    Thanks for the hint Dr. Hurt. I tried with embedded theme without success. Would you mind sharing the settings you're using that work?

    Clover General discussion

    Hey guys, has anyone found a fix for the "Timeout 0" issue? I'm still getting the prompt without auto selection with it unless I use "Timeout 1".
  4. I must say, I'm impressed. Smaller, has not given me a single glitch so far, extremely fast, first driver to allow me to reach 106MB/s on a Gb ethernet card, from hack 1 to hack 2, both with Mausi. Mieze, I've been following the idea of this driver for a very long time, and now that it is here, I can't thank you enough! Super Kudos!

    Clover General discussion

    Hey guys, it has been a while and oh boy, projectosx is gone too... Anyway, I upgraded Clover from r2953 to r3193, no config changes, and suddenly, my "automatic" boot stopped working. Trying to search this topic for information yielded a few results, but that was with people using the wrong volume name, and I'm using DefaultVolume with GUID. I've been playing with it, timeout 1 and timeout 0 on boot section, and sure enough, timeout 1 works, but 0 doesn't anymore. This system has a Fusion Drive, thus why "Boot OS X". So, with timeout 1, here are the relevant portions of boot.log: 0:108 0:008 Using OEM config.plist at path: EFI\CLOVER\config.plist 0:108 0:000 EFI\CLOVER\config.plist loaded: Success 0:108 0:000 Loading early settings 0:108 0:000 timeout set to 1 0:108 0:000 Custom boot CUSTOM_BOOT_DISABLED (0x0) ... 0:838 0:000 GetEfiBootDeviceFromNvram: efi-boot-device-data not found 0:838 0:000 EfiBootVolume not found 0:838 0:000 found entry 0.

Would anyone have any idea of what could be holding the startup from automatically continuing to the default option? I've noticed the "Boot option" extra line, but I have no clue of what it means.
  6. Well, quick update. I gave up on the iMac 14,2. Disabled IGPU in BIOS and rolled back to SMBIOS of a Mac Pro 3,1. Everything works perfectly now. My iMessages and FaceTime are locked again and I'll have to call Apple again, but other than that, all good. I was hoping for additional functionality with the iMac 14,2, specially since the processor is the same yada yada... but that just brought issues. I haven't tried only with the IGPU, but if I were to do that, I would have bought a Mac Mini already. I wanted the power GPU, and here the hackintosh is, hehe.
  7. Hey DeathSquad, yes, I do have a secondary GPU. Details are on the first post as well my signature, an ATi Radeon HD 7950. Do you have your IGPU on in BIOS? Which CPU?
  8. Yep, it has something to do with CoreVideo or whatever the heck is used through the entire system. For example, even Mouse in System Preferences comes up messed up: But if I close that and open it again, it comes up ok. This only happens with the IGPU enabled in bios. I remember in Mavericks it even happened on Maps, perhaps issues with CoreImage too. The problem is, I have the system as iMac 14,2, and before, I had it as Mac Pro 3,1. I changed because that would be a more "close to my specs" hardware definition, but then, with the IGPU disabled in BIOS, I started having crashes with Flash videos, or any videos, even Apple ones from their website on browsers. Enabling the IGPU fixed that, but now there is corruption everywhere. I've found somewhere a guy mentioning that if you put iMac 14,2 you'll have those crashes in videos. Perhaps I should try to bring it back to Mac Pro 3,1 with IGPU disabled again. Just would be nice to check if someone else has had any luck fixing this. ?
  9. Hi, This is what happens with videos: Back in Mavericks I had this issue of video artifacts and all I had to do was disable the integrated Intel GPU, and everything worked. However, with Yosemite, I found that if I don't enable the IGPU, videos on browsers won't play, like on youtube, facebook, even apple's website videos will present issues, always returning with "PlugIn Failed". Also, even FaceTime is failing with video playback. Video files icon previews are also messed up. So I turned the IGPU back to enabled on BIOS, but now the old video artifact / glitch is back. If I try again, like calling on FaceTime again or just reloading the page with video, it will play ok. But the first time it is almost certain that it will fail with that issue. Would anyone have any idea on how to tackle this? My specs are: Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP Intel i5-4670k 16GB Clover 2953 - UEFI boot
  10. You said you tried it on two different computers. Are those two Hackintoshes? I ask because I wouldn't blame ANY USB 3.0 hardware when running directly on Motherboard USB 3.0 chipsets. I've been head butting for months until I finally gave up and bought a $30 PCIe USB 3.0 card that works with OS X for Mac Pros and now everything is perfect, but before that, everything was messed up here and there.
  11. Hehehe, I've forgotten a few times myself, just trying to help.
  12. Or this: - Check the value, then set the value, then check the value again: $sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Print IOKitPersonalities:e1000e:NETIF_F_TSO" /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntelE1000e.kext/Contents/Info.plist Password: true sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Set IOKitPersonalities:e1000e:NETIF_F_TSO false" /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntelE1000e.kext/Contents/Info.plist sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Print IOKitPersonalities:e1000e:NETIF_F_TSO" /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntelE1000e.kext/Contents/Info.plist false That way you avoid having to teach "vi" to someone, hehe
  13. Assuming you're talking about a HDD, that wouldn't surprise me. In my tests, a usb 3.0 capable external drive was providing about 30mb/s under usb 2.0, but jumped to 90mb/s or more when I plugged it into usb 3.0. It is 3 times the speed and the workload way higher. Now, if the drive keeps hot even when you're not accessing it for anything, that could be a problem, but if it only keeps hot while you're using it, that is probably normal.
  14. This is such a great tool! One thing I would like to know is where did you find the Clover -> Intel USB 3.0 Patch? I want to see if I can implement that directly on Clover without having to change the .kext, but I couldn't find it.
  15. Just would like to add that I just did all the tests I mentioned in my previous post with GenericUSBXHCI and the results are the same, leading me to think that there is something wrong with the freaking UEFI / BIOS implementation. Joy... now I almost wish I had not bought a Gigabyte with their "improved" usb stuff. And one more thing. At one of my attempts to connect an external HD, somehow, one of my case ports is not working as well as it should. At once the connection was made as USB 3.0 only, then I remove the drive, curse it, put it back on and it gets USB 3.0 SupperSpeed. Once again, System Information is the way to go to know how fast the device was recognized.
