It supports speed step for Server processor Xeon E5-2697v2 12 core ivy processor?  I tried plugintype=true and no speed step. It’s stuck at 1.2ghz. 

 

I found this quote from another thread for X79 motherboards for controlled speedstep, but that is back from 2014 so Clover has made a lot of changes since then, clover did not have this plugintype option and now does but does it have the values for this specific processor to make speedstep work?

 

we need a extra power state at least 1MHz above our max power state and a extra power state at least 1MHz below our lowest reachable power state. Without these extra states we would never fully reach the lowest or highest state. The "-w 3" in the command below creates the extra states above and below max and min.

 

ssdtPRGen.sh -c 1 -w 3 -turbo 3500

 

There are two keys that need set, so I don't know to which one you're referring. Just set them as I said.

 

EDIT: If you need a special SSDT for cpu pm, then I don't really see what the difference is. Add the plugintype to that SSDT. Clover is just doing the same thing but dynamically so it's technically probably faster and gives better results to generate your own instead of letting clover do it since it tends to under power states since it's not based on the actual package TDP.

Who is the owner of this DSDT patch?? Must i get permission to use this patch???

 

I don't know what you mean. No one is asking for anyone to get permission to use a patch as far as I know, and if they are then they are an a s s h a t.

I will be using Clover in my New system, after I've bought it and set it up, so you will be seeing quite a lot of me.

Hi guys,

i'm not able to inject a custom EDID using clover.

I've tried several methods but when i check IODisplayEDID in IOREG the EDID is always equal to the original one.

I know Clover has a function to inject EDID but even if i'm using it it's like is not working.

Could someone point me in the right direction ?

Note : I'm also using Lilu + Whatevergreen

 

Thanks

Mattia

When will Clover get a 19,1 and 19,2 SMBIOS profiles?

 

Can I make my own, is the board number or anything else critical or just there for sake of completeness?

Why cant I see the Shell tool anymore? I checked my Scan settings Entries and Tools are active but I cant see the Shell tool. I also make this Auto but I still cant see. Is this a bug or should I use different settings or key combination on the boot area?

No issue here with Legacy / UEFI, Shell is well detected. Plz make sure that your Theme contains: ..\icons\tool_shell.png

$ bdmesg | egrep "revision|Shell"
0:100  0:000  Starting Clover revision: 4915 on American Megatrends EFI
7:936  0:025  found tool \EFI\CLOVER\tools\Shell64U.efi

#EDIT: If I still remember w/o "tool_shell.png" from theme, Shell should be detected but using icon from "embedded".

I am really don't get it why I am not seeing this tool. I checked my custom them which has tool_shell.png even I removed the custom theme and used EmbeddedThemeType but nothing changed. Here are my settings under the GUI section;

Re-check your config.plist using PlistEdit or any XML Editor apps, not Clover Configurator. Go to GUI section.

I did but nothing changed. I made No with PlistEdit and restart then make Yes and restart but nothing change. It is weird. Thanks, @Badruzeus Maybe I must re-create new config.plist with PlistEdit!

I need help about Timezone.

 

My Windows show UTC +3 but if windows watch shows 4 pm after restart BIOS watch shows 1 pm.  I tried -3 on timezone it gives me dark theme on daylight. I tried just 3 it gives me a light theme but it didn't change the dark at night. Which timezone I must use? I am so confused.

This probably belongs in the themes topic or general topic but have you tried no timezone? What does your boot log say your time is? Are you sure your timezone is not set in firmware but it shows UTC?

There is a bug, whoever wrote this did not read the specification of TimeZone member of EFI_TIME, it has valid values of -1440 to 1440, and 2047. Also timezones don't go 0 to 24, they go -24 hours to +24 hours but that member field is in minutes, not hours:

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/HEAD/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/refit/main.c#l2007

 

EDIT: Fixed for revision 4916.

 

EDIT2: Found another bug, probably no effect but still, fixed 4917:

I was very excited to see that 4918 had the new Mac definitions 19,1 & 19,2, unfortunately, I can't seem to select them in Clover Configurator.  Is this a bug or does something else need to be updated?

Clover configurator is a third party tool, it's always behind new features. Quit relying on it so much and just edit the configuration file, it's just an XML text file, lol.

 

I get what you're saying but I support a lot of people in a thread and it really is best for us.  Not everybody has your level of proficiency.  I also really like the graphical interface, after all, isn't it what Macs are all about?  :-)

 

I also really like the serial number tools.

We do NOT develop clover configurator, so saying anything about it here is off topic. If you can't learn XML, you should not be doing this... If you don't want to edit it directly you can use PLIST editor from Xcode, to just add/edit key(s) and dictionary(ies)/value(s).

I understand that and I am perfectly comfortable editing plists.  In fact, the Nuvoton NCT6798D & NCT679BD sensors that I added to the VirtualSMC package was merged this morning.  Don't get me wrong, it can't even be called programming but my point is that I have no issues with editing a .plist, I was merely talking saying GUI tools are nice.

 

I was in no way trying to upset or offend you.

I'm certainly not upset or offended, was merely trying to say that this is the wrong place to get changes made to clover configurator. And if you needed to make changes that aren't in clover configurator yet, you need to edit the configuration directly. Also, clover configurator causes problems as many keys have one behavior if the key is not specified and different behavior if it is specified with a value. In other words, even boolean values have a third option, not being present and it changes behavior, but clover configurator uses only two state checkboxes, not three.

Why not work together with the guy who made Clover Configurator and help him make it better?

 

We seem to be really good at pointing out flaws rather than coming up with solutions.

 

I'm sorry if this came out rude. But if the amount of people asking for help with Clover Configurator is no indication of how much people want such a tool, then I don't know what is.

 

I get it that this is not the place to ask for help regarding 3rd party tools. But considering there is no official tool for that, made by the same people who made Clover itself, people who obviously know everything about it, then what choices do regular people have?

 

Editing the plist manually (in Sublime, for example) is definitely doable, but I wouldn't call that user-friendly. Not to mention, in case you want to add something, you need to know what that is (which is not obvious), where and how to add it. So having all the possible options laid out nicely in the UI is definitely a plus. And, sorry to say this but Clover Configurator did a better job of keeping up with the changes in Clover itself than Clover Wiki page. So, unless you follow up with everything that's changing in Clover, you won't know what options do you have. And please don't suggest reading through the entire Clover Changes thread just to see that. Nobody's got time for that.

 

PlistEdit Pro is another good option to edit plists. But it also doesn't give you options on what you can add. It only reads what's already saved on the plist. So..again, you need to know what you're looking for, and add it correctly. Which most people won't know. Same as Xcode. Which, if you're not developing anything (as a regular user), you don't need it. Not to mention it's taking a lot of space and it's a pain in the rear to remove. So I wouldn't recommend this just for editing plists.

 

What I'm trying to say (and I see this with a lot of developers) is that what's very comfortable for you to use (cause you're used to it, you probably do this every day, and you have plenty of experience with it) isn't the same for other people. I would say most people. If you need an engineering degree to use a tool, then not many people will. Simply because most people are not engineers. That's all I'm saying.

      Hi.
      I apologize in advance if I didn't post in the right category and if my title and description aren't specific enough :c
       
      My config in a nutshell:
      CPU: i7 5820k GPU: MSI GTX 1060 3GB RAM: 16 GB MOBO: MSI X99 SLI PLUS I attached RunMe output with all the details of my built.
       
      Some background:
      I have my Hackintosh for about half a year. That time I managed to make it works and fix major issues, but some of them left unresolved since then and I ignored them until now.
      I use my Hackintosh for Adobe projects (PR, AE, PS, IL, AU and a lot more) - most of them connected with video editing of course browsing with Chrome and other small tasks.
       
      Problems:
      Random restarts - this is the biggest one. I'm starting to work on bigger and bigger projects and at this time I think I can't allow this to happen that often. In the past, they happened like once a day or a couple of times a week. However, now it's just frustrating when it happens even 5 or more times a day. I've tried to observe and find out what can be the cause but I haven't managed to find any connections. I thought it happens when Premiere or another app is using GPU, but I haven't seen increased usage when it restarts. I think that it can be connected with GPU, memory or PSU or... meh, anything else. I don't have resources to check if it'll work with other components. There should be some fix for this. I will really appreciate any help with this :c Restart instead of shutdown & sleep doesn't work. I've tried to look through some Google results for this and tried many solutions (as you can see in attached Clover folder), but I think the right one for many of these issues is to make my own DSDT. Glitches, freezes and other things while encoding a video. It happens very often when I try to do this. Maybe it is an issue with GPU or (hopefully) only with GPU drivers which can be fixed with some patch. Today my headphones stopped working. I have a multi-output device configured in the Audio MIDI Setup app which includes my headphones (HyperX Cloud via USB) and Soundflowerbed virtual audio device for capturing system audio. Today while I was trying (like 15 times) to encode a video in Media Encoder in the background and watch video on YouTube I stopped hearing anything from my system. Of course, it restarted a couple of times as always, but even this didn't solve this. If I plug them directly with mini jack (not via USB Soundcard which was in the box and which I always used) in the front IO or the back I only hear some loud noise It takes EX-Fat formatted volumes a few minutes to mount after each restart. I found a workaround to format it with NTFS since I have Tuxera installed and I will reformat these volumes when I will find time for this, but maybe there is some fix for this. GPU is a little bit hot. HW Monitor shows it is only 45-55 degrees, but for my hand is a little bit hot, idk. Also related to GPU - glitch after POST but before entering Clover boot menu. It is a black screen with little white squared glitches for a few seconds. Maybe it indicates the GPU drivers are loading, but maybe it shouldn't be like this. And if I can ask about that - I can't make all applications hide on startup. I, obviously, have "Hide" checkbox checked on every login item in settings, but it doesn't work, none of the apps is hidden in the dock. Is there a way to fix this? Also a small but annoying problem - I can't turn off permanently Mojave update notification (since I tried to install it, and I had to reverse to High Sierra because I had a black screen and I didn't have time for repairing all of them. Tags are not working in Finder - every time I tag a file or folder and make a change in it (for example save a text file) the tag disappears.  
      So, with knowing all of that, is there a way to make a proper DSDT file for my Hackintosh? I tried to look through some guides on how to make it but I think I reached my abilities to understand how Mac OS works and what all of these things are, so I'm asking you guys politely, would someone like to help me? At least with these random restarts? :/
      I really begin to think that I'm a newbie in configuring all of that Clover things - even after what I managed to do with my PC. Help me, pleease... :c
       
      If you have any questions post it below, I will really appreciate any help <3

      - Download the install zip (bootpack & postinstall): Click here -> acer_aspire_v591g_installfiles.zip
      Installation:
      - 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!
      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.
       

       
      Before updating to a new version of Mojave 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)
      Mojave & 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)!

      TLDR:
      I'm trying to boot MacOS on a Chromebook without UEFI. I'm stuck at getting the bootloader (Chameleon/Clover) to work.  
      My setup / context:
      I have an Acer Chromebook Spin 13.
      Available ports:
      2 x USB-C 1 x USB-A 3.0 MicroSD Slot No USB A 2.0 (I've read that Clover has problems with USB 3.0) Firmware:
      There's no UEFI firmware available and by default, it doesn't even allow booting anything other than ChromeOS. Thanks to MrChromebox (big shoutouts!), I flashed a custom legacy bios that allows me to boot anything linux related. This bios is flashed into the RW_LEGACY section of the existing bootloader (coreboot afaik) and doesn't have any configuration options. If I have to change a setting, I could try compiling his bios payload myself with the specific setting enabled.  
      What I've tried so far:
      Chameleon attempts:
      Only selected setting was "Install chameleon on the chosen path", rest was unselected.
       
      1 - Install chameleon first without restoring the basesystem:
      Output:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: done
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_BEFORE".
       
      2 - Install Chameleon after restoring the base system:
      Output:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: doneboot1: /boot       <- Exactly like that, no line break in between
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down)
       
      I haven't been able to reproduce #2 after wiping the drive and doing the same thing again. Subsequent attempts have resulted in either #1 of either Chameleon or Clover.
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_AFTER".
       
      Clover attempts:
      I tried multiple settings and configurations, but all of them boiled down to either one of these.
       
      1 - Doesn't do anything, just hangs at "Booting from usb..."
      2 - Boots into the blue/grey mode as shown in the attached images.
      According to MrChromebox, this could be an old Tianocore DUET It doesn't detect anything (cpu frequency, ram, partitions or disks)  
      I've read pretty much every article, github readme and other types of documentation for coreboot, tianocore, clover, chameleon and MrChromebox' rw_legacy payloads and right now, I'm totally clueless as to what to try next...
       
      A few questions that came up:
      Why does chameleon hang? What is it looking for, /boot was clearly written to the disk by the Chameleon installer? What exactly is the blue/grey image? According to MrChromebox, it could be Tianocore DUET Where does it come from? Clover? The mainboard itself? Why does the blue/grey thing not detect my processor frequency or any partitions/drives? Can I use some sort of DUET bootloader to chainload Clover?  
      If you guys could answer any of them or if you have any other guesses or information as to what's happening, I'd be really happy!

      Short Version:
      I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?
       
      More Detail:
      I've done a few hacks so far and this never happened. (Gigabyte z370 / 8700k / Vega, Asus z390 / i5-9600k / 1080). Now, I'm setting up a ThinkPad X1 Gen 6. (Yes, I do expect problems on laptops, but that's not the question).
       
      Mojave 10.14.4 now boots from the internal SSD. So far, so good. Here's the problem.
       
      I installed Mojave on a USB drive (for backup / rescue) and copied the entire EFI partition of my boot drive to the EFI partition on the USB drive. So... I should be able to boot from the USB drive, right? Wrong. Ran Clover installer on the USB itself. Same outcome.
       
      With F12, I can boot from the USB into Clover and select the OS on the USB. The boot sequence hangs on End Random Seed, but before the usual '++++++++' line.
      So, boot into Clover on internal boot drive, then select OS on USB. Same thing.
       
      Read the forums, I saw the posts about AptioMemoryFix, so I tried the various other drivers on the USB. No go.
       
      I haven't found the solution yet to the USB boot issue, but what puzzles me is that if I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?
