To Mickey1979 and Tluck,

 

Honestly I can't recall how the partitions were originally created as far as Chimera being there once or just a virgin install followed by Clover install. Though I probably used Diskutility app to create GUID partition scheme  with a standard case insensitive HFS partition where I would have installed El Capitan. Every now and then I may have used Carbon copy cloner to copy one partition from one disk to another freshly created backup disk, and then ran the Clover installer upon it to recreate the efi partition. My diskutil list commands always produced disk layouts that looked like the one above you posted Tluck. There would be the EFI EFI disk1s1 partition, the Apple HFS partition, and the Recovery partition just like you described and I swear the EFI partition was  fat32 according to Diskutil info.

 

So the problem I was trying to solve originally was that no matter what disk I selected to boot from on the bios boot menu the config.plist and theme was being loaded from the first disk in the system as opposed to separate independant installs. Not only that in the EFI shell booted straight from bios (or within the UEFI booted Clover bootloader) some of my disks were missing and I couldn't create UEFI boot entries using BCFG until I formated the EFI partition using: newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/disk0s1 and then reinstalling Clover and setting the boot0af option on the Clover install dialogue. After that even the UEFI Clover Bootloader was able to see the other installs and even better loading config.plist and theme from the selected UEFI bios boot option.

 

This system is running an old Asus Z68 Deluxe motherboard that doesn't have the best UEFI support and compatibility even with the supplied Clover EFI shell efi program. Theres a special shellx64 efi program I found thats compatible so if anyone else is having this issue you need it. Any I suspected perhaps it was an UEFI compatibility issue or the disk signature was at fault but I also read that EFI shells only can view fat32 formated partitions. So I thought it was the msdos fat32 patition at fault and I thought it would be useful for clover installer to format the EFI partition when installing upon a fresh install to prevent this kind of a problem.  I mean I'm not an expert and it was just an idea Mickey so please forgive me if I am in error.

 

Thanks.

Hello guys,

 

from https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Configuration/Devices#FakeID

 

This substitution will work if InjectATI (Nvidia, Intel) is set. Or if FixDsdtMask set for the device.

Likewise, the IMEI fix will only work if the DSDT Patch AddMCHC_0008 is enabled.

Does this mean the SATA FakeID will only work if FixSATA_0400 is set?

Thanks.

my hibernate mode become 3 (presumably when I upgraded to Sierra) by mistake. So today on wake from sleep I get a panic. no big deal. but quickly i found out there is a sleep image when i restart.

 

Im on Clover 3786 and it will not ignore the sleep image. I hit space bar and check hibernate wake. right? what am i missing.  ( i turned hibernate off for now)  but there used to be an option to get around hibernation image if desired. (mode  7 works for hibernation if i need/want it). i had to boot from another disk and manually remove /var/vm/sleepimage

 

maybe a bug? if so move to appropriate topic. thanks

I have same issue about hibernate.

 

Can you use hibernate wake option?

 

It means system with hibernate can booting. If my system have hibernate status(sleep or deep sleep or etc), i cant booting with "hibernate wake" option. My system isnt work hibernate mode.

 

Therefore i have to use "cancel hibernate wake". This option exist in OLD GUI.

 

 

I reported this issue. But surely not clear now in latest clover.

@Slice and gurus,

 

Any suggestions on the patch APIC for dual cpus?

 

And if memory is set trough smbios will that somehow effect the system?

Morning folks,

 

Does anyone use the "Slot" feature for adding entries to the PCI section of the System Information screen without a DSDT as I am struggling to make it fully work and would appreciate any tips!

 

This is how it currently look when trying to add my Apple WiFi card...

If "Hibernate wake" is unchecked then it means "Cancel Hibernate Wake".

Not? Can you provide debug.log in this case to find a mistake?

@D-an-W: I use it for injecting my gfx card slot. It works fine with this:

		<key>Slots</key>

				<string>NVidia</string>
				<key>ID</key>
				<integer>1</integer>

At first it didn't work, but it did when I used ReuseFFFF.

bios boot to legacy clover,razer deathadder mouse works well,razer cynosa keyboard stop work,need unplug and plug razer deathadder to let it work,it is not relate to usb legacy mode,which is bios emulate ps/2 with usb,turn off usb legacy support doesn't effect clover deactive razer deathadder mouse,but keyboard doesn't work while press esc boot menu and chameleon select boot disk menu keyboard
I can use chameleon instead of,because it works on razer deathadder mouse and razer cynosa keyboard,and it works on gtx 650 ti boost,but mac app store can't work because chameleon can't built in lan.and chameleon can't patch applertc

Thanks, I just added ReuseFFFF but It didn't make any difference.

 

Do you use a DSDT with your system as Slice does say it needs the _SUN entry for it to work and I don't have one to add it to?

 

This is how mine looks now...

I also have to have this Airport fix to make the slot show up in the PCI section at all...

in your config.plist put debug = true

Your debug log appears in EFI/CLOVER/MISC

No, for the Z68 I only have a Clover plist. I don't know if I already had a _SUN entry or if FixDisplay_0100 added it.

I'm attaching preboot/debug logs from Clover as well as:

Looks like index is different, sorry if/most likely I'm talking out of my a$$ without understanding {censored}.

 

 

Also is there a way for a Clover to detect both CPUs?

 

 

Thanks a lot,

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.
       
      EFI DIRECTORY
      http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=97606131925137056003
       
      HARDWARE
      CPU: Intel i5-8600K 3.6GHz hexacore (contains UHD 630 iGPU)
      CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim (no paste needed, and fan facing front)
      Mobo: GIGABYTE z370 AORUS Gaming 5 (WIFI)
      RAM: 1x 8GB CORSAIR Vengeance LPX C16 2666MHz (in first slot)
      GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE
      SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4)
      HDD: generic
      DVD Drive: generic
      PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!)
      Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III
      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
