Hello dear Insanelymac family!
I have a problem with my hackintosh. Everything is working, imessage, facetime, etc.
One thing is bothering me, the cpu management.
Somehow the OS can't handle Turbo unlock at all.
My Xeon 2620-v3's base frequency is 2.4GHz, and it can be turbo boosted to 3,2GHz. Its a huge difference, so i need it absolutely.
Im using clover r5116 as bootloader. I checked my CPU section inside clover, and it recognizes my cpu can be turbo boosted to 3.2, but inside the OS, nothing happening.
Here is a screenshot:
What can i do now? How can i reach the turbo unlock?
I did the xeon-v3 turbo unlock tutorial by myconist already. No changes.
Thanks in advance.
Hi, I'm having trouble with installing Catalina with OpenCore. The installer has started, progressed for half an hour or so and rebooted the machine. Then in OpenCore menu a new item, referring to my hard drive, has appeared so I've selected it. After displaying a lot of logs (most kexts I'm using is in debug mode), typical Apple's loading bar appears - black screen, white apple, empty loading bar underneath. And it hangs at this place forever. Any ideas what it might be?
My config is: i7-4770K, Asus Gryphon Z87 mobo, Intel HD4600 iGPU.
It's been known that there is indeed support for VGA in Coffe Lake and that support for prior iGPUs was deprecated as the VGA port was removed since Sierra. However, using port patches in Devices Properties (Open Core), I made the VGA port to work again with graphics acceleration.
But there's a catch, the port is glitchy. Once macOS displays the accounts, you can see the Enter Password box with the blur effect. But after some seconds, the whole display will turn to another color (depends on the background). I'm not sure why that happens.
I would suggest learning what are Ports, Connectors, Indexes, Types, and BusIDs before continuing, otherwise, you would get lost.
These are the patches that are supposed to enable the VGA port according to the Whatevergreen Intel guide:
06020000 02000000 30000000 // Option 1
06020000 01000000 30000000 // Option 2
None of those ports seem to work. The first problem is that the Index is 6, which does not make any sense as the Azul framebuffer only supports up to 3 Indexes (software ports). So we first have to change the Index for the VGA port on your motherboard, which is 2 (physical port is 0x06)) for me.
So that means that the target port is the Index 2, which is 02040A00 00040000 87000000.
bus-id 4 is for DP so we would change that to 2, which is VGA. That is according to what Hackintool says. I also proved other bus-ids but none of the other ones seem to work.
I have no idea what pipe does so I just type zeros.
I think pipe is basically another way group ports. So later I changed that to 10, which is 0A in hex. That means pipe remains the same as it was originally. 02020A00 01000000 87000000
The next part is the connector-type, for which I used 02000000.
I tried the VGA connector-types that Hackintool suggested but I noted some weird differences whereas 02000000 and 01000000 seem to work okay.
Finally, I don't know what flags do so I tried with 30000000 and 87000000. The only difference is that with 87000000 I'd gain more seconds before the whole screen turns to another color.
This is the final configuration:
framebuffer-con1-alldata <02020A00 0100000 87000000>
This is the video proof:
