  1. Mojave (and maybe High Sierra 10.13.6) on Asrock H370M-ITX/ac and getting RX560 or RX580 to work with Intel graphics for full hardware acceleration Components used: Core i7 8700, UHD 630 Gigabyte Radeon RX560 Wifi/BT BCM943602BAED (DW1830) M.2 Sapphire Nitro RX 580 Samsung PM961 NVMe SSD *This guide requires you to know the basics, meaning how to create a macOS install drive, installing and using Clover. There are great beginners guides out there! As always you need at least FakeSMC to boot, every other kext I’ve used is mentioned in the guide. For Mojave beta you need to be enlisted with your Apple-ID in Apple’s beta programme. What is described here may work for High Sierra 10.13.6, but I doubt it to be reliable. Even in early beta status (PB3) Mojave runs much more stable and smoother than High Sierra ever did for me.* *UPDATE Mojave final* For the final release of Mojave you can use my attached Clover folder as a reference. If you don't have a Radeon RX 580 installed or you prefer WhatEverGreen just use the DSDT_no_graphics.aml and rename it to DSDT.aml. You need to have updated to BIOS V3.00 to use it. *UPDATE* I've updated to BIOS Revision 3.00 which seems to work fine in contrast to 1.50. Already compiled a new DSDT and uploaded it alongside a new config.plist. You can use both if you like. If you don't use a RX 580 you need to edit the PEG0-PEGP section in the DSDT to adjust it to your graphics hardware. With this DSDT and config in place you'll only need FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet, USBinjectall plus XHCI-300-Injector, Lilu plus AppleALC for Sound. You can add Shiki for iTunes DRM playback if you like, I've uploaded the latest version as well. Avoid Whatevergreen at this time. UEFI-BIOS settings: The board comes with BIOS version 1.20, there is an update 1.50 on the Asrock website. Usually it is good to stay updated but in this case I’ll recommend to stay on 1.20, because the 1.50 version seems to be unstable and I had restarts upon wake and things like that I couldn’t get fixed even with dsdt patches. So I just downgraded to 1.20 which runs fine. Settings needed: Just the usual. Disable fast boot and security boot (everything Windows-related), disable vt-d and enable XHCI hand-off. Activate multi monitor support and set VRAM to 64MB to activate the Intel IGPU. From what I’ve read most people recommend 128MB but I find the 64MB setting to be more reliable, getting artifacts with settings below or above 64MB. 128MB may be needed for 4k support, though. *Update* BIOS V 3.00 with Mojave final release works fine with 128MB. As for nVidia users: You may have to disable the Intel graphics. I’m using an AMD card and that is the brand to go these days since Apple decided to work with AMD Clover and power management: I recommend upgrading to 4586. It seems that Aptiomemoryfix is now working with H370 chipsets. I stayed on OsxAptiomemoryfix2 together with Emuvariable and it works. Feel free to experiment. *Update* Now using OsxAptioV3. For power management with your CoffeeLake cpu you can just tick plugin type within Clover or compile a ssdt with Pikeralphas script. Mojave reports my cpu correctly as Core i7 since PB3, before that it is just “Unknown” but that is just cosmetic. Graphics: *UPDATE* Whatevergreen 1.2.3 now supports Displayport on Nitro RX580. Still recommend DSDT or SSDT port activation instead as it runs more reliable and faster than WhatEverGreen. *UPDATE* I updated to PB4/DP5 and switched to a Sapphire Nitro RX 580. You don't need to spoof Kabylake anymore, SMBIOS 18,x now works and can use my attached DSDT_RX580 for your convenience! You'll need it for displayport to work as primary display or else you get black screen on boot and can use only HDMI. Problems are the same as written below in the graphics section. If you need iTunes you absolutely need to keep a copy of the latest Shiki that is available, because it is discontinued. The newest WhatEverGreen-Fix (1.2.0/1.2.1) does not work! If you want to use Final Cut and don't need iTunes just stay away from Shiki or Whatevergreen. This is the worst part. Getting the Radeon to run correctly alongside the Intel graphics took me weeks to figure out. While RX570 and 580 run out of the box in most cases, the RX560 models often do not or at least not correctly. Apple even banned them from eGPU use. For my approach you cannot use “Whatevergreen.kext”, it simply didn’t work for me the way I needed it. Instead I added some fixes to my DSDT to set the correct number of ports used (DP, HDMI, DVI) and tell macOS to use the correct frambuffer. For those who are not into dsdt editing I added my DSDT, look at the “PEGP” section how it is done. This works for the RX560 using the “Acre” framebuffer, you can replace it with “Radeon”, that works too. Other cards need a different framebuffer and a different number of ports. You can do it! BTW: Do not buy this Gigabytecard!!! It has some weird VBIOS on it, which caused me nightmares before I got the card to work! Buy a Sapphire card instead, they are used by Apple too. To get full hardware acceleration for encoding videos you have to have the Intel graphics enabled alongside your AMD card. Problem is, you cannot have it running simply as a second graphics card but you’ll need to “hide” it, means telling macOS that it doesn’t have any display connectors. Otherwise you’ll have screen artifacts or in the worst case just constant crashes. This can be done by adding a certain ig-platform-id in Clover. If you use 59120003 the Intel graphics will not show up in system profiler but it is there. You can check it with iStats or HWMonitor or look if the Kaby Lake graphics kexts are loaded. This ID makes the CoffeeLake UHD 630 to be recognized as a Kaby Lake gpu that has no display ports, is just used as a helper card. You’ll need it as a helper card for video encoding. That is what Intel graphics are used for in Macs, to support video encoding on the hardware side. You can check if hardware encoding is supposedly enabled by using MacX Video Converter Pro and VDADecoderChecker. If both say “yes” and “fully supported” this is a good start. But despite the widespread belief this doesn’t mean everything is set correctly! You now have to find out, how to get both cards working together. This is the moment where you have to choose between work and fun: Are you using FinalCut Pro for video editing or are you planning to use iTunes for entertainment? Up until this day (Mojave PB3 PB4/DP5, High Sierra 10.13.6) you cannot have both working correctly! I’ll show you how it is done both ways. The best settings for Final Cut: Use the DSDT I’ve added with the respective AMD settings for the RX560 or modify them for your graphics card. Use SMBIOS for iMac17,1 (14,2 does work but picture over DP port is ugly, iMac 18,1/2/3 do not work *Since Mojave PB4 they do work at least for RX580*) in Clover. Have AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kextin your Clover/kexts/Other folder. Until Mojave PB2 (may work on High Sierra 10.13.6): Fake-ID 3E928086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 These are the correct setting when installing Mojave (usually you will start with PB1 as the full installer). For Mojave PB3 and higher: Fake-ID 59128086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 After upgrading to PB3 you will get a black screen with 3E92 fake id because PB3 introduces Coffee Lake kexts and macOS will use these kexts instead but that doesn’t work with our ig-platform-id. So you can download the update to PB3 but before installing it you’ll need to change the fake-id to a usual Kaby Lake id. While this didn’t work in High Sierra and the first two Mojave betas (meaning you didn’t get full hardware encoding) it is now magically working with PB3. It is safe to remove AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kext after upgrading to PB3. For Mojave PB4 and higher (including final release): Only add ig-platform-id 3E920003 and inject Intel = Yes in Clover, no need for spoofing a fake id anymore. Now iMac18,3 works best with AMD. Intel only users should use iMac18,1 instead. The best setting for iTunes and why it is the worst for Final Cut: Just do the same thing as for FinalCut, put Shiki.kext into your Clover/kexts/other folder and add -shikigva boot argument. You can use -shikigva=1 or 2 or 12 it will work either way. Now you can watch movies with iTunes, yay! But it has some sideeffects. You cannot use this setting when seriously editing with Final Cut. While this works by tricking macOS to use the IntelGraphics to play protected video content, it doesn’t seem to be the way real Macs are doing this. As soon as you open FinalCut you will notice (check this with iStats or HWMonitor) that the Intel graphics is not or only barely utilized under certain circumstances depending on your material. Instead cpu usage skyrockets, indicating that slow software rendering is used instead of hardware encoding through Intel graphics. To make it worse the Radeon still “thinks” there is an Intel graphics helping so it does not run at highest potential. Wifi and Bluetooth *UPDATE* With Mojave PB4/DP5 Bluetooth stopped working with Rehabman's kext, my MagicMouse simply isn't connecting anymore. I decided to finally remove the card because handoff isn't working anyway these days with M.2 or NGFF bluetooth on High Sierra or Mojave (tried several ones "the internet" claims they would work oob but they do not ;)). That is what I wanted Bluetooth for. If you need Wifi I recommend you go with a cheap Wifi-only card, you don't need to pay 30 or 40 $ for dual cards that won't work the way they were intended to work. If you are on a micro ATX board and can have a graphics card plus PCIe Wifi/BT-card that actually connects to a physical USB port on you're board then you may be lucky enough to have handoff working as expected. I'm having a wifi repeater laying around with an ethernet port in case I may need wifi someday on my hack. I swapped the Intel Wifi card that was coming with the mainboard plugged into the onboard M.2 port with a compatible Dell card. The DW1830 or BCM943602BAED. The wifi part runs half way out of the box, but if you want the card to appear as Apple AirportExtreme and set the country code according to your country you need to put FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext into Clover/kexts/other and add some Clover kext-to-patches by PMHeart.

You’ll need BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext OR BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. The Data.kext can be injected through Clover, just throw it into the kexts/other folder, the Repo.kext has to be installed in /Library/Extensions on your mac drive, it won’t work with Clover. I had issues with the Data.kext, Bluetooth was gone on every second or third reboot. The Repo.kext is more reliable, haven’t had any issues yet. I really don’t like the kexts to be installed in my system but I guess I have to live with it for the time being. Oh, handoff and continuity don’t work, doesn’t matter that system profiler shows them as enabled. At least it works in one way: the mac can handoff Safari pages to my iPhone, but not the other way around. Documents opened on my phone show up in the dock, but they are not loaded. This issue is around since at least High Sierra and from what I’ve read Rehabman is not going to fix this, because he founds this features not worth it. I have to disagree, these are very convenient and valuable features if you work with desktop, laptop and tablet in different situations, I miss this capability very much! Audio Audio works with Lilu.kext plus AppleALC.kext and you need to inject Layout ID=1 in Clover if you don't use a patched DSDT. For Mojave use the boot setting -lilubetaall to force the kexts to load. If you like to have DP or HDMI audio add a HDAU device to your dsdt (see mine for reference). There's an audio patch already added in my DSDT, so you don't need to use the Clover patch. Credits: Credits go to this great community! I hope I mentioned everyone in this guide whose insights made this hack possible. If I have forgotten someone please let me know! CLOVER_Mojave_Final.zip

  3. Ciao a tutti, ultimamente ho deciso di mettermi al lavoro e fare un investimento a lungo termine comprando un fisso che ho assemblato pezzo dopo pezzo leggendo numerosi forum per essere bene informato sul miglior hardware che potessi ottenere per un Hackintosh ottimizzando al meglio i costi: ho finito così per comprare: Hardware: -Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro (Rev 1.0) -CPU: Intel i7 9700k raffreddato a liquido (CoffeLake) -GPU: AMD Radeon RX580 (avendo letto le eccellenti prestazioni a ottimo prezzo per MacOS) -RAM: 32GB DDR4 Crucial Ballistix Sport LT (4x8GB 3000MHz) -NVMe SSD Samsung 970 Evo 250GB M.2 dedicato solo a MacOS, nel secondo slot della Mobo M.2 avrei poi messo un Western Digital Blue da 250GB con Windows 10 su metà disco e per l'altra metà il Debian che sto utilizzando adesso Poi mi sono messo subito al lavoro per cercare di far partire questo benedetto MacOs su una macchina non ufficiale, ho tovato quindi questa guida su GitHub che era molto simile alla mia configurazione: https://github.com/cmer/gigabyte-z390-aorus-master-hackintosh/blob/master/STEP_BY_STEP.md Dopo aver fatto partire una macchina virtuale per configurare la USB come comunemente viene fatto, scaricando l'applicazione e facendo il "burn/copia dei file" di macOS su pennetta esterna rendendola bootabile solamente da un pc ufficiale mac, sono passato alla configurazione di Clover (l'EFI installer, cartella che allegherò qui sotto, ma prima leggete il problema): Ho messo i driver necessari, mettendo quelli che lui menzionava sotto la sezione "building the usb installer" https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/building-the-usb-installer Install Clover for UEFI booting only Install Clover to the ESP Under Drivers64UEFI: AptioMemoryFix (the new hotness that includes NVRAM fixes, as well as better memory management) (che poi ho dovuto rimuovere, leggi sezione https://github.com/cmer/gigabyte-z390-aorus-master-hackintosh/blob/master/STEP_BY_STEP.md#fixing-kernel-panics-at-rebootshutdown) VBoxHfs-64.efi (or HFSPlus.efi if available) - one of these is required for Clover to see and boot HFS+ volumes. If you see the option to enable it in the installer, make sure it's selected - if you don't see it in the installer, verify that one of them exists in the EFI -> CLOVER -> drivers64UEFI folder ApfsDriverLoader - (Available in Dids' Clover builds - or here) this allows Clover to see and boot from APFS volumes by loading apfs.efi from ApfsContainer located on block device (if using AptioMemoryFix as well, requires R21 or newer) applicando piccole modifiche a causa di un errore già riportato da questa persona che ha scritto la guida di GitHub di sostituire AptioMemoryFix-64 (dalla cartella EFI/EFI/CLOVER/driver64UEFI) con OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000, questa infatti riportava quanto segue dopo aver detto di aver sostituito AptioMemoryFix-64.efi con OsxaptioFix2Drv-free2000: "I am told that there are downsides (that I don't fully understand yet) to using OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000, so do this at your own risk." Ho configurato poi il config.plist Come diceva lui, partendo da questo file: https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/config.plist-per-hardware/coffee-lake e applicando le modifiche che sotto ha descritto, del tipo: Open coffeelake_sample_config.plist with Clover Configurator (right click → Open With → Clover Configurator) In SMBIOS: - Click the button with an up/down arrow (middle right). Chose iMac18,3. This is important since we'll be connecting our monitor to the RX580. The HDMI port on our motherboard is NOT yet working for Hackintoshes. - Make sure the serial number generated is an iMac (mid-2017) by clicking Model Lookup. - Ensure that Check Coverage reports that the serial is NOT valid. You don't want to use somebody else's serial number. - While you're here, copy your Board Serial Number to your clipboard. You'll need it soon. In Rt Variables: Paste your Board Serial Number in the MLB field. Set CsrActiveConfig to 0x0 which enables SIP for extra security. This should work just fine for a Vanilla Hackintosh install and is how genuine Macs ship. In Boot: Change the Custom Flags to: shikigva=40 uia_exclude=HS14 (this disables onboard Bluetooth since we'll be using an external Broadcom Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter) In ACPI: Click List of Patches and enable the following: Change GFX0 to IGPU In Devices: Set Inject to 16. Now to enable our headless iGPU, we need to fake the device id. To do so, Click Properties, select PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0). Then, click the + button to add a property. Add the following: Property Key: device-id Property Value: 923E0000 Value Type: DATA Click the Export Configuration button (bottom left), then Save As config.plist. Copy your newly generated config.plist to /EFI/CLOVER/ on your bootable USB key. Impostazioni BIOS E avendo settato nel BIOS le impostazioni che questa perona configliava all'inizio della guida, (N.B. la mia versione di Bios è l'ultima, F7 https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z390-AORUS-PRO-rev-10#support-dl-bios) (a quanto risulta il giorno 7.01.2019) Load Optimized Default Settings Peripherals → USB Configuration → XHCI Hand-off : Enabled Chipset → Internal Graphics : Enabled (important for Quicklook/Preview) Please note that we will be using our internal GPU in headless mode only and this guide assumes that. This is how an iMac18,3 (what we're basing our build on) behaves. That's it! I literally didn't change anything else and it just worked. Anche per me ha funzionato. Comunque lui riportava ulteriori settaggi, aggiungendo: However, these are settings that are generally recommended. Your mileage may vary: BIOS → Fast Boot : Disabled BIOS → LAN PXE Boot Option ROM : Disabled BIOS → Storage Boot Option Control : UEFI Peripherals → Trusted Computing → Security Device Support : Disable Peripherals → Network Stack Configuration → Network Stack : Disabled Peripherals → USB Configuration → Legacy USB Support : Auto Peripherals → USB Configuration → XHCI Hand-off : Enabled (Extremely important) () Chipset → Vt-d : Disabled (non l'ho messo e parte a volte, quindi penso che se parte non ha una importanza così rilevante) Chipset → Wake on LAN Enable : Disabled (era già così) Chipset → IOAPIC 24-119 Entries : Enabled Il sistema è partito e soltanto alcune volte dava il seguente errore: Error allocating 0x11996pages at 0x000000001d453000 alloc type 2 Couldn't allocate runtime area. Credo che sia questo piccolo problema: la NVRAM. Non riesco bene a capire dove cercare per sapere con esattezza se è supportato nativamente o meno. Ho cercato di informarmi, voi potreste dirmi se è vero? Premendo poi Ctrl+Alt+Canc riavviavo e selezionando da Clover l'NVMe interno partiva senza dare questo errore, per cui il kernel non trova spazio perché la memoria Non Volatile ad accesso Randomico è troppo frammentata, come Questa guida riportava: Primo post: https://nickwoodhams.com/x99-hackintosh-solving-osxaptiofixdrv-allocaterelocblock-can-not-allocate-relocation-block/ Post aggiornato nel 2016: https://nickwoodhams.com/x99-hackintosh-osxaptiofixdrv-allocaterelocblock-error-update/ Mi sono letto tutto e ho capito che lui applicava anche delle modifiche al file: "Changes to OsxLowMemFixDrv-64.efi were simply editing 0x10000000 to 0x20000000." Ho quindi seguito il suo consiglio di mettere OsxAptiofix Emuvariable 64 e Test2-2016.efi (che lui aveva creato) ma il problema sembrava persistere, più raramente La mia cartella driver64UEFI di ora Dopo aver trovato una strada senza soluzoni anche lì mi sono rivolto a degli amici, e di questo errore ne ho parlato anche con utenti del gruppo Telegram "Hackintosh Italia" che sono stati e ancora sono molto gentili ad aiutarmi spiegandomi che si tratta di un problema di NVRAM, che nel mio caso, avendo installato questi .efi file nella cartella EFI/EFI/CLOVER/driver64UEFI (che ancora è cosi attualmente, oscillando tra couldnt allocate runtime area (anche dopo aver definitivamente staccato la corrente dopo aver spento il PC per capire se poteva aiutare) e a volta anche nessun errore) -ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi -DataHubDxe-64.efi -EmuVariableUefi-64.efi -FSInject-64.efi -HFSPlus-64.efi -NTFS-64.efi -NvmExpressDxe-64.efi -OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi -PartitionDxe-64.efi -UsbKbDxe-64.efi In più ho aggiunto gli RC Scripts (come mi è stato consigliato dai membri del gruppo telegram) sul disco interno in cui mac è installato. Togliendo quindi qualsiasi test.efi o test2- 2016.efi ed ascoltando chi ne sapeva di più. Ora mi trovo a dover affrontare diverse volte questo errore dovendo riavviare per risolverlo, cosa che mi fa dedurre che Osxaptiofix2 2000 sia un po' instabile nel pulire la NVRAM prima di avviare la macchina/ allo spegnimento di questa. Questo problema di couldnt allocate runtime area persiste sebbene prema F12 dalla schermata di Boot di Clover. Vi chiedo gentilmente una mano, inoltre mi è stato detto che siccome il sistema da: -"3.6 GHz unknown nella sezione "Processor" -non riconosce la RAM con un Vendor ID? (del tipo Ballistix dovrebbe essere?) Serve di rivedere il config.plist che ho creato, rivedere i DSDT e gli efi? sono a posto?, (mi hanno detto che gengik84 fare, ma accolgo volentieri l'aiuto di tutti) , vi mando una foto della schermata di "About this Mac" e della EFI in allegato. Quello che farò sicuramente mentre attendo vostre risposte è il downgrade da 10.14.3 Beta a 10.14.2, l'upgrade l'ho fatto pensando che magari avrei aggiustato qualcosa, ma l'errore come lo dava prima lo dà ora, non credo che questo cambi molto le cose in gioco. Comunque è meglio non essere in Beta per aggiustare gli errori. Grazie mille per essere arrivato a leggere fino a questo punto, lo apprezzo molto. Per la cartella EFI: sono 22MB zippati, in allegato non entrano... https://drive.google.com/open?id=106jXkDB0Id045lzIIzAn9F5MwnzWFv3X

    RX 580 - Mojave boots to black screen

    Hi all, My rig: i7-4930k / X79 Deluxe / Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ 4GB / PSU be quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W Like many others I'm getting a black screen when Mojave 10.4.2 boots (I tried with HDMI, DVI and DP to DVI) I'm starting to feel out of options, it's supposed to work OOB Did anyone with the same card and problem manage to fix it? Here is a dump after @MaLd0n kindly offered to help: send_me.zip Current BIOS settings: — ADVANCED — Hyper-threading > Disabled Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology > Enabled Turbo Boost > Enabled Support C1E > Enabled Intel (R) VT-d > Disabled SATA: AHCI mode EHCI Hand-off > Enabled — BOOT — Fast Boot > Disabled CSM > Disabled Secure Boot > Other OS Thanks for the help
  5. This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing: My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done! The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC! BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus Ellesmere.kext.zip
  6. Hi all guys I need your help and I hope you can help me I took the road to install High Sierra on my new build and now I have some doubt / difficulty I do not know how to solve. My configuration: 8700K Asrock Z370 Professional Gaming i7 AMD RX580 Nitro+ 8GB First I created the usb pendrive and I used Clover with the following configurations: Bootflag: dart=0 -v Kext: Bios Setting: VT-d = Disabled Share Memory = 128MB IGPU Multi-Monitor = Enabled XHCI Hand-off = Enabled SMBIOS: iMac18,3 So far no problem, it started successfully, I initialized the hdd in APFS and I ran the installation. Once finished, it started and I made the first configuration successfully. At this point I configured Clover the same way as the installation: Bootflag: dart=0 disablegfxfirmware shikigva=4 -rad4200 darkwake=8 Devices: Graphics: Kernel and Kext Patches: SMBIOS: iMac18,3 Kext: I reboot and start without problems, but I know there is some problem to solve ... for example, the video card seems to recognize it but if I run a benchmark with "Novabench" I noticed that the GPU is recognized as 1GB: With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": || || || I tried to delete "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled" and I recognize the card differently but the same problem presents itself: || || || Why is it recognized by 1GB instead of 8GB? While on System Profiler is recognized by 8GB .... I'm doing something wrong? I tried to enable also "Hardware Encoding & HEVC Support" but I noticed a detail that I do not know if it's right or not (Hardware Info "MacX Video Converter Pro"): Without "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled": With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": [COMING SOON SCREENSHOT] Is it normal that this occurs? Which one is correct? I'm going completely in confusion I'm trying to figure out if I need to make any other changes to the system, if I add some other patches to make it work properly but I do not know where to check. I'm trying to configure the DSDT but DSDT Editor and MaciASL do not work, they do not open the DSDT.aml file generated by AIDA64. Do you know how to give me a hand? I'm banging my head for 2 days I thank you in advance for the help and I apologize for my english I hope I was clear
  7. Hi all. My hack is working almost perfectly except for the inability to launch steam games. I've been looking in the logs and it seems that perhaps this is caused by Steam not knowing which audio device to use, but I'm really not sure. The strange thing is, I'll try to launch a game 9 times and it won't work, then on the 10th time it will magically load again. I've attached my clover folder and a copy of the Console logs that are generated right when launching the game. My knowledge is limited beyond this point to know what is happening and wondering if anybody else has seen this. Has anybody else seen any issues specifically with steam and audio? EDIT: By the way, when I say a game won't start I mean that it won't even load to the menu screen. When it does randomly work, it works perfectly. It reminds me of the old audio issue where sounds would stop working then after a few mins it would start again. I suspect audio is the issue as I can see lots of entries in the logs regarding audio.. that's about as far as I can dig with my limited knowledge! CLOVER.zip Steam load log dump.txt
