In Topic: Installing a El Capitan on Dell Alienware 15r2 - Skylake system

Can anyone test the IntelHD 530 with Cinebench and let me know what score he gets ? For some reason i cannot get a higher score than 27 whereas on Windows it is in the late 40s.  The Intel HD is fully recognized though.

BTW, a lot of people say that they have HWP enable, but they ignore whether their power management is fully implemented. A very simple/useful way is open System Preferences -> Energy Saver to see if there's 3 options in Battery and 5 options in Power Adapter. More accurate way you need to open ioreg to search AGPM and X86PlatformPlugin, use kextstat to list all cpu/gpu relate kexts.

 

I have 3 options in battery and 4 in Power adapter (what is the 5th option supposed to be ? Maybe depends on the hardware ) ?

In Topic: Nvidia Web Driver updates for macOS Sierra (UPDATE 01/24/2017)

10 February 2017 - 01:29 PM

Okay, I'd already disabled all the Nvidia options in Clover with exception of enabling the Web Driver so it's probably not the config then.  I have a patched DSDT, but I've be trying to reduce that and rely more on Clover to do it for me.  What did you change with ACPI patching?

 

I tried recording the verbose log messages using my smartphone, but it boots too quickly to be readable.  I can see it's using the web driver in the verbose output, and that it uses the GM100 kext, but there's not much more than that.  Since Apple changed the way logging works I haven't been able to find if the verbose boot logging is written to a log file somewhere.  If I can find a better way to record the verbose boot I'll attach it.

 

Thanks for the help.

Insert this under your Nvidia graphics in the DSDT (or maybe an SSDT in my case) not sure if it is PEGP, GFX0 or other in your ACPI tables:

Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)  // _DSM: Device-Specific Method
            {
                If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
                {
                    Return (Buffer (One)
                    {
                         0x03                                           
                    })
                }

                Return (Package (0x0E)

What system you use? Do you touch X86PlatformPlugin.kext before?

 

syscl

I have an Alienware 15 r2 laptop (intel CPU 6820HK).  X86PlatformPlugin.kext never altered, still vanilla.

Attached my Clover Folder if it can be of any help.

Well actually i think i found the problem, i added your patch to Kexttopatch instead of KernelToPatch.  Misread your post :)

Will try again now.
