Hello..

 

because I cannot start a new topic in Clover, I post it here..

 

My DUAL XEON Build is working, but unresponsive and laggy like hell.. And therefore absolutely unusable..   :wallbash:

 

I´m already trying for many weeks to solve the problem, and think it may be due to the CPU settings. Perhaps especially DUAL XEONs need to be particularly well configured and it occurred to me QPI and BusSpeed.

 

http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Configuration/CPU#cpu_qpi

 

Which settings should I use? Because the description on Clover WIKI is confusing me..

 

Specs / XEON E5-2680 v3

 

Intel QPI Speed: 9.6 GT/s

# of QPI Links: 2

 

http://ark.intel.com/products/81908/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-2680-v3-30M-Cache-2_50-GHz

 

Specs / Asus Z10PE-D8 WS

 

https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z10PED8_WS/specifications/

 

 

Another problem is, that Clover cannot correctly detect all eight 4GB RDIMMs. Therefore I had to insert them manually into the config.plist. Without, Clover only detects two RDIMMs, which is resulting in over 200000% memory pressure!

 

In config.plist I tried Trust, FixSBUS and Halt Enabler.

Thank for the responds.

Here i upload image about version of my FakeSMC / Clover.

It's looks my Notebook (Asus A455LF-WX016D) has same problem too. And i use same File 

Maybe there is miss configurations, but i don't know what it's.

What should i upload to analyze this problem, because it's random. Sometimes it boot nicely without hard reset when kernel panic about FakeSMC.

I think you need to manually copy the driver into the appropriate clover subfolder for where it loads its kexts in EUFI mode bootup if your planning on using Clover to boot up your system. I went as far using genffs to convert that driver into a module I plugged into my bios with mmtool. That module now is hosted on Win-Raid. If your having space problems I recommend deleting non essential modules from your bios or using tools like ozmtool to compress your bios files. Then insert it and then you can boot from EUFI mode.

Got my Samsung 950 pro.  Install went well just updated clover.  Then threw in NvmExpressDxe-64.efi into the 'drivers64UEFI' folder (even though the installer doesn't allow that, had to install it on a USB stick with BiosblockIO then get the driver NvmExpressDxe-64.efi and throw it in 'drivers64UEFI' folder).  After that I threw the NVMeGeneric.kext into Kext folder for clover.  Booted to a OS X installer USB stick used restore option with Disk utility to copy me oldssd install and booted up 950 pro just fine from the EFI boot loader on OldSSD.  Then installed clover with EFI on the 950 pro, transferred over all my files from my clover folder under EFI partition from old SSD to 950 pro EFI partition.  Now booting with just 950 pro with EFI.

 

I'm very surprised EFI boot works with my old board with no bios update.  I still have my same 4.6ghz overclock running a much older 4205 bios version on Rampage IV Extreme x79 with 3930K (Sandybridge-E).  This was not support to be possible.  I see threads were people are having issues with it showing up as EFI drive.  Other people says it shows up as PATA.  But not mine it showed as EFI drive.  Again this was with no bios mods, or bios updates, just same old bios been using for years.  Clover EFI doing all the work  :)

 

My speeds on old SSD were around 480 read and 410 write.  Now doing 2050 Read and 880 write.

 

Edit : edited post its actually even older bios 4205 released in mid 2013.  I don't have much desire to update bios because the clock speeds were really nice and stable.  I was doing 4.9ghz in windows.

Does anybody know, what the following message means (Clover Boot Log)?

 
4:243  0:000  Out of control with CPU numbers
 
Could this be related to the fact that my system is so extremely unresponsive and laggy?
 
Please look the attached Clover Boot Log..

Your DSDT contains 31 processors nodes (... And CP1F...). It is too many.

Are you sure VoodooTSC is needed and helpful?

Your CPU

#define CPUID_MODEL_HASWELL_SVR		0x3F

is supported in ElCapitan so you need no to do FakeCPUID.

My system is working without VoodooTSC. I removed the kext, but still extremely unresponsive and sluggish with nvda_drv=1..

 

I did the FakeCPUID, because stinga11 described it here:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309717-haswell-e-5820k-5930k-installation-guide-with-full-speedstep-working/

 

I attached the Boot Log without using VoodooTSC, FakeCPUID and DSDT..

 

Do you need more info / files to locate the problem?

Do I need Clover FixDsdtMask Calculator? Because I have Clover configurator 4.25..

FixDSDTMask Calculator determine your only serves to mask that you validate with Clover Configurator

put nothing in Patcher

I think you should put "VoodooTscSync" and "NullcpupowerManager" in EFI / kext / other

Slice: Your HWSensors3 link - the packaged FakeSMC kext is using the old 03022015 version. If I choose not to install the FAKESMC inside the HWSensors3 installer will these plugins still work with the latest 618 Fakesmc?

 

Edit: Oh I just noticed this from Chris: 

HWSensors EFI v6.18.1394.pkg v3

Your fan RPM sensor looks great :D

 

But,, for the kext can't detect my Nvidia GTX960 chipset,, i see the error log.

 

Can you take a look Slice

 

Edit : My board use ITE IT8628E not ITE87xx, can you add sensor for this too???

Anyone know how to enable usb 3.0 NEC Renesas ports with Clover? This is on a P8z68 Deluxe. I've tried flashing Lacie and Sonnet device ids but with limited results and about to give up.

What do you mean by enable? Do they not work at the bootscreen? If it's just that they aren't working in OS X, then this isn't a Clover issue. AFAIK those controllers won't work with AppleUSBXHCI without patching (which doesn't work in 10.11), so you need to use (at the very minimum) PXHCD (the LaCie USB 3.0 drivers). You could also try GenericUSBXHCI. Note that you need 10.11.2+.

I thought Clover injects USB information though not sure in what capacity. As far as my Nec usb 3.0 ports are concerned had partial success. The The Lacie PXHCD can load usb 2.0 drives but 3.0 drives are ignored. Must be some sort of a restriction that needs to be removed. Not sure how. Sorry if off topic.

Hi,

When I boot my system normally apple logo and loading bar always coming after Clover boot screen. But now never coming totally black now.

Here is the my steps. Start my system clover boot screen coming auto boot counting then turn screen as black (Normally coming apple logo and loading bar here) waiting and system opening. Why this apple logo and loading bar disappear suddenly?

Anybody know how to fix it?

Anyone tried the EFI version of MemTest86 lately, when starting it from Clover menu? Seems that this does not work anymore. If booting directly from USB stick it works. The main screen still shows up, but the actual test results in a black screen. Since Clover was the only thing changed in between, there might be a regression. Updating MemTest also did not help.

I really need help from a kind soul.  I've searched and searched and searched as to a tutorial that tells you what goes where. I Have an ASUS Aspire 5600U that is running 10.11.2.  The install went well, using a well documented Install processand I end up with a fast bootable System that is lacking Bluetooth,Camera,Sound and wifi.  My understanding is that using clover install the System folder is invisible and empty.  I get that.  I can also mount the EFI partition.  I also understand that many of the fixes go in /Library/Extensions but whatever system I use to install the modified kexts,  none of the device drivers get installed.  PLEASE could someone please point me to a tutorial that says what goes where and the logic behind it.  I'm obviously missing something basic here so could someone please communicate and give me a clue.  Thank You and Happy New Year

So you got it booting straight from Clover on the 950 Samsung drive? Your sure the bootloader isn't on some other drive? I tried all weekend to get El Cap booting up from my Intel 750 but I needed to mod the bios with the Clover NVMEexpress driver for like Windows boot manager to be seen otherwise I had to have Clover on a usb key to boot my drive. In anycase could not get Capitan to successfully load into a partition I created using carbon copy on the Intel 750 using Clover to boot and the Macvidcards NVME express driver installed. Would stop halfway through after initializing the usb ports while I watched the  verbose boot logs stall out.No idea why.

 

Anyhow have you tried to boot Windows? I would go duel boot if I was you. Have both Windows and Cap side by side. Only thing is I can throw clover into the windows system efi folder just fine by copying the files into its own folder and creating a boot reference to Clover but can no way to install biosblockio without writing boot files to the partition from the Clover install. I even tried making a biosblockio boot Clover usb key but that failed horribly to go past three lines of text on the screen. Don't even use biosblockio of booting cap anyhow but wonder if its possible to separate biosblockio as an independant kext?

 

Thanks.

      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu 
       
       
       
      STEP 3 - Stop Windows Boot manager from overriding Clover boot manager
       
      How to stop Windows boot manager from overriding your Hackintosh Clover boot manager when using dual booting between macOS and Windows

      OK, I've searching for days trying to gather up the tools to make my current install work correctly. I'm well on my way. But all the links to the things I currently must have were apparently nuked "during a forum upgrade". :(
      As far as EFI Studio goes; I can find many links to it. But for Insanelymac, they're broken (due to the upgrade), or for the Netkas site, they're links to either Rapidshare, or Mediafire that also no linger exist. I see many users here indicating that they used it to tweak their DSDT. But the web (google/duckduckgo), Instanelymac, and Netkas seem to have no idea where it's gone.
      Could some kind soul please share a copy, or a link? I'm a loooong time hacker, and would love to bring it back to life. In fact, I'd love to improve it -- or at least bring it up to current times. If only I knew where it was.
      Thank you for all your time, and consideration.

      This was spurred on from a discussion in the Clover General thread. Where there was a debate on bcdedit being able create/read/edit (U)EFI Boot entries. I didn't think it appropriate to post all this information there and somebody may want to make use of this and its likely to get lost in that massive thread.
       
      Out of curiosity I decided to see if I could create an EFI entry using bcdedit. What can I say I like a challenge.  Whilst is not a documented method by Microsoft, as it turns out in a round about way it IS possible to create an EFI entry using bcdedit and these are the steps I went through to add UEFI Shell located on a USB stick to the EFI entries. 
       
      Third party software is available that can create and edit UEFI entries from Windows with better support and more features. I'm just making this information available in case those options are unavailable. 
       
      DISCLAIMER - This is not a supported method. Use at your own risk. I recommend backing up your BCD/Firmware variables/settings beforehand.
       
      1) Copy {bootmgr} entry.
      C:\Windows\System32>bcdedit /copy {bootmgr} /d "UEFI Shell" The entry was successfully copied to {34e8383c-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5}. 2) Edit the new entry using the new GUID bcdedit generated in the copy step.
        a) Set the device and path for UEFI shell on my USB stick.
      bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} device partition=G: bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} path \EFI\SHELL\SHELLX64.efi   b) Clean up some of the stuff that was copied from {bootmgr} (optional as far as I can tell, just makes things tidier in bcdedit)
      3) Put the new EFI entry first in boot order. (optional)
       
      After completing the steps above, here is what "bcdedit /enum firmware" shows:
       
      I shutdown my computer and when I turned my computer back on it booted up into UEFI Shell. After exiting the shell my PC went on to boot Windows.
      Here is the resulting dump using "bcfg boot dump -v" from that shell:
       
      You may notice that the shell shows as "Windows Boot Manager" in the bcdedit output. This I believe is because of the "WINDOWS" at the beginning of the option data that bcdedit added to the EFI Boot entry. I also believe this why bcdedit shows my Windows 8 installation as "Firmware Application" because it has no option data. I don't know how to remove this data using bcdedit nor do I know how the option data, that bcdedit adds, will affect other EFI applications.

      There might be a way to create the EFI entry without copying the Windows entry but if there is I'm unable to find any documentation on how one would do so. If you use the create command then it just puts it in the BCD and I'm unaware of a way to tell it to create it in EFI instead, other than by doing the above.

      Small tool to download, compile and build the latest Clover X64 package.
       
       
       

      The script inside is editable.

       
      Enjoy...
       
      Many thanks to the comrade SunKi for help with creating the script.

      Hey!
      As I have 3 Monitors connected, my RX 570 gets arround 50°C while ideling/ web browsing etc. The problem is, that this temp is apparently just the threshold, when the fans start to spin. So the fans start spinning for a minute then they stop for a while again... This is very annoying for me as the rest of my hackintosh is nearly quiet (SSD, 120mm low RPM cpu fan, nearly silent PSU,...), especially when Im using the pc to revise for school. Does somebody know wether its possible to "change" the threshold till the fans start spinning? Like it would probably not be a problem for the gpu at all, if the temp rises to 55°C but therefore be soundless....
