EFI strings don't change anything

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

After all of your great help snow is now running stable for 40 minutes @ 64 bit. ^_^

 

I've added EFI strings with osx86tools but after a reboot nothing has changed...

When I go to "/library/systemConfiguration/Preferences/com.apple.Boot.plist" i see this:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

I think that that should be good...

 

Two things i can think of:

*<string>1920x1080x32</string> the x is just the letter X, does that matter?

*I'm/ osx86tools is just editing the wrong file...

 

Somebody a suggestion?

 

edit:

A reboot after the reboot was the solution... :)

I just updated to 10.6.1 all things are still working, only the efi strings are not working anymore...

Same problem as before, no matter what i change I don't see any difference...

Maybe the "com.apple.boot.plist" file has a cache or something...

    • Is there a simple guide somewhere that explains what to do to to help out testing your ssdt's? I got clover configurator, ioregexplorer and some basic knowledge but it's hard to find out where to start.  Also... if I was about to apply an ssdt... is it easily reversible or do I have do an reinstall every time I screw up?   Edit: Admire your work by the way. I've been google'n this for years. Hat's off! 
    •   Hi Maldon, great guide! I got my old Dell 780 (LGA775) running High Sierra 10.13.4 nicely, thank you!   I have no audio and I see where you mention "Device HDEF + AppleALC + Lilu". I have AppleALC + Lilu in my KEXT folder but not sure what "Device HDEF" is.    Also I see where you have included a DSDT for your 5450 and Quad core. I have a Q9400 quad core + Nvidia Quadro FX580 but didn't want to try your DSDT since it's for AMD. Do you have a DSDT for my combo? When it goes to sleep it takes like 2 minutes to wake.     Here are my RunMe Results https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Duv3XYyW4UhziDVVWdquwxYcGQ-D5tvm/view?usp=sharing   SPECS: Dell 780 MT, Q9400 2.66GHz Core2Quad Core, Nvidia Quadro FX580 
    • I've tried these several methods of booting into clover, but it still skips. I even double checked that i was using your Clover folder. Bios settings should be the same too... this is getting really strange here.
    • Did you tried use ACPIBatteryManager.kext for the Battery? And for brightness you can use IntelBacklight  Both created by @RehabMan
