hmm. ok. well it seems to work for many of us on T420. if i use the built-in EDID i get lots of glitches and buffer hangs. as soon as i use/inject this EDID - zero glitch - zero hangs.  sorry it does not work for you.

can you send me your clover config plist for boot?

@AJ 

 

1)  /.IAbootfiles  or something like this is created by the installer on the OS partition you were upgrading by the Install OSX.app ...  if you have HFSplus.efi vs Vboxhfs.efi in your clover drivers folder, then clover can boot from this installer bundle upon reboot. (just like a real mac)

 

since you aborted the install process by not restarting using this bundle, you can get rid of this folder now.

 

2) the installer will create (or update) the recovery partition - which is a 650MB partition on your OS HD. ( i would keep this.)

Thank you guys. I have deleted the .IABootfiles and the "Install Mavericks from..." is no longer there, good.

 

And for the recovery partition, it is actually there. The problem is that it doesn't boot, it complains about the AppleHDA kext. I'm trying to install the modified kexts to the BaseSystem.dmg that is in the recovery partition to see if I can boot from it. It would be useful in case of problems.

I used the following command from terminal to enable debug mode in Disk Utility and view/mount hidden partitions from the debug menu:

defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility advanced-image-options -bool true

 

Once mounted, I have converted the read-only .dmg into a read-write, applied the custom kexts using Kext Wizard, then converted .dmg into a compressed .dmg, and replaced the BaseSystem.dmg into the Recovery Partition. It almost boots now... still looking at it...

@aj - there is a much easier way to boot recovery partition!!! it is essentially the same thing as the USB installer - which requires extra kexts.

 

so stop at clover GUI

use clover shell to rename OEM so it's not in play for this and boot recoveryHD using the top level config.plist which will inject (custom) kexts from 10.9 

 

shell commands
 

map fs0

fs0:

cd /EFI/CLOVER

mv OEM OEM.NU

exit

hehe, that seems easier... indeed... I will try it...

take 2 on EDID HD3000 fix.

 

OK this theory is working in practice!  Theory: bogus panel size was the culprit

 

I changed just the panel size from 309x174 to 310x174. I can't get a glitch/hang on 10.8.5 or 10.9.0 using this edited EDID info.

It was NOT sync sizes as i originally thought - that attempt eventually hung.

 

tetonne - your EDID seems to be 309x173? maybe if i gen one that has 310x174 for 1366x768 resolution? i will post a new one test EDID later.

i noticed these EDIDs (mine too) specify a max size to be 310x170 but the panel was set to be only 309mm... it stands to reason the max cannot be bigger than the panel!

 

more info from revised post             #629

@tluck "EDID seems to be 309x173?" I don't know (don't understand in fact)

send me the new edid when it's created, i'll test and feed back. :)

@tluck, could you generate an EDID with that panel size for 1600x900? I tried all the EDIDs so far (except the one in post #629) and I'm still getting hangs and glitches (though rarely). I'm also on 1600x900.

Can you generate a new edid for 1600x900? And explain which parts(number) to change?

Thanks i ll try

 

i have already tried your edid with 36AE10 but no luck, always glitch

@honeywell - see post 629 ... and the clover bundle has this same working (for me ?!) EDID for 1600x900.  the OEM 1600.900 config.plist is set up to inject the EDID and i also put in the DSDT (for non-clover).

 

... i don't know why this particular EDID works for me (and others ) but not for all.  

 

if you are NOT injecting this EDID (with product 2e2) , then please run : ioreg -l |grep EDID and post the EDID - maybe we can make sense of it and get a working one.

@yum - i will look at this post.  but I already have LCD brightness (16 levels)

 

so i took at look at  your ioreg EDID dump. and the first thing i noticed is you have 1600x900 but its on a 17" vs 14" so here is an EDID that you could try that has the same info - but i tweaked the params slightly (changed) to match the values work for me but with proper sizing.

 

see 4 value changes on line 50

 

your EDID

@tetonne

- that EDID is only for YUM (or others) with 17" LCD 1600x900!

 

are you getting glitches or hangs with your default/built-in EDID? you have 1366x768 native LCD?

 

here one for you with just the panel size changed - for 14" 1366x768. from 309x173 to 310x174mm

are you getting glitches or hangs with your default/built-in EDID? you have 1366x768 native LCD?

No glitches or hangs on my 1600x900 and 1376x768 with dualink 0 (dualink 1 doesn't work here)

but better customs are welcomed :)

 

I test the EDID provided

@tluck, thanks for your hard work on this, it's appreciated really.  I have the same edie like yum, i have controlled it by yum link in some previous post. I think that also laptop is probably same family with same screen 1600x900 on 17 inch. 

So i try your custom edie, i have past it directly in display/overrides and it is seen correctly but i have always artifacts, after 2-3 reboot or something of similar. Problem for me is still unsolved for now. I can try other if you have other ideas. I think that will be same for iim cause original edie is the same. 

But why all this is happen on clover instead on chameleon (and/or smcping daemon) there is not this artifacts problem?

Btw thanks

@Smith@@ - how are you injecting the EDID? i found that putting one in /S/L/Displays/Overrides does not actually override the built-in EDID! However, I found that if I put a new/different EDID in the DSDT or inject by clover then the system will use it. it seems that if the system can find one in the LCD hardware, it will use it versus use one in an Override file.

 

I have been trying to figure out what is special about the EDID that works for me versus the built-in. i don't know why my built-in EDID is glitchy but an alternative EDID is absolutely perfect. And i had glitches on Chameleon/MBR before i switched to Clover.

@tluck i think that your theory about override is right because with same edid in previous post, that for yum (my model is in fact exactly the same), if i override it in display/overrides and so in vanilla method, i see in profiler that name is correct (LCD HP in this case) but override is probably not complete, if instead use the same last edie in clover i have completely black screen after all loading verbose end screen begin always more bright, it throb, vibrates and then nothing.

 

So i think that i must try all from clover. Can you make a new edie for testing? ;)

 

Ed: i have another question, now i have injected original edid with clover. But The COMMENT in graphics setting, in this case i choose "GLITCHES?" is different from name in monitor profiler, i mean, name is taken always from original override in Display/Overrides. But i think that clover EDID is working cause with previous edid had black screen with original not. But about name is right? There should be also an override of COMMENT parameter from clover?

@tluck, thanks so much for all help. I have done same smith@@ tries and result is the same. Now i'm starting to inject the edid directly from clover. I will test your other edid

this is what you need to put in your config.plist - it this is a modified EDID (detailed timing section) but has the same product/vendor.

In test, but i see already one artifact, but still in testing.  But before question, i should see this: HP 17" 1600x900 in System Preferences --> Monitor --> Colors ?

 

Or not, because seems that name is not override correctly..

 

Edit: artifacts again.. :(     but i don't understand about before question, if edie is override correctly

Maybe chameleon and clover read something in different way. Common problem is artifacts on clover and more less (avoid totally with smcping daemon) on chameleon. If i can understand what is that "something", but honestly i have done practically every form of tries LOL

 

 

Can be also my 16 GB of ram, but i had the same problem also with 8. On mavericks then patch intel kext for "downgrade" gram is not work. It see for intel always 512 MB of ram

      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method:You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      -2nd and I think the best method:Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Zcard (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode:UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the install zip (bootpack & postinstall): Click here -> acer_aspire_v591g_installfiles.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R.

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.7 beta 5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Mojave please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Mojave & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart
      list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4)
      sel vol 4
      list part(Select System type partition, for example 2)
      sel part 2
      assign letter=b(This will "mount" your EFI partition)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI)
      2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      Hi.
      I apologize in advance if I didn't post in the right category and if my title and description aren't specific enough :c
       
      My config in a nutshell:
      CPU: i7 5820k GPU: MSI GTX 1060 3GB RAM: 16 GB MOBO: MSI X99 SLI PLUS I attached RunMe output with all the details of my built.
       
      Some background:
      I have my Hackintosh for about half a year. That time I managed to make it works and fix major issues, but some of them left unresolved since then and I ignored them until now.
      I use my Hackintosh for Adobe projects (PR, AE, PS, IL, AU and a lot more) - most of them connected with video editing of course browsing with Chrome and other small tasks.
       
      Problems:
      Random restarts - this is the biggest one. I'm starting to work on bigger and bigger projects and at this time I think I can't allow this to happen that often. In the past, they happened like once a day or a couple of times a week. However, now it's just frustrating when it happens even 5 or more times a day. I've tried to observe and find out what can be the cause but I haven't managed to find any connections. I thought it happens when Premiere or another app is using GPU, but I haven't seen increased usage when it restarts. I think that it can be connected with GPU, memory or PSU or... meh, anything else. I don't have resources to check if it'll work with other components. There should be some fix for this. I will really appreciate any help with this :c Restart instead of shutdown & sleep doesn't work. I've tried to look through some Google results for this and tried many solutions (as you can see in attached Clover folder), but I think the right one for many of these issues is to make my own DSDT. Glitches, freezes and other things while encoding a video. It happens very often when I try to do this. Maybe it is an issue with GPU or (hopefully) only with GPU drivers which can be fixed with some patch. Today my headphones stopped working. I have a multi-output device configured in the Audio MIDI Setup app which includes my headphones (HyperX Cloud via USB) and Soundflowerbed virtual audio device for capturing system audio. Today while I was trying (like 15 times) to encode a video in Media Encoder in the background and watch video on YouTube I stopped hearing anything from my system. Of course, it restarted a couple of times as always, but even this didn't solve this. If I plug them directly with mini jack (not via USB Soundcard which was in the box and which I always used) in the front IO or the back I only hear some loud noise It takes EX-Fat formatted volumes a few minutes to mount after each restart. I found a workaround to format it with NTFS since I have Tuxera installed and I will reformat these volumes when I will find time for this, but maybe there is some fix for this. GPU is a little bit hot. HW Monitor shows it is only 45-55 degrees, but for my hand is a little bit hot, idk. Also related to GPU - glitch after POST but before entering Clover boot menu. It is a black screen with little white squared glitches for a few seconds. Maybe it indicates the GPU drivers are loading, but maybe it shouldn't be like this. And if I can ask about that - I can't make all applications hide on startup. I, obviously, have "Hide" checkbox checked on every login item in settings, but it doesn't work, none of the apps is hidden in the dock. Is there a way to fix this? Also a small but annoying problem - I can't turn off permanently Mojave update notification (since I tried to install it, and I had to reverse to High Sierra because I had a black screen and I didn't have time for repairing all of them. Tags are not working in Finder - every time I tag a file or folder and make a change in it (for example save a text file) the tag disappears.  
      So, with knowing all of that, is there a way to make a proper DSDT file for my Hackintosh? I tried to look through some guides on how to make it but I think I reached my abilities to understand how Mac OS works and what all of these things are, so I'm asking you guys politely, would someone like to help me? At least with these random restarts? :/
      I really begin to think that I'm a newbie in configuring all of that Clover things - even after what I managed to do with my PC. Help me, pleease... :c
       
      If you have any questions post it below, I will really appreciate any help <3

      Hi, I followed the rehabman guide (linked in the vanilla guide on the side of r/Hackintosh, not sure if I can link it) for laptops for my yoga 730ILW13 with an 8265u, Conexant 11870, 8gb of ram, 13.3" fhd and I found that upon booting the installer usb I get this weird issue where the screen displays what it should but the screen is incredibly dim (though it was off before using a flashlight on it) and it flashes every few seconds for a few milliseconds to the correct brightness, I used the plist for hd615-650 (including my 620), not quite sure what could be the culprit, first time hackintoshing a laptop so it might be a stupid brightness kext I forgot but didn't find any in that post or in this forum :c 
      Attached the clover zip so that anyone with more experience than me might give an idea in what could be a way to fix this.
      Thank you in advance

      TLDR:
      I'm trying to boot MacOS on a Chromebook without UEFI. I'm stuck at getting the bootloader (Chameleon/Clover) to work.  
      My setup / context:
      I have an Acer Chromebook Spin 13.
      Available ports:
      2 x USB-C 1 x USB-A 3.0 MicroSD Slot No USB A 2.0 (I've read that Clover has problems with USB 3.0) Firmware:
      There's no UEFI firmware available and by default, it doesn't even allow booting anything other than ChromeOS. Thanks to MrChromebox (big shoutouts!), I flashed a custom legacy bios that allows me to boot anything linux related. This bios is flashed into the RW_LEGACY section of the existing bootloader (coreboot afaik) and doesn't have any configuration options. If I have to change a setting, I could try compiling his bios payload myself with the specific setting enabled.  
      What I've tried so far:
      Chameleon attempts:
      Only selected setting was "Install chameleon on the chosen path", rest was unselected.
       
      1 - Install chameleon first without restoring the basesystem:
      Output:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: done
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_BEFORE".
       
      2 - Install Chameleon after restoring the base system:
      Output:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: doneboot1: /boot       <- Exactly like that, no line break in between
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down)
       
      I haven't been able to reproduce #2 after wiping the drive and doing the same thing again. Subsequent attempts have resulted in either #1 of either Chameleon or Clover.
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_AFTER".
       
      Clover attempts:
      I tried multiple settings and configurations, but all of them boiled down to either one of these.
       
      1 - Doesn't do anything, just hangs at "Booting from usb..."
      2 - Boots into the blue/grey mode as shown in the attached images.
      According to MrChromebox, this could be an old Tianocore DUET It doesn't detect anything (cpu frequency, ram, partitions or disks)  
      I've read pretty much every article, github readme and other types of documentation for coreboot, tianocore, clover, chameleon and MrChromebox' rw_legacy payloads and right now, I'm totally clueless as to what to try next...
       
      A few questions that came up:
      Why does chameleon hang? What is it looking for, /boot was clearly written to the disk by the Chameleon installer? What exactly is the blue/grey image? According to MrChromebox, it could be Tianocore DUET Where does it come from? Clover? The mainboard itself? Why does the blue/grey thing not detect my processor frequency or any partitions/drives? Can I use some sort of DUET bootloader to chainload Clover?  
      If you guys could answer any of them or if you have any other guesses or information as to what's happening, I'd be really happy!

      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.
