@okcakep - well not sure about your VGA issue. i presume you are either using a patched AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext or letting clover do it via the kext patch feature like the one i put in my config.plist

 

if the vga port buffer was not enabled (configured) you would not get anything at all. i just re-tested with 10.8.5 and it VGA works to my HP 24 in monitor. 

 

not sure the link you have above will work -  as that seems to be for MBR disks.

The way I built a dual boot UEFI with Clover, is I created a new UEFI Windows 7 x64 install USB. then i could directly install to my GPT disk with OSX and configured it for UEFI boot. you can create a 3rd partition and format it exfat for now (1st is ESP, 2nd is OSX and 3rd is for Windows). when in the windows installer you can reformat the exfat partition as NTFS. when you are done you should have an ESP that looks something like this:

then Clover GUI should look like this - Windows is the first one.

P.S. i forgot what a pain it was figuring out how to make a UEFI Win7x64 USB. here is how i did it on my MAC. i think there are plenty of other recipes out there:

  1. Download/obtain a Win7x64.ISO - then mount (open) it.
  2. Disk Utility create GPT/USD USB with free space
  3. command line: remove ESP/EFI partition
         sudo gpt delete -i 1 /dev/diskX 
  4. command line: add 1 partition for content
         sudo gpt add -i 1 /dev/diskX 
  5. Disk Utility: format single partition as msdos (fat32)
  6. copy everything from ISO to USB partition
         rysync -avr /Volumes/ISO/ /Volumes/USB
  7. add boot/bootx64.efi to /efi folder on USB (this came from /Windows)

Thanks for the last pack

i have some blinking image when using safari (top sites page) or with page using flash

due to AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext ? don't know

any idea?

 

pfff 1024x768..

grr

hmm sounds kinda like the well known HD3000 artifacts? The SNBGraphicsFB has 4 ports when using the clover config.plist patch.

 

LCD

DisplayPort

DVI

VGA

 

i have not seen artifacts/shimmering since i began using a different EDID. I noticed you are using an EDID in your config.plist? 

what changed - other than 10.8.5 which does have new gfx drivers?

@ all :back to new tluck config (DualLink to 0), in fact the issue described here is not worth with my config vs tluck. But i when back to tluck config because i'm not able to correct resolution and blinking image on my own. (Not so easy to learn). The aim of my config is to learn not to make a alternative.

 

 

@tluck can't find AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext in 10.8.5 (S/L/E). Do u?

I'm sure it was present in 10.8.4 lol

 

-----

 

For the moment : resolution is 1024x768 only grrr

 

try to solve with this with no success DisplayProductID DisplayVendorID are not the same now??

try genEDID_3c.zip too without success for the moment

- not sure what you mean about that kext missing in 10.8.5. These are Intel kexts that load - same as before in 10.8.4.

- so are which config.plist are you using - are you using one of the ones i posted? meaning if the one in 4236Y33 i posted does not work then lets get one that does for 1366x768 resolution. 

 

Before clover with Chimer/Chameleon, I would do a binary patch on the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB to replace the 4th port with VGA. I am just letting clover do the patching.  your native resolution is 1366x768 right? can you change your display res to that? you can certainly 

 

$ kextstat|grep Intel
   15    0 0xffffff7f81a3c000 0x2e000    0x2e000    com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (214.0.0) 
   23    0 0xffffff7f81a37000 0x3000     0x3000     com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient (214.0.0) 
   38    0 0xffffff7f80ef6000 0x19000    0x19000    com.insanelymac.driver.AppleIntelE1000e (2.4.14) 
   72    0 0xffffff7f81949000 0x2e000    0x2e000    com.apple.driver.AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB (8.1.6) 
   74    0 0xffffff7f819af000 0x62000    0x62000    com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHD3000Graphics (8.1.6)

@tluck thanks for feed back and help.
before i had native resolution 1366x768 on 10.8.4
now i use your config except : dual link=1 cos 0 is needed for my T420, CustomEDID and inject EDID.
I'm not using the one i provide u.
kextstat|grep Intel
   16    0 0xffffff7f81a12000 0x2e000    0x2e000    com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (214.0.0) <7 6 5 4 3 1>

2 ligns here only some are missing???
I confirm that for unknown reason AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB is missing in S/L/E???
 
after 10.8.5 combo reinstall, add kexts, repair :
kextstat|grep Intel
   16    0 0xffffff7f81a0d000 0x2e000    0x2e000    com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (214.0.0) <7 6 5 4 3 1>

com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient is still missing

 

I still don't understand why AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB had disappeared before???? that was the first time i update via apple store vs combo method. I'll not do this next time lol.

 

Thanks to tluck
 
You will find my config totally based on tluck one but customized for 4236Y33.
Inside :

/4236Y33/ACPI/patched/

/4236Y33/ACPI/patched/dsdt.aml           based on tluck's one but dual ink set to 0

/4236Y33/ACPI/patched/ssdt.aml tluck's one

/4236Y33/config.plist based on tluck's one

/4236Y33/Configuration-GUI.webloc FYI

/4236Y33/DisplayVendorID-6af/DisplayProductID-313c    screen profile

 
 
This config is based on tluck'one and customized for 4236Y33 on 10.8.5.

Do you guys still get shutdown issues with UEFI Clover?

Thanks to some one else's observation we have apparently solved the issue, at least the infamous shutdown hang hasn't happened during past 20+ shutdown attempts. I've decided to try and share the solution by downloading your guys' (T420) patched DSDT and try to incorporate the fix. I was baffled when I got hold of your DSDT as it already contained the fix I was attempting to implement, with one minor hiccup... the length of SystemIO filed is set to One, whilst it should be at least 0x08, otherwise SLPE won't get preserved.

 

So I'm asking, is the shutdown still randomly broken on your machines?

Hi there, yes, it is still broken...

Actually, now I see why it's broken .. because people keep adding patches that they don't know the purpose of, particularly this one that is meant for socket LGA775 Asus desktop boards .. 

    Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)
    {
        If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05)) {}
        Else
        {

        }
    } 

 

Essentially receiving method argument that is equal 0x05 mens shutdown command was issued.. but it's is requested to do nothing  {} if shutdown was requested.
While the actual _PTS code had had the proper action for shutdown in place, you have cancelled it out by applying the shutdown patch from auto patchers.. (Clover/ MacIASL/napalm's DSDT Editor and patcher).. see, the proper action is there, but it gets suppressed but If/Else statements:
                If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05))
                {
                    Store (Zero, SLPE)
                    Sleep (0x10)
                }
Your _PTS should be the following I reckon .. for shutdown to actually work.
    Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)
    {
        Store (One, Local0)
        If (LEqual (Arg0, SPS))
        {
            Store (Zero, Local0)
        }

        If (LOr (LEqual (Arg0, Zero), LGreaterEqual (Arg0, 0x06)))
        {
            Store (Zero, Local0)
        }

        If (Local0)
        {

            }

                Store (Zero, \_SB.PCI0.LPC.EC.HFNI)
                Store (Zero, \_SB.PCI0.LPC.EC.HFSP)
            }

                Store (\_SB.PCI0.LPC.EC.ADP1._PSR (), ACST)
            }

            If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x04))
            {
                \_SB.SLPB._PSW (Zero)
                TRAP ()

            {

yes i still get occasional hangs on shutdown. the last 3 times (in recent memory) no problem - but it is random. i was traveling this week so i usually shutdown vs sleep - as random hang (fast blinking power) with sleep is a bigger problem that shutdown hang. i usually boot with chameleon on USB when traveling/working and i know i will want to sleep the system. my system starts in 15 seconds from cold boot since i am using a momentus XT so start up is not a huge problem.

 

hmm...

which dsdt.dsl are you looking at?  the dsdt.dsl i use is in the clover zip in post             #397            

where did you get the _PTS code that does nothing?

this is what i found in my dsdt.dsl

That's the one...

All I've shown you was the structure of the method you currently have. as it is right now, your PTS code does nothing when shutdown command is received  -- If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05)) {} followed by the Else statement. Which means nothing  has to be done if prepare to sleep case is shutdown, and the rest has to be done if sleep was requested..

Ah! i see. yes, months ago I used clover to auto patch the dsdt and then i manually added a bunch of other stuff. and never looked closely at that section. here is the original dsdt _PTS method vs broken.

orig

 

            If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05))
            {
                \TRAP ()
                \_SB.PCI0.LPC.TPM.CMOR ()
                \AWON (0x05)
            }


vs cloverpatch
 
i see the no-op on top level if-then.
and then the autopatcher must have put in
 
        If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05)) {}
        Else
        {
 
......
               If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05))
                {
             Store (Zero, SLPE)
             Sleep (0x10)
                 }
....
}
 
 
but then again it never got to the inner logic
which actions should work? 

 

 

 

original DSDT

    Method (\_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)
    {
        Store (0x01, Local0)

Lenovo uses SMI protocol on their thinkpads since it's all about security and stuff (hence you see a lot of TPM (Trusted Platform Module) related operations. Just to do that  in _PTS ... I believe it should solve the issue:

            
            Scope (\)
            {
                OperationRegion (SLPR, SystemIO, 0x0430, 0x01)
                Field (SLPR, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve)
                {
                        ,   4, 
                    SLPE,   1
                }
            }
 
            If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05))
            {
                \TRAP ()
                \_SB.PCI0.LPC.TPM.CMOR ()
                \AWON (0x05)
                Store (0x00, SLPE)
                Sleep (0x10)
            }

Well huge thank you to TimeWalker75a!!! It seems we have a fix to the Shutdown hang. Maybe it will fix the random sleep hang too?!

... the old DSDT had some extra bogus logic in the PTS method which essentially resulted in some no-ops.

 

Anyway I updated the Clover bundle in post: #397  

 

At the minimum, extract and replace REPLACE your DSDT.aml with this one! There is one for both LCD sizes.

 

 

Update 26-Sep-2013

  • Revised DSDT for Shutdown hang (big thanks to TimeWalker75a)
  • Updated Clover to b2133  (Thanks to Slice and Team of course)
  • Updated FakeSMC - (Kozlek's ver)
  • Updated VoodooPS2Controller (RehabMan's ver)
  • Added Patched AICPUPM kext for Chameleon compatibility.

Glad I was of a help. Actually could have looked at some more things, will do if I get bored one evening. I was actually pointed out to that fix by a person named endless. And to be absolutely fair, I was really dumbfounded when I recalled I have been using this fix on my old P35-DS3 based rig for well over 4 years ..

Hm... for me when the shutdown used to hang everything except power and keyboard illumination, well and fan (obviously) got turned off, including Wi-Fi indicator. Try leaving just the Store (0x00, SLPE) and Sleep (0x10) in the If (Arg0, 0x05) statement, perhaps something is interfering with shutdown process.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub Updated to Clover r4849 Updated Kexts Shift to use WhatEvergreen.kext SSDT updates for T460 Added Frank's T470p DSDT files Added T470 DSDT
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.

      CSM: UEFI o LEGACY, oppure a secondo del tipo di installazione
      VT-x / VT-d disable
      *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI
      Materiale Occorrente 
      "OS X (Versione App.Store)”
      USB 8GB  *nota: nel caso di usb superiori dovrà essere partizionata, in modo da avere una partizione su cui "lavoreremo,di questa dimensione

      In allegato,a fondo pagina troverete un "pacchetto" contenente : ShowAllfiles, Kext Wizard, FakeSmc.kext: 
      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi
                               : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine,
       
      *Nota: Altri driver che si possono usare  al suo posto  sono:

      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post

      Ho comprato da poco un Acer Aspire 5750G e girando su internet ho trovato la cartella efi che garantiva quasi tutto funzionante perfino il wifi (https://github.com/zipippino/HighSierraAspire5750G).
      Allora felicissimo installo macOS e a parte incappare in errori stupidi, riesco a fare tutto, ma quando sono riuscito ad installare clover Legacy e sostituendo la roba con la 'mia' efi clover si avvia ma macOS no, semplicemente non carica (si nota anche pk la spia dell'hdd che dice se è in attivitá è spenta.
      Qualcuno può aiutarmi?

      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not get iMessage to work properly. It worked precisely once, on my first installation attempt. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - if you can get NVRAM/PRAM working properly on this hardware, please do edit the config as you see fit.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.
