I'm having problems with sleep and my MSI motherboard, and after searching in the logs I found it's related to Unsynchronized TSC. Here other person had the same issue with another motherboard, and Pike determined that the CPU microcode was to blame. Now, I have no idea if it's the same in my case, but I'd like to try. Pike posted a guide for patching the updated microcode that resides in the BIOS, but I know in Linux for example bootloaders and/or the kernel can update the microcode. Is that possible using Clover + XNU?

May be using VoodooTSC.kext?

I'm having a weird issue (maybe its not). 

The thing is that it happened in two different mainboards. Asus H97M-E & GA-Z97M-D3H 

 

I have to untick every dsdt fix on clover configurator in order to have a bootable system. Other than that, not problem. 

 

But when I try to patch AppleHDA I first open DPCIManager to see what codec to use and -sometimes I get it populated and sometimes not-. So I cannot properly use audio_cloverALC-100.command.

 

Using clover 3202.

Re secure boot. The original files were "lost" when Project OS X disappeared.

 

Any chance of a quick setup guide particularly in respect of the computer BIOS and the application to sign the Clover release?

 

Tks in anticipation, as I do not see a thread here.

 

Did you get any further with this, I have to be honest I completely forgot how to implement Secure Boot when we first tested it on Project OS X?!?

Just for report:

 

I use Hibernate Mode here, and with OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi, my wake up and shutdown is very fast than using OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi.

 

Congrats for your hard work Clover Team^_^

@Allan, too bad hibernation doesn't work on many laptops!

 

Yeah is truth, here is appearing many user with this problem.

The most os the users (60%) have Laptop with Haswell CPUs, but with Ivy CPUs (40%) the Hibernation mode works good.

 

My Laptop use Ivy i5 3210M. 

 

I don't want change my hardware too soon, just want to make some upgrades.

Like buy a SSD  :rolleyes:

What is your:

Slide = ( ) value?

Hibernation Mode?

And what driversUEFI you use?

 

I use MacBookPro10,2 SMBios here, and everything works good.

All documentation regarding Hibernation was at ProjectOSX, that unfortunately is down...

 

Proper hibernation depends on many things, CPUPM, GPUPM, ACPI Table, HDD/SDD, including bootloader capability to resume it... And Clover has this capability...

 

But in some cases, there are some tricks that must be used with Clover, like proper slide value, and at OS X, like proper hibernatemode to make it work...

 

The proper slide value apparently (for the most of users) was fixed by using OsxAptioFixDrv2, but you still need some things...

 

For example, you'll never have proper sleep using OsxAptioFixDrv2+slide=0+hibernatemode=0, but maybe using OsxAptioFixDrv2+slide=0+hibernatemode=3...

 

If i'm not wrong, the first successful report from dmazar was using hibernatemode=25 on a regular HDD, but the same settings using a SSD not worked...

 

Let's hope that some of this information can be recovered, and that ProjectOSX can be back again!

What is your:

Slide = ( ) value?

Hibernation Mode?

And what driversUEFI you use?

 

I use MacBookPro10,2 SMBios here, and everything works good.

I tried these:

Slide=0 and slide =8 and slide=100 with hibertationmode=29 (its the only mode that I get to have my desktop running but nothing on screen, i checked with vnc, and other than that it still not usuable, it hangs after the first seconds of waking) every other mode keep hanged on the boot logo with the progress bar under it and my cpu fan start spinning like a jet!

For drivers I replaced VboxHFS with Hfsplus and i selected aptiofix2 nothing else.

But now ive noticed than my hdd is failing (like 6GB of bad blocks!) And hopefully its at the end of the drive) I can still try tho.

And another thing, I use a clover kext patching for Capri drivers, I use IGP4 and the patch adds extra port for hdmi/dp.

I use this in my config.plist too, is not a problem.

RE: hibernation

 

it is working (mostly) on the Lenovo T420 laptop platform with the OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 driver.

  • UEFI Mode
  • pmset hibernatemode=7 (which to my understanding is like mode 3 but not encrypted so it works!)
  • slide=0
  • OsxAptioFix2Drv-64

there is 1 issue -- upon resume from the hibernation image (versus resume from memory), the LCD is black (backlight black) until it goes through 1 sleep/wake cycle - close lid and then open as soon as it is asleep. Then all is fine.  Since this a laptop and I rarely need to resume from the HD (i.e. hibernation image) I have not worried about it until now i when see some discussion on this topic!

 

So anyway, I was curious about the slide values (other than 0) and how that may possibly help the resume?

or anyone has some thoughts or ideas on how to resume from hibernation without blank screen?

InfoPlist Patching

 

There is interesting Clover ability to perform an Info.plist patching on the fly.

Since rev.3154 I should set more strict rules to have a success.

Write into config.plist the follow as example

	<key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>
	<dict>
		<key>KextsToPatch</key>
		<array>
			<dict>
				<key>Comment</key>
				<string>Power state 1 - 0</string>
				<key>Name</key>
				<string>AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB</string>
				<key>InfoPlistPatch</key>
				<true/>
				<key>Find</key>
				<data>PGtleT5Qb3dlclN0YXRlczwva2V5PjxpbnRlZ2VyPjE8L2ludGVnZXI+</data>
				<key>Replace</key>
				<data>PGtleT5Qb3dlclN0YXRlczwva2V5PjxpbnRlZ2VyPjA8L2ludGVnZXI+</data>
			</dict>
		</array>
	</dict>

It corresponds to replace in kext AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext, in its Info.plist the lines

				<key>PowerStates</key>
				<integer>1</integer>

by lines

				<key>PowerStates</key>
				<integer>0</integer>

but original pattern contains symbols "<", ">", "/", LF, TAB, SPACES that impossible to correctly write into config.plist.

So

1. You have to erase all invisible characters from pattern search.

2. Convert <string> to <data>.

The result looks like

attachicon.gifScreen Shot 2015-02-02 at 17.19.48.png

This is only way to do search and replace will be success.

 

Next problem.

If you want to replace DeviceID into IOPCIMatch the you can use this InfoPlistPatch

For example inject unsupported ATI Radeon ID into AMDRadeonX3000.kext. But the kext is not present in kernelcache and the patch will not occur.

In this case you have to boot without caches and Clover will Force load this kext for patching.

 

 

 

I followed you example to make sure that it works because I have never had success with this feature. It did succeed in patching the plist for AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.

 

But......

 

I want to patch /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist

 

find:

				<key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key>
				<string>Config1</string>
 

replace with:

				<key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key>
				<string>none</string>
 

I entered:

 

Name:                                                

AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy  
Find:

<key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key><string>Config1</string> 
Replace:

<key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key><string>none</string> 
Comment:

MacPro6,1 GFX Fix 
I select the check box for "infoPlistPatch" and changed the "Type/Key?" to DATA.

 

I still get this in bdmesg:

KextToPatch 2: AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy (MacPro6,1 GFX Fix) Info.plist patch - invalid Find/Replace data - skipping!
 

I think this feature is still broken for kexts inside of other kext's plugins folders. This might be something to work on.

 

Thanks for all the great work so far!

This errors means Search and Replace strings have different length.

This errors means Search and Replace strings have different length.

 

I also have stumbled upon this. But why? At least for info.plist patches I think this should be possible, or this feature - which I think is great in general! - feels somewhat limited with some usecases (like this one).

This errors means Search and Replace strings have different length.

info.plist patch is extremely useful and it would be great to be able to replace any text with any other. This would be indispensable if Apple ever locks us completely out of SLE. I guess I call it a feature request.

 

thanks again for the great work

      Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?
       
      DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.
       
      Latest beta is 3.1.0b7
      Current Release Version: 3.0.4.



      The system dumps are saved to a folder or your choice, but defaulting to the same directory as the main application. You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.
       
      There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.
       

       
      Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.
       
      The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper:
      - ACPI tables.
      - Audio codec and further info.
      - Boot loaders and configuration files.
      - CPU info.
      - Device-properties.
      - Disk partition structure / info.
      - Disk sectors (hex).
      - DMI (SMBIOS).
      - EDID.
      - I/O Kit Registry.
      - EFI Memory Map.
      - EFI vars (some).
      - Kernel information
      - Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts).
      - Memory.
      - NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables).
      - SMC Keys.
      - LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps.
      - Power (Sleep/Hibernate) settings.
      - RTC.
      - System Profiler.
      - System BIOS.
      - System Log(s).
      - Video BIOS.

      Running DarwinDumper from the command line:
      From Terminal, you can initiate DarwinDumper by running the following script directly.
       
       
       
      /DarwinDumper.app/Contents/Resources/public/bash/script.sh To help with this, the UI has a Symlink option which you can click to create a symbolic link which points to the above script. DarwinDumper can then be subsequently run from the command-line by loading a new Terminal window and typing darwindumper followed by return.

      Install macOS 10.15 Catalina on Gigabyte P55-USB3 with Radeon RX 580 graphics card using a USB device created with the createinstallmedia command and Clover as bootloader. Instructions to install macOS 10.14 Mojave on this computer are almost identical, replacing Catalina app with Mojave, so this article is suitable for both versions of macOS. The Gigabyte P55-USB3 motherboard (and some others from the same brand with the P55 / H55 chipset) have made it easy to build a hackintosh and install macOS since 10 years ago.

      Install macOS Catalina app in /Applications folder USB flash drive with at least 16GB prepared from Disk Utility with MBR partition scheme and formatted as Mac Os Plus (on older Gigabyte boards like mine, USB sticks partitioned with GUID scheme instead of MBR usually hang the system when booting) Recent version of Clover (I have used r5117) Recent versions of Lilu (at least 1.4.4) and WhateverGreen (at least 1.3.9) to fine-tune the behavior of the graphics card Recent version of RealtekRTL8111 (I have used 2.2.2) FaceSMC version 6.26-322 (newer versions disable automatic mounting of USB devices on my system).  
      Create install USB
      Run this command from Terminal (assuming the target device is called USB):
      Bash: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app
      Clover must be installed on the USB memory, I choose the following options:
      Bootloader > Install boot0af on the MBR CloverEFi > CloverEFI 64-bit SATA BIOS Drivers, 64 bit > Recommended drivers > FSInject + SMCHelper + XhciDxe BIOS Drivers, 64 bit > File System drivers > ApfsDriverLoader Install RC scripts on selected volume Optional RC scripts > Disable sleep proxy client.  
      You have to copy 4 kexts to the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the USB device: FaceSMC 6.26-322, Lilu 1.4.4, WhateverGreen 1.3.9 and RealtekRTL8111 2.2.2. Regarding the config.plist file, the most significant is:
      Boot > kext-dev-mode = 1 in Boot arguments GUI > Theme embedded, EmbeddedThemeType Dark, Screen Resolution 1920x1080, Preboot in Hide Volume Graphics > blank, nothing is checked except if foxbox solution is used to have more than 2 connectors enabled RT Variables > 0x28 in BooterConfig and 0x67 in CsrActiveConfig SMBios > iMac14,2 Sytem Parameters> Yes in Inject Kexts and check Inject System ID.  
      Install macOS Catalina

      Boot from the USB device and choose Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina. The installation program runs until the PC restarts. Here choose Install macOS from HDD (the name of the volume you are installing macOS on). With RX 580 graphics card, the screen goes black in this second phase of the installation, it is a phase in which the user has nothing to do until the PC is restarted so you can let it work until the Clover menu again. You have to choose Boot macOS from HDDto boot the installed system from the hard disk, the screen is recovered and you can configure the account and the initial options. From this moment the screen works fine.

      In summary:
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from HDD > black screen Boot from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from HDD > screen works fine.  
      Install Clover and kexts on the hard drive

      Clover needs to be installed on the disk where we just installed macOS. Options are the same as when installing it on the USB memory. You also have to copy the 4 kexts (FaceSMC 6.26-322, Lilu 1.4.4, WhateverGreen 1.3.9 and RealtekRTL8111 2.2.2) into the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder on the EFI partition of the disk. And review the config.plist file remembering the comments for the USB.

      If everything goes well, the computer starts from the hard disk with a running copy of macOS Catalina.

      Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card on macOS High Sierra (as of 10.13.6), Mojave and Catalina on the P55-USB3 board: excellent performance with acceleration (Metal) OOB, no need for drivers (kexts), with 3 drawbacks, one has to do with the boot of the operating system (a solution is proposed), another with the number of rear connectors enabled (a solution is proposed) and another that only affects to one phase of the Mojave or Catalina installation (without clear solution for now).

      I have placed the XFX AMD Radeon RX-580 P8DFD6 8GB Triple X Edition GDDR5, 256BIT, DVI + HDMI + 3DP graphics card on a 10 year old motherboard (Gigabyte P55-USB3) in order to update the hackintosh to 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina because the card that I have used in past years, Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 1GB, has stopped working after 10.13.6 High Sierra since this was the last version for which Nvidia published the alternate web drivers that were necessary for the card to work well with graphic acceleration.

      The new RX 580 card needs considerably more space than the old one although it fits perfectly in an ATX case, and requires an additional power connector. It has 2 big fans that most of the time are stopped, at least in my case. In macOS it works perfectly, even with Metal acceleration, without additional drivers and without extra settings in Clover. But it has drawbacks that I comment below.

      Alterations during startup

      During the boot of the operating system, when the screen goes from the basic driver to the AMD driver, 2 artifacts appear randomly, they are very short in duration (from one to a few seconds):
      Very short flashing white screen that may or may not be accompanied by purple lines The fans runs for a few seconds (the noise is clearly audible). This behavior is solved with the installation of 2 kexts, Lilu and WhateverGreen. Lilu is an extension created by acidantheraand vit9696 among others whose function is to help to patch kexts, processes and libraries during macOS boot. It is accompanied by specific plugins for the task required, for example WhateverGreen that injects necessary patches for certain AMD, Intel and Nvidia graphics cards. It is mandatory to have both extensions together, one of them separately does not correct the problem.
      I have installed Lilu 1.4.4 and WhateverGreen 1.3.9 in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the EFI partition and artifacts have disappeared. Remember that these 2 extensions are not necessary for the card to work properly, if you tolerate those very brief distortions of the screen or the noise of the fans running for a few seconds, you can live without Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Note: authors recommend that when using Lilu and WhateverGreen with Radeon cards, NO graphic settings have to be added to Clover (Inject ATI, etc.).

      Note: these alterations, especially the brief white screen and less frequently purple lines and fan noise, are also seen in Windows and some real Macs with the same card.

      Alteration during macOS installation

      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from MacintoshHD > black screen
      Booting from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from MacintoshHD > screen works fine.

      In the first and third stages, screen works fine. In the second stage the screen goes black although the installation continues. The user has nothing to do at this moment so you can leave the PC working until the Clover menu is shown again, the screen is recovered, the initial account options can be configured and you can enter into the newly installed system with correct resolution and acceleration.
      This behavior is not corrected even by placing Lilu and WhateverGreen into the USB device. At least in my case I have not found a solution for it. Yo can install macOS perfectly with that drawback of not seeing how it progresses during the second phase of the installation.

      Only 2 connectors of the 5 available work

      This card has 3 Display Port (DP) ports, 1 HDMI port and 1 DVI port. In my case, only 2 DP work, those that are further from the HDMI connector. It is enough if you use a single monitor or 2 monitors that can be connected by DP. But if you want to have 3 or more connected devices or some of them only have HDMI, it is necessary to enable the 5 connectors or at least 4 of them since the DVI is obsolete and does not allow resolutions as high as DP and HDMI.
      User foxbox has proposed a solution in a thread titled [Solved] Sapphire RX 580 Nitro + SE | black screen on HDMI and DVI. Must inject from Clover a modification to the Orinoco framebuffer (which is used in the RX 580 card) so that the 5 connectors lack a fixedly assigned address and, instead, receive it dynamically. This change is made from the KextsToPatch section of Clover. Read the post from foxbox.
      This has to be accompanied by 3 changes in the Graphics section of Clover: Orinoco in FB Name / Inject ATI / 5 in Video Ports. I have tested this solution in macOS Catalina and it effectively enables the 5 ports of the card but, since I only use 1 monitor, I have removed it and I am with Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Bonjour,
       
      Je rencontre un souci depuis la dernière maj supplémentaire catalina 10.15.4, même chose pour la 10.15.5 aujourd'hui : après le début de l'update, lorsque le pc redémarre, je ne vois pas le volume d'installation dans les volumes de l'écran de boot clover (v5118). j'ai juste Preboot dans les volumes cachés au démarrage, et j'ai essayé de les afficher, le préboot de l'install apparait bien mais le boot n'aboutit jamais par ce biais. du coup, je suis bloqué en 10.15.4. Auriez-vous une idée du problème ?

      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:
                                    
                       -/+:.          ningnan@ningnandeMacBook-Air

      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro. EFI_HZ550.zip
