    macOS Mojave 10.14.6 is Out

    Yigpig, you might be better severed by asking this in the post install section, but I too have been having a bunch of problems (KPs at boot, 60% of the time) after the supplemental update. Still looking into that. I still don't need WEG after the 10.14.6 supplemental update with my RX580 (though I did need it with 10.14.5.) What SMBios are you using? I'm using MacPro 6,1 and there was an issue with AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy and a black screen. Changing GFX0 to GFX1 in your DSDT or SSDT (whatever you're using) was a perfect solution for my rig.
  2. KGP, thanks for the great and detailed guide ! It's made the process of getting Asus x299 Prime Deluxe rig up and running quickly and painlessly. I am having an issue getting your SSDTs to load though. I've recompiled them, checked the code, all seems fine. Example is my Sata controller still reads "Generic AHCI Controller" in system report. Wondering if you could offer a clue as to where to look? I do have your ACPI edits enabled in my Clover config.plist.

    Mojave : Nvidia web driver petition

    This is being discussed in the Apple community forums as well. Thanks for the petition link. I posted it over there as well.

    macOS Mojave 10.14.1 is out

    Does anyone know of a way to download the full 10.14.1 installer from the new "crippled" App Store short of simply plugging in my High Sierra backup and going to the real App Store? Trying to download the full installer on Mojave just directs me to an update. I need a clean install to try to sort out some issues with Parallels (ironic I know, running on a PC ) Edit: Ignore this post, I eventually got the option to download the installer as SavageAUS writes below instead of the update and or the 20mb installer nub. Don't know why it wasn't an option on the first few tries, but it eventually coughed up the correct download.
  5. I recently purchased and installed one of these, https://www.inateck.com/uk/inateck-ktu3fr-5o2i-usb-3-0-pci-express-card.html I'm using it on my Gigabyte X79-UD5 and turned off the eternal FL1009 USB3, which when the ID was patched worked fine for storage devices, but was finicky on multimedia devices. The chips are natively supported and it works great. My problem is that it causes a restart after shutdown. I know it's this, if I pull the card out the problem goes away. I'm thinking I can likely fix it with a SSDT, but I'm unclear on exactly what info I should be inserting regarding power to fix the issue. I can find and map the ports with IORegistry Explorer. Could someone please offer some advice on that?

    A plist patch that's not working in Mojave

    Kext is loading for sure. I recently edited the plist directly (External > Internal) and repaired permissions to get rid of the orange icons, it worked. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps Mojave is handling kexts in the Library/Extensions folder differently from S/L/E. As I said, my plist patch for FL1009 USB 3 ID is working, so Clover is doing it's thing, just not for this kext.

    A plist patch that's not working in Mojave

    Thanks, but no joy after the kextcache rebuild, still have the orange icons.

    A plist patch that's not working in Mojave

    Thanks for the quick response Hervé. Syntax in the info.plist seems the same for both versions. How do I check if the kext is cached?
  9. I have an Areca 1882 raid card in my rig. It's natively supported under OSX by the /Library/Extensions/ArcMSR.kext. Under High Sierra I used a plist patch to change <key>Physical Interconnect Location</key> <string>External</string> to <key>Physical Interconnect Location</key> <string>Internal</string> Not a big deal, it simply changes all the drive icons from orange to silver (all the drives are not removable.) Anyway, worked great under High Sierra and prior versions, but no longer under Mojave. The patch I'm using is <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Areca Raid Internal Icon Patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> PHN0cmluZz5FeHRlcm5hbDwvc3RyaW5nPg== </data> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <true/> <key>Name</key> <string>com.Areca.ArcMSR</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> PHN0cmluZz5JbnRlcm5hbDwvc3RyaW5nPg== </data> </dict> My plist patch for the Fresco USB 3 ID works, so I know the issue isn't Clover. The ArcMSR.kext was updated in Mojave, but the basic info seems the same. Can anyone offer advice on what's wrong? I was wondering if perhaps Mojave is handling third party extension from /Library/Extensions differently than earlier versions.

    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.

    Shutdown calls Reboot

    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

    Shutdown calls Reboot

    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
  14. 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?
  15. 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.)
