    Clover General discussion

    I was curious about the new packaging (which looks good) - but was specifically curious about the exclusion of the EXT_PACKAGES - such as the AptioMemoryFix group? Are we left to figure out which one is best/works -- or what is the thought/rationale on this aspect? thanks AptioMemoryFix.efi (external) vs OsxAptioFix3Drv.efi OsxAptioFixDrv.efi OsxLowMemFixDrv.efi
  2. so do you have the T460 and BCM card now!? I will probably get one for my son soon. his T420 is totally used - kids are not kind to their systems!

    are you using WhateverGreen.kext -- if so, maybe you can remove it to test. you definitely need to inject an EDID to match the LCD: your EDID shows ProductID 40A3 vs jenyunhuang is 40E2 - so these are 2 different models. @jenyunhuang do you have the eDP adapter too? that could be different? the 1st frame buffer for HD 3000 MBP8,1 is set to LVDS vs eDP?

    yeah AUO1 LCD is inferior to LG. to fix the strecthing thing - make sure you have DualLink=1

    @Bugfix you have hit the problem many (including me) have with HD 3000 on HighSierra (or Mojave) - are you using the config.plist injects a custom EDID? if not try the the "2e2" version. fix will help a lot but not 100% on HighSierra/Mojave. always worked for earlier OS. - the problem is more common on systems with AUO LCD and 4 or 8GB memory. - not common for LG LCDs and/or with more memory.

    @maple2018 included in the package, there is a dsdt and kext to help you with custom fan speed. replace your data.aml with dsdt.heat-step.aml (see details in the guide) and then add ACPIPoller.kext @goodguess hmm no idea why your sierra volume isnt mounting. i have Mojave, HighSierra, Sierra on my T420. @laziboi not sure what is going on... do you have any USB drives plugged in?

    FWIW: I used this tool to go from 10.14.4 to 10.14.5. http://dosdude1.com/mojave/ I created the USB installer (with my Clover bundle in ESP) and installed on top of 10.14.4. and then ran the Post Install Tool set to MBP8,1 from this USB Installer. Not entirely sure what all was changed - presumably it fixes the frameworks to allow HD 3000 to work!
  8. you can decide what parts of SIP to enable / disable - and create a value to suit your needs. the key items IMO 1) allow untrusted kexts 2) allow unapproved kexts Custom Disable SIP: 0x3C3 = 11 1100 0011 /* Rootless configuration flags */ #define CSR_ALLOW_UNTRUSTED_KEXTS (1 << 0) #define CSR_ALLOW_UNRESTRICTED_FS (1 << 1) #define CSR_ALLOW_TASK_FOR_PID (1 << 2) #define CSR_ALLOW_KERNEL_DEBUGGER (1 << 3) #define CSR_ALLOW_APPLE_INTERNAL (1 << 4) #define CSR_ALLOW_UNRESTRICTED_DTRACE (1 << 5) #define CSR_ALLOW_UNRESTRICTED_NVRAM (1 << 6) #define CSR_ALLOW_DEVICE_CONFIGURATION (1 << 7) #define CSR_ALLOW_ANY_RECOVERY_OS (1 << 8) #define CSR_ALLOW_UNAPPROVED_KEXTS (1 << 9)

    good idea ... get started with HighSierra. the support/implementation for Mojave is a bit more tricky. Better? depends on your metrics. Many (100s or 1000s), as I have since 2013, run macOS on T420/T420s. Dual or triple boot is popular too: macOS, Windows, Linux.

    what if you remove the battery? maybe the bios update will succeed? on screen size? I wonder if the size was not properly detected, set DualLink=1 (for 1600x900) good luck on the HD replacement - go with SSD. APFS is not very speedy on spinning disk.

    I just updated GitHub. well I would use config.mojave.1600x900.plist if I were you. but I would go with 10.14.3 at first unless you have the 10.14.3 frameworks saved off.

    Either way is fine. for me, i dont install kexts on my HD anymore. well except with Mojave I install the HD3000 kext in /S/L/E.

    hmm. I see confirmation of the issue but not sure I see real advice yes I dual boot macOS and Window10 on same disk. for me: MacOS/Clover updates/uses: /EFI/Clover/CloverX64.efi /EFI/BOOT/BootX64.efi (copy/dup of above) windows updates/uses /EFI/Microsoft/boot/bootmgfw.efi they seem to co-exist nicely my BIOS on either my Dell and Lenovo T420 bootlist have Clover as 1st option and Window Manager as 2nd option. I see that clover always gets picked during the boot up ( same for the update process) sometimes the install process boots up just fine and then Reboots. it is on this 2nd round of booting up the installer things get odd instead of selecting the macOS install entry (like the previous boot up) to continue the updating (presumable this is set in NVRAM to override the default macOS volume) - it uses the Windows boot option -- unless I intervene. all is fine if mv /EFI/Microsoft to /EFI/M before the update and then revert after. just a pain in the neck.

    Yup - i had to go with "--ext-co" vs (pre) to get a proper build with the expected UEFI drivers. question: i dont recall having this problem before Mojave, but unless I move my /ESP/EFI/Microsoft folder out of the way for an OS update, Clover wants to boot up microsoft in the middle of the update. meaning i download the update package. it creates the boot files in / (root) and then reboots and Clover picks Boot from MacOS Install or something like that. all seems right... I see the usual progress bar and sometimes i get a white flash, but then it reboots. But now instead of restarting with the macOS Install, Clover wants to boot up the Microsoft. so i have to manually pick the Install icon. However, if I rename the Microsoft folder to M, then macOS update works without issue. Is there a better location/name for the EFI/Microsoft folder so it doesnt confuse Clover during a macOS update?

    Clover can remove these Clover boot options. boot to clover and stop... and then move down to Clover boot options with arrow key and then it will be obvious.
