time, may run into a system hang with OS X 10.9 DP4. We here resolved this with a workaround – modified one of the frame buffers:03 00 22 0D 00 03 03 03 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 40 99 14 00 00 99 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 06 10 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 05 12 00 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 04 14 00 00 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 FF 00 01 00 01 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01 01 00 00 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00Apple is probably going to fix the HDMI problems in OS X 10.9 DP5 or with a Graphics Update for DP4 but until then this workaround can be used.

Posted by tonydickinson on 01 August 2013 - 06:59 AM

Do you use DSDT.aml? In my case, wake is fine with DSDT.aml in r1888. I've abandoned the PatchesDSDT solution, because when trying to add a device or method under their host device, the "parentheses" of their host device would be changed.For example, if I add a Method (_DSM) under Device (GFX0), which is under Scope (_SB)/Device (PCI0)/Device (PEG0), then the parentheses of _SB, PCI0, PEG0 and GFX0 would all be changed. The underline is what I mean "parentheses." Wrong parentheses would cause DSDT unable to be read by system, and cause Clover unable to boot. Yesterday, I spent almost a whole day working on PatchesDSDT. Even had I fixed all the parentheses stuff, Clover still died at black screen before I am able to see the beautiful apple boot logo. This is what I've done, you can take a look if you like: config.plist.zipI think Slice or one of the Clover Devs are the guys t...

Posted by tonydickinson on 26 July 2013 - 12:23 AM

It would make more sense if they disabled posting, aka leaving forum in read only mode. Now I can't download a file that Tony uploaded for me :/Project OS is there for developers and testers, they refuse to take money from you for support, so it is totally free but they are also very strict and likely correctly so, but they own it, its free and they can do as they like. When Clover was first muted I considered that it might be possible to develop Clover as a commercial application, but they were totally against such a proposal as it was against the spirit of OS X86, and they were correct. They might just be cleaning it up and as the majority of the Devs (not Pene) are away a good time to do it. One could argue that an URL saying the site is down for blah blah might be appropriate, but as stated they owe us nothing. It will I am sure reappear in due course. Looking at it positively - they might have taken it down to fix the long overdue search function - who knows? Perhaps there...

Thank you for the reply. Already knew that, but it does not answer my question. I want to prevent it from loading by using Clover's kexttopatch function, thus preventing the kext from loading.... Thank you for the inputTo answer your question, kext patching is kextpatching, I do not believe it can disable a kext.

#1934232 Clover General discussion

Posted by tonydickinson on 24 July 2013 - 03:25 AM

Yeah I've been trying over there but that thread doesn't seem to contain an answer for me.There could be other threads or perhaps here dedicated to Nvidia, as the community has a lot of people who know what they are doing. I honestly do not know and do not wish to waste your time. Sorry I wish I could think of something sensible. Just had a thought - you might need to add the vendor ID and the Device ID to S/L/E/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/Contents/info.plist - I doubt this will help although when it does work you will need that anyway. Could also be that you need the Nvidia info in your DSDT, as there are a few around for your board. You could also try a different profile like iMac12,2 or 13,2 - Just thinking aloud...

#1920180 [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

Posted by tonydickinson on 06 June 2013 - 06:05 AM

@CodeRush. Please to advise that PMPATCH works with the latest Asus BIOS 2003 for my Z77 Sabertooth, and fixes the power management issue. One is no longer able to write to nvram on these boards with the two latest BIOS releases (1908/2003) . We hoped it was a bug, but it now looks intentional as 2003 exhibits the same issue. Fortunately for Clover users there is a workaround using EmuVariableUefi-64.efi, which saves a nvram.plist to disk rather than the internal nvram which is now locked.... PMPATCH is great! Thanks.

Posted by tonydickinson on 04 June 2013 - 01:43 AM

I have made a small research and now see, that Intel code is stable and persistent. No one knows what is it for, so no one touches it. And it goes unmodified from the beginning of the Universe to the end of it. :) Behold, the 0xE2 locking code in ASUS Z87 WS BIOS based on AMI Aptio V platform: 80 FB 0175 080F BA E8 0F89 44 24 30Looks familiar? Exactly the same code as in PowerManagement module for Sandy/Ivy, only located in different module named PowerMgmtDxe with GUID F7731B4C-58A2-4DF4-8980-5645D39ECE58. Trivial change for PMPatch will make it compatible with new BIOSes. The problem is that flashing modified BIOSes can be very hard on boards without USB Flashback feature, because of AMI's new protection, but there is nothing impossible for people with hardware SPI programmer. :) Hi CodeRush - Thanks for the heads up on this - appreciated and good luck with the final exams. Your work has made a significant difference to many of us with Asus boards and it looks as though more...
