  2. Hi all! I recently updated my Yosemite to the latest release but I noticed one things to fix: my audio works if I'm using the laptop's subwoofer, otherwise if I connect devices to the 3,5mm jack, it continues to come off the laptop instead of earphones/headphones. This is was happens if I use power supply without battery connected to the laptop. When I connect my battery to the laptop, headphones start to work, and they continue to work even if I remove the battery, which seems to be nothing but an injector. If I reboot the computer, without battery connected, again: subwoofers work regardless of whether headset are connected or not. When I was under Yosemite 10.10.2 or 10.10.4 the same thing happened, with the difference that just after the first time that I connected the battery, headphones started to work also without battery and also after reboot. Not only, just after update I removed audio kext (from terminal with "sudo su" "rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/KextName.kext") and I rebooted the OS. At login I noticed that audio was working, but soon after Yosemite installation without the kext I use audio was off! So my suspicion is that 10.10.5 update has modified something but honestly I don't know what.. Here I've attached also my audio kext. Thanks in advance to everyone who'll help me!

  3. Installation Guide : Hey there and welcome to the ultimate guide how to install Yosemite (10.10) or El Capitan (10.11) on the Lenovo ThinkPad "T410". Before you begin make sure that you are owning the NVIDIA model. (NVS 3100m 256mb / NVS 3100m 512mb) This guide may work for other models like T510, T410s or the T410 with Intel HD but theres no support for them. NO ONE IN THIS FORUM (INCLUDING ME) IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS (DATA, MATERIAL, EQUIPMENT…) OCCURRED TO YOU, YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE RESPONSIBLE, AND BY FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS YOU AGREE TO TAKE ALL THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. THIS INSTALLATION ISN'T WITHOUT RISKS SO TAKE ALL THE PRECAUTIONS BEFORE DOING ANY FOOLISH ACTION, BACKUP YOUR DATA! AND FEED YOUR CAT! Photos here are only examples, use your brain! First of all you should know the basics of hackintoshing. (GIYF) You will need Windows on your T410 for the WIFI patch and a working Mac / Hackintosh (running 10.6.8+) to prepare the installation media. Also a 8GB+ USB drive. El Capitan (10.11): Yosemite (10.10):
  4. Installazione di Yosemite (OS X 10.10) su ASUS K550JK Archivio con i files: http://www.dropbox.com/s/l9041u18x4wizan/ASUS%20K550JK.zip?dl=1 1.Preparazione chiavetta 2.Preparazione BIOS 3.Installazione 4.Perfezionamento Cosa funziona: · Touchpad ora completo (23/03/15) · Schermo a risoluzione 1366x768x32 e controllo luminosità · Porte USB · WiFi e Bluetooth (cambiando scheda – Atheros AR5B195) · Power Management · Dual boot Win 8.1 – MAC OS X · Tastiera PS2 Integrata · Webcam · Statistiche Batteria · AppStore e iCloud Cosa NON funziona: · Lettore schede SD (per ora) · WiFi e Bluetooth integrati (Broadcom 943142) · Scheda NVIDIA GeForce 850M (Optimus) · iMessage e FaceTime PREPARAZIONE CHIAVETTA Per preparare la chiavetta contenente l’installazione di OS X Yosemite avremmo bisogno di: 1. OS X YOSEMITE (installer originale) 2. Chiavetta da 8GB o più 3. Cartella “ASUS K550JK” scaricabile dal link in sottotitolo Prepariamo ora la chiavetta in ambiente Mac: 1. Lanciamo l’app “ShowAllFiles” contenuta in /Utility Programs/ e clicchiamo su SHOW 2. Montiamo lìimmagine di installazione del sistema, andiamo in /Contents/SharedSupport/ e apriamo InstallESD.dmg 3. Al suo interno troveremo BaseSystem.dmg, apriamolo 4. In Utility Disco posizioniamoci sul volume della chiavetta USB e partizioniamo nel seguente modo 5. Ripristiniamo poi il contenuto dell’immagine disco BaseSystem nella partizione appena creata della chiavetta USB in questo modo 6. Copiamo i file contenuti in /kexts/system/ nella cartella /System/Library/Extensions della chiavetta. 7. Copiamo la cartella Packages contenuta in InstallESD.dmg nella cartella /System/Installation della chiavetta, ma solo dopo aver eliminato il link chiamato Packages al suo interno 8. Lanciamo ora il programma “Clover_v2k_r3050” contenuto in /Utility Programs/ e installiamolo nella chievetta USB facendo attenzione a cliccare su ad Hoc e a spuntare l’opzione “INSTALLAZIONE SOLO PER AVVIO IN UEFI” senza preoccuparci delle altre configurazioni infatti nel prossimo passaggio copieremo la cartella contenente le informazioni di configurazione di clover 9. Copiamo la cartella CLOVER scompattando /CLOVER.zip nella cartella EFI della partizione EFI della chiavetta USB, dopo aver eliminato quella già presente, che dovrebbe risultare già montata in seguito all’installazione di clover compiuta al passaggio 8 10. Apriamo il programma Clover Configurator contenuto nella cartella /Utility Programs/ e clicchiamo FILE > Import Configuration scegliendo il file contenuto in EFI>CLOVER>config.plist 11. Nella scheda SMBIOS clicchiamo su questo tasto e selezioniamo dai modelli dei MacBook Pro l’ultimo, l’11,2 in questo modo, premiamo i due shake a destra e poi ok 12. A questo punto salviamo cliccando su FILE>EXPORT CONFIGURATION 13. A questo punto la chiavetta è pronta PREPARAZIONE BIOS Entriamo nel bios e settiamolo come in foto, notando bene che nella sezione SATA sia impostato su AHCI e che su Network sia disabled, dopodichè premiamo F10 per salvare le modifiche e riavviare INSTALLAZIONE Avviamo da chiavetta premendo ESC ripetutamente all’avvio del computer e selezioniamo dalle varie opzioni di clover quella chiamata OS X BASE SYSTEM, se tutto va bene si aprirà la schermata di installazione, da cui selezioniamo italiano, accettiamo il contratto e poi andiamo su Utility Disco, dal menù a tendina, e creiamo la partizione in cui installare OS X nel nostro HARD DISK, facendo attenzione a partizionare in GUID e formattare in formato MAC OS X ESTESO (JOURNALED). Terminata l’installazione il computer si riavvierà, avviamolo come in precedenza dalla chiavetta selezionando sempre OS X BASE SYSTEM e tornando così nuovamente nel programma di installazione, ovviamente non formattiamo e non reinstalliamo, copiamo invece alcuni driver. Dallo stesso menù che contiene Utility Disco, apriamo Terminale Digitiamo: 1.cp –r /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions/HoRNDIS.kext /Volumes/nome partizione su cui è stato installato os x/System/Library/Extensions 2.cp –r /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions/RealtekRTL8111.kext/Volumes/nome partizione su cui è stato installato os x/System/Library/Extensions 3.cp –r /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions/GenericUSBXHCI.kext /Volumes/nome partizione su cui è stato installato os x/System/Library/Extensions Il primo serve per poter usare la connessione a internet o al wifi del proprio telefono Android con os x, semplicemnte cliccando su tethering usb dal telefono, il secondo per i driver della scheda ethernet (fondamentali anche se non la usate), il terzo per ovviare al problema delle porte usb non funzionanti dopo la ripreso dallo stand-by. Chiudiamo tutto e riavviamo, l’installazione è completata. PERFEZIONAMENTO Per rendere il nostro sistema autonomo dobbiamo installare il bootloader clover nell’hard disk. 1. Avviamo da usb ma questa volta nella schermata di clover avviamo l’opzione che porta il nome della partizione in cui abbiamo installato Yosemite. 2. Effettuiamo tutte le operazioni necessarie al primo avvio 3. Una volta dentro installiamo clover come al passaggio 8 della preparazione chiavetta, ma installandolo sull’hard disk 4. Montiamo la partizione EFI della chiavetta usando Clover Configurator in questo modo 5. Facendo attenzione a copiare la cartella dalla chiavetta copiamo la cartella EFI>CLOVER nello stesso indentico percorso presente invece nell’Hard disk. 6. A questo punto il sistema dovrebbe essere attivo e funzionante, installiamo però Voodoo HDA contenuto nella cartella /Utility Programs/ per avere l’audio funzionante, poi riavviamo. 7. Apriamo la cartella /Graphics/ dove troveremo un file di una pagina web con la guida per come abilitare la grafica. Nel nostro caso basta applicare questi codici nel terminale: 7a. sudo perl -i.bak -pe 's|\x3d\x86\x80\x12\x04\x74\x10\xeb\x5d|\x3d\x86\x80\x16\x04\x74\x10\xeb\x5d|g' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelHD5000Graphics 7b. sudo perl -i.bak -pe 's|\x3d\x86\x80\x12\x04|\x3d\x86\x80\x16\x04|g' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelFramebufferAzul 7c. sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions 7d. sudo perl -i.bak -pe 's|([\xFF\xFC\x3D])\x86\x80\x12\x04|$1\x86\x80\x16\x04|sg' /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenCL.framework/Libraries/libCLVMIGILPlugin.dylib 7e. sudo codesign -f -s - /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenCL.framework/Libraries/libCLVMIGILPlugin.dylib Se dovesse esserci qualche errore commentate il post.

  5. I have an ASUS GTX 750 Ti PH Series 2GB DDR5 (ASUS GTX750TI-PH-2GD5) with VBIOS (or VBIOS 82.07.25.AS11). I have tried this card out on both Yosemite 10.10 and 10.10.1 with NVIDIA Web Drivers 343.01.01f01 through f03 and 343.02.01f01. I have 1xHDMI port, 2xDVI-D Dual Link and 1xVGA ports on the card. I have 1xHDMI and 1xVGA ports on my monitor Dell S2440L. The card is installed correctly and is detected in System Report > Graphics/Displays and even in NVIDIA Driver Manager's ECC tab (of course, ECC not supported though). While I have all ports functional in Windows and for my gaming needs, I'm not able to get any port to work with Yosemite. I get a blank screen with a 'No Signal' message on the HDMI and both the DVI ports with Yosemite, after the Apple logo boot screen or after NVIDIA Drivers have been loaded in verbose boot. I have tried 3 different HDMI cables and even a DVI2HDMI adapter. Apparently, VGA works on this card for a lot of people but I haven't been able to try it out. I have tried PCIRootUID=1 as one of the bootflags, as suggested in other solved threads in this forum for the ASUS GTX 750 Ti, but I get the same result. (i.e. No Signal). I have tried PCIRootUID=0, GraphisEnabler=No/Yes and all other sorts of boot flag permutations and combinations but NOTHING. My hackintosh works fine with the on-board Intel HD 4600 (1536MB VRAM) graphics (Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H, supported as per the HCL). From my extensive discussions on other forums, I have gathered that this problem is not faced by cards sold by other vendors such as Palit, Gigabyte, EVGA, MSI - if any problems have been faced by these cards, they have been solved/fixed. The problem is mainly limited to ASUS cards, the ASUS Strix OC card with VBIOS being the only exception which has even the HDMI port working. toleda analysed a bunch of IOREGs for us folks stuck with non-functioning GTX 750 Ti cards and he's ruled out any issue with the NVCAP or the framebuffers. The problem seems to be only with the ASUS VBIOS for every ASUS card except the ASUS Strix OC. Some people who have flashed the ASUS Strix OC VBIOS on their non-functioning cards have reported success in getting all the ports working. I personally am skeptical since the cards that have been experimented with as well as the ASUS Strix OC are bigger cards with two fans, while mine is smaller card with a single fan. I'm not sure if it'll be safe to flash my card with the ASUS Strix OC VBIOS because it obviously has a very different component layout/structure. I'm really at my wit's end and I would appreciate any inputs whatsoever. I'm attaching my card's VBIOS in case somebody can disassemble/analyse it to figure out exactly what is different between that VBIOS and the one on the ASUS Strix OC 750 Ti which can be found here. I have also attached my IOREG, NVCAP screenshots and a GPU-Z screenshot comparison of my card to an NVIDIA Reference 750 Ti. Can't the NVIDIA kexts be somehow edited to help recognise the non-functioning ports on these problematic ASUS cards & their baffling VBIOS? If you require me to provide any more information pertaining to my case, ask away; I'll upload ASAP. Any insight is appreciated? Help me solve this puzzle.

  7. Downloaded theme called Yosemite and put it in extra/themes/ and changed the resolution. And in org.chameleon.boot.plist <key>Theme</key> <string>Yosemite</string> But chameleon still displays the black and white prompt!
  8. Hola a todos, he intentado instalar por activa y por pasiva Yosemite, y solamente consigo KP en el disco de instalación, ni siquiera puedo arrancar la utilidad, estoy a punto de desistir y quedarme con Maveriks que me funciona bien, pero quisiera poder usar algunas funcionalidades de 10.10, como Xcode actualizado, migrar a fotos desde iphoto, etc.... Antes que nada os pongo la configuracion actua de mis sistema: Placa base Asus P5B-SE Procesador Intel Core2 Quad 6600 Memoria 8Gb DDR2 800mhz Gráfica Nvidia GTX260 Varios discos duros uno de ellos SSD No encuentro un tutorial que me indique como instalar Yosemite, desde Leopard, siempre usaba istaladores, hasta que conocí chameleon, despues utilicé myhack para instalar maveriks, alguna manita que me echaron con el dsdt.aml , SMbios.plist, etc...., pero cero que a partir de 10.10 cambia todo este tema, al parecer el bootloader a usar es clover, que es algo mas avanzado y según algunos post que he leído maravilloso. Pues ahí me pierdo, no se usar Clover, no entiendo el arranque. Hasta ahora en uno de mis discos duros creaba dos particiones, una de 8gb la cual usaba a modo de instalador (a modo de USBinstaller) y la otra donde instalaba osx, después con CCC pasaba al SSD todo el sistema. Por favor iluminarme un poco, Adjunto foto de uno de los kp que suelta el usb de instalación al intentar arrancar (el usb de instalación está hecho con diskmaker +chameleon tal y como explicaba el maestro Derty en uno de los post de este mismo foro http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/301588-crear-instalador-yosemite-usb/). Gracias.

    AMD Installer for 10.7.x, 10.8.x, 10.9.x, 10.10.x and 10.11.x All credits for the kernel goes to the AMD Development team of Andy Vandijck, Bronya, Sinetek and Tora Chi Yo. Packaged with the latest kernels and some needed kexts. This package makes it easier for AMD users to install the latest kernels and some fixes for their systems.
  15. Hey guys, This is a tutorial on how to fix (or at least try to fix) the second stage boot, when you're having these issues: missing logo and loading bar being displayed on the bottom left corner of the screen. Might or might not work for other issues. So proceed with caution. This is an issue that I experienced starting with early stages of development in Yosemite. Still continued in El Capitan. So this thread is primarily for these two versions of Mac OS X. Not sure it will work on earlier versions, cause I never tried it. So far it worked in Yosemite, El Capitan and Sierra. Please, note that I did not test this on all video cards. So it might or might not work, depending on that. Don't take this as a final solution for everything. Also, I'm pretty sure this won't work with iGPUs. So I would strongly suggest to look around for solutions if that's your case. This tutorial is not for multiple display setups! Please, don't use it for that! Especially not in iGPU + dedicated GPU combos. Known issue: if you're using the auto-login feature, try to disable it and use the regular login screen. Otherwise you won't get the second stage boot (confirmed as fixed in Sierra). This tutorial would have not been possible without the help and insight of: Pike R. Alpha cecekpawon Mirone Riley Freeman So all the credit goes to them. I just put this together based on my successes and failures. Succesfully tested with: NVidia cards: GeForce 210 GT 640 GTX 650 GTX 660 GTX 670 Superclocked+ 4GB - works partially (ok for 1080p, with CSM disabled, but no second stage in higher resolutions) GTX 750 Ti - works partially (ok for 1080p, but no Apple logo for second stage in higher resolutions) GTX 760 GTX 780 GTX 960 GTX 970 - works partially (ok for 1080p, and 1440p with CSM disabled, but no second stage in higher resolutions) ATI cards: Sapphire Toxic R9 270X Might work on other graphic cards, as well. But these are the ones that worked so far. Please, share if you got good results with another video card. Also, the same thing can be achieved by modding your DSDT. Unfortunately this thread does not make the object of that method, nor am I able to help you with that, since I really have no idea how to mod a DSDT, so far. Also, to be honest, this method seems a bit easier. Nonetheless, try this at your own risk! I'm not responsible for any damage that you might cause to your computer/components etc. Also, please, note that this tutorial is not perfect. I'm doing my best to make it as easy to understand as possible. Also, I'm opened to suggestions and I'm doing my best to improve this in the future. Still, it's not perfect. So keep that in mind. Suggestions are appreciated though. Please, note that, if you've got a video card with GOP UEFI Bios, you most likely don't need this tutorial in the first place. All you need is to disable CSM in BIOS (motherboard dependent). Note that, by doing this, only GPT drives will be loaded. So if you've got Windows installed on another drive, for example, you won't be able to select it anymore, if it's installed in "legacy" mode. With that being said, let's get to work. Prerequisites: Mandatory: a computer running Mac OS X Yosemite or newer Clover bootloader (changes are gonna be saved to the config.plist file) IORegistryExplorer v 2.1 (attached) gfxutil (attached) gfx_hex (attached) - script credit to cecekpawon Optional: Sublime Text Editor Clover Configurator a Windows PC for reading the graphic card's VBios version. So far, I couldn't find a way to do it from OS X. But if you know how to do it, please, share. I'll update this accordingly. An alternative (though not really the same thing) is this. an USB installer might come in handy, so keep one close by. Extra: If you want to try the modded Bootx64.efi (rev 3279), thanks to cecekpawon, featuring an option to easily enable/disable string injection in Clover (in case you're stuck outside your OS, and don't have a USB drive or something else to boot from), click here to get it. Please, note that this revision might not work with newer versions of OS X/macOS. You will need to replace the one in your EFI/EFI/CLOVER folder. If you want to revert to the previous one, you can either reinstall Clover, or make a backup of your current one before replacing it. I would recommend creating a single folder with all the necessary files and tools and putting it on your Desktop, just to have all the needed things in one place. Note: If you use a custom SSDT/DSDT, I would try first without it, and using Clover's patches instead, so that you minimize the risk for failure due to custom DSDTs. I don't use a custom DSDT, didn't test in collaboration with a custom DSDT, so I don't know if it will work. If you wanna try it this way, I would love to know your results. What to do: Step 1 (establishing the port): Open up your IOreg file (or just open IORegistryExplorer if you don't want to save it as a separate file), and search for "display". You should see something like this: Now, depending on your card, you might have more or less ports. The important thing is to note the one that has the AppleDisplay attached to it. In this example, the second port (B@1) is the one in use. So that's the one we need to set as default. Please, note that they start at 0, so first port is A@0, the second one is B@1 and so on so forth. Step 2 (extracting device-properties.hex): Open up a terminal window, navigate to the desktop folder you're using, and do this (make sure gfxutil is present into that folder): ioreg -lw0 -p IODeviceTree -n efi -r -x | grep device-properties | sed 's/.*<//;s/>.*//;' > "device-properties.hex" && ./gfxutil -s -n -i hex -o xml "device-properties.hex" "device-properties.xml" This will extract two new files into that folder: device-properties.hex and device-properties.xml Step 3 (modding the device-properties.xml): Open up the xml file using any text editor (I'm gonna use Sublime here) and ADD the number of ports you need for your card (the same number of ports, with the same name as in the IOreg) and the rest of the information, as described in the example below (use the attached xml as reference): Don't forget that the first port is port 0! In this example, we're using an MSi GTX 650 OC with 2GB of RAM, which has 3 ports, and we want to set as default port #2 (B@1). Attached you can find my device-properties.xml file, if you wanna use it as reference. The first section will set port B@1 as default. Change this according to your case. <!-- Primary display --> <key>@1,AAPL,boot-display</key> <string>0x00000001</string> Whereas on the bottom you can see regular values. Here we can set the amount of VRAM, the name of the card and the VBios version. <key>VRAM,totalMB</key> <string>0x00000800</string> // for 2048 MB or 2 GB of RAM <key>device_type</key> <string>NVDA,Parent</string> <key>model</key> <string>MSi GeForce GTX 650</string> // Name of your card <key>rom-revision</key> <string></string> //VBIOS version In my experience, these values are rather cosmetic than anything else. For an accurate version of your VBios, you can use either the Nvidia driver on Windows, or any hardware information software like GPU-Z, aida64 or nvflash. Here's a little table with hex values for different amounts of RAM. If you need other values than the ones specified in this table, please, ask. Also, if you spot a mistake, let me know so I can correct it. Amount of memory Hex value 128 MB 0x00000080 256 MB 0x00000100 512 MB 0x00000200 1024 MB (1 GB) 0x00000400 2048 MB (2 GB) 0x00000800 3072 MB (3 GB) 0x00000C00 4096 MB (4 GB) 0x00001000 5120 MB (5 GB) 0x00001400 6144 MB (6 GB) 0x00001800 7168 MB (7 GB) 0x00001C00 8192 MB (8 GB) 0x00002000 9216 MB (9 GB) 0x00002400 10240 MB (10 GB) 0x00002800 11264 MB (11 GB) 0x00002C00 12288 MB (12 GB) 0x00003000 13312 MB (13 GB) 0x00003400 14336 MB (14 GB) 0x00003800 15360 MB (15 GB) 0x00003C00 16384 MB (16 GB) 0x00004000 Once we're done modding, we're gonna save the changes and convert the xml file back into hex, using this command: ./gfxutil -i xml -o hex device-properties.xml device-properties.hex Step 4 (reading the modded hex): Unpack gfx_hex (attached) file into your working directory and double click to run it. It should output the content of your modded hex into a terminal window, and it should look something like this: Select and copy that code. After that, open up Clover Configurator and paste that hex code in Devices -> Properties section (see below) and check the box for Inject. You can also add this manually into the config.plist file, if that's more of your thing. Step 5 (setting up final arrangements): We're almost done. But, if your experience is the same as mine, at this point you only got the loading bar back centered. Which, of course is a step forward. But we're not quite there yet. So, to add the logo as well, we will check the boxes for Patch VBios and Inject EDID in Clover Configurator (Graphics section). You can inject your own EDID if you have one. Though, in my experience, Clover does a really good job in adding the correct one itself. So you don't really need to add a custom EDID. Just to use Clover's InjectEDID feature. Also, in my experience, you don't need CsmVideoDrv.efi for this to work. And I've got pretty similar results with and without it. So, if you have issues with it, you can try without it, and vice-versa. When it's all done, save the changes to your config. Now, I would highly recommend you to make a backup of your current config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover/config.plist anywhere you want. You might need it later. When that's done too, replace the config.plist in your Clover folder with the one you just modded, and restart. Keep your fingers crossed (toes too). And hope for the best. If everything ok, you should have a pretty close to perfect second stage boot. If not, you might have nothing or an unbootable system. To fix this, boot from your USB installer, or use boot flag nv_disable=1 (for Nvidia cards), upon booting, and revert the changes. Or, if you already know where is the problem, fix that and restart. That's it. Please, let me know if it worked for you. gfx_hex.zip IORegistryExplorer.app.zip gfxutil.zip device-properties.xml

    Installing On a HPZ400

    I am going to be installing Yosemite on a HP Z400 that has a Xeon W3635 and I am replacing graphics with an R9 270x. The Z400 is coming in on Monday and I was wondering if It would be a good idea to record my entire process and upload the video to help others that may be having trouble? Would anyone be interested in this sort of video and I will also try El Captain and do the same if people say they would be interested
  17.

  18. My business is slow in updating OS's, and as a result, I'm still using Yosemite. I recently got a magic trackpad 2, only to discover it only works with El Capitan. However, I do have forcetouch capability on my macbook pro, and so i'm thinking maybe all that is missing are the drivers for the magic trackpad 2.... has anyone managed to get the magic trackpad 2 working with Yosemite? I can pair it, but it acts like a dumb mouse, just move and click, no gestures or anything. Thanks! OSX Yosemite 10.10.5 Macbook Pro Mid-2015 15-inch 2.5 GHz 16 GB RAM 512 GB SSD
  19. Hi guys, crazy problem. so, i can boot from NVME. but not if Thunderbolt card is plugged in. screen just goes black when apple logo would normally show up, then desktop. it just stops. I can boot from normal SSD, and be able to mount the NVME (non-booting), and use Thunderbolt, but i want to be able to boot from the NVME and use Thunderbolt. I've tried putting the Thunderbolt card in different slots, and that hasn't been helping so far. Might there be any Clover flags perhaps, that could fix this? or any other solution? Donation for working solution! my config: 5960X X99-A Yosemite Clover ThunderboltEX II Samsung 950 Pro NVME SSD
  20. Hello everybody. I need help to understand and use some patches that Pike R. Alpha has found for XCPM on his Broadwell-E cpu on X99 board. Here's the article. My knowledge is not enough to elaborate it and apply to Clover bootloader (or, I guess to the kernel itself). I think this is going to be huge. Even for Haswell-E and Ivy Bridge-E cpus. He's found some solution to have XCPM without VoodooTSCSync.kext, MSR(0xE2) unlocked BIOSes, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, FakeCPUid flag, etc... My set up (to be in a few day, components on their way) - Motherboard Asus X99-A II - CPU Intel i7 6900K Broadwell-E - RAM 64 GB DDR4 Corsair CMK32GX4M2B3000C15R Vengeance LPX - SSD nvme Samsung MZ-V5P512BW 950PRO m.2 - Video card EVGA nVidia GTX980 TI - ASUS ThunderboltEX II/Dual PCI-E card - OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan Yes, he's on Sierra DP3, but I (and many others, I might say) still am on 10.11.6 El Capitan or earlier (Yosemite). Anybody here? Thanks in advance g.

    Booting problem

    Hi everyone, i successfully managed to install Yosemite 10.10.1 (Niresh) on my Toshiba laptop. Chameleon installed itself while installing Yosemite, so i was able to boot without the usb flawlessly. Everything was working fine, and i decided to put the laptop to sleep manualy, since closing the tray didn't do anything. This caused the computer to shutdown by itself and when i tried to boot again, i passed the toshiba logo and all i can ser now is the blinking line, wihtout any text. I tried to insert the usb but this came up: "boot0:doneboot1: /boot" with the blinking line at the end. I tried to re-write the usb, but the same thing happen. Can someone help me out please?? Thanks in advance

    Best settings for HD5770

    Hi guys, I have a very good hackintosh in a G5 case with original look. I'm using Clover for UEFI booting and everything except one thing is good. I'm using MacPro 3,1 as SMBIOS. I know my video card is old, but it could perform a bit better and stay a bit cooler. I read people say that they have the same card (Vapor-x) running around 36 degrees, which is a lot cooler than mine. My problem is that in Mavericks it runs with 57-58 degrees Celsius on idle. In Yosemite it's 54 degrees with 26 ambient temperature. In terms of performance I see no problems. The only difference which I know of in Clover is SMBIOS. In Mavericks I use MacPro 3,1 and in Yosemite iMac 13,2 12,2. In both my card is correctly recognized with some settings in Clover. (Later I will post a screenshot). The only thing I didn't touch on either system is AGPM kext. I would like to try to tweak that, but I still don't understand how it works and what are the values I need to put. So my question is if someone is using this card with Clover and has a better performance in terms of temperature, please share some info what needs to be done to get the best of this card.

  23. Hello everybody, I hope not be breaking any rules of the forum. I am trying to install Yosemite 10.10.1 in my notebook however already tried a lot and the same problem persists. I am searching for days without success. To boot and load all Kext appear the words: "Starting darwin x86_64" and before loading the screen with the apple logo restarts. Follow my config notebook: Core 2 Duo T9600 2.6GHz with 6MB cache (GM965 / GML960 / GL960) 740mhz bus speed audio intel broadcom network 5701 4GB memory ddr2 ICH SATA AHCI-8M Video Nvidia 8600m GT 512mb PCi-and Slot-1 Currently runs the Lion 10.7.2 in 64bit with Darwin 11.2.0 kernel and chamaleon It features a Phoenix bios quite limited, the unique existing options and I set up are AHCI, and USBLegacy. Already tried with both enabled or disabled. Has no XD or HPET as in bios. Normal Bios (legacy) and not UEFI bios Some unsuccessful attempts: -Tried to boot from USB and the dvd -Deactivated and removed USB peripherals, already removed battery, up to the wireless network card -Created a boot with direct Yosemite from Apple's download with Uni-Beast -Also Already tried using Distros as Niresh and iATKOS -Tried with HD, without hd, hd sata with normal, with HD sata ssd -Tried Six (6) different kernels, and even modified the original kernel along the lines of haswell -boot with the USB leaving him as the first to be born in the bios The problem occurs in all situations. Already used all the flags below combined in all imaginable ways: NPCI = 0x2000 NPCI = 0x3000 ForceHpet = Yes (also with No) GraphicsEnabler = Yes (also with No) PciRootUID and PciRoot (with 0 and 1) -v -x -f (combined or alone, in various ways) cpus = 1 (y = 0) busratio = (16, 20, 22, 33) VBIOS = Yes Smbiosdefaults = no USBFix XPMC-FREE dart = 0 USBLegacyOff = (Yes and No) DropSSDT and DSDT = 0 nv_disable = 1 kext-dev-mode = 1 RestartFix = Yes In UserKernelCache = nvda_drv = 1 not in Single User -s he enters, as also restarts before Already created a DSDT in lion and tried booting with chamaleon nothing has changed. The lion and the only version that installs, then tried the Mountain Lion, the Mavericks and now Yosemite, all have the same problem this topic to restart after loading the Kext. Attached the full information of my hardware I would like if possible that someone help me because this is not easy, sold out my alternatives. Thank you.
