    ThunderBolt Drivers

    I think we need to understand what data is written to UEFI when Tb hardware gets recognized on windows first. This is the only mistery and the only clue we have something is not working the usual wzu
  2. Same behavior here on Asus X99 Deluxe since 10.11.4 with Samsung 950 PRO 512Gb. I also tried with 10.11.5 and on several motherboards (Z9PED8 WS and X99-E-WS) with and without Asus PCIe board adapter. The OS boots up but if I try to browse the M2 content I get an instant reboot (kernel panic related witch backtrace to NVMeGeneric.kext). It's a shame JimJ740 does not answer or release the sources from his driver. It's conter-productive : he made a poison gift that lead to this point where no one want to put together a proper open-source driver for mac as the work has already been done. Anyway if anyone needs some testers you can just PM me and I will be glad to help the best I can.
  3. Hi, just a little post to say i managed to make a Macpro 4,1 (why not any other) booting with only a nvidia GTX 275 using clover. This used to be possible using chameleon and a retail mac graphic card (last time I did this was with a mac nvidia 7300 GT and pc GTX 285). Now it's possible with clover as long as you don't install any clover UEFI drivers and disable all DSDT / ACPI / any patches from clover and only use the graphics injection (I don't see why ATI cards would fail to work as long as they have ATI drivers and FrameBuffer support /hack). I supposed this was possible as clover is an (U)EFI bootloader (like rEFIt) but I never tryed so far. So there it is. A quick and unpainfull upgrade from my old ATI Radeon HD 4870 witch was a real bummer on this station. Some of you could say "why don't you get a GTX 6xx or higher and boot retail or get a GTX 7xx or 9xx and install Nvidia Web drivers" well I don't know... /// I just thought it was good to know as there is not much people saying loud that this is possible on the web. Moreover this could be a good hack on the ATI side of things... Regards to the community, PM!
  4. What you need is VoodooTSCSync.kext for 6 cores (IOCPUNumber=11).
  5. This modified version of clover worked for me on Asus X99 Deluxe and EVGA GTX 780 with 10.10.2 Yosemite. That said may I ask what modification you did on the OsxAptioFixDrv ? A fix is a always great but it's always better with the explanation. Others may be able to accommodate the fix to their build :-) Thank's so much PM!
  6. Same problem here Asus X99 Deluxe (BIOS Version 1305) and Clover r3168. My graphic card is a GTX 970 4Gb (Gainward) I boot with slide=0 dart=0 npci=0x2000 nvda_drv=1 kext-dev-mode=1 I get the AptioFixDrv error as well since I use Nvidia Web drivers. On my other workstation Asus Z87X Deluxe Dual I had the same problem and it got solved by changing AptioFixDrv to AptioFixDrv2 but on the X99 it doesn't work I get an other similar error. CMS is enabled in BIOS i'll try to disable it but i'm pretty shure it won't change anything. I manage to boot back to the OS by deleting kextcaches from another computer (some do so from recovery partition) but the problem comes back every time I install a driver and sometimes without changing anything... I think the AptioFixDrv2 should be adapted to X99 motherboards but who am I to complain and give orders :-)

    Hi CodeRush, I managed to flash my BIOS (ASUS Z87 DELUXE DUAL) with the file you provided. Still I had to make a DSDT in order to get fully functional Sleep. Since bios flash I have a problem regarding the Realtek Ethernet latest driver causing KP. Is it possible or am I missing something else ? Thank you very much. I had to deal with the same issue installing the Z87 DELUXE DUAL. What a mess !
  8. First thing was to install using MBR and not GUID. Then I cloned my ML 10.8.4 OS and updated it to 10.8.5. Then installed chameleon r1152 Then i flashed my BIOS using PMPatch (needed to be renames correctly) and flashed with Asus USB Flash Back Edited a DSDT for sleep (as the flashed BIOS wasn't enough and I needed to edit DSDT anyway for my FireWire800 TI card). And that's it.

    Thank you for this BIOS. I will try it tomorrow. • What do you mean by naming it correctly ? Do I need to rename the file with the same name ASUS gave it in the first place ? Or do I keep the current name ? If it Still doesn't work I will try flashing with the original BIOS from ASUS as it's a good test to see if USB Flash Back function is not buggy on this version of the BIOS. Thanks fot your effort ! PM!
  11. No I have not managed to patch the BIOS. The USB Flash Back function doesn't takes the moded bios. The light goes still after a while and nothing happens. I think it needs a little more tweeking from CodeRush but I can't help him debugging the problem as there is no log of the operation. He told me to try with different USB drives which I did without success so far. EDIT : my mistake I wasn't renaming the CAP file correctly, a tool called ASUS BRenamer can help rename the bios file correctly fot UFB flashing.
  12. As netkas said a few days ago : 10.8.5 now supports Haswell cpu !

    i tried with many USB drives, none worked. Sorry i can't give you much report in order to improve your tool or correct my mistakes...
  14. I really start feeling like a noob... now i'm stuck on a black screen. I tried almost every combination : - PCIRootUID=1 or PCIRootUID=0 nope - GE Y/N nope -x -v nope -f GE=No -v nope My graphic card is a GTX 470 (EVGA) works pretty well on every other systems. Still NVDGF100HAL is "loaded and registrered" EDIT: OK i'm facing PEBCAC now, just looked into org.chameleon.Boot.plist and found that GraphicsEnabler wasn't writen... So it should work now...
  15. Yes i just red your topic and find out about this ! I'm trying right now. Thank's for that quick answer ! I'll report back later. EDIT : ddi you format your hard drive with MBR too ?
