  1. Hey MaLd0n! Could you please tell me what I need to fix my audio on Sierra? with your HS bootpack my audio got recognized without any changes. On Sierra I uses VoodoHDA, but with it sometimes my Microphone getting choppy, lagging and I have to replug to get it working again. I tried some method but didn't work
  2. back to native kexts, but same 5 MB. anyway, thanks for your help, and patience! I'll stay at Sierra.
  3. tried, only inject ati=true: no acceleration, but now recognized "AMD Radeon R9 270 5 MB"
  4. Injected garbage fbname "Aji", injected fakeid, removed lilu and whatevergreen, but no acceleration
  5. Okay, so I tried your cfg with and without FakeID, but same result. Only thing changed is that at info now showing "Display 5 MB" and not "AMD Radeon R9 270 5 MB"
  6. thanks! I rollbacked these kexts, and now system recognized my card as "AMD Radeon R9 270 5 MB" no acceleration again.. On Sierra it's good. Also I changed some lines in my High Sierra config.plist: I added <key>FakeID</key> <dict> <key>ATI</key> <string>0x68101002</string> </dict> and changed Inject ATI to true. Before these changes, same 5 MB result. I'll attach my config.plist and pictures r7_370_sierra_cfg.zip
  7. thanks for reply, now I have signal, but with "Display 5 MB" and there is an external monitor icon at top-right (see picture, also sorry I didn't change language to English yet) Tried to add radpg=15 to bootflags, but nothing changed. I saw on other page, that a rollback from Sierra (AMDFramebuffer, or other drivers) could solve this, but I did once and that completely messed up my system, so didn't tried once more. Also I have no idea what kexts needs to be roll-backed. Also I updated the WhateverGreen.kext on Sierra, and now my card recognized as "AMD Radeon R9 270 2048 MB" instead of "AMD Radeon HD 7xxx 2048 MB"

  9. Hi! Could anyone help me installing High Sierra on this system? I succesfully installed Sierra before on this system with help of Jake Lo (thanks!!), I just wondering if could High sierra possible to installed on this system? Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot. UEFI enabled, and for skylake I used IntelGraphicsDVMTfixup and IntelGraphicsFixup kexts. My bios is very limited and does not have any option to change dvmt prealloc or anything else. Everything works fine on Sierra. Here is my system: Acer Aspire V15 V5-591G-55TU (Note: Bootpack works fine with another versions of 591G, for example: V5-591G-71K2, -764Z, -59PU, etc.) Mobo: Skylake USOPP_SLS Bios: Insyde corp latest version CPU: Intel Core i5-6300HQ 2.30 GHz (Skylake) GPU: Geforce GTX 950M 2 GB (optimus, disabled), Intel HD 530 Ram: 8 GB DDR4 (4+4 GB) Wifi: Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A, Replaced to BCM94352Z Ethernet: Realtek 8168B/8111B Audio: ALC 255 (layout-3 fix) Card Reader: Realtek HDD: 1 TB Dual-boot with Windows 10 Any help appreciated!

Sleep Mode: In High Sierra sleep mode not worked for me natively. Inject custom EDID to fix the blank screen after wake from sleep See here for instruction (thanks black.dragon74 and Jake Lo !!) Please add these 2 patches to ACPI\DSDT\Patches in your config.plist in order to avoid not responding applications after sleep: (added in "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip") HECI to IMEI 48454349 494d4549 EC0 to EC 4543305f 45435f5f Before updating to a new version of High Sierra please update kexts to new versions to avoid kernel panics Note: No need for "IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup.kext" so you should delete it. Not working: Original Wi-Fi: Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle. NVIDIA GTX 950M: Optimus not supported. Card Reader: Unsupported For WiFi: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used tp-link Archer T1U (5GHz support), Tp-link have official macOS drivers, you just need to install it (OR)Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kext I wrote above I'll attach my EFI folder for anyone who want to install High Sierra (acer_aspire_v5_591g_55tu_hs.zip). *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here). I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide: Dual-boot clean install (on one drive): 1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart, 3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition). Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive): If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope: You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it). (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB) 1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac. 2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created. 3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image. 4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb. 5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT! 6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above. 7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS! (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.) IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE: Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc): Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found) It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI, but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_Q8uPkwcWQ Here some pictures:
  10. @matey82 Give a try, add these to "ACPI\DSDT\Patches" in your config.plist <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change HECI to IMEI</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> SEVDSQ== </data> <key>Replace</key> <data> SU1FSQ== </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change EC0 to EC</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> RUMwXw== </data> <key>Replace</key> <data> RUNfXw== </data> </dict>
