#2430494 macOS Sierra on Broadwell E/EP (not a guide but maybe a working in progress)

Posted by maleorderbride on 25 May 2017 - 05:37 AM

Why not just add an SSDT to set the GPU to GFX1?

#2348045 [Guide] Mac OSX 10.12 with X99 Broadwell-E family and Haswell-E family

Posted by maleorderbride on 11 January 2017 - 11:13 PM

Hi. I have made a SSDT patch with GFX1. maybe i have missed someting? Its succesfully loaded to. Attached IOReg, log and EFI files. UPDATE:I switched to HDMI and now its working. But I need to replug the hdmi cable when the system has booted. Yea, GFX1 looks fine. What does Nvidia Driver Manager report? Try turning off web driver within it, then restarting with nv_disable=1 and turning it back on.Also, add EMUVariable to your Clover kexts if NVRAM is not persistent in your board. That will help the Nvidia Driver Manager reflect the real state of things. Although, if HDMI works and the System Info says you have a 980 Ti (or whatever model) then it doesn't sound like a driver issue. In my experience, all my 9xx cards have all ports working automatically. No work to be done. Perhaps your display is part of your problem?

  I have a 980 Ti and I can change resolution and refresh rate with the latest driver in 10.12.2. I do however see an annoying message about about Nvidia Driver Manager being unable to open from time to time.  Definitely not the best release from Nvidia, but no real issues that I have found.   I have 2x EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classifieds with both nvda_drv=1 and NvidiaWeb=True set. I imagine your black screen difficulties are related more to your 75Mhz manual setting. Did you try the pixel clock unlocked in case it is a bandwidth problem? Are you going to a 4K display? Hey guys! Have installed OS X on a new USB Drive now. ALL went good until i installed the nvidia WebDrivers.The exact same EFI setup works yesterday. So i dunno whats wrong now. I installed it again because i messed up the system. Black screen to death! I have attached my files here. Can some one look in to it and see whats wrong? :/ Se my specs in the signature. Ma...

Core i7 5930k   By the way, the Nvidia web driver is super sketchy. If you change the resolution/refresh rate, it'll black screen. If you change Nvidiaweb=true, it'll either black screen at boot or load up an "unsupported" gfx card @ 1280x1024p with terrible performance. Recommend anyone looking to upgrade to 10.12.2, to hold off until the web drivers becomes more stable. I have a 980 Ti and I can change resolution and refresh rate with the latest driver in 10.12.2.

I'll simplify my answer: Xeon => traini7 => car A Xeon can carry a lot of people, at a relatively quick speed, over long distances, and be incredibly reliable. An i7 can carry some amount of people, at an extremely quick speed, over short-medium distances, and be relatively reliable. In other words, more people are buying cars than buying trains. They only need to carry some amount of people over short distances with the advantage of faster speeds. Also, cars are more wide-spread/compatible than trains when it comes to finding parts. This is nonsense. A CPU is a CPU. I suggest you compare real world performance and differences instead of these odd analogies. Most people are fine with an i7 because they would not benefit very much from the extreme parallelization that comes with many cores. If use the CC suite, then an 6-core or an 8-core with a high frequency is a great choice. If you game, then a quad core is plenty. However, if you u...

I found this:Renaming H000 to GFX1 works on the Deluxe (as does using DSDT patches in clover, which avoids an SSDT entirely for this), but neither works on my X99-E WS as H000 no longer is the device the displays come off of. Instead, on the X99-E WS, there is an additional device called "pci-bridge@10" which is not present in the DSDT, nor in any additional ACPI dumps that I could find.Edit: I fixed this. I added another device with ADR 0x00100000 to the SSDT, then added GFX1 to it.I do not understand, however, how should I rewrite SSDT-BR3A to adapt to this situation... I see that you are quoting me ;) See below for what I meant. This is kind of a fragile method though as adding or removing PCI-e devices can shift the addresses and break the GFX1 injection. Scope (_SB.PCI0.BR3A)    {        Device (PCIA)        {            Name (_ADR, Zero)  // _ADR: Address       ...

Its come like this What edits do you make to DSDT in total? What effect do they have?  Why not add this SMC device via SSDT? It seems easier and would be compatible with any motherboard then.

Just a note: Still getting random (really, really, random) restarts. I can idle for hours... no problem. I can watch videos for hours... no problem. I randomly boot into the OS and 5 minutes later it'll restart.   Switching back to OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi. Been using that for my primary and thankfully no issues... so hopefully that'll cure the random reboots I'm having on my test bench. This has been present in X99 (mostly Haswell-E/P, I believe) since 10.10.3. You should probably go back and edit your previous posts that have attached files and make clear that your EFI folder or settings are not actually stable.  My understanding is that is related to MSR's triggering the reboots, so look to AppleIntelInfo and start making changes there. I have zeroed out 0x1AA along with the patched 0xE2 and I think that catches most of the restarts. I also have EIST disabled and Intel Adapter Thermal Monitor disabled. Last week i had several freezes after installing...

Its additional helper.If you test your hardware give report.Thank you. What does it do? Is there any point in using it if one does not need the BAR patch in the first place?

#2303362 El Capitan XCPM for X99 - One patch solution

Posted by maleorderbride on 21 October 2016 - 04:31 PM

what's the one patch solution for Sierra 10.12.0 Using Gigabyte X99P-SLI and Broadwell-E 6800K And you must always use FakeCPUID for Broadwell-E, i haven't seen one solution work without it TIA I "ported" (no actual work done ;p) this patch to Sierra, but it does not have any observable effect. Does anyone more knowledgeable than I see a problem with it in the kernel? However, this is only for Haswell-E/P and the thread is just awaiting a re-name. If anyone is interested, you can test it yourself:40000000010005000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 to 40000000010004000000000000000000000000000000000000000000Oddly, the original El Capitan patch works with some of my Haswell Xeons, but not others. I have yet to determine why that is. For example, my extremely old engineering sample E5-2693 V3 2.8Ghz 12-core runs at the highest possible turbo ratios under this patch, but never drops out of turbo. While, my E5-2673 V3 2.4GHz 12-core (a very late sta...

No, that is not right at all. Use this solution: http://www.insanelym...patch-solution/

#2297997 5960x successfully installed under El Capitan 10.11.3

I just wanted to add that the 10.11 patch also works in 10.10. I was hunkering down to try to port it, and then the hex just matched as soon as I ran a search. If you use the rollback technique in 10.10, then it screws up firewire, thunderbolt, and anything else that is dependent upon the latest PCIFamily.

Thanks for creating this thread! What Cinebench R15 score do you get?

HiSo also with broad well EP you have a good lower steps and Higher steps IPG graphics with fakecpuid and Null? Yes, but I only have K-series Broadwell-EP's right now, not any Broadwell-E Xeons to test with. Make certain you have CPU Core Ratio set to Sync All Cores (or an overclock), EIST Disabled, and C-States Enabled while using FakeCPUID+Null AICPUPM method. Wahou!!! I'm curiousWhat use for your workstation Video editing and coloring. It just has a lot of PCI-e devices. With multiple NVMe drives, two GPUs, a Decklink, a RAID card, and sometimes a RR-X, I really do need at least 36 lanes.

#2293522 El Capitan XCPM for X99 - One patch solution

Posted by maleorderbride on 05 October 2016 - 06:06 PM

I finally tested this on a 5960X and it worked quite well. I had steady maximum performance and P-States reached, but still would drop to 1.2Ghz and low power usage. BIOS Settings:EIST: DisabledCPU Core Ratio should be set to a multiplier, or Sync All CoreC-States: EnabledC3: Enabled   This does not seem to work for Broadwell, so perhaps the title should make clear that this is Haswell-E/P only instead of X99? Or does someone have this working in Broadwell with an additional patch or two?
