  1. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    Sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but that is quite a silly statement. There is virtually no software without bugs, especially when you are talking about something that is supposed to work on thousands of different hardware configurations. Also I do not misunderstand at all, I have 6 other computers all running Clover flawlessly with custom patched DSDTs and SSDTs. This Lenovo M58p is the only system that behaves this way with Clover, which leads me to believe there is a bug. I can think of 2 possible scenarios as to why Clover does not work on this system: An unknown bug in Clover A bug in the firmware (bios) of the system, perhaps a buggy ACPI implementation. However, since this system works just fine with Chameleon, that seems unlikely. Unless Chameleon is able to overcome whatever bug may exist in the system firmware and Clover cannot. Now, like I said before, I appreciate the help and I know it isn't easy or often fun helping people overcome issues like this, especially in the hackintosh community, but I have given you an overwhelming amount of evidence that suggests that Clover simply is not performing as it is designed to on the Lenovo M58p. Attached is a complete dump, taken from RW Everything in Windows 10, of all the ACPI tables from the system as well as the DarwinDumper output. Perhaps this may contain some information that can shed light on the issue. And again, thanks for taking the time to help. m58p acpi.zip DarwinDumper_2.9.9b13_Clover_X64_3259_Yos_jeff.zip
  2. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    Same as the post on the clover source forge page I made, nothing is being applied. Ioreg shows the vanilla ACPI DSDT structure. Seems like a bug in clover as chameleon works fine. http://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/discussion/1726372/thread/82752507/?limit=25
  3. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    I don't understand how the DSDT could be the issue when clover won't even apply patches with the auto patcher. The DSDT works fine in chameleon.
  4. Boot flags driving me insane!

    nvram.plist is in the root of your hard drive. Open terminal and do: sudo rm /nvram.plist or to be safe, just move it: sudo mv /nvram.plist /nvram.plist.bak
  5. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    Thank your for your response. I did a diff on the dsdt you provided above and my patched dsdt, and the only difference was 3 lines added to _WAK: If (LOr (LLess (Arg0, One), LGreater (Arg0, 0x05))) { Store (0x03, Arg0) } I placed the DSDT.aml with that change in my /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ folder and when I rebooted I had the same result. None of the changes in the DSDT.aml file are applied to the ioreg. I have attached the ioreg output after booting clover with supplied DSDT.aml file as well as the clover boot log. Clover-boot.zip
  6. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    I apologize, I did not realize that dumps created from IORegistryExplorer 3.x do not work for some people. I am attaching a file that should contain all the information about my M58p. The ioreg files were created with IORegistryExplorer 2.1 using the Save a Copy As... command. m58p.zip
  7. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    Not sure what you mean by corrupted, is it not opening for you? As a test, I just downloaded the zip from my post and it opened just fine in IORegistryExplorer.app. I am using version 3.0.2 downloaded from hackintoshosx dot com.
  8. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    I did a dump from terminal, IE: ioreg -f > ioreg.txt Here is output from ioregistryexplorer: ioreg.zip
  9. Clover not applying patches, Lenovo M58p

    Thanks for the response. I have a lot of experience with Clover and am very familiar with each option. I deleted my config.plist and started from scratch, only selecting a few options, including generate P/C states and dropOEM as well as AddMCHC to see if it shows up in ioregistyexplorer. Same result as before, no modifications in ioreg. Files attached: m58p.zip m58p.zip
  10. Lenovo M58 Sleep , Shutdown & PM Fix

    Do you use a patched DSDT with Clover or have any ACPI patches applied in your config.plist? If so, can you confirm that your patches are being applied by running ioregistryexplorer? I am having an issue getting Clover to modify my DSDT table and am looking for help to fix that. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307696-clover-not-applying-patches-lenovo-m58p/
  11. I have a Lenovo M58p with Q45 chipset, Core 2 Duo E8400 and AMD HD 6450. I would like to use this as a media server Hackintosh. Most things work fine out of the box, except that I cannot get sleep to work at all. I use a custom built DSDT with Chameleon 2.3 r2538. I have tried all DSDT patches to fix sleep / wake issues I could find and none have worked. When I put the system to sleep, the fans stay on, monitor goes black, no cursor. Stays like that for about 8 minutes and then reboots. In an effort to fix sleep, I decided to give Clover a try. I applied many of the ACPI patches listed in Clover Configurator, saved the config.plist file to /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist and rebooted. I get to the clover bootloader menu and verify the options I selected are indeed still enabled, then I select my Yosemite install and boot. Once booted, I launched ioregistryexplorer and found that none of the options I had enabled were being applied. For example, I have AddMCHC checked in Clover Configurator and there is no MCHC device in ioregistryexplorer. I have AddDTGP checked, when I extract DSDT in MaciASL, no DTGP or MCHC. I tried adding my custom DSDT to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ and none of my customizations were applied. I have tried installing clover to EFI partition formatted fat32. I have tried installing clover to the same partition as Yosemite. I created a bootable clover flashdrive. I modified every setting in the bios. Nothing I have done has allowed clover to modify my DSDT table. I know that the system isn't the issue because loading my custom DSDT works fine in Chameleon. Has anyone run into an issue like this? Has anyone found a way to fix this issue? I also created an issue thread on Clover's Source Forge page for help. https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/discussion/1726372/thread/82752507/
  12. The system randomly freezes

    Unfortunately I don't have much to report here. I broke down the system and re-seated everything. Then I extracted a vanilla DSDT and re-applied all of the patches for my board and I am no longer having system freezes, nor am I getting occasional CPU panics. I also haven't seen a blue screen in Windows yet. So, who knows?
  13. The system randomly freezes

    I am currently trying to fix a system with the same issue (GA-G31M-ES2L with Q9550). I have both Windows 7 and 10.10.3 installed and I'm sorry to say that I think that panic in the image above might be the result of an actual hardware failure. I have not only experienced that panic before, but I also blue screen in Windows occasionally. Running prime95 under windows will error after about 20 minutes, so that appears to confirm my suspicions. Couple of questions for the OP, assuming you are still having issues... Are you running with a custom DSDT? If so, can you post it here? Do you also have Windows installed? Have you experienced any BSOD? What custom kexts are you using? I still haven't given up hope on my system, so if I find a cause I'll update this thread.
  14. Yosemite: Audio - Realtek ALC AppleHDA

    I have an ALC1150 and don't have audio with CloverALC installed. At first I missed this output, but I also find it difficult to understand. Can you provide a more detailed explanation? Here is a screen shot of Clover Configurator after running the script. I added the line for ALC1150 but I'm not sure it is correct. Thank you for any help.
  15. Mouse pointer jumping

    This issue has nothing to do with bluetooth. See sig for device details, but I have a wired mouse and I'm having the same issue on Mavericks. Did not occur on 10.9.2 but after updating to 10.9.4 mouse jumps every couple of seconds. Easy to tell by just moving the mouse cursor in a circle in the middle of your screen. After about 2 seconds, its position will noticeably jump. I'm currently investigating possible fixes and will post an update here when I find one. If someone else has fixed this issue, please let me know. Update: For me the issue was a buggy experimental kext. I'm using ALXEthernet.kext for my onboard Atheros AR8161 ethernet and this kext was causing the issue. After removing this kext, my mouse is no longer jumpy, though I lose ethernet on that port. Luckily my board also has an Intel ethernet port that works.
