    [Help] Core i7-720QM Power Management & Speedstep

    Hi Griftopia, It is a Great news, that you got Power Management in your build ! Could you please send us your complete Clover folder (Compressed) , so we can take a look. Thanks a lot for your help.
  3. Since macOS 10.10+ I am getting Errors that my CPU does not support Virtualization (Although it is enabled in Bios), while using Virtualization Applications Like VMware Fusion & Docker After some Research I found that most of those apps since macOS 10.10+ depend on "Apple Hypervisor Framework", and this Framework needs VT-x, EPT, and Unrestricted Mode (VMX Unrestricted mode) Supported Hardware Generally, machines with an Intel VT-x feature set that includes Extended Page Tables (EPT) and Unrestricted Mode are supported. You can determine the availability of Hypervisor APIs on a particular machine at runtime with the sysctl(8) command, passing kern.hv_support as an argument. I checked my CPU documentation and found that my CPU Support all these features - Intel-Core-i7-720QM (https://ark.intel.com/products/43122/Intel-Core-i7-720QM-Processor-6M-Cache-1_60-GHz) sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features machdep.cpu.features: FPU VME DE PSE TSC MSR PAE MCE CX8 APIC SEP MTRR PGE MCA CMOV PAT PSE36 CLFSH DS ACPI MMX FXSR SSE SSE2 SS HTT TM PBE SSE3 DTES64 MON DSCPL VMX SMX EST TM2 SSSE3 CX16 TPR PDCM SSE4.1 SSE4.2 POPCNT but although all of that when I run this command , I got that my CPU is not supported ! sysctl kern.hv_support kern.hv_support: 0 Errors from Applications : VMware Fusion: This host does not support virtualizing real mode. The Intel "VMX Unrestricted Guest" feature is necessary to run this virtual machine on an Intel processor. Module 'CPUIDEarly' power on failed. Failed to start the virtual machine. Docker: Fatal Error Incompatible CPU detected. Docker requires a processor with virtualization capabilities. To learn more about this issue see: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/troubleshoot My Question is : 1) Is this issue Hackintosh specific, Related to Clover, DSDT, SSDT ? 2) Anyone getting "kern.hv_support: 1" , when running "sysctl kern.hv_support" on Hackintosh ?
  4. Hello macq As you said it seems like a Graphics issue backup and then Remove all "NV kexts" including NVDAGF100Hal.Kext NVDAGK100Hal.Kext NVDAGF50Hal.Kext NVDAResman.Kext NVDAStartup.Kext then install working Yosemite Kexts Clean cache and restart Good Luck !
  5. Hello blazinsmokey, i don't know what DSDT Methods do you mean Scope (_PR) ? , i can't find the SSDT file did you attach it ? also Could you check this : https://github.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/tree/Beta download the tool and then put this file User Defined.cfg.zip in "/Users/user/Library/ssdtPRGen/Data/" then run in terminal: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -p i7-720QM -c 0 -d 3 and report back your Results Thanks

    Modify Clover boot loader meny

    use "Clover Configurator" then GUI section then "Hide Volumes" Good Luck
  7. yeah that's very sad , we Need to find a way ! the key people to a solution is "slice" and "piker-Alpha " those are the two guys who can help ! i Tried to ask "piker-Alpha" for adding "Clarksfield (i7-720QM & i7-740QM)" Support here to his ssdtPRGen.sh Script i Tried to ask Slice for adding support in clover directly, you can find the conversation here but nothing yet i Created a topic for the same purpose: [Help] Core i7-720QM Power Management & Speedstep so for anyone interested try to ask them too, to make them feel that there is a lot of people who need it ! @Peter_sm, do you know which version of cham where Speed Step works ! what i only know now that sometimes when my mac go to sleep and wake, speed step work
  8. Hi everyone, hope that everything goes well with your hackbooks For anyone having issues with Sound: use this Kexts, i am using it and it works Great , if any bugs found just Report to update it (i am very lazy to do so ) Check this link, and use the latest Clover Configuration it's not a very easy fix and need some effort ! if you like the post, like it !

DarwinDumper: DarwinDumper_2.9.6_Clover_X64_2916_Yos_Amer_2014-09-30_00-27-33_MacBookAir5,2.zip Config.plist: config.plist.zip I would greatly appreciate any help

    I Applied your changes and Removed SSDT.aml file now the Multiplier became always "7" or 931MHZ which is the min Frequency. but when i use the SSDT it always use the highest Multiplier (without Turbo Boost) "12" or 1.2GHZ (Static) no change in Frequency and no Turbo boost ! Edited config.plist : config.plist.zip using SSDT : without SSDT (Clover only):
