#2118578 Chameleon 2.3svn Official PKG Installer & Binaries

You can update the assembler by downloading latest cctools, build 'as' and install over existing assembler.old xcode =  :thumbsdown_anim: ( starts at 2588 up to 2605)

#2115782 Dual-booting both UEFI and BIOS

Posted by Zenith432 on 27 February 2015 - 06:11 PM

You can set it up one of several wayslegacy Clover with BiosBlockIo (boot7), Windows 7 legacy PBR, OS X. legacy Clover with EFI drivers (boot6), Windows 7 legacy PBR, OS X - may give problems due to transition EFI drivers -> legacy PBR, but I've had this work in the past (don't use it anymore.) Either of the above but with Windows 7 UEFI boot - this is what I use today.  Both boot6 and boot7 work. Clover with Native UEFI firmware, Windows 7 legacy boot, OS X - this may or may not work, depending on your native UEFI CSM and ability to support legacy boot. Clover with Native UEFI firmware, Windows 7 UEFI boot, OS X - should work.

#2113155 VMware SVGA II display driver for OS X, v1.2.5

Posted by Zenith432 on 19 February 2015 - 05:41 PM

I did some investigating.  Code to disable beamsync calls 2 functions: CGSSetDebugOptions, CGSDeferredUpdates.  I searched all files in VMware Tools 7.1.1 for these strings, and they're not there.  So Tools 7.1.1 doesn't disable beamsync. I've also noticed that if I set beamoff.app to run on login (using the login items in preferences) - it doens't always work.  I have to run it manually again.  As if there's some problem running it too soon after boot. Another thing I noticed is that even with QE on a hackintosh (non-virtual machine), disabling beamsync helps graphics performance.

I haven't changed anything in my config - so whatever you were doing - thanks!Took out the busy wait loops.  Literally. It's either 3157 if using AHCI, or 3164 if using IDE.

#2111907 GeForce GT610 Image Save Problem

Posted by Zenith432 on 15 February 2015 - 12:18 PM

I got GT 610 too. Can reproduce said problem.  When I modify an image and save out of Preview - resulting image is nearly blank (all white.)  If save w/o editing the image - no change. Maybe some problem with CI. Other than that I'm very happy with it.  QE works out-of-the-box.I've used Intel built-in graphics with no QE for many years - and never seen QE :) So I'm very very happy.  :D The nvidia card also boots better without screen blanking - and the display image is smoother and seems less flickery. Windows built-it benchmarking reports that performance is a little less than Intel built-in, but I don't care.  :D

And to that may I add a hope that some day loading a 3KB file from a disk drive will take a millisecond instead of 3-4 seconds. :rofl:The logic would be anything that needs to be read/loaded from a drive will take an extra amount of time to get done as it goes through those steps.

#2109075 USB Keyboard Freezes At Windows Boot Manager When Booting With Clover

Posted by Zenith432 on 05 February 2015 - 09:11 PM

This happens because you're chain-booting Windows using legacy-boot from Clover.  By that time, UEFI driver has taken over USB, and legacy bios can no longer be used to access the keyboard. If you're using UEFI boot, you only have one option - which is to switch to chain-booting Windows using UEFI boot (using bootmgfw.efi instead of bootmgr). If you're using legacy boot to start clover you have two optionsOne is to switch to chain-booting Windows using UEFI boot.The other is to switch from using boot6 to boot7.  boot7 keeps legacy bios in control of USB and SATA instead of using UEFI drivers for them.

One solution is to add config.plist entry USB -> FixIntelPortMuxing, similar to FixOwnership that would do the code in XhcIntelQuirks() from XhciDxe.That way you could get the port muxing via config.plist w/o dsdt patch and w/o XhciDxe.I gave it a try a few days ago with 3153 but realised that XhciDxe isn't an option for UEFI booting. I tried adding it to the drivers64uefi folder anyway but I still had to add GenericUSBXHCI to get working USB ports. I'll just have to figure out how to fix the multiplexing via DSDT sometime.

XhciDxe is USB3 driver for Clover.. to enable reading filesystems on USB3-connected disks.XhciDxe turns USB legacy off, and also for Intel xhci - handles the port multiplexing - changing highspeed ports to xhci and enabling superspeed ports.So XhciDxe can help as a precursor to AppleUSBXHCI on some hardware...This is starting r3152.  Earlier code didn't do the legacy right, or the port-muxing.It is not equipped with too many quirks so may not work on all xhci controllers.  I know it to work on VLC, Intel and Renesas.

This is usually caused by a motherboard bug where one of the USB controllers has PME enabled, and generates PME during transition to S5 (soft-off), which causes the system to reboot.  What OS and device driver are you using that causes this behavior?  Workaround is for device driver to disable PME before shutdown.  It's got nothing to do with Clover.I got another problem,I plug in usb storage like usb flash drive or mp3 player,computer cannot shutdown,instead of,it restart,when I unplug it,problem solved,how to fix this problem with clover when I don't need unplug the usb storage?

#2102514 exFAT Volume Boot Record for Chameleon

Posted by Zenith432 on 12 January 2015 - 05:16 PM

Manual installation of what?  boot1x can be used same as before. boot1xalt is in Clover package.  Chameleon does not distribute these alt boot sectors (boot1f32alt, boot1h2, boot1xalt) with the keypress option. The option to use with Windows MBR code or naked exfat partition wasn't meant to be put into packager :)  It's special scenario for people want to set it up manually.... The redesign with less fat sector reading is just in there - doesn't need any handling. [Edit: Maybe my wording wasn't clear - but the new stuff is all added and presents new possibilities.  Nothing was taken away.] Thanks Zenith432!and...this mean that this require manual installation only?(or elaborate a Java function for the Distribution file to navigate into IO registry to see if the target is Exfat... :worried_anim:, using the installer..)

#2102469 exFAT Volume Boot Record for Chameleon

Posted by Zenith432 on 12 January 2015 - 03:34 PM

I've uploaded (in post #1) v1.0.5 with the following changesImplemented 2nd-stage boot selection feature used in Clover with two-second delay for a keypress.  If a digit X is pressed during the delay, load file /bootX instead of /boot.  The code for this in the source is activated by defining symbol SELECTION_FEATURE.  boot1x is a binary without the selection feature.  boot1xalt is a binary with the selection feature.  The rationale for two binaries is that people who do not want the option to select may not like the two-second delay.Implemented feature for boot1x to load its own second sector in case the previous (MBR) boot sector only loaded 1 sector.  As a result, the expectation from prior bootcode is now 1) To load at least 1 sector at address 0x7c00 and 2) Pass bios drive number in DL.  This means boot1x may now be used on a 'naked' exFAT partition not wrapped in MBR, and may also be used with MBR bootcode from other OSes such as Windows.Re-e...

#2102430 VMware SVGA II display driver for OS X, v1.2.5

Posted by Zenith432 on 12 January 2015 - 11:25 AM

You need to install JasF's beamoff.app to disable beamsync. I used the latest 7.1 VMware tools but the performance is just as bad as before sadly on Yosemite. Without a new VGA driver I'm afraid the performance will never be as it was on Mavericks

#2100292 Workstation 11, Player 7 and Fusion 7 Mac OS X Unlocker 2

Posted by Zenith432 on 03 January 2015 - 06:35 PM

Yosemite is running slower on the vm11 than vm10, did i overlook anything?Yes, you need beamoff.app by JasF to disable beamsync. Works like magic.

I've problem to run the new kernelpatcher module that "return" an error. I'm curious to see solved the code and try again, to see if it changes anything .. You have developed a possible change?No, sorry.   Could someone send this issue to the svn repo? - I think I would not be able to explain the error to ErMac or the contributors  :)Done, see issue 388.
