Reboot gets to login but no users, password box, buttons, logo, etc. Help?

Recommended Posts

I would take a screenshot, but there's not much to show. It's the gray (textured) Mac login screen, but nothing appears on the screen. No apple logo, no buttons at the bottom, no users, no password box, no clock or airport. Nothing. I've let it sit here for about 15 minutes, but nothing.

 

This happens after apply the battery fix (from here: http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=2284, note that this is not the same as the one from http://www.insanelym...howtopic=259702, which didn't work for me).

 

The battery fix from osx86 actually worked, but when I rebooted, I get the problem above.

 

What could cause this to happen?

Am I missing any kexts that could cause this?

 

I'm running Lion 10.7.3 on a Dell Studio 1558.

    • I did try that just now but it seems like the card is still active as it still shows up in system report! I have managed to get the battery meter working but as i said it works only when i unplug/plug the ac adapter. I have to do this once then the meter functions properly.
    • My BIOS has an option of enabling/disabling CSM! I think enabling CSM made my boot menu go non native resolution too!
    • I have a gigabyte Aorus ultra. I don't think so, everything should be uefi. Anything I should look at in particular? 
    • All right now : I have taked delivery of my new TBEX3  this afternoon : plugged and all is fine at startup, screen plugged on USB_C   My Settings recap :   1/ Bios recommended parameters for Thunderbolt + Pci devices set as Legacy 2/ I added arbitrary lines on my config.plist ( Thanks @Matthew82.) <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>THUNDERBOLT 1577</string> <key>CustomProperties</key> <array> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>model</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt EX3</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>AAPL,slot-name</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Slot-4</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>name</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt 3 Controller</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>device_type</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt 3</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>IOName</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt</string> </dict> </array> <key>PciAddr</key> <string>03:00.00</string>   3/ my SSDT  SSDT-TB3U2.aml.zip
    • Try using this SSDT without changing the name, it's not necessary rename it, Clover knows that it is, and what is does in the system. Also use DropOEM  as true: <key>DropOem</key> <true/>
