Can you share me your ioreg?. I'm using 17r4 with 1070

Here you go with ioreg v2.1...

You see, the thing is, it gets stuck AFTER all verbose logs finish and the apple logo + progress bar appears. There is no way I can know why it's stuck...

You can capture the boot log after system recover, the command below will capture log after the date specified,


log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug --start  `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` > ~/Desktop//boot.log


Once you collected the log, open with text editor or something and search for "system boot", you can find your boot log for the time and date you want.

Will try your tomorrow, thanks!


And yes, I have IntelGraphicsFixup.kext and the patches for DVMT. In theory mine should work but it just doesn't which is very frustrating... Maybe it's because OLED has a higher resolution? Plus I randomly get stuck after verbose at the progress bar which is infuriating because there is no way to find out what's causing it...


Do you mind posting your config.plist as well? :)

My config.plist is already in 2017-1023 aw13r3 ESP.zip, I guess you miss it.


Random boot lock at gIOScreenLockState ? Post your boot log.

Hi, I also have the Alienware 13 R3 but with the OLED screen. I keep getting stuck randomly after verbose at the logo + progress bar screen(Doesn't matter if I use 0x12345678 or 0x591b0000). Plus, even though it correctly recognizes my HD630 1500MB, I have zero graphics acceleration. Do you mind sharing your EFI folder?


Plus, how did you manage to get the 1060 to work?? I thought Optimus doesn't work in macOS so I disabled my 1060 with an SSDT patch.

Just posted my clover config for aw13r3. Something else is not right, you should be using 0x591b000,  OLED should work, I remembered i need some extra DVMT patch, I don't have the OLED version with me now so I can't verfiy. Did you install IntelGraphicsFixup.kext ? or Google "DVMT OLED osx86" should help.


GTX 1060, just install matching Nvidia Webdriver version (OS X 10.12.6), under clover config, enable NvidiaWeb and make sure nv_disable is 0 or disable. Also remove SSDT patch for disable DGPU and you should be good to go.


Driving 2 video output to a single display will need some sort of muxing (Optimus feature ?) which is not available in OS X, but you can drive 2 separate display though. I am driving the internal LCD panel with Intel 630 and external monitor with GTX1060 via hdmi or dvi, concurrently.
