  1. Great job! I have an X270, same sleep issue as you. Let me know if you manage to fix it!
  2. EDIT: Sorry notice I posted this in Installation, could a mod please move this to Post-Installation? Hi all, I've pretty much managed to get my X270 finally working perfectly. Everything works pretty much except for the fact that I can put the system to sleep both using the menu bar as well as closing the lid. However, on wake by opening the lid or pressing the power button, I'll be greeted with the password input screen (as usual) but I cannot type my password. The Cancel / Guest User button also does not work. If I stay on this screen for a while, I will end up getting the spinning beach ball. From how I can understand this issue is that the sleep seems to also disable/turn off my SATA hard drive. On wake, it doesn't turn it back on and hence, the system pretty much crashes / freezes. Unfortunately, I don't get anything in the logs so I'm not sure what information there is I can work with. I can't seem to work out how to fix this issue. In the mean time, I just can't put this machine to sleep otherwise I'll need to do a full hard reset to turn it back on. It's quite annoying. Hopefully someone can help me out!
  3. Hi all, I've successfully installed Sierra 10.12.6 on my X270 with a lot of DSDT-edits and a few kexts. CPU: i7-6600U RAM: 16GB x DDR4 GFX: Intel HD520 Everything seems to work (WLAN swapped with DW1560) except for sleep/waking. So, as I understand, there is a half-sleep and full sleep. When the laptop is in half sleep (before it's actually gone to sleep), I can still wake the laptop by pressing any key, opening the lid or pressing the power button. However, when the laptop is in full sleep, the power button will be blinking (breathing animation) and nothing will work: 1. The power button does not respond - but the fans start spinning 2. The keyboard does not respond 3. The trackpad does not respond 4. If I close the lid and open the lid again, the power button stops the animation (stays solid) but the screen is still black - but the fans start spinning I've tried a lot of things and reading threads but I can't seem to work out what the issue is. It's also quite hard to debug because the only way to get my system back is by turning it off and back on again so I can't get any ACPI debug logs. Does anyone have any idea what the issue is?
  4. Nvidia Injection Works on Yosemite but not El Capitan

    An update: I tried to get the Nvidia drivers from my Yosemite installation disk and replacing (as in deleting NVDA*.kext and using Kext Wizard) the El Capitan included kexts but still no luck. Most likely means that they've change some display-related things in El Capitan...
  5. Nvidia Injection Works on Yosemite but not El Capitan

    Thanks, just tried that but now I'm getting glitchy graphics; what happens is the screen will load with the verbose text in the background and random lines of colour throughout the screen. I know it's my desktop because I can see pixels moving when I move the mouse.
  6. Nvidia Injection Works on Yosemite but not El Capitan

    Oops, sorry! I'm on a Lenovo ThinkStation P700 Workstation CPU: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2620 v3 (Haswell-E) RAM: 16 GB Graphics: 2x Nvidia Quadro K420 (have tried with just one but still doesn't work)
  7. Hey guys, I finally made the plunge to upgrade my system to El Capitan from Yosemite. I used the same Clover configuration from my Yosemite installation but for some reason, the Nvidia injection is not working. My system will boot up and then eventually, I'll get 1 of 4 possible scenarios: 1. The monitor will blank (but there is still signal) 2. The login screen will show for a brief moment, then go to a black screen (same as 1.) 3. I get a black screen with a white cursor, like when the system is loading in verbose and it will be stuck without any text. 4. I get a cursor but nothing else. The cursor can be moved. Does anyone know why this would happen? It worked perfectly fine in Yosemite. I'm starting to consider whether or not I should extract the Nvidia drivers from Yosemite and put them into El Capitan, but I don't have my Yosemite installation anymore :/ Thanks! EDIT: Forgot my system specifications; I'm on a Lenovo ThinkStation P700 Workstation CPU: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2620 v3 (Haswell-E) RAM: 16 GB Graphics: 2x Nvidia Quadro K420 (have tried with just one but still doesn't work)
  8. When you say unresponsive and laggy like hell, it only happens when you open or close an application (say, Finder) and then the system will hang for around 5 seconds? I've been having this same problem and I gave up and ended up using Yosemite with my old Quadro K420 instead. It seems that the Nvidia Web Drivers don't work well with dual CPU configurations, and/or TSC sync'ing is causing the issue. However, when I delete VoodooTSCSync.kext from Clover, my system will KP and not boot anymore
  9. Lol, okay so finished installing El Capitan, removed VoodooTSCSync.kext from my Clover kexts folder and it basically will KP and restart. I'm also having massive lag with the Nvidia Web Drivers, which after reading around, seems to be associated with the TSC syncing (in general, with dual CPUs).
  10. Well, an update to this is, just trying to fresh install El Capitan 10.11.3 from the Mac App Store via USB and Clover installed on the USB. Without VoodooTSCSync.kext in the Clover kext folder, it will kernel panic. I will finish the installation now and see what happens afterwards.
  11. I'll give it a shot this weekend. I'm still running Yosemite 10.10.5 on my Hackintosh due to X99/Haswell-E not working well on El Capitan for me, so I might as well take this chance to upgrade. Will post updates soon
  12. Wow good news! Seems like I'll have a busy weekend to reinstall El Capitan! Do we still need VoodooTSCSync?
  13. Nvidia GTX 960 - Lag with Web Drivers

    Got it booting on OsxAptioFix2Drv finally after adding my DSDT and kexts (actually, I forgot it when I first made the Clover USB) Nvidia doesn't appear to be any different, the preference pane still shows that it's using OSX Native drivers, the lag still exists and changing it to Nvidia Web Driver doesn't make any difference and after reboot, will still show back as OS X drivers ...
  14. Nvidia GTX 960 - Lag with Web Drivers

    With OsxAptioFix2Drv, the system doesn't boot with the last message being: EDIT: Just tried again and now I'm stuck in bootloader with error: EDIT2: I installed a later version of OsxAptioFix2Drv and now I can get past the bootloader error allocation of pages, but getting a kernel panic right after that. Going to try change the SMBIOS now to see if it fixes the issue.
  15. Nvidia GTX 960 - Lag with Web Drivers

    Oh is that so? I have the following: FSInject-64.efi HFSPlus-64.efi OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi
