    Shutdown calls Reboot

    It's been so long since I ran into this that I forgot about the MacPro 6,1 SMBios and the AppleGraphicsDevicePoicy issue. I changed the one instance of GFX0 to GFX1 in the DSDT you sent me and it got me to the desktop. Unfortunately once I got there I had no USB, either on the machine or on the FL1100 USB card I have installed. So therefore no keyboard or mouse either. I booted back into my original config (no DSDT) and extracted it once I reached the desktop with MaciASL and used File Merge to compare the two files. I need to spend some further time comparing the two. I saw at a quick glance a bunch of USB edits you had made. I also saw a bunch of edits in CRS1 and CRS2. I have no idea what those are for. Can you give me some insight on that? I'll do some more digging on the USB issue and report back. Thanks.

    Thanks very much Mald0n, unfortunately it booted me to a black screen so I can't test. I had a quick look through your DSDT, I didn't see anything that I thought would prevent the system from seeing the Nvidia GTX650. I'm using the native mac drivers for that. Thoughts on what I should look for? By the way, there are so many Aptio fixes, what's the advantage to the AptioMemoryFix.efi? I also saw that you updated the "Firmware Features" and removed the CPU info from the Clover config.plist. We're those something that's been updated that I've missed? Appreciate the help.

    Shutdown calls Reboot

    Here you go. By the way, I just had a KP on boot again. I'm starting to think this may have something to do with Win 10. I was just in Win 10, rebooted and tried to load High Sierra from Clover and had the KP. The CMOS reset fixed it again. I'll keep an eye on that. The two issues may be unrelated. Just as a quick explanation (this may be evident in the attached files) I've disabled the on board USB 3 chips (FL1009) they worked with a Clover kext patch, but were unreliable with external audio hardware. I have a FL1100 card in the box I'm using instead. Also, as I expect you saw from the original dump I'm not using a patched DSDT, just a couple SSDT's (one for the 3930k and one from RamapgeDev.) origin.zip

    MaLd0n to the rescue! Unfortunately I'm getting this error when I try to upload the zip archive, "There was a problem processing the uploaded file. -200" You can grab it from my One Drive folder instead; https://1drv.ms/u/s!AqFQPTxRc9VpmlNV2SlGa5raIBz5 Thanks
  5. I have a Gigabyte X-79-UD5 with a 3930K that's been a solid workhorse for the past few years. Lately I've started having some odd glitches with startups and shutdowns that had me suspecting the boot loader (Clover, currently using 4049). I tried earlier versions with the same result. The biggest issue is that when I call shutdown the machine restarts. I realize there are shutdown fixes, I've never needed one with this rig. I am booting in verbose mode, at shutdown I am seeing this message as part of the shutdown procedure; com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.xpc.launchd.domain.system) <Notice>: Will be calling reboot(2) with flags: 0x0 Then the usual unmounts, cpu halted, a few seconds of silence then the machine restarts. Curiously this happens with a High Sierra and a separate El Capitan install on the same machine (separate Clover installs in the EFI on each of those separate drives.) What's more curious and has me starting to wonder what the common factor is, is that I've started getting occasional Panics at boot. Doing a CMOS reset fixes this 100% of the time. Windows runs fine while this is happening (Windows 10 and 7, again on separate drives, though still loading with Clover) At one point I opened up the Bios screen at boot and saw Cyrillic (Russian) text in one of the fields, the reset fixed that. Nothing has changed with the hardware config (except for perhaps age) or the EFI folder (except for some clover updates.) I thought perhaps something with the boot loader and some changes to how NVRam is handled may have been causing the problem, but rolling back didn't resolve it (NVRam has been no problem on this machine since it was supported by Clover a few years back) Any suggestions?
  6. The new site is great, though I too have had the "loading" problem when navigating the site I'm sure it will get sorted out. What's driving me nuts is the video window that follows me around on every page, it's the "Insanely Annoying" new feature. I understand that add revenue drives this site, but to me that's over the top. What's it going to take to get rid of that? (In fact I can't even see what I just typed, it's behind the add.)

    MSI Laptop SteelSeries Light Controller

    Dude, I just about crapped when the lights turned on under my keyboard. I was figuring that this would likely be the one thing I would really have trouble getting to work on my GT72s 6QF (4k beast.) You put a big smile on my face. Thank you so much!
  8. I've been running a Gigabyte X79-UD5 with a MacPro 6,1 smbios for quite a while now. The machine is very stable. Everything works fine, USB2 and USB3 (FL1009) sound etc., or at least that's what I thought. Recently I plugged a midi keyboard into the USB3 port. It powers up and shows up in the Audio Midi Setup app, but no midi is transferred to Logic X. Plugging it into a USB2 port it does work, but the midi is delayed transferring to the program. It's not an audio latency problem (I'm using 128 samples, it will run comfortably at 64) but is a problem of the midi events (key presses) actually showing up late. The keyboard is class compliant (M-Audio) so it should work fine. I have the same issue with other midi devices on this machine as well. I've built a lot of hacks for music production, this is the first time I've encountered this. These devices (keyboard, etc.) work without issue on other builds. I've tried this with Sierra and High Sierra on the same machine with the same results. I've also tried a few different ways of injecting the ports (kexts, SSDT injection, clover) always the same result. Can anyone offer any advice on this one?
  9. WeBeRiO, thanks for sharing! For whatever reason my Driver Manager still says nothing is available.

    Farewell Pike

    I'm very sorry to hear about this. It's a loss that will be felt by all of us.

    Disabling Night Shift

    Update: I've been following this on the Apple forums, it seems that 10.13.1 still has the same problem. I personally haven't tried it yet, but that's the report from there. Too bad we can't find a fix. I think it would be hilarious if the Hackintosh community was able to find a fix for Apple's problems.
  12. I realize that much of the efforts on this site have been to find ways to enable Night Shift, I'm trying to do the opposite. I'm running a nVidia 650Ti on an x79 gigabyte board with a MacPro 6,1 smbios; aside from Night Shift the system runs great. The reason is that Night Shift (or something related to it) has broken colour management since 10.12.4 Examples of that and discussions about that can be found here, http://www.eizogloba...0124/index.html here on the Apple forums https://discussions....tart=0&tstart=0 and a bunch of other places. I have a $3k Eizo monitor that I can no longer calibrate properly to do photo and video editing. I've currently returned to El Capitan to work around this. I've tried disabling Night Shift using a backwards version of Pike's method https://pikeralpha.w...017/01/30/4398/ by putting in bogus model versions. It does disable Night Shift, but unfortunately the problem with colour calibration still exists. It's that and the fact that many "content creators" are still complaining about this after 4 software revisions that makes me think they've changed something more fundamental in the video or colour management code and that perhaps this is not a simple fix. Using the NVidia web drivers doesn't help either. I expect that at some point Apple will address this, but till then I thought I'd put this out there in case someone smarter than me has a way to kick this "feature" to the curb.
  13. Does anyone know where I could lay my hands on a copy of the 10.12.3 installer? I've been searching in vain to find this. I'm one of the users affected by the bug in Night Shift that messes with colours on external monitors, a prime example of that can be found here, http://www.eizoglobal.com/support/compatibility/software/cn6-sierra10124/index.html and here https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7908071?start=0&tstart=0 and a bunch of other places. I have a $3k Eizo monitor that I can no longer calibrate properly to do photo and video editing. As Sierra 10.12.3 was the last version that did not have this it's the one I'm looking for. I do have an El Cap installer saved, I'll go back to that if I have to. I've tried disabling Night Shift using a backwards version of Pike's method https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/2017/01/30/4398/ by putting in bogus model versions. It does disable Night Shift, but unfortunately the problem with colour calibration still exists. My last backup is of 10.12.4, so that doesn't help me either.

    Clover General discussion

    Hi Guys; I'm finding that the combination of Clover 4220 and High Sierra is not allowing kext patches to AICPUPM. Patching of other kexts seems to be working. I've manually applied the patches directly to AICPUPM and it's working, so I know the patches themselves (Stinga11's Sandy Bridge patches for PM) are good. Search doesn't appear to be working right now, so I'm sorry if this has been mentioned elsewhere.
  15. Arkanis you are absolutely right. I applied the patches directly and everything is fine. I'll chock this up as a Clover bug and create a post about it over there. Thanks.
