@timewalker75a - wow that was easy. fantastic. just curious how do you/we know 1312 is the right max?!

 

@zhangqq - interesting. does this make  shutdown work (period) - meaning it did not work at all - or that is makes shutdown work better (ie not hang)?

1312 is the maximum PNLF (Apple's Display Panel) can handle. And this is the value it defaults to after sleep, as in.. the brightness cap increases after sleep from 0710 to 1312.

 

Re: reset address and values - this fix was originally discovered by fassl and was needed for older hardware where FACP table didn't contain this data, so restart was not functional. Bootloaders are now altering this table and increasing it's length for platforms where FACP doesn't include this data. If you dump your native ACPI tables from clover by pressing F4 in GUI and then open up your FACP table from /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin you'll see that this data is already in there .. and it only affects restart, which is done through PS/2 controller, which is a part of Embedded controller... so shutdown was fixed by SLPE, not this... this doesn't even need to be there.

Hi guys-

This is not important of course, but aiming to a perfect laptop running OS X...

The wifi light is not on, even if the wifi is enabled. Any easy fix that could correct this?

 

Thanks,

AJ

TimeWalker - thanks that is great information.

 

well the FACP table shows this info - which according to the WIKI,Clover will read and use. in this case the PCI bus. agree with that for the T420 - the reset values do not need to specified in the config.plist

@AJ - will look at this later to see if i can figure out which LED lights that up. there is a DSDt function called SI that i used to reset the power and sleep LEDs. may be manual since OSX may not have this?

@okcakep (get blank monitor if you're using custom EDID in config.plist)

then make this change in red (delete or change)

InjectEDID to false is enought if your EDID is not the good one it would become the good one in newer system

I want to install OS X Mavericks on Thinkpad T420s, how can I patch my own dsdt based on your patched files?

 

I also want to use ultrabay to replace my dvd drive by a hdd, I saw some posts long ago said that the system can only boot to internal drive Clover without it, is it fixed yet?

Use shell from within Clover (new revision preferably) and add bcfg boot entry pointing to your optibay (utrabay?) drive. The entry will then appear under F12 boot menu..

@pokenguyen - there is dsdt.aml and dsdt.dsl (source with change comments) for any T420 - ready for use in the zip bundle. otherwise i don't understand your question.

T420s model can't use the same dsdt, but I think it will be very similar. I want to know which patches you applied to your dsdt so I can patch it myself.

I don't have a 420 to confirm, but gendalo and I have different t430's and it turns out that the dsdt's are identical. Likely it is true of 420's as well.

I also add Store (One, SLPE) and Sleep (0x10) to arg0 = 0x01 0x03 0x04.


Then I add Store (Zero, SLPE) and Sleep (0x10) ad the beginning of _WAK and _INI.


 


The shutdown and sleep work fine till now.

That's right - you GUESS, while Intel STATES:

Every state passed as the argument to _PTS is a sleep state, be it suspend type (0x1 and 0x3), lid 0x4 or soft-off (0x5).

@pokenguyen - misunderstood your model is a T420S and not plain T420. here is a zip of the original dsdt and current dsdt.dsl (with comments) - you can diff them to see what was add/changed. 

 

t420_dsdt.zip

 

@okcakep

 

1) the sound loss from laptop speaker is known to be result of changes in 10.8.5 v1.8 AppleACPIPlatform.kext. laptop will lose speaker after wake from sleep. if you rollback to 10.8.4 v1.7 AppleACPIPlatform.kext this will not happen. 

 

2) EDID and glitches. is your native EDID different than the one Tetonne provided. is it v1.3? look for 0103 string vs 0104 string. i am injecting a different EDID (v1.3 seems work) than what was native/built-in to fix the glitches. 

 

in reality i never figured out why one EDID worked and another didn't. here were 2 v1.3 EDIDs for LCD 1600x900 - one was native (from windows) - i suspect it is the diff in detail clocking timings info? works is 96 Mhz and the glitchy one is 110 Mhz

Thank you very much, I'm new to Thinkpad and waiting my caddy to arrive before installing. I will give it a look.

Btw, I think you should replace VboxHFS-64.efi by HFSPlus.efi for better OSX Install support. With the drivers, you can create install usb for 10.8 by restoring InstallESD.dmg, or use createmediainstall tool for 10.9. Very easy.

I just studied P8Z68-V PRO's dsdt  and found something interesting.

 

                Name (SMCR, 0x0430)

 

                OperationRegion (SLPR, SystemIO, SMCR, 0x08)
                Field (SLPR, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve)
                {
                        ,   4,
                    SLPE,   1,
                        ,   31,
                    SLPX,   1
                }

 

 

                Method (SWAK, 1, NotSerialized)
                {
                    Store (Zero, SLPE)
                    If (LNot (RTCS))
                    {
                        Notify (PWRB, 0x02)
                    }
                }

 

    Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)
    {
        Store (Zero, P80D)
        P8XH (Zero, Arg0)
        If (Arg0)
        {
            Store (One, \_SB.PCI0.LPCB.SLPX)   <==I think this is another one we missed.
            Store (One, \_SB.PCI0.LPCB.SLPE)  <== ASUS put SLPE here, it is the same as our SLPE.
            If (LAnd (LGreater (Arg0, 0x03), LLess (Arg0, 0x06)))
            {
                Store (Arg0, \_SB.SMIC)
                Store (One, GP27)
            }
        }
    }
    Method (_WAK, 1, Serialized)
    {
        ShiftLeft (Arg0, 0x04, DBG8)
        \_SB.PCI0.LPCB.SWAK (Arg0)
        Store (Zero, \_SB.PCI0.LPCB.PLED)
        Return (Package (0x02)
        {
            Zero,
            Zero
        })
    }
}


I found the follow combination worked.

 

1) SlpSmiAtWake => true

2) Add SLPE = 0  to _WAK  and SLPE = 1 to _PTS(arg0 = 1,3,4,5)

And yet Asus board have HAD this shutdown bug in UEFI boot until endless figured out that it has to write 0 and not 1 to SLP_SMI_EN register (which is SLPE) .. whats SLPX - nobody knows and it's not even documented in chipset specification, while PM30+4 bit register is.

 

SlpSmiAtWake was my request to slice, and it's actually broken and is poorly implemented, all it does is makes a change to your DSDT to unconditionally write 1 to SLPE when _WAK is called. On Tiano firmware this results in broken wake, when the laptop has been put to sleep by closing the lid.

@pokenguyen - great.  glad to have another voice and platform on this thread

 

HFSPlus.efi (i have an HFSPlus-64.efi) ... but sure i can give that a try- what does that do better that Vbox?

i made my 10.8 and 10.9 installers using this approach - basically put "BaseSystem" on the USB. made it more like "regular OS" so was more intuitive to me. These are my notes on how i do it:


format USB GUID with 1 or 2 partitions
expand and show all files in downloaded installer app
 
find and open/mount InstallESD.dmg in Contents/SharedSupport
extract BaseSystem.dmg (will be hidden)
restore this image to USB using Disk Utility
remove /Volume/USB/System/Installation/Package (link file)
cp -rp Packages (from installer InstallESD.dmg) to /Volume/USB/System/Installation/
extract (pacifist) mach_kernel from Packages/BaseSystemBinaries.pkg and put in USB/
 
TIPS:
turn on Disk Utility debug mode - you can see hidden partitions 
run:
defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility DUDebugMenuEnabled 1
 
if your usb is disk 2 
 
$ diskutil list
 
mount your ESP manually:
sudo mkdir /Volumes/ESP_USB
sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk2s1 /Volumes/ESP_USB
 
unzip bundle (say in  Downloads)
 
cp -rp ~/Downloads/EFI /Volumes/ESP_USB
cd /Volumes/ESP_USB/EFI/CLOVER
mv OEM OEM.NU
 
 
@zhangqq - well interesting and this stuff may work on a different Mobo/embedded controller. but, for me i am not keen on testing as i don't want to brick my box! anyway,  i am happy with the restart and shutdown function currently.

Using HFSPlus.efi can boot to special Install USB, which can create Recovery HD after installing. Creating Install USB is much easier than your method:

10.8: Restore InstallESD.dmg to flash drive

10.9: Run the following command:

sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app --nointeraction

      Clover r4542 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 14 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4542 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4542-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      I start this topic to make my Lenovo Thinkpad W540 usable with High Sierra
       
      I followed many guides but this one started by @tluck made me most progress: 
      My setup as in signature
       
      I will update first post with statuses of working features:
       
      Graphics:
      Nvidia Quadro - disabled
      Intel HD 4600 - working @ 1920x1080 and 1,5GB RAM (had to set ig-plaform-id as Haswell desktop, mobile do not work)
      using intelGraphicsFixUp.kext
       
      Sound:
      internal speakers and mic works with AppleACL.kext and profile 28

      USB:
      i boot MacOS from USB drive and it works, mouse and pendrive also works
      USB power not work yet, so USB WiFi dongle and iPhone connection not work (no power @ USB)
      IOReq finds only USB 3.0 controller not USB 2.0 even though I have 2 ports USB 3.0 and 2 ports USB 2.0
       
       
      Integrated Camera:
      recognised in IOReq but not working now (probably due to USB)
       
      Bluetooth:
      as USB but works without problem

      Ethernet:
      works with intelMausiEthernet.kext

      Keyboard:
      internal is PS2 so VoodooPS2Controller.kext is needed - some mappings I would like to have different but works

      Touchpad:
      works with VoodooPS2Controller.kext from @tluck topic
       
      Trackpoint:
      One time works mostly not - debugging in progress
       
      Batery Status:
      not working
       
      Integrated WiFi:
      intel -  not working
       
      Sleep / Hibernate:
      not working
       
      Backlight:
      not working
       
      Other found issues:
      besides that graphics works @ 1920x1080 and have a lots of ram window shadows (especially dock shadow) looks bad
       
      External VGA:
      not tested yet
       
      External Mini Display Port / Thunderbolt:
      not tested yet
       
      I will post my clover / debug config later

      Hi Hypervisors,
       
      EDITED - 9 JUNE 2018 - as all other issues resolved but am now stuck with QEMU Error: "PFLASH: Possible BUG - Write Block Confirm" details on testing lower in thread (to follow).
       
      I have been working to move my Late 2009 Xserve MacOS Server onto Ubuntu 18.04 LTS QEMU/KVM based virtual machine using OVMF and Clover.
       
      After much effort and testing based on the following information from: Kraxel's, Kholia, Gordon Turner and Clover site:
      https://www.kraxel.org/blog/2017/09/running-macos-as-guest-in-kvm/
      https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM
      https://gist.github.com/gordonturner/2a2e5ecde5e7860b52e2
      https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home
       
      I have now managed to get OVMF/Clover boot and install of MacOS Sierra.
       
      I started with Ubuntu 16.04 initially but this required download and compile of QEMU to get update of machines to: pc-q35-2.9 or better, so I moved to Ubuntu 18.04, which has pc-q35.2.11 available as standard.
       
      So I am now working with standard Ubuntu 18.04 LTS based systems with following packages: kvm/qemu/libvirt/bridge-utils/ovmf/virt-manager
       
      As I want to use PCIe Passthrough for a number of PCIe card currently installed in the server (SmallTree 10GbE & Areca ARC-1883 SAS RAID) I set up my machine with linux kernel boot configuration (/etc/default/grub) of: 
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="iommu=1 intel_iommu=on" (as my machine is intel VT-d based HW virtualisation)
       
      This resulted in creation of a number of iommu groups (see /sys/kernel/iommu_group directory for this and this posting for information: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/ubuntu-17-04-vfio-pcie-passthrough-kernel-update-4-14-rc1/119639 , noting that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS has kernel version: 4.15.0-22-generic so there is no need to do kernel update for iommu to work).
       
      Using bare minimal Clover config.plist:
       
       
      And following Clover UEFI drivers:
       
      I can boot MacOS, but it is very very slow... it sits on the apple boot logo for over a minutes before finally moving onto the progress bar.
      The other problem I have is that no PCI or Network devices appear in the "About This Mac" System Information Report and I cannot get any network connectivity from bridged E1000 network device.
       
      Here is my virtlib.xml dump for the virtual machine:
       

      Can any one advise of whether I need to update the CLOVER config.plist to add extra items in to allow network and PCI Passthrough to work.
       
      Thank you.
       
      Regards,
       
      Zebity
