    XFX Radeon HD 5770

    Hello, I am attempting to configure XFX Radeon HD 5770 (0x68B8) in 'El Captain' and 'Yosemite' -- so far without success. Clover EFI installer log - Mon Oct 1 12:32:38 PDT 2018 Installer version: v2.4k r4674 EFI bootloader In the attempt: 1. Edited EFI/CLOVER/OEM/P5KPL-VM ........................................ <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>Fixes</key> <dict> <key>AddDTGP</key> <true/> <key>FixDisplay</key> <true/> <key>FixHDA</key> <true/> <key>FixHPET</key> <true/> <key>FixIPIC</key> <true/> </dict> ....................................... <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>FBName</key> <string>Vervet</string> <key>Inject</key> <dict> <key>ATI</key> <true/> </dict> <key>VideoPorts</key> <integer>4</integer> <key>PatchVBios</key> <true/> </dict> When computer boots I able to see black screen with apple logo and progress bar advancing to about 55%-60% and then it stays at this level. I got filling that the system boots successfully but there is no video. My understanding is that Radeon HD 5770 supposedly should be recognised by OS if device id is 0x68B8 (exactly what my video card identified in linux or PCI_ID). I even attempted to inject Fake_ID 0x68B81002 for ATI card but it has changed nothing -- same behavour. At this moment I am writing this message on same computer (P5KPL-VM) booted into El Capitan (10.11.6) with installed GeForce GT 8400 video card. I attach original DSDT extracted through Clover F4 and Video BIOS extracted through F6. My guess is that I have missed something in my attempt. I had previously a success with Radeon HD 5450 in other computer by injecting FakeID for ATI card and modifying 'Graphics' section of config.plist Clover bootloader. (NOTE: Radeon HD 5450 works well upto 'Sierra', I was not able to get this card properly in 'High Sierra' -- system recognizes only 7MB of VRAM and not video acceleration works) I would appreciate any thoughts what can be wrong and why Radeon HD 5770 video card is not recognized by OS X. Thank you, osx151212 DSDT_origin.zip c0000.bin

    Sierra doesn't recognise my GPU (GTX 650)

    Hi jorgedx21, 1. please make a copy of your config.plist for backup purpose 2. use 'Clover Configurator' open config.plist and generate new 'SMBIOS' for iMac 13,2 save config.plist file 3. boot with new SMBIOS https://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download-clover-configurator/ I speak from own experience video card GeForce 650 Ti did not work properly for me with SMBIOS iMac 10,1 - but with iMac 13,2 the video card works just fine. Do not forget to adjust number of VideoPorts in config.plist file to match your hardware. https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/configuration/graphics#graphics_videoports Also it is not bad idea to apply 'PatchVBios' in config.plist file -- it will make Clover's GUI look properly scaled for your screen. https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/configuration/graphics#graphics_patchvbios NOTE: if you used any patches then transfer them into new config.plist -- I suggest you to have EFI partition with configuration for your system (when you install 'Clover' select an option to install in ESP) and keep patches/kexts and configuration there. It will allow you to update your computer and avoid troubles -- you will have clean OSX installation which will not have any problem to update itself. It is preferable if you keep your modifications in CLOVER/OEM/'System' folder -- where 'System' matches your computer (you will find how the directory should be named - if you select 'Boot.log' in 'Clover Configurator'). The purpose of the directory /EFI/CLOVER/OEM/ -- https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/what-is-what NOTE #2: I have P5H55-LX mainboard for some inexplicable reason I can not install 'High Sierra' -- the installer can see SATA disk but does not see partitions in it, if same disk connected through 'SATA to USB' adapter then 'High Sierra' has no any issue with installation. It is a weird problem which does not have any explanation (BIOS update had no any effect) NOTE #3: you did not provide your manufacture:deviceid -- my video card is supported out of box, my guess is that your's should work as well. But if your manufacture:deviceid is not registered in the driver then you have to 'fake' it as supported (allow Clover to patch on the fly your DSDT) You can get manufacturer:deviceid with 'DPCIManager' - https://sourceforge.net/projects/dpcimanager/ osx151212

    XFX Radeon 5770 wrong VRAM size of 7MB (Sierra 10.12.6)

    Hi, I've following 'Graphics' section in CLOVER config.plist file <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <dict> <key>ATI</key> <false/> </dict> <key>LoadVBios</key> <false/> <key>PatchVBios</key> <true/> </dict> and following kexts/10.12 bash-3.2# ls kexts/10.12 AppleHDADisabler.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext WhateverGreen.kext.dSYM Lilu.kext VoodooHDA.kext WhateverName.app Lilu.kext.dSYM WhateverGreen.kext bash-3.2# at boot time I see Apple logo and progress bar reaching close to 45% -- and screen stays not changed after that. I am able to login the machine over ssh and can mount EFI partition -- it allows me to modify content of EFI partition and to reboot the machine. I also have checked that /System/Library/Extensions/AMD5000Controller.kext/Contents/Info.plist has following section <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x68981002 0x68991002 0x68E01002 0x68E11002 0x68D81002 0x68C01002 0x68C11002 0x68D91002 0x68B81002 0x68B01002 0x68B11002 0x68A01002 0x68A11002 </string> my graphics card matches -- 0x68B81002 osx151212
  4. Hello, I have a computer (P7H55M-LX mainboard) with Sierra (10.12.6) which was using GeForce 8400GT and works perfectly (sleep and wake). I decided to give a try other video card XFX ATI Radeon 5770 1GB instead time tested GeForce 8400GT. Clover boot loader config.plist was modified in 'Graphics' section to include InjectATI, FB Vervet, 4 connectors. The boot process stopped at 'white apple on black background'. I have rebooted the computer and booted with options '-f -x -v' and FixDisplay DSDT patch. The computer booted but right at login it was clear the acceleration does not work. Further I checked out 'About this Mac' and it looks like ATI Radeon 5770 is recognized (confirmed with preboot.log) but amount of VRAM is 7MB instead of 1GB. I've attempted to edit config.plist and add VRAM 1024 (MB) but next boot still shows only 7MB. What am I doing wrong? Please let me know what information you will require to assist in resolution of this issue. NOTE: I have no previous experience with ATI Radeon cards in hackintosh. Thank you, osx151212 bootlog.txt
  5. Hello, I am looking for a help with 'High Sierra' installation on 'P7H55M-LX' mainboard (BIOS 0406). Configuration Mainboard: P7H55M-LX (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P7H55M_LX/HelpDesk_Download/) BIOS: 0406 (SATA in ACHI mode) CPU: i3 540 RAM: 4GB HDD: WD 500GB BLUE NIC: onboard SOUND: onboard VIDEO: GeForce 8400 Clover - r4111: <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x67</string> Some details: I am able to install 'High Sierra' on a disk (WD 500GB Blue) connected through 'SATA to USB' adapter -- the computer boots and works properly. If the same disk connected to internal SATA port (Port 1 and Port 5 was tried) then installation proceeds to the point where 'Disk Utility' should allow me to partition disk. 'Disk Utility' can see the disk but I can not partition it. I have searched the internet, there was suggestions to erase the 'raw' disk - this operation ends with an error 'Unable to write last block of the device'. No matter what I tried to do in 'Disk Utility' of 'High Sierra' (10.13.x) I can not partition the disk. It looks like 'Disk Utility' can detect the disk but can not 'talk' to it properly. I was able to install and update 'Sierra' into this disk connected to internal SATA port in same computer, there was not issue to partition the disk. The computer after installation performed well, NIC/Sound worked properly with extra kexts, the computer goes into sleep and wakes properly. I can partition the disk if I boot 'Knoppix Live' linux (EFI, HSF+ partitions, MSDOS, EXT3/4), then again after loading 'High Sierra' installation to the point 'Disk Utility' -- I face same issue with the disk partition (or to be more correct SATA access). I was able to partition the disk in 'Disk Utility' of 'Sierra' (10.12.x) installation, if I reboot and proceed with 'High Sierra' install -- then it does not see created in previous step partitions. I am mystified by this problem, it is obvious that the problem is not with the disk but that 'High Sierra' installation is not able to communicate properly on SATA with the disk. If I try to boot same disk with 'High Sierra', pre-installed through 'SATA to USB' adapter, then boot process stops with a message about 'apfs' and after a while gives 'still waiting for root device' then immediately the screen gets garbled. I've attempted to boot with an options '-x -v -f npci=0x2000 /0x3000 PCIRootID=1/0', Clover ACPI DSDT patching (AddDTPG, FixHPET, FixIPIC, FixSATA, FixUSB) in various combinations with same outcome. I've tried SATA in ACHI mode, IDE mode (Enhanced/Compatibility) without any success. BIOS was flashed from version 0402 to 0406 with no change. Does anybody faced this issue and know about a solution? osx151212 CLOVER.zip

    El capitan hackintosh kext and bootloader

    Hello, it is late reply on this post. What I found odd is that there is no EFI partition (disk0s1) was created during installation. Due this factor Clover will have 'difficult time' to install boot loader into partition which does not exist (as indicated in the error message). osx151212
  7. Hello, I had a computer with following configuration laying around Mainboard: P5LP-LE (HP Leonite) CPU: E4300 RAM: 4GB DDR2 NIC: on board SOUND: on board VIDEO: GeForce 8400 Mainboard specs: https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c00864946 The computer was installed with 'El Capitan' (10.11.6) and works very well (sleep/wakeup). Please find attached file CLOVER.zip which hold a directory 'LEONITE' which should be placed into CLOVER/OEM directory. IMPORTANT: It was found that CLOVER higher than version 3998 does not allow to load network kext, due this reason use CLOVER upto version 3998 https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/files/Installer/ NOTE: Installation of 'Sierra' and 'High Sierra' requires SSE4.1 is not possible -- this board only supports CPUs upto core 2 duo E6x00/E4x00 which do not include SSE4.1 P5LP-LE board has 'Award' BIOS and potentially it could be possible to modify BIOS to support newer CPUs (E7x00/E8x00) -- not tested Visit next website for additional information https://www.delidded.com/lga-771-xeon-microcode/ osx151212 CLOVER.zip
  8. Hello, Today I've attempted to update CPU in HP desktop computer with Xeon E5405. The BIOS was updated to support Xeon CPUs. The computer boots fine (passes POST), Linux can be booted without any issues. But attempt to boot High Sierra (Sierra, El Capitan -- all previously installed on E8500 CPU) through 'Clover' (bootloader itself loads fine) immediately 'spit out' CPU dump. Is there solution for this situation? osx151212

    Dual boot :: El Capitan + Win 10 on GPT ?

    Carlo_67, this is an old computer with BIOS (no UEFI), it has Clover bootloader which located in EFI partition of HDD with GPT. The Windows installer refuses to install on HDD with GPT. I did search on internet and it looks like diskpart disk list select disk clean <-- removes partition table exit I tend to believe that diskpart clean removes partition table completely. Correct me if I am wrong... osx151212

    HP Leonite DSDT errors

    MaLd0n, I've tried iMac6,1 and got response 'this platform is not supported' -- my understanding El Capitan requires newer hardware. https://everymac.com/mac-answers/os-x-el-capitan-faq/os-x-el-capitan-compatible-macs-system-requirements.html osx151212

    HP Leonite DSDT errors

    MaLd0n, could you clarify on 'use acpi6,1' -- do you mean Mac6,1 in Clover? Is DSDT.aml.zip fixed file? Thanks, osx151212
  12. Hello, a couple days ago I've attempted to install Windows 10 on a machine running Clover 4411 and El Capitan (same HDD with GPT). I looked on internet for this subject and it was not fully clear how to proceed with the installation. I used my USB drive which I normally use for Windows 10 installation -- booted from this USB drive and started installation. Once I got to the disk part the windows installer informed that it can not install on HDD with GPT partition table. It was odd as information on internet stated that GPT installation Windows 10 is possible. I followed some instruction to create USB drive with Rufus utility and format it in GPT. Tried to boot from this drive and same issue Windows 10 can not install on GPT table. I've attempted to boot USB drive through Clover bootloader but got a message that USB disk probably corrupted and I was offered to press "Alt+Ctrl+Del" to reboot the computer. Now the question: does anybody succeed in installing Windows 10 on the same HDD as El Capitan (Sierra/High Sierra) formatted with GPT partition table? If the answer is 'yes' is there an instruction how it should be done? Thank you for help, osx151212

    HP Leonite DSDT errors

    MaLd0n, please see original files obtained through Clover bootloader F4 attached to this message. osx151212 DSDT origin.zip
  14. Hello, Can somebody help me to fix an errors with compiling DSDT for HP LEONITE mainboard (P5LP-LE)? DSDT, SSDT files are attached to this message. Thank you in advance, osx151212 DSDT Fix.zip
  15. Hello, I have Dell Vostro 220s system with following configuration System: Dell Vostro 220s Mainboard: P301D CPU: E8500 Video: GeForce 8500 GT NIC: RTL8111 Sound: ALC662 macOS: High Sierra (10.13.3) Bootloader: Clover v2.4 r4411, r4392 Works: boots, Video, NIC, sleep/wake Need fix: Sound The installation of High Sierra 10.13.3 went smooth and everything work except sound chip ALC662. So far an attempts to fix sound problem was not resolved in best way, only VoodooHDA.kext allows to produce sound. AppleHDA patcher v1.8 -- patch for DSDT.aml, patch for config.plist and aDummy.kext did not work AppleALC.kext + Lilu.kext -- produces an assert for any layout-id except 12 which does not work (boot stops with assertion) I am not sure what else could be tried to make ALC662 on this mainboard to work properly, there is some 'black magic' why this chip refuses to work in this configuration. Note: MaciASL extracts and compiles DSDT without any error. NOTE #1: AppleALC.kext + Lilu.kext allows ALC662 codec chip on P5GC-MX_1333 mainboard to work very well -- sleep/wake up works perfectly. At the same time AppleHDA patcher v1.8 does not resolve the issue with P5GC-MX_1333 board -- some post on internet states that Clover bootloader does not patch codec properly (I have some doubts in this statement). NOTE #2: VoodooHDA.kext resolves the issue with ALC662 but brakes sleep/wake feature -- undesirable solution. Please let me know your ideas how the problem can be resolved (Windows/Linux can use ALC662 without any problem). osx151212
