Cool. The startup sound now plays on my laptop with 4855. Without using BootChimeCfg then clearing NVMRAM, I can set the volume and device output variable with Clover. The volume is saved but the device output isn't. So I still have to use BootChimeCfg in order to save all the parameters to NVRAM. 

 

You guys are mad geniuses.

I have a diff, but it based on revision 4853.  I never blame Slice, since he was always faster than me.

This patches contain some fixes for audio volume, port and also device to work with/from GUI and BootChimeCfg.

Please do check -or- take some -or- improve as usual and sync it with latest revision.

[mention=112217]Slice[/mention] audio does not work on the bootloader and there is no option to change the volume to the clover GUI

234198530_Schermata2019-01-21alle09_45_42.thumb.png.056cfe49b046b032d14be6e6473dd51d.png

You mean the volume of the startup sound?

 

Does it work from Shell? Can you test the sound from there?

 

Cause there is an option in Clover’s GUI for that. You can see it in one of my screenshots above. But last time I tried it, it didn’t work very well (reset itself to 0000 when trying to change the volume). So I used BootChimeCfg.efi, accessed from Shell to adjust the volume. It’s a workaround.

 

You have to make sure you’re using the latest build. 4851 had some issues. But 4853 worked perfectly fine for me (aside from the GUI issues I mentioned above).

Can you give me preboot.log?

And wait for next Clover revision with some bugs corrected.

Please take whatever it needs Slice _/|\_

Some notes.

1. I don't like ReallocatePool when we deal with 20*sizeof(HDA_OUTPUTS) bytes. May be 30 but not more.

2. F7 souldn't play sound file because it may absent. It's better to test hardware on a sound we sure to be playable.

3. About gSettings I am not decided finally. Keep only AudioVolume? What about other audio settings?

4. Currently we using gBootChimeVendorVariableGuid as Goldfish64 do. But it is not good for legacy Clover. May be remake to gAppleBootGuid? In this case we got saving audio parameters even with legacy Clover but we will loose original project compatibility.

 

PS. I need some ideas why PlayAsync is not working.

@Slice I switched to 4855 and it works but the audio output does not remain fixed and when restarting it disappears remaining unchecked, then I can not boot via the HDMI because they are still in the process of being true?

 

I send you an example video, also as you can see the start of the clover gui is very slow even in the latest stable version, and pressing U that would be the button to shut down causes a bug.

I switched to Clover r4855 without BootChimeCfg.efi and, as it turned out, Clover immediately writes the wrong value to NVRAM (got index=-1003609600, which cannot be changed without BootChimeCfg.efi). At the same time, it records the correct volume value (volume 90 received). It does not matter whether the audio output settings menu was used or not. In my configuration, hardware NVRAM is running. Therefore, I do not use EmuVariableUefi-64.efi and not nravam.plist :( If I boot from the flash drive which BootChimeCfg.efi and fix the output, then the value (got index = -1003609600) changes to the correct one, and the sound appears before loading Clover.

@Slice

latest clover r4856, everything is good. thank you for update.

can we have chance to reset nvram(F11) lnclude BootChime GUID(initialized like factory)?

is BootChime GUID unique guid for only audiodxe.efi? not common?

 

also can we have chance for boot sound when showing apple log like BootChimeDxe.efi?

 

thanks in advance

 

EDIT1.

in r4856, sound.wav quality is bad. i listened original sound with electronic. i used sound.wav file from clovy theme folder

Personally, I feel like having the startup sound before the UI is more realistic. But...an option to select to play it before or after, yeah, that would be interesting to have. I personally prefer it just the way it is now, meaning before the UI. I feel like it's closer to what real Macs do. But as I said, an option to choose which one you want, that would be interesting.

Honestly, using AudioDxe, BootChimeDxe & BootChimeCfg from @Goldfish64 repo I can hear sound before - after Clover GUI since r4843 w/o issue, except my nvram is going crazy (sometimes).

Hi

 

Sorry for questions for dummies:

  • I can't find internal speakers output in clover audio setting and rear output
  • Clover GUI seems to be slower at startup
  • I can't keep settings after reboot (I only use AptioMemoryFix): I must use emuvariable, Right.

Thanks

3. It would be nice if Clover have own config (plist) including audio device, portindex, and also volumelevel. You may take this as example. User can grab device & port_index values from log and store it to config plist (I have log those values on my prev diff).

4. For nvram values, Clover can read values from gBootChimeVendorVariableGuid (if any) as 1st attempt, read from gAppleBootGuid as 2nd attempt, and fallback to user config plist values as last attempt, then save it to from gBootChimeVendorVariableGuid (+ gAppleBootGuid, meh!).

Have not tried it with Clover yet, will do. (already discussed with dev days ago about async playback here).

@MakAsus @Sherlocks seems you have bad values stored to nvram.

Having those option in Clover is also great. But why you dont just install BootChimeDxe.efi for that purpose?

* AudioDxe will should much more useful to enhanced the GUI like this instead of just greeting sound

1. Well, I think your Realtek ALC892_Headphones should also be your "internal speakers". They're usually paired in switch mode. 

Rear output should probably be Realtek ALC892_LineOut (the first one). Actually, they're most likely all Rear Outs... Just...different ports for different speakers. But the first one is probably mapped as the Green one. So that's why I said the first one.

 

2. Yeah, it's been reported before. It might be intended though... Not sure.

 

3. Mmm...which system are you trying this on? Isn't your system using native NVRAM? If not, I think AptioMemoryFix should be enough. But I'm not sure Clover is working in cooperation with it...yet. If your other NVRAM related settings are saved, I'd say this is probably a Clover issue and it doesn't work with AptioMemoryFix quite yet. I don't know. I might be talking stupid. So don't take my word for it.

 

Thing is, depending on your system, you might or might not need AptioMemoryFix for NVRAM. I do not think you need EmuVariable. And especially you shouldn't be using both at the same time.

  1. I don't think Realtek ALC892_Headphones is Internal speakers and Rear output is not Realtek ALC892_LineOut (the first one). Both don't work in Clover options. Bootchimecfg.efi show Internal speakers in list output, mapped with rear green one.
  2. OK
  3. I don't know if my mobo 'Asus p8z77-v Pro' support native NVRAM. My other settings are saved.

Wait and see others commits :yes:

None of them will work in Clover options. :) That's a bug. If you wanna test them and set your boot chime, you need to use BootChimeCfg from Shell for now. As for your motherboard, I think all motherboards until Skylake (series 100) should have native NVRAM. So the issue might be somewhere else in your case.

I was just finishing compiling Clover when I saw your message. :)) Yeah, Clover 4857's UI seems to work a little better now. I was able to change the volume, without resetting itself, and select different outputs.

 

Things left to fix, for what I could see:

 

1. update the UI according to the previously saved configuration, when entering that menu.

 

Meaning: even though the settings are correctly saved, and the output you select is the one which will be used on the next reboot, it's still not correctly read when coming back to that menu. For example, although I'm using Device Output #8 in that list, when I enter that menu, it still displays the first one in the list as selected.

 

It looks like it's writing correctly to NVRAM, but it's not reading correctly from it. At least when it comes to the selected device output. It does display the volume correctly though. But not the device.

 

2. F7 still doesn't work yet. I understand it might be trickier to fix than it seems. :)

 

So...if you already know which device to choose from that list, yes, you can set it up from that UI and be done with it in a second. But if you don't...you might have to set each one of them individually and see which one works and also, which one suits your needs the best. Similar to what you would currently do using BootChimeCfg actually.

 

Other than that, just like you said: respect! Nice job!

 

Update:

 

Ok, it looks like it's more complicated than it seems in regards to bug nr 1. It DOES display them correctly when coming back to that menu, but for some reason, not all of them... Also, selecting some of them will freeze the UI. More details below.

 

So, these the options I've got. I selected option #8 just because that's what I'm using, not because that's what it was displaying when I opened this menu.

 

Now, all AMD options (options 1-6 in the list) are selectable, though no sound is coming out for this case. I understand this is a limitation of BootChime's implementation..? I could be wrong. Or at least it's not implemented yet. Point is, I'm not gonna say anything about it being functional or not if I'm not sure it should be.

 

Anwyay, selecting any of them will be actually saved and displayed correctly when coming back here. These are the only ones that are displayed. Anything else you select from the list below will be applied (correctly set), but not correctly displayed. Meaning they won't be displayed as selected when coming back to this menu.

 

Option 7 (Intel Haswell HDMI_HDMI) is not correctly displayed. I haven't tested the sound itself, since I'm not using the HDMI port on my motherboard. So it might work, but it probably doesn't, since it's still HDMI and it's not supported yet.

 

Now begins the interesting part:

 

Options 8 and 10 (Realtek ALC892_LineOut) work fine in terms of actual sound, but they're not displayed as selected.

Options 9, 11 and 12 (Realtek ALC892_LineOut and Realtek ALC892_Headphones) will freeze the UI if selected.

Same. 

 

Awesome!

 

Is there a way to get rid of the metallic sound of the wav? It played clearly testing with BootChimeCfg but when hitting F7 in the Clover options and when it plays automatically it is buzzy.  My desktop it plays fine. Stupid laptop.

Hi [mention=112217]Slice[/mention]
Regarding the timezone feature, mine is +8. Should i write +8 or only 8?

Just 8 should be fine. I’m +9.5 and I do just 9 or 10 I can’t remember which.

      Dear all,
       
      I have a external harddisk about 500GB, I installed the clover into it and the harddisk is GPT format, below is the 3 partitions details:
      FS01: EFI - disk0s1 - fat32
      FS02: install mac  image - disk0s2 -  hfs+
      FS03: install windows 10 - disk0s3 - fat32
       
      I can use this external harddisk to install Mac without issue, I use below steps to install windows 10
      enter the FS03:
      cd to efi/boot/ and excuete bootx64.efi
      after pop up the windows install screen, i click next and it shows error 'A media driver your computer needs is missing...' and the installation can not go any further.
      Firstly I use ultraiso to write the windows 10 image to a flash disk and no issue to start install window 10 so the image is working fine. Since I dont know how to write
      a wiindow installation image into harddisk partition, I used winrar extra all the files into disk0s3, am I missing some steps or actually clover not support to install windows
      by partitions, apprecating any helps.

      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      On Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw to modify System/Library. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!

      I just made a clean install of High Sierra on a 1TB crucial ssd. Installed clover Clover_v2.5k_r5070 into the EFI of this ssd, but when I tried to make it my default boot drive, the clover screen wouldn't come up, and left a black screen.
      I tried using the Olarilia usb drive and clover did the same thing.  The only way I can currently boot is to use my old drive with clover v2.4k_4945 then select  my new drive from the clover menu.   
       
      Do I need to install v2.4k on my new drive or is there a way I can get v2.5k working?
       
      I have a GA-x79-ud5 motherboard, AMD  rx580 graphics card and use a Sony 4k tv as my monitor.
