I have to find a way to read the panic since it happens fast with a tedious kext's names logging that keeps all the screen without let me see the reason of the fault. But I suspect it's still regarding a locked msrs.. or at least it seems.

@joevt is correct, and I hope we have a workaround to this: (Apply the patch via Clover KernelToPatch)

It's clearly a bug, already solved in Xcode 10 last year. Not sure we need a solution, which I eventually have (I have a tiny command line for that in the hwsensor project), or just wait for a better Xcode 11 that will fix the bug as already was with predecessor. Anyway I din't try it my self as I installed Catalina only few hours ago, but I will soon.

 

Right, not sure we need a solution. Missing Clover Logo occurs in Mojave/ Xcode 10 and Catalina/ Xcode 11 into my config. It's the same with release from Repo.

uless my cpu isn't involved, but should since is it a Core i5 3210M if I correctly understood the code.

I didn't check in 10.14+ but it is working in 10.13 with my i5-3320M.

When update to latest Clover it show an error or bug?

serial or firewire kprintf?

@joevt easy as I said, no redirecting to any socket, just my screen as It took just two reboots to understand that the xcpm patch wasn't working as the AIPM works. Anyway not really sure it "just don't work" or it's a consequence of another thing.

Thanks, looks pomising, I'll try it soon and let you know.

I can confirm that it works well in mojave and sierra, but in 10.15 I have problems. Let see if I can provide more info with the patch @PMheart link to us... within an hour ...more or less when I'll be at Home.

Beta of 10.15 (19A487l)
Last login: Mon Jun 24 20:55:52 on console
vectorsigma@MacBook-Pro-di-vector ~ % sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.mode
0
vectorsigma@MacBook-Pro-di-vector ~ % 

that's the outcome, xcpm enabled (confirmed in bdmesg) plus AICPM patch. This is the panic w/o AICPM patch and KernelXCPM turned on (thanks again to @PMheart for the patch linked):

 

CIMG1247.thumb.JPG.49b6313a422c98bfe9ed79e6be81ca0c.JPG

 

still panics on AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. 

 

P.S. KernelPm turned on as well.

Not related, sf or the OS remove it during the download or the decompression. During the compilation the image is there, or at least for me.

@vector sigma I think I have figured it out:

 

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4973/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/kernel_patcher.c#l1122

 

which should be os_version >= AsciiOSVersionToUint64("10.16") now. (Meaning that 10.15 is still "unsupported" despite I added necessary patches)

Please also change the comment right above, thanks!

Nope. It's not like the bytes are stable, so better to leave as is.

The string length is currently limited to 64 (SMBIOS_STRING_MAX_LENGTH) ?

https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/blob/3806e1fd139775610d8f2e7541a916c3a91ad989/MdeModulePkg/Universal/SmbiosDxe/SmbiosDxe.c#L196

 

Howerver, if I force change maxline in "UpdateSmbiosString" to SMBIOS_TABLE_MAX_LENGTH (with SmbiosEpsNew->MinorVersion = 7), "Apple ROM Info" doesnt show up.

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/HEAD/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/smbios.c#l303

 

Hope you will get a clue soon @Slice

after one year, as soon I understood that you wanted a dark background image and not the logo Lol, here is it:

To all,

before committing changes I want to know if the package can work in old OSes, e.g. 10.10 or maybe 10.7? Please report!

Thanks a lot :) I look forward to the new commit. It's possible that Clover Logo keeps Green color (in Dark Mode) instead of Gray. I've a dream...

 

I hope this new background would be compatible with old OSes e.g. 10.10 or 10.10.7

      Gigabyte, in their infinite wisdom, decided to remove the option to disable serial ports, and not being able to do so has been causing me some problems. I know that I have to either use a patch in clover, or create a custom SSDT to disable super I/O, but I honestly do not know how to go about doing this. One of the weirder problems I'm experiencing is the inability to connect to Apple Music (error 11556) unless I go into my network settings, and delete my serial connection. If anyone could help me out with this, that'd be greatly appreciated; anyway, thank you for taking the time to read this.

      Hi All - quick thing - I have a NUC 8i7BEH with 32GB RAM and 2 x 1TB SSD drives. Each drive has its own OS - Windows 10 and Catalina 10.15.
       
      Clover works well - Catalina Boots, so does Windows.
      Catalina - has sound over HDMI (to my monitor's speakers)
      Windows - no audio device found - It does show Realtek and Intel Display Drivers - but the speaker has a red"x" and in Devices, there is no entry for Microphone Array under Audio Input/Output. It does, however, show Intel display over the HDMI - but actually no sound.
       
      I have tried reinstalling Realtek drivers - now here's the thing...when it installs, it first uninstalls existing Realtek drivers - at this stage (and it's important) the sound starts working - as if uninstalling did the trick. As part of the installing, I have to reboot and upon reboot, it actually reinstalls the Realtek drivers. After that, I'm back to square 1. Unsure if it's the config.plist or boot args in clover. But something with Clover for sure.
       
      I have tested this by removing the Mac Drive with clover and just booting directly to Windows 10 bootloader and everything works as it should, I have sound over HDMI and the audio device shows. Just not when I boot with Clover.
       
      has anyone experienced this and have thoughts or pointers.
       
      Thanks a ton!
