  1. Greetings @MaLd0n, can you help me please with DSDT edits? The one you sent me stopped working after a new bios came out for my board. Here I attached the new SendMe folder generated by the RunMe app. I'm using High Sierra 10.13.16 (still waiting for nVidia to release drivers for Mojave). Thank you very much in advance for your time and help Send me Onays-iMac.zip
  2. Hi @MaLd0n, thank you once again for all your help. I looked at the Clover folder you sent me and I have a few questions. 1 - In clover config.plist the options “debug=0x100” and “Verbose” are enabled, I thought those options were only for debugging purposes and they should be off normally, am I wrong about this? 2 - On KextsToPatch section of Clover Configurator I see 4 patches related to USB ports limit, is it ok to have them all enabled at the same time? Also, the patch called “ALPM IO Error” patch is disabled. 3 - In SMBIOS section I see you recommends iMac18,2. Do you think it’s better than iMac18,3? 4 - In the “drivers64uefi” folder, the file “AppleUI Support” is present. I know this file is part of the AppleSupport Package project, and according to its GitHub project page, this file replaces the files: “AppleKeyMapAggregator.efi”, “AppleEvent.efi”, “AppleUiTheme.efi”, “FirmwareVolume.efi” and “AppleImageCodec.efi” . All of them are present in the folder at the same time, is it ok to keep them all at the same time or should I erase the deprecated ones? Again, thank you for your time, your patience and your help.
  3. Greetings @MaLd0n, first of all a big THANK YOU for the tremendous work you do in helping us to keep our hackingtoshes working as they should. I need help with my hackingtosh. You have helped me in the past creating DSDT edits for my KabyLake build, and after some time I have new Bios and Hardware, so here I am asking for your help once again. I think that all the info I can provide you about my build will help you to help me, so here it goes (if I miss something important please let me know). I used your newest runme.app to create the folder you need as you request in the Post, I attached the “sendMe” folder in this message. My hardware: Asus ROG Maximus Hero IX Z270 Intel Core i7 7700K 32GB RAM Gskill TridentZ RGB OCZ Vertex 460 SSD 128GB Asus ROG Strix GTX 1070 OC (Nvidia) graphics card I have enabled both my graphics processors: the intel HD onboard graphics and also the dedicated graphics card GTX 1070. I mainly use my hackingtosh for video editing with Adobe Products (Premiere Pro and After Effects) and also Apple products (FinalCut Pro X 10.4 and Motion). Despite the fact that I have enabled both graphics, I use only one monitor (a VGA only AOC monitor connected to an HDMI port on my GTX 1070 (via a VGA to HDMI adapter). I used to had the intel HD graphics disabled, but I’ve read that Final Cut ProX uses Intel acceleration in conjunction with the dedicated GTX 1070 graphics card to improve render times and video editing in general, so I enabled both graphics in order to improve FinalCut ProX performance. I’ve read many things about having both graphics enabled and the info I’ve read contradicts each other. The SMBIOS I use is 18,3 (the closest to my hardware), but I’ve read that it can be counterproductive since the original iMac 18,3 has an AMD card and I have an Nvidia card. Please, can you give me some advice on this? Should I keep both graphics enabled and keep using the 18,3 smbios? In Bios configuration I have enabled multi monitor option, main graphic card option is set to AUTO, and DVMT set to 512MB, is this ok? Also I have disabled my two ASMEDIA 3.1 USB controllers toad Thunderbolt controllers ¿Is this necessary? With my current Clover configuration (SMBIOS iMac 18,3) I have some lags in my system (macOS 10.13.6), specially when I close an app. When I close an app (or even a webpage in Safari), the system freezes for almost a second (mouse pointer included) and when the app (or the webpage) closes, it becomes responsive again. I haven’t been able to find the cause of this, I’ve tried using SMBIOS iMac 18,2 and the lag is gone, but I honestly can say the lag is because of SMBIOS iMac 18,3 since I can’t say my Clover Options/Kexts are optimally configured. I'm using current nVidia web drivers for 10.13.6 (WebDriver-387. My other concern is that all the kexts we used to use for fixing graphics (IntelGraphics Fixup, Nvidia Graphics Fixup and Shiki for video acceleration) are now merged into Whatevergreen. And I’ve read that Whatevergreen has a new way to identify Intel graphics and patch framebuffers, making all the patches on ACPI section of clover (changing GFX0 to IGPU, HECI to IMEI, etc) and injectors options obsolete, is this true? More info about it here: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/334899-intel-framebuffer-patching-using-whatevergreen/ Thank you so much for your time and help. Onay. Send me Onays-iMac.zip
  4. Hello @Mald0n and thank you so much for your help. I replaced my CLOVER folder with the one you kindly sent me, rebooted (extracted tables with F4 at Clover Boot Menu) and created a new dump as you asked me to do, I attached the file here. My Intel Graphics memory reported by the system (about this MAC) is 1536MB, is this normal? How much DVMT should I allocate in my BIOS? Thank you again for your tremendous help. THANK YOU.

  5. Good Evening @MaLdon and thank you for helping us users to get our macOS working fine. I need help with my Clover Configuration and also creating DSDT edits. I updated my motherboard’s bios to the last update, also I ran your utility app (RunMe) and attached the file it generated. I'm on macOS High Sierra 10.13.5. My Pc hardware is as follows: My motherboard is an Asus Maximus Hero IX 200 Series. My processor is an Intel i7 7700K I have 32 GB RAM TridentZ RGB (4x8GB) I don’t have a dedicated Graphics Card, only onboard graphics (I believe it’s Intel HD6300 since my processor is Intel i7 7700K). I use my computer for Video Edition (Adobe Software + Apple Final Cut) and music production, so video acceleration is very important (Intel Quicksync). I used to have a dedicated graphics card (Nvidia GTX 760) but it died, so now I have only my Intel HD graphics which I need help to make it work. As you will see in my configs file, I changed my SMBIOS from iMac 18,3 to iMac 17,1 because the graphics used to flick a lot with iMac 18,3. I read in some forums that changing it to iMac 17,1 would solve the problem and it did, now there’s no flickering, but I don’t know if the graphics are working at 100% speed with this SMBIOS. Thank you for your help. Also, in my Clover/ACPI/Patched folder, you’ll see a file called SSDT-UIAC. It’s a SSDT file for proper USB configuration of USBInjectAll. I followed Rehab Man’s tutorial for creating a custom SSDT for my USBs. Using IOreg I tested all my ports with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices and wrote down all the ports reported as active in IOreg. I have 18 ports as follows: The following two ports are located on the front of my case and they are both connected to only one (1) internal USB3.0 port on my motherboard), I declared them as USB3.0 in the SSDT file: HS01 - SS01 HS02 - SS02 Is it correct to declare both of them as USB3.0 or should I declare them as internal? There are four (4) USB3.0 ports located at the back of the motherboard, I declared them as USB3.0 in the SSDT file: HS03 - SS03 HS04 - SS04 HS05 - SS05 HS06 - SS06 There are four (4) USB2.0 located at the back of the motherboard. I declared them as USB2.0 in th SSDT file. HS07 HS08 HS09 HS10 The following are two USB2.0 ports located on the front of my case (they are both connected to only one (1) internal USB2.0 port on my motherboard), I declared them as usb2.0 in the SSDT file: HS13 HS14 Is it correct to declare both of them as USB2.0 or should I declare them as internal? Like I told you before, I have 18 ports because usb 3.0 has a 3.0 denomination (for example HS03) and also a 2.0 denomination (for example SS03), and both of them have to be declared as active in the SSDT file, so, I have 6 usb 3.0 ports (4 in the back of the mobo and two in the front of my case), that would be 12 denominations or ports in total plus 6 usb2.0 ports (4 at the back of the mobo plus two more at the front of my case). I read that the purpose of creating a custom SSDT for USBInjectAll is to eliminate the unused ports and that way usb falls below 15 ports, so we can eliminate the 15 port limit patch, but in my case I have 18, so I have to keep using the 15 port limit patch, is this correct? Please forgive my lack of knowledge and if I have omitted any useful info. Once again thanks for your help. Send me Onays-iMac.zip
