Need help installing OSX86 on Acer 7720

Recommended Posts

I have read a few posts with similar specs to my Acer, but I guess I must be doing something wrong. Here are my specs and you tell me what Kext I need to select please:

 

Acer 7720

CPU - Intel C2D T5500

GPU - Nvidia 8600M GT 512MB

WIFI - Intel 4965

 

What I selected for everything was I left the Kernel vanilla. GPU I went with NVDarwin. WIFI there is the Kext for the intel wifi card so used that. I also selected timesync fix(dual boot), ps/2 fix. I cant get a successful install. Anything I am doing wrong? Also i read there was a program that auto-configures kext based on computer specs, but I have looked everywhere and cannot find it :trumpet: . Any help would be appreciative thanks!

    • It seems nice that chris1111 provided a patch, but I can't -- in good conscience -- download a random binary file from github and run it on my system.    What is so proprietary about his patch that he can't include source? I think I'll wait until the updated driver comes out before I update... 
    • hey MaLd0n  It's been a while since I used clover, so a lot of things went rusty. Can you please look at my setup and guide/help what should be done next?  https://fex.net/354949878474?fileId=441517695   Current setup:  GA-Z97X-UD3H Xeon e3 1245v3  Msi GTX 1050ti Gaming X
    • Hi @fabiosun and thank's for your patience with an old and stubborn man.   I am 100 % sure that my MSR 0xE2 register is unlocked thank's to you.   My system is 100% stable and I haven't had one kp with this configuration in the last two weeks.    I'm now running without TSCAdjustReseat.kext and I can't se any issues in performance with or without that kext. What I however can se is that the amount of total energy consumed during the test-cycle are 10 times higher without the kext (three times Cinebench CPU and two times Luxmark open CL) as you can see in the output from my AppleIntelInfo.kext attached in my earlier post.   I have tested running Cinebench five times in a row with or without TSC kext and have exactly the same performance (see attached files). Temperature is not a problem at all.   Everything seems to be fine so I guess I have to wait and see if upcoming 10.13.5 maybe recognise Intel Xeon w series processor as native.     
    • Tried with HPET enabled and disabled so I don't think it's that. I'd tried with bus ratio before to no effect but wouldn't hurt to try again. The clock runs at the correct speed.
    • could be an HPET / TSC Sync issue. does your system clock slow down or run faster then it should. also check cpu and buss ratios.
