#2211788 AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy "on the fly" patching - impossible? (altern...

Posted by maleorderbride on 30 January 2016 - 05:08 PM

The MacPro6,1 kexts must be doing something tricky under the hood. Even though the plist declares "GFX1" "unload", it seems that GFX1 remains the functional device and GFX2 is dead after OS X loads on a hackintosh. Maybe something to do with "Device (GCON)" in the OEM DSDT. I'm no coder so I don't know. The usual school of thought says, give all individual devices unique names IE: GPU # 1 = GFX1 GPU # 2 = GFX2 etc etc, but naming multiple GPUs GFX1 works! If you have multiple discrete GPUs, use GFX1 in ACPI for all GPUs and they will all work. No kext binary patch or plist edit necessary. If you name discrete GPU to GFX1 and leave the IGPU name alone, does the integrated graphics still work? I don't have a system with integrated graphics to test.Thanks shilohhh. This allows me to get a multi-card setup working with MacPro6,1. Adding an SSDT with GFX1 and voila ;) 

#2209880 Apple with 10.11.3 Gives Native Support on Haswell-E Xeon CPU ?

About to test this with some Xeons! ;)

#2206977 El Capitan 10.11.1 versus the 5960X - A Collaborative Work-Thru

Posted by maleorderbride on 15 January 2016 - 07:09 PM

Attached are the ACPI dump files that differ between my 12-core Xeon (which is able to run 10.11.2 El Capitan without any rollbacks, kernel patches, or anything of that sort) and augustopaulo's i7-5960X's. We both have an ASUS X99 Deluxe on 1901 BIOS. Does anyone know how to force clover to load some or all of these?  edit: thanks Jaime! (and right you are Ken!) I forgot to click Attach.

#2168460 Haswell-E mach_kernel patch (5960X, 5830K and 5820K) 10.10 - 10.10.1 Yosemite

Posted by maleorderbride on 16 September 2015 - 10:23 PM

Thank you for the test. For the moment all the CPU with more than 6 core need to use these kext. No problem! Not quite. I can use a 12-core Xeon V3 completely vanilla, and have been able to do so since 10.10.2. No kernel patch, no 10.9.5 IOPCI or ACPIPlatform. I don't need VoodooTSCSync either. Edit: Edkroket I am able to get the TB to Eth adapter to work now. Thanks!

Hey guys I need your help to update the guide. I need someone try running Yosemite 10.10.5 without a patch to see if it works. So update the 10.10.5 combo update and restart? no kernel patch? Anything else?  Installing 10.10.5 Combo on my otherwise working (see above) 5960X system. Just FYI, other E5-26xx V3 CPUs have not needed a kernel patch since like 10.10.2 or so. The i7's do, and so does the E5-2697 V3.   Edit: Good call Stinga. My 5960X systems starts up without a kernel patch in place under 10.10.5. I still have the Legacy IOPCIFamily and ACPIPlatform. Don't suppose you have found any way to get rid of those two legacy kexts, have you? My Xeon V3's don't need them if they are 4,6, or 12-core CPUs. Again the 14-core E5-2697 V3 needs it though ;(

OK, posted in Coderush's topic. I am sure what I am asking is impossible (or at least impractical), but I had to check!Thanks for your information Dmazar!

#2114647 Yosemite GTX 9xx/750/750 ti Compatibility Report

Posted by maleorderbride on 24 February 2015 - 04:04 PM

So I have the Gigabyte GTX 970 4GB  G1 Gaming and was wondering if anyone found a framebuffer or way to get the other two display ports to be detected by OS X on the card. I just got some new monitors and one of the reasons I bought this unit was because its the only 970 (at the time) with 3 DP ports making it perfect for multi-display UHD content. And before you ask, yes I tried MST and that didn't help. Are you using Chameleon? If so, switch to Clover.

FYI, there is a new BIOS update for ASUS X99's. Enables USB 3.1. Might want to deal with that first ;)

#2112230 5960X, Rampage V Extreme OsxAptioFix Problem

Posted by maleorderbride on 16 February 2015 - 05:02 PM

I think I have a workaround, at five boots back to back now. Will figure out exactly what made the difference.  Confirmed, workaround. Finally triggered the AptioFix error again on restart. All one needs to do is navigate to System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup and delete kernelcache. I suggest doing this before your first startup if you install 10.10 via Rampage's method, then again after your first startup. Add this small bit of information to your guide Andrew. After that, I only rarely saw the error.

#2111196 5960X, Rampage V Extreme OsxAptioFix Problem

Posted by maleorderbride on 13 February 2015 - 12:29 AM

I am on an ASUS X99 Deluxe, latest BIOS, E5-2697 V3 and am getting hung up on PCI Configuration Begins even with AptioFix2, debug=0x14e, and IOPCIFamily rollback. This is from an already working 10.10.2 UEFI install that I did on my UEFI X79 build. Tried with a GT 430 (obviously had to use legacy with the 430) and with a GTX 980 as Web Drivers appear to complicate things with Clover. Tried both UEFI and Legacy, same error, same place. AptioFix spits out fatal errors occasionally, usually relating to graphics flags.   Guess I will install 10.9.5 /w chameleon for now. There seem to be some bugs to work out that are not know at this time and not solved with Rampage's method, nor anyone else's that I have seen. I do not know what the precise variables are, but am happy to try things if anyone has advice.

#2110900 Haswell-E mach_kernel patch (5960X, 5830K and 5820K) 10.10 - 10.10.1 Yosemite

Posted by maleorderbride on 12 February 2015 - 02:06 AM

Curious to see how that 36-core goes. My single 2699 V3 should be here in a few weeks. Also, David, you can always disable cores in the BIOS to get down to 16 real cores and see if you can suddenly boot, but from your KP screenshot it does look like you just need to do a rollback, at least in order to see the next KP ;)

#2101537 GT650M - black screen since 10.9.2 update

Posted by maleorderbride on 07 January 2015 - 07:48 PM

Email me a IOREG and DSDT from your system with the 690. I know several people that have that GPU without issues.  Thanks! Figured it out--changing UseKernelCache=No allowed me to do 50 reboots without any problem.

Posted by maleorderbride on 21 September 2014 - 12:55 AM

Full power management is unlikely to happen without Apple.Since most core functions seem to work pretty easily, there is not really much more progress needed other than Clover.  All one really needs is Rampage's SSDT when he releases, a few kexts (all available already if you search this forum for the requisite chipset drivers), and chameleon on a USB.

If you have problems with the installer mickg, then do the install on a different build and only plug it in to the X99 when it is all set up.
