  1. In this video I first show the boot time of my system running on an OCZ Vertex 3 SSD APFS formatted and with TRIM enabled. As you can see the boot has a long pause at these "FIPSPOST_USER" stuff. The solution that always worked for me is to create a time machine backup and restore to disk. As you can see after the restoring that long pause is drastically reduced. The initial boot time is 45 seconds circa, after restoring is down to 22 seconds. TRIM is still enabled and disk is APFS.
  2. Did you have sleep / wake problems with this MB ?
  3. I don't know if this ssdt stuff is needed at all. I am not using the port limit patch, I don't need more than 15 ports. My understanding is that if you apply the patch you could have problems re array bounds but if you don't you should get 15 ports and it seems all the ports are working without any modification of the kext or applying an ssdt.
  4. From what I can gather the system is using the XHC device. I plugged both usb 2 and usb 3 devices in all back ports, plus some case ports which are connected to internal headers. These were the ports used: the USB 2.0 device is always showing like 0 1 2 and the USB 3 like 0 1 on every port I tried. While connecting an usb 3 device and an usb 2 device to the usb 3.1 (blue port) on the back used this: Also these are the ports shown by usbview.exe under windows, I think we can create a custom injector for usbinjectall with this info.
  5. hmm as you can see I am using USBInjectAll.kext and XHCI-200-series-injector.kext and I think they are just working. I will check USB functionality of all ports later and report back.
  6. Hmm no you can use usbinjectall and make your injector. However I didn't do anything and USB is working.
  7. Because all the hardware is working out of the box with those configs in clover.
  8. The new appleHDA kext must have been changed in this public beta as the patcher doesn't work anymore. In my case ALC 269VB V2. ---- edit ---- it works indeed, I was making some mistake.
  9. AppleHDA Patcher

    it's broken in 10.13.4 beta 1 (17E139j) for Realtek ALC 269VB V2.
  10. APFS performance tuning

    You need trim.
  11. How many HDMI ports does your card have? Switch them.
  12. APFS performance tuning

    The slow boot problem is not Clover related. It happens in real Macs too. To solve it backup / restore to ssd (with time machine).
  13. Also from the Samsung FAQ on SSDs: What is TRIM? TRIM is a facility by which the OS can notify the SSD when data is either marked for erase or no longer valid. TRIM helps to make Garbage Collection more efficient by preparing invalid data for deletion. When the OS “deletes” data, the data does not actually go anywhere. The space in which it resides is simply marked as “free space” that may be used later. By default, the OS doesn't let the SSD know which data is now free. TRIM allows the OS to inform the SSD which data is no longer valid, allowing the SSD to skip over invalid data when performing Garbage Collection. Does Windows XP support TRIM? No, only Windows 7 and above supports the TRIM feature. The Samsung SSD Magician software enables you to manually use TRIM on both Windows XP and Windows Vista. As you can see TRIM is OS dependent. XP uses NTFS and even VISTA does but TRIM is only supported from Windows 7. http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/support/faqs-03/
  14. The links you provided don't tell anywhere that APFS performs TRIM ops on it's own. The disk and the file system don't know 'horse manure' of what files your are deleting and what sectors to flag as unused. The command is issued by the OS not by the file system. "APFS supports TRIM" means it can handle the TRIM commands issued by the OS. If you disable TRIM in the OS then you are not trimming anything. "A trim command (known as TRIM in the ATA command set, and UNMAP in the SCSI command set) allows an operating system to inform a solid-state drive (SSD) which blocks of data are no longer considered in use and can be wiped internally." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trim_(computing) "The APFS code, like the HFS+ code, uses the TRIM command, for better space management and performance." The command is issued by the OS both for HFS+ and APFS (or NTFS, etc..), if you disable it TRIM is gone. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_File_System TRIM command is issued by the OS regardless of APFS or HFS or what SSD you have on your system. If you disable it you don't get TRIM at all, pure and simple. More on ATA TRIM: https://www.thomas-krenn.com/en/wiki/ATA_Trim In order for ATA Trim to work, the following components must be supported: by the SSD itself by the operating system (Windows 7, for example)[2] or Linux kernels as of version 2.6.33[3]) by the file system
  15. You are completely wrong. what do you mean "redid my EFI folder"? If you disable TRIM boot will be fast but problem is not solved. I solved it in 4 different systems 3 hackintosh and a macmini by backing up the entire system with time machine and restoring it to ssd. In all 4 cases boot time was 30 seconds faster with TRIM enabled and disk still in APFS.
