  1. Hi Rockey, sorry for the late reply I have been away for a while. Thank you for your advice and the USB creation app. I will try 10.15 and report back. Thanks again.
  2. Hi Rockey, as always thank you for your time and advice. Very interesting info about the 10.15 patcher for creating the USB, does that mean I only need to install clover into the SSD after macOS is installed? No need clover on the USB? I will start doing the installations of 10.14 and 10.15 and report back. Thank you.
  3. Hi Rockey, thank you for your help. This DSDT gives me the same KP. I think it has to do with my config.plist not liking the DSDT. I am going to start over, at this point I need a fresh start. I will report back. Thank you for your time.
  4. Hi Rockey, thank you for your help. When I copy the patched DSDT into my ACPI patched folder the system won't boot. Attached is a photo. If I remove the DSDT it boots normally. Thank you.
  5. Hi Maldon, thank you for your help. I tried with the elements inside your modified clover folder but unfortunately I get a kernel panic upon boot with the DSDT. If I delete the DSDT from ACPI patched it boots normally. Thank you.
  6. Hi Maldon, how are you. Just wondering if you could give me a hand with the USB ports on my HP z800. I have installed macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and is all working fine except the USB ports are not working properly. They don't seem to delivering enough power. I have done research and my DSDT needs to be patched for the USB ports to behave normally. I don't know how to patch the DSDT but I would love to learn how to do it. Attached are the config.plist and DSDT generated with F4 in clover. Thank you. Archive.zip Send me z800.zip
  7. Hi Rockey, thank you very much for your files and your help. I have installed 10.12.6 on my z800 as I need Sierra for a project. It is all woking as it should, I used your files as reference to modify my own Config.plist. The problem I have is that the USB ports don't work properly. I have done research and it seems that my DSDT needs to be patched for the USB ports to work normally. I have seen some people delete AppleHPET.kext completely but I don't think that is necessary. If possible could you show me how to patch the DSDT I would really like to learn how to do it. When patched, would this DSDT work for High Sierra as well? Attached are my config.plist and my DSDT extracted with F4 in clover. Thank you again for your help. Archive.zip
  8. Hi guys, I am in the process of upgrading my z800 from 10.11.6 to 10.13.6. I am modifying my config.plist to create my bootable USB drive. I am using Rockey12 files as reference in order to modify from this post: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307064-hp-z400z600z800-workstations-os-x-1010x1011x-installation/?page=46&tab=comments#comment-2475176 Thank you Rockey. I would like to know if possible if you guys could share with me a screengrab of the Clover installation screen as I would like to know what options exactly I need to check or uncheck to make the bootable USB drive. Specs: 2x 6 cores @ 2.93 16GB RAM @ 1333 Thank you.
  9. Hi Rockey12 and Chris1111, just wanted to say thank you again for your efforts and the brilliant installer Clover DELL Precision 690 V4. I am still using 10.11.6 on my z800 and I was planning to install macOS 10.12 once the last update is released. I was wondering if I could still use the Clover DELL Precision 690 V4 installer app to create the USB for macOS 10.12 as I find it very straight forward. Rockey, if I want to modify the folder of the installer and add the appropriate files for 10.12 compatibility. Should I just add the modified config.plist + DSDT compatible with 10.12? Thanks again.
  10. Hi J Lamp, apologies for the late reply. Thank you for the advice, I stayed away from attempting PM on this machine for a while. One thing I have noticed is that the MSR lock seems to affect windows 10 as well, as performing the geekbench test gives me the same score. Thank again.
  11. Hi how are you guys. Just a quick question. I am trying to get power management working on my HP z820 it is running dual Sandy Bridge EP Xeon E5 2640. I have set the SMbios to Macpro 6.1. I followed all the steps on the tutorial, I patched the acpipm in clover I also created the SSDT for the system using: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -c 1 -w 3 -turbo 3000 which gives me a warning. The score on multicore geekbench is 24.000 which drops to 20.000 if I disable HyperThreading on the BIOS. Another thing I noticed is that the system won't boot unless I have checked: AsusAICPUPM in clover Please let me know any suggestions I could try. Thank you for your time.
  12. Hi E97, thank you for your reply. I am trying to get in contact with http://www.sixflow.net/ becauseI know how to get audio and USB3 working on the z420. On the freeboard I don't seem to see a way to write the post and when trying to sign in it asks for a phone number. I would like to download the attached files from the z420 and the Tyan build just to try a few things for stability on the z420 and z820. Thank you for advice and the links I will give that a try and let you know.
  13. Hi E97, how are you. I am trying to get power management working on my HP z820 with 10.11.5. It has dual xeons E5 2640 @ 2.5 Ghz. The geekbench right now on multicore is 20.000. I tried to turn off BIOS power management but I get the same results. I was looking into your thread here, could you please tell me how sign in so that I could post comments. http://sixflow.net/osx86/Freeboard/81510 Thank you.
  14. Hi guys, I have been using the z800 with 10.11.5 and it has been brilliant. The one thing I noticed is that the shut down problem got solved with the 10.11.5 update and I can now have wake on lan activated on the BIOS. Thanks again for all your help. One other interesting thing came up with my z420, I managed to install 10.11.5 using Enoch method and Clover. Both methods work but the with Enoch all the hardware is detected by default without any modifications. Please have a look at the screen grabs from the system info with each method. Just out of curiosity, why do you thing this is happening? Thank you
  15. Hi Rockey, The system is excellent. I will start using it every day to see how it performs. Thank you.
