can you try this config.plist that turns off all DSDT edits? you should just have 2 files - DSDT.aml and SSDT-T420-PS2K.aml - in CLOVER/ACPI/patched right? 

config.nopatch.plist.zip

It can't boot with bios (no) dsdt, but I can't use wifi or any function key  which patched in dsdt!

@SuperReaperi am not sure i understand... so does this config.plist works for you to boot with later clover?

Hello guys, I'm kinda new in hackintosh, and now I'm half-way through on hackintoshing my T420, the problem is when I boot up to clover to install MacOS High Sierra for the first time, it shows an Apple Logo and a loading bar below, and then when the loading bar reaches 70% it vanishes and the screen turns to completely black and empty.. need help. thanks, I also noticed that I cant boot windows 10 when Im on ACHI, but on compatibility it works fine.(is this normal?), thanks again. I got  a T420 i52540m NO nvidia, 1366X768 screen

Well try to remove other screen resolution in comfig.plist and set only one to 1366x768 which is your mative solution. Clover may boot in 1024x768 depends on t420 bios and dont worry while the gui installation starts, it will go to 1366x768

keep these config originally. open config.plist and find there are "screenresolution""screenresolution-alt1""screenresolution-alt2", remove alt1 and alt2 then rename 960x600 to 1366x768

It works on my x220, if there's something else blocking the gui installation, maybe you need to check the data's integrity?

maybe your esp partition is less than 200mb? apple disk utility will fail in that case.

Sorry, I type wrong, what I mean is I can boot into hackintosh without dsdt or use bios dsdt in clover config with any version of clover, but wifi or any function patch in dsdt can't recognize! And with your dsdt I can only boot with clover v2.4 r4513 or lower!

So it seems that the later version of clover is changing something (by edit/patching) the DSDT which breaks something on your system. since the SAME DSDT.aml works for 4513. 

 

did you test with config.nopatch.plist?  which makes no changes to the DSDT.

yes, It's ok, but in verbose mode it show a lot of error although it can still boot into the os.

Initially I thought config.1600x900.2e2.plist had made a improvement in resolving display glitches, but unfortunately it has not. It's a bit of a game stopper for me as I watch quite a lot of Youtuve videos which are badly affected by them. It appear to make no difference whether its Flash or HTML5, both have glitchy lines going across the video.

 

Sometimes there's a single line, somtimes multiple lines and sometimes none. The same laptop runs Windows 10 and Linux without any such issues. I've attached an example from a video I was watching.

It is a clover bug, we cannot do anything except adding slide=0 to reduce them or downgrade to 10.11.3. Even Rehabman says it is normally to have artifacts on hd3000:(

It's a shame really, as I like MacOS, but this seriously detracts from the pleasure of using it. maybe it's time for a change of laptop to something that doesn't have HD3000?

Rehabman says that hd4000 or above does not have artifacts, but for some situations i still need to continue using my x220, I have been searching for the solution after 10.12 and no luck

I have 2 T420 1600x900 systems. One has 16GB total matched memory chips with replacement LG LCD - no glitches. The other one has 2 mismatched speed/maker memory chips 8GB total and AUO LCD and this one gets glitches. For a long time no glitches - from 10.8.x to 10.12.x. But 10.13.0-10.13 was bad - very glitchy, 10.13.4+ looked better. Mojave with HighSierra or Sierra HD3000 kexts seems to be the same as before. 

No good fix ever found. the EDID injection helps but isn't perfect.  For me, when the T460 gets cheap, i may go (back) to that model. but there are plenty of options with newer gfx than HD3000.

      I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.

      I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?

      I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.

      Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it)
      Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version?
      If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases
      Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?

      Will it be better to use OpenCore?

      Specs:
      Mortar Max B450M
      Ryzen 2600x
      Nvidia GTX 1060
      16gb DDR4 2400mhz

      My steps so far:
      Set up Catalina install USB exactly according to Plain Vanilla guide. Disconnect my Windows drive in PC, so that only the empty Hard Drive is connected to Motherboard. Boot to USB, select Install Catalina option. BIOS set to UEFI, Safe mode Off. Always get stuck at the same IOconsoleUsers: GIOScreenLockState point. Tried -radvesa, -radoff, nv-disable=0 boot options (separately), and disabling BIOS virtualization (vt-d) -> NO luck. This from the top search result https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/b5a6ry/ioconsoleusersgioscreenlockstate_3_blackscreen/  
      Screen pics attached. Here are the last couple of lines that could be important:
      GTrace synchronization point 4
      Unsupported CPU
      Unsupported PCH
      Adding ADGP mode validate property
      hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20
      IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
      IOconsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
       
      Please give me some ideas what else might work. Thank you.

      Script file to clone Clover, Opencore (official and unofficial) repos
      Script will create link to itself in /usr/local/bin/bob
      Wouldn't hurt to check there are no "Bob"'s there, i "Hope" there isn't.
      Then you only need to type bob. and a parameter
      "n" for NDK repo, unofficial
      "a" for ACID repo, official
      "c" for CLOVER
      It also takes "all" for ALL, if your game
       
      Easier typing bob than.....usual stuff
      Enjoy

      My PROBLEM: I followed the Plain Vanilla guide (https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/) to a T in creating the OS X Catalina installer USB. I'm totally new to Hackintosh, and just want an Apple environment to Time Machine migrate my files and system from my ageing MacBook Pro. When I start to use the USB on the target PC (Dell Inspiron 3847 desktop), I ONLY see the Microsoft (which is the original OS, and on a SEPARATE Hard drive from where I want to install Mac OS), ZERO option for installing the OSX Catalina! Please SEE PICTURE link: https://imgur.com/a/FnLB2Q9   I'm a beginner, but I tried to google my problem. The answers were either incomplete, hard for me to understand and put into action, or were outdated and applied to older OSXs.
