    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    How complicated would it be to add my own sensor data into this? Say my motherboard has something connected to the T_SENSOR header, what would be the steps to getting that to appear in the OS? I'm fairly good with programming in other languages, so I can follow steps easily enough.

    FileVault 2

    I switched GPU recently and now get the same issue. It seems that the FV2 login screen doesn't like it if CSM is disabled in the BIOS and the CSM Clover driver isn't installed. However, enabling both of these causes an issue with my 2nd monitor not working after boot. Basically, the Apple logo stays on for 20-30 seconds before the login screen appears. Asus Z170 Pro w/ i7-6700k, RX 580 8GB and MacOS 14.1 with the most recent versions of AppleSupport and AptioInput/MemoryFix and FakeSMC.

    FileVault 2

    Asus Z170 Pro w/ i7-6700k and GTX 970 running MacOS 10.13.6 and latest Clover I've started having some minor issues since switching to the AppleSupportPKG with FV2. Firstly, the Apple logo used to immediately give way to the FV login screen after selecting it in the Clover menu, now it pauses for around 5-10 seconds. Secondly, the UI on the login screen appears sluggish, and when I enter my password, it tells me I've entered an incorrect password before then continuing to boot around 10 seconds later with no further entered password input. I can still boot okay, just rather annoying. The drivers I'm using are: ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi AppleImageLoader.efi AppleUISupport.efi AptioInputFix.efi AptioMemoryFix.efi DataHubDxe-64.efi FSInject-64.efi HFSPlus-64.efi SMCHelper-64.efi For kexts, I've got AppleALC, FakeSMC, IntelMausi, Lilu, USBInject and WhateverGreen ... all latest.
  4. I've got an MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC graphics card. I've extracted the binary VBIOS file for it via the Clover shortcut. I was wondering if it's possible to patch in overclocking either the core clock, memory clock or power settings via the Clover function? I don't really know what to look for in the hex file once I've opened it in Hex Fiend. I've tried converting the clock speeds to hex, then reversing the 2-digit blocks, but I don't get any hits. Any tips on how to go about this?
  5. My system will only boot if I have CSM enabled in my BIOS. High Sierra 10.13 SysDef: 17,1 FileVault2: enabled SSD: APFS formatted Kexts: AppleALC, Lilu, NvidiaGraphicsFixup, NVWebDriverLibValFix, USBInjectAll, CodecCommander. Drivers: EmuVariableUefi, Aptio2, DataHubDxe, Vbox Without CSM it goes blank after the Display handover w/o FileVault or straight away w/ FileVault enabled.

    Clover Custom GUI Entries with APFS

    Got them both assigned to entries already, and neither is picked up.
  7. After upgrading to High Sierra, I also converted to APFS and enabled FileVault. Everything's working mostly fine, but got a couple of minor issues: (1) Is there any way to disable the verbose boot that apfs.efi chucks out before the Clover boot menu? (2) To boot w/ FileVault enabled, I have to select a Clover boot menu icon called 'Preboot'. However, I can't seem to find a volume or path ID which will enable me to create a custom entry for it on my Clover Configurator GUI -> Custom Entries menu. Is this because it's all synthesized inside an APFS container? Any way to create a custom entry for Preboot?

    FileVault 2

    I'm having one minor issue with FV2 enabled. When I enter my password and the system starts booting, the progress bar is surrounded by the colours of my desktop background, but the rest of the screen is black/grey. Is there any way to make them the same (I don't mind which)?

    GTX 970 Not Working Without CSM

    I'm trying to work out how to ditch having CSM enabled on my BIOS since it messes up the boot process and sends POST to my 2nd monitor (which isn't always on). At the moment, if I go into my BIOS and disable CSM, then my system will boot, but seemingly without loading the web drivers (very slow, stuttery display, same as booting without web driver when first installing a hackintosh). Furthermore, if I change my display settings in BIOS from Auto, to PEG, then my main display (Display Port) dies completely and then the 2nd display will die before the final MacOS process loads. Got Lilu and Driver fix installed already.

    CSM Causing Me Problems

    i7-6700k / Asus Z170 Pro / MSI GTX 970 / MacOS 10.12.6 / Sys Def 17,1 Monitors: Primary: LG Ultrawide (Display Port) Secondary: Acer 1080p (DVI-D) I'm having an issue recently with my dual display setup. If I boot with CSM enabled in the BIOS then only my secondary display works until the OS loads. If I boot with CSM disabled, then the boot screen/BIOS shows correctly on my primary display, but once the boot process hands over to the OS (when the loading bar reaches about half-way) then the video output dies and both of my monitors stay blank. Any ideas? Obviously I can work with the wrong monitor handling boot, but I'd prefer to have everything work properly. Thanks in advance.
  11. You have to open the xcodproj file with XCode and then build it for your system.

    Asus Z170 Pro - No Audio w/ Sleep

    Wow. Thanks MaLd0n, that's very kind of you. I've put it in my "EFI > Clover > ACPI > Patched" folder, hope that's the right place. Everything seems to be working still. What will that DSDT file have done? I know it's to do with power management, but that's about all I know.

    Asus Z170 Pro - No Audio w/ Sleep

    Okay. That seems to be working now. How come my iMessage is still working? I thought if you changed system definition, you had to redo the registration process? Can I copy my GUI preferences back to this new config.plist for the Clover bootscreen?

    That's already in the first post under iMac.zip.. or did you mean an updated one after all the changes?
