Multiple issues - CPU Power Management & Graphics Drivers

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,
i just finished my installation of OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4 using this fantastic guide. Had a couple of hick ups forcing me to do most part in Safe Mode (-x), but I managed to boot from the HD onto the desktop. Eventually got my Realtek card set up and went on like a fool to download the latest graphics card drivers.

I installed the drivers by running the package (can´t remember the exact name - it was something along the lines of macbookpro bla bla .pkg), which I know realize was insanely stupid.

Before this (having removed most .kext files related to drivers) I could boot into desktop using -v dart=0. Now however, I can't get into the desktop at all, having tried various combinations of commands.

All I keep getting now is the following:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/owdx1efkviojneb/2013-07-02%2000.16.14.jpg

1) How do I solve this? I'm guessing I have to remove the drivers from the system by using the terminal in the OS X installer (via USB)

2) How would I go on about installing my drivers properly?

System specifications

Intel Core i7-3770
Kingston DDR3 HyperXblu 1600Mhz 16GB
MSI Z77A-G43
Asus GeForce 680GT

I've tried booting with it, without success.

 

If you referred to it being checked when I installed the drivers, there was no such option, seeing as it was a normal .pkg installer.

I re-installed OS X using the guide mentioned in my original post and I'm now able to boot into OS X.
 

However, how am I supposed to install nVidia drivers properly for my GT680?

      Buongiorno a tutti,
      E la prima volta che scrivo su questo forum, spero di non sbagliare nulla!
      Scrivo qua sperando che qualcuno di voi possa darmi una grossa mano, perchè ho letto di tutto, visto qualsiasi video possibile, ma non riesco proprio ad uscirne fuori.
      Ci avevo già provato 3 anni fa, ma ero riuscito solo su un notebook Sony, sul fisso non ero riuscito a fare nulla. Dicevano che c'erano problemi con i driver della serie Skylake, così ho voluto riprovare ora a distanza di anni.
      Premetto che non sono un informatico, non ho conoscenze particolari. Sono semplicemente un ragazzo che si informa, legge tutorial ed esegue, quindi chissà che la soluzione non sia in realtà una banale sciocchezza.
       
      Dunque, il problema consiste nel fatto che, in circa 8 ore di prove, non sia ancora riuscito ad andare oltre il caricamento del logo, dopo aver selezionato la chiavetta da clover.
      Sto cercando di installare High Sierra, ho provato con una chiavetta con un programma che non ho capito bene perchè, ma non posso scriverlo qui, e una con Clover Configurator (che tra l'altro, nella schermata boot mi da un'interfaccia diversa da quella che ho visto nel tutorial, o anche solo 3 anni prima), ma il problema è sempre lo stesso: dopo circa metà caricamento, o mi esce il simbolo di divieto, o si riavvia il computer, riportandomi nel boot di clover.
      Ho provato un po' di flags, come -v, -x, -s, -f, nv_disable=1 (tra l'altro, per evitare problemi al principio, ho impostato la scheda video di intel come primaria), cpus=1, dart=0, Slide=0, insomma, qualsiasi cosa leggessi in giro che avesse portato esiti positivi, la provavo
      Ho provato su porte sub 3.0, 2.0 e le 2.0 dietro al pc.
      Penso sia irrilevante, ma nel caso, sto usando una chiavetta da 32 gb.

      Nella firma dovrebbero esserci tutte le specifiche del mio PC, non so se debba postare altro. Nel caso scusatemi, ditemi pure cosa manca che la aggiorno.
      Spero davvero che qualcuno di voi possa aiutarmi. Ho un MacBook Air (High Sierra l'ho scaricato da qui) e ho scoperto quanto sia più affidabile usare Final Cut rispetto a quel bug chiamato Premiére Pro che ho usato per anni, e vorrei poterlo usare anche sul fisso, senza dover acquistare un iMac. Ho letto in giro che con Mojave non è supportata l'accelerazione grafica, per questo vorrei installare High Sierra.

      Grazie mille a chiunque vorrà aiutarmi!

      Hi guys,
       
      So, this little tutorial is meant to help people fix a new issue with Mojave: opening jpg files (looks like it happens with larger files, not so much with smaller ones) using Quick Look (on spacebar key pressed) or Preview app, using the dedicated GPUs.
      The issue is that, when trying to open jpg files (for some reason, it doesn't occur with pngs), the pop-up window would remain in an endless loop. And from that point forward, any other app trying to open the same file will either become unresponsive (in the case of the Preview app) or just stay in endless loop (in case of Quick Look)
       
      As a workaround, in case the tutorial below doesn't work for you, you can use Grab (built-in app in MacOS) to open said files.
       
      This issue DOES NOT occur using the iGPU. So...if you're comfortable using the iGPU, just switch to that and you should be good to go. You don't need this tutorial.
       
      This tutorial is based on @Cyberdevs' research and testing on this topic (especially useful if you're using an RX series AMD video card), and my own very limited time testing this on my rig. I just thought it would be useful to create a new thread for it so that people can discuss this particular issue here.

       
      With that being said, I'll just move on to the actual tutorial.
       
      New (probably better) method.
       
      Switch your SMBIOS in Clover config in regards to the dedicated GPU you're using, instead of the CPU. Take a look here and choose the corresponding SMBIOS closest to your hardware.
      Yeah, that's it.
       
      In case you lose CPU PM with this method, there are multiple ways to fix that, and they do not make the object of this thread.  It worked perfectly fine for me though and I didn't need to change anything else.
       
      Alternatively, you can also try one of the MacPro SMBIOSes, such as MacPro5,1 or MacPro6,1. It was tested multiple times and it showed good results. 
      Keep in mind that choosing these will most likely not display you an iGPU in System Report, since those machines generally (probably all of them) use Xeon CPUs with no iGPUs either.
       
      A simple Lilu plugin
       
      Thanks to vulgo for the plugin and @Matgen84 for sharing and testing it, we now have yet another possible solution to this issue. It's a Lilu plugin (which means that it requires Lilu.kext in order to work) it's called NoVPAJpeg, and it can be downloaded from here.
      You use it as a regular kext, alongside Lilu. I prefer (and recommend) using it within the EFI folder, in Clover/kexts/Other. But if you want to use it in S/L/E, that should work just fine.
       
      More info can be found in this post here.
       
      In case you wanna try alternative medicine  ...
       
      The main thing we need to do is actually very simple: we need to enable the iGPU (integrated GPU) by default, in BIOS, while actually being connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      For ATI GPUs (curtesy of @Cyberdevs' post here).
       
      The discreet GPU should be set as primary in BIOS and your displays should be connected to your discreet GPU
      The iGD/iGPU/iGFX must be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as the secondary GPU.
       
      I removed the DSDT Reconfigured the config.plist to and removed some flags which weren't needed because of the DSDT added the InjectATI + Ornioco Framebuffer (I removed the Orinoco framebuffer because of some weird glitches but it might be useful for other AMD GPUs if you inject the correct framebuffer according to your GPU. No need to inject anything for nVidia GPUs unless your GPU needs it) Added the InjectIntel + ig-platform-id for my intel HD530 (for intel HD 530 I use the 0x19120001 ig-platform-id)  
      Steps 5 to 7 might not be necessary I just did them anyway, if anyone succeeded to get quicklook working without those steps let me know so I can exclude those steps.

           Also confirmed to work with AMD R9 270X on a SandyBridge rig (without an iGPU) using WhateverGreen + Lilu kexts, which also helped to solve the transparency issue along with the Quick Look problem, it also resolved the buggy Screen Capture (Command+Shift+5) issue as well. 
       
          Also, do:
      nvram cleanup kextcache & prelinked kernel rebuild reboot  More info on that here.
       
       
      For NVIDIA GPUs
       
      This is what I needed for my NVIDIA rig and the MSI motherboard in the signature. Your milage may vary, depending on your hardware. But, the idea should be the same regardless.
       
         For MSi motherboads (check out my motherboard details in the signature)
       
      Set your BIOS to use PEG (dedicated GPU) so you can boot.
      Since you're reading this, chances are that you're already connected to the dedicated GPU and the BIOS is set to PEG. So just go into BIOS and see if you're using the iGPU or the dedicated (PEG) graphics device by default.
      If you're already using this, skip to Step 3 (the part AFTER Reboot). Reboot (I think you don't necessarily need to boot into the OS...but you do need to reboot at least until Clover UI) Reboot back into BIOS and set it from PEG to IGD (integrated graphics) WITHOUT removing the cable. Save Reboot again.  
         The result should be that the OS is tricked into thinking you're booting with the IGPU when in fact you're using the dedicated GPU.
       
         For Gigabyte motherboards
       
         Set:
      Peripherals -> Initial Display Output -> iGFX Chipset -> Internal Graphics -> Enabled
           DVMT Pre-Allocation -> default 64M.
           DVMT Total Gfx Mem -> default 256M Save Reboot  
         You should do this with the cable connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      You will also need to patch the iGPU from Clover config.
      1. Graphics -> Inject Intel (UNCHECK Inject Nvidia or ATI if it's checked).
      2. ig-platform-id (in my case for Intel HD 4600 Desktop) it was: 0x0d220003
       
      And use IntelGraphicsFixup.kext (now included into WhateverGreen.kext) in Clover/kexts/Other. In my particular case, without the kext, I would get freezes in Safari.
       
      Another way to activate the iGPU while having the dGPU set as primary is by going into BIOS/SAG/Graphics Configuration/iGPU and setting Multi-Monitor to [Enabled], all the rest remains on [Auto], and set Inject/Intel to [True] in Clover config.*.
       
      Thanks to @gjw for the tip.
       
      *Motherboard dependent. But the multi-monitor option might be the same regardless of manufacturer.
       
       
      This might be a bug with Mojave and it could be fixed by Apple in the future. but in the meantime, feel free to use this if it helps you fix the issue.
       
      For HP motherboards (including laptops), so far no solution, unless the BIOS somehow allows to switch from eGPU to iGPU and vice-versa.
       
      Cheers!

      Salve ragazzi!
      Dopo molti tentativi sono riuscito a fare hackintosh con High Sierra. Ogni sistema operativo ha il suo Hard Disk.
       
      Scheda madre: AsRock B85M (UEFI)
      Processore: Intel i5 4460
      Scheda Video: Palit GTX 960 4 GB
      Ram: 2 schede HyperX Fury 4 GB ognuna.

      Ora ho un po' di cose da risolvere.

      Innanzitutto vorrei scegliere all'avvio del PC quale dei sistemi operativi far partire. Ho fatto la procedura con "moltebestie" (in ogni tipo di opzione nel quick start) ma all'avvio devo sempre inserire la pennetta per poter scegliere Sierra.
       
      Secondo problema è che mi mancano i vari driver, scheda video... E, cosa strana, ho notato che nelle informazioni di sistema mi da che ho 4 GB di Ram invece che 8.


      Ringrazio in anticipo!

      Hello Everybody,

      First Hack here, and I have a fresh vanilla install with Mojave 10.14.2 closely following this vanilla installation:
      https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-ha...p-guide/config.plist-per-hardware/coffee-lake

      I was surprised how well it worked initially with the above suggested settings. Only a few minor things (USB SSDT, signing the Bluetooth Kext, and switching from VritualSMC to FakeSMC) needed to be adjusted to get were I am currently.

      I built this machine to be a video editing/photography workstation. And so far pretty happy but would really appreciate if anyone has any knowledge or solutions with the few problems I'm still experiencing:

      1) FIXED (SEE COMMENT BELOW)
      Sleep issues waking up from sleep (maybe due to the ASMEDIA USB controller)
      -FIX WAS UNRELATED TO ASMEDIA CONTROLLER BUT DUE TO PREFERENCE OF "ALLOW BLUETOOTH DEVICE TO WAKE THIS COMPUTER"/ AN EXTERNAL USB 3 to SATA Cable for Hot plugging SSD's/2.5" HDD's.  With USB to SATA adapter unplugged/ Bluetooth preference changed, Mac now sleeps uninterrupted.

      2)
      The ASMEDIA USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports ejecting after sleep

      3)
      Am I currently using the correct setup for graphic acceleration with a connector-less ID for the UHD 630 and Radeon RX580? Specifically for optimized performance with FCPX. 

      4)
      Normal Power Consumption?


      I've attached my config.plist, ioreg.zip from RUNME app, SSDT-UIAC.aml (created using Rehabman Method), and my DSDT.aml (from this post for the Maximus x code courtesy of @MaLd0n ) If anyone has the time to take a look and maybe shed some light if I've done something wrong that be awesome.

      And for anyone looking to build a similar machine, I would highly recommend it, and feel free to use these settings. If these minor last things are addressed, this is a really solid hack.

      Cheers,
      Shark

      Detailed below is What is Not Working, The Build/BIOS Setup/Install Process, and What is Working.


      NOT WORKING:
      1) Sleep:

      If I put the computer to sleep, or it falls asleep on it's own, it wakes up immediately after sleep.
       
      I’m getting these errors in terminal trying to figure this out using the following two commands:

      Command: pmset -g
      sleep 10 (sleep prevented by powerd, sharingd)

      Command: log show --style syslog | fgrep "Wake reason"
      localhost kernel[0]: (AppleACPIPlatform) AppleACPIPlatformPower Wake reason: XHC


      Here are my current settings:
      Clover:
      Boot -> Darkwake=0 (tried 1 and 2 as well)
      Energy Saver Settings: 
      Nothing Checked EXCEPT Put Hard disk to sleep when possible

      Would like Power Nap Enabled for the purpose of Time Machine, but doesn’t seem to be an option with Hackintosh?

      Using Terminal I have disabled the following:
      sudo pmset -a ttyskeepawake 0
      sudo pmset -a proximitywake 0
      sudo pmset -a standby 0
      sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0

      2) USB 3.1 Gen 2

      For the 2.0/3.0 Intel Chipset, I’ve tried both the @headkaze Intel FB-Patcher v 1.6.8 and @RehabMan instructions on creating a SSDT. The FB-Patcher did not work completely. So I continued with @RehabMan method, created a SSDT, and sacrificed 2 x usb 2.0 ports and 1 internal RGB LED header to reach my 15 port max with 3.0 speeds on all SS ports.

      The ASMEDIA Ports work OOB with full 3.1 speeds. However the Eject issue can only be resolved by using an App like Jettison. And using that app doesn’t solve the sleep issue, computer still wakes. I’d rather figure out why the disks keep ejecting on sleep and if fixing issue #1 would resolve issue #2 or vice versa?

      Do I possibly need a power management ssdt? And how would I create one for the ASMEDIA chip?
       
      I've now tried using the attached DSDT.aml in my Patched folder.  I can now see it's working as my PCI devices in System Profiler are now populating (before it was stating no PCI devices).  However still experiencing sleep and eject issues.

      Ioreg Reads for the ASMEDIA 3.1 controller as:

      The 3.1 controllers for the back USB gen 2 ports are controlled by:
      RP05@1C,4/IOPP/PXSX@0/PXSX@01000000
      PRT1@01100000 (type C) (3.1 speeds)
      PRT2@01200000 (type A) (3.1 speeds)
      PRT3@01300000 (type C) (2.0 speeds)
      PRT4@01400000 (type A) (2.0 speeds)

      The 1 x 3.1 type C port on the front panel is controlled by:
      RP07@1C,6/IOPP/PXSX@0/PXSX@01000000
      HS01@00300000 (2.0 speed)
      SS01@00100000 (3.1 Speed) 

      There is also a SS02@0010000 under this controller, and as far as I can tell it does not have a function. Is there a way to disable, such as when creating an Intel Chipset SSDT?

      3) FINAL CUT ISSUES/ GRAPHIC ACCELERATION:
      Currently it doesn’t appear that the IGPU UHD 630 is doing much in iStats. In Apple System Profile/ Activity Monitor GPU window I only see RX580, no UHD 630. Is this how it should be? Or is that what connector-less ID should look like?

      With FCPX there is no crashing, glitchy exports, or rendering issues, however not sure if Graphic acceleration is being used to its fullest potential.
      The IGPU uses 5-8% Memory/ Processor when playing/scrubbing in timeline.
      And only 5-10% of the IGPU Memory (no processor) is used during any render or export of footage. The RX580 is still doing most of the hard work. My Bruce X times are quick 14-18 seconds, but I’m curious as to why the IGPU isn’t doing any of the lifiting. Is this expected? I'm pretty happy with how Lightroom and Final Cut are performing, I just want to make sure I've set the hardware up correctly.


      4) Power Consumption
      I have a general understanding of building computers, but not an expert especially with first time building a Hackintosh, overclocking, timings, voltages, etc…

      In HWMonitor the CPU Package Core reads blank, CPU Package Total is anywhere from 3.52w to 4.8w, the CPU Package DRAM is anywhere from 1.12 – 5.08. 

      Is this normal, or high? My temperatures seem fine and idle between 45-57 C, And Max shortly at 85 during stress tests.

      So just not sure if the CPU Power Consumption HWmonitor reporting is normal or abnormal. I've attached two HWmonitor screenshots 1 normal idle cpu, one while FCP rendering.

      Bluetooth
      After initial install Bluetooth was seen by Mac System but not recognising any devices
      Thanks to @RehabMan Entered following code in terminal and bluetooth now works:
      sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

      I've now enabled this in my config.plist as well.

      (unsigned kernel extensions need to be enabled. Take the following steps in the Terminal)

      FANS/ TEMPS
      Temps or Fans were not registering with TG Pro using VirtualSMC.kext
      Fixed by switching from VIRTUALSMC.kext with older FAKESMC.kext with sensor gauges kexts. All working now.
      Computer Idles between 46 and 52 Celcius. Hits 81-87 when stress testing.

      USB 2.0/3.0 
      It appears that are physically too many USB ports on the Asus Maximus Code X to ever work with the 15 port limit safely. I created a custom SSDT that disabled USB 2.0 hs07(L),HS08(ML),12(aura led controller) to get usb 3.0 speeds on ss04,ss05, and ss06
      Be curious if anyone ever found a workaround for this...
       
       
      Overclocking:
      RAM:
      2400mhz to 2666mhz with Manual DRAM frequency change in BIOS. Did not change Latency or Timing and no crashing or panics so far. The 2666mhz speed is recognised in About this Mac and the Novabench RAM score increased.
      *Please advise if this method of overclocking the RAM is unadvisable.
       
      CPU:
      4.8ghz @ 75F @ 50% (Prime 95 test)
      Followed these BIOS steps:
