    Apparently this may happen on a real Mac, maybe this can help you at this stage > https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7288443

    how do you resolve the +++++++++++ Stall

    I didn't updated Clover for a while and, after update, I had the same issue... Make sure to use AptioMemoryFix-64.efi and remove slide=0 bootarg... This fixed the issue, at least for me...

    S.M.A.R.T. Status

    Hello, guys! I just bought a new SSD, a Kingston SA400S37240G and it's (apparently) working as expected... As I was making "clean" installations of all OSs I use and, macOS were the only installed OS when I plugged it, the fact that HWMonitor showed me a warning about its SMART status caught my attention but, as I just started to use VirtualSMC and, I thought that it may be some other issue... But, after finish, I noticed some ACPI errors at Linux boot... Then, I looked back to macOS and surprisingly, I found a less detailed trace of the same error... [EDIT] Windows has issues too... [EDIT] They are related to "Method (_GTF, 0, NotSerialized)" and, looking at ACPI specs, apparently it's properly applied at the SSDT... > SSDT1.dsl.zip My question is, where I have an issue? SMART information isn't clear at Linux, Windows or macOS... At CrystalDiskInfo I have the more "friendly" info, and also, it shows SATA ACS-3 Revision 4 standard, my old SSD, from where I can get detailed SMART information, is from Revision 3... Sensors are crazy at Linux too... So, I bought a damaged SSD or this is only a malformed information due to a lack of firmware capabilities by using a relative new hardware into an old one, that doesn't fit the new ACPI specs and, because of this, its data cannot be collected? Or this is only a OEM feature, meaning that this hardware was made in some way that the data really can't be read? Thanks!
  6. I created this script some time ago, but unfortunately, I couldn't finish it due to particular issues and time... It mounts some kinds of filesystems, and also, can create/change fstab... If someone wants, feel free to improve it... > https://bitbucket.org/kyndder/imounter

    If you create a Installer using BaseSystem method, you'll be able to mount any partition of an external or internal drive, as you'll have R/W filesystem, but, if you are using this method, why not place needed kexts at /S/L/E or /L/E?

    Looking at your signature, you have 2x1 TB SSD and 2x3 TB HDD... You have OS X installed at a FusionDrive or a RAID set? If yes, there's no way to make a SafeBoot or to boot without kext caches... Any kind of Core Storage devices doesn't exists at the bootloader level, only at OS level, and because of this, there's no device to read from...

    Oh! Nice to hear this! There are some users wanting to know more about Secure Boot, that was implemented by apianti, but wasn't finished... The whole "known" research was at ProjectOSX... The same for OsxAptioFixDrv, its variants... This, not taking in count many other "great" stuff like Pene's PatchVBios findings... It would be a great thing have it again at a known place! No, I don't want nothing specific for now... Thank you!

    I think you may be right about the hibernation mode you are using (7 bit 111), but, if i'm not wrong (and probably I am, as I'm not even close to a low level programmer ), using bit 2 will enable encryption right? The slide=0 was a workaround made to force boot.efi to be loaded at a specific memory block, and it's needed since Mountain Lion... Nowadays, it's automatically set (slide=0), without the need of the user manually add it... dmazar gave us some formulas and complete instructions on what are the best memory regions to use, and on how to use this regions by setting its slide value at Clover, obviously, different than 0... It was a HUGE amount of information, that unfortunately was lost, and maybe, only dmazar will have a documentation...

    All documentation regarding Hibernation was at ProjectOSX, that unfortunately is down... Proper hibernation depends on many things, CPUPM, GPUPM, ACPI Table, HDD/SDD, including bootloader capability to resume it... And Clover has this capability... But in some cases, there are some tricks that must be used with Clover, like proper slide value, and at OS X, like proper hibernatemode to make it work... The proper slide value apparently (for the most of users) was fixed by using OsxAptioFixDrv2, but you still need some things... For example, you'll never have proper sleep using OsxAptioFixDrv2+slide=0+hibernatemode=0, but maybe using OsxAptioFixDrv2+slide=0+hibernatemode=3... If i'm not wrong, the first successful report from dmazar was using hibernatemode=25 on a regular HDD, but the same settings using a SSD not worked... Let's hope that some of this information can be recovered, and that ProjectOSX can be back again!

    Thanks to Clover's Devs we have the ability to use KextsToPatch for AICPUPM, AHDA and IOAHCIBS...

    OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

    Run... sudo rm -rf /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot and try again...

    Should've got a Mac 3.1 Need Yosemite help!

    Do you guys looked at "all" files linked to the post that I've sent the link above? Specifically THIS? The guy who created that method are using "workarounds" commonly used at Hackintoshes. like modified boot.efi, PlatformSupport.plist, InstallableMachines.plist, OSInstall.mpkg, SMBIOSEFI.kext and even VoodooHDA.kext... The thing is, it will work for Yosemite?
