    Laptop: (Clover) MSI GS60-2PEi716SR21 (1080p), i7-4710HQ, GTX 870m (disabled), Intel HD 4600, OS X 10.9.5/Windows 10

    Desktop: (Clover) Silverstone SG07, Asrock mini-ITX H67m, GTX 670, OS X 10.11.3/Windows 7 (Windows 10 sucks on this machine)
  1. Hey nawlinsborn73, I can turn off my keyboards backlight on my MSI GS60 after I turn it on. At first it glows red and I can dimm it, in 2 steps, the third step is off. When I booted Windows and install the correct driver, I can adjust the backlights color and brightness. But this is only when I start the application. Also, on Mac OS X and the other time it glows red on default, include the 3 Steps.
  2. I don't have to disable my nvidia card in the bios. I can boot both setting. Here look at my bios setting. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/y17oys22poo4ulv/AAAre3far880ccKZexf4iCRta?dl=0 Have you an options like me, Primary Display? But I don't think this is your problem.
  3. Hey ccarrieta, I have treid to boot into yosemite, but every time I boot from stick with clover I get a black screen with a beachball. But I know that Apple have switched the graphics kext and I think that is the Problem. This post is helpful for that problem. http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-laptop-support/145427-fix-intel-hd4400-hd4600-mobile-yosemite.html yes i have a dual boot system, on one 128gb sad I have Windows 8.1 and on the other I have Mac OS X 10.9.5 with Clover. At the moment it isn't a perfect boot, because under legacy boot sometimes I can boot with clover into Windows 8.1 and every time into OS X. And under Uefi boot with clover I can boot every time into OS X, but I can't install Windows. I have treid to install windows 7/8.1 with a uefi-boot stick and with a external usb-drive. It didn't work. But here is a very helpful post!!! http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293574-beginners-guide-to-uefi-tripledual-boot-os-x-windows-and-linux-kali-on-an-single-true-gpt-ssd/ He have a MSI GT70 with similar Configuration. SlowMo
  4. Hey ccarrieta, you're lucky, because I bought the MSI GS60-2PEi716SR21 and I'm writing this answer under Mac OSX on this Laptop I returned my XMG C703, because I had 5 technical problems (webcam faulty/dark pixels/deformed d-Cover after support repair/2x bios bugs). Now I have bought me the MSI GS60. Its smaller/more portable and ligther and with a GTX 870m its so more powerful... Before I bought the MSI GS60, I was looking for a similar CPU and the i7-4710HQ with a Intel 4600 was good enough. First Pros.: - For the moment I have only use my Guide from XMG C703 and it works amazing good... - In the Bios I was found that you can turn of the GTX 870m and thats really great for battery life (around 3 hours). Cons.: -The Speakers... I think in this Laptop are 4 Speakers, under Windows 8.1 the sound are bad, because the front left speaker make bad noises. (like I would over scroll the Volume in VLC-Player 200%) Under Mac OSX I have at the moment only 2 speakers behind/under the keyboard on. Whats work at the moment: - Ethernet - Brightness - Keyboard + Pad - Sound(not fully) only 2 Speakers, no mic | but it is an ALC892 Chip and it is supported... - webcam - battery status - bluetooth Not work at the moment: - GTX 870m but deactivate in BIOS - sleep - wlan (same as by the XMG, replace it with a supported wlan chip) - sd-cardslot I'm confident that I get shortly more parts to work… (except sd-cardslot and gtx 870m) All in all it is a very cool mobile Gaming and Hackintosh machine...
  5. Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

    I use already the latest Clover...how can I use it on the fly? My Laptop is a XMG C703 similar as MSI GS70. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/297447-how-to-install-macosx-109x-mavericks-on-a-xmg-c703/ http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/294224-how-to-install-macosx-109-mavericks-on-a-msi-gs70-laptop/ How did you get iMessage natively? iCloud worked and so on, but iMessage show me a notification, that I must contact the support...
  6. Have you check manually all Channels in System Preference. You have an XMG C703? Have you install VoodooHDA-v2.8.4.Lion.pkg and AppleHDA.kext (install with Kext Wizard)? From my Dropbox? https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j2sy8e6wi6agjyn/uFZq6N7KAV https://www.dropbox.com/s/mafbhhl601s0x84/Audio%20%28Voodoo%2BAppleHDA%29.zip Show your System Preference like this:
  7. Hey madhan_2005, I have a EFI Partion on my Macintosh SSD. There are the efi boot files. At the moment I have a dual boot System, but every time I want to boot in Windows 8.1 I switch in Bios to Legacy Mode. Than it boot automatic in Windows 8.1. I want to reinstall Windows 8.1 on UEFI with CMS to use Clover. I don't know, if it is the right solution. I also wanted to disable the unnecessary boot partition from windows, but it have no UUID, or I can't find it, but from all other partitions I found it... The only thing I have is to display the 2 Partitions: Windows 8.1 and Mavericks like this....
  8. @ham4ever I use the following ig-platform-id: 0xa260006 forthe Intel HD Graphics 4600 I use Colver Bootloader...and I have QE/CI with 1024MB Here is a link for more Information:http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/297447-how-to-install-macosx-109x-mavericks-on-a-xmg-c703/

Step 1: Create the USB Installer (taken mostly from Vanilla Install guide) In a previous MacOSX install, use DiskUtility to Partition a USB disk with 1 HFS+ Partition, make sure GUID partion map is selected in the options. Mount your Mavericks dmg image Go to the mounted image, right click on "Mavericks.app" and choose "Show Contents" Go to "Contents/Shared Support" and mount InstallESD.dmg Mount BaseSystem.dmg by typing the following in terminal: open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg In DiskUtility, go to the "OS X Base System", Restore it to your USB disk. Navigate to /System/Installation on your USB drive. Delete the “Packages” link, then copy the Packages folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. Copy the following kext's to /System/Library/Extensions on your USB stick. FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext files from the Vanilla Guide The patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze (optional, untested) You can try copying the Elan Touchpad drivers as well, read Step 5 "Touchpad and Keyboard" section below and delete approriate kexts, this could save you from needing a USB keyboard/mouse during installation Install Clover to the usb drive, customize the install with the following options: Install for UEFI booting only Themes->Choose one (BootCamp is nice) Drivers64UEFI->OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Copy the mach_kernel file from RehabMan to the root of the USB drive Cut out all Bluetooth kexts to prevent hanging on bootscreen System/Library/Extensions/... 1. AppleBluetoothMultitouch.kext 2. IOBluetoothFamily.kext 3. IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext Use Clover Configurator to edit the config file in EFI-Partition 1. Open DiskUtility, click on the usb-stick, click on information or press cmd+i 2. Look for the volume number (e.g. disk1) 3. open clover configurator 4. clover asks to select the efi partition 5. select the efi partition an mount it 6. clover opens the editor 7. ACPI > FixDisplay uncheck 8. Graphics > ig-platform-id 0xa260006 9. Graphics > Inject EDID 10. Graphics > VRAM 1024 Step 2: My BIOS Settings: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pnopddabcj092jo/Alui1TXoAa Step 3: Installing OS X Boot into the installer, you should be able to select the boot order in your bios to boot from the USB key. Now boot into the installer (return to the menu with all the OS icons and select the USB key. It'll read "Mac OS X from OS X Base System“ or something) If you did not install the Elan kexts, you will have to use a USB keyboard and mouse for the install. Install OS X (use a HFS+ partition on a drive partitioned with a GUID partition map, „Macintosh“ is a good name for the partition) Boot back into the installer like you just did early Select "Utilities" from the top and then Terminal You need to copy all those kext's you installed on the USB drive to your new installation partition. Type in the following lines, replacing „Macintosh“ with the actual name of the partition you installed to (hint: after entering the first one, press the up arrow to save yourself some typing): cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/Macintosh/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/Macintosh/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/Macintosh/System/Library/Extensions/ Likewise, copy the patched mach_kernel from your USB drive to the install, replacing the original cp –R /mach_kernel /Volumes/Macintosh/ Optional: cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext /Volumes/Macintosh/System/^/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /Volumes/Macintosh/System/Library/Extensions/ Now type "reboot" and hit enter Step 3: Intial Reboot Reboot again into the installer, boot from the hard-drive, not the USB drive As MacOSX 10.9.x pops up, do a little dance of joy. Install Clover onto your hard-drive, choosing the same options as before and install clover preference pane. Install Clover Configurator and run it. Do the following: Go to File->Open on the top bar and choose /EFI/Clover/config.plist (this is your current Clover configuration) ACPI > FixDisplay uncheck Graphics > ig-platform-id 0xa260006 Graphics > Inject EDID Graphics > VRAM 1024 Step 4: Bluetooth Reinstall all Bluetooth Kext with Kext Wizard. to System/Library/Extensions/... 1. AppleBluetoothMultitouch.kext 2. IOBluetoothFamily.kext 3. IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext Step 5: Touchpad and Keyboard Use the files from my Folder or download it from: EMlyDinEsH's Elan drivers (i use Elan version 1.8.2 beta at time of writing): http://forum.osxlati...river-mac-os-x/ I have configurate my favorite actions on the touchpad. (use my configured kexts) In finder, go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete the following if you can find them: ApplePS2Controller, VoodooPS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, ApplePS2Keyboard and anything that says Elan Touchpad. Using Kext Wizard, install ApplePS2Controller and ApplePS2ElanTouchpad kexts Keyboard lighning works natively (on XMG Fn++ or Fn+- on NumBlock) Reboot and enjoy. Step 6: Audio/Sound Use the files from my Folder or download it from: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/1194-voodoohda-2-8-4-pkg-installer/ Install 2.8.4 Lion. I got it only run with voodoohda and applehda.kext (I have no Error free dsdt) Only thing is you must select a channel you want to use. Step 7: Wlan https://github.com/toleda/airport_pcie-hm/tree/master/airport_kext_enabler I replace the internal Wlan Module with the Broadcom BCM43225HMB The only thing is to install with KextWizard the toledaARPT.kext Were to buy: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Broadcom-BCM43225HMB-half-size-mini-PCI-E-Wlan-Karte-300mbps-Bluetooth-3-0-/360753189974? Step 8: Ethernet http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/120084-working-kext-killer-e2200.html Install with KextWizard the ALXEthernet.kext or ALXEthernet.kext in Debug Folder. Step 9: Brightness Use the files from my Folder or download it from: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-blinkscreen For help use REDME and or look at github/RehabMan Copy org.rehabman.blinkscreen.plist to /Library/LaunchAgents Copy blink screen to /usr/bin Step 10: iCloud I get it worked with SMBIOS as MacBookAir6,2 iMessage dosn’t work yet… Many thanks to linuxgirl (I was so naughty and used your guide as draft )
  11. Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

    hmm, thank you, but I get Kernal Panic... And when I open the DSDT_clean-mo1.aml and compile it, I get 201 Errors...
  12. Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

    To Post #10 I have no idea how your method works. In which terminal I need to copy the code? # in Terminal, with recent iasl iasl -da *.bin *.aml I need to use the program MaciASL, DSDT Editor or DSDTSE? I found this: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/4-iasl-intel-acpi-tools-x64/ Can you post a tutorial or some explanations? At the moment I get about 150 Errors, but I don't use the Code in the Terminal...I don´t know how does it goes... THANK YOU GUYS!!

  14. Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

    I got some Problems. First is, I don't find the option "ACPI Tools" on Windows 8.1 at the actual AIDA64 Version. But I have found a older Version 3.20.2600 and there ist the option "ACPI Tools". The Program says that my Motherboard was not found or is Unkown. Second is, that when I use the old Version of AIDA64 in ACPI Tool and click on Save Table I see 7 Lists of SSDT. Which one you need? Should I upload all? Here is a Zip with all SSDT 1 to 7 from up to down and the actual DSDT. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fgg87z14moyboji/DSDT%20SSDT%20AIDA64.zip
  15. Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

    Hey, do you think that your patch is compatible or can be modified to work on my dsdt? I have a Nvidia GTX 765m and a Intel HD4600 DSDT https://www.dropbox.com/s/vx30qnw4l270qcc/DSDT.aml IOREG https://www.dropbox.com/s/4rffijvra3verdw/XMG%20C702.ioreg Is it important that I create my DSDT with AIDA64, or can I create my DSDT with DSDT Editor on Mac? I use Clover v.2330.
