i just posted a new bundle in my guide (I will see if Kogen is still active to put a link to this new Guide on the top page).

 

Clover UEFI on T420 Guide

 

Notes:

--------------------

14-Mar-2014

  • Tweaked custom DSDT.aml files and config.plist to add current patching

    added OEM config.plist options: 

    1 ) config.plist - (default) to use the custom DSDT and WITH extra Clover patching

    2 ) config.nopatch.plist - (old way) uses custom DSDT but no Clover patching

    3 ) config.nodsdt.plist - testing - remove DSDT.aml and use built-in DSDT with Clover patching (Note: battery will not work)

     

  • Updated AppleIntelE1000e.kext v3.0.4.1
  • Updated FakeSMC.kext to v6.0.1148 

-------------------------------------------------------------

I am still not 100% convinced that the iasl optimization is doing anything bad - i see no difference personally - but sleep is working for me!

 

I have always posted a precompiled dsdt.aml file as well as the source dsdt.dsl so you can see the mods/edits/comments to create your dsdt etc and compile it however you like!

 

What I did mostly to update/add to this new DSDT I just posted is merge in a few recent clover mod/fixes. The new (default) config.plist will apply clover patches on top of the custom DSDT to continue to add more value.  Note: Clover can patch the built-in DSDT (bios version) and it get pretty much everything working (sound, sleep etc) with the exception of the Battery stuff. As i side effect, I posted config.nodsdt.plist to allow one to test etc.

 

@verleihnix

- see if this DSDT has the built-in stuff you might need?

- Battery- yeah i got a service battery flag in the menu-bar. so i used the Windows/Lenovo power management tool to "reset the battery". it discharges and recharges the battery and perhaps updates some parameters. anyway the notice went away in OSX after i ran this tool.

 

@Terran Brown - i can't recall if folks were able to boot OSX off a disk in the caddy - i recall some chatter about that - you may have to flip/flop etc.

 

TLUCK,

 

I'm interested in your new approach (#3, remove DSDT.aml and use built-in DSDT with Clover patching) However, I found out that your "config.nodsdt.plist" still quoted to "dsdt.aml" which I believe that it will took the custom dsdt.aml under "ACPI/patched" (rather than using the built-in DSDT)

 

Pls kindly explain more about this new approach. Many tks.

@miaumaiu2 - glad voodooHDA is working for you X220. Otherwise, you may be able to take the AppleHDA i posted and (re)patch the AppleHDA.kext (move the original MacOS/binary back in place) with your codec. i patched it with bcc9 script from 2012 called patch-hda.pl using codec-id 14f1506e for the CX20590.

 

the display port should just work if you are using macbookpro8,1 or similar model as it has 4 buffers - LCD and 3 digital ones DP, HDMI, DVI, if you are using the config.plist its possible kext patch replacing the 4th buffer for VGA. you could try not doing that if you are?

 

@k.surachai - "I'm interested in your new approach (#3, remove DSDT.aml and use built-in DSDT with Clover patching)"

well i thought it would be obvious! - remove DSDT.aml

 

so in more detail.

1) you copy config.nodsdt.plist to config.plist

2) (effectively) remove (or rename) the DSDT.aml files in both ACPI/patched folders

3) on boot, Clover will not find these folders/files and then use the built-in DSDT from BIOS to start the patching.

 

Note: i just rename both ACPI folders to ACPI.x - it is ok to mention dsdt.aml in config.plist even if not there or not found.

Thank you very much for your help tluck, your guide is very comprehensive and your work is amazing.

 

I also have a X220 and the same display port problem. Deleting the VGA patch from the config.plist didn't help. I changed the bios setting from Thinkpad LCD to Digital because otherwise I wouldn't get signal out. Now I get to Clover Bootloader but shortly after the system starts loading I get KP. I send a couple of images attached. Any ideas?

 

I'm booting from a external usb though I don't think that makes much of a difference...

@espamac -
huh wonder why DP is not live? i don't see any KP in these pics? these 2 pics just seem to show verbose output of boot - but without going to gfx mode at the end?

 

hmm i would not put the boot device to digital - LCD seem right to me. 

 

what do you have for system type and what are listed as frame buffers? do you specify snb-platform-id 

 

do you have a custom dsdt or are you using clover to patch it? i don't have an X220 - just assuming it very similar to T420

 

my 4 framebuffers:

1 LCD

2 DP on side

3 DP on dock 

4 VGA on side - when patched by clover - otherwise DVI on dock

 

capture

ioreg -l  > ioreg.txt

 

and look for start of this section

@tluck

 

Again many thanks, you are of great help

 

If I set my BIOS to Thinkpad LCD the signal doesn't get out and the external display shows NO-DVI signal.

 

In any of the other BIOS display settings I can get Clover to show on the display. After the last line (VM Swap Subsystem is ON) the computer reboots. I can't get past that.

 

My system is MacBookPro 8,3. Is 8,1 better? How can I change it?

 

I'm using the same updated package you posted the 14th of march and the rest of the system seems to work fine. I upload my complete EFI folder just in case, since I can't find any frame buffers listed.

 

In the Ioreg file I get this which I honestly have no clue of what it means, though I'd love to learn...

I also have this information:

 

"DisplayProductID" = 728

 

"DisplayVendorID" = 12516

 

 

 

I've placed the ssdt.dsl file on the Patched folder along side the dsdt you posted. Should I change generate c and p states to "false" in the config.plist file?

 

Again thanks

ah! well yes i believe, mbp8,3 uses the 2nd buffer table which has single buffer for LCD which is what is showing in the output.

versus mbp8,1 which has the 4 buffers LCD + 3 for DP/HDMI/DVI

 

you can either set the model to macbookpro8,1 or inject property AAPL,snb-platform-id=0x00000100

 

to make clover use mbp8,1 change/add this to SMBIOS section of config.plist

 

<key>SMBIOS</key>

<dict>

<key>BiosVersion</key>

<string>MBP81.88Z.0047.B27.1102071707</string>

<key>ProductName</key>

<string>MacBookPro8,1</string>

<key>SerialNumber</key>

<string>W89F9196DH2G</string>

<key>Trust</key>

<true/>

</dict>

@tluck

 

Thank you so much!

 

MacBookPro 8,1 was the issue. It works now.

 

I have another problem though. The changes I make in the config.plist don't make any change. On the contrary I can only change the product name if I change it on the Clover Boot Options menu, which is a little bit annoying. Any way you can make the config.plist "prevail" over the clover boot options?

@espamac - which config.plist are changing? there are 2.

 

/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist                                              setup for OSX installers or virgin OS. 

/EFI/CLOVER/OEM/<product-board-id>/config.plist   edit/change this one for normal use.

Hey truck,

 

funny someone had the same problem... I also had figured out I need to set to MacbookPro8,1 which I did (Clover was setting MacbookPro8,3). However, the problem persists.

 

Looks like I also only have one frame buffer, but why?

This is using your DSDT. I tried using the one I had for ML, but ports don't work there either (though I haven't tried ioreg there).
 
Also have this in the logs:
 
21/03/14 16:08:58,000 kernel[0]: [AGPM Controller] unknownPlatform
 
There is a fix here for it I could try, can I somehow patch using Clover or does it only patch binaries?

well something is not right. it looks like MPB8,1 is not set right? capture your /EFI folder and and "ioreg -l" output and post. 

 

are you using the OEM folder? meaning which config.plist are you editing? 

 

AGPM should pick up the  IGPU device in the MBP8,1 key (again if set right.)

This is weird... I must be doing something wrong because I'm editing the config.plist on the OEM folder! I even deleted the other config.plist. But still it only changes to 8,1 if set in the Clover boot options...

@Espamac

Relax, and take a deep breath...

 

First, don't delete the config.plist outside of your 'OEM' folder. That's clover's main configuration. If it doesn't exist, Clover will start up with default settings which are not specific to our thinkpad systems. Second, if you intend to use the OEM folder, the config.plist should reside within another folder within OEM folder. It should be named whatever your system id is. So for example my config.plist is in /EFI/CLOVER/OEM/2349GCU/config.plist

 

if your config is not in the right place, it won't be read.

 

EDIT: Sorry Tluck, you posted your response while I was still typing mine. I think I'm way off on Espamac's problem

@sheep_reaper

 

Thank you! The config.plist is already in the OEM/4291BG/ folder so it theoretically should be reading it alright. 

 

@tluck 

 

I'm gonna try your suggestion and will post back the results, again thanks for your time.

this maybe all you need in the config.plist for the SMBIOS section.   it was enough to make my box a MBP8,3 when i changed the 1 to 3.

 

<key>SMBIOS</key>

<dict>

  <key>BoardVersion</key>

  <string>MacBookPro8,1</string>

Ok, back on track... I had only changed one of the values. I now have 4 frame buffers. However, when connecting to my External Display via Displayport it crashes. Not mavericks, the display! I can't switch sources our even turn it off anymore and need to unplug it... Never knew Monitors could Crash.

I switched to sot's DSDT and it looks better in the logs, but still freezes my external monitor (black screen, no more reaction on button presses)

EDIT 2: I suspect it has to do with hardware acceleration not working... no ripple effect on dashboard. But hey the unknown platform is gone

 

EDIT 3: Nope, hardware acceleration works, I have ripples :-) But still no progress on display port monitor. Looks like display is added and removed. is it normal?

@miaumiau2 - weird that your monitor is acting up/crashing? is the cable DP to DP? does it work ok under windows? what resolution are setting in the system prefs tool?

I've done that to my monitor before. I have an Acer 19" LCD from like 5 years ago. It only has a vga port, but its EDID Allows it to pnp and Windows hot detects it just fine. But one day, out of the blue it stopped working. After a reboot or two, it came back on, But windows was calling it a non-pnp monitor. I said 'that's odd...' Up until then it was always detected by name and its driver loaded and everything. But that day it just showed non-pnp monitor. Then I noticed that a whole bunch of new resolutions and refresh rates opened up. And I thought, well awesome, let's see if we can't tweak these. So stupidly, instead of realizing that Windows could not correctly communicate with the monitor (so it couldn't probe for valid res+rr) I set about picking combinations that i'd never used before.

 

Some of them made the screen go rainbow.. some of them made the rainbow kind of twinkle like tripping on acid... some cut off a portion of the image, and the auto-adjuster couldn't fix it ... the last one i tried made the screen go completely black. At no point did I see an OSD message about an invalid resolution. My Gateway 21" on the other hand let's you know when you screwed something up. So I slowly wept when the monitor didn't come back on after the 15 sec confirmation reset. The light remained amber and I though I had blown it up. But lo, when I rebooted, it came back on, and cried some more. (So pathetic to get attached to your toys. But you tend to appreciate them more when every piece of equipment you have is a hand me down or a garbage pick or an inheritance from work you do on other's computers.)

 

So after all of that, while doing doing some cable management a few days later, I found that one of my 2 dip{censored}, butthole, {censored} cats had chewed (almost) through several cables, including, to my surprise, my vga cable. I examined it thoroughly and found that some of the wires were exposed and possibly shorting. I was amazed because the jacket on this cable was really thick. Even thicker, some of my AC cables had deep punctures in them. I almost wish they'd have been a little deeper...

 

Anyways, I replaced the vga cable, and the monitor started working properly again. It was detected correctly in Windows and I was once again restricted to only valid res+rr. Driver loaded and everything.

this maybe all you need in the config.plist for the SMBIOS section.   it was enough to make my box a MBP8,3 when i changed the 1 to 3.

 

SMBIOS

 

  BoardVersion

  MacBookPro8,1

  ProductName

  MacBookPro8,1

  Mobile

 

  Trust

 

 

@tluck

 

Something was wrong with my install. The config.plist wasn't loading. I did a fresh install and pasting that into the config.plist solved it. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi tulck, 

 

My external monitor(Dell U2211H) not work no matter using VGA cable , DP cable or DVI cable(on dock). Everything works fine under Win8 exclude the hardware bug.

I can guaranty the setup is fully follow the steps in your guideline.

 

when I close the lid , It can be boot into clover screen and choose MAC OS ,splash screen spin normal, then go to balckscreen(without input signal), automatic  reboot system again.

check with `bdmesg` show it loading right the OEM config.plist without errors happen. My T420 is 4180CTO(get to know from bios). the hardware is almost same like your's except CPU (i7 2820 BGA TO PGA)

 

if i remove the /System/Library/Displays/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-30e4, the phenomenon is same like external monitor have...automatic reboot. So maybe need update DisplayVendorID for external monitor.

 

I try to generate my specific monitor edid under MAC but fail when I log in safe and verbose mode using genedid.sh . because it cannot detect get any information of external monitor in this  mode.

`ioreg -l` only find built-in monitor.

 

So I try to get edie under linux  //using this same monitor connect another pc with centos installed:

but i don't know  how to get DisplayProductID , DisplayVendorID and other parameters of Dell U2211H.

 

Hi tulck, could you please help me here? I really don't have a clue for this problem.

Any more information you may want me show you,please let me know.

 

 

Installation

 

Usb clean install

Boot with CLOVER uefi only

Post-install

1. Use OEM folder and config.plist as is, install custom kexts by Kext Utility from zip to /System/Library/Extension. 

2. Reboot - hit spacebar on your boot selection to restart without kext caches to make sure it loads custom kexts just installed.

3. Create custom SSDT for proper P/C states to match system and put it into OEM folder

@plinux - hmm. what is your Product Model set? if set to MBP8,1 then there will be 4 frame buffers. if you have different product set it may not have 4 buffers. i just added an explicit setting of MPB8,1 to my clover files but have not published this new config yet. anyway....

 

the DSDT and/or clover config.plist for the 1600x900 display,  sets the built-in LCD EDID to be vendor 30e4 product 2e2.  the System Display Override file is  a match for this vendor/product and  OSX reads from the supplied EDID and looks for this file to get other Display params and setting.  this file is not required.

 

if you attach an external monitor, the EDID for that monitor is read and if OSX and looks at vendor/product and if a matching Display file is there,  it will read it. again that file is not required.  For example, i use a 24" HP monitor attached via DP to DP. there is no Display Override file for this monitor.    when i attach a monitor to the DP it auto senses the presence and then uses  the 2nd or 3rd frame buffer depending on  whether it is attached to the Side port or Dock Port. 

 

here are 2 commands to run and capture....

 

ioreg -l | grep EDID

ioreg -l | grep -i framebuffer | grep -v IOK 

 

shows the 2 frame buffers in use. anyway the Vendor ID and Product ID are in bytes 9-12

to answer your question .... from your EDID...

origEDID=00ffffffffffff0010ac5e404c3436371714010380301b78eeee95a3544c99260f5054a54b00714f8180d1c001010101010101010101023a801871382d40582c4500db0b1100001e000000ff004d463158583036383736344c0a000000fc0044454c4c205532323131480a20000000fd00384c1e5311000a2020202020200074

 

bytes 9-12 are:

 

10 ac 5e 40

 

so the 

vendorID =10ac

productid=405e

 

the product bytes are swapped. 

 

EDIT - more info...

 

@miaumiau2 and plinux - 

 

here is a nice post with a tool that may address your external monitor issues for Dell. builds a property display override.

@plinux - cool.

 

I just posted a new bundle to the guide with model MackBookPro8,1 explicitly called out - given the recent number of incidents where the model is not set to this expectation.

Note: I have been booting with UEFI lately (last few months vs MBR off usb) and the random sleep/wake or PS2 problems seem to be gone!

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu 
       
       
       
      STEP 3 - Stop Windows Boot manager from overriding Clover boot manager
       
      How to stop Windows boot manager from overriding your Hackintosh Clover boot manager when using dual booting between macOS and Windows

      Dear @tluck 
       
      I have a T460s 20F9-003HUS - I5-6300U 2C 2.4GHz, FHD non-touch, 8GB DDR4, PM961 NVMe, vPro, AMT, etc.
      http://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/ThinkPad_T460s?M=20F9003HUS
       
      I have been following the following thread to hackintosh my T460s:
       but it's very long and hard to sort through, so I thought I'd start a new thread specifically for this issue
       
      Personally, my model has been doing pretty good with just the T460 EFI from github.  I did run the scripts to create and patch a new DSDT, though, after installing patchmatic and iasl.  I also manually installed VooDooPS2Controller.kext by following the guide on RehabMan's git wiki. 
       
      I also re-installed my kexts from CLOVER/kexts/other using kext helper to build them into the kext cache
       
      My only glaring issue is the touchpad.  It's unusably bad, I've had to use a mouse which kinda sucks on a laptop.
       
      It'll be really slow and then all of the sudden be really fast.  It hangs and skips intermittently.  Kind of hard to describe but it's {censored}. 
       
      So far I've tried: 
       
      installing latest version of VooDooPS2Controller, urning off all gestures, modifying speed, patching DSDT with autogen scripts (iASL, patchmatic). 
       
      Has anybody seen this problem?  What do you recommend I do?  
       
      Happy to provide any logs anyone believes would be relevant via pastebin, etc. 
       
      Thank you!

      This was spurred on from a discussion in the Clover General thread. Where there was a debate on bcdedit being able create/read/edit (U)EFI Boot entries. I didn't think it appropriate to post all this information there and somebody may want to make use of this and its likely to get lost in that massive thread.
       
      Out of curiosity I decided to see if I could create an EFI entry using bcdedit. What can I say I like a challenge.  Whilst is not a documented method by Microsoft, as it turns out in a round about way it IS possible to create an EFI entry using bcdedit and these are the steps I went through to add UEFI Shell located on a USB stick to the EFI entries. 
       
      Third party software is available that can create and edit UEFI entries from Windows with better support and more features. I'm just making this information available in case those options are unavailable. 
       
      DISCLAIMER - This is not a supported method. Use at your own risk. I recommend backing up your BCD/Firmware variables/settings beforehand.
       
      1) Copy {bootmgr} entry.
      C:\Windows\System32>bcdedit /copy {bootmgr} /d "UEFI Shell" The entry was successfully copied to {34e8383c-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5}. 2) Edit the new entry using the new GUID bcdedit generated in the copy step.
        a) Set the device and path for UEFI shell on my USB stick.
      bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} device partition=G: bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} path \EFI\SHELL\SHELLX64.efi   b) Clean up some of the stuff that was copied from {bootmgr} (optional as far as I can tell, just makes things tidier in bcdedit)
      3) Put the new EFI entry first in boot order. (optional)
       
      After completing the steps above, here is what "bcdedit /enum firmware" shows:
       
      I shutdown my computer and when I turned my computer back on it booted up into UEFI Shell. After exiting the shell my PC went on to boot Windows.
      Here is the resulting dump using "bcfg boot dump -v" from that shell:
       
      You may notice that the shell shows as "Windows Boot Manager" in the bcdedit output. This I believe is because of the "WINDOWS" at the beginning of the option data that bcdedit added to the EFI Boot entry. I also believe this why bcdedit shows my Windows 8 installation as "Firmware Application" because it has no option data. I don't know how to remove this data using bcdedit nor do I know how the option data, that bcdedit adds, will affect other EFI applications.

      There might be a way to create the EFI entry without copying the Windows entry but if there is I'm unable to find any documentation on how one would do so. If you use the create command then it just puts it in the BCD and I'm unaware of a way to tell it to create it in EFI instead, other than by doing the above.

      Small tool to download, compile and build the latest Clover X64 package.
       
       
       

      The script inside is editable.

       
      Enjoy...
       
      Many thanks to the comrade SunKi for help with creating the script.
