  1. Hi All, Original High Sierra guide for HP Zxxx works Ok 1:1 to Mojave also, no need for new HP Zxxx Mojave guide. Even I, as a beginner (Newbie) in Hackintosh world, managed to install Mojave to my Z820. And IF you have any model of NVidia graphics card, sorry, High Sierra is the highest for you. Apple dropped NVidia support totally in Mojave & Catalina due NVidias own "bad co-operation & problems". You have to buy AMD graphics card! I have RX580 and it has Native support. Mainly my problems were issued to "I didn't read guide carefully from word to word before doing something" - jumping too fast to things without knowing what I was doing got me troubles (as I was from Windows world, but also knowing Linux helped me). Big Thanks to Bilbo, Antonio, others as they helped me to understand things and kindly corrected me where I had done my errors - learned quite much on the way... Getting PM working was actually easy, just stick with the guide. My problem was related to wrong SW version of that ssdtPRGEN - correct version was the "beta" version (latest). I downloaded the older as I thought that it was more "stable". Haven't try the Catalina yet, I will stick with Mojave as it's more Mature. To Antonio: I did bought the 1TB NVMe SSD. As almost every place is selling this Samsung 970 EVO Plus version (over 220 euros, previous 970 EVO versions not available) and you mentioned that Plus version has some problems with Apple NVMe driver I took the risk and bought something else. After reading many tests and reviews I bought A-data XPG SX8200 Pro with 149 euros. +22 euros for PCIe NVMe adapter with heatsink. It's specs are pretty good and is a good competitor for Samsung with 5 years warrant. I have almost the same speed results as you with your Samsung. Reading gives 2800 and writing 2500. It's Ok for me, at least it beats the SATA SSD with 550/520. Interesting was that I tried it first with windows 10. There it gave almost the maximums related the A-data specs. 3500/3000. So it's not the HP Zxx hardware problem, it related to Apple's own driver. BR -Ragimund
  2. Hi Bilbo and Antonio, and Thanks for your confirm Finally the Noob has reached the finishing line IF you say it's Ok, then it's Ok - I don't care so much what the HWMon says anymore. Finally I can drive my "Ferrari" with all gears available, not just the 1st gear Single core results may not be radical, but multi core results beat the Mac Pro (Late 2019) 12 core with 3.3Ghz, and that enough for me and I paid 500e for this Z820 (end of leasing, emptied & recycled) + 200e for RX 580 OC 8GB. Total 700e Mac Pro costs a hell of more... 22e for that M.2 PCIe adapter and mayby 130-140e for that 1TB NVME SSD from January discount selling ? Not bad at all... Now it's time for Video & Photo editing SW to be installed, more later when that 1TB NVMe SSD is installed... This has been quite interesting & learning with Hackintosh - but my first one is done. Probably newer i9-9xxx with Z390 motherboard would have been easier for starter, but these business class HP Zxx desktops are nuclear bomb resistant and offer a lot to expand. Now it's also confirmed that a Noob can with this HS Guide install a Mojave to HP Zxx !! Thank's for Support !! Maybe Catalina one day, when it's more mature sw...
  3. Here is also my NEW generated SSDT.aml from EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched SSDT.aml
  4. Hhmmmm..... Don't frighten Noob again about possible failure Again ! Well, I installed that HWMon and extracted those sensor kexts, set it to start on Login and Restarted Hackintosh. When doing nothing, I can see Freqs like 1.19Ghz. Doing "something" get them to raise to 2,39Ghz, and when running Geekbench 4 for example I can see that some cores get freqs like 3,1Ghz. Multiplies change between x12.0 ... x32.0. But I can see only Cores 1 - 8, Multipliers xYY and Frequencies x.xx Ghz -==> NOT for Cores 1 -12 ? or 1-24 ? (2 x 12 Core) ?? SHOULD there be more ? Temps I can see CPU Core 1 - 9, CPU Core A, CPU Package, CPU 2 Package, CPU 3 Package, CPU 4 Package, CPU Core F. ?? Didn't use anything special ssd - don't understand what you mean? And thanks for reminding me, have to read the guide to end - meaning Appendix not read. I was too happy to get PM working... or is it actually now working Ok or have lost some Cores ? Have to read that Appendix, and perhaps ask help once more ? Here is my F4 Extracted SSDT-1-CpuDef.aml file, IF it tells you more than me ? SSDT-1-CpuDef.aml

  6. Antonio, Bilbo, MaLdOn, anyone... I just can't get my PM working - actually the last step ssdtPRGen script fails due "wrong parameters".

I'm so close but I could also be on the other side of the moon - feeling quite frustrated Can someone, please, help with my ssdtPRGen command OR even do the patching for me (if it's possible?

  7. Ok, Thanks for the Info Antonio. So back to Bilbo's original guide how to do PM on Z820. Will do on weekend and run BG4 & GB5 CPU tests also and post results here for others if interested... My NVMe SSD is ordered and in transfer (post), let's see if it reaches me before Xmas ? Happy Holidays to All ! -Ragimund
  8. Antonio, any new news related to PM ? Have you had any time for investigations... -Ragimund
  9. @Bilbo No, haven't do anything related to PM. -No NullCPU...kext -No AICPMPatching -No OSx86...kext -No ssdtPRGen Only Installed Mojave from USB, Installed Clover 5099 to Mojave SSD, Booted, Replaced EFI on Mojave SSD with "copied Z820 EFI", Replaced the "copy" VooDoo.kext (20 Threads) with my VooDoo.kext (48 Threads). Booted Ok to Mojave from SSD. Updated Mojave with 2019-01 Update (1.5GB). I do have that IntelPM...something marked in Clover (Like in that picture that Antonio posted here...) Thats the only thing... Ran those XLNC commands to show my output for you. Used your AppleIntelInfo.kext to check how PM works after basic install. My PM "patching" and ssdtPRGen ON-HOLD for a moment ! ==> Reason, Antonio messaged that Mojave somehow supports PM without patching... BUT also (Thanks to XLNC) mentioned that this XCPM (?) is not working correctly and he is investigating this... So I'm waiting the investigation results and don't do nothing before that to avoid corrupting my system again (Noob tries to patch PM ) and once again re-installing system from scratch... My Output is visible in previous last posts....
  10. Hi, Wow, those are really nice results, about 3-4x normal SATA3 SSD speeds. Your Z620 works like lightning speed So, PCIe adapter and NVMe SSD is back at my Xmas list now Just have to buy something "expensive" for my GF too so she wont notice my "gift" for Hackintosh... I will probably use USB pen drive in USB2 port and Clover there. Will wait your XCPM investigations and results... Meantime my installations on Hold so I don't do any damage, application installations can wait... And I can use my GF's Win laptop meanwhile... Thanks for NVMe SSD info
  11. Wow! That's great news Antonio.clb at least for a Noob like me. Mojave is Noob Friendly So I don't have to do anything related to PM patching now, just verify with that sensor & HWMon package that my CPU speed really vary. Will test during weekend and If looks Ok - then start installing applications. But then again, XLNC comment indicates that PM is not working if those few last commands return value 0 ? But perhaps that's in old macOS versions ? or with old Clover versions ? (I have 5099, and 5100 just released few days ago (with Fix) in Git where I downloaded mine (not from sourceforge)). It's also great news that your Z620 works also with Catalina, so investing $$$ to Z820 was not wrong (robust desktop) and there is support when when time comes for Catalina. I will stick with Mojave for now because I don't think that Catalina is not mature enough and there will be many Updates that will need Noob to do "patching" and that's not my expertise. One thing, off topic - sorry. But from your signature I noticed that you have NVMe SSD as System disk !! So does your Z620 boot from that NVMe SSD as I thought that HP Z4xx, Z6xx and Z8xx are so "old" that their BIOS doesn't support Booting from NVMe SSD. Newest Z840 maybe does support ? Or do you have some trick behind this to get it Bootable. What PCIe adapter you use for your NVMe SSD (ROM for boot support?) and to what card slot you have it installed ? Is the R/W performance any good ? Better than normal SATA SSD anyway I bet. But does it reach the Samsung official maximum or due old C602 chipset something in the middle ? I'm interested also to add NVMe SSD to System disk into my Mojave but thought that it's not supported and waist of money. Now it's Xmas time and there are some good Xmas gift offers in IT shops... Your RAID 1 with different HDU's is wise also to avoid possible FW caused errors (counters full, etc). Have happend once to me in Win side, lessons learned. Never same model/brand for RAID. Once again, Thx to all for your help !
  12. Hi All, Yes, I have NOT done the PM configuration/patching yet related to HS Part V: PM Guide. !! Just installed Mojave from USB, Installed Clover to Mojave Boot SSD, Installed Update for Safari (35MB) and Update Mojave 2019-001 (1.5GB). That's All. Nothing else. And Geekbench 5 if Updated version of Geekbench 4 test software (Win & Mac, Trial is free, no registration). Like CinebenchR20 (Free, Full version) is Updated (& better) version of CinebenchR15 that test actual Rendering power of the system, that is used in many Mac articles and Youtube reviews... I'm also a little confused as I have not done anything to PM but it seems that something is anyway working - or at least it "looks" like it, reality might bee something else. I have to install those sensors and HWMon app and see is the clock (Ghz) actually changing or not ?? Meaning does it ever go above 2,4Ghz on my system ?? Still NOT doing anything to my PM before trying that HWMon app and see results... Have to Download that Sensor & HWMon package first, is that Koslow package still the best in Mojave version ? Or do others use newer or some other version ?
  13. Great! So there is a hope for Noob in Mojave with Z820 I have now reinstalled Mojave fully from scratch and Updated it, all OK. 1:1 Diskcopy didn't work backwards as the disk are not exact the same size The Copy one boots and works Ok (old physical HDU) but doesn't copy 1:1 back to SSD - Docking station feature. Well, Lessons learned again... I'm a little nervous to start this PM "patching" again, my changes are 50/50 to success as Noob. Still thanks to Antonio.clb and his Z620 success with Mojave I feel more lucky now. *** Checked with Clover Configurator that I have that AppleIntelCPUPM marked Ok (Thanks for the picture!) So before trying to do actually anything related to PM, I did the what XLNC asked from you, just for interest - IF these say anything to someone or they can be used for comparing results with bilbo's output (?) kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu 36 0 0xffffff7f83300000 0x29000 0x29000 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (220.0.0) E3B88211-CDA7-3E54-967A-8A8F99DC15DB <8 7 6 5 3 1> 49 0 0xffffff7f8338e000 0x3000 0x3000 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient (220.0.0) 13A20B03-186C-3E83-9431-4E8780651164 <8 7 6 5 3 1> kextstat|grep -y x86plat 104 1 0xffffff7f827ab000 0x19000 0x19000 com.apple.driver.X86PlatformPlugin (1.0.0) CF046E0E-4687-3674-98D0-5A8BCEE169F4 <103 70 23 14 12 8 7 6 5 3 1> 148 1 0xffffff7f827c4000 0x7000 0x7000 com.apple.driver.X86PlatformShim (1.0.0) EB52AEA3-66F9-350B-AFAD-43E8428454EA <104 103 14 8 5 3> sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count 0 sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.mode 0 And then I used your AppleIntelInfo.kext (from HS Stuff folder) as it worked already Ok before. -Gave permissions to it -sudo kextload AppleIntelInfo.kext Run Geekbench 5 (Trial) CPU Benchmark test, got following results.

OR not Base freq is 2,4Ghz and Turbo is 3,2Ghz for my E5-2695 v2 I put my PM patching now "On Hold" to see responses for this post before I try once again to get my PM working... And thanks to all for your help! Ragimund
  14. Thx Bilbo, Don't do extra work there. I took a 1:1 disk copy from my SSD in Docking station "just in case" as I thought that with Noobs luck I will do still something wrong. I will make a new Mojave in no time in Docking station again from my "backup". About 20-25min. So that was one mistake that I made at least, copied that kext directly with Finder. I have to download that "kext utility" and find out how to use it... And the second is that I probably understood wrong that "aicpm clover on" thing that you mention. So it's not a thing that you can cross mark "tickle" on/off in ACPI page on Clover. It's actually a KERNEL page patch - that I think I don't have at all. As I sais, I'm a Noob - I managed to get by my own to Install Mojave and Boot from SSD but plenty of staff was not working and needed "patching" and that's not my expertises. But in this same discussion topic was also another HP Z820 owner and he gave his EFI USB & EFI HDU files (patched). But he had different CPU (less cores (10) and probably only 1 CPU, as I have 12 and 2 CPU's). Everything else seems to work Ok (not sure yet about USB3.0 speed). Only thing is that NO CPU PM and on base stock speed 2,4Ghz. The helper had the same issue, no working PM and base speed (his was 2,8Ghz) So, I will try again... It's the only way to learn. My GF is asking "Why you want Apple as computer was working Ok in Windows? and you have now tried over 3 weeks already and it doesn't work" Well, dear...
  15. Hi All, Followed you HS Guide Part V: Power Management, and got my system messed. Doesn't boot any more Rebooted, Clover Menu, Boot from Mojave_SSD Few lines in Verbose list and then error... OsxAptioFix3Drv: Error ExitBootServices() 2nd Try = Status: Invalid Parameter Tries 3 times with 10sec delay, every time same error msg and then system Frozen. I documented everything I did into text file and it's of course inside the non booting system, writing this from my girlfriends Win laptop I'm trying to tell again what I did... -Booted System -Removed the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext away from EFI/Clover/kext/Other -Marked in Clover that ACPI "Type..." something active in right bottom corner (don't remember actual name anymore) and saved config.plist again. 25. -Skipped, I know I run base speed 26. -Used your AppleIntelInfo.kext - worked before already. Rights given OK. 27. -Skipped 28. -Backed Up AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from /S/L/E and also copied it to Desktop. -Patched with AICPMPatch OK. No Deltas in second check. -Downloaded and copied Legacyx86PlattformPlugin.kext to /S/L/E. NOT in EFI/Clover... -Ignored steps 4 & 5 from Guide "Sandy Bridge-E & Ivy Bridge-E Power management 10.13 (Appstore release)" like you advised. -"Rebuild permissions and cache"!! Have no idea how to do, no commands in your guide. So I used Google "Rebuild permissions and cache in Mojave" and found from first result (Travelertechie.com) following commands : Repair permissions in /S/L/E (System/Library/Extensions) and /L/E (Library/Extensions) folders Type each of the following commands (separately) in Terminal: sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E* sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E* Rebuild Kext Cache Type the following command in the Terminal: sudo kextcache -i / Restart your computer for the repairs to take effect. Rebooted like in your Guide before step 29. But now I got this error and doesn't boot anymore... How to fix ? What did I understood wrong this time ?
