    [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    PMPatch is obsolete and not supported by me anymore. I have developed the successor of it, UEFIPatch, which is both more universal and reliable, and uses UEFITool's engine for proper UEFI modification. Combined topic about all my UEFITool-based utilities is here, sources and binaries are available on GitHub. Bug reports are welcome. To any new readers of this topic: it's you who takes all the risk of bricking your board, it's you who is responsible for all things that you do to your PC, not me or any other developer out there! BIOS modifications are risky by their nature, please be aware of it and don't blame me if anything is gone wrong for you. Old PMPatch post and FAQ is in spoiler below:

    Hello, I have set up a new desktop Mac and I have this problem. One of my fans is not working but in this picture is showing that you have two fans. could someone help me with this? I'm totally newb.
  5. Hi, after updating HS my WOL stopped working. It worked for sure in El Capitan, not sure in what version of HS stopped to work. I'm using Ozmosis as bootloader and IntelMausiEthernet (in S/L/E) for network. I created ssdt.aml with ssdtPRGen, and put it in EFI/Oz/Acpi/Load/. WOL is enabled in BIOS, wake for network access is checked pmset -g System-wide power settings: DestroyFVKeyOnStandby 0 Currently in use: standby 0 Sleep On Power Button 1 womp 1 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage powernap 0 networkoversleep 1 disksleep 10 sleep 15 autopoweroffdelay 28800 hibernatemode 0 autopoweroff 0 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 15 standbydelay 10800 If I put machine to sleep, WOL works for a short time, but not working if I let it sleep for a while. I deleted Ethernet in Network, rebooted and recreated it, but still the same.

  6. ciao, Non riesco a creare la usb bootabile per Sierra. Ho eseguito la guida generica di Clover di Gengik84, ho creato la chiavetta manualmente, perche' con lo script .command non funzionava, e non funzionava nemmeno il secondo metodo (createinstallmedia), forse perche' sto usando un hard disk da 60gb al posto di una usb? In ogni caso l'ho creata in modo manuale. ho installato Clover l'ultima versione (2.3k_r3899) , nell'installer ho impostato le prime due spunte (solo avvio EFI /installa nella ISP) e aggiunto OsxAptioFixDrv , poi ho piazzato il Fakesmc.kext slla cartella kext piu' altri kext che sto usando su yosemite, il Fakesmc l'ho preso dalla guida di Gengik, il config.plist ho usato quello che avevo che me l'aveva preparato "Jolly"per Sierra e anche il DSDT era "ready" per Sierra sempre by "Jolly". Fatto tutto faccio partire la chiavetta, la EFi viene vista , la chiavetta bootta ma mi si blocca praticamente subito (vedi foto). Non capisco dove sta l'errore. EFI.zip
  7. The first time my computer sleeps it immediately wakes up. This is what the log says when searching "wake" If I sleep a second time it will work perfectly. Any ideas how to fix this?
  8. Hi, After a successful installation of 10.10.5 on my x99 system there are still things to fix on post. I would appreciate every one's help and contribution to solve these problems. Needing to be fixed: Backlight/Brightness control Sleep/Wake (It doesn't sleep properly and doesn't wake up through mouse touch or keyboard) ThunderboltEX II isn't recognized being the great mystery of this build (devices are always plugged before booting, Bios Security ID is set to Legacy, the card is installed on Pcie x4_1 and recognized in Windows) AppleThunderboltNHI.kext was removed for faster booting Speedstep not accomplished Nvidia Driver - I can't select it at system preferences.

  9. hello, I ran into an issue with my built on an Asus x99 deluxe (last firmware) and a 5930k cpu. if I enable only the 6 physical cores (clover bootflag cpus=6 out of 12) the machine runs stable and no issue whatsoever. as soon as I turn all the cores I experience random crashes and restart. has anyone any suggestions on this topic. thank you in advance
  10. I wrote this "somewhere else" as well, but I thought this might be interesting here too... Haswell/Mavericks Troubles Many people with Haswell laptops (and some desktops) have been running into a new problem Apple has thrown at us. The new Mavericks kernel has power management moved down into the kernel. For this reason, my MacBookAir6,2 running Mavericks does not load AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. In the past, we patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement to avoid the kernel writing to locked CPU MSRs (machine specific registers, credit RevoGirl). Some BIOSes lock some of these registers (the common one is 0xE2, I don't know if others can be locked as well). The problem is that touching these registers when they are locked causes an unexpected fault and you get a KP. It seems this KP is so early, that the kernel is unprepared to handle it, and the computer reboots. Some people have found that if they use a kernel modified for AMD systems, they are able to boot. I tried this and it indeed works. But other things break... I was able to install (using that kernel), but I couldn't boot with caches (always had to use "-f"). Booting with caches caused a KP. In addition, there was no power management. CPU was running at x24 always. But... I decided to see what I could do by building my own kernel. My main thought was to make some changes, see if I could avoid touching locked MSRs with modifications to the source code with the idea to fold the changes into a patch. So, I downloaded the kernel source from opensource.apple.com, found out how to build it (thanks google!), and tried to use it. On first try, I didn't make any changes... and I was surprised that I was able to start the installer with the newly built kernel! No changes and it just works. WTF? Turns out the sources for the kernel do not include the parts for xnu power management. Since it isn't there, it doesn't cause the problem. But of course, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement expects for PM to be provided by the kernel, so it doesn't work. It doesn't crash, but still no power management. Since 10.8.5 does not have this change, I decided to try the (patched) AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement from 10.8.5 (v214). And that actually works. I don't really like doing rollbacks like that, but it is probably a workable solution until something better comes along. I still think it might be possible to patch the kernel to avoid the MSR writing problem. See updates below on patches. Update 2013-11-25 With some prodding by Pike's blog, I went back to my original patch that I had attempted a number of weeks ago, and I found the mistakes I had made with my patch (this was prior to building the kernel from sources). The details are on my blog here: http://racerrehabman.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/maverickshaswell-kernel-patch-for-early-reboot/ As a result, I'm now running a patched mach_kernel (not built from source, but patched from retail), MacBookPro11,2 smbios.plist, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, ssdt.aml generated with Pike's script (plugin-type=1). Of course, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement does not load, as all CPU power management is handled by the kernel (xcpm). In other words, it is running just as a real Haswell MacBookPro would as far as power management. The only "problem" that I can see, is that I'm not getting pstates between x8 and x24, much like the results with iMac14,2. I wonder if something is missing (taking the place of X86PlatformPlugin plists?) that the bootloader/DSDT/SSDT should be injecting to inform the kernel's xcpm behavior? More investigation is needed. I will investigate by watching the behavior of my real MacBookAir6,2 and perhaps a friend's real MacBookPro11,x. Update 2013-11-26 It appears that having a jump in pstates from idle to nominal (in this case x8 to x24) is by design. It appears to be intentional. I loaded AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext on my MacBookAir6,2 and it too jumps from idle (x8) to nominal (x17) with no states in between. Update 2013-12-30 By borrowing some files from a real Mavericks 10.9.1 install on a real MacBookPro11,2, I was able to achieve states in between idle and nominal: AICPUPMI: CPU P-States [ 8 (17) 24 26 29 30 31 32 33 34 ] GPU P-States [ 17 ] Note new state 17. This was booting via Clover with MacBookPro11,2 smbios and custom SSDT using ssdtPRgen.sh. In order to do this, I borrowed from the Mac: /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist /System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext /mach_kernel (version 13.0.2, patched for xcpm) I'm not sure the kernel replacement was necessary, but I did it anyway. I think this means that when a future version of OS X arrives that has true support for MacBookPro11,2, things will work a bit better. I find it interesting that an owner of a a real MacBookPro11,2 cannot do a fresh install of 10.9.1 from the App Store and expect their machine to work as it should.

Here's how to patch it: # in Terminal, assuming your USB is called Installer cp /Volumes/Installer/mach_kernel ~/Desktop/mach_kernel_backup cp /Volumes/Installer/mach_kernel ~/Desktop/mach_kernel cd ~/Desktop # now copy/paste one or more of the perl patches from above into Terminal perl ...[from above]... mach_kernel perl ...[from above]... mach_kernel # patched mach_kernel is now at ~/Desktop/mach_kernel sudo cp mach_kernel /Volumes/Installer/mach_kernel After you install OS X to your HDD, you will have vanilla mach_kernel on the HDD, leading to the same instant reboot problem. So, you must re-enter the OS X installer, and go into Terminal (using Utilities -> Terminal) and replace the mach_kernel with the patched version: # in Terminal from the OS X installer, assuming your HDD volume is called "Macintosh HD" cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/mach_kernel" After that, you can exit the installer, and boot into the installed partition to finish installation and reach the desktop.

  11. Hi Guys, I'm trying to install El Capitan on the following system: Processor: Intel Core i7 2600 Motherboard: Asus P8H77-M Storage: 120GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD / 500GB Seagate 7200RPM HDD Wireless: Asus PCE-AC66 PCI-E Wireless Card Graphics: Asus GTX 660 Ti DCII OC Edition I've managed to get graphics working okay previously, as well as WiFi, to some extent. My main problem is with the motherboard - I couldn't get USB 3 to work, or sleep, or speedstep, all features that I was under the impression DSDT patches and/or BIOS patches (both things I'm happy with doing if someone could help a little... please!) I'm not keen on using a patch that disables power management entirely, I'd rather use one that adds support, if that's possible. I only use Windows for the odd game when I'm not working, so transitioning to Mac OS X, with some degree of stability, is what I'm looking to do. Thank you in advance

    Power management i7-4790K

    Ciao a tutti ragazzi! Vi chiedo aiuto per sistemare il power management del mio sistema. Ho un i7-4790K che non ne vuole sapere di girare come si deve. I risultati migliori dei p-state che sono riuscito ad ottenere sono questi: 8 40 41 42 43 44 (attivando solamente generate c-state e p-state). Ho problemi anche con il file ssdt, inserendolo in /Extra e flaggando dropssdt in ocbp il computer si blocca in avvio su: "Still waiting for root device". Se inserisco solo il file senza flaggare dropssdt il computer si avvia ma lo speed step è sempre 8 40 41 42 43 44. Qualcuno può aiutarmi? Grazie mille a tutti!

    power management HD3000

    Hi, on my packard bell TS44HR , i noticied the HD3000 (id 0x0126, same as early 2011 13" MBP 8,1) don't have his power management working at all. it stuck at his low frequency all time (checked with intel power gadget) someone know about this issue ? actually under 10.8.5, using MBP 8,1 smbios, with a tuned fakesmc to match the model. i have a generated ssdt for CPUPM (kp at boot if not present), and "dropSSDT=Yes"in chameleon. (nothing change on this point if i set to "No") and, is the igp powermanagement depending from the original cpu ssdt ? thanks
  14. Hi guys. I spend last week trying to make my pm being operative but I failed. I also spend most of that time on different forums trying to find solution to my problem but all methods I've tried didn't work. About the platform: I have patched asus BIOS 3603 using PMPatch and set turbo mode to 4.5GHz (was also set as default to 3.9 but it also didn't work). In bios i have enabled only c1 state, eist and turbo mode - also virtualization cause it kp when it's off. DSDT generated compiled and repaired with DSDTEditor. SSDT generated from MaciASL for turbo 45 and tdp 95. About the problem: PM works... a bit. GeekBench score is quite reliable - 12589. It boots without NullCPU[...] but MSRDumper shows only 16 and 35 no 45 or any steps between. I tried different smbios from macmini, imac and so on. All the time I get only those 2 states. Generating CStates and PStates gives me more states on boot but MSR still reports only 2 I posted above... I tried injecting SSDT pstate section directly into dsdt but it also gave me no luck. - I heard that it can be necessary for asus boards. So do you have any ideas cause I have none left. Will be really grateful for any help. PS. Attached SSDT from MaciASL and DSDT. PM_DSDT.zip

  16. Hello, folks! My main hackintosh has been working like a charm for longer that I could remember. Then it crashed badly after a power surge last week, and apparently died. After testing individually each and every component, I found that either the motherboard was burned, or it's firmware became corrupted. Hoping for the latter, I did a CMOS reset and, after an seemingly infinite boot loop (in itself a good sign, since at least the computer was turning on), I was able to access the BIOS and enter my settings. Props for Gigabyte's Dual BIOS system! The following day, I decided to give my computer a newer case, one with better ventilation, size, looks and front audio and USB3 connections. After my hardware was installed on its new enclosure, I noticed that About This Mac reported my hackintosh as an "iMac 27'', mid 2011", despite my iMac 13,1 smBIOS, which was loaded and correctly reported as such in the system report. And, after HWMonitor detected higher-than-usual CPU temps, I ran MSRDumper and found I was getting only 16 and 34 and the turbo 36, 37 and 38 multipliers as p-states. To make things worse, today I realized my computer wasn't waking up properly - it would wake, but to a black screen, forcing me to a hard reboot. Console.app logs were of no help at all. I'm using the same ACPI tables, Chameleon settings and smBIOS I've been using for quite a while without any issues, so I suspect that the USB3 front header (which doesn't work) or the backup BIOS the motherboard loaded when the original one crashed might be the cause(s) of my woes. How can I isolate the culprit and, if possible, how can I solve this - I'm lost here. Any help with getting the front USB3 (which uses the motherboard header) to work like the rear USB3 ports do (with DSDT edits, because I never needed kexts for the rear ones, using this method instead: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287901-how-to-get-intel-7-series-usb-30-fully-working-step-by-step-guide/page-4?hl=%2Bgiacomoleopardo&do=findComment&comment=1992234 ) would also be greatly appreciated. I'm on 10.9.2 by the way. All the best!

    DIY Antipop

    This is the same idea as Robert Tomsick's Antipop installer. For some reason it didn't work in mavericks so I decided to make my own implementation. Limitations: Can not fix initial pop from booting computer. Can not fix pop for waking from sleep. After switching audio sources there may be a pop. Download this program. http://www.soma-zone.com/LaunchControl/ and maybe pay this guy It will make it easier to create a custom launchctl Step 1: Create the antipop shell script say " " Save this file to /Library/antipop.sh (I'm not sure if this is the best location but it's where I put my script) Use terminal to make this file executable chmod +x /Library/antipop.sh Step 2: Create a launchctl job using Launch Control like this.

    Looking for a solution for GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 on Maverick to help get powermanagement please! Thanks!
  19. Hi I'm running 10.6.8 and on every version of OSX the CPU speed scales down from 1.6GHz to 800MHz when the AC power cord is unplugged and running on battery. This was confirmed by GeekBench. I'm pretty sure this is to do with Intel SpeedStep but there's no option in the BIOS to disable it. VoodooPowerMini, VoodooBattery and NullCPUPowerManagement are installed but the problem still remains. Any ideas on how to resolve this issue? Is something like CoolBook to set a fixed, specific CPU speed the only option? Thanks
  20. Hi everyone, basically I had to reinstall Sierra because I downloaded cpusensor gpusensor and acpisensor kexts, mounted the efi folder and put them in, when I restarted, Sierra would just restart at the apple screen, I tried booting into Sierra with a usb stick, didn't work, so I had to do a full reinstall. Everything worked off the bat, didn't have to install any kexts, however, I'd like to create an ssdt (where you extract your bios info, I believe thats what its called and whats needed for power/fan management) Figure out a way to make the bios automatically adjust fan speeds and/or manually adjust speeds myself ( I assume I need kexts but not sure which ones or where to put them) and ask you guys just to make sure if I'm not missing any kexts right now because when I started Sierra, everything worked in regards to audio, keyboards, mouse and screen Thank you for your time System Motherboard: Asus p8v 77z-lx cpu: intel i5 3570k ivy bridge Graphics: intel hd4000 psu: evga supernova 650 g2 ram: corsair vengeance 8 gig HD: dedicated hd for OS X Sierra

    Unique problem

    So, currently I'm running Mountain Lion 10.8.5 on the laptop in my signature. It is able to boot and most everything works so far. One of those things is sleep, but it acts kind of strange. When I boot and make it to the desktop, it's quite slow and the graphics are laggy to the point of where the thing is unusable, but when I close the lid or somehow reach the menu and hit sleep and then wake, everything is fast again. I want it to just be fast on startup. Any ideas? I've google'd quite a lot and haven't the slightest clue what's wrong.
  22. Ciao a tutti ragazzi Sto sbattendo la testa su un problema con l'audio di questo computer: Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H CPU: Intel i5 3570K OS: Yosemite 10.10.5 Bootloader: Clover 2.3 r3193 Dovrei essere riuscito a far funzionare tutto il necessario, ma mi manca l'audio, dalle specifiche della mobo sto litigando con una Realtek ALC887. Avendo clover come bootloader ed avendo già utilizzato questa guida in un altra occasione ho tentato nello stesso modo di far funzionare l'audio eseguendo 3. cloverALC/Clover patched di quella guida ma il terminale non riesce a completare l'operazione. Successivamente ho provato scaricando da internet un po' di kext ma niente neanche li. Qualcuno può aiutarmi? Per il resto così a primo impatto la macchina sembra che funzioni correttamente. Ho qualche dubbio sul power management visto che mi è bastato abilitare generate c state e p state in clover configurator per vedere il processore muoversi un po' su e giù senza fare dei gradini immondi.. è possibile che sia bastato quello? Credo che per il resto il config sia configurato correttamente Grazie ragazzi
  23. 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

    i7 870 SpeedStep

    Hello, I've been trying to get Speedstep working on my Intel Core i7 870 (Lynnfield) with no success. I've modified my DSDT with some patches and now I've got different multipliers in every core (x9, x22, x23, x24, x26, I think), but I also want to get working the other multipliers (x11, x17... etc) like in Windows. I've OS X 10.11.6 and Clover 3676. I use the last version of FakeSMC with its plugins. I've attached my DSDT, IOReg copy and my Clover config.plist. Thank you, Oscar copia.zip
