    SOLVED skylake-random-reboots

    High @MiezeIn the meantime I reverted back to my original configuration without a patched DSDT.aml. After I replaced the WiFi/BT, card that caused the instabillty, I now enjoy reliability that I only dreamed about a few weeks ago. Sleep monitoring history can be gleaned from the 3 attached files. If I were to continue using the DSDT.aml that @MaLd0nprovided I would loose control as a chef in my own kitchen, that I was unhappy with to let happen. Fortunately my own minimalistic configuration proved adequate and also allows me to stay in charge in my kitchen. Thanks in any case for all the support you guys have provided. Note that I attached "Sleep Monitoring" files for both of my hacks. For both all relevant "Energy Saver" options are also ticked. I now marked the thread as "Solved" Greets

    SOLVED skylake-random-reboots

    Hi @MaLd0n A few days ago I removed the Fenvi FV-T919 WiFi/BT card and ever since I did that, 4 days ago, the random freezes/reboots after waking the machine from sleep, have disappeared. The only thing I noticed now is that sometimes when I wake the machine there is no Ethernet service. Removing and reinserting the Ethernet cable on my 8 port network switch usually restores the service. Any idea how to fix that? I need another big favor, will you please provide me with the patches that you used for my DSDT file. I have disassembled it and compared the result with the disassembled version obtained with F4 at the Clover boot screen. There is quite a lot that you put in, but I would like to be able to do it myself should I ever have to. Hoping you can assist with that request. Greets

    Yes that could be in your case, I do not believe my Samsung 500 EVO SSD can be blamed though. I already swapped it with the one in my Haswell build and there it works perfect as well. I guess it is my WiFi/BT adapter. If this machine crashes when I get back home tomorrow night I will restore the IGPU and remove the WiFi card. Then I will run wired instead, as a test of cause. It will take some time but with your configuration I am hopeful that we will still find the cause of the problem somewhat down the line. Will keep you informed. Would you be happy to let me have your DSDT.dsl for my board and the patches that you put in so that I can recreate it myself should I wish to experiment with different bios versions.? I would really appreciate if you could provide that info for me. Somehow or other I want to get to the bottom of this problem and cannot only rely on your precious time. Greets

    Hi @MaLd0n thanks for your feedback, I never had a single KP when I use the machine, only when I wake the machine from sleep after it has been sleeping unhindered for a lengthy bit of time and I then wake it. Today I have been using the machine continuously for almost 9 hours, doing all sort of things, with no problems whatsoever. Of cause I am using your DSDT.aml that disables the IGPU and I have also disabled it in config.plist as well as in bios. I think your KP in your MBP , a real Apple I guess, is unrelated to what I experience on my Skylake hack. Will run test for a while longer to see what is happening without the IGPU. No your MBP is a hack I can see it from some of the kexts in the KP report. My tests continue. Will not be at home tomorrow though, so the test can proceed without interference from me. :-) Greets

    Hi @MaLd0n after 21 hours of working well it crashed when I woke it from a long sleep. By a long sleep I mean that the machine was not used but left to wake, each hour or so, by itself. When I finally woke it by a keypress from the Apple BT keyboard the screens came on, I detected network activity on my network monitor and then all of a sudden it just shut down. Attached please find: RunMe dump in 3 parts Crash report 01 May 2018 07-00 am The RunMe dump was done with your new DSDT.aml that disables the IGPU. In addition I removed the tick against "Inject Intel" as well as the connecterless id "0x19120001" from "the Ig-platform-id" setting in the config.plist file That should ensure that no attempt is made to access the IGPU (530) which I have disabled in BIOS as well. I also updated Clover from 4444 -> 4449 The crash report seems to point to the WiFi/LPBT addon card as the culprit. I have 2 of these identical cards, one is operational in my Haswell build which is working like a dream. I have already swopped the cards around between the 2 machines but that did not solve the Skylake random reboots when waking from sleep problem. I even used different Pcie slots for the card but that also did not help. Nevertheless if you want me to I can do all that again. Oh I forgot, I even unplugged the USB connector for the BT part of this card to disable bluetooth. I then used a CSR BT dongle, and the crashes continued. So maybe I should now remove that card and use a wired keyboard and mouse as a test. Your call however, I will do what the doctor orders :-) Thanks for helping me.

    Hi @MaLd0n. Thanks for this DSDT.aml, will test it as soon as Skylake has frozen/crashed again after waking from sleep. At the moment I am testing to find out what effect the removal of AirportBrcmFixup.kext has on sleep stabiliry. This kext may not have been compiled by me against the same debug version of Lilu.kext that you used for the kexts that you provided me. I have not as yet had further problems since that kext was removed. The screenshot refers, but it is early days still :-) Will slip it in as soon as Skylake plays up again and let you know. Greets.

    Hi @MaLd0n Skylake crashed already 2 times after I have woken it from sleep. Here is a new dump after I removed AirportBrcmFixup.kext from /Clover.../other. I also removed its argument brcmfx-country=#a. Now my configuration is exactly as you suggested. Will reboot and run RunMe again. Thereafter the presence of AirportBrcmFixup.kext should not be detectable in the dump. New F2 and F4 keypress at Clover menu. @Mieze 's IntelMausiEthernet.kext is still in /L/E where I believe it belongs unless you tell me otherwise of cause. A copy of FakeSMC.kext is also in /L/E to ensure that it is in the cache. Greets Send me workshop.zip CLOVER.zip ACPI.zip

    Hi @MaLd0n I managed to get my Skylake build running with your configuration files as well as your DSDT.aml. All my previous functionality has been retained. Now I need to test sleep and see if the random freezes/lockups when waking the machine, after it has been sleeping a considerable length of time, has also been resolved. Something tells me its all fixed. THANK YOU, a genius at work. Give me a few days to test, and if all goes well we can close this topic. I am very tired now and will come back again after having had some sleep. There is a problem with sudo kextcache -i / This seemed to have crept in with the C17E202 security update, but finally got it working.. Kindly have a look at the latest output files generated by your RunMe script and then please let me know if I should apply some more patches that you consider necessary. Later on I would like to know what patches you applied to the DSDT.aml so that I can generate my own if I ever have to such as for instance when there is another bios upgrade. I am presently on bios version F23g. and I don't yhink it will stay there. Signing off at 4.30 am here in Namibia. Greetings and once again THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU and for @Mieze I attached my own Mieze :-) ACPI.zip CLOVER.zip Send me workshop.zip

    Hi @MaLd0n Done all the changes but cannot boot the machine. It ends in pitch black screens . Cannot access via remote desktop and can also not ping the machine. Will have to first restore to a working state. and take it from there maybe one step at a time. Contact you later when I can access the machine again, either via remote desktop - VNC or direct boot. greets

    Hi @MaLd0n Some questions. On board audio is disabled using HDMI audio via Lilu.kext 1.2.3 and WhateverGreen.kext 1.1.8 in /L/E HDMI audio works well with excellent fidelity. Therefore I believe AppleALC.kext is not needed ? I use Shiki.kext 2.2.6 also in /L/E with shikigva=16 as "custom flag" to prevent iTunes from crashing - tested and working. I Use @Mieze 's latest 2.4.0d0 in /L/E will move that to /Clover.../other. I am not using USBInjectAll.kext. at all, my USB configuration is embedded in the info.plist file of GA-Z170X-UD3-USB.kext in /L/E. My ioreg will reveal that my USB setup is for 11 ports well within the 15 port limit. This has always worked well for this mobo starting with Sierra beta releases. I would be hesitant to use the USBInjectAll USB configuration method at this stage - unless you decide otherwise of cause. The AirportBrcmFixup.kext is removed altogether as it is used to set country information for WiFi to #a - not crytical at this stage I think. WiFi is disabled presently. What I suggest is removing my kexts in /L/E do a kextcache -i / update and use your kexts in /Clover../other instead, except USBInjectAll.kext and AppleALC.kext. Busy doing that and will send a new RunMe dump in a moment. Greets

    Hi @MaLd0n thanks for assisting me in trying to get my Skylake build stable when waking from sleep. The dump is attached. I had to split the file into 3 files for the update to work. Holding thumbs. Greets Send me workshop.zip ACPI.zip CLOVER.zip

    OK thanks, this is a bit over my head but I will dig in and indulge in some heavy reading on that. I am using 2 x LG-27UD58 IPS displays each connected to a DP port on my video card, which is a Radeon RX-580 Strix, so the MST/SST might not apply in my case. What bothers me are the panics as per the attachment. These also happened when I was still using a Nvidia GTX-970, card prior to swapping that with the AMD RX-580. So I wander whether looking for a "graphics" solution/problem, might not be the correct avenue to pursue. Greets

    Hi @Mieze Thanks will try that should I continue to have random sleep wake-up problems and after I have tested @Allan 's config.plist more thoroughly. Greets

    Hi @Allan That's fair but maybe @Mieze can enlighten us on the SSDT-AMD.aml she developed prior to the release of macOS 10.13.4
