    Ozmosis modded BIOS Repository

    ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image? https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d. I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers. so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it. thanks again for everyones assistance.

    <-- confused but rolling with it. re-edited my ssdt-5 as well as my DSDT to resolve my USB issues for 10.13, and now my bluetooth no longer works, the port it is on, IOUSBHostDevice@1d140000 fails to create the device and then disables the port. any help would be Awesome. HBP Edited to included DSDT and SSDT-5 for easier assistance. Archive.zip
  5. Probably a glitch with diskutil. Stranger things have happened. I am glad that it worked. HBP
  6. That is the underlying command that the diskutil uses to format a partition. HBP
  7. try setting your system SMBIOS as an iMac 15,1. if the kext is the one I believe you're talking about, then it may be a compatibility issue with it not fully loading or implementing the patches (read the SourceForge supported model index for more information.) Hope this Helps. HBP
  8. first question to ask is how did you install clover? if you have not formatted the EFI partition fat32 then it probably will not mount in clover configurator because it does not see that partition as being a valid partition. so... time to get Scary. mess up and this will Screw your machine. <code> diskutil list diskutil eraseVolume FAT32 EFI /Volumes/DiskXs1 // **note X is the drive you want to reformat the EFI partition on. </code> then run clover installer and chose the EFI options and tell it you need to modify the boot record, (I believe at this point they have modified the installer to look for the Host disk vs the APFS disks) and this should make a bootable clover install. if not, let me know and I can ether point you to the guides to manually install the clover boot loader(a pain in the butt, or write a quick guide on the process.) HBP
  9. use disk util and list the partitions, on the host disk (not the disk that is formatted APFS, because that is inside a container on the host disk) there should be 2 partitions, EFI and Apple_APFS Container here is an example /dev/disk2 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *320.1 GB disk2 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1 2: Apple_APFS Container disk3 319.9 GB disk2s2 /dev/disk3 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +319.9 GB disk3 Physical Store disk2s2 1: APFS Volume OSX_HS 28.5 GB disk3s1 2: APFS Volume VM 9.7 GB disk3s2 3: APFS Volume Preboot 19.8 MB disk3s3 4: APFS Volume Recovery 20.5 KB disk3s4 5: APFS Volume OSX_HS2 24.0 GB disk3s5 the disk3 is what is inside the container disk2 is what is the Physical disk.

  10. The above is why the patched FakeSMC I linked is so important, with the older non patched FakeSMC the OS see's the machine as a Fake. by updating the revisions as Ammoune87 said in #2447121 (the only changes I made to that FakeSMC) my system stopped both stalling and panicking on boot and was able to get into the post install High Sierra. HBP
  11. Change SMBIOS to iMac15,1 Mac-42FD25EABCABB274. update Serial for that model and install Lilu.kext, Nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext. without the change to a SMBIOS model that is supported by the NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext that kext will never load making the rest of the attempt futile. HBP
  12. Sierra had Metal V1 for video access layer, High Sierra has Metal V2. besides having to work out several emulation bugs (changing my SMBIOS to an iMac15,1 from a 14,2 and updating my SSDT/DSDT files) there have been very little differences between the two. if you are using it as a graphics platform go with High Sierra, if you are Ising it as a general machine and don't want to go through the headache of making it closer to a 'Real Mac' go with Sierra. HBP
  13. try this FakeSMC and let me know how it goes. FakeSMC.kext.zip HBP
  14. Hello frustrated, what the below quoted code says is that #1, created a valid cache (that's good) #2 when it tried to update the symlink to point to it that process failed. to resolve that error, from ether single user mode ( -s boot mode) or the recovery partition run this list of commands. (CAUTION: both of these modes by default will give you SUDO access to the system be very carful what you type.) <code> fsck mount -uw / rm -rf "/Volumes/MAC SSD/System/Library/Prelinkedkernel/prelinkedkernel" touch "/Volumes/MAC SSD/System/Library/Extensions" && kextcache -system-caches "/Volumes/MAC SSD/" kextcache -u "/Volumes/MAC SSD/" </code> this list of commands is slightly different from the ones in the aforementioned guide, but they do basically the same thing. the differences are that I took your Volume name to customize them, and that I forced the rebuild of your system cache after deleting the prelinkedcache. this has the effect of having the kext cache manager look for where these files are missing from and rebuilding them in my experience. HBP
  15. replace your FakeSMC with this one and cleanup your Clover directory. this one has the SMC Version and type altered and updated to make High Sierra Happy booting into the iMac platform. HBP P.S. Credit does not go to me for these changes, I got them from this forum.
