    Clover General discussion

    Sorry, still no. This moment Clover is not able to start BigSur recovery. @all Switching from Clover 5119 to 5127 requires inspecting your KextToPatch list. Kext name must be full as I show It can't be just AMDSupport because kext's patches now made by OC which is not able to drive short name vs old Clover.

    HP DV6 2140ef intel i5 M430 Nvidia GeForce GT 320M (only graphics on this laptop) atheros ar9285 IDT 92HD75BX (AppleHDA made by @Mirone) CLOVER r5127 with Quirks - I was having trouble updating the Clover since r5116 because if you update and use the config.plist of the higher versions, you enter the system but have a dark screen !!! if you use the r5116 version config.plist you could use up to r5119 and it worked ... but I wanted to pass the new version and I had this problem - so yesterday with @Chris1111 to whom I say THANK YOU he had activated with the GT210 and I asked to be able to check his EFI and found my error! * I even the version that works and even with the steps I indicated before I did NOT use Quirks as everyone knows it did not yet exist in Clover inside the BIOS folder because my bios does NOT support UEFI! - so I used OpenRuntime.efi that was in the UEFI folder and tried to activate it there I already had a signal after doing NVRAM RESET several times (because HP are quite boring to download) I managed to get to the system with 100% full QE / CI - I took advantage and upgraded from Catalina 10.15.5 to 10.15.7 and activated it using the ke11 (PKG Video Legacy) version of Chris1111 which I have been using for a long time due to the ease of complete installation! - I had already apprehended this problem to Jieff, where I now thank him also for everything he has done without forgetting all the others who work together to make all this possible - I leave here some prints to be able to admire this already very old laptop but it is still possible to do a little things and even watch videos in 1080p that he manages perfectly! Google traductor!

    Hello, Matgen84. I'm sorry if it doesn't answer your question. I continue to use config.plist, which was fixed by Jief_Machak during the test. Devices-Audio was already deprecated there. As with OpenCore, the items PciRoot (0x0) / Pci (0x1f, 0x3) are placed in device-Properties, and the layout-id is specified. You can find the PciRoot address here by looking for the Audio device in the PCIe tab of Hackintool. I'm sorry, about HDMI, I use RX-570 to connect the display with HDMI, but there is an item in OOB. (Maybe WEG is doing it). See below for reference. EFI2012051711.zip Thank you.

    strange, HDMI are also detected, but not managed on my CM, it could be broken. We need to understand why so much around HDMI. May be to set off HMDI sounds could be a solution. @Matgen84: i agree, HDMI appears as sounds connector, and depending on imac type with video buffer. so in your case, video and HMDI are linking for well, and CM sounds is to understand (may be broken ?)

    No, it's not much better. Yes, a lot's of people are talking about OpenCore is better because of the hype. They say "wow OpenCore is so much better than Clover because it's working and Clover is not" because of user error of course, or "wow OpenCore so much faster than Clover" which is also isn't true, they're identical. Real Mac experience? yeah I like these words, they can't really explain it if you ask them what do they mean. You can update with Clover too, without any problem. As mentioned above, update is only necessary (most of the times) when a major release came, so that's also some OpenCore hype. Reddit is full of these hype and people, I really don't like it, it's a shame. No, not that they're using OpenCore, but how are they blaming Clover for everything knowing the fact it's clearly user error and they just can't use Clover properly because they're just don't understand how to configure it. I really find this behavior a shame. And...I mean, Clover is using OpenCore as it's core, so they're really identical in that shape... Now OpenCore have so much people using it. Clover doesn't. OpenCore have a really detailed GUIDE for almost every type of system. Clover is almost have that, but that's not that detailed, most of the people don't know it actually exists. Also Clover's wiki is just outdated, and most of the things inside config.plist aren't well explained, or just aren't explained at all. Now that's the problem with Clover, the documentation. Not what people are saying. And I'm agree with you, I like the Clover GUI, and it's looking nicer than OpenCore's OpenCanopy (I see their point, they wanted to have more "native" theme, but ehh) in my opinion. You can also edit config.plist from GUI, choose between more config.plist, autoboot a specific system, which you can't do with OpenCore (for example I have a server that uses Clover, because then I can boot from ssh to Windows, boot from PowerShell to Linux, etc, etc. You can't do this with OpenCore), so it's soo so much better for multi-boot.

    Hi everyone! I wanted to start this topic about debloating macOs because i love getting the best out every machine and older hardware. When doing my restoration of a very old first gen i7 i started looking for services that are not needed to run the "unix core" of macos, all the icloud/icrap stuff that most power users do not use anyway. It all started with this - https://www.macobserver.com/tips/how-to/disable-tailspind-spindump-macos-cpu-speed/ I stumbled upon the following github and started from the script provided by PWNSDX - https://gist.github.com/pwnsdx/d87b034c4c0210b988040ad2f85a68d3 While the improvement on the i7 machine was not night and day, i have run the script on a friend's Macbook Air with 2gb or ram after updating it to High Sierra with dosdude patches and it really made a huge difference in usability. It literally came back to life from 1.8gb to 1.2 occupied on startup, he is now able to browse the internet again. With some spare time now in the summer i am looking to expand and understand a little bit better the list of disabled services by testing on my own machine. I would define 3 main "levels" of "applezation" on the system: full - being able to use iCloud - most services are needed - just disable Siri and as much tracking / helpers as possible partial - no more icloud, but still able to login and install apps from the App Store - i already broken this and i will try to start from scratch to get the bare minimum needed to achieve this barebone - no more App Store - i am now in this state as i don't need App Store at all, and i am now in the realm of "might aswell disable something crucial and not being able to boot anymore" additionally, Spotlight is probably a huge resource hog exp when using external hard drives i also disabled Time Machine as i manage all my backups with superduper images anyway I'd like to learn as much as possible on the subject - these are some other references on the internet but any other link is very appreciated - http://tech.masterofsql.com/os-x/unload-disable-unwanted-agents-daemons-os-x.html - https://vilimpoc.org/blog/2014/01/15/provisioning-os-x-and-disabling-unnecessary-services/ - https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/296482/macos-10-10-on-4-gb-memory-bloat-which-launch-daemons-agents-services-can-i-dis - http://www.mutface.com/speed-up-mojave-mac-os-technical-guide/ i personally focus my research on High Sierra (being the latest perfectly functioning OS on pre-metal macbooks up to 2011) and Mojave (being the latest running 32bit apps it's the most common among power users) I have been using the macos Console to keep track of changes and services. I noticed that many services are connected in a way that taking one service down (like apsd ) can literally make a lot other go crazy with failed calls, that now need to be disabled aswell to prevent hangups. I will report some of my findings in the next sections, with articles linked CONTENT CACHING -- https://www.idownloadblog.com/2018/07/17/howto-mac-content-caching/ # ContentCaching TODISABLE+=( 'com.apple.AssetCache.builtin' \ 'com.apple.AssetCacheLocatorService' \ 'com.apple.AssetCacheManagerService' \ 'com.apple.AssetCacheTetheratorService' ) TOUCHID # Biokit, touchid TODISABLE+=( 'com.apple.biokitaggdd' \ 'com.apple.biometrickitd' \ 'com.apple.touchbarserver' )

    OpenCore Discussion

    No Schema how can I make the error messages "No Schema" .... always visible? These (there are probably about 6 messages) go away within 1 second and then the boot menu comes up, so that I can't read where the individual errors for "No Schema" are. Is there an option when booting with Open Core 0.6.3? Thanks for tips.

    YES you need a GPT. Partition. but what I have found happen more than once. is that windows installer sees the EFIpartion on the Mac drive. and will not create. its own Efi partition. so you don't see the window drive because noe EFI partition

    OpenCoe is much better than clover ? There's a lot of talk about opencore that's can update without concern, and is near for a a real Mac, don1t know the differences. I saw I boot on YouTube with OpenCore I didn't like the interface, clover have themes high resolutions...

    Sorry, but that statement is so misleading. "all laptops and PC's" ????? It will never work on all "laptops and PC's". It's specific to your laptops and only with IGPU. Your "guide" will not work for a PC with discrete GPU. No one has said Dortania guides are a "bible" and you cannot say that their guides are so bad that so many people have problems booting. There's no the evidence of "so many people" having booting problems because of Dortania guide. Those who do have have problems probably have NOT read the Dortania guides... or not followed or tried to understand them but blindly copy-n-paste. There are so many people who come on these forums with "here is my config.plist and I cannot boot....please check and repair it for me..." without doing all basic research/reading and understanding how PC's work but want their main course handed on plate...till the next problem when they want their dessert. Not all Intel laptops are based in Intel reference design...certainly not from the "big" boys so you cannot generalise. I have no problem running Catalina on my 11 year old Dell 530 with Xeon E5450 and has been running macOS for 11 years starting from Snow Leopard 10.6.8 to 10.15.7 today. Having said all that, please do continue to your efforts....just do not over sensationalise or market what you are doing.

    Clover General discussion

    @Slice Sorry for stupid question: inject audio layout-id with Clover Z77 Hack: Ivybridge chipset ALC892 (Mojave) Clover r51237 latest commit. I use layout-id=1 via Clover Audio/Inject section ---> sound is OK Z390 Hack: Coffee Lake-R ALC1220 (Big Sur 11.1 Beta 2) Clover r51237 latest commit. I use layout-id=16 via Clover Audio/Inject section ---> No sound except HDMI (via Radeon RX580). To have the sound (line input, etc.), I have to add the boot-args alc-id=16 Why ?
