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"

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:

Hello Sherlocks, in your latest commit, I think it should be i9-9900k not i7-9900k. :D

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.

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      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.

      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....
