    Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 Bios F5e

    There's a F10 BIOS now, but I wouldn't recommend updating to it. It seems to mess up boot/display for everything so I downgraded back to F7.

    An update to this, I haven't been able to get the HDMI 2.0 output working yet with my new Pixio PX277h monitor and the Sapphire RX 580 PULSE GPU. Some findings; - Having the latest Lilu+WhateverGreen doesn't make any difference, when it *should*. - Using the -cdfon boot-arg (and not using it for testing) for all of the tests. - Also tried removing/disabling WhateverGreen and manually using a framebuffer (Orinoco in this case). - In addition to using the Orinoco framebuffer I tried using RadeonDeinit = true, InjectATI = true and a kext patch for AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy that disables the board-id check that the 18,3 SMBIOS seems to do (which WhateverGreen, as far as I know, should do too). - DisplayPort and the HDMI 1.4 port work fine but the HDMI 1.4 port naturally doesn't give me 144hz under macOS (only 60hz). - The HDMI 2.0 port does work if I unplug it and replug it. Seems a bit cumbersome though. - I've extracted the EDID from Windows via the Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) app on Windows. Doesn't seem to make a difference. I've matched the EDID hex to what's seen under Linux as well, and it matches. Should I report this to the WhateverGreen thread? P.S. Another oddity that's semi-related I've noticed is, I can't get 144hz working under Linux (using Mesa+amdgpu) with DisplayPort either (and adding 144hz via xrandr results in a failure). Though I suspect this might be a Mesa/amdgpu bug, I'll have to look into that one at another date.

    Greetings @MaLd0n I received a new monitor yesterday (a Pixio PX277h FreeSync 2 monitor) and while it works fine with DisplayPort, HDMI is another story. What happens is after the first stage of the boot, the monitor will go into sleep (and lose the signal). However if I unplug and replug the HDMI cable, it works fine then. Of course, I've already tried updating by building the latest Git commit of Lilu+WhateverGreen but that didn't work. I also tried using the -cdfon boot-arg and that didn't work either. CSM is turned off in the UEFI BIOS (and enabling CSM doesn't make a difference). Any ideas?

    @MaLd0n it looks like you've done it again! It looks like everything is working again, including those ethernet kexts without KPs. Here's another dump to double check and see if I screwed anything up... Send me Michaels-iMac.zip

    @MaLd0n So, I've updated to macOS Mojave... but it wasn't without any issues. When trying to upgrade (and then finally doing the first boot after upgrading) I noticed macOS would kernel panic almost immediately. My first thought was to manually disable kexts in Clover until it finally booted... and it did. It seems IntelMausiEthernet.kext and/or AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext was causing the kernel panic, as when removing both the kernel panics went away. So I removed those from my Clover kexts folder in the meantime. So I'm thinking there's probably something broken in my system somewhere. Otherwise, the other changes I've made since the last time was switching from FakeSMC to VirtualSMC, which seems to be working just fine. But who knows, it might be the cause, not sure. Just in case I did a new dump after booting into Mojave, would you mind looking and seeing if there's any issues, especially issues which might be the cause of those driver kexts kernel panicking? Thanks! Send me Michaels-iMac.zip EDIT: Also did a new DSDT dump with Clover just in case: DSDTDump.zip

    Are you using a HDD or SSD for the macOS boot drive? If SSD, do you have TRIM enabled and using APFS? That can cause a slow boot with an SSD last I read. Though, @MaLd0n with Mojave can we enable TRIM again or does it still cause slower boot times with APFS and SSDs?

  8. Wait, so you don't need to add AppleImageLoader.efi and it'll still work fine?

    Shouldn't AppleImageLoader.efi be added to Clover's installer alongside ApfsDriverLoader.efi when building Clover and installing (automatically if using ApfsDriverLoader.efi)?

    I updated to F7 a couple weeks ago. Works fine here.

    So over a week later with the change to the RX 580... and everything seems to be working. If anyone is going to switch to one of these cards and font rendering looks bad, checkout the patch-edid script as it fixed it for me. @MaLd0n My only nitpick is... I don't suppose there's a way to get the shutdown spinner animation to work with this GPU or perhaps it's a macOS bug? On shutdown, it just goes to black without the spinner and then shuts down without the spinner animation ever appearing. It's a small nitpick I admit - at least the Apple boot logo animation works.
  12. Since ApfsSupportPkg was renamed to AppleSupportPkg it doesn't look like it's added to Clover UEFI Drivers selection anymore when using this script to build r4645, so that could be a problem for those using that. The script likely needs updated to handle the AppleSupportPkg name change.

    @MaLd0n I've Installed the card and it works great... but the font/text rendering looks bad. Hard to describe and my searches have yielded little except that it may be related to SMBIOS. Any ideas? EDIT: Fixed it by using the patch-edid.rb script create an override file to force the display into RGB mode for my monitor. Works perfectly now, YAY!

    Yep, already got those. No injecting AMD or anything like that needed, right? I'll uninstall the Web Drivers, remove nvda_drv=1 and nv_disable=1 from Clover's boot arguments and set NvidiaWeb from True to False before installing the card.

    @MaLd0n I ordered a AMD RX 580 card (a Sapphire PULSE RX 580 8GB) and it'll be here tomorrow. Thankfully, I got ahold of one for around $250 (before they went up to $300+ again). What changes will I need to make to switch from my Nvidia GTX 970 to the new AMD RX 580? I already know I'll have to remove the Nvidia Web Drivers (thank God, no more waiting for new Web Drivers with updates), and I also assume I'll probably need a new DSDT after adding the card. But is there anything else (already got the current revision of WhateverGreen added, so that's no issue)? Thanks, as always.
