    Thanks for pointing me to your EFI! Almost same as I have. Tried to use your whole EFI (only had to add NVMe support) and I was able to pass the ******* screen but then on load, it stucks on "HID: Legacy shim 2" and then something like kernel panic on "Still waiting for root device". I am sure that this "progress" was caused by the older version of Clover because with the newer version I am not able to pass the ***** screen by anyway. My clover version is now Clover_v2.4k_r4114 and for example, Clover_v2.4k_r4220 is already bad for me. It is weird, don't know how to debug it or which direction I should go. I can't even update to newer version of macOS (10.13 17A365+) because it requires newer clover I think because otherwise, it has the "Still waiting for root device" issue. Added also my EFI for example on macOS 10.13 17A365 and clover 4114 it works perfectly and it is very stable. EFI.zip

    Weird, I tried to boot with the optiofix2 and slide=128 again (lowest possible slide which I calculated before is 129 for me ) and the same result as every time - stuck on screen with line of stars *********************************************************** But I can notice that after +-2 seconds that my RGB keyboard is being off.

    Wonder what else I can try because the only way to boot my system now is AptioFix2000.efi (stable for me, but does not work with newer clovers). With AptioMemoryFix from this thread I have 128/256 valid slides but only with latest RC versions (it shows 256/0 slides before RC12). I tried aptiofix2/3, not possible to boot... also tried to calculate the slide= parameter but it is not possible for my board obivously because all available slots are too wide. Any ideas? Thanks! or if we can improve the AptioMemoryFix I can test if needed. --- board: X99 Deluxe II CPU: 5820K RAM: 32GB G.skill Trident Z BIOS 4G decode enabled (and it really helped with stability) etc. this should be fine
  4. enable 4G encode in BIOS and download OsxAptioFix2000
  5. Hello, I hope you’re having a great weekend! I have problem probably with DSDT/SSDT. I already spent some time on solving it and after that I decided to start this topic... The problem is that I still have "There was an error while gathering PCI device information." in PCI section: I applied several fixes to my DSDT which I found here on the forum (lot of them coming from nmano) and I correct them with my device ids etc from IO reg. Those patches already did something I think, because for example audio is now recognised in Audio section. I will be happy for any help... I saw those files are neceserry in those cases so I attached couple of files: 1) origin zip attached 2) tnf ioreg attched 3) My motherboard is Asus X99 Deluxe II with latest bios 1701 https://www.asus.com/de/Motherboards/X99-DELUXE-II/ 4) GPU nVidia 1080 Ti 5) HDEF layout id <00 00 00 00> (I don't have care too much about internal audio card because I have external audio card using Fireware) 6) Patches I applied (+ modified DSDT) 7) Clover config Thanks in advance for your help and patience! filesForDSDT.zip
  6. One and last thing what you have to do for working iMess/iCloud is fill ROM and MLB in RT Variables (Clover configurator). That is everything you need to fill in your config for working iMessage/iCloud. Take them from real mac and you will never have a problem with it.

    Haswell-E Xeon XCPM Sierra issues

    There are some assumptions to run system with XCPM mode. nullcpumanagement have to be unloaded (run this in terminal and if it returning blank list you are good - kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu) you have to have freq vectors loaded - you can use piker alpha tool for load these vectors x86platform kext have to be also loaded about this mac will show xenon E5 with right cpu type in clover config qpi in clover config have to be set to 100 (maybe idk the right number for your procesor - search how to calculate this - piker alpha explained this on his blog as well) keep VoodooTSCSync.kext with right core number I am out of my computer right now, but you can search on forum and you will get your answers.
  8. I can confirm - Clover 3994 has serious bug. I returned to older version of Clover from 3994 and now everything is just fine again on 10.12.3 - but on boot system writing XCPM: registered instead of IOPPF: XCPM mode also I have problems to load freq vectors again... damnt on 10.12.2 was everything awesome... 5820K. If someone has still 10.12.2 installation file I will be very happy if someone can post link to download because I can´t find any source on web.
  9. I can confirm this. 4G solved all my problems with allocation. Using X99 Deluxe II with 5820K. Thank you for advice this!
  10. Yes, use included BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext It was only illusion :/ sorry. I will update guide today.

    nv_disable=1 not longer working with 10.12.1

    I have 750 Ti (Maxwell) and I always got same state as you here when I used MacPro SMBIOS... with iMac14,1-2 everything is good...

    macOS 10.12.1 is out!

    Yes, but yesterday It was not available. It was quick!
  13. Toooorch

    macOS 10.12.1 is out!

    Successfully installed. I have had to change only NVDAStartupWeb.kext - download it in attachements - for lazy people NVDAStartupWeb.kext.zip
  14. Hello, I have tried many things in my journey to get my rig working completely and I think it will be useful for someone and maybe we will discover some new technics to get working something next. My rig: Asus X99 DELUXE II Seasonic 850W 80Plus Gold Intel i7 5820K OC Samsung EVO 850 250GB nVidia 750Ti - 4GB = real pain in the ass in this rig and it is only temporary solution because I also tried already RX480 but everyone already knows problems of these RX cards/Clover Some facts about the motherboard and also proper kext which can enable this piece of the motherboard. Storage: 8 SATA 6Gb/s ports, 1 x SATA Express port all controlled by Intel C610/X99 Series Chipset (+ some U.2 port/M.2 options for i7) SSD Trim enabled by Trim Enabler Network: Intel I218V = Working flawlessly with IntelMausiEthernet.kext Intel I211-AT = Some troubles but It works with AppleIGB.kext / AppleIntelE1000e.kext ASUS Wi-Fi - Up to 1300Mbps transfer speed - dual band frequency 2.4/5 GHz = It works OOB Asus Bluetooth 4.0 = It works perfectly with BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext Audio: Realtek® ALC1150 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC featuring Crystal Sound 3 = It works perfectly after VoodooHDA 2.8.8 is installed and then 2.8.9 kext is applied (install VoodooHDA and then after restart install 2.8.9). I don't know why, but if you try to install imminently only 2.8.9 kext it will have horrible quality. USB: 4 x USB 3.0/2.0 port(s) + ASMEDIA HUB - Works with kext patch (up to 5Gb/s) and X99 Injector X99_Injector_USB_3.kext 6 x USB 2.0/1.1 port(s) (4 at back panel, ) - Nothing to say - OOB 4 x USB 3.1 port(s) - I don't have now any proper hardware (I will get it later) for test it, but I think it will need also a kext patch to get full speed. <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>USB 3.0 Speed</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> g710////EA== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> g710////Gw== </data> </dict> BIOS: I recommend installing latest BIOS 1401 because this BIOS fixed some weird things what I experienced on older versions... BIOS Settings: Safe Mode: Other OS = mandatory for Clover CMS: Disabled = mandatory for Clover / you will have different behavior when you will use "auto". So it is better to complete disable it (for NVMe it is neccessary to have this in "auto" and have some patches in os). Intel USB 3.0 XHCI Mode Smart Auto XHCI-Hand-off = Enabled EHCI-Hand-off = Enabled These settings depend on the type of installation but everything enabled is okay. Extensions card: ThunderboltEX3 = Other BIOS settings: USB 3.0 charging = Enabled XMP Overclock iMessage/iCloud Fix: iMessageDebug from real mac = base64 ROM and MLB number in clover config = never install with these numbers or check "no connection" in first setup of your machine. XCPM I have fully working XCPM on my Haswell-E 5820K. First add some kernel patches to the clover config.plist <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Haswell-E CPUID Patch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> g8Dp </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.12</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> g8Dm </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>XCPM Core Scope MSRS © Pike R.

Boot-args and EFI files: Always latest clover in EFI partition main highlights = npci=0x2000 SMBIOS: MacPro6,1 You have to use Test2.efi for fix allocation problems Every mentioned kext in /kexts/10.12 What is also nice to have: I have had problems with my graphics (it working well with nVidia WEB drivers, but it causes also weird restarts before the driver installed and you will have some multiple boots before the driver is installed. Also, I can't boot (strong screen glitches) and I have to use now iMac14,2 SMBIOS but when nVidia driver is applied it is possible to change SMBIOS to MacPro6,1 with these additional boot args and some text patches to GPolicy (Brummler GDP patch). agdp=Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61 I will update this thread with new discoveries for my rig cheers, feedback is appreciated More updated github repo https://github.com/Toooorch/X99-Deluxe-II x99 Deluxe II.zip
