Very happy with how everything is running. Got my windows install running in Fusion as a "Boot Camp" VM. Important to unmount the disks first as I'm usually mounting them R/W with Paragon. Launching the VM with the disks still mounted results in an immediate crash. Will look into writing a script to handle unmounting and launching safely.

Is there any solution for usb issues (Kernel panic) after sleep?

 

I still haven't found a solution for this issue.

Something should be out soon I hope.

I'm still researching this as well.  I didn't have any problems with Mavericks, but having all kinds of issues with Yosemite.

Yeah, I've just given up on sleep, everything works fine with sleep disabled. This computer is a media server for multiple households as well so it's not doing much sleeping as it is anyway.

My SSD died so I haven't been able to do any tests. But are you guys having issues and are not using the GenericUSBXHCI.kext?

I have this issue with or without that kext.

Hi,

 

I am having issues getting my system (see sig) to play nice.  This has all come around because I wanted better speed stepping that I could achieve using SMBios iMac13,2, by using Macmini6,2.

 

Anyway - I managed to get the system to boot using Macmini6,2 after realising it would not boot unless the intergrated graphics were enabled.  

 

If I boot the system with the IGPU(IGFX) set as primray in the BIOS and with my screen hooked up to the IGPU, it boots normally.  If I set the my nVidia discrete card as primary (PEGP) in BIOS and hook the screen up to that, it boots, but it takes like 30 seconds longer.

 

It gets through BIOS POST and Clover bootloader fine, but its when it is loading OS X that it comes to a crawl. 

 

There are a few clues that I have found that seem to be consistent in the console messages from boot, but I have been unable to find anything on the internet to suggest what might be causing it:

 

  • 08/11/2014 00:21:55.000 kernel[0]: [AGPM Controller] unknownPlatform  is referenced on each boot. Using attempted solution 2 below does seem to remove this, but does not solve the issue. 
  • 08/11/2014 00:22:05.093 stackshot[68]: Timed out waiting for IOKit to finish matching.  This is another consistently appearing line.
  • 08/11/2014 00:22:09.915 blued[61]: Logging disabled
The last two of these entires are around the time where there is the 20-30 second pause.  

 

I have tried all number of things to get it working using the clues I have from console, but I have not been able to come up with anything that boots properly. 

 

A couple of things I have tried:

  1. Various DSDT's - with discrete patch only, with HD4000 patch only, with discrete and HD4000 patch.
  2. Using Clover, I tried on-the-fly patching - changing GFX0 to IGPU as suggested from one site I Googled.

 

I am not a code expert so cannot understand really what DSDT files do, so I can't diagnose any issues from that side.  

 

My main aim is to use Macmini6,2 to get a couple of extra P-states for my 3770k, but having spent the last week trying to get it working, I am thinking of just sticking with iMac13,2... on that I get an idle state of 1.60GHz, and it throttles up to 3.70-3.90GHz when required.   I guess that so long as it throttles down when not in use so it isn't using as much power and prolongs the life of the CPU, I can live with that.

 

Any suggestions welcomed.  Thanks.

Try just sticking with the iMac smbios, the macmini causes other problems with quicktime, hardware acceleration. I'm using iMac with more states than I had with the mac mini smbios, I just use SSDT to generate more.

 

I have the 3770k also, put the ssdt in the acpi / patched folder along where you dsdt is 7LRjapW.png

That's mine I'm sharing, or generate your own with the script.

Hey kdp,

 

Thanks for the reply.  I have tried your SSDT and am still only getting P-States 16/37/38/39

 

I have no idea what yourself and everyone else on here with the 3770k are doing differently to me to get extra states?  What states do you get?  Can you think of some magical setting that I have missed that is causing this?

 

Tell you what would be awesome, and I know this may take up a bit of your time so understand if you can't be jacked;  if you could take some screenshots of all your BIOS settings (we have same board), your Clover config, your DSDT - just everything that relates to power management - and send them over.  I am going insane! 

 

If you can manage that, then great, thanks; but totally understand if you don't have the time.

 

Thanks.

How are you verifying your CPU states? just HW Monitor or are you watching them in console?

I have used MSRDumper and I have istat menus, which I believe works same way as hw monitor.

 

I also used AICPUPMI, which lists a shed load of states, but only ever registers 16/37/38/39.

 

Cheers

I'll look into this in a bit, in the mean time, I think maybe we should look into whether or not these things are reporting CPU states properly. MSRDumper is reporting the same thing you're reporting for me, despite the fact that other things are reporting other states.  So it's possible something with 10.10 has changed this. I've personally witnessed this SSDT file spit out at least 3 states in the "20's" range, which it is not doing with MSRDumper currently. I'll let you know if I find anything.

Hi kdp

 

Just wanted to bring to your attention a thread I have had going for a few days with a bit of history of what I have tried and am currently trying:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302288-cannot-get-speed-stepping-to-work-at-all/?do=findComment&comment=2081147

 

I am currently experimenting with xcpm - which gives me more P-states, but I am having a sporadic booting issue.  Any comments you have would be welcomed.

 

Thanks

Thanks Cobra,

 

I think for now I am just going to stick with non xcpm and ssdtPRgen -w 3 settings.  At least I get 16/37/38/39 - so the CPU is at least idling at a low state; saves energy and doesn't wear the CPU's life. 

 

I will keep an eye on developments, but am going to try and stay away from experimenting.  I am feeling like I am not using my computer any more, just pissing around with it.

heh.. I just came here to make sure you were aware of this, yeah I'm getting more states now too,  haven't seen any boot issues yet though, but I just changed it, will let you know if they arise / what I do about it.

I have Yosemite 10.10.0 working with Ozmosis. I'll do my best to edit this post with additional information on getting everything working.

 

I know it hasn't been that long, just curious if there are any updates

 

  • Install hnak's AppleIntelE1000e.kext.

 

I would assume this means this is not added to Oz bios? Aren't there two kexts needed to get both ports working?

 

I'm new to Ozmosis and still trying to figure things out. I'm currently using a preconfigured Ozmosis rom from a lovely German hackintosh forum.

I haven't had much time to use or observe behavior but I do know that ethernet kext are not added into bios so I had to add to EFI partition. Sound doesn't work, but VoodooHDA is in bios. Not sure about sleep, have yet to test this.

 

In any case there are obviously working versions of Ozmosis roms around but I would like to optimize everything as XP did prior to getting rid of his hack. Things have changed, methods have changed, and software has changed so it would be great to get a conversation going specific to this board as the Ozmosis thread is far too long and not specific. Maybe a new thread?

Is anyone running this board with HD 3000 graphics? I can't for the life of me get QE/CI acceleration to work, and it's driving me kinda nuts. My specs are:

 

Core i5-2500K

Z77X-UD5H, f16mod11 UEFI

8GB DDR3-1600

256GB Samsung 840 Pro

Clover r3142

OS X 10.10.2

 

I've not followed the guide in the OP to set Clover up, but I thought this might be a good place to pose the question. I'm not using a DSDT so I'm trying to get everything working via Clover injection, and the stupidest thing is that I know I've got this working before, but I then did a clean install and went the Chimera route, and can't remember what I did. Obviously, I'm now looking to go back to Clover.  :rolleyes:

 

I can boot fine until I attempt to inject a FakeID for the graphics, at which point the boot hangs. Verbose mode doesn't provide anything that looks very useful.

 

Obviously I can provide more info if anyone has a similar setup and thinks they might be able to help!

 

Cheers

 

e - ignore the specs in my signature. It's been a while since I logged in here and that reflects the system I had back in the Lion days, I've jumped back in to the world of Hackintosh since Yosemite was released.

      - macOS Catalina install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction  This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader
       
      Download the CloverEFI from official repository (used 5099) and install only with these options on "Install macOS Catalina":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - FSInject (I still don't know if it's really necessary)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - ApfsDriverLoader (Support to APFS partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - VBoxHfs (Support HFS/HFS+ partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - Memory fix drivers - AptioMemoryFix (Fix the memory management of de UEFI/BIOS)
      - UEFI Drivers - Additional drivers - NvmExpressDxe (If you are going to use NVMe)
       
      FileVault 2
       
      If you plan to use FileVault 2, you need to download additional drivers, since what comes with Clover is not up to date and use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.
      Follow instructions bellow:
       
      From current Clover installation, check these options to USB keyboard/mouse work on password screen:
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbKbDxe
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbMouseDxe
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      Download the versions 2.1.0 and 2.0.9 of AppleSupportPkg from: https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases
      We need the last version of AppleGenericInput.efi that is inside 2.1.0 and last version of AppleUiSupport.efi that is inside 2.0.9.
      OR download attached bellow.
       
      Put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
       
      That's it! FileVault 2 will work without problems.
       

       
       
       
      Make things works
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below according to your processor version.
      - Put all SSDT-*.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.8.0.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Copy the Clover Configurator to flash drive because you will need later.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC.kext, SMCProcessor.kext, SMCSuperIO.kext and UEFI driver (put VirutalSmc.efi inside /Volumes/EFI/EFI/drivers/UEFI/). I used the version 1.0.9.
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.9.
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.4.
      - Download the AppleALC.kext from here. I used the version 1.4.3.
      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
      - Download the IntelMausi.kext from here. I used the version 1.0.2.
      - Download the SmallTree-Intel-211-AT-PCIe-GBE.kext attached bellow to enable second ethernet.
       
      Important! If you are coming from my previous Mojave guide, please note that I am using some kexts from other repositories / authors.
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM94360CS)
       
      Works out of box (plug 'n' play).
       
       
      Now you can start the installation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is F10 (I use an 8th generation processor, so I don't need to upgrade)
       
      You can configure manually or load my BIOS profile.
       
      Manually:
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: BIOS - CSM Support to Disabled
      - Change value: BIOS - Secure Boot to Disabled
      - Change value: Peripherals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      or, BIOS profile
      You can use one of my BIOS profiles attached bellow.
      It's two versions. One stock (Geekbench 4: 5840/27384) and another with overclock [5.0 GHz] (Geekbench 4: 6360/30348)
      - Put the profile in the root of the flash drive at EFI partition.
      - Restart with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to Save & Exit.
      - Select Load Profiles.
      - Select last option and then the flasdrive in the list.
      - And finally choose MACOS_STOCK or MACOS_5GHZ.
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      Then:
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - Choose the flash drive (white icon).
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press ESC again and select the flash drive.
       
      Choose the internal disk (gray hdd icon) if not already selected.

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.

       
      Post installation
       
      Bootloader

      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to make the system disk bootable.

      Open the Clover Configurator from flash drive that you copied before.

      Mount and open the flash drive EFI partition. (Inside Clover Configurator, Mount EFI -> Select flash drive in Efi Partitions list -> Mount Partition -> Open Partition)
       
      Copy the EFI folder to desktop.
       
      Go back to Clover Configurator, unmount the EFI partition of the flash drive and mount and open the EFI partition of internal disk.
       
      Move the EFI folder from Desktop to EFI partition of the internal disk.
       
      Eject the flash drive.
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition of internal disk to /Library/Extensions and make kext cache, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
      Last thing
       
      Run this command in Terminal to disable hibernation (doesn't work in macOS):
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0  
       
      It's done!
       
       
      System Updates
       
      10.15.2
       
      Before install, update the following kexts:
      - Lilu.kext. I used version 1.4.0.
      - WhateverGreen.kext. I used version 1.3.5.
      - AppleALC.kext. I used version 1.4.4.
      (all download links above)
       
      Download the latest CLOVERX64.efi.zip build. I used version 5100.
      Mount EFI partition and unzip to:
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi
      - /Volumes/EFI/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi (rename the copy of CLOVERX64.efi to BOOTX64.efi
       
      Install update. Will reboot at leats four time.

      For AirDrop and Handoff you need a compatible Broadcom Wifi+Bluetooth card. I bought a BCM94360 card with a PCI-E adapter, it's OOB. Currently waiting for arrive, will report back.  
      Issues
      Sometimes I hear crackling sound (just on Catalina 10.15.1, didn't happen on 10.15 or before) If you don't have this issue please let me know.  
      Before updating to newer versions, update your kexts! (and Clover if necessary)
      Generate a new serial with Clover Configurator
      Download the Clover folder: Z77P-D3-catalina.zip

      - There is no need for Whatevergreen.kext 
      - The HD 4000 is working with- or without a graphics card (headless with IntelQuickSync)
      - RX 5700 (ASUS RX 5700 GAMING OC 8 G) working OOB, just delete WhateverGreen.kext (causes black screen)
       
      Triple-Boot Win 10 and Linux (in my case it's Manjaro) (on one drive)
      Make sure your drive is in GPT and you're using UEFI If you have Win 10 installed then: Open diskmgmt (Disk Management), then Shrink your existing Win 10 partition to create two new for Mac and (if you want) for Linux If you have Mac installed: Create a new partition for Linux and (or) Windows in FAT Simply format that partition in Linux, Windows, or Mac installer, then install the OS Copy your working Clover folder to the system's EFI drive If it's automatically booting to Win, open cmd in administrator and write: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi That's it, automatically booting to Clover and you can select your OS If your Linux doesn't show up in Clover make sure you have GUI/Scan/Linux=Yes in config.plist  
      Mount your EFI on Windows:
      Open CMD in administrator and write: mountvol b: /s Use Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator to manage the folder Pictures:

      Hi,
       
      I have recently installed Mojave. Went flawlessly. Then I upgraded to Catalina 10.15.1. Went almost flawlessly as well. The only problem I have detected so far is a problem with the sleep/wake cycle. It is possible to let the computer fall asleep, but no wake up then. Hard reset required.
      In the process of investigating I discovered that it is impossible to safe boot into safe mode. So I downgraded to Mojave, only to discover that the safe boot problem wast there too.
       
      These are my specs:
      Motherboard Gigabyte GA H77 D3H  rev 2.0
      MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.1 (Build 19B88)
      Kernel                         Darwin 19.0.0 x86_64
      RAM                            4.00 GB
      Model Identifier        iMac14,2
      CPU                            Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3225 CPU @ 3.30GHz
      Intel Generation      Ivy Bridge
       
      This is the output I get trying to boot with Clover and the bootflags: -v -x (I have also tried -v -x -f and UseKernelCache=no):
       

       
      Thank you so much in advance!

      Hi,
       
      I have upgraded from Mojave to Catalina 10.15.1. It went almost flawlessly. The only issue is the computer  not waking up from sleep. Just a grey screen. Hard reset is required. Of course I have been searching the Internet but to no avail.
      The sleep-awake cycle did work on Mojave.
       
      I have noted that it is now impossible to boot in save mode. Trying to do so produces  the message: " error loading kernel (0xe)" .
      Since I use Clover  I have  tried the bootflags -f en UseCache=no (in addition to -v en -x) .  I wonder if the last one is a Clover bootflag?
       
      Here are my specs:
      Motherboard Gigabyte GA H77 D3H  rev 2.0
      MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.1 (Build 19B88)
      Kernel                         Darwin 19.0.0 x86_64

      Any help is of course much appreciated!
