    Clover General discussion

    I cannot figure out why Clover isn't using the nVidia Driver, yes it's installed, or why it's not using my countdown (timer) preferences on the boot selection screen. If I use the boot option of "nvda_drv=1" at the boot selection screen, then it is enabled and the appropriate kexts load (verified through kextstat). It has to be simple enough. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict>

  2. I am also having the same issue. What is odd to me is that the Clover installation was working correctly, but I reformatted the drive to start fresh and now I cannot get Clover to install my second time around. I've even went through GParted Live USB and reset the "ESP" and "Boot" flags but still can't get the machine to find it. I'm kicking myself now... Edit: I had to have GParted Live on my USB as just the FAT partition type. FAT32, which it says is compatible, wouldn't boot it. 2nd Edit: Does your system have CoreStorage when you type out 'diskutil list' in Terminal?
  3. I recently had El Capitan installed on a Toshiba laptop. I had felt that I messed with too many files trying to resolve some issues getting the audio and webcam to work. I decided to re-install El Capitan thinking a refresh would start me out right. Now I cannot get the Clover Installer to install to the EFI partition. It is going straight to my OS partition. I notice that when the install finishes I do not have an EFI partition mounted AND the files Clover said it installed now reside in my root directory. Now I'm wishing I didn't do it because I cannot get it to boot without the USB because I get the message that I don't have a bootable disk available. The USB is formatted with the GUID Partition Type so I know it's being read by the computer. I even went as far as creating the USB again from scratch. Moving the files directly over to the EFI partition after making sure it's FAT32 format and mounting it does not do anything. I really don't understand how this happened or what could have changed. I didn't do anything with the BIOS settings. I'm at a loss here and hoping someone can help me figure this out.

    An almost stable laptop with El Capitan. Assistance needed.

    Attached. Edit: I was able to get sleep achieved my removing the _PWR object from both EH01, EH02, and HDEF. When I had just removed it from EH01 and EH02 my new "Wake Reason" now included HDEF. The only downside, not a huge one by any means, is to turn it back on I need to press the power button and the menu bar sound indicator slide doesn't update if I change it within the Sound Options menu. Now I need to focus on getting the Internal Microphone to be recognized and the Integrated Camera to work. The camera indicator light comes on but only a black screen appears. DSDT.zip

    So with the SSDT's that are already in my ACPI>patched folder, should I remove those and generate one with the Piker-Alpha script? Edit: Wait, this still seems to be utilizing kext options. You said patching on the fly with Clover, which feels like a better option to keep a closer vanilla install (in case a format awaits in my future) but I'm not seeing that post. I'll keep looking... Edit 2: Decided just to use the Patched APICPUPM kext as I couldn't achieve it through Clover. I guess I wasn't doing it right. Sleep still doesn't work, so I'll have to take a look into what WhistlingMoonTraveller posted.

    All USB ports work. Going off memory, I haven't seen a setting within the BIOS pertaining to the USB Wake options but I'll look again. I've had it fail to go to sleep with no devices connected to the laptop. Can the internal devices such as the webcam/microphone or touchpad be construed as a USB device? As for the FakeSMC, I haven't paid attention to the versions as this one has served me well for my desktop builds and I usually pull from the guides, unless I know what I'm looking for and will just go straight to the source (i.e. trying to run OS X on a laptop). I can remove the NullCPUPM to see if I have any adverse effects. The Toshiba specifications are: Intel Core i5-2430M Intel HD 3000 Intel HM65 Chipset Conexant 20585 Audio Codec Synaptics Touchpad RTL8188CE WLAN AR8152 Ethernet Integrated Webcam* *No longer appearing in the hardware since I redid my DSDT for erroneous patches.

    Attached. I removed the Apple folder from the EFI to help cut down on the file size. Toshiba_Laptop.zip
  8. I've come extremely close, or at least it feels close, to getting a completely stable Toshiba laptop to run El Capitan. I pulled the DSDT using Xubuntu. I've run some basic DSDT patches to clean up the naming conventions and minor fixes. Most of those came from RehabMan's repository which included the "Intel HD 3000 Low Res Fix, Rename to IGPU, rename _DSM to XDSM" to name a few. I'll admit that I'm not really familiar with analyzing the DSDT to find the proper patching, I know the purpose of it and to look for proper patches, but it's mostly been trial and error coupled with the fact that I've trying to do this for a family member and have limited time to return it. What I'm struggling with is the sleep function (Wake Reason: EHC2, EHC1) which I tried to remedy with the ECHI Fix but did not work and the integrated webcam/microphone to work (Toshiba UVC...). The audio was a bit tricky for me as I've only worked with Realtek and used toleda's guide for my other machines but this laptop has the Conexant 20585 sound source. I was able to get that working by utilizing the AppleHDA Patcher by Micky1979 and Mirone. I will say I edited the DSDT a bit based on their guide but may have misinterpreted it because I couldn't get it to work until I installed the kexts that the application generated. I don't know if anyone wants to help me figure this out but I would like to get this working seeing that it's the first laptop I've done this to and I've come this far with it. I can post the DSDT (Original and Patched) and the config.plist that I'm using with Clover if anyone does want to help me. Thank You Edit: Redacted statement about SSDT's. Those are fine now.
  9. You are still aware that I cannot get to single user mode, correct? Any alterations I make are through connecting the HDD to my computer. I could perform those same tasks through Terminal on my working computer, but doesn't 'Kext Wizard' perform the same permission changes to those directories / files?
  10. I'm assuming you meant AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, in which case I did remove that. It made no difference. Kernel is AnV 10.9. My boot flags are set in the chameleon.boot.plist, the link should be correct now. Edit: Your repost still has the incorrect link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/77418315/Extra.zip
  11. I installed, but in an unconditional way. I used my desktop to install through it's external SATA Mount, copied over the AnV 10.9 mach kernel applied the appropriate kexts, DSDT, edited my chameleon boot file, applied the latest bootloader(chameleon), and then rebuilt S/L/E and E/E from Kext Wizard. Messing with different boot flags I get to a new issue: SleepCapability. Unfortunately any attempt to alter my DSDT with an EHCI patch results it "ATT3" object not existing being produced. On an additional note, the Nonpci kext was applied to my system too. That gave me better results than the "npci=0xX000" flags. What is contained in my Extra Folder: http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/77418315/Extra.zip I've included my Original DSDT pulled from an Ubuntu Live session.

  12. To preface, I feel like I've looked everywhere to help myself before posting this: I can't find information on whether or not this will install to an Acer AspireOne 722 Netbook (AMD C-60 APU). I've got the AnV kernel on my USB, but I get stuck at 'hfs: mounted XXXX on device root_device" no matter what flags I type in, unless I specify "busratio" (which loops through the opemu error), it just stays there. Sometimes even -x will cause it to loop. I did rollback the kext files to 10.9 and rebuild, but still a no go. Tried with Mountain Lion but it would complain about backtrace .... PowerManagement, then ACPI kexts once I remove the PowerManagement kext. I'm trying Mavericks because it goes much further into the installation, except for the "hfs: mounted..." issue. Any suggestions?
