    Clover General discussion

    Thanks for that explanation, PMheart. So would you recommend updating all my older patches to include the full name, for a minuscule boot speed improvement?

    Clover General discussion

    I have noticed that in recent versions of Clover, the Kext patches can be specified with full name, like com.apple.iokit.IOAHCIBlockStorage instead of just IOAHCIBlockStorage. What is the benefit to this? I suppose it's possible to have two different kexts with the same short name, but that seems unlikely to me.

    El Capitan: Realtek ALC AppleHDA Audio

    You can write a launch daemon to change the output device using this command-line tool. Not sure if it works on Sierra, but give it a try: https://github.com/deweller/switchaudio-osx
  4. Mine is similar. It seems to be about 50% of the time, it kernel panics at boot. I always leave verbose mode on, but it reboots faster than I can read the error. Need to try with debug mode on. But I never get this problem twice in a row; after the reboot, it's fine. This problem only started within the last few days, but I'm not sure what I did to cause it.
  5. I haven't tried AirPlay, but I'm guessing you need to rename the gpu to GFX1 in the DSDT. That makes it more like the MacPro6,1. With this done, you do not need the kext patch for AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.

    fstab does not prevent auto mounting

    When I switched from UUID to LABEL, it correctly blocks mounts for both HFS and NTFS. Weird. I asked this same question over on Ask Different forums, and got no response, so I think this is somehow related to Hackintosh, rather than buggy diskarbitration code. No idea what causes it though.

    Your signature doesn't say which motherboard you're using, and that's what matters here. Look around on your motherboard with a flashlight and a magnifying glass, and you should see the SuperIO model number printed on the IC somewhere. It should say ITE or Winbond or Fintek. If you have more than one chip, it's probably the largest one.

    Install OpenHardwareMonitor on windows. It will tell you the model number of your SuperIO chip.
  9. That doesn't answer the question. SMBIOS refers to the Mac model you are faking. MacPro5,1 etc. Its usually easier to just post your config.plist as it will answer many questions people have to help you troubleshoot.

    Airport - PCIe Half Mini

    Ah I see. So all the firmwares together are how big, maybe 5MB? If you have many GB of RAM, then I guess it doesn't matter much. Does it have any effect on boot time?
  11. Both of those values give me "unknown". I try 2561 and it gives me "10-Core Intel Xeon E5", but I'd like to make it an i7. Is there a list somewhere that defines all these numbers for all Intel CPUs?

    Dual nVidia GPU system fails

    Does it work if you leave the 2nd GPU powered and remove the SLI bridge?

    Dual nVidia GPU system fails

    Did you do any DSDT edits to get the system running with single GPU? If so, then your DSDT might be wrong for the dual GPU configuration, and you'll need to start over on that.
