ACPI and Clover config for Acer Aspire v5-571PG


Tested on Catalina 10.15.1 and Clover EFI 5098 (Should work on MacOS 10.9.x - 10.15.x)


Not Working:

- sd card reader

- Atheros AR9462 (use a compatible USB wireless adapter, see below)

- Touchscreen (MacOS 10.15 only)




  • Disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Boot.
  • Legacy Mode is recommended.


**To reset your BIOS, power on the pc and hold the power button for about 30-40 seconds or you can short G2101 (RAM SLOT 1)**



About the Atheros card:

You can install ATH9KFixup (you will also need additional patches on 10.14+ to restore Atheros support) to enable this card, however,

it will break sleep on MacOS 10.14+, it can freeze your OS at any time and it can freeze your network settings.

Because of its instability it is highly recommended to buy a USB wireless adapter.


You can find a list of working adapters, and the drivers, here.



Additional things you will need:


CloverEFI drivers you will need:

  • ApfsDriverLoader
  • EmuVariableUefi
  • FSInject
  • DataHubDxe
  • VBoxHfs (if you have hfs partitions)


Remember to install BIOS drivers if you enable Legaby Boot.




Feel free to ask for help.

Please send me a PM if you have fixes or improvements, thanks.
