[Guide] Gigabyte Z77X UD5H Clover UEFI Install/Tweak guide

Hi guys,

 

I am still having massive problems with my Hack. 

 

I have tried using the F16g BIOS to see if that made any difference which it did not.  I disabled WoL in BIOS, no different.  

 

The system wakes on USB input when sleeping, but also it will not shutdown without starting back up again.

Does anyone have any more ideas?  I can't use El Cap properly until I get some solution to this :(  

Thanks

Attached are my BIOS settings if you want to compare them.

 

About waking on USB, do you mean when you press a key or insert something that uses USB?

 

Mine wakes if I press either the Magic Mouse, Trackpad or Apple Keyboard (All bluetooth obviously) and I think if I insert something USB based.

F16g is the latest beta version (on TweakTown). I use it with some mods (updated OROMs, updated VBIOS, added ASRock FireWire driver & Apple HFSPlus.efi).

What is your VBIOS version please and did you add HFSPlus.efi in the same way and location the Firewire driver is added to?

Strange... do you have ErP enabled/disabled in your BIOS?

Mine wakes on USB input when sleeping, but I would have thought this would be desirable to most people. I doubt there's any way to stop a real Mac from doing that either?

 

It does also do the restarting when shutting down thing too, which is annoying. Right now I've resorted to keeping it on or sleeping the whole time, though this is definitely not ideal.

 

e: ignore my signature, it hasn't been updated in years clearly. I'm talking about my Z77X-UD5H (still 2500K) system with 10.11.1.

Mind posting this BIOS for me to try?  I can't get El Capitan successfully installed using your script.  I think it has something to do with the BIOS revision.

Sent you a PM with the BIOS attached.

 

Would you mind sending to me your BIOS? I've had bad experiences with F16g and I would like to try yours.

 

By the way, my board is rev 1.0. Is your BIOS compatible with this revision?

 

Thanks in advance!

Rev 1.0 & rev 1.1 have the same BIOS. However, rev 1.0 has broken audio in OS X and Linux, and an older Qualcomm Atheros NIC (AR8151 v2.0 vs AR8161).

Try using the older F16 beta bios from tweak town in the previous bios releases thread. I too have issues with F16g but this does not surprise me at all because I discovered there are known issues with f16g (been reported on tweak town forums somewhere, I think somewhere in the 300-400 page mark in one of the massive threads).

 

The older F16 (no letter after name) bios doesn't have at least some of the problems F16g has. The bios I recently made for myself is just F16 bios, plus the FireWire EFI driver added and the sandy bridge gop video driver removed to free up some space. Since I have an ivy bridge processor that was the easiest thing to drop with no consequences and got some free space for inserting other stuff if needed later.

Hi!

 

Since I use Firewire & USB audio that's not a problem to me.

 

Thanks in advance!

I would like to try your BIOS. I'm also on Ivy Bridge, so it seems perfect for me, please send it to me.

 

Thanks in advance!

This is the F16 bios with the firewire driver added. It should work fine but proceed at your own risk etc. 

 

It is based on the GA-Z77X-UD5H - F16 -20.Aug 13 bios.
 
Firewire EFI driver was added using UEFITool v0.21.4, nothing else in bios has been changed.
Sandy Bridge GOP video driver was removed from bios to free up space so DO NOT use this if you have a Sandy Bridge processor. If you have an Ivy Bridge Processor then this is fine (example 3770k etc).
 
Other than that change it is the same as the F16 Bios obtained from the tweaktown post of previous beta bios list for the Z77XUD5H.

 

When you have a chance after testing it please let me know how it works for you  :)

 

I have attached the bios

 

Edit: I had originally posted a bios file with the Sandy Bridge GOP Driver removed. However in the interest of this being useful to more people and less chance of someone making a mistake I chose to change the attachment to the F16 Bios with just the firewire driver added. So this 'Z77XUD5H-Firewire.F16.zip' will work for anyone with ivy or sandy bridge. I have tested this new version myself and it seems to works fine.

Hi!

 

Your BIOS works great in my system, but it hasn't solved the problem I have related to FireWire: I'm using a PCIe StarTech FireWire card (2 800mbs ports + 1 400mbps port) and it is impossible to shutdown the computer with the card inserted, it just reboots again. Sleep doesn't work neither, it goes to sleep but immediately it wakes up.

 

I've been trying different BIOSes to no avail, this card seems to broke shutdown and sleep.

 

Any ideas on how to solve this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Sleep doesn't work neither, it goes to sleep but immediately it wakes up.

 

So Just to confirm you only have shutdown problem when that extra startech firewire card is installed? If its not installed, then your computer shuts off correctly?

 

With that bios are you unable to use the 2 firewire ports on motherboard? Unfortunately, I don't have any firewire devices anymore to test with. Could you test if the firewire port(s) from the motherboard work (one port is on the back and one is a header on the motherboard). I checked and the Rev 1.0 and 1.1 of the UD5H both have the same firewire chipset according to the specs on Gigabyte's website. The reason I ask is, assuming the motherboards firewire ports work, is the extra startech firewire card really necessary?

 

The firewire driver in the bios I posted is for the internal Firewire chipset that comes with the motherboard (VIA VT6308), it wont do anything for that startech card you mentioned that appears to use an LSI FW643 chip.

Yes, I only have shutdown/sleep problems when the StarTech 800mbps card (LSI FW643 based, as you mention) is connected. If I remove it, everything works ok.

 

Regarding onboard Firewire ports, they do work, but occasionally the system hangs. Since I use Pro Tools and a MOTU Firewire interface, an stable Firewire connection is a must for me. That's why I need a PCIe Firewire adapter.

 

Currently I'm using another Firewire card from StarTech (which only supports 400mbps) and with it there is no problem at all. But since I bought the 800mbps version first, I would like to put it to use.

 

It is good to know that your Firewire driver is useless in my setup, but anyway I've found your BIOS to be more stable than F16g. With F16g from time to time BIOS got stuck so the computer didn't boot, and I had to reset CMOS to use the machine again. This has never happened with your F16 version. Thanks!

 

Going back to the Firewire problem, is there anything I can do? In the thread I posted before everyone agrees in a BIOS poor Firewire implementation as the main source of problems with this LSI FW643 card. I've tried with every official BIOS version to no avail. I've also tried mods and betas (mainly F16 based) and I've had the same problems. Right now I use the 400mbps card, but maybe in the future I need 800mbps connectivity and I'm looking for possible solutions.

 

Thanks everyone!

Have you tried making a custom DSDT for your setup with the StarTech plugged in? Worth at least trying. A very useful hint for capturing a clean unmodified DSDT is to simply press F4 while on the clover bootloader screen. It wont give you any indicator that it did anything, but it will save a clean copy of your DSDT somewhere in the EFI partition you booted from. Quite a few guides on making DSDT suggest to set clovers DSDT to "null", changing other options, disabling stuff etc, in order to get an untouched DSDT, but using the F4 method is easier and faster. Plus it will guarantee you are getting a totally unmodified DSDT to start with which is what you want if your are planning on using Pjalm's set of DSDT patches with MaciASL (or likely any other persons DSDT patches).

 

I think it is worth attempting if you are willing to try. Perhaps someone else has a better idea, but I had a similar type of resetting issue with the UD5H motherboard that went away once i made a custom DSDT. In my case the thing that was causing me issues was trying to use my GTX 470 (which is so old it has no GOP Driver/UEFI support in the card's VBIOS :(). After making a DSDT with MaciASL using Pjalms patches for the Z77X-UD5H my sleep issues went away as well as some other side benefits for me related to the GTX 470. I seem to recall Pjalm's patches for this board having some fixes related to sleep/wake stuff so I think it is worth a shot, and why I mentioned it.

 

I'm definitely curious if you do come up with some kind of solution what it ends up being, or if anyone else has any suggestions you could try.

I've been using a custom DSDT since Pjalm started offering his patches. I've always extracted my DSDT using Clover and with the LSI FW643 plugged in. No dice...

Everytime Pjalm updates his repository of patches I update my DSDT, using the Clover extradited one as the starting point. No difference through all these years...

 

Thanks for sharing your ideas!

Rev 1.0 & rev 1.1 have the same BIOS. However, rev 1.0 has broken audio in OS X and Linux, and an older Qualcomm Atheros NIC (AR8151 v2.0 vs AR8161).

Hey RacerMaster, how do you recommend doing OS updates using your script?  I updated from 10.11.1 to 10.11.2 yesterday, and upon reboot, I had a kernel panic.

 

The update seems to have went OK, as the system is reporting 10.11.2 and it now boots fine.  However, I'm not entirely sure if it was successfully ran.

 

How do you do system updates?

What does the panic say? I've been running the 10.11.2 betas for a while now and yesterday upgraded to the final release and haven't encountered any panics. I update normally (App Store).

I wasn't able to catch it in time before my computer restarted.  It happened right before booting, so I'm just going to assume that the update succeeded.

Hi guys,

 

Been a while since I last read the forums.  It doesn't look like my issue has been solved yet, but I may have missed the solution. 

 

 

Has anyone managed to solve the wake-by-USB issue while asleep?  As suggested by...

 

WoL still works even with that disabled in the BIOS (I use it here too), I will be surprised if disabling that doesn't fix your restart problem.

 

... the system now stays shutdown when I want it to shut down, but I am unable to start the system from shutdown as was suggested in this thread with WoL disabled in BIOS and Wake for network access enabled in Energy Saver. 

 

Everything else appears to work as advertised.  Updated to 10.11.2 through App store without issue.

 

Thanks

I am not sure you can get WoL to work on a fully shutdown system and still have it turn off normally. Here I just use it to wake from sleep (Which doesn't turn the monitor on).

 

Isn't that more of a Network Boot type thing?

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F10, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
       
      CPU's
      8700k, 9600k, 9700k, 9900k
       
      GPU's
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII, 5700, 5700 XT
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
       
       
       @glasgood Has kindly put together a new simple Catalina install guide so Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install. (glasgood put the guide together for the Z390 Pro but the two boards are so alike that you can follow this guide with no problems at all using the Z390 Master)

      CLOVER EFI FOLDERS  
      please note - You must flash your Z390 MASTER bios to revision F10 to use any of these EFI's, The DSDT is not designed for any other Bios revision
      mb_bios_z390-aorus-master_f10.zip - Z390 MASTER Bios Revision F10
       
      Use this folder with igpu Enabled in bios for working Sidecar (Updated 1st Nov)

      To Create Your Own Patched DSDT Message @MaLd0n using the link bellow
      https://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1131 
      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Periphelrals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Periphelrals - USB Configuration - XHCI Hand-off to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - DVMT Pre-Allocated to 128M
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - It will show twice. One with UEFI prefix and another without.
      - Select with UEFI prefix. Ie.: "UEFI: Sandisk Cruzer"
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

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

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

      Post installation

      Install 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 install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your destination disk EFI parittion, with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      If the flash drive EFI partition of your destination disk or flash drive is unmounted:
      Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 0 for destination disk and 1 for flash drive.
       
      Then, eject the flash drive.
       
      Last step
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.14/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.6
       
      - Download and open latest CloverConfigurator
      - Open Mount EFI and click in Mount Partition in EFI Partitions list
      - Click in Open Partition that appears
      - Go to EFI -> CLOVER
      - Backup config.plist and ACPI folder to desktop
      - Go back and delete CLOVER folder
      (If you restart now you can't boot in macOS - DON'T RESTART)
      - Download latest Clover and install (link and config above)
      - Replace config.plist and ACPI folder from your desktop
       
      - Update Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext, WhateverGreen.kext, HWSensors kexts (FakeSMC, ACPIMonitor, IntelCPUMonitor, ITEIT87x) in /Library/Extensions/
      - Run:
       
      sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i /  
       
      - Install macOS Update 10.14.6 and restart
