  1. Hi folks! I run El Capitan on VB by guide on this forum. Everything works great, but I'd like to do 2 more modifications and I'll be very thankful if you helped me... 1. Adding serials to SMBIOS The main reason I run virtualisation of OSX is that I want to code apps with Xcode - Xcode wants you tu sign in with your Apple ID to sign apps. I've read that in virtualisation, there are no serials/information in SMBIOS, so "Apple" device can't be verified, which outcome is you to unable to login. I found something about Clover and Clover Configurator. I even tried that, but there were just many errors and problem wasn't solved. Can someone give me step-by-step instructions how to do this? 2. Custom screen resolution I think this'll be simpler than 1. but I couldn't find any exact guide. I managed to change resolution by VBoxManage setextradata "El Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N, but I'd like to have 16:9 res (1920x1080). Is there any way to do it?

    El Capitan on AMD FX CPU?

    hi, how to install El Capitan on an AMD system? I found an AMD Kernel here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...pic/?p=2195566 but it already fails on install. My system: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 Legacy Boot AMD FX4300 16GB RAM GIGABYTE NVidia GTX 750 Ti El Capitan Installer on USB Drive, attatched to USB 2.0 Port, Clover Bootloader Booting installer with -v results in one line "+++++++++++++++++++++++", then rebooting without any message. Do i need the AMD kernel to run installer? I didn't know where to put the kernel on install media, as there is no /System/Library/Kernels on the installer media.
  3. Hi, guys. I’m facing a problem with a wifi/bluetooth combo card. I bought this PCI-e 1X adapter and a BCM943224PCIEBT2 (BCM43224) card, which is a common module on Macbook Air models from 2010 up to 2012. The items were bought separately, and when they both arrived I installed on a PCIe slot of my machine running OSX 10.11.5 (El Capitan) and connected the mandatory micro usb port of the module on a USB port on the back of my Gigabyte motherboard using the provided cable. The wifi is fully recognised and works effortlessly and though the bluetooth module is present on the Preferences Pane and on OSX menu bar, it simply doesn’t recognise my Magic Trackpad and Magic Keyboard (they both are recognised by my Macbook Pro). I tried to make it recognise something else (an AirTracks bluetooth headphone), but it was to no avail. Strangely, there is a unknown device which appears on the bluetooth panel which I have no idea what it is (it is not mine for sure, it could be from a neighbour or it simply could be an error, since it doesn’t recognise my Apple devices which are in front of it). This unknown device is shown with the Magic Mouse icon, but it doesn’t connect too and it is not shown on the Magic Mouse portion of the Pref Pane. I installed Sierra and Mavericks on a separate partition to verify if it was not simply an El Capitan issue, but it worked the same way on both: wifi fully working, bluetooth present on Preferences Panel, but nothing is recognised. I’m already providing the System Information screenshots showing the wifi, bluetooth and USB Hub info for you to check what is possibly wrong here. My setup is made of an Intel i7 4770 on a Gigabyte Z97M-D3H with 16Gb of ram (2x8 HyperX modules) and OSX installed on a SanDisk SDSSDA240G. I’m using Intel onboard graphics. Can you guys help solve this issue? Thanks a lot!
  4. Good day everyone! Ever since I installed OS X El Capitan on my machine, I've been getting a very odd problem where the Wi-Fi connectivity dies out after a random amount minutes of watching Netflix or YouTube. Once, it took two hours for this to happen, but the day after, it took two minutes. So far, the only way I've found to fix the problem is by restarting the router which takes a couple of minutes and disconnects the whole house. My wireless card is a TP-Link N900 which has worked without this error before. Also note, that I am a victim of the ATHR: unknown locale: 21 error, but I have applied the working fix. The machine is running OS X El Capitan 10.11.4, but I just updated and am testing the problem. Other than this problem, the machine is quite flawless in performance Computer Specifications - Intel Core i5-4440 - Corsair Vengeance (2)8GB 1600MHz RAM - EVGA GTX 970SC 4GB (running nVidia Web Drivers) - ASUS B85-E/CSM Motherboard - TP-Link N900 If you need it, here's the system report page under Wi-Fi: Software Versions: CoreWLAN: 11.0 (1101.20) CoreWLANKit: 11.0 (1101.20) Menu Extra: 11.0 (1102.32) System Information: 11.0 (1100.1) IO80211 Family: 11.0.1 (1101.24) Diagnostics: 5.0 (500.83) AirPort Utility: 6.3.6 (636.5) Interfaces: en0: Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x8F) Firmware Version: Atheros 9380: MAC Address: c4:6e:1f:1f:a5:36 Locale: ETSI Country Code: Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g/n Supported Channels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64 Wake On Wireless: Supported AirDrop: Supported Status: Connected Current Network Information: *connected wifi network*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 48:5d:36:3a:34:44 Channel: 1 Country Code: Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -67 dBm / -89 dBm Transmit Rate: 195 MCS Index: 22 Other Local Wi-Fi Networks: *wifi network name*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 5c:b9:01:2a:05:cc Channel: 1 Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -72 dBm / -96 dBm *wifi network name*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 6e:e8:f1:e0:9f:70 Channel: 11 Country Code: US Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -84 dBm / -96 dBm *wifi network name*: PHY Mode: 802.11n BSSID: 6c:70:9f:e0:f1:e8 Channel: 11 Country Code: US Network Type: Infrastructure Security: WPA2 Personal Signal / Noise: -80 dBm / -96 dBm

    Internal Mic CX20590

    Hello! I can't get my internal mic to work in a Lenovo G470 with CX20590 audio chipset. I used Mirone's AppleHDA Patcher to get speaker and both jacks working but this tricky mic won't do any good. I already calculated my codec verbs and pathmaps thinking it could be a specific problem from my laptop but they were the same as generated by patcher. Internal mic pathmap should be 20 - 23 - 26 as you can see in codec_dump with audio selector 24 and audio input 21 also associated but not used by the internal mic. Already tried different combinations to see if I managed to fix it. Instead, All I hear is some cracking noise output when recording and glitchy sound detection from sound pref panel. I already checked command verbs and tried both Patcher and mine. Both works for everything except Internal Mic. I have no clue what could be. Internal Mic is working as I just tried with VoodooHDA but I need HDMI Sound and VoodooHDA does not support my HD3000 Any help I would be grateful. my verb commands: 01971C10 01971D10 01971E21 01971F04 01A71C20 01A71D10 01A71EA0 01A71F95 01B71C30 01B71D10 01B71E81 01B71F04 01B70C02 01F71C40 01F71D01 01F71E17 01F71F90 Thank you! codec_dump.txt voodoo_dump.txt Platforms.xml
  6. Buongiorno a tutti. vorrei informazioni riguardo il mio PC. Pensate possa funzionare el capitan (o anche yosemite) sul mio Asus N53JQ? Ecco la configurazione: Processore: Intel Core i7 Q740 @ 1.73 GHz (turbo boost 2.9 GHz) HDD: 750GB (5400 rpm) Ram: 4GB Scheda video: Nvidia GEFORCE GT425M (1GB Dedicato) Chipset: Intel HM55 Scheda di rete wireless: Atheros AR9285 Scheda audio: Realtek High Definition Audio (credo sia questa) Con questa configurazione, che è quella attuale, ho provato yosemite con vmware e sembra funzionare e sono riuscito a smanettarci un pò. Nei prossimi giorni (sto aspettando che consegnino tutto ) apporterò delle modifiche e la nuova configurazione sarà questa: Processore: Intel Core i7 Q740 @ 1.73 GHz (turbo boost 2.9 GHz) SSD: Samsung 850 evo 500gb Ram: 12GB Scheda video: Nvidia GEFORCE GT425M (1GB Dedicato) Chipset: Intel HM55 Scheda di rete wireless: Atheros AR9285 Scheda audio: Realtek High Definition Audio (credo sia questa) La mia preoccupazione maggiore è la scheda video. Ad ogni modo sono aperto ad ogni tipo di critica o consiglio, sperando che alla fine si possa fare tutto. Vi ringrazio di mettere la vostra esperienza al servizio di un inesperto come me e per la vostra pazienza.

    Audio problem in ALC662

    I am new to hackintosh and after trying out every possible fix for making sound work in ALC662, I am not able to fix it. I am on el capitan 10.11. If anyone can give me a modified kext and tell me which way exactly should i follow to install it, then it would be great.
  9. Hi, I have a Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 with a Creative Sound Core 3D chip on it. I've installed VoodooHDA 2.8.8. I can control the sound volume, but i don't get any sound on the front headphone jack, rear line output or rear headphone jack. What info can i provide so someone could help me? Thank you.
  10. Hey all, I recently got my hackintosh working on this setup: Asus x99 Deluxe II 5930k GTX 780 Ti I learned a TON of information from "the other forum." Specifically a user wrote a great guide for setting up a similar motherboard, an Asus X99 Rampage V Extreme. I thank him so much for writing that up! I had tried countless guides for both 10.11 and 10.10 before his. Not sure if these scores are good or bad - do the attached HWMonitor look ok? Geekbench Scores 64-bit -- Single 3641 -- Multi 20796 32-bit -- Single 3300 -- Multi 18864 Cinebench R15 OpenGL -- 110.88 CPU -- 1037 cb (watching that render is beautiful) I did not use a USB stick to boot from for the initial install. I used the SSD that would eventually go into the hackintosh and mounted it to my MacBook Pro with a SATA to USB3 converter. Once it was mounted I went to my applications folder and and ran Install OS X El Capitan.app. I set the target drive as the USB mounted SSD. Set up went through its process and within 30 minutes my MacBook Pro was able to boot from the USB mounted SSD. Once booted from the USB mounted SSD while on my MacBook Pro, I used a USB stick to transfer the following applications to the SSD - Clover Configurator, EFI Mounter v3, IORegistryExplorer, KCPM Utility Pro, Kext Utility, ShowHiddenFiles. All of these were needed at some point to follow the guide. I currently have completed: Bootloader and NVRAM Fundamental kexts Create SSDT and DSDT Enable Graphics Hardware Acceleration for unsupported nVIDIA GPU​ So far here are some things that work: Sound output from speakers in DisplayPort monitor Audio over DisplayPort works after sleep GTX 780 Ti with nvda_dvr=1 and "NVIDIA Web Driver" as opposed to OS X Default USB 2.0 WiFi mostly works, but sometimes it slows down to 28.8k speeds And some things that don't work: GTX 780 Ti fans always at 100% speed, wow that is loud HWMonitor shows the GPU clock rates at 324 MHz core and 648 Mhz, reference speeds are 837/1502 And things I don't know about yet, still need to set up and install - Am I missing any thing here? - first hack Ethernet - my board has both the Intel I218V and I211-AT controllers according to the Asus spec page. This is a desktop obviously, so I really need to get this working USB 3.0 USB 3.1 via Asus add in card, seen a few guides but this is low priority Need to confirm that all P and C states for the 5930k work correctly, unsure how to accomplish Analog audio out both front and back panels So far I think my first hack has gone well, or maybe I am just lucky!
  11. Hi My system is a dell optiplex 980 with an i5 and it runs 10.10 really well - I use chameleon as the bootloader and i have tried many steps to get 10.11 going but the installer will never go past 'Still waiting for root device.'I am pretty convinced this old motherboard is USB2 based and from my reading it seems this error is likely to be USB related but i cant figure out how to proceed. I am using a USB installer with enoch chameleon to boot this. I do not use a DSDT and in 10.10 all hardware appears to work pretty natively. Any clues to help me proceed?
  12. Hi All, I've got my Hack working beautifully with the following setup: ASRock X99 Extreme4 i7-5820k GTX 750Ti Clover 2.3 r3333 OSX 10.11.3 NVidia web driver 346.03.05f01 It works *really* well. Got audio (both HDMI/DP and ALC1150), got power states, got turbo, got USB, probably have other things working I've forgotten about. But no sleep/wake. To be specific, sleep appears to work. It takes maybe 20 seconds but the real Mac right next to it takes almost as long. Power consumption drops to ~3W at that point. Wake is where it all goes wrong. System will wake via keyboard or mouse click (and I think by power button). However within a second, I hear a "click" that's generally associated with a full reset, and the system proceeds to reboot. All of this happens in the dark -- nothing bothers to turn on the display until the OS has finished loading. A very few times (and maybe none since swapping monitors from DVI to DP - unrelated to this) I've gotten some visible output before the reboot. Sample attached here. One more note; this same hardware handles sleep/wake flawlessly under Linux and Windows 10. I've done tons of searching (and found a few similar issues but none on X99) and tried numerous Clover settings and some DSDT tweaks but without any luck. It does seem like a DSDT issue but to be honest, that's just a hunch. Any suggestions of what to try next would be most appreciated. It's so close to "perfect" that I'm kind of obsessed with having sleep/wake working. Oh, if anyone else is trying to make progress with an X99 Extreme4, I'm happy to share what's worked for me. There don't seem to be a lot of folks trying to run OSX on this board. Cheers, Allen
  13. I know this is kind of broad, but if I build a workstation that's well supported on High Sierra now, how likely is it to still work well with the next major OSx release next fall? If you had to guess, what % chance do I have of encountering major issues when trying to update next fall? The kinds of issues that would seriously interfere with my day to day work of photo and video editing? For example, kext/kernel panics (is that even a thing still?) or major pieces of hardware suddenly not being supported, and so on... Has migrating your Hackintosh to the latest release has gotten easier in recent years? So for those of you who have been making builds for a while, is going from Sierra to High Sierra causing you fewer problems than Mavericks --> Yosemite for example or Yosemite --> El Capitan etc? Sorry if this is a bit broad and ignorant, but I've been away from the forums for quite a while and just trying to get a sense of how "stable" and "future-proof" Hackintoshes are these days - compared to Apple's own desktops ... I'm OK not updating incrementally ie v13.1 to v13.2 if I need to, but I'm worried about having to start completely from scratch with each new main version.
  14. Hi everybody, After fresh updated my hackintosh system (old fashioned...) i get some troubles with the power management. Sometime after sleeping the system won't boot on OS X. I recently installed El Capitan original with my USB key and the app dowloaded on the app store without any tool just burned it on the USB drive with disk utility. Sometime booting after sleeping works very well and sometimes not at all. I was thinking about an incompatibility with my specs. But not sure and thought it was because of the AppleIntelACPI Power Management kext. My BIOS is configurated with S3 sleep only and i use a little Overclock on it : 2,80Ghz RAM at 800mhz to ~3,4Ghz RAM 1100Mhz. I have no problem with Windows 7, 8.1, 10. It's only on Mac OS X. Is anyone can help me, please My specs are : Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2,80Ghz OC 3,40Ghz MB : ASUS P5QL-E bios last updated RAM : 4*1GB RAM Corsair 800Mhz OC 1100Mhz SSD : Sandisk Ultra II 128Go SATA 3GB HDD : 2*500GB raid Seagate 2,5" GPU : Asus GT630 4BG DDR3 PSU : LEPA 80Plus Bronze 550W Thank you to all the community for all your help. And sorry for my english if is there any mistakes in my post. I'm a fu***** frenchie
  15. Hi, Im having some trouble installing El Capitan on my mackintosh.

  16. Newb here, but here we go, need some help from guys who know what they are doing. Trying to install El Capitan on my first ever "Hackintosh" Specs are: ASUS Maximus VII Formula Z97, Intel Core i7-4790k, 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws RAM, MSI Lightning GTX 770 2GB, 1050 Watt EVGA GS PSU, NZXT H440 Case I have made a USB Drive with Terminal (createinstallmedia) of El Capitan on an 8GB Flash Drive which was SUCCESSFUL. I am prepared to install Clover Bootloader but am overwhelmed by the options. Can anyone give me any advice on what options to select under "Customize" for my specific build? I heard I need a DSDT.aml file? How do I make one of those for my build? Also, based on my specs, what kexts and Boot Args would you guys recommend to help me get to the installer and post install? Thanks for the consideration.
  17. Dear experts, I'm new to the mac world however have been using Mountain Lion in a VM (downloaded online). Right now, I want to install El Capitan in a VM on Workstation 11. What I have right now, Hardware :- - Dell Vostro 2420 running Win8.1 64 bit. - Intel core i5 3230M - 4 GB DDR3 RAM - Intel B75 express chipset - Intel HD4000 graphics - 500 GB WD HDD Software :- - Working Mountain Lion VM - El Capitan dmg/iso file downloaded from Mountain Lion. - El Capitan Bootable USB created from Mountain Lion - VMware Workstation 11 / 12. Could anyone help me on how to install El Capitan on, - VMware Workstation - On Dell Vostro 2420 laptop So far I've tried to search lot many forums, but what is see is that they use the pre-configured vm image in the videos. While I tried to use ISO image and boot, it shows a STOP/restricted sign. Tried adding setting like smc.version = "0" and disabling sound but to no avail. Greatly appreciate any help on this... Thanks.
  18. UPDATE: Managed to make Apple Store work for the first time ever! I installed IntelMausiEthernet.kext first so it can be assigned to "en0", then I installed my USB WIFI dongle(Brand: Netis. Chipset: Realtek RTL8192CU8). Tried to patch AppleHDA.kext for my ALC892. I can see 4 outputs and 2 input. Only one input works. Everything else doesn't work. I'm still working on it. Hello, everyone! For those who were having problems installing OS X El Capitan on X99A SLI Plus with Core i7 5820K Haswell-E, here's how I fixed it: First of all, I used the RAW USB image from this link: (thepiratebay is down at the moment, just go to thepiratebay.com and it will redirect to the current domain they're using, then type 'el capitan intel pcs' and download the most seeded file you find at the top of the results.) The thing about this image is that it can be installed via Windows using Win32 Disk Imager, for those who want to install OS X for the first time or their OS X got damaged and it cannot be recovered. I used a version of FakeSMC.kext(see attachments) I found by chance, and I replaced the other FakeSMC.kext stored in the USB EFI partition via Windows. (EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/10.11/) In addition to that, I removed Voodoo PS2 controller kext--just to be safe--because I've been having KPs because of it since 2009 on OS X Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard. For boot args, I used: -v npci=0x2000 I also enabled Haswell-E patch. If I don't replace FakeSMC.kext with the one attached, I get a KP concerning CPUSensors.kext plugin which can be found inside FakeSMC.kext. I hope this helps. (Posting this from OS X El Capitan) FakeSMC.kext.zip
  19. Hi everyone, I have 3 working OS X's on my ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS Dual Xeon build. That is: ElCapitan & Sierra (both working flawlessly apart from audio, but HDA works, so thats fine) and now recently I installed Yosemite (bit laggy and sometimes hangs during boot with an IOUSBFamily error of BUS 14 already in use??). All three work with Clover however, which is great as they're all on a single drive. The reason I installed Yosemite is because I bought a fusionIO card, for which the driver support stopped at Yosemite. In ElCapitan I get unresolved symbols/dependencies errors and the driver wouldn't load. I (and even SanDisk themselves) don't know if they will be supporting ElCapitan and later OS's, which is annoying. I know source code is available from SanDisk but I am not sure how much the source code needs changing before it can be recompiled for the 15.0 Darwin/XNU Kernel if this is at all possible? I am by no means a rootkit developer, so I wouldn't know if this is even a feasible route/starting point? If this is somehow possible it would mean I can ditch Yosemite again, which would be great as it runs laggy and Ethernet seems to be recognised but doesn't connect with self-assigned IP, so would be better if I could make it work on my smooth OS's (i.e. ElCapitan and later). If the above is too complicated or not possible at all without putting in some serious work and having an advanced techy brain...Is there a way to make it work on Yosemite? Do I need to come up with a custom injector kext and use FakePCIID to get the card recognised properly? Any help with this would be much appreciated. Thanks guys! And thanks for this great Forum!
  20. Does anyone have an idea of how to get audio working for El Capitan on a Gigabyte ga-g31m-es2l rev. 1.1 . Sound has been working on this board since snow leopard, but I can not quite figure out what the problem is now?
  21. Hello Everyone, I'm new to hackintoshing, I have set my hackintosh up clearly in my Sony Vaio SFV15219SA as I've seen that the native Bluetooth and WIFI aren't going to work. So I bought a USB Wifi TP-LINK WN727N V4 with Chipset MTK7610U (RT2860) but I couldn't make it work. Methods I've come up with are : -BearExtender but wirelessutility is not showing after keeping on clicking. -installing a RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext using kext wizard or kext utility -Dlink DWA 140 Wireless utility is not showing any driver -Edited the info.plist of the Kext file to get my vendor ID and hardware id to work but with no luck. Any help here? rather than that the whole OS is working perfectly.

    mac pro geforce 8800 GTS

    Been a while since me and a pal managed to turn a couple of dell mini 9s into leopard netbooks and then kill them with 10.5.8 and thus it's so good to see there is still a thriving community here ... hoping you can help me Does anyone know if your group's nvidia webdriver updater will successfully flash the ROM in the non-approved (by Apple!) 8800 GTS (the GT was approved, but not the GTS) - so it will work in a mac pro 3,1 with El Capitan ? (by 'work' I mean 100% fully work - not just login screen but all boot screen options) May seem an odd thing to do but amongst my other projects keeping this behemoth (3,1 intel xeon 8 core 8GB RAM 2008/9) mac pro with bootcamp running as something more than just a home NAS (4x4TB drives in the bays) and file server is high up my list and I am never going to be able to stump up the cash for an apple $$$ approved card Things I think I know, but suspect some folk here will have found a way around or know better; 1) without flashing, I will never get the options at boot, or be able to see SUDO or recovery options 2) I can use screen sharing / VNC viewer / Vine to remote into the mac at the login screen, and use startup disk prefs to switch between bootcamp and OSX, but not OSX DVDs on an external DVD over USB 3) I have been pointed at netkas but they seem to be down currently ... and when last up appear to be focused on flashing just the high end newer PC gaming cards (1GB VRAM and up) - this 8800 GTS is just a 320mb) Any info will be much appreciated, hate binning kit like this .... cheers Andy
  23. I got the install working, but the wifi, touchpad, and built-in keyboard doesn't work. The sound, optical drive, and usb work fine. P.S. The Logitech M325c mouse works in El Capitan. I attached a file listing my hardware specs below. hardware specs.txt
  24. I have a working Niresh Yosemite 10.10.5 install on my PC with Clover UEFI as the bootloader. I'd like to update it to El Capitan if possible. I've tried to do it through the Install El Capitan update app as I heard that it works as long as you have Clover. The program worked fine but when I try to boot into the Installer through Clover, I get the black Apple screen (without loading bar) followed by a black screen with a circle and a slash through it. I booted in verbose and got a message saying something about it not being able to boot. Any suggestions or other ways to upgrade to El Capitan?

  25. Hi everyone, I managed to create a Clover Legacy UEFI bootloader USB key with a patched DSDT and SSDT. It seems to be running just fine right now (as I am typing this). On the actual system volume, I am booting with Chameleon, so I am using the USB to test. I have the system running on a 2302 Patched Bios, and power management seems to be working as far as the Intel Power Gadget is showing me. Essentially, everything is working except for audio (no need, I have a wireless USB headset I use for that anyways). I am having trouble trying to get it to work with just a UEFI bootloader, and not a legacy one. I would like to go to full UEFI mode if possible to streamline future updates and whatnot, and just to generally have a cleaner more vanilla install of the entire system. Anyways. Whenever I boot using the Legacy USB i get a "boot" message, then it shows "5" (that is the resolution profile it is selecting), and then it says "welcome to clover" and proceeds to show the disk launcher screen where I can select my volume to boot from. Whenever I boot using the UEFI USB i get no message at all, it goes straight to a black screen with a FLASHING cursor on the top left. I proceeded to copy CLOVERX64.EFI to the root of the EFI volume and rename it to SHELLX64.EFI as instructed by some guides on this specific mobo. When booting using that, I get a black screen with a SOLID cursor on the top left (and what seems like an odd resolution that it is being displayed at, as well). It never progresses from that point, and does not show the volume selection menu. I was wondering if it is at all possible to get the Asus P8P67 Deluxe Rev B3.0 @ 2302 patched bios (confirmed patched bios is working) with UEFI only. The 2302 bios does not have CSM or any option to do UEFI/Legacy Hybrid or UEFI only booting- so I cannot turn those off/change them.
