  1. Upcoming skylake build tips

    Thanks! I will do that too. But a simple this Board is more compatible than this board would have been more useful than name calling. It's not being lazy, it's called have kids and work to do.
  2. Hi all, I have built a successful Hackintosh on a Lenovo W520 laptop previously. I now need a desktop power workstation to use with DaVinci Resolve, Adobe CC, AutoCad, Sketchup, FCPX under El Capitan. I wanna have the least hassle possible building a stable working Hack with minimum tweaks and forum searching (I know this is wishful thinking). Here's the build, any pitfalls, caveats or concerns to be wary of? MB: GA-70MX-Gaming 5 CPU: 6700k GPU: EVGA GTX970 4GB GDDR5 256bits 16GB Ram Samsung M.2 SSD for OSX boot Samsung 840EVO for Win 10 boot 2x Kingston V300 240GB SSD in Raid 0 Questions: Any difficulties with basic functions? Sleep, sound, Lan, etc? USB 3.0 is it workable? I really need as much USB speed as I can Get. USB 3.1 type C? Does it even exist under OSX? Any way to get it working? Suggestions for better or easier to work with parts? Thanks!
  3. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Thanks tluck, FakeSMC is not in S/L/E. Should it be there AND in EFI???? I don't think I've ever had it in S/L/E
  4. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Hi all, I had a working W520 with Mavericks 10.9.3 up until today. I rebooted into Windows (which is on a separate SSD) to do something, and when I tried to boot OSX after that, it gets stuck on Waiting for DSMOS. It never did that before, I did not fiddle with any kexts or config before rebooting, and FakeSMC is present and still the same in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.9 I really don't understand what is happening. The machine is kinda old and has been used extensively. Lately some weird things have happened (sound stopped working suddenly between 2 reboots, now the sound card that used to work just fine is not seen by OSX anymore, heating issues). Does anyone have any idea what could be causing that and more importantly: Any way to fix the DSMOS issue through Windows? I have MacDrive on my Windows partition, which allows me access and basic repair functions on my OSX disk. Thanks for the help.
  5. SMBIOS problem with Clover

    that is the one. I'm not using 3128 since it won't boot.
  6. SMBIOS problem with Clover

    Thanks, while you're on it, I'm using Clover r2721, if I try to update it to the most recent 3128, the boot gets stuck on waiting for DSMOS. I have put all the kexts back in 10.9 folder including the matching version of FakeSMC, but the boot won't pass waiting for DSMOS. So for the time being, I reverted back to 2721 because I on an important project at the moment and can't afford down time on the machine. Thanks for taking a look! SLL_config.plist.zip
  7. SMBIOS problem with Clover

    Thank you! Here they are. I've put the .dsl and .aml. It's generated by the little app posted in this tread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only/page-25#entry1952283SimonLL_SSDT.zip
  8. SMBIOS problem with Clover

    The cpu doesn't seem to go in Turbo Mode. Running Cinebench, it will not go above x25 @ 2.48Ghz. I suspect it is not going higher because of temps. All cores showed 96-98 degrees @ x25 in HWMonitor. It actually had to go down to x23 midway into the test. I re pasted the CPU and GPU with AC Silver 5 last year and the fan is clean. There are 2 models of fan/heatsink for this laptop, I might try to buy the other one. I don't need turbo so much, because when I render, I usually allow more than enough time, but it could be nice. I'm just glad it's not running at x30 all the time anymore.

  10. SMBIOS problem with Clover

    Thanks for the help. I managed to boot fine with MBP9,1 SMBIOS. It doesn't seem to be using a lot of states, HWsensor reports only x8, x24, x28, x30, x32 I think I found the reason why it wasn't using x8 at all before. Spotlight was always trying to index my Mounted EFI partition and my ExFAT Hard Drive. I think it was driving the CPU in turbo mode non-stop which caused overheating. I excluded thes drives from spotlight and now the cpu goes down to x8 when I'm not working it (reading this forum for example) which it did not before. Thanks a lot for the knowledge.
  11. SMBIOS problem with Clover

    I have tried MBP9,2 and 9,1 and it still turns the screen off at login.
  12. SMBIOS problem with Clover

    Those are Ivy Bridge laptops are they not?
  13. Using Clover in UEFI mode, I can't use my laptop with the proper SMBIOS. I suspect it is causing my CPU to always be in Turbo mode and overheating (70 idle). The CPU won't go below multiplier x26. I would very much like to fix that. I have generated SSDT, have tried Clover generating P States & C States, nothing changes. The laptop is a Thinkpad W520, i7 Sandy Bridge with Nvidia 1000m Graphics running 10.9.3. I do use Nvidia injection in Clover. If I use the proper SMBIOS: MacBookPro8,2, the boot process completes, but it goes to a black screen and stays there. Same for MacBookPro8,1. MacPro5,1 causes kernel panic. The only SMBIOS I found working is iMac13,2. Any idea how I could get clover to boot the correct SMBIOS? Thanks!
  14. Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    Hi all, I have been running my W520 on Mavericks with Clover UEFI for some time now, thanks to all the help I got here :-D The only thing is, the CPU is not scaling and ALWAYS running very hot. 83C Hot, all the time. When I was under Mountain Lino with the SSDT I extracted from the RevoGirl script, I never had temp issues and the CPU scaled perfectly. Now, it seems it's always in Turbo mode. I've been using it anyways, because I had some projects to get done, but I'm worried of damaging it. Anyways, what is the procedure with SSDT? I have the same SSDT.aml that I had under Mountain Lion under EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched is the file name case sensitive? Here is my clover config setup: Also, I have been using a iMac SMBIOS, because the MBP8,2 SMBIOS won't boot. Could that be part of it? As always, many THANKS for the help! Cheers!
  15. Nvidia Brightness control

    Hi, I have a fully functional build on my Lenovo W520 with Nvidia graphics on Mavericks 10.9.3. I am only missing Brightness control. I was able to get everything working with the help of the T420 and W510 threads, but most people and systems on these threads are using Intel Integrated Graphics. I need the discrete graphics. So from what I have right now, I can see the brightness slider in System Prefs, and one of the hotkeys for Brightness (ScrLck) shows the sun OSD, but it has no effect on the actual brightness of the display. On my system: Clover UEFI boot is patching the DSDT for the PNLF section and injecting Nvidia (Inject Nvidia=true). i7-2760QM, Nvidia Quadro 1000m 2GB, OSX 10.9.3, Here is my GPU IOREG. It seems I only need to tell OSX to assign brightness control to the display through DSDT, but I don't know how to do that. Anybody successfully works with a Fermi based card with Mavericks? Thanks!
