but you are able to boot Snuk's 1.52 DSDT right? (other than the ACPIBatteryManager issue?)

Ah, I can use your aml with lower version of clover, and when I use Snuk aml it KP about 2 times then It can boot into OS normaly, and it loop that progress again and again after every restart or start up! So strange!

Hello together,

 

last weekend I tried around 12h to boot up, always with the similar faults as shown on the picture, just the first message changes:

screenshot_42.png.f07a22d074a93a2763f76405e9fd0c53.png

 

What I did so far:

 

- use clover 4542 and 4509

- use my DSDT

- use DSDT from @tluck 

- use the package from tluck dated August, with my DSDT

- use bios default settings and make changes according to this guide

- save ACPI tables again and compared with my 1.52: same

 

Always the same result... argh.. The crazy thing is it was working before...

 

The only way to boot into macOS is without DSDT.. then of course nothing is working.

 

Somewhere else I read that macOS has sometimes problem with the installed RAM. So I will organize a few other modules and try again.

 

Keep you updated...

 

UPDATE:

Just tried DSDT_1.52_hs from @tluck , same result, see above picture.

 

UPDATE 2:

new RAM, same problem

Hmm. can you try with the DSDT most recently provided and this config.plist which will disable all the Clover DSDT edits except fix regions.

rename it config.plist or select during Clover startup. note: i forget to mention - this most recent DSDT needs ACPIPoller.kext to handle FAN speed.

Obviously this DSDT works for me.

@Snuk i took your nicely patched DSDT.dsl and added a few more changes/fixes. then compiled it.

The Mojave config, used in High Sierra, with the graphics tweak for 1600 x 900 display is working fantastic for me. I've also upgraded RAM to 16GB and graphics glitches are pretty much a thing of the past.

Do you mean the serial number inside the config.plist?

Hello again,

 

today I made some more tests, here are the results:

 

- put in another RAM, same problem as described 9/11/2018 at 8:31 PM

- boot with my dsdt_1.52 and the config from @tluck actual bundle,  same problem as described 9/11/2018 at 8:31 PM

- boot with my dsdt_1.52 and tlucks new config config.1600x900.2e3.plist, kernel panic (see attached picture, related to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, maybe same problem as @SuperReaper reported)

- boot with tlucks dsdt_1.52 and the config from @tluck actual bundle,  same problem as described 9/11/2018 at 8:31 PM

- boot with tlucks dsdt_1.52 and tlucks new config config.1600x900.2e3.plist, successfully boot into macOS HS, looks good

- boot with tlucks dsdt_1.52_hs and the config from @tluck actual bundle, kernel panic (see attached picture, related to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, maybe same problem as @SuperReaper reported)

- boot with tlucks dsdt_1.52_hs and tlucks new config config.1600x900.2e3.plist, kernel panic (see attached picture, related to AppleSmartBatteryManager, maybe same problem as @SuperReaper reported as well)

 

So again, for me the following is working: tlucks dsdt_1.52 and tlucks new config config.1600x900.2e3.plist!

 

 

P.S. sorry for the bad pictures, they are captured from slo-mo videos

dsdt_1.52 and tlucks new config config.1600x900.2e3.plist

tlucks dsdt_1.52_hs and tlucks new config config.1600x900.2e3.plist

Great news. That points to the recent version of Clover breaking the DSDT for some reason (and not for everyone!?) ... as this "working" config.1600x900.2e3.plist has the ACPI DSDT fixes turned off except Fix_regions. But everything is already in the pre-made DSDT except a few things. I will make a few appropriate changes and repost the zip.

 

Note: i found very little difference between the 1.46 DSDT and 1.52 DSDT.

Hey guys. I would ask you how to "whitelist" my T420 Bios. I got this machine with Bios 1.49 and I don't know where to do it.

 

Hi, it's not a question of where but how to do it.

You need to flash a bios with whitelist mod, for example v1.52 with whitelist mod: T420 BIOS v1.52 mod

 

Use it on your own risk, the T420 here already had this bios.

@Tluck, @Snuk,


How to resolve this problem without remove USB Inject All Kext while using Config Mojave?. I am too curious how exactly Mac OS Mojave looked like to that I've decided to give my computer a try by using Mojave Config in Tluck Package. After boot, the MacOS High Sierra recognize my system as MacBook Pro 2013 and also allow me upgrade direct via Apple Store. 

Besides that, something really strange happened. I can't open Config Mojave Plist file by Clover then I've tried several times before using Plist Edit Pro to check what wrong with it. When Plist Edit Pro opened the config file, there few main information inside has been deleted ( Kext to Patch ... System ... etc )

Are you saying that if mojave.plist is used, then it's possible to update to mojave via Apple Store?

 

I use mojave.plist on a High Sierra install and get the same USB Accessory Needs Power if more than one USB device is plugged in.

@bedfellow Yes. When my machine was identified as Macbook Pro 13, it’s allowed me to update like this way. ( But make sure you already install apple beta or developers profile into your system ). 

 

I used same config, same packages i have downloaded from Tluck but i dont know why only X220 was recognized as Macbook Pro 2013. My “new” T420 wasn’t.

It allows you to update, but did you perform the update?

Yes. I did. While I was writing reply comments here, my machine was updating by that way. Here is my very first impressions since I was able to update by this way. 

- Trackpad, Wifi, Speaker ... etc. Still recognized like Native machine. I don't see any problems. 
- Still able to keep some patched I had used like Night Shift .... 
- Due to HD3000 is non-metal supporting, there have major lagging. I hope Tluck or anyone else could find away to patch frame or something like this to make the system run more smoothly. 
- Tluck config Mojave is so amazing !!!!

I performed the update and now in Mojave, but have lost wifi. Any advice on getting it working?

 


Which brand of Wifi card do you use in your machine?. 

I use Broadcom and I also have to put bunch of patches into my config's kexts-to-patch in order to make it work in MacOS.  
Here is what I have collected for a long time since El Cap til now.

wifi.plist


Hopefully it will help you. I have no knowledge about coding so that I have copy-paste and then messing my machine until I see which works for me lol.
Besides that, how do your machine graphics work? any lag?

I performed the update and now in Mojave, but have lost wifi. Any advice on getting it working?

 

If you have Atheros, bad news: Apple removed the support in Mojave completely.

But you can use the kext of HighSierra, see also here.

Thanks for the link but unfortunately I don't understand what I need to do. Is there a kext I need to put somewhere?

I had tried copying over High Sierra IO80211Family.kext, but that didn't work, even after several reboots, so thought I would give an external USB wifi dongle a try whilst trying to work out how to get the internal card working.

 

The USB dongle didn't work so I went searching for drivers for that and discovered https://github.com/chris1111/WIFI-Network-macOS-High-Sierra, which I installed. On reboot I had wifi, so assumed it was the dongle, but surprisingly it is actually the built in wifi card. Not sure if it's c combination of both the kext and driver, or whether just the driver.

      Hi All
       
      I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation:
      - MSI B350 PC Mate
      - Ryzen 5 - 2600
      - Radeon Pro 580 GPU
      - 4 x 8GB DDR4
      (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) 
       
      Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
      ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
      Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
       
      So can someone help...

      I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
      In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
      In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
      In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
       
      But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
      Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...

      I get a lot of questions about HOW TO BACKUP A HACKINTOSH. So I decided to create Complete Guide with 5 methods described in detail, how to easily make bootable clones of Hackintosh system disks, or backup your data. Full step by step tutorial is here:

      Let's say: I'm trying to create a Bootable Hackintosh USB for Mac OS High Sierra [Latest Stable Version], and I'm using a Virtual Machine [with Mac OS High Sierra] on my Windows 10.
       
      Specific Questions:
      What BIOS Settings should I change for - LENOVO Motherboard BIOS? What should I keep in mind when using a Virtual Machine [MacOS] for the Bootable USB Creation Process? Should I use Clover EFI Bootloader or Clover Configurator, or Both? What settings should I change change in those? Does it matter which version(s) of Clover Sofwares I use? Will they support USB Creation for ALL versions of MAC Operating Systems? [Or do they only support some versions of Mac OS?]  
      Thanks in Advance for your help!

      Reviving my old INSTAHackintosh, it's been a while....
      Purpose:
      Create User Custom Install iso/dmg with bootloader, apps and user-settings.
      Create Live iso/usb.
      What Versions:
      Tiger-Current ( bit ambitious but hey I like a challenge ).
      Why:
      Because I can!
      I'm not too impressed with the way Apple and others handle their installs.
      Support for 4 Bootloaders:
      Chameleon
      Clover Legacy
      Refit Ozmosis
      Clover UEFI
      Keep you informed as I progress from scratch.
      This could take a while, it's NOT my priority.
      Will probably release in Os versions, starting at Mojave and working backwards.

      Buenas!
      recuerdo que cuando empece a instalar el clover para hacer mi hackintosh el boot de clover tenia una cuenta atrás en la que pasado “no se si eran 5 o 6 segundos”se iniciaba la opcion de arranque de high sierra del disco duro que es la que se marca por defecto, seguramente habré instalado un theme que me lo deja fijo y no recuerdo como volver activarlo.
      gracias de antemano!!!
